[Editor's Note: This two part treatise by Barbara Aho offers
a well referenced and damming indictment of the players on the American
side of the one world government scheme (especially the role played by the
pseudo Christian religious right) and the British oligarch elites
who are the ultimate string pullers, planners, and architects behind the
destruction of the United States and the entire globalist, genocidal agenda.
It's always difficult to properly explain the destructive, one world government
plan to new readers because the conspiracy is so huge and involves so many
players and organizations that one can quickly become overwhelmed with names
and acronyms. You might have to read through this treatise a couple of times
to fully absorb the amazing information revealed, but it's well worth your
effort as Barbara Aho has done an exemplary job of laying bare the bones
of the new world order monster.
Every negative development in the downward spiral of the American Republic
which we see in plain evidence today was hatched and set into motion by
British elites in the closing decades of the 19th century.
The creation of the state of Israel, for example, was planned at the turn
of the twentieth century and publicly assigned to then British Prime Minister
Arthur Balfour (the Balfour Agreement), but the plan was actually authored
by none other than British aristocrat Lord Milner. The treasonous cowards
running the current executive branch and their complicit minions in the
legislative branch who labor mightily today to destroy the once, bright
beacon of American liberty and democracy are merely agents and pawns of
the British oligarch families and their American counterparts
previously known as the Eastern Establishment (Rockefeller,
Morgan, Astor, Dupont, etc). There is also a strong German component (the
Nazi connection) of the one world government planners, but bear in mind
that British royal families with names like Windsor or Mountbatten are
German bloodlines and their descendants..Ken]

In 1971 Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. , aka
John Denver, wife Annie moved to the gilt-edged Starwood
section of Aspen, Colorado. While camping out at an 11,000 foot high lake
Denver and some friends witnessed a spectacular shower of meteorites transfixed
by the sidereal extravaganza for over two hours. After the "star"
show and the accompanying "new birth" which Denver claims he had,
Denver wrote the popular experience song "Rocky Mountain High."
Denver has told reporters that now he can pinpoint the place he came from
"near the ring nebula in Lyra." Denver is convinced he is among
those called Starseed by UFO believer, Brad Steiger. "He is here to
save the earthbound masses from the wrath to come." Denver has not
convinced everyone in his beloved state of Colorado that he is the "Messiah."
Some Coloradans have dubbed Denver as "Ecotwerp" or "Aspen's
In 1976 Denver, freshly graduated from Jack Rosenberg's,
aka Werner Erhard, EST new age conversion
brainwashing system, actually a form of subjection to demonic possession.
Denver, with the help of Rosenberg and a few other new age money bags, purchased
1,000 acres of prime mountain countryside near Snowmass, Colorado where
he planted a new age commune and indoctrination center he calls Windstar.
Denver's bodyguard and co-graduate EST victim, Thomas Crum,
has added a decidedly Eastern flavor to Windstar with the introduction of
the Eastern martial art known as Aikido which is more than just a martial
art; it is "the road to a union with the universal spirit." Crum
has reached the level of Guru Number II at Windstar, second in command only
to Denver. The huge Aikido tent structure under which Crum works his Eastern
spells is an imposing sight on the Windstar compound.
Denver, while sleeping/meditating under his nine foot portable
pyramid made of copper poles, was shown by "the power" that he
would some day become President of the United States. Mrs. Deutschendorf,
John's mother, has had the same dream. The fertile farm plains on the northwest
corner of the suburbs of Wichita, Kansas are the site of a sister structure,
an architectural carrier of the master spirit of the New Age, a large white,
stationary pyramid, situated just outside a circle of eight glistening white
"pyradome," geodesic domes. Buckminister Fuller, the inventor
of the geodesic dome is (was) coincidentally on the board of directors of
Windstar. The geodesic "pyradomes" are situated with seven domes
in a circle surrounding the eighth dome in the center of the circle forming
one of the basic New Age symbols, the 'hadit" and the "nuit,"
or the dot within the circle, a basic, timeless pagan/heathen religious
symbol Babylonians, Egyptians, Roman Catholics, Buddhists, of the ancient
Theosophists, arts, ancient wisdoms, and other occult traditions.
The shining white pyramid in the picture here is located on
ninety acres known as The Center for the Improvement of Human Functioning
International, Inc., 1. Or more simply as "The
Center," or more revealingly as "The Garvey Center" after
Willard Garvey, president chief director, executive officer
of National Center Garvey Industries, Inc.; founding director,
National Center for Privatization, International Executive
Service Corps, National Legal Center Interest for the Public Interest, ad
infinitum..., of Wichita.
When the Wichitans asked Garvey why the pyramid, the Garvey
Center published the following:
The Center Pyramid
"A number of people have asked us why we decided to include a Garvey
Center for the Improvement of Human Functioning, Inc. There were a number
of reasons behind this decision and we would like to share these with
you. "Structurally, of course, the pyramid is extremely strong and
should be able to withstand--as should the geodesic domes--almost any
environmental situation. "A principal consideration was of an electromagnetic
nature. We live in a sea of energy. All of life, from subatomic particles
to the galaxies, can be seen as electrostatic and electrodynamic fields.
Close examination of life forms, including our own, reveals that rather
than existing as solid state matter these forms are more accurately waves
of energy interacting with one another.
"It is known that the shape or form of a container
affects the nature and quality of the energy force fields within. This
is apparent with sound and light and equally so--though perhaps less apparent--with
other portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. "Experiments in recent
years have demonstrated that the pyramid shape is particularly conducive
to integrating and amplifying these energy fields. Significant results
have been established with liquids, solids, plant growth and productivity,
along with beneficial results with animal and human health. These results
are not entirely isolated phenomena as a number of scientific researchers
have demonstrated the response of animate and inanimate matter to various
electrical and magnetic force fields.
The uniqueness of the pyramid, however, apparently resides
in its ability to provide a richness of these fields. "Since ancient
times, the pyramid has stood as a universal symbol to the four cardinal
points of the earth, representing all things of the earth, and the four
material elements or substances from the combinations of which the quaternary
body of man is formed. From each side of the pyramid there rises a triangle,
typifying the threefold divine nature of Man. The pyramid reaches a point
apex depicting the Oneness of life. "The founding fathers of this
country incorporated a pyramid on the reverse side of the Great
Seal of the United States2. When it was adopted
by act of the Continental Congress on June 20, 1782, and readopted by
the new Congress on September 15, 1789. This seal continues to be printed
on our one dollar bills. "The thirteen tiers of the pyramid on the
seal represent thirteen original colonies. Man can construct this part
of the pyramid, whereas the capstone -- elevated on the seal -- can be
only provided by God. The eye in the capstone signifies God's wisdom and
attentiveness to the affairs of man. "A pyramid seems to be particularly
appropriate for The Center, dedicated to the health and well-being of
the body, mind and spirit of man."
Thus reads the Garvey Center explanation for the pyramidal
structure on its grounds. We have been told that the pyramid contains nothing
but an altar and a light which plays on the altar and further that the altar
has been used in rites and rituals best left undescribed. Some have hinted
that the Garvey Pyramid is the location of blood sacrifices but this, so
far, is mere unproven gossip.
