Foundation officers: Brower (official founder) | Michael McCloskey (hired by Brower in 1961, executive director 1969-1985, honorary treasurer until 2010) | Melvin Lane (trustee 1977-1984) | Robert McKinney (has been trustee, treasurer, chair, advisory council member and an important donor)
Additional facts on financing: Ford Fdn.: gave $170,000 to the Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund between 1979 and 1981. Atlantic Richfield of Robert O. Anderson is known to have given $30,000 to the Sierra Club Federation in 1979-1980. The Rockefeller Family Fund, of which David Rockefeller is the honorary trustee, makes annual donations between $25,000 to $55,000 to the Sierra Club Foundation, even today. Trustees generally hold mid-level positions in larger companies or control less important corporations.
Important: executive director David Brower left in protest in 1969 after clashes about opposition to nuclear energy (Brower did not support it). That same year he founded Friends of the Earth with $200,000 of Robert Anderson money.
Also: Steven Greer has lectured the Sierra Club.

Founding based on individual action against nuclear weapon tests. Began with a group of Canadian protestors who protested against a bomb test at Amchitka island, Alaska. One of the participants was Jim Bohlen, a Sierra Club member frustrated with the club's lack of action against nuclear bomb tests. Journalist Ben Metcalfe was another among the board members and was part of the small group that continued protests against French atmospheric nuclear tests at Mururoa. He became the Greenpeace Foundation's first chairman. Metcalf left when focused shifted from anti-nuclear protesting to anti-whaling actions.
Significant contributors since at least the mid-1990s include: Rockefeller Brothers Fund | Ted Turner Foundation | John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation | Charles Stewart Mott Foundation | David and Lucile Packard Foundation | John Merck Fund. Grants anywhere from $30,000 to $450,000 were provided for specific projects.

Lester R. Brown (founder, president 1974-2000, chairman 2000-2001). The founding was financed by Rockefeller Brothers Fund, heaved by Laurance Rockefeller from 1958 to 1980. Worldwatch launched the State of the World reports in 1984. In later years millions have been received from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Ted Turner Foundation and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.

Exposed the Iran-Contra drug trafficking scandal for State Department friends George Shu1tz and John C. Whitehead, as well as secretary of defense Caspar W. Weinberger. William Casey and conservative McCarthyites, as well as CIA friens as Ted Shackley, had become too influential on Reagan at the time. In addition, Garrison was close to Condi Rice.

