As veteran ISGP readers might already suspect, this oversight and article is a mirror of ISGP’s The Grassroots Myth: “Liberal CIA” Network of New Left Foundations, Media and Activist Groups. Its purpose is the same too: organizing large amounts of information into a single file to prevent duplicate content from spreading throughout the site. And secondly, to identify a core structure within the conservative movement, making it easier to figure out who or what exactly the power behind the throne is here.

Although sources can always be found by clicking on the links to the individual point-summaries, notes in the following chapters are limited for now. This is not just due to time constraints, but also because it is not clear yet how much tweaking and adding still needs to be done. Time will tell.

“Conservative CIA” explained

Strictly put, the terms “liberal CIA” and “conservative CIA” have been introduced by ISGP to denote anti-establishment controlled opposition movements with ties to a certain set of foundations which are historically said to serve as conduits for CIA operations. On the liberal “new left” side the classic examples have been the Rockefeller, Ford and Carnegie foundations – today supplemented with Open Society (Soros), Bill & Melinda Gates, NoVo (Warren Buffett) and many others.

As for the right, we’re traditionally talking about the hardly acknowledged alliance between Christian conservatives, both establishment and “anti-establishment”, and neocon Zionist elements. [1] All of them share extremist anti-communist views and, except for certain Christian anti-establishment groups, also an extremist pro-War on Terror stance. Much of the funding for this network comes from a number of Christian-Zionist (neocon) foundations as Olin, Bradley and Scaife. The Olin Foundation is defunct now, but a good number of others have picked up this gap, most notably the Mercer Family Foundation, which played an important role in bringing Donald Trump to power in 2016. Foundations as Olin first arose in the 1970s as a counter to (Rockefeller) democrat Jimmy Carter, during which time inflation rose from about 4.5% to 11% and anti-“free enterprise” views increased in prominence. JFK and LBJ of the 1960s also played a role. So did the anti-Vietnam War protests and partly all the CIA investigations of the 1970s, all of which helped shift public attitude towards the left.

Considering the right is very much plugged into national security, ties to the DOD and CIA are much more direct than with its liberal CIA counterparts, where we more or less rely on the assumption that the Eastern Establishment Rockefeller clique has been fronting for the CIA since the start of the Cold War. There are a ton indications pointing in that direction, but it’s still a bit of an assumption. Certainly (even) more evidence would be welcome.

On the other hand, it doesn’t really matter how deep the ties between the CIA and “conservative CIA” foundations and NGOs are, as we-the-people are still totally confused as to what exactly “CIA” means. Is it just a bureaucratic organization that switches leadership every four to eight years and is not active domestically – or is the “CIA”, similar to the State Department, more like a cog in a shadowy, fully private Eastern Establishment machine that is fielding its own left-right intelligence operations through the media, think tanks and political parties it infiltrates, sets up and controls? In this scenario, Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission and the CFR on the “left” – similar to the American Enterprise Institute, Hoover Institution and Council for National Policy on the “right” – are as much CIA front organizations as vice versa: the core network here controlling the CIA and appropriating its capabilities for use in the private sector. The evidence is very clearly pointing to the latter scenario, but it’s next to impossible to wrap one’s head around how private superclass intelligence operations can be kept so completely secret while they are clearly being deployed at an enormous scale throughout our western society.

To illustrate in a bit more detail, the terms “liberal CIA” and “conservative CIA” do not refer to establishment GOP and DNC candidates, nor to known superclass members: anyone from Donald Rumsfeld to a Henry Kissinger or Madeleine Albright – because we already know these people have their own agenda. No, these terms denote individuals and groups that present themselves as “opposition” to “the establishment” – but, through a combination of their (dogmatic) opinions and funding from various CIA-tied foundations (or the CIA itself) can be identified as “controlled opposition”.

“Liberal” and “conservative CIA” “boxes”

A few months before the publication of this article, this author put out ISGP’s Box Model of Politics. Over the past few decades the United States in particular has seen an endless stream of activists and terrorists that rather easily can be classified in very distinct boxes of political thought. We’re talking anything from Howard Zinn and the Weathermen (antifa), to Noam Chomsky and Bernie Sanders (social democrat/liberal CIA), to the John Birch Society, Alex Jones, the MAGA Bomber and Rense (conservative CIA). The political boxes were summarized as follows:

“Liberal CIA” are well-behaving social-democrats for the most part, who are always criticizing the establishment Democrats (and Republicans) of being “too corporate”. The antifa do the same thing, but are far more unhinged (communists, anarchists, black revolutionaries), prone to conspiracy theory/disinformation, and basically “deep cover” operatives in the sense that the regular “liberal CIA” foundations seldom are directly affiliated with them. Very sneaky, similar to establishment Democrats and European liberals: all of them are rabidly in favor of “the great replacement” of European whites by a mix of Latinos, Arabs and African negroes. And none of them expose very obvious conspiracies as the JFK assassination and 9/11.

As for “conservative CIA”, those are the boxes below “Rockefeller Republicans”, “Neoconservatives” and the “Christian Conservative lobby”, namely the “Libertarians” and what today has been labeled the “Alt Right”. A first thing that needs to be mentioned here and which is ultra-sneaky, is that all these establishment conservatives also happen to be fully in favor of “the great replacement”. The only difference is that liberals are always emphasizing the social aspects, while (the equally NAFTA-loving) conservative pundits – usually only when pressed on it – prefer to highlight the economic aspects.

Even the Libertarian movement is divided on the Third World immigration issue. There is a huge establishment aspect to the Libertarian movement. The CATO Institute, which has seen the involvement of the likes of William Buckley Jr., Steve Forbes and Theodore Forstmann, has argued that Third World immigration should be allowed to continue because it is against Libertarian “ideals” to put restrictions on anything that hampers the free flow of the economy. Very, very sneaky, and very similar to how the communist antifa have been turned from economic communists (a giant historical threat to anything corporate) to racial and gender communists who actually do the bidding of the multinationals they claim to oppose.

“Alt Right” is Old Right – and “Conservative CIA”

We’ll get back to the Libertarian movement, but clearly it’s a very mixed bag that contains lots of establishment interests. That leaves us with the “Alternative Right”, i.e. “Alt Right”, a term that only became mainstream in the 2015-2016 period when Trump rose to prominence. Inconvenient as it is, originally the “Alternative Right” wasn’t even recognized, except maybe for calling them “Libertarians”, “John Birchers”, “crazies”, or “conspiracy theorists”. Not allowing a movement to have a name aids in marginalizing it.

Fact is, the “Alt Right” pretty much mimics the Old Right, which pre- and more marginally post-World War II advocated for isolationism, anti-intervention, Christianity, “small government” and libertarianism. Already back then it opposed the Eastern Establishment. The “Alt Right” adds a belief in a number of modern conspiracies – in some corners at least – and for the rest is the only political box in the United States that opposes Third World immigration – and very strongly so.

November 19, 2016: Richard Spencer’s National Policy Institute speech: saying precisely what needs to be said… only to mix it with Naziism. How did he get prominent again? Oh right, Regnery-funded, which appears to be the same as CIA-funded.
His equally famous Nazi ally, Andrew Anglin of The Daily Stormer, happens to be an extreme reptilian and shark humanoid internet troll – and that’s just where the weirdness starts.

Coincidentally, this “Alt Right” is a hotch potch of crazies, John Birchers, conspiracy disinformers, Holocaust deniers and outright Nazis. In fact, it was Richard Spencer, a major Trump supporter and president of the Regnery-funded Nazi outfit National Policy Institute, who in 2010 registered the urls and, today the home of an inactive Nazi-esque news website. That should tell us just how new this term is. And also that, as usual, Nazis have actively been appropriating a very generic term – “alternative” – that really stands for “anti-establishment right”.

It should be clear that it is with the “Alt Right” where the term “conservative CIA” really comes into its own. As readers will quickly find out by analyzing all the entries here, there’s really no point in calling the “Alt Right” the “Alt Right”. It should either be called Old Right, or, more accurately, “conservative CIA”. Similar to the “liberal CIA” social Democrats and the antifa, it’s a completely artificial creation, meant to pervert huge anti-immigration sentiment among the population and prevent any kind of decent, honest research into conspiracies as JFK and 9/11. If you are against further Third World immigration – which easily 70-80% of whites are and 60% of minorities – or open to conspiracy, you are literally forced to take refuge in this pre-created political box and get behind one of the gurus here. Otherwise you and your opinions essentially don’t exist.

Obviously only a small aspect of the “Alt Right” is Nazi, with other elements complaining regularly about this mischaracterization by the mainstream media. However, none of this means that the remaining elements – generally Old Right as Infowars and neocon as Breitbart – actually are independent. Far from it. It’s just roleplay with a number of different layers.

Buckleys & Birchers: all historical conservatism is “conservative CIA”

Pre-World War II there already was an anti-liberal elite bias amongst the population, certainly against the emerging Rockefellers. After World War II, the conservative rebellion continued against the Eastern Establishment. Key was the 1951 book God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of “Academic Freedom”. Written by William Buckley, Jr., the book was critical of the atheist, socialist and Keynesian teachings at Yale and other Eastern Establishment universities, even more so because not all students agreed with them. Buckley’s book proved influential when in 1955 he founded the National Review and established himself as the leader of the “anti-establishment” conservative leader of the United States. In 1966 he also was the founder and presenter of Firing Line on television, a position he held until 1999.

May 10, 1974: Conservative “godfather” William Buckley, Jr. interviewing E. Howard Hunt on his Firing Line over the Watergate controversy. Buckley gives “full disclosure” on his close relationship with Hunt, but does not mention Hunt was his CIA handler – while he wrote God and Man at Yale.
Buckley, a Skull & Bonesman, had just joined the CFR and was about to receive a Bilderberg invitation at this point.

The thing is, as many people are aware of these days, Buckley was as elite as they come. His family derived its wealth from a lucrative oil deal William Buckley, Sr. struck with the Rockefeller’s Standard Oil in the late 1930s. At Yale, Buckley, Jr. was a member of the controversial Skull & Bones secret society. In the 1951-1952 period he was a (later) self-described “deep cover” CIA agent, whose lone handler was E. Howard Hunt, reportedly the only conservative CIA officer in the Agency and later, among other things, extremely notorious over the Watergate affair. Obviously, no one in the public was aware of Buckley’s active CIA employment when they were reading God and Man at Yale – but the book, quite literally, was a CIA creation. Which in turn says a lot about the National Review and Firing Line.

As the decades passed, Buckley’s establishment ties only became more visible. In 1965 he attempted to join the Council on Foreign Relations, but was rebuffed by unknown members. That same year he started a campaign to boot the John Birch Society out of the conservative movement. The John Birch Society always has been an extremist Christian conservative group, and was an early conspiracy disinformation pusher. So much is clear from its February 1962 article Marxmanship in Dallas, in which the case was made that Oswald was a Soviet agent assigned to kill JFK. How convenient for the ever-pro-war faction in the CIA and American Security Council allies. It appears that this is not the main reason for Buckley’s dislike of the Society, however, but really that there was too much truth in the Society’s teachings. They were relentlessly attacking the Rockefellers, the Council on Foreign Relations and Bilderberg, later to be joined by the Trilateral Commission. While things turned silly by calling the Eastern Establishment “communist” day in, day out, in the end they were not entirely wrong that the Rockefellers did allow technology transfers to the Soviet Union – as discussed by Hoover Institution fellow Anthony Sutton. They were also not wrong that there is a very strong open borders and one-world-government agenda in place surrounding the Rockefellers. If one can put the John Birch Society’s teachings in perspective, they actually are extremely useful to the average, unaware person. In any case, Buckley wanted nothing to do with it. He was seeking to join the elites the John Birch Society was deriding.

Likely in part because of his strong disavowal of the John Birch Society, Buckley was able to join the Council on Foreign Relations in 1973, at that point chaired by none other than David Rockefeller himself. Two years later he received an invitation to Bilderberg, whose most important and most long-term leader from the 1950s to the 2000s was David Rockefeller. He again was invited to Bilderberg in 1996, still as a representative of the National Review. Being staunch, wealthy Catholics, at some point Buckley and his brother James were invited to the elite Knights of Malta, notorious for its close partnership with the CIA. At the turn of the century, Buckley was to be found on one of the boards of Conrad Black’s super-elite Hollinger Group, along with the likes of Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Paul Volcker, Gianni Agnelli, Lord Jacob and Sir Evelyn de Rothschilds, and more openly-known neocon elites such as Richard Perle (and Black himself).

Looking at all these CIA and liberal elite ties of William Buckley, Jr. throughout his lifetime, isn’t it odd that he continues to be revered in conservative corners? Even the Council for National Policy, with its historic John Birch Society ties and more recent Alex Jones and Donald Trump ties, has a dedicated “William F. Buckley Jr. Council”.

Of course, what we’re observing here is part of a familiar pattern. Both the John Birch Society and the pro-Nazi Liberty Lobby – the go-to watch dogs of the Eastern Establishment during the Cold War – received backing from elements involved in the American Security Council and the Western Goals Foundation. In fact, the John Birch Society’s second president, Congressman Larry McDonald, was on the board of Western Goals, alongside the likes of Trump family ally Roy Cohn, and also was part of an American Enterprise Institute telecast of the 1976, which equally featured elites as Samuel Huntington, Melvin Laird, Paul Unitize and Jack Kemp.

It all comes down to analyzing what society wants and needs – and then handing it a controlled, diluted, perverted version of it.

Liberal-socialism is amazing

Before writing anything on libertarianism and neoliberalism here, it might be pertinent to mention that this author is from the Netherlands; not the U.S. Hence, there is a bit of a different perspective here. Similar to all other North-West European countries, post-World War II baby-boomers and their children have been living in liberal-socialist paradises. Third World immigration, with its massive crime numbers, is changing the situation, but for the longest time countries as the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Germany have enjoyed:

The good parts of the Netherlands: disappearing all the time.
  • national debts around 30-60% of GDP, very comparable to the U.S. until the U.S. entered the “War on Terror” (above 100% now);
  • about 150-200% the effective U.S. minimum wage, looking at absolute numbers and living expenses; arguably 300% with expensive states as California;
  • 36 to 40 hours per week as a maximum;
  • experiments now with 6-hour work days with same pay (productivity has gone up, according to early experiments);
  • 4 weeks of vacation per year, apart from holidays;
  • no problems with going on vacation 3 or 4 weeks at once;
  • investment profits up to $125,000 not taxed (at least a decade ago; not sure now);
  • crypto-profits at infinity taxed about 1% per year;
  • strong social security;
  • strong, uncorrupted labor unions (no Italian or Jewish mafias running them);
  • low-cost government-issued medicare for all (huge bureaucratic waste and high prices now – despite/actually since 2003 privatization);
  • virtually zero police abuse (in fact, in the Netherlands they are next to useless, left the streets, don’t show up for anything involving loud music, barking dogs, etc., don’t fine for this; and are harassed by immigrants);
  • no doctor-prescribed, pain pill-popping culture;
  • great public schooling (non-immigrant-dominated schools still are);
  • free college in some countries;
  • no above-ground power, telephone, or internet lines;
  • high quality road system, both for cars and bicycles;
  • great public transportation: buses, trams, metros, trains;
  • high-quality, UV-filtered tap water (no chlorine or fluoride);
  • very effective gun control (you can get a gun if you want to hunt);
  • no corporate marijuana, etc. drug tests;
  • legalization or semi legalization of weed (smells!), shrooms, Salvia, Ibogaine and more;
  • no out-of-control commercialism, such as 7 minute commercials just to watch the last minute of a miniseries, or commercial breaks every 5 minutes;
  • no homeless people sleeping in the streets;
  • little (black, etc.) ghetto-forming or – traditionally – blacks having their own “subculture”, including (lack of proper) speech;
  • no black minority humorously race-baiting the white majority in comedy TV specials;
  • little race-baiting overall, although cultures have always isolated themselves from each other.

The cost of having these benefits is higher taxes for the middle and upper classes than you see in the United States. For the Netherlands this is roughly 50% for the highest bracket versus 37% for the lowest. Although… going over the numbers, it actually turns out that pretend-“populist” prime minister Mark Rutte has been pushing the highest bracket down (from 52%), and the lowest bracket up (from 36%). Looking deeper, similar to more serious anti-immigration “populists”, Mark Rutte and his VVD have a long-standing neoliberal heritage in line with the Mont Pelerin Society and Friedrich von Hayek. This seems to be just one of these elite schemes to force people to accept Third World immigrants: moderate liberal-socialism apparently is not allowed to co-exist alongside anti-immigration.

Anyway, going back to how things are/were, looking at the fact that the Netherlands, Canada and Scandinavia have topped the World Happiness Index for decades at this point, it’s hard to make the case that “socialism” doesn’t work. They are actually a little ahead of the United States. Despite that, many U.S. citizens do not seem to have a grasp of the word “socialism” at all. Just the other week I was listening to a Joe Rogan podcast – forgot which one – and heard Rogan – by no means a right-winger – saying something along the lines as, “Yeah, socialism just never really worked anywhere.” Okay, how about North-West Europe? How about Canada? Those countries are very socialist and have been going strong for a good number of decades. In fact, they have been liberal-socialist, which means “free market” with rules in place to shave off some of the sharp edges of the capitalist system. In that sense, the United States is “socialist” too, just a little less.

The problem here seems to be America’s conservative movement has been demonizing anything to the left of corporatism, neoliberalism and libertarianism. Just because John Birchers, Fox News and the Chicago School of economists often say so, doesn’t mean that liberals and socialists actually are “communists” and “collectivists”. The Soviet Union, China and Cuba were communist/collectivist countries. Even by cutting defense spending, these economies indeed did not work. But moderately socialist countries in ethnically stable, high IQ societies, as found historically in North-West Europe, have worked enormously well.

In the end, socialism is nothing more than employers, employees and the government looking to find common ground and establishing certain base rights, especially for employees. This is amazing – because if it is done right, you develop a large, happy, stable middle class that consumes and develops a dynamic culture that pushes society forward. Social security, a minimum wage, a maximum amount of working hours, a police force protecting you from criminals, a government taking care of public transport, etc. are all examples of socialism. Also, for example, a government having experts looking into the music industry and, by law, making sure that artists receive a certain percentage of profits, or can’t be locked into 5 album deals before they have even released their first, would be an example of socialism – and also one much needed in the United States in particular in past decades.

I feel silly for even writing this section. This basic lecture on socialism is quite literally what I learned in high school. Everybody knows this, right? Right? Then why don’t so many Americans?

Hayek and Milton Friedman’s neoliberalism

Studying the conservative movement, it doesn’t take long to observe that it is less versatile than its “liberal CIA” counterpart. In fact, it really hasn’t evolved much since Buckley wrote God and Man at Yale in 1952, criticizing socialism, Keynesianism, and the removal of God from academics. It’s basically a religious, militaristic and economic movement. The Christian conservatives primarily represent the first two; the Zionists and neocons the latter. Labor rights, the environment, online privacy – these are all issues “conservative CIA” foundations haven’t been pumping a whole lot of money in to put it mildly. As for neocon and Christian conservative economics: it all comes down to neoliberalism and libertarianism, which comes down to giving free reign to monopolies and cartels.

Without spending another year studying all the nuances, neoliberalism is basically one strand of libertarianism – and in practice all of them are unbelievably shortsighted and selfish economic practices. That makes sense, because they are particularly useful for elites to plunder the economy through cartel- and monopoly-forming, and suck the life out of the lower and middle classes. Milton Friedman, both a neoliberal and Libertarian, loved “full deregulation”, to the point of scrapping building codes, worker safety laws, maximum work hours, minimum wages and seemingly also child labor and education laws – sooner or later putting us back in the time of the Industrial Revolution. Other libertarians, including many associated with the conspiracy community, have been campaigning for the abolishment of the IRS. This would get rid of government as a whole, and give full power not to the masses and a “free market”, but to the existing mega-corporations and banks. In fact, it will lead to the total disintegration of western society: no more public roads, no more army, no more police – except for those privately set up by the mega-corporations and banks. It will be total anarchy.

Quite possibly the major problem with neoliberalism and libertarianism is trying to figure where the practice is differing from the preaching. It should be clear that the networks we are dealing with are extremely manipulative. The usual battle cries are “liberalism”, “freedom”, “personal freedom”, “free markets” and “small governments”. But libertarians and neoliberal really never seem to refer to anything “social” – the worst word imaginable – in these instances. Semi-secretly, they use these buzzwords to denote “no rules”: no minimum wage, no workplace safety rules, little to no taxes, no restraints on quashing labor unions or upcoming rivals by any means necessary, no limits on financial speculation, cartel-forming or monopolies, etc. The rich stay rich, the poor remain poor. Simple as that.

The Road to Serfdom
The Road to Serfdom indeed – except not through communism, but through unrestrained capitalism.

Neoliberalism itself started out as a lie. It was first written down in book form by Austrian economist Friedrich von Hayek in his 1945 book The Road to Serfdom. A condensed version of the book was published by the ultraright leadership of Reader’s Digest, associated with anything from pre-World War II Nazi promotion, to the American Security Council and the American Enterprise Institute. Later this condensed version was also distributed by General Motors, one of the largest investors in pre-World War II Nazi Germany alongside Du Pont, IBM, Wall Street banks and London counterparts as Lazard Brothers – all in an effort to make maximum profit and keep the anti-corporate communists out of Europe. Almost hilariously, the book and the condensed version tried to make the claim that Hitler and fascism were creations of the “socialists”, “collectivists” and “communists”:

“Long before the Nazis, too, the German and Italian socialists were using techniques of which the Nazis and fascists later made effective use. The idea of a political party which embraces all activities of the individual from the cradle to the grave, which claims to guide his views on everything, was first put into practice by the socialists. It was not the fascists but the socialists who began to collect children at the tenderest age into political organization to direct their thinking…

“It was the socialists who first insisted that the party member should distinguish himself from others by the modes of greeting and the forms of address. It was they who, by their organization of ‘cells’ and devices for the permanent supervision of private life, created the prototype of the totalitarian party. By the time Hitler came to power, liberalism was dead in Germany. And it was socialism that had killed it. To many who have watched the transition from socialism to fascism at close quarters the connection between the two systems has become increasingly obvious, but in the democracies the majority of people still believe that socialism and freedom can be combined. They do not realize that democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable, but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. It is disquieting to see in England and the United States today the same drawing together of forces and nearly the same contempt of all that is liberal in the old sense…

“Totalitarianism is the new word we have adopted to describe the unexpected but nevertheless inseparable manifestations of what in theory we call socialism.”

Looking at North-West Europe and Canada in particular and how they evolved from when Hayek’s book was written until roughly the turn of the century, these words of Hayek come across as rather ridiculous. Hayek actually confirmed his love for colonialist-fascist regimes in a July 11, 1978 letter he wrote to the London Times:

“In Modern times there have of course been many instances of authoritarian governments under which personal liberty was safer than under democracies. I have never heard anything to the contrary of the early years of Dr Salazar’s early government in Portugal…

“I have not been able to find a single person even in much maligned Chile who did not agree that personal freedom was much greater under Pinochet than it had been under Allende.”

“Personal freedom”? What is Hayek talking about? Salazar was a pro-colonialist fascist whose Portugal was ran by banking and corporate monopolies. Pinochet was murdering left-wing political opponents by the thousands, tortured tens of thousands and had roughly 100,000 political prisoners locked up in concentration camps throughout the country. So what is Hayek talking about with his go-to phrase “personal freedom”? At the very least he could have said “economic freedom”, although even that is questionable because a dictatorship is unlikely to allow the rise of economic interests that will work against it. It generally prefers cartels and monopolies that dominate the economy and work with the security services. This was also the case in Chile.

Fascinating is that Hayek’s close friend for about two decades at that point, Milton Friedman, was closely tied to the 1973 Chilean coup. The so-called Chilean “Chicago boys” – tied from anything to the World Bank and the Rockefeller Foundation to CIA-penetrated social clubs and newspapers – were the ones who introduced neoliberal “shock therapy” in Chile under Pinochet. These were mostly taught by Friedman and a leading assistant of his, Dr. Arnold Harberger, at the University of Chicago’s economists department.

We leave the details of the Chilean adventure to a separate section, but one only has to look at a few random comments of Milton Friedman to get a similar sense of the extremism of traditional neoliberalism as one gets from Hayek. The idea of a “free market” being more effective than a government in many respects is widely accepted. But Friedman too was more of a corporate monopolist – most likely explaining why, similar to Hayek, he took his Nobel prize-winning “free market” theory to its ultimate, almost purely philosophical, extreme – and then sugar-coated it with veiled explanations and words as “liberty” and “freedom”. For example, already in 1970, three years before the Chile coup, Friedman wrote an article for the New York Times that today is often referred to as the “Friedman Doctrine”. It absolved corporations from any and all “social responsibility”: from the environment to their employees’ working conditions, with managers and their employees only having one purpose: maximizing profit for the shareholders of the company:

“The businessmen believe that they are defending free enterprise when they declaim that business is not concerned “merely” with profit but also with promoting desirable “social” ends; that business has a “social conscience” and takes seriously its responsibilities for providing employment, eliminating discrimination, avoiding pollution and whatever else may be the catchwords of the contemporary crop of reformers. In fact they are … preaching pure and unadulterated socialism [and] undermining the basis of a free society… Insofar as his actions in accord with his “social responsibility” reduce returns to stockholders, he is spending their money.”

Clearly Friedman and many of his Chicago School allies have been dead-serious about the issue of zero corporate responsibility in the corporate domain. It’s just pure social Darwinism. It also appears that Friedman never changed his views by much. During a 1991 interview with the Federal Reserve of Minneapolis, he stated:

“Tyranny, restrictions on human freedom, come primarily from governmental institutions that we ourselves set up. … Similarly, building codes [preventing them from collapsing] impose costs that you might not privately want to engage in, [minimum] wage and [maximum] hour laws—and on and on.”

This type of thinking, while it has its merits, is just shocking in its primitivity. It’s a type of thinking that hasn’t really had a place anymore in the West, apart from conservative and libertarian Republican circles in the United States. Then, upon realizing how much of a fan Friedman was of Senator Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, and things start to make sense again.

Very important to mention, though, is that this type of “right-wing”, “conservative” thinking is being introduced again by anti-immigration “populists” in western Europe. All of a sudden the environment and the reality of CO2 increases in the atmosphere are “out” again with this new breed of “populist” leaders. This development appears to be part of a concerted effort to split public opinion into very radical camps. The reader does have to kind of keep in mind that this may have been the purpose of the start with neoliberal extremists as Hayek and Friedman, just by looking at their elite ties and propagandist wording that they’ve used throughout their career to sell their theories. They might just be “conservative CIA”.

Milton Friedman’s ideas became the dominant economic thought at the World Bank and IMF under the Reagan years.

Elite ties of Hayek and Friedman: Rockefeller, Shultz

At this point, it might be interesting to look a little deeper into whether or not Hayek and Friedman had any elite ties. For right-wing extremists to become so famous that they continue to be part of respectable mainstream narrative and global World Bank and IMF policy, that generally doesn’t happen by accident.

Lo and behold, going all the way back, in 1930 the Austrian Business Cycle Institute of Friedrich von Hayek and fellow “Austrian School” (libertarian) economist Ludwig von Mises received a five-year Rockefeller Foundation grant. A year later, Hayek went to work at the London School of Economics and Political Science, whose economics department was much more conservative than the rest of the school – which had been founded in 1895 by the Stalin and Hitler-admiring faction of the elite-tied Fabian Society. Together with the Rockefeller-founded Chicago University and the Rockefeller-financed “Austrian School” of Mises and Hayek, the LSI, which also was Rockefeller-financed (producing, for example, CIA-tied African nationalist Jomo Kenyatta), served as the leading international opposition force to the emerging Keynesian method.

To explain, when the Great Depression of 1929-1939 hit, the U.S., Japan and other countries increasingly switched to Keynesian economics. This came down to temporary government deficit spending and other interventionist measures to either continue or re-ignite the economy. It worked for Japan. It somewhat worked for the United States – although nothing brought back fate in the economy as the preparation for World War II. With the Keynesian system it all comes down to when and how severe the government intervention is in the economy, whether or not one can speak of “socialism” or “communism”. If the intervention is too soon, too severe, or not well-thought out, then arguably the government might indeed be supporting businesses that really have no business of existing anymore. They should be allowed to collapse, with more efficient corporations taking over. Generally, the neoliberal / libertarian / Chicago School of thought presents the opposite extreme, one with absolutely zero intervention, or even oversight, by the government. Without a doubt, many of these economists would even have protested the successful $15 billion stock buying spree of Beijing and Hong Kong in 1998 to protect their economies from a shorting attack by George Soros, who earlier had ruined the Thai and Malaysian economies. Clearly, government intervention is not all black and white. Unfortunately, it is often presented as such.

By 1937 Hayek was tutoring David Rockefeller on economics at the London School of Economics, most likely per the wishes of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. In his biography, Rockefeller explains that Lionel Robbins was his favorite economics teacher. Based on the recommendations of Robbins and Hayek, he ended up continuing his studies at the Rockefeller-founded University of Chicago, another rare neoliberal bastion, containing George Stigler and other well-known economics professors. Milton Friedman came to the University of Chicago in 1946. Hayek arrived in 1950, but was paid by an outside foundation.

More important names were to be found at the Chicago School. The Rockefeller Foundation-financed economist D. Gale Johnson arrived in the mid 1940s and ended up as chairman of the economics department in 1971-1975 and 1980-1984. It is in this latter period that Johnson joined David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission and also came to serve a leading role in the (then) Rockefeller-linked and later neocon-dominated American Enterprise Institute, along with a number of other Chicago School economists. In fact, AEI neocons as Dick Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz formed a lasting alliance with Chicago School economists as Johnson and Thomas Sowell, which is still going on during the present War on Terror era, with the notorious Project for the New American Century essentially being a 1997 AEI offshoot.

Nov. 2002: George Shultz singing for Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago where they celebrated Friedman’s 90th birthday.

It should also not exactly be overlooked that in 1957 a certain George Shultz came to the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business. Initially just an economics professor, from 1962 to 1968 Shultz served as dean of the school, forming a close, lasting friendship with Milton Friedman and other economists. Shultz, a top superclass member with close ties to Kissinger and David Rockefeller for many decades, joined the Nixon campaign and then the administration itself as an economic advisor. From 1972 to 1974 he served as Nixon’s Secretary of the Treasury.

This is an interesting period, because it was during this timeframe that Nixon; secretary of state, national security advisor and 40 Committee chair Henry Kissinger; and CIA director Richard Helms not only were “squeezing” the Chilean economy under the Marxist-socialist Salvador Allende, but actually massively infiltrated the country, making possible the September 1973 coup of the fascist dictator Augusto Pinochet. As already mentioned in the Pilgrims Society chapter Early CIA ties, the “Company” and corporate coups, David Rockefeller, aided by his direct access to Kissinger and Helms, played a key role in the corporate push for the coup, in no small part through his Americas Society. By 1975, 1.5 years after the coup, a group of “Chicago Boys”, educated at Shultz and Friedman’s University of Chicago through grants from USAID and the Rockefeller Foundation, introduced harsh neoliberal economic policies in Chile with the approval of Pinochet. Nixon advisor Friedman personally taught some of these individuals and went on a brief tour of Chile in March 1975, meeting with Pinochet. It’s a fascinating set of coincidences.

Friedman, Nixon, and Friedman mentor Arthur Burns. Like Burns, other Nixon administration officials, such as Henry Kissinger and close Friedman friend George Shultz, belonged to the Pilgrims Society, along with generations of Rockefellers.

Shultz and Friedman played leading roles in the “Nixon Shock”: the 1971 decision to take the U.S. dollar off the gold standard, making it impossible for foreign countries to swap their dollars for gold. A person with name Arthur R. Burns, chairman of the Federal Reserve System from 1970 to 1978 under Nixon, Ford and Carter, also played a role in this decision. Burns was Friedman’s leading mentor. In 1932, at age 20, Friedman was picked up at Rutgers University by Burns, a visiting professor from Columbia University who was 8 years his senior. Throughout the rest of his career, Burns remained his primary patron. In 1937, Burns brought Friedman onboard as a fellow-staffer at the National Bureau of Economic Research, a very elite body already financed at the time by the Rockefeller Foundation. In 1946 Friedman received his Ph.D. from Columbia University, being tutored, in part, by Burns. That same year Friedman received employment at the University of Chicago’s School of Economics, where certainly by the early 1960s, he became lifelong close friends with George Shultz.

Initially, in 1964, Friedman was an economic advisor to the failed campaign of American Security Council favorite Senator Barry Goldwater. Then, clearly under the tutelage of Burns and Shultz, he also became an advisor to Nixon, during which he and two dozen of his proteges became involved in the great neoliberal experiment that was Pinochet. Looking at all the ties Friedman had to American Security Council and Cercle Pinay favorites, support for a murderous dictator really is nothing unusual at all. In fact, it has been the norm in these networks. It also was the norm with Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, both of whom Friedman also advised. However, the fact remains that Friedman and his social Darwinist neoliberal economic theories simply have been propped up by the right-wing of the Rockefeller establishment.

In any case, it should be clear that the neoliberal “Chicago School” of economic thought – which included Friedman, Hayek, Burns, Trilateralist George Shultz, Trilateralist D. Gale Johnson, to a degree Trilateral Commission founder David Rockefeller, and additional names as Thomas Sowell of the AEI – has been closely linked to the Rockefeller interests, as were its London School of Economics and “Austrian School” allies.

The neoliberal and libertarian Mont Pelerin conspiracy

This makes it all the more interesting that in 1947 Friedrich von Hayek, an old recipient of Rockefeller Foundation financing, established his secretive Mont Pelerin Society. Present at the initial meeting were many of the economists already discussed: Friedrich Hayek and Lionel Robbins of the Rockefeller-backed LSI, Milton Friedman of the Rockefeller-supported “Chicago School”, and Ludwig von Mises of the “Austrian School” – and once also a recipient of Rockefeller funds. A certain economist named Sir Antony Fisher – who by the 1960s was a Pilgrims Society member, along with generations of Rockefellers – was also present. Fisher contacted Hayek months after reading the condensed version of his Road to Serfdom (1945) – cited earlier – and became the most key conspirator of this whole group in a deliberate effort “to litter the world with free-market think-tanks”. Mont Pelerin offshoots include:

  • 1955: Institute for Economic Affairs, London: Founded by Antony Fisher.
  • 1964: Philadelphia Society: Described by Milton Friedman as a U.S. domestic branch of Mont Pelerin, which organized annual meetings all over the world.
  • 1974: Fraser Institute, Vancouver, Canada: Co-founded by Fisher.
  • 1976: Centre for Independent Studies in Sydney, Australia: Co-founded by Fisher.
  • 1977: Manhattan Institute in New York City: Founded by Fisher and future CIA director William Casey.
  • 1977: Adam Smith Institute, London. Founded by Madsen Pirie and brothers Eamonn and Stuart Butler. Eamonn Butler worked for Edwin Feulner at the Heritage Foundation since 1974. Feulner was co-founder and president of the Heritage Foundation, as well as a Knight of Malta and Cercle visitor. Stuart went to work as vice president of Heritage in 1978. In October 2016 the think tank changed its description of being “libertarian” to “neoliberal”.
  • 1978: Pacific Research Institute for Public Policy, San Francisco: Founded by Fisher. Anno 2019, Sally Pipes is president and CEO.
  • 1981: Atlas Economic Research Foundation / Atlas Network, Washington, D.C.: Founded by Fisher.
  • 1983: National Center for Policy Analysis, Dallas, Texas and later in Washington, D.C.: Founded by Fisher.
  • 1983: Centre for Research into Communist Economies, London: Project of Fisher’s IEA. Its 1988 conference put neoliberals as Hayek and Fisher in touch with soon-to-be key Russian-Zionist Yeltsin era “reformers” as Yegor Gaidar, Anatoly Chubais and Pyotr Aven. Reforming Russia through neoliberal “Shock Therapy” ended up in apocalyptic-scale looting.
  • 1984: Citizens for a Sound Economy (Tea Party): Founding financed by Mont Pelerin Society member Charles Koch. Ron Paul was its first chairman.
  • 2004: FreedomWorks (Tea Party): Outgrowth of CSE. Key founder and chair until 2012 was Mont Pelerin Society member Dick Armey.

These are only some of the most prominent Mont Pelerin Society offshoots. There are over a hundred more of such international think tanks, including a Chilean offshoot that introduced Pinochet to neoliberalism in the 1970s. It’s possible to find a lot of these offshoots simply by checking historical grants lists of “conservative CIA” foundations as Olin, Scaife, Bradley and Mercer. They have been financing all the above groups, plus a lot more. The Charles Koch Foundation plays a role too, but, certainly for its infamy, is not as dominant as one would expect.

The most important Mont Pelerin Society members around 2010-2011: George Shultz, Ed Meese, Ed Feulner and Otto von Habsburg.

Looking at a leaked 2010 list of the Mont Pelerin Society, the founding names were gone at that point. Despite that, it is still possible to find quite a few of the above institutes being represented. As for the important names here: Charles Koch, a leading libertarian “philanthropist”, has been a member since 1970. Superclass member Edwin Feulner joined the Mont Pelerin Society in 1972 and has alternately been president, vice president and treasurer over the decades. Madsen Pirie and Eamonn Butler of the Adam Smith Institute respectively joined in 1976 and 1984. Sally Pipes of PRIPC was invited in 1986. Dr. William Sumner, a co-founder and 20-year chair of the Atlas Network, became a member in 1998. Dick Armey, a Tea Party leader from 2004 on, also joined in 1998.

The Mont Pelerin Society features very few of the traditional superclass members. The only really major names on the 2010 list are Edwin Feulner, Friedman’s long-time ally George Shultz, and Otto von Habsburg. Edwin Meese III and maybe Lord Howe also are not insignificant. Feulner and Meese are top leaders of the Christian Conservative movement. Both can be found at the Heritage Foundation and the Council for National Policy. Dick Armey used to be a member of the CNP as well. Lord Howe, formerly Margaret Thatcher’s private secretary, ended up becoming a Pilgrims Society executive and J.P. Morgan director.

George Shultz has always been considered an odd bird by ISGP, because among top liberal elitists close to David Rockefeller, over the decades he might have been the most comfortable appearing in NGOs with a strong pro-Israel Jewish neocon bend. Kissinger, Haig, Brzezinski, John Whitehead have done it as well to an extent, but there really aren’t that many elitists who are both active in nuclear weapons disarmament schemes, while at the same time hanging out with generally very pro-(nuclear) war Jewish neocons. The long-time involvement of Shultz in the Mont Pelerin Society is just one more example of him crossing establishment lines.

Along with Shultz and Feulner, Otto von Habsburg is the most noteworthy name in the 2010 Mont Pelerin Society membership list. Habsburg joined all the way back in 1960, indicating he started attending meetings in the late 1950s. Habsburg was the key behind-the-scenes founder of the super-secretive Cercle Pinay group in the 1953. It started out as a Europe-wide Opus Dei-tied operation to turn the emerging European Union as much as possible into a new Holy Roman Empire. In the late 1960s Le Cercle started making overtures to David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger, who considered the group a bit too “reactionary”. By the mid 1970s, leading CIA and MI6 officers started taking over leadership of Le Cercle, most notably the notorious Ted Shackley and friends. Le Cercle was deeply tied to all the most sensitive conspiracies, from drug trafficking to the Strategy of Tension, and dominated by the intelligence services. That’s the network that Otto von Habsburg founded and was part of. Hence, it is quite relevant that this individuals appears to have been attending Mont Pelerin Society meetings since the late 1950s – as it has traditionally been a requirement that prospective members attend two or more meetings.

UK and Dutch neoliberalism and populism: Mont Pelerin?

Looking at the very systematic approach in which Mont Pelerin Society founders have been setting up more than one-hundred neoliberal and libertarian think tanks in countries around the world, and one is tempted to think that a conspiracy is afoot here. The fact that Otto von Habsburg, the founder of the CIA- and MI6-riddled Cercle Pinay, has been an official member from 1960 until his death in 2011, or that close David Rockefeller ally and long-time Bechtel leader George Shultz has been a member since 1978, or that co-founder Milton Friedman – Shultz’s close friend – was so closely tied to the Pinochet coup, all take us a little in that direction as well.

Personally, just right now, this author is starting to realize the influence of the Mont Pelerin network over here in the Netherlands. Prime minister of the Netherlands since 2010 is Mark Rutte, head of the VVD party (Folk Party for Freedom and Democracy). Turns out, the VVD was founded in January 1948, months after the creation of the Mont Pelerin Society, its founding principles strongly based on Hayek’s neoliberal theories (direct ties with Mont Pelerin are unknown). It has continued to be a neoliberal parties for all these decades, with this author not really becoming aware until seeing how VVD prime minister and pretend “populist” Mark Rutte has lowered the taxes for the highest income bracket and upped them for the lowest. Soon after, it turned out that Rutte has a lot of affection for the likes of Friedrich Hayek and Ayn Rand. At the same time he and the to-be-discussed Frits Bolkestein deny that something as “neoliberal” economic theory exists, claiming its an invention of the left. It must be said though that wholesale deregulation as prescribed by Hayek and Friedman is unlikely to be introduced here, but you can see that the VVD is clearly, and a little covertly, leaning towards the upper class of society.

Fascinatingly enough, anti-immigration “populist” candidates in the Netherlands also lean heavily on neoliberal economic thought and often are a spin-off of the VVD. From the late 1980s until the early 2000s, leading light of the VVD was Frits Bolkestein. A former Shell manager stationed all around the world, Bolkestein entered politics in the late 1970s. A decade later he served as minister of defense under Ruud Lubbers, a first-rate open borders Rockefeller globalist who later went to work for George Soros’ International Crisis Group – as would his successor, Wim Kok. Bolkestein was a Bilderberg regular in the 1996-2004 period, a member of the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA / Chatham House) in London, and, most secret of all, one of maybe 3 or 4 Dutch Mont Pelerin Society members, certainly in the 1990s. In that period, Bolkestein basically was the first prominent politician to oppose Muslim immigration. Fascinatingly, but 2004 he was brought on board as an advisor by Bank Menatep of questionable Russian-Zionist oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a very close ally at the time of Jacob Rothschild, Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski in the Open Russia Foundation and the International Crisis Group of George Soros.

Leading anti-immigration “populists” of the Netherlands: Frits Bolkestein (Bilderberg, RIIA, Mont Pelerin Society, and Zionist oligarch ties) and leading protege Geert Wilders (secretly funded by U.S. “conservative CIA” and Zionist NGOs).

The still very unknown Geert Wilders, Holland’s leading anti-Muslim “populist” candidate from 2006 to 2018, was a low-level protege of Bolkestein in the 1990s – and over the years quietly received key funding through the Jewish neocon David Horowitz Freedom Center and the Middle East Forum, which in turn are financed by “conservative CIA” foundations as Scaife and Bradley. His political campaigns were also pushed by the CIA (director) and Mossad-dominated Intelligence Summit, one of the more bizarre elite NGOs to ever emerge. Like all other populists, Wilders doesn’t focus on rationally bringing up ethnic crime numbers, racial IQ, or immigration-related poll statistics. For the most part he is just quiet and occasionally makes headlines with statements as “less Moroccans!” It’s not productive and strongly plays into the “Islamophobia” and (irrational) “xenophobia” narrative that the dominant liberal establishment likes to push.

Earlier, in 2002, an ally of Dutch anti-immigration “populist” Pim Fortuyn, a certain Eduard Bomhoff, also used to be a friend and ally of Bolkestein in the early 1990s (today, strangely, Bomhoff thinks Bolkestein “spreads fear” about Muslim immigration). This was in the same period that Bomhoff joined the Mont Pelerin Society. By the 2010s, Bomhoff was one of only two Dutch Mont Pelerin Society members, with just one online-available Dutch news article identifying Bomhoff as such. Similarly, only one indisputable online-available source exists that Bolkestein ever was a member of the Mont Pelerin Society. It’s all a bit overly coincidental and small-circle.

The tie between pro-open borders neoliberalism and anti-immigration “populism” certainly seems to be strong. In the Netherlands we also had Fortuyn and Wilders ally Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Dutch Somali who fled the country in 2004 after the Muslim who butchered Pim Fortuyn-ally Theo van Gogh also threatened Ali (with a note stuck on Von Gogh’s chest with a knife). In no-time she found employment at the neocon American Enterprise Institute, became a CFR member and Hoover Institution fellow, married leading superclass member Niall Ferguson, attended Rothschild birthday parties, and eventually, in 2010, also was made a member of the Mont Pelerin Society. One wonders, how does something like that happen? Also when you look at the Dutch intelligence ties of Van Gogh’s father, or other strangeness surrounding this person, you just get a very strong sense of things being “scripted”. If anybody gives off the “Illuminati bride” vibe, it’s Ali.

With Holland’s newest “populist”, Thierry Baudet, it probably is only a matter of time before elite ties pop up. The “scientific bureau” attached to his Forum for Democracy, the Renaissance Institute, already is copying the David Horowitz Freedom Center in particular with its latest hotline to “turn in your leftist teacher”. This is a very, very clear move of splitting the Netherlands between the “left” and the “right” in exactly the same fashion as the United States. Chairman of the bureau is arch-atheist Paul Cliteur, formerly of the Bilderberg and Pim Fortuyn-tied Republican Society. Extremist opinions surrounding immigration, feminism, left versus right, atheism versus religion: it’s all meant to divide… and conquer.

