Globalism vs Nationalism – The Immigration Quagmire

Why does Barack Obama strive to flood our nation with unvetted, unemployed immigrants? Speculation ranges from “he cares for the poor” to “he wants to destroy Christians and Jews”. For the moment, let’s assume he cares for the poor.

How will a flood of immigrants improve their lot? View the following video to gain perspective on immigration by the numbers.

Barack Obama decries the notion of American exceptionalism. What does it mean to be exceptional? On-line dictionary WordReference.com defines exceptional: forming an exception or rare instance; unusual; out of the ordinary. Another on-line dictionary defines exceptionalism: a theory that a nation, region, or political system is exceptional and does not conform to the norm.

America is a nation that does not conform to the norm. Our unusual nation is most certainly out of the ordinary. The United States of America is the only country on the face of the earth where the head of government isn’t a tyrant, monarchy, or benevolent dictator. All power is vested in the people.

Perhaps you have had an opportunity to visit another country. My own travels have taken me to China, the Philippines, El Salvador, Mexico, Cuba, Brazil, and Canada. None compare to this great country. America is the number one destination for oppressed people throughout the world.

I met Muslim Background Believer (MBB), the Reverend Karim Baidaoui, missionary to Muslims, at a Gospel for Muslims meeting here in Dallas. Responding to a question on why

Muslims are coming to America he answered, “God is bringing them here because we are not going there.”

Globalists are people who have the attitude or policy of placing the interests of the entire world above those of individual nations. The ranks of globalists living in our country include Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros and Mark Zuckerberg. Others often accused of globalism are, I believe, dupes, useful idiots.

In general, Ameican globalists put other nations before our own. They wish to ‘level the playing field’ to stamp out poverty. They wish this for everyone except themselves.

Why is America so rich and the rest of the world so poor? The answer is in the Bible.

  • Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the Lord makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.”

  • Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you [Israel] and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you [Israel].”

The USA is a friend to Israel. Except for most of the Democrat party, Israel enjoys broad support here in America. Like Israel, our nation was founded on faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – the Bible.

Back to the poverty issue, Americans have been providing funds, education, medical aid, military aid, and other relief to impoverished nations worldwide. Our missionaries continue to empower oppressed, impoverished people everywhere.

What are the globalists doing to us? Globalists wish to level that playing field. It may seem counter-intuitive that wealthy globalists attack capitalism as they push a socialist agenda. I perceive self-deception and godless values. George Soros exposed his hypocrisy in a 60 Minutes interview: He lobbies for more regulation of hedge funds registered in this country, but his own hedge fund operates out of the Netherlands to avoid SEC regulations.

winston-churchill-socialism-quoteI view globalism as large-scale socialism. What is the difference between capitalism and socialism? Capitalism is the natural exchange of goods and services among a free people. Socialism is an unproven economic theory not practiced by those in authority.

Don’t confuse socialism with communism, two distinctly different ideologies.

Globalists view the world through a socialist prism. They want the entire world on the same economic  plane, except for themselves.

What’s the cure? How do we defend ourselves from the globalists? The answer is simple: have faith in God. Read and study the Bible and American history.

First and foremost: The United States of America is not a Christian nation because Christianity is not the state religion. We have no state-established religion, except what I characterize as “practical atheism” created by liberal Supreme Court justices.

Biblical, true, Christianity is not coercive. To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ is a free choice. Not all our founding fathers were Christians, but the majority were. 29 of the signers of the Declaration of Independence held what today would be considered seminary degrees. The least religious founding fathers openly expressed a belief in and accountability to God.

Throughout the presidency of Barack Obama, we have been dragged into a political and spiritual quagmire from which we shall not so easily extract ourselves without the help of God.

My plan of action includes several elements. One is to remember who I am, a son of God, a joint-heir with Jesus Christ, someone with a mandate to communicate the good news of the Kingdom of God to unbelieving immigrants that land on our shores. I purpose to daily repent of my sins before God. A drowning man cannot save another drowning man.

In a later posting, I will be discussing the moral hierarchy.  For now, think of yourself as a traveler, like an airline passenger. The flight attendant instructs us to FIRST put on our own oxygen mask before assisting others. This isn’t selfishness; it’s common sense. If you as an airline passenger went about assisting others with their oxygen masks with the intention of applying yours later, you will perish. What good are you to others if you are dead?

Globalists want us to help the rest of the world with their ‘oxygen masks’ before we put on our own. Can you see the peril of this thinking?

Let’s elect leaders who will put America first so we can continue to come to the aid of impoverished and oppressed people throughout the world.