|American Water Development, Inc.|
Private company looking to exploit a giant water reservoir underneath the San Luis Valley, raising worries that it would turn the valley into a desert. Major conflict of interest, especially with the 1998 World Water Commission. Maurice Strong (founder and chair) | William Ruckelshaus (director)
|Manitou Foundation, Baca Ranch, San Luis Valley|
Founders: Maurice Strong and Laurance Rockefeller. Also involved: Steven Greer (Baha'i follower who organized CSETI UFO contact trainings at the Baca Ranch and surrounding areas from at least 1993 to 1998, in the same period he was cooperating with Laurance on UFO disclosure). It's a remote spiritual retreat center at the Sangro de Cristo mountains where many world religions have one or two representatives. The location is known for its past UFO activity and for being the first location where cattle mutilations were reported (1967, Snippy case). There appears to be a lot of gnostic symbolism involved and the retreat seems to have a lot in common with the globalist ideas of the Baha'i Faith, which in turn is completely, one hundred percent compatible with the United Nations ideas on world government.
|Human Potential Foundation (HPF)|
C. B. Scott Jones (president; six year special assistant to Sen. Pell) | Claiborne Pell | Laurance Rockefeller (financier to the tune of $700,000) | Hans Adam II von Liechtenstein | John Mack (abduction researcher who received $200,000 from HPF).
Helped finance the Center for Treatment and Research of Experienced Anomalous Trauma (TREAT) conferences on abductions and other paranormal phenomena. Rima Laibow (founder and organizer; psychiatrist; later wife of Army Intelligence Gen. Albert Stubblebine; both major disinformers) | Victoria Lacas (abduction researcher married to Col. John Alexander, a friend of Stubblebine and Hans Adam) | Budd Hopkins (close friend of Hans Adam; both tried to find out details of the alleged alien kidnapping of UN secretary general Javier Perez de Cuellar) | Lyn Buchanan (remote viewer).
L. Rockefeller financed John Mack's 1993 Program for Extraordinary Experience Research (PEER), an alien abductee support group which laid the groundwork for Mack's 1994 best-selling book 'Abduction: Human Encounters with Aliens'. Allegedly provided Mack with $250,000 annually in the early 1990s.
Colin Andrews: The premier British crop circle researcher (and certainly in recent years a believer in a global warming armageddon) was financed by Laurance R. in the late 1990s. Already in 1992 Greer accompanied Andrews, doing meditation experiments.
1995 HPF conference: John Mack | Zecharia Sitchin (According to Richard Hoagland on Coast to Coast AM, I believe with Sitchin critic Mike Heiser, Sitchin had an office at Rockefeller Plaza. Hoagland was discussing his/their experiences with Sitchin.)
Budd Hopkins (founder and executive director) | Hans Adam II von Liechtenstein (financier). Advisory committee: Edward H. Davis, Jr. (psychologist; applied behavior specialist with autistic children) | Carol Rainey (documentary producer) | Peter Robbins (UFO researcher) | Greg Sandow (journalist who writes about UFOs) | Jed Turnbull (psychiatrist with a MA from Fordham) | Oliver von Kemenczky (global account manager Honeywell Corp.) | Dennis K. Anderson (media consultant) | Cathy Del Grosso (forensic psychologist) | Sal Amendola (comic book artist with DC Comics)
1992: Intruders movie. Running time: 2 hours and 40 minutes. Budd Hopkins is played by Richard Crenna. Several reasonable well known actors appear in this very television movie.
June 13-17, 1992: MIT Abduction Study Conference: Hans Adam and Robert Bigelow (financiers) | Dr. David Pritchard (chair). Participants: John Mack | David Jacobs | Budd Hopkins | Thomas Bullard | John Carpenter | David Gotlib | Richard Hall | Pam Kasey | Joe Nyman | Mark Rodeghier | Walter Webb. Produced a 700 page book on the subject.

Petersen (founder and chair) | Woolsey (director) | Napier Collyns (director) | Joe Firmage (director; UFO cultist) | Catherine Austin Fitts (black budget critic; invited to a meeting she said was in part about aliens living among us) | linked to Coast to Coast AM show and Steven Greer (UFOs). Hal Puthoff (speech)
|Fund for UFO Research Roswell conference, Washington, D.C.|
Held at the Smithsonian. Heads of FUFOR: Don Berliner and Bruce Maccabee. Financiers of the conference: Hans Adam II von Liechtenstein and Robert Bigelow. Brought together numerous witnesses of the 1947 Roswell crash. Interviews with the witnesses leads to the video 'Recollections of Roswell', which appears to be good for the most part - except for the questionable San Agustin crash witnesses. Bigelow was involved in financing part of the research into that aspect of the crash, as a picture can be seen in Stanton Friedman's book 'Crash at Corona' of Bigelow and Friedman looking out over the San Agustin plains.

