THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH:

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

FIGHTING FOR “THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS”

.
.
.
Over the course of a year, I, like many people, donate money to various good causes and charitable organizations. There is one, however, that I enjoy helping out so much that I actually look forward to each Christmas season when I will be able to send them money again.

I am referring to the Santa Monica Nativity Scenes Committee which manages the construction and placement of that city’s Christmas crèche display. This tradition was started in 1953 and it continues to this day where Wilshire Boulevard ends at Palisades Park which is located just north of the world famous Santa Monica Pier in Southern California.

What makes Santa Monica’s Nativity display so unique is “the number of booths which present the drama of Christ’s birth.” Whereas most Nativity displays in other cities have a single scene depicting the birth of Jesus, in Santa Monica, there are a total of 14 booths which can be viewed in sequence as one drives south along Ocean Avenue. The first scene shows ‘The Annunciation’, when the Virgin Mary met Elizabeth and John the Baptist leapt in the womb, and the story continues to unfold, ending with the Holy Family’s return to Nazareth. The classic Nativity scene which shows the baby Jesus in the manger surrounded by Joseph, Mary, angels, shepherds, cows and sheep is the seventh of the fourteen scenes in Palisades Park.

The Santa Monica Nativity Scenes Committee has been dogged by a variety of problems and forced to overcome a number of challenges through the decades. There was the issue of Proposition 13 in 1978; a threatened lawsuit from the un-American Madalyn Murray O’Hair and her un-American ‘American Atheists’ organization and, of course, that communist front organization the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU); and there was the dark days of financial crisis beginning in 1979. But one of the most frightening challenges came in 2002 and the proposal of a new city ordinance which would have banned the Nativity Scenes from being constructed in a public park. What made this particularly unnerving was Santa Monica’s notorious reputation for Liberalism. Back when I lived there, it was often referred to by conservatives as “The Socialist Republic Of Santa Monica” and “The People's Republic Of Santa Monica.”

I and other Nativity Scene supporters had received a November 24, 2002 letter from Committee Co-Chairman Reverend Clarence Crites which stated in part:

You may have recently heard a few rumors that the city was planning to deny The Nativity Scenes Committee a permit to use the Palisades Park for erection of its Nativity Scenes. We are happy to report that we were given a reprieve for this year so that the City Council could have time to more closely examine the language of the Ordinance that would curtail park usage. It appears that the Council is willing to take a more favorable stance for us on the issue in light of the 49-year pageant history. While we have the green light this year, it is still an issue that must be decided for next year and all further years. Your favorable thoughts expressed to the members of the City Council, the City Attorney, and the City Manager could be a helpful influence in their decision.

I immediately responded by writing letters to City Attorney Marsha Jones Moutrie and City Manager Susan E. McCarthy. Here is what I wrote to them:

When my Dad passed away in 1996, my cousin Steve wrote the following in a sympathy card: “Chuck was one of the nicest people that I have ever been acquainted with. My fondest memory of him was when we would drive around Santa Monica on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa Claus to visit ... that was about thirty years ago but I still remember it well.”

My cousin was referring to our yearly tradition of going to see the Santa Monica Nativity Scenes in Palisades Park while “Santa” was visitng my Grandparents’ house with a few early presents for the young kids.

The Santa Monica Nativity Scenes hold such a special place in my personal history that, although I moved to Arizona in 1992, I still look forward to donating several hundred dollars to the Nativity Scenes Committee every year in December. It is an important part of how I keep the true meaning of Christmas alive in my heart amidst all of the colorful commercialism.

The Santa Monica Nativity Scenes are not just a significant part of my past but also a rich tradition that has bound several generations together, becoming a notable aspect of Santa Monica’s identity every Christmas.

I understand that this tradition is now in jeopardy because a very small minority are offended by Santa Monica’s custom. What a shame it will be if the vast majority of the city’s citizens are deprived of this symbol which is so unique that it was alluded to in the song ‘Christmas In Los Angeles’, penned by the Disney songwriting team of Sherman and Sherman and recorded by Lawrence Welk.

As for the legal grounds for permitting a display of this nature on public property, I am sure that you are well aware of the fact that neither the phrase nor the concept of “separation of church and state” exists in a single document of our country’s Founding Era. In fact, in the case of The Church Of The Holy Trinity v. United States (1844), the Supreme Court ruled that “our civilisations and our institutions are emphatically Christian”, and John Jay, the very first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court called America “our Christian nation.”

I do not believe that the Nativity Scenes are antithetical to America’s Constitution, and therefore I am enclosing a couple of relevant tracts on this contemporary controversy written by David Barton who is an expert on it. I hope that you will review them in light of the impact your future decision will have on this touching tradition that we have literally grown up with.

