House condemns U.N. over Israel settlement vote

by Nahal Toosi |
January 6, 2017

The House voted overwhelmingly to rebuke the United Nations for passing a resolution that condemned Israeli settlement construction, a bipartisan slap that also targets the Obama administration while signaling a rocky road ahead for U.S.-U.N. relations under soon-to-be-President Donald Trump.

The House measure, which passed 342-80 on Thursday, is likely to be followed by a similar, largely symbolic non-binding resolution in the Senate.

Although its wording did not explicitly state so, the House statement also was a scolding of outgoing President Barack Obama’s administration for not vetoing the U.N. resolution. Some U.S. lawmakers already are saying they want to go further in the coming months by stripping the United Nations of U.S. funding.

    It’s past time we leave the UN. We’ve been paying our dues as stated but not all countries pay theirs. Tell me how the UN has helped the USA? We need to stop funding all the countries and start worrying about Our USA. Has anyone ever given America any money or anything else. I was looking at clothing over the weekend and found nothing made in the USA. What’s wrong with this picture? I bought a pair jeans in my normal size 12 petite, they were big all over, 5″ to long, and just didn’t fit anywhere. No I did lose weight (I wish). Washed them in hot water, didn’t shrink. They look like denim but they were some kind of cheap polyester fabric. Denim is heavy weight cotton, it’s made to wear for more than a month or two. Have we sunk so far as to buy what we don’t want because it’s all there is? Are we settling for this type of rejects from other countries. Enough! I’ve said enough for tonight.

  • Richard Schwartz says:

    I suggest we reduce funding but remain to retain our veto. Specify agencies to be defunded so those oppose us are hurt the most. Remember the UN needs New York to get messages out. Opener why not quest the percentage of money going to UNICEF going to people to be helped and money spent for administrative use. SKIMMED Highlight skimming done by the UN.

    Support Israel…Not The UN!!

  • justinwachin says:

    President Obama’s administration has been anti-Israel from the beginning. He managed to put a few Jews in his administration to make it look good. As we see in the history of George Soros, some Jews have no problem sticking it to other Jews as long as they save their own skin and profit from the experience.

    The United Nations has become a bloated organization that accomplishes very little in advancing freedom and opportunity for the masses. Too often they have served to keep brutal thugs in power.

  • James in Texas says:

    Until we have in-place Term Limits, the “Games in DC” will never change! The majority of the people want us out of the UN, while our “Professional Liars aka: Professional Politicians, will keep the UN as their “best fall-guy” to blame when the UN does what “they want done”!

  • bobnstuff says:

    The first thing you should be asking is should Israel be expanding their nation into other peoples land? Israel is creating their own problems and we are supporting them. This is not land that belongs to Israel, they are in fact taking it. If it was any other country the American government would be protesting but not so with Israel. There are borders involved here. Forget who the two groups involved are and just look at the facts. Who is doing what to whom? Can anyone think of a case other then this one that America just sat back and let one country take land from another? If someone came and took you property what would you do? I bet if you had a gun you would shot them wouldn’t you. Look at the facts and see who is in the wrong and then look and see what the UN did. Who is on the side of right. Every other country can see it except the new and improved US.

    1. CrustyOldGeezer says:

      Do you feel the same way about the millions of illegal aliens in this country?

      Or do you just enjoy sticking your nose into other peoples business instead of cleaning your own house first?

      1. bobnstuff says:

        The illegals in the US are not bulldozing my house or stealing my land. The illegal in our country are not claiming that it’s should be part of their country just because they need living room. Those Israelis are just a bunch of illegals going into another country and stealing things. The only difference is their government supports them.

        1. CrustyOldGeezer says:

          Don’t know much about the history of Israel do you?

          And now we will have to listen for endless hours on how smart you are, how old you are, how much knowledge you have amassed, how many degrees you have, your endless travels in that part of the world….

          We don’t care.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Do you know the history of Israel? How did the country come to be? What are the borders of the country. Who’s land was it that was given to them? Do you think that those people were happy to see there land taken? So you start out with hate. Over the years many have tried to create peace in the area but every time it looks like it could happen the Israelis take a hard line and things fall apart. How would you like a neighbor that puts you in camps, destroys your homes and tries to starve your economy. Israels government doesn’t want peace, that could lead to a cutting of the money they get from our government for defense. Yes I know the history of Israel. I support a Jewish homeland but not the actions of it’s government.

          2. CrustyOldGeezer says:

            Hell bob, I’m still trying to unwind this statement from you:
            “The illegals in the US are not bulldozing my house or stealing my land.
            The illegal in our country are not claiming that it’s should be part of their country just because they need living room.”

