Nuts… Team Obama: “When We Meet Our Financial Contributions to UN, We Make Our Country Safer”
The globalists in the Obama Administration are going to get us, and Israel, all killed.
Obama UN Ambassador Susan Rice told the House Appropriations Subcommittee this week that, “Meeting our financial contributions to the United Nations, we make out country safe.”
No Susan, guns make our country safe.
Guns and lots and lots of missiles.
These people are nuts.

While attention was focused on a possible government shutdown last week, another event on Capitol Hill slipped by virtually unnoticed. U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice appeared before both a House Appropriations subcommittee and the Foreign Affairs Committee — and her testimony indicated that America is now perched on a foreign-relations precipice at least as dangerous as the looming economic abyss.
Rice’s oral and written testimony offers the most detailed defense yet of the central foreign-policy plank of the Obama administration, known as “engagement.” In short, the Obama doctrine has outfitted American interests with U.N.-made cement shoes. Rice’s apologia, therefore, hands Republican presidential hopefuls a cornucopia of opportunities to articulate a plan to reverse President Obama’s abdication of leadership and responsibility to the United Nations.
Rice’s case had two prongs. The first was a series of unsubstantiated claims of “dramatic” success. The second placed the democratic state of Israel in Obama’s crosshairs, regardless of anything else that has taken, is taking, or will take place across the democratically challenged Arab and Muslim world.
Ultimately, according to Rice, “the United Nations is so important to our national security . . . [that] when we meet our financial obligations to the U.N., we make Americans safer,” and “the U.N. promotes universal values Americans hold dear.” Both of these assertions are demonstrably false.
For the record… The US has the maximum assessed contribution to the UN regular budget – 22%. In 2009 the assessed amount was over half a billion dollars.
