On the group's board were Dobson, Robertson, Falwell and one Jack Abramoff. Lapin's organization, Toward Tradition, which administered the AACJ, received $25,000 from one of Abramoff's gambling industry clients in 2000; took $75,000 from Abramoff and his clients; and then, upon Abramoff's written instructions, hired the wife of Tony Rudy to the tune of $5,000 a month.

Founder and former chairman of  The International Freedom Foundation (IFF) which was recently exposed by senior South African military personnel as a cut-out of the South African military and Special Branch. IFF functioned as a propaganda arm for South African STRATCOM directed against the African National Congress and the trade union confederation. 3b

For STRATCOM> Stratcom's bogus news agency rings by Ann Eveleth , August 14, 1998   See: http://web.sn.apc.org/wmail/issues/980814/NEWS16.html  ;  See: A Small Circle of Friends. by Tom Burghardt Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive Rights (BACORR)> http://www.webcom.com/~pinknoiz/right/lpratt.html 

RE: STRATCOM  "...General Viljoen had personally ordered the attacks on so-called "African National Congress Targets" including the blow up of suspected anti-apartheid activists and critics. As revealed by former spy Craig Williamson from classified State Security Council documents, Viljoen was also responsible for Stratcom (Strategic Communications), a covert organization involved in frame-ups, political assassinations, bombings, torture, covert propaganda and "dirty tricks campaigns"...(Stefaans Brummer, "The Web of Stratcoms", Weekly Mail and Guardian. 24 February 1995)." 4

Copyright by Michel Chossudovsky, Ottawa, 1996.]

From the 2001 article The Height of Hypocrisy by Josey Ballenger:

"...In the late 1980s and early 1990s [CNP's] Dan Burton and [CNP's] Republican Senator Jesse Helms worked with the International Freedom Foundation, a Washington-based organization in part clandestinely funded by the South African military to prop up overseas support for apartheid. The goal of the anti-communist group was to gather intelligence on, and discredit, the then-banned African National Congress. Burton and Hatch voted against key 1986 legislation banning trade and investment with South Africa, even when most of their party moved across the floor to support it...It is the height of hypocrisy that Orrin Hatch or Dan Burton would be opposed to anyone breaking sanctions against South Africa," said Salih Booker, who was the Democratic professional staff member of the House foreign affairs subcommittee on Africa in the mid-1980s. He is now executive director of the Africa Policy Information Centre, a non-profit advocacy organization in Washington. Dan Burton called the freedom movement of the ANC a 'terrorist' organization and spent most of the time attacking their leadership, notably Nelson Mandela," Booker said, noting that Burton was the ranking Republican on the Africa subcommittee at the time. "He never had a word against the white supremacists who ruled; he never met with those fighting for freedom, unlike others on the committee, Republicans and Democrats alike...after many of his Republican peers decided to support US trade and investment sanctions against South Africa, Burton remained a stalwart against the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act of 1986. So did Hatch. That Bill " which became law by garnering a two-thirds majority to override president Ronald Reagan's veto " outlawed petroleum product exports and imports of South African coal, uranium, iron, steel, textiles, sugar and other agricultural products, and prohibited new investment in South Africa.

"The role of apartheid military intelligence in the International Freedom Foundation surfaced in 1995 when former South African spy Craig Williamson revealed that the former Pretoria regime spent up to $1,5-million a year until 1992 to underwrite "Operation Babushka", as the foundation was known.

"A member of the foundation's international board of directors disclosed that at least half of the foundation's money came from projects undertaken on behalf of South Africa's military intelligence, New York's Newsday reported in 1995 after a three-month investigation. And Colonel John Rolt, a South African army representative, confirmed that "the International Freedom Foundation was a former South African Defence Force project".

"Burton, Helms and other foundation participants, such as former Republican presidential candidate Alan Keyes, denied knowledge of the South African funding link. But Burton was an active participant. In 1987, for example, when Senator Edward Kennedy chaired a study of children in apartheid prisons, the foundation retaliated by sponsoring an investigation into the ANC's treatment of children, The Observer of London reported...

