World Government Rising

World government rising

By Patrick Buchanan

As America's attention was riveted on the Middle East last week, another floor was being quietly added to the superstructure of the World Government that is rising to rule over our grandchildren.

With 60 nations having ratified it, the International Criminal Court – crafted in Rome four years ago – will come into being in July. Modeled on the Nuremberg Tribunals that prosecuted the Nazis, the ICC will have the power to prosecute the soldiers and civilians of any nation it decides has engaged in genocide, war crimes or crimes against humanity.

In his last hours in office, President Clinton briefly interrupted his issuing of presidential pardons for convicted felons to sign us on to the ICC treaty. Now the Bush folks may be going wobbly, as well.

"U.S. Softens Its Stance as World Court Is Ratified," ran the headline over a Financial Times story last week. It went on to report: "Though the Bush administration deeply opposes the world court, Pierre-Richard Prosper, U.S. ambassador at large for war crimes, yesterday took a surprisingly conciliatory position. He did not rule out cooperating with the United Nations Security Council in sending cases of war crimes, genocide, or crimes against humanity to be tried at the world court."

Previously, Prosper said, "The U.S. is not and will not be a part of the ICC." He even suggested the president might "unsign" the treaty. Indeed, with America fighting a war on terror, with U.S. troops in 100 countries, with anti-Americanism rampant among the global elites who will dominate this ICC as they do all the other international institutions in which we are ensnared, it is imperative that we behead this baby rattlesnake in its crib.

For the real target of this ICC is the sovereignty and independence of the United States. Its very creation is a statement by the "international community" that human rights trump national sovereignty, that the U.N. has the moral and legal right to intervene in nations to end human-rights abuses as it defines them, and to try, convict and imprison national leaders.

Given that slavery is a serious human-rights abuse, under the ICC, Europe's monarchies would have had the moral and legal right to destroy the federal Union of Washington, Adams and Jefferson.

Under the ICC, Churchill could have been prosecuted for the fire-bombing of Dresden; Truman for Nagasaki. Nixon and Kissinger would have been hauled before the ICC for the "Christmas bombing" of Hanoi, which enraged elite opinion worldwide, though it effected the release of our POWs. Bill Clinton might have faced a war crimes trial for his 78-day bombing of Serbia.

A few years back, a Spanish judge showed what the future holds when he ordered the Brits to seize octogenarian Gen. Augusto Pinochet and transport him to Spain for trial for what had happened in Chile two or three decades ago. The court's first big splash may be the trial in absentia of Ariel Sharon for alleged war crimes in Jenin.

Americans seem unable to understand that there exists today in the dreams of internationalists and globalists a plan for a world government, the rise of which requires an end to the independence, sovereignty and liberty of the country we love and to which we have sworn allegiance.

Now, the institutions of world government – the U.N., WTO, IMF, World Bank, World Court, ICC – were created for high-sounding goals: World peace, to facilitate free trade, to rebuild war-torn Europe, to ensure justice is done to the Pol Pots and Idi Amins and their victims. But as each of these global institutions grows, it evolves and assumes more and more power. None is ever shut down; none ever disappears.

They are all made to accrete power and last forever.

And just as the United States government grew in power to where it asserted a right to crush in a civil war and dominate the states that had created it at Philadelphia, so the goal of the coming world government is to supersede and one day rule the nations that midwifed its first-born institutions in the closing days of World War II.

When the United States assumes the chairmanship of the U.N. Security Council in August, President Bush should unsign the Rome Statute creating the ICC and sever all connections to it. Though he will be accused of unilateralism, of "isolating" America, the isolation of America from world government is a duty that presidents must perform to remain faithful to the Constitution and their oaths of office.

This scares the hell out of me. Bush has already shown his willingness to ignore the Constitution when he signed the campaign finance bill. I can't imagine he'd approve of this abomination but will he? I'm uneasy.

Sure they will. The globalists have been working quietly and generationally for an entire Century. It's worked FAR too well for them to get anxious now.

gw is a globalist.

I have no confidence that he will "unsign"

What he should do is exercise some Leadership (he is the leader
of the free world isn't he?), and withdraw US support ($$$)
from all "global community" organizations.

Sadly, I have far less confidence in his doing this.

Just keep dealing with this "Two-Party Cartel" & you will get the same ole results from a Klintoon, Dole, Bush, Cuomo, Hagel, Leahy, etc. This GW can't spend YOUR money fast enough -up 22%. The most since LBJ. You tell me how we can print money at such a fast pace & see no inflation. And now again it has been reported that these elites are playing with the stock market to keep it from crashing. The homes in orange co ca are skyrocketing. A home 15 yrs ago sold for around 160,000 are 400,000 plus & it's not beach property - they are in the millions. 2 dollar heads of lettuce 69 cents for a lemon, 1.85/ gal gasoline and there is NO inflation, oh yea, they fudged those numbers also, ala Bubba & the felons. So keep voting these pols back in & doom yourself to surfdom, whether it's an international court or worthless money.

Oh goody! SSI will take care of our retirement needs, too! I see us boomers being caught like the retirees of the 70's were. High prices and no money to buy essentials.

Dubya said he would keep us out of this nightmare. He seems to be a man of his word.

Pat's a curious sort of guy. On the one hand, he's a conservative nationalist, bitterly opposed to immigration (illegal or otherwise), and insisting that we should not be governed by the State of Israel. On the other hand, he's also kind of a socialist arguing (in his last presidential campaign) in favor of a guaranteed minimum annual stipend for the working poor. So he's a nationalist with socialist tendencies, or (to coin a phrase) a National Socialist.

What makes you say that he seems to be a man of his word?
