Samantha Power: Obama UN Choice Wanted US to Invade Israel, Called US Jews Too Rich and Powerful

By Debbie Schlussel

Back during the 2008 Barack Obama campaign for President, the Democratic nominee got rid of campaign adviser Samantha Power after she called Hillary Clinton “a monster,” and a 2002 video, below, came to light, in which she called for the U.S. to invade Israel. But everyone knew that she was still advising Obama behind the scenes and has been to date. And, today, Obama made that fact official by leaking to the media that Power is his choice for new U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, as he moves Susan Rice to National Security Adviser (hey, we’ve already had one incompetent Rice as NSA Adviser, so why not another?). What is even more offensive, though, in the video and gets less play is Power’s anti-Semitic comment about Jews being too rich and politically powerful in the United States. She talks about how her suggestion for invading Israel and spending U.S. money on bolstering a Palestinian State (which seems to be the only state she wants in what is Israel) will “alienat[e] a domestic constituency of [laugh, laugh, giggle, giggle] tremendous political and financial import.” She’s clearly referring to Jews and saying they are too rich and too powerful. I want to know, as a Jewish-American so stereotyped by her where my tremendous riches and power are and why, if my riches and power are so great, an anti-Israel Prez–who nominates scum like her–got elected.

By the way, if you look at Eva Braun’s, er . . . Samantha Power’s pics online, she seems like an egomaniac who fancies herself a supermodel of some sort. Sadly, we have to take this Jew-hater seriously.

There are enough far-left, pan-Muslim Israel haters in her native Ireland (where she grew up). Why must we have this crappy import, Ms. Power, pretending to represent America in the U.N.?


Don’t worry, though. Chuck Hagel became Defense Secretary by making similar comments. I’m sure this bitch will be confirmed by the Senate in spades.

***

One other note on Power: even though she clearly disdains Jews, she married animal rights nutjob and JINO (Jew In Name Only) Cass Sunstein, a law professor who argued that animals should be able to file lawsuits (and that the government should no longer be in the business of recognizing marriages). We’re betting that in that relationship, Frau Power is on top.

***

By the way, if you follow or in any way admire the idiocy of Washington Post faux-conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin, you should note how she eagerly supports this anti-Israel anti-Semite for the U.N. job. I’m sure the the Republican Jewish Coalition (a bunch of RINO-JINOs–Republican In Name Only, Jewish In Name Only) will keep inviting Jenny From the Dock to make speeches at their events for $10,000. Cha-ching.

And the irony is that many of these conservatives think the Obama presidency is weakening. You wouldn’t know it from the progress of the immigration bill, Christie’s embrace of the Democratic Party, Obama’s recent appointments, and aggressive behavior in instituting new regulations.

And I think that the “RINO” terminology is obsolete. They are not just Republicans in Name Only. This is what the Republican Party is today. And the party as a whole is getting rid of anybody who might potentially disagree with them. Bachmann is the latest victim, following Joe Walsh, and Allen West, who in spite of his defects, had the potential to create trouble for the Republican establishment. And it was Jim Bunning before that.

    Spot-on again, Little Al!

    A huge lie that has also been flourishing is how “extremist” the GOP have gotten. IF ONLY! What an effing joke!

    I had a brain explosion 2 days ago because I was catching up on old “Fresh Air” episodes and lying liar Norm Ornstein was on. I had no clue who that nerd was but when he was slinging how far-right the GOP has gotten and that they are the REAL problem it pissed me off fiercely. The host acted as if what he said was true! Disgusting!!

    Towards the end of the interview he admitted he was a registered Donk (as if I couldn’t tell!!!!) and made a big deal that he works for a “conservative think tank”. Puh-leeze!

    As a critical thinker, I was able to ascertain ALL that by deductive reasoning and knowing he was lying. But peeps still see that little geek as “bi-partisan” and NOT as the covert (but not very…) Donk activist he is.

    I looked up tweets with his name in it and sure enough he supports many FAR LEFT nonsense.

    But the meme is he is “Bi-Partisan” and the truth can be damned! Victory and spoils are in the evil hands of the Far Left!

