GOP lawmakers Introduce Bill For U.S. To Withdraw From The UN

By Earnest Jones , The Goldwater · 01-23-2017

The House of Representatives received a bill that was introduced early January, among the many things that the bill calls for, it's important to note that it calls for the United States to withdraw from the United Nations. The bill was sponsored by Senator Mike Rogers, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act (aka H.R. 193) was previously introduced by the Alabama senator to no avail back in 2015 (then H.R.1205), he cited the various reasons for the bill which included spending waste to enabling an intercontinental "dictators' club,'' some say that it sounded like a manuscript that had been left by Ann M. Martin in her desk.

Looking back to what happened in the past, the UN was established in the post-World War 2 as an Allied Forces' initiative to deter any future continental takeovers and/or genocides. However, owing to the fact that the West lacks a perfect record with regard to the latter, although they know very well that they ought to try. However, Rogers is of a different opinion, he argues that American taxpayers should not fund an international organization that works against America's interests around the globe. The Senator posed this great question in June of 2015. Adding that this was the time to protect and restore American sovereignty and withdraw from the United Nations.

Two years later, Rogers has anti-globalist allies in high places. During Friday's inaugural speech from President Trump, he hinted that it was necessary for the U.S. to turn its back on the world, this echoed his previous campaign sentiments as he referred to dismantling the NATO. Despite many bill trackers assumption that it has a very little chance to pass, if it did, the United Nations Headquarters would have to move out of the U.S.

If the U.S. abandons the UN, this would result in our bailing on peacekeeping missions as well as participation in the World Health Organization. However, the bill would take effect two years after being passed.
