What was John McCain thinking?
Conservatives everywhere are now asking that question after he made some startling comments.
His remarks were about his support for the New World Order and many Americans were left stunned.
In a speech delivered at the Brussels Forum, which was organized by an international think tank, McCain proclaimed his fierce loyalty to the European Union and the New World Order.
“The world “cries out for American and European leadership” through the EU and Nato, US senator John McCain said on Friday (24 March).
In a “new world order under enormous strain” and in “the titanic struggle with forces of radicalism … we can’t stand by and lament, we’ve got to be involved,” said McCain, a former Republican presidential candidate who is now chairman of the armed services committee in the US Senate.
Speaking at the Brussels Forum, a conference organised by the German Marshall Fund, a transatlantic think tank, he said that the EU and the US needed to develop “more cooperation, more connectivity”.
“I trust the EU,” he said, defending an opposite view from that of US president Donald Trump, who said in January that the UK “was so smart in getting out” of the EU and that Nato was “obsolete”.
He said that the EU was “one of the most important alliances” for the US and that the EU and Nato were “the best two sums in history”, which have maintained peace for the last 70 years.”
McCain – like all globalists – is desperate to preserve the post-World War 2 world order.
Internationalism has dominated global politics since the allied victory and liberal values such as trade, open borders and interventionist foreign policy have reigned supreme.
But Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, and the election of Donald Trump, were a working-class uprising against the global order.
The “Brexit” vote signaled the EU was on shaky ground.
Populist movements in France, Italy and the Netherlands have also gained support, in part, on their promises to lead their countries out of the globalist EU and restore national sovereignty.
In America, Donald Trump won the election by rallying voters to his message of “America First.”
His promise to secure the borders, end nation building wars, and renegotiate international trade deals carried the day.
McCain is right to be worried about the future of the world order.
But he is wrong to cast his lot with the globalists.
