American Conservative Union 6.  (ACU)"...November 7, 1964, just five days after the election, several of conservatism's leading luminaries gathered to pick up the pieces and assess the movement's future. They were determined not merely to paper over the damage, but to craft and forge a new vehicle through which the ideas and ideals articulated in the 1964 campaign could be advanced in the political arena without apology or retreat. Most felt that existing groups were limited in their appeal (such as Young Americans for Freedom) or too tarnished or discredited by controversy (such as the John Birch Society)...Led by such figures as Frank S. Meyer, John Chamberlain, Jameson Campaigne, Sr., John M. Ashbrook (CNP), Katherine St. George, William F. Buckley, Jr. (CFR), L. Brent Bozell (CNP L. Brent Bozell, III ), and Robert E. Bauman (organizer of the founding meeting), among others, this new vehicle - - the American Conservative Union - - was established...The first meeting of the original ACU Board of Directors was held December 18, 1964, at the Statler (now the Capital) Hilton Hotel in Washington. Members included Ashbrook, Bauman, Bozell, Buckley, Campaigne, Meyer, and St. George, along with Lammot Copeland, Peter O'Donnell,  John A. Howard , and Congressman Donald C. Bruce of Indiana, who was elected the first chairman...Toward the end of 1965, Congressman Bruce, pleading exhaustion, sought the Board's acceptance of his resignation. ...on October 21... Ohio Congressman John M. Ashbrook (CNP) was elected his successor..."

"...the Scaife Foundation had financed a New York City outpost for the paleoconservative Rockford Institute, under the leadership of neoconservative of Lutheran minister Richard John Neuhaus. While Neuhaus' Center for Religion and Society attracted corporate foundation grants denied to the parent Rockford Institute, Neuhaus, himself made no secret of his anger over Rockford's publication...of articles denouncing the promotion by neoconservatives of "democratic globalism," plus what Neuhaus described as the Rockford editors' "anti-Semitic and nativist tendencies." In a watershed May 1989 incident, reported on the front page of the New York Times, Rockford executives finally flew from Illinois to New York where they locked down Neuhaus' Manhattan office, carted away furniture, and left Neuhaus with his personal belongings waiting for a taxi cab on Madison Avenue." 11 

Charles Colson and Fr. Richard John Neuhaus (Lutheran who converted to Catholicism) authored the ecumenical documents Evangelicals and Catholics Together and Evangelicals and Catholics Together II. The approval for the wording was required to come from Cardinal Edward Idris Cassidy, president of the Vatican's Pontifical Council for promoting Christian Unity.

Besides the authors, Charles Colson and Fr. Richard John Neuhaus, the original document was signed in 1994 by:

(# --Have since removed their names)

There are most likely many others that applied their names in agreement even if they never made it public. As well, one must consider the influence and position each in agreement has with colleagues and congregations.

Evangelicals and Catholics Together II boasts scholars and Christian leaders who endorsed the original 25-page statement in addition to the original authors Colson and Neuhaus.

Joseph Coors, Jeffrey Coors, Darden Coors and Carin Coors are all members of the CNP and Linda Tafoya, executive director of the Adolph Coors Foundation, is believed to be a member as well. While supporting right-wing and evangelical causes, it should be noted that the money that comes from the Coors family through the Adolph Coors Foundation and the Castle Rock Foundation, is from the family brewery business, of which each have stock holdings. The Coors Family works with, hold memberships in or make grants to organizations such as the Heritage Foundation, The Free Congress Foundation, the Leadership Institute, the Institute on Religion and Public Life, Young America's Foundation, the Media Research Center, the Center for Study of Popular Culture and many more. 20.

The Coors Brewing Company workplace policies dealing with sexual orientation are now considered among the best in corporate America. The company now offers domestic partnership benefits, has a nondiscrimination policy specifically including sexual orientation and a recognized queer employees' group, known as LAGER (Lesbian And Gay Employee Resource). Coors brags that it is the only U.S. brewery to pass the "Lavender Screen" test of gay-friendly policies developed by investment counselor Howard Tharsing of V Management in Oakland. Tharsing calls the company "one of the most progressive in terms of its employment policies." Last year Coors persuaded the California Association of Pride, Inc. (CAPI), the statewide association of lesbian and gay pride celebrations, to end its boycott, and company spokeswoman Cinde Dolphin notes that Coors has sponsored gay pride events in cities around the country, including Boston, Denver and Ft. Lauderdale. In California it has sponsored pride events in San Jose, Santa Barbara and Palm Springs and is actively promoting its products to gay bars and restaurants. 22  Footnotes 20-22

For a History of the Coors Family See:

