I know where I’ll be on Tuesday! John Bolton is a-talkin’ on ‘Protecting National Sovereignty in the Age of Obama.’ The bill of indictment:

The Obama Administration appears to be more interested in encouraging this trend than in protecting our sovereignty. Despite the Climategate Scandal, the United Nations and the Obama Administration continue to seek a climate change agreement that would dramatically affect the lives of all Americans. Despite ample evidence of the failure of UN arms control efforts, the Obama Administration continues to seek out and negotiate treaties that rely on UN verification and oversight. Despite the fact that President Clinton warned against ratifying the Rome Statute, the Obama Administration remains dedicated to increasing U.S. cooperation with the International Criminal Court created by the Statute.

You might call this “multilateralism,” but apparently sovereignty is apportioned into components — call them Sovs — and if someone has one, it means you don’t.
