Rape, sex trafficking and the spread of disease on the U.N.’s watch

There was a gift you may have missed. On Christmas Eve, Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, announced a sizeable cut for the U.N. operating budget to the tune of $285 million dollars. That sounds like a lot, and it’s a good start, but that’s all it is. Ambassador Haley called the cut “a step in the right direction,” and implied there would be more to come.

For perspective, The New York Times reports, “[T]he United States is responsible for 22 percent of the United Nations operating budget, the largest contribution. It paid about $1.2 billion of the 2016-2017 budget of $5.4 billion. The United States also is the largest single financial contributor, at 28.5 percent, to a separate budget for United Nations peacekeeping operations, which totals $6.8 billion in the 2017-2018 budget finalized in June.”

    Funding this cesspool is madness.

    I would have preferred if the Trump Administration had just done the UN fat cutting in one fell swoop with a MOAB, rather than a bit at a time with budget cuts.

    Let those who use and abuse the UN pick up the tab.

    Stupid neocon whore – Nimrata Haley – got pranked by Russian comedians:

    Nikki Haley Pranked By Russian Comedians: “Putin Absolutely Meddled In The Binomo Election!”

    Watch the video beginning at 11:00 mark when Haley agrees with the Russian impostors that “Putin Absolutely Meddled in the Binomo election”.

    Of course there has been zero coverage in the MSM over this embarrassing performance by the idiot Haley. The MSM is building up Haley as a “superstar” to challenge Trump. Haley is being hailed as a future first female president after her strong support of Israel.

    A better way would be to shoot every 10th staffer of every country that voted against.

    A den of corruption, greed and graft. End it. It serves only the diplomats that get appointed to that putrid organization.
