Catholics are leaving the Democratic Party

It seems that every day, we are inundated by bad news, including posts published on FOTM.

It gets depressing.

But never fear! I bring you a piece of good news for a refreshing change!

Though U.S. Catholics are not a monolithic voting bloc, their votes are very important because in election after election, Catholics consistently voted the way that the majority in the election voted. In other words, the Catholic vote is a swing vote.

But the term “Catholic Democrats” should be and is an oxymoron. Despite church teachings on the sanctity of (heterosexual) marriage and on abortion being an un-negotiable “intrinsic evil,” too many American Catholics are and vote Democrat. Even worse, they remained Democrats despite their party openly and publicly denying God three times at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

But that is beginning to change. Catholics, especially white Catholics, are leaving the Democratic Party.

Hallelujah!

Armor of God I can do all things through Christ

From California Catholic Daily, March 19, 2015:

It’s one of the central contradictions of American politics: that there’s no such thing as the “Catholic vote,” yet the Catholics vote still matters.

There’s no “Catholic vote” in terms of Catholics representing an electoral bloc that votes according to what their bishops tell them, or in lockstep with the tenets of their religion. Yet winning Catholic voters has been essential to almost every presidential victory in modern times. And the defection of Catholics voters has played a role in some of the most consequential congressional turnovers in recent history — from 1994 to 2014 — making Catholics the ultimate swing voters. And for Democrats, that could be bad news.

While Catholics have been swing voters since Richard Nixon’s second term, white Catholics are now identifying as Republican by historic margins. According to the most recent polling from the Pew Research Center, 53 percent of white Catholics now favor the GOP, versus 39 percent who favor the Democrats—the largest point spread in the history of the Pew poll. And for the first time, white Catholics are more Republican than the voting group usually considered the ultimate Republicans: white Protestants (a designation that includes both mainline and evangelical Protestants).

These are ominous signs for the Democrats, evincing a new and growing allegiance with the Republican Party that has long-term implications.

So why are white Catholics abandoning the Democratic Party? There are some long-term trends at play. Steve Krueger, head of the group Catholic Democrats, notes that conservative bishops have been beating the war drums since the George W. Bush administration, even going so far in some cases as to argue that “good” Catholics can’t vote for Democrats because of their support for abortion rights and, more recently, same-sex marriage — which has resulted in an increased politicization of the church.

Stephen Schneck of Catholic University’s Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies has noted that there’s been a certain “distillation” of the Catholic vote as a record number of presumably more liberal-leaning Catholics — some one-third of those raised Catholic — have left the faith altogether. “More and more of those who remain are those who actively choose to embrace the church and its teachings,” he wrote.

But neither of these trends explains why white Catholics have abandoned the Democratic Party so suddenly and so dramatically. After all, in 2008 Barack Obama managed to keep his margin of loss of white Catholic voters to John McCain to just 5 points. But four years later, he lost the white Catholic vote to Mitt Romney by a stunning 19 points.

Krueger points to the Catholic bishop’s demonization in 2011 of the “contraceptive mandate” in the Affordable Care Act, and their subsequent ginning up of the war on “religious liberty” — which was joined by elements of the religious right and fused with its war on Obamacare — as another factor helping to drive Catholics toward the GOP. And the numbers bear Krueger out. According to Pew, between 2009 and 2014, the number of white Catholics who said the Obama administration — and by inference the Democratic Party — was “unfriendly to religion” more than doubled from 17 percent to 36 percent. 

“The shift in the Catholic vote should really be a wakeup call to the Democrats,” says Krueger. “White Catholics are 18 percent of the electorate and Catholics vote 1 to 2 percentage points above their representation in the overall population. This is a significant voting bloc that now perceives Republicans as being more welcoming to people of faith.”

Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 10

“I often warn people: Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not, but there is an “I” in independence, individuality, and integrity’.” George Carlin Former Senator Jim DeMint was born in South Carolina in1951. He held the office of United States Representative for South Carolina’s 4th congressional district from 1999 to 2005. DeMint pledged to serve only three terms in the House, so rather than leave politics, in 2003 he announced his run for the Senate seat of outgoing Democrat Ernest Hollings in the 2004 election cycle. DeMint resigned from the Senate on January 1, 2013. When Edwin Fuelner recently retired from Heritage Foundation as president, former neo-con Senator Jim DeMint replaced him as president.

Free Trade, Fair Tax, and Privatization

jim demint

Jim DeMint is a proponent of free trade, (more jobs leaving America), and why shouldn’t he be? Remember NAFTA was proposed by Heritage Fellow, and CNP member, Richard Allen. The former Senator is also for the privatization of social security, and the Fair Tax, which would end up raising taxes on all Americans, and leading to a Constitutional Convention, despite what proponents say. Link   Those same proponents state that a Constitutional Convention would be necessary to rid us of the 16th amendment (income tax). However, we didn’t need a Constitutional Convention to rid us of the 18th amendment, we simply had another amendment, the 21st, that nullified the 18th. Nevertheless, even the risk of passing an amendment in today’s climate of communism in America is extremely dangerous to our founding document of 1787.

Eliminating Spousal Benefit of Social Security

DeMint’s Heritage Foundation is also proposing eliminating the spousal benefit of social security. Link In other words, many women choose to take their husband’s social security, rather than their own, because most men make more money in their lifetimes than do women. Rachel Greszler, entitlements policy analyst for the Heritage Foundation, said the spousal benefit for Social Security has become outdated because many women have worked long enough to get their own payments. Greszler said figures showing women make 77 cents for every dollar that men make are faulty. She contended the accurate pay disparity is between five and seven cents. I would beg to differ with her, and I’d like to see where she found her statistics. These are the kind of egregious promotions the Heritage Foundation makes. For baby boomers, this could be a devastating loss of income for surviving widows.

