The following cites are not meant to be chosen for their trustworthiness. In the theocratic world and the CIA world truth is a secret and the rest is bullshit for the others to believe. Good luck in reading these articles.
Gottlieb was the head of an ultrasensitive CIA program called MKUltra, tasked with developing behavior and mind control, which began in 1953 and ran until the mid-1960s. Yes, it sounds crazy, but it was all the rage: The U.S. was in the midst of a Cold War and had just emerged from World War II, which had raised a “general interest in propaganda” and “psychological manipulation,” says H. P. Albarelli Jr., author of A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA’s Secret Cold War Experiments. The project directors were intrigued by the notion of making world leaders look foolish in public by drugging them, dosing whole populations through the water supply and manipulating suspects during interrogation. Rather than a war on drugs, it was a war with drugs.
It sounds like something out of a paranoid dream. And indeed, before the documentation and other facts of the program were made public, those who talked of it were frequently dismissed as being psychotic. But the U.S. government’s history of secret human experimentation ought to be kept in mind, particularly when we consider the power we grant to it and the way we regulate drugs.
The LSD experiments were purportedly carried out because the U.S. believed that communist Russia, North Korea and China were using the drug to brainwash captured Americans. Consequently, the CIA didn’t want to fall behind in developing and responding to this potentially useful technology.
The use of former intelligence, military and law enforcement officers for corporate espionage appears to be commonplace. Especially prevalent is the use of former Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency and Secret Service agents, as well as current or former police officers, and other former military, intelligence and law enforcement officials. These current and former government employees, and current government contractors, do their spying against nonprofits with little regulation or oversight, and apparently with near impunity. Many of the world’s largest corporations and their trade associations — including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Walmart, Monsanto, Bank of America, Dow Chemical, Kraft, CocaCola, Chevron, Burger King, McDonald’s, Shell, BP, BAE, Sasol, Brown & Williamson and E.ON — have been linked to espionage or planned espionage against nonprofit organizations, activists and whistleblowers.

CIA mind-control program: did it really end?
CIA mind-control program: not gone, not forgotten by Jon Rappoport
Seymour Hersh first exposed MK-ULTRA in a New York Times article in 1974 that documented CIA illegalities, including the use of its own citizens as guinea pigs in games of war and espionage. John Marks expertly chronicled more of the operation in his 1979 book, The Search for the Manchurian Candidate. There have been other reports on the CIA’s doping of civilians, but they have mostly dished about activities in New York City. Accounts of what actually occurred in San Francisco have been sparse and sporadic. But newly declassified CIA records, recent interviews, and a personal diary of an operative at Stanford Special Collections shed more light on the breadth of the San Francisco operation.
Cloak and Dropper—The Twisted History of the CIA and LSD

By Ryan Boysen / The Fix September 18, 2015
The sprawling MKULTRA program was much more than the sum of its deeply weird parts however. On one hand, the program demonstrated the extraordinary depths the CIA was prepared to sink to in order to combat the Red Menace, the Agency’s raison d’être during the long, strange years of the Cold War. At the same time, MKULTRA would go on to become the unwitting midwife of the ’60s acid craze, providing the drive shaft for the youth counterculture movement that represented the very antithesis of everything the agency stood for.

Rios Montt and Gospel Outreach Church of Eureka, CA
The Way Cleared for a Pentecostal Prophet to Rule Guatemala Again
In 1974, when Brig. Gen. Efrain Rios Montt was robbed of his rightful election victory by former President Carlos Arana Osorio, he fled to California and joined forces with evangelical crusader and recovering alcoholic Jim Durkin, who headed the Eureka-based Gospel Outreach fundamentalist movement. To Durkin and his followers today, the ascendancy of Rios Montt provides a golden opportunity to propagate their teachings and convert Guatemala into the first Latin American country with a Protestant majority by the end of the ’90s.
Rios Montt was reborn from the ashes of defeat and exile, and returned to seize power in the ’82 palace coup orchestrated by junior military officers and his “gringo” evangelical cronies, co-founders of the Church of the Word (\o7 el Verbo\f7 ), a Guatemala-based offshoot of Gospel Outreach.
During his abbreviated tenure, Rios Montt preached the word of God on television while publicly executing accused communists and common criminals; in the Highlands, his army mounted a bloody counterinsurgency, named “Bullets and Beans,” against insurgents of the Guatemalan National Revolutionary Union, who had recruited thousands of impoverished Mayan Indians.
By the time Rios Montt was overthrown by Gen. Humberto Mejia Victores in August, 1983, he had left an indelible mark on his countrymen: His scorched-earth policy had wiped out hundreds of Mayan villages, creating a million refugees and leaving 15,000 Guatemalans dead or disappeared.
Former Humboldt County Resident Efraín Ríos Montt, Guatemalan Military Dictator, to Answer to Genocide Charges Tomorrow
Almost thirty years after the end of his brutal military reign, 85-year-old Efraín Ríos Montt will appear in a Guatemala City court tomorrow to answer charges that he ordered the genocide of tens of thousands of his countrymen of Mayan descent during his year-and-a-half long tenure as dictator of that country. (Coverage: Los Angeles Times, New York Times, The Guardian.)
The court case begins less than a week after Ríos Montt lost the immunity from prosecution that he enjoyed as a state official. After being deposed in a coup in 1983, Ríos Montt embarked on a semi-legitimate political career that culminated in a failed presidential bid in 2003 and eventual election to the legislature in 2007.
Sometimes noted in the current round of coverage is the fact that Ríos Montt is an ordained minister with the Iglesia del Verbo (Church of the Word). This is a Latin American offshoot of the Eureka-based Gospel Outreach, a Christian denomination that has its roots in the old Lighthouse Ranch Jesus commune on Table Bluff.
When he returned to Guatemala, Gospel Outreach went with him. Durkin remained his spiritual advisor before, during and after the 1982 coup in which he gained power. As recounted in this Peter Schrag column from 1983 — well after Montt had ramped up the murder of indigenous citizens — researchers from The Nation magazine showed that Gospel Outreach promoted Montt’s cause, raising money among its growing organization to promote their church member as a bastion against the spread of Communism in Latin America. Church leaders were promoted to high governmental positions.
A few years after Montt was thrown out for the first time, a documentary by Bay Area filmmakers Steve Talbot and Elizabeth Farnsworth, showed that the church acted as the good cop to Montt’s bad in the infamous “Beans and Bullets” program, in which hundreds of indigenous villages were razed. These days, Gospel Outreach has an open compound — a large church, plus several homes — just of Harris Avenue, about halfway between Safeway and Redwood Acres.
‘GOSPEL AND GUATEMALA’ A LOOK AT PROSELYTIZING
The church is Gospel Outreach, founded at an abandoned Coast Guard station in northern California in the early 1970’s. Members had long hair, played guitars and conducted baptisms in the Pacific. Mild prosperity, haircuts and other trappings of respectability overtook them. The church now has a congregation of 500 in Eureka, Calif.
In 1976, a church member eager to proselytize went to Guatemala. Protestant success there in recent years, the documentary says, is a subject of ”intense speculation.” Why has it been a success? The documentary offers two reasons: Protestant fundamentalism encourages an ”apocalyptic” view commensurate with Guatemalan history; military regimes oppose liberal Catholics. Possibly, there is a third reason: The missionaries are awfully good at what they do.
The original church member was followed by others. An outpost of Gospel Outreach was established in Guatemala City, where it attracted upper-middle class converts, among them Gen. Efrain Rios Montt. After a military coup in March 1982, the Army called him out of retirement to head the new Government.
Thus a rural pacification program – called ”Beans and Bullets” – was an excuse to raze villages and then make the villagers wards of the Government. Gospel Outreach, with the Army’s blessing, supplied food, medicine and clothing. An old film clip from the Christian Broadcasting Network shows that even three dentists were flown in.
At the same time, Gospel Outreach spoke to conservative Christians in the United States. In an appeal for funds, Gospel Outreach said that Nicaragua was ”a model for Marxist oppression,” while El Salvador was the scene of a ”brutal war.” Guatemala, however, represented ”an opportunity.” The White House, apparently impressed, allowed Edwin Meese to meet with church leaders.

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. Jim Durkin and Joseph Anfuso are among its founders. (1) According to Sara Diamond, a researcher on the Religious Right, Gospel Outreach practices a moderate form of shepherding because its literature emphasizes “commitment,” “covenant relationship,” and “spiritual authority. “(2) It is an evangelical organization that believes the Bible is the Word of God and that the authority of government is ordained by God. (3)
Under Mr. Durkin’s direction the basic precepts of GospelOutreach evolved: “unquestioned acceptance of the Bible as the literal word of God; a missionary responsibility to reach out and carry the word to others; a decentralized structure with autonomous congregations and little distinction between clergy and laity; strong emphasis on family ties, and a pentecostal liturgy which includes the practice of speaking in tongues. “(3)

In 1986 I visited the GOC in Eureka when the Sanctuary Movement was bringing Guatemalans and El Salvadorans up through Humboldt County. I went to one of their evening services. There was no plan. I wanted to see what would happen when a longhaired, bearded radical activist met them. I was met at the door by three men dressed in dress pants and shoes, white shirts and ties and ear plugs and microphones we associate with a security force. Journalists who visited Guatemala report the same sort of men hovering around Verbo churches.
There are no named suspects for GOC. They were in the area of Judi Bari’s work. If the stories are true some of the members were familiar with the Dominionist ideology, familiar with killing for God and Corporations
Remembering massacres under Guatemalan President Ríos Montt
Posted by DavidMitchell under General News, History
It wasn’t long before Wimber began to categorize methodologies for healing, music ministry, leadership, outreach, evangelism, etc. All aspects of body life became studies of method.
Within a short time, Wimber brought on Sam Thompson, a licensed psychologist, as an assistant pastor in charge of counseling. Thompson developed the ministerial aspects of the Vineyard, combining psychological theory with charismatic practices. He taught how to look for signs of spiritual and physical problems, and how to deal with them. The emphasis was, and still is, on attaining spiritual power. The congregation would stand in circles, holding hands and commanding demons to manifest themselves in order to cast them out.
The church was growing in numbers, and had the outward appearance of a typical Calvary Chapel. Wimber’s “signs and wonders” philosophy was developing and gaining adherents under the Calvary Chapel label. Concerned Calvary Chapel pastors began to ask Wimber about the reports of people levitating, being “slain in the spirit,” engaging in aura reading, and other bizarre practices.
The rest is history. The Vineyard has grown to more than seven hundred congregations in eight countries. They claim some one hundred thousand members. In 1982, shortly after taking over the Vineyard, Wimber returned to the Fuller Theological Seminary to co-teach with C. Peter Wagner a course entitled MC:510, “The Miraculous and Church Growth.” It was a laboratory for experiments in signs and wonders.
The Vineyard philosophy of signs and wonders is expressed primarily in the teachings of John Wimber. Major points he emphasizes are:
(a) The need for a paradigm shift in the Church (we must change our Western world view to that which integrates reliance upon supernatural influences);
(b) The charismatic movement is “where it’s at” in church growth;
(c) We should be doing the “stuff” Jesus did;
(d) The supernatural practices beginning to emerge were of the Lord, and to be desired and pursued (i.e., hot, tingly sensations indicating healing taking place during prayer; trance-like euphoric states of “worship” characterized by a restful “alpha-wave”-type feeling, which is verification of the “presence” of the Lord; supposed “words of knowledge,” “discerning of spirits,” “personal prophecy,” etc.);
(e) Every believer can walk, talk, and do the very things Jesus and the apostles did;
(f) The signs-and-wonders movement is the third wave of God’s power manifesting in the 20th century (the first wave was turn-of-the-century Pentecostalism; the second wave was the charismatic movement);
(g) We are involved in spiritual warfare to take the Kingdom by force; for this, the major weapon is “power evangelism.”
