Obama Admin Slashed Bomb Prevention Budget by 45%

Why do we have to read this in a foreign newspaper to find it out?  
Sorry, I know the anwer, but it really ticks me off.  I heard about this on Rush's show and he said that this cut was not a result of the sequester.

According to the UK Mail Online:

Obama administration has SLASHED budget for domestic bombing prevention by 45 per cent, says former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary

  • $20 million budget under Bush became $11 million under Obama

  • Both administrations neglected domestic bombing prevention, devoting a tiny fraction of the $1 billion earmarked for IED prevention overseas

  • Obama issued a lengthy 'National Policy for Countering Improvised Explosive Devices' in February but a spokesman won't say if it failed

Barack Obama's administration has cut the budget nearly in half for preventing domestic bombings, MailOnline can reveal. 
Under President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security had $20 million allocated for preventing the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by terrorists working inside the United States. The current White House has cut that funding down to $11 million.
That assessment comes from Robert Liscouski, a former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15 that killed three Americans and injured at least 173 others. 
He told MailOnline that the Obama-era DHS is, on the whole, about as well-positioned as it was during the Bush administration to handle the aftermath of the April 15 bombings in Boston, 'but the Obama administration has continued to cut the budget for offices such as the Office for Bombing Prevention from $20 million started under Bush, to $11 million today.'

  1. And some of obama's vacations have cost more than the entire 20 mil.

    1. Well, he had to get the money from somewhere, right? It's all prioritizing what's important.

  2. The boy king and the merry band of college professors he's surrounded himself with has made nice to all of the radical Mooselimb groups. So, this makes us much safer by giving the impression we love everyone and are no longer "evil".

    This should work ... right?

    1. Right, Odie. Now they LOVE to LAUGH at us for how weak Mr. Obama has made us.

  3. Why do we put up with this? Why do we put up with us taxpayers paying Michelle Obama to fly around like she's holding a political office? Are there any limits to the O'Trauma's expenses? Can we invoke "sequester" on HER spending?

    This is DISGUSTING! Our "dear leaders Bracak and Mochelle" will applaud when a gay person announces their sexuality to the world...but remain silent when someone who doesn't agree with hyper-Liberal policies does something that doesn't help the Obama's meaningless, mediocre presidency.

    1. There are many Americans who don't have any idea what's going on in this country. The MSM doesn't tell the truth...they are the lap dogs of the Obama Administration. It is disgusting.
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I hope you'll be back.
