"Outfront, July/August 1997), Mother Jones uncovered allegations that Benjamin Hart, the Christian Coalitions former direct-mail vendor and a confidant of its former executive director Ralph Reed [Ralph E. Reed, Jr.] , had been overbilling the right-wing group for his services. We also reported that Hart had tried unsuccessfully to filch a copy of the coalitions donor database. According to a lawsuit the coalition filed against Hart in November, he got the next best thing, the coalitions mailing list.
The suit accused Harts firm, Hart Conover, of using an unauthorized copy of the list to solicit funds for two rival conservative groups run by Hart and asked for $350,000 in punitive damages. Two former coalition employees have said that Reed gave Hart the list, but Reed and the coalition have denied that charge. So, has Hart, who confidentially settled with the coalition in February" 6
"...Hart quickly became known as Reed's No. 2 man....Not only did Reed defer direct mail decisions to Hart, he also allowed Hart to coordinate the group's telemarketing projects, print its voter guides, and oversee the bidding on its million-piece direct mail packages...Hart's problems at the coalition began in the fall of 1995, when the coalition's marketing director, Donald Black, discovered that Hart's firm, Hart Conover, actually owned two of the vendors it was using to handle the coalition's mailings: Universal Lists (which rented mailing lists to the coalition) and Federal Printing & Mailing (which handled the group's direct mail solicitations). In a memo to coalition CFO Judy Liebert, Black wrote, "This 'closed circle' of business provides Hart Conover with an extraordinary income stream. It doesn't give us the benefit of a competitive bidding environment. Consequently, our 'above the line' cost for direct mail fundraising is astronomical (somewhere in the 50 to 70 percent bracket). Even if this relationship is legally justifiable, it reflects an appearance of impropriety." According to a memo Liebert wrote to the Christian Coalition board, when she approached Reed with this information in the fall of 1995, he said he knew Hart owned the firms and assured her that Hart had sought out competitive bids.... According to a coalition source, when the auditor contacted Hart, Hart told him that auditing his direct mail operation would not be necessary, because he was going to resign. (He later changed his mind.) Around the time Hart professed to be leaving the coalition, he also tried unsuccessfully to obtain a copy of the group's donor database, valued at more than $900,000. 7 Footnotes 6-7

An "endorser" of the Unification Church spawned Washington Times, and according to high placed sources, a member of the CFR in 1972! 84. 21 "In September 1980, WACL members gathered in Buenos Aires for CAL's [WACL's affiliate in Latin America- Anti-Communist Confederation] annual meeting. They were hosted by military junta and the Argentine Anti-Communist Alliance (AAA) death squad. Among those attending were Senator Jesse Helms' (R-NC) aide-at-large John Carbaugh, Mario Sandoval, Roberto D'Aubuisson and Italian terrorist Stafano Delle Chiaie, who was wanted for a string of murders and bombings in Europe...Delle Chiaie journeyed to the CAL conference from Bolivia, where he was in a cocaine and terror partnership with Nazi Klaus Barbie (alias Klaus Altmann)." 22
"In 1974, CAL introduced a resolution at WACL's annual conference seeking the overthrow of the U.S. government ...and installation of a military junta. CAL...leaders were the principal authors of the 1962 Complot Contra La Iglesia (Conspiracy Against the Church). A response to the liberalism of Vatican Council II, the Complot has been called "one of the most scathingly anti-semitic and unabashedly pro-Nazi tracts ever written." 23
Jesse Helms vigorously supported a Nicaraguan rebel group closely tied to narcotrafficking. He continued his support long after the drug link was widely known in Washington and reported in the national press. 24 On April 15, 1985 Senator Helms and four other members of Congress appealed to President Reagan to renew U.S. support for Eden Pastora, whose forces had been funded by the CIA from 1982 to 1984. Helms and his colleagues wrote: "No matter what difficulties may have occurred in the past, we believe that in this critical period, U.S. policy should at least be guided by the time-tested maxim: 'The enemy of my enemy is my friend.'" 25
On March, 27, 1986, U.S. Ambassador to Costa Rica Lewis Tambs sent this "back-channel" cable to the CIA, State Department and the White House to quietly inform Reagan officials of a deal struck between Helms envoy John Singlaub and Eden Pastora. This version of the document, uncovered by Iran-Contra investigators, bears a note typed in the margin by one of the recipients: "[ARDE official] 'Popo' Chamorro is alleged... to be involved in drug trafficking." 26
This April 1986 CIA report -- on "Drug Trafficking Activities by Members of Pastora's Organization" -- offers an indication of U.S. official knowledge of ARDE's drug ties during a period when Helms was promoting Pastora in Washington. "Reportedly," the document says, "Pastora was aware of the drug trafficking activities of his subordinates." 27
The Pioneer Fund served as a small part of "a multimillion dollar political empire of corporations, foundations, political action committees and ad hoc groups" active in 1980s (Washington Post, March 31, 1985, p. 1; A16) developed by Tom Ellis., Harry Weyher, Marion Parrott, R.E. Carter Wrenn and Jesse Helms. The Fund has served as a nexus between academic theory and practical political ideology. It's leadership, especially, Harry Weyher, Thomas F. Ellis and Marion A. Parrott are part of an interlocking set of directorates and associates linking the Pioneer Fund to Jesse Helms' high-tech political machine. Ellis, for example, simultaneously served as Chairman of the National Congressional Club and the Coalition for Freedom, co-founder of Fairness in Media, a board member of the Educational Support Foundation and Director of the Pioneer Fund. Harry Weyher, president of the Pioneer Fund served as lead counsel for Fairness in Media. 28.
