It’s an Obama world.
Earlier this month outside the US Embassy in Cairo Egyptian Presidential Candidate Tawfiq Okasha called for the expulsion of US Ambassador Anne Patterson, the “enemy of humanity” who “bathes in a sea of the blood of others.”
The crowd loved it.

Despite the recent anti-American activities in Egypt the Obama Administration told Congress today it will waive democracy requirements and release $1.5 billion in US aid to the Muslim Brotherhood dominated government in Egypt.
The PJ Star reported, via Free Republic:

The Obama administration told Congress on Thursday it will waive democracy requirements to release up to $1.5 billion in aid to Egypt despite concerns that the country is backsliding on commitments it made to democratic governance and rule of law.

U.5 officials and lawmakers said Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has determined that it was in the U.S. national interest to allow $1.3 billion in military assistance to flow. She also certified that Egypt is meeting its obligations to the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty, which frees up an additional $200 million in economic aid, they said.

A senior State Department official said the decisions “reflect our overarching goal: to maintain our strategic partnership with an Egypt made stronger and more stable by a successful transition to democracy.”

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because congressional notifications are not complete. Clinton will sign the waiver on Friday, the official said.

U.S. officials had said last week that Clinton was poised to grant the waiver because she could not certify that Egypt was in full compliance with the democracy requirements of law.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, who wrote the legislation imposing conditions on the aid, said he was “disspointed” by the decision.

  1. Every Concerned U.S. Citizen Should Be Screaming NO to Our Politicians and STOP THIS !!!

  2. Heard this first tonight on Hannity. He predicted this sometime ago. This is truly alarming and it seems to have the okay of the his administration.

    “Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has determined that it was in the U.S. national interest to allow $1.3 billion in military assistance to flow. She also certified that Egypt is meeting its obligations to the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty, which frees up an additional $200 million in economic aid, they said.”

    So, this in essence is a deal and what a deal, indeed. Pray, because they have just given the enemy our money. This isn’t going to fly very well. I see disaster in the making.

    Our money aiding Terrorists. That is how I take this, anyone else want to comment.

    The Muslim Brotherhood will be elected as the leaders of Egypt. Do you really believe they are going to chummy up with Israel.

  3. This is truly another time, another in a hundred times for Calls TO OUR REPRESENTATIVES FOR IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS.

  4. There are some guests on Fox who don’t have a reason or a clue why Obama is getting away with all he has done. The Solyndra Matter where he blames Republicans was on of the many LAST STRAWS in a 100 of LAST STRAWS.

    What is happening and why can’t something be done. I do believe that Congress should pass a law or many there is something in the Constitution to start proceedings or hearings into Obama inefficiencies as president.

  5. STUPID, Stupid. stupid! Obama will never be ready for the 3AM phone call and Hillary won’t even be able to find the phone should it ring.

    Borrowing money from china; to give to the muslim brotherhood; which will institute sharia barbarism into the egyptian constitution; then fund terrorism against the US, Israel and the west; which will lead to more dead civilians.

    And Obama gets away with this because of his protective coloring. The Weeper of the House won’t say anything, neither will the rest of the STUPID party hacks.

    God has certainly turned a blind eye toward America.

    The jews have an ancient saying that roughly translates to,

    “Good deeds bring forth the desire to create more good deeds;
    Sins produce the impetous for further sinning;
    Immorality entices more immorality.”

    The destruction of America by Obama and the democrat party induces further
    cravings to ultimately destroy America.

    The arabists in the US state department claiming America needs and relies upon a strategic partnership with egypt’s muslim brotherhood shows how far and fast this country has fallen.
    Egypt: a country that is absolutely, positively, monetarily broke makes them a true partner with America. We are broke, too. And there is no one in DC to fix us.

    “As you sow, so shall you reap.” We are still paying for Carter’s mistakes; who knows if America will last long enough to fully pay back for obama’s election to office.

  6. I do believe that Congress should pass a law or “many” there is something “maybe”

    Correction: I do believe that Congress should pass a law or legislation, something.

  7. I heard recently that Hezbollah had 100′s of agents living in the U.S. maybe there is something more to this trade of sorts that we aren’t aware of. No matter what it is this nation is seriously suffering and we don’t have a pray.

