3. Council on American-Islamic Relations - Disinfopedia
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy Council on American-Islamic Relations From Disinfopedia The Council on American-Islamic Relations (
) (CAIR) is a "non-profit, grassroots membership organization" headquartered in Washington, D.C. + with "CAIR chapters across America (/asp/chapters.asp)." Table of contents 1 About 2 Leadership 3 Contact 4 Other Related Disinfopedia Resources [edit] About According to the CAIR web site (/asp/aboutcair.asp) CAIR states that it is "dedicated to presenting an Islamic perspective on issues of importance to the American public. In Offering that perspective, we seek to empower the Muslim community in America through political and social activism."[2] (/asp/aboutcair.asp) CAIR accomplishes its mission through:[3] () Nihad Awad, Executive Director (December 17, 1998)[5] () Ibrahim Hooper, Communications Director (September 26, 2001)[9] () Siraj Wahhaj, Advisory Board Member (September 25, 2002)[11] () [edit] Contact 453 New Jersey Ave SE Washington, DC 20003-4034 Tel. 202.488.8787 Fax. 202.488.0833 Email. cair@cair-net.org The following was exerpted from "How CAIR Put My Life in Peril (http://www.meforum.org/article/108/)" by Khalid Durán published April 4, 2001, in the Middle East Quarterly by the Middle East Forum. An Islamist Front "CAIR is the principle front organization of a coalition of Islamist (or fundamentalist Muslim) groups that have taken root in America over the past two decades. Most are spin-offs of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), such as the American Muslims for Jerusalem, the Holy Land Foundation + the Islamic Institute. These are extreme groups + some have even come under federal investigation for alleged support of Middle Eastern terrorism. But CAIR's mission has differed from the others: its special assignment is the insinuation of the Islamist agenda into mainstream American politics. Like the many front organizations established by the Soviet Union in its heyday, CAIR works to give a white bread image to advocates of illiberal and even radical ideas. "CAIR is run by a duo. The executive director, Nihad Awad, is a Palestinian; his associate, Ibrahim ("Dougie") Hooper, is an American convert. Awad actively propagates the cause in Arabic, while Hooper handles most of the English-language work. To create the perception that CAIR speaks for Islam in America, the two indefatigably issue position statements on anything remotely touching on Muslim or Arab affairs, reacting on everything from U.S. foreign policy to letters in college newspapers. "In fact, no one organization speaks for Islam in America + no Islamist group ever will. Scarcely 10 percent of American Muslims can be classified as Islamists--the extremist fringe of contemporary Islam. An additional 5 percent are sympathizers + another 5 percent agree with Islamists on certain issues. Assuming a Muslim population of up to five million,6 CAIR's total potential constituency cannot exceed one million + its actual supporters are probably only small a fraction of that number. The overwhelming majority of American Muslims have no Islamist sympathies + most have never even heard of CAIR. "Indeed, a very large proportion of Muslims in the United States are refugees from Islamist regimes, of the kind for which CAIR serves as an apologist. This applies to the majority of the perhaps million Iranians in the United States, as well as the majority of Sudanese in the country. Many Pakistanis came to the United States as refugees from the Islamist dictatorship of General Zia. Recently they have been joined by Afghans fleeing the tyranny of the Taliban. The agenda put forward by CAIR is anathema to this large majority. "Unfortunately, it has not always been easy for non-Muslim Americans to determine who speaks for whom in the Muslim community. CAIR and its fellow extremist organizations have had surprising success in being accepted at the highest levels of the U.S. government. The picture of Awad and Hooper in the company of then-Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright at a festive Ramadan dinner in the State Department's elegant diplomatic rooms (at which, to top things off, she urged them to find recruits to apply for government jobs)7 gave rise to consternation among many American Muslims. It also aroused suspicions, with some suggesting that CAIR is valued at Foggy Bottom as a back channel to Islamists in the Middle East and others concluding that the State Department is simply ignorant. In either case, there is legitimate cause for alarm. "Fortunately, some major American institutions are waking up to the real nature of CAIR. Partly as a result of the fallout from my book, the American Jewish Committee has refused to participate in any activities of which CAIR is part, followed by the American Jewish Congress and the Anti-Defamation League. These organizations are both appalled by CAIR's extremism and aware of its small constituency. There are other signs that CAIR's extremism is becoming an issue. For example, Salon.com8 and The Hill,9 two publications hitherto completely uninterested in CAIR, published powerful and widely-noted exposיs. Other media (such as The Boston Globe10 and The Weekly Standard11) noted the organization's extremism. "CAIR has attempted to build a wider following by 'defending' Islam and Muslims against perceived acts of misrepresentation, defamation + discrimination. American Muslims are rightly sensitive to manifestations of prejudice + have every right to protest them. But CAIR goes further: it denounces offenses against Islam where there are none + it demonizes moderate Muslims who criticize Islamist distortions." Footnotes: 6 Alexander Rose, "How Did Muslims Vote in 2000?", Middle East Quarterly, Summer 2001, pp. 13-14. 7 "I ask your help in urging young people in your communities to think seriously about becoming part of America's foreign policy team."

Instead, CAIR's modus operandi has been to attack Christianity with the same, simplistic broad brush it claims is tarring Islam." 9 April 2003 (): "Contradict .."

Mont Pelerin Society, > [ was formed at Mont Pelerin in Switzerland 00.000.1947, at a meeting of some of the leading families of the ancient European oligarchy, chaired by the economist, Friedrich von Hayek. Mont Pelerin's main thinktank is the London-based Institute for Economic Affairs (IEA). From there it expanded worldwide creating thinktanks. Ludwig von Mises, is a CNP/reconstructionist connected libertarian institute which esteems notables such as Friedrich von Hayek. Friedrich von Hayek, protégé and colleague of Mises, is one of the founders of the Mont Pelerin Society.  The Mont Pelerin Society was founded 00.000.1947 at a meeting in Switzerland, in a chalet on the slopes of Mt. Pelerin. According to various sources, among its founders were some of the oldest and most powerful families in Europe, such as the von Hapsburgs, former rulers of Austro-Hungarian Empire + the Thurn und Taxis family, which ran the intelligence and postal system for that Empire since the Sixteenth Century...those present such as Max von Thurn und Taxis, had supported Hitler during the 1920s and 1930s. The Mont Pelerin Society called for a "conservative revolution" - for the "elimination" of nation states and the return to FEUDALISM a goal which has characterised all the various European fascist movements of the 1920s and 1930s, of which the Nazis were merely the most successful variant...The Mont Pelerin Society is a relic of the fascist movements of Europe in the 1920s and 1930s. The Mont Pelerin Society's own members such as Professor Milton Friedman, have "emphasized" that its policies are those of Adolf Hitler 43 [meaning from Hitler's policies in the 1920's and 1930's]. Soon after it was founded 00.000.1947, the Mont Pelerin Society moved to London... Beginning in the mid-1970s, with lavish corporate financing, the Mont Pelerin Society, spawned a series of "think tanks" 43. Von Hayek, the founder, wrote The Road to Serfdom in London 00.000.1944, while teaching at the British Fabian Society's London School of Economics. "...in London Friedrich Hayek was creating an organization that would later re-form as the Mont Pelerin Society. The early group was formed 00.000.1939 and was known as the Society for the Renovation of Liberalism. Members of the organization included Frank Knight and Henry Simons of the University of Chicago, the slavishly pro-British American Fabian Socialist Walter Lippman, the philosopher Sir Karl Popper, Sir John Clapham of the Bank of England + of course, Ludwig von Mises. [a founding member and for at least 13 years] All of these early members of Hayek's group then met at Mont Pelerin, Switzerland to form the influential, highly-secretive + elitist Mont Pelerin Society 00.000.1947...From the beginning the Mont Pelerin Society worked hand-in-hand with the Pan European Union..." 43b  See: Footnotes  ].~ Dr. Larry P.

Table of contents 1 Norquist the conservative activist 2 Biography 3 Positions held 4 Grover Norquist the lobbyist 5 Other Related Disinfopedia Resources 6 External Links (undated) 7 Other External Links (organized by date) [edit]Norquist the conservative activist He is one of the "Gang of Five" in Nina Easton's 2000 book by that name, giving the history of leaders of the modern conservative movement. He has been described as "a thumb-in-the-eye radical rightist" (The Nation) + "Tom Paine crossed with Lee Atwater plus just a soupcon of Madame Defarge" (P.J. O'Rourke). Norquist is famous for his widely quoted comment that he wants to shrink government "down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub." Norquist largely rejects relativism and is comfortable assigning the labels of "good" and "bad". The pledge of "no new taxes" that so many Republican legislators signed was his project. He holds regular meetings for conservative leaders in which strategy is discussed. He once commented, "We play for keeps; they play for lunch." "Adept at media appearances, Norquist writes a monthly politics column for the American Spectator magazine + frequently speaks at regional and state think tanks of the movement. He is also well connected with large scale U.S. business interests, having served as economist and chief speech writer for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (1983-1984)." Shortly after Bill Clinton was elected president of the United States 00.000.1992, Norquist began hosting a weekly get-together of conservatives in his Washington office to coordinate activities and strategy. "We were sort of like the Mensheviks after the Russian Revolution," recalls Marshall Wittmann, who attended the first meeting as a representative of the Christian Coalition. The "Wednesday Meeting" of Norquist's Leave Us Alone Coalition has become an important hub of conservative political organizing. President Bush began sending a representative to the Wednesday Meeting even before he formally announced his candidacy for president. "Now a White House aide attends each week," reported USA Today in June 2001. "Vice President Cheney sends his own representative. So do GOP congressional leaders, right-leaning think tanks, conservative advocacy groups and some like-minded K Street lobbyists. The meeting has been valuable to the White House because it is the political equivalent of one-stop shopping. By making a single pitch, the administration can generate pressure on members of Congress, calls to radio talk shows and political buzz from dozens of grassroots organizations. It also enables the White House to hear conservatives vent in private -- and to respond -- before complaints fester. "[1] () "Cutting the government in half in one generation is both an ambitious and reasonable goal," Norquist stated in May 2000. "If we work hard we will accomplish this and more by 2025. Then the conservative movement can set a new goal. I have a recommendation: To cut government in half again by 2050."[2] () Norquist based this premise on an earlier statement: "Now that the federal budget is in balance - indeed in substantial surplus - it is the right time for the conservative movement to establish a new goal. We said we wanted to balance the federal budget - we did." Of course, this statement is no longer true thanks to the Bush administration's tax cuts and increases in military spending. Even within conservative circles, Norquist's combative personality has made enemies. Conservative columnist Tucker Carlson once called him a "mean-spirited, humorless, dishonest little creep ... the leering, drunken uncle everyone else wishes would stay home."[3] () [edit] Biography Norquist grew up in Weston, Massachusetts. Although he is best known as the head of Americans for Tax Reform, which campaigns against income taxes, his introduction to conservative politics was rooted in the anti-Soviet rhetoric of the Cold War. "I was actually a foreign-policy conservative first," he told an interviewer 00.000.1998. His political leanings were cemented at the age of eleven by reading anti-Communist tracts such as Masters of Deceit by J. Edgar Hoover and Witness by Whittaker Chambers.[4] () He received a B.A. from Harvard College, which he attended from 1974-1978, following by an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School (1979-1981).[5] () Norquist was the Executive Director of College Republican National Committee (CRNC) between 1981-1983.

They built and destroyed a pseudo Berlin Wall for the press and printed thousands of posters depicting marching Russian troops with the caption, 'The Soviet Union Needs You….Support a Nuclear Freeze'," a biogrpahical profile notes.[6] () As President of Americans for Tax Reform Norquist has used the TAXPAYER PROTECTION PLEDGE as a vehicle to mobilise anti-tax activists and gain commitments from candidates for federal and state office to oppose all tax increases.

".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy Karl Rove From Disinfopedia Karl C. Rove was appointed as Assistant to the President and Senior Advisor to the President by George Walker Bush. Rove is considered to be George Walker Bush's number one strategist. Considered to be a "neo-con" (neo-conservative), Rove's name has also been linked to Richard M. Nixon and "dirty tricks." "Prior to his current appointment, Karl Rove served as chief strategist for the Bush-Cheney 2000 Presidential campaign and as president of Karl Rove & Company, an Austin, Texas-based public affairs firm. He previously served as a member of the Board of International Broadcasting, which oversees operations of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty + served on the board of the McDonald Observatory. Rove also taught at the LBJ School of Public Affairs and in the Journalism Department at the University of Texas at Austin.[1] (
) Rove, born December 25, 1950, in Denver, Colorado, attended the University of Utah before dropping out to become College Republican National Committee (CRNC) Executive Director from 1970-1972. He went on to become CRNC National Chairman 1973-1974. Slowly working his way up the political ladder doing campaign work for a number of Texas Republicans, Rove earned a reputation of being a shrewd political strategist. [2] ()[3] (Reagan 00.000.1980 + then worked in Texas for Republican politicans, among them Senator Phil Gramm. Rove started a consulting firm, Karl Rove & Company, 00.000.1981 and is credited with statewide political successes. He helped guide George W. Bush to win the gubernatorial election there 00.000.1994, then ran Bush's presidential campaign in 2000. A close advisor to the president, he manages the Office of Political Affairs, the Office of Public Liaison and the Office of Strategic Initiatives at the White House." [4] () "He previously served as chief strategist for the Bush for President Campaign and for 18 years before that, president of Karl Rove & Company, an Austin, Texas-based public affairs firm that worked for Republican candidates, non-partisan causes + non-profit groups. His clients have included over 75 Republican U.S. Senate, Congressional and gubernatorial candidates in 24 states, as well as the Moderate Party of Sweden." [5] (College Republican National Committee (CRNC) Executive Director from 1970-1972." [7] () Robert Bryce wrote in the Austin Chronicle in March 2000, that Rove, "an avid student of history, ... probably knows more about the American political process than many college professors. Despite that fact, Rove has never had time to finish his college degree. Over the past three decades, he has attended nearly half a dozen colleges + he's currently [2000] within spitting distance of getting his degree in political science at UT. He has been provisionally accepted into the school's doctoral program in government." [8] () [edit] Rove's Political "Savvy" In the same March 2000 article, Bryce says that "Rove has the same killer quality that Lee Atwater had. He's super-confident + a bit of a show-off. He loves to recount facts and figures regarding delegates, historical vote counts + presidential election strategies from the past 100 years. That pedantic style, combined with lots of winning campaigns, has made him, without doubt, the most powerful political consultant in Texas. And although many politicos look to him for guidance, he denies that consultants create an image for a candidate. 'That assumes you can fool everybody,' he told [Bryce] during an interview several years ago, 'that the masses are asses. People are pretty damn smart. What you've got to do is present your case in the best light possible, with credibility and integrity.'" [9] () Murray S.

