Time to End All Foreign Aid – The Future of Freedom Foundation

Yes, foreign aid should be cut to Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador, and cut completely and permanently. But foreign aid should also be cut to Israel ($3.3 billion requested for 2019), Egypt ($1.38 billion requested for 2019), Jordan ($1.275 billion requested for 2019), Afghanistan ($632.8 million requested for 2019), and Kenya ($624.3 requested for 2019). Even the $100,000 earmarked for Suriname in 2019 should be withheld.

That is because not one penny should be taken from a single American taxpayer and given to foreign governments, U.S. contractors, NGOs, relief organizations, or individual foreigners.

If it is not the proper role of the U.S. government to provide charity, fight poverty, provide job training, undertake disaster relief, fight disease, feed the hungry, increase literacy, build infrastructure, and drill wells for Americans, then it is certainly inappropriate to do those things for foreigners.

Doling out foreign aid is one of the most blatantly unconstitutional things that Congress does. The list of powers granted to the federal government in Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution includes nothing remotely related to foreign assistance. And there are no exceptions for natural disasters, humanitarian concerns, national interest, or political objectives.

It’s somewhat “humorous” when a USA Gooferment “judge” mentions “moral commitments”.

US military stops releasing Afghanistan war information

A government watchdog agency that monitors the U.S. war effort, now in its 18th year, said in a report to Congress on Wednesday that the U.S. military command in Kabul is no longer producing “district control data,” which shows the number of Afghan districts — and the percentage of their population — controlled by the government compared to the Taliban.

A Failsafe in a World of Falling Safes | TAPinto

When Farina tells her story, her eyes always tear at the word “foreclosure.” Her Orange home had four-bedrooms and was beautifully furnished but when the bank foreclosed after just a few months of her struggles, “I ended up giving almost everything away,” she said.

She remains hurt and confused about the quick foreclosure, but “I didn’t have anybody there to fight for me or show me the way.

”She was a victim of the predatory real estate shuffle in urban areas that got more than a few banks in hot water with the government, but she ended up with nothing but the satisfaction that the big lenders were fined. But satisfaction doesn’t pay the rent.

Sure your Gooferment will protect you. Notice that this woman’s banks got off with a fine. Shovel more money into the Gooferment cesspool. Did they give it to her to get back what she lost — obviously not. Private charity is efficient and effective; Gooferment “charity” is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy. It’s a sham. And, it deceives “We, The Sheeple” into thinking that they don’t have to be individually responsible to fund charity because the Gooferment does it.
