    <p>John G. Adams, a key figure in the proceedings that effectively ended Sen. Joseph McCarthy's career, passed quietly from the scene last week at age 91. Not surprisingly, his death made no news; it's been a while since those heady days when McCarthy launched his investigations of the Army, which had, he charged, been shielding countless Communist agents at Fort Monmouth and elsewhere. It fell to Adams, the Army's chief counsel, to deal with the charges, which he did to devastating effect in the Army-McCarthy hearings that held the nation in thrall in the 1950s.</p>

    July 4, 2003 | "Slander" is defined in Bouvier's Law Dictionary as "a false defamation (expressed in spoken words, signs, or gestures) which injures the character or reputation of the person defamed." The venerable American legal lexicon goes on to note that such defamatory words are sometimes "actionable in themselves, without proof of special damages," particularly when they impute "guilt of some offence for which the party, if guilty, might be indicted and punished by the criminal courts; as to call a person a 'traitor.'" So how appropriate it is that in the rapidly growing Ann Coulter bibliography, last year's...

    Kids fear Ann Coulter "Mommy, make the scary lady go away." Those are the tearful words of Kaylee Brodkin, 7, of Gary, Ind., who for the last five days has been awakened in the middle of the night by terrifying nightmares - nightmares featuring television pundit/author Ann Coulter. With the ubiquitous Coulter currently on a national book tour, little Kaylee's sad story is far from an isolated occurrence. "More and more these days, we are seeing small children who have been traumatized by Ann Coulter," said Dr. Harmon Densmore, chief clinical psychologist at the Chartwell Children's Institute based at the...

    On our nation's birthday, it is appropriate to honor the five men who did the most to defend our freedom in the last century. The names are easy to remember – they are the five men most loathed by liberals: Joseph McCarthy, J. Edgar Hoover, Richard Nixon, Whittaker Chambers and Ronald Reagan. McCarthy died censured and despised at 48 years old, his name a malediction. Hoover is maligned for having been a mad spymaster and is lyingly smeared as a cross-dresser – by people who admire cross-dressers. Nixon was forced to resign the presidency in disgrace. Though persecuted in his...

    To the editor: "Whenever the nation is under attack, from within or without, liberals side with the enemy," writes Ann Coulter in her new book, "Treason," subtitled "Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorists." Wrong. Our nation is presently "under attack from within" by the group known as PNAC, the "Project for the New American Century,"[1] which now inhabits the Bush White House. Liberals are certainly not siding with this enemy. The progressive movement desperately is attempting to defend the U.S. constitution from this menace. Desperate because the White House and both houses of Congress have...

    Just went to Borders on Broadway near Wall Street in New York City to buy Treason by Ann Coutler. Only 8 copies of her book were displayed on a stand to the side that wasn't even facing the door. When I bought it - it was 30% off I got a dirty look by the pretty Gen Xy college student cashier. She even made a point to check the back of my credit card to see if the signatures matched up - they seldom do that. On the other hand - Hillary's book was displayed all over the palce! In...

    The ladies of "The View" apparently were highly displeased yesterday morning when guest co-host Ann Coulter brought her pal Matt Drudge into the dressing room before the show. The aggrieved television personalities -- who later gave Coulter a hard time on the air for everything from her right-wing political views to her micro-miniskirt -- were "View" regulars Meredith Vieira, Star Jones and Joy Behar.

    The MRC's Jessica Anderson took down a hunk of the gabfest at the beginning of the June 25 The View, ABC's daytime show created by Barbara Walters, for whom Coulter was filling in. Meredith Vieira explained: “In your last book you said liberals have been wrong about everything in last half century. You ticked us off over that one, alright. And now in this new bok you say that liberals hate freedom...I want to talk about your politics because in Treason you say, yes, that liberals hate America." Ann Coulter: "Right." Vieira: "Well, it's stupid. What do you mean liberals...

    Coulter's Book Beating Hillary June 20, 2003 Ann Coulter's new book, Treason, isn't even out yet. No, it won't hit bookstores for a few days - yet it's already being talked about and beating Hillary's work of fiction. Treason is #3 on the Amazon list. Hillary Clinton's tome is a tumbling #4. It must be noted that the Amazon list records sales. If, as Jack Romano at Simon & Schuster claims, Hillary's book is the fastest selling non-fiction book of all time, it ought to be #1 on every sales list out there. There must be another vast right-wing conspiracy...

    Where Have You Gone, Joe McCarthy? What the West really needs today, in fact what we desperately need, is another man with the courage, fortitude, and stamina of the (unjustly) infamous junior Republican Senator from Wisconsin: Joseph R. McCarthy. Though he was judged harshly by his contemporaries, and has suffered even more at the hands of historians, the truth of the matter is that Joe McCarthy was one of the greatest heroes of the 20th century, one man with the courage to stand up against an Establishment willing to turn a blind eye to communist infiltration and to fight against...

