There would be no better way to defuse the threat to TPTB posed by a populist movement than to start your own 'populist movement" that YOU control...

The SAME PLAN was used in 1992 with Perot, who turned out to be a totalitarian corporate fascistic hardliner. Perot broke millions of hearts of old farts who almost killed themselves working for his promises of real change, and leaving them exhausted and betrayed, Perot single handedly removing any chance of a populist uprising upsetting the TPTB circle jerk democracy/republican applecart... for at least 20 years.. until today

Hey David, good thread here! Damn shame it isn't getting more attention.

The People's Mujahedin of Iran (also known as PMOI, MEK) is a topic that has interested me greatly. It's really quite funny that Dick Armey, such a die-hard American Patriot, would push to support this organization through the American taxpayer - it began as a socialist organization!

Today the organization is the militant wing of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, a "parliament-in-exile of the Iranian Resistance" headed by Massoud Rajavi. Rajavi and the MEK reportedly assisted in Saddam Hussein's early 90s campaign against the Kurds, which was cited by the US as one of Hussein's terrorist ties in the road leading up to the invasion of Iraq.

Another organization pushing for the MEK to taken off the terrorist list is the Iran Policy Committee (IPC). Formed in 2005, the IPC is a Washington D.C. based think tank that consists of "former White House, State Department, Pentagon and CIA officials." Closely affiliated with the IPC is the pro-Israel organization known as the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), and it's more notorious parent organization, AIPAC. Both of these organizations have made strong overtures against Iran through their influence in the US political realm in the recent past, securing arms deals and lobbying for Iranian sanctions even as there appears to be a major diplomatic row brewing between Israel and the US.

We can begin to make a circle here, one that will not interest a lot of people here at ATS. One of the other major Israel "strategy building" organizations is the Ariel Center for Policy Research - an organization that lists one Joseph Farrah as a "contributing expert." And who is Joseph Farrah?

He's the founder of World Net Daily.

You know, World Net Daily, who publishes books by that Right-Wing blowhard Michael Savage, who stated "Let's bring it on! Bomb Iran, bring our boys home now!" on his radio show. Oh, and we can't forget that World Net Daily's golden boy is Jerome Corsi, Patriot extraordinaire and author of books such as Why Israel Can't Wait: The Coming War Between Israel and Iran, Atomic Iran: How the Terrorist Regime Bought the Bomb and American Politicians and my personal fave, Showdown with Nuclear Iran: Radical Islam's Messianic Mission to Destroy Israel and Cripple the United States.

And now we close the circle:

Both Joseph Farrah and Dick Armey are members of the Council for National Policy, a public policy think tank that was formed to act as a "counterweight against liberal domination of the American agenda", both in reality is closer to a bunch of theocratic minded Neo-Conservatives.

Other members include Oliver North of Iran-Contra fame (the mother of all Iranian based conspiracies), Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Ed Meese (Iran-Contra), Reverend Moon (friend of George W. Bush, tied to Iran-Contra, accused of drug smuggling), and George W. Bush has addressed the organization. Oh, and Sarah Palin is a member.

Sourcewatch on the astro-turf (not grassroots) origins of the Tea Party "movement"...

The "tea party" anti-tax movement is not as spontaneous as its organizers would like you to think. Chris Good writes in The Atlantic, "Here is the organizational landscape of the April 15 tea party movement, in a nutshell: three national-level conservative groups, all with slightly different agendas, are guiding it. All are quick to tell you that the movement is a bottom-up affair and that its grassroots cred is real. They are: FreedomWorks, the conservative action group led by Dick Armey; dontGO, a tech savvy free-market action group that sprang out of last August's oil-drilling debate in the House of Representatives; and Americans for Prosperity, an issue advocacy/activist group based on free market principles. Conservative bloggers, talk show hosts, and other media figures have attached themselves to the movement in peripheral capacities. Armey will appear at a major rally in Atlanta, FreedomWorks said. All three groups vehemently deny that the movement is a product of AstroTurfing -- fake grassroots activism organized from the top down -- as some on the left have claimed."

