A Reflection from the CEO
By William S.
The situation at the Capitol building in DC, as well as the
breaching at the Texas and Georgia capitol buildings, will not
result in anything positive for patriots. Violence is not an
This highlights why our active work in creating educated
electorates is so important. As JBS Founder Mr. Robert Welch
said, “Education without action results in frustration.”
We must be careful to not make assumptions until we know
exactly what has happened.
Early reports from some on the ground in DC are suggesting
agent provocateurs broke into the buildings, attacked police,
and the crowd entered the building once barriers were
History has shown us that many times things are not as they
seem. We could say so much more about motive, false flags,
etc., but again, we don't know.
What we do know is how this will be used against us. Calls are
already being made from Speaker Pelosi and other Democrats in
Congress for Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment
to get President Trump out or face impeachment a second time.
We know that the Left does not let a crisis go to waste. With
a Democratic House, Senate, and Presidential administration,
the very scope of our Republic will come under attack once
again, picking up where President Obama and Vice President
Biden left off.
Stopping the radical agenda in Congress will not be easy, but
the effort to implement it through the states is where we can
gain some real traction. Remember, the size and scope of the
American government has been under attack since just after the
country was founded. That battle continues, and our adversary
never rests. Our organization cannot either.
If you’ve ever been up before dawn, especially if you’re a
hunter sitting in your stand 30 minutes or more before
sunrise, then you know it’s usually darkest and coldest just
before the light.
For many JBS members, President Donald Trump was a breath of
fresh air. For the most part, he did not travel the same
globalist path as previous presidents. The constant attacks
from globalists against him seemed to prove the point,
although he was far from a perfect constitutional president
(have we ever had one?). He did implement the next step to the
North American Union, the USMCA, as well as signed bills that
ballooned the deficit and the debt.
Yet, many ties were cut with the United Nations, economic
balance finally swung the right way—reviving American
manufacturing, pre-COVID unemployment was at a record low, and
retirement accounts were enjoying large returns. Plus, the
American military was less engaged in wars than ever before in
The attacks on President Trump, along with the crackdown of
government tyranny, revealed to millions of freedom-loving
Americans (regardless of political affiliation) the
conspiratorial agenda that JBS has exposed and warned about
for 60+ years.
Many Americans are depressed and feel like they have been
punched in the gut.
But folks, this is the time when your involvement is so very
critical. Our motto at The John Birch Society is “Less
government, more responsibility, and – with God’s help – a
better world.” Not only is it our motto, it’s our mission.
We tend to largely focus on the first two parts of it, but
it’s times like this that our focus needs to be on the last
part. With God’s help — a better world.
God is not worried about the outcome of this election nor
about what to do next. We need to realize that He made each
of us for just such a time. He placed each of us here at this
moment. All according to His plan, not ours.
The fight to deflect the coming onslaught of unconstitutional
legislation begins today. We’ve been through this before. We
know what to expect. And we know what constitutional tools we
can use to stop it or at least lessen its effects.
Our Constitution still stands. Our state constitutions still
stand. Election fraud occurred, and we begin by cleaning up
that mess first. The battleground states need to be our first
priority. We can fix this.
Restoring election integrity allows each American to get their
vote back. The bulk of the work is done by focusing on local
and state legislators. Not by Congress.
Now that all of the state legislatures will be in session, we
need to generate the pressure needed to make election reform
the top priority. This means mainly rolling back much of the
damage that was created through the bureaucrats, judiciary,
and tyrannical governors over the last year. We are currently
developing tools for you to use and will have them rolled out
Stopping federal tyranny also involves going through local and
state legislators. The Founding Fathers gave us a tool called
nullification that they said legislators are duty-bound to use
when a usurpation of power occurs. A usurpation occurs each
time Congress passes legislation outside of its constitutional
In fact, this is the ONLY tool that has lifted government
tyranny in many locales and states across this nation during
the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the awakening in America, your neighbors, your church
friends, your community organization friends, and many
influential business owners in your area are now open to the
JBS solution of righting the Republic.
The election may be over, but the fight that began shortly
after this country was founded, continues to be fought. The
question isn’t, “What will Trump do now?” Rather, it’s, “What
will you do now?”
For us, it’s a matter of action. Don’t take yourself out of
this fight, but recommit to less government, more
responsibility, and with God’s help a better world.
Tools for our newest Restore Election Integrity campaign are
in the works and will be out soon. Of course, nullification
tools are immediately available under our
Rein in Big Government With Article VI, Not V campaign
(see our action pack for available tools, including booklets,
DVDs, slim jims, and reprints).
Plus, think about scheduling workshops for the Constitution is
the Solution. You can purchase these from our
online store or
and resources for free.
More detailed instructions are being assembled for restoring
election integrity, but the plan is based on a series of
suggested changes for each state (you’ll have to ascertain
which fits your state best). These include the following:
Reinstate paper ballots and optical scan vote counting
Restoring transparency in the vote process and counting
Reinstate precincts for casting ballots
Holding firm on an Election Day, not week or month
Abolishing certain forms of electronic voting
Repeal laws allowing unattended ballot boxes, no-excuse
absentee balloting, early voting, same-day voter registration
or Internet registration
Not allowing government employees to run the polls
Solutions to our electoral problems are not found in expensive
new technologies that can’t be monitored by the public, but
rather in restoring the use of tried-and-true methods of the
We must also keep a close watch on new bills in Congress and
in state legislatures that serve only to take a bad situation
and make things worse. When considering the reforms, ask
yourself, “Will it transfer power from the voters to those who
run the elections or will it help return the power of the
ballot box back to the voters where it belongs?” The future of
our republic needs accurate, honest, and open elections.
There has never been a time in history that has so badly
needed The John Birch Society. Let’s clean up this mess and
not only restore our freedom, liberties, and independence, but
also defend them against what will surely be coming.
Stay involved and don’t miss our updates. Sign up for our
Your involvement is needed now more than ever. With your
help, we will fix this.
May God bless our efforts and watch over us.
Thank you in advance for your tireless efforts!