The following CIABASE records describe the CIA operation in Guatemala, courtesy of Reuters and The Nation:
Guatemala, 1954-95. U.S. Undercover agents have worked for decades inside a Guatemalan army unit that has tortured and killed thousands of Guatemalan citizens, per the Nation weekly magazine. “working out of the U.S. Embassy and living in safe houses and hotels, agents work through an elite group of Guatemalan officers who are secretly paid by CIA and implicated personally in numerous political crimes and assassinations ”unit known as G-2 and its secret collaboration with CIA were described by U.S. and Guatemalan operatives and confirmed by three former Guatemalan heads of state. Colonel Julio Roberto Alpirez, Guatemalan officer implicated in murders of guerrilla leader Efrain Bamaca Velasquez — husband of an American lawyer — and rancher Michael Devine discussed in an interview how intelligence agency advises and helps run G-2. He said agents came to Central American country often to train G-2 men and he described attending CIA sessions at G-2 bases on “contra-subversion” tactics and “how to manage factors of power” to “fortify democracy” the Nation quoted U.S. and Guatemalan intelligence sources as saying at least three recent G-2 chiefs have been on CIA payroll — General Edgar Godoy Gatan, Colonel Otto Perez Molina and General Francisco Ortega Menaldo. `It would be embarrassing if you ever had a roll call of everybody in Guatemalan army who ever collected a CIA paycheck,” report quoted Colonel George Hooker, U.S. DIA chief in Guatemala from 1985 to 1989, as saying. Human rights group Amnesty International has said Guatemalan army killed more than 110,000 civilians since 1978 with G-2 and another unit called Archivo known as main death squads. Reuters, 3/30/1995
Guatemala, 1960-90. Human rights groups say at least 40,000 Guatemalans “disappeared” in last 3 decades. Most were poor Indians. Anthropologists, led by Clyde Snow, dug away at a village site. Maria Lopez had a husband and a son in one grave. She said on morning of Valentine’s Day 1982, members of anti-guerrilla militia took her husband and others. They had refused to join militias known as civil self-defense patrols and were killed. Six unknown clandestine graves in San Jose Pacho. Human rights groups blame most disappearances on army-run civil self-defense patrols set up under presidencies of General Lucas Garcia and Brig. Gen. Rios Montt. There are hundreds of clandestine graves filled with victims of the militias, right-wing death squads and brutal counterinsurgency campaigns. Washington Times, 8/5/1992, p. A9
On 1st May 2004, when it appeared that the United States might once again attack Cuba, President Castro spoke in Havana, addressing then President G.W. Bush:
“You have neither the morality nor the right, none whatsoever, to speak of freedom, democracy and human rights when you hold enough power to destroy humanity and are attempting to install a world tyranny, side-stepping and destroying the United Nations Organization, violating the human rights of any and every country, waging wars of conquest to take over world markets and resources and installing decadent and anachronistic political and social systems which are leading the human race into the abyss.”
At the end, Fidel declared that if Cuba is attacked, he would do what he was expected to do, and what he already had done on several previous occasions – he would go and fight! And none of us had any doubt that he would. But he had one regret, in regard to President Bush:
“My only regret is that I would not even see your face because in that case you would be thousands of miles away while I shall be on the frontline to die fighting in defense of my homeland.”
Within a week of the 1982 coup which brought evangelical Gen. Efrain Rios Montt to power, Pat Robertson flew to Guatemala to meet with the new president. (28) Rios Montt’s first interview as president was with Robertson, who aired it on “The 700 Club” and praised the new military government. (14) Robertson also urged donations for International Love Lift, a relief project of Rios Montt’s U.S. church, Gospel Outreach. (28) Rios Montt said that Pat Robertson had offered to send missionaries and “more than a billion dollars” in aid from U.S. fundamentalists. Robertson, however, claimed that he hoped to match the earlier CBN donation of $350,000 in earthquake relief and send “a small team of medical and agricultural experts” to Guatemala. (14) CBN reportedly sponsored a campaign to send money and agricultural and medical technicians to help design the first model villages under Rios Montt. (4)
in the responses
The Reagan administration hailed Rios Montt’s “improvement” on the human rights scene. For his part, Rios Montt explained on national television that he had “declared a state of seige so we could kill legally.” Villagers who supported the government would be safe; those who did not would die.
“The Gospel in Guatemala,” a PBS documentary, revealed the complicity of Gospel Outreach in the Guatemalan Army’s adminstration of camps for refugees from Rios Montt’s brutal counterinsurgency massacres of Mayan Quiche Indians.
It’s chilling, noting bink’s comment: “He is a born-again. Reportedly, his new faith was instilled in him at the notorious “School of the Americas.”” Considering the coercive evangelization of the U.S. military described by Mikey Weinstein, and troutfishing’s diaries, I fear an orchestrated ‘civil war’ being unleashed here after the next terrorist attack, as a means to retain power in the hands of the current usurpers. Zealous soldiers who swear allegiance to their religion before their duty to the Constitution would not hesitate to kill ‘dirty hippie liberals’.
For more about Montt’s religious connection check out the ‘Efrain Rios Montt’ tag, and scroll to dogemperor’s and Ishmael’s diaries. Ishmael is Jeff Sharlet, who writes for Harpers.
In January, former Guatemalan military dictator José Efraín Ríos Montt was ordered to stand trial for his role in almost 2,000 deaths and 1,400 human rights abuses that occurred during his rule as de-facto president from 1982-1983. Montt, according to the New York Times, faces charges of genocide and crimes against humanity for his part in Guatemala’s brutal 36-year civil war which resulted in the deaths of nearly 200,000 people….
In an article written prior to the publication of her book, Diamond pointed out that Montt was a member of Gospel Outreach, a fundamentalist sect based in Eureka, California, which became the Church of the Word. Diamond noted that “The Gospel in Guatemala,” a PBS documentary, “revealed the complicity of Gospel Outreach in the Guatemalan Army’s administration of camps for refugees from Rios Montt’s brutal counterinsurgency massacres of Mayan Quiche Indians.”
According to Bill Berkowitz of Talk2Action.org, televangelist Pat Robertson enabled the Guatemalan genocide.

1970s-1980s: The disruptions caused by the civil war starting in the 1960s and an earthquake in 1976 stimulate pentecostal growth, which is encouraged in part by U.S. missionaries distributing earthquake aid in Guatemala. Aid volunteers from the neo-pentecostal, California-based Gospel Outreach establish worship services that become the Church of the Word (Stoll 1990: 184). By 1994 the Church of the Word has an estimated 15,000 members in 25 congregations (Wilson 1998: 147). Guatemalan evangelicals start other neo-pentecostal churches, such as Christian Brotherhood in 1978 and El Shaddai in 1983, which attract members from the middle and upper classes (Freston 2001: 266). As the civil war intensifies between the government and guerilla groups, Catholics face government attacks because of suspected ties to the guerrillas (Stoll 1990: 193-196). This leads some to consider pentecostalism a “safer” option, contributing to rapid growth in the countryside (Garrard-Burnett 1996: 104; Steigenga 1999: 160).
EUREKA, Calif., Aug. 12— Officials of a California church that counts among its followers the deposed President of Guatemala, Brig. Gen. Efrain Rios Montt, deny having political ambitions and disagree with those who say their sect and other Protestant churches are being manipulated by conservative forces in Latin America.
A “born-again” evangelical Protestant, Ríos Montt joins the Church of the Complete Word (an offshoot of the Gospel Outreach Church of Eureka, California) in the late 1970s.
One of Ríos Montt’s brothers, Mario Enrique Ríos Montt, will become a Roman Catholic Bishop and head the church’s Human Rights Commission in Guatemala.
[Who started GOC? A NOC.]
According to Antipas’ mirror site, The Institute for the Study of Religion in Politics (ISRP), editor Stevan Shearer was an early leader of the Jesus Movement in the 1960s in Northern California where he was also involved in counter-intelligence.
” [He] was a Captain in U.S. Army Intelligence and served with distinction in Vietnam, earning three combat campaign medals, and the Bronze Star. He returned from Vietnam and served as the executive officer for Region I, U.S. Counter-Intelligence for Northern California and Western Nevada. . . He was an early leader in the Jesus Movement in the 1960s in Northern California and later started “Jesus people-type” churches in Washington D.C., Sacramento and Denver.”
The Antipas Papers  written by S.R. Shearer identify his intelligence assignments during the years of the Jesus Movement:
“From 1967 to 1972 he served as an intelligence officer in Europe (V Corps), Vietnam (525th Intelligence Groups), and the United States (515th Counter-Intelligence Group). In 1972 he resigned his commission and left the army to become a co-pastor for a “Jesus People” type church in Washington D.C. which was dedicated to preaching the Gospel to the “street people” in Georgetown (District of Columbia). ”
The February 1997 issue of Religion in Politics features S.R. Shearer’s article “The Death Squads: Bringing in the Kingdom of God Through Terror, Torture and Death” with the introduction: ”The author of this article was involved in the Phoenix Program as an instructor at the program’s ‘in-country’ training center at Vung Tau, South Vietnam from 1969-1970.” 7. A footnote states that the source of the information [Shearer], like his colleague, Dene McGriff, was trained at Fort Holabird, MD prior to becoming an instructor for Operation Phoenix in Vietnam. Dene McGriff acknowledges a nearly identical joint career in military intelligence and the Jesus Revolution.
“Mr. McGriff was a captain in military intelligence in the 1960s . . . ”
” . . .by 1963 [Dene] was disillusioned with Christianity and the lack of reality of the Lord in his life. At this point of wanting to give up, Dene was caught up in the Jesus Revolution in 1963, followed by seven glorious years of experiencing a dynamic, unstructured “body Life” and evangelism . . .
“In 1970, at the height of the Vietnam War, he entered the Army in Military Intelligence as a First Lieutenant and went through the Intelligence School in Baltimore (Fort Holabird). In six months, he was promoted to Captain and stayed on for the balance of his time as an instructor at the Army Intelligence School.”
In other words, during the same period Dene McGriff and Stevan Shearer of Antipas were involved in the Jesus Revolution, they were also intelligence agents.
They should know. . .
Antipas’ publication Religion in Politics, edited by Stevan Shearer, reveals that the CIA contracted with Eli Lilly to produce the hallucinogenic drugs which in turn produced a generation of drug-addicted social and spiritual drop-outs:
“Evangelicals are making a big mistake in believing that the outbreak of acid on the nation’s campuses in the early 1960s can be explained away simply as a result of the ‘hippie culture’ of that era. They have it backwards. It wasn’t the ‘hippie culture’ that created acid; it was rather the government that produced it, which in turn generated the “drug culture, which led finally to the rise of the so-called ‘hippiedom.’ That’s what really happened. The fact is, the LSD that Alan Ginsberg and Timothy Leary used to introduce a generation of students to drugs was produced in the laboratories of the Eli Lilly Company under contract to the CIA.”
To ask the obvious . . .
Did the same CIA, which gave us the hippie movement and drug culture, also produce the Jesus Revolution?
Evidence of this very fact is indicated in the testimonies of former Jesus People. . .
In Testing The Fruit Of The Vineyard, former “Jesus Person,” John Goodwin, asserts that hallucinogenic drugs and Eastern mysticism were brought into the Jesus Movement by hippie “converts”.
“In the mid to late 1960’s, there were profound changes taking place in America – changes to our social, political, and spiritual institutions . . .Relativism was the moral philosophy du jour. Consciousness was being expanded and ‘raised’ by the use of hallucinogenic drugs and forays into the Occult and Eastern Mysticism. This attitude of experimentation was transferred into the church as many of the young ‘Jesus People’ came from the counterculture and brought with them many of the drug and Eastern mystic-induced ‘revelations’ with them. These things I know with certainty because I was one of those counterculture ‘Jesus People’. (The term “Jesus People” was a media creation and I use it only as a point of reference.)”
The flamboyant leader of the Jesus Revolution, Lonnie Frisbee, was involved with the use of hallucinogenic drugs, was a divorced bi-sexual who died of AIDs either in 1980 or 1993 or 1995 [the stories are legion] and is buried at the Crystal Cathedral. During his funeral at that venue Frisbee was eulogized as a Samson figure. [The reference here is probably to Samson’s Nazarite vocation, which has significance in esoteric belief systems as previously discussed in The Elijah Revolution.] Long before Benny Hinn and Rodney Howard-Brown, Frisbee was mesmerizing “Jesus Freaks” with “The Anointing”: “. . . Lonnie could actually ‘see’ tongues of fire resting on the heads of those whom the Lord was ministering to, as well as seeing ‘where’ (what area of the body) the Holy Spirit was zeroing in on.”
If the CIA supplied the drugs used in the hippie culture, and hippies continued after their “conversions” to Jesus to traffick in hallucinogenic drugs, is there a credible source that actually identifies the Jesus Revolution as a CIA operation?
Found on the Mad Cow website is a short article, Inside Richard Mellon Scaife’s Conspiracy, about an interview in which former news producer Daniel Hopsicker elicited from Pat Matrisciana [CNP], president of Jeremiah Films and chairman of Citizens for Honest Government, an admission that the Jesus Revolution was masterminded by the CIA, and that he played a major role in this operation.
. . . . I shot it at him [Matrisciana]: “Are you Agency?”
