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the UN is useless we should have withdrawn from it years ago 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

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.

However…

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.
