According to Daniel Junas, CERT is coordinating its Honduras activities with members of the Unification Church or its related organizations. Junas, a researcher on the Unification Church, said it appears that CERT has taken over the direct humanitarian and contra assistance work of CAUSA, the political arm of the Unification Church.(13,14) He also indicated that the American Freedom Coalition, an organization dominated by the Unification Church, tried to arrange morning TV appearances for a representative of the Miskito Indians who was working with CERT.(13) The American Freedom Coalition has also supported CERT financially." 6   Footnotes 4-6

The Cullen Davis Case. Former Texas millionaire Cullen Davis was acquitted of the capital murder of his twelve-year-old step-daughter, the murder of his estranged wife’s boyfriend, and the attempted murder of his estranged wife, Priscilla. Several years later, another jury acquitted Davis of conspiring to hire a hit man to kill some of the people responsible for his previous arrest.  "August 2, 1976, a mysterious "man in black" entered the palatial home of oil multimillionaire T. Cullen Davis and his estranged wife, Priscilla, and shot to death Priscilla's twelve-year-old daughter, Andrea Wilborn, and Priscilla's lover, ex-TCU basketball player Stan Farr, and wounded Priscilla's friend, Gus "Bubba" Gavrel, Jr., and Priscilla herself, then fled back into the night, and that Cullen became the richest man ever to be put on trial for murder in the United States. Acquitted after three years, Cullen divorced, and married a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, and held a religious revival at his mansion where, before seven witnesses, he would declare himself a born-again Christian." 11.  1987 divorce hearings. 12

Don DeFore- CNP 1984, 1988; Hollywood actor; 32nd º Mason, Shriner

Thomas D. DeLay - CNP 1996, 1998, ?; United States House of Representatives; represented 22nd District of Texas since 1984.  Became a Christian in 1985; Republican, appointed Deputy Minority Whip in 1988, House Majority Whip in 1994; elected House Majority Leader after 2002 elections. 

In 2005, Tom DeLay was indicted in Austin, Texas on criminal charges of conspiracy to violate election laws in 2002 by a Travis County, Texas grand jury after having waived his rights under the statutes of limitations. He temporarily resigned from his position as House Majority Leader and on January 7, 2006 announced he would not seek to return to his position.

Tom Delay and and his political associates Jim Ellis and John Colyandro were first indicted September 28, 2005, by the Travis County, Texas, Grand Jury, all three charged with "conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme.". []

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.

DeLay received gifts from former CNP member Jack Abramoff. It is unknown if they were members of the CNP at the same time because of the missing membership information between 1988, Abramoff's last known membership year, and 1996, DeLay's first year that can be confirmed.

Although DeLay has been publicly denying the charges, the trial judge dismissed the one count of the indictment, alleging conspiracy to violate election law. Judge Priest, however, denied the motion to dismiss the charges alleging money laundering and conspiracy to engage in money laundering.

According to various media, and in particular, in December 2005, the Washington Post reported that a group of Russian oil executives gave money to a non-profit advocacy group which was linked to Tom DeLay and Jack Abramoff. The reports suggest that it was an attempt to influence his vote on a 1998 International Monetary Fund bailout of the Russian economy. Associates of Ed Buckham, the founder of the U.S. Family Network, stated that executives from the oil firm Naftasib offered a donation of $1,000,000 to secure DeLay's support, with DeLay denying that the payment, which came via a check from a London law firm to U.S. Family Network, influenced his vote. Naftasib denied it made the payment or that they were represented by the named law firm, and the dissolved law firm declined to comment.

From SourceWatch, with hotlinks removed:

"....Prosecutor Ronnie Earle "broadened the scope of his inquiry into election spending" on January 5, 2006, "demanding documents related to funds that passed through a nonprofit organization," the U.S. Family Network, Inc., "founded in 1996 by DeLay's then-chief of staff," Ed Buckham," which "received $500,000 in 1999 from the National Republican Congressional Committee and used some of the money to finance radio ads attacking Democrats," R. Jeffrey Smith reported in the Washington Post  

"From Russia With Love"
"Two former associates" of DeLay's former chief of staff and organizer of U.S. Family Network, Inc., Ed Buckham, said Buckham told them Russian oil and gas executives "Marina Nevskaya and Alexander Koulakovsky of the oil firm Naftasib" contributed $1 million in 1998 "specifically to influence DeLay's vote on legislation the International Monetary Fund needed to finance a bailout of the collapsing Russian economy." Jack Abramoff "had been working closely with two such Russian energy executives on their Washington agenda, and the lobbyist [Abramoff] and Buckham had helped organize a 1997 Moscow visit by DeLay." --R. Jeffrey Smith, Washington Post
 , December 31, 2005.

