US exit from United Nations could become reality with fresh 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.

"Un" a prefix that usually indicates the opposite of something that can be done. Does this mean that "unexit" is something that can't be done in America?

More Fake News.

If I Google: Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), entitled American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017, seeks a complete US withdrawal from the UN

I'll get pages of bullshit news sites, many of them are Russian.

And if you think these new sources are credible, consider that one congressman wanting to do something means nothing. It takes much more than that to even generate meaningful talk about new policy.

Don't believe BADecker's hype.

Trump: Congress To Vote On Bill To Leave The UN





Days after Trump’s inauguration, members of Congress are seizing the moment and pushing for America to exit the United Nations, introducing a bill to the House that will repeal the United Nations Participation Act of 1945 and reclaim full American sovereignty.

Under a Trump presidency there is a growing belief that the idea of America exiting the UN is not only feasible but could capture the national imagination, as American citizens seek to defeat the corrupt global elite and regain control of their country.

The bill is called the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017 and it is set to repeal the United States’ participation in the UN and outlaw the authorization of any American funds for the UN, as well as the participation of US military in any UN operation. The bill also revokes diplomatic immunity for UN officials.

The bill requires: (1) the President to terminate US membership in the United Nations, including any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body; and (2) closure of the US Mission to the United Nations.

The bill prohibits:

We see that Trump is just like Hitler, we can compare him like Hitler. Hitler is one of the most well known president, we all know that Hitler is very strict. He can do rules and regularization fast and efficient. Just like Trump, he is just elected president, but he do a lot of legal legislative rules. We know Trump is also like Hitler because of his strict compliances

The Governments of Germany and the United States are different. If Hitler were elected President of the U.S. today, there would be little he could do to harm America any more than Obama did.

Trump becomes Hitler just because the American public want to leave the UN? I am yet to find a single similarity between Trump and Hitler. On the other hand, there are a lot of similarities between Hitler and Merkel.

First, I don't think that America will leave UN.
They have a lot influence there, main role in all UN agencies, and also a lot benefits as well.
Second, Trump can't make such decision alone, without US congress.
It's true that Republicans rule in the Congress now but we can't say that Trump control absolutely all Republican members in the Congress. Smiley
I don't believe everything what I read in the newspapers or internet today.
It's better to think with your own brain, based on logic and intellect.

Well, it's all about money. So, if America hadn't paid her fees, let's go the rest of the way and get the UN out.

Neither this forum, nor any "other" media outlets, express all the deals and agreements you make with your friends everyday. In fact, none of those agreements may ever be known.

In the same way, many agreements made between powerful politicians and wealthy people may never be known. But when the rich and powerful make deals, they might affect us all.

The point? Prison Planet is only scratching the surface of what goes on behind the scenes..

The current voting system in the UN must be abolished. Right now, nations such as Nauru and Palau (having a population of just 10,000) are having the same votes as India and Indonesia (population of 1.3 billion and 250 million respectively).

That is good news. The United States of America must now stop wasting their resources controlling other countries through the guise of the United Nations. Trump has seen that the previous administration is using the UN activities so the oligarchs can bring our millions of dollars in form of aid to other countries to fund their own greediness. Its time for the UN to be independent of USA and move on for the betterment without the strings pulled by the USA.

You're a special kind of idiot aren't you?

The UN was created to prevent war in the world, but each country has its own interests. They try to impose these interests by force. If the UN will fall apart then the world could plunge into chaos.

Yes... the United Nations was the successor to the League of Nations. But after a promising start, the UN became a toothless body from 1980 onward. It was unable to prevent conflicts from happening (such as those in Sudan and Afghanistan) and it couldn't act against human rights abuses perpetrated by various dictatorships and juntas.

Why?
Because USA or Russia support the dictators
They're permanent members so we can do nothing if one of them disagree.

If USA leaves we will finally be able to act!

NO!

There will always be a need to talk with others. Even Trump understands that. He shall also understand that without the US, the leading countries at the UN would be Russia and China, which have their own interests, very frequently much different from those of the US.
