Obama’s Billion-Dollar Giveaway to the Muslim Brotherhood

In the past few weeks, Americans have been subjected to a barrage of doomsday predictions regarding the disaster that would befall us should the sequester come to pass. Many were rightly incensed, then, that last Thursday, only one day before the “devastating” sequester cuts were scheduled to kick in, newly appointed Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the Obama administration will be giving $60 million to a group of Syrian rebels fighting Bashsar Assad. This hypocrisy was quickly followed up with an announcement on Sunday by Kerry that the administration will be giving Egypt’s increasingly anti-democratic Muslim Brotherhood government $250 million in return for promises of economic reform — which will rise to $1 billion if that reform is deemed successful.

Kerry made the first announcement, on Syrian rebel aid, while attending an international conference on Syria in Rome. After asserting that Syrian President Bahsar Assad is “out of time and must be out of power,” Kerry revealed that the United States will be sending food rations known as M.R.E.s, as well as medicine to the rebels, via their central military headquarters. American advisors will supervise the distribution. Other countries will send additional aid, and Kerry is convinced the “totality” of that effort will impress Assad.

The rationale behind the funding is that something must be done to counter the extremist rebel factions who have better-organized networks for providing political and humanitarian services to Syrians resisting the Assad regime.

The aid will be given to the Syrian Opposition Coalition, the ostensible counter-weight to the Islamist al-Nusra Front, deemed a terrorist organization by the United States. “We need to help them to be able to deliver basic services and to protect the legitimate institutions of the state,” said Kerry. “You have a vulnerable population today that needs to be able to resist the pleas to engage in extremism.”

Despite Kerry’s announcement, such resistance isn’t costing American taxpayers a total of $60 million. That money is earmarked for essential services, such as sanitation and education, in areas currently controlled by rebels. Another $50 million dollars has already been spent providing assistance, such as communications equipment, to activists and local councils. Both amounts are in addition to the $385 million this administration has provided in humanitarian aid to the war-weary Syrian population.

Despite their newfound largesse, some of the rebels were disappointed by the outcome of their meeting with Kerry. “It is obvious that the real support is absent,” said Walid al-Bunni, a spokesman for the anti-Assad coalition. Al-Bunni insists weapons are priority number one. “What we want is to stop the Scuds launched on Aleppo, to stop the warplanes that are bombing our towns and villages,” he said.

At this point, that isn’t going to happen. Britain is supplying the rebels with militarily useful items, such as vehicles, bulletproof vests, and night vision goggles, but neither the U.S. nor the EU has any current intention of arming the rebels, for fear such weapons may end up in the wrong hands. The New York Times reports that the CIA is training Syrian rebels in Jordan, according to an official who wishes to remain anonymous. Yet neither weapons nor ammunition have been given to them either.

Former military intelligence officer and police detective Mike Snopes puts the timing and scope of the $60 million giveaway in proper perspective. “This is an amazing example of Obama’s priorities,” he contended. “He spouts gloom and doom for the American people many of whom suffer daily due to an awful economic picture, but he spouts hope to Syrian rebels, many of them members of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups.”

Unfortunately, Kerry was only getting warmed up. He more than quadrupled down on Sunday in Egypt. The $250 million given to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was based on Morsi’s promise to enact economic reforms necessary to procure a $4.8 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). That loan had been agreed to in principle last November, but violent street protests in December drove Cairo to suspend the request, according to Reuters. Yet according to the Washington Post, loan negotiations were set back by Egypt’s refusal to raise taxes last year. Complicating the issue even further was a downgrade of Egypt’s debt rating by Fitch, who contends the IMF loan is unlikely to happen until Egypt holds its next round of parliamentary elections beginning in April, and running in four stages through June.

Kerry is obviously trying to jumpstart the process. “The United States can and wants to do more,” Kerry said in a statement. “Reaching an agreement with the IMF will require further effort on the part of the Egyptian government and broad support for reform by all Egyptians. When Egypt takes the difficult steps to strengthen its economy and build political unity and justice, we will work with our Congress at home on additional support.”

The initial $250 million funding will be divided into two parts. First, $190 million is aimed at alleviating what Kerry characterized as Egypt’s “extreme needs.” It comes from a $450 million package of aid that had been frozen by Congress due to Egypt’s instability and U.S. budget concerns. Apparently not enough concern: despite the objections of congressional Republicans disenchanted with Morsi’s policies and past statements on Jews, the outlay was approved.