"The International Freedom Foundation was created in 1985 by Jack Abramoff, a conservative lobbyist who once represented the late Zairean dictator Mobutu Sese Seko. Abramoff and [CNP's ] Duncan Sellars, who served as the foundation's chair, were both Burton campaign contributors but denied knowing about the South African funding, according to media reports in 1995.

"Abramoff said the foundation had been funded by hundreds of contributors in the US, Europe and Israel. Apartheid South Africa's last president, FW de Klerk, cut off funding for covert "political" operations in 1992 and the foundation folded in 1994..."5

February 7, 2006 Update: On February 4, 2006, Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty to conspiracy and fraud in Florida. Prior to that, he had plead guilty to charges in Washington. In Florida, he "admitted counterfeiting a $23 million wire transfer to complete the $147 million purchase of SunCruz Casinos, a company that runs gambling cruises, in 2000". The Florida case has links to Abramoff's activities "as a prominent Washington lobbyist and to a guilty plea he entered a day earlier in Washington to fraud, conspiracy and tax-evasion charges." Abramoff is cooperating with prosecutors, "in what Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher described as a broad corruption investigation," and many politicians are distancing themselves from him. Abramoff had been a major fundraiser to President Bush's campaign, raising at least $100,000. Many politicians are turning money over to charities that is known to have come from Abramoff or his associations.

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign contributions, "Jack Abramoff, Indian tribes he represented and people connected to his SunCruz casino boat company gave a total of $4.4 million to more than 240 members of Congress and political committees from 1999 through 2005". [Source: USA Today.com Posted 1/4/2006 11:29 AM  Updated 1/4/2006 10:57 PM;  Abramoff pleads guilty to more charges; By Jim Drinkard and Andrea Stone, USA TODAY; http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2006-01-04-abramoff-florida_x.htm]

Michael Scanlon, his business partner, has also pleaded guilty to corruption charges.  James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Ralph Reed, Jerry Falwell, Tony Perkins, Gary Bauer, and other CNP and religious right leaders are being discussed in the press regarding their associations with Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay and whether they were privy to their respective activities.

Newport Beach, CA.; Ahmanson also served 23 years (retired 1995) on the board of the Chalcedon Institute 12 in Vallecito, California, which Newsweek (Feb. 2, 1981) accurately identified as the think tank of the Religious Right. The Chalcedon Institute, to which Ahmanson has contributed over a million dollars, was founded in 1965, perpetuates the Dominionist/Reconstructionist/Kingdom Now beliefs of founder Rev. Rousas John Rushdoony who was also a member of the CNP. Rushdoony, who died February 8, 2001, is known as the "father of Christian Reconstructionism," which is the misguided belief that Christians should have dominion over all earthly affairs and nations and the law would be according to Old Testament laws, which includes the death penalty for many infractions. 

The Rutherford Institute- 13 founded by CNP's John W. Whitehead in 1982. It is an international civil liberties legal and educational organization that defends persons who feel their constitutional rights have been violated, at no cost. Rushdoony's Ministry of Chalcedon claims in its brochures that "Chalcedon was instrumental in establishing the Rutherford Institute, the purpose of which is to aid lawyers in the defense of religious liberties"; and Rushdoony himself has been a director of the Institute. 14 

The Claremont Institute- SEE: Dr. Larry P. Arnn below.

Ahmanson's Fieldstead and Co., known for sponsoring seminars, scholarships and so on,  is a continual political contributor as indicated in the legal filings 15.

Mr. Robert Martin, General Manager of Fieldstead & Co. signed COR's 1986 Manifesto and has been on COR's Steering Committee. 16  

Dennis Peacocke's Coalition on Revival (COR) was co-founded and headed by Jay Grimstead. Jay Grimstead's COR Manifesto is the document which outlines COR's goals and objectives. The 135 Christian activists who signed the document in 1986 committed themselves to working for the realization of COR's goals "until the day we die." Those on the COR steering committee include other CNP members as well as recognized shepherding movement leaders such as Bob Mumford and Ern Baxter, as well as Jack Van Impe.

