Now this is very interesting. To know how our obama regime funding all those islamic asshole countries that hate us affects our pocketbooks. Do read the entire article.
The average median income for a family of four in the United States is $51,000.00. Such a family will pay $2,900.00 in federal income taxes, that much personal property confiscated by the iron fist of government power and spent as its officials choose. Based on this example, let’s look and see how many American families’ taxes it takes for the Obama Administration to give annual aid to Islamic countries that hate us.
Annual aid: $1.56 billion
The new president of Egypt is the leader of a terrorist organization. His regime has stood by while Christians in Egypt have been murdered and churches burned. He did nothing when our embassy in Cairo was attacked. He has not even issued an apology for the attack.
Egypt votes against the United States in the United Nations 79% of the time.
It takes 573,000 U.S. families to pay for the “aid” to this country.
Annual aid: $6.7 billion
This country hid Bin Laden, imprisoned the doctor for 30 years who helped the U.S. find Bin Laden, and continues to harbor Al Qaeda terrorists within its borders.
Pakistan votes against the United States in the United Nations 75% of the time.
It takes 2,300,000 U.S. families to pay for the “aid” to this country.
Palestinian Authority (West Bank and Gaza Strip)
Annual aid: $600 million
The Palestinians danced in the streets when the World Trade Center collapsed on 9/11. Just lately, for the last three days they have been rioting in the streets, yelling: “Death to all Americans.”
It takes 206,000 U.S. families to pay for the “aid” to this country.

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer gave quite a scolding Friday to his fellow panelists on PBS’s Inside Washington.
During a discussion about the murder of our ambassador in Libya, Krauthammer said, “I just want to respond to my liberal pals over here. I can’t believe you guys are covering for the administration on the Susan Rice thing when they themselves said five days later it was obviously a terror attack” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Wow…did not realize this about using our currency to pay for stuff. This goes beyond the toll road issue. Do read it all.
The Eleventh Circuit US Court of Appeals has ruled that private contractors operating toll roads on behalf of the state have the power to detain and store records on motorists who pay by cash at toll booths – another example of how using cash is increasingly being treated as a suspicious activity.
I bet that this is just the tip of the iceberg! If Sudan gets away with this, then expect to see every single nation owing money to other nations to get the same treatment!
Sudan told the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday that its debts must be canceled and its economy supported as it struggles to recover from losing three-quarters of its critical oil revenue to South Sudan when it seceded a year ago.

Isn’t that a crime? More hypocrisy from the dictators running the U.S…into the ground. via Clinton offers $45 million to Syrian rebels, who want more support | McClatchy.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday announced $45 million in additional aid for Syrian opposition activists, the latest U.S. push for influence in a civil war that’s raged beyond the international community’s control.
Clinton announced the new aid package before meeting with visiting Syrian dissidents on the margins of this week’s U.N. General Assembly, where world leaders sounded bleaker than ever about the prospects for a negotiated political resolution to the 18-month uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
U.S. humanitarian aid for Syria now will total more than $132 million this year, though Syrian rebels are more interested in weapons and military training than in the American promises of more “nonlethal assistance.” Of the $45 million pledged Friday, $30 million is earmarked for humanitarian assistance and $15 million for radios, training and other technical support for opposition activists.
As we noted in a previous post:
U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan [now a justice on the SCoTUS] urged the court to uphold the broad sweep of the terrorism law and to permit prosecutions of anyone who gives any support to a terrorist group. She discounted the “supposed First Amendment claims” raised by human-rights advocates.
“Hezbollah builds bombs. Hezbollah also builds homes. What Congress decided was when you help Hezbollah build homes, you are also helping Hezbollah build bombs. That’s the entire theory behind the statute.”
Justice Antonin Scalia agreed with Kagan and said he saw no constitutional problems with the antiterrorism law. “If you provide any aid” to them, it “furthers their terrorist activity,” he said.
And Clinton herself has admitted that groups on the U.S. terror list are aiding and supporting the so-called Syrian rebels. Watch the video. (if anyone can clip it to youtube that would be great)
“We have a very dangerous set of actors in the region, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, and those who are on our terrorist list, to be sure, supporting – claiming to support the opposition.”
