Plymouth Rock Foundation 3, "'Charles Hull Wolfe'..., in 1969, when John G. Talcott, Jr. and I first conceived the educational foundation that publishes this Letter from Plymouth Rock, John was a member of the Committee preparing to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims, and I was its executive director...The majority of the Committee was most of all distressed over John Talcott’s proposal that evangelist Billy Graham appear as chief speaker on the big day celebrating the 350th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ actual landing at the Rock. By contrast, some of the minority, (chiefly myself and John Talcott), knew that America had deeply Biblical roots, and believed the Pilgrim anniversary should make that plain. We were impressed with the scholarly work of Verna M. Hall, author of "The Christian History of the Constitution," & the indispensable role of the Pilgrims in that history..." 

Plymouth Rock's executive director, Rus Walton, is a member of the Coalition on Revival [COR] steering committee.

"Rus Walton, head of the Plymouth Rock Foundation" and one of the leaders of Bill Bright's 1970's "Third Century" organization, circulated a memo opposing working with the Moonies in CNP member loaded American Freedom Coalition. Walton eventually backed down under pressure from CNP and Christian Voice head Robert Grant, who was also a leader and joined with the Moonie venture. 4

Dr. Ockenga retired in 1979 but maintained an active emeritus relationship with the school and served as member of the Board of Trustees until his death in 1985" Dr. Billy Graham is Chairman Emeritus of the Board of Trustees. Footnotes 1-5

Strangely enough, Oliver North, Elliot Abrams, and a few others from whom Tambs took orders did not see fit to punish Tambs for committing such a violation, though one official stated that his actions "at the very least... posed serious questions of propriety" (The Nation, Oct. 31, 1987). 9 

Tambs was principle editor of the "Sante Fe Report". Other Committee of Sante Fe members included Roger Fontaine, a National Security Council (NSC) adviser on Latin American affairs, CNP's retired  Lt.

See: Thomas F. Ellis 

Hungarian-born American physicist known for his work on the hydrogen bomb. During World War II he was a member of the MANHATTAN PROJECT for the development of the atomic bomb. At that time he also began formulating the theoretical foundations for a hydrogen fusion bomb and was a major proponent of its development. 24 ; proponent of the Strategic Defense Initiative, better known as "Star Wars." fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Nuclear Society, and is a member of the National Academy of Science and the American Academy of Science;

"Over the years, a steady flow of money from rent-a-car magnate John Hertz enabled Teller to recruit Livermore's pallid army of young physics and math wizards. In 1982, beer baron Joseph Coors and other Heritage Foundation contacts got Teller access to President Reagan, who bought Teller's pitch for "Star Wars" as an impenetrable high- tech "Astrodome" covering the whole country...." 25 

"A long-time supporter of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), in the fall of 1988 the Heritage introduced a new newsletter, SDI Report, to push for this aggressive defense system. Edward Teller, "Father of the Hydrogen Bomb" was the featured member in a Heritage-sponsored panel discussion on the weapons system..." 26 

Member of the Citizens Legal Defense Fund for the FBI, Ad Hoc, ... and a member of the CFR. 27  As of 1983, Edward Teller was a member of the board of directors of the Committee on the Present Danger, an anticommunist organization which advocated strict containment policies vis-a-vis the Soviet Union. Other prominent members of the committee included Ronald Reagan, Jeane Kirkpatrick, and a number of individuals chosen for Reagan's arms control negotiating teams. 28 

Shortly after the Waco incident in Texas, a secret "classified conference" was held at the Los Alamos National Laboratories in New Mexico... I was able to obtain an official copy of the speaking agenda for the November 1993 conference and, oddly, the subject matter under discussion correlated with not only the original Aquino Army report, but also with the MKUltra behavior research underway during the 1950's and 1960's. The title of the conference was "NonLethal Defense" and just a few of the speakers included such dignitaries as the Honorable U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno; Dr. Edward Teller who had helped develop the nuclear bomb; Dr. Milt Finger from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; Mr. Andy Andrews, NonLethal Project Leader at Los Alamos National Laboratory; LTG William H. Forster from Army Research, Development and Acquisition; Dr. Clay Easterly from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Dr. Henry Brisker from U.S. Army Research Laboratories; Ms. Astrid Lewis from the U.S. Army Chemical Research; Development Command; Lt.

