Since O’Petulant One, The Almighty and Power BO is on an Ancient Rome poison the well, burn down everything, destroy, destroy, destroy before he leaves office in 3 weeks and decided to stab Israel with a broad sword from his anti-Semitic loins with the help of the UN which has been anti-Israel and anti-US for years…
In his lame-duck attempt to undermine the State of Israel with a diplomatic knifing in the front, President Obama has created fertile ground for a campaign to lead the United States out of the United Nations. Or as I call it: USexit.
A Usexit movement has rarely ever taken hold, with the last attempt to encourage such a move dying in committee in 2015. Then, Congressman Mike Rogers (R-AL) alongside a number of other Congressmen and women floated the American Sovereignty Restoration Act (ASA).
At the time, the bill called for a repeal of The United Nations Participation Act of 1945, much like how Brexit campaigners in the United Kingdom would prefer not to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and simply repeal the 1972 European Communities Act.
The ASA called for the following:
The President shall terminate all membership by the United States in the United Nations, and in any organization, 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.
Commenting at the time, Rep. Mike Rogers said: “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.”
His Senate colleague Rand Paul (R-KY) has previously remarked: “I dislike paying for something that two-bit Third World countries with no freedom attack us and complain about the United States,” explained the senator, who is also Ron Paul’s son. “There’s a lot of reasons why I don’t like the UN, and I think I’d be happy to dissolve it.”
In brief, the actions of the U.S. government over the past week proves President Obama, the U.S. administration, and the wider left-establishment cabal have learned nothing from 2016. They still believe that they — not “We The People” — control the political priorities of the nation.
And they fail to realise how putting a spotlight on an already morally questionable institution like the United Nations — replete with its Human Rights Council with the likes of Saudi Arabia chairing it — brings the UN itself, not Israel’s settlement-building policies, into question.
So expect a resurgence of the American Sovereignty Act and an invigorated USexit movement in the next few months.
There are of course a few reasons for the U.S. to maintain the United Nations on its home turf — not least the fact that the New York-based organisation allows the U.S. to spy on almost every country in the world from the comfort of downtown Manhattan.
But the Obama administration has now accidentally heaped pressure on this relationship, and the intelligence community has, as yet, not uttered a peep about it. Too busy working on undermining the next President of the United States with the whole Russia saga, perhaps.
So our Petulant Leader for 3 weeks more is letting out as many GITMO detainees as he can (and when they kill Americans it will be Trump’s fault) and waging his dog at Putin.
The new executive order signed by Obama offers no new proof that the Russian government was involved in what it calls “tampering with, altering, or causing a misappropriation of information with the purpose or effect of interfering with or undermining election processes or institutions.”
In place of proof of these serious claims, the Obama White House said it will “be providing a report to Congress in the coming days about Russia’s efforts to interfere in our election, as well as malicious cyber activity related to our election cycle in previous elections.” Including his? 🙂
The Almighty Petulant one is going to burn the place down before he leaves.