If you should wish to investigate this subject in greater detail, I cannot over emphasize the importance of Mr. Barton’s thoroughly documentd and brilliantly presented book ‘Original Intent: The Courts, The Constitution, And Religion’ which stands as a rock-solid testimony to the Christian bedrock that undergirds our Nation.

Or, perhaps you may wish to contact Mr. Barton personally. He has written numerous position papers for members of Congress on this very issue, and I am sure he would welcome the opportunity to consult with you on this. (800) 873-2845

I and a great many others hope you will be guided by the Spirit of Truth when considering this question. I trust that you will represent the bulk of your fellow citizens well.

I thank you for your time and your consideration.

Most Sincerely,


~ Stephen T. McCarthy

P.S. –- According to the largest survey of religion in America, a 1990 poll commissioned by the Graduate School of the City University of New York, 86.5 percent of Americans identify themselves as Christians.

I soon received responses from both Moutrie and McCarthy, and the latter wrote: “As we evaluate appropriate uses of City Park space and First Amendment protections we are mindful of community sentiment.”

Happily, one year later, in November of 2003, I received a letter from Co-Chairmen of the Santa Monica Nativity Scenes Committee, Clarence Crites and Hunter Jameson. They wrote:

Dear Friends Of The Santa Monica Nativity Scenes,

Thanks to our gracious Lord and your prayers and financial support, the Santa Monica Nativity Scenes, a Christmas tradition since 1954, will take place again this year.

On September 9, the City Council passed without opposition an ordinance that put the display on firm legal ground for this year and the future. The Nativity Scenes Committee worked to bring about this result, and we thank God, scenes supporters, City Attorney Marsha Moutrie and the City Council for the outcome. …

The Nativity Scenes provide a clearly visible reminder to Santa Monica residents and visitors of what Christmas really is. The scenes are a witness of God’s love for man as demonstrated in sending His Son, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, to live as one of us, starting as a baby. …

Thank you for your assistance in the past and for your help this year to ensure that the true meaning of Christmas continues to shine forth in Santa Monica.

If anyone is seeking a grand way to help spread the true meaning of Christmas, I can think of few organizations working to do that which are more worthy of a financial donation than is the Santa Monica Nativity Scenes Committee. This unique Christmas display must remain entirely funded by private contributions, and the Committee certainly puts those contributions toward a great, time-honored tradition that stands out like a brand new Holy Bible surrounded by soccer balls, Chinese-made Barbies, Transformers action figures, and video games underneath an artificial “Holiday Tree” on “Season’s Greetings Day.”

A CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION "MADE IN CHINA" ?

.
One of my yearly Christmas activities is asking you all to join my Brother and me by Making A Wish For Tiny Tim on Christmas Day. I have another tradition which, while just as serious, is of a more important nature. And that is: I feel the need to remind everyone that celebrating the birth of our Savior at Christmas shouldn’t mean that we also line the pockets of nations that have murdered and persecuted their own people and people of other religious faiths.

Unfortunately, a lot of people never give this a thought while Christmas shopping and decorating the house in December. But this Human Rights / Christmas Connection was perhaps never illustrated better than in this true story of Christian persecution which comes from the book “JESUS FREAKS; VOLUME II” by dc Talk and the Voice Of The Martyrs, copyright 2002 by Bethany House Publishers. Please read this short story, give it due consideration, and then ask yourself: Am I really celebrating the true meaning of Christmas in buying my loved one a gift made in China? . . .

Pastor Li De Xian speaks about suffering from experience. The man who said “I will preach until I die” has stuck to his word. Despite continued pressure from the Public Security Bureau (PSB), Pastor Li refuses to miss a service unless he is in prison, or change his message of salvation through Jesus Christ.

During the period of October 2000 to May 2001, he was arrested fifteen times for preaching in his unregistered house church in Guangzhou. He has been arrested so many times during the past two years that he has lost count. During one recent detention, jailers tied his arms and legs together and chained his arms and legs to a bedpost for three days. When they finally released him from this torture, he was forced to work on an assembly line in the prison factory PUTTING BULBS INTO STRINGS OF CHRISTMAS LIGHTS TO SEND TO AMERICA! He and the others had a quota of between 4 and 5 thousand bulbs a day. … Li has seen imprisoned Christians tortured so badly that their buttocks bled through their clothing. He spent 15 days in prison on this particular occasion.

