Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 9

Can we regain our country and our freedom? The answer is, only if we can bear the truth that our forefathers knew and took for granted. If the generation of 100 years ago could come back today they would be appalled at the thinking of Americans today. They would think, surely we have been occupied by a foreign power. They would be right. We have been occupied, but not by a military power. We have succumbed to a long period of ‘public education’ and ‘freedom of religion’ which has turned Americans into zombies incapable of rational thought and choice. Even worse, we are traitors to our country and to ourselves.” The Don Bell Report 

Heritage Foundation and Edwin Feulner 

Feulner

CNP charter member Ed Feulner took over the Heritage Foundation leadership with a nomination from Richard Mellon Scaife, who sits on the board as Vice Chairman. Dr. Feulner served as President of Heritage from 1977 to 2013. He was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up in Elmhurst. After receiving an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business in 1964, he attended the Jesuit founded, Georgetown University and the London School of Economics, where he was a Richard M. Weaver Fellow. (Weaver was allegedly a member of the Fabian Socialist Americans for Democratic Action. However, unlike today’s neo-conservatives, he valued personal property rights to the point of agrarianism, yet believed in a form of communitarianism.) Feulner then earned a doctorate at the University of Edinburgh.

Let’s take a look at Feulner’s early education to see what kind of ideas may have been formed in his youth. The London School of Economics dates from 1895, when the School was founded by Fabian Socialist Society members Sidney and Beatrice Webb, Graham Wallas, and George Bernard Shaw, (a devout supporter of Joseph Stalin), with funding provided by private philanthropy, including a bequest of £20,000 from Henry Hunt Hutchinson to the Fabian Society, whose wife was a Fabian member.

Co-founder of the London School of Economics, Sidney Webb, was a British socialist, economist, and reformer. He was one of the early members of the Fabian Society in 1884, along with fellow communist, George Bernard Shaw (they joined three months after its inception). With his wife, Beatrice Webb, and fellow socialists, Annie Besant, Graham Wallas, Edward R. Pease, Hubert Bland, and Sydney Olivier, Shaw and Webb turned the Fabian Society into the pre-eminent political-intellectual society of England in the Edwardian era and beyond.

Of special interest is occult leader, Annie Besant who was a leading speaker for the Fabian Society and the Marxist Social Democratic Federation (SDF). In 1890, Besant met Helena Blavatsky, and over the next few years her interest in theosophy grew while her interest in secular matters waned. She became a member of the Theosophical Society and a prominent lecturer on the subject. In 1907 she became president of the Theosophical Society.

This is the educational background Feulner came from prior to going to Washington DC and into the neo-conservative politics of the right. Gives a bit different perspective on the man, doesn’t it?

Feulner began his Washington career as analyst for the Center for Strategic and International Studies, then called the Center for Strategic Studies. He later became a congressional aide to congressman (and later Secretary of Defense) Melvin Laird. Feulner subsequently became a long-serving executive assistant to Illinois Republican congressman Phil Crane. (I remember Crane well, so many conservatives were backing him and promoting him, yet the “false friends” had already targeted and partially neutralized him). Prior to becoming the President of the Heritage Foundation, Feulner was the Executive Director of the Republican Study Committee.

Let’s take a look at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) so as to understand how the left and right work together, and the training Feulner received from them. The center hosts the Statesmen’s Forum, a bipartisan venue for international leaders to present their views. Past speakers have included UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and National Security Advisor Tom Donilon.

The CSIS Chairman of the Board of Trustees is Sam Nunn, a former Democratic Senator from Georgia and longtime chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services. Former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense John J. Hamre has been the president and chief executive officer of CSIS since April 2000.

The board of trustees includes many former senior government officials including Soviet agent, Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, William Cohen, George Argyros and Brent Scowcroft. The board also includes major corporate business leaders as well as prominent figures in the fields of finance, private equity, real estate, academia and media.

