It looks like the Obama Administration wants desperately to increase U.S. Taxpayer funding of the global U.N. military.

Not good when the Administration is weakly struggling to keep it's head above water without swallowing the floating ashes of burned U.S. Dollars.

Most of it marked for the African campaigns.

Very alarming indeed.

Enough with the taxes already !!



At a time of soaring U.S. budget deficits, brutal economic hardship for tens of millions of Americans, and unprecedented levels of federal spending, the Obama administration is asking Congress to drastically increase U.S. funding for the scandal-plagued United Nations and its oftentimes ruthless so-called international “peacekeeping” troops. However, rather than rewarding the widely criticized “dictators’ club” with more borrowed or confiscated funds, critics say U.S. lawmakers should cut off all funding to the UN — and eventually withdraw from the sovereignty-subverting outfit altogether.

In its fiscal year 2015 budget request, which seeks almost $4 trillion in spending overall, the Obama administration is asking Congress to approve a massive 33-percent hike in U.S. taxpayer handouts to the UN and other international organizations. In addition, the White House is pushing “contributions” to so-called global “peacekeeping” schemes that are a full 43 percent larger than last year, sparking outrage from critics.

You don't really have any say in any level of government do you.

Obama's a real big spender when it comes to other peoples money. We should drop the UN like a bad habit and good riddance.

The only good thing I have to say about the UN and their "peacekeepers" is I like their blue helmets. Really have a nice contrast and hard to miss.

Is he trying to 'buy' favoritism, or completely destroy the country before his term is over?
This makes absolutely no sense, considering the massive tax hike he enforced on the American citizens and called it ACA !
History has proven what will happen when the common folk are overtaxed to the benefit of a few.....

What an unsurprise.

Trashing our military in terms of materiel and patriotic officer corps . . .

messing with morale in horrific ways very destructively . . .

militarizing a shocking number of Federal and state agencies . . .

and now this!!!!

What a traitorous Destroyer-in-Chief bustard.

May all the globalist and their tools fall speedily in the pit they have dug for the rest of us.

The UN can go spit.

That useless organization needs to be abolished, or we need to withdraw from it, and our cash.

It is nothing but a bunch of corrupt Bureaucrat's like all government entitles are.

They think they can fight human nature.

Power corrupts.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

The UN has epically failed on the very reasons it was founded.

End hunger.
End wars.
End poverty.

etc .

To work out differences with words, instead of bullets.

Epic failures on all fronts there.

Well look at that..xuechen playing childish games...creating look a like threads in response to a pro Obama thread created by another member.

Thought Springer had a thread about being a troll in the political forum...This would be considered troll like behavior.

It's the content of the topic that counts.

The emphasis of the title does attract attention though.

-->> Not the first time I have done this.

btw, does Canada pay into the U.N. "Peacekeeper" programs ?

If so, how much?

It would be interesting to compare population vs money by other nations.

Unfortunately, Obama---->>>>> can't be solely held responsible because congress still has to authorize funds that he so foolishly spends.

Yup.

It will be a good debate.

I suppose some lobby influences on some Congress people will happen.

When we have these great human rights countries participating with the UN like Iraq,Iran and China,
I find it very hard that we are even involved with it, let alone give them more of our tax dollars.
I would rather just fold up shop and use that money here for us.

They spend your money and ignore what you want?

C'mon Obama takes his orders from headquarters & so do the Republicans!

Globalist objective NUMBER 1 - take down the US & install a 1 World Government - McCain & Lindsay Graham are pushing for that as hard as Obama is...it's just total corruption across the board.

imo

Nowadays I'd bet there are more people in the US that haven't even heard of the constitution, let alone the words, "Taxation without representation"

Yep you got that right. Every single politico needs to be viewed through the "Globalist" filter and then we can accurate assess who our true enemies are.

Anyone got a list of who's actually going to support this in congress? Might be time for a letter/email/phone campaign.

do you really think anyone in congress or the political system cares beyond what they want?

Its like corporate higher ups, but they get away with it because they "are american government officials", they dont give two funks as long as they get paid, just another greedy douche bag with a free pass to crap on people.

Take the money out of the equation, and they will just stop.
