Mitt Romney’s Leftist, Globalist Advisor Team

April 13, 2012, 7:49 pm By

We refer to the fine article in New American, by Bob Adelman, “Romney’s Advisors Are Leftist Elites,” 10/10/2011, for contextual information. Below is the list he provided of Romney’s team, with comments.

Gulag Bound has provided fact after fact, after analysis, after warning, after plea. This list alone, should cause the reader to take to the streets, to oppose Mitt Romney.

Let us oppose him, not just actively, but like our children’s lives depend on it – in a way that makes a difference and prevents him from achieving the Republican nomination for the United States Presidency at a time when we so need a champion of U.S. and popular sovereignty, instead.

May it be so, Father God in Heaven.

General Michael Hayden — former director of the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency. He was director of NSA during its warrantless surveillance efforts to spy on American citizens. [CFR]*

Michael Chertoff — former head of the Homeland Security Department who now runs a security consulting agency that employs Michael Hayden.

Cofer Black — former director of the CIA’s Counterterrorist Center during George W. Bush’s first term. He now chairs an intelligence gathering agency Total Intelligence Solutions, a subsidiary of Blackwater Worldwide.

Paula Dobriansky — former Under Secretary in the State Department, and graduate of Harvard University where she serves as a Senior Fellow at the Kennedy School of Government. [CFR]*

Robert Joseph — former Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security and now a senior scholar at the National Institute for Public Policy.

Christopher Burnham — former Under Secretary-General of the United Nations under Kofi Annan and then Under Secretary of State under Condoleezza Rice. He holds degrees from Harvard University and Georgetown University. [CFR]*

Eliot Cohen — holds two degrees from Harvard and served as Counselor to the State Department under Condoleezza Rice. [CFR]*

Kim Holmes — holds two degrees from Georgetown University and served as Assistant Secretary of State under Colin Powell, responsible for directing the activities of 400 diplomats working closely with the United Nations. [CFR]*

Mitchell Reiss served as Director of Policy Planning at the State Department under Colin Powell. He received degrees from Williams College, Tufts University, Columbia University, and Oxford University. He worked at the National Security Council under the direction of Brent Scowcroft and Colin Powell. He served on the National Security Council, the Council on Foreign Relations and the Ford Foundation. [CFR]*

Eric Edelman — has degrees from Cornell University and Yale University. Former Under Secretary of Defense under George W. Bush.

Dov Zakheim — foreign policy advisor to George W. Bush under Condoleezza Rice and consultant to the Secretary of Defense. Received degrees from Columbia University and Oxford University. [CFR]*

Richard Williamson — received degrees from Princeton University and the University of Virginia, and served as ambassador to the United Nations under George W. Bush. [CFR]*

Kerry Healey — a graduate of Harvard, and Romney’s Lieutenant Governor for four years. She is married to Sean Healey, a multimillionaire. [CFR]*

John Lehman — served as Secretary of the Navy under President Ronald Reagan and was a member of the 9/11 Commission. Known for his quote: “Power corrupts. Absolute power is kind of neat.” [CFR]*

Dan Senor — holds a master’s degree from Harvard, and is an Adjunct Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. He accompanied George W. Bush to Jerusalem to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the State of Israel.

Robert Kagan — holds a PhD from Yale University where he was inducted into the secretive Skull and Bones group. He worked at the State Department as a speechwriter for George Shultz and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (see footnote below). He was named by the CFR’s Foreign Policy journal as one of the world’s “Top 100 Public Intellectuals.” [CFR]*

Walid Phares — born in Beirut, he has testified before committees of the State, Justice, Defense, and Homeland Security Departments, the European Parliament, and the United Nations Security Council.

Norm Coleman — Minnesota Senator from 2003 to 2009, he lost his seat to Al Franken in a contested election. He was a member of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL), but switched to the Republican Party in 1996. He is a strong supporter of the war in Iraq and the War on Terror.

Jim Talent — may be the only Romney advisor with any kind of conservative credentials, serving as a distinguished fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

Nile Gardiner — a British conservative commentator who works at the Heritage Foundation. He was a former aide to British PM Margaret Thatcher. He is a graduate of Yale University, and was an adviser to Rudy Giuliani’s 2008 presidential campaign.

For something very related, I implore the Gulag visitor to see and pay sound attention to Gingrich, Paul, Romney & Santorum on Agenda 21 vs. U.S. Sovereignty,” before it becomes too late.

By contrast, one of many videos showing the commitment to United States Sovereignty (and to Popular Sovereignty, the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the principles expressed in the Federalist Papers) of Newt Gingrich. Scroll to 3:50 for the direct question and answer on U.S. sovereignty, if you don’t want to hear the prior, important remarks:

Newt Gingrich- Duncan, SC 01-14-2012

If I already didn't decide to NEVER vote for that leftist hack Romney, THAT statement alone would prevent me from pulling the handle for him!

Greg Mankiw is an economics advisor:

How stupid. Voting for Gingrich in the primaries that are left will deny Obamney the nomination.

Yup. Romney is a disaster. At least Gingrich loves the Founders and the Republic.

The reasons not to vote Romney or even consider voting for Mittens is piled high to the stratosphere.

It's interesting how many of those reasons mirror reasons not to vote for Democrats...

Which is another good question, why isn’t Mitt running as a Democrat?

“Which is another good question, why isn’t Mitt running as a Democrat?”

Because Soros could only keep one Obama in office at a time.

That's actually a really good question - he certainly would have been able to win more than one election before now, and he wouldn't have had to tuck his tail between his legs and run away in 2006. Rich, nice-looking family, good radio presence, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, pro-gun control, hell he would have given Obama a run for his money in 2008.

Before I get attacked on FR, obama’s advisors are a “murderer’s row” of anti-America commie bastards. Romney’s advisors pale in comparison to the damage the obama regime has caused us in the past 4 years.

Mitty’s team has at least 2 conservatives from the Heritage Foundation. Compared to obama’s advisors, these guys don’t concern me.

Newt has a lot of issues, but he’s acceptable. Mitt Romney is not acceptable under any circumstances.
