Medical Quotations About Cancer and Official Treatments

 

We trust them. We get sick, or have some unexplained pain, maybe even get a bit scared 542488-cancer-1367301515-909-640x480and we go to them to “get well”. And maybe that tactic works when you are young and very strong… before the contamination takes full effect. But the more we consume the garbage considered food, or the chemically laden water from our home’s kitchen sink tap, or breathe the tainted aerosolized air (chem-trails), or contaminants from work… but after we grow older and live this life of what is surely a purposefully designed system of sickness and “sickcare”, it all makes our bodies conducive to all sorts of illness, especially cancers.

Cancers are but the body responding to these environments and after decades of “research” and $BILLIONS spent, we are still no closer to any real cures from the Medical Establishment. To the contrary, this establishment goes out of its way to vilify any alternative treatments, even when it has been used for thousands of years previously (as in cannabis and other natural remedies). This establishment is fueled by the money it makes from sickcare, but really has no incentive to cure anyone.

cannabis-cures-cancerBut we do get scared and we want someone to quickly “heal” us, even though they NEVER even recognize that the body has been brought to this condition over time. Give me a pill and hope the malady goes away. And yes, we all have a doctor or LPN we feel really likes us and cares about us. But what does their training tell them? To fight the symptoms and hardly ever look at the basis or cause of the issue (which is generally a body out of balance acidically). But we have also been denied the one natural substance that feeds the endocannabinoid system found in the human body. This is no mistake or ill conceived notion. It is intentional to keep our bodies from getting substances it could use to heal itself and to keep one’s mind from the numbing effects of pineal gland calcification.

Personally, I have seen far too many friends and relatives die with cancer. When I ask them (or their loved ones afterwards) did anyone in the medical field ever address nutrition or tell them to stop eating sugars (drinking soda, etc), I have yet to have one tell me that elimination of sugar was ever brought up. Now, do you believe for a second that these brainiacs who go to school for many years are not taught that cancers eat sugar and cannot live in an oxygenated environment. Do you think that they haven’t learned about this since?

Please.

I think that one could learn a good bit from the article where I found the following quotes.

“But nobody today can say that one does not know what cancer and its prime cause be. On the contrary, there is no disease whose prime cause is better known, so that today ignorance is no longer an excuse that one cannot do more about prevention. That prevention of cancer will come there is no doubt, for man wishes to survive. But how long prevention will be avoided depends on how long the prophets of agnosticism will succeed in inhibiting the application of scientific knowledge in the cancer field. In the meantime, millions of men must die of cancer unnecessarily.”

– Dr. Otto Warburg, Medical Nobel Prize winner

“Everyone should know that the war on cancer is largely a fraud.”

– Dr. Linus Pauling, two time winner of the Nobel Prize

“To the cancer establishment, a cancer patient is a profit center. The actual clinical and scientific evidence does not support the claims of the cancer industry. Conventional cancer treatments are in place as the law of the land because they pay, not heal, the best. Decades of the politics-of-cancer-as-usual have kept you from knowing this, and will continue to do so unless you wake up to their reality.”

– John Diamond, M.D.
Lee Cowden, M.D.

“Chemotherapy is an incredibly lucrative business for doctors, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies. The medical establishment wants everyone to follow the same exact protocol. They don’t want to see the chemotherapy industry go under, and that’s the number one obstacle to any progress in oncology.”

– Glen Warner, M.D.

“You wouldn’t believe how many FDA officials or relatives or acquaintances of FDA officials come to see me as patients in Hanover. You wouldn’t believe this, or directors of the AMA, or ACA, or the presidents of orthodox cancer institutes.”

– Hans Nieper, M.D., alternative medicine practitioner

“When Dr. Hamer was arrested in 1997 for having given three people medical advice without a medical license, the police confiscated his patients’ files and had them analyzed. Subsequently, one public prosecutor was forced to admit during the trial that, after five years, 6,000 out of 6,500 patients with mostly ‘terminal cancer’ were still alive. With conventional treatment the figures are generally just the reverse.”

– Dr. Caroline Markolin, Ph.D.