Here is additional information on some of the things I mentioned in my previous post. Sorry if it's a bit overwhelming; it's alot of names and organizations to keep up with.

Dick Armey and the Heritage Foundation

Right off the bat I would like to point out that Armey has been a close affiliate of the Heritage Foundation, a New Right/Neo-Con hotbed dedicated to bringing "free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense" to our nation. Prominent mostly in the 1980s, the Heritage Foundation were the architects of the "Reagan Doctrine", which saw clandestine support for anti-communist movements around the world (for example, support for the Contras, which led to the notorious Iran-Contra conspiracy). The Reagan Doctrine wrecked havoc all across Latin America, reprecussions from which are still happening today. Direct ties also exist between Heritage and intellignce agency backed anti-Communist forces of the 1980s:

Meanwhile, there was also a connection between Heritage and the Rev Sun Myung Moon (founder of the Moonies). 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 [president of the Heritage Foundation]... was introduced to KCIA station chief Kim Yung Hwan by Neil Salonen and Dan Feffernan of the Freedom Leadership foundation".

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.

In the early 1980s, the KCIA began making donations to Heritage Foundation. In turn, Heritage established an Asian Studies Center.

Heritage has considerable financing organizations that may indicate vested interests: defense contractors such as Boeing and Lockheed Martin, oil companies like Chevron and Exxon Mobil, pharmateutical companies such as Pfizer and PhRMA, insurance companies such as AIG, and various neo-con organizations and think tanks like the Scaife Foundation, John M. Olin Foundation, JM Foundation, and the Castle Rock Foundation.

Dick Armey and FreedomWorks

Dick Armey's astroturfing movement that generated the Tea Parties is, of course, FreedomWorks. FreedomWorks was created in 2004 from a merger between "free market advocacy organization" Citizens for a Sound Economy and a right-wing think tank called Empower America. Not surprisingly, a former Dick Armey aide, Michele Davis, was one the economists in the employ of the Citizens for a Sound Economy. Davis has an interesting track record: she served as Armey's Communications Director from 1997 to 2001. From 2001 to 2002 she acted as Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs, appinted by Bush's first Treasury Secretary, Paul O'Neil. SourceWatch says:

"The Bush Files are filled with memos asking the Paul O'Neill and others to put the best possible face on controversial policies, including the administration's conduct in the war on terrorism. For instance, in January, 2002, O'Neill was coached to praise Saudi cooperation on terror financing in a memo from his press aide, Michele Davis. Behind the scenes, in fact, O'Neill and senior officials from the State Department and CIA were profoundly frustrated by the Saudis unwillingness to assist America at its time of crisis."

Following her stint at the Treasury, Davis went to work at... Fannie Mae.

Citizens for a Sound Economy was founded by Koch Industries, a Texas-based oil company founded by John Birch Society member Fred Koch. Koch Industries, the largest oil company contributing to Congressional candidates, donated to $800,000 to Conservative campaigns during George Bush's election bid.

FreedomWork's other half, Empower America, was established in 2003 in order to "ensuring that government actions foster growth, economic well-being, freedom and individual responsibility" through means of "strategic intervention" to achieve this goal, such as "reaching out through the media, communicating directly with legislators and political leaders, sponsoring solution-finding or consensus-building forums, or mobilizing public opinion at the grassroots level". Empower America's board of directors list shows several members of the American Enterprise Institute present, such as Jeane J. Kirkpatrick and Michael Novak.

The American Enterprise Institute, or AEI for short, is the epiceter. of Neo-Conservative and New Right ideology in America. Ronald Reagan once said:

"The American Enterprise Institute stands at the center of a revolution in ideas of which I, too, have been a part. AEI's remarkably distinguished body of work is testimony to the triumph of the think tank. For today the most important American scholarship comes out of our think tanks – and none has been more influential than the American Enterprise Institute."

In the more recent past the AEI has worked closely with the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), which also includes the aformentioned Jeane J. Kirkpatrick in it's membership rosters.. If the Heritage Foundation shaped Reagan's foreign policy, then the PNAC certainly shaped Bush's: since the mid-90s the PNAC lobbied for military action in Iraq, as well as future action taken against 'rogue states' such as Syria, Iran and North Korea. Some 22 members of the PNAC would take key spots in the Bush administration.

