The soft treachery of low information journalism.

Dear Free Beacon,

In “CNN Reporter: Trump Tweets Worse Than McCarthyism,” David Rutz writes that Sen. McCarthy was censured in 1954 "for his relentless charges that Soviet and communist spies had infiltrated various American institutions.” 

As is the case with about 99 p/c of what is said and written about Joseph McCarthy, this statement is untrue and grossly misleading to readers. 

While McCarthy himself would have been the first to point out that he was targeted by his political opponents for his “relentless” (and very successful*) efforts to expose Communists embedded in the US government, he was not, in fact, censured for them.

How dare anyone question Vindman's committment, his loyalty to this country? Look at his uniform, his ranger tab, his Purple Heart, his immigrant status. 

It is a thin disguise. There are grave reasons to scrutinize and question Vindman's behavior,  regardless of whether he is a decorated veteran, an openly partisan Obama holdover, an immigrant from the old USSR, or all of the above.

Barack Obama and Robert De Niro and Tim Cook had dinner together last week in New York City.

So, it was like this: A veteran cadre, a Russian oligarch and a Beijing education official walk into a bar .... 

The following is a masthead editorial from the Morning Herald of Uniontown, PA, of August 19, 1938. It encapsulates a few of the little-remembered highlights of the first two decades of the Soviet-led assault on our nation's character.  

Bear in mind that today, one hundred years after the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, communism is the ideological inspiration of the whole slate of Democrat Pary presidential candidates.
