"...was fined $ 36,000 by California's election watchdog agency, the Fair Political Practices Commission, for failing to maintain proper and file timely financial reports from three different political front organizations in which he was involved, the Free Market PAC, Citizens for Responsible Representation, and Fund for a Responsible Legislature. In some cases he was as late as nineteen months in filing the documents...He, along with the late Terry Dolan [CNP], a closeted gay man, was a co-founder of the 1980s National Political Action Committee which raised millions to bring Ronald Reagan to the Presidency and a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate. He managed California Assembly Woman [CNP's] Barbara  Alby's (AD-5, R-Orangevale) successful special election effort...closely associated with other California members of the Council for National Policy such as Howard Ahmanson, Jr., heir to the Home Savings fortune, container manufacturer Rob Hurtt, Jr., exporter Richard  Riddle , magazine publisher Roland Hinz, and Christian radio mogul Edward Atsinger III in their efforts through the Allied/Independent Business PAC to elect a Theocratic majority to the state legislature....Project Tocsin is in possession of a video tape made in a candidate forum sponsored by the Capitol Resource Institute, the Focus on the Family policy group in California, where Saracino urged candidates not to thump people over the head with their Bible but to keep their religious affiliations as quiet as possible." 3   Footnotes 2-3

Richard M. Scaife - not an official CNP member by the directories, but definitely a funder of many in the CNP; member, board of trustees, Heritage Foundation 4 since 1985; owner and chairman, Tribune-Review; director, Pittsburgh World Affairs Council; board member, Hoover Institution 5; board member, Pepperdine University; chair, Sarah Scaife Foundation 6; chair, Allegheny Foundation; chair, Carthage Foundation; Scaife’s three foundations have for years supported The Heritage Foundation, Paul Weyrich’s Free Congress Foundation and others; was a member of the Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy, the citizens' advisory panel for the U.S. Information Agency, from 1984 to 1990. Edwin J. Feulner, Jr of the Heritage Foundation was chairman. American Enterprise Institute 7,  is funded by the Olin Foundation, Castle Rock Foundation, Sarah Scaife Foundation, Bradley Foundation, Scaife Family Foundation, and more. 8 

In 1997 the Scaife Foundations 9 gave Free Congress Foundation $1,670,000; by 1988 Scaife was the top lifetime donor to FCF, with a total of $7,014,000." Scaife split the FCF funding between two of their publicized foundations: Sarah Scaife Foundation and the Carthage Foundation. 

Heritage Foundation, received approx. $3.5 million, $1.22 million to the American Enterprise Institute. $1.40 million to Stanford University's Hoover Institution.$325,000 to the Cato Institute. Hollywood's Center for the Study of Public Culture, got nearly $1.8 million. Accuracy in Media, a group still promoting the idea that Clinton aide Vince Foster may have been murdered, got $675,000.Scaife has given nearly $13 million over the last 36 years to Pepperdine University, $575,000 to the Citizens for a Sound Economy, among others. 10 

John McGoff's partner in the newspaper business was Richard Mellon Scaife. What became know as 'Muldergate' was the funneling of money and purchasing of propaganda, amongst other things, in South Africa. Recipients of "Muldergate' money included the Unification Church..."about $4.5 million was funneled into the overseas enterprises of Rev. Sun Myung Moon in exchange for a substantial South African interest in the church-owned Washington Times..." Scaife  owned and operated Forum World Features, an international CIA news outlet that supplied over 300 newspapers until its exposure in 1975...providing the seed money for the Heritage Foundation and for the Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress. 11 

"....the two foundations most active in recent years in publicly promoting the need for a strong CIA. One of them, the Scaife Foundation (together with the closely linked Scaife Family Charitable Trusts and Allegheny Foundation) has provided the largest part of Fletcher's foundation backing since 1977, donating over $1.5 million. The other, the Smith Richardson Foundation, contributed over $100,000 from 1979 to 1981 for two projects it describes as a "project on [the] history of Vietnamese communism" and the "completion of [a] study of communist propaganda and political warfare." Since 1978, these two foundations have also provided most of the private funding to Pfaltzgraff's Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis, [IFPA] with Scaife alone donating over $500,000.

