Morris Kominsky (September 28, 1901 — April 1975) was the author of The Hoaxers: Plain Liars, Fancy Liars and Damned Liars (1970).
The Hoaxers was intended, as stated in its preface, to be the first of two volumes in his "study of the trends in the United States of America towards Fascism and a Third World War." The second volume America Faces Disaster was never published; Kominsky indicated he intended that it would tell "the story of the groups, individuals, and policies that endanger the citizens of the U.S.A., as well as the rest of mankind" (Kominsky 14). Prior to publishing The Hoaxers, the working title for the two volumes was Countdown—USA
The Hoaxers is a "special study of the use of fabrications, distortions of truth, and out-of-context quotations." It examines such works as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the "Ten Cannots" of William J. H. Boetcker commonly misattributed to Abraham Lincoln and conspiracy theories such as the Bilderberg Group Conspiracy and the Illuminati. The book received favorable advance comments from Robert W. Kenny and Congressman Dalip Singh Saund among others, as printed on the dustcover.
