    Researching his new book "Birchers", Matthew Dallek discovers paperwork documenting a successful espionage campaign effort thwart an anti-Civil Rights group group deemed a threat by some Jews JTA-A historian leafing through files in an archive discovered how a Jewish organization helped bring down an influential far-right extremist movement in the United States in the 1960's and 70's by going undercover and acting at self-appointed spies. The discovery of the Anti-Defamation League's covert operation targeting the John Birch Society is the basis of a chapter in a new book by political historian Matthew Dallek of George Washington University. Published in March,...
  • 1945: John Birch, Society man

    On this date in 1945, according to a fringe faction of American conservatism, the first victim of the Cold War was shot by Chinese Communists at Suchow, China, near Xi’an. John Birch, a military chaplain proselytizing in China and an agent of the CIA’s precursor entity Office of Strategic Services, had the kind of portfolio sure to rub Mao’s boys the wrong way. Apparently it was his personality that got him into trouble. On recon duty days after the end of World War II, he bumped into a patrol of Red Chinese. According to Time, he failed his diplomacy check....

    Remember the mighty Coffee Party which at one time had grown to a total of 200,000 members? Oh, you wonder where that laughably inflated figure comes from? Well, it was made up by Steve Tuttle of Newsweek (now with fewer readers than the real members of the Coffee Party). The purpose of that very obvious fake news was to hype a leftwing version of the Tea Party back in 2010 despite the fact that it numbered in the dozens at most. Well, the latest fake news comes to us by way of Politico in which writer John Savage is hyping...

    Youtube ^ | Circa 1974 | Unknown
    John Bircher alert. Title is misleading as it it's given in 1974 but supposedly he's quoting himself from 1958. I'll just assume he's more paraphrasing then quoting and adjusting the so-called predictions as the years go buy. The Communist stuff is kind of dated and rob this gem of some pertinence. I'm not a John Bircher, and I don't know why they fell out of favor other than being Alynsk'ed. Which Presidential Candidate sounds like the tail end of the echos from the past?

    Truth About Bills ^ | 12/21/2011 | Mark Mayberry
    Has Ron Paul committed the unpardonable sin?It is no secret that in politics the infamous “race card” trumps all. We have seen it used time after time. Most recently it has been used by Eric Holder to answer the question (at least in his own mind) as to why there is such a resounding cry for his resignation or impeachment. Before him was Jeremiah Wright who so eloquently told his church that Obama would make a better president because Hillary Clinton didn’t know what it was like to be a black man in a society run by rich white people....

    I received the link to this video clip in a recent email and I don’t know what to make of it. Years ago I remember my Dad (God rest his soul) contributing to the John Birch Society whenever possible. They seem to be pro-conservative and pro-Constitutional. Pardon me if I am among the last to learn all the information contained in this video. I find it quite disconcerting. I’m one of the ones who just loved (and prayed nightly) for Sarah Palin and thought for sure she was going to run. When that didn’t happen, I then looked to Bachmann,...

    The article focused on Perry’s comments at a Border Summit speech in south Texas (8-22-01), days before the 9-11 attacks, about bi-national health insurance — Texas-funded coverage for both U.S. and Mexican border residents. The governor’s statement favored a study, required by the Legislature, about "the feasibility of bi-national health insurance.” The DMN continued, "Katherine Cesinger, spokeswoman for Perry’s campaign, downplayed the topic of bi-national health insurance. 'A bill was passed by the Legislature that authorized a study to look into this issue, which ultimately concluded there were numerous barriers to accomplishing that idea, and the Legislature took no further...

    This Matthew Continetti  cover story — on Glenn Beck, Rick Santelli, and the Tea Party — from the latest Weekly Standard has recently been the locus of a bit of internecine warfare on the right.One of Beck's producers called it "intentionally misleading," a "collection of lies," and "a hit piece barely worthy of Media Matters." He also provided a toll-free number readers could use to cancel their subscriptions to TWS (while bizarrely claiming that he didn't support boycotts).Now, Beck and his associates have been known to avail themselves of the full emotive power of the English language to press home...

