ParentalRights.org and Occupy Hacktivists Working Together

My Comments:  Michael Farris and Grover Norquist are both fellow members of the secretive Council for National Policy (the rightwing arm of the Council on Foreign Relations).  As well, Grover Norquist is a member of the CFR and a Muslim.  Norquist intoduced the Muslim Brotherhood to none other than George W. Bush’s White House after 9/11.  Farris is not to be trusted as he has been pushing a Constitutional Convention for decades.
By Michelle Horstman for FREEDOMOUTPOST.COM
On June 5th, protests took place all around the US as well as overseas against Child Protective Services (CPS) and promoting the passage of the Parental Rights Amendment. A more planned follow up event is coming in August. The amendment was authored by Michael Farris, founder of ParentalRights.org, where he serves on the board along with Grover Norquist. According to the many promotional pages on Facebook, craigslist posts and Twitter posts, objectives of the protest were:
Our objective:
*Repeal Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997
*Compensation for wrongfully involved families
*Full FBI investigation of CPS/family courts
*The passing of the Parental Rights Amendment
*Transparency in Family Court
*Legal Accountability of CPS

A few of the links to these events can be examined here:

Hacktivists/Anonymous are behind this effort, but the promotional poster also has parentalrights.org across the top as seen here:
Anonymous hacktivists (“We Are Legion”) have organized this event. There is no doubt that the organizers themselves are linking it with Farris’ ParentalRights.org, as seen in many places. Here, they promote the movie put together by:

Most people would agree that there are serious problems with CPS, from both extremes. We have heard of cases where children were unfairly taken from parents, as well as many cases where problems were reported and CPS did not act when they should have. Oversight and reform is needed, and few would argue that point. However, if the ParentalRights organization is knowingly teaming up with Occupiers and hacktivists to fight their battles, they are putting us all at risk. There is no doubt that the hacktivist movement has consisted of anarchists and Marxists. Is this the type of solution we are looking for? Do they think this is wise, to work on issues together with people of such radical ideology?
An email inquiry to parentalrights.org received a response from Michael Ramey, their Director of Communications & Research, stating that they were not the sponsors of this event, but they did give permission for their website to be used in the promotions.
“We gave them permission to use our name, since passage of the Parental Rights Amendment is among their primary goals. In that respect, we certainly stand with them.”
We have seen this coalition with radical Leftists from Michael Farris and his fellow Convention of States Article V proponents before, and it has caused much concern among many conservatives. As argued here, when it regarded Farris and the Convention of States working with radical groups, is there no limit to who you are willing to work with, or is the agenda all that matters? It seems only two conclusions can be drawn from these repeated coalitions. Either very questionable judgement is being used, or these Libertarian “conservatives” may not be conservatives at all.

Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 8

Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? I Peter 3:8-13 

Society for the Protection of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) 

On the TFP website, they state, “Mr. Weyrich was also a good friend of the American TFP. Since the early eighties, he regularly met with Mr. Mario Navarro da Costa of the TFP Washington Bureau, with whom he traveled on several occasions to Latin America and Europe, visiting the local TFPs and being introduced to their networks of friends. He also visited the Brazilian TFP in 1988, and met with its founder Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira. Over the years, Mr. Weyrich has proven to be an invaluable friend.”

So, what is TFP, and who was Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira? The latter was a Brazilian extremist and self-styled “prophet,” founder of a “crusade” against agrarian reform and “Communism,” which openly calls for the implementation of a world-wide “Christian” regime based on Medieval hierarchy and repression. This “crusade” is called Tradition, Family and Property (TFP). Plinio was the author of 15 books and over 2,500 essays and articles. His works include: In Defense of Catholic Action, Revolution and Counter-Revolution, The Church and the Communist State: The Impossible Coexistence, Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites in the Allocutions of Pius XII, and many others.

plinio

The militant followers, who would come to receive his blessing, had to prostrate themselves in front of Plinio with their foreheads touching the ground; they would then kiss the armchair Plinio usually sat on. This odd right-wing organization, unlike no other, publicly holds that the rich are better than the poor.

