Benghazi and Obama´s
Ambition to Be U.N. SecGen

American Thinker, by James Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 5/25/2013 9:20:44 AM

Washington rumor has it that Obama wants to be U.N. Secretary General. There are several reasons that make that likely, and if it´s true, it throws new light on a lot of Obama´s oddities -- including his Royalty Bows, his Apology Tours, his Muslim Sellout, and the Benghazi Cover-Up. But first -- why would Obama be planning to become the chief of the U.N. before he has even finished his second term?

This NEEDS to be a ´Must Read´. The only thing worse than an Obama Presidency would be an Obama-led UN attacking us from all sides. But if there is a shred of justice in the world, Barry Bozo will be too busy defending his indefensible crimes against the country and hopefully finding himself doing time with the other criminals in his employ. We can only hope that will be the case.

Slight correction to the article. He does not want to be UN Secretary General. He wants to be King of the World.

After taking down America from the inside it would even be more fun to continue the trip from the outside. He´s black, inept, basically borders on stupid, and hates America and Americans. What´s not for the UN to love.

The Secretary-General may not be a citizen of any of the Security Council’s five permanent members: China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Hmm.

Only way that Obama could pull off becoming the U.N. SecGen is to admit finally that he is not now nor has ever been a US citizen and was not qualified to be President.

Unfortunately, he would be perfect for the job at the UN.

Always, the same questions rise to the surface. So what is going to be done about and who is going to do it? The Republican Party seems to be feckless. The Elites seem to be satisfied with the way things are and offer excuses (the Senate will block anything we do) instead of coming up with answers. The House is not powerless, it just seems to act that way.
Issa has a bad habit of putting on a great show and then stopping short. Sigh, maybe this time will be different. BHO has been up to these tricks for 41/2 years and still he gets his funding with no audits or accountability. The House has the power to set conditions on appropriations, but never does. The Repubs cry about what BHO is bankrupting the country but who appropriates the the funds? It just seems like madness with no end.

Caliph, poster number 2. Caliph of the World Caliphate. He plans to leave the U.S. subservient and vulnerable to the World´s threats and try to make them as dependent on the U.N as much of the free world has become dependent on the U.S. the past fifty years. Then he steps in, further tightens the restrictions the U.N. has been setting against ´Islamophobia´ and use the world courts, our monstrous debt and weakened state to make us bow to the crescent.

With him as Caliph of the World Caliphate.

Mr. Iraninan President, ´I´m-a-Mad-Dog´, or whatever his name is, claimed to have met the 12th Immam, well back before the 2008 elections. Where was Obama back then? I don´t mean what he was doing (minor state senator, I think) I mean where was he, physically? Could Obama be setting himself up as this apocalyptic super-theocratic Moron?

While admitting my limited knowledge of this issue, it was my understanding that the 12th Imam was supposed to come out of a bottomless pit (woops, I meant a well) and this Imam could only advance the Islamic Caliphate until and unless the US military is destroyed.

FTA. "Collusion with radical Muslims is standard in this administration. That is completely, profoundly cynical, or it is simply aiding the enemy."

"There are many reasons for that collusion, but protecting the United States is not one of them. The policy of appeasement and treachery protects radical Islam and endangers the West."

Historically, he never finishes what he has started; he always has bailed before the "final accounting" has been done on his jobs. It would be easy to see him resigning the Presidency (ahead of the messy investigations) to take his next job, at the UN.

James Lewis and #5 & #9, he would confirm this by saying, "I have no intention of being Secretary of the U.N., and a far as I know they have not asked me." After that we might see a darkening of the pencil thin mustache, or a certain flag flying over the Capitol, or balloons about a possible conversion ["I still cannot get the glorious music of the minarets out of my mind."] He wants the world to know him, but on his schedule. Needing a forum for that last big time solipsist-leftist statement he so wants to give, maybe he actually responds to a subpoena where we get some new age Shellean version of "To realize the perfectibility of man we must be our brother´s keepers. We are the world. And so,´Ecce homo´ -- behold me, with my unsealed documents." Other heavier triggers? Syria loads the nuke in plain sight and Israel levels Damascus [Isaiah 17:1]. Or Billy Graham dies just as a little man pops out of a well in Teheran -- and the little man is Obama. BTW, when histories are written, men will record that decent Americans, creative if prisoners of their era, actually considered these thoughts.

...the problems we face now are more than likely becuase 0bama has never truly fulfilled any job he has held. Losing interest in the job he holds, looking for his next step onward and upward. Bad state rep, poorly perfoming US Senator and now being shown as a complete failure as the top executive...

