UN Just Made An Urgent Warning Of Looming Financial Crisis

Published

on

The United Nations takes in a great deal of money every year. The majority of those funds come from the United States. Keeping United Nations’ forces clothed and armed is expensive. So is funding the organization itself and those who lead it. This year alone, the United States has threatened to significantly cut the number of funds that we are paying the world body. That amount could be cut even further if things don’t change. Nikki Haley has warned of it repeatedly and so has President Trump.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is ringing alarm bells over a looming financial crisis. The UN is running out of money. They are begging their members to pay their fees that are due as the United Nations teeters on a financial cliff. Fox News reported this week that in a letter to UN staff, Guterres stated that he has warned member states of a “troubling financial situation facing the United Nations,” which he says is caused by late payments to the UN by member states. Sounds kind of like NATO to me. “Our cash flow has never been this low so early in the calendar year, and the broader trend is also concerning; we are running out of cash sooner and staying in the red longer,” he said.

Guterres also said that the United Nations will be taking steps to reduce costs immediately. But in ways that do not impact their mission, whatever that is. He will also be proposing to states various steps to strengthen financial stability at the UN. Good luck with that. This crisis does not have anything to do with the United States saying we will be cutting funding this year supposedly. It has to do with member nations not paying the fair share that they owe. However, if the U.S. pulls funding, it definitely won’t help the situation. Even though the U.S. has threatened to reduce or delay our payments to the budget, we haven’t done so yet.

Secretary-General Spokesman Stephane Dujarric told the media Thursday that the issue is “late payments and payments not yet received to the regular budget.” “Late payment has an impact obviously on our cash flow. It may have an impact on our ability to deliver mandates,” he said.

From Fox News:

“However, Hugh Dugan, a former U.S. diplomat at the UN, said that other countries could be mimicking what is perceived as the U.S. backing away from its commitments at the body of diplomacy and international relations.

““A look at the record shows that Trump has continued to fund it at historic levels, chose it to sanction North Korea, and uses it as a platform to defend Israel. However, there is a wide misperception fed by Trump detractors and a combative media that his Administration has walked away from the UN,” Dugan, who is also a professor at Seton Hall University’s School of Diplomacy and International Relations, said.

““Other countries mimic the U.S., and what they hear has led them to go slow on support and check writing,” he said.

“Earlier this year, the U.S. withheld funding to the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA).”

I don’t think blaming the United States for the cash shortfall at the UN is appropriate here. And I highly doubt this is a case of mimicking the U.S. It is more a function of countries overspending and trying to live out socialist tendencies that just don’t work economically. Guterres’ call for members to pay what they owe does mimic the pressure the Trump administration has been putting on countries at both the UN and at NATO to fulfill their commitments. If you are going to belong to the UN, you should pay what you agreed to. Personally, I just don’t think we should belong to the UN period.

At the end of June this year, the amount of money paid by member states for the 2018 assessment stood at around $1.49 billion. At the same time last year, the amount paid to the regular budget was just over $1.70 billion. So far this month, Iraq, Moldova, Japan, Lithuania and Mexico have paid their contributions, leaving the outstanding amount owed for 2018 at nearly $810 million, with 81 States yet to pay. Due to the fall start of the U.S. fiscal year, payments usually come later in the year from the United States.

Speaking to journalists at UN Headquarters, Spokesman Stéphane Dujarric said that the UN fully understands that some member states operate on different fiscal timetables, but unlike in previous years, the cash flow has never been this low so early in the calendar year. He also said the UN does not have much financial flexibility and relies on member states to pay their dues on time and in full. Looks like they are going to have a rough year.

Last Tuesday, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley urged Arab states to provide more funding for Palestinians. “Americans are very generous people. We are humanitarian oriented. And we continue to seek out ways to help the Palestinian people, whose plight is of genuine concern to us,” she said. “But we are not fools. If we extend a hand in friendship and generosity, we do not expect our hand to be bitten. And as we extend our hand, we also expect others to extend theirs as well.” Very well said as usual. We also expect fair treatment at the UN as long as we belong to the world body.

Disgraced DeNiro Tries To Save His Career And Apologizes, Gets Priceless Response From Trump

Published

on

...

* By

Actor Robert De Niro decided to make an apology for ‘idiotic behavior’ and President Trump had a priceless response. De Niro was trying to show his softer side after galavanting at the Tony Awards and rising the crowd with his anti-American hate for Trump and his classic two-word statement of ‘f-ck Trump.’ He surely got an ovation from a crowd of millionaire celebrities who suffer low ratings for their award shows year after year. The response from Trump was simple. It was no response. Trump didn’t seem to care and if he heard about it at all, then he likely brushed it off.

De Niro’s apology wasn’t exactly to Trump, but it was against Trump. De Niro found himself saying sorry to Canada for Trump’s behavior (such as bringing peace among the Korea’s?) and then criticized Trump for the comments he made about Canada. Of course, this was directed toward Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who was recently seen with his fake eyebrow falling off in a viral video.

It sure seems like Robert De Niro really has it out for President Trump and certainly doesn’t seem to be a fan of his. Does De Niro have other motives that might explain his generic apology and his constant badgering of Trump? There just might be a reason for all of this.

This surely isn’t the first time that De Niro went on the offensive side of the mean words!

