Obama is Right: The Fate of the World Is at Stake in 2016!

One does not often find Barack Obama right in his statements, but we have to agree with him about the election.

When is Obama right? When he points out the consequences of this election.

According to Business Insider,

“We don’t win this election, potentially, if we don’t win North Carolina,” he said during a campaign rally for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “I hate to put a little pressure on you, but the fate of the republic rests on your shoulders. The fate of the world is teetering.”

In his speech to voters in the Tar Heel State, the president emphasized how crucial North Carolina’s 15 electoral votes are to Clinton’s path to capturing the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House.

Obama repeatedly laid into Trump, one sentence after another, saying that he had “no respect for working people,” mocking his claim that he has a “good brain,” and lambasting the Republican presidential nominee’s plan to bar all Muslims from entering the US.

Here’s video. Again, see how the President is correct to say the choice could not be clearer:

Forget about the Republic and focus on what President Obama is saying about “the fate of the world.” Is Obama right?

Whether we get involved in a war with Russia is probably the most important political issue on the planet. Right now, the Obama-Clinton combine is pushing towards that war over Syria in defense of terrorists. They are so bent on this path that they will mock anyone who objects to it as “Putin’s puppet.”

Wow, what an intellectual response! That really convinces us that you know what you’re doing.

Thus, there is good reason to think that the fate of the world is at stake in this election.

Also, while this election has been about U.S. immigration policy what’s at stake is immigration in the Western World. Not only have our policies destabilized the Middle East and worsened Europe’s refugee crisis, but we actively pressure countries to make insane policies regarding immigration. Our ambassador to Hungary presumed to lecture their elected legislators to let in “refugees.” We are helping governments resist pressure from their own people to protect them from crime and terrorism.

Is Obama right? Will this election affect the world? Absolutely?

With Brexit, the question of the value and continued existence of the European Union has become an urgent matter. Our government under its present leadership has not been silent to allow the nations and peoples to decide their own fates. Barack Obama openly opposes any national independence movement, including Brexit. Donald Trump has demonstrated consistency. In addition to advancing an “America First” platform, he has respected other nations who expect their governments to care about their interests.

In other words, a vote against globalism at home is a blow to globalism all over the world.

That’s why the establishment is panicking.

As Patrick Buchanan wrote,

What explains the hysteria of the establishment?

In a word, fear.

The establishment is horrified at the Donald’s defiance because, deep within its soul, it fears that the people for whom Trump speaks no longer accept its political legitimacy or moral authority.

It may rule and run the country, and may rig the system through mass immigration and a mammoth welfare state so that Middle America is never again able to elect one of its own. But that establishment, disconnected from the people it rules, senses, rightly, that it is unloved and even detested.

This revolution isn’t restricted to the U.S. Obama is right. The whole world is hanging in the balance.
