HR193 - American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017

Image from

HR193 - American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017 is sponsored by Congressman Mike Rogers (R- AL) and co-sponsored by eight (8) others (Walter Jones of No. Carolina, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Jason Smith of Missouri, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, John Duncan of Tennessee, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Raul Labrador of Idaho, and Alexander Mooney of West Virginia). This bill was referred to the full House, from the Foreign Affairs Committee in January (Jan. 3, 2017).

The bill's purpose is to repeal the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, termination of membership in the United Nations (U.N.) and closure of the U.N. Mission to the United States (U.S.) office, repeal of the U.N. Headquarters Agreement Act, halting assessed and voluntary contributions to the U.N., terminating both participation and funding for U.N. Peacekeeping operations, repeal of U.S. membership and participation in the U.N. educational, scientific and cultural organizations, repeal of the U.N. Environment Program Participation Act of 1973, repeal of U.S. participation in the World Health Organization, repeal of U.N. conventions and agreements, and "any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body of the United Nations." Thereby, essentially "Get(ting) US out of the U.N.," as so many billboard signs have touted for ever-so-very-long and restoring the lost "American Sovereignty."

Other than Nicki Haley, our current Ambassador to the U.N., who would really fight against this bill? Progressives? Liberals? Some NWO (New World Order) or OWG (One World Government) types? Not all of them, even. But this just seems like too much common sense, especially when one realizes the amount of power the U.N. has even domestically within the U.S. - can you say "black helicopters" flying over your cities and towns? And that is not just conspiracy theorists and John Birch-ers claiming that anymore, although the John Birch Society has touted the "Get US out of the U.N." line for multiple decades.

Granted, the U.N. has done a few things 'right' in their 60+ years. But, balance that with the encroaching loss of American Sovereignty in that self-same timeframe and the scales of justice are far, too far, out of kilter!

We therefore encourage all members of the IAP to contact their Congressional delegation and encourage them to support and approve HR193, as written, during the 2017-2018, 115th Session of Congress.
