Decoding/ Deconstructing and Fact-Checking USAID Administrator Samantha Power’s “Foreign Policy Address” of June 7, 2022 (Part IV)

22 mins read

While Part IV of the commentary below stands on its own merits, I recommend first reading Part I, Part II and Part III to gain a comprehensive understanding of my analysis and arguments.

 The Queen is naked!

There is an old morality tale of the “Emperor’s New Clothes.”

Two con artist tailors promised to make the king the finest and rarest of all silk robes.

They told the king the robe they make is so special that it is invisible to anyone who is unfit for their official position or hopelessly stupid.

The king and his ministers would drop in and admire the tailors’ craftsmanship of the tailors as they set out to sew their make-believe robes.

None would dare challenge them afraid of being called unfit for office or stupid.

Finally, the tailors dressed the king in their make-believe silk robe and marched him down the street naked to the applause of his cowardly courtiers and cheers of his abject subjects.

A child in the crowd suddenly yelled, “The king is naked!”

The crowd burst into a crescendo, “The king is naked, indeed!”

The king cringed with shame and embarrassment but held himself up proudly as he continued to walk naked in the royal procession.

So it is with Samantha Power, the Queen of Beggars/the American Empire of Alms (a/k/a USAID) and wannabe US Secretary of State.

The Queen of Global Beggars is naked!

For over two decades, Power has been lionized  by her courtiers, sycophants and groupies as a crusader for human rights and defender of the world’s victims of genocide and such.

She was given awards and named to lead an ivy league human rights organization.

The fake news media and bleeding-heart liberals went ga-ga over her so-called reporting in conflict zones.

As did the self-aggrandizing so-called human rights organizations like AmNasty International, Human Rights Watch, and Freedom House which is funded by Power’s organization and  sponsored her “major foreign policy speech.”

But all that was a perfect cover for her blind ambition to get as close possible to the center of power. She managed to do that in the Obama administration.

No USAID Administrator has ever given a “major foreign policy speech” since that office was established in 1961!

Power’s “major foreign policy speech” of June 7, 2022 was intended to be her  “finest silk robe” as she came out in public and pre-positioned herself to become the next US Secretary of State.

Alas!

“The Queen is naked!”

Just listening to her speech, few would be able decipher her blind ambition for power.

But for those who are paying attention, it was a simple case of “If it quacks like a duck, swims like a duck and walks like a duck, then it is a duck.”

In her June 7th speech, Power was quacking like a Secretary of State, that US official designated as the fourth in line in the constitutional order of presidential succession in America, not as a third-tier USAID apparatchik.

No reasonable person would disagree with the late Senator John McCain’s uncanny and eerily prophetic description of Blinken in 2014 as “dangerous to America.” (See Part I of this series for details.)

Blinken will be let out to pasture after the midterm elections, I surmise.

Regardless, Power’s “major foreign policy speech” was intended to showcase her as a heavy weight in the field of foreign policy and as a peerless global crusader for human rights.

Shockingly, her speech backfired and proved to the world Power is a naïve flyweight and an empty barrel.

Power’s aim in her speech was to launch a global democratic and ideological “revolution of dignity” to solidify her foreign policy credentials as a potential Secretary of State,

Her plan is to effectuate the revolution by packaging and selling a digitally fortified liberal democracy.

Power hopes to use the brow-beating rhetoric of human rights and free and fair elections to name and shame and discredit assorted “dictators,” “oligarchs,” despots and such.

Power plans to assemble and mobilize a global army composed of civil society organizations, multilateral bodies, etc., to launch her revolution.

Power hopes to deploy the media for her revolutionary propaganda and legal campaigns in America to track down and dispossess assorted corrupt global kleptocrats.

Sadly, Power’s narrative for democratization of the world and propagation of her  gospel of human rights testifies to her embarrassingly shallow and hollow understanding of contemporary global complexities.

Power is pitifully inarticulate in getting her points across often relying on worn-out cliches, platitudes and truisms.

“Democracy is poised for a comeback,” is Power’s mantra in her speech.

Poised for a comeback after a “revolution of dignity.”

Power’s speech is not only full of insipid hokum but is appallingly bereft of any originality!

She seems to be totally oblivious of President Woodrow Wilson’s 14-oint blueprint for global peace, democracy, collective security, etc. even though her speech is infused and dripping with “Wilsonian idealism.”

