Toward A New World Order

U.S. President George H. Bush in 1990

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: For all the talk of conspiracy about a "New World Order" allow me to try to clarify a few things. First and foremost, there is no conspiracy. All of this is public knowledge, and everything (or almost everything) was announced to the world two decades ago. The New World Order began on September 11, 1990 when it was inaugurated by President George H. Bush in a speech he made before an emergency joint session of Congress. There is nothing mysterious about the New World Order. It is simply the paradigm that emerged after the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. It had been planned for decades, probably since the late 1940s through 1950s. It consists simply of the United States asserting its political and economic will around the world using the vehicles of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and the United Nations (UN).

Now, let me break this down. The backbone of the New World Order is the United Nations. The backbone of the United Nations is NATO. While the backbone of NATO is the United States. Without the United States, NATO is nothing. Without NATO the United Nations is nothing -- even the security council becomes a paper tiger with no teeth. Now the United States doesn't necessarily need the UN or NATO to act, and we saw that with the Second Gulf War (or Iraq War) in 2003, in which the United States decided to "go it alone" with a "coalition of the willing." So let me make this perfectly clear. The New World Order is really nothing more or less than the supremacy of the United States in geopolitical affairs. It is Yankee Imperialism on a global level. The US would prefer to use the vehicles of the UN or NATO to give its actions some level of international "legitimacy," but it clearly does not need them to act. Keep this in mind. It's important because when was the last time you saw the UN or NATO acting without the United States? The UN Security Council can't even pass a resolution without US approval, and NATO forces are anaemic without US support. The UN doesn't always do what the US wants it to do, but make no mistake about it, if the US disapproves, whatever the UN wanted to do will amount to nothing. As for NATO, it is possible for them to act alone, but they rarely ever do. Even when a military action is claimed to be NATO alone, it is primarily US forces who carry the lion's share of the load. So the New World Order is us! We, the United States of America, are the New World Order! Should that surprise us? What does it say on our money? Novus Ordo Seclorum which translates from Latin into English as "A New Order for the Ages."

I find it humorous when neo-conservative Americans so vehemently protest the New World Order while simultaneously waving an American flag shouting platitudes of American patriotism. The flag they wave is the backbone of the New World Order! Granted, America didn't necessarily start that way, as the secession from the British Empire was a protest of world orders in general, but it radically became that in just one generation as America expanded westward and put down anyone who stood in its way, including Mexico, the emerging nation of Dixie and the American Indian tribes. By the early 20th century, Yankee Imperialism spread to Central and South America and as far west as the Philippines. Yankee Imperialism was put on hold, for the most part, due to World War II and the Cold War, but after the fall of the Soviets the door was opened wide again. This time however, the United States federal government is not nearly as interested in land as it is in resources -- particularly oil.

America's first Caesar -- Abraham Lincoln -- lamented the new financial paradigm that emerged as the Civil War turned the United States from a voluntary Union into a compulsive Empire...
"I have two great enemies, the southern army in front of me and the financial institutions, in the rear. Of the two, the one in the rear is the greatest enemy. I see in the future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of the war." -- Abraham Lincoln in a letter to Col. William F. Elkins upon passage of the National Banking Act of 1863
Herein lies the crux of the problem. Once empires are made, they must be financed, and to be financed, you need to have big financial systems. The National Banking Acts of 1863 and 1864 created the primary foundation for this, later accentuated by the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The only problem is, whoever controls the purse strings, controls the empire. Thus a quasi-fascist system is created, wherein the banks control the government, and the government controls the banks. They become joined at the hip, so to speak, and it doesn't stop there. Once this relationship is created, other forms of big-business would like to join in too, getting a piece of the action. So in time, major corporations cut deals with the government to gain favours, and these in turn help them to crush all local competition and gain complete control of their particular market niche. In time, the relationship between big-business and big-government becomes symbiotic, creating a truly fascist state. Fascism and empire always go hand in hand, it only depends on the degree to which the fascism extends. When it extends into social control of the population, we often recognise it very clearly, but when the government allows big-business to do its dirty work for it, the fascism is less recognisable, yet present nonetheless. The imperial and fascist marriage of big-business and big-government almost always results in economic catastrophe, as we are now beginning to see on a worldwide scale, thanks to the New World Order. The end result is the impoverishment of the populous for the advantage of those in government power and financial elites. As Abraham Lincoln lamented above, as a result of his own actions to fund the war effort: "corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."