Yet rather than this experience teaching him to be afraid, it has taught him to be prepared. He travels at all times with a small black duffel bag that he keeps packed with a blanket and a change of clothes – the things he will need for prison whenever he is arrested next. “Arrests will come at any time, but we are not afraid, as we have prepared ourselves, and we have not done any crimes.” Whenever possible he will spend his time in prison reading THE BIBLE, something he manages to smuggle in with amazing regularity.

His wife, Zhao Xia, strongly supports him in this and refuses to worry. “God will take care of him,” she says, “so there is no need to worry.”

“Don’t feel sorry for us,” Zhao Xia says of their lifestyle. “At least we are constantly reminded that we are in a spiritual war. We know for whom we are fighting. We know who the enemy is. And we are fighting. Perhaps we should pray for you Christians outside of China. In your leisure, in your affluence, in your freedom, sometimes you no longer realize that you are in spiritual warfare.”

One year, I included a copy of this story in the Christmas cards I sent out to friends and family. My Ma tried to persuade me not to send the story, fearing that I would just bring everyone’s Christmas celebration down. But I felt it was too important that people be reminded of what’s going on in “the real world” at this time of celebrating in America. I included the story again with my Christmas cards the following year or so, and have since begun posting it on my Blog.

This Christmastime, as we shop for gifts that express our love to others, let’s keep in mind that China embraces Communism, a failed economic/social system responsible for murdering approximately 100 million human beings worldwide and torturing and starving many millions more. Perhaps we shouldn’t monetarily support nations with the worst human rights violations. Speaking for myself, I would rather receive NO Christmas gift at all than to receive one made in China. And I would prefer to hang NO Christmas lights on my house (or tree) than to hang lights that might very well have been strung together for my enjoyment by a Christian in another country who has been forced into slave labor due to his faith in Jesus Christ. I don’t need blood lights shining a hypocritical Christmas message into the night from around my roof.

Below is a list of some of the places guilty of the worst human rights abuses. I boycott all of these sources:

Afghanistan; Algeria; Azerbaijan; Bangladesh; Bhutan; Brunei; Chechnya; China [incl. Hong Kong & Tibet]; Colombia; Comoro Islands; Cuba; Egypt; Guinea; India; Indonesia; Iran; Iraq; Kuwait; Laos; Libya; Malaysia; Morocco; Myanmar; Nepal; Nigeria; North Korea; Oman; Pakistan; Qatar; Saudi Arabia; Somalia; Sri Lanka; Sudan; Syria; Tajrkistan; Tunesia; Turkey; Turkmenistan; United Arab Emirates; Uzbekistan; Vietnam; Yemen.

Enjoy Christmas but please buy responsibly.

ATTENTION: THIS E-MAIL JUST IN FROM THE NORTH POLE!

.
[From the STMcC archive; 2005, November 13th.]

A Review Of The Compact Disc . . .

THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC OF JOHNNY MATHIS:
A PERSONAL COLLECTION
.

.
Thanks to the magic of modern communications, I am able to share with you this E-mail I recently received from Santa Claus in response to a letter I sent him. I copied and pasted it below for your perusal.

Deer Stephen:

I thank you for the kind letter and many compliments. To allay your fears: no, I do not suspect you of "kissing up" to me (as you so delicately phrased it).

I have looked over your Christmas Wish List and regret to inform you that we have never made those types of things up here at my workshop. You'll need to seek out another source. We're a little more "family" oriented, don't you know-ho-ho?

I can, however, happily fulfill your request for my most highy recommended Holiday music. I'll be brief beclaus - I mean, because - this is my busy time of year, what with overseeing the work at the elves toy factory and coal mine, and with the Missus constantly shoving food at me and insisting that I "Eat! Eat!"

Mrs. Claus and I have always been partial to the JOHNNY MATHIS renditions of most Christmas standards. The Missus says they're "Wonderful! Wonderful!" And though It's Not For Me To Say, Chances Are you'll enjoy them, too. Little Johnny's voice is a "gift" that originates from regions even higher than the North Pole!

THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC OF JOHNNY MATHIS: A PERSONAL COLLECTION is a readily available single-disc compilation of songs personally selected by Johnny from his previously released Christmas albums.

There are a few songs that were regrettably overlooked - most notably, his emotionally stirring, O HOLY NIGHT from his first release, 'MERRY CHRISTMAS.' Leaving that off nearly landed Johnny on my "Bad Boys" list! And there's no I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, nor THE CHRISTMAS SONG. That's ho-ho-horrible!

Missing from the album 'FOR CHRISTMAS' is Johnny's spirited JINGLE BELL ROCK. Also, GOD REST YE MERRY GENTLEMEN which - while too slow - concludes with two indescribably joyful notes!

