    I am not particularly impressed with protestations that the Fourth Estate is going to solve our Donald Trump problem by speaking truth to power, exposing his low, dishonest, and inflammatory rhetoric, and the filthy bigotry in which he traffics. There’s a lot of people—a lot of voters—down in the sewer with Donald Trump. Apparently the...
  • This is a fascinating article, but not for the reasons Peter Lee thought it would be. His motivation is in seeking to dispatch the blond beast he hates, Donald Trump. So, he revisits the case of Tailgunner Joe, and suggests to powerful Trump-haters, ‘Here’s your playbook.’

    It’s fascinating, thanks to Lee’s recounting of Ike’s alleged role and motivation, in destroying McCarthy. Lee thinks that Ike’s alleged involvement speaks well for the conspiracy, rather than speaking ill for Ike.

    I’ll take Lee’s theory under advisement. However, I find his parallel of Trump-McCarthy unwittingly comical. When I hear, ‘Trump is another McCarthy,’ my heart sings! Both men are American heroes of the first order. Flawed, to be sure, but the only heroes that seem flawless are the ones about whom we know very little.

    As for conspiracies against Trump, at the time of this article’s publication, there had already been so many conspiracies against him, within the Democrat Party (including its media division) and the GOP (including ITS media division), that the conspirators were tripping over each other!

    Even if Mr. Lee obviously hates McCarthy, he comes up here with no more than with what Murrow came up: that McCarthy lied over the ACLU as a "proscribed Communist organization".

    Now, i don't know what exactly he (or Murrow or McCarthy) meant with "proscribed". As for the ACLU, the "1943 California Senate Fact-Finding Committee on Un-American Activities reported that the ACLU “may be definitely classed as a communist front.” The committee added that “at least 90 percent of its [the ACLU’s] efforts are expended on behalf of communists who come into conflict with the law.” That 90-percent figure was consistent with a major report produced by Congress a decade earlier, January 17, 1931." (Paul Kegan, http://www.westernjournalism.com/the-aclus-communist-atheist-roots/)

    Roger Baldwin, ACLU founder and one of those honest people who really converted from Communism, found it necessary to install into the ACLU a kind of personal declaration that the member was no Communist. Perhaps he knew more about the matter than Murrow or Lee?)

    (N.B. I am grateful to Mr. Lee who this way got me knowing about Paul Kegan and his book "Dupes" about US Americans infatuated with the Soviet system and wanting to install it in the US, from sources in Russian archives.)

    Proscribed may be viewed as simply a figure of speech

    In McCarthy’s eyes and in the anti communist spirit a communist ACLU is certainly proscribed.

    The seizing on that point merely a technical argument over semantics to deflect from the charge of communism

    Guilty of what? Of being communists. Which isn't a crime.

    And my question is serious. You don't support someone politically distant. {But if you're a principled person, you may well defend someone against antidemocratic attacks who is politically distant.)

    And my question is serious

    Mine too. Can a principled person be a communist?

    "Because we are Race Realists. We notice all the articles he writes on China. You could even get the idea he’s *fixated* on China. Chinese-sounding last name, plus fixation on China, it’s a smart bet he’s Chinese. See, us Race Realists know how to bet. We go around doing that pesky “noticing” stuff, and draw really good inferences as a result."


    Watch the video. Does he look Chinese to you? http://therealnews.com/t2/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=31&Itemid=74&jumival=12490


    Some of you are either dumb or lazy or both.

    Don’t know or care whether Lee is Oriental, Occidental or a visiting Martian with eyeballs on stalks.

    But anybody playing Historian with McCarthy who leaves Venona out of the discussion is either a fraud or a propagandist.

    He was targeting communists in sensitive areas of government at a time when we were at war with communism. You know, places like the signalcorp in the military. Seems reasonable to me.

    I'm with you about the MIC/Surveillance/Warfare State.
    Notwithstanding, "red scare" wasn't a simple product of manipulations ("frighten the public"), it was grounded in experience. It was a consequence of "red rise" in the Roosevelt Administration. The Roosevelt Reds had slickly tried to undermine the American tradition - civil liberties, pluralism and democratic control - and they had made good use of intimidation aganst their critics, above all during war time. So there had to be a repercussion, and the huge wave of so-called "McCarthyism" (for most of which McCarthy was not personally responsible) was just this inevitable popular repercussion against the dominance of the Roosevelt Reds.

  • One of the problems which will get Peter Lee into trouble again and again: his lack of openness and his preference for disguise.

    For example, this article is disguised as political expertise. But as such it would be worthless: we all have known before that the Trump may be backstabbed by his party, we wouldn’t need the McCarthy parallel at all.

    So we inevitably ask us what Lee wants to hide behind a smokescreen of political expertise, and the most probable answer is: spite.

    By the way, Eisenhower and Nixon didn’t want to kill McCarthy politically. They wanted him to retreat into an honourable position as an elder statesman. Which, alas, they failed because of his early death.

    After his death, McCarthy was mostly needed as a scapegoat. For example, there was a gap between the blacklisted Jewish Hollywood screenplay writers and the Jewish Hollywood Czars who had blacklisted them, and when bot groups reunited is was reasonable to reunite under the premise that the really guilty person was Irish Catholic McCarthy.

    We can argue about McCarthy but a far more important pair of manipulators were Allen and Foster Dulles. They architected (coalesced) out of the agencies set up to fight WW2 the MIC/Surveillance/Warfare State that is spreading chaos, death and destruction across the world.

    McCarthy was just the visual tip to frighten the public. The Republicans and Democrats each still play their part in the 'scare the public' campaign; the former use a harder touch, the latter a softer touch.

So there had to be a repercussion, and the huge wave of so-called “McCarthyism” (for most of which McCarthy was not personally responsible) was just this inevitable popular repercussion against the dominance of the Roosevelt Reds.

    Joe Mc Carthy was proved right about everything. A large Jewish attack, Walter Lippmann, Walter Winchell (with crime connections) and the host of jewish shock troops which included Carr, an accomplice of Drew Pearson (not Jewish).

