Last week, the Obama administration transferred $500 million in U.S. funds to the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund. Other countries will welcome the administration’s handover of American tax dollars to subsidize their own economies. The American people will reject it as another executive power grab that ignores their judgment and misuses their hard-earned money.
FUNDING AN UNAUTHORIZED PROGRAM
On March 8, Deputy Secretary of State Heather Higginbottom testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that Congress never authorized the Green Climate Fund.

Between his stays in Havana and Buenos Aires, Grabien Crowdsource News counted at least 15 times Obama talked down his employer, The United States of America. That was when he wasn’t dancing the tango and doing the wave with the commie dictator of Cuba while Brussels burned.
Specifically, he said …
- America must have the “courage to acknowledge” its role in Argentina’s human-rights abuses
- America can’t be slow talking about human-rights violations, as we’ve done in Argentina
- The Constitution’s separation of powers makes it hard for America to adapt to the changing times
- America must do more to promote equality
- America needs to reduce discrimination
- America suffers from “political polarization”
- America was built by slaves
- America has too much money in politics
- America has a problem with racially-biased criminal justice system, a racially-biased society, and a legacy of slavery & segregation
- Many American states would have forbidden his biracial parents to marry — had they tried
- Many American schools in the south were segregated when he was young
- American democracy is imperfect
- America’s political process is not pretty, as evidenced by the current 2016 race
- Cuba’s Castro’s more readily sharing his thoughts on where America is “falling short” will help us improve
- He “doesn’t disagree” with Castro’s view that America should provide “free” health care, education, and social security to all
We’d like to add his insane views on communism to help clarify why he insults the USA throughout the world.
Barack Obama told an audience of Argentinian youth that the differences between communism, socialism and capitalism make interesting conversation but just pick whatever works. The ideological-left US president suddenly doesn’t have an affinity for ideology.
He said in the past there was a sharp division between communists, socialists and capitalists but that is merely an intellectual argument and it’s not so today.
Two days after Benghazi attack, Libyan president sought meeting with Bill Clinton through Clinton Foundation event
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 276 pages of internal State Department documents revealing that within two days of the deadly terrorist attack on Benghazi, Mohamed Yusuf al-Magariaf, the president of Libya’s National Congress, asked to participate in a Clinton Global Initiative function and “meet President Clinton.” The meeting between the Libyan president and Bill Clinton had not previously been disclosed. The documents also show Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s staff coordinated with the Clinton Foundation’s staff to have her thank Clinton Global Initiative project sponsors for their “commitments” during a Foundation speech on September 25, 2009.
The Judicial Watch documents were obtained as a result of a federal court order in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department on May 28, 2013, (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-00772)).
In September 13, 2012, al-Magariaf advisor Dr. Fathi Nuah wrote to the Clinton Foundation’s Director of Foreign Policy Amitabh Desai: “Dr. Almagariaf will be addressing the United Nations this September in New York as the Libyan Head of State, and he expressed a wish to meet President Clinton and to participate at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting for New York as well.”
Four hours later, Desai emailed Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills asking, “Would USG [U.S. Government] have concerns about Libyan President being invited to CGI [Clinton Global Initiative]? Odd timing, I know.” Mills emailed back: “We would not have issues.”
Four days later, on September 17, Desai emailed Mills again, saying, The Libyan president is “asking for a meeting with WJC [William Jefferson Clinton] next week.” Desai asked, “Would you recommend accepting or declining the WJC meeting request?”
For a little insight into establishment thinking as they desperately attempt to cling to power, one might look to John Boehner.
If the Republican primaries do not produce a clear winner on the Republican National Convention’s first presidential ballot, former House Speaker John Boehner said the only man who can bring the party together is Speaker Paul Ryan.
He is the man who just signed the omnibus which funded all of Obama’s socialist agenda.
“If we don’t have a nominee who can win on the first ballot, I’m for none of the above,” Boehner said at the Futures Industry Association conference. “They all had a chance to win. None of them won. So I’m for none of the above. I’m for Paul Ryan to be our nominee.”
He has a point but if the establishment picks someone after millions have voted, it will mean the GOP picked someone who won nothing.
On Tuesday, Ryan said he would not rule out accepting the nomination at a brokered convention.
“You know, I haven’t given any thought to this stuff,” Ryan said “People say, ‘What about the contested convention?’ I say, ‘well, there are a lot of people running for president. We’ll see. Who knows.’”
Boehner has been quiet until now.
Boehner said that after the first ballot, “anybody can be nominated” at the convention in Cleveland.
True but if they do horse trading to reject the will of the people, they will destroy their cushy little existence at the same time.
Hillary Clinton was employing understatement when she:
… acknowledged during Wednesday’s Democratic debate that she was “not a natural politician” and expanded on the theme in an interview with the SiriusXM radio show “The Mayor” the following day.
“This is harder for me,” she said. “I admire the skills my husband and President Obama have. They’re charismatic and they’re compelling and they’re great orators. I do get up every day and say, ‘What can I do to try make someone’s life better?’”
Asking for votes on the basis of pity is one thing. But promising to throw them out of work is even worse. And that’s what Hillary, who needs to win coal-producing states Pennsylvania and Ohio, did yesterday. Daid Rutz in the Washington Free Beacon:
Hillary Clinton said that her policies would “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business” during Sunday night’s Ohio town hall on CNN.
Accuracy in Media
The mainstream media are content with giving Mrs. Clinton a pass on her many scandals, downplaying or minimizing information that could potentially damage her campaign. At the same time, media organizations work to bolster her air of inevitability as the chosen candidate by repeatedly drawing attention to the size of her lead in terms of the number of delegates she and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) each have.
After voting in 19 states, the latest delegate count shows Hillary Clinton with 1,130 delegates to 499 for Sanders. But those numbers could be misleading. Clinton has among her delegates 458 superdelegates, meaning elected officials and party officials who can vote for whomever they want, and who comprise about 30 percent of the total number of delegates needed to win the nomination. They have announced that they will vote for her, while just 22 superdelegates have declared support for Sanders. Superdelegates were established after the 1972 election in which Democratic candidate George McGovern won just one state, in order to give the party establishment a better chance to control the nominating process and avoid a repeat of that situation.
It is important to remember, however, that in December 2007 candidate Barack Obama had only 63 superdelegates to Mrs. Clinton’s 169. Yet in 2008 President Obama won the Democratic presidential primary with 463 superdelegates to Mrs. Clinton’s 257. Superdelegates are usually inclined to lend their vote to the candidate who is already winning.
It is no wonder that media reports emphasize Mrs. Clinton’s electability over Sanders. After all, the liberal media have put the full force of their reporting behind ensuring her campaign’s success, even though Sanders is making a surprisingly strong showing so far, having won eight of the 19 states that have held primaries or caucuses. He clearly has the enthusiasm factor going for him.
But the Clinton camp has other things to worry about as well. Bryan Pagliano, who set up Mrs. Clinton’s private email server at the start of her time as secretary of state, recently was granted immunity by the Justice Department. National Review’s Andy McCarthy notes that a “proffer agreement signals that an active grand-jury investigation may well be underway, and if it is not yet underway, it soon will be.”
