WATERGATE! If you’re old enough to remember and too young to know, because the education system failed to teach the history of it………….it is a mild joke compared to the BULL SHIT of today!
OUR GOVERNMENT is as corrupt as any government in the history of the world.
All those 3 letter agencies………….The FBI, DOJ, CIA and IRS lead the way in corruption. Criminal activity that is mob like.
I’ve been relatively quiet for quite sometime……………WELL I AM BACK………AND I AM HOLDING NOTHING BACK.
WE THE PEOPLE need to raid Hillary’s house, drag Hunter Biden out on the street from the house the Government is protecting him
in (yeah, he is being guarded because they believe they need to protect him from WE THE PEOPLE)……….they may be right! Then there is the BIG GUY……..JOE BIDEN himself………(Mr. 10% from all Hunter’s pay days with China, Ukraine and Russia). OHHHH! No wrong doing there! Espionage Act? There is espionage for you! But………you know, now Archives has those docs on the Russian Collusion missing. The FBI cleaned their own messes up, just like a mob organization.
We are fully in the middle of a 3rd World scumbag governed country!
Woodward and Bernstein of/and the Washington Post, were all in on Watergate, the break-in and the Nixon cover-up. So much so it occupied all their investigative and reporting time with the Post. They were more than aggressive, they became part of the cover-up story. The more people they interviewed (their informants etc.) the more there was to cover-up. It was a huge story for these investigative reporters, writers and authors. They were relentless! Breaking into Watergate, DNC Headquarters was a biggggg deal. Today? Will, yes it still would be if broken into DNC headquarters, Republican headquarters probably not so much. Watergate was a Nixon, Republican scandal……….a major presidential resignation type event. What has changed since 1972/73? Not much as the media wanted to destroy Donald Trump, and now leaving a most scandal ridden Joe Biden alone!
The business dealings Joe Biden was involved with, with China was/is more than just business deals. It is the buying of influence, favors, positioning, and really who knows what else. It is the kind of influence that can be bought by a country that benefits them when they invade another country like Taiwan. (We bought you Joe, so when we help you into the presidency, you’ll let us walk into Taiwan untouched). All this under the cover of Hunter Biden’s business, partnerships with China and the Ukraine. (The Biden’s have been paid over $31 Million dollars, from the Chinese alone, high ranking Chinese.)
Connect the dots, all this money to Joe, via Hunter’s name to get to Daddy (19 visits to the White House by the Chinese to meet with Joe, they didn’t go there to talk to Hunter.) (Ooops, just learned they have discovered 8 more visits on the WH log of visitors, now up to 27). We also know the Big Guy (The code name for Joe in “HUNTER’S BUSINESS”) received at least 10% of money from HUNTER’S BUSINESS (but Joe frequently claimed he never discussed Hunter’s business with him). THAT IS A BLATANT LIE, told many times. Besides, what father NEVER discusses a son’s business with his son? NEVER? Like I said, blatant lie. All that money with the Chinese connections as VP. Joe gets into the presidency, probably with the help of China. Think not? Trump’s team claims to have evidence of CHINESE INTERFENCE in the election. It’s been explained how it was done, but I am not going into all that here, it’s too complicated. And that isn’t the purpose of this post. The Chinese have bought influence and have made Joe Biden a compromised U.S. President. Another words, China owns Joe Biden. Hunter is nothing more than a doped up Trojan Horse. What the Biden’s have done is treasonous! So, where is the media now? I get it Woodward and Bernstein are too old to do what they did in 1972. Not sure they would today, unless the president was Trump. They’d go after him. Where is the Main Stream Media? What the Biden’s have allegedly done is far greater than a beak-in. Obama is not innocent here either. He had to know Joe was meeting all those Chinese folks in Obama’s time in the White House. They weren’t there for just a friendly chat.
Today you have the media covering-up Biden. If they don’t make it news, it never happened. That is your liberal (socialist) media today. Covering up acts of treason makes you treasonous. Most of the MSM is treasonous. Instead of reporting truth, they become part of the news (lies and cover-up).
Added late comment: As I mentioned above 8 more visits of Hunter’s partners to the White House. The number is now 27. Apparently someone is investigating, probably FOX.
So how does Hillary, Obama, Biden, and their goons who carried out the spying (FBI, Comey) escape! Because this group of corruption is the core of the Deep State! Still at it!
The Watergate scandal began after President Richard Nixon started an investigative team in his administration known as the “Plumbers.” The Plumbers’ first purpose was to stop the information leaking in the White House after the release of the Pentagon Papers. They were funded by secret campaign contributions to the Committee to Reelect the President or CREEP. The Plumbers conducted many off-the-book activities like harassing political enemies and protestors outside of Republican events. The actions of the Plumbers hit a boiling point when top administration officials were implicated in the burglary of the Democratic Party’s headquarters at the Watergate Hotel in 1972.
A select Senate committee investigated the break-in. The Committee learned that Nixon taped his White House meetings. When Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox tried to obtain these tapes, Nixon ordered Attorney General Elliot Richardson to fire Cox. When Richardson and his deputy refused, Nixon fired them both in what came to be known as the Saturday Night Massacre. Afterward, Nixon turned over nine tapes, but one had a near twenty-minute gap. This gap was deliberate. In response to Nixon’s actions, the House Judiciary Committee began an impeachment inquiry and new Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski demanded the missing time gap and more tapes.
