Biden Promises a ‘New World Order’ (Video)

Joe Biden promised a “new world order” at a Business Roundtable CEO Quarterly Meeting on Monday.

QUICK FACTS:
  • Joe Biden on Monday discussed a “new world order” at a Business Roundtable CEO Quarterly Meeting, according to The White House.
  • “And now is a time when things are shifting,” Biden said, referring to the world economy and the tens of millions who died amid the wars of the first half of the 20th century. “We’re going to—there’s going to be a new world order out there, and we’ve got to lead it. And we’ve got to unite the rest of the free world in doing it.”
  • Wikipedia calls theories about a “secretly emerging totalitarian world government” attempting to establish a New World Order a “conspiracy theory.”
  • According to The Independent, the New World Order conspiracy theory “dates back decades, and holds that a nefarious elite led by the United Nations and other shadowy forces is planning to install a single transnational global government via the use of force—possibly with the involvement of US agencies including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which some believe is preparing to put Americans in concentration camps.”
  • Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) wrote on Twitter Tuesday, “No, Joe Biden, there is no new world order coming on my watch.”
  • Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) tweeted the same day, “We’re on the verge of WW3 and globalists want the new world order.”

BIDEN’S STATEMENT IN CONTEXT:

“You know we are in an inflection point, I believe, in the world economy,” Biden said. “Not just the economy, the world. It occurs every three or four generations. As one of the top military people said to me in a secure meeting the other day, 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946 and since then we established a liberal world order and that hadn’t happened in a long while. Lot of people dying [now], but nowhere near the chaos. And now’s the time when things are shifting. There’s gonna be a new world order out there, and we’ve gotta lead it. And we’ve gotta unite the rest of the world in doing it.”

BACKGROUND:
  • Biden has been defending the concept of a New World Order since the early ’90s. Then-Senator Biden wrote an op-ed titled “How I Learned to Love the New World Order,” confirmed by Snopes to have been published by The Wall Street Journal on April 23, 1992.
  • In 2013, at the annual Export-Import Bank conference, then-Vice President Biden said, “The affirmative task we have now is to create a new world order.” “We have to update the global rules of the road and we have to do it in a way that maximizes benefits for everyone because obviously it is overwhelmingly in our interest. This isn’t a zero-sum game, it is overwhelmingly in our interests that China prospers,” Biden went on to say. “We want everybody to have a little money.”
  • The New World Order phrase was famously invoked by former President George H.W. Bush during the Persian Gulf crisis in 1990, The Daily Mail notes. “Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective—a new world order—can emerge,” Bush said. “A new era—freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace.”
