McCarthy was an american politician, who is today often seen as a lunatic due to his paranoia centered on Communist subversion of the United States. He is known for alleging that numerous communists and Soviet spies and sympathizers had infiltrated the United States federal government, universities, film industry, and elsewhere. McCarthy ended up being censured by the US Senate. Today, the term “McCarthysm” is used to mean “demagogic, reckless, and unsubstantiated accusations, as well as public attacks on the character or patriotism of political opponents”.
For decades, Leftists held the high ground in the debate on Communist infiltration of the United States, and the West in general. During the Cold War and afterwards, leftists at universities and elsewhere sneered at anyone who even mentioned the possibility of such infiltration, and domestic anti-communism was treated as popular irrationality. Thanks largely to the Vietnam war, by the end of 1960s demonization of anti-Communists had gained traction, and anyone warning of the threat of Communism was dismissed as essentially next Hitler. This applied even to moderate politicians who warned that Communist sympathizers might have influenced the US foreign policy.
There is only one problem with this narrative – McCarthy was completely correct in his allegations. In fact, McCarthy himself seriously underestimated the extent of the Communist infiltration of the US government and other institutions. Even before World War II., there was a large number of Communist spies and activists in the US. An American Communist and courier of GRU, Whittaker Chambers, dropped out of espionage in 1937-38., appaled by the murderous Stalin’s regime and the American Communist Party which blindly followed the Soviet line. Fearful for his life and that of his wife, Chambers retained copies of stolen State Department documents, which he termed his “life preserver.”. The primary source was State Department official Alger Hiss.
In 1939., when Soviet Union signed the nonagression pact with the Nazi Germany, Chambers became convinced that USSR was a dangerous enemy whose espionage activities should be revealed to American counterintelligence. Anti-Communist journalist Isaac Don Levine arranged for him to meet Assistant Secretary of State Adolph Berle, FDR’s top adviser regarding internal security. Berle made a list of US Government employees Chambers named as Soviet Agents. Among them were State Department official Hiss (“Lawyer,” “Ales”), Treasury Department official Harry Dexter White (“Richard”), and an assistant to President Roosevelt, Lauchlin Currie (“Page”).
But FDR rebuffed Berle’s mention to him of Chambers’ allegations, and Berle only sent his notes to the FBI in 1943. In the meantime, Soviet agents and sympathizers infiltrated and perforated the US Army Air Force, Treasury Department, and War Production Board. Frank Coe, Solomon Adler and Harry Dexter White used their authority to delay delivery of a large Congressionally approved gold loan to China’s Nationalist government, causing China’s monetary unit to depreciate in value and thus undercut support for the Nationalist government.
During the World War II there were Soviet spies in every segment of the US government, aiming to influence the US policy to benefit the Soviet Union. Soviet spies were present in the State, Treasury, Justice, Congress, the military, intelligence agencies, defense industries, the media, educational system, and the White House. They were working at the projects such as the Manhattan Project which created the atomic bomb – in fact, USSRs espionage shortened their own atomic bomb program by at least several years. Robert Oppenheimer, head of the US atomic bomb program, was a member of the CPUSA (US Communist Party), though perhaps not a spy himself. But Klaus Fuchs, a German physicist, supplied the Soviets important information about the project. Theodore Hall, a young American physicist and a Communist, was likewise an important spy in the project. Above all, there was a spy ring headed by Julius Rosenberg, an American engineer, Communist and a longtime agent of the Soviet Intelligence. And if it were not for a lucky change in the Democrat ticket for the president in 1944., America would have had two Soviet spies heading major cabinet positions and a president who believed that Communist Russia was the light of the world. Almost every case which McCarthy had charged was correct.
