THE DISARMAMENT OF AMERICA

During his tenure as Council on Foreign Relations chairman, Power Elite agent John J. McCloy in 1956 had written: “In my view we must be ready to consider the most far-reaching proposals, including those for total disarmament, universal, enforceable and complete with international controls and inspection.” Because of this viewpoint, President-elect John Kennedy on January 2, 1961, designated McCloy as his principal disarmament advisor and negotiator. Nine months later, Kennedy on September 25, 1961, addressed the UN General Assembly, proclaiming: “Let us join in dismantling the national capacity to wage war…. The program to be presented to this assembly is for general and complete disarmament.”
Rhodes scholar, Trilateralist and CFR member Richard Gardner in the CFR’s Foreign Affairs (April 1974) wrote that to achieve the “house of world order,” an “end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.” This was three after Norman Cousins along with UN Secretary-General U Thant and leading New Ager Donald Keys had founded Planetary Citizens. This organization was affiliated with Planetary Initiative for the World We Choose, which in 1983 held a Congress criticizing “myopic and narrow nationalism” and an “outmoded sense of national sovereignty.” Instead, the Congress advocated disarmament along with a global system of law, the establishment of a permanent world peacekeeping corps and compulsory arbitration service, the promotion of a New International Economic Order, expanded exchange programs, “transformative and teamwork-based education” (like Outcome-Based Education today), and “the moral and ethical values of a New Age.”
On March 20, 1985, Grenville Clark was honored on a 39 cent U.S. postage stamp, and it seems that his and WAPWG’s plans were pursued under President George H.W. Bush (with his New World Order) and President Clinton. In 1992, Richard Gardner, mentioned earlier, was an advisor on UN matters to Bill Clinton during his presidential campaign, after which President Clinton appointed him Ambassador to Spain. Also during Clinton’s presidential campaign, fellow Rhodes scholar, Trilaterialist and CFR Director Strobe Talbott in Time (July 20, 1992) wrote that “Perhaps national sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all…. But it has taken the events in our own wondrous and terrible century to clinch the case for world government.” For this article, Talbott was given the World Federalist Association’s first Norman Cousins Global Governance Award. Cousins had been a president of the WFA (successor to Grenville Clark’s United World Federalists) who had said, “World government is coming, in fact, it is inevitable.” And on June 22, 1993, President Clinton wrote a letter to the WFA stating: “Norman Cousins worked for world peace and world government…. Strobe Talbott… will be a worthy recipient of the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award. Best Wishes… for future success.”
In 1995, through the military chain of command, President Clinton ordered U.S. soldiers going to Macedonia (Yugoslavia) to wear the UN insignia over their American uniforms. However, Army Specialist Michael New refused, saying that he took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution but he had not taken an oath to the UN. In 1996, Congress passed the eleventh straight year of declining defense budgets. After adjusting for inflation, President Clinton’s 1996 budget request ($10.2 billion less than the previous year) was about 40% less than in 1985, and many more military bases were closed.
Non-military disarmament was also favored by the Clinton administration. Nationally syndicated columnist (and psychiatrist) Charles Krauthammer in “Civilized Society Must Disarm Its Citizenry” (The Detroit News, April 9, 1996) wrote: “Ultimately, a civilized society must disarm its citizenry…. Passing a law like the assault weapons ban is a symbolic—purely symbolic—move in that direction. Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation.” In 2000, Justice Department officials Seth Waxman and Ronnie Edelman wrote separate letters indicating the Second Amendment Constitutional right to bear arms only applied to well-regulated militias and not to individuals. This was after Deputy Attorney-General Eric Holder on ABC’s “This Week” (May 2, 1999) proclaimed that the Second Amendment “talks about bearing guns in a well-regulated militia. And I don’t think anywhere it talks about an individual.” It should be remembered here that Eric Holder would be chosen by President Obama to be U.S. Attorney-General and is currently in that position.
In 2001, author William Grigg wrote Global Gun Grab: The United Nations Campaign To Disarm Americans, in which he explained that Americans “who expect an apocalyptic by blue-helmeted UN troops are fixating on the wrong threat. A much more plausible scenario is that UN civilian disarmament policies would be enforced by Americans against Americans.” He also warned that “the chief impact that the UN will have upon American institutions and policies will come in the form of ‘harmonization’—meaning that our laws and governmental policies will be adjusted to conform with our nation’s supposed ‘international obligation’ as defined in UN treaties and conventions,” and the greatest threat “comes not from the UN itself but from American institutions that are being corrupted and placed at the service of the UN’s agenda—particularly the U.S. military and our law enforcement agencies.”
If we do not resist the New World Order’s Socialist World Government, what life will be like can be seen in the movie Ben-Hur. In this movie, Judah Ben-Hur (a religious fundamentalist played by Charlton Heston) meets his boyhood friend, now a Roman officer (played by Stephen Boyd). Heston says that he follows God, but Boyd (choosing allegiance to Rome, the New World Order of that day) says that Caesar (Big Brother or Antichrist) is God because he represents power and control. When Boyd asks Heston to inform on those in Judea who are rebellious against Rome, Heston refuses, saying “they’re patriots.” Because the Roman Empire (the New World Order) considered as threats those religious fundamentalists who were also active proponents of patriotic nationalism (similarly today), Heston is falsely accused of an offense and placed on a slave ship. The Roman officer in charge of the ship never refers to Heston by name but only his number “41” (in the New World Order under Big Brother we will all be known only by numbers assigned to us). The officer tells Heston to “row well and live.”
This is what life will be like under the Socialist New World Order world government, which was described at the end of The Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism (1928) by Fabian Socialist George Bernard Shaw: “…under Socialism… you would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught, and employed whether you liked it or not. If it were discovered that you had not the character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed….”

President Obama’s role in the plan for the New World Order is to continue the evisceration of the U.S. military and move the nation more and more in a Socialist direction. The difference between the Roman Empire and the New World Order is that one could possibly escape from Rome’s clutches, but the New World Order’s Socialist World Government will be worldwide and there will be nowhere to flee. If the globalists’ plans for a Socialist World Government are to be thwarted, it will take many more Americans to stand up and speak out on behalf of American national sovereignty, and to halt the precipitant and precipitous disarming of our nation and the closing of our military bases (our military base, the Presidio, at San Francisco has been taken over by the Gorbachev Foundation/USA). We must stand and be counted before it’s too late. We must warn against the New World Order now, and pray for God’s protection to help us maintain our national sovereignty, and be truly one nation under God.
