    The best, absolute best and a must have book regarding one of the most successful Communist plots ever devised and executed.

    You know the fictional narrative: Joe McCarthy was a drunk, power-hungry liar who used his House UnAmerican Activities Committee (Yeah, why did we even have a HUAC BEFORE Joe was elected?) to destroy so many poor innocents including Zero Mostel.

    The truth? You'll want to beat the shit out of ever history teacher you ever had for lying to your face.

    Communists in the US Government (oh, we were and are swamped with them!) covered for Stalin's mass execution of Polish officers at Katyn Forest, handed Yugoslavia to Communist Tito and handed China to Mao....and that only 90 pages in!

    Don't let Progressive lies go unchecked! Educate Yourself!

    We had a HUAC because we had a Communist problem starting with the New Deal and even Democrats cared (before their Party became a wholly owned subsidiary of Moscow)

    Buy this book! Own it! Refer to it frequently!

    Did you know that genuine Communist spies confirmed by Venona and other sources were prominent at the State Department, Treasury and on FDR's senior staff?

    Do you know why this matters?

    Can you imagine how the world might be different had FDR NOT pursued a policy of strangling Japan economically prior to Pearl Harbor as he was advised by Lauchin Currie? Japan and Russia fought a bitter war at the turn of the century with the Japanese clearly coming out on top, destroying fully 2/3 of the Russian Navy and denying them their access to the Pacific. Russia did not want to fight the Japanese, they wanted the Japanese to fight the USA, they directed their agents to have the USA start taking these actions against the Japanese.

    Did you know they advised FDR to back Mao because he was "Progressive" while they outright lied about the Chiang Kai Shek? That's why ChiComs run China.

    That's why it matters

    Sounds like an interest read, Cru.

    I'll have to look it up in the local library.

    I agree with you, this is by far the most important McCarthy book to date.

    As I'm sure you know (as Evans mentions on page 9), HUAC was a committee of the House of Representatives. McCarthy never served on HUAC, because McCarthy never served in the House. McCarthy served in the Senate, where he was chairman of the Committee on Government Operations, and of its Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. The PSI could investigate only government operations, hence its hearings were limited to Communist penetration of the Federal government and concomitant policy subversion. The PSI (unlike HUAC) could not investigate the Communist penetration of non-government areas, such as Hollywood, thus had nothing to do with HUAC's Hollywood hearings, or the ensuing studio blacklists, which snared Zero Mostel. In addition, those HUAC hearings took place in 1947; McCarthy didn't even enter the fray until 1950.

    Incidentally, HUAC grew out of a 1934 House resolution calling for a special committee to investigate "un-American activities." That resolution was introduced by Congressman Samuel Dickstein (D-NY), a Soviet agent code-named "Crook." Under the pretext of investigating suspected "fascists," he used the committee in the 1930s to launch "witch-hunts" against anti-Communist U.S. businessmen, Soviet emigres and Trotskyites (after they were identified by Stalin as "objectively fascist"). These witch-hunts had the enthusiastic support of the CPUSA.

    Everything I've read or heard from those who were involved with the HUAC hearings leads me to think that McCarthy was a nasty, hateful, lying, power-hungry drunk.

    That leads me to want to read what this apologist for McCarthy has to say.

    I owe no alligance to anything but the pursuit of the truth.

    Even if the truth I find conflicts with what I previously thought was the truth.

    Amazing, no?

    And even after Venona exposes so many prominent Government officials as genuine Communist agents and assets we get people clinging desperately to the lies about McCarthy.

    If anything, McCarthy vastly understated and underestimated the penetration, the damage the wrought and the extent to which the US government was directed to do Moscow bidding

    Can you give us a list of all the people McCarthy claimed were Soviet agents working in the government, please?

    And also a list of those who he exposed as Soviet agents that history has proven to actually BE Soviet agents?

    That would be very helpful for us to understand just how effective the man was in exposing Soviets, and also helpful for us to understand how many innocent people whose lives were ruined by him.

    A simple list will do, Cru.

    A list that shows all the people he accused of being Soviet agents including notations showing us which of those truly were agents.

    Think you can do that for us?

    I'd appreciate it.

    That makes me question the whole book right there.
