Peter Levenda

  Peter Levenda image collage 2010

I first discovered Peter Levenda when he did his latest 2009 Red Ice Creations interview and he's been on my radar ever since. Derek and Sharon Gilbert also have a nice collection of free interviews with Levenda spanning several years. It's some fascinating material that has put his Sinister Forces trilogy towards the top of a list of books I'd like to get my hands on this year. Peter has some interesting posts on his blog, the latest of which comments on the strange statements that continue to be made by Pat Robertson on his 700 club news show. The most recent slur was towards the suffering victims of the Haiti earthquake and how he speculates the reason for this disaster was a "pact with the devil" that the people of Haiti somehow entered in to at some point in the past. Yes....he actually said this on a show aimed towards Christians.

Levenda puts a fascinating spin on this story by suggesting that it's Robertson who has actually made the pact with the devil and builds his case based on published reports from Time magazine in volume 2 chapter 15 of his Sinister Forces trilogy. Peter points to the support Robertson has given to murderous thugs such as Taylor from Liberia, Chiluba of Zambia, and Mobutu of Zaire. The accusation is that Robertson used these connections and alliances along with his Operation Blessings charity as a conduit for conflict diamonds.

I have not read the Time magazine information yet, but Levenda is clearly not a crackpot. I wished I could say the same for Robertson, I once looked up to this man during my early days of Christianity.

Pat Robertson has a history with this kind of foul remarks. I'm with you, he used to seem like a good man but as happens so often power has went to his head. If memory serves didn't he say the same sort of things about the people involved in the Tsunami and Katrina. Why do charities always fall? Greed! Elite trying to stay elite. Why give to someone that needs it, something I can keep for myself and keep others below me.
The best charity in the world, just died in my eyes to a hostile take-over from a board of directers. I can't believe it is for any purpose other than to pad pockets. Feed the Children founder Larry Jones was ousted last year due to disagreements with directors. This man gave his life and everything he had to this project for 30 years. It was one of the most respected charities with one of the best records at one point almost 95% of donations went to actually feed children. But in recent years, fuzzy math has been making them look good but the truth is hard to see. I now believe that the greed of the world has even ruined this once great organization. I want to give but not to buy a charity leader a beach house. Any Ideas?

I had no idea Larry Jones was getting such a high rate of 95 percent being used to actually feed children. Seems like the issue of assigning a value to the "gifts in kind" is the real sticking point here and an opportunity for shenanigans to happen. It's beyond sad that hungry children will lose out so someone already well off can be just a bit more powerful. Someone, somewhere out there wants these children to stay hungry. That's the only conclusion I can draw when you look at all the amazing things our species have accomplished in the past 50 years. Does anyone believe we don't have the power, resources, and technology to feed all the children now? Not just a meal hand out but some sort of sustainable system that is more localized.

In my opinion one of the most important questions here should be why?

I share your distrust of the new Feed the Children without a Larry Jones and would not feel safe in giving them money. I say try to spread it around in your immediate community where you can see for yourself what's going on. Sounds like you might be a good candidate to sit on a board somewhere yourself?

Thanks for the comment and please keep them coming.

Doing some more research on Feed the Children shows that an audited financial statement for 2008 showed a whopping 54% of their cash budget of 125 million being spent on television, radio, and direct mail postage.

I wonder if this is what Larry Jones took issue with?

I wonder what things might turn up if one went following that money and investigating who exactly got those tv, radio, and postage accounts?
