Hi, That's good, can you have a go at this one as well..


Thanks

Steve

What's to debunk? It's genuine quotes. The "New World Order" was Bush's favorite phrase in 1991 to 1992, he was talking about the change in the world due to the democratization of the former communist states, the first Gulf War, and other changes in Europe. You can read the full speeches here:

I'd recommend you actually read some before asking what they mean.

The speech in the video is this:
http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=19222

I had hoped that when the United States Congress, in historic debate, took its resolute action, Saddam would realize he could not prevail and would move out of Kuwait in accord with the United Nation resolutions. He did not do that. Instead, he remained intransigent, certain that time was on his side.

Saddam was warned over and over again to comply with the will of the United Nations: Leave Kuwait, or be driven out. Saddam has arrogantly rejected all warnings. Instead, he tried to make this a dispute between Iraq and the United States of America.

Well, he failed. Tonight, 28 nations -- countries from 5 continents, Europe and Asia, Africa, and the Arab League -- have forces in the Gulf area standing shoulder to shoulder against Saddam Hussein. These countries had hoped the use of force could be avoided. Regrettably, we now believe that only force will make him leave.

Prior to ordering our forces into battle, I instructed our military commanders to take every necessary step to prevail as quickly as possible, and with the greatest degree of protection possible for American and allied service men and women. I've told the American people before that this will not be another Vietnam, and I repeat this here tonight. Our troops will have the best possible support in the entire world, and they will not be asked to fight with one hand tied behind their back. I'm hopeful that this fighting will not go on for long and that casualties will be held to an absolute minimum.

This is an historic moment. We have in this past year made great progress in ending the long era of conflict and cold war. We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order -- a world where the rule of law, not the law of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we are successful -- and we will be -- we have a real chance at this new world order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the U.N.'s founders.

We have no argument with the people of Iraq. Indeed, for the innocents caught in this conflict, I pray for their safety. Our goal is not the conquest of Iraq. It is the liberation of Kuwait. It is my hope that somehow the Iraqi people can, even now, convince their dictator that he must lay down his arms, leave Kuwait, and let Iraq itself rejoin the family of peace-loving nations.

Again he's talking about the changes resulting from the fall of the Soviet Union.

Cause he is, what about the other world leaders who have touted this phrase, Problem here is that what used to be conspiracy is now fact #. I suppose you are entitled to your oppinions as I am, thanks for your time..

...what about the other world leaders who have touted this phrase...

It's always in the same context as the point of this thread, and the George H. W. Bush example.

Here is a short YT video clip that misquotes President Obama, in the headline. This is rather typical of the conspiracy "theory" promoters:



And, the "NWO theory" as presented by the "believers" makes little sense, because it isn't exactly covert, if every prominent politician or world leader uses the phrase. Again, it's about context. And phrasing. And punctuation.

Like, "Let's eat, Grandma" is an entirely different context when you remove that little comma.....;)

In a statement, Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.) called the move “consistent with other efforts the U.S. and our allies are making to promote a free and open Internet, and to preserve and advance the current multi-stakeholder model of global Internet governance.” is that the same as this then ??

No. It's actually about decentralization. As the internet has historically been ruled by the US. While the US loses some power here, it had ALL the power before. It would be like if Texas were in charge of all the electricity in the US.
 


O my God you didn't by into the crap they told you did you?

Let me explain why the NWO he was talking about is the NWO you think(You know about Global powers controlling the world)He said he wanted a new world order envisioned by the "UN".What kind of new world order are they going to bring?!They are the ones who invented Agenda 21,the people who push for gun control,the people who love drones,the people Ted Turner funded $1 billion dollars back in 99'!And Ted Turner is the guy thinks the world is overpopulated.You got the Rockefellers funding the UN also and they like Bush talk about a new world order.

Stick to facts and follow the money.Look at what's happening in the world at this time.We're losing more rights every day.Gun registration in CT?It's coming and you people are veering people like Steve off the subject.When the NWO gets here you are all going to look very foolish.We are spied on by our own government!All this stuff is nothing huh?