The Balanced Budget Amendment

In the July, 7, 2011 issue of the Wall Street Journal, then Senator Jim DeMint joined with that other bastion of neo-conservative policy, then Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine, to urge a balanced budget amendment (BBA) in an article entitled, The Only Reform That Will Restrain Spending. The title is a total lie. Of course these lawmakers want a BBA! It would legalize their unconstitutional spending. Spending is limited by the “enumerated powers” listed in the Constitution. They don’t address the cause of the problem: Congress spends where they have no constitutional authority to spend. The BBAs don’t eliminate the unconstitutional spending; and they place no limits on the amount of the unconstitutional spending. The Congress will just continue to increase taxes on the American people to “balance” their budget. Bad idea! The BBA leads to the opening of a Constitutional Convention, which would be the final death knell to the Republic. The BBA tactic for a Con-Con has been used since the 70s. See Publius Huldah’s articles on same. Link 

Membership in “The Family”

DeMint is a member of Doug Coe’s secretive “The Fellowship” or “The Family,” which has such members of so-called opposite political stances as DeMint and Hillary Clinton. Link Other members include Heritage’s Edwin Meese, and former Vice President, Al Gore.  Link Again, see Constance Cumbey’s five part article entitled, “The Family, and its hijacking of Evangelicalism.”

Jeff Sharlet wrote an expose on this political and religious group, entitled, The Family. He also had an article in Harper’s Magazine, in February of 2012, about the Family, entitled, Jesus Plus Nothing.

From Sharlet’s website, it states: 

Sharlet follows the story back to Abraham Vereide, an itinerant preacher who in 1935 organized a small group of businessmen sympathetic to European fascism, fusing the far right with his own polite but authoritarian faith. From that core, Vereide built an international network of fundamentalists who speak the language of establishment power, a “family” that thrives to this day. In public, they host the National Prayer Breakfast; in private they preach a gospel of “biblical capitalism,” military might, and American empire. Citing Hitler, Lenin, and Mao as model leaders, the Family’s current leader, Doug Coe, declares, “we work with power where we can, and build new power where we can’t.”

In his book The Family, Sharlet said Fellowship leader Doug Coe preached a leadership model and a personal commitment to Jesus Christ comparable to the blind devotion that Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, and Pol Pot demanded from their followers. In one videotaped lecture series in 1989, Coe said,

“Hitler, Goebbels and Himmler were three men. Think of the immense power these three men had…. But they bound themselves together in an agreement…. Jesus said, ‘You have to put me before other people. And you have to put me before yourself.’ Hitler, that was the demand to be in the Nazi party. You have to put the Nazi party and its objectives ahead of your own life and ahead of other people.”

In the same series, Coe also compared Jesus’ teachings to the Red Guard during the Chinese Cultural Revolution:

“I’ve seen pictures of young men in the Red Guard of China…. They would bring in this young man’s mother and father, lay her on the table with a basket on the end, he would take an axe and cut her head off…. They have to put the purposes of the Red Guard ahead of the mother-father-brother-sister — their own life! That was a covenant. A pledge. That was what Jesus said.”

Networked Organizations of “The Family” 

World Vision International was one of the early organizations in the network of The Family. The Family was started by Abraham Vereide in Seattle in 1935. World Vision was started in California in 1950. The headquarters of World Vision are now in little old Federal Way, just 10-15 miles south of Seattle. Here is World Vision’s 2012-990, with over a trillion dollars in holdings.

According to Amnesty International News, World Vision International has endorsed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. It claims to foster opportunities to help reduce conflict levels and to contribute to the peaceful resolution of hostilities and reconciliation of disputes. They also joined the United Nations peacekeeping efforts to help those affected by civil war. World Vision also started to openly promote the international ban on land mines.

Wilberforce Foundation 2012-990 filings confirm that Wilberforce is related to and shares common management with the Fellowship Foundation.

Traditional Values Coalition uses the C Street Center of The Family for “faith-based diplomacy” in the fight against what TVC’s head, Louis P. Sheldon, calls the “Marxist/Leftist/Homosexual/Islamic coalition.”

CNP member, Sheldon was an associate of fellow CNP member, Jack Abramoff, the Republican lobbyist jailed for influence peddling. Sheldon lobbied members of the US Congress to kill the Internet Gambling Prohibition Act. Abramoff directed his client, e-Lottery, to pay $25,000 to the Traditional Values Coalition.

TVC has also been linked to the Mariana Islands worker abuse scandal. The organization was used by Abramoff to pay for the trip of then-Congressman Bob Schaffer to visit the island. The Denver Post reported that the TVC paid the $13,000 travel bill for the trip, organized by Abramoff’s lobbying firm.

Abramoff’s lobbying team would prepare questions and “factual backup” for friendly lawmakers. Trips to the island for congressmen and staff would be a key tool to “build permanent friends,” the memo said. The congressional junkets to the Mariana Islands were designed to build support in Congress among Republican lawmakers to block labor and immigration legislation for the islands, which had been found to harbor squalid working conditions and abusive labor practices.

The Oak Initiative, founded by hyper charismatic, Rick Joyner of Morningstar Ministries, has a distinctly Dominionist/7 Mountains agenda “to raise up effective leaders for all of the dominant areas of influence in the culture, including: government, business, education, arts and entertainment, family services, media, and the church.” Joyner is heavily into biblical mysticism. Link It also has a Board full of Dominionist Religious Right activists including Janet Porter, Lou Sheldon, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, Cindy Jacobs (head prophetess of the New Apostolic Reformation), Lt.Gen. W.G. “Jerry” Boykin (now VP of CNP member and UN-NGO Tony Perkin’s Family Research Council), and Marc Nuttle.