“As a chemist trained to interpret data, it is incomprehensible to me that physicians can ignore the clear evidence that chemotherapy does much, much more harm than good.”

– Alan Nixon, Ph.D., Past President of the American Chemical Society

“Two to 4% of cancers respond to chemotherapy.”

– Ralph Moss, Ph.D

“The FDA protects the big drug companies, and is subsequently rewarded, and using the government’s police powers, they attack those who threaten the big drug companies. The thing that bugs me is that the people think the FDA is protecting them. It isn’t. What the FDA is doing, and what the public thinks it is doing are as different as night and day.”

– Dr. Herbert Ley, former Commissioner of the F.D.A.

“In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer deaths, and causes it faster, than any other chemical.”

– Dean Burke, Former Chief Chemist Emeritus, U.S. National Cancer Institute

“Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade. Yet doctors still use chemotherapy for these tumors. Women with breast cancer are likely to die faster with chemo than without it.”

– Alan Levin, M.D.

“When a patient is found to have a tumor, the only thing the doctor discusses with that patient is what he intends to do about the tumor. If a patient with a tumor is receiving radiation or chemotherapy, the only question that is asked is, ‘How is the tumor doing’? No one ever asks how the patient is doing. In my medical training, I remember well seeing patients who were getting radiation and/or chemotherapy. The tumor would get smaller and smaller, but the patient would be getting sicker and sicker. At autopsy we would hear, ‘Isn’t that marvelous! The tumor is gone!’ Yes, it was, but so was the patient. How many millions of times are we going to have to repeat these scenarios before we realize that we are treating the wrong thing?”

– Dr. Philip Binzel

Majdanek: The Rodney Dangerfield of “Death Camps”

MajdanekDangerfield

Many have never heard of this “death camp” in Poland, but back just after WWII it was considered one of the worst for gassing Jews (and everyone else). The Nuremberg Trials for all the evil Nazis had evidence presented by the Russians that said over 1.5 Million people were murdered there.

Today, however, the liars have been forced to admit that there were only 78,000 deaths (in total), 59.000 Jews.

That place gets no respect.

Forrestal, Skippy Creator Shared Similar Fate

Forrestal, Skippy Creator Shared Similar Fate

by DC Dave

Skippy_dissolve

The following is posted with permission of the correspondent:

Subj: Thanks for James Forrestal incisive story

Date: 9/26/03

For the last few hours I have been mesmerized by your story, “Who Killed James Forrestal?” I found this after reading your online book, “America’s Dreyfus Affair“, with which I was very impressed, and wanted to learn more about you.

percy1

Percy Crosby (www.skippy.com)

My father, Percy L. Crosby (1891-1964) also knew Forrestal, both of whom were clients of the formerly prestigious NY law firm, Lord, Day & Lord (disbanded 1994, over which former Atty. Gen. Herbert Brownell reigned, Tom Dewey’s close friend and campaign advisor in the Truman-Dewey campaign). Both Forrestal and my father met similar fates, and had made similar enemies who had them black-listed. Currently, my family and I are fighting for our lives (in an Emile Zola type battle you referred to in your book re America’s Dreyfus Affair), in a major fraud lawsuit, too controversial for media to cover, or expose the “truth buried underground”.

Some of the underlying facts of suit are revealed in my web site story of my father’s life (http://www.skippy.com) who was the creator of the famous “Skippy” character, among other literary pursuits (political cartoons, diatribes against the high and mighty, etc.). It may be of interest to you. If so, I would very much like to speak with you. You have done an amazing and splendid job of research and writing, and I’m very impressed.

Your analysis of the Israel-Palestine problem, and its effect on Forrestal is superb, and most timely for today—what Forrestal and others feared has come to pass despite those of us small citizens who tried to speak out and warn of the consequences. My late husband, Waldo Tibbetts, and I were stationed in Israel (1957-60) when he was director of C.A.R.E., a private relief agency, after which he spent 6 years in Saudi Arabia and Egypt as civilian consultant-economist, 1980-86. I have been vilified and labeled as anti-Semitic so often by the defendant Skippy pirates it no longer carries any pain, although I learned to read, write and speak Hebrew fairly well while in Israel, and could laugh (then) at the disparaging comments made to my husband and me as “goyim” (gentiles), done in friendly, joking manner.

