Same Ole Chuck

Washington, D.C.

Meet the new globaloney boss, same as the old globaloney boss.

I told all your asses so about Chuck Bagel.  But no, a lot of our people, even people who write for the news and commentary source I link to above, said he secretly on our side because he had something bad to say about Israel a long time ago.

Now I guess the next round of excuses from some of our people will be that the system got to him.  Sure, whatever you say to make yourself feel comfortable.





Concrete Consequences

Palo Alto, California

Thomas Sowell:

Abstract Immigrants

(snip)

Among other facts of life utterly ignored by many advocates of de facto amnesty is that the free international movement of people is different from free international trade in goods.

Buying cars or cameras from other countries is not the same as admitting people from those countries or any other countries. Unlike inanimate objects, people have cultures and not all cultures are compatible with the culture in this country that has produced such benefits for the American people for so long.

This is a good column with some cogent points, until it gets to this point.

In the abstract world, it is possible to have differing policies on immigration and foreign trade, i.e. the former being restricted but the latter being open, or vice versa.  However, here in the real concrete world, unrestricted immigration, free trade and world government are all interrelated concepts.  If you adopt one, there will inevitably be pressure on your society and body politic to adopt the other two, and likewise, if you want to restrict either immigration or foreign trade or oppose world government, then you’ll be philosophically forced to take the restrictionist-particularist position on the other two questions.

 





Biden World Order

8 04 2013

Washington, D.C.

If it were only up to a goofball like Biden, I wouldn’t be so scared.  I could only wish that it was all up to him, because beating back the NWO would then be as easy as stealing candy from a baby.  It’s the forces and interests behind the scenes pulling the strings of politicians that scare me.

But this isn’t the first time Biden has popped off about New World Order (aka a formal global government).  In June 1992, he delivered a major Senate speech entitled, “On the Threshold of a New World Order, An American Agenda for the New World Order, Fulfilling the Wilsonian Vision.”  In it, he agreed with then-President Bush (41) about the need for global government, as Bush formally called for it the previous September, but was upset that Bush wasn’t pushing for it quickly enough or enthusiastically enough.  So Biden basically said, “I’m a traitor.  Bush is a traitor.  I agree with him being a traitor.  But his problem is that he’s not enough of a traitor, whereas I would be a more treasonous traitor than he is.”





Barbie World

New York

Ordinarily, I would react to this “news” by saying that not only do too many people have too much self-esteem, but also that too many people view the self-esteem of individuals and groups as a cure all.

However, she may have a point here.  Any world populated with people dumb enough to turn Lady Gag into a celebrity has a big problem with self-esteem.





Ahmadinejad 41

26 09 2012

UN

Mahmoud the Nutty calls for a “new world order.”

George H.W. Bush is Bush 41, George W. Bush is Bush 43, Obama is Bush 44, so I guess Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is Bush 45.

Also, the AP article has been truncated now, but the original stated that Tehran wanted the world to end sanctions against Iran so that it can have access to the “international banking system.”  Which means they want to operate within the “Zionist” system they claim to hate.





Border Jumpers

United Nations

Today’s UN:  Not concerned about people sneaking across borders, but is concerned about guns sneaking across borders.

Latter can’t happen without former.





Dear Trent Lott: Get LOST

23 05 2012

He once opposed LOST.  That was back in the day, when he had voters and constituents that he had to be accountable to once every six years.

It’s amazing how much retirement and a big bag of money can make a man change his mind.

This is why a lot of foreign policy establishmentarians lost their shit over Richard Lugar being defeated.  It all has to do with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee — He would have run it assuming both his win and Republicans taking control.  With him gone, and still assuming Republican control, we’ll get a SFRC Chairman who will use LOST as a butt warmer.





Tony Blur Hoisted On His Own Petard

Former British PM heckled in Maine college speech

WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — A handful of protesters briefly interrupted a Maine college graduation speech by British Prime Minister Tony Blair calling for world unity.

Blair addressed more than 400 Colby College graduates and their guests Sunday morning at the school’s 191st commencement in Waterville.

Police say the protesters shouted phrases such as “warmonger” and “war criminal” during Blair’s speech. One person was arrested.

I fail to see any real ideological difference between the speaker and the people protesting him.





Islam vs Freedom of Conscience

21 12 2011

Guess whose side Obama is on.

They keep telling us he’s not a Muslim, and he’s probably not.  But every time you turn around, he’s sticking up for Islam.

On the other side of the ledger, who is the only Republican Presidential candidate who wants us out of the UN post haste?  Oh yeah.