In 1979, New Ager Jeremy Rifkin copyrighted
a book of giant significance to those who can read between the lines. The
book was titled The Emerging Order. In his run for the Presidential
Nomination of 1988, Christian New Age Change Agent, Pat Robertson
gave both Rifkin and his book, The Emerging Order, a great deal
of television exposure on Robertson's 700 Clubtelevision program. It has been said with great discernment
that the life purpose of Rifkin and the sole intent of The Emerging
Order was to channel the entire United States spectrum of the "Evangelical"
population into the New Age Movement. Rifkin, however, proved to be much
too blatantly associated with the vociferous element of the New Age Movement
which openly advocated the element of "cleansing the New Age Movement
action" of the earth, the physical extermination of
all fundamentalist Christians, Jews and Moslems and anyone else
who dissented from United States/United Nations/New World Order policies.
With Rifkin being too radical to be used to charm "evangelicals"
into the NAM, it would seem from the evidence presented herein that Willard
Garvey was given by the Masters of the New Age the job of charming, beguiling
the lesser Fundamentalists, the greater Evangelicals of so-called Christian
America into not only accepting but also promoting and vigorously and wholeheartedly
working for the establishment of a New Age/New World Order. . .
If there is one thing Fundamentalists and Evangelicals trust
it is money. They may not have any, but they trust and give their allegiance
to those who have it. They ignorantly call this "conservatism."
Conservatism is the Baal of Fundamentalists and Evangelicals. Not long ago
Thomas Crum from John Denver's New Age Windstar compound appeared in Wichita
for an evening before the Chamber of Commerce. Before the night was over
the entire Chamber of Commerce had been indoctrinated into Crum's occult
manipulation of Aiki. They were "centered" and "grounded"
and empowered to go out and work for the demons of the New Age. The channel
from Windstar to Wichita is established and it flows and finds harmonic
convergence at the Garvey Center -- a vortex for the New Age Spirits of
[The preceding introduction was reprinted with permission

The National Center
In 1983, Willard Garvey and other Wichita, Kansas businessmen founded
the National Center for Privatization [NCP]. Its 1986 Board of Directors
included Willard Garvey and Robert
D. Love, a founding member of National Council of The
John Birch Society who, according to a JBS publication cited by The
Belmont Brotherhood, was "a Thirty-second Degree KCCH Mason, a
member of the Median Shrine." 4.
The purpose of the National Center for Privatization was "to
educate Americans about the then-new concept of 'Privatization'", which
meant relieving the government of services which Garvey and his partners
felt could be performed more efficiently and effectively within the private
sector. Ostensibly, the objective was to eliminate government waste, reduce
taxes, and government control of the U.S. citizenry.
"Therefore, the foremost objective of the National
Center for privatization is to encourage by all practical and legal means,
the transfer of activities and responsibilities now being funded with
coerced tax dollars, to the private profit and voluntary sector of the
Although privatization masquerades as relief for the overburdened
taxpayer, a different picture emerges in real life scenarios where private
enterprise and government have collaborated to profit at taxpayer expense.
A practical illustration of how private enterprise often works involved
Willard Garvey's profiteering at the expense of the taxpayer. Waste
of the West: Public Lands Ranchingdiscloses that "ranchers,
government and private entities have been working together for decades to
convert our public land into profitable livestock ranches." 6.
In 1934, private interests pushed through Congress the
Taylor Grazing Act which created the Division of Grazing under
the Department of the Interior. This legislation resulted in the establishment
of federal, state and local "grazing advisory boards" staffed
by the same wealthy ranchers who lobbied Congress for their creation:
"All these 'advisory' boards were composed mostly of
the same large-scale, aggressive, politically savvy ranchers who helped
create the Forest Service and Taylor Grazing Act and awarded themselves
federal grazing permits (or else stockmen who followed in their place).
Most members were also livestock association officials, and many were
bankers, real estate dealers, lawyers, timber barons, merchants, and mining
tycoons. Congress enacted regulations, created grazing allotments, and
charged a nominal 5 cent grazing fee. Leases were issued to the privileged
few, generally the most wealthy and powerful cattlemen, especially those
who helped create the Taylor Grazing Act, often those who had illegally
fenced off public land. . .
"In 1939, under close supervision of the grazing industry,
the Division of Grazing was reorganized into the Grazing Service. . .They
went out and radically turned it over to the big cowmen and the big sheepmen
of the West. Why they even put them on the payroll. . . It is common knowledge
that they have been practically running the Grazing Service. . . Seven
years later, in 1946, again under the influence of powerful stockmen,
the Grazing Service and General Land Office were combined to form the
Bureau of Land Management (BLM). . ." 7.
Chapter 7 titled Welfare
Ranching describes Willard Garvey's illegal use of tax-funded public
lands -- with a little help from fellow rancher, Ronald Reagan,
who also happened to be President of the United States:
"In 1984 appraisers for both the BLM and Forest Service
uncovered more than 2000 secret subleasing deals providing the original
holder of the grazing permit 'the opportunity to profit at the expense
of the Treasury' (Com. on Govt. Oper. 1986). A recent study by Colorado
State University researchers found more than 900 cattle permittees were
subleasing 'their' BLM allotments. Considering there are only about 19,000
BLM permittees altogether, 900 (almost 5% of the total) seems to indicate
a serious problem. And one further wonders how many subleasers were not
"These 900 were subleasing at an average rate of $7.76/AUM
-- more than 5 times the then-current $1.35/AUM grazing fee charged by
the federal government. Most of the difference went into ranchers' pockets.
For example, according to the 5-11-87 Reno Gazette-Journal, multimillionaire
Willard Garvey collected $120,000 rent in 1986 from a
Humboldt County, Nevada rancher, while the government received only
$14,587 in grazing fees for that public land.
"In 1985. . .in a slick move that infuriated many reform
advocates, rancher Ronald Reagan rode to the rescue and (while vacationing
at his California ranch) promulgated an executive order
directing the Secretaries of Agriculture and Interior (at their advisal)
to permanently adopt the PRIA fee formula. [Public Rangelands
Improvement Act created by the public lands ranching establishment
to assure low grazing fees] Both Secretaries promptly did so, with a new
provision that established a floor of $1.35/AUM. Consequently, the federal
grazing fee remained $1.35/AUM through 1987." 8.
In 1984, between the establishment of the National Center
for Privatization and President Reagan's executive order to permanently
establish low fees for public land grazing, Willard Garvey wrote a letter
to the President which disclosed the real objective of the National Center
for Privatization -- to wit, that non-profit organizations and the private
sector might render the cumbersome machinery of representative government
obsolete! Garvey's letter [see below] was published in a media promotion
for an International Conference On Family Choice/Educational Vouchers that
was sponsored by the NCP on Sept. 30-Oct. 2 of 1985. Speakers for the "Privatizing
Education" conference were members of the secretive and elitist Council
for National Policy -- namely James Dobson, Tim
LaHaye and Phyllis Schlafly, and also free market
economist, Milton Friedman and Secretary of Education,
William Bennett. The NCP brochure promoted the conference
as being "Where the Future Begins."

