Casey Peters compares the New Alliance Party’s similarities, U.S. Intelligence links and its deceptive, destructive tactics to those of the Rev. Jim Jones People’s Temple in San Francisco.
Ramsey Clark, Dick Becker, Gloria La Riva and Lyndon LaRouche have a lot of explaining to do.
Recruited most followers from poor and poorly educated communities of color.
the true nature of his organization was revealed to the public, he killed
him self (He was shot dead by his CIA/handlers/elite White Guard after
ordering the others, including Congressman Leo Ryan, three press people
and his entourage to be killed at the Guyana jungle airport during Ryan’s
Congressional investigation) and 913 of his followers…..
Ryan’s surviving staff, who included current California Assemblywoman
Jackie Spear soon after, held a press conference in San Francisco; with
documents in hand, revealed the Jim Jones/Jonestown cult and massacre
was part of a big CIA MKUltra mind-control program.
is an excerpt from Casey Peters report:
NAP: March To Oblivion: The People’s Temple and the Newman Compliance
Party; A Provocative Comparison
Clark/ANSWER/IAC/LaRouche/NAP In San Francisco: Coincidence Or Conspiracy
The similarities and deceptive tactics between
the Newman/LaRouche fronts reported on this page and the current Ramsey
Clark/ANSWER/IAC cult are strikingly similar. Both seemingly different
groups originated in New York City; both arrived about the
in San Francisco, proclaiming themselves “the Left leadership”
in the mid to late 1970’s. Both cadres gained ascendancy as self-
proclaimed “anti-war vanguard”, as COINTELPRO was supposedly winding
down, or did it? All at the end of the Viet Nam war. Both seemingly
polarized groups are linked to the evasive and duplicitous Ramsey
Clark. Both seemingly opposite camps, but mysteriously linked to Ramsey
Clark since the Reagan/Bush Sr. Administration. These strange, secretive
groups, appearing to be separate on the surface, have been heavily
targeting San Francisco; doing massive fundraising of untold millions
of dollars and undermining the main body of the Peace and social justice
movements on an unprecedented scale ever since-All in the San Francisco
Bay Area; an area with a long history of notorious, destructive U.S.Intelligence/LaRouche
Below are similarities between Ransey
Clark's cult and LaRouche's cult fronts.

