COUNTDOWN: As of today, we regret to say that a total of 1,326 days still remain in this wretched administration’s term in office…
Happy first Monday of June, everybody! There have been, in recent days, an increasing number of comparisons drawn between disgraced former Republican President Richard Nixon, who was forced to resign due to his cover-up of the Watergate scandal, plus the massive number of lies he told in that cover-up, and the fact that he infuriated so many of the officels of that era, with our current Liar-in-chief Republican President Donald Chump, who is doing all he can to delay and stall (cover-up) a current FBI and congressional investigation of apparent collusion by his campaign team with the Russian government, along with the record number of lies he and his administration are telling every day, as well as the constant infuriation he is causing the entire political community. As our gifted podcaster extraordinaire Burr Deming relates in his latest offering today, there is also one other key comparison by men who tried to shield the public from the realization that their President was indeed a traitorous crook.
In today’s insightful podcast, Burr tells us similarities between President Johnson in 1968 with today’s former FBI Director, James Comey. Burr says, “President Johnson had meeting dates and places. He knew who was responsible. He had proof. Candidate Nixon had sent messengers to the South Vietnamese government. If the South Vietnamese stopped negotiating, if they blocked a peace agreement, Nixon would become President and he would guarantee much better terms…
I thought of President Johnson as details came to light about James Comey and the Russian campaign to take over the government of the United States…
Almost half a century before, Lyndon Johnson explained on tape that he would not reveal the treachery of candidate Richard Nixon. The nominee of a major political party was actively engaged in treason. President Johnson did not want to endanger public confidence in America’s system of government.
In both cases public servants wanted to protect an institution. Both were dishonest for honest reasons. Both decided the American public could not handle the truth.
President Johnson protected the American system of government. We got Nixon, years of death in Vietnam, and Watergate. Public confidence was shaken after all.
Director Comey protected the Federal Bureau of Investigation. We got, well, we got Donald Trump…
The unknown, little reported, scandal within the scandal we call Watergate helped cause years of national pain.
Nearly five decades later, James Comey repeated that scandal. Both acts of deception came from the same crisis of faith. ..”