Other members of the AEI have included Richard Perle, who lobbied for the US government to support MEK in Iran, as well as advocate military action against Iran; Michael Ledeen, a suspected Israeli spy and Iran-Contra conspirator who has also advocated for military action in Iran; Dick Cheney; and Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court Justice who recently sold us out to the corporate powers. Funding from the AEI comes from, once again, New Right think-tanks such as the Scaife Foundation, the Heritage Foundation and the John M. Olin Foundation, and corporations such as ExxonMobil.

Is a bigger picture starting to take shape? The organizations that spawned the Tea Party movements are all deeply imbedded with the New Right and Neo-Conservative movements in DC, all dedicated to further military action abroad.

The Iran Policy Committee

The Iran Policy Committee, which I point in my previous post is linked to the Israeli lobby and World Net Daily via Joseph Farrah, has a most interesting board of directors that ties to both the propoganda machine that is Fox News as well as some the shadier actions undertaken by our government.

Let's take Bill Cowan, a former Marine officer and head of WVC3 Group, Inc., one the Homeland Security contractors. Says their website:

(continued below)

reply to post by Someone336

(continued from above)

"There are many companies that say they offer similar services, but what separates the wvc3 group from the pack is our unique, hands-on personal experiences. Whether it was routing out and targeting terrorists in the Middle East for the Pentagon and the CIA, or training and exercising first responders here in the United States for their State and local governments, our team members have been there, boots-on-the-ground. We were on special assignments in the jungles and mountains of Southeast Asia during the Viet Nam war, ran successful operations against the KGB's and GRU's best in Europe and Africa, and were proud to be part of the liberation forces in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Operating continuously in Beirut during its darkest days, we ran a highly successful hostage rescue mission into Kuwait during its occupation by Saddam Hussein, and, later, we went to Iraq - from Baghdad to Mosul, Tikrit to Babylon - to provide the Pentagon, Capitol Hill, and international viewers with our battlefield appraisal."

Cowan, along with WVC3 two other founders Robert L. Maginnis and Robert S. Bevelacqua, were participants in the "Pentagon military analyst program", which was launched in 2002 by the Bush Administration to help sell the American public the idea of the Iraq War. Referred to as "psy-ops on steroids', the program's participants were by far mostly lobbyists for defense contractors. Cowan is still a military analyst on Fox News.

Another Iran Policy Committee member who participated in the Pentagon military analyst program, and now senior military analyst for Fox News, is Thomas G. McInerney. McInerney's claim to fame is that he was the leader in the Pentagon's scaling back on government payroll by giving contracts to private corporations. In 2004 McInerney co-authored Endgame: The Blueprint for Victory in the War on Terror, which called for additional military action to push regime changes in Iran, Syria and North Korea, an agenda closely aligned with that promoted by the PNAC.

Co-authoring Endgame with McInerney was General Paul E. Vallely, another Iran Policy Committee member and - surprise! or not - a participant in the Pentagon military analyst program and Fox News military analyst. Paul Valley, the first president of the National Psychological Operations Association, has also written a book entitled "From PSYOP to Mindwar: The Psychology of Victory".

As author of "From PSYOP to Mindwar: The Psychology of Victory", he has stated, that "MindWar" "states a whole truth that, if it does not now exist, will be forced into existence by the will of the United States." [2] Vallely has described "MindWar" as using "electronic media -- television and radio" in the "deliberate, aggressive convincing of all participants in a war that we will win that war."

Let's continue onwards!

Another IPC veteran, Charles Nash, is also a Fox News military pundit and and participant in the Pentagon military analyst program.

Next we have Clare M. Lopez, a twenty year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency and a military analyst for the Middle East Institute, an organization that receives funding from companies that include Shell, ExxonMobil, Raytheon, Hunt Oil, General Dynamic, BAE Systems, DynCorp, Boeing, Chevron, General Motors, Halliburton, Lockheed Martin and the National Bank of Dubai.

