"The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an American nonprofit nonpartisan membership organization, publisher, and think tank specializing in U.S. foreign policy and international affairs from an interventionist perspective. Founded in 1921 and headquartered at 58 East 68th Street in New York City, with an additional office in Washington, D.C., the CFR is considered to be the nation's 'most influential foreign-policy think tank.' [1] It publishes a bi-monthly journal Foreign Affairs."

what?

i actually agree with a lot of stuff that CFR puts out, and the natural progression of humanity will indeed end up be some form of the one-world state, but just because i point out their bias/agenda doesn't tar me as a insular person.

learn to contribute a bit more useful next time instead of just spewing stereotypes. Thanks.

I thought their characterization of the Tea Party was actually pretty interesting:

As the Tea Party label became better known, all kinds of people sought to hitch their wagons to this rising star. Affluent suburban libertarians, rural fundamentalists, ambitious pundits, unreconstructed racists, and fiscally conservative housewives all can and do claim to be Tea Party supporters.

The article then goes on to identify Bush's foreign policy as generally Jacksonian (kind of an us vs them type of mindset), while contrasting it to Obama's, which they label as Wilsonian (in terms of consensus building against a common threat of terror). In summarizing their conclusion, the concern with the Tea Party seems to focus on questioning whether they will be willing to make accurate assessments of foreign opportunities and challenges, or be more aligned with preset philosophies.

Didn't seem like a big deal in the article to me, rather it just seemed to be contemplating if this might be a problem at some future time.

By the way, the link in the original posting was really a pile of junk. The actual article published by the CFR is titled The Tea Party and American Foreign Policy, and was intended to be an exploration of what populism may mean for globalism.

I sure as hell believe they would find the Tea Party obstructive considering Rockefeller's group here wants to fund with USA money all kind of things around the world and people like the Tea Party believe you need to balance our budget and quit spending all our money.

Tea Party therefore is contrary to the money CFR wants to take from the USA to elsewhere.

Always follow the money.

Last paragraph makes a solid point :
Quote:
It is clear then that, even in its infancy, the Tea Party has already begun to disrupt and delay the plans the insiders have for submerging the American republic into a new world order. As the Tea Party movement grows, the problems that creates for CFR insiders should continue to mount — but only if the Tea Party Movement moves in the direction of the noninterventionist foreign policy advocated by Ron Paul as opposed to the interventionist foreign policy advocated by Sarah Palin.
IMO, I disagree with the writer and think Palin is part of the CFR and is a useful puppet. Who was one of the first people that the McCain camp introduced to her? None other then Kessinger,who by the way contributed to the Mead article. She has met with old Henry a couple of times since. The author points out how the movement beat back climate change legislation, lets not forget that the McCain/Palin ticket supported cap and trade. Who side were they on?
Mead has it right :
Quote:
Restating the obvious, Mead allows that if the “Palinites” succeed in controlling the direction of the Tea Party on international affairs, then their march to their liberal world order should continue without difficulty.
The Palin neo con wing is the Trojan horse to the movement and Mead/Kessinger can sleep well at night knowing that they are unfortunately winning.