Because They Worked Out So Well in Kigali and Darfur…

There are calls to bring UN “peacekedpers” (i.e. easy unarmed pickings for Mexican drug gangs) to Juarez.





Hussein Obama, WTF? Rush Limbaugh, WTF?

4 06 2009

President Barack Hussein Obama II told the throng in Cairo, Egypt gathered to see him that one of the reasons his country is so horrible and the Muslim world is so superior is that there have already been several women heads of state of Muslim countries, unlike the United States of America.

WTF?  Does anybody even remember last year at this time?  It seems to me that we were about to get a woman President, but there was a really thick tinted glass ceiling above her head.

I just got done listening to today’s Rush Hudson Limbaugh III show, recorded on my CCWitness thigamajig, which, BTW, is now fifty clams cheaper than when I bought it late last year, damn it.  In his first hour, he was denouncing Hussein for all the “world order” globaloney he presented in his Cairo speech, and said that it meant the sacrifice of American sovereignty and liberty.

WTF?  Does anybody even remember the mid-to-late 1990s?  It seems to me that there were a lot of right wingers opposing “world order” globaloney because it would destroy American sovereignty and liberty, but a certain talk radio host were denouncing them as “kooks” and “nuts.”





Velvet Glove of Nationalism? Or Iron Fist of Globalism?

12 04 2009

The Late Great Bard wrote in April 1992:

Having now perfected the manipulative arts to global scale, it is in the process of extending its dominion to the entire world, actually disengaging from its territorial base in the nation-state and constructing a transnational apparatus of power by which nations and their populations, resources, and cultures can be managed.  There is a good deal of talk about how computers and other post-industrial technologies will lead to a radical decentralization of organizations.  Don’t bet on it.  The technology works both ways.  It can be used to promote decentralization, but it also lends itself to tighter control from the center.  Human nature seems to prefer more power and less responsibility, and my own bet is that post-industrial technologies will accommodate that preference.

Sam would have applauded Evgeny Morozov.  It’s a long read, but a Francisian read nonetheless.

If taken together, Morozov’s points and Sam’s points could lead to the following questions and conclusions:

(1)  Why are we to assume that if you give everyone in China and everyone in Egypt broadband internet access that eventually both China and Egypt would become the archetypes of Jeffersonaian secular democratic republicanism?  To put it another way, ubiquitous internet won’t change the antlike sociology of the Chinese or the ignorant religious fanaticism of the Egyptians.  It might make their dictatorships worse in their respective regards.

The idea that the internet will ameliorate dictatorships and despots is based on the same progressive-left mindset that contends that American blacks tend toward the criminal because they are in bad environments, therefore move them to white suburbs and/or bus their children to white suburban schools, and they’ll start to behave.  Likewise, everyone having internet in China and Egypt is that “better environment” in the minds of progressives.  You see how well that worked with American blacks, it spread their folkways and sociology to the suburbs.  In China and Egypt, the internet might well enhance the power of the central states and the radical Imams, respectively.

(2)  Sam never made this point, but I’m sure he would have agreed with it.  Morozov’s point about political self-selection and self-confederation is sort of the same point I read several years ago.  Things other than the internet are going to make you right wing, left wing, or something in between, or something not even on the linear spectrum.  All the internet does is give you an opportunity to congregate with your own kind.  Many people will wind up being more extreme versions of their own selves as they spend all of their lives chatting with people of like mind, and rarely if ever with those of other mindsets, and what little time that happens, it devolves into arguing, name-calling and bromide parroting.

Also, the internet means that many people do not have to be in any one particular place to make a living.  Therefore, they migrate to those of like political mind.  This has resulted in places like Boulder, Colorado, which has always been a left wing town thanks to the University of Colorado.  This attracted left wingers to move in, that made Boulder even more liberal.  That attracted even crazier liberals, which made Boulder even crazier liberal, and that attracted crazier still liberals…you see where this is going.

(3)  Barack Obama succeeded on the internet, but Howard Dean failed.  The Ukrainian Orange Revolution of several years ago succeeded on the internet, but the democratization of China is failing.  That Obama and the Orange Revolution succeeded on the internet isn’t to the internet’s credit, and that Dean and China failed isn’t the fault of the internet.  Because the internet is just a tool, if you’re going to win or lose, you’re going to win or lose based on other, and more time honored factors.  Any good movement needs an internet presence, but it alone won’t carry the day.  And backing up to Sam’s point from 1992, if various nationalisms succeed (i.e. to resist the trend of globalization), it won’t be because or in spite of the internet, it will be due to the civilization-old call to blood and soil.





