Thompson tease twists Tennessee talkers
Conservative radio hosts are stuck with

Two of my WND columns about Fred Thompson have struck some nerves. On the one hand, the information is unassailable. On the other hand, the information is unpopular. Nobody wants to admit that they’ve been hoodwinked.
That seems especially true for Republicans — particularly those that don’t actually pay attention to political details. (That would include a lot more high-profile people than one might realize.)Three popular talk-radio hosts in Nashville have “hitched their wagon” to Fred Thompson — even though he is not yet a candidate for president. The report that he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations has caused some back-pedaling by at least one of those hosts. For two weeks, he distanced himself from Thompson, saying on-air that “if the reports about Thompson are true, then I couldn’t vote for him.” In recent days, however, the shift is in the other direction, with the host asking, “What’s so bad about NAFTA?” It seems that Thompson has the talkers twisting to cover for him.In the early 1960s, globalist Nelson Rockefeller praised the European Common Market as an example of incrementalism that would eventually lead to a European government. It took thirty more years for the European Union to come out of the closet. NAFTA is modeled after the European Common Market, and has been around for a dozen years. Democratic President Bill Clinton (CFR member) heavily promoted NAFTA in 1993-1994, and Republican Senator Fred Thompson (CFR member) voted to expand NAFTA in 1998. NAFTA has paved the way for open borders on the North American continent, just as the Common Marked did on the European continent. Incrementalism is to globalism as leather is to shoemaking.But, some folks still cling to the myth that “Uncle Fred” is just a good-ole-boy that got suckered in by those fast-talking Yankee lobbyists. To believe that, one must ignore the fact that Thompson was a Washington lobbyist for almost 20 years before his Senate run. One of his clients was General Electric. They purchased the NBC television network. You know, the network that airs the series Law and Order … starring Fred Thompson. That series was sued by The Minutemen regarding a smear episode. You know, the episode that did not cause Thompson to quit the series.
Voters need to look at the facts, and not be hoodwinked by a country-boy image, or the fictional roles that an actor portrays, or the hidden support of an ‘un-named’ Christian leader. (Was it CFR member Richard Land?) The fact is that Fred Thompson’s globalist pedigree is unquestionable. The fact is that, no matter how much we may like “Uncle Fred,” he is the wrong man for the White House. (Except, of course, in the movies.) The fact is that, even if we agree with our favorite talk-radio hosts on 99 percent of topics, we can’t follow them down the twisting trail into Thompson’s globalist quicksand.
