Congress Threatens to Defund UN over Anti-Israel Vote

Written by  Joel B. Pollak

Ambassador Samantha Power, who represents the United States at the UN Security Council, sat mum on Friday when the chair called for votes against an anti-Israel resolution declaring Israeli settlements illegal. But she raised her hand high when the chair called for abstentions.

She, and her boss, President Barack Obama, could have voted no, in keeping with precedent, and in deference to the incoming administration of President-elect Donald J. Trump. Instead, they let the resolution pass.

In anticipation of Obama’s suspected — now confirmed — abstention, members of Congress threatened to de-fund the UN. The U.S. accounts for some 22% of the UN’s budget, supporting a large, comfortable bureaucracy and its various programs.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) issued a statement, warning:

This provocative action by the United Nations is an outrage and must be dealt with sternly and forcefully.

As the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Foreign Operations of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I oversee the United States assistance to the United Nations. The United States is currently responsible for approximately 22 percent of the United Nations total budget.

If the United Nations moves forward with the ill-conceived resolution, I will work to form a bipartisan coalition to suspend or significantly reduce United States assistance to the United Nations.

Samantha Power should have had the "power" to stand up to her bigoted, racist Islamic "boss" and veto the resolution despite what he wanted.

Obama turned into a Christian only because it would help his political career. He has demonstrated many times that he loves islam, not America.

Obama has consistently (his statements aside) shown his antisemtism as has Susan Power. Thankfully he is history.I only would hope that the Jewish community and especially the Hollywood Movie community would recognize the fact that he was lying SOB ad think about that when voting Democratic

I always supported not only defunding the U.N. but getting this organization out of our country. This is costing us too much hard earned tax dollars and we receive nothing for it. Thousands of people from other countries living large in New York City or close by with our help. Maybe our new leader Donald Trump will finish craziness. Israel is only one of the problems with the U.N. Other country spies are being housed under this U.N.name.

Why American Jews supported this anti-Israel president and his incompetent crew is still a mystery to me. World War II is over and Obama is no FDR. The United Nuts is worthless and should be kicked out of US. They have no record of accomplishment when it comes to Middle East. They support the global warming scam. Follow the money these over paid diplomats receive and the anti-Israel fervor. They support terrorists organizations that are intent on destroying Israel.

Can't add one thing to all the great comments already written in response to this TREASONOUS BO REGIME. This doesn't surprise me one bit, Obama and Killary are both traitors to the people they took an oath to protect. Still can't figure out why Nixon was demonized for generations for telling a lie, even when he did do some good things as POTUS such as open the Gateway to China and end the Viet Nam War, then when it comes to liberals and the Marxist Media protecting them, they can actually murder commit treason, and side with the enemy and their punishment is spending over a billion and a half dollars on lavish vacations and running for POTUS.

WOW! Congress found some TESTEES! You're ALL RIGHT! We should have wielded the BIG HAMMER a long time ago. We've been letting the America-Funded UN STEAL from, defecate on and sabotage us for over thirty years. I think some sort of international forum is good, but this buggy has gone WAY far left for THIS REPUBLIC to continue to throw money at. After awhile, spit in the face becomes an ISSUE, and Israel IS our best -- and ONLY -- ally in the Middle East. Obama and Clinton wanted a One-World government. They're SO SMART! They're also traitors and crooks, and I don't know which is actually worse. Bill is a perverted thief, and Hussein is a gay Muslim idealogue -- both bad for America. We need to follow through with this move, and wave bye-bye to the UN. They'll come begging, and then Trump can make the deal.

It is long past time to “Get the U.S. out of the U.N, and the U.N. out of the U.S.”

Evict them all – then claim all their holdings under the Power of Eminent Domain, turning these buildings into housing for homeless military veterans – and all other of New York's homeless.

Let the E.U. be the new home for the ‘Not-so-united Nations.’

The un is nothing more then a group of Islamic terrorist. And we should withdraw our support and kick them out of our country. And Obama is right there with them 100%. Why we'll do the math Islam does that add up.
