Hillary Clinton’s Global Agenda

By Cliff Kincaid

 

               

She said she didn’t want to stay home and bake cookies. And she didn’t.  A radical feminist with a background in Marxist dogma and Communist connections, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton is today wielding  national power and may be on her way back to the White House -- this time as President. This is so despite the fact that her name is associated with many Clinton scandals, including Whitewater, Filegate, Travelgate, E-mailgate, and the mysterious death of White House aide Vincent Foster. Independent Counsel Robert Ray refused to indict her for perjury, even though he found that she had lied about her role in  the firing of White House travel office employees. The latest scandal involves acceptance of an $8-million advance for her memoirs of her White House years and the publication of her book, Living History. 

 

                Mrs. Clinton is also associated with the fiasco dubbed “Hillarycare,” the Clinton Administration Socialized medicine scheme that failed to pass Congress. But Mrs. Clinton, who has been greatly underestimated by her critics, has learned her lesson. The plan went down because she did not have big business on her side. In moving forward with her international Socialist agenda, and the transformation of the United Nations and its agencies into a global state, she has enlisted critical support from the U.S. business and religious communities. Although she spoke of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” against her husband’s administration, she has orchestrated a movement of her own that reaches well beyond national borders and into the inner sanctums of the U.N. This special report examines her largely behind-the-scenes work with the United Nations, Secretary-General Kofi Annan, his wife, and U.N.-associated non-governmental organizations.

 

                In the Senate, Mrs. Clinton can be expected to push several radical U.N. treaties  and move America toward what her friend, former CBS Evening News anchorman Walter Cronkite, has openly declared to be “world government.” Clinton and Cronkite have both endorsed the World Federalist Association, a U.S. taxpayer-funded organization which says that American sovereignty will be “gradually eroded until it is no longer an issue.” Its sister organization, the Campaign for U.N. Reform, has increased its clout on Capitol Hill. At this point, it is not so clear that Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Senator Jesse Helms can stand in the way.

Mrs. Clinton To Run For White House

Hillary Biographer, the late Barbara Olson, says Mrs. Clinton’s roots are Marxist

 

Barbara Olson, author of  Hell to Pay. The Unfolding Story of Hillary Rodham Clinton (Regnery Publishing, Inc. 1999),  is a prominent Washington attorney who served as a congressional investigator and as a general counsel in the United States Senate. She was interviewed by Cliff Kincaid, president of America’s Survival,  on December 8, 2000. What follows is an edited transcript of that interview. 

 

Q: Do you believe that Hillary Rodham Clinton is a Marxist?

A:  I believe she has a political ideology that has its roots in Marxism. In her formative years, Marxism was a very important part of her ideology...But when you look at her ideas on health and education, you see more government and less individual control. You see very little regard for families...

 

Q: Do you see Hillary as in favor of Socialist-style thinking at the global level?

A: We saw that with her activities as First Lady. She traveled more than any other First Lady. She had a global view. She spoke at the Beijing conference on women. She was very active in organizations and conferences  that seem to be concerned about human rights but which are also directed toward a centralized governmental view. That is, one world. I looked at her travels and saw what  she was doing. I always assumed Hillary was going to run for president. And I assumed that these international travels and her work with the Beijing women’s conference and the U.N. were going to be her way into the White House; that she was going to have a foreign policy platform that not many women have...

 

Q: So you do believe that she will run for president?

A: I do. She believes her ideology to the core. She’s worked for it behind Bill Clinton for years. I have thought that Hillary was going to run for  the White House since 1993 when I started investigating the Clintons. She doesn’t compromise. She doesn’t come to the center. She believes in a true leftist, Socialist kind of government.

 

Q: She portrays her causes such as children’s rights and women’s rights in such an attractive manner. She has put conservatives on the defensive once again.

A: She has. That’s the central focus of  her public relations campaign...But her ideas about health care and education have very little to do with women and children. They are the lever she uses to bring the government into the family.  

 

Q: She’s been pushing  treaties such as the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women. Isn’t she promoting  global government?

A: Yes.We all know about her book, It Takes a Village. She says the future is not family but the larger village of teachers, pediatricians and social workers. She talks about raising children as less of a parental task than a social one...You have the destruction of the family unit. That’s very basic when you study Socialism and Marxism. (30)

 

 


 

By Cliff Kincaid

                Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) believes in a world government under the auspices of the United Nations that will destroy American sovereignty and traditional families.  

                A media black-out has kept most Americans in the dark about the support that  Mrs. Clinton and her husband gave to the World Federalist Association (WFA),  a controversial organization which openly advocates world government. The WFA says that by adding more power, authority and functions to the United Nations, “national sovereignty would be gradually eroded until it is no longer an issue.” [1] The group promotes “global citizenship” and such international agencies as the International Criminal Court (ICC),  a “World Disarmament Authority” to control the weapons of the world, nuclear and even small arms; and an independent “peacekeeping” army for the U.N.

