As a tax paying citizen, I'm more upset with how the federal government spends all together. This is one nice example, but to be honest, there are a so many flaws in their procurement process its truly disgusting when you begin to look at the money they spend (and waste) each year....If I go $14 trillion into debt my credit score will be -3948586767, when the federal government goes into that debt they still carry a AAA rating...Hmmmm???


Hopefully, we are getting something in return, something that we're getting back under the table....Oil? Fine....


Now it's time to enjoy the violent storms that are rolling through the Chicagoland area right now........

If you had any idea what you were talking about I might argue the facts with you. But no matter what the American is always wrong. Your kidding right? I wouldnt be suprised if what ever country you call home recieves/has recieved aid from the US, nearly the whole world does. Juging by your insolence and complete lack of supporting evidence I'd say your English(former english property even?) or Asian it's hard to tell what kind of snark you give through reading what you type.

I am beyond horrified by this report. I'm going to tell everyone I know about this!!

Does anyone else feel like they are living in an insane asylum? Yes, let's send hundreds of millions of dollars to random countries where people want to kill us while we stop sending social security checks to people that have already paid into it! Are you freaking kidding me right now?

STOP IT WASHINGTON.

I think this is the moment when Americans need to realize that their government is anything, but for the people. Although, I'm certain one can argue that there have already been plentiful moments beforehand. I'm simply astonished that most Americans don't care or don't know. They fear their government.

Indeed... this so called 'aid' is usually there to enslave another country. The ruling elite of said country gets very rich due to these arrangements, while the country itself amasses a huge debt over it, since most of that money is a loan, not a gift.

Of course there are other options for those who run the country: If they refuse to take the 'aid', they are either removed through assassination or a change of government (i.e. a democratic elected government gets replaced by a fascist dictator who is more than happy to sell out his countrymen to the US) because it supports communism, terrorism, has WMDs or whatnot. Sounds familiar?
If that doesn't work either, like in Iraq, the next step is 'bringing democracy' to that country, which means a military invasion, murder of civilians and the installation of a puppet regime.

So, I'd say there is no need for outrage... at least not about wasted money.

I am a racist, and make no apologies for it. I do not treat other races better or worse than my own however there is a distinction between all races. There are races that have fell into disrepair and as a generational thing have taken the path of least resistance, thus their reward is poverty and ignorance. Unless we stop political correctness and base our foundations on moral foundations, and not political ones, we will continue to tear this country apart with technicalities of law. Each man should stand up and be accountable and work. The necessities of life are not free, and socalism has proved to be a temporary benefit quickly decending into tyrany and poverty as the workers are used to support the non-workers. Once the foundation of personal acheivment is traded for a universal feel-good for all the loafers, there will be no incentive to do anything more than the minimum, thus savings and reserves will be non-existant, and ripe for downfall and anarchy.

Millions - though a large amount - is pocket change compared to what banks are receiving from our FedReserve and untimately - us. Original Post.

The first ever GAO (Government Accountability Office) audit of the Federal Reserve was carried out in the past few months due to the Ron Paul, Alan Grayson Amendment to the Dodd-Frank bill, which passed last year. Jim DeMint, a Republican Senator, and Bernie Sanders, an independent Senator, led the charge for a Federal Reserve audit in the Senate, but watered down the original language of the house bill (HR1207), so that a complete audit would not be carried out. Ben Bernanke (pictured to the left), Alan Greenspan, and various other bankers vehemently opposed the audit and lied to Congress about the effects an audit would have on markets. Nevertheless, the results of the first audit in the Federal Reserve’s nearly 100 year history were posted on Senator Sander’s webpage earlier this morning. sanders.senate.gov...)" target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow">Sanders' article

What was revealed in the audit was startling: $16,000,000,000,000.00 (TRILLION) had been secretly given out to US banks and corporations and foreign banks everywhere from France to Scotland. From the period between December 2007 and June 2010, the Federal Reserve had secretly bailed out many of the world’s banks, corporations, and governments. The Federal Reserve likes to refer to these secret bailouts as an all-inclusive loan program, but virtually none of the money has been returned and it was loaned out at 0% interest. Why the Federal Reserve had never been public about this or even informed the United States Congress about the $16 trillion dollar bailout is obvious — the American public would have been outraged to find out that the Federal Reserve bailed out foreign banks while Americans were struggling to find jobs.

“This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you’re-on-your-own individualism for everyone else.” – Bernie Sanders(I-VT)


The list of institutions that received the most money from the Federal Reserve can be found on page 131 of the GAO Audit and are as follows..

Citigroup: $2.5 trillion ($2,500,000,000,000)

Morgan Stanley: $2.04 trillion ($2,040,000,000,000)

Merrill Lynch: $1.949 trillion ($1,949,000,000,000)

Bank of America: $1.344 trillion ($1,344,000,000,000)

Barclays PLC (United Kingdom): $868 billion ($868,000,000,000)

Bear Sterns: $853 billion ($853,000,000,000)

Goldman Sachs: $814 billion ($814,000,000,000)

Royal Bank of Scotland (UK): $541 billion ($541,000,000,000)

JP Morgan Chase: $391 billion ($391,000,000,000)

Deutsche Bank (Germany): $354 billion ($354,000,000,000)

UBS (Switzerland): $287 billion ($287,000,000,000)

Credit Suisse (Switzerland): $262 billion ($262,000,000,000)

Lehman Brothers: $183 billion ($183,000,000,000)

Bank of Scotland (United Kingdom): $181 billion ($181,000,000,000)

BNP Paribas (France): $175 billion ($175,000,000,000)

and many many more including banks in Belgium of all places

In looking at the bigger picture.

