Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 16

They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.  Proverbs 28:4  Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the Lord understand all things. Proverbs 28:5 

“The people who will not be ruled by God, will be ruled by tyrants.” – William Penn 

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” Samuel Adams, 1776

Sun Myung Moon, Charlatan and Occultist

Robert Parry of Consortiumnews.com has done the finest research on Moon, his affiliations, and his monetary buying of the right. Much of the following information is from Bob Parry’s superb research. I have most of Bob Parry’s books in my library; his numerous books are available on Amazon.

Most Americans knew Moon was a charlatan and a lunatic similar to L. Ron Hubbard of Scientology fame. Moon has made his fortune on the brainwashed and propagandized followers who sold flowers on street corners and gave all their funds to Moon. He was a narcissistic megalomaniac.

In April 2002, Moon received the latest in a long series of earth shattering religious visions, this one being especially noteworthy. In it, Moon learned that he had been selected as “the Savior, Messiah and King of Kings of all of humanity” by God. On the selection committee: Jesus Christ, Mohammed, and Buddha (in addition to several others, including the godless Communists, Marx and Stalin, for some mysterious reason).

This is how Moon described it in his full-page newspaper ad, which ran in papers all across the U.S. (including the Los Angeles Times). It was a $720,000 print run, but it was worth every penny. Finally, middle America would get the word and rally behind their messiah, except they didn’t. And thank God they didn’t.

Moon’s Perverted Sermons

Here’s what Moon said in a 1990 sermon, addressing himself in third person as “father,”

“Jesus never achieved a thousandth of what Father has done. In his two years and eight months of public ministry, [Jesus] didn’t even establish the national foundation. Now, Father has established a foundation of worldwide power that is unprecedented in history.”

Moon claimed he would succeed where Jesus failed, but of course this didn’t go over well with the Bible believing public.

In an April, 2001, appearance at a Methodist church in Las Vegas, it was just another typical sermon by Reverend Moon. There were about 600 people in the congregation when the sermon began. But for some reason, people kept walking out, well before he got on a roll about schlongs:

“The head of the love organ is shaped exactly like a poisonous rattlesnake. And just like a rattlesnake, it’s always looking for a hole.”

He went on to explain that 70% of all divorces result from the wife’s inappropriate feelings of entitlement toward her husband’s genitals. As Moon explained it, a man’s “love organ” can only serve its master, and the spouse just needs to get used to it. He told the audience that these women, along with childless couples and homosexuals, are destroying the fabric of society. Of course people left in droves and this was not the first time.

“The Bible refers to the origin of free sex by using the image of a snake. Woman’s sexual organ is like the open mouth of a snake filled with poison. Man’s sexual organ is like the head of a snake. If you think of fallen love action in these terms you feel disgusted and so you should. It is poison to humanity.”

In November of 2001, he was in Buenos Aires to celebrate the launch of his newest Spanish-language newspaper. At the ceremony (attended by guest speaker and former President George H.W. Bush for a reported fee of $100,000), Moon passed along this revolutionary insight:

“You use the bathroom each morning. When you defecate, do you wear a gas mask? This is not a laughing matter but a serious one. If you are near someone else defecating, you will quickly move a good distance away. But when you smell your own feces, you do not even notice it. This is because that fecal matter is one with your body. Therefore, you do not feel that it is dirty.

“When you were young, did you ever taste the dried mucus from your nose? Does it taste sweet or salty? It’s salty, right? Since you can answer, you must have tasted it! Why did you not feel that it was dirty? It is because it was part of your body.

“Reverend Moon has figured out something that no one in the world knew.”

Why would anybody (who isn’t brainwashed or getting paid) sit through an entire speech by this nutcase? Since 1954, Moon has made no secret of his apostate and heretical theology:

  1. Eve bumped uglies with Satan and thereby consigned humanity to the Kingdom of Hell.
  2. Jesus ruined his chance to purify mankind when he neglected to get married and father children.
  3. Sun Myung Moon is succeeding where Jesus failed.
  4. Worshipping Moon is now mankind’s last chance for redemption.

Washington DC Convention

moonDC

In July/August of 1996, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon hosted a convention in Washington, D.C., which was also attended by several prominent evangelical leaders. The full text of Rev. Moon’s speech of August 1, 1996, titled “In Search of the Origin of the Universe,” which is replete with phallic references, is available on the Unification Home Page.

“Sun Myung Moon’s front organizations (Family Federation for World Peace, Women’s Federation for World Peace, Summit Council for World Peace, etc.) allegedly promote ‘morals and family values.’ It is amazing to see who will join this self-professed ‘Messiah’ in working for these ‘religiously correct’ goals. Moon hosted (7/31-8/2/96) this convention in Washington, D.C. The highly paid speakers (reportedly $80-150,000 each) included former presidents Ford and Bush, Robert Schuller, CNP member, Ralph Reed (who was an adherent to Moon and in his book, Politically Incorrect, gave glowing reports about Robert Grant and American Freedom Coalition), CNP member, Gary Bauer (president of Family Research Council, ‘the lobbying/research arm of Focus on the Family’) and CNP member, Beverly LaHaye of Concerned Women of America. Entertainment was by CNP member, Pat Boone and family.

