In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Obama Uses UN Speech for U.S. Politics

For President Obama, it’s all about his agenda, which comes first, not the country. And so he feels free to practice politics, and condemn the policies of his potential successor, in a forum where he is representing the United States before the world.

“Today, a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself,” Obama said Tuesday during his remarks at the UN General Assembly.

Obama referenced Donald Trump’s wall after offering up his own simplistic thinking about us poor, dumb Americans, suggesting the views of Trump and his supporters are animated by racism – what he calls “the politics of ethnicity or tribe or sect.”

As these real problems have been neglected, alternative visions of the world have pressed forward, both in the wealthiest countries and in the poorest. Religious fundamentalism, the politics of ethnicity or tribe or sect, aggressive nationalism, a crude populism, sometimes from the far left but more often from the far right, which seeks to restore what they believe was a better, simpler age free of outside contamination. We cannot dismiss these visions. They are powerful. They reflect dissatisfaction among too many of our citizens . . . Today, a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself. So the answer cannot be a simple rejection of global integration. Instead, we must work together to make sure the benefits of such integration are broadly shared.

Americans are not, as the president puts it, looking for “a better, simpler age free of outside contamination.” They are looking for reasonable limits on immigration and an end to illegal entry, so that our culture is preserved and not changed too rapidly.

America has always had immigration, but has also always acted to limit it. Obama asserts that the immigration we have today, reaching unprecedented levels and continuing without the prospect of a time out, are “what makes us Americans.” No, it’s not.

To say something like this is to be accused by Obama of racism. And that is why Trump, who is not afraid of such attacks, is so close to the White House.

  1. Obummer the clueless black man. His thought process flawed by the racism he sees. Even though its not there. Rev Wright and the other white haters have given him a false world view.
    He will be remembers as an idiot. A basically flawed individual that was the wrong choice for this country.
    We were scammed by the DNC and the mass media.

  2. “…The immigration we have today…is what makes us Americans..”???

    Wrong! It makes YOU a lawless, racist, America-hating dictator who pays no heed to the Constitution or the limited powers of the Executive Office.

    Obama’s immigration policy? America is your gravy train! It matters not if you are a terrorist, a criminal, a felon, a rapist, a dead-beat, or just plain trash – we welcome you! Just be sure to register Democrat!

  3. I was watching a movie on my Roku last night called “The Immigrant”. The setting was 1921 and Ellis Island/NYC. Some issues stood out. There were strict rules for immigrants, i.e. good health, no record of criminal behavior, a sponsor, an address to indicate someone was expecting you and you weren’t going to end up on the street. Even your moral behavior on the ship was reported to immigration officials.

    However, the movie brought out a darker side. Immigration officials could be bribed, you might get away with lying to officials and then admitted into the country, you might also end up working for some pimp or ring of thieves as the only readily available means of initial survival.

    At any rate, it was a good movie, reminding us that there used to be very strict rules (sometimes violated) for new immigrants. There was no unvetted, wildly out of control mass flow of immigrants into this country.

    1. I find it humorous.
      For 8 years his dictatorial lecturing has resulted in a populace that is sick of hearing his voice and is yearning for a leader.
      It has enlightened many who were once glued to the MSM to stand back and take another look at whom they willfully run interference for.

      Now we have Hillary Clinton, non-indicted crook and liar running for the highest office in the land, and once again the MSM is running cover for her.

      Obama is desperate for his legacy to continue.

      The policies that have economically taken this Country to it’s knees.
      If Hillary wins, the economy will continue to suffer.

      If Trump wins and starts putting this Country back together again, we will again be inundated by the incessant image of Obama lecturing the American People.

      God Bless the technology that allows us to turn him off.

      1. Except it really isn’t humorous. Imagine him getting up and angrily castigating blacks to not let him down and not destroy his legacy by voting for someone other than Huckstery.
        He looked so ugly and evil while he was doing it. Sometimes I wonder if he is the Antichrist.
        I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. After all, its always been all about him.

  4. yeah but guess what you guys: Bret Baier reports that Obama’s speech was not interrupted once by applause.

    now think about that:

    the final speech of Mr. Globalism, who used to be so popular with the antisemitic bureacrats of the UN, and they didn’t clap once? not even when he said Israelis shouldn’t be occupying Palestinian land? that’s hard to believe. but apparently it happened.

    at long last, the world seems to be seeing Obama as he really is.

  5. How can Obama call himself an American when he doesn’t even believe in the guarantees of the Constitution?
    How can this utter fool get up in front of the world and say that Americans have to give up their freedoms and act with “constraint” in order to make the world a safer place?
    He has been been acting with “constraint” for the last 8 years and we continue to be attacked and mocked around the world and at home.
    I cannot imagine a more clueless and out of touch POTUS than this fool.
    If Hillary Clinton is elected we will have more of the same of this crap.

  6. deplorably irredemable gracepc

    Not one Administration official will meet with the Senate Judiciary Cmte, as required by law, to establish the 2017 Refugee quota. Mr. Sessions is outraged by this flaunting of the law. And if Mr. Sessions is outraged you can bet that Mr, Trump has the data to nail Obama’s skinny a*s to the wall — tee hee, which wall?

    Anyway, …

  7. Its obvious he just likes to hear himself talk…it’s never been more apparent…he cares nothing about our country or its legacy of hope and freedom.

    1. The only “legacy” that matters to Barry is his own. He is such a narcissist he can’t even see how horrific it is. His only true legacy is that he was the first “black” President, and if there is an vestige of sense left in the world, he will be the last.

  8. I mute the TV and radio when Obama, Josh Earnest, or Loretta Lynch begin to speak. They make me ill to listen to them. Besides, you already know what they are going to say…and it will not be uplifting or supportive of anything.