Grover Norquist - SourceWatch
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy Grover Norquist From SourceWatch Grover Glenn Norquist (born Oct. 19, 1956) is a well-connected Republican activist with close ties to business and the media. Table of contents 1 Norquist the conservative activist 2 Biography 3 Positions held 4 Grover Norquist the lobbyist 5 Other Related SourceWatch Resources 6 External Links (undated) 7 Other External Links (organized by date) [edit]Norquist the conservative activist He is one of the "Gang of Five" in Nina Easton's 2000 book by that name, giving the history of leaders of the modern conservative movement. He has been described as "a thumb-in-the-eye radical rightist" (The Nation) + "Tom Paine crossed with Lee Atwater plus just a soupcon of Madame Defarge" (P.J. O'Rourke). Norquist is famous for his widely quoted comment that he wants to shrink government "down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub." Norquist largely rejects relativism and is comfortable assigning the labels of "good" and "bad". The pledge of "no new taxes" that so many Republican legislators signed was his project. He holds regular meetings for conservative leaders in which strategy is discussed. He once commented, "We play for keeps; they play for lunch." "Adept at media appearances, Norquist writes a monthly politics column for the American Spectator magazine + frequently speaks at regional and state think tanks of the movement. He is also well connected with large scale U.S. business interests, having served as economist and chief speech writer for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (1983-1984)." Shortly after Bill Clinton was elected president of the United States 00.000.1992, Norquist began hosting a weekly get-together of conservatives in his Washington office to coordinate activities and strategy. "We were sort of like the Mensheviks after the Russian Revolution," recalls Marshall Wittmann, who attended the first meeting as a representative of the Christian Coalition. The "Wednesday Meeting" of Norquist's Leave Us Alone Coalition has become an important hub of conservative political organizing. President Bush began sending a representative to the Wednesday Meeting even before he formally announced his candidacy for president. "Now a White House aide attends each week," reported USA Today in June 2001. "Vice President Cheney sends his own representative. So do GOP congressional leaders, right-leaning think tanks, conservative advocacy groups and some like-minded K Street lobbyists. The meeting has been valuable to the White House because it is the political equivalent of one-stop shopping. By making a single pitch, the administration can generate pressure on members of Congress, calls to radio talk shows and political buzz from dozens of grassroots organizations. It also enables the White House to hear conservatives vent in private -- and to respond -- before complaints fester. "[1] (
) "My ideal citizen is the self-employed, homeschooling, IRA-owning guy with a concealed-carry permit. Because that person doesn't need the goddamn government for anything," he said describing members of the "Leave-Us-Alone Coalition". [2] () (IRA is the acronym for Individual Retirement Account, a privately held superannuation account). "Cutting the government in half in one generation is both an ambitious and reasonable goal," Norquist stated in May 2000. "If we work hard we will accomplish this and more by 2025. Then the conservative movement can set a new goal. I have a recommendation: To cut government in half again by 2050."[3] () Norquist based this premise on an earlier statement: "Now that the federal budget is in balance - indeed in substantial surplus - it is the right time for the conservative movement to establish a new goal. We said we wanted to balance the federal budget - we did." Of course, this statement is no longer true thanks to the Bush administration's tax cuts and increases in military spending. Even within conservative circles, Norquist's combative personality has made enemies. Conservative columnist Tucker Carlson once called him a "mean-spirited, humorless, dishonest little creep ... the leering, drunken uncle everyone else wishes would stay home."[4] () In an interview with the Australian Financial Review's Washington D.C. journalist, Tony Walker, Norquist said the "reason why the Republican takeover of the House, Senate and presidency is important is because we can now avoid passing legislation to buttress the weakened walls of the left's edifice and we can pass legislation to undermine these structures." Norquist described three key planks of his agenda for Bu's seconf term as President as being aimed at crippling the financial base of the Democratic Party. First, he told Walker, is tort reform which would mean "trial lawyers have fewer ways to get rich and can't give as much money to the Democratic Party". [5] () Secondly, he said, would be legislative changes making it harder for unions to provide funding to political parties, a measure aimed primarily aimed at cutting funding to the Democratic Party. Finally, the promotion of free trade which further weakens the influence of unions. Norquist sees the opportunity to perpetuate the conservative revolution beyond Bush's next four years too. "The government consumes 30per cent of people's incomes; that's hardly winning [but] if we do our job right over the next four years, weakening the institutions of the left, reducing the cost of government, reforming the government so that it becomes less intrusive in such a way that we deserve and win the presidency in 2008, that would give us another eight years," he told Walker.[6] () [edit] Biography Norquist grew up in Weston, Massachusetts. Although he is best known as the head of Americans for Tax Reform, which campaigns against income taxes, his introduction to conservative politics was rooted in the anti-Soviet rhetoric of the Cold War. "I was actually a foreign-policy conservative first," he told an interviewer 00.000.1998. His political leanings were cemented at the age of eleven by reading anti-Communist tracts such as Masters of Deceit by J. Edgar Hoover and Witness by Whittaker Chambers.[7] () He received a B.A. from Harvard College, which he attended from 1974-1978, following by an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School (1979-1981).[8] () Norquist was the Executive Director of College Republican National Committee (CRNC) between 1981-1983. "As Executive Director of the College Republican National Committee 01.Jan.1980-31.Dec.1989 -in the s-he oversaw the transformation of the committee into a conservative grassroots powerhouse for the Reagan adiministration.

Shamir noted, with no lack of irony, the meeting of the Mega Group, which had taken place the previous day at the Manhattan mansion of Edgar Bronfman. Shamir first described a meeting he had recently had with a Vermont-based psychoanalyst, the nephew of Israel's first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion. The nephew prided himself on the fact that his closest friends were Palestinians + that he rejected the idea of a Jewish "tribal" identity, preferring to view all human beings as brethren. URL: ;Board=news_crime&Number=29279631416.May 2005 Not So Cool But then, a 13.Mar.2001 dispatch by the Jewish Telegraph Agency (JTA) revealed that the Mega Group is more than a loose bunch of Jewish billionaires out to do good. The JTA reported that newly installed Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was about to launch a two-pronged propaganda offensive inside the USA, aimed at winning USA support for his Sharon plans to overturn the “Mideast peace process”. First, the JTA revealed, the Sharon government announced that it was hiring two USA public relations firms- Rubenstein Associates + Morris, Carrick and Guma- to peddle the Israeli government "spin" inside the USA media + in policymaking circles in New York + Washington. The JTA wire continued, "More controversially, a handful of Jewish mega-donors has created a think-tank they hope will generate long-term strategies for presenting Israel in a favorable light."URL: ;Board=news_crime&Number=292796314Indyk's "six-month sabbatical" never ended, but it was not until 00.00.1987 that the Australian got his first green card, permitting him to work in the USA. 12.Jan.1993 Indyk was made a USA citizen -just eight days before Indyk was appointed to the incoming Clinton Administration's National Security Council (NSC) staff as Senior Director for Near East + South Asian Affairs - Indyk had already been an informal Mideast policy adviser to President Bush [BGHW948], at the initiative of Dennis Ross, Bush [BGHW948]'s Assistant Secretary of State, previously a deputy to Indyk at WINEP. At the time of the Mega hunt, Indyk had Ross' old job as Assistant Secretary of State for the Near East. URL: ;Board=news_crime&Number=292796314Mega-Suspects Even though the Mega hunt was formally called off, still in some USA intelligence quarters, the effort to unearth the suspected Israeli spy cell apparently continued. 00.Sep.2000 -after USA Ambassador Martin Indyk had his security clearances temporarily lifted- a CIA team of counterintelligence specialists arrived in Israel, Ostensibly, Indyk had breached security guidelines by bringing classified USA government documents to his residence in Tel Aviv. But it later was revealed that the CIA probe was triggered by an 00.Aug.2000 unauthorized meeting between Indyk + the former head of the Mossad, Ephraim Halevy, which the ambassador had never reported back to Washington. URL: ;Board=news_crime&Number=292796314The idea that the Israeli government was running another spy operation inside the USA national security establishment created a tremendous stir. 07.May 1997 The Washington Post, in its leak, had reported, "One official with knowledge of the FBI investigation into the identity of Mega cautioned that much remained unknown. But the official said that if it turned out that a senior USA official was passing sensitive information to Israeli authorities, it could prove more serious than the espionage case involving Jonathan Jay Pollard, a former Navy analyst who was convicted in 00.000.1986 of selling USA military intelligence documents to Israel."16.May 2005 -To this day-, the Pollard affair is a hot-button issue inside the USA intelligence community. 00.Nov.1985 -At the time of Pollard's arrest-, it was known that the Navy analyst had been "tasked" to obtain specific USA military intelligence secrets, by someone much higher up in the USA intelligence community. To this day, the hunt for "Mr. X," Pollard's inside controller, continues. 00.000.1986 EIR had revealed the existence of not merely a "Mr. X," but an "X Committee," made up of nearly a dozen top-level Pentagon + National Security Council officials, all suspected of having been part of the Pollard spy network.Given the seriousness of the Mega security breach, the abrupt shutdown of the mole hunt naturally prompted some wild speculation about the circumstances under which the search for Mega was abandoned. 00.Mar.1999 UK author Gordon Thomas released a book, Gideon's Spies, which alleged that Israel had blackmailed the Clinton Administration, with the threat to release tapped telephone conversations between the President and Monica Lewinsky, to force Washington to abandon the Mega hunt. Indeed, in her testimony before independent counsel Kenneth Starr, Lewinsky had reported that the President had warned her, on March 29, 1997, at the height of the Mega hunt, that he suspected the White House telephones were being tapped by agents of an unnamed foreign country.URL: ;Board=news_crime&Number=29279631416.May 2005 "Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective -- a new world order -- can emerge" -- Skull & Bonesman, President George HW Bush 11.Sep.1990 (eleven years prior, to the day)URL: 16.May 2005 WHO IS "MEGA" and Where is "DOV" ZAKHEIM ? - Forums powered by ...

Quotes "Can you smell money?!?!?!" Jack Abramoff wrote. --Quoted

01.May .2005 New York Times. [1] (ABRAMOFF.html?) "This is really high on the priority list of tribal concerns. ... This is a cash cow in many circumstances + tribes are concerned about protection of tribal assets." [2] () [edit]Exemplfying the "political decadence of late-stage conservatism" "Well-connected Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff came into the news lately when it turned out he had collected more than $9 million in fees from various Indian tribes during the past two years, although tribal interests faced little political opposition at that time. (He was dumped by his firm, Greenberg Traurig, which cited 'personal transactions and related conduct which are unacceptable to the firm.' Abramoff responded with a statement noting that Washington lobbying 'is different from other areas in the practice of law.' Indeed.) But while Abramoff is far from Washington's first corrupt lobbyist, he's among a troika of right-wing operatives who exemplify a more recent trend: the political decadence of late-stage conservatism." Source: Washington Monthly, April 2004 (). [edit]Master of Sleaze "Only a genius like Abramoff could make money lobbying against an Indian tribe's casino and then turn around and make money defending that tribe against himself. Only a giant like Abramoff would have the guts to use one tribe's casino money to finance a Focus on the Family crusade against gambling in order to shut down a rival tribe's casino. "Only an artist like Abramoff could suggest to a tribe that it pay him by taking out life insurance policies on its eldest members. Then when the elders dropped off they could funnel the insurance money through a private school and into his pockets. "This is sleaze of a high order. And yet according to reports in The Washington Post and elsewhere, Abramoff accomplished it all," wrote David Brooks in the March 22, 2005, New York Times. [3] () [edit]Committee on Indian Affairs The following comes from a September 29, 2004, press release posted by the Committee on Indian Affairs. [4] () "After seven months of investigating charges of Indian tribes being victimized by high-profile lobbyists, today Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell presided over a hearing of the Indian Affairs Committee and received testimony that Jack Abramoff and Mike Scanlon + the corporations they owned, had walked away with nearly seventy million dollars in fees for what can only be described as less than honorable dealings. "'I am horrified by what I believe these men and their accomplices pulled off to the detriment of the tribes and their members. By manipulating tribal elections and installing people favorable to their greedy ends, they engineered a situation and enriched themselves --- all the while holding these same Indian people in incredibly low regard.' Said Campbell. "The low regard in which these men held their Indian clients was clearly evidenced by emails, entered into the hearing record today by Senator Campbell. 'They called them monkeys, mofos, morons and idiots + even worse!' Said Campbell. 'I could not believe this until I had actually seen the emails. And this from the man who called racist the Washington Post reporter that broke the story on his fraudulent activities.'" [edit]Capital Athletic Foundation According to a heavily-documented March 1, 2005, letter from Melanie Sloan of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington about Abramoff, the Capital Athletic Foundation (CAF) is a 501c3 organization "started by Abramoff in 2000 with only $12,850." [5] (Abramoff_Memo.pdf) Sloan's information was taken from R. Jeffrey Smith's September 28, 2004, Washington Post article "Foundation's Funds Diverted From Mission. Records Detail Spending By GOP Lobbyist Abramoff." () In 2001, CAF received $1 million from the Coushatta and $177,415 from Foxcom. The Coushatta apparently believed that the donation was for a sky box from which Abramoff would lobby Members of Congress during Redskins games. In 2002, CAF collected $2.56 million from 9 donors including 3 tribes. In 2003, CAF collected $2.15 million from tribes, Mike Scanlon and an internet casino client of Abramoff’s. $2.13 million of the money went to the Eshkol Academy, a school started [in 2001] by Abramoff. (See below.) In a February 2003 email, Abramoff told Scanlon to make sure that his share of money went to Eshkol directly – 'using school as conduit for some of our activities . .. If that won’t fly with them, use CAF.' CAF also paid $120,000 in August 2002 for Abramoff, Ney [Rep. R-OH], Ralph Reed and then-General Services Administration Chief of Staff David Safavian to St. Andrews to play golf with a stop in London on way back. Ney later claimed that the trip’s purpose was to raise money for a foundation, but there were no fundraising events during the course of the trip." On April 17, 2005, Tax Analysts reported that in a March 16, 2005, letter, Senate Finance Committee Chair Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking minority member Max Baucus (D-MT) had "asked lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his wife, Pamela, for various financial and organizational data regarding the Capital Athletic Foundation (CAF), a charity the Abramoffs founded," and "requested information about three other organizations Abramoff has had ties to: Eshkol Inc., the National Center for Public Policy Research (NCPPR) + Kaygold LLC, a consulting service owned by Abramoff. (For the Finance Committee letter, see Doc 2005-5551.)" "The committee opened the investigation following allegations that Abramoff used NCPPR and CAF to pay for overseas trips for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas + other Republican lawmakers and that he attempted to influence lawmakers with large donations from various American Indian tribes." [6] (Abramoff%22&;prssweb=Search&ei=UTF-8&fl=0&b=321&u=www.taxanalysts.com/www/taxwirewww.nsf/DocNoLookup/22D06AC806C9A08285256FC7007534D7%3FOpenDocument&w=%22jack+abramoff%22&d=EA69CD5ADB&icp=1&.intl=us )[7] () "The committee had asked Abramoff to provide a list of the foundation’s employees and their compensation packages, an accounting of the travel and conferences attended by the foundation’s employees + details of the foundation’s investments, among other information." As of April 20, 2005, The Hill reported that Abramoff had not been "responsive" to the Committee's request that the documents be provided by April 15, 2005. [8] () [edit]Channel One Channel One is the "in-school marketing company, which compels 8 million kids [grades six through twelve] to watch two minutes of ads each schoolday." Commercial Alert reported February 13, 2005, that Channel One has "big troubles." First of all, its president, Jim Ritts, quit. Secondly, "Jack Abramoff. Channel One's main Washington lobbyist, has quit + is now under investigation by a federal grand jury, according to the Washington Post. This is very bad for Channel One, because it desperately needs political influence to keep its contracts with the federal government." [9] () [edit]Republican Activism [edit]College Republicans "Abramoff got his start in politics while at Brandeis, chairing the Massachusetts Alliance of College Republicans () from 1980-1981. Teaming with Harvard contemporary and lifelong fellow traveler Grover Norquist, Abramoff's organizational acumen allegedly won Massachusetts for Reagan." [10] (abramoff-college.html) "'The College Republicans have been credited with Ronald Reagan's paperslim victory in Massachusetts' 00.000.1980 as well. As head of the Massachusetts Federation of College Republican Clubs, Jack Abramoff (elected National Chairman 00.000.1981) produced over 10,000 youth votes."

