    America First Charity Begins at Home

    I got an email…. CHRISTMAS IS COMING -…

     So while I am trying to decide what?  DONATING ITEMS OR MONEY to WHICH GROUP of

    non-profit to support “FOR ONLY $19.00 A MONTH”.

    I’m sure you have seen this before so it is just a reminder as the appeals flood the mailbox. 

     AMERICA IS MY COUNTRY, PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ADMINISTRATION IS COMING

    TRUMP SAID “WHAT A MESS” Several times in his campaign rallies.

    THE US GOVERNMENT UNDER BUSH (R) AND OBAMA (D) PAID 70% OF NATO TO FIGHT THE 16 YEARS OF WAR AND CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST, USING AMERICAN TAXPAYERS MONEY, THE OTHER 28 COUNTRIES PAID 30%.

    THE US GOVERNMENT UNDER BUSH (R) AND OBAMA (D) HAS SPENT $6,000,000,000,000.00 SIX TRILLION DOLLARS OF AMERICAN TAXPAYERS MONEY FOR 16 YEARS OF CONTINUOUS WAR AND CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

    OBAMA’S EXECUTIVE AGREEMENT SENT $1.7 BILLION $$$$ IN CASH TO IRAN.

    THE $1.7 BILLION $$$$ IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL WAS OBAMA’S EXECUTIVE AGREEMENT

    TRUMP SAID “WHAT A MESS” and he promised to fix it.

    Mr. Trump called the agreement reached with Iran in July 2015, “one of the most incompetent deals of any kind I’ve ever seen,” and he promised to fix it.

    BECAUSE THE IRAN DEAL IS AN EXECUTIVE AGREEMENT, NOT A TREATY, THE NEW PRESIDENT TRUMP, HAS GREAT LATITUDE TO ALTER OR SCRAP IT.

    IN  “AMERICA FIRST” TERMS, PRESIDENT TRUMP’S DECISION ABOUT WHAT TO DO WITH THE IRAN DEAL WILL BE AN EARLY TEST OF HIS WILLINGNESS TO ACT UNILATERALLY.

    America’s  gonna  get right back to where it  started from.

    Years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

    Now we are engaged in a great civil election war 2015-2016, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, shall endure.

    We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to rededicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that, that nation might live.

    It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

    We must never forget the brave men, living and dead, who struggled here.

    THE WORLD “WILL” LONG NOTE, AND “WILL” LONG REMEMBER WHAT AMERICAN VOTERS DO  ON NOV 8, 2016.

    THE WORLD WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT “WE THE PEOPLE” DO HERE.

    It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the sustain the  work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.

    It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task before us

    That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion.

    That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain

    THAT THIS NATION, UNDER GOD, SHALL HAVE A NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM ON NOE 8, 2016  —

    AND THAT GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, SHALL NOT PERISH FROM THE EARTH.

    Tax money to the Iranian military

    snippet

    This is a bigger issue than a single payment, no matter how large. The cash money sent to Iran changes our historic foreign policy of isolating Iran as the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, and it sets a new precedent for sending money to foreign governments from the long-established Judgment Fund. To deal with the long-term precedent, I authored a bill to limit the future use of THE JUDGMENT FUND and make sure no future president can transfer American tax dollars to a nation that sponsors terrorism.

    JUL 14, 2016  RE: THE JUDGMENT FUND (click on the link)

    Senators Fischer and Lankford Introduce Bill to Expose Taxpayer Funds Transferred to Iran

    Legislation Will Allow Americans to Track Payments to Foreign Nations

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – This morning, U.S. Senators Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) and James Lankford (R-Okla.) introduced legislation to track taxpayer-funded payments to foreign nations and prevent harmful transactions from happening in the future. The bill, known as the

    JUDGMENT FUND TRANSPARENCY AND TERRORISM FINANCING PREVENTION ACT,

     expands upon legislation that Senator Fischer introduced last year with Senator Cory Gardner (R-Colo.). It would require a public accounting of the taxpayer funds that are distributed out of the Judgment Fund.

    Senator Fischer released the following statement:

    “Hardworking American families have every right to see exactly how their tax dollars are being spent, especially when used to fund hostile enemies of the United States. That is why I’m proud to join Senator Lankford to offer a new version of the Judgment Fund Transparency Act, which includes greater oversight of taxpayer-funded payments to foreign nations. More transparency leads to greater accountability and through this bill, we can hold our government to task for their actions. We should not be in the business of providing funds to state sponsors of terrorism.”