California Independent Business Political Action Committee started out as the Capitol Commonwealth Group which became the Allied Business PAC which in turn has been reborn as the California Independent Business PAC. It has helped to elect over one-fourth of the 120 members of the California legislature. During the 1992 election cycle, Allied Business PAC and members of CCG as individuals contributed more than $2 million to various candidates and ballot initiatives. Co-founders included Edward G. Atsinger III and largest backer Howard Ahmanson, Jr. ($1.32 million to the PAC) Sen. Robert Hurtt  (Container Supply Corp) and Roland and Lila Hinz.  Roland Hinz is owner of Daisy/HiTorque Publications, publishers of Dirt Bike and Motocross magazines. His wife, Lila, has served on the board of directors of Paul Weyrich's National Empowerment TV.

According to a November 26, 1995 article in The Los Angeles Times, California state Senator Rob Hurtt Jr. came under the influence of Dr. James Dobson in the early 80s. Hurtt, in turn, helped bring together the men who have built a formidable political machine by spending over $8,000,000 from their own pockets to change the face of California politics. All are members of the CNP. Millionaire Ron Unz, a computer software entrepreneur, joined Allied with a $75,000 contribution. Richard A. Riddle, a graduate of Bob Jones University, also joined the PAC, contributing $237,000 in '93 and '94. 17   Riddle is owner of I. W. Walker, a box manufacturing company and a partner in Richray Industries, an import-export company which does extensive business with South Korea.

 In 1987, Hurt, Ahmanson, and CNP member H. Preston Hawkins, a developer, founded the Capitol Resource Institute (CRI) in Sacramento as a public-policy organization affiliated with Focus on the Family (FOF). Since CRI's founding, Hurt and Ahmanson have provided over 75% of the annual budget.

The Fieldstead Institute helped to fund the book "Restorers of Hope: Reaching the Poor in Your Community with Church-based Ministries That Work" which is authored by Amy L. Sherman. The book is considered a major national study of the "Charitable Choice" provisions of the 1996 welfare reform law (the report, The Growing Impact of Charitable Choice, is available from the Center for Public Justice 18 in Annapolis, MD.). Welfare Reform's Charitable Choice allows state and federal funding to flow into churches. 

In a radio interview Sherman said that Christians were involved in writing the Charitable Choices section of the Welfare legislation. The Christians she meant were the Family Research Council, the Heritage Foundation and the Center for Public Justice. Pastor Sherman  also recently became, Senior Fellow at the Indianapolis-based Welfare Policy Center of the futurist Hudson Institute, where she will study faith-based approaches to welfare reform, and Urban Ministries Advisor at Trinity Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Charlottesville, Virginia. In 1996, Dr. Sherman was named by Christianity Today as one of the "Top 50 Evangelical Leaders Under Forty."  

The Heritage Foundation 19.  officially, "is a research and educational institute - a think tank - whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense." which was founded by Paul Weyrich with funding by the Coors Family. [ Holland (Holly) Coors   Jeffrey Coors   Joseph Coors ] Heritage Foundation set up the Center for Education Reform which co-ordinates charter school momentum in the states.

Pastor Amy Sherman is also Adjunct Fellow at  the Rockefeller-funded  Manhattan Institute for Policy Research 20  which has colleagues with both Brookings Institution 21 and Hudson Institute. 22

Dr. Sherman is a colleague in Manhattan Institute' Center for Civic Innovation CCI 23. which is involved in Education and Welfare Reform. 

She is also involved in the Jeremiah Project 24 (Faith Based Initiatives-The Jeremiah Project (TJP) is a new effort to study, promote and replicate the work inner-city ministers are doing in reducing youth violence and restoring civil society to urban communities across America.) 

She is also a Member of The Interfaith Council for Environmental Stewardship (ICES) or Signer of Cornwall Declaration  > See: ICES

According to John Coleman, Brookings is an extension of  The Committee of 300's Tavistock Institution. Brookings, "Dedicates its work to what it calls a "national agenda." Wrote President Hoover's program, President Roosevelt's "New Deal," the Kennedy Administration's "New Frontiers" program (deviation from it cost John F. Kennedy his life), and President Johnson's "Great Society." Brookings has been telling the United States Government how to conduct its affairs for the past 70 years and is still doing so on behalf of the Committee of 300." According to Coleman, Tavistock deals in mind control and manipulation.

