About the Author
For the past decade, William F. Jasper has served as a senior
editor of The New American magazine, published by an affiliate of
The John Birch Society.
Mr. Jasper has covered firsthand many of the major UN conferences,
including the 1992 "Earth Summit" in Rio de Janeiro, the 1998 Rome
summit for an International Criminal Court, and the September 2000
UN Millennium Summit in New York. His previous book, Global Tyranny
— Step by Step: The United Nations and the Emerging New World Order
(1992), has been praised as the most authoritative and detailed
expose of the UN ever written.
As a student, William Jasper was an early victim of the radical
Marxist indoctrination so prevalent on our nation's campuses.
However, following a thorough investigation into the authenticity of
what he had been taught, Mr. Jasper went through a conversion. That
conversion led to his joining The John Birch Society staff in 1976
as Director of Research for the Society's West Coast office. He soon
began contributing to the Society's magazines, American Opinion and
The Review of the News, which were superseded in 1985 by The New
During the late 1970s and early 1980s, Mr. Jasper attended, as an
undercover reporter, numerous meetings of revolutionary, terrorist,
and/or subversive groups. He also worked as a research adviser for
the video documentary No Place to Hide: The Strategy and Tactics of
Terrorism, produced by Congressman Larry McDonald's Western Goals
In 1988, Mr. Jasper scripted and produced his own video documentary,
Out of Control: The Immigration Invasion, based on a decade of
research, which included numerous trips to our southern border
riding alongside members of our border patrol. That documentary was
perhaps the first effort to thoroughly expose the revolutionary
agendas at work in creating the immigration crisis — a crisis that
didn't gain widespread public recognition until several years later.
In the months following the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing tragedy, Mr.
Jasper interviewed literally hundreds of witnesses. His series of
articles in The New American provided devastating evidence
contradicting the official "lone-bomber" scenario so tenaciously
promoted by the Janet Reno Justice Department.