The promotional efforts of the CIA by these foundations, consisting so far of at least eleven separate projects together costing over $500,000, appear to have begun on October 30, 1978, when Scaife president Richard Larry phoned Ernest  Lefever [CNP] (an IFPA "research consultant") to ask if his Ethics and Public Policy Center at Georgetown University would supervise a study of media treatment of the CIA and the KGB. This work resulted in the pro-CIA collection by Lefever and Roy Godson, The CIA and the American Ethic." 12 

Roy Godson, A Georgetown University professor, was a member of the 1980 CIA transition team and has been a paid consultant to the USIA, the NSC and the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. He is Washington director of the National Strategy Information Center, which provided funding to Aruno Cruz. Godson has also been a paid advisor to the CIA-connected U.S. Youth Council, the parent of the International Youth Year Commission, which is assumed to be the "Intl. Youth Comm." named on the flow chart of North-supervised contra support entities... Godson solicited donations for North and the Nicaragua operation, at least once using the Heritage Foundation as a conduit." 13 Footnotes 4-13

Former Executive Director of the American Center for Law and Justice was Keith A. Fournier, a Deacon in the Roman Catholic Church who is now President of Catholic Alliance 41, whose purpose is to organize Catholics politically and "spreading the message of our shared Catholic faith."

"[Jew's for Jesus'] tactics are headstrong (sometimes confrontational) and evangelistic in nature; they are most famous for their "campaigns," during which they go out on the streets of major cities such as New York and distribute millions of "broadsides" (folded-over humorous tracts presenting the gospel in a Jewish manner). They also work in airports; in 1987, they won a unanimous Supreme Court decision protecting their First Amendment rights to distribute literature in government-run airports (the case was argued for JFJ by Jay Sekulow, who now heads the American Center for Law and Justice [ACLJ] in Virginia Beach, Virginia). 42 

From the Seek God article Ecumenical & Global Connections: from the Topic Cults section:

CNP's Jay  Sekulow, who appears frequently on CBN, is head of the American Center for Law and Justice [ACLJ] 43. Mr. Sekulow talks from time to time on his radio program about his affiliate, the  European Center for Law and Justice, [ECLJ] 44 of which Christ in Actions' board member, Joel Thornton, heads. In fact, not only is Jay Sekulow "Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ),... He is also Chief Counsel of the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ)" and it's Moscow affiliate, the Slavic Center for Law and Justice..[SCLJ] 45 Statements from former adherents of Christ in Action state Jay Sekulow is legal counsel to Denny Nissley. [For Nissley See: Scientology: AOG, CNP & Other Connections]

According to ACLJ History, "In 1990, [CNP's] Dr. "M.G." Pat Robertson, a Yale law school graduate, religious leader, entrepreneur, and concerned citizen, decided to act to undo the damage done by almost a century of liberal thinking and activism. He founded the American Center for Law and Justice."

The not-for-profit and educational organization, "...engages in litigation, provides legal services, renders advice and counsels clients, and supports attorneys who are involved in defending the religious and civil liberties of Americans."

"... a national network of attorneys who are committed to the defense of Judeo-Christian values. We also cooperate with other organizations that are committed to a similar mission, and serve the public through educational efforts regarding First Amendment and religious freedom issues as well as pro-family and pro-life concerns...." 

The European Center for Law and Justice 46 has it's history from Pat Robertson as well. The ECLJ opened its official headquarters in Strasbourg, France on July 2, 1998. In August, it opened an affiliate office in Moscow, which is called the Slavic Center for Law and Justice. 47

The website of the ECLJ provides a section called the History of the ECLJ 48 ~ "In 1997, Pat Robertson, President of the Christian Broadcasting Network and founder of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), Jay Alan Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ, Pat Monaghan, Joel Thornton, and Ben Bull felt that it was time to mobilize Christian lawyers internationally to protect the rights of believers to worship and share the message of Jesus Christ without fear of persecution or discrimination in Europe...  with renowned international human rights attorneys, they established the European Center for Law and Justice (ECLJ), a nonprofit law firm dedicated to the protection and defense of religious freedom in Europe...the ECLJ was born to safeguard and protect human rights and religious freedoms for people of faith in Europe. With the advent and expansion of the Council of Europe, religious freedoms in Europe are now guaranteed under the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. These rights include the fundamental right to freedom of worship and religious expression without discrimination or persecution. This is the law of the land in Europe. Together with the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights, 49 the ECLJ has located its headquarters in Strasbourg, France...." 

[For Monaghan, Thornton See: Scientology: AOG, CNP & Other Connections]

The ECJL works directly with The European Court of Human Rights 50 and The International Court of Justice.51

The European Court of Human Rights 52 historical background states:

"A. The European Convention on Human Rights of 1950

1. The Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms was drawn up within the Council of Europe. It was opened for signature in Rome on 4 November 1950 and entered into force in September 1953. The object of its authors was to take the first steps for the collective enforcement of certain of the rights stated in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948.

