Coulter: FDR Ignored Warnings That Hiss Was a Traitor
NewsMax.com ^ | 6/26/03 | With Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff

Posted on 06/26/2003 1:45:41 PM PDT by Jean S

Leftists, says Ann Coulter in her best-selling new book, "Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism," "have a preternatural gift for striking a position on the side of treason." She goes on to prove that charge.

She begins with the earliest days of Soviet efforts to honeycomb the U.S. government with covert agents, all them traitors to their country yet heroes to the great majority of the "liberals" of those days. She starts with the Roosevelt administration and what later became the infamous case of Alger Hiss.

Worried about the extent of communist penetration of the U.S. government, former Soviet agent and Time magazine editor Whitaker Chambers flew to Washington to alert the Roosevelt administration of the hidden peril.

He met with Assistant Secretary of State Adolf Berle, a Roosevelt confidant, and explained in great detail the Soviet espionage network working within the federal government, giving him the names of at least two dozen spies who had wormed their way into the deepest recesses of the administration.

Among the names he gave Berle were those of Alger Hiss, a top State Department official, and his brother Donald.

In her book Coulter reveals what happened next.

"Berle urgently reported to President Roosevelt what Chambers had said, including the warning about Alger Hiss. The president laughed and told Berle to "go f--- himself."

Coulter notes that instead of taking action against Hiss and the other named spies, "Roosevelt promoted Hiss to the position of trusted aide who would go with him to advise him at Yalta." It was at that summit conference with Stalin and Churchill that Roosevelt, with Hiss at his side whispering his "advice" in his ear, sold Eastern Europe into Soviet captivity.

When the former ambassador to Russia, William C. Bullitt, a close associate of Roosevelt, learned about Hiss and the others, he went to Roosevelt and also got the laugh-off treatment.

The tragedy continued. Berle went to Dean Acheson, then Roosevelt's undersecretary of the Treasury. He refused to believe Berle and later, when he became assistant secretary of state, he immediately asked that Donald Hiss become his assistant, Coulter reveals. When Berle reminded him that Hiss had been identified as a Soviet spy, Acheson "investigated" the charge - he asked Soviet spy Donald Hiss if he were a Soviet spy. Not surprisingly, Soviet spy Donald Hiss said he was not a Soviet spy.

Years later, after Alger Hiss was convicted of lying about his role as a Soviet agent, Acheson said he would not "turn [his] back on Alger Hiss," the man federal prosecutor Thomas Murphy called a "traitor to his country" and a Soviet agent.

And it was also years later that Hiss was finally brought to justice, thanks to Chambers' testimony - which made him a target of the vast number of Soviet sympathizers in the media - and to the dogged investigative work of then-Rep. Richard Nixon and House Committee on Un-American Activities chief investigator Bob Stripling.

In her book, Coulter carefully lays out the facts about the Hiss case, and shows how liberals fought to cover up the vast network of Soviet spies that had infiltrated the highest levels of the U.S. government. She reveals in graphic detail that it was those who sought to expose communist espionage who were attacked and slandered, while the spies and their supporters were rewarded and praised by the leftist establishment.

Much of this is documented in Richard Rhodes "Dark Sun".

Roosevelt, with Hiss at his side whispering his "advice" in his ear, sold Eastern Europe into Soviet captivity.

The difference between one, such as FDR, who would consent to the enslavement of millions of people, and someone, such as Ronald Reagan, who would devote his live to the freeing of those millions is all but indescribable. How do words capture the sentiment?

We have 100 Million people in this country who would say FDR was the "greater" president. Sad!!!

I'm glad to see that someone elst thought "Dark Sun", by Richard Rhodes, was a tour-de-force. The story of the invention of the hydrogen bomb was interesting, but far more engrossing was the story of Soviet espionage targeted against the US nuclear efforts. Basically, the U.S. was almost clueless as to the extent of the Soviet effort.

I have another reason for reading the book - my last name is Rhodes - no relation. And I can assure you that my legs aren't anything close to Ann Coulter's either!

I don't know if it is in her book but Truman in his oral biography published 40 years ago, says that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt referred to Joseph Stalin as Uncle Joe. Truman implied that Roosevelt thought of Joe Stalin as if he were a blood relative.

Truman said Stalin often got Roosevelt drunk at meetings. Truman said Stalin always drank vodka. At the Yalta meeting Truman picked up Stalins glass and tasted it.... Truman said it was plain water.

There was much spin put on the close relationship between Churchill and Roosevelt, but by examining in the conflicts between Churchill and Stalin you will see how often Roosevelt came down on the side of Stalin... That is some confirmation of Roosevelt's underling status to Stalin.