            The short answer is “OPEN YOUR EYES!

            But that would require “PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT YOUR EYES TELL YOU!” but that’s another non-starter with you.

            As to your “They stole the land”…

            WHO ‘stole the land first’? should be on your mind.

            Since we know that the Jewish People lived there during the Roman Empire, that would make the land JEWISH PROPERTY.

            In the 6 days war, they TOOK IT BACK.

            So, in your mind, it comes down to ‘how long they hold the land’ is paramount.

            Since this time they have held the lands in question since 1967.

            Prior to this reclamation we merely need to go back the the only written History to gather the RIGHTS of OWNERSHIP, and that would be the Bible.

            But, in your mind, the real world has nothing to do with the real world as you wish it existed.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            So when are you giving your home back to the Native Americans?

            How many of these Jews can trace there blood line to the middle east. Most of these people are of eastern European decent with little or no middle eastern blood.

            Israel is not just making this land part of their country but the are stealing the land from families who have held title to the land for generations. It’s actions like these that will keep Israel from ever being at peace or being safe. If Israel wants respect from the other nations of the world they need to earn it by their actions. Right now they don’t look very good do they.

          4. CrustyOldGeezer says:

            As a Matter of FACT, they are sitting rather pretty right now.

            They have people like you wearing soiled diapers every day.

          5. CrustyOldGeezer says:

            I take it that you attended public schools and enjoyed being INDOCTRINATED into whatever the union drone at the front of room told you to believe?

          6. bobnstuff says:

            I don’t remember there being teacher unions when I went to school and the six day war was studied as current events not history.

          7. CrustyOldGeezer says:

            Yes, the teachers unions were in full INDOCTRINATION mode in most parts of the country in the 60’s.

            The communists had already figured out the best way to destroy America was to destroy the Nation though indoctrinating the youth while young and easily led.

            I see it worked well with you.

          8. bobnstuff says:

            Since I’m about as far from being communist as you can get, hiving been a business owner my entire life. You seem to confuse educated with communist. You do know that Israel have socialized health care.

            “Health care in Israel is universal and participation in a medical insurance plan is compulsory. All Israeli citizens are entitled to basic health care as a fundamental right. The Israeli healthcare system is based on the National Health Insurance Law of 1995, which mandates all citizens resident in the country to join one of four official health insurance organization.”

            You should go live in Israel since you like it so much, You could live on one of their collective farm, the kibbutz would be a nice place for you except for it is socialism at it’s most pure form.

            Amazing all those socialist thing the right hate are part of the country they support blindly.

            Knowing these thing are part of the value of a University education.

          9. CrustyOldGeezer says:

            The indoctrination if pubic screwls wasn’t enough so you went to a ‘university’ to complete the process?

            You really need to stop bob, the hole is getting deeper as you dig.

        2. Webb says:

          No…But they are Stealing Our Tax Dollar…
          Given By Progressive Democrats…

          1. bobnstuff says:

            You mean like all the money we send out in foreign aid? who gets the most foreign aid I wonder? What party is about to send us 9 trillion dollars deeper in debt?

          2. Webb says:

            Is 9 Trillion a Problem…
            Obama added 8 Trillion…
            America is Bankrupt Now…9 Trillion will just make The USA file Bankruptcy A Lot Sooner!!

          3. bobnstuff says:

            It took Obama eight years to do what the Republicans will do in one month. This is just one bill, wait till Trump gets started spending and cutting taxes. Trumps standard solution to overspending is bankruptcy.

        3. disqus_thqGMwIIHV says:

          You idiot, the illegals from Mexico are claiming that Texas and California is their country not U.S. soil. Wake up you moron.
          We paid Mexico alot of money when the war against them ended. Maybe if they want it back we should demand our money back. I’m sure that money is worth more now then it was worth back then so it should be lots more for them to give us.
          Before you open your mouth again, read your history books, or do you not know how to read in English?

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Didn’t you take any US history in school. We took both California and Texas from Mexico and gave them nothing. The only thing we bought was a strip of land call the Gadsden Purchase which is now part of New Mexico and Arizona. Why do you think so many cities in both state have Spanish names. Go learn something before you call people names. Both States were independent countries although California for only a few days. I guess you never heard of Sam Huston either. Also you are trying to tell me that Mexicans are coming into those states and taking land from there rightful owners and building homes on it buy force.


    2. used_to_be_a_liberal says:

      In a nut-shell, you have been swallowing propaganda bull shit.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        So I have the facts wrong? Did Israel not steal the land? Under any other circumstance this would be an act of war.