2. In addition to laying down a catalogue of civil and political rights and freedoms, the Convention set up a system of enforcement of the obligations entered into by Contracting States. Three institutions were entrusted with this responsibility: the European Commission of Human Rights (set up in 1954), the European Court of Human Rights (set up in 1959) and the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, the latter organ being composed of the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the member States or their representatives.

"...The new European Court of Human Rights came into operation on 1 November 1998 with the entry into force of Protocol No. 11. On 31 October 1998, the old Court had ceased to function."

The International Court of Justice, 53 is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations

"The International Court of Justice, which sits at The Hague, in the Netherlands, acts as a world court. It decides in accordance with international law disputes of a legal nature submitted to it by States, whilst in addition certain international organs and agencies are entitled to call upon it for advisory opinions. It was set up in 1945 under the Charter of the United Nations to be the principal judicial organ of the Organization, and its basic instrument, the Statute of the Court, forms an integral part of the Charter....'

That Christians are working directly with and for the United Nations should make each consider carefully, whether God promised that Christians would have religious or political freedom, and whether it is Biblical to deem that Christians will not face persecution through political or religious law. See: Persecution Free Christianity

As with other far-reaching connections of CNP members and their friends, this is just a brief review of how the apostasy spiderweb's it's way through organization after organization. One must consider if the "freedom" desired by the many is the freedom that we as Christians are to expect and in fact 'have a right to."

Duncan Sellars - CNP 1984, 1988; former vice Chairman, International Freedom Foundation [IFF]; director, Council on Southern Africa; Former director, The Conservative Caucus Research Analysis and Education Foundation; Editor African Intelligence Digest; One of the I.F.F.'s less endearing traits is its uncritical support of the white South African government; advisory board, Institute of East-West Dynamics.  SEE: UN Endorsement 54

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

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

"A member of the foundation's international board of directors disclosed that at least half of the foundation's money came from projects undertaken on behalf of South Africa's military intelligence, New York's Newsday reported in 1995 after a three-month investigation. And Colonel John Rolt, a South African army representative, confirmed that "the International Freedom Foundation was a former South African Defense 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 [IFF] was created in 1985 by [CNP's] Jack Abramoff, a conservative lobbyist who once represented the late Zairean dictator Mobutu Sese Seko. Abramoff and Duncan Sellars, who served as the foundation's chair, were both Burton campaign contributors but denied knowing about the South African funding, according to media reports in 1995.

"Abramoff said the foundation had been funded by hundreds of contributors in the US, Europe and Israel. Apartheid South Africa's last president, FW de Klerk, cut off funding for covert "political" operations in 1992 and the foundation folded in 1994..." 55 

IFF functioned as a propaganda arm for South African STRATCOM 56   directed against the African National Congress and the trade union confederation. 57 

RE: STRATCOM  "...General Viljoen had personally ordered the attacks on so-called "African National Congress Targets" including the blow up of suspected anti-apartheid activists and critics. As revealed by former spy Craig Williamson from classified State Security Council documents, Viljoen was also responsible for Stratcom (Strategic Communications), a covert organization involved in frame-ups, political assassinations, bombings, torture, covert propaganda and "dirty tricks campaigns"...(Stefaans Brummer, "The Web of Stratcoms", Weekly Mail and Guardian. 24 February 1995)." 58  

1992 : "...The Heritage Foundation 59 hasn't changed position on the U.N... There's been a change in the U.N., " says [CNP's] Burton Yale Pines, vice president of the Heritage Foundation and longtime head of the U.N.-baiting U.N. Assessment Project.  "Everything the new Secretary General has done -- the appointment of Governor Thornburgh as Under Secretary General, and the composition of the East European delegations -- means that the U.N. is no longer a forum for world Bolshevism and anti-Americanism," Pines told me...

"Joseph Verner Reed...a former Chase Manhattan vice president, was made Ambassador to Morocco by Reagan in 1981, and now has the job of organizing the U.N.'s fiftieth-anniversary celebrations. Reed has also joined Burton Pines on the executive committee of the Institute of East-West Dynamics, which in its own way encapsulates the new relationship between the U.N. and Washington. A nonprofit organization set up to promote profit, it offers training in free-market economic principles to the "economies in transition" in Eastern Europe. The institute ... secured an initial $250,000 grant from the United Nations Development Program, having been referred there by the State Department.