CNP charter member Morton Blackwell, who gained renewed fame at the 2012 Republican convention, also worked with Plinio de Corrêa de Olivier’s Tradition, Family & Property (TFP). Blackwell endorsed Olivier’s book, Nobility & Analagous Traditional Elites, on the necessity of restoring traditional Nobility & Elites to rule the world. In the forward, Blackwell wrote: “One does not have to accept Papal infallibility to appreciate a case persuasively made, using theological, moral, and prudential arguments. This book will convince many readers, whatever their faith, that good elites are legitimate, desirable and, yes, necessary.”

The Secret Story of a Cult Apologist by Miguel Martinez features a picture of Paul Weyrich and Morton Blackwell with the American head of TFP, which is the parent organization of CESNUR, the cult apology network for cults such as Scientology. Link

weyrich and gangThe eminent leaders of the American New Right, Paul Weyrich (left) and Morton Blackwell (center) together with the president of the USA TFP, John Spann.

CESNUR is especially virulent, (Link) particularly against the testimony of former members of “cults,” where, in certain cases Cesnur even deliberately lied in order to discredit them. Co-founded by Massimo Introvigne (Managing Director), J. Gordon Melton, and Eileen Barker, among others, CESNUR is seen by many as an organization of cult apologists. At the very least, it has an anti-anticult stance, meaning it opposes the doctrines, methods and goals of anti-cult and counter-cult organizations.

Massimo Introvigne is still today the head of CESNUR and practices as a lawyer with Jacobacci & Perani. Introvigne established CESNUR, launching an unceasing campaign, and quickly becoming, together with J. Gordon Melton and Eileen Barker, one of the most important cult apologists in the world. TFP, in the meantime, continues to uphold the same views as CESNUR, views which share several features with the visionary propaganda of groups like the Church of Scientology, “that there is a worldwide ‘anti-cult conspiracy’ manipulated by psychiatrists and Communists.” Unluckily for them, TFP was recently named in a list of destructive cults drawn up by the French Parliament.

Considering Plinio Correa de Oliveira’s love for the inquisition, it may come as a surprise that Introvigne signed a manifesto in defense of Scientology, rather than branding the US multinational with the “mark of infamy.” Is it any wonder then, that the Church of Scientology is a member of Weyrich’s American Legislative Exchange Council?

Morton Blackwell’s Tribute to Weyrich 

Paul Weyrich died in 2008 at age 66, but his profound influence on the Council for National Policy, the Heritage Foundation and ALEC lives on.

On the Leadership Institute website, Weyrich’s good friend, Morton Blackwell, gives a tribute to Paul Weyrich. It would be wise to read it as it contains valuable quotes and information.

The Leadership Institute,” which was started in 1979 by charter member and Executive Director of the CNP, Morton C. Blackwell, is allegedly a “non-partisan” educational institute that has been preparing conservatives for success in politics, government, and the news media. Here is the list of Leadership Institute’s funding. Please note, the Carthage Foundation is a Richard Mellon Scaife Foundation, also note, CNP charter member, Richard DeVos and wife, Helen’s Foundation. DeVos is the founder of Amway. As well, the Charles E. Koch Foundation, this is David and Charles Koch of Americans for Prosperity. Link Remember, David Koch is on the board of Trustees of Rockefeller University. He is also on the board of the globalist new age Aspen Institute formerly headed by new age environmentalist Maurice Strong who I wrote about in More Republican Deception. Koch is also on the board of Earthwatch Institute, an environmental, sustainability, Agenda 21 group. See this map of Koch’s many connections. David Koch also supports gay marriage and stem-cell research.

Since its 1979 founding, the Leadership Institute has trained more than 91,475 students. Notable alumni include CNP charter members, Grover Norquist who is a Council on Foreign Relation member, as well as a converted Muslim (Link Link), and Ralph Reed, former head of Pat Robertson’s Christian Coalition who was involved with fellow CNP member, Jack Abramoff’s lobbying scandals. Others include, Jeff Gannon, Senator Mitch McConnell, Governor Mike Pence, James O’Keefe, and seven members of the 112th Congress.