I think we can both agree that JINGLE BELLS is overrated beclaus - I mean, because - it is too simplistic and has been played to death. But Stephen, did you ever hear Johnny's version from the 'CHRISTMAS EVE WITH JOHNNY MATHIS' album? It's even superior to the rendition that the Jingle Dogs barked out many moons ago! It has a marvelously updated arrangement that makes me want to stuff the Missus into the sleigh and go for a Winter ride. Alas, we can't BOTH fit into the thing side-by-side anymore. But then JINGLE BELLS isn't included on this disc either.

To really do Johnny's Christmas music justice, this should have been conceived as a two-disc set. Nevertheless, what IS included is truly classic Holiday music that's been widely celebrated and publicly played since you were nose-high to an elf. We deerly love it up here at "The Pole." Of course, the elves don't pay much attention to it; they're forever singing their nerve-racking elf songs. But my reindeer team just can't get enough of it - especially Rudolph! You should see his face light up every time the Missus puts it on! Why I even saw it bring a smile to grumpy ol' Blitzen once. (Or else he had gas, and that was only a grimace.) You really should own all of Johnny's Christmas music. But if you're inclined to buy just one Christmas music CD, this disc is the way to go-ho-ho.

Well, I'd better close now beCAUSE we're way behind schedule as it is, and I've got trouble brewing over at the toy shop: two elves recently got caught sniffing snow; one elf ran off to become Denver's most diminutive dentist; another one has a ribbon fetish, and yet another is in therapy because she insists that she's a reindeer. And the whole lot of them are threatening to unionize! Yeah, ol' Santa's got his troubles, too.

I hope this letter has been some help to you. Stephen, be a good boy between now and December 24th, and perhaps you won't be unwrapping another lump of coal this year.

- Saint Nicholas

P.S. - Please don't forget to leave some milk and cookies this time. A heavy man gets hungry flying around the world in one night, and Mrs. Claus says that I must "Eat! Eat!"

ANNOUNCEMENT: ‘FERRET-FACED FASCIST FRIENDS’ RECEIVES MAJOR AWARD!

.

.
It is my great pleasure to inform everyone not reading this Blog that ‘FERRET-FACED FASCIST FRIENDS’ is the recipient of the prestigious MITIBA. As I’m sure everyone is already aware, MITIBA is pronounced “MY-TEA-BUH” and it is the acronym for one of the most respected honors in Blogland: the ‘Most Informative Totally Ignored Blog Award.’

I was informed just this morning that ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’ had been nominated by Mr. Frank X. Farrell of the MITIBA board of directors and that it won the award after receiving unanimous approval by the MITIBA election committee.

Unfortunately, the MITIBA is just an honorary thang – I mean, it doesn’t come with a cash award, a gift certificate, or even a case of Mad Dog 20/20. In fact, there isn’t even a trophy to display alongside my old Little League ribbons. Nevertheless, I consider it a great honor to have had my Blog named as a MITIBA winner; I feel quite proud of this accomplishment and I hereby vow to continue to conduct myself personally and continue to direct this Blog in a way that is synonymous with the high standards set by former MITIBA recipients.

I wish to thank Mr. Frank X. Farrell and the entire MITIBA election committee for bestowing upon ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’ and myself this illustrious award. And, naturally, I wish to thank YOU, my nonreaders, for making it all possible.

Sincerely Grateful,
~ Stephen T. McCarthy
Benevolent Dictator Of ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’

DA DANGEROUSLY DUPED DEMOCRATS

.
Idealists are the easiest folks to dupe because they want so badly to believe that their utopian vision is attainable in “this world.” (I myself was once an idealist, but education and the wisdom that comes with age cured my illness.) Unfortunately, this also makes idealists some of the most dangerous citizens amongst us. They are just so susceptible to propaganda. And the Democrat Party (which long ago was taken over from within by Marxists and their fellow travelers) with its handmaiden, the liberal media, is unequaled when it comes to propagandizing the idealist dreamers in America.

The idealist learns just enough to recognize that the government is corrupted by Corporations and Big Buck Politicians; that it doesn’t give a rat’s patoot for the common man. And then being bombarded by sound bites from the media about how the Republican Party is dominated by these corporations and Big Buck Politicians, it’s easy to understand why most of the idealists eventually align themselves with the Democrat Party -- which likewise, but unbeknownst to the idealist, is dominated by corporations and Big Buck Politicians.

The bottom line is that, for both of the major political parties in the United States, it’s all about monopoly and the power that comes with it – the power to dictate life to the rest of society and to ensure their own station at the top of the political food chain.

