The Sun Myung Moon Connection to the CNP

moon

Today we are seeing the truth of the above statements unfold before our very eyes. Our country has fallen prey to those who seek power for their own benefit, those who worship themselves over God, those who only mention God and the Bible to score political points in order to move their own agendas forward.

The United States has entered a new period as a country in decline, and that decline is now accelerating. Those who are now governing this nation are doing so without God, and without the principles of the Bible, and they are proving everyday how impossible it is to rightly govern without them.

The Council for National Policy claims to stand for traditional values, small government and a strong military, but they have cuddled with CFR members, with cultists/occultists, and with enemies of freedom and liberty. This was most obvious with the council members’ affiliations with Rev. Sun Myung Moon.

The CNP members claim to be Christians, but quite obviously their love of money is the motivating force behind their actions. Cultist Sun Myung Moon was deeply involved with the members of the Council for National Policy as well as the Heritage Foundation.

Sun Myung Moon and the Unification Church

Sun Myung Moon was born in 1920 in what is now North Korea. At the time, Korea was under Japanese rule. Moon was raised in the Presbyterian church, one of many faiths persecuted by the Japanese rulers. The political upheavals caused divisions and new movements in Korean Christianity, including a group known as “spiritualists” who received new revelations from God and looked for a Korean messiah.

Moon said that on Easter morning at the age of 16, he had a vision in which Jesus asked him to complete his unfinished work as messiah, which is to bring the Kingdom of God to mankind and peace on earth. Accepting this call, Moon studied the Bible and other religious teachings and developed his complex doctrines about God, love, sin and the means of salvation. One wonders what other “religious teachings” he studied.

Moon began to preach his doctrines in Korea in 1946. Two years later he was excommunicated by the Presbyterian Church, and shortly thereafter he was imprisoned and tortured by the North Korean authorities for reasons that are not entirely clear. In 1950 he was released and fled to South Korea, where in 1954 he founded the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity (HSA-UWC), or the Unification Church.

Moon’s Unification theology is complex, but a central tenet is to right the wrongs of Adam and Eve. According to Moon’s Divine Principle, Satan seduced Eve, who then had illicit relations with Adam and spawned impure children.

Moon regarded Jesus as the second Adam, but Jesus was crucified before he could marry and bring forth sinless progeny. Thus, according to Moon, mankind’s salvation depended on a third savior to appear on Earth and marry a pure woman. Together they would become the “true parents” of mankind and beget pure families to populate the kingdom of God. In line with that doctrine, Moon says Jesus failed in his mission to save mankind because he did not procreate. Moon saw himself as a second messiah who will not make the same mistake. He engaged in sex with a variety of women over the decades, including having out-of-wedlock children with mistresses. The total number of his offspring is a point of debate inside the Unification Church.

For those of you who are not familiar with the Rev. Moon, in the 60s, both he and his Unification Church were universally regarded as a dangerous cult. The abuse his followers suffered at the hands of their mind manipulating master is indeed very well established. I remember well the loss suffered by my mother’s good friends when their only child joined the Moonies. The parents had their son kidnapped and deprogrammed, but he went back. Those parents could not leave anything to their son because it would go directly to Moon.

Moon’s claims included stating that Christ failed His mission, and that Moon himself was the “new messiah” who came to fulfill the mission of God. He also claimed that it was his mission to ‘unite the world through uniting religious forces.’ But would it shock you to know that nearly all the big name Christian evangelicals have extremely strong ties to him? (Ties for Moon’s money).

Moon owns the Washington Times newspaper, which Reagan stated he read every morning. The former editor of that newspaper was CNP and CFR member Arnaud de Borchgrave, who now heads Moon’s UPI. The Unification church has pumped 1.7 billion into the Washington Times to keep it afloat. These monies have been alleged to have come from the Korean CIA.

Robert Grant and the American Freedom Coalition

Council for National Policy (CNP) member, Rev. Robert Grant, (Link) headed up the American Freedom Coalition (AFC), which was a front group within the CNP for Moon. The American Freedom Coalition began in 1987 with a merger of Robert Grant’s fundamentalist organization, Christian Voice, and the American Constitution Committee of Reverend Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church, with the Moon conglomerate providing the initial funding. Its first activity, orchestrated by direct-mail expert Richard Viguerie, was a massive fundraising effort for the Nicaraguan contras and CNP charter member, Oliver North.

