Rockefeller fingerprints have to be all over this one. The Rockefeller/CFR connections to the ACLU are undeniable fact.
Something similar happened in Germany after Hitler got power, he thinned his ranks of the SA that brought him to power and then others including the homosexuals that also were behind his movement. Obama has done a reversal on his gay-rights agenda and I wonder if some are speaking out against his hypocricy. But who knows what happened yet, I am sure there will be some official “this was a hate crime” BS to push more draconian hate crime legislation. But if a homocide, looks damn professional and blaming some angry patsy will probably be seen as obvious BS.

The ACLU weighs in on the Supreme Court ruling regarding Voter ID and discusses why Voter ID laws are bad for all Americans.
He wasn’t a big fan of the Real ID Act. He started a website www.realnightmare.org to raise awareness to state and federal authorities about the dangers of real id.
Which also means: “If you oppose and try to expose our real agenda with the fact your biometric data is stored in an Agile Software (PROMIS/Ptech) database that allows us to change your ID credentials dynamically, at will–THEN YOU WILL BE KILLED.”
Just remember who funds the ACLU. The Rockefeller Foundation and the Ford Foundation. Current ACLU executive director Anthony Romero is a CFR member who worked for BOTH the Rockefeller Foundation and Ford Foundation. And for at least 30 years, the ACLU president has been a CFR member. Nadine Strossen (ACLU president, 1991-2008) is a CFR member. Norman Dorsen (ACLU president, 1976-1991) is a CFR member.
Nadine Strossen (born August 18, 1950) was president of the American Civil Liberties Union from February 1991 to October 2008. She was the first woman and the youngest person to ever lead the ACLU. A professor at New York Law School, Professor Strossen sits on the Council on Foreign Relations.
Anthony Romero serves on or associates with a number of organizations, boards of directors, and others. He is the chairman of the Center of Disability and Advocacy Rights, vice chairman of the New World Foundation’s Board of Directors and a member the Council on Foreign Relations, the New York State Bar Association and Hispanics in Philanthropy. In addition, he has sat on the board of judges for the PEN/Newman’s Own award for free expression.
In the past, he was the Vice Chairman of the White House Internship Advisory Committee and acted as Co-Chairman of the Funders’ Committee for Citizen Participation. He was also Director of Human Rights and International Cooperation at the Ford Foundation, which turned “into Ford’s largest and most dynamic grant making unit” under his leadership. Prior to this position, he served as Program Officer for Civil Rights and Racial Justice for the Ford Foundation. He has also been part of the Rockefeller Foundation.
The ACLU’s leadership is well represented in the CFR’s membership rolls and works closely with this Insider brain trust. ACLU president Nadine Strossen is a CFR member. So is ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero, a homosexual activist attorney who previously was a top staff member at the Ford Foundation, the CER-directed revolutionary cash cow providing funding to the ACLU. Stanley Sheinbaum, the longtime patriarch of the ACLU of Southern California, one of the organization’s most influential chapters, is also a CFR member. So is Morton Halperin, the Marxist revolutionary who, for many years, ran the ACLU’s project to neuter our police and security agencies. President Clinton tried to appoint Halperin to a top Defense Department post, but was prevented from doing so when this magazine and others exposed the nominee s ultra-radical, pro-Communist, pro-terrorist record.
In 1996, ACLU President Nadine Strossen was one of three CFR panelists on the council’s program, “Combating Terrorism: What Works? What Doesn’t?” This conference, broadcast over C-SPAN, provided an even earlier trial balloon than Hart-Rudman to measure the American public’s response to proposals for draconian measures to fight terrorism.
The ACLU has pointed to the Orwellian Big Brother potential of the Homeland Security Act (HSA) to boost recruitment and raise funds. Apparently this scam is working; the organization claims that its membership has jumped to an all-time high, and funds are pouring in. What the ACLU does not point out is the close relationship of its top players to the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) architects who gave us the HSA. The HSA and the mammoth new Homeland Security Department was created by legislation that originated with the CFR-spawned Hart-Rudman Commission. Known formally as the United States Commission on National Security/21st Century, the Hart-Rudman Commission was established in 1998 at the urging of President Clinton (CFR) and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (CFR). The commission was co-chaired by former Senators Gary Hart (CFR) and Warren Rudman (CFR). It should be no surprise that the commission proposed what Congress has essentially adopted and President Bush has signed. ACLU president Nadine Strossen is a CFR member. So is ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero. The CFR seeks nothing less than the absolute destruction of American sovereignty and liberty.
