Clarence Connection To Claremont Intst.

 “He is a former law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.”

Todays hearings tore the Mask of The Fool off Trump’s face and revealed there are intelligent – and sane men behind him and the Insurrection? John Eastman was a law clerk for Clarance Thomas, whose wife knew Eastman – who is a member of the Claremont Institution that PROVIDES MOTIVES for Traitors. Was Pence aware of Claremont and is the source of the “rubber-room stuff?

The committee may be going after all the members of Claremont in establishing THE PLOT to USE Pence to overthrow the election. I think this is King Think Tank!

John Presco

BINGO! Luttig suggests there is a legitimate ongoing Insurrection. Does it involve the Supreme Court?

In 2021, Claremont senior fellow Glenn Ellmers wrote a controversial essay in Claremont’s The American Mind arguing that the United States had been destroyed by internal enemies and that a “counter-revolution” was necessary to defeat the majority of the people who “can no longer be considered fellow citizens”. According to Ellmers, “Most people living in the United States today—certainly more than half—are not Americans in any meaningful sense of the term.”[36]

Wiliams, the institute’s president, said its mission is to “save Western civilization”, particularly from the threat he said is posed by the progressive movement

In September 2016 the institute’s Claremont Review of Books published Michael Anton‘s “The Flight 93 Election” editorial. The editorial, written under a pseudonym, compared the prospect of conservatives letting Trump lose to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election with passengers not charging the cockpit of the United Airlines aircraft hijacked by Al-Qaeda.[24][25]

The Claremont Institute is a conservative think tank based in Upland, California. The institute was founded in 1979 by four students of Harry V. Jaffa.[3] It produces the Claremont Review of Books, The American Mind, and other publications.

The institute was an early defender of Donald Trump.[3] After Joe Biden won the 2020 election and Donald Trump refused to concede while making claims of fraud, Claremont Institute senior fellow John Eastman aided Trump in his failed attempts to overturn the election results.[4][5] In 2021, the Claremont Institute published an essay written by one of its senior fellows which called for a “counter-revolution” against the “majority of people living in the United States today [who] can no longer be considered fellow citizens”.

History[edit]

The institute was founded in 1979 by four students of Straussian political theorist Harry V. Jaffa, a professor emeritus at Claremont McKenna College and the Claremont Graduate University, although the Institute has no affiliation with any of the Claremont Colleges.[3] Under Jaffa and Larry P. Arnn, the institute became a leading Straussian-influenced conservative think tank, publishing on topics such as statesmanship, Lincoln scholarship and modern conservative issues.[6][non-primary source needed]

Arnn served as its president from 1985 until 2000, when he became the twelfth president of Hillsdale College.[7] Michael Pack was president from 2015 to 2017.[8] Ryan Williams was named president in 2017.[7]

The Claremont Institute publishes The Claremont Review of Books,[9] The American Mind,[10] The American Story Podcast[11] and Claremont Books.[12] The Washington, D.C., branch of the Claremont Institute, called the Center for the American Way of Life, opened in February 2021.[13]

The Claremont Institute provides fellowships.[14] Fellowships in the past have gone to prominent figures on the right such as Laura IngrahamBen ShapiroMark Levin and Mary Kissel.[15][16][17] The institute caused controversy by granting a fellowship in 2019 to the Pizzagate conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec.[18][19][20] National Review columnist Mona Charen wrote that “Claremont stands out for beclowning itself with this embrace of the smarmy underside of American politics.”[18] In 2020, Mark Joseph Stern of Slate magazine called the institute “a racist fever swamp with deep connections to the conspiratorial alt-right“, citing Posobiec’s fellowship and the publication of a 2020 essay by senior fellow John Eastman that questioned Kamala Harris‘ eligibility for the vice presidency.[21][22]

Trump advocacy and connections[edit]

The institute was an early defender of Donald Trump.[3] The Daily Beast stated Claremont “arguably has done more than any other group to build a philosophical case for Trump’s brand of conservatism.”[23]

In September 2016 the institute’s Claremont Review of Books published Michael Anton‘s “The Flight 93 Election” editorial. The editorial, written under a pseudonym, compared the prospect of conservatives letting Trump lose to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election with passengers not charging the cockpit of the United Airlines aircraft hijacked by Al-Qaeda.[24][25] The article went viral and received widespread coverage across the political spectrum. Rush Limbaugh devoted a day of his radio series to reading the entire essay.[26] Anton would go on to serve under President Trump as spokesman for the National Security Council, holding the position from 2017 to 2018.[25]

In 2019, Trump awarded the Claremont Institute with a National Humanities Medal.[27][28] In June 2020, former Claremont Institute president Michael Pack became head of the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM) under Trump.[29]

During the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, the institute received between $350,000 and $1 million in federally backed small business loans from Chain Bridge Bank as part of the Paycheck Protection Program. The institute stated this would allow it to retain 29 jobs.[23][30]

According to a November 4, 2021 Vice article, the actions of Claremont Institute leaders—senior fellows John Eastman, Brian Kennedy, Angelo Codevilla, and Michael Anton, as well as Ryan Williams, the Institute’s president and Thomas Klingenstein,[31][32] chairman of the board—who embraced Trumpism, culminated in the January 6 attack on the Capitol.[33] The Institute described themselves as the “vanguard”, leading those who were true Americans in a new civil war to save Western civilization from anti-American progressives.[33] Williams said that this was the Institute’s mission.[33] The Vice article said that it seems that Codevilla, who denounced the “ruling class”, coined the term “cold civil war” in 2017.[33] In a January 5 tweet with the hashtag #HoldTheLine, Claremont president emeritus, Brian Kennedy reported from Capitol Hill where he has spent the day, “We are in a constitutional crisis and also in a revolutionary moment…We must embrace the spirit of the American Revolution to stop this communist revolution.”[33] With Trump and his advisors, Eastman made a failed attempt in the first days of January 2021 to persuade then-Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the 2020 presidential election results, and he spoke at Trump’s rally on January 6, 2021, before the attack on the Capitol.[5][34][35] The details of Eastman’s attempt, described in a book by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, made national headlines in September 2021.[34][35] Shortly afterward, the American Political Science Association canceled panels involving Eastman and Claremont at its 2021 conference.[34] Thomas B. Edsall of the New York Times noted in April 2022 that the Claremont Institute, as well as the Institute’s magazine, American Mind, and others comprised the, “substantial intellectual infrastructure that has buoyed the Trumpist right and its willingness to rupture moral codes and to discard traditional norms.”

Biden years[edit]

In 2021, Claremont senior fellow Glenn Ellmers wrote a controversial essay in Claremont’s The American Mind arguing that the United States had been destroyed by internal enemies and that a “counter-revolution” was necessary to defeat the majority of the people who “can no longer be considered fellow citizens”. According to Ellmers, “Most people living in the United States today—certainly more than half—are not Americans in any meaningful sense of the term.”[36]

Wiliams, the institute’s president, said its mission is to “save Western civilization”, particularly from the threat he said is posed by the progressive movement.[37] On April 19, 2022, Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, who had participated in a weeklong fellowship at the Claremont Institute in 2017, blocked Biden’s travel mask mandate.[38][39][undue weight? – discuss]
