Who gives a shiite. I question why he did this, he claiims he remained silent for personell reasons and professional$$$
 A bunch of things bother me about this, the regimes-promotion of gays ( he jumped on the POL wagon), and most of all the fact they assert he is a jouralist..

NEW YORK (AP) — Anderson Cooper revealed on Monday that he is gay, ending years of reluctance to talk about his personal life in public.

The CNN ????? ?journalist?????? wrote in an online letter that he had kept his sexual orientation private for personal and professional reasons, but came to think that remaining silent had given some people a mistaken impression that he was ashamed.

I tried to find a reason to give a shit about this.  I just can't find one.  He's gay.   I don't care.  He's a reporter.  I don't care.  His reason for coming out now? I don't care.  They are his reasons.  He cares. I don't.  In fact, if you walk into a windowless room, turn out the lights and cover your eyes, you will actually be able to see all of my care.

I'm waiting for him to come out and admit he's CIA now.

  Hard to say what his motives are.  He's gotta be worth millions.  Of course he has CIA CONNECTIONS.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anderson_Cooper

Anderson Hays Cooper was born on June 3, 1967,[1] the younger son of the writer Wyatt Emory Cooper and the artist, designer, writer, and heiress Gloria Vanderbilt. His maternal grandparents were millionaire equestrian Reginald Claypoole Vanderbilt and socialite Gloria (Morgan) Vanderbilt, and his maternal great-great-great-grandfather was Cornelius Vanderbilt, of the prominent Vanderbilt shipping and railroad fortune.


http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=15416



Anderson Cooper has long traded on his biography, carving a niche for himself as the most human of news anchors. But there's one aspect of his past that the silver-haired CNN star has never made public: the months he spent training for a career with the Central Intelligence Agency.

Following his sophomore and junior years at Yale—a well-known recruiting ground for the CIA—Cooper spent his summers interning at the agency's monolithic headquarters in Langley, Virginia, in a program for students interested in intelligence work. His involvement with the agency ended there, and he chose not to pursue a job with the agency after graduation, according to a CNN spokeswoman, who confirmed details of Cooper's CIA involvement to Radar.

"Whatever summer jobs or internships our anchors had in college couldn't be less consequential," she added. He has kept the experience a secret, sources say, out of concern that, if widely known, it might compromise his ability to travel in foreign countries and even possibly put him at greater risk from terrorists.

"He doesn't want to be any more of a target than he already is," says one Anderson confidante. On the other hand, as Bob Woodruff and others have learned, American journalists are already prime targets in the world's conflict zones, and are typically accused of having CIA ties even where none exist. And by not disclosing his training before now, Cooper has arguably made it into a potential issue. "It creates the appearance of something smelly there," says a former CNN official who knows Cooper. (Particularly in light of the period Anderson spent studying Vietnamese at the University of Hanoi after college. Soon after, Cooper apparently gave up his Bond fantasy to pursue a career in journalism—except for a brief period when he starred as host of ABC's reality show, The Mole.)

Andy is known to most of the world as Anderson 'Cooper'.

However to the NWO he known as little Andy 'VANDERBILT'.

His own self promotional down plays his CIA ties.  Of course.

Who is the Vanderbilt family?  They are the other Rockefeller family.  A similar aristocracy built out of the railroad / steam shipping era.

The claim today, much like that of the queen of England, is that the family have no more 'empire' to speak of.   I find it very hard to believe this family bloodline has been reduced to the 'ordinary' as their biographic writers try to sell us on today.

The word 'Robber Baron' was coined specifically for Cornelius Vanderbilt.  If the Rockefellers learned anything they learned it first from the Vanderbilts.

Fredrick Vanderbilt grandson of Cornelius was a hardcore commie.  (A MUST READ)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Vanderbilt_Field

With the Vanderbilts working hard on the farthest left agendas for the UN and a number of foundations, it is no wonder why this family wants to be wiped out of sight and out of the public's mind's eye.

Thanks now it makes sense...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anderson_Cooper
...
Anderson Hays Cooper was born on June 3, 1967,[1] the younger son of the writer Wyatt Emory Cooper and the artist, designer, writer, and heiress Gloria Vanderbilt. His maternal grandparents were millionaire equestrian Reginald Claypoole Vanderbilt and socialite Gloria (Morgan) Vanderbilt, and his maternal great-great-great-grandfather was Cornelius Vanderbilt, of the prominent Vanderbilt shipping and railroad fortune.[2] He is also a descendant, through his mother, of Brevet Major General Hugh Judson Kilpatrick, who was with Union General William T. Sherman in his March through Georgia.
...
Cooper's older brother, Carter Vanderbilt Cooper, committed suicide on July 22, 1988, at age 23, by jumping from the 14th-floor terrace of Vanderbilt's New York City penthouse apartment.

Gloria Vanderbilt later wrote about her son's death in the book A Mother's Story, in which she expresses her belief that the suicide was caused by a psychotic episode induced by an allergy to the anti-asthma prescription drug salbutamol. Anderson cites Carter's suicide for sparking his interest in journalism. "Loss is a theme that I think a lot about, and it’s something in my work that I dwell on. I think when you experience any kind of loss, especially the kind I did, you have questions about survival: Why do some people thrive in situations that others can’t tolerate? Would I be able to survive and get on in the world on my own?"[
...
Personal life
 
Cooper has two older half-brothers, Leopold Stanislaus "Stan" Stokowski (born 1950), and Christopher Stokowski (born 1952), from Gloria Vanderbilt's ten-year marriage to the conductor Leopold Stokowski.[32]

Who was the Commodore?
 
Cornelius Vanderbilt (1794-1877) was born to a poor family on Staten Island, N.Y. When he died, he was worth about $100 million and was the richest man in the country. He made his money through, first, shipping (which is where he got the nickname “Commodore”), and then railroads. He wasn’t much known for giving his money away, but he did pony up a gift of $1 million to help found what became Vanderbilt University. Before his gift, it was known as Central University.

http://www.biltmore.com/our_story/our_history/vanderbilt.asp
...

Cornelius Vanderbilt (1794-1877), known as the “Commodore,” that the family name became synonymous with extraordinary wealth.

Patriarch to a sizable family—including his wife of 53 years, Sophia, 13 children, 37 grand-children, and 27 great-grandchildren—Cornelius established what became the Vanderbilt custom of luxurious residences.
...
Upon his death, the Commodore left most of his $100 million estate—a sum that made him the wealthiest industrialist of his time—to his eldest son, William Henry Vanderbilt (1821-85). William Henry took over the family empire and eventually doubled its assets.

Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, the great-grandson of Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, the railroad magnate, built the hotel in 1912. Heir to millions, Alfred Vanderbilt had grown up in the palatial family house at 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, where Bergdorf-Goodman now stands. He built his new hotel primarily for permanent residents, to accommodate a new generation of the rich who sought freedom from household cares -- including himself. He took two floors at the top of the 22-story building.

 The architects Warren & Wetmore (co-designers of Grand Central Terminal, also build for the Vanderbilt family) designed one of the most widely admired buildings of the period, a slim, high rectangular mass of variegated steel-gray brick and cream-colored terra cotta.

The Old Beach Inn
An Enchanting B&B in the Heart of Historic Newport




Welcome to The Old Beach Inn. This elegant bed and breakfast inn was built in 1879 during Newport's Gilded Age, and was once the home of the affluent physician, Dr. Steven Powell and his wife, Henrietta. Dr. Powell was a sea captain during the China Trade and oriental influences are evident throughout the house. For many years he served as the Commodore of the Newport Yacht Club. His love of the sea and sailing inspired him to name the house The Anchorage and if you look closely you might see the green anchor tucked into the highest peak of the house. Mrs. Powell was originally from New Haven and was the great-granddaughter of Noah Webster (of dictionary fame). Today their home has found new life as one of Newport's most gracious inns.

