National Inholders Association
PRELIMINARY MATERIAL ONLY
Chuck Cushman is said to be more of a rabble rouser than an ideologue, Cushman has earned the nickname "Rent-a-Riot" for his ability to incite audiences to the verge of violent civil disobedience. He then carefully disassociates himself from responsibility for any threats or violence which actually result.
A former insurance salesman, Cushman's anti-environmental roots are traced to his experiences with limitations placed on property he owned in Yosemite National Park — a form of property ownership known as an in-holding. This personal economic interest led to the founding of the National Inholders Association as well as various other organizations which exist primarily as letterheads in Cushman's FAX machines.
1988: Charles "Chuck" Cushman's National Inholders Association. was tied up with Gottlieb and Arnold in the Wise Use movement — also with the Moonies.
