New Book!

Recommended Posts


In January 2018, NARA released a new summary of all the remaining JFK documents that had not (up to that time) been fully released. (However, many were previously released with some redactions and others were released this week).

That January summary totals 791 pages.

The portion which summarizes FBI documents is 229 pages.  Each remaining FBI file number and each serial number is shown along with the total number of pages in each document.

I spent several hours looking up the most commonly-referenced FBI file numbers on the NARA summary and I can now report that:

(1)  There are no documents pertaining to Edwin Walker, Harry Dean, or the John Birch Society.  Nor are there any documents about the primary "plot" characters discussed by Dr. Caufield in his book.  [I searched every applicable FBI HQ and field office file number that might have produced some kind of hit.]

(2)  Many of the remaining documents are in the 92-series of FBI files.  The 92-series refers to "racketeering enterprise investigations".  Apparently, these docs are predominantly about Mob-connected individuals.  For example, one series of documents pertained to John Roselli.

(3)   I focused my attention upon the FBI file numbers which had the most listings -- and, often, they had the most pages too.  The subject of every one of the 104 FBI file numbers I researched was identifiable by searching it online.  Most of the time, the Mary Ferrell website produced a "hit" which identified each file subject.  In other cases, I saw a PDF copy of a document which NARA uploaded during the past year.


IT IS time for Paul to admit there is nothing to substantiate his (or Harry Dean's) "JBS plot" supposition.

For those who are interested, I have recently revised and expanded my "Right-Wing Archives" webpage at the following link:


I was able to find a lot of new listings that pertain to individuals and organizations discussed in Dr. Caufield's book.  The webpage (link above) includes annotated notes at the bottom for some of the more significant listings and there is also a PDF version at the bottom of the webpage.

In addition, a friend of mine (Archie Henderson) is currently reviewing the last volume of his 3000-page publication entitled:  "Conservatism, the Right Wing, and the Far Right: A Guide To Archives" (4 volumes) -- and it is scheduled to be published soon.  There is a link below which describes his work.

New Batch of FBI Files Uploaded To Internet Archive

For those who might be interested, I uploaded the following FBI files to Internet Archive today.  Many of these files contain material about people and organizations which are central to Dr. Caufield's narrative.  The next group of files should be available in September.

New article regarding Edwin Walker and Billy James Hargis "Midnight Ride" tour. 

[Full disclosure:  I provided some minor research assistance to one of the authors of this article]:


ALSO:   The former President of the John Birch Society (John F. McManus) has now finished his history of the JBS.  The book is available here:

Dr. Caufield discusses the Constitution Party in about 50 pages of his book.  In addition, a major focus by Dr. Caufield pertains to many of the persons connected to that Party such as Joseph A. Milteer, William Potter Gale, Pedro del Valle, Kenneth Goff, and Mary Davison.

Today, after waiting three years, the FBI has released 4 files on Constitution Party -- which I have just uploaded into my Internet Archive webpage (link below).  It will probably take another couple hours for the files to finish uploading due to their size.


The FBI HQ file on Constitution Party (HQ 105-124952) is 182pp and covers the period from October 1963 thru May 1966.    However, the FBI sent me a previously-processed version of this file which did NOT apply the death records which I sent to the FBI.  Consequently, many names mentioned in those HQ file documents are redacted but the other files on Constitution Party which I uploaded today (Baltimore, Los Angeles and Philadelphia) have many less redactions.

Baltimore 105-1183 (103pp) covers the period from August 1954 to January 1968
Los Angeles 105-2151 (174pp) covers the period from July 1954 to December 1963
Philadelphia 105-1749 (48pp) covers the period from December 1954 to January 1964
I have begun a GoFundMe campaign to assist the Center for Right Wing Studies at University of California with preserving my paper FBI files (i.e. the Center is converting my paper files into PDF files which I then add to Internet Archive website so that they can be shared online with everyone--at no cost).  
As of today, more than one million people have accessed my FBI file collection which is online at Internet Archive.
You may read all the details at the link below.  If you have any questions, I will be very happy to answer them.
During the past couple years, I have received literally dozens of emails from scholars, journalists, students, authors, and even from many relatives of individuals who were active in some organization 40 or 50 or 60 years ago.  All of these folks have seen some reference online to my FBI files collection -- and they asked for my help.
I've been able to assist about 65% of these folks but, sometimes, the FBI records which are the subject of their inquiry are not currently among the paper FBI files in my collection which are scheduled to be scanned by a student at UC-Berkeley's Center for Right Wing Studies.  
That is why I created a GoFundMe page -- in the hope that enough additional funds can be raised to finish this project.
There is one additional wrinkle concerning FBI files--especially older ones.  
The FBI has been working at warp-speed to transfer many files to NARA.  The problem with that is....
(a) NARA often takes 2-3 years to process a request and 
(b) even more discouraging -- NARA currently charges 80 cents per page to provide copies of documents (even when they scan paper documents into PDF files on a CD or DVD).  That often means that just one medium or large FBI file from NARA will cost $1000 or $2000 or more to obtain.  
Obviously, that makes historical research into FBI files virtually impossible for almost everyone.
I would therefore very much appreciate your support for saving the FBI files I have obtained over the past 37 years.   
Please forward this email to anyone whom you think would also be interested in saving our history.
Your support would mean a lot to me. Thank you so much!

Hi everyone:
I just finished uploading the following FBI files and serials to my Internet Archive webpage at:   https://archive.org/details/@ernie1241 
Another batch of FBI files should be available by late December or early January.
If you would like to help the University of California-Berkeley, Center for Right Wing Studies continue this project which converts my collection of paper FBI files into PDF files which I then can share online, please see my GoFundMe webpage here:   
There are still hundreds of FBI files to save---including many which no longer exist and I was the only person to request and receive them.

I recently created two PDF files which combine all of the individual chapters which I have posted online that comprise my “Report on the John Birch Society”. 

My Report is based primarily upon data appearing in FBI investigative files along with material I discovered in Special Collections which are archived at various colleges and universities or in state historical societies.

(1)    The first PDF file is now uploaded into my Internet Archive website at the link appearing below. This is a 291-page file which is a combination of all 12 textual chapters of my Report on the John Birch Society -- updated through February 2019.


(2)    The second PDF file is a 125-page file which combines 5 webpages which I created to present an annotated "Documentary History of the John Birch Society".  Most of the documents which I originally posted on these five webpages are not available publicly elsewhere. The PDF version is on Internet Archive at the following link:


The combination of my JBS textual report (291 pages) plus my Documentary History file (125 pages) represents a total of 416 pages that currently comprises my JBS Report.  This Report has been researched and written over a period of more than three decades.

Subsequent revisions to my JBS Report will appear online on the original webpages that I created. The URL links to each chapter of my JBS Report as well links to other reports I have written are available on my Research Homepage here:   https://sites.google.com/site/ernie124102/home

PDF files for all my other online Reports will be uploaded onto my Internet Archive webpage in the future.

David:  I added few acronyms since 2015 without changing the revision date at the top of the webpage.  I have also come across new acronyms as I have reviewed my collection of FBI files but I've been too lazy to revise that webpage---primarily because I did not think there was much interest.  Yes, there are many items that have been discarded since the 1960's-1970s.
