Obama’s Parting Middle Finger Salute to America & Israel Last Friday

From Newsmax:

US Sent $221 Million to Palestinians in Obama’s Last Hours

Officials say the Obama administration in its waning hours defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority.

GOP members of Congress had been holding up the money.

A State Department official and several congressional aides say the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning, just before Donald Trump became president.

More than $227 million in foreign affairs funding was released at the time, including $4 million for climate change programs and $1.25 million for U.N. organizations.

At least two GOP lawmakers had placed holds on the Palestinian funds. Congressional holds are generally respected by the executive branch but are not legally binding.

The official and the aides weren’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter and demanded anonymity.

—oo—

Where’s the surprise that King Putt would miss a chance for a parting shot?  $221 million buys a lot of missiles that get launched into Israel and pays a lot of “martyr” benefits.

I’m left wondering if the payment can be rescinded since it was illegal.  Frankly, any payment/aide to the so-called Palestinians needs to end until they behave like civilized humans.

    Probably not if he put cash on a plane and flew it out. Otherwise maybe. HR passed a bill overwhelmingly in November about midnight actions. It never cleared Senate but hr 21 in January again passed http://www.watcherofweasels.org/issa-brings-back-midnight-rules-relief-act-h-r-21-to-reverse-obamas-last-minute-regulations/

    Seriously? The chances of this mob becoming civilized is about equal to the chances of the return of the 12th Imam.

    I saw it on Fox this morning. Why couldn’t Congress stop it? I thought they had the power of the purse. What did Zero do, call the Treasury and tell them to wire the money? I see Haley got confirmed for Ambassador to the UN. Where is the confirmation for Secretary of State? Also why couldn’t the turtle get the bill passed in November? He needs to get busy or get out of the way. The clock is ticking. Lets get these people confirmed.

      It’s all kabuki theater. The Rs want the lemmings to know we have a government and not a dictatorship. Never mind this is how Zero governed the first 2 years with both houses in the D column, and also the last 6 when the Rs wouldn’t stop him.
