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.

So far Dr. Dobson has publicly ruled out McCain, Guiliani, & now Thompson.
I think he is unlikely to do the same with Romney for fear it would look like he is calling him a liar.
I only hope he doesn't fall for Romney's "change of heart" & endorse him, when his own timeline for his epiphany does not match his statements during & after the change supposedly occurred. His rhetoric didn't actually change until he decided he wanted to run for president.

Romney is running the best campaign. He scares me but at least he has a sterling personal life, which is more than you can say for many of the rest of them.

The flip-flops and CFR membership alone rule out the "life-long hunter" Romney. I don't need to go to what his church believes. While in theory, I could vote for a Mormon, he was not just a Mormon, but a high official in the Mormon Church.

Anyone who calls themself a conservative & supports Fred Thompson is either confused on the definition of conservative or hasn't done enough research on him to make an informed decision.
Despite his rhetoric & positioning he has a long history of "moderate"/liberal positions & votes. He also has many ties to questionable groups & people.

Dick Morris summed a lot of it up in his latest column. Here's a link:,2933,296882,00.html

The fellow is mistaken about where I am on the political spectrum, which is OK because I am not running for anything. The problem is, he does not know where his chosen candidate is on that spectrum either! He just thinks that he does! Perhaps he thinks he is electing "Arthur Branch".

I think that problem will resolve itself as more info comes out & he continues to prove what a dud he is on the stump. I predict that it will not take long for the Fred Flare to burn itself out.

I agree with you. I have yet to see what all the fuss is about Fred. This race will come down to Rudy vs. Romney. Romney will take Iowa and N.H. The question is can he get enough momentum to carry into S.C. & Florida. I don't think so. I believe both will go to Rudy. This will be a close and very interesting race. Also, I still think Rudy is the only man in the race that can beat Hillary.