CSIS has broadened its reach into public policy analysis under the leadership of Hamre and Nunn. The Department of Defense, as part of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, that’s NDAA folks, commissioned CSIS to conduct an independent assessment of U.S. interests in the Asia-Pacific Region. Also, in May 2009, President Barack Obama thanked the CSIS bipartisan Commission on Cyber security for its help in developing the Obama administration‘s policies on cyber warfare. The center has also been highly influential in the creation of the White House’s foreign policy. The first professional staff member hired was Richard V. Allen who later served in the Reagan administration. Allen was a Heritage fellow when he helped draft NAFTA and promote it through Heritage Foundation. The big goodbye to American jobs!

In 2012, CSIS hosted U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she delivered a keynote address on “U.S. Strategic Engagement with North Africa in an Era of Change,” that addressed the security of embassies in the wake of the 2012 Benghazi attack.

There was also a strong connection between Heritage and the Rev. Sun Myung Moon (founder of the “Moonies” as well as of the Washington Times). This first appeared in a 1975 congressional investigation on the Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA) activities in the US. The report noted, “In 1975, Ed Feulner was introduced to KCIA station chief Kim Yung.” Salonen was head of Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church in the United States. The Freedom Leadership Foundation (FLF), a political arm of Moon’s Unification network, was linked to the World Anti-Communist League. Here is a short list of the Unification Church’s front groups, (note the UN-nongovernmental organization list). In the early 1980s, the KCIA began making donations to Heritage Foundation. In turn, Heritage established an Asian Studies Center.

Feulner was treasurer of the Mont Pelerin Society, an international organization of economists whose members included Henry Hazlitt (author of “A New Constitution Now”), and William F. Buckley, CFR, CIA, and Skull and Bonesman. (Do yourselves a favor and purchase John McManus’s book, William F.Buckley, Pied Piper for the Establishment.) Hazlitt’s book is extremely dangerous inasmuch as Hazlitt states things like, “an amendment could be proposed that would strike out everything after “We the people,” and that, of course, includes the Bill of Rights. He was suggesting that everything after “We the people” on down be scrapped and rewritten, which is amazing, as this document has provided more human dignity and freedom for more people than any other in recorded history. He also stated, “When I wrote A New Constitution Now I was sure, as I still am, that parliamentary government tends to be a better form of government than our own presidential system.” He and Paul Weyrich would agree. We would likely end up with this proposed Constitution for the New States of America.

Here is a list of the prominent Mont Pelerin Society members. Other prominent MPS members who advanced to policy positions included the late Chancellor Ludwig Erhard of West Germany, President Luigi Einaudi of Italy, Chairman Arthur F. Burns of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board and U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz.

Edwin Feulner is also a member of the Board of the NWO promoting National Chamber Foundation. Link He is a longtime officer and director of three grant-making foundations: the Sarah Scaife Foundation (Richard Mellon Scaife’s Foundation), the Aequus Institute (headed by Larry Arnn of Hillsdale College who is promoting charters/vouchers/choice, and is on the board of Heritage Foundation) and the Thomas A. Roe Foundation, charter member of the CNP, as well as Heritage Foundation, Mont Pelerin Society, etc.

Feulner is the former President of the Philadelphia Society, and past Director of the Sequoia Bank, the Council for National Policy, the Acton Institute, the International Republican Institute (which has been chaired by John McCain), the American Council in Germany, the Lehrman Institute and George Mason University.

He served as a member of the Gingrich-Mitchell Congressional U.N. Reform Task Force (2005) and on the Congressional Commission on International Financial Institutions (“Meltzer Commission“) from 1999-2000. Here is a list of those who served on the U.N. Reform Task Force. Newt Gingrich has been a Heidi and Alvin Toffler Third Waver since the 70s. He believes the Constitution is outdated and there should be no private property rights. Link

Edwin Feulner was the Vice Chairman of the National Commission on Economic Growth and Tax Reform (“Kemp Commission”) from 1995-1996. He also was Chairman of the bipartisan U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy (1982-91), served as the Public Member (Ambassador) of the U.S. Delegation to the United Nations Second Special Session on Disarmament in New York, and a consultant for domestic policy to President Reagan, and an adviser to several government departments and agencies.

The United Nations Office of Disarmament Affairs comprises several administrative offices and five branches: Conference on Disarmament Secretariat and Conference Support Branch(Geneva), Weapons of Mass Destruction Branch (WMD), Conventional Arms (including Practical Disarmament) Branch (CAB), Regional Disarmament Branch (RDB) and Information and Outreach Branch (IOB). RDB further manages three regional centers.

