Bill Clinton's Foundational Philosophy for the Socialist
At his acceptance speech, President Clinton singled out
Dr. Carroll Quigley as being one whom helped to form his political outlook.
Quigley was a liberal academic with a very identifiable world view.
Quigley is known principally for his 1,338 page tome called Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Times
originally published in 1966.
Quigley wrote approvingly of the power, influence and
activities of what he called "the network" that tries to rule the Western
world. The "network" always prefers Big Government, big federal spending,
and the stability of a planned society rather than the uncertainties of the
Quigley described the
Council on Foreign Relations as one of several "front"
organizations set up by the network for the purpose of advancing its
He boasted: "I know of the operations of
this network because I have studied it for 20 years and was permitted for two
years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records."
Quigley asserted that he was personally acquainted with the
dynastic families of the super-rich, and he traced their
immense power and influence. For the most part, he was a fan of their goals and
policies and said that his chief difference with the "network" was that "it
wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant
enough to be known."
The "Hope" in his book's title represented the
collectivist one-world society that will exist when
the "network" achieves its goal of consolidating its rule. All who resist this
man-made millennium represent the "Tragedy," and Quigley asserted that it was
too late for ordinary people to fight it.
The economic comrade of Clinton's who served as an economics
official in the commerce Department, helped form his economic strategy is Derek
Shearer, longtime associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies,
"which is committed to
socialism in America and sides with the Soviet Union on almost every important
foreign policy issue," according to a 1988 article in Policy Review.
In the book Economic Democracy, written with Martin
Cornoy, Shearer says corporations are too "impersonal and powerful" and that a
strategy to achieve economic democracy "must start by dismantling, or at least
restricting, the power of these corporations." Shearer and Carnoy call for a
"democratically" planned economy - one planned by government bureaucrats. They
also call for nothing less than complete government control of capital markets.
"A strategy of reform," they
write, "must transfer capital from the corporations to the public....
The logical vehicle for that process should be the government."
objective, according to the book, is to provide a vehicle for governmental
takeovers of entire industries "without the immediate financial and ideological
burdens that large-scale nationalization efforts would entail." This has been
and continues to be the strategy employed with the government intervention into
the tobacco industry
and the takeover of the
health care industry.
Shearer later served as
foreign policy advisor to Vice President Gore during the 2000 Presidential
campaign and to Senator Hillary Clinton in the 2007-2008 Presidential primary
contests. He is currently Director of the
McKinnon Center for Global Affairs at Occidental
Bill Clinton's vision didn't put
people first, it put government first.
Beyond all the rhetoric and ballyhoo of the Clinton
administration, many American people recognized the characteristic signature of
the liberal agenda, including its fascination with bloated bureaucracy,
exploitation of the taxpayer for the sake of bigger and bigger government, and
all the other socialized programs connected with issues such as
health Care and the environment
Though his policies claimed to be for "the best of
the country," their ends aim at the destruction of national patriotism and
The Clinton administration had an
Just as frightening is that the
American people either seemed
not to understand, didn't care or actually enjoyed and supported the socialist
idea of having to crawl up to the government feeding trough for anything
and everything from health care to food to housing.
No longer did Americans ask what
they can do for their country. Instead, Americans wanted to know what the
country would do for them.
Bill Clinton was not alone in this move toward
Socialism. The United States Congress and Democratic Party is infested with
many Socialists. And, they no longer hide their affiliations. There are at
least 58 members of Congress -- 57 Democrats and one independent -- who have
signed onto the agenda of the
of America. The group in the House of Representatives calls itself the
Progressive Caucus. [Socialists in Congress, Jane Chastain,
WorldNetDaily, Nov. 30, 1998]
Clinton's Goal for the 21st.
Bill Clinton's real goal was the
creation of a new
government-industrial complex similar to the corporate state established
in Italy in the 1930s. In Bill Clinton's America,
Washington would dictate the
details of daily economic life in an unprecedented way. His policies
abounded in government interventions into the private sector, each with untold
impact on the ability of American business to expand and create new jobs for
The Clinton's want, for example, for the federal
government to create a new bureaucracy to determine how much money each worker,
manager, and owner of a business should be paid. His proposals required
government bureaucrats to come up with a complex formula to penalize "excessive
pay" in the private sector; such "excess" would not be allowed to be included
as a legitimate business expense for tax purposes.
proposed health care plan, American citizens would be required to utilize a
government chosen doctor for their health care and those who chose to obtain
services with their own money would be considered criminals. Although he did
not manage to get that accomplished during his tenure in office, years later
President Barack Obama forced through Congress a socialist healthcare bill
requiring Americans to purchase health insurance from government approved
vendors or face criminalization and fines.
