Obama Gives Egypt $450 Million 2 Weeks After Protesters Storm US Embassy

It’s an Obama world…

Obama gave the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood government $450 million two weeks after protesters stormed the US embassy and torched the American flag.
The New York Times reported:

The Obama administration notified Congress on Friday that it would provide Egypt’s new government an emergency cash infusion of $450 million, but the aid immediately encountered resistance from a prominent lawmaker wary of foreign aid and of Egypt’s new course under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The aid is part of the $1 billion in assistance that the Obama administration has pledged to Egypt to bolster its transition to democracy after the overthrow last year of the former president, Hosni Mubarak. Its fate, however, was clouded by concerns over the new government’s policies and, more recently, the protests that damaged the American Embassy in Cairo.

The United States Agency for International Development notified Congress of the cash infusion on Friday morning during the pre-election recess, promptly igniting a smoldering debate over foreign aid and the administration’s handling of crises in the Islamic world.

    Attention ELECTED Republicans………………..Unless you are in an extremely tight race, get yourselves back to DC today.

    Have you noticed the ME is burning? Hussein’s chemicals have been moved and lost?

    Why have you not already returned and started working on this??????????????

    Do you think the world stops for Obama’s vacations and your campaigns? Nope. It’s burning and some fool is bowing and apologizing and giving AMERICAN dollars.

    I do not like it worth a d*** that you have not already returned and at least showed more interest than Obama. What does it take?

  • donh

    Buy off the 47% with free cell phones , and you can openly preach a final solution for the jews. A re-elected Obama will ” let me be clear ” about his true anti-semetic agenda. He will make far more bolder statements regarding the criminal ZIONIST bankers to blame for all the world’s problems. Blaming Bush will fundamentally transform into blame the jew.

  • Limousine Barry

    What’s wrong?

    It’s only the Taxpayer’s money I am giving away!

    Let me be clear, the murder of our white Ambassador and his small security team are just bumps in the road… to a 100% Muslim Middle East! Haha!

    Once Israel is gone then one more speed bump will be achieved. This is the way I conduct the destruction of our allies in the Middle East. It’s Hip!

    And, this is important! Send me $3.00 before midnight! My campaign bus is running out of expensive diesel fuel!

    I know that gas prices are high. But, if I am reelected I promise to make them higher! Have a nice time paying for expensive gas at the pump! Good day!

  • regularguy

    Think of all the green jobs here in the states he won’t be wasting this money on, and instead will waste it on people who will hate our guts anyway.

  • Lotte I von Bromssen

    This despicable usurper in the W.H. belongs in something equivalent to a North Korean Gulag for treason against the United States of America, as does his entire administrate. End of story. I can’t wait for this con artist to pack his bags and get to hell out of the Peoples House and have Mitt Romney move in and put some class and pride back into the presidency.

    Obama, the gift that keeps on giving our money away. And to whom, Terrorists, well, I say, this should be brought up at the debates but because in is being host by PBS it is highly doubtful.

    Sure, money for a job well done. It would have been an even $500 million, but they effed up and killed the ambassador. The other $50 million went to the press as hush money.

    It remains unclear whether President Barack Obama’s lies about attacks on U.S. embassies will cost him re-election. One thing is certain, however: whatever ambitions Secretary of State Hillary Clinton once held to run for president in 2016 have been damaged beyond repair. Obama was literally asleep when the proverbial “3 a.m. call” came, but Clinton–who bears responsibility for embassy security–was asleep on the job for weeks.

    Clinton’s response–“How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?–bears the same naïveté for which she once mocked her Democratic rival in debates and campaign commercials. Both Obama and Clinton suffer the same self-delusion: that the world loves Democrats and hates Republicans, that it loves flower children and hates cowboys. Benghazi is a wake-up call they should not have needed–not after the first 9/11, not after Bill Clinton’s “law enforcement” approach to terror failed.

    In that sense, Hillary Clinton has failed her first test as a potential commander-in-chief–just as Obama has failed before. The success of the Osama bin Laden raid will be the enduring legacy of his administration–but the Ft. Hood shootings, the underwear bomber (and its associated intelligence failures), and now the 9/11/12 attacks are symptoms of an administration ideologically consumed with avoiding the reality of radical Islam.

    Hillary Says Goodbye to 2016 Chances

    Hillary Clinton has not only carried out the worst of Obama’s foreign and national security policies–she has done so enthusiastically, shouting at Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for 45 minutes in 2010, for instance. Clinton’s deputy, UN Ambassador Susan Rice, has set new lows in both dishonesty and absenteeism.

    Voters care about national security and foreign policy–increasingly so, even though the economy predominates. If she follows through on what many anticipate (despite denials) are her 2016 ambitions, Hillary Clinton will have a tough time convincing

    This was written a couple month ago, can you imagine what could be written NOW.

    Obama’s Friends Are America’s Enemies

    Reports that President Obama has invited newly elected Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi to meet with him in the United States should deeply trouble every American.

