Recently a woman told me of a lie she had believed for decades concerning The John Birch Society It was a lie spread nationwide by organized-enemies of the John Birch Society (JBS) in the 1960s. When she discovered the truth she was embarrassed for having accepted a lie as the truth, but as I told her many thousands of Americans accepted the lie because it was spread so widely. The lie began and was spread as a propaganda program of disinformation about The JBS. It was spread by the Communist Party, USA in the 1960s as a way to discredit The JBS because the communists had found The JBS to be so effective in exposing their nefarious aims, methods, moles, history, crimes and plots. Deception has long been a tool employed by communists to smear their enemies and thus JBS was smeared with an underserved negative reputation.
Exposing the Internationalists inhabiting the roles of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission (TC) for their influence in government, academia, media and elsewhere in support of building a ???¦?new world order???¦? under a global government empire is another achievement The JBS is known for by those who actually have taken the time to know The JBS.
The exposure of and growing opposition to the central bank ???¦?? the Federal Reserve System- through books, through articles in THE NEW AMERICAN magazine, through reprints, and online articles has been another achievement brought on by efforts of The JBS in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and. The JBS is known for publishing such books as FINANCIAL TERRORISM, by John F. McManus in 1995 that warned of the dangerous inflationary consequences of a fiat, paper money system under monopoly control of the Federal Reserve System.
There was the very in depth book THE CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND ???¦?? A SECOND LOOK AT THE FEDERAL RESERVE written by G. Edward Griffin and first published by The John Birch Society in 1994. The 608-page book has grown in popularity and fame since the 2008 real estate market crash and the unconstitutional bailouts that followed as Americans became more concerned over the financial system.
For several decades the John Birch Society leadership and membership is known for its successful opposition
The John Birch Society was recognized for its leadership role in bringing about the impeachment of President Bill Clinton in the U.S. House of Representatives and bringing the impeachment to the U.S Senate for trial. A JBS education campaign brought forth bill boards, petition drives, speaking events, television advertisements, articles in major newspapers to expose the Bill Clinton???¦??s impeachable offenses such as acceptance of bribery from foreign sources helping his election campaign in exchange for favors. Clinton???¦??s ties to the Riadys, the Lippos group, to John Huang, Maria Hisa, the Macau criminal syndicate figure Ng Lapseng, etc. found space in the pages of JBS publications or publications (i.e. he 1998 book ???¦?YEAR OF THE RAT- How Bill Clinton Compromised U.S. Security for Chinese Cash???¦?) The JBS offered through its bookstore.
The John Birch Society is known for its consistent exposure of a master conspiracy of power-elites that exist for the purpose of gaining domination over the entire earth (Unified efforts of the Order of the International Communism, Round table Groups: CFR and Royal Institute of Foreign Affairs, Trilateral Commission, Bilderbergers, etc.). In 1966 much of the historical information about the global combination of power-elites, master-minds, ambitious and avarice power seekers was exposed by the historian and Insider Dr. Carroll Quigley in his 1,348-page TRAGEDY AND HOPE. Dr. Quigley claimed to have been given access to the secret records of the combination, what he called a ???¦?network,???¦? for two years in the 1960s. What are some of the assertions that JBS leadership quoted from Dr. Quigley???¦??s massive volume?
???¦?There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960???¦??s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies (notably to its beliefs that England was an Atlantic rather than a European Power and must be allied, or even federated, with the United States and must remain isolated from Europe), but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known???¦?????¦??the American branch of this organization (sometimes called the ???¦??Eastern Establishment???¦??) has played a very significant role in the history of the United States in the last generation.???¦?
???¦?? Dr. Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope- A History of the World in Our Time, The MacMillan Company, New York, 1966, page 950.
Dr. Quigley???¦??s 1,348-page book wasn???¦??t on the NEW YORK TIMES best-seller list as you can imagine. Mostly his audience was for the book was found in university professors, researchers, and JBS leaders who sought a deeper understanding of forces at work in our country. One such professor was Dr. Cleon Skousen who wrote a book called ???¦?THE NAKED CAPITALIST???¦? based upon Dr. Quigley???¦??s book to bring its information down to a more digestible size for the average busy citizen to read. The first page of former FBI agent, former Salt Lake City Police Chief Skousen???¦??s book contained this important information.
???¦????¦??I think the Communist conspiracy is merely a branch of a much bigger conspiracy!???¦?? The above statement was made to this reviewer several years ago by Dr. Bella Dodd, a former member of the National Committee of the U.S. Communist Party.Perhaps this is an appropriate introduction to a review of Dr. Carroll Quigley???¦??s book, Tragedy And Hope.
Dr. Dodd said she first became aware of some mysterious super-leadership right after World War II when the U.S. Communist Party had difficulty getting instructions from Moscow on several vital matters requiring immediate attention. The American Communist hierarchy was told that any time they had an emergency of this kind they should contact any one of three designated persons at the Waldorf Towers. Dr. Dodd noted that whenever the Party obtained instructions from any of these three men, Moscow always ratified them.
What puzzled Dr. Dodd was the fact that not one of these three contacts was a Russian. Nor were any of them Communists. In fact, all three were extremely wealthy American capitalists!???¦? — Dr. W. Cleon Skousen, The Naked Capitalist- A review and commentary on Dr. Carroll Quigley???¦??s book TRAGEDY AND HOPE, 1970, page 1.
