Teresa Heinz Kerry, Drummond Pike and the Communist TIDES FOUNDATION
Capital Research ^ | 03.04.04

Posted on 03/04/2004 10:03:38 PM PST by Coleus

Money. Money is to the Tides Foundation and Center what water is to the tide. You can’t be sure from what source any part comes. You can’t be sure where any part goes. But it can knock you off your feet and pull you down. And there is an ocean of it. 

The Tides Foundation and its offspring, the Tides Center, effectively “launder” donor dollars when they give to other nonprofits. The San Francisco-based Foundation receives donations from individuals and foundations and then channels them to activist groups. The result is that the original donor can’t be linked to the ultimate recipient. According to the most recent available IRS form 990, the Tides Foundation received $86.1 million in grants, gifts and other contributions in 2001. It gave away over $76 million. Since it was established in 1976, the Foundation has given away over $300 million in grants. (Total 2001 income was $93.2 million; the Foundation had assets of more than $156 million.) 

The Tides Center, established in 1979, has been legally separate from the Foundation since 1996. It helps manage the legal, accounting and other administrative aspects of start-up political advocacy “projects.” In effect, it shelters activists and their fledgling organizations under the umbrella of its own nonprofit tax-exempt status. 

In theory, the Foundation raises and grants money, while the Center manages projects and organizations. A legal firewall divides the two organizations and keeps their functions separate. In fact, each does both. The Foundation awards grants to groups, including groups not managed by the Center, that are promoting a kaleidoscope of liberal issues. 

· environmental extremism
· exclusion of humans from
  public and private wildlands
· anti-war protest
· opposition to free trade
· banning firearms ownership
· abolition of the death penalty
· abortion rights
· gay, lesbian, bisexual and
  transgender advocacy 

As the epicenter of a large financial operation that collects and disperses millions of dollars to left-wing activist groups, the Tides Foundation and Tides Center are uniquely influential within the liberal movement.  Many policy projects established by the Foundation and managed by the Center are eventually spun-off as independent nonprofit organizations. In addition, Tides founder Drummond Pike has set up several for-profit companies. They donate a percentage of their profits to Tides and collaborate with Tides-affiliated nonprofits. 

Here are a few notable nonprofits started, managed or funded by Tides: the Natural Resources Defense Council, Greenpeace, Union of Concerned Scientists, Environmental Working Group and the Ruckus Society. The Tides Foundation continues to fund many of these groups, which are in the forefront of left-wing activism.

I might be wrong about this, but I think the Tides also helps fund the Violence Policy Center -- the gun-grabbing group of pinkos that floated that phony AWB renewal survey ostensibly sponsored by the Family Consumer group used by the gun-grabbers in the Senate a few days ago. Do a google on Naomi Seligman and you'll see the connection.

If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but I won't apologize.

They are also financing the whining survivors of 9/11 who hate president Bush and want Americans to forget about 9/11.

To Grampa Dave | 03/05/2004 2:15:12 PM PST sent




Thanks to DeBug=int13 for providing these links and the reality of these scumbags.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1091052/posts?
page=96#96



And who is this survivors group "9-11 families for a Peaceful Tomorrow"?

Aww - phooey on them -

The real name of the outfit is September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows

And from all appearances it is a fund-raising front for the Tides Center (EIN 94-3213100) of San Francisco - and "Peaceful Tomorrows" doesn't try to hide that they are affiliated on their contribute page. I know some Freepers are familiar with the Tides Center, and for those who are not, it is a non-profit organization that rakes in fairly big bucks ($63+ mill in FY 2002, which included $5+ mill in Government grants) to distribute out grants and allocations to various and sundry "social" projects and causes, with left-wing groups getting decent cuts of the action - they consistently lay out a good bit of change to anti-second amendment groups, for instance. September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows doesn't appear to be necessarily autonomous from the Tides Center. Interestingly, the P.O. box listed on the "Peaceful Tomorrows" site shares the same location address and zip in the neighborhood with such notable organizations as The New Formulation: an Anti-Authoritarian Review of Books (a biannual journal examining the value of recent publications to the development of contemporary anarchist theory and politics), Institute for Anarchist Studies, Radical Magick (an "Eclectic Ceremonial Based Magick Group"), South Asian AIDS Action, Lesbian and Gay Labor Network, Dyke Action Machine! or DAM! - not that there's anything wrong with that (in Jerry Seinfeld voice). The Fellowship of Reconciliation website that is also mentioned on "Peaceful Tomorrows" contribute page says it all - offices in Wash. DC and also San Francisco.

