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

In 1951, Nelson Bunker Hunt, heir of the Hunt Oil Company fortune, and Wallace Johnson, founder of Holiday Inns, worked with and funded Campus Crusade for Christ with $15.5 million. In 1967, Bright formed Christian World Liberation Front (CWLF) as a front for Campus Crusade, which split off under the leadership of Jack Sparks and Pat Matrisciana . Bunker Hunt arranged a retreat for more than 500 millionaires who pledged $20 to Campus Crusade. 6  

Member of Advisory Committee of The Religious Heritage Freedom Foundation RHA > See: Dr. Theodore Baehr, and a leading participant at the founding of the STEP Program and Foundation. "Strategies to Eliminate Poverty" (STEP) was ...formed to alleviate poverty through private sector funding and volunteerism...!. According to the Christian Inquirer, Nelson Bunker Hunt "kicked off" the STEP Program in November of 1981, with a $1 million contribution. Those attending the April 1982 meeting in Dallas, besides the previously mentioned Dr. William R. Bright, Murchison, and Hunt, were: Dallas Cowboy Coach Tom Landry, Television evangelists Jim Baker, [and CNP's]  James Robison and  Pat Robertson, (Holly) Coors;  Dallas businesswoman [Late] Mary C. Crowley, and the Rev. E.V. Hill  - keynote speaker at the meeting and president of STEP. 7 

The Christian Freedom Foundation "In April 1976, Sojourners, a progressive evangelical magazine, published a report on a series of secret meetings convened by key Christian Right leaders in 1974 and 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 in 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." In 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 in 1975. Richard M. DeVos   the president of Amway Corporation and, from early 1981until mid -1982, finance chairman of the Republican National Committee, and 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 in 1950 with a grant of $50,000. During the 1960's, the various Pew trusts contributed more than $2 million to CFF. In 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 in 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 in 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 Trust

Campus 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." 

In 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, and 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, and Larry Burkett, and others like Robert Schuller, Charles Colson, Jack Hayford,  W.A. Criswell, Charles Stanley, Paul Crouch, Luis Palau, and 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. The Invitation/Host Committee for this event included many of those from 1994, plus CNP's Tim LaHaye and Beverly LaHaye, and others like Dick Eastman, Chuck Smith, Bill McCartney, Shirley Dobson, Paul Cedar [LCJE], Ted Engstrom (World Vision), Joseph Stowell (Moody), and Joseph Aldrich (Multnomah). The 1996 conference increased it's committee to include Max Lucado , Henry Blackaby, Loren Cunningham (YWAM), Greg Laurie, Dennis Rainey, Randy Phillips (Promise Keepers), Josh McDowell, CNP's Dr. D. James Kennedy, Howard Hendricks, and Neil Anderson. 12

Jesus clearly rebuked public displays of prayer and fasting and then proceeded to teach how to pray. Matthew 6:5-7 "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking."  

While fasting is a Biblical concept, group-fasting is not. Fasting is a private activity between the believer and the Lord. It is not to be "advertised."  Matthew 6: 16-18 - Moreover, when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head and wash thy face; that thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly." Those who advocate Biblical disobedience are not to be considered Biblically sound.

The Jesus Film/video, funded in 1978 by CNP's Nelson Bunker Hunt and produced by Bill Bright & Paul Eshleman,, was produced at a cost of $6 million, is used in promoting AD2000 & Beyond initiatives. The Jesus Film is also featured on the Campus Crusade for Christ Int’l. homepage. 13.  According to one source, "the film JESUS has been translated into more than 470 languages and reportedly been viewed by more than 1.6 billion people around the world. The film was financed and sponsored by Campus Crusade for Christ International. It was produced by John Heyman, Cannes Film Festival award winner. Warner Brothers handled the initial release in North American theaters." 14

The Jesus Film website 15. boasts, "Every two seconds—sometimes in the midst of global chaos and conflict—someone indicates a decision to receive Christ as personal Savior as a result of seeing the "JESUS" film...Through use by The JESUS Film Project, and more than 1,195 Christian agencies, this powerful film has been seen by more than 4 billion people worldwide...As a result, more than 139 million people have indicated decisions to accept Christ as their personal Savior and Lord..."

 "Jesus" is promoted by Random Story's from The Touch of Jesus, by Paul Eshleman. 

Simply Supernatural

A young couple from southern India decided that God was calling them to the Pioria region in the north. In addition to the lack of response to everything they did, they experienced a discouraging and debilitating time of illness. The water was infected with disease, and very often the entire family was sick. One day the father [missionary] felt especially ill. He went to the doctor to get something to ease his pain. When he came home from the doctor that night, he collapsed on the doorway of his home and died.