Branches and centers are organized as follows:

branches

Edwin J. Feulner had a yearly income, including deferred compensation, of $1,098,612. Here is the 2012-990 for Heritage Foundation. The $25 dollars per month, which Heritage collects from grassroots members, goes to funding the salaries of their President and other notable members like Edwin Meese, the latter who collects half a million per year.

When Feulner recently retired, former neo-con Senator Jim DeMint replaced him as president. In Part 10, we’ll look at the new President of Heritage and the CNP’s propensity for Dominionists within their membership.

 

 

 

Ted Cruz is No Larry McDonald – Part 3

“We, like those in all emergent totalitarian states, have been mentally damaged by a carefully orchestrated historical amnesia, a state-induced stupidity. We increasingly do not remember what it means to be free. And because we do not remember, we do not react with appropriate ferocity when it is revealed that our freedom has been taken from us. The structures of the corporate state must be torn down. Its security apparatus must be destroyed. And those who defend corporate totalitarianism, including the leaders of the two major political parties, fatuous academics, pundits and a bankrupt press, must be driven from the temples of power. Mass street protests and prolonged civil disobedience are our only hope. A failure to rise up—which is what the corporate state is counting upon—will see us enslaved.”….Chris Hedges

Cruz and the Phony Religious Right

The September 8, 2013 Politico story from Stephanie Simon documented U.S. Senator Ted Cruz’ ties to pseudo-historian David Barton (one of the more influential national middle-aged leaders on the Christian right). Let’s take a quick look at David Barton. He is an informal advisor to neo-cons, Mike Huckabee who had endorsed fellow neo-con, Lamar Alexander for his third term in the Senate,  Huckabee also believes Americans should be forced at gunpoint to listen to David Barton (video link), and fellow pro-Dominionist (via her close affiliations, with Francis Schaeffer and John Eidsmoe  Link) Michele Bachmann, as well as Third Waver, and Alvin and Heidi Toffler supporter, Newt Gingrich. Barton’s endorsement of Cruz was widely seen as a big boost for his upstart campaign to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate. Barton also campaigned for Florida Senator Marco Rubio in 2010 and has long backed Texas Governor Rick Perry. Perry’s ties to the Dominionist New Apostolic Reform were evident at his August, 2011 prayer fest prior to his announcement as a presidential candidate. Link Mr. Barton, whose academic degree is in Christian Education from Oral Roberts University, has been labeled a biased amateur who cherry-picks quotes from history and the Bible. Both secular critics and Christian scholars have denounced Barton as a fraud who manipulates and misrepresents history to serve his political goals. In his book, The Jefferson Lies, he portrayed Jefferson as an orthodox Christian. Link

From Thomas Kidd at World News Service:

Jay W. Richards, senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, and author with James Robison of Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family, and Freedom Before It’s Too Late, says in recent months he has grown increasingly troubled about Barton’s writings, so he asked 10 conservative Christian professors to assess Barton’s work. Their response was negative. Some examples: Glenn Moots of Northwood University wrote that Barton in The Jefferson Lies is so eager to portray Jefferson as sympathetic to Christianity that he misses or omits obvious signs that Jefferson stood outside “orthodox, creedal, confessional Christianity.”

A second professor, Glenn Sunshine of Central Connecticut State University, said that Barton’s characterization of Jefferson’s religious views is “unsupportable.” A third, Gregg Frazer of The Master’s College, evaluated Barton’s video America’s Godly Heritage and found many of its factual claims dubious, such as a statement that “52 of the 55 delegates at the Constitutional Convention were ‘orthodox, evangelical Christians.'” Richards emphasizes that he and the scholars he consulted about Barton are politically conservative evangelicals or Catholics. They largely agree with Barton’s belief that Christian principles played a major role in America’s founding, but Richards argues that Barton’s books and videos are full of “embarrassing factual errors, suspiciously selective quotes, and highly misleading claims.”

