Left-Wing Idol Samantha Power to Replace Rice as UN Ambassador

Look out below! Donilon quits as National Ssecurity Advser. Rice replaces him and Samantha Power, of ‘Inavde Israel’ and ‘Clinton is a monster’ fame, nominated to take over as UN Ambassador.

Human rights champion Samantha Power is slated to replace U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, whom President Barack Obama appointed as National Security adviser after Tom Donilon quit on Wednesday. Power’s nomination, unlike Rice’s appointment, requires Senate confirmation.

Rice is a long-time supporter of Obama and was in line to be Secretary of State until Republicans bashed her for incorrect reports on the terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, where the American ambassador was brutally killed.

Donilon has been rumored for several weeks as wanting to throw in the towel after five years and charges of throwing around his weight.

Both Donilon and Power are part of the “clubhouse” atmosphere in the Obama administration. Donilon’s wife Cathy Russell was a former chief of staff to Jill Biden and is the State Department’s ambassador at large for global women’s issues.

Power, a Catholic, is married to Cass Sunstein, born into a Jewish family and a controversial liberal, whose views include abolishing marriage. He was appointed as President Obama’s information czar, and both he and his wife Samantha scare the dickens out of conservatives with their views that principles of democracy should not interfere with defending human rights, especially of those who are safely far away and do not challenge American influence.

Rice, during her term as Ambassador, said she spends an overwhelming amount of her time defending Israel, which basically meant voting against the Palestinian Authority’s insult to the United States’ efforts to force Israeli concessions towards what was supposed by a PA compromise for establishing itself as an independent country.

With Rice as National Security Adviser and Power as Ambassador, if confirmed, human rights will likely be a top issue.

Both women also are incredibly aggressive in their views of using force, Power much more so. Rice supported a NATO invasion of Libya, and Power has supported military intervention in both Libya and the Balkans.

And Israel.

Power has served as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights.

Her views, and those of husband Cass Sunstein, are wildly supportive of human rights, so much so that she said in a televised interview in 2002 that it might be necessary to bring in the U.S. Army to police Israel.

She has since regretted her remarks, denying that she really meant what she said. Ditto concerning her foul-language attack, which cannot be published here, in which she called Hillary Clinton a “monster” during the Obama campaign for the nomination as Democratic presidential candidate in 2008.

Her statement about Israel, which can be seen in the video below, was made after her interviewer fed her a soft-glove question that if she were a presidential adviser, how would she respond to events in Israel if “at least if one party or another [starts] looking like they might be moving toward genocide?”

The “one party or another” obviously is Israel, since Palestinian Authority terror is politically correct as a “human right,” so long as it does not spill into the streets of America.

Power welcomed the opportunity to express her views that the United States needs to make the Middle East safe for the United States, even if it means “alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import [Read: Israel]…or investing…billions of dollars, not in servicing Israel’s military, but actually investing in the new state of Palestine.”

She then dropped her bombshell that “external intervention” is needed.

“Unfortunately, imposition of a solution on unwilling parties is dreadful. It’s a terrible thing to do; it’s deference to [leaders] who are fundamentally politically destined to destroy the lives of their own people.”

She is not partial to Palestinian Authority Arabs.

Power is best known for her efforts to increase public awareness of genocide and human rights abuses, particularly in the Darfur conflict.

Although a darling of the left-wing, she is not shy to advocate all of the methods associated with tyrants.

Power has an itchy trigger finger.

She has said, “My prescription would be that the level of American and international engagement would ratchet up commensurate with the abuse on the ground.”

She also predicted before Obama became president that after taking office, he would change his mind on his promise to pull American combat troops out of Iraq. So far, her prediction was wrong, but considering the wave of terror that is engulfing Iraq, “It’s not over until it’s over.”

Power’s mouth got her into trouble over Israel, and her comments undoubtedly will haunt her in Senate confirmation hearings.

She might want to take Ritalin if she is confirmed as Ambassador. That might keep her from such embarrassing incidents such as her dumping on Clinton.

After the use of the famous four letter word and her description of Clinton as a ‘”monster,” Power acted as if some devil had taken over her.

“Of course I regret them [the comments],” she said. “I can’t even believe they came out of my mouth….in every public appearance I’ve ever made talking about Senator Clinton, I have sung her praises as the leader she has been, the intellect. She’s also incredibly warm, funny….I wish I could go back in time.”

Power’s outburst won her a dismissal from the Obama campaign.

  1. And leave it up to Obama to appoint a Benghazi suspect into a roll that immunizes her from further questioning, and expect that no-one should notice or say a word.

  2. Paul Aranson says:

    The left wing version of Dick Cheney to be Obama's Ambassador to U.N.
    Oy!

  3. We have a n extremely corrupt Machievellian man occupying our White House.

  4. You can fool some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, but NOT all of the people all of the time, BO.

  5. Charlie Hall says:

    Obviously the laws of lashan hara and motzi shem ra have been repealed. There are too many distortions here to list.

  6. Daniel Roberts says:

    Hahaha, President Obama has proved his flexible leadership style by trying to do exactly the same thing he tried to do six months ago… Promote incompetence within his own administration and call it progress. No surprise that a man who doesn't respect the intelligence of the American people would try to promote someone who lied to them. His excuse when it does work out? "The Republican's are more interested in playing politics than helping the American people."

  7. Grin Olsson says:

    The bottom line is that this lady's ideology is pro-Sunni Muslim without regards that the Sunni Ottoman Empire was broken up in WW1 for being extremely fanatical Islamic where 7 out of 10 million Balkan Christians were murdered not to mention the American genocide. The minority governments put in place at the time of the Ottoman breakup was to assure their fanaticism never rose again – ie: The Arab Spring. The facts are we should be supporting the Syrian government as well as trying to negotiate a long term settlement with the Shia sects of Islam.

  8. Jacob Alperin-Sheriff says:

    Burich Hashem!

  9. Anonymous says:

    Ms Power is a typical Obama appointee, ugly inside and out. She is a virulent anti-Semitic who's not qualified to clean up dog poop.

  10. Ben Wright says:

    Her statement about Isreal are correct. The people who run Isreal are fake JEWS. The Zionist JEWS have infiltrated every government.

  11. Ben Wright says:

    Listen to Benjamin Freedman and JFK about a group of people who want to fundamentally change America.

  12. Lloyd Bergner says:

    Samantha Power, an Irish activist and wife of Harvard-educated, self-hating Jew Cass Sunstein are a perfect match. They are Israel bashers and never miss an opportunity to denigrate and defame Israel. Ms. Power is a perfect choice to have a forum in the UN Hall of Shame.

  13. Tim Upham says:

    Read Samantha Power's Pulitzer Prize winning "A Problem From Hell," where she offers an expose on all the genocides, and the United States connection to them.

  14. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Why the surprise? She promotes a "US led NATO invasion of Israel" to take down the Jewish State and that is the goal of obama, the cult and the kapos! And who better to present that Democratic Party vision then an open Soros-paid for Jew hater!

  15. Alexander Marriott says:

    There is no such thing as a left-wing version of Dick Cheney–a gay marriage supporting, low tax loving, terrorist killer. Samantha Power believes terrorists are merely misunderstood good guys we should combat with UN accords and hugs.

  16. Richard Hode says:

    " Ditto concerning her foul-language attack, which cannot be published here".

    And why not? Is this a site where only the morally pure and sensitive come and that they would be shocked – shocked? That is idiotic.
