Exploding the Watergate Myth A new book

And lied. And lied.

Original Article

I was a child of the Watergate generation. Vacationing at a lake house the summer I was 17, I spent weeks glued to the committee hearings on TV. Back in school that fall, I wrote a paper arguing that Nixon should resist pressure to resign. Headed south the next August, I watched Nixon’s resignation speech at a motor lodge on I-95 and the next day, on the highway, listened on the car radio as Gerald R. Ford declared “our long national nightmare” over.


I've never believed most of the Watergate myth

There was always another big question about Watergate: why would the Nixon White House have wanted to burglarize Democratic headquarters in the first place? It was already obvious that Nixon was heading for a landslide victory. He didn’t need any DNC dirt. Even in the movie, an unnamed editor at the Post, played by John McMartin, tells Bradlee: “I don’t believe the story. It doesn’t make sense.” The motive for the burglary remained murky for decades.

When Nixon resigned, and as he left the White House and stepped onto Marine One, I was driving past Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary. I never understood why he stepped down.

Democrats have lied about their intentions, their morals, their honor and humility for DECADES!! They are nothing but Plantion Lord wanna-be and they look at everyone they have any hold on, as their slaves - their property, or obstacles to dispose of. It's not a joke when some asks, rhetorically, "How do you know when a Democrat lies?". Answer: "Their lips move." Though these days, they also pay MSM to lie for them.

Pull quote from the article: "Its actual purpose was to protect a whole raft of covert operations that involved “the entire U.S. intelligence community - the FBI, CIA, Justice.” History repeats itself in the attempt to bring down Mr. Trump from the weaponization of these entitites, and may shed light on the "Haldeman Diaries" quote about opening a scab about "the whole Bay of Pigs thing" RMN was reported to have said in the book. Mark Felt ("deep throat") turned when he found out the he was not going to be made Director of the Feebies. Liddy and his cadre actually got caught on the 2ND break in with Howard Hunt flying the coop to Spain just after. A few of those involved actually had been involved in the BoP operation, and later with Iran-Contra as well! A lot has happened in the intervening years, and as the maxim says "the more things change, the more they stay the same"...

Nixon's greatest crime was beating McGovern in an historic, nationwide landslide. No one in the media knew anyone who voted for Nixon. Nixon therefore had to be punished. Trump's greatest crime was beating Hillary. It was her turn, dammit! No one in the media knew anyone who voted for Trump. Trump therefore had to be punished.

And the reason the CIA wanted information on prostitution that was in the hands of the DNC? The CIA wanted to have as much power over the politicians entrapped in this sex trap as the DNC held over them. And the same thing is going on today with the list of people wlho received favors from Jeffrey Epstein's young ladies. The same old DNC.

Watergate was much to do about nothing. It was also the start of gotcha journalism and journalism schools training people to become another Woodward and Bernstein type of journalist. Presenting the truth no longer was the goal in journalism. It was all about being noticed and the bigger the lie the journalist could promote, the higher the prestige that journalist could attain. So stories were written with half truths and the goal of journalists basically became a LOOK AT ME goal.

Every Republican President has been harrassed, ran out of office, been one termed, impeached, persecuted and prosecuted, and largely been unable to govern due to sabotage from government agencies. The sabotage has worsened as the tech and woke companies have joined the effort. Republicans can no longer govern, not without a total change away from their passiveness, and prosecution of the Democrats for their criminality.

John Dean was at the heart of Watergate. Read G. Gordon Liddy's "Will". Woodruff and Bernstein ignored Dean. They wanted Nixon's scalp.

This period of history extremely important for younger Republicans to read about because they need to know that Nixon, as Trump has been, was betrayed by his own party who were too gutless to stand by their man under fire. Until the GOP leadership is purged of these greedy globalists, I really don’t know how we beat the encroaching communism.

Correction officers are using Covid as an excuse to withhold political prisoners from access to basic necessities and bar inmates incarcerated for protesting the stolen 2020 election from visitation rights, Stager notes.

Returns are not counted for days. It is intolerable for a modern democracy to wait and wait for all sorts of ballots both cast and counted under radically different and sometimes dubious conditions. The Democrats – with overwhelming media and money advantages – have mastered these arts of massive and unprecedented early, mail-in, and absentee voting. Old-fashioned Republicans count on riling up their voters to show up on Election Day. But it is far easier to finesse and control the mail-in ballots than to ‘get out the vote.’

