REPORT: President Trump Tells T-Rex Cut U.N. Funding by 50%…

Earlier today President Trump signed an executive order initiating a full review of all federal departments to include a recommendations within 180 days for which departments and programs can be completely shut down. Almost immediately the Swamp trees begin convulsing spasmodically.

The notification ripples had yet to carry across the swamp water notifying all of the inhabitants when…   Apparently President Trump was not satisfied with the XO instructions alone.  Trump slams down the atomic sledgehammer in an epic budgetary notification to battalion commander T-Rex.

WASHINGTON DC – President Trump’s administration has told the State Department to cut more than 50 percent of U.S. funding to United Nations programs, Foreign Policy reported.

The push for the drastic reductions comes as the White House is scheduled to release its 2018 topline budget proposal Thursday, which is expected to include a 37 percent cut to the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development budgets.

It’s not clear if Trump’s budget plan, from the Office of Management and Budget, would reflect the full extent of Trump’s proposed cuts to the U.N.

[…]  The U.S. spends roughly $10 billion annually on the U.N., and the cuts could have the greatest impact on peacekeeping, the U.N. development program and UNICEF, which are funded by State’s Bureau of International Organization Affairs. 

The fate of other popular programs, like the World Food Programme and U.N. refugee operations, are less clear. The World Food Programme’s funding comes from the Department of Agriculture. 

The magazine said it confirmed the potential cuts with three sources; one said the administration is considering cutting humanitarian aid programs by 36 percent.

Richard Gowan, a U.N. expert at the European Council on Foreign Relations, said the alterations would spark “chaos” if true.  (read more)

Oh noes, not chaos upon the EU Council on Foreign Relations…  quick, call Bono and Brangelina.. what?.. not together, well call Geldof then… and Branson, yes Branson; someone, anyone. Heck, find that old number for Sally Struthers…. Oh, and Gwyneth Paltrow too… Hurry!

“Oh, wheeee… yes, yes, we love Sally Struthers!”

How can that bad man cut U.N. funding by 50% and still expect us to promote the international CNN Heroes Campaign?

My God Man, have you no decency?

    • I have donated to UNICEF since I was 5 years old, more than 1/2 century ago, yeah how much good have they done??? Who what got all that money so much of us sent? Why are their nations no better? So many good charities that have sent money to third world nations, why are they not better? We have built water wells, schools, hospitals etc…why are their living conditions not better, we have planted fields for food, and yet they starve! I was in the Middle East for about 5 years, 30 years ago, there was the UNRWA and where did that money go? Who is rich, who is poor, I was part of another charity and the International Red cross, sure we saved lives and yet those nations being destroyed, then rebuilt and the same people remain in poverty and only certain people succeeded, guess who they are-yep-those in power. I do not know about you, but I resent my tax dollars going to the elitists, the terror brokers, they live in their million dollar mansions, while many of their people live in corrugated tin huts with the bare, bare minimum. I am so glad and so grateful for my President Trump to have the common sense to STOP giving them money! Remember when Reagan was President and Italy had that Earthquake, Reagan was smart they bought food, coffins and sent it to Italy instead of money, because he knew where that money would have gone, and if I remember correctly, he too refused to pay for the UN, only when Clinton came in -he folded and gave the UN money, even stupidly paid back for the years Reagan did not pay. Thank God for President Trump, I am not a selfish person at all, I believe in giving, but to the RIGHT causes and responsible causes!

        Check out all our food banks here at home. Trace where it goes and to whom. Organized charities, religious or otherwise, need very, very tight controls. The non profiits, playing with others money, are historically not good stewards. We believe that acting locally usually brings desired outcomes to those who are truly in need. We pray for God to show us who is in need. It is truly amazing how it works.

      • I also remember 55 years ago when Halloween was “Trick or Treat for UNICEF” and we collected dimes and nickels in a UNICEF cup. Remember all that money that was donated to Haiti and yet the people still live in cardboard boxes, but Chelsea Clinton had a million dollar wedding. All of those third world countries have the same things in common, plenty of charity money comes in, the people are still poor and starving and the leaders are rich. I’m all for Hollywood and all those wealthy people who told Barrack Husian Obama they would be happy to pay more than their fair share in taxes to step up and fund the programs. Taxpayers should be able to choose the charities they donate to.

      In many places, helping starving women and kids just perpetuates the problem of people having far more kids than they can feed on lands which cannot sustain the rapidly growing population. Which just creates a bigger problem of people ‘in need’ we’re supposed to ‘support’. All the while, the middle classes in Western nations often can’t afford to have even replacement numbers of children.

        This. Every corrupt third world bureaucracy takes more than a nibble out of these funds. The relief that does make it to the people, is directed to the locations which give the host government the most leverage.

        Much like our government propping up failed banks and broken healthcare systems, this foreign aid merely extends the rule of regimes that have no interest in the betterment of their people.

