To my cousins across the pond, I wish you a happy Independence Day!
Though the vote was close, the UK has chosen to free itself from the European Union. It chose to reclaim its sovereignty and shake off the bonds of global collectivism in exchange for the freedom of self-determination.
All it took for me to know that Brexit was the right thing was that Barack Obama opposed it. When Obama threatened the UK and demanded, as their friend, that they stay in the EU, I instinctively knew that Brexit was the winning side.
On reflex, Obama always chooses collectivism and globalism over individual liberty, national sovereignty and self-determination. It’s the central reason he despises the country he was elected to lead.
As Andrew McCarthy said of Obama a couple weeks ago in his column The Anti-Anti-Terrorist
He is the first president to see himself more as a citizen of the world who plays a critical role in American affairs than as an American who plays a critical role in international affairs.
Brexit was about national sovereignty, freedom and self-determination. For Barack the Citizen of the World, those are abhorrent concepts.
In September, 2014, after Barack Obama’s laborious speech to the United Nations, I wrote a column called “Parsing Pusillanimous Piffle” (which is now a part of my second volume of columns, RANT 2.0: Even More Politics & Snark in the Age of Obama) In it, I wrote:
It is mindboggling to me that the President of the United States of America can, with the ease of someone throwing junk mail in the trash, toss aside the very Constitution of the nation he was elected to lead in favor of some mythical, fictional, non-existent “international system” and “collective.”
Barack Hussein Obama has never seen himself as an American.
He is part of the “Global Community.”
He lives his life as though John Lennon’s song “Imagine” is no longer just the drug-induced dream of a former rock-n-roll singer, but the actual world in which we live.
For Obama, seeking the best interests of the United States of America is a non-starter.
For Obama, seeking to “observe and enforce international norms” is the secret to living in a land of rainbows and lollipops — where windmills and solar panels power the planet, all disease has been wiped out, and algae fuels our compact cars (which, of course, are constructed using “never crumbling, light as a feather, recycled plastic”).
For Obama, simply making a speech to a room full of foreign diplomats, many of whom fund and support terror organizations, will bring about a New World Order where “war” and “disease” are replaced with “hope.”
Naïve idealism is a dangerous thing.
And the President of what should be the freest, most powerful nation on earth is a foolishly naïve ideologue.
He reminds me of Principal Snyder from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” who, when a giant demon snake attacks the graduation ceremony, stood to one side muttering, “This is simply unacceptable!”
Obama’s 4,261 word speech was a signal to a very dangerous world that the United States of America will not lead through strength, will not seek to preserve and protect its own interests, and will only act if the frothing anti-Semites and tin-pot dictators represented at the UN are kind enough to agree.
“On issue after issue, we cannot rely on a rule-book written for a different century. If we lift our eyes beyond our borders – if we think globally and act cooperatively – we can shape the course of this century as our predecessors shaped the post-World War II age.” [Emphasis Dianny’s]
America led the way in the twentieth century, not because it was thinking globally and acting cooperatively, but because America sought its own interests. It fought to preserve and protect its own sovereignty and freedom.
America stands for the unalienable rights of all man. Life. Liberty. Property.
And by maintaining and preserving the sanctity of those rights within our own nation, we can be a help to the world. Only by putting our nation’s interests first, can we be a help to the world.
It’s like when you’re on an airplane and the flight attendant reminds you to place your own oxygen mask on before assisting your child.
If America doesn’t remain free, if America ceases to be the beacon of Liberty, how on earth can we expect to bring freedom and liberty to others?
Pursuing our own national interests is what allows America to have the strength and will to lift other peoples out of tyranny.
A rising tide lifts all boats. And a strong, prosperous, free United States was able to lift whole regions of the globe out of despotism and into freedom.
This was the “rule-book” Obama mentions.
It is not a “rule-book” that has an expiration date.
And yet, this naïve ideologue believes that this “rule-book” is outdated.
And what, pray tell, is Obama’s fantasy “rule-book” for this new century?
From that crop of virulent, anti-American vermin from the UN?
Let me tell you something about that “rule-book” from another century, Mr. President.
It freed more people, saved more lives and created more prosperity and economic security than the “Star Wars Bar Scene” known as the United Nations.
This idiotic belief that the UK will somehow be weaker simply because it refused to abandon its own sovereignty and self-determination defies not only logic, but history. But this is the belief of not only Barack Obama, but Hillary Clinton. Back in April, the Clinton camp, through a spokesman, made this statement about Brexit:
“Hillary Clinton believes that transatlantic cooperation is essential, and that cooperation is strongest when Europe is united. She has always valued a strong United Kingdom in a strong EU. And she values a strong British voice in the EU.”
Do Obama and Hillary really believe that the only way Europe can be united is by abandoning each nation’s sovereignty and forming the European Union? During World War Two, the UK held off the Nazis and fought to liberate Europe. When the US entered the war, we joined Britain to beat Germany back. We didn’t need to do that by forming some governmental, bureaucratic union with the Brits. We simply formed an alliance. You can still have “transatlantic cooperation” and remain a sovereign nation.
But both Obama and Clinton are global collectivists. They both eschew national sovereignty and self-determination despite the fact that strong sovereign nations always make the best allies.
This is what we are up against in November. Hillary Clinton will be just as much of a globalist as Barack Obama. She already looks with disdain at American sovereignty and national identity. As President, she would have the power to undermine it further.
Our cousins across the pond have shown us that it is possible to stand up for what is right, to beat the odds and to fight to retain our freedom, sovereignty and self-determination.
Upon learning of the Brexit victory, Donald Trump released this statement:
The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples. They have declared their independence from the European Union and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy. A Trump Administration pledges to strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain, deepening our bonds in commerce, culture and mutual defense. The whole world is more peaceful and stable when our two countries – and our two peoples – are united together, as they will be under a Trump Administration.
Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first. They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change that delivers a government of, by and for the people. I hope America is watching, it will soon be time to believe in America again.
And he would be right.
November is our turn to reassert our Independence and our sovereignty. November is our turn to beat back the rising tide of globalism and collectivism that seeks to undermine us as a sovereign nation. November is our turn to stand fast for the United States of America. And a strong, sovereign America is a benefit to the world.
I hope we follow in the footsteps of our British cousins and come down on the side of US Sovereignty and Security. And we can do that by drop-kicking Hillary Clinton — that globalist hag — into the dustbin of history.