        1. CrustyOldGeezer says:

          Yes, you have your ‘facts’ wrong, no Israel did not “steal” the lands in question, no “Palestinians” is not a race, they are the scum of the Arab world (no other Arab Nation wants them).

          Any more questions?

  • Tiger says:

    Not enough. They should have taken O down for this and lathered up Kerry with kerosene and lit a fire under his ass for his speech.

    Kerry was proven to have given aid and comfort to the enemy in Nam, Pardoned by the peanut, Muslims loving Carter and his records Sealed by the One World Order Billy send me more interns Clinton.

    It is time to let the Truth Ring out loud and clear, name the culprits and stop supporting our enemies.

      That my friend is common sense and these RINO still in the stupor that O put on them. Trump slapping it out.

      1. regulus30 says:

        common sense does not seem to rule the day; we must insist THIS happens.

        1. Tiger says:

          Been pushing this for years.

          1. regulus30 says:

            the logical transition is to form a new coalition of countries striving for free democracies; ie Eastern Block [anti-Russian] countries, and anyone whose goal is to produce a free society for it’s citizens. This WILL DIVIDE the one world order and it must happen NOW.

          2. Tiger says:

            The U.S. under O was not going to do this but under Trump this could happen. He is now wanting a complete investigation into the Federal Reserve, the Creature created on Jekyll Island at a time when our country getting on it’s feet, banks not giving loans unless assured people could pay them back, our national debt being paid down etc. These One World Order folks who raise their ugly heads throughout the history of our country convinced Congress they were needed. Trump going to get a real education on this if he lets Rand Paul and his father do the investigation, they are experts on this.

            Kennedy made an attempt to warn the American people about the One World Order, he turned to the Main Media of his time to help him get the word out, he was killed shortly after. This is a Clandestine group who even though in the Shadows is very much in the open if one knows where to look. The players are well known and wouldn’t take a Rocket Scientist to take them apart.

      They have shown their True Colors, which most of us saw as O and Kerry and all his administration showed theirs these last few months. All are guilty of Treason against America and they need to be taken out now. Two weeks is too much time for hands of these demons.

      1. used_to_be_a_liberal says:

        The Trump effect/affect is gaining momentum every day, not only in the U S but in many other countries too. The left-wits are running out of steam, and the democrat politicians, along with the RINOs are in big trouble, as is left-wit news media. They will not be able to stop Trump, or us, they will try, but they will end up looking like the fools that they are.
        Not only does Trump have aces up his sleeve, but the deck is stacked in his favour.
        Trump cuts straight to the chase, he won’t be talking in circles like politicians normally do. Under the Obama administration this country has been put at risk, the safety, security, sovereignty both political, and economic have been compromised, and in some instances sold. All this falls into the realm of National Security, which by the way includes illegal entry into the country by millions, and the Islamic/Muslim invasion of the U S pushed by the U N, and condoned by Obama. This itself is cut and dry.
        The reasons, and or excuses made up of teddy bears and roses, couched by so-called tolerance, feelings, empathy, etc… are not valid enough to throw the National Security of this country to the wolves.
        Therefore any politician who would oppose Trump on any of these issues will be committing political suicide, as they can be deemed to be anti-American, anti-National Security, pro New World Order, selfish S O Bs who have no problem selling out their country, and the United States of America, as a whole. They risk great public exposure, their cons, scams, lies, and deceit is up for exposure.
        Obama has already gone over the line, if he keeps pushing, he may find that the only way to save his butt, is to resign two or three days before Jan. 20, then try to have Biden pardon him.
        Speaking of pardons, the Hilda-Beast and her crew have not been charged with anything yet, I hope nothing comes down on her head until after Jan. 20. If Obama attempts to pardon her prior to Jan.20 then he will have pardon Bill, and their daughter, along with dozens of other people who were and are involved in all this “stuff” If Obama does this, then it is a public admission of guilt, and he sinks the whole lot of them, including the D N C as a whole. Sure no-one may go to jail, but they are done.
        So, go ahead Left-Wits and RINOs make fools of yourselves. Try and stop Trump with tears and blather, only a few will buy it.
        Trump is far from finished with the U N, he has only just begun. Trump will be declaring the Muslim Brotherhood to be a terrorist organization, which in turn won’t just be a slap in the head to the U N, but a kick in the teeth to the U N and to Obama, and that is only one of the many steps that Trump is going to take.

        1. Tiger says:

          Bravo Bravissimo again and again for laying out the facts and love the “Kick in the Teeth to the UN.”
