"The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent." Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, allegedly killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was allegedly shot down by the Soviets
"We have four boxes with which to defend our freedom: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box." -Representative Larry McDonald
"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." -G. K. Chesterton
Representative Larry McDonald was born April 1, 1935 in Atlanta, Georgia and supposedly died September 1, 1983 in the Sea of Japan. He was aboard Korean Airlines Flight 007. McDonald was invited to South Korea to attend a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the United States–South Korea Mutual Defense Treaty with fellow members of Congress, Senator Jesse Helms of North Carolina, Senator Steve Symms of Idaho, and Representative Carroll Hubbard of Kentucky. Because of delays, the other three did not take the same flight as McDonald. A Soviet MiG-23 Flogger and three Soviet Su-15 Flagon fighters intercepted and allegedly shot down the plane over Sakhalin Island in the Sea of Japan. There were 268 others allegedly lost at sea.
It is my belief, along with many others, that the plane was forced to land on Soviet soil, and those who survived, including, and especially, McDonald, became Soviet prisoners. [Link]
Larry was a US Representative from Georgia from 1975-1983. He was also the National Chairman of the John Birch Society. McDonald graduated from Emory Medical School in 1957, just prior to his 18th birthday. He was the second youngest physician in Georgia state history at the age of 22, but his father had topped him by a couple months, having been the youngest physician in the state's history. He then joined the US Navy and served four years as a physician and flight surgeon. While in Reykjavik as a Navy flight surgeon, he saw something that awakened his understanding about communism.
When he returned home, he began reading political history and books on foreign policy. He looked for others concerned about the communist threat he had seen, and was now aware of, but the only organization he found trying to warn the people was the John Birch Society. He joined them in 1963, and he became the Chairman in March, 1983, shortly before his death. He was well versed on America's founding fathers and the Constitution, and he also saw the rise of Bolshevism in Russia and the spread of international communism. He knew this was led in the US by the elitist globalist agenda of the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, and Rockefellers.
In 1972, Dr. McDonald ran for the House of Representatives as a Democrat. He lost, but still won 48% of the votes, proving his efforts to build an informed electorate in the 7th Congressional District of Georgia.
McDonald was known for his conservative views, even by Southern standards, and he was more conservative than the Republican Party. In fact, one scoring method published in the American Journal of Political Science named him the second most conservative member of either chamber of Congress between 1937 and 2002 (behind only Ron Paul). He also scored "perfect or near perfect ratings" on the congressional scorecards of the National Right to Life Committee, Gun Owners of America, and the American Security Council.
Referred to by The New American magazine as "the leading anti-Communist in Congress," McDonald admired Senator Joseph McCarthy and was a member of the Joseph McCarthy Foundation. Unlike many national Democrats, McDonald held a consistently conservative line on issues such as foreign policy, defense spending, fiscal restraint, states' rights, gun rights, and pro-life. He called the welfare state a disaster and wished to turn over the "Great Society" of LBJ to the states.
In 1978, the Democratic party censured him for the despicable act of calling himself a Democrat, basically for two reasons. The first was his involvement with the anti-communist John Birch Society, and the second reason was his failure to support Jimmy Carter.
During his time in Congress, McDonald introduced over 150 bills, including legislation to:
• Repeal the Gun Control Act of 1968.
• Remove the limitation upon the amount of outside income which a Social Security recipient may earn.
• Award honorary U.S. Citizenship to Russian dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
• Prohibit Federal funds from being used to finance the purchase of American agricultural commodities by any Communist country.
• Impeach UN Ambassador Andrew Young.
• Limit eligibility for appointment and admission to any United States service academy to men.
• Direct the Comptroller General of the United States to audit the gold held by the United States annually.
• Increase the national speed limit to 65 miles per hour (105 km/h) from the then-prevailing national speed limit of 55 miles per hour (89 km/h).
• Abolish the Federal Election Commission.
• Get the U.S. out of the United Nations.
McDonald also introduced numerous bills to stop the making of loans and selling of arms to communist or communist friendly regimes.
He was adamant about the lack of education regarding the Federal Reserve and wrote a booklet, We Hold These Truths, published in 1976, explaining to the public the formation of the Constitution and the issues facing the country. Larry McDonald, Steve Symms of Idaho, and Ron Paul of Texas were considered the three most conservative men in Congress at that time. I wish we had hundreds of them today.