My outlook changed after I learned of my father’s 16 years of confinement as a political prisoner in a mental hospital, and those who held him hostage. Like Henry Forrestal, I also am “damned bitter” about the disinformation, cover-up and became the target for the defendants’ relentless efforts to silence me, portraying me as mentally ill, like they did my father. So much for the goodness and popularity of the “famous” SKIPPY brand peanut butter, truly a story deserving of Dickens, where crime pays big and there is no honor among thieves.

Sincerely,

Joan Crosby Tibbetts, President

Bubba Died

BubbaandLeeAnne

Bubba and LeeAnne 5 years ago

I asked folks around here about any potential treatments for esophageal cancer because I was recently told that my long-time highschool friend, Bubba, was sick and had only 4-6 months to live (thanks to those of you who shared). Turns out he had only 6 weeks to live because he died last Friday. The cancer had spread to almost every organ in his body, EXCEPT his lungs (he was smoking the last time I sat with him two weeks ago). It had entered his brain and I could tell he was getting confused when we would tell stories about our good times way back when.

He started having small seizures, which totally freaked his 15 year old son out (he loves him dearly). Bubba finally had a seizure and went into a coma, of which he never came out of. He passed away with his wonderful, loving wife of 23 years holding him. He took two small breaths and was gone.

Mama LeeAnne has been through hell taking care of Bubba and I could tell she was exhausted that last day I visited. She had been dressing him, feeding him, handling each and every detail of life (and the kids/grandkids). Bubba had always been very strong and a good provider, but Mama held the family together and took care of everything at home (Bubba worked all the time).

Bubba was not the  country boy caricature with no teeth in his head and no intelligent words to say. Bubba was no bubba, if you know what I mean. Bubba was hilarious, a very dry humor that when you thought about it would have you laughing your ass off much later (even after you left him).

Bubba and I became very close friends almost immediately. He came to our school in our senior year. Next to him, I was one of the newer people in the class (since 8th grade), so I understood the need for being accepted right away. He was fun and crazy, so we were a perfect match for raising hell.

But he outgrew that stuff (as I have by and large) and was a believer. He held onto his faith until his last breath. He told me when I was with him, “I have done everything the Bible says to do. If I get healed. Good. If not, that’s just the way it is. The one thing I can say is I never lost my faith.”

We had many stories to tell (that may never get told) and I hate that I was so removed from their lives over the last several years. Seems like life just does that.

So, a salute to my old bud, Bubba. You will be sorely missed. Thank you for your friendship and all the wonderful memories.

LeeAnne, know that we all love you and care about you. Don’t know if you’ll ever see this, but some of the old buds still lurk. Call if you ever need anything.

Why Senator Joe McCarthy Had to Be Destroyed

Why Senator Joe McCarthy Had to Be Destroyed

by DC Dave

woodrowwilson-216x300The more I learn, particularly when it involves history over about the past two centuries, the more I discover that things are almost the opposite of what we have been led to believe they were. Historians, for instance, consistently rank Woodrow Wilson as one of America’s best presidents, but now we have a very well reasoned argument from David Stockman that almost everything bad that happened in the 20th century resulted from Wilson’s decision to involve us needlessly in what was known at the time as the Great War. And Stockman even omits any mention of the Balfour Declaration, whose promises Great Britain could not have made good upon without U.S. entry into the war, and the endlessly troublesome state of Israel would not have been created.

The Wilson administration also gave us the federal income tax and the Federal Reserve. But Wilson got a lot of his countrymen killed toiling on the winning side of a war, and that was good enough to merit a place in the presidential pantheon for the power worshippers of academia. Just look at the company he keeps there, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, and George Washington.

