Report: Obama Knowingly Funded al-Qaeda Affiliate with Taxpayer Cash

Published

on

According to The National Reviewthe Obama administration paid large sums of taxpayer cash to a known affiliate of the terrorist group al-Qaeda.

The Middle East Forum has discovered that the Obama administration approved a grant of $200,000 of taxpayer money to an al-Qaeda affiliate in Sudan — a decade after the U.S. Treasury designated it as a terrorist-financing organization,” according to the report. “More stunningly, government officials specifically authorized the release of at least $115,000 of this grant even after learning that it was a designated terror organization.”

In October 2004 the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) designated the Khartoum, Sudan-based Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA) to be a terrorist organization. The group was a known fundraiser for Osama bin Laden’s terror group Maktab al-Khidamat, which preceded al-Qaeda.

“Despite this well-documented history, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in July 2014 awarded $723,405 to World Vision Inc., an international evangelical charity, to ‘improve water, sanitation and hygiene and to increase food security in Sudan’s Blue Nile state,’ according to the report. “Of these funds, $200,000 was to be directed to a sub-grantee: ISRA.”

USAID was alerted by World Vision in November 2014 of ISRA’s terrorist designation, and subsequently OFAC confirmed to the humanitarian group that ISRA was indeed on the list of terrorist organizations.

World Vision, apparently impressed with ISRA’s prowess, was unhappy that they could not help the radical group.

“Despite OFAC’s ruling, in February, World Vision wrote to OFAC and Obama-administration official Jeremy Konyndyk (who then served as director of USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance) to apply to OFAC for a new license from USAID to pay ISRA ‘monies owed for work performed,’ says the report.

Shockingly, after “close collaboration and consultations with the Department of State,” the license was approved on May 7, 2015.

“OFAC issued a license to a World Vision affiliate, World Vision International, authorizing ‘a one-time transfer of approximately $125,000 to ISRA,’ of which ‘$115,000 was for services performed under the sub-award with USAID’ and $10,000 was ‘for an unrelated funding arrangement between Irish Aid and World Vision,’ the report said.

So the Obama State Department purposefully funded a terrorist organization.

Admittedly, I am no Constitutional scholar. As a former law student I can unequivocally assure you that neither are people who studied Constitutional law. But per the Article III of the Constitution, treason “consist[s] only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”

It seems like handing $200,000 to terrorists fits that definition.

President Trump is ‘Terminating’ Relationship with Disgraced W.H.O., Punishing China for Hong Kong Takeover

Trump is striking back against the globalists.

Published

President Donald Trump announced today that he will be “terminating” the relationship between the disgraced World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. as well as cutting off special trade advantages given to Hong Kong after China seized control of the formerly semi-autonomous city.

“We have detailed the reforms that it must make and engaged with them directly, but they have refused to act,” the president said from the White House. “Because they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms, we will be today terminating the relationship.”

Trump claims that he will be “redirecting” the funds that previously went to the WHO toward “other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.” He also said China “ignored” their obligations to the WHO when they spread disinformation to them about the nature of the coronavirus.

The WHO taking China at their word resulted in this embarrassing tweet that serves as an eternal reminder of the extreme incompetence of the globalist body:

Trump is also putting the squeeze on Hong Kong following China’s announcement that they will be taking additional power over the city that has rebelled against the red menace throughout the past year.

“I am directing my administration to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give Hong Kong different and special treatment,” Trump said at the same press conference.

“My announcement today will affect the full range of agreements that we have with Hong Kong, from our extradition treaty, to our export controls and technologies,” Trump added. “We will take action to revoke Hong Kong’s preferential treatment as a separate customs and travel territory from the rest of China.”

“No reasonable person can assert today that Hong Kong maintains a high degree of autonomy from China, given facts on the ground,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement after delivering a report to Congress indicating that Hong Kong has been usurped by China.

The president also said he will instruct his “presidential working group on financial markets to study the different practices of Chinese companies listed on the U.S. financial markets, with a goal of protecting American investors.”

“Investment firms should not be subjecting their clients to the hidden and undue risks associated with financing Chinese companies that do not play by the same rules,” Trump said, adding that “Americans are entitled to fairness and transparency.”

President Trump is getting tough on China and the WHO now that the coronavirus pandemic has subsided a bit. He has not let the crisis distract him from his agenda of ending globalism and putting America first.
