Democrat women love to talk about how brave they are, don’t they? Usually it comes up when Donald Trump slams them on Twitter. Ah, yes. It’s so brave to bleat “I will not be silenced!” in response to a tweet.
But something tells me Kirsten Gillibrand or Elizabeth Warren couldn’t stand up before the Star Wars Bar Scene that is the United Nations and tell them to pound sand.
Nikki Haley is fearless.
Hell, compared to Kirsten and Pocahontas, she’s practically Wonder Woman.
[Sorry, I couldn’t resist; I finally saw Wonder Woman this week. And it is now my new favorite movie.]
You know, there are a lot of reasons why the Obama presidency was damaging for the United States.
And his obsequious pandering to the United Nations is definitely chief among them.
But it wasn’t just that Obama officials deferred to the UN. That’s bad enough. But they actually put US sovereignty aside if the United Nations demanded it.
Obama’s irrational fealty to “global cooperation” coupled with his startling naiveté left American foreign policy at the whim of America’s enemies.
Back in September 2014 after Obama’s ridiculous speech before the UN General Assembly, I wrote a column titled “Parsing Pusillanimous Piffle” (now available in my second volume of columns RANT 2.0: Even More Politics & Snark in the Age of Obama).
I said in part:
Obama’s 4,261 word speech was a signal to a very dangerous world that the United States of America will not lead through strength, will not seek to preserve and protect its own interests, and will only act if the frothing anti-Semites and tin-pot dictators represented at the UN are kind enough to agree.
“On issue after issue, we cannot rely on a rule-book written for a different century. If we lift our eyes beyond our borders – if we think globally and act cooperatively – we can shape the course of this century as our predecessors shaped the post-World War II age.” [Bold emphasis Dianny’s]
America led the way in the twentieth century, not because it was thinking globally and acting cooperatively, but because America sought its own interests. It fought to preserve and protect its own sovereignty and freedom.
America stands for the unalienable rights of all man. Life. Liberty. Property.
And by maintaining and preserving the sanctity of those rights within our own nation, we can be a help to the world. Only by putting our nation’s interests first, can we be a help to the world
Could you imagine how Obama or Samantha Power would have responded to yesterday’s vote against our moving the Embassy to Jerusalem?
Of course Obama never would have followed through on his own promise to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. But play along with me anyhow.
You don’t really have to imagine too hard. We all know how they would’ve reacted.
Samantha Power and Obama would have bent over backwards to appease this pack of anti-American cranks and psychos.
Obama’s greatest fault when it came to foreign policy was his own servile obsequiousness. He was a bootlicker – a fawning, subservient desperate to please those who despise the US.
And it was nauseating to watch.
But President Trump and Nikki Haley do not put the will of the United Nations over the will of the American people.
Nor would they ever surrender US sovereignty to that hodgepodge of hateful, money-grubbing, anti-Semitic cretins.
After eight years of prostrating, sycophantic ass-kissing toward America’s enemies, having an Administration that stands up to the UN and tells them to go pound sand is what I call Winning.
President Trump and Nikki Haley grasp one very salient point:
The United Nations needs the United States. But the we do not need them.
And that gives us a hell of a lot of leverage and a great deal of power – power and leverage that Barack Obama would surrender in a heartbeat.
But not President Trump. And not Nikki Haley.
It takes a great deal of courage to stand up for US sovereignty in the face of such coordinated opposition.
Obama was never able to do that because he worried too much about what the rest of the world thought of us.
Well, that and he pretty much agreed with the tyrants, tin-pot dictators and terrorists at the UN.
For eight years the United Nations got used to having a US President wrapped around their finger.
But things have changed. America the Superpower is back.
And the UN isn’t particularly happy about it.
But who cares?
If the United Nations doesn’t like it, they’re free to get the hell out and move their freak show elsewhere.
