AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!



I frankly resent this cartoon, and so I've given it the Golden Bedpan Award. It foolishly portrays Her Heinous as either an amalgam with –– or reincarnation of –– President Richard M. Nixon. Neither one of the First Grifters has ever been fit to do so much as clean Mr. Nixon's boots at any stage of their odious careers. 

The broad acceptance by those too young to have seen it for themselves of the enemedia's determination to portray Mr. Nixon as a crook and an arch-fiend disgusts and depresses me. Hillary Clinton is not and never has been good enough to do so much as empty Richard Nixon's bedpan.

President Nixon was a brilliant, deeply serious, very fine, but largely unsophisticated man who always had the best interests of our country at heart. That he used any and every means at hand –– legal and extra-legal –– to preserve, protect and defend this nation from intellectual as well as physical aggression works much to his credit. 

He was a passionate, highly effective anti-Communist which, of course, put him at odds with the enemedia, most of academia, and the entertainment industry all of which were heavily dominated by atheistic leftist Jews bent on the destruction of our Christian culture, and the core principles in our founding documents. 

Because anti-Communism was virtually synonymous with "anti-Semitism" at the time, Mr. Nixon became the target –– and ultimately the tragic victim –– of a particularly vicious "witch hunt" on the part of the Leftist Establishment. The Left could not STAND President Nixon's stunning landslide victory that ushered in his second term in office. It threatened their ascendancy, so they mounted an Opposition Research Campaign of unprecedented strength and mammoth proportion. 

Mr. Nixon has often been described as "paranoid," because he KNEW what terrible forces he was up against. Unfortunately for our country the tactics his men used to try to protect Mr. Nixon were successfully used by the vicious, unprincipled leftist termites to destroy his presidency. 

Mr. Nixon's only "crime" was loyalty. He made an admittedly clumsy attempt to protect the men who had tried to protect him, and that's where the leftists got him. When it came to malfeasance, Mr. Nixon was maladroit. Alas! he proved no match for the unprincipled fiends who opposed him. He was neither vicious nor crooked enough to outfox them.

Nothing has ever been right in American politics since President Nixon was forced to resign his office Ronald Reagan's successful presidency notwithstanding.

    Old enough to remember clearly Mr. Nixon's demise. Remember the tapes. Missing segments. Watergate break in. Most of all the attempted cover up.

    Mr. Nixon's defining mistake was not coming clean initially, telling the truth, and firing the crooks who believed they were protecting him.

    Perhaps they were?

    Politics and government... a dirty business at best.

    1. I could not help but notice at another blog that my name was omitted from a list of Those Who Care about honesty and integrity in politics when the subject of Richard Nixon arose.

      I responded:

      "If you think for one bleeding instant that I DON'T care, you're sadly mistaken. Where we differ, I suspect, concerns an apparent belief that slavishly following The Rules automatically makes one worthy, while bending or breaking them on occasion to serve what-one-believes-is-a-noble-purpose automatically makes one a miscreant worthy only of condemnation.

      "Sorry, but the attempt to apply the purse-lipped standards set by that sort of Good Boy Morality across the board in a world such as this strikes me as simplistic and dangerously naive.

      "One cannot fight scorpions and poisonous serpents effectively with moral and intellectual integrity alone."

  2. Nixon was not targeted for antisemitism. That's just silly. It ignores piles of relevant history, and a handful of angry lefties had nothing to do with any of this. Nixon burned his bridges with his own party when he reacted to inflation the way he did. They furious. Looking back, looking at contemporary state of precedent, it was a reasonable way to manage the situation, but you'd swear the GOP is never happy until the economy is in ruins for everyone but them. It's like they really just hate and want nothing but bad for everyone but each other.

    You could say Nixon's Watergate crime was that of loyalty, and there is a point there, but remember, he may have gotten around the cover-up, but if further investigation connected him to the illegal activities of the CRP, he'd have wound up doing time. Bush could have pardoned Libby, if you recall, but when someone does something that bad, you can't politically get away with pardoning. It costs too much political capital, and in Bush's case the cost of his relationship with the intelligence community. By Nixon being guilty only of "loyalty" Ford was able to pardon him, and even then it came at a huge political cost.

    1. Hey, Jersey,

      I said anti-Communism and anti-Semitism were virtually synonymous. I did not say that was ever spelled out n the popular press. It was in fact fairly well hidden, but hat did not mean it was not there lurking and bubbling just below the surface.

      Despite the tired, ever tiresome, utterly ridiculous claims from paranoid leftist Jews that members of their tribe have NEVER dominated Hollywood, entertainment in general, the enemedia, the publishing industry, the advertising industry, and academia, etc. the truth belies such denials.

      Since crypto-Marxism has caught on like wildfire thanks to the highly skilled, devilishly successful promotional efforts of these afore-mentioned elements, the left is no longer populated largely by Jewish agitators, but it certainly was during Mr. Nixon's formative years, so naturally these exceedingly powerful influences found Dick Nixon not only "offensive," but extremely threatening as well.

      But you're correct. Mr. Nixon was never specifically targeted for "anti-Semitism." The left was much too clever for that.