Grant’s organization received over $5 M in two years from Moon. Link This gave Moon the opportunity to fund other CNP members. For a full view of who was involved in the AFC, please click on the above AFC link as the connections show a huge spider web to other CNP members and the left.

The below article originally appeared in the Feb. 5, 1988, issue of Christianity Today. At the time, author Kim Lawton was a Washington Correspondent for the magazine.

AFC leadership comes from a five-person national board of directors with Robert Grant, founder and chairman of the lobby group, Christian Voice (formerly headquartered at the Heritage Foundation in the 70s and 80s), acting as president and national spokesman. The Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s Ralph Abernathy is AFC vice-president, and former Congressmen Richard Ichord (D-Mo.) and Bob Wilson (R-Calif.) are cochairmen of the board. Conservative fund raiser Richard Viguerie serves as secretary.

The CAUSA connection

A major problem for the group has been continuing rumors of association with the Unification Church. Grant, a graduate of Wheaton College and Fuller Theological Seminary, refused to be directly interviewed by Christianity Today, but agreed to respond on paper to submitted questions. Grant acknowledged that he looked to “recruit a broad base” from his contacts with “Confederation of the Associations for the Unification of the Societies of the Americas (CAUSA),(which is Unification Church’s political arm) a political organization that was founded by Sun Myung Moon, which receives funds from “business interests connected with the Unification Church,” and is led by Unification official and Moon associate, Bo Hi Pak.

Grant said that upon his direct solicitation, CAUSA USA president Philip Sanchez (VP of Moon’s Washington Times, and Board Member of Moon’s University of Bridgeport) and CAUSA International president Bo Hi Pak agreed to help AFC in several ways:

  • Time on the program agenda of all CAUSA conferences in order to enable AFC board members to present the goals of the AFC and to solicit members.
  • Access to the names of thousands of attendees who have participated in previous CAUSA conferences.
  • The services of one staff member per state to help in reaching out to the CAUSA “graduates” and to encourage them to join the AFC, as well as the services of several others to help the new AFC Office in Washington, D.C.

State directors for Christian Voice and the American Constitution Committee (ACC), a CAUSA project, lead the state AFC organizations. Grant said the AFC has approximately 65 CAUSA/ACC employees nationwide. According to information provided to Christianity Today by current and former AFC members, the majority of AFC administrative officers, including the executive director, administrative director, and publications editor are members of the Unification Church and have been officials of CAUSA and ACC.

Despite his controversial beliefs and cult activities, Moon bought many friends on the American right, especially those in the CNP, — as well as among African-American religious figures — by spreading around vast sums of money. The totals are estimated in the billions of dollars, with much of it targeted on political infrastructure: direct-mail operations, video services for campaign ads, professional operatives and right-wing media outlets. Through The Washington Times and its affiliated publications — now defunct, Insight magazine and The World & I — Moon not only showcased conservative opinions, but he created seemingly legitimate conduits to funnel money to individuals and companies he sought to influence.

In Part 16, we’ll look at some of Moon’s blasphemous speeches, those in attendance, and those on the right who were “bought-and-paid-for” recipients of Moon’s largess.

And yes, I know that reading this series is very disheartening. I get many letters asking me if there is anyone we can put our faith in who will save our Republic. My answer is this….our one hope is God, and His Son, the Messiah, King of Glory, Jesus of Nazareth. Read your Bibles, pray without ceasing and work to save your beloved country. Pray for a Nineveh…and as our Lord said, “and having done all, TO STAND.”

Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 3

If there is to be any future for America as an independent nation, somebody must tell the truth. That truth is painful to most Americans who have been silently reeducated over the last one hundred years. The Don Bell Report

As I mentioned in Part 2, the CNP still has CFR members on their membership lists today. It is populated by neo-con Trotskyites and corporate fascists, along with Dominionists/Reconstructionists, and cultists. There was a long and planned process of destroying old right Constitutional conservatism which has unfortunately succeeded. Here’s what happened:

Forty or fifty years ago or more, those who have become leaders in today’s Republican party drifted away from Trotskyism and began to identify themselves as democratic socialists. Still later, under the guise of neo-conservatives, Irving Kristol and William F. Buckley, who emasculated true old right conservatism, slithered into the Republican party as “moderates.” They stole the name of “conservative” and seized intellectual control of the true conservatives, as well as the entire Republican party. I strongly suggest the purchase of John McManus’s well documented and referenced book, William F. Buckley, Pied Piper for the Establishment. Buckley was CFR, CIA agent, Skull and Bonesman from Yale, as well as an invited guest to Bilderberger conferences. Link

We must not ignore Leon Trotsky. Trotsky, unlike Stalin and Lenin, favored the slow and patient imposition of Marxist socialism without murders and gulags, yet he had no problem murdering three million Russians. Trotsky wished for the people to “choose” Marxism, rather than having it forced upon them. Irving Kristol, father of Bilderberger, Bill Kristol, stated, “I regard myself as lucky to have been a young Trotskyite and I have not a single bitter memory.”

Dominionists/Reconstructionists desire a Christian theocracy to head the country, a return to old testament laws, (punishment for sin, i.e. stoning in the street for homosexuals, adulterers, etc.) and they believe Christ will not return until they have theocratized the world. Here is a more thorough definition.

As for cults, the main influence in the CNP was none other than Sun Myung Moon through the front group, American Freedom Coalition, headed by Dr. Robert Grant. The Church of Scientology is also a member of American Legislative Exchange Council. Link

In the late 70s, the view on the Right was that an organization such as the Council for National Policy was needed. It stemmed from their perception that the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) – closely identified with the Rockefeller family – was selling out American interests in the pursuit of a “left-wing foreign policy agenda.” This is true. However, these right wing groups, under the CNP umbrella, have been extremely helpful in promoting the exact same agenda. Go back and reread the statement in Tragedy and Hope by Carroll Quigley in Part 1 of this series, and remember that statement is from 1966.

All the organizations within the CNP sent us fund raising letters promising to stop the abortion agenda, the homosexual agenda, the anti-gunners and everything else. They are tied to the Heritage Foundation in promoting great sounding rightwing principles, which failed to tell the core and truth of the Republic’s destruction. The grassroots people trusted these alleged Christian patriots, and sent them millions and millions of dollars. These groups all became wealthy, and grew exponentially. The grassroots middle class Christians and patriots became poor. Nothing changed. It is even worse today after 35 years of funding these groups.

The majority of these various groups claimed to be Christians, yet had a self righteous attitude towards those who had abortions or were homosexuals. Needless to say, their rhetoric didn’t win any converts, and why should it? They were busy pointing fingers and screaming “Sinner!” The love of Christ was not in their hearts or in their treatment of their fellow man.

So now, let’s take a look at two of the four top movers and shakers who founded the CNP. Please note this is just skimming the surface of their involvements.

Nelson Bunker Hunt

hunt

Hunt was a Texas Oil Man and silver manipulator and financial provider for fellow CNP member, Bill Bright’s Campus Crusade for Christ. He lost his fortune in the silver market, but has since regained it. Link Bunker also provided Wycliffe Bible Translators property in TX for a new international translation center.   Thy Will Be Done, by Colby and Dennett, documents the connections between Wycliffe Bible Translators, the Rockefeller family, and the CIA who carried out the genocide of indigenous tribes in the Amazon basin. As well, he funded CNP member Ed McAteer, “the Colgate-Palmolive salesman who was the organizing force behind the politicized Fundamentalist movement”…and who had the McAteer Roundtable years ago where these CNP members met to decide policy. McAteer was also on the Wycliffe Bible Translation board. Colby and Dennett also describe the vital role of Ed McAteer in bringing together wealthy liberal and conservative patrons to fund and direct the Wycliffe organization which, in the name of Christ, was assisting Nelson Rockefeller in the conquest of Latin America. Link Ed McAteer was also instrumental in the founding of CNP member, Jerry Falwell’s Moral Majority.