Speaking of the Balfour Declaration, in which the British government promised a home to world Jewry in their ancestral land of Palestine, assuming the Brits could grab it from the Ottoman Empire, who were allies of the Germans in the Great War, the latest best evidence indicates that Palestine is not the ancient home of the Jews, after all. According to Shlomo Sand, a very diligent Cover_Shlomo_SandIsraeli history professor and author of The Invention of the Jewish People, virtually all of the so-called “Jewish diaspora” are descendants of converts to Judaism, products of the era in which it was a proselytizing religion almost as much as was Christianity. And if that were not bad enough for the conventional wisdom, Sand tells us that, in all likelihood, many if not most of today’s Arab Palestinians are the descendants of the Biblical Israelites (along with Philistines, Hittites, Samaritans, and offspring of various conquerors and local women) who were given a very strong incentive to convert by the conquering Arabs. Initially, the caliph taxed only non-believers in Islam.

 

Lied to about McCarthy

See what we mean by everything being the opposite of what we’ve been told? And that brings us back to Joe McCarthy. Has any American elected official ever been so completely vilified as has the junior Senator from Wisconsin? He is best known today for the term of opprobrium that A.Word.A.Day defines as, “The practice of making unfounded accusations against someone,” and backs up with this etymology: “After US senator Joseph McCarthy (1909-1957) known for making unsubstantiated claims accusing people of being Communists, spies, and disloyal.”

19460800_Joe_McCarthy_For_Senate

With his finger held carefully to the political winds an execrable young academic careerist by the name of Matthew A. McNiece could refer in his 2008 dissertation, without fear of contradiction, to “the burgeoning anticommunist hysteria that bred all manner of conspiracy theories–culminating most recognizably in McCarthy‘s unverified claim of widespread communist infiltration of the federal government.”

mccarthy-9

McCarthy with Lattimore

The fact of the matter is that McCarthy’s claims were “unsubstantiated” or “unverified” only to the extent that the Truman—and later the Eisenhower—administration, with the aid of allies in the Senate and the news media, put up all manner of obstacles to McCarthy’s attempt to show publicly what he had learned privately, mainly from the FBI. An example of how the obstacles were placed and the history of the period distorted is shown in my 2011 article, “M. Stanton Evans on Good Night and Good Luck.

What McCarthy was up against, and some appreciation of the degree of Communist and pro-Communist infiltration and, indeed, takeover of key levers of power by the end of the 1940s can be had by examining the 1952 report of the Senate Judiciary Committee, of which, McCarthy was never a member. These conclusions are completely supported by the testimony of the independent-minded private citizen, Alfred Kohlberg, who lays heavy blame upon the Institute for Pacific Relations (IPR) for the fall of China to the Communists in 1949. One of the key members of the IPR mentioned in the report was Owen Lattimore, who was also one of McCarthy’s main targets. The primary avenue of Lattimore’s influence upon government policy on China was through his close associate, Lauchlin Currie, who had been revealed to the White House as a Soviet agent by Communist defector Whittaker Chambers in 1939 at a time that the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany were allies.

 

INSTITUTE OF PACIFIC RELATIONS REPORT

OF THE

COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY*

SECOND SESSION

JULY 2 (legislative day JUNE 27), 1952.—Ordered to be printed.

CONCLUSIONS

The Institute of Pacific Relations has not maintained the character of an objective scholarly and research organization.

*   *   *

The IPR has been considered by the American Communist Party and by Soviet officials as an instrument of Communist policy, propaganda and military intelligence.

*   *   *

The IP disseminated and sought to popularize false information including information originating from Soviet and Communist sources.

*   *   *

A small core of officials and staff members carried the main burden of IPR activities and directed its administration and policies.

*   *   *

Members of the small core of officials and staff members who controlled IPR were either Communist or pro-Communist.

*   *   *

There is no evidence that the large majority of its members supported the IPR for any reason except to advance the professed research and scholarly purposes of the organization.

*   *   *

Most members of the IPR, and most members of the Board of Trustees, were inactive and obviously without any influence over the policies of the organization and the conduct of its affairs.

*   *   *

IPR activities were made possible largely through the financial support of American industrialists, corporations, and foundations, the majority of whom were not familiar with the inner workings of the organization. (Emphasis added)

*   *   *

The effective leadership of the IPR often sought to deceive IPR contributors and supporters as to the true character and activities of the organization.

Owen Lattimore was, from some time beginning in the 1930’s, a conscious articulate instrument of the Soviet conspiracy.

