The United Nations (UN) is attacking
- The United States
- Individual freedom
- Free enterprise
…. all at the expense of U.S. taxpayers. You’re paying for it!
The United Nations is anything but united … and nations that neither promote nor protect human rights – in violation of the UN Charter – are dictating policies and resolutions!
The total of all U.S. contributions to the UN in 2016 was $9,718,025,940 … out of total UN expenditures that year of $49,340,531,102.
Our $9.7 billion could have been used much more productively and efficiently by making direct foreign aid payments to those who need help rather than allowing UN bureaucrats – who are paid $84,000 to $115,000 per year – to decide where to spend our money.
Here are 5 shocking revelations about the UN that should infuriate the U.S. into withdrawing its membership:
- The UN condemned the U.S. for announcing the relocation of its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem.
As a sovereign nation, the U.S. has a right to locate its embassy in each country in whatever location is agreed to by the U.S. and the country.
The UN Security Council has no business condemning the U.S. for exercising this prerogative.
- The UN is staunchly anti-Israel.
When Israel was admitted into the UN in 1949, the vote was 9-1 in the Security Council … Egypt voted No and Great Britain abstained.
The vote in the 58-member General Assembly was 37-12 with 9 abstentions.
Today there are 193 member-nations in the UN … and 31 of them do not recognize the existence of the State of Israel…
38% of all resolutions issued by the Human Rights Council are resolutions condemning Israel.
Recently 6 new resolutions condemning Israel were passed by the General Assembly – one of which declared the Old City of Jerusalem and the Western Wall to be “occupied territory.”
- The UN promotes socialism and an anti-America one-world government.
The UN has frequently criticized the U.S. for not providing government-funded health care for all.
The UN campaigns to restrict private ownership of firearms and to promote international gun control.
They seek to criminalize “hate speech” in violation of the principle of freedom of speech.
The UN disrespects freedom of religion by instructing the Catholic Church to give up its opposition to abortion.
- The U.S. contributes 22% of the UN’s general operating budget and receives condemnation in return.
The UN has faulted the state of Alabama for its voter ID laws and for their lack of taxpayer-subsidized “protections” for women and minorities.
It’s a classic example of biting the hand that’s feeding it.
- The UN is rampant with hypocrisy.
The UN prides itself on protecting human rights, but allows notorious human rights abusers Cuba, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia to serve on the Human Rights Council.
The UN sends billions of dollars to third-world countries who are threatened by “climate change.” But most of the money goes to the dictators in charge, who use it to consolidate power and punish enemies.
U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Congressmen Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Mike Rogers (R-AL) have submitted legislation to defund the UN and to get the U.S. out of the UN completely.
