Skip to comments.Mark Felt Is A "Rat," A "Snitch," An Informer And A Traitor! What Can We Do About It?

Former FBI agent Mark Felt has been identified as "Deepthroat." The extremist left wing media is praising him for his anti-Nixonism and calling him an American hero. He is not a hero, he is a rat, a snitch, an informer.
Felt, who apparently never had a problem breaking the law for FBI purposes, utilized the position of trust he held and violated his oaths of office to utilize inside information for his own political ends and beliefs. He did this by turning over information to those who could use the information he supplied for their own political ends and beliefs.
Felt didn't get what he wanted (Hoover's job) so he peed in the pool.
Why should we belive that sticking it to Nixon was the only secret he ever told/sold to outsiders? Could Felt have given/sold secrets to the mafia, the commies, Castro, the Vietnamese, Whitey Bulger, or democrats of every stripe?
And, what of the WP role? Would they ever have protected the identity or run with a story from a high level insider who snitched on Willie, Hillie or Traitor John? Confidential sources should NEVER be allowed. They are a PROPERTY RIGHT, nothing else. The might help the media (so long as they are ratting in accord with the media's agenda) but they are bad for the country. A anonymous tip, however, can always trigger an investigation by reporters who get paid for investigating.
We just took shots at the BUsh adminisdtration for paying a columnist to write about a particular subject in a certain way. Isn't that what the WP did? The WP took information it KNEW was secret and made money with it. The WP didn't question Felt's motivation.
Felt is a traitor, not a hero. This truth would be obvious to even the left-wing extremist media had he tried to give/sell them information about something the Carter administration had Jimmah screwed him!
Finally, I, for one, do not want the secrets of this nation handled as the private material of every government official sworn to hold them or the left-wing media outlets to whom the rat chooses to leak them!
Do we have cases where an FBI case against a commie, criminal or foreigner felt appart at the last minute?
Will some one obtain the records of Felt's Presidential (Reagan) pardon from the archives of the Pardon Attorney (only Bush, Clinton, Bush pardons appear to be on their site) so we can see what Felt admits that he did and was pardoned for.
The left-wing media will NEVER be interested in the truth on this, to them, Felt is a hero. WE all know better!!!
The media's snoregasm over this story is like their incessant referrals to Iraq as a "Vietnam-like quagmire." Both are references to the heyday of the mainstream media, when they brought down a sitting President, and brought about a defeat for the US military.
......for the record......what religious denomination was Felt?
Gotta love these liberals.
I don't know, but I remember that when he was married in 1938 the chaplain of the House of Representatives performed the service.
Thank you,.....if you find out,....please,....let me know....
According to the Vanity Fair article Felt "claims no religious affiliation".
.....he was in Hoover's FBI...............
he's NOT telling the truth!
.....maybe today he makes no claim,......but back THEN,.....
.....what was his religious denomination?
.....that was Hoover's FBI.......
/deep throat is ever 'deeper?
......if you find out his 'history' (religious truth then)...please,....let me know.
What do to about this? Let it go.
Felt served this country admirably for decades in very difficult work. Whether he did the right thing or not in '72, he certainly did the right thing when he authorized break-ins against Weather Underground terrorists. He paid a price for this and was pardoned by President Reagan.
There are much, much more deserving targets.
A worthwhile thing to keep in mind.
what is your point? for what "record"?
sorry, my wires got crossed
I kind of see it another way, like the treasonous Daniel Ellsberg, Woodward and Bernstein had the courage of their convictions. Felt has hidden out until he (or his daughter, more likely) judged that the public would not assail him and the prosecutors would not be after him.
Karl Marx's former home; now a museum. Trier, GermanyKarl Marx was born into a progressive Jewish family in Prussian Trier (now in Germany). His father Herschel, descending from a long line of rabbis, was a lawyer and his brother Samuel waslike many of his ancestorschief rabbi of Trier. In 1817 Heinrich Marx converted to the Prussian state religion of Lutheranism to keep his position as a lawyer, which he had gained under the Napoleonic regime. The Marx family was very liberal and the Marx household hosted many visiting intellectuals and artists during Karl's early life.
For starters, he leaked VP Agnew's troubles!