    I just checked to see how Ann Coulter's upcoming book is doing. You might remember that many FReepers have made an effort to pre-order Ann Coulter's Treason in order to knock Hillary off the charts. Earlier today a thread on FR noted that Ann's book had risen to #5 on and Hillary's had dropped to #4. I am happy to report that according to at 3:20pm PST, 19 June Ann Coulter's Treason has overtaken Hillary Clinton's Lying History in Amazon Sales Rankings. Let's go to the scoreboard: Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War...

    Media Monitor ^ | May 27, 2003 | Cliff Kincaid
    The release of 50-year-old hearings conducted by Senator Joe McCarthy gave the media another opportunity to charge that the Wisconsin Senator made reckless charges about communists that destroyed the lives of innocent people. M. Stanton Evans, a scholar on the subject, contacted reporters for Roll Call newspaper, the Washington Post and Reuters in a fruitless attempt to get the name of one innocent victim of McCarthy. They told him to contact Donald Ritchie, the Senate historian who edited the hearings and appeared on several shows to talk about them. Ritchie told Evans to send him a letter. One of those...

    McCarthyism - The Right's Badge Of Honor By William A. Mayer On Monday May 5, 2003 over 4,200 pages of previously classified testimony, made before the 1953-1954 Senate Permanent Committee on Investigations, became available to the public. These hearings [although some of the thunder had already been stolen during the 1948 - 1949 Nixon chaired HUAC sessions] delved further into the charges that the Soviet Union had placed intelligence agents - spies - throughout the Democrat administrations of both FDR and Harry Truman. The Committee’s lighting rod chairman at the time was the Republican Senator from Wisconsin, Joseph P....

    In a key step toward unravelling the secret history of the Cold War, the U. S. Senate last week released 50-year-old executive hearings on subversion and internal security matters conducted by Sen. Joe McCarthy (R.-Wis.). Running to more than 4,000 pages, these hearings are crammed with backstage data on a host of once-torrid issues—including controversial McCarthy sessions on the Voice of America, United States Information Agency libraries, State Department personnel, and the Army Signal Corps installation at Fort Monmouth, N.J., to name a few. The last is of special interest as it was the prelude to the famous Army-McCarthy fracas...

    On September 21, 1964, a student demonstration occurred on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley. Thereafter other and more serious demonstrations followed until it finally became necessary for the governor to summon officers to clear the administration building on the campus of more than 800 defiant students who had entered and staged a sit-in demonstration. Many arrests were made, the student rebellion received international publicity, and the image of a great cultural institution received irreparable damage. It is the responsibility of this subcommittee to ascertain the causes of these disturbances and to report the extent to which...

    Media Monitor: Anti-McCarthy McCarthyism By Jason Maoz Joe McCarthy was in the news last week, and once again the Monitor took due note of the fact that the late senator from Wisconsin — certainly when compared with his more hysterical critics — was a mere piker in the fine art of innuendo and allegation. The Monitor has always been fascinated with the way the McCarthy period is portrayed in the liberal media and among left-wing academics, particularly in light of what is now known about the control exerted by Moscow over the American Communist Party and the extent of Soviet...

    <p>Fifty years ago this month in Moscow, Josef Stalin died. He and his Red Army had been our allies (not formally but informally) in defeating Nazism and Fascism. Winston Churchill thought well of "old Joe" for a time. During the war American propaganda referred to his armies as "Our Heroic Soviet Allies," and President Roosevelt joshed that he was "Uncle Joe." Then we had a falling out with the mustachioed Georgian.</p>

    National Review Online ^ | 2/26/03 | Jonah Goldberg
    One of the most difficult things for a conservative to write about is McCarthyism. Oh, I don't mean "difficult" in the Oprah Book Club sense of difficult. It's not painful, or heart-wrenching, or cathartic. I mean it is technically challenging to write about it with clarity and precision. The problem is simple: McCarthyism has come to mean anything liberals or leftists consider to be unfair, unjust, un-nice. It's simply another example of the general phenomenon described by George Orwell when he wrote in "Politics and the English Language" that "The word Fascism has now no meaning except in so far...
  • A legacy of shame: Hugh Hewitt on parallels between Sen. Leahy, Joe McCarthy

    Sen. Patrick Leahy has set himself on a course that will link him to the legacy of another famous name from the Senate's past – Joe McCarthy. Like the infamous McCarthy, Leahy does not shy away from deception and he does not hesitate to slander. Like McCarthy, Leahy is an extreme ideologue with a fervent following urging him on. And like McCarthy, Leahy is both excitable and, as is increasingly obvious, not really very bright. Leahy and his allies will reject the comparison, of course, and will tell each other that their record on the Bush judicial nominees, though hardball,...
