Will the Council for National Policy Support President Bush and the Surge?
A powerful, secretive, right-wing group, the Council for National Policy (CNP), strongly supports President Bush in the Global War on Terrorism. As these photos document, the CNP is also educating young conservatives on political power and the workings of government. Note the CNP logo in the second photo.
Meet James Hill (above, left) and Archer Martin (above, right). We understand Mr. Martin just graduated from medical school and is to do his residency at Yale. As is the case with Mitt Romney's son Ben, currently in medical school, our military definitely needs doctors - all the time. In fact, for those who lack independent means of financing their medical education and training, the military is a great deal: A certain number of years of service and they pay for everything. [That's how we know The Pentagon is serious.]
Meet James Waller (above, center, and below, near right), a senior at Northeastern University. We'll have more on him later.
Who is the young man in blue on the right, above?
Meet Jared Gamble (above, left). He's been active in the evangelical side of the conservative movement and was a TeenPact intern in 2005 (scroll down). Meet Jonathan Krive (above, center). According to his blog, Critical Mass, he strongly supports the Iraq War. Why don't you join us in encouraging him, via a comment, to Be A Man! Enlist!?
Meet Tom Dodd (above, right). He's pictured with former Congressman Steve Stockman (above, center). He's now the Washington Director for TheVanguard.org.
Dodd is not the only one also associated with TheVanguard.org - itself a big supporter of the Iraq War. Here's their blog on Iraq. Of course, nowhere on their site do they encourage all their healthy, heterosexual young male supporters to Be A Man! Enlist!, much less encourage everyone else to urge their eligible relatives and friends, their circles of influence, to volunteer for military service.
Why this is, or should be, important to President Bush
It appears that neither of these organizations has encouraged all of its healthy, heterosexual young male supporters to Be A Man! Enlist!, much less urge everyone else to encourage their own eligible relatives and friends, their circles of influence, to volunteer for military service. According to the Washington Post, these "influencers" are essential to America's military readiness:
Particularly troubling to the Army is the declining perceptions of the "influencers" -- such as parents, coaches and teachers -- who are increasingly discouraging young people from joining the military as a career. [OYE Comment: Our military is neither designed nor intended for everyone to stay in for a full career. End OYE Comment.] [U.S. Army Recruiting Command's Commander, Major General Thomas] Bostick said the willingness of mothers to send their children to the Army has dropped from 40 percent in March 2004 to 25 percent now, according to Army data, while the willingness of fathers has dropped from 50 percent to 33 percent over the same period.
The Army continues to try to reach influencers while also making aggressive efforts to reach out to young people directly. Bostick said he considers the Army not just an all-volunteer Army but nearly an all-recruited Army.
"Not many folks are just walking into the recruiting station saying this is what they want to do," Bostick said. Later, he added: "This is not just a challenge for the Army; it's a challenge for the nation."
We cannot help but conclude that the Culture for National Policy and TheVanguard.org really don't want President Bush, Ambassador Ryan Crocker and General David Petraeus to succeed in Iraq, or elsewhere in the Global War on Terrorism, after all.
Please join us in asking them to Support Our President. In addition to the Facebook profiles [and Jonathan Krive's blog], please click here: Council for National Policy. TheVanguard.org.
Thank you for helping Support President Bush!