But Power is quick to credit Ronald Reagan and his crusade for democracy while ignoring, and certainly not acknowledging Woodrow Wilson, the O.G. who tried to make the “world safe for democracy.”

Power’s Manichean depiction of the contemporary world — of black and white, good and evil with no shades of gray — is cartoonish and a caricature of popular sci-fi/fantasy.

The Queen’s Revolutionary War of Dignity: Pax Obama/Biden New World Order?

A declaration of war is a formal act by which one state announces existing or impending belligerent activity against another.

Power’s speech is undoubtedly an ideological declaration of war on the evil forces of the world which she describes variously as “authoritarian,” “illiberal forces,” “autocrats,” “despots,” “oligarchs,” “enemies of democracy,” “dictators,” etc.

Power’s ideological revolutionary war of dignity mimics the intergalactic conflicts of Star Wars science fantasy.

In her speech, Princess Samantha depicted a revolutionary war to be fought between those on the Light Side of the Force who will wage a revolutionary war of dignity against those on the on the Dark Side of  the Force living in shame and infamy.

The Revolution of Dignity is a rescue mission led by Princess Samantha herself wielding the light saber of alms, handouts, hand-me-downs, freebies and free lunches.

Princess Samantha sees herself as the real-life Princess Leia leading the Forces of the Light Side in a “Revolution of Dignity” against the sinister and tyrannical Sith Lords Vladimir Putin of the Evil Empire of Russia and Xi Jinping of the Evil Empire of China.

In Power’s intergalactic wars, those on the Light Side of the Force are fighting to save the world from Covid, poverty, starvation, etc.

They are on a rescue mission to save the world from the clutches of the Forces of the Dark Side by deploying “groundbreaking acts of innovation” managed by “hypercompetent” trailblazers making common cause with “allies in the private sector, civil society, multilateral institutions, religious and diaspora communities, everyday citizens.”

Princess Samantha’s principal mission is to bring about the total destruction of the Empires of the Sith Lords by convincing the benighted Earthlings trapped in the Dark Side to abandon the ways of the Force of the Dark Side and come over and join to the Forces of the Light Side.

Power’s Revolution of  Dignity will be fought on battleground of the hearts, minds and stomachs of the denizens of the Dark Side.

Salvation and deliverance come to those under the control of the Dark Side of the Force after Power evangelizes them with the religion of American liberal democracy and forces them to cleanse themselves of corruption, the original sin that stains their souls.

Power’s delusional revolution of dignity is not only cartoonish and puerile but also downright condescending and offensive.

Power’s “revolution of dignity” is downright repulsive and outrageous.

Does Power have the vaguest notion of what a revolution is, not only in practice but also metaphorically?

Does Power know the difference between dignity and indignity? Shame and honor?  Respect and contempt?

Here is a short lesson for her.

A revolution is always an act of liberation by the oppressed against the oppressor.

The oppressor can only oppress, never liberate.

Pray tell!

How can the oppressor conduct a revolution of dignity on the oppressed?

Revolutions can be peaceful or violent.

Exhibit A: The American Revolution violently overthrew oppressive British colonial rule in the 13 American colonies.

The American colonists were forced to resort to revolution because they were no longer willing to accept the “long train of abuses and usurpations” to their dignity and the insufferable indignities relentlessly inflicted upon them by the British Crown with impunity.

The American Revolution memorialized in the timeless “Declaration of Independence” was quintessentially a revolution of dignity, equality and liberty.

The American colonists took the path of revolution because they were denied the dignity of being British subjects, not because of “light and transient causes” as Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence or because they desired a new identity as “Americans.”

The American colonists opted for a revolution by putting their lives on the firing line because they were denied their God-given dignity in their humanity.

The 1774 First Continental Congress’ Petition to King George III pleaded for restoration of the colonists “pre-eminent rank of English freeman” from their “degraded state of servitude.” That was a plea for dignity!

The 1775 Second Petition from Congress to the King demanded respect for the colonists and cessation of infliction of indignity on colonists as the price to avoid a revolutionary war. That was a warning demanding dignity!

The 1776 Declaration of Independence was the price Britain had to pay for denying the colonists dignity.

In the Declaration, the colonists asserted their inherent dignity:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

The American Revolution was about the dignity of the colonist having their voices heard in the British Parliament and respect for their natural right to form a government of their own choosing.

The American Revolution was about the dignity of establishing the right to self-government and representation. The timeless rallying cry of the American colonists was, “No Taxation Without Representation.”

