In furtherance of the insider’s attempt to divert the support of Christian conservatives away from Ron Paul, the establishment is giving big play to former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, an ordained Christian minister, with a penchant to go along with the globalist agenda. The PTB [powers that be – ed.] failed in their initial attempt to promote another phony and lack-luster conservative, former Sen. Fred Thompson. Now the establishment airways are full of “news” stories promoting Huckabee’s sudden rise in the Iowa polls. These puff pieces are worth millions in campaign dollars that Huckabee doesn’t have to spend. Notice that there has no commensurate coverage for Ron Paul’s huge success in raising money–almost $11 million this quarter so far.

Huckabee is riding the strong backing of uninformed fundamentalist Christians, who are strangely drawn to the globalist interventionists strategies out of a confused and mistaken linkage of America’s meddling in the Middle East with God’s covenant to preserve Israel as a heritage for the Jews. That’s why so many Christian reject Ron Paul’s non interventionist foreign policy. They don’t understand that God will preserve Israel for his own purposes, in his own way, and that the globalist intervention is NOT the hand of God working to preserve Israel but, in fact, a strategy to make it more vulnerable to international intervention and eventual control. And, that Israel’s own leaders are part of that globalist conspiracy (despite pretending to be right-wing).

Conservatives also don’t realize how flawed Huckabee’s record was while governor of Arkansas. Ever since the Clinton years, no one has gained high office in Arkansas without being controlled by the same establishment powers that brought us Bill Clinton. Huckabee was no exception. Phyllis Schlafly has written extensively on how much damage Huckabee did to the conservative Republicans in Arkansas during his tenure.

Pastor Chuck Baldwin, one of a handful of evangelical Christian leaders who really understands what’s happening in this nation, gives us more details on Huckabee’s flirtations with the globalists:

To find the answer as to why a professing pro-life, conservative Christian would suddenly become the darling of the media, look no further than the fact that just a couple of months ago, Mr. Huckabee appeared before the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations. (Read his speech here) And when he did, it became abundantly clear that Huckabee was a man globalists could trust.

“By the way, as you read Huckabee’s speech, you will find that he is George W. Bush on steroids! This is a man who intends to meddle in the affairs of nations around the world like you can’t believe. Talk about entangling alliances: Huckabee intends for our State, Energy, Housing, Education, Justice, Treasury, and Transportation departments to spend untold billions of tax dollars on just about anything and everything, including schools, medical facilities, roads, sewage treatment, water filtration, electricity, and legal and banking systems in countries all over the globe. And that is exactly the kind of man the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) wants in Washington.”

Huckabee reminds me very much of the naive Jimmy Carter who the globalist played for a fool as president–though Carter wasn’t an actual co-conspirator. Carter’s CFR handler was his National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was and is a globalist–despite his current pretensions as a critic of the Bush foreign policy. Baldwin’s final comment is right on target:

“But, once again, the Christian Right just doesn’t get it. So, they will continue to support establishment, CFR-backed, globalist candidates who will, in turn, continue to do the bidding of the international elite.” …