Here is a list of many Moon/Unification Church front groups organized by state.

Moon’s Chosen Tactic 

nixon-moon

Moon’s chosen tactic, which has been highly effective, is to purchase his legitimacy outright. In addition to the Washington Times, Moon owns United Press International (UPI since 2000). Every operating year, the Times loses tens of millions of dollars, but profitability has never been a priority. Its intended purpose was made clear when, during Watergate, the paper ran an endless stream of pro-Nixon editorials urging the American people to forgive and forget.

Since then, Moon had made substantial inroads to the Republican party by parlaying access to his media outlets and exorbitant cash contributions. For instance, it was $100,000 of Moon’s money that initially kicked off the Nicaraguan Freedom Fund (NFF), a nonprofit organization conceived by CNP member, Oliver North and headed by a group of conservatives including NRA president, Charlton Heston. The NFF’s mission in life was to raise private donations for the Contras, in the eventuality that Congress cut off funding.

President George H.W. Bush and Moon

bushmoon

One well-placed former leader of Moon’s Unification Church told Robert Parry of Consortium News that the total monies earmarked for former President Bush was $10 million. George Bush Sr. has declined to say how much Moon’s organization actually paid him for speeches and other services in Asia, the United States and South America. At one Moon-sponsored speech in Argentina in 1996, Bush declared, “I want to salute Reverend Moon,” whom Bush praised as “the man with the vision.”  President Bush and his wife, Barbara even helped celebrate Mrs. Moon’s birthday.

Moon says that mankind fell from grace because Eve had sex with Satan, Christ failed in His mission and Moon is the true Messiah. While evangelical speakers were careful not to offend their high-paying host with the true gospel, Moon and his wife, Hak Ja Han, boldly proclaimed their gospel. What a denial of Christ for Pat Boone to entertain, and evangelical leaders to speak, on the same platform where the host declared that he is perfecting the work ‘left uncompleted by Jesus!'” [Dave Hunt, The Berean Call, Sept.,1996]

Bush made these speeches at a time when Moon was expressing intensely anti-American views. In his own speeches, Moon termed the United States “Satan’s harvest” and claimed that American women descended from a “line of prostitutes.”

George H.W. Bush’s loss of the White House did not end his relationship with Moon’s organization. Out of office, Bush agreed to give paid speeches to Moon-supported groups in the United States, Asia and South America. In some cases, Barbara Bush joined in the events. During this period, Moon grew increasingly hateful about the United States and many of its ideals.

In a speech to his followers on Aug. 4, 1996, Moon vowed to liquidate American individuality, declaring that his movement would “swallow entire America.” Moon said Americans who insisted on “their privacy and extreme individualism will be digested.”

Nevertheless, former President Bush continued to work for Moon’s organization. In November 1996, the former U.S. President spoke at a dinner in Buenos Aires, Argentina, launching Moon’s South American newspaper, Tiempos del Mundo. “I want to salute Reverend Moon,” Bush declared, according to a transcript of the speech published in The Unification News, an internal church newsletter.

“A lot of my friends in South America don’t know about The Washington Times, but it is an independent voice,” Bush said. “The editors of The Washington Times tell me that never once has the man with the vision interfered with the running of the paper, a paper that in my view brings sanity to Washington, D.C.”

Contrary to Bush’s claim, a number of senior editors and correspondents have resigned in protest of editorial interference from Moon’s operatives. Bush has refused to say how much he was paid for the speech in Buenos Aires or others in Asia and the United States. Link

Moon’s Mass Marriages/Blessings

massmarriages

Being the world’s savior, (in his mind of course) Moon preached that no one can enter Heaven without his explicit blessing. However, he is only willing to bless married couples, which is where those Guinness Book mass weddings come in. In a Moonie marriage, the choice of a partner is handled for you. Church elders make the seemingly-random selections by pairing up photos of prospective brides and grooms. Sometimes the lucky couples wind up with a common spoken language. Sometimes not.

They meet for the first time during the week leading up to the wedding day, often on the day of the ceremony itself. The event is so big that it has to be held in a sports arena or stadium, complete with a closed-circuit video feed on the Jumbotron.

Because of these antics and his blasphemous theology, you might expect that Moon would be shunned by respected Christian leaders. Which he is, sometimes. For instance, Jerry Falwell told Esquire magazine in 1978: “Reverend Sun Myung Moon is like the plague: he exploits boys and girls, and he should be exported. [sic] (Falwell later changed his mind when he was the recipient of a large monetary gift from Moon.)

This negative general attitude posed a significant problem for the Unification Church. Its goal is the absorption of every national government and competing religious faith. Which is a tall order, considering the horrible reputation the church has earned over the years. But Moon is nothing if not determined. Yet Moon infiltrated and neutralized the negative feelings simply by spreading around his wealth wherever it was needed in the phony rightwing.

In Part 17, we’ll look at Moon’s coronation in the Dirksen Senate office building in 2004, as well as those who benefited most from Moon’s largess and what it gained for him.

 

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.