ClareLopez is also a military analyst for Hawkeye Systems, a subsidiary of Gray Hawk Systems, which is one of the major intelligence agency defense contractors. Hawkeye's founder James Kelley, as well as other personnel, are closely related to DARPA's secretative "Project Genoa". Wikipedia has a brief blurb on Project Genoa:

Project Genoa was a software project at DARPA's Information Awareness Office, the purpose of which was to analyse sick amounts of data and metadata. It's enough data to create a whole person from scratch. Virtual reality where all sensation and perception would be indistinguishable from real-world interaction is possible with this magnitude of data processing and machine-consciousness.

The Information Awareness Office, also known as "Total Information Awareness", is a little known DARPA project in the early 2000s that was headed by John Poindexter, the National Security Adviser to Ronald Reagan that was, next to Oliver North, the largest conspirator in the Iran-Contra conspiracy.

The IAO's stated mission is to gather as much information as possible about everyone in a centralized location for easy perusal by the United States government, including Internet activity, credit card purchase histories, airline ticket purchases, car rentals, medical records, educational transcripts, driver's licenses, utility bills, tax returns, and any other available data. In essence, the goal of the IAO is to be able to recreate a life history of thoughts and movements for any individual on the planet on demand, which the Bush administration deems necessary to counter the threat of terrorism. Critics claim the very existence of the IAO completely disregards the concept of individual privacy and liberties and is far too invasive and prone to abuse.

Quite terrifying, to say the least. Luckily, the 2003 Senate defense appropriations bill eliminating funding the operation. However, rumors have persisted that it simply changed names and has continued to this day.

But back to the Iran Policy Committee!

The last individual we have to look at is Raymond Tanter. He's closely aligned with the Israeli lobby, being affiliated with AIPAC, the Anti-Defamation League, the B'nai B'rith and WINEP, as well as holding a spot on the Council on Foreign Relation's Economic Sanctions Task Force. I imagine that Dick Armey and Raymond Tanter get along just fine, based on this exchange from an Australian interview with Tanter:

PROFESSOR RAYMOND TANTER: I am not a lobbyist for the MEK and the NCRI, I'm a lobbyist for America, which is different. You keep asking me questions which imply that I am trying to push the MEK on to people.

REPORTER: But you are promoting their cause, you're trying to get them off…

PROFESSOR RAYMOND TANTER: I am not promoting their cause, I am promoting American interests. There is a difference.

REPORTER: You're not suggesting they are necessarily a good replacement government, you are saying rather they are a good tool for Western interests?

PROFESSOR RAYMOND TANTER: That's what you asked me, they are a tool for Western interests, yes. They are accused of being a tool of Western interests by the regime. It's true!

REPORTER: And they are a tool for Western interests?

PROFESSOR RAYMOND TANTER: Yes! They want to be a part of the West.

Once again, full circle!

So Tea-Parties, how is that patriotism working out for you? Allow me to be blunt.. you've all been duped into promoting the rapid return of the New Right and Neo-Con cabal to the White House by a consortium of big corporations, intelligence agencies, Israeli lobbyists and war hawks. And we can all guess what the eventual endgame is here: further military action around the world to ensure the PNAC's fabled "New American Century", the Pax Americana. First target: Iran.

Excellent work, 'Someone'...and 'David'!

The kind of rhetoric being spewed, and fanned over in the "Tea Party" movement has always struck me as suspect --- and it smacked (a bit) of Hitler-ish 'Brown Shirts' --- if I can coin a phrase such as "Hitler-ish".

I had a sense that the entire 'movement' was orchestrated to merely 'rabble-rouse' the easily roused. And it sure worked like a charm; funny how easy it is to manipulate those who don't think with their fore brains, but instead let Fox "news", and right-wing hate radio do it for them.

However, I have a fear that your message may fall on mostly blind ears and deaf eyes here at ATS. Based on an unscientific sampling, from my reading of many threads on politics here. There seem to be an inordinate number of those of the right-ish persuasion in most cases actively posting, and that astonished me, at first.