Dr. Skousen pointed out that there was a connection between combined monopolistic capitalists and monopolistic communists. Dr. Quigley named one of the organizations found in the United States that is one of the ???¦?Round Table Groups???¦? that is part of the network that often cooperates with the communists in seeking the goal of world domination. Here???¦??s what Dr. Quigley wrote:
???¦?In New York it [the secretive combination] was known as the Council on Foreign Relations, and was a front for J.P. Morgan and Company in association with the very small American Round Table Group. The American organizers were dominated by the large number of Morgan ???¦??experts,???¦?? including Lamont and beer, who had gone to the Paris Peace Conference and there became close friends with the similar group of English ???¦??experts???¦?? which had been recruited by the Milner group. In fact, the original plans for the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the Council on Foreign Relations were drawn up at Paris.???¦?
???¦?? Dr. Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, page 950.
JBS publications have repeatedly made these secret-combinations such as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) known since the early 1960s and for that JBS members have been branded by establishment media, a media mostly controlled editorially by CFR members in high places within media outlets, as ???¦?conspiracy theorists???¦? even though JBS publications have published the ???¦?conspiracy facts???¦? no matter what kind of scorn is heaped upon their heads. Again The JBS is known for being steadfast in telling the truth even that truth if is unpleasant of if the publication of the truth brings scorn and ridicule upon them as the messengers delivering it.
One more admission against interest was offered by non-other than David Rockefeller; it is an admission that vindicates the claims of The John Birch Society???¦??s publications over the decades that there is a conspiracy seeking to build a global empire.
???¦?Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure???¦?one world, if you will. If that???¦??s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.???¦?

The John Birch Society is known for its strong promotion of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution that requires Congress to declare war before presidents execute war and for JBS opposition to unconstitutional wars that have not been Congressionally-declared wars but are interventionist wars fought for enforcement of UN Security Council Resolutions or on behalf of UN Regional Arrangements such as SEATO or NATO.
The John Birch Society is known for the effectiveness of its educational actions of its many volunteer chapters in cities across the fifty states and the way JBS Chapters and Ad-hoc Committees work in concert with The JBS agenda and the other JBS Chapters to achieve a synergistic influence in the minds of voters. Even though JBS has long been under attack by largely establishment-controlled mainstream media, JBS Members are known for staying the course despite the constant attacks they have suffered
JBS is known for its national magazines ???¦?? AMERICAN OPINION, REVIEW OF THE NEWS, and for the last twenty-eight years, THE NEW AMERICAN. Today THE NEW AMERICAN has seen hundreds of thousands read its articles online at www.thenewamerican.com.
Publications of The JBS are known for being non-partisan and even criticizing when necessary top candidates and elected officials of both the Republican and Democratic party. Dr. Carroll Quigley made an observation in his book ???¦?TRAGEDY AND HOPE???¦? that can help Americans understand that the two major political parties appear to be under establishment-control at the top.
???¦?The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ???¦??throw the rascals out???¦?? at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. ???¦? — Dr. Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, pages 1247-1248
What else is JBS known for? It is known for the dozens of books it publishes today and has published in the past. Books like the famous ???¦?NONE DARE CALL IN CONSPIRACY???¦? published in 1970 that sold millions of copies and was finally published in foreign language editions in Europe as well. Or the excellent 1988 book THE SHADOWS OF POWER THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS AND THE AMERICAN DECLINE, by James Perloff that is still selling strong. The United Nations has even sent invoices to order the paperback book by Steve Bonta, Ph.D., INSIDE THE UNITED NATIONS- A CRITICAL LOOK AT THE UN. Why? Because the UN needs to do damage control and hide what it can or obfuscate that which they don???¦??t want Americans at large to understand about their incipient world government.
JBS has been known for its long-time opposition to the convening of an Article V Convention for the purpose of amending the Constitution. The well-informed opposition for such a convention has filled many pages of JBS publications over the years and has had a positive effect upon the understanding of thousands of State Legislators about the dangers of convening such a convention at this juncture in America???¦??s life.
We have touched on some of the actions, publications, and views that The JBS is known for, but with its decades of service to America as the memory of America, as the warning voice of America, as protector of the Constitution we can???¦??t do more than scratch the surface of the JBS???¦?? history.
JBS detractors often repeat the same false charges over and over to smear The JBS with stinky smells. Nelson Rockefeller at a 1960s Republican convention once claimed that the Party needed to get rid of the Nazis, Birchers, and Communists in the Party. This method of sandwiching The JBS between two already nasty smells was meant to rub off such a view upon JBS that it would be shunned. There term “extremism” was applied to JBS because JBS sought to hold fast to constitutional principles for our government’s limitation of power. But I suggest that rather than only hearing the detractors Americans need to take a closer look at what The JBS is really known for, for its patriotic steadfastness in seeking restoration of our Constitutional Republic’s order of law under constitutional law.
JBS has websites where more can be learned such as www.jbs.org and www.thenewamerican.com or their online bookstore www.shopjbs.org.
In a nutshell the mission of The John Birch Society is to build and use an action-oriented body to restore Constitutionally limited government while exposing and defeating a Conspiracy attempting to enslave us. Financial support for The John Birch Society, a society named after a U.S. Army Captain murdered by communists at the close of World War II, can be offered as well on the website www.jbs.org. If you understand the importance of a non-partisan network of patriots working to defend our constitution to the well being of America???¦??s future you may become like me a proud member of The JBS.
