This year, United Nations officials have spent a lot of time in Washington meeting with administration officials and Congress, trying to defend their funding from sequestration and the threat of other cuts. Small wonder they are concerned: The U.N. has had a rough 2013.

On international peace and security, human rights, and issues of management and accountability, the organization has reminded the world just how ineffective, inept, and embarrassing it is. Let’s go through a few of the year’s major stories.

  • The organization’s inability to address the ongoing atrocities in Syria has, by the U.N.’s own estimate, resulted in 70,000 deaths. Russia and China have blocked the Security Council from applying sanctions, so the U.N. has instead focused on distributing humanitarian assistance and engaging in unsuccessful diplomatic initiatives. The U.S. and organizations such as the Arab League have recognized the Syrian rebels, but the U.N. continues to recognize Bashar Assad and his representatives in Turtle Bay.
  • North Korea successfully tested a long-range missile in December and a nuclear bomb in February. Both actions flouted multiple U.N. Security Council resolutions. The Security Council responded with a “timid squeak of U.N. indignation,” passing a fifth resolution that slightly tightened sanctions on North Korea. Pyongyang was unimpressed. It proceeded to abandon the 1953 armistice (again) and threaten a nuclear strike on the U.S.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US. They can take their unsuccessful agendas and stick them where the sun never shines! One World Order and Agenda 21 BUZZ OFF!!

Amen!

the UN is useless we should have withdrawn from it years ago 

Absolutely!!!

I'm with you buddy the UN is the threat not the solution. The Devil.

Couldn't have said it better.

 UNfund the U.N. we sertantly can't afford them monetaryly or phylosophycaly,so NO MONEY TO FUND THE COMMUNIST SOCIALIST U.N.

MAYBE! Just Maybe some day these dumb asses will relize that just because they write some thing down on paper doesn't change the minds of crimials who can't read.

If you know your history people. The League of Nations. What the Unitied Nations was before WW2. Was just as clumsy, corrupt and ineffective as the United Nations of buffoons are now. Send them packing and save the money. Turn the UN building in to low rent housing !

If, obama is not out soon the world will suffer great loss of life. If you look at this all with an eternal Christian perspective (our nation was built and sustained on) we all have no choice but, to act on the enemy. George Washington knew this was the case and his faith pulled off what couldn't be done. There are many many instances in the bible and history. Gandhi was in our time and his power was not from man either but, from GOD. Violence is not the answer. 

When this country stops spreading the gospel and stops holding the communists and muslims in check eternal consequences will follow. We were blessed to be a blessing and with this cabinet in office "headed by obama" he is removing all blessings from our nation and we will be replaced. 

One man stands in front of the world and disgraces GOD, American and, Americans while we allow this to happen. I know that if this were a face to face confrontation what the choice would be for most of us but, it's not. Demoncrates fight dirty they have to, what they believe is all a lie. This man is known to be in office illegally and yet we all continue with this charade because he's black and gay whatever the reason. And NO being gay is not right and should not be excepted in private or public, there is a reason it should not be allowed. Just as all of GODS commands have a reason. It's not punishment or confinement but, liberation.

Wow, GOD or obama? Right or wrong? The lives and future of our children or tolerance?  

What if you never got to hear about Jesus? Many may never if this doesn't stop.

GOD has been testing us for the last several years each test is tougher and holds more weight. Used to be less blatant but, it will be a choice in the end that will be life or death for what you BELIEVE.   

The fight starts in you, right the wrongs, stand up now for what you believe, and know to be true, champion the truth. If you see injustice that can be changed by you,  change it. Who do you serve? GOD is bigger than all this but, you gotta put him and what he is first.  Then when the question comes to you the answer will be clear. 

 

 

BOOHOO UN ,CRY ME A RIVER !!

A wothless anti-American organization the UN is. Let's boot them out and let them relocate to another country that can pay for their expenses. Supporting the UN is a wast of taxpayer dollars. Think how much money we could save and use to helping our own people without the UN.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
