CONGRESS TURNS ON OBAMA – Makes Massive Move After Anti-Israel Vote

Throughout his sham of a presidency, Barack Hussein Obama has almost single-handedly ruined our relationship with our once-close ally of Israel. He made things even worse for us on Friday when he allowed the United Nations to condemn the West Bank settlers in a controversial vote.

Now, Congress is moving to cut off all U.S. funding to the United Nations after Obama allowed the anti-Israel vote to move forward. Congressional leaders told The Washington Free Beacon that Obama is already planning to take more action against Israel before he leaves the White House.

Fox News reported that Congress may also expel all Palestinian diplomats from the U.S. and distance themselves from the other nation that voted in favor of the measure. In addition, Congress is trying to freeze funds that Obama could use to make other moves against Israel.

“The disgraceful anti-Israel resolution passed by the UNSC was apparently only the opening salvo in the Obama administration’s final assault on Israel,” said Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas). “President Obama, Secretary Kerry, Ambassador Power, and their colleagues should remember that the United States Congress reconvenes on January 3rd, and under the Constitution we control the taxpayer funds they would use for their anti-Israel initiatives.”

“The 115th Congress must stop the current administration’s vicious attack on our great ally Israel, and address the major priorities of the incoming administration,” Cruz added, making it clear that he wants to work with the Trump administration to rebuild our relationship with Israel.

Senior congressional officials working on this have said that lawmakers on both sides of the political spectrum are furious at Obama for what he has done.

“Not content with spending the last eight years using the United Nations to undermine American sovereignty, the Obama administration has finally trained their sights on Israel and is trying to exploit this unelected and unaccountable international body to impose their resolution of the Palestinian issue on Israel,” one senior congressional aide told the Free Beacon. “Enough is enough.”

The source added that a full-cut off of U.S. funds to the UN is strongly being considered.

“A new administration will arrive on January 20th, but in the intervening weeks Congress has an important role mitigating the damage President Obama can do in his final hours,” the source said. “Why on earth would we throw good taxpayer dollars after bad in support of the UN, which has proven itself again and again utterly unable to encourage any positive progress? Just take Syria — if they were doing anything over the last five years, it should have been working out a fair and equitable adjudication of the Syrian war.”

“Instead, they’ve proven themselves utterly useless–in fact they’ve probably made a gut-wrenching catastrophe worse,” the source explained. “There’s no reason to think this action will turn out any more favorably.”