Recipients of Pioneer grants have included most of the leading Anglo-American academic race-scientists of the last several decades have been funded by the Pioneer, including William Shockley, Hans J. Eysenck, Arthur Jensen, Roger Pearson, Richard Lynn, J. Philippe Rushton, R. Travis Osborne, Linda Gottfredson, Robert A. Gordon, Daniel R. Vining, Jr., Michael Levin, and Seymour Itzkoff - all cited in The Bell Curve. 29
Founder of the Pioneer Fund, "Colonel Draper, ... believed geneticists could scientifically prove the inferiority of Negros.... Under his direction, the Pioneer Fund's original charter outlined a commitment to "improve the character of the American people" by encouraging the procreation of descendants of the original white colonial stock." Draper turned more and more to academic irredentists still dedicated to white supremacy and eugenics. ...Most prominent among these early recruits was Henry Garrett, Chair of Psychology at Columbia University from 1941-1955. A Virginia born segregationist, Garrett was a key witness in defending segregation...Garrett helped to distribute grants for Draper and was one of the founders of the International Association for the Advancement of Eugenics and Ethnology (IAAEE) in 1959. The IAAEE brought together academic defenders of segregation in the U.S. and apartheid in South Africa. The Pioneer Fund supported the IAAEE and other institutions working to legitimising race science, including the IAAEE's journal, Mankind Quarterly..." 30
The Pioneer Fund has changed little since its inception. An article in the New York Times on December 11, 1977 characterized it as having "supported highly controversial research by a dozen scientists who believe that blacks are genetically less intelligent than whites." In the 1960s Nobel Laureate William Shockley (1910-1989), a physicist at Stanford University best known for his "voluntary sterilization bonus plan" received an estimated $188,710 from the Pioneer Fund between 1971 and 1978. Arthur Jensen, an educational psychologist, garnered more than a million dollars in Pioneer grants over the past three decades. Three years after being recruited by Shockely, Jensen published his now famous attack on Head Start in the prestigious Harvard Education Review. Jensen claimed the problem with black children was that they had an average IQ of only 85 and that no amount of social engineering would improve their performance. Jensen urged "eugenic foresight" as the only solution. 31
Roger Pearson, whose Institute for the Study of Man has been one of the top Pioneer beneficiaries over the past twenty years ($870,000 from 1981-1996) is the clearest example of the extremist ideology of the Fund's leadership...Taking account of all groups linked to Pearson, Pioneer support between 1975-1996 exceeds one million dollars - nearly ten percent of the total Pioneer grants for that period. 32
"For an overview on 'race and intelligence,' Murray and Herrnstein recommend two books by three Pioneer Fund recipients: Audrey Shuey, Frank C. J. McGurk, and R. Travis Osborne. McGurk is the main authority they cite to 'prove' that IQ tests are not racially biased. He was one of the 'scientific' mainstays of the segregationist movement in the southern US. In 1959 McGurk and Shuey became leading members of the International Association for the Advancement of Ethnology and Eugenics, first publisher of Mankind Quarterly. 33 Other members included Senator Jesse Helms and the oil billionaire Hunt brothers. Arch-racists in the South introduced Shuey's book in court during the 1960s to argue for continuing school segregation and denying the vote to black people. University of Georgia professor Osborne also testified in court against school integration. Osborne was still, in 1992, trying to prove the long-discarded theory that brain size is somehow related to intelligence." 34
"Much of The Bell Curve's racist drivel comes from Mankind Quarterly, whose principle is that the "Negroid" race is inferior to all others, and from professors funded by the pro-Nazi Pioneer Fund (PF). Behind this fascist gang stand important members of the US ruling class.