I meant, of course, was he from the Company. The good ‘ol bad ‘ol CIA. But this is, apparently, not considered a polite question, though god knows why not because before he answered he coughed, and looked surprised. Maybe he’s just not all that used to direct address. But at the end of the meal he said to me that for some reason he’d told me a lot more than he was planning to, so I guess it was a successful tactic.
“I’ve been to Berkeley, too,” his reply began.
“I was ‘detailed’ to Berkeley in 1965, to establish a countervailing force to Mario Savio’s Free Speech Movement. While there I founded the Campus Crusade for Christ.”
And then it was his turn to grin: “I invented,” he told me proudly, “Jesus freaks.”. . .
“I was detailed to Berkeley”
For anyone who has ever suspected, in a dark paranoid moment, that our culture–especially in the 60’s–was somehow psycho-managed by the CIA, Matriciana’s offhand admission is enlightening, because it was clear he was in earnest, and I had no reason to doubt that he was telling me the truth. To me, its implications for the current scandal are staggering. Because Matriciana, when he made the Clinton Chronicles, wasn’t an independent producer toiling in anonymity. He was an intelligence operative for Richard Mellon Scaife, himself an intelligence operative, with longstanding ties to the Central Intelligence Agency.

THE NEXT AMERICAN
By Barbara Aho
In 1999, the FBI published a report titled Project Meggido, which was a 32-page document warning U.S. law enforcement officials to monitor religious and militia groups that are preparing for a Y2k crisis and inciting citizen resistance against UN plans to inaugurate a New World Order. Readers of this report will readily discern that Project Megiddo is not just about renegade anti-government paramilitary organizations, but implicates the mainstream Evangelical community as an anti-government and potentially seditious element of society. The following statements are found in an article which appeared in the Washington Post:
FBI Warns of Millennial Violence Risk
Police Vigilance Urged As New Year Approaches
The FBI is warning police chiefs across the country that it has discovered evidence of religious extremists, racists, cults and other groups preparing for violence as New Year’s Eve approaches and is urging law enforcement agencies to view the dawn of the next millennium as a catalyst for criminal activities. The FBI says those most likely to perpetrate violence are motivated either by religious beliefs relating to the Apocalypse, or are New World Order conspiracists convinced the United Nations has a secret plan to conquer the world. . .
The report. . .says that local law enforcement officials need to monitor radical groups for behavior such as stockpiling weapons and food that may indicate they are preparing for violence. . .the report notes that some radical groups or individual extremists may view these events either as signs that the end of the world is near or as part of a larger conspiracy that they must violently oppose, the report says. . . The volatile mix of apocalyptic religious and [New World Order] conspiracy theories may produce violent acts aimed at precipitating the end of the world as prophesied in the Bible.”
The agents have discovered that in preparation for the new millennium, certain individuals tied to these groups have been acquiring weapons, storing food and clothing, raising funds, procuring safe houses, preparing compounds, surveying potential targets, and recruiting converts to their cause.
While most of the report focuses on domestic threats, an entire portion is devoted to Jerusalem, where the FBI says an influx of tourists making pilgrimages and millennial cults will add to the danger. The study also says violence in Jerusalem, a holy city for Christians, Jews and Muslims, could lead to problems in the United States and around the world. The FBI report–“Project Megiddo”–is named after a hill in northern Israel that has been the site of many battles. The Hebrew word “Armageddon” means “hill of Megiddo,” the study says.
“Israeli officials are extremely concerned that the Temple Mount, an area already seething with tension and distrust among Muslims and Jews, will be the stage for violent encounters between religious zealots,. . . Additionally, several religious cults have already made inroads into Israel, apparently in preparation for what they believe to be the endtimes.”
The FBI report said potential targets of domestic violence include military facilities; United Nations buildings and personnel; institutions associated with the African American and Jewish communities and other racial and religious minorities; gay men and lesbians; and foreign military units residing on U.S. bases. “Armed with the urgency of the millennium as a motivating factor, new clandestine groups may conceivably form to engage in violence toward the U.S. government or its citizens”. . .
“The name ‘Megiddo’,” the FBI report begins, “is an apt title for a project that analyzes those who believe the year 2000 will usher in the end of the world and who are willing to perpetrate acts of violence to bring that end about.” [David A. Vise and Lorraine Adams, Washington Post, 10/9/99]
A VAST RIGHT-WING CONSPIRACY
Many conservative Evangelical organizations which are represented in a secret coalition called the Council for National Policy (CNP) are circulating the FBI report and remonstrating against its allegations as being ‘unfair’ to Christians. However, through their dominionist agenda and inflammatory rhetoric, these very organizations have fomented the anti-government hysteria which now exists within and almost defines Evangelicalism in the mind of a secular world. Like many CNP organizations which regularly excoriate the United States government, the Capitol Hill Prayer Alert now piously feigns incredulity that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would consider Christians to be a threat to the social order.

FBI WARNS POLICE: PLAN FOR Y2K
CLASH WITH RELIGIOUS GROUPS!
Overview: This week, in closed-door meetings in North Carolina, FBI experts will brief America’s police chiefs and senior law enforcement officials on how to prepare for and deal with what they predict will be a serious threat during the year 2000: domestic violence by religious extremists!
— The FBI has plans to distribute 16,000 pamphlets about this perceived threat and has recently published a 32-page study about it, dubbed “Project Megiddo.” The study, named after the Israeli plain on which the Battle of Armageddon will one day be fought (see Rev 16:16), analyzes “the potential for extremist criminal activity in the United States by individuals or domestic groups who attach special significance to the year 2000.”
(see the FBI press release at http://www.fbi.gov/pressrm/pressrel/militias.htm)
— From the report: “Religious motivation and the NWO [New World Order] conspiracy theory are the two driving forces. Biblical prophecy and political philosophy may merge into acts of violence by extreme members of domestic terrorist groups motivated, in part, by religion. The volatile mix may produce violent acts aimed at precipitating the end of the world as prophesied in the Bible.
“Within many right-wing religious groups there is a uniform belief that the Apocalypse is approaching. Some point to a variety of non-religious indicators such as gun control, the Y2K computer problem, the NWO, the banking system, and a host of other “signs”. Almost uniformly, the belief among right-wing religious extremists is that the federal government is an arm of Satan. Therefore, the millennium will bring about a battle between Christian martyrs and the government. At the core of this volatile mix is the belief of apocalyptic religions and cults that the battle against Satan, as prophesied in the Book of Revelation, will begin in 2000.”
— The FBI study concludes:
“Law enforcement officials should be particularly aware that the new millennium may increase the odds that extremists may engage in proactive violence specifically targeting law enforcement officers. Religiously motivated extremists may initiate violent conflicts with law enforcement officials in an attempt to facilitate the onset of Armageddon, or to help fulfill a ‘prophesy’. . .[E]xtremists who are convinced that the millennium will lead to a One World Government may choose to engage in violence to prevent such a situation from occurring. In either case, extremists motivated by the millennium could choose martyrdom when approached or confronted by law enforcement officers. Thus, law enforcement officials should be alert for the following: 1) plans to initiate conflict with law enforcement; 2) the potential increase in the number of extremists willing to become martyrs; and 3) the potential for a quicker escalation of conflict during routine law enforcement activities (e.g. traffic stops, issuance of warrants, etc.).”
(see the complete “Megiddo” report at http://www.fbi.gov/library/megiddo/publicmegiddo.pdf)
There is little doubt that extremist religious groups do exist in America, and that law enforcement officials must deal with any illegal acts they may perpetrate. Yet, with the memory of government missteps at Waco still fresh, and the FBI-Justice Department cover-up under investigation even now, it is extremely chilling for law-abiding, thinking Christians to read these words in print. Where is the balance?
Expert psychologists who analyzed the Waco tragedy believe FBI, BATF and military law enforcement methods aggravated the apocalyptic fears and reactions of the Branch Davidians. Will America’s top law enforcement agencies now fan the vexations and fears of anti-government, fringe religious groups and law enforcement officers, too. And what about many law abiding but “politically incorrect” Christians who decry godless government policies and hold to some form of end-times Bible teaching? Will they, too, be “suspects” of local law enforcement officials, enflamed by the Clinton FBI?
Please Join us in Agreeing Prayer:
— Heavenly Father, Restrain both spiritually unlearned bureaucrats and those who would maliciously use the Millennium as an opportunity to punish innocent Christians. Restrain, too, the religiously deceived and hate-driven from bringing reproach and punishment upon true believers (Ps 2:1-2; 2 Cor 3:12-13; 11:26; 1 Tim 4:6-10; 2 Pet 3:10-17).
The Capitol Hill Prayer Alert is a publication of Sound the Trumpet Ministries, which is also a member of the Free Congress Foundation’s Coalition for Constitutional Liberties and the Alliance for Reformation & Revival. Sound the Trumpet Ministries was founded by Council for National Policy member, Harry Valentine, and reports to Paul Weyrich, founder and director of the Free Congress Foundation. The Christian Manifesto of the Alliance for Reformation & Revival consists of 25 Articles on the Kingdom of God and 42 Essentials of a Christian World View. According to this Manifesto, the Alliance for Reformation and Revival is working to establish a kingdom on earth that is based on Biblical principles and reserves to itself the right to deny the legitimacy of secular governments:
25 Articles on the Kingdom of God
4. We deny that the Church must await the second coming of Christ for the Kingdom of God to be inaugurated on earth in time-space reality and in power. . . We deny that Christ will ever be given any more power or authority over the earth than He was given at His first coming . . .
16. We affirm that God holds the Body of Christ responsible for advancing His Kingdom on earth to whatever extent God has ordained, by applying His biblical principles through service in all spheres of human activity in all nations, prior to our Lord’s glorious return . . .
2 Essentials of a Christian World View
29. We affirm that the laws of man must be based upon the laws of God.
37. We affirm that it is the duly of all citizens to obey God ordained authority. We deny that any citizen is obliged to obey any government when it transgresses its God given mandate or requires him to disobey God’s Laws.
The Alliance for Reformation and Revival “denies that any citizen is obliged to obey any government when it transgresses its God given mandate. . .” We must inquire then, have these professing Christians, who refuse to recognize the authority of the present U.S. administration, considered that the apostle Peter wrote his first epistle to the persecuted churches of Asia Minor during Nero’s administration as emperor of the Roman Empire?
Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men. As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king. I Peter 2:13-17
Likewise, Paul wrote in the years immediately preceding Nero’s reign of terror:
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” Romans 13:1
Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work.” Titus 3:1
Evangelical Christians who subscribe to the political agenda of the Alliance for Reformation & Revival, rather than the plain teaching of Scripture, have naively walked into the trap set by the dialectical processors, whose assignment has been to polarize the culture and then to carefully manage the warring extremes so as to demonstrate that both are irrational. [See: The Third Way: Politics of the Radical Center]
Under the pernicious influence of agents provocateurs posing as ministers of righteousness, Christians — who should have the reputation of being exemplary citizens — have come to be regarded as enemies of the State. They will be dealt with accordingly, as planned all along by the Power Elite, who now appear to be the voice of reason seeking peace whilst the radical Evangelical extremists prepare for revolution. Presenting a very cogent argument against Christians taking matters into their own hands, a writer for Contra Mundum, Franklin Sanders, explains the mission of agents provocateurs. These words should be a matter of sober consideration by all Christians:
“Sophisticated totalitarian governments always use agents provocateurs to smoke out resisters. They send undercover agents into resistance groups to provoke them to violence, so that they can use that violence as ‘proof’ of the need for greater tyranny. Make no mistake: our American totalitarians are very sophisticated in controlling the public. I once heard something in an Establishment hanger-on’s speech that I never forgot: It is easier to exert influence than to exercise control. This is the credo for today’s totalitarians who abhor the crude, heavy-handed methods of Milner or Rhodes, Stalin or Hitler.” [Franklin Sanders, The Militia: Is It Time to Fight?, 1995]
Consider the Council for National Policy Directory of Officers and Prominent Members — agents provocateur par excellence who are leading the simple-minded among the sheep to the slaughter. Hear the inflammatory rhetoric which issues forth from the esteemed leaders of the Christian Right and which has ensued in base contempt for the laws of our land and every government official and institution. Many Christians now regard government as the arm of Satan in disregard of God’s appointment of civil authorities as His ministers and admonition to respect His appointed authority.
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afriad of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Romans 13:3,4
Having ignored the commands which God has set forth in Scripture, the Christian community may soon suffer serious persecution — not for well-doing, but as evildoers.