Though they may splash New York this and New York that all around, "Peaceful Tomorrows" is created and based in Oakland California, founded and directed by Barry Amundson and sister-in-law Kelly Campbell, with the web technical matters being handled by Steve Simitzis of Saturn5 Productions in San Francisco, which has an apparent mission statement of providing web consulting and "hosting for artists, online communities, activist organizations"


Amundson is Designer and IT manager for the San Francisco branch of Fenton Communications, a "public interest communications" company that has offices in Washington DC, New York NY and San Francisco.

They have a rather interesting list of clientele that include -

MoveOn.org
People For the American Way
Nelson Mandela - Presidential Election
Greenpeace
Ben and Jerry's
Rock the Vote (which is also a "top five" paid contractor for the Tides Center)

Can probe here for the whole listing.





Here's a bit from lengthy LA Times article about what they do and the crowd they hang with - I think the Moderators won't have a cow over this excerpt -

October 1, 2002
Operation: Peace
Antiwar movement reflects a different America than in past eras, but diverse allies keep the spirit alive.
By REED JOHNSON, TIMES STAFF WRITER


"We want to poison your mind," teases the woman with slate-colored hair outside First Baptist Church in Koreatown. Swathed in natural fibers and sporting an anti-Dubya button, she's minding a table piled high with books, pamphlets and stickers decrying the sorry state of the planet--wars, corporate malfeasance, environmental disasters-in-the-making, and so on--along with half a dozen copies of the revolutionary rabble-rousings of Chairman Mao.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

But the rally's emotional climax occurred when Kelly Campbell and Barry Amundson, members of September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, a group composed of relatives of 9/11 victims, embraced beneath a giant video screen where images of the burning twin towers had flashed by moments earlier. Barry Amundson, 32, is the brother of Craig Amundson, a 28-year-old Army multimedia specialist who was killed when the hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon; Campbell is his sister-in-law. Both were in Los Angeles to voice their conviction that the response to last year's attacks on New York and Washington shouldn't be more mangled bodies and grieving relatives.


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The more I read of what the Tides has funded in the past and in this political campaign, the more I think that Kerry's wife is more dangerous to our survival.

She hates America and our culture with a true passion.

The Tides Foundation continues to fund many of these groups, which are in the forefront of left-wing activism.

This is just plain wrong. I have been writing about Tides for over two years. The Tides Foundation was organized in 1976. They are primarily funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts (Sunoco money).

NRDC was organized in 1970, predating Tides, and is far more influential. NRDC doesn't need organizational help from anybody.

GreenPIECE was founded in 1971, also predating Tides. They don't need Tides to money or organizational help to survive either.

The Union of Concerned Scientists was founded in 1969, also predating Tides.

EWG and the Ruckus Society are Tides projects.

Get your facts straight before posting, please.

The information was from a group called capital research (the link was posted), I suggest you write to them and prove them wrong. And please post their response.

You show no evidence at all, no 990's nothing, refuting the claim that the tides foundation does not "fund" and of these organizations and I saw no references in your book (only 7 hits to the word foundation) backing up what you said regarding that the tides foundation does not "contribute" to the aforementioned foundations and NGO's.

I'm sorry you are wrong and offered no proof.

Nice dodge, but it won't work. Here is what you posted:

"Here are a few notable nonprofits started, managed or funded by Tides":

"Started, managed, or funded by," clearly implies that Tides supposedly played a seminal role in the startup, operation, and funding of the listed organizations. They didn't. A good many of those organizations existed before Tides was even founded. Sure Tides launders money from their contributors (primarily Pew) and I never said that they didn't, but Tides isn't a critical source for any but the EWG and the Ruckus Society and even then they primarily launder money from donors not wishing to be directly associated with the recipients.

So you come back saying that I hadn't proven that Tides hadn't made donations, when that doesn't address what I had said in response to your post! Your response lacks integrity.

As far as sources refuting your contentions are concerned, here is what Drummond Pike says about their history;

By the end of 1981, Tides Foundation stepped into full independence and rented offices with Lyman Casey's Bothin Helping Fund - all 1.75 FTEs of us.

So here we have what you tell us was a foundation capable of helping GreenPIECE or the NRDC get started when it didn't even have TWO full time employees until the 1980s.

