If only the U.N. were merely useless
How long before the U.N. demands Bernie Madoff be appointed head of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
In what one critic called a move akin to placing Bernie Madoff in charge of thwarting fraud on the stock market, Iran has been elected as one of the 15 members of the United Nation’s Arms Trade Treaty conference….
The choice of Iran was condemned by UN Watch, a Geneva-based monitoring group. “Right after a UN Security Council report found Iran guilty of illegally transferring guns and bombs to Syria, which is now murdering thousands of its own people, it defies logic, morality and common sense for the UN to now elect this same regime to a global post in the regulation of arms transfers,” said Hillel Neuer, UN Watch’s executive director.
On Friday, a UN report written by members of the Security Council’s Iran sanctions committee found that “Iran has continued to defy the international community through illegal arms shipments.”
Meanwhile, back in the Twilight Zone, Syria looks likely to land a spot on the U.N. Human Rights Council in 2014:
Despite its poor record on human rights, Syria is on course to winning membership on the UN Human Rights Council, UN Watch reported on Thursday.
UN Watch, an NGO that monitors the international body’s activity, cited a draft resolution presented in Geneva in which the US opposed Syria’s candidacy for a Human Rights Council seat in 2014. The resolution, which is also supported by the European Union, said Damascus “fails to meet the standards” for Human Rights Council membership.
President Bashar Assad’s regime is, however, likely to get a spot on the 47-nation council “due to the prevalent system of fixed slates, whereby regional groups orchestrate uncontested elections, naming only as many candidates as allotted seats,” according to UN Watch.
Do you think taking off the top 10 floors is enough?
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
How about a new organization of nations that does not allow Muslim or Communist dominated nations to Join.
Opps! We couldn’t get in either.
It is about a decade or two PAST time to get out of the UN…
or at VERY least get these phucs out of the U.S.
The entire boondoggle is a living, breeding dystopia that seems to be using Animal Farm as a manual. It is a concerted threat to the U.S., and has been for many years.
Evict, and cut our fiscal support to the level of the third world, which has more benefit from the UN than do we.
If we’re going to leave the Blue Helmets in the US, I say we move their World HDQ to the wild and lawless Arizona border with Me-hee-co.
Take that, you cowards.
Speaking of Blue Helmets…and I’m sure there are some really fine, brave people who have to serve under them…they have done more to vector disease, foster child prostitution and rape in the last decade or two than has been truthfully reported.
If it were not for the pirates at the UN, Sadam would never have been able to survive the sanctions between wars, IMNHO.
That’s because the Third World uses the UN as a cash cow to support its armed forces. They like to rent out armies for Peacekeeping, whereupon the UN pays them like 180-dollars a day per Blue Helmet. Then, the dictator pockets 170-bucks and leaves his soldiers to live off the land, which they do. And, as they’ve proven time and time again, they sure won’t fight, much less die, for the cause they’re sent to uphold.
“If we’re going to leave the Blue Helmets in the US, I say we move their World HDQ to the wild and lawless Arizona border with Me-hee-co.”
I second that!!
Those attacking us from without, like the UN, are supported by our domestic enemies, such as Obama, Hillary, and their representatives in the state department. It will take a monumental effort to save our country.
Serve a 3 day to vacate the premises and country notice. Reduce funding to zero. Then maintain the U.S. seat on the Security Council in an attempt to thwart every idiot idea they come up with. The UN is just another example of the sheer idiocy of the usual progressive ideas.
They have been busy of late:
This is worse than nuts. I guess this won’t be an item subject to veto.
The next time America is attacked by
terroristsfriends of Bill Ayers, I will direct my Lefty friends & family to this UN legitimization.
That does sound crazy … but in some crazy countries, leaders say you have to pass laws to find out what is in them, and they don’t even write them till they are already passed.
In some crazy countries, a leader forces electricity rates to skyrocket, which harms the poorest people the most. But those poor people keep electing these crazies.
The UN choice seems in perfect harmony with current US (Democrat) leadership.
Way back in the 1960s there was a campaign,
GET U.S. OUT OF THE UN, AND THE UN OUT OF THE U.S.
Seems to me that that slogan encapsulates the entire reason for the Declaration of Independence.
Everything involving the UN requires the U.S. to cede more and more of our sovereignty to international bodies, from the UN itself, to UNESCO, to NAFTA, to WTO, to NATO, et alia.
While the proposed Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) treaty and the North American Union (our proposed EU medicine) have been moved slightly back on the stove, both of these are very much hot topics to the elite that would bind us down more.
Our enemies aren’t so much in Moscow, Beijing, Tehran and other places, as they are in Washington which are selling us out by entangling us more and more with foreign nations. Geo. Washington had some insight on the wisdom of such a course.
