Republican Threatens to Cut Funds to UN if Obama Bypasses Congress on Iranian Sanctions

I am NOT a fan of South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, but this time he has a great idea: Cut the United Nation’s funding if Obama tries to go around Congress on Iran.

Then again I am 100 percent for cutting the UN’s funds regardless of what Obama does or doesn’t do. Then we should evict the UN and kick it out of our country.

Anyway, Graham is right to worry that Obama intends to bypass the legal system. Tyrant Obama cares nothing for our laws.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is throwing down the gauntlet, warning the White House he’ll move to cut funding to the United Nations if the administration turns to the international body to lift sanctions on Iran as part of a nuclear deal.

Graham made the comments Thursday during an appearance on Fox News’ “On the Record With Greta Van Susteren.”

Graham, a Republican, is chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee’s Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs. In that role, he says he can block U.S. funding for the United Nations — $654 million is earmarked for 2015 alone.

“Twenty-two percent of the funding for the United Nations comes from the American taxpayers, and I’m in charge of that account,” a defiant Graham told Fox News. He acknowledged he’d also need other lawmakers to sign onto any effort to suspend that funding.

Graham is worried that the administration, should it strike a nuclear deal with Iran, might get the U.N. to lift sanctions without going through Congress to lift U.S. sanctions.

The UN is nothing but apologists for terrorists and tyrants. And it always was.
