Biden In Commencement Speech: 2020 Grads Will Define What It Means to Be “Global Citizens”

But not American Patriots.

Published

Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden claimed that 2020 graduates will “redefine what it means to be a global citizen” in a virtual commencement address for Delaware State University Saturday.

Some of you will redefine what it means to be a global citizen, and lead the way in uniting people regardless of age, race, gender, or zip code.

You’d almost think that uniting people of differing backgrounds in the United States would entail a shared national identity, as opposed to merely being a vague and meaningless “global citizen.”

Being identified as a “global citizens” is deeply antithetical to how many American citizens define their identity, but the concept has been popular with the neoliberal globalist establishment for decades now. Biden’s endorsement of the concept could signal that he plans to govern in a fashion similar to Barack Obama, who has used the bizarre phrase in prolific fashion.

The term is almost never explicitly defined, and some have pointed out that it’s inherently contradictory. ‘Citizen’ is defined as “legally recognized subject or national of a state or commonwealth,” and the suggestion of a global citizen is an oxymoron that could only exist in a world with a global government.

Oddly enough, the 97-second video containing Biden’s commencement remarks features three different edits- suggesting the at times verbally challenged former Vice President couldn’t get through his remarks to the graduates in one take on camera.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
