THE ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTED MONDAY THAT FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA RELEASED $221 MILLION IN U.S. FUNDING FOR THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY ON THE MORNING OF FRIDAY, JANUARY 20 — JUST HOURS BEFORE HE WAS TO LEAVE OFFICE.
Obama is gone and one poignant image from the day of Trumps inauguration was watching Barak and Michelle leaving Washington in a helicopter.
However, the carnage that he has left after 8 years in office is ongoing and won’t be reversed in a day, a week or a month.
Another paring shot from The outgoing president was giving the Palestinians 221 million dollars. Nice going Barak. Another slap in the face for Israel. Another executive pronouncement that was essentially and end-run around a Republican controlled congress. The emperor strikes again!
So why do I bring this up? Why is it important. It’s important because is shows Obama’s true intentions. It demonstrates, where his allegiances lie. It’s also a sneaky, last-minute political end-run that reeks of imperial authority.
Of course the press isn’t interested in this. As usual they give it a pass and don’t print a word about it. Our media needs a complete overhaul!
Obama made a really bad deal with the Iranians and essentially gave them what amounts to ransom money to the tune of millions of TAX-PAYERS hard earned dollars. In spite of Israel’s Netanyahu proclaiming at the United Nations that this was a very bad deal and essentially begging Obama not to do it. But Obama did it anyway.
Obama’s handing out money without congressional approval is the kind of oligarchy-type actions that I think most Americans are tired of and frankly disgusted with.
In what amounted to a scathing indictment of the Washington political class, Trump proclaimed that America is going to be handed back to the American people. Bully for The Donald!
So we need to start with term limits and cut out the life-time payouts to members of congress even after they’ve left office.
In closing todays post. Obama’s actions speak louder than any political double-speak he could say. He gave the Palestinians a lot of money and snubbed Israel yet again. I’m delighted he’s gone and look forward to Trump’s support of Israel.
I have a BIG announcement later today!