|Rockefeller Initiative on UFO disclosure|
Laurance Rockefeller (prime mover). White House: Bill Clinton (on April 14, 1993 Laurance meets Clinton at the White House over the issue) | Jack Gibbons (White House scientist briefed by Rockefeller and C. B. Scott Jones on the subject) | John Podesta (Clinton's assistant and later chief of staff; spoke out publicly in favor of disclosure) | Webster Hubbell (Clinton's associate attorney general; looked into UFOs and JFK, but got nothing).
Round table discussion at the JY Ranch: representatives from Gibbons office | Richard Farley | Laurance Rockefeller | Henry Diamond | C. B. Scott Jones | John Mack | Dr. Bruce Maccabee | Leo Sprinkle | Linda Moulton Howe | Steven Greer | Keith Thompson. Bill and Hillary Clinton were also been guests of Laurance at the ranch.
Eventually Laurance Rockefeller and the president back off, apparently fearing repurcussions. The only thing published is 'UFO's: The Best Available Evidence', at different times funded by Laurance Rockefeller, Robert Bigelow and Joe Firmage.
Dr. Steven Greer (founder and CEO) | Daniel Sheehan (long-time lawyer to the project and witness) | Laurance Rockefeller (limited financial supporter) | Mary and Evan Galbraith (cooperated with Greer for some time in the 1990s in writing 'UFO's: The Best Available Evidence' - until they had a falling out).
Examples of witnesses used:
- Dr. Fred Bell (listed as "Dr. B.". Not mentioned: new age guru, Pleiadean contactee who believes in reptilians, that Greys eat humans dissolved in acid, that no plane hit the WTC and that 2012 was going to be the end of the world)
- Jim Dilettoso (identity kept hidden, but reported as being reliable. Not mentioned: murky past and known UFO cultist. George A. Hormel II, owner of the Wrigley Mansion, invested in Dilettoso's projects.)
- James Angleton, Jr. (Greer has hinted that this person gave him information. Not mentioned: Reportedly no relationship to the CI chief. However, he is an AFIO leader with the nation's CIA covert operations establishment - with people who would absolute have no interest in releasing classified information)
- Sergeant Robert O. Dean, backed by L. Rockefeller and Claiborne Pell in Congress in 1996, became an important Disclosure Project witness (talking about "ACIO" and 20-something levels about top secret), but these days talks about Annunaki and reptilians to anyone who wants to hear it. In addition, an interested and moderate NATO historian rationally debunked papers he provided as being fake.
- Gordon Creighton and Lord Admiral Hill-Norton are presented as reliable. In fact, both have viewed the abduction subject as being done by demons. Already in the 1970s Creighton was warning that people "have been carried off and ... certainly haven't come back again." Already back then Creighton promoted an author who in turn inspired Erich von Daniken.
Without naming their names directly, Greer has claimed that General Albert Stubblebine and Colonel John Alexander have tried to recruit him into a cell that has infiltrated the civilian UFO community. Those who watched the Hans Adam-financed movie 'Intruders' can see that the same thing happened to Budd Hopkins (by an actor who plays a general who looks like the twin brother of Gen. Stubblebine).
Mentioned by Greer as not having any inside knowledge:
1) General Patrick Hughes, DIA director 1996-1999, who has a major special operations background but is far from an elitist.
2) Adm. Thomas R. Wilson, J-2 intelligence chief for the joined chiefs and DIA head 1999-2002.
Mentioned by Greer as having inside knowledge on the subject (true or not, he spoke to these people or persons close to them): George Shultz | the Bechtel family | David Rockefeller | Peter Peterson | Maxwell Rabb | Claiborne Pell | the Rothschild family | Pehr Gyllenhammar (indirect, but controlled Volvo until the early 1990s) | Hans Adam | Adm. Harry Train | Adm. Bobby Ray Inman. Also: Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld (warned against their re-election in 2004 and that these individuals have direct knowledge of these topics - then again, Greer is politically hundred percent in line with men as Al Gore and Maurice Strong).
Interesting observation: Greer most definitely had a dinner party in 1993 with then-sitting CIA director James Woolsey (who was never allowed to meet president Clinton one-on-one) and John Petersen and their wives on the subject. The participants in the dinner disagree, however, with Greer's account of it. Greer claimed the CIA director was almost in tears that he wasn't told anything about the subject. The other participants, claim, however, that they were just politely listening to his views, but did not necessarily believe in them. Strangely, James W. has incredibly deep ties to the defense industry, the liberal and conservative establishment, and the Navy at the highest levels. If he doesn't know anything about the subject, then pretty much no one does.

Also: Ann Finkbeiner (wrote official history on the JASON Group, a year after ISGP's first article which had led to harressment by the JASONs. Ian Punnett thanked this author for a number of questions sent in, but subsequently forgot to ask a single one of them to Finkbeiner (or even one critical question). Since C2C is a show on UFOs and the paranormal, what's the purpose of bringing Finkbeiner on if there's no focus on these topics? And why would Finkbeiner target the conspiracy community if she wants to be taken seriously?)
|National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS)|

Daniel Sheehan is general counsel to ISSO.
9th Annual International UFO Congress Convention, held on March 5-11, 2000: Sheehan and Firmage are speakers at the meeting. Dr. Robert and Ryan Wood give a presentation. They are aske how much Firmage has paid them for their research, a question they refuse to answer. To this day they maintain the most prominent website on the MJ-12 documents. Obvious fakes are still listed with a 3 out of 5 star rating.

