Another Brick In The Wall

Posted on April 6, 2010. Filed under: General Info | Tags: , , |

I am becoming increasingly aware the left has massive influence on what corporate profits fund.  The more I become aware of the more I know this is a huge fight we are in. Not only is the media complicit, but corporate America is complicit as well in the degradation of our morals, our liberty and our safety and well being as a nation.

 

Capital Research Center’s Foundation Watch recently released a document concluding the following two foundations fund programs that endanger the public by keeping dangerous young offenders on the streets by theorizing that detaining these young offenders sets them up to be criminals.

Discover the Networks offers the following information on these foundations:

The Annie E. Casey Foundation was established in 1948 by Jim Casey, one of the founders of United Parcel Service, along with his two brothers and his sister, in honor of their mother. What started as a foundation devoted to supporting child welfare and long-term foster care, has refocused, over the decades, into an organization emphasizing multiculturalism and race-based programs for minorities.

The Casey Foundation favors the presence of a large, centralized government exercising control over the health care services, employment, and personal incomes of American citizens. To influence policymakers, program administrators, the news media, and other audiences in supporting innovations it regards as progressive, the Foundation led a consortium of philanthropies that provided funds to the Urban Institute for a comprehensive, nonpartisan research project called Assessing the New Federalism. Its findings confirmed the Casey Foundation’s belief that adequate incomes and child care arrangements are best ensured by increased government spending and an expansion of federal welfare bureaucracy.

Because it believes that the federal government does too little to alleviate poverty in America, the Foundation has identified the “challenge of helping rebuild distressed communities” as its top grant-making priority for the immediate future. To address the problem of poverty (and its associated ills), the Casey Foundation in 1995 launched a “Jobs Initiative Program” to provide funding and support “for community-based initiatives [in such fields as construction, healthcare, manufacturing, and teleservices] in five cities in order to help young, low-income workers find meaningful jobs.”

The Foundation also oversees initiatives to increase the pay and lighten the workload of social service employees; to “improve the access of disadvantaged young adults to family-supporting employment”; to provide mental health services and discussion-group forums “for children and families in disadvantaged neighborhoods”; to fund “a wide range of organizations that work directly with disadvantaged children, youth, and families, primarily in Baltimore City”; “to improve housing and social and physical infrastructure”; and to “increase public and private investment in [low-income] neighborhoods.”

Another area toward which the Casey Foundation directs its philanthropy is criminal justice. Frowning upon incarceration as a means of motivating youthful offenders to reform their lives, the Foundation established its Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI) in 1992 “to reduce the number of children inappropriately incarcerated; to minimize the number of youth who fail to appear in court or commit delinquent acts; to redirect public funds toward successful alternatives; and to improve conditions of confinement.” The Casey Foundation website features articles lauding protesters who try to prevent the construction or expansion of juvenile detention centers.

The Foundation’s opposition to the incarceration of teenagers is based on the premise that every stage of the juvenile-justice system, from arrest through sentencing, is rife with racial injustice. “Nationwide,” the Foundation laments, “minority youth represent two-thirds of detained youth, but only about one-third of the total youth population. . . . It is impossible to talk about juvenile detention reform without talking about the disproportionate confinement of youth of color.” In the Foundation’s analysis, this imbalance is largely a function of racism and discrimination.

In 2006 the Casey Foundation issued a report titled: “Race Matters: Unequal Opportunity Within Criminal Justice.” This study concluded that the U.S. justice system is rife with “embedded racial inequities” that “work against women and men of color”; “racial stereotyping and discrimination”; “disproportionality at every step of the criminal justice process”; “statutory biases”; “poverty’s interaction with race in criminal defense”; “disproportionate imprisonment”; “differential post-release consequences”; “disparate impact on families and children”; and “disparate impact on neighborhoods.”

The Casey Foundation produces a policy magazine called AdvoCasey, which highlights “issues and policies that affect the lives of children and families in the United States.” In addition, the Casey Foundation website provides links to a number of publications on such topics as: child welfare; neighborhood development; economic development; welfare reform; jobs; education; foster care; government reform and public policy; teen pregnancy; juvenile justice; and leadership development.

W.K. Kellogg Foundation

  • Assets: $7,331,997,198 (2006)
  • Grants Received: $292,724,699 (2004)
  • Grants Awarded: $319,000,000 (2006)

Will Keith Kellogg, who created the Kellogg cereal company, established the W. K. Kellogg Foundation in 1930.  As a matter of principle, he generally opposed most forms of economic assistance, placing greater value on the long-term process of striving to overcome obstacles and become prosperous through hard work. Believing that education was the key to all long-term success, most of Kellogg’s early donations were geared towards helping children.

After Kellogg died in 1951, his Foundation drifted leftward politically, and then made a major move in that direction in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when it began to focus heavily on funding groups and causes that sought to counteract what they deemed the widespread injustices against minorities in the United States. To this day, the Foundation strives “to facilitate and assist in the process of social change for the betterment of people in society, particularly in the interest of the most vulnerable and marginalized populations.” Making large grants to organizations that advocate on behalf of such “vulnerable” groups as American Indians and illegal aliens, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation seeks to bridge the gap “between poor and rich, between informal and formal leaders, … between social activists and business leaders,” and “between the haves and the have-nots.”  These efforts are focused in three regions of the world – the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, and southern Africa.

