In response, the chairman of WACL, retired U.S. Major General John K. Singlaub, enlisted the help of Reed Irvine. In a letter dated January 30, 1984, to Irvine, Singlaub said that: "Any help that you can give us in obtaining a retraction from Jack Anderson for that part of his articles which link WACL with the death squad activity (in El Salvador) will be greatly appreciated. If a retraction is not possible, I would appreciate your assistance in neutralizing the negative impact of these articles." No retraction was made according to the author of this source.

Bernard Yoh contributes regularly to the Unification Church publication Rising Tide and is a strong supporter of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon and the South Korean government. 7   Footnotes 1-7

Hon. Ernest J. Istook, Jr. - CNP 1996, 1999;  member, U.S. House of Representatives, Oklahoma, since 1992; serves on the Appropriations Committee and the House Republican Policy Committee; "100 percent pro­family voting record," Christian Coalition; "100 percent pro­business, pro­jobs voting record," National Federation of Independent Business; "100 percent free­enterprise voting record," U.S. Chamber of Commerce; director, Warr/Acres Putnam City Chamber of Commerce; scoutmaster, Boy Scouts of America; attorney, private law practice, 1978­1992; former Oklahoma State Representative; Assistant Legal Counsel to Governor David Boren, 1978; former director, Oklahoma Alcoholic Beverage Control.

Sponsored the Religious Freedom Amendment (H.J. Res. 78), was defeated in the House of Representatives by a vote of 224 to 203 - a majority but 61 votes short of the two-thirds necessary to pass a constitutional amendment. H.J. Res. 78 would have permitted, not only school prayer, but religious symbols on public property and the use of tax money for religious activities. The Christian Legal Society withheld its support for Istook’s proposal and expressed concern that the language would permit government preference of a specific religion:

"CLS differs with Mr. Istook on the issue of government 'recognition' of religion. CLS opposes conferring on government the constitutional authority 'to pray and to recognize [the people's] religious beliefs, heritage of traditions on public property.' at the July 22 hearing before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Mr. Istook conceded that the first sentence of his proposed Religious Freedom Amendment is intended to confer on government, not just individuals and groups, this power to pray and to recognize religion...Mr. Istook's March 24, 1997, press release cites examples of the kinds of court decisions he wants to reverse; Most are cases where governments (not private citizens or churches) were endorsing one religion over another. (e.g., city-owned cross in a park). Under this interpretation, intended by its framers, the RFA would effectively rescind much of the protections of the First Amendment by permitting the state and federal governments to use their power and purse to propagate religious messages on a preferential basis." 8    Footnotes 8

It has worked closely with liberal denomination leaders and, e.g., Catholic Youth Services, its theological approach is “friendship evangelism,” working outside the church “because it reaches teens who [mostly] do not attend services or do so only because of parental insistence.” Young Life joined with Fuller Theological Seminary to establish the Institute of Youth Ministries in 1970. Volunteer leadership began at Wheaton College, Illinois, in the late 1940s.  Liberal Fuller Seminary professor Paul King Jewett listed himself as the Dean of the Young Life Institute 11  Footnotes 10-11

Gary Jarmin - CNP 1984-85, 1988, 1996, 1998; president, Jar-Mon Consultants, Inc;  Legislative Director, Christian Voice, a front for the Unification Church; Lobbyist and political consultant in Washington, D.C.; President of Jar-Mon Consultants, Inc., a firm specializing in political activism, election campaigns and foreign policy matters in East Asia; designed and directed registration drive in 1884 for American Coalition for Traditional Values; Chaired Christians for Reagan campaign in 1980 and 1984;

Former leader of the Student Alliance for Education, former secretary general of Moon's Freedom Leadership Foundation; 1975 worked for American Conservative Union, a senior group founded by Young Americans for Freedom, stayed as legislative director four years. 18  Knew Moon since 1969.

