Excerpt from the September 1967 Phyllis Schlafly Report
Before the Administration backed up on the Panama Canal treaties, we interviewed some Republican Senators. To our shock and amazement, we discovered that several did not intend to oppose the treaties. Why? Because, they confided in a hushed whisper, the treaties had been “negotiated” by a “Republican”, Robert B. Anderson, who served as Secretary of the Treasury in the Eisenhower Administration.
Robert B. Anderson is the same man who was first revealed on page 109 of A Choice Not An Echo as one of “the most trusted agents of the kingmakers because they . . . move with ease in and out of both parties.” Back in 1964, A Choice Not An Echo said: “For highly placed Republicans to accept appointments from Democrats is destructive of the two-party system. . . . Trading in and out of both parties confuses the issues and especially the responsibility — which is indeed the motive of the kingmakers who direct this traffic as easily as an expert playing chess. This is also a technique which has been used by Democrats to undercut Republican opposition to Democrat policies.”
It is high time we repudiate those pseudo-Republicans who, having enjoyed patronage under a Republican Administration, then turncoat and serve the Democrat Administration, pulling LBJ’s chestnuts out of the fire. We elect our Senators to represent us and to protect American interests. We do not expect them to take orders from the New York kingmakers or financiers, such as Robert B. Anderson (partner of Carl M. Loeb, Rhoades & Co., New York financial firm), who do not represent the best interests either of America or of the Republican Party.