The Kellogg Foundation’s perception of America as a racist nation is given voice by its CEO and President, William Richardson, who has implemented mandatory “racism workshops” for all Foundation staff members, to help them “loo[k] at some tough issues, including white male privilege and the subtle ways that racism manifests itself in modern organizations.” Richardson adds that recent years “have seen an increase in the inequality in income and a growing concentration of wealth. … We’ve also seen an increasing disparity between what’s been called ‘the information haves and the information have-nots. … Across America, we see other symptoms of imbalance in the social structure. … The prison rate among young blacks is approaching epidemic proportions. … The national unemployment rate for Native Americans is approximately 50 percent … Among American blacks, unemployment has historically been twice as high as it is for whites. … Wherever we look, our society seems increasingly divided, by the color of our skins, by our cultural heritage, and by the balance in our savings accounts, if we even have one. We continue to hear about practices such as redlining — illegally restricting home purchases by people of color, racial tracking in schools, and racial profiling. Minorities and the poor even suffer from environmental discrimination. Toxic waste is often found near low-income neighborhoods since their residents have usually lacked the political influence to protest successfully.”

The Kellogg Foundation’s Board Chair is Hanmin Liu, a longtime community organizer who has been a Trustee on the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Board of Directors since 1996, and who is also President of the United States-China Educational Institute.

Among the recent recipients of Kellogg Foundation grants are the Tides Foundation; the Tides Center; the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN); the United States Student Association; the Waterkeeper Alliance; the Council on Foundations; Save The Children Fund; the American Civil Liberties Union; the Center for Community Change; World Vision International; the National Council of La Raza; the Mexican American Legal Defense & Education Fund; the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People; the Natural Resources Defense Council; the Childrens Defense Fund; the Center for Rural Affairs; the Environmental Defense Fund; National Public Radio; the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy; the Food Alliance; the World Resources Institute; the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities; the Environmental Grantmakers Association; the Earth Island Institute; Friends of the Earth; the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy; the Consumers Union; the Urban Institute; the World Wildlife Fund; the Urban League; the Nature Conservancy; the Alternative Energy Resources Organization; Ecotrust; the Population Resource Center; the Rockefeller Family Fund; the Ms. Foundation for Women; the Women’s Action Group; the Southern Coalition for Educational Equity; the Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program; the World Hope Foundation; the Womens Funding Network; Vigorous Interventions In Ongoing Natural Settings (VISIONS); the United Nations Foundation; the Trust for Conservation Innovation; the Southern Coalition for Educational Equity; the Public Sector Consultants; New Paradigm Partners; the Native American Rights Fund; the National Resource Center for the Healing of Racism; the National Congress of American Indians; the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies; the Interfaith Hospitality Network; the Institute for Native Pacific Education and Culture; Humana People to People in South Africa; the Handgun Epidemic Lowering Plan Network; the First Nations Development Institute; Duke University; Columbia University; the Centers for New Horizons; the Center for Afro Study and Research; Business for Social Responsibility; Black Veterans for Social Justice; the Aspen Institute; Americans for Indian Opportunity; and the American Farmland Trust.

The New American, State of Our Decline 1994
These foundations (Ford,Carnige,Rockefellar) lavished so much money onto communist and socialist causes that demands were made for Congress to investigate. In 1953, the Congressional Special Committee to Investigate the Tax-Exempt Foundations was established. Norman Dodd was appointed staff director of the committee. His extensive investigations led him to charge: “The foundation world is a coordinated, well-directed system, the purpose of which is to ensure that the wealth of our country shall be used to divorce it from the ideas which brought it into being. The foundations are the biggest, single influence in collectivism.”

In a personal interview with Ford Foundation President H. Rowan Gaither, Dodd was shocked when Gaither admitted that he operated the foundation under directives “to the effect that we should make every effort to so alter life in the United States as to make possible a comfortable merger with the Soviet Union.” Dodd was equally shocked by revelations in the minutes of the Carnegie Foundation. According to the minutes, Carnegie’s board of trustees determined soon after World War I that “we must control education in the United States.”

The Carnegie plotters, said Dodd, recognized that the task “was too big for them alone, so they approached the Rockefeller Foundation with a suggestion that the portion of education which could be considered domestic be handled by the Rockefeller Foundation and that portion which is international should be handled by the [Carnegie] Endowment.”

The deal was struck and American education has been ravaged by foundation-financed subversion ever since: evolution, removal of prayer and the Bible, school consolidation, removal of phonics, sex education, global education, textbook subversion, teacher unionization, forced busing, and on and on. And today the same Carnegie-Rockefeller-Ford revolutionaries are promoting false solutions — national goals, national certification, choice, vouchers, charter schools, etc. — to “solve” the crisis they have created. If adopted, these “solutions” will complete the revolution for the “new socialist society” envisioned by Comrade Foster.