    Never mind the FDR cabal of jews. ( I came up in a pro-communist family and it was surrounded by jews. "The Investigator" was a satire done by the commies on McCarthy. It was funny and well done, at least for an 11 year old sensibility. Up There, as opposed to Down There..another jewish attack on Christianity....with The Investigator sending the innocents Down There of course.

    I knew one of the goy commies who did work in the State Dept., Beverstock by name whom we called Bev. He may have been ultimately purged from State by the McCarthy forces. I also knew a couple communist academics who were run out of the U. of Washington by the Canwell Committee, a state of Washington little HUAC.

    Trump = McCarthy? A truly silly premise for a hit piece on Trump.
     
    Absolutely correct. This article appeals to emotion rather than logic, an emotion that overtakes journalists and those on the left who are convinced that outspoken politicians who aren't social justice warriors are all part of some Nazi cabal...or something. I actually can't quite figure it out, to be honest.

    All I know is that Trump and McCarthy have very little in common with regards to their respective missions. Trump probably has more in common with Eisenhower, who came down hard on immigrants. He has more in common with Truman, who required a loyalty oath among federal employees. http://coursesa.matrix.msu.edu/~hst306/documents/loyal.html

    McCarthy, who was undoubtedly flawed, also had (at first glance) more in common with that other state supreme court justice who was in congress(and co-founded the House unAmerican Activities committee), Samuel Dickstein. Oh, except that Dickstein was an actual spy for the Soviets who would testify at hearings against McCarthy's "red-baiting" at the insistence of his Soviet connections. Venona uncovered Dickstein for the traitorous rat that he was...but that was long after his death, so nobody cares about Dickstein's vile personality or horrible transgressions. He still has a street named for him in New York. And he will go unmentioned by the likes of Peter Lee.

    This article, true to form, is the same old journalistic "style over substance". The pretext of the article is to compare the political machinations that will end Trump's political career with those that brought down McCarthy. The real purpose of the article, however, is to portray Trump as another McCarthy, which - as I said before - is nonsensical.

    “This article appeals to emotion rather than logic, an emotion that overtakes journalists and those on the left who are convinced that outspoken politicians who aren’t social justice warriors are all part of some Nazi cabal . . .”

    This is precisely the issue at hand. The Left has had, at their disposal, near complete control over moral indignation and they understand the utility of that tool. Melodramatic moralism, of the BLM type, appeals to far too many Americans and they’ve been exploiting that weakness for years. Along comes a populist like Trump who understands the formula and uses it for his own purposes and they are in an uproar; how dare he steal their techniques! Yes, indeed, how dare he.

    Regarding how alien women get the government to pay for their anchor baby births: it is illegal in the US for a hospital to refuse to provide medical care to anyone requiring it. A woman in labor can show up at an emergency room and demand to be admitted. The hospital, will try to browbeat her for identification, insurance data, credit card, proof of residency etc, but all these women have to do is tell the clerk to go boil their head. They and the newborn will get whatever treatment is needed, and then they can wipe their rear with the bill when it's presented. The Mexican government and US NGO's publish brochures describing how to get taken care of for free. The hospital tries to make it up from people like us with insurance by charging $5,000 when we go in with a cut that needs stitches
    Regarding the military technology, because of immigrant tech students, American kids are being increasingly frozen out tech schools and jobs and immigrant engineers including Chinese are a growing percentage of Defense contractor employees. 99% are honest but 1% are plants and transferring everything they learn back home. I used to work with one who subtly mocked his oblivious bosses by sometimes wearing his People's Liberation Army web belt and red star buckle to work. Try talking about this sort of thing at work and watch what HR does to your intolerant, racist ass.

    The hospital tries to make it up from people like us with insurance by charging $5,000 when we go in with a cut that needs stitches

    So… I munched my wrist at work from a fall. (Dumb, I know…)

    The next day, while waiting in the office of the orthopod who would be doing my fracture repair surgery, high on morphine and drifting in and out of sleep, I could hear the Senorita next cubicle yabbity yabbity-ing to her husband in Spanish. In pain, I’m thinking, please, please shut up.

    The doc sees them first. She translates. He broke his wrist yesterday on the turntable of a drilling rig. Same exact, bog standard fracture as I have (acquired a bit differently but same munched wrist.) He asks if there’s insurance or is this charity care? Charity care, she says.

    I sit up. What????? This guy got hurt on the job! Halliburton has workers’ comp for this! Unless, of course, he is an illegal Mexican alien, working without a green card, taking a job from some White American guy for whom Halliburton WOULD have to pay worker’s comp.

    … The doc gives him his appointment for surgery, for the next available appointment the following Monday. (I’m thinking, wait all the way til Monday? Ouch. That’s a long time to go untreated in pain. Oh, well, he’s charity care. Naturally, charity care would be asked to wait behind those of us who are citizens and have insurance.)

    Ah, silly me, because then doc comes to see me. *MY* appointment will be next available… (after the one the illegal took)… on WEDNESDAY! Holy moly an ADDITIONAL two days in this miserable splint, waiting in line behind a jerk who ought not to even have been in my country!!! (Note, the doctor did NOT ask me the insurance / charity care question. He knew full well by looking at me that I’m a White American citizen, so I probably have insurance. He knew full well that illegal is scamming us.)

    Surgery went very well.

    Then the bills started coming. (The way my employer does it, I put in for my major medical and they cover the deductible.) So I got a firsthand look at the costs. Upwards of 12 K to fix my wrist. — And note, I didn’t even get to spend the night in the hospital or have a meal prepared for me. Outpatient surgery, out the door. “Good luck to you!! Go home, take good care of yourself. ”

    I used to be a radiology tech. So I happen to know that my bog-standard Colles fracture, the method to fix it is still the exact same as 20 years ago when I was in training. Although, back then, they admitted you to hospital from ER, did your surgery that day or the next, and kept you a day afterward. YET, the cost of my outpatient surgery is 4X what it cost back then.

    WHY? So that the doc could cover the free care he gave that damn illegal alien.

    Nonsense. There was snapback the moment he made his Wheeling, West Virginia speech. The original response to his charges in the Senate were for investigations into him, not the State Department. We may forget, since the waters have been irreversibly muddied by the likes of Murrow and given the fact that McCarthy was on the side of the Warfare State, obviously, and he was doing the bidding of J. Edgar Hoover, I think (how else did he get his dirt?) But McCarthy wasn’t the Powers That Be. He was taking on the White House, for goodness’ sake!

