On October 24, 1945, the United Nations officially came into existence upon ratification by the five permanent members of the Security Council – France, the Republic of China, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States – and by a majority of the other forty-six signatories. The United Nations was founded as a successor to the League of Nations, which was considered to have been ineffective in its role as an international governing body since it had been unable to prevent World War II. That was the ostensible reason, but the primary reason was that the United States had never supported the League of Nations and was not a member and therefore the League of Nations was a toothless tiger. Apparently in the 1920s the people elected to run the United States government were a lot smarter than they were in 1945.
The United States initially enjoyed a certain amount of control since the initial fifty-one members usually sided with the United States but that all changed beginning in the mid fifties when new members began being added rapidly until the number of members grew to 185 member-states by 1995. Coupling that with the dubious Uniting for Peace resolution (whereby a veto in the Security Council would mean the General Assembly would assume the powers of the Security Council) meant that the United States had absolutely no control over any U.N. actions even though it was paying on average over the years about 30 percent of the total cost of the operation.
The net result of all these actions is that the United Nations is nothing more than another third world country. It is a place for various kinds and types of satraps from numerous elitist controlled dictatorships to come and rest and collect a big salary for doing little or nothing. Furthermore, these countries pay almost nothing to have a forum to rant about the United States, Israel, or any other successful country that makes their tin-horn fourteenth century dictatorships seem paltry by comparison. The fact that the United Nations keeps its budget shrouded in secrecy further complicates any meaningful analysis of how money is spent. The largesse of the United States and certain other western world countries is the only reason it continues to exist financially.
Personnel costs are estimated to consume at least 75 percent of the U.N. operating budget and the number of employees has increased from 1,500 to in excess of 100,000 worldwide. The salary and benefits packages of U.N. employees in New York City are incredibly lucrative. The average U.N. employee makes about twice as much as is paid for an equivalent position in New York City itself. The United States is supporting another welfare program not documented as such.
The U.N. is what it has always been for the last fifty years – a rotting carcass which has been propped up by various socialist run governments (including often the United States) and left-wing dictatorships and displayed as a vibrant living being. It is time for the final denouement and it can come none too soon.
If the U.N. wants to survive in the 21st Century it must come to grips with the realities of geopolitics in the present world and try to solve world problems rather than pressing for the globalist agenda favored by so many. To do this it must reorganize itself.
The USFA offers the following suggestion:
#1 Break the world into 9 regions: A. United States & Canada; B. Central & South America: C. Russia; D. China; E. Sub-Saharan Africa; F. Europe; G. Mediterranea; H. Sub Asian Continent; I. Oceania.
#2 Give each region exactly one vote and 9 votes are required before the U.N may act. Each region contributes 1/9th of the total amount required to operate the U.N.
It is helpful to have a forum where world problems may be discussed but in its present format the U.N. cannot be allowed to continue to exist and attempt to impose its socialist agenda upon the entire planet. Barring some sort of makeover the U.N. must be scuttled.

Drain the Swamp
March 12, 2017
It took about 85 years to build the swamp and, as America is finding out, it will not be drained in 85 days and almost certainly not in 850 days either. My contacts in Washington D.C. tell me that the entire Executive Branch of government is almost completely operated and controlled by Socialist Party operatives and without them the entire apparatus of government would cease to function. These people need to be phased out slowly and replaced by responsible patriots who care about America, but that will take a long time. This at least can be done slowly and methodically and has a long-term chance of success. This, however, is not the biggest problem in the swamp.
As we are seeing, the Socialist Party is trying to use their functionaries in the Judicial Branch of government to usurp the constitutional duties of the Executive Branch. If Judge Gorsuch is confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice (which he should be) what will you have in that Court? You will have four socialist judges who always vote in lockstep (Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan and Sotomayor) and three conservatives (Alito, Thomas and Gorsuch). You will also have two justices (Roberts and Kennedy) who are unpredictable and apparently have no judicial philosophy whatsoever (see John Roberts and the Affordable Care Act). The notion that with the appointment of Gorsuch you will now have a conservative Supreme Court is simply not substantiated. Judge Kennedy is considering retirement so if you can replace him with a conservative and replace one of the socialist judges (Ginsburg has been sleeping through some sessions) with a conservative judge then perhaps some good things will happen in the Supreme Court.
It is now obvious that the entire federal court system is riddled with socialist judges who are only interested in their socialist agenda and could care less what the Constitution says. There is a big opportunity here since many of the positions in the Federal Courts are unfilled and they should be filled as quickly as possible by the new administration.
We all know about the liberal media and their lies and I will not go into detail on that matter here. Suffice it to say that the forces of socialism are petrified that all their hard work of 85 years is about to be undone and they are reacting violently to everything. The continuous promulgation of lies will work on some people who, after much repetition, will begin to believe the lies. Combine this with the Senate filibusters, the protestors (who is paying these people?), the Federal Reserve (which since 1913 has been controlled by socialists) and the many illegal acts of the socialists and their stooges and you can see why it will not be so easy to drain the swamp.