Administration officials say that outsourcing the supply of money and arms to the rebels maintains a crucial distinction that keeps American military fingerprints off a conflict that has already turned into a bloody civil war. “It’s not for us to determine what the donations are used for,” said one official, who requested anonymity to discuss administration thinking, describing a plausible deniability that might not be plausible to all. “It could be for medical supplies.”
Is sending money to aid terrorist groups a crime or not?
How about spending taxpayer funds by the billions on undeclared wars that taxpayers would never approve of?
All of Congress are guilty of misusing taxpayer funds and abandoning their oath to uphold the Constitution.
Wake up America, it’s slipping away.
Even the European Union is delaying key decisions until after November.
On May 7th, it was revealed that the Obama administration spent $8.35 billion on a “demonstration project” designed to postpone the vast majority of Obamacare’s Medicare Advantage cuts until after the election. On July 31st, it was revealed that the Labor Department warned defense contractors against notifying workers of impending layoffs before the election as well, despite the fact that it would require violating the law to do so. On September 21, it was revealed that a report on the Greek bailout will also be postponed until after the U.S. election. On September 13th, Fed Chief Ben Bernanke announced that he will be pursuing a third round of Quantitative Easing (QE3), once again under the auspices of “stimulating” the economy. The over-arching theme here is clear: anything that constitutes an “inconvenient reality” for this president, especially with respect to economics, will be delayed until after the election.
Thus, the president can continue to campaign on the “heartless” cuts a Romney administration will administer to healthcare in general, and seniors’ healthcare in particular, even as those same seniors remain oblivious to the reality that $7.4 billion will be cut from the Medicare Advantage program in 2013. As a result, enrollees will lose an average of $515 in benefits. Americans remain equally oblivious to the reality that family health insurance premiums have gone up by an average $2,730, despite a 2008 promise Obama made to lower premiums by $2500 by the end of his first term.
With respect to layoffs of employees who work in the defense industry, the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act is quite clear: employers are required to give employees 60 days notice before mass layoffs take place. As a result of the failure of the congressional super-committee to reach a budget deal during the debt ceiling negotiations last August, automatic cuts in defense spending, aka sequestration, are scheduled to kick in on January 2nd. If the WARN Act were enforced, thousands of defense employees would receive their layoff notices on November 3rd — three days before the election.
Enter the Labor Department, which released new “guidelines” on July 30th, in which the rationale for delaying the notices is the idea that “[A]lthough it is currently known that sequestration may occur, it is also known that efforts are being made to avoid sequestration. Thus even the occurrence of sequestration is not necessary foreseeable.” As a result it “would be inappropriate” to notify the affected workers. That would be the same Department of Labor which previously concluded it had “no administrative or enforcement responsibility under [the WARN Act]” and “cannot provide specific advice or guidance with respect to individual situations.” Apparently when there’s an election at stake, anything is possible, even if the rule of law is tossed aside in the process.
With respect to Greece and the rest of the European Union, keeping the welfare state scheme from imploding is a task becoming more daunting with each passing day. The Daily Mail reveals that Greece’s debt is double what that nation had previously claimed, standing at a staggering $25 billion. Greece denied the report, and the resulting disagreement had the desired effect: despite the European Commission wanting a final decision on a Greek bailout to take place at the next EU summit on October 18th and 19th, Germany insists that reliable figures needed to determine the next move won’t be available “until November.” Undoubtedly that means November 7th at the earliest.
Yet Greece is not the only EU nation that could upset the economic apple cart. Spain is on the verge of needing a bailout of its own, even as Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy continues to insist that austerity programs contained in that country’s 2013 budget will be sufficient to weather the storm. What is being downplayed is the inconvenient reality that Spain’s 17 individual regions are not only awash in debt of their own, but that Catalonia, the nation’s richest region, wants to secede. Ironically, their reason for doing so mirrors the reason for current crisis: the wealthier EU nations (read: Germany) are reaching the point of exhaustion with respect to bailing out their profligate neighbors, despite the reality that the European Union will disintegrate without such bailouts.