So who are the players in the world today. First, there is the United States with its New World Order. By that I mean the global financial elites in New York City, joined at the hip to politicians and bureaucrats in Washington DC. Through New York and Washington, America's New World Order has complete economic control of North and South America, Europe, and Oceania (which includes Australia and New Zealand of course). The long term goal of America's New World Order is consolidation of these regions into politically unified trading blocks, such as; the European Union, the North American Union, South American Union, Oceanic Union, etc. Once these trading blocks are solidified, the financial global elites (currently based in New York) will be able to step up off the field, so to speak, no longer needing the United States alone to do their bidding. They will then have multiple political-unions to rely on in each corner of the world. Until then however, the USA remains the powerhouse of the New World Order, and the global elites in New York look to Washington DC to carry the water. The regions of the world the United States does not control are Russia, China, North Africa and parts of the Middle East wherein a good portion of the world's oil reserves lie. Though the Soviet Union has fallen, Russia still remains an obstacle to the New World Order. China also remains an obstacle, though the United States has been working for decades to woo the Chinese into its economic fold. Russia remains an ardent opponent to the New World Order, and the last stalwarts of the Middle East (Syria and Iran) are holding out to prevent the New World Order from gaining complete control of the Middle East. This was why the United States threw its support (and backing) behind the Arab Spring. It was designed to overthrow the regimes of Egypt and Libya who were holding out against the New World Order. The United States has also sponsored uprisings in Iran and Syria as well, all of which have resulted in failure so far. Now the New World Order has set its military sights on Syria for immediate destruction, and Iran will soon follow.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, especially to my fellow countrymen in the United States, but our own government (Washington DC) is the primary mover and shaker behind the New World Order, controlled by financial globalists in New York of course, and vice versa. The relationship is symbiotic. In fact, when you really get down to the core of it, Washington DC is the New World Order! And you're contributing to it every time you spend a dollar. All you have to do is look at what it says on the back -- Novus Ordo Seclorum.

Empire America has grown from a continental empire (late 19th century) to a hemispherical empire (early 20th century) to a worldwide empire (late 20th to early 21st century). We are not the voluntary Union the Founding Fathers envisioned, and we haven't been one for 150 years! The United States has become literally EVERYTHING we rebelled against in 1776 and much much worse. Our kings do not sit on thrones but rather in the boardrooms of international banks. Our president serves only as a prime minister to them, and if he will not do their bidding, he will be replaced. Massive corporations and financial institutions have robbed the American people of their wealth and their freedom, but it doesn't stop there. The vultures of the New World Order are now picking the carcasses of the Middle East and any other region that stands in the way of worldwide domination. I have sad news for us, my fellow countrymen. The United States cannot be saved. It is an empire, it has been one for a very long time, and it will go the way of all world empires eventually, straight into the scrapheap of history. If you say you want to fight the New World Order, and yet you support the system of government that currently exists in Washington DC, you make yourself a liar. It is doublespeak. You contradict yourself. The United States of America, as governed by Washington DC, IS the New World Order. If you oppose one, you must oppose them both. There is no other way. For if you support one, you support them both -- period! You may say, "Ah but Sir Knight, the New World Order has only existed for 22 years, we can reverse it." To which I must respond that while it is true the New World Order was created on September 11, 1990 it was planned by our government for at least some forty years prior to that. It cannot be reversed, because for 150 years the United States federal government has concerned itself with nothing but empire building. Prior to World War II, our government was concerned with consolidating a hemispherical empire in Central America, and prior to that a continental empire from the East to the West coast. Ever since the election of 1860, the United States has been entirely about empire building, and that is why the Southern states seceded in 1860-61, and that is why the federal government waged a Civil War to crush them in 1861-1865. America IS the New World Order. Get that through your skull and get used to it.

Like ancient Rome, the United States has since become the chief exporter of all sorts of vile things as well, from pornography to abortion-on-demand to gay marriage. We have become the world's primary force of moral degradation. Now, most recently under the Obama administration, the United States leads the way in limiting religious freedom in the Western world, by virtue of an HHS mandate that limits "religion" to what happens within the four walls of a church building. It is but a short step from this to overt interference with religious teaching itself. The New World Order (our American federal government) does not seek to eliminate religion. On the contrary, it seeks to control it.

I am afraid it is impossible to resist the New World Order without simultaneously resisting the United States federal government, as the two are one in the same. Any attempt to resist one, and support the other, is self-defeating. There is only one way to do this effectively. The United States federal government must be put into its place and reminded that it cannot rule the world. Only the people of the United States can effectively do that, and the only real and tangible way we can do it is to follow the example of our founding fathers, and assume for ourselves, among the powers of the earth, the right to govern ourselves, apart from the New World Order regime in Washington DC. When the US Federal government is distracted by credible secession and independence movements here at home, it will have less time and energy to dedicate to international issues, and that is necessary to throw a wrench in the works of the New World Order.

There are two political entities within the United States that are actively working toward this end in what could amount to a very effective way. One is on the political right of the spectrum and the other is on the political left. Both oppose empire. Both oppose interference in the Middle East. Both oppose the New World Order. What are they? They are the Second Vermont Republic and the League of the South. These are regional independence movements within the United States that seek to establish their own sovereign countries, and they are gaining steam at an alarming rate. Now there are other secession movements in the United States as well, but none would have the same dramatic impact on the New World Order as the success of these two. In the State of Vermont, approximately 17% of the adult population supports the Second Vermont Republic. In the State of South Carolina, support of the League of the South is at a whopping 20% of the adult population. As the American empire (New World Order) grows, these numbers will rise. The biggest obstacle both of these organisations face is exposure and getting the word out. If you oppose the New World Order, there is only one real way to fight it, and that is to support one (or both) of these organisations. I would encourage all of my readers, both domestically and internationally, to explore the websites of these organisations and consider making a donation today. Then tell a friend immediately. Outside of prayer to the Almighty God, this is our ONLY realistic method of recourse. Please prayerfully consider joining the battle.