Owen Lattimore testified falsely before the subcommittee with reference to at least five separate matters that were relevant to the inquiry and substantial in import.

Owen Lattimore and John Carter Vincent were influential in bringing about a change in United States policy in 1945 favorable to the Chinese Communists.

Many of the persons active in and around the IPR, and in particular though not exclusively Owen Lattimore, Edward C. Carter, Frederick V. Field, T.A. Bisson, Lawrence K. Rosinger, and Maxwell Stewart, knowingly and deliberately used the language of books and articles which they wrote or edited in an attempt to influence the American public by means of pro-Communist or pro-Soviet content of such writings.

*   *   *

The net effect of IPR activities on United States public opinion has been such as to serve international Communist interests and to affect [sic] adversely the interest of the United States.

Look again at the passage I have emphasized: “IPR activities were made possible largely through the financial support of American industrialists, corporations, and foundations, the majority of whom were not familiar with the inner workings of the organization.” The committee coyly leaves the reader with the impression that those providing the funding for the IPR were duped by the Communist staff members, just as IPR member Kohlberg had been duped before he began to take a more careful look at the organization.

 

Tune Callers Identified

But we all know that the old saying is usually valid that “he who pays the piper calls the tune.” Forget about the majority of contributors providing financing; what about the key minority of contributors who provided the majority of the financing? The committee is strategically silent on that absolutely crucial question. For that, we must turn to the pages of Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time by the very well connected Georgetown University historian, Carroll Quigley:

51458BPRMWL

In 1951 the Subcommittee on Internal Security of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the so-called McCarran Committee, sought to show that China had been lost to the Communists by the deliberate actions of a group of academic experts on the Far East and Communist fellow travelers whose work in that direction was controlled and coordinated by the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR). The influence of the Communists in IPR is well established, but the patronage of Wall Street is less well known.

The IPR was a private association of ten independent national councils in ten countries concerned with affairs in the Pacific. The headquarters of the IPR and of the American Council of IPR were both in New York and were closely associated on an interlocking basis. Each spent about $2.5 million dollars over the quarter-century from 1925 to 1950, of which about half, in each case, came from the Carnegie Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation (which were themselves interlocking groups controlled by an alliance of Morgan and Rockefeller interests in Wall Street). Much of the rest, especially of the American Council, came from firms closely allied to these two Wall Street interests, such as Standard Oil, International Telephone and Telegraph, International General Electric, the National City Bank, and the Chase National Bank. In each case, about 10 percent of income came from sales of publications and, of course, a certain amount came from ordinary members who paid $15 a year and received the periodicals of the IPR and its American Council, Pacific Affairs and Far Eastern Survey.

The financial deficits which occurred each year were picked up by financial angels, almost all with close Wall Street connections. The chief identifiable contributions here were about $60,000 from Frederick Vanderbilt Field over eighteen years, $14,700 from Thomas Lamont over fourteen years, $800 from Corliss Lamont (only after 1947), and $18,000 from a member of Lee, Higginson in Boston who seems to have been Jerome D. Greene. In addition, large sums of money each year were directed to private individuals for research and travel expenses from similar sources, chiefly the great financial foundations.

Most of these awards for work in the Far Eastern area required approval or recommendation from members of IPR. Moreover, access to publication and recommendations to academic positions in the handful of great American universities concerned with the Far East required similar sponsorship. And, finally, there can be little doubt that consultant jobs on Far Eastern matters in the State Department or other government agencies were largely restricted to IPR-approved people. The individuals who published, who had money, found jobs, were consulted, and who were appointed intermittently to government missions were those who were tolerant of the IPR line. The fact that all these lines of communication passed through the Ivy League universities or their scattered equivalents west of the Appalachians, such as Chicago, Stanford, or California, unquestionably went back to Morgan’s influence in handling large academic endowments.