"...District Attorney Ronnie Earle issued subpoenas late Monday afternoon [December 12, 2005,] for California businessmen Brent Wilkes and Max Gelwix, records of Perfect Wave Technologies LLC, Wilkes Corp. and ADCS Inc. in connection with a contribution to a fundraising committee at the center of the investigation that led to DeLay's indictment on money laundering charges," the Associated Press's Suzanne Gamboa reported.

...Following the November 21, 2005, plea agreement on federal conspiracy charges by Michael Scanlon -- former aide to DeLay and partner to DeLay associate Jack Abramoff -- the likelihood of "federal charges against members of Congress intensified" when Scanlon "agreed to co-operate with investigators." [4]  

"The Wall Street Journal reported November 25, 2005, that the Justice Department's "investigation into possible influence-peddling by prominent Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff is examining his dealings with four lawmakers, more than a dozen current and former congressional aides and two former Bush administration officials, lawyers and others involved in the case. ... [Namely] House Majority Leader Tom DeLay of Texas, Rep. Bob Ney (R., Ohio), Rep. John Doolittle (R., Calif.) and Sen. Conrad Burns (R., Mont.), according to several people close to the investigation. ... Five of the former aides worked for Mr. DeLay, including" Tony Rudy, Ed Buckham and Susan B. Hirschmann. "The three were top aides to Mr. DeLay and are now Washington lobbyists." [5] 

"Long-time political allies DeLay and Roy Blunt, "the deputy who succeeded him as House majority leader, orchestrated a political money carousel in 2000 that diverted donations secretly collected for presidential convention parties to some of their own pet causes."

"When it all ended, DeLay's private charity, along with the consulting firm that employed DeLay's wife and the Missouri campaign of Blunt's son, Matt, who now is the state's governor, all ended up with a piece of the pie, according to campaign documents reviewed by The Associated Press." [6]

"Jack Abramoff, the Washington lobbyist recently charged in an ongoing federal corruption and fraud investigation, and Jim Ellis, the DeLay fundraiser indicted with his boss last week in Texas, also appeared in the picture." [7] 

"DeLay has received perks from Abramoff for years, including an 'education and golfing' trip to Korea, funded by a registered foreign agent, which is a violation of House rules. ("The money was funneled through a Washington tax-exempt group and the trip arranged" by Abramoff. [8] 

"Also involved in the transactions is the Alexander Strategy Group, the "political consulting firm formed by DeLay's former chief of staff, Ed Buckham." [9] 

"None of the hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations DeLay collected for the 2000 convention were ever disclosed to federal regulators because the type of group DeLay used wasn't governed by federal law at the time." [10]     [SourceWatch:]

Again From Source Watch:

"Tom DeLay is implicated as the recipient of numerous gifts and other favors from indicted Washington Lobyist Jack Abramoff, whom he once characterized as "one of his closest and dearest friends." Abramoff and his wife have personally contributed $40,000 to DeLay and his PAC. Abramoff also arranged multiple overseas expense-paid trips for DeLay and his top staffers to Russia, Saipan and Britain over the years. Funding for these trips has been closely tied to Indian gaming tribes, Russian business tycoons and overseas sweatshop operators. [15] 

"The Associated Press reported on April 7, 2005, "DeLay's political action committee did not reimburse lobbyist Jack Abramoff for the May 2000 use of the skybox, instead treating it as a type of donation that didn't have to be disclosed to election regulators at the time.

"The skybox donation, valued at thousands of dollars, came just three weeks before DeLay accepted a trip to Europe including golf with Abramoff at the world-famous St. Andrews course for himself, his wife and aides that was underwritten by some of the lobbyist's clients."

"Two months after the concert and trip, DeLay voted against gambling legislation opposed by some of Abramoff's Indian tribe clients." [16] "   [SourceWatch:]

In a January 6 press release issued three days after Jack Abramoff's indictment, James Dobson declared,

"If the nation's politicians don't fix this national disaster, then the oceans of gambling money with which Jack Abramoff tried to buy influence on Capitol Hill will only be the beginning of the corruption we'll see." ... "Gambling--all types of gambling--is driven by greed and subsists on greed."

