While American eyes, starry and tear filled alike, were turned towards Trump and his inauguration, Obama was sneaking around like a thief in the night. Business Insider reported that, “More than $227 million in foreign affairs funding was released at the time, including $4 million for climate change programs and $1.25 million for U.N. organizations”. Seems a little fishy to approve that in such a short time and under the radar, right?
ABC News went into more detail as to what the money was used for.
“The $1.25 million for U.N. agencies is to be used as voluntary contributions to the U.N. Peace building Fund; the U.N. Special Coordinator on improving the U.N. response to sexual exploitation and abuse; the Montreal Protocol Secretariat, which oversees the protection of the ozone layer; the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights; and the U.N. System Staff College.”
“The $4 million for climate programs includes assistance for clean energy, sustainable landscapes, cutting greenhouse gas emissions and creating a climate technology center.”
“The last-minute allocation also contained $1.05 million in funding for the State Department’s Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan office and the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs.”
As to the $221 million for the Palestinian funds, Business Insider reported that, “The Palestinian Authority,which had been hurting for cash, used the money for ‘salaries unpaid and debts that are owed,'”. Dr. Jonathan Schanzer of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies told Business Insider, “[Obama is ] ‘releasing funds to a guy that’s become an autocrat,'”. Mahmoud Abbas, a Palestinian elected official who was supposed to serve only a 4 year term, is now currently in his 12th year. Our 44th president supports not only the enemy of our ally Israel, but also spending American money on a autocrat who has no respect for democracy.
This is just one of Obama’s final F*** you’s to the American people on his way out the door. Yet his worshipers still claim he can do no wrong. Hopefully one day, people will look back, see the facts with clarity, and see how far he has drug the American people down. We are not a hotel for refugees and illegal aliens. We are not a country ashamed of our past. And we are certainly not bank for other countries.