19. Tucker Carlson - Disinfopedia
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy Tucker Carlson From Disinfopedia PBS's "Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered," host and managing editor CNN's "Crossfire," co-host "The Chris Matthews Show," panelist Policy Review, editorial staff Table of contents 1 Controversy over Gore, Wellstone memorial 2 Women want to be "spanked" and "bring a friend" 3 Wartime flip-flop 4 Democrats love crossdressers... 5 ... but hate churchgoers 6 Against the 'do not call' list, but don't call me 7 Hughes a liar 8 Norquist a "creep" [edit] Controversy over Gore, Wellstone memorial In a Weekly Standard cover story, Carlson claimed Gore had said the U.S. would have to spend $100 billion a year on his plan, when he actually wrote the rest of the world would pick up most of the tab. Carlson also quoted Gore as writing "We now face the prospect of a global civil war", calling it a typical quote. But Gore said no such thing. Instead, Gore wrote we faced "the prospect of a kind of global civil war". Carlson further claimed Gore had kept up a busy campaign schedule on the day his sister died 00.000.1984, accusing him of callousness. But as his advance person wrote the magazine, Gore immediately flew to the hospital upon hearing she'd "taken a turn for the worse" and before that had often driven across the state of Tennessee to visit her. Upon hearing this, Carlson responded by saying the real issue was not Gore's campaigning, but "the cheap way he treated her memory at the Democratic convention last year." What was he referring to? Gore had recounted his final conversation with his sister, who died of lung cancer + explained how it inspired him to fight to protect "our children from the dangers of smoking." Carlson claimed that during Gore's 1984 senatorial campaign, Gore "didn't talk much about curbing smoking that year." But he later went on to quote a journalist who said that during the campaign Gore "was willing to call the tobacco industry Merchants of Death." On Crossfire, Carlson said Sen. Paul Wellstone's memorial was "hijacked by partisan zealots and turned into a political rally. Republican friends of Senator Wellstone were booed and shouted down as they tried to speak." He called it "revolting" and said "It makes me sick." But as Carlson admitted to Al Franken, he hadn't actually watched the service + the events that he described did not happen. Duncan B. Black, Tucker Carlson: An unfiltered Media Matters for America analysis of the new PBS host (
), Media Matters for America, June 17, 2004. [edit] Women want to be "spanked" and "bring a friend" "One area of liberal phenomenon I support is female bi-sexuality -- this apparent increased willingness of girls to bring along a friend. That's a pretty good thing." [1] () [edit] Democrats love crossdressers... "So there you have it: cross-dressing and abortion, two great Democratic values that go great together." [5] () "... the Democratic Party has announced a new affirmative action plan for gays, lesbians + cross-dressers. According to the Associated Press, the party has set sexuality-based quotas ..." [6] () But the AP article () said exactly the opposite: "Officials are quick to point out that the goals aren't quotas. Neither a state nor a presidential campaign is penalized if they do not reach these goals." The article also noted the plan was not affiliated with the national party, but state parties. [edit] ... but hate churchgoers Commenting during The Chris Matthews Show: "People who run the Democratic party, its activist wing have contempt for churchgoers + my experience is they absolutely do have contempt for churchgoers." [7] () Carlson provided no evidence for the claim. However, a CBS News/New York Times poll conducted two months earlier showed that 67% of Democrats think religion is very or extremely important, while only 9% consider it not at all important. [8] () Shant Mesrobian, "Tucker Carlson on Dems' outreach to "gays, lesbians + cross-dressers" ()", Media Matters for America, May 26, 2004. Nicole Casta, et. al., "It's not just the cable guys: conservative misinformation on Sunday morning ()", Media Matters for America, May 24, 2004. [edit] Against the 'do not call' list, but don't call me Carlson denounced the federal government's do-not-call list, which allows people to opt-out of receiving phone calls from telemarketers, saying: "Score one for any yuppie community. They've won the right to trample on free speech" and calling it "special interests legislation". [9] () When the audience dared Carlson to give out his home phone number, he pretended to comply but actually gave out the number of Fox News's Washington switchboard. [10] () [edit] Hughes a liar Carlson also interviewed George W. Bush for a 1999 profile in Talk, which featured Bush "swearing like a truck driver, making fun of Karla Faye Tucker's death penalty appeals, mimicking her saying, 'Don't kill me!'". In response, Bush communications director Karen Hughes said Carlson was lying and told Carlson she'd never heard Bush use profanity, even though Carlson claims he'd seen Hughes listen to Bush use profanity. Carlson told Salon: "I've obviously been lied to a lot by campaign operatives, but the striking thing about the way she lied was she knew I knew she was lying + she did it anyway. There is no word in English that captures that. It almost crosses over from bravado into mental illness." [11] () [edit] Norquist a "creep" Carlson has broken ranks with some conservatives, calling fellow conservative Grover Norquist a "mean-spirited, humorless, dishonest little creep ... the leering, drunken uncle everyone else wishes would stay home."[12] () Retrieved from "" This page was last modified 21:00, 29 Jun 2004.

Bush grew up in Midland and Houston, Texas. George W. Bush was sworn into office as the 43rd President of the United States on January 20, 2001[1] (

Bush "served as an F-102 fighter pilot in the Texas Air National Guard and ... [later] received a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School 00.000.1975. After graduating, he moved back to Midland and began a career in the energy business." [2] () The organization Texans for Truth has called into question whether Bush went AWOL from his Air National Guard service. "While other oil ventures failed, George W. kept his (Arbusto) afloat in the 1980s thanks to family connections and international financiers attempting to build and nurture relationships with his father, who was elected vice president 00.000.1980." [3] (00.000.1982, Philip Uzielli worked out a deal with George W. to purchase a 10 percent stake in Arbusto for $1 million. The entire company was valued at less than $400,000. In February 1984, George W. agreed to a merger of Bush Energy (formerly Arbusto) with an oil exploration company called Spectrum 7 in which William DeWitt Jr. and Mercer Reynolds III would each control 20.1 percent and George W. would own 16.3 percent. George W. was named chairman and CEO of Spectrum 7, which brought him an annual salary of $75,000. [Harper's Magazine, February 2000.] "In a six-month period 00.000.1986, Spectrum 7 lost $400,000 and owed more than $3 million with no hope of paying those debts off." In September 1986, a New York lawyer, Alan Quasha, owner of Harken Energy Corporation, "agreed to acquire Spectrum 7 in a deal that handed over one share of publicly traded stock for five shares of Spectrum 7, which at the time were practically worthless." [WP, July 30, 1999.] "After the acquisition, George W. was named to the Harken board of directors. He was given $600,000 worth of Harken stock options and landed a job as a consultant that paid him $120,000 a year." "After working on his father's successful 1988 presidential campaign, he assembled the group of partners [4] (00.000.1989."[5] () "He served as managing general partner of the Texas Rangers until he was elected Governor on November 8, 1994, with 53.5 percent of the vote. He became the first Governor in Texas history to be elected to consecutive four-year terms when he was re-elected on November 3, 1998, with 68.6 percent of the vote."[6] () Texas Governor: January, 1995-January, 2001. Bush married Laura Welch, a "former teacher and librarian + they have twin daughters, Barbara and Jenna."[7] () Taken from Bush's White House Biography (). [edit]The wastrel son 18 May 2004 (): "The Wastrel Son" by Paul Krugman, New York Times Op-Ed: "He was a stock character 00.000.19th-century fiction: the wastrel son who runs up gambling debts in the belief that his wealthy family, concerned for its prestige, will have no choice but to pay off his creditors. In the novels such characters always come to a bad end. Either they bring ruin to their families, or they eventually find themselves disowned. "George Bush reminds me of those characters and not just because of his early career, in which friends of the family repeatedly bailed out his failing business ventures. Now that he sits in the White House, he's still counting on other people to settle his debts not to protect the reputation of his family, but to protect the reputation of the country." "As long as political figures aren't willing to disown Mr. Bush's debt the impossible situation in which he has placed America's soldiers there isn't much they can do. "So how will it all end? The cries of 'stay the course' [in Iraq] are getting fainter, while the calls for a quick exit are growing. In other words, it seems increasingly likely that the nation will end up disowning Mr. Bush and his debts. "That will mean settling for an outcome in Iraq that, however we spin it, will look a lot like defeat -- and the nation's prestige will be damaged by that outcome.