                In its final days, the Clinton Administration signed the U.N. treaty to create an ICC, which could prosecute and imprison Americans for alleged war crimes. President Clinton had initially opposed the treaty, because of Pentagon fears the court would go after American military personnel, but he approved it anyway. [2]

                Another key objective of those devoted to world government is to defeat or derail President George W. Bush’s plan to deploy a national missile defense system. National missile defense makes a U.N.-sponsored “World Disarmament Authority” unnecessary and unwise. If we can protect and defend ourselves, we don’t need the U.N. to do it for us through global bureaucracies and treaties. Missile defense reaffirms national security and survival.

                Both the Russians and the Chinese have advocated a U.N. ban on a missile defense system, and U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan has argued that missile defense “poses a serious threat to the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty” and threatens “strategic stability.” [3]

 

     U.N. Boss Annan opposes a missile defense system for America.

 

                Annan, however, has not been critical of the Russian anti-missile system and Russian violations of that treaty. Former CIA/DIA official William T. Lee’s book [4] proves that the Russians have already violated the ABM treaty by integrating thousands of dual purpose anti-aircraft weapons  with large radars that provide warnings of a missile attack. Lee says the  Russians are set to obtain a big strategic advantage if they continue to improve their nuclear arsenal and if we continue to adhere to the discredited ABM treaty.

                Such  an imbalance puts Russia in the position of being able to launch a successful nuclear strike on the United States and protect much of its own territory and people with its own national missile defense. It’s no wonder that the Russians -- and the U.N. -- want the ABM treaty to remain in force for the United States. It leaves us defenseless.

                While the Clinton Administration  postponed deployment of a missile defense system and ultimately embraced the ICC, it also rushed ahead with the U.N. military agenda,  issuing a secret Presidential Decision Directive (PDD-25) deploying our troops to the world organization and  prosecuting Army soldier Michael New for bad conduct for refusing to wear a U.N. uniform and report to a foreign U.N. commander.[5] U.S. troops are now in over 100 countries.

                Mrs. Clinton is best known for her support of the radical U.N. agenda that affects families, women and children.

                One of  Mrs. Clinton’s favorite U.N. agencies,  the U.N. Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), has a slogan, “Women Hold Up Half the Sky,” which was used during the age of Chinese Communist mass murderer Mao Tse Tung [6] to highlight the role of women in the Communist revolution. Mrs. Clinton adopted the slogan as her own in a speech to the U.N. [7]  

                Over the years, she has given several speeches at U.N. events, including an address at a 1995 “women’s conference” in Communist China, where human rights are severely curtailed and Christians are persecuted. [8]

                Although a woman’s reproductive rights are controlled by the state in China, some feminists believe that  Mao’s China is a model for the world. Mao himself said, “Genuine equality between the sexes can only be realized in the process of the socialist transformation of society as a whole.”  [9]

                U.N. Boss Kofi Annan’s wife, Nane, the “First Lady of the United Nations” and an ally of Hillary Clinton.

                           -------------

                The U.N.’s radical agenda in both social and military affairs is embraced by the World Federalist Association, which hosted the then-First Lady on October 19, 1999. When Mrs. Clinton spoke to the group, she was approving an organization that, like the U.N. itself, was on the wrong side of the Cold War.

                During the historic stand-off between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, the WFA collaborated with the Soviet Peace Committee, an instrument of the Soviet Communist regime. The WFA staged a “Mission to Moscow” and held several meetings with the Soviet Peace Committee for the purpose of “discussing the goal of general and complete “disarmament” and “the strengthening of the United Nations.” [10]

                At the time, the Soviets were trying to defeat the Reagan conventional and nuclear arms build-up and policy of supporting anti-Communist freedom fighters.

                In particular, the WFA and its officials strongly opposed the policy of assisting Nicaraguan freedom fighters who were opposing the Soviet- and

Cuban-backed Nicaraguan Sandinista dictatorship. A suit filed by the WFA with the U.N.’s International Court of Justice had declared U.S. support of the freedom fighters, known as “Contras,” to be a violation of international law. [11] 

                If the U.S. had complied with this dictate, Nicaragua would have remained a Communist dictatorship and Communism could have taken over all of Central America. But the Reagan policy forced the Sandinistas into holding free elections that the Communists lost. This defeat led to the Communists in El Salvador giving up their armed struggle and making peace with the government.                  

