How the State Department announced it was spending $10 Billion will infuriate you

The leftwing media is jumping for joy.

They are reporting that Trump is backing down on his promise to build the wall.

And what the government decided to spend taxpayer dollars on instead will make you furious.

The U.S. State Department announced it is sending $10 Billion in foreign aid to Central America.

In a statement, the State Department said it was committing to “$5.8 billion in support of institutional reforms, development, and economic growth” in Central America.

It went on to commit to “private and public investment in Mexico totaling 4.8 billion, to include committing $2 billion for suitable projects in southern Mexico.”

The State Department’s press release stated:

The United States and Mexico today commit to strengthen and expand our bilateral cooperation to foster development and increase investment in southern Mexico and in Central America to create a zone of prosperity. Both countries recognize the strong links between promoting development and economic growth in southern Mexico and the success of promoting prosperity, good governance, and security in Central America. The United States welcomes the Comprehensive Development Plan launched by the Government of Mexico in concert with the governments of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to promote these goals. The United States and Mexico will lead in working with regional and international partners to build a more prosperous and secure Central America to address the underlying causes of migration, and so that citizens of the region can build better lives for themselves and their families at home.

They claim they are trying to get to the root cause of the immigration problem by throwing American taxpayer cash at the economies of countries like Honduras.

But the media told us all the illegals in the migrant caravan were seeking asylum – not immigrating for economic reasons.

Foreign aid has proven to be like throwing money into a black hole.

Third world nations become dependent on U.S. foreign aid.

And it props up dictators or corrupt governments that funnel away American taxpayer cash to pay for their own lavish lifestyles.

Senator Rand Paul has pointed out that 76 percent of all foreign aid went to the most corrupt countries as rated by an independent third party.

No one bats an eye at shipping off cratefuls of cash to foreign governments.

But getting $5 Billion to fund the border wall is like pulling teeth.

We must secure our border first.

    So much of our tax payer money is going to undeserving countries for frivolous reasons. 37.5 million went to the U.N. to aid in abortions around the world. They won’t spend the money to protect our southern border but they WILL put it out there to countries that hate our guts and want us, Americans and America, dead> Democrats just are not getting any smarter.

  2. Why on earth has it become our (the US taxpayers) responsibility to prop up 3rd world countries, so that these same countries can create reasonable living conditions for their own people??? Why have we become the biggest contributor of handouts in the world??? Increasing foreign aid to countries who have no intention of using the money to help their people, will not stop immigrants from wanting to come and enter the US legally or illegally. It’s time we were sensible about what our expectations should be here. All potential immigrants have to do, is to follow a simple set of rules we already have in place, to legally gain entrance just as past legal immigrants have done for many years. Why is this so difficult to understand? If we are country based upon the rule of law, shouldn’t we at least be adhering to those same laws, otherwise we are no longer a nation. If we are no longer a nation, then we have nothing to contribute to society in the short term, and nothing to civilization in the long.

    look at the high waste, and pollution our cars are producing, a 200 mpg Porge vapor carburetor sitting in the patient office collecting dust, liquid gas does not burn, Volkswagen has a 264 mpg diesel not coming here, boycott the oil company owned auto company’s, spread the word.
    The only thing that will bring us out of this depression is free energy, hydrogen from water, have this as your debate, you can make all the hydrogen, as you drive from a tank of water, you know our space shuttles,are powered by hydrogen / oxygen made from water, tell every one not buy a new car / truck, to boycott the auto company’s, when they can’t sell their pieces of junk low mileage vehicles, they will have to bring out water to hydrogen powered vehicles, and kits to change the vehicles now that we have, just think what our world would be like with free energy. Do you want your world back? spread the word boycott the auto company’s that are destroying our world. the inventor of the water to hydrogen auto was murdered by our Democrat Government, get mad get real mad of the Democrats. Also audit all the Senator’s and representatives, they have wasted, and stole our money, make them repay all, and tax them. Do these 2 things, and the Demo rats will be finished, don’t do this and the civil war, will escalate, and the economy will collapse, get this out all over the USA. this is the only thing that will bring the economy around.put this out , and spread the word to boycott the auto company’s don’t buy a new car/ or truck. do this Trump, and we will have our dreams back again.

    America should cut all foreign aide 50% a year until we give no foreign aide to any nation. In addition our UN budget should be the same as Russia/China/France/England pay, divided by four. The next UN war should be fought by any nation accept the U.S.–we’ve already sacrificed enough of our young people/resources, let the other nations fight–they’ve sacrificed so little.

  22. mark brault says:

    The arrogance and stupidity of the state Dept. is mind boggling. Who the hell oversees these fools. Maybe it’s time to re-think their worth to American tax payers. We should have a direct say in these expenditures as it appears we cannot trust our career elected officials . Term limits have never been needed more.

    • Norman says:

      We can find funds for all the reasons sane citizens do not want but for the wall they can’t even find half that amount!! What if we said we wanted that money handled the way they want to do it? Would they all of a sudden decide to spend it on the wall? They appear to want to take care of things the people are not interested in. Just like politicians!!!

