    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!

    In February 2014, Aspen socialite Nancy Pfister was murdered in her own home—brutally bludgeoned, wrapped in a sheet, and stuffed inside a locked closet. 
    Fewer than twelve hours after her body was found and without any evidence, police decided a married couple from Denver had killed her. Within a few days, they arrested and charged Nancy Styler, a friend of Pfister’s who’d had a falling out with her after a business deal went sour, and Dr. Trey Styler, Nancy’s disabled husband, who recently lost the family home, his medical practice, and any hope of a peaceful retirement for himself and his wife. Eleven days later, police also arrested and charged Kathy Carpenter, Pfister’s underpaid and overworked personal assistant and closest friend.
    Months later, Trey Styler, who was slowly losing his grip on reality as he battled with mental illness, confessed to the crime. Rampant speculation spread about whether he was involved at all—or if his confession was that of a man on his deathbed—because a medical condition appeared to have left him barely able to walk, much less carry out such a heinous crime.  And, in the only interview before his death, Trey gives his account of that fateful day.
    New York Times bestselling author Daleen Berry covers this compelling story from the inside, following the Stylers from their fairy-tale life in Denver to the morning of their simultaneous arrest to Nancy’s release from jail and her attempts to rebuild her shattered life.

    Working Through Insecurities When You Start Dating Again & FREE PSYCHIC READINGS

    in Spirituality

    This is going to be such an eye awakening episode for so many people who start dating again.  We are hypersensitive and looking for every red flag when we first start dating someone.  You must remember that the other person may be doing this as well.  You can meet your kindred spirit and not even know it right away.  This is your twin flame.  However, when you bring junk with you from a past relationship you can sabotage a relationship with your kindred spirit.  Both of you will be more cautious.  So, someone from the past is still haunting you from moving on.  Let it go or you will destroy any possibilities of a relationship with your kindred spirit.  It's not like in the movies when you see a couple having these sparks and this passionate relationship when they first meet.  I want to also discuss taking back your power which someone has taken from you.

    I will also discuss taking back your power to leave a toxic relationship.  Yes, you can do it! I don't discuss anything I haven't been through personally.
