Jeffrey LewisBolton to be UN Ambassador

The President intends to nominate self-described “Americanist” John Bolton to be its Ambassador to the UN.

Bolton is an outright xenophobe, as evidenced by this little speech he gave at a conference entitled, Trends in Global Governance: Do They Threaten American Sovereignty?:

My thesis, as a convinced Americanist, is that these happy days are over. Like it or not, the Globalists have seized more readily the opportunities provided by the end of the Cold War to advance their agenda, building on an iceberg-like mass produced by years of writing, conference-going, resolution-passing and networking.

In substantive field after field—human rights, labor, health, the environment, political-military affairs, and international organizations—the Globalists have been advancing while the Americanists have slept. Recent clashes in and around the United States Senate indicate that the Americanist party has awakened, and that the harm and costs to the United States of belittling our popular sovereignty and constitutionalism, and restricting both our domestic and our international policy flexibility and power are finally receiving attention.

Nonetheless, Americanists find themselves surrounded by small armies of Globalists, each tightly clutching a favorite new treaty or multilateralist proposal.

I can hear the flutter of black helicopters in the background.

    Did you not mean to say that you can hear the jet engines of the contracted Gulf Streams with clearly marked US Tail numbers—especially since black helicopters are so 80s?
