About twenty-five years ago, when we were publishing “The Mobile Home Reporter” , a trade tabloid with national circulation, and “Texas Travel Guide”, one of our advertisers handed me a book with this comment, “Read this and let me know what you think.”
The book was W. Cleon Skousen’s “The Naked Capitalist” a review and commentary on Dr. Carrol Quigley’s book: Tragedy and Hope. Cleon Skousen had served as deputy director to J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI and was then a professor at Brigham Young University.
Carroll Quigley, at that time professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University, had formerly taught at Princeton and at Harvard. His 1300 page book is an expose of the inner workings of a network of “elite insiders” whose goal is to eventually attain “complete global control.”
In his book, Dr. Quigley states, “I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty five years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960’s, to examine its papers and secret records.” (page 950) In that same paragraph he says,”There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so.” (Some may recall that Bill Clinton, in his first inaugural address, acknowledged the influence of his “mentor” Carroll Quigley while he was a student at Georgetown before obtaining a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford.)
It was through Skousen’s book that I learned how Lenin was financed by major New York bankers in the Russian revolution in 1917. I also learned how these “Round Table Groups” - the Round Table in England, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission (TC) in the United States and the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR) on the Pacific rim - have managed to place their members into major positions of influence in the United States government. ( Both Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush are members of both CFR and TC.) Through these positions of influence they have been successful in taking the United States into World War II, the Korean “conflict” and Viet Nam, all at great cost in lives and wealth to the American people but for huge profits to certain owners of industry and financial institutions.
In 1978, I met Johnny Stewart from Waco, founder of the Fund to Restore an Educated Electorate (F.R.E.E.) which published a chart showing where the members of CFR and TC hold positions of influence in government, media, financial institutions, colleges and universities and foundations. Each year he published and distributed tens of thousands of these charts which have become a recognized source and authority on the “elite insider” influence in our country.
In 1983, Johnny asked me to serve on his Board of Directors, which I gladly accepted. After Johnny died in 1987, Cy Minett, retired Air Force Lt. Col., and I have continued the work started by Johnny.
Over the years we have researched various subjects primarily oriented around the decline of liberty in the United States and the influence of the “insider elite” in bringing about this decline. Naturally, over the years we have accumulated volumes of materials the people’s knowledge of which we believe is essential to their understanding of what is happening in our country and to the recovery of the liberty as planned and established by the founders of this nation.
By 1993, we had determined that the appropriate medium to disseminate this information would be a newsletter, and in February 1994 we published our first issue of The Free Press. Its stated purpose is “Serving the People who seek Truth, Liberty and Justice,” and toward that end we guarantee that you will not find our information on the “Ten O’Clock News” or in your local newspaper.
In 1994 we reported the story that Federal Reserve Bank of New York Chairman Beardsley Ruml, speaking to the American Bar Association in 1945, said that since our money system was based entirely on credit, that the federal income tax was unnecessary as a source of revenue, but was needed “to serve four principal purposes of a social and economic character.”
Also in that year we reported the following items:
• Marines in California were surveyed to determine whether they would fire on Americans if ordered to do so;
• Twenty-six state National Guard units have been assigned “Partnerships” with the military of former Soviet Union states. Other states are in line for the same;
• Retired French businessman, Sir James Goldsmith, member of the European Parliament, warned Congress that ratification of the GATT treaty would cause American jobs and industries to be moved offshore.
• the University of Oklahoma seismology department reported two “events” ten seconds apart in relation to the explosion(s) at the Murrah Federal Office Building in Oklahoma City;
• demolition expert, Air Force Brig. Gen. Benton K. Partin, showed by engineering analysis that a fertilizer “bomb” could not possibly cause the level of damage inflicted on the Murrah office building;
• Drs. Garth and Nancy Nicholson, researchers at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, reported that the cause of the so-called “Gulf War Syndrome” is a “man-made, artificial mycoplasma that had somehow been implanted in the cells of Desert Storm veterans.”
• reviewed a 1943 Reader’s Digest article describing the Rudolph Hess, second in command to Adolph Hitler, flight to Scotland to negotiate a peace agreement with Churchill. Instead, he was arrested and held incommunicado in Spandau prison until he died, long after the war was over, never being allowed access to the media to tell his story.
Over the years we have carried numerous items:
• explaining the fraudulent “debt-money” system of the Federal Reserve by which money is created from nothing and loaned at interest to the government and private borrowers.;
• revealing the nature of the Internal Revenue Code as establishing an excise tax on the earnings of U. S. Government employees, and that all others voluntarily “self-assess” by filing a “return” signed under penalty of perjury.
In 1998 we reported additional evidence of cover-up relating to the destruction of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.
In 1999 we reported the congressional testimony of Navy Commander William S. Donaldson charging the National Transportation Safety Board with cover-up and abuse of authority regarding their investigation of the TWA 800 crash off Long Island.
Occasionally we draw from history in our desire to identify the illness of our nation today. Examples are French author Frederic Bastiat’s 1850 book “The Law” in which he demonstrates how law is used to plunder the people; or the 1700s sermon of Presbyterian pastor Timothy Dwight in which he described how “lies and deceit destroy the nation.”
It is our concern that “lies and deceit” continue to work for the destruction of the liberties of this nation that motivates us to search out and publish the information that makes up each issue of The Free Press. Whether it is the “hidden agenda” of the desire for an oil pipeline from the Caspian Basin which is behind the “war on terrorism” in Afghanistan, or the omission from current news coverage that Chandra Levy was assigned to the Bureau of Prisons to collect information on Timothy McVeigh and whether that may have been a factor in her murder, we will continue to provide our readers with the news “behind the news.”
If you are concerned that your current sources of information are leaving you with less that the complete story on what is happening in the world today, we invite you to become a regular reader of The Free Press. To subscribe, send your check or money order for $25 to The Free Press, P. O. Box 2303, Kerrville, Texas 78029 and we will send you by First Class Mail the next 12 issues of The Free Press.
If you would like to see a few issues before deciding, email us your mailing address and we will enter you for three issues and send you a renewal notice. If, after seeing three issues, you think you would rather not know this kind of information, just write “cancel” on the notice and return it to us. If you want to continue to receive the next 12 issues, just send us your check or money order for $25.
We look forward to the opportunity to serve you in this way.