The Republicans usually say the right things (with no intention of instituting the Constitutional principles they claim to embrace), and they aren’t too squeamish about being associated with success in the business world, which means a kinship with corporations and Big Buck Handlers.

The idealists, naturally, are repulsed by this and take hook, line and sinker the bait that the Marxists masquerading as “Democrats fighting for the little guy” have set for them. The next thing you know, the idealists are standing shoulder to shoulder against the Republicans, in lockstep with the Democrat Party, and are unwittingly destroying everything that once made America great.

In putting together my last Blog Bit here at Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends, I reflected upon three quotes that were called to mind and I thought that they really ought to be more widely known by the American public. And so, I give you three quotes pertaining to da dangerously duped Democrats:
.
[Quoting from the December 1937 issue of the ‘Communist International’:] . . .
“The Chinese Communist Party is guided by the new line of tactics of the Seventh Congress of the Comintern, and the historic report made by Comrade Dimitrov.”

This historical report, I should here explain, was the one in which Dimitrov laid down the trojan horse tactic for Communists everywhere in the world. They were instructed at this Comintern Congress to get influence inside the liberal movements everywhere by pretending to be democrats in order to destroy the non-Communist world from within.
~ Senator Joseph McCarthy
From The Congressional Record
1950, March 30th

Our task is to build an all-people’s front… with special emphasis on mobilization of the working class and the trade union movement on all levels, but especially the grass roots. … This front must include Americans who are racially oppressed and discriminated against because of their nationality, the professionals, intellectuals, farmers, youth, women, senior citizens, small and medium-size business people… a mass wave that will mainly express itself through the Democratic Party…
~ Gus Hall
Head of the Communist Party U.S.A.
1981, December

What America has most to fear is not the Communists either at home or abroad, but our own good-hearted, well-meaning fellow citizens of the liberal persuasion, whose unintended effect has been to sap the survival powers of free societies everywhere.
~ William Rusher
Former Special Counsel to the Internal Security Subcommittee of the United States Senate, 1956 – 1957
From his book ‘Special Counsel’, 1968

Vladimir Lenin’s basic plan was this: First, we will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia. Then we will encircle the United States, which will be the last bastion of capitalism. We will not have to attack. It will become so rotten from within that it will fall like an overripe fruit into our hands.

And who, in 2009, is prepared to argue that Lenin was wrong? America has indeed become rotten from within; rotten spiritually, rotten politically and rotten socially. And America is indeed falling before her conquerors like an overripe fruit.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt your chances of conquest if you can place Marxists and other Socialists calling themselves “Democrats” into the U.S. Congress, on the Supreme Court, and in the White House.

But voting for Republicans is not the answer, for they too are part of the problem. Voting for nothing but authentic
“Constitutionalists” is the only medicine for our country’s maladies.

THE “REAL MAN” SERIES: #12) SENATOR JOSEPH McCARTHY

.
Senator Joseph McCarthy was born on November 14, 1908. Of course, he wasn’t a Senator when he was born; that came later. But to honor the Great Patriot on his birthday, I have recreated below a book list which I originally put together for that lying, liberal, jackass-infested website Amazon.com – the dirty, rotten scoundrels!

Believe me, it took A LOT of time-consuming work to transport all of this information here to my Blog (well over three hours), so I hope you like it, my ferret-faced fascist friends.

THE “REAL MAN” SERIES: #12) SENATOR JOSEPH McCARTHY

[From the STMcC archives; 2007, June 22.]

"I do not think we need fear too much about the Communists dropping atomic bombs on Washington. They would kill too many of their friends that way."
~ Senator Joseph McCarthy
The Congressional Record; June 14, 1951

Do you think you know the truth about SENATOR JOSEPH McCARTHY? Read some of the following books. The man was demonized unmercifully by the mass media and even many of his fellow Senators. No man has been more unjustly vilified in the United States than McCarthy. Even Jesus still fares better in America. That McCarthy was able to absorb the blows to his reputation and continue fighting must have required nearly superhuman strength and will. There is no American Patriot I admire more.

The Senator's enemies included some of the biggest liars, scoundrels, traitors, and accessories to murder in Mankind's history! And McCarthy's enemies were America's enemies, too. After you have looked through this list, please read the surprising and carefully researched James J. Drummey essay, "THE REAL McCARTHY RECORD", by going to the following web address:

From page 273:
One of McCarthy's tactics was to establish guilt by association: to brand as communists people who merely had known a communist or who had agreed with the communists on some issue such as racial equality.