It was a revolution against a monarch “unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”

The American Revolution was about the dignity of receiving impartial justice and the “benefits of Trial by Jury” and administration of justice by judges who are not lackeys of the king but learned jurists who decide cases and controversies based on a fair and impartial reading of the law.

The American Revolution was about the dignity of the colonists to conduct their own trade and commerce, and not be subjected to crippling sanctions which “cut  off their Trade with all parts of the world.”

Samantha Power should first study the American Revolution and learn about a revolution of dignity before preaching it to the world.

Power’s evangelism of a global revolution of dignity is an affront to and debasement of the people who struggled for dignity in the American Revolution.

In her speech, Power arrogantly dictates the terms and conditions of democracy and the human rights the world is allowed to have.

Power carries the cudgel of crippling sanctions against those who refuse or are defiant of the imperial commands of democracy and human rights issued to them.

Power’s notion of “revolution of dignity” echoes the “civilizing mission” of the 19th century European colonial powers.

The colonial civilizing mission was the “grand project that justified colonialism as a means of redeeming the backward, aberrant, violent, oppressed, undeveloped people of the non-European world by incorporating them into the universal civilization of Europe.”

Back then, those who believed themselves to be on the Light Side of the Force violently occupied those on the “Dark Continent” filled with “half children, half devils.”

Power’s revolution of dignity is the civilizing (“human rights”) mission of our age.

European colonialism sought to redeem the “half child, half devil” savages of the world by civilizing them into accepting the “natural order of things,” namely white supremacy.

Power’s revolution of dignity aims to do the same. Use the rhetoric of “human rights” to save the world’s “half children, half devils” from their own barbaric and savage selves.

Power is clueless about dignity.

The fact that she feels emboldened to wage a revolution of dignity on the poorer nations and non-compliant non-Western world shows her insufferable hubris and insolence.

Power does not even stop and ask — as a thought experiment — if the people she has consigned to the Dark Side want to be saved in her revolution of dignity or want to be converted to the religion of liberal democracy.

Let there be no mistake!

Power says those on the Dark Side will undergo a Revolution of Dignity regardless of their protestations about its flagitious breach of their sovereignty, humanity, unity or dignity.

Just like they did not have a choice when the Europeans brought colonialism justified as a civilizing mission.

Now, it is a dignity revolutionizing mission.

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. (The more things change, the more they remain the  same.”

Power is using her “revolution of dignity” to conceal the fact that she and her bosses are scheming to trap the people they have consigned to the Dark Side into the bondage of the Obama/Biden New World Order.

Power’s “revolution of dignity”: Case study of indignity inflicted upon Ethiopia

When I wrote my commentary “Clash of Civilizations: Ethiopia and the US at the Crossroads” in December 2021, I argued the central and core issue in the relations between the two countries revolves around the Biden administration’s utter disregard of Ethiopia’s dignity, sovereignty, unity and national pride.

I am deeply offended by Power’s and the Biden administration’s flagrant meddling into Ethiopia’s internal affairs.

That is an insufferable indignity inflicted upon Ethiopia’s honor!

I am deeply offended by Power’s and the Biden administration’s arm-twisting and kneecapping of Ethiopia to force it to negotiate with the terrorist TPLF.

That is an insufferable indignity inflicted upon Ethiopia’s honor!

I am deeply offended by Power’s and the Biden administration’s concerted and relentless efforts to restore the terrorist TPLF to power.

That is an insufferable indignity inflicted upon Ethiopia’s honor!

I am deeply offended by Power’s and the Biden administration’s moral equivalency of a murderous terrorist group with the democratically elected government of Ethiopia.

That is an insufferable indignity inflicted upon Ethiopia’s honor!

I am deeply offended by Power’s and the Biden administration’s policy of turning a blind eye to child soldiers conscripted into the terrorist TPLF arms, theft of humanitarian aid and conversion of humanitarian trucks into terrorist transports while viciously criminalizing, demonizing and dehumanizing the elected government of Ethiopia.

That is an insufferable indignity inflicted upon Ethiopia’s honor!

I am deeply offended by Power’s and the Biden administration’s policy of trivializing and totally disregarding the inhuman, diabolical and bestial crimes committed against Ethiopian soldiers in the Northern Command by the TPLF.

That is an insufferable indignity inflicted upon Ethiopia’s honor!

I  am deeply offended by Power’s and the Biden administration’s crippling sanctions and humiliating treatment of Ethiopians as worthless beggars. Ethiopians may be poor materially but are second to none when it comes to pride in their country, the land of  the origin of humanity.

