TREASON: Stealing and Giving Russia the U.S. Plans on How to Make Nuclear Weapons
On June 19th 1953, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, Citizens of the United States and communist sympathizers, were put to death in the electric chair after having been convicted of violating the U.S. Espionage act; of heading a ring of spies that stole and conveyed to the USSR the plans to build what were then termed "atomic bombs."
The couple married in 1939. In 1940, Julius joined the Army and was assigned to the Signal Corps, where he almost immediately began passing military secrets to Soviet agents assigned to embassies, involving U.S. developments in radio transmissions, sonar and jet propulsion.
Ethel had a brother, David Greenglass, who at the behest of his sister and brother-in-law, joined the Army and obtained employment at the plant at Oak Ridge Tennessee where fissionable material was enriched. He was later assigned to work at the super-secret laboratory at Los Alamos, New Mexico, where he joined a team that made molds out of TNT for the high-explosive lenses used to detonate the uranium and plutonium cores, setting off chain reactions of monumental magnitude. Two of these bombs, each of a slightly different design, ultimately produced explosions that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki Japan and most of the people there, when dropped from on the cities from U.S. aircraft.
After components were developed at Los Alamos and tested at White Sands, near Alamogordo, New Mexico, Greenglass somehow obtained the plans for the nuclear weapons and conveyed them through Harry Gold, a Philadelphia chemist and co-conspirator, who then gave them to the Russian Vice Counsel for New York, Anatoli Yakov. He immediately set off for Moscow with them. This accounts for the rapid development of nuclear weapons in the USSR and the stockpiles of them there today.
In the meantime, Great Britain had been following the career of Klaus Fuchs, a German-born physicist also employed by a British division of the "Manhattan Project," as the closely-held secret project was called When the Brits discovered that Fuchs was sending reports on the development of nuclear weapons to Russia, they arrested him on suspicion of illegal espionage. He gave up Gold, who gave up Greenglass, who implicated his brother-in law and sister, and that was that.
Well, not quite. In a plea bargain, Greenglass was sentenced to 15 years in prison. I have often wondered how he so easily infiltrated the Manhattan Project. I have always suspected that some yet unnamed person or agency was responsible. We may never know, for David Greenglass took that secret to his grave in 2014.
Harry Gold, convicted of being a courier for Fuchs, was sentenced to 30 years behind bars and died in 1972. Morton Sobel, an engineer once employed by General Electric, while working on government and military contracts, was also found guilty of spying for the Soviets. He spent 18 years in jail before admitting that he and his friend Julius had been agents for Russia.
Documents revealed by the KGB after the breakup of the Soviet Union and before the appearance of Vladimir Putin in Moscow, further confirmed the guilt of the Rosenbergs and other of their communist cohorts.
Now, President Trump, THIS WAS TREASON. Refusing to obey your fiats and political tweets, is not