President Nixon refused to turn over the rest of the tapes, claiming executive privilege. Executive privilege is the right of the executive branch to withhold information to preserve confidentiality and maintain national security. The Court had to solve two issues, one of which was the separation of power allegations from the Nixon administration, which claimed the courts had no right to investigate the President. The other was Article II claims about broad executive privilege. The Supreme Court had to determine how to balance executive privilege with judicial review, the ability of the courts to decide the constitutionality of actions of the other two branches.
In a unanimous decision, the Court ruled that the separation of powers claims and executive privilege claims did not withstand. While the Court acknowledged executive privilege, they stressed that it is limited and that due process is most vital. The President was told to produce the tapes. Justice Warren Burger authored the opinion for the Court writing, “The generalized assertion of privilege must yield to the demonstrated, specific need for evidence in a pending criminal trial.” Justice Rehnquist removed himself from the case since he had previously been involved in the Nixon administration.
The Supreme Court’s decision was fatal to Nixon’s Presidency. He was forced to release the tapes and the time missing showed that the President had conspired to give millions to the Watergate Hotel burglars and wanted to claim “national security” reasons for the break-in. Nixon’s former Attorney General, John Mitchell, orchestrated the Watergate break-in. It was discovered that Nixon’s chief of staff, H.R. Haldeman, wanted to use the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for political espionage.
After discovering this information, Nixon’s previous Republican allies told him to resign or risk impeachment. Nixon resigned from office on August 8, 1974. The Supreme Court decision had unusually dramatic consequences but it also was innovative as it combined claims of executive privilege and a criminal proceeding. The decision sent a message to future leaders of the United States that the president is not above the law, and cannot claim privilege when there is a reasonable suspicion they are acting unlawfully.
In 1977, President Nixon lost another Supreme Court case in Nixon v Administrator of General Services. The Supreme Court held that the former president could not assert privilege to keep all of his papers from his presidency private. However, in Nixon v Fitzgerald (1982), the Supreme Court defended Nixon against an analyst who claimed he had been fired illegally. The Court held that the President had absolute immunity to act within the functions of his office. 4SC
I don’t even know how to complete the above headline. After receiving my B.A. Degree with a major in Political Science in 1974, I took the Law Schools Admissions test. I do not remember what my score was from that beautiful Spring day, though it was long and wasted. I do know my score was not great but not poor. I did not pursue law school. Yesterday’s lecture at the coup hearing made me realize I made the right decision. Liberal law professors would have drove me insane. Yes they were even liberal back then. My professors in political science were also liberal. They had arrogant personalities. If you disagreed you were the one wrong, another words they were always right.
I was in college during the Nixon Watergate era. I had one class in which that is pretty much all we discussed was Nixon and Watergate, day after day. I was quiet most of the times, it was obvious there wasn’t a lot of love for Nixon in this class, especially from our professor. She hated Nixon. The class seemed to follow along with her wherever she may go. I liked Nixon, so I kept my mouth shut. I went to Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, MO. A very conservative area, except for those Political Science classes. I seemed to be the only one that did, I didn’t need to feel like i was taking part in a gang beating. I already felt it. My instructor wasn’t a law professor, but she carried the same arrogance as these law professors we saw yesterday.
Political Science is a weird field, they preach on the past but mix in present day ideas, political thought…….which is highly scattered and comes from scattered brains, who think they are just thinking out of the box.
Yesterday was interesting though, these law professors lectured us on the constitution and our founding fathers. They lectured us on what they meant when they created our Constitution, each article, each that came up anyway. So lectured us on what it meant, what the founding fathers were thinking and how the Constitution applied to today and especially that items were thought out to meet today’s issues in particular. So according to 3 of the 4 professors Donald Trump was the exact president the founding father’s addressed (had in mind) when the created our Constitution. They were protecting us from a Donald Trump (according to these 3 geniuses). What is interesting, these professors constantly criticize our constitution. If given the right, they would throw it out the window and re-write it or abolish it. Then they would just make their own laws. Liberal law professors are not the most democratic group around. They are hang out in our colleges and universities and poison our kids with extreme liberalism. Prof. Pamela S. Karlan is the poster child of a liberal law professor. No doubt about that. She is frightening. Do you really want to go to law school?
Originally posted on pundit from another planet: FISA Memo Is Scarier than Watergate. Victor Davis Hanson write: The Watergate scandal of 1972–74 was uncovered largely because of outraged Democratic politicians and a bulldog media. They both claimed that they had saved American democracy from the Nixon administration’s attempt to warp the CIA and FBI to cover up…
Mark Levin makes a strong case or argument that Obama ordered or in the least knew about wiretapping Trump Tower during the 2016 Campaign. I am not saying one way or the other, just yet, that the Donald’s claim of being spied on by Obama is true. That said is it impossible? Absolutely not! Is it beyond Obama to use government agencies to do his “possible” dirty work. NO! He is that arrogant and believes he is above the law. However, that said, it would be reckless to use gov agencies……someone sooner or later with any kind of conscience would squeal like a burning pig.
Stay tuned to this sequel as more is surely to be released. As of now, the jury is still out. Nothing should surprise you. Nixon’s Watergate started out with mere accusations as well. Look how that ended! In corrupt Washington D.C. anything is possible.
Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein comments on the FBI’s shocking Friday afternoon announcement that they are reopening the investigation into Hilary Clinton’s email server because new evidence has come to light.
It’s one thing for the right-wing press to accuse the Clinton foundation of cronyism, corruption, and scandal (especially if the facts, and internal admissions by affiliated employees, confirm as much) – it tends to be generally ignored by the broader, if left-leaning, media. But when the Watergate scandal’s Bob Woodward, associate editor at the liberal […]