For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. I Peter 3:17
But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evil doer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of Christ? I Peter 4:15-17
With these Scriptural admonitions in mind, please consider the witness given to non-Christians by the following “Christian” radio programs:
Prepare For War! – Produced the hyper-Charismatic Discipleship Fellowship
The Next Revolution – Produced by the Free Congress Foundation.
ROBESPIERRE OF THE RIGHT
Pursuant to our expose of the Heritage Foundation, Paul Weyrich who founded that organization and is present director of the Free Congress Foundation, twice revised the latter website and finally removed the following advertisements for two FCF radio programs, The Next Revolution and Victoria:
“Are we on the verge of a second American Revolution? In the old Soviet Union, the government seemed all-powerful – until one day it fell.
“Next Revolution is one of the most radical – and most popular – programs on America’s Voice. Each week, hosts Bill Lind and Brad Keena say what people are thinking but are often afraid to say: that the cultural Marxism of Political Correctness is destroying our country, that ‘multicultural’ nations break apart in civil war, and that uncontrolled immigration and rising crime are turning America into a Third World nation. They ask the ‘forbidden’ questions: is real reform still possible, or will a new Revolution be necessary to restore America’s traditional – and very successful – culture? Is the United States Government still a legitimate government? Is ‘racism’ the real problem or do cries of racism arise as a result of bad behavior by minority groups?”
“Can America in fact go the way of Bosnia? Is ‘Civil War II’ part of our future? Is that what it will take to rescue our culture? Bill Lind is now working to answer these questions in a book-length version of Victoria – a novel in the form of a ‘future memoir’ that will rock and shock the ‘Politically Correct’ Establishment. . .
“She was not a particularly bad bishop. She was, in fact, quite typical of Episcopal bishops of the first quarter of the 2lst-century — agnostic, compulsively political and radical, and given to placing a small idol of Isis on the altar when she said the Communion service. By 2037, when she was tried, convicted and burned for heresy, she had outlived her era. By that time only a handful of Episcopalians still recognized female clergy, and it would have been easy enough to let the old fool rant out her final years in obscurity. But we are a people who do our duty.
“I well remember the crowd that gathered for the execution — solemn, but not sad, relieved that at last, after so many years of humiliation, the majority had taken back the culture. Civilization had recovered its nerve. The flames that soared above the lawn before the Maine statehouse that August afternoon were, as the bishopess herself might have said, liberating.”
Having published such incitements to violence and sedition, Paul Weyrich recently had the audacity to plead innocence to the FBI charge that certain rightwing Christian organizations are inciting criminal activity in the United States:
“Terms such as ‘right wing’, ‘right wing movement’, ‘ring wing groups’, ‘radical right’ and ‘right wing extremists’ are used throughout the report to describe those who should be the targets of law enforcement. One walks away with the impression that the Religious Right in America are lunatics who are a danger to society.” [Paul Weyrich, FCF memo, 10/11/99]
What is Paul Weyrich’s real agenda? Mr. Weyrich works with an organization called Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) which was founded by one Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira, a Brazilian extremist and self-styled prophet who openly called for the implementation of a world-wide “Christian” regime based on medieval hierarchy and repression. [See a picture of The eminent leaders of the American New Right Paul Weyrich and Morton Blackwell with the US President of TFP John Spann.] On the cover of Plinio Corrêa’s 1993 book, titled Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites in the Allocutions of Pius XII, appears the endorsements of these two Council for National Policy members:
“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 service.” [Paul Weyrich, Free Congress Foundation]
“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.” — from the Forward, by Morton C. Blackwell [President, The Leadership Institute]
Tradition, Family and Property is the parent organization of CESNUR (Centre for Studies on New Religions), the cult-apology network of Massimo Introvigne, which is under the direction of the Grand Masonic Lodge of France. The recent International Religious Freedom Act, which created a federal commission to monitor and regulate religions under the UN covenants, passed Congress partly due to the lobbying efforts of Dr. Introvigne. Besides Weyrich and Blackwell, Council for National Policy members loyal to TFP include Free Congress Foundation senior staff members, Connaught and William Marshner and Reed Irvine of Accuracy in Media:
“[Connaught] Marshner and her husband, William, recently resigned in protest from the Editorial Advisory Board of Fidelity after the conservative Catholic magazine published a critique of the ‘anti-democratic’ Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) and made reference to ‘hundreds of articles accusing TFP of ‘having Nazi-Fascist tendencies.’ Fidelity noted that the Marshners (and others who had complained about the article, including Michael Schwartz and Enrique Rueda) were employees or associates of Paul Weyrich, president of the Coors-supported Free Congress Foundation a staunch defender of TFP. The TFP co-sponsored a December 1989 Conservative Leadership Conference initiated by Weyrich, Blackwell, and Reed Irvine. Other co-sponsors included the [Sun Myung] Moon network’s political organizing arm American Freedom Coalition, the National Right to Life Committee, and the Republican National Committee.” (Russ Bellant, The Coors Connection, p. 21)
TFP/CESNUR, the Council for National Policy and Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church network in this manner: Paul Weyrich and Morton Blackwell work with TFP which is the parent organization of CESNUR, the cult apology network for cults like Scientology. Citizens Commission for Human Rights (CCHR) is a Scientology front which, in 1995, proposed that parents sign a pledge to eliminate psychology in the public schools. [So that they might substitute L. Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics!] The CCHR Pledge was heavily promoted by CNP organizations such as the Family Research Council, Eagle Forum, Concerned Women, etc. and Carolyn Steinke, who serves on the board of Scientology front Citizens Commission for Human Rights (CCHR). Clay Bock, a Scientologist of 20 years and education reform leader sponsored a conference which featured Carol Steinke as keynote speaker. The Orange County Register states that Steinke received a 1995 Award from the Scientology-supported CCHR.
[Note: Bev Eakman, author of “Educating for the New World Order (1991),” also received a CCHR award. Her book was an important manual for opponents of GOALS 2000, explaining how the government was monitoring students’ attitudes through testing and how students would be programmed for “appropriate” behavioral change. See on Bev Eakman’s web site: Keynote speaker, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), Clearwater Florida, Sept. 1995, Oct. 1998, Oct. 1999; national award winner for first education book, 1995. Winner, CCHR International Human Rights Award for ‘Cloning’ book, Feb., 1999.]
Citizens Commission for Human Rights also funds Paul Weyrich’s American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), according to a letter by Carol Steinke, a copy of which we have on file. An offshoot of Paul Weyrich’s American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) recently honored the wife of Sun Myung Moon, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon. The award was presented by Robin Brunelli, president of the National Foundation for Women Legislators and the wife of Sam Brunelli, the Director of ALEC and long-time member of the CNP. For more information, the extensive connections between the Council for National Policy and Sun Myung Moon were discussed at length during an AFN radio interview of Chey Simonton by Kelleigh Nelson.
Carol Steinke also sits on the board of Citizens for Honest Government (CHG) whose president is CNP member Pat Matrisciana, producer of a video against 60 Minutes after the latter’s expose of Scientology. Matrisciana also heads a video “ministry” called Jeremiah Films which produces anti-government agitation propaganda, e.g., The Clinton Chronicles, The New Clinton Chronicles, The Death Of Vince Foster: What Really Happened?, Obstruction Of Justice: The Mena Connection, The Mena Cover-Up: Drugs, Deception And The Making Of a President, The ’60 Minutes’ Deception. Jerry Tocsin [homosexual activist who monitors and exposes the activities of the Religious Right in California] writes of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy:
“Citizens for Honest Government publishes a newsletter, Citizens’ Intelligence Digest. It is edited by John Wheeler, Jr., a former editor of The Christian American published by the Christian Coalition. A number of California Religious Political Extremist activists or people with strong California ties are contributors to Citizens Intelligence Digest. Among them are:
William Dannemyer, former member of Congress, a leader of the Christian Reconstructionist leaning Christian Activist Network, a member of the Council for National Policy Joseph Farah, former editor of the Sacramento Union and Christian Reconstructionist apologist, a member of the Council for National Policy The Reverend Tim LaHaye, formerly of San Diego whose religious political extremists credentials are too numerous to mention, a member of the Council for National Policy
Dr. Stanley Monteith M.D., self-styled expert on AIDS, Santa Cruz radio talk show host, a member of the Council for National Policy
Brad Phillips – former staff member of Dana Rodabacher, M.C.
Larry Pratt, Gun Owners of America and close associate of former state senator H. L. ‘Bill’ Richardson, both are members of the Council for National Policy Carolyn Stanke of Parents Involved In Education (PIE), she also led the fight to abolish the California Learning Assessment Test (CLAS).
“The Citizens for Honest Government maintain a page on the Internet located at: www.chg.org. The web site contains an archive all of the Citizens’ Intelligence Digest where it is alleged that as Governor of Arkansas President Clinton frequently snorted cocaine, had ties to drug traffickers and names sexual relationships with numerous Arkansas women. The other interesting California link to the ‘vast . . conspiracy’ is the Rutherford Institute headed by John Whitehead, Esq., a member of the Council for National Policy, who is now the lead attorney representing Paula Jones.
“The Rutherford Institute was founded at the behest of the Reverend R. J. Rushdoony of Chalcedon, Inc., located in Vallecito CA. He also served on the board of directors along with multimillionaire Howard Ahmanson, Jr. co-founder of the Allied Business PAC. Both men are members of the Council for National Policy. Rev. Rushdooney is credited as being the ‘father of Christian Reconstructionism’ a belief that says democracy is a heresy and seeks to establish a Theocracy ruled by biblical law as our form of government.
“LA Times columnist Cal Thomas has served on the board of the Rutherford Institute for many years.”
A controversial expose of Paul Weyrich which appeared in The New Republic revealed one motivation for organization of the Religious Right: namely, in the unforgettable words of fellow CNP member Morton Blackwell, to deliver the Evangelical population – considered to be “the greatest track of virgin timber on the political landscape” – as a voting bloc to the political power brokers. The ultimate objective is to use the Evangelicals “to overturn the present power structure of the country”!
Robespierre of the Right: What I ate at the revolution by David Gann
“With his hair greased back a la Joe McCarthy, [Weyrich] warned his enemies: ‘We are different from previous generations of conservatives. We are no longer working to preserve the status quo. We are radicals, working to overturn the present power structure of the country. . .’
“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 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. ‘Out there is what you might call a moral majority,’ he told Jerry Falwell in Lynchburg, Pennsylvania [sic], in 1979. ‘That’s it,’ Falwell exclaimed. ‘That’s the name of the organization.’ Weyrich, who had converted from Roman Catholicism to the Eastern Orthodox church after Vatican II, did more than coin the name; with a handful of activists, he engineered the alliance between the Republican Party and the growing number of evangelicals angry over abortion rights and federal intrusion in parochial schools. More than a year later, Ronald Reagan walked into the White House. . .
“‘My view is Maoist,’ [Weyrich] says. ‘I believe you have to control the countryside and then the capital will eventually fall.’” [The New Republic, 9/27/97]
Ralph Reed in his book “Active Faith” writes, “At that meeting in Falwell’s headquarters in Lynchburg in May 1979, Weyrich and a group of conservative strategists urged Falwell to launch a new political organization that would tap into the wave of evangelical activism sweeping the nation. Also present was Howard Phillips, the head of the Conservative Caucus. . . .” [Free Press (Simon & Schuster), N.Y.,1996, p. 109]
The truth is that the “populist conservatives” which Paul Weyrich’s PAC put in Congress, including Newt Gingrich, were Rockefeller free market libertarians and the “right wing utopia” envisioned by Weyrich would revolutionize American society and politics on behalf of the globalist corporations and their one-world goal of consolidating all wealth and power into the hands of the few — their own. Among Paul Weyrich’s “handful of activists” who engineered the alliance between evangelicals and Republicans were: 1996 U. S. Taxpayers Party presidential candidate, Howard Phillips (CNP), journalist and former Rutherford Institute board member, Cal Thomas, and Colgate Palmolive Advertising Account Executive, Ed McAteer (CNP), who had served the same type of apparatus on behalf of the transnationalist penetration of Latin America.
The Evangelicals who have bought this package do not seem aware that Weyrich’s patrons — Richard Mellon Scaife, heir of the Mellon fortune, and Joseph Coors of the brewing empire who supplied the main money behind the Heritage Foundation — have been long-time abortion rights and population control funders. The official explanation for formation of the Heritage Foundation was as a response to a 1970 memo by Richard Nixon’s speech writer, Patrick Buchanan, who pleaded for “a conservative counterpart to Brookings [Institution]” — the liberal Rockefeller-funded think tank which was the catalyst for many of the legislative successes of the liberals during the 1960s and early 1970s. However, few conservatives have since paid any attention to the fact that the Heritage Foundation and its pseudo-conservative network have collaborated with the Brookings Institution and other liberal NGOs to develop programs such as the federal government’s GOALS 2000 plan to radically restructure American society through education reform, as detailed in The Third Way: Politics of the Radical Center.