                From the start, the U.N. was viewed as an instrument of Communist policy.  The U.N.’s first Secretary-General, who assumed the post in a temporary or acting capacity, was Soviet spy Alger Hiss, an official in President Franklin Roosevelt’s Administration. The new book, The Venona Secrets, documents how the founding conference of the U.N. in 1945, which Hiss attended, was “an important opportunity” for other members of a Soviet spy ring, including Roosevelt’s Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Harry Dexter White, a Harvard economist whose policies produced the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. [12]

                White, who also attended the U.N’s founding conference, gave the Soviets information on the American delegation’s internal discussions [13] which enabled the Soviets to counter U.S. proposals.

                Oleg Kalugin, former chief of counterintelligence and major general in the Soviet KGB,  says the Soviet mission to the U.N. became  “little more than a nest of KGB spies and intelligence officers” and notes that he, Kalugin, was elected as vice-president of the U.N. Correspondents Association. [14]

                There is no reason to believe that the U.N. has ceased to be a massive base of espionage and intelligence operations against the U.S.  

                Yet this is the organization that the WFA wants to transform into a global state with independent military, police and judicial powers.

                Another prominent figure in the WFA was the late Alan Cranston, the far-left former California Senator who became chairman of the Gorbachev Foundation, named for the former Soviet President, Mikhail Gorbachev, who leads it. Cranston, himself accused of having a pro-Communist bent, [15] spoke on the subject of a “nuclear-free world” at the twentieth anniversary conference of the Council for Secular Humanism, which envisions “a future without religion.” [16]

                Nevertheless, the WFA was a recipient of $15,000 in American taxpayer money from the $11 million-a-year Congressionally-funded U.S. Institute of Peace to analyze the prospect  of “standing peace forces and peacekeeping reserves” for the U.N.; international tribunals; and a “world court on human rights.”  [17]

                When the organization  was founded in Asheville, North Carolina, in  1947, the local paper headlined the event “World Government Plan Outlined by Speakers.” [18]

                This event produced the United World Federalists (UWF), whose first president, Cord Meyer, Jr. (1947-1949), had served as chief of the International Organizations Division of the CIA. The UWF  board included such figures as Albert Einstein, the renowned physicist who “never wavered from his basic conviction that only a world government could secure peace,” [19] but who has subsequently been linked to Soviet intelligence. [20]   

                Today, the World Federalist Movement, as it’s called, features strong

backing from U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who says, “Your movement has helped keep alive for fifty years the values which inspire the creation of the United Nations...” 

                The WFA’s sister organization, the Campaign for U.N. Reform (CUNR), endorsed or financially supported dozens of  Congressional candidates. Don Kraus, executive director of the group, says that over 60 percent of those candidates in the 2000 election won their races. CUNR drafted legislation for Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) authorizing U.S. funding of a U.N.-sponsored rapid reaction military force.      Another WFA favorite, Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.), has been described as one of the “most outspoken” supporters of an International Criminal Court. 

                Some of CUNR’s more prominent victories in the House were Rep. David Bonior (D-Mich.), a leader of House Democrats, and Rep. Jim Leach (R-Iowa), a member of the International Relations Committee. In the Senate, victories include Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca.), Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), Paul Sarbanes (D-Md.), Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.), and James Jeffords (R-Vt.). 

 

                With the loss of several prominent conservatives, such as Senator John Ashcroft, a strong opponent of the  International Criminal Court, the evidence  suggests that the U.N. lobby is stronger than ever on Capitol Hill and that Senator Clinton could emerge as its champion.

 

                U.N. treaties which have remained dormant in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee could be forced to the Senate floor for a quick vote. Mrs. Clinton might be able to persuade just enough liberal or “moderate” Republicans to ratify these documents.

                Mrs. Clinton’s appearance before the WFA marked the third time that a prominent U.S. official had addressed the organization. The others occurred when President Bill Clinton had sent a message to the group on the occasion of the WFA’s awarding of a “global governance” award to his Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott, who handled Russian affairs.

 

                       Global Citizens

 

                Talbott, a former columnist for Time magazine, wrote a column entitled “The Birth of the Global Nation,” arguing that in the next century “nationhood as we know it will be obsolete,” that we would all some day become world citizens, and that wars and human rights violations in the 20th century had clinched “the case for world government.” [21] 

                Hillary Clinton and Strobe Talbott had been friends at Yale University. [22]

                In his message to the group, dated June 22, 1993, Bill Clinton noted that Norman Cousins, the WFA founder, had “worked for world peace and world government.” Clinton didn’t disagree with those goals, adding, “Best wishes...for future success.” So when Hillary Clinton gave her video-taped address there can be no doubt that she was aware of its pro-world government orientation.

