News Empire

To translate this text into any major language Click Here


The purpose of this document is to help the innocent and uninformed general public see the magnitude of Moon's Unification Church News Empire and to understand how the US and the governments of other nations are influenced by another (1) Sect. 


The overall background is made clear through the following documents that we have previously published regarding Moon's Unification Church.

About Mike Adams of Natural Health fame (2)

The Web of Influence and Control of the Unification Church (3)

The Unification Church and the North Korean regime bond (4)

Unification Church influence in: (a) The Washington, D.C., power brokers circles; and (b) The Christian Circles. (5)


The Washington Times

From Source (6) (dated 2005):

The Washington Times proved to be the essential vehicle for Moon's courtship of the North Korean dictatorship, which commenced in earnest in 1992 with a celebration of the dictator's birthday.

..... How has all this affected North Korea coverage in Moon's newspaper? These days [article dated 2005], The Washington Times promotes a hard editorial line on the "gulag state." The editorials are skeptical about negotiating with Kim Jong-Il. For a staunchly Republican media outlet, any other stance would be surprising (although the paper departs from its usual right-wing orthodoxy to run op-ed articles urging flexibility toward the North). But it is strange to read editorials denouncing China for providing food aid to North Korea, while the paper allows Moon front groups connected with Pyongyang to operate from its own building."

..... Indeed, Moon's relationship with the North Korean regime continues to expand today [article dated 2005]. He maintains a deluxe hotel in Pyongyang and is pursuing other ventures.


To Moon, his daily newspaper serves as a crucial instrument of propaganda and intelligence. "With The Washington Times at the core, we are establishing preeminence in the American print media," he once said. "By doing so, we can include all fields of intelligence. Today we [are] continually gaining important confidential information, not only from America but also from other governments all over the world."

From Source (7) (dated 2012):

In later years [article dated 2012], the church [Unification Church] built a business empire that included the Washington Times newspaper, the New Yorker Hotel in Manhattan, Bridgeport University in Connecticut, as well as a hotel and a car plant in North Korea.

..... Moon began rebuilding his relationship with North Korea in 1991, when he met the country's founder, Kim Il Sung, in the eastern industrial city of Hamhung. ..... He [Moon] added that he heard Kim tell his son: "After I die, if there are things to discuss pertaining to north-south relations, you must always seek the advice of President Moon."

(b) The Korean American professor and charismatic pastor who founded Olivet University, David Jang, was involved with Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church for many years. (8) (9) (11)  In addition, Sun Myung Moon was an occasional mentor of David Jang. (8)

Tiempos del Mundo (14)

Tiempos del Mundo was a Spanish-language print newspaper that started publication in Washington, D.C. in 1996 by News World Communications, an international news media corporation owned at the time by the Unification Church of Sun Myung Moon. The online website was then eventually merged with, the website of United Press International.

Insight on the News (15)

It was owned by News World Communications, an international media conglomerate founded by Unification Church founder Sun Myung Moon. Ceased publication: 2004 (print), 2008 (online).


As it should now be obvious to all, the Unification Church News Empire seems to have covered all bases once we include (3) It will be very hard for a politician and/or a major business not to be influenced by whatever is the Unification Agenda.

As we have said elsewhere... There is only one other unified Sect that could be compared with the Unification Church sect and that is Escriva's brainchild: Opus Dei.

Given their many similarities regarding the manipulation of the masses and their mindset to bring to the world the Messiah, as well as the Opus Dei allying themselves with anyone (16) they can use to advance their agenda (17), we would not be surprised that they are working together at some levels. What the Unification Church does not know is that when they cannot be used by the Opus Dei any more, they will be neutralized - just as the The Legionnaires of Christ (18) were.
