#828: Kelly Khuri

Kelly Khuri is the founder of the Clark County Tea Party Patriots, and as you’d expect a rather extreme wingnut. She’s OK with being called “extreme”, though: “Some people say I’m extreme, but they said the John Birch Society was extreme, too.” Indeed they did. Partially because the John Birch Society declared President Eisenhower to be a communist infiltrator and secret member of the American Communist Party.

She is also a global warming denialist, diligently refuting mountains of scientifically produced evidence by candid analyses: “This so-called climate science is just ridiculous,” pointing out that “I think it’s all cyclical.” And what more evidence could you possibly need when you’re the founder of the Clark County Tea Party Patriots? Take that, you scientists.

Diagnosis: Wingnut extremist. Her individual influence is probably limited, but she’s not alone.



  2. Fact: Originally detailing some of Pres. Eisenhower's history in a 1954 letter sent privately to a few friends, Mr. Welch's research grew over several years into a full-length book entitled The Politician (1963). Once the book was published, its very existence was ignored while critics continued to dwell on only one of several possible conclusions offered by Mr. Welch.

    The book provides 300 pages and 150 pages of footnotes and documentation, including covering one of Mr. Eisenhower's most immoral and despicable acts of authorizing "Operation Keelhaul"; which used American soldiers to repatriate anti-communist Poles to their certain death or torture. Read the book for yourself and discover what Mr. Welch did say and learn the role played by Mr. Eisenhower over his many years as one of our nation's military and political leaders.

    1. The length of a source is not a testament of its validity.
