Obama at Bilderberg in 2014 >> 'Ordinary men and women are too small minded to govern their own affairs. Order & progress can only come when individuals SURRENDER THEIR RIGHTS to a sovereign power' submitted by Oh_Well_ian to news

This is FAKE NEWS, an internet hoax.
The actual speech not was not at Bildeberg, but at Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels, Belgium. This is easy to verify.

Larger transcript show OP is twisting the words
Leaders and dignitaries of the European Union; representatives of our NATO Alliance; distinguished guests: We meet here at a moment of testing for Europe and the United States, and for the international order that we have worked for generations to build.
Throughout human history, societies have grappled with fundamental questions of how to organize themselves, the proper relationship between the individual and the state, the best means to resolve inevitable conflicts between states. And it was here in Europe, through centuries of struggle — through war and Enlightenment, repression and revolution — that a particular set of ideals began to emerge: The belief that through conscience and free will, each of us has the right to live as we choose. The belief that power is derived from the consent of the governed, and that laws and institutions should be established to protect that understanding. And those ideas eventually inspired a band of colonialists across an ocean, and they wrote them into the founding documents that still guide America today, including the simple truth that all men — and women — are created equal.
But those ideals have also been tested — here in Europe and around the world. Those ideals have often been threatened by an older, more traditional view of power. This alternative vision argues that ordinary men and women are too small-minded to govern their own affairs, that order and progress can only come when individuals surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign. Often, this alternative vision roots itself in the notion that by virtue of race or faith or ethnicity, some are inherently superior to others, and that individual identity must be defined by “us” versus “them,” or that national greatness must flow not by what a people stand for, but by what they are against.
Considered in their full context, President Obama’s mentions of the phrase ordinary men and women being “too small-minded to govern their own affairs” and order and progress being possible only “when individuals surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign” are clearly references to an old, undesirable form of power, not an expression of President Obama’s viewpoint about how things are or should be in the world today.
so clever editing to tell a lie.
This should not be necessary, surely there is enough legitimate proof against Obama that you don't have to make shit up?

except this has been well debunked. these are not ISIS flags
This is Facebook level Stupid
Images tweeted by local tv station WXYZ included similar weather conditions and the presence of multiple flags (none of which were the sort linked with the Islamic State), demonstrating that this photograph captured an anti-ISIS demonstration in Dearborn, not a pro-ISIS rally
These are local muslims protesting against ISIS
Dearborn Muslims Protested ISIS, and You Can Probably Guess What Happened Next
So, to recap: American Muslims in Dearborn banded together to vocally and visibly protest ISIS, and within a week and a half, parts of the right-wing internet were circulating a photo of this demonstration as proof that American Muslims in Dearborn were openly supporting ISIS.

why didn't they stop them?
Because Republicans wanted every edge to win in November, legitimate or not.
see the briefings given to the congressional leaders end of last summer.
McConnell didn't want to do anything about it. Said it would be met with charges of trying to rig the election.
and there were many other instances of reporting on the russians throughout the election year.

So far Trump is coasting on what Obummer did.
Because congress didn't do anything. We will see what happens as the tax plan goes into effect.
Don't care about the speechifying. Just care about the results.
