"Whittaker Chambers was born Jay Vivian Chambers and also known as David Whittaker Chambers[1] (April 1, 1901 – July 9, 1961), was an American writer and editor. After being a Communist Party USA member and Soviet spy, he later renounced communism and became an outspoken opponent later testifying in the perjury and espionage trial of Alger Hiss. Both are described in his book published in 1952 entitled Witness."

Good Lord!
Even Wiki manages to get it better than CSPAN!

journalist M. Stanton Evans...

November 8, 2007-"M. Stanton Evans talked about his book, Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies, published by Crown Forum. The author argued that Senator Joseph McCarthy does not deserve the bad reputation he has been assigned by historians, and that Senator McCarthy was correct in his assessment of the threat posed by Communists in the United States during the so-called “Red Scare” and that his detractors knowingly cover up the extent of this threat. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions."

"...he did not understand the distinction between a small government and one with limited powers."

Fool didn't know that conservatism demands both small, and limited!

Today we have a government of near 10 million sucking the blood out of the population - 8 million federal and near 2 million state government pukes that do little to nothing for their lavish salaries - and near a third of them are tax delinquent!

"Conservatives discuss anti-communism (Whittaker Chambers' 'Witness' on CSPAN2 Saturday)"

I'm glad somebody on TV is talking about communism as a threat.  It's like communism is some kind of dead subject.  The Soviet Union fell, so communism is dead and gone.  And oh yeah, remember that crazy McCarthy guy who runied so many lives with his crazy right-wing knee jerk accusations?  Right.  Communists have taken over our education system, our major media centers, and now our government.  But the subject of communism as a threat to our democratic republic is a total nothingburger to the general American intelligencia. (or should I say, un-intelligencia)

We got a guy at work, a liberal, focused like a laser beam on the threat of an emgergence of right-wing Nazi-like facism in our government.  Communists have taken over the nation right under his nose, but he's still focused like a laser beam on the big threat of right-wing facism.  He says he's not worried about communists at all.  Brilliant fellow.
