On January 3rd 2016 H.R. 193 or better known as the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017 was introduced by Representative Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) and a coalition of liberty-minded lawmakers. The bill is online and can be seen here.
If H.R. 193 is approved, the legislation would repeal the UN Participation Act of 1945, which when signed authorized the United States involvement with the United Nations and began the U.S. government’s mission to serve the United Nations board of directors. This bill would terminate U.S. membership in the United Nations (U.N.), and that includes any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body. Which includes UNESCO, the World Health Organization, the UN Environment Program (UNEP) and the UN’S HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL, which is a joke considering Saudi Arabia is the head of the council, and many more. This would also end all the United States involvement in any and all United Nations conventions and agreements. No more hard earned U.S. taxpayer money going to the corrupt one world order driven global cabal known as the United Nations.
Speaking of saving the taxpayers money, if this proposed bill is passed it would end all funding to the United Nations and its agencies it would be an estimated savings to the American taxpayers as high as $10 billion per year with the potential of saving taxpayers even more. This legislation would also prohibit any and all United States military involvement in any of the so-called UN peacekeeping missions. Also this would keep any U.S. troops from being forced to serve under UN command.
In a press release, during the last congress session, by the bill’s chief sponsor Alabama Rep. Mike Rogers explained what the reasons why he and several of his constituents in East Alabama wants to end the United States government participation in the United Nations immediately. Congressman Rogers said the following:
“The U.N. continues to prove it’s an inefficient bureaucracy and a complete waste of American tax dollars.
Although the United States makes up almost a quarter of the U.N.’s annual budget, the U.N. has attempted a number of actions that attack our rights as U.S. citizens.
To name a few, these initiatives include actions like the Law of the Sea Treaty, which would subject our country to internationally-based environmental mandates, costing American businesses more money, or the U.N.’s work to re-establish an international regulation regime on global warming which would heavily target our fossil fuels.
The U.N. has also offered a potential Arms Trade Treaty which would threaten our Second Amendment rights and impose regulations on our gun manufacturers, who are already facing regulations and pressure from the Obama Administration.”
These concerns that are expressed by Congressman Rogers echo the widespread concerns about the United Nations that are expressed across the United States and rest of the world.
