Biden Baits the Hook

Vice President Joe Biden gave a talk last Friday at a banking conference and he uttered a line that was absolutely certain to make the wingnuts lose their minds. He said that as the world changes rapidly, we need to create a “new world order.” Aaron Klein of the Worldnutdaily reflexively took the bait:

Delivering the keynote address at the Export-Import Bank Conference in Washington, D.C. on Friday, Biden stated “the affirmative task we have now is to create a new world order.”

He continued: “Because the global order is changing again, and the institutions of the world worked so well in the post-World War II era for decades, they need to be strengthened, and some need to be changed.”

“So we have to do what we do best, we have to lead,” he stated. “We have to update the global rules of the road, we have to do it in a way that maximizes benefits for everyone, because obviously, it’s overwhelmingly in our interests. This is not a zero sum game, it’s overwhelming our interest, that China prosper, that Mongolia prosper, that nations big and large, East and West (prosper). We have to level the playing field so that companies and workers can compete in the world, that the competition is fair and it’s healthy.”

You can almost hear Biden chuckling to himself as he uttered that phrase, knowing it was catnip for wingnuts.

    Banking Reform

    We have to level the playing field so that companies and workers can compete in the world.

    Reduce the Power and Resistance of all Bank and Corporate groups by 1, and the Power and Resistance of all groups that are both Bank and Corporate by 3.

    This card replaces any Blue NWO in play.

    (Why, yes, I still play INWO, thanks for asking.)

    How can we create a New World Order when it was already created by the Illuminati/ZOG/Bilderberg/etc many decades ago? Surely WND heard about it; it was in all the wingblogs. Maybe their talking about New New World Order?

    What does a new world order mean anyhow? Aside from wingnut bait?

    Wouldn’t “a new world order” literally mean reordering the planets shifting their locations so, for instance, we swap the places of Venus and where Mars is and bring Pluto close enough to clear its orbit again and become a planet again so our solar system s new world order becomes Mercury, Mars, Earth, Venus, Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter etc .. maybe kick Uranus out altogether! Sounds good to me!

    Let’s not forget the Masons, the Trilateral Commission, Skull and Bones, and the Council on Foreign Relations.

    We should definitely not overlook Skull and Bones. Obama’s Secretary of State was a member during his college years.

    And the Rothchilds and the Rand corporation.

    I’m sure the Fed and Agenda 21 fit in there somehow, too.

    For Biden’s next trick, he’s going to paint a fake tunnel on the side of a mountain and let the wingnuts run into it.

    I guess Ministry is going to have to update that song with a new soundbite.

    It’s funny how “new world order” is assumed by many to mean a Nazi-esque “Neuordnung” on a global scale. Yet, in actuality the phrase simply refers to the ever-changing international systems of alliances and balances of power.

    Which version of World Order is Biden suggesting? Are we up to 11.0 now?

    1.) 1492 — Spanish Reconquista, overseas expansion, “Golden Age”, Habsburg rule
    2.) 1566 — Dutch Revolt; Eighty Years War; Thirty Years War
    3.) 1648 — Westphalian system
    4.) 1689 — League of Augsburg/Grand Alliance
    5.) mid-eighteenth century — ? I’m not sure what to call this or when it ended
    6.) 1815 — Metternichian “Concert of Europe”
    7.) 1919 — League of Nations (unsupported, short-term release)
    8.) 1945 — Bilateral superpowers; Cold War; Breton Woods system; decolonization; U.N.
    9.) 1971 — Floating currencies; Detente; Oil crisis; rise of Third World Debt; fast global communication and transportation
    10.) 1991 — Post-Cold-War; U.S. hegemony; market triumphalism; new international trade agreements; E.U. This was also when conspiracists jumped on the phrase after George H.W. Bush made it more well-known.

    It shouldn’t be surprising that since many conspiracists are isolationist and reactionary, they are suspicious of international relations and socio-political change. They probably want an old world order that is so old it pre-dates the Renaissance.

    Biden’s just giving a shout-out to the Founding Fathers, who were of course all a bunch of Freemasons.

    ACORN was just a cover for the sasquach invasion. Yeah, you laugh now. Wait until they take your damn job! Damn hairy beasts, all of them, if you ask me. 37 years I ran that line. Until some big footed semi-literate ape had a cousin in congress. And now you guys just talk about ACORN this and ACORN that. ACORN your yeti ass! That’s all I’m gonna say. Conspiracy, I think. Reptoids and ape men and illuminated people. What do they know about a Sprocket Witnikiki 2000? How to send it to Kolob, that’s what! Damn sasquach. Fucker ate my dog, too.