But, I was naive enough to think that those who actually looked for hints between the lines would do so reasonably, and without the carbon-copy right-side USA political bias and hypocrisy that infests so much in politics today.

[Stepping down, now, from "Speaker's Corner" platform. Not really in Hyde Park, but it seemed a good idea at the time...]

Thanks for the kind words, Weedwhacker.

I believe the issue that David raised in this thread is an extremely important one given the dark cloud hanging over American politics right now - I'm not just saying that because of any leftist biases I may have.

As I illustrated in my posts, there exists behind the veil this postmodern patriot movement a disturbing allegiance of lobbyists, foreign interests, intelligence agencies, religious nuts, public policy think-tanks and mega-corporations. However, there is also an even darker streak where we begin to see things like Total Information Awareness, "MindWar", and militaristic psychological operations. Its a covert propaganda war being waged on the American populace and its a damn effective one. Does anyone remember this:

The memo tracks the fundraising presentation that RNC Finance Director Rob Bickhart delivered to the RNC's $2,500-a-head annual retreat. The best path to victory in 2010, the document advises, is for Republican candidates to depict themselves as the best hope for resisting the "trending toward socialism" taking shape in a Democrat-dominated Washington.

Leaked documents reveal GOP plan to use scare tactics to raise money

This has been all too effective. I shutter and cringe every time I see people on ATS pull out the socialism! card. Socialism is now a meme that has infiltrated the American consciousness and reverted us to some long lost 1950s society - Red Scare and all. While people are looking for any trace of socialism! communism! and losing themselves in stupid circles of Hitler was a communist!, fascism is left wing! and America is defined by it's beautiful, corporate health care!, they lost track of the fact that the majority of Obama's policies have been and will be likely continue to be continuations of Bush-era policies. Beautiful obfuscation! People are waxing poetically about the good ol' days of Bush, ready to take to the streets over socialist! healthcare - despite the fact that there isn't an ounce of actual socialism in the healthcare bill - all the while ignoring that that pesky PATRIOT Act still exists, we're still blowing stuff up in the Middle East, and the government is still a slave to corporate interests. And it's all thanks, based on what I can see, to a detailed propaganda operation conceived by those who profit from war and want to see the advent of Neo-Colonialism. They understand that in order to maintain superpower status, America will have to play the Great Game and control the most precious of all natural resources - oil - through military action.

It's the left - right - one - two punch.

Hey guys, just got a bit more info:

We can clearly see that the patriot movements are astroturfed by loose conglomerates of questionable persons and organizations, the same conglomerate that essentially sits at the core of the Republican Party. But such a conglomerate must have a center, right?

That center is the Council for National Policy, and Dick Armey has had a slot in the membership roster in the organization. Says Barry W. Lynn of the CNP:

"The real crux of this is that these are the genuine leaders of the Republican Party, but they certainly aren't going to be visible on television next week."

The organization was founded by one Tim LaHaye, known by many as the co-author of the popular "Left Behind" series of books. A graduate of the Bob Jones University, LaHaye was closely affiliated with the Right-Wing fringe organization known as the John Birch Society, a member of which, I pointed out in an earlier post, founded one of the organizations that would eventually become Armey's FreedomWorks.

What is odd about Tim LaHaye, a conservative fundamentalist Christian, is that he was once in the direct employ of Reverend Sun Myung Moon, acting as the chairman of Moon's "Coalition for Religious Freedom". As a matter of fact, Moon, the founder of the Unification Church, is also listed as a member of the Council for National Policy, not to mention a close friend of George W. Bush. Moon was also crowded "Messiah of the World" in 2004, promising to unite the world under a single religion based out of his native country of South Korea. I know it sound weird, but look it up! It's true!

The Unification Church also has prominent control of influential organization, including the Washington Times, Insight Magazine, and New World Communications. In addition to it's expanding media monopoly, the Unification Church also maintains a strong political arm through an organization known as CAUSA. CAUSA, standing for "Confederation of the Associations for the Unification of the Societies of the Americas" is a militant anti-Communist organization. Allow me to quote from The Telegraph, July 23rd, 1987, "Is There A Moonie - North - Contra Connection?"

