Hillary Clinton Is NO Richard Nixon!
Forty two years ago tomorrow, Richard Nixon resigned as President of the United States, due to the “scandal” known as the Watergate break-in. Given the passage of time, it may be fair to state that more voting Americans today don’t know anything about Watergate, than do.
So what was it that then President Nixon allegedly did that was so bad as to warrant his resignation? In short, not much. The break-in at the Watergate Hotel was a “Keystone Cops caper,” contrived by a small group of Nixon campaign staffers who made up “CREP”, or the “Committee to Re-Elect the President. The objective was to steal campaign secrets of the Democrats, who had been on track to nominate an avowed racist/segregationist from Alabama, George Wallace, who was quoted in a U.S. News and World Report as saying: “An Alabama segregationist is one who conscientiously believes that it is in the best interest of Negro and white to have a separate education and social order.” After Wallace was shot and paralyzed on May 15, 1972, his Presidential campaign was over and another Southerner, George McGovern, became the party nominee.
A far-Left “Progressive” with a skewed perspective on reality, McGovern tried blaming a war that Presidents Kennedy and Johnson involved America in, on Nixon, the President whose Administration would ultimately broker peace in Vietnam, ending both the war and the draft in 1973. While the Vietnam War was certainly not popular, since no American ever wants war, incumbent President Nixon was quite popular. The U.S. economy was booming, and Nixon’s style of Keynesian economics, trimmed seventeen BILLION dollars from our National deficit in just three years.
Let’s stop here for a moment, consider the FACT that our present Federal budget deficit has, at times, roamed around the ONE TRILLION dollar mark under the two-term FAILED Presidency of Barack Obama, and candidly ask ourselves if we REALLY want four more years of this under Hillary Clinton?
All of the good done by President Nixon, and there was a LOT of it, including the Philadelphia Plan, the first Affirmative Action plan, implemented by a President who the Left called “racist.” Sounds familiar, RIGHT?? According to the Left-leaning New York Times, this “closet-racist” Nixon “probably did more for desegregation than all previous administrations combined, and he did it without sending the country spiraling into civil war.”
Then there was Title IX, which prohibited Federally-funded education programs to discriminate due to gender. Bet you didn’t know that President Nixon advocated for gender equality, much like the current Republican Presidential candidate who the Left and some of its nutsy followers insist upon calling a “misogynist.” Sounds familiar, RIGHT?
Speaking of Left-leaning media, if it wasn’t for two upstart reporters looking to make a name for themselves, Watergate would have been the flash-in-a-pan it should have been. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein decided to make a name for themselves, by making a mountain out of a molehill. They took it upon themselves to bring about the downfall of a popular, successful President, and did more damage to this nation than they’ll ever know. The forced resignation of a successful President by the liberal “free press” weakened the image of the U.S.A. in the eyes of the world. Then Russian leader Leonid Brezhnev opined that only America could put its leader on a pedestal one moment, and then tear him down the next. At least the Russians tended to wait decades before tearing their leaders down!
Woodward and Bernstein tried to show that Nixon ordered the Watergate break-in, but all they could come up with was eighteen and one half minutes. Yes folks, you read that right – less than twenty minutes. Tapes containing over 3,000 hours of conversation were confiscated during the Watergate investigation, and of these THREE thousand hours, a gap of 18½ minutes of conversation was found, a gap that was claimed to contain “evidence” of Nixon’s knowledge of a break in that resulted in absolutely nothing. This was the “evidence” that forced President Nixon from office.
Former Secretary of State turned Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s office has acknowledged that while more than 30,000 of Clinton’s “work-related” emails were turned over to the State Department, nearly 32,000 were deemed “private” and deleted. Of course team Clinton claims to have read every single email in order to decide which ones were “private” and should be deleted, but very few people actually believe this.
Thirty-two thousand deleted emails and no indictment, versus eighteen and a half minutes of deleted tape and a forced resignation in the face of impeachment. G. Gordon Liddy, a man sentenced to serve 20 years in Federal prison for his role in the botched Watergate break-in, recently succinctly summarized the hypocrisy between the alleged transgressions of President Nixon and those of a truly corrupt woman now seeking the highest office in the land. Liddy’s words merit the strongest degree of consideration by you the reader, for their blunt candor:
“Bear in mind that nobody even caught a cold at the Watergate office building, but four devoted American citizens, including an ambassador, were left to die in Benghazi. It’s obvious that Hillary Clinton cherry-picked information to go public then destroyed and/or concealed the rest. And she’s getting away with it! It’s incredible to me that they let those people die, but you know, it’s like in World War II, on June 6th 1944, when we invaded Europe, nobody wanted to wake up Adolph Hitler and tell him what was happening. It’s sort of akin to that. Nobody wanted to wake up anybody who can do anything. So they just hoped that they could skate through it. Well, people died because of that attitude, and Hillary has been getting away with it because the American press has been protecting her by sort of omission, if you know what I mean.”
Actually Mr. Liddy, I know exactly what you mean, and know that compared to the transgressions of “Slick Willie” Clinton during his Presidency and those of his wife Hillary during her tenure as Secretary of State, Richard Nixon was a choir boy. Hillary Clinton has no business running for President, and while Nixon was famously quoted for saying “I am not a crook,” that is a claim that Hillary Clinton can never make, because she is a crook. Crooked to the core. Hillary Clinton broke Federal laws and put our National security at risk, and her candidacy puts our nation at even greater risk.
The American people are once again faced with a choice, just like they had when they made the wrong one, not once but twice in the form of the election of the worst President in the history of this nation, Barack Obama. Our national deficit is through the roof and our economy in the toilet. Race relations are the worst they’ve ever been in our lifetime and our Country at its most vulnerable from the perspective of Homeland Security. In November, the American people can choose to either continue on like this for four years, during which time they will learn and live the dire consequences of the National security breaches by Hillary Clinton, or they can choose to start to reverse the damage done by Obama.
Should the majority choose the former, by the time that they realize they made the wrong choice, it will be too late. Too late for regret and too late to do anything about it. That time is now, between now and November. Time enough to wake up and realize the truth, not the crap being peddled by the Liberal media. If you choose to believe and worse, parrot the verbal sputum from unhinged nut jobs like Carl Bernstein, who falsely describes Donald Trump as being a “hateful neo-fascist, despot, racist, nativist, bigot” when in actuality, he is none of the above, you too can be among the mindless morons who disregard Trump supporters like Ben Carson, Allen West and Herman Cain, and disregard repeated warnings by current Homeland Security experts, about the danger of Muslim refugee groups looking to come into this nation.
Then you too will be to blame when the worst imaginable becomes our reality.