It was this group of people, whose wealth and influence so exceeded their experience and understanding, who provided much of the frame-work of influence which the Communist sympathizers and fellow travelers took over in the United States in the 1930’s. It must be recognized that the power that these energetic Left-wingers exercised was never their own power or Communist power but was ultimately the power of the international financial coterie, and, once the anger and suspicions of the American people were aroused, as they were by 1950, it was a fairly simple matter to get rid of the Red sympathizers. Before this could be done, however, a congressional committee, following backward to their source the threads which led from admitted Communists like Whittaker Chambers, through Alger Hiss, and the Carnegie Endowment to Thomas Lamont and the Morgan Bank, fell into the whole complicated network of the interlocking tax-exempt foundations. The Eighty-third Congress in July 1953 set up a Special Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations with Representative B. Carroll Reece, of Tennessee, as chairman. It soon became clear that people of immense wealth would be unhappy if the investigation went too far and that the “most respected” newspapers in the country, closely allied with these men of wealth, would not get excited enough about any relevations to make the publicity worth while, in terms of votes or campaign contributions. An interesting report showing the Left-wing associations of the interlocking nexus of tax-exempt foundations was issued in 1954 rather quietly. Four years later, the Reece committee’s general counsel, Rene A. Wormser, wrote a shocked, but not shocking, book on the subject called Foundations: Their Power and Influence. (Emphasis added)

So, the missing names from the Senate Committee reports were primarily the big Wall Street connected foundations of the Rockefellers and J.P. Morgan. The Senate Judiciary Committee knew how far they could go in belling the cat, but McCarthy didn’t know how far he could go. Quigley, himself, as a member of the established American academic history community, was also a lot like the Committee in his circumspection. My quotes are from pp. 945-956 of his book, which can be found on the Internet here. One can see there that in the midst of his shocking revelations Quigley creates a red herring and lets loose a blast at those who have drawn what would appear to be quite plausible conclusions:

Flynn, Freda Utley, and others, was even more remote from the truth than were [Communist defectors Louis] Budenz’s or [Elizabeth] Bentley’s versions, although it had a tremendous impact on American opinion and American relations with other countries in the years 1947-1955. This radical Right fairy tale, which is now an accepted folk myth in many groups in America, pictured the recent history of the United States, in regard to domestic reform and in foreign affairs, as a well-organized plot by extreme Left-wing elements, operating from the White House itself and controlling all the chief avenues of publicity in the United States, to destroy the American way of life, based on private enterprise, laissez faire, and isolationism, in behalf of alien ideologies of Russian Socialism and British cosmopolitanism (or internationalism).

In the great mass of Quigley’s verbiage, though, is the simple truth that the heavy hitters of Wall Street knowingly funded a massive sell-out to the Communists in the Far East. One might speculate as to what their purposes were in doing so, but it would appear that the fact they did so is indisputable. Noticeably absent from the pages of his work is the name of Alfred Kohlberg, a businessman with no particular ideological axe to grind, whose description of the IPR as a thoroughly Communist and very influential outfit accords quite closely to what Quigley suggests is a “radical Right fairy tale.”

A View from Down Under

Fortunately, we don’t have to depend upon Quigley’s muddy and sometimes contradictory prose to see who destroyed Joe McCarthy and why they did it:

Ralph Edward Flanders

Ralph Edward Flanders

The deathblow to McCarthy’s campaign was instigated not by some Party hack at the Daily Worker, but by Sen. Ralph

Flanders, who introduced the resolution for Senate censure of McCarthy. This was backed by Sen. Herbert Lehman, son of Mayer Lehman, founder of Lehman Brothers international investment bank, of which Herbert was a partner.

Sen Herbert Lehman

Herbert Lehman

Lehman, like the Warburgs, Schiffs, et al., was one of those who intermarried among the banking dynasties, marrying Edith Louise Altschul, the daughter of the head of the New York branch of Lazard Frères, the Paris-based banking house. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his campaign against Sen. McCarthy, as was the anti-McCarthy cartoonist Herbert Block.

Sen. Flanders as the introducer of the Senate death blow to McCarthy himself had an interesting background, not as some “progressive” or liberal Democrat, but as a Republican, an industrialist and a banker.

McCarthy’s most dangerous enemies were, in this writer’s opinion, not the Soviet spies and American Communist Party functionaries he was exposing, but those whom he had not even yet got around to targeting, the power elite and their agents.

