    Claire Conner, Author of "Wrapped in the Flag"

    in Politics

    Join your host Wes Blackman as he welcomes Claire Conner to the High Noon in Lake Worth studios.


    Claire was twelve years old when her parents dove into the world of paranoid politics, a world dominated by the John Birch Society, an anti-Communist, anti-federal government movement.


    Her parents were the first two Birch members in the city of Chicago. Her father, Stillwell J. Conner, became a National Council member and remained in top leadership for thirty-two years. Her mother was a partner in all things Birch.


    At first, eager to gain the approval of her parents, Claire embraced everything they embraced. As she matured, however, she began to disagree. At first, it was just a whisper here and a tiny “no” there, but every little rebellion made her stronger.


    The final break from her parents caused tremendous upheaval, leaving a rift that never healed.


    “Extremism broke my family,” Claire says. “I don’t want it to break my country.”


    In her new book Wrapped in the Flag, Claire introduces us to the extreme ideas of a powerful political fringe group dispensing radical solutions to America’s problems. Moving seamlessly between memoir and history, humor and pain, past and present, Wrapped in the Flag serves up keen insight into the impact of extremism on one woman, her family and, if unchecked, on our country.


    Claire Conner holds a degree in English with honors from the University of Dallas and a graduate degree from the University of Wisconsin. She lives in Dunedin, Florida. She speaks widely on the John Birch Society and the impact of the radical Right.   


    I am reading her book this week in preparation for the show.

    Claire Conner Mork, Author of "Wrapped in the Flag"

    in Politics Progressive

    Our modern American society is so fractured with violent rhetoric & periodic violent actions against each other.  Many of the older generations remember a time when compromise was not such a dirty word of virtual political surrender to the other side.  Times were more civil decades ago...or were they?

    Our guest for Sunday, June 29 is Claire Connner Mork, who wrote the sensational and critically acclaimed book, "Wrapped in the Flag: A Personal History of America's Radical Right."

    The truth is history really does repeat itself.  Claire grew up in a household run by two Chicago area organizers of the radically conservative group The John Birch Society.  

    They filtered her world view with their own and checked her textbooks to make sure no liberal bias entered her young & powerfully developing mind.  So, in the atmosphere of Cold War Joe McCarthy Communist witch hunts, young Claire Conner found herself at a "safe conservative" school in Dallas, Texas in November of 1963.

    The roots of what is happening today can be traced to the history that Ms. Conner Mork experienced firsthand.  I'm intrigued, aren't you?  

    We'll also discuss current events and recent relevant topics.  Call (646) 478-3349 to listen (please mute your phone) or talk (please press 1 to be placed in the queue to speak with our guest and/or us).

    Let's get the conversation going...

    S05/E11: Claire Conner Author of Wrapped In The Flag (re:The John Birch Society)

    in Politics Progressive

    She is a woman that used her pen to dispell myths and untruths.


    She spoke the truth based on her life's experiences, her voice for kindness and compassion, her hands for charity and her heart for love. For those who don't like her, like the ultra right wing John Birch Society, she forgives but not forget.


    She is a master at what she does. A Picasso with her pen, she brings Truth to Power and gives sight to those blinded by the smoke and mirror that passes off as journalism in modern day America. As Reggae King Bob Marley rightly said, "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds...". With her book, "Wrapped in the Flag: A Personal History of America's Radical Right", she brings a sinister secret society to light and calls them out for who they really are: extreme right wing "Christian", hateful, bigoted, xenophobic, homophobic, sick and twisted. She writes with clarity, honesty and passion out of the deep love she has for her country. The Kirkus Review and the Tampa Bay Times both named her book #1 "Best of 2013".


    Kitchen Politics 123 Radio Show with Dave & Lori is pleased to welcome a dedicated mother, loyal wife, a devoted daughter, a cool sister to her siblings and a true friend to all those who know her personally. She's one of the best writers we've seen in 21st Century America. We're glad to welcome author extrodinaire Claire Conner!

    How To Draw Closer To Jesus And Do What He Does Daily

    in Christianity

    The truth is closr than you think. The LORD Jesus desires to have a deep intimate relationship with you where you can both walk hand in hand and know all the favor in creation available to use for the greater good of the Kingdom of God here on earth. Peace and joy wrapped in love is available to you confidence in every situation no matter what you are facing is also your if you desire to have it. Prayer and fellowship with Jesus is the most epic reality this world has ever known or will know. Most people go through life so stuck in whatever pursuit they are chasing they dont take the time to develop a real relationship with Jesus. Many people claim to know Him and walk with Him however the evidence to back that up often time is lacking. Not that they mean evil it's just a short siding of sorts to the one claiming and to others because they see the wrong Jesus not the right one and then get a bad taste in their mouth because a so called Christian was a hypocrite and did the very things they were saying others shouldnt so its all to often happening in the world. 


    When it comes to signs and wonders and miracles and the works Jesus does they are alive and well today to all who are willing to go to the cross, die to self, be born again and die to the old ways, sinful and dead anyways.


    The master Key to a strong relationship with Jesus will be discussed on tonights show and helpful hints of growing in the LORD daily.

    WELCOME TO THE USA BEBE NETANYAHU. TELL US WHAT OBAMA IS UP TO.

    in Politics Conservative

    I am sure Israel knows what Obama is really up to in the take down of the USA and the destruction of the Chosen people, How any American of Jewish heritage can stand by and watch a communist party destroy the very fabric of Israel and continue to donate to it's destruction by supporting an Islamo commo. Where is the gain as the anti semetism thermometer rises?


    You know there is a percentage of people who hide their hatred for a strong adversary until that adversary is weakened. Then they show their true colors as they come in for the kill. A handful of moslems have hijacked an entire religion. The stronger they get the bigger the handful gets.


    I do not trust Boehner nor McConnell but Boehner has smidgened Obama Bin Laden with this invitation to Netanyahu. We all remember the death of his brother in the raid on Entebe when mighty nations trembled afraid to do the right thing. Once again little Israel taught how to do the right thing.  When Obama's jihadists in government warn Iran that Israel has made a refueling arrangement for their jets with Azerbaijan you know the last country to get the word Israeli planes are headed towards Iran nuke sites will be us. The American people don't trust this communist junta why would anybody else?  


    To add insult to injury as if Netanyahu was the Queen of England. Obama Jim Crowed this prime minister insisting he leave by the back door going past the garbage. This anti American president like to flip the bird at his enemies. That is why he made combat trained Marines hold his umbrella while his staff laughed behind French doors.We all remember his crotch salute to the American flag. This guy was vetted by the communist party and selected for the final take down USA.


    SO BEBE BABY open our eyes to this imposters betrayal of your country and mine. When you come update us on what Hanoi John kerry is still doing to us again.
