Obama still wasting our money
Regular reader Barry posted this on his FB page so I swiped it.
From Accuracy In Media -- The U. S. State Department yesterday announced that the Obama Administration has agreed to contribute $4 billion to the United Nations Global Fund to fight AIDs, Tuberculosis, and Malaria from 2011 to 2013.
The $4 billion represents a 38% increase over the previous U.S. commitment to the fund.
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that a total of $11.7 billion has been raised from 40 countries, the European Commission, faith-based organizations, private foundations, and various corporations.
This means that over one-third of the money will come from the pockets of US taxpayers.
Oil-rich nations like Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, and the United Arab Emirates contribute next to nothing, and China, which holds most of the US $14 trillion debt, agreed to provide a measly $14 million.
The contemptible United Nations is the closest thing to a world government for which liberal globalists like Obama pine. It would seem that no amount of domestic debt and economic trouble will prevent Obama from subjugating the interests of the US to that of the UN's demand for our money. The despots, dictators, and thugs that control the UN couldn't be more anti-American. Why liberals adore this utterly corrupt organization escapes me.