From Abramoff's Evangelical Soldiers by Max Blumenthal, writing for The Nation and posted February 2, 2006, and noting individuals such as James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Ralph Reed, Jerry Falwell, Tony Perkins, Gary Bauer, all of whom are members of the CNP:

"...What Dobson neglected to mention--and has yet to discuss publicly--is his own pivotal role in one of Abramoff's schemes. In 2002 Dobson joined a coterie of Christian-right activists, including Tony Perkins, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, to spearhead Abramoff's campaigns against the establishment of several Louisiana casinos that infringed on the turf of Abramoff's tribal clients. Dobson and his allies recorded messages for phone banking, lobbied high-level Bush Administration officials and took to the airwaves. Whether they knew it or not, these Christian soldiers' crusade to protect families in the "Sportsmen's Paradise" from the side effects of chronic slot-pulling and dice-rolling was funded by the gambling industry and planned by the lobbyist known even to his friends as "Casino Jack."

"The only Christian-right activist confirmed to be completely aware of Abramoff's rip-off was Ralph Reed. He and Abramoff have a long and storied history together. When Abramoff chaired the College Republican National Committee in the early 1980s, Reed served as the organization's executive director. They reunited in 1989, when Abramoff helped Reed organize the remains of Pat Robertson's failed 1988 presidential bid into the Christian Coalition. In 1997, with the Christian Coalition under IRS investigation and Reed facing accusations of cronyism from the group's chief financial officer, he left to start his own consulting firm, Century Strategies. Reed contacted Abramoff right away. "I need to start humping in corporate accounts," Reed told him in 1998. "I'm counting on you to help me with some contacts."

..."In July 2002, at the height of the anti-Jena campaign, [Gary] Bauer and Rabbi Daniel Lapin, a fixture at Christian-right events, founded the American Alliance of Christians and Jews. 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. Rudy, who was Tom DeLay's deputy chief of staff at the time, later a lobbyist, has been named in Abramoff's guilty plea"  [ ]

Daniel Lapin is mentioned in> CNP bio on D. James Kennedy:


"...D James Kennedy hosts an annual "Reclaiming America for Christ" conference, at which fellow activists like Shirley Dobson, Larry Poland, and Janet Parshall exhort Christians to organize at the grassroots level, swaying the decisions of national policymakers; April 19, 2000, ecumenical group form the Interfaith Council for Environmental Stewardship (ICES) [SEE: ICES] members include, Father Richard John Neuhaus of the magazine First Things, James Dobson of Focus on the Family, D. James Kennedy of Coral Ridge Ministries, "Bill" Bright, Tom Minnery, etc., and Rabbi Daniel Lapin of Toward Tradition. "

Actons Board and Advisory Board include: Mrs. Betsy DeVos [CNP's Rich DeVos hus., daughter of CNP's Elsa Prince]- Treasurer; [CNP's] Dr. Edwin J. Feulner, Jr, The Heritage Foundation; Mr. Doug Bandow, Cato Institute 52; Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Toward Tradition; Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, George Mason University 53 ; Dr. Ronald Nash, Reformed Theological Seminary 54 ; Mr. Michael Novak, American Enterprise Institute [many CNP involved]; Hon. William E. Simon, John M. Olin Foundation  55[CFR, Mont Pelerin Society, etc.];  Marvin Olasky is senior Fellow.

Rabbi Lapin is frequently featured at Christian conferences, such as those held by the Christian Coalition [Pat Robertson [CNP]. . Ralph  Reed [Christian Coalition] has said of Lapin, "Rabbi Lapin is a key leader and one of our most popular speakers." Lapin advertised on the radio [1997/'98] for a seminar he conducts called America's Biblical Blueprint. As he is warmly received and promoted in Christian circles, his appeal is in a large part to Christians. But Lapin is not a Christian. The Bible he teaches from would be limited to the Old Testament: mainly Genesis, Exodus and other books of the Torah. Lapin's message would be void of the revelation of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. 

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

Lapin's colleague and friend is Michael Medved ... a national radio talk show host based in Seattle. When he travels to Washington , D.C., which he does frequently, he broadcasts at his "home away from home" the Heritage Foundation [Paul Weyrich~ CNP]...Medved's, wife Diane, who is a psychologist, was a paid speaker at the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's 1996 Federation of World Peace Conference with  CNP's Beverly LaHaye, Ralph Reed and Gary Bauer. 