"Christian Voice pioneered the use of 'moral report cards' to rate Congressional and presidential candidates on issues from abortion to sanctions against Rhodesia. The organization was started in California in 1976 under the name Citizens United. In August 1978, the group changed its name to American Christians United and in October 1978 to Christian Voice, Inc. The original Christian Voice directorate consisted of Rev. Robert Grant, a graduate of Rev. Steuart McBirnie's California Institute of Theology, Gary Jarmin, a long time right-wing lobbyist and former disciple of Rev. Sun Myung Moon, and Colonel Donor (Colonel is his first name, not a military title)...In 1988, an investigative news feature on CBS' 'West 57th" documented McBirnie's history of fraudulent financial dealings and featured elderly followers whom he has allegedly swindled by refusing to pay thousands of dollars of loans."

"In 1987, leaders of the Christian Right formed the American Freedom Coalition (AFC)...Robert Grant [was] an AFC founder and president of Christian Voice. With initial funding from the Unification Church, the AFC signified a merger between about 30 Christian Voice field organizers and the state representatives of Moon's American Constitution Committee. At the August 1987 kick-off rally for the American Freedom Coalition in Washington, D.C., Moon's top aide Bo Hi Pak praised the 'marriage' between Christian Voice and the American Constitution Committee and said it 'shows what a great sense of humor God has.'

"As with other Moonie-influenced New Right projects, the AFC was organized in such a way as to obscure Moonie domination. The original officers included Christian Voice President, Robert Grant, black civil rights leader Ralph Abernathy, Richard Viguerie, and Richard Ichord (D-MO) and Bob Wilson (R-CA). After their poor results in the 1986 Congressional elections, Christian Voice leaders, Colonel Doner, Robert Grant and Gary Jarmin had concluded that Christians alone could not steer the country rightward. To be politically effective, they argued, Christians would have to be 'unequally yoked' with non-believers and even enemies of Christianity...

"In May 1988, Grant was invited as the keynote speaker for the annual conference of the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations (ABN), which included many of the same anti-Semitic East European emigre groups recruited by (CNP's ) David Balsiger's RAMBO Coalition . With headquarters in Munich and chapters throughout Europe and the United States, the ABN is nostalgic for the days when the Nazis occupied Eastern Europe. Scott Anderson and John Lee Anderson, authors of Inside the League, describe the 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.' Grant's public association with Nazi sympathizers drew no storm of criticism from fellow evangelicals." 19  

Colonel Doner, responding to reporters about Moonie financing of the Christian Right and AFC, stated " CAUSA [Moon's political arm] is an anticommunist organization. It's a funding source. CAUSA is anticommunist and personally I'm for anybody that's anticommunist. The Mormons are the same. I'm not going to lend credence to their organization, but networking, I'm happy to network with them." 20 

Colonel Doner is Director  of  Dennis Peacocke's Coalition on Revival (COR) which Jay Grimstead heads. Peacocke was a disciple of Bob Mumford and his shepherding movement. Colonel Doner  has also been on the executive of Peacocke's charismatic Anatole Fellowship, whose goal is to gain  influence in the Republican Party. Other executive committee members have included CNP's David Balsiger and Connie Marshner  , who represents Paul Weyrich's Free Congress Foundation. 21  

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

Christian Voice, which claims to be the nation's largest conservative Christian lobby, secretly joined forces with the Unification Church [in August 1987], according to documents obtained by the Philadelphia Inquirer. Together they mobilized grassroots conservative activists nationwide, hoping either to move the Republican Party rightward or build a new hard-right U.S. political party. Behind this large, well-heeled alliance, called the American Freedom Coalition, is conservative strategist and fund-raising genius [CNP's] Richard Viguerie, rescued from the brink of bankruptcy in October by Bo Hi Pak, a former Korean military-intelligence officer and Moon's top U.S. operative. [CNP's] Rev. Robert Grant, chairman of the coalition, initially denied, then confirmed links between his traditional Christians and the Moonies. A main source of the Moon money involved "hundreds of millions, Moon said in 1984" seems to be Japan. A national bar association panel there reported in July that a church - organized high-pressure sales scheme had bilked Japanese consumers out of at least $165 million since 1980, terming that sum only the "tip of the iceberg.'' 22 

