Last Thursday, Heritage expert Helle Dale sat down with Grace Kennan Warnecke, Chairman of the Board of the National Committee on American Foreign Policy, to talk about Warnecke’s firsthand experiences with the Cold War and the Soviet Union.

What lessons can we learn from the Cold War today?
(1) Communism is, always has been, and always will be, a system of murder, thievery, and oppression.
(2) Don’t trust a communist beyond spitting distance.

They are an existential threat to the Constitution and American liberty.