Toward Tradition 56 ~ headed by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, an Orthodox Jew. As president of Toward Tradition, a national conservative think tank [with a nationwide network], he attempts to impact political leaders and the culture for conservative values. Lapin sits on the Advisory Board of Washington Institute Foundation [WA state], [Formerly WA Institute for Policy Studies] part of the Heritage Foundation's State Policy Network [Weyrich]. Dick Derham [CNP, 1984] recently replaced the former president and radio talk show host [KVI 570, Seattle], John Carlson, who has recently announced his bid for Washington state Governor.

Newcomen Society 20. was established in America in 1923 to distinguish and recognize "those factors which have contributed or are contributing to the progress of Mankind" through a material (as opposed to a political) contribution or influence." The society honors "corporate entities and other organizations which contribute to or are examples of success attained under free enterprise, and recognizes contributions to that system".

Charles Penrose, chairman of the Newcomen Society in 1958, wrote, "...continue the struggle towards a nobler Civilization--through wider knowledge and understanding of the hopes, ambitions, and deeds of leaders of the past who have upheld Civilizations material progress..."21

Amway launched a five year corporate sponsorship for the Aspen Global Change Institute 22. Amway's partners included the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the United Nations Environment Programme, and the Windstar (John Denver) Foundation. AGCI focus is on environmental change.

"...AGCI convenes interdisciplinary meetings of the world's leading scientists, enabling them to work together at the cutting edge of a variety of topics of critical importance in the global change arena. The goal of these meetings is not only to further scientific understanding across disciplines, but also to serve as a catalyst for researchers to collaborate on new work. AGCI is also committed to linking global change science at its most advanced levels with education at the kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) level. AGCI's Ground Truth Studies (GTS) curriculum is now used in over 750 schools in the United States and Canada. GTS is an activity-based science education program that integrates local environmental issues with global change topics and introduces the exciting tool of remote sensing to students in elementary and secondary schools. By studying aerial and satellite images of their own region, students gain new skills and insights into both local and global scale change. Students also engage in hands-on field measurements to "ground truth" or validate remotely sensed data." "Other educational efforts of AGCI include EarthPulse NEWS, an electronic global change update for educators and EarthPulse Notes, a resource of current article summaries on a wide variety of global change topics."23  AGCI also focuses on population control."

AGCI's, whose webpage address begins with "www.gcrio," has it's EarthPulse News developed in partnership  with 24 "The US Global Change Research Information Office (GCRIO) 25. provides access to data and information on global environmental change research, adaptation/mitigation strategies and technologies, and global change related educational resources on behalf of the US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) 26. and its participating Federal Agencies and Organizations. GCRIO is implemented by The Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN 27.) at Columbia University."

Answering an email query about the Aspen Global Change Institute AGCI, concerning any relationship to Aspen Institute, an entirely different group with global change on it's mind, the AGCI response was  "not really related" and " We are very interested in each other's work and have been known to cooperate on logistical matters." 28 

James Spiegelman, director of Public Affairs of Aspen Institute, wrote, " We have no relationship whatever to the Aspen Global Change Institute..." 29  

It should be noted that Aspen Institute does have CNP members connected to it as well and is discussed in other biographies.

"In the last election, Amway gave more to the GOP than any other company, including an unprecedented $2.5 million in soft money. DeVos and his wife Helen are also major contributors to Newt Gingrich and GOPAC...In 1989, the company spent a jaw-dropping $38.1 million to settle a suit by Canada's trade office that accused the company of undervaluing merchandise to escape customs duties. This topped a $25 million fine from the province of Ontario in 1983, after Amway pleaded guilty to criminal fraud..." 30   Footnotes 18-30

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

24 yrs as Associate of Pediatrics, USC School of Medicine. Founder and President of Focus on the Family. Honorary doctorate degrees from such schools as Biola University, Pepperdine University (1983), Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio [a Catholic university] (1988), Seattle Pacific University (1988), Asbury Theological Seminary (1989), Mid America Nazarene College (1992), and Liberty University (1993).;  received numerous honors including, the Humanitarian Award from the California State Psychological Assn.;  The Catholic Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio, bestowed an honorary doctorate upon him as a statement of their support for Focus on the Family (Evangelical Catholics, p. 200). The September 1990, issue of New Covenant, a Catholic charismatic magazine, featured Dobson and a very positive report on Focus on the Family.

FOTF has 35 affiliated political groups in 35 states under the direction of extremely strong grass roots lobbies. About 4% of FOTF's annual budget is devoted to public policy projects, voter education, and lobbying (i.e., over $4 million!). Dobson himself has served in a variety of consulting capacities to the Carter, Reagan, and Bush administrations, and was nominated by (then) Senate majority leader Bob Dole to the Presidential Commission on Child and Family Welfare in the Clinton administration; he received the loving attention of virtually all of the 1996 Republican presidential candidates, although he has been virtually ignored by George W. Bush's 2000 Campaign. 35. 

