Mexican Trucks and Dobson on Thompson
One News Now, the News site operated by the American Family Association, has two stories of note today. One, President Bush's plan to allow Mexican truckers to operate freely in the United States (already in effect as the scheme was rushed through before Congress could fully react) received a set-back yesterday when the Senate voted to defund the program by a large margin. A virtually identical measure has already passed in the House, also by veto-proof margins. The story from Chad Groening is here. The vote represents a setback to the President's increasingly obvious efforts to integrate the economies of Canada, Mexico, and the United States into a "North American Union" in part through the extra-governmental "Security and Prosperity Partnership".
In another article from One News Now, globalist forces got another setback when it was revealed that the influential founder of Focus on the Family, Dr. James Dobson, has ruled out backing CFR member Fred Thompson in his race for the Republican Presidential nomination. The Council on Foreign relations (CFR) is a hyper-influential think-tank which has long pushed for greater integration of the United States into a global economy and government. Other Republican candidates who are members of the CFR include Rudy Guiliani, John McCain, and Mitt Romney. Top Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama are also members. This consistency demonstrates that no matter which side the American people "choose", the choice on some issues has already been made for them. The ONN story from Eric Gorski is here.