Steve go to you tube and check out TeamWakeEmUP and Mark Dice videos to get real facts.

Do you have any evidence to support your claims?
 
no, its just you trying to connect disparate dots of lies, innuendos, half truths and meme-biased "facts".

Haha!You people are such shills!
"You're connecting disparate dots"
No I'm not.Bush and these other's say they want a new world order ruled over and envisioned by the UN so I'm showing what the UN does and wants.Now would you like to live in a "New World" envisioned by these people?

Your denial is disturbing.But that just shows that you are a shill.

So we had all of our phone records spied on,all of our E-Mails spied on and had our gun rights attacked to make us defenseless?I don't think so.

I am not condoning surveillance...but its not new. its not evidence of anything more than the govt collecting data- The fact that you jump from that to the NWO says more about your biases than actual facts or evidence?

As for guns- sorry...your "gun rights" have not been attacked- Guns are still widely available to almost all citizens. I trust you are stockpiling.

of course, when you start to attack the person and make it personal, you lose all credibility.

Good luck with that.
 
I'm not attacking you.You are fine.But you are in denial.Your blatant diversion from my points shows that A)you are in denial B)you deny for fun or C)You are a shill.

It was clear from your very first post that you would eventually degenerate into infantile name calling. It's the direction most conspiracy theorists take when they have no coherent argument other than their own bias driven interpretation.

If "The Government:eek:" or their sneaky pals do decide to come for you they won't be giving you the heads up in a series of speeches!

"Conspiracy is no more..."??

No, actually there are certainly plenty of conspiracies afoot at any given moment ( ever seen HBO's "Game of Thrones"? ;) )

I know...fiction. But, joking aside. The point is that Humans WILL "conspire" in some ways and shapes, it's in our nature (it seems). The trick is to separate the wheat from the chaff, to use a colorful metaphor.

'Shudder!' What a frightening thought! I'm going to have nightmares tonight.

You do know Texas has it's own power grid separate from the rest of the U.S.? I have lived here for 35 years and experienced about the same amount of interruption during that length of time as I did during my 2 years in California as a Marine.
We are one of the fastest growing States with 3 of the top ten fastest-growing cities in the country. I would argue our political diversity is beyond that of other States due to the controls each City is afforded by our State Constitution. If you are liberal leaning you move to Austin or San Antonio, where they have strict gun laws for example. If you like a diversity of political ideas and cultures mixed together you move to Houston for that urban mixture. If making money and embracing capitalism is more your style we have Dallas. Then there are all the little towns in between. I am not sure why so many educated people who are knowledgeable enough to second guess conspiracy theories are so eager to accept false conceptions and rumors about a State they have probably never visited.
To understand Texans attitudes toward Federal Government you have to have an understand our Strong belief in the Tenth Amendment. Many here believe each State should have the right to do as it's people see fit through electing officials to carry out their wishes. So for example if you want to be a welfare state and have no guns or even keep guns out of your State through interstate travel, then so be it, just don't ask other States to pay for your programs. Let each State decide for itself and time will pick the winners. How wonderful would it be to have a choice of 50 States to pick from depending on your preference? I would think it much better than a one size fits all approach taken by a Federal Government that has noway of knowing what is best for over 300 million individuals.

No....I did not. And, sorry for being a snick but...sometimes the apostrophe is over-used...."it's" is the contraction of two words, "it" and "is".

The pronoun "its" needs no apostrophe. Common mistake.

NOW, with that behind me.....Texas (I'm rather familiar with much of its culture)....I have found, in my travels, that Austin is my favorite city in that State of our Union....San Antonio being my second fave.

I also am well aware of some of the fierce, fierce devotion by devotees of the State of Texas. I cheer all of them on, IN that devotion. I grew up in California, and lived through many disparaging remarks about my State (often, from residents of Texas) who referred to CA as "The Land of Fruits and Nuts".

So....am I biased? I try not to be....but, I am also worldly enough to know that one CANNOT judge based solely on some stupid common stereotype...although this does (unfortunately) tend to prevail, in Human society, all too often.