Socialism is government ownership
and/or control over the basic means of production and distribution of services
This means the government controls everything,
including you. Socialism, like Communism, is a consolidate and control the
wealth program; not a share-the-wealth program as many would have you
Bill Clinton introduced the Socialist State that Barack Obama
later codified in America.
The following things are characteristic of
socialistic forms of government proposed by progressives and illustrated by
Hillary Clinton's "village".
- The individual loses all rights and everything is done in
the name of the commonwealth (public) (read - "village"); you are officially
the property of the state and not an individual with wants, desires, and needs.
There is only the rich and the commonwealth. If you are not rich, then
you are a member of the commonwealth. The needs and wants of the rich come
before the needs and wants of the commonwealth. In the commonwealth there are
no individuals and no one has any rights whatsoever. All decisions in your
behalf are made by the state. Your children are the property of the state and
it is decided by the state what they will learn, who will teach them, and what
will become of them. As a parent, you have little or no say in what becomes of
your children, all decisions are made by the government and you either accept
their control or become an enemy of the state.
- The government owns and/or controls the basic means of
production and distribution of services and goods. We are told that
business and other things will be regulated but that we will still be free.
Free to do what? What a contradiction of terms. How can anyone have a Socialist
form of government with freedom? All business and land,
if not owned by the government or the rich, is controlled and taxed very
heavily. As stated, in a Socialist form of government the rich rule and
have the power, not the people. They will operate under the illusion of a free
Keep in mind the control the government has taken
in recent years of tobacco,
health care, the environment, automobile manufacturing, the
financial sector, and the airline industry.
Vice President Al Gore
announced new efforts to make air travel safer and Americans seem eager to
accept the further erosion of their rights and pay even higher tarifs to
government to protect them from an unseen enemy. One lady I recently
travelled with told me that she was willing to undergo an extensive selective
search of her luggage "if it would make traveling safer." Safer than
what? I ask. The Clinton administration took advantage of the crash of TWA
800 to play on the fears of American travellers. It would seem a foregone
conclusion that the airplane was brought down by a terrorist act - regardless
of the fact there is no conclusive evidence to date that it was a criminal act.
Later, in the Bush administration, the terrorist attack on 9/11 only solidified
the governments intrusion into the airline industry. The heightened state of
security at American airports is nothing more than another ploy of the
government to further control the airline business and raise another "hidden"
tax to pay for it.
- The creation of a federal or state police force; the
purpose of which is to put down disturbances, political or otherwise, "root"
out political enemies, ensure the loyalty of the people, and enforce laws upon
taxation, population control, religion,
the workplace, and the family unit.
Consider Clinton's now infamous
100,000 more police officers on the street. Along with the government funded of
those officers comes the federal control over how the recipients of the funding
are used. Will this new police force be held accountable like the FBI? Attorney
General Janet Reno promoted Larry Pottswho coordinated the Waco
raid and was censured for his role in the 1992 Ruby Ridge, Idaho, shoot-out --
to deputy director of the FBI.
- The subjection or elimination, generally the latter, of
all religious institutions, with the exception of a state approved and
mandated religion. This "New World Order" institution will also be used to ensure
the loyalty of the people and will be used in the collection of taxes.
The Clinton presidency clearly presented a clear and present
danger to the traditional American way of life that has been grounded in
Judeo-Christian principles. But a much greater danger is on the horizon. This
danger is the socialistic serpentine worldwide government that the Scriptures
say will emerge in the end times (Rev. 13:7-8). This world empire, based in a
reunified Europe, will abrogate the sovereignty of every other nation on the
face of the earth. Its government will be run by godless, amoral Humanists who
will worship the creation rather than the Creator (Romans. 1:25).
The average American Citizen isn't going to give up his
Constitution for some World Government too easily. We and our ancestors have
fought too long and shed too much blood for it to give up easily.
plan is for Americans to give up their freedom willingly. Socialist reform is
the only way that a one world order can be established without a direct

President George W. Bush appears to have made Bill Clinton's dream come
true with the nationalization of America's banks in 2008. Amidst the largest
financial crisis since the Great Depression, the Bush administration handed 125
billion dollars to nine of Wall Street's richest banks after demanding from
them to sell stock in their companies to the U.S. government. "The American
people must understand that this carefully structured plan is aimed at
helping you," Bush said. But this will do little to help the economy that
is crumbling around ordinary U.S. citizens, according to many
Under the Paulson plan, the U.S. will receive 5 percent
interest on the bank shares it purchases for three years and nine percent

stock he purchased from General Electric.
