The Not So United Nations


Beetle Belle is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, December 3, 2014. Our friend, Belle, is joining me for breakfast this morning. She has prepared a lovely Quiche Lorraine for our enjoyment. I have prepared a ton of of Bloody Marys! Please hurry over and settle in for a good meal and a spirited discussion about the United Nations.


A Mish-Mosh of Nations

Thank you all for coming to join us this morning. I spent the week-end thinking about the United Nations and for the life of me I can't think of one good reason this organization exists. Hardly anything decided in the United Nations makes sense. Nations known for brutal treatment of women are elected to serve on human rights committees. It would be funny if it weren't so tragic. Something new is on the horizon at the UN and the United States has become the focus of their unwarranted scrutiny. I liken this organization to a soup that should taste good, but doesn't work at all in the end. Take a sip of your Bloody Mary. It may calm your nerves.


The UN and Our Police

You may be surprised to learn that the UN anti-torture panel is quite concerned about our police force. They are extremely critical of the incidences of police brutality and the high-incidence (in their twisted view) of the treatment of African-Americans. They are also horrified about what they consider to be harsh prison conditions and interrogation methods. It seems that they are getting on the same bandwagon as President Obama and Attorney General Holder. The committee was also extremely critical of the interrogation methods used at GITMO. They must have been cheering when they heard that President Obama just released more terrorists into the loving hands of terror groups all over the world. It is exceedingly hard for this bug to imagine the United Nations criticizing the United States with a straight face. Muslim terrorists are killing people in droves with great abandon and the best this "committee" could come up with is our treatment of prisoners. I picture this committee as I do the rest of the UN. I see them as a hotbed of snakes waiting to strike at the heart of democracy, liberty and justice. Any organization that welcomes the inclusion of murderous nations who commit atrocities against humanity is too misguided and flawed to exist.


Let Us Take Over

Essentially, what the United Nations wants the United States to do is to surrender its authority and independence to their organization. The UN wants the right to investigate our police and pass judgement on incidents like that involving Michael Brown in Ferguson. In the midst of their grieving, Brown's parents actually travelled to Geneva, Switzerland to testify before this committee. I can't imagine who paid for this visit or why it was remotely necessary. The committee is only interested in crimes against blacks. They have a lot in common with Eric Holder, President Obama and Al Sharpton.


Cut the Cord

It is time to get the United Nations out of our lives and our nation. It is time to stop funding this body of lunatics who sanction murder when it suits them. It is time to put the money we spend on worthless causes in ways that make sense according to our standards. What goes on in America should say in America. We should not welcome the input of the United Nations. Local and national issues are none of their concern and we had better make sure this nonsense stops now. I suppose all of this interest is part of the great global one world vision that President Obama and others are so fond of. May that day never happen. God help us if it does.

Forming the UN probably looked like a good idea at the time, but it has proved to be nothing more than a clique who gangs up on inferior nations to exercise their will. If the inferior nation can't stand up to the pressure, inevitably they are brought into the fold and "made" a member. Nothing more than a bully society, IMHO.

Good Morning Rachael,

I agree and when I remember how much of our hard earned money is thrown away on this useless organization I feel sick! See you at the Inn.

Perhaps we should pay attention to this when we select our next President. Any candidate in favor of giving more power to the UN over our country should be automatically rejected.

But then we have a large number of voters who have never even heard of the UN so good luck with this one.

Good Morning carol,

If you take a few minutes to look into this useless organization, you'll end up picketing in New York!!! I'll see you at the Inn. Baileys sounds good to me.

Good Morning Mike,

I pity the next president. He or she (that was very PC of me) has to undo all the damage cause by Obama and then get some other important work done. I don't think 8 years is enough time. As for the UN, I say kick their hypocritical behinds out of the country!

It will never happen but I'm with you on this one. The UN has never lived up to its promise, and the U.S. has essentially been the police force for the UN for decades. I would have no problem with the U.S. leaving it.

Dear billy,

I thinking dreaming is still permitted in our country, but I'll have to check on that! See you at the Inn.

The UN needs to go pound sand up their butts and take Oblabber Mouth with it as they are kicked out of this nation.

I hope we get a new president with enough hair on his or her chest to do exactly that.

You have a magnificent way with words! I am at the Inn waiting for you.

Dear Mike,

Okay, the hair on the chest of a woman turns me off. Then again, I can't think of a woman I would vote for who would want to run.

Well I was going to name another body part but didn't think it would pass the censorship and wouldn't work at all for a female.

I am totally against being PC, but in this case, silence is probably golden!

Pop and Belle,

Sometimes the UN is good for comic relief as long as we don't take them seriously.

Good Morning Tom,

That's a fine way to look at it. I feel the same way about everyone in Washington!!! See you at the Inn. I'll save you a seat.

To me, there is no authority for th un to meddle in the internal affairs of the US. Let them look into human rights in Chin a, North Korea, any muslim country, etc. The un is a useless organization.

Dear taxlarry,

Useless is putting it mildly. To even imagine that this hideous body thinks they have the right to butt in is outrageous. See you at the Inn.

What a different world it would be if we cut that cord.

As it is though, we face a danger. One little recognized aspect of our Constitution is that we can implement laws through treaty ratification. Up until partisanship became institutionalized in our system, there was little concern that this would actually happen. Now though, we need to remain aware when we vote that a small majority of our Senate working with our President can bypass the House to implement new laws.

I agree with your completely. I have always wondered why our country pays out so much money to keep this useless organization going. Great hub and now that I am back in action I will see you soon at the inn.

Good Morning FitnezzJim,

Obama has already figured out how to circumvent the situation where Congress is involved in treaty ratification. He simply changes the name and calls a treaty something else. It's good to be the King! See you at the Inn.

Good Morning Pamela,

It is lovely to see you at the breakfast table. As for the United Nations, well... it's not so lovely! See you at the Inn, my treat all night!

US participation in the UN should have ended long ago. However, at one time the US was a very influential member of this body. During that time, we tolerated the UN as long as it was sticking its nose into the affairs of other countries. Now that the UN is turning its attention to America, we see even more clearly the agenda of this body - submission of the individual nation states to the desires of the body of nations....leading ultimately to a world government type of system.

It's way past time for us to bail.

Good Morning Hxprof,

The UN fits quite nicely into Obama's desire for a one world government. Just think of all the leaders he can defer to while spitting in the face of Americans! I'll see you at the Inn.

The UN never had a chance to achieve world peace.

They couldn't even sit the countries that began with "I" next to each other.

The countries that the UN should have reigned in, were also the countries that had Voting power to make sure that didn't happen.

The UN should be focusing on the terrorist states, that make Gitmo look like Dubai. Waterboarding and humiliation are nothing compared to killing, maiming, cutting heads off, torture, real torture of innocent civilians.

How can anyone compare what we do to what the terrorists do?

It seems like some people in the US worry about the terrorists more than the people that put their lives on the line to protect us.

Raspberries to the UN.

We shouldn't need the UN to get countries that want to help other countries, and protect against the terrorists.

Good Morning bradmaster,

Agreed. What kind of organization allows countries that torture women to sit on committees that monitor these things? The UN is a joke. See you at the Inn.

Greed got in the way. It seems to be getting more difficult to have any two people, must less nations, to be in accordance with one another in today's world.

Dear Lady Guinevere,

Not only greed, but this is an organization that allows nations that brutalize their citizens to sit on committees reviewing human rights violations! It doesn't get any dumber than that. See you at the Inn.
