Under President Joe Biden, the U.S. Agency for International Development, a little-known federal agency that serves as one of America’s tools for international diplomacy, is making headlines.
And not in a good way. And for the most expected of reasons: LGBTQ politics and climate change.
In the first example last week, FISM, a Christian news network, reported that USAID had released a new guide for educators it is dispatching to developing nations in the Third World. The guide is intended to “help them promote gender fluidity and sexual orientation ideology in the classroom” — which is something that American conservatives are fighting across the country.

The guidebook was created to “support USAID’s staff working in the education sector to integrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI+1) considerations into programming.” That was especially so for “approaches that can be used to integrate LGBTQI+ considerations” in classrooms, FISM noted.
The document itself declares that educators must “ensure that education officials do not reveal a student’s sexual orientation or gender identity without the student’s permission — even to the student’s family.” USAID officials must know it is “imperative that educators respect students’ right to privacy.”
USAID defended the guidebook saying its mission is “promoting equity and inclusion is a key principle,” and that the document “reflects USAID’s commitment to reach marginalized populations.”
So while the Biden administration seeks to undermine parents’ rights overseas with LGBTQ advocacy, the federal government is also going to dump tens of millions of dollars into India to help with … disposal of plastics.

The conservative website JustTheNews.com reported on Saturday, “U.S. taxpayers will be on the hook for $30 million in new cooperative grant funding to reduce plastic pollution in India.”
A federal notice outlining the funding opportunity, which was posted by USAID, added, “The purpose of the activity is to reduce plastic pollution, including in the marine environment, through improvements in solid waste management and advancing a plastics circular economy in selected regions of India.”
So why do Americans have to pay millions for India’s plastic pollution?
The left’s old reliable: climate change.
Just The News noted that the program description says, “Plastic pollution from mismanaged municipal solid waste (MSW) has reached a crisis level in India and around the world, filling open dumps, being openly burned, clogging city drains, entering canals, streams, and rivers, and eventually leaking into the ocean.”
“Plastics also contribute to the climate crisis throughout their life cycle, with greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions occurring in fossil fuel extraction, refining, and manufacturing processes, to end-of-life practices of plastic waste,” the document continued.

“By 2050, the global plastics sector could account for 15% of the global annual carbon budget.”
Just The News observed, “Although India is still considered a developing country, its economic growth is expected to outpace that of all major economies next year.”
International analysts expect India’s economy to grow at least 6.1% in 2023. Meanwhile, under Biden, the U.S. economy will grow by just 1.1%.
Meanwhile, India’s national debt, relative to the size of its economy, is far lower than America’s.
India’s debt-to-GDP ratio was 89.2%, while for the U.S., it is 128.1%.
But their plastic is our problem and our expense.