    Skunky on June 5, 2013 at 11:38 am

    My opinion, Ron paul, tea party and ross perot types have setback the GOP. Just like ralph nader did to the democrats. GOP better get their shit together before they become irrelavent. get back to the core philosophy, stop pandering to get the illegal vote, they won’t vote republican no matter what! If you want to energize the party get back to basics, stop letting the DNC run the talking points schtick on The GOP. basics= less government, less taxes, strong military. Less interference in states business. Healthcare and all, states provide healthcare to their residents, not the federal government. send the money to the states and let them sort it out.

    sal on June 5, 2013 at 12:04 pm

      sal, you’ve identified precisely the wrong people as problems. Your list of positions are far from those of centrist elite Republican opinion. How you could be a regular here and so botch a reply is beyond me.

      skzion on June 5, 2013 at 2:40 pm

        That was badly written. What you seem to favor is NOT what mainstream Republican Party elites favor. Yet, you seem to think that the mainstream elites are just dandy.

    Victoryman on June 6, 2013 at 10:09 am

If only the morons who vote for President would think a little. Obama’s ties with Samantha Power were not exactly a “state secret” on his first election day.

I_AM_ME on June 5, 2013 at 11:08 am

I think LAs global thinking is right on.

Additionally, Obama surrounding himself with radical leftists is his strength. It is also his weakness.

The recent , Tea Party-gate, IRS-gate, AP-gate and others are to a large degree, a result of his appointment of progressives that he has recruited in key positions in his administration. In fact, after AP-gate the press should be taking another look at this Obama guy that they really never found anything about (or kept secret) prior to his election.

I hope that more of this shit will come to light, and he finds his black ass in real impeachment trouble.

Like Bill Clinton we may not be able to get rid of him, but we can take a swing at discrediting him, and tring him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Panhandle on June 5, 2013 at 11:10 am

I’ve been waiting for you to do a column on this odious beast. You did not disappoint.

Some I hate, but Frau Power I abhor. She’s a very dangerous nutter and how she and her ‘wife’ Madchen Sunstein (Madchen w/an umlat over the ‘a’…means ‘girl’ in German) coast under the radar is very troubling to me and also proves how weak the GOP is. They should go after this vile wench with double fists. They are not even going after her with Tinkerbell fingers!

I wanna know how someone as twisted as Frau Power can be seen as BOTH a hater of genocide and hater of Jews. What a mental case. Is that how she hides her Jew hatred???

Also, peeps need to talk about how she was behind the Libya invasion with her little R2P experiment to oust “despots”. She is not blamed for the fiasco it is and is never mentioned. I bet she thinks her folly is indeed NOT folly.

Google anything you can on her estrogen-filled ‘wife’ Cass Sunstein to read his insanity. Separately, they are evil and uber annoying…together they are an out-of-control beast.

Madchen Sunstein’s little ‘nudge’ philosophy has been flourishing under Obama-Putin. I hate them both like poison.

She, her wife and the Obama-Putin regime are why I am extremely pessimistic about the future of USA as we know and love it. I don’t like what I see but many are not seeing it and these two freaks have much covert power.

This t**t is no super-model. Manly looking pile of broken and twisted bones. I wish Ireland would take her back.

Skunky on June 5, 2013 at 11:19 am

What the hell did she just say???? Literally just rambled on…oh Liberal Democracy… really… Constitutional Republic was no where in that diatribe of drivel.

Wes Brown on June 5, 2013 at 11:40 am

She’ll feel right at home amongst the Jew haters at the UN. Heck, she’ll be able to spend way more time with Alice Walker at the David Icke reading circle.

Adam on June 5, 2013 at 11:50 am

Myself, i just imagine Obama snickering, He does whatever he wants, against the will of the Lawfully elected congress.
Appointing Susan Rice when there are many unanswered questions.
Shoving it into the face of the GOP. This guy has balls of steel.

sal on June 5, 2013 at 11:56 am

Thank you, Debbie, for sharing this important information.

David Weisskopf on June 5, 2013 at 12:15 pm

Wow. Just freakin’ wow. You know Cass Sundstein also believes that the money you have in the bank isn’t really yours, because after all, the government is just letting you use it. Why, without the infrastructure of government your money would be worthless.
Rev Wright is turning out to be about as close to sane and normal as Obamao’s associates get in this Frankenstein Presidency.

Joe Guiney on June 5, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    I guess starting a reply with “wow” has become commonplace here among the regulars. Used to be we could identify nitwits just with this one datum. Oh well.

    skzion on June 5, 2013 at 2:46 pm

      skzion–you got a problem?