The Family and Os Hillman

The Family, aka The Fellowship, rent their C Street property where so many key legislators live, from Youth With a Mission, (YWAM). Doug Coe’s sons both work for YWAM. Here is Os Hillman’s Dominionist video that lays out The Plan to “Reclaim the 7 Mountains for the Kingdom of God.” It names Bill Bright of Campus Crusade, Francis Schaeffer of L’Abri in Lausanne, and Loren Cunningham of YWAM as sharing a common supernatural vision that started the movement.  The cross links with Doug Coe’s Family/Fellowship and the CNP are unmistakable. Please note however, that this video is put up by Dominionist, Os Hillman, who helped launch the 7 mountains movement. Link

I’ve been told by researcher and writer, Sarah Leslie, that this story, regarding the vision of Bright and Cunningham, was promulgated by Os Hillman, and that had Bill Bright actually had this vision, everyone at Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC) would have known about it. One of the authors of the following articles exposing this fabricated story actually worked for CCC at the time. See these articles, Seven Apostolic Spheres, Neo-Kuyperian Spheres, and Who Invented Dominionism.

And here is a letter from Dominionist, Os Hillman and guess where he just came from?!

cnp gathering

 

Tuesday, May 20 2014Dear I have just returned from Washington, DC. I attended the Council on National Policy (CNP) meeting, a gathering of 400 of the top national political conservative leaders in America. I was invited by a leader in the organization as a guest. I returned with hope for America by what others are doing that are in the trenches, fighting for America’s values, yet very sober that we are in a critical period in our nation. There are many change agents in this group. I met many in top leadership – congressmen, senators, judicial watchdogs, state representatives, and those in business. Met with president of Focus on the Family (Tom Minnery) on Public Policy, Gary Bauer, Jeff Johnson, CEO National Religious Broadcasters, and many others. Spoke briefly at a 30 person special luncheon for a group called Conservatives of Faith on the topic of using the 7 cultural mountains as a strategy for impacting our nation and the vision of Renewal of America. Bob Williamson (Renewal of America) and I had many strategic meetings sharing our vision to raise up 100 million Christians to pray, unify and stand in the gap for our nation. Some of the speakers at CNP were Newt Gingrich, George Barna, John Fund, National Review Columnist/American Spectator, Mark Levine (conservative radio talk show personality), Thomas Fitton, President, Judicial Watch, Inc and many, many others (this man discovered the latest Bengahzi email that led to special committee being formed). One group we are beginning to work with is the Congressional Prayer Caucus made up of Congressmen who gather to pray in room 219 at the Capitol before every vote. This caucus is being spread to state governments, now 14 established. They are partnering with our Renewal of America initiative assisting with the governmental center of influence board. There were many reports on what is taking place in our nation. The man who discovered the email that shows the whole Bengahzi talking points scandal now traces back to the White House core leadership shared in depth about what is taking place and how the White House is stonewalling the entire discovery process. They have to file lawsuits to get what they want. He told us to expect more things to come. He is also involved in the IRS discovery process and told us to expect more to come from that too. Leadership is optimistic that more conservatives will come into office in the midterms elections. George Barna spoke to us and gave us a snapshot of how the American Dream is radically changing. George Barna, American Culture & Faith Institute 2014 research We are at a pivotal point in American history The American dream was once:

  • Work hard
  • Own a home
  • Fulfill marriage and family life
  • Take advantage of opportunities
  • Practice your faith of choice
  • Balance freedom and responsibility

Today there is a new dream taking place:

  • Work enough to get by
  • Customized family experience
  • Be spiritual but not religious
  • Demand freedom and rights
  • Entitled to personalized moral code
  • Situational truth
  • Advocate the new virtues
  • Happiness: comfort, convenience choices, connections, experiences
  • Unimaginable shift in our values

(This is not what the founding fathers envisioned). He did a survey among conservatives and found their attitudes as follows:

  • 84% concerned about the future
  • 99% country is headed in wrong direction
  • 99% govt is doing too much
  • 90% angry about the state of America
  • 94% morals and values are declining
  • 71% ready to engage in creating significant change

Many of our core foundations are eroding in America because of the most liberal president in the history of this nation. Yet, we know that the buck stops with us and we must ask for God’s mercy on our nation. We are in a process of judgment right now; it remains to be seen the level of judgment we will experience. God gives a nation a leader that mirrors the moral condition of the people. We must engage the body of Christ to pray, humble ourselves and engage in the battle for righteousness in our nation. Thanks for standing in the gap with me for our nation.

God bless you,

Os

A Council for National Policy meeting! So, we have the Dominionists from Doug Coe’s The Family, mixed in with the 7 Mountain Mandate Dominionists, all joining with the entire political neo-con Trotskyite right in the Council for National Policy. And there’s Jim DeMint right in the middle of it.

In Part 11, we’ll look at Heritage’s former Vice Chairman and benefactor, Richard Mellon Scaife.

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz announces presidential campaign, but is he eligible?

This morning, at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), announced his 2016 presidential campaign.

Ted Cruz at Liberty U., March 23, 2015Ted Cruz, joined by wife Heidi and daughters, announces his presidential campaign at Liberty U., March 23, 2015

Ted Cruz was born on December 22, 1970 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada where his parents were working in the oil business as owners of a seismic-data processing firm for oil drillers. Cruz’s parents returned to Houston in 1974. They divorced when Ted was in law school.

While Ted Cruz’s mother, Eleanor, was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware, in a family of three quarters Irish and one quarter Italian descent, Ted’s father, Rafael Bienvenido Cruz, was not a U.S. citizen at the time of Ted’s birth.

Rafael Cruz was born in 1939 in Matanzas, Cuba. He fought for Fidel Castro in the Cuban Revolution when he was 14 years old, but claims he “didn’t know Castro was a Communist.” In 1957, 18-year-old Rafael fled Cuba and landed in Austin, to study at the University of Texas, graduating with a degree in mathematics. In 2005, Rafael became a naturalized U.S. citizen. He is a pastor in Carrollton, a suburb of Dallas, Texas.

Article II, Section 1:5 of the United States Constitution says:

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

So what does “natural born” citizen of the United States mean?

The problem is that the U.S. Constitution does not define the term “natural born citizen” nor is the term found in any existing Federal statute. Although the U.S.-born child of a foreign-citizen parent is a U.S. citizen by modern-day policy, no existing Federal statute declares such a child to be a natural born citizen.