Writing in Emily’s List of the interlocking non-profit organizations which exist to deliver Christian conservatives to the opposition, investigative journalist Suzanne Rini unveils the quiet collaboration of pseudo-conservatives like Reed Irvine with the liberal Rockefeller-funded establishment that they pretend to despise:
“Or, let’s take another non-profit organization, Accuracy in Media, long a watchdog on the right preaching that the liberal media is biased. Of course, that is so that rightwing followers only read mags and papers such as The American Spectator, and Human Events, funded by paymaster of the right, Richard Mellon Scaife, perhaps the most liberal man in the United States, if you define liberal according to its classical meaning which embraces laissez-faire cpitalism, its link to Social Darwinism, pop control and within that, abortion rights.
“Returning then to Accuracy in Media, it seems to us on the surface to be a non-profit watchdog group. But note its funding by well-heeled corporations: Bethlehem Steel, Scaife’s Carthage Foundation, Chevron, Ciba-Geigy, Coors Foundation (Coors Brewing and Scaife originally funded and still do fund the extremely influential Heritage Foundation, which ties into the pro-life, pro-family consortium), Dresser Industries, Exxon, Lawrence Fertig Foundation, Getty Oil, Horizon Oil and Gas, IBM, Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical, F.M. Kirby Foundation, Mobil Foundation, Pepsico, Phillips Petroleum, Smith Richardson Charitable Trust, Texaco Philanthropic Foundation and Union Carbide.
“Mr. Irvine’s corporate and foundation patrons want to make sure that those who slavishly check their faculties at the door of the ‘conservative right wing’ have fear and loathing about reading the allegedly unbalanced and ‘liberal’ media. Never mind that the type of anarchic capitalism–a mirror image of unfettered and brutal Social Darwinism–that the same corporations and foundations who finance Accuracy in Media are liberal. I mentioned this to Mr. Irvine when I recently had an occasion to phone him. Predictably, he asked me if I am a socialist! I also informed him that his long-standing patron, Dick Scaife, one of the major paymasters of the right, is an abortion and population control funder from way back.
Immediately, Mr. Irvine became a pluralist, informing me that he has all kinds–gay, straight, pro-choice, pro-life–working for him at AIM. I neglected to quip that the tie that binds is being on Scaife’s take, hyper-free market, and neutral on the morality of using dead babies to bring in the vote for the monetarist capitalism of Rockefeller’s original Chicago Boy, Milton Friedman, whose ideological theories on capital suffuse the liberal “right wing” think tanks that are Mr. Irvine’s community.”
Because the great majority of conservatives fail to comprehend the dialectical process in theory and operation, non-profits like Heritage Foundation and Accuracy in Media receive funding and support from a conservative constituency which is unwittingly collaborating with their ideological adversaries. In the aforementioned memorandum of the Free Congress Foundation, Paul Weyrich urged Christian groups to “sign on to a letter to the House Leadership to undertake an investigation, including public hearings, of the threat to the privacy and Constitutional liberties of Americans posed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s latest report, ‘Project Megiddo.’”
Given Paul Weyrich’s history of working both sides of the political street, Christians who sign up for this bandwagon may be signing their death warrants which will be issued when the FBI rounds up the lunatic fringe for the final ride to the Coliseum. Recall the mission of agents provocateurs: “…to smoke out resisters. [Totalitarian governments] send undercover agents into resistance groups to provoke them to violence, so that they can use that violence as ‘proof’ of the need for greater tyranny.”
THE HOUSE OF BUCHANAN
The inspiration behind the Heritage Foundation, in which employ are former Nazi- collaborators, Pat Buchanan feeds the media frenzy on the Religious Right with racist statements, such as those recently published in a New York Times advertisement of 10/3/99:
IS HE OR ISN’T HE A BIGOT?
The Words of Pat Buchanan:
About Blacks “In the late 1940’s and 1950’s. . . race was never a preoccupation with us, we rarely thought about it. . . There was no politics to polarize us then, to magnify every slight. The ‘Negroes’ of Washington had their public schools, restaurants, bars, movie houses, playgrounds and churches and we had ours.
“. . . now the ‘African-Americans’ of the 90’s demand racial quotas and set-asides, as the Democrats eagerly assent and a pandering GOP prepares to go along. Who speaks for the Euro-American, who founded the USA?. . . Is it not time to take America back?”
And in a syndicated column of the Washington Inquirer, this shocking statement appeared of Buchanan’s support of “free lance” murderers in Latin America:
“Faced with rising urban terror in 1976, the Argentine military seized power and waged a war of counter-terror. With military and police and free lance operators, between 6,000 and 150,000 leftists disappeared. Brutal, yes; also successful. Today, peace reigns in Argentina; security has been restored.” (“Death Squads and No-Win Wars,” 2/3/84)
Irresponsible statements by neo-fascists like Pat Buchanan, which serve to fuel FBI alarms about anti-Semitic and other violence, will cast suspicion upon those Christians who do not despise Jews but, out of their loyalty to Jesus Christ, will choose to resist the The Noahide Laws, The Hebrew Movement and the Mark of the Beast, which we believe will be the occult symbol deceptively called the Star of David. Further deceiving the elect, the latest issue of the Spotlight newspaper isolates Buchanan as the only candidate feared by the Bilderberg society of elites:
“Pat Buchanan is the subject of much nervous discussion among Bilderberg leaders. Buchanan has for years denounced international control of American foreign policy. His opposition to world government, which he loudly proclaims, his ‘America-First’ position, his opposition to sending Americans to fight wars in which there is no national interest and opposition to such economy-gutting treaties as NAFTA and the World Trade Organization anger Bilderberg.
“If nominated by the Reform Party, which he has now joined, Buchanan could be on the ballot in all 50 states. It would be hard to deny Buchanan the right to debate the two major party nominees. In such debates, the fiery Buchanan would blow out his fastidious opponents. It is a scenario that strikes fear in Bilderberg hearts. Having Buchanan educate millions of Americans in TV debates on its secret agenda for achieving world government, with America and all nations surrendering their sovereignty to the United Nations, is a prospect Bilderberg dreads. For 45 years, Bilderberg has employed immense measures to maintain its secrecy.”
Is Pat Buchanan really a political outsider? Would a true conservative join the liberal, pro-abortion Reform Party? Jim Keith, editor of Secret and Suppressed: Banned Ideas and Hidden History, names among the highest levels of power elites, the Scottish House of Buchanan. As an agent provocateur of probable Merovingian lineage himself, the late Jim Keith ought to have known this:
“The identities of the Teutonic/Zionist clique are well-guarded; even the higher servants are protected by the anonymity of immense wealth and the power attendant upon it. We speak here of individuals of such status that their kith and kin are referred to as an ‘house,’ not a ‘family.’ Among these are the House of Windsor,…the House of Rhodes and the House of Rothschild, with their immense holdings in land and in gold; also included, albeit grudgingly, in the elite are the upstart Houses of Onassis and Ibn Saud, who vie for position alongside the established Houses — the Williamsons, the Lodges, the Cabots, and Bierces; the Carnegies, the relative newcomers Rockefeller, the Buchanans, Browns and Raleighs. . .” [p. 235]
A short history of the House of Buchanan states that the area of Scotland that was given to the Buchanans “was known as ‘Buth chanain’, Gaelic for ‘house of the canon’ and may have been connected with the ancient Celtic Church… The clan flourished after supporting Robert the Bruce during the Wars of Independence at the start of the 14th century.”
In 1996, Pat Buchanan’s campaign committee boasted that Scotland’s hero: “Braveheart himself – Mel Gibson – has endorsed our Braveheart – Pat Buchanan!!!” In true William Wallace-style, Buchanan then called for a Second American Revolution:
“As Pat said, ‘Don’t wait for orders from headquarters. . .Mount up!’ All Buchanan Brigades across the USA find friends, neighbors and co-workers who support our cause. Enlist members and start a local Brigade, get your forces in shape and ready for the battle. Join us, the Buchanan Brigade, and with our united front, we will win the Second American Revolution!”
A current campaign memo carries forward Pat Buchanan’s revolutionary fervor. “[Pat said] ‘When I take the oath of office their New World Order comes crashing down!’. . . Pat is going to need us. Not only to stand with him, but to also be courageous enough to embrace the challenge and lead the revolution when necessary. As a Brigade member once said: ‘Pitchforks my ***! It’s time to lock ‘n load for liberty!’”
This memo closed with an appeal for prayer to St. Michael: “PS – Above all, please remember to pray — Pray for Pat and Shelley, for his staff, for me, and for all of us in the Brigade. And if you happen to be a traditional Catholic, the prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel is needed now more than ever.” [Linda Muller, 10/15/99, The Internet Brigade, http://www.buchanan.org]
According to the World Book Encyclopedia, “Saint Michael was the patron saint of (Scottish) knights.” We refer the reader to The Rosicrucian Connection to discover the significance of “Saint Michael” in bringing the Antichrist to power.
Is Pat Buchanan a true American patriot or does he have a hidden agenda? The 1995 Edition of Who’s Who in America states: “Buchanan, Patrick Joseph, journalist. b. Washington, Nov. 2, 1938:… Named Knight of Malta, 1987…” Albert Mackey’s Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and Its Kindred Sciences identifies the Knights of Malta as an offshoot of the Knights Templar:
“This Order, which at various times in the progress of its history received the names of Knights Hospitalers, Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights of Rhodes, and lastly, Knights of Malta, was one of the most important of the religious and military orders of knighthood which sprang into existence during the Crusades which were instituted for the recovery of the Holy Land. It owes its origin to the Hospitalers of Jerusalem, that wholly religious and charitable Order which was established at Jerusalem, in 1048, by pious merchants of Amalfi for the succor of poor and distressed Latin pilgrims….
“The Organization of the Order in its days of prosperity was very complicated, partaking of both a monarchial and a republican character. Over all presided a Grand Master, who, although invested with extensive powers, was still controlled by the legislative action of the General Chapter….
“…There are now two bodies — one Catholic and the other Protestant, but each repudiates the other….
“The degree of Knight of Malta is conferred in the United States as ‘an appendant Order’ in a Commandery of Knights Templar. There is a ritual attached to the degree, but very few are in possession of it, and it is generally communicated after the candidate has been created a Knights Templar….” [Albert G. Mackey, M.D., Thirty-Third Degree, Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and Its Kindred Sciences, Vol. I, Masonic History Company, Chicago, New York, & London, 1925, pp. 392-95]
According to William Cooper’s Conspiracy Forum, “Membership in the [Sovereign Military Order of Malta] denotes an allegiance to a foreign power in the form of the nation of Malta and the Pope… The Knights of Malta are the militia of the Pope sworn to total obedience by a blood oath. The Pope as the head of the Vatican is also the head of a foreign national power. This has virtually nothing to do with the Roman Catholic religion, and everything to do with being a participant in one of the four major ‘player-organizations’ for world domination — those players being British Freemasonry, French Freemasonry, International Zionism, and the Vatican.”
In the world of Power Elites where genealogies are all-important, some power elites are more elite than others. Such is the case with dual pedigree elites such as Phyllis Bruce Stewart Schlafly whose genealogical chart documents that she belongs to both the Bruce and Stewart bloodlines of the Merovingian Dynasty. [It seems worth noting here that Eagle Forum shows up on Yair Davidy’s Lost Tribes Brit-Am Israel e-mail list.] As a member of the Council for National Policy, Mrs. Schlafly’s anti-government Eagle Forum Alerts serve to manipulate true conservatives so as to advance privatization schemes, thereby hastening the transnational corporations’ takeover and subjection of sovereign governments under a one-world structure.