One former employee of Focus on the Family has coined the term "Dobsonology":

"Dobsonology is a mixture of psychology, humanism, New Age, political activism and ecumenism packed in a silver box of morality; it is tied with a golden ribbon of assorted Scriptures -- not necessarily in context. It is being sold to the Christian Community in lieu of Biblical authority through sound doctrine by James Dobson and his Focus On The Family Organization." 36

In the late 1980s, Dobson helped form the Religious Alliance Against Pornography which included Roman Catholic priests and bishops. The 1986 meeting was held in St. Patrick's Cathedral. Dobson praised the unity which was present at that meeting and stated that "there has been great camaraderie among the top leaders of virtually all religious groups" in the U.S. (1/87, Focus on the Family). Of this alliance Jerry Kirk said, "Never before have we seen Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Greek Orthodox and (Mormon) leaders come together in such agreement and cooperation on an issue." Also represented at the meeting were the National Association of Evangelicals [See: Fuller> The Original Five] National Council of Churches, the Southern Baptist Convention 37 and Charismatics. A Catholic archbishop called the alliance "an ecumenical miracle" (8/22/98, FBIS)." 38 

Dobson has frequently welcomed Roman Catholics and Mormons on his radio show, welcoming all as members of "the family of God." In late 1989, Dobson offered a calendar with a peculiarly Mormon slogan, "Families Are Forever," which summarizes the Mormon doctrine of eternal progression of Mormon "temple-sealed" families (4/15/91, Calvary Contender 39.). Dobson is also the possessor of an honorary doctorate from the Roman Catholic (Franciscan) University of Steubenville in Ohio, and was featured in a 9/90 five-page article (with cover photo) in the Catholic charismatic magazine New Covenant. (Reported in The Fundamentalist Digest, November-December 1991.) 40  For Mormons See: James Trimm as Rabbi Yosef

In the 11/89 issue of FOTF's Clubhouse magazine for children, a smiling "Mother" Teresa was on the cover, and the lead article was entitled, "Teresa of Calcutta: Little Woman with a Big Heart." The readers of this magazine were made to think that Mother Teresa was a genuine New Testament Christian and that she was doing a great work for God through her Sisters of Charities mission. "Mother" Teresa was, in reality, a New Age pantheist who considered Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and other religions all to be acceptable ways to God. 41

Protestant-turned-Catholic Scott Hahn, a theology professor at Franciscan University, and a very popular guest on evangelical radio programs across the country, began one interview by gushing over the fact that his Catholic school has impressed leading evangelicals James Dobson and Chuck Colson. He quoted Dobson as noting that "he had never seen a campus where the students take the Lordship of Jesus Christ so seriously." Hahn then added that Colson had nominated the Catholic university for membership in the Evangelical College Coalition because, "it really is a dynamic orthodox Catholic university that is as evangelical as it is Catholic." (Source: Scott Hahn interview, "Pittsburgh Talks," WORD-FM; as reported in the 4/96, The Berean Call.) 42 

Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, a Roman Catholic psychotherapist, was a major speaker at a November 1998 conference sponsored by James Dobson's Focus on the Family organization. Dobson held two more conferences in 1999 (on 8/14/99 and 11/6/99) in which Nicolosi was again featured. 43.

Signed 1993 Covenant of Mutual Respect responding to objections of Catholic and Jewish leaders in Colorado Springs that "Jewish and Catholic youth were being evangelized at school." In this covenant the parties agreed to respect one another's diverse beliefs and to avoid "polarization" Signers included Focus on the Family, Young Life, International Students, Inc., and the Navigators and others.

In 1989 Focus on the Family vice president Rolf Zettersten testified: "One of the striking first impressions I had when I came to Focus on the Family seven years ago was the diversity of denominations represented by my co-workers" (Focus on the Family, December 1988). He said: "I joined the Nazarenes, Presbyterians, Baptists, and Charismatics (& many other denominations) who had cast their theological distinctives aside in order to achieve a common objective--to help families."

Bill Bright fasted 40 days during the summer of 1994, 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 12/5/94-12/7/94 to fast and pray for revival. An Invitation Committee made up of a hodgepodge of 72 liberals, new evangelicals, and charismatics was formed. Included were: Robert Schuller, Charles Colson, E.V. Hill, Jack Hayford, James Dobson, W.A. Criswell, Charles Stanley, Paul Crouch, Luis Palau, Bill Gothard, Pat Robertson, Kay Arthur, and Larry Burkett. 44.

