A video of Vice President Joe Biden went viral (yet again) when he used the phrase “New World Order” in his speech to the Export-Import bank last week. But, in context, Biden wasn’t calling for action in the sinister “globalist agenda to create a one world system of government in his speech” as many conspiracy theorists assumed given the short clip making its rounds on the Internet.
Here’s a short excerpt of the Vice President’s remarks:
The task we have now is to actually create a new world order. Because the global order is changing again, and the institutions that have worked so well in the post-World War II era for decades, they need to be strengthened, and some have to be changed. So we have to do what we do best, we have to lead. We have to lead. We have to update the global rules of the road. We have to do it in a way that maximize benefits for everyone, because obviously, it’s overwhelmingly in our interest, this is not a zero sum game, it’s overwhelmingly in our interest that China prosper, that Mongolia prosper, that nations big and large, east and west, in Latin America and in Africa, prosper, because you know that old expression, they asked Willie Sutton why he robbed banks, he said ‘that’s where the money is.’ We want everybody to have a little money to make sure they can buy American products. So the paradox — so we don’t view, the President and I and Fred [Hochberg, President of the Export-Import Bank], we don’t view economic growth as a zero sum game here, that somehow we grow and it’s not in our interests if other powers grow as well. That’s the paradox of this new global order. So much of our success depends on the success of those with whom we compete.
While one probably shouldn’t read Biden’s remarks as a call for one world government, you can be sure of one thing: It was a full endorsement of continued American interventionist foreign policy complete with pumping American taxpayer money into foreign nations as well as unConstitutional military adventurism. Basically, it sounds like Biden and company just want to double down in all of the areas the United States has screwed up in the past 70 or so years.
Here’s the entire speech:
