I wondered how long it would be before the tea parties and grass roots’ efforts were infiltrated. It didn’t even take a year. By now all of you know about the Tea Party convention in Nashville,TN last month at the Grand Ole’ Opry Hotel. Tennessee’s own Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn backed out, as did Minnesota’s Michelle Bachmann along with the American Liberty Alliance and National Precinct Alliance. Why? Because when word of profiteering by Nashville attorney Judson Phillips hit the news, and he decided to form a FOR PROFIT organization rather than a grassroots non-profit event, the rest of the speakers backed out. Left holding the bag was their lone top guest Sarah Palin. Ticket prices were $550 and the leftover ones were sold at the last minute for $350. Needless to say, that in itself eliminated most grassroots patriots and left the event to those with money.
CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) is headed by none other than long time secretive Council for National Policy (CNP) member, Grover Norquist, whose Americans for Tax Reform is a major sponsor of the Tea Party launch event, and Tea Party Patriots’ manifesto. Tea party patriots would run away from Norquist if they truly abhor anti-Semitism, anti-Israel activism, and Muslim extremism. But they aren’t running the other way. Even key Tea Party leaders, organizers, and activists in every state, whom he’s traveled to meet and who also embrace him and are asking him for guidance. Norquist is founder and board member of the Islamic Institute (which operated out of his offices for ATR), was on the take from Gulf state emirates and laundered money for his Council for National Policy buddy Jack Abramoff. He employed Khalid Saffuri, an admitted funder of “the martyrs”–he adopted HAMAS homicide bombers’ families and funded them. And he and Islamic Institute accepted cash from several “charities” which laundered money for the Saudi government to Al-Qaeda. Norquist married a Muslim woman in 2005 and has since converted. His involvement is anathema to the tea party grassroots movement, and he is an obvious infiltrator and “controlled” opposition. Norquist has his fingers in many pies, but we’ll discuss his other involvements in another article.
Many tea party patriots believe in the 10th Amendment Center efforts. Unfortunately, few realize that a state RESOLUTION is non-binding and is basically only a suggestion. Unfortunately the 10th Amendment Center is run by Judge Andrew Napolitano, Judge Roy Moore, and Ray McBerry. Justice Roy Moore speaks across the United States and is funded by the secretive Council for National Policy members. Judge Andrew Napolitano, long time Fox News commentator and guest host for Glenn Beck, is strongly pushing a constitutional convention to rid us of the 16th amendment and his 10th Amendment Center even wants to get rid of the 17th amendment. I’m all for that, but we don’t need to take down the entire constitution to rid ourselves of amendments. The 18th amendment (prohibition of liquor) was repealed by the 21st amendment without a constitutional convention. Please see my article WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING? For even more information on the constitutional convention plans click here.
Even in the small tea party group in Knoxville, TN, a man named Doug McCormick is pushing for a constitutional convention by telling his people that the federal government can be controlled by having a con-con. He has been told and warned of what can happen should 34 states agree to call a convention, and claims our warnings, including those of Chief Justice Warren Burger and James Madison are purely “scare tactics.” When a constitutional convention was suggested just one year after the adoption of our constitution, James Madison said, “Having witnessed the difficulties and dangers experienced by the first Convention, I would tremble for the result of the second.” Once the constitution is taken down for a con-con, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to hold it to one subject as the proponents tell us. Imagine this happening today without the type of great statesmen our founders were!
In a recent article on Council for National Policy Joseph Farah’s WorldNetDaily, he featured his fellow CNP member, Richard Viguerie selling his LEADERSHIP TEA PARTY CLASSES. He says he will make YOUR TEA PARTY MORE SUCCESSFUL, PROSPEROUS, AND LEGALLY SECURE. Unfortunately, several of the original tea party organizers are involved, including Michael Patrick Leahy, who is featured quite often with Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox News especially when he’s substituting for Glenn Beck, and both Napolitano and Leahy are calling for a constitutional convention. Beware of this because as I wrote in the above News With Views article, another constitution has been written and is waiting in the wings and there will be NO unalienable rights, but only privileges granted by the federal government. As for Richard Viguerie, he is a charter member of the secretive CNP and did direct-mail fundraising for now deceased fellow CNP member Paul Weyrich’s Free Congress Foundation (Weyrich wrote in the 80s that we needed an elite shadow government running the country) as well as being a candidate in the 1976 presidential nomination of the neo-fascist, Klan infested American Independent Party of George Wallace. In 1986, Viguerie was rescued from near bankruptcy with an account for distribution of the Unification Church owned INSIGHT magazine. In 1987, Bo Hi Pak, a former Korean military intelligence officer and Moon’s top U.S. operative, paid $10.06 million for Viguerie’s office building.