Daily Mail helped explain more about the De Niro apology.
“Robert De Niro has taken it upon himself and is apologizing to Canadians for the ‘idiotic behavior of my president’ just one day after the actor launched an expletive at Donald Trump at the Tony awards.

De Niro said Monday Trump’s remarks about Canada are a ‘disgrace’ and apologized to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and others who attended the Group of Seven summit of leaders in Canada.

‘I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president,’ De Niro said as the audience of a few dozen cheered.

‘I apologize to Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G7,’ De Niro continued, ‘It’s disgusting.

Speaking after the actor, Toronto Mayor John Tory to say to him, ‘Thank you.’

Trump called Trudeau ‘dishonest’ and ‘weak’ following the summit on Saturday. Trump advisers also ripped Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber.

De Niro made his comments at a groundbreaking for a Nobu hotel in Toronto.

De Niro co-owns the chain, and the Toronto project will feature a restaurant, hotel and apartments that go for seven figures.

He, namesake chef Nobu Matsuhisa and their team used golden shovels to ceremonially break ground on the luxury project.

At the Tony awards, De Niro launched an expletive at Trump and pumped his arms like a boxer for emphasis.

‘F**k Trump’ he told the adoring audience.

Many in the audience stood and cheered, while TV censors quickly bleeped out the offending words.”

It seems like De Niro was using his distaste for Trump to get himself in the headlines again, because it seems very convenient that he was breaking ground at one of his restaurant/hotel projects. How ironic it is that he’s making anti-Trump comments and going viral just as he’s promoting his new business.

Is De Niro using his hatred for Trump to keep himself relevant so that the news and independent media outlets will mention his new projects? Is De Niro trying to use hatred to fuel the growth of his own businesses and save the end of his career in regards to his non-acting projects? That might be the case and the reason for all of De Niro’s constant insults and barrage of attacks that seemingly go unnoticed.

He’s like the male version of Rosie O’Donnell in the sense that they both constantly throw insults at President Trump and most of the time it comes out of nowhere and is unwarranted.

Should President Trump address the situation with Robert De Niro? Or should Trump ignore De Niro and worry about getting his job done as the President?

What would you do in this situation if you were Trump? Write your answers below!

Screaming Dem Mob Confronts McConnell In Restaurant, Man Slams Fists, Throws Food Out Door

Published

Like Trump says, Dems bring mobs, we bring jobs.

Just another example of the left becoming completely unhinged.

McConnell took it all in stride & handled it with class, though, and other diners came to his defense!

Gateway Pundit is reporting:

“Crazed leftists took Maxine Waters’ marching orders and screamed at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) while he was dining with his wife, Elaine Chao at Havana Rumba in Louisville, Kentucky.

According to TMZ, 4 men were berating Mitch McConnell and the main aggressor slammed his fists on the Senator’s table screaming, “Why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave the entire country?”

The left-wing thug also grabbed Mitch McConnell’s doggie bag of leftovers, and chucked it out the door of the restaurant.

Others were screaming, “Ditch Mitch!”

TMZ reported:

The woman who shot the video tells us, before she started recording, the main aggressor slammed his fists down on McConnell’s table, grabbed his doggie bag and threw the food out the door of the restaurant.

The woman says the main gripe seemed to be the Senator’s stance on Social Security and health care. McConnell recently said entitlement programs are the main cause of massive debt. The woman says before she started shooting, the main aggressor was screaming that McConnell was killing people with his views.

McConnell kept his cool and afterward thanked some of his supporters, shaking their hands.

Maxine Waters recently called on Democrats to form a mob to harass Republicans wherever they go.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Maxine Waters said.

Because of Maxine Waters’ call to violence, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, Secretary Nielsen and other Republicans have been chased out of restaurants by angry Democrat mobs.

Vote red all the way down the ticket in Novemeber–we want jobs, not mobs!”

And Fox News said:

A small group of angry diners confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a restaurant Friday night, but were met with calls from other customers to leave the Kentucky Republican alone.

Video obtained by TMZ shows at least one diner berating McConnell on issues such as Social Security at a restaurant in Louisville. The video starts with him yelling at McConnell and arguing with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao — to whom McConnell is married. The outlet reported that four men first confronted McConnell.

“Oh yeh, why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave our entire country,” the protester tells the couple.

As Chao argues with the protester, McConnell appears nonplussed and sips on a drink. But other diners begin yelling at the protester, telling him to “leave him alone” and making shoo-ing gestures.

“They’re going to come for Social Security,” he told the other diners, before appearing to be approached by staff.

According to TMZ, the woman who recorded the incident said the protester slammed his fists on McConnell’s table and threw food out of the restaurant after accusing McConnell of killing people with his views. McConnell reportedly later thanked some of the supporters and shook their hands.

McConnell’s office did not immediately respond to request for comment from Fox News.

The incident marks the latest hounding of a Republican or Trump administration official from a restaurant. Last month Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was forced out of a restaurant by protesters angry at his support of the confirmation of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

McConnell and Chao were confronted by protesters earlier in the year as they left an event at Georgetown University. Chao stood up to the protesters and told them to “leave my husband alone.”

In July, McConnell was confronted by more protesters as he left a restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky. Protesters reportedly yelled “abolish ICE” and “no justice, no peace.”