And that's how they brainwash you, folks; it's as easy as THAT! Without independent research, you won't recognize their lies and the manner in which they manipulate your perception.

It is difficult to mark the line beyond which Socialism becomes Communism. Socialism has the same ends as Communism, though with an allegedly democratic approach. Marx did not distinguish between Socialism & Communism. The major distinction as asserted by the Communists, is that they believe in the necessity of a temporary dictatorship...Socialism is basically antithetical to our system.

THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO
By Karl Marx
.

.
The words of KARL MARX from page 22:
"Abolition of the family!"

Why? Because "It Takes A Village", baby! It takes the influence of the State to keep your children brainwashed into the principles of Socialism.

WAS KARL MARX A SATANIST?
By Richard Wurmbrand
.

.
Was Karl Marx a satanist? Uhm... Maybe.
In a poem he wrote: "I wish to avenge myself against the One who rules above."

From his drama Oulanem:
"If there is something which devours, I'll leap within it, though I bring the world to ruins-- The world which bulks between me and the abyss I will smash to pieces with my enduring curses."

MARXISM is the name of his "enduring curse." (Wouldn't he have been the life of a party?)

THE BLACK BOOK OF COMMUNISM: CRIMES, TERROR, REPRESSION
By Kramer and Murphy
.

.
Socialism is good for you. Tell that to a dead man, his starving wife and their suffering children! (This book gives the reader an idea of what McCarthy was fighting to save America from.)

BARBARELLA: QUEEN OF THE GALAXY
Starring Jane Fonda
.

.
HANOI JANE said: "If you understood what Communism was you would pray on your knees that we would someday become communists." But you didn't see her move to Moscow, Beijing, or even Hanoi, did you?

STANISLAW MIKOLAJCZYK, former Prime Minister of Poland said: "Communism is an evil which is embraced only by fools and idealists not under the actual heel of such rule."

IMAGINE
By John Lennon
.

.
John Lennon once said that his song IMAGINE "is virtually a communist manifesto." I guess it didn't bother him much that while he sang "imagine no possessions", for tax purposes he owned a herd of Hereford cattle he had never even seen. I'm OK with the cattle, but I detest the hypocrisy of a wealthy capitalist advocating Socialism for all the "little people" like you and me!

SENATOR JOE McCARTHY
By Richard Rovere
.

.
LENIN said: "We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, scorn and the like, toward those who disagree with us."

ROY COHN said: "Rovere has become a kind of one-man bureau of misinformation on the subject."

THE UNSEEN HAND
By A. Ralph Epperson
.

.
From page 311:
Referring to the 1945 Yalta Conference between Roosevelt and Stalin, on September 23, 1950, McCarthy charged: "Here was signed the death warrant of the young men who are dying today in the hills and valleys of Korea. Here was signed the death warrant of the young men who will die tomorrow in the jungles of Indochina (Vietnam)."

20TH CENTURY HEROES
By The New American Magazine
.

.
From page 170:
JOSEPH McCARTHY said . . .
I thought we were losing to international Communism because of incompetence and stupidity on the part of our planners. I mentioned that to [Secretary of Defense, James] Forrestal. I shall forever remember his answer. He said, "McCarthy, consistency has never been a mark of stupidity. If they were merely stupid they would occasionally make a mistake in our favor."

McCARTHY AND HIS ENEMIES
By Buckley and Bozell
.

.
From page 267:
Since McCarthy's critics pretty well rule the communications industry, they have enmeshed the public in their own hectic confusion."

Originally published in 1954, this remains one of the best, most meticulously researched books into the truth about "McCarthyism."

THE LATTIMORE STORY
By John T. Flynn
.

.
From page 4:
I think it is a fair assumption that Senator McCarthy, a normal American, a newcomer at the time into the field of controversy with the Reds, must have been astounded at the blows that were immediately dealt him, not by the Communist Party openly, but by the New York Times, the New York Herald Tribune, various conservative magazines . . .

WHO PROMOTED PERESS?
By Lionel Lokos
.

.
From page 11:
The sustained repetition of wholly undocumented hearsay, the fantastic propaganda of the Far Left and its liberal friends, have infected all but the staunchest anti-Communists. Some conservative voices have been silent in the face of the most blatant lies about the McCarthy effort. ... We need his courage and dogged persistence in the face of a hostile and bloated propaganda machine.

COVERING McCARTHYISM: HOW THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR HANDLED JOSEPH R. McCARTHY, 1950 - 1954
By Strout
.