      Joe Guiney on June 5, 2013 at 4:01 pm

        Not really, Joe. It’s just that I think fondly of the days when anyone who started his comment with a “wow” was a leftist moron. This provided me entertainment that I no longer have.

        skzion on June 6, 2013 at 3:14 pm

          Okay then. Next time I’ll have my editor go over the final draft and redact all those egregious style errors before I submit my comments to Kirkus for careful review.

          Joe Guiney on June 6, 2013 at 5:06 pm

          Joe, I apologize for not realizing that you were a professional writer, and for Kirkus no less.

          skzion on June 6, 2013 at 6:50 pm

I think it’s clear, that if the current trends continue, at some point it won’t be safe for Jews here in the U.S.

No dhimmi fool like some on June 5, 2013 at 7:07 pm

I just don’t understand how any westerner can side with any muslim of any sort and be so strongly anti-Israel. We need to educate our people about Islam, because they don’t seem to get it, even when they see muslims killing nonmuslims all over the world. They don’t get it because of the lies, propaganda, transference mothods, apology stances and Jew hatred of the talking heads on TV. Our pols are weak and dhimmified and it’s time for the people to wake up and do what our government refuses to do. Islam is the cancer of the human race and that should be the talking point! Islam is the most evil idiology ever, and something needs to done about it.

Red Randy on June 5, 2013 at 8:05 pm

She reminds me of Lena Dunham in that disgusting political ad that she did for Obama. So odd and strange and arrogant.

What a lunatic. And she’s just saying out loud what Obama thinks in his little pea-brain.

McCain has given Powers his seal of approval. The prison guards in Hanoi either beat all of his brains and guts out, or they did not beat him enough.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 5, 2013 at 9:12 pm

Any gov’t bureaucrat that would allow herself to photographed as though she were a Hollywood starlet is a person who is neither serious nor mature.

Matt on June 5, 2013 at 9:16 pm

Samantha Powers is a mental defective who would never dare to appear in a public forum to debate anyone remotely knowledgeable about the Middle East. Thus, you will only see her on strictly Leftist venues; and then, she will only be willing to be fed spongeball “questions”–as even softball questions would be too hard for her.

Furthermore, listening to her Leftist Swill is a mishmash of ideological gobbledygoop that, combined with her pretentious pose as a pseudo-intellectual, evokes a mood that I can best characterize as pukeatorious. But, if not for those “qualities,” she would never have been received as a darling at Harvard, that is so enamored of Leftism, that they no longer even require any standard of intellectual rigor of their stars, however feeble.

Although I understand that Powers is married to Cass Sunstein, I suspect that their marriage is strictly one of appearances, much as I suspect SC Justice Roberts’ marriage to be. And, if by chance, Sunstein and Powers do have some sort of sexual relationship, it would likely qualify for a mention in one of the chapters of Dr. Richard von Krafft-Ebbing’s “Psychopathia Sexualis,” if the psychological experts ever get around to creating a much needed update of that classic book–given the growth and development of new sexual perversions in today’s “culture.”

Ralph Adamo on June 5, 2013 at 10:31 pm

Hmm, Power’s commonplace anti-Semitic comments about rich Jews are more offensive than the fact that she advocated the invasion of Israel and is now Obama’s nominee for ambassador to UN.
We’ll see about that.

I say common place because John Kerry has said more or less the same thing along with many others.
Says U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry
“People in Israel aren’t waking up every day and wondering if tomorrow there will be peace because there is a sense of security and a sense of accomplishment and of prosperity.”
He’s very frustrated by that.

Anyway I guess the important take away from this is that there are a few RHINOs veering left.
Have to say the Dems have people well trained. They tell us they want to destroy us and we start blaming Republicans left and right.
Stockholm syndrome indeed.

Zarus on June 5, 2013 at 11:07 pm

What’s really breathtaking about this video is that this self proclaimed expert know nothing thinks she’s qualified to manage a lemonade stand let alone the Middle-East peace process.
At least she’s honest enough to admit she couldn’t get the job done her way without a military invasion force.
Wonder why none of those great minds considered starting a war with Israel before? Must be because they’re Jews.
Silly cow.

Zarus on June 5, 2013 at 11:33 pm

“…she called for the U.S. to invade Israel”

That’s both nauseating and disconcerting to hear someone (other than muslims, of course) calling for aggression against Jews and the Jewish State.

I guess one of the byproducts of demonizing white,Euro culture by ignoring it and the concomitant celebration of minority “achievements” (which is soft racism, anyway) is that people forgot the lessons shown to the world in WWII, vis-a-vis Nazi antisemitism.