Both Roosevelt and Truman administrations were rife with Communist spies and political operatives who reported (directly or indirectly) to the Soviet government. The sum is as follows: Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, executed in June 1953 for atomic espionage, were guilty; Alger Hiss, a darling of the establishment was guilty; Robert Oppenheimer was also guilty. Likewise, dozens of lesser known persons (e.g. Victor Perlo, Judith Coplon, Harry Gold) whose innocence of accusations had been a tenet of leftist faith for decades were also traitors. Theodore Alvin Hall, a Harvard-trained physicist, was also passing secrets about the atomic bomb. Loss of its secrets allowed Soviets to promote Communism all across Asia. And the spies caught by the Vernona project were a minority: the Project had managed to only decode 3 000 messages out of 25 000 that were intercepted. From this small number of documents, the government was able to uncover names of over 300 Americans working as Soviet spies and agents, with positions in major corporations, development boards and government agencies. The Vernona papers also indicated that the Communist Party of America was actively assisting Soviet spies in their actions against the US. CPUSA was, in fact, an instrument of the Soviet policy, controlled directly from Moscow. Hundreds of its members worked as spies for the Soviet Union, their “Communist Motherland”. The party chief, Earl Browder, knowingly assisted Soviet spies. Thus, CPUSA membership on the part of US Government employees was a significant security risk.
US administration was well aware of this. In 1945., soon after end of the war, Igor Guzenko – a code clerk for the GRU – defected to Canada. He brought with him GRU documents supporting his claims about Soviet espionage. At first, Canadian authorities paid no attention; but, eventually, numerous Canadian Communists were tried, convicted, and incarcerated for espionage, including a Communist Party Member of Parliament. Guzenko also provided information regarding atomic bomb espionage, and claimed that an assistant to the US secretary of state was a GRU agent. And in October 1945., Elizabeth Bentley approached FBI. She had been running a network of sources for Soviet intelligence, and provided FBI with evidence of more than 80 Soviet spies in the US – many of whom she knew personally. Julius Rosenberg and Alger Hiss were both identified thanks to her. Chambers testified under oath that he personally knew Hiss to be a GRU agent in the 1930s. Hede Massing (“Redhead”), another Soviet agent turned state’s evidence, similarly testified under oath that she personally knew Hiss to be a Soviet agent. Chambers produced his “life preserver,” copies of stolen State Department documents, some written in Hiss’s handwriting and some typed on Hiss’s personal typewriter.
But this information only came to light after the 1995. declassification of the Vernona project, a secret wartime project to read coded Soviet diplomatic messages. Most of the history had been written without it, and even nowadays the media and the academia – both leaning far to the Left – like to pretend that it does not exist. As a result, the general public is still served the shallow and completely falsified image of a paranoid old fool of a senator chasing imaginary Communists.
Outright spies were not the only problem McCarthy was investigating. Traitors were widespread in the very core of the US political establishment. The pro-Communist group in the US State Department had surrendered to every demand of USSR at Yalta and Potsdam, and promoted the Communist cause in China until Communism threatened to take over the entirety of Asia. Harry Hopkins, Roosevelt’s closest advisor who lived in the White House, had regular contacts with the Soviet intelligence, and helped bring about the disastrous Yalta and Pottsdam agreements. The Morganthau Plan, to prevent German reconstruction and starve the Germans to make them desperate enough to go communist, was the product of Laughlin Currie and Harry Dexter White at the Treasury Department.
Harry Truman himself was pro-Communist, and immediately disawoved Churchill following latter’s 1946. “Iron Curtain” speech. In fact, Truman invited Joseph Stalin to come to Fulton and give a speech presenting his side of the story, going so far as to offer the battleship Missouri to fetch the genocidal tyrant. Truman, of course, soon started – or rather, started pretending to – adress the communist threat. He did start the Truman Doctrine, the Marshall Plan and the NATO – but he also called the investigation of Alger Hiss “a red herring”, causing suspicion that the government was not really adressing the communist threat.
Senator Joe McCarthy exploited this suspicion. He was correct about both the nature and the scope of the problem. John E. Peurifoy countered McCarthy by stating that the government had failed to find a communist despite investigating 16 000 employees in three years, yet the Vernona documents indicate presence of at least dozen Soviet agents in the State Department alone. This does not include people pushing for acceptance of Communism, such as Communist Party of the USA, or the mainstream media. It is these people McCarthy wanted to remove from the government employ.
