Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said during Tuesday’s Democrat debate in Des Moines, Iowa, that the United States has a duty to “rebuild the United Nations.”During a question focusing on U.S. foreign policy, Sanders stated that it is America’s job to “rebuild the United Nations.”“The American people are sick and tired of endless wars which have cost us trillions of dollars,” Sanders said. “Our job is to rebuild the United Nations and rebuild the State Department, make sure we have the capability of bringing the world together to resolve international conflict diplomatically and stop the endless wars,” he continued.

The United Nations is a horror show. We need to stay in to use our veto in self defense, but stop funding these destroyers and thugs.

The existence of the UN has never prevented a war. It is useless for what it was intended and can't be fixed. It does a poor job at anything it is supposed to do. Get rid of it and move on. The United States and it's allies are the only stabilizing factors in the world.

The One World Government under Marxist Communism has plans for the elimination of 5 to 6 Billion people in order to create their Sustainable World Population. The New World Order of One World Marxist Communism they have been working on for over 100 years. John McShame the Rino, told everyone about this last year. "They have been working toward Marxism for the past 70 years". McShame just didn't know his history as they started working on The One World Marxist Communist Government under Woodrow Wilson in 1913. Politicians gave control of our government to the Federal Reserve which is a private corporation of the worlds largest financial institutions collecting billions of dollars from the taxpayers each year for allowing the treasure department via congress to print money then pay interest on printed money as though the federal reserve actually loaned billions of dollars to the American government which they did not. These financial institutions have over $500 Trillion dollars now. The leadership our called "The Trilateral Commission". They hold meetings every year in highly secured places around the world. Read some historic quotes by the Communist democrats were they are bragging about pulling this criminal enterprise of World Marxist Communism over the eyes of the intelligent constitution loving people with the help of the news media by them keeping it out of the head lines and teachers for spreading the love of socialism and castigating freedom and capitalism as evil. > 'We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto--determination practiced in past centuries.' -- David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991." > 'Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.' [Rockefeller is proud that between 50 to 100 Million Chinese were killed under Mao to institute a Communist Dictatorship Empire] -- David Rockefeller, current head of Rockefeller empire and member (past chairman) of Council on Foreign Relations, is widely recognized as the foremost partisan for world government under the UN. This is what benevolent 'capitalist', Rockefeller is on record as stating in 1973 about Mao Tse--tung: (NY Times 8--10--73)"

The UN needs to be disbanded and removed from NY. When Woodrow Wilson first thought of The League Of Nations, it was really just a way to have all the reps together in one place so they could easily meet in case of some dire conflict. Today, we have Facetime, conference calls, video calls, hotlines...every world leader has the phone number of every other world leader. The UN no longer performs the same function it was created for-it is mostly a haven for spies. Time for it to go the way of the Dodo....extinction.

The UN is just another global racket that needs to be disbanded. Reform is simply not possible. Their objective is to delegitimize national sovereignty and create a government of "elites" for the elites. And if you're interesting enough they'll declare you a World Cultural object and freeze you as a quaint tourist attraction. Thank goodness the cavemen never came up with "preservation" as a great idea.

If it's Bernie's job to rebuild the UN, then Equatorial Guinea would be a fine location for it. One advantage would be that the problem of parking-ticket scofflaws would probably go away. And of course the so-called diplomats would enjoy the nightlife in EG just as much as they do in New York.

Lev Parnas, whom Democrats now cite as a potential witness in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, actually undermined their case against the president in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper that aired Thursday morning. President Trump is accused of having withheld U.S. aid to pressure Ukraine to conduct an investigation into past election interference; and into allegations of wrongdoing by former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who was paid a fortune to sit on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian fossil fuel company widely viewed as being corrupt.For months, Democrats have claimed that President Trump was not interested in an actual investigation,

Democrats are suddenly obsessed with Lev Parnas, the Rudy Giuliani associate who was indicted on federal campaign charges last fall. The Ukrainian-born Parnas was a gopher for Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, who wanted to investigate possible leads in preparing a defense against charges of Russia collusion. Parnas agreed to testify during the House impeachment inquiry, and a federal judge let him hand over documents and text messages last week. But it is not clear Parnas has anything to offer. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is dumping documents, and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow did her best in an interview with Parnas on Wednesday evening.

The Trump administration is moving to strengthen constitutional prayer by extending protections for students who want to pray in public schools. On Thursday, President Trump said the government must never stand between the people and God. He added students are frequently stopped from praying in schools.(Tweet/Video) The new protections will require schools to certify they have no rules conflicting with a student’s right to pray and notify the Education Department of complaints against the right to pray.This marked the first time the Department of Education has updated its guidance on school prayer since 2003. “Today, my administration is issuing strong new guidance to protect religious liberty in our public schools,”

In a bid to solidify his evangelical base, President Donald Trump took steps Thursday to give religious organizations easier access to federal programs and he reaffirmed students' rights to pray in public schools.Under orders from Trump, nine Cabinet departments proposed rules intended to remove “regulatory burdens” on religious organizations participating in federal programs by eliminating a requirement that they refer people to alternative providers upon request. Much of that follows through on an executive order Trump from 2018 that aims to put religious groups on equal footing when competing for federal grants and other funding.

WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that two House chairmen who led President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry will be among the House prosecutors for Trump's Senate trial. They are Democrats Rep. Adam Schiff, chair of the Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Jerry Nadler, chair of the Judiciary Committee. Trump was impeached by the Democratic-led House last month on charges of abuse of power over his pressure on Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden as Trump withheld aid from the country. He was also charged with obstructing Congress’ ensuing probe.

Megan Rapinoe's roaring again. The International Olympic Committee published new rules that prohibit "political, religious or racial propaganda" "at medal ceremonies and Olympic venues," and Rapinoe says she "will not be silenced."
