  • NY Times Writer Corrects Record: Pete Seeger 'Only' 40 Years Late in Denouncing Stalin

    The New York Times has now corrected a "smear" about Pete Seeger being 50 years too late in denouncing Stalin. Thanks to the intrepid research of Times reporter Daniel J. Wakin, the record has now been set straight. Pete Seeger was only about 40 years too late in criticizing Stalin. What inspired Wakin to make this "major" correction was a report by historian Ron Radosh in the August 31 New York Sun that Pete Seeger sent him a letter recently expressing his regret that he didn't see what anybody with a pair of even slightly discerning eyes could have spotted:...

    Stalin's light is shining bright in Mother Russia By Adrian Blomfield in Volgograd(Filed: 25/02/2006)The two portraits on the wall of the director's office in the Battle of Stalingrad Museum look as incongruous a pairing as one is ever likely to find.An oil painting, flanked by two ceremonial swords, shows Josef Stalin in military regalia. Below him hangs a delicate watercolour of the late Queen Mother.   Nikita Khrushchev "She was very fond of him, you know," said Boris Usik, the director of the museum in the centre of Volgograd, as Stalingrad was renamed in 1961. "They were both great...

He also wanted them to work on railway construction.Labs and ape skeletons have been found in the Black Sea town of Suchumi in Georgia by workmen building a kids’ playground.It...

    ...[T]here is no greater Cold War icon than Alger Hiss, the once high-ranking State Department official who went to prison for denying that he'd passed government secrets to the Soviet Union. Nearly 60 years after he was exposed before Congress by Whittaker Chambers, a communist underground operative who later became a senior editor at Time magazine, belief in Hiss' complete innocence remains an article of faith for the political left. For anti-communists, Hiss remains the prime example of how the Kremlin infiltrated the highest ranks of the U.S. government.... Over the years, Davis remained unpersuaded by new evidence of Hiss'...

    For America's multimillion-dollar Superman industry, it's a serious problem. This is a guy who's from outer space — he was born on the planet Krypton, let's not forget — but he's also from another time. He debuted in the 1930s, when Americans liked their heroes like they liked their steaks: tough, thick and all-American. Nowadays we prefer our heroes dark and flawed and tragic. Look at the Punisher (wife and kids dead), or Hellboy (born a demon), or Spider-Man (secretly a nerd). Look at Batman: his parents were killed in front of him, and he dresses like a Cure fan....

    Though I read them occasionally as a boy, I have never been overly interested in comic books, especially the American sort, the ones featuring superheroes dressed in super-tight costumes fighting super villains, none of whom ever seemed to receive super-long jail sentences for attempting, yet again, to destroy Our Way Of Life. A junior realist, I tended to read, instead, the British-produced, four-times-a-month Commando comics, which were generally set during the Second World War. Commando — whose fabulous titles included Hun Bait, Iron-Cross Yankee, Ghost Stuka, and the unforgettable Deserters Deserve Death! — abjured those pathetic ads one saw in...

    The longstanding leftist orthodoxy of the Los Angeles Times has improved noticably under Editor-in-Chief John Carroll, a respected newsman who moved here from the Baltimore Sun four years ago. Carroll has made a real effort to rein in the paper's liberal bias, at least in straight news stories; earlier this year he wrote a famous (in media circles) in-house memo scolding a reporter for a story about a Texas abortion law; the piece had implied anyone against abortion is obviously nuts. I should note though, that this improvement at the Times was underway even before Carroll's arrival, with the departure...

Jimenez, the head of the mayor's office of immigrant affairs, seems to be taking the matter in stride.

Bush's visit to London this week will be historic for at least two reasons. He will be the first U.S. president to come to Britain on a state visit. He will also observe a bizarre political marriage: one between the remnants of the Marxist-Leninist Left and militant Islamists. Negotiated over the past two years, the "wedding," will be celebrated in a mass demonstration against Bush's visit. The demonstration is organized by a shadowy group called "Stop the War Coalition," part...

    The Guardian UK ^ | Friday August 1, 2003 | Nick Paton Walsh in Moscow
    Joseph Stalin ordered the KGB to assassinate John Wayne because he considered his anti-communist rhetoric a threat to the Soviet Union, according to a new biography of the film star based on interviews with Wayne's close associates and the movie legend Orson Welles. Stalin apparently learned of Wayne's popularity from the Russian filmmaker Sergei Gerasimov, who attended a peace conference in New York in 1949. Michael Munn, a film historian and author of John Wayne - The Man Behind The Myth, said Gerasimov told Stalin of Wayne's fervent anti-communist beliefs. "Stalin decided that he would have him killed," said Mr...

    What did The war on iraq really do to the united nations? Ever since the first hut-buster bomb was dropped in baghdad, International and domestic naysayers alike have been questioning our methods and the actual act. But one of the largest choruses of liberal opinion has been that in our action we have undermined the authority that the U.N. Had. Howeeever, my simple question to them is this, How does enforcing a U.N resolution undermine it´s the authority of the governmental body issuing said resolution? The fact that we are even debating this is proof that the liberal b.s. machine...

Not many conservatives can fight back with as much verve and venom as she can, and if politics is war conducted by other means, Ann is someone I definitely want on my side. I began running Coulter columns on Frontpagemag.com shortly after she came up with her most infamous line, which urged America to put jihadists to the sword and convert them to Christianity. Liberals were horrified; I was not. I thought to myself,this is a perfect send-up of what our Islamo-fascist enemies believe...

    <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...

    "It was taken for granted among us that [Julius and Ethel Rosenberg] were guilty. We had this kind of double thinking. While they were guilty, of course they were innocent. They were framed. Because anyone ... indicted by the capitalists was ipso facto framed." -- Ronald Radosh quoting John Gates, member of the U.S. Communist Party's central committee, in The Rosenberg File. You'd think this verdict, coming from a bona fide red-diaper New York intellectual, would end the argument over this notorious duo, who went defiantly to their execution in 1953. But the campaign to deify the Rosenbergs and other...

    With her new book Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism, syndicated pundit Ann Coulter has driven the national discourse to a new low. No longer content to merely smear liberals and the media with sweeping generalizations and fraudulent evidence, she has now upped the ante, accusing the entire Democratic Party as well as liberals and leftists nationwide of treason, a crime of disloyalty against the United States. But, as in her syndicated columns (many of which are adapted in the book) and her previous book Slander: Liberal Lies Against the American Right, Coulter's case...

    Ann Coulter is a talented writer as well as an attractive and popular woman, which is why she's in a position to take on an issue that many have courageously championed for decades to little avail. In her upcoming book, Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism , Coulter states: "The myth of 'McCarthyism' is the greatest Orwellian fraud of our times. Liberals are fanatical liars, then as now. Everything you think you know about McCarthy is a hegemonic lie." The truth about Joe McCarthy and the story of his successful exposure of the communist...

Mr. Rapf was the son of Harry Rapf, a pioneering executive at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and he recalled having a brief career as a child actor, portraying orphans, street urchins and assorted brats. "Making movies was the family business, and with parental help it became mine as well," he wrote in 1990 for the Dartmouth alumni magazine.

The leftist establishment is downplaying the word "communist” if not wiping it from the vocabulary. Having been embarrassingly wrong all along about Soviet and worldwide communist intentions during the Cold War, the "respected” pillars of academia and communications are ignoring communist pasts or prettying up the records of campus speakers and old hard-line leftists who die.
