John Birch Society hoping
to gain traction in state

Portland Press Herald [ME], by Edward D. Murphy

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/11/2013 12:14:41 PM

The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 took away the John Birch Society´s prime issue -- communism -- but the organization is hoping to rebuild itself using Ron Paul supporters and opposition to a one-world government as a base. Anna Morkeski, the conservative organization´s state field director, said Maine´s status as a staunch Paul state, at least among Republicans -- initially, most of the Maine delegation to the party´s national convention last August backed Paul -- makes it a natural for the organization.
Intro corrected by staff

Comments:
Some of these people may be a little "out there" but they are one of the few groups who are even paying attention to the disaster to create a one world government known as Agenda 21. I don´t think it´s too far off to say this is what 0bama, along with his owner Soros, are trying to achieve. How could their actions prove otherwise.

My dad unfortunately knew a number of Birchers back in the 60´s and 70´s. They were convinced the Soviets were going to land in Mexico, turn left and be eating lunch in Phoenix the same day. If you didn´t agree the state was about to be overrun by commies you were part of the conspiracy. They formed patrols to scour the state watching for signs of a Soviet invasion. Just what we need.

#1, Aldrich Ames was recruited by the Soviets out of Mexico City.

McCarthy was right.

Could the BIrchers have been as well?

Amazing how the ´fringes´ sometimes turn out to not quite so ´fringey´.

The Birchers were wrong about the Soviet invasion. The Soviets didn´t invade anything except our colleges. And look at the results.

Hey Dudes, the Communists have relabeled themselves so many times it´s hard to follow them.

Maybe if you focused on those peoples methods and results it wouldn´t matter what they are called.

#1 Everything your dad knew about the Birchers and imparted to you is so wrong that it is difficult to respond. I knew of no Birchers who thought this way. Your dad was full of it. Formed patrols to scour the state for a Soviet invasion. BS.

Liberal one world (Rockefeller) republicans got a lot of mileage mischaracterising Birchers and their fear of soft on communism secular big government in the early 60´s, just as BushRomneyRoveRinos attempt to silence voices of the T party conservative movement.

Hmm. Maine went 56.3% to 41.0% for Obama in 2012, and sent Angus King, a left-leaning Democrat disguised as an Independent, to the senate.

I think they´re a trifle confused.

I am of an age where I remember the Birchers and Joe McCarthy well. I don´t have to look ´em up on Wikipedia. Joseph McCarthy was absolutely right as subsequent events have shown. The Birchers were also right, but too strident. Had they dialed it back a touch, they would be much more powerful today, IMHO.

#6...you are right about them relabeling themselves. Years ago they were smart enough to make the term Liberal to equal Communism and Progressive to equal Socialism.

Anyone remember when the Socialist in the House of Representatives used to have their "Congressional Socialist Caucus"? Now it is called the "Congressional Progressive Caucus".

There is reported to be between 70 and 90 members of the House, all Democrats, that are members of the Caucus and the Socialist Party. Why are Americans dumb enough to keep electing them?

Maybe we need to stop blaming Democrats and Republicans and start blaming Low Information Voters who vote for these Socialist and Communist. Obviously they are getting exactly what they didn´t know what they were voting for.

#4, if the Soviets took over our:
Educational system(In OUR humble opinion)
State Department(IMHO)
Bureaucracy(IMHO)
Hollywood
Journalism
Insurance Industry(Progressive, GEICO)
Etc.....
Can it REALLY be said they did NOT invade?
Or that the JB Society was wrong?

horacer, your dad was being lied to... I was a member of the John Birch society from 1959 to 1963 and nothing like that was evident. We actually went to people we knew and showed videos of the results of communism. And was there conspiracies to overthrow the government? Absolutely, have you ever heard of the TV show "I led 3 lives" you might be able to download it as a torrent, but it was the FBI cases regarding Communist cells in the US. Communism is alive and well, look at South America, the creeping crud called socialism, aka communism is crawling slowly toward our boarders.

Thank you #16, but I was never lied to. I witnessed these people in my home, usually at Sunday dinner. They were colleagues of my father. Arizona was very small at the time. I should have been more clear, these people thought columns of Soviet tanks were going to roll into downtown Phoenix anyday. If you disagreed you were part of the conspiracy. Reagan and Buckley both had problems with the movement because of the fringe conspiracy element. In the 60´s one of their devotees formed the first Minutemen group to hunt out soviets in the west.

My family is very anti-communist. But we´ve always believed they would take over thru Hollywood, the schools and government, not columns of tanks rolling in from Mexico.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:02:50 PM     Post Reply
Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

   

 



 
Elizabeth Warren whines about coverage

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

So I´m outside yesterday leaving work, and a woman stops me to say how much she loves me. I get this all the time. We chat a bit and she goes on to tell me how much she appreciates my covering what the other guys won´t. Then she said something that really stuck with me. "Neil, thank god you´re not cool." I told her, "is it that obvious?" She laughed. I laughed. But she got me thinking. It happens sometimes. I´m not cool. But I´m ok with that. Good thing, because I never was cool. But just admitting that to the mainstream media is very un-cool. Because the mainstream media

Why is US Senator Harry
Reid so concerned with

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

The Terrifying Implications of
the IRS Abuse-DOJ Connection

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
