Obama drains $500M From Zika response to U.N. Climate Fund
Just another glowing example of why so many Americans are convinced that their so-called "President" hates them as well as the nation he is supposed to be serving and protecting.
He takes money from a possible public health threat and gives it to the UN to be determined as to how to handle climate change issues. Really?
Although there are many who believe the Zika virus scare is a hoax, it is definitely a threat to a pregnant woman's unborn child.
There are also many who believe that the entire Climate Change issue is a false narrative designed to impose control over individual lives as well as to scam billion of dollars for nefarious UN purposes.
Well, let's not confuse keeping our environment clean with true climate change. We can take care of our planet by tending the soils and all flora properly. We can also attempt to keep the air cleaner reasonably and economically. If or when we develop alternative sources of "clean" energy with reliable delivery systems on a widespread basis, we will do so. But we are not there yet.
Humans have no control over the earth's climate. The sun is the driver of that as well as earth wobbles which change the length of the seasons and impact temperatures. Changes in polar ice appeared to have no relationship to the wobble -- only changes in water on land. Dry years in Eurasia, for example, corresponded to eastward swings, while wet years corresponded to westward swings.
Never mind any facts. The brutal truth is that man made Climate Change appears more and more to be a red herring designed to create slush funds for many reasons other than for the benefit of the people.

In February, President Obama said we should not “panic over Zika.”
At the same time, he asked Congress for $1.8 billion in funding for the resources to combat the Zika virus, the pathogen spreading rapidly through the Americas that can cause birth defects and neurological problems. In a rare display of fiscal restraint, Congress granted $622 million (mainly from unused Ebola response money).
However, as negotiations continue for even more Zika funding between these two branches of government, it seems that $500 million of those taxpayer dollars initially allotted now sits in the coffers of the United Nations.
The Obama administration siphoned $500 million that could have gone toward combating the Zika virus into a United Nations effort aimed at mitigating climate change.As a reminder, that $500 million is the first installment of $3 billion that Obama agreed to turn over as part of the UN Paris climate conference deal.
Sen. James Lankford (R., Okla.) wrote in an op-ed published in the Daily Signal that the Senate last year granted Obama the authority to pay for a response to Zika, but his administration chose instead to allocate those funds toward the U.N.’s Green Climate Fund.
Let’s do a little risk assessment to determine if that money was well spent!
Today’s Zika news includes the following:
Zika has blanketed three-quarters of Puerto Rico over the past six months,and health authorities expect it to keep spreading now that it is prime mosquito season. It is estimate that one-quarter of the island’s population will be infected by the time that season is over.Today’s climate change/global warming news:
There are currently 189 recorded cases of the Zika virus in New York State, including one just reported in the state capital of Albany.
In Jamaica, all pregnant women are to be tested for the virus.
Weather observers misread wind speeds, skewing a major hazards database.Today’s United Nations news completes the data set: Anders Kompass, who worked as director of field operations at the UN human rights office, has resigned after the organization did not hold senior officials accountable for sexual abuses of children by the organization’s workers.
Lake Chad’s shrinkage, once tied to the effects of recent global warming, has been known since 1899 and is related to farming and irrigation practices.
Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude E. Walker has withdrawn his subpoena of the Competitive Enterprise Institute after a rash of criticism over his investigation into climate change dissenters.
Clearly, Zika is the larger threat to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in this country than climate change.
Therefore, given Obama’s standard calculations, there should be little surprise that American money is being diverted to fund corrupt, abusive, foreign bureaucrats.
Republican lawmakers introduced legislation in May to block the Obama administration’s funding of last year’s Paris climate deal. Perhaps the Republicans in Congress can stop their Trump-oriented hysteria long enough to get this bill the votes it needs for passage?
Or maybe the Republicans could get creative and divert the monies from Obama’s travel funds to Zika? Surely the amount available will be enough to wipe the disease off the face of the Earth!
What is the difference between Obama and a mosquito? One is a flying bloodsucker, and the other is an insect.