No....I did not. And, sorry for being a snick but...




I am definitely biased, but that is healthy. You should love where you live. I was not making an argument for Texas being better, whether I believe it or not. I was simply trying to clear up any misconceived notions that we are all rednecks with armadillos for dogs. California was great, of course I was there as Military, so my experience would not be the same as a permanent resident ( I got to play with guns).
This is a perfect example of why the 10th Amendment is so important. People can pick a State based on what they perceive as politically correct, instead of forcing every State to fit in the same box.
California can melt down all the guns, and offer all the social programs it wants, and in Texas we can all shoot each other, but seriously you get my point. What do we have to loose?

Are you still saying his meaning of the New world order wasn't as we know it, That his intent was just a world of peace?

In the speech that you commented on, he states that the laws will govern nations. Not guidelines for nations. His work over seas wasn't and didnt stop socialism or change anything except to allow the few nations that aren't willing to give up their control. The middle east has been pushing the idea of going back to a gold standard in which, if you want oil, you'll pay in gold. Eventually they would be the main and or the sole owners of gold. No nation wants that, and the true powers in the world (Bankers) would lose power. We can see now what one Billionaire (Soros) has done to the United states by pushing money in front of the people who he wants to do his bidding. A large percentage of the protesters in the last 3 years were paid to protest. All of this was done in the idea of global peace???

I'm saying that his meaning of "New World Order" was whatever the world was going to be like after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

What he personally wanted that world to be like is a topic open to speculation.

According to this conspiracy theory website, there are five archived speeches where President Bush mentioned "new world order":
What is at stake is more than one small country; it is a big idea: a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind–peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law. [...] The world can, therefore, seize this opportunity to fulfill the long-held promise of a new world order, where brutality will go unrewarded and aggression will meet collective resistance.

Address Before a Joint Session of the Congress on the State of the Union, 29 January 1991

...I wanted to speak to you today about the new world taking shape around us, about the prospects for a new world order now within our reach. For more than four decades we've lived in a world divided East from West, a world locked in a conflict of arms and ideas called the cold war. Two systems, two superpowers separated by mistrust and unremitting hostility. For more than four decades, America's energies were focused on containing the threat to the free world from the forces of communism. That war is over.

Remarks at Maxwell Air Force Base War College in Montgomery, Alabama, April 13, 1991

We have in this past year made great progress in ending the long era of conflict and cold war. We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a new world order–a world where the rule of law, not the law of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we are successful–and we will be–we have a real chance at this new world order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the U.N.’s founders.

Address to the Nation Announcing Allied Military Action in the Persian Gulf, January 16, 1991

Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective -- a new world order -- can emerge: a new era -- freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, East and West, North and South, can prosper and live in harmony. A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor. Today that new world is struggling to be born, a world quite different from the one we've known. A world where the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle. A world in which nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice. A world where the strong respect the rights of the weak.

Address Before a Joint Session of the Congress on the Persian Gulf Crisis and the Federal Budget Deficit, September 11, 1990

Ours is a generation to finally see the emergence of promising, exciting new world order which we've sought for generations. And we are witness to the first demonstration of this new partnership for peace: a united world response to Iraq's aggressive ambition.

And so, the U.N. and the United States and the Soviet Union and countries across the globe have issued with one voice these unequivocal demands: One, Iraq must withdraw totally and immediately from Kuwait. Two, Iraq must restore Kuwait's legitimate government. And three, Iraq must free all hostages in both countries. Humanity itself will tolerate nothing less.

Remarks at a Fundraising Luncheon for Gubernatorial Candidate Pete Wilson in San Francisco, California September 19, 1990

To summarise Bush's vision of the new world order:
  • more peace
  • more security
  • more freedom
  • the rule of law, not the law of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations
  • brutality goes unrewarded
  • aggression meets collective resistance
  • nations draw together in common cause
  • nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice
  • the strong respect the rights of the weak
  • freer from the threat of terror
  • stronger in the pursuit of justice
  • all nations of the world can prosper and live in harmony
Doesn't sound like such a bad place to live. :)
