The report released a statement from National Hospital (CNP) delegates highlighting opportunities for Republicans, wealthy businessmen, journalists and the pillars of the US Security Council to compete with abortion and anti-abortion extremists.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which monitors hate groups, describes the CNP as “secretive and secretive” [which] worked behind the scenes “in its attempt to” build a secure organization “.
The disclosure of the membership began in September last year, and shows that the 40-year-old CNP has skillfully placed Trump’s senior management numbers along with leaders of organizations listed in the hate groups.
The group was formed in 1981 by powerful advocates of Christianity, including Tim LaHaye, Howard Phillips and Paul Weyrich, who were also involved in founding and leading the Moral Majority. At first they were looking to increase their power over the new Reagan management. In the years that followed, CNP meetings played presidential candidates such as George W Bush in 1999 and Mitt Romney in 2007, and incumbent presidents including Donald Trump in 2020.
In a video obtained by the Washington Post in 2020, the chairman of the CPP executive committee, Bill Walton, told attendees of the upcoming elections: “This is a spiritual battle we are in. This is good or bad.”
The CNP is secretive, so to speak, that its members are instructed not to disclose their identities or even to name the group.
Heidi Beirich, of the Global Project Against Hate and Extremism, said in an email that “this new CNP document makes it clear that the group is still an important place for conservatives and extremists”, adding that the CNP “remains an important debate. .
The document – which shows the e-mail addresses and phone numbers of most members – indicates that the CNP includes members of the SPLC – listed hate groups.
They include leaders of organizations listed as anti-Muslim groups, including:
Frank Gaffney, founder and executive director of the Center for Security Policy (CSP)
Brigitte Gabriel, founder and chair of the Act For America (AFA)
They also include a number of startups or leaders of listed anti-LGBTQ + hate groups, such as:
Michael P Farris, president and CEO of the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF)
Brad Dacus, founder and director of the Pacific Justice Institute
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council
Matthew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsell
Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association
Also, there are members of organizations listed as anti-immigrant groups, including James and Mapola Hansberger, affiliates of Legal Immigrants For America (Lifa).
In addition, this list includes members of groups accused of extremes in abortion. They include Margaret H Hartshorn, chairman of the board of Heartbeat International, which is said to have spread misinformation around the world to pregnant women.
A number of high numbers are associated with the Trump administration, or conspiracy theorists on the Trump administration, who are also on the list, such as Jerome R Corsi, who authored conspiracy theories on John Kerry, Barack Obama and the September 11 attacks. Corsi is listed as a member of the CNP board of directors.
Along with representatives of extremist groups, the CNP rolls include members of high-security groups, and representatives of major American corporations. More to come from the Republican party, the network of rights groups, and the companies and principles that support them.
New to the group as the past member membership was unveiled is Charlie Kirk, founder and president of Thenning Point USA (TPUSA), a youth watch organization.
While TPUSA is working hard to penetrate traditional culture with on-campus stairs and events, Kirk recently unveiled hard-to-right areas, saying recently that the Democratic immigration policy aimed to “reduce and reduce white people in America”, the day after Tucker Carlson released the spirits. the racist “grew to replace” conspiracy theories on his Fox News program.
Conservative mobility heavyweights in a group that includes Lisa B Nelson, chief executive of the American Legislative Exchange Council; Eugene Mayer, president of the Federalist Society; Grover Norquist, president of the American Revenue Service; Daniel Schneider, executive director of the American Conservative Union, which organizes the CPac conference; by L Brent Bozell III, founder of the Media Research Center and a member of the Bozell and Buckley tribes of conservative representatives.
Other members include pillars of Republican politics, including former GOP majority leader Tom DeLay; former Wisconsin governor Scott Walker; Reagan superintendent general manager Edwin Meese III; and former RNC chairman and Trump White House chief of staff Reince Priebus.
Many of them include sitting in congressmen such as Barry Loudermilk and others like David Trulio, who was a senior adviser and chief of staff to the defense secretary in the Trump administration.
The member list also includes representatives of major US companies, such as Marc Johansen, vice president of site and Boeing intelligence program; Jeffrey Coors, of the Coors cooking family, who strongly supported the conservation groups; Lee Roy Mitchell, founder and chairman of the board owner of the chain owner Cinemark Holdings; Steve Forbes, founder and CEO of Forbes business news empire empire; and Scott Brown, vice president at Morgan Stanley.
Some group members represent organizations that operate under the guise of secrecy, and organizations that protect “dark money” are well represented.
Another member, Lawson Bader, is the director of the Donor’s Trust and Donors Capital Fund, a non-profit that hides the identity of their donors, and those who have a greater chance of good cause saw them described as “dirty money-ATMs of a security organization.”
Another member, Richard Graber, is the president and executive director of Lynde and the Harry Bradley Foundation. The Bradley foundation has long been preserved in the movement to protect the cause of the movement, including the Donors Trust, and is said to have also supported a concerted effort to undermine Joe Biden’s 2020 elections.
Conservative media numbers are also on the list: Neil Patel, co-founder and publisher of the Daily Caller; Larry Beasley, editor-in-chief of the right-wing Washington Times; by Floyd Brown, founder of the Arizona-based Western Journal and founder of Citizens United Pac.
Pro-gun groups are also represented, with NRA chief Wayne LaPierre and Gun Owners’ founder Tim Macy each listed as members.
The 22-page document – which includes a code of conduct and a code of conduct for members as well as all members – has been published and distributed to journalists through a transparent organization, the Distributed Denial of Secrets.
Emma Best from the group said in a chat chat that the CNP was a “secret forum for the wealthy — and skilled conservatives who plan and create long-term strategic plans nationally and internationally”. Therefore, he said, “any opportunity to enlighten members, events and interests is clearly in the public interest”.
The Guardian regularly asked for comment from CNP staff, including Executive Director Brad McEwen, and other parties mentioned in the case but did not receive immediate response..