Washington , D.C. 20500 Re: Privatization President Reagan, congratulations
on rejecting the political system negatives. Now why not adopt the all
positive system -- privatization? Hold a White House conference on Privatization
and appoint a Presidential Task Force on privatization. Privatization
is documented in the enclosed paper from the Heritage Foundation and dates
back at least to Adam Smith, Plato, Aristotle and Jesus. Privatization's
more recent advocates include most of the non-profit sector-- and the
entire profit sector. To name a few, Peter Drucker, Milton Friedman, Heritage
Foundation, Reason Foundation, Pacific Institute, Manhattan Institute,
National Legal Center for the Public Interest, VOLUNTEER -- National Center
for Citizen Involvement, International Executive Service Corps, United
Way with its Services Identification System, churches, labor unions, etc.
Privatization is now "an idea whose time has come" The knowledge,
communication, and computer industry can make political representatives
obsolete! Privatization might well be the theme for the 200th anniversary
of the Constitution. Privatization is essential for national salvation.
To restore privatization is the National Center for Privatization's purpose.
May we help you? With best wishes,
Willard W. Garvey

Officially, the National Center for Privatization relocated
to McLean, VA in 1991 and was incorporated in the District of Columbia.
It has since become the Council
for Government Reform of Arlington, VA. A companion organization, "Center
for Government Reform" functions as a non-profit. 9. The NCP
brochure which accompanied Garvey's letter to President Reagan states that
the National Office of the NCP was in Wichita, Kansas. However, the promotional
material indicates that, as of April 1984, the NCP Executive Secretary actually
resided in Falls Church, VA -- which is just outside the nation's capital.

of government services. Willard Garvey's selection of speakers for the "privatization

The Mont Pelerin
Milton Friedman is a Nobel Laureate in Economic
Science  and has for many years been a member of the Mont
Pelerin Society, founded in 1947 in Mont Pelerin, Switzerland by Frederich
von Hayek. 12. The stated objective of the Mont Pelerin Society
is to strengthen the principles and practices of the free society by encouraging
market-oriented economic systems with minimal and dispersed government as
opposed to government regulation of industry. Milton Friedman was president
of the Mont Pelerin Society from 1970-1972. Edwin Feulner,
president of the Heritage Foundation, was president of
the Mont Pelerin Society from 1996-1998 and is currently the Senior Vice

Von Hayek is considered by libertarians to be the greatest social scientist
of the twentieth century, an economist whose theories on free-market economics
have supplanted John Maynard Keynes. Free market advocates claim that Keynes'
theories of government regulation of the economy have been gradually discredited
and Hayek's model of "Spontaneous Order" accepted which contends
that "social order, and thus social capital, can emerge in spontaneous
and decentralized fashion." Milton Friedman, who was profoundly influenced
by Von Hayek, is the leader of what is called "The Chicago Boys"
School of Economics. Promulgating Hayak's monetarist theories from the seat
of Rockefeller power, the University of Chicago, Friedman had Chile declared
a dictatorship in the mid-1970s in order to privatize the economy.
"Starting from a tiny embryo at the University of Chicago
with the philosopher-economist Friedrich von Hayek and his students like
Milton Friedman at its nucleus, the neoliberals and their funders have
created a huge international network of foundations, institutes, research
centers, publications, scholars, writers and public relations hacks to
develop, package and push their ideas and doctrine relentlessly. . .They
have spent hundreds of millions of dollars, but the result has been worth
every penny to them because they have made neoliberalism seem as if it
were the natural and normal condition of humankind. . ." 14.
According to the Mont Pelerin Society, "liberal"
in the European sense means "broadly epitomized by a preference for
minimal and dispersed government, rather than in its current American sense
which indicates the opposite preference for an extension and concentration
of governmental powers." In theory, diminishing the expansive power
of government is appealing. However, the wisdom of deregulating the transnational
corporations, thereby permitting them to amass sufficient economic power
to cripple whole nations, has been discredited since the Asian crisis:
"The devastating social and economic impact of the
global financial crisis triggered in East Asia in mid-1997 has led a growing
number of civil society actors, UN bodies and governments to explore strategies
to regain control over global finance, which many describe as a cause
of increasing systemic instability and social regress. . .Many debates
in this area have focused on critiquing the neoliberal rationale for unfettered
financial liberalization as part of the conventional policy package ascribed
to the so-called 'Washington consensus,' which has been thrown into question
in the aftermath of the East Asian crisis". 15.
The stated purpose of the classical liberal academic, business
and governmental leaders who comprise the Mont Pelerin Society is to prevent
world domination by communist, fascist and socialist regimes. However, the
fruit of this elite society of has been generally of the same variety. Roger
Pearson, a British race scientist, united the ex-Nazis and Nazi sympathizers
of the Europe in the World Anti-Communist League. In 1975, Pearson organized
the North American neo-fascists into an American branch of the WACL called
Council on American Affairs. The Council sponsored seminars and published
monographs with such influential persons as Ed Feulner of Heritage, Ray
Cline, former C.I.A. deputy director, and others who would later become
high officials of the Reagan Administration. With the support of New Right
leadership, Pearson became well integrated within the conservative network.
His influence in the U.S. was demonstrable by his oversight of an organization
that included Dr. Milton Friedman, whose free market theories were applied
in Chile under the fascist dictator, Pinochet.
"Pearson was elected to head University Professors
for Academic Order (UPAO), a group that includes many members of the Heritage
Foundation, the Reagan Administration and the Mont Pelerin Society. [f-228]
The latter is a group of about 500 ultraconservatives whose best known
economists, Milton Friedman and Friedrich von Hayek, were architects of
the economy of Pinochet's Chile. Both advocated a form of dictatorship
as part of the economic plan. Heritage Foundation president Edwin Feulner
is treasurer of the Society." 16.
Privatizing Latin America
It is common knowledge that the massive destabilization of the democratically-elected
Chilean government and assassination of President Salvadore Allende was
carried out by the CIA, hired by a corporate mafia which planned to install
a nationalist government more lenient toward private enterprise. President
Nixon and National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger allocated $8 million
for the campaign to destabilize Allende. Kissinger told the CIA that Washington's
"firm and continuing policy" was for Allende to be overthrown
by the US-trained Chilean military. In 1975, CIA director Richard Helms
admitted his agency's involvement. When the coup finally came in September
1973, U.S. warships appeared off the coast of Chile and American intelligence
officers kept in touch with Pinochet and other military leaders. In subsequent
years, an estimated 50,000 Chileans died at the hands of Pinochet's dictatorship,
which was protected throughout by Washington.
