I have to laugh at Toby Harnden of the UK Telegraph. He postulates about Президент Оба́ма‘s plans after the 2012 Election. It took him this long to figure out Оба́ма meant what he said when he commented about being a “great one-term President.”
After all, he too was blinded by the light from two years ago. He could have saved himself a whole lot of time writing this, had this not occurred. In any case, it’s very easy to figure out what he wants to do after he surrenders power: he’ll just fly up to Turtle Bay and take up shop as the next Secretary-General of the United Nations.
There, wasn’t that easy enough, Mr. Harnden?
Don’t get me started on الرئيس أوباما chairing the UN Security Council next month. I’m talking something a little more tragic.
One would think that, as a guest, the UN would get its Medical Services Division, with eight doctors and eleven RNs, licensed to practice in the State of New York. But that’s not the case, and their advice to anyone having a life-or-death medical emergency?
Call 911. I kid you not. The MSD budget is $38 million. Here’s their public statement:
“United Nations’ Headquarters is fortunate to be located in a host city with one of the most capable Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in the world….EMS support is regularly and effectively called upon to respond to medical emergencies occurring within the United Nations’ Headquarters’ Complex.”
Another waste of the US Taxpayers’ money, to say the least.
Who is this person, and why should you be concerned? It’s because Harold Koh is Президент Оба́ма‘s nominee to become the State Department’s legal adviser. He has public views which place World Law above the US Constitution. In short, he wants us to become subservient to the UN, and he doesn’t care how we get there:
“I’d rather have Blackmun, who uses the wrong reasoning in Roe to get the right results, and let other people figure out the right reasoning.”
Koh has to go through a Senate vote to get this position. If they pass him there, it would just be a matter of time until Оба́ма would appoint him to a SCOTUS position, where Koh could wreak even more damage to this country. That is why it will be gravely important for the Senate Republicans (are you listening, Senators McCain, Specter, Snowe, and Collins?) to raise the alarm and prevent him through every legal manner possible from reaching office.
Here’s a reminder from gmsc over at LGF:
Don’t forget – Saturday, March 28, from 8:30 to 9:30, is the Hour of Power!
Celebrate the progress of mankind by using as much electricity in your house as possible for that 1 hour!
Possible items you may want to switch ON:
-all household lights
-automobiles (your ride)
-put on oven’s self-cleaning cycle
-any/all kitchen appliances
To which I reply: Frak the neo-Luddites!
Now here’s an interesting event which takes place tomorrow evening at the United Nations, co-sponsored by SciFi: a panel discussion hosted by Whoopi Goldberg (thank God she didn’t appear on this show), with Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, and the producers, Ronald D. Moore and David Eick.
Sorry fellow Frakheads, this event is by invitation only. It’ll be interesting to see if they can actually discuss the show’s merits and shortcomings without metamorphing into an Оба́ма Worship session. At least we don’t have any Cylons of our own to deal with.
As Israel continues to kick the s**t out of Hamas with a ground offensive in progress, the 63rd President of the UN General Assembly, DFC Priest (and adherent of Liberation Theology), Miguel D’escoto Brockmann, is livid that the US vetoed yet again another bulls**t resolution condemning Israel:
“I think it’s a monstrosity; there’s no other way to name it. Once again, the world is watching in dismay the dysfunctionality of the Security Council.”
Is he that stupid to realize that George W. Bush is still President until noon ET on January 20th? Obviously, he is. The guy can also whine, bitch and moan all he wants about the Security Council. It wouldn’t surprise me if he wasn’t invited to any decadent UN diplomat parties for a short while.
And here’s another story to warm your icy-cold heart: the UN is reporting that North Korea’s food levels are dangerously low to the point where famine will once again hit the impoverished nation, thanks to flooding and poor harvests.
And we’re supposed to feel sorry for a country whose leader pours its entire resources into its military…and ultimately, a nuclear weapons program…and go in and feed the North Koreans? Here’s what the Good People of Rock Ridge have to say.