I already posted an example, with a link for you about the NRDC that you clearly didn't read in its entirety. That post lists the top sources of NRDC funding over the last ten years (with a source link). Tides isn't even in the top thirty of the list of NRDC's contributors.

Here is ,a href="http://www.nrdc.org/media/default.asp">what the NRDC says about their origins at the bottom of every single press release they publish:

The Natural Resources Defense Council is a national, nonprofit organization of scientists, lawyers and environmental specialists dedicated to protecting public health and the environment. Founded in 1970, NRDC has more than 1 million members and e-activists nationwide, served from offices in New York, Washington, Santa Monica and San Francisco.

As for GreenPIECE you can simply go to their site, thusly. It says:

In fact, the nuclear weapons threat is what prompted the international organization to be founded in 1971.

I'm not going to bother doing any more of your homework on the rest of those organizations for you when the facts are that easy to find.

My book only references Tides in terms of their participation in the coho listing on the West Coast as proof that I have been writing about them for some time. It doesn't go into their funding. If you don't think I've been writing about Tides for some time, or that I am a credible source, ask Grampa Dave; sauropod; farmfriend; sasquatch; forester; marsh2...

I suggest everyone click on your link and read the section titled, "Foundations Wash Cash Through Tides." If it weren't in Acrobat format I would cut and paste.

Also, in the section titled, "Funding Anti-war Groups," the article states that the Tides Foundation provides funds to Moveon.org and other such groups.

Another note: The Tides Center manages The Youth Gender Project whose purpose is to empower and support transgender and gender variant, inter-sexed and gender-questioning youth and young adults. It focuses on persons who work with or make decisions about the lives of young people, ie teachers, youth leaders and parents. It's based in Berkeley.

Hmm. No bias here.

My take on this post is that Tides is obviously laundering money for liberal causes and actively supporting the anti-Bush policy lobby. The link between Tides, Kerry and Peaceful Tomorrows (whose members have been all over the news shows) should at least be acknowledged. I, for one don't believe the majority of family members of the 9/11 victims are offended by the new Bush ads.

are you pinging your cheerleading squad?

In post 19 you tried to refute the capital research center's statement in post 1, here it is:

Here are a few notable nonprofits started, managed or funded by Tides: the Natural Resources Defense Council, Greenpeace, Union of Concerned Scientists, Environmental Working Group and the Ruckus Society. The Tides Foundation continues to fund many of these groups, which are in the forefront of left-wing activism.

started, managed OR funded by tides, your tirade in post 19 went to say the article stated that the tides started these SRO's. It didn't say that, the word OR was used where they stated that the tides f. managed, started OR funded these, I believe them and NOT YOU!

You are NO expert and never showed any evidence backing up your statement that the tides f. did nor did not fund such organizations, you showed no proof, no form 990's, nothing.

Please, next time notice a sentence and see if the word OR is used, they did not say the tides f. started greenpeace, they stated that the tides f. either managed OR donated to such NGO's.

I will trust the capital research center rather than you.
http://www.capitalresearch.org/
they seem to be more organized and resourceful than you.
http://www.capitalresearch.org/about/
and they seem to have much more people who know what they are talking about than you
http://www.capitalresearch.org/about/bios.asp

And I'll say it again, get off your high horse and write Terrence Scanlon, President, Capital Research Center (whose .pdf research paper I posted in thread 1) and tell him how wrong he is since you are the self-appointed expert in this field writng about the Tides Foundation for two whole years. And please post his response to you admitting his research is wrong on this thread, thank you. I am not going to hold my breath since the capital resarch center is in a league above you and are probably right with the information described in their research paper in post 1.

He's also one of the most pompous and arrogant too, his big head preceeds himself.

(From Post 19
Get your facts straight before posting, please.)

He has a problem reading the Enlish Language since the paragraph posted below (from post 1) NEVER STATED the TIDES FOUNDATION STARTED these organizations the word OR was used which means the Tides foundation EITHER started OR managed OR funded those agencies. He needs to be a little less critical of posters, get off his high horse and take a valium. If he didn't want to enter into a dialogue he could have kept his big mouth shut, ignored the post or freep-mailed me stating that some of the information wasn't correct.

I saw a website and thought it might be of interest to freepers. If he had a problem with it, he should have used his knowledge and contact the Capital Research Center to inform them that the facts were wrong and that he was right, He did not do that.