                Mrs. Clinton’s address was delivered in the context of commending Walter Cronkite, the former anchorman of the CBS Evening News, and the WFA. Cronkite, who received the WFA’s 1999 global governance award, declared that “we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government” and that America must “yield up some of our sovereignty.” [23] Mrs. Nane Annan, the Swedish wife of the U.N. Secretary-General, was among those honoring Cronkite.

                Cronkite also called for passage of several U.N. treaties, including:

              The treaty to ban land mines [24];

              The Law of the Sea Treaty;

              The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty; [25]

              The Convention to Eliminate All Forms of  Discrimination Against Women;

              The Convention on the Rights of the Child; and

              The treaty for a permanent International Criminal Court.

 

                As Senator from New York, it is expected that Mrs. Clinton might embrace treaties which her husband’s administration had initially refrained from signing or endorsing, such as the treaty banning land mines [26] and the International Criminal Court (ICC) treaty.

                The Clinton Administration resisted the land mine treaty under Pentagon pressure  because it would outlaw mines on the border between North and South Korea which deter a Communist invasion. [27] The Administration initially resisted the ICC, again under Pentagon pressure, because it could target American military personnel.

                As a Senator, Mrs. Clinton can ignore that kind of pressure. As First Lady, she had been a vigorous supporter of so-called ad hoc U.N. criminal courts, such as the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, which targets citizens of that country for alleged crimes against humanity, and the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. [28] One U.S. resident, a Rwandan pastor, was arrested by the FBI and extradited to Rwanda to stand trial, despite serious doubts about the case against him.[29]  The Rwanda tribunal had a budget of $40 million, $12 million of that supplied by the U.S.  

                In addition to Mrs. Clinton’s glowing remarks about him,  Cronkite was presented at the WFA affair with an award “honoring his support of world government” by WFA President and CEO John Anderson, a former Republican Congressman and independent candidate for president. 

                The event was held at the U.N. and videotaped by the U.N. Department of Public Information.

                In his book, A Reporter’s Life, Cronkite says that if we are to avoid a global nuclear war, “a system of world order -- preferably a system of world government -- is mandatory.” [30]

                Though described as “the most trusted man in America,” the record shows that the CBS Evening News, under his direction, had a “bias against a strong national defense” that was evident  during the 1970s and continued into the 1980s. The CBS Evening News propagandized against the military build-up initiated by President Reagan that turned out to be a major factor in the demise of the old Soviet Union and the U.S. victory in the Cold War. [31]                 

                Another WFA fellow traveler is Richard J. Barnet, a member of the WFA board of advisers, who is a founder of the controversial Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), a Marxist-oriented think tank. [32]

                Journalist and author Brian Crozier  wrote in National Review that IPS “is the perfect intellectual front for Soviet activities which would be resisted if they were to originate openly from the KGB.” [33]              

                S. Steven Powell’s book on IPS includes actual photographs of identified

Soviet agents who attended IPS functions or associated with IPS personalities. He names two as KGB officers. [34]      

                Samuel Rubin, a member of the Communist Party  and a Russian emigre, founded the Rubin Foundation, which provided the bulk of IPS’s funding. [35] His daughter, Cora Weiss, worked with the IPS and organized anti-Vietnam War activities at the request of the Communist Hanoi government. [36] Weiss was the President of the Hague Appeal for Peace Conference, May 11-15, 1999, which was co-sponsored by the World Federalist Movement. A picture of Weiss is included in the 1999 annual report of the WFA. [37]

                Robert Borosage, who served as director of IPS, was “a colleague and close acquaintance” of Hillary Clinton, according to Barbara Olson’s book, Hell to Pay. [38]

                Olson writes that Mrs. Clinton operated in the “reaches of the left including Robert Treuhaft and Jessica Mitford,” who had been “committed Communists” and “Stalinists.” [39]  Olson says that Hillary worked for Treuhaft and paved the way for Mitford to lobby then-Governor Bill Clinton on the death penalty issue.

                Olson described Hillary as a “budding Leninist” who understood the Leninist concept of acquiring, accumulating and maintaining political power at any cost. [40]

               

                However, Olson also writes that:

 

                “Hillary has never repudiated her connection with the Communist movement in America or explained her relationship with two of its leading adherents. Of course, no one has pursued these questions with Hillary. She has shown that she will not answer hard questions about her past, and she has learned that she does not need to -- remarkable in an age when political figures are allowed such little privacy.” [41]

 

                In college, Hillary Clinton expressed admiration for an article written by a 1960s SDS student protest leader, described as a Marxist or Maoist, who “defended Ho Chi Minh and Castro, and Maoist tactics of violence.” [42] 

                Over the last several years, as First Lady of the United States,  Mrs. Clinton seems to have emulated the notorious pro-Communist and pro-U.N. activist, Bella Abzug. At the U.N., Abzug promoted women’s rights and environmental causes.

