This Week’s Quote From The Book: “In all such cases, as with the [Alger] Hiss case, this meant that both the extent and the impact of the conspiracies were officially downplayed, denied, suppressed, and/or ignored by those elected leaders directly responsible for defending the Constitution. In each and every instance, it was the anti-Communists…who were punished and castigated by the Washington Establishment, and then ostracized for their ‘crimes’ of exposing treason.”

Quotes Of The Month:

“But here’s how Communist strategy works: What the Communists have always counted on is people’s laziness. They know that editors and book reviewers will not check the facts. They know that everybody is too busy. They expect the false trail of debris and doubt to erode the victim’s position over time.” – J. R. Nyquist, Review of Diana West’s ‘American Betrayal’

“There is an important strategic lesson here. Honest language is precious. It makes unity and agreement possible between men and women of good will. But the enemy of unity and agreement puts words to an entirely different use. The sower of confusion, the literary murderer, uses words as weapons.” – J. R. Nyquist, Review of Diana West’s ‘American Betrayal