Jeffrey Coors - CNP Member 1984-85; 1988; 1996, CNP Board of Governors 1996, 1998; son of Joseph and Holly Coors and great grandson of Adolph Coors. Current President and CEO of Graphic Packaging Corporation, a NYSE public company based in Golden, Colorado. Graphic Packaging is the largest U.S. manufacturer of paperboard packaging with 20 plants across the United States. From 1992 to 1999, Jeff was president and chief executive officer of ACX Technologies, the parent company of Graphic Packaging and CoorsTek (formerly Coors Ceramics Company). On December 31,1999, CoorsTek was spun off from ACX, which now goes by the name of Graphic Packaging, thereby creating two totally separate manufacturing companies. Prior to that, Jeff Coors' 25-year career with Adolph Coors Company encompassed a broad range of management responsibilities, including president of Adolph Coors Company and chairman and chief executive officer of Coors Technology Companies. ACX Technologies, Inc., is a Fortune 500 industrial products manufacturing company with businesses in technical ceramics, paper packaging materials and aluminum sheet fabrication; 

ACX's past board included Jeffrey Coors, who doubled as company president, William Coors (chairman of the board and president of Coors Brewing Co.), Joseph Coors, Joseph Coors, Jr. and John K. Coors. (Interestingly, one non-family board member, John D. Beckett [CNP], also sits on Paul Weyrich's Free Congress Foundation board which Jeffrey Coors chairs). 23 

A report filed 30 July 1996 with the Security Exchange Commission by ACX Technologies, inc., reports that 857,744 shares of ACX stock are held by the Adolph Coors Foundation. Jeffrey Coors is the largest individual stockholder in ACX. "... ACX does a whopping business with Coors Brewing Co. According to the Coors annual report, ACX has been a key supplier of aluminum for Coors' beer cans, while "most of the secondary packaging for Coors Brewing Co.'s products, including bottle labels and paperboard products, is supplied by Graphic Packaging Corporation, an ACX subsidiary." The brewery also purchases 100 million pounds of refined cornstarch annually from another ACX subsidiary, in an agreement that runs through1997." 24

Jeffrey serves on the boards of Hillsdale College, The Independent Institute, National Association of Manufacturers, Intercessors for America, Adolph Coors and Castle Rock Foundations. He is past chairman of the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry;  chaired CACI's "Blueprint for Colorado" steering committee;  Board of Advisors of the Nevada Policy Research Institute. He is chairman of Free Congress Foundation.

The former President of Hillsdale College, George C. Roche III, was also a member of the Mont Pelerin Society, becoming a member in 1971. Roche in 1975 hosted a Mont Pelerin meeting at the Hillsdale College. 25  Dr. Larry P. Arnn replaced Roche as president of Hillsdale College. Hillsdale College board members include CNP's Frank Shakespeare and Jack Eckerd

The Free Congress Foundation (FCF) board of directors include director Paul Weyrich, an ardent supporter of the Society for the Protection of  Tradition, Family and Property 26.  and Charles Moser, an editorial adviser to a publication that praises the Nazi Waffen SS. Weyrich, who for years has represented the political interests of the Coors family in Washington, DC, sponsors the work of a convicted Nazi collaborator, Laszlo Pasztor, a Hungarian-American who is employed at FCF. The Coors-funded Heritage Foundation co-sponsored a 1989 forum with a pro-Nazi group, the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations. SEE: Dr. David Balsiger

Power Brokers: There are other powerful New Right funders, but it is the Coors family who time and again appear in leadership roles in New Right institutions, offering a guiding hand along with their signed checks. The family is seen, by critics and compatriots alike, as being in the front rank of conservative U.S. power brokers. Some observers contend that the Coors empire has moderated politically because the Coors Corporation now financially supports some women's, civil rights and gay and lesbian groups. 27    Footnotes 23-27

Joseph Coors - CNP Board of Governors 1982; Executive Committee 1984-85, Chairman of the CNP Governmental Affairs Committee;  former president of the Adolph Coors Company, chairman of the Board, Coors Porcelain Company; former Regent of the University of Colorado, former member of the Board of Directors of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM); former Board member, Colorado School of Mines; a member of the Citizen's Legal Defense Fund for the FBI, Ad Hoc, which is closely allied with the National Lay Committee of the National Council of Churches (NCC), and a prime donor at the founding of the Heritage Foundation; former member Board of Directors,  The Heritage Foundation, now Honorary Trustee.

A press release from May 11, 2000 noted the corporate board changes to Coors: 

William K. Coors, chairman of Adolph Coors Company (NYSE: RKY), today announced changes to the composition of the Boards of Directors of Adolph Coors Company and the company's principal subsidiary, Coors Brewing Company, as well as changes to the roles and responsibilities of the top management of Coors Brewing Company.

