For some time I have been concerned and in the back of my mind knew that something was wrong. I wondered why the Democrats spluttered and protested about Bush and then gave him everything he wanted without even a fight. Many gave them the benefit of the doubt and swallowed the excuses, ‘we don’t have the votes’, ‘we need sixty votes to override the veto’, etc. Some even think that the democrats are part of the same party – the one party state. Or that they are in it for the money and don’t care about the voters, which might be true since nearly everyone who becomes a Representative or a Congressman or woman is a millionaire, or so I’ve been told, not having the data in front of me. Seems reasonable to me, seeing how much money is involved in running for President, it stands to reason that the same criteria applies in running for Congress or the House.
There are many incidents in the political world that bear scrutiny, like stolen elections, election fraud, ‘caging’ and so on but let me whittle it down to just one, which has been nagging at me for many months.
Lets think for a moment; what was the purpose of the burglary into the oppositions’ offices in the Watergate scandal, and why was it, when it was found out, such a scandal?
First of all, the purpose was to dig up some dirt on the opposition so as to blackmail them in using their vote, right?
People were outraged at this blatant manipulation of Members of Congress, and rightly so.
So things dragged on for a while and then, as I remember, (and I am not a student of what went on), there was the 18 minute blank tape of the Whitehouse conversations, the record keeping of which was written into law.
And that fact alone, in my humble opinion, was the last straw that brought Nixon down.
Any errors of fact or in reasoning in the above, I would gladly be corrected on.
Now, fast forward to the Bush Regime.
Some or most of the people surrounding Bush were there when Nixon went down, so they know first-hand, so to speak, just what not to do, to keep their nefarious ways out of the public eye, right?
So, 18 minutes of blank tape = 5,000 emails, no?
They circumvented the Whitehouse email system by installing a Republican Party site (illegal) and began to do Whitehouse business, in massive amounts on this illegal email system.
When this came to light, and before the Congress committee requested the emails in an investigation, the emails ‘accidentally’ became subject to the delete button.
Again I say, 18 minutes of blank tape = 5,000 emails.
Now, why was the tape blank for 18 minutes?
Because it contained, and everyone should ponder that, it would have incriminated the President and showed his knowledge and complicit involvment in the Watergate Burglary. It was accepted then and went without saying, and it is what brought him down.
