The issues that separate the two candidates in the 2016 presidential election – now just three weeks away – are more than typical Democrat-Republican differences or even liberal-conservative differences.
From immigration and trade to abortion and national security, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump seem light years apart, almost like they’re from different political planets.
That’s because, according to an expert on globalism, they approach every issue from an opposite perspective – one, Clinton, is globalist, while the other, Trump, is anti-globalist.
Clinton, in the latest Wikileaks data dump, had one of her speeches to Wall Street execs exposed in which she said: “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”

Wallace Henley is one man who has studied globalism from the inside out and on many levels.
He worked at the highest levels of government in the Nixon White House and later went into the ministry and studied globalism from a biblical perspective. He now serves as senior associate pastor of 2nd Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, and was interviewed by Jamie Glazov of the Glazov Gang about globalism under the title “Is Globalism Demonic?”

But there’s a “philosophical globalism” marked by the push for a shared value system and global governance, which Henley finds more concerning.
“This is what really got my attention. In the 1990s the United Nations began a push for global shared values,” he said.
This is seen in the a push by USESCO and other U.N. agencies to