After Truman let Soviet tyranny take over the Eastern Europe, emigre populations went up in the arms. But in the eyes of the celebrity liberalism, those up in arms about the government’s acceptance of communist ambition were the unappetizing people of the dull world of the lower middle class – mentally challenged morons with no understanding of the higher ideals. Elites of the Hollywood, Cambridge and the liberal-leftist think-thanks cared not for the middle class, or their yapping about the Yalta, Katyn forrest and Bleiburg. Even after the dismantling of the Nazi concentration camps, the Gulag system grew, but the Western liberals did not care. And the Soviet spies were still present in the US Government in 1950.: Solomon Adler was still employed at the treasury department in 1950., but as furor over McCarthy’s efforts swelled, he fled to the Communist China. William Remington, working for the Tennesse Valley Authority, was an active Communist and the Soviet spy. Annie Lee Moss was also a member of the CPUSA, but in 1950. she obtained a post as a code clerk for the US Army Signal Corps and was regularly handling sensitive materials. She was still at that position when McCarthy investigated her in 1954. Frank Coe, who had helped retard the US aid to Chang Kai Shek, worked for the International Monetary Fund in 1950. And IMF itself was founded by his former superior at the Treasury Department, Harry Dexter White, who was also a Soviet agent. In 1958., Coe moved permanently to Mao’s China.
This espionage was a massive problem. Substantial amounts of classified information were stolen and transmitted to the Soviets, including from Fort Monmouth – a network of advanced R&D labs. An East German defector, a technician named Harald Buettner, signed a notarized statement swearing that, when employed at a Soviet scientific installation in 1950, he had witnessed stolen material from Fort Monmouth. Subsequent to McCarthy’s hearings, a Soviet defector (“Andrivye”) informed congressional investigators that vast amounts of information pertaining to U.S. radar had been smuggled into Soviet hands, largely from Monmouth. Finally, a U.S. Army Intelligence officer acknowledged that “our latest Signal Corps developments were appearing in the hands of the North Korean Communists”—and, presumably, aiding them in killing U.S. military personnel during the Korean War. Many Monmouth employees were either Communists, former Communists or had contact with Communists. Aaron Coleman was a childhood friend of Julius Rosenberg, admitted having attended a Young Communist League meeting with Rosenberg, and Rosenberg himself claimed to have had contact with him while at Monmouth. Ruth Levine had worked for the Federal Telecommunications Lab – a Monmouth affiliate – for a decade. She held a top-secret security clearance, and had been accused by former Communist John Saunders (and other witnesses) of belonging to a Communist cell at FTL. Questioned at the hearings whether she belonged to the CPUSA or had ever engaged in espionage, Levine refused to answer, consistently pleading the Fifth Amendment. And they were merely two of many security risks identified in McCarthy hearings.
When McCarthy and his allies started to demand testimony from the alleged communists about the real but as of yet undocumented infiltration, liberals denounced them for the “star chamber” tactics. But the danger was real, and the communists poisoned the civil rights movement of 1950s. It also poisoned the American Left and Left in general – modern Leftists are Communists, down to intolerance and penchant for big government.
McCarthy’s own suspicions were based on far more than just reasonable paranoia. He was, in fact, receiving a great deal of information from his friend, the FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. One of Hoover’s agents William Sullivan later admitted… “We were the ones that made the McCarthy hearings possible. We fed McCarthy all the material he was using.”. And this information was not inaccurate.
McCarthy began his investigations against Communism on 9th February 1950, when he spoke at a Republican Women’s Club in West Virginia, at which he said that there were at least 57 known Communists in the US State Department, and that the State Department knew it. Contrary to the common narrative, McCarthy was in fact a man of principles. In 1949 McCarthy had taken up the cause of German POWs held for allegedly gunning-down American prisoners during the so-called Malmédy Massacre. McCarthy exposed the fact that the Germans had had their POW status revoked so that the Geneva Convention did not protect them, and that they were being tortured to extract confessions. This already made him the target of the establishment.
It was the Senate which insisted that McCarthy make the names of the 57 subversives public, contrary to McCarthy’s own beliefs – yet it is McCarthy who ended up being damned as the man who destroyed the innocents with public question. Senator Herbert Lehman had behind him the power of the entire already Leftist establishment – the Federal administration, Wall Street banksters and the mainstream media, and he himself had marriage ties among the banking dynasties, marrying Edith Louise Altschul, the daughter of the head of the New York branch of Lazard Frères, the Paris-based banking house. McCarthy stood fearless and alone, but was in the end removed.
