Sounds credible to me. Funny how so many believed the Susan Blake ‘I changed his diaper’ story, the Eleanor Nordyke ‘I had twins on the same day in the same hospital’ and Barbara Nelson ‘I wrote his name on a table napkin’ and Mary Toutonghi ‘I baby sat’ - but when it comes to a physicist remembering a dinner conversation in Russia, the man who originally posted the story was called a troll and told to go away...

In 1922, the Russian Comintern provided $300,000 for the spreading of communist propaganda among Negroes. In 1925, the Communist Party U.S.A. told its members:
The aim of our Party in our work among the Negro masses is to create a powerful proletarian movement which will fight and lead the struggle of the Negro race against the exploitation and oppression in every form and which will be a militant part of the revolutionary movement of the whole American working class ... and connect them with the struggles of national minorities and colonial peoples of all the world and thereby the cause of world revolution and the dictatorship of the proletariat.
Freepers wolfcreek and ETL did their best I notice, but it wasn’t enough...no wonder Tom Fife sounded discouraged.
I liked the way Nyquist set the stage for the interview-—with precedents; i.e., such things happen and are not beyond the pale. Evaluate the man and his testimony and decide for yourself.
BTW: He does a lot of interviews about Russia -— dissidents, ex-KGB intelligence, etc. His website is nearly undecipherable though. This is the most direct route to his mp3’s
The disconnect between information that should be investigated, the media’s interest in publishing it, and the public’s curiosity still leave me incredulous. I have been on many Climategate threads, and for a global scandal of this magnitude, there is still precious little reporting on it or its true significance. Many on FR have come back from Thanksgiving reporting that family and friends have heard nothing about it.
We might as well be living in the age of cans and string and carrier pigeons.
We could only guess what our illustrious President would be doing now, back then.