I trust the people of the Capital Research Center more than him. And if the Capital Research Center states that his research is right and they are wrong, I will state for the record that Carrie Okie is an expert, until then...

From post 1 "Here are a few notable nonprofits started, managed OR funded by Tides: the Natural Resources Defense Council, Greenpeace, Union of Concerned Scientists, Environmental Working Group and the Ruckus Society. The Tides Foundation continues to fund many of these groups, which are in the forefront of left-wing activism. "

Nowhere did it say in the above paragraph that the Tides Foundation STARTED Greenpeace as carrie stated in post 19. The word "OR" was used to indicate that a Group of Agencies listed was somehow influenced by the Tides Foundation by either donations, mangement OR starting. Then it stated that the "Tides Foundation continues to FUND many of those groups....."

Correct. Tides is, for the most part, a money laundering operation. You will note in Mr. Pike's historical reflections referenced above, how important it was that he had "squeaky clean books."

Like chasing after storefronts, eh?

Here's the problem: Tides is just one link in one of many funding chains. Bust Tides and the leftists set up another storefront. You will have wasted your time. Look at what Pike is paid, a lousy $50K. He's peanuts. Why not go after the source of the money? In Tides' case that's largely Pew.

Activist groups like Capital Research are all over on both "sides." They dig up stuff from others in the business and present it as if it's orginal research exposing the nexus of evil. The reality is that they're looking to stay in the news and justify donations. What gets to me is that when they scream "wolf" they end up diverting the effort to bust the real influence buyers.

Why not concentrate our efforts in supporting the people who do the original hard research? Try Ron Arnold, for instance, at the Center for the Defense of Free Enterprise, or Henry Lamb at ECO. They've done truly important work, they do credible research, and they are in real need of the support.

Sadly,our own resources pay a lot of our enemies bills.Anti-American parasites feed on our tax dollars and we're supposed to smile and ignore it.

I have been monitoring Carry Okie's work for close to 4 years now.

His data comes from the sources, and that drives the supporters of the Green Jihadists even more insane.

He has documented the Tides and their donations to fake science like the Coho non problem on the West Coast for a long time, (The Tides have funded bad science saying that there was a Coho problem thanks to farmers,ranchers, sport fishers and others). There have been so many Coho in Oregon and Washington the past 3 years that limits are up to 3 a day on non native Coho. I have had Fish and Game people chide me for releasing a non native Coho.

Anyone who supports the Tides is not a conservative and is a mole on Free Republic. Their paycheck probably depends on the Tides. The Tides has been serving a huge money laundering machine for a long time.

Teresa Heinz Kerry: Bag Lady for the Radical Left

Teresa Heinz Kerry: Bag Lady for the Radical Left

So how does Mrs. Heinz Kerry spend John Heinz's money? Just one example:

According to the G2 Bulletin, an online intelligence newsletter of WorldNetDaily, in the years between 1995-2001 she gave more than $4 million to an organization called the Tides Foundation. And what does the Tides Foundation do with John Heinz's money?

They support numerous anti-war groups, including Ramsey Clark's International Action Center. Clark has offered to defend Saddam Hussein when he's tried.

They support the Democratic Justice Fund, a joint venture of the Tides Foundation and billionaire hate-monger George Soros. The Democratic Justice Fund seeks to ease restrictions on Muslim immigration from "terrorist" states.

They support the Council for American-Islamic Relations, whose leaders are known to have close ties to the terrorist group, Hamas.

They support the National Lawyers Guild, organized as a communist front during the Cold War era. One of their attorneys, Lynne Stewart, has been arrested for helping a client, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, communicate with terror cells in Egypt. He is the convicted mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

They support the "Barrio Warriors," a radical Hispanic group whose primary goal is to return all of Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas to Mexico.

These are but a few of the radical groups that benefit, through the anonymity provided by the Tides Foundation, from the generosity of our would-be first lady, the wealthy widow of Republican senator John Heinz, and now the wife of the Democratic senator who aspires to be the 44th President of the United States.

The Tides Foundation has funded a number of the pillars of the radical legal establishment. Chief among these is the National Lawyers Guild, which began as a Communist front organization and is proud of its lineage. At its recent convention last October, the concluding speaker was Lynne Stewart, an indicted terrorist NLG lawyer  arrested for helping her client -- convicted 1993 World Trade Center bombing mastermind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman...