Inside The New Alliance Party, NAP
Aka Rainbow Alliance aka Rainbow Lobby etc. (a major LaRouche front)
By Dennis L. Serrette
Radical America, Vol. 21, #5, winter 1988
…At the outset, I want to answer the frequently asked question: “ Is Newman associated with LaRouche?” I simply do not know. I understand that Newman originally completely denied having joined with LaRouche, claiming, instead, that it was his followers who had, but that he was forced to retract the denial in the face of overwhelming evidence. The story told to all organization members who were not with Newman at the time was that Newman and his followers were with LaRouche when he was ‘a leftist.’ ‘A split from SDS,’ pre-Operation Mop-up. I have since learned that this was a lie, that they joined after LaRouche had made a decisive right shift, and participated in the campaign to destroy the Left. I did not see any direct evidence of a LaRouche connection while I was in NAP. But, I was never privy to what was going on at the top-Newman’s household. (Newman is Chairman of his one man rule, self designed ‘International Workers Party’, IWP- Editor) Newman often bragged about how much he learned from LaRouche, and, as noted below, the reported organizational operations of LaRouche’s group are frighteningly similar to those of Newman’s group.
Like LaRouche’s National Caucus of Labor Committees, NCLC, Newman runs a very tightly controlled organization. Like LaRouche, Newman has created numerous organizations (most only paper) with divergent names; some to attract particular individuals, some solely to make money, many with names so similar to true left organizations that unknowing individuals are often fooled (e.g., Rainbow Alliance and Rainbow Lobby, which have no connection to Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition; the Unemployed and Welfare Council, which attacked the National Welfare Rights Organization, etc.).
Newman controlled all the resources, personnel, and policies of the organization. When I left in 1984, he was living with three ‘wives.’ One was in charge of all the organization’s finances, which Newman boasted well-surpassed $1 million; another controlled all personnel/members; and the third was in charge of ‘national operations.’
The organization has set up its own internal cast system. Rank and file members worked 14-plus hours a day, often out on street corners raising money. Newman, on the other hand, spent most mornings reading in his large upper Westside apartment and jogging in Riverside Park. His workday began with his afternoon therapy sessions in his luxury Westside offices…..
Newman has brought a million-dollar-plus lawsuit against The Jackson Advocate , Jackson, Mississippi’s only Black newspaper, and its Black activist editor, Charles Tisdale. Why? When Newman saw the broad support Jesse Jackson received in the South, he decided to target some resources there. He assigned several New Yorkers to Mississippi. Tisdale, having knowledge about the Alliance, ( NAP’s destructive, undermining, infiltration tactics-editor) did not support NAP’s claim on his community. Knowing the time and resources required publishing a newspaper, and the time and resources required to defend a lawsuit, Newman had his lawyer slap a major lawsuit on Tisdale. It does not matter if NAP loses the case. NAP almost always loses. The suit serves its purpose of inflicting injury.
NAP had the audacity to ask me to testify against Tisdale. I told them that their request was outrageous. Next thing I knew, I too was in court, and receiving calls threatening to have the Sheriff come to my home at night to arrest me. (The Court dismissed their action against me.)
The Main Enemy
In short, Newman operates in total opposition to the movement. Both ‘the Left’ and ‘the movement’ are considered enemies by Newman. Newman has labeled his suit against Tisdale a suit against the Left, as though attacks on progressive institutions are a good thing. In fact, a review of the National Alliance will reveal far more venomous assaults on progressives than on reactionaries.
Newman uses left rhetoric well, and organizes with a left front. He appeals to what is good and progressive in people, and uses that to build his base. He will as quickly embrace as he will attack a movement, a progressive, an organization, a principle-based on how he can best opportunize from it. His membership, almost all of whom have absolutely no history in the movement, (are naive and inexperienced with activist groups and authoritarian cults-editor) have few other ways to see the issues.
Most members join ‘the organization’ via politics or therapy. (Newman’s social therapy cult-editor) Once an individual has been drawn close, she/he is met by two lieutenants and told that there is a secret underground organization, the International Workers Party (IWP), allegedly a left party organization. Membership in the organization requires that you reveal all your resources, and that you turn over everything to the organization. (Even personal relationships are said to belong to the organization, so it is common for a member to report on his/her partner.) Mandatory bi-monthly dues are assessed, and anything may be demanded at any time…..
These few pages offer but an overview of a complex, and, in my opinion, dangerous organization. Dangerous, not only to the innocent, well-intentioned people who are caught in its grasp, but also to the many it will try to exploit. Dangerous, because it uses a very progressive line, and untold millions of dollars , to prey on Black communities, to attack Black leaders and institutions, and to assault progressive organizations at a whim. Dangerous because it can lie outright-lie about being Black-led when Blacks do not sit on the top, (Newman is white-editor) do not control the resources, do not control personnel; lie to its members about its participation with LaRouche; lie about Charles Tisdale; lie about me; lie about whatever serves Newman’s interests, and put forth spokespersons who come to believe these lies. Dangerous because many members will do whatever they are told to do without ever evaluating what they have been told.
In conclusion, while I believe it is important that NAP be exposed for what it truly is, it is our job not to dwell on the organization, which craves controversy, but to concentrate our energies in our communities and organize, organize, organize. It is a vacuum that has been left open that allows NAP and other oppressive organizations to abuse our communities. We must fill that vacuum with genuinely progressive, community-controlled organizations. ….
… Newman created the New York City Unemployment and Welfare Council to pull in some welfare activists and attack the National Welfare Rights Organization. When Newman decided to switch the focus to electoral politics, he disbanded the New York City Unemployment and Welfare Council, deeply disappointing many of the ‘leaders’ who had no say in the matter. James Scott, Alma Brooks, and Neter Brooks, whose names Newman continues to use, all left the organization. Newman creates the organization, chooses who among the inner circle will ‘lead’ it, how it will run, what it will do, and when it is no longer needed….

Party has, under the guise of solidarity, brought disruption and chaos
to our efforts. Every chapter of NCBLG has felt the effects of the
NAP attempting to exploit our groups and activities. At times, the
seductive nature of their rhetoric has caused division and tragically
challenged our hard won credibility in local communities. The NAP’s
tactics are anti-Peace, anti-Justice, and anti-true solidarity with

