Many sinister events that transpired during the clash of the world’s superpowers at the close of World War II and the ensuing Cold War era have been ignored, distorted, and kept hidden from the public. Through a meticulous examination of primary sources and disclosure of formerly secret records, this riveting account of the widespread infiltration of the U.S. federal government by Stalin’s “agents of influence” and the damage they inflicted is a shock to readers (”Stalin’s Secret Agents – The Subversion of Roosevelt’s Government” by M. Stanton Evans and Herbert Romerstein, 304 pages, Threshold Editions, 2012).

Focusing on the wartime conferences of Teheran and Yalta, veteran journalist M. Stanton Evans and intelligence expert Herbert Romerstein, the former head of the U.S. Office to Counter Soviet Disinformation, drew upon years of research and a meticulous examination of primary sources to trace the vast deception that kept Stalin’s henchmen on the federal payroll and sabotaged policy overseas in favor of the Soviet Union. While FDR’s health and mental capacities weakened, aides such as Lauchlin Currie and Harry Hopkins exerted influence on U.S. policy—leading to massive breaches of internal security and the betrayal of free-world interests.

A two part contribution will addressed the problem of the then Democratic American administrations in the 1940s and 1950s promoting Mao’s communist insurgents in China. It started in earnest in Chiang Kai-shek’s temporary capital of Chungking in 1944. Three functionaries of the U.S. and Nationalist Chinese governments had crucial roles to play in the events that lead to Mao taking power in China in 1949.

One was U.S. diplomat John Stewart Service. Another was the U.S, Treasury attaché Sol Adler and finally there was U.S. educated Chinese economist Chi Chao-ting, who worked for the Kuomintang ministry of finance. They detested Chiang’s government. They wanted to injure Chiang and promote the communist rebels in Yenan province.
