The Obama visit to Communist Cuba infuriated and dismayed victims of government oppression around the world while encouraging the violent extremism of bloodthirsty dictatorships everywhere. But maybe that was the point. In a pathetic spectacle, Obama appeared to be groveling before the mass-murdering regime that once pointed nuclear missiles at the American people and continues to export terrorism and tyranny. Obama praised the autocracy enslaving Cuba, too, and even parroted dictator Raul Castro's lies and his communist distortion of the concept of rights.

In addition to imposing an expanded transnational regulatory and judicial regime that would further erode U.S. national sovereignty and self-government, the controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) would give Big Business cronies even more power over U.S. and European Union policy. If approved, it would also allow the European Union to meddle in U.S. governance, and vice versa.

As politicians prop open their countries’ borders and throw out welcome mats to mainly Muslim refugees, the negative consequences are becoming apparent to all.

EU officials are responding to the latest terrorist attack in typical fashion: denying that their migration policies are responsible and calling for more police state measures and loss of liberty for citizens.

Even as EU bureaucrats try to stop any attempts to control immigrants at borders, they say an EU military must be formed to control borders. All their “solutions” expand government.
