Skip to comments.Kissinger, Putin, and the "New World Order"
Posted on 01/10/2009 7:45:47 AM PST by standingfirm
Rahm Emanuel, President-elect Barack Obama's chief of staff, has declared that "you don't ever want a crisis to go to waste." As reported here yesterday, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has been busy lately promoting the idea that Obama should move quickly once in the White House to turn various economic and political crises into opportunities to create a "new world order." (The words are Kissinger's.)
Kissinger, never one to let a crisis got to waste, has been busy on an important new-world-order project in Russia with Vladimir Putin. Although it has gone virtually unreported in the U.S. media, Kissinger has been featured prominently in the Russian media during his many trips over the past decade to Moscow to meet with Putin and Yevgeny Primakov, the former KGB terror master for the Soviet Union in the Middle East. In 2007, Kissinger and Primakov were appointed by Putin to co-chair a bilateral "working group" of Russian and American political insiders to tackle issues such as global terrorism, nuclear proliferation, and nuclear threats.
Novosti, the Russian "news" agency run by Putin-friendly apparatchiks, reported on the new working group in an April 26, 2007 story, noting that "Kissinger, U.S. secretary of state from 1973 to 1977, has been a frequent guest in Russia since Putin took office in 2000."
A Novosti story on July 13, 2007 reported on Kissinger's "closed door" meeting with Putin, Primakov, and a delegation of former U.S. officials at Putin's presidential residence. The Novosti article, along with multiple photos of the event, contrasted sharply with the absence of any coverage of the conference by the major U.S. media, which should have been on top of such a meeting of world leaders and should have let the American public know about it. Accompanying Kissinger were: former Secretary of State George Shultz; former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin; former Special Representative for Arms Control, Nonproliferation and Disarmament Ambassador Thomas Graham, Jr.; former Senator Sam Nunn; and Chevron Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David O'Reilly. All of the Kissinger-led U.S. team, save for O'Reilly, are high-level members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), lending credence to the belief that this is actually a project of the CFR, the premier organization pushing for a new world order for much of the past century.
Like Kissinger, the CFR and its publication Foreign Affairs also refer explicitly to a "new world order"; for a couple of examples, click here and here.
In December, Kissinger was back in Russia meeting with President Dmitry Medvedev, Putin's protégé. Again, no coverage in the U.S. media, though the Russian press considered it newsworthy. Russia Today, a Novosti subsidiary, reported: "While waiting for the Russian president, Henry Kissinger had been chatting with Evgeny Primakov, Russia's former foreign minister." Primakov now heads the Russian Chamber of Commerce, a post that experienced intelligence analysts see as the perfect cover to continue his intelligence functions for the KGB-FSB during his numerous trips to abroad, especially to the Middle East, where he meets with leaders of many of the terror regimes he supported in the Soviet era.
Kissinger and his fellow globalists at the Council on Foreign Relations never seem to be discomfited working with the leaders of totalitarian regimes. Indeed, they seem to have the most cordial of relations with one another. They do not seem to be concerned that the Putin-Medvedev regime has been brutally suppressing all dissent and opposition and killing those who refuse to yield to the suppression. Even "mainstream" media like the BBC have noted that under Putin, the KGB's power and influence have increased to unprecedented heights.
In an article entitled, "KGB influence 'soars under Putin'" the BBC reported:
Four out of five political leaders and state administrators in Russia either have been or still are members of the security services, a study suggests.
The unprecedented research implies a huge expansion of KGB-FSB influence in politics and business in recent years.
Many of the officials concerned have been appointed under President Vladimir Putin himself a former spy chief....
Among the presidential administration, members of the government, deputies of both chambers of parliament, regional heads, as well as the boards of Russia's top state corporations, four in five officials worked for the KGB, or continue to work for one or more of its successor organizations.
Readers of The New American are not surprised by this, as we have been reporting on the continuation of the Soviet communist program under the supposed "reform" government of Russia over the past two decades. However, to Kissinger and the new-world-order cheerleaders at the Council on Foreign Relations, Putin's "democratic deficit" (or Hu Jintao's in China) is a triviality that should not be allowed to stand in the way of East-West "convergence," with the final goal being world government under an expanded and fully empowered United Nations.
The convergence strategy was, perhaps, most nakedly explained by Ford Foundation President H. Rowan Gaither (a Council on Foreign Relations member), who admitted to congressional investigator Norman Dodd in 1953 that he and others inside and outside of government were working "to so alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union." (See William H. McIlhany, The Tax-Exempt Foundations (Arlington House, 1980), pp. 60-61.)
