We vigorously defended Clinton when he was inappropriately targeted by Ken Starr, and if you are an American, whether you love Trump or despise him, it is your duty and obligation to defend Donald Trump for the very same reasons that Bill Clinton was ultimately deemed to be "Not Guilty".
The insanity of the current political mess is deeply rooted, and I will merely cover the surface for the sake of making my case.
First and foremost, the media and the public needs to drop the delusion that Watergate was anything more than the cover up that is responsible for the current political mess.
The failure to resolve the Watergate crisis is responsible for the current, political climate because Watergate was not a third-rate burglary. It was the tumor that kept growing when JFK was assassinated in 1963.
Despite what the FBI says, Lee Harvey Oswald did not kill President Kennedy. Kennedy was murdered because he planned to end the Vietnam war (out by 1965) and fanatics like Johnson, Nixon, Hoover, Rusk and the like controlled the government and the mafia, to be able to Whitewash the truth.
These are not opinions or conspiracy theories. Great historians like Mat Wilson have exposed everything in thouroughly researched books like Preserving Their Legacy and it is a shame that we currently trash heroes and traitors alike.
To make a long story short, Watergate operatives were not third-rate burglars. They were trained assassins and historian Mat Wilson, exposed that in the following terms:
"In particular, Nixon allies like Howard Hunt, Gordon Liddy and Frank Sturgis have clearly established a track record of plotting murder in effort to destroy their political enemies, and their well established reputation is solidly documented. In fact, the relationship between Sturgis and Nixon stretches back to the Eisenhower years when they were co-patriots in the struggle to assassinate Castro. The bizarre assassination plots they engaged makes the assassination of John F. Kennedy the Sunday school picnic of their covert operations. For example, they had even tried to brainwash Castro's mistress in effort to turn her into a CIA-trained assassin. The plot to murder Castro through a poisoned cigar was equally bizarre and Sturgis enthusiastically embraced these methods for use against both foreign and domestic enemies. Consequently, what the public has been told about Watergate is uneventful, compared to the real schemes and operations that men like Sturgis, Liddy and Hunt embraced.
Sturgis had initially supported the revolution in Cuba and fought side by side with Castro, but anti-Communist hysteria turned the former object of an honorable revolution into a target of assassination.
In 1963, President Kennedy declared war on the paramilitary operations of anti-Castro extremists and they responded with disdainful comments like: "In Florida, where we were once welcome, we must now operate in the hills of Escambray. We are watched like criminals." By the fall of 1963, former soldiers-of-fortune like Sturgis, who had expected the cooperation of their government, were primed to oppose a new enemy -not Castro, the Communist abroad, but Kennedy, the so-called Communist at home."
When Richard Nixon became President, assassins who had more luck killing Kennedy than Castro, remained his henchmen and they continued to strike and blunder; Chappaquiddick was evidently a failed effort to assassinate Ted Kennedy, but who could possibly believe that as long as we call do not understand the difference between third-rate burglars and politically motivated assassins?
In retrospect, anybody who believes that the Watergate burglars merely broke into buildings, planted bugs, and photographed documents in effort to re-elect Nixon, are extremely naive. The only reason that Nixon ever became President is because two Kennedys were murdered and one was effectively traumatized for life.
Most people believed the nightmare was over when he Nixon was impeached and that is an even bigger delusion than the claim that Oswald killed Kennedy.
As Nixon biographer Sam Anson has uncovered, Nixon has had an almost uninterrupted capacity to influence White House decision making, AFTER he was impeached. Code-named the Wizard, Richard Nixon had direct access to the Ford White House through an elaborate secret communication set up. Nixon's almost unbroken link to the White House was briefly interrupted by the Carter administration. He predictably loathed Carter because he wasn't fanatically anti-Communist.
When Reagan won the election, Nixon's white House power was omnipotent because Reagan was a hands-off President who gave Nixon and CIA Director, Bill Casey the opportunity to direct American foreign policy. Historian, Sam Anson described the incredible degree of influence that Nixon exercised over the Reagan White House when he said:
"Nixon gets into his office every morning about 7:30. By noon he Will have made and taken 40 calls, most of them to Washington. First he calls the White House and talks to (presidential counsellor) Ed Meese, (national security adviser) Bud McEarlane, and President Reagan. Then he starts working the State Department. Everyone from (Secretary of State) George Schultz on down. He not only gives advice on foreign policy, but on politics in general. What he says is taken very seriously. The tone of the Reagan era was set during the election campaign, when Ronald Reagan offered Casey the opportunity to be his campaign manager. Reagan was in awe of the intelligence spook who organized intelligence missions behind enemy lines for Eisenhower during World War II and as soon as Casey joined the campaign, Reagan said: "You're the expert Bill. Just point me in the right direction and I'll go".
Richard Nixon, Casey's ideological twin, became the senior partner of the foreign policy that was shaped in the 1980's. Ronald Reagan was nothing more than a trusting subject who enthusiastically embraced the path that Nixon and Casey paved.
Absolute loyalty defined the relationship between Casey and Nixon. In 1970, when anti-war demonstrators disturbed President Nixon, Bill Casey let it be known that anyone who opposed the war was misinformed and irresponsible. With Ronald Reagan in the White House, Bill Casey and Richard Nixon claimed the right to define the course of American foreign policy and Casey's unswerving support for Nixon made it all possible."
