Hank Sullivan: Nationalism vs. Globalism is the issue

The battle between nationalism and globalism is the issue of our day, not conservatism vs. liberalism, not libertarianism vs. socialism. Forget your chosen “ism” for just a second and notice what is going on in Washington, D.C. and around the world. Get the big picture, friends. Just listen to what globalist Angela Merkel of Germany said recently about nationalism.  According to Merkel, “Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty.” Really now.

And earlier this month, globalist French President Emmanuel Macron scolded President Donald Trump directly, disparaging Trump’s patriotism at the World War I armistice centennial in Paris, alleging, “Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism.”  

So according to Macron, one cannot love one’s country and be a patriot at the same time. Macron claims love of country and patriotism are opposites. These are word tricks, gaslighting, and they won’t work.  And you might remember last Spring, when addressing a joint U.S. Congress, Macron chose that inopportune time to attack Trump and Trump’s nationalism in Trump’s own national capital, pointing his finger and demanding, “The United States is the one who invented this multilateralism (nice word for globalism). You are the one now who has to help to preserve and reinvent it.”

Like Trump, both Merkel and Macron consistently contrast nationalism against globalism. But opposing Trump, they take the side of the U.S. and all nations of the world handing in national sovereignty in favor of a one-world corporate government. 

George Soros once famously stated, “A global society does not mean a global state … the sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions.”  

In his statement Soros describes exactly what globalism is. The “international institutions” Soros refers to are those which impart private control over the world’s resources, the world’s production and international trade.  

Globalists desire a borderless world in which an elite class is instituted at the top, creating a state of affairs the globalists purposely mislabel, “free trade,” which is only “free” for the globalist elite who own and control the issuance of worldwide corporate currency. Is that what you want, the state of world affairs described by Merkel, Macron and Soros? 

Because if you do not get behind our president, regardless of your party affiliation or personal ideology, that is what you will get. Those who promote a United States without borders, which includes practically all Democrats at the state and federal levels, but also many Republicans, are globalists. That is how you can identify them. 

Globalism is worldwide corporate-fascism, a New World Order in which the people of America and the world are at the bottom with private overseers reigning over them. Macron was right.  Globalism is an American invention. Globalism is the place George Bush Sr., Bill Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama were taking America and the world. A Hillary Clinton presidency would have cemented worldwide corporate-fascism as a way of life in the former United States of America ... forever. Only a true people’s revolution or military coup against the globalist government would have been able to change that.  

President Trump’s effort to drain the swamp is, in essence, a disentangling of the members of the globalist deep state from positions of power in our federal government. It is a complicated process, especially politically. That is because the globalists control a lot of the mainstream media in this country. The mainstream media stands in the way between Trump and the American people and moves to thwart his every purpose with fake news. That is why Trump calls fake news the enemy of the people. That is why he uses Twitter, which Trump will never abandon, as a life-line between the Oval Office and the American people.

America is the last, best hope of earth, friends. When America goes down under worldwide corporate-fascism, it will be time to open the Book of Revelation to see what comes next. Had Trump not decided to run, and had he not won the presidency, that is where we would be. If you love America, regardless of party, if you want America to fulfill its charter of 1776, then it is time to drop all this personal ideology stuff. Drop conservatism. Drop liberalism. Drop libertarianism, drop socialism for just a second. Drop all of those “ism’s” and get behind our president. If we do not have a country, none of your “ism’s” even matter. They will be absorbed and suppressed by the worldwide corporate “ism,” globalism.

And while I’m at it, stop being ruled by your chosen “ism.” Stop being ruled by a need for the world to achieve your chosen ideal political state. First, it ain’t gonna happen. And second, were it to materialize, it could only be by force because the overwhelming majority of Americans and the world reject your idea of the perfect world. So get over it and get behind our president. Let’s get America back from the globalist cabal that took it over, return to the constitutional republic of, by and for the people. After that is complete, then let’s talk about your personal ideals and “ism’s.” Stop being blinded by your own political desires, before it’s too late.