Fascinating to see also was that Britain’s infamous anti-immigration congressman of the 1960s and 1970s, Enoch Powell, not only was among the country’s leading neoliberals, he also was a visitor of the Mont Pelerin Society (until an anti-Semitic freak-out at the 1972 conference) and a major promoter of the Society’s neoliberal economic policies in Britain. It was only a matter of time though, for this “coincidence” popped up. I only learned about Enoch Powell and his semi-prophetic “Rivers of Blood” speech about 6 months ago, while writing ISGP’s Hollywood article. At the time I was scratching my head why I couldn’t find any unusual establishment ties to Powell. Well, here they are.

ISGP already discussed the ties between anti-immigration “populists” and national security in ISGP’s Cercle Pinay article. Certainly looking at Otto von Habsburg, the Mont Pelerin Society almost can be considered the economic counterpart to Le Cercle and the American Security Council. It represents the sugar-coated fascist-colonialist plundering of so many of the regimes that Cercle and American Security Council members have supported.

Donald Trump, the CNP and “conservative CIA”

In case of Donald Trump, he very strongly is a product of NGOs that are financed by “conservative CIA” foundations, including Bradley, Scaife and Mercer. He’s pro-Israel neoconservative, NGOs of which are financed by said foundations. He’s Christian Conservative (this time around), NGOs of which are financed by said foundations. Very uniquely, he’s also an anti-immigration “populist”, NGOs and media outlets are financed by said foundations. Also the conspiracy and Nazi networks he has trouble distancing himself from: all financed or tied in some way to individuals or NGOs financed by said foundations.

Where to even start? Key administration officials as secretaries of state, defense secretaries and national security advisors – namely Rex Tillerson, Jim Mattis, General Mike Flynn and John Bolton – have demonstrated ties to the Hoover Institution, American Enterprise Institute and other elements of the pro-Israel neocon network, complete with recommendations from Bush era administration officials. Trump CIA director and secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, has less of these ties it appears, but does have a long history with the “conservative CIA” Koch brothers, not to mention defense industry giants as Lockheed and Raytheon.

Most important to mention here though is that literally the only media support Trump has been enjoying is “conservative CIA”, from Fox News to Breitbart and Infowars. This network is responsible for the 5 percent “positive news” received by the entirety of the media in 2017, compared to 22% for the vastly more destructive (for now) Bush administration, or a whopping 42% for media darling Obama. In addition, Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway, both backed by the Mercer Family Foundation, ran Trump’s presidential campaign in its final two months. Bannon and Conway both were Council for National Policy, with the Mercers being the CNP’s largest donors in the pre-Trump era. In addition, Bannon was chairman of Breitbart, backed by Mercer, and Conway was to be found at the anti-feminist Independent Women’s Forum, financed by Bradley, Scaife, Koch, Randolph and other “conservative CIA” foundations. Trump’s education secretary, Betsy DeVos, a sister of Erik Prince, the founder of CIA front firm Blackwater, comes from the exact same CNP network. Both sides of the DeVos-Prince family have included CNP leaders.

His controversial (anti-)immigration positions Trump is said to take from the Center for Immigration Studies, financed by Bradley and Scaife. Comparing it to ISGP’s Center for Responsible Immigration, the CIS doesn’t seem to do a whole lot of practical, in-depth studying though. Along similar lines, Scaife used to finance the Diversity Alliance for a Sustainable America / Alliance for a Sustainable USA. It was just a ridiculously low-quality endeavor, hardly more than a few semi-prominent names and a crappy website with a few basic statements.

Also looking at how Trump, similar to all other “populists” in the West, refuses to rationally bring up ethnic crime numbers, racial IQ, or immigration-related poll statistics – instead resorting to very occasional emotional rhetoric – also should make one wonder to what extent Trump and his Old Right / “alt right” following really are interested in stopping Third World immigration. Unlike the one of Viktor Orban in Hungary, for now it is not exactly like his wall is getting build, in the quickest way, for the lowest price – or that it will ever stop immigration. We really have to be prepared that all this ineffectiveness is by design.

We can go on. Trump and his father were supporters of Senator Barry Goldwater, a favorite of the American Security Council. Chief lawyer of the Trump family was Roy Cohn, a director of the Western Goals Foundation, which, similar to the American Security Council, ties back to a number of “conservative CIA” foundations, as well as corporations. Trump may not have looked like much of a conservative throughout the 1990s, 2000s and early 2010s, his family certainly does have a long-standing history tying back to this national networks. Also, in 2000, Trump was a political candidate of the Reform Party, founded by former presidential candidate Ross Perot, who loved to party at the OSS Society with retired CIA directors and the leadership of America’s special operations community. The Reform Party has been stacked with misfits of every kind over the years, from “liberal CIA” Ralph Nader to the AFIO’s Robert D. Steele.

More peculiarities surrounding Trump, including his penchant for conspiracy disinformation, is to be found in his point summary bio. However, the main point here is that all these anti-immigration and even pro-Nazi populists, and the small media and activism networks surrounding them, seem to be purposely split off from slightly more mainstream conservative and neoliberal groups for very specific purposes of controlled opposition and disinformation. It’s not like you find moderate liberal-socialist with anti-immigration opinions anywhere in the West really. One has to assume that this peculiarity, especially when looking at anti-immigration polls, is completely by design.

The “Rockefeller CIA” left-right paradigm

Initially, there wasn’t much of an interest here to create point summaries on a number of elite think tanks, the reason being that we already know that they are elite and propagandist. The purpose of this “conservative CIA” oversight is to identify media outlets and other supposedly grassroots organizations as having semi-clandestine “conservative CIA” foundation backing. Still, it can be useful to observe how “conservative CIA” foundations as Bradley, Scaife and Mercer fund both elite NGOs and supposedly “grassroots” NGOs, similar to how, for example, the Ford, Hewlett and Rockefeller Brothers Fund foundations used to finance the super-elite Trilateral Commission alongside “new left”, “grassroots”, “liberal CIA” protest groups and anti-establishment media outlets.

For this reason, I picked a number of elite think tanks that appear the most consistently in grant lists of “conservative CIA” foundations. The first I picked was the Hudson Institute, the second the American Enterprise Institute, and the third the Manhattan Institute. Then the Hoover Institution was added. To my own surprise, similar to the CFR, Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission, Asia Society, Dartmouth Conferences, US-USSR Trade and Economic Council and so many other “globalist” NGOs, Rockefeller influence has never been far away with these key conservative / neoconservative think tanks either. Added to the list below are a few other peculiarities, namely William Buckley, Jr. and foundation-tied ones that I had earlier picked up on.

  • The Hudson Institute was founded by Herman Kahn and RAND Corporation allies, but not without deep involvement of Nelson Rockefeller, whose house advisor Kahn became and who was just as excited about spending a massive $20 billion ($170 billion in 2019) on building fallout shelters as Kahn himself.
  • The American Enterprise Institute was a key NGO revived in the late 1970s “neocon revolution”. Key AEI promoter and fundraiser in the late 1970s, when big business and “conservative CIA” foundations as Olin and Scaife were getting onboard, was Willard Carlisle Butcher, the president of Chase Manhattan Bank under chairman and CEO David Rockefeller. Butcher took over from Rockefeller as CEO in 1979, soon followed by chairman as well. In 1979, already a major AEI promoter, Willard became AEI’s chairman of corporation fund-raising; by the late 1980s he was serving as trustee chair of AEI. Mind you, the 1997-founded New Atlantic Initiative, dominated by hawkish neocons as Eastern Establishmentarians under Henry Kissinger, was an offshoot of the AEI. The Project for the New American Century, another hawkish neocon project founded that same year, also, in part, was an offshoot of the AEI, mainly through AEI senior vice president John Bolton. In the late 1990s, Dick Cheney was vice chair of the AEI, and came back after serving the full eight years as Bush’s vice president.
  • The Manhattan Institute was an offshoot of the Mont Pelerin Society, founded and maintained by a key network of neoliberal economists with considerable direct and indirect Rockefeller family ties – and more directly to Bechtel man George Shultz.
  • The Hoover Institution has been one of the homes of Milton Friedman for a long time. It represents the “conservative” establishment, but has very close ties to the Rockefeller interests through overseers and scholars as Stephen Bechtel, Jr., George Shultz and more recently Henry Kissinger. For the longest time, leading “conservative CIA” financier Richard Mellon Scaife was an overseer, after his death followed by Michael Gleba, the chair and CEO of the Sarah Scaife Foundation. The “conservative CIA” Mercer family, which brought Trump to power, joined as overseers in 2018. Earlier, William Buckley, Jr.’s brother, James, was an overseer. Thus, “conservative” and “conservative CIA” interests have been strongly represented for many years, but always right along the Rockefeller ones. Unlike the AEI, Jewish neocon scholars have not really been part of the Hoover Institution – which happens to be staunchly open borders – very explicitly for economic reasons.
  • William Buckley Jr., the founder of the National Review and arguably the most prominent leader of the conservative movement, had a family fortune based on the Rockefellers, in addition to joining the CFR under chairman David Rockefeller, Bilderberg under the de facto leadership of David Rockefeller and eventually the board of Hollinger, loaded with David Rockefeller friends as Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Paul Volcker and the Rothschilds, as well neocon elites as Richard Perle and Hollinger chief Conrad Black (Pilgrims Society). Buckley denounced the John Birch Society before joining the CFR. He and his brother James were Knights of Malta, with William having belonged to Skull & Bones. Quite possibly that is why he was such a supporter of the Bush family.
  • The key initial neocon foundations, Olin and Scaife, maintained huge Eastern Establishment ties. Olin, amongst others, through Rockefeller man John McCloy, formerly of the Rockefeller and Ford foundations (uber-“liberal CIA” Ford Fdn. also featured Steven Bechtel, Sr. 1961-1970); and Scaife through his relatives, the Mellons. The Rockefellers, Mellons and at least four Olin Foundation officers, including the founder, were members of the Pilgrims Society. In 1985 the Bradley Foundation became an outgrowth of the Olin Foundation through Michael S. Joyce.
  • A number of additional “conservative CIA” foundations had or have major Eastern Establishment ties. The Donner Foundation and Donner Canadian Foundation were closely tied to the David Rockefeller-founded Trilateral Commission since at least 1980. Similar to the Scaife foundations, these foundations too were/are based on the Eastern Establishment Mellon fortune. They mostly fund environmental and other more liberal establishment projects though.
  • The Achelis and Bodman Foundation has countless elite Pilgrims Society members on the board, but finances a group of neoconservative think tanks, including James Woolsey’s extremely neocon and extremely anti-immigrant Gatestone Institute.
  • The conservative Randolph Foundation merely is an offshoot, in family and as a foundation, of the H. Smith Richardson Foundation, over the decades linked to the CIA, DOD and a “conservative” foundation that has been making large donations to anything from the AEI and Hudson Institute to the Trilateral Commission, Brookings Institution, Peterson Institute, and CFR. Smith Richardson is a total Eastern Establishment foundation.
  • The neoliberal policies of the Rockefeller and Shultz-tied Milton Friedman were strongly adopted by the World Bank during the Reagan years. From 1999 on, the leading dissenter to Friedman and the World Bank policy to supposedly undress Third World countries with privatization and deregulation has been economist Joseph Stiglitz, who did so through prominent “liberal CIA” asset Greg Palast. Stiglitz, who spoke at “liberal CIA”-backed Occupy Wall Street, has become a superclass member who is a very close ally of George Soros and the Rockefeller clique through NGOs as the Institute for New Economic Thinking (Soros and David Rockelller-financed), Progressive Agenda (Jonathan Soros), Peterson Institute for International Economics (David Rockefeller, George Shultz, Conrad Black of Hollinger (included Friedman), Lynn Forester de Rothschild, Larry Summers and many other close Rockefeller allies), etc.

    Apparently reformed neoliberal “shock therapist” Jeffrey Sachs, who pioneered World Bank and IMF debt relief programs with Bolivia in 1985, also is deeply part of this Rockefeller-Soros network, as is a similarly Soros-allied protege of his, Nouriel Roubini. Sachs successfully helped reform the Polish economy, but he also was there with Hayek and Fisher liaising with the corrupt Russian-Zionist reformers under Yeltsin that handed all economic power to a small clique for bargain prices and utterly destroyed the country. Stiglitz blamed the rigidly of neoliberalism; Sachs et al blamed the corrupt oligarchs. Point is, Stiglitz is loved by the “liberal CIA” media and loathed by NGOs as “Chicago School”-dominant American Enterprise Institute. But it really doesn’t matter whether you go the neoliberal or Keynesian road: the biggest names in the field have been surrounded by the Rockefeller network.

You sit back and look at how this liberal and conservative NGO network was founded – and you can’t help but get the impression that the Rockefellers and their closest establishment friends, in coordination with the CIA, have been fielding think tanks and conferences with seemingly radically opposing views, yet always managed to keep key conspiracies as JFK and 9/11 under wraps, all the while pushing open borders. Free markets, free media, the voting process – it’s all a giant, multilayered sham. On the “liberal CIA” new left, Soros, the Ford Foundation, Warren Buffett and Bill Clinton have been strongly interlocked with David Rockefeller, and certainly the various “liberal CIA”-oriented Rockefeller foundations. However, David Rockefeller’s best friends have always been corporate coup plotters: CIA director Allen Dulles and Henry Kissinger are the most classic examples, with Richard Helms having been a good friend as well. The hawkish Zbigniew Brzezinski, with whom he founded the Trilateral Commission, was a close friend and has maintained a lot of ties to neocons over the years. George Shultz, whose chief protege is Bush era national security advisor and secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, definitely was a friend as well, from Shultz’s leadership position at the “Chicago School” in the early 1960s to the 2010s at the Peterson Institute. Apart from overlap through NGOs, the ties between Shultz, Kissinger, Rockefeller and James Woolsey still are a bit fuzzy to this author at this point. These ties are key in trying to understand the purpose of the Jewish neocons, who have major historic CIA and DOD ties.

Similar to the initial “liberal CIA” oversight, once again it has been Executive Intelligence Review as the only publication, conspiracy or otherwise, which managed to observe the exact same controlled opposition phenomenon. Here is a segment of an August 1977 article of the publication, which this author ran into while creating a point summary of the National Review:

“The Rockefellers’ goal, both at home and abroad, on the other hand, is looting, the destruction of industry and labor power to prop up their collapsing banks and financial interests. They use their “left-right” agents internationally to sabotage opposing policies. Such monetarist “surrogate warfare” pitting manipulated Papists versus manipulated anti-Papists … and, today, the Institute for Policy Studies and allied Social Democratic factions versus the Buckleys, has been the principle counter-revolutionary device used by monetarist banking forces to contain the development of humanism and maintain their empires.” [2]

As usual, I don’t agree with everything in the article, nor do I think it’s written in the most coherent fashion. But EIR is the only publication – and very early so – to occasionally have mentioned the nature of the grand controlled opposition conspiracy that we face in our modern society – and on top of that provide a number of key examples. Over the decades the “new left” Institute for Policy Studies, founded by former aides to McGeorge Bundy (Yale Skull & Bones, like Buckley; president Ford Foundation 1966-1979) and Rockefeller man John McCloy (chair Chase National Bank 1953-1960; chair CFR 1953-1970; chair Rockefeller Foundation 1946-1949, 1953-1958; chair Ford Foundation 1958-1964; trustee Olin Foundation late 1970s-1980s), has received millions from “liberal CIA” foundations as Ford, Rockefeller, Turner and Soros. While there are literally hundreds of important “new left” groups these days funded by the same network of “liberal CIA” foundations, the IPS definitely has been a very important player.

McCloy, of course, also sat on the board of the Pilgrims Society-dominated Olin Foundation, which initiated the “neocon revolution” in the late 1970s, not to a small degree in opposition to Carter’s (economic) “despotism”. This was much in the same way that the elite-embraced William Buckley, Jr. launched his conservative revolution in the early 1950s. As discussed in detail in ISGP’s intro article, the Rockefeller influence has been working through all Democrat and Republican administrations from Truman to Obama. The NGO and activism circuits do not seem to be much different. More research is needed though. But it does seem clear: we are being had. Big time.


Pinochet: murder, torture and neoliberalism in Chile

A number of readers might be interested in learning more about the link between Milton Friedman, the CIA and the Pinochet regime. Much controversy has surrounded this subject, and it most certainly has parallels with ISGP articles on the American Security Council and Le Cercle. It might be interesting to look at the subject of U.S. corporate coups from a purely economic standpoint, so let’s summarize this situation a bit.

In the late 1960s, right before the 1970 election that got the Marxist-socialist Salvador Allende in power, “284 enterprises controlled each and every one of the subdivisions of Chilean economic activities,” most of them owned by one or a handful of individuals. In addition, “51 percent of the largest 160 firms were effectively controlled by global corporations.” [1] Allende, with the support of the people, began a huge nationalization effort, in no small part because these businesses had been trying to undermine his elections. Nixon and Kissinger in Washington, alongside American big business, under the leadership of Americas Society founder David Rockefeller, were horrified. Crippling economic sanctions were leveled against Chile. And after the 1973 coup of Pinochet almost all of the nationalizations were undone.

March 21, 1975: Friedman with General Pinochet. This was during Friedman’s first week-long visit to Chile, when the Chilean “Chicago boys” fully implemented their “shock therapy”. It must be said that Friedman’s Mont Pelerin co-founder, Friedrich Hayek, was much more openly supportive of Pinochet.

Once in power, Pinochet appointed two economists, Raul Saez and Fernando Leniz, who attempted a slow transition back from Allende’s Marxist-socialist nationalizations to a market economy. A number of “Chicago Boys” served as their advisors, but that was about it. However, by March-April 1975, amidst continued hyperinflation problems, he elevated the “Chicago Boys” to the positions of economics and finance ministers, as well as head of the Chilean Central Bank. This group of “Chicago boys” had been fostered through the Instituto de Economia at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, created in the 1950s in partnership with the University of Chicago and the ever-present USAID. Roughly 25 such neoliberal economists were trained at the University of Chicago through this exchange program. [2] Looking at key names of the “Chicago boys” [3], we don’t just find the University of Chicago and tutors as Milton Friedman and key protege Arnold Harberger (married to a Chilean woman 1958-2011), we also find the Rockefeller Foundation paying for the exchange program [4], or individuals brought to the United States as Fulbright Scholars, or persons working for the World Bank in Washington, D.C. before and during the coup, or contributors to the CIA-penetrated El Mercurio newspaper, or members of the Cofradia Nautica del Pacifico Austral / Maritime Brotherhood of the Southern Pacific, a key social club where the coup was plotted and where “Chicago Boys” and allies oversaw the creation of the neoliberal economic blueprint “El Ladrillo” (1972). According to Orlando Leletier, formerly Allende’s right-hand, in a prominent August 1976 The Nation article, Pinochet and Friedman’s “Shock Therapy” came down to the following:

  • Import tariffs were canceled.
  • Nationalized businesses under Allende were given back to their oligarchical owners.
  • Many other businesses were auctioned off to domestic and foreign owners, often to business families that already owned large swaths of the economy.
  • Monopolistic businesses were not broken up and diversified whatsoever.
  • All financial regulations were removed.
  • Healthcare and social security were privatized.
  • Minimum wage and almost all other labor laws were done away with.
  • Labor/trade unions were banned, with Pinochet imprisoning, torturing and murdering any and all labor organizers. [5]

The question is how biased and truthful Leletier’s account was. Chile under Allende wasn’t doing as well as he claimed in the article. Fact is, the economy was slumping a bit under Allende, although it held up decently well in light of large-scale nationalizations, U.S. economic “squeezing”, and massive CIA-backed political infiltration and destabilization. [6] Certainly after the coup, Chile experienced a full-scale economic meltdown, with runaway inflation and hunger on a scale that the country had not experienced before. The question is: how much are the “Chicago boys” to blame for that?

First of all, there has been the “Chilean miracle”, a reference to the huge economic growth Chile went through in later years, especially in light of the rest of Latin America. Generally this economic boom is credited to the “Chicago boys” and used as evidence that full-scale neoliberal “shock therapy”, as devised by Friedman, works wonders. At the same time the “Chilean miracle” is meant to convey the message that “socialism”, communism and nationalizations are the work of the devil and don’t work. There’s been some contention here. Individuals on the left side – or “liberal CIA”, such The Nation – of the spectrum often argue that the economy crashed massively in the two years after the Pinochet coup, blaming the “Chicago boys” for this situation. They have also argued that the second catastrophic economic crash in Chile of 1982-1983 was caused by neoliberal speculation and cartel practices, that it resulted in the ouster of the “Chicago boys”, and that it wasn’t until 1988 – after 18 years! – that Chilean GDP had finally grown 10% over what it had been in 1970, at the start of the Allende presidency.

While it’s usually the right-wing that is doing the blatantly obvious manipulation, we really have to give “the left” some “credit” here as well. Also, as is not unusual, they are both too biased and extreme in their positions. First of all, while they did have ties to U.S. and domestic coup plotters, at least to a degree, the “Chicago boys” did not run the economy until 1.5 years after the coup: partly from July 1974 and fully from April 1975. Hence, they cannot be held responsible for the huge crash and hyperinflation after the coup. On the other hand, you also can’t blame the Marxist-socialist-inspired policies of Allende. Why? Because the U.S. devastated the Chilean economy the second Allende came in power in 1973. The Church Committee, in a 1975 report entitled Covert Action in Chile: 1963-1973, explained how the U.S. government purposely made Chile’s economy “scream”:

“The [CIA’s] “scare campaign” [of presidential candidate Allende becoming a new Stalin] contributed to the political polarization and financial panic of the period. Themes developed during the campaign were exploited even more intensely during the weeks following [the] September 4 [1970 election that Allende won], in an effort to cause enough financial panic and political instability to goad [former] President Frei [who lost] or the Chilean military [of Pinochet and allies] into action. …

“The United States cut off economic aid, denied credits, and made efforts–partially successful–to enlist the cooperation of international financial institutions [World Bank, IMF] and private firms [invested in Chile] in tightening the economic “squeeze” on Chile. … The combined effect of the foreign credit squeeze and domestic copper strikes [of workers now demanding 25-38% higher wages after nationalizations, with 32% increase putting Chile’s copper price at global levels] on Chile’s foreign exchange position was devastating. … The Allende government [lost the] ability to purchase replacement parts and machinery for the most critical sectors of the economy: copper, steel, electricity, petroleum, and transport. … By late 1972… almost one-third of diesel trucks at Chuquicamata Copper Mine, 30 percent of the privately owned city buses, 21 percent of all taxis, and 33 percent of state-owned buses in Chile could not operate because of the lack of spare parts or tires.

“The Allende Administration consciously adopted a policy of beginning to diversify Chile’s trade by expanding ties with … European countries, and Japan… [But] in 1970, U.S. direct private investment in Chile stood at $1.1 billion, out of an estimated total foreign investment of $1.672 billion. U.S. and foreign corporations played a large part in almost all of the critical areas of the Chilean economy. Furthermore, United States corporations controlled the production of 80 percent of Chile’s copper, which in 1970 accounted for four-fifths of Chile’s foreign exchange earnings.

[All the while] the more extreme fears [of Nixon, Henry Kissinger and allies] about the effects of Allende’s election were ill-founded: there never was a significant threat of a Soviet military presence [and] the “export” of Allende’s revolution was limited…”

It should be clear, Allende was never given a fair chance. At the same time, his nationalizations were not without reason. As mentioned, there was a lot of cartel forming in Chile, a lot of it involving U.S. corporations. Most controversial of all was Anaconda Copper, a major topic of contention during the 1970 elections. Anaconda was owned by U.S. Pilgrims Society elites, it had worked with the CIA in undermining the Allende election, and managed a huge chunk of Chile’s copper reserves. Predictably, it was accused of underpaying and otherwise exploiting Chilean workers. To take the edge of the criticism, in 1969 the Christian Democrat Frei government arranged a “negotiated nationalization” with the U.S. copper companies. This deal was not popular and seen as bowing to American imperialism. When Allende decided to fully nationalize these copper companies in 1971, there were worries about a U.S. response, but no one in congress protested. It seems clear that similar cartel-forming and exploitations by other Chile-based U.S. corporations fueled a strong sense of socialism, communism and nationalism among the population.

Having said that, it’s unlikely that Allende’s Marxist-socialist economy would ever have been able to compete with a “free market” system, even with full support of the United States. It would have had to transform to much more moderate European socialism, and arguably break up cartels and monopolies even more. Of course, it never got that chance. At the same time, it can’t be argued that the “Chicago boys” weren’t effective in curbing Chile’s hyperinflation and stabilization the economy. Initially, from late 1973 to early 1975, “regular” economics Raul Saez and Fernando Leniz oversaw a gradual reintroduction of capitalism in Chile. “Chicago boy” Pablo Baraona was an advisor to Leniz, but did not have a dominant influence. In July 1974, Pinochet appointed “Chicago boys” and “shock therapy” enthusiasts Sergio de Castro and Jorge Cauas to aid Saez and Leniz in reconstructing the economy. By January 1975 the Chilean economy hit its bottom. Milton Friedman visited Chile and Pinochet in March 1975. A month later, on April 21, Friedman wrote a letter to Pinochet with additional recommendations on how to deal with hyperinflation – which was still running rampant. This was the same month that the “Chicago boys”-devised, Pinochet-approved El Plan de Recuperacion Econemica (The Plan for Economic Recuperation) was implemented. It called for “shock therapy”, fully overseen by “Chicago boys” Sergio de Castro and Jorge Cauas, with Pablo Baraona now installed as president of the Chilean Central Bank. In his letter, Friedman wrote:

“Unfortunately, Chile only faces a choice between evils: a brief period of high unemployment or a long period of high–though slightly less high–unemployment. I believe that the experience of Germany and Japan after World War II, of Brazil more recently, of the post-war readjustment in the U.S. when government spending was slashed drastically and rapidly, all argue for shock treatment. All suggest that the period of severe transitional difficulties would be brief–measured in months–and that subsequent recovery would be rapid.”

Over 1975 Chilean GDP saw a moderate improvement, and then took off in the 1976-1982 period. Unemployment? That’s another issue. The problem with this neoliberal economic fix has been that it led to high levels of poverty, unemployment, low pay, long working hours, slum-forming and the destruction of the education system – of course all complete non-issues to strict libertarians and neoliberals as Milton Friedman. Very recognizable and very reminiscent of Wall Street, neoliberal deregulation in Chile also appears to have led to huge banking speculation and the issuing of many bad loans (many “Chicago Boys” ended up as bankers, some later accused of mishandling funds). In the November 1981 – January 1983 period, coinciding with a giant economic crash, many of Chile’s leading banks had to be bailed out by the Pinochet government – a type of government intervention neoliberals seldom seem to oppose. In his biography, Friedman claimed that the only issue was the Chileans – actually under “Chicago boy” Sergio de Castro – pegging the Chilean peso to the U.S. dollar, causing a crash when Reagan brought down inflation and strengthened the dollar. The peg was removed in August 1982 and “rapid real growth resumed.” This is followed by a few lines in which Friedman is basically painting Pinochet as a well-meaning Democrat and that “the new [Democrat] government has largely continued the free-market economic policies”.

Friedman might be cutting a few corners here. Strict neoliberalism was curbed a bit by Pinochet after the 1982-1983 crisis led to failing banks and large-scale protests. A degree of regulation was put back in place at this point. In 1984-1985, during the earliest recovery phase, there even was Keynesian experiment being implemented under former IMF director Luis Escobar Cerda. Veteran “Chicago boy” Hernan Buchi, minister of finance of Chile 1985-1989, kept neoliberalism in place, however, until the end of the Pinochet regime in 1990.

Unfortunately for Pinochet and the “Chicago boys”, their regime only produced 20% growth from the start of the Allende government in 1970 all the way until 1990. There is no telling if this would have continued under strict Milton Friedmanite neoliberalism: we could well have seen a mild version of what happened in Russia in the 1990s – another neoliberal “shock therapy” experiment with a small band of oligarchs quickly dominating and choking the country’s economy. The facts will always be that it wasn’t until the early 1990s, when democratic rule returned to Chile, minimum wages were increased, labor unions were strengthened, and education was improved, that GDP exploded. We might be able to forever argue whether the GDP explosion is due to, or despite of, these socialist measures. Between 1990 and 1996, poverty decreased from 39% to 23%, bringing these numbers from “high” among Latin American countries to “average”. Friedman, of course, will most likely always argue that this simply is due to GDP increase and that probably even higher growth numbers would have been achieved without the implementation of these social measures. Despite major social improvements, the gap between the rich in Chile and the poor continued to increase in the 1990s, indicating that neoliberalism here still needed a little additional curbing.

Friedman and Arnold Harberger’s name popped up again in mid 1980 in Bolivia, while neighboring Chile’s GDP was riding high from its initial round of “shock therapy”. In June 1980 General Luis Garcia Meza Tejada came to power here through a – once again – CIA-backed “cocaine coup”. Soon after, the general appointed a certain Marcelo Montero as director of Bolivia’s Central Bank, a “Chicago Boy” whom Friedman and Professor Albert Harberger, were delighted to have. [7]

In the end, the policies of Allende and the “Chicago Boys” represent extremes: communism versus unrestrained capitalism. If they would have met in the middle, early on, right now you would probably have something in Chile close to North-West Europe; quite possibly something even better.

The neocon non-establishment I: non-independence

paul wolfowitz douglas feith neocons
Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith, the two highest-ranked Zionist neocons in the history of the U.S. government. Wolfowitz was Rumsfeld’s deputy secretary of defense from 2001 to 2005, with Feith serving as under secretary of defense for policy. Both came out of Sen. Jackson’s Zionist “fifth column” office. Wolfowitz in particular has numerous liberal establishment ties: George Shultz, State Department, Bilderberg, Aspen, World Bank, and more.

In this article and oversight we demonstrated that there’s a “right-side” to the Rockefeller establishment, over the decades having run through Nelson Rockefeller and close David Rockefeller friends Henry Kissinger and, in particular, George Shultz.

But that’s not all. Shultz’s primariy protege, Condoleezza Rice, is mixed in there. So are a whole bunch of other top Superclass Index listings: Alexander Haig, Conrad Black, Frank Carlucci, Donald Rumsfeld, Niall Ferguson, Carla Hills, Sam Nunn, Joseph Nye, C. Boyden Gray, John Whitehead and Francis Fukuyama, individuals one could have found over the decades at the Hoover Institution in particular, but also the Hudson Institute, the RAND Corporation, The Third Committee on the Present Danger and, to a lesser degree maybe, the American Enterprise Institute.

Still, with the latter institute, the AEI, let’s not forget that Willard Butler, the chairman of the AEI fundraising committee in the late 1970s and trustee chair in the late 1980s, was a close ally of David Rockefeller, whom he followed up in 1979-1980 as CEO and then chair of Chase Manhattan.

Subsequently, one looks over at famous neocons as Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and Dov Zakheim, and we find that these individuals have interacted with the likes of Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, Maurice Greenberg and Zbigniew Brzezinski – all very close David Rockefeller friends – at locations as the Center for the National Interest, its spin-off, the American Interest; Hollinger International, Trireme Partners LP – specifically set up to capitalize on the War on Terror, right after 911 – and even for decades at the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission. Often also one or more administrations.

Another angle to look at it, is that leading neocons, as personified by the George W. Bush administration of 2001-2009, have always supported open borders policies, while at the same time being virulently against any “conspiracy theories”. Vice-versa, persons as Shultz and Kissinger have neither opposed torture (“extraordinary rendition”) nor the War on Terror.

In fact, Stephen Kappes, who oversaw the CIA’s extraordinary rendition and was forced to resign over it as deputy CIA director over it in 2010, was made a director of the elite Atlantic Council soon after. Here he was situated on the board with key Kissinger protege Brent Scowcroft (interim board chair and chair advisory board), Henry Kissinger himself, Richard Armitage, top 10 superclass members Thomas Pickering and John Whitehead, Paula Dobriansky, Stephen Hadley and top neocons James Woolsey and Dov Zakheim. Honorary directors in this period? Madeleine Albright, James Baker, Frank Carlucci, Robert Gates, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, George Shultz and William Webster. [1]

In 2014 Kappes also became a member of the American Academy of Diplomacy (AAD). Among its 230 members and honorary members at the time could be found many of the same names as the Atlantic Council: Henry Kissinger (1983-2016), George Shultz, Kissinger protege Brent Scowcroft, Shultz protege Condoleezza Rice, Madeleine Albright, top globalist Thomas Pickering (chair), close Rockefeller friend John Whitehead, former CIA director William Webster, Frank Wisner II, James Baker III, Frank Carlucci (1983-), Felix Rohatyn, Donald Rumsfeld, Hillary Clinton, Paula Dobriansky, Lee Hamilton, John Negroponte, Joseph Nye, Walter Mondale (founding Trilateral Commission member), etc. [2]

In 2011 Shultz and Kissinger also were listed alongside a long list of former top CIA officers recommending the instatement of Gina Haspel, the first female CIA director, who used to run a base in Thailand where suspected Al Qaeda terrorists were flown into and tortured. While there was minor disagreement over the invasion of Iraq – mainly coming from Brent Scowcroft and James Baker – among elites there never was any opposition to the global War on Terror in the wake of 9/11, nor apparently the CIA’s use of torture.

All this begs the question: how much of a “war” has actually been going on between “the necons” and the traditional “Eastern Establishment”? Because they seem to be the same thing. I anything, the neocons are just a tool in the toolset of the establishment, that came in very handy post-9/11. There was virtually no serious opposition to the neocon rhetoric in this period, apart from “liberal CIA”-type networks – which also are establishment controlled. Sometimes the establishment implements a desired globalist policy through “the left”; other times it needs “the right”. The necons are one these strands of rightists.

In other articles ISGP demonstrated Rockefeller domination of the U.S. political system. In line with this it must be acknowledged that the Republican Party is split among liberal Rockefeller Republicans and a radical conservative wing, which in turn is split into the influential pro-Israel “neoconservatives” and the increasingly marginal traditional right wing: the antisemitic, Christian conservative “old right” and “new right” of the Cold War. The neocons and Christian conservative have been working together against liberals, mainly Democrats, since the 1970s. This peculiar alliance only breaks down at the lowest, controlled-opposition John Birch Society / “alt-right” conspiracy level.

One major problem with these right-wing establishment aspects is that they have been dominated by the CIA and the Pentagon ever since the creation of the national security state. ISGP’s article on the American Security Council and its neoconservative follow-up, the Center for Security Policy, made this painfully clear, as well as ISGP’s article on Le Cercle Pinay.

More recently, in the Pilgrims Society article, ISGP looked into the financing of the neocon movement through foundations as Olin, Bradley, Scaife, H. Smith Richardson Foundation and Achelis and Bodman. Not only do some of these foundations have clear CIA ties, but some of them also have had liberal establishment elites, including many Pilgrims, on the board for decades, sitting there alongside their conservative counterparts. Once again, it really makes one wonder to what extent the “neocons” or even traditional conservatives even exist as a separate establishment, or if they are just a finger of the right hand.

The neocon non-establishment II: names and positions

Top neocon Richard Perle. Backed by Ted Shackley (CIA), Frank Carlucci (CIA), James Schlesinger (CIA), James Woolsey (CIA); Conrad Black (Hollinger and Bilderberg), Netanyahu (Israel), to a degree by George Shultz (Bechtel) and even works with Henry Kissinger on many occasions these days (Bilderberg, National Interest and various company boards).
But where is this “neocon establishment?” It doesn’t exist. All neocons are low to mid-level DOD employees, CIA-Mossad liaison officers and political science professors involved in various think tanks.
So why is everyone talking about the neocon takeover of the US government?

There’s been much talk about the “neoconservatives” in particular since George W. Bush was elected president in 2000, followed by 9/11, the War on Terror, and the invasions. There isn’t really a definitive answer as to what a “neoconservative” is, although the obvious, yet politically incorrect, answer is that they have an “Israel uber alles” mentality and don’t know how to balance a government budget if their life depended on it.

Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney have been labeled “neoconservatives”. The problem is, as ISGP’s index of institutes demonstrates, that these men have been very comfortable with the liberal establishment, having held important positions in groups ranging from the CFR and the Bretton Woods Committee to the Eisenhower Fellowships and the Atlantic Institute of International Affairs.

Yes, Rumsfeld and Cheney – in addition to James Woolsey and to a degree George Shultz – have supported Israel much stronger than almost anyone in the liberal establishment, but does this make them part of an entirely new establishment? Hardly. Throughout the 1990s Rumsfeld even was a director of Gulfstream, together with George Shultz, Colin Powell, Henry Kissinger and Lynn Forester de Rothschild. His name also appeared as a member of the Anglo-American Pilgrims Society in the 1990s. So did Bush’s uncle, by the way, Prescott S. Bush, Jr., the brother of President George H. W. Bush. And upon seeing Cheney’s puppy dog face when taking a question from David Rockefeller at the Council on Foreign Relations and hearing his introduction–quoted below–and it’s immediately clear that Cheney too is extremely close to the liberal establishment:

“It’s good to be back at the Council on Foreign Relations. As Pete [Peterson] mentioned, I’ve been a member for a long time and was actually a director for some period of time. I never mentioned that when I was campaigning for re-election back home in Wyoming.” [3]

If Rumsfeld and Cheney aren’t true neoconservatives, independent of the liberal establishment, then who are? Well, maybe there are none. Virtually all well-known neoconservatives fall into one or more of the categories below:

  1. Mid-level Pentagon employees.
  2. National security scholars.
  3. Executives of CIA and Pentagon-linked think tanks.

Well-known neoconservatives include Richard Perle, Edward Luttwak, Paul Wolfowitz, Elliott Abrams, Douglas Feith, Frank Gaffney, Dov Zakheim, Irving Kristol, William Kristol, Joshua Muravchik, Richard Pipes and Daniel Pipes. The fact is, while being (very) influential in a whole range of big business-financed think tanks and conferences, these “neocons” never rose to top positions in the U.S. government. Wolfowitz held the highest office: as Rumsfeld’s deputy secretary of defense from 2001 to 2005 and then as World Bank president until being kicked out by his own personnel in 2007. Douglas Feith, as under secretary of defense for policy, served under Wolfowitz, and, together with AIPAC henchmen as Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, collected much of the dirty propaganda to make a U.S. invasion of Iraq possible. Back in the early 1980s, Feith served under Richard Perle in the Defense Department.

WINEP research director Patrick Clawson in 2012 when he says: “Look people, Iranian submarines periodically go down; some day one of them may not come up. Who would know why? We can do a variety of things if we wish to increase the pressure.” Clawson openly suggested a false flag-type attack to bring the U.S. into war with Iran. The advisory board of WINEP, a Zionist think tank, has included top neocons as James Woolsey, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, in addition to Rockefeller representatives as Henry Kissinger and George Shultz. Dov Zakheim has also been a major player in WINEP. There’s little doubt that Israel is maintaining a fifth column in the U.S. through WINEP, AIPAC, CPMAJO and other groups.

Bush appointed Perle chairman of the Defense Policy Board in 2001, but this is not an official government position and already in 2003 he was forced to step down. Back when Reagan came into office in 1981, Perle did have an official position at the Defense Department, but counted Fred Ikle and General Richard Stilwell, a former CIA chief in the Far East, among his superiors here. This was much the same with Wolfowitz, who had bosses as Alexander Haig and George Shultz at the State Department.

Throughout the 1980s Perle’s DOD clique were key liaisons to the secretive Cercle group, most likely arranged through the connections of their boss, deputy secretary of defense Frank Carlucci. Carlucci was a friend of controversial CIA spook Ted Shackley, who seemingly controlled the Cercle group. Carlucci is actually said to have made a decision with Shackley, General Vernon Walters (ASC), George H. W. Bush and others, to try and foment a silent CIA coup of the White House in the late 1970s, which took the form of the hawkish Reagan administration. [4] As we know that Carlucci, Shackley and Bush were close associates and friends from the 1970s on and into the 21st century, [5] it’s not surprising either that Rumsfeld, a childhood friend and political protege of Carlucci; and George W. Bush, the son of George H. W. Bush, allowed the neocons to return. However, the neocons do not control anything. They are always brought in as assistants.

As has been discussed in some detail in ISGP’s American Security Council article, many neocons originated from the office of Senator Henry Jackson to be employed as “detente wreckers”, the famous policy embraced by Henry Kissinger, the Rockefellers and the State Department as a whole. Back in the 1970s Richard Perle, Edward Luttwak (earlier Perle’s roommate at the London School of Economics), Paul Wolfowitz, Elliott Abrams, Douglas Feith and Frank Gaffney were all employed here.

The shenanigans in the office of Senator Henry Jackson occurred in the same period that a number of CIA-linked “neocon” foundations began building the “neocon” movement – except that half these foundations also contained liberal Eastern Establishment elites on their board. We’re talking Olin Foundation, H. Smith Richardson Foundation, the Scaife foundations, Bradley Foundation, Coors Foundation and the Achelis and Bodman Foundation. To illustrate, what was John J. McCloy, a Pilgrim, Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation chair and Rockefeller agent par excellence, doing on the board of the Olin Foundation from the late 1970s until his death in 1989? And that’s just where the Eastern Establishment ties of the birth of the neocon movement start.

Going back to Senator Henry Jackson’s clique of Perle, Luttwak, Wolfowitz, Abrams, Feith and Gaffney, we can also add Richard Pipes, who used to be on the board of the CIA- and Pentagon-dominated American Security Council and served as an advisor to the senator in the 1970s. Gaffney founded the Center for Security Policy, the unofficial neocon successor of the American Security Council. Another, Luttwak, worked at the prestigious CSIS think tank for several decades. In this capacity he has been a permanent consultant to various special operations branches of the Pentagon, the national security council, the State Department, and, unofficially, the CIA covert operations clique surrounding Ted Shackley. Still, Gaffney, Pipes, Luttwak, and fellow-neocon Joshua Muravchik, never held any official government positions. They somehow made a name for themselves as outside consultants.

True, apart from Perle, a few other neocons also held official positions in the U.S. government. William Kristol, the famous founder of the Project for the New American Century, was chief of staff to vice president Dan Quayle in the administration of George H. W. Bush. Dov Zakheim was another mid-level Pentagon employee under Reagan who was reappointed during the administration of George W. Bush, in his case as under secretary of defense (comptroller). That’s about it. All this stands in stark contrast to the more than 30 NGOs and Pentagon advisory groups Zakheim has been involved in until this point, quite often alongside former CIA director James Woolsey. Kristol held about 20 such positions. His father, Irving Kristol, infamously co-founded Encounter magazine for the CIA.

Senator Henry Jackson, an absolute favorite of the CIA, American Security Council, Le Cercle, and Israel. On whose behalf exactly did he run a Zionist fifth column from his senate office? Here we have one senator employing Perle, Wolfowitz, Feith, Luttwak, Gaffney, Pipes and Abrams as staffers, years before most of them rose to prominence. This might well be one of the most important overlooked facts in American history, still waiting for a decent explanation.

If anything, the vast majority of neocons, if not all of them, appear to be toys of the CIA and mainly used as liaisons to the Israeli government. As has been discussed by ISGP, the CIA, mainly through the private club of men as Richard Helms, Ted Shackley, Frank Carlucci and George H. W. Bush, has maintained relations with the Vatican-Paneuropa network (Le Cercle), the Saudis (Safari Club), and, seemingly through the neocons, Israel. Just the latest example I ran across is Edward Luttwak, an expert on death squads and coups, who can be tied to Giancarlo Elia Valori through Italintesa and an Aspen Institute-sponsored meeting in Italy. [6] Valori used to be a Cercle member [7] and one of the key players in the P2 Lodge, part of the terrorist Strategy of Tension in Italy. To this day he has top-level friends in the United States and the Israel lobby, and is still suspected to be a major behind-the-scenes power player.

Almost certainly Valori was well-acquainted with Michael Ledeen, another fascist Zionist extremist, at the time of Italy’s false flag bombings, the Banco Ambrosiano scandal and the subsequent P2 affair. Ledeen was operating in Italy as a SISMI military intelligence “risk consultant”. He primarily worked with controversial SISMI asset Francesco Pazienza, with P2 member General Giuseppe Santovito being the head of SISMI at the time. Both Pazienza and Santovito were close associates of Valori, who in more recent decades turned from a Vatican insider to being one of the closest friends of radical Zionism. [8]

Of course, Ledeen also never held any official government position. He’s just an academic and journalist who shows up wherever some kind of conspiracy is suspected, whether it’s an assassination attempt on the pope, Iran Contra, or the Iraq invasion. Unsurprisingly, Ledeen has been close to CIA covert operation veterans as William Colby and especially Ted Shackley for many decades.

Senator Jackson himself was closely linked to this same CIA group. In 1973 he worked closely with top CIA officers Ted Shackley, William Colby and James Schlesinger in undermining the Church Committee’s inquiries into Richard Helms’ illegal CIA projects: MK-ULTRA, the Kennedy assassination, coups, Mockingbird, etc. [9] Jackson is also known to have been a darling of the American Security Council and to have visited the secretive Cercle group of Shackley, although it was mainly Perle or an assistant of his, Pat Balestreri, who showed up as a Pentagon liaison to Le Cercle in the 1980s. Wolfowitz visited Le Cercle in the early 1990s.

How exactly did this network come about? We don’t really know the details, but Perle, as well as Wolfowitz, was sent to Jackson’s office by Albert Wohlstetter, one of the godfathers of neoconservatism who was a veteran of the RAND Corporation and various national security think tanks, all linked to the Pentagon and the CIA. Already in 1969, Wohstetter was responsible for putting Wolfowitz and Perle on the Committee to Maintain a Prudent Defense Policy, founded by Dean Acheson and Paul Nitze, the latter quite possibly the most hawkish Eastern Establishmentarian of the early Cold War.

