Trump: UN needs to fix
´bureaucracy and mismanagement´

Washington Examiner, by Steven Nelson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/18/2017 10:33:54 AM

The United Nations must reduce bureaucracy and focus on results, President Trump said Monday during remarks at a reform meeting. Trump said the U.N. was founded on noble goals, but that "in recent years, the United Nations has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement." "While the United Nations on a regular budget has increased more than 140 percent and its staff has more than doubled since 2000, we are not seeing the results in line with this investment," he said. Trump told U.N. Secretary General António Guterres that he believed blame belonged to his predecessors and that

That isn´t possible. The League of Nations was replaced with the UN, it´s time for the UN to be replaced or disbanded.

The New York Times on Friday released new social media guidelines for its reporters, requiring them to avoid any actions that would lead to perceptions of bias or otherwise damage the paper´s reputation. The new guidelines apply to all social media platforms, public and private, and include stipulations about political objectivity, sharing stories in a one-sided manner, joining partisan groups, and more. The memo states that it only adds further detail to the policy that reporters do not damage the paper´s credibility. "If our journalists are perceived as biased or if they engage in editorializing on social media, that can

WASHINGTON — Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker said Friday he would introduce legislation to fix “major flaws” in the Iran nuclear deal — a step he says will eventually solidify and strengthen the agreement even as President Trump moves to disavow it. The Tennessee Republican’s proposal came as Trump announced that he would not certify Iran’s compliance with the multi-lateral agreement, negotiated in 2015 by the U.S. and five other countries to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. Trump’s move leaves the Iran deal in place — for now — and shifts the spotlight to Congress. Trump asked

As President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump depart the White House the president answers questions from reporters and gathered pool media. President Trump has continued, through sheer will, to establish firm political footing on a series of substantive issues, domestic and international events; and confidently responds to oppositional media constructs from a position of non-partisan common sense. This is OUR president. This is the common sense and practical outlook we voted for. Owning and admitting the downsides; steadfast inside the hurricane of crisis; not pretending every solution will equally benefit. This is a brutally honest president who remains focused

The father of freed Taliban hostage Caitlan Coleman has blamed her Canadian husband for her kidnapping five years ago. Jim Coleman said it was ´unconscionable´ for son-in-law Joshua Boyle to take Caitlan to Kabul, Afghanistan, without telling either of their families when she was five-months pregnant in 2012. ´What I can say is taking your pregnant wife to a very dangerous place, to me, the kind of person that I am, is unconscionable,´ he told Good Morning America on Friday, a day after the pair were rescued along with the three children they had in captivity.

President Trump underscored his administration’s commitment to families and religious freedom Friday, saying that “times have changed ... now they’re changing back.” Trump addressed the Values Voter Summit Friday, marking a milestone as the first sitting president to appear before the group. "In America, we don´t worship government," Trump said. "We worship God." The Values Voter Summit was created in 2006 to “preserve the bedrock values” of traditional marriage, religious liberty, sanctity of life, and limited government “that make our nation strong,” according to the group’s website.Then-candidate Trump spoke at the summit last year, promising to return. “I pledged that

Americans are divided on what we want: the sovereign Republic bequeathed to us, along with liberty and our constitutional form of representative government, or an open-borders one-world socialist "utopia." Thanks to the radical left´s long march through the institutions – especially influential in our public schools and colleges – many young people have eagerly embraced socialism or even communism. But there is one thing I believe we can all agree on: we don´t want an oligarchy. Here´s the rub: we don´t know what an oligarchy looks like up close. Let me give you a few examples.

Here’s How Trump Has Silently

President Donald Trump has surgically dismantled Obamacare over the course of his first year in office, largely under the noses of the American public, as Democrats and members of his party that have spent the last nine months trying to upend the American health care system. Over the course of his first nine months in office, he rolled back funding for a program intended to help individuals navigate the insurance marketplace, signed an executive order to allow for groups to purchase insurance across state lines and stopped federal funding for Obamacare subsidies. Taken in tandem, it appears the administration is

After Thursday’s network evening newscasts feared that President Trump’s executive action curtailing ObamaCare regulations was a threat to Barack Obama’s legacy, on Friday morning, the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning shows launched into full panic mode over “the biggest move to undermine ObamaCare yet” and touted how “Democrats call the move pointless sabotage.” “President Trump’s health care bombshell. The White House immediately ends insurance subsidies for poor Americans, the biggest move to undermine ObamaCare yet,” co-host George Stephanopoulos hysterically warned about another presidential order revoking government subsidies to the health care industry at the top of ABC’s Good Morning America.

