Even after removing a rat from the house, the damage he’s done often isn’t discovered until later.
Move a little furniture, and how much dirty work the rat was doing in the shadows is suddenly revealed.
With former President Barack Obama, his dirty deeds were too often exposed after he secretly did what he wanted in defiance of the American people and their leaders in Congress. Now that he’s been swept out of the White House, his dirty dealings continue to surface as President Donald Trump works on cleaning out the swamp rat’s nest.
Obama’s love of American enemies was further exposed when he quietly released news he let loose hundreds of millions of US dollars to a terrorist state attacking a US ally. From Business Insider:
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, according to Associated Press reports.
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.
Obama knew lawmakers wanted the money held until Congress had a say in the issue.
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.
The former administration readily presented the American public one plan of action in the Middle East and then did something different when dealing with funds and foreign states.
The last-minute move fits within other actions taken by the Obama administration in the last weeks of their tenure, The Daily Caller reported.
Obama also refused to veto a United Nations resolution condemning Israel for settlement building activity, an act which President Trump immediately denounced. Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry similarly admonished Israel in a parting shot, declaring that a two-state solution was the only possible path forward to peace.
Throughout his presidency, Obama defended US aid to the Palestinian Authority saying it was essential to bolstering the two-state solution. The Obama administration defended the aid despite revelations of dealings between the Palestinian Authority and the terrorist government in the Gaza strip.
Anyone believing Obama worked to bolster US allies in the Middle East needs to clean out the rats nest in their head.
The former president accomplished more damage to US foreign relations in his last weeks in office than anyone in modern history. We can only hope he stays on the golf course indefinitely.
