The leading global-universalist in America during the last
presidential administration was Barack H. Obama himself. We
believe he is still the leader of that pack, during daylight hours as well as candlelight, flashlight, lamplight, and dark hours.

And we cannot help but ask: How in blazes is that supposed to help The People of these United States do anything well, good, or better? Globalism may work in the small minds of some men, but it is not designed to work for those who believe in NATIONAL-sovereignty!

Barack Obama, as president, did more harm to the average
American citizen than anyone alive today will be able to fix, hide, or
defend. According to spread-around information, he is still spreading hiswares around -- and there will be people who follow him, wherever hemay lead. Money begats power. . . and power begats money! FACT!