Several weeks later, a "JESUS" film team came into this area and the government officials, instead of stopping it, said, "We want to see this." They had usually stopped anything having to do with Christianity, but the governor of the area, quite impressed with the film, gave his permission for it to be shown, and he said it should be protected.

 The film team came to the village where the couple from the Friends' Missionary Prayer Band had lived. The people there said that on the night the missionary died, some clouds had appeared in the sky, and on the clouds a larger-than-life man walked over their barren hills, shedding tears. He went to a tree and picked a branch from it and the branch withered. Finally the picture of the man faded from the sky. The villagers thought perhaps God was displeased with them because they had not accepted the message of the missionary.

When the film reached the point where Jesus is baptized and His face is seen for the first time, the crowd suddenly roared. The team stopped the film to ask what the shouting was about. "It's him!" they exclaimed. "The man we saw walking in the clouds!"

 Most of the villagers came to Christ that night. The people connected the film with the missionary and the man they had seen in the cloud.

A Random Story > 16 >from The Touch of JESUS by Paul Eshleman

 The JESUS Film Project is a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ International....

To equate any man as being what Jesus Christ looks like and to have this "vision" look identical to a non-Christian does not align with Biblical truth. It is in Revelation that a "picture" of Christ is given and the Apostle John's reaction to seeing Him:

Revelation 1:12-17  "And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as flames of fire: And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not: I am the first and the last:"

In Daniel and other Scriptures we see the same reaction when God has revealed His Holy presence to someone: They fall on their faces in fear--as dead, totally overwhelmed with His presence. This is hardly the reaction of the villagers who "saw" the vision.

Many are suggesting that by supporting the ventures of Bill Bright and his associates they are completing the requirement of publishing the Gospel in all nations. They believe they are ushering in the return of Christ. If that were so, then we must apply ALL the Scriptures to Last Days time frame.

Matthew 24:24 "For there shall arise false Christ's, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and  wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." 

II Thessalonians 2:3,9 "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition. . .Even him whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders."

I Timothy 4:1 "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils."

 SEE: Lying Signs & Wonders:  

The future appearance of Jesus discussed in Scripture, by which the "vision" must be evaluated on, states:

Acts 1:11 "…this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."

I Thessalonians 4:16 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall arise first."

And until that appointed time - Hebrews 8: 1 "…We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens."

1 John 3:2 "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is."  

By these Scripture's, which must be our source of truth, could the "vision" be our Lord Jesus Christ? "The "vision," which the villagers saw that was identical to the actor could be a trial run of something like Project Blue Beam which Jack Van Impe and others discuss. Blue Beam is an alleged Government/NASA /other agencies’ laser project which produces holographs. Various sources suggest that satellites have been strategically placed to use this laser technology to project holographic images onto the earth's surface, hence the "vision." The various "sightings," which relate to the Jesus Film, may be man-made phenomena staged to elicit an emotionally charged response to the film.

1 Peter 1:7-8  “ That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ. Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.”

It has been suggested that if an English-speaking person were to view the Jesus Film he would think that it accurately presents the Gospel message. However, when translated to other languages, the film is contextualized to make the message more palatable to various religious groups. For example, the Hindu believer sees gestures to the forehead and other practices familiar to East Indians. The subtle message is that Jesus can be added to the other household gods. Therefore, the claims that there have been millions of conversions as a result of the Jesus Film are highly suspect, since the Gospel has not been accurately portrayed. Even worse, the Mission America and Campus Crusade global mapping projects are logging "crowd conversions" (whoever has seen the Jesus Film is registered as a conversion) into their data banks.

We could analyze these visions based on what has taken place, for instance, in Africa, where Charismatic/pentecostal teachers and their teachings were embraced in the early 1900's because the manifestations demonstrated were no different than what was already seen in shamanism. Those who did not become free of the occult practices and turn from them by honestly accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, merely moved back into those origins. It is the same in every country, including North America. The foundation concept is the Parable of the Sower and also Building upon What Foundation?--Jesus Christ, God's Word or something else. SEE: Sins of "the father"~ Charles F. Parham & What Happened in Africa?; The Elimination of the Cross

Robert K. Brown - CNP 1988; also according to attendance to CNP Board of Governors meeting, List of Member Participants Dallas, Texas, August 17-18, 1984, and financial contributions to CNP for at least four years. 19.;  he is founder/editor/publisher of Soldier of Fortune magazine (SOF) 20 , a mercenary magazine; president, Omega Group Ltd, parent group of SOF; former special agent, Counter Intelligence Corps; Special Forces "A" Team leader;

Currently member of Legislative Policy, Grassroots Development, Publications Policies, Action Shooting and Range Development Committees. Has supported and funded pro-gun candidates for state legislatures, House of Representatives and U.S. Senate; combat correspondent and investigative journalist. 21 

Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, Sept. 22, 1999 issued a proclamation declaring that day to be "Soldier of Fortune Day" and "Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown Day" in honor of Soldier of Fortune magazine, its 20th annual convention in Las Vegas, and its founder and publisher." 