"Seventeen authors cited in The Bell Curve are Mankind Quarterly (MQ) contributors. Ten are former or present editors or members of its editorial advisory board. MQ's avowed purpose is to counter "Communist" and "egalitarian" influences in anthropology. From its start in 1960, its founders and funders believed that white people were genetically superior. Robert Gayre was the founder of MQ and its editor-in-chief until 1978. As a champion of South African apartheid and a member of the ultra-right Candour League of white-ruled Rhodesia, he testified in court in 1968 that black people as a group are "worthless." Other MQ contributors have included Henry Garrett of Columbia University, who wrote pamphlets for the pro-segregation White Citizens Councils; Corrado Gini, the leader of fascist Italy's eugenics movement; and Ottmar von Verschner, a leading Nazi race-scientist and academic mentor of the concentration camp butcher Joseph Mengele."
"The key figure in the PF network is Roger Pearson, who is close to Jesse Helms. Sam Crutchfield, a lawyer for Helms, has been the lawyer for Pearson's Institute for the Study of Man. The PF has given Pearson over $787,400, mostly for editing Mankind Quarterly and The Journal of Social, Political and Economic Studies. The last publishes articles by PF recipients, notably Arthur Jensen, Michael Levin, and Richard Lynn. Thomas Ellis, a PF director, is a long-time friend and campaign manager for Helms." 35
"In 1958, Pearson, living in London, led the Northern League. This white-power organization included former Nazi SS officials. Willis Carto, founder of the anti-black and anti-semitic Liberty Lobby, arranged a 1959 U.S. speaking tour for him. Pearson soon moved to the U.S. to edit the neo-Nazi publication Western Destiny. In Eugenics and Race he asserted: "If a nation with a more advanced, more specialized, or in any way superior set of genes mingles with, instead of exterminating, an inferior tribe, then it commits racial suicide. "
"This track record won Pearson influence in Washington, DC. In 1975 he became editor of the journal of the American Security Council...Pearson also headed the U.S. chapter of the World Anti-Communist League (WACL). In 1977 he became the international chair of this nest of fascist vipers. He organized its 1978 convention, which featured two U.S. Senators as keynote speakers. Then he was exposed as having recruited open neo-Nazis to WACL, and was forced to resign. Four years later, President Reagan personally thanked Pearson for his "substantial contributions to promoting and upholding those ideals and principles that we value at home and abroad." 36
"Pearson eventually replaced Gayre as editor of The Mankind Quarterly. Pearson, more than most, saw the potential in manipulating genetics for political goals when, in 1959, he wrote Eugenics and Race. He argued that the white race is endangered by inferior genetic stock, but with proper use of modern biological technology "a new super-generation" descended from "only the fittest" of the previous generation can be produced. Whoever adopted such a scientific breeding program "would dominate the rest of the world". Moving to the United States Pearson quickly became involved in far-right politics, first editing Western Destiny and later the short-lived The New Patriot, a magazine designed to conduct "a responsible but penetrating inquiry into every aspect of the Jewish Question". It included articles such as "Zionists and the Plot Against South Africa", "Early Jews and the Rise of Jewish Money Power", and "Swindlers of the Crematoria". Despite his fascist connections, Pearson became increasingly well connected with the Republican Party and the right-wing think-tank, The Heritage Foundation. 37
"Henry Garrett, Chair of Psychology at Columbia University from 1941 to 1955. A Virginia born segregationist, Garrett was a key witness defending segregation in the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. During the 1950s and 1960s, Garrett helped to distribute grants for the Pioneer Fund and was one of the founders of the International Association for the Advancement of Eugenics and Ethnology (IAAEE) in 1959. The IAAEE brought together academic defenders of segregation in the USA and apartheid in South Africa. The Pioneer Fund supported the IAAEE and other institutions working to legitimise race-science, including the IAAEE's journal, The Mankind Quarterly." 38