U.N.D.P. is the world's largest miltilateral development grant aid agency, .... this description in Barron's magazine by Christopher Whalen: "The so-called United Nations Development Programme seeks `development approaches that are ecologically sound, self-sustaining and equitable in their distribution of resources and opportunities,' meaning socialist by design and directed from the top down." Whalen, who works for The Whalen Company, a consulting firm, added, "A large number of senior UN officials are European Socialists, who still believe, despite the overwhelming weight of evidence to the contrary, that centralized economic control is getting a bum rap."

Whalen's blast might seem a bit ungrateful, given that his father, Richard Whalen, the head of The Whalen Company, is on the board of advisers of the Institute of East-West Dynamics. Father and son are listed as "public policy experts" by the Heritage Foundation.

The current sweetheart relationship between Heritage and the U.N. began last October, when a group of conservative Congressmen wrote to John Bolton, Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs, pointing out what sterling work the the Institute of East-West Dynamics is doing: "This private voluntary organization, with which you are familiar, is, in our opinion, at least as worthy a recipient of such funds as any other such U.N.-affiliated organizations." They asked him to grant the institute $2 million.

Bolton, an Ed Meese [CNP] disciple who led the campaign to withdraw U.S. membership from UNESCO, had no problem with the request...he congratulated U.N.D.P.'s administrator William Draper 3d for making the "initial contribution" of $250,000 to the institute...The key figure in all this is the president of the Institute of East-West Dynamics, Pedro Sanjuan, an American who has retired as Director of Political Affairs for the U.N. A former director of the conservative American Enterprise Institute's Hemispheric Center 60, Sanjuan was appointed Assistant Secretary of State for Insular Affairs by Reagan, after which he was given a job at the U.N. during Jeane Kirkpatrick's memorable time as U.S. ambassador...

"...he spent a lot of time in Washington, allegedly putting out fires with the Heritage Foundation, for [former Secretary General] Perez de Cuellar," adding, however, "it's funny, he always seemed to have a can of kerosene and a box of matches when he went." Sanjuan fulfills the almost obligatory qualification of disparaging U.N.D.P., which, he says in a recent article for the International Freedom Foundation journal laissez-faire, "seems to be a falling prey to the predominance of ideology over pragmatism." Sanjuan, a charming and plausible person, steered a resolution through the General Assembly of the U.N. last October that endorsed the work of the Institute of East-West Dynamics. He persuaded Eastern Europeans to propose it, and it passed without a the end of February Pedro Sanjuan retired from the U.N. -- and for many months the address and phone number for the Institute of East-West Dynamics had been his home in Westchester County, New York. When the organization is up and running he expects to be paid $85,000 a year for his services...

"...chairman of the institute is the Democrat Angier Biddle Duke, who was U.S. Ambassaor to El Salvador at a time when the United States was not noted for its restraining influence on the death squads. Duke was a member of PRODEMCA, which, The Washington Post reported in 1986, funded contra-associated groups in Nicaragua and helped pay for ads supporting Reagan's bid to fund military and "nonlethal" aid to the contras...on the advisory board is [CNP's] Duncan Sellars, chairman of the International Freedom Foundation...Sellars told The Nation, "The institute will fill a gap the U.N. has not filled hitherto. It will teach market methods, market economics. It's good to see groups like Pedro's channeling the U.N. in the right direction, especially if it takes funds that would otherwise be used to support traditional U.N.D.P. policies. U.N.D.P. does promote the `third way,' mixed economies. I don't think Pedro would, and I certainly wouldn't countenance that. The institute will balance that `third way' approach...On March 8 the institute, with its new badge of respectability, co-sponsored with the Heritage Foundation a conference at the U.N. to advise the new Baltic delegations on how they could best use the U.N. Billed as speakers were Duke, Sanjuan, and Burton Yale Pines....A session on how to use the media was addressed by Amity Shlaes, who wrote an article last October in The Wall Street Journal attacking U.N.D.P. because its budget "largely ignores East Europe's economic progress." She ended her speech by quoting Christopher Gacek, who at the time watched the U.N. for the Heritage Foundation but is currently with the American Enterprise Institute 61: "The danger now is that the U.N. is a rudderless place, and that it will remain rudderless." Gacek is also on the advisory board of the Institute of East-West Dynamics..." 62

Mises Institute, is a CNP/reconstructionist connected libertarian institute which esteems notables such as Friedrich von Hayek. Friedrich von Hayek, protégé and colleague of founder Ludwig von Mises, is one of the founders of the Mont Pelerin Society of which many CNP are members. 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.

