Re: The "news" that former FBI agent Mark Felt broke the law, broke his code of ethics, broke his oath and was the main source for Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward's articles that helped depose Richard Nixon, a few thoughts.
Can anyone even remember now what Nixon did that was so terrible? He ended the war in Vietnam, brought home the POW's, ended the war in the Mideast, opened relations with China, started the first nuclear weapons reduction treaty, saved Eretz Israel's life, started the Environmental Protection Administration. Does anyone remember what he did that was bad?
Oh, now I remember. He lied. He was a politician who lied. How remarkable. He lied to protect his subordinates who were covering up a ridiculous burglary that no one to this date has any clue about its purpose. He lied so he could stay in office and keep his agenda of peace going. That was his crime. He was a peacemaker and he wanted to make a world where there was a generation of peace. And he succeeded.
That is his legacy. He was a peacemaker. He was a lying, conniving, covering up peacemaker. He was not a lying, conniving drug addict like JFK, a lying, conniving war starter like LBJ, a lying conniving seducer like Clinton -- a lying conniving peacemaker. That is Nixon's kharma.
When his enemies brought him down, and they had been laying for him since he proved that Alger Hiss was a traitor, since Alger Hiss was their fair-haired boy, this is what they bought for themselves in the Kharma Supermarket that is life:
1.) The defeat of the South Vietnamese government with decades of death and hardship for the people of Vietnam.
2.) The assumption of power in Cambodia by the bloodiest government of all time, the Khmer Rouge, who killed a third of their own people, often by making children beat their own parents to death. No one doubts RN would never have let this happen.
So, this is the great boast of the enemies of Richard Nixon, including Mark Felt: they made the conditions necessary for the Cambodian genocide. If there is such a thing as kharma, if there is such a thing as justice in this life of the next, Mark Felt has bought himself the worst future of any man on this earth. And Bob Woodward is right behind him, with Ben Bradlee bringing up the rear. Out of their smug arrogance and contempt, they hatched the worst nightmare imaginable: genocide. I hope they are happy now -- because their future looks pretty bleak to me.
Ben Stein is a writer, actor, economist, and lawyer in Beverly Hills and Malibu, and author of "Ben Stein's Diary" each month in The American Spectator.
The most terrible thing that he did is be a Republican. This to our great MSM is worse than being a murderer.
Nixon was a republican, nothing more need be said.
Sorry, Ben Stein, but this is a stretch. Nixon wanted POWER!!
He wasn't framed. He deserved a forced resignation and infamy. And would Nixon have prevented the killing fields? I tend to doubt it.
I love Ben Stein.
Uhhhhhhhhhhh...so the [expletive deleted] what?
Great find; thanks for posting this!
He didn't! Subordinates did.
Nixon was not a ..."lying conniving seducer like Clinton...".
I think the correct phrase here is not "seducer" but "serial rapist". Clinton is a common criminal, not a good 'ol boy politician, who was indicted (by impeachment) but not convicted by the good 'ol boy network of cronies and thieves who comprise the US Senate. So, too, his "wife" is a criminal, who has yet to be indicted, but that would be too much to expect given her tentacles into too many folks.
Then your historical ignorance is the equal of your snarky arrogance.
Nixon tried to cover up a break-in to spy on Dems. The Clintons were caught red-handed with FBI files of Republican at the White House.
The left glorifies one and condemns the other - hypocrites.
OMG! Really? They should have hung him.
Of course, if "wanting power" is a crime, then every elected and non-elected official in Washington, as well as every member of the MSM is also guilty.
I know -- let's have a mass lynching party!
I don't think Nixon ordered the burglary. When he found out his subordinated did this, his mistake was trying to protect them from being found out.
You can always tell who has been raised on MSM propaganda.
You are aware of course that while the REpubs were spying on Democrats the Democrats were also spying on Repubs? A well proven fact that the Democrats also had spying and tapping operations as well.
Oooo! That's gonna leave a well-deserved mark.
