“The advance agents of the communist conspiracy loudly promise the peoples of these countries a better way of life. We know that communism cannot deliver on these promises. We know that the way of freedom actually can and will provide a better life for people everywhere. But only through such action as the Point IV program can we demonstrate that fact in concrete and practical terms.” — Harry S. Truman

“The new law which I am signing today includes one of the many recommendations made by this Administration to support existing statutes in defeating the Communist conspiracy in this country. Administratively, we have in the past 19 months stepped up enforcement of laws against subversives. As a result, 41 top Communist leaders have been convicted, 35 more are indicted and scheduled for trial, and 105 subversive aliens have been deported.” — Dwight D. Eisenhower

Michael O’Brien (John F. Kennedy: A Biography, 1900) wrote, “He (JFK) warned of ‘the Communist conspiracy,’ ‘the Communist tide,’ ‘Communist efforts,’ and ‘the Communist advance.’ The United States must ‘bear the burden … of helping freedom defend itself’ in South Vietnam. Kennedy’s key advisers agreed.”

“When [Lyndon] Johnson took office, he affirmed the Kennedy administration’s commitments. He quickly approved NSAM 273, a national security agency memorandum, on November 26, 1963, which directed the U.S. government ‘to assist the people and Government of South Vietnam to win their contest against the externally directed and supported Communist conspiracy.'”

Marjorie Hunter (“Special to The New York Times,” Aug. 9, 1974) wrote, “A onetime isolationist, as suspicious of a worldwide Communist conspiracy as Mr. Nixon once was, Mr. [Gerald] Ford took his first steps toward becoming an internationalist under the tutelage of an old family friend, the late Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg, Republican of Michigan.”

Anthony Lewis (The New York Times, Oct. 24, 1983) wrote, “The theme of Communist conspiracy has also been a Reagan constant. In a 1978 radio broadcast he said that ‘known members of terrorist organizations and even Communist Party members cannot only become civil servants in government but can rise to the most sensitive government positions.’ In another broadcast he spoke of people opposed to nuclear power. It was a ‘fact,’ he said, ‘that behind the scenes they are being manipulated by forces sympathetic to the Soviet Union.'”
