The Evils of Regnery Publishing
Edited on Tue Aug-17-04 12:52 PM by ck4829
"It was no accident that LUCIANNE GOLDBERG worked with ALFRED REGNERY, a man with isolationist and pro-Nazi forebearers. Regnery was friends with KEN STARR, and RICHARD SCAIFE, who had worked in the CIA for decades and runs his own version of the Agency whose purpose is to bring down President Clinton. This researcher detects the hand of a rightwing invisible government attempting to overthrow a democratically elected President, in a bloodless coup.

KEN STARR was a friend of the late Henry Regnery and is a friend of ALFRED REGNERY, Henry's son. ALFRED'S grandfather, William Regnery was a founder of the American Security Council.

The person most responsible for establishing the American Security Council was General Robert Wood, then Chairman of Sears Roebuck. Prior to Pearl Harbor, Wood was also the chairman of the America First Committee, an organization committed to opposing all efforts to aid Allies besieged by Nazi Germany. As national chairman, Wood made no effort to keep out openly pro-Nazi groups known to have been supported by Germany, such as the German American Bund. Radio priest Father Charles Coughlin's anti-Semitic and pro-Axis followers were also permitted by Wood to work within America First. A 1942 FBI report indicated that Wood's "patriotic" group had "been called upon to accept financial assistance from pro-Nazi sources."

In 1945, Regnery met Frank Hanighen, an Omaha businessman, who with two other isolationists, Felix Morley and William Henry Chamberlin, had started a weekly broadsheet in Washington, Human Events. Regnery became a co-owner and the treasurer of the paper, but he was unwilling to leave the Midwest. In 1947, with his father's help, he founded Henry Regnery Company. The first two books he published were pro-German attacks on the Nuremberg Trials. The company's third book was In Darkest Germany (1947) which reported that bombing raids in Germany's industrial North had left civilians starving and homeless. Neither of these nor the subsequent books Regnery had published made money, and by the time Buckley sent God and Man at Yale to Regnery in April 1951 the firm was barely solvent. In 1954 Regnery published two of Birch Society leader Robert Welch's books.

In the 1950's, Regnery Publishing was subsidized by the Central Intelligence Agency, according to Howard Hunt, as was Fredrick Praeger Publishing and Fodor's travel guides.

Henry Regnery funded Western goals, and organization headed by Dan Smoot. In 1955 Smoot left H.L. Hunt's operation and established the Dan Smoot Report along with Jew hater Gerald L.K. Smith.

President Reagan appointed ALFRED REGNERY to help dismantle the the Justice Department's Office of Juvenile Justice. In 1986 Regnery approved a $186,000 grant to the Center For Judicial Studies, a conservative think tank with links to Jerry Falwell. In 1986 Alfred S. Regnery approved a grant for a book in which he would receive $1,000 to write a chapter.

In December of 1993 Regnery was acquired by Tom Phillips, publisher of Human Events. When I subscribed to Human Events, I was struck by the fact that the publication went out of its way to identify political figures who were Jewish or half-Jewish, for example, John Schlesinger."

1. Wow. I'd read their list of smear books (which is about
all they seem to have published) and knew a little about that rotten family. I didn't realize it was such a who's who of right wing thuggery.
