President Waives Restriction on Providing Funds to the Palestinian Authority

 

This nonsense has to stop!

Yesterday, President Barack Obama, waived the restriction in the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2012 that prohibits the United States from appropriating monies to the Palestinian Authority:

Presidential Memorandum — Waiver of Restriction on Providing Funds to the Palestinian Authority

MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY OF STATE

SUBJECT: Waiver of Restriction on Providing Funds to the Palestinian Authority

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 7040(b) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2012 (Division I, Public Law 112-74) (the “Act”), I hereby certify that it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of section 7040(a) of the Act, in order to provide funds appropriated to carry out Chapter 4 of Part II of the Foreign Assistance Act, as amended, to the Palestinian Authority.

You are directed to transmit this determination to the Congress, with a report pursuant to section 7040(d) of the Act, and to publish this determination in the Federal Register.

BARACK OBAMA

Just by using the phrase “national security interests” the president once again sidesteps congress and the will of the American People?

This has got to change… the process should be that the administration must show demonstrable cause to justify “national security interests.”