(Terry) Dolan, then chair of the National Conservative Political Action Committee (NCPAC). Terry Dolan stated that the secret of fundraising is to try to "make them angry and stir up hostilities. The shriller you are, the easier it is to raise funds. That's the nature of the beast." 46 

Coalition for Religious Freedom [CRF] 47: Started by Rep. George Hansen in 1984. CRF Executive committee members have included Tim LaHaye , Jerry Falwell, James Robison; Rex Humbard, D.

"...June 30, 1978, came from John T. "Terry" Dolan of the National Conservative Political Action Committee (NCPAC). Dolan's group was pioneering the strategy of "independent" TV attack ads which smeared liberal Democrats. In turn, Moon's CAUSA International helped Dolan by contributing $500,000 to a Dolan group, known as the Conservative Alliance or CALL. 49 With support from Dolan and others, Moon weathered the Koreagate political storm. 50. 

Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) 51. was founded in 1960. Alumni of YAF include William F. Buckley, a founder; Richard Viguerie, right-wing direct mail guru; Howard K  Phillips, head of the Conservative Caucus; and John T. (Terry) Dolan, who headed the National Conservative Political Action Committee (NCPAC). 

"The effort to build bridges between secular and religious conservatives was spearheaded by four activists with no background in the Christian Right community: Howard Phillips of the Conservative Caucus; John "Terry" Dolan of the National Conservative Political Action Committee (NCPAC); Paul Weyrich of the National Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress; and Richard Viguerie, a major fund-raiser for conservative causes. The basis for coalition would be a frontal attack on "big government" as a threat to traditional religious and economic values. In response, the National Christian Action Coalition, the first national organization of the Christian Right, was launched in 1978. Television evangelist Jerry Falwell organized the most prominent of the new organizations, Moral Majority, in 1979. To reach into the Southern Baptist Convention, Ed McAteer started the Religious Roundtable, while Christian Voice, composed primarily of members of the Assemblies of God, concentrated on the western states." 52   Footnotes 45-52

Freedom House and it's history/associations 62: CNP's Alan Keyes received his Ph.D. in Government Affairs in 1979 from Harvard, where his roommate was William Kristol, [Bilderberger] editor and publisher of The Weekly Standard, an influential journal of politics and ideas published in Washington, D. C. William Kristol ran Alan Keyes' 1988 Senate Campaign in Maryland. The Weekly Standard Deputy Editor is John Podhoretz. John's dad... Norman Podhoretz is a member of the CFR and his mother, Midge Decter, is a vice president of the Socialist League for Industrial Democracy 63  In 1985 William Kristol was hired by Bill Bennett 64 to serve in the federal Department of Education, where he quickly rose to chief of staff. He has served as chairman of the Project for the Republican Future from 1993 to 1994 and as the director of the Bradley Project on the '90s at the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee in 1993. (from Board of Visitors page at George Mason University. 65.). 

William Kristol's father, Irving Kristol, (CFR-lifetime member) joined the Young People's Socialist League in the 30s. 66. 

In 1953 Irving Kristol founded and was editor of  the magazine "Encounter" in England, which was secretly supported by the CIA. It ran articles for Fabian Socialist and Bilderberger Huge Gaitskell, head of the Labor Party. 67  Irving co-founded, in 1965, with Daniel Bell, (CFR) "The Public Interest" Magazine. 68.

Freedom House was run by George Field who was chairman of the Rand School for Social Science owned by the American Socialist Society. 70. 

Daniel Bell, Kristols partner, also belonged to the Young Socialist League 71  and was a director for the League for Industrial Democracy , which was the American equivalent of the Fabian Society. Previous to 1921, it was named the Intercollegiate Socialist Society, 72  it's goals to advance the ideas of Marxism.  Upton Sinclair and Jack London founded ISS in 1905 and Upton later founded the American Civil Liberties Union of California. Among the activities pursued by the League were research, lecture and information services, and development of plans for increasing social control. Jeane Kirkpatrick's name was on the letterhead of the League for Industrial Democracy until recently.

Intercollegiate Socialist Society, as stated, was organized by Upton Sinclair, Jack London and also Clarence Darrow, John Dewey and others. It's permanent headquarters was at the Rand School of Social Science in 1908, with the name changed to League for Industrial Democracy, and whose 1935 president was John Dewey. 73.  

