Listen here for my latest episode of Secure Freedom Radio with Frank Gaffney.

Listen here to my latest episode of the Audrey Russo Show.

Continuing to rummage through my clip box, I came across a piece I wrote when I was just a couple of years out of college, which is to say, I knew nothing about Roy Cohn and even less about his most famous boss, Sen. Joseph McCarthy. Nonetheless, it was 1986, Cohn was in the news, and there I was at his Upper East Side townhouse, getting the inside skinny, or something.

Until today, I had not laid eyes on this piece in the intervening decades. At some point, though, especially after my post-2008 acquaintance with the legend and life of Joseph McCarthy, which started here, I began to wonder what in tarnation I might have written. 

Here it is -- my profile of Roy Cohn from another time and place. As I recall, the dramatic photo of Cohn won a Washington Press Association prize for my friend, the photographer Stephen Crowley, who went on to spend a long career at the New York Times.

This (above) is a screenshot of the Twitter account of the late Mike Adams. I just saw the horrendous news that the professor and columnist and pro-life / free speech warrior was found dead of a gunshot wound earlier this week in his home in North Carolina. He was 55.

In deference to a woke cadre of writers working in the building, Lorimar Studios agreed to strip away the golden-era-mega-star's name from The Robert Taylor Building, a simple, white, three-storey building next door to the Jean Harlow and Fred Astaire buildings.

Why? Robert Taylor had not discovered America, co-founded the Republic or led Confederate soldiers into battle. He was an actor, a screen idol, and the longest contract player in MGM history. But he was also an anti-communist and a patriot, and when he was invited to testify before the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1947, he traveled to Washington and told the committee what he knew from long experience about Moscow-coordinated, Communist...

Just as we were about to go live with the webinar "Today's Communist Insurrection" at the Center for Security Policy, one of the producers said to me, "Don't be nervous, Alan Keyes just joined the audience."