Brown was Vice Chair on the Nominating Committee of the National Rifle Association (NRA)22. 

In addition to publishing Soldier of Fortune, the Omega Group publishes two other gun magazines: Guns & Action and Combat Weapons.(1)...Calling themselves "action journalists," many of SOF's reporters have come under fire for participating in the training of counterrevolutionary groups in El Salvador and Nicaragua. SOF claims to have sent over a dozen training teams to El Salvador in the early 1980's to train government troops in sniping, anti-guerrilla urban warfare, explosives and weapons maintenance.(10,11) The magazine's "Expanded Central America Edition" (Sept. 1983), which coincided with the group's training trip to El Salvador, showed a picture of a Salvadoran soldier and two members of the magazine's group crouching around the bodies of two dead guerrillas. Robert J. McCartney, author of an article about SOF, claims that "The picture clearly resembled photographs that hunters take after they have bagged a deer."(11)" 23

According to Bellant's article in Covert Action, Soldier of Fortune has regularly praised pro-Nazi individuals and groups, and promotes the sale of Nazi regalia. SOF started in 1975 in sympathy with the racist regime of Rhodesia. In recent years, SOF staff have trained Salvadoran military units in urban warfare. 24

"In February 1985, former Justice Department attorney John Loftus sent Congress a report detailing his suspicions that [William] Casey and [John K.] Singlaub [CNP], using the World Anti-Communist League, had resurrected an old private conduit system for laundering money to "freedom fighters." The old conduit was Crusade for Freedom, a public charity established by retired General Lucius Clay that provided "private" support for the National Committee for a Free Europe (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 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] ..."

For Radio Free Europe and or Radio Liberty >  [was American Committee for Liberation]~ J. Peter GraceDr. Stanley MonteithFrank Shakespeare

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 in 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, and 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 ad 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 in 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 in 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."..."

"Brigade 2506...the kind of freedom fighting the Brigade supports is evident in its choice of Chilean dictator Pinochet for its first Freedom Award in 1975..."

"The Virginia-based Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) was founded by the Reverend Pat Robertson [CNP]...In distributing aid to the contras and other Central America projects, CBN has worked with the Air Commandos, Refugee Relief International, World Medical Relief, Friends of the Americas, Knights of Malta and other groups."

"The Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM), known as the Knights of Malta, is an elite, international Vatican order..." 25   

Other groups listed include PRODEMCA, Citizens for America (founded by CNP's Lew Lehrman with donors including  Nelson Bunker Hunt and Joseph Coors ) and Moon's CAUSA and the Nicaraguan Freedom Fund, Friends of the Americas..." (founded by CNP's Woody Jenkins) and others.

Scott Anderson and John Lee Anderson, authors of Inside the League, describe the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations ( ABN) 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.'...July 13, 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 in 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 in 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." 26.  

Refugee Relief International is an affiliate of CAUSA and US chapter of WACL, and involves John Singlaub, as well as working with Andy Messing's National Defense Council. Messing is a member of Singlaub's American chapter of WACL,  the U.S. Council for World Freedom. It operates RRI jointly with Soldier of Fortune 27.   Footnotes 19-27

Samuel A. Brunelli -CNP Member 1996. Former Executive Director and  1995 Chairman of the Board, American Legislative Exchange Council.(ALEC). 28 National Advisory Board of Capital Research Center; former assistant to Secretary of Education William Bennett; formerly with the Denver Broncos. Senior Vice-President Team Builders International 29.  

Board member and co-founder The Empowerment Network, (TEN)30 , "1992, former U.S. Housing and Urban Department (HUD) Empowerment Deputy Assistant Secretary David Caprara co-founded TEN with state legislative leaders Sam [Brunelli] and Robin Brunelli, National Center for Neighborhood Enterprise President Bob Woodson, Indianapolis Mayor Steve Goldsmith, Kimi Gray, former Governor George Allen, Clint Bolick of the Institute for Justice, and other leaders who shared the vision of creating a "hub" to springboard empowerment initiatives at the grassroots, state and federal levels."

Capital Research Center 31 trustees or  National advisory board, include CNP's Terence Scanlon, chairman and president, Hon. Edwin Meese III, Richard V. Allen, Dr. Larry P. Arnn, President, The Claremont Institute, T. Kenneth Cribb Jr., President, Intercollegiate Studies Institute, and others who hold organizational leadership.