Roosevelt used the media "Drew Pearson" to take down General Patton. Roosevelt would not tolerate any statements against Stalin and Communism. Patton certainly recognized the threat posed to us by the Soviet Union. But Truman also bought the spin of ("can't we all just get along") Dean Acheson. Truman called the case against Alger Hiss a read hearing. When Acheson was Secretary of State under Truman... many referred to Acheson as the RED DEAN. It was Acheson who told the world we did not care about Korea... That stupid statement lead to the Korean war and 50 thousand American deaths.

Nearly all of the Soviet Spies were recruited and placed in our government during the Roosevelt administration.

I think Roosevelt like many who are born to riches and power they did not earn, are very attracted to a system of enforced equality. They espouse a system in which they could not even exist. Jane Fonda is an example. Who believes her movie success is because of her dad Henry Fonda. The funny thing is such people do indeed embrace the Communist ideal, but never want to give up their own wealth, power, or fame.

"I'm glad to see that someone else thought "Dark Sun", by Richard Rhodes, was a tour-de-force."

In a related vein I strongly recommend "The New Dealer's War" by Thomas Fleming. This book lays out a withering critique of FDR's domestic and foreign policy which shows in scrupulously documented detail how the egalitarian fanaticism of FDR and his cadre impelled FDR's administration to callously and repeatedly deceive the American people. This book also demonstrates that FDR's "unconditional surrender" policy, hailed by liberal court historians, was a piece errant foolishness that extended the war by as much as 2 1/2 years and cost millions of lives.

Maybe Ann Coulter's celebiry can help to publicize other scholars who have previously exploded the Liberal FDR myth.

I am a retired Army officer (artillery, MI, and chaplain). I have the privilege of teaching several classes in Colorado Springs to high school, college, and adults on comparative worldviews (biblical vs secular). As I read the various threads, some impress me as good for illustrating different worldviews. So, using some Army terminology, I mark "incidents" as "SPOTREPS" (spot report) and "descriptions of the current world scene" as "SITREPs" (situation reports). INTREP (Intelliegence Report) provides information of an event involving those of the "opposition;" INTSUM (Intelligence Summary) provides more general information. When I get home, I download these SPOTREPs and SITREPs to a database for future use.

Does that help?

That is so simple even a real snook as opposed to an ex-snook should be able to figure it out. Your reference to Ike is quite revealing. You fain ignorance while revealing detailed knowledge of the situation.

Ed Murrow of CBS was the first media hero. He lead the charge against McCarthy. He was the first to oppose McCarthy and lead the pack journalism that did Joe in. It was what made EDWARD R. MURROW the hero of the left. The media had been pretty right wing before. But when Ed came out of the closet, he did so just in time to attack Joe and win. Ed Murrow with the support of CBS owner Paley did it all with his little mic and big camera. Murrow loved the left and Paley wanted to make the point that print media no longer controlled public opinion. Paley wanted the political world to know that TV had public opinion in its back pocket. Prior to this time Politicians wold make TV and Radio reporters wait while they sucked up to the print media. After McCArthy fell, the print reporters had to ride in the back of the bus... TV was the new king of influence.

Eisenhower stayed neutral in typical Eisenhower manner until he could no longer stay neutral. Ike had made a McCarthy cohort his vice President. But when public opinion went against McCarthy so did Ike.

An ex-snook as opposed to a current snook should know that this is a Nation of the people, by the people, and for the people. When public opinion turned on McCarthy, Ike first ignored the situation. When that could not be continued, Ike came out against McCarthy in a Boston speech.

In our nation elected officials are PUBLIC SERVANTS. They are not elected Rulers.

Servants who know what is good for them always take the views held by their masters. Ike was no exception!

It is interesting that the now declassified "Project Venona" that Ann cites in several footnotes was kept secret from both FDR and from Truman - the implication being that neither could be trusted with the knowledge of the existance of the project.

FDR pretty much asked Uncle Joe to politically date rape him. Read all about it in How Uncle Joe Bugged FDR. He ignored any and all evidence that the Soviets might not be the knight in shining armor atop the white horse he, in his pubescent school-girl mentality, wished them to be.

I do not think that FDR was naive, I suppose Stalin had something on him and FDR had no other choice but play naive.

I haven't seen the book yet, but FDR was holding some weak cards at Yalta: the Red army was already occupying much of Eastern Europe by February 1945, and FDR was eager to get Stalin to join in the war against Japan. FDR made some efforts to gain free elections and better borders for Poland because of the importance of the Polish vote in critical states. In retrospect many of the agreements made at Yalta were disastrous (e.g., the division of Korea), but could have seemed at the time like the best that could be obtained...and some of the negative consequences for Eastern Europe flowed from decisions made before Yalta.