In 1999, a journalist who had written exposes of Richard Scaife
was by all appearances murdered in the Oxford Centre of Pittsburgh, PA --
the office complex of the foundation of his subject -- Scaife. Richard Mellon
Scaife is the heir of the Mellon fortune and a major funder of the Heritage
Foundation and other right wing organizations, although, like the Coors
family, Scaife also funds abortion and gay rights organizations. Shortly
before his death in February 1999, Kangas catalogued the gruesome accomplishments
of the CIA and issued a scathing indictment of their paymasters -- the very
elites who created the CNP! The following portion of Kangas' Origins
of the Overclass deals with CIA "success stories" around the
"The wealthy have always used many methods to accumulate
wealth, but it was not until the mid-1970s that these methods coalesced
into a superbly organized, cohesive and efficient machine. After 1975,
it became greater than the sum of its parts, a smooth flowing organization
of advocacy groups, lobbyists, think tanks, conservative foundations,
and PR firms that hurtled the richest 1 percent into the stratosphere.
"The origins of this machine, interestingly enough,
can be traced back to the CIA. This is not to say the machine is a formal
CIA operation, complete with code name and signed documents. (Although
such evidence may yet surface -- and previously unthinkable domestic operations
such as MK-ULTRA, CHAOS and MOCKINGBIRD show this to be a distinct possibility.)
But what we do know already indicts the CIA strongly enough. Its principle
creators were Irving Kristol, Paul Weyrich, William Simon, Richard Mellon
Scaife, Frank Shakespeare, William F. Buckley, Jr., the Rockefeller family,
and more. Almost all the machine's creators had CIA backgrounds. . .
The Business Origins of CIA Crimes
"Although many people think that the CIA's primary mission during
the Cold War was to 'deter communism,' Noam Chomksy correctly points out
that its real mission was 'deterring democracy.' From corrupting elections
to overthrowing democratic governments, from assassinating elected leaders
to installing murderous dictators, the CIA has virtually always replaced
democracy with dictatorship. It didn't help that the CIA was run by businessmen,
whose hostility towards democracy is legendary. The reason they overthrew
so many democracies is because the people usually voted for policies that
multi-national corporations didn't like: land reform, strong labor unions,
nationalization of their industries, and greater regulation protecting workers,
consumers and the environment.
"So the CIA's greatest 'successes' were usually more
pro-corporate than anti-communist. Citing a communist threat, the CIA helped
overthrow the democratically elected Mohammed Mussadegh government in Iran
in 1953. But there was no communist threat -- the Soviets stood back and
watched the coup from afar. What really happened was that Mussadegh threatened
to nationalize British and American oil companies in Iran. Consequently,
the CIA and MI6 toppled Mussadegh and replaced him with a puppet government,
headed by the Shah of Iran and his murderous secret police, SAVAK. The reason
why the Ayatollah Khomeini and his revolutionaries took 52 Americans hostage
in Tehran in 1979 was because the CIA had helped SAVAK torture and murder
"Another 'success' was the CIA's overthrow of the democratically
elected government of Jacabo Arbenz in Guatemala in 1954. Again, there was
no communist threat. The real threat was to Guatemala's United Fruit Company,
a Rockefeller-owned firm whose stockholders included CIA Director Allen
Dulles. Arbenz threatened to nationalize the company, albeit with generous
compensation. In response, the CIA initiated a coup that overthrew Arbenz
and installed the murderous dictator Castillo Armas. For four decades, CIA-backed
dictators would torture and murder hundreds of thousands of leftists, union
members and others who would fight for a more equitable distribution of
the country's resources.
"Another 'success' story was Chile. In 1973, the country's
democratically elected leader, Salvadore Allende, nationalized foreign-owned
interests, like Chile's lucrative copper mines and telephone system. International
Telephone & Telegraph (ITT) offered the CIA $1 million to overthrow
Allende -- which the CIA allegedly refused -- but paid $350,000 to his political
opponents. The CIA responded with a coup that murdered Allende and replaced
him with a brutal tyrant, General Augusto Pinochet. Pinochet tortured and
murdered thousands of leftists, union members and political opponents as
economists trained at the University of Chicago under Milton Friedman installed
a 'free market' economy. Since then, income inequality has soared higher
in Chile than anywhere else in Latin America." 17.
Another case of New Right leaders using their influence to support Latin
American dictators was the promotion by Pat Robertson [CNP Pres. 1985-6]
and Jerry Falwell of General Efrain Rios Montt, who became president of
Guatemala after a bloody coup in 1982. Rios Montt, a convert of Gospel Outreach
Verbo Ministries [which originated in the Jesus Movement, a CIA operation]
expected to turn the Verbo Churches into a new political movement which
would "moralize national life from the top down."
"Gospel Outreach is an evangelical Pentecostal church
with headquarters in Eureka, California and Guatemala. It grew out of
the 'Jesus People' movement of the 1960s in the United States. . .After
the 1976 earthquake, 28 Gospel Outreach evangelicals from California arrived
in Guatemala to help rebuild the country and establish El Verbo church.
. .An early convert was General Efrain Rios Montt, who became president
after a military coup in March 1982.
"According to the Latin American Institute of Transnational
Studies, 'Within the first nine months of Rios Montt's administration,
12 evangelical pastors were assassinated; 69 were kidnapped; 45 disappeared;
5 were jailed; 11 foreign missionaries were expelled; 88 evangelical temples
were destroyed; and 50 more were occupied by the Army." By 1986,
Verbo Ministries reported 250 congregations. Verbo Ministries also runs
a Leadership Training School with over 1000 members directed by Rios Montt
"Rios Montt has been supported by Pat Robertson (Christian
Broadcasting Network), Jerry Falwell (Moral Majority, Thomas Road Baptist
Church, Liberty Federation), and Loren Cunningham (Youth with a Mission).
. .Jimmy Swaggart Ministries has provided financial support for the schools
of El Verbo in Guatemala. This is done under the "Programa Ayuda
Infantile," a branch of the Swaggart ministry." 18.
The Covert Action Information
Bulletin implicates another elitist organization in the bloody coup
of the Allende government: the Brazil-based Tradition, Family and Property
founded by one Plinio Corrêa de Oliviera. "In Chile and other
Latin American countries, the CIA helped finance the right-wing Tradition,
Family and Property which played a role in the overthrow of both Allende
in Chile and Goulart in Brazil. In many instances it pitted one sector of
the Church against another." 19.
Tradition, Family and Property has close ties with Heritage
founder, Paul Weyrich and Morton Blackwell
of the Leadership Institute, who are members of the CNP. 20.
Weyrich and Blackwell endorsed a 1993 book by Plinio Corrêa de Oliviera,
on the necessity of restoring traditional nobility and elites to rule the
world. Writing the Forward of Nobility & Analogous Traditional Elites,
Morton Blackwell opined: "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." 21.
Paul Weyrich's endorsement appears on the dust jacket: "Sadly,
most American elites are now devoted to self-interest, not to service, which
is one reason why affairs here go so badly. Your book may help reawaken
people to the realization that we need and can have an elite devoted to
In 1997, Tradition, Family and Property sponsored the Conservative
Leadership Conference together with CNP affiliates/Moon fronts Christian
Voice [Gary Jarmin]
and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms [Alan
Gottleib] and also Citizens Against Government Waste, which was founded
by American Knights of Malta President, J.