Dr. Bo Hi Pak's 60th Birthday Celebration, Washington, D.C., August 26, 1990, "...Dr. Pak uses the occasion of his 60th birthday celebration to give his heartfelt thanks to several people in attendance, including Congressman Ichord, Dr. Bob Grant, Ambassador Sang Kook Han, Ambassador Phillip Sanchez and his wife, and Gary Jarmin...... 23 "

"Now I want to speak about Dr. Bob Grant. Dr. Grant's primary mission nowadays is not leading AFC. His primary mission is to speak to visiting Korean groups... The other day I joked with him, and I told him, the Korean public is waiting for you, Dr. Grant. ... They want you to come to Korea to run for the presidency. You have created a big constituency. There is a certain truth to it. Dr. Grant is becoming very popular among Korean intellectuals and leaders of Korea. But the more important thing is this: Dr. Grant never once complained or excused himself, never once. Speaking to these groups is an additional duty. He knows Reverend Moon wants him to do it, and that is good enough for him. He is giving his heart and soul, day in and day out, pouring out his message, teaching about America to these Korean people. No one is telling the truth about America like Reverend Bob Grant does. But he loves America. He is confident. He is a man of positive thinking. He is a man of love."

"Now when the regional directors come, you usually come to his home. His basement has become a conclave of our AFC regional directors. He loves to have our people come into his home and use it and occupy it. The other day I said, bless him who understands that the kingdom of God is the kingdom of use. He is using every bit of everything he has for the sake of goodness. Of course, Judy, his lovely bride (I know she is still a bride because I was at their wedding in Palm Springs, California), supports him completely."

"Bob Grant knows Reverend Moon loves him and expects him to accomplish great things. Reverend Moon knows he is a great leader and even wants him to become president of the United States. Dr. Grant said, no, no, I was born in Canada. Impossible. The Constitution does not allow me to run for the presidency. Reverend Moon simply said, let's change the Constitution. My only birthday plea to Dr. Bob Grant is this. I know Dr. Grant loves Jesus Christ. He is a tremendous man of God and man of Christ. But I want to tell him I used to think that way too. I was already a Christian for five years before I became a Unification Church member. I thought joining the Unification Church was in some way a betrayal of Jesus Christ. I am sure all those Jesus-loving ministers have that instinct."

"But in my life of Divine Principle over 30-some years, I have come to the realization that Jesus and Reverend Moon are one. Jesus in heaven is sweating and laboring to see to it that Reverend Moon's mission here on earth is successful. That is the way Jesus' mission shall be fulfilled. This most poignant realization came to me: Jesus and Reverend Moon are one. As much as Elijah and John the Baptist were one...." 24  

Korean Committee for Peace in Asia and the Pacific from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to Washington, D.C. 25  Robert Grant and Gary Jarmin in attendance.(1995)

America, Your Time Has Come, Washington, DC, November 13, 1988 "...Dr. Pak speaks intimately and with great pride to all the American Freedom Coalition and American Constitutional Committee leaders after pledge service.." Grant and Jarmin gave reports as leaders. 26 

Gary Jarmin is/was on the steering committee of National Parents Day Foundation, which is based with the American Freedom Coalition, mentioned above. Robert Grant is/was president of National Parents Day Foundation. Parents Day was established as a response to a Moonie holiday, promoted by Rev. and Mrs. Moon as the "True Parents of Mankind."  Footnotes 19-26

"There have been allegations that [Friends of the Americas] FOA has assisted the Nicaraguan Contra forces...directly. Key contra leaders identified CAUSA (associated with the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church) and FOA as the principal sources of their supplies in 1984....

Anderson reported, "It became clear that the Friends of the Americas contingent, which included an assistant to [Sen. Jeremiah] Denton, was involved with more than simple refugee relief. Uniformed MISURA guerrillas with rifles slung on their backs stood guard at the airstrip as the DC-3's cargo was unloaded. Rebel jeeps shuttled the supplies to refugee camps located in the vicinity of the MISURA military camps.".. MISURA has also used FOA's radios and airplanes..." ...Woody Jenkins was introduced to the contra cause by Dr. Alton Oschner, head of the Caribbean Commission.

