U.S. May Withhold Funding for Leading U.N. Agencies With Questionable Leadership

Related imageSeveral United Nations agencies that are among the biggest recipients of U.S. taxpayer dollars have given leadership positions to U.S.-designated state sponsors of terrorism and countries with poor records on human rights and religious freedoms. That funding could be in jeopardy if a draft presidential executive order becomes a reality.

The draft order would create an accountability committee to recommend where U.S. funding to bodies across the global U.N. system could be reduced or reallocated, in line with U.S. policy interests.

“The purpose of the accompanying executive order is to ensure better alignment between United States national interests and U.S. monetary support to the United Nations and other international organizations,” it states.

Among specific targets identified in the draft order, which was first reported on by the New York Times last month, are any U.N. agencies that are deemed to be “controlled or substantially influenced by” state-sponsors of terrorism or systematic human rights abusers.

A recent State Department report to Congress shows that the U.S. in fiscal year 2016 contributed $10.48 billion to international organizations.

Some $1.3 billion of that went to non-U.N. international bodies such as NATO and the African Union, and $659,487,647 went to the regular U.N. operating budget in FY 2016.

Of the U.N. agencies that benefitted from the remaining more than $8 billion, some of the bigger recipients included:

--U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) – $1,508,067,996

--World Food Program (WFP) – $1,393,973,328

--U.N. Children’s Fund (UNICEF) – $514,219,804

--World Health Organization (WHO) – $341,275,815

--Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) – $161,417,915

The U.S. is by far the largest single contributor to these agencies, accounting for 22 percent or more of their annual budgets.

Once they drill down into these contributions, I would be willing to bet that every one of them turns out to be corrupt to the bone.  The UN organization has been corrupt from the very beginning, and FDR knew about it, sending Alger Hiss, a self-avowed Communist, to represent the US.  And it's gone downhill from there.

Suffice to say that if FDR had been alive in 1947, Israel would not be a State in World Politics.  FDR was a racist, born and bred.  His choice of Socialists for his administration goes back to 1932 and continued until his death.

How has the US benefited from the UN?

from our one VETO vote. Which 0 never used and which Trump is going to need to protect Israel.

You are right but that sure is an expensive vote.  What we really need to do is dump the UN and kick them out of the country.

ABOUT TIME! 

The UN has proven to be an ENEMY of the US, for years!  Tin pot Dictator led countries who embody true EVIL in their countries and the world!

The UN has become a haven for EVIL masked as a "compassionate body".  It operated in direct opposition to U.S. interests and, FOOLISHLY, American governments, in the past have done nothing about it.

Thank goodness, Obama is gone and Trump is DRAINING THE SWAMP!

Now you see where all our money is going, When you think of all the places where they spend our money that are not in our interest.  No need to wonder why we have a deceit. If they cut all these handouts within our country and outside our country we have enough money to do what President Trump wants to do.

This is just another reason they are all in the streets (traitors in our institutions) and are fighting like crazies you can see what they have to lose, all our money to destroy us.     

NOW IS THE OPPORTUNITY..................Get Out of that corrupt MADNESS!

These agencies are a joke the money never gets were it's needed  .Always ends up in the dictators pockets or the heads of those agencies . What  Trump needs to do is sever all ties with the UN and A ll of their Agencies Period. their Anti-American and  Theiving Criminals. tell the UN to Go To Hell !!

I wonder how long the UN can last without the HUGE influx of CASH from the U.S.?  The building they are in is relatively modern.  If the electricity is turned off, it will be VERY dark.  Speaking of that building...  Do they OWN it?  Or RENT it?  Uncle Sucker needs to STOP supporting that useless thing.  

I well remember the days when the USSR, voting as individual states, VETOED any and every resolution WE placed in front of them.  And that was OK.  But when WE went against their wishes we were bullies and baby killers, starving the needy.  DOWN WITH THE U.N.!!!!!  OUT WITH THE U.N.!!!!!!

Cut them off, close them down.  Graft, corruption and Anti-American, subversive activities by this Group, should be enough to throw them out of our Country.  They have done nothing, but bad mouth our Country, bleed it out for money, all the time supporting One World Order.    Enough, Basta!!!!     No money, not a dime, should go to these people.    America first, let the rest of the world solve their own problems, they've proved they won't for years, because we run this International Welfare.

The key is DRAFT not Executive Order

More leaks from within the White House

All United States funding to the United Nations and other groups  such as UNHCR, WFB, UNICEF, WHO, FAO  should be in line with U.S. interest.  If not in line with U.S. interest they should not be funded.  Pretty simple.  Before Trump, we gave money to nations and organizations that used our monies to damage our image abroad and actually funded our enemies with our own money.  All of the pass Presidents knew this was stupid but lacked the courage to anger these agencies.  We need to thank Trump for stepping up and acting in Americas best interest.

ALERT ALERT

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

(TeaParty.org) – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