Flanders had been president of the Boston Federal Reserve Bank for two years prior to being elected Senator for Vermont. In 1_boston_seal1942 he was appointed to the Committee for Economic Development, which was established to formulate US post-war economic policy, including the role of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

Keep in mind at this stage that both Flanders and Lehman were members of the Council on Foreign Relations, which CFR official historian Peter Grosse described as “the US foreign policy cfr-logoestablishment.” Flanders had been involved in a CFR study committee on post-war US foreign policy set up in 1940. Flanders was also a member of the Business Advisory Council, another association of significance that will be considered shortly.

Other CFR study group members included Lauchlin Currie and Benjamin V Cohen both from the US State Department, Asia expert Prof. Owen Lattimore, and economist Leo Pasvolsky, special assistant for post-war planning to the US Secretary of State. All of these CFR advisers were to come to the attention of Sen. McCarthy’s investigations into subversion.

This CFR connection is a primary key to understanding McCarthy’s political destruction….

All of these quotes (with links supplied by me) are from the well-documented November 2013 article, “Joe McCarthy & the Establishment Bolsheviks,” by New Zealand writer Kerry Bolton, and I commend it to readers in its entirety. Here is Bolton’s conclusion:

McCarthy was finished off by a coalition of Big Business, CFR, Business Advisory Council, US Administration, New York Times, Washington Post, CIA. He carried on as Senator for a further several years during which time he was ostracised and his speeches boycotted in the Senate. McCarthy was wrecked emotionally and physically by the campaign against him, Fred J Cook describing him as “a pale ghost of his former self”; he died in 1957 at the age of 48. E Merrill Root cogently described the situation with which McCarthy was probably unknowingly confronted: “. . . I do not think that the Senator ever quite saw the real nature of the enemy within, the full scope of the Conspiracy in New York and Washington . . ..”

A different perspective on Joe McCarthy: Mrs Jean McCarthy thanks the Marine Corps for the honours that were accorded to her late husband, showing a man of tolerance, bravery and humour. Note Mrs McCarthy’s references to the DCF and the Air Medal Four Stars, and the citation for bravery written by Admiral Nimitz. The letter is featured on the website of The 8th & I Reunion Association of the US Marine Corps. McCarthy, a Judge at the time of World War II, had volunteered for Service, despite his exemption. One of the major smears against McCarthy continues to be that he had not seen active service, that the image of “Tail Gunner Joe” was a myth, and that he had faked the Nimitz citation for bravery

Joe McCarthy might be a prophet without honor in his own land, but it’s good to see that that is not the case in at least one small corner of New Zealand.

To my mind, the biggest indicator of Senator McCarthy’s naiveté is that he allowed himself to be treated at Bethesda Naval Hospital, considering the fate that had befallen James Forrestal there. For evidence that McCarthy’s death may not have been any more natural than was Forrestal’s, see The Assassination of Joe McCarthyby Medford Evans and the section entitled “McCarthy’s Death at Bethesda” in my article “James Forrestal and Joe McCarthy.”

 


 

*This report is Appendix L of the very illuminating book, The China Lobby Man: The Story of Alfred Kohlberg by Joseph Keeley. The appendices alone are worth the price of the book. Kohlberg’s Senate testimony was also a Keeley appendix as was the JFK speech around which I built the article, “John F. Kennedy on the Loss of China.” There’s something very curious about this book, though. If you go to the Amazon.com page for the unbound version, what you will see there represented as an illustration of the cover is actually a picture of the cover of one of the most worthless books ever written, Quotations from Chairman Bill: the Best of William F. Buckley, Jr. I know that it is worthless because when I ordered the Keeley book from a used book company, what they sent me was the Buckley abomination instead. Naturally, I complained and requested that I get what I had ordered. The sellers told me not to bother even sending the Buckley book back and they then sent me the requested Keeley work.

What’s going on? To find out, go to BookFinder.com and search for the book using author and title. When the Keeley book comes up its ISBN will accompany it. Now go back and do the search again, but this time only by that ISBN. All you get is that lousy Buckley book. The two books have the same ISBN. The Keeley book came first, but the Buckley book has been given its ISBN and now seems to have been given priority. A more suspicious mind than mine might conclude that someone is steering us away from the story of the China Lobby Man and those valuable appendices.
