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

TOTAL BULLSHIT!: Trump Goes Off On Mueller Report, People Who ‘Take So-Called Notes'

After a 22-month investigation — with 2,800 subpoenas, 500 witnesses and 500 search warrants, which generated thousands of pages of information, all costing upwards of $30 million — the media boiled it all down to two words: “I’m fucked.”

The media, toeing the line for Hillary Clinton — who, after her shocking and humiliating loss decided that she needed someone or something to blame and pointed a crooked finger at Russia — decided that President Trump all but admitted his alleged crimes with those two words.

In his report revealed on Thursday, Robert Mueller described a scene in the Oval Office that allegedly took place right after he was appointed special counsel and charged with investigating allegations that Trump or his campaign minions colluded with Russia to alter the outcome of the 2020 election.

“Oh my God,” the president told then Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to the report. “This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m fucked.” The interaction was recorded in notes taken by Session’s chief of staff, Jody Hunt.

Many media outlets did not include the context, which was plainly spoken by Trump at the same time. “Everyone tells me if you get one of these independent counsels it ruins your presidency,” Trump said. “It takes years and years and I won’t be able to do anything. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me.”

Luckily for America, he has been able to work through it all, returning the economy to its past glory, achieving record lows in unemployment, and much more.

Now, Trump is taking aim at “people that take so-called ‘notes.’ “

“Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue. Watch out for people that take so-called ‘notes, when the notes never existed until needed. Because I never….” Trump wrote Friday morning on Twitter.

Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue. Watch out for people that take so-called “notes,” when the notes never existed until needed. Because I never....

Trump got worked up after that, calling some tales told in the report “total bullshit.”

“[I]t was not necessary for me to respond to statements made in the ‘Report’ about me, some of which are total bullshit & only given to make the other person look good (or me to look bad). This was an Illegally Started Hoax that never should have happened,” he wrote.

Late Thursday night, Trump also praised Wall Street Journal opinion writer Kimberley Strassel, saying she “should get the Pulitzer. She is a treasure (and I don’t know her) who correctly called the Russia Hoax right from the start! Others who were soooo wrong will get the Prize. Fake News!”

Jump to "where the Mueller team lists its 'prosecution and declination' decisions . . . try not to picture Mueller 'pit bull' prosecutor Andrew Weissmann collapsed under mountains of federal statutes after his two-year hunt to find one that applied."

In a tweet on Thursday, Strassel perfectly summed up the contents of the Mueller report.

“1) What is in the Mueller report: –endless, unrevealing details of inconsequential interaction between trump folks and Russians. –remarkable details about the many and varied statutes the SC [special counsel] nonetheless debated using to tie someone up for something on the Russia front,” she wrote.