The neocon non-establishment III: James Woolsey

Interestingly, Richard Perle is actually not the most connected neocon of all. Ranked far above him on the neoconservative ladder is the ultraconnected CIA spook James Woolsey, the number 2 in ISGP’s Superclass Index, right behind Henry Kissinger. Indeed, Woolsey has been involved in more think tanks and advisory bodies than a George Shultz or David Rockefeller. Since 9/11, Woolsey has played a role in almost every think tank and action group set up by the neocons, often alongside Richard Perle and Dov Zakheim. Woolsey, however, has always been intricately connected to the core of the liberal establishment, best illustrated by his support for anti-global warming measures, Yale and Rhodes Scholarship background (Senators of his 1993 CIA senate confirmation hearing were joking about Rhodes scholars taking over the administration and being so deeply involved in intelligence), membership in the CFR since 1975, directorship of the Atlantic Council since 1981, positions at the Smithsonian, and vice chairmanship of the CSIS think tank by 1988 [10], where already at that point he shared the board with Henry Kissinger, Maurice Greenberg, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Claiborne Pell (closest of friends with the Liechtenstein family) the previously-mentioned Etienne Davignon and Baron Edmond de Rothschild. [11] The neocon Edward Luttwak, of course, was equally active at CSIS.

Former CIA director and top-neocon James Woolsey, ranked number 2 in ISGP’s Superclass Index, right behind Henry Kissinger. Here Woolsey is arguing that Edward Snowden should be hanged for having exposed questionable and even unlawful spy operations of the NSA.
Similarly, former NSA and CIA director Michael Hayden, another major superclass member, stated at the 2013 Cybersecurity Summit that he wants Snowden put on a “kill list” and, bizarrely, was supported in this remark by congressman Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

At the same time Woolsey was the ultimate arms industry insider–probably for the CIA–as a lawyer and director of corporations as British Aerospace, DynCorp, Martin Marietta, McDonnell Douglas, Litton Industries, Fairchild Industries, Rockwell, SAIC, the Titan Corporation, United Technologies, General Dynamics and also the Carlyle Group. [12]

In 1987 and 1988 Woolsey was a member of the Scientific Advisory Group of the Joint Strategic Targetting and Planning Staff at Offutt Air Force Base. Worryingly, this is where part of the Franklin Affair mind control research took place, with Woolsey and his wife, a national security behavioral psychologist, being rather closely linked to the affair. [13]

Woolsey’s first association with the neoconservatives, as far as ISGP can figure things out, appears to have been at the Executive Panel of the Chief of Naval Operations when he joined it in 1980. Archneocon Albert Wohlstetter, a RAND scientist and Pentagon consultant who had sent Perle and Wolfowitz to Senator Jackson’s office, served on the Executive Panel from 1971 until his death in 1997. Woolsey actually beat him in terms of longest-serving member, still being a member today.

In 1988 Woolsey’s neocon ties were solidified when he joined the board of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) [14], co-founded a decade earlier by Senator Henry Jackson (there he is again) and Iran-Contra veteran Michael Ledeen [15], who, just as Jackson, was close to CIA officers Ted Shackley, of Le Cercle, and Ray Cline, a co-chair of the American Security Council and the U.S. Global Strategy Council. There’s every indication that back in the 1970s and early 1980s Ledeen was a key U.S. liaison to the fascist P2 Lodge for Shackley at the CIA and Alexander Haig (Pilgrims and Kissinger protege) at the State Department. [16] Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz (co-chair), Douglas Feith (vice-chair), and even Morris Amitay, AIPAC’s executive director, could all be found at JINSA no later than the early 1990s. [17] Ledeen, Perle, and Woolsey stayed on the board of JINSA until early 2012 when a dispute arose with a more moderate lead financier of JINSA and all three prominently resigned. [18] Clearly the three men had grown very close over the decades.

Woolsey, Ledeen and also Perle, through his association with Le Cercle, clearly are all CIA. There’s every indication that Woolsey was already CIA when he established Yale Citizens for Eugene McCarthy for President in 1967, a curious anti-Vietnam War candidate apparently in the business of educating hippies to cut their hair and dress properly. In other words, Woolsey’s 1993 appointment as CIA director doesn’t appear to have been a coincidence and as a lifelong CIA officer, it’s also questionable that Woolsey’s appointment to the board of JINSA and dozens of later neocon outfits has been a coincidence.

Personally I suspect Woolsey has been picked by the private CIA network set up by Richard Helms and Ted Shackley, and today still counts George H. W. Bush and Frank Carlucci among its ranking members, as the network’s chief liaison to the Israel lobby. If anybody is managing the neoconservative movement from behind the scenes, at least from the U.S. side, it would be Woolsey. Woolsey has definitely been close to this CIA group, as his co-chairmanship of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers and the OSS Society, both with George H. W. Bush, demonstrates. Other former CIA officers as James Schlesinger, Frank Carlucci, Richard Helms have also been involved with these groups. Ted Shackley was a key player in the AFIO until his death in 2002. Clearly all these men knew each other very well, but Woolsey’s old CIA ties remain obscure. His Pentagon, neocon and liberal establishment ties are very clear, however.

Woolsey and Cheney may both have been assigned to manage the neoconservative movement, as Cheney was a board member of JINSA from 1993 to 1999. Cheney and Woolsey, who reportedly are close, also know each other from the board of the Jamestown Foundation and the Center for Security Policy. Both men appear to be deep insiders to the United States’ most illegal black programs, as the men’s association with the Russian firm Far West alone seems to indicate. [19] When it comes to any major black program the Pentagon might be running, it’s hard to imagine Woolsey not being aware of it to some degree – as a lot of Unacknowledged Special Access Programs (USAPs) seem to be hidden in private industry. On top of that, Woolsey has served on numerous low profile Pentagon committees. Who the heck has ever heard of the Outer Continental Shelf Policy Committee (OCSPC), the Deterrence Concepts Advisory Group (DCAG), the Disruptive Technology Committee, the Future of Navy Force Structure (FNFS), or the Navy Personnel Policy (NPP)? Not a lot of people, but Woolsey served on all of them.


[1] By far the best summary of the Christian Right and Zionist-neocon alliance to be found (and a view fully shared by ISGP): (accessed: April 6, 2019): “Christian Rightists and Neocons: A 25-Year Alliance, by Matthew Lyons. This talk was part of a panel entitled “War and the Christian Right.” The event took place on 27 October 2005 at the William Way Center in Philadelphia and was sponsored by the Philadelphia Anti-War Forum.
[Lyon speech:] It’s particularly impressive that Christian rightists and neocons have been able to work together more or less continuously for so long, because in a lot of ways, these are two very different political movements. … The Christian Right is a mass movement that has grown by actively involving millions of supporters — primarily middle-class suburbanites. The neocons aren’t a mass movement at all — they’re a small network of intellectuals who depend on elite patronage and who have always been pretty ambivalent about grassroots organizing. … The neocons are disproportionately Jewish or Catholic, and although some of them are religious they’re united by a basically secular ideology that’s rooted in anticommunist liberalism. … The neocons’ core agenda is to reassert U.S. global dominance through an aggressive foreign and military policy. The neocons generally share the Christian Right’s hostility to feminism and gay rights and their call for a return to “traditional values,” but they don’t emphasize these themes as much…
The neocons were mainly a reaction to the [1960s-1970s] antiwar movement, Black Power, and the leftward shift in the Democratic Party; the Christian Right started mobilizing mainly as a backlash against the growth of feminism and gay rights activism. … In the 1970s and eighties the neocons and Christian rightists found several key areas where their politics converged. The most important of these was anticommunism… This anticommunism was tied in with an expansionist form of nationalism — a faith that “American free enterprise” was the greatest system in the world, and that the U.S. had both the right and the responsibility to project its power around the globe to repel and destroy the totalitarian Red menace. In terms of foreign policy, neocons and Christian rightists also shared a strong support for the state of Israel — for very different reasons — which I’ll talk about later. …
When the Soviet bloc collapsed, this anticommunist glue no longer held and the conservative coalition started to fall apart — especially around foreign policy. The neocons argued that the U.S. should continue to have a strong interventionist policy to “promote democracy” around the world. But other rightists, who called themselves paleoconservatives, disagreed. Paleocons such as Pat Buchanan argued that the U.S. should now avoid foreign entanglements, oppose free trade, stop supporting Israel, and sharply limit immigration from non-European countries. Paleocons also promoted an explicitly Christian form of moral traditionalism with strong White nationalist undertones. They accused the neocons of being empire builders and closet liberals. Neocons accused the paleocons of being isolationists and antisemites. … In the faction fight between neocons and paleocons, the Christian Right was caught in the middle. The Christian Right was closer to the paleocons on social policy issues, and a lot of rank-and-file Christian rightists shared the paleocons’ critique of immigration, globalization, and free trade. …
Christian rightists support Israel — specifically, right-wing Zionism — because they believe that a strong Jewish state is part of God’s plan…
Both neocons and Christian rightists had been mostly excluded from the administration of George Bush Senior (and of course that of Bill Clinton), but George W. Bush welcomed them. Neocons were appointed to several key second-tier posts in the Defense Department and other agencies. The Christian Right’s main representative in the Bush administration was Attorney General John Ashcroft, who left office in early 2005. …
For the neocons, September 11 provided the new global enemy they’d been looking for since the collapse of the Soviet Union. … Neocons demonized “radical Islam” as the embodiment of pure evil. … Both of them embraced the Bush administration’s so-called war on terrorism and the decision to invade Afghanistan. … [But] some Christian Right groups criticized repressive measures such as the USA PATRIOT Act.”

To staff the Centre, which today is our Institute of Economics, initially four UofC professors were hired, who were replaced by Chileans once these latter finished their graduate studies. Around 1973, the year of the military coup, about 10 Chilean UofC graduates were working full-time at the Centre and their accumulated knowledge on the Chilean economy was already very significant. Once in power, the military did not want to continue with the type of protectionist and interventionist economic policies which had prevailed in Chile since the 1930’s and therefore turned to the PUC economists, who had a more liberal approach. Initially these UofC economists who joined the military government were called Chicago Boys. Later, this nickname was also applied to other Chilean liberal economists.”

They basically said, “With our expertise at placing dictators in power,” I’m almost quoting verbatim one of their comments, “why don’t we treat the United States like the world’s biggest banana republic and take it over?” And the first thing they had to do was to get their man in the White House, and that was George Bush.”

Carlucci also had total loyalty to General Richard Secord… and Erich von Marbod. … According to Shirley Brill, Carlucci and Shackley were also very close friends. Shackley and Clines knew Carlucci from the Chile operations. … Shackley, according to Soghanalian, had later worked with Calucci in setting up Portugal as a major arms transshipping point for the Middle East. “They played Turner like a violin to get Carlucci the job,” Shirley Brill said. … Weisz told him that “George Bush and James Angleton had been instrumental in putting Weisz where he was.””

The admiration of Israel by the neocons was shared by Ted Shackley.”
*) 2001, Joseph Trento, ‘The Secret History of the CIA’, pp. 410, 426: “Colby understood – as did Kissinger and Ted Shackley… – that the Israeli account was a large source of Angleton’s power. For one thing, it had given them access to five American presidents. …
For the government of Israel, the loss of James Angleton was a major blow, but one for which it was prepared. The Israelis had other friends in the U.S. intelligence community. Colby and Kissinger’s changes in the CIA included cutbacks in Clandestine Services, as a result of which many of the CIA’s most experienced officers were out of work and embittered. …
Meanwhile, Shackley made the Israeli account his own. He kept the relationship personal, as Angleton had done. According to Crowley and other Agency officials, Shackley told no one in the chain of command anything he was doing with respect to Israel. …
[Shackley] introduced George Bush to many of his old Cuban friends in Miami. A decade earlier, they had been the heart of the CIA’s anti-Castro effort. Now, they were a powerful political force Bush could use in his quest to fulfill political ambitions that went beyond the CIA.”

June 1, 2009, Senza Soste (Livorno, Italy), ‘Giancarlo Valori, il nuovo capo della P2 ricevuto in pompamagna a Livorno’ (‘Giancarlo Valori, the new head of the P2, received in grand style in Livorno’): “Valori enrolled in the P2 (card 283) and with Licio Gelli he is one of the instigators of the reactionary right in the period of the new Argentine president Peron, in which they create the conditions for the military dictatorship of 1976-1983 [of Videla and the P2’s Admiral Emilio Eduardo Massera]. But Gelli, on the pretext of his frequent Vatican visits, expels Valori ​​from the P2, to successfully become the main reference point for politicians in Buenos Aires. Valori ​​doesn’t mind that much and continues his frequent visits to the intelligence community and the underbelly of politics. He knows [SISMI head] General [Giuseppe] Santovito, also a P2 member; [P2 member] Mino Pecorelli, [the Banco Ambrosiano and Bologno bombing-linked] Francesco Pazienza and other protagonists of the conspiracies in those years. Because these ties are certainly not ordinary among Italian managers and entrepreneurs, Valori is repeatedly called to testify in key investigations of the early 80s, those of the Rome prosecutors into the P2, of Judge Carlo Palermo into arms trafficking, of Rosario Priore’s report on his relations with the Arab countries, in the context of the investigation into the massacre of Ustica. … In 1981, when the P2 lists are discovered, Giancarlo Elia Valori is the only one who has been “expelled”, so the investigation only touches him marginally. It is said that Tina Anselmi, president of the Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry [into the P2 Lodge], absolutely doesn’t want to talk about him: “I have nothing to say about that gentleman.” … Valori ​​likes to present himself as a professor of international politics and his views are similar to those of the far right Zionists. And he is one of the sponsors of the grotesque Islamic repentent Magdi Allam, and a theorist of a clash of civilizations against Islam. In the preface of a book of Allam he writes: “It is the defense of Israel that is the new platform of European and US grand strategy… The book of Magdi Allam is a good start for this project.” He is firmly opposed to the idea of ​​a Palestinian state, indeed, the very idea of ​​Palestinian people: “We need to change the register: Palestine, which does not exist as a geopolitical entity, is not the solution, but the problem. Speaking of the Palestinian people … means accepting their independence, at least in semantics.” Valori ​​proposes the attribution to Israel of most of the occupied territories, while the Gaza Strip and the West Bank should be assigned respectively to Egypt and Jordan.”


1976, Pike Report, pp. 112-113: “Upon hearing testimony from Helms in February 1973, Senator Church’s Multinational Corporations Subcommittee informed the CIA on 21 February 1973 that it had found “significant discrepancies” between Helms’s testimony and data ITT had supplied. On that same day, Theodore Shackley (Chief, Western Hemisphere Division, DP) took the first step to limit damage to the Agency. He recommended to DCI Schlesinger that the Agency should work [through Senators Stennis or Symington who “could be persuaded” to agree to a “controlled appearance” for the DCI before the Multinational Corporations Subcommitte] …  Two days later, on 23 February 1973, Agency officers began quiet efforts with the help of Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson, a close friend of the CIA, to blunt Senator Church’s scrutiny of CIA, Chile, and Richard Helms. Jackson offered his protective assistance in a remarkable backstage meeting he had with Ted Shackley and CIA Congressional liaison chief John Maury the next day. … [Jackson made several suggestions on how to protect the CIA, as written down by Shackley] … Jackson pledged to work with CIA “to see that we got this protection.” Shackley noted that Senator Jackson, who had been “extremely helpful,” believed that it was “essential” to prevent the establishing of any procedure that could call upon CIA to testify before a wide variety of Congressional committees. Following that meeting, Shackley and Maury at once briefed Colby, who was then CIA’s Executive Director, and Tom Keramessines, the DDP. DCI Schlesinger then asked Senator Jackson to set the wheels in motion for Senator McClellan to call a special meeting of his Oversight Committee. Three weeks later, on 13 March, CIA’s senatorial friends arranged to shield the Agency from unwanted scrutiny… McClellan, Symington, Jackson, John Pastore (D-RI), Strom Thurmond (R-SC, and Roman Hruska R-NE). Colby, Shackley, and Maury accompanied DCI Schlesinger.” p. 173: “[CIA legal counsel Mitchell] Rogovin … accused Pike’s staff of having stolen a copy of the [Ted Shackley] memorandum outlining the sensitive meeting of CIA officers with Senator “Scoop” Jackson in May 1973…”

*) December 14, 1986, Gadsden Times, ‘Conservative scholar believed key figure in Iran deal’: “Ledeen has been identified in Israel and in the United States as being a key player in the initial talks that eventually resulted in the sale of weapons – through Israel – to Iran in the summer of 1985. … Ledeen’s name was also raised in connection with a 1985 meeting with arms merchant Manucher Ghorbanifar, an Iranian expatriate, who, along with Adnan Khashoggi, a Saudi Arabian, were middlemen in the deals. … Ledeen told associates that he met Ghorbanifar several times in Europe between July and December 1985, the Chicago Tribune reported a month ago. … Israeli officials in Jerusalem said Ledeen told former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres in the early spring of 1985 that the United States wanted to re-establish contact with Iran. … Hours after speaking with Ledeen, peres talked to Al Schwimmer, the U.S.-born founder of Israel Aircraft Industries, according to a report in Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper. … It was Schwimmer’s idea to bater weapons for Buckley’s freedom, and Schwimmer turned for help to Israeli arms dealer Yaacov Nimrodi, according to the paper. Ledeen is a founder of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs.” February 2, 1987, Boca Raton News, p. 3A: “[Michael] Ledeen said he has spent a month in Israel on two occasions, staying with his family at quarters furnished at favorable rates by the privately funded Jerusalem Foundation. He said he has been an editor and board member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, which advocates close U.S.-Israeli military ties.”

*) Jackson and Cline were both involved in the American Security Council.
*) 2006, Joseph Trento, ‘Prelude to Terror’, p. 283: “The admiration of Israel by the neocons was shared by Ted Shackley. One of Shackley’s friends and business associates was Michael Ledeen… Lawrence Walsh, the Iran-Contra special prosecutor, wrote in his book ‘Firewall’: “Ledeen was more than a messenger. He had pressed McFarlane to open discussion with (Shimon) Peres and had become the Washington spokesman for the Israeli arms merchants and Ghorbanifar. It was Ledeen who would use Shackley–and his influence with Bush–to orchestrate what would become the arms-for-hostages scheme with Israel as a partner. Ledeen was a certified good guy to the private intelligence network. He had lobbied hard against the prosecution of Tom Clines and Richard Secord over EATSCO.”
*) In 1980, Ledeen worked for the Italian military intelligence service as a “risk assessment” consultant. In 1981, Michael Ledeen then became Special Adviser to secretary of state Alexander Haig.
*) July 2006, Vanity Fair, ‘The War They Wanted, the Lies They Needed’: “The first took place in 1980, when Francesco Pazienza, a charming and sophisticated Propaganda Due operative at the highest levels of SISMI, allegedly teamed up with an American named Michael Ledeen, a Rome correspondent for The New Republic. According to The Wall Street Journal, Pazienza said he first met Ledeen that summer, through a SISMI agent in New York who was working under the cover of a U.N. job. … A 1985 investigation by Jonathan Kwitny in The Wall Street Journal reported that the New Republic article was part of a larger disinformation scam run by Ledeen and SISMI to tilt the election, and that “Billy Carter wasn’t the only one allegedly getting money from a foreign government.” According to Pazienza, Kwitny reported, Michael Ledeen had received at least $120,000 from SISMI in 1980 or 1981 for his work on Billygate [with Arnaud de Borchgrave] and other projects. Ledeen even had a coded identity, Z-3, and had money sent to him in a Bermuda bank account, Pazienza said. Ledeen told the Journal that a consulting firm he owned, I.S.I., worked for SISMI and may have received the money. He said he did not recall whether he had a coded identity. … Pazienza was subsequently convicted in absentia on multiple charges, including having used extortion and fraud to obtain embarrassing facts about Billy Carter. Ledeen was never charged with any crime, but he was cited in Pazienza’s indictment, which read, “With the illicit support of the SISMI and in collaboration with the well-known American ‘Italianist’ Michael Ledeen, Pazienza succeeded in extorting, also using fraudulent means, information … on the Libyan business of Billy Carter, the brother of the then President of the United States.” In an interview with Vanity Fair, Ledeen denied having worked with Pazienza or Propaganda Due as part of a disinformation scheme. “I knew Pazienza,” he explained. “I didn’t think P-2 existed. I thought it was all nonsense—typical Italian fantasy.” He added, “I’m not aware that anything in [the Billygate] story turned out to be false.” Asked if he had worked with SISMI, Ledeen told Vanity Fair, “No,” then added, “I had a project with SISMI—one project.” He described it as a simple “desktop” exercise in 1979 or 1980, in which he taught Italian intelligence how to deal with U.S. officials on extradition matters. His fee, he said, was about $10,000.”
*) 2005, Daniele Ganser, ‘Nato’s Secret Armies’, pp. 74-75: “Frank Gigliotti [Presbyterian/Methodist priest; one-time assistant to a hypnotist; worked with teenaged boys, for whom he organized a social club with the peculiar name Giuseppe Mazzini Club; OSS Italy; Mason] of the US Masonic Lodge personally recruited Gelli and instructed him to set up an anti-Communist parallel government in Italy in close cooperation with the CIA station in Rome. ‘It was Ted Shackley [Le Cercle], director of all covert operations of the CIA in Italy in the 1970s’, an internal report of the Italian anti-terrorism unit confirmed, ‘who presented the chief of the Masonic Lodge to Alexander Haig’. According to the document, Nixon’s Military adviser General Haig [later Pilgrims Society executive], who had commanded US troops in vietnam and thereafter from 1974 to 1979 served as NATO’s SACEUR, and Nixon’s National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger [Pilgrims Society; Le Cercle] ‘authorized Gelli in the fall of 1969 to recruit 400 high ranking Italian and NATO officers into his lodge’.

January 18, 2012, Forward magazine, ‘JINSA Leadership in Flux After Ouster Perle and Woolsey Quit Hawkish Jewish Security Think Tank’: “The Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs recently terminated the second-highest-ranking staff member, who has been with the organization for more than three decades. The move, a culmination of months of internal struggle, prompted several conservative icons to quit the group’s advisory board in protest. Among those turning their back on JINSA were former CIA director James Woolsey, former top Pentagon official Richard Perle and neoconservative figure Michael Ledeen. … JINSA, was founded in 1976, three years after Israel’s Yom Kippur War; one of its main goals was to ensure strong military cooperation between the United States and Israel by educating the American defense establishment on Israel’s strategic importance. … News of JINSA’s troubled internal relations surfaced January 10 with the announcement that Shoshana Bryen, until recently senior director for security policy, had joined the Jewish Policy Center, an up-and-coming conservative Jewish think tank associated with the Republican Jewish Coalition. The statement marked the end of a months-long battle between Bryen and her bosses. Bryen had been at JINSA for 32 years and, according to a prominent lay leader, was considered its “public face.” She served as JINSA’s executive director from 1981 to 1991 and is credited with transforming the organization from a small think tank into a player in the Washington conservative scene. She later took charge of issues relating to defense policies and was the main author of the group’s reports and position papers. Bryen’s blunt analysis of the Middle East gave her a reputation as a hawkish straight shooter, short on nuance and willing to take on the conventional wisdom. For instance, she opposed talks with the Palestine Liberation Organization even when negotiations were endorsed by a Republican administration; even now, defying much of the rhetoric of supporters of Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, she thinks an Israeli attack on Iran is unlikely. It is this style that, according to a key JINSA lay leader, got Bryen in trouble. Accounts provided to the Forward by board members and individuals close to the organization, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the personal nature of the dispute, portrayed a tense relationship between Bryen and JINSA’s president, David Ganz, a successful Boston businessman who is also the group’s largest single donor. The two have sparred over issues relating to JINSA’s future and the focus of its programs. Officials involved with the group said that Ganz viewed Bryen’s direct style and her open opposition to decisions made by the board as problematic.”

In early 1980 the price of silver had been driven up several times over, with the Hunt brothers owning roughly half of all silver. At that point the price of silver collapsed. When the oil market also crashed in the 1980s, the Hunt family’s fortune was wiped out.

    • Major supporter of Senator Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s. Together with Hoover and like-minded businessmen, Murchison, Jr. supported Dwight Eisenhower, LBJ, and Richard Nixon for political office.
    • Became affiliated with the circle of Robert Booth Nichols, a notorious yakuza, mafia and Danny Casolaro death-tied CIA officer; and former FBI special agent-turned-massive conspiracy disinformer Ted Gunderson. Investigative journalists Danny Casolaro and Carol Marshall saw Nichols and Murchison’s low profile company FIDCO as a top player in “the Octopus”, a term they used for the shadow government.
      • December 24, 1993, Los Angeles Times, ‘Judge Clears City in Man’s Defamation Suit’: “Nichols’ name first surfaced in a late 1980s’ FBI investigation of alleged mob penetration into the entertainment industry. [Another] report said Nichols met frequently with Washington reporter Danny Casolaro–who had been investigating conspiracies ranging from the Iran-Contra affair to government skulduggery–shortly before the reporter’s mysterious 1991 death.”
      • 1994, Carol Marshall, ‘The Last Circle’: “On November 30, 1991, Ted Gunderson opened the door at his Manhattan Beach home… At one time Gunderson, Nichols and Riconosciuto had been inseparable, like the three musketeers. But, Nichols was currently under investigation by the Los Angeles FBI for alleged involvement in organized crime in the U.S. and abroad. …
        [Gunderson] was also [FBI] SAC from 1973 to 1977 in Dallas, Texas (where he became friends with Clint Murchison, Jr., according to his livein partner, J.M.. J.M. stated in phone interviews that she and Gunderson attended parties with Murchison in Dallas, and Gunderson phoned him often from their Manhattan Beach home).”
      • 1994, Carol Marshall, ‘The Last Circle’: “But again I asked myself, why was an international arms dealer [Nichols] on the Board of F.I.D.C.O (First Intercontinental Development Corporation), a CIA front corporation, which offered three billion dollars to rebuild Beirut to President Amin Gamayel of Lebanon, whose chief of finances (Sami el Khouri) was shipping tons of heroin to Sicily for reexport to America, want to invest in “a method for induction and activation of cytotoxic T-Lymphocytes”?”
      • February 5, 2001, Insight on the News, ‘The Plot Thickens in PROMIS Affair’: [Robert] Booth Nichols also served on the board of First Intercontinental Development Corp. (FIDCO), a building/construction company. Among Nichols’ corporate partners at FIDCO in the 1980s were Michael McManus, then an aide to President Reagan; Robert Maheu, former chief executive officer of Howard Hughes Enterprises; and Clint Murchison Jr. of the Murchison empire based in Dallas.
        Riconosciuto long has maintained that Booth Nichols and FIDCO were associated with U.S. intelligence agencies and used as a cutout. Again, whereas others summarily had dismissed this claim, the RCMP investigators pursued the lead, poring over documents from the long-abandoned Riconosciuto storage and in the files of U.S. law-enforcement agencies. For example, RCMP obtained FBI wiretap summaries of telephone conversations between Nichols and another of his then-partners in FIDCO, Eugene Giaquinto, who at the same time also was president of MCA Home Entertainment Division. The wiretap summaries reads like a who’s who of alleged mob figures with close ties to the motion-picture industry. The Mounties also received substantial related information from classified internal FBI files. …
        Meridian International Logistics, owned by Robert Booth Nichols, a self-proclaimed CIA operative and licensed arms dealer … investigated by the FBI for suspected mob-related money laundering of drug profits and for stock fraud. …
        In a January 1992 letter obtained by Insight on Wackenhut stationery, the company’s director of corporate relations, Patrick Cannan, writes that “John P. Nichols had first introduced Riconosciuto to Wackenhut (Frye, V.P. of Wackenhut, Indio, Ca., office) on a May 1981 trip to the U.S. Army installation at Dover, N.J., where Nichols, Zokosky, Frye and Riconosciuto met with Dr. Harry Fair and several of his Army associates who were the project engineers on the Railgun Project. Riconosciuto and these Army personnel conducted an extensive and highly technical ‘theoretical’ blackboard exercise on the Railgun…”
      • Board members of FIDCO:
        • Robert Maheu, Sr.: FBI agent 1941-1947. As a CIA man working under Allen Dulles and Richard Bissell he ran an anti-Castro operation by enlisting mafia bosses Sam Giancana and John Roselli; CEO of Howard Hughes Operations. Vice-president FIDCO.
        • Michael A. McManus: Assistant to the President Reagan.
        • Robert Booth Nichols: Born March 6, 1943. Reportedly grew up a hitman for the Tong Yakuza in Hawaii. Reportedly laundered $50-200 million for Ferdinand Marcos. An FBI wiretap summary said Nichols used to be CIA and was linked to the Yakuza: Apparently he was a godson, business associate and former hitman for the intelligence-connected, overseas Yakuza official Harold Okimoto in Hawaii, who in turn is said to have worked under then CIA deputy director and later Carlyle Group and top superclass member Frank Carlucci. Nichols is also said to have been a money launderer for the Gambino crime family. CEO of R.B.N. Companies International, a holding company for manufacturing and development of high technology electronics, real estate development, construction and international finance. Numerous U.S. and British intelligence links. Chairman Meridian International Logistics (had Eugene Giaquinto of MCA – linked to drug trafficking – on the board; also Harold Okimoto), which had extensive business deals in Japan and Australia. It also owned Meridian Arms, of which Riconosciuto was vice president (Harold Okimoto and Glenn Shockley were directors). Meridians Arms maintained a partnership with Wackenhut and the Cabazon Indian Reserve, which developed all kinds of explosives, guns and was apparently was involved in biological warfare research. Allan Boyak claimed Nichols’ rum importing business was a cover for Golden Triangle heroin import. Reportedly once named “Mr. Big” in Pablo Escobar’s Medellin Cartel. Claimed to have been asked to become minister of state security on Dominica, supposedly because the island was to become a CIA base. Apparently tried to steal a government treasury bond for 2,500 metric tons of gold, worth $250 billion.

    Olin Foundation board in 1982. Click to see board compositions for 1980 and 1987 as well.
  • Foundation in existence from 1953 to 2005.
    • May 2007, Capital Research Center’s Foundation Watch, ‘Safeguarding a Conservative Donor’s Intent: The Roe Foundation at 39’: “The most dramatic solution involves a strategy of depleting an endowment over a period of time until it’s gone. That’s what the industrialist John M. Olin chose to do with his fortune. He told the board of directors of the John M. Olin Foundation not to let the foundation survive more than a generation beyond his death. Olin passed away in 1982; his foundation held its final board meeting and closed its doors in 2005.”
  • A conservative foundation that stood at the basis of the neocon movement that arose in the 1970s. Nevertheless, the foundation had major Eastern Establishment ties. Founder John M. Olin was a member of the Pilgrims Society. So were 1970s and 1980s directors as Olin Industries director John W. Hanes, key Rockefeller man John J. McCloy, and Knight of Malta and Heritage Foundation board member William Simon – the Olin Foundation’s president. There’s an interesting history that can be read in ISGP’s Pilgrims Society article.
    • 1995 annual report, Heritage Foundation: “Board of Trustees: Honorary Trustees: Joseph Coors … Henry Salvatori. Board of Trustees: … Richard M. Scaife. … Dr. Edwin J. Feulner, Jr., President… Midge Decter … William Middendorf II … Thomas A. Roe … William E. Simon … Dr. Robert Krieble…”
  • The large and important Bradley Foundation, at least since 1985, essentially was an outgrowth of the Olin Foundation, one that is still relevant to this day. Michael Joyce, a Knight of Malta and the executive director of the Olin Foundation, switched over to the Bradley Foundation in 1985 where he became president until 2001.
  • 2010, Andrew Johnstone and Helen Laville, ‘The US Public and American Foreign Policy’: “John Olin, the founder of the Olin Foundation, had spoken in the 1970s of the need to fund a “counter intelligentsia” of scholars, think tanks and publications to promote conservative ideas in the face of what he saw as the liberal establishment and the legacy of the 1960s.”
  • October 16, 1978,, ‘Ex-Treasury Secretary William Simon Fears That the Economy Hasn’t Got a Prayer’ (while president of the Olin Foundation): “The Republican Party … is inert—reduced to spineless inconsistency by a half century of compromise on principle. Americans do not need a dime-store version of the new despotism when they’ve already got the real thing in the form of the Democrats [under Jimmy Carter]. The only thing that can save the Republican party is a counter-intelligentsia that will fight the bureaucratic despots in Washington. …
    Clearly Ronald Reagan is the front-runner. I most certainly would support him if he is the nominee, as I would Gerald Ford if he is the Republican candidate. …
    Stop asking for handouts [is the key]. The concept of a free lunch is of relatively recent origin in our 202-year history. These “free” goods and services are anything but free. They are simply extracted from the hides of our neighbors. In the full context of human history, individual liberty was a bizarre new idea, but not as bizarre as the idea of a free market—the discovery that allowing millions upon millions of individuals to pursue their material interest as they choose, with a minimum of interference by the state, will unleash an incredible outpouring of prosperity. If we return to that philosophy, our problems are licked. …
    Most Americans have been trained to see the state as economically omniscient and to blame all evil on “business.” The sadly ignorant public really believes that the bureaucrats and politicians in Washington have the keys to the economic kingdom. Should a great economic disaster come, out of panic they will demand a takeover of the major means of production by the state. …
    We have plenty of legal precedents for such a [business] takeover [by government]. Then this economy will be exactly like the socialist British economy—stone-dead.
    Everybody is a villain in this piece. At Treasury I watched businessmen run to Washington for handouts. Lockheed wanted federal money to bail them out. Bankers like David Rockefeller demanded bailouts to protect them from their ill-conceived investments. Network chiefs like William Paley did what they could to block the emergence of competitive pay-TV. All of this has fueled the kind of government interference that is wrecking the economy and threatening our liberties. …
    Before leaving office I presented President Ford with a blueprint that would get rid of all deductions and have each taxpayer pay a flat percentage—say 16 percent. Just as much revenue would be raised, and it would be much fairer. …
    Richard Nixon is a brilliant man, and our working relationship was warm and cordial. I remember that final, sad Cabinet meeting at the climax of Watergate, where we all stared down at our laps or off into space as Nixon’s eyes beseeched us for support, almost begging us to say he had done no wrong. But no one said a word. He resigned two days later.”


Achelis and Bodman Foundation
Pilgrims Society officers list from 2014, showing some of the neocon Achelis and Bodman Foundation’s leaders together with more well-known Eastern Establishmentarians as Henry Kissinger, Paul Volcker and John Whitehead, three good friends of David Rockefeller.

  • Group of foundations consisting of the Newton D. & Rochelle F. Becker Foundation, Newton and Rochelle Becker Family Foundation, and Newton and Rochelle Becker Charitable Trust.
  • Newton D. Becker does not appear to be founded by anyone with major superclass ties, at least on the surface. However, his long-standing interest in renewable energy makes it likely he was spotted at one point by the neocon clique of former CIA director James Woolsey, whose activities Becker has been financing to quite a degree. This includes the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security / U.S. Energy Security Council.
    • January 5, 2012, The Plain Dealer, ‘Newton D. Becker’: “Newt, 83, was born in Cleveland, OH, in 1928. … The chairman and founding investor of Luz International, at one time the leading developer of solar energy electrical plants, Newt took his passionate leadership of the solar industry all the way to the halls of Congress, arguing for tax benefits that would allow renewable energy to be competitive with fossil fuels. Newt was also prescient in his advocacy for electric automobiles, serving as Chairman of the Board of Electrical Fuel, a company that made batteries for electric cars.
      Educator and entrepreneur, Newt was also a visionary and philanthropist. … Heavily influenced by Eric Hoffer’s seminal work, The True Believer, Newt became a major funder and lay leader of organizations that battled such extremism.”

  • Founded in 1942. Today more than $800 million in assets.
  • History of the Bradley Foundation as described in ISGP’s Pilgrims Society article: “The Olin Foundation [which included Pilgrim as key Rockefeller man John McCloy] hasn’t been the only important conservative financier in existence with peculiar Eastern Establishment ties. One of its chief partners has been the Bradley Foundation, which in 1985 all of a sudden became very relevant when its assets jumped from $14 million to $290 million overnight.
    Apart from their very similar funding activities, the Olin and Bradley foundations were particularly closely linked through Michael Joyce, the executive director of the Olin Foundation from 1979 to 1985 and then the president of the Bradley Foundation from 1985 to 2001.
    Looking at his other NGO involvement, Joyce, a Knight of Malta, was particularly close to [Pilgrims Society executive] William Simon, a fellow Knight of Malta and premier Olin Foundation chief; CIA asset and neocon godfather Irving Kristol, also a close partner of William Simon; Irving’s equally influential Jewish neocon son Bill Kristol; and the Bush 43 administration, for which, in 2001, Joyce set up the Americans for Community and Faith-Centered Enterprise. Joyce also was a signer of the PNAC statement of principles, along with scores of neocons. [247]
    True, in contrast to the closely-allied Olin Foundation, the Bradley Foundation really didn’t have any Eastern Establishment-linked individuals on the board except, maybe, Michael Joyce. In fact, most names aren’t particularly recognizable.”

Gleason Family Foundation

  • Involves the David and Charles Koch Foundations, the latter seemingly the most active. The family’s wealth is derived from Koch Industries, focused at oil refining and chemical processing.
  • Charles Koch Foundation: Founded in 1990 by the libertarian-inclined Charles Koch, who, by June 2018, had a reported estimated net worth of $50.7 billion, making him the 8th wealthest person in the world. Koch has been co-owner, chairman, and chief executive officer of Koch Industries since 1967. In the mid 2010s he sat on the national council of the American Enterprise Institute.
  • David Koch Foundation: David Koch serves as executive vice president of Koch Industries.

  • Established in 2004 by computer scientist. Didn’t become active politically on the conservative front until about 2008, at which point Mercer’s conservative daughter started taking control. By 2015 the foundation had a net worth of $24.5 million, but this appears to have increased since.
  • Fortune based on the work of computer scientist Robert Mercer, an AI developer at IBM in from the early 1970s to mid 1993. The last IBM project he was working on involved automatic translation program, which would later be incorporated in Google Translate. He received DARPA financing for it:
    • March 27, 2017, The New Yorker, ‘The Reclusive Hedge-Fund Tycoon Behind the Trump Presidency; How Robert Mercer exploited America’s populist insurgency’: “When I.B.M. failed to offer adequate support for Mercer and Brown’s translation project, they secured additional funding from DARPA, the secretive Pentagon program. Despite Mercer’s disdain for “big government,” this funding was essential to his early success.”
  • In mid 1993 he joined Renaissance Technologies, a very successful technology-oriented hedge fund that benefited enormously from trading algoritm’s developed by Mercer, who eventually became co-CEO. Despite this, forced to step down in November 2017, after the Trump election and Brexit, after media controversy (in part through a Democrat Jew working at his firm) over his political stances. Mercer’s fortune is estimated at several hundred million dollars.
  • Mercer has been an anti-government Libertarian and a huge supporter of anti-Democrat and anti-Clinton conspiracy (theories) since the 1990s that were financed by the Scaife foundations in particular. Mercer was reading the Scaife-funded American Spectator at the time, but it is not known to what extent he was part of the same network at the time.
    • March 27, 2017, The New Yorker, ‘The Reclusive Hedge-Fund Tycoon Behind the Trump Presidency; How Robert Mercer exploited America’s populist insurgency’: “One of Trump’s biggest financial backers: Robert Mercer, a reclusive Long Island hedge-fund manager… Caddell told me that Mercer “is a libertarian—he despises the Republican establishment,” and added, “He thinks that the leaders are corrupt crooks, and that they’ve ruined the country.” … People who know him say that he is painfully awkward socially, and rarely speaks. …
      During Bill Clinton’s Presidency, [Mercer recruiter at Renaissance Nick] Patterson recalled, Mercer insisted at a staff luncheon that Clinton had participated in a secret drug-running scheme with the C.I.A. The plot supposedly operated out of an airport in Mena, Arkansas. “Bob told me he believed that the Clintons were involved in murders connected to it,” Patterson said. Two other sources told me that, in recent years, they had heard Mercer claim that the Clintons have had opponents murdered.
      The Mena story is one of several dark fantasies put forth in the nineties by The American Spectator, an archconservative magazine. According to Patterson, Mercer read the publication at the time. David Brock, a former Spectator writer who [switched camps and no is a Ford Foundation-funded “liberal CIA” propagandist at Media Matters is now a liberal activist, told me that the alleged Mena conspiracy was based on a single dubious source, and was easily disproved by flight records. …
      Patterson also recalled Mercer arguing that, during the Gulf War, the U.S. should simply have taken Iraq’s oil, “since it was there.” … Another onetime senior employee at Renaissance recalls hearing Mercer downplay the dangers posed by nuclear war. Mercer, speaking of the atomic bombs that the U.S. dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, argued that, outside of the immediate blast zones, the radiation actually made Japanese citizens healthier. The National Academy of Sciences has found no evidence to support this notion. Nevertheless, according to the onetime employee, Mercer, who is a proponent of nuclear power, “was very excited about the idea, and felt that it meant nuclear accidents weren’t such a big deal.” …
      Mercer, for his part, has argued that the Civil Rights Act, in 1964, was a major mistake. According to the onetime Renaissance employee, Mercer has asserted repeatedly that African-Americans were better off economically before the civil-rights movement. (Few scholars agree.) …
      Patterson clashed with him over climate change; Mercer said that concerns about it were overblown. After Patterson shared with him a scientific paper on the subject, Mercer and his brother, Randall, who also worked at the hedge fund, sent him a paper by a scientist named Arthur Robinson, who is a biochemist [and a hardcore Christian conservative in every way], not a climate expert. “It looked like a scientific paper, but it was completely loaded with selective and biased information,” Patterson recalled. …
      Magerman told the Wall Street Journal that Mercer’s political opinions “show contempt for the social safety net that he doesn’t need, but many Americans do.” He also said that Mercer wants the U.S. government to be “shrunk down to the size of a pinhead.” Several former colleagues of Mercer’s said that his views are akin to Objectivism, the philosophy of Ayn Rand. Magerman told me, “Bob believes that human beings have no inherent value other than how much money they make.””
  • From 2009 to 2013, Mercer donated $50,000 annually to the powerful Council for National Policy, apparently making him the largest and consistent donor to this group in this period. In 2014 the amount was lowered to $25,000. After that, no more donations were made. Thus, the total amount donated over 2009-2014 is $275,000. It is not clear if Mercer ever formally belonged to the CNP, as his name does not appear in a 2014 membership list.

  • In 2012, Council for National Policy member Steven Bannon, who followed up Andrew Breitbart that year as executive chairman of Breitbart News, started to (additionally) advise Robert Mercer and daughter Rebekah on political donations. Bannon persuaded the Mercers to invest $10 million in Breitbart.

      Mrs. Kellyanne Conway, Esq.”
    • March 27, 2017, The New Yorker, ‘The Reclusive Hedge-Fund Tycoon Behind the Trump Presidency; How Robert Mercer exploited America’s populist insurgency’: “As far back as 2012, Bannon was the Mercers’ de-facto political adviser. … It was Bannon who urged the Mercers to invest in a data-analytics firm. He also encouraged the investment in Breitbart News. … He put ten million dollars into Breitbart News, which was conceived as a conservative counterweight to the Huffington Post. … In an interview, Bannon praised the Mercers’ strategic approach: “The Mercers laid the groundwork for the Trump revolution. Irrefutably, when you look at donors during the past four years, they have had the single biggest impact of anybody, including the Kochs.” …
      Bannon and Rebekah Mercer have become particularly close political partners. Last month, when Bannon denounced “the corporatist, globalist media” at the Conservative Political Action Conference, in his first public appearance since entering the White House, Rebekah Mercer was part of his entourage. … The Wall Street Journal has described Bannon joking and swearing on the deck of the Mercers’ yacht, the Sea Owl, as if he were a member of the family. …
      [On the advice of Bannon] Mercer also invested some five million dollars in Cambridge Analytica, a firm that mines online data to reach and influence potential voters. … The firm, which is the American affiliate of Strategic Communication Laboratories, in London, has worked for candidates whom Mercer has backed, including Trump. It also reportedly worked on the Brexit campaign, in the United Kingdom [in donating services to Nigel Farage]. … In promotional materials, S.C.L. has claimed to know how to use such data to wage both psychological and political warfare. “
  • In 2014 Rebekah Mercer joined the board of the powerful Heritage Foundation, tied to CIA-linked groups as the Council for National Policy, Opus Dei, the Knights of Malta and Le Cercle. From 1985 to until his death (from cancer) in July 2014 Richard Mellon Scaife was a trustee of the Heritage Foundation, since at least the early 1990s as a vice chairman. This is the person who financed the “Arkansas Project” against the Clintons that Robert Mercer had been such a fan of. Rebekah Mercer actually actually was the first new trustee to be brought on-board of the Heritage Foundation after Scaife’s death, indicating the Heritage Foundation was looking for a new, long-term, reliable financier – and that the Mercers became it.

  • In September 2018 Rebekah Mercer and her sister Jennifer “Jenji” Mercer joined the board of overseers of the “freedom and free enterprise”-focused Hoover Institution, a traditional home of George Shultz and his chief protege Condoleezza Rice, as well as the likes of Rupert Murdoch.

A five-member board of directors meets each February to consider proposals submitted the previous fall and award grants. At its last gathering, the foundation pledged about $1.8 million.”
  • Thomas Roe was one of the early financiers of the Knights of Malta-, Opus Dei- and Cercle Pinay-linked Heritage Foundation, alongside the Coors and Scaife family foundations.