24. Americans for Tax Reform - Disinfopedia
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy Americans for Tax Reform From Disinfopedia Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) is ostensibly a group that pushes for lower taxes. It has close ties to the Republican Party and has frequently allied itself with the tobacco industry. Table of contents 1 Personnel 2 Funding 3 History 1 ATR helps out Big Tobacco 2 ATR's opposition to anti-tobacco lawsuits 3 Wining and dining with Norquist 4 Tax and spend ... for war 4.1 Other Disinfopedia Resources 5 External links [edit] Personnel ATR is headed by Grover Norquist, one of the most connected members of the new right wing movement. He has close ties to the Republican Party, large U.S. business interests + both the subsidized and regular U.S. media. Norquist helped the Heritage Foundation write the Republican's 1994 Contract With America. Shortly thereafter, Norquist led a right wing charge to "de-fund" the left, declaring that "We will hunt [these liberal groups] down one by one and extinguish their funding sources." Norquist has also worked as a lobbyist for clients including Microsoft, American Business for Legal Immigration, Distilled Spirits Council, Edison Electric Institute, Interactive Gaming Council + British Petroleum. [edit] Funding Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation Carthage Foundation; see Scaife Foundations JM Foundation John M. Olin Foundation Sarah Scaife Foundation; see Scaife Foundations R.J. Reynolds Philip Morris Tobacco Institute [edit] History In a May 25 1989 memo to the Steering Committee of Americans for Tax Reform – a document that was curiously found in the files of the now defunct Tobacco Institute – Grover Norquist excitedly reported progress on the ‘anti-tax front’. Not only had a swag of member of Congress promised to veto any tax increase, Norquist reported, there had been “three Wall Street Journal editorials highlighting the importance of ATR’s pledge campaign in stopping tax hikes”. He also reported that an article in the Washington Times “which kindly quotes an agreement that I will have input into the question of what is a ‘duck’ – ie tax increase + what is not”. [1] (
) Gingrich, as Republican whip in the House of Representatives, negotiated an agreement with the then President George Bush to vet any budget proposals. Under the deal, Gingrich would advise on whether proposed revenue raising proposals were in fact tax increases, or 'ducks' as Gingrich termed them. “It is fair to say, in dealing with Darman [White House Budget Director] and the administration in general on what is and isn’t a duck, I would lean very heavily on Richard Rahn (chief economist for the US Chamber of Commerce), Jeff Eisenach and Grover Norquist … They have a very good sense of the distinction between ducks and geese”, Gingrich said. “The president has agreed the administration team will consult with the House Republicans and that for my part I will, as whip, in turn consult with these three people regarding the duck test,” he said. [2] () [edit]ATR helps out Big Tobacco Norquist's role as a major player on tax policy came at a time when the tobacco industry was floundering with its conventional lobbying. In an internal Philip Morris memo, in May 1989 Roy Marden outlined the company’s problem: “There is a consensus that we have lost the public opinion battle concerning excises. To attempt to regain the upper hand, we need to improve the argumentation with federal and state officials, create new ways to use current ideas + devise new ideas, new research and new ways of communicating with policymakers”. [3] () Ahead of the election of Bill Clinton as President of the US in late 1992, the R.J. Reynolds tobacco company developed an action plan to address what it described as the “health care excesses issue”. RJR was worried about the possibility that Clinton’s proposals for the introduction of a national health care might “possibly be financed in part by higher cigarette taxes”. [4] () One tactic considered as part of the plan was to consider “possible third-party coalition work” to get ‘credible, non-tobacco voice for hearings and for generating information on issue to media, op-eds, letters etc”. Likely coalition partners included “insurance companies, Americans for Tax Reform and Citizens Against Government Waste.” RJR canvassed the prospect of placing a story in “Beltway journals, other, typically conservative, thought leader publications”. The draft plan stated RJR supervisor “Tim Hyde to work with Grover Norquist for possible by-line piece.” [It is unclear whether the article ever proceeded]. On September 5 1993 - Labor Day – in 152 newspapers across the US, ATR published a major advertisement “How much longer can this go on?” it asked over a graphic of a torrent of water pouring into an overflowing leaky bucket labelled ‘wasteful government spending’. [5] () “Next week the President will introduce a plan requiring billions more in spending to reform the health care system. Along with that proposal will be another huge increase in taxes to pay for it. Some of the new taxes being discussed are on everything from employment benefits, insurance premiums and medical services, to consumer products such as alcohol and tobacco”, the ad stated. The ad went on to urge readers to call their political representatives urging them to “cut spending before raising taxes”. An internal PM memo revealed the tobacco and alcohol company’s close association with the advertisement. “The ad was developed and refined based on the opinions of focus groups conducted between May and August in eight cities”, the memo said of the ad which was “targeting 51 congressmen in 27 states”. The strategy behind the ad, the memo stated, was to “lay groundwork for FET fight by highlighting the need to cut wasteful spending before further tax increases” and to “target marginal Members by getting their constituents to call and demand an end to new taxes without spending cuts. [6] () In August 1993, when Philip Morris had convened a meeting to discuss their forthcoming campaign against federal excise taxes. Roger Ailes and Scott Ehrlich from Ailes Communications were, according to the agenda, scheduled to attend. The agenda was due to review the results from focus groups organised in Houston and Seattle to test advertising concepts such as “Enough is Enough” and “obtain agreement for Labor Day advertising ‘kick-off’”. Also on the agenda of the meeting was the need to resolve a number of key aspects of the advertising campaign including the recommendation for “sponsor confirmation”. While no minutes appear amongst the tobacco industry documents, it appears PM chose Americans for Tax Reform to front the advertising campaign. [7] () In a March 1994 review of its lobbying options for defending its business, countering Clinton’s healthcare plan was a high priority. “The strategy is to, at each stage, build support for reducing the size and scope of the health care plan thereby reducing the need for funding at the levels suggested by the Administration,” the review stated. [8] () In a later section canvassing advertising options, PM explained “we have developed ads on FET developed by Ailes Communications. Only a couple were run and they were run under the name of a tax organization as focus groups showed this was most effective”.[9] () While the cost of the advertising was not disclosed, PM put a brave face on the fact that a minuscule number of the 5.5 million purportedly reached by the ad followed through. “Although people most likely to contact their Representatives already knew how to do so, the ad generated more than 2,000 calls to the number who wanted to contact their Representative but didn’t know hoe”, the memo stated. In a memo so senior PM public affairs staff, David Nicoli cited the ads approvingly even though he got the organisation’s name wrong. “Now that the Presidents plan has been released, it will be very important for anti-tax groups nationwide to further amplify the theme that Citzens for Tax Reform established in their ads”, he wrote.[10] () “To aid our grassroots efforts, we need to have as many anti-tax groups as possible with whom we have relationships attack the Clinton plan generally for the massive tax increases it contains and, where appropriate, specifically for the large FET it proposes,” he continued. (Emphasis in original). On 20 September, ATR followed up with another ad, “Let’s shut off new tax increases … to stop wasteful spending”. [11] () Following the ad, Scott Ehrlich from Ailes Communications sent a confidential memo to PM letting them know that “Norquist and ATR continue to appear on talk radio around the country”. Ehrlich went on to flag possible options for responding after Clinton announced his plan including what he tagged the “underground attack” mobilising pressure on members of congress through their home towns. “This kind of effort would probably entail more money, however it would be designed to hit hard at the key representatives through their soft underbelly while attempting to stay under the radar of the national news media,” he wrote. [12] () In February 1994 Philip Morris public relations staffer David Nicoli and lobbyist Kathleen Linehan were pondering the possibilities of generating letters opposing an increase in the Federal Excise Tax [FET] on tobacco. Nicoli turned his mind to potential of the anti-tax groups. In an e-mail to Linehan, Nicoli confessed that he didn’t have a “good enough grasp on these groups to give you a final read yet”. “But tentatively, I like the anti-tax groups (Tax Foundation, de Toqueville Institute, Citizens Against Government Waste, National Taxpayers Union, Americans for Tax Reform, etc) because we are in an election year, they can give a good spin on the FET, they can raise havoc w/the rest of the taxes in the Clinton plan too, we have good relationships w/them + some of them are no holds barred types that can generate some real heat in the field”, he confided. “I know these are seen as right wing groups, but our agendas match up well and “swing” Ds (Democrats-ed) have to pay some attention to this kind of noise in an election year that follows the biggest tax increase in history … this is the best direction I can see it going in for the time being to compliment [sic] CSE’s efforts on E&C and our own grassroots efforts,” Nicoli concluded.[13] () (It is unclear whether Nicoli is still with Philip Morris but, according to the Philip Morris website, as of April 2002 he was Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Strategy and Social Responsibility, Philip Morris Management Corporation.) In a February 1994 roundup of Philip Morris lobbying activities, Craig Fuller outlined elements of the company’s efforts to defeat Clinton’s health care proposal. One element, he explained, involved “working with Americans for Tax Reform to develop details on the economic and criminal effects of the prohibitively high-cigarette excises in Canada, including late breaking coverage of the recent tax rollback.."

This data will never be deleted. They have the right to sell this data at any time. Anyone can buy it, including the government. Care to guess what the government might do with the result of data mining the immense google database for "free market activists" under Patriot Act 5?The free market solution is to never use google + I don't. However I can't help but notice that there are google ads being served on many pages of this message board.This means that a database of the IP addresses + reading patterns of every user of this board is being compiled by an outside organization with a commercial interest in providing whatever data they glean to the highest bidder, probably without the knowledge of most people browsing and posting to this forum.I have attempted to block google ads by editing my hosts file, but google is changing the URL to get around this, so every so often they get through and I have to edit the hosts file again.It is possible that the government is already compiling this data + google will make no difference. But if there's one thing libertarians know, it's that government is dumb + inefficient. Google is not dumb. Google is efficient. And they can be made a branch of the government's domestic spying network at a moment's notice.I suggest that google ads be removed from this system in the interests of protecting the privacy of this board's members.

The Dominionists want to "modify" our present understanding of the Constitution -- that is, they want to chuck out freedom and turn this nation into a theocracy.Once our government properly equates Moon and the Dominionists with the Nazis, the Soviets and other past menaces to liberty, we must arrest every politician and business leader who has received money from, or formed an alliance with, these anti-democratic forces.The charge: Treason.

26. Jack Abramoff - SourceWatch
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy Jack Abramoff From SourceWatch Jack Abramoff, a long-time Washington insider, has been a Republican lobbyist and fundraiser and was a Bush Pioneer. According to the College Republican National Committee (CRNC) web site (
), he was Senior Director of Government Affairs for the Greenberg Traurig law and lobbying firm and was CRNC National Chairman from 1981-1985. He is also a Director of the National Center for Public Policy Research. In 2004, Abramoff resigned from Greenberg Traurig amid a scandal related to spending irregularities in his work as a lobbyist for Indian tribes involved in gambling. An archive of Abramoff's biography from the Greenberg Traurig website describes him as follows: Jack Abramoff's practice focuses on building legislative coalitions, grassroots organizing and Washington, DC based lobbying efforts. Jack is considered a top issues strategist. He has been consistently named as one of the nation's most powerful and effective lobbyists in rankings by publications including the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, New York Times, National Journal, Roll Call and Washingtonian Magazine. Jack is directly involved in the Republican party and conservative movement leadership structures and is one of the leading fund raisers for the party and its congressional candidates. He is a former executive director of President Ronald Reagan's grassroots lobbying organization, Citizens For America, where he directed and crafted lobbying efforts on a broad range of issues. Jack also had a direct role in shaping the agenda of the second Reagan presidential term, which, in its later applications, ultimately brought the Republican Party to control of Congress 00.000.1994. "Before this position, Jack was twice elected Chairman of the College Republican National Committee beginning 00.000.1981. He was [sic] oversaw the largest and most effective College Republican National Committee ever, with over 1100 chapters nationwide. He also changed the direction of the committee and made it more activist and conservative than ever before. Jack ran our most successful field programs until that time with very little funding by sending the field representatives out in vans to recruit for months at a time, making the committee more successful than ever before. Jack brought two famous future activists into his administration, Grover Norquist and Ralph Reed, as his Executive Directors. Before this time Jack ran the youth effort for Reagan in Massachusetts which produced 10,000 absentee ballot votes in Reagan’s 3000 vote margin of victory. Jack designed and ran the anti nuclear freeze campaign He is a regular lecturer at Georgetown Law Center on entertainment law topics. Jack has hands-on experience in the entertainment industry, he spent ten years as the producer of a number of feature motion pictures including Red Scorpion, an anti communist film made just after Jack’s term as national chairman of the College Republicans.'

authenticamigos.planetaclix.pt/index.html 13.Apr.2005 For a rather biased look at Fensterwald's history by a buff who disliked him, you may want to skim this page. This source (+ please note that I cannot verify all that he says) alleges that "The Committee To Investigate Assassinations was funded by McCORD ASSOCIATES, which for all practical purposes, was a CIA proprietary." A number of books on Watergate mention a still-mysterious arrangement wherein CIA man James McCord - before the break-in + well before he officially met Fensterwald - sent a number of large checks to (or through ? ) Fensterwald's CtIA. To this day, no-one has explained why McCord would be funding Fensterwald. One occasionally hears the argument that the Committee to Investigate Assassinations was being used as a money laundry. The press discovered this odd business 00.000.1973. URL: I remind readers of this "ancient history" to drive home one lesson, a lesson which even Orson Welles neglected to mention: The boycott worked. The mightiest pressfaker of his generation was brought low by organized action. The mightiest pressfaker of our generation is, of course, Rupert Murdoch. Can the same tactics used against Hearst also work against him? URL: But Seldes reminds us of another factor:From California to New York, labor + liberals + the unions + the universities + notable men including the President + Senators + the head of the Society of Newspaper Editors + hundreds of organizations + thousands of men + women who are the leaders of the intelligent minority, have taken a forthright stand against Hearst. There has been a great boycott of his newspapers + his magazines + his newsreels + his radio stations. There has been repudiation in Congress, in the press, on the platform and from the pulpit. (Emphasis added URL: http://cannonfire.blogspot.com/00.000. 1938 George Seldes' classic expose of press bias + manipulation, “Lords of the Press”. In an eye-opening chapter on William Randolph Hearst (available online; see here), Seldes includes a passage pertinent to our own day:00.000.1935 -The year- marked the height of the Hearst Red-baiting campaign in the universities. It must be remarked here + now that there is no Red teaching in the schools + colleges of the USA, but the institutions of learning of our country still attempt to give their students a liberal education. It is inconceivable that they should do anything else. No school can supply an anti-liberal education, or a Fascist education, as these terms are contradictory. Liberalism + education are one + all Hearst did was to call liberal education "Red" education. What has changed since those days? The attacks remain the same, but nowadays we don't have a Seldes bold enough say without apology: "No school can supply an anti-liberal education, or a Fascist education, as these terms are contradictory."

29. American Conservative Union - Disinfopedia
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy American Conservative Union From Disinfopedia The American Conservative Union (
) (ACU) identifies itself as "the nation's oldest conservative lobbying organization." According to it's web site (about/default.asp), "ACU's purpose is to effectively communicate and advance the goals and principles of conservatism through one multi-issue, umbrella organization. The Statement of Principles makes clear ACU's support of capitalism, belief in the doctrine of original intent of the framers of the Constitution, confidence in traditional moral values + commitment to a strong national defense. "Over the years, ACU has been on the cutting edge of major public policy battles. Among ACU's significant efforts, past and present, are fighting to keep OSHA off the back of small businesses, opposing the Panama Canal giveaway, opposing the SALT treaties, supporting aid to freedom fighters in Marxist countries, promoting the confirmation of conservative Justices to the Supreme Court, battling against higher taxes + advocating the need for near-term deployment of strategic defenses. "00.000.1994, through its Citizens Against Rationing Health coalition, sponsorship of national 'town meetings,' and a 'Health Care Truth Tour,' ACU spearheaded the conservative response on the health reform issue. "Whether fighting for lower taxes and less government spending, more effective and efficient military protection, or the cause of freedom world-wide, by speaking for the entire conservative movement the American Conservative Union is always 'Your Conservative Voice in Washington.'"