    Senator Lankford released the following statement:

    “One year after the Iran Nuclear agreement, we still have the same concerns with Iran as before. Their secrecy is disconcerting and they continue to be spread terrorism and a radical Islamist ideology around the region. President Obama’s billion-dollar payment to Iran in January, which we now know is funding Iran’s military expansion, is an appalling example of Executive Branch governance.

    “The bill Senator Fischer and I have introduced will provide the American public with necessary details of this dangerous billion-dollar payment and ensure that no taxpayer dollars are ever again used to fund the extremist and violent ambitions of rogue nations like Iran.  Subsidizing Iran’s military is perhaps the worst use of taxpayer dollars ever by an American president.”

    The Judgment Fund, which is administered by the Treasury Department, is used to pay for certain court judgments and settlements against the federal government. Between 2013 and 2015, the federal government paid more than $10 billion in Judgment Fund awards with scant transparency or oversight.

    This fund has continued to come under increased scrutiny, as it is allowed to allocate unlimited funds to cover government liability in lawsuits and is not subject to the annual appropriations process. The Judgement Fund Transparency Act would provide hardworking taxpayers and members of Congress the ability to see exactly how tax dollars are being spent on these litigation expenses.

    In February of 2015, The Washington Examiner published an editorial praising Senator Fischer’s bill:

    “Senators Cory Gardner, R-Colo., and Deb Fischer, R-Neb., are co-sponsoring a bill that would fix this problem and bring transparency to the Judgment Fund, the treasury account that pays judgments and settlements to plaintiffs. The Judgment Fund Transparency Act is just two pages long. It simply requires the Treasury Department to make public through its website the details of every payment the fund makes… The bill deserves broad bipartisan support. For anyone who believes in government transparency, it’s a no-brainer.”

    WHAT’S MISSING?

    #2 Building the wall to protect America against the heroin epidemic,

    Feb 23, 2016 – The opioid epidemic has been called the worst drug crisis in American history.

    Mexican cartels, have grown their share of the heroin market tremendously in recent years. Together, Mexican drug traffickers smuggled nearly a quarter-million pounds of heroin into the US in 2014, according to The Washington Post.

    Ohio has the highest heroin overdose death rate, while New York ranked 19th in the nation in 2014 among the 43 states for which data were available.

    Build  the Wall stop the heroin

    #4 Lying, extremely careless, grossly generalistic, deleting 30,000 emails

    #14 Bad judgment of the establishment Hillary Clinton and John Kerry voted for the Iraq war resolution Colin Powell’s lying’ to the UN Security Council was “the game changer” that started 16 years of horrific wars and conflict and completely destabilizing and destroying the middle east

    #15 Public Corruption  The study calculated that government corruption costs American taxpayers tens of billions of dollars a year. The 10 most corrupt states listed in the study, in order, are Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Alaska, South Dakota, Kentucky and Florida. The Justice Department defines public corruption as “crimes involving abuses of the public trust by government officials,” including crimes ranging from bribery, extortion and vote-buying to obstruction of justice, money laundering and fraud.

    #17 Indeed, America, from a republic to a democracy, to socialism, to Agenda 21 globalization, to Bush’s New World Order under the United Nations control.

    #20 The Art of War

    What is essential in war is victory, not prolonged operations

    WE HAVE HEARD OF STUPID HASTE IN WAR, (IRAN)

    CLEVERNESS HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN ASSOCIATED WITH LONG DELAYS. 

    THERE IS NO INSTANCE OF A COUNTRY HAVING BENEFITED FROM PROLONGED WARFARE.

    Now, when your weapons are dulled, your ardor damped, your strength exhausted and your treasure spent, other chieftains will spring up to take advantage of your extremity. Then no man, however wise, will be able to avert the consequences that must ensue.

