Obama wants to increase contributions to United Nations by 33 percent


What does a law mean anyway? In 1994 President Clinton signed a law capping the U.S. contributions for peace keeping. But what the heck. With good old Samantha Power at the U.N., what does a law mean anyway. By the way, we  are over $17 trillion in debt. Keep this oldie moldie post in mind:  192 Countries exist in the world. We give Aid to 150 March 14, 2011

There are 192 countries in the world. We give out Aid to 150 of them. This doesn’t include that we have 120 military installations world-wide with hundreds of thousands of troops in an attempt to keep the world at relative peace. This is just what finished the Roman Empire. Can we  not  learn from History? Are we doomed to repeat it?

As you compute your taxes this year, remember how much of your hard-earned money is being given to foreign countries.

 That’s us dishing-out an allowance to 
over 78% of the nations in existence…

Via CNS News:

When U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power testifies before a House Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday,the panel will consider a budget request for international organizations that is 33 percent bigger than last year’s, including a 43 percent hike in U.S. contributions to peacekeeping missions.

The administration’s fiscal year 2015 budget request for the U.N. and other organizations is $4.036 billion, up from $3.031 billion in FY2014. For contributions to peacekeeping missions, it is asking for $2.518 billion, up from $1.765 last year.

The $2.518 billion for peacekeeping amounts to 28.36 percent of the U.N.’s total peacekeeping budget. The U.S. also provides 22 percent of the separate U.N. operating budget. The U.N. has 193 member states.

According to Heritage Foundation scholar Brett Schaefer, President Clinton in 1994 signed a law setting a 25 percent cap on U.S. contributions for U.N. peacekeeping, which at the time were running at around 30 percent.

    As the Obamacare fiasco has repeatedly shown, laws are only as good as our willingness and ability to have them enforced. Meaning, the current abuse of our laws will not be brought back into line unless/until these same abuses are visited upon the Left.

    Hard.

    … Another argument for bringing into this country the third world population, illegal or otherwise. We can keep the money here and feed, clothe, pay their rent, educate their children and give them free healthcare and SNAP cards while cutting out the corrupt despotic middlemen in Africa, Asia and South America. And if they don’t look for work the unemployment rate will drop like a stone. Hmm, maybe I should run for congress.

      A well honed argument for open borders. Makes the most sense.
