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.

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.

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