    • May 2007, Capital Research Center’s Foundation Watch, ‘Safeguarding a Conservative Donor’s Intent: The Roe Foundation at 39’: “In 1986, Roe started the South Carolina Policy Council. It was one of several state-based think tanks formed independently at about this time. Others included the Independence Institute in Colorado, the Heartland Institute in Illinois, and the Mackinac Center for Public Policy in Michigan. Starting in 1987, these organizations began meeting regularly as the Madison Group (so named because they gathered at the Madison Hotel in Washington, D.C.) to trade information and discuss strategies. Roe believed that these get-togethers were so helpful that they should be formalized through a professional association that would host annual conferences, provide services, and improve communications among its members. In 1992, the State Policy Network was born. Roe was a major financial supporter of the network and its founding chairman.”

  • The foundation of Donald Rumsfeld, founded in 2007, immediately after Rumsfeld stepped down after secretary of defense.
  • Rumsfeld is a top superclass member with involvement in dozens of leading NGOs. His best friend since college is fellow superclass member Frank Carlucci, a CIA deputy director and secretary of defens, who became chairman of the notorious Bin Laden family-tied Carlyle Group, which also employed George H. W. Bush. Rumsfeld is most notorious for being 9/11’s secretary of defense who went AWOL during the entirety of the attack, simply watching CNN alone in his office from before the second impact until the third strike hit his Pentagon building on the other side.
  • Back in the 1990s, until 2000, Rumsfeld sat on the board of governors of the H. Smith Richardson Foundation, together with Zbigniew Brzezinski, Samuel Huntington and Fred Ikle.

Scaife Foundations (Mellon)

  • Foundation set up in 1998 by Daniel C. Searle, the CEO and president of G. D. Searle & Co 1970-1977, and chairman 1977-1985. During the 1977-1985 Donald Rumsfeld (Donald Rumsfeld Foundation) served as CEO and president. In the period, Rumsfeld decreased the number of employers with 60%, while the company started bringing the controversial aspartame sweetener to the market.

H. Smith Richardson Foundation

John Templeton Foundation

  • The Uihlein family, consisting of David V. Uihlein Sr. (1920-2010) and now David V. Uihlein Jr. and cousin Richard “Dick” Uihlein, is regularly mentioned as a “GOP megadonor”.
    • June 7, 2018, New York Times, ‘The Most Powerful Conservative Couple You’ve Never Heard Of’: “Few political donors are as influential, yet little known, as Liz and Dick Uihlein. The Midwestern couple has joined the upper pantheon of Republican donors alongside names like Koch, Mercer and Adelson. They have spent roughly $26 million on the current [Trump] election cycle, supporting more than 60 congressional candidates, working outside the party establishment to advance a combative, hard-right conservatism, from Washington to the smallest town.”
  • In reality, the family falls under the Bradley Foundation umbrella:
    • David V. Uihlein Sr.: Married into the Bradley family in 1945. His son, David V. Uihlein Jr., is a grandson of Bradley Foundation founder David Bradley and became vice chairman of the Bradley foundation in 2006.
  • Richard “Dick” Uihlein (b. 1945): Great-grandson of Edward Uihlein, a Princeton graduate and a member of the family that founded the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company in 1849 (defunct in 1999) (the Uihleins were nephews of founder August Krug). Son of Edgar John Uihlein, Sr. (1877-1956), who was a vice-president and director of the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company (same company David Vogel Uihlein Sr. became a director of in 1972), and Paula Huck, a member of Chicago’s Marshall Field family (Marshall Field company was a co-founder of the American Security Council in the 1954). joined the national council of the American Enterprise Institute.
  • More family history:
    • 1976, New York Times, ”: “Robert A. Uihlein Jr., chairman and chief executive officer of the Jos. Schlitz Brewing Company and a member of one of the country’s most prominent brewing and banking families, died Friday night at Milwaukee County Medical Complex…
      Mr. Uihlein, who was once described as “one of the beer barons who made Milwaukee famous,” was the fourth generation of his family to head the 127year-old Schlitz company. His great-great uncle, August Krug, founded the company in Milwaukee in 1849, and it grew into what has been described as the nation’s second largest brewing concern. … When Mr. Uihlein became president of Schlitz in 1961, he succeeded his uncle, Erwin C. Uihlein, who was named chairman. …
      He graduated from Phillips [Exeter] Academy at Andover, Mass., in 1934, from Harvard University… He was a trustee of the Milwaukee Art Center, a member of the National Business Committee for the Arts and a director of the New York Philharmonic.”


  • Protectionist-oriented, right-wing, independent presidential candidate in 1992. Eventually received 19% of the vote. During the campaign, Perot sometimes garnered higher poll numbers than Bush. However, after dropping out, only to re-enter later, his popularity never recovered.
  • Third party presidential candidate in 1996, for which he created his Reform Party of the United States in 1995. Received 8% of the vote during the election.
  • Prominently anti-NAFTA — which, by the way, destroyed the Mexican economy, turned it into a failed narco-controlled state, and pushed millions upon millions of Mexicans into the U.S.
  • Member of the super-elite Alfalfa Club.
  • Ross Perot has been partying for many years at this point with CIA directors and special operations commanders at the OSS Society, of which Perot has been a donor and honorary co-chair.
    • October 2, 2010, OSS Society booklet, ‘William J. Donovan Award Dinner Honoring Ross Perot’: “Honorary Chairmen: Porter J. Goss … James R. Schlesinger. William H. Webster. President George H.W. Bush. Amb. William J. vanden Heuvel. Ross Perot. … R. James Woolsey.”
  • Perot’s Reform Party is dominated by “liberal CIA” and “conservative CIA” veterans, including as Rockefeller greener Ralph Nader, conspiracy disinformer Jesse Ventura, and former CIA officer and present conspiracy theorist Robert Steele. In fact, in 1999-2000 Donald Trump was a candidate for Perot’s Reform Party as well.

  • Billionaire businessman who was elected as an anti-immigration “populist” U.S. president in November 2016.
  • Similar to all international “anti-establishment”, anti-immigration populists, in 2017, according to Pew, Trump received only 5% positive news (probably just Fox News and a few “alt-right” outlets). Even more telling, 62% of all coverage has been negative, with only a relatively small margin left for neutral news. With Obama it was largely the reverse (worship), with coverage on Clinton and Bush – both tied into the globalist superclass and thus agree on open borders and conspiracy suppression – being in balance. A 2018 study, although less neutral, showed even worse numbers for Trump (although very recognizable):
    • October 10, 2018,, ‘Media Trump Hatred Shows In 92% Negative Coverage Of His Presidency: Study’: “For its report, the [Bradley, Scaife, etc.-funded] Media Research Center did a lot of visual spadework. It viewed some 1,007 evening news stories about the Trump White House on ABC, CBS and NBC from June 1 to Sept. 30. That’s the equivalent of about 32.7 hours of coverage, by TV standards an eternity of news time.
      What they found was, as Trump himself might say, sad: “Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a president in TV news history — 92% negative, vs. just 8% positive.”
      Moreover, the very focus of what the media cover is highly selective. Some two-thirds of the Trump coverage came from five topics, including the Russia investigation, immigration, the Brett Kavanaugh nomination, North Korea, and U.S.-Russia relations. …
      Over the four months the MRC watched network TV for all of us, less than 1% of the coverage was on the economy. To be more precise, it was 0.7% of the entire coverage, or 14 minutes.”
  • Trump’s Rockefeller elite ties:
    • May 9, 2007, The Guardian, ‘Happy Birthday Barbara’: “Court documents in America have shed new light on an infamous surprise 60th birthday party thrown by Lord Black for his wife, Barbara Amiel, in December 2000… Lord Black [Bilderberg steering committee, Pilgrims Society, 1001 Club, etc.; his Hollinger board contained just about every elite] … was surrounded by the Vogue editor Anna Wintour … Sir Evelyn de Rothschild’s spouse, Lynn [Forester de Rothschild], and Henry Ford II’s widow, Kate. … Lord Weidenfeld was there – as was [Nelson Rockefeller widow] Happy Rockefeller… Michael Bloomberg … Donald Lauder ($3bn) [and] Leonard Lauder … Mort Zuckerman … Alfred Taubman … Arriana von Hohenlohe and Ahmet Ertegun … Barbara Walter ate with Drue Heinz, widow of the ketchup boss HJ Heinz II… New York Review of Books’ founder Robert Silvers, the legendary gossip columnist Aileen Mehle who used to go by the pen-name “Suzy” [with her column syndicated to 100 newspapers] and Midge Decter…
      [Barbara’s] table included … Henry Kissinger, who was a Hollinger director… They exchanged pleasantries with Donald Trump, the news anchor Peter Jennings who subsequently died in 2005, the former New Yorker editor Tina Brown and Bill Clinton’s one-time close adviser Vernon Jordan. …
      Oscar de la Renta passed the time with Robert Maxwell’s daughter, Ghislaine, and a prominent New York chat show host, Charlie Rose. … Jeffrey Epstein, a mobile phones millionaire on table three…
      Hedge fund pioneer Dixon Boardman rubbed shoulders with private equity tycoons John Veronis and Don Marron… The late editor of Time magazine, Henry Grunwald, sat alongside Elaine Wolfensohn [James Wolfensohn’s wife]…
      Lord Black invited his Spectator columnist Taki Theodoracopulos… Richard Perle…”
    • May 16, 2019, BBC, ‘Conrad Black: Trump pardons ex-media baron ‘friend”: “Black, 74, was convicted of fraud and obstructing justice in 2007 and jailed for more than three years in the US.”
  • Red flags pointing to Trump being a “conservative CIA” asset:
    • Trump’s father was close to the CIA- and DOD-dominated American Security Council favorite Barry Goldwater, whose network of national security operatives turned (rabidly) pro-Israel neocon in the late 1970s.
    • Trump and his father also were close to Jewish lawyer Roy Cohn, a director of the neocon national security-dominated Western Goals Foundation, which overlapped with the CIA- and DOD-dominated American Security Council, Le Cercle and the OSS Society. The controversial Roger Stone met Donald Trump in 1979 through Roy Cohn, while Stone was working for the Reagan campaign.
    • In 1999-2000 Trump was a candidate for the bizarre Reform Party of Ross Perot, who has been partying for many years at this point with CIA directors and special operations commanders at the OSS Society, of which Perot is a co-chair. The Reform Party is dominated by “liberal CIA” and “conservative CIA” veterans, including as Rockefeller greener Ralph Nader, conspiracy disinformer Jesse Ventura, and former CIA officer and present conspiracy theorist Robert Steele.
    • Trump has always been very prominent and very popular in entertainment circles, which are 100% Democrat. In line with this, Trump has also always been more liberal than during the campaign that made him president:
      • October 24, 1999, Donald Trump on Meet the Press: “I’m, very pro-choice. I hate the concept of abortion. I hate it. I hate everything it stands for. I cringe when I listen to people debating the subject. But you still, I just believe in choice. And again, it may be a little bit of a New York background because there is some different attitude in different parts of the country, and you know I was raised in New York and grew up and work and everything else in New York City. And I am strongly for choice, and yet I hate the concept of abortion.”
      • May 7, 2016, New York Times, ‘A Trump Sampler: His Changing Views’ (not nearly as bad as the New York Times makes it out to be): “2012: “Hillary Clinton I think is a terrific woman. I am biased because I have known her for years. … I really like her and her husband both a lot. …
        1999: “I would tax people of wealth, of great wealth, people over $10 million, by 14.25 percent [note: that’s almost nothing really for European standards].” …
        [March 2015:] “I hate the concept of [refugees], but on a humanitarian basis with what’s happening, you have to.” [quickly changed this]…
        2000: “I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun.””
    • In 2004 Trump was looking to run as a Democrat with the curious Jesse Ventura as his running mate.
      • January 7, 2018, The Guardian, ‘Woody Harrelson: ‘I used to have my head up my ass”: “He met the president once, when his friend, [later conspiracy disinformer] Jesse Ventura, was governor of Minnesota and Trump was hoping he’d become his running mate, on the Democrat ticket, in the 2004 election.”
    • Dee Snider, a friend of Donald Trump, described him as always having been a Democrat and Rockefeller Republican (i.e., a globalist):
      • December 10, 2015,, ‘Dee Snider May Stop Donald Trump From Using ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It”: “I know the man’s not a racist. He’s a friend of mine. But when you’ve got white supremacy groups aligning themselves with you and you don’t denounce them […] that’s a problem for me. … I have to call Donald. … My Donald Trump is pro-choice. My Donald Trump is what they call a Northeastern [Rockefeller] Republican, you know, fiscally conservative, socially liberal. But that’s changing.”
    • Operated the Donald J. Trump Foundation from 1988 to 2019. It was pretty much a-political, even donating to the Clinton Foundation. The first conservative donation, to the Billy Graham Evangelical Association was made in 2012, but even in 2015, the year Trump’s presidential campaign started, his foundation did not reflect any major conservative bias. He has given token-support to a handful of (national security-tied) conservative NGOs, but it has all been really mild:
      • August 28, 2016,, ‘Says “Donald Trump himself contributed $100,000” to the Clinton Foundation.’: “It’s not clear if Trump himself made a personal contribution, but tax forms show that the Donald J. Trump Foundation (which Trump controls) donated $100,000 to the foundation in 2009 and reserved a table at the Clinton Foundation gala for $10,000 in 2010.
        Trump’s daughter Ivanka is also listed as a donor who gave between $5,001 and $10,000 and her father-in-law, Charles Kushner, gave between $250,001 and $500,000.
        Trump’s gift amount places him in the top 0.2 percent of the foundation’s donors. Most of its 300,000 donors (85.5 percent) gave less than $250.”
      • 2010 Form 990, Trump Foundation: “[All non-political donations:] NASCAR Foundation … NFL Care Foundation … New York Presbyterian Hospital: … $100,000… DNA Foundation: … $10,000… Palm Beach Police Foundation: … $100,000. … [except:] William J. Clinton Foundation: … $10,000.”
      • 2014 Form 990, Trump Foundation: “[Mostly non-political:] Anti-Defamation League: … $26,500 … Citizens United Foundation [conservative group ran by David Bossie, who became Trump’s Deputy campaign manager in 2016]: … $100,000 [used to attack an opponent of Trump]. … Special Operations Warrior Foundation: … $5,000. … The Economic Club of Washington D.C.: .. $6,000. … UJA-Federation: … $15,000.”
      • 2015 Form 990, Trump Foundation: Media Research Center: … $5,000. … Project Veritas: … $10,000 [and] $10,000. … The American Spectator Foundation: … $5,000.”
    • In contrast to past and present Republican leaders, Trump very uniquely represents conservative “anti-establishment”, controlled opposition networks (the fake news-dominated Old Right / Alt-Right / Libertarian Right), the most prominent example being CIA-tied conspiracy disinformation guru Alex Jones. This is basically the only network allowed by the establishment that is anti-Third World immigration.
    • However, Trump has also been supported by a combination of national security-obsessed neocons, including former CIA director James Woolsey, the number 2 in ISGP’s Superclass Index, and his first national security advisor, General Mike Flynn. Pre-Trump election Flynn sat on the board of the neocon anti-Islamic immigration group Act! for America, together with Woolsey and other hardcore neocons as Gen. Paul Vallely, Robert Spencer and John Loftus. ALl these individuals are disliked by the so-called “alt-right”.
    • Trump’s initial secretary of state in 2017 and early 2018, Rex Tillerson, chair and CEO of ExxonMobil from 2006 to 2017, came with a long-set of elite Bush era recommendations:
      • December 14, 2016, Politico, ‘Rex Tillerson’s 3 a.m. phone call’: “The nomination came packaged with supportive statements from [Bush era administration officials] Robert Gates, [key George Shultz protege now at the Hoover Institution and such] Condoleezza Rice and Stephen Hadley — a trio of George W. Bush-era heavyweights who represent the Republican Party’s realist wing. (Their consulting firm, RiceHadleyGates, has done work for Exxon.) Tillerson also has the strong backing of former Vice President Dick Cheney [a former vice chair and more recent ordinary trustee of the American Enterprise Institute], a longtime confidant of the Exxon chief’s predecessor, Lee Raymond [chair and CEO ExxonMobile 1993-2006 and vice chair American Enterprise Institute], and an avowed foe of the realists.
        Accounts depict Tillerson, a personal friend of arch-dealmaker James Baker, as an aggressive but polished negotiator, the kind of wheeler-dealer Trump sees in the mirror. “He’s ruthless,” said a former Western diplomat who has dealt with him. “But not like Raymond. That guy was fucking ruthless.”
    • In April 2018 infamous pro-Israel neocon John Bolton became Trump’s national security advisor. Bolton used to be senior vice president of the American Enterprise Institute and a signer of the Project for the New American Century before he entered the Bush administration.
    • Due to Trump’s sudden evangelical positions, the Christian extremists of the Council for National Policy and formerly American Security Council – which are allied with the Zionist neocons – also came on board with Trump. Betsy DeVos as
    • Trump’s initial CIA director 2017-2018 and then secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, came from the Koch brothers-partnered Sentry International, of which he was president. Even before that, he was a co-founder (with other West Point graduates) of Thayer Aerospace, in which Koch Industries had a small stake. Clients of the firm included Raytheon and Lockheed.
    • Trump’s initial national security advisor, General Mike Flynn, and son, were pushing the completely bogus Pizzagate affair right before the elections – and even after it. Alex Jones and other CIA-tied conspiracy disinformers were doing the exact same thing, of course.
    • Stephen Miller: Senior policy advisor to the Trump campaign on trade and immigration. Senior Advisor to the President Jan. 2017-.
      • Background: Russian-Jewish heritage. Born in 1985. In his teens, he tried to get David Horowitz to speak at Santa Monica High School and then Duke University. President of the Duke chapter of David Horowitz’s Students for Academic Freedom. Accused poet Maya Angelou, a darling of the liberal left and George Soros, of “racial paranoia” while at Duke. At Duke he also helped fellow Duke Conservative Union member Richard Spencer, the future prominent Nazi backing Trump, with developing his immigration policy. Spencer later claimed he mentored Miller at Duke, but Miller, while working for Trump, stone-cold denied this. Miller worked for Steve Bannon during the Trump campaign and presidency.
    • Trump has pushed a ton of bizarre conspiracy disinformation himself over the years, much of it also pushed by conspiracy disinformation outlets as Alex Jones’ Infowars and Rense, such as vaccines, Obama’s birth certificate, Scalia’s death, climate change, etc.
      • September 13, 2018,, ’19 outlandish conspiracy theories Donald Trump has floated on the campaign trail and in the White House’:
        – Questions about Ted Cruz’s father’s potential ties to President John F. Kennedy’s assassin. …
        – Questions about President Obama’s birth certificate. …
        – Questions about a former Bill Clinton aide’s suicide… Vince Foster…
        – Questions about Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death. …
        – Questions about whether childhood vaccines cause autism. …
        – Questions about the legitimacy of climate change. …
        – Questions about whether asbestos is a “great con.” … [1992:] “One of the great cons is asbestos,” Trump said. “There’s nothing wrong except the mob has a strong lobby in Albany because they have the dumps and control the truck.” Trump has more recently embraced the reality. …
        – Claims that Joe Scarborough killed one of his interns … “And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!” …
        – Claims that voter fraud in the 2016 election cost him the popular vote…
        – Retweeting anti-Muslim conspiracy videos. In November 2017, Trump caused diplomatic havoc by retweeting three videos posted by Jayda Fransen of the ultra-nationalist, anti-Muslim organization Britain First that purportedly showed Muslims in Europe committing crimes and destroying Christian icons. [note: Trump could easily have retweeted videos not tied to Britain First]…
        – Claims 3,000 people didn’t die in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria and that Democrats inflated the death toll.”
      • July 31, 2019, The Daily Beast, ‘Twitter Suspends Conspiracy Account After Trump Retweet’: “Trump retweeted the account, which used the display name “LYNN THOMAS” and the handle @LYNNTHO06607841… Before the suspension, the account enthusiastically pushed Qanon conspiracy memes [such as North Korea’s leader being controlled by the CIA] and bizarre theories about prominent Democrats murdering children to harvest their pineal glands.”
      • January 2, 2020, Daily Beast, ‘Trump Throws Fresh Fuel on Dangerous QAnon Conspiracy Theory’: “Late last week, Trump … retweeted a message of support containing the “WWG1WGA” hashtag, a reference to a QAnon motto. In total, Trump retweeted QAnon fans more than 20 times on the same day.”
      • Keeps pushing the Epstein-was-murdered line, similar to conspiracy disinformation assets all over the net, from Alex Jones to Joe Rogan:
        • August 4, 2020, CNN, ‘Trump defends wishing Ghislaine Maxwell well and questions if Epstein’s death was suicide’: “”Well, first of all you don’t know that [if she is guilty [Trump is being weird here, because the reporter only said that Maxwell stands accused],” Trump said to the allegations of child sex trafficking. “Her friend or boyfriend [Jeffrey Epstein, whom Trump knew] was either killed or committed suicide. She’s now in jail. Yeah, I wish her well [. I’d wish you well. I’d wish a lot of people well. Good luck. Let them prove somebody was guilty. …
          “Her boyfriend died in jail and people are still trying to figure out, how did it happen? Was it suicide? Was he killed? And I do wish her well. I’m not looking for anything bad for her.”
    • Meanwhile, Trump hasn’t reopened the 9/11 investigation related to the 9/11 Commission and NIST. In fact, on 9/11 itself he was among those claiming/suspecting explosives brought down the WTC. Meanwhile, he has refused to release all remaining files on the JFK assassination.
      • April 27, 2018, AP, ‘Trump boasted he’d open all JFK files, but now says he can’t’.
    • Like other international “populists”, Trump refuses to rationally bring up ethnic crime numbers, racial IQ, or immigration-related poll statistics that will empower the masses with facts and force globalists to somehow counter with facts instead of purely appealing to or ridiculing with emotion.
    • Trump did not expose that a “liberal CIA” Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-financed federal judge blocked his Muslim immigration ban. In fact, only ISGP has reported this fact.
    • Trump has also not been effective for the time being with his number 1 promise: to build a wall on the southern border. Instead of using his presidential power to push through funding for the wall, he has allowed Democrats to shut down the government.
    • He has not properly distance himself from the Nazi and white supremacist protests, nor does he ever point to evidence of controlled opposition with this movement.
    • Apart from all this and the media bias against him, Trump most certainly makes a huge amount of questionable and irrational comments. He’s extremely self-absorbed and out-of-touch in many ways.

  • Trump’s initial pick as national security advisor in 2016. Only served for 22 days in January and February 2017, being almost instantly ousted over the Trump-Russia collusion charges that in the end – predictably – were simply not true. Why Flynn didn’t just admit to the legal conversation with the Russian ambassador to ease existing tensions with the outgoing Obama administration still is not known.
    • February 19, 2020, USA Today, ‘If Michael Flynn’s ‘crime’ is all Robert Mueller has, it is time to move on’: “On Friday, President Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about a perfectly legal conversation he had during the presidential transition with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak [advising Putin not to overreact to Obama-imposed sanctions, because Trump wouldn’t take the same line]. … Flynn should not have lied, and why he chose to remains a mystery…
      The Trump transition team feared, for good reason, that the lame-duck Obama administration was poisoning the well with Russia, and pursuing spiteful anti-Israel policies on the way out the door. Trump asked Flynn, his soon-to-be national security adviser, to open a semi-official channel to Russia through its ambassador to discuss future cooperative efforts against the Islamic State and the United Nations vote on an anti-Israel resolution. As lawyer Alan Dershowitz argued, “Not only was that request not criminal, it was the right thing to do.” …
      This was not, for example, on the level of colluding with shadowy Russian intelligence contacts to create disinformation to try to swing the election, as the authors of the Clinton-connected Trump smear dossier did. …
      We have come down quite a way from the hyperventilation about Russia “hacking the election” a year ago. What happened to Democratic Sen. Mark Warner’s claim, later promoted by Hillary Clinton, that there were 1,000 Russian agents planting anti-Hillary fake news stories in key swing states? Or that Russians had delivered Wisconsin to Trump? All the conspiracy theorists have so far are a few Facebook ads that can’t credibly be shown to have changed even one vote.”
  • As a “conservative CIA” actor, similar to Alex Jones and Donald Trump, Flynn manipulates the Christian conservative movement:
    • August 5, 2020,, ‘Exclusive from Gen. Flynn: This Is My Letter to America’: “It’s Marxism in the form of antifa and the Black Lives Matter movement versus our very capable and very underappreciated law enforcement professionals, the vast majority of whom are fighting to provide us safe and secure homes, streets and communities. …
      As Christians, shouldn’t we act? We recognize that divine Providence is the ultimate judge of our destiny. … Action is … required in the economic, media, clerical and ecclesiastical realms. Churches and houses of worship must return to normal.”
  • This also explains why Flynn and his son were such adamant pushers of the bogus Pizzagate affair during the Trump campaign of 2016.
  • Flynn has countless elite ties:
    • Close to George Shultz through the advisory board of Spirit of America. Shultz was on the board from 2010 into the 2020s. Flynn was on the board from late 2015 to mid 2016, before getting involved in the Trump campaign. His close friend, general Stanley McChrystal was on the board from 2012 into the 2020s. General Jim Mattis – familiar with Shultz (and Kissinger) through the Hoover Institution as well – was on this board from mid 2016 to January 2017, when he became Trump’s secretary of derfense. General H.R. McMaster, Trump’s national security advisor in 2017 and 2018, joined the advisory board of Spirit of America in 2019.
    • Close to top neocon James Woolsey, the former CIA director, through shared membership of the advisory boiard of ACT! for America in mid 2016, when both started talking to Trump, with Flynn becoming the most visible supporter.
    • Long-time friend of General Stanley McChrystal and General David Petraeus, both rapidly rising in ISGP’s Superclass Index – and both great opponents of Trump.
      • Protege of General Stanley McChrystal, himself a protege of future CIA director David Petraeus. Director of intelligence for Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) in Afghanistan and Iraq July 2004 – June 2007, under General Stanley McChrystal, the commanding general of JSOC September 2003 – February 2006 and commander until August 2008. Flynn then was director of intelligence, United States Central Command, 2007-2008. Director of intelligence, Joint Staff, July 2008 – June 2009, with McChrystal serving as director of the Joint Staff August 2008 – June 2009. Director of intelligence, International Security Assistance Force, Afghanistan 2009-2010, again under McChrystal.

  • Vice president of Goldman Sachs 1987-1989, tasked with expanding the bank’s business in the entertainment industry. Founder and head of Bannon & Co., which specialized in media deals, 1990-1998. Best-known for having a stake in the wildly popular Seinfeld comedy series. Producer of 18 films, including Sean Penn’s drama The Indian Runner (1991).
  • Co-founder of Breitbart in 2007 and became chairman of the “alt right” news outlet in 2012, after Andrew Breitbart’s death.
  • Member of the powerful Council for National Policy before Trump was in sight as presidential candidate:
    • 2014 Membership Directory, Council for National Policy, p. 19, 45: “Mr. Stephen K. Bannon … Contact Information. Email [email protected]

  • Along with Andrew Breitbart, a dominant force in the Friends of Abe, Hollywood’s only organized conservative opposition to the dominant liberal elite here. While opposing George Soros and Third World immigration, Friends of Abe also tend to be extremely militaristic and have included prominent Holocaust deniers and conspiracy disinformers among its ranks. To summarize: Friends of Abe is/was controlled oposition.
  • Closely allied with Robert and Rebekah Mercer and their Mercer Family Foundation, through which he played a major role in getting Trump elected to the White House in November 2016.
  • Chief strategist of the Trump White House January – August 2017. Eventually he was dismissed in the week after the curious Unite the Right rally.
  • Already in January 2017 Bannon was a founder of The Movement, an attempt to unite all North American and European “populist” parties – specifically in opposition to George Soros. Bannon’s attempt was largely rejected though, being seen as a U.S. attempt to control the populist movement.

  • Political advisor, lobbyist and dirty trickster for the political campaigns of Republicans as Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Jack Kemp and Bob Dole. Later also Donald Trump.
  • The favorite and famous modus operandi of Roger Stone is to “Attack, attack, attack. Never defend. Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattack.” It apears that this goes for the media as a whole when it comes to opposition to Third World immigration or certain conspiracies.
    • June 2, 2008, The New Yorker, ‘The Dirty Trickster: Campaign tips from the man who has done it all.’.
  • In a bizarre plot twist, Roger Stone, who has represented misfits (read: CIA-tied, including Arlen Specter in 1995 and Donald Trump in 2000) political candidates since the 1990s, resurfaced on the Alex Jones Show at at the time the Trump election was gathering steam. In this period, Stone also served as a political advisor to Trump, who would join Alex Jones on air on December 2, 2015. Stone continued as one of the most important Infowars contributors and a close Alex Jones friend for years after. Alex Jones, of course, comes from a CIA- and special forces-tied family, going back to the same American Security Council and Council for National Policy network that has been employing Roger Stone in the 1970s and 1980s.
    • November 9, 2015, Alex Jones Show: the first, or one of the first, appearances of Roger Stone on the Alex Jones Show. Jones is reminiscing how the two first met at a JFK memorial a few years before. At the time, Stone was pushing his Clinton affairs book.
    • December 22, 2018, Huffinton Post, ‘Twitter Users Can’t Unsee Alex Jones Feeding Roger Stone Helicopter-Style’.
    • January 25, 2019, The Week, ‘Roger Stone seemingly called Alex Jones at InfoWars before he even left prison’: “After being pulled out of his Florida home on seven charges from Special Counsel Robert Mueller and subsequently posting bond, Stone promptly called into Alex Jones’ show InfoWars to break down what happened.”
  • Early history of Roger Stone:
    • Born in 1952. Hungarian-Italian genes. Started his political campaigning through lies at the age of 8 while in elementary school: “I remember going through the cafeteria line and telling every kid that Nixon was in favor of school on Saturdays … It was my first political trick.”
    • Part of the 1964 political campaign of conservative political candidate and American Security Council hero Barry Goldwater.
    • In the late 1960s, a teenage Stone served as a protege of Connecticut governor John Davis Lodge, a (future) Pilgrims Society member and brother of Pilgrims Society executive and Vietnam War-era ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge. In 1967 John Davis Lodge introduced Stone to soon-to-be America’s president Richard Nixon, with whom he eventually would develop a close relationship.
    • By 1972, while a student at George Washington University, Stone was head of the District of Columbia’s Young Republicans chapter. After invited Jeb Magruder, the head of Nixon’s notorious Committee to Reelect the President (CRP, or mockingly, CREEP), Stone left the university to take a position here. At CREEP he worked alongside the infamous Watergate burglars leadership team: CIA operatives E. Howard Hunt (whose old CIA asset, William Buckley, Jr., founded the Cold War conservative movement through the National Review and the like) and James McCord, attorney general John N. Mitchell and former J. Edgar Hoover ghostwriter and Plumbers Unit founder G. Gordon Liddy. CREEP was running all kinds of dirty tricks, mainly against Democrats, such as the hiring of hippies to disrupt public conventions or having black activists call up people in the middle of the night.
      • July 22, 1973, New York Times, ‘Dirty Tricks’.
      • March 4, 2017, CNN (Library), ‘Watergate Fast Facts’.
      • July 22, 1973, New York Times, ‘Dirty Tricks’.
    • In December 1973, with the Watergate scandal heading to a climax, Stone went to work as an aide to Kansas senator Bob Dole, a favorite of Barry Goldwater and the American Security Council. Dole reluctantly booted Stone out in June 1974 after liberal columnist Jack Anderson exposed him as one of Nixon’s “dirty tricksters”. Within two months of the Stone’s exposure, Nixon is forced to step down as president of the United States over the Watergate affair. The operations of Stone were considered one of many sidetracks to the affair.
      • June 15, 1974, Garden City Telegram (Kansas), ‘Dole Charges ‘Dirty Tricks’ Info Leak’.
    • Stone claims that it was tough to get a job for about 2 years after Watergate, but his conservative allies continued to hire him. However, already in 1974, while getting fired as Bob Dole aide, Stone and his wife – whom he married in 1974 – were growing close to leading conservative fundraiser Richard Viguerie.
    • In 1975, Stone (alongside Vigueri and others) co-founded the National Conservative Political Action Committee (NCPAC), which would become one of the leading “new right” political fundraising and PR groups that would bring Reagan to power in 1980. Viguerie played a role in the group’s founding, with Stone ending up as NCPAC’s treasurer. In old literature, NCPAC is continually mentioned in on breath with the Josep Coors-funded Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress and a number of other ultraconservative groups that were opposing the Rockefeller Republicanism of Eisenhower and Gerald Ford (whose vice president was Nelson Rockefeller). Viguerie’s direct mail system was key in this group’s fundraining efforts. It does not appear to be known, however, what major interests directly funded Stone’s NCPAC.
      • 1983 Senate report, ‘Campaign Finance Reform Proposals of 1983’: “Mr. Viguerie was one of the founders of the National Conservative Political Action Committee in 1975, although the NCPAC founding group was substantially larger than the two-man team that set up Independent Action.”
      • June 16, 1986, Washington Post, ‘The Rise And Gall of Roger Stone’: “After [really “while”] serving as Ronald Reagan’s “youth director” in 1976, he became close to conservative fund-raiser Richard Viguerie. His wife was working for Viguerie at the time. [In 1975] with his friends Terry Dolan and Charlie Black, Stone formed the National Conservative Political Action Committee, serving as its treasurer.”
      • November 19, 1981, NY Books, ‘The Triumphs of the New Right’: “In 1979 and 1980 Jesse Helms’s Congressional Club raised a gross figure of $7.9 million, Terry Dolan’s National Conservative Political Action Committee [NCPAC] raised $7.6 million, Paul Weyrich’s Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress [CSFC; funded by Coors] raised $1.6 million, and the Gun Owners of America, a group to the right of the National Rifle Association [NRA], raised $1.4 million. All of these are Viguerie’s clients [of his direct mail business].
        Viguerie could claim to be the founder of the New Right, since it was he who brought the first circle of organizers together in 1974 for the purposes of creating a new conservative movement.”
      • 1988, Russ Bellant, ‘The Coors Connection’ (published by “liberal CIA”-funded group Political Research Associates), p. 16: “Weyrich, Viguerie, and Howard Phillips … were trying to create a new center of political action to the right of the Republican Party, which they saw as too moderate. … Viguerie, along with [Heritage Foundation co-founder – with Coors – and a Cercle Pinay visitor] Paul Weyrich and the late Terry Dolan of the National Conservative Political Action Committee (NCPAC), worked closely on campaigns and issues…”
      • May 1975 edition, Homefront magazine of the Institute for American Democracy, p. 25: “The Joseph Coors-backed Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress sent $5,000 to Dr. Ron Paul…”
    • In 1976 John Sears, a former Nixon presidential campaign strategist and later staffer, hired Stone as the national youth director for Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign against Gerald Ford and Ford’s vice president, Nelson Rockefeller. The campaign failed. In 1980 Reagan tried again, with John Sears halfway being replaced by none other than OSS veteran and future CIA director William Casey.
    • Also in 1976, Ann Stone, Roger Stone’s wife, who came out of Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), went to work for Viguerie Co., the earlier-mentioned key direct-mail corparation that Roger Stone’s NCPAC worked with. Ann still worked as Vigueri’s right hand in the 1980s, pushing the Contra (death squad) cause.
      • March 20, 1986, AP, ‘Conservatives Using 50s-Style ‘Soft on Communism’ Tactic in Contra Aid Fight’: “Conservative supporters of the Contra forces in Nicaragua are gearing up a 1950s-style campaign labeling opponents of U.S. aid as “soft on communism.” “We are saying either they are fools or they are collaborators,” said Ann Stone, a conservative fund-raiser. …
        Ms. Stone and Viguerie are flooding the mails with millions of letters urging people to send money and also call their representatives or senators urging them to support President Reagan’s $100 million aid package for the Contras fighting the Sandinista government of Nicaragua.”
    • Viguerie is best known to ISGP as a leading member of the 1981-founded Council for National Policy and also as a person who was part of a 1987 American Security Council-linked support delegation to notorious Contra death squad leader Colonel Enrique Bermudez. In addition, Bermudez was the boss of Danilo Blandon, the main contact for Freeway Ricky Ross, the central figure in the CIA crack cocaine affair of the 1980s.
    • In addition, Viguerie was a member of the seemingly CIA-ran George Town Club of Robert Keith Gray – whose pedophile entrapment operations Roy Cohn allegedly took over. That is, according to information obtained by Senator John DeCamp.
  • In 1979, as a 26-year-old aide in Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign, Roger Stone, was sent to New York to set up Reagan’s campaign here. The most useful person he makes contact with here is Roy Cohn, soon a director of the CIA and DOD-tied Western Goals Foundation, among other positions in this field. When Stone enters Cohn’s office, he is “finishing up a meeting with Fat Tony Salerno,” the earlier-mentioned head of the Genovese crime family that Trump also was involved with. Looking at Salerno’s words, “Roy here says we’re going with Ree-gun this time”, one gets the impression Cohn instructed the Genovese mafia to do what it could to tilt the election in favor of Reagan. In addition, hours later Stone first got to know Donald Trump through Roy Cohn.
    • May 2, 2016, The New Yorker, ‘Bad Old Days: The political provocateur Roger Stone talks about his long friendship with Trump.’: “Roy told him yes, we’re with Reagan. Then I said to Roy that we needed to put together a finance committee, and Roy said, ‘You need Donald and Fred Trump.’ He said Fred, Donald’s father, had been big for Goldwater in ’64. I went to see Donald, and he helped to get us office space for the Reagan campaign, and that’s when we became friends.””
  • Founder of Washington, D.C. lobby firm Black, Manafort and Stone, along with Charlie Black and Paul Manafort. Hired early on by Trump to help take care of construction and dredging permits and the like. It’s an association that continues into the 1990s. Stone also represented Trump in the decades long war he had with Steve Wynn over the Atlantic City casino business, a war that also ties back to the founder of, a dirty trickster who worked for Wynn.
  • In the 1980s, during his beloved Reagan years, Stone served as a chief strategist for Thomas Kean’s campaign to become, and later remain, governor of New Jersey. Kean comes from a Pilgrims Society family, was Henry Kissinger’s successor as chairman of the 9/11 Commission, and is a solid superclass member these days.
  • In 1987-1988 Stone served as senior adviser to the presidential campaign of Jack Kemp, another top superclass member with deep national security ties.
  • In 1995 Stone was president of Republican Senator Arlen Specter’s campaign for the 1996 Republican presidential nomination. As a mid 1960s Warren Commission staffer credited with having devised the beyond questionable single bullet theory, Arlen Specter has been accused of covering up the JFK assassination.
  • Advisor to the campaign of Bob Dole in 1996, but forced to resign after the media found out he was posting ads in swingers publications for him and his second wife.
  • In 2000, Stone served as campaign manager of Donald Trump’s canceled presidential campaign on behalf of the Reform Party. Ross Perot, the founder of the Reform Party, has deep ties to CIA through the OSS Society, with the Reform Party having fielded all kinds of misfits “liberal CIA” and “conservative CIA” candidates.
  • In February 2010, Stone became campaign manager for Kristin Davis, a madam who exposed Eliot Spitzer as a client of her prostitution business, in her bid for the Libertarian Party nomination for governor of New York in the 2010 election.
  • Prolific author since 2014, much related to Alex Jones-type conspiracy talk, whose show he first joined in 2015, right in time for the Donald Trump presidential campaign:
    • The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ (2013).

    • The Myth of Russian Collusion: The Inside Story of How Donald Trump REALLY Won (2019).

  • Libertarian presidential candidate. While not backed by the dominant liberal establishment media, Ron Paul was a hugely popular presidential candidate in the run up to the 2008 elections in particular, both by left-wingers and right-wingers active in conspiracy circles on the internet.
  • Despite his calm, honest and friendly demeanor, however, Paul is an extremist Libertarian who essentially wants to do away with all government and have the United States withdraw from the world into its own shell.
  • About the only prominent “dovish” John Birch Society supporter around. The John Birch Society, of course, was supported by “conservative CIA” financiers as Coors and Hunt over the years, because Libertarianism benefits the mega-rich in particular.
    • 1998, John Birch Society, ‘The United Nations: A Look Into the Future’, 30 minute documentary: “They are very much involved in population control, which means that they are pro-abortion and they support abortion worldwide. …
      [Those] who believe that we should have the right to own and bear arms, ought to be concerned what is happening in the United Nations. Because they are a threat to us. They will confiscate out guns. There have been proposals made at some of their conventions where they would literally repeal the second amendment. Individuals who believe in the right to own property ought to be concerned. …
      It is severely threatened by our own government. And it’s gonna be a lot worse if the United Nations gets involved. They believe in welfare distribution, in socialist redistribution, and everybody owns everything. And they would take from the wealthy and give to the poor to get an equal balance.”
    • December 20, 2016,, ‘Ron Paul Rewind: John Birch Society 50th Anniversary Speech’: “In 2008, Ron Paul, then a Republican House of Representatives member from Texas, spoke at the John Birch Society’s 50th anniversary event in Wisconsin. …
      “[Ron Paul:] Over these many years, what the John Birch Society has done, is planted a lot of seeds.””
  • He has also been a favorite of “conservative CIA” funding since the 1970s:
    • May 1975 edition, Homefront magazine of the Institute for American Democracy, p. 25: “Last May 3rd, the Joseph Coors-backed Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress sent $5,000 to Dr. Ron Paul, a relatively obscure Houston, Tex., obstetriciian, judged to be pregnant with political potential. Twee weeks later the Committee sent him another $1,000.”
    • June 26, 2015, Sydney Morning Herald, ‘Activism fomented by Koch brothers turns against them’: “Back in 1984 the Koch brothers founded Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) [now FreedomWorks, which was given $250,000 in 2016 and 2017 by the Bradley Fdn.], which described its mission as “to fight for less government, lower taxes, and less regulation”. Ron Paul was installed as its leader.”
    • August 3, 2015, Daily Beast, ‘Ron Paul Headlines One Koch Brothers Event—as Rand Paul Skips Another’: “#YALcon15, run mostly by former Ron Paul staffers, is mostly sponsored by the Koch brothers. And while Ron Paul served as the headliner for this Koch event…

  • Ron Paul associates with radical Catholic holocaust deniers:
    • November 6, 2013, Huffington Post, ‘Ron Paul to Speak at Holocaust Denier’s ‘Gala Dinner Fundraiser”: “Ron Paul’s association with Fatima Center leaders, including Fatima Center head Father Nicholas Gruner [John Bircher; regular Coast to Coast AM conspiracy disinformer 2003-2013 about the “Fatima Secrets” and warning of a “New World Order” under United Nations control] — who has espoused Holocaust denial, traces back at least as far as 1998. …
      Fatima Center … has in the past published writing suggesting that Jews should be stripped of certain civil rights — a suggestion also once made by one of the speakers, Father Paul Leonard Kramer, who will join Ron Paul…
      Paul responded to MSNBC correspondent Wagner’s challenge by flatly refusing to reconsider his planned appearance at the Fatima Center conference and by accusing Wagner of “Catholic bashing.””

  • Son of Ron Paul, who, for the time being, isn’t nearly as popular as his father Ron Paul, who has been supported since the 1970s by “conservative CIA” financiers as Coors, Hunt (through the JBS), Koch and Bradley.
    • August 3, 2015, Daily Beast, ‘Ron Paul Headlines One Koch Brothers Event—as Rand Paul Skips Another’: “[Rand Paul’s] absence [from a Koch event] was made all the more puzzling by the fact that he a) is fundraising poorly and could use a billionaire to help him out; and b) was panned for his performance at the last Koch summit, in January. There, he gave what Politico’s Ken Vogel characterized as “rambling and sometimes unpopular answers,” and wore his signature outfit of blue blazer, jeans, and cowboy boots, a look some super-wealthy donors found offensively casual.”
  • In 2014 spotted Rand Paul visiting the Sun Valley Meetings with billionaire Libertarian Peter Thiel, who also happens to be CIA-backed and is a Bilderberg steering committee member.

