After paying ransom to Iran, Obama diverts Zika vaccine 'research' money to UN slush fund

Zika vaccine research

(NaturalNews) The Obama administration is planning to use more taxpayer dollars to fund Zika studies, because it squandered the money allocated for infectious disease research on the United Nation's bogus "climate" fund. Not only was the money misappropriated, but it was done illegally, sources say.

Now the federal government is tapping into funds intended for other taxpayer programs to research Zika, which by the way poses little threat to most people. The entire situation could easily have been avoided if Obama hadn't illegally raided the funds.

"In March, after Congress refused to approve funding for the UN's global-warming agenda — funding that is now officially illegal under federal law — Obama illegally raided the funds previously approved by Congress for use in battling infectious diseases such as Zika," Government Slaves reports.

Government: Zika virus v. climate change

"Instead of using those funds for the Zika research that Obama now claims is so crucial, though, he sent the half of a billion U.S. tax dollars to a UN 'Green Climate [slush] Fund' (GCF) controlled by brutal dictators and other unsavory regimes," Government Slaves reported further.

Members of Congress questioned why the president would prioritize climate change – a hotly debated topic with no real scientific consensus – above the Zika virus, hinting that other motivations may have been at play.

"Congress refused to allocate funding for the U.N. Climate Change Fund last year, so the president used this account designated for international infectious diseases to pay for his priority," said U.S. Senator James Lankford (R-OK).

"While I understand that intelligent people can disagree on the human effects on the global climate, it is hard to imagine a reason why the administration would prioritize the U.N. Green Climate Fund over protecting the American people, especially pregnant women, from the Zika virus."

Lankford pointed out in a May article that financing the UN's climate slush fund was illegal under a federal law passed by Bill Clinton. "That is because the parent UN organization, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), accepted the 'State of Palestine' as a member, thereby triggering the funding prohibition," Government Slaves explains.

"So, the administration found a way to offend our ally Israel, delay the Zika response and, if Congress allows him, add another billion dollars to our national debt," said Lankford. "That is a busy month."

Obama administration violates its policy of not paying ransoms

Speaking of debt, these revelations coincide with recent news that the Obama administration shelled out $400M in cash to Iran in exchange for the release of four American prisoners. The State Department actually delivered a planeload of cash to Iran to make the deal, which some say looks a lot like paying a ransom.

A senator and several high-ranking justice officials raised concerns that the payoff could easily be viewed as a ransom payment. On the same day the deal was made (Jan. 17, 2016), Iran released four detained Americans in exchange for the United States freeing several Iranians charged with violating sanctions laws.

The U.S. has long maintained its refusal to negotiate with terrorists and pay ransoms. But the Obama administration insists it wasn't a ransom, countering that it's actually a good thing the U.S. was able to have a conversation about the prisoner exchanges while discussing the nuclear deal.

Whether it's using taxpayer dollars to fund research into a virus that may or may not be causing birth defects in an isolated region of Brazil, or untangling the web of complex foreign policy, the public's freedom continues to be at the mercy of reckless government intent on bankrupting the nation.
