Republican Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama has reintroduced legislation that would completely sever America's ties with the United Nations. GOP Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky is an original cosponsor of the bill.
The measure would extricate the U.S. from the U.N. and related entities such as the World Health Organization, cut U.S. funding to the globalist organizations, and end American participation in any agreements with the international bodies.
"The President shall terminate all membership by the United States in the United Nations, and in any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body of the United Nations," the text of the bill states. "Except as otherwise provided, this Act and the amendments made by this Act shall take effect on the date that is two years after the date of the enactment of this Act."
"Effective on the date of the enactment of this Act, the United States will end any participation in any conventions and agreements with the United Nations and any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body of the United Nations. Any remaining functions of such conventions and agreements shall not be carried out," the bill declares.
While many Americans would likely rejoice at the prospect of having the U.S. cut all ties with the U.N., the "American Sovereignty Restoration Act," which has been introduced to no avail in the past, will likely languish in Congress yet again.
"The United Nations has repeatedly proven itself to be an utterly useless organization," Rogers said in a statement.
"The UN's founding charter states the UN's mission 'to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small.' However, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet has proven herself to be nothing more than a puppet for the Chinese Communist Party – aiding the CCP in playing down the very real and horrifying genocide being carried out against Uyghur's. It's unconscionable that China continues to sit on the UN Human Rights Council even as it carries out this disturbing genocide on top of its numerous and daily violations of basic human rights. It's clear the UN has abandoned the ideals set in its founding charter and that's why, among many other reasons, I've reintroduced legislation to withdraw the United States from the UN," the lawmaker said.
"This legislation would also withdraw the United States from the corrupt World Health Organization. The WHO lost all credibility when they chose to put public health second to the Chinese Communist Party by helping the CCP cover up the origins of COVID-19," Rogers said.