They named all these men, as well as: Roy Cohn | Joseph Bonanno | Hans Seligman | Carlo d'Amelio | Max Hageman | Munir Chourbagi | Giuseppe Zigotti | Ferenc H. Simonfay. Incredible that after 50 years we still don't have photocopy proof of who the directors of this company were.

Robertson (co-founder and chair; INCA director) | Cecil Shilstone (co-founder; INCA director).

Committee of New Orleans businessman that decided to privately finance the investigation of Jim Garrison into the JFK assassination, with a primary focus on Clay Shaw -- instead of Shaw's superiors, who were some of the persons financing the investigation. Joseph Rault, Jr. Rault quoted in the National Observer, 'The Kennedy Case', of Feb. 26, 1967:
Jim Garrison was inspired to investigate JFK after conversations with his friends Joseph Rault, Jr. and Senator Russell Long on a plane trip to a conference of the American Petroleum Institute. Estimates of how much the group raised range from $30,000 to $100,000.
Based on the directorships of friends and aides of Gen. Douglas MacArthur: Gen. Bonner Fellers, Gen. George Stratemeyer, Gen. Pedro del Valle, Gen. Albert Wedemeyer, Gen. Charles Willoughby, as well as the financiers of MacArthur's campaign in 1952: Gen. Robert E. Wood (his wealthy campaign manager), H.L. Hunt, Nelson Bunker Hunt, and reportedly Clint Murchison, Sr. (a close supporter in any case).

