If you think the New World Order and a global government are relatively recent ideas that began with Bush the Elder, George H. W. Bush, think again.
Those ideas can be traced back at least to the Kennedy Administration, but under a different terminology — the Arms Control and Disarmament Act of 1961, which began as H.R. 9118. The bill was passed by both houses of Congress and, on September 26, 1961, was signed into law, becoming 22 U.S.C. § 2551.
This is how radical the Arms Control and Disarmament Act is. (Click here for the Act in PDF.)
On page 1, the Act declares that “An ultimate goal of the United States is a world which is free from the scourge of war and the dangers and burdens of armaments; in which the use of force has been subordinated to the rule of law….”
The purpose of the Act is “to provide impetus toward this goal by creating a new agency of peace to deal with the problem of reduction and control of armaments looking toward ultimate world disarmament.”
Here’s a screen shot I took from the Act:
The job of this new federal “agency of peace” is “to provide the essential scientific, economic, political, military, psychological and technological information upon which realistic arms control and disarmament policy must be based.”
The Act defines “arms control” and “disarmament” as “the identification, verification, inspection, limitation, control, reduction, or elimination, of armed forces and armaments of all kinds under international agreement including the necessary steps taken under such an agreement to establish an effective system of international control, or to create and strengthen international organizations for the maintenance of peace.”
Translated into simpler English, the Arms Control and Disarmament Act aims at none other than the elimination of the U.S. military and of all civilian firearms (“armaments of all kinds”) — all to be placed under an international body (“system of international control”).
The “agency of peace” turned out to be the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA), an independent agency of the United States government — an agency established through a separate statute passed by Congress, which exists outside of the federal executive departments (those headed by a Cabinet secretary), and which while constitutionally part of the executive branch, is independent of presidential control, usually because the president’s power to dismiss the agency head or a member is limited.
In 1997, the Clinton administration integrated the ACDA with the State Department. The ACDA’s executive is Obama appointee Under Secretary Rose Gottemoeller. She communicates with the president (Obama) through the secretary of state (John Kerry).
The ACDA’s current programs appear to be international in focus:
- Stopping Nuclear Testing
- Banning Chemical Weapons
- Reducing Strategic Nuclear Arms
- Keeping Nuclear Weapons out of the hands of rogue states
- Preventing the use of disease as a weapon of war
Since its passage into law, the Arms Control and Disarmament Act has been amended 9 times, the most recent amendment was in 1989 in the George H. W. Bush administration.