Stephen Tonchen, in his essay “Presidential Eligibility Tutorial,” presents at least three schools of thought on what “natural born citizen” means:

definition #1: “Natural born citizen” is anyone born in the United States

According to a Congressional Research Service memorandum (April 3, 2009), the weight of legal opinion is that anyone born in the United States, except the child of a foreign diplomat, is a natural born citizen:

The weight of scholarly legal and historical opinion appears to support the notion that “natural born Citizen” means one who is entitled under the Constitution or laws of the United States to U.S. citizenship “at birth” or “by birth,” including any child born “in” the United States (other than to foreign diplomats serving their country) … [Maskell (2009), p.5]

But the Heritage Foundation points out that “prior to 2009, the U.S. State Department [had] . . . seeds of doubt regarding the legal status, at birth, of children born in the United States, of alien parents who are in the United States temporarily or illegally.”

Definition #2: “Natural born citizen” also means a foreign-born child of U.S.-citizen parents

In 1790, Congress passed the Naturalization Act of 1790, which said:

And the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond the sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens.

But James Madison, in 1795, expressed concern that someone might erroneously infer from the 1790 Act that the foreign-born children of American parents actually “are” (not merely “considered as”) natural born citizens.

Sen. John McCain was born on August 29, 1936, at Coco Solo Naval Air Station in the Panama Canal Zone, to two U.S. citizens, naval officer John S. McCain Jr. and Roberta (Wright) McCain. At that time, the Panama Canal was under U.S. control. In 2008, the U.S. Senate passed Resolution 511 regarding presidential candidate John McCain’s natural born citizenship, but the resolution was nonbinding and had no legal effect.

definition #3: A foreign-born child of a non-U.S. citizen parent cannot be a “natural born citizen”

Then there is the question of whether both the mother and father must be U.S. citizens for their foreign-born child to be considered a “natural born” U.S. citizen:

  • According to federal case law prior to 1898, U.S. citizenship at birth was based on the principle of partus sequitur patrem or offspring follows the status of the father.
  • The Supreme Court in Inglis v. Trustees (1830) and Elk v. Wilkins (1884) ruled that a child born on U.S. soil, of a father who owes allegiance to a sovereignty other than the United States, is not a U.S. citizen at birth; and that the citizenship of such a child is that of its father, not its place of birth. Consequently, the U.S.-born child of a foreign-citizen father cannot be a natural born citizen.

In 2004, Senate Bill S.2128: Natural Born Citizen Act gave a definition of “natural born citizen”, but it never became law. As of today, there is no Federal statute that explicitly defines who is, and who is not, a natural born citizen. Even if there were such a statute, it would most likely be unconstitutional because Congress does not have the authority to change the meaning of the Constitution by passing a law that redefines a term that the Constitution uses. Only the Supreme Court has the constitutional authority to interpret the Constitution, but the Supreme Court has to date refused to specify what “natural born” in Article II of the U.S. Constitution means. Alternatively, a definition of “natural born citizen” can be supplied via a Constitutional Amendment.

Ted Cruz may be considered a “natural born” U.S. citizen according to Definition #2 only if #2 refers to a foreign-born child who has at least one parent who is a U.S. citizen at the time of the child’s birth.

Ted Cruz is definitely not a “natural born” U.S. citizen under either Definition #1 or Definition #3.

 

Ted Cruz graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1995, so he knows full well the above. And yet it was only after the Dallas Morning News, in August 2013, pointed out that Cruz had dual Canadian-American citizenship that he applied to formally renounce his Canadian citizenship. On May 14, 2014, Cruz ceased being a citizen of Canada.

Now you know why the GOP never contested Barack Obama’s suspect “natural born” citizenship — he who supposedly was born in Honolulu, Hawaii (but document forensics experts say his Hawaii birth certificate is fraudulent) of a U.S. citizen mother but a Kenyan father who was then a subject of Great Britain because Kenya was then a British colony.

Texas attorney general: U.S. is heading toward a constitutional crisis because of Obama flouting Congress and courts

Ken Paxton

In an interview on Fox News yesterday, Ken Paxton, the attorney general of the State of Texas, was asked whether America is heading toward “a constitutional crisis” because of Obama’s total disregard for Congress and now the courts. (The segment begins at the 2:55 mark in the Fox News video, here.)

Paxton replied:

“I think we are. If you think about what’s going on here — the President is violating federal law, the U.S. Constitution, which is going past what Congress is supposed to be doing, and now we’ve got the administration in court not being forthcoming about they’re supposed to be forthcoming about. We definitely have a huge issue here related to whether the Obama administration is going to follow the Constitution, and then once they get into court, whether they’re going to tell the truth.”

Paxton’s stunning remark was precipitated by Obama’s latest “F-you” to the court, specifically to Andrew Hanen, the federal judge who is single-handedly doing the job of the useless Congress by standing up to Obama’s reckless amnesty.

Judge Andrew Hanen

Judge Andrew Hanen

On Feb. 16, 2015, U.S. District Judge Hanen issued a preliminary injunction to temporarily block Obama’s amnesty so as to give a coalition of 26 states the time they need to pursue a lawsuit to permanently stop the amnesty orders. If the implementation of Obama’s amnesty were not blocked, Hanen reasons, the 26 states will “suffer irreparable harm in this case” because once the millions of illegals obtain amnesty, “the genie would be impossible to put back into the bottle.” (See “Federal judge stops Obama’s executive amnesty for illegals”)

At issue are two executive memoranda signed by Obama last November:

  1. The first memorandum expands eligibility for Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which halts deportations and allows work permits for certain undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children.
  2. The second executive memo, known as DAPA, would extend similar benefits to the parents of U.S. citizens and permanent legal residents.

See also “Obama has issued more executive orders than any U.S. president in history.

Combined, DACA and DAPA could affect as many as 5 million immigrants living in the country illegally. Some estimates are as high as 10 to 12 million illegals.