DS_ROCKS! on June 6, 2013 at 12:26 am

    Sadly, this position (and nothing else, for that matter) will ever persuade most Jews from supporting the Dems.

    Of course, one could argue that there are very few actual Jews, anymore than there are too many real Catholics.

    Prometheus on June 6, 2013 at 10:18 am

Watched the video. Pure gobbledy gook. These psuedo intellectual liberals never say a damn thing. The palestinians don’t want a state. They already said so, idiot liberal.

David Lanham on June 6, 2013 at 1:12 am

Drudge Report published that photo of her adjacent to a link to a story, “Transgender Navy SEAL Publishes Book Entitled ‘Warrior Princess.'”

I honestly thought the photo was of the transgender SEAL.

Charlie on June 6, 2013 at 3:20 am

How about Power show us all how wonderful Muslims are by her taking a trip ALONE to the MIddle East without bodyguards and see how well she fares when visiting Arab countries vs her experience travelling alone to Israel. I’d rather have rich and powerful than rape and pummel. Ironic how she supports the world’s most misogynistic region over Israel. In Israel, women are more than equal and hold great power positions and liberalism runs amuck. The Arab world is the antithesis of what libs and progressives claim to believe in as far as social issues. Amazing hypocrisy on Power’s part.

Dina K on June 6, 2013 at 9:20 am

Powers only represents the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel thinking and beliefs of the Golfer-in-chief. They both hatched from the same evil egg. We are judged by the company we keep. Among the Vacationer in chief’s friends are “Rev.” Wright, Farrakhan, Latin American communist dictators, Islamic terrorists, etc. Look at his “Big Three,” Lurch Kerry, a legend in his own mind, Hagel, who could never run an elevator because he’d have a problem remembering the route, and the islam worshipping quisling, Brennan. Power, and of course Rice, will dovetail nicely into this group of traitors.

Victoryman on June 6, 2013 at 10:17 am

If you’re too depressed at Samantha Power being appointed the U.S. AQmbassador to the U.N., just read the 92nd Psalm.
Does anyone besides me remember that “Samantha” was the name of a WITCH on a ’60s SITCOM?

Miranda Rose Smith on June 6, 2013 at 10:26 am

The weirder someone is, the more liberals admire them; Donna Shalala, Robert Reich, Janet Reno, Geithner, Joycelyn Elders, Kagan, Ruth Ginsberg, Power, Napolitano, Sebelius, and on and on and on. If you are a goofball, liberals will infer some kind of brilliance on you. Same with NPR, like Terry Gross. What a weird little woman. Liberals are just complete and utter idiots. And the people they admire never have any expertise in anything! They usually have never achieved anything in their lives, they simply stay in school their entire lives and pretend to be smarter than everyone else. It’s a complete ruse!

David Lanham on June 6, 2013 at 12:09 pm

It seems the Obama regime just gets worse and more dangerous in every respect almost daily. I remember an editorial from the London Daily Mail from January of 2009 that is still applicable to today. To read it go to:

So called conseevatives and Israel supporters like Alan Dershovitz are advocating for Samantha Powers.

Surprising and unfortunate.

sanjay on June 6, 2013 at 1:54 pm

@Sanjay

Dershowitz always believed in the importance of earning brownie points with the left.
This is very important because when the two state solution he drools over can’t be achieved by diplomatic means it’s very necessary to have a humanitarian pretext to forcefully intervene in a nation building exercise.
Nation building exercises have been so wonderfully successful in places like Iraq and this is their chance to turn Israel into Iraq.

This administration has been disastrous in every policy objective it’s tried to accomplish so why wouldn’t they look for another disaster in Israel while there’s still time?

I would be looking at this very seriously living in Israel.

Zarus on June 6, 2013 at 3:01 pm

Liberals are big fans of problems from hell. Never let a crisis go by unexploited as they say.

Zarus on June 6, 2013 at 3:06 pm

Interesting that in the video, Powers admits that Israel has NOT engaged in genocide, but she STILL wants to invade.

She really is an idiot and totally ignorant in her area of supposed expertise. But then her purpose is not to advance the US interest, however defined.

skzion on June 6, 2013 at 3:20 pm

As most readers of this website well know, Senator John McCain, the New Republic (including former editor Martin Peretz, and even the Jewish Anti-Defamation League are NO friends of Israel. They are Leftists regardless of what they call themselves, and today, that automatically means they are not pro-Israel, an ironclad principle that holds almost as surely as night follows day. I find it beyond annoying, therefore, that other media sources will go with the completely false premise that they are pro-Israel, and then cite them as “support” for other false propositions that suggest that “seemingly” anti-Israel individuals are really “okay.”

