Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 22

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. —Matthew 7:15

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. —2 Timothy 4:2-4

What is a Neo-Con Trotskyite?

Let’s look again at the definition of a neo-con Trotskyite, since this term represents the people of the secretive Council for National Policy, as well as the Republican politicians of the last 50 years.

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.”

Let’s take a look at just a couple more of the top CNP members, and then we’ll close the next article with a list of members who can be found on the web.

William Rusher

William Rusher was on the CNP Board of Governors in 1982. He was a former Trotskyite. In 1955, William F. Buckley, Jr. founded the National Review with William Rusher as editor/publisher.

William Rusher and William F. Buckley

Rusher and F. Clifton White, having cut their political teeth in the Young Republican National Federation (“the powerful and shadowy YRNF ‘syndicate'”), became the political strategists of the ideologically distinct conservative movement that gained organizational control of the Republican Party in 1964. In 1961, Richard Viguerie (See part 18) answered an ad in National Review for a political organizer, and was hired by Rusher as YAF’s (Young Americans for Freedom – founded by Buckley) executive secretary.

In 1976, at an American Conservative Union Conference reception, Rusher was asked the following question by Charlotte Iserbyt, (former Senior Policy Advisor for Reagan’s education department), “Why won’t Human Events, National Review, and the American Conservative Union ever deal with the subject of no elected boards (unelected boards) and regional government?” His response was, “I guess they don’t think it’s so important.” Well, if it’s not so important, why do the communists love it?

In the Communist Daily World of November 8, 1975 it carried a very interesting article entitled, “Planning is Socialism’s Trademark,” by Morris Zeitlin. The Daily World was the newspaper of the Communist Party USA, and was formerly known as The Daily Worker which was founded in 1924. The importance of this article lies in its blatant admission that regionalism, which is gradually becoming the accepted method of unelected governance in the United States (unelected councils and task forces, participatory democracy, public-private partnerships, etc.) is the form of government used in democratic socialist and communist countries.

The entire article by Zeitlin is on page 134 in Charlotte’s book, The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, and is on her website in pdf download. Planning and a “planned economy” is socialism’s trademark. Think too, of United Nations Agenda 21! Apparently, the neo-cons believe Communism is not very important.

Richard Allen

Richard V.Allen, CNP and CFR member, who with Dr. Edwin J. Feulner,Jr., founded Heritage’s Asian Studies Center in 1983. Mr. Allen has served as its chairman. The 1993 Annual Report of the Heritage Foundation of Washington, D.C. was dedicated to their twentieth year celebration, and revealed the following:

The idea of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) originated with Heritage Fellow Richard Allen and has long been advocated by Heritage policy analysts…. The idea of creating a North American free trade zone from the Yukon to the Yucatan was first proposed by Heritage Distinguished Fellow Richard Allen in the late 1970s, refined by then Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan, and further developed in a major 1986 Heritage Foundation study.

The Free Trade Agreement got the ball rolling for the development of skills standards by the newly formed National Skills Standards Board, endorsed by the U.S. Labor Department Secretary’s Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) study originated under Labor Secretary Elizabeth Dole, and eventually led to the School-to-Work Opportunities Act and the dumbing down of American education curriculum for workforce training.

With all of this emphasis on “standards” it should be pointed out that NAFTA allows exchanges of all categories of professionals, with those coming from Mexico and Canada having met their own countries’ standards, not necessarily equal to those required in the United States. If this process evolves the way most of these exchange processes have in the past, that disparity will be addressed in one of two ways—by changing U.S. standards to match foreign standards, or by altering both NAFTA nations’ standards to align with international standards like ISO 9000 or ISO 1400 monitored by UNESCO. This should be of concern to professional organizations in the United States. See page 315 in The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America on charlotte’s website on the “Impact on Education of the United States Signing the North American Free Trade Agreement.”

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel of April 5, 2015 comes this article, Help wanted: Most U.S. Job Openings are for Low-Skill, Low-Pay Workers, and it all started with “free trade.” Thank you Heritage Foundation and Council for National Policy member, Richard Allen, along with all the neo-con radio hosts who pushed this garbage for the Republicans.

Lt. Col. Oliver North

North is a long time member of the CNP. He came into the public spotlight as a result of his participation in the Iran-Contra affair. Christians should find it disturbing that many CNP members, such as John K. Singlaub and Oliver North, were involved in one of the greatest modern day examples of deep politics: the Iran-Contra Scandal. John K. Singlaub and Oliver North, were part of the secret team of covert operators carrying out the Reagan and Bush Administration’s secret agenda.