Council for Inter-American Security,  was an ardent supporter of the Nicaraguan contras with an apparent main goal,  the defeat of communism in Latin America.  It had close affiliations with  the John Birch Society, the World Anti-Communist League, Alpha66/Brigade 2506 anti-Castro terrorist groups,  The LaRouche Organization, the Unification Movement of South Korea (Moonies),  various Christian fundamentalist and conservative Catholic groups. In 1980, it published a report known as the Santa Fe Document,  which  became a major part of the blue print and rationale for the Reagan Administration’s Latin American policy.  In addition providing policy rational, the Council provided people to fill policy making positions of the Reagan Administration The Council worked  to improve reputation of Salvadoran death squad leader Roberto D’Aubuisson and worked closely with the FBI on covert operations against "leftist" clergy and left-leaning organizations in the United States. It also worked closely with the Salvadoran police and military in tracking and monitoring Salvadorian refugees who had fled to the U.S. 38. 

The Sante Fe Document recommended various Proposals including,  Proposal 3,  "U.S. foreign policy must begin to counter (not react against) liberation theology as it is utilized in Latin America by the ‘liberation theology’ clergy."  "The role of the church in Latin America is vital to the concept of political freedom. Unfortunately, Marxist-Leninist forces have utilized the church as a political weapon against private property and productive capitalism by infiltrating the religious community with ideas that are less Christian than Communist."  Proposal 4: "The United States must reject the mistaken assumption that one can easily locate and impose U.S. style democratic alternatives to authoritarian governments…. This belief has induced the Carter Administration to participate actively in the toppling of non-Communist authoritarians while remaining passive in the face of Communist expansion"  Proposal 5: "Human rights, which is a culturally and politically relative concept that the present [Carter] administration has used for intervention for political change in countries of this hemisphere, adversely affecting the peace, stability and security of the region, must be abandoned and replaced by a non-interventionist policy of political and ethical realism." 39 

Members of the Council included: Lewis Tambs (Sante Fe’s principle editor),  appointed as ambassador to Columbia and then Costa Rica (which was the launch point for Contra attacks into Nicaragua);  Robert Fontaine, appointed NSC advisor on Latin Amer. Affairs,  Editor for Washington Times (Mooney paper); retired Lt. Gen. Gordon Sumner,  appointed special assistant to the Secretary of State for Latin American Affairs;  Retired US Army Gen. John Singlaub, member of OSS and CIA, Implemented the CIA’s Phoenix Operation, responsible for the murder of ~40,000 Vietnamese and imprisonment of hundreds of thousands of others, fired by Carter when he openly disagreed with Carter’s plan to withdraw troops from Korea;  Anthony Bouscaren, Board member of American-Chilean Council, Board member of WACL, Worked for Wycliffe, Drapers Pioneer Fund. 40  

In l988, the Committee of Santa Fe released a new document, Santa Fe II, with recommendations for the next administration. Although it is somewhat less ideological and more pragmatic than the original "Santa Fe Document," this second publication unlikely to have the impact of the first simply due to the changing political tenor of the country and the absence from the White House of a truly ideological president. 41   Footnotes 37-41

The WSJ article states that Heritage Foundation promotes and actually writes pro-Korean legislation. Heritage  raised an endowment for the Center of "more than $13 million over the next decade and a half, almost all of it from South Korean, Taiwanese, and other Asian foundations and corporations." In the early 1980s Heritage received $2.2 million covertly from the Korean CIA, according to the November 1988 testimony of former South Korean intelligence director Chang S. Tong. And the same year a staff report from the House Committee on Foreign Affairs stated that Oliver North used Heritage as a cutout for some of his contra fundraising." 48

Institute for Religious Research 53.   is a non-denominational, Christian non-profit foundation devoted to the study of religious claims in light of history, science, and the Bible.

In 1992, Chuck Missler was predicting the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38. Gog and Magog (Arabs and Kazakistan Russians) were to invade Israel because the missiles stored in Kazakistan only had a shelf life of 6 years. Missler and CNP's John Ankerberg sold two videos about their predictions of the 'Y2K crisis'. At the top of the advertisement for the videos, was the statement, "The Coming Y2K Computer Crisis Will threaten Anyone Whose Faith is Not in God!"

