A Great Reckoning is Visible – U.N. Vote Against America Begins End of U.N. in New York…

Go ahead and mark the date on the calendar, you’ll remember this day. Earlier today the United Nations voted in favor of a nonbinding resolution declaring President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital “null and void.”

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley delivered remarks noting the likely consequence prior to the vote taking place.  [Full transcript and video below] Believe me, this will not end well for the U.N:

.

The entire enterprise of the U.N. is supported by slightly less than half of all Americans. The modern irrelevance of (and general antagonism within) the U.N. has been a less visible but decades-long discussion throughout most political circles.

It is doubtful the U.N. realizes the consequential difference of this moment with President Donald Trump at the helm of commonsense U.S. foreign policy.

In our lifetime few figures represent the level of righteous American swagger as seen carried by President Donald Trump. He is not beholden to traditional diplomatic circular triple-speak; and he carries the desire to eliminate anything he views as against American interests. This is a critical point most often overlooked.

President Trump does not want to correct policy that is against U.S. interests. President Trump desires to DESTROY policy that is against U.S. interests. There is a profound difference. Put your national interests on the other side of the “U.S. best interest” equation; and there is no limit to the pain President Trump is willing to inflict upon your decision. FACT.

From President Trump’s stewardship viewpoint: America will give respect and America deserves respect.

Violate that simple principle, without permission from his administration to do so, and POTUS Trump will methodically, strategically, heck, often personally, crush that opponent with severe and extreme economic prejudice.

[Transcript] Thank you, Mr. President.

To its shame, the United Nations has long been a hostile place for the state of Israel. Both the current and the previous Secretary-Generals have objected to the UN’s disproportionate focus on Israel. It’s a wrong that undermines the credibility of this institution, and that in turn is harmful for the entire world.

I’ve often wondered why, in the face of such hostility, Israel has chosen to remain a member of this body. And then I remember that Israel has chosen to remain in this institution because it’s important to stand up for yourself. Israel must stand up for its own survival as a nation; but it also stands up for the ideals of freedom and human dignity that the United Nations is supposed to be about.

Standing here today, being forced to defend sovereignty and the integrity of my country – the United States of America – many of the same thoughts have come to mind. The United States is by far the single largest contributor to the United Nations and its agencies. We do this, in part, in order to advance our values and our interests. When that happens, our participation in the UN produces great good for the world. Together we feed, clothe, and educate desperate people. We nurture and sustain fragile peace in conflict areas throughout the world. And we hold outlaw regimes accountable. We do this because it represents who we are. It is our American way.

But we’ll be honest with you. When we make generous contributions to the UN, we also have a legitimate expectation that our good will is recognized and respected. When a nation is singled out for attack in this organization, that nation is disrespected. What’s more, that nation is asked to pay for the “privilege” of being disrespected.

In the case of the United States, we are asked to pay more than anyone else for that dubious privilege. Unlike in some UN member countries, the United States government is answerable to its people. As such, we have an obligation to acknowledge when our political and financial capital is being poorly spent.

We have an obligation to demand more for our investment. And if our investment fails, we have an obligation to spend our resources in more productive ways. Those are the thoughts that come to mind when we consider the resolution before us today.

The arguments about the President’s decision to move the American embassy to Jerusalem have already been made. They are by now well known. The decision was in accordance to U.S. law dating back to 1995, and it’s position has been repeatedly endorsed by the American people ever since. The decision does not prejudge any final status issues, including Jerusalem’s boundaries. The decision does not preclude a two-state solution, if the parties agree to that. The decision does nothing to harm peace efforts. Rather, the President’s decision reflects the will of the American people and our right as a nation to choose the location of our embassy. There is no need to describe it further.

Instead, there is a larger point to make. The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly for the very act of exercising our right as a sovereign nation. We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations. And we will remember it when so many countries come calling on us, as they so often do, to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit.

America will put our embassy in Jerusalem. That is what the American people want us to do, and it is the right thing to do. No vote in the United Nations will make any difference on that.

But this vote will make a difference on how Americans look at the UN and on how we look at countries who disrespect us in the UN. And this vote will be remembered.

Thank you.

    It’s past time for the world to stop bashing Israel!!!

    The UN has become a leftist, Islamist propaganda organization.

    They ignore horrific human rights abuse everywhere in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, but point fingers at Israel and the US.

    The UN is utterly disgraceful.

    Sundance is correct ~ the time IS now!!! A large majority of UN nations have just crucified their institution! Now IS the time for DJT/USA to reduce US contributions to this lawless agency, AND instruct the agency to move its headquarters out of the USA within the next five years!!! Maintain membership for the same reasons as does Israel, but reduce USA financial largess and remove the UN headquarters ANYWHERE outside the borders of the United States of America!!!

