UN Record-Breaking Aid Request For 2014: $12.9 Billion

The United Nations launched its largest humanitarian aid request ever today, asking for $12.9 billion on behalf of 500 organizations - $6.5 billion of which would address problems from the Syrian conflict. The UN is trying to persuade China, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar to contribute more (especially as the United States and Europe have been struggling with domestic economic crises), but its fundraising goals are rarely met.

The AP reports on today's announcement (emphasis mine):

The United Nations said Monday it will need nearly $13 billion in aid in 2014 to reach at least 52 million people in 17 countries, including the millions of Syrians who have been displaced by their civil war.

"This is the largest amount we've ever had to request at the start of the year," said Valerie Amos, the U.N.'s humanitarian chief. "The complexity and scale of what we are doing is rising all the time."

Give them the middle digit, they are nothing more than a pack of thieves.

If the foreign deadbeat whores and bloodsuckers who frequent the UN would drop their diplomatic immunity crying and just pay their parking tickets (which they do not do) it would put a dent in this monetary request.

I, for one, think we should send them all back home, board up the windows of the UN building, and search for a way to turn it into something useful. Salvation Army headquarters comes to mind. Any of you have other suggestions??

Slip n slide ride from the top of the building through the floors to the bottom... hows that?

Just PRINT MORE MONEY !!! That's the POTUS motto.    Doesn't matter if there's anything to back it.   Perhaps HIS BANK ACCOUNT should be backing it.    

We the people are what is backing the printing, and spending of money.  That is what the phrase "the full faith and credit of the United States "means.  It means that we the people owe all of this debt that they create, and spend, on our behalf, although we have NO input into the spending or printing of it.

Tell the creeps NO!!  We can not destroy our country by letting every moron who needs money suck up our cash!!  We need it because our economy is on the rocks and our citizens are in poverty, thanks to the administration.

Hell NO!

STARVE THE BEAST!

My message is very simple: GET AMERICA THE HELL OUT OF THE U.N.!!!!!! STOP ALL FOREIGN AID!!!! BRING "ALL" OF OUR TROOPS HOME FROM THE MIDDLE EAST!!!! COMPLETELY REPEAL OBAMACARE!!!! IMPEACH THAT COMMUNIST IMPOSTER IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!! VOTE OUT EVERY CONGRESS PERSON WHO IS DETRIMENTAL TO THE CONSTITUTION!!!     IS ANYONE LISTENING??????

I whole heartedly agree in fact I couldn't have said it better!!!!!!!!!!!!

What IS the accountability ratio of the money donated to the UN?

How VAST is the international corruption component of the UN?

The UN has lowered it's usefulness coefficient to near zero.

UN . . . . G E T  O U T  ! ! !

Sure as they want someones money. I say, cut back on the UN funds since China and other petro-countries are having a record boom.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
