Zing! U.K. Pulls Plug on United Nations Spending

In a  move that’s bound to hearten U.S. critics, the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government of Prime Minister David Cameron has pulled the financial plug  on four U.N. agencies:

In a sweeping and hard-nosed reorganization of priorities for its $10.6 billion multilateral foreign aid program, the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government of Prime Minister David Cameron has pulled the financial plug entirely on four U.N. agencies at the end of next year, put three others judged merely “adequate” on notice that they could face the same fate unless they improve their performance “as a matter of absolute urgency;” and issued pointed criticisms of almost all the rest.

The major exception: UNICEF, the U.N. children’s aid agency, which got a strong endorsement and a funding increase.

The tough actions were revealed as the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, led by House Foreign Affairs Committee chairperson Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, has been gearing up an extended critical look at U.N. funding as part of its overall budget austerity plan. The British revelations also came while U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice was on an extended cross-country tour, drumming up grass-roots support for U.N. funding in what is sure to be a protracted battle. Unveiling of the new British priorities undoubtedly will hearten her opponents on Capitol Hill.

Such an attitude is “long overdue,” in the opinion of Brett Schaefer, an expert on U.S. funding of the U.N. at the conservative Heritage Foundation, and a longstanding critic of unquestioning American support for the institution. “The taxpayers in developed countries and the poor in developing countries both deserve better than they have been receiving from the U.N.”

This is welcome news, and not a minute too soon, in light of this sickening report about a GLSEN activist who was  chosen to present the National Education Association’s official position on “inclusive” sex education to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women:

“Experts” have determined that what’s wrong with our education system is that kids aren’t taught enough about sex:

“Oral sex, masturbation, and orgasms need to be taught in education,” Diane Schneider told the audience at a [United Nations conference] panel on combating homophobia and transphobia. Schneider, representing the National Education Association (NEA), the largest teachers union in the US, advocated for more “inclusive” sex education in US schools. . . . She claimed that the idea of sex education remains an oxymoron if it is abstinence-based, or if students are still able to opt-out.
Comprehensive sex education is “the only way to combat heterosexism and gender conformity,” Schneider proclaimed, “and we must make these issues a part of every middle and high-school student’s agenda.” . . .
A panel sponsored in part by the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) advocated for “comprehensive sex education” not only as a tool to combat “gender oppression,” but also as the key to achieving all of the Millennium Development Goals.

Stacy McCain sums up:

Meanwhile, you will be pleased to learn, in her official statement to the U.N. conference, Melanne Verveer, U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues (and “one of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton ’s closest associates“), devoted separate sections to “Women and Green Jobs” and “Gender and Climate Change.”

So that’s the “women’s agenda” the United States is now promoting worldwide: Orgasms for kids, green jobs and fighting climate change.

I’m no longer surprised by anything the NEA advocates, but it will take rank and file teachers to step up and do something about that.

We can DEFUND the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, and other worthless UN  commissions.

  1. So Melanne Verveer advocates that women become grade school teachers, building windmills in the classroom while discussing with the children how to have an orgasim, all the while doing their part for global warming…is that gist of this story?

  2. So the NEA is now on record as being Anti-Heterosexual and Anti-Remainding ones gender and they want to indoctrinate kids before they get to high school? Maybe its time for Wisconsin and other states to get rid of this union before things even get more perverse.

  4. It occurred to me recently that Obama’s goal is to become Secretary-General of the UN someday. At least it looks that way with his unqualified support of every facet and program of the UN. His subjugation of the US to the UN appears to be first steps in sliding into that position.

    Kudos to the UK for reconsidering their donations to the UN.

    Exactly! I’ve thought the same thing for a long, long time — Obama is seeking higher office.

    Evidence: Sen. Obama sponsored a bill to make US taxpayers pay the UN $250 Billion per year. He is a sympathizer to Islamic nations, China, Russia and ignores our allies as a given. He acts like a representative of the UN sent to America to lecture us on conforming with the UN NWO agenda instead of respecting and upholding our laws. His marxist background and his connections to uber socialist George Soros who is embedded in the UN agenda and the ultimate crony capitalist.

    It’s all there for anyone to see. If Pres. Obama gives up US sovereignty to the UN he can then move on up to rule us from above as an unelected dictator. NOT going to happen.
