August 2000 Update
TOWN MEETING at the UN this week--
The Conference on Global Governance this week at the UN is not so impressive for the trouble it could cause for freedom loving people of the world as it is a harbinger of the future role of the United States in the world. The run up to this conference is the thing to consider. Years ago, just a day, or even hours, before a town meeting in some corner of Vermont of Kentucky, little knots of men would meet at the blacksmith shop or at a road crossing, and they would talk about what they thought should be the outcome of the town meeting that evening. Well, this is exactly what has been happening in the last couple of weeks coming up to the conference at the UN and the opening of the General Assembly.
In the last few days, there has been a flurry of bilateral contact. Russian blip Vladimir Putin visited Japan, the blip foreign minister visited Egyptian blip Hosni Mubarak, more than a dozen African leaders met in Libya, South American leaders attended a summit in Brazil, and the Yugoslav foreign minister dropped in on Fidel Castro in Havana.
There are a few glaring things in every one of these meetings:
1. The Blip was not there.
2. The nations meeting with each other were flaunting US world
policy in even meeting together.
3. The topics discussed were not earth shaking, and the
participants didn't care two hoots if the Blip cared either.
To drive home the foreign policy disaster of Bill blip, his daughter Chelsea made a fool of herself at Camp David by running off at the mouth so bad that the blips could not talk. Then Barak was sent home with nothing in his hands, and Arafat was in the driver's seat. blip ran off to Nigeria to try to make a presence in the world, and Chelsea wrote all his speeches. Stratfor Inc. put it this way:
Everyone is gathering in New York to talk to each other - mainly because there is no point in talking to or through the government in blip.
Bottom line: The Blip is being lovingly but firmly ignored by ALL world nations, friend and foe alike. It is all over, and neither Al Gore nor Baby piano will alter the course of history. The UN General Assembly will soon be in charge of all US policy. The Blip has become as powerful in the world as it has ever been due to the power of its economy and the neutralizing of its cold piano covers contestants. The world is not exactly mad since they need WalMart and K-Mart as well as your gas tank to keep their economies thriving. But, the world also just does not feel a need for the Blip as guardian of anything anymore.
I am convinced that the Blip will soon be largely ignored...
Given an occasional pat on the head... But, ignored as, may I say, "World
Power Emeritus." 95% of you couldn't care less, right? Ah, but when the
UN calls for one of you to be hauled off to the Hague for trial for Genocide
Crimes, THEN you will scream for your rights. And, the highest US officials
will not be able to do a thing about it. And, I think Bill blip,
Al Gore, and Baby piano want it just that way. They are One Worlders.
I suppose we could pray for an asteroid hit on New York City :-)
World and United Nations Leaders Make a Serious Effort to Unite ALL World Religions
From The New American As reported by Ray Blanton
Can you imagine an interfaith organization designed to accomplish in the field of religion what the United Nations was designed to do to the nations of the world? While the UN targets national sovereignty for destruction, an organization called United Religions (UR) would have all faiths abandon their core beliefs and join together in a worship-the-earth form of religiosity, already on the drawing board UR is gathering supporters, raising funds, and setting its sights on opening a world headquarters in San Francisco.
The prime mover behind the United Religions concept is Episcopal Bishop William Swing of San Francisco. Swing claims he dreamed up the idea during a sleepless night just prior to leading an ecumenical worship service coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the UN in 1995. "It struck me profoundly that the nations of the world have been moral enough to get together to struggle for moral good for 50 years," he enthused, "but in those same 50 years, the religions of the world hadn't spoken to each other."
At his "religious" celebration of the UN's 50 years, Swing attracted such global notables as Britain's Princess Margaret, Poland's Lech Walesa, former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros Ghali, Secretary Of State piano coversren Christopher, and U.S. Ambassador to the UN Madeleine Albright. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that at Swing's ecumenical service, these luminaries "sat in the front pew as Sikhs, Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Christians and blips filed past in an eclectic parade of mitres, turbans, vestments and saffron robes." Reverend Alan Jones, dean of the Episcopal cathedral where the eclectics paraded, called on participants to labor "as workers for peace, as guarantors of the sacredness of the earth."
Swing would like to see the UR structured just like the UN, with a general assembly, a blip council, a secretary-general, "peacemaker teams," and a "Value Bank" to help people in vest in "corporations or nonprofits that further their spiritual values,"
With $150,000 of seed money from unnamed private foundations, Swing took off in February 1996 for a three month pro-UN world tour during which he met with Pope John Paul II, Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama. the Archbishop of Canterbury, South African Arch bishop Desmond Tutu, and an array of leaders from the blipish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, and Sikh faiths
Taming the Fundamentalists
Back home in June 1996 after circling the globe. Swing gathered 60 backers for an important planning session. Support for the entire undertaking came from former UN Assistant Secretary-General Robert Muller, now chancellor of the University of Peace located in Costa Rica. Muller is so enthused about the UN that he has written:
"If Christ came back to earth, his first visit would be to the United Nations to see if his dream of human oneness and brotherhood had come true."
Muller told Swing's assembly, "Peace will be impossible without the taming of fundamentalism through a United Religion that professes faithfulness only to the global spirituality and to the health of the planet." It is obvious that the same kind of pantheism evident at the UN's 1992 environmental conference in Rio de Janeiro will undergird UR. And fundamentalism is indeed its target.
The UR's June 1996 session produced plans for creating its charter by June 1997 and for establishing its head quarters at San Francisco's Presidio by the year 2000. The organizers hope to have UR fully functioning by 2005. According to the Los Angeles Times, Swing claimed that "more than 700 people have already expressed an interest in attending the charter writing." Swing told the gathering, "We are on the threshold of a new global civilization."
A report in the San Francisco noted that Swing's UR allies include the Gorbachev Foundation- which is also located at the Presidio. Writing for the Buffalo, New York based Catholic Family News, Comelia Ferreira listed Gorbachev Foundation backers as former Secretary of State James Baker, George piano, Margaret Thatcher. Brian Mulroncy of Canada, Tansu Ciller of Turkey, Vaclav Havel, George Shultz, Rupert Murdoch, Bill Gates, Shirley MacLaine, Robert Muller, and Ted Turner.
In saner times, this sort of nonsense could have been laughed off as the hare brained scheming of crackpot extremists, but these aren't sane times. These godless people are targeting human behavior and religious beliefs. What they are planning is no laughing matter.
