The New World Order is on its last legs because of President Trump, says the Council on Foreign Relations.
“Liberalism is in retreat. Democracies are feeling the effects of growing populism. Parties of the political extremes have gained ground in Europe,” wrote the globalist think tank’s Charles Haass last week.
“Even the US is experiencing unprecedented attacks from its own president on the country’s media, courts, and law-enforcement institutions.”
In other words, Trump has attacked the corporate propaganda media, the liberal kangaroo courts who uphold lawless sanctuary city policies, and the corrupt leadership at the top of the FBI and former President Obama’s DoJ who conspired against Trump and covered for Hillary Clinton.
Interestingly, Haass highlights how populism’s rise worldwide is due to the failures of globalism!
“There are several reasons why all this is happening, and why now,” he wrote. “The rise of populism is in part a response to stagnating incomes and job loss, owing mostly to new technologies but widely attributed to imports and immigrants.”
“Nationalism is a tool increasingly used by leaders to bolster their authority, especially amid difficult economic and political conditions. And global institutions have failed to adapt to new power balances and technologies.”
But the biggest factor in the downfall of the New World Order is Trump’s “America First” policies, he said.
“But the weakening of the liberal world order is due, more than anything else, to the changed attitude of the U.S. Under President Donald Trump, the U.S. decided against joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership and to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.”
“It has threatened to leave the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Iran nuclear deal,” he continued. “It has unilaterally introduced steel and aluminum tariffs, relying on a justification (national security) that others could use, in the process placing the world at risk of a trade war. It has raised questions about its commitment to NATO and other alliance relationships. And it rarely speaks about democracy or human rights.”
“‘America First’ and the liberal world order seem incompatible,” he added.
No kidding. One represents sovereignty, self-determination, and national pride. The other represents serfdom, global governance, and erosion of national identity.Read More...
