Here is a chillingly prophetic piece dating from January 7, 2009. Think back, for a minute, to those days after Obama had been elected but before he'd been inaugurated... those days of "The Office of the President-Elect" and the cheap-imitation presidential seal... And then, only 25 days after this piece was written, Obama was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize -- after being in office less than two weeks. I never saw this article at the time. As I read it today, I got goosebumps -- and not the good kind -- as I compared what we know now with what people such as Henry Kissinger were thinking 29 months ago as they looked forward to the age of "hope and change"....
WASHINGTON, DC, January 7, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In an interview with CNBC Monday, former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said that President-Elect Barack Obama’s most important, or defining task would be the creation of "a new world order."
"The president-elect is coming into office at a moment when there is upheaval in many parts of the world simultaneously," said Kissinger.
"Upheaval," he says. Isn't that cute? And that was before Greece went up in flames, Spain erupted in protests, Hezbollah dug in near Tijuana, Mexico descended into total chaos, North Korea sank a South Korean ship and attacked one of their islands, the Deepwater Horizon oil well blew out, China (or someone) test-fired a missile off the coast of Los Angeles, a Muslim U.S. Army doctor massacred soldiers at Ft. Hood, Iran started building missile bases in Venezuela, Christian churches got burned down everywhere from Iraq to Egypt, Mubarak got ousted, Iranian protesters got slaughtered in the streets, Libyan protesters got slaughtered in the streets, Syrian protesters got slaughtered in the streets, Bahraini protesters.... you know the rest. Kissinger continues:
"You have India, Pakistan; you have the jihadist movement. So he [Obama] can’t really say there is one problem, that it’s the most important one. But he can give new impetus to American foreign policy partly because the reception of him is so extraordinary around the world. [Right, Henry. Especially from the queen of England. And the prime minister of Israel. And French president Sarkozy.] 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."
Some commentators have suggested that the highly escalated conflicts in the Middle East and the world financial crisis have made the time ripe for a long-anticipated and foreshadowed “New World Order" to come to fruition. Celebrated Canadian author Michael O’Brien, who has written extensively on the ‘new world order,’ spoke with LifeSiteNews.com about Kissinger’s statement.
"Only in one sense is Kissinger’s analysis correct," said O’Brien. "The current world situation is presently one of a multitude of crises and at the same time a moment of opportunity. However, positing a leap towards what he calls a ‘new world order’ is fraught with difficulties.
“What does the term mean? In all likelihood it can only mean an imposed top-down global social-political revolution. In other words, solutions would then come from a reigning authority over all nations putting aside individual conscience and principles of national self-determination."
O’Brien added: "A true and healthy order in the human community can only arise from an internal revolution of the moral order. It cannot be imposed without imposing greater ills. In all likelihood, Kissinger and like-minded globalists, see the present world configuration as a creative disintegration which would usher in a new form of world government. In such a situation, management by crisis overrides authentic exercise of human freedom and responsibility."
Because the real agenda of the one-world control freaks revolves around global population control, pro-lifers have long been ahead of the game in recognizing the core dynamic of the globalists.
For pro-life advocates, the proposal of a ‘new world order’ has been linked to the anti-life principles promoted at the United Nations. Pope Benedict, while still a Cardinal, expounded on this matter in the introduction to a book published in 1997. Then-Cardinal Ratzinger wrote the preface to a book by Michel Schooyans, entitled “The Gospel: Confronting World Disorder.
...Ratzinger first denounces the "new world order" describing it as more or less a culmination of Marxism. He goes on to say that a Christian is "obliged to protest" against it.
Now, Christian protest, if it is truly Christian, will have a different character than Leftist/secular protests -- both in what we advocate, and in how we advocate it. In my opinion, the starting point for every citizen who is a Christian should be signing the Manhattan Declaration of Christian Conscience.
As we stand for our principles in the political sphere, we need to always remember that the root problem is spiritual in nature, and that is where the real war must be fought, both within ourselves as individuals, and within the culture: "an internal revolution of the moral order," in Michael O'Brien's wise words.
The world-government control freaks and their initiatives, from the United Nations to the Bilderberg Group, from Agenda 21 to the Millennium Goals, represent a mind-set that, far from being limited to the Kissingers of the world conferring in dark-paneled rooms, is right out in the open and pervades our public life. That mind-set is materialism -- the unspoken assumption that man is nothing more than an evolved combination of chemicals, therefore any individual life is worth little to nothing, and the great masses of human beings should be managed by their self-appointed "superiors."
If there is no soul, if all that exists is what we see with our eyes, then why not have government-forced abortions in America, as Obama's science czar, John Holdren, has advocated? If an individual life is worth nothing, then why not impose social conformity by "eliminating" 25 million Americans in "re-education camps," as Obama's friend Bill Ayers and his Weather Underground terror group once discussed?
It's quite telling that Saul Alinsky, the father of "community organizing," dedicated his book to Lucifer, a.k.a. Satan. You may recall that when Jesus was tempted in the desert, one of the temptations Satan proffered was global rule -- worldly power -- the only kind of power that an Alinsky, a Kissinger, or an Obama seems to recognize. But Jesus did not choose that kind of power. He chose -- and enables every one of us to choose -- the power of self-giving love. And that is the only power that can change the world for the better.