The Role of Skull and Bones in the Growth of the Morgan Bank

Before 1838, when George Peabody set up a brokerage office in London, there was no real need for a stock exchange in America, since there was no capital surplus large enough to finance the construction of new infrastructure; almost all major capital was raised from foreign investment.  

But opium changed that. Profits from illicit trade in China were such that American entrepreneurs were able to bring huge profits back and reinvest it as equity in such industries as New England textile factories and railroads. Nevertheless, the profits were no sufficient initially to finance all the demands for funding of public infrastructure projects desired by state and municipal govern-ments.  Peabody marketed such bonds and other securities in London to raise necessary funds for roads, canals and the like

Reds (1981)

Storyline
This movie tells the true story of John Reed, a radical American journalist around the time of World War I. He soon meets Louise Bryant, a respectable married woman, who dumps her husband for Reed and becomes an important feminist and radical in her own right.

After involvement with labor and political disputes in the US, they go to Russia in time for the October Revolution in 1917, when the Communists siezed power. Inspired, they return to the US, hoping to lead a similar revolution. A particularly fascinating aspect of the movie is the inclusion of interviews with "witnesses", the real-life surviving participants in the events of the movie.
Written by Reid Gagle  

This gets interesting with the Leary Mary Pinchot / LSD / Cord Myer / S&B / CIA / Kennedy unknown scandal....

The Pinchot were a S&B family with connections to the beginning of the American Psychical Research Society / Eugenics / conservation movement the Gifford and Amos Pinchot Brothers  related to the wealthy New York Enos family, pals with Teddy Roosevelt ...


Mary's Pinchot's dad:  the Progressive Party who had helped fund the socialist magazine The Masses.
http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/USApinchotA.htm

Amos Pinchot was born in 1863. The son of a wealthy businessman, Pinchot studied law in New York City. In 1900 he married Gertrude Minturn. The couple had two children, Rosamund and Gifford. Pinchot held left-wing views and in 1911 helped establish the radical journal The Masses.

In 1912 Pinchot helped formed the Progressive Party. Later that year Theodore Roosevelt and Hiram Johnson became the party's candidates for the presidential election. The proposed program included women's suffrage, direct election of senators, anti-trust legislation and the prohibition of child labour. In winning 4,126,020 votes Roosevelt defeated William H. Taft, the official candidate of the Republican Party. However, he received less votes than the Democratic Party candidate, Woodrow Wilson.

Pinchot believed that the First World War had been caused by the imperialist competitive system. This was the point of view expressed by The Masses.

In July, 1917, it was claimed by the authorities that articles by Floyd Dell and Max Eastman and cartoons by Art Young, Boardman Robinson and H. J. Glintenkamp had violated the Espionage Act. Under this act it was an offence to publish material that undermined the war effort. The legal action that followed forced the journal to cease publication. In April, 1918, after three days of deliberation, the jury failed to agree on the guilt of the men.

The second trial was held in September, 1918. John Reed, who had recently returned from Russia, was also arrested and charged with the original defendants. This time eight of the twelve jurors voted for acquittal and the defendants walked free on October 5, 1918.

[ reference See Movie "Reds"  
http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/Jreed.htm


Reed's time in New York City turned him into a left-wing activist and during this period he joined the Socialist Party of America. "I couldn't help but observe the ugliness of poverty and all its train of evil, the cruel inequality between rich people who had too many motor-cars and poor people who didn't have enough to eat. It didn't come to me from books that the workers produced all the wealth of the world, which went to those who did not earn it." Floyd Dell later recalled: "He was a great, husky, untamed youth of immense energies and infantine countenance."

Reed also met Mabel Dodge. Her apartment in New York City became a place where intellectuals and artists met. This included Lincoln Steffens, Robert Edmond Jones, Margaret Sanger, Louise Bryant, Bill Haywood, Alexander Berkman, Emma Goldman, Frances Perkins, Amos Pinchot, Frank Harris, Charles Demuth, Andrew Dasburg, Albert Rhys Williams, George Sylvester Viereck, John Collier, Carl Van Vechten and Amy Lowell....

 Reds is a 1981 American epic film that was co-written, produced, directed by and starred Warren Beatty. It centers on the life and career of John Reed, the revolutionary communist, journalist, and writer who chronicled the Russian Revolution in his book Ten Days that Shook the World. Beatty stars in the lead role alongside Diane Keaton, as Louise Bryant, and Jack Nicholson as Eugene O'Neill.

Pinchot and Vanderbilt connection ---- >

The History of America's Largest Home
 
Building Biltmore was, at the time, one of the largest undertakings in the history of American residential architecture and the results were astounding. Over a six-year period, an entire community of craftsmen worked to build the country's premier home. The estate boasted its own brick factory, woodworking shop, and a three-mile railway spur for transporting materials to the site.

A New World Château
 
The celebrated architect Richard Morris Hunt modeled the house on three châteaux built in 16th-century France. It would feature 4 acres of floor space, 250 rooms, 34 bedrooms, 43 bathrooms, and 65 fireplaces. The basement alone would house a swimming pool, gymnasium and changing rooms, bowling alley, servants' quarters, kitchens, and more.

An Environmental Wonder
 
The grounds of the 125,000-acre estate were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the creator of New York's Central Park and the father of American landscape architecture. He not only developed acres of gardens and parkland, but in his efforts to protect the environment and reclaim over-farmed land, Olmsted established America's first managed forest.

A True Family Home
 
George Vanderbilt officially opened the home to friends and family on Christmas Eve in 1895. He had created a country retreat where he could pursue his passion for art, literature, and horticulture. After marrying the American Edith Stuyvesant Dresser (1873–1958) in Paris during the summer of 1898, George and his new bride came to live at the estate. Their only child, Cornelia (1900–1976), was born and grew up at Biltmore.

Pisgah National Forest

Established in 1915, Pisgah National Forest remains the oldest national forest in North Carolina. Originally a forest owned by the Vanderbilts, the federal government bought 500,000 acres of forest land from the wealthy family. Today, Pisgah National Forest continues to attract tourists to the western mountains of North Carolina in Buncombe County.

[ 1 square miles = 640 acres ----  500K acres = 780 Square Miles!!!!!! ]
...
When George Washington Vanderbilt III constructed his iconic Biltmore home in the 1890s, he sought to create a forest reserve as part of the estate. Vanderbilt enlisted Carl A. Schenck and Gifford Pinchot to foster the reserve at the Biltmore. Despite efforts to establish a forestry school, Schenck’s Biltmore Forest School, founded in 1898, failed to survive past the 1910s.

On March 1, 1911, the United States Congress authorized the Weeks Act, allowing the National Park Service to buy up land on the eastern seaboard for conservation and public use. By the mid-1910s, George Vanderbilt had passed away and upkeep of the Biltmore Estate fell in the hands of his widowed wife. Four years after the Weeks Act, Mrs. Vanderbilt sold about 500,000 acres of land to the federal government. Mrs. Vanderbilt could have sold the land at a much higher price but according to William S. Powell [ Newport Commodore Powell?, she “realized that only the federal government could preserve the forest, which became the Pisgah National Forest and remains roughly the same size” (p. 889).

At 500,000 acres, Pisgah forest encompasses 15 North Carolina counties, and due to its large size, the park is divided into three separate districts: the Grandfather District, the Appalachian District, and the Pisgah District.

The Historic Jekyll Island Club

The club once boasted a membership that included the Rockefeller, Goodyear, Morgan and Vanderbilt families.
...
It all started when a former Confederate officer, Newton Finney, joined with his brother-in-law John Eugene DuBignon in a plan to purchase almost all of Jekyll Island. The beautiful expanse of oceanfront land is one of the famed Golden Isles of Georgia.

Finney had once served on the staff of General Robert E. Lee and he and DuBignon planned to develop Jekyll Island as an
exclusive hunting preserve for gentlemen form the nation's wealthiest families. Their project exceeded their wildest dreams.