The two videos they were selling at that time were: What to Do When the Chips Are Down -- Missler and,  Will America Survive the Y2K Crisis? -- Missler and Ankerberg.  Missler is described as a " spiritual watchman, exposing deception in these end times and monitoring the global movement and its implications for Christians worldwide."

Ankerberg is described as "one of the Christian community's greatest apologists." "The John Ankerberg Show" reaches millions of homes, exposing cults, false messengers, misinformation and other topics that are of great concern to the Body of Christ." 

God is quite specific about people making prophetic claims and claiming to do so as someone belonging to Him and getting the 'prophecy' from Him.

Jeremiah 23: 29 -32

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? 30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour. 31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith. 32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.

We have God's view about false prophets. And He always seems to be very clear about pointing them out.

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Matthew 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

For a full treatment on the un-Biblical past time of date setting, including that of the return of Christ, please see, Date Setting Hypocrisy. Invariably, false date setting brings shame upon our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as non-Christians mock and laugh at another failed false prophecy. Unfortunately, they believe those doing the false prophecies in many, to most, cases belong to Jesus Christ, when in fact, they do not.   Footnotes 49-53

"...It was all very reminiscent of Muldergate, the scandal that ensued when it was discovered that South Africa's Department of Information (DOI) authorized expenditures of $73 million for more than 160 secret projects to buy politicians and media favorable to the apartheid state. [National Reporter, Winter 1985] Rev. Moon's Washington Times was one of the beneficiaries - approximately $4.5 million was funneled to Moon's overseas enterprises. The South African government bought substantial interest in a chain of more than sixty newspapers in the U.S.; Saturday Evening Post publisher Beurt SerVaas [CNP] accepted gifts and business deals from Pretoria; and more than two hundred U.S. journalists toured South Africa on all-expense paid trips....Ronn Haus [president of California based Family Christian Broadcasting Network] and Dennis Peacocke were among 500 U.S. Christian leaders invited by Secretary of State George Schultz to a special State Department briefing on South Africa June 2, 1986...The current Christian Right media treatment of South Africa was organized at the February 1986 convention of the National Religious Broadcasters. At that time the executive committee of the NRB agreed to help a group of white South African pastors form a South African NRB and to support their efforts by touring the country and returning with "the true story." In March Ben Kinchlow, [Pat] Dr. "M.G." Pat Robertson's co-host on the "700 Club," went to South Africa. In a live satellite feed from South Africa, Kinchlow testified that with the exception of a "whites only" sign at a public beach, he personally experienced no racism there....In May NRB executive director Ben Armstrong toured South Africa with John Gimenez and his Rock Christian Network film crew, Dick Bott, [CNP> Richard Bott], owner of a string of Christian radio stations...the tour was paid for not by U.S. broadcasters but by an "anonymous group of South African businessmen." Armstrong confirmed this and agreed that some of the money may have come from the South African government.... " 58

Dennis Peacocke's Coalition on Revival (COR) was co-founded and headed by Jay Grimstead. Peacocke was a disciple of Bob Mumford and his shepherding movement.; Jay Grimstead's COR Manifesto is the document which outlines COR's goals and objectives. The 135 Christian activists who signed the document in 1986 committed themselves to working for the realization of COR's goals "until the day we die." Those on the COR steering committee include other CNP members as well as recognized shepherding movement leaders such as Bob Mumford and Ern Baxter, as well as Jack Van Impe.

The Mont Pelerin Society 67- The Mont Pelerin Society was founded in 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, and 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 68.  [meaning from Hitler's policies in the 1920's and 1930's]. Soon after it was founded in 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" Von Hayek, the founder, wrote The Road to Serfdom in London in 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 in 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, and 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, and elitist Mont Pelerin Society in 1947...From the beginning the Mont Pelerin Society worked hand-in-hand with the Pan European Union..." 43b  See: Footnotes Footnotes 62-68

All are members of the CNP. Millionaire Ron Unz, a computer software entrepreneur, joined Allied with a $75,000 contribution. Richard A.
