Breitbart News Daily spoke with Governor Sarah Palin regarding her call for the United States to withdraw from the United Nations.
The interview began with Breitbart editor Raheem Kassam recalling a Facebook post that she made last June, where she first congratulated the Brits on their successful Brexit referendum vote to withdraw from the European Union, and then secondly suggesting that the time had come for the United States to withdraw in similar fashion from the United Nations.
Palin had written back on June 24th:
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…
The UK knew – it was that time. And now is that time in the USA.
The Brexit referendum is akin to our own Declaration of Independence. May that refreshed spirit of sovereignty spread over the pond to America’s shores!
Congratulations, smart Brits. Good on you for ignoring all the fear mongering from special interest globalists who tend to aim for that apocalyptic One World Government that dissolves a nation’s self-determination and sovereignty… the EU being a One World Government mini-me.
America can learn an encouraging lesson from this.
It is time to dissolve political bands that connect us to agendas not in our best interest. May UN shackles be next on the chopping block.
– Sarah Palin (June 24th, 2016)
Kassam asked how Palin was able to be "so ahead of the curve" in identifying "the similarity in terms of loss of sovereignty suffered by Britain in the E.U., and the U.S. in the United Nations."
"I think many of us have called for America to really step up and consider what it is that we are funding and supporting via the U.N., and how it works so hard really, against U.S. interests", the Governor replied.
"This is such an encouraging time" she continued, "where it’s not just us, but those across the pond too, are understanding that their nation’s sovereignty and security are on the line here with the ties that bind us to interests that really don’t further our agendas. So when the U.K. made its move, it was just another reason to call yet again for the U.S. to get the heck out of the U.N. and get the U.N. out of the U.S. Let’s get going on putting America first."
Palin dismissed a number of possible reasons for the United States to remain in the U.N., citing an overriding concern that retaining membership in the U.N. "essentially is inviting other countries to exercise veto power over us. Over U.S. national security measures." She ridiculed Secretary of State John Kerry for saying that U.S. security measures must pass a ‘global test’.
The interview turned to the the recent resolution before the Security Council that condemned Israel’s presence in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, a resolution formed with the assistance of U.S. President Barack Obama. “What does it say about the United States …that you have an administration not just willing to stab one of its most important global allies, Israel … but is being led … by countries like Venezuela?”, Kassam asked.
Palin answered, "I don’t think people have been understanding that either our leaders, unfortunately are caught lying in regards to orchestrating this non-supportive measure", referring to Israeli claims that the Obama administration was instrumental in guiding the passage of the resolution, "or we’ve been led by bad characters that certainly do not have America’s nor Israel’s interests at heart."
"It’s almost laughable" she said, "that the Left is so obsessed with Israel’s borders". She pointed toward the hypocrisy of an Obama administration eager to stab Israel in the back over border concerns, when that same administration has been so lax in securing "America’s porous borders".
Of the many possible ways for the incoming Trump administration to affect change at the United Nations, Palin was asked which of the strategies were best.
"Two ways to look at this", Palin replied. The first being her advice to President-elect Trump, calling for "the unshackling of the political bands tying us to the UN, and by exiting the UN, where injustice is actually rewarded … So I call upon President-elect Trump to lead that charge."
But Palin then broadened that responsibility beyond President-elect Trump’s shoulders, suggesting that the citizenry who’ve elected him also have a duty to advocate for a change in the way that the United States government has been tied to U.N. agendas.
The other way to look at this is, is it really going to be one person, one leader’s responsibility to do so?
Or is this going to be part of the revolution that we have just seen, that did elect Trump?
It’s our government.
It’s our money funding the lion’s share of the globalist circus.
It’s ‘We the People’ needing to rise up and make this a part of the revolution that we have just so benefited from.
‘We the People’ need to step up and lead this charge.
Direct our government.
Our bureaucrats and our elected leaders, work for us.
We are the ones that need to call for this ..
.. That the UN shackles be next on the chopping block.