Senator Flanders, who introduced the death blow to McCarthy, was a Republican indistrialist and banker. He pushed the line of the US Establishment, which held that fight against Communism has to be focused on stopping the Soviet expansion. This was the case ever since Stalin had foiled the US proposition to create a ‘New World Order’ immediately after WWII, via the United Nations and the ‘Baruch Plan’ for the internationalisation of atomic energy. But while US Establishment was anti-Soviet, it was not anti-Communist: in fact, it sought to recruit influential anti-Soviet leftists. This effort was undertaken by CIA with backing by the bankers, particularly Rockefellers, and under the banner of Congress for Cultural Freedom. It were the bankers who were McCarthy’s greatest opponents.
Flanders had been president of the Boston Federal Reserve Bank for two years prior to being elected Senator for Vermont. In 1942 he was appointed to the Committee for Economic Development, which was established to formulate US post-war economic policy, including the role of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. In other words, he was in charge of establishing an essentially Marxist post-war world order.
Overall, people opposed to McCarthy were groups which eventually became modern-day Progressives: Socialists / Marxists combined with the big business and capital. What these groups have in common is that they oppose nationalism and free markets, and want central control over the markets and life in general. Both Flanders and Lehman were also members of the Council on Foreign Relations, and Flanders was also a member of the Business Advisory Council. Other CFR study group members included Lauchlin Currie and Benjamin V. Cohen both from the US State Department, Asia expert Professor Owen Lattimore, and economist Leo Pasvolsky, special assistant for post-war planning to the US Secretary of State.
The anti-American individuals and associations which McCarthy targeted were not Soviet agents, but were rather bankster scions. Stalin had in fact supported Chank Kai-Shek up until his final defeat, while the US establishment and banksters supported Mao’s Communists. While there indeed was the Communist – Soviet infiltration of the US establishment, it was a minor threat compared to the indigenous leftists and banksters who aimed to subvert the US policy and politics towards Marxist goals. The abandonment of Chiang Kai-shek by denying military support was the product of “China Hands” led by John Stewart Service, John Patton Davies, and Lattimore. They had started activism even during World War II., when Patrick Hurley clamed that the Chinese Communists were “not real Communists”. Joseph Stillwell repeatedly claimed that the Communists were doing more than the Nationalists against the Japanese, despite the fact that the latter had ten times more casualties. John Service praised the Communists and claimed that the CPC were “democratic reformers” and criticized the Nationalist government as “fascist”, “undemocratic” and “feudal”, while praising the Communists as “progressive” and “democratic”. Journalist Edgar Snow modified his report in accordance to Chinese Party’s wishes, disseminating Communist propaganda. US Ambassador to China Clarence Gauss recommended the United States “pull up the plug and let the whole Chinese Government go down the drain”. As a result of the China Hands’ activities, US sent aid to the Chinese Communists during the war. Another group was the Cambridge Five, which had infiltrated primarily London, but also Washington.
Reed Irvine, chairman of Accuracy in Media, told how he himself had been a leftist in his early career. He had been against McCarthy, but McCarthy’s speeches had made him think and start to read “evidence that I had avoided.” He described how during his military career as a Marine officer and later in Japan with the U.S. occupation he had never hidden his leftist views and later had even been offered a job at the CIA. Irvine argued that real communists were only in the hundreds, but that thousands of leftists, such as he, all feared McCarthy and had wanted him discredited. Big media, the academic world and the financial institutions were all extremely leftist.
