Samantha Power Loves Power

October 20, 2019

Samantha Power is a typical case of how careers in academe and government are made by publishing books on topics favored by the Left University and by earning graduate degrees at “the best” institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, CU-Boulder and USC.

Former Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, whose latest book is reviewed in the Wall Street Journal by Barton Swaim, in addition to alleged abuse of power during her service in the Obama Administration, is an ideologically motivated Leftist with a “Johnny one-note” interest in “global justice” and the pursuit of power.

Her ability to discern common interests with the wealthy and powerful led her to Gregory Carr and the staff of a junior Senator from Illinois, Barack Obama. Powers parlayed that position into work on the Obama Presidential campaign and appointment as U.N. Ambassador.

Power’s career indicates what the “fast track” to success within the Left University system requires:

1)  work on the campaign of a successful candidate for President;

2)  a major prize for publishing in an area of Leftist “Progressive” interest;

3) a patron who is, essentially, uneducated, but extremely wealthy;

4) a Harvard law degree and

5) affiliation with the Kennedy School at Harvard University that attracts endowments for ideological area studies from wealthy benefactors.
