If you think the Orange Menace will pull us out of the UN, or even cut its funding, you are a dumbass.






Donald Trump Budget Cuts Would Make U.N. Work 'Impossible' | Time ...


President Donald Trump's huge proposed cuts in U.S. funding for the United Nations would make it "simply impossible" for the world organization to carry out essential work to promote peace, combat poverty and provide humanitarian assistance, the U.N. spokesman said Wednesday.

What peace? Where? Poverty is everywhere. What is humane about blue-hatted thugs getting an American taxpayer funded rape-a-thon in some Third World hellhole? Raze the UN to the ground and everybody will be at least 10% better off the very next day.


Stephane Dujarric told reporters the U.N. will wait to see what the U.S. Congress does with the proposed budget, "but we will need resources to deliver on our mandates."

Could he mean their self-generated mandates? Nice gig, that.

Republicans who control both houses of Congress are skeptical about the administration's math and Democrats are opposed to the blueprint.

The United States is the largest contributor to the U.N. budget, reflecting its position as the world's largest economy. It currently pays 25% of the United Nations' $5.4 billion regular operating budget and over 28% of the separate $7.8 billion peacekeeping budget.

None dare call it fascism (evil) or treason.

The budget that the Trump administration submitted Monday for the U.S. fiscal year starting Oct. 1 would cut funding for U.N. peacekeeping by $1.3 billion, over 50%. Contributions to international organizations, including the United Nations, would drop by $447 million, a 31% decrease. Among other cuts are total funding for the U.N. children's agency UNICEF and, as previously announced, the U.N. population agency UNFPA.

That's not enough! Gut the bastards!

During a visit to the White House by the U.N. Security Council last month, Trump described the U.S. contributions to the United Nations as "peanuts compared to the important work."

Don't worry, internationalist kiddies. The roadkill-topped US president just loves to hear itself talk. It is The Establishment and The Establishment needs the UN for two reasons: 1) So it can pretend to care about the littles and 2) So it can fuck with anyone, anywhere, anytime.

BTW, the same goes for Clumpy The Clown's "demand" that NATO countries pay for more of their own defense. That was simply campaign rhetoric for the dumbasses who don't know we fought two World Wars to keep those execrable Europeans free.

Europe's dirty little secret is it would rather be ruled by Russians, Germans, or even mohammedans than do what is necessary to be free. I know the price WE paid to beat back the krauts twice and my idiot russkie cousins once.

Other Americans are getting tired of defending Western Civilization from the barbarians, but not me. MEMO TO EUROPE: I am in the minority. Either start fighting to the death or accept slavery and ignorance.

But the president and the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, have been pushing for reform of the world body, especially its 16 far-flung peacekeeping operations.

Dujarric said U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres "has been very vocal on the need to reform and is engaged — and is committed and will continue to work on reform ensuring the U.N. ... delivers what it is meant to deliver."

"Cushy jobs for globalist fascists doing nothing since 1945"

Atul Khare, the U.N. undersecretary-general for peacekeeping support, said at a news conference that peacekeeping "is effective," pointing to nearly 70 missions that have wrapped up and "left a legacy of stability in countries spanning from El Salvador to Namibia to East Timor."

Bullshit.

The U.N. has already announced that three missions will soon be closing — in Ivory Coast, Liberia and Haiti.

Khare said "peacekeeping is cost effective," saying the current $7.8 billion budget supports 16 missions, a regional center and logistics base and the deployment of over 113,000 personnel. In addition, he said, the U.N. supports 22,000 African Union peacekeepers and 595 civilians in Somalia.

Adjusting for inflation, Khare said, "the cost of U.N. peacekeeping to member states today is 17% lower in 2016-17 than it was in 2008-09 when measured as cost per capita of deployed uniformed personnel."

The budget proposal says Trump wants to cap the U.S. peacekeeping contribution at 25% but notes that the U.N. General Assembly only revises assessment rates every three year, and the next negotiation isn't due until 2018.

"Therefore, a 50% reduction in U.S. funding for U.N. peacekeeping activities would need to be achieved through reductions in overall U.N. peacekeeping budget levels or reduced U.S. contributions," it says. "The request assumes greater burden sharing by other countries and a U.S. assessed contribution at or below the statutory cap of 25%."

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
