Report: Obama Gave $221 Million to Palestinians in Last Hours

The Associated Press reported Monday that former President Barack Obama released $221 million in U.S. funding for the Palestinian Authority on the morning of Friday, January 20 — just hours before he was to leave office.

The AP details:

A State Department official and several congressional aides say the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning, just before Donald Trump became president.

More than $227 million in foreign affairs funding was released at the time, including $4 million for climate change programs and $1.25 million for U.N. organizations.

At least two GOP lawmakers had placed holds on the Palestinian funds. Congressional holds are generally respected by the executive branch but are not legally binding.

This was not the first time Obama had granted funding to the Palestinian Authority despite Congress’s wishes. In 2012, for example, he unblocked nearly $200 million that had been frozen in response to Palestinians’ unilateral actions at the United Nations, using a legal waiver included in the Palestinian Accountability Act.

    First I’ve heard of this monstrosity. Where’s all the outrage, and protests when we hear something like this? This is just disgusting!

  • William R. Sullens says:

    Just goes to show you that Obama was an underhanded crook from the very beginning and all the way to the very last minute he was in office. Glad to be rid of him as POTUS and have a real American in as POTUS now by the name of Donald Trump. I can only hope Trump can stop the Palestinian contribution and use it for the good of America instead of its enemies.

  • Gale says:

    he is by far the most evil, disgusting sob that’s ever stepped foot in d.c.

  • cathylovesyou says:

    Jewish liberals Voted for Obama regardless of his hate for them. They ignored his treatment toward Israel and American Jews as well as the fact he is a Muslim. ON the way out the other day he gave Palestine 221 million to spite Bibi and Trump. Eventually Jews have to give up the Ghost.

  • snowyriver says:

    Right up to the last minute, Obama was trying to destroy America.

  • cae973 says:

    He gave our taxpayer money to a known terrorist organization and did it while he was still president..that makes it High Treason punishable by death!

  • Luke says:

    Well the congress has yet to block the money for terrorist from the cleric barack husein obumba. What is the matter with these people giving hard earned tax payer money to our sworn enemies. We should storm congress and remove everyone sitting on their thumbs allowing this money to be stolen from us to go to terrorist to buy weapons

  • Rick D. says:

    Un-F***ing believable!! What a despicable POTUS we’ve had to put up with for the past 8 years. This was strictly a spiteful act by a wienie of a man who is vindictive, resentful, and will go to any lengths ti undermine Mr. Trump.

    1. snowyriver says:

      He is trying to destroy America as we know it.. and he almost has done so.. only time will tell.

  • Chris says:

    Obama is a scum bag. He pulls this hours before he leaves office. His antisemitic and hatred for Israel will forever be his legacy. Our best ally in the Middle East has been screwed over by this little man could of forever damaged our relationship but for Israel’s prime ministers believe in Trump and his promise to stand behind his country. F/U Obama may you burn in hell

  • Patriot1955 says:

    I am glad that piece of sxxt president is gone

  • wmagg says:

    If true, this is nothing less than an overt act of TREASON
    and an outright support of terrorism against America and it’s allies.
    the time has come to hunt down this worthless POS and bring him justice. If the government will not do it and Trump will not do it then it is up to the patriots of this nation to stand and defend both this nation and it’s allies

  • says:

    He has been even more despicable than I thought!!!!!!

  • Tiger says:

    And who is surprised? Why didn’t Congress stop that and the money to Climate Change committee at the UN? How is it a Lame Duck transferred out terrorists from Gitmo and did this under the noses of Congress? Who allowed it? How is it possible and if this is a presidents right to do as he pleases then the Executive Branch is due an enema.

    What happened? He gave money to Gaza as Hamas was attacking Israel this last war, the world stunned. The man needs to be brought to justice for Treason, the Gitmo releases, Manning and then the terrorist bomber Pardon more than enough.

  • KayO says:

    All funding the Fabian Socialist’s and communist agendas. I want my share of the money back.

  • Climax says:

    Deliver the money in a lead case about half way across the Atlantic where it slips off the boat! Woops, your money is down there.

  • Climax says:

    Just look at the picture and determine the nose up smug attitude as Obama wallows in his treachery to the USA.

    1. Anouk says:

      The picture above shows an arrogant narcissist SOB who did everything in his power to destroy the America he hates.

  • itsfun says:

    Just another back stab to Israel by Obama.

