Obama to Chair UN Security Council
Role could have prez crossing paths with Gaddafi Updated 6:45 AM CDT, Wed, Sep 9, 2009
Barack Obama is set to become the first-ever U.S. president to chair the United Nations' 15-member Security Council when it meets later this month.
The council, which next meets Sept. 24, deals with a host of global challenges, including nuclear non-proliferation and nuclear disarmament. The Obama administration hopes to use the month-long appointment to emphasise a departure from the Bush administration's strategy of pursuing its own unilateral policies through the council.
Obama will join other heads of government in New York during the week of the nuclear summit for the opening of the 64th session of the UN General Assembly. Climate change and the Middle East peace process will be on the agenda for the wider body. Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, under fire for wining the freedom of a terrorist convicted of killing 270 in the Lockerbie bombing, is due to be on hand and could turn the session into a spectacle.
The State Department has not ruled out the possibility that Obama and Gaddafi would cross paths. They are both due to address the General Assembly on the same day, and the Libyan leader, whose country is a temporary member of the Security Council, is entitled to attend the nuclear summit session that Mr Obama will chair.
Will he tax the chair first?
Nope, just us.
So many “historic” firsts with this president it’s hard to keep track of.
Is there ANYTHING BO could possibly propose to the UN that they would not approve?
If the question is
“which swaggering mini-despot doesn’t need a teleprompter to stitch together 3 intelligible sentences to the public?”
I’ll take Qadaffi for $100
The UN does not have our best interests at heart.
Obama will feel right at home.
I'm King of the World
It is not enough for me
To be President.
US to sign UN gay rights declaration
WASHINGTON The Obama administration will endorse a U.N. declaration calling for the worldwide decriminalization of homosexuality that then-President George W. Bush had refused to sign, The Associated Press has learned.
Maybe he is the Antichrist...
obama wants it all, he wants the world.
Barack Obama sponsored S. 2433 Global Povery Act of 2007, "which, if implemented, would mandate 0.7% of US GNP be turned over to the United Nations, for use as the United Nations sees fit."
When are we going to start using the “T” word?
“Maybe he is the Antichrist...”
The UN wants a new global currency. Is this a sign of the Antichrist?

If I was a fundamentalist Christian (which Im not) Id be asking myself: is it just me, or are we living in a time of unusual prophetic fulfilment?
1. The US has elected a President before whom all nations bow down (or at least they do according to his grovelling sycophants in the American media and the BBC). A man of great oratorial skills yet possessing a smoothly anonymous personality
2. Technology now allows the state to monitor every inch of our neighbourhoods AND our bodies, without us even being aware of the fact
3. The United Nations wants a new global currency to replace the dollar, as the Telegraph reports today.
This, surely, is the clincher. I mean, how many Signs of the Times do you need before you decide its time to take a fresh look at the last few pages of the Bible?
The Antichrist will not need a teleprompter.
Not only does he apparently not have a cabinet or secretaries to speak on policy, he doesn’t have a UN ambassador either.
He was barely a senator before he ran for president. I’ve thought from the beginning that the White House is just another calling card for 0’s next job - New World Order community organizer.
“She wants to be Pope.” “Go back to your hovel” the flounder said.
This is a conflict of interest.
If Bam takes the UN position he needs to resign as POTUS.
And so it begins...
“This is a conflict of interest.
If Bam takes the UN position he needs to resign as POTUS.”
Wow perfect choice with all his vast military and foreign policy experience....

If I’ve read it right, looks like he even set up the agenda for the meeting. How is the chair selected? I can’t seem to find that info.
It was my impression that none of the permanent members of the security council could have someone from their country chair the Security concil. Did the rules change for Obama?
While Obama chairing the UN Security Council might stoke his monumental ego, it will not play well at home were the UN is a best suspect and at worst reviled. Doesn’t Obama have enough on his plate with the US economy in the crapper that he can now take over duties at the UN too? I would think that this move would even cause many Democrats to flinch as it gives Republicans another hot button campaign issue.
This will please the small percentage of the American public who still believe the U.N does something meaningful.
If the chief clown accepts the UN chair position, he will be in direct violation of Article 9 of the US Constitution.
I assume you refer to Clause 8 of Article 9?
Clause 8: No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.
Why is this not bigger news????—or even being discussed on Rush, etc.?? I can’t send around as my lunch hour is ending & I have to leave computer, but I wish someone would share this with Rush, Beck & Hannity!
I did not see a thread—just a profile....
Yep, that would be the one.
This is what I am wondering. It doesn’t even seem like big news here. It’s freaking me out.
Well I was posting about Health care back in April and no one cared (seriously)
—maybe (hopefully) we are just early to the party?
This is huge news—bigger than Cass Sunstein and bigger than health care or obamba’s speech.
Very little coverage!!! Is it even legal????
I don’t know if it’s legal. Presumably. However, would that matter? No one seems to be covering it. I’m wondering if it’ll be in Beck’s program because this news seems to dwarf anything related to Czars or healthcare by a long shot.
Hopefully he will cover it tomorrow, maybe rush tomorrow. This just really came in under the wire. Amazing how these things break late at nite—VOA had it on at 11 p.m. Sort of like the Van Jones thing—they break it at midnite on Sat?
I agree, this is huge, but then I did read the Left Behind Series....
Interestingly, Richardson might have had a “natural born citizen” issue, too, had he succeeded in his quest for the presidency:
Bill Richardson was born in Pasadena, California. His father, William Blaine Richardson Jr. (died in 1972), was an American Citibank executive who grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and lived and worked in Mexico City. His mother, María Luisa López-Collada Márquez is the Mexican daughter of a Spanish father from Villaviciosa, Asturias, Spain and a Mexican mother and was his father’s secretary. Richardson’s father was born in Nicaragua. Just before Richardson was born, his father sent his mother to California to give birth because, as Richardson explained, “My father had a complex about not having been born in the United States.” Richardson, a U.S. citizen by birthright, was raised during his childhood in Mexico City. At age 13, Richardson’s parents sent him to Massachusetts to attend a preparatory school, Middlesex School in Concord, Massachusetts, where he played baseball as a pitcher.
I used to think that too, but until the antichrist is indwelt by satan, he might not be much more than a mere mortal, as is anyone else. He will probably not need a teleprompter after satan possesses him. Before? Not so sure. The antichrist is not described as supernatural until the 2nd half of his reign. The first half, he's just a human being who seduces the masses with sugary words and ideas. JMO.
Maybe he’s “chairing” it as a Kenyan.
Yeah, I and my wife read them too.
Plus a goof up here or there can only help to humanize the guy, it wouldn’t do to be too good at what he’s doing.
Perhaps we are the enlightenned few—just really scary to me that conservatives and libertarians are not seeing the red flags here. Think what he can do to Israel?
In audio released this week, we heard Van Jones all but calling for the non-existence of Israel, and let’s face it, BO and the Missus are on the same page with VJ in everything, they just have been much more careful. My wife is a Messianic Jew and keeps up with all things Israel, so we shall see.
Missed the audio ov Jones, but not surprised. I am on the Middle East Terrorism ping list, which covers Israel and the area—will be interesting to watch this unfold, but I hope more get a clue!
Anymore news on this. Hate to have this important story get lost in the shuffle—I think it is huge—far more important than Pres. Speech!
