    These leftist shills aren't even trying to hide it any more - Here we have a sitting secretary of state saying flat out that their goals are to rip down borders, flood our nations will 3rd world illegals, and presumably subjugate US sovereignty to some as of yet undefined global authority.

    Whatever old Horse Face says or does has little consequence in and of itself, but remember he represents the current power structure, and pretty much represents the views of all lefties including Shillary.

    Kerry slams Trump's wall, tells grads to prepare for 'borderless world'


    Secretary of State John Kerry took a shot at Donald Trump during his Friday commencement speech to Northeastern University graduates, by saying no wall is big enough to keep dangerous terrorists out of the United States.

    "Many of you were in elementary school when you learned the toughest lesson of all on 9/11," he said in his speech at Boston Garden. "There are no walls big enough to stop people from anywhere, tens of thousands of miles away, who are determined to take their own lives while they target others."

    "The future demands from us something more than a nostalgia for some rose-tinted version of the past that did not really exist in any case," he said. "You're about to graduate into a complex and borderless world."

    I thought commencement speeches were supposed to be inspirational? Why is the Obama administration unloading their baggage on these recent graduates?

    I would welcome a borderless world. In a way, we already have one, just not for everybody.

    What I worry about is a jobless world: Get ready, this capitalism you like so much will make american workers redundant and fifteen years from now all you right wingers will be begging for socialist policies.

    Found the full-text of Kerry's speech.

    Of course, the nimrods at the Washington Examiner would pick up on one segment to characterize the entire speech.

    Kerry talks about the need for an engaged America that doesn't hide behind walls, but deals directly with climate change, terrorism, disease, and enduring changes, led by the newly-minted graduates of the college.

    We're not going to have some wide reaching one world government. I wouldn't worry about that. But TV, the internet, high speed mass travel options, overseas trade deals, and all that other good stuff have helped create a world that's much, much smaller than it once was.

    How you extrapolate this ridiculous interpretation from the text of the speech, I have no idea.

    Are you claiming that Kerry did not in fact say what he is reported to have said .... Or just don't like him being called out as a globalist shill and would rather see it on moveon.org ?

    They didn't "pick up on one segment - If you would have bothered to click the link, his comments were posted in their entirety. I posted snippets from that, most forums are very anal about posters reposting entire articles.


    Yep, deal directly, in a border less world.

    Then pray tell, dearest skunk, what a "borderless world" means to you ?

    If there are no borders, then presumably anyone and everyone can pretty much come as they please anywhere and any time they want, right ? [Just as muslims are doing as we speak in Europe, and mexicans and other "hispanics" have been doing here for years] - We are living in increasingly borderless countries only because the left wing is making them that way by fiat, not because its a natural progression, in our best interests or what the population wants.
    Only other explanation is he is speaking in metaphors or rhetorically ,,, And one would have to wonder why a high placed official would do such a thing.

    Point of fact, it would be [and is] the USA & Europe without borders, everyone else would enforce border security without missing a beat. Somehow the leftists think USA & Europe are just big, fat whores laying down for the rest of the world to mount, and save that silly pride and dignity [and national security] stuff for others.

    You're closer to interpreting Kerry accurately than the OP's oversimplified bashing, especially when so many corporations have left the US - even given taxpayer money to do so, as half-proven by the number of people who voted NO on the following vote:

    Never mind that Nixon and Reagan did their share of globetrotting as well.

    Not a literal one, where the US has no sovereignty over its own soil, and Mexicans can cross our always free and open borders without a care in the world. That'd lead to nothing but chaos.

    But from an economic perspective, we just about do live in a borderless world. The US free market, with a good bit of incentivizing from the government, has now spread to all corners of the globe. We now live in a world almost entirely ran under a capitalist economy, which could be considered a good thing. The downside is that it's an economy that will eventually unify not under the flags of individual nations, but through privately owned, entirely stateless entities.

    ...this is basically what you wanted, isn't it?

    I don't see the text—hard to sell with all the blinking chum boxes on that site—but that wasn't really my point. Instead, the Washington Examiner looked at the speech, took the part they hated the most, and ran with that line to characterize the speech.

    Kerry is saying that the country can't hide behind walls and expect borders to protect itself, instead, the U.S. must engage directly with the world. He argued that these problems subvert borders and that the "America First" brigade—once the slogan of Charles Linbergh's campaign—is wrong.

    Because it makes sense in the context of the speech and you would probably better understand the secretary's remarks if you weren't so primed for nonsensical panic about the border by the Washington Examiner.

    Case in point. This silly—and disgusting—metaphor is the prime misunderstanding of those who push for borders.

    They are recent graduates. They just went through 4+ years of the same thing from their professors, so what is one more speech :).

    I have a feeling Kerry wants a do over on this one. Might be one of those things he should think and not say.

    I wouldn't go that far, at least not in a general sense. But right now we kinda do, mostly because right now we don't have the societal maturity or infrastructure to support it.

    Do we? The only thing that national borders seem to do is create structures to support and maintain fundamental differences in wealth between one country and another.

    When you consider a national border—and not one created by natural features—you'll see that the only thing a border contains is the individual worker. Capital moves across borders without hesitation. Goods just long enough for inspections and tariffs. The rain and wind goes where it wants.

    Even the negatives like drugs and disease, and crime move across. Culture drifts across, along with food and ideas.

    But, people have trouble.

    Borders are made to keep people in and keep other people out.

    Wow!!! Just when I thought the wingnuts couldn't possibly get any crazier they go and show me I've given them WAY too much credit.

    How on earth the op and many "news" sites could ever infer this madness from an innocuous and well sourced speech is beyond comprehension for anyone sane.

    I've always just thought of him as simply a schmuck.