Like Kristol, Danel Bell was subsidized by the CIA through the Congress for Cultural Freedom of which Bell was a leader. Irving Kristol's partner Daniel Bell has suggested that we do away with state boundaries and most local government. That is not surprising since he was a member of the Institute for American Democracy, an offshoot of the  Anti Defamation League (ADL). 74. 

Kristol also co-founded Institute for Educational Affairs with William E. Simon  in 1978, "financial resources directed toward sympathetic scholars and the research projects of think tanks." According to John Saloma, the Institute for Educational Affairs has dispensed more than $2.5 million in grants to academics since 1979. 75

CNP's William E. Simon  is or was a trustee of the conservative think tank, the Heritage Foundation.(21) He is president of the Olin Foundation, a major funder of rightwing groups.(22). He ... was on the Council for National Policy,... Simon is a member of the elite, conservative, lay-Catholic group, the Knights of Malta -- an anticommunist group very active in Central America.(24) He headed the short-lived Nicaraguan Freedom Fund, a group founded specifically to provide assistance to the Nicaraguan contras.(19) He also served on the advisory committee for AmeriCares 76 , the major recipient of contra funds from the Nicaraguan Freedom Fund. AmeriCares not only supported the contras, but has been implicated in manipulation of the internal politics of Nicaragua.(25,26) Simon was a board member of the Friends of the Democratic Center in Central America (PRODEMCA), another member of the contra-support network.(27) Simon has been connected with other rightwing groups including the media watchdog, Accuracy in Media; the think tank, the American Enterprise Institute; and the lobby group, Committee for the Free World.(27, 28;) He is a member of the Center for Strategic and International Studies. 77 He is also a member of the CFR.

For ten years Daniel Bell worked for CFR's Henry C. Luce at Fortune magazine. In 1969, Irving Kristol was made the Henry R. Luce professor at New York University.  Freedom House's Bookshelf Program was run by Rex Stout who previously published New Masses, a Communist Weekly. Nelson Rockefeller gave Irving Kristol $100,000 through his Commission on Critical Choices for writing 15 short essays.  

National Affairs, Inc. is the organization that Kristol runs, which controls The Public Interest and The National Interest and publishes The National Interest and The Public Interest magazines. Henry Kissinger, Jeane Kirkpatrick and author Charles Murray are on the magazines' advisory boards. National Affairs, Inc. has received more than $4 million from the Bradley Foundation alone since 1986. 78

Jeanne Kirkpatrick is a member of the Trilateral Commission and the CFR. Evron, her husband was with the OSS, State Department and was Director of the Office of Intelligence Research. His specialty was behavioral science. Since 1954, he had been the executive director of the American Political Science Association. Reagan's National Security was made up of CFR George P. Schultz, CFR/T,  Henry Kissinger, CFR, William Casey, CFR/T Casper Weinberger, and CFR Gen. David Jones with David Rockefeller (Chairman of CFR/T) being an unofficial advisor. 

"El Slavador's...1932...General Maximiliano Hernandez Martinez crushed a peasant rebellion and slaughtered 30,000 Salvadorans. "It is a greater crime to kill an ant that a man, " Hernandez Martinez once said, "for when a man dies he becomes reincarnated, while an ant dies forever." El Salvador's contemporary death squads are heirs to the Hernandez Martinez legacy. Indeed, Jeane Kirkpatrick praised Hernandez Martinez as a "hero" in a 1981 paper for the American Enterprise Institute: "It is said 30,000 persons lost their lives...To many Salvadoreans the violence of this repression seems less important than the fact of restored order and the thirteen years of civil peace that ensued...The traditionalist death squads that pursue revolutionary activists and  and leaders in contemporary El Salvador call themselves Hernandez Martinez Brigades, seeking thereby to place themselves in El Salvador's political tradition and communicate their purpose." 79 

For many years Irving Kristol made his Washington base of operations at the American Enterprise Institute [AEI], which individuals include William Kristol,  Irving's son, former Dan Quayle handler; Robert BorkCharles Murray, Michael Novak, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Senior Fellow,  Dinesh D'Souza. A John M. Olin scholar at AEI.....  AEI  is funded by the Olin Foundation, Castle Rock Foundation, Sarah Scaife Foundation, Bradley Foundation, Scaife Family Foundation, and more. 80.