Global Metrics

3 04 2009

Schalfly:

Will the Real Secretary Geithner Please Stand Up?

Does Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner favor replacing the U.S. dollar with a global currency, or doesn’t he? Or, as Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) pointedly asked on Sean Hannity’s program, “Which Tim Geithner do we believe?”

It hit me like a ton of bricks last night, trying to figure out why the American establishment wants a global currency.  It would eliminate the need for currency conversions and exchange rates between existing national currencies, thereby making it easier in a bureaucratic sense and in the realm of the language of business to outsource jobs to Bangalore or China.  Similarly, American big business is all for America switching to the metric system, because it would make global business easier for them.





The Gravitas Pick, Who Wants to Put America into a Grave

23 08 2008

I wanted Obama to pick the most repulsive black congress(wo)man, such as Sheila Jackson Lee.  I thought there was an outside chance that he would have picked Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, not only for racial reasons, but the fact that they have David Axelrod in common, and that Obama and Patrick have life histories that cross-pollinate in a few ways.

However, if he was going to pick a white man, I’m glad he picked this one.  Joe Biden, according to CW, provides for Obama what Dick Cheney did for George W. Bush in 2000, and that is, as the media said in 2000, a sense of “gravitas,” adding experience and seriousness to the ticket.

But it also creates a little bit of a tar baby for the Obama campaign.  Obama’s big centeripiece, from the Primaries on, has been opposition to the invasion of Iraq.  Biden supported it initially, votes for funding the occupation of Iraq time after time, and wasn’t exactly hostile to the “Surge” of last year.  Obama is also creating the fiction that he’s against free trade, while Biden has a mixed record on the issue.

What Joe Biden is is an unrepentant stone-cold globalist.  In June 1992, he delivered a major speech in front of the U.S. Senate, entitled “On the Threshold of a New World Order, An American Agenda for the New World Order, Fulfilling the Wilsonian Vision.”  I can’t find it anywhere on the Internet, but I have a printed version.  In it, Biden agrees with then-President George H.W. Bush that the dissolution of the United States of America into a global state and global economy is desirable and feasible, but takes President Bush 41 to task for not doing it quickly enough.

This might be why Obama picked Biden.  They might have some disagreements, but they’re both good Citizens of the World.

Comical

3 01 2008

WND:

Tens of thousands of children in public schools across America soon could be getting a free comic book, one that extols the virtues of the United Nations and its agenda through the words of a kids’ hero, Spider-Man.

(snip)

Sciora specifically said the project is to target school-aged children with the message of the U.N.

“These comics, featuring favorite Marvel characters such as Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four, will … tell the story of how the United Nations fights the challenges of poverty, disease, and conflict worldwide,” the U.N. announcement said.

So, they need a comic figure to extol the virtues of the UN and the way it works?  Try Dagwood Bumstead.





Cheney: There’s No Such Thing as a NAFTA Superhighway, But There Were WMDs in Iraq.

30 07 2007

WND has it.

If the NAFTA Superhighways, the North American Union and the Security and Prosperity Partnership isn’t a problem, then why has:

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a GOP presidential candidate, introduced an amendment to H.R. 3074, the Transportation Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2008, prohibiting the use of federal funds for participating in working groups under the Security and Prosperity Partnership, including the creation of NAFTA Superhighways.

On July 24, Hunter’s amendment passed 362 to 63, with strong bipartisan support. Later, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3074 by a margin of 268-153. The bill has been sent to the Senate with Hunter’s amendment included.

Someone who seriously thinks he can become President of the United States isn’t going to waste time and parliamentary maneuvers over a baseless conspiracy theory, and 83% of the members of the U.S. House wouldn’t vote to prevent something that is a figment of somebody’s imagination.

As an aside, I think: (1) Saddam Hussein did have WMDs, (2) Was working on more, (3) Pawned them off on another country because he knew Yankee was about to march in, as there was more than a year of debate on the Iraq invasion before the invasion actually happened, (4) The American government knows this, but the truth of the matter is too insensitive and too much a hot potato, and would somehow damage foreign relations too much, i.e. whatever country is hiding Iraq’s pre-invasion WMDs somehow has us over a barrel, so Uncle Sam would rather have people think that there were “intelligence failures,” making the CIA look foolish, instead of the truth, and (5) Even with all this, that was not a justification to invade Iraq.





Beyond the Ls and the Cs

26 07 2007

WND:

Former Sen. Fred Thompson, a Republican presidential candidate in waiting, candidly answered a question at a campaign stop in Texas yesterday regarding his membership in the Council on Foreign Relations, sometimes referred to as a “shadow government” organization of elites with a global agenda.

