In July 2005 Goodman spoke as a panelist at the so-called Congressional Briefing on 9/11 cohosted by Cythina McKinney. There he endorsed McKinney’s conspiracy theories blaming the US for 9/11 by saying, “I hope someday her views will be considered conventional wisdom.”

I used to consider these people half nuts. I see I was wrong by half and they are fully insane.

Fedora, you're work represents the best of Free Republic and your research is invaluable. You might want to send this to David Horowitz; he maintains a web site that keeps track of relationships and connections.

Fedora,

Do you have all your previous FR research threads that you made marked? I would strongly request that you mark them on your FR profile page or your bookmark links.

I know I've missed reading a few of them.

And THANK YOU for all this work.

Thanks for working on exposing these subversives.

Are you familiar with the book: Covert Cadre: Inside the Institute for Policy Studies, S Steven Powell, 1987?

It has an introduction by David Horowitz, and is hair-raising reading.

These people are pro-communism and the fall of the Soviet Union has not dampened their devotion to their cause.

From the chapter titled LOBBYING:

The Center for International Policy (CIP) was formed in 1975 by Lindsay Mattison, with Orlando Letelier's help, as another "human rights" research/lobbying organization. Like the IPA spinoff Center for National Security Studies, which focused on the intelligence agencies, CIP operates under the aegis of the Fund for Peace, with support from the Rubin Foundation, the Ruth Mott Fund, and the Stern Fund. Donald Ranard, a disaffected State Department official and friend of Orlando Letelier, is CIP's director and William Goodfellow its deputy director. Susan Weber, an early staff member, was previously registered under the Foreign Agents Registtration Act as an employee of the Soviet embassy to copyedit Soviet Life.

CIP has focused much of its effort on stopping financial institutions, like the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the International Monetary Fund, from aiding Latin American countries friendly to the United States.

Although CIP's energies are not exclusively spent on Latin America, it is an important part of the Latin network. CIP's prospectus says that "the Center has been informing the press, the public, and members of Congress about the implication of U S foreign policy towards developing countries with special emphasis on the relationship of U S economic and military assistance to the status of human rights...."

A theme CIP frequently plays is that Latin America's problems are really the fault of the United States. For instance, the introduction to William Biddle's CIP paper on Nicaragua states that "basic U S interests are more threatened by the customary American response to radical governments than by the governments themselves." Likewise, on the Grenadan crisis, CIP fellow W Frick Curry wrote, "In the final analysis, the greatest threat to American citizens was caused by violence precipitated by the [U S] invasion itself." Despite its overt bias, CIP avers that"the press corps and Congressional leaders and staffs have found the Center's bimonthly International Policy Report useful in getting a fresh look at the problems of aid and repression." pp 236-237

*****

All punctuation is in the book, and all quotes are endnoted.

The tentacles of these organizations have had thirty years to entwine themselves firmly in every government agency. Every time they fail to cripple President Bush, they do something even more radical. We have to train ourselves to prepare for more "asymmetric warfare" from the Left.

"Conclusion
From Vietnam to Chile, Central America, and Iraq, William Goodfellow’s career has been characterized by a lineage of left-wing groups waging a series of propaganda offensives against US foreign policy. This psychological warfare campaign--to label it by a name that underscores its military function and unmasks its “pacifist” facade--has been coordinated with liberal academics, government whistleblowers, disgruntled military and intelligence veterans, and sympathetic reporters. And so we find that when we pull back the covers on William Goodfellow, we get a revealing glimpse of who’s in bed with the Washington Post."

I can remember my Mother complaining about a huge east coast communist cabal that took our victory away in Nam, drove President Nixon out of office, enabled an unknown commy peanut farmer from Georgia to be elected president and tried to sabotage President Reagan before he was sworn in and for his full 8 years as a great president. A lot of people thought that she was a rightwing whacko, who had flipped out. This documentation shows that she was right on target.

99% of the driveby MSM shooting at President Bush and his people has probably come from Goodfellows Bedfellows up to the current treason by the NY Slimes. The Plame/Wilson BS came from this group, and they should be arrested for an attempted coup of our government.

Back in the 1960 to 2000, we had no way of hearing about this thanks to the stranglehold the left wing MSM had on tv, radio, the dinosaur fish wraps.

Today the MSM has been severely weakened by the power of truth from talk radio, Fox News at times and the internet.

Having lived through this era, my stomach knotted up as I read the names, most of which I had forgotten and what they did to this country.


Now for a shameless plug for Free Republic. All of us need to be monthly donors or quarterly donors to keep Free Republic alive and viable to battle these evil bastards with the truth. Please support Free Republic.

In a large part, that is EXACTLY the problem...

The intertwined incestuous relationships of the left cannot be explained in a siomple, one paragraph explanation. Anything more than that causes folks eyes to cross....

A GREAT site for simplified explanations of who is who on the left is "Discoverthenetwork"

Bravo, simply superb Fedora.
As FGS already said your research shows what many have suspected, for years.
It took your exhaustive work to validate all those suspicions though.
My hat's off to you, Sir. ;^)

I found the flow chart (another poster made possible) quite interesting, also.
Interesting by the name(s) the didn't appear, and not for the reasons one might suspect.

