As air traffic is intentionally made more dangerous, veterans are denied healthcare and White House tours are shut down, the spigots of increasingly worthless fiat money are flowing to our enemies. Taxation for everything but what it was intended for. Plunder plain and simple.
US President Barack Obama has pledged to Jordan an additional $200m (£131m) to help deal with the growing number of Syrian refugees in the country.
After talks in Amman, Mr Obama said the funds – if backed by Congress – would help provide more humanitarian aid.
Some 450,000 Syrians have fled to neighbouring Jordan since the unrest began in 2011, putting huge pressure on the Jordanian authorities.
Meanwhile, Jordan’s King Abdullah ruled out closing Jordan’s border with Syria.
President Obama said he would ask Congress to provide additional funds as “budget support” to help the Syrian refugees.
He said this would help improve basic services at refugee camps along the Jordan-Syria border.
The US is already the largest single donor of humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees.
A $500 million reading-skills project has been unveiled by the Obama Administration. And young readers all around the globe—except United States citizens—will benefit from it.
The Assistance to Basic Education Learn to Read Now, or ABE LEARN, program is seen by the administration as a key step in carrying out the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Education Strategy 2011-2015.
According to a Request for Proposals that Patriot Update located via routine database research, ABE LEARN specifically is aiming to attain Goal One of that plan: Improve the reading skills of 100 million primary grade-school children globally.
The agency said that it “holds itself accountable for results in basic education” globally.
Learning levels also are “alarmingly low” in countries such as Mali, Pakistan and Peru. According to USAID, “more than 70 percent of children in the primary grades” in those nations are unable to read grade-level material.
And so we know where the majority of the stolen tax receipts will end up – Islamic countries.
Earlier this week we told you that Obama handed over $500M to Hamas-run Palestine thanks to the willingness of the most corrupt and inept Congress ever assembled.

“And that’s not all,” Poe said. “Since the sequester, the administration has approved $37 million in foreign aid to Pakistan.”
