Obama proposes $800 million in aid for "Arab Spring"
http://www.reuters.com/ ^

Posted on 02/13/2012 11:04:19 AM PST by jakerobins

The White House announced plans on Monday to help "Arab Spring" countries swept by revolutions with more than $800 million in economic aid, while maintaining U.S. military aid to Egypt.

In his annual budget message to Congress, President Barack Obama asked that military aid to Egypt be kept at the level of recent years -- $1.3 billion -- despite a crisis triggered by an Egyptian probe targeting American democracy activists.

Obama proposes $800 million in aid for "Arab Spring" the terrorist Al-Qaeda militia in Libya and the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

Here, I've fixed it.

Lest we forget that 19 American citizens are actually held as hostages in Egypt.

Congress needs to KILL any appropriations for that purpose and block any further expendature’s that are not for the benefit of the United States.

Funding the Muslim Brotherhood and the terror groups they support are Not in our best interest.

American military aid to Egypt should consist of a small number of nukes delivered to remove the Aswan High Dam.

i have a better idea. Tell them all to pound sand (of which they apparently have copious amounts). I figure the arabs have plenty of money. Let them spend their own, rather than just tuck it all into their swiss bank accounts.

“Not a day goes by that this bunch of morons does something that makes me want to scream and pull my hair out. This is today’s”


And why shouldn’t he continue to do this? Nobody is stopping him. He exceeds his constitutional authority daily and yet in a country which stinks to high heaven with lawyers there is not one beating down the doors of the USSC to dial back this out of control government. I cannot believe they are ALL in bed with these Marxists.

While this sub-human is the latest to exceed his authority many before him have also and WE THE PEOPLE have allowed it. So again I say; “Why shouldn’t he continue to do this?”

Think about it. How many cases have you read about recently where the USSC, or lower courts said we the people have no standing? WTF? If that is not a pitch fork moment or a test of the 2nd Amendment I do not know what will ever be.

Obama Admin to Leverage Foreign Aid for LGBT Rights
The White House said:

Following an interagency process coordinated by the National Security Staff, this memorandum directs the first-ever U.S. government strategy dedicated to combating human rights abuses against LGBT persons abroad. Today’s memorandum applies to the Departments of State, the Treasury, Defense, Justice, Agriculture, Commerce, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the Export-Import Bank, the United States Trade Representative, and such other agencies as the President may designate.

I don’t call POTUS, Barack Hussein “Muslim Brotherhood Adoree” Obama for nothing!!! I have told you folks over and over again, Obama is not one of us, he is working with his Muslim brethren to destroy these United States of America!!! Believe me, he is more “Radical Muslim” then “Patriotic American”!!!

Get it through your heads & hearts folks, Obama and his “Hate America” wife, Michelle are destroying our country!!! And....the Democrat Party is abetting him and her willingly with glee!!! November, 2012 cannot come soon enough!!!

I just hope and pray that the American people & voteers get it, because I read a lot of poppycock on this very site, about conservatives sitting on their hands because their boy or girl did not get the nomination!!! That position is pure lunacy IMHO!!!

Whoever the candidate is, mine is Rick Santorum, we all must support him or her. The future of our great country is at stake. Shucks, I’d vote for the “Junkyard Dog” over anti-American Obama!!!

With a Leftist Moslem in the White House, this comes as no surprise.

Nowhere in the constitution does it mention aiding Moslems to conquer the Middle East; no matter, the constitution has long since become an irrelevant and antiquated curiosity which means nothing and impedes no one - except those intent on retaining some semblance of legality in government.

And such people become more and more rare with every passing day.

Can Obama just 'will it'. Or does he have to get Congressional approval?

Of course; not hearing any 'hue and cry' from Repubs; or maybe their protest is a 'silent scream'?
