Revisiting Walter Cronkite and Hillary Clinton’s call for global government
The following are excerpts from Cronkite’s remarks (with emphasis added):
…“It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict, we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government patterned after our own government with a legislature, executive and judiciary, and police to enforce its international laws and keep the peace.”
“To do that, of course, we Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty. That would be a bitter pill. It would take a lot of courage, a lot of faith in the new order.”
“But the American colonies did it once and brought forth one of the most nearly perfect [federal] unions the world has ever seen.”
First Lady Hillary Clinton introduced Cronkite to the group, hailing him for “inspiring all of us to build a more peaceful and just world.”
Hillary Clinton’s U.N. news conference seen as rare and inaccessible
The United Nations is not a typical backdrop for an American politician to address a domestic political “scandal.” In fact, it might be unprecedented.
But that was the chosen venue of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton to take questions (the first news conference since she left office) – which everyone knew would focus on her use of private e-mails to conduct government correspondence.
Former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Bill Richardson said he could not recall a similar occasion during his tenure when the United Nations venue was used for a personal political reason, although he noted that “celebrities and movie stars have had press events [at the United Nations] but only for plugging U.N. causes.”
Bernie Sanders: Y
Voted NO on withholding $244M in UN Back Payments until US seat restored.