  • Co-founder of PayPal in 1998, and leader of the old “PayPal Mafia”, alongside his close ally Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, SpaceX and other ventures.
    • (accessed: March 26, 2018): “Peter Thiel is an entrepreneur and investor [and main founder of Founders Fund in 2005]. He started PayPal in 1998, led it as CEO, and took it public in 2002, defining a new era of fast and secure online commerce. In 2004 he made the first outside investment in Facebook, where he serves as a director. The same year he launched Palantir Technologies, a software company that harnesses computers to empower human analysts in fields like national security and global finance. He has provided early funding for LinkedIn, Yelp, and dozens of successful technology startups, many run by former colleagues who have been dubbed the “PayPal Mafia.” He is a partner at Founders Fund, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm that has funded companies like SpaceX and Airbnb. He started the Thiel Fellowship, which ignited a national debate by encouraging young people to put learning before schooling, and he leads the Thiel Foundation, which works to advance technological progress and long-term thinking about the future.”
  • In 2003 one of two founders of the secretive Palantir data-mining firm that received start-up funding form the CIA’s In-Q-Tel firm and was given access to Washington, D.C. through Richard Perle and former Total Information Awareness chief Admiral John Poindexter. Thiel has been serving as chairman of Palantir, while his partner, Alex Karp, has been serving as CEO.
  • First investor in Facebook in 2004 and a director of the company alongside Mark Zuckerberg since this time.
  • Annual visitor of Bilderberg since 2007 and soon joined the steering committee, this together with long-time Google CEO Eric Schmidt and later also his Palantir partner Alex Karp. Close Silicon Valley ally Reid Hoffman, the founder of LinkedIn, became a Bilderberg regular in 2011. Facebook, as well as Facebook-owned Instagram, has been represented at the Trilateral Commission through lower-level leadership.
  • Libertarian politicas:
    • Early history as an and anti-multiculture crusader.
      • January 12, 2008, The Guardian, ‘With friends like these …’: “A philosophy graduate from Stanford, in 1998 he co-wrote a book called The Diversity Myth, which is a detailed attack on liberalism and the multiculturalist ideology that dominated Stanford. He claimed that the “multiculture” led to a lessening of individual freedoms. While a student at Stanford, Thiel founded a rightwing journal, still up and running, called The Stanford Review – motto: Fiat Lux (“Let there be light”).
        Thiel is a member of TheVanguard.Org, an internet-based neoconservative pressure group that was set up to attack [the Soros-funded], a liberal pressure group that works on the web. Thiel calls himself “way libertarian”. …
        Thiel’s philosophical mentor is one Rene Girard of Stanford University, proponent of a theory of human behaviour called mimetic desire. Girard reckons that people are essentially sheep-like and will copy one another without much reflection.”
    • Just about the only prominent Donald Trump supporter in Silicon Valley – which not even Alex Karp does.
      • October 20, 2016, Vanity Fair, ‘Jeff Bezos: Peter Thiel is “a Contrarian,” and Contrarians “are Usually Wrong”: “Thiel, who sits on the board of Facebook and Y Combinator, among other jobs, ignited a fierce debate in Silicon Valley earlier this week when it was reported that he had donated $1.25 million to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Some called on Y Combinator to part ways with Thiel, prompting YC president Sam Altman to defend Thiel’s right to hold unpopular opinions. Facebook C.E.O. Mark Zuckerberg also stood by Thiel’s board membership, remarking in a leaked internal memo, “We can’t create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half the country because they back a political candidate.””
    • Has visited the Sun Valley Meetings since at least 2012. In 2014 he was spotted here with fellow-Libertarian Rand Paul.
  • Endless ties to controlled opposition networks:
    • Peter Thiel, along with Goldman Sachs and super-globalist and open border-pusher George Soros, have been in business with Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President Trump:
      • May 3, 2017, Daily Mail, ‘Jared Kushner is in business with George Soros, Peter Thiel and Goldman Sachs and has personally guaranteed vast borrowing from European banks – but never declared his financial secrets’: “Jared Kushner didn’t report on a government financial disclosure form that he is the part-owner of a real estate start-up [Cadre] that counts Goldman Sachs clients and billionaires Peter Thiel and George Soros among its investors. The Wall Street Journal first reported the connection, pointing out that the president’s son-in-law and White House senior adviser, continued to have a stake in Cadre…
        Kushner’s Cadre stake was one of many interests that the Journal found unreported in Kushner’s disclosure firm, which also included loans totaling at least $1 billion from more than 20 lenders, including Deutsche Bank and the Royal Bank of Scotland.
        President Trump’s son-in-law also provided personal guarantees on more than $300 million worth of debt.
        Kushner’s attorney Jamie Gorelick told the Journal that Kushner’s stake in Cadre is under the umbrella of another company he owns called BFPS Ventures LLC, which is reported in his financial disclosures. … Kushner, Gorelick said, ‘resigned from Cadre’s board, assigned his voting rights and reduced his ownership there.'”
      • January 27, 2017, The Real Deal, ‘George Soros is the secret financier behind Kushner-backed startup Cadre; Investor’s family fund issued $250M credit line: sources’: “George Soros’ Soros Fund Management has quietly been financing the Kushner-backed real estate finance startup Cadre with a substantial credit line, according to sources familiar with the matter. A source familiar with the financing arrangement told The Real Deal that “Soros has had a long and productive relationship with the Kushner family.” … Business Insider first reported the existence of $250 million credit line in June, but didn’t mention its source. …”

    • Thiel financed the second major crypto and the first DAPP/smart contract crypto. Despite being initially negative, he later irrationally helped push Bitcoin, an old, slow crypto of whom nobody knows who even created it (!), to extreme heights, this despite the fact that there were dozens of better alternatives available.

    • Thiel tie to Sean Parker, the CIA-recruited Napster programmer, who got Thiel to invest in Facebook and Spotify, and to this day serves as an important advisor:
      • September 21, 2011, Forbes, ‘Sean Parker: Agent Of Disruption’: “At 15 his hacking caught the attention of the FBI, earning him community service. At 16 he won the Virginia state computer science fair for developing an early Web crawler and was recruited by the CIA. Instead he interned for [Harvard-graduate, former Lazard Freres Media Group VP, and Bain & Co. associate] Mark Pincus’ D.C. startup, FreeLoader [note: already interned at age 14]… Parker made $80,000 his senior year, enough to convince his parents to let him put off college and join Shawn Fanning, a teenager he’d met on a dial-up bulletin board, to start a music-sharing site that became Napster in 1999 [with Pincus the first investor withy $100,000].”
        As of early 2019, this CIA tie is not listed on Parker’s English Wikipedia. This author specifically went looking for it for a number of reasons, not the least in relation to Thiel’s ties.
      • February 6, 2010, Vanity Fair, ‘With a Little Help From His Friends’: “In 1999 [Sean Parker] became rather notorious, at 19, for helping an even younger teenager named Shawn Fanning create Napster. That free song-sharing service upended the music industry. More recently, Parker played an indispensable role as the founding president of Facebook… Had he not joined founder Mark Zuckerberg in Palo Alto in the summer of 2004, when the fledgling Facebook was just five months old, the service almost certainly would not be the colossus it is today. … Parker is widely considered a Web oracle; more than a few acquaintances and colleagues use the word “genius” to describe him. … He was pushed out of Facebook after an arrest for cocaine possession in 2005. (No charges were filed.) Even among his many supporters, he has a reputation for being an erratic party animal. …
        Back then Parker apparently believed even more passionately in the company’s potential than did Zuckerberg himself. Peter Thiel—the billionaire hedge-fund manager and co-founder of PayPal, who became Thefacebook’s first investor—says that around that time “Sean consistently argued that Facebook was going to be really big. If Mark ever had any second thoughts, Sean was the one who cut that off.” In late August 2004, Zuckerberg and Parker went into a branch of Silicon Valley Bank to open a business account. With only two weeks before the fall semester, Zuckerberg was still talking about returning to Harvard, and the two argued over it right then and there, according to Ken Loveless, a senior vice president at the bank. Parker was adamant that Zuckerberg shouldn’t go back. (Zuckerberg dropped out.) …
        In the financing that Parker negotiated with Thiel, as well as a much larger deal signed seven months later with the Accel Partners venture-capital firm, Parker was able to negotiate for Zuckerberg something almost unheard of in a venture-funded start-up: absolute control for the entrepreneur. Because of that, Zuckerberg, to this day, allocates three of Facebook’s five board seats (including his own). Without that control, Facebook would almost certainly have been sold to either Yahoo or Microsoft, whose C.E.O., Steve Ballmer, offered $15 billion for it in the fall of 2007—only to be met with a blank stare from the then 23-year-old Zuckerberg. …
        Reid Hoffman, a longtime friend and the founder of LinkedIn, who sits with Parker on the board of Gowalla—a location-based social-media service—remembers Parker suggesting an intriguing new concept for the company while the two of them were chatting in Davos, Switzerland. …
        “Sean is a genius, no question,” says [globalist-oriented actor] Ashton Kutcher, whom Parker advised while the actor was developing his own Net-oriented production company. Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales met Parker in 2008 and the two started hanging out.” …
        Actress and activist Trudie Styler, who is married to [globalist musician] Sting, invited Parker and his then girlfriend to a retreat for philanthropists and activists that the couple hosted at their Tuscany estate last year. …
        Parker also fraternizes in the most elite precincts of global governance and policy—but in his own way. At the World Economic Forum in January, he was disappointed in the quality of the nightlife in Davos…
        Today, Parker spends most of his time finding and managing investments for Founders Fund, Thiel’s venture-capital shop. His current passion: a London-based music company called Spotify, which he thinks can finish the job that he and Fanning started with Napster—this time, legally.”
      • October 6, 2011, Forbes, ‘Sean Parker And Shawn Fanning’s Secretive Airtime Gets Big Backers’: “[Napster founders] Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning are back together. … [Parker] made $2.1 billion as Facebook’s first president, and joined the board of Daniel Ek’s Spotify (a music site out to challenge Apple’s iTunes) … Parker and Fanning tell me they’ve raised roughly $8 million in Series A financing from a roster that includes: Founders Fund, Accel’s Jim Breyer, Yuri Milner, SV Angel with Ron Conway as a special advisor, Andreseen Horowitz, Michael Arrington, Marissa Mayer, Ari Emanuel (William Morris Endeavor Entertainment), Scott “Scooter” Braun (Justin Bieber’s manager), plus celebrity investors like Aston Kutcher and The Black Eyed Peas’”

Founders Fund partner Bruce Gibney…

    • Ties between Peter Thiel and anti-NSA encryptor James Dolan of the Freedom of the Press Foundation:
      • James Dolan developed SecureDrop with the Y Combinator-supported Aaron Swartz – a Soros and “liberal CIA”-linked social justice warrior who aided the founding of the (eventually) giant forums. After working for the Soros-Rockefeller-Ford Foundation, etc.-supported Freedom of the Press Foundation, implementing SecureDrop in many different places, Dolan went to work for Classy in 2015. Wondering if classy has any peculiar ties, it soon turned out Peter Thiel had become the primary financier of the company earlier in 2015. Swartz and Dolan both ended up committing suicide.
      • January 30, 2015, Business Wire, ‘Classy Partners with Leading Technology Investor Mithril to Power the Next Generation of Social Impact Organizations’: “Classy, the leading cloud-based fundraising platform that helps nonprofits and social enterprises mobilize and empower communities, today announced several major milestones, including an $18M growth round of funding led by Mithril Capital Management, the leading technology growth capital firm founded Ajay Royan & Peter Thiel. …

    • Thiel tie to social justice warriors, the brothers Eric and Bret Weinstein:
      • Eric Weinstein: Managing director of Thiel Capital. Research fellow at the Mathematical Institute of Oxford University. Member of the Edge Foundation. Expert at the Institute for New Economic Thinking, which since 2011 has an official partnership with the George Soros-funded Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), linked to cryptocurrencies Ethereum (kickstarted by Peter Thiel in 2014) and IOTA. Guest on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast and the Sam Harris podcast.
        • August 8, 2017, CNBC, ‘Google is teaching my girl that ‘complaining to HR [Human Resources]’ is path to success, says Peter Thiel-linked investor’: “The comments, made by Eric Weinstein, the managing director of Thiel Capital, come after Google fired engineer James Damore for circulating a memo that argued biological differences were the reason for the shortage of women at the company. Many employees in Google were outraged by the memo. …
          And then the Thiel Capital managing director likened Damore’s dismissal from Google to firing a biologist for making a factual comment on biology but accusing him of sexual harassment.”
      • Bret Weinstein: Professor at Evergreen State College until 2017, when he refused to leave on its “Day of Absence”, in which, in protest of the Trump administration, all white people were supposed to leave campus (instead of the minority ones, as had been practiced for decades). Despite being reasonable and rational, it led to Bret being targeted by extremist antifa students that drove him out, along with his wife. This despite white supremacists of a group named Patriot Prayer rolling onto campus to support the dissenting professor. The clashes received national attention and soon Bret went on to the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, as well as the one of Sam Harris, to provide his account.
        Looking into Evergreen, it turns out that it has founding Trilateral Commission ties and that since at least the early 1990s it has received millions from the Ford Foundation, the Tides Foundation, the Pew Charitable Trust, and the Hewlett Packard and Kaiser Family foundations. Corporations as Microsoft and Warren Buffett’s Coca-Cola have also chipped in. This may explain its ultra-liberal, globalist bent and the college leadership-supported antifa protests against Bret Weinstein, the brother of – coincidentally – a Peter Thiel employee.
        Appointed a 2019-2020 James Madison Program Visiting Fellow at the elite Prince University.
        • June 18, 2020, Joe Rogan Experience podcast, ‘Bret Weinstein Argues for an Andrew Yang/William H. McRaven Presidential Ticket’:
          [JOE:] Let’s vote independent. They don’t have a monopoly on the distribution of information anymore, and that is terrifying to them. Because they used to be able to count on the shills on the left and the right to get the word out for them. But they don’t have that anymore. You have so many people that really don’t have an ideological foundation in either one of them – that are talking and that are reacing millions of people. That’s a rare moment in time. And this is, in my opinion, the best time for someone to step in [who] doesn’t need that policy machine behind them. Or the political machine behind them.
          [BRET:] Well, I’ve got a plan. But we would have to find a really big podcast to gain enough momentum.
          [JOE:] There’s none of them out there though… No, they don’t exist. …
          [BRET:] [So my] Dark Horse Duo Plan. … We draft two individuals. One of them is center-left and one of them is center-right. … They will govern as a team. And only in cases where they cannot reach an agreement or when something has to be decided on a very short time scale, like a military decision, does the person who inhabits the role as president govern alone. We draft these folks and then 4 years down the road, they switch. And the one who had run for president, now runs for the vice presidential spot. … So we have a patriotic team governing together.
          My propasal would be Adm. William McRaven on the right [McRaven: fired from Seal Team Six by Richard Marcinko in 1983 for being too rigid; deputy to Gen. Stanley McChrystal; commander USSOCOM 2011-2014, succeeding Adm. Eric Olson; responsible for the operation to kill Osama bin Laden; member CFR 2014-; anti-Trump campaigner; anno 2020 on the honorary board of the International Spy Museum, John Negroponte, George Tenet, James Woolsey, Robert Gates and globalist Hollywood actors Robert De Niro and Harrison Ford.]
          On the center-left … Andrew Yang [2020 Democrat presidential candidate who is pro-Third World immigration when it involves skilled workers, but not so much when it involves unskilled/illegal workers (marking him for attack from extremist antifa “liberal CIA”-type candidates); very anti-Russia; etc.].
          [JOE:] I’m down with that! I like what you are saying now.”

    • Thiel has a link to CNN dissenter-turned-psychedelics guru Amber Lyon. Lyon’s psychedelics website,, was built by, the same webdesigner who counts Peter Thiel as its chief client. She also has ties to the Rockefeller and Soros family, but these are all discussed in ISGP’s Psychedelics & Elitism article.

  • Rhodes Schoilar who became CIA director 1993-1995, one notoriously shut out by Bill Clinton. Likely already CIA in 1967-1968 when he was an antiwar activist and founder and president of Yale Citizens for Eugene McCarthy for President. Otherwise likely to have been CIA when he was a defense industry lawyer. Democrat.
  • Involved in over 90 NGOs, with that being listed as number 2 in ISGP’s Superclass Index, immediately behind Henry Kissinger and considerably above famous names as David Rockefeller (not counting foundation finanacing), George Shultz, Zbigniew Brzezinski and Henry Kissinger.
  • While obviously elitist, Woolsey is listed here because he has been involved in more neocon NGOs than any other neocon. And… he’s not Jewish. Not even a Republican: Woolsey is Democrat with early ties to the liberal Eastern Establishment through think tanks as CSIS, etc. As discussed elsewhere, “neoconservativism” appears to be an artifically-created construct, with leading Jewish neocons as Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and Michael Ledeen historically having been little more than intellectual hitmen fronting for CIA-Mossad operations. Jewish neocons never held the top posts in U.S. administrations. Those positions were reserved for non-Jewish neocons as Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and James Woolsey – all of whom with major ties to the “liberal” Eastern Establishment (similar to Perle) as well.
  • Similarly unusual, James Woolsey has been deeply involved in new age disinformation networks surrounding Coast to Coast AM.

France: Jean Marie Le Pen

Holland: Frits Bolkestein

  • The first strictly anti-immigration “populist” leader of the Netherlands who arose in 2001 and 2002. Assassinated one week before the elections by “liberal CIA”-tied and -financed environmentalist Volkert van den Graaf – released from prison again in 2014.
  • Pim Fortuyn was a member of the curious, low-profile Republikeins Genootschap / Republican Society, filled with about 200 establishment and non-establishment “radicals” in Dutch Society: green, socialist and communist activists; anti-Bilderberg and anti-Prince Bernhard authors; a pedophilia advocate, etc. Also included were a tiny handful of neocon advocates as Pim Fortuyn, his friend Theo van Gogh (publicly butchered in 2004 by a Jihadist) and famous conspiracy author Tomas Ross, who spread disinformation on the Fortuyn murder regarding a non-existent second shooter. Even the lawyer of assassin Volkert van der Graaf was a member. At least three Republican Society founders were involved with Bilderberg.
  • These details regarding the Pim Fortuyn assassination and the Republican Society are completely unknown in Dutch society and have only been discussed in detail by ISGP.

  • Second “populist” politician the Netherlands saw. Emerged in 2006 as leader of the Partij for de Vrijheid / Party for Freedom (PVV).
  • While the PVV has been very popular over the years, Wilders never became prime minister due to overly anti-EU stances and regular, unneccssarily harsh outbursts against Arab Moroccan immigrants in particular. With that he perfectly fit the stereotype of a “populist” and stigmatizer – alienating a large part of the population.
  • Like other international “populists”, refuses to rationally bring up ethnic crime numbers, racial IQ, or immigration-related poll statistics that will empower the masses with facts and force globalists to somehow counter with facts instead of purely appealing to or ridiculing with emotion.
  • Largely lost face in the run up to the March 2017 elections. Despite leading the polls with a wide margin in late 2016, by early 2017 he all of a sudden hid in his basement for weeks on end, refusing to take part in any debates, all with the excuse of not wanting to deal with the “fake news”. As a result, the lead he had in late 2016, in part due to the Trump election, was fully reversed. He copied this accusation from Trump, but in contrast to Trump refused to do any campaigning. In the mdist of this, it coincidentally was also revealed that a Dutch-Moroccan police officer was involved in plot to assassinate Wilders. In this same period, Thierry Baudet and his Forum for Democracy rose up, splitting the “populist” vote.
  • December 21, 2016, Telegraaf, ‘Peiling: PVV loopt verder uit op VVD’ (‘Polls: PVV extends its lead over the VVD’): “PVV [now] has 36 seats, the VVD loses two and keeps 23 [and sits at number 2].”

He has called the hijab a “useless piece of cloth.” …
    Geert Wilders, far-right icon, is one of Europe’s unusual politicians, not least because he comes from the Netherlands, one of Europe’s most socially liberal countries, with a centuries-long tradition of promoting religious tolerance and welcoming immigrants [note: total lie; globalist PMs as Ruud Lubbers, Wim Kok and those after them simply forced this onto the population, together with media and business elites]. …
    Living under threat since the police discovered plots against him in 2004… In recent years, because of the apparent threats against him, Mr. Wilders has become progressively more isolated. … Last week, he suspended his campaign appearances altogether after reports that a member of his police security detail was suspected of leaking his movements to a Dutch-Moroccan criminal gang.”
  • Coincidentally, a protege of Dutch politician, Mont Pelerin Society member, and four-time Bilderberg visitor Frits Bolkestein, formerly a top advisor to top Russian Zionist oligarch Mikhail Chossudovsky, a long-time key ally of Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and Lord Jacob Rothschild.

  • Ultimately, Geert Wilders is the usual neocon with deep U.S. and Israeli ties. Not just that, Wilders is receiving large amounts of favors, overt financing and seemingly even a lot of covert financing from cash neoon “conservative CIA” circles, including the Gatestone Institute of former CIA director and top neocon James Woolsey:

She brought him to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington in February 2009, and soon after, Arizona Senator Jon Kyl [co-chair with former CIA director James Woolsey of the Center for Security Policy and otherwise deep CIA and elite national security ties] screened “Fitna” at the Capitol.”
    • July 2-9 issue, The Nation, ‘The Sugar Mama of Anti-Muslim Hate’: “In late April, Geert Wilders arrived in New York City… Perhaps the world’s most prominent anti-Muslim populist—was poised to release Marked for Death: Islam’s War Against the West and Me, a memoir just out from Regnery, the right-wing US publishing house, in which he recounts his courageous efforts to stop the “Islamicization” of Europe. On his US tour, Wilders proudly portrayed himself as a man on the run—a round-the-clock security detail guarding him against radical Muslims…
      Upon Wilders’s arrival in New York, a little-known think tank called the Gatestone Institute rolled out the red carpet for him. On April 30, before a select crowd that according to Gatestone’s website had paid $10,000 a head…
      He quotes Zionist forefather Theodor Herzl and boasts of his more than forty trips to Israel, where he once toiled on a rural kibbutz. Wilders, in fact, has made a special friend of right-wing Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman. …

      This is something different from a Parliamentary speech. … No one walks out. No one looks at his phone until it’s over. … Then there is cheering and yelling; then sometimes there is a standing ovation, in the middle of his story. …
      In the Netherlands the idea exists that the party of Geert Wilders is breaking bank with American donations. His friendship with American foundations do appear to back that up, but especially due to a rumor the PVV-departed Wim Kortenhoeven floated in 2012. ‘Wilders receives hundreds of thousands of dollars from the US’. During his time with the PVV, Kortenhoeven heard about ‘suitcases with cash’ that Wilders would be taken clandestinely from the United States. …
      Because the PVV doesn’t receive subsidies, the party is dependent on outside funding. …
      Not for nothing the evening has been opened by a rabbi. Not for nothing Wilders is making clear the essential role Israel plays.”
    • February 27, 2017, New York Times, ‘Geert Wilders, Reclusive Provocateur, Rises Before Dutch Vote’: “He receives funding from at least one American conservative group. … [Spoke] at the Republican convention in Cleveland, where he spoke at the “Milo Yiannopoulos Wake Up Party,” a gathering of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people for Mr. Trump. … He has also traveled on many occasions to Israel, for which he developed a deep affection after spending months on a kibbutz as a young man. He is described by political compatriots as friendly with Benjamin Netanyahu, the right-wing Israeli prime minister.”
    • December 27, 2016, NRC, ‘De PVV leunt op deze Amerikaanse ‘godfather van de anti-moslimbeweging”: ” That Geert Wilders has been convicted for group insulting and aanzetten to discrimination for his ‘less Morocccans’ statement is “a disgrace for every democracy”, says David Horowitz. Wilders is “a hero” and “the Spinoza of our time”, thinks his primary donor. …
      Last year [2015], Horowitz’ foundation, the David Horowitz Freedom Center, donated 108.244,24 euros to the PVV. … A year before [2014] Horowitz would have donated a solid 18,000 euros, [also] through the foundations Friends of the PVV. From an inquiry at the foundation we learn that still other sums have been donated at other points: 75,000 dollars [more] in 2014 and 75,000 dollar [more] in 2015. This year [already] 25,000 would have been donated: 175,000 dollars in total. Why these numbers don’t add up to the filings of the PVV, Horowitz doesn’t know. Representatives of the party don’t respond to calls of an explanation…
      [Note: if you take the averages for 2014 and 2015, one ends up around 125,000 euros in both cases]. …
      It is unknown what Wilders’ American adventures have netted him personally. Until 2013 political parties did not have to make donations public. The PVV was the only one to oppose that law. [And] now that that law exists, it seems that the party is being careless with it, to put it mildly. …
      Daniel Pipes, the director of the neoconservative think tank Middle East Forum [same network; same “conservative CIA” donors], which earlier donated funds to Wilders [said] he only wanted to contribute to a “discussion about the Islam, not about Moroccans”.
      [Somehow, the newspaper can’t figure out who the donors are to these foundations.]”

  • Her key collaborator, Republican Society member, former Pim Fortuyn ally and anti-Muslim agitator Theo Van Gogh, was publicly butchered by a Muslim in 2004. During the act, the Jihadist perpetrator used his knife to stick a note on Van Gogh’s chest, which read that Ali would be next:

The Somali-born women’s rights advocate and writer, then a member of the Dutch Parliament, had herself received innumerable death threats for writing the film, entitled Submission. The Dutch Minister of Interior informed her of what had occurred: Mr. Van Gogh was shot eight times and left on an Amsterdam street with his throat slit and a large knife stuck in his chest. The killer used a second knife to attach a note to Mr. Van Gogh’s chest, warning of violence to Western nations and to Jews, and pronouncing a death sentence against Ms. Hirsi Ali.”
  • Intimidated, Ali fled to the United States in 2006 and just happened to immediately land a job as visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, home to neocon extremists as Richard Perle, Michael Ledeen and others. Since then, she has been a poster girl of the evils of radical Islam:

  • Third leading anti-immigration “populist” politician after Pim Fortuyn and Geert Wilders. Emerged in early 2017 as the leader of the Forum voor Democratie / Forum for Democracy, right when it was looking that fellow-“populist” Geert Wilders was going to be Dutch prime minister.
  • Like other international “populists”, refuses to rationally bring up ethnic crime numbers, racial IQ, or immigration-related poll statistics that will empower the masses with facts and force globalists to somehow counter with facts instead of purely appealing to or ridiculing with emotion.
  • Bizarrely, Baudet not just mixes anti-immigration with an anti-EU stance, but also denies global warming, completely in line with U.S. conservatives. Apart from being a flawed idea, this type of thinking simply did not previously exist in the Netherlands, a country in which even a minor sea level rise will have absolutely apocalyptic consequences.
  • Party tied to radical atheism, military intelligence, anti-terrorism spy programs, the Russian Alfa Group (Russian-Zionist mafia, tied to the top of the CFR; through a former party candidate), and the curious Republican Society of Pim Fortuyn.
  • 5-hour hotel meeting Jared Kutcher, an ally of Richard Spencer in the National Policy Institute and the international “alt right”. It appears Baudet is primarily moving towards the Nazi and John Birch Society element of “conservative CIA”, while Geert Wilders remains pro-Israel neocon.
    • December 20 2017, NOS (Dutch public news), ‘Baudet sprak vijf uur met Amerikaanse racist Jared Taylor’: “Thierry Baudet heeft op 12 oktober een ontmoeting gehad met de Amerikaanse racist Jared Taylor, meldt De Correspondent. Volgens het journalistiek platform hebben drie getuigen hen samen gezien in het Ambassade Hotel in Amsterdam, waar ze met een groepje anderen vijf uur zouden samen hebben gegeten, gedronken en gesproken. Taylor bevestigt tegenover De Correspondent dat de ontmoeting heeft plaatsgevonden.
      Taylor is een van de inspiratoren van de extreem-rechtse Alt-Right-beweging. Hij was in oktober in Nederland voor een congres van de extreemrechtse beweging Erkenbrand.
      De 66-jarige Taylor waarschuwt al tientallen jaren lang dat ‘het blanke ras’ door ‘rassenmenging’ aan het uitsterven is. Ook beweert hij dat ‘het zwarte ras’ de laagste intelligentie heeft, waardoor volgens hem zwarten er overal een puinhoop van maken. Verder stelt hij dat Joden “extreem handig zijn in het exploiteren van onze zwakte”.
      Baudet heeft zich de laatste tijd van Erkenbrand [labels itself part of the “European New Right” and the “Alt Right” has a rather militaristic/Nazi-like logo; still a terrible website, founded in late 2017; 1,000 Twitter followers as of February 2019; almost certainly controlled opposition], Alt-Right en extreem-rechts in het algemeen gedistantieerd, maar heeft in het verleden uitlatingen gedaan die sympathie voor Alt-Right doen vermoeden. Zo retweette hij in januari een afbeelding van Pepe the Frog, de mascotte van de Alt-Rightbeweging en liet hij zich in mei nog positief uit over Erkenbrand.”

[hilarious Twitter poll of Telegraaf: “Anne Frank Foundation: ‘PVV and FvD promote extreme right conspiracy theory’… 22% True. 78% Not True.”
  • Continuing where Geert Wilders left off, FvD has started to divide Dutch society in the exact same fashion as the U.S. has been divided between the extreme left and the extreme right:

    • January 31, 2020, (3 followers) reply to @thierry_baudet post on Instagram: “Beste Thierry, ik zat in die trein naast je desbetreffende “Vriendinnen” de situatie was als volgt: Er werd door de conducteur omgeroepen dat er een controle in burger zou gaan plaats vinden door veiligheids medewerkers, met de vraag of iedereen zijn vervoersbewijs wou pakken voor deze controle. Ik zag dat er een jonge jongen op de 2 dames afstapte en om hun vervoersbewijs vroeg. Dit had hij ook al bij mij gedaan, hij deed gewoon zijn werk werk namelijk, het controleren van vervoersbewijzen. De 2 vrouwen wouden niet hun vervoersbewijs laten zien, hierop kwam er nog een collega van de jongen bij (gewoon een Hollandse jongen) Hij heeft zich met 3 verschillende passen aan de 2 vrouwen gelegitimeerd. Hierop hoorde ik de vrouwen zeggen: Ja die passen kan ik ook wel thuis maken. Zij hebben deze vrouwen niet lastig gevallen de 2 vrouwen wilde met moeite meewerken aan een controle. Toen kwam er inderdaad nog een persoon er bij met een buitenlands uiterlijk, het bleek een agent te zijn. Toen pas werkte de 2 vrouwen mee. lk vind het bijzonder dat jij dit gebruikt om het “Marokkaanse volk” zwart te maken… De controle werd gewoon gedaan door veiligheids medewerkers. jij als politicus zou iets beter zijn bronnen moeten chekken voordat jij iets zonder enige eigen constatering op Instagram gooit om meer volgers te krijgen…”

  • Baudet is quite adept at spreading Russia-linked disinformation, in-line with the unfortunate idea that the “alt-right” is pro-Russia:
    • February 16, 2017, New York Times, ‘Fake News, Fake Ukrainians: How a Group of Russians Tilted a Dutch Vote’: “Harry van Bommel, a left-wing member of the Dutch Parliament, had persuasive allies in convincing voters that they should reject a trade pact with Ukraine — his special “Ukrainian team,” a gleefully contrarian group of émigrés whose sympathies lay with Russia. [already looked at for years as intelligence plant in the Dutch Socialist Party]…
      Mr. Baudet posted a Twitter message saying that Ukraine “is not a nation state” and retweeted a false report that Ukrainian soldiers had crucified a 3-year-old Russian-speaking boy in eastern Ukraine. …
      The video was quickly dismissed as a fraud and was later linked by [the Soros-funced group] Bellingcat … to a so-called troll factory in St. Petersburg… Baudet … denied spouting Russia propaganda and said he was merely trying to counter what he called “Europe’s remarkable Russophobia”…”
    • April 16, 2020, Volkskrant, ‘Baudet ging in zee (misschien zelfs tegen betaling) met Russische propagandist’: “Thierry Baudet, leider van Forum voor Democratie, heeft zich rond het [2016] Oekraïnereferendum ingelaten met een Russische propagandist. Hij stond in nauw contact met deze Vladimir Kornilov, van wie hij wist dat die banden had met het Kremlin.
      Baudet hintte er bij partijgenoten op dat Kornilov hem betaalde en verspreidde valse theorieën over de doodsoorzaak van demonstranten in Kiev, evenals een complottheorie over de aanwezigheid van de Oekraïense geheime dienst in Amsterdam. Baudet was ervan op de hoogte dat de informatie over de Oekraïense geheime dienst in Amsterdam niet klopte, maar dat weerhield hem er niet van erover te praten bij EenVandaag.
      Voormalig partijgenoot Henk Otten heeft Baudet meerdere keren gewaarschuwd niet met Kornilov in zee te gaan. …
      Uit gelekte mails bleek al eerder dat Kornilov contacten heeft tot in het Kremlin. Hij wordt in mails genoemd met Sergej Glazijev, adviseur van president Poetin. De inlichtingendienst AIVD was in 2015 en 2016 ‘geïnteresseerd’ in het gedrag en de contacten van Kornilov, vertellen ingewijden. Zijn plotselinge komst naar Nederland, zijn uitlatingen, manier van werken en contacten met politici als Baudet en ook SP’er Harry van Bommel deden sterk denken aan een Russische beïnvloedingsoperatie.
      Ook Baudet leek dat al snel in de gaten te hebben. ‘Een Rus die werkt voor Poetin’ en een ‘heel invloedrijke figuur’, zo omschrijft hij Kornilov na een eerste kennismaking tegenover partijgenoten. Later zegt hij: ‘Ik werk me dood aan die Kornilov.’ Het is onduidelijk wat hij daarmee bedoelt. Nadat hij bij EenVandaag heeft gesproken over ‘vijftig man’ van de Oekraiënse geheime dienst in een pand aan het Rokin, vraagt Henk Otten of hij dat hard kan maken. Baudet: ‘Nee. Info komt van Kornilov. We gaan er totaal niet meer op in, laten het doodvallen. Mediastrategie van Trump.’
      Als Baudet zijn baan als politiek commentator bij PowNed opzegt en krap bij kas zit, appt hij: ‘Misschien wil Kornilov wat extra betalen’ en ‘Daar kan geen Kornilov met al z’n geld tegenop’. Beide berichten zijn voorzien van een smiley: knipogend en lachend.”
    • April 16, 2020, Trouw, ‘Thierry Baudet weer in beeld als Kremlinvazal’: “Thierry Baudet wilde Nederland uit de Navo [in 2016] onthulde het programma Zembla donderdagavond. De politiek leider van Forum voor Democratie werkt nauw samen met pro-Kremlin-activisten, onder meer om desinformatie te verspreiden, volgens de makers van de uitzending. …
      In de appjes [van Baudet] wordt meermalen gehint op betalingen door de Russen. Een hoge Amerikaanse Pentagonadivseur en Ruslandkenner noemt Baudet in de uitzending een ‘controlled politician’. Harde bewijzen van financiële banden heeft Zembla alleen niet gevonden. …
      Poetin ziet hij als bondgenoot. Baudet was daarom tegen de sancties na de annexatie van de Krim en trok de onafhankelijkheid van het onderzoek naar de ramp met de MH17 in twijfel. FvD lijkt met deze Poetin-liefde op andere Europese rechts-nationalistische partijen, zoals Lega in Italië of FPO in Oostenrijk.
      Zembla vestigt onder meer de aandacht op de invloedrijke rol van John Laughland, door Baudet ‘een visonair’ genoemd. Laughland is een Poetin-apologeet (en een ontkenner van Srbrenica) die tot voor kort werkte voor een met Russisch geld gefinancierde denktank in Parijs. Hij verschijnt regelmatig op Russia Today, het Engelstalige propagandakanaal van het Kremlin. Na aanvankelijke weerstand bij anderen binnen Forum groeide Laughland dankzij Baudet uit tot partij-ideoloog, medewerker van de Europese fractie en docent op het Renaissance-instituut van FvD. Laughland ziet de EU als een soort nazi-ideologie, een oorlogsproject. Een opvatting die Baudet ook uitdroeg in het debat over de EU-begroting.”
  • More information to be found in ISGP’s Pim Fortuyn article.

  • A congressman of the 1960s, Enoch Powell was the first strictly anti-immigration “populist” leader of the Great Britian.
  • Added here after learning that Enoch Powell was part of the Mont Pelerin Society (until 1972) and its British off-shoot, the Institute of Economic Affairs, founded by leading Mont Pelerin member Sir Anthony Fisher.
    • 1998, Milton Friedman, ‘Two Lucky People: Memoirs’, p. 335: “One of the most unusual events that has ever occurred at a Mont Pelerin meeting [was right after] the [1972] massacre of the Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics… Gunter Schmolders, past president, was in the chair when the news was passed to him. He interrupted the meeting to report the news and then asked for a moment of silence to express our sadness. At this point, Enoch Powell [from Northern Ireland] arose and, with the appearance of a madman, opposed the moment of silence, screaming something like, “Why do we not have a moment of silence for the people being killed in Ireland?” The audience was horrified… Powell left the room and never appeared at another Mont Pelerin meeting.”
    • 2005, Roger Hewitt. ‘White Backlash and the Politics of Multiculturalism’, p. 24: “Enoch Powell, Conservative Member of Parliament for the midlands industrial town of Wolverhampton, was, as it happens, amongst the few senior Conservatives at that time to consistently argued for free-market economics from the 1950s onwards. He was also an occasional sojourner in the Mont Pelerin Society and a frequent contributor to the work of the Institute for Economic Affairs.”
  • Fact is, Enoch Powell’s anti-immigration positions in the late 1960s were extremely prophetic. So much is clear from his supposedly notorious “rivers of blood speech”, which, of course, has been taken completely out of context:
    • November 6, 2007, Telegraph, ‘Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech’ (April 20, 1968): “[This citizen] continued: “I have three children, all of them been through grammar school and two of them married now, with family. I shan’t be satisfied till I have seen them all settled overseas. In this country in 15 or 20 years’ time the black man will have the whip hand over the white man.” … Here is a decent, ordinary fellow Englishman, who in broad daylight in my own town says to me, his Member of Parliament, that his country will not be worth living in for his children.
      I simply do not have the right to shrug my shoulders and think about something else. What he is saying, thousands and hundreds of thousands are saying and thinking – not throughout Great Britain, perhaps, but in the areas that are already undergoing the total transformation to which there is no parallel in a thousand years of English history.
      In 15 or 20 years, on present trends, there will be in this country three and a half million Commonwealth immigrants and their descendants. … There is no comparable official figure for the year 2000, but it must be in the region of five to seven million, approximately one-tenth of the whole population, and approaching that of Greater London. Of course, it will not be evenly distributed… Whole areas, towns and parts of towns across England will be occupied by sections of the immigrant and immigrant-descended population. … It is like watching a nation busily engaged in heaping up its own funeral pyre. …
      I am going to allow just one of those hundreds of people to speak for me: “The immigrants moved in [to her neighborhood]. With growing fear, she saw one house after another taken over. The quiet street became a place of noise and confusion. Regretfully, her white tenants moved out. … [For refusing to rent to blacks] windows are broken. She finds excreta pushed through her letter box. When she goes to the shops, she is followed by children, charming, wide-grinning piccaninnies. They cannot speak English, but one word they know. “Racialist,” they chant. When the new Race Relations Bill is passed, this woman is convinced she will go to prison.” …
      Now, at all times, where there are marked physical differences, especially of colour, integration is difficult though, over a period, not impossible. … But to imagine that such a thing [integration] enters the heads of a great and growing majority of immigrants and their descendants is a ludicrous misconception, and a dangerous one. … ‘The Sikh communities’ campaign to maintain customs inappropriate in Britain is much to be regretted. …
      As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding; like the Roman, I seem to see “the River Tiber foaming with much blood.”
      That tragic and intractable phenomenon which we watch with horror on the other side of the Atlantic but which there is interwoven with the history and existence of the States itself, is coming upon us here by our own volition and our own neglect. Indeed, it has all but come. In numerical terms, it will be of American proportions long before the end of the century.”
  • Prett much fully forgotten outside of Great Britain, but the British do remember him:
    • November 12, 2014,BBC’s Question Time, debate between Russell Brand and the Euroskeptic, anti-immigration Nigel Farage: “I sometimes almost feel worried about you, Nigel Farage. … Farage is pointing at immigrants and the disabled and holding his nose. Immigrants are not causing the economic problems and suffering that we are experiencing. … He is a poundshop Enoch Powell and we ought to watch him. …
      “[We’ve seen] cuts against the poorest among us, the disabled, people that we need to be looking after. We need to close tax loopholes that are exploited by big corporations.”

  • Prime minister of Hungary 1998-2000 and again since 2010.
  • Accused of introducing “soft fascism” by the liberal media for suppressing opposition parties. This may or may not be an overstatement.
  • In contrast to Trump, actually a populist who gets things done:
    • Constructed a fence along the southern border of Hungary in 2015, which effectively halted illegal and legal immigration into his country during the height of the immigration crisis
    • Initiated social programs in 2019 to up the native birth rate (suggested as a major part of the solution since 2017 by ISGP’s Center for Responsible Immigration).

[He] is being held responsible by Orban, for example, for the incursion of millions of refugees into Europe. Correspondent Tijn Sadee is making a report about the origins of the hate against Soros.”
  • Still added as a “maybe” to the “conservative CIA” oversight, because Orban’s past liberal establishment ties:
    • In 1997 Viktor Orban was on the founding advisory board of American Enterprise Institute-founded New Atlantic Initiative. Orban was flanked here by the elite of the elite, boith neocon and traditional liberal establishment, all of them chaired by Henry Kissinger.
    • (accessed: March 6, 2018): “Dr. Orbán Viktor: … From April 1988, supported by the Soros Foundation… From September 1989 supported by the Soros Foundation with a scholarship at Oxford’s Pembroke College to study the history of liberal political philosophy [with Hegelian political philosopher Zbigniew Pelczynski, who also taught Bill Clinton and Walter Isaacson];”
    • 2013, US-UK Fulbright Commission and Oxford Thinking, ‘Extending the Fulbright Legacy’, p. 4: “Former Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, and current Polish Foreign Minister, Radoslaw Sikorski … received tutorials from Dr Zbigniew Pelczynski, who also taught former President Bill Clinton while he was studying at Oxford.”
    • April 17, 1999, The Independent, ‘New Kids on the Bloc’: “Snapping at the heels of politicians such as Viktor Orban and Tamas Deutsch is an even younger generation of would-be MPs and political leaders, in their 20s, or even their teens. In Poland they study at the School for Leaders, in downtown Warsaw. It was set up by Professor Zbigniew Pelczynski, who taught at Oxford University for 40 years and was a one-time tutor there to Bill Clinton and Viktor Orban.”
  • EU governments are protecting Soros’ activities through their media, with unfortunately even prominent criticism not coming from total outsiders:


  • Real name of the Unabomber is Ted Kaczynski. From 1978 to 1995 the Unabomber carried out 16 mail order bombings to individuals who represented some kind of modern technology. In 1979 Kaczynski even tried to bring down an airliner with 72 people on board, a plot that failed due to a faulty timer.
  • His manifesto, Industrial Society and its Future, was published by the New York Times and the Washington Post on September 19, 1995, in return for a promise to cease sending additional bomb packages. Kaczynski’s sister recognized his writing style, leading to his arrest.
  • The Unabomber’s manifesto is generally tied to worries about technology getting out of control. However, upon reading his manifesto this author was shocked to see little more than cookie-cutter “conservative CIA” propaganda, of the kind that has only become more entrenched today, mainly due to Third World immigration. The beliefs of the Unabomber on these issues are essentially the same as the (CIA-tied) MAGA Bomber of 2018.
    • September 19, 1995, Unabomber Manifesto in the New York Times and the Washington Post: “One of the most wide-spread manifestations of the craziness of our world is leftism… Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong, good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality. …
      Political correctness has its stronghold among university professors… When someone interprets as derogatory almost anything that is said about him (or about groups with whom be identifies) we conclude that he has inferiority feelings or low self-esteem. This tendency is pronounced among minority rights advocates… Feminists are desperately anxious to prove that women are as strong and capable as men. Clearly they are nagged by a fear that women may not be as strong and as capable as men. …
      Today, in those universities where leftists have become dominant, they have shown themselves ready to take away from everyone else’s academic freedom. (This is “political correctness.”) The same will happen with leftists and technology: They will use it to oppress everyone else if they ever get it under their own control. … Leftism is a totalitarian force. Wherever leftism is in a position of power it tends to invade every private corner and force every thought into a leftist mold. …
      With regard to revolutionary strategy, the only points on which we absolutely insist are that the single overriding goal must be the elimination of modern technology…”
  • Obviously Kaczynski was accurate if we look at Silicon Valley companies as Facebook, Instagram, Google, Apple, etc. They all engage in censorship in favor of “leftism”, but the manner in which the Unabomber – supposedly with an IQ of 167 – describes this agenda only deserves to discredit and ridicule, something “the right” basically always is doing.
  • The Unabomber has been discussed in much more detail in ISGP’s Psychedelics & Elitism article, including his Harvard and MKULTRA background.