Congress is set to consider new legislation that would require Iran to accept tough new conditions on the landmark nuclear deal or face a rash of harsh new economic sanctions aimed at thwarting the Islamic Republic´s continued nuclear buildup, according to a draft of new legislation exclusively viewed by the Washington Free Beacon. On the heels on President Donald Trump´s announcement that he will decertify Iranian compliance with the nuclear agreement, top GOP lawmakers are already working on legislation that would compliment the White House´s announcement and move forward with efforts to harshly penalize Tehran if it does not accept

A day after signing an executive order that offered a small break for consumers, we learned that the White House also plans on stopping the unconstitutional subsidy payments of Obamacare. You will now hear Democrats accusing the president of “sabotaging” the Affordable Care Act (ACA), when in reality, nothing has ever been quite as damaging to Obamacare as Obamacare itself. And the same people who lament the breaking of norms, the end of the constitutional democracy, and all the presidents tweets will now hypocritically demand that these unconstitutional payments continue. For Democrats, following the law as written is now a

President Donald Trump will not re-certify to Congress Iranian compliance with the landmark nuclear deal signed in 2015 under President Barack Obama, but will keep the agreement itself in place. Congress will be urged to pass new “trigger points” to hold the Iranians to account and the Treasury Department will be directed to place additional sanctions on the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a wing of the Iranian military accused of terrorist acts in support of the Iranian regime throughout the region. “The President has come to the conclusion that he cannot certify … that the sanctions relief we

The truth can no longer be ignored: Donald Trump is dangerously unfit to be president and could lead the nation to unthinkable disaster. So what are we going to do about it? The White House “has become an adult day care center,” where the president’s senior aides spend “every single day .?.?. trying to contain him.” That terrifying bit of information was disclosed Sunday by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), whose decision not to run for reelection has freed him to point out that the emperor is indeed naked. “Look, except for a few people, the vast

At first it sounded like hyperbole, the escalation of a Twitter war. But now it’s clear that Bob Corker’s remarkable New York Times interview—in which the Republican senator described the White House as “adult day care” and warned Trump could start World War III—was an inflection point in the Trump presidency. It brought into the open what several people close to the president have recently told me in private: that Trump is “unstable,” “losing a step,” and “unraveling.” The conversation among some of the president’s longtime confidantes, along with the character of some of the leaks emerging from the White House

President Trump will halt subsidy payments to insurers who sell coverage under Obamacare — a move that would deal a critical blow to the program, the White House confirmed Thursday night. “Based on guidance from the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies under Obamacare,” the White House said in a statement. Trump has decided to end the payments — which cost about $7 billion this year — after the GOP failed numerous efforts to repeal Obamacare on Capitol Hill. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi

A National Football League (NFL) player says he would rather lose his job than be forced to stand during the national anthem. “No, I will be done playing football,” Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews tweeted Thursday when asked about the issue, according to ESPN. ESPN reported that WSMV producer Matt Parker asked Matthews whether he would stay in the locker room for the song if the NFL created a rule mandating they stand or face punishment. Matthews tweeted out a response before quickly deleting it and hitting the field for the Titans’ Thursday afternoon practice. The player – who is the team’s leading receiver –

NBC late-night host Seth Meyers on Wednesday night burned bridges with any remaining viewers of his who still support President Trump, telling them to go away and flipping them off. Inspired by Eminem´s anti-Trump freestyle rap at the BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday night, Meyers told Trump supporters to "get off the fence" and pick a side between the president and his show -- which he noted "constantly mocks and denigrates everything about [Trump]." "I know it´s a tough call," the smarmy host continued. "But the time has come to make a decision." He then rapped, "My name is Seth and I´m

No short-term political victory is worth the long-term cultural degradation the president is guaranteeing the GOP. The vast majority of commentary about Donald Trump’s tweets centers on Trump: What do they say about his state of mind? Do they signal a change in American policy? Will he follow through on his threats? Is he a master media manipulator or just angry? Is he playing nine-dimensional chess or is he simply undisciplined and impulsive? I want to focus on another question entirely: What are Trump’s tweets doing to the political character of his Republican supporters? I focus on his tweets because

During an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, portions of which were broadcast on Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s “OutFront,” former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton denounced Harvey Weinstein’s behavior and announced that money she received from him would be part of the 10% of her income she donates to charity every year.

The Fox News headline sums up the issue at hand: "No Obama documents in Obama library? Historians puzzled by Chicago center plans." The article continues, "The Obama Foundation is taking an unconventional approach to the presidential center and library being planned in Chicago. It´s opting to host a digital archive of President Barack Obama´s records, but not keep his hard-copy manuscripts and letters and other documents onsite." The Chicago Tribune broke the story that, to this point, has attracted no major media attention. Its headline raises much the same question Fox News did: "Without archives on site, how will Obama Center benefit