(snip)

There are several conservatives over the years who have been members of the Council on Foreign Relations. I try to learn as much as I can from all viewpoints.

I agree with that part, there are self-styled liberals and conservatives, and both partisan Republicans and Democrats, and a lot of moderates, independents and some overtly non-partisan, non-ideological and non-political individuals that have belonged to the CFR in the past and do today.

The problem with the CFR is not that it is or is not “liberal,” “conservative” or anything else. It’s a fundamental fault line between nationalism and internationalism, with CFR members almost universally favoring and promoting the latter.





This is the Last Place I Would Have Expected Such a Bill to Originate

5 07 2007

Minnesota now requires all American flags in the state to be American-made. Isn’t this the same Nordic/Scandinavian politically correct racial egalitarian “we are the world” bunch of libs that has produced politicians like Hubert Humphrey, who boasted that he and his lib friends in the Senate were going to make white Southerners eat integration?

All of a sudden, they’re discovering nationalism.

Note to Minnesotans: Shop here to comply with your state’ s law.





Not On Their Radar Screen

20 06 2007

Canadian conservatives are getting ready to protest the third summit of the “Security and Prosperity Partnership,” a precursor to the North American Union, which would be a formal merging of the political structures of the USA, Canada and Mexico. This summit is scheduled for Montebello, Quebec, in August.

Question: Where are the anarchists and other assorted far-left goobers? Especially considering the way they show off to protest other globalization meetings and summits, starting in Seattle in 1999 and extending to the present, and considering that they are stronger in Canada than they are here (ask Jared Taylor), one would think they would be all over this.

As far as I can discern, not only do they not seem to want to pound Montebello’s pavement in consternation of the SPP/NAU, they don’t even seem to have the NAU as an issue of angst on their radar screen, even though it’s representative of the same kind of globalization they supposedly dislike.

Because the NAU would essentially mean legalized open borders between the USA and Mexico, I think I have already explained the contradiction.





Responsibility is a Two-Way Street

29 05 2007

HRC can’t get the damned village off her mind.

AP:

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Presidential hopefulHillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it’s time to replace an “on your own” society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.

The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an “ownership society” really is an “on your own” society that has widened the gap between rich and poor.

Trouble is, “shared responsibility and prosperity,” taken literally, is a two way street. Certain people and groups “share” in the “prosperity” in that they do a lot of taking and not much giving. Though I doubt that her phrase is meant to be taken literally, it’s meant as code words for more indiscriminate social welfare spending.

That means pairing growth with fairness, she said, to ensure that the middle-class succeeds in the global economy, not just corporate CEOs.

Except the Senate Amnesty bill, which she will probably vote for, will ensure that corporate CEOs succeed in the global economy, not the middle-class.

Another thing I have to keep repeating is that the working middle-class cannot possibly succeed or thrive if the economy is global, because globalization is a construct of the economic elite to eviscerate all economic classes between dirt poor and filthy rich, mainly to benefit the filthy rich.





You Live By the Globalization Sword, You Die By the Globalization Sword

13 05 2007

If you live in a major metropolitan area, and your civic boosters and MPO executives are talking about your city becoming a “world city,” it’s time to cringe. For once the “world” finds better things to do, your city won’t be much of a city anymore.

The UK Telegraph has this feature that speculates that New York City could go the way of pre-Columbian Venice, in that what was an important “world city” became an also-ran due to changes in trade, technology and commerce.

The logic is obvious. A city is, and should be rooted, in a particular people and a particular place. Once a city decides to become a “world city,” then the city is at the whims of the world, and without preference to blood or soil, both they and their city will tend to disappear.





Bush to America: Get LOST

13 05 2007

W. is trying another push (or is that putsch?) to get the Senate to ratify the UN Law of the Sea Treaty. If it passes, it would essentially give the United Nations territorial authority over ocean-faring commerce, and it would probably give the UN direct taxing authority beyond the willing contributions of member states.

Direct taxation and a direct standing military are the only two things that separate the UN from being a genuine world government.





What Happened to the Great Marxist?

1 05 2007

Hugo Chavez withdraws Venezuela from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Looks like Good Ole H is going nationalist on us.

Now all he needs to do is withdraw from anything that starts with “UN,” and I’ll write him and ask him to run for the Republican nomination for American President.





The Cops Are Good Enough

12 04 2007

UN wants to recruit NYPD officers for UN peacekeeping efforts.