Michael Novak, "One AEI interest deserves special note, the Center for the Study of Religion Philosophy, and Public Policy and the related fields of democratic capitalism and mediating structures...AEI resident Scholar Michael Novak...has been pivotal in AEI's theological and religious outreach program. Novak's columns appear regularly in the National Catholic Reporter and he is active in the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights..." 81 


Irving Kristol is on advisory board of National Association of Scholars (NAS) as is Jean Kirkpatrick., who is also on the board of Empower America.. with Jack Kemp, who is Co-director, along with William Bennett, Jeanne Kirkpatrick and Vin Weber, who is co-director of the Aspen Institute’s Domestic Strategy Group. Bilderberger William Kristol joined with CFR member Vin Weber in forming Empower America in 1991. Advisory board of NAS also includes Chester Finn of Hudson and Edison Project. Finn is a also currently a John M. Olin Fellow at the Manhattan Institute (he was formerly with the Hudson Institute 1998). 82 

The Manhattan Institute was founded in 1978 by William Casey, who later became director of the Central Intelligence Agency. 83. 

The Edison Project is Part of Goals 2000. Edison Project is an initiative to build a national, private, for-profit school system. Time-Warner is full partner in the Project. Other partners and financiers include Phillips Electronics and Associated Newspaper Holdings which spent $60 million for the 3 year study. Team Members included Chester E. Finn who had been Reagan's Secretary of Education, and John Chubb of Brookings Institution and Center for Education and Innovation. Chubb was a leader in selling the idea of the Voucher system. Brookings prepared a report entitled "Education for Social Change". It has also been involved with the Global Interdependence Center (GIC), founded in Philadelphia in 1976, which produced the Declaration of Interdependence with project funding from the Rockefeller Foundation....the Board of the GIC convened two which representatives from the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the European Economic Communities, the Federal Reserve, the Organization of American States, the Institute for International Economics and Brookings Institution were a result...[the paper] International Economic Policy: A Proposal for Reform, written by ...Klein...Heebner, and Robert Soloman, "A Guest scholar at Brookings Institution...with the Federal Reserve board for 28 years...and recipient of the Rockefeller Public Service Award..." 85.

The Edison Project became "Edison Schools, founded in 1992 as The Edison Project, is the country's leading private manager of public schools. Edison has now implemented its school design in 113 public schools, including many charter schools, which it operates under management contracts with local school districts and charter boards. More than 57,000 students currently attend Edison partnership schools." 86. ; Center for Education Reform 87.

" 1964...The Institute of Educational Leadership is formed to develop educational leaders in the U.S. On its Board of Directors...Donna Shalala...a member of the CFR, Trilateral Commission, on the Board of Directors of the Committee for Economic Development, and will become President Clinton's Secretary of Health and Human Services...On IEL's National Advisory Board will be...Francis Keppel, who will be Director of the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies Education Program...IEL"s supporters will include the NEA,...the Carnegie, IBM, and Xerox Corporations...and the Rockefeller Foundations; Aspen Institute; U.S. Department of Education and Health and Human Services; Time Warner Inc: and Lilly Endowment." 88  

Benno C. Schmidt , Jr. joined Chris Whittle on the Edison Project, to "create a national system of private schools...[he] is associated with the Aspen Institute. 89 

National Association of Scholars received $125,000 from the Olin Foundation in 1994; Bradley granted $378,000 between 1990 and 1992 and authorized a two-year, $150,000 grant in 1994; the Scaife Foundations have contributed more than $400,000 in recent years; and the Adolph Coors, J.M. and Smith Richardson foundations are also regular contributors. 90. 

Smith Richardson foundation, under President R. Randolph Richardson, made it's mark by bankrolling an idea. "the foundation has become the source of funding in the supply-side became the place to go if you have a project that needs money." In 1975, Richardson asked Irving Kristol to help him recruit new staff for the Smith Richardson Foundation. Nathan Glazer, Kristol's co-editor at The Public Interest (funded in part by Richard Scaife) told Kristol about...Leslie Lenkowsky...Welles also credited Wanniski with converting Kristol to the supply-side faith, as well as Robert L. Bartley, his boss at The Wall Street Journal editorial page, Congressman Jack Kemp , and (through his aide, Jeffrey Bell,) candidate Ronald Reagan ....Smith Richardson made numerous grants for developing supply-side theory to groups like AEI, Heritage, Martin Feldstein's National Bureau of Economic Research and the Lehrman Institute [ "Lew" Lehrman ]..." 91

Irving Kristol wrote, "Though the educational establishment would rather die that admit it, multiculturalism is a desperate -- and surely self-defeating -- strategy for coping with the educational deficiencies, and associated social pathologies, of young blacks. Did these black students and their problems not exists, we would hear little of multiculturalism."