If Latin America is any indicator of the corporate largesse
toward the working classes, U.S. citizens will be in worse bondage than
before privatization. Chile's revolution subjected the masses to a shock-induced
depression in 1975 that was not remedied until 1986 by an IMF bailout which
cost the taxpayers 3% of Chile's GNP for three years. Milton Friedman called
this "an economic miracle".
"This follows the usual pattern of 'free market capitalism
-- market discipline for the working class, state aid for the elite. During
the 'miracle,' the economic gains had been privatised; during the crash
the burden for repayment was socialised... It is the increased wealth
of the elite that we see the true 'miracle' of Chile. According to one
expert in the Latin American neo-liberal revolutions, the elite 'had become
massively wealthy under Pinochet'and when the leader of the Christian
Democratic Party returned from exile in 1989 he said that economic growth
that benefited the top 10 per cent of the population had been achieved
(Pinochet's official institutions agreed)." 23.
President of Gun Owners of America, Larry Pratt [CNP] also
was Secretary of the Council for Inter-American Security [CIS], which was
founded in 1976. Pratt "served both as an intelligence conduit from
'private' sources such as the American Security Council and CAUSA, and as
an informal employment agency which provided analysts to the Reagan administration
at the inception of Washington's murderous counter-insurgency wars in Central
America." In 1980, CIS published the influential A New Inter-American
Policy for the Eighties, also known as the "Santa Fe Document."
The Santa Fe Document, which was a sequel to The Rockefeller
Report, was originally titled "Inter-American Relations, Shield of
the New Order and Sword of the U.S. Ascent to World Power." This document
set forth plans to create religious sects on a worldwide scale, whose mission
was to corrupt the collective conscience of Christians to willingly accept
the Rockefeller agenda. A portion of a book, La Mafia Sects (The Sect Mafia)
by Burn Fouchereau, describes the planned use of Evangelical organizations,
such as Rios Montt's Church of the Word, as fronts for the CIA to "take
charge of the initiative of ideological struggle" in Latin America
through religious phenomena, i.e., psychological warfare operations for
inculcating Anglo-Saxon ideology:
La Mafia Sects (The Sect Mafia) by Burn Fouchereau
The Sects, Powerful Tool of the Secret Services
"In the category, 'Manipulation of mystical groups
and sects', the highest award can be given to the famous American intelligence
agency. . . In May 1980, a group of bigwigs in the Republican party signed
a confidential document, one destined to guide U.S. foreign policy, and
more specifically, that of the CIA and of NSA. (2) This document was titled,
'Inter-American Relations, Shield of the New Order and Sword of the U.S.
Ascent to World Power." Althoughthis document set forth strategic
proposals, whose objectives are made readily clear in the title, it nevertheless
remained secret, and in the intelligence community was nicknamed, the
'Santa Fé Report.' Beginning with the Reagan administration, and
then Bush's, and on to the cohabitation of the Republicans with Bill Clinton,
this project became operational and its application is ongoing. It is
really just the continuation of a political strategy hatched by the U.S.A.
in the 1950s, in turn guided by a document titled 'The Rockefeller Report.'
The latter states: 'In order to win the battle for hegemony (control)
over conscience, it is necessary to begin by exposing Latin America to
the influence of the fundamental values of the American way of life, doing
so through controlling the traditional apparatus of socialization of civil
society: the Family, the School, and the Church.'
"The Santa Fe Report went further down this road, clearly
defining that one of the vectors for the expansion of U.S. power worldwide
would be the activities of the sects. The document concretely explained
how necessary it was for the U.S.A. to take charge of the initiative of
ideological struggle through religious phenomena, the goal of which was
to win control over conscience. The recent development of the sects would
be one of the elements of this strategy. On the same subject, the Santa
Fe Report notes the work already done in this area: '. [The experience
acquired in Vietnam, thanks to the work done in population control, was
exported to Latin America, and particularly to Guatemala, by numerous
agents of A.I.D., and of other U.S. services. Certain sects were created
by psychological warfare specialists and entrusted with control of the
political forum and control of conscience.' ---George Orwell could never
have imagined anything more effective than this!
"In France, the reigning and undisputed specialist
on this subject is Professor Jésus Garcia-Ruiz,
of the Dept. of Ethnology and Anthropology at the University of Paris.In
order to confirm this incredible American policy of manipulation of the
masses of the world, of which the Latin Americans seem to be the model,
he cites two other sources. First, the Popular Evangelical Mission
of France, which, in a text titled, La Notion relative aux
sects en Amerique Latine, wrote: 'They [the sects] are all made in
the U.S.A. and are financed from the outside; they are the vehicles for
inculcating an Anglo-Saxon cultural ideology, leading to adopting an American
middle class model.' The second source is a report by the Minister of
the Interior of Mexico, which explains: 'The sects carry out the most
subtle part of the process of domination and of north-Americanization
of underdeveloped societies, through their religious preaching, which
is set down into the ideological struggle in the middle of civil society.'
It is a fact that the foremost evangelical and charismatic sects have
played a structural role in the dictatorships of Latin America. Sects
such as The Church of the Word in Guatemala, or the Divine
Universal Church, in Argentina, are directly linked to North
American structures, such as the 700 Club (the
real 'seminary' for the formation of gurus, directed by the CIA),
P.T.L. Television, founded by Pat Robertson
in Virginia, Billy
Graham Evangelist Association, World Vision International
(all part of the sects' money stream)." 25.
The Moral Majority
According to the modern prophets of privatization, Bible doctrine is expendable,
but no one may question the doctrine of unbridled capitalism. Any who go
there are labeled "socialists" in the worst sense of the term.
Forgetting that Christ drove the moneychangers from His temple, one prophet,
Willard Garvey, shamelessly named the Lord Jesus among
the founders of Republican government and proponents of privatization!
"Privatization is documented in the enclosed paper
from the Heritage Foundation and dates back at least to Adam Smith, Plato,
Aristotle and Jesus. . .Privatization might well be the theme for the
200th anniversary of the Constitution. Privatization is essential for
To attain national salvation, the prophets of privatization
determined to build a voting bloc to support their agenda. In 1976, direct-mail
fundraising genius of the New Right, Richard Viguerie, was accompanied to
the 1976 convention of the American Independent Party by three leaders of
the New Right with equally doubtful connections:
Rusher, editor of CFR member William F. Buckley's
Weyrich, founder of the Heritage and Free Congress Foundation, who
employed Fabianist/British race scientist Roger Pearson
of the World Anti-Communist League, the multinational network of Nazi
war criminals, Latin American death squad leaders and North American neo-fascists.
Weyrich presently employs top U.S. Fabianist Sir Peter Vickers
Hall and ex-Nazi collaborator Laszlo Pasztor.
who founded The Conservative Caucus (TCC) at the direction
of 33º Mason, Jesse Helms on whose staff he worked.
TCC has an interlocking directorate (Phillips served on advisory board)
with the United States Council for World Freedom (USCWF)
of the WACL.. Phillips also proposed the name for Buckley's Young
Americans for Freedom and served on its board of directors.