Another $60 million, for the creation of a fund aimed at “direct support to key engines of democratic change in Egypt, including Egypt’s entrepreneurs and its young people” brought the total outlay to a quarter of a billion dollars.

Again in the context of the relentless doom-and-gloom campaign surrounding sequestration, such assistance is dubious enough. Yet Americans must also remember that while half the sequestration cuts are being endured by the military, the U.S. is still sending 200 state-of-the-art Abrams tanks and 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt as well. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) attempted to block the deal, originally made in 2009 with then-president Hosni Mubarak, but his amendment was defeated 79-19 in the Senate. Only Republicans voted against the measure.

An Abrams tank costs $4.3 million. An F-16 fighter jet is $45 million. Thus, another $1.760 billion of taxpayer funding has been used to further enhance the Muslim Brotherhood’s military capability. Yet when the amendment was defeated, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) contended the alternative was far worse, including “a loss of thousands of American jobs,” and “more than two billion dollars in contract-termination penalties for U.S. taxpayers.” In other words, the arming of a nation dominated by Islamists with interests completely inimical to the United States is the “lesser of two evils.”

John Kerry’s giveaway is even worse because it has occurred despite the fact that Egypt has denied U.S. interrogators access to Abu Ahmed (also known as Mohammed Jamal), the only publicly known suspect tied to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. While not suspected of taking part in the attack, Ahmed allegedly established training camps in Eastern Libya for those who did. This is on top of fact that the Muslim Brotherhood, at the first opportunity, moved to crush the Egyptian democracy movement in its cradle by granting the president uncheck authority, and has faced extreme opposition from genuine voices for freedom.  The Morsi government has also adopted a Sharia-based constitution, continues to harass its Coptic Christian minority, has paid thugs to sexually assault women protesting in Cairo’s Tahrir Square and has reportedly begun to assemble a “morality police” force.

Promising upwards of a billion dollars to such a regime is bad enough in its own context. That the Obama administration is seemingly oblivious to the timing of this announcement, as well as one regarding the Syrian giveaway, borders on surreal. One is left to wonder how the laundry list of calamities we were assured would befall us — including cuts to education, small businesses, food safety, research and innovation, law enforcement, workplace safety, etc., etc., all of which would “threaten thousands of jobs and the economic security of the middle class” — fits in with our subsidizing the ludicrous fiction that so-called Arab Spring has become.

The most obvious answer is that this administration remains confident that few Americans will make the connection. Or, in the event that they do, the same media that invariably rises to defend this administration will do its best to assure the malcontents that such expenditures are “minuscule” in the context of  $3.6 trillion dollar annual budget. That would be the same media that took the exact opposite position regarding the 2.4 percent cut in spending engendered by the sequester.

Perhaps someone in the media could ask President Obama to explain his administration’s priorities, and why, so soon after warning us that doomsday was at hand, the interests of Islamic totalitarians apparently come ahead of American ones.

    IF they had not given away a billion THAT would have been the surprise. The issue is not about America's fast approaching insolvency. In fact, once the domestic economy implodes the regime will be able to execute the real transformation.
    In the meanwhile, giving taxpayer funds to Egypt, now run by the Brotherhood Mafia, a terrorist org, is against the law, and no different than paying jizya to Al Qaeda, one of its offshoots!
    Now, the fix was in the nanosecond the Islamist-in-Chief came to power. He is part Sunni and hearts with the Brothers, thus he appointed those who are equally aligned – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/10/11/the-islamist-

People killed at embassy benghazi nothing done, western people killed in algeria-nothing done, western people killed in balloon in egypt-nothing done, then not long after they offer millions to Egypt and fighter jets, this after earlier offering saudi arabia jets for sale as well. Scary, what this guy has done to strengthen muslims ,who are the enemy of peace and civilization.

Even longer, even if a republican gets elected. In a sense it just isn't even newsworhty – other than reporting it happened.
    We will be sucking off islam until we retrieve the energy we have here, everyone is painfully aware of that. We, our country, our President have no moral backbone whatsoever So we capitulate to the barbaric and savage behaviors of the pushers of our addictive substance. Such a shame.

    Israel gets 40% of its energy from Egypt. As part of the Camp David Accord that the US brokered, Egypt promised to play nice with Israel. The US since then has paid Egypt approximately $1.3 Billion per year to keep them in line. Several months ago, the new Egyptian government blocked that energy transfer in sympathy with Palestine. The US (Obama) hustled in and wrote a check to calm things down. Personally, I think we should pull the plug on Israel and let them deal with their own problems, but most pro-Israel types would be very upset if we did. That's why we're paying those 'dirty rag-head heathen Muslims'. Before getting irate about Obama's actions, you have to ask yourself if 'you' care about Israel. I don't.