    It like all the apology about japanese internment over here.
    It just a way to justify all the killing of Japanese over there with tons of bombs.

    Sure, Japanese no good in WWII. They crazy. But american overkill in germany and japan sort of crazy too and go overboard.

    But americans no wanna face that, so they make big deal of contrite decency about interned japaneses. "we good and sorry to interned japanese so that we never need say sorry to japanese in hiroshimer." "reparation for internment means never having to say sorry(about hiroshimer)."

    likewise, 'we good to muslims here so we never need say sorry what we did in iraq, libya, syria, and etc.'

    But american overkill in germany and japan sort of crazy too and go overboard.

    Not really. The lesson in many wars is that massive destruction and overwhelming force does a better job of convincing the enemy to surrender than a series of small losses.

    The Union didn’t defeat the Confederacy until Grant ignored the butcher’s bill and relentlessly attacked Lee.

    The Japanese wanted to bloody our noses after we invaded Japan in hopes of getting a better deal but the bomb made them change their minds.

    Like maybe it would have been better to keep the Soviets out of the war against Japan. The deal between FDR and Stalin was for USSR to enter the Japanese war three months after the defeat of Germany.

    It would indeed have been better not to involve the Russians, but two things: 1. the USSR had already fought the Japanese and had interests in the Far East, so Stalin didn’t want to stay out, and 2. the prospect of invading the Japanese home islands was a grim one before the atom bomb(s) had been tested and dropped.

Jerks like Lee are the reason Trump will be elected. I hope The Donald sends him to a salt mine to cool off. While there at the mine, read up on the Venona files and the other recent publications that prove beyond any doubt that McCarthy was spot on.

    The American people are sick to death of the mush coming out of the mouths of Lee and his accomplices in Congress, the courts, the media and Hollywood. This is our country and we are taking it back. Don’t like it, Lee? Pack your cardboard suitcase and leave.

  • It’s funny how Peter Lee gets hot and bothered about “hate” in the US even as he defends China at every opportunity. China, a country where nationalist and xenophobic demagoguery are pillars of state-sponsored propaganda. China, where the state actually foments anti-foreigner riots in order to achieve diplomatic goals, and has done so for at least a century.

    Chinese are not bad people, but in this regard they’re a lot “worse” than white Americans. But is it really wrong to stand up for your own kind? Maybe this is one way in which Chinese are better than Americans — like Peter Lee they see nothing wrong with favoring their own. In fact, the vast majority of the world’s people are that way. Maybe American whites are just becoming more like the Chinese.

    Why is that a problem, Peter? When I was in China, I learned to accept the fact that China is Chinese because that’s how the people want it. Once I accepted that and learned not to resent it, I got along with people fine. I even came to appreciate Chinese more, because I didn’t have to deal with the hypocrisy one finds throughout fashionable American society. Maybe you should drop the hypocrisy yourself and try that here.

    Some of the nicest people I met in China would be considered the most ignorant, racist, prejudiced xenophobic bigots if they were white Americans with similar attitudes. Turned out they were actually pretty decent people when I got to know them. Salt of the earth blue collar/laobaixing types. Good, loyal friends and nice people with a strong sense of right and wrong. Lots of Trump supporters are exactly the same kind of people. In fact, if there were a Chinese Trump, he’d be immensely, yuuuugely popular in China and you know it.

    In one sentence this nothing trashes the backbone of America’s culture. Those Trump supporters make what is left of America, function.

    Trump is a builder – he is not a legal type (although he has won in the courts), he is not a banker (although he has amassed money), he is not a politician (although he not doing badly) – he is someone with a can do American mentality – who wants to do good for his country – he wants to rebuild America.

    Mr.Lee's attacks on Trump would be much less galling if they were substantiated by arguments. In fact, I have not understood either his reasons or his motives. So, regrettably, we can only speculate.

    Mr. Lee may be inflamed by tribal/clannish interests: the "danger" for well-doing Chinese no more to acquire American citizenship by birth tourism.
    But in a civilized country nobody can expect any more than he is prepared to give. So "What can Chinese expect from the United States?" must be confronted with "How is citizenship handled by the Chinese itself? Could an American woman go to China in order to give birth to a child and acquire citizenship there, first for the child and afterwards for herself as a family member?" Or, more generally "How are matters of immigration and citizenship handled in the Chinese homeland? And, if at all, WHY are the U.S. Americans obliged to be more gratuitious tha the Chinese?" Wouldn't that be an interesting subject for this blog here?

  • My biggest worry with Trump isn’t what the media is going to do to him, but whether or not he will get bored of politics if he isn’t elected.

    His considerable financial resources and media presense can do an enormous amount for the revivial of populist (majoritarian as opposed to ideological liberal/socialist) politics in the Anglosphere but I suspect he may quickly loss interest in politics if he isn’t elected. I hope I’m wrong.

    Also while we’re on the topic of destructive American politicians, LBJ takes the award by a country mile. Master of the dark arts and pioneer of government welfare and immigration policy as tools for left-liberal social engineering.

    Eisenhower deported illegal immigrants and enforced the law, and kept legal immigration at very low levels. Eisenhower didn’t bankrupt the nation mindlessly attacking nations that didn’t threaten us. Eisenhower didn’t sign away our industries with ‘free’ trade agreements. Eisenhower didn’t try to gut social security so the rich could get even richer. Kind of like what Trump is saying.

Eisenhower didn't think we should gut social security in order to bail out the big Wall Street banks. Eisenhower didn't think that we should open the borders to overpopulated third-world cesspits like Mexico so the rich could get even richer. Eisenhower didn't sign off on trade agreements that would make the US ruled by unaccountable foreign lawyers meeting in secret.

    If Eisenhower were alive today, it is certain that he would be focused on destroying… Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio.

