38th Anniversary of Nixon’s Resignation

Richard Nixon Resignation Speech

Richard Nixon Resignation Speech
That rumbling in the earth with an epicenter near Yorba Linda wasn’t a series of earthquakes yesterday. It was Richard M. Nixon rolling in his grave.

Today marks the 38th anniversary of Nixon’s infamous resignation; the Yorba Linda native announced to the nation that he would resign the night before making Augusy 8th and 9th the same as Chirstmas Eve and Christmas day, for Liberals.

I was fortunate enough to watch a videotape of the Nixon-Kennedy debates from the John Kennedy Library in Boston two weeks ago. While the tone was far more civil 52 years ago, the labeling and rhetoric have not changed very much. People listening to the debate on the radio thought Nixon had one. But a look at the TV footage showed a calm and reassuring JOF to a sweating, shifty-eyed sitting VP with a five o’clock shadow. At one point, Nixon was offered a rebuttal to a question and he declined to answer. Can you even fathom that today?

  1. Was Nixon Watergated?
    Chapter 13 of the book The Rockefeller File by Gary Allen.

    “The Watergate Caper, the coup d’etat that knocked President Nixon out of the White House, was carefully engineered by the two agents for the House of Rockefeller,
    Henry Kissinger, Secretary of State under President Nixon, and General Alexander Haig – White House Chief of Staff

    It is now known that Henry Kissinger was responsible for creating the Plumbers squad in the first place, while the “instant General,” Alexander Haig made sure that the most incriminating evidence on the tapes was given in advance to the men investigating his boss! Together, the two men forced a bitter and dejected Nixon to resign, thus paving the way (finally!) to get a Rockefeller into the White House without risking an election that Rocky would surely lose.” … (One of many theories)

    “The burglary at the Democratic Headquarters in the Watergate Hotel was not exactly carried out with the precision of a James Bond movie. It was more like the Three Stooges at their most slapstick. It was so clumsy, in fact, that the whole operation smells of a set-up. First: one of the burglars alerted a guard, by replacing the tape over the door locks after the guard had discovered and removed the first one. Even though their efforts had been discovered, the boss of the operation, Gordon Liddy, sent the burglars back to the Watergate. There they proceeded to flash lights, rip the place apart, and in general act as if they had all night to perform their mission. The man posted as lookout saw the police enter the building, but either failed to alert the men inside—or his warning was ignored.”
