In an audacious display, the October 13, 2013, Dallas Morning News published a left-wing hit-piece on The John Birch Society (JBS) regarding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The John Birch Society is headquartered in Appleton, Wis. at 770 N. Westhill Blvd, Appleton, WI 54914. Staff here handles the daily operations of the organization. Two buildings house the staff. Members are locally organized into small chapters (usually less than 20 people). Each chapter has a volunteer leader. Chapters are then organized into sections (a minimum of 3 chapters). Each section has a Volunteer Section Leader.
The mission of The John Birch Society is to bring about less government, more responsibility, and — with God's help — a better world by providing leadership, education, and organized volunteer action in accordance with moral and Constitutional principles. This means we focus on an individual level of having more responsibility to govern ourselves in our daily lives as opposed to being governed. This responsibility is carried through all aspects of life, including family, business, social, church, and community. We advocate looking to the Ten Commandments for a moral guide and to the founding documents of America’s founders that describe the proper role and structure of government.
