(Activist Post & Catherine J. Frompovich ) Talk about change! One U.S. Congressman, Representative Mike D. Rogers (R-AL-3), has introduced a bill into the 115th Congress to terminate United States membership in the United Nations.
Have you ever heard the remark, “Get the U.S. out of the U.N. and the U.N. out of the U.S.”? Well, on January 3, 2017, Congressman Rogers introduced H.R. 193—American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017  that would require:
- the President to terminate U.S. membership in the United Nations (U.N.), including any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body; and
- closure of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations.
Additionally, the bill prohibits:
- the authorization of funds for the U.S. assessed or voluntary contribution to the U.N.,
- the authorization of funds for any U.S. contribution to any U.N. military or peacekeeping operation,
- the expenditure of funds to support the participation of U.S. Armed Forces as part of any U.N. military or peacekeeping operation,
- U.S. Armed Forces from serving under U.N. command, and
- diplomatic immunity for U.N. officers or employees.
The bill has been referred to the House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs. As of my writing this article, there have been six co-sponsors to the bill:
- Walter B. Jones Jr. (R-NC-3)
- Andy Biggs (R-AZ-5)
- Jason Smith (R-MO-8)
- Thomas Massie (R-KY-4)
- John J. Duncan Jr. (R-TN-2)
- Matt Gaetz (F-FL-1)
The introduction of H.R. 193, quite frankly, is something I thought I’d never see in my lifetime, as I’ve been promoting the U.S. getting out of the U.N. ever since I can remember. Why? I believe in American/U.S. sovereignty. Right now, as it stands, there are U.N. troops on U.S. soil. In the summer of 2016, U.N. troops landed here and who knows if there are any mercenaries amongst them…