Note found in [Oliver] North's files links Pak [Bo Hi Pak, Moon's right hand man] and CAUSA - the name of Moon dominated political groups - to North and his Contra support network.

One of CAUSA's advisory board members is a controversial San Fransisco priest, whose research outfit got $100,00 from a Contra leader and from a company that North allegedly used to launder Contra aid.

The Council on National Policy and Iran-Contra

Many members of the CNP can be tied directly to Iran-Contra - in particular ol' Ollie North that is mentioned directly above. Another such CNP member is John Singlaub, an ex-OSS and CIA officer who was the head of CAUSA USA. In 1981 Singlaub founded the United States Council for World Freedom, which was the US branch of the World Anti-Communist League. A Former WACL member described the organization as "largely a collection of Nazis, Fascists, anti-Semites, sellers of forgeries, vicious racialists, and corrupt self-seekers," while the USCWF became one of Oliver North's money funneling conduits to the Contras. Singlaub was also the founder of the Western Goals Foundation, a conservative "private intelligence dissemination network" that would also be revealed to be part of North's network. Funded by Texas oil man Nelson Bunker Hunt (another member of the CNP.. more on him in a minute), the Western Goal Foundation's other co-founders John Rees and Larry McDonald, were also WACL and John Birch Society members.

Edwin Meese is another CNP member linked to the conspiracy. Meese, Ronald Reagan's attorney general, was the legal consultant and damage control man for the arms sales to Iran. Sourcewatch says of him:

During the Reagan Kitchen Cabinet, Joseph Coors and others from the Heritage Foundation received a letter of endorsement from White House Chief of Staff Ed Meese in which Meese promised Edward J. Feulner, Jr., the president of Heritage, that 'this Administration will cooperate fully with your efforts.' After leaving the Reagan administration, Meese joined the staff of the Heritage Foundation.

T. Kenneth Cribb Jr, Ed Meese's chief counsel during his tenure as Attorney General for President Reagan, also belonged to the CNP. Cribb was also affiliated with the "the principal outreach organization of the Conservative Movement", the Young American's Foundation.

Nelson Bunker Hunt

I briefly mentioned Nelson Bunker Hunt, a CNP member who acted as the financial backer for Singlaub's Iran-Contra money front, the Western Goal Foundation. Nelson Bunker Hunt was a high ranking officer of the John Birch Society, not to mention spent time as board member of Brown and Root... later to be known as Kellogg, Brown & Root, the notorious subsidiary of Halliburton..

Hunt's father was H.L. Hunt, an "eccentric billionaire" who founded Hunt Oil, one of the funders of the Middle East Institute with the reputation for "being one of the big money Texas donors behind the Bush family political empire." SourceWatch posts an interesting connection between Hunt Oil and the CIA:

Between November 27 and November 28, 2006, a civil aircraft registered to Hunt Oil's holding company, Hunt Consolidated, Inc., made two visits to the CIA's Camp Peary training facility. Prior to flying into Camp Peary it made an overnight stop at Washington Dulles airport. It also made a briefer stop at Washington Dulles at the end of its visit.[6] The aircraft's registration number is N46F.

However, this isn't the only connection between the intelligence community and Hunt Oil: Hunt Oil's CEO, Ray L. Hunt (Nelson B. Hunt's brother), was appointed by George Bush to the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board in October of 2001. Ray Hunt has other interesting creditials: board of directors of Halliburton, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, National Petroleum Council, Electronic Data Systems...

Nelson Hunt has some rather questionable organizations that he belongs to as well: he's in the International Association for the Advancement of Eugenics and Ethnology (IAAEE). The IAAEE, an organization dedicated to promoting ideas of eugenics and social segregation, was founded
in 1959 by Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton, "a member of the British Cliveden Set which supported appeasement of Adolf Hitler prior to World War II." Members include Robert Gayre, a former head of the World Anti-Communist League, Professor K. Otto Rech, a German professor who strongly supported the ideas of 'removing inferior races', and Professor Luigi Gedda, who was reportedly a member of the P2 Lodge. If you don't know about the P2 scandal, please, google it. It's a mindboggling story, and far outside the scope of this thread. I mention its indirect connection to the Iraq War here:

The Israeli Lobby - Too Powerful!

