Still more from Obama's insane spending department

WASHINGTON, August 27, 2013 — While civilian members of the Department of Defense are being furloughed, where is our government spending our money?

How about $313 million to fund home mortgages in the West Bank?  That is not the West Bank, Illinois. That is the West Bank, Palestine.

Anytime the word “Palestine” comes up in politics, it is an almost guaranteed fight over the issue of whether that territory belongs to the mythical land of Palestine or is part of Israel.  For now that is an argument that can be totally ignored.

Because American is pouring money we don’t have. We can’t fund tours of the White House and American government workers are being furloughed to save money. 

The United States Navy just announced it was scrapping rather than repairing USS Miami because it does not have the money. 

So why is all this money going to the Middle East?

In addition to the $313 million in mortgages for the West Bank, the US Government is also guaranteeing $110 million in loans to small and medium businesses in the West Bank.

While the government should not be guaranteeing loans for any business, if it is that business should be in America owned by Americans, not in a mythical nation that hates America.

And if America is going to spend money on mortgages and business loan guarantees for other nations, does anyone think Palestine represents a good investment for America?

Not only does this area win the vote for the area most likely to be the epicenter of the next major Middle East war, it is the home of massively corrupt government officials and terrorist organizations. 

Using only history as an example, there is an overwhelming possibility that much of that money is going to end up in the bank accounts of corrupt government officials or worse, in the hands of terrorist groups. 

Real Americans have been screaming for four years about out of control government spending.  Its no great shock that the Obama Administration does not have any sympathy for those arguments. 

The real question is why this kind of insane spending is still being passed by a Republican controlled House of Representatives.

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet.

A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says.

Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC.   “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based.  Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville.  Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’  I did.”

The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown.   It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed.  Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker.

He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should.  He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
