From the Financial Times:
And now for a world government

But some European thinkers think that they recognise what is going on. Jacques Attali, an adviser to President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, argues that: “Global governance is just a euphemism for global government.” As far as he is concerned, some form of global government cannot come too soon. Mr Attali believes that the “core of the international financial crisis is that we have global financial markets and no global rule of law”.
So, it seems, everything is in place. For the first time since homo sapiens began to doodle on cave walls, there is an argument, an opportunity and a means to make serious steps towards a world government.
But let us not get carried away. While it seems feasible that some sort of world government might emerge over the next century, any push for “global governance” in the here and now will be a painful, slow process.
There are good and bad reasons for this. The bad reason is a lack of will and determination on the part of national, political leaders who – while they might like to talk about “a planet in peril” – are ultimately still much more focused on their next election, at home.
But this “problem” also hints at a more welcome reason why making progress on global governance will be slow sledding. Even in the EU – the heartland of law-based international government – the idea remains unpopular. The EU has suffered a series of humiliating defeats in referendums, when plans for “ever closer union” have been referred to the voters. In general, the Union has progressed fastest when far-reaching deals have been agreed by technocrats and politicians – and then pushed through without direct reference to the voters. International governance tends to be effective, only when it is anti-democratic.
The world’s most pressing political problems may indeed be international in nature, but the average citizen’s political identity remains stubbornly local. Until somebody cracks this problem, that plan for world government may have to stay locked away in a safe at the UN.
Henry Kissinger speaking on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange where he was ringing the opening bell to commerorate thirty years of US-China relations. These relations were established by Kissinger under the Nixon administration. Interestingly the bail outs of Fannie May and Freddie Mac may have been prompted by the Chinese government. Heavily invested in US denominated debt, the Chinese probably brought heavy pressure on the US to bail out the banking system.
Kissinger’s comments about the “task” of President Elect Obama:
He can give a new impetus to American Foreign policy, partly because the perception of him is so extraordinary around the world. I think his task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period when really a New World Order can be created – it’s a great opportunity, it isn’t just a crisis.
The problem, Mr Kissinger, for you – and your friends in the international oil, financial, military and government complexes – is that we know the “opportunity” is all yours and the “crisis” will be all ours. And guess what? You can shove it where the sun doesn’t shine. I had a copy of your CV in my hands some years ago when you were on the board of a company I was raising finance for. It smelt just as bad as the words coming from your mouth sound.
Maybe it’s that whole Nixon Watergate thing but you are just not credible. You are a fossil from a corrupt time and corrupt mindset that is dying. There is a New World Order coming – and when it does your crimes will be revealed, you won’t be ringing bells on Stock Exchange floors but you may be banging your tin mug on the bars for an extra cup of soup.
Richard Milhous Nixon (January 9, 1913 – April 22, 1994) was the thirty-seventh President of the United States (1969–1974), and the only president to ever resign the office.
Following the publication of the Watergate tapes, the news media focused on the anti-semitism Nixon displayed during conversations with H. R. Haldeman. During these conversations, Nixon repeatedly demanded to know who in various government organizations was Jewish, saying that Washington and the IRS was “full of Jews” and, when speaking generally of Jewish people, said that “Most Jews are disloyal” and that “you can’t trust those bastards”. Several Jewish people worked for the president including Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger, speechwriter Ben Stein and economic adviser Herbert Stein.
Here’s the video:
Alex Jones made a great documentary on all this two years ago:
The Domestic Security Enhancement Act, dubbed Patriot II never passed. The main elements of it have now all been put in place in the USA. From Wikipedia:
The Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003, also known as The Patriot Act II, and various other similar names was draft legislation written by John Ashcroft’s Department of Justice. The Center for Public Integrity obtained a copy of the draft, marked “confidential,” on February 7, 2003 and posted it on its web site along with commentary.
The draft version of the bill would have expanded the powers of the United States Government while simultaneously curtailing judicial review of these powers
This part of the Patriot II was enacted recently under the bailout plan, section 8:
Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.
Another interesting Kissinger take: How the 911 Victims families forced Kissinger to resign with two simple questions: “Do you have any Saudi Arabian clients?” and “Do you have any clients named Bin-Laden?”.
