Senator: Obama Steals From Zika Victims To Fund UN Climate Programs

zikaThe Obama administration has taken $500 million appropriated by Congress to fight the Zika virus to fund the United Nations Green Climate Fund, which gives foreign countries money for green energy projects.

“The threat to adults from Zika is relatively small, but the threat to pre-born children is very high,” Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Lankford wrote in an oped for The Daily Signal. “Our national priority rightly focuses on protecting the life of these young children in the womb, since each child has value, no matter their age or size.”

Lankford sharply criticized the Obama administration for using Department of State funds meant to fight infectious diseases to fund the president’s global warming agenda. Moreover, the U.N. agency Obama funded recognizes Palestine as a state — making it possibly illegal to pay into the Green Climate Fund.

“While I understand that intelligent people can disagree on the human effects on the global climate, it is hard to imagine a reason why the administration would prioritize the U.N. Green Climate Fund over protecting the American people, especially pregnant women, from the Zika virus,” Lanford wrote.

“The White House should not throw money at the U.N. while a vaccine for a virus known to cause severe, debilitating neurological birth defects is put on the back burner,” he wrote.

President Barack Obama pledged $3 billion towards the Green Climate Fund, and made the first $500 million payment in March. The move was instantly criticized by Republicans who said they did not appropriate any funds for the U.N.’s green fund.

    Obummer can pledge all the money he can imagine to tilt windmills, very little more money will go to the crooked UN green pyramid scheme in the next administration. His logic: why solve a real problem when he can torture us with the specter of climate change.

    Russell perhaps we aren’t fair .. Given the nut jobs in his administration that like to pontificate about effective yet civil population control measures is it any surprise the death of people caused by their slight of hand redirecting of funding isn’t a strategy right in their wheelhouse ?

    One of the very basic differences between a democracy and totalitarian government is in a democracy the elected official have to follow the law. In diverting the funds and in his over reach executive orders Obama is acting outside of the law. We are now much closer to having totalitarian government. This is especially true if you consider the effort to prosecute people for nothing more than expressing “politically incorrect opinions.”