    Notwithstanding, "red scare" wasn't a simple product of manipulations ("frighten the public"), it was grounded in experience. It was a consequence of "red rise" in the Roosevelt Administration. The Roosevelt Reds had slickly tried to undermine the American tradition - civil liberties, pluralism and democratic control - and they had made good use of intimidation aganst their critics, above all during war time. So there had to be a repercussion, and the huge wave of so-called "McCarthyism" (for most of which McCarthy was not personally responsible) was just this inevitable popular repercussion against the dominance of the Roosevelt Reds.

The left originally claimed that the transcripts were forged or mistranslations, but this argument was obliterated when the KGB released their own internal docs, which fully vindicated both VENONA and McCarthy.

    I generally like the idea that Unz publishes people across the political spectrum, and I hope that this promotes dialog, but for this to happen those on the left have to be honest and well-informed.

Despite Trump's rhetorical excesses there is not one of his policy positions that is not more rationale, humane, and beneficial for his fellow countrymen than any opposing position by any other candidate, Democrat or Republican. That is why there has been a total unwillingness on the part of any of Trump's opponents -- whether the political establishment, the financial elites who have bought the servile obeissance of that establishment or the MSM echco chamber megaphoning the message of this coalition -- to actually engage him on the issues.

  • @Mark Green
    Likening any political figure to Joseph McCarthy is itself a smear. Lee obviously understands this. This is why McCarthy (the memory) is kept alive. It's a useful political weapon.

    Indeed, most people today associate Sen. Joe McCarthy with making 'recklessly false charges' involving non-existent communists. But that perception is wrong.

    McCarthy's charges were not false as much as they were (at times) exaggerated and unsubstantiated. This distinction is critical.

    In fact, McCarthy got a lot of things right.

    It's been proven that countless communists were indeed operating within US government, throughout elite media, and in America's labor movement during the so-called 'McCarthy Era'. Millions of Americans however remain confused about this fact. This is no accident. And we can thank 'journalists' like Peter Lee for this confusion.

    Of note: JFK and the entire Kennedy clan never stopped defending Sen. Joe McCarthy.

    Indeed, Sen. McCarthy has also been vindicated (in part) due to archives released after the fall of the USSR. Other historians have made similar findings. Recommended reading: 'Hollywood Party' (this book offers vast documentation concerning communists in Hollywood).

    So there were indeed countless communist operatives at work in America during the 'McCarthy Era'. We should give some thanks then to 'tail-gunner' Joe McCarthy for blowing the whistle on these people.

    After all, the communist movement slaughtered far more people and consumed far more countries than the Nazis ever even imagined. The scale of communist destruction and despotism is unrivaled. Over 70 years, the movement the promised 'equality' consumed tens of millions of lives.

    Even the 'falsely accused' Rosenbergs (so-claimed the ACLU) turned out to be commie traitors. This disputed fact however wasn't known until the '90s.

    So what's Peter Lee's stale rehash of 'McCarthyism' really about?

    After all, communism is dead and buried. And in the end, McCarthy was at least partly right.

    Furthermore, 'anti-communism' (and Joe McCarthy) have nothing to do with the political platform of Donald Trump--despite Lee's insinuations.

    Indeed, Lee's 'news' is mostly bogus and out-of-date.

    Clearly then, Lee's smear-by-association is designed for one purpose: to undermine the candidacy of Donald Trump by 1) impugning his character and 2) shaming Trump's base.

    'Guilt and shame'. It's what the Left does.

    Pat Buchanan received similar treatment when he ran for the Presidency. Unfortunately for Pat, the unscrupulous opposition continuously tarred him as a 'Nazi', a 'racist', and an 'antisemite' since it was Buchanan--and only Buchanan--who dared to criticize Israel's 'special relationship' with the US Congress and the American taxpayer.

    Buchanan also didn't go gently on taboos involving the description of black-run neighborhoods and cities. Sadly, the truth did not set Buchanan free. It made him a target.

    Indeed, for violating American taboos, Buchanan was hounded relentlessly.

    I witnessed disruptive verbal attacks on Buchanan at both of the two Buchanan rallies I attended in California. One was a Jewish protest. Another was a 'gay' protest. These professional victims never rest and they seldom play fair.

    Even neocon cuckservatives like George Will attacked Buchanan during the campaign. Pitiful. Countless good men are kept down in America. Their crime?--speaking truth to privileged minorities.

    Ironically, Buchanan's brilliance, his daring rhetoric, and his invaluable honesty made his candidacy politically non-viable. The Venal Empire would not permit a Buchanan presidency.

    This lesson has surely not escaped the attention of candidate Trump. So watch Trump never criticize you-know-who or tread where trailblazer Pat Buchanan dared to go.

    Sadly, Trump is scheduled to meet with billionaire, casino-mogul and crypto-Israeli, Sheldon Adelson, next week. Deals will be made. Fortunes will be pledged. And the oligarchs will soon be writing some very big checks. Trump may likely tone down his rhetoric over time. Eventually, he'll go a bit more 'mainstream'. This is how America operates.

    Bear in mind however that only the media moguls and media professionals can shape the news. This explains why Zionist billionaires such as Michael Bloomberg, Hiam Sabin, Mort Zuckerman, and Rupert Merdoch have more political power than even the mega-rich (and non-Jewish) Koch brothers. It's their mass media holdings. The Koch brothers don't even own so much as one TV station in all of Kansas.

    Media moguls on the other hand, can not only give money but they can also shape voter attitudes via their news and entertainment conglomerates. That's where the extra power lies.

    So expect more junk journalism going forward involving Trump and, for that matter, any candidate that strays too far from the mainstream script.

    Wow. Really poor logic. First, you presumed (I presume) that I'm a McCarthy supporter. As I said in my comment, McCarthy was flawed. The message was righteous, but the messenger had serious problems. McCarthy was best friends with the Kennedy family, and that should tell you something. At times, he had problems with the truth. Almost inexplicably, at other times, his honesty was spot on and his assessment of Soviet espionage in the US was clear,concise and accurate. The problem is that many people on the left follow the ancient falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus line of reasoning when it comes to historical figures. That way, they can define those they don't like only by their worst traits while ignoring their positive contributions.

