Liberal World Order: “As Long as it Takes”?
“This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm,” declared Biden Administration official Brian Deese. “Liberal world order” is a new name for what the globalists meant when they spoke of a “new world order” and a “new normal.”
Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, defines the “Great Reset” to refer to the globalist vision for the future. The elite met there again in May to reassert their control over politics worldwide.
Expanding a bloated NATO remains atop their agenda, by adding Sweden and Finland to its membership. This begins a process by which the United States promises to send troops to those countries if they are ever attacked, further entangling our country in the intractable conflicts of Europe.
Also called the “liberal international order,” globalists favor a system in which all the important decisions are made by so-called experts without input or rejection by citizens of individual nation-states. The views of American voters are irrelevant under this scheme, as voters are then told we are bound by international norms that require us to participate in foreign wars.
“For as long as it takes” was the talking point chanted by Joe Biden to the press who followed him all the way to Madrid, Spain last month to ask Biden questions he’s been avoiding. Ignoring Peter Doocy of Fox News, Biden referred to his cheat sheet and revealed that “I’m supposed to go down the list here.”
The first name on Biden’s list was an Associated Press reporter, who asked Biden about the recent pledge by the democratic G7 leaders to support Ukraine “for as long as it takes.” The AP reporter asked, “I’m wondering if you would explain what that means to the American people, ‘for as long as it takes’?”
“We are going to support Ukraine as long as it takes,” Biden responded, without directly answering the question. “We are going to stick with Ukraine as long as it takes to make sure that they are not defeated by Russia.”
Next on Biden’s list was a reporter from the Democrat- friendly New York Times, who asked Biden how his plan to cap Russian exports would affect the high price of gasoline in the United States. “Are you confident that that cap would bring down prices for American drivers?”
“How long is it fair to expect American drivers to pay a premium because of this war?” Biden apparently did not understand this simple question, so the reporter had to repeat it.
“The war has pushed prices up,” the Times reporter continued, although gas prices were already rising before the war began. “How long is it fair to expect American drivers to pay that premium for this war?”
“As long as it takes,” Biden chanted again like a trained parrot, “so Russia cannot defeat Ukraine. This is a critical position for the world. Why do we have NATO?”
With that circular reasoning based on the mere existence of the unproductive NATO expanded more than it should be, Biden declared “I’m outta here.” He then ignored a roomful of reporters including Fox’s Peter Doocy who shouted more questions as he left the stage.
NATO’s original purpose was to protect Western Europe from invasion by the Soviet Union, but that Communist nation disintegrated 30 years ago. Originally consisting of 12 countries, NATO membership increases to an unmanageable 32 with the addition of Sweden and Finland, which doubles the length of the tense land border between NATO and Russia from 754 miles to 1,584 miles.
Biden will not defend our southern border, so he should not be committing Americans to defend a long border with Russia that is being doubled in length. “There’s going to be a new world order out there,” Biden told CEOs at the Business Roundtable on March 21, “and we’ve got to lead it,” though he never explained why.
Standing firm for the “liberal world order” is the defense asserted by the Biden Administration to $5 per gallon in gas. That was its response to a good question posed by CNN, “What do you say to those families who say, ‘Listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years. This is just not sustainable’?”
Conservative Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), fresh from her landslide primary victory against an all-out attempt by liberals to unseat her, criticized Democrats for imposing higher gas prices to prop up a liberal world order. “The White House openly stated that you’re just going to have to pay more in gas so that they can hold the ‘liberal world order,’” Boebert tweeted.
The cat is out of the bag: higher gas prices are due to Democrats’ insistence on a liberal world order. No thanks to that.
Out-of-Touch Globalists Seek to Expand NATO
Amid chaos on many fronts, globalists march forward into the night. Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum convening in Davos, Switzerland, welcomed fellow globalists with this: “The future is built by us, by a powerful community, as you, here in this room.”
Meanwhile in the United States we face soaring gas prices, shortage of baby formula, and the highest inflation seen in 40 years. The global elite would find more reality than their self- aggrandizing meeting if they drove to nearby France for the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival, where Tom Cruise drew a five-minute standing ovation for his new Reagan-era movie, Top Gun: Maverick.
