Will Congress Punish the U.N.?
A few weeks back, President Obama and his goons, backed by the friends of tinpot dictators that make up the U.N., set about to sanction Israel. It was a hardcore stab in the back that was so bad, even veteran Dems distanced themselves.
Apparently, that's only the beginning. While the Saudi Arabians punish women for being raped, and the Assad regime drops bombs on its own citizens, and while Venezuelans starve in another failed experiment in socialism, the braindead twerps at the U.N. remain focused on...Israel.
Now Congress is striking back. As the Free Beacon's Adam Kredo tells Liz Wheeler, they've got plans to hit the welfare queens at the U.N. where it hurts. What would that look like? As the Free Beacon notes:
Wheeler said retribution against the U.N. could still be carried out before President-elect Donald Trump takes office, such as expelling Palestinian diplomats from U.S. soil.
Kredo said he had spoken to Trump advisers and multiple offices in the House and Senate, whose responses held several common possibilities.
“It includes possibly expelling Palestinian diplomats from U.S. soil, it includes limiting relationships with countries that voted in favor of this, having repercussions on the diplomatic side, and, of course, it includes potentially withholding funds from the United Nations,” he said.
Cutting off funds may include withholding money from organizations such as the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, which has been trying to co-opt Jewish holy sites, claiming they do not belong to the people of Israel, Kredo said.
The United States provides about 22 percent of the U.N.’s budget. The House Freedom Caucus will meet on Monday to discuss whether it will decrease U.N. funding or make funding a voluntary contribution that Congress will deliberate every two years, BuzzFeed reported.
