Sen. Lamar Alexander just voted to confirm Obama’s candidate, Samantha Powers, for US Ambassador to the UN.

This is the same Samantha Powers that said the US should give up “some” of our sovereignty to the UN such as the right to bear arms.

87 Senators Vote to Confirm Samantha Powers as new US Ambassador to UN

Samantha Power’s positions on the United Nations suggest she agrees with President Obama in giving the United Nations authority over fundamental rights, such as our right to bear arms, and in allowing US taxpayer dollars to be used at the UN to undermine our ally, Israel.

In 2003, she wrote that “giving up a pinch of sovereignty” to organizations such as the UN is good for the United States and our security.
