Is Gary Johnson one of us or a CFR Pawn?

Gary Johnson, the former republican Governor of New Mexico is being cited more and more as a possible candidate for President in 2012. Many of those who continue to promote Johnson are current or former supporters of Ron Paul.

I do not dislike Governor Johnson. I have met him. He is one heck of a nice guy. However, I do have serious questions about him that would prevent me from ever voting for him for president. The first is that he has always considered himself to be pro-choice. It continues to boggle my mind in this day and age, with all of our advanced technology, that everyone does not agree that unborn children deserve protection from abortion. Take one look at a 3D or 4D ultrasound and then come and talk to me about choice. That Gary says he is for liberty and freedom and still supports the right of a mother to kill her unborn offspring is very troublesome.

However, even more concerning than that is Governor Johnson's strong ties to the Council on Foreign Relations or CFR. His ties cannot be denied or ignored.

Doug Turner was Gary's general consultant, state director, and Campaign Manager for both his 1994 and 1998 election. Doug Turner is a member of the CFR and is listed as such on their website. He is currently listed on the "Leadership and Staff" page. This is Gary Johnson's closest adviser. Its reasonable to assume he would be in the same capacity during a Johnson for President campaign. That is just a little too close for my comfort. At the very least Gary Johnson is under the influence of the CFR.

Genuine Conservatives do not dance with the CFR and so until further notice I continue to have serious questions about Governor Gary Johnson as he prepares his likely bid for President of the United States.

Here is the link to Turner's bio on the CFR website. See for yourself.

  1. Turner WAS Gary Johnson's closest advisor in 94 and 98 but wasn't when Turner was associated with the CFR 7 years later for two years in 2005-2006. Get your facts straight:
