Not that we didn’t already know that they’d try doing exactly that as soon as they were able, but here, thanks to LC Jewells45, is the evidence:
Today, in H.R. 1, Democrats will bring legislation to the House floor supporting the transfer of responsibility for a critical national security program to the United Nations. House Republicans will offer a motion to block it.
The Democrat bill supports placing the Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) under the purview of the United Nations. This 9/11 Commission report recognized the PSI as an effective program and suggested it be expanded – the Commission did not recommend placing PSI under the UN or any other multilateral regime, nor did it suggest it needed to authorized explicitly in international law.
The PSI is a critical national security initiative – organized by the United States and involving a number of countries – that uses diplomacy, intelligence, and other counterproliferation tools to stop the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The PSI was a key deterrent to Libya’s nuclear weapons programs, and its dismantling was responsible for uncovering the nuclear “black market” run by Pakistani A.Q. Khan.
The Democrat proposal would force the United States to seek the permission of foreign governments before attempting to interdict illicit WMD material. And it would provide all members of the UN access to the strategies, routes, and participating countries in the PSI, undermining the effectiveness of the program.
Isn’t that wonderful? The mere thought of the tinpot dictators and kleptocrats of the world’s largest crime cartel, the U.N., sifting through classified material and having veto right over U.S. national security issues makes us all warm and fuzzy inside.
Somehow, His Majesty doesn’t think that the new Democrat Congress was elected with a mandate to transfer our sovereignty to a bunch of unelected terrorist sympathizers in Turtle Bay.
Then again, we DID vote for a bunch of lying, corrupt terrorist sympathizers in DC, so maybe they do have a point.
