CNP members from L to R: (Top) Jack McLamb, Dr. Stanley Monteith, Cliff Kincaid, Paul Craig Roberts, (Bottom) Dr. Jerome Corsi, Larry Pratt, Dr. Michael Coffman, Bob Barr.
Pictured above is just a few of the more popular names — especially among followers of the “alternative” media — who are members of the ultra-secret Council for National Policy (CNP). If you have never heard of this organization before, don’t be surprised because it’s almost never mentioned by the media, and especially not by those “big names” in the alternative media who regularly feature CNP members as guests on their show.
Established in 1981 by Tim LaHaye, an evangelical minister, author and speaker, the CNP was founded as a forum for “conservative” politicians, business leaders, members of the media, and evangelical leaders seeking to “strengthen the political right” in the United States. The group’s initial funding was provided by Rockefeller associate Nelson Bunker Hunt. Hunt and the Rockefeller family also played a leading role in the financing of the John Birch Society.
Since 1981, the CNP has been meeting in secret three times a year to set the agenda for the conservative and evangelical movement in the U.S. Its meetings are held in undisclosed locations and are off-limits to the general public and apparently the media as well. The reason for this, as claimed by the CNP, is to “allow for a free-flowing exchange of ideas,” a reason often used by other powerful and secretive elite non-governmental organizations that work to set policy from behind the scenes and outside of the so-called “democratic process.”
Because of the CNP’s secretive nature, some, including members of the CNP itself, have compared it to the slightly less secretive but more powerful Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The CNP is often viewed as the right wing’s version of the Eastern Liberal Establishment’s CFR, though when looking through the group’s roster, it doesn’t take long to find many names which are/were also members of the CFR. Surely anyone who has done their homework knows that the Left vs. Right argument is a ruse, and that whether somebody in a position of power claims to be “liberal” or “conservative” they are still — knowingly or unknowingly — working toward the furtherance of the globalist, one world agenda.
Some have said that the CNP is even more powerful than the CFR. I find this hard to believe because the CFR is part of a global network and simply the American branch of the British-based Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA), which has satellites in all commonwealth countries — ie. Canadian Institute for International Affairs, Australian Institute for International Affairs, etc. (In the US it’s called the Council on Foreign Relations because we are supposedly free from British rule… or so we think.) While there are no doubt some very powerful names involved with the CNP, and it receives its funding from some very dubious sources, it more than likely works under the auspices of the CFR and serves more of a dialectical role in the left/right paradigm, formulating propaganda for the “Christian” right, versus serving as globalist policy makers which truly do control both sides of the political game and have a global influence (like the CFR, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg, etc.) The group may be able to get away with their secrecy because they do, in fact, exercise less power and influence than the more widely known groups which wield global power.
With that said, it’s important not to discount the CNP’s role in the agenda. While the CNP may not be as powerful as other globalist NGOs, they are powerful in their control over the so-called conservative movement in this country, which ties in closely with the “patriot” movement and alternative media, which many people rely on to deliver them what they believe is “the truth.”
The elite control and administer every side of every issue and debate, and the more people wake up and realize how this control is exercised, the less likely they will be duped by the controlled opposition that’s put out there to lead them in circles, while keeping them neutralized with endless fear-mongering and disinformation.
People also need to begin asking themselves why those they have depended on to bring them the truth will not talk about the CNP on their radio programs. These people need to be repeatedly confronted about this on air and questioned about what they know about the CNP.
Anyone who believes the CNP to be a benevolent organization needs to consider some of the names that belong to it or were formerly involved with it. To name a few (aside from those already mentioned at the top of the page):
Oliver North (Iran-Contra criminal, Rex-84)
Erik Prince (owner of Xe, formerly Blackwater)
John Hagee (Christian-Zionist preacher/paid propagandist for Israel)
Richard Mellon Scaife (billionaire newspaper publisher)
Sen. John McCain
Ed Feulner (president of the “conservative” Heritage Foundation)
Chuck Missler (Conservative bible teacher)
Jack Abramoff (convicted felon, Zionist, former lobbyist)
Dr. Edward Teller (father of the hydrogen bomb)
Paul Weyrich (co-founder of the Heritage Foundation)
(For a more detailed list of current and former CNP members, click here.)
One might ask themselves why people in the Patriot Movement would be members of an organization that Iran-Contra criminal Oliver North has belonged to, who was also the architect of the Rex-84 plan to round up and detain American citizens. Meanwhile, CNP members like disinformation artist Jack McLamb are using blatant fear-mongering and unfounded lies about colored dots on mail boxes to scare people into submission.
It appears that the CNP is also closely connected to the supposedly anti-communist, anti-New World Order John Birch Society. Several of the CNP’s original members, such as Nelson Bunker Hunt, contributed large sums of their money to the JBS, which was initially provided funding from people such as Nelson Rockefeller — another example of how the elite control all sides and administer the opposition to these sides they create.
Several of the CNP’s highest-ranking members also belong to the Masonic Knights of Malta and are associated with Fabian socialism and the eugenics movement. Oil baron and CNP member Nelson Bunker Hunt was a former member of the racist pro-eugenics group called the International Association for the Advancement of Ethology and Eugenics. The group was heavily involved in the promotion of eugenics and segregation.
While the CNP is still widely unknown among even those who research the globalist, one world agenda, more and more people are starting to catch on. Recently radio host Josh Reeves released a documentary on the CNP, titled The Secret Right, which looks at the people behind this organization, its funding, and the nefarious deeds of some of its members. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone looking to learn more about the CNP.
