The president puts the U.N. on notice; Fox News contributor provides insight on ‘Hannity’
Excerpt from September 18, 2017 President Trump’s speech to the United Nations:
…Yet 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 by 140 percent, and its staff has more than doubled since 2000, we are not seeing the results in line with this investment. But I know that under the Secretary General, that’s changing and it’s changing fast. And we’ve seen it.
That’s why we commend the Secretary General and his call for the United Nations to focus more on people and less on bureaucracy. We seek a United Nations that regains the trust of the people around the world. In order to achieve this, the United Nations must hold every level of management accountable, protect whistle-blowers and focus on results rather than on process.
To honor the people of our nations, we must ensure that no one and no member state shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden, and that’s militarily or financially. We also ask that every peacekeeping mission have clearly defined goals and metrics for evaluating success. They deserve to see the value in the United Nations, and it is our job to show it to them.
We encourage the Secretary General to fully use his authority to cut through the bureaucracy, reform outdated systems, and make firm decisions to advance the U.N.’s core mission. Further, we encourage all member states to look at ways to take bold stands at the United Nations with an eye toward changing business as usual and not being beholden to ways of the past which were not working.

While speaking before the United Nations may have opened a new line of change actions, I have to agree with Ambassador Bolton who has been through many years of dealing with the “globalist machine”. Their own scandals and their determined efforts to dictate state policies across the globe have done little to recommend them and a lot to create more harm than good.
The United States can no longer afford the burden financially, militarily, nor politically to continue to prop up the outrageous actions of an assembly that sees us as their golden credit card with unlimited resources.
The UN was never originally forged to continue to this point. It was meant to be a humanitarian and economic assistance to rebuild nations after World War II and should have been held in check by a sunset clause. That the UN assembly and all its parts have found ways to remain relevant and even grow so large and demanding is dangerous.
They continued to curry favor with the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation even on the general election day. On that day, they quietly met to agree on fast tracking their globalist agenda if she was elected. Thank goodness she wasn’t. I bet a fly on the wall in UN chambers was able treated to the view of a huge human meltdown. In one press conference Hillary gave, I distinctly remember the media pouncing because she let “artfully” slip that the UN gave DC its orders.
That they are ineffective in bringing about cooperation and negotiations through sanctions and arbitration is painfully obvious.
That they have been maneuvering to interfere in US politics and attempting to undermine our constitution with a globalist new world order attitude is intolerable.
That they expect us, or indeed any country, to quietly submit to their demands and their attempts at governing entire nations across the world as a one world governing body means they have stepped far over the line in the sand and need disbanded.
Sounds to me like the UN may need to completely downsize and rethink their role in world politics at a minimum. This time a clear explanation of their purpose and their rights as well as a sunset clause needs to be firmly established.