According to a former CNP member who found out what they were all about, he was “managed” while in the CNP by members, Morton Blackwell and Neal Hogan. He went to Blackwell’s church which is close to the capitol, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, where there was a female priest who was married to an abortion doctor. He owned 6 abortion clinics. This former CNP member was there when they asked for prayer for this abortion doctor for an emergency that morning. They also endorsed homosexual marriage.

Neal Hogan’s wife Maureen, ran the Clinton Investigation Commission and garnered millions of dollars in donations during the Clinton years. However, they were close friends with the Clinton’s, and all the funds went to help the Clintons. This Pastor, who was a former member, fully believes the CNP is an arm of the UN. Link

The umbrella organization of the Council for National Policy for the 435 member groups, is nothing more than the right arm of the Council on Foreign Relations. Their ties to the Heritage Foundation, ALEC, and other powerful organizations and people, is a spider web of such immense proportions that it would take volumes to fully connect all the dots. In Part 9, we’ll discuss Heritage’s past President, Edwin Feulner.

 

 

Grover Norquist suspends involvement with NRA Board

Reposted from the CENTER FOR SECURITY POLICY

GROVER

Grover Norquist has suspended his involvement with the Board of the National Rifle Association pending the completion of its investigation of charges that he has for seventeen years been involved with and enabled Muslim Brotherhood influence operations against the conservative movement and Republican Party. This is a welcome, and long-overdue, step towards disassociating the NRA from a man whose past and ongoing conduct is odds with the core, patriotic beliefs of the organization’s rank-and-file.

As Fox News reported (www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/04/15/gop-power-player-norquist-steps-down-from-nra-amid-probe-islamist-ties/), radio and TV talk show host Glenn Beck, who has conducted his own, extensive on-air investigation of the charges against Norquist, announced on 14 April that: “[The NRA has] assured me and their membership that this will not be a whitewash, this will be a legitimate investigation. I believe they will do the right thing in turning over every stone and following the evidence wherever it takes them.”

Highlights of Mr. Beck’s inquiry – which represents the gold standard against which the rigor and integrity of the NRA investigation will be judged – are here:

Who is Grover Norquist? – Part 2

After the insiders have established the United Socialist States of America (in fact, if not in name), the next step is the Great Merger of all nations of the world into a dictatorial world government. … The Insiders’ code word for the world super state is “new world order,” a phrase often used by Richard Nixon. The Council on Foreign Relations states in its Study No. 7: “The U.S. must strive to: A. BUILD A NEW INTERNATIONAL ORDER. A world government has always been the object of the Communists.” Gary Allen (1936-86) American journalist

The New World Order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down…but in the end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal assault.” CFR member Richard Gardner, writing in the April 1974 issue of the CFR’s journal, Foreign Affairs.

Remember, Norquist is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, yet he claims he’s a “conservative” by his membership in the so-called secretive “conservative Christian” Council for National Policy. Kelleigh Nelson

Norquist and Islam

In 2004, at age 48, Grover married a Palestinian Muslim named Samah Alrayyes, a Kuwaiti Public Relations specialist who was formerly a director of the Islamic Free Market Institute and specialist at the Bureau of Legislative and Public Affairs at United States Agency for International Development (USAID). (USAID is the United States federal government agency primarily responsible for administering civilian foreign aid.) The couple have two children adopted from abroad. (The Islamic Free Market Institute was founded by Norquist and Khaled Saffuri.) Grover has said he’s a “white bread Methodist,” however, a devout Muslim like Samah supposedly would not marry a non-Muslim, and of late, Grover has refrained from answering the question of his religion.

Gary Johnson, Jr., wrote, Khaled Saffuri: Where is He Now in September of 2010. Here is a portion of that article:

Grover founded the Islamic Free Market Institute (referred to as Islamic Institute) with Khaled Saffuri in 1998. The Safa Trust donated at least $35,000, and the International Institute of Islamic Thought contributed $11,000. Both organizations were alleged to be part of the so-called SAAR Network of interrelated business and non-profit entities with ties to sources of terrorism financing, and were among the subjects of a March 20, 2002 raid conducted by the U.S. Custom Service under the auspices of Operation Green Quest.

