Update November 19th: Human rights activist Aung San Suu Kyi does not look very happy as Obama butchers the pronunciation of her name here, and gives her a hug here. Was the hug before or after the reprimand on the Rohingya? I don’t think all this hugging is common in Asia, did anyone tell Obama?
Update November 18th: Power is being named as possible UN Ambassador if fellow “vulcan” Rice is nominated for the State Department, here. But, here is another scenario, if Susan Rice is shot down in the next few weeks over Benghazi, would Obama put Power up for the State Department. We should all be very afraid.
Oh, no! She and Obama have brought the Muslim Brotherhood to power in North Africa and now they are going on to mess up Southeast Asia! And, they are wasting no time….
Samantha Power, the White House “humanitarian vulcan” (no rinkey-ding do-gooder stuff!), who was supposed to reform the Refugee Resettlement Program when Obama first took office in 2009 has been hiding out lately (while creating more refugees!). I’ve been following her career— as one of the three proponents of the “responsibility to protect” (others include Hillary and Susan Rice). She was responsible for our Libyan adventure where we basically ousted a dictator, but are now letting Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood run rampant.
During the recent cover-up on the Benghazi terror attack she was mysteriously out of the picture. I’m figuring Obama wanted to keep her untainted in the scandal so she will be available for some higher position in his next Administration.
But, now we see she is out and about and talking about Obama’s trip to Burma (Myanmar) where I expect he will scold the government for being so mean to the Rohingya Muslims. He will probably also put pressure on Aung San Suu Kyi who has so far refused to jump into the controversy and take the Rohingya side. As we reported here—after huge protests by monks, the Myanmar government had the audacity to disallow the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to set up shop in the country. I don’t know for sure, but that probably makes Burma the only country in the world to tell the OIC to shove it. Obama and Power were probably furious!
***Update November 16th: Aung San Suu Kyi continues to tick-off the “human rights” cabal for not speaking up in defense of the Muslims. Here is one of many stories on the subject.***
If you are a new reader, you might be asking why we are talking about Burma here at RRW. BECAUSE we are bringing Rohingya “refugees” to the US and federal contractors like the US Conference of Catholic Bishops want more. Heck some Rohingya probably voted for Obama in New Hampshire last week! So, please take time to learn about the on-going battle between the Buddhists and the Muslims in Burma.
Ms. Power (and Obama) helped destabilize North Africa (with the theory that we can go to war and destabilize governments to “help” people) and now, again under the guise of protecting “human rights”, she likely has her sights set on destabilizing the (wobbly) Burmese government as well. For all of you who thought Obama would keep us out of foreign engagements/entanglements, or LOL! out of “democracy building” (wasn’t that a Bush thing?), you can forget about it!
Obama going to Burma (heaven help the Buddhists!)
Here is the news account that popped up today from Reuters:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – International human rights activists met senior White House officials on Tuesday to press President Barack Obama to take a tough line with leaders in Myanmar and Cambodia during his forthcoming Southeast Asia tour.
The talks, which included Samantha Power, a top Obama adviser and outspoken expert on genocide, touched on what the president will say during his landmark visit to Myanmar to prod the quasi-civilian government to do more to curb sectarian violence, activists said. [The violence began this time when Rohingya men gang-raped a Buddhist girl, but they don’t ever tell you that—ed]
The visit, part of a November 17-20 swing through Southeast Asia, would be the first U.S. presidential trip to Myanmar, also known as Burma. Obama is going ahead with the visit despite rights groups’ criticism it is premature because reforms have yet to be consolidated after decades of military rule.
A top official with a leading rights organization provided details of the meeting on condition of anonymity. Roughly half a dozen activists took part in the talks at the White House.
They left the meeting satisfied that Obama intends to push hard on human rights and political and economic reform in closed-door talks with reformist President Thein Sein and in his public remarks, including a speech.
Here is what they are really aiming for—helping build the image around the world of victimized Muslims (again)!
But a Reuters investigation into a wave of sectarian assaults on minority Muslims in western Myanmar painted a troubling picture: the attacks were organized, central-government military sources told Reuters. They were led by nationalists in Myanmar’s Rakhine state tied to a powerful political party there, incited by Buddhist monks, and, some witnesses said, abetted at times by local security forces.
The “hawk” has her own White House blog:
Power, considered a “humanitarian hawk” within the administration, wrote a blog on the White House website last week signaling that Obama would use the Myanmar trip to pressure the government to do more on human rights.
So what does she say in her blog post?
Yesterday’s announcement that President Obama will become the first U.S. President to visit Burma marks an historic step in the United States’ engagement with Burma. In the past year, since President Obama first noted “flickers of progress” in Burma – and since Secretary Clinton became the most senior U.S. official to visit since 1955 – we have seen continued progress on the road to democracy.
After listing a litany of ‘improvements,’ she launches into what they are really pushing with this trip—-the meme that the poor victimized Rohingya need saving from the evil Buddhists. Her wording below leaves readers believing that the death and homelessness is all on the Muslim side—she is a liar!
We are clear-eyed about the challenges that Burma faces. The peril faced by the stateless Rohingya population in Rakhine State is particularly urgent, and we have joined the international community in expressing deep concern about recent violence that has left hundreds dead, displaced over 110,000, and destroyed thousands of homes.
The Arab Spring was a disaster for freedom of religion and human liberty, but you wouldn’t know it from reading the “hawk.” They’ve exhausted and destablized Africa and are now headed to Southeast Asia to bring them “democracy” Obama-style whether they like it or not!
In May 2011, as the Arab Spring took hold, the President noted that America’s interests are served when ordinary people are empowered to chart their own political and economic futures. And to governments, he made a promise: if you take the risks that reform entails, you will have the full support of the United States.
President Thein Sein should tell Obama, thanks but no thanks! And, besides, we can not guarantee your safety here.
Remember, you read it here first—-Obama sells out Burma to the Islamists/Muslim Brotherhood! And, as chaos ensues we bring more Muslim refugees to the US from Burma to save them from mean monks.
For everything you need to know on the Rohingya, we have 125 previous posts on the subject in our special category, Rohingya Reports. See one post in particular from 2009 about Rohingya being listed as linked to Islamic terrorist groups in Southeast Asia—a list subsequently removed from the State Department’s website.
