Money talks. Every good businessman knows it. Every decent investor knows it, too. President elect Trump certainly knows it.
The UN does not. But they will, very soon.
It’s only been a few days since the anti-Israel vote at the UN, and Obama’s yellow-bellied refusal to veto the resolution. But for all of us who assumed that justice would be served only after Trump took office, we may be wonderfully mistaken.
It looks like Congress is gearing up to do just that as soon as it reconvenes on January 3. And the first order of business? Cut funding to the UN.
Oh, and kick those Palestinian “diplomats” off of American soil.
No money? No functioning. Like we said – money talks.
From Conservative Tribune:
Unnamed congressional leaders told the Washington Free Beacon that Congress was moving swiftly to punish both the U.N. and Palestine for the vote, including measures that could defund the global body and kick Palestinian diplomats off of American soil…
Those are some very big chickens, especially since Fox News estimates that we spend $8 billion on the U.N. and its affiliated organizations each year, of which $3 billion goes to the body itself. That’s more than 185 of the 193 members combined, and certainly more than any other contributor.
Leading the charge is Texas Senator Ted Cruz, whose support for Israel needs no introduction. And Ted didn’t mince words about his feelings towards Obama’s betrayal, and what he planned to do about it.
“Under the Constitution we control the taxpayer funds they would use for their anti-Israel initiatives…the 115th Congress must stop the current administration’s vicious attack on our great ally Israel.”
In short, ‘yes, you can attack Israel, but we can attack your money…and we supply most of it. Well over 75% of it, in fact. So be warned.’
Game, set, match.
Cruz’s measures also proposed cutting funding to any country that supported the hateful resolution, a step that could easily save the United States upward of a billion dollars alone. Liberal representatives are furious – naturally, since both defending your allies and saving money at the same time is too much common sense for them to take.
It should be stated, clearly, that, if a country is providing the biggest share of funding for an organization dedicated to international peace, then that same country should be allowed to pull funds if the organization decides to destroy peace efforts around the globe. And no country is more dedicated to peace than Israel – indeed, the long history of attacks and terrorism against Israel should make it clear that Israelis are willing to endure infinite pain in exchange for a future peace.
The UN, however, saw fit to condemn the victim, rather than the aggressor. Such an organization doesn’t deserve a dime of taxpayer funds.
Senator Cruz’s measures might well be passed even before Trump takes office – a clear example of the ‘Trump Effect’ if ever there was one. Sometimes, people are just waiting for a true leader to appear before their greatness appears.
More power to Cruz, and to Trump. And may the UN collapse like the over-inflated blowhard that it is.