          Usually, the Christian ministries who have been in those countries for years know exactly how to get the donations to the intended recipients, and stretch those funds as far as possible. They know the territory, and are used to working effectively on a shoestring, and doing it honestly. I give to those. But I no longer give to those that feed people and will not help with birth control.

    Most of the countries in the UN despise the United States. They ridicule our country for being so terrible, but then they routinely ignore gross human rights violations in other countries.

    The United Nations is a wannabe one world government. It is amazing just how many people actually believe that the UN has legal authority over the whole world.

    The USA is a sovereign nation. The UN has no power over us whatsoever — other than what we voluntarily turn over to them. I honestly do not understand why this point gets brought up.

      The UN is a failed, globalist anachronism and a professional politician’s dream come true. Harry Truman used up ALL of his testosterone on the decision to use the A-bomb on Japan, and his “police action” in Korea was wrapped in a UN cloak so as to avoid as much individual responsibility as possible. The fact that Korea remains a hot mess today is proof that the UN is incapable of solving ANY of the world’s problems. Any monies spent on the UN could be better spent elsewhere, like paying down the national debt.

    If the United States government reduces its expenditure upon the UN, then, either, the cost saving should be disbursed to US taxpayers, or, the money should be spent on programs, judged more important by the government.

    However, it may be possible for the US government to set up a fund, financed entirely by voluntary contributions from private individuals, for the sole purpose of funding the UN and its invaluable services to the people of the world.

    If the money is no longer extorted from tax-payers, these same tax-payers would still have the right to spend their own money, as they see fit.

    Progressives, who are sympathetic to the UN and its programs should not be deprived of their fundamental right to spend their own money, as they please, provided that they are not financing crime or inciting or facilitating violence.

    I think that if the government were to create a mechanism for private individuals to voluntarily contribute towards the UN, then progressives would be individually empowered to continue their personal support for UN programs and learn valuable lessons upon how to prioritize utilization of finite resources, as well as identifying how their objectives can be fulfilled in the most cost-effective manner.

    Since, progressives form about one third to one half of the US population, it should be confidently assumed that if a suitable venue for donating money was created, then the actual cut in UN funding, would be only one half to two thirds of that proposed by Rex Tillerson, since these progressives, at least, would voluntarily spend their own money on such an important cause as financing the UN.

    The only actual reduction in the UN budget would derive from people who hitherto had their money extorted from them, to be spent upon causes which they may not support and who now were no longer subject to such compulsion, as well as from hypocrites, who are prepared to support spending money extorted from other people, but not their own money.

    The UN has become an Islamist Propaganda Organization – ignoring the human rights abuses of Mohammedans while castigating Israel for existing and defending itself from its illegal occupiers.

    By international agreement the original Jewish Palestine was reduced by over 70% – creating Jewish Palestine and Arab Palestine. West Bank and Gaza are illegally occupied by Arabs who invaded. They are permitted to camp there due to a cease fire/armistice agreement.

    This is the internationally agreed upon legal 2 State Solution since 1922:

    Problem is – the Islamists/Mohammedans do not want the Jews to have any land. Or even exist.
    The Moslems sided with the Nazis and lost. Let them all go back to Saudi Arabia where they belong.

      There you go again, georgiafl, telling the truth. Thanks.

      If I may add . . .

      “Palestine” derives from the Roman word for the Near East land mass and it is derived from the name of the Biblical land of the Phillistines, the arch-enemy of the Jews who dwelled adjacent to them. The Romans chose the name as an additional insult to the Jews after defeating them in 68 CE.

      (BTW, other insults off the Romans included cutting down all trees in the Land of Israel and plowing tons of salt into its earth to make it unproductive.)

      Until 1948, anyone living in Palestine– Jew and Arab — was referred to as a “Palestinian.”

      The Arabs usurped the word “Palestinian” sometime after WW2 to push their delusional nationalist claim to the Land of Israel. They actually invented an entire nation out of thin air.

      It’s amazing what you can get away with if you have the world’s media in your back pocket (and on your payroll)!

    What we Christians give in foreign aid, through charities we know and trust, is far more than what the United States gives. Not a lot of people realize this.

    Crossing that line and deciding to tithe is something we all really need to consider. Each of us can get a budget on paper and adjust it to where we each live off of ten percent less. Develop a written monthly budget and get 10% for your home church.

    You will flip yourself from hoping for opportunities to get an easy dollar to opportunities to give money and time. In short, this giving strategy is one of the ways to shift your world view to be more Christ-like.

    Ever since I began tithing, each year my “charitable contributions” itemized deductions part of my tax return has been greater than what I pay that year in federal taxes. IOW: I give several thousand to the fed government to cover all of what the government does, and give even more to charitable efforts. –For each of us, what we can and do give out of our own pocket can dwarf the federal government tax revenue. Think about that. –The Communists try to tell everyone that Christians are stingy and uncaring, but the truth is: it is the progressives. There is a book: “Who Really Cares,” that shows that church-attending conservatives give the most – to church but other charities as well, and across all income levels.