Covid restrictions were rescinded for this film festival, and the French Open in tennis did not ban the top men’s player for being unvaccinated, as Australian authorities did. In mid-May, Australian voters rejected the Fauci-like policies of lockdowns and vaccination, by defeating their ruling party such that its Covid-dictatorial prime minister, Scott Morrison, resigned.
Democrat incumbents should brace for the same defeat here, with the average price of regular-grade gasoline spiking in the first half of May by 33 cents to a kneecapping $4.71 per gallon. Baby formula is widely unavailable in the United States now, while Congress instead sends our money to Ukraine.
The unelected globalists convening in Switzerland plotted their next moves to entangle us further in foreign conflicts. High on their list was to add Sweden and Finland to NATO, thereby provoking Russia even further.
Turkey objected to this, which it had the right to do, but the globalists would not take “no” for an answer. Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) insisted on pushing this expansion through anyway.
Donald Trump lifted McConnell to reelection in 2020 when Trump won Kentucky with 62%, having coattails that pulled McConnell up to 58% against a spirited, $90-million-funded challenger. Without gratitude, McConnell rejects Trump’s “America First” principles and probably resents Trump’s greater popularity.
McConnell-led senators voted against oversight and transparency for the $40 billion in new American funds to be sent to Ukraine’s “NGO regime,” a web of shadowy non-governmental organizations unaccountable to voters and taxpayers. Billions will thereby flow to Leftist groups, some likely associated with George Soros, to promote liberal politics in Europe and possibly even back here in the U.S.
Indeed, we have already seen much clamoring for Poland to rescind its pro-life laws in order to accommodate liberal politics for the 4.8 million Ukrainian refugees charitably accepted by that country. A tiny fraction of the $40 billion blank check might be enough to flip conservative Poland to the Soros side.
Hungary’s conservative president, Viktor Orbán, was just reelected for the fourth time in a landslide, and he has criticized the globalist approach to the Russian-Ukraine war. The European Union is not supposed to impose embargoes unless there is unanimous consent, and Hungary does not consent to an embargo by the EU on Russian oil.
The U.S. Constitution requires a 2/3rds vote in the Senate in order to ratify any treaty, such as the proposal to expand NATO at this perilous time. This Treaty Clause is the provision in our Constitution most hated by globalists, and there should be conservative opposition to any attempt to ratify treaties to entangle us further in the European conflicts.
Polling data does not support what the globalists are doing to our country. A CBS News Poll taken in May reveals an astounding 69% of Americans say that our economy is “fairly bad” or “very bad,” most of whom chose the “very bad” description.
By a 53-47% margin, Americans disapprove of how Biden is handling the Russia-Ukraine war, and by a 70-30% margin Americans disapprove of his handling of inflation. Fully 74% of Americans feel things are going somewhat or very badly.
Yet McConnell and the attendees of the World Economic Forum do not seem to have gotten the memo. Some Republican primary candidates gained support by criticizing McConnell, including Mo Brooks in Alabama to rejuvenate his campaign and Eric Greitens in Missouri to remain competitive there.
Democrat Party voters are also toppling the globalists. The Establishment-preferred Democrat candidate for Senate in Pennsylvania, clean-cut Rep. Conor Lamb, lost by a landslide 33 points to a tattooed stroke victim whom no one would mistake for a globalist.
In Oregon where ballots were still being counted more than a week after the election, globalism supporter and seven- term Democrat Rep. Kurt Schrader lost to a school board member who criticized D.C. politicians for not addressing American needs. Incumbents were also surprisingly defeated in state legislative races in Kentucky and Pennsylvania on May 17.
Challengers are emphasizing how out-of-touch Congressmen are today. Biden and congressional leadership seem intent on sending endless cash to Ukraine without any accountability, and focusing on expanding NATO to provoke still more military conflict.