At the AIP convention, Viguerie presented himself as a candidate
for the Presidential nomination of the party of George Wallace, a coalition
that included elements of the Ku Klux Klan, John Birchers and operatives
of Willis Carto's Liberty Lobby. When Viguerie's bid for the nomination
failed, the New Right leaders turned their energies to creating a hard right
voting bloc within the Republican Party.
"By 1978, Weyrich's PAC helped sweep into Congress
a new, radical breed of populist conservatives. The most notable, it turned
out, was a brash, young man from Georgia named Newt Gingrich
[33º Mason, CFR] whom Weyrich had trained years earlier at a campaign
seminar in Milwaukee. Finally, on the verge of realizing his right-wing
utopia Weyrich harvested what his friend Morton Blackwell termed 'the
greatest track of virgin timber on the political landscape': evangelicals."
In 1979, Robert Billings of the National
Christian Action Coalition and Free Congress Foundation invited
the Rev. Jerry Falwell to a meeting with Phillips, Viguerie,
Weyrich and Ed McAteer, a retired advertising executive.
Their agenda now was to influence the GOP party platform for the 1980 election.
Weyrich proposed that if the Republican Party would take a strong stand
against abortion, the large Catholic voting bloc within the Democratic Party
would be split. At this meeting, the term "Moral Majority" was
coined to represent the ecumenical bloc of voters that would be led by the
Rev. Falwell, who pledged to "turn this (country) into a Christian
nation." The Coors family, which funds abortion and
gay rights causes (having made their fortune from the manufacture and sale
of beer), generously funded the Moral Majority and built the headquarters
building for Paul Weyrich's organizations, the Heritage Foundation and Free
Congress Foundation. During the Reagan Administration, the Heritage Foundation
served as almost a shadow government with Joe Coors' Kitchen
Cabinet setting up offices within the Executive Office Building. During
its first year, the Reagan administration adopted fully two-thirds of the
recommendations of Heritage's Mandate for Leadership: Policy Management
in a Conservative Administration.
Working with the main architects and commanding generals of
the New Right was also John T. (Terry) Dolan co-founder
and national chairman of the 300,000-member National Conservative
Political Action Committee (NCPAC), the largest conservative political
action committee in terms of spending and influence including Jesse Helms'
Congressional Club which was a client of NCPAC.
Weyrich, Viguerie and Dolan are Catholic; Phillips is Jewish
but claims to have converted to Christianity. Terry Dolan was a homosexual
who died of AIDS in 1986. In his expose of the New Right, God's Bullies,
Perry Deane Young set the record straight on the religious makeup of the
New Right leadership:
"We are told that out of [the Fundamentalist tradition]...a
new and powerful force known variously as 'the new Christian right' or
'the religious right' or 'the moral majority' has emerged. We are led
to believe that these groups, or this movement, sprang naturally from
the fundamentalist soil. But such is not the case. "
A fundamentalist is generally defined as one who believes
in adult baptism (that one should have a choice in the matter and be old
enough to know what he is doing), in a literal interpretation of the bible,
and in being 'reborn' or 'born again' through a personal experience in accepting
Jesus Christ as one's personal Savior. This definition does not begin to
cover all those in the religious right. There are Orthodox Jewish rabbis
on nearly every one of these groups' boards of advisors. In most cases,
the groups themselves were set up by Catholics. The idea for a Moral Majority,
Inc., and the name itself came from two political operatives in Washington
-- one a Jew, the other a Catholic.
"The most effective leaders of the new right are
nearly all Catholics. The following are only a few of them: Phyllis Schlafly
of Eagle Forum, Terry Dolan of National Conservative Political Action
Committee, Robert Boege of the National Conservative Foundation, Robert
Bauman, former national chairman of both Young Americans for Freedom and
American Conservative Union, and Richard A. Viguerie, whose direct-mail
expertise made winners of them all." 27.
Terry Dolan was also a former member of the advisory board
of CAUSA USA, whose president is Bo Hi Pak, top aide of Sun Myung Moon.
In 1984, Dolan's organization, NCPAC, received $775,000 from Rev. Moon.
Terry Dolan stated that the secret of fundraising is to try to "make
them angry and stir up hostilities. The shriller you are, the easier it
is to raise funds. That's the nature of the beast." 28.
Appeals to fear and loathing amongst Christians in order to
raise funds for right-wing causes was the brainchild of Richard Viguerie,
whose enterprise was rescued from near bankruptcy in 1986 with an account
for distribution of the Unification Church-owned Insight magazine. In 1987,
Bo Hi Pak, a former Korean military-intelligence officer and Moon's top
U.S. operative, paid $10.06 million for Viguerie's office building. Also,
in 1987, Viguerie became Secretary, strategist and fund-raising genius of
the newly created Moon-controlled and funded American Freedom Coalition
(AFC), an alliance of political conservatives and conservative religious
groups and individuals. In this position, Viguerie mailed millions of letters
appealing for funds to lobby aid to the Contras and promote Oliver North's
testimony before Congress. 29.
The Religious Roundtable
Present at the meeting in which New Right leaders founded
the Moral Majority, Ed McAteer had been a sales marketing manager for Colgate-Palmolive
Company. However, McAteer had retired to become director of the Christian
Freedom Foundation (CFF), an organization devoted to training evangelicals
for places of leadership in government. From there McAteer served as national
field director of Howard Phillips' Conservative Caucus. Bill Bright,
the founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, was closely allied
with the CFF, which was heavily funded by Amway billionaire, Richard
DeVos, who in 1975 took over the CFF. The GroupWatch file
on Campus Crusade for Christ speculates that Bill Bright, formerly
a fancy foods salesman who decided the gospel could be marketed in the same
manner as any other product, may have an agenda other than evangelism:
". . .Bright's early connections with Third Century
Publishers and the Christian Freedom Foundation . . .have led many to
believe that Bright's and CCFC's goals are to bring the policies of the
evangelical far right and laissez faire capitalism around the globe, including,
or perhaps especially, the U.S. government. Bright himself does not come
from a ministerial background, but was a businessman in food specialty
and candy sales." 30.
In 1979, retired sales executive Ed McAteer founded the Religious
Roundtable of 56 members who symbolized the 56 signers of the Declaration
of Independence. The Religious Roundtable is a coalition of conservative
business, military, political, and religious leaders working together to
politicize those who believe in traditional values and to influence government.
Weyrich, Blackwell, and Falwell were among the 56 Roundtable members and
Robert Billings' son, William, was the first editor of the Roundtable Report.
McAteer's Religious Roundtable brought together the top leadership
of the Religious Right and worked as an informational clearinghouse for
large organizations such as the Christian Broadcasting Network, Billy Graham
Evangelistic Association, Moral Majority, Christian Voice, Church League
of America, National Religious Broadcasters, Campus Crusade for Christ,
Plymouth Rock Foundation, the National Association of Evangelicals, Gideon
Bible, Wycliffe Bible Associates, and Intercessors for America.