Now let's take a look at who we call one of the top conservatives today, namely:
Texas Senator, Ted Cruz
Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz was born December, 1970 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to an Irish-Italian mother who was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware, and to Rafael Cruz, who was born in Matanzas, Cuba, in 1939. His father fled Cuba at the age of 18, and became a US Citizen in 2005. Accordingly, Cruz is ineligible for US president or vice president. See Publius Huldah's important article on this subject.
He holds dual citizenship with Canada and the United States. He was elected to the Senate in 2012, and is the junior Republican Senator from the state of Texas. He was Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 to May 2008 and was the first Hispanic Solicitor General in Texas, the youngest in the United States, and the longest tenure of a Solicitor General in Texas history. He is one of three Latinos in the Senate, along with Marco Rubio and Bob Menendez, all Cuban-Americans.
During high school, Cruz participated in a Houston-based group called the Free Market Education Foundation where Cruz learned about free-market economic philosophers such as Milton Friedman, Friedrich Hayek, Frédéric Bastiat, and Ludwig von Mises, all of whom were proponents of classical liberalism. Cruz graduated cum laude from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in 1992. Cruz then attended Harvard Law school, graduating, magna cum laude in 1995 with a Juris Doctor. Professor Alan Dershowitz stated, "Cruz was a terrific student, he was always very active in class, presenting a libertarian point of view. He didn't strike me as a social conservative, more of a libertarian."
Cruz served as law clerk to Chief Justice of the United States, William Rehnquist. After his clerkships, he then took a position with the law firm of Cooper, Carvin & Rosenthal. In 1998, Cruz served as private counsel for Congressman John Boehner, during Boehner's lawsuit against Congressman Jim McDermott for releasing a tape recording of a Boehner telephone conversation. [Link]
After a couple of years at this D.C. law firm, Cruz became domestic policy adviser to the presidential campaign of then-Texas Governor George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Cruz brought to the table his own formidable, even astonishing, elite connections which, in 1999, helped enable candidate George W. Bush's lock on the 2000 election. In that same year, when Cruz was a George W. Bush campaign aide, he arranged a meeting between one of the key architects of the Christian right movement, Paul Weyrich, who played a pivotal role in drawing evangelicals into electoral politics, and one of Bush's campaign leaders, Timothy Goeglein. Goeglein went on to serve as Special Assistant to U.S. President George W. Bush and Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Liaison from 2001 to 2008, and now works with Focus on The Family,(a UN-NGO). After President Bush took office, Cruz served as an associate deputy attorney general in the U.S. Justice Department and as the director of policy planning at the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
Cruz' ties to Paul Weyrich are nonetheless even more jaw-dropping considering who Weyrich was. How did Cruz earn the friendship of the man who helped create the Heritage Foundation, the Moral Majority, Free Congress Foundation, and the American Legislative Exchange Council, (ALEC)?
Cruz' tenure as legal aid to Justice Rehnquist gained him inside access to the new "Christian right" leaders. He had inherited ties as well, through his father, Rafael Cruz, businessman and pastor, who explained his role at a July, 2013 Iowa pastors conference sponsored by Council for National Policy members and Dominionists, Don and Tim Wildmon, of American Family Association,(a UN-NGO), in helping get Ronald Reagan elected. This Conference was also attended by his U.S. Senator son, Ted. It was through Rafael's involvement in one of the earliest incarnations of the politicized religious right, Ed McAteer's Religious Roundtable, of which Paul Weyrich was a co-founder.

(In the massive book, Thy Will Be Done: The Conquest of the Amazon: Nelson Rockefeller and Evangelism in the Age of Oil, authors Gerard Colby and Charlotte Dennett present the disturbing evidence of Rockefeller's use of American missionaries, and in particular, the Summer Institute of Linguistics, who cooperated in conducting surveys, transporting CIA agents, and indirectly assisting in the genocide of tribes in the Amazon basin. Colby and Dennett also describe the vital role of Wycliffe board member, 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. Wycliffe recently attempted to publish a Bible removing the words "Father" and "Son" in order to be more appealing to Muslims Arab translations. However, an outcry temporarily stopped this. Link)
In Part 2, we'll take a closer look at just who Paul Weyrich was and the power he had in the neo-conservative Christian right circles, as well as those who are funding and promoting Ted Cruz.