By the time construction began on the famed Jekyll Island Clubhouse, now a hotel, in 1886, the island had been sold to the new Jekyll Island Club, an exclusive entity that began with 53 members/investors. Among the names on the club's membership roll were J.P. Morgan, Joseph Pulitzer, William K. Vanderbilt and Marshall Field.
...
In 1915, for example, AT&T president Theodore Vail placed the first transcontinental telephone call from the island.

A secret meeting on Jekyll Island in 1907, following a severe run on the nation's banks, led to the formation of what was called the Aldrich Plan. This outline for a system of financial security eventually formed the basis of today's Federal Reserve, one of the most powerful financial entities in the world.

http://www.jekyllclub.com/about-us/club-history/
...
Finance, as well as politics, was of paramount concern to many club members. J.P. Morgan could create or quell economic panics on Wall Street with the financial resources at his personal command. George Baker, head of the First National Bank of New York, and James Stillman, head of the National City Bank of New York, also members of the Jekyll Island Club, were nearly as wealthy as Morgan.

In 1907 when a particularly virulent economic panic caused a run on the banks, one of these three men paved the way for a secret meeting on Jekyll. Traveling under assumed names, Senator Nelson Aldrich, four other bankers of national importance, and the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury made their way to Jekyll posing as duck hunters. Meetings the following week led to the development of the Aldrich Plan, which called for a centralized banking structure for the country. Although Congress did not pass the plan in 1912, President Woodrow Wilson and others used the Aldrich Plan as the basis for another plan that became the Federal Reserve Act, establishing the Federal Reserve System.

Guaranty Trust Company of New York, 1911-12 (after merger with Morton Trust)

Directors: Levi P. Morton, Chairman; Charles H. Allen, George F. Baker, Edward J. Berwind, Urban H. Broughton, Edmund C. Converse, T. De Witt Cuyler, Henry P. Davison, James B. Duke, Robert W. Goelet, Daniel Guggenheim, Edwin Hawley, Alexander J. Hemphill, Walter S. Johnston, Augustus D. Juilliard, Thomas W. Lamont, Edgar L. Marston, John R. Morron, Gates W. McGarrah, Charles A. Peabody, William H. Porter, Samuel Rea, Daniel G. Reid, Thomas F. Ryan, Charles H. Sabin, William D. Sloane, Valentine P. Snyder, Harry Payne Whitney, and Albert H. Wiggin. (New York Times, Mar. 9, 1911, p. 13.) Allen, Duke, Ryan, Snyder, and Whitney were from the Morton Trust.

Baker, Juilliard and Morton were directors of both. Broughton left the board in 1912, and George J. Gould and William K. Vanderbilt Jr. joined it. (Display Ad 19. New York Times, Oct. 18, 1912 p. 15.)

In 1912, the Guaranty Trust expanded into a new building at Broadway and Liberty Street. The $150,000 vault in the basement and sub-basement was 26 by 36 feet and 23 feet high, the second largest in the world after the Carnegie Trust Company's vault.

It was guarded with 27,000 burglar alarm wires, and was 28 inches thick, armored on the outside with 700 steel railway rails on end, filled with concrete. The door was 36 inches thick and weighed 40 tons, and required 22 horses to transport it. Some paving stones on South Street reportedly sank several inches from its weight. (Forty-Ton Door For Vault. New York Times, Sep. 7, 1912.)

On Fredrick Vanderbilt Fields's foundation run 'Institute of Pacific Relations'
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Vanderbilt_Field

"In his autobiography, Field confesses that during this period he "uncritically accepted" Soviet accounts of their political purges and that was "taken in." "Stalin was infallible," he recalled. "[A]ll my Communist surroundings told me so. So was [American Communist Party Secretary Earl] Browder, although on a lower level of sanctity, and so were the other CP [Communist Party] leaders." At a time when other erstwhile loyal friends of the Soviet Union were becoming disillusioned by Stalin's Great Purge, Field defended the bloody Moscow show trials, saying, "because Comrade Stalin says so, we have to believe the trials are just."

Anderson Cooper has long traded on his biography, carving a niche for himself as the most human of news anchors. But there's one aspect of his past that the silver-haired CNN star has never made public: the months he spent training for a career with the Central Intelligence Agency.

Following his sophomore and junior years at Yale—a well-known recruiting ground for the CIA—Cooper spent his summers interning at the agency's monolithic headquarters in Langley

Interesting the Vanderbilts are an S&B family....which are also CIA

 Marilyn Monroe CIA / FBI murder Vanderbilt connection?
http://tangibleinfo.blogspot.com/2007/07/fbicia-murdered-marilyn-monroe.html

Vanderbilt's OSS / CIA / Tavistock / CFR connection.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cia-drugs/message/53025

In Frederick Vanderbilt Field's "From Right to Left: An Autobiography" (1983) we learn that Dr Greenson's "spy" Eunice Murray continually "reported" to Field (so to speak) about Marilyn. 



Following the "pecking order" upward for Marilyn's psychiatrists --Greenson, Hohenberg, and Kris, all virtually taking orders from Anna Freud-- takes us straight to TAVISTOCK in the UK.  Doing the same with Frederick Vanderbilt Field (tracking his education backwards) leads us, surprisingly, to the Rhodes "Round Table" of "initiates" AKA Milner's Kindergarten, responsible for not only the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) but the Institute of Pacific Relations on these shores ...  It's reasonable to assume, then, that the two streams (Marilyn's psychiatrists [with her Method acting  "gurus," closely associated with them] and Field's circle in Mexico) converged at the top, in a clandestine network that also included British Intelligence, the CIA's partner in "mind control."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Vanderbilt_Field

Frederick Vanderbilt Field (April 13, 1905 – February 1, 2000) was an American leftist political activist and a great-great-grandson of railroad tycoon Cornelius "Commodore" Vanderbilt, disinherited by his wealthy relatives for his radical political views. Field became a specialist on Asia and was a prime staff member and supporter of the Institute of Pacific Relations. He supported so many openly Communist organizations that he was accused of being a member of the Communist Party, and was a top target of the American government during the peak of 1950s McCarthyism. Field denied ever having been a party member, but admitted in his memoirs that "I suppose I was what the Party called a 'member at large.'"
 
A 1923 graduate of the private Hotchkiss School, Field went on to attend Harvard University, where he participated in undergraduate life as chief editor of the Harvard Crimson and a member of the Hasty Pudding Club. Matriculating in 1927, Field spent a year at the London School of Economics, where he was exposed to the ideas of Harold Laski, the Fabian socialist political theorist, economist, and writer.
 
First coming into politics as a supporter of the Democratic Party after returning to the United States, he was disillusioned by the Democrats' unwillingness to take a more uncompromising position toward social reform, and endorsed Norman Thomas, the Socialist presidential candidate in 1928, becoming a member of the Socialist Party. Having attracted significant attention as an unlikely endorsement for Norman Thomas, Field was cut off without a penny by Frederick William Vanderbilt, his great-uncle, from whom he had been promised an estimated fortune of more than $70 million.
 
Upon Field's return from England in 1928, Edward Carter of the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR) introduced him to Y.C. James Yen, who was then in the United States to raise money for his Chinese Mass Education Movement. After touring the country as Yen's personal assistant, Field joined the IPR, a group which brought together government and non-governmental elites to study problems of the Pacific rim nations, as an assistant to Carter. Field "took no pay; he was one of the institute's most generous contributors." He published several reference works on the Asian economy and organized conferences and publications.
 
As he grew older, his politics became more radical. He described the IPR as "a bourgeois research-educational organization" funded by the Rockefeller and Carnegie foundations and some of the biggest corporations in the U.S., which he claimed subsidized his publication of proposals "as anti-capitalistic as the articles he wrote for The New Masses and The Daily Worker." New Masses was identified by one scholar as the "semi-official spokesman of Communist letters."  He was also Executive Vice-President of the Council for Pan American Democracy, which John Dewey's Committee for Cultural Freedom alleged in 1940 was under "outright communist control" and Provisional secretary of the Board of Directors for the Jefferson School of Social Science, associated with the Communist Party.
 