During the Manhattan Project, Teller worked with Szilard at the University of Chicago. From 1943, he headed a group at Los Alamos in the Theoretical Physics division. Teller was a major proponent of the "Super" or hydrogen bomb. This position pitted him against Oppenheimer. This issue came to focus during Oppenheimer's security hearings. Teller continues to be a strong advocate of the build-up and development of nuclear weapons. Most recently he supported the creation of an anti-ballistic missile shield. Teller is Director Emeritus at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. 30   Footnotes 19-30

"...The second wife of evangelist Robert Tilton testified Thursday during their divorce trial that she has formed a new church, called the New Word of Faith World Outreach Center, because the original Word of Faith is "not a true church." "It's not the Christianity I know," Leigh Valentine Tilton said of the Word of Faith World Outreach Center of which Tilton is pastor...The new church, Leigh Tilton said, is a subsidiary of Bethel Fellowship of Dallas, which was formed earlier this year. The pastor of Bethel is Tilton's brother, Robert Middleton, and some of the members are former members of the original Word of Faith...

She said she had deeded the $1.6 million former parsonage of the original church - where she lives - to the new church, along with some other assets of the original church. She did not specify which assets.

Attorneys for Robert Tilton and the church are disputing the transfers. The new church, Leigh Tilton said, has elders, deacons and a finance committee. The original Word of Faith has never confirmed elders and has no deacons or finance committee, testimony in the trial has revealed. Robert Tilton "has absolute authority" at the original church and "uses it for his own personal use," she testified Thursday..." She was married to (Tilton) for two years,...Leigh Tilton testified that Robert Tilton promised before their marriage in 1994 that she would be able to continue her activities as an evangelist after their marriage. Since 1984, she had operated Leigh Valentine Ministries.

But she said that after the marriage, he merged her mailing list with that of Word of Faith and that he worked to shut down her ministry....she said, many of the places where she once spoke as an evangelist have canceled her appearances. She referred to a letter from the Metro Life Christian Center of Pompano Beach, Fla. in June.

"Being associated with (Tilton), Leigh, has unfortunately tarnished your reputation in this area at the present time," stated a letter from that church's pastor. "We support you personally, but it will take time before your ministry will be accepted in the church again...."  [The Pantagraph Bloomington, IL, 12/28/1996]

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. The Mont Pelerin Society is a relic of the fascist movements of Europe in the 1920s and 1930s, whose own members, such as Professor Milton Friedman, have "emphasized" that its policies are those of Adolf Hitler. 43 [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 39-45

These 42 Articles state what are the essentials of the Christian World View and in turn rest upon the foundation of the inerrant, written World of God. the Bible." 

According to this manifesto, the Alliance for Reformation and Revival is working to establish a kingdom on earth based on Biblical law and therefore reserves to itself the right to deny the legitimacy of secular governments. "

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."

It's noteworthy that Capitol Hill Prayer Alert's Sarah Ballenger, who was/is in leadership of that organization, was the person who encouraged Barb Aho of Watch Unto Prayer to start doing research/write and eventually start her website. The Aho's had, [and may still,] supported Capital Hill Prayer Alert. Barb Aho is a closet charismatic, private prayer language tongues speaker who attends a Reformed Baptist Church in Florida, with her husband. Reformed Baptists reject tongues and all sign gifts believing them to have ceased and also teach from all Bible versions. Barb Aho has touted in many of her writings, which advocate the use of the King James Version, that versions other than King James are "corrupt." She sits under those "corrupt for others" teachings, calling them "excellent and without error" for herself and family.   Footnotes 46-52

"Three men who worked for the Goldwater campaign and one woman became key players in the formation of the "new right". Richard Viguerie copied the names and addresses of Goldwater donors available from the Library of Congress and launched a direct mail campaign. Howard Phillips founded the Conservative Caucus and supported militarism and South Africa apartheid. Paul Weyrich with financial backing from the Coors family founded the Heritage Foundation in 1973... In 1972 Phyllis Schlafly founded the Eagle Forum." 63  

According to Sara Diamond in Spiritual Warfare, a congressional committee led by Rep. Donald Fraser found that after a 1961 coup in South Korea, "the Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA) decided to 'organize and utilize' the Unification Church as a 'political tool' within the United States. KCIA agents were found to have infiltrated the staffs of Rep. Cornelius Gallagher and House Majority Leader Carl Albert, and numerous Moonies landed volunteer positions in Congressional offices."