    #21 HOW THE DEMOCRATS DESTROYED DETROIT  March 3, 2013  DETROIT — where the population is 82.7 percent black, is a city on the brink of ruination. At the center of that ruination IS 50 YEARS OF DEMOCRAT RULE. Detroit’s downward spiral has been legendary. Once the fourth largest city in the nation, and home to its largest industry, Detroit’s population has been cut in half, from 1.5 million in 1970, to less than 700,000 in 2012. Median household income is $27,862 compared to the state median of $48,669. The poverty level is 36.2 percent compared to a statewide level of 15.7. The murder rate is 11 times that of New York City, and the unemployment rate is above 18 percent, more than double the national average.

    Jan 24, 2016 According to the letter, Kilpatrick said he knew about the issues with the Flint water system back in 2004, despite the city being with the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department until 2014.

  • Trump’s Immigration Wall in the UK?

    Taking page from Trump? UK building ‘big new wall’ to stop illegal immigrants

    Fox News‎ – 2 days ago

    In what could be a told you so moment for Donald Trump, the U.K. on Tuesday announced …

    The UK’s southern border checks are conducted in northern FRANCE and attempted illegal crossings have more than quadrupled in recent years. UK Border Force guards on FRENCH soil stopped 84,088 illegal immigrants last year, figures released last month show.

    The wall was announced by the UK’s immigration minister Robert Goodwill on Wednesday, after attempts to illegally enter the UK via Calais quadrupled. Construction is expected to begin this month.

    Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) has issued a report showing that despite the addition of new immigration judge resources, the backlog of removal docket cases in the national immigration court system administered by the Department of Justice Executive Office for Immigration Review (DOJ EOIR) continues to grow.

    Many open borders advocates and liberal progressives seem to believe that it is the United States government’s job to act in loco parentis for all of the failed and failing countries in the world — and that the only way to do this is to welcome hundreds of thousands to our shores from across the globe. As often as not, the leaders of those countries gladly cede that role to us rather than take the hard steps needed to bootstrap their people, their societies, and their economies into the 21st Century.

     BUT TAKING ON SUCH A ROLE THROUGH TURNING A BLIND EYE TOWARD MASS MIGRATION IS IRRESPONSIBLE, AND NO MORE REALISTIC OR LIKELY TO BE SUCCESSFUL THAN BELIEVING OUR INTERNATIONAL ROLE IS TO BE THE GLOBAL POLICEMAN.

    TO DATE, THE UNITED STATES HAS PROVIDED OVER $4.5 BILLION TO HELP SYRIAN REFUGEES AND THOSE DISPLACED WITHIN SYRIA, and I am proud that that makes us to date the largest single donor from external in the world.

    So today February 4, 2016  the United States is announcing our latest contribution, which is over $925 million. This new funding brings U.S. humanitarian assistance in response to this conflict to more than $5.1 billion since the start of the crisis.

    February 4, 2016 Remarks John Kerry Secretary of State London, United Kingdom

    Well, your excellencies all, I’m cutting down significantly because we were originally given a little more time, but I’m very happy to try to fit it all in as quickly as I can. AFTER ALMOST FIVE YEARS OF FIGHTING, IT’S PRETTY INCREDIBLE THAT AS WE COME HERE TO LONDON IN 2016, THE SITUATION ON THE GROUND IS ACTUALLY WORSE, NOT BETTER.

    TO DATE, THE UNITED STATES HAS PROVIDED OVER 4.5 BILLION TO HELP SYRIAN REFUGEES AND THOSE DISPLACED WITHIN SYRIA, and I am proud that that makes us to date the largest single donor from external in the world.

    So today the United States is announcing our latest contribution, which is over $925 million. That includes more than 600 million in direct humanitarian aid to provide food, shelter, water, medical care, and other vital relief to millions of people inside of Syria and across the region. It also includes 325 million in development assistance, 290 million of which is new funding specifically to support schooling for 300,000 refugee youth in Jordan and Lebanon – meeting directly, hopefully, the challenge that we face here today.

    This new funding brings U.S. humanitarian assistance in response to this conflict to more than $5.1 billion since the start of the crisis

    Humanitarian Assistance Funding Numbers by Country

    Country This Announcement Total – Since FY 2012
    Inside Syria $314 million $2.6 billion

    The dollar amounts in the boxes are the cumulative total of foreign aid given to each country from 1946-2014. Dollar figures in the story are inflation-adjusted to 2014.

    In (by)  2014, Sudan received a total of $263,922,519 in foreign assistance from the U.S.