He wrote a memo cautioning Owen Lattimore, editor of the IPR quarterly Pacific Affairs, with regard to a certain article, "the analysis is a straight Marxist one and should not be altered." He donated money and time to Communist causes in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, and during the war generously donated money to organizations close to the Soviet Union.
 
In his autobiography, Field confesses that during this period he "uncritically accepted" Soviet accounts of their political purges and was "taken in." "Stalin was infallible," he recalled. "My Communist surroundings told me so. So was [American Communist Party Secretary Earl] Browder, although on a lower level of sanctity, and so were the other CP [Communist Party] leaders." At a time when other erstwhile loyal friends of the Soviet Union were becoming disillusioned by Stalin's Great Purge, Field defended the bloody Moscow show trials, saying, "because Comrade Stalin says so, we have to believe the trials are just."
 
Since the IPR aimed to be non-partisan, and in theory still attempted to include even the Japanese point of view, he collaborated with his friend Philip Jaffe to set up the journal Amerasia in 1937 as a vehicle for criticism of Japanese attacks in China. Jaffe would later plead guilty to "conspiracy to embezzle, steal and purloin" government property after OSS and FBI investigators found hundreds of government documents labeled "secret," "top secret," or "confidential" in his and Field's offices.
 

In 1941 Field left his position at the IPR, but served as a Trustee until 1947. He attended the 1945 United Nations founding conference in San Francisco as an IPR representative, and also as a writer for the Daily Worker.
 
American Peace Mobilization
In 1940 Field had become executive secretary of the American Peace Mobilization (APM), a position for which he had been recruited by Earl Browder himself. “Some time before the APM was formally organized,” wrote Field, “Earl Browder asked me if I would accept the executive secretaryship if it were offered me.” At APM, Field emerged as a committed pacifist, demanding that the United States stay out of the war in Europe -- at least while the Hitler-Stalin pact lasted. His reasoning, he explained in his autobiography, was that "the European war in those early stages was one between rival imperialists, the British Empire and the Nazi Reich." By summer of the following year, however, Field came to a complete turnaround: on June 20, 1941, in his capacity as executive secretary, he suddenly called off the organization's “peace picketing” of the White House reversing himself to demand immediate U.S. war on Germany.  Just two days later, Nazi Germany would launch its surprise invasion of the Soviet Union.
 
According to the McCarran Committee's IPR Report, Lattimore, along with President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Administrative Assistant Lauchlin Currie (identified in the Venona decrypts as the Soviets' White House source code-named "Page"), tried in 1942 to get Field a commission in military intelligence, but, unlike Duncan Lee (Venona code name "Koch"), Maurice Halperin ("Hare"), Julius Joseph ("Cautious"), Carl Marzani, Franz Leopold Neumann ("Ruff"), Helen Tenney ("Muse"), and Donald Wheeler ("Izra") — all of whom got into the OSS — Field was rejected as a security risk.
 
In 1944, dissident IPR member Alfred Kohlberg submitted to IPR Secretary General Edward C. Carter an 88-page analysis alleging that the Institute had been infiltrated by pro-Communist elements. Among other things, Kohlberg alleged that Field was a member of the National Committee of the Communist Party.
 
In 1945, former Soviet spy Elizabeth Bentley told FBI investigators that she had attended a conference in Field's home earlier that year. Also present, she alleged, were Browder, John Hazard Reynolds, head of the United States Service and Shipping Corporation (a Comintern front organization for Soviet espionage activities) and "Ray" Elson (Identified in the "Gorsky memo" under the cover name "Irma")
 
On April 22, 1948, Louis Budenz, former managing editor of the Daily Worker, advised FBI investigators, "Field is a Communist Party member."  In 1949, Field identified himself in Political Affairs as an "American Communist."
 
Civil Rights Activities
Field took an active role in the operation of the Civil Rights Congress, a leftist group of civil rights advocates formed from the merger of the International Labor Defense (ILD), the National Negro Congress, and the National Federation for Constitutional Liberties in Detroit in 1946. The organization concentrated on legal action and political protest – notably publicizing the 1955 lynching of 14-year-old boy Emmett Till and publishing the 1951 document We Charge Genocide, as well as helping to pioneer many of the tactics that would be employed by later civil rights workers. Field simultaneously acted as both secretary and trustee of the Civil Rights Congress bail fund.
 
Tydings Committee
In 1950, Budenz testified before the Tydings Committee to personal knowledge that Field was a Soviet espionage agent. Questioned about this, Field refused to answer on grounds of potential self-incrimination.  The following year, former Soviet spy Whittaker Chambers testified before the McCarran Committee that NKVD "handler" J. Peters told him in 1937 that Field was a member of the Communist underground. Herbert Romerstein, former head of the office to Counter Soviet Disinformation at the United States Information Agency, and the late Eric Breindel placed Field in the GRU apparat, alleging that he "was an agent of Soviet military intelligence."
 
Yet, writers Kai Bird and S. Chervonnaya, examining the archives in an article of The American Scholar, disagree: "Documents show that he was in contact with various Soviet representatives in the United States beginning in early 1935. Some of these interactions may be described as 'active measures' on behalf of the Soviet Union. Still, what we know does not prove that Field was a full-blown Soviet agent**"
 
As secretary of the Civil Rights Congress bail fund, Field refused to reveal who had put up bond for eight Communist Party officials who had jumped bail and disappeared after being convicted by the Truman administration Department of Justice for violations of the Smith Act. Convicted of contempt of court since he would not provide the names of any of his Communist friends, Field served two months of a 90-day sentence in federal prison at Ashland, Kentucky in 1951.
___________
**It's more likely, then, that Field was a double agent -- a U.S. intelligence agent who had been sent to infiltrate and disrupt the Communist Party.  As much as the reverse, such things did occur, although we seldom hear of it and historians have been remarkably slow in revealing which "Communists" were American patriots in disguise -- probably because a number of them remained active in the CIA during the time of the Kennedy Assassination ... One example that comes to mind is the first husband of Ruth Forbes Paine ("sponsor" of Lee Harvey Oswald and his wife Marina), George Lyman Paine Jr.  George seems to have been not a dedicated Marxist conspirator but an infiltrator working for U.S. intelligence, just like his "Trotskyite" partner James Burnham***.   Allen Dulles' mistress Mary Bancroft --no fool, she-- spoke highly of Ruth's "radical"  husband and Dulles himself, when visiting Ruth Forbes Paine in the '30s, was always well-disposed toward him. 
"In the 1930s, two anti-Communist guerrillas, James Burnham and George Lyman Paine, went undercover as Communists, infiltrated the leadership of the American Trotskyist movement -- the world's largest Trotskyist organization -- and helped tear it apart.  In 1940, their mission ended with the assassination of Leon Trotsky in Mexico City. James Burnham went on to teach the newly formed CIA about covert operations. He also went on to teach at Yale and recruit CIA agents from among his students.  In 1950, Burnham recruited a Yale student, William F. Buckley, Jr., and introduced him to CIA agent E. Howard Hunt. Hunt was a favorite of CIA Director Allen Dulles." http://www.acorn.net/jfkplace/09/fp.back_issues/17th_Issue/rmblr_frwrd.html

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Burnham
***In 1933, along with Sidney Hook, Burnham helped to organize the American Workers Party, which in 1934 merged with the Communist League of America to form the U.S. Workers Party. In 1935 he allied with the Trotskyist wing of that party and favored fusion with the Socialist Party of America. During this period, he became a friend to Leon Trotsky. ... In 1937 the Trotskyists were expelled from the Socialist Party, an action which led to the formation of the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) at the end of the year. Inside the SWP, Burnham allied with Max Shachtman in a faction fight over the position defending the Soviet Union as a degenerated workers state against the incursions of imperialism.  After witnessing the Nazi-Soviet pact of 1939, Shachtman & Burnham contended that the USSR was an imperialistic form of [state capitalism], thus unworthy of support from the socialist movement. ... During World War II, Burnham joined the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), a forerunner of the CIA.  George F. Kennan recommended Burnham for the "Political and Psychological Warfare" division of the <Dulles-controlled> Office of Policy Coordination (OPC), a semi-autonomous part of the agency.  After the war, during the period which came to be known as the "Cold War," he called for an aggressive strategy to undermine the Soviet Union's power. In 1955, he helped William F. Buckley found National Review magazine, which from the start took positions in foreign policy consistent with Burnham's own. His approach to foreign policy has caused some to regard him as the first "neoconservative."

