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?

But he was also the gate keeper balancing immigration.
With him gone the flood of migrants surged into Europe unimpaired. France fucked themselves on that one.
One of the over 3,000 new Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department on 2016 New Year’s Eve, contain damning evidence of Western nations using NATO as a tool to topple Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi. The NATO overthrow was not for the protection of the people, but instead it was to thwart Gaddafi’s attempt to create a gold-backed African currency to compete with the Western central banking monopoly.
The April 2011 email, sent to the Secretary of State Hillary by unofficial adviser and longtime Clinton confidante Sidney Blumenthal with the subject line “France’s client and Qaddafi’s gold,” reveals predatory Western intentions.
The emails indicate the French-led NATO military initiative in Libya was also driven by a desire to gain access to a greater share of Libyan oil production, and to undermine a long term plan by Gaddafi to supplant France as the dominant power in the Francophone Africa region.
The email provides a peek behind the curtain to reveal how foreign policy is often carried out in practice. While reported in the media that the Western backed Libyan military intervention is necessary to save human lives, the real driving factor behind the intervention was shown to be the fact that Gaddafi planned to create a high degree of economic independence with a new pan-African currency, which would lessen French influence and power in the region.
The evidence indicates that when French intelligence became aware of the Libyan initiative to create a currency to compete with (and ultimately independent of) the Western central banking system, the decision to subvert the plan through military means began, ultimately including the NATO alliance.
the obvious profit motive is to keep third world countries in their place.
Gaddafi paid the price.
and a similar fate awaited Saddam Hussein, who wanted to Iraq off the American dollar and onto a more independent system.
but of course, America Knows Best, and all the rest, is a popular political line

“It is with pride I tell you tonight we will rebuild this cathedral,” "and we will rebuild Notre Dame because it is what the French expect of us, it is what our history deserves, it is, in the deepest sense, our destiny.”
France 24 video of the announcement
He used the word cathedral frequently, did not avoid it at all.

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.