Mrs. Schlafly served as national chair of the bicentennial committee of the Daughters of the American Revolution, whose membership is limited to lineal blood descendants of ancestors who aided in achieving American independence. Although patriotic organizations such as DAR propagandize regarding our Christian Founding Fathers, the truth is more available in The Masonic Foundations of the United States. Phyllis Shlafly seems to be following in the footsteps of her ancestors by helping to foment another American Revolution which will implement the Masonic plan for a Novus Ordo Seclorum. As for the real objective of the British-Israel Movement in creating rightwing fronts to seduce conservative Christians:
“The effect of the activities of these Christian fronts is to create counteraction against the United States government, which in turn builds the revolution to a point where the people themselves overthrow their own government, thinking all the time that they are patriots. The purpose of the right wing as used by British Israel is to create and encourage a revolutionary state of mind and then the people will bring down their own government. The anti-Communist movement as it exists in the United States is peculiarly anti-American; while parading with the American Flag it is developing a pseudo nationalism to wreck the American government, just as Hitler did in Germany. Of course the claim of these people is that they want to get back to constitutional government and most of them sincerely want to, but they do not realize that the EFFECT of their actions is to destroy that which they believe they save. If they could understand the esoteric (hidden) purpose of their organizations, they would not be so anxious to be led to the slaughter. They should realize that as revolution increases constitutional government decreases. Government by crisis is a dictatorship. . .” [Helen Peters, The Union Jack, Political Messianism and the Right Wing, Undermining America with Americanism]
Another dual pedigree elite fomenting revolution is Pat Robertson, also of Scottish nobility and a descendant of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, known among European scholars as the Godfather of the United States of Europe. A recent 700 Club Program promoted “HANG 10” — a new movement in which American Christians are urged to “take America back” by hanging the 10 Commandments in public schools in violation of Supreme Court rulings. In Kentucky, voters will conduct a referendum on this issue and one Kentucky Christian claims that “Hang 10” will inaugurate a new move of God:
“This is the beginning of something that’s bigger than Kentucky. I think it’s bigger than this country. And I believe it’s God. I believe we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg of what God is getting ready to do.”
Pat Robertson also believes God is using Christians to start another American Revolution: “We had a war in 1776 that set us free from the shackles of the arbitrary rule of the British crown . . . And I think the time has come that we do that.”
Robertson Urges Revolt, Tells Viewers: ‘Throw Off the Shackles’ of the Courts
On his TV “700 Club” broadcast today, TV preacher Pat Robertson called on viewers to revolt against the Supreme Court and “throw off the shackles of this dictatorship that’s been imposed on us.” Robertson made his remarks in his commentary following a news story from Kentucky, where seven school districts have reportedly posted copies of the Ten Commandments in public schools in defiance of court rulings banning such postings as unconstitutional. Robertson likened these events in Kentucky to the American Revolution. He said:
“Ladies and gentlemen, I want to say this very clearly. If the people of the United States of America – all across America, in their churches and in their civic groups and in their legislatures – decide that they’re not going to allow the Supreme Court to dominate their lives in the fashion that it has in this nation, the Supreme Court does not have the power to change that. They are not going to be able to overturn the will of a hundred million American people. And I think the time has come that we throw off the shackles of this dictatorship that’s been imposed upon us.
“We had a war in 1776 that set us free from the shackles of the arbitrary rule of the British crown, and I think what’s going in Corbin, Kentucky, boy, those people like to live free. And I think the time has come that we do that.” [People for the American Way, November 8, 1999]
Although Pat Robertson encourages Christians to overthrow the present government and take back American culture for Christ, he would allow witches to practice their craft in the military. Last July, “After viewing a 700 Club report on a rally held Monday night by the Military Pagan Network in support of religious freedom in the military, Reverend Pat Robertson gave a endorsement to Witches in the military. ‘I’m not worried about a little coven of Witches running around. . . Rather than suppress us all, we might give them their freedom,’ said Reverend Robertson.” To which John Machate, Coordinator of the Military Pagan Network, responded: “Religious tolerance is the price of religious freedom for all. We were pleased that the Christian Broadcasting Network attended our press event. Their story was fair and balanced. We thank Reverend Robertson for his support of religious freedom.” [Military Pagan Network Inc.]
Pat Robertson, second president of the Council for National Policy, has on other occasions sacrificed Biblical principles for political expediency. Like Pat Buchanan’s approval of “free lance” murderers in Latin America, Robertson maintains that political assassinations are sanctioned by Scripture, thus overriding U.S. government policy which bans such murders:
“I know it sounds somewhat Machiavellian and evil,” Robertson said Monday on the 700 Club, a nationally syndicated television show on his Christian Broadcasting Network. “But isn’t it better to do something like that — to take out Milosevic, to take out Saddam Hussein — rather than to spend billions of dollars on a war that harms innocent civilians and destroys the infrastructure of a country?” [Columbus Dispatch. 8/11/99]
As a religious profiteer, Pat Robertson is a legend in his own time. Evangelical Christians ought to have paid more attention to the liberal media accounts of his use of Operation Blessing airplanes to transport equipment to his diamond mine in the Congo, to support for violent dictators such as President Mobuto of Zaire and Rios Montt of Guatemala, under whose regime 200,000 Guatemalans were tortured and/or murdered, and the sale of his Family Channel to Rupert Murdoch for $1.9 billion. The latest capitalist venture on the money trail of Pat Robertson was the reinvestment of his profit from selling the Family Channel in an aborted deal with the Bank of Scotland to make use of his financial services company to enter the American market.
Prior to his career as a televangelist, Pat Robertson worked for two years as financial analyst and management trainee at W.R. Grace Co., which employed emigre Nazis after World War II. Robertson was also godfather of the child of company president J. Peter Grace, who was head 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. Robertson was mentored by Harald Bredesen — “by then a well-established British intelligence operative” according to investigative journalist, Anton Chaitkin.
“International Christian Leadership was designed specifically to capture wealthy or influential leaders of society, into a network controlled by the group’s patrons. It was initiated during World War II by Col. Sir Vivian Gabriel, a British Air Commission attaché in Washington, and leaders of the Episcopal Church. The Netherlands royal family became the group’s prime sponsor and center of world operations in the 1950s. Bredesen wrote that his personal trainer, Abraham Vereide, claimed to have ‘won Netherlands Prince Bernhard for Christ.’ A strange Christ it must have been, because the former Nazi SS officer Bernhard was just then busy launching the globalist Bilderberg Group’s conferences and creating the World Wildlife Fund, with Britain’s Prince Philip.
“Pat Robertson started off as assistant pastor to Bredesen, the operative of the Angle-Dutch monarchies’ Leadership raised the money to expand Robertson’s and Bredesen’s Virginia-based Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) toward global power status . . .” 
The alleged “conversion” of former SS officer and Bilderberg founder, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, by Harald Bredesen’s mentor is documented in Bredesen’s autobiography, Yes Lord:
“[Abraham Vereide] was the founder of International Christian Leadership and the man responsible for the Presidential Prayer Breakfasts, where the President and some 1,600 of the nation’s leaders gather each year to hear the Gospel. I had come to know ‘Abram,’ as we called when I was making contacts in Washington, D.C. . . Through his work, he had met and influenced many world leaders for Christ. On that night, he sat in the corner of this very ordinary hotel room, a ruggedly built, commanding figure, with chiseled Nordic features, smiling blue eyes, and distinguished gray hair, telling an extraordinary story. It was how he had gone to the Netherlands when Prince Bernhard was about to divorce Queen Juliana for being a religious fanatic. He led the Prince to Christ, and the royal family was restored.
“He said, ‘When you reach a leader for Christ, you reach not only him, but those who follow him,’ He stood up and walked across the room to me. ‘Harald, this is what you should be doing. The men whose money, names and influence you have been using, you should be leading to Christ. I’m getting on in years, and I believe God would have me hand my mantle over to you. You could start off as my assistant.’” [Harald Bredesen, Yes Lord, Praise Books, 1982, p. 47]
Co-chair of Buchanan’s 1996 campaign and consort of white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups is another Council for National Policy member, Larry Pratt, who is also the president of Gun Owners of America (GOA). Larry Pratt’s connections with the Power Elites on both sides of the dialectic are documented in A Small Circle of Friends:
“[That] Pratt addressed the 1992 ‘Christian Men’s Meeting,’ organized by notorious Christian Identity racist, Pete Peters, is an established fact. That Pratt shared the platform with Aryan Nations fuhrer Richard Butler and “former” Klan ‘Grand Dragon,’ Louis Beam, the neo-Nazi architect of ‘leaderless resistance,’ is incontestable. That he gave a speech at the 1993 Jubilation Conference in Sacramento, California, an annual gathering of far-rightists’ sponsored by the anti-Semitic publisher of Jubilee, the flagship tabloid of the Christian Identity movement, is true and has been accurately reported by the bourgeois press. What should be of equal concern to the media is information about Mr. Pratt which is far more damaging — his close collaboration over a 20 year period with an international network of war criminals, neo-Nazi terrorists, and the organizers of Asian, European and Latin American death squads. . .
“Larry Pratt was Secretary of the Council for Inter-American Security. . .[which] 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. As CIS secretary, Larry Pratt was a well-placed ‘asset’ in his own right, serving as a link between the public policy/research arms of the organization, the interventionist wing of the theocratic Christian Right and as an ‘informal’ public relations spokesperson for Washington’s Central American agenda via Gun Owners of America and the CIS-affiliated, North- South Institute. But in order to fully appreciate the sinister nature of the Council for Inter-American Security, Pratt’s involvement and his broader links to international fascist networks, there is another organization, also little explored by ‘mainstream’ media, which deserves our attention, the World Anti-Communist League.
“[CIS] functioned in a dual-capacity; as an alarmist ‘public policy institute’ and as a domestic spy ring, a ‘privatized’ version of the FBI’s infamous COINTELPRO operations. Having staked-out Latin America as their geopolitical niche, CIS targeted Central America solidarity activists, progressive clergy, and the Salvadoran exile community. The group gathered intelligence and disseminated disinformation, funneling data on foreign policy opponents to the FBI and the intelligence service of the Salvadoran death squad state. . .In 1980, they published the influential A New Inter-American Policy for the Eighties, generally known as the ‘Santa Fe Document.’”
A major supporter of the World Anti-Communist League in Europe is Archduke Otto von Habsburg, whose son Karl is the heir apparent of the Habsburg bloodline which also belongs to the Merovingian dynasty. [CAQ, #27, p. 34] The European Union was spearheaded by Otto von Hapsburg who wrote in his book, Charles V: “Together with ecumenicity, European unity has become the major issue of our time. . . it might be possible to establish a united Europe and world peace, together with a Christian community and harmony between all believers. . . Our survival will depend upon a spiritual revival.” [J.R. Church, Guardians of the Grail, p. 96]
The aforesaid 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, i.e., parachurch organizations, to corrupt the collective conscience of Christians and manipulate them to further New World Order objectives. I quote here a portion of La Mafia Sects(The Sect Mafia) by Burn Fouchereau, introduced by translator, Suzanne M. Rini:
In my view, the “religious roundtable” set up in the area of the U.S. “right” was modeled as a “sect” — i.e., along the same psychological warfare lines as the per se sects, and for the same purpose of manipulation of especially Christian conservatives away from their confessional religions and their teachings especially on justice and charity . . . The Religious Roundtable and the Sects are analogous to the paradigm changing role of the big post-war CIA operation, the International Cultural Congress for Freedom (CF Kristol etc). As well, the 60s “hippie” and sexual revolution. What was still outstanding was the hustling of the conservatives, less available. So, the breakdown caused by the sixties and the post-war shifts in general, plus abortion, provided the organizing tool to begin the “sectification” of the Christians as well as a vehicle for neutralizing and colonizing, or when necessary, destroying those immune to the tricks and the dialectical operations at play. Also when needed, the apparatus for terrorist operations . . . [S.M.R.]
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.” Although this 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: “… [T]he 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).
Having helped to develop the Santa Fe Report on “Inter-American Relations, Shield of the New Order and Sword of the U.S. Ascent to World Power,” Larry Pratt now functions as an agent provocateur of the Religious Right. Previously, he served on the board of Weyrich’s Scientology-supported American Legislative Exchange Council.
Recently Mr. Pratt alerted the GOA regarding the FBI report, Project Megiddo. Considering a rather serious conflict of interest within GOA, Jackie Patru, who posted the GOA alert, inquires: Is the GOA part of the “controlled opposition”? Is Larry Pratt a Wolf in Sheep’s clothing? What is Pratt’s relationship to Paul Weyrich and what about Pratt’s long-standing membership in the Council for National Policy?
As you read the following alert from GOA keep in mind that:
1) Under Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution for the united States of America Congress does NOT have authority to legislate ANY gun regulations in the several States.
2) Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 gives authority to Congress to legislate in all cases whatsoever in D.C., territories and possessions. That does NOT apply to the 50 States which entered into the compact.
3) If Congress DOES pass the proposed bill, WATCH for implementing legislation in your State. Connecticut has already passed an Orwellian bill similar to the proposed federal bill. We have watched this happen time and again. It would be appropriate for the GOA to so alert their networkers.
