Ambassador to U.N. Samantha Power
Misses Emergency Syria Meeting

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:harleynyc, 8/22/2013 10:10:21 PM

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power did not attend an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting Wednesday, Fox News reported. The meeting was scheduled to discuss an alleged chemical weapons attack on Wednesday. Power’s decision not to attend drew criticism due to her past statements on Syria. Power criticized the U.N. Security Council’s lack of action in Syria during her confirmation hearing. She also discussed the country in a Twitter town hall she hosted last week. A U.S. mission official told Fox News that Power was on a “pre-arranged trip” and

What´s the point of an emergency meeting when there´s no proof either way of an attack. No one has any concrete facts. I´m glad she wasn´t there. Less chance of her saying something stupid.

Powers and Obama worked hard to creat this war...they want Israel destroyed and its through Syria being turned to the Muslim Brotherhood that Israel is destroyed..just as Obama turned Egypt over and recent demanded that Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood be reinstated...and turned off the spigot of money until the Egyptian Military capitulates...Obama is underwriting a Christian Holocaus...and then on to his plan of destroying the Jews...Wake up America...open your eyes and think!!

I guess Øbama thought something about some stuff that was weird going on in the U.N that was kind of something or other and some other countries were trying to figure some stuff out about some place where something happened or didn’t happen, and she was incapable of dealing with it - so, she didn´t go.

Now the world tumbles randomly, ‘cuz America quit messing with it or something-

Oh, look! Is that a squirrel?

Obama got caught smuggling arms to these people ,now he wants to do it in open air. But first,he and the rebels had to manufacture a crisis that demanded world attention.Power is a big radical Islam supporter and whatever she said or did at the meeting would make that obvious,so she ducked it.

But what does this say about Obama,not taking the situation serious enough to tell this woman to drop what she´s doing and attend the meeting?

The same people who created all these civil wars are now being asked to fix them.

No one in the Obama administration has a sense of responsibility or work ethic and that includes Obama. They are a bunch of know-it-alls. Their minds are already set on their agenda regardless of the situation. Therefore, there is no need to attend meetings. It is a waste of their time.

On the Fox show The Five yesterday they were speculating that ´she was probably on vacation so it´s not her fault´. Seriously? The Middle East is a powder keg right now and Powers has a huge responsibility. Notwithstanding the inconvenient truth that Obama´s staff are for the most part embarrassingly incompetent, it may have behooved this woman to put down her Mai Tai and call the office.

It also appears that 0bama has missed his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) every day this week:

http://www.whitehouse.gov/schedule

Last week, there was nothing/nothing on the schedule except for Thursday, when he delivered a statement on Egypt. Now some might protest, saying, "But he was on vacation!" Ladies and gentlemen, do you think that George W. Bush, for all his faults, missed the PDB when he was on vacation? I very much doubt it. (And I´ll bet that Ronald Regan didn´t go two weeks without it, either.)

My assessment: Those who run Obama were far along in their plan to send US forces into Syria to put the Muslim Brotherhood in power there. Done deal. US supplies and personnel all ready to go. Then the Muslim Brotherhood was overthrown in Egypt. That threw the plan into question. They are still proceeding with it, but the plan is being re-evaluated as they recalculate the next move. Now the issue may have become not how to put the Brotherhood in power in Syria, but how to save the Brotherhood from other defeats now that they have been shown to be vulnerable. Wright was TOLD to stay away from that meeting because there is no revised plan yet. Nothing to sell yet.

Anything to escape taking a position like most civilized countries have already done. Anything to appease the Muslim brotherhood. He will study this untill it goes away like Benghazi Its called leading from behind!

As Hillary so distinctly summed-up the Obama foreign policy, "What does it matter!"

Our Ambassador and three others killed at Benghazi, "What does it matter!"

23 Embassies are closed for fear of Al Qaeda attacks, "What does it matter!"

Assad crossed the red line by killing 1,000 Syrians with poison gas, "What does it matter!"

The US representative was missing from the UN security Council meet to address Syria´s use of poison gas, "What does it matter!"

The US is viewed by other countries as bombastic and spineless, "What does it matter!"

First my conspiracy theory: it is possible that al-qaeda killed those people and blamed government. And this really doesn´t matter - they kill each other for no reason. The whole shebang in arab world is like that: Algeria, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon...
But back to the US ambassador to the UN. Soon we won´t even know what our government is doing - like in fascist or commie country they will tell us what they want to tell. Actually it is already happening!

As sequestration bore down in February 2013, the threat of furloughs for thousands of government workers was a common refrain from those warning of the dire effects of the across the board budget cuts. Janet Napolitano, then-head of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), told Rep. Bennie Thompson in a letter that sequestration could force her department to idle law enforcement personnel for up to 14 days. As it turned out, DHS did not furlough any personnel, but rather relied on cuts to other areas and shifting funds from other budgets to cover salaries. For instance, Customs and Border Protection

WASHINGTON — There will be no trademark for “Redskins Hog Rinds,” a bad omen for the Washington Redskins in the legal battle over their name. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has rejected a request from a company to sell pork rinds using the word “Redskins” because it deemed the term to be “derogatory slang.” In a letter dated Dec. 29, the agency wrote: “Registration is refused because the applied-for mark REDSKINS HOG RINDS consists of or includes matter which may disparage or bring into contempt or disrepute persons, institutions, beliefs, or national symbols.”

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
