Wilmington, DE- Former Vice President Joe Biden’s transition team is reportedly considering Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the post of UN Ambassador.
The news hasn’t been well received by many on the right or left. Former UN Ambassador Susan Rice was surprisingly among those against it. This is interesting, as Rice became prominent arguably due to Clinton’s greatest failure which led to the 2012 Benghazi Consulate Attack costing the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods.

An Insult? As if the role is beneath her? The impressive legacy of Fmr. Ambassador Nikki Haley may well put this role well beyond Fmr. Secretary Clinton’s capabilities. Ambassador Haley stood as a bastion, protecting Americans from the whims of China, Iran, Russia, North Korea and the EU. All of whom would use the UN as a weapon to beat America into submission.
While all of this depends on Vice-President Biden’s legally questionable victory in the 2020 Election, it could be seen as oddly fitting to many on the right. To many conservatives and libertarians: Clinton and the UN share infamy as tools of Globalism and the left’s continued attacks on American sovereignty.
The Washington Post reported
“The thinking behind the move was that it would be a way for Biden to highlight the importance of that position in his administration and that placing her there would raise the prestige of the U.N. itself at a time when global cooperation, and the U.S. role on the world stage, has ebbed.”
Let’s talk about her record.
The idea that Clinton’s record on Foreign affairs could add prestige to anything would seem even more tone-deaf than normal for the Biden team. Biden badly needs to address the distaste of his base which has little love for the 77 year old career politician and even less for the woman who torched the dreams of a Sanders Presidency. Even far-left commentator Jennifer Rubin shared in the criticism of Clinton’s mishandling of Benghazi in 2014,
“[I]f you didn’t know better, you would never have guessed from Clinton’s spiel that she was actually in charge of the State Department at the time. Her nonapology apology not only offered no admission of fault or personal responsibility, it made her sound like the victim,”
That doesn’t sound like someone who could command the respect of her own party, let alone the dictators and despots at the UN.
Why would Biden be Considering Hillary Clinton For UN Ambassador?
In short, take a corrupt and doddering President living out his swan song. Add a Vice President by virtue of her gender and racial background with no foreign policy experience. Toss in an equally corrupt, ineffective former Secretary of State who rode her former President-husband’s coattails to ignominity. The result is the weakest United States since Joseph “the Appeaser” Kennedy Sr. tried to convince Churchill to appease Germany.
The message a Biden Presidency would send to the United Nations is clear.
The days of The American Superpower are over. And the days of subservience to a Global Government are soon to begin.