  • Conservative extremist named Cesar Altieri Randazzo / Cesar Sayoc who in late October 2018 sent semi-working bomb packages to a variety of leading Democrats: Barack Obama, Obama’s former vice president Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, billionaire globalist George Soros and the super-globalist Hollywood actor Robert De Niro, former Obama CIA Director John Brennan and other globalist-Democrat elites. Another target was CNN.
  • Bizarrely the MAGA Bomber was riding around in a van plastered on all sides with “conservative CIA” propaganda that should basically have immediately attracted the full attention of the FBI, CIA and any local Florida police services (people were photographing it all over the place). On his sticker compilations, the MAGA Bomber featured top “liberal CIA” assets Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Van Jones and Michael Moore all in crosshairs. Most people also would have mistaken the “Native Americans for Trump” flag with the one of Germany (Nazis).
  • A video also surfaced of Sayoc at a Donald Trump rally rabidly screaming with a group of fellow-activists “CNN Sucks! CNN sucks! CNN sucks!”, fists in the air. This is suspicious of “conservative CIA” propaganda. Already over the year before I wondered why CNN was singled out so much by known conspiracy disinformers as being the source of all evil, the CIA-tied Eddie Bravo in particular coming to mind.
  • In various videos of his downloaded by people before his social media accounts were taken down, Sayoc is kinda hard to understand and incoherent, giving off a forced happy-go-lucky vibe – but only when alone it appears. He might well have been on anti-depressants.
  • Acted as the usual incoherent Twitter and Facebook troll, of which there are many thousands. These people literally come across as a combination of brainwashed Manchurian candidates and spambots.
    • Screenshots of a variety of social media posts of Cesar Sayoc.
    • October 9, 2018, 3:49 a.m. post of Cesar Altieri (Sayoc), @hardrock2016 on Twitter: “We Unconquered Seminole Tribe,Hard Rock, Millions upon millions customers Seminole vets,Seminoke American Top TEam MMA.(Absolutely say no way ever to Progressive democratic high taxes and High Crime.Gillum can’t handle his own city Tallahassee Fl Leon county highest crime everc”
    • October 19, 2018 post of Cesar Altieri (Sayoc), @hardrock2016 on Twitter: “You biggest piece crap media TMZ , that were complete silent Obama separating kids . Shut your hole TMZ before u end like media slime Saudi Arabia. No one deserves it better than fake fraud Washington Amazin owned post . We Unconquered Seminole Tribe agree”
    • October 19, 2018 post of Cesar Altieri (Sayoc), @hardrock2016 on Twitter (retweet of picture, so not incoherent): “Back by George Soros: Democratic candidate for Florida Governor, Andrew Gillum, admits he takes money from Soros.” In 2018 Andrew Gillum was the favorite (black) “liberal CIA” political candidate of Black Lives Matter and rappers as P. Diddy to become governor of Florida “Liberal CIA” asset Bernie Sanders endorsed him as well.
  • Conspiracy disinformer with all the usual theories:
    • October 30, 2018, CNN, ‘The radicalization of an alleged domestic terrorist’: “He tweeted about a wide array of baseless conspiracy theories, including “Pizzagate;” “chemtrails [“The Chemtrails Must Stop! Geoengineering Must Be Terminated!”];” birtherism, and a number of posts regarding billionaire and liberal philanthropist George Soros. …
      He tweeted 50 times about Parkland shooting survivors in 2018, including spreading the false conspiracy theories that shooting survivor David Hogg was a crisis actor working with Soros and that he wasn’t in school at the time of the shooting, and also tweeted digitally altered pictures of Hogg in a Nazi uniform. Sayoc sent at least four threats to at Hogg. …
      Sayoc occasionally seemed to copy the president’s rhetoric. … Sayoc, in a tweet directed at Fox News’ Chris Wallace wrote, “The Press is enemy.””
  • So unprofessional that Googlers immediately found the account of the Cesar Sayoc after the first pictures of the bomb packages were made available by typing the full name on one of the packages: “Joseph Robinnette Biden Jr.” It led them straight to a month old Twitter death threat of Sayoc to Biden:
    • September 18, 2018, 2:55 p.m. post of Cesar Altieri (Sayoc), @hardrock2016 on Twitter, in reply to a tweet of Biden: “Piece slime trash. Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.U like make threats run mouth wannabe tough guy.We Unconquered Seminole Tribe going answer your threats.We have Air boat tour of our Swamp,Everglades4 U.Hug your loved son,Niece,wife real close everytime U walk out your home” Screenshot of the post and those who discovered it.
  • The MAGA Bomber can actually be tied to the CIA. In the hours before Cesar Randazzo’s Facebook account was removed, a September 16, 2016 post of him could be observed in which he wished a friend a “happy birthday and lifetime from CIA.” Based on the phrasing, it appears that Randazzo was giving out a happy birthday as a fellow (ex-)CIA asset/officer part of a group of such individuals. The post was accompanied by pictures from military school, probably of the two men together.
    • September 16, 2016, 6:12 p.m., Cesar Randazzo (MAGA Bomber) post on Facebook: “I would like to wish my great friend from Academy 9 yrs military school Ricki a happy birthday and lifetime from CIA. Congrats on your invention many successes my brother.”
    • By the time this author went looking, Cesar’s Facebook page already was deleted, so it was impossible to figure out who this “Ricki” is or even to 100% confirm that this post was made. However, two completely separate sources were found who screenshotted the post in question when it was still accessible (based on the online conversations going on). Through Webarchive and other sources it was possible to figure out that profile and other pictures on Cesar Randazzo’s account completely matched the one found in the screenshots of the post in question. Thus, there’s little doubt that Randazzo indeed wished a friend a “happy birthday and lifetime from CIA.”
    • Update: while writing this oversight, it turns out that the second screenshot (I believe from a desktop instead of a mobile phone) is corrupted, quite possibly because I downloaded it straight from the net instead of screencapturing it. The internet is too clogged now to find it back.
    • Whether or not the MAGA Bomber indeed has an official or unofficial CIA background remains the question, although his cookie-cutter Conservative CIA activism suggests he had some form of Agency ties. Someone must have been employing him as a troll.
  • This bombing attempt hit very close home to ISGP for a number of reasons, all of which could be used as an excuse by search engines to lower ISGP’s ranking (Google has done so – endlessly):
    • It was just a week before that ISGP’s Liberal CIA: Hollywood article was published, in which De Niro’s globalist propaganda is extensively discussed.
    • ISGP’s liberal CIA biographies on Hillary Clinton and especially Barack Obama were finished in 2017 and updated here and there in 2018.
    • Joe Biden’s pedophile tendencies and hypocrisy regarding a #metoo-tied PSA on sexual abuse had only just been added to ISGP’s bio on Lady Gaga, still very low-profile at the time of the MAGA Bomber affair.
    • A few weeks earlier, this author wondered on digital paper why George Soros in particular has never been targeted by this supposedly giant army of gun-loving “patriots” that exists in the United States, especially now Soros has become the villain of the “alt-right” over the past few years (for good reason, although there is a much wider network at play). Every act of “resistance” has always come from total crazies, if not intelligence assets, from Timothy McVeigh to the Unabomber. This type of (low-profile) philosophizing was removed for a number of reasons, but a few weeks later: Bang! There’s the MAGA bomber.

      The call netted the American Spectator $1.7 million in Scaife foundation grants over the next four years and helped the magazine produce stories about alleged philandering, corruption and cover-ups during Clinton’s governorship.”

  • Libertarian conservative news site founded by Andrew Breitbart (unexpectedly died in 2012 at age 43) in 2005, who had been working as an assistant to Matt Drudge of The Drudge Report almost from the start in 1995, after contacting Drudge through email. Breitbart continued to contribute to The Drudge Report even after 2005.
    • March 1, 2012, Forbes, ‘Huffington, Drudge and Beck on Andrew Breitbart’s Death’: “In the first decade of the DRUDGEREPORT Andrew Breitbart was a constant source of energy, passion and commitment. We shared a love of headlines, a love of the news, an excitement about what’s happening. I don’t think there was a single day during that time when we did not flash [instant message] each other or laugh with each other, or challenge each other.”
  • It might not be insignificant to mention that by 1997-1998 The Drudge Report was allied with the historically Olin, Bradley, Scaife and Mercer-funded David Horowitz Freedom Center (then known as the Center for the Study of Popular Culture). In early 1998 this Center set up a legal defense fund for Matt Drudge to protect him from a Clinton administration law suit.
  • In 2005-2006 Breitbart aided in the creation of the “liberal CIA” “new left” Huffington Post news website, which is quite fascinating considering Arianna Huffington already fronted for George Soros with the 2000 Shadow Conferences, with the launch of the Huffington Post tied to Soros employees as well.
    • March 25, 2011, New York Magazine, ‘Arianna Huffington Finally Turns on Andrew Breitbart’: “It was always an eyebrow-raising relationship: Arianna Huffington, the Republican turned ultraliberal, palling around with Andrew Breitbart, the Matt Drudge acolyte who grew into his own rabble-rouser of the right. Huffington brought on Breitbart to help develop her fledgling website, the Huffington Post, back in 2005. Drudge had introduced the two, back when Arianna was on his political team…
      After the Daily Caller published an interview [yesterday] in which Breitbart called former White House adviser [and top black “liberal CIA” agent] Van Jones a “commie punk,” a “cop killer-supporting, racist, demagogic freak,” a “cockroach,” and a “human toxin,” Huffington agreed to take his works off the HuffPo homepage.”
  • In 2007 Breitbart’s childhood friend, the Russian-Jewish Larry Solov, became general counsel to Breitbart News. After Andrew’s death in March 2012, Solov became the main owner, CEO and president of the news site, with director Steve Bannon becoming executive chairman of Breitbart that same year.
  • Similar to the “conservative CIA”-funded David Horowitz Freedom Center (originally known as the Center for the Study of Popular Culture), which was backing Andrew Breitbart’s Drudge Report in the late 1990s, Andrew Breitbart was primarily interested in discussing liberal influence on western culture in places as Hollywood and higher education. Under Bannon, the focus rapidly shifted towards daily politics. Key staffers of Andrew Breitbart left the paper as a result.
    • January 10, 2018, Breitbart, ‘The monster Steve Bannon created at was not what Andrew Breitbart wanted’.
  • An undercover “underage prostitution operation” of Breitbart at ACORN in 2009 led to the shut down of this NGO in 2010. Andrew Breitbart’s famous tweets at the time, including “underage sex slave op[eration] cover-upperer” and tells you immediately the type of fake news conservatives love to put out.
  • U.S. Alexa rank of 259 in December 2018.
  • Bannon started to politically mentor Robert Mercer, the ultraconservative conspiracy disinformation-pushing founder of the Mercer Family Foundation, persuading him, among other things, to invest $10 million in Breitbart, which, for the rest, has been a very successful news site, despite a degree of (the usual) fake news and endless accusations of “xenophobia”, etc.
    • March 27, 2017, The New Yorker, ‘The Reclusive Hedge-Fund Tycoon Behind the Trump Presidency; How Robert Mercer exploited America’s populist insurgency’: “As far back as 2012, Bannon was the Mercers’ de-facto political adviser. … … He also encouraged the investment in Breitbart News. … He put ten million dollars into Breitbart News…”

    • Richard Warner Carlson’s name appears in the 1995, 2002, 2014 Pilgrims Society lists (not in a 1990 one; in 1995 David Rockefeller still was a member, as were Henry Kissinger, George Shultz and other elites).
    • Associate director of the U.S> Information Agency (USIA) and director of its Voice of America 1986-1991.
    • November 11, 1988, Los Angeles Times, ‘It’s a Different Story Now for Ex-Newsman’: “Whether it was the anti-Vietnam War movement, the emergence of the Black Panthers or Soviet trawler-spies off the Golden Gate, Carlson was often the first with the most. His story linking San Francisco Mayor Joe Alioto to the mob ended Alioto’s political dreams (and spawned a libel suit that helped kill Look magazine). …
      Of late, Carlson has been jousting with free-lance writer and ex-VOA staffer Carolyn Weaver… Weaver asserts that the VOA, which broadcasts to 130 million people around the world, has been one-sided and pro-Administration in its reporting on Dan Quayle, Iran-contra, apartheid and Central America.
      Weaver alleges the VOA was cozy with Oliver North and may have played Rod Stewart records and Russian folk tunes to send secret messages. She implies that Carlson eased out (or allowed to be eased out) a correspondent seen as too sympathetic to the imprisoned South African activist Nelson Mandela.”

  • Conservative-inclined news aggregation/link website founded in 1995 by the Libertarian Matt Drudge, who hired a 2.5 years younger Andrew Breitbart later in 1995 as his chief assistant (for the next decade). Possibly the most horrible-looking successful website in the history of the internet: it basically hasn’t upgraded in design since the 1990s, but still has a huge U.S. Alexa rank of 119 as of September 2018.
  • Drudge is son of a staff attorney for U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy (major “liberal CIA” family, with RFK, Jr. even spreading conspiracy disinformation related to his father’s and uncle’s murders) until sickness in the early 1980s forced her to resign. No clear tie between his mother’s job and Drudge later appearing as a “conservative CIA” asset. Raised Jewish, but not a Jew. Horrible childhood.
    • September 3, 2007, New York Magazine, ‘Watching Matt Drudge’: “About the time Drudge failed bar mitzvah, his mother left her job as a staff attorney for Ted Kennedy, where she had worked on health issues… [Around April 1982] when Drudge was 15, crisis rocked the family. His mother was hospitalized, and a few weeks later [June 18] Drudge was arrested [for stalking/harassment].”
  • Didn’t go anywhere career-wise. His father bought him his first PC, on which Drudge created his website in 1995, often uploading gossip notes he found in the trashcan at his low-level day job at CBS.
  • By 1997 he was posting a good amount of conservative smear stories on the Clinton family. In early 1998 he broke the Lewinsky Scandal by reporting that Newsweek was sitting on a story of Bill Clinton’s affair with a White House intern – forcing Newsweek to publish the story. After more smear stories he was sued by the Clinton administration, magically prompting the historically Olin, Bradley, Scaife and Mercer-funded David Horowitz Freedom Center (then known as the Center for the Study of Popular Culture) to set up a legal defense fund for him and Horowitz making the rounds in the media to promote Drudge, who soon became a famous figure. This entire network was the key driver behind all the Clinton conspiracy mongering, some of which accurate, some of which completely overblown, and some of which simply invented.
    • (accessed: February 9, 1998): “Matt Drudge, the Internet gadfly who broke the Clinton scandal, is under attack. Matt Drudge Defense Fund and Information Center.”
    • (accessed: February 9, 1998): “When the Clinton White House slapped Drudge with a $30 million libel suit last fall as part of its standard operations policy of deny, defy and, above all, act quickly to silence opposition by any means necessary — it was the Center that rallied to his cause. The Center provided Drudge with its own staff attorney, Patrick Manshardt, and its legal adviser Manuel Klausner to be his defense team on a pro bono basis. The Center established the Matt Drudge Defense Fund and Information Center (800-752-6562) to provide the facts in the case and to establish a battle station for the war.
      The DRUDGE REPORT ( is a one-man, $30,000 a year operation that has won national attention as a media upstart. … Drudge had reported irreverently on the President’s reelection campaign in 1996. But the real crime that made Drudge the focus of White House attack was that Drudge was also the reporter who broke the original story of Kathleen Willey, the woman Clinton groped in the Oval Office who was observed by Linda Tripp, who thus became a witness in the Paula Jones case and a confidant of Monica Lewinsky.
      It was shortly after his scoop appeared that the White House tried to silence Drudge for good. The occasion was his report that Republicans were claiming they had information that former left-wing journalist and now Presidential aide Sidney Blumenthal had been involved in spousal abuse. Drudge reported the rumor and also the White House allegation that it was “pure fiction.” Within hours, he received a letter from Blumenthal’s attorney demanding that he reveal the source of the allegations.
      Drudge refused to disclose his sources, as any reputable journalist would, but immediately removed the story from the Internet, and issued a retraction. But the object was to get him, not to get an apology, and within days Blumenthal, acting with the consent and approval of Bill Clinton and Al Gore, filed a suit for $30 million in damages.”
  • Provided with a Fox News televesion show in the June 1998 to November 1999 period called Drudge. Eventually the two parties split up after Drudge was going too extreme and manipulative with his anti-abortion propaganda.
  • From 2000 to September 2007 Drudge hosted his own radio program, The Drudge Report, on Premiere Radio Networks (owned by the CIA and Blackwater-tied Clear Channel, today known as iHeartMedia). In this period he guest hosted for Rush Limbaugh and was frequenly mentioned as a source by neocon extremists as Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage.
    • October 1, 2003, Salon, ‘Matt Drudge, GOP scourge?’: “”Oh, how we wish he [Reagan] would descend from St. Cloud Street and save us from this monster government that’s being created — under Republicans!” Drudge told his radio audience on Sept. 20. “The consolidation of this government and the expansion of this government, the databasing of our lives, the cameras being put all over — is, is creeping me out.””
  • This author first heard about The Drudge Report in the mid 2000s after seeing the CIA-tied conspiracy disinformation guru Alex Jones repeatedly fawn all over it and linking to it. It wasn’t until 2015 that Matt Drudge appeared on the Alex Jones Show, which is fascinating considering Jones’ extremely irrational bahavior and bizarre conspiracy mongering. Then again, Donald Trump appeared a few months later on the Alex Jones Show.
    • October 7, 2015, Matt Drudge on the Alex Jones Show, 9:45: “Not everyone is cut from the same genetic background as you or I, Alex. Of being brave and being able to stand up. You are on the camera. I’m not. You are more brave than I am. … You have done a wonderful arc, almost over decades now, explaining why people are, and have become, so sick. I would just like to wake people up.
      Stop playing in THEIR background! … People are willing to be made over in the image of these corporations. … [With YouTube] you are playing in Google’s Hellpit. Make your own place. … The internet allows you to make your own dynamic, your own universe; gravitating towards somebody else’s universe. … Between a Slate or a Salon or a BuzzFeed or a HuffPo — what is the difference? There isn’t any! …
      I had a supreme court justice tell me to my face that it’s over for me. “Matt, it’s over you. They have got the votes now to enforce copyright law. You are outta there. They are gonna make it so that you can’t even use headlines.” …
      I can’t be controlled. There are no interests here but what I see as the world events. Period. … I’ve never placed an ad anywhere. This has all been a true, organic reader to reader to reader [website]… Yes, I dabbled in the corporate with the Fox News show and the ClearChannel radio show for 9 years. But even then, the website was on its own terms.”

  • Conservative news station and news website, founded in 1996, and part of a larger entertainment network owned by Rupert Murdoch and sons.
  • A rumor exists that back in the early to mid 1970s Rupert Murdoch was recruited by the CIA’s most notorious black operative, Ted Shackley (who eventually oversaw the notorious Cercle group), while still a small newspaper man in Australia. Shackley was involved in the region until 1972 as one of the overseers of the Australia-based Nugan Hand Bank, which (allegedly) was laundering heroin profits for the CIA.
    • By Sterling Seagrave, Aug 22 2007, 06:43 PM post: “[OSS man and later CIA director] Bill Casey was one of the key men in the acquisition of media after WW2. It was one of his proteges (a young German immigrant to the US) who was sent back to Germany after the war to take over Bertelsmann and build it up. Rupert Murdoch was very tight with [Ted] Shackley, which is how he got launched on his global acquisitions and has now taken over the WSJ. Murdoch was running a failed national newspaper in Australia while Shackley was station chief in Oz. Then suddenly he becomes a US citizen literally overnight and goes on an endless buying spree. Shackley’s pockets were infinitely deep. At the time, Murdoch was facing the likely closure of his newspaper THE AUSTRALIAN. His ticket out was Shackley. This also explains why Murdoch was allowed to break all the rules in acquisition of media in America.
      [David McLean addition (unverified): “In the run-up to the 1972 election, Murdoch’s paper The Australian was a keen Whitlam supporter, donating some $75,000 in free advertising. By 1975, with Peer de Silva, John Denley Walker and Milton Wonus CIA station chiefs, Murdoch had turned savagely against the Labor government, to the extent there were demonstrations outside The Australian’s Sydney offices. Murdoch’s role was part of a longer-term CIA operation to destroy Labor’s powerful leftwing and install Bob Hawke and his CIA-affiliated cronies in the NSW Right faction, who hosted Bernie Houghton and the merry band called Nugan Hand. Shackley and Walker particularly despised Whitlam who had tolerated the left and believed in Australia’s sovereignty!””

    • April 28, 2015, The Guardian, ‘How Thatcher and Murdoch made their secret deal’.
  • Then, in January 1983, CIA and possibly Mossad asset Roy Cohn – a director of the ultraright Western Goals Foundation (and close to the Donald Trump family, as well as Roger Stone) – brought Murdoch to the Reagan White House, where a deal was made that Murdoch would build a conservative media empire that would support the fight against the Nicaraguan Sandinistas and that would counter the extreme liberal bias of the media.
    • June 19, 2016, Consortium News, ‘How Roy Cohn Helped Rupert Murdoch’.
  • There are also reports of the Rothschild and British intelligencet-tied Sir James Goldsmith visiting the Reagan White House with Rupert Murdoch from 1983 on:
    • October 9, 1998, John Pilger for The New Statesman, p15: “… a meeting in the White House in March 1983. Attended by Murdoch and the late Sir James Goldsmith…”
    • November 2, 1990, Executive Intelligence Review, ”Green mole’ Sir James Goldsmith becomes top ecofascist warrior’: “A former senior Reagan National Security Council (NSC) staffer recalls giving a private briefing to Sir James and media mogul Rupert Murdoch on U.S. arms control policy in the office of Kenneth deGraffenreid, then head of Intelligence Programs at the NSC.”
  • Reported financier of “The 61” / 6I, a private intelligence network tied to the CIA, MI6, mainland European intelligence services, Le Cercle Pinay, and the Vatican.
    • May 1, 1995, The Persbundel, ‘Pioneer for the Truth’ (translated from Dutch; a publication clearly part of the insider Cercle network based on its ultraright bias): “From 1979-1989 the members of ‘The 61’ [including Crozier] did all they could to fight the communist, anywhere in the world. The costs on average were 1 million dollars a year, coming from fortunate friends as Rupert Murdoch, Sir James Goldsmith and Richard [Mellon] Scaife.”
  • It’s very interesting that Rupert Murdoch has always been so at home at the predominantly liberal Democrat Sun Valley Meetings – for decades at this point, bringing his sons annually.
  • One of these sons,. James, even joined the ultraliberal (“liberal CIA”) Vice Media board after the Murdoch family acquired a 5% stake.
    • November 21, 2013, Hollywood Reporter, ’21st Century Fox Deputy COO James Murdoch Joins Vice Media Board’: “Vice Media, in which Fox this summer acquired a 5 percent [$70 million] stake.”
  • The wife of Rupert Murdoch son James apparently is the half-sister of one of the earliest leading 9/11 “Truth” disinformers Eric Hufschmid.
  • Also interesting is that Murdoch, since the time of Al Gore’s hyper-prominent 2006 movie, supported the issue of countering man-made climate change. And also that at the time he was hosting a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, another issue that is not exactly popular among conservatives. At the same time, Murdochs media outlets have been very wishy-washy on climate change, even more than ten years later.
    • November 17, 2006, Columbia Journalism Review, ‘Murdoch Goes Green, and His Empire Follows’: “At a Tokyo press conference last week, the conservative media mogul announced that he is now in favor of an international treaty to halt the progress of global warming. …
      Cassidy’s 8,000-word feature was centered on a fundraiser that Murdoch held for Hillary Clinton at News Corp.’s Manhattan offices… Cassidy also reports that Murdoch has donated over half a million dollars to the Clinton Foundation’s Climate Initiative, and that he has declared his intention to make News Corp. a “carbon neutral” company.”
    • January 19, 2016,, ‘Rupert Murdoch is marrying a climate hawk’: “We have the actress and model who had four children with the Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger (and who has argued “climate change is the biggest threat the world has ever seen”) getting engaged to … Rupert Murdoch [whose] NewsCorp empire, which includes Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, “[has] become the nation’s leading source of disinformation about climate change.””

  • Ultraconservative magazine founded in 1988, as the main publication of the historically Olin, Bradley, Scaife and Mercer-funded David Horowitz Freedom Center – also founded in 1988.
  • David Horowitz has been the main force behind this magazine for all these decades. Ann Coulter was among the columnists of Frontpage Magazine in the 2000s.
  • Frontpage Magazine is probably the premier publication attacking George Soros as a key financier of “the left” (instead of “liberal CIA”). At the time of Occupy Wall Street, the Tides Foundation was also regularly attacked.
  • Issues of white guilt have been prominent with the publication since the 1990s.

  • Old guard conservative magazine and website, founded in 1955 by recently “retired” deep cover CIA agent William Buckley, Jr. The publication has always been only moderately conservative and served as a somewhat acceptable buffer between the Eastern Etablishment (of which Buckley solidly became part in the mid 1970s) and the more fanatic Christian conservatives with their anti-Eastern Establishment John Birch Society thinking. Hence, the National Review has always been nearly as criticial of Donald Trump as the dominant liberal media.
  • The website has a U.S. Alexa rank of 1,400 as of February 2019.
  • William Buckley, Jr. (1925-2008) was a key founder of the traditional Cold War conservative movement, initially based on his book God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of “Academic Freedom”, in which – while, incredibly still a deep cover CIA agent – he argued that the Yale leadership was far more socialist, atheist and Keynesian than many of the students. The book became widely-read and resulted in Buckley becoming the face of the moderate, establishment conservative movement as founder of the National Review in 1955 and later, in 1966, as Firing Line founder and presenter, a position he held until 1999.
    • March 4, 2007, Los Angeles Times, ‘My friend, E. Howard Hunt’: “I met E. Howard Hunt soon after arriving in Mexico City in 1951. I was a deep-cover agent for the CIA — deep-cover describing, I was given to understand, a category whose members were told to take extreme care not to permit any grounds for suspicion that one was in service to the CIA.
      One was informed which single human being in the city knew that you were in the CIA. That person would tell you what to do for the duration of your service in that city… The man I was told to report to (by someone whose real name I did not know) was E. Howard Hunt. … He would here and there give me special minor assignments, but I soon learned that my principal job was to translate from Spanish a huge and important book by [communist] defector Eudocio Ravines. …
      My book, “God and Man at Yale,” was published in mid-October 1951 [when I was a deep cover CIA agent]…
      In early spring of 1952, when the project with Ravines was pretty well completed, I called on Howard to tell him I had decided to quit the agency. I had yielded to the temptation to go into journalism. …
      [Later] she and Howard were joining the Catholic communion, and they asked me to serve as godfather for their children. … Then came the Watergate scandal [and] the dreadful accident [or “accident”] over Midway Airport in Chicago that killed Dorothy in December 1972. … Then I had a phone call from Howard, with whom I hadn’t been in touch for several years. He asked to see me [to tell Hunt about a probably BS Nixon plot to kill liberal columnist Jack Anderson].”
  • Buckley, Jr. was an incredible elitist, apart from his CIA “deep cover” position under E. Howard Hunt in the 1951-1952 period: Yale Skull & Bones member, Knight of Malta, CFR member and Bilderberg visitor. In the final years of his life he was to be found on one of the boards of Conrad Black’s super-elite Hollinger Group, along with Kissinger, Brzezinski, the Rothschilds and more openly-known neocon elites as Richard Perle (and Black himself).
    • July/August 1983, Mother Jones, ‘Their Will Be Done’: “[William] Casey and [Alexander] Haig are both members of the Knights of Malta, a legendary Vatican order dating back to the Crusades… There are many other knights with CIA connections. Clare Boothe Luce, for example… William Buckley, Jr. … is a member, as is his brother James… “It has no political function,” asserts former CIA director William Colby, who declined an invitation to join the illustrious order. (“I’m a little lower key,” he confessed.) … John McCone, a member of the SMOM and [1960s] director of the CIA…”
    • Buckley, Jr. was invited to the CFR in 1965, but unknown (anti-conservative) members blocked it. Eventually joined in 1973. Source can be found below.
    • Buckley, Jr. visited Bilderberg in 1975 and 1996, the latter time as “Editor-at-Large, National Review. …
      Pope Pius’ [1944] decoration of Wild Bill Donovan marked the beginning of a long-standing, intimate relation-ship between the Vatican and U.S. intelligence that continues to the present day.”
    • 1988, John B. Judis, ‘William F. Buckley, Jr.: Patron Saint of the Conservatives’: “In 1974, he had accepted an invitation to join the Council on Foreign Relations, the organization that had always epitomized for the far Right the eastern upper class’s hold over foreign policy. .. Buckley had been nominated for membership in the Council on Foreign Relations in 1965, but was blackballed–by whom, Buckley never found out. …
      Under Burnham and Kissinger’s influence, Buckley no longer shared the Right’s enmity toward Nelson Rockefeller. When Gerald Ford nominated Rockefeller to be his Vice-President in August 1974, Buckley, who had urged him to nominate former U.N. Ambassador George Bush [fellow Skull & Bones and fellow-CIA], nonetheless defended Ford’s choice. Buckley argued that Rockefeller was a good choice precisely because of his appeal to Democrats and Independents, which would help Ford to “stabilize” the country after the “great dislocation” of Watergate. And he defended Rockefeller against his conservative critics.”

    • June 1, 2017, National Review, ‘Buckley Captained Conservatism Before It Was Hijacked’: “Buckley famously said he would rather be governed by the first 2,000 names in the Boston telephone directory than by Harvard’s faculty, but he briskly defended the Council on Foreign Relations from “those American right-wingers who specialize in ignorance.” “All his life,” Felzenberg writes, “Buckley walked a tightrope between elitism and populism,” never resolving the tension between them. If only he had.”

    • October 8, 1973, Lawrence Journal-World, William F. Buckley Jr. (originally for the Washington Star Syndicate), ‘Buchanan Punctures Probe of Watergate’: “The New York Times, in high hysteria over the devastating performance of [John Birch Society ally Pat] Buchanan, excreted an editorial called “Anatomy of a Smear” [denouncing Buchanan who said] that the foundations in this country are, for the most part, left-minded, and tend to favor left-minded people and enterprises. Buchanan then named the Ford Foundation, its support for the Institute for Policy Studies, and the IPS’s support of an underground-type radical paper called the [pro-feminist, Black Panther, etc. – and thus rabidly-antifa] “Quicksilver Times.” Well, it transpires that the Ford Foundation only gave a few thousand dollars to IPS, back in 1964, and that IPS hasn’t given any money to “Quicksilver Times.””
      Fact is, the Institute for Policy Studies had solid Rockefeller and Ford foundation ties through the elite employers of the founders. It also received millions from foundations as Ford, Soros, Rockefeller and others in later decades, certainly from the 1990s. Also, the Eastern Establishment most certainly is liberal elite. Buckley is simply doing basic “debunking” here, refusing to look at the bigger picture.
    • An association with the Heritage Foundation, but not too deep.
  • The basis of the Buckley family’s fortunes go back to William Buckley, Sr. (1881-1958), an oil explorer who became particularly rich from selling his oil to the Rockefeller family’s Standard Oil, this after a 1939 or 1940 handshake deal, an unsual compromise made after five days of negotiating.
    • 1991, Ellen Sue Blakey, ‘To the Waters and the Wild: Petroleum Geology 1918 to 1941’: “William Buckley, former lawyer and independent oil operator in Tampico, headed the Pantepec Oil Company of Mexico. He was accused several times of plotting to overthrow the Mexican Government, which did not see eye-to-eye with his interests. He was expelled from Mexico in 1921 as a result of his political maneuverings. [His family says Buckley was the only trustworthy oilman around and was forced out of the country due to political schemes of Standard Oil and the likes.]”
    • 1987, Donald Carl Baldridge, ‘Mexican petroleum and United States-Mexican relations, 1919-1923’: “In 1913 he founded the Pantepec Oil Company of Mexico. Although a relatively small operation, the profits did not have to be shared and 42 Buckley soon accumulated a fortune. … For a time in 1921, Buckley published his own news bulletin. Mexicans, he said, except for the “better class,” lacked capacity for any occupation other than laboring for others. The constitution of 1917 particularly displeased Buckley who described this charter and the Revolution as the work of bandits. Because of the threat to private property in Article 27, Buckley maintained, the Constitution must be eliminated before it in infected all of western civilization.”
    • 2008, Reid Buckley, ‘An American Family: The Buckleys’, pp. 143-145: “Father had a low opinion of the Seven Sister, as Big Oil used to be alluded to in his times… He fought Standard Oil in Mexico and then later in Venezuela, on several levels. There is besides a persistent suspicion that it was a Mexican-based official of Standard Oil who hired the bandits who abducted him and Cecilio Valasco with the intention of killing them. But Father did not harbor grudges…
      He liked to tell the story of his negotiations with Standard Oil in 1939 or ’40, to which he wanted to sell the oil he had discovered in eastern Venezuela (and later under Lake Maracaibo). … It was David negotiating against Goliath. Standard Oil arrived at the offices in New York in the person of a vice president and, I think Father said, not fewer than three lawyers. [Father] knew that Standard Oil wanted his Pantepec oil as much, or almost as much, as he wanted to sell that oil to the company. … On the fifth morning, Father had yet another contract ready, which again totally unacceptable to the Standard Oil lawyers… [Now] there appeared then ten-president of Standard Oil (or of that division of Standard Oil). I do not recall his name. … When the lawyer had ceased shouting, this man said to Father, “Mr. Buckley, I think I know what you want, and I think you know what we want. What do you say we shake on it.” … “And there has never been a contract between us,” he would say proudly. “There has been no written contract between Standard Oil and Pantepec all these years, but both companies have kept their word.” … This deal was an unheard-of anomaly in the oil business. … “There was never a dispute of which I am aware until Pantepec ran out of oil to sell.” (I should add that many of us are largely still living off the fossil-fuel royalties…”

  • In the 1990s Ruddy was an anti-Clinton operative of the CIA-tied Richard Mellon Scaife, who put up much of the money to create Newsmax. Another initial invester was the daughter of controversial former CIA director William Casey, Bernadette Casey Smith. Similar to her father, she’s a Knight of Malta and member of the OSS Society, where she continues to hobnob with past and present CIA directors and the top of the special operations community. By the late 2000s Scaife and Ruddy were the sole owners of Newsmax.
    • March 6, 2014, Bloomberg, ‘The Next Ailes: Newsmax’s Chris Ruddy Preps TV Rival to Fox News’: “In 1998, [Christopher] Ruddy raised $300,000 from investors—his first $25,000 was from Central Intelligence Agency Director William Casey’s daughter Bernadette—and launched”
    • June 2, 2010, Media Matters for America, ‘The money behind Ruddy (and maybe Newsweek): Richard Mellon Scaife’: “Earlier today, Karl Frisch highlighted the interest of Newsmax’s Christopher Ruddy in buying Newsweek. While Newsmax makes rich Republicans its target demographic — according to Talkers magazine, 20 percent of its readership claims a net worth of $1 million or more — it likely doesn’t throw off enough money for Ruddy to purchase Newsweek without help. Enter Richard Mellon Scaife. Scaife, that longtime right-wing sugar daddy, has been Ruddy’s benefactor for well over a decade, since Ruddy brought his Clinton conspiracy-mongering to the Scaife-owned Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. When Ruddy started Newsmax in 1997, Scaife was among the original investors, and by 2002 he was the third-largest shareholder. Today, all the other shareholders have been bought out, and Scaife and Ruddy are the sole owners of Newsmax, with Ruddy holding a majority stake.”
  • Lord Rees-Mogg served as chairman of Newsmax 2000-2005. After that he became chairman of the advisory board. Former CIA director William Colby actually warned about Sen. John DeCamp about sticking his nose too deep in the affairs of Rees-Mogg and associates, implying they were dangerous, manipulative, intelligence-tied individuals.
    • December 29, 2012, ‘Lord Rees-Mogg, Former Chairman of Newsmax, Dies at 84’: “William Rees-Mogg, one of Britain’s leading journalists and a founding board member and chairman of Newsmax Media, has passed away in London at age 84. Lord Rees-Mogg served as Chairman of Newsmax’s Board of Directors beginning in January 2000 through 2005, then becoming chairman of the company’s international advisory board. … Christopher Ruddy [is] CEO and founder of Newsmax Media…
      Rees-Mogg co-authored three bestselling books with James Dale Davidson, founder of the National Taxpayers Union and also a founding board member of Newsmax.”
    • 2005 (second edition), Sen. John DeCamp, ‘The Franklin Cover-Up’, pp. 387-388: “At the time of his death, Bill [Colby] was working with Britain’s Lord William Rees-Mogg, and his American sidekick, James Dale Davidson [also of Newsmax], publishing a series of newsletters, on international events, financial opportunities, and politics [Strategic Investment]. In fact, he was working on an article for one of those newsletters when he [Colby] died [under strange circumstances].
      Rees-Mogg and Davidson are strange birds… After all, he [Rees-Mogg] used to write that in the coming age of society, an elite of 5% of the total population would rule over the other 95% as virtual slaves. But Rees-Mogg is not just nasty– he represents great power… On several occasions, when I saw Bill or spoke with him during the last year of his life, I’d ask him whether I should subscribe to his newsletter, or, whether he’d just give me a few copies to look over. He always told me not to waste my money. “Ask me about any situation your interested in, and I’ll give you as thorough a briefing as I possibly can. But don’t believe a word you read in that newsletter I’m writing for.”
      Strange. But, then again, Bill Colby spent his entire adult life in the shadow world of spies and counter-spies. Maybe his involvement with Rees-Mogg was more complicated than I ever speculated…
      And I recall another incident… Together with Rees-Mogg, the most savage press hound attacking Clinton was one Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, a Briton… [he] once called me, urgently demanding a meeting. I had never heard of him before, and so I asked Bill if he had ever heard of this fellow…. Bill answered, rather ominously, as I now look back, “His name is Ambrose Evans-Pritchard. And,” he said, “be very careful.””

  • Included here for a number of reasons:
    • TruePundit’s founder, the for the longest time anonymous Michael D. Moore (not the liberal), used to be a protege of shady “Agency”-tied U.S. Marshall Richard Callaghan, who later in life was president of the AFIO’s New Mexico chapter. Considering all former CIA directors and many deputy directors have been leading AFIO members, with the notorious Ted Shackley have played an important role as well in the AFIO, it should be immediately clear that TruePundit is not exactly “grassroots”.
    • Moore also is an ally of former FBI Counter-Intelligence Division unit chief and CIA liaison Robyn Gritz, who was worked out of the bureau in the 2013-2015 period, with her only public support being her long-time JSOC ally, Gen. Mike Flynn, the first national security advisor of Donald Trump. In November 2017 Moore and Gritz both appeared on a “Crowdsource the Truth” podcast to attack the FBI, this in the midst of the FBI-backed attack on Donald Trump in relation to claims of Russia collusion.
    • Now it starts to make sense why Flynn and Flynn, Jr. pushed TruePundits’ November 2, 2016 article that, apart from 4Chan, initiated the bogus Pizzagate affair. And why Blackwater’s Erik Prince of the Council for National Policy-tied DeVos-Prince family pushed very similar information to Breitbart on November 4. It should be clear that there is more to the TruePundit founder than meets the eye.
  • has many claims to “fame”, having been frequently featured in the mainstream media that tries to counter its claims:
    • TruePundit already received a tiny bit of notoriety with its September 2, 2016 article ‘NYPD: Hillary Clinton Was Wearing “Invisible” Earpiece To Receive Stealth Coaching During Live NBC TV Town Hall’ that was retweeted that same day by actor James Woods, who commented “She literally can’t help herself. She’s the kind of sociopath who will lie even if the truth were more beneficial.” The thing is, Hollywood actors are ultra-corrupt, with James Woods to be found among its tiny “conservative CIA” wing.
    • was the subject of an October 3, 2016 article of New York Magazine entitled ‘Explaining the Viral Rumor That Hillary Clinton Wanted to Drone-Strike Julian Assange’. In the process, it received a nice domain rank-generating link by New York Magazine. Checking the url on Feb. 21, 2019, the link doesn’t have any affixes excluding search engine link juice. Even then it would generate temporary domain rank boost for TruePundit over the increase in traffic it drives to the site.
    • Really became notorious for its November 2, 2016 article ‘BREAKING BOMBSHELL: NYPD Blows Whistle on New Hillary Emails: Money Laundering, Sex Crimes with Children, Child Exploitation, Pay to Play, Perjury’, the same day of the 4Chan post ‘PODESTA IS A FUCKING PEDO’ that initiated the bogus Pizzagate affair that helped undermine Hillary Clinton’s election campaign.
      The TruePundit article was retweeted by Trump’s incoming national security advisor General Mike Flynn, the former JSOC intelligence chief and ally of former CIA director James Woolsey in the neocon Act! for America outfit. On November 4 Flynn’s son also endorsed the article.
      Also on November 4, it was Erik Prince of the CIA-dominated mercenary firm Blackwater USA, also a member of the “conservative CIA” multi-billionaire DeVos-Prince family that has played a leading role in the Council for National Policy, who referred to the exact same “New York Police Department” sources and made the exact same allegations as those in the TruePundit article, in his case to fellow-conservative propaganda site (‘Erik Prince: NYPD Ready to Make Arrests in Anthony Weiner Case’).
      The specifics here are discussed in ISGP’s Pizzagate article under the heading A JSOC-Blackwater-CNP coup? General Mike Flynn, his son, and Erik Prince.
    • TruePundit again became notorious (although less) with its July 17, 2018 article ‘FBI: Lisa Page Dimes Out Top FBI Officials During Classified House Testimony; Bureau Bosses Covered Up Evidence China Hacked Hillary’s Top Secret Emails’. The story was shared over 22,000 by Trump-supporting social media trolls, prompting “liberal CIA”-backed fact-checking sites as found the story necessary to debunk again, in the process putting active links to relevant and (formerly article, only driving more traffic to these disinformation websites and aiding them in their domain rank. Again: a February 21, 2019 check of the urls shows that no affixes have been used to exclude link juice.
  • Fascinatingly, in September 2018 peaked around global Alexa rank of 20k, which would roughly give it a U.S. Alexa rank within 5,000. It steadily dropped after that to a U.S. rank of 11,170 by February 21, 2019. One wonders why Google just doesn’t downrank this site, similar to it has done with ISGP. Or why the media talks about TruePundit, but not ISGP.
  • Little information existed for the longest time about TruePundit’s creator. Only after some time it was found out that it was the creation of Twitter user @Thomas1774Paine (Mike ‘Thomas Paine’ Moore). This account started tweeting on July 4, 2015 with simple comments every few days to Trump and other politicians. He had zero likes or feedback until the spring of 2016. Thus, previously, this Michael D. Moore was nothing more than a basic Twitter troll.
  • As of February 21, 2019, Moore has 197,124 Twitter followers, but – “strangely” – has pretty much the same engagement in likes compared to June 2016 when he started the site, had about 16,000 Twitter followers, and wasn’t known – at all – yet. It looks as if he has fake followers for the most part – probably similar to tons of other troll accounts.
  • The creator has always tried to remain anonymous, but was partly exposed by Buzzfeed on August 27, 2018. Michael D. Moore immediately countered on his with a number of interesting revelations that have already been summarized earlier, most notably that he was groomed as a “dirt digger” by a CIA-tied U.S. Marshall and also worked under a former head of the FBI’s New York Office in digging dirt on rivals of billionaire Steve Wynn, including on Donald Trump at the time. On top of that, he is very close to Trump’s first Nationl Security Advisor – who helped his website with pushing Pizzagate-type disinformation on the Clintons – through FBI whistleblower Robyn Gritz, with whom he was running an anti-FBI operation ti help protect Trump in 2017 and 2018.

My Intel godfather was Dick Callaghan [president of New Mexico’s AFIO chapter] a north Jersey and New York legend who literally wrote the fugitive apprehension manual for the U.S. Marshals before he took on assorted, more complicated assignments for the Agency [CIA?] and other clandestine folks.

That was in the mid 1990s, long before Fusion GPS. Name a government agency and we worked for it, along with Fortune 100 companies. We could glean corporate Intel from under-used databases, nab public records, or get our hands dirty. …
      We ran an Intel arm for Steve Wynn’s Mirage out of Las Vegas. Wynn and Trump were embroiled in an epic legal battle. … These two magnates had a team of Intel and ex FBI, CIA on their payrolls digging dirt on one another.

      all these conspiracy theory require child sex rings these day. sexual deviance goes way back as a evidence that someones a wrong un. people can take or leave the political intrigue, its all very abstract. but tell them what the illuminati like to put their dicks in, and watch the self righteous rage explode. the templars where branded homosexual when they were dealt with. but gayness isn’t shocking anymore, but so child abuse is to go to indicator of evil for made up conspiracies. its not just their politics that dodgy, but they fundamentally evil, the slightest and spurious indication and there are child sex rings. unless you like them, then they could be caught balls deep in a toddler and everyones overreacting… … There is quite a bit that is wildly wrong (Bohemian Grove is listed as a “liberal NGO”, Comet Ping Pong is described as a “homosexual and heterosexual sex club of some sort at night”) not to pursue any further, particularly since this guy seems to have an obsession with racialism and sex (especially child sex). “

    Flight 77 most certainly impacted the Pentagon, but the apparent refusal of authorities to release videographic evidence of this, in addition to the release of a handful of bogus gifs that only fueld speculation, and one has to assume that Judicial Watch was the conduit of a psychological warfare program to keep the truth about 9/11 hidden.

      The Justice Department has handed over tapes showing American Airlines Flight 77 striking the building outside Washington to Judicial Watch, a public interest group that requested the video, the group said.
      The video is available on the group’s Web site, according to a news release from Judicial Watch.
      At least two tapes were released, from different security cameras. The two cameras, from the same Pentagon checkpoint, show the building from different angles. (Watch what the cameras caught as the plane slams into the Pentagon — 2:21)
      Previously released still photographs from those cameras show the Pentagon on fire, but no images of the Boeing 757 striking the building have ever been made public.
      The video released Tuesday was the source of those still photos.
      In one clip, a police car passes in front of the security camera before a ball of flame and smoke erupts from the Pentagon in the background.
      “We fought hard to obtain this video because we felt that it was very important to complete the public record with respect to the terrorist attacks of September 11,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Finally, we hope that this video will put to rest the conspiracy theories involving American Airlines Flight 77. As always, our prayers remain with all those who suffered as a result of those murderous attacks.” …
      Some conspiracy theorists have maintained the aircraft was shot down in flight, and that the Pentagon was struck by a missile.”
  • Director of Investigations & Research at Judicial Watch, Chris Farrell, even appeared on the Alex Jones Show over the Pentagon video.
    • May 18 2006, Chris Farrell, Alex Jones’ Prisonplanet, ‘Judicial Watch Says More Pentagon Tapes To Come Farrell admits entire issue potential intelligence honey pot operation’: “Appearing on the Alex Jones Show, Farrell conceded that his organization could be the water carriers for a honey pot operation, in which the government attracts overwhelming attention to the Pentagon issue, making it the cornerstone of the 9/11 truth movement, and then blowing it out of the water by releasing clear footage of Flight 77.
      “Let’s just call it a baited trap, it draws somebody into a situation in which they’re compromised,” said Farrell in describing the tactic of creating a honey pot. He agreed that we should expect to see clear footage of Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon released soon. …
      Many suspect Judicial Watch is being used as a conduit for the dissemination of carefully staged government propaganda. When the subject of Operation Northwoods was raised, Farrell became noticeably evasive and began to talk about government incompetence as if reading from a prepared script.”
  • In 2015 Judicial Watch made the news with regard to the DIA report that predecited the rise of ISIS. At the time, the DIA was headed by General Mike Flynn, who became Trump’s first national security advisor in 2016-2017.

