    There are new business relationships in this ever-changing world not too many years ago I saw a video that depicted the conquest of the United States using the chips embedded in airplanes, cars and phones. Chip legislation just passed the other week in Washington. Places like South Korea and Taiwan not to mention domestic US production seen providing chip replacements for China in the future... Richard Nixon had high hopes when he opened up China some 50 years ago "We can't run the world without China" were words Nixon used as he went into the White House... So why get...
  • Exploding the Watergate Myth A new book shows that Woodward and Bernstein lied. And lied. And lied.

    And then there was the book All the President’s Men by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the two Washington Post reporters who’d supposedly brought Nixon down. When it came out in 1974, I read it avidly. And two years later I was enthralled by the movie version, written by William Goldman and directed by Alan J. Pakula. But there was one thing - in the book and the movie - that always puzzled me. I’ll describe it as it’s presented in the film. Woodward (Robert Redford) meets late at night in a parking garage with his secret source, known as...
  • Mother Earth Above The Altar In A Cathedral - What Would Teddy Roosevelt Or Richard Nixon Say?

    I push boundaries. And try to bring together people who are different. I think conservatives should be proud of having some of the best ground breaking conservationists in modern history among their numbers (Teddy Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, Margaret Thatcher and Arnold Schwarzenegger) St Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne is currently doing the same by hanging an image called Gaia above the space occupied by the altar and the seats of the choir. Is this legitimate free expression by the cathedral? Or should this environmentalism have been stopped at the door? What would Jesus say?
  • 'A Fundamental Dignity to the Man': Morning Joe's Sudden Respect For Richard Nixon

    People too young to remember the Nixon era, or who haven't studied it, might assume that the left's seething hostility to Donald Trump is unprecedented. In fact, back in his day, the left's loathing of President Richard Nixon was overwhelming. When he was ultimately driven to resign over Watergate, there was great glee and rejoicing in liberal land. But, file this one under NewsBusters' "Sudden Respect," rubric. Friday's Morning Joe, playing off a Peggy Noonan column, actually celebrated Richard Nixon! It did so because, in contrast with Donald Trump regarding the 2020 election, Nixon conceded the 1960 presidential election to...

    American Thinker ^ | December 31, 2021 | By John Dale Dunn
    In 2019, I wrote here and here at American Thinker of the work of Geoff Shepard — certainly the reigning expert on the Watergate Affair because of his long history of scholarship and archive- and document-diving. At the time, I interviewed Mr. Shepard. I asked him to assess what he knew about Watergate and to compare the Watergate affair to what was happening in D.C. with the Trump coup attempt. I also solicited his opinions on what is being called the Deep State and its role in the Russia/Trump collusion plot. By that time, both Mr. Shepard and I were...
  • Wake Up America: Communist China is our Enemy

    12/13/2021 4:55:49 AM PST · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | December 13, 2021 | Jeff Crouere
    In 1972, President Richard Nixon visited mainland China, opening the door for diplomatic relations between the two countries. It was a dramatic visit, as Nixon became the first United States President to visit the communist nation. Nixon met with Chinese dictator Mao Zedong, who is considered the world’s greatest mass murderer. During the “Great Leap Forward,” between 1958 and 1962, over 45 million Chinese were killed of starvation, torture and other barbaric methods. After Nixon opened the door to better relations, President Jimmy Carter formalized diplomatic relations in 1979 and adopted the “One China” policy, ending normalized ties with the...

    This term the Supreme Court will hear four consolidated cases challenging the Environmental Protection Agency’s power to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. That question will impact all electricity consumers, but the cases may have larger implications for the ever-expanding reach of the administrative state. The lead case—West Virginia v. EPA—questions the constitutionality of an ancillary provision of the Clean Air Act that, according to a divided panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, gives the EPA broad power to regulate almost any part of the economy that produces greenhouse gases. Joining West Virginia are...

Hours later, Drew took down the offensive post, adding, "Apols for a lapse. Tweet...
  • The Worst Part? The Democrats Can't Use the 25th Amendment

    There is some speculation floating around social media (mostly, but not totally, from the right) that Democrats may try to pull the 25th Amendment card on Biden to push him aside and bring Kamala Harris forward in an effort to save face in this moment of geopolitical crisis. It is some of the same speculation you saw several times when the Left called for members of the Trump administration to turn on Trump and invoke the amendment. However, the Democrats have put themselves into such a terrible position that they absolutely cannot get rid of Biden through this means, or...
  • 'F*** that. Nixon and Kissinger got away with it in Vietnam': What Biden told Obama's special representative for Afghanistan he thought of America's obligations to the Afghan people

    The rapid US withdrawal from Afghanistan that has left the gate open for the Taliban to surge to power may come as a surprise to some, but President Biden has been in favour of pulling out for years. In 2010, Biden reportedly told Richard Holbrooke, then Obama's special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, that the US had to leave Afghanistan regardless of the cost for the Afghan people. According to Holbrooke, when Biden was asked about America's obligation to maintain their presence in Afghanistan to protect vulnerable civilians, he scornfully replied by referencing the US exit from southeast Asia in...

