Meanwhile, on the Democrat Side
US presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton says her Republican rival, Donald Trump, cannot become the next president.
Speaking at the annual NAACP conference in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Monday, Clinton called on the civil-rights group to defeat Trump, saying he was unfit to run the country.
“Donald Trump plays coy with white supremacists. Donald Trump insults Mexican immigrants… Donald Trump demeans women. Donald Trump wants to ban an entire religion from entering our country and Donald Trump loves to talk to the press,” she said.
She made the remarks as the Republican National Convention was underway in Cleveland to elect him as the GOP nominee.
The convention turned into a chaotic situation as Trump’s opponents chanted “Roll call vote! Roll call vote!” in a bid to demand a vote by all 2,472 delegates on a procedural motion required before the convention can officially get underway.
Clinton told the NAACP crowd that Trump poses…
President Obama addressed diplomats at a reception Friday, the day after a jihadist killed 84 people in France, and said the United Nations’ plan for sustainable development and global unity is all that’s needed to defeat the terrorists.
Obama called for “a new sustainable development set of goals to end extreme poverty and promote health and education and equality for all people, including women.”
That was a direct reference to the U.N.’s new “2030 Agenda,” in which the new sustainable development goals or SDGs are being promoted as the answer to all of mankind’s problems — including the eradication of poverty and saving the planet from climate change.
The 2030 Agenda, which is the U.N.’s updated version of Agenda 21, also includes for the first time the rights of migrants to move across open borders for economic opportunity.
“Obama simply reflects his globalist handlers when he suggests that the solution to the world’s problems will be found in everyone’s submission to a single globalist power,” writes Patrick Wood for Technocracy News and Trends.
Obama told the ambassadors gathered at the reception that the world needs to “build strong institutions to protect people from those impulses” of national or cultural pride. This seemed to be a reference to supporters of Donald Trump in the U.S. and other nationalist-oriented parties gaining popularity in Europe. These parties are now calling for their countries to follow Britain’s recent example and exit the European Union.
That’s a path that will not succeed in America or anywhere else, Obama said.
“In other words, all Americans should stop being so selfish and self-centered and surrender themselves to the global ‘common good,'” Wood wrote.
Obama added that “hatred and violence of a few ultimately is no match for the love and decency and hard work of people of goodwill and compassion.”
He said the world needed to work with “our Muslim partners” to “push back against hateful ideologies that twist and distort Islam – a religion that teaches peace and justice and compassion.”
“We will defeat these ideologies by offering a better vision of development and economic progress,” Obama added.
