Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives have criticized the United Nations as “bloated” and “ineffective” and vowed to press for reforms and a reduction in U.S. funding.

The US Congress doesn't often give you anything to smile about, but today they did.

At a January 25 meeting of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, members characterized the world body as inefficient and corrupt. Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is leading the drive to slash funding and has introduced a bill to get the UN on a rapid schedule of reforms.

In a statement, Ros-Lehtinen said she planned to introduce a bill that would condition U.S. contributions to the UN on “real, sweeping reform,” including changing the UN budget so that member governments can offer to fund only the programs they like.

That way, she said, “U.S. taxpayers can pay for the UN programs and activities that advance our interests and values, and if other countries want different things to be funded, they can pay for it themselves.”

One Republican member of the committee, Dana Rohrabacher of California, said “the UN should be one of [the United States’] prime targets for reducing expenditures in order to bring down this deficit in the next few years.”

My comments;

In John 1:46, a man named Nathanael asked his friend;

Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?

If Nathanael were alive today, he would probably ask the same question about Washington, but with this news, we could give him a good answer.

The Republican Party takeover of the US Congress offers a ray of sunshine in the struggle against a One World Government. That there is even an effort being made to cut funding to the evil and corrupt United Nations is good news, even if there can’t be much serious expectation that it will go very far.

But if you’re an American citizen, and you like the idea of fighting back against a One World Government which will be powered by a spirit of anti-Christ, you might want to give your elected officials a call and tell them to support this measure. Believe it or not, they listen to calls like that.
