is the CNP
On August 28, 2004
the New York Times ran an article
titled "Club of the
Most Powerful Gathers in Strictest Privacy" by DAVID D.
KIRKPATRICK. It was a report about the CNP's most
recent meeting at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Reportedly
the purpose was for what a participant called "a pep rally" to
re-elect President Bush.
Speakers at the
2004 event included Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of California and
former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani of New York. The NY Times
article again confirmed many of the details that have been
compiled in the Council for National Policy section on this
The reporter also
quoted the CNP rules, which they obtained, and which stated in
"The media should
not know when or where we meet or who takes part in our
programs, before of after a meeting,"
"The membership list is
"strictly confidential." Guests may attend "only with the
unanimous approval of the executive committee...."
According to the
article, President Bush had addressed the group in fall 1999 to
solicit support for his campaign. It was also reported that
after the Iraq invasion, Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense
Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld attended a CNP council meeting. The
report went on to say that an agenda obtained by the Times
revealed that "several Bush administration and campaign
officials were on hand."
"The destiny of our nation
is on the shoulders of the conservative movement," the Senate
majority leader, Bill Frist, Republican of Tennessee, told the
gathering as he accepted its Thomas Jefferson award on
Thursday, according to an attendee's notes"