.
From page 5 of McCARTHYISM: THE FIGHT FOR AMERICA:
When Tydings made his threat that I had brought on an investigation of myself and not an investigation of Communists in government, I heard a slight commotion at the press table. Glancing around, I saw Richard L. Strout of THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, shaking the hand of Rob Hall of the Communist DAILY WORKER.

McCARTHY
By Roy Cohn
.

.
From page 267:
This was the man McCarthy as I knew him. He was rough-hewn, never managing to throw off his country-boy origins. He was warm and friendly. He took his job seriously but never himself. He would go to great lengths to help those he knew who were in trouble. He had more real personal courage than almost any man I ever knew.

SPECIAL COUNSEL
By William Rusher
.

.
From page 239:
McCarthy "was a thoroughly masculine example of the type called 'black Irish.' His manner was pleasant, soft-spoken, almost shy. Bitterness simply wasn't in character for him. ... At no point did McCarthy recklessly or casually impute Communism to non-Communists who disagreed with him, or whom he personally happened to dislike."

"Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

MAJOR SPEECHES AND DEBATES OF SENATOR JOE McCARTHY, DELIVERED IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE, 1950 - 1951
Reprint from The Congressional Record
.

.
From page 218:
McCARTHY said: “This administration, which has given us this caricature of a war, is now bent on an even worse horror – a phony and fraudulent peace. It is planned by Secretary Marshall and the elegant and alien [Dean] Acheson – Russian as to heart, British as to manner.”

From page 7 of McCARTHYISM: THE FIGHT FOR AMERICA:
Whenever I ask those who object to my methods to name the objectionable methods, again I hear parroted back to me the Communist Daily Worker stock phrase, irresponsible charges and smearing innocent people. But as often as I have asked for the name of a single innocent person who has been smeared or irresponsibly charged, nothing but silence answers.

THE VENONA SECRETS: EXPOSING SOVIET ESPIONAGE AND AMERICA'S TRAITORS
By Herbert Romerstein
.

.
From page 454:
Some of the McCarthy Committee's probes produced important and damning information, such as Communist infiltration of the army and waste and mismanagement in the Voice of America.

JOSEPH McCARTHY: REEXAMINING THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF AMERICA'S MOST HATED SENATOR
By Arthur Herman
.

.
With the decoded Venona material being publicly revealed and proving totally factual McCarthy’s charges that Communists had infiltrated the U.S. Government, the Liberals needed to attack Patriot McCarthy’s reputation from a different angle. Herman’s book did so. It’s a rather clever attempt at “damage control” but you’ll be able to see through it if you’re “smarter than the average bear.”

McCARTHYISM: THE FIGHT FOR AMERICA
By Joseph McCarthy
.

.
From page 27:
In 1946, the Communist-controlled government of Poland requested a $90 million loan from the U.S.A. Ambassador Lane begged the State Department not to grant the loan, pointing out the terroristic activities, the imprisonment of American citizens, and the fact that much of it was slated for the Communist terror police. Dean Acheson ignored Lane's plea and granted the loan.

TREASON: LIBERAL TREACHERY FROM THE COLD WAR TO THE WAR ON TERRORISM
By Ann Coulter
.

.
From page 33:
Dean Acheson, with his fake British accent, his Groton and Yale degrees, was one of McCarthy's favorite targets. He had no use for mincing Ivy League diplomats with Communist partisans on their staff. After Acheson appeared in the Social Pages on a Best Dressed list, McCarthy began referring to him as The Red Dean Of Fashion. Privately, he called Acheson "that striped pants asshole.”

THE NAKED CAPITALIST
By W. Cleon Skousen
.

.
From page 86:
McCarthy was no 'genteel Senatorial sophisticate.' He was primarily an ex-Marine who had seen enough of the subversion and corruption in certain Military / White House / State Department policies to alert him to the fact that there are some very real enemies in the American camp. He didn't care whether they wore striped pants or army uniforms.

REAL MEN DON'T EAT QUICHE
By Bruce Feirstein
.

.
Senator Joseph McCarthy NEVER ate quiche (he couldn't even spell it), but Dean Acheson not only ate the stuff, he bathed in it!

SHEEPSKIN PADS
By Sheepskin Ranch Inc.
.

.
Acheson's policies were responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people through the years. If there is an afterlife where quiche-eating men must drop their striped pants, grasp their ankles knee-deep in sheep dip, and submit to the abuse of degenerate male sheep for 90 minutes a day, 7 days a week, Dean Acheson is surely there!

TRAGEDY & HOPE: A HSITORY OF THE WORLD IN OUR TIME
By Carroll Quigley
.