Before linking up with Grover Norquist, Khaled Saffuri was involved in the American Muslim Council (AMC). Saffuri’s boss, Abdurahman Alamoudi, the Executive Director of the AMC, utilized his links with over 20 Muslim organizations in America to peddle influence in the Clinton White House. 

The Operation Green Quest raids led to the convictions of two people, including Abdurahman Alamoudi,, Jack Abramoff who worked for the SAAR Foundation. Alamoudi admitted that he plotted with Libya to assassinate the Saudi ruler and was sentenced to 23 years in jail. Alamoudi would provide Grover Norquist with $20,000 to help create the Islamic Free Market Institute. (And Alamoudi allegedly gave $50,000 to the lobbying group Janus-Merritt Strategies, which Norquist co-founded.) A further five years down the road, in 2003, Alamoudi would be captured with over a quarter million dollars in funds from Libya’s Qaddafi, earmarked to support jihad.

Alamoudi was among a group of Muslim Brotherhood operatives who were invited on May 1, 2000 to meet with Bush in the Texas governor’s mansion. Saffuri was designated the Bush campaign’s Muslim outreach coordinator and Norquist assisted another prominent Brother, Sami al-Arian, to obtain a commitment from candidate Bush that, if elected, he would prohibit the use of classified intelligence evidence in deportation proceedings.”

Three years later Sami al-Arian, the University of South Florida professor, would be brought up on charges of supporting Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

These connections alone should give pause to anyone truly believing Norquist is a conservative. Yet, he is still lauded for his anti-tax stances and getting various congress criminals to sign his petition of no new taxes. In reality, our taxes seem to rise every year, or perhaps even more often, and will take huge leaps in 2013 with Obamacare. The truth is, despite what these congress people sign, every time they have the opportunity, they vote for bills that increase our taxes and put more monies in the federal coffers. Nevertheless, Norquist claims his fame in the signatures he has garnered from these politicians stating they will not increase taxes.

President George W. Bush and Norquist

On September 26, 2001, President Bush gathered 15 prominent Muslim and Arab Americans at the White House. Bush proclaimed that “the teachings of Islam are teachings of peace and good.” He also stated that Christians and Muslims “worship the same God.” Norquist had arranged this meeting with these Islamic supremacists to get the President to show how Muslims rejected terrorism. Bush allowed this meeting because he trusted Norquist who had vouched for the Muslim leaders. Grover Norquist, is a member of the Board of Directors of the American Conservative Union, which hosts CPAC. The Conservative Political Action Committee was founded in 1973 and features establishment republican speakers such as Limbaugh, Reagan, Palin, etc. This would seem to be one of the top reasons Bush would trust Norquist’s judgment.

Yet, Norquist had formed alliances with prominent Islamic radicals who have ties to both the Saudis and to Libya and to Palestine Islamic Jihad and who are now under indictment by U.S. authorities.

President’s Bush’s trust of Norquist was obviously terribly misplaced. Norquist introduced Dr. Yahya Basha, president of the American Muslim Council. AMC is an organization whose leaders have repeatedly called Hamas “freedom fighters.” AMC is also a member of the American Muslim Political Coordination Council (AMPCC), along with the American Muslim Alliance (AMA), Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). AMPCC’s primary concern is to coordinate the member organizations on activism and lobbying, something Norquist has great skill at doing. Remember Grover was a proficient lobbyist with Jack Abramoff regarding the Indian tribes.

Muzammil Siddiqi, president of the Islamic Society of North America was also present. He had told a Washington crowd chanting pro-Hezbollah slogans that, “America has to learn if you remain on the side of injustice, the wrath of god (Allah) will come.” Another invited Muslim, Salam Al-Marayati, executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, actually told a radio audience on the afternoon of September 11, 2001, that “we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list.”

Nihad Awad was introduced to the President as well. Awad is co-founder and executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR is allegedly the premier Muslim civil rights organization. However, U.S. Terror expert, Steve Emerson said, “CAIR, which touts itself as America’s premier Muslim civil rights organization, was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Terror trial.” He noted that CAIR co-founders Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad attended “a 1993 Philadelphia meeting where the HAMAS members and supporters discussed a strategy to kill the Oslo Peace Accords, which threatened to marginalize HAMAS. The group also discussed ways to improve HAMAS fundraising in America.”

