  • John Kerry and his anti-American IPS playmates

    Brookes News (Australia) ^ | 23 August 2004 | Gerard Jackson
    In the mid-80s the Senate Subcommittee on Narcotics, Terrorism and International Operations was set up with John Kerry's help. What became known as the "John Kerry Committee" quickly became a vicious means of opposing President Reagan's policy of ridding Central America of Marxist-Leninist thugs. Leaks from the committee charged that there was a CIA/Contra operation running drugs into the US. The leaks were clearly designed to subvert Reagan's anti-communist policies in the region by linking the CIA with drug-running. (Incidentally, John Kerry and his pals never examined Castro's drug-trafficking activities). There was no doubt at the time that leaks were...

    Only on a panel sponsored by the Campaign for America's Future.Boston"ARE YOU ALL READY TO TAKE BACK AMERICA?" Robert Borosage, the co-director of Campaign for America's Future, asked on Wednesday, standing in front of an enthusiastic crowd at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge. And the crowd sure was ready. They hooted and hollared. They roared and screamed. They nodded their heads vigorously. The day before, Michael Moore had stopped by. On Wednesday, Reps. Dennis Kucinich and Barbara Lee, former senator Gary Hart, and Ambassador Joe Wilson took the stage.The occasion was a debate on the Iraq war, which may...

    The American Thinker ^ | 5/26/04 | Douglas Hanson
    The latest retired general to voice his concerns over the strategy to topple Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq has been Anthony Zinni.  Naturally, the good general has co-authored a book with (surprise!) Tom Clancy, criticizing the war with Iraq.  The anti-Semitic undercurrent of the general’s interview on 60 minutes is discussed at length in Richard Baehr’s excellent piece  in The American Thinker.  Most Americans know that Gen. Zinni was the former Commanding General of CENTCOM, but few know his previous military background in that theater of operations, nor do they completely understand his current political leanings on the subject of...

    Stop the FTAA ^ | William F. Jasper
    This is the second installment in a series of articles looking at the forces behind the scenes propelling us toward globalization through NAFTA, the FTAA and the WTO.‘‘The Battle of Seattle." That is the common name given to the World Trade Organization (WTO) Ministerial conference of November 30-December 3, 1999, where a 1960s-style generation of political street rioting was born anew. Images of tear gas, burning cars, chanting mobs, baton-wielding riot police, frightened diplomats, and millions of dollars in damage were left indelibly on the minds of those who viewed the footage on the nightly news. What started as...

    Today I noticed that Condoleezza Rice was being criticized by Leslie Gelb: Friends, Foes Say Rice Has Spirit, Toughness She'll Need for Sept. 11 TestimonyAt the same time, Leslie Gelb, president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, who has known Rice for two decades, says he has seen a stiffening in her philosophical approach over the years.Gelb's name rang a bell, and upon searching I discovered Gelb was responsible for hiring Richard Clarke to the State Department: Clarke Known As Abrasive but EfficientLeslie Gelb, who hired Clarke for his first State Department job in 1979Now Gelb has also been...
  • "Charitable" Foundations: ATMs for the Left

    03/02/2004 6:40:01 AM PST · by areafiftyone · 14 replies · 748+ views
    One of the unlamented developments of this election year is the Democratic Party’s retreat to the Left. Although the media claim the party's voters have learned their lesson by settling for the “electable” John F. Kerry, a cursory examination of the Democrats shows they remain animated by anti-Bush furor. The party rank-and-file may have decided they prefer the sing-song cadences of John Kerry or the charming drawl of John Edwards to the red-faced shrieks of Howard Dean, but the message spread by the party faithful will remain the same: George W. Bush is a “liar,” a “betrayer,” a “war criminal”...

    "The Nation-State Is Finished" by William F. Jasper Robert Bartley, a closet one-worlder at the WSJ, used his newspaper’s "conservative" clout to seduce American business leaders into sacrificing U.S. sovereignty for trade. ‘‘What in blazes can President Bush be thinking?" That has been the general response — on talk radio and in media surveys, Internet postings and letters-to-the-editor — of many current and former Bush supporters angered and confused by the president’s immigration proposals. These folks would not have been surprised by the president’s outrageous announcement on January 7 or his remarks the following week at the Summit of the...

