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 at Northeastern University, 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. “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.”

“So I think that everything that we’ve lived and learn tells us that we will never come out on top if we accept advice from sound-bite salesmen and carnival barkers who pretend the most powerful country on Earth can remain great by looking inward,” Kerry added. “And hiding behind walls at a time that technology has made that impossible to do and unwise to even attempt.”

Straw man argument, anyone?

I actually agree with John Kerry for once.

I thought the wall was to keep people from entering the country illegally - anyone! not necessarily terrorists.

If the world is borderless, why would he object to Chinese troops invading and taking over Taiwan or islands near Vietnam?

The border between Canada and US was becoming very easy to cross, with promises of even more streamlining, before 911.
The irony is that as socialism becomes more prominent in Western countries, it is only borders that make that kind of system economically viable.Socialism is funded by people paying forward. Without borders, immigrants can enter into a system without paying at all.

That is generally why immigration has been limited and rationalized to filter the crowd to be made up mainly of people who are capable of paying forward.

Socialism will not be possible in a country without borders, where people can stream across to a land of benefits that they have not been paying for, and will never have the capacity to pay for.

True. I suspect that he has a fence around his property as well.


good point! and he even might live in a gated community!

Sounds like Kerry doesnt even agree with the border fence and patrols that are in place now!

Kerry is just showboating. a borderless world is a ridiculous concept that everyone knows would be unworkable.

I’ll leave it to you, CAF posters, to figure it out. Good luck.

His home probably IS a gated community. :slight_smile:

As a matter of trivia, I saw his home in Boston. I don’t recall if there was a fence around it because it was dark. I want to say no, because it was the end of row-homes, but I simply don’t remember. It was certainly in prime real estate.

You have to specify which home you are talking about.

He probably wouldn’t.

That’s true. I have no clue how many homes he has. I only know about the one. I vaguely feel this topic has come up before.

The New York Times had a long article about the fact that Kerry’s house has several armed guards around it. Also that they keep the motors running always, just in case of what it didn’t say.

If American’s knew the truth I would venture that all politicians and celebrities have armed guards at their homes, but tell us we don’t need guns etc. for protection. They also send their children to private schools and expect us to send our children to many schools that are terrible.

God Bless


Respectfully, I think you are wrong if you believe that.

This has been in the planning stages for a long time now. It goes back to before GW Bush, but he was the first President to publicly talk about the New World Order (NWO) that was coming. The Eurozone was just the beginning of the globalists dream, and by and large it is working for the powers that be. They have pretty much done away with border problems and countries individual sovereignties and they have national health care and their own monetary system, the Euro, all great ways to control the masses.

Next up is the North American Union, a Euro style merging of Mexico, Canada, and the US, featuring no borders, no individual sovereignty and it’s own currency, the Amero. Hence the porous southern border, which our government claims they can’t seal, even though we send our army around the world to seal other countries borders all the time.

If you believe all of what we have seen, and are soon to see, “just happened”, I will tell you that you are wrong. There are very big people planning and shaping what the world is going to look like in the future…

Yes, great post.

Plus these things are being done in such a way, almost methodical, that many people dont even recognize whats happening!!

That day when it all becomes apparent, and things get out of control, these people are going to be standing around totally shocked…and wonder what happened, why did they not see this coming? lol

There are very big people planning and shaping what the world is going to look like in the future…

Yes globalizing the world without fences US democracy style or something other not clearly defined which the elite don’t think we are intelligent enough to hear. Kerry and the Obama administration habit of thinking they are smarter than everyone else and act as such, very much in style with Hillary. In fact articles have been written on it. They talk nonsense imho, globalization in there mind is calling Syria, Egypt, Libya, Ukraine Iraq and Afghanistan victory. Fantastical nonsense is all that is. They can’t even clarify their principle of equal rights in the US imho. Its a far stretch of the imagination they think they can spread their ideology globally.
