One-Worlders: The 'ethic' of the Left
Thursday, March 2, 2006
George Soros is a one-worlder. John Bolton is not.
That's why organizations connected to the billionaire backer of world government and taxes undertook a campaign against Mr. Bolton's nomination as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
Robert Creamer and Linda Saucedo of the Strategic Consulting Group -- a leading Democrat consulting firm -- were hired to fight Bolton's nomination. Their clients were the Open Society Institute and The Open Society Policy Center.
Both were established by Mr. Soros and apparently had not sufficient qualms about hiring Mr. Creamer, then under indictment in a multimillion-dollar check-kiting case. He later pleaded guilty.
We can't be certain of the effect of this anti-Bolton lobbying. But Bolton's nomination went to the floor 10-8 along party lines and without recommendation. A Democrat filibuster prevented a floor vote. President Bush gave Bolton a recess appointment.
The so-called "culture of corruption" that Democrats contend is Republican-created cuts another way.
And not exactly how you might think. The chief corruption is the Left's mollycoddling of a United Nations stained by oil and sex scandals. That's the ethic the Left brings to "world government."