Founding members advisory council: Willis Carto | Gen. Pero Del Valle | Gen. George Stratemeyer | Taylor Caldwell. Also: General Alfred Wedemeyer (at the very least lots of correspondence with the lobby in the early years) | Mark Lane (attorney to the Lobby, including to Victor Marchetti, since the 1980s and speaker at its conventions) | Col. L. Fletcher Prouty (member of the Lobby's populist action committee; his book 'The Secret Team' was published by Noontide Press, which belongs to the Lobby; special operations expert for the Joint Chiefs under JFK) |
Zionist Watch, set up in 1987 by the lobby. Mark Lane (basically CIA) and Victor Marchetti (CIA) were the original editors. Lawyer for the lobby who supposedly took over its assets in 1993. Lane was a JFK investigator and lawyer for the Jonestown Cult, just before the massacre began. Earlier he had been the same to Martin Luther King and JFK investigator Jim Garrison. Lane is one of the most prominent authors on the JFK case.
Spotlight and American Free Press are anti-Jewish and anti-black (thus, Nazi) conspiracy-oriented publications of the Lobby. July 2008, AFP staff: James Tucker (national editor; anti-BB) | Michael Piper Collins (national corresponding editor) | Willes Carto (national correspondent) | Ted Gunderson (co-editor Southwest regional bureau; employee ultra-right CIA-linked Murchison family) | Anthony Hilder (anti-BB, Illuminati, etc.) and Rev. Ted Pike (co-editors regional bureau West). Speakers at the 2006 American Free Press-Barnes Review International Conference in Washington: Dave Von Kleist (major 9/11 disinformer) | Collins Piper | Doug Rokke (anti-depleted uranium activist) | Colonel Donn de Grand Pre (9/11 disinformer) | Victor Thorn and Lisa Guliani (Wing-TV 9/11 disinformers) | Ellen Mariani | William Rodriguez (major 9/11 disinformer; reversed 9/11 testimony, claiming all of sudden a bomb went off in the basement of the WTC) | Lindsey Williams (abiotic oil/peak oil disinformer) | Eustace Mullins (protege of the Nazi poet Ezra Pound and H.L. Hunt; major anti-NWO author) | Ted Gunderson (disinformer on chemtrails, child abuse and everything else) | Willis Carto (Nazi) | Texe Marrs (religious extremist Illuminati believer and extremely anti-Jewish) | Mark Lane.
Lyndon Larouche: allied with Willis Carto and the Liberty Lobby 1974-1979, until Carto became involved in holocaust denial. Was more socialist thinking, however, and also always maintained ties with the Soviet Union, as well persons in the U.S. government. By far the most knowledgeable conspiracy group ever, but very manipulative, radical and holds a lot of info and sources back.
Institute for Historical Review (IHR), founded by Carto in 1978, was part of the Lobby. It tries to provide "science" that the holocaust never happened or had very limited impact. Has become the leading group for holocaust denial/revisionism. Principals: David Duke | David Irving | Mark Weber.
Jeff Rense website and radio program, founded in the 1990s, is today's most prominent continuation of Liberty Lobby Nazi-inspired conspiratorial thinking. Terry Arnold (columnist at Rense since 2002; associate of Neil Livingstone and his CIA/Pentagon group) | Paul Craig Roberts (columnist since 2010) | Webster Tarpley (columnist; Larouche background) | William Engdahl (columnist; Larouche background) | David Duke (long-time columnist; KKK and Nazi background) | David Irving (long-time columnist; IHR Nazi) | Mark Weber (long-time columnist; IHR Nazi).
|John Birch Society|
Primary publication has been the New American, which attacks BB, the TC, the CFR and does not distinguish between liberalism, communism and socialism. Early(McCarthyite) board members: Robert Welch | Nelson Bunker Hunt | Gen. Wedemeyer | Clarence Manion | Adolphe Menjou | Larry MacDonald | Harry Bradley | Fred Koch | Spruille Braden | Edward Butler (ordinary member). Also: Gary Allen (famous author on the CFR and TC; speech writer for George Wallace and advisor to Nelson Bunker Hunt) | William Jasper (prominent editor The New American) | Ron Paul and Father Nicholas Gruner (supporters who were in JBS documentary 'United Nations: Global tyranny, step by step') | Malachi Martin (interviewed in 1997 and major critic of the Rockefeller, Ford and Carnegie Fdns.) | John McManus (protege of Welch since 1966 at the JBS and president since 1991).The Alex Jones Show is largely a modern spin-off of the JBS with an additional focus on modern conspiracy. In 2010 John McManus stopped by at Jones HQ, where Jones stated on air:
Statements of Alex Jones on his show. On August 31, 2010:
On July 1, 2011, while being confronted with a guest who is just as right-wing as the CNP, but frustrated by its lack of what appears to be political compromise:
At least in 2011 Alex Jones received his "pocket constitution" flyers from the Heritage Foundation, which he sent to people who purchased items from his website. Considering the Heritage Foundation is the main U.S. arm of the secretive CIA, MI6 and Opus Dei-ran Cercle group, that explains why Jones all of sudden withdrew all support for ISGP when it began to focus on the right-wing of the spectrum in late 2006, starting with a massive article on Le Cercle, in which the Heritage Foundation, the CNP and the JBS were also put under the magnifying glass. Before, while writing much less detailed articles about the liberal establishment and globalization, there hadn't been any issues.
Important roles have been played by Rev. Wesley Swift and Rev. Col. William P. Gale, another former aide to Gen. MacArthur.

