Andrew C. McCarthy – This one is still alive

30 Jul

I have noticed in my short span of time since I created this blog that I have focused on personalities of the Name that are deceased. In the spirit of also promoting and advancing the Clan in the present and future I bring to you Andrew McCarthy…

Andrew was formally educated at Columbia University and New York Law school. Andrew may not have chosen arms to wage war against our enemies, as tradition dictates, but he has waged war in a different capacity.

Andrew was an assistant to the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. This position allowed him to lead the prosecution team against the terrorists of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He also helped to prosecute other terrorists that bombed U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania (yes, we have an embassy there).

I think we can all understand the problem with prosecuting our enemies in courts of law when the proper venue for that is the battlefield. But Andrew did what he could with the capacities given to him and would latter publicly state this position himself.

In today’s world we often find our greatest enemy is our own lack of clarity in thought, a wrong sense of right and wrong, and a lack of understanding due to a dearth in lessons that history should have taught us. Andrew now provides some of that clarity and some of those lessons. Presently he is a columnist for the National Review and has written several books.

Purchase his books and read his column. You will find some well presented insight.

    I am not a member of the CLAN but I might as well be. Being Jewish I feel a close kinship with Andrew C. McCarthy who is undoubtedly on of the greatest of AMERICAN PATRIOTS. His writings, legal and current, about the goings on of Islam and all the rest are without exception of the very best. He is the leading interlocutor in the world today and he does it clearly and concisely.

    “Being Jewish I feel a close kinship with Andrew C. McCarthy…”
    Why? What does being Jewish have to do with this close kinship you feel?