4 days after Judge Hanen’s order blocking the implementation of Obama’s amnesty, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced it would seek an emergency stay of the judge‘s injunction. (See “Obama emergency order to restart amnesty in defiance of federal judge Hanen”)

Hanen responded by denying the DOJ’s request. So the federal government has asked the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans to lift Hanen’s injunction while the case is appealed.

Obama vs. Hanen

 

The latest tussle between Judge Hanen and Obama took place last Thursday, March 19, 2015.

As reported by FoxNews, at a Texas hearing on Obama’s amnesty executive actions, Judge Hanen sharply scolded a DOJ attorney — that the administration had misled Hanen on a key part of the program, for which Hanen fell “like an idiot.” Hanen said he could order sanctions against the administration if he finds the DOJ indeed had misrepresented the facts.

At issue is whether the DOJ had misled the judge into believing that a plank of the Obama amnesty program would not go forward before he made the Feb. 16 ruling to temporarily halt it. The program is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that gives deportation reprieves (i.e., effective amnesty) to thousands of young illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as “minors.” The problem is that even before Hanen’s ruling on Feb. 16 to block DACA’s implementation, federal officials had already given 3-year reprieves and work permits to more than 108,000 illegal aliens.

Kathleen Hartnett Associate White House Counsel Kathleen Hartnett, a Harvard Law grad like Obama, successfully worked on repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

At the Thursday hearing, Hanen chided DOJ attorney Kathleen Hartnett for telling him at a January hearing before the Feb. 16 injunction was issued that nothing would be happening with regard to DACA until Feb. 18.

“Like an idiot I believed that,” Hanen said.

A flustered Hartnett repeatedly apologized to Hanen for any confusion related to how the reprieves and work permits were granted. “We strive to be as candid as possible. It truly became clear to us there was confusion on this point,” she said.

“Can I trust what the president says? That’s a yes or no question,” Hanen asked.

“Yes your honor,” Hartnett replied.

The coalition of 26 states have asked that Hanen consider issuing sanctions against the Obama administration because, in the words of the coalition’s lead attorney Angela Colmenero (who is also a lawyer with the Texas Attorney General’s Office), DOJ attorneys had made “representations (that) proved not to be true or at a minimum less than forthcoming.”

Obama’s DOJ lawyer Hartnett insists “There is absolutely no basis for sanctions here. The government is absolutely trying to do the right thing.”

Hanen said he would issue a ruling “promptly” on what action, if any, he will take against the Justice Department.

Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 9

“Can we regain our country and our freedom? The answer is, only if we can bear the truth that our forefathers knew and took for granted. If the generation of 100 years ago could come back today they would be appalled at the thinking of Americans today. They would think, surely we have been occupied by a foreign power. They would be right. We have been occupied, but not by a military power. We have succumbed to a long period of ‘public education’ and ‘freedom of religion’ which has turned Americans into zombies incapable of rational thought and choice. Even worse, we are traitors to our country and to ourselves.” The Don Bell Report

 Heritage Foundation and Edwin Feulner 

CNP charter member Ed Feulner took over the Heritage Foundation leadership with a nomination from Richard Mellon Scaife, who sits on the board as Vice Chairman. Dr. Feulner served as President of Heritage from 1977 to 2013. He was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up in Elmhurst. After receiving an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business in 1964, he attended the Jesuit founded, Georgetown University and the London School of Economics, where he was a Richard M. Weaver Fellow. (Weaver was allegedly a member of the Fabian Socialist Americans for Democratic Action. However, unlike today’s neo-conservatives, he valued personal property rights to the point of agrarianism, yet believed in a form of communitarianism.) Feulner then earned a doctorate at the University of Edinburgh.

Let’s take a look at Feulner’s early education to see what kind of ideas may have been formed in his youth. The London School of Economics dates from 1895, when the School was founded by Fabian Socialist Society members Sidney and Beatrice Webb, Graham Wallas, and George Bernard Shaw, (a devout supporter of Joseph Stalin), with funding provided by private philanthropy, including a bequest of £20,000 from Henry Hunt Hutchinson to the Fabian Society, whose wife was a Fabian member.

Co-founder of the London School of Economics, Sidney Webb, was a British socialist, economist, and reformer. He was one of the early members of the Fabian Society in 1884, along with fellow communist, George Bernard Shaw (they joined three months after its inception). With his wife, Beatrice Webb, and fellow socialists, Annie Besant, Graham Wallas, Edward R. Pease, Hubert Bland, and Sydney Olivier, Shaw and Webb turned the Fabian Society into the pre-eminent political-intellectual society of England in the Edwardian era and beyond.

Of special interest is occult leader, Annie Besant who was a leading speaker for the Fabian Society and the Marxist Social Democratic Federation (SDF). In 1890, Besant met Helena Blavatsky, and over the next few years her interest in theosophy grew while her interest in secular matters waned. She became a member of the Theosophical Society and a prominent lecturer on the subject. In 1907 she became president of the Theosophical Society.

This is the educational background Feulner came from prior to going to Washington DC and into the neo-conservative politics of the right. Gives a bit diferent perspective on the man, doesn’t it?

Feulner began his Washington career as analyst for the Center for Strategic and International Studies, then called the Center for Strategic Studies. He later became a congressional aide to congressman (and later Secretary of Defense) Melvin Laird. Feulner subsequently became a long-serving executive assistant to Illinois Republican congressman Phil Crane. (I remember Crane well, so many conservatives were backing him and promoting him, yet the “false friends” had already targeted and partially neutralized him). Prior to becoming the President of the Heritage Foundation, Feulner was the Executive Director of the Republican Study Committee.

Let’s take a look at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) so as to understand how the left and right work together, and the training Feulner received from them. The center hosts the Statesmen’s Forum, a bipartisan venue for international leaders to present their views. Past speakers have included UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and National Security Advisor Tom Donilon.

The CSIS Chairman of the Board of Trustees is Sam Nunn, a former Democratic Senator from Georgia and longtime chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services. Former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense John J. Hamre has been the president and chief executive officer of CSIS since April 2000.

