When U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power testifies before a House Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday, the panel will consider a budget request for international organizations that is 33 percent bigger than last year’s, including a 43 percent hike in U.S. contributions to peacekeeping missions.
The administration’s fiscal year 2015 budget request for the U.N. and other organizations is $4.036 billion, up from $3.031 billion in FY2014. For contributions to peacekeeping missions, it is asking for $2.518 billion, up from $1.765 last year.
The $2.518 billion for peacekeeping amounts to 28.36 percent of the U.N.’s total peacekeeping budget. The U.S. also provides 22 percent of the separate U.N. operating budget. The U.N. has 193 member states.
According to Heritage Foundation scholar Brett Schaefer, President Clinton in 1994 signed a law setting a 25 percent cap on U.S. contributions for U.N. peacekeeping, which at the time were running at around 30 percent.
This SOB has to be STOPPED.
We are trying to get RID of the United Nations from America's shores, so WHY would we consider a budget request for international organizations that is 33 percent higher than last year, PLUS a 43 percent hike in U.S. contributions to peacekeeping missions. Our current president is not out for peacekeeping missions in the U.S., so why would we offer $2.518 billion, up from $1.765 billion last year? Is Obama planning to take over the U.N. next? Probably....
Looks as though the communist, rotten pig, half-breed is trying to "BUY" importance and integrity for himself! Forget it, let's just prevent him and congress from having to pay "ANY FURTHER FOREIGN AIDE" AT ALL!!! The countries who receive the aide, still hate the USA
What part of F the U.N. doesnt barry understand .
By the way nice photo of the punks that are coming for our guns (good luck with that ).
For the communist to take over America it is required we have a debt we can not repay. I think we are there.
The United States should Nuke the United Nations in repayment for all they have done to destroy us out of greed and envy alone , and Obam-ass should be tied to the bomb .
NO WAY Another reason to leave the UN no more money to foreign agencies of any kind. Perhaps the Tea Party can take on the task of ridding the US citizens of the UN and its communist agenda.
This action is tantamount to financing the NEW WORLD ORDER. If Congress were to approve this, the slippery slide that I have been blogging about, will get even slippery. WE, as a Country, DO NOT WANT TO SLIDE INTO THAT ABYSS. Call your Senators/Representatives.... This is B*** S*** and needs to be stopped. Almost 7 BILLION dollars for the UN...We have people out of work, a failed Health plan, in debt up to our friggin eye balls, our military being reduced, a failing infrastructure. By GOD ALMIGHTY, what does it take to stop this tyrant?
I don't see any minorities (Whites) in this picture of the paper tiger UN peace keeping troops . Could some buddy please call the UN and Ask why they are be racist again. Who is Barry ? to want to give these paper tigers 33% more of America's hard earned money. What Barry should be doing is signing them all up for Obamacare instead.
Well of course he does. We need to get the U.N. out of this country and now. Pay them money , for what? HELL, WE ARE BROKE ! ! ! ! This guy is sooo not an American. Why is the G.O.P. letting him continue to break the law and the bank????? Some one please tell me why they are not even talking about impeaching this treason peace of communist crap ???????? I am so tired of this .
This two-faced, anti-American, lying, Muslim communist fuck has to be stopped, kicked out of the White House, and tried for treason.