Also, in 1987, Viguerie became Secretary, strategist and fund-raising genius of the newly created Moon-controlled and funded American Freedom Coalition (a CNP organization). Viguerie serves on the board of the Moonie dominated American Freedom Coalition which is one of his biggest direct mail clients. Viguerie’s company is a major nexus for conservative organizational activity via direct mail and he’s worked for many of his fellow CNP members.
Here’s what fellow CNP member Alan Gottlieb of Citizens’ Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said in his 1993 book about how to get people to donate via direct mail fundraising. In Trashing the Economy, the 1993 book he and his co-author, CDFE Vice President Ron Arnold writes with startling frankness that:
"The message of the direct mail letter must appeal to three base emotions; Fear, Hate and Revenge...
"[The] fund raising mailer must present you with a crisis -- a problem won't do...That crisis must frighten you...If you are not frightened, you won't send money...
"Then the direct mail letter must present you with a bogeyman against whom to focus your anger...
"Once you've been frightened and made to hate the bogeyman, the successful direct mail appeal must offer you a way to get revenge against the bogeyman -- the payoff for your contribution. The more soul-satisfying the revenge, the better the letter pulls.
"All this must be dressed up in an appeal that appears to have a high moral tone, but which -- without you realizing it -- works on your lower emotions."
Gottlieb and Arnold are describing environmental direct-mail pitches but Arnold in an interview on Center for the Defense of Free Enterprise, also told us that "in direct mail, fear, hate and revenge go a long way."
The letters he composes are not long on subtlety or literary polish, but they are extremely adept at pinpointing the recipients' deepest anxieties and eliciting floods of righteous indignation.
Needless to say, Richard Viguerie is certainly not the person I’d choose to have anything to do with grassroots patriots and the tea parties.
What to do, what to do….Well, right now there’s only two things we can do. First we have to hound our legislators every day with e-mails, faxes and phone calls. I’ve written my RINO senators so many times that Lamar Alexander now sends me threatening e-mails stating that he’ll have “homeland security” get back to me with an answer regarding why we’re eliminating half of our border agents. Secondly, with the upcoming November elections, we must certainly search every single candidate in the primaries and back the constitutionalists over the RINOs. Once again, I’ve seen RINOs win where they shouldn’t; Perry over Medina is a prime example. But there are some great ones out there. I’d suggest everyone do their homework on who is running nationwide and help the good ones. I am impressed with Earl Sholley who is running against Barney Frank, and Tarkanian who is running against Reid, and DeVore who is running against Boxer…Allen West who is running in Florida against Ron Klein, and countless others. Without our help some of them have little to no chance.
We must be discerning and forget joining groups that will eventually be just like what we’re trying to eliminate in the congress. Unfortunately I’ve only scratched the surface on the many groups who are already infiltrated or who are leading their folks down the road to destruction by sending them to the same old RINOs who have the same agenda as the Democrats. Please, please, do research before you vote in your state primaries.
Finally, we must remember what Clinton’s mentor from Georgetown University, Carroll Quigley, wrote in his book, Tragedy and Hope on page 1247, “The chief problem of American political life for a long time has been how to make the two Congressional parties more national and international. The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers.

Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.” In other words, both parties now have the same agenda. The original printing of this book was in 1966 by MacMillan and the plates were destroyed because the information was so secretive. Fortunately it was reprinted in full in the 70s.
And lastly, pray for our beloved America daily. We haven’t much of a chance on our own, but the King of Glory answers prayer and miracles can happen.
