WASHINGTON, Nov. 14 -- The U.S. Department of State issued the following fact sheet:

Since the first days of the Obama Administration, the Department of State has prioritized fostering global innovation and entrepreneurship as a key pillar of its economic statecraft and broader foreign policy agendas. Much of this activity has focused on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), a region brimming with entrepreneurial energy and talent. Recent transitions in the region have only reaffirmed the importance of this work as citizens have demanded broad-based economic opportunity and advancement.


Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) Programming: Across the Middle East and North Africa, ongoing MEPI programming supports a new generation of entrepreneurs by offering skills-building training, mentoring, business development support, increased access to capital, and job placement assistance. When finished, these programs will ultimately support approximately 170,000 people from the region. MEPI is also building the capacity of over 40 business development organizations, commercial development organizations, and local and regional Chambers of Commerce to improve trade facilitation and access to capital services for their membership. Finally, MEPI programming is also providing technical assistance to improve legal frameworks and financial institution practices as well as training for regulatory officials to promote improvements in the business enabling environment throughout the region.

U.S. taxpayer dollars are being thrown around like confetti in the Mideast.

Most important: U.S. private citizens and businesses are jumping in on the play.

You think the U.S. government is against terrorism ?

Fat chance. It's like a gold rush. We're building those countries up economically -

regardless of who we deal with.

We are creating an islamic monster.

the Benghazi MEPI list.

Terrorism does not exist !

Tell your friends !

You won’t hear this on Fox news, it’s a secret.

We’re building the islamic middle eastern countries into economic powerhouses !

This is the “smart” way to support American interests abroad. It’s the culmination of Demo-Repub doctrine of the last 30 years. We have won, there simply are no problems in the middle east. Well, none that economic progress can’t solve.

Book your business excursion tickets to the mideast now, avoid the rush.

It was no surprise to see the chamber of commerce mentioned prominently in the State Department fact sheet. They’ve been heavily invested in destroying our culture by facilitating the illegal invasion for quite awhile.

News releases like this make it difficult for the most stubborn amongst us to deny the shadow collusion of US political leaders with the architects of One World Order through the federal bureaucracy they created.

Does anyone doubt their ultimate plans for the engine that is funding their diabolical scheme will not be favorable to We the People?
