The August Review
January 10, 2009
In economic and financial desperation, leaders around the globe are openly calling for the creation of a "New World Order," including prominent "old guard" members of the Trilateral Commission. Is the baby about to be born?
The return of the Trilateral undead
It’s not accidental that so many of the original members of the Trilateral Commission, all of whom are now well into their 80’s, have returned to dance in the limelight once again.
TC Members like Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Paul Volker and Brent Scowcroft, for instance.
On January 5, 2009, Henry Kissinger was interviewed by CNBC on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. His voice still raspy and spoken with a thick accent, he responded to a question about President-elect Obama’s first actions as President:
"he can give new impetus to American foreign policy … I think that his task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period, when really a ‘new world order’ can be created. It’s a great opportunity. It isn’t such a crisis."
While the rest of the country slips into depression and financial collapse, to Kissinger "it isn’t such a crisis."
And, of course it isn’t — for him.
Kissinger has been patiently waiting since at least 1973 for his New World Order egg to hatch.
And remember, in July 1971, Kissinger was the very first diplomat (under Nixon) to visit Communist China in order to open up trade relations with that brutal dictatorship. Oh, and that was an absolutely top-secret trip.
The Trilateral Commission was founded in 1973 to create a "New International Economic Order." George H.W. Bush, also a Trilateral, later spoke of inaugurating a "New World Order." Hence, in Trilateral literature, the two terms have been synonymous ever since. (see The Trilateral Commission: Usurping Sovereignty)
Kissinger earlier praised Obama’s picks for economic recovery, and why not?
Obama picked Trilateral Commission wonder boy Timothy Geithner to be Secretary of the Treasury. The rest of the team are protégés of Robert Rubin, also a Trilateral and former Treasury Secretary under Clinton.
Obama’s top foreign policy advisor has been Zbigniew Brzezinski, the co-founder of the Trilateral Commission with David Rockefeller.
In 1974, Brzezinski stated,
"We need to change the international system for a global system in which new, active and creative forces recently developed - should be integrated. This system needs to include Japan. Brazil, the oil producing countries, and even the USSR, to the extent which the Soviet Union is willing to participate in a global system… the reality of our times is that a modern society such as the U.S. needs a central coordinating and renovating organ which cannot be made up of six hundred people..”
For the uninitiated, "six hundred people" refers to Congress: Replace it with a Socialist/Communist central coordinating organ.
The call in Europe
Sarkozy (France), Merkel (Germany) and Blair (Great Britain) are all calling for a New World Order.
On January 7, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said that "In the 21st century, there it is no longer a single nation who can say what we should do or what we should think."
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that the world "cannot continue as it is."
Both Tony Blair and the current British PM Gordon Brown have repeatedly called for a New World Order for many years, but their cries are intensified.
Interestingly, when President-elect Obama delivered a speech in 2008 to hundreds of thousands in Germany, he stated,
Tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen — a proud citizen of the United States, and a fellow citizen of the world.”
The media hailed Obama for his vision of America and the New World Order.
Sampling of the global press
Indeed, the chorus for a New World Order is being heard around the world.
- Africa: Time for a new world order
- Australia: We need a new world health order
- Canada: A new world order rising?
- China: Hu urges revamp of finance system
- India: Plotting India’s route in the new world order
- Japan: New financial order will emerge from crisis
- Malaysia: Groups to call for new world order
- Quatar: Islam to emerge as the new world order
A crisis made to order?
Dr. Robert A. Pastor, the principal visionary of the North American Union, stated in 2007,
"What I’m saying is that a crisis is an event which can force democratic governments to make difficult decisions like those that will be required to create a North American Community," he said. "It’s not that I want another 9/11 crisis, but having a crisis would force decisions that otherwise might not get made."
So, now we have the mother of all crises and on a global scale at that: Financial, political, religious (remember Islam?).
And socialistic solutions are being railroaded through on a daily basis.
If the New World Order baby is about to be delivered, wouldn’t you expect the fathers (Kissinger, Brzezinski, Scowcroft, Volker, Rockefeller, et al) to show up and pace the floor?
Everybody figures that these guys are just crusty and harmless old men, but I will guarantee that when the baby is finally born the screaming will begin.
