U.S. Withdraws From United Nations Human Rights Body


I'd like to see us get out of the UN totally. It's coming.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States withdrew from the United Nations Human Rights Council on Tuesday accusing it of a "chronic bias against Israel," a move that activists warned would make advancing human rights globally even more difficult.

Standing with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Haley slammed Russia, China, Cuba and Egypt for thwarting U.S. efforts to reform the council. She also criticized countries which shared U.S. values and encouraged Washington to remain but "were unwilling to seriously challenge the status quo."

The United States is half-way through a three-year term on the main U.N. rights body and the Trump administration had long threatened to quit if the 47-member Geneva-based body was not overhauled.

"Look at the council membership, and you see an appalling disrespect for the most basic rights," said Haley, citing Venezuela, China, Cuba and Democratic Republic of Congo.

Haley also said the "disproportionate focus and unending hostility toward Israel is clear proof that the council is motivated by political bias, not by human rights."

Washington's withdrawal is the latest U.S. rejection of multilateral engagement after it pulled out of the Paris climate agreement and the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

We probably need to stay in the UN.  It provides cover for some of our intelligence assets.  However, we don't need to finance the organization to the extent that we do.

Great point JB.  

On your point about the intelligence aspect of it, I agree. However, they are anti-American, and, I think we need to cut funding and kick them out. Barry Goldwater said it best.

"The time has come to recognize the United Nations for the anti-American, anti-freedom organization that it has become. The time has come for us to cut off all financial help, withdraw as a member, and ask the United Nations to find headquarters location outside the United States that is more in keeping with the philosophy of the majority of voting members, someplace like Moscow or Peking."

On an emotional level I agree with you. 

However, it has been shown over and over again that it is wise to keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

I love this lady!  She called it a:

‘cesspool of political bias'

I love her too! She's MY kinda woman.
