Now I could see Trump getting behind this, if it even makes it that far. Imagine that, a USA that acts in its own best interests, with emphasis on America first. Am I dreaming? Maybe, but keep these kinds of bills coming please!

Who needs that toothless UN anyhow?

The bill has like six co-sponsors so far, all republican- no surprise there I suppose.

And even if it does pass everything and become law, it still only takes effect after two years after signing. But still. This is an extremely important piece of legislation that if it becomes reality will put the final nail in the coffin of globalization. The establishment is getting attacked from all sides. It's like I have woken up to a different world. Nationalism is back in full force, and the world is terrified.

GOOD.

The American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017



Ohhhh.... what a nice ring to it it has! I likes it!

We've been the world's police for far too damn long. Regroup, reset, build the wall, concentrate on the USA for a while. And don't screw with us while we make America great again!!! Or else...

Well now that was darn nice of the bill to give them enough time to figure out how they are going to pay for the lease of the building in N.Y. and to pack their bags !!

If this goes through there will be a time when another such function will come into being... Only this time let us hope that the foundation is better thought through.. Also getting Saudi Arabia off of the human rights board would be a nice gesture..

What do they need to do to get it out of committee and up for a vote?

I honestly am fuzzy on this part.

We could see the emergence of a different type of New World Order if the US ends membership & consequently gives up its seat and veto power on the UN Security Council - this could invariably result in other countries following suit, especially Israel, because the US is the worlds only superpower and offers better protection than the brainchild of the Elites.

The UN is nothing but a toothless tiger without the US - these are the facts.

As I work my ass off again next week at my job, I will hope this doesn't stop here with this bill. I want to see an end to ALL foreign aid (with the exception of natural disasters). Enough is enough already. We've given and given, received the huddled masses to the point of imploding, and now it's time to say NO MORE. Use some of that money to reduce the deficit. If Trump actually makes a dent in that he will be my hero.

Well I am not going to say this action would come without consequences. It might embolden North Korea, for example. But screw it. Let China deal with them. And if they won't or don't, then maybe we will have to. On OUR terms. Trump has already said as much.

Great. If this goes through, I hope that since the US restored it´s sovereignity than, it allow other countries to restore, too. Maybe start closing all those military bases, give back our gold and finally our own sovereignity.

So that, when the US uses a nuclear weapon again, all those countries with no more US-bases will not suffer a direct strike. Thank you.

oh dear - while it takes a special kind of stupidity to attempt to deny the fact that the UN is in desperate need of major reforms

its beyond the pale to think that they can just throw away the entire UN

the sponsors of this idiocy - clearly have not thought this through - and in an attempt to rid themselves of the flawed portions of UN activity - propose to cot of thier own noses -with a blanket rejection of the entire UN system - 75% of which works near flawlessly - and is pivotal to a sooth running global comunity

Real Change!?!? Wow, I would love for this is happen. Good, bad, don't care, something needs to change.

Yaaaay!
That means we can start pressuring our own governments to enact sanctions against Israel instead of the US vetoing anything critical towards them.


To be honest, the UN for a long time has been a complete joke, where actions were taken driven by political reasons, rather than the spirit in which it was created and supposed to operate. Having the "Security Council" as some exclusive club making major decisions was always a bad idea too.

Perhaps a less corrupt and honest organisation could take it's place, free from political interference and corruption, staffed by non-partisan representatives.

I would prefer an isolationist approach, bring jobs, money, and military back home. We don't need our assets spread world wide. Let someone else be world police for awhile. Lets us lick our wounds and fix this country first. Rebuild our infrastructure, increase our production, fix our splintered society. Help the poor and feed our hungry and not send trillions of dollars to dictatorial states to fund and arm terror.

But that's just my Small brains way of thinking 😆

This could also signal a push towards deconstructing international geopolitical relationships, which have been largely built upon the exploitation of the global middle class over the last 100 years.

I don't think Israel has too much to worry about with Trump at the helm, even if we did withdraw.

But seeing further down the road, this could also affect things like trade agreements, and the NPT. Of course, Israel was never too keen on the NPT anyways, now were they...

Yeah well if they've been just exploiting the middle class, think of what they've been doing to the lower class of people like me. It's called rape with no vaseline. Haiti and the Clinton Foundation ring any bells?