From Pamela Geller’s article Grover Norquist’s Jihad, Steven Spencer, author, scholar, and co-founder with Pamela Geller of Freedom Defense Initiative, stated, “CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Honest Ibe Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. CAIR has warred against free speech in the past.

Support for Ground Zero Mosque

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf [1] and proponents of his plan to build a 13-story Islamic center near Ground Zero were helped by Grover Norquist. Grover and his friends distributed a letter saying that the Republicans fighting Imam Rauf’s plan are infringing upon religious freedom and are “alienating millions of Arab American and Muslim American voters who believe, as we do, in the principles of our party—individual liberty, traditional values, and the rule of law.”

Among those signing the letter were Suhail A. Khan, listed as the Chairman of the Conservative Inclusion Coalition and Norquist’s wife, Samah, listed as a Senior Advisor to Arab and Muslim Outreach for the U.S. Agency for International Development under the Bush Administration.

Grover Norquist, Muslim Mole, by Ryan Mauro, states, “Khan’s mother served on the board of CAIR’s California branch and Khan accused critics of CAIR of exploiting the Fort Hood shooting for their ‘political partisan and worse, for their racist ends.’ ” Frank Gaffney, President of the Center for Security Policy, told me that an FBI Special Agent involved in terrorism investigations informed him that Khan is indeed a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Khan was also intimately  involved in Norquist’s efforts to help these groups develop a partnership with the Bush Administration. He was reported as being the one at the White House responsible for managing the outreach to the Brotherhood-tied groups whose events he has a history of speaking for.”

This is who Grover Norquist supports. Like the Soros-funded study, “Fear, Inc.,” from the Center for America Progress, Grover labels anyone who disagrees with his views as “Islamophobic.”

In a Human Events article from October, 2011, Representative Frank Wolf, Republican from Virginia, called out Grover Norquist for his ties to Islamic supremacists and jihad terrorists. Norquist never answered the charges. He used the tried and true tactic of the leftists by screaming racism, victim status, and anti-Muslim bigotry. Then he topped it off by making personal attacks against Wolf.

Conclusion

AT CPAC in 2010, Grover Norquist told a George Soros publication that Islam “is completely consistent with the U.S. Constitution and a free and open society,” a statement that reveals either a profound lack of understanding of Islamic law, or a conscious effort at deception.

Norquist is still a member of the secretive Council for National Policy who claims to be a cabal of rightwing groups, even though we know differently. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and he has documented ties to Islamist terrorist groups. The phony right has long been in bed with the left’s agenda and Norquist is a prime example. But what really boggles my mind is the statement by Jack Abramoff that a new organization modeled on Grover’s ATR is needed to push a serious agenda of legislative changes to clean up the lobbying corruption.

Of interest is that Jack Abramoff is an Orthodox Jew, and his good friend, Grover Norquist is not only very close to Islamic groups, but also is married to a Muslim woman. These groups and their leaders have documented ties to Islamic jihadists, and Grover has accepted money from many of these Islamic leaders.

I’ve known for decades about the establishment Republicans being in bed with the left. Nothing ever changes. The quotes from Carroll Quigley in part one of this article make that clear. Norquist is an easy phony to spot, unlike many of the other phony “conservative Christians” and their groups. Most others wear such amazing masks of conservative covering that it is terribly difficult for the uneducated to grasp the depths of deception. We all need to have greater discernment in judgment.

Who is Grover Norquist? Part 1

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” Marcus Cicero

I recently finished Jack Abramoff’s book, Capitol Punishment. Link Abramoff is a long time member of the secretive Council for National Policy (CNP) which I’ve often mentioned in previous articles. Link I found it interesting that throughout the book, Jack’s friends and co-workers were also CNP members; mentioned were Ralph Reed, Howard Phillips, Dick Armey, Tom DeLay, and Grover Norquist. According to an investigative report from the Senate Indian Affairs Committee on the Jack Abramoff scandal, released in June 2006, Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) served as a “conduit” for funds that flowed from Abramoff’s clients to finance grass-roots lobbying campaigns. Records show that donations from the Choctaw and Kickapoo tribes to ATR were coordinated in part by Abramoff, and in some cases preceded meetings between the tribes and the White House. Abramoff and Norquist are long time friends and in their youth they were partners in College Republicans.

