Obstinate Obama Lectures Abroad

He took one final apology tour around the world.

Barack Obama proved, again, he is truly insufferable. Saturday, at his final press conference on his international farewell apology tour from Lima, Peru, Obama needed supplemental oxygen as his rhetoric soared into the stratosphere of the arrogant and ignorant.

Pontificating about his own administration’s record and advice he’d offer to the incoming Donald Trump administration, Obama pointed out the times when America has “fallen short of our ideals of democracy.” Taking on the tone of a tenured socialist university professor spewing indoctrination, Obama noted that the U.S. had been an “indispensable nation in our world order” to help the disadvantaged but had failed to live up to global norms and hasn’t “observed the values in our own country and have fallen short of our ideals.”

No international trip of Obama’s is complete without a USA beat down to make other nations feel adequate in their socialism and economic failures. In Lima on Saturday, the 44th president cited the contributions of America to this world order: “The notion of democracy. And rule of law. And a free press. And independent judiciary. And open markets. And a social welfare state to moderate some of the sharp edges of capitalism. And, you know, lifting issues of human rights and investing in public health and development not just in our own borders but elsewhere in the world. And working with multilateral institutions, like the United Nations, making sure we’re upholding international norms and rules. That’s what has made the modern world.”

Stop laughing. This narcissistic community organizer truly believes his own speeches.

All who are intellectually honest know that Obama’s policies and those of his failed Democratic National Committee view democracy only through the lens of mob-rule and the “majority.” At every opportunity, they work to undermine the democratic republic America was founded to be.

We know that his laughable claim regarding the “rule of law” is marked by open borders, no legal immigration enforcement, sanctuary cities, a politicized and weaponized Department of Justice, a declaration that law enforcement is society’s problem and an FBI that seems fearful to address public corruption.

Then, Obama’s Audacity of Hope finishes strong as the Audacity of Hype in citing open markets as a facet of America he has supported. This man implemented 81,640 pages of regulations in 2016 alone, surpassing his own record set in 2010 by 235 pages. Per the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Obama administration is the only one to exceed 80,000 Federal Registry pages of regulations annually — a feat he accomplished on four occasions. This past Thursday alone, Obama inserted 527 pages of new regulations into the Federal Register. And he wants to boast of the open market?

Regulations are to free markets as the KFC’s Colonel is to chickens.

Obama’s farewell tour also featured his loyal “progressive” gal-pal, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose “joint defense” of America’s strong leadership in — cough, cough — global security also served as what The Washington Post called a “message to President-elect Donald Trump” not to cozy up to Russia in efforts to defeat radical Islamic terror.

The lecturing Obama offered, “My hope is he does not simply take a realpolitik approach and suggest if we just cut some deals with Russia, even if it hurts people or violates international norms or leaves smaller countries vulnerable or creates long-term problems in countries like Syria, that we just do what is convenient at the time.”

Stop laughing! Yes, this is the same Obama who watched Russia roll into Crimea under the laughable premise of “annexation” and invade Ukraine at the cost of tens of thousands dead and injured in the conflict. This is the same president whose philosophy of self-determination (read: absence) in a conflict such as Syria left the void for Russia to enter the sectarian war by partnering with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime to ensure greater casualties with armed assaults.

Yeah, Obama … you showed ‘em!

Merkel issued her own declaration that will, most likely, be flatly ignored. At Obama’s side, Merkel noted the importance of the U.S. to Germany’s strategic future as long as cooperation is based on “a common platform of democracy, freedom, advocacy for human rights all over the world and championing the open and liberal world order.”

OK. Now we’re laughing. Not only did the working class of the United Kingdom say with an explanation point, “We want our sovereignty as a nation back!” regarding the Brexit vote and the rejection of this we-are-the-world-order mindset, but Americans representing workers and patriots of the U.S. rejected every bit of this babble regarding globalism.

Of the 3,141 counties of the United States, Trump-Pence won in 3,084 of those. Indeed, some of these rural counties are no match for Los Angeles or New York City in population, which is why our Founding Fathers foresaw the need for representation in this democratic republic that would continue to grow in population.

Americans voted for Rule of Law that Obama, Hillary Clinton and all Democrats have abandoned and made purely a mockery. Americans voted for a free press, not this gaggle of propaganda prostitutes we call “presstitutes,” who have betrayed the trust of Americans for true news and facts. Americans voted for free markets and fair markets, as the priority is clearly the employment of Americans, not heavy-handed, job-killing regulation. And, yes, Americans voted for an independent judiciary, as cited by Obama as an important factor of our nation. The Supreme Court of the United States will soon become a key focus with appointments of justices who view the U.S. Constitution as the Law of our Land for application to cases and law in question, not a modern rendition using a document open to arbitrary interpretation.

In his remarks from Germany, Obama offered woes of the power of social media in empowering the citizenry in the same breaths of telling protesters who don’t want to accept the results of the election, “I wouldn’t advise them to be silent.”

The legacy of Barack Obama is sealed. He failed. He destroyed his own political party through his radical leftism that neutered most every institution of our nation while giving voice and standing to the Cupcake Nation of the entitled and arrogant. So by all means, sir, apologize. Just not for the nation you tried to destroy.
