Obama's last money shower for the UN: some $9.2 billion

Republican lawmakers and foreign policy experts blasted President Barack Obama's announcement on Tuesday that he would fully withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2016 as a move that could embolden the Taliban and eventually lead to a resurgence in violence.

(Worthy News) - In its last year in office, the Obama Administration showered at least some $9.2 billion on the United Nations and its sprawling array of organizations, according to a document recently posted on the State Department website.

The total is gleaned from a document that summarizes U.S. government spending for international organizations, and is about 20 per cent higher than the $7.7 billion figure given out by State for 2010, before the Obama Administration abruptly quit providing any overall tally for its U.N. support.

The overall U.S. bill for international organizations of every stripe is just under $10.5 billion, meaning that U.N. organizations absorb about 88 per cent of such U.S. government spending. [ Source ]

  1. Before obama became president, I knew this community organizer was a big target for some organization which I wasn't sure of but, I had an inkling that this must have something to do with the New World Order that the Bible talks about. I knew his shady background from his origin to Indonesia and on. And how he shrewdly twisted records from a little known college and on to the big time. What amazed me, despite my vocal and letters and comments about this sinister character, was that the gullibility of the American voters who voted him to become the most unqualified and worst president ever of the U.S.. I was so scared how this community organizer would deconstruct America. And true indeed, I lost some properties from this wicked Kenyan using IRS to trample me down. And the only thing that kept my sanity from this debacle was my belief in our Lord Jesus Christ. I have been steadfast in my faith in the Lord Jesus. He is all I want. One of my favorite verses is Psalm 61:3, "For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy."

    • It's only going to get worse. I couldn't care less about Trump's latest actions. It was long time since time for the USA to control it borders and properly vet immigrants and visitors to the USA. The important word there was "properly" not abusively or willy-nilly because of prejudice. However, Trump is not so altruistic as most of the (again deceived) Republicans believe. If you thought it was unfair, even persecuted, under Obama, wait a bit till Trump gets frustrated on one front, then see how he goes nuts on the other. Just because he's going to do a few good things doesn't mean you don't need that faith in Jesus just as much each day, very likely more so in my opinion, now. Hold tight to Him and I pray our Father will keep you, in Messiah, safe and in even keel in times ahead. Amen.

    • The US funds 22% of the UN. Isn't it time we put that money to better use domestically, instead of some ideology of unification which we all know will never happen.