The ACLU is lavishly funded by wealthy foundations and individuals, by annual dues paid by some 400,000 individual members, and through payment of court-ordered attorneys fees. In recent years, the ACLU Foundation in New York has taken in annual revenues of approximately $50 million – funds which are available for its aggressive legal and public relations campaigns. In 2003, the last year for which financial data are available, the ACLU Foundation reported more than $150 million in assets.
The Ford Foundation has been especially generous, pledging $7 million in 1999 to the ACLU’s endowment fund, and making additional donations in 2001, 2002 and 2003 amounting to $5.3 million. But Ford has been joined in these benefactions by several other well-known philanthropies. The Packard Foundation donated $1.6 million in 2001, and the Hewlett and Rockefeller Foundations donated $450,000 and $275,000, respectively, in 2002. In recent years, the ACLU has received $2.9 million from George Soros’ Open Society Institute. Numerous other foundations have donated lesser sums. All, it may be assumed, endorse the ACLU’s agenda of driving religion out of the public square and of weakening the government’s ability to fight terrorism.
Still, finding a public interest position straight out of law school was a challenge. Romero had pinned much of his hopes on winning the ACLU’s Marvin M. Karpatkin Fellowship, but he was a runner-up. “I was absolutely crushed,” he says. He had loans to pay back, and he despaired about his family’s reaction. Revuelta told him to hang in there.
His patience paid off: he was awarded a fellowship at the Rockefeller Foundation just before graduation.
From 1990 to 2001, Romero’s career flourished. He left Rockefeller and rose through the ranks of the Ford Foundation, distinguishing himself not only as a grant maker but also as an advisor to nonprofits, a manager of people, and a master of back-office systems. Susan V. Berresford, the Ford Foundation president, notes that there are a select few who can make smart, well-informed funding decisions, and there are another select few who can revamp office administration practices. Romero was the rare individual who could do both—and be charming at the same time. “He has it all,” she says. “I’m glad that the ACLU was able to see it and hire him.”
Romero was executive director for exactly one week when the September 11 attacks occurred. As the first 747 jet crashed into the World Trade Center towers, he was in Washington, D.C., about to address his first meeting of the organization’s biggest donors. A staff member directed him to a television, he saw the mayhem, and quickly took the podium away from another speaker.
And now here’s the story.
ACLU Counsel and Gay Rights Champion Found Dead In DC Park
8/30/09-by Paula Brooks
Washington DC police sources are telling Lez Get Real, that a body found Friday in a wooded section of Rock Creek Park is that of ACLU State Legislative Counsel Larry Frankel. Rock Creek Park is located in Northwest DC.
Police say that a jogger running along a path in the park just south of Beach Drive and north of Massachusetts Ave NW, about 11 a.m. Friday saw something floating in the water that later turned out to be Frankels body.
US Park Police initially responded to the joggers 911 call and were later joined on the scene by investigators from the homicide division of the DC Metro Police.
A Metro DC Police spokesman confirmed this morning that the body was indeed that of Frankel and said that homicide detectives are continuing to investigate his death, but would offer no cause of death or comment further on the case pending official release of autopsy results.
Frankel, 52, had served as both Executive Director and Legislative Director for the ACLU of Pennsylvania for many years before becoming the State Legislative Counsel for the National ACLU here in Washington. Frankel joined the ACLU’s Washington Legislative Office last year and oversaw the support to the 53 ACLU affiliate offices across the country.
Pennsylvania Rep Mark Cohen said on his blog this morning that Frankel was a “proud gay man, he was militant on the issue of gay marriage, believing that it was far more important to keep the legal option of gay marriage by defeating a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage than to enact civil unions legislation, an uphill battle that some, including myself, thought was winnable. His views on gay marriage were somewhat vindicated when four New England states and the state of Iowa legalized gay marriage this year.”