Founded in 1950, the Aspen Institute is a non-profit organization with offices in Aspen, Colorado; Chicago, Illinois; New York, New York; Queenstown, Maryland; Santa Barbara, California; and Washington, D.C.

The Aspen Institute operates internationally through a network of partners in Europe and Asia. The Aspen Strategy Group, founded in 1984, is a bipartisan group of former and current senior foreign and defense policymakers.  54 

Aspen Institute was founded by Chicago businessman Walter Paepcke (1896-1960), "The Aspen Institute is a global forum for leveraging the power of leaders to improve the human condition. Through its seminar and policy programs, the Institute fosters enlightened, morally responsible leadership and convenes leaders and policy makers to address the foremost challenges of the new century" Paepcke was a trustee of the University of Chicago, and his participation in its Great Books seminar inspired the Institute’s Executive Seminar. In 1950, Philosopher Mortimer J. Adler lead the first “Great Books” seminar, and participants include Claire Booth Luce, Meredith Wilson and Karl Menninger. The Great Books Seminar was renamed the “Executive Seminar” at the suggestion of Henry Luce.  The seminar is a forum based on the writings of great thinkers of the past and present..." In 1970 Aspen held an international conference on “Technology: Social Goals and Cultural Options” which helped launch the International Institute for Environmental Affairs and prepared the basis for the 1972 Stockholm UN Conference on the Human Environment, which launched the first “Earth Day.” In 1978, a seminar on “Monotheism and Moderation” brought together Christians, Jews, and Moslems to discuss their similarities and differences. 55  

The Institute supports 15 policy programs directed by leading policymakers and practitioners. The programs explore topics such as international peace and security, democracy and citizenship; economic opportunity; social innovation through business; the nonprofit sector; and community initiatives for children and families."

According to John Coleman, Aspen Institute is an extension of  The Committee of 300.  "One of the principal Committee of 300 assets in the U.S. is the Aspen Institute of Colorado, which helped plan events in Argentina even as it did in the case of the fall of the Shah of Iran. Latin America is important to the United States, not only because we have so many mutual defense treaties with countries there, but also because it has the potential of providing a huge market for American exports of technology, heavy industrial equipment which world have galvanized many of our faltering companies and provided thousands of new jobs. This was to be prevented all costs, even if it meant 30 years of war...The demise of the Shah of Iran was run to a plan devised by Bernard Levin and Richard Falk, and supervised by Robert Anderson's Aspen Institute." 61 

"...the Union of Concerned Scientists, set up by the Trilateral Commission, and funded by the Carnegie Endowment Fund, the Ford Foundation and Aspen Institute." 62

Robert Anderson served as chairman of the Aspen Institute of Humanistic Studies 64  known as Aspen Institute for twenty years and is currently Honorary Chairman.

"A Web site ( maintained by family survivors of Amir Abbas Hoveyda, the prime minister of Iran from the mid-1960s until a few months before the overthrow of the Shah in 1978, alleges that the Aspen Institute played a key role in setting off the fundamentalist Islamic revolution in that country. The Web site cites comments by Robert Dreyfus in his 1980 book “Hostage to Khomeini” alleging that an Institute- sponsored symposium in Persepolis, Iran, in September 1975, gave the religious radicals under Ayatollah Khomeini the signals they needed to pursue their revolution.

“In the behind-the-scenes discussion, the plans for reversing the Shah’s industrialization program and for turning Iran into a model dark ages regime were mapped out. It is a bitter twist of history, that the Shah and his wife Empress Farah Diba witlessly provided huge amounts of funding to the Aspen project,” Dreyfus wrote. ...What the Web site fails to do is elaborate on why R.O. Anderson, then chief executive officer of one of the largest oil companies in the world, would want to replace a regime that was friendly to Western oil producers with an unpredictable fundamentalist who was calling for the expulsion of the Great White Devil." 66
