In a last ditch effort to stick it to the American people Obama did another egregious act. We all knew that Barack Hussein Obama would do everything and anything to show his hatred for America as he left office. It has now been discovered that in his waning hours of president Obama did the unthinkable which will leave you sick to your stomach.
While Americans began their celebration of the inauguration of Donald J. Trump, President Obama defied Congress and sent $221 million to the Palestinian Authority. A State Department official and congressional aides formally informed Congress it would be sending this money on Friday morning.
Just mere hours before Trump officially took office aides said that written notification was sent to Congress of the fund transfer. However, that was not all Obama did. It was also discovered that this treasonous jerk released another $6 million in foreign affairs spending, including $4 million for climate change programs and $1.25 million for U.N. organizations, the congressional aides said.
According to the Daily Mail:
Congress had initially approved the Palestinian funding in budget years 2015 and 2016, but at least two GOP lawmakers – Ed Royce of California, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Kay Granger of Texas, who sits on the House Appropriations Committee – had placed holds on it over moves the Palestinian Authority had taken to seek membership in international organizations.
Congressional holds are generally respected by the executive branch but are not legally binding after funds have been allocated.
The Obama administration had for some time been pressing for the release of the money for the Palestinian Authority, which comes from the U.S. Agency for International Development and is to be used for humanitarian aid in the West Bank and Gaza, to support political and security reforms as well as help prepare for good governance and the rule of law in a future Palestinian state, according to the notification sent to Congress.
I am truly not surprised that Obama did this right before leaving office. He has continued to be against the very country that he was charged with protecting, but his actions tell a different story. The only solace that any of us can take is that with President Trump in charge those who want to harm us will no longer be funded.
