The utter foolishness of the current administration continues to be seen as Secretary of State John "Swiftboat" Kerry gave praise to Muslim Brotherhood led Egypt for "their version of democracy" and released $250 million of American tax payer money into the Islamic regime's hands.
The Associated Press reports,
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday rewarded Egypt for President Mohammed Morsi's pledges of political and economic reforms by releasing $250 million in American aid to support the country's "future as a democracy."
Yet Kerry also served notice that the Obama administration will keep close watch on how Morsi, who came to power in June as Egypt's first freely elected president, honors his commitment and that additional U.S. assistance would depend on it.
The Capitalism Institute enumerates why this kind of aid should not be given:
- We’re creating an arms race. Giving aid to Egypt and Israel is making tensions grow stronger, fueling an arms race that could end in bloodshed.
- We’re aiding the future enemy. We have a horrible track record at this. We generally give cash and weapons to people who are going to kill our people within a decade or so. Let’s stop it.
- It’s none of our bloody business. Egypt isn’t Texas, California, or New York. This has nothing — nothing — to do with us. Let’s keep our money out of it.
- We’re completely and totally broke. We have an economic problem in the way of debt that will destroy our economy unless we get back on the right track. It’s not just bad economics to do this — it’s a symptom of a disease that really is going to kill us.
- Stealing from Americans is wrong. Stealing is always wrong. Stealing to give to a tyrant is even worse. Stealing from Americans to give to a tyrant in another part of the world is just weird and insane — there’s no upside. We gain nothing. This isn’t good politics — it’s just weird, a waste, and a great example of how dark and twisted DC is.
"The United States can and wants to do more," Kerry said. "Reaching an agreement with the IMF will require further effort on the part of the Egyptian government and broad support for reform by all Egyptians. When Egypt takes the difficult steps to strengthen its economy and build political unity and justice, we will work with our Congress at home on additional support."
The American people are saying that we don't want to do more for these Islamic fascists. We are trillions in debt and yet we are slipping millions, providing F-16s, and $1 billion worth of German U-boats to a group that has already been at the forefront of telling us how our nation should be governed.
The day before Kerry's announcement, he hinted that the Obama administration is continuing to be behind Morsi, in remarks he made at the Marriott Zamalek Hotel in Cairo. During an impromptu questioning of Kerry by a reporter and the following question and answer took place. This partial transcript is provided by the State Department's website:
QUESTION: (In progress) heard his conversation with the opposition members. Did you hear anything from them that would suggest that they’re going to renounce their boycott of the election and actually take part?
SECRETARY KERRY: No, I heard very passionate people who are deeply committed to Egypt and to their version of the democracy that they fought for in their revolution. And I completely understand that. I wanted to hear from them. I explored their strategy and thoughts.
They’re deeply committed to human rights, to democracy, to freedom of expression, and to a real political process in which they feel they have a voice. America supports all of those things. And so listening to them was really important. There was a divergence of views in terms of the adamancy, but they all shared a sense that they needed to be more part of the process, more included, and they recognized the economic challenge, but they believe there’s also a need to fill the promise of democracy. And so do we. We believe that too.
Praising democracy? Really Kerry? Muslim Brotherhood member, Egyptian President and self-proclaimed Pharaoh Mohamed Morsi sought to grab all power for himself. They have only the form of civilized governing and giving the people a voice. What they really want is the power all to themselves and enforce totalitarian Shariah law upon the people of Egypt and murder the infidels there.
Additionally, the United States now, at least this administration doesn't support freedom if it is in opposition to their views. I mean it is already referring to American patriots and our Founding Fathers as domestic terrorists and training Federal agencies to view them as such. The Department of Homeland Security is stockpiling ammunition at an alarming rate to the point that even Sarah Palin is claiming they are getting ready to deal with us using that ammunition.
The Obama administration has already said it doesn't need clear evidence to kill Americans and has, in fact, engaged in the killing of Americans abroad. John Brennan, nominated to head the Central Intelligence Agency by Barack Obama, has been questioned time and again about whether he thinks he has the authority to assassinate Americans on American soil and each time he dodges the question. Apparently he does believe he has the authority, but understands the political ramifications of affirming it.
All of this leads me to believe that the current administration does approve of Morsi's brand of democracy and that is why they support it. They do not believe in a Constitutional Republic, which is what we are, nor do they really believe in the United States Constitution as written by the Founding Fathers. However, traitors such as Obama and Kerry (and yes, I can imagine every Vietnam veteran living today wants to spit when he sees John Kerry representing the United States), are only too happy to take our money and support a system of government that is diametrically opposed to America, even contemplating supplying Syrian rebels made up of al-Qaeda terrorists, with weapons.
In case none of this makes sense to you, understand this: You and I are paying, with our tax dollars, to empower our enemies. Then our representatives pat them on the back to tell them what a good job they are doing. Doesn't that make you feel all safe and secure?