                In one of several speeches over the years to U.N. agencies and events, Hillary hailed Abzug’s work and career. [43]

                When Mrs. Clinton was urged not to attend the women’s conference in Communist China, because of human rights problems there, Abzug was among those saying she should go. [44]  Mrs. Clinton went.

 

 One of Hillary Clinton’s role models is  Bella Abzug, the late pro-Communist  and pro-U.N. activist.

 

                Abzug was a member of several Communist Party front groups. When Abzug ran for congress, the Socialist Party opposed her for having shown “a general unwillingness to be outspokenly critical of Communist actions threatening the peace and freedom of the world.”  Abzug opposed allowing Vietnamese refugees to come to the U.S. after the Communist takeover, arguing that they “deserved the punishment that awaits them.” Such punishment for thousands was death. [45]      

                Abzug, a long-time feminist, also favored federal financing of 24-hour-a-day child care centers. [46]

                At a U.N. public tribute, described as an “unprecedented use” of the U.N. General Assembly, personalities such as Jane Fonda, Shirley MacLaine, Phil Donahue, and 

Timothy Wirth, former senator and  a former assistant secretary of state who became head of Ted Turner’s U.N. Foundation, paid homage to Abzug.

               

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan described Abzug as “a fixture at the United Nations during this past decade...” and said that “All of us here today” were influenced by Abzug’s organization. Her legacy “shall endure,” he said. 

                Senator Mary Landrieu (D-La.) called Abzug “a unique and effective spokesperson for women,” and that she, Landrieu, had been “influenced” by her and was a friend. [47]

                Although Abzug was reported to be an “active Zionist” during her collegiate days, she went on to brand Israel as an “imperialist aggressor” during proceedings of a 1967 radical conference. [48]

                Mrs. Clinton flip-flopped in the opposite direction. Olson noted that she has “a lifetime record of support for the Palestine Liberation Organization,” [49] which had once been labeled a terrorist organization. But during her run for the Senate, in an effort to attract Jewish votes, Mrs. Clinton denounced “Chairman Arafat,” the head of the PLO, and called on him to “end the violence” engulfing the region. She called for a peace agreement “that guarantees Israel’s security.” [50]

Such a “guarantee” may consist of U.S. troops deployed to the region as U.N. “peacekeepers.”  

                Clinton adopted the pro-Israel tone in a speech before the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), where she hailed the CFR for challenging “the forces of isolationism” and championing “internationalism.” She urged further efforts to create a “stronger constituency for American international leadership here at home.” She also took the following positions on foreign policy issues:

              Defended the Clinton-NATO war on Yugoslavia;

              Supported normal trade relations with China;

              Urged payment of  “our dues” to the U.N.; [51]

              Called on “international organizations” to ensure “fair labor standards” and “environmental protection” around the world;

                Urged the G-8 group of countries and the World Bank to tackle the issues of illiteracy, foreign debt, and AIDS;

              Recommended passage of a U.N. treaty on international organized crime and the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.

 

                Despite Mrs. Clinton’s attempt to portray herself as a friend of Israel, she had earlier chaired a group, the New World Foundation, which awarded a $15,000 grant to an organization with direct ties to the PLO. [52]

                Mrs. Clinton chaired the group during a time, 1982-1988, when it also gave grants to the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES), a front group for the Communist terrorists; the National Lawyers Guild, identified as a Communist front; and the Christic Institute, [53] an extreme left-wing group of lawyers which practiced “legal terrorism” against citizens, retired military and intelligence officials, and others who were perceived to be supporting the cause of freedom from Communism in Central America. [54]     

                But as Abzug’s support for federal day-care centers illustrates, the extreme left has always supported causes which have the same potential as the growth of Communism to alter American society. The target has usually been the traditional family.     

                In the same way that Mrs. Clinton promoted a federal takeover of the health care system, her promotion of feminism and “children’s rights” serves to promote government control of family life and the raising of children. Mrs. Clinton, whose book, It Takes a Village, promotes less parental involvement with children,  shares Abzug’s belief in a national network of federally-financed day-care centers where professional bureaucrats and “educators” take control of the lives of the young.

                 It is significant that Mrs. Clinton, in a speech to a U.N. conference on population issues, also spoke favorably of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, for her  “family planning” work.  [55] Although Sanger has been portrayed as a fighter for women’s rights, she abandoned her family while her marriage was collapsing in order to push the birth control cause. Sanger was a Socialist and a racist,  having made brazen pronouncements in favor of population control programs targeting blacks and other minorities as “human weeds.” A central focus of her work was getting the U.S. Government to endorse and promote her work.