That is an insufferable indignity inflicted upon Ethiopia honor!

I  am deeply offended by Power’s and the Biden administration’s campaign hectoring Americans to leave Ethiopia as part of the psychological operations to restore the TPLF to power.

That was an insufferable indignity on Ethiopia!

Call me petty but I was deeply offended when Power and Biden did not even acknowledge and congratulate Ethiopia for having its first African Union-certified free and fair election in its long and storied history.

I could go on with the “train of abuses and usurpations” Power, Blinken, the Princess of Darkness Susan Rice and the Biden administration have unleashed on Ethiopia over the past year and half.

Hell hath no fury like a man whose dignity — whose people’s dignity — has been trashed.

Damn right, I have a righteous axe to grind!

I made my case in defense of Ethiopia’s dignity in my “Clash of Civilization’s” commentary.

This was my impassioned closing argument in defense of Ethiopia’s dignity to the jury of the court of world public opinion:

Today, the world is witnessing a titanic struggle — a David versus Goliath contest — between a small and ancient civilization that sustains itself on pride, dignity and sovereignty and a superpower civilization driven mad by a toxic doctrine of global hegemony as its manifest destiny.

Ethiopian Civilization today is the African battleground in the struggle between white supremacy, conspiracy, belligerency, idiocy and lunacy on the one hand, and black African primacy, independency, democracy, resiliency, prophesy and decency, on the other.

Ethiopians value personal dignity and national sovereignty above life itself. That is why they have ALWAYS defeated white supremacy and kept their nation free and independent for over 3 thousand years!

In defending their dignity and sovereignty against an imperialist, neocolonial proxy war, Ethiopians from all part of the country — from shoeshine boys to old women in their 80s — volunteered by the hundreds of thousands to fight against the U.S.-sponsored terrorist TPLF.

It is best for the U.S. to reassess its relations with Ethiopia and restructure its relations by understanding the cultural fundamentals of Ethiopian Civilization built on personal dignity and national sovereignty.

Bob Dylan said, “When you ain’t got nothing, you ain’t got nothing to lose.”

Ethiopia, compared to America, is poor and some may feel it ain’t got nothing to lose.

But Ethiopia has something more valuable than all the money in the world: DIGNITY and SOVEREIGNTY.

Without dignity and sovereignty, neither a person nor a nation has anything of value.

I say to the Biden administration, let’s mend fences before it is too, too late.

Let’s bury the hatchet and the TPLF together and on that graveyard build a harmony of civilizations!

Let’s not cast to the East wind relations built over 120 years.

We can get along as equals, as sovereigns and as peoples with shared goals for the good of humanity.

The ball is in Biden’s court.

He can play a game of Chicken Little and chicken brinksmanship and try to plunge Ethiopia into economic and political turmoil.

That, like all of the intrigues and conspiracies the U.S. has undertaken over the past year to sabotage Ethiopia, will FAIL!

Ethiopian, on whose behalf the great historian of Western Civilization Gibbon testified, are “an unwarlike people who are interested in a rational project of importing the arts and ingenuity of Europe; and their ambassadors at Rome and Lisbon were instructed to solicit a colony of smiths, carpenters, tilers, masons, printers, surgeons, and physicians, for the use of their country.”

Change Europe to America and Gibbon’s description holds true today.

As I have said time and again, there is no power on earth that can stop Ethiopia from taking its rightful place in the African Sun.

There is no need Ethiopia-U.S. relations should remain in the darkness because  of the intrigues and wicked schemes of Susan Rice, the DUCHESS OF DARKNESS!

“Hope springs eternal in the human breast: Man never is, but always to be blest.”

I am an unapologetic, unrepentant, incorrigible, hard core and dyed-in-the-wool defender of Ethiopia’s dignity. Period!

So much so, in my “Clash of Civilizations” commentary, I waxed poetic about Ethiopia’s dignity.

Ethiopia is a land of dignity
America a land of liberty
We can come together in unity
After all, Ethiopia is the cradle of humanity.

America must respect Ethiopia’s sovereignty
Treat its citizens with respect and dignity
It is the only way to avoid enmity
And live in beautiful mutuality.

Ethiopians don’t need no white supremacy
They will die to maintain their independency
Ethiopians are committed to human rights and democracy
But not the kind enforced by white supremacy.

