The John Birch Society

obama state of unionUPDATE, June 24: House passed H.R. 5175 by 219-206 today. Senate still must vote. As you might be already aware, House Speaker Pelosi had to pull the DISCLOSE Act, H.R. 5175, from a scheduled vote last Friday, when widespread outrage erupted over a special exemption for the NRA in exchange for not opposing the bill. Well, the bill is still alive and well with a vote now scheduled in the House for tomorrow, June 24. The Senate leadership has already promised Pelosi that if the House passes the bill, then the Senate will vote on it in time for it to take effect for the elections this fall.

Start TreatyOn April 8, 2010, in Prague, President Barack Obama and Russian President Dimitry Medvedev signed the New START Treaty. It must be ratified by 67 U.S. senators, and the Russian Parliament, of course, in order to take effect. The Obama Administration and top brass in the military are in favor of quick ratification.

Ron PaulLast night Ron Paul made an urgent appeal via a 2 1/2 minute video (see below) for immediate help in contacting senators to reject Bernie Sanders' new, watered-down Fed transparency amendment and to support an amendment with the original "Audit the Fed" language of H.R. 1207 and S. 604. A vote on Sanders' amendment to S. 3217 (the financial services overhaul bill) is expected on Tuesday, May 11. (For results of the votes on May 11, read "Senate Caves to Fed Pressure, Waters Down Audit.")

 

altThe following article, "John Birch: In the Story of One American, the Ordeal of His Age," by Patricia Hurley originally appeared in the June 16, 1986 issue of The New American magazine. We are posting this article today in memory of John Birch, namesake of The John Birch Society, who was killed in China on this day 65 years ago.

In 1945, ten days after the end of World War II, a young American soldier was brutally murdered in a deliberate attack by Chinese Communists.

After serving with distinction as a U.S. Army officer in China during World War II, Captain John Birch was murdered by Chinese communist forces 65 years ago on August 25, 1945.  The war had ended only ten days earlier.

altIt happened just in time, the salmonella egg outbreak and recall, that is. Remarkably so, in fact, to help boost the chances of Senate Bill 510's passing. The Food Safety Modernization Act, whose companion bill H.R. 2749 already passed in the House, was facing quite the uphill battle. But not any more; a vote is now highly likely with approval possible if not probable.

“To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 and other laws to enhance the security and resiliency of the cyber and communications infrastructure of the United States.” These are the words used to describe the latest cybersecurity bill, S. 3480  "Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010," introduced on June 10 and cosponsored by Senators Susan Collins (R-Maine), Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Tom Carper (D-Del.).

There’s a lot of confusion occurring over what’s being nullified by the “Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act” legislation that’s been introduced in over 30 states, and already enacted into law in Virginia, Idaho, Arizona, Georgia, Missouri, and Louisiana. This legislation has been based on model legislation developed by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) back in December 2008, over a year before ObamaCare finally became law.

AmericanismThis article was originally published in the January 9, 1995 issue of The Birch Log.

There has to be a definition of Americanism somewhere. Yet it is quite obvious that many Americans would be hard-pressed to come up with one. A housewife might offer that it is a combination of patriotism and love of tradition. That's good, but not very specific.

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.
