And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. —Ephesians 5:11-13
Scaife's funding activities actually began in 1962, when he gave several grants to various organizations, including the American Bar Association's Fund for Public Education allegedly for "education against communism." Of course, the American Bar Association is funded by quislings like Bill Gates, Apple, Carnegie Foundation and all the other usual suspects, and they are supporting and promoting Bush 41's 'Rule of Law' for world government based on sustainability. Can you say fascism? [Link]. "Education against communism," is a joke with these NWO funders. Check out the American Bar Association's very edited article from their interview with Agenda 21 expert, Rosa Koire, and I'm sure you'll get the picture of just who Scaife was funding! Here is Rosa's actual taped interview, much of which was deleted and skewed by the interviewer.
The total of Richard Mellon Scaife's giving—to neo-conservatives as well as many other beneficiaries—exceeds $600 million, or $1.4 billion in current dollars, much more than any previous estimate.
Let's take a look at a few of the top organizations this so-called "conservative," Richard Mellon Scaife, has funded both past and present.
According to campaignmoney.com, from 1999 through 2006, Scaife has (as his personal donations), under the name "R. Scaife," made 10 contributions of over $200 to political campaigns, for a total of $19,000. Under the name "R.M. Scaife" he made 4 donations, for a total of $22,000. Under the name Richard Scaife, he made 23 donations over this period, for a total of $142,904. Besides donations to the Republican National Committee and various political campaigns such as Santorum 2000 and the Santorum Victory Committee for neo-con, Rick Santorum, he has also supported Political Action Committees such as the Pro-Growth Action Team, the Free Congress PAC (formerly: Committee For the Survival Of a Free Congress, which was founded by Paul Weyrich), and the Club For Growth Inc. PAC. His various foundations make much larger contributions. Let's take a look at Club For Growth...
Club for Growth
Stephen Moore was the founder of Club for Growth, and he is now chief economist at the Heritage Foundation and was the former Wall Street Journal editorial writer who championed tax cuts. WSJ is owned by CFR member Rupert Murdoch and Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal who owns 7%. Moore has been paid to promote policies for the Koch funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP), owned by David Koch, who is a member of the globalist Aspen Institute. Please see my 2011 article on AFP. Aspen Institute's former director was none other than Maurice Strong, of UN Agenda 21 fame. Moore is also an American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) "scholar" as of 2011. On August 4th, 2011, he spoke at a Shell Oil-sponsored plenary session of the 38th Annual ALEC Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, along with fellow ALEC "scholar" Arthur B. Laffer.
Club for Growth's partners and allies include the Peter G. Peterson Foundation. Peterson is chairman emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations and former chairman of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. Another ally is the US Chamber of Commerce, who is so behind the invasion of illegal aliens on our southern borders. [Link] See Erica Carle's short three-part article, "Who is in Charge of the New World Order?" about the Chamber of Commerce.
Joseph Farah and Western Journalism Center
Most every conservative with a computer knows of CNP member Joseph Farah's World Net Daily, but not everyone knows that originally, Joe Farah founded Western Journalism Center (WJC) after having worked for a short time for one of Richard Scaife's newspapers. Farah worked for six years as executive news editor at the Los Angeles Herald Examiner. Then, in July of 1990, Farah became editor of the Sacramento Union after Richard Mellon Scaife had sold it to Daniel Benvenuti Jr. and David Kassis. The paper continued to lose money. After leaving the Sacramento Union in 1991, Joseph Farah and former Union publisher, James Smith, founded the Western Journalism Center -- under whose aegis Farah later founded World Net Daily. Farah apparently now fully owns WJC.
In 1994-1995, during the Clinton years, WJC accepted $330,000 in donations from then-Clinton-hater, Richard Mellon Scaife. The funds came from a Scaife controlled foundation. Most likely this was done in the effort to gain support in exposing the Clintons. Other conservative foundations contributed as well -- and it went dormant as soon as Clinton left office, but has now returned with another Democrat in our White House.
Here is the 2012-990 for WJC, and you'll notice Floyd Brown is the President, and Farah's fellow CNP member, Gary Kreep, is their general council. Farah claims he is against any Constitutional Convention, but several years ago, he allowed Gary Kreep to write an article in WND which claimed the recalls for a Con-Con from twelve states may not be valid. Why would Farah, who allegedly is against a Con-Con, allow Kreep to state in a WND article that each state's attorney general needs to validate the recalls and then they need to be sent to Eric Holder for final validation. What does he think Eric Holder would say? Here is the full story Gary Kreep's article in WND.
Scaife was also the major backer of The American Spectator, whose Arkansas Project set out to find facts about Clinton and in which Paula Jones' accusations of sexual harassment against Clinton were first widely publicized. The American Spectator is a monthly magazine covering news and politics, edited by R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. Other major funding came from the pro-school choice Bradley Foundation.
In 1996, according to Citizens for Honest Government (CHG) records, CNP member and CHG founder, Pat Matrisciana, and Christopher Ruddy, who was then a reporter for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, a newspaper owned by Richard Mellon Scaife, "maintained a joint bank account in the name of Jeremiah Productions, now Jeremiah Films, that made modest payments to critics of the president." Additionally, "internal records of Jeremiah Productions" obtained by Murray Waas of Salon Magazine, showed that, as of September 1997, "the bank account controlled by Matrisciana and Ruddy had 'total assets of $3.069 million and no liabilities.
Despite Scaife's seeming hatred of the Clintons and his funding of Western Journalism Center, The American Spectator, and Christopher Ruddy's Newsmax, the latter two who targeted the Clintons with both truth and lies, Scaife turned around and on April 20, 2008, two days before Pennsylvania's presidential primary, Scaife's Pittsburgh Tribune Review endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Scaife also worked with Bill Clinton on his so-called "Clinton Global Initiative," or CGI. CGI is a non-partisan organization that convenes global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. Each year, CGI hosts an Annual Meeting in September, scheduled to coincide with the U.N. General Assembly.
Throughout the year, CGI helps its members – primarily corporations, NGOs, and government leaders to bring about change. (None of which freedom loving Americans would like.) Ruddy told The New York Times he and Scaife had changed their views on the Clintons. "Both of us have had a rethinking. Clinton wasn't such a bad president. In fact, he was a pretty good president in a lot of ways, and Dick feels that way today."
In July 2012, Ruddy was a member of the official delegation that accompanied President Clinton on his five-nation tour of Africa, reviewing Clinton Foundation initiatives in the area of health care, HIV/AIDS programs, education and poverty alleviation.
During the delegation’s visit to Maputo, Mozambique, Ruddy blogged for the Clinton Foundation website, “The Clinton Foundation demonstrates that public-private partnerships and strategic engagement of private citizens, community members, and local governments can achieve great results in health care. And as I saw firsthand today in Mozambique, this work is innovative in its scope and in its purpose – which is to ensure governments can own and maintain their own health care systems without further reliance on aid. I applaud the Clinton Foundation for bringing together groups and individuals from all sides of the political spectrum to build a world that’s more equal, more sustainable, and that benefits us all."
Sounds to me like he's now fully on board and in bed with Clinton initiatives.
Richard Mellon Scaife spread his monies around to a variety of organizations and enterprises. It would take a book to cover them all, but in Part 13, we'll look at a few more of the neo-conservative groups he funded.