                The clear intention of the birth control movement from the start was not to give individuals the right to make decisions, in the privacy of their own bedrooms, but rather to empower government to regulate and control human beings.

                The radical feminists do not support family planning but family control. The real purpose of so-called “reproductive rights” is to control the size of families. When the feminists talk about “educating” young women about their rights, the aim is to made sure that they choose contraception, abortion or sterilization, and avoid motherhood. Another popular U.N. phrase, “improving women’s status,” is another way of saying that women will be less likely to have children if they are forced into the career world. 

                Under the Clinton Administration, the U.S. funded Mrs. Clinton’s pet project, UNIFEM, whose main goal was described as the  “integration of women into the national economies of their countries.” This is another way of saying that women shouldn’t be home having and raising children.

 

            Feminism to Communism

 

                The scheduling of the 1995 U.N. Fourth World Conference on Women in Communist China was controversial but no accident. It is relevant to what the U.N. planners and the feminists have in mind for the world.

                Not too far from the five-star hotel where the feminists were meeting, baby girls and boys were being starved to death at Communist Chinese orphanages. Pictures of this brutality were smuggled out of the country by Human Rights Watch. One showed an emaciated 11 year-old girl tied down to a bed withering away to nothing. A British film about the problem, The Dying Rooms, showed children tied to wooden toilets, sleeping in their own excrement. One British reporter was shocked to find a baby hidden away in a towel and being allowed to die.

                These children were fortunate; they were allowed to live -- for a while.   

                In China, a woman can be forced to

undergo abortions and sterilization to comply with the state-mandated one-child per-family policy. If a mother has more than one child, government benefits can be taken away or her children killed outright.

                If the U.N. program is completely implemented on a world-wide basis, population control could be a more efficient way of running peoples’ lives than Communism. Indeed, population control may be more of a danger than Communism because it is packaged so attractively as something that will benefit women and even save the planet’s resources.

                               

                      Subverting Congress

 

                Mrs. Clinton has already left her mark on the federal government and its policies, which also affect the private sector. As First Lady, Hillary was involved in creating the President’s Interagency Council for Women, described by her as an effort “to ensure that every single government agency works to fulfill the promises that we made in Beijing” at the U.N.’s Fourth World Conference on Women. 

                The council was “charged with coordinating the implementation of the Platform of Action adopted at Beijing,” said a White House press release.

                Rather than submit the “Platform of Action” to the Senate in the form of a treaty for ratification, the White House moved to implement it unilaterally. The Council was comprised of representatives of 30 different federal agencies and offices, as well as the World Bank. Like Hillary’s Socialized medicine task force, they worked largely in secret to radicalize the government and its policies, even as they affected private business.

                Hillary Clinton served as honorary chair of the council, and Secretary of Health  and Human Services Donna Shalala, who served as co-chair of the official U.S. delegation to Beijing, was the chairman.

                While it is impossible to determine with certainty how many rules and regulations were imposed  as part of this effort, a General Accounting Office (GAO) study found that 13 different federal agencies, without congressional approval, had spent about $5.9 million on the 1995  conference itself and an associated forum for non-governmental organizations, most of them feminist groups.

                One of the seven “commitments” made by the U.S. at Beijing was passage of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

                One provision of the document calls for “equal remuneration” for “work of equal value,” which is a “comparable worth” scheme amounting to what Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.)  calls “government  wage control.” Hence, CEDAW is a rationale for the Socialization of the economy in the name of  “women’s rights.”

                One might think there would be no chance of   getting the U.S. Senate to ratify such a radical measure. But this view ignores the political power of the “gender gap” - the perception that conservatives are on the wrong side of so-called women’s issues.  

                Conservatives can reformulate the political debate and expose the U.N. as a global instrument of discrimination against women, especially mothers who want to have and raise children. The Achilles heel of CEDAW is Article 16, Section 1 (e), which requires governments to allow women “to decide freely and responsibly  on the number and spacing of their children.” (emphasis added).

                This rather innocuous-sounding provision can be interpreted to mean not only abortion on demand but forced abortion if a government requires it.

                It is significant that Communist China has interpreted CEDAW to allow its practice of compulsory abortion.

                Another U.N.treaty, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which is strongly backed by Clinton, would also mandate government control or even a break-up of the family. It would subject U.S. policies on families and children to approval by an international body. 

                Conservative activist and lawyer Phyllis Schlafly notes that the treaty asserts no rights for parents,  [56] while Focus on the Family says the treaty would elevate children’s rights over parental authority

                The treaty also asserts that children should be “brought up in the spirit of the ideals proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations...” [57]

                Back in 1973, notes Clinton biographer Barbara Olson, Mrs. Clinton had herself written on the topic, expressing a “contemptuous tone toward the family” in a 1973 Harvard Educational Review article  comparing marriage to slavery and living on an Indian reservation. Olson says it is apparent that Hillary’s early writings  were shaped by academic Marxism and

feminism  [58]  and that she opposes “patriarchy.”

