Skip to comments.Obama's Latest Radical at the Defense Department
Posted on 05/12/2009 2:53:35 AM PDT by Cindy
On April 9th, op-ed columnist and Georgetown University law professor Rosa Brooks penned her final piece for the Los Angeles Times, the newspaper for which she had written on a regular basis since 2005. Her gig at the Times served as a nice steppingstone to a bigger and better professional frontier, namely her recent appointment by President Barack Obama to be an advisor to Michelle Fluornoy, the U.S. Undersecretary of Defense for Policy. At this moment in history, Brooks gushes, I cant imagine anything more rewarding than being part of the new team thats shaping U.S. policy.
Brooks credentials as a far-leftist are impeccable.
For one, she is the daughter of author Barbara Ehrenreich, the Honorary Chairwoman of the Democratic Socialists of America who has lauded Karl Marxs Communist Manifesto.
In 2004 Brooks served as a foreign-policy advisor to the John Kerry-John Edwards presidential campaign.
She also has been a special counsel to the president at George Soros Open Society Institute, which donates scores of millions of dollars annually to groups promoting open borders, a dramatic expansion of the welfare state, and the notion that America is institutionally an oppressive, imperialistic country. She was a consultant for Human Rights Watch, which reflexively blames the U.S. and Israel for the lions share of international disputes around the world.
She was a board member of Amnesty International USA, which likewise finds fault with virtually every American foreign-policy decision.
And she was a senior advisor to Assistant Secretary Harold Koh at the U.S. State Department during the Bill Clinton administration. Koh is an advocate of transnationalism, a concept that argues in favor of global governance as opposed to the constitutional sovereignty of U.S. law.

A further look at Rosa Brooks:
Will she get a clearance?
Barry is bound and determined to destroy America. He is the worst threat to freedom since Adoph Hitler.
I feel like I am a character in some sort of sci-fi movie. WTF!!!! The stuff this guy gets away with is incredible and the press treats it like it’s no big deal!
I consider myself to be an average American, married 3 kids, dogs, live in a house, my husband and I both work. Each day I wake up with the feeling of impending doom, and I feel like I am in protection mode. I have never felt the urge to fight like I do now. It really feels like the rug is going to be pulled out from under me!
Last year my son inquired about the military, he graduates in 2 weeks. Well, the Marines have been calling and today he is going to talk to them. He has been accepted to college, and has planned on trying school first, but he still wants in the Marines. He is 18 and I told him, PLEASE, no matter what they say, DO NOT RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND!!! I told him it is not that I would not be proud as can be for you to serve, BUT, serving under Obama will be a nightmare! He and his administration do not respect the military and they will try to use you.
I am ill over this guy.
George Bush II left a legacy of a broken economy, a series of idiotic decisions, a history of nonconservative actions, an economic collapse and an invading army of Mexicans and other foreign nationals.
John McCain was too old, too nasty and too stupid and ran one of the worse political campaigns in American history.
There is more blame to go around - political correctness which makes anything non-western, non-Christian and non-European American “GOOD” and everything else bad, an doctrinal system which has degenerated into a propaganda machine for the radical left, religious institutions which have been shanghaied by homosexuals, radical feminists and other counter-culture freaks, and a mainstream media which has become a propaganda organ for the hard left.
The system is broken. I don;t know how to fix it, or if it can even be fixed.
Obama is just the worst most recent symptom of a massive American social disease.
Who would have believed that only a few years after thousands of Americans were killed in a typical Islamic attack that a part-Arab guy of questionable citizenship whose first name is the name of Mohammad's horse would be elected president?
Comes with the job.
I’ll give her about a year before she leaves and goes and writes her book about how the Defense Department should be run.
It is the education system. All of those radicals are now the teachers. Daycare kids are now in the schools, many, not all did not have a strong family and they are easily lead.
Obama is just following the traditions of FDR and Truman by having COMMUNISTS working throughout the government, including the White House.
Ozero is more nauseating every day. I hate that man!
I hate that man!
I’m glad there’s someone else saying this. At the risk of being accused of 0bama derangement syndrome, I truly cannot stomach this POS. I can’t even listen to his voice when he speaks. Everyday there is another outrage coming from this administration. We are truly screwed.
The last time I heard the man speak was during the last debate with John McCain. On the night of the election, I turned off Fox News and never watched again. I cannot stomach seeing his face or hearing his words. I just get on here and read.
My gut told me there was something very wrong with this man even during the primaries. Now I feel like I am in survival mode. Waiting for the sh!t to hit the fan.
I despise him and to me he exudes pure evil. He reminds me of Damien from the Omen movies.
He and his disgusting party. The Rats, with Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Waxman, Schumer etc. are the lowest of the low.
