BOOM! Dr. Krauthammer SLAMS the United Nations and has the BEST IDEA EVER.
From your lips to God’s ears, Dr. Krauthammer!
Sen. Lindsey Graham will propose a measure to pull US funding for the United Nations unless the UN Security Council repeals the resolution it passed condemning Israeli settlements.
“It’s that important to me,” he told CNN. “This is a road we haven’t gone down before. If you can’t show the American people that international organizations can be more responsible, there is going to be a break. And I am going to lead that break.”
“I will do everything in my power, working with the new administration and Congress, to leave no doubt about where America stands when it comes to the peace process and where we stand with the only true democracy in the Middle East, Israel,” Graham added. He later told CNN’s Dana Bash that US funding accounts for 22% of the UN’s budget.
The United States on Friday allowed a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlement construction to be adopted, defying significant pressure from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government in alliance with President-elect Donald Trump.
The Security Council approved the resolution with 14 votes, with the US abstaining.
Trump soon after tweeted, “things will be different after Jan. 20th,” and on Friday, a senior Trump transition official told CNN the transition team was “all hands on deck” in working to kill the UN resolution.
Graham issued a statement after the vote, harshly criticizing the Obama administration for abstaining.
“The Obama-Kerry foreign policy has gone from naïve and foolish to flat-out reckless. With friends like these, Israel doesn’t need any enemies,” he said. “I anticipate this vote will create a backlash in Congress against the United Nations. The organization is increasingly viewed as anti-Semitic and seems to have lost all sense of proportionality.”
Graham traveled to New York last week to discuss the resolution with António Guterres, the next UN Secretary General, and he spent the past week lobbying members of the Security Council not to support the UN vote.

Watch Israel has info showing the Obama Administration colluded with the Palestinians and pushed for the passing of the resolution:
Why are we still a part of this sham?
Why do we fund it?
It’s a total disaster.
The United Nations seems to be just a platform for anti-Israeli sentiment.
They have had Israel as their preferred target for years and have not ceased in their heavy-handed treatment of the small, Jewish state.
It’s an utter joke.
When Canada lost its seat at the UN Security Council some years ago, it was because the country was under the leadership of a Conservative Prime Minister who was a staunch supporter of Israel.
Conservatives, and anyone willing to support Israel are not welcome at the UN. (Unless you go on an apology tour and cover about a quarter of their funding.)
It’s time this thing was ditched.
And, yes, it is prime real estate.
Trump could build some really nice condos there.
Wouldn’t that just stick it to the UN?
What do you think?