                However, Hillary completely flip-flopped on the “children’s rights” issue when her Administration supported the return of Cuban refugee boy Elian Gonzalez to his father and Communist Cuba. He had been rescued at sea after his mother had fled Communism to seek a life of freedom in the U.S. for her son.  He was seized by federal agents from his relatives, with whom he had been placed,  when they staged a pre-dawn raid and  invaded a Miami home with automatic weapons. The agents took him to a U.S. military base to be with his father, who had been allowed by Castro to visit the U.S. for the purpose of taking custody of him.

                In Cuba, children are separated from their parents for extended periods of time and indoctrinated in Communist dogma.  

               

               Global Education

 

                Mrs. Clinton also favors more federal and even global control over the educational system. However, federal control has already proceeded at a rapid rate, and both major  presidential candidates in the 2000 election, Al Gore and George W. Bush, favored even more federal spending on education, a traditional local responsibility. Bush spoke of local control but  “accountability” to the federal government.

                There is major concern that a new education package coming out of Congress could reflect Mrs. Clinton’s influence and be hijacked by the radical left.

                One reported candidate for Secretary of Education, even in a Republican Bush Administration, was said to be Democratic Governor James Hunt of North Carolina, the vice chairman of the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE), a group closely linked to Clinton. 

                In a November 11, 1992, letter to Mrs. Clinton, the group’s president, Marc S. Tucker, had hailed the election of the Clintons in 1992, and said that he had just left David Rockefeller’s office in jubilation over what could be accomplished. Tucker then laid out a plan to impose control over the educational system for the purpose of making students into workers in the global economy. [59]

                In 1990-1991, the NCEE paid Mrs. Clinton $101,630 -- payments that came under the scrutiny of New York State Attorney General Dennis Vacco. [60]  It was unclear if Hillary got the money personally or if the funds went to Mrs. Clinton’s Rose law firm.         

                               

  American students are becoming “global  citizens” who lack knowledge of American history and American

  founding documents.

 

                Dr. Dennis Cuddy, a former senior associate in the Department of Education under President Reagan, says the plan is modeled on how former Soviet-bloc countries managed  “human resource development” in their educational

systems. [61] 

                Another NCEE board member was Ira Magaziner, who helped Hillary create her Socialized medicine plan. Hillary and Magaziner in 1992 wrote an article in Education Leadership about channeling  students into selected jobs by granting them each a “certificate of initial mastery” for certain skills.  

                The Education Reporter newsletter says  the goal is to achieve “interlocking control over both the public school system and the nation’s economy.” [62] Under this workforce development scheme, students are guided or even coerced  into a career path, from which it is  difficult to change, as early as the eighth grade. These decisions are made by educators and bureaucrats in collaboration with corporate and governmental needs.

                In common parlance, the approach has come to be known as “Outcome-Based education” and “School-to-work” educational schemes.

                This is in direct contrast to the traditional view of education, which holds that students should be given a well-rounded education and become independent and intelligent so they can pursue their own career choices.  Traditional education holds that students should be given academic skills and an essential body of knowledge, presented in a context of moral absolutes.

                A key aspect of the new approach to education is to downplay such areas as U.S. history and civics. The evidence is already around us:

 

              A federal survey discovered that only 41 percent of 4th graders could correctly answer a multiple choice question on why the Pilgrims came to America. [63] 

              A survey of teenagers found that while 75 percent knew the city with the 90210 zip code, only 26 percent knew the U.S. Constitution was written in Philadelphia. [64]

              A survey of seniors from America’s elite colleges and universities found that while 99 percent could identify Beavis and Butthead, over one-third were unable to identify the U.S. Constitution as establishing the divisions of power in American

government. [65]      

                 An example of this new approach to education can be found in the Exploris middle  school in North Carolina and a related “global experience center.” 

                Consultants to Exploris included “global education experts” such as  Charlotte Anderson of Education for Global Involvement (EGI) and  Andrew Smith of The American Forum for Global Education (TAF).

                 EGI  works with the U.N. Association to promote “Model U.N.” programs in public schools, in which students learn about the organization by acting like ambassadors. TAF distributes a publication, The United Nations, Come Along with Me!, conceived and written by Nane Annan, the wife of the U.N. Secretary-General, and designed to introduce second and third grade children to the U.N.

                Dennis Cuddy says the Clintons modeled their own Arkansas Governor’s School, designed for gifted and talented high school students, on the Exploris concept.