The Venona papers were released in 1996. A question here, why would Clinton release papers that indite all he admires. This is the type of puzzel, that when I was in the biz, we would closely review. Was this to deflect a bigger possible disclosure. Not paranoid here but I was trained to look at inconsisity. Our thought was always give up the small or dead fish to give the big ones time to burrow in. What will be the next disclosure.

Just asking

I think this book will bring about a lot of discussion that needs to be brought back to the table.

For a fun or unusual read, here is what used to be the old "The View" message board.
It is no longer with ABC, but still has some opinionated people. The stupid ones would be the liberals of course.

Eleanor Roosevelt attended meetings of the "Young Communists League"

She also spoke at the Highlander Folk School--a communist training camp. She supported the Communists in Spain, attended a convention of the National Lawyers Guild (a communist front), accepted an award from Local #5 of American Federation of Teachers (another Communist front which was eventually kicked out of the union), supported a concert by Paul Robeson (an avowed communist) and was a long time, very vocal admirer of the American Youth Congress

Of possible spies in her husband's adminstration, she said:

"Smearing good people like Alger Hiss and Lauchlin Currie is, I think, unforgivable...Anyone knowing either Mr. Currie or Mr. Hiss, who are two people whom I happen to know fairly well, would not need any denial on their part to know they are not Communists. Their records prove it."

"Servants who know what is good for them always take the views held by their masters. Ike was no exception! "

Appreciate the recap of the media players. But I don't think they are the 'masters' just the voices. I was surprised at Eisenhower joining the Washington left-wing 'masters' who were protecting Communists.

I guess getting Eisenhower shows the depth and power of their influence. But based on the media reaction to her book, the 'masters' are still at it.

Truman didn't go to Yalta...he remained in the U.S. Having both the President and the Vice President absent for several weeks in the middle of a war wouldn't have been very prudent...and one torpedo could have made Sam Rayburn President. Or would it have been the Secretary of State (Stettinius) in this era?

Truman was not at Yalta

Yes you are correct. Thanks for the correction. I confused the Yalta conference with the Pottsdamn Conference.

Pottsdamn was held in August 1945 to implement the Yalta agreement. Pottsdamn was the conference where the events I wrote about took place. Churhill was defeated in his re-election effort during Pottsdamn and was replaced by Clement Attlee.

Truman complained bitterly that Attlee gave in to every one of Stalin's demands.

It was during that conference that Truman learned the Atomic Bomb worked. Truman told Stalin about the bomb and Stalin did not seem surprised. Truman concluded that Stalin knew all about our Atomic project.

Had we not developed the Atomic Bomb it was estimated that taking Japan would cost 1 million American lives. Both Roosevelt and Truman had worked to get Stalin to commit Russian forces to the invasion of Japan. Stalin agreed but wanted Eastern Europe as pay. That is primarily why Stalin got eastern Europe.

As it turned out the Atomic Bomb fixed it so we did not need Stalin's help ... so we gave up eastern europe for 50 years and got nothing in return.

That was the excuse John Gunther and other apologists for FDR used just a few years after Yalta. The truth is FDR surrounded himself with Soviet sympathizers and spies while ignoring the advice of those opposed Stalin.

How could Roosevelt have held weak cards at Yalta?

He made the decision to arm Russia without any compensation while at the same time exacting payments from England for the same thing.

What were these so-called weak cards? Was Russia so strong that FDR was forced to cave in and donate so many Christian nations to his beloved Uncle Joe's loving care?

I thought Oppenheimer turned out to be a Communist. He ran the Mannhattan project. When Ike found out that McCarthy knew about the connection and the Army's role in it, he stepped in to block the investigations and left McCarthy hanging in the wind.

My recollection (admittedly less than perfect) is that Oppenheimer was a suspected sympathizer and/or had several friends who were at least marginally involved, but it was never proved he (Oppenheimer) had an active involvement with the Communist party.

I'll have to re-read a bunch of stuff (most of which I have loaned out to friends, never to be seen again)to get my facts straight.

I'm not sure either. I have this from Stephen Ambrose's 1990 edition of Eisenhower's Biography (Eisenhower Soldier and President), page 340:

"Wilson told the President, over the telephone, that he had just received a report on Oppenheimer. It consisted of a letter from William Borden, the former director of the Joint Congressional Committee on Atomic Energy, to the Secretary of Defense. Borden charged that it was "more likely than not that J. Robert Oppenheimer is a Communist spy."

I'd have to poke around other sources to check it out thoroughly. Ambrose was a big lefty and may have covered for Oppenheimer in this book.

Wilson is Charles E. Wilson, Ike's Secretary of Defense.

Thanks for the link, ACG. I, too, hope books like Ann's help open minds to the facts but it's an uphill battle against all the might of the media, the public schools and academia. They will fight fiercely to preserve the myths they've so carefully cultivated in the popular mind.