This kind of leadership should make him a good fit for the UN. He should rethink the UN job because he and Moochie wouldn´t have the perks that are their right like AF1, AF2 etc, and numerous vacations.

A while ago our esteemed president proclaimed that he was drawing a red line in the sand that if Syria used gas on the protesters he would order dire consequences to Assid and company.

New DOD chief Chuckie Hagle announced the Syrians had indeed use poison gas ----
but where is Obama´s dire consequences threat?

Maybe he was once again just trying to puff himself up with empty words and threats.

This is a brilliant look at reality by a fresh, take-no-prisoners writer, JAMES LEWIS. It´s like the lights went on in the last scene, and suddenly we knew who the murderer is. Yeah. Corrupt Obie and corrupt UN. Also, look at it this way: it´s all about real estate. Throw the UN out of America. These commies shouldn´t be here in the first place. Let Nobama be the head of the damn UN and live out his dictatorial fantasy life in the Panama Canal Zone or some other bug infested disease ridden tyrant´s country. Get the UN out of here NOW ! Enough of these unpaid parking tickets, and phony immunity pushed to the limit. We house, we pay huge bucks (millions that have not been in the TV news for too many years) for these ingrate anti Americans to live like potentates, each stealing the money from their own countries of origin. Get these UN bums out of here before Bloomberg adopts them and buys the UN building for them to keep ! Obie´s counting on New York as his next base of fashionable operations. Dinner with Diane Sawyer or Steve Pelley, Whoopi, Letterman, all those hooded sheiks. Get to go to all the slick VIP NY parties, ride around in limousines, wear silk sashes and a chest full of fake UN medals, spend lots of other people´s money (that can´t be traced). What a deal for Obie and Mooch. Hey, then Mooch runs for senate just like Evita Clinton. Perfect for socialist New Yorke. With more crooked money, they buy a New York mansion
now that Chicago is out of fashion.

I wonder if he gets to keep Secret Service protection if he does become UN SecGen - I doubt it.

He will have an even larger target on his back, with even more opportunities for even more assailants.

29 is on the right track.

This would work is Obama resigned the Presidency after 7.5 years. His birth records would be leaked to cause this.

Biden is elevated to President, pardons Obama, Holder, Hillary and anyone else involved in Benghazi, IRS, Phone Records, etc., etc. controversies. (known and unknown)

Hillary would be named VP to serve the Obama/Biden term and run as an incumbent in 2016 - if they could talk Biden into not running.

Obama would move to Kenya, and after a short period of time, be eligible to be the Caliph of the UN.

Because that´s how he rolls. He has never served out any term, with the exception of his first presidential term, before he moved on to the next higher office. No doubt in my mind he wants to be Sec Gen of the UN. He can rule the world from there and not have to worry about silly things like accountability and constitutions.

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

The moral blindness of the American Ruling Class is on display. The Washingtonian Magazine, a glossy lifestyle and politics rag, has published a fawning profile of DC power couple Jay Carney and Claire Shipman that was a bit more revealing than intended. At the top of the piece was a photo of mom Claire with her son and daughter, flipping a fried egg in their beautiful kitchen/great room.

Two of the biggest and best-connected lobbyists in Washington, DC are divorcing each other, and in the process they are placing on the public record the amazing wealth that can be generated by helping rent-seeking powerful interests shape the laws and regulations that separate Americans into winners and losers as the state confiscates a fifth of our GDP and regulates much of the rest. Matthew Continetti chronicles the divorce of Tony and Heather Podesta in the Free Beacon, and it is arresting reading. If the name Podesta rings a bell, that is because Tony’s kid brother John is a former White

One of the guidelines of liberal propaganda is that if you are going to lie, lie big. Global warming, Obamacare, Romney’s a heartless guy. It might be time to add to the list the famous Anthony Porter exoneration in Chicago in 1999. Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday, Eric Holder offered an alarming new doctrine for the Republic: laws are only suggestions, and the real authority to enforce or not enforce them lies in the hands of the president and his cabinet officers. (snip) There is a vast amount of discretion that a president has — and more specifically that an attorney general has,” Holder responded. “But that discretion has to be used in an appropriate way so that your acting consistent with the aims of the statute but at the same time making sure that you are acting in

(snip) the zero-sum nature of racial spoils has become evident to erstwhile members of the Democratic coalition that runs California. Yesterday, revenge was exacted against Democrat Asian-American legislators by the blacks and Hispanics.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