The board of trustees includes many former senior government officials including Soviet agent, Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, William Cohen, George Argyros and Brent Scowcroft. The board also includes major corporate business leaders as well as prominent figures in the fields of finance, private equity, real estate, academia and media.

CSIS has broadened its reach into public policy analysis under the leadership of Hamre and Nunn. The Department of Defense, as part of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, that’s NDAA folks, commissioned CSIS to conduct an independent assessment of U.S. interests in the Asia-Pacific Region. Also, in May 2009, President Barack Obama thanked the CSIS bipartisan Commission on Cyber security for its help in developing the Obama administration‘s policies on cyber warfare. The center has also been highly influential in the creation of the White House’s foreign policy. The first professional staff member hired was Richard V. Allen who later served in the Reagan administration. Allen was a Heritage fellow when he helped draft NAFTA and promote it through Heritage Foundation. The big goodbye to American jobs!

In 2012, CSIS hosted U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she delivered a keynote address on “U.S. Strategic Engagement with North Africa in an Era of Change,” that addressed the security of embassies in the wake of the 2012 Benghazi attack.

There was also a strong connection between Heritage and the Rev. Sun Myung Moon (founder of the “Moonies” as well as of the Washington Times). This first appeared in a 1975 congressional investigation on the Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA) activities in the US. The report noted, “In 1975, Ed Feulner was introduced to KCIA station chief Kim Yung.” Salonen was head of Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church in the United States. The Freedom Leadership Foundation (FLF), a political arm of Moon’s Unification network, was linked to the World Anti-Communist League. Here is a short list of the Unification Church’s front groups, (note the UN-nongovernmental organization list). In the early 1980s, the KCIA began making donations to Heritage Foundation. In turn, Heritage established an Asian Studies Center.

Feulner was treasurer of the Mont Pelerin Society, an international organization of economists whose members included Henry Hazlitt (author of “A New Constitution Now”), and William F. Buckley, CFR, CIA, and Skull and Bonesman. (Do yourselves a favor and purchase John McManus’s book, William F.Buckley, Pied Piper for the Establishment.) Hazlitt’s book is extremely dangerous inasmuch as Hazlitt states things like, “an amendment could be proposed that would strike out everything after “We the people,” and that, of course, includes the Bill of Rights. He was suggesting that everything after “We the people” on down be scrapped and rewritten, which is amazing, as this document has provided more human dignity and freedom for more people than any other in recorded history. He also stated, “When I wrote A New Constitution Now I was sure, as I still am, that parliamentary government tends to be a better form of government than our own presidential system.” He and Paul Weyrich would agree. We would likely end up with this proposed Constitution for the New States of America.

Here is a list of the prominent Mont Pelerin Society members. Other prominent MPS members who advanced to policy positions included the late Chancellor Ludwig Erhard of West Germany, President Luigi Einaudi of Italy, Chairman Arthur F. Burns of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board and U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz.

Edwin Feulner is also a member of the Board of the NWO promoting National Chamber Foundation. Link He is a longtime officer and director of three grant-making foundations: the Sarah Scaife Foundation (Richard Mellon Scaife’s Foundation), the Aequus Institute (headed by Larry Arnn of Hillsdale College who is promoting charters/vouchers/choice, and is on the board of Heritage Foundation) and the Thomas A. Roe Foundation, charter member of the CNP, as well as Heritage Foundation, Mont Pelerin Society, etc.

Feulner is the former President of the Philadelphia Society, and past Director of the Sequoia Bank, the Council for National Policy, the Acton Institute, the International Republican Institute (which has been chaired by John McCain), the American Council in Germany, the Lehrman Institute and George Mason University.

He served as a member of the Gingrich-Mitchell Congressional U.N. Reform Task Force (2005) and on the Congressional Commission on International Financial Institutions (“Meltzer Commission“) from 1999-2000. Here is a list of those who served on the U.N. Reform Task Force. Newt Gingrich has been a Heidi and Alvin Toffler Third Waver since the 70s. He believes the Constitution is outdated and there should be no private property rights. Link

Edwin Feulner was the Vice Chairman of the National Commission on Economic Growth and Tax Reform (“Kemp Commission”) from 1995-1996. He also was Chairman of the bipartisan U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy (1982-91), served as the Public Member (Ambassador) of the U.S. Delegation to the United Nations Second Special Session on Disarmament in New York, and a consultant for domestic policy to President Reagan, and an adviser to several government departments and agencies.

The United Nations Office of Disarmament Affairs comprises several administrative offices and five branches: Conference on Disarmament Secretariat and Conference Support Branch(Geneva), Weapons of Mass Destruction Branch (WMD), Conventional Arms (including Practical Disarmament) Branch (CAB), Regional Disarmament Branch (RDB) and Information and Outreach Branch (IOB). RDB further manages three regional centers.

Edwin J. Feulner had a yearly income, including deferred compensation, of $1,098,612. Here is the 2012-990 for Heritage Foundation. The $25 dollars per month, which Heritage collects from grassroots members, goes to funding the salaries of their President and other notable members like Edwin Meese, the latter who collects half a million per year.

When Feulner recently retired, former neo-con Senator Jim DeMint replaced him as president. In Part 10, we’ll look at the new President of Heritage and the CNP’s propensity for Dominionists within their membership.

ATF Drops Proposed Ammo Ban; Agency’s Very Existence Threatened

by  for The New American Magazine

The groundswell of public and congressional opposition against the ATF’s proposed ban on 5.56 M855 rifle ammunition was so swift and strong that the agency announced on Tuesday that it was backing down. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was not only bombarded with more than 80,000 negative responses to its latest anti-Second Amendment maneuver, but it also was blasted in Congress, where 238 House members and 52 senators signed letters opposing the ammo ban. Not only that, but legislation has been introduced to abolish the agency.

ban

One of those signing the letter of opposition in the House — the one circulated by Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) — was none other than the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, Representative John Culberson (R-Texas). Culberson is a Tea Party favorite and no friend of the ATF, and his committee has jurisdiction over funding for the ATF.