That such bailouts are mathematically unsustainable in the long run? As long as the chaos, including violent strikes and riots taking place in both Greece and Spain can be contained until after November 6th, all is well. Unfortunately for Obama, an unnamed EU official revealed the subterfuge. “The Obama administration doesn’t want anything on a macroeconomic scale that is going to rock the global economy before November 6,” he said. “As far as European leaders are concerned, they don’t want Romney, so they’re probably willing to do anything to help Obama’s chances.” So it is with respect to the most pernicious effort to delay economic reality, namely the third round of Quantitative Easing (QE3) engineered by Fed Chief Ben Bernanke. If the legions of Americans with little grasp of economic fundamentals (courtesy of the educational decline of our public schools) had even the faintest idea of what is really occurring here, Barack Obama wouldn’t stand a chance of being re-elected.
This leader of Israel said things that our president should be saying, should of said. But never will, as obama and his regime kiss islamic ass every chance they get.
(CNSNews.com) – Speaking to the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that “medieval forces of radical Islam … want to extinguish freedom.”
“We want to see the three great religions that sprang forth from our region – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – coexist in peace and in mutual respect. Yet, the medieval forces of radical Islam, whom you just saw storming the American embassies throughout the Middle East. Well, they oppose this,” he said.
“They seek supremacy over all Muslims. They are bent on world conquest. They want to destroy Israel, Europe, America. They want to extinguish freedom. They want to end the modern world,” he added.
Netanyahu described the branches of “militant Islam,” which he said includes the rulers of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and al Qaeda.
“Despite their differences,” he said, “they’re all rooted in the same bitter soil of intolerance.”
“That intolerance is directed first to their fellow Muslims, then to Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, secular people – anyone who doesn’t submit to their unforgiving creed. They want to drag humanity back to an age of unquestioning dogma, unrelenting conflict,” Netanyahu said.
“They want to drag humanity back to an age of unquestioning dogma, unrelenting conflict. I’m sure of one thing: ultimately, they will fail. Ultimately, light will penetrate the darkness,” he added.
It has become ever more obvious that there is a deep psychological affinity between liberals and Islamofascists. On the face of it, this affinity seems absurd: liberals champion gay rights and a so-called emancipation of women, while Islamofascists seem never quite happy unless they are stoning homosexuals or degrading women. But the affinity is not absurd, and understanding it means understanding the colossal errors of judgment made recently by the U.S. president and secretary of state.
Governor Romney backed ungracefully into the truth when he complained about the 47 percent and all those embarrassing apologies: Democrats, and especially the president, have systematically cultivated an entitlement mentality and sought to expand it to the tipping point that ensures endless political dominance. Muslims feel entitled, too, and that is why appeasement does not work.
It’s not just that Muslims prefer strong horses to weak ones, as Osama bin Laden put it. They feel entitled to the double standards that so irk us, and they do not feel the least gratitude when we apologize for insults to Mohammed or send them money to calm them down. On the contrary, our apologies and our money merely feed their sense of entitlement.
To apologize or otherwise show respect to Islamists is like giving a welfare recipient more money. The money makes the recipient feel more entitled, not less. The more money we give, the less gratitude we receive. True charity should not look for gratitude anyway.
It is rare for anyone to show less understanding of other people than the president and secretary of state showed on that ad on Pakistan television. Our delusional, practically imbecilic leaders said that the United States government did not have anything to do with the notorious video and seemed to think that saying so would somehow mollify the enraged masses. They say this over and over again, and the masses just become more and more enraged.
Apparently, our powerful imbeciles have not heard a word the Islamofascists are saying. They are not saying that the United States government made the video; they would simply prefer that the United States government should cut the filmmakers into little pieces and feed them to unclean beasts. So the imbeciles say something they think will please the Islamofascists, but the Islamofascists hear what they are saying as a refusal of their demands, not as sympathy for their injuries. The Islamofascists take what the imbeciles are saying as an insult: we pretend to be sympathetic, but we don’t do what they want.
The Islamofascists hear the imbeciles say that the video is vile and disgusting, and the Islamofascists take that as confirmation that the imbeciles are shirking their duty to punish the filmmakers. The apology is a self-indictment in the eyes of the Islamofascists. So the president goes on and on apologizing — that is, self-indicting — and the hatred of the Muslim world goes on and on in step.