    • James Hardwick says:

      We do have a direct say in how they spend our money. It is called a vote. You keep voting these same idiots in office and they think they own this country. Vote them out. We have 545 jerks running this country and you keep putting them back in office. How about an Honesty Party? Both parties would fail. We need new honest blood.

  23. SD of AZ says:

    The USA needs to redirect that money and no funds to the nations who allow the caravans through. The obvious fact is they do not want them either. And in the past obviously the aid has been wasted if they are not helping their own people. Shut the funding down, put it into our national security for the damn wall!

    I knew he had to have something up his sleeve. The Donald would not bend over like that for the Dems. As far as the money goes, why bother? The money NEVER goes where it was intended. It goes right to the government, they take their 99.5% handling fee. Then the remaining $4 goes to the people.

    Why on Earth would they send $15B down there and not a third of that for the wall. Dems say it is a waste of money. What in God’s name is that $15B? Now THAT is a waste of money. MAGA !!!! Keep on going Mr. President. We are all with you! A good portion of us are at least. The majority of the LEGAL voters, that is.

    More swamp bottom feeders of the Higher Echelon placed by Hillary Rotten Clinton and these State Department trying to sell us out President Trump withdrawal that money they announced and use it to build the Wall . Tell the bottom feeders at the State Department that you are freezing their assets until a Federal Audit of their spending for the last 10 years.

  29. Uncle Bob says:

    The Government Sewer Hole runs Deep and Wide. They all try to give President Trump the shaft.

Drain the sewer, Build The Wall stop the Invasion of the USA. Make America Great Again Now.

I know you will do the right thing and stand for the people and country who stands with you.

Thing to do is…. Kill the deep state. All they want is bliss for them and poverty for the average American citizen. Time to hammer congress. Phone calls, letters, e mails. Every day. Don’t let up if you want to save our great country.

      • Randall Clark says:

        Well, the Dems are not going to get anything shoved through, because the president said, he will veto everything they propose, unless border wall funding goes with it!!!

Use the drug money from the drug Lord for the WALL and who in hell has the right to send our tax money to a foreign country. bring our military home to defend and build the wall and increase their salaries instead to other countries. Wake up Dem. or you or your daughters may suffer for your mistakes.

  43. Is the State Department infected with Demorat/liberal/progressive sympathizers?
    I demand my tax money be better spent and build the wall. My ancestors fought and died to throw off the same type of leaders in the country they are leaving. Are they too chicken to fight for their rights in their home country? Obviously so.
    I wonder if those State Department cluster-fxxxs would decide that way if I had my ancient 94 Winchester aimed at their ugly mush-heads.

  44. Thunderman says:

    I don’t think we have the whole story on this and time will tell. Trump is no fool when it comes to this type of giveaway and I would bet there are some pretty heavy strings attached if this deal is for real. I for one will be very pissed to find out that this is nothing more than a free lunch to our southern neighbors.
    Foreign aid has proven to be like throwing money into a black hole and third world nations become dependent on U.S. foreign aid.
    It also props up dictators or corrupt governments that funnel away American taxpayer cash to pay for their own lavish lifestyles.

    The only way I would see President Trump agreeing to such a package would be only after the Wall is built. We have been down this road before and illegal immagration has only increased.

While we get to live with the murderers and rapists and diseases . All while the idiots in Washington live behind walls . And I say it’s time to rise our heads . Support Our President as he is the only who is working for us .

  51. Eric Granberg says:

    I am going to explain this to you in small words that you should be able to understand. The wall, if it was to really be built, would cost $100 billion with inflation. And then it would be worthless without spending tens of billions more dollars in an effort to keep migrants from digging under, climbing over, or going around it. Meanwhile, if on the other hand we were to spend that money to help improve the lives of people in Central America, they would have no reason to try to get to the United States, and we would look like the Christian nation we claim to be.

    • Craig Michael Vandertie says:

We have over 60 million of them in America . 59 % of them are on food stamps and welfare . in 2014 we spent 2.4 trillion dollars so they could pop out their babies in our soil. Build the wall and shoot whatever crawls under. All while the working class people of America are being worked to death . Apparently you don’t know history . Our people worked and died for all of us and created this America so we could actually have an American dream . My dream is not to support those who will not fight for their own . Those who come the right way get to join not take over and demand .

    • Sherry says:

      Eric, in small words so you can understand. IF you might think there is corruption here in the USA x’s that many times over. Corruption is a state of mind there. That’s the way they govern. That’s there way of life there. You can’t fix corruption in these central and South American countries.

  53. Helen McChesney says:

    • River Song says:

      Actually, the story goes, “If you give a man a fish, he eats for one day. If you teach the a man how to fish, he eats for a lifetime.” But I totally get the analogies remain the same! It’s called self reliance and taking personal responsibility!

    When are these political A holes going to start doing what the people want? Are they purposely trying to start a civil war? Because that is how it seems to me.

    • Deb says:

      The A holes are trying to completely destroy America and a civil war is one way to do it. If it’s bad enough, a civil war could annihilate a country. Ours was almost destroyed by civil war in the 1800’s.
