(Liberty Bell) – Julius and Ethel Rosenberg are two of the most notorious spies in US history.
In 1951, they were found guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage and were sentenced to death (as all those who conspire against our nation should be).
They had been passing top-secret information about the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union, and were the first American citizens to be convicted and executed for espionage during peacetime.

Julius Rosenberg, who was a very open communist, reportedly recruited Ethel’s brother, David Greenglass, to give information to the Soviets. While he was serving in the US Army, Greenglass has been assigned to work on the famous Manhattan Project, which led to the creation of the atomic bomb.
Greenglass successfully delivered notes and sketches of classified materials to Julius Rosenberg. Ethel then toon the notes and typed them up for the Soviets, according to Greenglass. This accusation is the only direct evidence that Ethel was involved in her husband’s spying activities.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower said of the Rosenbergs before their executions, “I can only say that, by immeasurably increasing the chances of atomic war, the Rosenbergs may have condemned to death tens of millions of innocent people all over the world. The execution of two human beings is a grave matter. But even graver is the thought of the millions of dead whose deaths may be directly attributable to what these spies have done.”
Back in January 2017, as Barack Obama was looking for politically-charged pardons to issue, one Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) wrote for him requesting Ethel Rosenberg be added to the list.
This woman wants to be our president, and among the political issues, she considers the most important is apparently the cleared name of a woman who was privy to dangerous anti-American espionage and most likely a communist herself.
This should be career-killing for any American politician, but this woman is not that far off from potentially securing her party’s nomination for president in 2020.
Let that sink in.
