British MI-5 Files Reveal Another Cold War Soviet Agent

For decades, the stalwarts of the American Left depicted all accused of disloyalty in the so-called “McCarthyite” era as victims of the Cold War and an American “witch-hunt.” One such individual, who until his death made a good living portraying himself in this fashion, was Cedric Belfrage, a British expatriate who lived in the U.S. from the 40s until 1955.

Belfrage was the founder and editor-in-chief of what was the major fellow-traveling American weekly newspaper, The National Guardian, which was created in 1948 as an adjunct of the presidential campaign of Henry A. Wallace on the Progressive Party ticket. The British subject Belfrage was hauled before both Senator McCarthy’s Senate subcommittee and by HUAC in the 1950s, where he invoked the Fifth Amendment. Eventually, he was arrested and deported back to Britain in 1955.

    With the opening of the Soviet archives after the fall of communism, pretty much everything that McCarthy was saying was found to be true. To this day the Progressives are still spinning the lie that he was wrong.

      The only thing that McCarthy was mistaken about was that he missed naming all of them at the time. As for the “witch hunt” it was carried out against McCarthy.

    And once more McCarthy is proven right.

  • McCarthy was right, though he underestimated the magnitude of the threat (or probably didn’t have the resources and support to catch every traitor).

    Senator Joseph McCarthy was supposedly even being groomed as a possible presidential or VP material by those with high level friends in the American intelligence establishment to be their cold war version of Winston Churchill. Might have worked too in the radio age but television, especially b&w TV, was not very flattering when it came to the senator. The reds quickly realized that and tailored their lame excuse messages to fit.
    One shining light on the HUAC at the beginning of his political life in Washington was Bobby Kennedy. But much like Kerry in Vietnam, his rainmakers soon determined greener fields lay elsewhere in politics and little is ever heard now of Bobby’s earlier “anticommunist witch hunting” exploits.
