Obama tells Congress he’s giving Egypt $450 Million

via White House Move to Give Egypt $450 Million in Aid Meets Resistance – NYTimes.com.

The Obama administration notified Congress on Friday that it intends to give Egypt’s new government an emergency cash infusion of $450 million, but the move immediately encountered resistance from lawmakers wary of foreign aid in general and of Egypt’s new course under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The aid is part of $1 billion in assistance that the Obama administration has pledged to Egypt to bolster its economy and its transition to democracy following the overthrow last year of Hosni Mubarak, the country’s autocratic president.

Its fate, however, was clouded because of concerns over some of the new government’s policies and its handling of anti-American protests two weeks ago that overwhelmed the American Embassy in Cairo.

The United States Agency for International Development notified Congress of the cash infusion on Friday morning, prompting renewed protests over the foreign aid and the administration’s handling of crises spreading across the Islamic world.

An influential Republican lawmaker, Representative Kay Granger of Texas, immediately announced that she would act to block the assistance because it came at a point when the American relationship with Egypt “has never been under more scrutiny.”

“I am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and I cannot support it at this time,” Ms. Granger said in a statement.

 That’s odd, because one little blog told you on September 21 that a House vote on a related bill took place on September 13. Temporary spending bill permits $130M a month to Egypt. We linked to the roll call for that vote and guess who voted “AYE”? That’s right. Kay Granger voted to continue funding to Egypt. So did Allen West. Peter King and Michelle Bachmann voted no, but check out all the guilty parties. Then hop over to our post on the Senate vote. Senate votes 81-10 to send unlimited, unrestricted taxpayer funds to Egypt, Libya, Pakistan

If you’re feeling really adventurous you’ll find many posts in our archives telling you that not only is Obama giving $1 billion plus in your tax dollars to those who hate us, but he is also forgiving $1 billion in debt owed to U.S. taxpayers and spending more money helping to stabilize the Muslim Brotherhood’s economy and create jobs. Obama to bypass Congress, Give $1.5B of your taxes to Muslim Brotherhood

He’s also spending $1 billion of your tax dollars on infrastructure projects in Hamas-run Gaza. Obama Funding $1 Billion in Infrastructure Projects…in Hamas-run Gaza

The criminality at the expense of taxpayers is breathtaking. Granger appears to be another hypocrite who is part of the problem.

  1. Totally depressing that Allen West should have signed this!!

  2. I would hope so. The United States needs to stop giving money to these countries that hate us. They will hate us the same for Free.

    Supporting groups that are against the United States as this administration has done falls into a different area:
    ~ A: Treason
    Oran’s Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as “…[a]…citizen’s actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation].” In many nations, it is also often considered
    treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aided or involved by such an endeavor.
    Dictionary Definition of TREASON
    1: the betrayal of a trust : treachery
    2: the offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance or to kill or personally injure the sovereign or the sovereign’s family
    Examples of TREASON
    He is guilty of treason.

    Origin of TREASON
    Middle English tresoun, from Anglo-French traisun, from Latin tradition-, traditio act of handing over, from tradere to hand over, betray — more at traitor
    First Known Use: 13th century
    ~ B: Sedition [si-dish-uhn] noun
    1. incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government.
    2. any action, especially in speech or writing, promoting such discontent or rebellion.
    3. Archaic . rebellious disorder
    The lies just keep on rolling in from the Democrats.
    Why is Mr. Obama even running again when he said he would cut the debt in half his first term and has done nothing but make everything worse with his administrations failed policies.

  3. why on earth did our “knight in shining armor”, allen west, sign this? i am horrified, scandalized, mortified & just plain ticked-off. i had thought that he was our great hope for the future. will he, too, sell out to the muzzie thugs?

  4. I immigrated to Canada in the early 70′s loved it and still do. I love and respect the USA thinking it was the second best country in the world (second best ’cause you guys like to go to war a lot). Sadly I have watched your great country go downhill at an ever increasing speed and I think if BHO gets in again it will be warp speed down the toilet. I can’t believe that some half of the US pop. 150M+people believe it is OK to give countries that can’t run themselves (because they don’t need to) $1.5B (probably a way more hidden) – money that the country does not have. Even worse, pardon and suck up to the countries that hate you and kill US citizens. What happened to the great USA?

  5. The election in November will be the most important election in our countries history. If left-wing, liberal, socialist-communist and Islam lover Obama is re-elected(with the damage he has already done to this country in 3+ years he has been in office) and what he will do in the next 4 years, if re-elected, the country, as we know it, will be gone for ever.
    My best is that the first thing he does, if re-elected is to grant Green Cards to all illegals in this country. He has already granted 1.5+ million green cards to young illegals. Totally illegal. Congress has the power for immigration, not the president. Did anyone try to stop him? NO!
    ANYBODY, BUT OBAMA, IN 2012!!!!

  6. Can I declare myself an Egyptian and get some of that loot? Sure would help pay the bills.

  7. Money we don’t have.

  8. It is up to Congress to CLOSE THE TREASURE TO OBUMMMAA till he has been removed from office. He is trying to DESTROY CAPITILISM as his Father wished to DESTROY COLONIALISM IN KENYA. He is folloeing the CLOWARD AND PIVIN’S theology of how to DESTROY THE USA. BUY AND READ OBAMA’S AMERICA. IT IS ALL THERE!!!! LOCK AND LOAD.

  9. This is so hard to believe!

    What Planet is Obama ON?!

    I think it’s time for Congress to tell Obama Where To GO!

    Obama is OUT OF TOUCH with reality it”s pathetic and sickening!

    Congress! Please tell Obama where to go!!

    We cannot stand to have this poor excuse for a human in charge of our nation anymore!!

    Deny him his Spending Spree! Especially, to our enemies!

    • He is a muslim supporting a goal of a sharia state in America. He is NOT out of touch with muslim brotherhood, which he leads.

  10. Much of the money we give away to these middle eastern countries and money from oil rich nations are to secure territories within the U.S

    Dearborn Michigan and a very large number of other Middle Eastern Cities reside on U.S soil. so you see folks, these Mosques are bought and paid for by us. No go zones are Islamic zones in the U.S meaning stay off until we secure the rest of this country from within by your own hand……

    We can say, You see that Mosque Barack..You built that….

  11. Congress needs to stop this giving money to countries that hate us and investigate Mr. Obama’s eligibility to be POTUS.

  12. Why couldn’t he give 320 million Americans 1 million dollars that will in turn be returned via purchases?

    • The govt’s role is not to give Americans money so they can spend it. For him to give Americans money, he first has to take it from them…via taxes.

      Americans need to realize that federal taxes aren’t paid to prop up foreign nations, for nation destruction nor nation building, for rebuilding mosques, or educating and training foreigners and the dozens of other things our tax dollars pay for (like billion dollar infrastructure projects in Hamas run Gaza where streets and buildings are named after terrorists who killed Americans).

      What is going on is criminal and has been done by all empires – it’s called plunder.

      Those empires eventually ended.

      Get it?

      • Americans should start investing more in their own countries rather in extremely ungrateful foreign countries that are exporting violence and hatred to America and Europe and causing more poverty to America and Europe.
