Keep in mind, these are our tax dollars, and all this money could have gone to our military veterans, and if it had to be spent outside of our vets there are other deserving areas for spending within the United States, i.e., infrastructure for example.
This has been nothing more than Obama’s end of a globalist agenda and redistributing the hard earned wealth of Americans…
FOX News EXCLUSIVE: In its last year in office, the Obama Administration showered at least some $9.2 billion on the United Nations and its sprawling array of organizations, according to a document recently posted on the State Department website.
The total is gleaned from a document that summarizes U.S. government spending for international organizations, and is about 20 per cent higher than the $7.7 billion figure given out by State for 2010, before the Obama Administration abruptly quit providing any overall tally for its U.N. support.
The overall U.S. bill for international organizations of every stripe is just under $10.5 billion, meaning that U.N. organizations absorb about 88 per cent of such U.S. government spending.
The new tally includes nearly $360 million for the controversial United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, or UNRWA, which is regularly accused of inculcating violent anti-Israel attitudes and even abetting terrorist attacks on Israel, which it strongly denies.
That is nearly a 50 per cent jump over the $238.3 million UNRWA got from the U.S. in 2010.
(Last week, the Trump Administration froze a last-minute, $221 million donation by the Obama Administration that was intended for the Palestinian Authority.)
The UNRWA numbers, along with all the rest of the U.N. donations, are likely to come under fierce scrutiny in the weeks ahead, both from the Trump Administration, which wants to take a tough look at aligning its U.N. spending with national interests, and from Congress, which is frustrated by U.N. bloat and inefficiency, and often maddened by its anti-Israel biases.
At the same time, U.N. appeals for funds, especially humanitarian money to deal with a swamp of international crises and conflicts, are still on the rise. On Jan. 31, for example, UNICEF announced a new, $3.4 billion appeal, including $1.4 billion slated for Syria and surrounding countries, that the agency says will target some 535 million children next year.
I still anticipate this SOB becoming the Secretary General of the U.N. in the not too distant future. And I believe it is one of the reasons he has remained inside Washington D.C. I think the plan was for Hillary to get into the White House and carry on the methods of turning over US sovereignty to the U.N. and paving the way for Barack Obama to possibly become the next UN Secretary General. Hence the massive amounts of US taxpayer dollars into the rotting world organization, and the attempts to hand over our nation’s and Americans’ rights to the treacherous governing body of selfish and fascist communist and Muslim nations. Wait for it…
