U.S. Spent $1,010,354,195 on
Syrian Humanitarian Aid 2012-2013

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/9/2013 3:20:45 AM

U.S. taxpayers have spent at least $1,010,354,195 on Syrian humanitarian aid for fiscal years 2012 and 2013, according to official numbers from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). USAID, which was created by President John F. Kennedy, is the federal government´s primary agency in charge of distributing civilian foreign aid. (Snip) "To help the many Syrians in need this Eid al-Fitr, the United States is providing an additional $195 million in food aid and other humanitarian aid, bringing our humanitarian contribution to the Syrian people to over $1 billion since the crisis began,"

Comments:
Could someone ask 0bama, having spent $1B mostly for Assad side of the revolution, what exactly does "other humanitarian aid" mean? I take this to be the bulk of money spent on weapons. If not, get a CPA to see financials. In case any liberals watching, this is a President John F. Kennedy hold-over to give our tax dollars annually to anyone who will take it. A curious person would want to know now, who gets how much, when and for how long? Then, how does Congress stop this insanity, like giving Egypt $1.5B annually.

Wonder how much of the "Humanitarian Aid" dollars went to buy sarin gas.

#1, none. The sarin gas was left over from Saddam´s stockpile. (or possibly Kaddafi´s stockpile)

It´s nice that we´re 17 trillion dollars in debt, yet have the money to send over a billion
dollars to Syria. We´re in debt oblivion!

Americans are taxed to death as it is and we borrow (or print more), so Obama can spend it on whatever he wishes, including lavish vacations. America´s demise is near.

It´s beyond time to get rid of Kennedy´s USAID. That over $1B could have been used in our own country.

Duty to his country called U.S. Army Specialist Ricky Glenn Henderson to Afghanistan. Now duty to his family is calling him back to Texas, where he hopes to donate a majority of his liver to his dying Vietnam Vet grandfather. Henderson flew back from Afghanistan last week determined to give the gift of life to his very sick 62-year-old- grandfather, Rickey Homer. "The loss and the regret of me not doing anything would have outweighed this. I´m the firstborn grandson; I carry my grandfather´s name," Henderson told KLTV, the ABC affiliate in East Texas. Henderson arranged with his commanding officer to be flown back from Afghanistan to Baylor University Medical Center

Weiner Meets His Muse

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/30/2014 1:17:47 PM     Post Reply
His promising career in politics having come to an inglorious – and no doubt temporary – end, Anthony Weiner has turned to punditry. In his first column for Business Insider, his subject is the controversy over the Tesla automobile and the campaign by its maker to sell directly to the consumer rather than through dealers as required by myriad state laws. This passage is a fair example of his prose style: Coverage of this fight in the tech press seems to have toed the Tesla line that these regulations are a roadblock to innovation designed to protect entrenched interests and reward the car dealers’ lobby for the cash they’ve thrown around over the years.

A leading healthcare expert poured cold water on the administration’s recent Obamacare enthusiasm, saying that three quarters of those signed up will face higher premiums than under their previous insurance. “Out of people that have signed up about three quarters will find premiums higher than previously with other insurance,” Dr. Toby Cosgrove, CEO of the Cleveland Clinic said on Fox News Sunday. “Hospitals are going to be paid less for what they do,” Cosgrove continued. “And we also know insurers are paying less too. We have to become more efficient in how we deliver care which is a big changefor health care providers.”

A Democratic state senator investigating the George Washington Bridge controversy insisted Sunday that she was willing to accept New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) side of the story, but also urged the governor to sit for an interview with her panel. Loretta Weinberg, the co-chairwoman of a committee investigating lane closures on the bridge, said that the panel had not gained access to all the documents it needs, nor had it been able to interview all the key figures in the controversy. “I’m willing to accept Gov. Christie’s side of the story all the way along,” Weinberg said on NBC's "Meet the Press." Weinberg also slammed

Kiev, Ukraine - The first crack of a sniper’s round in Kiev’s Independence Square came shortly after nine o’clock on the morning of February 20 and the last about seven hours later at around four o’clock in the afternoon drawing to a close the bloodiest day in what had been a months-long struggle to oust Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych. Many of the 53 people slain died from clean shots to the head or neck—telltale wounds inflicted by expert marksmen; while others were gunned down at closer quarters by less expert assassins armed with AK-47 assault rifles. Most of the photographs accompanying this article were taken on February 20,

Beijing - Chinese authorities have seized assets worth at least 90 billion yuan ($14.5 billion) from family members and associates of retired domestic security tsar Zhou Yongkang, who is at the center of China´s biggest corruption scandal in more than six decades, two sources said. More than 300 of Zhou´s relatives, political allies, proteges and staff have also been taken into custody or questioned in the past four months, the sources, who have been briefed on the investigation, told Reuters. The sheer size of the asset seizures and the scale of the investigations into the people around Zhou - unreported until now - make the corruption probe

Malaysia Airlines MH370: stricter

After a stoush with Interpol over its screening of airline passengers, Malaysia will introduce stricter security checks in the wake of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disaster. But they will not come into force until June. It comes as authorities said the FBI had so far found "nothing sinister" after examining the flight simulator that the captain of the missing Malaysia Airlines passenger jet kept in his home. (Snip) Spy agencies MI6 as well as the CIA are also helping the Malaysian authorities, which has addded to speculation the aircraft was hijacked by terrorists. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - Interpol has rejected comments from a Malaysian minister that it takes too much time and is too difficult to check the international police agency´s database to confirm if a passport has been stolen. The issue arose because two passengers used stolen passports to board Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, (Snip) "Malaysia´s decision not to consult Interpol´s Stolen and Lost Travel Documents (SLTD) database before allowing travelers to enter the country or board planes cannot be defended by falsely blaming technology or Interpol," said the agency, based in Lyon, France.

Paris - The French capital is poised to elect its first female mayor this weekend. This historic event was to have taken place after last Sunday’s municipal elections, which Socialist front-runner and deputy mayor Anne Hidalgo was expected to win. But she was upset by another top-tier candidate, who also happens to be a woman, Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, a center-right contender from a prominent political family. Since neither received more than 50 percent of the vote, they will face off on Sunday. The new madame le maire will take over one of the world’s most fabled cities, which, like most other major cities,

NY charter school dispute exposes
fault lines for Dems prior to 2016
Fox News, by Joseph Weber    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/29/2014 6:29:16 PM     Post Reply
The future of the Democrat Party is being charted in New York as its governor and the city´s mayor wage a battle over charter schools that touches on race, unions, Wall Street money and other issues that stand to redefine the party. The divide has largely centered on Gov. Andrew Cuomo´s objection to newly elected New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio´s plan to limit the growth of charter schools. But underneath the public dispute lies larger questions about the party´s long-standing support from teachers unions and the uneasy alliance that politicians -- particularly those eyeing national office -- have with Wall Street.

Washington - A new study gives a big boost to fixing a bad aortic valve, the heart´s main gate, without open-heart surgery. Survival rates were better one year later for people who had a new valve placed through a tube into an artery instead. (Snip) Several hundred thousand Americans have a bad aortic valve, which can stiffen and narrow with age, keeping blood from passing through as it should. Until a few years ago, the only solution was a major operation to open the chest, cut out the bad valve and sew in a new one. That changed in 2011, when Edwards Lifesciences Inc. won federal approval for an expandable valve that could fit in a catheter into

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.