Michael Ledeen, the suspect Israeli spy and Iran-Contra co-conspirator that I have mentioned a couple of times is also a suspected affiliate of the P2 Lodge.

One last word on the IAAEE: one of the more known members of the eugenics organization was Charles S. Coon, an anthropologist who supported racial segregation in the South. In 1945, Coon wrote to Wild Bill Donovan, the head of OSS. He said:

Some other power, some third class of individuals aside from the leaders and the scholars must exist, and this third class must have the task of thwarting mistakes, and nipping the causes of potential disturbances in the bud. There must a body of men whose task it is to throw out the rotten apples as soon as the first spots of decay appear... A body of this nature must exist undercover. It must either be a power unto itself, or be given the broadest discretionary powers by the highest human authorities....

More to come later!

The corruption runs so deep that even something that was supposed to be a populist movement has been completely corrupted from the start.

It's insanity...and people ARE IGNORING THIS!!!!

I'd give you more stars if I could. You should really consider making a thread on this information. No one seems to be looking at it...and they should!!!!

This is crazy.

Dick Armey is the de facto leader of the Tea Party? Since when? I haven't heard one reference to Dick Armey as the leader of the Tea Party in any media, left or right. He might call himself a Tea Party member but he isn't any leader of the Tea Party.

I agree holy crap. This needs to be front page ATS.

Whether in this thread or a separate one, people need to know this. So stars around the board and flag and bump from me.

So to kind of sum up/double check I understand...

Dick Armey supported an Israeli rogue installation in Iran. The Tea Party movement is largely a creation of him and other Neo-Con buddies to remain in power through the Hegelian Dialectic... And also there are strange connections to Psychological Warfare.


Sounds exactly like what many others have been harping from the fringey fringe... Like Icke, Maxwell, Wilcock, Project Camelot and others(who else? there is more...). The only X factor that links them is that all of these people are also claiming stuff about ET's.

So, is the X factor a disinformation campaign to put the truth out there with the stale taste of 'nobody will believe you'? Or is the X factor really an X factor that links the motive of this New World hegelian cabal?

I think that is the deepest question that is being discussed right now. Probably why Jim Marrs wrote Alien Agenda...

Again, great info David and Someone. Thank you.

He is the head of Freedom works that has set up many of the tea party events. All you have to do is look it up. I'm not trying to deceive anyone.

I get emails from Freedom Works all the time.

Here is one I received 4-1-10:

This Tax Day, FreedomWorks Foundation is helping coordinate a nationwide protest the likes of which the Left has never seen. They ignored the revolution that has been brewing across the country and rammed through ObamaCare. Now the grassroots outrage has boiled over. And on April 15th, Tea Partiers everywhere are taking to the streets to send the message loud and clear: “We’re steaming mad, and we’re taking our country back!”

With our assistance, hundreds of Tax Day Tea Parties have organized in small towns and big cities from coast to coast, including the rally we are hosting in Washington, DC. We expect over ONE MILLION protesters across the country, and I hope you’ll be among them. But if you cannot, there are still plenty of ways for you to help out and make your voice heard for freedom. You see, such a massive and coordinated effort is no small undertaking. In fact, the logistics are staggering and many local Tea Parties will need a helping hand financially.

First of all, our primary goal is to maximize turnout at both the local rallies and the DC event. That takes buses, and A LOT of them. With the numbers we’re anticipating, it comes out to $75 a head to get people to and from their rally. Do you think you can sponsor a Tea Partier to strengthen our message? Also, we hope to live stream the DC rally’s impressive line-up of speakers.

Tucker Carlson, Andrew Breitbart, Congressman Ron Paul, FreedomWorks Chairman Dick Armey and many more will be there, and we want to share that with you online. Unfortunately, that carries a hefty price-tag of $10,000 and that item is currently underfunded in our budget.

