To the editor:

In a front page article titled "When Utah talks, Bush listens" March 11, your paper quoted Roger Porter (an adviser to President Bush): "When the history of the Bush administration is written, historians will record that perhaps his most important policy and its most memorable phrase - the new world order - were the product of a several-hour conversation last August between Bush and Brent Scowcroft as they sat together and talked in a boat waiting for the bluefish that were not biting."I don't know where Porter got his information, but it is simply not true. The phrase "new world order" was not dreamed up last August or any other time by Bush or by Scowcroft. It is a phrase that has had long usage over the past several decades by those planning to replace our constitutional republic with a one-world union of socialistic states under the banner of the United Nations.

Even a superficial study of the Council on Foreign Relations (probably the most prestigious private club of influence molders in our nation) will reveal from the writings of its own members this fact: Since its founding in 1921, this organization has been working to discard our U.S. Constitution and amalgamate us into a world government.

Sometime in the late '50s or early '60s, these powerful individuals began using the phrase "new world order" in their writings and speeches in reference to their long-range purpose. Since both Bush and Scowcroft have been members of the Council on Foreign Relations, I find their claim to have invented the phrase untenable.

It is very important that the average American know what Bush and his associates mean by this phrase.