Effective today, Peter H. Coors -- formerly vice chairman and chief executive officer, Coors Brewing Company -- will serve as chairman of Coors Brewing Company and president and chief executive officer of Adolph Coors Company. W. Leo Kiely III -- formerly president and chief operating officer, Coors Brewing Company -- has been promoted to the position of president and chief executive officer of Coors Brewing Company. William K. Coors -- formerly chairman, Adolph Coors Company and Coors Brewing Company -- will continue to serve as chairman of Adolph Coors Company and adds the role of chairman of Coors Brewing Company's executive committee. Joseph Coors -- formerly vice chairman, Adolph Coors Company -- will retire from the board of Adolph Coors Company and serve as director emeritus for both Adolph Coors Company and Coors Brewing Company. Joseph Coors had been a board member since 1942. 28 Peter Coors is Jeffrey's brother. 29

"In the 50's Coors family funded the John Birch Society. From 1967 to 1972 Joseph Coors was a regent at the University of Colorado where he opposed the existence of campus groups such as UMAS (United Mexican American Students), BSU (Black Student Union), and SDS (Students for a Democratic Society). He was always known for distributing John Birch Society literature to fellow regents. He was quoted as saying the University should strive for quality students and not quantity." 30. 

In 1971 Joe Coors along with Jack Wilson and Paul Weyrich founded Analysis and Research Inc., to establish a political research entity. Joe Coors donated the first-year Heritage budget of $250,000 for 1973 from the coffers of the Coors Corporation and for the next two years gave $200,000. He then pledged $15,000 per month. Coors and Weyrich set up the Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress to carry out political activities and the Heritage Foundation as a tax exempt educational research entity. The Coors company provided Heritage Foundation with $20,000 per month during the foundation's first year. Weyrich was Heritage president until February 28, 1974. Weyrich had ties to Josef Strauss of Bavaria Germany who was active in a political party that coalesced with repentant Nazi's after World War II.

Strauss came to the United States in the early 1970's.  Weyrich and Strauss' aide by the name of Armin K. Haas planned Strauss' schedule. Joe Coors helped Haas make political contacts in Congress. 31 

He provided financial backing for, Accuracy in Media 32  chairman is CNP's Reed Irvine , a right-wing media watchdog group.(19) He also supported various groups organized by New Right tactician Paul Weyrich including the Catholic Center, a religious group that sent conservative "truth squads" to counteract the activities of liberal bishops,... Coors money has supported right-wing religious groups including the Church League of America, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Moral Majority, and the Campus Crusade for Christ.(5) Coors supported Lt. Gen. John Singlaub's U.S. Council for World Freedom (USCWF), the U.S. chapter of the World Anti- Communist League (WACL). USCWF and the Nicaraguan Refugee Fund (another Coor's cause) played major roles in funding the Nicaraguan contras.(5) Coors is on the board of trustees of the Heritage Foundation.(22) He was on the advisory council of the National Strategy Information Center, a right-wing think tank for military strategy.(23). 33 

Joseph Coors, was a member of Reagan's "kitchen cabinet", having joined that body in 1980. An enthusiastic anti-communist, Coors was a keystone of the contra support system put together by the White House. His donation of $65,000 to NEPL (see card #15), used to purchase a small plane, was but a fraction of the overall support he gave to the contra cause. Profits from the sale of Coors beer have funded many of the non- governmental institutions that promoted and sustained the contra war. These include the Heritage Foundation (a right wing think tank), Citizens for America (a grassroots lobby), and John Singlaub's U.S. Council for World Freedom (the American chapter of WACL) (see card #7). 34  

The kitchen cabinet is a group of millionaires who have financed Ronald Reagan's political career from the governorship of California to the White House. This group has profited greatly from Reagan's pro-business policies. Its members include Holmes Tuttle of Ford and Rexall; A.C. Rubel, chairman of Union Oil; Henry Salvatori, oil developer; Justin Dart, of Dart-Kraft; Leonard Firestone, of Firestone Tire and Rubber; Taft Schreber of MCA Inc.; and William French Smith, Reagan's former Attorney General.

Other wealthy conservatives who contributed to the contras through NEPL include Barbara Newington ($2,866,025), Ellen Garwood ($2,518,135) and Nelson Bunker Hunt ($484,500). 35.  

Heritage uses many endorsements including a letter of endorsement from 1981 White House Chief of Staff Edwin Meese  [CNP] in a fundraising effort. In his letter of endorsement, Meese promised 1997 Heritage president  Ed Feulner (CNP) and 1973 original board trustee,  that "this Administration will cooperate fully with your efforts." After leaving the Reagan Administration, Meese joined the staff of the Heritage Foundation and continues as a Fellow. 

Adolph Coors IV, listed on the Speakers Bureau 36. is the great-grandson of Adolph Herman Joseph Coors. His father had been Chairman of the Board of Coor's until, when Adolph IV was 14, his father was kidnapped and brutally murdered.  Spent six years working at the Adolph Coors Company in various departments such as Marketing, Administration, Sales, Brewing, Quality Control, R&D, and Financial Planning. He has served on the Board of Directors of Prison Fellowship Ministries, an international prison ministry founded by Chuck Colson and based in Washington, D.C.   He is presently on the Advisory Board of the Family Ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ, and the Board of Advisors of Kanakuk Kamp, a Christian camp for boys and girls located in Branson, Missouri.
