"The IPS is described as a Washinton-based "Think Factory", which helped
train extremist who incite violence in the United States and whose
educational research serves as a cover for intrigue and political
agitation" (FBI file 175-398).  Another description given is that the
"IPS apparently exercises considerable influence in the New Left
Movement and may have as its goal the destruction of the United States
Government/"  Mainstream media, usually very liberal, has described the
IPS as follows:  Wall Street Journal... "A funnel for disinformation",
Forbes.... "A radical Washington propaganda mill", National Review...
"The perfect intellectual front for Soviet activities which would be
resisted if they were to originate openly from the KGB."

DEREK SHEARER, a member of IPS, has been described as one of Bill
Clinton's closest friends.  Roger Altman (former Sec. of Treasury)
stated, "Derek is a very old and close friend of Bill Clinton's, and
among the advisors he is probably the oldest and closest friend." 
George Stephanopolis describes Shearer as both "a friend and advisor". 
Derek Shearer is the step-brother of Strobe Talbott, who was the former
editor of TIME magazine, and Bill Clinton's roommate at Oxford.  Derek's
sister, Brooke Shearer, is a very close friend of Hillary Clinton, and
is her frequent travelling companion.  Prior to the 1992 election,
Clinton appointed Shearer as his top economic advisor (Wall Street
Journal - Sept. 11, 1992).

In 1980, Shearer wrote a book titled, "Economic Democracy: The Challange
of the 1980's", in which he explained, "Socialism has a bad name in
America and no amount of wishful thinking is going to change that... the
words, economic democracy are an adequate replacement."  Shearer
proposed the economic dismantling of American's free enterprise system
and that all businesses be controlled by government socialist planners. 
Shearer states that his 'economic democracy' is fashioned in part
according to the teachings of Antonio Gramsci, founder of the Italian
Communist Party, and one of this century's formost Marxist theoreticians
(from Shearer's book).  In the 1970's Derek Shearer created and ran the
platform of Tom Hayden in Santa Monica, California.  The platform was
called the Campaign for Economic Democracy.  Shearer's wife was elected
mayor of Santa Monica, and she appointed Derek and fellow activists to
the City Commission.  Shearer's anti-business edicts crippled Santa
Monica's economy and earned that city the nickname of the "Peoples
Republic of Santa Monica."  Shearer has spoken of a plan to elect a
socialist minded President who would help advance his Economic Democracy
program (National Review, Sept. 14, 1992).

STROBE TALBOTT, as mentioned above, is the step-brother of Derek
Shearer, and formerly an editor of TIME magazine, and earlier a roommate
of Bill Clinton's at Oxford.  Talbott is a member of the Council on
Foreign Relations (CFR).  Since it's founding in 1921, the CFR has been
dedicated to forming a socialist world government under the auspices of
the U.N. Other members of the CFR, include IPS co-founder, Richard
Barnet, and Cora Rubin (dau. of Samuel Rubin), Bill Clinton, Al Gore,
and most of Clinton's cabinet.

LEON PANETTA, LES ASPIN, and ANTHONY LAKE are all members of the IPS,
with Anthony Lake serving in the capacity of instructor at the
Washington-based school.  All three are CFR members as well.

MORTON HALPRIN, a member of IPS, was considered (but rejected) as
Assistant Secretary of Defense under Aspin. Halprin has been one of the
foremost supporters of turning U.S. troops over to the U.N. command. 
Halprin was a friend and assistant of Frank Donner, a member of the
Communist Party USA, who advocated the dissolution of all U.S.
intelligence agencies.

EDWARD F. FEIGHAN (D-Ohio, retired) was Bill Clinton's campaign
Communications Director.  Feighan has worked closely with both the IPS
and the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA), which was co-
founded by Jahn Gerassi and Michael Locker of Castro's Venceremos
Brigade (FBI File SF 100-66966 AIRTEL & FBI file NYFO #105-86160). 
NACLA recieved major funding from IPS, and has become a direct support
group for Marxist insurgencies worldwide.

JOHNETTA COLE is closely associated with IPS and other anti-American
groups.  Cole was in a leadership role in the Pro-Castro Vencenemos
Brigade, which was controlled by the Communist Party USA in conjunction
with Havana.  She was a founding sponsor of the U.S. Peace Council, a
Communist Party USA front organization.