    On the other hand, some people, like conservative writer Stan Evans, try to resurrect the historical McCarthy, but they miss the point, too. Simplistic historical narrative is not the answer to simplistic historical narrative. McCarthy was the wrong man for the right job. It wasn't the man I admire, but his mission. Like Eisenhower, I also wish somebody else had taken on the task of exposing espionage in the US, because it WAS THERE, just like McCarthy said it was.

    As to your poor logic, Trump supporters probably also support preacher Billy Graham more than leftists and Democrats. Does that that mean that Trump and Graham have the same mission or parallel paths?

    Mr. Lee may be inflamed by tribal/clannish interests: the “danger” for well-doing Chinese no more to acquire American citizenship by birth tourism.
    But in a civilized country nobody can expect any more than he is prepared to give. So “What can Chinese expect from the United States?” must be confronted with “How is citizenship handled by the Chinese itself? Could an American woman go to China in order to give birth to a child and acquire citizenship there, first for the child and afterwards for herself as a family member?” Or, more generally “How are matters of immigration and citizenship handled in the Chinese homeland? And, if at all, WHY are the U.S. Americans obliged to be more gratuitious tha the Chinese?” Wouldn’t that be an interesting subject for this blog here?

However, no body has challenged this issue in court I believe, or I might be wrong. Also we cannot speak of 'illigals' as if they have not soul. The US has a visa program for temporal workers to come and work for up to 9 months, and exit the country, and come back again. That program should be offered to people who voluntarily exit the country and if they want to work here, fine. Not problem that way, I believe.

  • Likening any political figure to Joseph McCarthy is itself a smear. Lee obviously understands this. This is why McCarthy (the memory) is kept alive. It’s a useful political weapon.

    Indeed, most people today associate Sen. Joe McCarthy with making ‘recklessly false charges’ involving non-existent communists. But that perception is wrong.

    McCarthy’s charges were not false as much as they were (at times) exaggerated and unsubstantiated. This distinction is critical.

    In fact, McCarthy got a lot of things right.

    It’s been proven that countless communists were indeed operating within US government, throughout elite media, and in America’s labor movement during the so-called ‘McCarthy Era’. Millions of Americans however remain confused about this fact. This is no accident. And we can thank ‘journalists’ like Peter Lee for this confusion.

    Of note: JFK and the entire Kennedy clan never stopped defending Sen. Joe McCarthy.

    Indeed, Sen. McCarthy has also been vindicated (in part) due to archives released after the fall of the USSR. Other historians have made similar findings. Recommended reading: ‘Hollywood Party’ (this book offers vast documentation concerning communists in Hollywood).

    So there were indeed countless communist operatives at work in America during the ‘McCarthy Era’. We should give some thanks then to ‘tail-gunner’ Joe McCarthy for blowing the whistle on these people.

    After all, the communist movement slaughtered far more people and consumed far more countries than the Nazis ever even imagined. The scale of communist destruction and despotism is unrivaled. Over 70 years, the movement the promised ‘equality’ consumed tens of millions of lives.

    Even the ‘falsely accused’ Rosenbergs (so-claimed the ACLU) turned out to be commie traitors. This disputed fact however wasn’t known until the ’90s.

    So what’s Peter Lee’s stale rehash of ‘McCarthyism’ really about?

    After all, communism is dead and buried. And in the end, McCarthy was at least partly right.

    Furthermore, ‘anti-communism’ (and Joe McCarthy) have nothing to do with the political platform of Donald Trump–despite Lee’s insinuations.

    Indeed, Lee’s ‘news’ is mostly bogus and out-of-date.

    Clearly then, Lee’s smear-by-association is designed for one purpose: to undermine the candidacy of Donald Trump by 1) impugning his character and 2) shaming Trump’s base.

    ‘Guilt and shame’. It’s what the Left does.

    Pat Buchanan received similar treatment when he ran for the Presidency. Unfortunately for Pat, the unscrupulous opposition continuously tarred him as a ‘Nazi’, a ‘racist’, and an ‘antisemite’ since it was Buchanan–and only Buchanan–who dared to criticize Israel’s ‘special relationship’ with the US Congress and the American taxpayer.

    Buchanan also didn’t go gently on taboos involving the description of black-run neighborhoods and cities. Sadly, the truth did not set Buchanan free. It made him a target.

    Indeed, for violating American taboos, Buchanan was hounded relentlessly.

    I witnessed disruptive verbal attacks on Buchanan at both of the two Buchanan rallies I attended in California. One was a Jewish protest. Another was a ‘gay’ protest. These professional victims never rest and they seldom play fair.

    Even neocon cuckservatives like George Will attacked Buchanan during the campaign. Pitiful. Countless good men are kept down in America. Their crime?–speaking truth to privileged minorities.

    Ironically, Buchanan’s brilliance, his daring rhetoric, and his invaluable honesty made his candidacy politically non-viable. The Venal Empire would not permit a Buchanan presidency.

    This lesson has surely not escaped the attention of candidate Trump. So watch Trump never criticize you-know-who or tread where trailblazer Pat Buchanan dared to go.

    Sadly, Trump is scheduled to meet with billionaire, casino-mogul and crypto-Israeli, Sheldon Adelson, next week. Deals will be made. Fortunes will be pledged. And the oligarchs will soon be writing some very big checks. Trump may likely tone down his rhetoric over time. Eventually, he’ll go a bit more ‘mainstream’. This is how America operates.

    Bear in mind however that only the media moguls and media professionals can shape the news. This explains why Zionist billionaires such as Michael Bloomberg, Hiam Sabin, Mort Zuckerman, and Rupert Merdoch have more political power than even the mega-rich (and non-Jewish) Koch brothers. It’s their mass media holdings. The Koch brothers don’t even own so much as one TV station in all of Kansas.

    Media moguls on the other hand, can not only give money but they can also shape voter attitudes via their news and entertainment conglomerates. That’s where the extra power lies.

    So expect more junk journalism going forward involving Trump and, for that matter, any candidate that strays too far from the mainstream script.

  • Even if Mr. Lee obviously hates McCarthy, he comes up here with no more than with what Murrow came up: that McCarthy lied over the ACLU as a “proscribed Communist organization”.

