Sequestration. What Sequestration?
Sequestration became the law of the land on Friday, March 1, 2013. Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama, on Saturday, March 2, blamed Republicans for $85 billion in automatic budget cuts in both domestic and defense programs over the next seven months. I guess newly appointed Secretary of State John Kerry failed to get the budget cuts memo. On March 3, despite the sequestration, Kerry gave $250 million to Egypt, ostensibly as immediate “economic assistance.” Kerry insisted Egypt would need to make some economic and political reforms before he releases the next batch of U.S. funding. The total amount could go as high as $1 billion if the reform is deemed successful. Is there any doubt that the reform will be deemed successful? Can anyone say, “Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure?” That, by the way, is in addition to the $450 million Obama gave to Egypt last year.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Kerry announced that the Obama administration will give $60 million to the Syrian rebels.
As John Hawkins wrote:
“If we have 250 million dollars to give to Egypt – TO EGYPT – how can Barack Obama be so duplicitous, so irresponsible, so despicable as to lay off teachers, release illegal aliens, and generally punish people as part of a ridiculous political stunt?”
Yes, that is the same John Kerry who served in Viet Nam, who is of “Ginghis Kahn” fame, who threw his Navy medals over a White House fence, and who “saved” Boston harbor in 2004, promising “No retreat, no surrender.”
And, yes, that is the same Egypt that elected Muslim Brotherhood member Mohammed Morsi, who called for all Jews to be destroyed, called Obama a liar, called Israelis “the descendants of apes and pigs,” called Jews “blood suckers,” is in support of the Iranian-backed Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, and said that “Israeli-Palestinian negotiations are ‘a waste of time and opportunities…’.” Egypt was a former ally, and, despite having the largest military in the Middle East, was given sixteen F-16s and 200 M-1 main battle tanks. As a condition for receiving the jets and tanks, Egypt has promised not to use the advanced weapons to attack Israel. Again, “Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure.”
Can Obama pick ‘em, or what?
But that’s just my opinion.
