In our Let's Cut Some Spending series, ForAmerica chronicles the many ways Washington wastes YOUR tax dollars - and as you’ll see, the list is endless.


Today’s offering: Biden spends $100,000 on Palestinian female 'running and wellness' project!



The Washington Examiner reports:


The Biden administration is focused on a new project amid Israel's war against the terrorist group Hamas: "improving the mental health of 200 adolescent girls and young women in Palestine through weekly running and wellness sessions." In late September, the U.S. Department of State directed a $100,000 grant for a roughly two-year initiative to Free to Run, a Connecticut-based nonprofit organization seeking 'to increase the opportunities for women and girls to engage in public life, using sport as a tool of empowerment and education,' federal funding records show. The goal is to build 'Palestinian girls' and young women's resilience through running,' according to the U.S. government.
'Sports opportunities are extremely limited or even non-existent in the regions we operate in, due to a lack of resources and insecurity,' Free to Run says on its website.

Congressman Tim Burchett is right. This money could have gone toward helping homeless veterans in our own country.


Just another example of how this president and Washington-at-large don't give a damn when it comes to spending OUR money.