Goodlatte was pleased that the ATF backed down:

After much pressure from a large, bipartisan majority in the House of Representatives, I am pleased that the Obama Administration has abandoned its attack on the Second Amendment.

“Abandoned” is far too generous a word to use to describe the ATF’s temporary backing away from what is becoming a “third rail” in American politics. “Temporary halt to continuing aggressive hostilities” might better describe the ATF’s decision to put consideration of its ban on 5.56 M855 ammunition used in the popular AR-15 rifle on hold until the clamor dies down.

The ATF has allowed itself plenty of wiggle room in declaring that it will consider various “issues” raised by complainants before moving ahead with a new “framework” to eliminate the manufacture, importation and sale of the ammunition.

In the meantime, lawmakers have been busy drafting and offering legislation designed to remove from the ATF its authority to ban rifle ammunition, or to disband the agency altogether. Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) announced in late February his “Protecting Second Amendment Rights Act” that would prohibit the ATF, or any other federal agency, from issuing or enforcing any new restrictions or prohibitions of rifle ammunition. Said Rooney at the time:

The Obama Administration’s proposal would unilaterally strip law-abiding hunters and sportsmen of their Second Amendment Rights. Congress has made its intentions clear: this ammunition is for sporting purposes and should not be restricted.

A few days later Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) offered his bill to foramally end the agency and transfer its present responsibilities either to the FBI or the DEA. Calling the ATF “largely duplicative” and “an affront to the Second Amendment”, Sensenbrenner’s bill would require ATF Director Todd Jones to be the funeral director of his own wake, submitting a plan within 180 days to wind down the agency altogether.

Those “affronts” reach far back into the history of the ATF. Most are acutely aware of the Operation Fast and Furious scandal that was designed to impugn the credibility and integrity of gun store owners along the nation’s southern border by allowing illegal weapons to be shipped to Mexican drug cartels. The plan blew up when the plot was discovered after the death of a border agent at the hands of a cartel member using a weapon enabled by the ATF. It also resulted in the first attorney general in U.S. history (Eric Holder) to be held in contempt by the Congress during the subsequent investigation..

Fewer remember the deadly confrontation that took place in northern Idaho in 1992 between Randy Weaver and the ATF resulting in the shooting death of Weaver’s wife by an ATF sniper.

This was followed a year later by the Waco Siege by agents of the ATF of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, which resulted in the killing of 76 people inside the compound when it was set on fire.

There are many who hold that neither bills offered by Rooney or Sensenbrenner go far enough. Though the Sensenbrenner bill would abolish the agengy itself, it would not, as indicated above, abolish its functions. This is an agency that needs to have not only its facade but its unconstitutional functions excised out of Washington like a cancer. As Peter Pan sang:

Never smile at a crocodile

No, you can’t get friendly with a crocodile

Don’t be taken in by his welcome grin

He’s imagining how well you’d fit within his skin

Never smile at a crocodile

Never tip your hat and stop to talk awhile

Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day

Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile

Yes this agency needs to be banned, along with dozens of other unconstitutional federal departments and agencies.

Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 3

If there is to be any future for America as an independent nation, somebody must tell the truth. That truth is painful to most Americans who have been silently reeducated over the last one hundred years. The Don Bell Report

As I mentioned in Part 2, the Council for National Policy (CNP) still has Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) members on their membership lists today. It is populated by neo-con Trotskyites and corporate fascists, along with Dominionists/Reconstructionists, and cultists. There was a long and planned process of destroying old right Constitutional conservatism which has unfortunately succeeded. Here’s what happened:

Forty or fifty years ago or more, those who have become leaders in today’s Republican party drifted away from Trotskyism and began to identify themselves as democratic socialists. Still later, under the guise of neo-conservatives, Irving Kristol and William F. Buckley, who emasculated true old right conservatism, slithered into the Republican party as “moderates.” They stole the name of “conservative” and seized intellectual control of the true conservatives, as well as the entire Republican party. I strongly suggest the purchase of John McManus’s well documented and referenced book, William F. Buckley, Pied Piper for the Establishment. Buckley was CFR, CIA agent, Skull and Bonesman from Yale, as well as an invited guest to Bilderberger conferences. Link

We must not ignore Leon Trotsky. Trotsky, unlike Stalin and Lenin, favored the slow and patient imposition of Marxist socialism without murders and gulags, yet he had no problem murdering three million Russians. Trotsky wished for the people to “choose” Marxism, rather than having it forced upon them. Irving Kristol, father of Bilderberger, Bill Kristol, stated, “I regard myself as lucky to have been a young Trotskyite and I have not a single bitter memory.”

Dominionists/Reconstructionists desire a Christian theocracy to head the country, a return to old testament laws, (punishment for sin, i.e. stoning in the street for homosexuals, adulterers, etc.) and they believe Christ will not return until they have theocratized the world. Here is a more thorough definition.

As for cults, the main influence in the CNP was none other than Sun Myung Moon through the front group, American Freedom Coalition, headed by Dr. Robert Grant. The Church of Scientology is also a member of American Legislative Exchange Council. Link

In the late 70s, the view on the Right was that an organization such as the Council for National Policy was needed. It stemmed from their perception that the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) – closely identified with the Rockefeller family – was selling out American interests in the pursuit of a “left-wing foreign policy agenda.” This is true, however, these right wing groups, under the CNP umbrella, have been extremely helpful in promoting the exact same agenda. Go back and reread the statement in Tragedy and Hope by Carroll Quigley in Part 1 of this series, and remember that statement is from 1966.

All the organizations within the CNP sent us fund raising letters promising to stop the abortion agenda, the homosexual agenda, the anti-gunners and everything else. They are tied to the Heritage Foundation in promoting great sounding rightwing principles, which failed to tell the core and truth of the Republic’s destruction. The grassroots people trusted these alleged Christian patriots, and sent them millions and millions of dollars. These groups all became wealthy, and grew exponentially. The grassroots middle class Christians and patriots became poor. Nothing changed. It is even worse today after 30 years of funding these groups.