    2. I don't think anti-communism and antisemitism were thought of as synonymous by most then any more than now. No one of any significance thinks that way. I don't even know what Jewish agitators you're talking about, or what the hell you even mean by crypto-Marxism. Morons like G Gordon Liddy screwed up and a Presidency fell. If Obama was caught being "loyal" to crazy dingbats like that, he'd have to resign too, and the GOP would probably make sure he went to prison.

      Now, that said, many Jewish people did not like or trust Kissinger. It's kind of an odd matter, in that these same folks did not seem to take it out on Nixon, but they really did not like Kissinger. In the end, though, most Jewish people, especially Israelis, would tell you they were damn glad to have had their help when they needed it.

  3. Nixon was not targeted for antisemitism. That's just silly.

    Huh? Where does FT state that he was?

    There's only that silly, ubiquitous bit about da Joooos in Hollywood:

    "[...] most of academia, and the entertainment industry all of which were heavily dominated by atheistic leftist Jews bent on the destruction of our Christian culture, and the core principles in our founding documents."

    Other than that, this is one of the flattest hagiographies of Tricky Dicky I've read in a while.

  4. Truman: ""The Jews, I find, are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[ersons] as long as the Jews get special treatment. Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under dog. Put an underdog on top and it makes no difference whether his name is Russian, Jewish, Negro, Management, Labor, Mormon, Baptist he goes haywire. I've found very, very few who remember their past condition when prosperity comes."

  5. Trumping those remarks by former Presidents are remarks by Jews themselves expressing a visceral hatred of the lowest of the low in the eyes of some Jews Christians ... aka, the goyim.

    1. Yes, Waylon, there has been plenty of ill will on both sides of this divide for at least two thousand years –– and for good reasons.

      It will never end, however, unless we can stop giving tit for tat –– a sensible solution that, unfortunately, runs contrary to human nature.

  6. Thanks for your helpful contributions that tend to prove my point, Waylon, but I do wish you'd provide your sources.

    P-C has made it all-but-impossible to discuss sensitive issues and unpleasant, unpalatable truths with any degree of rationality. This, of course gives the Enemies of Truth a tremendous advantage. Therefore, we need to arm ourselves with as much factual data as we can muster.

    1. FT, I didn't intend to make it a challenge to access the quotes above. I provided direct links to two of them while the Truman citation itself is easy enough to find on line.

      Isn't it interesting that perceiving the world from the rarefied air of the President of the United States of America that all three Presidents are able to discern that there's an almost unspeakable problem that incurs the wrath and bile of Jews, even when many of the tribe have risen to levels of power in all three Presidential administrations?

      And as usual the anti-Semitism card is always played. The game is old and the ugly disguise is wearing thin, I believe.

    2. "We" are no match or "them" when it comes to matters of psychological warfare. Defusing hostility without acquiescence is a fine art, and one "we" need to practice till "we" acquire great expertise. The frontal attack is no longer a viable option in a War of Wits involving opposing ideologies.

    "The answer to many of the domestic problems we face is not higher taxes and more spending. It is less waste, more results and greater freedom for the individual American to earn a rightful place in his own community - and for States and localities to address their own needs in their own ways, in the light of their own priorities."

  11. You're a good man, FreeThinke. When I grabbed that cartoon for my post, I knew we'd get an earful from you.

    Nixon was a good president and a patriotic American. He was also a WW II Navy veteran from a humble background.

    Of course it is unfair that his reputation and persona have been so twisted by pop culture, but he's a meme now, and probably will be for the ages.

    The fact that even the pettiest of petty criminal politicians today are way more corrupt than Nixon, who did not do it for personal financial gain, means nothing.

    As Dr. Phil would say, "It is what it is."

    1. I'm greatly relieved to learn that you understand that, SilverFiddle. It may not change anything, but it always helps to know that one is not alone in one's understanding of what's what.

      Ever since Watergate, I've been painfully aware that we have been in the clutches of a fiendish, manipulative, thuggish, agenda-driven media that in truth has more power than all three legitimate branches of government put together.

      Immoral, unprincipled abuse of the First Amendment will be our undoing.

      Odd that the First Amendment has been our greatest source of strength AND our Achilles Heel all at the same time, isn't it?

      "Democracy" like "Capitalism" only works properly when it is administered by men of good conscience governed by sound moral principles.

      The rise of the Fourth Estate –– or those who own and operate it rather –– as the primary shaper of public opinion and of policy both foreign and domestic has created a de facto rule by a largely unknown, unelected, unaccountable oligarchy of power-mad creatures many of whom are not even American citizens.

  16. The point is, that when Right Wingers employ extra-legal means for implementing their agenda, the Left cries "Foul" to high heaven. When the Left does the same thing (say Clinton-Lewinski or deem & pass Obamacare), they applaud with vigor. The same is true for the Right (ie- Ollie North's support for the Contras). Only the Left has a BIGGER megaphone in the MSM.

    The point is, that the 'party' is the home for all of the extra-legality in politics. And in the case of both R & D, the power behind this extra-legality is not the American people, but International Big Business.

    The Trade Deal (TPP) is going to pass the Congress. The Democrats are merely squeezing a few more dollars out to pay of their constituents who aren't Big Business and thereby strengthen their own popular support.
