Globalist CFR: G9 Committee Must Save “World Order” From Trump
Globalist CFR: G9 Committee Must Save “World Order” From Trump by Alex Newman – The New American
President Donald Trump, they say, seeks to “upend” their “liberal world order.” And so, the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations, a key Deep State institution behind the “world order” agenda, is calling for the creation of a new “Group of 9” (G9) committee to save the “rules-based world order” from Trump. Basically, the proposed coalition of nine powerful governments, which would include many of America’s close allies and even the emerging European Union super-state, would hold down the “global governance” fort until a pliable globalist can be placed back in the White House. The two authors of the proposed scheme, CFR members Ivo Daalder and James Lindsay, along with their comrades, have played lead roles in some of America’s greatest foreign policy blunders of recent decades. And yet, using dishonesty and deception, they make the case for preserving and even expanding this CFR-backed “World Order” that Americans and humanity increasingly oppose. If Trump plays his cards right, however, he can foil their globalist plot and save constitutional government.
Calling their scheme a “Committee to Save the World Order,” the dynamic globalist duo argued in CFR mouthpiece Foreign Affairs that Trump was working to “upend” their precious “world order.” “He has raised doubts about Washington’s security commitments to its allies, challenged the fundamentals of the global trading regime, abandoned the promotion of freedom and democracy as defining features of U.S. foreign policy, and abdicated global leadership,” the two claimed, assuming readers would agree with U.S. government policing of the world and submission to a globalist “trading regime” that undermines American independence, prosperity, and self-government. They lament that, contrary to the hopes of some — Obama even left a note in the Oval Office urging his successor “to sustain the international order” — Trump did not abandon his campaign promises and embrace a more “traditional” (read: globalist, militarist, and hyper-interventionist) so-called foreign policy.
Basically, the globalist screed complains that Trump refused to bow to CFR demands and defy the will of the American people. Instead, they whine, Trump went on to withdraw from the CFR-backed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a pseudo-“free trade” regime that would have surrendered U.S. sovereignty to what then-Senator Jeff Sessions described as a European Union-style “Pacific Union” — a union in which America’s vote would be equal to the votes of communist and Islamic dictators. (Parts of TPP have been resurrected in the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement negotiated by CFR member Robert Lighthizer.) The Foreign Affairs piece also bemoans Trump’s announcement that the U.S. government would be withdrawing from the United Nations Paris agreement on “climate change,” a pseudo-treaty never ratified by the Senate that would undermine what’s left of the U.S. economy, empower China and the world order, all while doing next to nothing to help the environment. The two globalists complain about the withdrawal from the CFR-backed Iran deal, too, as well as Trump’s questions about NATO.
