On Tuesday, Barack Obama addressed the “Star Wars Bar Scene” also known as the United Nations General Assembly.  During that speech, he made some statements that would have Ben Franklin rolling in his grave.  According to the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, America must give up some freedom to enhance security and submit to a world government.

We have to put our money where our mouths are. And we can only realize the promise of this institution’s founding to replace the ravages of war with cooperation if powerful nations like my own accept constraints,” he said.  “Sometimes I’m criticized in my own country for professing a belief in international norms and multilateral institutions, but I’m convinced in the long run giving up some freedom of action, not giving up our ability to protect ourselves or pursue our core interests but binding ourselves to international rules, over the long-term, enhances our security.”

The Federalist added:

After declaring that subordinating American sovereignty to a body of international bureaucrats would make the U.S. safer, Obama renewed his call for countries like the U.S. to absorb more Middle Eastern refugees. The president has been facing mounting pressure to tighten the screening and vetting of Middle Eastern immigrants in light of multiple terrorist attacks against the U.S. by foreign-born terrorists.

Breitbart also noted that he took a swipe at Donald Trump without mentioning him by name:

Obama alluded to Donald Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall on the Southern border three times, pointing out that such an action would be futile to stop many of the threats facing the world.

“Today, a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself,” he said.

“The world is too small for us to simply be able to build a wall and prevent it from affecting our own societies,” he said afterwards.

“Mosquitoes don’t respect walls,” he added later referring to the Zika virus.
