Buchanan Jumps GOP Ship, Seeks Reform Party Nomination
The TiM Editor Joins Him after
the American Patriots' "Main Man" Delivers a Speech on the "New
FROM WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Topic: NORTH AMERICAN AFFAIRS
WESTERN AUSTRALIA, Oct. 27 - Pat Buchanan has made it official. He is jumping the
Republican Party ship and seeking the nomination as the Reform Party's presidential
candidate. Buchanan made the long-awaited announcement at a Falls Church, Virginia, news
conference on Monday, Oct. 25.
Parts of Buchanan's speech that he was leaving the Grand
Old Party (GOP) because it has evolved into a Doleful Bush League (our term, not
Buchanan's), serving the interests of the New World Order rather than those of the
American people (which is what Buchanan did say), may sound to regular TiM reader like
some of our past editorials. Such as his critical several references to the "godless
New World Order elites," for example.
We are flattered, naturally, but can assure you that that's only a coincidence which
proves that independent minds CAN think alike - independently. To be sure, Buchanan has
been supportive of this writer's and the Truth in Media work, as can be seen from the note
he sent to us almost exactly a year ago (Oct. 28, 1998), in which he wrote:
"Excellent piece in the Chronicles on the Globalist Bear.
Thanks for the advance copy. The U.S. is getting tied down everywhere: Eastern Europe,
Kosovo, Bosnia, the West Bank. A day of reckoning is coming.
Pat" (if you click on the Buchanan memo image at
our Web site, you can read the TiM editor's Chronicles column about which he was
commenting - "Globalist Bear in Sheep's
But that Buchanan writes his own speeches. We had nothing to do with the Oct. 25 one,
titled, "The New Patriotism," from which we bring you some excerpts:
Today, candor compels us to admit that our vaunted
two-party system is a snare and a delusion, a fraud upon the nation. Our two parties have
become nothing but two wings of the same bird of prey. On foreign and trade policy, open
borders and centralized power, our Beltway parties have become identical twins.
Both supported NAFTA and GATT and the surrender of our national
sovereignty to the WTO. Both supported the extension of nuclear war guarantees to the
borders of Russia. Both supported the illegal war on Serbia. Both support IMF bailouts of
corrupt regimes. Both vote for MFN trade privileges for a Communist Chinese regime that
today targets missiles on American cities. The appeasement of Beijing is a bipartisan
disgrace, and we will not be a part of it.
Neither party speaks for the forgotten Americans whose jobs were
sent overseas to finance the boom market of the 1990s that the rest of us enjoy. Both
parties are addicted to soft money. Both write laws with lobbyists looking over their
shoulders. Both embrace the unprincipled politics of triangulation.
And neither fights today with conviction and courage to rescue
God's country from the cultural and moral pit into which she has fallen. The day of the
outsider is over in the Beltway parties; the money men have seen to that. Never again will
our political establishment permit a dissident to come as close to capturing a nomination
as we did in 1996. They have rearranged the primary schedule and rigged the game to
protect the party favorites.
Candidates of ideas need not apply, as both parties seek out the
hollow men, the malleable men, willing to read from teleprompters speeches scripted by
consultants and pollsters for whom the latest print-out from the Focus Group is sacred
We choose not to play our assigned role in their sham election.
My friends, this year is our last chance to save our republic, before she disappears into
the godless New World Order that our elites are constructing in a betrayal of everything
for which our Founding Fathers lived, fought, and died.
Only the Reform Party offers the hope of a real debate and a true
choice of destinies for our country. "If we don't go now, Pat," I have been told
by loyalists all across America, "every cause for which we fought for seven years
will die." Well, we can't let those causes die, because they are America's cause. So
let me say to the money boys and the Beltway elites who think that, at long last, they
have pulled up their drawbridge and locked us out forever: You don't know this peasant
army. We have not yet begun to fight.
So, let me lay out our Patriots' Road for America. With the Cold
War over, we shall craft a foreign policy for a new century rooted in the great tradition
of Washington, Jefferson and John Quincy Adams who wrote:
Wherever the standard of freedom and independence...shall be
unfurled, there will [America's] heart, her benedictions and her prayers be....But she
goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy.
I pledge to you: I will never send an American army to fight in a
foreign war, unless our country is attacked or our vital interests are imperiled.
They call us "isolationists." Well, if they mean I
intend to isolate America from the bloody territorial and ethnic wars of the new century,
I plead guilty. It is the first duty of a statesman: to keep his country out of wars that
are not his country's quarrel. And the junk yards of history are strewn with the wreckage
of republics and empires that failed to learn that lesson.
We intend to dust off an ancient document and restore it to its
rightful place as the altar piece of American government. You may have heard of it. It's
called the Constitution of the United States. Under the Constitution, before America goes
to war, the Congress must declare war. By my reading of the Constitution, the soldiers,
sailors, airmen and Marines who take an oath of loyalty to the United States, are never to
be used as the imperial troops of anybody's New World Order. We will bring our soldiers
home where they belong; and rebuild our military might and morale so no nation will dare
And the first step to restore that morale is to evict from the
Bully Pulpit of the Oval Office, our own Elmer Gantry, Mr. Clinton, whose desecration of
that temple of our civilization, and squalid behavior, render him unfit to serve as
Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States.