    That full amount in 2014 was in economic aid; the U.S. did not provide any military aid to Sudan in 2014.

    When you hover on the year on the graphs, you will find the amount of U.S. foreign aid given to Sudan during that year.

    Using the most recent data available from USAID. the UNITED STATES AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT, InsideGov ranked the 25 countries that receive the most total foreign assistance from the U.S.

    The wide array of foreign policy positions and ideas indicate there are a lot of ways the United States can be involved on the international stage. With this in mind, Graphiq politics site InsideGov decided to examine which countries receive the most foreign aid from the U.S. Using the most recent data available from the United States Agency for International Development, InsideGov ranked the 25 countries that receive the most total foreign financial assistance (the cumulative total) from 1946-2016

    from the U.S., listing countries from smallest to largest total received.

    Foreign assistance includes loans, contracts and grants, but not debt forgiveness.

    Policy Analysis No. 65

    The Continuing Failure of Foreign Aid 1946-2016

    By James Bovard

    January 31, 1986

    Executive Summary

    For 40 years, U.S. foreign aid has been judged by its intentions, not its results. Foreign aid programs have been perpetuated and expanded not because they have succeeded, but because giving foreign aid still seems like a good idea. But foreign aid has rarely done anything that countries could not have done for themselves. And it has often encouraged the recipient governments’ worst tendencies—helping to underwrite programs and policies that have starved thousands of people and derailed struggling economies.

    In agriculture, in economic planning, in food assistance, U.S. foreign aid has routinely failed to benefit the foreign poor. In Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the U.S. Agency for International Development (AID) has dotted the countryside with “white elephants”: idle cement plants, near-empty convention centers, abandoned roads, and—perhaps the biggest white elephant of them all—a growing phalanx of corrupt, meddling, and overpaid bureaucrats.

    Since 1946, the United States has given over $146 billion in humanitarian assistance to foreign countries. In 1985, the United States provided over $10 billion in non-military aid abroad, ranging from free food to balance-of-payments support to project-assistance and population-planning programs. AID employs over 4,500 employees to administer these programs, many of which have expanded rapidly under the Reagan administration.

    Americans have a long tradition of generously aiding the victims of foreign earthquakes, famines, and wars. Before World War II, private citizens provided almost all of America’s foreign assistance. After World War II, the Truman administration decided that a larger, more centralized effort was necessary to revitalize the war-torn economies of Europe. Economic planning was the rage in Washington in the late 1940s, and Marshall Plan administrators exported their new-found panacea. The Marshall Plan poured over $13 billion into Europe and coincided with an economic revival across the continent. The best analysis indicates that Europe would have recovered regardless of U.S. aid, and that the clearest effect of the Marshall Plan was to increase the recipient governments’ control of their economies.[1]

    The apparent success of the Marshall Plan led Truman in 1949 to propose his Point Four Program to provide a smaller version of the Marshall Plan for poor countries in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America. Truman declared that Point Four would be “a bold new program for making the benefits of our scientific advances and industrial progress available for the improvement and growth of undeveloped areas.”[2]

    In the 1950s, the Eisenhower administration downplayed humanitarian aid, concentrating on security assistance to strategic allies. In 1954, Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey pushed the Food For Peace program through Congress, but that was the largest innovation in economic assistance during the decade. When John F. Kennedy took the helm in 1961, the stage was set for a huge expansion of foreign aid. In a special message to Congress, Kennedy called for “a dramatic turning point in the troubled history of foreign aid” and proclaimed that the sixties would be the “decade of development”—“the period when many less- developed nations make the transition into self-sustaining growth.” Kennedy placed heavy stress on the willingness of recipient governments “to undertake necessary internal reform and self-help.”[3] In 1961, AID was created, and the U.S. foreign aid bureaucracy came into its own.

    Despite Kennedy’s stress on requiring reforms from recipient governments, foreign aid routinely went to countries pursuing policies destined to turn them into permanent economic cripples. Partly as a result of a widespread perception that such aid was usually wasted, it consistently ranked as one of the least popular government programs with the American public.[4]

    From the mid-sixties to the early seventies, South Vietnam received the bulk of U.S. economic aid. In 1973, Congress, concerned about the ineffectiveness of U.S. aid, heavily revised aid-program goals to focus more on social services and less on economic development.