During the 1950s, Shachtman's supporters in the United Auto Workers abandoned their opposition to President Walter Reuther and began to take staff positions at UAW headquarters. As early as 1949 they supported the purge of Communist-linked unions from the CIO.  They gave up their identification with the Fourth International after a failed attempt in 1947-48 to reunify with the SWP, and aligned with the left wings of the British Labour Party and other European social democratic parties. Shachtman moved from Leninism to a Marxist version of democratic socialism.

Shachtman helped pressure the SP to work with the Democratic Party in order to push the Democrats to the left.  With the eager participation of the Shachtmanites, the SP took an active role in the early events of the New Left and the civil rights movement. Shachtman developed close and enduring ties to African-American pacifist and civil rights leader Bayard Rustin. By contrast, Shachtman's initial ties to the young leaders of the [more radical] Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) frayed after the 1964 Democratic Convention ... During this time, Shachtman started the research for a major book on the Communist International (Comintern), later collected in a working paper prepared for a 1964 conference of the Hoover Institute at Stanford University. ... In the 1960s Shachtman refused to condemn the Bay of Pigs Invasion and opposed unilateral US withdrawal from the Vietnam War.

----------------
Pp. 938-39 in Carroll Quigley's "Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time," Macmillan, 1966:

"More than fifty years ago the Morgan firm decided to infiltrate the Left-wing political movements in the United States. This was relatively easy to do, since these groups were starved for funds and eager for a voice to reach the people. Wall Street supplied both. The purpose was not to destroy, dominate, or take over but was threefold: (1) to keep informed about the thinking of Left-wing or liberal groups; (2) to provide them with a mouthpiece so that they could "blow off steam," and (3) to have a final veto on their publicity and possibly on their actions, if they ever went "radical." There was nothing really new about this decision, since other financiers had talked about it and even attempted it earlier. What made it decisively important this time was the combination of its adoption by the dominant Wall Street financier, at a time when tax policy was driving all financiers to seek tax-exempt refuges for their fortunes, and at a time when the ultimate in Left-wing radicalism was about to appear under the banner of the Third International.

"The best example of this alliance of Wall Street and Left-wing publication was The New Republic, a magazine founded by Willard Straight, using Payne Whitney money, in 1914.  Straight, a Morgan partner, married Dorothy Payne Whitney, the sister and co-heiress of Oliver Payne, of the Standard Oil trust. ...

"The New Republic was founded by Willard and Dorothy Straight, using her money, in 1914, and continued to be supported by her financial contributions until March 23, 1953. The original purpose for establishing the paper was to provide an outlet for the progressive Left and to guide it quietly in an Anglophile direction. This latter task was entrusted to a young man, only four years out of Harvard, but already a member of the mysterious Round Table group, which played a major role in directing England's foreign policy since its formal establishment in 1909. This new recruit, Walter Lippmann, has since 1914 been America's spokesman for [the foreign policy of] the Establishments on both sides of the Atlantic. [As a] link between Wall Street and the [British] Round Table Group, Lippmann was given the opportunity in 1918, while still in his twenties, to be the official interpreter of the meaning of Woodrow Wilson's Fourteen Points to the British government."

JESSUP REPLIES TO CHARGE

Tonight, Ambassador at Large Philip C. Jessup, who had been accused by Senator McCarthy of "accepting" contributions for the American Council of Institute of Pacific Relations from Frederick Vanderbilt Field, denounced this as a false "insinuation" that the council was "being paid to peddle the Communist Party line."

Mr. Jessup declared in the first place that he was not, as alleged by Mr. McCarthy, largely in control of the organization. At the time in question, 1942 and 1943, the Ambassador added, its head was Dr. Robert Gordon Sproul, president of the University of California, and sponsors for a drive for funds included  Henry Luce, the magazine publisher, and Juan Trippe of Pan-American Airways.

Mr. Field's contributions of $3,500, Mr. Jessup said, were part of $200,000 taken up, much of it from the Rockefeller Foundation, the Carnegie Corp., and large industrial concerns.

Of Messrs. Luce and Trippe, Ambassador Jessup observed :

"Surely these gentlemen would never have accepted payments from Mr. Field or anyone else for 'selling the Communist Party line.' Neither would I if I had been in control."

Senator McCarthy had called Mr. Field a known Communist.

Text of Lattimore's Memorandum on United States Far Eastern Policy

Mr. Lattimore, head of the Walter Hines Page School of International Relations at Johns Hopkins

Washington, April 3 (AP). — Following is the text of Owen Lattimore's memorandum on United States policy in the Far East, drafted for a State Department advisory committee last August and made public today by Mr. Lattimore :

1. The type of policy represented by support for Chiang Kai-shek does more harm than good to the interests of the United States, and no modification of this policy seems promising

2. China cannot be economically coerced by such measures as cutting off trade.
Nothing could be more dangerous for the American interest than to underestimate the ability of the Chinese Communists to achieve the minimum level of economic stability that will make their regime politically secure.

3. It is not possible to make Japan a satisfactory instrument of American policy.

4. South Korea is more of a liability than an asset to the interests and policy of the United States.

Mr. Morris. Mr. Chairman, may I point out at this time that Mr.  Ozaki was in 1936 the Japanese council delegate to the IPR conference  at Yosemite?

General Willoughby. Yes. That makes Ozaki doubly interesting  to this committee specializing in the quality of the membership of the  Institute of Pacific Relations. Ozaki is a type member in good standing of the Institute of Pacific Relations in his days.

See:
http://books.google.com/books?id=G3fsz3J6FzEC&pg=PA93&lpg=PA93&dq=yosemite+Ozaki+Hotsumi&source=bl&ots=qUQCD94eaq&sig=O_uFqcCyQmpAcjv9psM33r51DkI&hl=en&ei=dRUHS_-GEYjOsQPcrozBCQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CAsQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=yosemite%20Ozaki%20Hotsumi&f=false

In order to once more emphasize the character of Sorge's organization — apparatus is the pseudo or Russian term for it — I would like to quote from his diary, duly authenticated reference in the hands of
the counsel. This is Sorge speaking :

As head of the Japan spy ring, I was directly affiliated with the central committee of the U. S. S. R. Communist Party. I was also under the fourth bureau (intelligence) of the Red army with respect to the technical aspects of my work and a few subject matter in'oblems.
As I see it —

this is Sorge speaking —

my espionage group should be considered a special arm of the central committee of the U. S. S. R. Communist Party. That was its essential characteristic.

Another distinguishing feature was its technical and organization connection with the fourth bureau (intelligence) of the Red army. The espionage group which I operated in Japan, all of its members have frankly confessed that they were working to advance the cause of commiunism and not for money or  personal gain.

Mr. Morris. General, approximately how many members were there in that ring ?

General Willoughby. Fifteen to twenty. While the personnel of this ring varied from time to time, this skillful bank of spies — agents, if you wish — worked for nine productive years before their discovery. The famous Canadian spy case was one of the best examples of this type of espionage. I believe, however, that the Sorge efforts in Tokyo compare most favorably with this famous case.

Senator Ferguson. How many nationalities were in this ring?

Sorge was a German ?

General Willoughby. Yes.

Senator Ferguson. Guenther Stein was British?