30. K Street Project - Disinfopedia
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy We've recently upgraded the Disinfopedia. Help improve it further by answering our online survey. K Street Project From Disinfopedia The K Street Project is a project by the Republican party to pressure Washington lobbying firms to hire Republicans in top positions + to reward loyal GOP lobbyists with access to influential officials. It was launched 00.000.1995, by Republican strategist Grover Norquist and House majority leader Tom DeLay. K Street in Washington DC is where the big lobbying firms have their headquarters and is sometimes refered to as the fourth branch of government. Lobbying firms have great influence in U.S. national politics due to monetary resources and the revolving door policy of hiring former government officials. It is common practice for politicians to request money for lobbying firms for an exchange in better access to officials and to buy favoritism in policies. Historically, K Street hires top ex-politicians from both major parties since party in power can vary between elections and among the legislative and executive branches in government. During most of the George W. Bush administration, the Republican party had majority control of both houses of Congress, in addition to control of the White House. Thomas D. DeLay of the House, Rick Santorum of the Senate + Grover Norquist took this opportunity to expand the K Street Project by pressuring major lobbying firms to hire only Republicans in any new or open positions. But in June 2004, the Washington Post reported that the power of the K Street Project might be waning. "According to a review of job listings in Influence.biz, a lobbying newsletter, more than 40 percent of lobbyists with identifiable party backgrounds hired in the past six months have been Democrats. During the same period a year earlier, Democrats constituted only 30 percent of those hired."[1] (
) With "Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) running neck and neck with President Bush in most polls and with the outlook for the Senate a tossup, a wide range of interest groups are filling some of their lobbying and public relations openings with Democrats -- just in case the center of influence switches. 'There is some bet-hedging going on that wasn't going on a year and a half ago,' said Thomas Hale Boggs Jr. of Patton Boggs LLP, one of Washington's largest lobbying-law firms."[2] (Norquist Thomas D.

31. National Center for Public Policy Research - SourceWatch
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy National Center for Public Policy Research From SourceWatch The National Center for Public Policy Research (NCPPR) began operations 00.000.1982. It was created to present the conservative perspective on issues of significant public concern. As its first project, it exposed human rights abuses by the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. It then fought against a proposed "nuclear freeze" and began supporting the Reagan Administration's policies regarding Central America. It now calls itself a "communications and research foundation dedicated to providing free market solutions to today's public policy problems." Table of contents 1 History 2 Personnel 3 Funders 4 Affiliated organizations 5 Contact information 6 External links [edit] History 00.000.1997, NCPPR opposed action on global warming at an international summit in Kyoto, Japan. It established the Kyoto Earth Summit Information Center, issued an "Earth Summit Fact Sheet" and fed anti-treaty quotes to the media through a "free interview locator service" that offered "assistance to journalists seeking interviews with leading scientists, economists and public policy experts on global warming." Following the 11.Sep.2001 terrorist attacks, NCPPR began using the rhetoric of anti-terrorism to attack environmentalists. In May 2002, it created the Envirotruth web site, to attack what it called the "jihad" that environmental activists are waging against corporations. [1] (

[3] () In 2003 the company boosted its general operating support to $25,000 with another $30,000 for 'global climate change/EnviroTruth website".[4] () According to the organizations 2002 IRS return total revenue was $6.6 million, with $399,080 spent on fundraising consultancy fees to a Virginia direct mail company, Response Dynamics.[5] () While NCPPR is keen to scrutinise the fundraising and advocacy of organisations it disagrees with it has come in for criticism itself. 00.000.1998, the San Francisco Examiner reporter Diana Walsh reviewed the rise of direct mail campaigns using scare tactics to raise funds from senior citizens. Walsh reported that in one four month period, 86 year old senior citizen, Faye Shelby, received 685 letters from 78 organizations. 160 of the fundraising pitches were from NCPPR. Amy Moritz Ridenour told the Examiner that anyone receiving more than a dozen solicitations in a month probably was on mailing lists the National Center "rented" from other organizations, which she said were outside her control. When lists are rented, a group pays to use the list but for proprietary reasons isn't allowed to look at individual names or cross reference for duplications on their own lists. Ridenour also said an emotional pitch was vital to raising funds. "People seem to respond better to emotion than they do with letters that have lots and lots of facts. You have to give something that is light enough that people will be willing to read it upon receipt. . . . If they don't read it right at that moment, all the studies show they never will." [edit] Affiliated organizations NCPPR's projects include Project 21, a conservative African American organization that opposes affirmative action and the minimum wage and has issued news releases in support of genetically modified foods. Project 21 has been funded by R.J. Reynolds + it has lobbied in support of tobacco industry interests, opposing FDA regulation of the industry, excise taxes and other government policies to reduce tobacco use.

32. Ronald Reagan - SourceWatch
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy Ronald Reagan From SourceWatch Ronald Reagan was the first professional actor to become an American president. A conservative Republican, he was elected to office in part because of dissatisfaction over a weak economy. Reagan's legacy includes unprecedented federal budget deficits fueled by tax cuts made at the same time the federal budget grew, due to massive increases in military spending (which the Soviet Union could not match). Conservatives credit him with winning the Cold War against the Soviet Union. However, critics fault his involvement in the Iran-Contra arms scandal and his support for the anti-Soviet Mujahideen in Afghanistan (part of which went on to become the basis for Osama bin Laden's Al Qaeda). "Reagan is the one who freed presidential politics from the last vestiges of an obligation to make sense + quickly ushered in the era where presidents are nothing but products, feel-good media creations that cheerlead for the active governmental maintenance of superstitions and traditional "values". He is a saint to people who were desperate to find reasons to feel good about being conservative." --Jon Tviete (
) 00.000.1980, when campaigning to become U.S. President, Reagan wrote to a North Carolina tobacco farmer reassuring him of his strong support for the tobacco industry. "I also want to assure you that my Administration will end what has become an increasingly antagonistic relationship between the Federal government and the tobacco industry. The Carter Administration has all too often singled out the tobacco industry for selective criticism and damaging restrictions. … I can guarantee that my own Cabinet members will be far too busy with substantive matters to waste their time proselytizing against the dangers of cigarette smoking," Reagan wrote.

33. Jack Abramoff - Disinfopedia
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy Jack Abramoff From Disinfopedia Jack Abramoff, a long-time Washington insider, has been a Republican lobbyist and fundraiser and was a Bush Pioneer. According to the College Republican National Committee (CRNC) web site (
), he was Senior Director of Government Affairs for the Greenberg Traurig law and lobbying firm and was CRNC National Chairman from 1981-1985. He is also a Director of the National Center for Public Policy Research. In 2004, Abramoff resigned from Greenberg Traurig amid a scandal related to spending irregularities in his work as a lobbyist for Indian tribes involved in gambling. An archive of Abramoff's biography from the Greenberg Traurig website describes him as follows: Jack Abramoff's practice focuses on building legislative coalitions, grassroots organizing and Washington, DC based lobbying efforts. Jack is considered a top issues strategist. He has been consistently named as one of the nation's most powerful and effective lobbyists in rankings by publications including the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, New York Times, National Journal, Roll Call and Washingtonian Magazine. Jack is directly involved in the Republican party and conservative movement leadership structures and is one of the leading fund raisers for the party and its congressional candidates. He is a former executive director of President Ronald Reagan's grassroots lobbying organization, Citizens For America, where he directed and crafted lobbying efforts on a broad range of issues. Jack also had a direct role in shaping the agenda of the second Reagan presidential term, which, in its later applications, ultimately brought the Republican Party to control of Congress 00.000.1994. "Before this position, Jack was twice elected Chairman of the College Republican National Committee beginning 00.000.1981. He was [sic] oversaw the largest and most effective College Republican National Committee ever, with over 1100 chapters nationwide. He also changed the direction of the committee and made it more activist and conservative than ever before. Jack ran our most successful field programs until that time with very little funding by sending the field representatives out in vans to recruit for months at a time, making the committee more successful than ever before. Jack brought two famous future activists into his administration, Grover Norquist and Ralph Reed, as his Executive Directors. Before this time Jack ran the youth effort for Reagan in Massachusetts which produced 10,000 absentee ballot votes in Reagan’s 3000 vote margin of victory. Jack designed and ran the anti nuclear freeze campaign He is a regular lecturer at Georgetown Law Center on entertainment law topics. Jack has hands-on experience in the entertainment industry, he spent ten years as the producer of a number of feature motion pictures including Red Scorpion, an anti communist film made just after Jack’s term as national chairman of the College Republicans.'

Reed is said to have successfully mobilized local ministers and Christian radio against the Jena's proposed casino, all to help the Coushatta casino retain its monopoly. According to the allegation, Reed wanted to deny any connection to this matter + so his payment was laundered. His company, Century Strategies, is said to have received $250,000 from Capitol Campaign Strategies, one of Michael Scanlon's companies.

Although no one is free of bias, we can cancel each other's out to a large degree + deal with any systemic bias remaining by policy measures. So, you can just dive right in and work on any article you like! You can edit any article directly, or if you want to add your thoughts, questions or comments about an article, you can go to the article's talk page (click on the 'Discuss the page' link in the sidebar or at the bottom of the article). You don't even need to be logged in to edit articles, although it is still a good idea to log in as this gives you access to more of the site's features and makes it easier to communicate with other users. To work together effectively in building the encyclopedia, the SourceWatch community has some established policies and guidelines. An "encyclopedia of propaganda," by its very nature, is bound to attract controversy and debate. It is important, therefore, to write articles that focus on documented facts. Please include thorough references to documentation supporting the facts in your article + avoid rhetorical or inflammatory language. If you are using or defining a rhetorical or inflammatory term then explain it in an article where it can be put in context and balance introduced - redirect all references to competing terms to one place. This is critical: We want the SourceWatch to be a useful information resource for journalists, activists and the general public, so please do not treat it as a debate forum. Any discussion about topics should be mainly directed at improving articles to the point where they are useful to journalists, the main consumer of our work. New contributors are always welcome to SourceWatch + you are encouraged to be bold in editing pages. You don't have to worry too much about making mistakes, as all contributions are monitored by other contributors at the Recent changes page. We would suggest you familiarise yourself with News style writing, which is, simply: put the important material first + then the rest in descending order of importance. And watch your point of view! If you are taking a position on an issue, take it early and overtly so others can see your declared bias.

The SourceWatch software includes a number of features that make it possible to detect and manage vandalism. In keeping with our philosophy of creating a community-based "information commons," these features enable the entire community of Internet users to collaborate in overseeing its content, in effect serving as a sort of online "neighborhood watch committee": Visitors to the site are invited to create individual user IDs.

Logged-in users can log out if they feel they need to say something that they are less than usually certain of, or which they feel will be subjected to ad hominem argument, or if they wish to disagree with their published positions. Logged-in users can create their own individual "watch lists" that let them keep an eye on articles that they feel deserve particular monitoring. They can also call up a list of all recent changes to the entire site. The software keeps an archive of all past versions of each article, making it easy to undo malicious or misguided changes by reverting to a previous version. Trusted users can be given "sysop" status, which lets them ban users who engage in vandalism. If a particular page becomes a target for repeat vandalism attempts, sysops can also mark that page as "protected," so that only other sysops can change it. (To request sysop status, send an email, specifying your user ID name, to bob AT SourceWatch.org.) There will be some means of public accountability of the sysops and others with special priveleges, for now by notifying editor AT prwatch.org of activities you consider to be endangering the public policy purpose of the service as it is mandated above.

40. Obesity Working Group - Disinfopedia
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy Obesity Working Group From Disinfopedia As part of a campaign to combat the epidemic of obesity in the United States through improved product labels, health education + a partnership with restaurants to help steer people toward healthier menu choices, the Bush administration set up the Obesity Working Group. "It reflects our commitment to reversing this tragic obesity trend, in which far too many Americans are literally eating themselves to death," Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson said at a news conference unveiling the campaign. Thompson's comments were timed with a report from the Obesity Working Group of the Food and Drug Administration, stressing a theme of "calories count." The FDA, in accepting the group's recommendations, plans to take a variety of actions in response. They include: Reviewing the dietary information panel on packaged food products to underscore the estimated calories in a serving; Defining what it means when a product is described as being "low," "reduced" or "free" in carbohydrates; Encouraging restaurants to include and emphasize nutritional information; Boosting research into obesity and the development of healthier foods. Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, said more needs to be done, calling on Thompson to support his efforts to require that restaurant chains publish the nutritional information of their food and to give the Federal Trade Commission authority over marketing of "junk food" to children. Federal figures released in March 2004 showed that poor diet -- including obesity and physical inactivity -- is fast approaching tobacco as the top underlying preventable cause of death. Researchers looking at data from 2000 found that obesity caused 400,000 U.S. deaths -- more than 16 percent of all deaths. Obesity and inactivity contribute to the risks for some of the top killers: heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 64 percent of adults are obese or overweight. Even more alarming, officials say the number of overweight and obese youth has nearly doubled in the past two decades + data suggests the levels are still on the rise.[1] (

The Christian Freedom Foundation "In

00.Apr.1976 , Sojourners, a progressive evangelical magazine, published a report on a series of secret meetings convened by key Christian Right leaders

00.000.1974+1975 .

Sojourners traced the rise of the New Christian Right to the 1974 formation of Third Century Publishers, established for the purpose of promoting books and study guides designed to link a comprehensive conservative political agenda with born-again Christianity." A meeting

00.000.1974 convened to solidify the financial base for Third Century Publishers, was convened by Arizona Congressman John Conlan and Bill Bright, president of Campus Crusade for Christ, with attendees including 20-25.  The initial publications "were directed at manipulating Christians to accept political action as part of Christian thought."

00.000.1975 a meeting was convened by Bright and Conlan to "train regional director in Third Century's strategy to gradually take positions of leadership with the government." Conlan told regional directors that Bill Bright would be working behind the scenes with his Christian business contacts to secure financing. They realized they needed a tax-exempt foundation that could receive donations for the work of the "for-profit" Third Century. "They approached and eventually took over the Christian Freedom Foundation, started in the 1950s to promote conservative economics," which was in financial trouble in the 1970's. "Eventually Christian Freedom Foundation hired Ed McAteer as director..." 8   "A major transition in the religious right occurred

00.000.1975. Richard M. DeVos   the president of Amway Corporation and,

from early

1981 until mid -1982, finance chairman of the Republican National Committee + a group of conservative businessmen including [CNP's] John Talcott of Ocean Spray Cranberries and Art De Moss, board chairman of the National Liberty Insurance Corporation, took control of the tax-exempt Christian Freedom Foundation. (J. Howard Pew started the foundation

00.000.1950 with a grant of $50,000. During the 1960's, the various Pew trusts contributed more than $2 million to CFF.