Wycliffe Bible Translators
Ed McAteer was also a member of the board of Wycliffe Bible
Associates, a lay ministry which was created to support the work of Wycliffe
Bible Translators, an evangelical organization that raises funds and recruits
missionaries to do the work of the Summer Institute of Linguistics. Bill
Bright serves on the board of the International Linguistics Center in Dallas,
which is an associate group of SIL. The Summer Institute of Linguistics
was established in 1936 by William Cameron Townsend as a scientific, nonsectarian
organization specializing in language studies, literacy work and "other
An expose of SIL's corruption by Rockefeller money mentions
Cam Townsend's role in founding the Religious Roundtable with Ed McAteer.
"In 1979, after Nelson Rockefeller had passed from
living humanity into history, Cam had gathered with other members of Christian
Fundamentalism to form the Religious Roundtable. . . Cam was one of those
who followed McAteer into the founding meeting of the Religious Roundtable.
If he had any reservations about where this would lead SIL and how it
would play in Latin America . . ., Cam's base of support in the homeland
and his top financial backers left him little choice. He was, at the end
of his career, trapped by the Far Right Fundamentalist base on which he
had built Wycliffe's success at home." 33.
In this massive volume, Thy Will Be Done: The Conquest
of the Amazon: Nelson Rockefeller and Evangelism in the Age of
Oil, authors Gerard Colby and Charlotte Dennett present the disturbing
evidence of Rockefeller's use of American missionaries, and in particular,
the Summer Institute of Linguistics, who cooperated in
conducting surveys, transporting CIA agents and indirectly assisting in
the genocide of tribes in the Amazon basin.
"At the heart of this story are two intensely ambitious
and ultimately tragic figures: Nelson Rockefeller, scion of the liberal
Standard Oil family, and William Cameron Townsend, founder of the ultraconservative
Wycliffe Bible Translators. Although leaders of opposing camps, both found
common cause against fascism and the communism, with ironic, fateful results.
We see Rockefeller gathering political power and building
a vast business empire in Latin America, working with the CIA, developing
close friendships with famous Latin American politicians and businessmen,
and increasingly advocating military dictatorships, while Townsend's missionaries
are used to pacify native populations in frontiers rich in oil and rare
minerals or subject to guerrilla insurgencies. Seeking to hasten the prophesied
Second Coming, Townsend pursues a fanatical effort to reach every Bibleless
tribe with the Word, even to the point of saving their souls by destroying
their culture and allying with the dictators who oppress them.
"Rockefeller and Townsend contributed more than any
other Americans to the conquest of the Amazon that now threatens to destroy
the 'lungs of the planet,' the rain forests. Their systematic campaign
of colonization was a chilling foretaste of American intervention in the
Third World that has become so common today we take for granted repeated
forays in the name of democracy and the securing of valuable resources."
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:
"Yet, of all the principles building the Religious
Right into a cohesive political force, the most important was perhaps
the least known. Edward McAteer was the Colgate-Palmolive salesman who
was the real organizing force behind the politicized Fundamentalist movement.
McAteer had the glib tongue of his profession, substituting Christ for
soap in his market analysis. He was more than a friend to Cam Townsend;
he was a major figure on the board of Wycliffe Associates, which was now
a powerhouse of resources for SIL, providing it and [Jungle Aviation and
Radio Services] with construction skills, money, promotion, and overnight
stays for furloughed translators on fund-raising tours. In return, testimonies
from returned translators, films, books, and slide shows parlayed surrogate
travels around the world for suburban believers. Special trips to jungle
bases allowed the more affluent faithful actually to partake in adventure
for God. The sheer human energy amassed by Wycliffe Associates was impressive,
but the financial core was fueled by reliable wealthy SIL backers like
North Carolina's James A. Jones, one of the largest contractors
for military bases in Vietnam, and oilman Nelson Bunker Hunt
of Texas. 'Bunker Hunt had helped me considerably,' McAteer freely offered.
"Wycliffe Associates '500 Club' was
designed to offer the richer members a way out of service through cash;
$500 or more each year was all it took to get a special certificate of
membership. Some gave much more. Texas's corporate leaders were prominent
in helping Cam build SIL's International Linguistics Center
near Dallas; the Linguistics Center's board meeting was one of those special
occasions where a Rockefeller business partner like Trammel Crow
could rub shoulders with an ultrarightist like Nelson Bunker Hunt. But
they were the old core of supporters. The real power in Wycliffe Associates
was its thousands of newer members, spreading the influence of SIL across
the country, and the influence of Wycliffe Associates in Cam's organization."
As Ed McAteer's applied his advertising and public relations
skills to finance the Summer Institute of Linguistics, these techniques
would serve him well in organizing a base of support for the election of
Ronald Reagan: "Promoting and leading this base of support into politics
was McAteer's forte. During the Carter administration, his name began to
appear among New Right circles in Washington, D.C., connected with North
Carolina's Senator Jesse Helms. It was McAteer who brought Jerry Falwell
into this crowd, helping Falwell build the Moral Majority. Then, in 1979,
McAteer organized the Religious Roundtable. Well funded,
McAteer pulled together many of the Fundamentalists leaders of the nation
to back the candidacy of Ronald Reagan. 36.
The Council for National Policy Nelson Bunker Hunt and Bill
Bright were boardmembers of the SIL associate, International Linguistics
Center in Dallas, in which board meetings "a Rockefeller business partner
like Trammel Crow could rub shoulders with an ultrarightist like Nelson
Bunker Hunt." Bunker Hunt was/is also a trustee of ILC, a board member
and leading financier of the John Birch Society, a major supporter of the
Campus Crusade for Christ and third president of the Council for National
The board of directors and early membership of Ed McAteer's
Religious Roundtable reads like Who's Who in the future Council for National
Policy. 37. In 1981, the CNP was founded as a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational
organization by Tim LaHaye of the Religious Roundtable, who was also the
first CNP president, with funding from Nelson Bunker Hunt who served as
third CNP president from 1983-84. Bunker Hunt was also among several principals
of the Western Goals Foundation, the domestic surveillance arm of the John
Birch Society, who also served on the newly-formed CNP Board of Governors.
In 1972, the JBS promoted the book, None Dare Call It
Treason by John Stormer, which identified the Council on Foreign Relations
as a pro-Communist Rockefeller-funded Trojan Horse on American soil. The
Council for National Policy was formed ostensibly to be the conservative
alternative to the Council on Foreign Relations and John Stormer is currently
Since its inception, CNP membership directories have been
'confidential,' CNP meetings are closed to the public and media and the
very existence of the Council for National Policy is denied by high profile
Evangelical leaders who publicly clamour for conservative policies in government.
