“I leave you gentleman now. You will now write it; you will interpret it; that’s your right. But as I leave you I want you to know…. just think how much you’re going to be missing. You don’t have Nixon to kick around anymore, because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference, and I hope that what I have said today will at least make television, radio, the press recognize that they have a right and a responsibility, if they’re against a candidate give him the shaft, but also recognize if they give him the shaft, put one lonely reporter on the campaign who’ll report what the candidate says now and then. Thank you, gentlemen, and good day.”
— Richard Nixon, press conference upon losing the 1962 California gubernatorial nomination.
Today is the fortieth anniversary of the resignation of President Richard Milhous Nixon. The mainstream media still loves to “kick around” the corpse of Nixon decades after the Watergate coup d’état engineered by the top echelon of the National Security State.
Read “It’s the 40th Anniversary of the Watergate Conspiracy” for the back story to the coup and the role of John Dean in this chain of events.
Roger Stone has revealed how Nixon got his full and complete pardon from Gerald Ford because he threatened to reveal how Ford had manipulated evidence and participated in the Warren Commission cover-up of JFK’s murder and coup d’état by Lyndon Johnson and the top echelon of the National Security State.
Nixon knew LBJ had Kennedy killed. This is why he was obsessed with getting all CIA background data to the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba and other related archival materials as “insurance” for his own criminal behavior while in office. He felt that if he was going down, so would everyone involved in the coup and cover-up.
Read Roger Stone’s The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ, and Nixon’s Secrets: The Rise, Fall and Untold Truth about the President, Watergate, and the Pardon; Phil Stanford, White House Call Girl: The Real Watergate Story; and James W. Douglass, JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters, for the factual details behind these events.