I don’t care if they blew up the Yongbyon cooling tower. The North Korean People are just sitting there and taking it and doing nothing about it. They’d better get up off their collective a** and depose the DFCs, or else they don’t deserve to have their own country. Just like Iran.
When I saw this article at work this morning, I chuckled softly because I know that with the UN on the case, the mystery (ya, RIGHT) of just who murdered Benazir Bhutto will never be solved.
Then again, we may not need to look any further than the little b*st*rd son of Osama, who was implicated by Bhutto herself before her death. He’s back in the news, this time penning a poem calling for the US and UK to be destroyed. And here I thought there wasn’t supposed to be any fun in Islam.
Now since that DFC Robert Mugabe has completed his total theft of the elections which were have supposed to have taken place in his country, the UN is now urging African leaders to negotiate a solution.
Excuse me for a moment while I shake my head and laugh my a** off….
There. This is the UN we’re talking about here too, that august body of world leaders, most of whom are interested only in maintaining their grip on power and to Hell with their subjects.
Do you think for a moment that the African Union will actually do anything about Mugabe? I would say not. Mugabe isn’t going anywhere, short of a total revolution which would be very bloody indeed…and would also include the arrest and execution of not only Mugabe himself, but that other DFC son of a bitch, Col. Mengistu Haile Meriam.
Well, in light of the fact that the cyclone which hit Burma a week or so ago may have killed a few hundred thousand people, which would dwarf the 2004 tsunami which hit Indonesia…comes this story that the Burmese junta has suspended and seized all foreign aid, and the UN has suspended aid to the country.
This better not surprise you that totalitarian governments don’t give a s**t about the People, only about remaining in power. No, liberals, don’t give me your mantra that the Bush Administration is totalitarian…the very fact that you can say that puts that lie to rest. What’s it gonna take for the REST of the Burmese People to get up off their a**es and send these guys to Hell?
One thing’s for sure. My stomach turned a few times over (which it was already doing last night) because these guys at the United Nations are coming up with new ways to keep the masses in their place. This time: encourage people in famished areas (or astronauts on long-duration missions) to eat insects to alleviate hunger.
UGH. Granted, insects can pack a lot of protein wallop, but still, UGH.
Meantime you can bet your bottom dollar (or euro, pound, yen, yuan, or what have you that ain’t American) that the top dogs of Turtle Bay can continue to dine on caviar and paté, sipping on champagne, and continuing to refuse to pay their parking tickets. Remember, with the elitists, it’s “do as we say, not as we do.”
Gee, I guess someone doesn’t want Kofi Annan to participate in talks between the various Kenyan factions, so one faction bugs his room. He found out about it and man, is he livid!
Just goes to show you how useless the UN has become. So much for his gravy train.
Now this is not funny at all…NYC prohibiting the UN Headquarters from hosting school field trips next year if they don’t bring it up to current fire and safety code. One would imagine the diplomats would take better care of a fifty-seven-year-old complex…but apparently they don’t, as the complex has 866 code violations on file, but due to Diplomatic Immunity, they don’t have to fix them prior to blowing almost $2 billion on an upcoming renovation.
Remember…this is where your Tax Dollars go. And I won’t even repeat what John Bolton mentioned about the top ten floors either.
Methinks I’ll be getting John Bolton’s new book here real soon…and here’s why:
NEW YORK — Former Secretary of State Colin Powell tried to change U.S. policy on Iran, aligning with European allies to offer “carrots” to Tehran to end its nuclear program instead of pressing for sanctions, says John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
His distress at watching Powell bend to the British, French and Germans was compounded when he saw Condoleezza Rice “wobble” on the Iran sanctions issue just a few months into her new job as secretary of state, Bolton says in his memoir released Tuesday.
There is something truly EVIL at Foggy Bottom, and has been for years…especially when it comes to the Middle East. If a Republican wins the 2008 Presidential Election, I hope Bolton is picked to clean out the State Department, or else it’ll be more of the same.