Conservatives Gather For Annual CPAC Convention

At the end of the book, Abramoff states, “In my view, only the creation of a new organization dedicated to a serious agenda of reform can push the legislative changes which must be enacted to clean up our system. The organization should be modeled like the effective and powerful group Grover built, Americans for Tax Reform, and hold Congressional feet to the fire in the same forceful way ATR does it.” 

I read Abramoff’s final statement and I wanted to scream! Obviously he learned nothing during his stint in prison! Remember the words of Clinton’s mentor, Carroll Quigley, professor of history at Georgetown University and author of the 1966 book, Tragedy and Hope. “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.” 

Abramoff never mentioned anything in his book about Norquist’s membership in either the Council for National Policy nor the Council on Foreign Relations. Link In Carroll Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope, he said this about the CFR, “The Council on Foreign Relations is the American branch of a society which originated in England … [and] … believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.” 

The Real Grover Norquist 

Grover Glenn Norquist (born October 19, 1956) is an American lobbyist, claims to be a conservative activist, and is founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform. He grew up in Weston, Massachusetts and graduated in 1974 from Harvard where he obtained both a B.A. and an M.B.A.

Norquist is a member of the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association and in 2010, he joined the advisory board of GOProud, an organization of conservative gay Republicans. He is also on the boards of the Hispanic Leadership Fund, the Indian-American Republican Caucus, and ParentalRights.org, an organization that wishes to add a Parental Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution. The dangers of trying to add an amendment to our Constitution today have been written about many times. With today’s political corruption, adding an amendment could easily lead to a Constitutional Convention and a new socialist/communist constitution. Link  Link.

Grover was the economist and chief speechwriter for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce from 1983-1984. Erica Carle wrote a three part article entitled, “Who is in Charge of the New World Order,” that exposes the Chamber’s one-world-order agenda.

Norquist was Executive Director for the National Taxpayers’ Union (NTU) from 1978 to 1982, the same years we fought the first accelerated drive for a Constitutional Convention under the guise of a Balanced Budget Amendment. James Dale Davidson founded the NTU in 1969 and was the major force for a Con-Con especially during the years Norquist was Executive Director. The ruse back then was a Balanced Budget Amendment, the same excuse they’re using today. Link

Grover was formerly a federally registered lobbyist for Microsoft. The CEO of Microsoft is Bill Gates, who recently donated $1 billion to the United Nations for its population control agenda. See also, Bill Gates And Neo-Eugenics: Vaccines To Reduce Population | Rockefeller Foundation.

The ATR founder also supports Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens and has been a facilitator of Islamist infiltration of the right. Even fellow CNP member Joe Farah of World Net Daily wants to dump Grover from the so-called “Conservative Movement.” Norquist is staunchly against Arizona’s immigration law and totally supports the 13 story Ground Zero Mosque, and  Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf.

American Legislative Exchange Council

ATR is a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). ALEC is a member of the Council for National Policy and was founded by Paul Weyrich, the former grand poobah of the CNP. ALEC is a corporate bill mill. It’s not just a lobby or front group, ALEC is one of the most powerful unelected councils in the country. Corporations hand to state legislators their “wish lists” of legislation to benefit their bottom lines. The membership of ALEC is 98% corporate and the corporate membership is the one that funds almost all of ALEC’s operations. They have bought their way into the process by which corporate lobbyists and special interest reps vote with elected officials to approve “model” bills. ALEC’s legislative leaders are responsible for getting the bills introduced and passed. They introduce the bills in their statehouses as their own brilliant ideas. They never disclose that corporations wrote and vetted these bills along with politicians behind closed doors at ALEC meetings. So, everyone who is a member of ALEC is influencing not only state bills, but likely most federal bills as well, written by corporations with vested interests…along with lobbyists like Grover. ALEC is also a long time supporter of a Constitutional Convention. More on ALEC in a future article.