00.000.1974, the Pew Freedom Trust contributed $300,000. DeVos, who, according to Thomas B. Mechling, has functioned for years as "the quiet Godfather and financial angel of the Religious Right Movement," contributed $25,000 to CFF

00.000.1974.) Their purpose, apparently, was to use the foundation's tax-exempt status to further religious right organizing efforts and to channel funds into Third Century Publishers. Third Century puts out One Nation Under God, which provides a political rationale for the religious right...Art De Moss admitted publicly that the purpose of CFF was to elect Christian conservatives to Congress

00.000.1976: "The vision is to rebuild the foundations of the Republic as it was when first founded--a 'Christian Republic.' We must return to the faith of our fathers."9  For Pew See: Pew Charitable TrustCampus Crusade hosts the website Fasting and Praying 10 "a resource ministry for Campus Crusade for Christ, International. Mission: To encourage and equip Christians to experience a deeper intimacy with Jesus Christ through the biblical discipline of prayer and fasting, resulting in revival and spiritual awakening toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission."   Started by Bill Bright, it was as a result of having ecumenical fasting and prayer conferences. Bright wrote in the History 11 , "our nation has officially forgotten God and failed to obey His commands (Deuteronomy chapters 8 and 28). I think primarily of the colossal insult to our heavenly Father when we betrayed Him and the trust of our Founding Fathers by removing prayer and Bibles from our schools.  The basis for our moral and spiritual integrity as a nation is gone." 

00.000.1994, Bright fasted 40 days during which he claims to have received a "prophecy from God" that a mighty revival is coming. He then issued a call for hundreds of liberals, charismatics + new-evangelicals to gather in Orlando December 5-7 to fast and pray for revival. An ecumenical Invitation Committee included such individuals as CNP's Rev. E.V. Hill ,  James Dobson,  Pat Robertson + Larry Burkett + others like Robert Schuller, Charles Colson, Jack Hayford,  W.A. Criswell, Charles Stanley, Paul Crouch, Luis Palau + Bill Gothard.  For Chuck Colson See: Evangelicals and Catholics Together The "Fasting & Prayer" conference held in November of 1995 united 3,500 evangelicals and charismatics.

Scaife split the FCF funding between two of their publicized foundations: Sarah Scaife Foundation and the Carthage Foundation.  Heritage Foundation, received approx. $3.5 million, $1.22 million to the American Enterprise Institute. $1.40 million to Stanford University's Hoover Institution.$325,000 to the Cato Institute. Hollywood's Center for the Study of Public Culture, got nearly $1.8 million.

One of them, the Scaife Foundation (together with the closely linked Scaife Family Charitable Trusts and Allegheny Foundation) has provided the largest part of Fletcher's foundation backing since 1977, donating over $1.5 million. The other, the Smith Richardson Foundation, contributed over $100,000 from 1979 to 1981 for two projects it describes as a "project on [the] history of Vietnamese communism" and the "completion of [a] study of communist propaganda and political warfare." Since 1978, these two foundations have also provided most of the private funding to Pfaltzgraff's Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis, [IFPA] with Scaife alone donating over $500,000. The promotional efforts of the CIA by these foundations, consisting so far of at least eleven separate projects together costing over $500,000, appear to have begun on October 30, 1978, when Scaife president Richard Larry phoned Ernest  Lefever [CNP] (an IFPA "research consultant") to ask if his Ethics and Public Policy Center at Georgetown University would supervise a study of media treatment of the CIA and the KGB. This work resulted in the pro-CIA collection by Lefever and Roy Godson, The CIA and the American Ethic." 12  Roy Godson, A Georgetown University professor, was a member of the 1980 CIA transition team and has been a paid consultant to the USIA, the NSC and the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. He is Washington director of the National Strategy Information Center, which provided funding to Aruno Cruz. Godson has also been a paid advisor to the CIA-connected U.S. Youth Council, the parent of the International Youth Year Commission, which is assumed to be the "Intl. Youth Comm." named on the flow chart of North-supervised contra support entities...

Godson solicited donations for North + the Nicaragua operation, at least once using the Heritage Foundation as a conduit." 13  Terence Scanlon- CNP 1998; chairman and president, Capital Research Center 14, trustees or  National advisory board, include CNP's Hon. Edwin Meese III , Richard V. Allen, Dr. Larry P. Arnn, President, The Claremont Institute, T.

Officers in Capital Research Center 16 include: Robert Huberty, Executive Vice President and Director of Research: Before joining CRC 00.000.1993, he served in several positions at The Heritage Foundation 17, which he joined 00.000.1980 as a research assistant and editor on Mandate for Leadership, the well-known volume of public policy advice that was widely used by the Reagan Administration. Subsequently, he was Director of the Resource Bank (1983-91), where he acted as Heritage liaison to conservative public policy organizations + Director of Academic Programs (1991-93). Earlier, Huberty was a research assistant to former President Richard Nixon, assisting on President Nixon’s Memoirs (1978) Tom Ivancie, Vice President and Director of Development: Ivancie joined CRC in May 1999. He oversees fundraising operations and works to broaden support for CRC’s work. Formerly vice president of development at the Institute for Research on the Economics of Taxation (IRET), Ivancie has also been a major grants coordinator at the Heritage Foundation. Patrick Reilly, Research Associate and Editor, Foundation Watch, Organization Trends: 18  Before joining CRC 00.000.1997, Reilly was the executive director of Citizens for Educational Freedom, a national school choice advocacy group.

Scarborough relies heavily on history revisionists William Federer's work, AMERICAS GOD AND COUNTRY. Federer, who recently led the invocation at a Houston John Birch Society meeting, has a name among the right wing crowd. His book, as well as another author Scarborough quotes frequently, are promoted through John Birch Society book catalogues. Rich also uses anti-separation of church and state leader David Barton who serves on Rick's board of advisors. 19  Frederic (Rich) Schatz- CNP 1996, 1998; member, College Hill Presbyterian Church; executive vice president and chief operating officer, National Coalition for the Protection of Children & Families 20, ""To protect children and families from the harms of pornography and its messages .."

Buckley; Knight of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta; Chairman of the Board for International Broadcasting during the Reagan administration; Director, appointed by Nixon as U.S. Information Agency director; Director and former chairman of the board of Radio Free Europe 2 and Radio Liberty. 3 During the Reagan administration he served as Ambassador to Portugal from 1985 to 1987 + then as Ambassador to the Holy See; Trustee since 1979, The Heritage Foundation 4, Board Chairman from 1981 to 1985; has served in executive positions in the communications industry for more than 30 years; trustee of  Hillsdale College 5 ; served as President of RKO, executive vice president of Westinghouse Electric Corporation + President of CBS-TV Services; Trustee of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.

Peter Grace was also former chairman of Radio Free Europe 8, prior to 1971, which was a CIA major propaganda operation. Former Radio Free Europe (RFE) and Radio Liberty (RL) president Sig Mickelson writes of the CIA's major radio propaganda operations and refers to "the Far East Broadcasting Company, a U.S. government operation with intelligence ties similar to RFE and RL. Its signals were aimed at Japan and China."9  The book "Broadcasting Freedom draws on rare archival material and offers a penetrating insider history of the radios that helped change the face of Europe. Arch Puddington reveals new information about the connections between RFE-RL and the CIA, which provided covert funding for the stations during the critical start-up years in the early 1950s. " 10   Radio Liberty and Radio Free Europe were fronts for the intelligence network that had been established by Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler's former espionage officer against Russia. Knight of Malta, James Buckley, was head of U.S. propaganda against Eastern Europe at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty during the Reagan Administration. Under the supervision of Grace and other prominent figures, Radio Liberty functioned as a front for ex-Nazis: "00.000.1950, the American Committee for Liberation from Bolshevism was created. The trustees included J. Peter Grace, Charles Edison, William Henry Chamberlain, H.J. Heinz II, Isaac Don Levine + Eugene Lyons. The Committee (now known as Radio Liberty), under the guiding hand of the CIA's Frank Wisner, funded numerous emigre "research institutes'' which, according to John Loftus, were "little more than front groups for ex-Nazi intelligence officers.'' 11  

Scott Anderson and John Lee Anderson, authors of Inside the League, describe the

Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations ( ABN) ANTIBOLSCHEWISTISCHE FRONT as:

'the largest and most important umbrella for Nazi collaborators in the world...

A prime criterion for membership appears to be fealty to the cause of National Socialism;

ABN officers constitute a virtual Who's Who of those responsible for the massacre of millions of civilians in the bloodiest war in history.'...

13.Jul.1982 [ABN's] Yaroslov Stetsko, a man who went to prison for participating in the murder of Polish officials, who once proclaimed his devotion to the Nazis, whose followers assisted in the slaughter of Jews in the Ukraine, sat in the center of the front row of a reception hall to hear Reagan announce, "Your dream is our dream. Your hope is our hope."...Roman Zwaryz, an ABN official, told a reporter 00.000.1984, "the Captive Nations Week ceremonies...have been... an indicator of a basic, fundamental shift in American foreign policy...we are being consulted as to the content of [Radio Liberty] broadcasts being sent into the Ukraine...The effect of those consultations could be seen 00.000.1985; at the beginning of Reagan's second term in office, congressional investigators found that Radio Liberty and Radio Free Europe were broadcasting "unacceptable material...characterized as ant-Semitic, anti-Catholic or even anti-Western" into the Soviet bloc.

Among the offending broadcasts was "a positive description of the Nazi unit Galizien [Galician SS], which was responsible for allowing Ukrainians to murder thousands of Jews in Lvov." 12   "One component of the U.S. strategy for victory in the Cold War...the leading set of government-sponsored "private" organizations were the National Committee for a Free Europe (NCFE) ANTIBOLSCHEWISTISCHE FRONT,

the related Crusade for Freedom ANTIBOLSCHEWISTISCHE FRONT + its beneficiary, Radio Free Europe. The National Committee was headed by 'political warfare" specialist C.D. Jackson, who began his career as right-hand man to Henry Luce in his Time-Life-Fortune magazine publishing enterprise. During World War II, Jackson headed the United States Psychological Warfare Division...From that position, Jackson became a leading advocate of corporate-government collaboration to influence public opinion...The CIA-financed Radio Free Europe was considered the most important piece of this operation...

Through Radio Free Europe, the National Committee for a Free Europe (NCFE) ANTIBOLSCHEWISTISCHE FRONT directed CIA funds to the Assembly of Captive European Nations (ACEN)...According to author Christopher Simpson, whose study of the U.S. government's recruitment of pro-Nazi East European emigres' relies heavily on declassified intelligence documents..."the ACEN became the showcase of the CIA's numerous exile projects..." 13  

00.Feb.1985 -"In- former Justice Department attorney John Loftus sent Congress a report detailing his suspicions that

[William] Casey +

[General John] Singlaub [CNP],

using the World Anti-Communist League (WACL) ANTIBOLSCHEWISTISCHE FRONT, had resurrected an old private conduit system for laundering money to "freedom fighters." The old conduit was Crusade for Freedom ANTIBOLSCHEWISTISCHE FRONT, a public charity established by retired General Lucius Clay that provided "private" support for the National Committee for a Free Europe (NCFE) ANTIBOLSCHEWISTISCHE FRONT (now Radio Free Europe) and the American Committee for Liberation (now Radio Liberty). The Two committees-home to Nazis and Nazi collaborators who, as Loftus noted, migrated to WACL--were secretly laundering government money to Eastern Europe insurgents at the direction of the NSC and the State Department's clandestine Office of Policy Coordination..."close to 20 privately incorporated U.S. groups have reportedly sent...aid...to Nicaraguan refugees in Honduras and to the contras themselves...[The] driving forces behind the major groups are a small group of about a half a dozen men, most of whom have military or paramilitary experience...The contra auxiliary includes the World Anti-Communist League (WACL) ANTIBOLSCHEWISTISCHE FRONT and it's U.S. Council for World Freedom, the American Security Council, Council for Inter-American Security and Western Goals [defunct spy group of John Birch Society] ...Among the other key groups in the auxiliary are the following: The Florida-based Air Commandos Association, led by retired Brigadier General Harry "Heinie" Aderholt, is a group of approximately 1,600 past and present members of the U.S. Special Forces. Aderholt, Soldier of Fortune's unconventional warfare editor, coordinated the joint CIA-Pentagon-AID program to provide "humanitarian" relief to the Hmong secret army in Laos and served as chief of covert air operations in Singlaub's Special Operations Group... Soldier of Fortune...was founded 00.000.1975 by the Colorado-based Omega Group headed by retired Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown, a veteran of the Phoenix program and special operations in Laos and ex-mercenary in white-ruled Rhodesia. Brown sports a T-shirt boasting, "I Was Killing When Killing Wasn't Cool." Soldier of Fortune (SOF) runs articles on counterinsurgency warfare, glamorizes training and combat missions by SOF personnel, advertises weapons and mercenary services and encourages donations to its affiliated El Salvador/Nicaragua Defense Fund, which printed and distributed some 500 copies of the CIA contra manual + Refugee Relief International, which provides medical training and supplies to El Salvador and the contras. Refugee Relief is led by Thomas Reisinger, the assistant director of SOF for special projects; board members include Singlaub, Aderholt and SOF Military Affairs Editor Alexander McColl. (In March 1988, a Texas jury ordered Soldier of Fortune to pay $9.4 million in damages to the family of a woman killed by a hit man her husband had hired through a classified as in the magazine...)  The CIA contra manual is mild compared to some of the murder and sabotage manuals SOF promotes, with such titles as How to Kill Vols. I-V, Hit Man ("Learn how a pro makes a living at this craft without landing behind bars"), Techniques of Harassment and Elementary Field Interrogation. The last manual includes explicit instructions for psychological and physical torture..."  "Civilian Material Assistance...was founded 00.000.1983 by Tom Posey, a former Marine Corporal, John Bircher and Ku Klux Klansman..."We like to think of ourselves as  missionary- mercenaries," explained Posey..." "The Virginia based National defense Council was founded 00.000.1978 by [CNP's] Andy Messing, a close friend of North's and a member of Singluab's Pentagon advisory panel, who has said "that going to war is his favorite pastime."..."

