After the United Nations Human Rights Council voted Thursday to establish an investigation into Israel, Congressman Chip Roy, R-TX, defended an earlier demand that Biden defund the global body. He tells SaraACarter.com exclusively that the council has proven yet again to be biased.
“The United Nations’ so-called ‘Human Rights’ Council just can’t resist proving that it is nothing but a corrupt, Israel-hating propaganda club,” Roy said. “This most-recent council vote to establish an anti-Israel commission proves yet again why the US should not grant this body a single taxpayer dollar or legitimize any of its actions by rejoining it.”
The Council has yet to condemn the Chinese Community Party. Meanwhile, they’ve condemned Israel dozens of times. “The UNHCR does nothing but defend the world’s worst dictators and while libeling one our greatest allies,” Roy added. “Congress should immediately take up and pass H.R. 1021, which I introduced to block the United States from funding it.”
Roy introduced a bill in February to prohibit U.S. contributions to the United Nations Human Rights Council as the Biden administration looks to rejoin it, as reported by The Daily Caller.
The bill also seeks to rescind any outstanding contributions towards the UNHRC.
Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu also accused the council of having a “blatant anti-Israel obsession,” in a Thursday statement.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’
Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social, “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”
Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”
It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.
Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.
And the escalation of war is visible.
Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.
Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.
Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”
Morning. Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”
F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.
Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
