I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

Even after all the evidence that has come out from KGB files and the transcripts of the the Venona intercepts of Russian communications, someone has published another book defending the “innocence” of Alger Hiss. Harvey Klehr has a review over at The New Criterion of Alger Hiss: Framed: A New Look at the Case That Made Nixon Famous by Joan Brady. The review is a brutal dismemberment of Brady’s book.

This farrago of nonsense and garbage is a disgrace to the person who wrote it, the editors and publishers who produced it, and the ideological fools who endorsed it. The only reason to discuss it at any length is to expose its mendacity as an antidote to anyone who has the misfortune to read it.

Read the whole thing.

  1. I wonder if Joan Brady knows the Rosenbergs we’re guilty, too.

    I wasn’t aware of the Venona Project until I read Ann Coulter’s Treason about 10 years ago. It gave me a whole new insight to the left and the media (but I repeat myself).

    • One of the best books I have ever read on the subject, Hoosier, is “Blacklisted By History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies” – written by the late, great M. Stanton Evans.

      It is uber detailed, and very thoroughly cited.

      We lost a brilliant journalist and author when Mr. Evans passed. 🙁

  2. Just a reminder, those planning to take the Chambers Pumpkin Patch Hike at the the next Team Free Speech Clubhouse event should wear appropriate clothing, including high-top hiking boots and Hunter Safety Orange vest or jacket.

    • The Pumpkin Patch where Whittaker Chambers hid the evidence that incriminated Alger Hiss is located at the junction of Saw Mill Road and Bachmans Valley Road north of Westminster. A little over 20 years ago, Mrs. Hoge and I almost bought the property across Saw Mill Road from the Pumpkin Patch. It’s a nice 10-acre parcel with a Federal-era farmhouse, excellent barn and other outbuildings, and a spring-fed pond. Just before we would have made an offer, the farmer across Bachmans Valley Road put in a chicken house with 10,000 hens.

      We decided to buy the current Hoge Manor instead.
