The CFR scam


Ryan Sager of The New York Post has broken the story of how CFR is really a vast scam.
Campaign financer eform has been an immense scam perpetrated by  people by a cadre of left—wing foundations and disguised as a "mass movement."
But don't take my word for it. One of the chief scammers, Sean Treglia, a former program officer of the Pew Charitable Trusts, confesses it all in an astonishing videotape I obtained earlier this week.

The tape  of a conference held at USC's Annenberg School for Communication in March of 2004  shows Treglia expounding to a gathering of academics, experts and journalists (none of whom, apparently, ever wrote about Treglia's remarks) on just how Pew and other left—wing foundations plotted to create a fake grassroots movement to hoodwink Congress.

"I'm going to tell you a story that I've never told any reporter," Treglia says on the tape. "Now that I'm several months away from Pew and we have campaign—finance reform, I can tell this story."

Of particular interest is the way the press, including most especially NPR, was enlisted in this effort by rich leftist foundations to limit the free debate the Constitution guarantees us.
