At the Last Minute, Obama Flushes $500,000,000.00 of Our Money Down “Green Climate Fund”

As the last days of this debacle wind down, Obama has been delivering his final kicks to our teeth — and to our bank accounts:

Obama’s State Department, with just hours to go until it is overhauled by the incoming administration, announced Tuesday a half-a-billion-dollar contribution to the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund.

“The Green Climate Fund is a critical tool that helps catalyze billions of dollars in public and private investment in countries dealing not only with the challenges of climate change, but the immense economic opportunities that are embedded in the transition to a lower carbon economy,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said at a Tuesday press briefing, according to the Washington Post.

That is, our money was thrown at other countries, in the futile hope that they will use it to improve the weather.

Converting the money into $1 bills, piling it up in a mound several stories high, and lighting it on fire would have been a vastly better use of it. That might have opened a few eyes to a far more serious threat than the ever-changing climate — our ever-growing and ever more wasteful government.

Obama had already thrown another $500 million at this foolish fund, and had pledged a total of $3 billion. Wasting money is easy when it is other people slaving away to create the wealth it represents.

If Trump puts a stop to this insanity as promised, that alone will make him a vast improvement on Obama.

On tips from Steve A and Mr. Freemarket.

    You know, for any criminal actions she may have committed, past, present, or future….

    I believe I hear sobbing coming from the group that loves Obama. They would be those on the left.