  • Larry says:


  • Webb says:

    Proof Obama had no Love for Israel…
    Our Ally in the Middle East that supports America which had been Shunned these last eight years…
    Support Israel…

  • Chuck says:

    This is nothing more than a sop to his muslime friends. He is a muslime and his every act confirms his allegiance to Islam and not to America. My question is why cannot we now stop the transfer of these funds or demand their return? Same with the mega bucks given to Iran for hostages. These acts are an egregious display of thumbing his nose at the American people and Congress. Where did this money come from in the first place? Congress had to appropriate it and put into some agency that controlled it. This type of slight of hand must stop.
    Further, we should demand all foreign aid be stopped. It is time the hundred thirty or so nations getting handouts from us in one form or another (Mexico, for example) to realize they can no longer depend on Uncle Sugar to waste money for the aggrandizement of their crooked politicians and/or dictators.

  • Athanasios1 says:

    So far fascist leftists have killed bout 4-5 police officers and about 4 citizens; ironically in sanctuary cities. This is not counting their Islamic allies which have killed about 3,200 counting 9/11 and Islamic attacks including Fort Hood and elsewhere. The real question to us civilized and conservative citizens is, “When will we start killing them?” This response is needed, since Trump is backing down from his promises to protect and defend citizens from illegal aliens, Moslem hate groups and fascist Communists disguised as Democrats.

  • nokabosh says:

    Colleges will pay Obama to brainwash students on how to overthrow the gov’t. And when he’s not doing that he will be agitating in repub states to gerrymander district lines to get repubs out of office.

  • nokabosh says:

    Obama has committed treasonous acts. Congress should strip him of his pension and security detail.

  • nokabosh says:

    Guess they needed the money to build more rocket launch sites and tunnels. Then there’s the $1.5 B to Iran for building the weapons for the Palestines to use against Israel. With friends like Obama who needs enemies.

  • William Meekins says:

    Arrest him for treason. Isn’t it a crime for a government official to fund terrorists?

    1. Mike Thomas says:

      Where was Congress? L.O.L. They all need to be tried for Treason!

    2. ABO says:

      The US Constitution refers to it as “aiding and abetting an enemy”.

    3. Shannon Carr says:

      Hollywood should have provided those funds!

  • roy paul shields says:

    The muslim traitor Obama was and is an enemy of America; we better keep track of him as he will continue to be an enemy and danger to America.

    1. ABO says:

      I have said for many years now that the most serious threat this Nation faces is Barack Hussein Obama.

  • James Maxwell says:

    I want to know how he “found” $221 million dollars lying around to “give” to a
    terrorist nation and who authorized him access to that money? If it has not
    been transferred then I would suggest blocking that and the giveaway to
    the UN at the same time. This was not Obama’s money but the money
    of the American Tax Payers and we did not authorize any transfer to them
    and if Congress signed off on it they should be fired on the spot for corruption
    and violation of the will of the people immediately.

    1. nokabosh says:

      Obama doesn’t go by the rules. Re-allocating funds normally requires Congressional approval. Why would Congress ever approve funds for the PAL which is a known terrroist organization is beyond the pale in the first place.

    2. Larry says:

      I totally agree, this is treason.

    3. Retired says:

      Proving he was a traitor right up to the last minutes.

    4. Tiger says:

      How about the precious metals, gold, silver and cash he gave for the prisoners release? How about the 500 million to the UN for Climate Change this last week plus this and much more. Who gives him the authority and how can he do it without permission from Congress?

      Yes if congress signed off on this they should be reprimanded and taken down in chains but those fools don’t even know where he got the money for the prisoners. They don’t know anything and can’t and haven’t stopped anything he did. He needs to be prosecuted for crimes against the people of this country letting all those Gitmo terrorists go, 10 in one swoop. He needs a lead projectile.


    HE CAN STILL BE IMPEACHED. HE SHOULD ALSO BE CHARGED WITH TREASON. There is a long list of counts for the charges.

    1. gingergirl says:

      I agree, Marlene. We can stop ALL payments – pensions – security, etc. to this traitor! I hope Trump considers that, along with putting him in prison!

      1. MARLENE HESSLER says:

        I am not sure it has to be up to Trump. Isn’t that why we have FBI and CIA?

  • Ramon1710 . says:

    Well, with all the idiot colleges that will pay him to make speeches, I’m sure he’ll have enough to reimburse us, prior to his eventual fraud arrest and conviction.
