Carl Bernstein, whose investigative journalism led to Richard Nixon’s resignation, says Trump’s attacks on the press are more treacherous than Nixon’s. He also makes a good point about today’s lack of civic consensus on acceptable presidential behavior.
This is huge. Really huge. Trust me on this. I’m just old enough that I remember coming home from school and having nothing to watch on TV because the Watergate hearings were on every channel. (This was back when we had only like 6 VHF channels and a couple of UHF channels in Los Angeles.) I also vaguely remember when Richard Nixon resigned the presidency, because it was such an historical event.
The Nixon presidency was incredibly dirty and corrupt, but I have to believe what’s going on with the Trump administration right now makes Watergate look like a Sunday picnic. This has to lead to Congressional hearings and quite possibly impeachment proceedings against Lord Dampnut. Mike Pence should likely be in the crosshairs as well, because this simply can’t be only Lord Dampnut’s doing. His entire cadre of minions are suspect.
If it goes all the way to impeachment, I also can’t help but wonder if there’s any chance of a presidential election do-ever. I know this is absolutely unprecedented, but Russia manipulated things to make sure the Republicans got in power not only in the White House but also in Congress, so I don’t know if having Paul Ryan end up as president because he’s speaker of the house is the right outcome.
All I can say is, we are most definitely in uncharted territory right now. So hang on tight, because this is most definitely going to be a very bumpy ride.
Martin Luther King Jr. the Lost Speech - The Casualties of the Vietnam War
the reason that we are posting this speech is because we have a belief looking at the situation as it exists in politics today that Donald Trump is going to start a war.
if he does it will be exactly the same war that Richard Nixon fought in Vietnam. He will do it by sending all minorities and people he considers undesirables.
Just like Nixon, Trump will spill poor peoples blood. once again sending minorities off to foreign lands, to fight for those he considers too good to get their hands dirty for America’s RICH ideals.
I lived during this time and I can tell you that I know what happened.
Yes I followed it intensely as a child and a student. Richard Nixon was exactly who we see today Donald Trump.
He is Hateful. He is a separationist. He has no relationship whatsoever to the majority of people in this country.
People, who did not vote for Trump. People who he will end up disenfranchising purposely.
Do not be deceived
Do not look away
and do not pretend this is not happening because America you made this.
AMERICA you did this
Stand up and look at yourself in the mirror. Look at yourselves and be disgusted at what you truly invented this time.
Nothing but hate. Nothing but divisiveness. Nothing but pure lies.
America this is what you have done now stand up and look at what you are going to have to deal with because you did it.
