Neo-Con ‘Global Democracy’ Scheme Advancing

Republicans Showing Signs of Support for New World Order

By Michael Collins Piper

A number of recent developments at the highest levels of policymaking in Washington indicate that the push for “global democracy” — a new way of describing what has generally been known as the “New World Order” — is very much under way.

What is particularly intriguing is that many grassroots Americans who have been longtime critics of the concept of a New World Order are now rallying behind it, largely because a Republican president is promoting the scheme in the guise of advancing “liberty.” This gives real meaning to the biblical admonition to be wary of wolves in sheep’s clothing.

President George W. Bush launched the drive for retooling the planet in his Jan. 20 inaugural address, which was drafted in consultation with Israeli cabinet minister Natan Sharansky. Sharansky has been touted favorably by the media as an “authority” and “expert” on democracy ever since Sharansky released a book entitled The Case for Democracy, a volume that may have the distinction of being the only book Bush has read since he squeaked by at Yale.

One of the first official actions in favor of the new policy promoting global revolution came when the president announced that he was promoting Sharansky’s longtime close personal friend, Elliot Abrams, from the staff of the National Security Council to the post of deputy national security advisor. In that position, the president announced, Abrams would be in charge of “global democracy strategy.”

Perhaps best known for having been convicted for his part as a State Department official enmeshed in the now-infamous Iran-contra scandal during the Reagan administration — a scandal that more appropriately should have been called the Iran-Israel-contra affair, considering Israel’s central, though largely hushed-up role in the matter, Abrams was later pardoned by former President George H. W. Bush. However, Abrams’s personal and political connections are most illustrative of where the primary interests of the so-called “democracy czar” really lie.

Abrams is not only an outspoken top-line figure in the pro-Israel “neo-conservative” bloc that played the instrumental role in guiding the United States into the debacle in Iraq, but he is also the son-in-law of Norman Podhoretz, the self-styled “ex-Trotskyite” communist who is one of the founding fathers of the neo-conservative network.

Podhoretz served for many years as editor of Commentary, the magazine voice of the American Jewish Committee in New York.


Abrams is considered somewhat controversial for having expressed harsh opposition to intermarriage between Christians and Jews, a position echoing not only the policies laid forth by the German Third Reich but which also ironically seems to reflect the thinking of many American Jewish organizations.

Perhaps Abrams’s most auspicious association was his affiliation with the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a pressure group founded by William Kristol, editor of the neo-conservative Weekly Standard, published by billionaire Rupert Murdoch, chief of the Fox News propaganda empire. PNAC is best recalled as having proclaimed, just prior to the 9-11 terrorist attacks, that a “new Pearl Harbor” was necessary in order to inflame Americans into supporting U.S. intervention around the globe.


In the meantime, as part of the overall plan for promoting the new global agenda, the president has named another of Abrams’s neo-conservative allies, John R. Bolton, now serving as under secretary of state for arms control and international security, as United States ambassador to the United Nations.

Bolton is not Jewish — contrary to misinformation circulating on the Internet. However, he is very much a hard-line advocate for Israel, even having served on the board of advisors of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), which was founded by Stephen J. Bryen, a former Reagan administration Defense Department official, who was once investigated by the FBI on charges of espionage for Israel.

In addition, Bolton was also part of PNAC, making his neo-conservative bona fides beyond question. For his own part, Bolton brags that one of his greatest accomplishments, during his previous diplomatic career, was having played a key role in working to force the United Nations to drop its longstanding resolution that Zionism was a form of racism.

Bolton’s appointment comes on the heels of the president’s nomination of Robert Zoellick, another hard-line supporter of Israel, as deputy secretary of state under Condoleezza Rice. Washington insiders view Zoellick as the real power behind “Condi’s” throne, directing policy.

A longtime member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the New York-based affiliate of the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London, which is funded by the
Rothschild banking empire, Zoellick — who formerly served as U.S. trade representative in the Bush administration — has also been an advisor to Goldmann Sachs.

Many grassroots Americans who have
been longtime critics of the concept of
a New World Order are now rallying
behind it, largely because a Republican
president is promoting the scheme in
the guise of advancing “liberty.”

At the State Department, Zoellick will have a valuable ally in Elizabeth Cheney, a young attorney with previous diplomatic experience, who just happens to be the daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney. The president recently named Miss Cheney as deputy assistant secretary of state in charge of Middle East affairs.

However, because the office of assistant secretary (which ranks just below the office of secretary of state) is currently vacant, Miss Cheney will actually be acting assistant secretary, and therefore effectively running the bureau. Her views reflect those of her father, who has also been associated with both JINSA and PNAC, which have assumed massive influence within the national security policy apparatus in Washington.

The fact that Abrams, Bolton, Zoellick and Miss Cheney are now ensconced in such primary power positions puts paid to the theory — put forth by many Republican loyalists — that “the neo-conservatives are on their way out.” Instead, the neo-conservatives are very much in control in the second Bush administration, perhaps more than ever.

Meanwhile, lending their legislative support to the Sharansky-Bush “democracy” scheme on Capitol Hill are two of the leading congressional voices for Israel and the neo-conservative network, Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.).

McCain and Lieberman have now introduced a so-called “Advance Democracy Act,” which, if enacted, will spend a projected $300 million to push the administration’s policy. Among other things, the act will create a so-called “Democracy Promotion Advisory Board” that will “provide outside expertise to the U.S. government.” It takes very little guesswork to divine what special interests will have their representatives named to such a board.

A companion measure to the McCain-Lieberman bill has also been introduced in the House of Representatives by Reps. Tom Lantos (D-Calif.) and Frank Wolf (R-Va.).
One of the primary legal brains behind the drafting of the McCain-Lieberman legislation was Michael Horowitz of the Hudson Research Institute.

A law professor and attorney who is often published in neo-conservative journals, Horowitz has served as special counsel to the National Council of Young Israel, an organization that says it was founded to “combat the wave of assimilation” by Jews who were eager to become an integral part of the American social fabric.

In addition, Horowitz has also been a major behind-the-scenes figure in cementing the now-solid political ties between hard-line pro-Israel lobby groups and the so-called “Christian right” led by such figures as Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Tim LaHaye and others.

They are promoting the theme of “global democracy,” which is actually a new name for a very old agenda, that of the New World Order. However, because this group and their ideological allies happen to be Republicans and call themselves “conservatives” (in order to hide their agenda), many genuine grass-roots patriots have been taken in and now support the Bush administration’s globalist policies.