McCarthy signed his own death sentence when he steered too close to the center of the leftist-bankster structure, by investigating Cord Meyer, John J. McCloy and Robert T. Stevens. Stevens was Secretary of the Army at a time when McCarthy was involved in his final campaign before his silencing; an investigation into Communist activities in the military. Stevens of J. P. Stevens & Co., Charles E. Wilson of General Motors as Secretary of Defence, and George M. Humphrey of M. A. Hanna Co., as Treasury Secretary, had been elevated to these posts after a meeting between Eisenhower, the international bankster Sidney Weinberg, and General Lucius Clay. Those involved were members of the Business Advisory Council (BAC,) Weinberg and Clay being on the executive committee. The BAC had been formed in 1933 to ‘advise’ President Roosevelt on business matters, just as the CFR ‘advised’ on foreign policy. The BAC was the brainchild of Sidney Weinberg of Goldman, Sachs & Co., who recruited most of the key members.
McCarthy’s main target in the Army hearings was Robert T. Stevens, a big player in BAC who had become a Secretary of the Army. This caused BAC to target McCarthy. McCarthy was also getting too close to investigating John J. McCloy, chairman of the CFR, Wall Street lawyer, adviser to Presidents from Roosevelt to Reagan, Military Governor and US High Commissioner of post-war West Germany, chairman of the Chase National then the Chase Manhattan Bank. The New York Times wrote of McCloy… “Between times and often concurrently, he was board chairman of the Ford Foundation, chairman of the powerful Council on Foreign Relations and board chairman of a dozen or so other entities, including the Salk Institute and of E. R. Squibb & Sons. As a lawyer, he represented scores of corporate clients, including 23 oil companies dealing with the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC.) Mr. McCloy was chairman of so many boards and had his hands in so many ventures that the political writer Richard Rovere once proposed that he was the informal ‘chairman of the Establishment,’ a group that ‘fixes major goals and constitutes itself a ready pool of manpower for the more exacting labors of leadership.’ McCloy came to McCarthy’s attention when his committee began investigating communist influences in occupied Germany under McCloy’s authority.”.
Some questioned by the McCarthy committe declined to answer or were evasive. Also investigated was Cord Meyer, a Zionist-CIA operative who was responsible for special operations involving recruiting and using anti-Stalinist Leftists. Meyer had recruited for the CIA-sponsored “New Left revolution”, and also was responsible for subverting thousands of women for the bankster-sponsored feminist movement.
McCarthy correctly described CIA as a “communist sinkhole”. So-called “communism fighter”, Cord Meyer, had already been considered a Communist by the FBI, but was protected by the CIA, which refused to allow FBI to interrogate him. In 1953., McCarthy stated he intended exposing a hundred Communists in the CIA, and one of the first was to be Cord Meyer.
The bankster-owned media was also outraged when McCarthy dared to denounce one of their manufactured heroes as a traitor. During a long speech on the Senate floor, McCarthy exposed George Marshall’s pattern of “mistakes”: the Pearl Harbor “surprise attack”, the mismanagement of WWII, the loss of Eastern Europe to Stalin, and the 1949 loss of China to Mao’s Reds. Things which Marshall wanted but failed to obtain were even more indicative – and potentially disastrous. Marshall wanted to open the Western Front in Europe in 1942., and it was he who fought the British desire to advance from Italy into the eastern plains of Europe ahead of the Russians. At Tehran, Marshall openly made common cause with Stalin. He also induced Roosevelt to bring Russia into war against Japan, which had the effect of handing China to the Soviets, and shaped US’ China policy which pushed China solidly into Communist block (among other things, by denying Nationalists the vital military supplies). McCarthy also hinted that General Eisenhower was in league with Marshall and mocked Marshall’s media-created hero status: “…Marshall, who, by the alchemy of propaganda, became the ‘greatest living American’ and the recently proclaimed master of global strategy.”.
This immediately resulted in a media smear against McCarthy, launched under the direction of Frank Wisner, the Zionist head of the CIA’s Office of Policy Coordination. The smears against McCarthy had already been launched by the CIA-connected The Washington Post, which was run by Katherine Meyer Graham – daughter of the international bankster, Eugene Meyer. Her husband, Philip, was a CIA operative. Her biographer Deborah Davis wrote: “Katharine’s husband, Philip Graham, publisher of the Post until his suicide in 1963 also up until that year served as director of the CIA’s Project Mockingbird, whose object was to infiltrate the corporate news media. The CIA apparently bought around 600 journalists. Philip Graham boasted that “you could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple of hundred dollars a month.”.
