UN warns it is running out of cash

AT: Cue the world’s smallest violin. Member states at the United Nations are delinquent on their payments to the body, and as a result, it is contemplating cutting expenses. Leah Barkoukis reports at Townhall.com:

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres is sounding the alarm to members about the world body’s “troubling financial situation,” urging them to pay up.

“Our cash flow has never been this low so early in the calendar year, and the broader trend is also concerning; we are running out of cash sooner and staying in the red longer,” he said in a letter to staff, reports FoxNews.com.  more here

  1. “Well, hate to let you go. Thanks for all the help. Hope things work out, and if we need anything else, we’ll give you a call…”

  2. What? The world’s most anti-Israel hate group with no moral compass and no real purpose is going broke. I am so sad…not!

  3. They just need to hire the $20 prostitutes instead of the $2000 ones.
    Suck it up suckers, everybody’s Trimming fat.

  4. First expense to cut: Rent on that UN Building.
    Move the hell out to quarters you can afford.
    Like somewhere in Somalia

  5. Then they”ll all just have to get out and find a real job.

    They too can thank Trump that employers are hiring.

  6. There isn’t one single thing the UN does that’s essential.
    It’d be fine by me if they cut expenses 100%. All I ask is don’t let DeBlasio get his thieving hands on that Manhattan real estate, and I’d kind of like to have a blue helmet to use for spud gun target practice.

  7. Pack your trash and move to Brussels with the rest of the tyrant wannabe’s.
    On the down side work for NYC’s hookers is going to to be slim, they’ll be on the bread lines with the parking ticket troopers.

  8. Huh. Must be tough now that the U.S. isn’t going to foot the bill for all of their extravagant lifestyles and other useless to the world bullshit. Want money? Get the other nations to pay their fair share. We are done paying for everything and getting nothing.

  9. The concept of a world order is unachievable in todays world. Smaller shithole countries just see an opportunity to milk funds from the more fortunate. The existing den of thieves is costly to the US taxpayer and to the city of New York. We do not need this cabal of spies and parking meter scofflaws in our territory. If the UN is to exist at all place it on an island in the middle of nowhere.
    So much money has been wasted on the idealistic concept of a governing body for the planet but the reality is that we simply are not ready to co-exist and I sincerely doubt that we ever will be.

    It would be very interesting to find out which countries are paying their dues or commitments. The amounts must be staggering and probably have gone unpaid for years. I know that countries can lose voting rights if they have unpaid dues but do not know what the grace period is. I seriously doubt that countries in crisis such as Venezuela or some African nations are current.

  10. Hey UN, don’t you mean you are running out of “Other Peoples Money”? Go broke, die off, get lost, go set up shop in Iran.
    Just get the hell out of here.

  11. Good. Let’s help by pulling out ALL of our financing to this corrupt organization, kick them out of the USA and give their building to the VA for a hospital.

  12. Isn’t that sorta like a tapeworm whining that it ain’t gettin enough to eat?
    Or a cancer complaining that it’s running out of healthy cells to infect?

    Get in line with the “sanctuary” cities suing to keep the Federal “grants” coming while violating the Constitution.

    Fuck Off, Eat Shit, and Die.

    We have no need of you – ANY of you!

    izlamo delenda est …

  13. Now is the time to evict these socialist bastids once and for all. Send ’em to Hell, or Venezuela. Whatever’s closer….

  14. How is Iran or North Korea or Zimbabwe supposed to effectively oversee the Human Rights Council without our money????

    We’re setting them up for failure!

  15. The UN potentates need to immediately slash all salaries, benefits and services 50% across the board and then they really need to get serious (we can help them along by slashing our donation by 90%)!

  16. If only this were not lie #985,685,745(give or take) from the UN! A man of faith would say, “God is in the process of saving the world!”.
