The list author says: "What most Americans mistakingly regard today as the "Conservative movement" has undergone many convoluted and dramatic transformations over the past sixty years. Perhaps the most keen observer has been Murray N. Rothbard, the internationally acclaimed economist and historian. How this disinformation process began is detailed in three insightful articles, "Life in the Old Right," "The Foreign Policy of the Old Right," and "The Transformation of the American Right," available online. However, Rothbard's long-awaited book, The Betrayal of the American Right, tells the full story of how this subversive movement at war with American liberties and the rule of law, came about. "Conservatism," since the days of Burke and Robespierre, has stood for the status quo and an apologia for tyranny."
"The Ron Paul Revolution among millions of dedicated Americans from every age group, socioeconomic, ethnocultural background is a true phenomenon. Ron Paul has an exceptional ability to discuss complex economic and political issues in an easy to understand presentation. The Old Right is back, challenging the welfare-warfare state once again!"
"For those who have been neoconned into believing that conservatism means unquestioned support for the warfare state, Ainít My America is the perfect way to show that real conservatives defend peace and liberty." óRon Paul"
"How an elite group of intelligence operatives (William F. Buckley, James Burnham, Willmoore Kendall, William J. Casey, et al) created the synthetic New Right "Conservative movement" and its flagship publication, National Review magazine, to destroy the Old Right opposition to the welfare/warfare state."
"See my Amazon.com review. E. Howard Hunt (and William F. Buckley Jr. who wrote this book's forward) fail to come clean about the CIA's clandestine role in the founding of National Review magazine and the "Conservative" movement."
"Buckley as FBI shill/informant at Yale and his CIA stint with E. Howard Hunt (Watergate conspirator). God and Man at Yale, published by Regnery, revealed as "vanity press" endeavor, his family (operating as secretive Catawba Company) financing book's publication/promotion. Hunt later revealed the CIA subsidized Regnery during this period."
"Controversial anti-Eisenhower biography dared attack director Allen Dulles and the CIA -- prompting CIA "Conservatives" William F. Buckley and James Burnham to viciously declare Welch and his Old Right John Birch Society anathema."
"How CIA operatives covertly funded and molded the anti-Stalinist, former Trotskyist New York intellectuals into today's "Neoconservatives." CIA-sponsored publications like Encounter were directed at the Left, National Review at the Right."
"Excellent collection of scholarly articles relating to Neoconservatism and the War in Iraq. In particular see E. Michael Jones, Ph.D, "Manipulating Catholic Support for the War: The Black Operation Known as 'Conservatism,'" which draws upon Gregory P. Pavlik's pioneering 1997 piece, "Neoconservatism: A CIA Front?" which is available online."
"Garet Garrett's Salvos Against the New Deal should be required reading for "conservatives" & "neoconservatives" in order to see how your FDR-worshipping leaders have betrayed your historical patrimony"
"Garet Garrett had no equal in pointing out the callous, corrupt, and politically expedient nature of Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman and their New Deal/Fair Deal schemes to regiment America and ensnare the globe. The People's pottage is available in an online edition at Mises.org"
"Excellent companion to Doenecke's Not To The Swift (above) on the non-interventionist Old Right opposition to the National Security warfare/welfare state. Available in an online edition at http://www.mises.org/journals/lar/pdfs/1_1/1_1_3.pdf"
"The Bricker Amendment to the United States Constitution was a popular effort by the people to put a constitutional restraint on usurpation of foreign policy decision-making by an out-of-control executive branch who waged unconstitutional, undeclared wars by centralizing power in the presidency. Sound familiar?"
"The grass-roots Bricker Amendment reform movement was smashed by Establishment elites allied with the Council on Foreign Relations in both political parties. This was the "last stand" opposition of the Old Right. Next followed fifty years of interventionism, from Vietnam to Iraq, from Ike to Obama."
"The Bricker Amendment and the Liberty Amendment (see below) were a two-pronged effort by popular forces of the Old Right to restrain an out-of-control federal government at home and abroad, to put an end to the welfare/warfare state."
"Old Right crusader Willis E. Stone was the heroic leader of the Liberty Amendment Committee who wanted to repeal the Sixteenth Amendment, which created the federal income tax. This little book documents the massive unconstitutional expenditures by the federal government which would end with this great abolitionist reform."
"Frank Chodorov was one of the last great champions of the Old Right. He had a tremendous influence upon both Murray N. Rothbard, and ironically, William F. Buckley Jr. Available in an online edition at Mises.org"
"Colonel Robert McCormick's Chicago Tribune was the commanding editorial voice of MidWestern Old Right non-interventionism and opposition to the New Deal/Fair Deal welfare/warfare state. The Colonel died in 1955, the year Buckley's National Review began. With his passing so expired the Old Right."
"Insightful exploration of four major figures of the post-WWII "Conservative Movement" grouped around Buckley's National Review magazine - former Trotskyists James Burnham and Max Eastman, novelist John Dos Passos, and radical labor organizer Will Herberg. Especially good on Burnham's background and seminal influence on Buckley and the founding of NR."
"William F. Buckley Jr. was friends with the enigmetic CIA "liberal" Lowenstein. This book provides insight of how the Agency operated domestically and globally in terms of manipulating liberalism and conservatism."
