House conservatives call for stripping aid to Libya, Egypt from spending bill
The Hill ^ | Sept. 12, 2012 | Russell Berman

Posted on 09/12/2012 12:16:32 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

A group of House conservatives is calling for foreign aid to Libya and Egypt to be stripped from a six-month federal funding bill set for a vote on Thursday.

A handful of lawmakers voiced outrage Wednesday at the Obama administration’s response to the attacks on the U.S. embassies in those countries and suggested the inclusion of foreign aid could influence their votes.

“It makes it easier to vote ‘no’” on the spending bill, freshman Rep. Jeff Landry (R-La.) said at a press event with conservative House Republicans at the Capitol.

The House on Thursday plans to vote on a continuing resolution that would extend federal funding through March, preventing a government shutdown before the election or during a lame duck session of Congress this fall. While conservatives pushed to avoid a shutdown fight, they have also raised alarms about the inclusion of additional welfare funding in the bill.

Conservatives?

They don’t have a testicle between all of them.

They have supported Obama through Boehner over and over.

As if they have any say. Hussein will do an EO or slip millions under the table to them. Not to say that he’s not already doing that.

Here is the kicker...

While conservatives pushed to avoid a shutdown fight, they have also raised alarms about the inclusion of additional welfare funding in the bill.

Egyptian faux-rage, deadly American dhimmitude, and the return of Islamic Rage Boy;

Update: US Ambassador to Libya, Foreign Service officer, two Marines dead

From Michelle Malkin

...Let’s cut through the diplomatic blather and Obama State Department’s p.c. charade. This isn’t about ordinary Egyptian Muslims being offended by Koran-burning or some genuine outcry for religious tolerance or widespread anger over how Mohammed is being portrayed. It’s about Egyptian imams and Muslim Brotherhood propagandists concocting any excuse for a violent anti-Western conflagration.

So, let’s say you’re right. Are you saying that’s a reason for not doing so? Oh, it’s OK to abdicate your responsibility because someone else will ignore it anyway. Thanks for the moral lesson.

I say de-fund them but a few, selected, real, allies.

If they ever get it back again, let them EARN it. We’ve played Santa Claus and policeman for the world long enough now. We’ve got our own house to get in order and we’re not seeing a cent from any of them.

While we’re at it, de-fund the UN as well.

You mean we shouldn’t fund the efforts of those dedicated to our destruction? How intolerant.

I say kill the aid.

But I was wrong in my earlier post about Egypt violating the peace treaty by moving tanks into the sinai. Apparently they have been coordinating with Israel and are not in violation of it.

But... how will they then pay for the 20 protesters , the RPG's, and all those Guy Fawkes masks?

Kill the aid unless the countries apologize and arrest the mobs who took part in the attacks.

“A handful of lawmakers”... bleh. Lots of bluster and then boo-hoo, nothing can be done about the aid, it’s a closed deal. Same old, same old in DC. Now shut up and send more tax money to aid in your own destruction.

“Won’t change until Obama is booted out and we have a real AMERICAN president in the Oval Office.”

But for now I guess Romney will have to do.

It should be clear now WHO AND WHAT Obama is. He is an internal enemy of America and that long-known fact is now being proven DAILY. Anyone but Obama -— and like him or not, Romney MUST DO. There is no choice for America.

Let me see if I got this correctly:

This guy

Egyptian President Mursi

Who leads the Muslim Brotherhood that murdered this guy

and who just yesterday directed these guys

to attack our embassy in Cairo

is going to the White house to collect a billion dollar check from this guy

So that he can buy the latest German submarines

so that he can better attack this guy

Bibi Netanyahu, our friend and allie, who is trying desperately to save his people from another round of this

while trying to talk to our President, all he gets is this

Does that about nail it?

What are we gonna do Ed? Gee I dunno Trigger. I heard rewarding bad behavior gets you more bad behavior, like with our border. But we'll still get our hay and oats regardless, right? That's right, Trigger. Let's ask Boehner. Hey John, how will this vote affect us? Not at all? OK, that's great. Ed, did you see Carol the other day, in that no-midriff blouse? Hubba! Yeah, and Wilbur wasn't too happy about it. What are we going to do tomorrow Trigger? Oh you know, oats and more oats. Same old same-old. Let's take a nap. OK Ed. Man, what a life. I could do this forever. What's stopping you! Yeah, heh. (whinnies, then snoring, farting)

DO IT!!!! Matter of fact, lets kick the ambassadors of Egypt and Libya out of the USA, and use the Egyptian embassy for a pork packing place and the Libyan for a Jewish MUSEUM.

The GOP must be made extinct and replaced by the Tea Party. Boner is our obstacle today.

I have a better idea give the city of Benghazi Libya the Carthage treatment .
Just for grins & giggles & then ask the leaders of the various Arab countries if the would like some of the same. No pussy footing around simple ROE if it ain’t a friendly kill it , when finished not be able to find 2 complete intact bricks let alone 2 bricks still stuck together.