1989 March on Washington for Lesbian & Gay Rights:
Joint letter, July 10, 1989, to:
Lesbian & Gay Associations, Stockholm, Sweden
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The undersigned groups and individuals request
in this letter that the membership application of the New Alliance
Party (USA) be rejected by the International Gay & Lesbian Association
(ILGA), or be postponed for consideration until the ILGA’s 1990 conference….
In San Diego, Ca., New Alliance Party (Newmanites)
Presidential candidate Lenora Fulani dominated a spring, 1988 AIDS
candlelight vigil with a long speech about her campaign. Many were
offended by her takeover of the event. (See St. Louis Gay & Lesbian
News Telegraph: “Behind the Scenes at the New Alliance Party.”)
At the 1988 nominating convention of the California
Peace & Freedom Party, Fulani led a walkout of her delegates from
the convention and declared the opening of a new Peace & Freedom
Party convention. (Attempted a hostile takeover/hijacking of P &
F.P.-editor) Both the genuine P & F.P. convention and the bogus
convention called by Fulani nominated candidates. The California Secretary
of State’s office could not determine who the duly elected nominee
for P & F.P. was and thus refused to accept either candidate,
leaving the P & F.P. without a presidential candidate on the ballot
unless P & F.P. could hold a second nominating convention. (See
Next: “Opportunists of the World Unite1)
At an Oct. 25, rally in San Francisco which
was intended to focus on defeat of two right-wing AIDS-related initiatives,
Fulani again staged a takeover of the event and attempted to give
a campaign speech, but was forced by the crowd and event organizers
to stop speaking. A few days prior to the rally, four major speakers
from the gay and lesbian community cancelled plans to attend because
they did not want to give credibility to Fulani or the New Alliance
None had been told that
Fulani would speak at the rally. (See Gay Community News-GCN: “ Fulani
fracas at S.F. rally”)
In Aug. 1987, New Alliance Party announced
that Vernon Bellecourt, leader of the American Indian Movement, had
endorsed the Fulani presidential campaign. It was latter brought to
light that Bellecourt was paid $1000 a month as a campaign consultant,
rendering his “endorsement” politically meaningless since he was employed
by the Fulani campaign. (See GCN: “A Queer Alliance?)…
The New Jewish Agenda, NJA, a U.S. organization
of progressive Jews based in NYC, reported an attempted takeover (hostile
takeover/hijacking-editor) of their membership structure by the New
Alliance Party in 1988 & 1989. NAP members joined New Jewish Agenda
in large numbers and dominated meetings (stacked the meetings-editor)
by attempting to steer NJA away from its own organizational agenda
and toward a NAP agenda. After many frustrating months, NJA voted
to expel from its membership all NAP members. (Correspondence from
New Jewish Agenda to Nat’l. Gay & Lesbian Task Force.)
In 1985, the Mississippi Welfare Rights Organization,
a group of Black women working for welfare reform in Mississippi,
reported that New Alliance Party members proposed a merger of NAP
and the Mississippi Welfare Rights Organization. After the merger
was rejected by the welfare rights group, NAP began scheduling meetings
with key organizers from the welfare rights group to conflict with
regular, monthly meetings of the Welfare Rights Organization. (See:
“Clouds Blur the Rainbow,” page 12)
The New Alliance Party was denied a seat on
the 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian & Gay Rights and Gay
Rights Steering Committee. The decision was unanimous based upon the
deceptive and disruptive tactics of the New Alliance Party.
The New Alliance Party claims affinity with
and supports Minister Louis Farrakhan, a notoriously anti-Semitic
and anti-gay leader of the Nation of Islam. Their alignment with Farrakhan
is completely inconsistent with their claims of support for the gay
and lesbian political agenda….(The NAP has also aligned itself with
Rev. Al Sharpton, a documented F.B.I. informant, according to Fox
news, 2002 and other mainstream press since 1980-editor)

NAP was founded by Fred Newman, a Stanford
University PhD, whom the U.S. Air Force paid to write his 1965 treaties
NAP recruits new members through a chain of
psychological clinics (Centers for Social Therapy and Research, and
Centers for Crisis Normalization), and manipulates its members with
the personal information it has acquired. (Does he share the info
with the Air Force/Pentagon or any other government or Intelligence
Agency? His patient’s need to know-editor)
NAP has a very bad reputation among legitimate Left groups in NYC (its home base), with speculation that either it is a front for an Intelligence agency, or that it is a “Moonie”-like psychotherapy cult trying to become the “Scientology of the Left”….
…No record of funds raised in the name of the (legitimate-editor) P & F.P. has been reported to the (legitimate-editor) Peace & Freedom Party.
NAP has never shared its fundraising secrets,
it financial or logistical support with the (legitimate-editor) Peace
& Freedom Party.

NAP’s leadership core was expelled en masse
in 1978 from the People’s Party (P & F.F. national Party affiliate,
1971-1980) for intelligence gathering and secrecy.

in 1974 regarding the Weather Underground and fugitive Jane Alpert.
NAP maintains extensive files on activists
in Labor unions, Leftist organizations, and community groups nationwide…..