    • Abdul

      About the only way to make your argument palatable is to in the same breath say stop foreign aid to both Israel & Egypt.

        Thank you, good sir.

        I believe it starts with one, and I am doing my personal turn-around, from a life strongly influenced by a whacko, dysfunctional family and all the influence that can have on one's habits and basic conduct to what I call my Real Life now (naturally all this with the help of God and his people). I am so glad to be coming to my senses and feel now I am presentable and can make a real difference. We need to run a program of attraction more than promotion. Love is the very most powerful thing and can wield the most influence.

        As for the education dumb-down, it has been severe. I got a glance at the course studies my father, born around 1915, received in grammar school and high school. Far more advanced in sciences such as they were in those days, foreign languages and concepts, Latin, geography, history and much more — what was considered a classic education in those days. This was all taught in the upper grades in grammar school and then more added in high school. I am sure there are some cities where children are receiving valuable education for their day, but I am afraid there are far too many whose education won't even provide basic math and reading skills.

    “Jordanian government officials say there are growing signs that the kingdom’s powerful Muslim Brotherhood organization has plans to overthrow the regime.” any bets of where Obama will

    A: Send our troops and equipment to assist in this over throw just like all the others that Obama has Funded, Armed, And Supplies continued assistance.

    B: Sends all the Equipment like he did Syria as an “Arming the Rebels” sale pitches that once again the democratic controlled senate, and the always swaying RINO that plagues us so.

    C:The recent Saudi national deportation and the and the possibility connections to the Chechen Shamil Basayev (Chechen radical).” The Saudi’s finance it all as they promote the expansion of the Muslim Brotherhood, the “Arab Spring” as we as the USA.

    Watch they will be funded or recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood Chechen branch, connected to the Egyptian Branch associated with the Syrian resistances and we we going to arm them with man portable missiles both Anti-tank and anti-aircraft. as we have already arranged funded and are arming training and supplying the Egyptians with Tanks Aircraft and Even Submarines, Can we all say thank you Mister Obama for using our troops to assist, equip and fund them. And now I guess we back their newest efforts in the Middle East and help them overthrow the only other nation in the In the region that is even some what controlled civilized religious militants sorts of Islam, is now going up against Jordan with further support from Obama and the democratic socialist venue. we shall see the complete take over of the Middle East by the Brotherhood and President Obama using our resources, men and equipment to advance this agenda that is seemingly headed to our Shores. Watch for acceptance of Sharia laws as the UN steps in to continue to support revolutions changing the rules, as seen in What use to be European nations, the freedom is assisting the further Unhindered usurpation’s of peoples rights and property to make their One world government with the religious militants leading the Vote.

As they created bin ladden and supported extremists to defeat the sovietes now the monster they created turn back on u and same in syria they are supporting the wrong side .apparently there is a policy to divide the arab world by creating chaos in all the strong countries it is definetly not a coincidence that we see.

    In the past few weeks, Americans have been subjected to a barrage of doomsday predictions regarding the disaster that would befall us should the sequester come to pass. Many were rightly incensed, then, that last Thursday, only one day before the “devastating” sequester cuts were scheduled to kick in, newly appointed Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the Obama administration will be giving $60 million to a group of Syrian rebels fighting Bashsar Assad. This hypocrisy was quickly followed up with an announcement on Sunday by Kerry that the administration will be giving Egypt’s increasingly anti-democratic Muslim Brotherhood government $250 million in return for promises of economic reform — which will rise to $1 billion if that reform is deemed successful.

    Kerry made the first announcement, on Syrian rebel aid, while attending an international conference on Syria in Rome. After asserting that Syrian President Bahsar Assad is “out of time and must be out of power,” Kerry revealed that the United States will be sending food rations known as M.R.E.s, as well as medicine to the rebels, via their central military headquarters. American advisors will supervise the distribution. Other countries will send additional aid, and Kerry is convinced the “totality” of that effort will impress Assad.

    The rationale behind the funding is that something must be done to counter the extremist rebel factions who have better-organized networks for providing political and humanitarian services to Syrians resisting the Assad regime.

    The aid will be given to the Syrian Opposition Coalition, the ostensible counter-weight to the Islamist al-Nusra Front, deemed a terrorist organization by the United States. “We need to help them to be able to deliver basic services and to protect the legitimate institutions of the state,” said Kerry. “You have a vulnerable population today that needs to be able to resist the pleas to engage in extremism.”