                But it is a nationwide problem. In Grove City, Pennsylvania, one elementary school teaching outcome-based education was caught having students reciting and signing a “pledge of allegiance to the world.” The written pledge was printed on a

certificate-like form that has the U.N. logo at the top.

                At the World Economic Forum, Mrs. Clinton described how her husband had spoken of their educational scheme “providing better educational opportunities, so that we have more of our people trained so they can take the jobs that are available in the global economy.” [66]

                But Mrs. Clinton was never content to operate in her husband’s shadow. In a question-and-answer session after the speech, she was asked if she thought it was time for “a strong, brilliant woman” to be U.S. President. “Yes,” she said, “and I look forward to voting for her.” [67]

 

                Socialized Medicine

 

                Is Mrs. Clinton that candidate? Her critics have frequently been wrong about her plans and abilities. Radio entertainer Rush Limbaugh, for instance, never thought she would run for the Senate, and many conservatives believed Mrs. Clinton, a carpetbagger, would lose the race to Rep. Rick Lazio, a native New Yorker  with a “moderate” reputation. However, Clinton crushed Lazio by twelve points, 55-43 percent.

                One mark on her record is her Socialized medicine scheme, unveiled in the first Clinton-Gore term,  which went down to a  disastrous defeat. That was primarily because some elements of the insurance and medical industries had strongly opposed it. The Clinton scheme was criticized for laying the groundwork for centralized health care planning and rationing. Such an approach has been adopted on the global level by Socialist Gro Harlem Brundtland, the director of the U.N.’s World Health Organization (WHO). [68]  The  WHO held a news conference on December 18, 2000, in Washington urging the Bush Administration to spend more on global health initiatives.

                Domestically, Mrs. Clinton has discovered that Socialism in health care must be implemented on an incremental basis. She has also learned that she must enlist Big Business in her radical crusades.

                Hillary addressed the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on April 13, 1999, and hailed the group for its involvement in the “Campaign to Preserve U.S. Global Leadership.” This was described by Hillary as a partnership involving major corporations and businesses, together with the non-profit sector, to promote “higher levels of funding for our international commitments.” [69]  That means more spending on the U.N. and foreign aid.

                It may seem curious that the Chamber, a pro-business group, should be so cozy with Hillary Clinton, who had tried to foist that Socialize medicine scheme on its members. But the Chamber received millions of taxpayer dollars through the National Endowment for Democracy (NED)[70] and has advocated trading with Castro’s Cuba. U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan spoke to the Chamber on June 8, 1999, after it had run newspaper ads calling the world body “essential to the basic foreign policy objectives of this country.”

                Hillary gave special thanks to Chamber President Tom Donohue and Clinton Ambassador Craig Johnstone, who became senior vice-president for the Chamber.

                Curiously, Mrs. Clinton has also enlisted important elements of the U.S. Catholic Church in her pro-U.N. crusade. 

                Although she is in favor of abortion on demand, including partial birth abortion,  she celebrated the 50th anniversary of the U.N.’s Declaration of Human Rights, also dubbed “Human Rights Day,”  with a speech at Georgetown University, the nation’s oldest Catholic University, on December 10, 1998. She was introduced  by Catholic Priest Leo O’Donovan, the president of Georgetown, who referred to the First Lady as “remarkable” and a “marvelous” leader.

                As First Lady, Mrs. Clinton made  a regular practice of celebrating “Human Rights Day.” She didn’t devote as much

attention to the “Bill of Rights Day,” December 15.  This is the anniversary of the

ratification of the first  ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

                Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, chaired the U.N. commission that drafted the U. N. Declaration of Human Rights and she served as the U.S. delegate to the U.N. from 1945-1953. Mrs. Clinton frequently points to Mrs. Roosevelt as a role model.

                Mrs. Roosevelt, like Mrs. Clinton, was betrayed and embarrassed by her husband, who carried on extramarital affairs. And although Eleanor Roosevelt has been viewed as an activist for women’s rights, she conducted a lesbian relationship with Lorena Hickok, a reporter who covered FDR’s presidential campaign. [71]

                Mrs. Clinton tried to “communicate” with Mrs. Roosevelt through a “channeling” session or voodoo-like seance arranged by Jean Houston of the Foundation for Mind  Research Though she favors the use of LSD

in some settings to facilitate spirituality, there is no evidence Houston used the substance on Hillary Clinton during their meetings together.

                Although Senator Trent Lott (R-La.) has said that Senator Clinton will “have to get used” to being but one of 100 members of the U.S. Senate, some members were still said to be suspicious that “she’s using the Senate as a steppingstone for the presidency.” [72] Clinton biographer Barbara Olson flatly predicts that she  will run for the White House.
