Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world
ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here.
And THATS just the tip of the iceberg.
THIS will blow your mind!!
They should have 2010 up, but they dont. Thats where youll find Obamas largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.
Its enough to make your head explode
So, put a sell on Google,RAT now, hurry, hurry.
Evidently, Obama is a globalist who really wants to “spread the wealth around”. How is this stuff getting passed? Who is in cahoots with him?
If India is wise, it will see through the fraud that this is just a scheme to transfer American taxpayer wealth to Al Gore.
There is a movie libs love (Enron) where it talks about how investing in energy in India (the Bhopal plant) is a very dangerous thing.
It plays good as an interesting doc, but it’s full of classic junk documentary stuff, like blaming Bush for Enron because they were from the same town and used to go to the same parties. But I specifically remember the line about how foolish it was to deal with India and energy. Perhaps someone else remembers better.
If the Republicans had any leadership in the House of Representatives they would pass a bill defunding this program. They would also pass separate defunding bills for similar gigantic wastes of money. Then hold a press conference, and send a stack of defunding bills to Harry Reid and the Senate. Harry will have two choices — either put the bills up for a vote or bury them. Either way the Republicans have an issue that will resonate with the voting population.
Too bad this is only a dream.
This story is the “green” economy in a nutshell.
