McCain has it exactly backwards and perfectly exemplifies Establishment views. The US leads today only in being blamed for everything wrong in the world and the assumption that it must pay. It must demonize and impoverish itself for imagined global climate deficiencies stemming from the 1700s and open its borders to millions to take pressure off oppressors and tyrants-Rush Limbaugh

10/17/17, "McCain Spells Out the Swamp’s View of the World," Rush Limbaugh

"RUSH: John McCain has had it in for Donald Trump I don’t know for how long. I think McCain’s had it in for Trump even before Trump ran for president....

He delighted in thumbs down his vote killing the latest attempt to reform Obamacare in the Senate. And now he made a speech. He made a speech, he just blasted nationalism and by extension he blasted Trump, and he’s blasting everything about Trump that people like and support. It was in Philadelphia at the National Constitution Center. McCain was awarded the liberty medal. And here’s a portion of what he said.

MCCAIN: To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century — to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain the last, best hope of earth — for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems —

CROWD: (cheers)

MCCAIN: — is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.

RUSH: Okay. Now, let’s parse this, because there are a lot of people — and you heard the applause — a lot of people who agree with McCain on this. “To fear the world we have organized…” 

This is fascinating to me. McCain clearly is a member of the establishment. He’s a proud member of the establishment. He’s probably on the committee that determines who gets in and who gets thrown out.

He is demonstrating here a perfect illustration for anybody wondering what the establishment is and what they think. McCain has spelled it out for you. “To fear the world we have organized…” 

Now, this stems from the belief that America is great, that America’s the good guys, that America is the solution to the world’s problems, that America is the last best hope of earth.

And “that we have organized” means we, as the beacon of freedom. We, as the nation which fights for it and which defends it and seeks it for anybody who wants it. We have fought our own wars. We have helped other nations in wars where their freedom was at stake. We have rebuilt Europe, the Marshall Plan. All of these things constitute what McCain means when he says “the world we have organized.” This is a profound belief in the power of the United States.

And then he adds, “The world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century.” Believe me, he’s talking about the period of time basically post-depression, World War I, all wait to the end of the twentieth century. “To refuse the obligations of international leadership,” meaning we have shaped the world. We have organized it. We have determined the good and the bad. We lead the fight against bad and evil. We define the good.

But now Trump and his nationalism want to refuse the obligations to continue the leadership role that we gave ourselves in the past 75 years. And to refuse these obligations of international leadership and to refuse our duty (as a result of this leadership) to remain the last, best hope of earth, for the sake of some stupid nationalism like getting rid of NAFTA and putting America first, making America great again? That’s junk stuff to McCain!

There is no making America great. America already is great. What do you mean?...We organized the world. The world is ours, and it bends to our will, and why do we want to abrogate? That’s what McCain thinks, and that’s what the establishment thinks. And then he goes on to say this is “unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans…”

What’s wrong with all this? Theoretically, it’s right on the money. 

But what’s wrong with it all? I mean, the answers kind of leap out at you, don’t they? It’s not any great mystery. The world we have organized? Well, maybe we did, but it’s falling apart, and we haven’t been leading the world in I don’t know what area for however long. We have been led by people who want to diminish the role of the United States in the world, Senator McCain.

This is the problem. What you’re missing, sir, about this nationalism that you despise is its real intention is to once again assert this leadership of the world, to assert this guiding light and beacon of freedom. Because for way too many recent years people in your club have been buying into the notion that whatever the United States has been doing the last 75 years has been hurting people. The United States is the problem.

The United States is blamed for climate change. What is that? Destroying the planet, no less! United States is blamed for this, it’s blamed for that. We have to sit here and listen to how socialist and communists worlds and nations are much preferable to ours. What world do we lead? The United Nations exists to fleece the United States, to blame the United States. Barack Obama openly admitted that his purpose was to transform the United States, which means cut it down to size.

It was Barack Obama who started this process of taking America out of the leadership role, and you couldn’t say enough good things about him, Senator McCain. It was Barack Obama and his two terms — and everybody he hired to work with him — who set about to make Iran a nuclear power. How in the world would a United States-led world permit that to happen, for the good of humanity? Senator McCain, with all due respect, you’ve got this totally backwards.
 
Your club or members in your club were actively presiding over the decline of the United States as a leader in the world, as a beacon of freedom.

Your definition of open and leading the world is to open our borders and let the disadvantaged race in! Sorry. That’s not what leadership of the world means. But too many people think leadership of the world meant we need to act on our guilt. We have guilt that we are so wealthier, so richer, so more advanced than most nations on earth, it isn’t fair, and so we must let the downtrodden in because we’ve made them downtrodden.

That’s what your club has started turning this country into, and that’s why people are standing up against it....

Certainly, in the last 20 years, this is not at all at all what the United States’ role in the world has been, and especially the last eight years, the United States, the purpose was to cut us down to size and make us pay our price....

The United States needs to be reconstituted and rebuilt. We just had too many years of too many people believing that the United States is the problem in the world, that the United States has guilt or should have guilt over the great disparities in the world between ourselves and other nations: economics, wealth, these kinds of things. You look at most of the world’s problems and you’ll find the popular thing to do is blame the United States for it.

Climate change is the first thing on the list. We, our advanced lifestyle, just happens to be doing what? Destroying the planet. That is a serious, serious charge, destroying the planet, and they got all kinds of young people believing it. What’s the fix? The United States must downsize, the United States must admit its guilt, the United States must agree with whatever the United Nations claims and alleges and accuses us of doing.

And we must understand that they’re right and we must admit that they’ve got a grievance and we must do what we can to apologize for the way we have structured the world and the way we have led the world, because we have imposed freedom in too many places. We have imposed and stood up for liberty in too many places, where liberty and freedom are not the choice of tyrants and dictators and other oppressors who lead most other nations on earth....

Senator McCain, the United States is not the last, best hope of earth when, for example, we are forced to open our borders and let specifically the downtrodden into our country without any limit and without any concern. All of that is based on guilt, that somehow we have made them downtrodden, that we have enforced their poverty, that we are the reason they can’t get ahead in life because we have shaped the world in this ill-gotten way.

And so we owe it to the people we have deprived to come to our country and get what’s theirs because we have made sure that they can’t get it. This is what’s guiding immigration policy. Well, that and voter registration, of course. But the last, best hope of the world was being destroyed, was being chipped away. It was being torn down to size where it couldn’t lead anything because Barack Obama was doing everything he could to cement the idea that the problems in the world originated with the United States from the days of our founding.

And all that’s happening today, Senator McCain, is an attempt to bring this country back to these ideals you spoke so lovingly about, what we all want. We all believe the United States is a force or good. We all believe the United States is the beacon of hope and liberty for people in the world. We all believe the United States is the last, best hope. But it was being torn apart, it was being torn down, it was being blamed. And it had help from people inside our own country. And finally enough people have said, “Stop, we’re not the problem in the world. We are the solution.” 

And that’s all that’s happening here. I just think Senator McCain has lost track of what’s been going on the last 30 years and certainly the last eight years....

This nationalism, this populism that’s coming under assault, its real purpose is to once again reassert the United States as the leader of the world and the organizer of liberty and freedom in the world and the defender of liberty and freedom in the world, not to have the United States be seen as responsible for the world’s problems, which is what the swamp currently is constituted as, which is what the American elites, the United Nations, the Ivy League schools are all teaching! That the problems in the world are born of the United States’ dominance and that’s what justifies cutting us down in size."...