A full-scale, newly published critique of Barton is coming from Professors Warren Throckmorton and Michael Coulter of Grove City College, a largely conservative Christian school in Pennsylvania. Their book Getting Jefferson Right: Fact Checking Claims about Our Third President (Salem Grove Press), argues that Barton “is guilty of taking statements and actions out of context and simplifying historical circumstances.”

Because Barton’s research has often been shown to be in error, he has become a favorite target of skeptics who point to his errors and use it as ammunition in attacking believers. In short, carelessness or lack of integrity is counterproductive to the cause we would advance.

As well, in a shocking interview with Jon Stewart, in May of 2011, Barton is totally comfortable with Shariah law and claims it is compatible with our Constitution. Link

Last November, 2013, David Barton sat in for Glenn Beck on his program. He spent the entire hour on the Constitution, and on an Article V call for a convention. Like many of the phony right, as well as the George Soros’ leftists, Barton is pushing a con-con. Link

It is not surprising that David Barton is a Cruz supporter, as he and Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, are dominionists who believe in the Seven Mountains mandate.  This fits well with both Barton’s and Cruz’s belief systems wherein a Christian theocracy should rule. Here and here are definitions of Dominionism/Reconstructionism.

Reverend Rafael Cruz

Rafael Cruz is a pastor based in North Texas serving as the Director of Purifying Fire Ministries, ministering in the U.S., Mexico and Central America. Purifying Fire Ministries was founded by Suzanne Hinn, ex-wife and then wife again of Benny Hinn. The Hinns are preaching heretical doctrines, dealing in faux emotions and invented manifestations of the Holy Spirit at the most convenient and opportune fundraising moments. They also know where the money is today, and have hitched their wagons to the New Apostolic Reform, or Dominionism.

The Bible does not promise a miracle-working revival at the end of the church age before the return of Christ. It promises, rather, great deception (Matthew 24:24; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-10; Revelation 13:13,14). Many gullible people are deceived by miracles, but the Bible warns that miracles can be counterfeited. As we see in the above cited verses, every time the New Testament mentions miracles at the end of this age, it refers to them as deceptions. Miracles do not impart faith. Most of the people who witnessed Christ’s miracles did not believe. Faith comes only by hearing the Word of God, the Bible — “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). Hebrews chapter 11 also tells us that faith comes through God’s Word. It is the miracles that are recorded in Scripture that give faith (John 20:30,31).

I could find nothing that indicated Rafael Cruz has a divinity degree, and Purifying Fire Ministries apparently has no church buildings. Rafael is also allegedly a professor of Bible and Theology, and the president of Kingdom Translation Services. Again, I could find no documented evidence of where he is a professor and where he went to school/seminary.

Senator Cruz has kept his 74 year old pastor father involved with his political shop, using him not merely as a confidant and stand-in, but as a special envoy. He is Cruz’s preferred introductory speaker, his best messenger with evangelicals, and his favorite on-air sidekick. Ted Cruz says his firebrand father doesn’t speak for him, but the senator’s aide is booking Rafael Cruz’s speaking gigs. Link

In an August 2012 sermon at an Irving, Texas, mega church that helped elect Ted Cruz to the United States Senate, Rafael Cruz, indicated that his son was among the evangelical Christians who are anointed as “kings” to take control of all sectors of society. This is an agenda commonly referred to as the “Seven Mountains” mandate, and “bring the spoils of war to the priests,” thus helping to bring about a prophesied “great transfer of wealth,” from the “wicked” to righteous gentile believers. That would be particularly nice…especially to have Soros/Gates and other wealthy elitists’ monies transferred to Christians.

The Seven Mountains mandate refers to Christians being instructed to conquer the seven “mountains of culture” that have seldom been in Christian control since the Reformation. These seven mountains are business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, the family, and religion. All this started back in the 70s with two charter members of the Council for National Policy, Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ, and Loren Cunningham of Youth With a Mission (YWAM). As the story goes, Cunningham and Bright each had a spiritual experience in which the vision was imparted to them by God of “seven chief categories of society” where the church needed to “concentrate” to “turn the nations back to God.” Link

Here is a video of Rafael Cruz describing the “great transfer of wealth” and the role of anointed “kings” in various sectors of society, including government, who are to “bring the spoils of war to the priests.” Jesus never emphasized the need for money in preaching the gospel, in sending His own out, or even in their day to day affairs.

