Buchanan's Speech Ignored
By Christopher J. Petherick
Pat Buchanan, speaking in Boston before the World Affairs Council, an old-line lobbying group founded in 1921 with an internationalist agenda, de clared that he is prepared to lead a revolt of the "masses" against the nation's ruling elite and the media for their staunch support of the New World Order.
"Whose side are you on?" Buchanan asked the crowd of reporters and plutocrats.
Buchanan, in what was billed as a "major policy speech," assailed the two party system, the government and the corporate elite for promoting one-world authority in sharp contrast to what the average American wants.
"Loyalty to the New World Order is disloyalty to the republic," Buchanan said. "In nation after nation, the struggle between patriotism and globalism is under way.
"My vision of America," Buchanan con tinued, "is of a republic that has recaptured every trace of her lost sovereignty, independence and liberty, a nation that is once again self-reliant in agriculture, industry and technology, a country that can, if need be, stand alone in the world.
"My vision is of a republic, not an empire, a nation that does not go to war unless she is attacked, or her vital interests are imperiled, or her honor is impugned. And when she does go to war, it is only after following a constitutional declaration by the Congress of the United States," Buchanan elaborated.
Buchanan cited futurist and socialist H.G. Wells' 1939 novel, The New World Order: "Countless people will hate the New World Order ... and will die pro testing it."
He responded: "Well, Mr. Wells, we are your malcontents. But we're not going to die protesting your New World Order, we're going to live fighting it. And Seattle may just prove to be the Boston Tea Party of that New World Order.
"This, then, is the millennial struggle that succeeds the Cold War," Buchanan continued. "It is the struggle of patriots of every nation against a world government where all nations yield up their sovereignty and fade away. It is the struggle of nationalism against globalism, and it will be fought out not only among nations, but within nations."
According to Buchanan, the two party system is complicit in advancing the New World Order by supporting unconstitutional internationalist cabals such as the World Trade Organization and the United Nations, and international agreements like the global warming agree ment signed in Kyoto, Japan.
To illustrate how the two parties are one and the same, Buchanan said: "The New World Order has been on the fast track since the Bush presidency, when, as he prepared to launch Gulf War I, President Bush said a New World Order was America's goal.
Carrying on Bush's work, "In 1993, the Clinton White House, in a secret directive, declared its intent to put U.S. troops under UN command."
Buchanan's Jan. 6 speech received a virtual media blackout.
According to reports,The New York Times, The Washington Times and The Washington Post had reporters in attendance. But not one reported on Bu chanan. Not even the city's remaining daily, The Boston Globe, reported on the event.
