A Patriot’s Nightmare?

posted at 2:55 pm on April 6, 2011 by Jazz Shaw

James Joyner takes an in-depth look at the re-emergence to prominence of Samantha Power, currently a senior adviser to President Obama, member of the National Security Council and, according to some sources, potentially in line for a cabinet position. (It is a “re-emergence” since, as many of you will recall, she was rather unceremoniously dumped from the Obama campaign team in 2008 after calling Hillary Clinton “a monster.”)

Joyner’s analysis comes in response to an NRO piece by Stanly Kurtz, who calls Power as a “patriot’s nightmare,” describing her “radical” history as a multi-nationalist in the mold of Noam Chomski. James writes:

Is Powers unpatriotic, let alone a “patriot’s nightmare”? I’ve met her only briefly and haven’t read enough of her work to peer into her heart. But I’ve certainly seen no evidence that she doesn’t love her adopted country (she was born in Ireland). She could, after all, live anywhere she wanted and has chosen to be in the United States, where she’s raising a son with husband Cass Sunstein.

Her international relations worldview, in a nutshell, is that states are not entitled to have their sovereignty respected when they’re not living up to minimal human rights standards promulgated by the United States and a handful of other developed nations. The notion that the United Nations and its “leftist bureaucrats” could impose its will on the United States is absurd on a number of levels. Not only is it chiefly American values that it’s seeking to promote but it’s American money and military capability that allows it to function. As President Dave Chappelle aptly noted some years back, the UN lacks an army.

Unlike James, I’ve never met Ms. Power, so I can’t speak to her bona fides as a radical. What I do know, however, is that she is one of the leading proponents in the administration of the Responsibility to Protect doctrine. (A deeply flawed theory which we have discussed here before.) And while I can’t say for sure whether she is a “patriot’s nightmare,” speaking from the cheap seats she is most certainly a nightmare to an isolationist such as yours truly.

Power is a prime specimen of that formerly rare species, the liberal hawk. Unlike neocons, who seek to project American power – alone if need be – to spread democracy around the globe, Power and her ilk push for American intervention abroad through the auspices of international agencies when other governments create humanitarian disasters. As Joyner correctly points out, she embraces a theory which says that the sovereignty of other nations is conditional and subject to veto by the US and a handful of other countries if they fail to live up to our standards.

But the outcome is the same either way. Whether you staff your administration with neocons or liberal hawks like Power, the end result is an increasing number of foreign wars if they have their way. There seems to be a mounting list of reasons why both conservatives and libertarian leaning liberals should oppose the expansion of her power and influence in the Obama administration.

Samantha’s not even getting good notices over in some quarters of the Huffington Post.

She’s not exactly the ideal choice for an Israeli patriot, let alone an American one. Though given her remarks on Hillary and the Clintons’ deftness in the realm of payback, any possible mis-steps by Power if she gets the new job are likely to be outed quickly via press people with connections to higher-ups in the State Department.

I seem to remember an awful lot of screaming about how we shouldn’t be in Iraq and had no business there when it was that “misunderestimated” guy in the Oval Office. Now we get somebody who thinks we can just invade any country that fails to live up to our standards?

I’m guessing that if the War in Iraq were led by this Samantha Power person, the “peace protesters” wouldn’t have given a damn what our military was doing over there.

Nevertheless, America has been evangelizing for freedom at least since the closing of the frontier, and arguably since the founding, so nobody should be under any illusion that Power’s philosophy is an alien construct. If you start by positing the existence of universal self-evident inalienable rights and acquire what you suppose is the power to enforce or protect them… well, draw your own conclusions.

A member of our own regime already noted that the AZ law, fighting to protect our borders, our sovereignty, was a violation of human rights ‘standards’….to the CHINESE. When do the enemies within and the UN turn those standards against US and rule to no longer respect OUR sovereignty? Mrs. Cass Sunstein is a radical, a liberal, but with that type in the White House, in our ruling class, she fits RIGHT in.
Now, Jazz…How do I request a new laptop? That picture of Mrs. Cass Sunstein broke my computer. What is it with these liberal women…talk about getting hit with the ugly stick…she got slammed by the ugly FOREST.

GOP lawyer drafts Obama impeachment

A prominent libertarian constitutional lawyer and civil libertarian has drafted an article of impeachment against President Obama over his attack on Libya, throwing down a legal gauntlet that could be picked up by some Congressional Republicans

Bruce Fein, a former Reagan administration official in the Department of Justice and chairman of American Freedom Agenda writes in his 15-page argument of Obama’s course that “Barack Hussein Obama has mocked the rule of law, endangered the very existence of the Republic and the liberties of the people, and perpetrated an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.”

ajacksonian on April 6, 2011 at 6:33 PM

There are worlds of differences between isolationism, pacifism, and anti-interventionism, and interventionists who subdivide into neoconservatives and those who forfeit national sovereignty in favor of globalism aka One World Order.

Isolationists are protectionists who advocate tariffs, effecting aggressive economic warfare with other nations.

Pacifists refuse to fight under any circumstance on moral/spiritual grounds.

Anti-interventionists are in line with the parting advice given by the Father of our Country Pres. George Washington, and by the Commander of the Allied Forces during WWII, President “Ike” Eisenhower. Calling either of those great American Generals “COWARDS” proves that the name-caller @ 6:19 hasn’t a clue between right and wrong, let alone what ramifications mean.

maverick muse on April 6, 2011 at 6:36 PM

btw, neoconservative-statists get to globalism in the New World Order but with more nuance, taking longer to admit what Constitutional elements are discarded as they legislate and executive order authoritarianism into Federal position to abuse all powers. Rather, the Democrat-Socialists skip any reference to patriotism outright, and aren’t denying the supposed “brilliance” of Marxism.

A small point, but technically she is not a “member” of the NSC. Members of the NSC are defined by statute and “senior advisors” to the President didn’t make the cut. She’s on the staff of the NSC.
