Skip to comments."American Betrayal" Goes to the 36th Annual Pumpkin Papers Irregulars Dinner

I am very happy to reveal that at this year's gathering of the Pumpkins Papers Irregulars, a deluxe dinner held in Washington by intelligence experts and interested observers to honor the memory of Whittaker Chambers and his triumph over the traitor Alger Hiss, I was given the annual honor of lighting the pumpkin and later addressing the assembly about American Betrayal.
Highlights of the evening included warm tributes to fallen Cold Warriors: M. Stanton Evans on the late Herbert Romerstein (1931-2013), and Paul Kengor on the late Judge William P. Clark (1931-2013). This year's "coveted" Victor Navasky Award, presented by Ken deGraffenreid, went posthumously to Saul Alinsky, whose spawn (HRB, BHO, among others) continue to subvert the remnant republic. Regrettably, former Sen. Jon Kyl was unable to appear as scheduled. Al Regnery and Sebastian Gorka MC'd the evening's presentations.
I gave Cliff Kincaid permission to tape my talk, which is about the Communist threat yesterday and the Islamic threat today. Thanks to Cliff's hand-held camera work, it is presented below. Cliff has also written his weekly AIM column about the event here.

American Betrayal is a great book. I’ve been aware of some of the broader outlines of Soviet penetration of the west for years - Chambers, Hiss, Oppenheimer, Philby, Fuchs etc., but as she says, I didn’t know the half of the half of it. Adds new levels of meaning to “winning WWII”.
I attended the Pumpkin Papers Irregulars dinner this pas Halloween, heard her address, and even got to chat with her. Her knowledge of the history of Soviet espionage and policy sabotage in the US is quite impressive.