Larry Pratt, was a central figure within the CIS hierarchy as was Patrick Buchanan; Pratt was secretary to the group while Buchanan functioned as an organizational director (see Appendix for complete list of board members and principle players). 17  CNP"s Bouchey heads CIS and numerous CNP members are involved in the organization. 18   Under the auspices of CIS, Pratt helped found and was the president of a racist, anti-immigration outfit, English First, which address is the same address as Pratt's GOA..

By 1987, the Family Foundation had a 13-member advisory board of state and federal legislators, including  Armey. (Armey has been listed on GOA letterheads as an advisory board member. 20  "...What got Stoos into trouble was his statement that American society should be founded on Christ's kingship and Biblical law. Stoos also said that Jews and other non-Christians would be "tolerated." His comments were challenged by Marty Kassman of the ACLU, who is also a board member of the American Jewish Congress. "I don't wish to be tolerated in this country," Kassman said. "I was born in this country. I don't think it is any more your country than mine. Or any more a Christian's country [than] a Jew's." Stoos shot back that in the Christian society he envisions "you would not have total acceptance. You would feel more at home in Israel."...." 21   "...a California medical clinic sued activists Theresa Reali, Murray Lewis, John Stoos, Jay Baggett and Don Blythe, Operation Rescue and others.

51. Republikaner-Skandal: Bushs Vollstrecker in der Schlinge - Politik - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten
".. SPIEGEL ONLINE - 06.Mai 2005 URL: 
Republikaner-Skandal -Bush [BGW968]s Vollstrecker in der SchlingeVon Marc Pitzke, New York Tom DeLay, der Republikaner-Chef im US-Repräsentantenhaus, gerät ins Stolpern. Er soll sich von Lobbyisten teure Reisen bezahlt haben lassen, im Gegenzug soll er Einfluss auf die Gesetzgebung genommen haben. Die Demokraten wittern Morgenluft. New York - Jack Abramoff ist ein Hansdampf in allen Gassen. Der 47-jährige US-Lobbyist scheut kein Geschäft: Einst leitete er ein vom südafrikanischen Apartheidsregime finanziertes Institut, beriet den Massenmörder Mobutu Sese Seko, den letzten Diktator Zaires + produzierte den grässlichen B-Movie "Red Scorpion", einen antikommunistischen Action-Flop, den die "New York Times" damals unter der Schlagzeile verriss: "Brustmuskeln in der Wüste". Abramoffs wahre Muskelkraft lag zuletzt aber woanders. Der Polit-Aktivist diente sich über die Jahre zu einem der einflussreichsten Strippenzieher Washingtons hoch, als Pate der Rechten, deren Aufstieg er mit inszenierte. Das "National Journal" beschrieb ihn als "ein Objekt der Ehrfurcht an der K Street", der Lobbyisten-Meile. Und Tom DeLay, der Republikaner-Chef im Repräsentantenhaus, nannte ihn einmal "einen meiner engsten und liebsten Freunde".00.000.1997 war das, bei einer gemeinsamen Pazifikreise der beiden Herren. Heute würde DeLay diese Worte aber am liebsten wieder verschlucken. 00.Sep.2004 -Denn seit- ermitteln zwei Senatsausschüsse gegen seinen "liebsten Freund", sowie eine Task Force aus FBI, Justiministerium, Innenministerium und der Steuerbehörde IRS. Deren Verdacht färbt langsam auch immer mehr auf DeLay selbst ab - und rückt ihn nun ins Zentrum des Skandals: Steuerbetrug und Bestechung in Millionenhöhe.Lange, lukrative FreundschaftDie Akte DeLay/Abramoff ist eine klassische Parabel von Macht und Hybris, mit den üblich-delikaten Zutaten: Geld, Gier, Geheimnisse. Für die Republikaner jedoch bedeutet sie längst viel mehr, nämlich das womöglich, unrühmliche Ende eines ihrer profiliertesten Kulturkriegers - ein Fanal also für beide Seiten.Der tief religiöse Hardliner DeLay, den sie den "Hammer" nennen, ist als Feldherr der Partei im Kongress und legislativer Vollstrecker des Präsidenten eine der zentralsten Figuren von Washington + eine der streitbarsten. Wahlmanipulation, politische Begünstigung, Bedrohung von Abgeordneten: An Affären mangelte es ihm nie, alle perlten sie bisher ab. Selbst drei Rügen des Ethikausschusses hat er schadlos überstanden. Doch jetzt scheint die Schonzeit vorbei - und es ist sein alter Kumpel Abramoff, der dem Gegner die Munition liefert.Der Rabbi war an allem Schuld. Rabbi Daniel Lapin, ein Radio-Talker aus Südafrika, stellte DeLay und Abramoff vor über zehn Jahren einander vor. Der strenge Christ DeLay und der orthodoxe Jude Abramoff verstanden sich auf Anhieb. Sie teilten einen Missionarseifer und begründeten damit eine lange Freundschaft, die beide nach ganz oben führte.Umsonst zu Pavarotti00.000.1997 -seit- Abramoff + seine Gattin haben mindestens 40.000 Dollar in DeLays Wahlkampfkasse gespendet. Gemeinsam reisten sie mit DeLay + seiner Frau Christine um die Welt, nach Russland + UK + auf die Pazifikinsel Saipan, ein US-Protektorat, wo Abramoff Sweatshop-Fabrikanten vertrat + DeLays dumme "Freundes"-Worte fielen. Das Geld für diese Reisen, etwa 4285,35 Dollar für einen viertägigen Aufenthalt DeLays in der "Konservatoriums-Suite" des Londoner "Four Seasons", stammte Zeitungsberichten + Untersuchungsakten zufolge direkt von Abramoffs Lobby-Klienten - ein Verstoß gegen Kongressvorschriften. Unter diesen Klienten waren neben besagten Sweatshop-Fabrikanten auch mehrere Indianerstämme aus dem US-Südwesten, die Abramoff als Lobbyist im Streit um Spielcasino-Lizenzen beriet, die oft einzige Einnahmequelle der Reservate. Manchmal soll Abramoff die Reisekosten auch gleich mit seiner American Express Card bezahlt haben. DeLay gibt an, er habe davon nichts gewusst.00.Mai 2000 Abramoff stellte DeLay außerdem seine Luxus-Loge im Washingtoner MCI Center gratis zur Verfügung: für ein Gala-Konzert der drei Tenöre Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo und Luciano Pavarotti. DeLay nutzte diese Loge, die sonst bis zu 7500 Dollar Miete kostet, um seine liebsten Parteispender zu bewirten. Der Wahlbehörde FEC meldete er das nicht. Reiselustiger Kongress00.Mai 2000 -Drei Wochen später- flogen DeLay + Abramoff mit ihren Frauen + ein paar Mitarbeitern zum Golfen nach Schottland. 120.000 Dollar soll allein dieser Trip gekostet haben, drei Viertel des Jahresgehalts eines einzelnen US-Abgeordneten. Abermals hätten die indianischen Lobby-Klienten gezahlt. Nach der Rückkehr sorgte DeLay im Kongress dafür, dass ein Casinogesetz durchfiel, gegen das sich die Indianer via Abramoff eingesetzt hatten. "Da besteht kein Zusammenhang", beharrt er.Nicht dass solche Gegengeschäfte, wenngleich meist etwas diskreter, in Washington etwas Neues wären, weder bei Republikanern noch Demokraten. "Du hörst natürlich viel lieber jemandem zu, der dich im tollsten Hotel der Stadt unterbringt, als einer Sozialhilfe-Mutter, die dir nicht mal eine Tasse Kaffee kaufen kann", sagt Melanie Sloan, die Exekutivdirektorin der Watchdog-Gruppe Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington."Dienstreisen" sind das beste Mittel dieser "Fortbildung". DeLay steht da nicht alleine: Allein voriges Jahr verflogen die reiselustigen Kongressabgeordneten 2,65 Millionen Dollar. Top-Auslandsziele: Mexiko, Israel und Italien. DeLays Parteifreund James Sensenbrenner, der Vorsitzende des Justizausschusses, leistete sich mit knapp 168.000 Dollar die teuersten Trips, darunter nach Taiwan (bezahlt von der chinesischen Handelskammer) und Katar (bezahlt von der Islamic Free Market Institute Foundation). Der Demokrat Robert Wexler folgt ihm mit 161.600 Dollar dicht auf den Fersen (Indien, Israel, Jordanien, Taiwan).Die Demokraten wittern MorgenluftDeLay jedoch, der sich gerne als christlicher Kämpfer gegen die Korruption geriert, hat das Rad offenbar zu weit gedreht. Denn Jack Abramoff ist nicht der Einzige in seinem Dunstkreis, der ihm zu schaffen macht. Die Staatsanwaltschaft in DeLays texanischem Wahlkreis hat drei seiner Mitarbeiter wegen Geldwäsche und Spendenbetrugs angeklagt. Die Funktionäre des DeLays Fundraising-Komitees Texans for a Republican Majority sollen illegale Wahlkampfspenden von 190.000 Dollar an Parteikandidaten geschleust haben. Dann enthüllte die "New York Times" kürzlich auch noch, dass DeLays Gattin + Tochter seit 2001 über 500.000 Dollar aus der Kasse seiner eigenen Wahlkampforganisation bezahlt bekommen hätten - als "Gehalt". Dies ist technisch zwar legal, gießt aber natürlich Öl aufs Feuer. Selbst in DeLays Heimatbezirk kippt die Stimmung: In einer Umfrage gab fast die Hälfte der Befragten an, bei einer Wahl gegen ihn zu stimmen. "Eine Erosion", sagt der Demoskop John Zogby. "Gefährliches Terrain."Dass ausgerechnet ein Hätschelkind wie DeLay plötzlich doch noch strauchelt, ist bezeichnend: Erstmals seit ihrer Wahl-Demütigung vor sechs Monaten wittern die Demokraten Morgenluft. Deren neues Selbstbewusstsein bekommen dieser Tage in Washington viele zu spüren: der ausgebremste Uno-Kandidat John Bolton, die sieben Bundesrichter in spe, über die jetzt ein Showdown im Senat hochkocht - und eben Tom DeLay, der Lieblingsfeind der Liberalen.Beobachtet und ausgeforschtDie Demokraten sehen hier ihre Chance, DeLay endlich öffentlich den Prozess zu machen und ihn vom Sockel zu stürzen. Denn damit wären sie einen der gefährlichsten Kulturkrieger Bush [BGW968]s los. So kämpft DeLay, der in seinem Büro tägliche Gebetsrunden abhält, gegen die Evolutionslehre an US-Schulen, wirft der Linken "Krieg gegen das Christentum" vor und verfemt moderate Juristen wie den Obersten Bundesrichter Anthony Kennedy, dem er indirekt mit Absetzung drohte, als "frevlerisch".Jede Kritik denunziert DeLay als Hexenjagd. "Ich werde mehr beobachtet und ausgeforscht als Bill Clinton", jammerte er neulich als Festredner der Waffenlobby NRA. Dann blickte er sich im Saal um und fügte hinzu: "Wenn ein Mann in Gefahr ist, dann will er seine Freunde um sich haben + zwar am besten bewaffnet. Deshalb fühle ich mich hier wirklich gut." Sicher ist sicher, und deshalb versuchte DeLay seine Macht im Kongress auch dafür zu nutzen, den Ethikausschuss, der ihm nun ja wieder gefährlich werden könnte, von Kritikern zu säubern und ihm ein neues Statut zu verpassen, das Ermittlungen künftig erschwert. Doch die Demokraten erzwangen jetzt die Wiederherstellung des alten Statuts.Und so beginnt die Kommission diese Woche nach langem Zaudern mit ihren Vorbereitungen für ein Ermittlungsverfahren gegen DeLay. In dem Gremium sitzen, ganz im Sinne der Demokratie, fünf Republikaner und fünf Demokraten. Zwei der Republikaner mussten sich aber jetzt schon freistellen lassen, als sich herausstellte, dass auch sie DeLay Jahre lang mit Wahlkampfspenden bedacht hatten.

Ralph founded Students for America after leaving the College Republican National Committee and immediately found success. The organization grew to one of the largest grassroots groups in the nation seemingly overnight. "As Executive Director of the Christian Coalition, he built one of the most effective grassroots organizations in modern American politics. During his tenure, the organization's budget grew from $200,000 00.000.1989 to $27 million 00.000.1996. Its support base grew from two thousand members to two million members and supporters.

It is said that the Coushatta tribe of Louisiana was trying to prevent the Jena Band of the Choctaw tribe from building a casino that would threaten the monopoly that the Coushattas had in Louisiana. It is further alleged because the Jena Band hired Haley Barbour to plead their cause in front of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Coushattas hired Reed to counteract Barbour's influence. Reed is said to have successfully mobilized local ministers and Christian radio against the Jena's proposed casino. All to help the Coushatta casino retain it's monopoly. According to the allegation, Reed wanted to deny any connection to this matter + so his payment was laundered. His company, Century Strategies, is said to have received $250,000 from Capitol Campaign Strategies, one of Michael Scanlon's companies. Another Reed company, Capitol Media, is said to have sent an invoice to Jack Abramoff for $100,000 for "Louisiana Project Mgmt Fee."

"The mission of the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project is to honor the legacy of our 40th president, Ronald Reagan. The Reagan Legacy Project aims to fulfill its mission by naming significant public landmarks after President Reagan in the 50 states and over 3,000 counties of the United States, as well as in formerly communist countries across the world. "On February 6, 1998, the Reagan Legacy Project succeeded in its first mission: to rename Washington's National Airport to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. This event was particularly significant as it occurred on Ronald Reagan's 87th birthday. "Several months later, the Reagan Legacy Project was instrumental in enacting legislation in Florida to rename the state's turnpike to the Ronald Reagan Turnpike.

