Obama to Name Samantha Power to UN Post
ABC News ^ | June 5, 2013 | Julie Pace

Posted on 06/05/2013 10:47:32 AM PDT by Wisconsinlady

A White House official says President Barack Obama will name former aide Samantha Power as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Power will replace Susan Rice, who will take over as Obama's national security adviser. The official says Obama will announce both appointments from the White House Wednesday afternoon.

Power is a longtime Obama adviser who worked on his 2008 presidential campaign and ran the human rights office in the White House. She left the administration in February but was considered the favorite to replace Rice at the U.N.

The official insisted on anonymity in order to confirm the appointment before it was publicly announced.

Oops. Looks like ABC and AP "forgot" to mention that Power is married to Cass Sunstein!

On July 4, 2008, Sunstein married Samantha Power, professor of public policy at Harvard, whom he met when they worked as advisors to Sunstein's friend and former colleague at the University of Chicago Law School,[40] President Barack Obama, on his presidential campaign.

Someone please NUDGE me when we get our country back from these evil people.

Secession is the only hope.I kid you not.In the 50 states + DC the parasites and the trust funded Maoists have come to outnumber the productive,decent people.In all but about a dozen states (and DC) the opposite is still true.I hate heat and humidity but I'd still live in NC,TN or GA if they were to secede.

Hell, he probably has no idea who she is and will have to meet her when he gets off the golf course . . . his unelected handlers have “named her to the UN Post.”

Here’s what I see in all this shuffling by Obama. I see him setting up a defense perimeter appointing his most loyal to positions of power their BS will have more credibility to the masses of uninformed, and/or stupid. I see the power of obfuscation, diversion, and plain ol’ lies being put into place in preparation for a battle to hold onto power.

Obama is preparing Obama/Chicago style for the worst, and our people better recognize what he is up to. These are people that believe they are a ruling government in a representative government Nation. They are wrong, and shouldn’t be handled with the kid gloves they have been thus far.

She once referred to Hillary as a “monster” so she has one redeeming quality anyway.

Secession won’t help anything, especially if someone else takes over the “superpower” role. Red China, the European Union (once they get their military—and they will eventually), Russia and the rest of them would be glad to carve up a disintegrating USA amongst themselves.

She was one of the main architects of the plan to topple Ghaddafi and she quit her WH position when things began to go south there.

These women are EVIL.

Power is one of the principal authors of the ‘Responsibilty To Protect’ doctrine (or R2P in nazispeak) being foisted on the UN by Soros. It was she who convinced obama to use the doctrine as a likely excuse to attack Libya.

Not only a traitor (to both Ireland and the USA), but a possible Muslim too. Sounds like she wants World War III, because all that centers around Israel and especially Jerusalem.

Samantha Power on Israel/Palestine from 2002:

“What we need is a willingness to actually put something on the line…and putting something on the line might mean alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import [Jews and Christians]. It may more crucially mean…investing literally billions of dollars not in servicing Israeli military, but actually investing in the new state of Palestine [which she would create]."

"In investing billions of dollars it would probably take also to support, I think, what would to be, I think, a mammoth protection force [the UN blue helmets]…a meaningful military presence because it seems to me at this stage — and this is true of actual genocides as well and not just major human rights abuses which we’re seeing there — but is that you have to go in as if you’re serious. You have to put something on the line and unfortunately the position of a solution on unwilling parties [invasion of Israel] is dreadful, it’s a terrible thing to do, its fundamentally undemocratic." [but she'd like to do it]

Discover the Networks: Samantha Power

In March 2011, Power was instrumental in persuading Obama to authorize military intervention in Libya, to prevent President Moammar Qaddafi's forces from killing the rebels who were rising up against his regime at that time. Power's counsel in this matter was consistent with her longstanding advocacy of the doctrine known as the "Responsibility to Protect" (R2P), which encourages the international community to intervene in a sovereign country's internal affairs -- with military force if necessary -- in order to thwart genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, or ethnic cleansing. The Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect (GCRP), which is the world's leading advocate of this doctrine, is funded by George Soros's Open Society Institute. Power and GCRP advisory-board member Gareth Evans -- who is also also president emeritus of the International Crisis Group -- have been joint keynote speakers at a number of events where they have championed the R2P principle together.

I am sure that she will read her talking points as passionately at the previous officeholder and will not do anything she is not told to do.

Government should have people of conviction with strong moral compass.

How sad.

That means she is either an IRA sympathizer or an actual member of that terrorist organization.

Don’t know Miss Powers, and when I am in NYC, I never go near the UN, nearly everywhere I will go, but not there. Do people in NY still think the UN “keeps the peace”?