.
On pages 928 & 929 of his book, Carroll Quigley (a mentor to Bill "It Depends On What The Meaning Of The Word 'Is' Is" Clinton) spewed forth so much invective at McCarthy that I imagine he was frothing at the mouth as he wrote. He probably had to be sedated. But then Quigley supported International Banker-inspired Totalitarian Socialism, so he was naturally anti-McCarthy.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE
By Hellary Clinton
.

.
IT TAKES A VILLAGE IDIOT not to realize to what extent America has been turned away from its Constitutional foundation of liberty and free enterprise, and instead redirected toward totalitarian Socialism instituted by bureaucrats who don't answer to We The People. (See volume #13 in The "REAL MAN" Series, featuring Senator Sir Hillary Clinton.)

BRAINWASHED: HOW UNIVERSITIES INDOCTRINATE AMERICA'S YOUTH
By Ben Shapiro
.

.
From page 101 of McCARTHYISM: THE FIGHT FOR AMERICA:
Hitler said, "Give me control of the educational system for five years and I shall control that country indefinitely." We cannot win the fight against Socialism if Socialist-minded professors are teaching your children. We cannot lose the fight against Socialism if loyal Americans are teaching your children.

NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON . . . 25 YEARS LATER
By John Stormer
.

.
From page 87:
The tragedy of the McCarthy story is that McCarthy was essentially right. What he said and tried to prove was rarely denied. It was simply buried in the controversy his charges provoked.

NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON . . . 25 YEARS LATER remains one of the most important, and still relevant, political tomes ever published - a "Must-Read" for Real American Patriots!

McCARTHY: THE ANSWER TO 'TAILGUNNER JOE'
By Roy Cohn
.

.
ROY COHN said: “They talk about the innocent people McCarthy destroyed. I have yet to have them give me one name. I have a standard answer: 'Name one.' They usually come up with someone who came before some other committee, or Hollywood, or something which was never a focus of a McCarthy investigation."

THE SHADOWS OF POWER: THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS AND THE AMERICAN DECLINE
By James Perloff
.

.
From page 106:
McCarthy was crucified because he discovered that there was more than a tip to the iceberg...Eisenhower was determined to destroy McCarthy but left it to his subordinates to pressure Congress to censure the senator. Anyone who believes McCarthy made wild accusations should read his expose of George Marshall, AMERICA'S RETREAT FROM VICTORY, in which he scrupulously documented every charge.

THE ASSASSINATION OF JOE McCARTHY
By Medford Evans
.

.
From page 297:
Many if not all of those who destroyed McCarthy KNEW that he was a good man. Indeed, that was the reason why he was destroyed -- he was too fearless to be intimidated, too innocent to be corrupted, too charismatically gifted to be ignored.

THE FULTON LEWIS JR. REPORT ON 'THE FUND FOR THE REPUBLIC'
By Fulton Lewis Jr.
.

.
May 2, 1957, the day McCarthy died, Lewis said on his radio broadcast: "I have never seen such a shocking exhibition of distorted reporting and reportorial untruth as I witnessed... Never in 35 years of reporting, have I seen such an organized lynching as was given to the junior Senator from Wisconsin, and I have no hesitancy in sitting here at this microphone and saying so, forever and forever."

THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION
By Kevin Gutzman
.

.
Senator Joseph McCarthy was defanged and defamed. Now he's dead and deep in Wisconsin dirt, meanwhile, Karl Marx is alive and doing pretty well, ruling from the nation's Capitol.

ROCKET TO RUSSIA
By The Ramones
.

.
Whether we're on a Rocket to Russia or a Slow Boat to China, it ain't a pretty view from America 2007. All ten planks of Marx's Communist Manifesto have been instituted in varying degrees, and our centralized government continues to usurp the rights of the states, dictating life from Washington D.C. and federal courthouses while in the process of building the perfect "Beast."

BASIC COMMUNISM: IT'S RISE, SPREAD, AND DEBACLE IN THE 20TH CENTURY
By Clarence Carson
.

.
Dr. Medford Evans said of McCarthy and the United States: "If we have not the national character to repent of the injustice we did him, nor... the intelligence to see that he was right, then it seems unlikely that we can or ought to survive."

BLACKLISTED BY HISTORY: THE UNTOLD STORY OF SENATOR JOE McCARTHY AND HIS FIGHT AGAINST AMERICA'S ENEMIES
By M. Stanton Evans
.

.
The jig is up: we'll have no more socialists dancing on the good Senator's grave! While this tour de force, researched to the nth degree, doesn't necessarily render every other title on this list obsolete, its 643 pages represent 643 nails in the coffin of the Liberal Lie. This is the most up-to-date information available in one volume. GAME OVER!
