Fred Thompson to head to New Hampshire

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Television star and former Sen. Fred Thompson will make his first trip to New Hampshire as a potential presidential candidate later this month, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader.

The Tennessee Republican started to "test the waters" for his campaign by beginning to raise money and hire staff about a week ago. He is expected to make an official presidential announcement as early as July.

Republican State Senate Minority Leader Ted Gatsas, A high ranking New Hampshire official, told the Union Leader Friday that Thompson agreed to show up to a fundraiser to benefit the Senate Republican PAC on June 28. General tickets cost $50, and supporters can pay $500 for a private reception with Thompson. The fundraiser will take place in Bedford, New Hampshire.

    Fred Thompson is a member of the CFR, which is the force behind the push for the North American Union and the new currency – the Amero. If you want to completely give up national sovereignty, vote for Fred Thompson.

    "We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years."

    "It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries."

    I certainly would not vote for a politician just because I saw him play a minor role in a Tom Clancy Movie.
