The World from The Hill: U.N. funding an early target for House Republicans
thehill.com/news ^ | 01/23/11 05:22 PM ET | Bridget Johnson

Posted on 01/23/2011 3:15:02 PM PST by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!

A key House Republican is quickly pressing forward with her goals to scale back U.S. funding for the United Nations.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told The Hill that oversight would be a key function of the panel, particularly funding to the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) that is "a waste of taxpayer dollars."

Just when I gave up hope. The U. N. needs to be audited and when it is shown they waste money we give them we should cease all funding.

All the money and goods we gave to Haiti just sits. I am sick of the phoney UN. I wish we would cut them off and make our own donations to starving children directly.

I know. I thought this very thing but I wanted some hope today.
The GOP will say they cut them off of millions and in the end we give them billions. I think it is an appeasement so the tea party shuts up.

I would go a lot further.

Not only would I defund the UN completely, I would also resign from the UN as a country and then give the remaining occupants thirty days to move to another country.

Let the UN see if they can solve the world’s problems without us and our money.

The U.S. contributes more to the UN than any other country -- 22 percent of the regular UN budget and 27 percent of the peacekeeping budget.

Time for other countries, like China, to take on more of the burden.

Here's a thought: Since we own the building and the land at the UN building, how about having that our contribution and the rest of the world put up the rest of the money. Or at the least charge them a heavy rent every month.

Defund now - no audit needed.

Spending originates in the house, so all they need to do is not allow it to start.

From the article you linked:

"The administration of President Barack Obama repaid all the money the United States owed the United Nations last year. U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice told reporters on Thursday that Washington pays its U.N. dues "in full and on time."

She said there was an issue of "contested arrears" -- debts that Washington does not agree it owes the United Nations.

"They must be counting contested arrears if it gets to a figure which gets close to anything like that," she said in reference to the $1.2 billion figure cited by Kane.

As the United Nations' single biggest contributor, Washington is responsible for roughly one-quarter of the U.N. peacekeeping budget and slightly less than a quarter of the separate U.N. regular budget."

This is not generally known, but when someone says “UN Headquarters”, everyone says “New York”. The truth is there are THREE others besides NYC: 1) Brussels, Belgium; 2) Geneva, Switzerland, and 3) Nairobi, Kenya.

The current UN building is in huge disrepair. So much so that the UN has been talking about renting empty office spaces around the current structure while it under goes a major overhaul and renovation costing tens of billions of U.S. dollars.

The U.S. needs to defund all its UN operations. Tell all the UN bureaucrats to relocate their offices to their other three headquarters. Give them six months. At seven months, implode the current UN building and tell the City of New York they now have prime development land.

Then, tell the UN to go pound sand. We [America] are forming new alliances with friendly countries of our choice. The corrupt bastards at the UN can pick each other’s pockets, but America's funding of UN incompetence, graft and corruption is over.

Most Outrageous Government Waste

SNIP SNIP EXCERPTS


Dubious government spending schemes abound since bureaucrats play with other people’s money. For example, the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) spent $70,029 to see if the degu, a diurnal South American rodent, can help us better understand jet lag . . . they spent $77,826 to study “Coping with Change in Czechoslovakia” . . . $100,271 to see if volunteering is good for older people . . . $124,910 to reduce “School Phobia” in children . . . $161,913 to study “Israeli reactions to SCUD Attacks during the Gulf War” . . . and $187,042 to study the quality of life in Hawaii.

Over the years, political wrangling twists the most noble-sounding government programs beyond recognition. For example, the Social Security Administration’s $25 billion a year Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. Almost 250,000 children qualify for SSI checks because they can’t participate in “age appropriate activities.” Worse, thousands of prisoners get SSI checks relating to their alleged disabilities—costing taxpayers about $20 million a year.

That’s not all. In Denver, the government reportedly sent $160,000 to recipients at their “official address”—a tavern. A San Francisco addict used his SSI check to buy drugs, which he subsequently sold on the street for a profit. A Van Nuys, California, alcoholic received a $26,000 SSI check, then spent the money on a van and two cars which he subsequently wrecked while driving drunk. Los Angeles SSI recipients reportedly faked mental illness and had a doctor concoct false medical records, so they could pocket $45,000 worth of checks. An estimated 79,000 alcoholics and drug addicts are believed to spend SSI checks—some $360 million annually—on their habits.

Again and again, programs aimed at the poor are captured by well-heeled interest groups. For example, the Commerce Department’s U.S. Travel and Tourism Administration (USTTA) gave away $440,000 in so-called “disaster relief” to Western ski resort operators when there wasn’t much snow.

The Economic Development Administration spent “anti-poverty” funds to help build a $1.2 million football stadium in spiffy Spartanburg, South Carolina. During the summer, it will serve as a practice facility for the National Football League Carolina Panthers, and the rest of the year it will be used by Wofford College, which has a $50 million endowment.

Look at one of the most enduring legacies of Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty”: the Appalachian Regional Commission. It was billed as help for an impoverished region. During the past three decades, this bureaucracy you’ve probably never heard of has spent $6.2 billion, yet the region remains impoverished.