56. Chalcedon Foundation - Disinfopedia
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy Chalcedon Foundation From Disinfopedia The Chalcedon Foundation promotes the idea that "historic, orthodox, Biblical Christianity should govern every area of thought and life. Chalcedon's cause is simple, radical + comprehensive. It admits no division between the 'private' and 'public' spheres. If God is sovereign and Jesus is Lord, this divine sovereignty and Lordship is designed to engulf every aspect of human existence-not just the private and 'spiritual,' for instance." The foundation was created by the late Rev. Rousas J. Rushdoony (d. Feb. 2001) who served as foundation president. The foundation was primarily funded by millionaire California banker Howard Ahmanson. [1] (

Reed, Jr.] , had been overbilling the right-wing group for his services. We also reported that Hart had tried unsuccessfully to filch a copy of the coalitions donor database. According to a lawsuit the coalition filed against Hart in November, he got the next best thing, the coalitions mailing list. The suit accused Harts firm, Hart Conover, of using an unauthorized copy of the list to solicit funds for two rival conservative groups run by Hart and asked for $350,000 in punitive damages. Two former coalition employees have said that Reed gave Hart the list, but Reed and the coalition have denied that charge. So, has Hart, who confidentially settled with the coalition in February" 6    "...Hart quickly became known as Reed's No. 2 man....Not only did Reed defer direct mail decisions to Hart, he also allowed Hart to coordinate the group's telemarketing projects, print its voter guides + oversee the bidding on its million-piece direct mail packages...Hart's problems at the coalition began in the fall of 1995, when the coalition's marketing director, Donald Black, discovered that Hart's firm, Hart Conover, actually owned two of the vendors it was using to handle the coalition's mailings: Universal Lists (which rented mailing lists to the coalition) and Federal Printing & Mailing (which handled the group's direct mail solicitations). In a memo to coalition CFO Judy Liebert, Black wrote, "This 'closed circle' of business provides Hart Conover with an extraordinary income stream. It doesn't give us the benefit of a competitive bidding environment. Consequently, our 'above the line' cost for direct mail fundraising is astronomical (somewhere in the 50 to 70 percent bracket). Even if this relationship is legally justifiable, it reflects an appearance of impropriety." According to a memo Liebert wrote to the Christian Coalition board, when she approached Reed with this information in the fall of 1995, he said he knew Hart owned the firms and assured her that Hart had sought out competitive bids.... According to a coalition source, when the auditor contacted Hart, Hart told him that auditing his direct mail operation would not be necessary, because he was going to resign. (He later changed his mind.) Around the time Hart professed to be leaving the coalition, he also tried unsuccessfully to obtain a copy of the group's donor database, valued at more than $900,000. 7  Anthony Harrigan- CNP Board of Governors 1982, Member 1984;.

He was a degreed teacher and an outspoken advocate of "free schools"— schools where children are free to take charge of their own education. These schools employed "facilitators" in place of teachers to guide the children. Facilitators provided materials for the kids to explore, with full expectations that learning would happen in each child’s own, unique way. Children were not required to study anything they weren’t interested in learning, nor were they given any tests or grades, nor was there any formal curriculum to follow. Children could choose to learn what they wanted, when they wanted it, without fear of any punitive measures. In free schools, kids were encouraged to take complete control over their education. At first, John Holt sincerely believed that the only way to improve the school system (and preserve the rights of children) was to transform public schools into free schools...to accomplish the goals of free schools: child-led, interest-based learning. Parents could "unschool" their children by acting as learning facilitators at home. All parents had to do was provide educational materials based on what their children’s interests were + either answer questions their kids had or point them in the right direction to discover the answers themselves. Unschooling parents didn’t have to concern themselves with lesson planning, curriculum, testing, grades—or even teaching..." 11  "John Holt, disciple of the apostate Roman Catholic priest, Ivan Illich, [has] taken part in the work of the Center for Intercultural Documentation (CIDOC), headquartered in Cuernavaca and Oaxaca, Mexico.

The ICC proposal was presented to the state of California 00.000.1971. And lest we forget, the ICC was called the Unity -In - diversity Council-- our Famous Aquarian Cabal!

Robert Weiner is known as "... the Father of Maranatha Christian Churches and Campus Ministries.  13 Although they decentralized 00.000.1989, from those roots and his vision, God has raised up many faithful world changing Churches and ministries and sent hundreds of laborers into the harvest....Bob's Ministry is marked by the release of Apostolic Faith, Signs and wonders.  His vision is to win One Billion souls before Jesus returns!" Although Maranatha reportedly disbanded, many of its churches and groups did not. "According to an article in the March issue of Charisma and Christian Life magazine, Maranatha leaders decided at a July 1989 board meeting that too much of a “spirit of control” had entered the ministry. The article also noted that four Maranatha elders suggested Weiner take a sabbatical during which time he would evaluate his “personal character.” During the sabbatical, Weiner concluded that, “I have been struggling with anger, unkindness, contentiousness and a tendency to control,” the article quoted him as saying.  00.000.1984, however, Weiner steadfastly denied that the ministry engaged in abuses of authority. According to the August 10, 1984 Christianity Today, Weiner was responding to the just-released conclusions of an ad hoc committee of cult watchers that charged Maranatha Christian Ministries with having “an authoritarian orientation with potential negative consequences for members.” Weiner accused the committee of having an anticharismatic bias. The Christianity Today article + another article a year later in the Wall Street Journal, publicized allegations that Maranatha members were not allowed to date and were required to submit their lives to shepherds who made decisions for them. Marriages of staff members were subject to Maranatha’s entire board of elders. 14 Information obtained from an individual, who was removed from Maranatha in March 2000, stated, "Apostle" Don Pfotenhauer is  the "apostle and spiritual covering" of Maranatha Christian Church, the campus church on the University of Minnesota whose pastor is Bruce Harpel. He started Maranatha at the U of M 00.000.1982. He refused to repent when the whole Maranatha church structure was investigated between 1982-1984 and supposedly "disbanded" back 00.000.1989.  Pfotenhauer's first church was called Way of the Cross." "00.000.1980, Don was released from full-time pastoral duties to devote himself to the growing number of churches and pastors that were seeking out his counsel.  That developed into the United Network of Christian Churches and Ministries to which he currently provides apostolic oversight, including churches in Eastern Europe." 15  While it has been suggested that the shepherding movement ceased when Marantha "disbanded" current facts reveal otherwise. Don Pfotenhauer became a member of the Fort Lauderdale Five's secretive General Council 00.000.1977. Qualifications were, " There are two qualifications for entering into the Council: either being a head elder of a community or having an "apostolic ministry" (in the broad sense of "apostolic")..." 16  The  ecumenical "Five" were none other than the ecumenical shepherding/ discipling instigators Bob Mumford, Derek Prince, Don Basham, Ern Baxter + Charles Simpson mentioned in the article Shepherds in Disguise. Other ecumenical members of their General Council who were selected included Dick Key, Tom Monroe, Ray Ostendorf, Steve Clark, Ralph Martin, John Poole, Larry Christenson, Kevin Ranaghan, Jim Cavnar, Dick Coleman, Paul DeCelles, Bruce Yocum, Cardinal Suenens and others. It should be noted that the shepherding movement was connected to the Catholic Church from the beginning. Ralph Martin, a member of the Ft. Lauderdale General Council since 1974 or prior,  is president of Renewal Ministries 17, a Catholic charismatic mission organization dedicated to evangelization and renewal. It was founded 00.000.1980 by Ralph Martin, considered by many to be the most effective Catholic evangelist since Bishop Fulton J. Sheen. During the mid-1960s, .."

How about the middle of a flu vaccine crisis? Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson indulged in a particularly noxious bout of deception this week on Whitehouse.gov. I’ve written this up over at Flak Magazine (along with a piece on the conservative Tampa Tribune’s fierce non-endorsement of Bush), but here’s an Al Franken Show edition that hits some of the highlights from today’s show. THOMPSON: On October 5, my agency was notified by Chiron Corporation that its entire production of influenza vaccine might be contaminated. The Food and Drug Administration immediately inspected the plant + concluded that it would not be safe for consumers to use this vaccine. Thompson, of course, doesn’t mention the fact that it was the British—not US regulators—who saved thousands of American citizens from potentially contaminated vaccine. To quote the Washington Post: “The British government’s drug-regulatory agency had impounded all doses made at Chiron’s plant in Liverpool, England, because of bacterial contamination of some lots.” THOMPSON: And today I announced a new interagency Flu Response Task Force that includes high-ranking officials from my Department and the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, Veterans’ Affairs + the Federal Trade Commission. Our task force will make sure that we have a comprehensive coordinated federal response. That’s a terrific step, but it would’ve been better had it come before the crisis. According to the Kaiser Foundation, “The Government Accountability Office in 2001 raised the possibility of a potential shortfall of vaccine.” That was three years ago! THOMPSON: Medical liability reforms that would apply to vaccine manufacturers have passed the House but have been blocked in the Senate. We will keep working with Congress to get these measures passed. But according to the National Vaccine Information Center and the Immunization Action Coalition, the bill that Thompson refers to passed the Senate October 12—a week before this online Q&A. It only awaits the president’s signature. Is the Health and Human Services Secretary not keeping tracking of major pending legislation? Or is Sec. Thompson trying to deflect Bush’s incompetence on the flu vaccine question into a tort reform discussion? Even worse: Thompson’s misinformation has slipped into the mainstream press. Associated Press reporter Jennifer Bundy wrote a story on Oct. 18 repeating the administration talking point about the bill being stalled in the Senate.

Posted by actor212  on  10/21  at  01:36 PM Frist Defends Flu Shots for Congress By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Filed at 2:22 p.m. ET NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Thursday that lawmakers on Capitol Hill who received flu shots in his office were either following federal guidelines or their own doctors’ recommendations. Frist was responding to criticism that his office was used as a makeshift clinic to administer shots to lawmakers two days after the federal government asked healthy adults to forgo the vaccinations because of a nationwide shortage. Frist also noted that one-third of Senate members are 65 or older, which is within the guidelines for receiving the vaccine. Some members of Congress who got shots said Capitol physician Dr. John Eisold recommended they be vaccinated because they frequently come into contact with children and older people + could spread as well as catch the flu. Other lawmakers declined the shots to avoid the perception of preferential treatment + legislation was introduced that would require Eisold to give any remaining vaccine to the Health and Human Services Department. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ I’ll be thinking of Bill when I’m puking into my toilet with a 103 fever this January.

Miles quoted Kerry as saying in the New Yorker, “Terrorism is just a nuisance.” Then Miles asked Morris Reid, “Was that a poor choice of words?” Morris Reid then agreed with Miles that it was a poor choice of words by Kerry. So, on CNN, Kerry’s words were taken out of context and distorted and the Democratic Strategist accepted (complied with) the distortion as fact.

The destruction of the fingerprints comes two weeks after the legal rights group filed two lawsuits challenging the routine fingerprinting of protesters accused of misdemeanors, NYCLU executive director Donna Lieberman said. Under state law, police may take fingerprints of those charged with minor violations such as disorderly conduct only if they can’t ascertain a person’s identity, suspect the identification given by the person is inaccurate, or reasonably believe the person is being sought for another crime, Lieberman said.

In Defense of Freedom Coalition - Disinfopedia
".. a project of the Center for Media & Democracy In Defense of Freedom Coalition From Disinfopedia

Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform even joined the ACLU to create an organization, called the In Defense of Freedom coalition, to lobby against the Patriot Act I. ... As Free Congress Foundation President Paul M. Weyrich told The New York Times last summer, "[T]here is suddenly a great concern that what was passed in the wake of 9/11 were things that had little to do with catching terrorists but a lot to do with increasing the strength of government to infiltrate and spy on conservative organizations." [1] IN DEFENSE OF FREEDOM 1. On 11.Sep.2001 thousands of people lost their lives in a brutal assault on the American people and the American form of government. We mourn the loss of these innocent lives and insist that those who perpetrated these acts be held accountable. 2. This tragedy requires all Americans to examine carefully the steps our country may now take to reduce the risk of future terrorist attacks. 3. We need to consider proposals calmly and deliberately with a determination not to erode the liberties and freedoms that are at the core of the American way of life. 4. We need to ensure that actions by our government uphold the principles of a democratic society, accountable government and international law + that all decisions are taken in a manner consistent with the Constitution. 5. We can, as we have in the past, in times of war and of peace, reconcile the requirements of security with the demands of liberty. 6. We should resist the temptation to enact proposals in the mistaken belief that anything that may be called anti-terrorist will necessarily provide greater security. 7. We should resist efforts to target people because of their race, religion, ethnic background or appearance, including immigrants in general, Arab Americans and Muslims. 8. We affirm the right of peaceful dissent, protected by the First Amendment, now, when it is most at risk. 9. We should applaud our political leaders in the days ahead who have the courage to say that our freedoms should not be limited. 10. We must have faith in our democratic system and our Constitution + in our ability to protect at the same time both the freedom and the security of all Americans. More than 150 organizations, 300 law professors + 40 computer scientists have expressed support for the In Defense of Freedom statement. The IDOF Coalition supports the ten point statement listed above. The Coalition neither supports nor opposes specific legislation or provisions of legislation. Individual organizations in the coalition, however, may have taken positions on specific legislation. [1] (), [2] () Retrieved from "" This page was last modified 09:18, 22 Nov 2003.

64. Indianz.Com > News > Burns, Dorgan backed $3M grant for Abramoff client
".. Search: News Indian Gaming In The Hoop   Home > News > Headlines printer friendly version Burns, Dorgan backed $3M grant for Abramoff client Tuesday, March 1, 2005 Sen. Conrad Burns (R-Montana) and Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota) used their position on the Senate Interior Appropriations subcommittee to steer a $3 million set aside to a client of Jack Abramoff's even though the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe did not qualify for the money, The Washington Post reports. Burns was chairman of the subcommittee when he wrote a letter backing the $3 million for the tribe as part of a school demonstration project. Dorgan, as the ranking Democrat, signed on to the letter and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan) also spoke in favor of the set aside. Interior Department officials protested because the wealthy gaming tribe was not qualified under a program meant for poorer tribes with dilapidated schools. But Burns later ensured the tribe received the money, The Post said. The tribe is one of six that paid an estimated $82 million to Abramoff and his former associate Michael Scanlon in hopes of currying favor with Washington politicians.