Two great civilizations can live together
In equality and sovereignty as sister and brother
Ethiopia, the cradle of humanity
America land of the brave and fraternity
We can partner together in dignity.

Power, Susan Rice, Antony Blinken, various US senators and representatives have committed and inflicted egregious, unforgettable and unforgiveable transgressions on the dignity on Ethiopia.

They can rest assured that their continued indignities upon Ethiopia’s dignity will not go unanswered.

After all, it is not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog that determines the outcome.

All who treat Ethiopia with dignity and honor are my dear friends and the rest…

Power hawking liberal democracy as a panacea to the world’s problems

In her speech, Power demonstrated she is pitifully bereft of any originality.

The “democracy” she wants to spread around the world in her revolution of dignity is the same exact democracy Woodrow Wilson’s a century ago and Francis Fukuyama more recently in his  “end of history” were trying to spread.

In 1918, at the close of WWI, President Woodrow Wilson issued his famous Fourteen Points to promote world peace, collective security and capitalism, and promote liberty and democracy globally by making America “a high wall behind which (particularly small) nations” “could exercise their right of self-determination.”

Wilsonian idealism is based on “altruism and trust in order to collectively pursue the highest goals” set forth in the 14-points.

Power’s highest goals are a subset of  Wilson’s.

It is interesting that Power takes pride in being educated as an “idealist.”

I wonder if she was ever educated in the failures of Wilsonian idealism!

Wilson believed he could destroy “autocracy” with his 14-points.

Today, Power believes she can destroy “autocracy” in a “revolution of dignity.”

Power’s democracy also resonates Francis Fukuyama’s “theory of the end of history.”

Fukuyama argued the world has reached the “end of history” in a Hegelian sense; that is the end point of mankind’s ideological evolution.

Fukuyama argued capitalist liberal democracy was the “end of history” because it had successfully removed the “internal contradictions” that had ruptured past schemes for ordering society.

Power’s argument about the victory of the Light Side of the Force over the Dark Side of the Force is precisely Fukuyama’s.

Power argued in her speech the Forces of the Dark Side

“are weaker and less capable than democracies… Now, in this moment again, a key moment, a moment of profound weakness for the world’s illiberal forces, America and all who share our values—the world’s democracies, allies in the private sector, civil society, multilateral institutions, religious and diaspora communities, everyday citizens…

But Power will find the answer neither in Wilson nor in Fukuyama.

Power can find the answer in the pamphlets (“Common Sense” January, 1776) of the great Thomas Paine, an English émigré-turned-American revolutionary who came to the American colonies 2 years before the Declaration of Independence.

Paine wrote in Common Sense, “The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind.” He cautioned,  “The present state of America is truly alarming to every man who is capable of reflection.”

I too believe the cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind.

The present state of America in 2022 is truly alarming to me and should be to every man who is capable of reflection and loves America.

In my September 29, 2020 commentary, “Saving the Last Best Hope of Earth from the Beast!”, I have shared my reflections and hopes on the present state of America.

The American Crisis  of which Paine wrote is the World Crisis of 2022:

These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Today, we — all humanity –are living in times that try men’s, women’s and children’s souls.

American history today is divided into BT and AT.

The world sees America using two historical lenses: B.T. (Before Trump) and A.T. (After Trump).

Trump has shown the fragility of the much vaunted and storied American democracy of 235 years.

Today, in AT America we face times that try men’s and women’s souls.

Could we as Americans be looking into the bloodshot eyes of the Red Horseman of the Apocalypse?

One eminent scholar and public servant recently wrote, “The second American civil war is already occurring, but it is less of a war than a kind of benign separation analogous to unhappily married people who don’t want to go through the trauma of a formal divorce.”

The idea of a United States pf America becoming the Divided and Fallen States of America is a prospect that tries the souls,  bodies and spirits of good men and women in America.

A 2021 national poll showed nearly half of American “voters think we are headed for bloodshed!”

Over 74 million Americans, the vast majority of whom are Republicans, voted for Trump in 2020.

Most Republicans believe the 2020 presidential election was stolen.”

Are we looking at the harbingers of civil war?

American politics is so polarized our representatives in Congress do not even talk to each other let alone work in the spirit of bipartisanship for the good of the country.

Armed groups are popping up all over the country. The so-called Proud Boys and Oath Takers tried to physically take over Congress not too long ago.

There is little confidence in American institutions.

A Gallup Poll last month showed only 16 percent of Americans approve the work Congress is doing.

