U.S. Taxpayers Will Continue to Pay More Than One-Fifth of U.N. Budget

By Patrick Goodenough

In one of its last actions of the year, the United Nations General Assembly on Christmas Eve agreed to extend for another three years the formula that has U.S. taxpayers contributing more than one-fifth of the world body’s regular budget.

No member-state called for a recorded vote, and the resolution confirming the contributions that each country will make for the 2013-2015 period was summarily adopted. The assembly also approved a two-year U.N. budget of $5.4 billion.

The U.S. has accounted for 22 percent of the total regular budget every year since 2000, and will now continue to do so for the next three years.

The U.S. representative for U.N. management and reform, Joseph Torsella, expressed satisfaction that the U.S. contribution had not been raised above that level.

“The United States is very pleased to have maintained the critical 22 percent ceiling for U.S. contributions to the U.N. regular budget, protecting U.S. taxpayers from the additional bills – estimated to be at least $300 million annually in both the regular and peacekeeping budgets – that would have resulted from an increase in the U.S. ceiling level,” he said.

Two months ago, when the General Assembly’s budget committee was meeting on the issue, Torsella noted that since the last time the budget contribution formula was reviewed, “developing countries have continued their impressive economic growth.”

 I'm with you Butterfly GET U.S. THE HELL OUT of the U.N. ,It;s not doing us any good that I see.

OH! OH! seems as though my post echos yours.

 Loonier than you think. obama has been slipping billions to the UN on the QT every year since he got in office In addition to What they say we owe in fees. And on top of that they want us to pay the UN all sorts of huge taxes. They hate us as much as he  does. And the UN , China , And Iran ( the major insisters on getting rid of our second amendment, so they can just walk in and do what they have always wanted to.) Chop us up and give the pieces to the UN members. And they are using our money to do it with the help of obama. The UN has the Chinese military set to come in and do the job , from what I hear. Congress needs to cut off the funding to the UN and kick them out of the country.

Everything I read from countries where the people have been forced to give up their guns (and rights) is the same. DON'T LET THEM DO IT.

someoneAlice...be careful..... some

If what you say is true about China's army coming in to chop us up, then the world is about  to end for real. Because Ted Nugent, and the rest of us like him, are going to put up one hell of a fight. 

 bulldog... umm......  I think I could buy all of Al Gores homes with that money ! :))  just say'n...

The UN is nothing more than a rip-off of American tax dollars, about equal with the master thief Obama! Both need kicked out of the U.S.A!!

This 1/5 money to the U.N. needs to stop - talk about UNFAIR, Obama.  CALL YOUR CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS AND BUG THE CRAP OUT OF THEM.  This is what needs to be done.  Apathy will get us nowhere.  THIS IS OUR MONEY THEY'RE WASTING.   WHERE'S MY my $1.84 a gallon for gas LIKE IT WAS FOUR YEARS AGO, the full of crap politicians say they want to help the "middle class", well here's they're chance.  Where's the pipeline from Canada Mr./Ms. politician?

"Torsella noted that since the last time the budget contribution formula was reviewed, “developing countries have continued their impressive economic growth.”

Well of Course they have!  They are sucking the "economic growth" from US! We are bleeding to death, and they are thriving from our corpse! 

This is what 'redistribution of OUR wealth looks like!

Bull Shit ! They mean by these countries use for government and poor is still poor decades we still see so many that suffers in little huts,dirty ass water no hospitals,no food! This has been decades and decades. Of this ! The eliets grab the money while these poor are living like animals without even shoes.As we see still on TV that we are ask to help feed a child with food,water wells ....ect ect and really why are they still like this ? Why ?These children suffer as well here in the United states and it's all about giving here welfare,instead of putting a program in place that program that works to get them back on their feet. To able to get out there and support themselves and family ..welfare has kept fathers out of the homes to insure that kids are raised in the sickness of living a life of hell ! It's here...It's everywhere.other countries needs to use the money given to raise above the sickness of a life of a road that leads to no where but,a more harder life as you grow older ! What would you have then ,Not crap! What would. You children have in life as they grow ?a life of what you had if they are unlikely breake the cycle of depending on the government which is it's putting more burden on others the thing is the government abuse the lives of welfare by keeping the down !Life of drugs-broken families more criminals and m tax payers dollars to house what the government had created as well as those who chosen to not pull themselve up by their boot strips and say no more I want better for my self and family,but you have liberals democrats officials would like to say we are the attackers and we're not ! Look around you and see we are becoming a third world as the poor gets poorer as the welfare entilements grows

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.


The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