    Now, i don’t know what exactly he (or Murrow or McCarthy) meant with “proscribed”. As for the ACLU, the “1943 California Senate Fact-Finding Committee on Un-American Activities reported that the ACLU “may be definitely classed as a communist front.” The committee added that “at least 90 percent of its [the ACLU’s] efforts are expended on behalf of communists who come into conflict with the law.” That 90-percent figure was consistent with a major report produced by Congress a decade earlier, January 17, 1931.” (Paul Kegan, http://www.westernjournalism.com/the-aclus-communist-atheist-roots/)

    Roger Baldwin, ACLU founder and one of those honest people who really converted from Communism, found it necessary to install into the ACLU a kind of personal declaration that the member was no Communist. Perhaps he knew more about the matter than Murrow or Lee?)

    (N.B. I am grateful to Mr. Lee who this way got me knowing about Paul Kegan and his book “Dupes” about US Americans infatuated with the Soviet system and wanting to install it in the US, from sources in Russian archives.)

  • The interesting fact is that a lot of Jews could have openly told, that yes, they had supported communism in the 1930s, but now they had converted from it.

    That’s what the gentile Elia Kazan did, as well as a small number of Jews. Most Jews pretended innocence, secretized their past, simply lied or used bathos: How CAN you be so mean to nail me on something I did fifteen years ago???

    It was a stupid thing to do; it aroused much more suspicion than necessary. So why did they do it?

    Mr. Diamond may know the explanation from family experience. I only can deliver three possibilities:

    1. They still believed in the essence of communim and wanted to continue supporting it as far as possible.
    2. They had no convictions at all and took it for granted that every smart man adapts the zeitgeist of the actual decade: communism in the Thirties, anti-communism in the Fifties (in this case it would have been really unfair to nail them on something they did in the past).
    3. They were crippled by a tradition of general fear and dishonesty against gentiles: “we poor Jews have always to deceive the white man in order to survive”, so deceit was simply the first idea which came to their mind..

Eisenhower didn’t think we should gut social security in order to bail out the big Wall Street banks. Eisenhower didn’t think that we should open the borders to overpopulated third-world cesspits like Mexico so the rich could get even richer. Eisenhower didn’t sign off on trade agreements that would make the US ruled by unaccountable foreign lawyers meeting in secret.

    I am somewhat puzzled about what Peter Lee finds so objectionable about Donald Trump. Is it Trump's promise to get rid of birth citizenship which Chinese are increasingly trying to take advantage of in California? Is it Trump's blustery call to get tough with China on trade and jobs? Or is it Trump's pledge to build the wall to protect our southern border from illegal aliens coming from Mexico? It certainly can't be Trump's position on foreign affairs since he and Rand Paul came across as the most sane and sensible and least warlike candidates among the Republicans debating in Las Vegas the other night. I think Mr. Lee's comparison of Trump to Joe McCarthy is way over the top. What is the connection between Trump's wanting to evict all illegal aliens living in the U.S. and McCarthy's wanting to rid the federal government of communists? Has Trump ever stated that he has a list of 57 illegal aliens living in the U.S.? Does Mr. Lee deny all the reports that there are at least 11 million illegals living in the U.S., does he not care or does he think it would be "inhumane" to evict such people who came here illegally and have no legal right to remain here? I think Joe McCarthy was truly excessive and reckless in conducting his campaign against Communists in the 50's (accusing Eisenhower and Gen. George C. Marshall of being "fellow travelers" was totally foolish), but it is now undeniable that there were real Communists at all levels of the federal government, not fantasies of a mentally ill man like the great mathematician and game theorist John Nash as falsely portrayed in the movie "A Beautiful Mind" (in reality, as made clear in the book upon which the movie was based, Nash's delusions and fantasies had to do with communications with aliens from outer space, not imaginary Communists).

    This something the Canadian Conrad Black had to say about comparisons of Trump to Adolph Hitler (according to a piece by the NY Times’ Roger Cohen which was reprinted in the Canadian newspaper “National Post”), Joe McCarthy and your drunk Uncle Billy:

    “I wrote about the Trump candidacy in my column in the National Review Online (New York) last week and it was widely reposted, including by Donald himself. He is not my preferred candidate but I denounced the Cohen piece, as well as the comparison of Trump with Senator Joseph R. McCarthy by Max Boot, a distinguished guerrilla war and Middle East expert. Now that the Cohen comments have migrated to Canada, I say that that column, and reflections like it, including these local echoes, are ignorant, false, and grossly misleading. There is no comparison to be drawn between any of these individuals, except in contrasts, and the outrages committed by this sort of Trump-accuser are far more egregious than even Donald’s clumsiest sallies. . .

    “As for Max Boot, Senator McCarthy accused Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, and Eisenhower and General George C. Marshall, of being Communist dupes, and incited pathological fears that the U.S. government was a vast infestation of Soviet agents and traitors, and that communists arose as if infected by a virus, all over America, and had to be exterminated like termites. Where Max Boot imagines Donald Trump fits into any such nightmare escapes my comprehension. . . .”

    2. Germany is still being punished.

    Wow. Really poor logic. First, you presumed (I presume) that I’m a McCarthy supporter. As I said in my comment, McCarthy was flawed. The message was righteous, but the messenger had serious problems. McCarthy was best friends with the Kennedy family, and that should tell you something. At times, he had problems with the truth. Almost inexplicably, at other times, his honesty was spot on and his assessment of Soviet espionage in the US was clear,concise and accurate. The problem is that many people on the left follow the ancient falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus line of reasoning when it comes to historical figures. That way, they can define those they don’t like only by their worst traits while ignoring their positive contributions.

    On the other hand, some people, like conservative writer Stan Evans, try to resurrect the historical McCarthy, but they miss the point, too. Simplistic historical narrative is not the answer to simplistic historical narrative. McCarthy was the wrong man for the right job. It wasn’t the man I admire, but his mission. Like Eisenhower, I also wish somebody else had taken on the task of exposing espionage in the US, because it WAS THERE, just like McCarthy said it was.

    As to your poor logic, Trump supporters probably also support preacher Billy Graham more than leftists and Democrats. Does that that mean that Trump and Graham have the same mission or parallel paths?