Graham’s paper coined the derogatory term “McCarthysm”. While conceding that the Communist Party had “…succeeded in establishing a surprising network of infiltrators and even spies”, The Washington Post had already in 1947 started attacking the pre-McCarthy House Committee on Un-American Activities. The reason for that is obvious, as one thing the banksters feared (and fear) the most was not McCarthy’s attack on Soviet spies and agents, but rather that the American nationalism will be generated as a by-product, undermining the proposed globalist New World Order.
As a result, Phil Graham was antagonistic from the very beginning of McCarthy’s investigations in early 1950s. This was nothing but reflection of the attitude of the CIA-bankster axis. The term “McCarthysm” was coined by Herbert Block, the chief editorial cartoonist of the Washington Post for 55 years. Block won three Pullitzer prizes, a Presidential Medal of Freedom and a title of Doctor of Arts from Harvard University.
The other bankster-media flagship, The New York Times, also did not neglect its duty in smearing McCarthy. Its attacks on McCarthy far outdid whatever McCarthy himself did. Kamp stated that The New York Times had described McCarthy as a “traducer of reputations and mud-slinger extraordinary,” in its issue of 10th July 1952. Later it was published that McCarthy “preys on fear, he stirs up hatred… via the route of wild charges gross distortions and assorted form of demagoguery.” As Kamp commented, this was “…pure propaganda. It included not a name or fact.”. But this type of nonsense was fairly typical then, and it is typical today as well when discussing McCarthy.
By contrast, one of McCarthy’s prime subjects of interest, professor Owen Lattimore, was heralded as a hero by The Times. His book, Ordeal by Slander, received a glowing review while McCarthy’s own book, McCarthyism: The Fight for America, was blacklisted by The Times, as were all other books by McCarthy’s publisher, Devin-Adair. Lattimore had been Roosevelt’s key advisor on China policy, and essentially handed China to the Communists. Stan Evans showed evidence of 5 000 pages of FBI files on him, evidence which had never been used in the investigations – Tydings Committee ended up exonerating everyone. Lattimore had quite publicly supported the Communism on every turn, even declaring that the Stalin purge trials in Russia “sound like democracy to me”. He likewise urged Washington to abandon China to Communism and to withdraw from Japan and Korea.
Tydings Committe, in fact, didn’t even try. Evans later stated that it was a coverup from start to finish. There was no attempt to get at the facts – a simple denial by the accused was often enough to exonerate him. Most of the hostile questioning was not aimed at the accused, but at McCarthy himself. The Tydings Committe established the pattern. McCarthy would make a claim and then the establishment would investigate McCarthy while obstructing the investigation of his claims at every turn. Congress itself always backed down in any confrontation with the Executive. Only person who took things seriously was J. Edgar Hoover, whose FBI produced large amount of evidence and files on Communist infiltration.
Despite the witch hunt against him, McCarthy continued as a Senator for several more years, during which time he was ostracised and his speeches boycotted in the Senate. As a result of constant stress and physical and mental exhaustion, McCarthy died in 1957. at age of 48.
McCarthy’s investigations into Communism also brought him under attack by Zionists, as they turned up a disproportionate amount of Jewish Communists. This is hardly surprising, as minorities usually lean leftwards: Vladimir Lenin’s father Ilya Ulyanov was of either Chuvash or Mordovian descent, Joseph Stalin’s father was a Georgian, Vladimir Lenin had major Askhenazi Jewish (25%), German (12,5%) and Swedish (12,5%) ancestry, and Karl Marx was an Askhenazi Jew. Josip Broz Tito was half-Croatian and half-Slovene. McCarthy already had experienced Jewish wrath when he spoke out against inhumane treatment of German POWs, and was afraid that he might appear as hunting Jews.
