It was the Prothonotary Warbler that cooked Hiss’ goose!
Prothonotary Warbler...don’t forget the old decrepit Ford, the expensive oriental rug, a typewriter, and a certain pumpkin on Chambers’ farm.
Over the past few month’s, I’ve read “Witness” by Chambers and “Communism: A History” by Richard Pipes, and “The Communist” by Paul Kengor. I’m currently working my way through “The Venona Secrets, Exposing Soviet Espionage and America’s Traitors” by Herbert Romerstein and Eric Breindel.
Earlier this year, I read several books about the depression and FDR which all touched on the communist infiltration of the government in the 1930s: “The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression” by Amity Shlaes; “FDR’s Folly: How Roosevelt and His New Deal Prolonged the Great Depression” by Jim Powell; and “New Deal or Raw Deal?: How FDR’s Economic Legacy Has Damaged America” by Burton W. Folsom Jr.
Next Up: “Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies” by M. Stanton Evans.
You sure can get an education about the dangers that our nation faces if you read a little. You learn things that were NEVER taught to you in school.
