 promised hundreds of supporters at a fund-raiser barbecue Saturday that he will bring the ``New World Order'' crashing down if elected president on the Reform Party ticket in November.

As people cheered ``Go, Pat, go,'' Buchanan hit his key themes of protecting the U.S.-Mexican border from illegal immigrants and of fighting trade policies that threaten the country's sovereignty.

If elected, he said, he would move U.S. troops from Bosnia and Kosovo to the southern borders of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico New Mexico, state in the SW United States. At its northwestern corner are the so-called Four Corners, where Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah meet at right angles; New Mexico is also bordered by Oklahoma (NE), Texas (E, S), and Mexico (S).  and California.

``The government of the United States United States, officially United States of America, republic (2005 est. pop. 295,734,000), 3,539,227 sq mi (9,166,598 sq km), North America. The United States is the world's third largest country in population and the fourth largest country in area.  and Bill Clinton don't have the courage to defend the borders of the United States The United States shares international borders with two nations:
  • The United States–Mexico border to the south
  • The Canada–United States border to the north
 of America,'' said Buchanan, 61, who is making his third run for the White House.

The former adviser to presidents Nixon and Ford complained the Clinton administration has been overly trusting toward other countries such as China. He said both Al Gore and George W. Bush are sellouts conspiring to block him from the debates.

Protesters from the Libertarian Party The Libertarian party was founded in Colorado in 1971 and held its first convention in Denver in 1972. In 1972 it fielded John Hospers for president and Theodora Nathan for vice president in the U.S. general election.  and the Jewish Defense League The Jewish Defense League (JDL) is a militant Jewish organization whose stated goal is to protect Jews from anti-Semitism.[1] Founded by Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York City in 1968, its self-described purpose was to protect Hasidic Jews from harassment in Brooklyn, and to  picketed in front of the large estate on Foothill Boulevard where the barbecue was taking place. They derided Buchanan as an anti-Semite and vicious demagogue dem·a·gogue also dem·a·gog

``We find him to be a Jew-hater par excellence,'' said JDL n. 1. Jewish Defense League.  International Chairman Irv Rubin. ``Anyone who supports this man should be ashamed of himself.''

Mark Selzer, chairman of the Central Los Angeles Libertarian Party, said the Reform Party was founded by people with Libertarian views, and Buchanan is taking things in the wrong direction.

Buchanan, an outspoken opponent of abortion, has said he will appoint only anti-abortion judges to stop the country's ``Culture of Death.''

, said Buchanan is not an anti-Semite.

Another speaker, state Sen. Richard Mountjoy, R-Arcadia, helped introduce Buchanan but offstage declined to say whether he would vote for him.

``I think Pat Buchanan is a great American. He needs to be in the debates,'' Mountjoy said offstage. ``If that doesn't happen, the American people will be shortchanged - regardless of whether they're for Buchanan or against him.''

Among those who paid $25 to attend the fund-raiser was Bill Jones, 50. The Simi Valley resident said arguments about the philosophy of the Reform Party are irrelevant because candidates have treated it like a shell corporation since Ross Perot created and abandoned it eight years ago.

Sarkis Antonian, 44, of Monterey Park added his opinion of the candidate: ``(Buchanan) wants to clean up the mess in the United States. The other two parties keep going against the people.''

Buchanan is expected to easily win the party's nominating convention in Long Beach this summer. A recent federal district court ruling gave control of the Reform Party to the faction supporting his presidential bid and reaffirmed the selection of Pat Choate as party chairman.

Until February, Choate, a Buchanan friend, co-chaired Buchanan's presidential campaign.
