Trump Admin Prepares Exec Order to End Funding for UN Agencies Giving Full Membership to PA, PLO

The Trump administration is preparing two executive orders that are likely to cause an earthquake in the Middle East.

By Hana Levi Julian, JEWISH PRESS

The New York Times reported Wednesday in a breaking story that the staff of U.S. President Donald J. Trump is preparing an executive order that would terminate funding for any United Nations agency or other international organization that gives full membership to the Palestinian Authority or the Palestine Liberation Organization.

In addition, the order terminates funding for programs or activities that fund abortion or circumvent sanctions against Iran or North Korea.

According to the report, the draft order also calls for terminating funding for any organization that is “controlled or substantially influenced by any state that sponsors terrorism” or is held responsible for persecution of marginalized groups, or systematic violation of human rights.

Moreover, the order calls for a minimum 40 percent cut across the board in remaining U.S. funding of international organizations, and establishes a committee to make recommendations as to where the cuts should be made.

The list of potential targets includes funding for peacekeeping operations, the International Criminal Court at The Hague, aid to nations who “oppose important United States policies” and the United Nations Population Fund.

A second executive order calls for a review of all current and pending treaties with more than one other nation – applicable only to those not “directly related to national security, extradition or international trade”– and asks for recommendations on which to retain.

    This is what we used to call “cooking with gas..”. He’s really getting down to it with a vengeance. He’s doing things which he didn’t even mention in his campaign. but which inclusively flow from his statements. He certainly can be shown to say what he means and mean what he says….. BOOOM..!!

    The very first politician that I can remember who has actually done what he’d promised. What a relief. I’m just thinking that it’s about time to buy shares in Maalox, and other Antacid companies, Ulcer Medications and so on. (I’m capitalising because it’s such great news) There’ll be huge amounts “bought wholesale” (just an expression) by the entire Democratic Party members, as well as ALLLL the Liberal, Lefty Media and enablers. Liberal Jews by themselves will take up the entire production of 3-4 factories alone…..Just imagine the run on these medications…like the California Gold Rush…. And what about all the U.N. Member States…. the whole World in fact….

    What a wonderful thought….

  2. The anti-Trump MSM were asking,where Trump will get the money to create jobs, build a wall and make America great again. Well it looks like a good source of funds is going to be the savings made by stopping the outflow of $Billions to countries and organisations that hate the USA.

    What a pleasure to know that terrorists will no longer be able to use US funds to buy weapons and explosives to kill innocent people with.

  3. Now all of you commenters know why my wife and I, along with just about everyone in our extended family around the USA, all decided that Trump and only Trump would be our choice for President of the United States. And that choice was made at the start of the Republican Party presidential contenders back in the summer of 2015.

    It’s not because Trump is a Republican. I don’t really give a damn about political party labels. What we really do give a damn about is American nationalism, which is a mirror image of the Jewish nationalism that all of us want for what should and must run the government of the State of Israel.

    As for US membership in all those international pacts, I have taken some time to re-read the great speech of Republican Senator Henry Cabot Lodge in 1919, who led the successful fight to keep the USA out of President Woodrow Wilson’s League of Nations. We ought never to have gotten involved as deeply as we have with NATO, TPP, NAFTA/GATT, and the United Nations Organization, for all of which their financial support comes largely out of the pocketbooks of American citizens. The time has come for us quit that whole rotten and worthless gang.

    And don’t think that I’m the only man in all of “flyover” America — the home of the Deplorables — who thinks exactly the way I preach.

    Well, I don’t have any details and am writing “off the-top-of-my-head”, but you are very perceptive. UNWRA seems to be the Poater Child of prime examples which will receive the hammer of doom from US taxpayers. 1t’s a perfect candidate for defunding, and to be replaced by the same sort of refugee organisations that other refugees have. This hotbed of terrorism, even to it’s schoolbooks and teachings, deserves to be the first fo be defanged.

    But there are so many which deserve to be #1, They’ll likely have to make a roster on which it will have an honourable position. Then the “host” countries will have to accept their new citizens or create another massive refugee problem…….
