    Ukraine is not misusing the tens of billions of dollars in direct financial assistance it is receiving courtesy of U.S. taxpayers according to a top Biden administration official. Samantha Power, the administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), gave the public affirmation during a CNN live town hall on Thursday evening. Her assurances came just hours ahead of the White House revealing it would give another $2 billion in military aid to Ukraine as its war with Russia officially hits the one-year mark, bringing the total amount of American military assistance to over $30 billion in one year.

Early April Judicial Watch issued a FoIA request to NSC, demanding records concerning Rices’ government communications on a related range of subjects. House intelligence committee says that legacy NSC staffers, have been slow-walking the subpoenaed materials. “We’ve been waiting since March 15 for this information. //Snipp// The actual records, it seems, have all been transferred...

    Daniel Greenfield August 15, 2022 In June, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction’s office (SIGAR), dispatched letters to Secretary of State Blinken and Samantha Power complaining that the State Department and USAID were stonewalling its investigation of waste, corruption and terror cash. "Two SIGAR audits are also being hindered by a lack of cooperation from State and USAID. The first evaluates your agencies’ compliance with the laws and regulations prohibiting transfers of funds to members of the Taliban and the Haqqani Network," the letter to Power complained. The Haqqani Network, which is allied with Al Qaeda, gained control of...

    In a time when many Americans are struggling to make ends meet, President Joe Biden is ensuring that terrorist-sponsoring regimes stay well-funded. Biden made a commitment to provide hundeds of millions in taxpayer dollars to the Palestinians at a meeting with Palestinian authority leader Mahmoud Abbas on his Israel trip while reaffirming his commitment to the “two-state solution.” “Now, as president of the United States, my commitment to that goal of a two-state solution has not changed in all these years,” he said. “Two states along the 1967 lines were mutually agreed. The swaps remain the best way to achieve...

    The burn rate for this government (Ukraine...) is somewhere between five and six billion dollars a month and that is a staggering burn rate. USAID was part of president Biden's commitment in disbursing a billion dollars to the world bank trust fund. Thanks to congress and rare bipartisanship in this town we have 7.5 billion dollars more direct budget support that we wish to be providing to Ukraine. That is a lot of money and that is money that we know is not going to be enough. We know that more direct budget support is going to be needed down...

    Samantha Power, administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, said the costs of the war in Ukraine include global food and fertilizer shortages, impacting prices for consumers and farmers around the world. "It is just another catastrophic effect of Putin's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine," Power told ABC "This Week" anchor George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. Food prices have risen 34% compared to this time last year, Power said, "aided substantially, again, by this invasion." On Thursday, President Joe Biden asked Congress to consider supplying Ukraine with an additional $33 billion aid package, with $3 billion allocated for humanitarian assistance and...

    Samantha Power, Joe Biden’s administrator of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), on Sunday said countries outside of Ukraine are feeling “huge cascading effects” of Putin’s war through “spiraling food prices.” Power celebrated fertilizer shortages during an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” These people don’t even hide it anymore. They just say the quiet part out loud now. “Fertilizer shortages are real now because Russia is a big exporter of fertilizer and even though fertilizer is not sanctioned, less fertilizer is coming out of Russia. As a result, we are working with countries to think about natural solutions...
  • New film accidentally exposes Team Obama’s foreign-policy naivety

    In a moment of woeful irony in the Obama-administration documentary “The Final Year,” UN Ambassador Samantha Power travels to Cameroon to offer photo-op comfort to families terrorized by Boko Haram — only to have her motorcade kill a 7-year-old boy. Greg Barker, director of this fan film, does his best to downplay the accident: It is discussed while we watch a clip of Power’s convoy moving at a crawl when in fact it was reportedly traveling at over 60 miles an hour when it struck the boy. Despite Barker’s intentions, the handiwork of the Road to Hell Paving Co. is...

    Russia announced sanctions Tuesday on President Joe Biden and several other prominent Americans — including Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, who is known for his international dealmaking and influence-peddling in Ukraine, China, and elsewhere. The sanctions were described by the Russian government as a response to similar sanctions by the Biden administration, which has applied sanctions since Russia invaded Ukraine — after removing some Donald Trump-era sanctions last year. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said: In response to a series of unprecedented sanctions , starting March 15, the Russian stop list includes, on the basis of reciprocity, President Joe Biden,...

    The problem with elected officials isn't always the elected politician themselves, but their behind-the-scenes crew of so-called advisers, counselors and strategists. It's been said, though not anymore, that "behind every great man is a great woman." Oh, is that sexist? Well, too bad. Take, for example, one of our Founding Fathers and second president of the United States, John Adams. He would have never reached the heights he did without the intelligent counsel of his wife Abigail. But the opposite is also true. Behind every bad politician, or bad leaders of any kind, are often even worse advisers. Heck, even...

    The United States will devote funding to help journalists overseas survive frivolous lawsuits meant to silence them, USAID chief Samantha Power announced Thursday. Advertising In a wide-ranging speech, the US Agency for International Development administrator also promised to increase sharply how much American aid is channelled to local groups, vowing to make such assistance more inclusive and effective. Power, herself a former reporter, said that President Joe Biden's administration was setting up a "global defamation defense fund" for journalists as part of his democracy promotion agenda. "We will offer the coverage to survive defamation claims or deter autocrats and oligarchs...

    The Biden regime has sneakily convened a forum in Washington, DC, on October 27–28. Its real purpose—contrary to the stated purpose of fighting corruption—is to assure Guatemala’s border with Mexico remains open. Illegal immigrants can continue to flood our country and become Democrat voters. Guatemala—the key to illegal immigration with its 595-mile border with Mexico—is the only land route from South and Central America to the United States. Migrants from all over the world now pass through Guatemala’s borders. They are open thanks to Biden. Under Obama, Biden abused power to place criminal allies in charge of Guatemala’s judiciary and...

    Senator asks USAID pick Samantha Power about 'advocating on behalf of a foreign sanctioned entity.' The Biden administration’s nomination of Samantha Power to head the United States Agency for International Development is facing congressional scrutiny amid allegations the former Obama administration’s United Nations ambassador personally lobbied to remove a terror-designated group from the U.S. sanctions list. A series of redacted emails obtained by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) as part of an investigation into a nonprofit group that granted U.S. taxpayer funds to the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA), a terror-tied charity sanctioned by the American government, allegedly show that Power...

    The only relevant part of the article is this: According to a senior U.S. government official, Flynn phoned Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak several times on Dec. 29, the day the Obama administration announced the expulsion of 35 Russian officials as well as other measures in retaliation for the hacking. This is the entirety of the info on the Flynn leak in the WP article. Nothing else is written. It seems the reporter got the info from a "senior administration official" who hit the system, verified the date and volume of Flynn calls (and nothing else) to the Russian. Question: The...

It was Denis McDonough, the foreign policy co-ordinator for Obama’s first presidential campaign. Had she seen a certain right-wing news website? She had not. “They have you saying all kinds of crazy sh** about Hillary to the Scotsman,” he told her. The “crazy sh**” included referring to Hillary Clinton, then a presidential candidate, as “a monster” and the observation that “the amount of deceit...