    President Morsi is the standard-bearer of the Muslim Brotherhood, and so his victory has propelled the beliefs of his radical movement into the international spotlight. The group’s motto reads: “Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Koran is our law; Jihad is our way; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

    True to their motto, the Muslim Brotherhood’s leaders have a long history of threatening jihad against the United States and Israel.

    In 2006, Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the group’s spiritual leader, said, “We do not disassociate Islam from war. On the contrary, disassociating Islam from war is the reason for our defeat. We are fighting in the name of Islam. Religion must lead to war. This is the only way we can win.”

    In a 2010 sermon, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide Muhammad Badi said that America is “experiencing the beginning of its end and is heading towards its demise.” Badi also stated in the sermon that “the improvement and change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life.”

    And just last week, Badi used his weekly sermon to reaffirm his commitment to jihad against Israel.

    Americans need to look no further than the words from the Muslim Brotherhood to understand that they are not a friend of America or Israel. In April, White House officials already made the mistake of meeting with members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Repeating that mistake again will only demonstrate President Obama’s commitment to a foreign policy of appeasement instead of speaking the truth about our enemies.

    I call on President Obama to insist that President Morsi repudiates the Muslim Brotherhood’s calls for jihad; and if President Morsi does not, President Obama should refuse to meet with him in the United States.

    If these are President Obama’s friends, who are his enemies?

    This nation and this Washington is compiled of both parties and some are even in the Communist Party.

    But you would think among all these representatives, voted into office mind you, there would be someone who could stop taking our money and do something about a crisis that is rearing its ugly head.

    Obama Bypasses Congress, Gives $1.5 Billion to Muslim Brotherhood

    March 22, 2012

    Obama Administration Gives 1.5 Billion to Muslim Brotherhood

    [“I consider the Brotherhood to be a threat to Egypt,” said one of
    the eight, prize winning novelist Gamal el-Ghetani. “We are living
    a moment that may be similar to (Adolf) Hitler’s rise to power.”
    ]

    [“People here are against the United States helping Ennahda,” a
    journalist told Totten. “All Americans who come here are against
    the Islamists, but the American government is supporting them
    . I
    wish we had a good, modern, respectful Islamic party. I’m a Muslim
    and I’m proud of it, but I’m not proud of this party.”

    The government is seen as far too cozy with radical Salafists,
    looking the other way as the radicals stake a claim to the new
    society. Ennahda members joined the Salafists in a recent rally
    calling for Sharia law in Tunisia.]

    Obama is a traitor and a criminal. Arrest him. Isn’t there a set anywhere in the U.S. law enforcement.

  • All part of stealing from the poor to give to the rich, themselves.

    ‘Marxism’s philosophy declares that human nature is good but the structures of society have to be changed because the “rich” capitalists are greedy and responsible for the misery of the poor. Changing the environment will make them good and free from misery. That gives Marxists the “philosophical” basis to steal the property of others. Wherever Socialists enforced this philosophy it produced economic disaster and poverty for the population but not for themselves, they make themselves rich at the expense of others.’

    THE BATTLE FOR GLOBAL POWER

    Hussein bin Obama favors Muslims and so, too, did Hitler.

    ‘”Hitler, Goebbels, Goering and the rest of the Nazis, inadequate to a man, were both pathological and pragmatic liars. They lied so convincingly and so hugely that most statesmen from other countries could not believe that what they were hearing was a lie “One of Hitler’s biggest lies was constantly to assure the world of peaceful intentions while obviously planning war by building up massively strong armed forces.” [John Laffin, “Hitler warned us.”]

    When Saddam Hussein grew up, he did in the shadow of a giant portrait that hung on the wall of his father’s house, a portrait of the face of a man his father adored above every other political leader. It was the face of Adolph Hitler!’

    What is that crook Obama doing now, paying for the next attack on Americans? If this isn’t treason, I don’t know what is.

    Congress may or may not be able to do anything about Obama’s thuggery, however,
    they can make a lot of noise!!!! Which would let people know what is going on. Then
    there is the media who wouldn’t do their jobs to let the people know.

    BTW, Obama made over 900 “executive orders” to circumvent congress.

    Typical Looney Liberal Obama believes he can solve all the worlds problems by throwing away our money. Yet I read an article today saying that Ann Romney is worried about Mitt’s mental health.

  • Sandy

    Obama doesn’t want to speak to Bibi because he knows he will be told that money can’t buy the Pals, what they want is to control Western societies and they will do whatever it takes to make that a reality including blowing themselves up in the process.

  • Sandy

    At the next Press Conference a reporter should ask Obama why he waited so long before admitting this was a terrorist attack on our Embassy and why his answer to this attack is to rush more money to people who obviously hate us. Do we still have reporters?

This money we have to borrow since his admin has already bled the Treasury dry and yet we are CUTTING our military spending among other things. What was that definition of being a traitor to your nation?…let’s see, will have to look it up and get back to you…