    Despite Kerry’s announcement, such resistance isn’t costing American taxpayers a total of $60 million. That money is earmarked for essential services, such as sanitation and education, in areas currently controlled by rebels. Another $50 million dollars has already been spent providing assistance, such as communications equipment, to activists and local councils. Both amounts are in addition to the $385 million this administration has provided in humanitarian aid to the war-weary Syrian population.

    Despite their newfound largesse, some of the rebels were disappointed by the outcome of their meeting with Kerry. “It is obvious that the real support is absent,” said Walid al-Bunni, a spokesman for the anti-Assad coalition. Al-Bunni insists weapons are priority number one. “What we want is to stop the Scuds launched on Aleppo, to stop the warplanes that are bombing our towns and villages,” he said.

    At this point, that isn’t going to happen. Britain is supplying the rebels with militarily useful items, such as vehicles, bulletproof vests, and night vision goggles, but neither the U.S. nor the EU has any current intention of arming the rebels, for fear such weapons may end up in the wrong hands. The New York Times reports that the CIA is training Syrian rebels in Jordan, according to an official who wishes to remain anonymous. Yet neither weapons nor ammunition have been given to them either.

    Former military intelligence officer and police detective Mike Snopes puts the timing and scope of the $60 million giveaway in proper perspective. ”This is an amazing example of Obama’s priorities,” he contended. “He spouts gloom and doom for the American people many of whom suffer daily due to an awful economic picture, but he spouts hope to Syrian rebels, many of them members of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups.”

    Unfortunately, Kerry was only getting warmed up. He more than quadrupled down on Sunday in Egypt. The $250 million given to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was based on Morsi’s promise to enact economic reforms necessary to procure a $4.8 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). That loan had been agreed to in principle last November, but violent street protests in December drove Cairo to suspend the request, according to Reuters. Yet according to the Washington Post, loan negotiations were set back by Egypt’s refusal to raise taxes last year. Complicating the issue even further was a downgrade of Egypt’s debt rating by Fitch, who contends the IMF loan is unlikely to happen until Egypt holds its next round of parliamentary elections beginning in April, and running in four stages through June.

    Kerry is obviously trying to jumpstart the process. ”The United States can and wants to do more,” Kerry said in a statement. “Reaching an agreement with the IMF will require further effort on the part of the Egyptian government and broad support for reform by all Egyptians. When Egypt takes the difficult steps to strengthen its economy and build political unity and justice, we will work with our Congress at home on additional support.”

    The initial $250 million funding will be divided into two parts. First, $190 million is aimed at alleviating what Kerry characterized as Egypt’s “extreme needs.” It comes from a $450 million package of aid that had been frozen by Congress due to Egypt’s instability and U.S. budget concerns. Apparently not enough concern: despite the objections of congressional Republicans disenchanted with Morsi’s policies and past statements on Jews, the outlay was approved.

    Another $60 million, for the creation of a fund aimed at “direct support to key engines of democratic change in Egypt, including Egypt’s entrepreneurs and its young people” brought the total outlay to a quarter of a billion dollars.

    Again in the context of the relentless doom-and-gloom campaign surrounding sequestration, such assistance is dubious enough. Yet Americans must also remember that while half the sequestration cuts are being endured by the military, the U.S. is still sending 200 state-of-the-art Abrams tanks and 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt as well. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) attempted to block the deal, originally made in 2009 with then-president Hosni Mubarak, but his amendment was defeated 79-19 in the Senate. Only Republicans voted against the measure.

    An Abrams tank costs $4.3 million. An F-16 fighter jet is $45 million. Thus, another $1.760 billion of taxpayer funding has been used to further enhance the Muslim Brotherhood’s military capability. Yet when the amendment was defeated, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) contended the alternative was far worse, including “a loss of thousands of American jobs,” and “more than two billion dollars in contract-termination penalties for U.S. taxpayers.” In other words, the arming of a nation dominated by Islamists with interests completely inimical to the United States is the “lesser of two evils.”

    John Kerry’s giveaway is even worse because it has occurred despite the fact that Egypt has denied U.S. interrogators access to Abu Ahmed (also known as Mohammed Jamal), the only publicly known suspect tied to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. While not suspected of taking part in the attack, Ahmed allegedly established training camps in Eastern Libya for those who did. This is on top of fact that the Muslim Brotherhood, at the first opportunity, moved to crush the Egyptian democracy movement in its cradle by granting the president uncheck authority, and has faced extreme opposition from genuine voices for freedom. The Morsi government has also adopted a Sharia-based constitution, continues to harass its Coptic Christian minority, has paid thugs to sexually assault women protesting in Cairo’s Tahrir Square and has reportedly begun to assemble a “morality police” force.

