The John Birch Society

altOh yes, those legislative busybody scanners are at it again, mandating that full-body imaging x-ray devices be installed in every airport in the nation by 2013, under the illusory premise of increasing safety.

altThe following article originally appeared in the October 2, 1995 issue of The Birch Log. Its message is even more timely today than when it was first written 15 years ago.

Our nation is in the midst of an ongoing revolution in which leaders allow and even promote the casting adrift of the values, traditions, and behavior that have fostered America's greatness. Many of those who should be protecting our nation's cultural heritage are insidiously working to destroy it. One of the means being used to carry out this sinister business is uncontrolled immigration.

altJBS CEO Art Thompson offers his analysis of the week's news and wastes no time in discussing tax breaks, Obama's new infrastructure spending bill, manipulation of facts, Afghanistan corruption and using taxpayer's dollars to bail out an Afghan bank. He also gets into the upcoming election and explains how good politicians get co-opted.

constitution day

This article first appeared as "An Excellent Project for All" by John F. McManus in the JBS Bulletin, July 2010.

In 2004, Congress enacted legislation requiring all publicly funded educational institutions to provide students with instruction about the U.S. Constitution. The law (Public Law 108-447) specified that it should be given on September 17, the date of the completion of the Constitution in 1787.

altThis article originally appeared on September 1, 2010 at The New American website.

Congressman Lawrence McDonald had served as a medical doctor, an officer in the U.S. Navy, a U.S. Representative from Georgia, and the second leader of The John Birch Society before being invited (along with several other members of Congress) to attend a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the signing of the United States–South Korea Mutual Defense Treaty in Seoul. McDonald was aboard Korean Air Lines flight 007 enroute to the event when the plane was shot down by a Soviet fighter jet — 27 years ago — on September 1, 1983. Although history has all but forgotten Larry McDonald and the sacrifice he made for this country and freedom, we here at The New American have not forgotten and will never forget.

altArt Thompson, JBS CEO, shares his views on the news for the week and dives into the controversy surrounding Iran and its nuclear reactors and its new rockets. He discusses the showmanship of foreign policy and the motivations of others that don’t have the best interests of the U.S. in mind. He also ponders the question of why intrusive government services aren’t being cut in these hard economic times.

The Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution reads:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

This Amendment, one of the most important in the Bill of Rights, has for generations served to protect the states and the people from overzealous federal encroachment. Recent decades, however, have seen federal power grow to enormous proportions. As a result, all across America states have been working to reassert their rights and the rights of their citizens under the Tenth Amendment.

The John Birch Society believes strongly in the principles of federalism built into the Constitution by the Founding Fathers and is working to support the movement to reassert the importance of the entire Bill of Rights, including the Tenth Amendment.

To find details regarding the status of Tenth Amendment initiatives we are supporting in the various states, as well as to find other information about the movement in those states in general, click on the markers on the map above.