|Committee of 26|
This group is mentioned in Simon Regan's book 'Who killed Diana?' The author was informed about this group through his intelligence contacts, including the one who advised him to look into Le Cercle. I quote from his book:
"My own security contacts, including the Baroness, had also told me about a highly mysterious organization called the Committee of 26, which is apparently based in Bristol, in England’s West Country. I have never heard of this and can find no other official reference in any file. But it is apparently a super-secret "liaison desk" between the highest echelons of British and American agencies and has the "co-operation" of the French. I was told it was "Old Guard" and worked unilaterally. That is, it was a kind of uncontrolled "super-agency" which answered to no one. I cannot show that this agency even exists... I trust the Baroness, but she was unable to give me any feasible further "chapter and verse."
This could well be disinformation, as this is certainly the case with John Coleman's Committee of 300 ("the Olympians"). I read Coleman's book years back, looking for evidence of the committee's existence, but couldn't find it. Virtually all of the information could be found in the work of EIR and Eustace Mullins (both also propagandists, but who never used the Committee of 300 term), and most of the names he mentions have at least once visited Bilderberg. Especially since Coleman gathered so many names of this alleged Committee of 300, you'd guess he could at least point you in the right direction for proof of its existence. But he has never done that. Coleman, a former MI6 agent, is typical of conservative establishment propagandists à la Brian Crozier and others, in the sense that he links liberalism, socialism and communism all on one heap and the West has been a victim of this joint "plot". This alone is a dead giveaway that he's spreading disinformation. Maybe it's different with the Committee on 26, but don't get your hopes up.
Said to be an assassination team from Britain. You can find some information about it here. The supposed head of Group 13 turned out to be someone whose background could not be fully traced, not even by the British Parliament. This person and his allies had also infiltrated the boards of arms companies. Apparently, when these companies aren't useful anymore, they are run into the ground. This group, which appears to have close ties to the Pinay Cercle leadership, will be slightly more expanded on in the future.
Another assassination team from England. The well-respected and well-connected author Gordon Thomas spoke about this group in March 2010. Supposedly this group is hunting down IRA members who killed two British soldiers and a policeman in Northern Ireland.
|Knight's Templar (CIA)|
In his 1977 book The Night Watch, former CIA officer David Atlee Phillips wrote on page 123 (according to Lobster): "...that small circle of well-bred, highly educated adventurers who were known to some in the CIA as the 'Knights Templars' - Allen Dulles, Frank Wisner, Kermit Roosevelt, Tracey Barnes, Dick Bissell, and kindred spirits. Other CIA veterans have confirmed the existence of similar associations within the agency, with names like the "Century group" and the "Gold Key group".
|Synarchist Movement of Empire|
The Synarchist and Martinist order existed, but nothing is really known about it and it may well have been very insignificant in terms of influence. But some have claimed that the philopsophies of Synarchism played a role in the French version of an underground fascist, pre-World War II movement.
1969, William L. Shirer, 'The Collapse of the Third Republic', p. 218-219: "Later Coutrot would be generally credited with being the man behind a technocratic movement called Synarchie, which to this day, despite many studies of it, remains - at least to this writer, who has pondered most of them - somewhat of a mystery... That some Synarchists organized as far back as 1922 a secret society with revolutionary aims has been established. It was called "Le Mouvement Synarchique d'Empire," or MSE, and its secret "Pact," containing "Thirteen Fundamental Points and 598 Propositions" for the Synarchist revolution, was discovered by the Vichy police in 1941 and published after the war... so far as one can make out from reading the lengthy document the movement would set up a sort of super monopoly capitalism, with competition abolished and endless plans drawn up for production and distribution, the whole - as well as the government - to be run by knowledgeable technocrats... That at one time the MSE was linked to the terrorist Cagoule [CSAR] also seems clear... this secret society of technocrats never got close to staging a revolution." A number of other authors disagree with that last notion. You can find more on the SME and the Synarchie in note 3 of the article on Le Cercle and especially in note 61 and 62 of the article on the Pilgrims.
Here's a quick timeline compiled from the work of Roger Mennevée in Les Documents Politiques, Diplomatiques et Financiers, which was published from 1946 to 1962.
Over the years I came across certain and alleged coups in the countries below, usually carried out by by the CIA and other times by MI6 and French intelligence. Several of the coups also involved the Israelis. The dates are picked based on either a major event in that year or when a slower, more drawn-out coup went into action - like in Tibet, for example. This list is just a guide. Google the country listed, togeter with "coup" and "CIA", and you are likely to find more than enough information. Some curious assassinations, which could be suspected as having been part of coup, have not been listed. An example of this are the deaths of the left-leaning Indian politicians Sanjay Gandhi (1980), Indira Gandhi (1984) and Rajiv Gandhi (1991).
Keep in mind that "open action", instead of "covert action", has become the norm since the early 1980s, meaning that major thinks tanks and foundations continue to support student and "pro-democracy" groups in all countries the West takes an interest in. Freedom House, the National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute the Open Society Foundations of George Soros have been examples of this type of activity. Like Allen Weinstein, co-founder of the National Endowment for Democracy, acknowledged:"A lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA."