"The Fraser Committee found that one of the early KCIA/Moon projects was the Korean Cultural Freedom Foundation, a supposedly nonprofit organization which was actually a propaganda campaign on behalf of South Korea. By the spring of 1964, KCFF was raising funds from Americans for the Freedom Center; the latter was a project of the Asian People's Anti-Communist League (APACL), promoted and subsidized by the Korean government.  The Freedom Center is the secretarial headquarters of the World Anti-Communist League (WACL), a multinational network of Nazi war criminals, Latine American death squad leaders, North American racists and anti-Semites, and fascist politicians from every continent."

"Richard Viguerie says he did some 'pro bono' organizing work for the World Anti-Communist League during the 1970s, and his ties to WACL may have had something to do with his winning the lucrative fundraising contract for the "Children's Relief Fund," sponsored by the Moonies' Korean Cultural and Freedom Foundation. That was in 1977--precisely the period when Viguerie was starting to organize the New Right resentment against the Carter administration.  New York State charity auditors found that less than 6.3 percent of the $1,508,256 Viguerie raised actually went to needy Korean children.  The "charity" went to Richard Viguerie, who netted a fee of more than $920,000."...."

"In 1986, Viguerie was on the bring of bankruptcy when the Unification Church again came to his aid financially.  In late 1985, Viguerie had been forced to sell "Conservative Digest."  In January 1986, eight of his creditors filed suit for a total of $2.3 million owed to them.  At the same time, Viguerie had to put his $9 million office building in Fairfax, Virginia up for sale."

"Just as he was about to go under in early 1986, Viguerie won a lucrative account, the distribution of the Unification Church-owned "Insight "magazine. Then in October 1987, U.S. Property Development Corporation controlled by Rev. Moon's right-hand man, Col. Bo Hi Pak, paid $10.06 million for Viguerie's office building. Also in 1987, Viguerie took on the direct mail account of Moonie-dominated American Freedom Coalition (discussed below). Just as U.S. intelligence agencies have financed and organized right-wing political groups throughout the world, it was to the advantage of well-heeled international interests to help build a reactionary political movement within the United States."  64 

Viguerie's past and present clients include many CNP affiliated organizations: NCPAC, The Conservative Caucus, Campus Crusade, Korean Cultural Freedom Foundation (Moon), Gun Owners of America, YAF, Free Congress Foundation and numerous election campaigns. Viguerie helped found the Council for National Policy, which included most of the activist leadership on the right as well as contributors like Joseph Coors, Herbert William Hunt and Nelson Bunker Hunt . 65 

"... until recently more than $1.5 million in debt, according to Fairfax, Va., court records. They indicate that in mid-October the U.S. Property Development Corp. paid $10.06 million to 7777 Associates for the suburban Virginia office building including Viguerie's headquarters. Viguerie owned 72 percent of 7777 Associates, according to Virginia records, and U.S. Property's president is Moon's right-hand man, Bo Hi Pak.  Viguerie now serves with Abernathy on the five-man board of the Moonie-dominated American Freedom Coalition. The coalition, which claims a 'house list' of more than 300,000 member-contributors, is also Viguerie's biggest new direct-mail client." ["How Rev. Moon Got Ensconced with the New Right: His Aid is Varied and Plentiful," Seattle Times, Dec. 31, 1987]

"In March l985, CIS sponsored a "Nicaraguan Freedom Gala" at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in California for contra commanders Fernando Chamorro and Steadman Fagoth. The event cost $100 a couple and generated $8000 in proceeds, including donations. Bouchey said the money was to be used for a radio advertisement campaign which targeted 50 congressional districts thought to be swing votes in the next contra aid legislative battle. Part of the funds were to be used for a television documentary called Central America: Before It's Too Late, narrated by Rep. Robert Dornan.... The following year, CIS sponsored another Nicaraguan Freedom Gala, this one in Washington D.C. In attendance were Richard Viguerie, direct mail wizard of the New Right, Enrique Bermudez, top contra commander, and Adolfo Calero, a member of the contra political directorate... Former contra leader Edgar Chamorro notes that Bouchey visited contra forces in Honduras..." 66   Footnotes 60-66