Agnes Smedley, a triple agent who worked for the Soviets, the Chinese Communists, and the Indian nationalists, was one of the most prolific female spies of the 20th century. Unlike most agents of the day, who were reasonably erudite, Smedley lacked a formal education and came from a poor, undistinguished family.

At New York University circa 1912, Smedley befriended a group of students from India who were agitators in their country's nationalist movement. She soon joined the Friends of Freedom for India, a secretive organization closely monitored by the U.S. government.

In 1918, while she was a student at the University of California, Smedley was arrested in the company of Salindranath Ghose, a prominent Indian nationalist, and charged with aiding and abetting espionage

Soon after the indictment Smedley left the U.S. for Berlin. She became involved with the Communist faction of the Indian nationalist movement in Germany and entered into a common-law marriage with Virendranath Chattoopadhyaya, a Communist Indian nationalist leader.

In 1928, Smedley left for Shanghai, China by way of Moscow. Agents there assigned her to keep tabs on the British-trained and British-directed police in Shanghai and to support the Communist cause there.

Smedley began a professional and romantic relationship with Richard Sorge, a Russian-born spy for the Soviets based in Shanghai.

During World War II Smedley lived intermittently in the U.S. and served as an advisor to the U.S. general Joseph Stilwell, who was the military advisor to Chiang Kai-shek, the leader of non-Communist China.

Smedley used her position to recommend that Stilwell secretly send a limited amount of U.S. military supplies to the Chinese Communists in the event that they could help the U.S. against a potential Japanese attack. Stilwell agreed to Smedley's request.

By 1950, rumors began to circle among government officials about Smedley's identity as a Soviet agent. The FBI assigned a team of agents to monitor her activities. Feeling pressured, Smedley left for England. The House Un-American Activities Committee subpoenaed her shortly after she left. Smedley died in England less than three years later, never having appeared before the committee.

Her ashes were spread in a cemetery for revolutionaries in the Chinese capital.

The Wuhan Gang, including Joseph Stilwell, Agnes Smedley, Evans Carlson, Frank Dorn, Jack Belden, S.T. Steele, John Davies, David Barrett and more, were the core of the Americans who were to influence the American decision-making on behalf of the Chinese communists. It was not something that could be easily explained by Hurley's accusation in late 1945 that American government had been hijacked by i) imperialists and ii) communists. At play was not a single-thread Russian or Comintern conspiracy against the Republic of China but an additional channel that was delicately knit by the sohphiscated Chinese communist saboteurs to employ the above-mentioned Americans for their cause"

 Gao Hua classified CCP's espionage activities into three lines: Kang Sheng's CCP Central Social Department, Wu Kejian's CCP Southern Bureau behind-enemy-line-committee (i.e., under Zhou Enlai/Li Kenong control), and Pan Hannian's Southern China Bureau (in charge of Shanghai-HK nexus). Yu Maochun, in "OSS In China", had presented the line of dual status agents under the control of both Chinese communists and Comintern.

Communist Spies Sent to Japan and China

In Asia, Japan was the only country which turned strongly against the communists, while the USA was very slow to realize the danger of communism. And for the Soviet Union, Japan was the biggest impediment to communize Asia. That was why the Soviet Union tried to use the American armed forces to destroy Japan. For that purpose, the Soviet Union sent many secret agents of the Communist International to China, the USA and Japan.
  
Some of their agents were sent to Japan, but the Japanese police strictly discovered and arrested them. It is famous in Japan that a German communist, Richard Sorge, entered Japan and succeeded in sending some secret documents on important Japanese policies to the Soviet Union. The information he sent later contributed to the victory of the Soviet Union against Germany and Japan. Due to the information provided by Sorge, the Soviet Union was able to delay invading Japan until the USA defeated Japan in 1945. Sorge himself was arrested as a spy suspect just before the Pacific War and later executed.
 
The Communist International also sent many agents to China to help Chinese communists and make China a communist country. The Soviet agents worked with the Chinese communist leader Mao Zedong in every way, and also around Chiang Kai-shek were many communist agents. Chiang himself was not a communist but was shrewdly managed by the communists.
 
For the communists, the biggest desire was to drag the USA into the war against Japan, for Japan was the biggest impediment to communizing China, and the only country with the power to destroy Japan was the USA. If they fought against each other, there would be a big opportunity of communizing China. In fact, on July 19, 1935, American ambassador to the Soviet Union, W. Bullitt, informed his country that it was the biggest desire for the Soviet Union to drag the USA into a war against Japan. In order to realize this, the communists used every method to make the USA look upon Japan as the enemy.
...

Chiang Kai-shek was caught by communists during a careless moment in Xi'an in 1936, and was taken to Mao Zedong, who really wanted to kill him. But before killing Chiang, Mao asked Moscow what to do. The answer was, "Do not kill him. Force him to fight against Japan." Mao followed this order and said to Chiang, "I will save your life if you fight against the Japanese military forces!" Chiang accepted it and then on, he was always being watched by the communists who had infiltrated his troops.

This photo was taken in 1945. Chiang's change  of mind drove Japan to the war.

By Chiang's change of mind, Japan was dragged into the Chinese civil war, for Chiang's soldiers began attacking the Japanese people to provoke them to war. .

Yes it is interesting that the Vanderbilts were also connected to the IPR along with the Rockefellers,,, but of course that goes back to the connections to the China trade and S&B. It shows that not only were they manipulating Germany for the rise of Hitler, and their connections/support to the Stalinist Soviets , but also China/Japan pre WWII . They needed big wars to consolidate power and create social change.

As to why Andy C Vanderbilt is coming out , I suspect he is getting ready to leave CNN, and go on to be an independent  journalist or get another TV show or just hang out in his Greenich Village Fire House or one of the many other "family" places he can stay....



Cooper purchased this Greenwich Village fire house in 2010 and is finally moving in after lengthy renovations

Marilyn Monroe Mexico 1962

Buried in a Green Pucci Dress:  Marilyn is said to have been buried in the green Pucci dress she wore while in Mexico in February, 1962, ... "Perhaps Mrs. Murray would show us her favorite dress," Mrs. Melson said.  Eunice stepped forward and took the pale green Pucci from the rack.  She could still see Marilyn radiant in the dress at the press conference in Mexico City.  It was the dress about which Marilyn had quipped to reporters, "You should see it on a hanger."   .


Frederick Vanderbilt Field

With his wife, a Mexican, Nieves Orozco (former model and ex-mistress of the painter Diego Riviera), they were part of the picturesque colony "Zona Rosa" where expatriates lived in exile (Dalton Trumbo, Bibberman Herbert, George Pepper, John Howard Lawson, Albert Matz).

Well-known communist, he fled the U.S. to live in peace. He collected pre-Columbian objects and led the American Russian Institute. Accompanied by his wife, he served in 1962 as a guide to Marilyn Monroe during her trip to Mexico to buy furniture for her house. They visited Cuernavaca, Toluca, Taxco, Acapulco. Marilyn Monroe and Fields found the warm, attractive, bright and intelligent, curious things, people and ideas, and also incredibly complicated. The group was followed closely by the FBI, apparently interested in the relationship with the Communist, Marilyn the most fortunate of the United States, in voluntary exile in Mexico. The FBI knew then that he was part of the Comintern.


http://tangibleinfo.blogspot.com/2007/07/fbicia-murdered-marilyn-monroe.html
July 1962 was a tense time for the United States and the entire world, a period of perilous confrontation between the West and Communist nations. The Soviet Union declared that it would defend China against any attacker. Americans had begun to die in Vietnam. And in tests that month, the U.S. detonated a series of advanced nuclear bombs.

 On July 26 an official of the FBI's Domestic Intelligence Division -- the counterespionage department -- filed a cryptic note at headquarters in Washington based on reports from agents in Mexico City: "Info received from informants [names deleted] advised Marilyn Monroe attended a luncheon at the residence of Peter Lawford with President Kennedy. Informants characterized Monroe's views as positively and concisely leftist."