Ralph Adamo on June 6, 2013 at 3:41 pm

@Ralph

No surprises that Al-Qaeda McCain supports Powers’ nomination.
They’ll probably be going for intervention in Syria.

He’s been travelled illegally into to Syria to have deep discussions with Gen. Salam Idris who’s forces are backed by Al-Qaeda according to the New York times.
That’s when McCain isn’t posing for photo shoot opportunities with known Syrian kidnappers.

There’s always a real witches brew percolating when McCain’s involved.

Zarus on June 6, 2013 at 4:01 pm

These are the genocidal maniacs McCain wants to save from Assad probably through armaments deals so they can get busy running the country and murdering more people.

@Skzion
The left sees Israel as the main stumbling block in the middle-east. They want to remove the source of conflict as they see it so they can cut rational deals with a more rational Muslim brotherhood.
That’s literally how stupid they are but in their eyes they are acting in their own international interests I think.
Israel is expendable in pursuit of that fantasy.
This is the left and this is Allen Dershowitz prince of peanuckle appeasement.

Zarus on June 6, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    Oh no doubt, Zarus. Typically, though, ‘RTP’ is associated with situations that are defined as genocide. Frau Power indicated that she did not believe this to be the case for Israel, which makes her advocacy of military aggression against Israel even more obviously anti-Semitic than usual for the anti-Israel crowd.

    She’s quite the nasty piece of work.

    Of course, the sleazy government of Israel is relying on “back channels,” when any self-respecting government would make clear that her selection was an unfriendly act.

    Finally, she’s really full of shit because the US has no intention of challenging a nuclear power, certainly not one with a triad. Nor will the US forgo the intelligence and military benefits of a good relationship with Israel. So, this malevolent person is stupid to boot.

    skzion on June 6, 2013 at 7:04 pm

McCain and RHINOs like him are incapable independent thought.
They are only capable of chasing the political centre to the places they think it is trending.
That’s means they will veer sharply left just to stay the correct distance from the radical left.
Veering sharply left means they will not friendly towards Israel.

The hard left can no longer abide the existence of Israel whatever it may have to pretend to the general public.

This is why the hard left has to be confronted.
It’s useless to go after people like McCain at the moment no matter how much of a worthless RHINO he may be.

Zarus on June 6, 2013 at 5:30 pm

@skzion
What’s clear is that the US is not prepared to prevent a non-nuclear power from becoming a nuclear power in the region.
Nuclear proliferation suits them because they are literally insane.
Their approach is to democratize the nuclear playing field.

What they are doing is intentionally destabilizing the region.
So it’s not necessary to confront Israel directly because their effort is to create a situation where Israel’s hand is forced.
So that Israel is brought into line with the role they have determined she is supposed to play.
At the heart of Powers’ argumentation is the idea that Israel has not learned its place in the region just as powerful Jews have not learned their place in America.

They have a lot of flexibility here because relations with America are as important to Israel as much as the other way round.

Powers has a history of making inflammatory remarks and then disowning them after the damage is done so people are fully justified in exercising their own judgement when it comes to her proclamations.

She played a key role in the Libyan intervention so she already has one confirmed disaster under her belt.

What Powers is going to represent I think is a convergence of the role played by the US in the UN with that played by Arab block countries.
I think she will be consolidating their base with US support although it may not be overt.

Zarus on June 7, 2013 at 12:55 am

I don’t think the senate will confirm her Debbie, so on that I disagree with u, if im wrong I will admit it, I will call my senators tomorrow to ask them to filibuster her confirmation and block it

Clinton Alexander on June 7, 2013 at 1:44 am

It’s funny, because when I saw that 2002 video, the first thing I jumped after the invading Israel comments were her references to those all-powerful, super-rich Joooooos. When someone with this level of education and influence makes comments like this, speaking in an articulate manner on a “respected” show, it is 1,000 more harmful than the average nut ranting on the Internet because people like this are respected. This is just a dressed-up version of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and it’s sickening.

On the other hand, she’ll fit right in at the U.N. with these types of Jews!

@Clinton Alexander – I wish I shared your optimism that she won’t be confirmed. But as the Chuck Hagel case showed, being openly hostile and bigoted toward Israel and the American Jewish population is no barrier to a cabinet position in this administration.