Choice, Vouchers and Charter Schools

In 1995, Norquist was the keynote speaker at the National Conference on School Choice, which is sponsored by the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA). The NCPA is a free market think tank primarily funded by private foundations established by wealthy neo-conservative business families and billionaires, including Charles and David Koch. I wrote about David Koch in The Tea Parties, Part One. Koch is a member of the globalist new age Aspen Institute formerly headed by socialist UN member Maurice Strong, who wrote UN Agenda 21. Link How typical of Council for National Policy members like Norquist to argue for the communist School Choice.

Other Conference speakers included Paul Hill of the Rand Corporation.   RAND developed the mind control Delphi method in the 1950s for the U.S. Department of Defense. It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war. Also present was Peter Flanigan who was assistant to the president of the United States under Nixon and founded the Center for Education Innovation at the Manhattan Institute. The Manhattan Institute was founded in 1978 by none other than former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, William Casey.

A number of Council for National Policy members are promoting School Choice, Vouchers, and Charter Schools including the Family Research Council, Eagle Forum, James Dobson formerly with Focus on the Family, and The Heritage Foundation.

Heritage was founded in 1973 by three CNP members, grand poobah Paul Weyrich, Edwin Fuelner and Joseph Coors. Richard Mellon Scaife, who funds both sides of the aisle was a major early contributor and has given a total of $19.6 million to Heritage. Scaife initially funded Heritage groundbreaking efforts to the tune of $900,000, and he currently serves as vice-chairman of the Heritage Foundation board of trustees. Link Scaife also funds Planned Parenthood and had a full page ad in the WSJ on April 4, 2011, stating, “Why Conservatives Should Oppose Efforts to Defund Planned Parenthood.”

Grover’s relationship with Heritage Foundation, started in 1994 when he worked with Newt Gingrich and the Heritage Foundation to draft the Contract with America. See Chey Simonton’s, The Rockefeller/Heritage Connection for the truth about Heritage Foundation. Link Heritage is presently promoting Grover’s new book, Debacle: Obama’s War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future. Link

Charlotte Iserbyt, former Senior Policy Advisor in the U.S. Department of Education blew the whistle in the 80s on government activities withheld from the public. Here’s what she said about School Choice, “School Choice is the Trojan Horse to bring our country down. The tragedy of the matter is that many of our own people are involved in the demise of our Constitutional system of government and are willing to merge with Russia (the old Soviet Union). Charter schools are ungraded, continuous progress, mastery learning, come under the Effective School Research label, are international, involved with multinationals, and use the Skinner method.” Link Link Another wonderful article by Jed Brown that exposes the communist rot of School Choice is The Dirty Little Secret of School Choice and Charter Schools.

In a 1995 letter from Charlotte Iserbyt to Phyllis Schlafly, Charlotte exposes choice, vouchers, and Charter schools. Charlotte has the documented proof that Outcome Based Education (OBE) is communist and based on the 1933 Eight-Year Study drawn up by Progressive Education Association types (PEA being a communist front). These PEA members travelled back and forth to the Soviet Union in the thirties.

Charlotte also included the draft of a Charter School Initiative in Washington state by Jim Spady, a friend of new age futurist, Barbara Marx Hubbard, recommending a complete move from representative government to participatory government, using councils and unelected persons!  She attached copies of letters from those who supported Spady’s initiative along with letters from luminaries who supported this communist change to American education. They include former Reagan education czar, William Bennett, Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander, and of course, Grover Norquist. I urge you to thoroughly read and research the people mentioned in Charlotte’s letter. It is essential people understand that Phyllis never responded to Iserbyt’s letter, and that they had worked closely together on education for many years with Charlotte providing Schlafly with most of her information for “Child Abuse in the Classroom.” By all means purchase The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America on Amazon.

In Part 2, we’ll discuss Grover’s influence with former President George W. Bush and how he ushered silver-tongued jihadists into the Oval Office of our President after the worst attack ever on American soil.
