Barry Nussbaum: Hello and welcome to ATP Report. I’m Barry Nussbaum. We are honored and so happy to have back with us, National security expert Clare Lopez. Clare is the founder of Lopez Liberty, LLC. She’s got a background in American foreign service. She’s a national security expert. She’s a former CIA big shot, and we’re thrilled to have her back. Hello, Clare.
Clare Lopez: Hey, Barry. Thank you very much. I’m glad to be back with you anytime.
Barry Nussbaum: I want to tell our audience that I am astounded by the theory and evidence to back your theory that you have sent to me. I consider the show we are about to do, and we’re going to do a follow-up after, one of the most important things you and I have ever discussed. In maybe out of the thousand-plus shows ATP has done, this is in the top one or two percent.
You have come up with an understanding of what’s happening in America that was predicted a generation ago by some really, really bad people, and everything that was written and predicted has come true. Tell us, in brief, what the heck I’m so upset about?
Clare Lopez: Well, Barry, what we’re talking about was written in a book called The Naked Communist. The Naked Communist is a book that was written in 1958 by a former FBI agent named W. Cleon Skousen. From his, at that point in time, decades of experience with the FBI and up against communism.
As well, his understanding of the testimony that I think he either heard, read about, or took notes about in the congressional hearings of earlier in the 1950s by Communist and former Communist who came to testify as witnesses in front of the House on un-American Activities Committee and also in the Senate, Senator Joseph McCarthy’s committee.
He put together the book because he wanted to sort of consolidate in one place for Americans to have easy access to read and understand what he had come to understand about the communist threat that was infiltrating the US government and every sector of American society.