Pork and Injustice in Senate Gun Control Bill
With much fanfare, a gun control compromise was announced by the U.S. Senate on June 12 and its supporters quickly obtained its enactment into law. But instead of addressing the recent mass shootings, this legislation wastes billions of dollars in handouts to liberal groups while advancing feminist ideology.
The mass shootings had nothing to do with alleged domestic violence. Yet a central part of this gun control bill is to broaden a lifetime deprivation of Second Amendment rights of men subjected to accusations by women.
Teenage boys are the worst perpetrators of the mass shootings, who typically lack any relationships with girls. Yet the Senate gun control bill jeopardizes rights and reduces job opportunities for men who have been accused by women of unwanted touching, as Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was.
Ten Republican Senators, four of whom are retiring now at relatively young ages, agreed to support this gun control bill. The other six, none of whom are up for reelection this year, include perennial anti-Trumpers Mitt Romney (R-UT), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Bill Cassidy (R-LA).
The 60-vote filibuster threshold in the Senate would have blocked passage unless at least ten Republicans crossed over to the Democrat side. When the final vote was taken on June 23, fifteen Republicans joined all 50 Democrats to pass the bill.
After wasting $54 billion on Leftist politicians in Ukraine, allocating billions more to Leftist groups in our country may not seem like much. But a billion dollars to push enactment of gun control at the state level, such as euphemistically named “red flag” laws that can be misused, could improperly go toward tipping the scales in close elections.
The billions of dollars in new funding for mental health clinics would not have prevented the recent shootings by defiant teenagers. If mental health experts cannot distinguish between men and women, how could they reliably identify potential killers? In some cases, mental health clinics can be a means to take children away from good parents. Mental health testing in public schools could be misused to detect and deflect conservative beliefs.
Couching feminist ideology in gender-biased terminology, the legislation seeks to close the so-called “boyfriend loophole” to cause lifetime deprivations of Second Amendment rights. A spat with a girlfriend, as many popular
athletes, politicians, and others have once had, would then be misused to stigmatize and exclude for life these men from ever holding a job that entails carrying a gun.
The Lautenberg Amendment, enacted in 1996, already denies for life the Second Amendment rights of any man ever convicted of a minor misdemeanor domestic violence charge, which is sometimes broadly defined to include even offensive touching of one’s wife. Now Democrats want to expand this to enable any girlfriend to make a false accusation that could result in men being barred for life from jobs in the military, police, or other gun-carrying professions.
Johnny Depp spent millions of dollars and several years of his life to clear his name of false domestic violence accusations. But most men are unwilling or unable to do that, instead accepting a misdemeanor plea bargain; they should not permanently lose their constitutional rights and job opportunities because of it.
Gun control zealots want to expand the draconian Lautenberg Amendment, even though it would not have prevented any of the recent mass shootings by teenage boys. The Senate bill would deprive men for life of Second Amendment rights based on a mere restraining order requested by a girlfriend, which is often issued based on an unproven accusation and without a hearing for the accused.
Many injustices already arise under current law when a man does not realize that a misdemeanor offense from decades ago senselessly makes it unlawful to possess a gun for his own defense today. Rather than be warned about this or moderately fined, he faces mandatory imprisonment for owning a gun for self-defense merely because of an obscure federal law.
Harsh penalties in this draft gun control bill would be enforced by inflexible federal courts, and a bill proposed by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) seeks 5-year mandatory minimum sentences for a gun peacefully carried by someone having a minor outdated offense. Some judges like locking up someone for a long time for the “offense” of harmlessly carrying a gun, based on an outdated misdemeanor triggering a deprivation of his Second Amendment rights.
Older men, husbands, and fathers are not the people who have been committing these horrific shootings. Teenagers addicted to video games are the culprits, yet this supposedly bipartisan legislation is silent about that.
Gun rights were unjustifiably taken away from peaceful participants in the Trump rally on January 6. One who pled guilty to a minor misdemeanor petitioned the judge to restore her gun rights, which the Trump-appointed judge granted but was criticized for it by the media.