What Raphael Cruz didn’t say, was that Ted Cruz was subsequently blessed and anointed by prominent dominionist pastors, in effect as a “king” in the political/governmental sphere, at a special blessing ceremony at the Marriott Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa, at a July 19th-20th, 2013 rally designed to draw pastors into politics.

Coffee with Kissinger

One would think Raphael Cruz would inform his son about Soviet Agent Kissinger, but apparently that was not the case. Senator Ted Cruz uploaded this image to his official Facebook page on January 29th of himself having coffee with Henry Kissinger, with the tagline, “Honored to share a few moments with Dr. Kissinger and hear his thoughts on the challenges facing our nation.”

Cruz and Kissinger

Cruz undoubtedly would agree with Kissinger on trade. He says in the below video that he is for “fast tracking” trade agreements and supports Obama doing same. Apparently Cruz cares little about American jobs, and even less about American sovereignty. Video

Sleeping With the Enemy

Ted Cruz met his wife, Heidi, while working on the George W. Bush presidential campaign of 2000. Cruz’s wife is currently head of the Southwest Region in the Investment Management Division of Goldman, Sachs & Co. Link Check out Matt Taibbi’s article in Rolling Stone magazine, “The People vs. Goldman Sachs.” Ms. Cruz began her career as an investment banker with JPMorgan in New York, focusing on international structured finance and subsequently on Latin America mergers and acquisitions. Heidi also worked in the White House for CFR member, Condoleezza Rice. She has a Harvard MBA, was raised a Seventh Day Adventist, and is a vegetarian. Ted is on Heidi’s Goldman Sachs’ health care plan.

Heidi is also on the Council on Foreign Relations’ infamous “North American Union” task force and is co-author of same. Link   Heidi Cruz is a Term Member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). See this map of the CFR.

Conclusions

I would love to write an article about true old-right conservatives who are staunch Constitutionalists and are fighting to restore the Republic. Sadly, this is not the case. Anyone who still believes we are safe with men or women who have an “R” behind their names has not been paying attention to the presidents and Congress criminals who have given us the unconstitutional and draconian laws in the last 100 or more years.

Just look back a few decades. Do you remember Bob Dole’s failure to repeal the Assault Weapons Ban? Link How about George H.W. Bush’s famous lie, “Read my lips, no new taxes.”? Link   We are now stuck with W’s Patriot Act signed in 2001. Link Just think about George W. Bush’s bailout packages which cost American taxpayers thousands of dollars per citizen….Link The RNC runs presidential candidates like John McCain, and Willard Romney, neither of whom have ever felt it necessary to follow the Constitution. There are no jobs in America today, the manufacturing industry is gone…why? Because Republican President George H.W. Bush formalized NAFTA in 1986. In 1994, Bill Clinton was President when it went into effect.

Those mentioned, along with the majority of Republican congressmen and women have not had the interests of the American people in their hearts or minds. I keep hearing them referred to as RINO’s, but they are in fact, neo-conservative Trotskyites.

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-cons Irving Kristol and William F. Buckley, who emasculated true old right conservatism, they 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.

Leon Trotsky must not be ignored. Trotsky, unlike Stalin and Lenin, favored the slow and patient imposition of Marxist socialism without murders and gulags. Trotsky wished for the people to “choose” Marxism, rather than having it forced upon them. Irving Kristol, father of Bill Kristol, stated, “I regard myself as lucky to have been a young Trotskyite and I have not a single bitter memory.”

The current followers of Trotskyite socialism and internationalism are the neo-conservatives. Most have no objection to steering America away from personal freedom and national independence and literally undermining and eroding the people’s freedom. There are several books which expose the reality of the Republican neo-con Trotskyites. Undeniably the best, is John McManus’s brilliant book, “William F. Buckley, Pied Piper for the Establishment.” This book is so well documented, you will want to keep it in your library for reference.

As for Ted Cruz, his list of supporters and affiliations should give any true old-right conservative Constitutionalist pause. Unfortunately, without money and connections, honest men and women will find it very difficult to attain any political office. Nevertheless, when one sells one’s soul to attain the political office or power, they are then owned by those who put them there. Ted Cruz is no different.
