At the bottom of our so-called fiscal cliff are foreign countries, mostly Muslim, raking in U.S. taxpayer dough. via Obama Increased Foreign Aid 80%; Spent 76% More on Foreign Aid Than Border Security | CNS News. h/t Free Republic reader cutty

(CNSNews.com) – From fiscal 2008 to fiscal 2011, according to the U.S. Treasury, the federal government increased spending on foreign aid by 80 percent and, in fiscal 2011, spent 76 percent more on foreign aid than it did securing the borders of the United States.

In fiscal 2008, the government spent a total of $11.427 billion in international assistance programs, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. In fiscal 2011, according to the statement, it spent $20.599 billion—an increase of $9.172 billion, or 80 percent, from 2008.

Prior to President Obama taking office, international assistance spending had been trending down for three years, according to the Treasury. In fiscal 2005, it was $14.787 billion. In fiscal 2006, it dropped to $13.914 billion. In fiscal 2007, it dropped again to $12.764 billion. And, in fiscal 2008, it dropped yet again to $11.427 billion.

Since 2008, international assistance spending has increased each year. In fiscal 2009, it climbed to $14.827 billion. In fiscal 2010, it jumped to $20.038 billion. And, in fiscal 2011, it climbed again to $20.599 billion.

By the end of August, after the first eleven months of fiscal 2012, the federal government had already spent $20.058 on foreign aid in that fiscal year. That was well ahead of the $18.439 billion the federal government had spent on foreign aid through August of last year. The Treasury has not yet published the final amount that was spent on foreign aid in fiscal 2012, which ended on Sunday.

While foreign aid spending has climbed over the past four years, spending on border security peaked in fiscal 2009 and has since declined. In fiscal 2008, the federal government spent $9.984 billion on customs and border protection, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. In fiscal 2009, that increased to $12.122 billion. But, in fiscal 2010, that dropped to $11.376 billion. In fiscal 2011, it increased slightly to $11.698 billion—still less than the $12.122 billion spent on customs and border protection in fiscal 2009.

Through August of fiscal 2012, spending on customs and border protection was $11.259 billion, ahead of the $10.656 billion on customs and border protection spent through August of fiscal 2011.

The $20.599 billion spent on foreign aid last year was 76 percent more than the $11.698 billion spent on customs and border protection.

Back in 2009 we told you that Obama was giving Billions to our Enemies.

  4. “WE, the People…” don’t have enough money to educate our children, but…President, OBOZO, is going to “give” foreign countries BILLIONS of dollars so they can buy weapons, AND bring enemy troops into “our” country, support and train them, so “they” can kill “our” servicemen & women…EVERYWHERE???

    “What’s wrong with this picture?”

    ARE “WE, THE PEOPLE…” SO BLIND AND DUMB-FOUNDED, THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON?

    OR

    HAS THE MEDIA BEEN SO “CENSORED” THAT THEY NO LONGER HAVE THE ABILITY TO REPORT ANY DISSEMINATING TOWARD THE DICTATORSHIP THAT IS ALREADY IN PLACE IN AMERICA?

    “IMPEACH, OBOZO…NOW!!!” (I know, can’t be done, SAD…huh!)

    Take Care and God Bless!

  5. Google is not allowing me just send the story I’ve tried and tried

    Sent from my Galaxy S®III

    • @pamelajane48, do you mean from a g-mail address or from a blogger site that you have?
      Of course, either way this is bad news.
      Google CEO has gotton cozy with Obamanation so this does not surprise me that they are censoring in Islime’s favor.

  6. Stupid American infidels. The billions transfered to beloved islamic counties are a small part of the JIZYA. You have been conquered by islam and 9/11 was a symbol as well as the reason we have placed a Caliph over you untill the brave soldiers of allah can march in to rape and destroy your country. You have been warned. The Caliphs civilian army “stronger and better equipped than your military” and soon the Kenyan and Somallies will rise up as the commanders of this army.

    • “F**K OFF!” I’m easy to find! Come here and tell me that to my face!

      I’ll send to meet your Allah before your body hits the ground!

      Forgive Lord, but, I’m “still”…only human!

      • you dumbass, he’s trying to poke you to see IF YOU WOULD ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING INSTEAD OF BITCHING LIKE A DUMB WHORE ON THE INTERNET. Capisce?

    • Jerry – Oops, I think you forgot to indicate you were being sarcastic! Clearly you were assuming the idiot position to demonstrate what their repulsive line of thought (as it were) must certainly be. A little gallows humor.
      You made good points, though. Muslims, those arrogant, ungrateful sacks of feces who come here to take advantage of our castrated government, have been annoying the world since the devil became incarnate under the guise of a cretinous pedophile named Muhammed.
      Honestly folks, you had to know it was not a mudslime posting that – the spelling was too good!
      Gotta go…my dog is going after my bacon and I am afraid she may knock over my beer….

      • …which would get your Glock all sticky, lady.

        No worries fellow creepers bob and sda, people are on edge now. I suspect that is right where they want us. If there is a crisis they will use it.

        Dang, I wish we were organized.
