GOP lawmakers introduce bill for U.S. to withdraw from the UN In Politics by Jordan Freiman / January 22, 2017 EMAIL SHARE TWEET

A bill was introduced to the House of Representatives in early January that, among other things, calls for the United States to withdraw from the United Nations. Sponsored by Senator Mike Rogers, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act (aka H.R. 193) had been previously introduced by the Alabama senator to no avail back in 2015 (then H.R. 1205), when he cited reasons ranging from spending waste to enabling an intercontinental “dictators’ club,” which sounds like a manuscript Ann M. Martin decided to leave in her desk drawer.

Anyway, keep in mind that the UN was established post-World War II as an the Allied Forces’ initiative to deter any future continental takeovers and/or genocides. Granted, the West doesn’t have a perfect record with regard to the latter, but but they know they gotta try. Rogers does not think so. “Why should the American taxpayer bankroll an international organization that works against America’s interests around the world?” the senator asked in June of 2015. “The time is now to restore and protect American sovereignty and get out of the United Nations.”
