While Americans are preparing to get together with friends and family over the Thanksgiving holiday, Republicans and Democrats are still meeting behind closed doors to negotiate a spending bill "compromise."
Democrats have loaded their spending bills with tons of "poison pill amendments" designed to roll back Trump's policies and stop him from implementing his agenda. The Left knows they won't be able to get everything they want. But even if the GOP meets them in the middle, they will have gotten most of what they want through.
At the top of the Left's wish list is their plan to restore all funding to the United Nations.
It is no secret that Barack Obama relied on the UN to push his agenda through. When Congress refused to pas Obama's environmental, gun control, and immigration policies, he turned to the United Nations to implement it. And when Congress refused to fund it, Obama dipped into the government's discretionary funds to send the United Nations billions.
When Trump took over, he put a stop to all of it. He canceled the State Department's involvement in the UN's Small Arms Trade Treaty, preventing the UN from trying to create a registry of American gun owners. Trump also pulled out of the UN's Migration Pact, stopping the United Nations from sending unvetted refugees and illegal aliens into the US. Trump also formally began the process of withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement, a treaty that Obama unconstitutionally signed without Congressional approval.
Trump ran on a promise to put America First and he delivered. But now Congressional Democrats are pushing a bill that would restore all of this UN funding and drag us back into the Obama years!
Trump has cut so much from the UN that they have actually been thrown into a budget crisis. For two months, the UN Headquarters Building has been closed on weekends because they don't have the funds to keep the lights on. Trump cut over 1.2 billion from the UN's budget and forced the United Nations to close its doors two days a week.
But if Democrats get their way, all of that funding would be restored. The Left's bill is called H.R. 2839, the State Department, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act. This bill provides the funding for all of the countries foreign policy programs.
And throughout the entire bill, Democrats have slipped in amendments designed to stop Trump from defunding the UN and rolling back Obama's unconstitutional policies.
Take the Paris Climate Treaty as an example. Obama signed it in complete violation of the Constitution's treaty clause, raided the Treasury to give the UN billions, and implemented the treaty's terms by executive order. Trump put a stop to all of this and, at the beginning of this month, sent the first of two formal notices to the United Nations in preparation for our withdrawal from the treaty. Once the second letter is sent next November, Obama's unconstitutional treaty with the UN will be officially dead.
But tucked away in H.R. 2839 is a provision that would block Trump from sending that final notice.
Section 7060(b)(1)(D) stipulates that "None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act, or prior Acts making appropriations for the Department of State, foreign operations, and related programs, may be used to provide formal notification under Article 28 of the Paris Agreement of the withdrawal of the United States from such Agreement."
This one sentence would make it illegal for Trump to finish the withdrawal process. Even though Obama violated the Constitution when he signed it, this radical amendment would make Obama's signature permanent. The next section in the bill restores the billions in funding that Obama promised to give the United Nations to help them impose the treaty on Americans…
Democrats promised that they would stop Trump from rolling back the Obama-UN climate treaty. This is how they plan to do it.
And for Republicans, this issue isn't even on their agenda. The GOP didn't fight back when Obama bypassed Congress and surrendered our sovereignty to the United Nations in the first place. It is no surprise that they are also okay with letting Democrats save it.
Make no mistake, that is what is at stake here. If the GOP lets Democrats push this through, then the Obama administration's surrender to the United Nations would be complete!
Now that Thanksgiving is upon us, I am reminded of just how thankful I am for the Trump Presidency. Donald Trump ran on the promise to revoke all of these Obama era policies, and he is delivering on those promises.
President Trump has cut so much from the UN, they have been stuck in a budget crisis for two months teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. And everywhere Obama collaborated with the UN to impose his agenda on the American people, Trump is rolling those policies back.
But if the Democrats get this bill through, it is all over. If the GOP caves to their demands, not only would the UN get all of their funding — your taxd ollars — back, but the government would be forced to readopt Obama's most radical policies. Gun control, immigration, the radical climate change treaty, and foreign aid… it is all in the bill.
And the GOP is caving to all of it.
If you care about stopping the Left from surrendering our sovereignty to the UN, you must fight back right now before it's too late!
Pull the plug on the UN!