The Two Mikes were joined about an hour ago by Lt. General Thomas McInerney (ret’d), who presented a brief report on last night’s election results. General McInerney said the election was a repeat of 2020 with widespread vote manipulation by the Democrats and their Chinese paymasters. The general pointed especially to Pennsylvania and Arizona, reporting that 330 thousand votes were shifted from Dr. Oz to Fetterman, and in Arizona about 36,000 were shifted from Kari Lake to Hobbs. This kind of thing, he said, occurred across the country.

I spent well over 30 years of my career in higher education, and for most of that time, I enjoyed a good debate with my peers. As a conservative, I was often in the minority, but that didn’t impede mutual respect, nor did it hinder friendships. Political differences were stark, but nearly all of them boiled down to disputes over means and not ends. All of us, for example, agreed that child care was a good thing.

Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson will be able to weigh in on a lawsuit surrounding alleged discriminatory college admissions practices after the high court decoupled a pair of cases surrounding affirmative action policies at Harvard University and the University of North Carolina , Chapel Hill. Jackson, who was sworn in as the first black woman on the high court last month, said in March that she planned to recuse herself from the previously consolidated lawsuits during her Senate Judiciary Committee hearings due to her role on Harvard's Board of Overseers, which concluded on May 26. But last Friday, the Supreme Court made a procedural step to separate the cases,

The debate about recession risk is pointless. We are already in a recession. Real GDP (gross domestic product) in the United States declined at an annual rate of 1.6% in the first quarter. The Atlanta Fed Nowcast shows a 1.5% contraction in the second quarter. But the underlying figures are scarier. According to the Atlanta Fed, “the GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the second quarter of 2022 is -1.5% on July 15, down from -1.2% on July 8”. That is an enormous negative change, -0.3% of GDP, in one week.

Former President Donald Trump has superpowers. That much was established when he first stepped onto the political scene in 2015 and demonstrated his uncanny ability to transform folks on the left into crazed caricatures of themselves just by giving an utterance. It seemed that anytime he so much as sneezed, it immediately caused those who are left of center to have a collective meltdown. But now, he has revealed another superhuman talent: The ability to turn Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis into a Romneyesque neocon just by saying unkind words about him. That’s right. Ever since Trump took a few shots at the person believed to be his most formidable opponent

As Republican Adam Laxalt’s lead in the Nevada Senate race dwindles with 93% of the vote counted, his campaign is reportedly “bracing for a loss” and weighing asking for a recount. Laxalt is ahead of incumbent Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto by just 800 votes after 23,000 mail-in ballots were tabulated in Clark County on Friday. The results from the mail-in ballots are favoring Cortez Masto at a 2-1 rate. Clark County, home to Las Vegas, reportedly has about 27,000 mail-in ballots left to be counted.

Nevada incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto survived a challenge, defeating Republican Adam Laxalt and helping Democrats hold onto U.S. Senate, according to the Associated Press call of the race. Nevada was one of Republicans' top targets as they tried to break the Senate's 50-50 split, and Cortez Masto's reelection was a toss-up coming into the election. She was running neck and neck with Laxalt, Nevada's former attorney general who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump. Cortez Masto served two terms as Nevada's attorney general before becoming the first Latina ever elected to the U.S. Senate in 2016. She campaigned on women's reproductive rights,

Control of the Senate still hung in the balance on Friday, forcing Senate Republicans to briefly put aside their intraparty blame game as they go all-in on winning Georgia’s Senate runoff. The Senate majority could be decided in the coming days if Democrats defend the seats they hold in both Arizona and Nevada, where votes continue to be counted. But if the GOP picks up just one of those seats, Senate control will be determined by a Dec. 6 runoff election in the Peach State. GOP operatives continued to express optimism about the party’s chances of picking up a seat in Nevada

(Snip) Did we really think that the people in power could afford a resounding victory for populists? Many of them belong in jail, all of them are on the take, from county councilor to lobbyist to senior bureaucrat to judge, and most of them live their lives swinging between triumph and terror that they will be caught.
