TIDBIT: NIXON TESTIMONY RELEASED

Here's an interesting tidbit. A federal judge has ordered the late President Richard Nixon's secret Watergate grand jury testimony released.

Nixon\'s secret Watergate testimony ordered released

This is interesting because it will add new light, and perhaps vindication, to some Watergate speculations advanced by the columnist Renata Adler, epitomized in the film by Robert Altman, Secret Honor....or it could yield corroboration of other speculations. Time will tell...

  1. Likely, Nixon was set up for some unrevealed reason to be taken out of office. The whole scenario of Deep Throat and the Woodward and Bernstein “scoop” – it was all very nicely done to keep the real reasons from being revealed. We see this type of thing a lot without knowing it, I am sure. For example, the manner in which Madoff was busted and then prosecuted was all done in such a way as to not reveal who he had infuriated or the extent to which officialdom must have cooperated and looked away in order for him to operate as long as he did. Wonder what Alan Weiner really did in order to necessitate all the top dogs calling for his resignation? In lot of cases, it is just someone who declines to vote as mandated that brings on charges of sexual indiscretion or tax fault.

  2. DUMBED DOWN! You are saying the public >has been< dumbed down? Let us go for WERE COMPLETELY dumbed down during the period of Nixion. We are showing left over signs of that DUMBING now but the computer and other electronic media that offers OPTIONS and CONCEPTS never before considered, are beginning to make inroads into SLEEPING America. The trauma of the past 50 years has been a mega influence–assasination-impeachment-mentally ill leaders-meglomania leaders-money that is not real-issues we have no business putting on our make and do list-chattering silly people throwing verbal fecal material up like a future rain on our parade. Nixon was elected for some reason I have not yet been able to understand. I am a california girl…to know him was to not like him very much. Nixons lies and manipulations set the stage – He was terrified…Unstable…But we did not quite get the mentally ill thing then…we are beginning to now…Logic is the only way out—the problem is, one mans logic is a badly educated mans bane.

  3. To little too late, he probably lied to the grand jury too. To much has been concealed under the guise of “Natonal Security”, Remember the Tonkin Gulf? The Republic died with Kennedy we’re just witnessing the fall of the American Empire. You are right in Nazi International and your other books. The city/state is dead – welcome to global corporate fascism. Even if we have full disclosure now on Watergate, JFK assignation, 911 etc. it’s all to late the educated electorate Jefferson wanted had been dumbed down and to numb to do anything about it.

  4. Somehow I just DON’T think that there is going to be anything about “the whole Bay of Pigs thing” mentioned in any of the testimony that is, allegedly, going to be released.

  5. “Secret Honor” was a stage play before it was a movie and Altman changed nothing for the film–even the same star. The commentaries on the DVD of the film are worth watching, both of them. Then there’s the Chequers TV appearance where Nixon admits outright to taking the monies.

    1. Checkers was such a cute dog. Nixon said he took the money, but then he followed-up with: “And now to answer those questions let me say this:

      Not one cent of the $18,000 or any other money of that type ever went to me for my personal use. Every penny of it was used to pay for political expenses that I did not think should be charged to the taxpayers of the United States.”

      1. Right and then Nixon didn’t list those expenses, so yes he took the money; there’s no basis for us to judge if those monies were legit “political” expenses. No sure he slipped the word “political” in there either. But I don’t own the DVD though I guess there’s the web too.

        1. Sorry for the late hit, but at that time it was legal for politicians to have expense accounts paid for by campaign contributors (indeed, the Democratic Pres. candidate that year, IL Gov Adlai Stevenson had one himself).
