Invitation-only secret public policy membership society is a tax exempt charity

So right-wing power center CNP, the powerful, off the radar Council for National Policy, a by-invitation-only private, secret membership society of leaders, funded by undisclosed donors, is a charitable non-profit under the laws of these United States of America. Of course it is.

Makes sense, I guess, considering the power and reach of its secret membership (identities sometimes leaked) who, in addition to sometimes having the final say on who the Republican presidential candidate is (2016), rotate seats on the boards of the Federalist Society, the Heritage Foundation, The Progressive Policy Institute (“radically pragmatic”), Judicial Watch, ALEC, the Cato Institute, Donors Trust and Charles Koch’s personal favorite, The Institute for Humane Studies.

Eh, what are you gonna do? The law’s the law. No law against powerful partisan zealots secretly meeting as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) or (c)(4) corporation. This is America!