A national survey last month found a whopping 58% of voters disapprove of Biden’s job performance, representing the highest disapproval rating since he took office.

A recent national poll found 54 percent of Americans disapprove of the job the Supreme Court is doing.

American democracy is on life support.

We are at an inflection point in America.

In 52 years of living in America I love and whose Constitution I have taken a solemn vow to defend and protect, I have not seen such a dark period as now.

The internecine culture and legal wars are destroying America from within.

Racial inequality, income inequality, uncontrolled access to firearms, denial of the woman’s right to reproductive choice, false doubts about election legitimacy, refusal to acknowledge the irrefutable fact of climate change, opposition to life-saving vaccines and so on are tearing America apart.

There has been a mass shooting in America EVERY SINGLE DAY of 2022.

In her speech Power said, “The global case for democracy has always been rooted in this country’s democratic legitimacy and strength—the endurance of our institutions, each passing generation’s sacrifice to make ours a more perfect union, the sanctity of our elections.”

Power is living in la-la land.

All Americans need to work together to heal America First.

Let other countries take care of themselves. America is not the policeman of the world. We have policing problems of our own.

The U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol is conducting proceedings to save American democracy.

In 2017 Power said,

It should worry all Americans that a foreign government interfered in the U.S. election. It is not about the leader we choose- but about who gets to choose our leader.

Yet Power wants to choose the democracy the world will have and the leaders that will run that democracy.

Power will impose her democracy on the world come hell or high water.

In these dark times that try men’s and women’s souls, I want to heed George Washington’s “America First” foreign policy.

Washington in his Farewell Address urged the American people to avoid political partisanship and entanglements with European wars, and I should like to believe with any other wars.

Washington said:

The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible… By interweaving our destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rivalship, interest, humor or caprice?

Washington was absolutely right. America should not interweave her destiny with Africa, Europe or Asia.

America should not entangle her peace and prosperity with the war and poverty of other nations.

Am I an isolationist?

If I am,  so was George Washington.

The tragedy of Power’s “White Woman’s Burden”

Rudyard Kipling lamented the White Man’s Burden.

Little did he contemplate the White Woman’s Burden.

Power is terminally afflicted by the disease of “White Woman’s Burden.”

Thomas Friedman in a review of Power’s book “The Education of an Idealist: A Memoir” wrote, Power “was a table-pounding idealist and human rights advocate, and believed in using American power to protect innocent civilians and advance democracy.”

Not unlike the office in Vietnam who said, “We had to destroy the village in order to save it.”

Indeed, if Power had a shred of intellectual honesty would have titled her book, “A Bleeding-Heart White Woman’s Burden to Save the World’s Half Children and Half Devils.”

Power wants to export wholesale American liberal democracy and her gospel of human rights to the rest of the world and enforce it with American military might.

That makes her a modern neocolonial agent.

Because her mind is infected by congenital white supremacy and she carries the “White Woman’s Burden” on her shoulders,  she is incapable of stepping out and looking at herself and her ideas and how offensive they are to the world.

I understand all of the song and dance about a revolution of dignity, democracy, etc.,  is about reinvigorating the Obama/Biden New World Order. I get it!

What I find outrageously hubristic is Power’s depraved indifference whether the world wants the Obama/Biden New World Order.

Power, Blinken, Rice and the Biden administration thinking they are pulling the world to their side are in fact pushing the world into a corner.

The world is pushing back.

Let alone human beings, even a dog when cornered will fight back tooth and nail.

Last week Putin said the BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa – are currently working on setting up a new global reserve currency.

In other words, as Biden fiddles with useless sanctions and punitive measures, Putin is organizing BRICS to eat our lunches.

I know for a fact America can prevail over all others. For a fact!

America does not need to proselytize and evangelize her way of life, her values and the endurance of her institutions.

The world, as it has always, will beat a path to America when we let America be America.

In the words of the great Langston Hughes (1901-1967):

Let America Be America Again

Let America be America again.
Let it be the dream it used to be.
Let it be the pioneer on the plain
Seeking a home where he himself is free.
(America never was America to me.)

Let America be the dream the dreamers dreamed—
Let it be that great strong land of love
Where never kings connive nor tyrants scheme
That any man be crushed by one above.
(It never was America to me.)

O, let my land be a land where Liberty
Is crowned with no false patriotic wreath,
But opportunity is real, and life is free,
Equality is in the air we breathe.

……

The world will beat a path to America when we let America be America.

To be continued in Part V…