We Americans are a good and generous people. Our tradition of
being first at the scene of natural disasters, providing food and shelter for the victims,
is rooted in deep our hearts. That tradition we shall maintain. But IMF bailouts of
deadbeat dictators must end; and we must phase out foreign aid and start looking out for
the forgotten Americans right here in the U.S.A. [
But of all the needs of this nation, none is greater for our
peace and happiness than racial reconciliation. The backsliding toward
hyphenated-Americanism must end. Let us abolish quotas and set-asides, these un-American
devices that reward individuals based on what color they are, or what continent their
kinfolk came from. Let us abandon a sterile and futile politics of victims-and-villains,
and rediscover what brings us all together as one nation and one people. All of us must
learn our English language. All of us must come to know our common history, heritage, and
American heroes, so we can get our great Melting Pot working its magic again.
Any man or woman from any continent or any country can be a good
American. We know that. But it takes time to assimilate the thirty million who have come
in the last thirty years. And we need time. Indeed, we need a time-out on legal
immigration, to ease the downward pressure on workers' wages and to defeat the forces of
separatism that threaten us and nations all over the world. [
If America stands for anything in this world, it is freedom. Yet
today America is among the most over-taxed, over-regulated, and over-governed societies in
history. Our Federal Government collects a fifth of all the wealth we produce and controls
perhaps half of it. [
We need a President and a Congress that will pick up the whip the
Founding Fathers left in Article III of the Constitution-to herd the justices back into
the narrow stalls to which they were first consigned by Hamilton and Madison.
What is a self-governing people doing, waiting meekly each week
for nine jurists to tell us how we may govern ourselves? As our fathers threw off a
tyranny of kings, let us throw off this tyranny of judges-and let America be America
Friends, ours is truly the best of times and the worst of times.
With our miraculous advances in medicine, science, and technology, none of us would want
to go back to yesterday. But something good has been lost from those years as well: The
old patriotism, a popular culture that undergirded the values of faith, family, and
country, the idea that we Americans are a people who sacrifice and suffer together, and go
forward together, the mutual respect, the sense of limits, the good manners; all are gone.
My life has been spent in the great and good vocations of politics, journalism, and
government. None commands the respect it once did; all today are in disrepute.
I cannot think of a time since Watergate, so poisoned with rancor
and hostility, and I don't know if any president can change that, the way Ronald Reagan
infused his time with his spirit and unabashed love of country. But I do know this: I will
America needs a Government of National Unity and Reconciliation
that draws from the best of all parties, and I promise you: I will create that kind of
government. And if we build it, they will come.
My friends, all the great empires of Europe that began our
century so full of swagger and bombast came crashing down to ruin. All are now
surrendering their identities and their independence to a super state that pays homage to
the god of Mammon.
America alone still endures, independent and free. The great
questions before us are these: Shall we, too, yield to their temptation, follow their
path, and suffer their fate? Is the call to empire irresistible? Is a world government
inevitable? Or can America remain forever a light unto the nations, an example to mankind
of how a free people should govern themselves, a republic above whose sovereignty stands
the sovereignty of God alone.
That is our cause. And so it is that in the name of the Founding
Fathers, we go forth to rescue America, and we will not quit this fight as long as there
is breath within us.
God save the Republic, and God bless America."
--- TiM Ed.:
So there you have it
Pat Buchanan, a man and an American patriot who does not want
us to become slaves of the godless New World Order and worshipers of the Golden Calf - the
Almighty Dollar. Naturally, people like that are anathema to the high priests of the New
World Order, such as the leaders of the Republican and Democratic parties. Which is why
Buchanan has also been ostracized and cheated by the Golden Calf-worshipping parties, such
as his own GOP (see "Was Buchanan Robbed in
Arizona?" - www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins/tim96-03a.html).
So now it is time for the TiM editor also to jump the GOP ship. The only reason he
maintained his Republican Party card over the years of the GOP deterioration was to be
able to support men like Buchanan in the primaries. The alternative was voting for a
write-in presidential candidate - our dog, Fred the Bassett - as this writer said in a
speech to the Reform Party of Arizona annual meeting in September 1998 (see www.truthinmedia.org/Speeches/rsd-reform.html).
Well, now that's no longer necessary. Our Fred the Bassett would be much happier
chewing on his bone in Phoenix, than doing the same at the White House. Too many bad odors
left behind by the Clinton Administration for a sensitive bassett hound nose.
So on this day, Wednesday, Oct. 27, 1999, this proud American is publicly resigning his
party membership in the GOP, and declaring that as soon as he is back in the States from
this 'round the world trip, he intends to complete the necessary paperwork for becoming a
voting member of the Reform Party of America.
Go Pat go! Let's return the truth and liberty to all Americans!