So any video that goes on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, I have a hand in that. … Obama in 2012 I worked with, on the Obama Campaign in 2012. And then I worked on the Obama Campaign in 2008 doing social media. … So I have that background, so when Clinton in 2016, they needed someone to do, they needed a volunteer strategist to do video… well, they needed someone to help them do video, and how to make it heartfelt, for Clinton…
        Yeah. My voice is on every… My imprint is on every [NYT] video we do. So I like that. … [Sarcastic voice:] “I will be “objective.”” No, I’m not. That’s why I’m there. … Like, after the Clinton campaign, I’m like, “No! I need to get back into news and keep doing shit because, like, this isn’t going to change.” … I’d target his businesses, his dumb fuck of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric – so they’re running Trump, like, the Trump business. Target that. Get people to boycott going to his hotels. Boycott… So a lot of the Trump brands. If you can ruin the Trump brand and you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down – or they’re hacking or other things. He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. He would resign. Or he’d lash out and something incredibly illegal, which he would have to. … Oh, we always do [put that shit at the front]. …
        As a journalist, I’m not able to give any money to any political organization, I’m not able to volunteer for any political organization, I’m not able to work for any nonprofit or charity. … Oh, I have.

[Looks uncomfortable mentioning it]] That’s something even John Michael has no idea about. NO ONE at the Times has any idea about it. … Well, the Comey hearing, I should have recused myself, but I’m not ever telling anybody there I have a tie with that [him, Comey], or else I don’t know if they can keep me on. … No, [me and Comey] haven’t talked in five, six months. [“But you said you saw him on Father’s Day.”] June, three months. August [it’s now], two months. No,m I saw him in June. … I’m kinda pissed at him. I think he’s kind of a cunt with the book deal. Like, are you fucking kidding me? … Because he can’t say anything more. Everything else is classified. So, it’s just a money grab… He is a holier-than-thou fucking cunt and he gets a book deal just for money. Like, fuck him. … But I can’t talk to him [points to NYT offices right upstairs].
        Yeah, I used to be an antifa punk once upon a time. I used to go after Nazi punks. I have punched Neo-Nazis, many of them. Actually, that [scar on my hand] is from a Neo-Nazi tooth. Living in Northeast Florida, pretty much in southern Georgia. Lot of Neo-Nazis and a lot of KKK people. [“Does Comey know you are doing that stuff”] I cannot confirm or deny that question. Because there’s a follow up question to that question that I don’t want you to ask. [“Which is”] Did the FBI ask me to do that stuff? … I joined that stuff for them. I was an asset. Yeah. So it was intelligence gathering, seeing if they were, what their agenda was, whether they’re a threat or not. Some, yeah [were a threat?]. Domestic terrorism. …
        [Nick’s father:] [“Was he in the FBI?”] Not to the best of my knowledge. [“He told me he was James Comey’s godson. Is that…”] Not to the best of my knowledge.

Like, everybody got screwed over. So we’re rapidly been like, “What happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again?” The reason we launched our A.I. principles is because people were not putting that line in the sand. They were not saying what’s fair and what’s equitable. So we’re like, well, we are a big company, we’re going to say it. My definition of fairness and bias specifically talks about historically marginalized communities [i.e. blacks, Arabs, Latinos, Native Indian, etc.]. And that’s who I care about. Communities who are in power and have traditionally been in power [i.e., whites] are not who I’m solving fairness for. Our definition of fairness is one of those things that we thought would be like, obvious, and everyone would agree to – and it wasn’t. There was, the same people who voted for the current president [i.e., predominantly whites] who do not agree with our definition of fairness. … We have gotten accusations on around fairness is that we’re unfair to conservatives because we’re choosing what we define as credible news sources. And those sources don’t necessarily overlap with conservative sources so we’re getting accusations of fair [unfairness] from one side. …
        We got called in front of Congress multiple times, and we’ve not shown up because we know that they’re just going to just attack us. We’re not going to change our [business – inaudible]. We’re not going to change our minds. There’s no point in just sitting there being attacked over something we know we’re not going to change. Like, they can pressure us, but we are not changing. But we also have to be aware of what they’re doing and what they’re accusing us of. Like I said, they can just [break us up?] Elizabeth Warren even, I love her but she’s also saying you’ve got to break up Google and that will solve everything. Like, that will not make it better. It will make it worse. Because now all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation. It’s like, a small company cannot do that. … The White House and Congress won’t play a role in making things more fair so people are holding us accountable to fill the gap of what should be done. … 2020, certainly on top of my old organization, Trust and Safety, top of mind, they’ve been working on it since 2016, to make sure we’re ready for 2020. … We’re also training our algorithms if 2016 happened again, would we have, would the outcome be different?
        [Revealing of an internal Google document:] If a representation is factually accurate, can it still be algorithmic unfairness? For example, imagine that a Google image query for “CEOs” shows predominantly men. Even if it were a factually accurate representation of the world, it would be algorithmic unfairness because it would reinforce a stereotype about the role of women in leadership positions. … “Algorithmic unfairness” means unjust or prejudicial treatment of people that is related to sensitive characteristics such as race, income, sexual orientation, or gender, through algorithmic systems or algorithmically aided decision-making. …
        [Gaurev Gite, Google software engineer, confirms:] But then there are things which are called ML fairness… So they’re trying to modify the model such that even if the data for female CEOs is low, it still balances out.”
        [Revealing of an internal Google document:] “In some cases it may be appropriate to take no action if the system accurately affects current reality, while in other cases it may be desirable to consider how we might help society reach a more and equitable state via product intervention [i.e., change the algorithm to reach a political goal].”

  • Right-wing, alpha male-pusher (but in a really insecure, pathetic way), anti-feminism (Hollywood and the like), pro-Trump activist, who rapidly rose to fame during the Trump years – due to support from Trump circles and endless criticism from the mainstream media, particularly after Pizzagate.
  • Among the few who pushed the Pizzagate disinformation in November 2016.
    • November 3, 2016 tweet of @Cernovich: “”I think it has a map that seems pizza-related.” This is code. I know this from representing drug dealers.”
  • Cernovich’s opinions already were featured before, but after his Pizzagate support and the Trump election, he more intimately became part of the Infowars machine. In May 2017 he even was invited to become a co-host of the CIA-tied Alex Jones conspiracy disinformation guru at This was only short-lived though. On air Cernovich came off as a rather nervous employee of Alex Jones.

      Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, recently tweeted out a link to Cernovich’s Medium page. Donald Trump Jr. said he deserved the Pulitzer Prize.”
  • Cernovich has a bizarre history. His first wife from 2003-2011 was a fellow-Pepperdine law student who turns out to have been a very early Facebook Intellectual Property (IP) lawyer who got wealthy with Facebook stock. Even after hours of research on February 22, 2019, her name is still unknown to ISGP. It was leaked in mid December 2015, but it looks as if every single reference to her in relation to Cernovich has been purged from social media and all search engines. The clues:
    • July 11, 2014, Mike Cernovich for his (defunct) site, ’31 Random Facts About Mike’: “24. I have been a guest at Sheryl Sandberg’s house and ate dinner with Mark Zuckerberg. Sheryl Sandberg [hired by Zuckerberg in March 2008; protege of top superclass member Larry Summers; regular Sun Valley visitor; Giving Pledge member with David Rockefeller, Warren Buffett, Ted Turner, etc.; Clinton Global Initiavive ’13] overtly flirted with me and Mark Zuckerberg and his flunkie (forget his name – Chris Cox? [CPO of Facebook and chief of staff to Zuckerberg]) were insecure around me. That’s when I learned that money can’t buy what I have. …
      I’ve been acknowledged in several different scholarly works. I worked as a research assistant for one of the biggest names in constitutional law. …
      I have had a seven figure payday [from my ex-wife]. I never have to work another day in my life, as the interest/capital gains and trivial amount of money I bring in from Danger & Play funds my humble lifestyle.”
    • Mid December 2015 it appears, tweets of @Cernovich (all removed, also of SJWs he mentions): “I respect my ex too much to dox her. But Randi Harper, Graham Linehan, etc. are sharing it. … Still LOL’ing that SJWs doxed my ex-wife, a woman of color who works in tech. (No troll, she’s big time…) … SJWs flipped when they found out who my ex-wife is, as she’s attractive, successful, and rich. “How did Cernovich get that!?””
    • October 13, 2016, 01:56, Post No.92669669, 4Chan: “married a fellow Pepperdine grad who worked at facebook as a patent lawyer…”
    • June 3, 2017, 7:04:48 GMT, Reddit post by “MalReynolds1”: “she became Facebook’s first IP lawyer.”
    • November 20, 2017 tweet of Graham Linehan (@Glinner): “Mike Cernovich. Not only still on Twitter, not only verified, but actually followed by Twitter’s CEO.”
  • Facebook has been described by ISGP as a virtual CIA front for a number of reasons, not the least of which initial investor and long-time director Peter Thiel: a conservative, Trump-supporting libertarian leader of the old “PayPal Mafia” who managed to get a seat on Bilderberg’s steering committee, alongside Alex Karp, with whom he founded datamining firm Palantir, a recipient of CIA funding through In-Q-Tel. Thiel, not Cernovich, are the only cookie-cut conservatives tied to Facebook. There’s Peter Thiel – a Bilderberg steering committee member – and there’s also Palmer Freeman Luckey, the founder of the Oculus Rift, which was bought by Facebook for $3 billion. Mind you, Luckey went into the defense industry with Anduril Industries, with Thiel also involved here.
    • September 27, 2016, USA Today, ‘Facebook millionaire Luckey aligns himself with alt-right, but only if you squint’: “On September 12, Luckey liked a tweet by Mike Cernovich … that criticized Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for speaking at a gender-segregated mosque. …
      The quality of Oculus Rift aside, a number of VR programmers have responded to Luckey’s conservative donation by announcing that they would stop developing for Facebook’s VR device.”
  • After the divorce from his Facebook wife in 2011, who apparently was black, he remarried with Shauna Ghofranian, a Muslim Iranian woman. From his ex-wife Cernovich was able to receive a “7 figure” sum from her Facebook stock, according to him, making it possible to do whatever he wants. He launched in 2011 ( are basic, free domains), his first post dating to March 11, 2011. Finally, in late 2012, the url was switched to a real one: Byline: “An online magazine for alpha males”.
    • March 11, 2011, ‘”Hall Pass”: Betas in Hollywood’: “Hollywood’s latest assault on men and masculinity…”
    • July 12, 2011, ‘Diversity is Racist’ (after a four month break): “Take Roosh’s [] latest post on why dating in D.C. sucks. … “There aren’t enough cute white girls for white men who don’t want to date minorities.” … Roosh, again, is not white. He’s Persian. He no doubt faces racial discrimination. Yet the Reddit geeks have taken to calling him racist… I would not dislike D.C.’s shortage of white women, as I myself am a racist. I really don’t care for white people. They are generally conformist and boring. … I just don’t like wasting money, which is the white woman’s obsession.”
    • October 31, 2011, ‘The Game Starts in Your Bedroom Mirror’: “Other than fornicating with beautiful women, I enjoy fighting. … I can tell, just by looking at guy, whether he will be a good fight. … Cauliflower ears mean everything. If the guy has a thick neck and deformed ears, he’ll want to pick you up and slam you on the cement. …
      Girls will invite me to talk to them. Guys talk about their close rates being in the 5-10% range. Mine is at least 25%. If I approach four girls, I’ll bang one of them.”
    • November 28, 2011, ‘Self-Defense for Players’ (there’s no indication Cernovich had any significant boxing or MMA training, or a 100+ fight record): “I’ve been in well over 100 fights, boxed in a ring, and fought MMA. I’ve had my nose broken twice… After getting my nose broken in a Combat Sambo match, I went to a Turkish bath house is [sic] a shitty New Jersey neighborhood. After we ran out of vodka, I walked through the ghetto for another bottle. The Russian mob boss wanted me to move out East to work for him. …
      When I boxed at 163 pounds, more guys were willing to fight me than when I bulked up to 240 pounds [Cernovich is known to be on TRT, a.k.a. steroids]. I was quicker, more agile, and … lighter self would have fucked my heavier self up [Note: this make no sense, unless it was all fat – maybe]. … Put on 20 pounds of muscle, and you’ll find that most men have no interest in starting a fight with you.”
  • At least one or two conspiracy tweets of Cernovich were not bad:
    • September 1, 2016: “The Saudis did it, with help from the Bush family. … Bush let Saudis leave when airport on lock. 9/11 commission withheld proof of Saudi ties. Read before addressing me.” Not sure to which (suspended) Twitter naccount he linked here. (formerly

  • Conference-organizing think tank founded by author and whistleblower John Loftus that was filled with hard-right CIA, Mossad, FBI, Joint Intelligence Committee (UK), special forces, and psychological warfare veterans from the United States, Britain and Israel.
    • “John J. Loftus President, The Intelligence Summit”.
    • (accessed: November 30, 2005): “Former Intelligence Officer & Federal Prosecutor John Loftus and his army of volunteers that made Intelcon’s program such a success will be joining with the key staff from the counter terrorism conference to take the Intelligence Summits to the next level.”
  • First things first. The reason the Intelligence Summit has been added (as well) to the conspiracy disinformation section of this “conservative CIA” oversight is for the following reasons:
    • The name “John Loftus” might be familiar to many readers of ISGP. He is considered a whistleblower, who in 2005 was featured in many conspiracy outlets in relation to the London Subway Bombings:
      • September 10, 2005, Michael Meacher (Tony Blair’s environmental minister in the 1997-2003 period – who turned bogus 9/11 “truther)) for The Guardian, ‘Britain now faces its own blowback’: “During an interview on Fox TV this summer, the former US federal prosecutor John Loftus reported that British intelligence had used the al-Muhajiroun group in London to recruit Islamist militants with British passports for the war against the Serbs in Kosovo. Since July Scotland Yard has been interested in an alleged member of al-Muhajiroun, Haroon Rashid Aswat, who some sources have suggested could have been behind the London bombings.
        According to Loftus, Aswat was detained in Pakistan after leaving Britain, but was released after 24 hours. He was subsequently returned to Britain from Zambia, but has been detained solely for extradition to the US, not for questioning about the London bombings. Loftus claimed that Aswat is a British-backed double agent, pursued by the police but protected by MI6.”
    • In his book The Secret War Against the Jews (1994) – popular in conspiracy circles – Loftus claims that Mossad founder Reuven Shiloah and other leading Jews blackmailed Nelson Rockefeller in using his political influence to help establish the state of Israel in 1948.
      Some may have thought that Loftus extremely pro-Israel and anti-Arab bias in the book is a bit suspect. They are right. So much is demontrated by his founding of the Intelligence Summit.
    • Loftus was invited to conspiracy disinformation show Coast to Coast AM (all its guests are conspiracy disinformers) on August 18, 2005 and on November 17, 2012. Loftus is generally praised for his work on exposing Wall Street bankers working with the fascist regimes before the break out of World War II. While accurate, Loftus is tied to the highest levels of Israeli and Zionist political and intelligence circles.
    • Bizarrely, in July 2013, the website of the Intelligence Summit, after having a normal one since 2005, suddenly transformed from a very serious private think tank website into a simplistic but ultra-extreme conspiracy outlet. Many articles equated the pope with Satan – and that’s just where it started.
  • Members of the executive and advisory board have included:
    • (accessed: November 30, 2005): “Our International Advisory Council consists of some of the best minds of our time:

  • The Intelligence Summit actually received financing from a certain Michael Cherney, a controversial Russian mafia and Mossad-tied Jewish Russian oligarch. When this information came out in early 2006, former CIA directors James Woolsey and John Deutch departed from the Intelligence Summit’s board, (unrealistically) claiming ignorance about the Cherney tie.
    • February 16, 2006, New York Sun, ‘Furor Erupts Over Recordings of Saddam’: “Two former CIA directors have resigned from the board of the organization planning tomorrow to make public secret recordings of Saddam Hussein and his advisers. In the last week both [CIA directors] John Deutch and James Woolsey abruptly left their positions at Intelligence Summit, according to its president, John Loftus, who said their departure is part of a campaign by the directorate of national intelligence to punish him for releasing the recordings. The reason both men gave for their resignations was new information they received regarding one of the summit’s biggest donors, Michael Cherney, an Israeli citizen who has been denied a visa to enter America because of his alleged ties to the Russian mafia.”
    • ISGP’s The Supranational Suspects Behind 9/11 article, in note 430, lists written out sources from the late 1990s and on to illustrate numerous ties of Michael Cherney to organized crime, primarily the powerful and pro-Zionist Solntsevskaya mafia. Associates included top mafia bosses Semion Mogilevich, Vadim Rabinovich, Gafur Rakhimov, Tofik Arifova and Taiwanchik. He is also close to Oleg Deripaska, a pirmary Rothschild
    • August 29, 1999, Ha’aretz, ‘Top News: Jews and Israelis in Global Money-Laundering Scheme’: “Several Jews, including some with Israeli citizenship, have been questioned in connection with a worldwide probe into an alleged money-laundering operation. In what may be the biggest such case in history, investigators are trying to find out whether Russian mobsters funneled billions of dollars through accounts at the Bank of New York. …
      The Swiss are also investigating the financial dealings of two companies associated with the Russian national carrier, Aeroflot – Andava and Forus Services. The Swiss suspect the companies used the airline to transfer money to private bank accounts abroad.
      This month, the accounts in Switzerland of Boris Berezovsky, a Russian businessman who in the early 1990s obtained Israeli citizenship but apparently gave it up about two years ago in order to take a government position in Russia. Among those said to have profited from the bank accounts and the bribes from Mabetex are President Boris Yeltsin, his wife Naina, their daughters Tatyana and Yelena, and Yelena’s husband, Valery Okulov, the managing director of Aeroflot. …
      The name of Israeli-born businessman Bruce Rappaport, the founder of Geneva’s Inter Maritime Bank, has been mentioned in connection with the transfer of funds via offshore accounts in banks in Antigua. Rappaport is Antigua’s ambassador to Russia.
      Also named in the scandal are Alexander Krasnenker, Roman Abramovich and the Runikon company, which is jointly owned by Abramovich and three companies owned by the Lev brothers and Michael Chernoi [Michael Cherney] – Israeli citizens with dealings with the Bank of New York.”


  • Real-life horror website founded in 2000. In 2006 it started redirecting to its tamer incarnation,, in 2006. Hayden Hewitt, an extreme right-winger who later appeared on Infowars, was involved in and is the only public face of

  • Real-life horror and shock news website launched from Great Britain in 2006 that served as the successor to the notorious, of which it was a tamed-down version.
    • Similar to Ogrish, LiveLeak received a lot of attention by posting an endless stream of Jihadi execution and terrorist attack videos, as well as related Iraq War footage. The site got its first big international controversy by putting out the anti-Islam film Fitna (2008) of Dutch neocon Geert Wilders.
    • November 7, 2014,, ‘Q&A: The Man Behind LiveLeak, The Islamic State’s Favourite Site For Beheading Videos’: “Forty-one-year-old Hayden Hewitt is the only public member of LiveLeak’s founding team. … “[Hewitt:] We’d gone as far as we could go with [Ogrish]…” … LiveLeak [has] seen itself mentioned by Prime Minister Tony Blair and White House Press Secretary Tony Snow. …
      In 2008, Dutch politician Geert Wilders created a short documentary named Fitna that was highly critical of Islam. After attempting to hire extra security to screen it in Holland and then having his website suspended, Wilders turned to LiveLeak and requested that they host the controversial film. … But thing were about to get crazier [after half of Holland logged in]. LiveLeak was forced to take the video offline after Hewitt became the target of death threats. … “We get a lot of threats in general, but these were becoming very, very specific [because] Certain outlets were reporting my full name…
      “It is an independent outfit, everybody works, everybody has other jobs. There are no full time LiveLeak employees.””
  • It should serve as yet another “whistleblower”-supporting website, just by looking at its name, but this is questionable. Hayden Hewitt and LiveLeak overall are major supporters of the CIA, CNP and Army special forces-tied Alex Jones, to the point that Hewitt even appeared on Infowars in 2015. The relationship is not all perfect between Jones and Liveleak, but it should be clear that politically Liveleak is an “alt-right” site – despite often trying to take the middle ground. The site is also riddled with 9/11 “Truth” videos.
    • June 4, 2015 Infowars, Hayden Hewitt interview: “[JONES:] LiveLeak reached out to us a few years ago for our Bilderberg coverage and said, “We’ll give you the streams you need.” … What I like is they haven’t censored us. …
      [HEWITT:] You produce other shows and such. Let’s face it, you are kinda battling the New World Order, aren’t you? … In our own little way.””

  • Fascinatingly, as of March 2019, despite steadily dropping, Liveleak still has a U.S. rank of 723 – which is giant – yet new political posts are only clicked 350 or so in the first hour – which is extremely low. Clearly most traffic is coming in through Google and focused on death videos; not on any political content.

  • Real-life horror website founded in 2008. It shows real videos of murders, tortures, suicides.
  • U.S. Alexa rank of 4,136 as of March 18, 2019.
  • Visitors of the otherwise very useful site (it’s always good to be able to see how terrible violence is without first carrying it out) may notice that the comment sections are completely riddled with extremely racist posters – not just aimed at “coons” and “niggers” and “wetbacks”, but Jews as well. Nicknames as “FuckAmericaFuckIsraelFuckIngorance” (profile picture of Bashar al-Assad) and “ProtocolsOfZion” and German-sounding names riddle the comment sections. Turns out, the biggest hardcore gore website in existence, is yet another conspiracy Nazi website. It actually has a “Holohoax” index as one of its main categories visible throughout the site:
    • (accessed: March 18, 2019): “‘Introduction to the Gas Chambers Myth’ … ‘Delousing Chambers – German Plan to Save the Lives of Jews and Gentiles’ … ‘Pathological Lies of Holocaust Survivors’ … ‘German Heroine Ursula Haverbeck Destroys Holohoax on Mainstream TV, Gets Harassed’ …
      Did you know that the concept of “The Final Solution” of extermination so vehemently forced into our minds by the Jewish propagandists was not proposed by a German Nazi, but rather by a Jew? …
      World War II ended in exactly the same way it started – with [Soviet] Jews mass murdering and gang raping German women and children [true if it said “Soviet soldiers” instead of “Jews”: 20 million (gang) rapes of 2 million German women and children down to age of 7/8 seems entirely possible – if not likely]. … [Apparent fake quote of the Jew:] Ilya Ehrenburg”
  • Similar to Hayden Hewitt of LiveLeak, Mark Marek is pretending to be a “freedom fighter”. Some of the things he says are great – if only he did not so prominently deny the “Holocaust”.
    • October 24, 2013,, ‘The Verge Interview with Mark Marek’: “[Bestgore is] now read by 10 Million people a month. … As aware individuals, we don’t engage in herd mentality… [Bestgore] however doesn’t bode well with the powers that be. They want the populace to be the sheep, for the sheep are predictable and easy to manipulate. … Because evil doers have a very solid understanding of how herd mentality works, they are able to successfully abuse it to turn the public perception in their favor. … On the pages of Best Gore, evil doers of all levels, including unconstitutional governments, abusive, power tripping policemen, bankers, corporations and international lobbying groups who corrupt politicians to enslave people in injustice are exposed. …I have become too inconvenient, if not downright dangerous to their evil games so the need arose to shut me down [over the] 1 Lunatic 1 Icepick [murder] video…”

We are as strong as we are united and as week as we are divided. If we continue having each other’s back, none of the powerful nor their army of loud mouthed sheep stand a chance. Power to The Aware!”
  • The site is very degenerate in its descriptions of videos:
    • December 1, 2017,, ‘Interview With Mark Marek, Owner of’: “I have never click baited anyone with over-exaggerated titles, but also never downplayed the severity of the content within. Turns out, people appreciate this no BS approach…”

Ironically, both are not born wreckless. The baby doesn’t take the road less traveled and dies with mommy and daddy. Doctors say abortions do sometimes save women’s lives but in this freak accident that is not the case.”
    • March 17, 2019, regular poster “Seraphim Serenata” on Bestgore, ‘Woman Leg fucked in [Motorcycle] Accident, Child Gets Boo Boo.’
  • Typical conspiracy disinformation is occasionally pushed by the site:
    • (accessed: August 7, 2020; of course insituates that Israel is behind the attack to take out Hezbollah missiles).
  • Some of the forum posters are even more manipulative with their conspiracy mongering than site founder Mark Marek:
    • December 21, 2018, comments by “FuckAmericaFuckIsraelFuckIngorance” (profile picture of Bashar al-Assad) (screenshot): “You are the most sane fella here! These comments are always littered with familiar faces shilling, always deferring information into a degraded race bait or the Idiocracy of trying to discern between two controlled opposition “left” “right” trapping people in their own insecure beta syndrome, rather than recognizing reality for what it is, We have juden run governments turning gentile against gentile fooling us into murdering each other, never progressing, never seeing out true enemy! “Divide and conquer”. … Lynch these juden in the streets for the millions they’ve murdered…
      “I suggest you go and read up on the jew, starting with the “Blood Libel”, Rothschild / Rockefeller, george soros / 9/11 false flag…”
  • No media outlets appear to be concerned with BestGore’s holocaust denial.

Alliance for a Sustainable USA

  • Anti-Muslin neocon NGO founded in 2002 by Brigitte Gabriel. Very much focused pro-Judea-Christianity and into on pushing hate of Islam, similar to Jihad Watch of Act! for America board member Robert Spencer. A few headlines from the website in 2007: “Sign Our Petition: Stop Islamic totalitarianism” and “Christian Perscution in the Middle East”.
    • (accessed: August 23, 2008): “ACT! for America was founded by Brigitte Gabriel, a Lebanese immigrant who came to the United States after losing her country of birth to militant Muslim fundamentalists during the Lebanese Civil War. …
      Muted by intimidation, as evidenced by the increasing use of slurs such as “Islamophobe” by Muslim apologists against anyone who dares to speak the truth about Islamic radicalism, terror and jihad.”
  • Among the long-time board members have been former CIA director and top neocon superclass member James Woolsey – who is far from the only CIA or Mossad-tied individual to be found here. Other members have been deeply involved in the CIA and Mossad-tied Intelligence Summit, a bizarre, high-level outfit that turned its site into nothing but extreme conspiracy disinformation-pushing.
    • (accessed: March 13, 2008): “Our Board of Advisors: R. James Woolsey … Major General Paul Vallely US Army, (Ret.) … Dr. Walid Phares … Dr. Harvey Kushner … Michael Cutler … Kenneth Timmerman … Robert Spencer: Director of Jihad Watch [also Intelligence Summit]… John Loftus: … President of the Intelligence Summit [and] Vice Chairman of the Florida Holocaust Museum … Robert Katz: … the executive director of the Intelligence Summit.

    • This group became secretive in late 2007 when its new website stopped publishing board members.
  • General Mike Flynn, joined the advisory board of Act! for America in June 2016, months before he became Donald Trump’s initial National Security Advisor and started pushing a little Pizzagate conspiracy disinformation through the CIA- and AFIO-tied
    • June 28, 2016, (Ford Foundation-financed pro-immigration Center for a New Community), ‘Trump adviser joins ACT for America’s board’: “”As many of you know, Lieutenant General (Ret.) Michael T. Flynn is a friend of ACT for America and serves in an advisory capacity on our Board of Directors,” reads a June 22 email from the group. The email noted that ACT for America is “honored” to have Flynn working with them on a “day-to-day” basis. …
      Flynn, who retired from military service in 2014, has been unofficially advising Trump on foreign policy matters during his presidential run. …
      Flynn’s adviser role is only his newest way of supporting ACT for America. In a February 29 tweet, Flynn praised ACT’s founder and president Brigitte Gabriel, a notorious anti-Muslim demagogue. A day earlier, Gabriel was photographed with Trump at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. Gabriel was apparently at the estate to give a “national security briefing.”
      The former Lt. Gen. is also scheduled to speak at ACT’s national conference and legislative briefing in September. He is similarly set to make an appearance in Broadview Heights, Ohio on July 15 to speak at an event sponsored by the Cleveland ACT chapter.
      According to The Daily Beast, Flynn also advised Sen. Ted Cruz during his presidential run. While running for office, Cruz appointed various anti-Muslim figures for his foreign policy advisory team.”

  • (accessed: February 20, 2019): “a Philadelphia-based think tank, founded in 1994 by Daniel Pipes, promotes American interests in the Middle East and protects Western values from Middle Eastern threats.
    In the Middle East, we focus on ways to defeat radical Islam; work for Palestinian acceptance of Israel; develop strategies to contain Iran; and deal with advancing anarchy. Domestically, the Forum emphasizes the danger of lawful Islamism; protects the freedoms of anti-Islamist authors, and activists; and works to improve Middle East studies.”

Stop Islamization of America

  • Supposedly a pro-Islam lobby – founded in 2008 – that combats Muslim extremism. However, the foundation has a rather schizophrenic approach in that it is rather pro-neocon, pro-Israel and pro-spying on alleged Muslim extremists in the West, but at the same time critical of Dutch neocon Geert Wilders. It is also named after a 19th-century British convert to Islam who founded Britain’s first mosque and called for a global Caliphate. Claims it works on a “West friendly” version of Islam.
  • Would ordinarily receive liberal establishment backing, because it criticizes anti-Islam conservative leaders as Geert Wilders. However, in reality is receives a degree of neocon backing. Financiers:

Liberty Lobby

  • Group set up in 1968 by Liberty Lobby founder Willis Carto as Youth for Wallace, to support the presidential campaign of George Wallace. When Wallace lost in the elections, Carto and the Nazi William Luther Pierce, who aided in the founding of Youth for Wallace, renamed the group National Youth Alliance.
  • By 1970, Pierce and a number of followers had taken over the National Youth Alliance from Carto and renamed it the National Alliance, with Pierce becoming its head until his death in 2002. Throughout this time, the National Alliance, in no small part due to Pierce 1978 novel The Turner Diaries, served as the premier white supremacy and Nazi body in the United States.
  • Botch the Liberty Lobby and William Luther Pierce can labeled controlled opposition for a number of reasons. In the end, the National Alliance and the Nazi’s only purpose seems to be to discredit any scientific facts regarding race by irrationally singling out the Jews and by calling for extreme measures and extreme “purity” of race. Below, the first section involves mainly good science and thinking, with the second revealing the extreme, Nazi-esque solutions being suggested:
    • (accessed: December 22, 1996): “In the simplest words: There is only one reality, which we call Nature: not the “my reality” and “your reality” of the subjectivists and not the separate spiritual and physical realms of the supernaturalists. We are a part of Nature and subject to Nature’s laws. Within the scope of these laws we are able to determine our own destiny. If we err in our efforts there is no one to protect us from the consequences of our folly or our weakness. …
      Those races which evolved in the more demanding environment of the North, where surviving a winter required planning and self-discipline, advanced more rapidly in the development of the higher mental faculties-including the abilities to conceptualize, to solve problems, to plan for the future, and to postpone gratification-than those which remained in the relatively unvarying climate of the tropics. Consequently, the races vary today in their capabilities to build and to sustain a civilized society and, more generally, in their abilities to lend a conscious hand to Nature in the task of evolution. …
      First, we have an obligation to the Nature of which we are a part to participate as effectively as we can in its eternal quest for higher levels of development, higher forms of life. … Friedrich Nietzsche told us that our first responsibility is to help prepare the world for the coming of a higher type of man. George Bernard Shaw wrote that we are obliged to serve the Life Force in its striving to know itself more fully: i.e., to achieve higher levels of consciousness. Second, we have an obligation to our race as a collective agent of progress…”
    • (accessed: December 22, 1996): “All of Europe and the temperate zones of the Americas, not to mention Australia and the southern tip of Africa. This was our living area and our breeding area, and it must be so again. After the sickness of “multiculturalism,” which is destroying America, Britain, and every other Aryan nation in which it is being promoted, has been swept away, we must again have a racially clean area of the earth for the further development of our people. We must have White schools, White residential neighborhoods and recreation areas, White workplaces, White farms and countryside. We must have no non-Whites in our living space, and we must have open space around us for expansion.
      We will do whatever is necessary to achieve this White living space and to keep it White. We will not be deterred by the difficulty or temporary unpleasantness involved, because we realize that it is absolutely necessary for our racial survival. The long-term demographic trend toward a darker world which the disastrous policies of the last century have caused must not only be halted; it must be reversed. …
      What we must have [primarily] is a thorough rooting out of Semitic [Jews] and other non-Aryan values and customs everywhere. … This means a society in which young men and women gather to revel with polkas or waltzes, reels or jigs, or any other White dances, but never to undulate or jerk to negroid jazz or rock rhythms [since when is rock black music?]. It means pop music without Barry Manilow and art galleries without Marc Chagall. It means films in which the appearance of any non-White face on the screen is a sure sign [of] the bad, old days. It means neighborhoods, schools, work groups, and universities in which there is a feeling of family and comradeship, of a shared heritage and a shared destiny.”

  • The Turner Diaries is a book that was published in 1978 by leading American Nazi William Luther Pierce, head of the National Alliance.
  • The book became the Bible of the white nationalist / Nazi-aspect of America’s ultra-right militia movement. Essentially, members of this movement are either influenced by anti-“New World Order” disinformation coming from the John Birch Society or – in case of the Nazi element – the Liberty Lobby and its publications as American Free Press and The Spotlight that see “New World Order” as code for “Jews”. See Oklahoma City Bomber Timothy McVeigh, for example, who sold copies of The Turner Diaries.
  • Contents of the book:

Anti-Globalization Action Network (AGAN)

  • Founded as a secret society in 2001 by William Regnery II as an initial effort to bring back a conservative movement that would be anti-Jewish and almost fully anti-immigration (thus not neocon). It spawned the more public National Policy Institute in 2005.
    • July 23, 2017, Buzzfeed, ‘The Moneyman Behind the Alt-Right’: The first was the secretive Charles Martel Society, named for a leading figure of the European Middle Ages who fought off Muslim invaders. That organization helped create the second: the innocuously named National Policy Institute, which became a nerve center of the alt-right. …
      “People affiliated with the Charles Martel Society instantly clam up about it when asked. Taylor initially said, “I don’t know about the Charles Martel Society.” Later, when reminded that he is listed on the organization’s paperwork as a founding member, he said, “My association with it is so old I don’t think I can talk about it.”
      Richard Spencer, asked about it over lunch, abruptly changed the subject: “Excellent meal,” he exclaimed.
      “It’s a secret society,” explained Kevin MacDonald, the only member who would discuss it. Only the board is public, as required by law, he said. … The Charles Martel Society members, he said, are bound by nondisclosure agreements: “You have to sign a paper saying you will not divulge any information. If you did it, you’d be thwarted by a lawsuit.” … Taylor, he said, is an outlier at the Society meetings because he believes Jews are white and should be accepted. …
      Regnery himself insists that the Charles Martel Society is not actually secret but “private” and “confidential.””

National Policy Institute (NPI)

  • Premier Nazi-inspired conspiracy disinformation website – anything from 9/11-no-plane theories and chemtrails to Holocaust denial and Pizzagate – on the internet, founded in 2000 by Jeff Rense. The site only switched to (somewhat hidden) Naziism in the wake of 9/11.
  • Make no mistake, is a Nazi site. Celebrating the birthday of Hitler should be enough of a giveaway:
    • January 16, 2015,, ‘The Hidden Adolf Hitler’ ( (shows adorable pictures of Hitler with children and animals).
    • April 19, 2015,, ‘Born April 20, 1889: Happy Birthday!’ ( “You [Hitler] removed Jews and their zionist agendas from positions of power in banking, media and politics… You cleaned up Berlin, infested with zionist criminals… You were loved… Happy Birthday, Adolf Hitler!”
  • Rense’s support for Naziism largely led to the break with Alex Jones in March 2009. Jones remains an incarnation of the John Birch Society while Rense is one of the Liberty Lobby. The difference is blaming the “communist New World Order” of everything versus blames “the Jews” or “the Zionists”.
  • Jeff Rense’s father, Arthur, worked as a public relations manager for the Laurance Rockefeller-tied Douglas Aircraft Corporation and later for hotels owned by the CIA-tied Summa Corporation.
  • More information and sources on Jeff Rense and his website and radio show in ISGP’s no-planer biography of Jeff Rense.

  • Leading Nazi forum founded in 1996, which started out as an online bulletin board system in the early 1990s. Its founder is former Ku Klux Klan leader and white supremacist Don Black.
  • Basic claims as “anti-racist is a code word for anti-white” are true, but only if you look at “liberal CIA” and especially the “liberal CIA” backed network of communist, anarchist and black activist “antifa” protestors. Obviously, Nazis visibly making claims like this is to make them impossible to express for ordinary citizens without automatically being associated with “the Nazis”.
  • Going through forum threads on Stormfront about Third World immigration (about the only time Stormfront shows up prominently in Google), there tend to be a number of ordinary, rational posters – but, of course, they are overshadowed by hardcore and extremely irrational Jew-hating Nazis.
  • While all conspiracy and Nazi forums are riddled with national security trolls, this type of link is particularly easy to make with Stormfront because its radio show is hosted by Nazi conspiracy disinformation site
    • December 30, 2012,, ‘White nationalist radio program going off the air?’: “Don Black, the founder of Stormfront, the oldest and largest white nationalist forum, is apparently trying to figure out what to do with his and his son Dereks radio show, “The Derek Black Show.” …
      According to Black, longtime conspiracist and broadcaster Jeff Rense has offered his network to Black, which is “less expensive,” Black says, and provides a separate server for smartphones. The Rense network also harbors David Dukes radio show. …
      Recently, there have been questions about Dereks commitment to the racist views of his father. In response to student concerns at the college he attends, Derek posted in an online student forum that he is not a white supremacist, supports gay marriage and is pro-choice. … But he also claimed that he still thinks multiculturalism is harmful to whites and that he still believes in white nationalism.”

  • / is a Nazi news website founded in mid 2013 by Andrew “Andy” Anglin, who has an antifa and particularly huge conspiracy disinformation history. Named after the Nazi Party’s tabloid newspaper Der Sturmer, whose owner was executed after World War II.
  • Predictably, his site and his father have been under attack by antifa social justice warriors. Anglin also as many, many articles written about him in the mainstream and “liberal CIA” media. Anglin’s Wikipedia is extremely extensive, especially after controversy about him arose in relation to the (controlled opposition) Charlottesville Nazi-antifa clashes of August 2017 that were spinned and blamed on Trump.
  • The Daily Stormer news site overtook the premier Nazi forum in traffic in mid 2016. By early 2017 drew “nearly half a million unique monthly visitors.” That’s not too huge, but still, this growth is fascinating considering ISGP, at its peak in late 2016 and early 2017, drew about 50,000 unique visitors per month (10 times less). This was fresh after a domain change – thus canceling previous Google ranking penalties – countless links due to the (bogus) Pizzagate controversy, and the removal of tons of duplicate content in search engines. Google penalties for ISGP were already setting in in late 2016, by late 2018 bringing down the site to about 13,000 unique visitors per month (that with tons of additional content). This also is the result of a total boycott in the mainstream and alternative media. If this can be done to ISGP, why not to these way, way, way more outrageous Nazi sites? There’s little doubt that all this media attention to Daily Stormer – and likely very modest or no Google ranking hits – actually serves the purpose of building it up. National security trolls obviously are an important factor as well.
    • February 8, 2017,, ‘The White Nationalist from Worthington: The rise of Andrew Anglin’s neo-Nazi website, the Daily Stormer’: “Historically, had been the online hub of neo-Nazi activity, but last summer the Daily Stormer took over as the most-read white supremacist website in the world, and during the culmination of the presidential campaign last fall, the site’s readership spiked considerably. now enjoys more than 10 million page views from nearly half a million unique monthly visitors, according to estimates from Alexa, a company that charts commercial web-traffic data.”
  • Almost predictably, in high school, Anglin actually was a pretty serious vegan Antifa, and eventually started to riot like one:
    • February 8, 2017,, ‘The White Nationalist from Worthington: The rise of Andrew Anglin’s neo-Nazi website, the Daily Stormer’: “Andrew Anglin was simply Andy, a high school freshman at Worthington’s Linworth Alternative school, where he attended classes beginning in 1999 [and was until about 2001-2002] At the time, he was a devout vegan [friends say]. “But he wasn’t that kind of vegan,” said one former friend, describing other vegan students who carefully researched their diets. “He was the guy who ate a bag of Fritos and that was his meal for the day.” Others recalled Anglin going so far as to shop for vegan skateboarding shoes. … Acquaintances alternately described his style as “hippy grunge” or “Nirvana-meets-some-music-fest-spiritual.” … “We were all socially liberal, and he was in line with everybody in our small, alternative school,” said a friend. His favorite bands at the time mirrored this worldview: [antifa bands] Propagandhi, Dead Kennedys and Crass. …
      “When people used homophobic or racist slurs around him [in high school], he was very outspoken about saying that was not OK,” said an acquaintance. “And that has stuck with me to this day. It’s ingrained in me. He was so adamant about that…” …
      Even in high school, Anglin was something of a provocateur, though his targets were generally conservative leaders, like President George W. Bush, or fundamentalist Christianity. One friend noted he had unique perspectives on myriad topics, which made him an interesting conversationalist since it was impossible to predict what he might say next. …
      Beginning during his sophomore year, some classmates noted a marked change in Anglin. His moods could be more unpredictable, and he started to provoke older students to fight, “like he wanted to get hit,” one person explained. Another longtime friend put it more bluntly, saying, “If you go out for a drink [with Anglin], then you’re either going to fight or stop someone from kicking his head in. He just doesn’t care.” …
      After Anglin transferred to Worthington Kilbourne [graduating in 2003], he lost touch with many of his Linworth Alternative classmates. He ditched his vegan diet, which was the first attribute anyone mentioned when discussing his teen years. … After high school, biographical details on Anglin grow hazy. He took classes at Columbus State Community College in 2003…”
  • Claims that 9/11 is what awakened him to the truth. Spend time in 2003-2004 traveling around the country, going to various truth conferences. Founded in 2006 and ran it until mid 2008. For some time it was linked to by Alex Jones websites as and, until, similar to, Jones started cutting ties with conspiracy Nazis – sticking to John Birch Society-type disinformers. Unfortunately, has been removed from webarchive.
    • January 19, 2013, totalfascism, ‘The Truth About the Truth Movement: A List of Shills (abridged)’: “My name is Andrew Barret Anglin, I was born on July 27, 1984 in Columbus, Ohio. … After hearing Alex Jones for the first time at the age of 17, just after 9/11, I became involved in the alleged “truth movement,” and for the most part my issues with illicit substances [and violence] cleared up rather quickly… I had been given sight into something beyond myself, some bigger cause.
      In these later teen years, I was involved in Myspace activism [founded in August 2003], which was popular among “truthers” at the time, and when they deleted my account in 2003 for alleged “hate speech,” I started my own news site at This site became rather notable, and I was frequently linked to by [CIA-tied conspiracy disinformation guru] Alex Jones, before being blacklisted by his shill organization for naming the Jew [as was].”
    • December 16, 2016, The Atlantic, ‘The Making of an American Nazi: How did Andrew Anglin go from being an antiracist vegan to the alt-right’s most vicious troll and propagandist—and how might he be stopped?”: “Anglin threw himself into this world after high school [2003-2004] as he drove around the country, listening to truthers and living out of his Honda Civic. … Anglin was by then [in 2006] spending a lot of time on [“conspiracy CIA” disinformation central] 4chan… Over time, the humor receded and the racism [of a 4chan member] stuck [with him]. “4chan was more influential on me than anything,” Anglin told me over email last year before he cut off communication. …
      In November 2006, Anglin launched his own conspiracy-theory website, virtually all traces of which were removed from the internet during the time I was reporting this story. He called the site Outlaw Journalism, a tribute to Hunter S. Thompson, whom he idolized, though Anglin’s writing more closely resembled the rantings of Alex Jones—outrageous posts laced with misogyny and anti-immigrant sentiment.
      Elsewhere on his site, Anglin wrote about blood rituals and underground tunnels used by pedophiles and fetus-eaters. He wrote that the government was a “scientific dictatorship” trying to implant microchips in citizens’ brains to create a “worldwide slave grid.”
      This delusional thinking eventually overwhelmed Anglin. “I just about lost my fucking mind on that conspiracy shit,” he admitted on a podcast years later. He withdrew to a relative’s farm, most likely his maternal grandmother’s 84-acre property south of Columbus, which had woods, a stream, and fields. “I had some issues, and moved to the country,” he wrote on Outlaw Journalism in May 2007…
      But he couldn’t stay away from the truthers. He created the Outlaw Forum, a 4chan-esque board where people could burble about conspiracies. Before long, they began harassing other truthers with whom Anglin clashed. It was his first cybermob. …
      Anglin didn’t buy into the Holohoax right away, but a nascent anti-Semitism infused his early writing. He riffed about the “Zionist Occupied Government” and urged readers to contact the German Embassy to protest the conviction of an infamous Holocaust denier for breaking a law against inciting hatred. …
      That June [2008], he published what would be his last post on Outlaw Journalism for years. It was a warning about the banking system, one-world government, organ harvesting, and plant–animal gene-splicing. “Glowing green monkeys are able to have baby glowing green monkeys,” he wrote. “The only logical path for humanity to take is to utterly abandon [civilization] and return to a hunter/gatherer lifestyle,” he concluded.”
  • In mid to late 2008 Anglin went to Southeast Asia and ended up living in the Philippines. At the time he was reading He’d been reading The Hero With A Thousand Faces book of the Laurance Rockefeller and Paul Mellon-backed mythologist Joseph Campbell, trying to set up his own “hero’s journey”. For months he stayed at the Sampaguita Tourist Inn, a $10-a-night hotel in Davao City that his father paid for. According to his American friend here, Edward, Anglin hit on every pretty young local girl, spending the night with many, including the occasional 14-year-old one. Here he criticized the influence of white culture and how it destroyed traditional cultures.
  • Went to live with the remote T’boli tribe, a day’s journey from electricity. In January 2012 Anglin launched the website Reality Situation to document his travels, trying to get even deeper into the jungle. According to his friend, Edward, Anglin, who still was deep into UFO, paranormal and other conspiracy disinformation, “was going to go back to the jungle to be the white savior and teach everybody how to grow crops properly. [And also] to marry two 16-year-old Muslim girls. He’d already met them and was buying them livestock for the dowry.” Last time Edward saw him, Anglin complained that the tribe had rejected him: “They’re a bunch of idiots. Monkeys.” By that time he had shaved his head and was dressed “street tough”. He was about to get back to Naziism – only deeper.
    • January 15, 2014, totalfascism, ‘Andrew Anglin Addresses the Attacks on His Person’: “At the time, I felt as though that [family unit still] was to be found among the more primitive societies. And it was. It simply turned out that I didn’t belong there.
      After having spent more than a year among stone age types of people, I became discouraged, as it was clear to me that I would never be able to develop a meaningful relationship with these people, given that their minds were as primitive as their mode of living. I realized that the romantic philosophies I had indulged in regarding the simple life were simply romantic fantasy. The intellectualism that was necessary to imagine such things was never going to be present in the primitive world, and thus the reality of living in the jungle, picking fruit and hunting wild boar, could never match the idealization of this life.
      While living in the jungle, I began drinking too much of a strong coconut wine brewed by the locals, began to feel deeply depressed and alone, and eventually left that life behind, forever. It was only among my own kind – those of the European race – that I would ever be able to share true kinship, as it is only they who share my blood, and can understand my soul. …
      By the Grace of God, I found Adolf Hitler. … At this point, I returned to China, where I began delving back into literature. What I found was Mussolini, and then Adolf Hitler. … Before starting my own website, I looked for others who shared my positions, and found very little. Though I located, and became enthralled with, William Luther Pierce, it seemed that at present, there was no one in America effectively presenting a comprehensive worldview of Euro-centric traditionalism.”
  • While allying himself with controlled opposition Nazi William Luther Pierce, he founded Total Fascism at in December 2012. It was a hate-breeding Nazi blog that attacked leading conspiracy disinformation Nazi website as and – essentially for not being Nazi enough. It’s top picture in 2013 was a group of German children giving the Nazi salute.

