A Short History of Reported CIA Fronts

Is your "progressive" organization a CIA-Mossad political control group? Find out....
I used to teach a course on how to investigate and
research Foundation Tax Returns, originally called IRS
form 990-A, and then form 990-AR, the only tax return,
by the way, that is available as a public document.

Donors Forum, with office/libraries in many big
cities, have on hand for copying, copies of Foundation
Tax Returns in that district of the office, sometimes
other districts, of their public tax returns as a
tax-exempt entity. In a scandal that was started by
Bobby Kennedy in the Spring, of 1967, various
foundations around the U.S. were identified as part of
a complicated three-level device for disguising CIA
funding of domestic operations: [1] conduits [2]
pass-throughs and [3] fronts [a technical term].

A summary of the scandal can be seen in the numerous
pages of the New York Times "Index" for 1967, a
summary of stories in that newspaper, under the
heading, Central Intelligence Agency. Before they
could accomplish a cover up, I and my associates
quickly looked up the 990-A tax returns of the CIA
foundations on the three technical levels mentioned.
We developed expertise in showing over and above the
mass media published reports, where the money came
from and was distributed.

Among our disclosures, which did not endear us to
fellow peaceniks who heckled me as a trouble-maker: 1.
Most liberal groups with an office and some funds for
a regular staff, got their funding through the three
levels, from CIA, including the American Civil
Liberties Union, which went out of business in 1967
and was completely taken over by espionage groups,
since then called the Roger Baldwin Foundation of
ACLU, and such.

If you carefully examine the board of overseers of
what amateurs continue wrongly call the "American
Civil Liberties Union", you will see the espionage
types that run the operations throughout the U.S. They
are an early-warning system, for example, of flare-ups
against the government in the ghettos of big cities.

2. The Nation Magazine, which according to some, does
some good, fails and neglects to mention DOMESTIC
operations of CIA. A simple answer: their funding
comes from, among others, a CIA-front, called the J.M.
Kaplan Fund of New York, and a group of CIA
foundations grouped under the umbrella of the
CIA-funded Roger Baldwin Foundation of ACLU and
similar names.

Moreover, the Nation Magazine published commentaries
making vile statements against Oliver Stone, that JFK
was, in fact, the Nation says, killed by a lone
assassin and that the movie "JFK" is a phantasy and a
"fraud". Thus whitewashing the Dallas murder for what
some claim was a CIA-instigated plot against JFK.

3. The Nation Magazine did finally admit several years
ago that what they erroneously persist in calling the
"AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION" [which actually was
taken over by the CIA-foundations in 1967] was very
close to FBI dictator/boss J. Edgar Hoover by way of
investigating and combatting so-called "Reds" in
America.

THIS NEXT ITEM IS SURELY GOING TO OUTRAGE SOME WHO ARE
NAIVE AND POORLY INFORMED:

4. Pacifica Radio, which like the Nation Magazine, has
done SOME good, has been reportedly a CIA-Foundation
operation, New York, Houston, and the Bay area,
California. During the anti-war period, some rednecks,
believing that Pacifica-Houston, was a genuine
"liberal" group, purportedly bombed the station there.

A simple, though certainly not complete answer, is
that the stations were used as provocateur operations,
to lure out more independent-minded political
activists who are and were naive. For example,
however, Pacifica, Berkeley, went almost into orbit
when Dennis Bernstein of that station, without
realizing I am an independent, was unable to stop me
from blurting out condemnation of the oil industry and
George Bush.

Some of his confidants informed me he almost got run
over by the station management for letting a "loud
mouth" like me on the air. By the way, I call National
Public Radio, NPR, as NATIONAL PETROLEUM RADIO, since
they try to keep oil scandals OFF the air.

A simple, though certainly not complete answer: for
some years Sharon Percy ROCKEFELLER, WIFE OF U.S.
Senator John D. Rockefeller 4th, headed NPR. [She now
heads a PBS operation in D.C. instrumental in the Jim
Lehrer News Hour on so-called Public TV.]

No one in NPR, PBS, or for that matter, in the
commercial oil-soaked mass media, would dare mention
that the family of Sharon Percy Rockefeller is
reportedly in business withthe CIA-created purported
"terrorist" Osama bin Laden.

Their joint funds are reportedly kept in the Harris
Bank in Chicago, under many concealed accounts. Harris
Bank is a unit of the whiskey-soaked Bronfman family,
owners jointly with U.S. Senator Peter Fitzgerald of
Ill., [R., Ill.] of the Bank of Montreal [Canada].
Bill Clinton said he would like to "freeze" bin
Laden's huge funds but cannot "find" them. Really?

Sidebar note: son of Pacific Foundation founder was
one of three activists murdered and buried in
Mississippi in an outrageous situation about 1963. [I
believe the name was Schwerner.]

Recently, Pacifica Radio in California has fought
their part-time staff who apparently wanted a union
contract arrangement. Pacifica's New York operation,
WBAI, years ago allowed me occasionally on the air
until I begin mentioning the CIA-paid and funded
provocateurs. It was too close to home for them.

BOTTOM LINE: the CIA-linked foundations seem to know
who the real independents are in the U.S. In years
past, when I and associates of mine showed up at
public meetings of the Chicago office of the Roger
Baldwin Foundation of ACLU, when I asked a specific
question mentioning their funding, guess what
happened? Their then district director abruptly
adjourned the meeting which never resumed.

They knew we were CIA-foundation experts, I having
taught courses on the same at a radio broadcast
school, at student seminars at some Universities, such
as at the University of Illinois, Chicago Circle
Campus.

What would surely floor some simple-minded folks, is
that many of the better-funded so-called "liberal"
publications, such as IN THESE TIMES [headquartered in
Chicago] reportedly receive heavy funding from
foundations that they would have to be awfully stupid
not to know were either conduits or
pass-throughs [technical foundation terms] for the
American CIA.

Because of such funding that publication some years
ago made a complete U-turn regarding the October
Surprise matter, that George Herbert Walker Bush
helped work a treasonous deal in 1980, to get the
Iranians to delay the release of the 52 U.S. hostages,
enabling the Reagan/Bush ticket to wreck Jimmy
Carter's hope for re-election.

Not being able to solve the mess, Carter was perceived
as a wimp. First supporting the idea that something
bad happened, IN THESE TIMES reportedly because of
their funders, reversed themselves and apparently
condemned some of the more independent-minded whistle
blowers. Just another story suppressed by the liars
and whores of the press.