    We are done if Obama is re-elected. I said that before elections of 08 put this time after all he has done to destroy us. WE REALLY WILL BE. The only hope above all hopes is a Majority Republican, in the Congress and Senate.

  8. Hannity is on now, he will be talking about this again later in his show.

  9. The Obama administration told Congress on Thursday it will waive democracy requirements to release up to $1.5 billion in aid to Egypt…

    As usual with Obie, it’s all backwards – our enemies get a windfall, while friends and allies (up until the time Obie took office) get the crap treatment.

  10. Obama bypasses Congress and gives 1.5 billion to Muslim Brotherhood.

    Congress has restricted and, in fact, halted military aid to Egypt until and “unless the State Department certifies that Egypt is making progress on basic freedoms and human rights.” After all, Christians and other practitioners of non-Islamic religions have had a tough go of it there. And of course, many Egyptian officials harbor such hatred toward the U.S. that one of the candidates for the Egyptian presidency has openly referred to America as the “infidel country” in media interviews.

    Nevertheless, the news breaking now is that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will soon announce that President Obama will “resume funding for Egypt’s military, despite Congressional restrictions and objections from human rights and democracy advocates.”

    Even Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT), a man with whom I’ve never agreed on anything, sees the foolishness of this endeavor: “I believe [sending the aid] would be a mistake. The new [restrictions were] intended to put the United States squarely on the side of the Egyptian people who seek a civilian government that respects fundamental freedoms and the rule of law, and to clearly define the terms of our future relations with the Egyptian military.”

    Who knows; perhaps the Obama administration can also circumvent Congress and give the Iranians some nuclear materials or give Hamas some advanced weaponry? I know both ideas sound crazy, but they’re no crazier than giving $1.5 billion in military aid to the Muslim Brotherhood.

  11. This may be blackmail or some other extortion. I wonder what’s on the “negatives”?

  12. This may be blackmail or some other extortion. I wonder what’s on the “negatives”?

  13. Obama truly needs to be taken on the carpet. Why is he getting away with these things.

    I don’t care if there isn’t a majority in the Senate (Republicans) I as an American citizen need to know why and what is happening in Washington. Are they afraid of Obama.

    Remember the recess appointments. Yes, Presidents have done this but not like Obama. And then this:

    Obama BRAGS about Bypassing Congress.

    http://cowboybyte.com/4588/obama-brags-about-bypassing-congressagain/

  14. Michelle Bachman and Rand Paul send Hillary Clinton a letter about this. They seem to be the only two who have done this. Of course others are livid. They would have to be.

    This is our money and our kids money. The failures and divisiveness of Obama are way too many. We cannot Afford a president who ignores our Congress. This cannot be a pattern that can continue without outcry. More of us need to call or email do anything we can to have our representatives represent us and our kids future.

    That said I do believe this decision that was made by him alone is so important that ignoring Congress is irresponsible, once again.

  15. FYI: We are getting loads of complaints about posting comments tonight. We just switched to a different server this week. We will work on this more on Friday. Thanks for your patience.

  16. and 0bama wonders why most people believe he is a muslim and not a christian?
    *lmao*
    ….his actions kind of tell you his loyalties aren’t with the USA….
    funding a terror group that will or could likely set something up towards a new 9/11 attack
    ….why reason does he have to do this? …it’s not in our best interests.

    for future prospects this only gives hamas and their kind the opportunity for greater harm on others.

  17. Has to support his people…. Unions and Muslim terrorists cant decide which is worse

  18. We are getting loads of complaints about posting comments tonight.

    It does seem to have been acting a little odd today.

  19. I’m not a constitutional lawyer, but I thought separation of powers meant that the legislative branch had “power of the purse,” to determine where money was spent. While the executive has lots of powers, including the power to act in many circumstances without approval from Congress, I was under the impression that the executive could not spend money without Congressional approval.

    Unless there is some provision in the law allowing the president to “waive” democracy requirements, an executive power-grab on billions of dollars would be unconstitutional–right? If Obama can seize the legislature’s power, what checks are left? What the hell is happening to our Democracy?

    “Democrats: Not So Democratic”