    Promising upwards of a billion dollars to such a regime is bad enough in its own context. That the Obama administration is seemingly oblivious to the timing of this announcement, as well as one regarding the Syrian giveaway, borders on surreal. One is left to wonder how the laundry list of calamities we were assured would befall us — including cuts to education, small businesses, food safety, research and innovation, law enforcement, workplace safety, etc., etc., all of which would ”threaten thousands of jobs and the economic security of the middle class” — fits in with our subsidizing the ludicrous fiction that so-called Arab Spring has become.

    The most obvious answer is that this administration remains confident that few Americans will make the connection. Or, in the event that they do, the same media that invariably rises to defend this administration will do its best to assure the malcontents that such expenditures are “minuscule” in the context of $3.6 trillion dollar annual budget. That would be the same media that took the exact opposite position regarding the 2.4 percent cut in spending engendered by the sequester.

    Perhaps someone in the media could ask President Obama to explain his administration’s priorities, and why, so soon after warning us that doomsday was at hand, the interests of Islamic totalitarians apparently come ahead of American ones.

      the US buys peace in the Middle East bc the product of trying to bring peace at the end of a gun (wars) is only stirring the pot further.

      All the US can do is try to contain but Islam like N. Korea could care less about containment, so they play the game with the US while sucking the american people dry.

      It is time to downsize course they are so addicted to war that they don’t know where to begin.

    Great article. American’s need to realize that islam’s goal is to destroy America. http://christianpersecutioninamerica.com/2013/07/22/christian-answer-islam-america/
    Thank you for bringing this information to light.

      See how president Obama treats America?

      Islam is three parts: Legal, political, and religious observance. They’re all open about Islam’s goal: It is empirical — getting rid of America is the biggest priority to bring every human into submission to Allah, whether they want to or not. Submission to Allah obviously means submission to them because they represent “him”.

      It’s well-known that Obama has created a “special” relationship with Turkey’s President Erdogen, who said at the beginning of his term, “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…”. He’s not just whistlin’ Dixie when he says that.

      If even .1% are militant, imagine how many people could be “soldiers” out of 1.6 billion observers. There could be millions of “soldiers” out there … bigger than any standing military in the world.

        “Islam is three parts: Legal, political, and religious”
        America used to be like this: the Christian Faith was expressed in every area of life. If America is to survive, it will only be in this way.

      yes Parson we as god fearing Americans know but we can’t stop this administration and their totally backwards actions, they literally aren’t playing with a full deck, or Obama and numerous others in his administration are indeed terrorists themselves, I strongly believe Obama and a few are terrorists, how can we stop them when anything we say where called bigots racist something unheard of coming out of the mouth of any president, that’s why I know Obama is a Muslim brotherhood sympathizing terrorist and everything totally screwed up that he does just gets swept under the rug like he’s immune from being prosecuted for breaking the law, so what can we do besides what we are doing raising Cain, but its not doing any good the so called patriot GOP is so afraid to do anything because the liberals would raise a firestorm of calling names or anything they can do to paint us and GOP republicans as extreme racist for filing charges, or impeachment on the first so called black president, even though he’s using his skin color as a tool of hate name calling and bigotry even though he claims the Muslim nationality.
      I say just freaking arrest him already get it over with and undo everything he’s done before it gets any worse, I truly am sorry for our governments fecklessness and them now giving support one way or another to known terrorists organizations, I’m a proud American so I won’t say I’m ashamed to be American but I strongly condemn Obama and all that are involved in helping Obama by supporting him and known terrorists.
      I pray for Israel, the recovery of America in returning full support to Israel, to blast this administration out of the white house and prosecute them for their outright crimes against the US and the world. I want to also Pray for justice for Israel in taking down all parts of these murderous terrorists, Hamas, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Muslim brotherhood whatever name they use just to prevail over them God Bless Israel..

  • Vindicator

    Took less than 2 minutes to disprove this

    • prtyfdup

      Really? So where is the information you found in less than two minutes? He absolutely provided aircraft, weapons and money to the Muslim Brotherhood knowing Egypt considered the group terrorist. He is now going to send “aid” to the Syrian regime. This btw, is American tax payers money.
