    Nixon: Neurotic, Wife Beater, Drunk, Suicidal

    Wow. Watching the BBC documentary "The Secret World of Richard Nixon." He actually looked at ringing the white house with U.S. military troops which would obey him and ignore the chain of command. The Joint Chiefs took action to prevent this. Schlessinger bound the military to ignore orders...

    Kavanaugh: Nixon shouldn't have been forced to turn over Watergate tapes

    The definitive reason why Droomp nominated Kavanaugh to SCOTUS, and why he should NEVER be confirmed. Dems should keep demanding every word of his papers, that his history should be made public, and reasonable, honest, thinking Cons should join them in killing this nomination. This guy is as...

    Will Cynthia Nixon be the next surprise for progressives?

    NY Papers are all discussing this today, is Gov Cuomo sweating it out? In a victory that shocked not only the Democratic Party, but also the entire political spectrum, 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated veteran Congressman Joe Crowley in the New York primary. When Sex and the City...

    Cynthia Nixon doesnt get a mic at NY state convention

    Ok this really looks bad... Cynthia Nixon’s message to progressives at the state Democratic Convention on Wednesday carried only so far. That’s because the meeting room at Hofstra University assigned to the Progressive Caucus, where Nixon is popular, wasn’t equipped with a microphone...

    More Dirty Dick (Nixon)

    I just finished watching the 7th episode of Ken Burn's The Vietnam War. And it contained a shocker for me. Through both a CIA bug in the S. Vietnamese government office and FBI taps on the S. Vietnam Washington embassy, LBJ learned that agents of Nixon had asked the Saigon government to not...

    Could Nixon Have Survived Watergate?

    If he had gotten out in front of the scandal? If he had admitted that his staff knew the burglars, but that those involved got carried away? And, if so, can Trump survive the Russia scandal(s), if he admits what happened and offers an apology? (Assuming we have a sense of what the "Russia...

    Gallows humor?? NIXON library tweets, "at least Nixon didn't fire the FBI director"

    I'm surprised that someone from the "Nixon library" Tweeted this but that's attribution in the article so I'm going with it!! The Nixon Library, however, drew an important distinction. "FUN FACT: President Nixon never fired the Director of the FBI #FBIDirector #notNixonian," it tweeted...

    Nixon aide/Watergate jailbird John Ehrlichman confessed to Dan Baum that Richard Nixon started the War on Drugs because "We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then...