This strange document and others filed under Marilyn Monroe -- Security Matter -- C (the "C" stood for Communist) were to be withheld by the U.S. government for more than 40 years. Behind them lies a disquieting story that began five months earlier in an exotic foreign city.

In February, lounging in a Mexico City hotel suite, the world's most famous movie star had sipped champagne with a scion of one of America's most illustrious families. Marilyn Monroe was getting acquainted with Frederick Vanderbilt Field, great-great-grandson of the railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt. Monroe had flown south to buy paintings and furniture for her Mexican-style house in California, and Field, who had lived in Mexico for years, was on hand to show her around. An ordinary meeting of the rich and famous? Not so, we now know, as far as the FBI was concerned.

Monroe, as the Bureau already knew, had for some time been having a dalliance with President John F. Kennedy. Three weeks earlier, at a dinner party in Los Angeles, she had also had a first tête-à-tête with his brother Robert, the Attorney General. It was a scenario filled with potential risk, for the woman involved with two of the nation's leaders was drinking too much, abusing prescription drugs and seeing a psychiatrist almost daily.

Her friend Field, meanwhile, was no ordinary plutocrat. He was an unrepentant supporter of communism and was being watched constantly by U.S. agents. Monroe's association with Field, coupled with her involvement with the Kennedys, made her a security risk.

The FBI's July 26 document, made available this year, was written 10 days before Monroe's death.

Frederick Vanderbilt Field

Frederick Vanderbilt Field (April 13, 1905 – February 1, 2000) was an American leftist political activist and a great-great-grandson of railroad tycoon Cornelius "Commodore" Vanderbilt, disinherited by his wealthy relatives for his radical political views. Field became a specialist on Asia and was a prime staff member and supporter of the Institute of Pacific Relations. He also supported so many openly Communist organizations that he was accused of being a member of the Communist Party,[1] and was a top target of the American government during the peak of 1950s McCarthyism. Field denied ever having been a party member, but admitted in his memoirs that "I suppose I was what the Party called a 'member at large.
...
Matriculating in 1927, Field spent a year at the London School of Economics, where he was exposed to the ideas of Harold Laski, the Fabian socialist political theorist, economist, and writer

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Russian_Institute
The American Russian Institute for Cultural Relations with the Soviet Union, previously known as the American Society for Cultural Relations with the Soviet Union, was identified by Attorney General of the United States Thomas C. Clark as a Communist front group in 1947, and was so listed on the Attorney General's List of Subversive Organizations for 1948,[1] in accordance with President Truman's Executive Order 9835. Among the members of the Executive Committee of the American Russian Institute was Edward C. Carter, chairman of Russian War Relief and the National Committee for Medical Aid to the Soviet Union, and general secretary of the Institute of Pacific Relations.[2]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Clark_Carter
Edward Clark Carter (June 9, 1878 – November 9, 1954) worked with the International Y.M.C.A. in India and in France, during World War I, from 1902 to 1918, but was best known for his work with the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR), of which he was secretary from 1926 to 1933, secretary general from 1933 to 1946 and executive vice-chairman from 1946 to 1948

Morton owned property in Newport, Rhode Island and lived on tony Bellevue Avenue, in the mansion called "Fairlawn," a building currently owned by Salve Regina University, housing the Pell Center of International Relations and Public Policy. He left a nearby property to the city of Newport for use as a park
...
In retirement, Morton served as President of the Metropolitan Club at One East Sixtieth Street, New York, between 1900 and 1911. He was preceded in that office by J. Pierpont Morgan; and succeeded by Frank Knight Sturgis

An Italian Renaissance-style palazzo structure at the northeast corner of 81st Street, 998 Fifth Avenue was designed by McKim, Mead & White and opened as a rental in 1912; its residents have included Murray Guggenheim, former U.S. Vice President Levi P. Morton and a granddaughter of Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, as well as Sylvia Green Wilks, the daughter of Hettie Green and the widow of Matthew Astor Wilks. The building boasts jewelry safes built into the walls of each apartment, refrigerated wine cellars, 10 1/2-foot-high ceilings and a lobby lined in Italian marble.

...
Levi P. Morton, the international banker who bought the great Rhinecliff estate of Ellerslie in 1887 shortly before becoming vice-president of the United States, was a self-made multi-millionaire.
...
Fortune struck, as it would again and again.
...

Still Beebe kept an eye on him and in 1849, asked him to join his firm in Boston. Morton sold his store for a handsome profit of between $12,000 and $13,000 and rushed off to Boston, then the Mecca for all ambitious New Englanders.

Morton's career continued its dizzying upward spiral. Beebe took him abroad to investigate the European market, then, in 1851, made him a junior partner at the same time as Junius Spencer Morgan, the father of J.P. Morgan, joined the firm as a senior partner. The Morgans' friendship would be of great use to Morton.
...

For the next five years Morton dealt successfully in southern cotton, though when the Civil War came and his company went bankrupt, Morton was a staunch supporter of Abraham Lincoln. Morton, making a radical career change, went into international banking. Nevertheless, like every business enterprise Morton turned his hand to, it was immediately successful. Junius Morgan, who had set up a bank in London, sent him clients, and Morton had such a strong reputation for fair dealing that others flocked to him.
...

Probably the most important work he accomplished through this bank was promoting the peaceful arbitration of United States' claims against the British for breaking their neutrality during the Civil War. (The warships the U.K. sent to the Confederacy destroyed some 100,000 tons of northern cargoes.) The United States received a $15 million award, of which Morton got a percentage.

http://www.abouttown.us/dutchess/articles/spring05/levimorton.shtml
When we left Levi P. Morton in About Town's last issue, he had risen from a general store clerk in New Hampshire to become a world class financier, a Congressman from New York City's silk-stocking district, the United States Minister to France and in the 1888 election had just won the electoral college—but not the popular—vote for Vice President of the United States on the Republican ticket with Benjamin Harrison. He had sired five daughters and, having sold his summer place in Newport, bought Ellerslie, a great, rundown gentleman's farm in Rhinecliff-on-Hudson. Here begins the last third of his life, during which he made his principal residence in the hamlet.

In 1912, the Guaranty Trust expanded into a new building at Broadway and Liberty Street. The $150,000 vault in the basement and sub-basement was 26 by 36 feet and 23 feet high, the second largest in the world after the Carnegie Trust Company's vault.

It was guarded with 27,000 burglar alarm wires, and was 28 inches thick, armored on the outside with 700 steel railway rails on end, filled with concrete. The door was 36 inches thick and weighed 40 tons, and required 22 horses to transport it. Some paving stones on South Street reportedly sank several inches from its weight. (Forty-Ton Door For Vault.

OLIGARCHS IN EVERY GREAT BUSINESS
...
These are our business rulers, the men whom we have by our proxies, as stockholders, elected as the trustees of our properties. They have acquired practically an oligarchical power. Possibly there are several names on this roll that a more discriminating judgment would reject. Probably there are ten or fifteen more names which should be included. At least fifty of the names cannot be questioned, and of the list as a whole, it may be said that it is fairly representative of the corporation power of the United States.
...

John Moody estimates that the trust power of the United States is $20,379,000,000. These men control that power and more. They are also the dominant influence in the banks and trust companies having deposits of $10,000,000,000 and a capital investment of $2,750,000,000. An analysis of their power will show that fully one hundred of the greatest railroad, industrial and banking corporations, with a capitalization equal to more than one-fifth of the nation's wealth, are controlled by them.  


[ The Vanderbilt Fortune in 1921 - ]

Dynastic America, and those who own it - 1921 - Klein, Henry H  

VANDERBILT

William K. Vanderbilt died in 1920, leaving an estate estimated at $100,000,000 to his children, William K., Jr., Harold and Consuelo (Duchess of Marlborough), each of whom had a separate fortune. No appraisal of the estate has yet been made. Deceased was one of four sons of William H. Vanderbilt, who died in 1899, leaving about $200,000,000. One of the sons, Cornelius, died in 1899, leaving $80,000,000; another son, George W., died in 1914, leaving $50,000,000. Frederick W. is the only surviving son.