American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC): Established in 1973 by Paul Weyrich  of the Free Congress Foundation's Coalition for Constitutional Liberties, among others, ALEC's purpose is to reach out to state office holders. In the words of ALEC's former executive director, Sam Brunelli:

"ALEC's goal is to ensure that these state legislators are so well informed, so well armed, that they can set the terms of the public policy debate, that they can change the agenda, that they can lead. This is the infrastructure that will reclaim the states for our movement."
32.  

ALEC has the financial support of more than 200 corporations including Coors now Castle Rock Foundation, Scaife's Family and Allegheny Foundation, Amway, IBM, Ford, Philip Morris, Exxon, Texaco and Shell Oil. William Bennett, [CNP's] Jack Kemp, [CNP's] John H. Sununu, and George Bush have all addressed ALEC sessions in recent years. 33 

Samuel Brunelli is listed as a member of Chester Finn’s Education Policy Committee which interfaces with GOALS 2000 [‘95]. Both American Legislative Exchange Council [ALEC–conservative] and the ALEC counterpart, the National Conference of State Legislatures [NCSL–liberal], blanket state legislators with their MODEL legislation. ALEC boasts a membership of over 3,000 state legislators; additionally there are over 450 corporate members. ALEC supports charter school legislation and ALEC literature discusses their promotion of "public/private partnerships" as a solution to reform government. These partnerships will utilize public funds, but will remove accountability to taxpayers. There is a high correlation of GOALS 2000 related corporations who are members of ALEC. 34

Citizens Commission for Human Rights (CCHR) is a Scientology front which funds ALEC. 

An offshoot of ALEC, April 1, 1998 honored the wife of Sun Myung Moon, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon 35  The award was presented by Robin Brunelli, president of the National Foundation for Women Legislators 36.  and the wife of Sam Brunelli, the ex- Director of ALEC and long-time member of the CNP. Her husband, former Reagan administration official Sam Brunelli, joined her for the tribute. At the same meeting a "Champion of Family and Community" award was given to Robin along with six other recipients." Rabbi Herzel Krantz, chairman of the American-Jewish Assembly, also provided a moving historical moment at the meeting when he read another plaque’s tribute to Rev. and Mrs. Moon." 37.

The Mont Pelerin Society 42. - 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 [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" 43. 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

Update: 

"Following a long and courageous battle with cancer and heart disease, Larry Burkett completed his journey of serving the Lord Jesus Christ on this earth. Having battled cancer and heart attacks for the past several years, God called Larry into His presence at 3 am on July 4th.
....In 1973, Dr. Bill Bright invited Larry and Judy to join the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ. Here he counseled the staff, many of whom were struggling financially, on how to handle money God’s way.

In 1976, he founded Christian Financial Concepts. He poured his life into serving the Lord through this ministry. He loved the ministry, he loved his staff, and he genuinely loved the people who looked to the ministry for help.

Larry was a prolific writer, authoring more than 70 books including several best sellers. Larry’s radio program was carried on more than 1,000 stations in the United States..."

"...After completing high school in Winter Garden, Fla., he entered the U.S. Air Force where he served in the Strategic Air Command.

Upon completion of his military duties, he and his wife Judy returned to central Florida, where he worked in the space program at Cape Canaveral, Fla. He spent the next several years at the space center in charge of an experiments test facility that served the Mercury-, Gemini-, and Apollo-manned space programs. While working at the space center, Larry earned degrees in marketing and finance at Rollins College, Winter Park, Fla...Larry left the space center in 1970 to become vice president of an electronics manufacturing firm. In 1972 Larry put his trust and faith in Jesus Christ...In 1973 he left the electronics company to join the staff of a nonprofit ministry, Campus Crusade for Christ, as a financial counselor. It was during this time that he began an intense study of what the Bible says about handling money, and he started teaching small groups around the country.

In 1976 Larry Burkett left the campus ministry to form Christian Financial Concepts, a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching the biblical principles of handling money. In September 2000, CFC merged with Crown Ministries, creating a new organization, Crown Financial Ministries. Larry serves as chairman of the board of directors...Larry published more than 70 books, sales of which now exceed 11 million copies and include several national best-sellers. The four radio programs, “Money Matters,” “How to Manage Your Money,” “MoneyWatch,” and “A Money Minute,” are carried on approximately 2,000 radio outlets worldwide. Since 1999, “Money Matters” was awarded NRB “Talk Show of the Year” three times. In May of 1996, Southwest Baptist University conferred on Larry an Honorary Doctorate in Economics..."

Honorable Dan Burton- CNP 1988, 1996, 1998; member US House of Representatives (Indiana-6th); vice chairman, Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa.

"...In the late 1980s and early 1990s [Dan] Burton and Republican Senator Jesse Helms worked with the International Freedom Foundation, a Washington-based organisation 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 organisation in Washington. Dan Burton called the freedom movement of the ANC a 'terrorist' organisation 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."

"Abramhoff 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..." 50.   Footnotes 50
