Who Needs Soros When You Have A Black Budget?
Republican lawmakers are very concerned about what Obama did to our military. According to Fox News, it would seem that he set up a secret slush fund that is contributing large amounts of money to leftist groups? Why that is happening and to whom the money is being controlled by is a bit harder to explain. One of the first things they teach you in this job is to follow the money. But when it comes to a black budget controlled by the military with absolutely no oversight it becomes a bit difficult. It’s especially difficult when the program was started under a previous regime and it becomes a magnitude closer to impossible when the leader of that previous regime, Barack Obama, is actively engaging in partisan politics to disrupt the current Trump Adminsitration.
To summarize: the Obama Administration created a very sketchy program within the defense department and that program has been giving money to organizations that aren’t exactly neutral or friendly to the current Trump Administration. But GOP lawmakers are working to end that now.
The Obama administration funneled billions of dollars to activist organizations through a Department of Justice slush fund scheme, according to congressional investigators. “It’s clear partisan politics played a role in the illicit actions that were made,” Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, told Fox News. “The DOJ is the last place this should have occurred.” Findings spearheaded by the House Judiciary Committee point to a process shrouded in secrecy whereby monies were distributed to a labyrinth of nonprofit organizations involved with grass-roots activism….Lankford has introduced the Stop Settlement Slush Fund Act of 2017 while House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., submitted similar legislation in the House. “Congress must permanently end the abuses Obama’s Justice Department exploited to use settlements to funnel money to their liberal friends,” Goodlatte said in a statement.
As to just how deep this rabbit hole goes, no one is really quite sure. At least $3 billion — that’s billion with a b — have been contributed to various organizations that simply shouldn’t have received a dime. This is a rather unprecedented behavior and quite worrisome. One of the groups that were included in the fund was the National Council of La Raza, a Hispanic supremacist organization that had drawn considerable criticism from conservatives. AFF Media has reached out to them for comment. Another group is even more concerning. The National Community Reinvestment Coalition is a non-profit group known for encouraging and supporting illegal immigrants with its resources. Simply put, this has to stop.