4) Larry Pratt, Executive Director of GOA is a long-standing member of the Council for National Policy, controlled by Paul Weyrich. Weyrich wants a new Constitution for America – a Parliamentary form of government.
5) In the ’80s, Pratt was a board member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) which is an organization for “conservative” state legislators.
Boasting a membership of about 2,500 legislators, ALEC was founded by Weyrich. From its beginnings ALEC was the most influential state legislative lobby in the push for a state Constitutional Convention Resolution. John Armor, a lawyer paid by ALEC, misled and lied to uninformed legislators to induce them to introduce and pass the Con-Con Resolutions. The plan nearly succeeded.
In ’93 twelve states simultaneously had Con-Con Resolutions pending. When enough Americans awoke to the fact and began informing their state legislators of the dangers the resolutions failed in all twelve states. In ’95 they changed their tack and tried a back-door attempt at a Con-Con via the Conference of States. (See information on Conference of States)
6) Former California State Senator, Bill Richardson, founder of the GOA, endorsed and supported anti-gunner Robert O. Anderson for a position in the NRA back in the ’70s. Robert O. Anderson is (or was at that time) associated with the Committee on Economic Development (CED). The CED was established and is controlled by the Council on Foreign Relations. Anderson is/was also associated with the Aspen Institute of Humanistic Studies. Anderson is currently a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Question: Why would Richardson, founder of GOA, an organization which claims to be pro-gun, pro-2nd Amendment, be closely tied to an anti-gun establishment man?
According to a legislative assistant in Washington State, Richardson wrote a book titled, “So You Think We Read the Bills” which was apparently meant to be a humorous admission that State Legislators don’t read the bills on which they vote. So. . .what’s new? Is it a joking matter?
Ask yourself: Is the GOA part of the “controlled opposition”? Is Larry Pratt a Wolf in Sheep’s clothing? What is Pratt’s relationship to Paul Weyrich and what about Pratt’s long-standing membership in the Council for National Policy?
[Note: ALEC Membership is not limited to only legislators; the other significant members are the big corporations — 400+: “ALEC’s Corporate membership includes: Amway, A T & T, Boeing, Browning Ferris Industries, Castle-Rock Foundation [Coors Foundation], Chevron, Christian Coalition, Coca Cola, Dow Chemical, Eli Lily, Exxon, Fieldstead & Co, Ford Motor, Frito-Lay, General Motors, Gun Owners of America, IBM, JC Penny, John Deere & Co, Koch Industries, Mac Donald’s, Mobile Oil, Monsanto Co, Motion Picture Association of America, National Business Association, National Council for Private School Accreditation, National Rifle Association, Pepsi Cola, Proctor & Gamble Co, Quaker Oats Co, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co, Sarah Scaife Foundation, Sony Corp, Texaco, Upjohn Co, U.S. West, United Parcel Service, to mention just a few.”]
[GOA founder] Bill Richardson’s choice of CFR member Robert O. Anderson is entirely understandable upon further investigation of Larry Pratt’s related interests. A notable detail mentioned in A Small Circle of Friends is that Larry Pratt was president of an organization whose objective is to make English the official language of the U.S.
Pratt would use his skills as a propagandist and his position as president of Gun Owners of America, to launch a new campaign – to make English the official language of the United States. . . Under the auspices of CIS, [Larry] Pratt was the president of a racist, anti-immigration outfit, English First. Officers of Pratt’s group are also leaders of the alarmist, United States Border Control (USBC).
Recommended links on the English First website include one to the English-Speaking Union of the United States — an super-elite society which was formed by the Cecil Rhodes-Milner Round Table Group as part of its plan to federate the English-speaking peoples and to bring all habitable portions of the world under control of a British-American Commonwealth. The objectives of The Pilgrim Society & English-Speaking Union are virtually identical and there is an interlocking directorate and membership. Texas Attorney Eric Samuelson wrote concerning these societies which were the subject of a Congressional speech in 1940:
“Congressman Thorkelson’s speech was based on Sir Uncle Sam, Knight of the British Empire!by John J. Whiteford (1940). This book was described: ‘The history of a little known society promoting the aims of world government (covert British Empire) and how they pushed us into World War II in an effort to bring us back under the control of the Crown! A look at the leadership of the infamous Pilgrim Society which included the Rockefeller, Cecil Rhodes, Andrew Carnegie, and many, many more of our elitists!’”
Profiles of power elites who belonged to the English-Speaking Union include Nicholas Murray Butler, President of Columbia University,chief spokesman for J.P. Morgan, President, Trustee and Director of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (1925-1945). Otto Kahn who helped foment the 1917 Russian Revolution. Thomas Lamont, president of J.P. Morgan, who helped form the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA) and Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) at the Paris Peace Conference after World War I. Lamont later secured a $100 million loan in 1926 for Mussolini. Frank L. Polk. Director, CFR (1921-1943); Director, Northern Pacific Railway Co. which interlocked with Chase National Bank. Polk contributed over $140,000 at death to CFR. John Hay Whitney (CFR), Chairman of English-Speaking Union (1961). While Ambassador to Britain, Whitney set up a press service in London called Forum World Features, which published propaganda furnished directly by the CIA and the British intelligence services. In 1967 an expose in the NY Times revealed that the John Hay Whitney Trust for Charitable Purposes had been used a conduit for CIA funds. Whitney was a prominent member of “the military-industrial complex.”
Responding to Mr. Samuelson’s inquiry regarding the relationship of Order of Skull & Bones to the Pilgrim Society and English-Speaking Union, Antony C. Sutton wrote: “The Order does not show up directly on the Executive Committee of the Pilgrim Society, but only through family names, i.e., Aldrich and Pratt . . .” The Harold Pratt House, named after the son of Charles Pratt, one of the founders of Standard Oil, is the home of the Council on Foreign Relations. The Roadshow of Deception website traces the Pratt family history:
“The meetings were held at Council on Foreign Relations headquarters — the Harold Pratt house, Fifty-Eight East Sixty-Eighth Street, New York City. The Council’s wartime work was confidential. The name Pratt is found in use as a byname in 11th century England. Pratt was the English nickname for a cunning trickster. Pratt comes from the Old English word ‘proett’ meaning trick. Pratt is the family name of the Marquesses and Earls Camden. They are descended from John Pratt (d. 1573) of Devonshire. The first Earl, Sir Charles Pratt (1714-94), was a childhood friend of William Pitt (1708-1778) the 1st Earl of Chatham. England’s Royal Institute of International Affairs Headquarters is Chatham House, 10 St. James’ Square, London.”
British-Israelism is the belief that the early Britons and the Anglo-Saxon nations they colonized are direct lineal descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. Prominent British-Israelites claim descent from the Tribe of Dan which Scripture associates with the Antichrist, who will claim to be a descendant of the aforementioned Merovingian Bloodline. The Merovingian or Sionist conspiracy has created many fronts within the Christian community. Not only do the Merovingian conspirators control the “vast right-wing conspiracy” coordinated by CNP member organizations, they distribute a mass of disinformation by means of numerous organizations functioning within a controlled-opposition network. A “controlled opposition” network is a group of pseudo-Christian ministries whose sole purpose is to control all information about the conpsiracy and to prevent any opposition that would form against the conspiracy. In fact, the raison d’être of the controlled opposition network is to prevent recognition that the global conspiracy is the Merovingian bloodline, the apostate Tribe of Dan.
One branch of this extensive coalition of Merovingian fronts which have infiltrated Christianity is the misnamed “discernment ministries” network which is the subject of our expose, The Conspiracy Was Strong. This network appears to be directed from Great Britain by a British Unitarian minister whose father was the head of British Naval Intelligence who worked with the Bilderberg Group in its early stages of development. At one time Sir Anthony Buzzard worked as a teacher of British-Israelism at the Worldwide Church of God’s Ambassador College before its demise. Presently, Anthony Buzzard directs operations of the network of so-called discernment ministries whose purpose is to divert attention from the real conspiracy, the Merovingian bloodline, and its true agenda, which is the destruction of Christianity.
Although the “discernment ministries” pretend to expose the vast right-wing conspiracy as Christian Reconstructionism/ Dominion Theology, the fact is this group of ministries is comfortably in bed with the Council for National Policy with whom Reconstructionism’s founder and director, Rousas J. Rushdooney (CNP Board of Governors, 1982), is affiliated. The so-called “discernment ministries” have concealed the very existence of the secretive and powerful Council for National Policy which is the coordinating body and funding conduit of the Religious Right.
Dr. Rousas J. Rushdoony’s Chalcedon Foundation, a Reconstructionist think tank funded by millionaire California banker Howard Ahmanson, also a CNP member, promotes the erroneous concept of Christian foundations of the United States government and the Christian duty to reclaim America. The Reconstructionist Creed appears on the Chalcedon website. Chalcedon web pages include “Christianity Persecuted, Christianity Victorious” with numerous articles on the persecuted church and the responsibility of Christians to demand that governments put an end to persecution of the Church.
Chalcedon helped to found the Rutherford Institute which, under the leadership of John Whitehead (CNP), defends religious organizations and persons (including the Church of Scientology) being prosecuted by local, state or federal authorities. According to the Rutherford Institute, the organization “derives its name from Samuel Rutherford, a 17th century Scottish intellectual who resisted the idea of the divine right of kings. In his book, Lex Rex, Rutherford argues that all people are subject to a higher law, or God’s law, including the king. This same premise, that leaders are responsible to a law apart from and higher than themselves, was central to the formation of the United States government.”
Michael Barkun, author of Religion and the Right: The Origins of the Christian Identity Movement wrote of the dangers of the Reconstructionist mindset:
“Clearly then, the desire to model the American legal system after the legal system supposed to have been authorized by God in the Bible in practice led to behavior that ranged from advocacy and civil disobedience to attempts to disable the existing system through threats and violence. Examples of intimidation and threats of violence are exclusively found in Christian Identity, and appear never to have been present in British-Israelism itself. In this as in other cases, Christian Identity exhibits a far greater propensity for violence.”
Herbert Armstrong preached obedience to the governing authorities as powers ordained by God, quoting all of the appropriate verses — that is, until he was ordered by the State of California to put the assets of the Worldwide Church of God in receivership thereby yielding corporate documents for investigation pursuant to the complaint filed on behalf of Church members. Armstrong then remonstrated that the State was conducting an attack upon religion — a protest commonly heard today in the Religious Right.
Citing Bruce Barron’s Let’s Not Change the World, Let’s Run It: Movements and Ideologies of Social Takeover within the New Christian Right, Michael Barkun, who wrote his book in 1995, considered at that time the unhappy prospect that, should the Reconstruction/Dominion Theology movement expand beyond its narrow base, it would be possible to mainstream the demand for government based upon Biblical law.
“The theme of Bible-centered law cannot be left before examining one final element: the striking resemblance between the concept of Bible-centered law in British-Israelism and Christian Identity, on the one hand, and its counterpart among some contemporary evangelicals on the other. These so-called “Reconstructionists” are part of the dominion theology movement that urges the reconstruction of society on Christian lines prior to the Second Coming. The Reconstructionists, including such figures as Rousas John Rushdoony, (p. 209) David Chilton and Gary DeMar, consider biblical law binding and wish to see American law recast in biblical terms. There is, however, no evidence of any connection between the small but influential Reconstructionist movement and the British-Israel or Identity groups considered here. Indeed, there is no evidence that either is even aware of the other. Where British-Israelism drew legal inferences from its claim of Israelite ancestry, Reconstructionism formed scholars and institutions. Nevertheless, should Reconstructionism expand beyond its currently small coterie, it may create a climate of opinion from which similar Christian Identity doctrines will inadvertently benefit.
Since Reconstructionist leaders are trained intellectuals (something Identity figures are certainly not), the rigor of their approach may confer a halo of respectability on all ideas of Bible-centered law, including Identity’s, despite the latter’s completely separate origins.” [“Re-Christianizing America: The Reconstruction and Kingdom Now Movements in American Evangelical Christianity” (Ph.D. dissertation, University of Pittsburgh, 1991), pp. 25-30.]
Considering the veritable groundswell of Evangelical discontent and even antipathy toward the liberal Clinton Administration– a posture based upon the unscriptural perception that the State must conform to a Biblical worldview and the Old Testament legal system — and that this view is gaining momentum beyond the narrow parameters of Christian Identity, engulfing even the mainstream of Evangelicalism, it is incumbent upon Christians to examine the interlocking leadership of the Christian Right, aka Council for National Policy, which should be encouraging obedience to the governing authorities, but is instead leading an opposition movement against them.
