Exactly!!! But, Joe Biden doesn’t care about the facts, nor about actually solving this issue. It’s just politics..and in his declining mental health, from his perspective…If Trump does it this way, I’ll do it the other way. It’s really that sophomoric and simple. Joe, and his campaign, don’t care about the fact that the Palestinian Authority (sometimes called the PLA or PLO) funds Hamas; an Islamic terrorist organization!! President Trump was absolutely right to cut off American TAX-PAYER funding to a terrorist organization, and demand reforms. After all, why on earth would we give TAX-PAYER monies to an organization that hates us and would kill every single one of us, if it could?!? How crazy is that?!? Thanks to Joel B. Pollak for that excellent assessment.
Smart negotiating! And, kudos to the Trump Administration for playing hardball with Islamabad! For far too long, we’ve been sending them BILLIONS of our hard-earned tax dollars almost as if we’ve been bribed…and Pakistan has done nothing to reign in the Haqqani network, as well as Taliban, Al Qaeda and other Islamo-wack terrorists being protected within it’s borders. It’s this dance we’ve been doing with them for over 15 years. And, nothing has changed. Time to have a paradigm shift. And thanks to Trump and Sec. Mike Pompeo, it looks like we finally may be shaking up the relationship a little and putting some over-due pressure on Islamabad to get off their butts and address the elephant in their house. Excellent!! 🙂
This should outrage every clear-thinking American. The audacity of Obama to just send over $200 MILLION dollars of our hard-earned tax dollars to the Islamic terrorist affiliated Palestinian government is shocking, and deeply offensive! Trump should do everything in his power to stop that cold in its tracks if at all possible. Not only is it outrageous, and offensive.. But, it sends absolutely the WRONG message to that part of the world. Obama always loved to cozy up to dictators, communist nations, Islamic wackos, and other evil regimes…while throwing our friends under the bus. This was one of Obama’s final acts of giving we-the-taxpayer, and Israel, the finger. Awful..
And just think.. Our hard-earned tax dollars are paying for these little brain-washing, terrorist camps disguised as “schools.” If you’re outraged, you’re not alone. We need to demand from our members of Congress that they defund tax-payer funding of this, and other wasteful UN nonsense, immediately! Funding this is funding the next generation of Islamic wacko terrorists…who will end up attacking us, and our interests, some day.
That’s our Obama administration for ya..just giving away are hard-earned tax dollars to China. And Obama has the nerve to demand tax INCREASES. Congress should cancel ALL foreign aid to China. They are NOT an ally. They are an adversary. And, frankly, they don’t need OUR money. They’re doing just fine. Besides, it’s not in our national security interests to be giving them millions on American taxes. It makes ZERO sense.
What? Corruption and waste of American dollars by the federal government? Nahh… Not possible! lol It seems like each time we send foreign aid to some country (a concept I’m, in general, very much opposed to), it seems to disappear and never is used for the purposes its intended for. Thats because government is inherently corrupt and inefficient. IF we’re gonna be throwing millions, if not BILLIONS, of hard-earned American tax dollars at another country’s problem (in this case, Ebola), then it had better be used wisely, and every dollar accounted for. The American people deserve nothing less.
Are you serious?!?! Why on EARTH are we sending $212 MILLION DOLLARS of hard-earned, tax-payer monies to the Hamas-lead Palestinian government to rebuild their settlements after the Israelis decimated them.. And why was that? Because Hamas was attacking innocent Israeli citizens. This is a problem between Israel and the people of Palestine. And, if the Palestinian people are too stubborn and stupid to separate themselves from Hamas, then they should live with the consequences of that. Its not our problem to have to pay for THEIR mistakes. This is another pathetic patronizing of our enemies. Hamas would wipe us out in a nano-second if they could…and yet we’re sending them $212 MILLION tax-payer dollars?!?!? Call your member of Congress and your two U.S. Senators and tell them to NOT send ANY foreign aid to Palestine until they totally reject any affiliation with Hamas! We cannot keep sending millions of our tax dollars to countries and terrorist organizations like Hamas. Its breathtakingly stupid and goes totally against our national security interests; something Obama has a habit of doing a LOT. Now, hes just robbing us at point blank range, and giving our money to terrorists….and calling it “foreign aid.” This should infuriate every tax-paying American!
Doesn’t look like Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) bill will go anywhere. But, as a matter of principal, I definitely support his efforts to cut off foreign aid to the new Hamas-backed regime in Palestine. We should only send tax-payer funded foreign aid in extremely rare situations, with a LOT of strings (i.e. we get something tangible out of it, not just “good will”), and only to countries friendly to us, and it is in our national security to do so. Sending our hard-earned, U.S. tax-payer,by our President, to a terrorist-backed regime is foolish, and is contrary to our national security interests. So, again, I applaud Sen. Paul’s efforts here. Its too bad that he has only received less than two dozen supporters thus far.
What? Corruption in Mexico? U.S. aid being wasted? Nahhh…. Yeah, we need to stop ALL aid to Mexico entirely. That’s ridiculous! Use those funds to help secure the border and enforce laws already on the books. Mexico won’t change its culture of rampant corruption anytime soon. And, sending them $1 BILLION of tax-payer funded cash won’t help fix it. It’ll probably only make things worse. So, Congress needs to stop any and ALL foreign aid to Mexico immediately. We’re $17.5 TRILLION in debt and climbing. We cannot afford to throw BILLIONS of dollars in foreign aid to countries who squander it like this. We have our own problems to fix. Its time we did, and stop trying to fix everyone else’s. Heres a Tweet: #BringbackourMONEY
