    Apparently there was a bill introduced to Congress asking for the removal of the US from the participation on the UN.

    You can read about it here:

    What do you think JW's will make out of this?

    From what I understand, these types of bills are introduced regularly. It is just because we have a nutter in the White House that people are suddenly calling these things out, as fear grips people.

    Apparently, not the first time it's been done:

    But with a president who wants to remove himself from NATO...

    JW: Oooh, you can see the end is so close. The bible prophesied that in the end they will be pushing and shoving."

    PATRON IN STARBUCKS: "Shove it!"

    JW: "Oooh, you can see the end is so close. The bible prophesied that in the end we will be objects of hatred by all the nations."

    "Peace and Security" anyone?

    An identical "American Sovereignty Restoration Act," intended to "terminate U.S. participation in the United Nations," has been introduced to the House of Representatives at the beginning of each Congress for the last twenty years since 1997. The 2017 and 2015 versions were sponsored by Rep. Rogers, the 2013 version by Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia, and the 1997 through 2011 versions were sponsored by Rep. Ron Paul of Texas (all Republicans).

    In each case, the most recently submitted "American Sovereignty Restoration Act" bill has been referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs (also known as the House Committee on International Relations) and languished there without ever being passed or brought to a vote.

    I think this is good news for the USA but bad news for the JW cult of course they will attempt to spin this into a positive development.

    Here is one reason why I think it is a good idea. The UN is maybe the most corrupt governing body on earth. It is a haven for political favors, get out of jail for free cards sold to the highest bidder and have not really been a body for peace. I know this personally because I have a family member who has worked at the UN for the South Korean international delegation.

    I also think the USA wants to no longer be the world police and this is another good thing. The USA has been profiting from wars that it made for too long. The USA has become part of the military industrial complex war machine and this is only getting worse.