MILITIAS & THE CNP
A while ago we received a message from a researcher in the state of Washington, informing us that the build up of anti-government hostilities by Northwestern American militias was aided by Council for National Policy members.
Anton Chaitkin’s expose of the British origins of Pentecostalism and the Militias describes the British intelligence operation within the United States to create a false opposition movement to the government and identifies certain agents provocateur within the the Christian camp.
The Militias and Pentecostalism
“Two years after the bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal building, a stream of lies is pouring through British-run media sewers, preparing credulous populists to view terrorism, or even civil war, as inevitable.
“The grotesque joke is on the American populists. Their paramilitary militias, and Pentecostal sects, are creations of the very “Godless internationalists” they believe they are resisting. The British Empire high church apparatus seeks to reduce the American mind to that of a clown, a hypnotized “Christian” who babbles or barks like a dog; a “patriot” numbed by anti-government gossip and Armageddonism, so that he sees his own nation as his enemy.
“Will these Americans provide cover, and become patsies, for criminal outrages by professional terrorists? In hopes that, instead, they will get out of the game, and turn their righteous anger against their manipulators, we offer this report on how the game is rigged.
“This investigation began with a probe into the armed standoff between police and “Republic of Texas” members demanding the secession of Texas, in April 1997. This writer telephoned into the besieged compound and interviewed Richard Otto, alias “White Eagle,” who said he was asking members of militias around the country to come to the site, armed for a shootout.
“I checked Otto’s background, and then shared my findings informally with militia members and others who might have been drawn into the provocation. Otto, it turns out, had been trained and set into motion by an Air Force officer who toured the world practicing New Age pagan rituals, in consultation with senior British intelligence drug-rock-sex gurus such as Gregory Bateson. This unappetizing profile, subsequently spread around by wary militants themselves, helped to discredit and defeat the provocation.
“While Otto and his band surrendered on May 3, reports flooded into this news service of continuing, outrageous provocations. Among these was the bizarre case of an anti-government Texas demagogue with important military connections, one Jim Ammerman, whose incitements have been widely circulating among separatists and militia members.
“A Pentecostal clergyman and retired Army colonel, Ammerman now controls chaplains currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces around the world, as well as within prisons, and even in the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He claims supernatural prophetic powers, preaches the imminent end of the world, denounces the U.S. government as illegal, and says the President has deserved execution. During the April siege, Ammerman “mediated” between the Texas separatists and the FBI.
“As EIR inquired further into the origins of the Ammerman operation, and how it is protected within the U.S. military, a much broader picture came into view. Described here are:
“Colonel Ammerman’s agent methods; Britain’s militia adventures among Ammerman’s clients, and the Oklahoma City bombing; +the highest-ranking U.S. general who was captured by Pentecostal mind-benders, and who created Ammerman’s anti-government agitation bureau; how British Empire master-race theorists concocted Pentecostalism; their colonial religious experiments among blacks in the United States and Africa; the America-hating, feudalist, high church aristocrats and globalists who pushed through “charismatic renewal”; and the national security danger from this British-owned military, paramilitary, and religious apparatus, including such operatives as Pat Robertson.”
The reader will notice that agent provocateur, Jim Ammerman, who “claims supernatural prophetic powers, preaches the imminent end of the world, denounces the U.S. government as illegal, and says the President has deserved execution,” also supervises “chaplains” in the FBI, the very source of Project Megiddo which calls for law enforcement officials to monitor such radical groups as Ammerman represents. Does the reader begin to understand the operation? That intelligence organizations have created a false opposition movement in order to provoke the Christians to violence so as to lawfully eliminate them!
The federal government appears not to mind that NBC will air a Y2K movie about “wide-spread power outages, nuclear meltdowns and prison riots that are sparked by the onset of the millennium.” Such agitation propaganda, combined with circulation of the Project Megiddo report by rightwing agents provocateurs, seems yet another psychological warfare tactic calculated to push conspiracy theorists and millennarians over the edge come Y2k:
“[T]he realistic theme plays into people’s worst fears, much the same way Orson Welles’ infamous 1938 Halloween radio show War of the Worlds sent thousands of listeners into a panic. The Y2K film has several large business organizations ranging from the Edison Electronic Institute (EEI) to the American Banker’s Association fuming that it will add fuel to the millennium paranoia. . .This is a movie that goes directly to some very fundamental beliefs that some people have about the millennium and even the apocalypse, said EEI spokesman John Castagna who said he watched the film at a screening last Friday.” [New York Post, 10/18/99]
REPUBLIC OF TEXAS
The introductory section of Anton Chaitkin’s expose concerns a movement called the Republic of Texas, whose members contend that the state’s annexation by the federal government in 1845 is invalid and some even maintain that that Texas still belongs to Great Britain. Texas Attorney Eric Samuelson informed us that: “Applying to the UN for recognition was also part of the ill-fated Republic of Texas restoration movement in wave one. . .Wave two will soon replace the old Republic of Texas group with United States of Texas (U.S.T.) (a name I coined) movement with true independence basis exercising the right to split into five states and obtain ten Senators.”
Mr. Samuelson also mentioned that the Republic of Texas may become a place of “refuge” for Christians who resist the New World Order. It seems that a Rev. David J Smith moved to Texas after a revelation that the state of Texas will be a refuge for Christians in the times ahead. Rev. Smith founded the Church of God Evangelistic Association, a Christian Identity organization, whose Newswatch Magazine sells materials promoting the Republic of Texas as the future “place of refuge” for Christians.
This radical plan may be related to a NWO plan for massive population reduction by removing undesirables from the U.S. to the southern hemisphere. The source of information regarding this resettlement plan was the book, Secret & Suppressed: Banned Ideas and Hidden History:
“Current policies of the elite regarding the general estate of the commoners, as I myself have seen and read, is telling. While a policy of division, factionalism and antagonism is the order of the day (particularly in the United States, where what must be the most diversified population on Earth is kept in a state of turmoil by divisive legislation intended to produce interracial strife and social stratification), there are two primary schools of thought regarding the actual use to which the subjects are to be put.
“While there is general agreement across the board with the notion that the commoners must be downbred, in order to reduce their intelligence and make them less apt to rise up in rebellion, a large faction — who appear to be holding sway — counsel a massive slaughter of the majority of the ‘useless eaters.’ I say that they seem to be holding sway, as documents I have seen tell of the introduction of an engineered virus, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) into the population by the World Health Organization smallpox vaccination program in Africa, and simultaneously by medical experiments on promiscuous male homosexuals in New York City. Current thought seems to be that only “Third World” ethnicities were targeted, but in fact the plan appears to be to reduce the world population overall to more manageable numbers; these survivors may then be limited as to reproduction, numbers maintained at just the level necessary to insure a force of slaves.
“The reason behind this reduction is among the most frightening revelations I feel I shall make: according to the best estimates of clique-employed climatologists, the world — contrary to the current ‘greenhouse effect’ story — is drawing inexorably toward another glaciation . . . When the icesheets once gain advance, it is the plan of the elite to move the trappings of civilization south, a forced march of laden slaves to the southern hemisphere and to this end, ‘housecleaning’, has already begun. AIDS ravages primarily (though not exclusively) third-world populations, hence the southern lands will be defenseless; massive tracts are already being cleared for construction in South America, and North America — expected to be covered, by the middle of the twenty-second century, with a two-mile thick blanket of ice — is being treated as a garbage bin, industrial effluvia of the most noxious varieties being poured out all over the land; it will cease to be of use to the elite, ergo it must be rendered useless to anyone else. . .” (Secret & Suppressed: Banned Ideas and Hidden History, ed. Jim Keith, Feral House, Portland, OR, 1993, p. 236)
It seems plausible that a “Christian Republic” of Texas could also become a point of entry for such “housecleaning”, a cache whence the Christians would subsequently be transported to Mexico and on to Latin America. With the fascist network in Latin America already well established (see Watch Unto Prayer report on The John Birch Society), having eliminated thousands of dissenters and used the remainder of the populations of those countries as cheap labor, could this also be the final solution for the residual “Christian problem” in the U.S.? Regarding the artificial manufacture of the AIDS virus, a new book, Deadly Diplomacy by Dr. Leonard Horowitz, credits the same fascist CIA-Military Industrial complex with this accomplishment:
“In 1948, Henry Kissinger, a 23-year-old American intelligence officer, recruited Nazi expatriates to serve in top positions in American military, aerospace, and biological science and medicine. Twenty years later, he left Harvard’s esteemed faculty and resigned a lucrative position as Nelson Rockefeller’s foreign policy attache’ to become President Nixon’s closest advisor and director of the National Security Council. Seeking alternatives to tactical nuclear weapons to bolster America’s ‘diplomacy’; abroad, the paranoid and egomaniacal Kissinger quickly ordered the Army’s Chief of Staff to requisition $10 million from Congress for the development and testing of AIDS-like viruses. Within ten years, the AIDS and Ebola epidemics erupted coincidentally in the regions of Africa ravaged by CIA military covert operations also ordered by Kissinger.”
Are the Reconstructionist leaders of the Religious Right truly interested in constructive change or, are they engaging in agitation propaganda in order to corral the Christians and represent them as totally unfit to live in the New World Order. Consider the distorted image that many Americans have of Christians–who laugh and bark like dogs in church, vociferously complain and demand legislation to protect their missionaries from persecution, favor capital punishment except in the case of convicted murderers who become born-again Christians, are in a frenzy of hoarding food, supplies and guns to protect themselves in the event of a Y2k disaster, and are generally racist, anti-homosexual bigots. Even though such is not the character of true Christians, be sure that evidence of such aberrant behavior and more is being accumulated which will be used against them in an international court of law.
As documented in our report on The John Birch Society, the Council for National Policy was founded by the same cast of sleazy characters who comprised the nucleus of the JBS intelligence organization, the Western Goals Foundation. In 1976, the authors of The Belmont Brotherhood produced irrefutable evidence which documented that the founding JBS National Council was entrenched in the liberal Eastern Establishment it purported to oppose. This watershed expose led to a massive number of defections from the John Birch Society. Nonetheless, as noted in our report on the British-Israel Movement, it is the custom of conspiratorial organizations, upon exposure, to create new fronts to maintain their constituency and to diffuse public perception of the larger conspiracy which is still intact. It is therefore no coincidence that the Moral Majority was launched in 1979 and the Council for National Policy in 1981! Neither is the CNP a conservative, anti-Communist organization but rather, like the JBS, a globalist organization, anti-American and unpatriotic in the extreme.
To enable Christians to research and understand the connections of Council for National Policy members with every manner of occult, subversive and criminal element, we have compiled an extensive albeit incomplete database of prominent past and present CNP members which is now posted on our website:
The Council for National Policy
Spiritual Warfare: The Politics of the Christian Right
By Sara Diamond
Book Reviews – Spiritual Warfare: The Politics of the Christian Right.
By Sara Diamond. South End Press, Boston, MA, 1989, 292 pages.
Scholars have often debated whether there can be a truly “value-free” behavioral science. These two books — written by a sociologist, a psychologist, and a historian — demonstrate the difficulty of maintaining objectivity and neutrality when writing about politics and religion. The authors’ biases are evident from the start. Nevertheless, both books deserve our attention not only because of the perspectives they represent, but because they contain historical and current information of particular value to the student of cults and now religions.
In Spiritual Warfare sociologist Sara Diamond presents an enormous amount of detail on the contours of the Christian Right. The first chapter contains a wealth of information concerning religious broadcasting, which she identifies as the single most important element in the rise of the Christian Right. Succeeding chapters deal with the “pro-family” movement, ultra-conservative women activists, and the sociopolitical activities of fundamentalists in Central America. Of special interest to cult watchers is Diamond’s discussion of the Unification Church’s linkage to right-wing causes and their public relations efforts in the name of freedom of religion.
Perhaps the most useful information for the student of new religious movements is the insightful sections on the shepherding phenomenon, including groups like Maranatha, Gospel Outreach, and the Reconstructionists.
The segment of the book which I found least convincing was the discussion of U.S. aid programs to repressive regimes and the alleged theopolitical involvement of the Christian Right in such projects. The author clearly favors the liberation theology approach to the complex problems of Latin America and denigrates virtually all Protestant evangelical missionary, relief, and development efforts. While some right-wing religionists have no doubt been involved in counter insurgency activity, it is unfair to target such respected organizations as World Vision and Wycliffe Bible Translators with broad compliance in U.S. militaristic and intelligence operations simply because of those organizations’ “decidedly conservative and pro-capitalist” orientation. And I take issue with the authors’ contention that since the time of the early Christian church “missionary work has always been a political project.”
