Romney's Consistent Message on Iran

As an example of Mitt Romney's consistency on an issue, his campaign is airing a new radio ad demonstrating his continuing opposition to visits by Iranian leaders to the United States.

The campaign reminds us that then-Gov. Romney opposed a 2006 visit by former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami to Harvard University, even denying him a state police escort.

Last week, Romney was the first presidential candidate to publicly oppose a proposed visit by current Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's to Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan. He's now also asking the United Nations and Columbia University to withdraw speaking invitations to the Iranian leader.

The 60-second radio ad is called "Khatami," and is airing in Iowa, South Carolina, and eventually Florida.

"The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is the American Branch of a society which originated in England and believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established." -Carroll Quigley, member of CFR, mentor to Bill Clinton

"The main purpose of the Council on Foreign Relation is promoting the disarmament of U.S. sovereignty and national independence and submergence into an all powerful, one world government." "...the very substantial research facilities of the CFR are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy..." "...and to confound and discredit, intellectually and politically, any opposition." -Admiral Chester Ward, former CFR member and Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Navy

Who is a CFR / NAU member?

Which Presidential Candidates are for One-World Government?

Republican Fred Thompson

Republican Rudy Giuliani

Republican Mitt Romney

Republican John McCain

Republican Jim Gilmore

Republican Newt Gingrich

Democrat Hilary Clinton

Democrat Barack Obama

Democrat John Edwards

Democrat Joe Biden

Democrat Chris Dodd

Democrat Bill Richardson

Is there any difference between Republican and Democrat when they have the same goal?

Go to www.cfr.org (Council of Foreign Relations Website). Do a search for: Sovereignty and Globalisation. Take a look at CFR President Richard N. Haass' article "Sovereignty and Globalisation. Check the membership and involvement of all the candidates. See For Yourself!

So called free trade deals and world governmental organizations are a threat to our independence as a nation.

We MUST withdraw from any organization and trade deal that infringes upon the Freedom and Independence of the United States of America!

It's not politics as usual. Research and Vote Wisely. Too Much Is At Stake....

They are all traitors! Have you seen this?
Why are these people still in office?

Actually, you are incorrect. Mitt Romney is not a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He has members on his staff, but he is not a member himself. If you're going to rant, at least have the decency to present truth and not just what suits your purposes.

I can't find evidence anywhere that Mitt Romney is a member of the CFR. Don't get me wrong, I am an avid supporter of Ron Paul but I'd like to have actual proof that Mitt Romney is a member of the CFR before I tell others about it. I've found a bio under presidential candidates for Mitt Romney but I've also found the same for Ron Paul. As far as I can tell, they're only reporting the different candidates, it doesn't say who's a member of the CFR.

Mitt must be really proud of himself. Finally something he can look back and say he hasn't flopped on. But match that up to the doctor's consistency and there is a pale contrast.

Another big drug maker, Pfizer, for example, was harshly criticized in 2001 for reporting that its painkiller Celebrex caused fewer ulcers than older drugs after six months of use. Pfizer’s study had originally been designed — but failed — to show that Celebrex caused fewer ulcers after a full year of use. Yesterday, Merck and Schering said they did not yet know the results of the trial. They said they were changing the endpoint only because they want to be able to analyze the data more quickly. A panel of outside scientists recommended the change last Friday, said Lee Davies, a spokesman for Schering. Mr. Davies declined to disclose the members of the panel. Dr. Howard Weintraub, the clinical director of the New York University center for the prevention of cardiovascular disease, said cardiologists were especially concerned about the trial’s results because Zetia works...

Add UV radiation from the sun, and the magnitude of sorting out what is truly carcinogenic becomes evident. Aging is a major cause of cancer, associated not just with chemicals, but a normal process called telomere shortening. So, except for high exposure workers, it is completely unfounded to claim that there exists a chemically driven cancer epidemic. Accusing cancer researchers of choosing not to address prevention shows a lack of understanding of the biology of cancer. To infer that the interest in therapeutics derives from the fact that cancer treatment has somehow become an industry is to be misinformed. Despite ads suggesting that drug companies...

For this is where candidates Wanda Adams and Lawrence Allen Jr. have their storefront campaign headquarters, 12 blocks apart. The area also is where both candidates have worked on some of Houston's grittier problems, earning their credentials as grass roots public servants. Cullen, its empty storefronts and busted sidewalks intertwined with signs of redevelopment and neighborhood pride, symbolizes a district full of need and promise. Adams, on leave as a coordinator of the city's Go Green Initiative for recycling and other environmental programs, has the support of the district's outgoing councilwoman, Ada Edwards. At least three other council members are in Adams' corner, along with former Mayor Lee...

For those seeking Mitt Romney's membership in the CFR all you have to do is look at the CFR website:
Romney's father was in the Nixon cabinent & as far as I remember, only CFR members have gotten a cabinent post in the last 50 years, (plus a search on their website gets you 321 views.)
Which includes the following statements:
...He elaborates in a summer 2007 Foreign Affairs article, saying he would like to create a "Partnership for Prosperity and Progress" aimed at supporting moderate Muslims in economic, health, rule of law and other areas to help them "defeat radical and violent Islam." (FA is the CFR in house publication)
"...Romney says the United States should implement an "enforceable employer verification system" using biometrically-enabled identification cards (PDF) for non-citizens. On the Bill O'Reilly Show in 2006, Romney said, "you have to have a tamper-proof document to make sure that people who are here [and] are aliens are identified and registered, and people cannot hire them unless they're here legally."
