Romney to Address Secret Combination Group – the Council for National Policy

September 26, 2007 at 3:43 pm | Posted in American politics, conservatives, corruption, Evangelicals, Mit Romney, Mitt Romney, neo-conservatives, Republicans, secret combinations | 13 Comments

Showing that indeed he’s turned to the dark side and forever given up his moderate roots, Mitt Romney will speak to the extremist secret combination group, The Council for National Policy, where Dick Cheney will speak too. Here is what this group thinks:

“The media should not know when or where we meet or who takes part in our programs, before of after a meeting,” the New York Times reported.

Hmmm, I wonder why…

What do they want?

In the summer of 1981, Woody Jenkins, a former Louisiana state lawmaker who served as the group’s first executive director, told Newsweek bluntly, “One day before the end of this century, the Council will be so influential that no president, regardless of party or philosophy, will be able to ignore us or our concerns or shut us out of the highest levels of government.”

Huh, sound familiar to y’all, my fellow Mormon readers?

The DailyKos diary I just linked to provides the most information about them, and is aptly titled Sith Lords of the Ultra-Right.

Get to know this secret combination, America. They’ve been ruling the country for twenty of the past twenty eight years.

  1. For a minute there I thought you were talking about MoveOn.org with this quote:

    β€œOne day before the end of this century, the Council will be so influential that no president, regardless of party or philosophy, will be able to ignore us or our concerns or shut us out of the highest levels of government.”

  2. oh please, Brian, like Moveon has anywhere as close to the power and influence of the CNP.

    They’re also not a secret combination. They are open to the public, for any and all to join, and do not work in secret. They try to influence the public openly, not try to influence only top leaders in secret, like the CNP.

    There’s no comparison.

    But I’m glad Moveon has succeeded with this ad to make you talk about them. πŸ™‚

  3. Daniel, so you think everything that George Soros and the MoveOn.org crowd does is done out in the open? If that is what you think, I have a bridge I can sell you.

    Membership may be open to all, but don’t kid yourself if you think everything is done openly for all to see.

  4. Of course not. No organization (including our church) does everything out in the open. But don’t kid yourself, Brian, CNP is indeed a secret combination.

    also, talking about moveon.org in a post about CNP is a red herring Brian. Please stick to the subject. Stop the Rovian tactic of changing the subject.

  5. If I could figure out a “Rovian” way to apologize for comparing MoveOn.org with CNP, I would. (I would never intentionally denigrate a solid group of people like CNP). Of course, I am a little bit fuzzy on what the term “Rovian” really means (unless it involves stealing letterhead from Alan J.Dixon and printing bogus campaign fliers promising “”free beer, free food, girls and a good time for nothing” :-))

  6. Brian,

    There is no Rovian way to apologize. See, to apologize would be to show weakness, and only soft weak liberals apologize.

    The term Rovian tactics means tactics belonging to Karl Rove, wunderkind of the Republican neo con-men. In this particular incident, the Rovian tactic states that when pressed with a point that undermines your view, you can do one of two things. Either change the subject and turn it on your political opponent, (the most commonly used example is “Bill Clinton did it too!”), or use your weakness as a strength. You chose the former. πŸ™‚

  7. Please stick to the subject. Stop the Rovian tactic of changing the subject.

    Daniel, I hate to break this to you, but you do this all the time.

  8. John,

    You know, I used to, but not as much lately. I’ve learned much debating politics these past two to three years.

  9. I don’t get this post in view of the comments you are making in support of the Council on Foreign Relations over at Conner’s blog. Is it that you agree with the agenda of the CFR but not the CNP, so you deride the CNP as a secret combination while arguing in favor of the CFR that there’s nothing wrong with groups meeting in secret and that even the Founding Fathers did that?

  10. Also, didn’t you once repudiate the journal Foreign Affairs because they published an article authored by Mitt Romney as part of a series publishing every candidate’s views on foreign policy (Giuliani and Edwards are up in the current issue)? That is confusing since it is the publication of the Council on Foreign Affairs, which you praise on Conner’s blog. But here you decry the Council for National Policy as an evil secret combination. It doesn’t make sense.

  11. john,

    But you’re coming to me with the assumption and belief that I somehow agree with you that the CFR is like the CNP, a secretive organization bent on subjugating America. I don’t see the CFR that way. I certainly see the CNP that way, for sure! It isn’t the meeting in secret that bothers me about the CNP, but that they would rather not reveal themselves or their strategies to the public. The CFR has always been quite open about its goals.

    My repudiation of the Foreign Affairs journal because they published an article by Mitt Romney was done before I considered the purpose of Foreign Affairs publishing those articles. Heck, they even let the haplessly ignorant Rudy Giuliani write an article! In thinking more about it, their move was good, and my criticism was off.

  12. DNC GOP CNP CFR TC THESE ARE ALL THE SAME PEOPLE WORKING TOGETHER TO HAVE A ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT, AND THEIR AGENDA IS OPENERS BORDERS BETWEEN CANADA, AMERICAN AND MEXICO. AND FORMATION OF THE NORTH AMERICAN UNION. WE HAVE NO MORE GOVERNMENT BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE, THOSE DAYS ARE LONG GONE,AND MOST LIKELY WILL NEVER BE SEE AGAIN. SO WE CAN TALK IT TO DEATH, BUT THERE IS NO SENSE BEATING A DEAD HORSE. AND THIS WAS ALL DONE BY MASS MEDIA DECEPTION. ALL I CAN SAY BETTER GO TO NIGHT SCHOOL, WAIT FORGET THAT GO TO DAY SCHOOL BECAUSE YOU WON’T HAVE A JOB ANYWAY AN LEARN SPANISH.

  13. wow, Ron Paul supporters really are shrill. To them everybody is evil except Ron Paul supporters. And they use caps A LOT. What’s up with that?

    And what’s wrong with learning Spanish?
