The man once described as the “most trusted in America” has come out
firmly, boldly, explicitly – and stupidly – for the formulation of a
global government at the expense of U.S. national sovereignty.

And, somehow, Walter Cronkite did this at the United Nations last
month in near total media blackout.

Let us now shed some light on this never-ending, elitist utopian
pipedream for a one-world government that will ensure global peace
forever and ever.

On Oct. 19, Cronkite accepted the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award from the World Federalists
at the United Nations in New York.

He told those assembled, including Hillary Rodham Clinton, that, as a
newsman for CBS, he once had to keep his views on such matters to
himself. Today, as a private citizen, he is speaking out.

The first step toward achieving a one-world government, he said, is
to strengthen the United Nations.

“It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual
catastrophic world conflict we must strengthen the United Nations as a
first step toward a world government patterned after our own government
with a legislature, executive and judiciary, and police to enforce its
international laws and keep the peace,” he said. “To do that, of course,
we Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty. That would
be a bitter pill. It would take a lot of courage, a lot of faith in the
new order.”

He added that the American colonists did just that back in 1776.

Not true. A little history lesson is in order for Mr. Cronkite. In
fact, the American colonial leaders fought for independence from foreign
domination, allegiances and entanglements. Remember all those “You Are
There” historical segments you did way back when, Walter?

Apparently not. He continues.

“We cannot defer this responsibility to posterity,” he warns. “Time
will not wait. Democracy, civilization itself, is at stake. Within the
next few years, we must change the basic structure of our global
community from the present anarchic system of war and ever more
destructive weaponry to a new system governed by a democratic U.N.

Not! The imposition of a global government on the peoples of the
world will only result in more war, not less. You can already see the
resentment building today in Russia and China as Europe unifies and
unleashes Euro-cop NATO on the bad boys in the neighborhood.

Cronkite and his fellow global travelers have an undue fear of
anarchy. Anarchy should be far more appealing to freedom-loving people
than authoritarianism. It seems to me that if the people of the world
have no choices about the kind of government under which they want to
live, then the new global order is, by definition, a monopoly and thus,
by definition, totalitarian in nature.

“Today the notion of unlimited national sovereignty means
international anarchy,” he says. Better that than the alternative, I

Cronkite tells us there are three immediate steps necessary to move
us toward this lofty goal of globalization of authority – give the U.N.
more money, ratify all of the treaties negotiated by supra-national
bodies pending before the U.S. Senate and democratizing the U.N.

Cronkite says the U.S. has failed to ratify treaties for only one
reason — the influence of the “Christian Coalition and the rest of the
religious right wing.”

“Their leader, Pat Robertson, has written that we should have a world
government but only when the messiah arrives,” he said. “Any attempt to
achieve world order before that time must be the work of the Devil. This
small but well-organized group has intimidated both the Republican Party
and the Clinton administration. It has attacked each of our presidents
since FDR for supporting the United Nations. Robertson explains that
these presidents were and are unwitting agents of Lucifer.”

As President Clinton and the World Trade Organization leaders prepare
to meet in Seattle, it’s important to understand the zealotry of those
shamelessly, unself-consciously and conspiratorially working on behalf
of global government. That is the goal. You can read it for yourself in
Cronkite’s speech. These are
fanatics and extremists who will do whatever it takes to undermine the
authority and supremacy of the U.S. Constitution.

It’s about time somebody exposed it for the un-American activity it
is. They cry peace. But they steal freedom.