    Trump = McCarthy? A truly silly premise for a hit piece on Trump.
     
    Absolutely correct. This article appeals to emotion rather than logic, an emotion that overtakes journalists and those on the left who are convinced that outspoken politicians who aren't social justice warriors are all part of some Nazi cabal...or something. I actually can't quite figure it out, to be honest.

    All I know is that Trump and McCarthy have very little in common with regards to their respective missions. Trump probably has more in common with Eisenhower, who came down hard on immigrants. He has more in common with Truman, who required a loyalty oath among federal employees. http://coursesa.matrix.msu.edu/~hst306/documents/loyal.html

    McCarthy, who was undoubtedly flawed, also had (at first glance) more in common with that other state supreme court justice who was in congress(and co-founded the House unAmerican Activities committee), Samuel Dickstein. Oh, except that Dickstein was an actual spy for the Soviets who would testify at hearings against McCarthy's "red-baiting" at the insistence of his Soviet connections. Venona uncovered Dickstein for the traitorous rat that he was...but that was long after his death, so nobody cares about Dickstein's vile personality or horrible transgressions. He still has a street named for him in New York. And he will go unmentioned by the likes of Peter Lee.

    If liberalism and Communism are so distant, why are liberals obsessed with the alcoholic, possibly bisexual, clumsy, tragic Mc Carthy, who died at about 50 give or take a year or two, almost 60 years after his death? Could it be because of his anti-communism? Mc Carthy had very few truly innocent victims; Eisenhower and Marshall may have been the only ones. Mc Carthy was far less evil than his enemies. Trump supporters, a category which doesn't include me, for all of their fault (and those of their hero) are at least smart enough to know that the Establishment does not have their interests at heart.

    I'm a Trump supporter and I know McCarthy to be a pandering self serving ass hole. Your point is well taken but your generalization is in error.
    , @J1234
    Wow. Really poor logic. First, you presumed (I presume) that I'm a McCarthy supporter. As I said in my comment, McCarthy was flawed. The message was righteous, but the messenger had serious problems. McCarthy was best friends with the Kennedy family, and that should tell you something. At times, he had problems with the truth. Almost inexplicably, at other times, his honesty was spot on and his assessment of Soviet espionage in the US was clear,concise and accurate. The problem is that many people on the left follow the ancient falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus line of reasoning when it comes to historical figures. That way, they can define those they don't like only by their worst traits while ignoring their positive contributions.

    On the other hand, some people, like conservative writer Stan Evans, try to resurrect the historical McCarthy, but they miss the point, too. Simplistic historical narrative is not the answer to simplistic historical narrative. McCarthy was the wrong man for the right job. It wasn't the man I admire, but his mission. Like Eisenhower, I also wish somebody else had taken on the task of exposing espionage in the US, because it WAS THERE, just like McCarthy said it was.

    As to your poor logic, Trump supporters probably also support preacher Billy Graham more than leftists and Democrats. Does that that mean that Trump and Graham have the same mission or parallel paths?

    Not even a nice try there, my dear Mr. Lee. Those flecks of foam round the lips of your hit piece gave your game away.

    And, yes, Senator McCarthy was right about Communists in Government – his only error was in missing the many other Communists he didn’t expose.

  • Well, I didn’t realize YOU were Chinese. You sound exactly like Charlie Chan’s No. 1 Son. I guess you pronounce your name as “The Pliss Factory.”

    And here I thought that Peter Lee was a descendant of Robert E. Lee and all the other Lees of Virginia. Learn something new every day.

    “McCarthy same way. He act so tough on commie but he never talk about Jew. He too chicken. He never say the truth that many commie were Jew.”

    I was in elementary school when the Army-McCarthy hearings were televised, so I didn’t know what was going on in any real sense. When I got older and started reading about that period, I was fascinated to learn about McCarthy and Roy Cohn. Cohn was a brilliant lawyer (one of the prosecutors of the Rosenbergs) and had quite a career in NYC after leaving McCarthy. (I lived on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. from the mid 70′s until late 80′s and heard from several people that Cohn had a house at 5th and Seward Square, S.E., north of Pennsylvania Avenue, which he apparently retained after moving to NYC. The reason he bought that house, apparently, was because it was one of the few on Capitol Hill (a 19th century neighborhood consisting of brick row houses) at the time to have a swimming pool in the backyard.) The interesting thing about Cohn is that it was generally known he was homosexual (I believe he ultimately died of AIDS), but nobody wrote anything about it when he was living because he had vociferously denied the rumors and threatened to sue anybody who dared to write about it. I guess his reputation as a ferocious litigator scared a lot of people away from the subject. Under the circumstances, I guess it made sense for McCarthy to use Cohn, not only because he was a brilliant lawyer but because the fact that he was Jewish helped insulate McCarthy to an extent from charges of anti-Semitism.

    (BTW in Googling Cohn, I came across this bit of information which was new to me:

    “Lavender scare[edit]

    See also: Lavender scare

    Cohn and McCarthy targeted many government officials and cultural figures not only for suspected Communist sympathies, but also for alleged homosexuality.[25] McCarthy and Cohn were responsible for the firing of scores of gay men from government employment, and strong-armed many opponents into silence using rumors of their homosexuality.[26][27] Former U.S. Senator Alan K. Simpson has written: “The so-called ‘Red Scare’ has been the main focus of most historians of that period of time. A lesser-known element … and one that harmed far more people was the witch-hunt McCarthy and others conducted against homosexuals.”[28] ” )

    When I was in college, I worked for several years in the summer at one of the Marriott’s first hotels. One of the men who came aboard as a checkout clerk was an older Jewish man named Sheldon something-or-other who had lost his job working for the Department of Labor as a result of the Red Scare in the 50′s. I would occasionally read letters to the editor of the Washington Post that he would write concerning Social Security or some similar topic, which was the area he worked in at the DOL. He was a very nice man, and we would occasionally get into discussions about philosophy. He had majored in philosophy at Wayne State (in Detroit, I believe). His favorite philosopher, as I recall, was Spinoza. But he was an absolute klutz when it came to performing his duties as a checkout clerk. We never discussed politics or his dismissal from the government because of his Communist affiliation.

