Bill Quietly Introduced to Withdraw US from the UN

Quote:
Washington, DC — (RT) A Republican-proposed House Resolution has quietly slipped past the public radar – proposing that the United States withdraw its membership from the United Nations, just as another bill was being concocted to cut US funding to the body.

The bill, proposed by Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), entitled American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017, seeks a complete US withdrawal from the UN, that the international body remove its headquarters from New York and that all participation be ceased with the World Health Organization as well.

Rogers and other prominent Republicans have repeatedly voiced the idea that US taxpayer money should not go to an organization that does not promote US interests – especially one that does not stick up for Israel together with the US. The new document is merely the latest manifestation of sentiment that has been brewing for some time.

The bill was quietly introduced on January 3 and was passed on to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. If approved, the bill would take two years to take effect. It would also repeal the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, signed in the aftermath of WWII.

Short and to the point:
Introduced in House (01/03/2017)

American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017

This bill repeals the United Nations Participation Act of 1945 and other specified related laws.

The bill requires: (1) the President to terminate U.S. membership in the United Nations (U.N.), including any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body; and (2) closure of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations.

The bill prohibits: (1) the authorization of funds for the U.S. assessed or voluntary contribution to the U.N., (2) the authorization of funds for any U.S. contribution to any U.N. military or peacekeeping operation, (3) the expenditure of funds to support the participation of U.S. Armed Forces as part of any U.N. military or peacekeeping operation, (4) U.S. Armed Forces from serving under U.N. command, and (5) diplomatic immunity for U.N. officers or employees.

This has to go through the Senate, the electoral college of our Legislature. Wild card, for sure.

I still stand by my statment that I made sometime ago that if we stopped hemorrhaging wealth in some vain attempt to be the world police and arbiter that I would not take issue w/ the state providing things like health care to the citizens. It is the fact that we cannot even keep our domestic affairs in order and it seems that we are more focused on international politics than local issues.

Tend to your own yard before you mow your neighbors.


IMO this is a step in the right direction.

If this is true, why did Thumper nominate Nikki Haley as Ambassador to the UN?

Yes, isolation worked so well for us in the 1930's.

But the UN is a massive pile of corruption. And the fact that it does things like putting Saudi on the human rights commision further displays its uselessness.

Another great example of where the concept was good but the execution was extremely lacking.
