President Trump’s shake up at the UN: Others talk, U.S. acts

Brian LilleyArchive

We keep hearing mainstream media claims that as of 100 days in the Oval Office, Trump had accomplished nothing. I disagreed with that and did my own top five list but I’m starting to think the President’s best move so far might be shaking up the chummy club that is the U.N.

Trump appointed former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, a solid conservative, to the position of Ambassador to the United Nations and gave her a mandate to do things differently and boy, is she ever.

Watch as I show you all the ways Trump is shaking up that “go along, to get along” place.

What is interesting in all of this is that while many governments will talk a good game, they won’t act.

I’m not going saying Trump talks a good game about women, we’ve heard the tapes, but given a chance to act, he is, while the others sit on their hands.

The United Nations is an organization that sucks up a lot of political time, energy and money without accomplishing much. It gives too much credence to the views of backwards and oppressive governments like the one in Saudi Arabia.

If Donald Trump can shake that cozy little club up a bit and force some real change, it might become one of the biggest accomplishments of his presidency.

I like the smell of burning toast.

Unless you’re about to have a stroke, I don’t get it.

Freeland wasn’t about to insult half of Justin’s cabinet. Disavowing Saudi Arabia would be an insult to the Muslim Brotherhood. Canada is full of Saudi bribe money. Like Canada has anything to say against the Saudis. I think not.

I sure hope you’re right about McMaster Bill Elder. Bit of a war monger that one.

If the US stops funding them and boots them out, others will follow. I cannot see Russia sticking around much longer either, eventually they will be pushed around by Muslims in the UN and get out as well.

United Nations, funded by western democratic nations, owned and operated by Islam and its stone-age ideology.

Trump’s phenomenal market rally and his repatriation of 10s of thousands of jobs in the first 60 days was miracle enough – stay the course, drain the swamp, ignore the fake news.

I understand he is punting McMasters for his insubordination.

As long as the UN’s largest voting block is Muslim, the best change, any Western Country could make is to walk away and resign from this phony Muslims First Club.

Saudi Arabia’s treatment of women is the proof women are considered sub-human; the UN should be dismantled and declared as a useless entity running a worldwide scam. It is corrupt and bereft of genuine concern for humankind. It’s all about the money and power.
Maurice Potvin, I agree completely, the UN crime syndicate should be evicted from the US. I like Dave Bairnard’s observation re: UN land and buildings.

Trump is probably thinking that the UN land and buildings would make a fine condo/hotel complex. A UN eviction to some obscure country like Iceland would be perfect.

Donald Trump is so refreshing!

“A trait our Conservatives had. "

“A trait I wish our Conservatives had. "

In regards to the main stream media in the US claiming Trump has done nothing in his first 100 days, that could not be a finer compliment, though I don’t think the US MSM realizes it.

We all know that the main stream media in the US and Canada don’t just hate Trump, but they loathe and spit bile at Trump. Trump in turn, of course, does not hold back his disgust for them either. A trait our Conservatives had.

Any mistake Trump makes no matter how small is used to beat and bash Trump to a proverbial pulp by the MSM. That is a constant.

The very fact that they say he has done nothing means they also cannot find anything to beat Trump over the head with since we all know they would do that if they could, even on the smallest of issues.

So if declaring he did nothing in his first 100 days is all they have got, then Trump has done phenomenal job.

When are we getting our own Trump?

The US is just one voice, and so cannot make a whole lot of difference. As Pope John Paul II said of communism, so can be said of the UN. Neither can be reformed; any attempt will end in failure. Best to cut bait and run. Leave the UN to it’s own devices…. and kick them the hell out of the US. Brussels would be the perfect place for them to set up shop. And they can take Trudeau with them while they’re at it.