HILLARY CLINTON first had contact with the IPS while at Yale.  She
served on the board of editors of the quarterly, Yale Review of Law and
Social Action.  The Spring 1970 issue featured and aricle by IPS
director Robert Borosage.  While serving as Director and Chair of the
Board of the New World Foundation in 1987/1988 Hillary Clinton gave
money to several far left groups including IPS.

In addition, Hillary Clinton gave money money to pro-communist groups,
who were closely associated with IPS. Hillary gave $5000.00 to the
Committee in Support of the People of El Salvador (CISPES - a supporter
of Marxist  Salavadoran guerillas), and which has been classified as a
communist front organization.  Hillary gave $15,000.00 to the National
Lawyers Guild, an official adjunct of the Communist Party USA. 
Committee on Un-American Activities, House Report 3123 on National
Lawyers Guild - 1950: "NLG is the foremost legal bulwark of the
Communist Party (and) it's front organizations (which) since its
inception has never failed to rally to the legal defense of the
Communist Party and individual members thereof, including known
espionage agents."  IPS Chairman, Peter Weiss, served on the Board of
Trustees of the National Lawyers Guild.

For a preview of what a Hillary Clinton Presidency would look like, just look to Bill Clinton's. One Communist sympathizer and hard core Leftist after another appointed to key position. Most were friends and close associates of Hillary.

Anti-American radical Johnetta Cole was Clinton's first appointment as Secy of Education. Her past as a Commmunist and Castro sympathizer is a matter of historical record.

” Derek Shearer is the step-brother of Strobe Talbott, who was the former editor of TIME magazine, and Bill Clinton’s roommate at Oxford.”

Strobe Talbot also worked in W.J. Clinton’s cabinet. This is just a recollection I can’t exactly place, but shortly after Clinton left office Strobe Talbot publicly advocated a world government. Days later (just to show he was avant-garde too), Talbot’s buddy, ex-president Clinton, also announced that he favored a world government.

CFR is the organization Fred Thompson is a member of. I keep saying, do not make the same mistake of electing someone because the have star power or appear electable. This is the problem we have been having for a long time. Finding someone who is not associated with these organizations. Fred Thompson should be questioned throughly on this. We have found out that the Bush and Clinton families are linked. How many more are linked and is it worth it to vote for them just because they are electable? We need to take a good hard long look at all of our candidates and the ones that pass; we should stand behind and promote like there’s no tommorrow.

I agree completely and am happy to see this being mentioned on more and more threads here at FR.

You posted the rest of the article.

Why didn’t you include the lead disclaimer????

We want the MSM to report the truths about the Clinton’s, and if the article has been discredited, it’s got to be stated before the conservatives pick up and run with possibly fatally flawed info.

Thank you. I am glad to hear from someone that agrees. Isn’t this what we have been fighting for for so long. Not to vote in any more Rinos or worse.

It’s difficult I think. Once they hit office; they are usually off and running for whoever is telling them what to do.

Yes, I do know the opposition is going to say bad things about Fred; but you have to look and see his history to make up your mind.

May I suggest a book, "Covert Cadre" by S. Steven Powell, about the IPS.

This from the cover, "...More disturbing, in the case of the IPS, is its radical left nature and Soviet bloc agents participating in so many of its programs, quite often in opposition to American foreign policy.
The penetration of IPS activists-into our Congress, church bureaucracies, the press and the public policy community in Washington-is all but invisible to most Americans. But, as this pathbreaking book demonstrates, IPS has had a significant effect on the recent course of our democracy."

Published in 1987, this book names names in Congress, in religion, etc. It also details the direct influence of the KGB, Cuban, and other communist agents on the IPS. It documents the cooperation and support of the likes of John Kerry, Tom Harkin, John Conyers, Mark Hatfield, Ron Dellums and other U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives.

The introduction to the book is by David Horowitz, an ex-communist who runs

The IPS is a Marxist organization, but its members prefer to be called progressives..............At the most recent Democrat debate on television, Hillary Rodham Clinton labeled herself a "modern progressive" today's Democrat circles, progressive means socialist, they don't want to use the word socialist, hence the label "progressive"................

Excellent suggestion.

The importance and meaning of Hillary’s rejection of the term “Liberal” in favor of “Progressive” cannot be over emhasized.
