The Watchmen on the Wall
By Susan Steffen-Kraft
The Mission: To bring about less government, and with the help of God a better world. To bring about more personal responsibility and with education and leadership to teach others to embody the principles of the Constitution.
The Mission: To endorse the timeless principals of the Declaration of Independence and seeking to educate about this great document.
The Mission: To expose the forces of darkness and warn against those who seek to destroy the United States of America. They do this by taking it's Independence by undermining our personal liberties and national Independence and thus by doing so creating a One World Government!
The Mission: To awaken the apathetic people of this country to the designs of those who seek to destroy this Republic.
As to the man who founded the JBS. Robert Welch wanted to preserve freedom and prosperity for future generations.
So what prompted the attacks on the JBS. Why the hatred and the lies directed their way. In the fall of 1960 the Communist Party started working hard on a bill that was to be introduced as soon as Congress convened in 1961 in Jan. This bill would take away the funds of the House of UnAmerican Activities and as that would allow the Communists to now go uninvestigated, this was a pretty popular bill with them. The Communists had for years made this committee their project to be destroyed. And now was their chance.
Then the JBS went to work along with other conservative groups. All through the Christmas vacation they made this their priority. And they succeeded. This bill was defeated by a vote of 412 to 6 and both Democrats and Republicans came together to defeat it. The Communist Party was angry. Word went out that the Birchers had to go.
Nikita Khrushchev himself gave the speech that officially ordered all Communists to "resolutely unmask this anti-scientific and purely false ideology" of false ideology!" He then claimed that "Bourgeois propaganda is assuming an increasingly cunning nature. Its main weapon in the struggle against the Socialist camp and the Communist Parties is anti-communism. (Analysis of the Khrushchev Speech of January 6, 1961, Senate Judiciary Committee Report, June 16, 1961, p.74)
At that point a Communist Newspaper called the Daily Peoples World published the word that we were a "secret Fascist Society setting up cells across the country". Now as you might suspect that paper had little distribution which obviously would do little damage.
However the next week TIMES magazine came out with this:
Among the U.S. brotherhoods dedicated to the fight against Communism, nothing is quite like the John Birch Society. Except for an elite corps of leaders, its members shun personal publicity and their names are held by the society in strictest secrecy. Its cells, of 20 to 30 members apiece, take orders from society headquarters, promote Communist-style front organizations that do not use the John Birch name. Carefully avoiding normal channels of political action, the society accepts the hard-boiled, dictatorial direction of one man who sees democracy as a “perennial fraud” and estimates that the U.S. is 40-60% Communist controlled. In other times, other places, the John Birch 'Americanists' — as they call themselves — might seem a tiresome, comic opera joke. But already the society admits to cells in 35 states, and its partisans have made their anonymous and unsettling presence felt in scores of U.S. communities.(Time magazine, postdated March 10, 1961, pp. 21-22)
Oh yes they said it and that was within one week of the Communist Newspaper saying it. From that point on favorite Communist terms started appearing all over the American Press about us. From Extreme Rightists to Patriotic Extremists, from Super Patriots to Lunatic Fringe! Sound familiar? Yet many do not get the big picture.
Welch was criticized for exposing Eisenhower who allowed unnecessary gains of Communism and that they were involved in outright Communist duplicity. Now that did not go over well. This of course happened before the JBS was organized. And some John Birchers later did not agree with him although they agreed with most everything else. Whether Eisenhower was duped or used or knew and participated in this is a moot point. The Eisenhower administration backed Castro as if he were the 2nd coming of the Lord and or George Washington reincarnated.
"The Greensboro massacre occurred on November 3, 1979 in the city of Greensboro, North Carolina, United States. The "Death to the Klan March" and protest was the culmination of attempts by the Commununist Workers Party to organize mostly black industrial workers in the area Communist organizers publicly challenged the Klan to present themselves and "face the wrath of the people". During the rally, a caravan of cars containing Klansmen and members of the American Nazi Party drove by the housing projects where the Communists and other anti-Klan activists were congregating. By the time this was over, 5 were dead. The five were not members of the Klan or the Nazis. Thus in conclusion since we are anti Communist it just shows we are not racist or we would support Communism being as that is one area they are correct on.
We are called Ultra Conservative but that is high praise if it means this; "to support and retain the original institutions of the U.S. Government. That includes the rule of law under the Constitution and the political doctrines which our founding fathers espoused pertaining to individual rights and freedoms". This is what the great country of the United States of America is about.
In ending this I tell you we gave the warning despite being mocked, laughed at, and lied about but you did not listen. The watchmen told the truth and you chose to ignore it. U are now living with the consequences of your actions.
"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall and "all the kings horses and all the kings men" couldn't put the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution back together again.
