Trump’s Plan to Kill UN Begins with Withdrawal Bill

A Republican-proposed House Resolution has quietly slipped past the public radar – proposing that the United States withdraw its membership from the United Nations, just as another bill was being concocted to cut US funding to the body.

The bill, proposed by Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), entitled American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017, seeks a complete US withdrawal from the UN, that the international body remove its headquarters from New York and that all participation be ceased with the World Health Organization as well.

Rogers and other prominent Republicans have repeatedly voiced the idea that US taxpayer money should not go to an organization that does not promote US interests – especially one that does not stick up for Israel together with the US. The new document is merely the latest manifestation of sentiment that has been brewing for some time.

The bill was quietly introduced on January 3 and was passed on to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. If approved, the bill would take two years to take effect. It would also repeal the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, signed in the aftermath of WWII.

“The President shall terminate all membership by the United States in the United Nations in any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body of the United Nations…The United States Mission to the United Nations is closed. Any remaining functions of such office shall not be carried out,”according to the text of HR 193.

The bill would also prohibit “the authorization of funds for the US assessed or voluntary contribution to the UN,” which would also include any military or peacekeeping expenditures, the use of the US military by the UN, and the loss of “diplomatic immunity for UN officers or employees” on US soil.

Rogers had tried to pass the same bill in 2015, albeit unsuccessfully.

“Why should the American taxpayer bankroll an international organization that works against America’s interests around the world?” Rogers asked at the time in defense of his idea.

“The time is now to restore and protect American sovereignty and get out of the United Nations.”

Another supporter of HR 193, Rend Paul (R-KY) also put it like this in January 2015: “I dislike paying for something that two-bit Third World countries with no freedom attack us and complain about the United States… There’s a lot of reasons why I don’t like the UN, and I think I’d be happy to dissolve it,” added the Kentucky senator.

Later, in June 2015, Rogers had introduced his document – then named HR 1205, but essentially the same USExit idea he’s proposing now.

“The UN continues to prove it’s an inefficient bureaucracy and a complete waste of American tax dollars.” Rogers went on to name treaties and actions he believes “attack our rights as US citizens.” These included gun provisions, the imposition of international regulations on American fossil fuels – but more importantly, the UN attack on Israel, by voting to grant Palestine the non-member state ‘permanent observer’ status.

“Anyone who is not a friend to our ally Israel is not a friend to the United States.”

That same logic was used this January when House Republicans prepared a legislation that would decrease – even potentially eliminate – US funding to the UN. According to calculations by the conservative Heritage Foundation, the US provides over 22 percent of all UN funding.

The bill to cut the funding was introduced shortly after the UNSC voted 14-0 to condemn the continued construction of illegal Israeli settlements – the resolution Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu considered a backstab from the US, which declined to veto it, as per former President Barack Obama’s suddenly critical attitude to Israel at the end of his presidency.

Still, the resolution vote came the same year the Obama administration awarded Israel with its largest military aid package ever, signing a memorandum of understanding in September that would give it $38 billion over 10 years.

However, with Donald Trump now in power, many Republicans seem to be attacking the idea of participating in the UN or cutting funding with renewed fervor.

Each year, the US gives approximately $8 billion in mandatory payments and voluntary contributions to the international peace agency and its affiliated organizations. About $3 billion of that sum goes the UN’s regular peacekeeping budgets.

  1. Good. Move the UN to Russia where there are some leaders who operate with some positive attitudes and respect for international law and towards humans in general. Leave the united snakes to roll around in their own pit of selfish values and interests.

  2. Of course certain ” politicians” don’t want to belong to the UN –anymore than they want to abide by the Constitution. If the UN ever gets a backbone those “politicians” could end up in the International Courts. This law would make International Law even more of a joke to the US/NWO freaks. As far as saving money by quitting the UN – don’t make us laugh- these thieves will find another place to spend the savings or maybe send more to the Zionists. Obama defunded the agencies that oversee/ investigate all monies going overseas including the payout of NATO, UN and a dozen other so that the US populace couldn’t see the Billions/Trillions being stolen and to what sleazeball countries/governments– it all went to.

  3. NATO is well past it sell-by date and like the fishy dead entity that it is, stinks to high heaven. It is nothing more than a proactive war machine feeding off the US military-industrial complex – like a remora suckered onto the underbelly of a shark and feeding off scraps of countless, illegal wars. Disband NATO before Putin buries it under European Bison dung along the Russian borderlands. A real soldier regards them as nothing more than Merkel’s boy scouts – a Don Quixote mercenary rabble.

  4. Agreed. An the international law is overrated. It doesn’t really exist outside of the practice of the UN founding elites, it is not palpable.

  5. Just think of the enormous amount of money the UN brings into New York every day. Numerous plane flights, expensive hotel room rentals, taxi cab services, ladies of the night services, medical services, liquor sold, bars, and on and on and on. I have not seen any data but I would bet the UN is a significant fraction of the NY economy. I believe they will fight this proposal. After all MONEY is the GOD of New York isn’t it? I bet even the NYSE folks would not be in favor of this idea. I don’t think it will happen after the dust clears. Frankly I would bet even Trump does not favor this plan. After all he lives and owns much property in NY.

    • Culinary bloggers and chefs that frequent New York restaurants agree that the best restaurant in New York is the UN caffeteria, with lavish daily food service like “at weddings”.

  6. Abandoning UN could spring MI6, CIA and Mossad agency clashes as UN is serving well as an umbrella for illegal racket, drug and weapons smuggling and all sorts of shady leverages for its founding senior elites. Africa I believe would take the hardest hit. The thing is there is no world order, there has never been one and it cannot come into existence by abandoning or selective morality, or by gun power.

  7. Phoenix is going back to the ashes, meaning the dog (Commonwealth) eating its own vomit. Israel will wake up to a frantic surprise when they discover what was UN all about and, should US leave UN (or UN leaves US, it is the same really) how it is going to be vital to cherish relationship with its adjacent neighbors and stop pretending to be a “world power” country or a north atlantic military industrial giant.
