Here's a good one coming out now.

Seems there is a law from 1994 that might prohibit future funding from the U.S. Government to that wild eyed United Nations agreement about "climate change".

Looks to have something to do with the U.N. "recognizing" the “State of Palestine”.

A bunch of American Congress people are presenting this to Obama and it appears they are all Republican.

So, if true, that would mean Democrats are all in favor of ignoring a Federal law.

Good thing because, imo, most UN "programs" are just money funnels for the international high level bandits that fleece billion$ from tax payers worldwide.



Oops! Federal Law Prohibits Obama Funding UN Climate Bureaucracy


Thanks to a Clinton-era statute and an obscure vote last month by the United Nations, federal law now officially makes it illegal for the Obama administration to send a single penny of your money to the UN climate bureaucracy. That is good news for U.S. taxpayers, of course. But it puts the UN and the Obama administration in an awkward position as they struggle desperately to convince other governments that the UN's much-touted “global-warming” regime, officially signed Friday, is not going to crumble in the face of a hostile Congress and a U.S. Constitution that has been trampled at every turn. Now, dozens of U.S. senators, who Obama and the UN hoped to bypass in imposing the global “climate” treaty in defiance of the U.S. Constitution, are putting the UN and Obama on notice.

The latest twist surrounds a 1994 U.S. law passed by Congress and signed by then-President Bill Clinton. Among other elements, the law prohibits the distribution of U.S. taxpayer funds to “any affiliated organization of the United Nations which grants full membership as a state to any organization or group that does not have the internationally recognized attributes of statehood.” Last month, though, the UN climate bureaucracy, known as the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), decided to admit the U.S. taxpayer-funded “State of Palestine” as a member. That means no more American money may legally be disbursed to the UN's climate bureaucracy, no matter what Obama may have lawlessly promised to foreign governments and dictatorships.


The Exposures just keep on coming

Sounds (to me) like they were just hiding behind climatology to deny the Gazans and West Bankians 'recognition' as a State (Palestine, whats that?), thereby denying them equal human rights under Inter-national Law.

Go figure.

Considering both groups were given back to their respective countries to rule over and they refused its obvious they are unwanted by everyone. Also They arent even a real people according to Arafatt and ex PLO leadership. They are just refugees from surrounding countries who are EXILES trying to claim something their own governments refuse to run or take back.

Meh, the oppressors and oppressed are clearly defined/ If harmony and unity is what everyone wants, why not let them out of that open air prison galled Gaza?

Never happen, whats called the Peace Process is a sham, ongoing for decades, designed to lull everyone into thinking that the poor jews are the oppressed people when in reality they are the ones occupying the 'Palestinian' homeland, since 1948.

Please cite the law, and the portion of it, which prohibits the US from contributing to a UN organization which includes a UN recognized state.

This is just more obstructionist crap from the energy interests (big oil, coal).

Considering almost all jews originally there were from all over the Middle east and not europe i dont see it. Teh greatest palestinian YAsser arafatt said th etruth when he was quoted off mike about this being a sham. HIS generation of "palestinians" were not even from there. they were from egypt.jordan.

The only ones occupying are the rejects from those countries who their own people do not want back. reason why? they tried to over throw their own countries. Also Alot of Jews are"palestinian jews" who lived there when the name was changed to Israelis for pride and to support the creation of a state of their own after so many years in exile.(thank the romans btw for that)

ANd there was not really a palestinian homeland. a territory where arabs and jews lived together called "the AREA of palestinia" Seriously The romans even said they changed th ename from JUDEA to Palestinia as punishment for uprisings. Illegal re naming is apparently upheld it seems huh?

If th e UN really believed the"palestinians" They would retroactively go back and de create Israel. but they have not adn THAT should tell you something.

Your source.

Article 3 paragraph 1 of the Montevideo Convention states that “the political existence of the state is independent of recognition by the other states.”



One thing surely does not state a hindrance: the internal preconditions of a state: the United Nations and the World Bank have both attested to the fact that the National Authority is now in a position to govern a stable Palestinian state. According to a report by Robert Serry, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East, published on April 12, 2011, “the Palestinian National Authority is functioning like a state in all areas such as health, education, energy, justice and security”. The World Bank announced at the beginning of April that the Palestinian Leadership had improved their financial administration and the health and education systems were now at a similar level to those of other countries in the region.


The UN recognized Palestine as a state in 2012.