In the United States, WACL's first chairman was Roger Pearson, a white supremacist, eugenicist and neo-Nazi. Pearson was the editor of Willis Carto's anti-Semitic rag, Western Destiny, the forerunner of the Liberty Lobby's Spotlight tabloid. By the mid 1970s, Pearson served on the editorial boards of both the Heritage Foundation 38a and the American Security Council. Pearson, who has described himself as a "mainstream conservative," boasted to an associate about his alleged role in hiding Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, the "Angel of Death" who directed Nazi "medical experiments" at the Auschwitz extermination camp. With degrees in anthropology and economics, Pearson is the author several books on eugenics. His most "popular" are Eugenics and Race and Race and Civilization. He credits Professor Hans F. K. Gunther, a Nazi racial theoretician, as the inspiration behind the latter volume. Under Pearson's tutelage, WACL added Western European chapters that were drawn from the ranks of Nazi war criminals, Third Reich collaborators, neo-Nazis and right-wing terrorists. Western European affiliates included the racist British League of Rights and Italy's Italian Social Movement (MSI). Pino Rauti, the founder of the outlawed group, Ordine Nuovo was a key WACL Western European contact.... Rauti and countless other Italian fascists including the war criminal, June Valerio "Black Prince" Borghese, and key members of the Italian general staff, were "rehabilitated" Nazi collaborators recruited by the CIA into NATO's "stay behind" anti-communist terror network, also known as "Gladio."... 38b
Roger Pearson was a writer and organizer for the Nazi Northern League of northern Europe, who in 1977 joined the editorial board of Policy Review, the monthly Heritage Foundation publication. William Shockley, Arthur Jensen and Roger Pearson, who has written that "inferior races" should be "exterminated" were funded while CNP's Tom Ellis. was director on the Pioneer board. At that same time, Ellis served on the CNP's thirteen-member executive committee with Holly Coors, Paul Weyrich, and Heritage Foundation president, Edwin Feulner until June 1989. Oliver North and Reed Larson also joined the executive committee.
Recall that in order to be a CNP member, a biography/resume must be submitted by a CNP member and the executive must have a unanimous vote in order for an individual to be asked to be a member. CNP's Gary North writes of the formation years of the CNP including himself with Timothy LaHaye, Terry J. Jeffers and Terry Dolan, in the article Gary North on the CNP
The National Congressional Club was Jesse Helms' PAC based in Raleigh and directed by Helms' senior advisor, attorney Tom Ellis. National Congressional Club, raised $9.8 million in the 1982 election cycle. In the 1984 cycle, the club raised $5.7 million while Helms campaign committee raised $13.99 million, 39. The Club dissolved in the 1990's, with many staffers absorbed into other campaigns.
The Congressional Club began after the 1972 Senate campaign, when Ellis retained Richard Viguerie (CNP) to help pay off the Helms campaign debt. Ellis and Viguerie built the Congressional Club mailing list to more than 300,000 regular contributors -- a constituency for Helms and a major financial resource within the conservative movement... Besides Viguerie, Phillips [Howard Phillips], and Dolan [ John T. (Terry) Dolan] connections, Helms is actively represented in Weyrich's [Paul Weyrich] coordinating groups. 40 Footnotes 17-40

Early participants may actually get a portion of their money back, but it comes directly from new money paid in by later participants in the scheme."

BUCKHORN principals, JOSEPH K. HILYARD and MICHAEL LEE MATHIS, are Texas residents. ..According to the notice, SAFE KEEPING DEPOSITORY, INC. participated in the sale of the unregistered securities and the fraud. Its president, STEVEN L. SHOOK, is a Scottsdale resident. the Securities Division alleged that SAFE KEEPING guaranteed investors that their investment principal and profits were secured by liens against certificates of deposit.

" The Arizona Attorney General's Office, Consumer
Protection and Advocacy Section, has announced an indictment
of three men on fraud and theft charges for allegedly
defrauding investors out of more than $9.1 million over a two
year period. STEVEN L. SHOOK, of Arizona, MICHAEL MATHIS of
Texas and JOSEPH HILYARD of Texas are charged
with operating a pyramid scheme with money from investors in
34 states and in Canada.
According to the indictment, the defendants operated BUCKHORN FINANCIAL SERVICES, INC. and SAFEKEEPING INC. The defendants had allegedly promised investors that their money would be used to make loans to new and existing businesses. The investors were told they would get a return of 3% - 4% per month, minus a 1% administrative fee. The companies would also give investors documents showing that their principal and profits were secured by liens against certificates of deposit. However, the indictment alleges that the three men failed to tell investors that their funds were secured by a Mexican Credit Union or that their money was never used to make the loans as promised. Instead, the funds were used to pay monthly distributions to other investors, a practice referred to as a "Ponzi" or "pyramid" scheme. " Footnote 51-54