If you can, please click here to contribute $200 or more toward our live stream broadcast. And of course, there are logistical “must haves” for such large gatherings. Porta-potties run about $185, and security barriers are $45 each. Also, protesters will need plenty of signs to voice their outrage, and those cost $5 a piece. Maybe chipping in $185, $45 or just $5 for these physical necessities works best for your budget right now. Whatever amount you can spare will go a long way to this critical effort. These Tax Day Tea Parties are really shaping up, and I’m excited. I hope you are, too. But I also want to see them go off without a hitch, and time is short and dollars are tight, so I’m counting on allies like you to see this through to success.

Let me once again give you a quick rundown of the ways you can help: - Pitch in toward our live stream broadcast for $200 or more - Rent a portable toilet for $185 - Sponsor a Tea Partier for $75 - Set up a security barrier for $45 - Put a sign in the hands of a protester for $5 I cannot imagine a time when events like this could be more important.

Passage of ObamaCare has the Left invigorated, and more Big Government power grabs are sure to come. We need to show Congress that Americans are up in arms over this march toward socialism, so next time they’ll think twice about rubber-stamping Barack Obama’s radical agenda. Remember, 2010 elections are right around the corner, and Tea Partiers VOTE. And THAT’S why it’s so important these April 15th protests be nothing short of complete success.

The more visible we are, the more scared the politicians will be. And as Thomas Jefferson said, that’s when we have liberty. Please make a donation to our Tax Day Tea Parties today.

Dick Armey Chairman, FreedomWorks

P.S. On the morning of April 15th, FreedomWorks is also hosting a grassroots training program in Washington, D.C. Our “Liberty Summit” will feature discussion from prominent experts on next steps at the state level to beat back ObamaCare, the looming threat of cap and trade, and helpful how-to instruction in successful grassroots advocacy techniques. CLICK HERE to register!

Tucker Carlson, Andrew Breitbart, Congressman Ron Paul, FreedomWorks Chairman Dick Armey and many more will be there, and we want to share that with you online.

WHY is Ron Paul hanging out with Dick Armey?

Anyone know?

Freedom Works

Founded in 1984, FreedomWorks is headquartered in Washington, DC, and has hundreds of thousands of grassroots volunteers nationwide. The organization is chaired by former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey and the President is Matt Kibbe.

FreedomWorks members know that government goes to those who show up, and are leading the fight for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom. Join us!

What We Do
FreedomWorks recruits, educates, trains and mobilizes hundreds of thousands of volunteer activists to fight for less government, lower taxes, and more freedom.

Why We Do It
FreedomWorks believes individual liberty and the freedom to compete increases consumer choices and provides individuals with the greatest control over what they own and earn.

How We Do It
FreedomWorks' aggressive, real-time campaigns activate a growing and permanent volunteer grassroots army to show up and demand policy change.

"[FreedomWorks], the conservative think tank and grassroots lobbying powerhouse ... has long shared Dick Armey's passion for tax cuts and deregulation." - National Journal, Nov. 16 2002

"Folks, you've got to get to know this organization ... They have been doing a great job all over the country educating people." -President George W. Bush

That's pretty much it... Richard Armey is closely aligned to the powerful Israeli lobby in America, undoubtedly due to his involved with theocratic minded evangelical politicians who see no problem in violence, extortion, drug-running, consorting with racists and neo-Nazis and whole host of other wholly unChristian action in order to live out their renegade vision of America. Armey and his ilk are essentially an American Taliban, aside, of course, the vast array of individuals and corporations that are just along for the financial ride.

Psychological warfare, eugenics, terrorism, clandestine activities... this is the hidden history of modern America.

Of course, the left wing administration that is sitting in the office right now isn't clean from this by any means, and for the most part answers to the same capitalist entities that these goons do.

Are you familiar with Edward Bernays? He is the father of the field of public relations, assimilating with field of crowd psychology and psychoanalytics (Sigmund Freud was his uncle) in order to push consumerism to the masses subconsciously. He also worked with United Fruit and the CIA in the 1950s in disseminating propaganda during the overthrow of the democratically elected president of Guatemala. Bernays once said:

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.