New York cops are good enough, by and large, but the rules of engagement placed on them by politically correct chiefs, administration and city politicians is what makes them ineffective. I wouldn’t imagine that Big Evil Blue would give them any more free reign in places like Darfur or Haiti.





Now We Know Where To Look Should Another 9/11 Happen

11 04 2007

The Canadian:

Robert Pastor, a leading intellectual force in the move to create a North American Union, told WND he believes a new 9/11 crisis could be the catalyst to merge the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

Mr. Pastor, a professor at American University, says that in such a case the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, or SPP – launched in 2005 by the heads of the three countries at a summit in Waco, Texas – could be developed into a continental union, complete with a new currency, “the Amero”, that would replace the U.S. dollar just as the euro has replaced the national currencies of Europe.

In May 2005, Pastor was co-chairman the Council on Foreign Relations task force that produced a report entitled “Toward a North American Community,” which he has claimed is the blueprint behind the SSP declared by President Bush, Mexico’s then-President Vicente Fox, and Canada’s then-Prime Minister Paul Martin.

At American University in Washington, D.C., Pastor directs the Center for North American Studies where he teaches a course entitled “North America: A Union, A Community, or Just Three Nations?” As WND previously has reported, Pastor is on the board of the North American Forum on Integration, the NAFI, a non-profit organization that annually holds a mock trilateral parliament for 100 selected students drawn from 10 universities in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The concept of trusting our security to a banana republic narco-state like Mexico is laughable.





Haiti’s UN-Supervised “Gun Buyback” Program a Flop

10 04 2007

Understatement of the year.

The program is said to “demobilize” black gangsters and “reintegrate” them, as that latter word is used several times in the article. The downside is that Haiti had to become a UN colony in all essence.

What, pray tell, are they to be “reintegrated” into? The point is to get them out of the gangs. I suppose they’re to be “reintegrated” into the same Haitian gutter which bred the gang activity to begin with. Don’t try and teach a pig to whistle.





Global Action For Me, But Not For Thee

3 03 2007

AP:

A 16-year-old Nepalese girl burst into tears describing her work in a match factory to help support her mother. A Jordanian teen spoke out about violence against girls in rural areas. A former child soldier from Congo cried when she recalled her suffering as a sex slave.

The three are among more than 200 young people attending a high-level meeting of the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women, which this year is focusing on discrimination and violence against girls. They spoke at a panel and a news conference about issues that concern them, ranging from rape, trafficking and prostitution to education, child labor and AIDS.

These girls’ testimony will be all for naught. The UN is dominated by third world dictators who benefit from these kinds of social ills. But white left-wing feminists will use this to get the white world to enact “global” treaties that will impose the feminazi agenda on white countries and peoples.





True To Her Reputation

Angelina “CFR” Jolie is trolling Vietnam to adopt a child. She probably didn’t go to Malawi because Madonna has cornered that market.





The (Im)Potency of Treaties

27 02 2007

Schlafly:

Our Senators are taunted with the assertion that the United States should be embarrassed because 185 countries have ratified CEDAW, while we have not. I’m glad the Senate so far has had the good sense to reject a treaty that fraudulently makes naive people believe it will improve the lot of American women.

Pakistan has ratified CEDAW. That’s the country where a tribal council ordered a young woman gang-raped to avenge her brother’s crime of being seen with an unchaperoned woman from another tribe. Gang rape is common in Pakistan.

Nigeria has ratified CEDAW. That’s a country where women are stoned to death for the crime of adultery. Islamic law, called Shariah, calls for death to women who commit adultery, but a lesser punishment for adulterous men.

Saudi Arabia has ratified CEDAW. That’s the country where 14 girls died inside a Mecca school that went up in flames. Religious police kept rescuers from entering the building because some of the girls were not wearing their head coverings.

Colombia has ratified CEDAW. That’s a country where thousands of women a year are sold into sex slavery. Similar outrages take place in India, Nepal and Thailand, which have also ratified CEDAW.

Phyllis Schlafly is right. Domestic left-wingers love international treaties, not because it will really cure Chinese pollution or Pakistani misogyny, but because they will further advance the left-wing agenda in white countries (which is really all they care about), in ways that would not be possible through mutual public concurrence or the legislative process. This is similar to the liberal infatuation with an activist judiciary.





Angelina Jolie Invited to Join the Treason Lobby

26 02 2007

But Brad Pitt isn’t going to get to join the Council on Foreign Relations.

There’s why Jolie was invited — I suppose CFR members can’t afford the little blue pills anymore.
