Democratic President Joe Biden created quite a stir this week at a Business Roundtable’s CEO Quarterly Meeting. He indicated that what was happening in the world right now was creating “significant opportunities” that would begin a “new world order.”
Biden was to give a brief speech that focused on Russia’s war against Ukraine and the economic impact on America’s future. It was also to include some words on his administration’s plan to deal with climate change.
Before he was finished, he said that what is happening globally is going to create significant opportunities to make real changes. Biden went on to describe that we are at an “inflection point” in the world economy and he said that this kind of opportunity only comes around every three or four generations.
The president said that one of his top military leaders told him in a secure meeting that 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946 and, since then, the government was able to establish a liberal world order.
Though his words were at times hard to connect, Biden said, “A lot of people died, but nowhere near the chaos. And now’s the time when things are shifting. We’re going, there’s gonna 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 and doing it.”
No one is completely sure of what exactly Biden was talking about, but this comes as Russia continues its month-long war in Europe under the cruel leadership of President Vladimir Putin.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has squarely placed the blame for Russia’s invasion on President Biden’s refusal to launch sanctions against Russia before they started their invasion. When Zelenskyy spoke with United States senators, he said that if sanctions had started a month ago, there would not have been a war. The Ukrainian president was not alone, there were a number of officials that indicated sanctions could have been preventative in a Russian attack.
Zelenskyy said before the invasion. “We will not need your sanctions after there is a bombardment, or after our state is shot at, or if we have no more borders, we do not have an economy, or parts of our state is occupied.”
And now that what these leaders warned about happening is actually happening, Biden is talking about a “new world order.” A conspiracy theory about this new order actually goes back for decades. There is a belief that an elite group of people led by the United Nations along with hidden forces is planning to develop a single transnational global government, even if it involves the use of force.
Talk about these ideas spread across social media after Biden’s short roundtable speech. The conspiracy revolves around the idea that a secretive globalist authority is going to gain control of the world under one totalitarian regime. In other words, it will cut out sovereign countries with freedom for every citizen.
After Biden described seeking out the significant opportunities in the world right now, and the role that America has in leading this new world order, he challenged those CEOs to “unite the rest of the free world in doing it.”
This all caused the phrase “new world order” to be one of the top trending topics on Twitter by Tuesday morning. And Biden’s comments were widely shared in QAnon Telegram, according to Newsweek.
Unfortunately, the confusion within Biden’s own words has left many people just wondering what in the world he was really talking about. Was it an intentional signal to some hidden players that the time is coming? Or was it just a poor use of a phrase that people see as a lightning rod?