In 1951, Bunker Hunt and Wallace Johnson, founder of Holiday Inns, worked with and funded Bill Bright’s Campus Crusade for Christ donating $15.5 million. In 1967, Hunt formed the Christian World Liberation Front (CWLF) as a covert front for Campus Crusade, which split off and became a leading ministry in the Jesus People movement. He once organized a paramilitary force called “Americans Volunteer Group” which he intended to use as a “death squad” against political opponents. [Ominous Politics, Saloma 53; Roads to Dominion, Diamond 51-56, 250]

Recently, Wycliffe’s effort was to complete a new translation which eliminated both Father and Son from the Bible in order to be more appealing to Muslims. The outcry of the public apparently stopped this.

Pat Robertson

robertson

Robertson is a Southern Baptist and was active as an ordained minister with that denomination for many years, but holds to a charismatic theology not traditionally common among Southern Baptists. Pat holds a law degree from Yale, having turned to the ministry after he failed to pass the bar in New York State.

He is the founder of Christian Broadcasting Network, and stated in his book, Shout it From the Housetops, that he was led to Christ by Dutch Missionary Cornelius Vanderbreggen.

Vanderbreggen was present at the 1987 National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention, and according to new age expert and attorney, Constance Cumbey, author of Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, Vanderbreggen was at the booth for Willis Carto‘s Liberty Lobby, the former publisher of the Spotlight Magazine. Vanderbreggen was actually doing seminars for Liberty Lobby about Israel and the Bible. Carto is also the co-founder of the Institute for Historical Review, considered the leader in Holocaust denial groups. Critics claim, and rightly so, that Carto and his organizations are anti-Semitic.

Connie was at the 1987 National Religious Broadcasters‘ Convention, where she saw Vanderbreggen at the Liberty Lobby booth. She immediately remembered reading Robertson’s book, and that Vanderbreggen was mentioned as having led Robertson to Christ. Vanderbreggen was sent to talk to Connie and dissuade her of the belief that the Institute for Historical Review was a holocaust denial group. Anyone who knows Constance Cumbey knows she documents everything and has a memory like a steel trap. Present with Connie, and witness to all this was none other than Joseph Carr, author of The Twisted Cross: The Occultic Religion of Hitler and the New Age Nazism of the Third Reich. I asked Connie if she thought Vanderbreggen was a dominionist because Robertson so often featured the leading Council for National Policy dominionists on his Christian Broadcasting Network program. She said she thought of him as more of a Nazi. Read Connie’s 5 part article at NWVs, entitled, The Family” and It’s Hijacking of Evangelicalism.

Pat also was the founder of Christian Coalition, headed by fellow CNP member, Ralph Reed, who was later disgraced for his involvement with another CNP member, Jack Abramoff. Jack was a D.C. lobbyist, who went to prison for the Indian lobbying scandal. Christian Coalition was famous for their voter guides, but there are countless incidents where lies or omissions were told about true Constitutional conservatives in order to elect the moderates or neo-conservatives instead.

In 1997, Robertson also sold his Family Channel for 1.9 billion to CFR member, Rupert Murdoch, which renamed it Fox Family. A condition of the sale was that the station would continue airing Robertson’s television program, The 700 Club, twice a day in perpetuity, regardless of any changes of ownership. The channel is now owned by Disney and run as “ABC Family.” Robertson worked for two years as financial analyst and management trainee at W.R. Grace Co., who employed émigré Nazis after WWII. Robertson was also godfather of the child of company president J. Peter Grace, who, as I stated in Part 2, was head of the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta in the United States, and a key figure in the CIA’s Operation Paperclip to remove classified information from dossiers on Nazi war criminals. Grace was CFR as well as CNP on the initial membership roster, and was also on the board of CNP member, Willard Garvey’s International Conference on Privatizing Education. In 1984, between the establishment of Garvey’s National Center for Privatization and Reagan’s executive order to permanently establish low fees for public land grazing, Willard Garvey wrote a letter to President Reagan, dated April 6, 1984, which stated, in part, “Privatization is now an idea whose time has come.’ The knowledge, communication, and computer industry can make political representatives obsolete!” Link  This letter also included a brochure for the Heritage Foundation.

In 2008, Pat rushed to endorse pro-abort, pro homosexual, anti-gunner, Rudi Guilliani, and in 2012, endorsed Willard Mitt Romney.

In Part 4, we’ll look at Tim LaHaye and T. Cullen Davis as well as other powerful people within the Council for National Policy.