Jeff Rense, who did the interview with Duff, has been unflinching in his support of racial Jews, while attacking “Zionists.” Though Rense represents a specific and insane branch of the supposed anti-Zionist movement, given that he also promotes UFOs, “chemtrails” and various New Age/Art Bell gibberish, I would place the pathetic White-hating Arab terrorist and multicultural-invasion supporter Mark Glenn, along with Jew Mike Rivero in this camp as well.”

  • Apart from Pierce, Anglin allied himself with Richard Spencer.
    • August 6, 2017, Daily Stormer, ‘Andrew Anglin and Richard Spencer: Top Notch Podcast, Bro – Good Job, Guys’.
  • Founded DailyStormer news site in mid 2013. Looking at it as of February 16, 2019, the Joe Rogan – Alex Jones feud is right at the top. ISGP has described both men to be conspiracy disinformers. Anglin basically says the same thing, but only because they won’t attack “the Jews”. It’s just the usual conspiracy-disinformation circus.
    • February 15, 2019, Daily Stormer, ‘World War Jones: Joe Rogan Called Black People “Planet of the Apes”‘: “From the frontlines of the infowars, World War Jones continues. Joe Rogan – who is working with satanic pedophiles – is on the ropes. Here’s the latest. …

It is about Joe Rogan going to see Planet of the Apes using the iPhone app and he says he asked the taxi driver if it was a good neighborhood and the driver couldn’t speak English and said yes. But when he walked into the theater, “we walked into Planet of the Apes – there was no white people.” [Note, as usual, Alex Jones is lying and manipulating]”
  • Already beck in 2007 Anglin was into Reptilian humanoid theories of David Icke. Later, in May 2014, he founded the (horribly-looking) new age conspiracy website, where he pushed readers to “embrace diversity” (the exact opposite of his Nazi sites). It was little more than a hardcore reptilian and shark humanoid-related sci-fi troll site, however. What is truly bizarre is that he supposedly received 70,000 visitors for a basic, unhinged troll post. The site existed until mid 2018, although the last post dated to December 12, 2014.

William Luther Pierce

Henry Regnery (1912-1996)

  • 1947 founder of Regnery Publishing, later named Regnery Publishing, Inc., today part of the Council for National Policy network through the Salem Media Group, which also owns the news site.
  • In 1957 Regnery was present at the 10th anniversary meeting of the Mont Pelerin Society. In the same period Henry Regnery became involved with the hard-right CIA- and DOD-tied American Security Council. His publishing firm can also be tied to the CIA directly and various additional indirect ways:
    • ISGP’s 2011 American Security Council article discusses the Regnery family: “William H. Regnery: Co-founder [ASC]. Deeply involved in the America First Committee with his family. Credited with playing a role in the founding of the ASC.
      Henry F. Regnery: Involved with the ASC 1957-1967: Son of William. Founder of Regnery Publishing 1947. Published books of Howard Hunt, Friedrich Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, William Buckley, [CIA director] William Casey, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and other extreme conservatives. Published a book that promoted the Moonies, as well as the first roman to describe dissociate indentity disorder and how a person suffering from this affliction can have various alters. Also published a number of UFO [disinformation] books, including those of J. Allen Hynek, Jacques Vallee, Charles Bowen and Raymond Drake. “Rumor” has it that the publishing firm was CIA supported.”

      Regnery also published the 1999 book ‘Allen Dulles: Master of Spies’ by James Srodes and the 2005 book ‘Fidel: Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant’ by Humberto Fontova.
    • Unfortunately, going back, no primary source for the Regnery-CIA link can be found, although the additional information provided in the following secondary source is genuine:
      2008 edition, Glen Yeadon (left-wing activist) and John Hawkins, ‘The Nazi Hydra In Fascist America’, p. 188 (online at (accessed: January 24, 2001), author unknown, except for “White Rose”, but seemingly Yeadon; decently-sourced, but no source for the Howard Hunt claim) : “William Regnery was also one of the founders of the American Security Council, he was later replaced by his son Henry. Regnery and two other isolationists began broadcasting Human Events and in 1947 started the Regnery publishing business. Interesting enough the first two titles published by Regnery were critical of the Nuremberg Trials. The third book Regnery published was another pro-Nazi attacking the allies air campaign. In 1954 Regnery published two books for the John Birch Society. He was also the publisher behind Buckley’s [CIA] God and Man at Yale. In light of the publishing of the pro-Nazi books it is interesting to note that Regnery Publishing was subsidized by the CIA according to Howard Hunt. … Henry Regnery along with Bunker Hunt funded Western Goals an organization that is now dead.”
    • The claim that Howard Hunt at one point stated that Regnery Publishing used to be financed by the CIA makes additionally sense (apart from the deep ASC and conspiracy disinformation links) if we look at the fact that William F. Buckley’s God and Man at Yale (1951) was published by Regnery. At the time of publication, no one knew that Buckley was an overseas “deep cover” agent whose lone handler was… E. Howard Hunt – who later also was published by Regnery. Buckley largely founded the Cold War conservative movement with this book, followed by the National Review in 1955. He was a total elitist though: Yale Skull & Bones, CFR, Bilderberg, Rockefeller-supporter, Hollinger, etc.
  • Additional info on Regnery Publishing:
    • (accessed: February 26, 2019): “From the very start, Regnery has been a major force within the conservative movement, publishing such authors as Russell Kirk (The Conservative Mind), William F. Buckley Jr. (God and Man at Yale)…
      Regnery has boasted one of the best batting averages in the publishing business–placing more than fifty books on the New York Times bestseller list, including numerous books at #1. [These include books of] Ann Coulter, David Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin,… Newt Gingrich, … Mark Levin, … David Horowitz, … Donald Trump, and many more.”
  • In 2014 Regnery Publishing became part of the Salem Media Group, headed by two leading Council for National Policy members.
    • (accessed: February 26, 2019): “Known previously as the Henry Regnery Company, Gateway Editions Limited, and Regnery Gateway Incorporated, Regnery Publishing became part of Eagle Publishing in 1993 and joined Salem Media Group in 2014, where it lives within the Salem Eagle family of companies.”
    • (accessed: February 26, 2019): “The country’s leading publisher of conservative books.”

Alfred S. Regnery (b. 1942)

  • Son of Henry Regnery (1912-1996). Lawyer. As a 14-year-old boy, present with his father at the 1957 Mont Pelerin Society meeting in Switzerland. In the 1970s he served as legal counsel to Republican Senator Paul Laxalt of Nevada – a favorite of the American Security Council – and to the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

William Regnery II

  • William Regnery II is a member of a publishing family that was involved with the hard-right CIA- and DOD-tied American Security Council and can also be tied to the CIA directly.
  • William Regnery, II financed a network of “alt-right” (Nazi really) institutes, societies and journals throughout the 2000s that was used in particular after the November 2016 Donald Trump election to stigmatize any opponents of immigration. Key in this network are the Charles Martel Society (2001) and the National Policy Institute (2005).
    • July 23, 2017, Buzzfeed, ‘The Moneyman Behind the Alt-Right’: “An unforeseen phenomenon named Donald Trump gave legitimacy to what Regnery had seeded long before: the alt-right. …
      William Regnery II [his] traceable donations have gone chiefly to two organizations, both of which he established and led as founding president. The first was the secretive Charles Martel Society, named for a leading figure of the European Middle Ages who fought off Muslim invaders. That organization helped create the second: the innocuously named National Policy Institute, which became a nerve center of the alt-right. In 2011, Regnery hired Richard Spencer, the charismatic speaker widely credited with coining that term, to be the NPI’s president and director. …
      Alfred Regnery, the son of Henry Regnery, the famous publisher, confirmed that his cousin was ill-suited for a career in business: “That was the consensus in the family.””
  • Leading proteges of William Regnery, II have included or include Jared Taylor, Samuel Francis, Sam Dickson, Richard Spencer, and others.
  • Top figure since the rise of Trump in 2016 in the so-called “alt-right” movement – which really is an artifically created term to associate all forms of anti-establishment conservativism with white supremacism and Naziism. Spencer is even said to have coined the term. Spencer tries to hide it a bit, but Nazi-admiration just oozes from many of his speeches, associations and even the way he dressed occasionally.
  • Since 2011 the president of the nationalist, conservative and semi-Nazi National Policy Institute (NPI). The NPI was founded by William Regnery II, a member of a publishing family which can be tied to the CIA and American Security Council.
  • Along with likely “liberal CIA” plant Jason Kessler, Spencer was a key organizer of the pro-Trump, Nazi-dominated, anti-immigration protest/march of August 11-12, 2017 in Charlottesville that made headlines around the world, especially after one of the protestors killed a counter-protestor. The intended purpose of the rally was to oppose the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee from Emancipation Park.
    The removal of nationalist/colonialist statues is an organized globalist plot, going on in the U.S., England and even mainland Europe. Thus it stands to reason that the counter-movement, represented by Spencer and allies, as usual, also is controlled.
    • August 13, 2017, The Guardian, ‘Far-right rally organiser chased away after Charlottesville speech’: “Jason Kessler, the organiser of Saturday’s far-right rally in Charlottesville, was chased away by protesters in the city on Sunday afternoon after he tried to give a press conference. He tried to hold a joint media appearance with the “alt-right” leader Richard Spencer in the city centre…”
    • August 15, 2017, ABC News, ‘$3 million lawsuit filed against organizers of Charlottesville white nationalist rally’: “Kessler organized the rally to protest… Also named in the lawsuit is Richard Spencer, who organized a similar demonstration on May 13 in protest of the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue, according to the complaint. Spencer, a Virginia resident, helped to organize and promote the Unite the Right rally, the court document states. …
      Several other people whom the lawsuit claims organized and promoted the Unite the Right rally — including former Ku Klux Klan imperial wizard David Duke — and organizations such as the Traditionalist Worker Party, the League of the South, Vanguard America, The Nationalist Front, National Policy Institute [of Richard Spencer], the Council of Conservative Citizens,, American Freedom Keepers were also named in the lawsuit for allegedly inciting violence that day. Kessler is a member and agent of Vanguard America [basically consists of a mega-cheap, WordPress-templated Nazi website], according to the complaint.”
  • November 29, 2016, Richard Spencer speech at the National Policy Institute (of which he is president) annual conference in Washington, D.C. (great elements to the speech, which unfortunately are tied in with Naziism and the usual silly left-right game): “The mainstream media, or maybe we should refer to them in the original German, Lugenpresse [Lying Press; laughing and cheering in the crowd]. …
    We invade the world and fanatically invite entire populations who despise us. … The protection of the borders … is ignored. Indeed, western governments go out of their way to seek out the most dysfunctional immigrants possible and relocate them at taxpayer expense. The non-government organizations who support this colonization effort are given huge amounts of money to make their own communities worse. Is this normal? … A white who takes pride in his ancestors’ accomplishments is evil, but a white who refuses to accept guilt for his ancestors’ sins is also evil – maybe even more so. … White families work their whole lives to send their children to universities, where they will be told jus how despicable they are. … a wealthy Jewish celebrity bragging about the end of white man is the one speaking “truth to power”. In the current year, if you are physically strong, you are fragile. Black is beautiful, but whiteness is toxic. Government doesn’t stop crime, but subsidizes it. White privilige is very real, but race is just a social construct. When facts are too disturbing, you can always retreat into the “safe space” of box juice, teddy bears and endless empathy where reality doesn’t have to matter anymore. …
    Yes, we should insist on our dreams – on the conquest of space, on the development of revolutionary technology, for a humanity that is greater than we are today, for a race that travels forever on the upward path. … [But] we run up deficits and pretend that the laws of history simply don’t apply to us. …
    At another level, what we want is something normal, something almost prosaic maybe even boring. Why is something as simple as starting a family, owning a house, and leaving a legacy to your children seen as an almost impossible dream for so many Americans? Why must there be two incomes for a family simply to break even? Why is it impossible to build a real civic society because the whim of a federal bureaucrat or a Social Justice Warrior can impose Section 8 housing, refugee resettlement, or some other population transfer scheme deliberately designed to break apart functional white communities? …
    We take for granted our culture is filth, that the mass transit won’t work, that the cities are rotted out from within, that the great art and architecture of the West has all essentially been made. We collectively know that our country’s best days are behind it.
    In the current year one’s career can be ruined and one’s life destroyed if you express anything other than admiration for a man who decides to cut off his genitals and say he’s a woman. … Beauty is openly denigrated as an offense to equality. …
    Those leading the protests against Trump, probably some of those outside of this very building, come from some of the most extreme communist groups in the country, the most murderous ideological force in history. … This is a sick, disgusting society, ran by the corrupt, defended by hysterics, drunk on self-hatred and degeneracy.
    It’s not just that they are leftists and cucks [submissive to women]. … It’s not just that many are genuinely stupid. Indeed, one wonders if these people are people at all, or instead soulless Golems [a Jewish supernatural creature] animated by some dark power to repeat some talking point…
    To be white is to be a striver, a crusader, an explorer, and a conquerer. We build, we produce, we go upward. And we recognize the central why of American race relations: we don’t exploit other groups; we don’t gain anything from their presence; they need us – and not the other way around. [lots of clapping] … Within the very blood in our vains as the children of the sun lies the potential for greatness. That is the great struggle we are called to. We are not meant to live in shame and weakness and disgrace. We were not meant to beg for moral validation from some of the most despicable creatures to ever populate the planet [apparently blacks, and possibly Jews]. … We were meant to overcome, all of it – because that is natural and normal for us. …
    The press has clearly decided to double down and wage war against the legitimacy of Trump and the continued existence of white America. … Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail victory! [Standing ovation by most of the crowd; two give Hitler salutes, one wiry person rather spastically; many shaved heads and comb overs though]”

  • Until his death in 2010, Eustace Mullins was one of the most revered authors in conspiracy circles for his books The Secrets of the Federal Reserve (1952) and The World Order: A Study in the Hegemony of Parasitism (1985) – which are to be found online. In these books Mullins writes about the Eastern Establishment and names as Rockefeller and Rothschild. While there are regular jabs at the Jews in his books, many of his readers – such as this author for the first couple of years – are not aware that Eustace Mullins was part of closely-knit network of Nazi-worhsipping holocaust deniers.
  • Among the conspiracy Nazi conferences he attended was the Liberty Lobby’s Barnes Review conferences.
  • Protege of the fascist poet Ezra Pound, who had his work published by the CIA- and American Security Council-tied Regnery family. Also a protege of CIA- and Council for National Policy-tied Hunt family.
  • A more extensive biography is to be found in ISGP’s oversight The No-Planers of 9/11 “Truth”; How Pentagon, Flight 93 and WTC Pod Theories Paralyzed A Research Community That Never Existed.

  • Roughtly about 10-13% (1 in 10, 1 in 8) of prominent and semi-prominent 9/11 researchers are Holocaust “revisionists”. Whenever you look deeper behind this term, you always – always! – find people sympathetic to Nazi ideology who usually are part of some kind of organized Nazi network. A major example here would be the Liberty Lobby’s Barnes Review conferences, which contains a major 9/11 “Truth” element.
  • “Revisionism” simply doesn’t make sense for people in Europe, many of who still have grandmothers who remember how the Jews were taken away during World War II – and seldom, if ever, came back. One can question a few things regarding Auschwitz – maybe – but the Babi Yar and the East-European extermination camps make it plenty clear what happened.
  • Examples of Holocaust “revising” 9/11 “Truth” activists who coincidentally also push disinformative no-plane theories regarding 9/11: Christopher Bollyn, Greg Szymanski, Michael Collins Piper, Dr. James Fetzer, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, Eric Hufschmid, John Kaminski and a number of others. Readers can find pictures and biographies of all these persons in ISGP’s oversight The No-Planers of 9/11 “Truth”; How Pentagon, Flight 93 and WTC Pod Theories Paralyzed A Research Community That Never Existed. The names in question are affixed with a “^”.
  • Among the tiny handful of 9/11 “researchers” who have tried to put no-plane theories to rest, we find a different kind of disinformer in Ryan Dawson and Mike Rivero. These individuals are listed separately in the oversight just linked.
  • Then there’s also Hutton Gibson, the father of Mel Gibson, who is both skeptical of 9/11 and a Holocaust denier. And there’s famous New World Order author Eustace Mullins, who agrees with the usual 9/11 disinformation and is a raging Jew-hating Nazi. These individuals too are listed separately in the oversight just linked.

U.S.: Timothy McVeigh of the Oklahoma Bombing

  • U.S.-based black Islamic cult founded in 1930 in Detroit. Its founder, the largely white Wallace D. Fard Muhammad, disappeared from the face of the Earth in 1934. His protege, the black Elijah Muhammad led the Nation of Islam from 1934 to 1975.
  • From the start, the Nation of Islam has taught that:
    • “Blackman” is the original man, originating “66 million years” ago in the “Asian black nation” and of the “tribe of Shabazz”.
    • White people are “devils” created later by a scientist named Yakub (the Biblical and Qur’anic Jacob) on the Greek island of Patmos.
    • Blacks are superior to whites.
    • The demise of the white race is imminent.
  • In June 1961 George Lincoln Rockwell and other leaders of the American Nazi Party visited an 8,000 seat Nation of Islam rally, where they listened to a speech of Malcolm X. The two groups were able to agree and bond at the time over thier mutual hatred of Jews and calls for separatism (not “segregation”) between blacks and whites:
    • (accessed: February 17, 2019): “In 1961, Elijah Muhammad, founder of the black supremacist Nation of Islam, met with Ku Klux Klan leaders at the Magnolia Hall in Atlanta. Although they had different ideas about the skin color of the master race, they shared the belief that blacks and whites should stay separate. The following year, Muhammad invited American Nazi Party chief George Lincoln Rockwell to attend a Nation convention, even though Rockwell had often called blacks “the lowest scum of humanity”. Rockwell became enchanted with the idea of a coalition; Nazis and Black Muslims could be allies, since they both sought the same goal—separation of the races.
      On Sunday, June 25, 1961, Rockwell and ten troopers attended a Black Muslim rally… He told reporters he considered the Muslims “black Nazis”. “I am fully in concert with their program and I have the highest respect for Mr. Elijah Muhammad”. Rockwell pointed out his only disagreement with the Muslims was over territory. ”They want a chunk of America and I prefer that they go to Africa”. …
      After several introductory speakers, Malcolm X stepped to the microphone to deliver a talk entitled “Separation or Death”. “Muslims are not for integration and not for segregation”. Looking up at the audience as if to beg the question, he asked what they “were for”. The audience shouted “Separation!”. Rockwell and the troopers vigorously applauded. Later when the audience was asked for donations and Rockwell contributed $20.”
    • April 16, 2015, Vice, ‘When Malcolm X Met the Nazis: A look at the strange alliance between the Nation of Islam and the American Nazi Party.’: “Overt anti-Semitism, it turned out, was something the two groups could bond over. While Rockwell pushed his hatred of Jews to frothy extremes, Muhammad backed a range of racist theories, including the hoax that the Jews had financed the slave trade. (Malcolm X was cagier about his anti-Semitism, often deferring to Muhammad’s conspiracy theories rather than offering his own.)”
  • Malcolm X was the most famous historic (co-)leader of the Nation of Islam, in his case from the 1952 until March 1964. By that time Malcolm X had increasingly become the favored face of the Nation of Islam over Elijah, despite Malcolm X approving of JFK’s death. After he left, Malcolm X received death threats by the Nation of Islam on the orders of an envious Elijah Muhammad. In March 1964, Muhammad told Boston minister Louis X (Louis Farrakhan) that “hypocrites like Malcolm should have their heads cut off”, with Louis X writing in the December 4 issue of Muhammad Speaks that “such a man as Malcolm is worthy of death”. On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was shot to death with a sawed-off shotgun and handguns by three Nation of Islam members during a rally. In the days and months before his death, Malcolm continually gave off warnings that the Nation of Islam was looking to kill him.
  • Era of Louis Farrakhan (1981-present):
    • Louis X (Farrakhan) was a Sunni Imam working under Warith Deen Mohammed, the seventh son of Elijah Muhammed, in 1975–1978. He disagreed with Warith turning the Nation of Islam into a mainstream Muslim branch that accepted white people, took 2 million people with it, and eventually became the American Society of Muslims. In 1981 Farrakhan (softly) broke with Warith and restarted the original anti-white Nation of Islam, officially incorporating it in 1981. He has been the leader of the Nation of Islam ever since.
    • In 1985 the Nation of Islam received $5 million from Muammar Gaddafi’s World Islamic Call Society, with Gaddafi also offering weapons to start a black Muslim nation in the U.S. Farrakhan was more interested in additional economic aid.
    • As discussed in great detail in ISGP’s oversight The No-Planers of 9/11 “Truth”, Louis Farrakhan not only hates whites, he even more hates Jews, questions the Holocaust, and spreads blatant conspiracy and UFO disinformation. In case of discussing questions of 9/11, he was taking all his info from Holocaust-denying 9/11 disinformers Victor Thorn and Christopher Bollyn.

  • Heritage’s association with William Buckley, Jr., the founder of the Cold War “conservative movement” – despite being Yale Skull & Bones, CIA, CFR, Bilderberg, a Rockefeller supporter and a Hollinger Group trustee.
    • March 25, 2004,, ‘William F. Buckley Jr. in “The March of Freedom”‘: “His association with The Heritage Foundation is a long one. He was a featured speaker in 1980 at the dedication of the Noble and Coors Buildings, our first Heritage headquarters. He also spoke when we dedicated the Fertig Board Room in our current building. But off the public platform, the private Buckley has been a friend of mine and of Heritage. Bill’s talent for hospitality and his unfailing good humor have steadied and unified the conservative movement. At his semi-annual dinners and discussions, all the disparate factions of conservatism are invited and reminded of the battle against a common enemy that is more important than the squabbles among natural allies.”
  • David Brock used to be a research fellow at the Heritage Foundation in the early 1990s:
    • 2006, Manuel G. Gonzales and Richard Delgado, ‘Politics of Fear: How Republicans Use Money, Race and the Media to Win’, p. 36: “Conservative turncoat David Brock, who received the grandiose title of John M. Olin Fellow in Congressional Studies at the Heritage Foundation even without having an advanced degree, received $11,000 from the Olin and Bradley foundations to research and write The Real Anita Hill, a hatchet job on Clarence Thomas’s accuser, a 1994 best seller that was warmly embraced by the conservative set. [65]
      (Brock was not very impressed by the intellectual vigor displayed in the position papers, written by nominally independent researchers, that the Heritage Foundation churned out: “Essentially, the papers backed up an already fixed ideological viewpoint, dictated directly by a tier of Heritage executives who decided the organization’s position on a given issue, and indirectly by the outside foundations that held Heritage’s purse strings.”) [60]”

  • The Hoover Institution does not oppose massive Third World immigration. Just wants it to be more hand-picked and tailored to industry. It does not care about crime, IQ, or cultural issues.
    • December 4, 2014, Edward Paul Lazear, (and Wall Street Journal), ‘An Immigration Game Plan For The New Congress’ (based on 5-minute YouTube presentation of Lazear that paints immigrants as model citizen with model families (two kissing, husband kissing wife goodbye): “President Obama ‘s unilateral action on immigration [to keep 5 million illegals here] angered many in Congress and among the public. With Republicans taking control of Congress, it is tempting to respond aggressively. Instead, a more measured and constructive approach would move the country forward and address the concerns that the voters expressed in the recent election. …
      First, use market indicators to award green cards that favor immigrants in needed occupations and industries. … Most immigrants come to the U.S. on the basis of family ties, not on the basis of their skills. … Typically, fewer than one-sixth of immigrants each year obtain green cards based on their skills… The easiest way to determine which industries and occupations are experiencing labor shortages is to identify those with rapid wage growth. When labor demand rises relative to supply, wages go up. …
      [Seems contradictory, as keeping wages “stable” in a country with an ever-decreasing native population still constitutes depressing the wages through immigration:] Several studies over the years show that it would not significantly depress domestic wages. One study by Zvi Eckstein and Yoram Weiss on the massive Soviet migration to Israel [which was a newborn country]… Robert LaLonde and Robert H. Topel (American Economic Review, 1991) and Giovanni Peri (Institute for the Study of Labor, 2014) provide evidence that immigrants have negligible effects on those already in a country…
      Second, create a new class of visa [that] provide[s] for a guest-worker program. … Most Americans accept that those who have entered illegally or overstayed their visas have committed a crime. Complete amnesty seems inappropriate and would encourage illegal entry in the future. As an alternative to deportation, however, one reasonable approach is to fine undocumented immigrants rather than deport them.
      Third, use employer-based incentives to deal with illegal immigration, past and future.”

  • Conservative think tank founded in 1961 by disgruntled RAND Corporation researchers Herman Kahn (alleged IQ of 200), Max Singer and Oscar M. Ruebhausen.
    • (accessed: March 10, 2019): “Herman Kahn, Max Singer, and Oscar Ruebhausen founded Hudson Institute in 1961 in Croton-on-Hudson.”
  • This think tank was founded after Kahn published his 1960 book On Thermonuclear War. The book laid out various thermonuclear war scenarios, arguing that despite the potential for “megadeath” (first time this term was used) such a war is both “survivable” and “winnable” in case of proper civil defense. Kahn especially received criticism for suggesting that older people should be given the most radioactive food.
    Secondly, Kahn introduced the the “doomsday machine” concept to make the case that having a strong conventional army to opposed the Soviet Union is very much needed – and that you can’t just rely on Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) to prevent all conflict.
    Kahn’s book was published by Princeton University Press and was not approved of by the RAND Corporation. In 1964 his book was extensively used in Stanley Kubrick’s comedy Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
  • Kahn received the blessing of New York State Governor Nelson Rockefeller – a major supporter of Kahn’s idea to build massive amounts of nuclear fall-out shelters – in setting up the Hudson Institute, becoming a close advisor to the governor and serving on many of his committees. Reubhausen was even closer to Nelson Rockefeller – already well before the founding of the institute.
    • December 12, 2004, New York Times, ‘Oscar M. Ruebhausen, 92, Former Rockefeller Adviser’: “Intimate but unpaid adviser to [Nelson] Rockefeller for many years, although he refused the governor’s offers to serve in his administration or his family foundations. … Robert R. Douglass, said that Mr. Ruebhausen “was never really in the limelight, but he was a major influence on the governor,” whom he had known since at least 1950… He was chairman of the boards of the Russell Sage Foundation and the Greenwall Foundation [and had] graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College and then from Yale Law School…”
    • 2014, Richard Norton Smith, ‘On His Own Terms: A Life of Nelson Rockefeller’: “More to the governor’s taste were maverick thinkers such as Hudson Institute director Herman Kahn… “He’s always entertaining,” said Rockefeller, “and he always got great ideas [when he visits].” …
      For reasons obvious to everyone but [Nelson] Rockefeller, [in 1961 President] Kennedy was reluctant to meet with him in his capacity as chairman of the Civil Defense Committee of the Conference of Governors. Relying on the counsel of Edward Teller, Herman Kahn, and other hard-liners, Rockefeller estimated the cost of an adequate national shelter program at $20 billion, one hundred times the amount Kennedy had in mind.
      [Governor Nelson] Rockefeller had good reason to cultivate Berger [for] the [1973] Scott Commission, already stocked by the governor with such heavyweights as … General Lucius Clay [once hardline anti-JFK; senior partner Lehman Brothers], and Hudson Institute guru Herman Kahn.”

  • Libertarian / neoliberal think tank founded in 1977 by Sir Anthony Fisher and CIA director William Casey as a New York City-based offshoot of the Mont Pelerin Society.
  • Financing: Almost all “conservative CIA” foundations.

  • Think tank and conference center founded in 1947 by economist Friedrich von Hayek.
  • Hayek wrote the corporate-sponsored book The Road to Serfdom (1945), which associated Naziism and fascism with socialism and communism. A condensed version was published by the ultraright-dominated Reader’s Digest. Later it was also distributed by General Motors, which, like Reader’s Digest, had been a pre-WWII promotor of the Nazi regime against communist aggression.
    • 1945, Friedrich Hayek, ‘The Road to Serfdom’, condensed version of the Reader’s Digest: “Long before the Nazis, too, the German and Italian socialists were using techniques of which the Nazis and fascists later made effective use. The idea of a political party which embraces all activities of the individual from the cradle to the grave, which claims to guide his views on everything, was first put into practice by the socialists. It was not the fascists but the socialists who began to collect children at the tenderest age into political organization to direct their thinking…
      It was the socialists who first insisted that the party member should distinguish himself from others by the modes of greeting and the forms of address. It was they who, by their organization of ‘cells’ and devices for the permanent supervision of private life, created the prototype of the totalitarian party. By the time Hitler came to power, liberalism was dead in Germany. And it was socialism that had killed it. To many who have watched the transition from socialism to fascism at close quarters the connection between the two systems has become increasingly obvious, but in the democracies the majority of people still believe that socialism and freedom can be combined. They do not realize that democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable, but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. It is disquieting to see in England and the United States today the same drawing together of forces and nearly the same contempt of all that is liberal in the old sense…
      Totalitarianism is the new word we have adopted to describe the unexpected but nevertheless inseparable manifestations of what in theory we call socialism.”
  • Over the course of his life, Hayek, similar to most American Security Council and Le Cercle members, supported Chilean dictator Pinochet and the colonialist-fascist Salazar of Portugal. Both banned trade unions, with Pinochet in particular torturing and murdering thousands of regime opponents. Milton Friedman and “Chicago School” economists in Chile were closely tied to the coup and introducing neoliberalism under Pinochet.
    • March 3, 2010, New York Times, ‘Fantasies of the Chicago Boys’ (graph shows Chile GDP in 1989 finally 10% up from 1971): “Chile had a huge economic crisis in the early 70s, which was, yes, partly due to Allende and the accompanying turmoil. Then the country experienced a recovery driven in large part by massive capital inflows, which mostly consisted of making up the lost ground. Then there was a huge crisis again in the early 1980s — part of the broader Latin debt crisis, but Chile was hit much worse than other major players. It wasn’t until the late 1980s, by which time the hard-line free-market policies had been considerably softened, that Chile finally moved definitively ahead of where it had been in the early 70s. …
      Friedman wasn’t exactly fond of such [building] codes — see this interview in which he calls such codes a form of government spending, because they “impose costs that you might not privately want to engage in”.”
    • October 19, 1998, The New Yorker, ‘The Dictator’ (whitewash article).
  • Initial Mont Pelerin Society members in 1947 and Ludwig von Mises’ particular extremism:
    • 2008, Alfred S. Regnery, ‘Upstream: The Ascendance of American Conservatism’, pp. 30-33: “The upshot of Hayek’s tour promoting The Road to Serfdom was his decision to gather free-market advocates in April 1947 at the Hotel du Pare on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. The thirty-six participants came from the United States and Western Europe, and after several days of discussion, the Mont Pelerin Society was launched. … At the meeting were, among others, von Mises, the dean of the Austrian school of economics; Wilhelm Roepke, a key player in the great German currency reform of 1948… philosopher Karl Popper; Lionel Robbins from the London School of Economics; George Stigler, Aaron Director, and his brother-in-law Milton Friedman, all from the University of Chicago; American economist Henry Hazlitt; former editor of the Washington Post Felix Morley…
      [At the first meeting] Mises, who became a fixture at society meetings, believed that the government had no role in redistributing income under any circumstances. But many of the members, including Hayke, believed that government ought to alleviate poverty and to undertake certain modest social programs. According to Milton Friedman, after a spirited discussion on the topic, Mises stormed out the room, calling the other members a bunch of socialists. [16] …
      In a sense, the Mont Pelerin Society is representative of the way the conservative movement grew over the years.”
  • Milton Friedman:
    • Friedman’s key mentor since 1932 has been Arthur Burns, a CFR and Pilgrims Society member, both since at least the 1960s. In turn, top superclass member and right-wing David Rockefeller ally George Shultz is a protege of Milton Friedman’s economic theories:
      • Burns: Born in Stanislau, Austria. Earned all his degrees at Columbia University and did most of his teaching there. Economic adviser to president Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. Chairman of the Federal Reserve System 1970-1978. Research associate National Bureau Economic Research, 1930-31, member research staff, 1933-69, director research staff, 1945-53, chairman, 1967-68. Chairman board governors Federal Reserve System, 1970-78. Alternate governor International Monetary Fund, 1973-78. Distinguished scholar in residence Am. Enterprise Institute, 1978-81, 85-87.
      • (March 26, 2019): “He won a scholarship to Rutgers University, studied mathematics and economics, and earned a bachelor’s degree there in 1932. While at Rutgers he encountered Arthur Burns, then a new assistant professor of economics, whom Friedman ultimately regarded as his mentor and most important influence. … Friedman continued his economics studies at the University of Chicago (A.M., 1933) and Columbia University (Ph.D., 1946).”
      • October 24, 2013,, ‘Yellen, the Most Qualified Since Arthur Burns’: “Burns was Friedman’s professor at Columbia and the two were close. Friedman wrote, “Save for my parents and wife, no one has influenced my life more than Arthur.” … When Arthur Burns was nominated by Richard Nixon to be Fed Chair, Milton Friedman wrote in Newsweek, Burns “is the first person ever named Chairman of the Board who has the right qualifications for that post.””
      • 1969, Congressional Record, p. 4041: “As a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Burns is a member in good standing of the Establishment.”
      • Burns appears in the 1969 Pilgrims Society list (likely since earlier in the 1960s), until his death in 1987.
      • February 22, 2017,, ‘George Shultz Recalls CASBS Fellowship’: “[While] dean [1962-1968, and professor since 1957] of the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business [George Shultz] became good friends with Milton Friedman and George Stigler, influential economists who both would win Nobel Prizes and had been fellows at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) in the late 1950s.”
      • December 2, 1980, Executive Intelligence Review: “The fight for Ronald Reagan’s economic soul is not over. It is true that the 11 advisers present at Reagan’s Los Angeles economic summit this week were almost entirely members of the Friedman faction, led by George Shultz, William Simon, Paul McCracken, Arthur Burns, Alan Greenspan, and Friedman himself. …
        “Nobody considers Paul Volcker the enemy,” William Simon told the all Street Journal last week, and urged the Fed chairman to “take even stronger action” than he has so far to
        continue to drive up interest rates.”
      • “Friedman disciples and admirers George Shultz, Henry Kissinger, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Jeffrey Sachs, et al.”
    • Economic advisor to Senator Barry Goldwater (1964), Richard Nixon (1968-1974), Ronald Reagan (1980s) and Margaret Thatcher (1980s).
    • Considered himself a libertarian: played a role in eliminating conscription for the military, opposed discrimination of gays, and favored full drug legalization, from weed to heroin. On the other hand, he also favored doing away with anything from minimum wage to any kind of subsidies. A degree of social security he accepted, but remained greatly conflicted over it due to its anti-market effect.
    • July 19, 2018, The Week, ‘The weaponization of Milton Friedman’: “[In] Friedman’s 1978 University of Chicago speech, “What is America?,” [he] went on to declare that despite the welfare state, Mexican immigration was a “good thing” for America, particularly when it was of the illegal variety. Why? “Because as long as it’s illegal the people who come in do not qualify for welfare, they don’t qualify for Social Security, they don’t qualify for all the other myriads of benefits,” he pointed out. “They take jobs that most residents of this country are unwilling to take, they provide employers with workers of a kind they cannot get.””
    • June 1, 1992,, ‘Interview with Milton Friedman’: “Few things become more permanent than temporary spending. … In my view, reducing the scope of government is our most important single objective. … Building codes impose costs that you might not privately want to engage in, wage and hour laws—and on and on. … I’m not in favor of no government. You do need a government. But by doing so many things that the government has no business doing, it cannot do those things [it should do] well. …
      Immediately after World War II, in the 1940s and throughout the ’50s. It was a climate in which those of us who believed in free markets and in a socially and politically free society were a tiny, very much beleaguered minority. Collectivism—economic, social, political—was very much in the ascendancy. …
      [Interviewer:] I attended a Mont Pelerin Society meeting in Montana last year and they were expressing concern about radical environmentalism and the role of government and were proposing some thoughts along the line of free market environmentalism. …
      One unsolved economic problem of the day is how to get rid of the Federal Reserve. … And so undoubtedly the most urgent problem today is how to find some mechanism for restructuring our political system so as to limit the extent to which it can control our individual lives. …
      Nobody will tell me that the people of this country really favor paying two or three times the world price for sugar. Nobody will tell me that the people of this country believe it is desirable to spend money to provide water to farmers at less than cost in order to enable them to produce crops which the government buys up in part at more than the world price and then has to dispose as surpluses.”
    • Notorious/famous for the “Friedman Doctrine”:
      • 1970, New York Times, ‘The Social Responsibility of Business is to Increase its Profits’: “The businessmen believe that they are defending free enterprise when they declaim that business is not concerned “merely” with profit but also with promoting desirable “social” ends; that business has a “social conscience” and takes seriously its responsibilities for providing employment, eliminating discrimination, avoiding pollution and whatever else may be the catchwords of the contemporary crop of reformers. In fact they are … preaching pure and unadulterated socialism [and] undermining the basis of a free society… Insofar as his actions in accord with his “social responsibility” reduce returns to stockholders, he is spending their money.”
    • “The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank leaned heavily on his ideas in”
    • Reportedly, Friedman and his Chicago School only took issue with government spending and high taxes. It did not mind government bailouts of big business and has presented low interest rates leading to easy credit as the solution to everything (per FED allies Ben Bernanke, Alan Greenspan). Reportedly, there’s a joke of a student falling asleep in a class of Milton Friedman. Friedman wakes her up, upon which she says, “I’m sorry, Professor. I missed the question, but the answer is increase the money supply.”
  • David Rockefeller was tutored by Friedrich von Hayek – a past recipient of Rockefeller Foundation support – and Lionel Robbins at the London School of Economics (LSE) – a recipient of Rockefeller Foundation support – a decade before the Mont Pelerin Society was founded. These economists pointed David Rockefeller to the Rockefeller-founded and -financed University of Chicago, all crucial elements in the founding of the Mont Pelerin Society.
    • 2012, Pedro Garcia Duarte and Gilberto Tadeu Lima, ‘Microfoundations Reconsidered’, pp. 69-70: “In 1929 … [Oskar] Morgenstern … became co-director, with Hayek, of the Austrian Business Cycle Institute [linked to the Nobel Prize-winning Austrian business cycle theory of Mises and Hayek], which had been set up several years previously by [Ludwig von] Mises. In 1930, the organization received five years’ funding from the Rockefeller Foundation, and, a year later, Hayek left Vienna for the London School of Economics…”
    • July-August 1972 issue, American Opinion (John Birch Society), p. 85: “[Except for its economics department] the hothouse for British Socialism has long been the London School of Economics, launched in 1895 by Sidney Webb, a founder of the Fabian Socialist Society. The heaviest contributor to the London School over the years has been the Rockefeller Foundation. From 1934 until at least the early 1950s, the Rockefeller money ran toward London like oil pumped through a pipe. In 1949, a typical year, the Rockefeller Foundation allocated scores of thousands of dollars to the London School of Economics for “special projects.”
      Of course the Rockefellers have not been alone in underwriting this Socialist institution. Another American foundation, the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust, gave £10,000 in 1923 and another £3,000 in 1925. How much more it has given over the years must remain a matter of speculation since every effort is made by the conspirators to keep such matters secret. …
      As World War II ended, the Rockefellers used their foundations to pump millions in the creation and expansion of institutes of international studies at universities which could be depended upon to promote the “right sort” of foreign policy. [mainly Harvard, Yale, Princeton] It is these schools for international studies, their faculties studded with reliable hacks devoted to the Establishment Left, that have provided the State Department with its architects of “perpetual war for perpetual peace.” These schools are used to staff not only the State Department but many U.N. agencies, the C.I.A., and most of the international banks. The movement of the Establishment elite in and out of government is, of course, one big game of musical chairs. The foundations provide a sort of “taxi squad” for Leftists of the party out of office.”
    • In 1935-1937, overlapping with the time of David Rockefeller at LSI, Jomo Kenyatta, the future CIA-backed leader of Kenyatta, was educated at the London School of Economics through sponsorship from the Rockefeller Foundation.
    • 2002, David Rockefeller, ‘Memoirs’, pp. 81-88: “The economists at the LSE were much more conservative than the rest of the faculty. In fact, its economists comprised the major center of opposition in England to s and his Cambridge School of interventionist economics. My tutor that year [1937] was Friedrich von Hayek…. On more than one occasion I remember [Hayek] taking from his wallet a crumpled, dog-eared paper on which he had written a list of remaining “liberal economists.” He would look at it sadly and sigh. He was convinced that the list was shrinking rapidly as the older believers in the free market died off and most of the newer economists followed the new Keynesian fashions. … I never had a chance to discuss [the 1980s market economics] with him to find out if he had made up a new and longer list.
      My favorite teacher at the LSE was Lionel Robbins… [He] was a firm advocate of the market and dedicated opponent of government intervention. But he was much less dogmatic and more eclectic than most of the neoclassical economists I met during this time. … Later, though, Robbins joined the ranks of those favoring an increased role for the state in the management of economic life, calling his earlier disagreement with s “the greatest mistake of my professional career.” … I valued his friendship until his death in 1984.
      After a year in London I was eager to return to the United States to complete my graduate work at the University of Chicago … which boasted … luminaries as Frank Knight, Jacob Viner, George Stigler, Henry Schultz, and Paul Douglas. I had heard Knight lecture at the LSE… Lionel Robbins knew Knight well and urged me to study with him. … When I arrived in Chicago in the fall of 1938, I was able to persuade Professors Knight and Viner to become members of my thesis committee. … Professor Hayek had suggested the idea of economic waste to me in London — but I sought the help of these distinguished economists to help me formulate a more specific proposal. …
      The fact that Grandfather had helped found the university [of Chicago] played a distinctly secondary role in my choice. The Chicago “school of economics” has gained a great deal of fame and not a little notoriety over the past fifty years for its unwavering advocacy of the market and strong support for monetarism. These ideas are intimately associated with Milton Friedman… While Friedman later became an associate of Professors Knight and Viner on the economics faculty, I have no doubt they would have resisted being categorized as members of the Chicago School in the narrow present-day meaning of the term. They both favored the “invisible hand of the market” over government intervention as the best means to sustain economic growth, but I believe they would have objected to Friedman’s cavalier dismissal of corporate social responsibility.”