The same thing has bedeviled American policy on the Palestinians for years. We say that we want to be an “honest broker” between Palestinians and Israelis, but until we elect a monster to the presidency, Palestinians will see Americans as people who love Jews and merely pretend to care about Palestinians. They hate us more for pretending that we like them than they would if we just said that we can never respect people who hate Jews so much that they will blow themselves up if it means killing a Jew. Same for people who cheer when passenger jets fly into our skyscrapers.
No serious person could believe that Hillary Clinton is truly offended by the Innocence of Muslims video. Obama may be a different story, but surely the liberal establishment is not offended when Mohammed is called a vicious man and a pedophile. They know quite well that he was both. They are upset because they see insanely enraged Muslims and identify with their insane rage.
What do CNN, The Wall Street Journal, Bibi Netanyahu, a Lebanese website, and Mitt Romney all have in common?
They told some truths inconvenient for President Barack Obama. They are now enemies of hope, enemies of change. They are a big pain in the rear for the man who “leads from the rear” by leading with his rear.
President Obama thinks critics and foes need not only to be defeated, but to be crushed and shamed in the public square.
Obama and his team said CNN’s reports on terror in Libya were “disgusting” and “indefensible,” that Mitt Romney’s comments on Obama’s policy show that he likes to “shoot first and aim later,” unlike straight-shooting, straight-talking Sheriff Obama.
Actually, CNN, Romney, The Wall Street Journal, Netanyahu, etc. all found or revealed facts showing that the Emperor of Hope and Change is naked — not a wise anti-terror sheriff who got Osama bin Laden, but an inept and negligent custodian of U.S. national security who prefers to play golf or campaign in Vegas.
CNN and the Journal showed that President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied when they said many times that the attacks on U.S. diplomats were protests over some film, when they said they had not been warned about terror attacks, when they said they had not apologized.
Obama, Clinton, and White House spokesman James Carney should indeed apologize — to the American people who employ them. They also should apologize to CNN, the Wall Street Journal, and even Mitt Romney. The Obama team lied repeatedly and shamelessly about the true nature of the terror attacks.
They then tried to spin the story into a yarn about CNN or Mitt Romney violating the privacy of the dead Americans, especially Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Yes, there was a violation, and it appears that not only Ambassador Stevens’s privacy was violated — but not by CNN, by Romney, or by the Wall Street Journal.
The real story may be more like — but far worse than — Iran’s kidnapping of U.S. diplomats in 1979. The Obama-driven narrative about how Libyans heroically rescued an ambassador suffering from smoke inhalation will not fly.
A Lebanese website and other media showed film and crowd comments that suggest that Ambassador Stevens was physically abused, perhaps sexually abused, in order to humiliate America. (The same thing happened to Gaddafi earlier in Libya, when he was marched through the streets before being killed.)
Media reports showed that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya was well-planned. The U.S. was warned, there and in Egypt, about upcoming violence. Ambassador Stevens himself warned Obama and Clinton that al-Qaeda had targeted him. U.S. security personnel worried about hostile surveillance on the U.S. consulate in Libya.
Obama and Clinton insulted Romney for criticizing Obama’s apology for a film that offended Muslims. But the film was an excuse, not a cause. These were pre-planned assaults on Americans on 9-11. The problem is not Romney, but the negligence of Team Obama, whose apology validated the phony narrative used by terrorists.
Obama and Co. have also vilified Israel and demeaned Prime Minister Netanyahu for showing how slowly Obama moved on Iran’s nuclear bomb program. Netanyahu is not the problem, unless the problem is Obama’s reputation rather than Iran’s bombs.
All of these reports on Mid-East developments are intolerable offenses to the Obama administration, which likes to manage the public discourse more than any other U.S. government since Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew.
Like Nixon, Obama plays hardball. He quotes the line from the movie The Untouchables about gangsters in Chicago: “If he brings a knife, you bring a gun.”
The Boys from Chicago are now acting like medieval monarchs, who executed messengers who brought them bad news.
Here is the obama doctrine in graphic form….
