All we seem to read or hear from news outlets are stories about some 17-year-old kid or a hooker who has frankly done a great job of promoting herself. If you have any claim or comment that advances the Collectivist movement on their stated goal of leading the United States down “The Road To Tyranny” or you spout some bumper sticker about gun control, the news outlets representing both the left and the right are only to quick to have those stories dominate the airwaves. Meanwhile, in the world, there are incidents that go on reported even though their implications have serious and meaningful consequences.
For instance, because of the much-desired Collectivist welfare system and the open border policies of the Collectivists, Sweden is on the verge of civil war. Hungary, Poland, The Czech Republic, Austria, and other members of the European Union continue to battle with the European Union’s administration in refusing to allow undesirable refugees into their country. These nations have witnessed the results of this foolish program by observing what is happening in France, Germany, Belgium, and the Scandinavian countries. If Americans had a better understanding of the dangers facing any society who has a wide sweeping safety net system and welfare system along with open borders, the Collectivist movement knows the resistance to these policies they are advocating to advance the United States down “The Road To Tyranny” under the Dictatorship of the Proletariat would be much greater and gaining momentum as it is in Europe.
In addition, we finally have an administration that is implementing the the promise of controlling our borders, a promise that was made but never kept by so many previous administrations and members of the Republican Establishment.
Also, the United States is finally reducing its contributions to the United Nations despite the outcry of those very members of the Republican Establishment who ran for office on that very promise. Here is the latest newsworthy story from Nicki Haley who, just like Betsy DeVos, is truly doing what is necessary if the United States is ever to switch from traveling “The Road To Tyranny” to traveling the road to freedom, independence, and liberty.
United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced on Wednesday that America will no longer fund more than 25 percent of the organization’s peacekeeping operations.
Haley told the Security Council, “Peacekeeping is a shared responsibility. All of us have a role to play, and all of us must step up.”
Currently, the US is shouldering roughly 28.5 percent of the UN’s peacekeeping missions. The next-largest contributor is China, which pays 10 percent.
The contribution from the US has already been reduced $570 million from last year, at the insistence of the Trump administration. When that cut was made in June, Haley announced, “We’re only getting started.”
In December, Haley’s team also negotiated a further $285 million cut from US coffers to the UN’s operating budget. At the time, the ambassador issued a statement saying that “The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known. We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked.”
She continued: “In addition to these significant cost savings, we reduced the UN’s bloated management and support functions, bolstered support for key US priorities throughout the world and instilled more discipline and accountability throughout the UN system.”
The Trump administration has not yielded in expressing its frustration with the UN, namely the governing body’s resolution to oppose President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and their handling of finances.
On Tuesday, Haley had further scathing remarks for the UN Security Council for their inaction regarding Syria’s eastern Ghouta region, where innocent citizens have faced devastating casualties.
She blamed the situation on the fact that Russian and Iranian troops were working in conjunction with Syrian forces under the country’s president, Bashar al-Assad.
Haley stated, “This is a travesty. This should be a day of shame for every member of this council, and it should be a lesson about what happens when we focus on fleeting displays of unity, instead of on what’s right,” and added, “History will not be kind when it judges the effectiveness of this council in relieving the suffering of the Syrian people.”
UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock acknowledged the dire circumstances in Syria in the same meeting, saying “The last few months have been some of the worst yet for many civilians inside Syria.”