Clinton & his co-conspirator female Senatorial accomplice are, of course, who I am referring to.
The absence of either of their names linking them -- anywhere -- to the list of scoundrels perhaps proves just what a sock puppet/stooge he really was.
And how very sly the august senator from New York really is by keeping her name clear of this kind of *association* even though she's up to her naval in all manner of of this crap, what used to be called sedition?
I've a notion you've thoughts of your own concerning the apparent lack of a link also, huh. {g}

In any event, now what to do with this information??
That's what I'm wondering, Fedora.

This WP group's merely one Liberal-Socialist America-hating clique infesting the Republic's media, among many.
There is after all the New York Slimes, The Associated Quislings, Reuters et al ad infinitum all needing a little revealing of their own.
Plus let us not forget the slew of networks to be accounted for, too.

All have a sordid story of their own to explain their *personal* connection to the Liberal-Socialist conspiracy, of that we can be sure.

For you & others such as yourself, people possessed of the uncanny ability to connect-the-dots, it spells "Job Security" like nothing else can.

Your work revealing this group of disgusting bottom feeders is exemplary, simply beautiful.
This Bud's for you, my friend. ;^)

...thanks for the ping, FGS. ;^)

...thanks for the ping, FGS.

The pleasure is all mine ol' man; trust all's well? This was such a wonderful piece of work relating to one our friends in the faux press, I didn't want you to miss it. And I agree, the same amount of sleuthing into the innards of the rest would likely expose similar connections.

As far as what to do with the information??? Same as we've been doing for the last what, six or seven years.....spread it as far and wide as we possibly can. Trouble is, it probably can't be condensed much further than it already is. Given the exhaustive biliography, this indeed appears to be a Cliff's Notes version. The upshot; many people that should and need to read and digest it never will. A conundrum if there ever was one.

Good to "see" you again.

FGS

Thanks for sharing your mother's views and your own recollections on that. I think there was a group of IPS/New Left associates involved in some of that during the period between Watergate and Reagan. From what I've seen many of them tended to converge around Walter Mondale during the Church Committee era and Carter administration, and again during Mondale's 1984 campaign. We see some of these same folks resurfacing in the Clinton administration and the Kerry campaign.

What to do with the information is a good question worth some serious thought. Here I have mainly tried to collect some data, offer some limited analysis of certain aspects of a very large topic, and include documentation. Putting this information in useful form is another task that will take some more planning and work. I think flowcharts like those posted in some of the follow-up discussion to the article can help with that task. I would have preferred doing something like that to the "arrow" charts I ended up using here, but for a number of reasons that didn't work out. Regarding the Clintons' role in this stuff, I think there are a lot of Clinton links to some of the IPS- and Hayden-associated figures mentioned here, and some of that might be filled in by tracking the continuity between the New Left, the Church Committee, Hayden's 1976 Senate campaign, the Mondale wing of the Carter administration, Mondale's 1984 campaign, and some of Clinton's appointments. There is a ton of excellent information Alamo-Girl's site that would be very interesting to integrate with some of this other stuff.

Sorry, I did not see Covert Cadre when I was looking at your references. I wonder what happened to Powell after writing this book. He did such comprehensive work, and never seems to have published anything else.

I've wondered about that, too. Someone who knew his publisher commented on a thread here once and I asked if there were any plans to update the book, but unfortunately there weren't. The dust jacket of Covert Cadre mentions he was working on a book on economics at that time, so maybe he shifted his attention to that.

Found this on a quick Google search. I don't know anything about the origin of the website, but some of the comments in this review will make you smile.
PS: Sorry, my /i did not 'take' in my previous post.

http://www.namebase.org/books18.html

ELITES/POLITICAL/LEFT


Powell, S.Steven. Covert Cadre: Inside the Institute for Policy Studies. Ottawa IL: Green Hill Publishers, 1987. 469 pages.

Historically, the U.S. Left has done a better job of investigating the U.S. Right than vice-versa, but this is one book that attempts to reverse the trend. The material on IPS is unimportant; the organization is no longer influential. When Powell spends some pages attempting to show significant links between IPS and Soviet KGB-diplomats stationed in DC, it even gets slightly ridiculous. The book is valuable for other reasons -- it represents the best available compilation (over 600 names) of material on elitist Left personalities, organizations, and funding sources during the late 1970s and 1980s. "Elitist" refers mainly to those who are active on the national or international level as opposed to grass-roots organizing. But if you apply to these foundations for project support without being a member of their old-boy-girl network, the word begins to assume its more usual connotations as well. To keep matters in perspective, remember that funding for the Left was only a tiny fraction of the tax-deductible support that flowed into neocon coffers during the 1980s.
Scott Steven Powell had a tremendous amount of research assistance from Rightist groups and individuals, beginning with an obscure outfit in DC called the National Journalism Center. He was last spotted in 1989 as a Media Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.