    When Ronald Reagan took office in 1981, many observers expected a thorough reform of U.S. foreign aid. Reagan declared in a major speech before the annual meeting of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, “Unless a nation puts its own financial and economic house in order, no amount of aid will produce progress.”[5] Since then, despite Reagan’s tough rhetoric on requiring reform from recipient governments, little has changed. American foreign aid still suffers the same problems it did when Kennedy took office in 1961. Despite countless reforms, foreign aid is still a failure.

    Instead of breaking the “endless cycle of poverty,” foreign aid has become the opiate of the Third World. AID and other donors have encouraged Third World governments to rely on handouts instead of on themselves for development. No matter how irresponsible, corrupt, or oppressive a Third World government may be, there is always some Western government or international agency anxious to supply it with a few more million dollars. By subsidizing political irresponsibility and pernicious policies, foreign aid ill serves the world’s poor.

    American foreign aid has often harmed the Third World poor. In Indonesia, the government confiscated subsistence farmers’ meager plots for AID-financed irrigation canals. In Mali, farmers were forced to sell their crops at giveaway prices to a joint project of AID and the Mali government. In Egypt, Haiti, and elsewhere, farmers have seen the prices for their own crops nose-dive when U.S. free food has been given to their countries.

    AID cannot be blamed for all the mistakes made in the projects it bankrolls. However, by providing a seemingly endless credit line to governments regardless of their policies, AID effectively discourages governments from learning from and correcting their mistakes. Giving some Third World governments perpetual assistance is about as humanitarian as giving an alcoholic the key to a brewery. Good intentions are no excuse for helping to underwrite an individual’s—or a country’s— self-destruction.

    Foreign aid programs appear to be incorrigible. For 35 years, American foreign aid policymakers seem to have learned nothing and forgotten nothing. U.S. foreign aid projects routinely repeat the same mistakes today that were committed decades ago. One telltale ironic report title from the General Accounting Office says it all: “Experience—A Potential Tool for Improving U.S. Assistance Abroad.”[6]

    This study focuses on the failure of U.S. humanitarian aid to achieve its goals. It begins with a close examination of one of the most popular foreign aid programs, Food for Peace. Then comes a review of AID’s record in resurrecting the economies of Central America, followed by an analysis of AID’s role in African agricultural development. AID’s achievements in Egypt and Indonesia are then reviewed, followed by an analysis of AID’s role in spurring the development of private business and capitalism in poor countries. The study concludes with an analysis of why U.S. foreign aid has failed in the past and why it will most likely fail in the future. Military aid and security assistance is a different issue and is not examined here.

    Why U.S. Foreign Aid Fails

    May 31, 2013

    For upwards of 50 years the U.S. federal government has been sending developmental aid to other countries trying to create vibrant economies. Yet, there have been no recorded monumental successes with the use of developmental aid. Based on the high standard of living enjoyed in the United States, you might think that the U.S. government would know how to replicate that standard of living, but they don’t, says Christopher Coyne, F. A. Harper professor of economics at the Mercatus Center.

    In the minds of many first world leaders, development of impoverished nations does not come from going through the same long process first world countries did. Instead, it contains a top-down approach that promises great things like ending poverty. However, there are multiple reasons why state-provided aid cannot bring nations out of poverty:

    • Policymakers do not have access to the knowledge needed to allocate scarce resources to their best uses. In his critique of socialism in the 1930s and 1940s, Nobel Laureate Friedrich Hayek made this exact point, noting that even the most qualified and benevolent planners lack the knowledge to produce even the most basic items in a cost-effective manner.
    • Aid creates the incentive for already dysfunctional governments to remain ineffective. A cross-country study by Stephen Knack of the World Bank found that foreign aid undermines the quality of political institutions in recipient countries through weakened accountability of political actors, more corruption, greater chances of conflict, and a weakening of the incentive to reform inefficient institutions and policies.
    • Government agencies tend to focus on spending money as quickly as possible on observable outputs to signal their importance and the need for more money. In the absence of clear lines of accountability, money is often wasted.

    The current operations of aid to foreign countries fail because there is not enough supervision as to where the funds go, or how the funds are spent specifically. The real solution to these problems is the guarantee of person liberty and property for citizens in those impoverished nation. Human nature will do the rest.