    "Covert Cadre: Inside the Institute for Policy Studies" | 1987 | S. Steven Powell
    Hi, all--long-time lurker trying to post my first thread here, so please bear with me if I screw up the formatting or post this in the wrong place :) I've seen threads discussing Kerry's pro-Sandinista stance during the Reagan administration, but didn't notice this particular piece of information, which I thought worth passing on. This is from S. Stephen Powell's "Covert Cadre", an expose of the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), a pro-Soviet/pro-Cuban think tank founded in the 1960s which was funded by the KGB and linked to the Black Panthers, the leaking of the Pentagon Papers, the Church Committee,...

    (Participating was Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, Deputy Director for Coalition Operations and Daniel Senor, Senior Adviser, CPA.) MR. SENOR: Good evening. I just have a brief item on Ambassador Bremer's schedule. Then General Kimmitt will make an opening statement and provide a short video presentation, and then we will be happy to take your questions. As far as Ambassador Bremer is concerned, earlier today he traveled down to Basra for a meeting with Prime Minister Blair, in which he briefed Prime Minister Blair on recent CPA activities and an update on the political process and other matters. Prime Minister Blair,...

    9/11: will Congress blame the FBI & CIA instead of itself and the IPS? Gerard Jackson BrookesNews.Com Wednesday 23 July 2003 It very much looks like the congressional report on 9/11, to be released this week, will be a damning indictment of the FBI, or so says Newsweek. The report will reveal that the FBI failed to "aggressively investigate evidence of Al Qaeda's presence in the United States" and that the agency's laxity contributed to the success of the terrorist attack After the World Trade Center atrocity people immediately wanted to know what the FBI had been doing. Why hadn't...

    Bush targeted by leftist 'intelligence professionals' Gerard Jackson BrookesNews.Com Monday 21 July 2003 A group calling itself the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity sent President Bush a letter demanding that Cheney resign over the issue of Saddam's WMDs. Now who or what is VIPS? This is a question that many have been asking. The answer is simple. It is a front for the notorious Marxist-Leninist Washington-based IPS (Institute for Policy Studies). This is what Brian Crozier (a highly respected commentator on intelligence matters and a fellow of the prestigious Institute for the Study of Conflict) had to say about the...
  • Why does Ralph 'the Red' Nader support Arafat's terrorism?

    BrookesNews.Com ^ | 27 June 2003 | James Henry
    "I'm shocked! Shocked!", exclaimed the cynical Captain Louis Renault, but only after the gallant Major Heinrich Strasser alerted him to the depraved goings on in the backroom of Rick's Café. Nader's public support for Arafat's terrorism elicited a very Renault-like response from some members of the mainstream-media. But anyone who has examined, if only briefly, St Ralph’s history will know just how extreme his leftwing politics really are: and the extreme left is deeply hostile to Israel's existence. Once you have grasped that fact, it becomes plain why, despite the evidence, he blames Israel for terrorist outrages while ignoring the...

    MRC ^ | Tuesday, February 18, 2003 | BrentBaker
    The Institute for Policy Studies is a far-left, Washington, DC-based outfit, but on Friday morning its anti- liberation of Iraq expert on the subject went unlabeled by both CBS News and CNN. When Phyllis Bennis of IPS appeared on Friday's The Early Show with Susan Sarandon to publicize the weekend's protest marches, Harry Smith, MRC analyst Brian Boyd noticed, identified Bennis simply as a "foreign policy expert." A bit later on CNN, Maria Hinojosa set up a segment: "Joining me to talk about why they are anti-war activists are Phyllis Bennis, who is with the Institute for Policy Studies, and...

    Fiedor Report On the News #296 ^ | 11-17-02 | Doug Fiedor
    Last Thursday, House Democrats elected Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as House Minority Leader. Pelosi won the minority leader position on a 177-29 vote. That is, only 29 House Democrats voted against her. Clearly, 177 agree with her positions. This is a very important point. Because, now we can define, specifically, what the House Democrats are and what they stand for. Money is the life-blood of politics. Like Hillary in the Senate, Pelosi capitalized on that. In so doing, Pelosi bought her position within the Democratic Party. According to, Pelosi set up her own PAC and quickly became a major...
