    US Corps of Engineers jetties built on US coastal lines causing erosion and weakening of coastal ones and destroying homes.


    This is happening around our entire coast lines and it’s not mother nature

    Homes further inland that might not even being effected for decades are being forced to pay for extra flood insurance. I’ve noticed more television adds on this because I see FEMA on the screen in the lower right corner and wondered if FEMA is into the Insurance sales business.
    I think the time is coming you will pay the federal Government for house insurance and they will be examining your home soon. Probably have to hire another 4000 IRS workers and take the funds one way or another.

    “On July 6, 2012, President Obama signed the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 extending the National Flood Insurance Program’s authority through September 30, 2017. Guidance on the NFIP implementation of this authority will be provided in future bulletins.”

    We know the federal govt would be the most expensive insurance plan available, when they wipe out private insurers.

    Administration moves $500M in Palestinian aid, as agencies scramble to delay furloughs

    As federal agencies scramble to avert or delay sequester-tied furloughs, the Obama administration continues to spend millions of dollars on foreign aid to the Palestinians – and seek millions more, despite past efforts by Congress to freeze the money.

    The State Department confirmed this month the administration has moved forward with $500 million in aid, and is trying to secure another $200 million from Congress. Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says the aid is important, because an “economically viable Palestinian Authority” would help regional peace and security.

    The administration confirmed the transfers as President Obama, along with Secretary of State John Kerry, toured the Middle East last week. Obama met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, as well as top Israeli officials.

    Doing his part in the sequester , the president saved money on stamps and personally hand delivered the foreign aid checks to the middle east .
