One of the leading European newspapers, Le Matin, of Paris, describes G. Gordon Liddy as "a man of fantastic intelligence and complexity." Educated privately by Benedictines and Jesuits, Mr. Liddy earned a B.S. degree from Fordham University and an Ll.D. from the Fordham Law School, graduating as an editor of The Fordham Law Review. After two years service as an Army artillery officer during the Korean War, Mr. Liddy entered the FBI as a Special Agent, rapidly earned multiple commendations from the late J. Edgar Hoover and, at age 29, became the youngest Bureau Supervisor at FBI national headquarters in Washington, D.C., where he served during the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations. Mr. Liddy resigned from the FBI in 1962 to practice international law in Manhattan. Thereafter he served as a prosecutor, ran unsuccessfully for Congress from the 28th district of New York, then in 1968, ran the presidential campaign of Richard Nixon in that district. In the Nixon administration, Mr. Liddy served first as Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury; was then appointed Enforcement Legislative Counsel, authored the Explosives Control Act and, in 1971 was sent to the White House as Staff Assistant to the President of the United States. At the White House, Mr. Liddy had oversight responsibility for Treasury policy on firearms and explosives and authored the memorandum that led to the creation of the Drug Enforcement Administration. Subsequently he was assigned additional special duties as a member of the top secret White House Special Investigations Group. Mr. Liddy resigned his White House post to accept the positions of General Counsel of the 1972 Republican presidential campaign and the campaign finance committee, with additional duties as campaign political intelligence director. The rest is history. For his role in Watergate, and for refusing steadfastly to implicate others, Mr. Liddy was sentenced to over twenty years in prison. He served nearly five years, many in maximum security, including 106 days of solitary confinement, before his release by President Carter "in the interests of justice". Rated by the Treasury Department as a pistol expert whose draw and hit was timed electronically by the FBI at 60/100 of a second, Mr. Liddy was once specially assigned by the Secret Service to protect President Eisenhower. He is an FAA licensed pilot and a life member of the Special Operations Association.

He has authored five New York Times Best Sellers as well as hundreds of magazine articles. His latest book, "FIGHT BACK Tackling Terrorism Liddy Style", published February 14, 2006, ranked high on the New York Times bestsellers list within two weeks of hitting bookstores.

Mr. Liddy has lectured extensively, from Berkley to The Oxford Union. He is an actor in motion pictures and television including co-starring roles in Miami Vice, Airwolf, MacGyver, Feds, Perry Mason and 18 Wheels of Justice. Mr. Liddy is also a frequent guest on Fox Television’s Hannity & Colmes, and other top rated news shows on MSNBC, CNN, and CNBC. In 1992, Mr. Liddy enrolled with the Israeli Defense Force Paratroop School at Tel Nov, qualified for, and was awarded his wings. In October 2001, he re-qualified, and has made three additional jumps with the elite IDF parachute regiment. In January 2003 he was bestowed the honor of leading the stick out of the aircraft. In August 2003 and July 2005, he rode his Harley Davidson motorcycle the full 1,846 miles from Washington, D.C., to Sturgis, South Dakota for the 63rd and 65th annual motorcycle festival. He’s also ridden with the Los Angeles chapter of Hell’s Angels and is a member of the Honor Legion of the Police Department of the City of New York. In November 2005, having just celebrated his 75th birthday, The G-Man was selected to compete in the highest rated reality TV show, NBC’s Celebrity Fear Factor. The show will air, summer 2006. On March 3, 2006, Mr. Liddy hit the ground with Pentagon Officials in Iraq and Kuwait. Having spent two weeks on the battle lines with U.S. Military, he has much to convey about the war in Iraq. Mr. Liddy’s lecture audiences have ranged from an association of independent over the road truck drivers to the Oxford Union and, according to The Wall Street Journal; he is "one of the most sought after speakers in the nation."

Today, Mr. Liddy is the host of THE G. GORDON LIDDY SHOW. His nationally syndicated radio program celebrates 14 years in February 2006. The show is broadcast in more than 150 markets and is heard on Sirius and XM satellite radio and around the world via internet streaming.

Elizabeth Farah is senior vice president for marketing and administration and co-founder of WorldNetDaily.

She was part of the fast-growing, independent news site’s original design team. It was her marketing skills that rocketed WorldNetDaily to the No. 1 spot on the Internet Top 100 Websites chart less than two years after its launch, a distinction the site held for 30 straight weeks—until the Top 100 site went out of business!

A former real estate marketing consultant and political lobbyist, Farah attended the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, but considers herself to be primarily self-educated.

Farah is known for her passionate and well-articulated views on everything from constitutional rights to personal responsibility. She has wrestled with the subjects of free speech, the dilemma of education in our country as well as the Internet revolution. Her fiery WorldNetDaily columns, which include such topics as gun control, presidential scandals, the character of a nation and much more, have been cited by Rush Limbaugh and dozens of other media stars.

In addition to being sought out as a television guest commentator, Farah hosted and co-hosted her own radio show, the “Farah News Hour,” for almost two years. The show was broadcast daily on 14 affiliates of two satellite networks, on short-wave internationally and on the Internet.