North claimed partial responsibility for the sale of weapons through intermediaries to Iran, with the profits being channeled to the Contras in Nicaragua. He was convicted on three different counts for helping deceive Congress about the Reagan administration’s trading arms to Iran for release of hostages, for destroying documents, and for illegally accepting a home security system that was paid for by a government contractor, (Richard Secord), whom North had brought into his operations. North himself in a message sent to John Poindexter (a message that he attempted but failed to destroy), lays out the chain of organizations from Tehran right down to the hostage holders – a well-known Middle Eastern terrorist group called the Hezbollah. His conviction was later reversed on the grounds that immunized testimony had been used at his trial.

Richard Secord

Rex 84 was Oliver North’s 1984 “controversial” readiness exercise’ that called for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to round up and detain 400,000 imaginary ‘refugees,’ in the context of ‘uncontrolled population movements’ over the Mexican border in the US. North’s activities raised civil liberties concerns in both Congress and the Justice Department. Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was a classified “scenario and drill” developed by the US federal government to suspend the United States Constitution, declare martial law, place military commanders in charge of state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens who are deemed to be “national security threats”, in the event that the President declares a “State of National Emergency“. The plan states, events causing such a declaration would be widespread U.S. opposition to a U.S. military invasion abroad, such as if the United States were to directly invade Central America. To combat what the government perceived as “subversive activities”, the plan also authorized the military to direct ordered movements of civilian populations at state and regional levels.

Rex 84 was written by Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, who was both National Security Council White House Aide, and NSC liaison to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and John Brinkerhoff, the deputy director of “national preparedness” programs for the FEMA. They patterned the plan on a 1970 report written by FEMA chief Louis Giuffrida, at the Army War College, which proposed the detention of up to 21 million “American Negroes,” if there were a black militant uprising in the United States. Existence of a master military contingency plan (of which REX-84 was a part), “Garden Plot” and a similar earlier exercise, “Lantern Spike,” were originally revealed by journalist Ron Ridenhour, who summarized his findings in an article in Counter Spy.

North gave us both FEMA and Rex 84 which would suspend the Constitution and declare Martial Law during a state of National Emergency. He lives on a huge estate on top of Mt. Weather, the underground city that would hide the politicians in the event of nuclear catastrophe. It is a FEMA operation with armed guards.

Gary Bauer

Gary Bauer founded the Family Research Council, in 1983. In 1996, he was featured as a speaker at the Moon’s Women’s Federation For World Peace Conference in Washington DC, and had a full page ad in the Moon-owned Washington Times in August, 1997.

In 1997, a new headquarters for FRC, a six-story building which stands at 801 G Street N.W. in the heart of the nation’s capital, was built and decorated with funds through resources provided by FRC benefactors, the families of CNP members, Ed and Elsa Prince and 33º Mason Richard DeVos of Amway fame. Mr. Bauer ran for President in 2000, withdrew and backed pro-abortion candidate John McCain.

Bauer was under Secretary of Education beginning in July 1985, when he was confirmed by unanimous vote in the U.S. Senate. While serving at the Education Department, Bauer was named Chairman of President Reagan’s Special Working Group on the Family.

One has to wonder just how much Gary knew about the US/Soviet education agreements of 1985 and 1988 which brought Skinnerian behavioral training into American schools and eliminated academic education. B.F. Skinner used a system of “reward and punishment” for teaching. He stated, “I could make a pigeon a high achiever by reinforcing it on a proper schedule.” Thus, thanks to Reagan’s education agreements, we now have American children being trained like dogs, rather than being academically educated. See Anita Hoge’s article Manipulating Students by Reward and Punishment and Charlotte Iserbyt’s Back To Basics Reform, Or…OBE *Skinnerian International Curriculum? booklet available on her website.

In November 2009, Bauer signed an ecumenical statement known as the Manhattan Declaration calling on evangelical, Catholic and Orthodox Christians not to comply with rules and laws which they claim would compel participation in or blessing of abortion, same-sex marriage and other matters that go against their religious consciences. Sounds great doesn’t it? The Manhattan Declaration is Catholics and evangelicals together. It’s co-signers include CFR members, Robert George and Richard Land, both of whom, along with Dr. Albert Mohler, are United Nations non-governmental organization members (UN-NGO’s) who serve UNESCO. [Link]

Having said all that, Gary Bauer supports strong ties with Israel, our only middle east friend, and is a critic of Islam. He has written some excellent articles on Israel and the Obama administration. However, he also believes we should advance and protect freedom worldwide, but we are not the world’s police.

In Part 23, we’ll look at a few more top members of the CNP. I will link to the few membership lists available on the web, but they are incomplete. No one knows the total number of members today, and who they are, as they are kept secret.

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.


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.
