U.N. Gets New Oversight

Radical feminists’ dreams came true recently with the creation of U.N. Women, a new über-agency that will agitate globally for their pet projects using unrestricted funding from governments.

Yet in an unexpected twist, a Republican congresswoman will soon be in charge of the House Foreign Affairs committees that oversee U.S. involvement at the U.N.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) is the new chairman of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee. She is no pushover. An exile from Cuba, she’s a staunch critic of repressive regimes, and she’s adamantly pro-life.

After Republicans placed her at the helm, Rep. Ros-Lehtinen said, “I plan on using U.S. contributions to international organizations as leverage to press for real reform of those organizations, such as the United Nations.”

This is way cool! I hope she comes down on UN corruption early and often, while putting the UN on very short rations!
