Bolton on the Wall

Wednesday, 10 August 2005 12:00 AM

That opinion was bolstered by a Chicago Sun-Times column by John O'Sullivan on Tuesday, "U.N. ripe for reform, American-style" where he laid it all out in the starkest of terms.

Noting that the president sent Mr. Bolton up to the tower of Babel on the East River to clean up the place, O'Sullivan wrote that "Senate Democrats and other 'friends of the U.N.' are setting out to hamstring Bolton before he can get started."

He goes on to explain why this slimy bunch is out to cut the legs out from underneath Bolton, and throw him off the wall where he stands guard against the idiots who will never be satisfied until they have wrung every shred out of our national sovereignty and handed us over to the world governance of the international socialist order they lust after.

At the root of their vast discomfort is Washington's stated aim to reduce the size of the powerful U.N. Security Council so that it can act promptly to deal with international crises while at the same time avoiding handing over to the U.N. more powers, authority or independent financial resources, such as the authority to levy taxes or force legalized government-promoted abortion down the throats of member nations.

That's what it's all about. And that's what is frightening the wits out of the loony Democrat left. They worship at the altar of the sacred U.N. Security Council - after all, that's where all the mischief they love begins. Pinpointing one of the Council's creations, the Heritage Foundation's Nile Gardiner wrote that "The U.N. will also need to abolish its widely discredited Commission on Human Rights. ..."

That's the bunch that routinely puts freedom-loving nations such as Castro's Cuba in charge of safeguarding human rights.

This is not the kind of reform the U.N. worshippers want.

According to O'Sullivan, "What the U.N. bureaucracy, the European Union, the smaller member-states, and liberal Democrats want is a U.N. that would be the center of a growing nexus of 'world governance' in which U.N. and other transnational bodies, funded by taxes on international transactions and policed by NGOs [non-government organizations], would exercise increasing authority over member-states on behalf of 'the international community' in such matters as climate change, resource exploitation and international investment operations."

He then gets to the heart of the matter: "In essence, the debate over U.N. reform is ultimately about whether sovereign nation states or transnational U.N. bodies should be the main players in international relations. That helps to explain why the multilateralist Democrats in the Senate last May issued a report in which they tried to blame the oil-for-food scandal partly on the United States and Britain for not blowing the whistle on it earlier - and why they opposed sending such a strong advocate of U.S. national interests as John Bolton to Turtle Bay."

He writes of what he calls the "tranzis" - the transnationalists who believe that transnational U.N. bodies and not sovereign nation states such as the good old USA should be the main players in international relations. In other words, just dump the State Department and hand its functions over to the U.N.

O'Sullivan explained that these "largely unaccountable bureaucrats have been the cutting edge of the 'tranzi' revolution, by manipulating U.N. conferences on issues from climate change to sustainable development, they have imposed a sort of political agenda for 'global governance' on national governments. And yet, because they are deeply stained by the oil-for-food scandal, they are today ill-placed to resist an attack on their powers and privileges.

"Bolton has the chance to halt the transnational revolution in its tracks by way of reforming a dysfunctional U.N.," O'Sullivan wrote. After what the Senate Democrats did to him on the tranzis' behalf in the confirmation process, he has every reason to show no quarter."

On the wall with John Bolton is the indomitable Austin Ruse, who heads C-Fam, the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute, and the Culture of Life organization). For years Ruse has been a thorn in the side of the tranzis, and, to the horror of the abortion-crazed NSDAP, catching them time after time at their never-ending attempts to force sovereign states to promote abortion within their borders.

During the 2004 presidential campaign he wrote of the Democrat Party platform putting the NSDAP on record as espousing abortion on demand and taxpayer funding for the gruesome procedure. He quotes the platform "Because we believe in the privacy and equality of women, we stand proudly for a woman's right to choose, consistent with Roe v. Wade, and regardless of her ability to pay." OK, suckers, pony up on behalf of future mommies who want to snuff their unborn babies but can't afford to pay Planned Parenthood's fees.

This is largely the U.N.'s position as well, the kind of thing Bolton as our ambassador threatens. No wonder the NSDAP abhors the idea of having him on the wall.

Thank God he's there.