Where did the money go? Two-thirds was spent building 26 highways connecting well-to-do urban centers. The money went to construction workers whose wages are definitely above-average. Despite revolutionary talk in Washington, the Appalachian Regional Commission goes on and on.

Or take the plight of the family farmer. I know you’ve been regaled about wasteful spending on agricultural subsidies, so I’ll just cite a single intriguing example: 1.6 million farm subsidy checks for $1.3 billion, mailed to urban zip codes during the past decade. New York City “farmers” pocketed $7 million during the past decade, Washington, D.C., “farmers” $10 million, Los Angeles “farmers” $10.7 million, Minneapolis “farmers” $48 million, Miami “farmers” $54.5 million, and Phoenix “farmers” $71.5 million. Among those on the take, to the tune of $1.3 million: 47 “farmers” in Beverly Hills, California—one of America’s wealthiest cities.

A lot of government spending is justified as necessary for national security. For instance, maritime subsidies supposedly help maintain a fleet for an emergency. Laws require government agencies to use U.S.-flag vessels which are U.S.-built, U.S.-owned, and U.S.-crewed, costing two to four times the world market price of comparable vessels available elsewhere. When the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Agency for International Development give away surplus grain, they must use U.S.-flag vessels for at least 75 percent of shipments, adding $233 million to the taxpayer burden. The U.S.-flag requirement adds $1.75 billion to the defense budget. Subsidy per maritime job: over $100,000.

The defense budget is larded with waste not because it’s run by bad guys but because it’s big, and bureaucrats are, as always, spending other people’s money. The Pentagon has an “operational support airlift” consisting of some 500 airplanes and 100 helicopters for flying military brass and civilian bureaucrats on 1,800 trips a month—costing taxpayers $380 million a year. Many of the destinations are served by commercial airlines.

Last year, the Pentagon announced it would spend $5.1 million to build a new 18-hole golf course at Andrews Air Force Base in suburban Maryland, which already has two. Golf Digest reported there are 19 military golf courses around Washington, D.C. Why a new golf course? One Pentagon official was quoted as saying “a lot of golf gets played out there. On Saturday mornings, people are standing on top of each other.”

Can It Continue?

How can such outrageous waste go on year after year? Simple: bureaucrats aren’t doling out their money, so they have little incentive to be responsible. Politically connected special interests, who are usually better off than the average taxpayer, seem to get most of the loot.

The most powerful special interest is government itself. In fiscal year 1993, the federal government owned 569,556 vehicles—one for every six full-time employees. Included were 117 limousines. The government’s fleet expanded more than 130,000 vehicles since the Grace Commission called for it to be cut in half more than a decade ago.

I'd never get elected. Too honest. And brutal. And brutally honest. Plus I find the concept of ruling others to be nauseating.

And if by some miracle all the parasites stayed home on election day and I got into office, the first thing I'd do is dissolve 98% of the Federal government, sign an executive order making firearms ownership mandatory, and pull every member of the military back to the continental United States (telling them that before they left wherever they are currently stationed, grab as much loot as they could before they board that C-130 plus offer them $1000 bounty for each Muslim head they pacify) and put them on the border. Alaska doesn't need our help, and screw Hawaii.

Oh, and I'd declare all of Orange County CA to be a live fire practice range, and being a member of the Democrat Party to be an act of espionage to punished with death immediately upon experience of reasonable suspicion.

But thanks for the endorsement.

Considering that of the current budget, 50 PERCENT is wasted through fraud and abuse, perhaps the best way to fix things is chop total expenditures in half and let the bureaucrats justify their existence and spending of other people’s money.

Now that we know who the rats are - the Democrats and RINOS, we can start targeting them and relentlessly exposing them for what they are. We need some Samuel Adams of our day to relentlessly go after the enemies of freedom. We now know that the RINOS are just wolves in sheeps clothing, they call themselves conservatives when it suits their selfish purposes but they only want to get close to us in order to subvert the conservative message. They have been playing this game for decades, enough people have caught on to this that we can do something about it. Another thing, the Democrats were the dominant party for seventy years since FDR. I think that era is finally coming to an end.

The Democrats and RINOS hit the conservatives with a one-two punch each side attacking the conservatives. The RINOS were the false friends while the Democrats were the enemy. Now I believe that Americans are finally getting the understanding that big centralized government is against the good of the people. If today’s conservatives start hammering away at the UN, eventually we will get out.

Remember, years ago, it was revealed that all our donations ever did was sit on the piers in Ethiopia, until the troops came by to steal the grain. Similar to donating to the RNC, we can’t control what happens to our money once it leaves our accounts. We should just donate to credible relief orgs and let the UN learn to live on a budget.

History hints that while international bodies do erode sovereignty, they do serve as a brake to those looking to start major wars.

I was told that among most of the parasite countries that belong to the UN, an ambassadorship to there (or working on the top heavy staffs) is considered a very posh assignment. NYC is considered THE place to go for shopping, eating, sex, and every other depravity known to man. It's a great jump off point for espionage as is industrial or military.

All the more reason to tell this bunch of high rolling freeloaders moved out to Euro or African pastures. Americans would benefit immensely.