The majority of these various groups claimed to be Christians, yet had a self righteous attitude towards those who had abortions or were homosexuals. Needless to say, their rhetoric didn’t win any converts, and why should it? They were busy pointing fingers and screaming “Sinner!” The love of Christ was not in their hearts or in their treatment of their fellow man.

So now, let’s take a look at two of the four top movers and shakers who founded the CNP. Please note this is just skimming the surface of their involvements.

Nelson Bunker Hunt

hunt

Hunt was a Texas Oil Man and silver manipulator and financial provider for fellow CNP member, Bill Bright’s Campus Crusade for Christ. He lost his fortune in the silver market, but has since regained it. Link Bunker also provided Wycliffe Bible Translators property in TX for a new international translation center.   Thy Will Be Done, by Colby and Dennett, documents the connections between Wycliffe Bible Translators, the Rockefeller family, and the CIA who carried out the genocide of indigenous tribes in the Amazon basin. As well, he funded CNP member Ed McAteer, “the Colgate-Palmolive salesman who was the organizing force behind the politicized Fundamentalist movement”…and who had the McAteer Roundtable years ago where these CNP members met to decide policy. McAteer was also on the Wycliffe Bible Translation board. Colby and Dennett also describe the vital role of Ed McAteer in bringing together wealthy liberal and conservative patrons to fund and direct the Wycliffe organization which, in the name of Christ, was assisting Nelson Rockefeller in the conquest of Latin America. Link Ed McAteer was also instrumental in the founding of CNP member, Jerry Falwell’s Moral Majority.

In 1951, Bunker Hunt and Wallace Johnson, founder of Holiday Inns, worked with and funded Bill Bright’s Campus Crusade for Christ donating $15.5 million. In 1967, Hunt formed the Christian World Liberation Front (CWLF) as a covert front for Campus Crusade, which split off and became a leading ministry in the Jesus People movement. He once organized a paramilitary force called “Americans Volunteer Group” which he intended to use as a “death squad” against political opponents. [Ominous Politics, Saloma 53; Roads to Dominion, Diamond 51-56, 250]  Hunt died in 2014.

Recently, Wycliffe’s effort was to complete a new translation which eliminated both Father and Son from the Bible in order to be more appealing to Muslims. The outcry of the public apparently stopped this.

Pat Robertson

pat robertson

Robertson is a Southern Baptist and was active as an ordained minister with that denomination for many years, but holds to a charismatic theology not traditionally common among Southern Baptists. Pat holds a law degree from Yale, having turned to the ministry after he failed to pass the bar in New York State.

He is the founder of Christian Broadcasting Network, and stated in his book, Shout it From the Housetops, that he was led to Christ by Dutch Missionary Cornelius Vanderbreggen.

Vanderbreggen was present at the 1987 National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention and according to new age expert and attorney, Constance Cumbey, author of Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, Vanderbreggen was at the booth for Willis Carto‘s Liberty Lobby, the former publisher of the Spotlight Magazine. Vanderbreggen was actually doing seminars for Liberty Lobby about Israel and the Bible. Carto is also the co-founder of the Institute for Historical Review, considered the leader in Holocaust denial groups. Critics claim, and rightly so, that Carto and his organizations are anti-Semitic.

Connie was at the 1987 National Religious Broadcasters‘ Convention, where she saw Vanderbreggen at the Liberty Lobby booth. She immediately remembered reading Robertson’s book, and that Vanderbreggen was mentioned as having led Robertson to Christ. Vanderbreggen was sent to talk to Connie and dissuade her of the belief that the Institute for Historical Review was a holocaust denial group. Anyone that knows Constance Cumbey knows she documents everything and has a memory like a steel trap. Present with Connie, and witness to all this was none other than Joseph Carr, author of The Twisted Cross: The Occultic Religion of Hitler and the New Age Nazism of the Third Reich. I asked Connie if she thought Vanderbreggen was a dominionist because Robertson so often featured the leading Council for National Policy dominionists on his Christian Broadcasting Network program. She said she thought of him as more of a Nazi. Read Connie’s 5 part article at NWVs, entitled, The Family” and It’s Hijacking of Evangelicalism.

Pat also was the founder of Christian Coalition, headed by fellow CNP member, Ralph Reed, who was later disgraced for his involvement with another CNP member, Jack Abramoff. Jack was D.C. lobbyist, who went to prison for the Indian lobbying scandal. Christian Coalition was famous for their voter guides, but there are countless incidents where lies or omissions were told about true Constitutional conservatives in order to elect the moderates or neo-conservatives instead.

In 1997, Robertson also sold his Family Channel for 1.9 billion to CFR member, Rupert Murdoch, which renamed it Fox Family. A condition of the sale was that the station would continue airing Robertson’s television program, The 700 Club, twice a day in perpetuity, regardless of any changes of ownership. The channel is now owned by Disney and run as “ABC Family.” Robertson worked for two years as financial analyst and management trainee at W.R. Grace Co., which employed émigré Nazis after WWII. Robertson was also godfather of the child of company president J. Peter Grace, who, as I stated in Part 2, was head of the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta in the United States, and a key figure in the CIA’s Operation Paperclip to remove classified information from dossiers on Nazi war criminals. Grace was CFR as well as CNP on the initial membership roster, and was also on the board of CNP member, Willard Garvey’s International Conference on Privatizing Education. In 1984, between the establishment of Garvey’s National Center for Privatization and Reagan’s executive order to permanently establish low fees for public land grazing, Willard Garvey wrote a letter to President Reagan, dated April 6, 1984, which stated, in part, “Privatization is now an idea whose time has come.’ The knowledge, communication, and computer industry can make political representatives obsolete!” Link  This letter also included a brochure for the Heritage Foundation.

In 2008, Pat rushed to endorse pro-abort, pro homosexual, anti-gunner, Rudi Guilliani, and in 2012, endorsed Willard Mitt Romney.

In Part 4, we’ll look at Tim LaHaye and T. Cullen Davis as well as other powerful people within the Council for National Policy.
