    Obama Calls For Collectivized New World Order
    "People are anxious.... the old order isn’t holding"

    During a fundraiser in Seattle this week, President Barack Obama called for a “new order” based around a collectivized system in order to quell people’s concerns about geopolitical strife and the economy.

    “People are anxious. Now, some of that has to do with some big challenges overseas,” said Obama, adding, “But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbors in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria … to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise … to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza….”

    “Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people. … But here in the United States, what people are also concerned about is the fact that although the economy has done well in the aggregate, for the average person it feels as if incomes, wages just haven’t gone up; that people, no matter how hard they work, they feel stuck.”

    In a geopolitical context, Obama’s call for a “new order” really doesn’t sound any different from the old unipolar world order that the United States has represented since the end of the Cold War, which is now being challenged by the rise of the BRICS countries.

    Developments over the course of the past year have made it clear that the United States no longer considers Russia to be part of this “new order” as a result of its resistance to NATO encirclement.

    In terms of the economy, Obama’s insistence on “economies that work for all people” based on “common humanity” is in direct contradiction to his actual policies, which have almost exclusively served to help Wall Street fat cats while the average American sees their household income decline year after year when adjusted for inflation.

    This is by no means the first time that Obama has called for a new world order.

    During a 2010 West Point speech, the President encouraged the development of a new “international order” to help secure America’s interests.

    Obama also urged Europeans and Americans to embrace the idea of “global citizenship” during a

    2012 Berlin speech.

    Vice-President Joe Biden has also repeatedly called for a “new world order.”

    We do need one though.

    The ordinary people are totally pissed -off with the rich getting richer, and terrible groups like ISIS etc wreaking havoc with peoples lives whilst the rest of the world looks on.

    The problem with the present political system is that vested interests control the real power, not least amongst those are the Arms Dealers who willingly supply both sides. Dylan's "Masters of War" comes to mind.

    This is neither news nor opinion. The author knows nothing of America or geopolitics. What will you losers do when Obama leaves office?

    No president during my lifetime has been so maligned. His race bothers you. Tough luck. We won the election. I suggest you read some academic political science journals. There must be some political discussion group where you live.

    I've gotten used to having an adult as President. It's been rather refreshing!

    I agree that Obama is a breath of fresh air! He has behaved naively many times, actually believing he could reason and compromise with other politicians who have no idea what being a decent human being is.

    He has fought the good fight as best he could, but usually was too willing to concede to his opponents. He did get us healthcare to some degree. I think that will be his legacy.

    He and his wife grew up very differently from the babified, rich politicians they are surrounded by. It's good to have a president who knows how the real world works. It sucks that he is surrounded by infantile narcissists who are used to getting their own way and constantly throw tantrums.