Computers and the internet are vital to the intelligence community and in this case could be used to actually make us safer in the long run.

Providing computers and internet service to these mosques also allows the CIA and their analysts to monitor all information going to/from these mosques which is the way in which the intelligence community functions.

Information that could potentially be linked to radicals and/or extremists who often times attract new members at mosques and could prevent another 911 like attack.

Plain and Simple.


Star for you -- I like your thinking.

I agree!! bring home the troops and then arrest GWB,Dick Cheney, Condi Rice,Rummy and everyone that had anything to do with starting a war of conquest.If Iraq had a main export of kumquats we would have let Saddam do whatever he wanted to.They lied to the American Public and after they did that they ruined the economy. Great job there Dubya! a BILLION DOLLARS A DAY!!! think maybe that had something to do with the debt???

Lol what a joke...

I always disliked how religion seems to always be exempt from taxes,and usually gets money rather than have to pay it.
What does it achieve exactly? so a religion can continue to brainwash people?
What has religion benefited the world in general?
When has religion ever produced peace in the world?

But,this kind of action from America doesnt surpise me one bit to be honest,i actually now expect to hear about things like this.I get and understand the notion of American trying to "build relationships" with other countrys by doing this kind of thing,but with money? how about stop killing people and you might have a legit relationship with other countrys that dont follow you because your a superpower,or should i say a collapsing superpower.From all the MSM i see though,arent we meant hate muslims? thats all i keep seing,thats who they keep blaming these "terrorist attacks" on,yet they are helping to refurbish religious establishments overseas? ok...

Not to mention the tough time people are gradually having with the cost of living. It isnt the worst in history,but it could and probably will get worse.But wheres the line? where and when is the line going to be drawn in the sand,or are we just going to take it and just be good little workers as usual?

In my opinion,if 9/11 wasnt a wake up call for america,then i barely see how this could be.It was a eye opener for me,thats for sure,but for all the wrong reasons obviously.That made me realize how screwed up things are and are going to become if the people dont address these obvious problems in the system.

This world that is being created around us is a fantasy or fraud,whatever you want to call it.The moneys fake,the system doesnt benefit the people,the policys are illogical and/or double standards,the wars are unjustified and not proved,major media is controlled by a few,religions are tax exempt whilst everyone else pays more,a stock market system that seems to have a mind of its own,or is being controlled by a few,low class drugs are the most illegal and vice versa,the list literally goes on...

It is common practice to compensate victims of crime. While Osama Bin Laden was the first suspect for 9/11, he is not the prime suspect. There has been a massive crime committed not just in the Middle East, but on US soil as well. There have been many life lost and infrastructure destroyed all round. While America chooses to fail to address these war crimes it is contributing further to these ongoing illegalities.

What a well made propaganda. Obviously, very effective?

#1
So, because US is trying to prevent Egypt, a strategic US ally from drowning in there own faeces, they're wasting tax payers money? Why? Because this will among thousands of other buildings, also save a couple of local mosques - this is what causes so called "lot of outrage this afternoon" lol.

#2
Then, they found some (allegedly Egyptian) wren... woman who calls herself "former Muslim" to talk about how she's getting death threats from terrorists because US is "showing its weakness" by restoring the sewer system of her own home country........ I'd need boots for this one because B.S. is just knee deep. Apparently, US embassy in Egypt was not showing weakness when it helped her - as far as she is concerned, rest of the Egypt can drown in crap.

#3 Internet in some terrorist-dwelling mud-pile
The Mosque in Mali which now allegedly has internet access (apparently, controlled by CIA! lol) is 99% Great Mosque of Djenné, I'm only 99% sure because the anchorman continently left out name of the mosque and just called it "an ancient mosque"... pffft!! Anywho, it is a very old and very famous piece of art which is also a world heritage site of UNESCO and a largest mud building in the world. Mali has nothing to do with global terrorism, no terrorist was ever Malian in all history of global terrorism. It was a simple diplomatic gift by the local ambassador - all but extremely poor countries do these kinds of things.

As far as Cyprus goes, Mosques were only one fraction of entire restoration plan through USAID funds. Many things were restored/repaired, mostly historical and cultural heritages. If you are really interested in where your money went, you can visit cyprus.usembassy.gov... any time rather than wasting your nerves and time on blatant TV propaganda.

What they're doing is called diplomacy and these restoration works are always far, far, far cheaper than depleted uranium shells. You can be certain that US is not paying anyone's free lunch, never has and never will.

Yeah cause we should be sending money to Egypt among a host of other countries where the people hates us when we can't even pay our own debts... Sigh!
Yeah all the Muslims love us and want to be our friend... Bigger sigh... Do you people ever get the feeling you need to pinch yourself to see if you are actually living in reality?

Speaking of feces as your post mentions I'd say that is about sums it up...

The really sad unfortunate thing, you as an American free culture, has promoted the 'if theres a blame, theres a claim' culture,
This is now a big thing in my country thanks to your despicable money grabbing lawyers/soliciters.
I despise your free world thinking, you all think that (AS IN USA citizens,) that you are the best thing since sliced bread...I beg to differ... everytime you trip over a curb ....blame and claim....
We in the UK still have the balls to call an accident, an accident.(or at least we did....we are now encouraged to call it a negligent incident.)
I don't hate Yanks, i hate the puppet masters that show and tell you what to think!!!
When was the last time you actually realized what is happening in this world?
