FOX News Acquiesce to Clinton Strategist Falsehood

Appearing on Fox News' The Live Desk, hosted by Martha MacCallum, GOP strategist Christine O'Donnell made the absurd assertion that Senate Barack Obama and Senate Joe Biden propose a “global tax that would require America to pay tax to the U.N”.

Here is the actual congressional summary of Bill S.2433, entitled: A bill to require the President to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the United States foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide, between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day.


Requires the strategy to contain specific and measurable goals and to consist of specified components, including: (1) continued investment or involvement in existing U.S. initiatives related to international poverty reduction and trade preference programs for developing countries; (2) improving the effectiveness of development assistance and making available additional overall United States assistance levels as appropriate; (3) enhancing and expanding debt relief as appropriate; (4) mobilizing and leveraging the participation of businesses and public-private partnerships; (5) coordinating the goal of poverty reduction with other internationally recognized Millennium Development Goals; and (6) integrating principles of sustainable development and entrepreneurship into policies and programs.

Sets forth specified reporting requirements. Directs the Secretary of State to designate a coordinator who will have primary responsibility for overseeing and drafting the reports, as well as responsibility for helping to implement recommendations contained in the reports.

Footnote by Eddie Griffin

In an sincere effect to eliminate poverty in the world, here a fabricator makes good intent appear evil, for the sake of political gain. FOX News allows it and cuts off an rebuttal to the lie.

How can anyone trust a Hillary Clinton administration after all the exposed lies and distortions?

  1. FIRST, it has been US foreign policy for decades if not centuries to fight poverty world-wide. Therefore, clearly S.2433 is doing something entirely different. We do not need another bill to declare that it is US foreign policy to fight world poverty. That is not what S. 2433 does.

    S. 2433 is clearly laying the groundwork for a global tax to the UN. If it only declared as a policy the elimination of poverty, it would be entirely redundant and unnecessary based on decades of US actions and policy.

    SECOND, where did Christine O'Donnell refer to S. 2433?

    She did not say that she was talking about this particular bill.

    She said that Obama and Biden are pushing for a global tax.

    She never said that S. 2433 was the ONLY step in their push for a global tax to the UN.

    Why are you switching the subject to S. 2433, when Christine O'Donnell never mentioned S. 2433 at all?