            AGREE! 1 year maximum! But in reality, 2 to 3 year is something that if this were to happen would be more in line with providing a reasonable political optic where such a decision would garner a very large controversy world wide and the PR campaign of such a monumental decision would have to be managed to quell it’s detractors. A lot of feathers will be ruffled as a result, and I can’t imagine many of the globalist cabal will go quietly, but it does need to happen!

      And during the two-year, five-year, or whatever interim period before relocation out of the US entirely, the UN temporary headquarters (and its support jobs) should be moved to an isolated spot in the Midwest.

      The UN has several huge buildings throughout the world. NY is just a small part of their real estate. Don’t fool yourself…they are well funded by any person or group that hates this country, The United States of America. They do hate that the government must answer to the people i.e. electorate. The UN has long pushed for our government to shred the constitution and stop allowing it’s citizens to be armed. That is the truth and the only president who bought into this UN desire 100% was Obama. Several others over the past 34 years have danced with the UN but didn’t go full war against the people but Obama.

    There’s a yuge flip side if President Trump pulls funding from these UNgrateful nations. Those that called for this emergency meeting and vote were none other than Arab and Muslim nations. They will fill the void that Trump creates with their oil money. They will demand that these indebted nations observe sharia and convert to Islam.

    That will further fulfill the prophecy of the fourth horse of the Apocalypse in Revelation 6:7-8.

    The Western European nations (U.K., Germany, France, Belgium, Austria, Spain, Greece, Italy) that voted against the U.S. have one problem in common: Muslims.
    I think those nations are terrified of a Muslim backlash in their streets. So, to keep the peace, they voted against the U.S.
    This is where we see that Islam is already controlling them.

      Please include Canada in this list!
      We have Muslims in our Gov’t also, & our PM has spent time in Mosques here in Canada, vacationed with Muslims, taken Bribes from Muslims, paid $10 million CDN to a Muslim terrorist (before the US soldier’s family could get any of the Muslim’s settlement via the US Justice System). The corrupt MSM here in Canada support him, because IMO the Canadian Gov’t & the MSM are afraid of the Muslims, just like they are in most European Countries.
      And, by Justin Trudeau “petulantly” refusing to vote in the UN, your PDJT will look at this the same way I would look at it. I would look at it as being a “Pussy Leader” of a country that took the easy way out, of saying I support you or I do not support you on your decision to move your Embassy.
      Just another reason for your PDJT to cancel the NAFTA!

      People should understand, the UN was established to promote the Global World Order. Unbelievable? These people have had this agenda for a very long time. Handed down from father to son, son to daughter.. each generation getting more and more power and imbedded with the same philosophy. World Goverenance. Elimination of nationhood.

      They were are on the verge of accomplishing all. Britian gone…Western Europe gone, most of South America, gone…The United States almost gone..This did not happen in 10 years or 20. The plan has been in place since inception.

      When a person or institution is inherently evil and they know it, they will do anything, but they also do have another tendency. Their pride has them make “alot” of mistakes.

      Get rid of the UN. It is useless. If needed countries can do the same thing. Creating deals.

    Headline on Drudge-UN TURNS ON TRUMP; Declares USA decree on Jerusalem ‘null and void’… JohnBrennan posted here “Trump Admin threat to retaliate against nations that exercise sovereign right in UN to oppose US position on Jerusalem is beyond outrageous. Shows @realDonaldTrump expects blind loyalty and subservience from everyone—qualities usually found in narcissistic, vengeful autocrats” is right, it’s about sovereignty, OUR sovereignty. Our policies come from Washington, not Moscow, Berlin or Turtle Bay. Our President is not vindictive, Comey and Yates might have kept their jobs if they were willing to work with the new boss, but we are not obliged to be suckers and give of our blood and cash to bail out ungrateful countries who do not respect us, and don’t even take the trouble to defend themselves let alone join us in our endeavors to preserve a free world. Between Muslem Europe and the Russian Bear we have no friends and don’t have to get involved. As for the UN, they have declared war on us.

    PPS- For those of us who are religious, Christians or Jews, I find it significant that the pretext for this outrageous attack on our sovereignty is the Holy city of Jerusalem. But then I thank G-d for giving us President Trump, the only person uniquely gifted and with the life experience that enables him to give us back our basic freedoms, and above all freedom to observe our religion. The ‘progressives’ would have it that religion is a matter of personal choice, and therefore can be legislated away. We hold our religion is based on Eternal Truths, for which it is worth sacrificing ones life if necessary. So please, please give him the backing he so richly deserves, not like most all ‘conservative’ commentators who reserve the right to criticize when their ‘superior’ intelligence and arrogance dictates. Above all do not fall into the trap of giving credence to the malicious slander we hear daily about his character and actions, which on research turns out to be 99% false.
