Not kidding: Obama has new 'atrocities czar'

President Obama’s National Security Adviser Samantha Power will head the new White House Atrocities Prevention Board, which is tasked with formulating a response to war crimes, crimes against humanity and mass atrocities.

Power helped to found a global military doctrine called Responsibility to Protect that was also devised by several controversial characters, including Palestinian legislator Hanan Ashrawi, a staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late Palestinian Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat.

Power once suggested investing “literally billions of dollars” in a “mammoth protection force” to intercede in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Notorious left-wing radical Tom Hayden recently wrote Power sees war as an “instrument for achieving her liberal, even radical, values.”

[snip] Power was reportedly heavily influential in convincing Obama to launch NATO airstrikes in Libya last year...

[snip] Also writing at Rag Blog is Marxist activist Carl Davidson, a founder of the socialist New Party. WND previously reported evidence Obama was a New Party member.

[snip] Soros’ Open Society Institute is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect.

[snip] One Rag Blog contributor is Mark Rudd, a founder of the Weather Underground terror group alongside Obama associate William Ayers. The Weathermen, co-founded by Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, sought the overthrow of the U.S. government. .

Maybe they can investigate the atrocities committed by Obama’s alphabet agencies against the people.

Scariest part about this?

Obama is absolutely acting like he's not facing the voters in November.

Probably because he's not.

How nice of them to create a Czar to look out for us when our Military starts dropping bombs on us.

"Has Major Strasser been shot?"
"Ummmmmmm. No ..."
"Well, he could be. And that would be an atrocity. Round up the usual suspects, just to be on the safe side."

She can start with resolving the atrocity of abortion in America.

50 million infants lost.

I sure hope that the 2013 Congress has the gonads to tell the Executive Branch that there ain’t no more unvetted czars who have any rule making capacity, and are not allowed to influence legislation, or EO’s. And no funding!!!

If the “atrocity czar” doesn’t as their first act find that nobama him self is an atrocity, he isn’t doing his job.

And in that case, one guess on who replaces him on the ticket.

Power is a foreigner, an Irishwoman, with little respect for America’s history and no regard or consideration for American interests or America’s place in the world. Rather like our president.

That thought has occurred to me more than once in the last few weeks. The man is just doing too many things he has to know the majority will see as extremely radical and/or extremely tyrannical. This sort of very publicly doubling down on unpopular policies is not the usual behavior of a politician preparing to face the People at the polls.

You mean like Obama staffers allegedly throwing a hooker out of an SUV?

That sort of atrocities?

Bit of hypocrisy once once again?

Just 193 days left until the election people. Start to focus please...

Next up: The White House Natural Disasters Prevention Board. Its work will be every bit as valuable as the Atrocities Prevention Board.

“........tasked with formulating a response to war crimes, crimes against humanity and mass atrocities.”

Guess she could hit the ground running by starting with Obama himself.

Why are the “czar’s” even being funded? Cut them off at the check-book. We are soooooo screwed once again and nobody does anything about it.

Obama has created his own private government and nothing is being done to stop it.

I think Atrocity Czar should start with the modern art in the Lincoln Gallery of the Smithsonian. Lots of atrocities in there. And there is probably plenty more work for him in the National Endowment for the Arts. Some of the stuff they inflict on the art world are atrocities - and done with taxpayer funds to boot!