Putin, Primakov, and Medvedev, along with Kissinger and his U.S. confreres, appear to be working toward the same objective announced by Gaither more than 50 years ago.

Did R.Emanuel mean manufactured crisis?
This is just pure kook conspiracy theory. No sane person actually believes that Kissinger exists. /sarc
World government sounds like a great idea. Assumimg, of course, it fully adopts the US Constitution.
The left consistantly uses the language of war and crisis (except against actual enemies) to create the need for their “leadership” and to increase the power of the fed. This has been pointed out many times, by many different conservative writers and thinkers. “The sky is falling” is something we have all become inured to.
Kissinger said, “I firmly believe dat Barack Obama is just da man to create dis order.”
Interesting. This had to have had the active cooperation of the Bush administration. I wonder what else Bush was up to here, behind the scenes.
Kissinger is scum. Commie capitulating-loving scum.
I’m not sure if it did need administration approval. CFR is a private entity. Kissinger is a private citizen. Why Kissinger would want to meet and cozy with the likes of Putin is beyond me. Must be getting paid well.

Obamas Agenda for Change and the 2009 Summit of the Americas
'Yes We Can' Change for the Americas Coming from Below
Hemispheric resistance to the first attempt by the U.S. to force the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) on every nation on this continent led to its eventual defeat at the IV Summit of the Americas, held in Argentina in 2005. The organizers of the April 2009 V Summit of the Americas had hoped to focus on a social agenda of providing a decent living for all those who call the Americas their home. The emergence of the PPA, or Bushs Plan B for the FTAA, represents a threat to the urgent need of having all nations in the hemisphere focus on tackling the disparities that make the region the most unequeal in the world.
According to Obama, what's good for the people of the Americas is good for the United States. Among the specific proposals Obama has made (political freedom and democracy; freedom from fear and security; freedom from want and opportunity) in the New Partnership for the Americas document, he says that its time for a new alliance of the Americas that leaves behind eight years of failed policies and top down reforms, and puts forward instead an agenda that advances democracy, security, and opportunity from the bottom up. For Obama to make good on his vision for a new "partnership" in the Americas, the divisive Bush PPA initiative must be laid to rest well before the April V Summit of the Americas gets underway.
The 2009 IV Peoples Summit in Trinidad and Tobago
On April 17-19, 2009, the IV Peoples Summit will be taking place in Port of Spain, Trinidad (while heads of state are simultaneously meeting at the V Summit of the Americas).The message of a "change agenda" for the hemisphere will be brought to the island nation by social movements coming from all points in between Alaska and Tierra del Fuego. A key focus for discussions during the Peoples Summit will be the economic meltdown hitting the capitalist system, and the opening that this provides for the implementation of a peoples agenda promoting sustainable development, social justice, equity, and peaceful coexistence.[ie, communism/socialism -etl]
In conjunction with the Hemispheric Social Alliance, social movements present in Trinidad and Tobago will be providing a "change agenda" that, in large measure, will likely be echoed by representatives from many of the newly elected governments in Latin America and the Caribbean. The V Summit of the Americas will be an ideal setting for Obama to signal a new respectful and consultative role for the US in the Americas as well. Will Obama avail himself of the opportunity to take this courageous step forward? Ojalá!
In April 1985 Panetta joined with 13 of his leftist congressional colleagues including Ron Dellums, Don Edwards, George Miller, Christopher Dodd, and Les Aspin in sponsoring a 20th anniversary fund-raising gala for the pro-Marxist Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), which had been described by Brian Crozier, director of the London Institute for the Study of Conflict, as the "perfect intellectual front for Soviet activities which would be resisted if they were to originate openly from the KGB." The IPS was originally funded with millions of dollars from the Faberge perfume magnate and Communist Party member Samuel Rubin and his wife.
