I am sure there is an excuse for this, but why would the Obama Admin. spend Millions on another Country’s road when they tell us our (INFRASTRUCTURE (roads and bridges) are falling apart? According to : JUDICIAL WATCH’S VERDICT, January, 2017 this is what happened:
SURPRISE, SURPRISE, THE UNITED STATES IS THE FIRST NATION TO DONATE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO YET ANOTHER GLOBAL WARMING EXPERIMENT—run by the famously corrupt UNITED NATIONS–that aims to forge “climate resilient infrastructure” in third world countries. The money will help build a bicycle highway in Columbia and bring electric buses and a “green-bus corridor” to Mexico.
It is part of an initiative called C$) Cities Finance Facility, launched at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris, 2015. The global warming powwow in France already has cost American taxpayers a chunk of change, and Judicial Watch made the numbers public last summer after obtaining records from the U. S. Secret Service and the Department of the Air Force. The documents offer a detailed breakdown of the cost and total expenditure to have President Obama attend the Paris shindig, an eye-popping, $4,165,0681. Judicial Watch had to file a lawsuit to get the information because the administration refused to provide it under the Freedom of Information Act which was enacted to ensure government transparency in exactly these kinds of situations.
The first two million dollars doled out in October 2015 by the United States will fund two urban pilot projects in Latin America that are predicted to bring “climate-change adaptation and mitigation benefits.” The first project is a 25 kilometer bicycle highway in Bogota, Colombia that will connect citizens from low, middle and high-income neighborhoods to work, education and recreation opportunities. An announcement published by the U.S. Government calls the project a “first-of-its-kind,” traversing the Colombian city from south to north. The rest of the money will buy a fleet of at least 100 electric buses for Mexico City and install a “green-bus corridor” along one of its major thoroughfares. It’s expected to serve and estimated 133,400 Mexicans daily, providing connections to metro lines. This is an important investment for the United States, a government official claims in the announcement, because the impacts of climate change are impeding cities from delivering reliable services. “especially to the poorest” (my thought, will this help the poor living in the dumps and trash piles?)
Years ago, the Obama administration determined that the poor will feel the brunt of climate change, and it has cost American taxpayers MONSTROUS sums. In the last few years, the U.S. Government has funded a number of programs, both domestic and international, to prepare those Communities for the impact. In 2012, in 2012, the administration asked Congress for a whopping $770 MILLION to help developing countries with climate change initiatives after it already had spent #323 MILLION on a project called Global Climate Change Initiative.
OK, THIS ARTICLE GOES ON AND ON. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS SPENDING OF MONEY OVERSEAS BECAUSE: 1. WE ARE BORROWING IT ALL AND HAVE A DEFICIT OF OVER 18 TRILLION, and 2. we need our infrastructure repaired and our citizens need jobs.
PRESIDENT TRUMP, we need this money here, help us put and end to this ridiculous spending. No wonder other countries didn’t want Trump to win.
