U.S. MAY EXIT UNITED NATIONS – REP. MIKE ROGERS INTRODUCES BILL…U.N. IS A POST WW2 ‘FEEL-GOOD’, EXPENSIVE, USELESS ORGANIZATION

Posted on Updated on

 

  • The bill reads: “The President shall terminate all membership by the United States in the United Nations in any organ, specialised agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body of the United Nations.
  • Rep. Mike Rogers: ‘Why should the American taxpayer bankroll an international organization that works against America’s interests around the world? The time is now to restore and protect American sovereignty and get out of the United Nations.”

Proposed by congressman Mike Rogers, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act also seeks a complete withdrawal from membership of the World Health Organisation.

And Republicans have even demanded the UN remove its headquarters from New York in a shocking blow to global relations.

Doing so would mean repealing the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, which was enacted just months after the end of World War II.

Quietly introduced on January 3, the act was quickly passed on to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, where it has been sponsored by at least half a dozen supporters including Missouri Representative Jason Smith.

The bill reads: “The President shall terminate all membership by the United States in the United Nations in any organ, specialised 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.”

Rep. Mike Rogers: ‘Why should the American taxpayer bankroll an international organization that works against America’s interests around the world? The time is now to restore and protect American sovereignty and get out of the United Nations.”

 

From The Business Insider:

The bill, titled the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017, was proposed on January 3. It is cosponsored by a handful of Republican lawmakers, including North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones, Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs, Missouri Rep. Jason Smith, Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie, Tennessee Rep. John Duncan Jr., and Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz.