Pouring billions of dollars into Leftist groups to advocate for state gun control laws, funding bigger mental health clinics, and imprisoning older men due to an unproven domestic accusation or minor misdemeanor will do nothing to stop mass shootings by teenagers.
Roe Reversal Is the Decision of the Century
“I never like to take credit for anything,” Donald Trump told a hostile reporter in May. “God made the decision,” he added recently about the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.
Let’s give credit where it is due: Trump went 3-for-3 on his Supreme Court nominees on the pro-life issue, and Republican Never-Trumpers were wrong to oppose him. In less than six years Trump achieved the overturning of Roe that stymied Republicans for a half-century, a feat no other Republican president attained.
All three of Trump’s High Court nominees were needed for this 5-4 margin of victory in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, to reverse Roe entirely. Justices Alito and Thomas deserve special gratitude for courageously leading their 3 new colleagues against the scourge of Roe that has long been the raison d’etre and sacred cow of the Left.
Many others, too numerous to list, deserve thanks for this spectacular triumph. Included in that list should be all who supported Trump in 2016 and all who support him now against retaliation by the Left.
Without Roe, liberals have no authority anymore for their campaigns that promote abortion. Without Roe, Democrat politicians no longer have a basis for continuing to loot taxpayers to fund abortion, which many Americans oppose.
Democrat politicians threaten political consequences over this decision, but none is likely now as may have occurred 30 years ago. Today Democrat politicians are heavily dependent on demographic groups that do not support abortion, and will not be more likely to vote for a candidate who advocates for it.
The media portrays a new War Among the States over this issue, but if so then it is a war that the pro-abortion states will lose by their declining population. Already red states gained many new congressional seats and electoral college votes in the latest census due to migration, and with pro-life laws going into effect their population growth will continue to outpace the blue states.
As the majority on the Court pointed out in its splendid decision, states were long allowed to prohibit abortion for most of our country’s history, including when the 14th Amendment was adopted. Most states did outlaw abortion, and the recent Court decision allows a return to pro-life laws that existed before Roe.
The Constitution contains nothing that supports abortion, the Court properly held. The Roe v. Wade decision was severely flawed in numerous ways that the Court picked apart.
Without a solid historical basis for legal abortion in the United States dating back at least to the 1800s, there were never any valid grounds for finding a constitutional right to it. At the time of Roe v. Wade, the national consensus was against abortion rather than in favor of it, so that could not justify creating a new constitutional right to it either.
Several states are already benefiting from a boost in carrying pregnancies to term and childbirth by prohibiting abortion. While the abortion industry has started filing lawsuits in state courts to block pro-life laws, states such as Alabama have constitutional provisions prohibiting any creation of a right to abortion.
“Trigger laws” in about a dozen states automatically restored bans on abortion in anticipation of the Supreme Court overruling Roe v. Wade. There is a slight delay in some of those states to await official certification of the Supreme Court ruling before unborn children are saved by this automatic ban.
This reversal of Roe creates an historic opportunity for conservatives to attract more young voters, who are increasingly pro-life. This is perhaps the only issue where young people are more conservative than their parents, and fan favorites such as Justin Bieber and Tim Tebow are outspokenly pro-life.
The only real argument by supporters of Roe v. Wade is to abide by how the Court had previously ruled, a doctrine known as “stare decisis,” but the conservative justices shredded that as inapplicable to a decision as unjustified as Roe was. Moreover, Phyllis Schlafly kept the Equal Rights Amendment out of the Constitution, so that could not help abortion although liberals filed last-ditch arguments to invoke the never-ratified amendment
The Court correctly shut the door on the argument that abortion must be allowed in order for women to enjoy the equal protection of the laws. If a new Equal Rights Amendment attempts to create a right to abortion, then under this ruling it would have to do so explicitly, which would never pass.
The three Justices appointed by Trump referred to the “unborn” child more than a dozen times, while the Justices appointed by Clinton and Obama did not use that term even once in their long-winded dissent. The future belongs to the unborn, as the Court majority recognized and held in reversing Roe, and America will benefit from contributions by those not aborted.
