    Why would anyone truly interested in liberty, care what the Rockefeller-funded, Reverend Moon-connected neocon Heritage Foundation had to say about anything ?

    “Paul Weyrich is considered by conservative Powers That Be as the most powerful man in American politics today. Weyrich allegedly founded the immensely influential conservative think tank, Heritage Foundation, in 1973 with funding from Joseph Coors of the Coors beer empire and Richard Mellon-Scaife, heir of the Carnegie-Mellon fortune. (2)

    Over the past 25 years, Heritage has also been funded by private foundations such as Pew Charitable Trust which also funded many GOALS 2000 initiatives. William Greider’s bestseller, Who Will Tell the People: The Betrayal of American Democracy reveals other benefactors: “Not withstanding its role as ‘populist’ spokesman, Weyrich’s organization, for instance, has received grants from Amoco, General Motors, Chase Manhattan Bank [David Rockefeller] and right-wing foundations like Olin and Bradley.” (3)

    The 1975 Congressional investigation of the Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA) activities in the U.S. noted a connection between Heritage and the Rev. Sun Myung Moon. ….

    Heritage was referred to as a “shadow government,” which is of interest because of an article Weyrich wrote. He was also founder of ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council which writes many of the bills for state legislatures). The danger in the ALEC organization is that its leadership apparently wants to rewrite our Constitution and they claim a membership of 2,500 plus of our 7,500 legislators. Members of ALEC include the Church of Scientology. One must also remember that Heritage endorsed NAFTA and GATT/WTO