Deceased held the largest share of Vanderbilt family stock in the New York Central Railroad, 139,000 shares standing in his name.

He was director in many railroads in which the Vanderbilt family is the largest or among the largest security holders, including the West Shore, Canada Southern, Chicago and Northwestern, Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha; Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis; Lake Erie and Western; Michigan Central; New York & Harlem; New York State Realty and Terminal Co. and Pittsburg & Lake Erie.

William K., Jr., is his father's successor in these properties and he is director in about 90 corporations, most of
them railroads.
Harold is director in about half that number. Cornelius Vanderbilt, brother of the late William K., left the largest share of his fortune to his son Alfred G. He cut off his oldest son Cornelius with one million dollars, because he was displeased by his marriage, and he gave his youngest son, Reginald, and two daughters, Gladys and Gertrude, $7,000,000 each. Gladys is the Countess Szechenyi and Gertrude is Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney. Alfred made up the difference of seven million dollars to his brother Cornelius out of his inheritance.

Alfred Vanderbilt was drowned on the Lusitania in 1915. His estate was appraised at $35,000,000. Five million dollars went to his son William H., by his first wife, who was Elsie French; $8,000,000 to his widow (formerly Mrs. Margaret Emerson McKim) ; the balance to his two sons by his second wife, Alfred G., Jr., and George, who were two and a half years and seven months old, respectively.
His first wife received $10,000,000 in settlement at the time she was divorced, and the widow received $3,000,000 and a life interest in $5,000,000.

Among Mr. Vanderbilt's holdings were 32,300 shares Pittsburg & Lake Erie, valued at $5,650,250; 14,400 shares New York Central valued at $1,200,000; 4,200 pref. and 3,600 com. Chicago & Northwestern, valued at $1,150,000; 10,230 Pullman Company, valued at $1,750,000; 1,800 Delaware & Hudson, $263,700; 5,330 Beech Creek Railroad, $234,520; 1,400 Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, $126,000; 2,500 Lincoln Safe Deposit Company, $510,000; 1,000 Chemical National Bank, $404,000 and 700 National City Bank, $266,000. His largest bond holding was $1,875,000 New York Central 3J4 per cent bonds.

George W. Vanderbilt left his fortune to his widow Edith and his daughter Cornelia, who was 13 years old. He was a resident of Biltmore, N. C., where he developed a beautiful estate. Frederick W., the only surviving son of William H., is director in many Vanderbilt properties. Reginald and Cornelius, sons of Cornelius, who died in 1899, are directors in the same and other corporations.

A large share of the present Cornelius's fortune is invested in other than so-called Vanderbilt properties.

The total wealth of the descendants of William H. Vanderbilt is estimated to exceed $500,000,000.

The Vanderbilts are married into other, rich families, including the Whitneys, Fair, Shepard
Twombly, Sloane, Wilson, Field, Burden, Webb, Schieffelin and Pulitzer, the aggregate wealth of all of them exceeding One Billion Dollars
.

In todays Dollars, it is impossible to say what the Vanderbilt family wealth would be, but it could easily be in the hundred of billions, possibly trillions
since they own the federal reserve that prints the fiat money.

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

David Letterman said Monday that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is promising conservatives that if he's elected, "he will put Anderson Cooper back in the closet."
 
Such was said during the obligatory Romney-bashing portion of Letterman's Late Show monologue on CBS (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary, file photo):

As Late Show watchers know all too well, somewhere in Letterman's monologue will be attacks on the former Massachusetts governor.
 
"Mitt Romney vacationing in Lake Winnipesaukee," teased the host. "His money is vacationing in the Cayman Islands."

This from a guy whose net worth is almost twice as much as Romney's. But that doesn't stop him from making rich jokes about anybody.
 
Seconds later, it got worse.
 
"Mitt is now promising conservatives," Letterman said, "that if he is elected – because conservatives don’t think Mitt’s conservative enough – he’s promising conservatives if Mitt is elected, he will put Anderson Cooper back in the closet."
 
Conservative homophobe jokes. They never get old with liberal media members

 Hi T.
 One golden boy slambing the other. Its all to keep the masses in the dark, as if Andy gives a shiite what  Letterman does to make big bucks. Their actors racking in fortunes, Andy's allegience was not home grown American.
 
Poetic, honest, bottom line-comedians, a dying breed,           George Denis Patrick Carlin  
  
 Andy completed his LIL mission, as has been said, he is CIA + a face, + an actor reading a script,  worth many a million $$.
                                    He   may not sit at the elites table but he is in the same neighborhood.

Anderson Cooper reports on the letter 'G'.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2254054/Marilyn-Monroe-Productions-filled-communists-The-FBI-file-shows-agency-tracked-actress-investigated-communist-ties-1950s.html
...
The redacted document reveals that on July 11, 1956, the agency got a tip that an anonymous male caller phoned the Daily News to report that the actress's company, Marilyn Monroe Productions, was 'filled with communists' and that money from the company was being used to finance communist activities.
 
The caller said Miller's marriage to Monroe during a Jewish ceremony less than a months earlier was a 'coverup.'

...

There have been two major government investigations into Monroe's demise - the original inquiry immediately after her death and another effort by the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office in 1982. The second inquiry, released in December 1982, reviewed all files available investigative reports, including files compiled by the FBI on her death. The records, the DA's office noted, were 'heavily censored.'
 
That mention intrigued the man who performed Monroe's autopsy, Dr. Thomas Noguchi. While the DA investigation concluded he conducted a thorough autopsy, Noguchi has conceded that no one will likely ever know all the details of Monroe's death. The FBI files and confidential interviews conducted with the actress' friends that have never been made public might help, he wrote in his 1983 memoir 'Coroner.'
 
'On the basis of my own involvement in the case, beginning with the autopsy, I would call Monroe's suicide "very probable,"' Noguchi wrote. 'But I also believe that until the complete FBI files are made public and the notes and interviews of the suicide panel released, controversy will continue to swirl around her death.'

The files had previously been heavily redacted, but more details are now public in a version of the file recently obtained by The Associated Press through the Freedom of Information Act. The updated files reveal that some in Monroe’s inner circle were concerned about her association with Frederick Vanderbilt Field, who was disinherited from his wealthy family over his leftist views.

Arthur Miller Admits Helping Communist-Front Groups in '40's
By ALLEN DRURY

WASHINGTON, June 21 - Arthur Miller, playwright, disclosed today a past filled with Communist-front associations and a future filled with Marilyn Monroe. He said he would marry the film star before July 13.

 The 40-year-old dramatist, a Pulitzer Prize winner, told the House Committee on Un-American Activities that he had signed many appeals and protests issued by Red front groups in the last decade. But he denied that he ever had been "under Communist discipline." He risked a possible contempt citation by refusing to give the committee names of those he had seen at Communist-run meetings.

 Mr. Miller revealed his plans to marry Miss Monroe during a recess in the committee hearing. He said they would be wed before she left for England on July 13 to make a film with Sir Laurence Olivier.

That Anderson Cooper is "newly-admitting" to being gay is so very weird.. He was featured in Vanity Fair many years ago (in one of the multi-page spreads that they do) where he talked about it.

Every few years they "release" another document about Marilyn except the one that says who murdered her.
Also now more people know that Cooper is gay than know he's a Vanderbilt!

Kathy Griffin Kisses Anderson Cooper's Crotch On National Television
By Noel Sheppard | January 01, 2013 | 09:07

On Monday night's program, after first telling co-host Anderson Cooper "I'm going to tickle your sack," she shortly after midnight actually kissed his crotch ...

Is this what the self-described "most trusted name in news" considers acceptable fare?
 
Consider that during the 2009 show, Griffin dropped an F-bomb. The year before she directed a vulgar oral sex reference to a heckler. Last year she stripped down to her underwear. Yet CNN keeps inviting her back.
Boggles the mind, doesn't it?