Casey had even supported Nixon through the Watergate crisis when he wrote:
"All of your friends, all of us who view you as a national asset with a historic mission, and the general public, want to pull all the political shenanigans behind us and get on with the vital things to be done."
That is when American foreign policy was effectively privatized. Remember the book, October Surprisse, which exposes the plot to delay the release of American hostages held in Tehran until after the election, to sabotage Jimmy Carter's prospect of winning the election. The allegation was vigorously denied but a brief item in the New York Times dated July, 30 1980, expsed the absence of Reagan's campaign manager in the following terms; "William Casey plans to open negotiations with the Right to Life group when he returns from a trip abroad."
The question remains; Why wasn't Ronald Reagan impeached for the fact that his Administration had privatized American Foreighn Policy? The answer is, because Watergate was never properly investigated and exposed.
The Casey/Nixon agenda defined the Reagan years, and the so-called Reagan revolution was in fact a re-visitation of the lawless Nixon years. Accomplished in the art of plotting clandestine schemes, Nixon and Casey ushered in an unprecedented reign of terror with a vengeance. Carter had interrupted the unfinished agenda of the Nixon White House and the first order of producing the dissent-free environment they demanded was the prompt "liquidation" of priority target, John Lennon.
This is the man that Richard Nixon used to assassinate John Lennon.
On December 2, 1980, Richard Nixon betrayed the pre-planned agenda of the Reagan White House in his book, The Real War, wherein he claimed confidence in what he called "the background of those new policies that will now begin to emerge as the new administration takes office." Nixon's book paints the paranoid portrait of a nation waging an obsessive battle to win World War III, and he made himself the hero of his megalomaniac obsession.
The home front of Nixon's so-called Real War was the realm of ideals and ideas, and according to the perversity he actively promoted "we will have to compromise some of our cherished ideals" as long as the battle is waged "in the name of that supreme priority." Having extolled the virtue of waging a covert, unethical war to support friends and destroy enemies, Nixon essentially justified his absolute commitment to do whatever was necessary, including the need to murder a "peacnik" like John Lennon, because, as Nixon insisted, "in World War III there is no substitute for victory." Committed to contain communism through the methods and means that totalitarian states deploy, Richard Nixon claimed that "senseless terrorism is often not as senseless as it may seem. To the Soviets and their allies, [and to those who deploy their tactics] it is a calculated instrument of national policy."
And so, if we want to fix the present, we need to understand and learn from the past, to be able to close the loopeholes which have made democracy an elusive dream.
The rest of this "brief" is not necessarily as accurate as all of the above because it is being hastily written, but the core observations are valid:
The selective and illegal leaks of the media are supposed to prove that President Donald Trump is guilty of obstructing justice and that is a stretch that only a delusional person would make. This is the narrative that is supposed to prove that President Trump obstructed justice:
A: President Donald Trump was the target of a never-ending counterintelligence investigation that FBI Director, Jame Comey was never able to justify.
B: President Donald Trump allegedly fired Donald Trump because he wanted to shut down the investigation, even thogh it is crystal clear that in the mind of Donald Trump, thre was no collusion because he did not see it. In his mind, both he and Flynne were doing the job the people elected Trump to do and it is therefore not possible to find criminal intent in the actions of President Trump. That is a fake media delusion.
C: Leaks of confidential conversations suggest that President Donald Trump told the Russians that the heat was off because he fired James Comey. If the "heat" was what Trump perceived to be an Inquisition, why is that significant. Consequently, the bigger crime is not Trump's alleged intent, because seeking to cooperte with Russia is not a crime, but the invasion of privacy.
D: The leak of self-serving memos suggest that President Donald Trump demanded the loyalty of James Comey. Why has nobody seen that memo? If privacy is going to be invaded, it needs to be invaded in equal measure to be transparent. Consequently, the secret memo is more gossip than evidence, and the fact hat the media treats it like gospel is disgusting.
In the final analysis, President Donald Trump did not only have the authority to fire Comey, it was in fact his obligation because James Comey proved to be absolutely incompetent and even corrupt. Genuine whistleblowers do not advocate the appointment of a Special Prosecutor to create a very hostile and divisive environment.
The Russia probe is not about Trump's ties to Russia. It is about trying to dictate policy where there are essentially two competing schools of thought in that regard. One school acknowledges the danger of continuing to impose a selective, regime change mentality which is responsible for all the current chaos and the other is less idealogical and willing to be more flexible in that regard.
The phoney calculus is the false assertion that Russia meddling threatened the integrity of the American election when the fact is, internal American tampering has either influenced or altered election results since 2000. We all know what happened in 2000, far less people realize that Diebold defeated Kerry and Edwards and the only reason that the attempt to steal it for Romney failed is because Obama proved to be too popular.
But don't blame that on the Russians. Fix what is broken, don't look for scapegoats.
Like Ronald Reagan, who wasn't impeached because he was relatively clueless, we must be far more surgical about the people we target because the influence of those who are in fact responsible for the current chaos will continue to thrive unless it is appropriately rooted out.
Conclusion: It is vital and necessary to focus exclusively on assuring the integrity of the next election because the genuine, historical legacy of the United States is mired in too much political division and controversy to be able to sort it all out in one fell swoop.
