Laura Jordan Dietrich is the wife of Paul George Dietrich (her second marriage) who now[When?] runs Foxhall Investments, but is best known today as a professional lobbyist working for Philip Morris, British-American Tobacco and the US Tobacco Institute.

During the Reagan Administration she was the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs under John Bolton (who as US Secretary of State was running USAID). Bolton elevated her to be the US representative on the Human Rights Commission of the United Nations. She is a member of the Knights of Malta (which her husband and his partner ran for the Catholic Church)

More recently she has been outed by an employee (quoting her husband [[1]]) as a trainer of CIA agents. She has also attended deep state milieu such as Le Cercle. She has supported her husband in his many lobbying activities and financial scam operation.


Family and Career

She was educated at Stephens College, Columbia, Missouri in 1973.[1]

On December 5, 1978, she married Paul Dietrich who was a one-term Missouri Assemblyman who had established a think-tank and publishing house for lobbyists called the National Center for Legislative Research in St Louis (later shifted to Washington DC).

He was then associated with a couple of other Missouri Republican politicians (Samuel Landfather and others promoting extreme supply-side/ultra-Libertarian policies).

1977-81: Laura Jordan (divorcee with two children) claims to have been the Director of the Republican lobby group, the National Center for Legislative Research, St. Louis. Until she married the director, she was probably only an employee. (Note the NCLR was then in St Louis - later Washington) This was a Republican think-tank which ran publication-for-pay operation for lobbyists. The NCLR had three divisions (State Federal and International) and published cheap journals for each which were sent free to legislators and thought-leaders with articles written by shills for various industries.

They are all funded by selling editorial space to corporate lobbyists wishing to influence legislators Laura Jordan Dietrich says she is editor: (monographs) of Legislative Policy, State Anti-Trust Laws, (1979), and Public Employee Collective Bargaining,

1980 (Early): Paul Dietrich says he is running for Congress (later abandoned). Instead he ran the Fund for a Conservative Majority [2] with Jack Kemp and Ken Boehm. This was a major fund-raiser for Reagan's Presidency, and all corporate donations were transferred to the Ronald Reagan Fund. This operation was intertwined with the National Legal and Policy Center (NCLP) and the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). Later in this year, the Conservative Majority Fund spent over $2 million on Reagan's behalf in the Federal primary and general elections. [Note: as quoted in Elizabeth Drew, Politics and Money: The New Road to Corruption.]