We NEED better leaders.
You lost me with your conflation of the UN and free trade, pardner.
The first is bad. The latter good.
My complaint is with the concept of free trade as defined by government. That sort of FT is confined to politically correct concepts and is NOT free trade as we conservatives believe. Real FT is just that, free trading among willing participants. You don’t need documents consisting of 000s of pages to “define” free trade.
My view of FT follows that of Richard Cobden (UK, 1804-1865) who famously said, “Peace will come to earth when the people have more to do with each other and governments less.”
To which I say, Well said, sir, well said. You will note that statists -no matter where found, Third Reich, Soviet Russia, Red China, Pharoahic Egypt, all Islamic societies, the US Democratic Party – all elevate government as the End All and Be All. We conservatives want government the least necessary.
The root problem, of course, is that of the error of first instance. We have a history of stupid tariffs and regulation as law. That goes back quite far in our history. Rather than do the radical thing (scythe the laws down), for decades the approach has been to mediate the bad law with better law.
We have not reached the point where Americans feel OK with totally departing from our earlier folly.
Like I always say:
-democrats: The most government the people can afford
-Republicans: the least government the people need
-democrats: the most government we can shove down their throats in the least amount of time
-republicans: “Hey, where are my golf clubs-I want that staffer fired!”
The UN needs to move from New York to somewhere that suits them better, like Somalia or Saudi Arabia.
Back in the 70s, a resolution was introduced into the General Assembly whereby Zionism was going to be officially equated with racism. I believe it was introduced by Amin’s Uganda. Anyway, the cartoonist Oliphant penned a panel that showed a coat hanger inside Idi Amin’s famous medal-bedecked uniform. Beside him was a guy with a turban made from a towel that was labelled NY Athletic Club. The turbaned guy was saying, “Now that we have declared Zionism as a form a racism, I motion that we declare stupidity a form of intellect.” That concept of stupidity as a form of intellect has always stuck with me, and anytime the UN vexes me, well I just repeat that to myself.
Mark Twain once observed that fiction has to conform to certain elements of believability, while non-fiction is under no such constraints. A fictional UN based on historical facts would read like a bad pulp novel.
don’t they actually own the building? thought I read somewheres the building was donated to them and deeded to them.
I say boot them even if we have to pay for the building. many citizens would donate $2 to do that.
Curious, it is, that the name “Susan Rice” has yet to appear anywhere in this thread.
Even more curious is the lack of curiosity as to who she is, and how she came to be Obama’s pick for U.N. ambassador.
No cats were killed in the nomination of Susan Rice
my cat thanks you.
now I remember there was something odd on Rice but I do not remember specifics.
The UN has all its pretty flags evoking Disneyland’s “It’s a Small World,” with the optimistic and hopeful feeling those dancing and singing dolls representing the children of all the world’s countries elicit in the average good-natured person enjoying a carefree day at the amusement park.
But ….. but ….. for Israelis and Americans that fun trip …………………..
“Do you think taking off the top 10 floors is enough?”
All the way to the basement. The plow the ground with salt. 🙂
Q: “Are the white UN vans here because this place is awful, or is this place awful because of all the white UN vans?”
A: “The latter, of course.”
Far and away I find this UN proposal the most telling.
Tax the rich and spread the money around
Personally I cant think of a more immoral proposition.
Condider the (im)moral basis upon which it finds its reasoning.
Some nations have more money than others.
Some nations have citizens that have too much money and therefore must “share” the benefits of their money with those not as fortunate.
Somehow its “not fair” that some nations dont achieve the same results as other nations….even though all nations are basically free to persue any economic agenda it wants to persue.
Some nations need to skip the demands of some industrialization plan and be rewarded for their apparent lack of iniative or rewards.
Its all right out of Vonneguts Harrison Bergeron.
We now have at least the suggestion that a Handicapper General is needed.
People still speak of the U.N. as if it is a legitimate organization, and even remotely affiliated with the mission statement under which it was created.
Next thing we’ll hear is how Planned Parenthood is designed to help married couples find the right contractor/financing to build an addition to their home.
Senate set to approve controversial UN gun treaty
(One of many international “measures” in the pipeline)
John Bolton would have been the UN Ambassador for the entire Bush Presidency if only former Republican Senator Lincoln Chafee, (the current POS governor of RI), had voted for confirmation while in the Senate.
I like Bolton for one simple reason, he tells it like it is.
As far as I’m concerned, the UN building could be turned into a USO hotel for service members…
Just a thought: Mohammed Atta and his gang of terrorists flying the planes into the UN building instead of the Towers and Pentgon.
This was sent to me by a strong Second Amendment supporter. I am not able to include the links for the Petition. Maybe go to dickmorris.com . I signed it yesterday.
