President Joe Biden’s massive $6 trillion budget proposal for the 2022 fiscal year includes hundreds of millions of dollars in restored aid to the Palestinians, some of which President Donald Trump had suspended over concerns about Palestinian support for terror.

In a statement Friday, the State Department noted:

The budget request funds assistance programs and humanitarian aid for Palestinians, including support for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). The United States will maintain steadfast support for Israel as the Administration renews relations with Palestinian leadership, restores economic and humanitarian assistance for Palestinians, and works to advance freedom, prosperity, and security for the Israeli and Palestinian people alike.

The precise amount of funding was unclear, but Secretary of State Tony Blinken said last week in a visit to the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership in Ramallah that the U.S. is in the process of sending $360 million in aid to the Palestinians.

Trump had cut aid to UNRWA over concerns that it fosters anti-Israel propaganda, and had also cut U.S. funding to the PA because of its “pay to slay” policy of giving stipends to Palestinian terrorists in Israeli jail or to the families of dead terrorists. The latter funding is prohibited by U.S. law under the Taylor Force Act of 2018; the Times of Israel reports that the PA may try to adjust its program of terrorist stipends so it does not conflict with the U.S. law, though it is not clear exactly how. The funding to UNRWA is under executive discretion and Biden had promised to restore it before the recent war broke out.

Biden has also promised to re-open a U.S. consular in Jerusalem specifically to cater to the Palestinians, currently dealt with by the embassy, and may also re-open the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in Washington, DC, which was shut by Trump after the Palestinians took Israel to the International Criminal Court, a violation of conditions set down in U.S. law.

Much of the new aid will be directed toward rebuilding parts of Gaza damaged in the recent war with Israel, though it is not clear how to prevent that funding from flowing through the hands of the terrorist group Hamas, which rules the territory. Much funding will be handled by USAID Director Samantha Power, an official notorious for her past hostility to Israel.

Arizona Audit

Biden Uses Department Of Justice In Attempt To Shutdown Ballot Audit

Published

on

The Attorney General of Arizona Mark Brinovich sent a letter to US Attorney General Merrick B. Garland after his comments about the Arizona ballot audit.

“Late last week, you made troubling comments about the ongoing efforts in states to censure election integrity. Your statement displayed an alarming disdain for state sovereignty,” wrote Brinovich.

Previously, Garland announced that the Justice Department will scrutinize election audits to make sure they “abide by federal requirement.” Garland said that the audits are based on disinformation and that they are using “abnormal post-election audit methodologies that may put the integrity of the voting process at risk and undermine public confidence in our democracy.”

That is disinformation, a judge is overseeing the audit and approved of the method used to conduct the audit.

In his letter, Brnovich noted that the State’s Senate has the authority to conduct any review is wishes.

“My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing and will not tolerate any effort to undermine or interfere with our State Senate’s audit to reassure Arizonans of the accuracy of our elections,” Brnovich wrote.

“We stand ready to defend federalism and state sovereignty against any partisan attacks or federal overreach. … Arizona will not sit back and let the Biden administration abuse its authority, refuse to uphold laws, or attempt to commandeer our state’s sovereignty.”

The hand count review of ballots is almost done, meanwhile Republicans in Fulton County, Georgia are preparing a review of all absentee ballots cast in the November election. Just like in Arizona, auditors are working with the courts to put an accurate audit method together.

Biden amends Trump-era executive order prohibiting investments in certain Chinese companies

Published

on

President Biden has issued an executive order amending a Trump-era order that prohibits investments in some Chinese companies.

“Today, President Biden signed an Executive Order (E.O.) to further address the ongoing national emergency declared in E.O. 13959 of November 12, 2020 with respect to the threat posed by the military-industrial complex of the People’s Republic of China (PRC),” according to a White House fact sheet

“President Biden also expanded the scope of this national emergency by finding that the use of Chinese surveillance technology outside the PRC, as well as the development or use of Chinese surveillance technology to facilitate repression or serious human rights abuses, constitute unusual and extraordinary threats. This E.O. allows the United States to prohibit – in a targeted and scoped manner – U.S. investments in Chinese companies that undermine the security or democratic values of the United States and our allies,” the White House said.

There are 59 entities listed in the order’s annex that are subject to the order’s prohibitions.

“We know for a fact that Wall Street is helping to finance the Chinese Communist Party’s effort to weaken and ultimately replace American leadership,” Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said in a statement. “The story of the past two decades has been America’s unwillingness to confront Beijing’s exploitation of our legal, political, and financial systems. While the administration updated the Trump-era policy in important ways, I am very concerned that President Biden’s Treasury Department is too closely aligned with Wall Street to take the actions necessary to prevent American savings from being used to fund the Chinese Communist Party.”