    Part One: The Banking Houses of Morgan and Rockefeller [VIDEO] The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths. But their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch. According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.[1] So who then are the...

    The NY Sun ^ | 11 June 2021 | Lawrence Kudlow
    Nixon was worried about trade deficits and a deteriorating balance of payments. He rejected the advice of Volcker, then treasury undersecretary, and the Fed chairman at the time, Arthur Burns. Instead, Nixon closed the gold window, meaning foreign governments could no longer exchange dollars for gold. The value of the greenback fell like a stone. So as the value of our currency declined, prices denominated in dollars sky-rocketed. We printed bad money and too much of it, and that’s the definition of inflation. Excess money in relation to demand will do it every time. Lack of value will do it...

    China vs the almighty dollarBy Henry C K Liu The Italian Marxist thinker Antonio Gramsci, while under Fascist imprisonment, developed the concept of cultural hegemony: control people's minds, and their hearts and hands will follow. Gramsci explained how one dominant class can establish its control over others through ideological dominance. Whereas orthodox Marxism explains social structure as shaped by economic forces, Gramsci adds the crucial cultural dimension. He showed how, once ideological authority (or "cultural hegemony") is established, the use of overt violence to impose control can become superfluous. Today, the world lives under the virtually undisputed rule of a...
  • 50 Years After Nixon Ended the Gold Standard, Dollar’s Dominance Faces Threat (today is the anniversary)

    Barron's ^ | August 14, 2021 | Randall W. Forsyth
    Fifty years ago this Sunday, President Richard Nixon announced a bold economic plan, including the severing of the U.S. dollar’s ties to gold. Since then, the world’s monetary system has consisted of (mostly) freely floating currencies. The dollar nonetheless remains the primary legal tender used internationally for trade, finance, and as a store of value, which has conferred upon the U.S. enormous advantages. Whether that will continue for the next half-century is far from certain. The Bretton Woods system, in effect back then, reflected America’s economic pre-eminence after World War II. Currency exchange rates were fixed, relative to the dollar,...

    Republican Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah) and Josh Hawley (Mo.) — who certainly did not find common ground on another recent issue — Marco Rubio and others are seeking ways to address family poverty and its impact on family stability. Many Hill Democrats and the Biden administration have the same aim. The drive to reduce or eliminate child poverty is not limited to the Congress and the White House. Mayors for a Guaranteed Income has formed, with mayors across the country from Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles, to Levar Stoney of Richmond, Va., finding funding for experiments in their jurisdictions with...

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    On today's Morning Joe, George Conway of the Lincoln Project compared President Trump's impending departure from office unfavorably to that of Richard Nixon's, who resigned in 1974 when facing virtually certain impeachment and removal from office. Conway claimed that, unlike President Trump, Nixon actually loved the country, and felt contrition and regret. Conway predicted that, whereas there was some "sadness and sorrow" for Nixon, a "broken man," in 1974, there will be none for President Trump, whom he twice called a "psychopath." To the contrary, Conway said that Trump is "going to be a pariah for the rest of his...

    The aftermath of the 2020 election finds the nation unsettled, with legitimate concerns about election fraud overshadowed by the capitol riot and kooky conspiracy theories.The presidential election was close. Only 84 Electoral College votes separated the contenders. Widespread allegations of ballot fraud were claimed by national party chairmen in 11 states, with court challenges lasting into the middle of the year following the election. Changing the results in just two states would flip the election.The fraud allegations were serious, including dead people voting and votes far in excess of registered voters in some counties. Yet partisan election boards quickly certified...

    Among the multitudes that America used to contain were Whittaker Chambers and Arthur Schlesinger Jr. A few months ago I happened to reread both Chambers’ autobiography Witness and Schlesinger’s Journals 1952-2000 one after the other. These two men are of different generations: Chambers lived from 1901 to 1961 and Schlesinger 1917 to 2007. They are of completely different temperaments, milieus, politics, and tastes. But there are some fascinating overlaps that have some bearing on the difficult passage we are traversing today as a nation.