On 10th September 1953., McCarthy’s staff uncovered serious evidence of espionage at Fort Monmouth. It was an extract of a report from J. Edgar Hoover to the head of Army Intelligence. The document mentioned 35 Fort Monmouth employees as security risks, most of them Jews of Russian origin who had been in contact with the atom-bomb spies, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. During the investigation, however, the attention was diverted to nearby Camp Kilmer. This was the case of the Jewish Communist Irving Peress who was an Army dentist who was proved to be not only a member, but also an organiser of Communist groups, and had sworn a false oath upon receiving his officer’s commission. When the matter was exposed, Peress was promoted and given an honourable discharge, thus escaping the jeopardy of a court-martial – and an embarrassment of the Army.
Army attempted to discredit McCarthy by alleging usage of improper pressure. During the hearings, Stevens was the Army’s “star witness”. He stonewalled the subcommittee by giving vague, unresponsive, and often self-contradictory testimony, almost certainly under orders from Eisenhower’s staff. The Army’s case, however, already had been exposed and McCarthy essentially vindicated, when Senator Everett Dirksen, a member of the McCarthy Subcommittee, testified that the Army’s counsel, John Adams and Eisenhower’s administrative assistant Gerald Morgan had approached him on 22nd January 1954, seeking to stifle part of McCarthy’s investigation of the Army.
As the White House had now clearly been implicated in a conspiracy to shield subversion of the government, Eisenhower – to prevent investigation of his own role – issued what became known as the “Iron Curtain” order. He claimed that it was a Constitutional principle that the President could forbid his subordinates from revealing any information to the Congress. At any rate, biased media coverage made the Army-McCarthy hearings a propaganda victory for the pro-Communists. The Army counsel Joseph Welch, through hyperbole and histrionics, managed to convince a large portion of the public that a few peripheral issues he raised during the hearings were serious embarrassments to McCarthy.
By September, most of the supporters had deserted McCarthy, and his Senate colleagues stripped him of his committee chair in November and in December 1954, the Senate voted 67-22 to condemn him for ‘conduct contrary to Senatorial traditions.’ This condemnation permanently ended his effectiveness as a legislator. McCarthy fell ill with hepatitis in late April of 1957, and was taken to Bethesda Naval Hospital, just as his “suicided” mentor, James Forrestal, had been in 1949 when working on an exposé of Soviet espionage rings in the Pentagon and treason in the Truman Administration. As usual for such assisted suicides, McCarthy had begun to recover, but strangely lapsed again on the Communist “Holy Day” of 1st May and died at the early age of 48, the following day, the victim of an apparent poisoning, rumoured to be carbon tetrachloride. The official cause of McCarthy’s death was listed as “inflammation of the liver”.
In conclusion, McCarthy was correct in his beliefs about the Marxist infiltration of the United States. But his direct methods did not work, and in the end he ended up assisting the banksters in introducing Marxism to United States by being turned into a boogeyman by the media and thus poisoning anti-Communism through guilt by association. In the end, he was destroyed because he had become too efficient at exposing the Communist menace and too popular with the public. McCarthy was removed by the mainstream media once he had outlived his usefulness.
Journalists and intellectuals attack McCarthy mainly because they themselves are typically ideological Marxists. They were either supporters of communism or sympathetic to it. Professor Joel Kovel (Bard University) states that “anti-Communism is an exploitation of the deep structures of racism for the purpose of managing threats to capitalist rule”. According to Kovel, it was not communism but rather American Cold War anticommunism that “plunged the world into a nightmare: ‘millions of innocents lie dead, [and] whole societies have been laid to waste'”. American journalists and intellectuals have romanticized socialism and communism so much that they cannot bring themselves to see it as evil; rather, any opponents of Communism are to them themselves evil merely for their opposition to the Communist ideals. They recognize and denounce the murderous totalitarianism of race-based socialism (National Socialism, aka Nazism) yet refuse to do so with the equivalent evils of class-based socialism (Communism).
Today’s world could use another McCarthy. There are Communists under the bed, in the closet, the fridge and everywhere else one can imagine. Members of the CCP are working from Australia to the US and UK. There are 79 000 Communist Party branches inside various Western companies, and 1,95 million Communist Party members. But to the prophets of Diversity, this is hardly a cause for an alarm bell. And of course, there is no touching the real prophets of Marxism: globalist capitalists who do everything they can to destroy nationalism and subsidiarity in the name of global capital, unlimited profit and control. Rule of law has long died and been buried.
