Even though the primaries have decided that it’s going to be Bush
versus Gore, there is still much uncertainty ahead. The Republicans and
Democrats have made their choice. But what about the independents? Is
there going to be an effective third party candidacy? If Buchanan can
win the Reform Party nomination, he will be challenging the underlying
force that controls both major parties: the internationalist cabal.

President Clinton, the Rhodes scholar, is doing all he can to get
Congress to renew communist China’s most favored nation status and its
entry into the World Trade Organization, despite its saber rattling over
Taiwan, with threats to nuke the United States should we decide to help
Taiwan resist a PRC attack. It is interesting that something called the
Business Round Table has been sponsoring TV ads promoting more trade
with China and lambasting “isolationists” for opposing further trade
privileges to the Chinese communists before they drop their threatening

This puts Gore in a difficult position. He must back Clinton’s
pro-China policy while trying to hold onto AFL-CIO backing. The labor
unions complain that China denies its workers the right to organize, and
that it pays them wages that undercut the American wage standard. But
since the economy is good and unemployment is at its lowest in decades,
Gore may be able to argue that granting more trade privileges to China
will actually improve the ability of Americans to get better goods more
cheaply and open up the Chinese market to American business.

Besides, union leadership is too politically dependent on the
Democrats to make much trouble. The largest labor unions are now made up
of public employees — government workers such as public school teachers
— whose leaders favor the Clinton globalist policy. They have little
interest in defending the freedom of Taiwan.

But the Republicans are the most divided of all. Internationalist
Republicans want Congress to extend most favored nation status to China,
but conservative and fundamentalist Republicans are still as
anti-communist as ever and not only want to defend Taiwan against
communist aggression, but also want to replace the entrenched communist
regime in China with something more democratic.

It is significant that the Business Round Table TV ad is trying to
characterize this battle as one between internationalists and
isolationists. These are the terms that have been used by
internationalists since 1918 to denigrate anyone who disagrees with
their plans for a new world order. There are no “isolationists” in
America. No conservative is against fair trade among nations. What
so-called isolationists fear is the erosion of national sovereignty, the
gradual surrender of our rights under our own Constitution to
international organizations run by faceless bureaucrats in Geneva and

That is why Pat Buchanan left the Republican Party and decided to run
as a third party candidate. He knew that the Republicans were too
divided and that the internationalists had the upper hand. Americans
were not being given a choice among the four major contenders during the
primaries. Bradley, a Rhodes scholar, and Gore are internationalists.
John McCain is an internationalist. Bush? He calls himself a “cautious
internationalist,” whatever that means. He is surrounded by advisors
from the Council on Foreign Relations. His backers realize that they
must tread lightly on this issue if they want to keep the Republican
Party unified in the election.

On education, Bush has no intention of getting rid of the Department
of Education. On the contrary, he intends to use the federal treasury to
“help” local governments improve education. The Republicans are now as
much a party of big government as the Democrats.

The question is: Why have conservatives failed to implement a truly
conservative agenda through the Republican Party? The answer is simple:
The power of the internationalists has increased so incredibly during
the last eight years, that conservatives can get nowhere at the levels
of power where major decisions are made. Conservatives can only succeed
in areas where they still have the freedom to do so. That’s in
education. Parents can still remove their children from public schools
and educate them at home.

However, if you want to know how and why the internationalists, who
represent a small elite in this country, have been able to gain so much
power, you must read Dennis Cuddy’s book, “Secret Records Revealed, The
Men, The Money & The Methods Behind the New World Order.” Dr. Cuddy
traces in simple chronological order the birth, growth and development
of the internationalist cabal. His documentation is impeccable and
astonishing. It’s a very sobering read. But it explains why
conservatives have been reduced to virtual impotence in our circles of
power. Dr. Cuddy’s book can be obtained by calling 800-652-1144.

Another book worth reading at this time is the late Malachi Martin’s
“The Keys of This Blood,” published in 1990. He wrote:

    Willing or not, ready or not, we are all involved in an all-out,
    no-holds-barred, three-way global competition. Most of us are not
    competitors, however. We are the stakes. For the competition is about
    who will establish the first one-world system of government that has
    ever existed in the society of nations. … No holds are barred because,
    once the competition has been decided, the world and all that’s in it —
    our way of life as individuals and as citizens of the nations; our
    families and our jobs; our trade and commerce and money; our educational
    systems and our religions and culture; even the badges of our national
    identity, which most of us have always taken for granted — all will
    have been powerfully and radically altered forever.

The three contenders are Christian civilization and culture, the
communists, and the New World Order of internationalist capitalism. For
Martin, the Catholic church embodied Christian values and culture. In
America, Christian fundamentalists share those Biblical values, and that
is why the attack on fundamentalists by John McCain was so significant.
In reality, the battle between internationalists and isolationists in
America is really a battle between secular humanism and Christianity.
That is why George W. Bush’s profession of faith in Jesus Christ has
created a bit of a problem for the secularists.

Things seem to be coming to a head. Paganism is rampant in America.
The public schools bar the teaching of Christian values, while four
million kids are on Ritalin. The new Internet technology is spreading
pornography across the globe. Children, reading about their own
president, are exposed to obscenities that destroy their innocence. It’s
difficult not to be a pessimist. But times are good. The malls are
crowded with shoppers. Cruise ships plow the seas with tanned
vacationers. Las Vegas is booming. But for how long? Something is
terribly amiss, and many of us feel it. Meanwhile, the Chinese
communists are consolidating their control over the Panama Canal. That’s
the big picture.
