In addressing the United Nations General Assembly in 1990, the first President Bush declared, “It is in our hands to cap a historic movement toward a new world order and a long era of peace.  We have a vision of a new partnership of nations that transcends the Cold War.”  Four months later on January 16 1991, he declared to the American people in his State of the Union address, “We now have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order.”  However he never explained what the “New World Order” was. 


Recently at the G8 meeting in Genoa, I happened to be outside the building where President Bush and Russia’s President Putin were meeting.   When our President came outside I was able to shake his hand.  My first question was, “Is the world at peace?” to which he replied, “We are at peace.”  My second question was, “Is this the New World Order your father spoke about?” He did not choose to answer it. Therefore, we must consider the following.


In 1945 the United Nations was founded as a way to “end all wars.”  It’s initial structure included a secretariat, General Assembly where the nation’s of the world sent their ambassadors to voice opinions and vote on issues, the Security Council with China, Russia, the United Kingdom, France and the U.S. as permanent members, and the Economic and Security Council which was charged with promoting higher standards of living, full employment and conditions of economic and social progress and development, along with human rights, education and health.  In 1990, the first President Bush revealed our loss of sovereignty when he asked permission of the Security Council to bomb Iraq.


In 1971 President Nixon took the dollar off of the gold standard.  As a result, the rest of the world followed and for the first time since the ancient trading routes of the Middle East, the world no longer used a tangible to support the value of currency.  As a result, to help him and the world determine the economic direction of the world’s currencies, he called together four countries and their finance ministers to meet at the White House in 1973.  Two years later they began a formal relationship when they met in Rambouillet France, the Group of Five.  By 1977 they had added two more countries and were comprised of the United States, Canada, Germany, Japan, Italy, France and Great Britain, thus becoming the Group of Seven.  


In 1980, the Group of Seven spearheaded the move to tear down economic borders between countries, thus beginning the financial and monetary integration which had led to a borderless world financially where almost $2 trillion moves around the world on a daily basis looking for the highest return and the quickest play.


In 1990, we are told communism fell.  For the first time since 1918, the world became one politically.  We have no enemies—foreign or domestic!  In Genoa, at the G8, the current President Bush declared to the world,  “We’re basically saying the Cold War is forever over.  We’re exploring the opportunity to redefine the strategic framework for keeping the pace not that [which] existed in the past, but a strategic framework as we go out in the 21st century.”  As a result, in 1998 Russia was asked to join the Group of Seven in every area except economic.  Therefore, on the economic level, it is the G7 and on the political, labor, education, interior, environmental levels, etc., it is the G8.


As early as 1988? The Group of Seven started to highlight the environment.  In their 1985-90 communique they stated that the environment transcended borders.


In 1992, the United Nations began a series of mega-conferences that today are changing the values of society, property rights, where a person can live, what he can be and do and even believe.   At the United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, the countries of the world shifted the order of life systems when they declared that the earth had dominance over man.  A key philosophical tenant of this belief is sustainable development that says that there are too many people in the world and the United Nations is basically the only global organization in the world to monitor and control the world’s resources.  The Group of Seven felt so strongly about this conference that they set precedence by requiring attendance by each president and prime minister. 


In 1994, the trade borders of America came down with the passage of the 2500 page North American Free Trade Agreement that basically declared open borders between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.  In addition, the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs was passed which then became on January 1, 1995, the World Trade Organization.  The goal of this 27,000 page document is to eventually drop all of the borders in the world so that the small and medium businessman and farmer in the U.S. will now compete with their counterparts not around the corner, but in Vietnam, Columbia, China, Nigeria, Uganda, etc.


By 1997, the Internet caught on and the electronic borders between individuals, companies, churches, schools, governments and countries came down, thus making us one without having to penetrate borders.  G7 INVOLVEMENT


In 1998 the International Criminal Court was birthed in Rome Italy.  For the first time since the Roman Empire there is now an international body that says they have the right to transcend national borders in order to arrest an alleged international criminal.  The very fact that this court exists will lead to the harmonization of judicial laws, like our trade laws, to conform to this new structure.


As a result of the above, we are told that we are in an open boarder inter-dependent world where the lines between the domestic and foreign spheres have become blurred.  We are one. 


In September 2000, the United Nations’ held a “Millennium Summit”.  There the kings, princes, presidents and prime ministers agreed to a wide range of empowerments for the entire UN system.  These empowerments include:  adding a rapid deployment force of 42,000 soldiers or 6,000 from seven countries, who will be permanently assigned to the Security Council, a second chamber for representative government—with the hopes of you and I being represented at the United Nations by perhaps a locally elected representative, as well as broad powers given to the General Assembly and to the office of Secretary-General.  The only item that did not receive specific attention was the idea of a global tax.  When you look closely at this structure, a “global congressional branch” appears to be in the making.


Over the 26 years, the Group of Eight has evolved into what appears to be a “global executive branch.”  Since 1973 when the finance ministers came together, the Group of Eight has added other “cabinet” levels which include:  trade ministers in 1978, foreign ministers in 1984, environment ministers in 1992, labor ministers in 1994 and most recently education ministers in 2000.  All of the respective ministers from the G8 countries meet throughout the year, some more frequently than others.  Each issues their own report that goes to the G8 Presidents and Prime Ministers.


As the global governmental system has evolved, it is the task of the Secretary-General to ensure that the recommendations of the Group of Eight are carried out throughout the UN system.  In this respect, he acts like a  “Chief Civil Servant”.


Lastly, the demands of the protestors who now represent “civil society” which is you and I, was for a global tax to pay for the debt reduction for the poorest countries and for the elimination of HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.  They are calling for a 1% tax on the borderless $2 trillion created by the Group of Seven!  All of these socialistic transfers of wealth mechanisms will do just that—transfer wealth!  Is this the New World Order?  If this isn’t it, then I don’t know what it is.