Currently, she is very involved in coordinating all of WND’s 10-year anniversary activities—including this cruise!

 

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

David Kupelian is a veteran journalist, best-selling author, and managing editor of the world’s leading independent Internet news source, WorldNetDaily.com.

He is also a widely read online columnist and the driving force behind the critically acclaimed monthly news magazine, Whistleblower.

His first book, “The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom,” was released in August 2005 and remains one of the nation’s most talked-about, controversial and hot-selling books on current events and the culture war. It has been enthusiastically endorsed by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, David Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, D. James Kennedy and many others, and has received over 100 passionate five-star reviews on Amazon.com, many reviewers claiming the book has radically opened their eyes and changed their lives forever.

Kupelian is a frequent television guest, having been featured on Fox News’ “Hannity & Colmes,” “Dayside” and “Your World with Neil Cavuto” MSNBC’s “The Situation with Tucker Carlson,” D. James Kennedy’s “The Coral Ridge Hour,” CBN’s “The 700 Club” and “NewsWatch,” as well as hundreds of radio interviews.

He’s a dynamic speaker, exposing for audiences the hidden “marketing of evil” assaulting them from every direction. Drawing from the day’s headlines and events, he demonstrates dramatically how evil is “packaged, perfumed and gift-wrapped” to make it look good – and good made to look evil. He shows how millions of Americans have been tricked into rejecting America’s core Judeo-Christian values, and into accepting self-destructive beliefs and behaviors that would have shocked and horrified all previous generations. And most important, he reveals what all of us can and must do to protect ourselves and our families from the “marketers of evil” that increasingly dominate American culture and politics.

Kupelian lives in the Northwest with his wife and children.

Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., is renowned among news media outlets worldwide for his ability to break down today's most pressing international issues in a manner engaging and concise – and at times controversial.

The author of 15 books, Corsi rose to national prominence with the 2004 release of "Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry" – a No. 1 New York Times best-seller.

His latest book, a New York Times best-seller, is "The Late Great USA: The Coming Merger With Mexico and Canada." He has also authored "Atomic Iran: How the Terrorist Regime Bought the Bomb and American Politicians," in which he analyzes the questions arising from the complex political climate in the Middle East.

Corsi, a staff writer with WorldNetDaily, is also co-author of "Black Gold Stranglehold: The Myth of Scarcity and the Politics of Oil" and co-author with Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell of "Rebuilding America"

His latest book, "Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders," explores the economic ramifications of insecure U.S. border control and increased illegal immigration into the United States.

In "Minutemen," Corsi emphasizes his opposition to illegal immigration – he, in fact, married an immigrant from Argentina – and is of the belief that Sept. 11 could have been avoided with stronger enforcement of the border. An advocate of a "much stronger middle class," Corsi strongly opposes what he asserts is President Bush's desire to create a "North American Union" – an ideology he dismisses as "of, by and for the elite."

Corsi holds a Ph.D in Political Science from Harvard University and in 1981 was designated top-secret clearance by the Reagan administration to provide government officials with anti-terrorism training and hostage survival. Dr. Corsi is a frequent on-air contributor to Fox News Channel. In addition to his political science expertise, he has helped develop international financial-services companies specializing in securities products.

A native of Ohio, Corsi resides with his wife and daughter in New Jersey.

He has regular segments on some of America's top radio programs and serves routinely as a co-host of ABC Radio's national "The John Batchelor Show." Klein also has a column that appears every week on Page 2 of The Jewish Press, America's largest weekly Jewish newspaper.

Klein, the author of "Schmoozing with Terrorists," has broken many of the top Mideast stories since opening WND's Jerusalem bureau in February 2005. He covered Israel's withdrawal from Gaza on the ground, reporting from the Gaza Strip daily three months before the withdrawal until the last of the Jewish communities were evacuated in mid-August.

Klein's previous interview subjects have included PLO Leader Yasser Arafat, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Hamas chief Mahmoud al-Zahar, Albanian Prime Minister Fatos Nano, former Lebanese Prime Minister Michel Aoun, Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt, imprisoned spy Jonathan Pollard, leaders of the Taliban, Palestinian negotiation minister Saeb Erekat, former Israeli foreign minister Shlomo Ben Ami, worldwide Al-Muhajiroun leader Omar Bakri Muhammad, West Bank Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade leader Ala Senakreh, 2002 siege of the Church of the Nativity leader Jihad Jaara, among many others. Klein also secured the only interview with the families of the three U.S. contractors killed in the 2003 Gaza ambush.

Klein made headlines in 1999 when he traveled overseas to spend time with and interview members of a group connected to al-Qaida. His article about the experience, "My Weekend with the Enemy," was published in major-city newspapers in four countries. He also made news in November 2005 when he and national radio host Rusty Humphries interviewed the gun-toting senior leadership of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, and again the next month when he was barred from broadcasting in Syria because, according to several Syrian officials, of Klein's Jewish faith.

Klein previously served as editor in chief of the Commentator, the undergraduate student newspaper of Yeshiva University. He can be read every day on WorldNetDaily.
