60 Minutes to Help Rehabilitate Ethel Rosenberg

Moonbattery

The job of 60 Minutes is to repackage ultra-left lunacy in superficially reasonable tones for mainstream consumption, so it is perfectly suited to the task of rehabilitating Ethel Rosenberg. You thought only the communist kooks running New York City would champion a woman who helped put Stalin in a position to kill us by the millions with nuclear weapons? Wrong:

Obama’s presidency isn’t over until the end of next year, yet rumors already are swirling about who he might pardon.

One name in particular keeps surfacing: Ethel Rosenberg, a dedicated communist and convicted espionage conspirator.

Those who regard her as a hero for spying on behalf of the Soviet Union are ramping up their lobbying efforts.

There’s a New York City Council proclamation calling for an “Ethel Rosenberg Day of Justice in the Borough of Manhattan,” and a forthcoming segment of “60 Minutes” that will endeavor to show Ethel received an unfair trial and never should have been executed.

On the contrary, thanks to the Venona files, we now know just how richly Ethel Rosenberg deserved execution.

Only the comfortably ignorant can now deny the extent of the damage done or who the players were. Ethel’s role should no longer be in question.

The phrase “comfortably ignorant” apply describes the 60 Minutes audience. The cure for their malady is a dose of reality:

• Ethel was critical in getting her brother, David [Greenglass], a machinist at Los Alamos, NM, to turn over documents and drawings that confirmed what they were already receiving from nuclear physicists such as Klaus Fuchs and Ted Hall.

• Ethel was trusted by at least two KGB spies, Semyon Semyonov and Alexander Feklisov. Masters of espionage tradecraft, Soviet spies awarded their trust to only the most loyal and dedicated American operatives.

• Ethel was present when Julius had meetings with spy ring members such as Joel Barr and Nathan Sussman. The couple’s small apartment was often used for meetings and the exchange of purloined documents.

• As the FBI closed in on the Rosenberg spy ring in the aftermath of revelations from physicist Fuchs, chemist Harry Gold, Greenglass and other Americans caught in the web of lies, Ethel was quickly assigned the task of collecting incriminating evidence and keeping it from law-enforcement authorities.

• After Julius was arrested and imprisoned, he informed another prisoner, Eugene Tartakow, an FBI plant, that Ethel assisted him on many of his spy projects.

To conclude:

[A] presidential pardon would be a disservice to those who fought totalitarianism and respect historical truth.

But leftists have a fetish for the Rosenbergs. So 60 Minutes will rewrite history to absolve her, and Obama will grant the pardon. If liberals remain in power, Julius Rosenberg will follow in time.

At least we don’t have to worry about Obama pardoning Benedict Arnold, since he hates Britain as much as America.

The Rosenbergs: pure moonbat evil.

60 Minutes confirms Benghazi is a real scandal, and you’ve been lied to

Obama Hillary Benghazi caskets

Legal Insurrection

60 Minutes had an absolutely devastating report on the Obama administration’s failure to protect Ambassador Chris Stevens and other Americans in Benghazi.

I’ll post the video when available (update – available and added), but the heart of the report is that there were clear and unequivocal warnings which were ignored, and the Obama administration lied about these warnings after the attack.

Hillary and Obama blamed a video and stood by the caskets perpetuating that lie.

And remember how almost all of the media obsessed with Mitt Romney’s statement over Benghazi, and colluded to ask Romney gotcha questions while downplaying and obfuscating what really happened.

60 Minutes said its investigation took almost a year.

BREAKING: CBS News suppressed 60 Minutes video to protect Obama on Benghazi, Libya

Family Security Matters

There’s no way to spin this – it’s pure, unadulterated, blatantly  obvious  media bias, in which information extremely damaging to Barack  Obama was kept  from the public, to protect the President at a moment of  crisis.

CBS News has finally revealed the full contents of the   interview Barack Obama gave to Steve Kroft of “60 Minutes” on September  12,  2012 – the day after the terrorist attack in Benghazi, which the  President and  his people would go on to misrepresent as a “spontaneous  protest” for weeks, in  addition to stonewalling every inquiry into their  handling of consular security  before and during the attack.

The Muslim Brotherhood, Nazis and Al-Qaeda

I had an unusual education in the Holocaust. When I was working for the Attorney General, I was assigned to do the classified research about the Holocaust, so I went underground to a little town called Suitland, Maryland, right outside Washington, D.C., and that’s where the U.S. government buries its secrets — literally.

There are twenty vaults underground and each vault is one acre in size. Anyone see the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark”? The last scene of that movie is what the underground vaults are really like, only not as organized as they are in the movie. And in those underground vaults I discovered something horrible.

I learned that many of the Nazis that I had been assigned to prosecute were on the CIA payroll, but the CIA didn’t know they were Nazis because the British Intelligence Service had lied to them. What the British Intelligence Service didn’t know was that their liar was Kim Philby, the Soviet communist double agent — a little scandal of the Cold War. But our State Department swept it all under the rug and allowed the Nazis to stay in America until I was stupid enough to go public with it.