" London Friedrich Hayek was creating an organization that would later re-form as the Mont Pelerin Society. The early group was formed in 1939 and was known as the Society for the Renovation of Liberalism. Members of the organization included Frank Knight and Henry Simons of the University of Chicago, the slavishly pro-British American Fabian Socialist Walter Lippman, the philosopher Sir Karl Popper, Sir John Clapham of the Bank of England, and of course, Ludwig von Mises.  [a founding member and for at least 13 years]

All of these early members of Hayek's group then met at Mont Pelerin, Switzerland to form the influential, highly-secretive, and elitist Mont Pelerin Society in 1947...From the beginning the Mont Pelerin Society worked hand-in-hand with the Pan European Union..." 43b  See: Footnotes  Footnotes 63-67

Beurt SerVaas - CNP Member 1984-85, 1988, 1996, 1998; the futurist Hudson Institute 68 Board of Trustees. Officer, OSS/CIA (1941-45).

All of these Trustees are successful, dedicated, and dynamic people. The Chairman of the Board of Trustees [for 22 years] is a man named Beurt SerVaas. He was just elected again as the President of the Indianapolis City Council in Indiana, for the thirty-first year. Under Beurt's leadership that town has become a world class city.

"....[The Kennedy] family has been linked by rumor and by White House intelligence reports to a number of private detective agencies, including..., the "Three Eyes" stood for International Investigators Incorporated. Chartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, its home office was referred to as Five Eyes. The firm's formal incorporation took place on October 3, 1966. But the files in the Indiana Secretary of State's office show that, more than five years earlier, three retiring FBI agents were granted licenses to work on private investigators for International Investigators, Inc. This seems strange in view of the fact that in February, 1961, when the licenses were granted, the firm had no legal existence. The Three detectives were George C. Miller..., George W. Ryan...Thomas Everson...Within two years the still imaginary firm expanded throughout the Midwest, opening offices in Chicago, Detroit, Louisville, Nashville, Memphis, and Minneapolis --... coincidentally including a great deal of wiretapping. In 1965 the firm was taken over by a mysterious former CIA officer named Beurt Ser Vaas (later to become owner and publisher of the Saturday Evening Post). By this time the branch offices were deemed unnecessary... Nevertheless, Ser Vaas added six new investigators to his Indianapolis staff, making each of them a director; of these at least three had come from the FBI. Two of the firm's original managers...had left for other work. George Miller became a safety office of the Agency for International Development in Saigon, and George Ryan became an executive of the Creole Petroleum Company in Venezuela. Both organizations have provided cover for the CIA...After the arrival of the new recruits, Ser Vaas changed the firm's name to ...904 Realty Company...Finally receiving it's charter in 1966, Ser Vaas's investigative agency was liquidated in the following year. [The International Investigators, Inc.] was a top-secret private intelligence agency with contracts from the CIA, IRS, and other government agencies...its employees were said to identify themselves by means of "doodlegrams", casual scribblings that usually included a "pentagram with five dots surrounding it at each apex..." 71 

International Investigators Incorporated 72 is not defunct, uses the same symbols as original 'Three Eyes' and advertises,  "World Wide since 1960" : "International Investigators Incorporated was formed in 1960 by former FBI Agents. Most of our present staff is comprised of former government agents, former police detectives, many current Indianapolis Police Department detectives who work off-duty for our organization, and professional private investigators. We maintain a completely staffed office in Indianapolis, Indiana and resident agents in numerous major U.S. cities." See also Constitution of Int Invest.Inc. 73

"It was all very reminiscent of Muldergate, the scandal that ensued when it was discovered that South Africa's Department of Information (DOI) authorized expenditures of $73 million for more than 160 secret projects to buy politicians and media favorable to the apartheid state. [National Reporter, Winter 1985] Rev. Moon's Washington Times was one of the beneficiaries - approximately $4.5 million was funneled to Moon's overseas enterprises. The South African government bought substantial interest in a chain of more than sixty newspapers in the U.S.; Saturday Evening Post publisher Beurt SerVaas accepted gifts and business deals from Pretoria; and more than two hundred U.S. journalists toured South Africa on all-expense paid trips." 74   Footnotes 68-74
