The year was 1999. Hillary Clinton was the true-believing first lady to her disgraced, pandering husband, Bill Clinton. The occasion was the presentation of the Norman Cousins’ award to Walter Cronkite by the World Federalist Association, an organization in favor of replacing national governments with a single, all powerful, progressive one-world government. The man was Walter Cronkite. The speech can be read here (edited to be less embarrassing to Cronkite and Clinton), or watched here.
Around 14:00 in the video, Cronkite said:
Even as with the American rejection of the League of Nations, our failure to live up to our obligations to the United Nations is led by a handful of willful senators who choose to pursue their narrow, selfish political objectives at the cost of our nation’s conscience.They pander to and are supported by the Christian Coalition and the rest of the religious right wing. Their leader, Pat Robertson, has written that we should have a world government but only when the messiah arrives. Any attempt to achieve world order before that time must be the work of the Devil!
The following section of the speech as recorded in the written text is not to be found in the video.
This small but well-organized group, has intimidated both the Republican Party and the Clinton administration. It has attacked each of our Presidents since FDR for supporting the United Nations. Robertson explains that these Presidents were and are the unwitting agents of Lucifer.
What he actually says is:
Well join me… I’m glad to sit here at the right hand of Satan.
At 15:30 the viewer will see Hillary Clinton praising Walter Cronkite for his tireless service for leftist and one-world-government causes, and cheering on the one world government plans of the World Federalist Association.
Jerome R. Corsi writes:
The World Federalist Association, now known as Citizens for Global Solutions, says its aim is to be build a “future in which nations work together to abolish war, protect our rights and freedoms and solve the problems facing humanity that no nation can solve alone.”
The YouTube.com video also recalls a 1993 award the World Federalist Association gave to journalist Strobe Talbot for an editorial he wrote in Time magazine July 20, 1992.
Talbott argued that in the next hundred years, “nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority.”
The video noted that in 1993, President Bill Clinton appointed Talbott ambassador at large.
Clinton had met Talbott at Oxford University, where they were both Rhodes Scholars.
