Obama to Chair UN Security Council

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.

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.

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.

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."

“Maybe he is the Antichrist...”

The UN wants a new global currency. Is this a sign of the Antichrist?

By Damian Thompson Religion Last updated: September 8th, 2009

If I was a fundamentalist Christian (which I’m not) I’d 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 it’s time to take a fresh look at the last few pages of the Bible?

The Antichrist will not need a teleprompter.

Since his past is hidden and he arose to power out of nowhere, I can't exactly rule that out. IMO, the AC is alive now and walking the earth somewhere, so why not him? He seems to have the world mesmerized for having never accomplished anything.

Not only does he apparently not have a cabinet or secretaries to speak on policy, he doesn’t have a UN ambassador either.

He’s NUTS.
