It's all your money: US aiding business start-ups -- for illegal aliens

Read the fine print on the Small Business Administration’s website, and you’ll find that the agency does not provide the funds to “start or grow” a small business – the engine of the American economy, providing roughly three-quarters of all new jobs. Rather, the SBA provides offers loan guarantees to the banks and lenders that do provide seed money.

So it might come as a surprise to American entrepreneurs that there is at least one group to whom the federal government is providing direct assistance for business start-ups: illegal aliens. In fact, these recipients of your taxpayer funds fall into an even more restricted category: illegal aliens who have been deported back to their native land.

As part of an ongoing project he calls The Waste Report, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has called attention to these outlays, which are made by an obscure federal agency called the Inter-American Foundation (IAF).

Housed in a non-descript building a few blocks from the White House, IAF is spending up to $50,000 annually to help Salvadorans sent back to El Salvador to “reintegrate” into their communities, under the idea that doing so will make them less likely to seek to return to the United States.

This is no surprise. After all, it's all about votes - which keeps their power, and their money, growing.

Would anyone be shocked by this? Our money is going to everyone except for the needs of the American CITIZENS. Look at the VA, our roads and bridges and no social security increases for the elderly. And these idiots wonder why Trump is so popular.

Obama loves the illegals.

Obumbum 'loves' ANYTHING that harms Our America!  

How much money is spent for the salaries of the "government workers" at the IAF?  Isn't it wonderful how obummer has created jobs.........all by his little ole lonesome, to employees at IAF and to Salvadorans.  $50,000 is more than my yearly income.  Maybe he could send me some of that money and I promise  never to immigrate to El Salvador illegally.  p.s. I realize that this is just a drop in the bucket of what obummer and his henchmen have given away of our tax money, but the reason for it is what galls me.

A drop here, a drop there...  In a short time it's a FLOOD!  If we could get all of the self-serving government employees OUT, and the needed ones replaced with HONEST ones, the national debt could be whittled down in short order.  Not paid off...  Obumbum made that impossible.  But REDUCED.  I never heard of 'IAF' until this very moment.  He keeps creating new agencies, and reducing our Military.  I hope he doesn't declare Martial Law between now and next January.  Because if he DOES, he'll call himself 'Dictator For Life'.

I don't think his life would be very long in that case!

Norma,

Also Obama just voted himself, and all past Presidents, an 18% pay raise.

Wikipedia reports:"The IAF is an independent agency of the US gov. that funds dev. projects undertaken by grassroots groups and nongov. organ. in Latin America and the Caribbean. It was created through the Foreign Assist. Act of 1969 as an experimental alternative to traditional foreign assist. that operates gov.-to-gov on a much larger scale. The IAF receives its funds through annual allocations by Congress and from the Social Progress Trust Fund adm. by the Inter-American Dev. Bank and consist. of payments on US gov. loans extended under the Alliance for Progress to various Latin American and Caribbean gov's.Since beginn.operations in 1972, the IAF has awarded 4,920 grants worth more than $665 million.  IAF is gov. by a board of dir. appointed by the president of the U.S. & confirmed by the US senate.  One job posted started at $ 58,.....something.  Wonder what the Chief Executive officer Robert N. Kaplan makes?  Google it.  Here we have been fussing about foreign aid all these years and little we knew that there these little known agencies sucking up our taxes.  How many other "agencies" are there that we don't know about?  "Grants".........what a wonderful word for free money.

This comes as a surprise????  ...............to whom?

Nothing for Americans....!!! Obama steals from  the middle class and poor in order to fund a new voting group who are accountable to the demon rats

The Small Business Administration has been a "Money Pit" since the 60's.  Corruption is it's middle name. During my time, the Administrator had to resign, because he owned Pornography Businesses.(Sandoval).  I sent in enough money to support a whole other family, in style, for a year.    My money will either go to Dead-Beat Parasites, Bail-Outs of Puerto Rico, or God knows what else.    I want to see in my Lifetime the Doors of the IRS padded and locked, a Tax Rate,  that every single person has to pay something into, and these Depts of Robbery closed.     Close all "Alpha-Bet" Depts day One.     We'd be out of Debt in no time.  Vote Trump, a man who will tackle it.

ALERT ALERT

Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