    Palin announced late Thursday that she would attend SRLC, joining Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee as announced speakers. Interestingly, Palin also announced on Thursday that she would not be speaking at CPAC, a gathering of conservatives in Washington in mid February -- a decision, according to those familiar with her thinking, due at least in part to the fact that the John Birch Society is one of the sponsors

    The Voice Magazine ^ | Jonas Clark
    In 1958 Robert Welch, founder of the John Birch Society, made some startling predictions against American Liberty. He believed there was a group of insiders intent on “the surrender of American sovereignty piece by piece and step by step to various international organizations of which the United Nations is the outstanding but far from the only example.” He laid out his predictions in 10 points and repeated them in a 1974 conference: 1. Greatly expanded government spending for every conceivable means of getting rid of ever larger sums of American money as wastefully as possible.

    The economy's growth has never before been so driven by real estate. Now that engine is sputtering. Jiany Massad isn't quite ready to throw in the towel on his fledgling career as a Miami real-estate tycoon. But if the local housing market continues to head south, the 30-year-old real-estate broker is already making alternate plans. "I might restart my old business," he says of a home decorating company that specialized in high-end window treatments. "At least it's real-estate-related." With home sales down by nearly a third in Florida last quarter, thousands of those who hoped to cash in on the...

    When Jesus was living, he did not align himself with the Jewish religious parties, then called Saducees and Pharisees, nor the secular authorities: King Herod and Rome. He obeyed the Mosaic law and even paid tribute. He told Nicodemus, an old man that he had to be born again to be saved. Jesus meant born spiritually. Jesus preached that this spiritual new baby would be then, dead to the world, living in the world but not of it. He pointed out that worrying about the future was not what a Christian would be doing because tomorrow has enough worries to...

Instead the director of Proyecto Latino de Utah and chairman of the Utah Hispanic Democratic Caucus, plans a pro-Bush demonstration in support of the president's policies on immigration. "We're going to focus on what worries us most, and that's immigration," Yapias said. "The president supports...

    The following article appeared yesterday in the New York Times that pushes their anti-gun agenda. I have juxtaposed excerpts from two other articles that reveal the facts that law-abiding gun owners know instinctively. Sometimes refuting the logic of liberals is like shooting fish in a barrel. No pun intended. FIRST ARTICLE: August 14, 2006 Editorial, New York Times Shoot First — No Questions Asked If ever a law was designed as a get-out-of-jail-free card for the trigger-happy gun owner, it’s one that comes to us via the gun lobby

    THE NEW WORLD DISORDER Truck drivers from India to take U.S. jobs? Union protests plan as attempt to undercut 'hard-working Americans' An American company is recruiting long-haul truck drivers from India with the goal of placing them with U.S. trucking firms. The Teamsters Union strongly opposes the plan by Gagan Global LLC of Garnerville, N.Y. Teamsters Union spokesman Galen Munroe told WND the plan "is yet another example of corporations exploiting a visa program to replace highly trained, hard-working Americans with cheap labor from overseas." Gagan Global has contracted with the Indian state government of Andra Pradesh and its Overseas...

    John Hawkins apparently has taken on a mission to prove that the Bush Administration is not creating a North American Union to replace the United States, or a new currency -- the Amero -- to replace the U.S. dollar. Recently, in a blog debate on this website, I exchanged views with Mr. Hawkins. When Mr. Hawkins declined to respond in what the editors termed “Round 4” of that debate, I concluded Mr. Hawkins allowed me to have the final word because he lacked a convincing rejoinder. Now, we see Mr. Hawkins wants to carry on the debate but this time...

    With virtually no mention in the mainstream media, Commerce Secretary Carlos M. Gutierrez convened on June 15, the first meeting of the North American Competitiveness Council (NACC), an apparently extra-constitutional advisory group organized by the Department of Commerce (DOC) under the auspices of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP). A March 31 press release on the White House website, under the title “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America: Progress,” announced the formation of the NACC. The press release noted that the NACC would meet annually “with security and prosperity Ministers and will engage with senior government officials on an...
