Since Marshall Meyers and Russell Bikoff are essentially working out of the same office for PIJAC (see “Free Lobbying”), the connections to government officials are interesting.  Mr. Bikoff’s personal reference in the Justice Department turned out to be the Acting Director of the Executive Office for Immigration Review,  Judge Thomas Snow and his former colleague Charles Brooks at the criminal division of the U.S. Dept. of Justice.

Council on Foreign Relations Archives Deposited at Princeton University PRINCETON, N.J. — The records of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the most influential American foreign policy organization in the twentieth century, have been deposited for research at Princeton University’s Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library. Formal announcement of the recent transfer came at a reception at the library attended by the nearly 500 members of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations meeting this week in Princeton. June 25, 1999

In 2012, FPRI established a Princeton Committee to bring experts and policymakers in foreign affairs together with individuals who seek a deeper understanding of the complex issues confronting us today.  The format for these briefings, to be held in Princeton beginning in January 2013, is an intimate, salon-like setting in which participants may interact and exchange views with experts to a degree and depth not attainable in public forums. The Princeton Committee is directed by John R. Haines, trustee of the Foreign Policy Research Institute.

Mission: The FPRI Center for the Study of Terrorism conducts fact-based analysis of actual and potential uses of terrorism as a tactic by adversaries of the United States and its allies so that we may provide policy guidance to government officials and private sector decision-makers that will improve the effective and efficient prevention of, recovery from, and response to terrorist actions.

Founded in 1955, FPRI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to bringing the insights of scholarship to bear on the development of policies that advance U.S. national interests. We add perspective to events by fitting them into the larger historical and cultural context of international politics. The publication produced by FPRI is Orbis, edited by Mackubin (Mac) Owens, Professor of National Security Affairs at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island.

In 2011, FPRI received $1,609,001.00 in government grants.  Searching on USAspending.gov reveals ZERO grants for fiscal year 2011.  How did FPRI receive 1.6 Million dollars in government grants without the money showing on usaspending.gov?  Why is the government paying a non-profit 501C3 to conduct research on foreign policies that influence laws and regulations in the Department of Defense when a 501C3 is not legally allowed to influence any laws or regulations by IRS regulations?  Direct Lobbying is “any attempt to influence local, state or federal legislation by contacting any legislature, legislative staff or government employee to persuade him/her to propose, support, oppose, change or otherwise influence legislation.”

Why did Harry Richlin, assistant secretary FPRI, give a loan to FPRI as “monthly compensation” with a balance due of 64,827.00 without the approval of the board or any committee and without a written agreement when the books are kept by Harry Richlin who has a salary of $85,393.00?

William J  Malampy is listed as an independent contractor for FPRI and was paid $279,000.00 for research services and was Deputy Director at Foreign Policy Research Institute although he was not listed as a key employee or officer .  The highest paid officer of FPRI was Alan Luxenberg at $123,392.00.

Stephen Gale is Senior Fellow of the Foreign Policy Research Institute and FPRI Center for Terrorism and Counterterrorism co-chair .  Dr. Gale has recently presented testimony to the Senate Committee on Appropriations on the future of terrorism in the US and its potential impacts.  Dr. Gale is listed as an independent contractor for research services on the FPRI tax return for the amount of $205,008.00.  He is listed as Prof. of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania.  As a consultant on issues related to security and terrorism, Dr. Gale has undertaken assignments for Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories, the US department of Energy, and a number of defense related agencies. In addition, he has also worked on security projects for such private sector organizations as Exxon Corporation International.

Gregory P. Montanaro is executive director and associate vice president, federal affairs for Drexel University.  He is also listed as an independent contractor on FPRI’s tax return for research services with compensation of $149,262.00.  Mr. Montanaro’s resume is impressive.  He is also COMMONWEALTH TRUSTEE Lincoln University, Consular Corps Association of Philadelphia – Rep for Austria, a country with a known terrorist cell, al-Qaeda and  was/is Executive Director of FPRI’s Center on Terrorism.

Members of the Consular Corps Association of Philadelphia are responsible for enhancing and coordinating relations between their respective countries and the greater Philadelphia region.

Counterterrorism: The Roles of Federal, State and Local Agencies found in the FPRI published papers, states “To achieve these objectives, the DOD report speaks to the need for developing certain core capabilities, including intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, information sharing, joint operational capabilities for homeland defense, and interagency and intergovernmental coordination”.

Why would the administration hire a 501C3 to conduct research and report back to the administration on issues that directly effect legislation when 501C3s are restricted from “any attempt to influence local, state or federal legislation..”