Responding to an inquiry by researcher K.E. Barr regarding the nature of
the CNP and the reason that meetings are closed even to Christian media,
a vice president of Focus on the Family presented the confused image of
a Christian organization that is not involved in policy-making [only education]
and yet cannot risk media exposure:
"[Paul] Hetrick repeatedly described the organization
as a 'meeting of like-minded people.' He claimed that the CNP is a group
of conservatives concerned about the direction of the country, who felt
the need for an organization to counter the liberal agenda. He told me
the network of leaders across the country meet two to three times a year
to discuss issues involving '1) free enterprise, 2.) defense, and 3.)
traditional western values.' "In response to being asked how the
CNP implements their policies, he said the title of the group may be misleading,
and doesn't properly describe their activities. He claimed that they don't
actually develop policies. They are, according to Hetrick, 'strictly educational'
in nature. Regarding the secrecy of their organization's purpose and membership,
he stated that the only reason Christian media is not allowed in their
meetings is that: 'you can never tell if they are really Christians or
Early CNP membership directories were obtained by enterprising
researchers, however, and these revealed that the early leadership of the
CNP was, in fact, also represented in the Council on Foreign Relations --
the very organization of globalists to which the CNP was to be the conservative
alternative! On the first CNP Governing Board there were no less than three,
and possibly more, members of the CFR: George F. Gilder
- CNP Board of Governors (1982) ; Dr. Edward Teller - CNP
Board of Governors (1982); and Guy Vander Jagt - CNP Board
of Governors (1982). 39.
Robert Waring Stoddard who also served on
the 1982 CNP Board of Governors was affiliated with the CFR through his
Boston newspaper. 40.
Although we lack confirmation of this, Ron Miller, author
of Distant Drums, stated that "sources in high places"
have identified Jesse Helms, who served on the original
CNP Board of Governors, as a CFR member in 1972. 41. Later CNP directories
list CFR members J. Peter Grace (CNP, 1984-85; 1988) and
Arnaud deBorchgrave (CNP, 1988).
The 1984-85 membership directories advertised the CNP Board
of Governors quarterly meetings at the following world class resort hotels:
The Breakers [Palm Beach, FL], Marriott Rancho Las Palmas Resort [Palm Springs,
CA], Camelback Inn Marriott Resort [Scotsdale, AZ], The Broadmoor Hotel
& Resort [Colorado Springs], The Homestead [Hot Springs, VA], Le Bonaventure
Hilton [Montreal], Colonial Williamsburg [Williamsburg, VA], The Westin
After CNP membership directories were obtained by researchers
and copied for distribution to Christians who support CNP organizations,
venues of future meetings were not included in their directories. However,
researchers were made privy to a 1998 CNP meeting that was held at the luxury
Ritz-Carleton Tysons Corner hotel in McLean, Virginia. [See IFAS: News Reports
for information on this meeting.] 43.
Profiles of other prominent CNP officers and members reveal
a shocking number of CFR connections, such as the aforementioned William
Rusher who was editor of CFR member William F. Buckley's National Review.
Even so, these revelations should not be surprising since the CNP was an
extension of the John Birch Society whose early leadership
consisted of members either directly or indirectly associated with the CFR.
In 1976, The Belmont Brotherhood44., an expose
published by former JBS officers, identified the following glaring conflicts

the youth organization of the John Birch Society, Young Americans for
Freedom [YAF], was founded by William F. Buckley, who
is also a Skull & Bonesman and Knight of Malta. Various JBS and CNP
members have been involved with YAF, including Lynn Bouchey,
Connaught Marshner and William Rusher.
Howard Phillips, head of the U.S. Taxpayers Party (U.S.T.P.)
and The Conservative Caucus (TCC) appointed many YAF members while acting
director of the Office of Economic Opportunity under Richard Nixon. 47.
Richard Viguerie, who with Weyrich, Phillips,
Blackwell, Falwell and McAteer founded the Moral Majority,
was the Executive Secretary of YAF from 1961-64. 48. Besides CFR and Religious
Roundtable members, the upper echelon of the Council for National Policy
were basically refugees from the defunct Western Goals Foundation,
the domestic surveillance outfit of the John Birch Society which included
high-ranking members of the fascist World Anti-Communist League,
Knights of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, the
Unification Church of Sun Myung Moon and Freemasonry.

who became the architect of the hydrogen bomb. During World War II he

It is significant that Nelson Bunker Hunt, the founder and
main funder of the Wycliffe Bible Associates and Council for National Policy,
like many founding CNP members, is a Knight of the Order of Malta. According
to Russ Bellant,
"Although it poses as a Catholic organization, the
Order of St. John of Jerusalem is a Masonic group that claims to be the
real Knights of Malta. It's Grand Master for fifty years until his death
several years ago was Charles Pichel, and adviser . . .to Hitler aide
Ernst Hanfstaengl." 50.
Occupying a position in McAteer's Religious Roundtable, 33º
Mason Jesse Helms was also a key figure in founding the
CNP. With his top aide, attorney Tom Ellis, Helms had put
together a national political machine that was unprecedented for the ultra-right.
Tom Ellis -- who directed the agency which funded racial science for the
purpose of eliminating inferior races -- was president of the CNP after
"Tom Ellis was former director of the Pioneer Fund,
a foundation which finances efforts to prove that African-Americans are
genetically inferior to whites. Recipients of Pioneer grants have included
William Shockley, Arthur Jensen and Roger Pearson, who has written that
'inferior races' should be 'exterminated.' All three and others were funded
during Ellis' directorship on the Pioneer board. Yet Ellis served on the
CNP's thirteen-member executive committee with Holly Coors, Paul Weyrich,
and Heritage Foundation president, Edwin Feulner until June 1989. Oliver
North and Reed Larson recently joined the executive committee." 51.
With the help of the Viguerie Company, Helms
and Ellis' organization, the Congressional Club, funded
candidates and solicited support on favorite issues through direct-mail
campaigns. Helms' popularity increased during the Reagan era, when ideological
conservatism experienced a resurgence at the same time traditional values
of fundamental Christians were under siege. "The National Congressional
Club is Jesse Helms' PAC based in Raleigh and directed by Helms' senior
advisor, attorney Tom Ellis. The Congressional Club began after the 1972
Senate campaign, when Ellis retained Richard Viguerie to help pay off the
Helms campaign debt. Ellis and Viguerie built the Congressional Club mailing
list to more than 300,000 regular contributors -- a constituency for Helms
and a major financial resource within the conservative movement. . .Helms
has used his political organization to build connections with New Right
and conservative political activists. Besides Viguerie, Phillips, and Dolan
connections, Helms is actively represented in Weyrich's coordinating groups.
Helms is the chief legislative strategist for the conservative social agenda.
. .Helms also occupies a central position in the religious right as a member
of the Religious Roundtable, a lay preacher, and a former radio and television

*Author's note: I am indebted to David Harris for allowing me to use a portion
of his 1993 newsletter on the Council for National Policy as an introduction
to the following report. David's report, which was published in the New
Age Adversary Bulletin (October 1993), provided valuable information on
the Willard Garvey Center for the Improvement for Human Functioning. Willard
Garvey, a member of the highly secretive Council for National Policy, also
founded another organization which is mentioned in this report -- The National
Center for Privatization. I have added to David Harris' work information
on the National Center for Privatization and the Council for National Policy.
Mr. Harris' 1993 report also contained a list of members from the 1988 and
1993 CNP directories. Updating this list has resulted in an extensive database
of past and present CNP officers and prominent members. ~ Barbara Aho