    Absolutely correct. This article appeals to emotion rather than logic, an emotion that overtakes journalists and those on the left who are convinced that outspoken politicians who aren’t social justice warriors are all part of some Nazi cabal…or something. I actually can’t quite figure it out, to be honest.

    All I know is that Trump and McCarthy have very little in common with regards to their respective missions. Trump probably has more in common with Eisenhower, who came down hard on immigrants. He has more in common with Truman, who required a loyalty oath among federal employees. http://coursesa.matrix.msu.edu/~hst306/documents/loyal.html

    McCarthy, who was undoubtedly flawed, also had (at first glance) more in common with that other state supreme court justice who was in congress(and co-founded the House unAmerican Activities committee), Samuel Dickstein. Oh, except that Dickstein was an actual spy for the Soviets who would testify at hearings against McCarthy’s “red-baiting” at the insistence of his Soviet connections. Venona uncovered Dickstein for the traitorous rat that he was…but that was long after his death, so nobody cares about Dickstein’s vile personality or horrible transgressions. He still has a street named for him in New York. And he will go unmentioned by the likes of Peter Lee.

    This is precisely the issue at hand. The Left has had, at their disposal, near complete control over moral indignation and they understand the utility of that tool. Melodramatic moralism, of the BLM type, appeals to far too many Americans and they've been exploiting that weakness for years.

    I am somewhat puzzled about what Peter Lee finds so objectionable about Donald Trump. Is it Trump's promise to get rid of birth citizenship which Chinese are increasingly trying to take advantage of in California? Is it Trump's blustery call to get tough with China on trade and jobs? Or is it Trump's pledge to build the wall to protect our southern border from illegal aliens coming from Mexico? It certainly can't be Trump's position on foreign affairs since he and Rand Paul came across as the most sane and sensible and least warlike candidates among the Republicans debating in Las Vegas the other night. I think Mr. Lee's comparison of Trump to Joe McCarthy is way over the top. What is the connection between Trump's wanting to evict all illegal aliens living in the U.S. and McCarthy's wanting to rid the federal government of communists? Has Trump ever stated that he has a list of 57 illegal aliens living in the U.S.? Does Mr. Lee deny all the reports that there are at least 11 million illegals living in the U.S., does he not care or does he think it would be "inhumane" to evict such people who came here illegally and have no legal right to remain here? I think Joe McCarthy was truly excessive and reckless in conducting his campaign against Communists in the 50's (accusing Eisenhower and Gen. George C. Marshall of being "fellow travelers" was totally foolish), but it is now undeniable that there were real Communists at all levels of the federal government, not fantasies of a mentally ill man like the great mathematician and game theorist John Nash as falsely portrayed in the movie "A Beautiful Mind" (in reality, as made clear in the book upon which the movie was based, Nash's delusions and fantasies had to do with communications with aliens from outer space, not imaginary Communists).

    This something the Canadian Conrad Black had to say about comparisons of Trump to Adolph Hitler (according to a piece by the NY Times' Roger Cohen which was reprinted in the Canadian newspaper "National Post"), Joe McCarthy and your drunk Uncle Billy:

    "I wrote about the Trump candidacy in my column in the National Review Online (New York) last week and it was widely reposted, including by Donald himself. He is not my preferred candidate but I denounced the Cohen piece, as well as the comparison of Trump with Senator Joseph R. McCarthy by Max Boot, a distinguished guerrilla war and Middle East expert. Now that the Cohen comments have migrated to Canada, I say that that column, and reflections like it, including these local echoes, are ignorant, false, and grossly misleading. There is no comparison to be drawn between any of these individuals, except in contrasts, and the outrages committed by this sort of Trump-accuser are far more egregious than even Donald’s clumsiest sallies. . .

    "As for Max Boot, Senator McCarthy accused Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, and Eisenhower and General George C. Marshall, of being Communist dupes, and incited pathological fears that the U.S. government was a vast infestation of Soviet agents and traitors, and that communists arose as if infected by a virus, all over America, and had to be exterminated like termites. Where Max Boot imagines Donald Trump fits into any such nightmare escapes my comprehension. . . ."

    I’m one of those voters that supports Trump. I’d say it’s all the other bought-and-paid-for candidates who are in the sewer overflowing with the filthy lucre of Adelson, Sana, Soros, the Koch Bros., the Chamber of Commerce, etc. These are the candidates who have been paid to support massive immigration at any cost; immigration that undercuts American wages, destroys the American working and middle classes, introduces whole new racial underclasses into our country, and has had a devestating effect on internal security. Despite Trump’s rhetorical excesses there is not one of his policy positions that is not more rationale, humane, and beneficial for his fellow countrymen than any opposing position by any other candidate, Democrat or Republican. That is why there has been a total unwillingness on the part of any of Trump’s opponents — whether the political establishment, the financial elites who have bought the servile obeissance of that establishment or the MSM echco chamber megaphoning the message of this coalition — to actually engage him on the issues.

  • McCarthy had to choose Cohn over Bobby Kennedy in order to keep the professional anti-anti-Semites from destroying the committee before it even got stated. But, essentially, it was the old, now dead, Eastern WASP Establishment that killed McCarthy:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Mockingbird#Directorate_for_Plans

    McCarthy, as part of his campaign against government, began accusing other senior members of the CIA as being security risks. McCarthy claimed that the CIA was a “sinkhole of communists”, and said he would root out a hundred of them. One of his first targets was Cord Meyer, who was still working for Operation Mockingbird. In August 1953, Richard Helms, Wisner’s deputy at the OPC, told Meyer that McCarthy had accused him of being a communist. The Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was unwilling to give Meyer “security clearance”, without referring to any evidence against him. Allen W. Dulles and Frank Wisner both came to his defense and refused to permit an FBI interrogation of Meyer.[13]

    With the network in authority in the CIA threatened, Wisner was directed to unleash Mockingbird on McCarthy. Drew Pearson, Joe Alsop, Jack Anderson, Walter Lippmann and Ed Murrow all engaged in intensely negative coverage of McCarthy. According to Jack Anderson, his political reputation was permanently damaged by the press coverage orchestrated by Wisner.[14]