Convergence theory was very prevalent in political science graduate schools in the 70’s and 80’s. Then along came Ronald Reagan and threw a monkey wrench into things and the old USSR collapsed. The Bolsheviks had to stand aside for a short while till they got back into power. Now with Putin in charge and a resurgent USSR the plan is back on track. The idea of convergence was that we would have a merging of capitalism and socialism and centrally controlled economies. It would placate the ones who wanted pure socialism and the reservations of the capitalist elites. If all this sounds like it’s been tried before, it has. In recent times it has been called the “third way”. Among the proponents of convergence, was of course, Kissinger, John G. Stoessinger, Chalmers Johnson among others. Convergence once broken down into it’s simple parts is old stuff. One variant was Karl Kautsky’s argument that socialism could evolve in democratic societies, a running argument he had with Lenin at the time, who felt only revolutions could bring socialism to societies. Observing from afar the experiment in the USSR was another socialist, Benito Mussolini, taking into account such failures as were happening at the time in the USSR due to the nationalization of all property, he came up with the corporate state. He postulated that the state need not “own” the means of production, but rather it would need to “control” them. Thus the hybrid socialist state called fascism was born. Adolf Hitler in Germany leading the national socialists took Mussolini’s approach and applied them to Germany. In the Post WW II era with the defeat of fascist socialism, the same basic approach reared it’s head again. This time headed by Juan Peron in Argentina and dubbed “the third way” it was the same fascist socialist wine in a new bottle. Soon another variant arose in Yugoslavia under Tito. Coming full circle, convergence seems rather very close to the continuing evolution of fascist socialism under a new name. Either way you cut it, the people “masses” loose.
Russia, China flex muscles in joint war games
Reuters: Aug 17, 2007
CHEBARKUL, Russia (Reuters) - Russia and China staged their biggest joint exercises on Friday but denied this show of military prowess could lead to the formation of a counterweight to NATO.
"Today's exercises are another step towards strengthening the relations between our countries, a step towards strengthening international peace and security, and first and foremost, the security of our peoples," Putin said.
Fighter jets swooped overhead, commandos jumped from helicopters on to rooftops and the boom of artillery shells shook the firing range in Russia's Ural mountains as two of the largest armies in the world were put through their paces.
The exercises take place against a backdrop of mounting rivalry between the West, and Russia and China for influence over Central Asia, a strategic region that has huge oil, gas and mineral resources.
Russia's growing assertiveness is also causing jitters in the West. Putin announced at the firing range that Russia was resuming Soviet-era sorties by its strategic bomber aircraft near NATO airspace.
"the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the [20th] century" -Russian leader Vladimir Putin on the collapse of the Soviet Union...
"World democratic opinion has yet to realize the alarming implications of President Vladimir Putin's State of the Union speech on April 25, 2005, in which he said that the collapse of the Soviet Union represented the 'greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century.'

Venezuela's Chavez welcomes Russian warships
Nov 25, 2008
LA GUAIRA, Venezuela Russian warships arrived off Venezuela's coast Tuesday in a show of strength aimed at the United States as Moscow seeks to expand its influence in Latin America. The deployment is the first of its kind in the Caribbean since the Cold War and was timed to coincide with President Dmitry Medvedev's visit to Caracas the first ever by a Russian president.

Russian nuclear bombers in Cuba?
July 23, 2008
The media has been abuzz today at the prospect of Russian nuclear bombers being stationed in Cuba if the US goes ahead with plans for missile defense bases in Eastern Europe.
The story has riled the US enough that a US general has been wheeled out to tell the worlds press that any Russian attempt to build another nuclear base in Cuba would cross US red line.
The story broke earlier this week, when Russian newspaper Izvestia quoted an un-named source from within the Russian military. He told the Russian daily:
While they are deploying the missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic, our strategic bombers will already be landing in Cuba.
The quote hasnt been independently confirmed, but the Russian Defense Ministry added fuel to the fire when they refused to comment on the story.
The prospect of Russian nuclear forces being stationed in Cuba - which is, after all, only 90 miles from the US coast - would bring back some rather unpleasant memories for the US of the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, where the Soviet Union under Nikita Kruschev launched an audacious and foolhardy bid to station nuclear missiles on the Caribbean island.
With each day that goes by, something happens in the world that further fulfills Bible prophecy for the end of this age.
With Barack Obama's socialist economic policies looming as the final nail in the coffin for this country, the European Union preparing to ensure Israel's "security" as part of any peace agreement, and a one-world government well on it's way to completion, I firmly believe we are in the final wrap-up before Christ's return.
I've gotten to the point of anticipating what headlines will pop up on a day-to-day basis that will tell us where we are on the timeline today.
Your right confusion is a powerful thing and obama can’t rid himself of it.
kissinger/soros. The real axis of evil.
Yep. Read Liberal Facism by Jonah Goldberg.
Amazing << Hear this. Feel this, and tell me that this isn't music.
Read it. Wonderful book.
....was also Moscow's man in Baghdad, back in the good old days.
