  • Will Alexander Resignation Leter (Protests Leftist Bias at Taxpayer-Supported Nixon Library

    The Orange County Register ^ | September 3, 2011 | Will Alexander
    I'm writing to offer my resignation from the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace Docent Guild. While the decision was tough, the reason is simple: The president, who admirably redeemed himself in the sunset of his life from the monstrous shadow of Watergate, is now being enthusiastically dishonored at his own library by a "Manchurian" figure, Dr. Timothy Naftali, director of NARA. Naftali is so driven by his personal ideology that none of his unquestioned brilliance and tireless audacity is now capable of producing an ounce of basic common sense. What is that basic common sense? That presidential libraries are built,...

    Library Throws Book at Nixon by Brian Calle Some controversy over the recently revised Watergate exhibit at the Nixon Presidential Library & Museum in Yorba Linda has provoked some questions over presidential libraries, their value, purpose for public consumption and their role in the remembrance of past presidents. One docent at the Nixon library, my Register colleague Will Alexander, opted to resign in protest of the new exhibit after 10 years of volunteer service. And friends and former colleagues of Richard Nixon have been critical of the museum's new director, Timothy Naftali. Some critics have even suggested that the...

    The New Watergate By Anne Walker Where I stand depends on where I sit . . . . or in this case . . . . where I used to sit. It is so true. Those of us who lived through the days of what came to be known as “Watergate”, the days of reading about our pals in the Washington Post every day, seeing them accused and vilified, hauled in front of a grand jury for countless hours while their legal bills sky rocketed, go to trial, and be convicted of perjury, not wrongdoing, and end up in...

    According to Max Emanuel Donner's glowing report, former Arkansas Governor and likely 2012 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, won the hearts of potential supporters in Yerba Buena, California on Sunday night. "The admiring crowd and frequent photo ops with the Presidential aura of this Presidential landmark are ideally suited to politics in the age of social networking. Hundreds of enthusiastic fans had their pictures taken with Huckabee smiling with Presidential memorabilia in the background.This enthusiasm was quite genuine, inspired mainly by Huckabee’s own likeability and approachability. Visitor Charles Rhee came to the Nixon Library for the first time, saying “I’m here...

    Substance Still Sells, Sarah Writing about Sarah Palin's bizarre Thanksgiving Day defense of her North Korea gaffe, Andrew Sullivan makes the point people used to make about Richard Nixon after his rocking, socking congressional and senatorial campaigns and especially the Alger Hiss case: There is a meanness, a disrespect, a vicious partisanship that, if allowed to gain more power, would split this country more deeply and more rancorously than at any time in recent years. And that's saying something. Ironic, yes. Determinative, no. Though he was a divisive, highly partisan figure whom a significant number of Americans always loathed,...

    YORBA LINDA – From former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Barbara Franklin to TV personality Ben Stein, friends and former staffers of President Richard Nixon are being drawn together this weekend to celebrate, reminisce, and debate the meaning of Nixon's legacy. The weekend-long celebration marking 20 years since Nixon came to Yorba Linda to open his library and birthplace includes some events that are free and open to the public. President Nixon dedicated his library in Yorba Linda on July 19, 1990. The library is now part of the National Archives and Records Administration. The Richard Nixon Foundation is calling it...

    The War Over Nixon The ghost of our most divisive modern president haunts efforts to make his library tell the truth by Scott Martelle Tim Naftali thought docents at the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum should be honest about the Watergate tapes. The docents, though, couldn’t talk about what they didn’t know. “I had docents come to me and say, ‘Is there anything incriminating on the tapes?’ ” says Naftali, the library director. The tapes were so damaging to Richard M. Nixon that they were a reason he resigned as president of the United States. Naftali also thought the docents...

    A Small Victory? By Anne Walker As regular readers of my blog know, I have been very upset that the docents at the Nixon Library and Museum were “fired” from conducting student tours. After seventeen years of leading the school tours, they were replaced by people, many of them interns, working with the National Archives. This has resulted in blatant disrespect for the President we represent and incidents of revisionist history. The reason, we were told, is that the docents were too political and positive. Now, why I ask you, would someone want to donate hours and hours to...

    The past haunts Richard Nixon's library/h2> Once privately run, the Yorba Linda presidential museum is making a transition to government operation. And that has turned statues of Mao Tse-tung and Chou En-lai into political footballs. The statues depict two old men relaxing in easy chairs. As others mill about the drawing room, the men engage in conversation, one gesturing at the other to underscore a point. For nearly 20 years the likenesses of China's communist leaders Mao Tse-tung and Chou En-lai have sat perfectly still in the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda. Now, they are creating...

    For almost 40 years, people have blamed Richard Nixon for escalating the Vietnam War into Cambodia and Laos unilaterally, and painted Nixon as just short of a dictator for doing so. History has a habit of turning contemporary opinion on its ear as information comes to light, and a Washington Post story shows that will happen with Nixon and the war as well. According to newly-released documents, Nixon sought and received the support of Democratic leadership in Congress in expanding the war:

    AFP ^ | June 24, 2009
    WASHINGTON - Despite pleges to protect South Vietnam, former US president Richard Nixon privately vowed to "cut off the head" of its leader unless he backed peace with the communist North, tapes released Tuesday showed. The tapes appear to confirm charges by South Vietnam's late president, Nguyen Van Thieu, who tearfully accused the United States of breaking its word to protect Saigon when the southern capital fell in 1975. The National Archives released more than 150 hours of new tapes from Nixon, who notoriously recorded his conversations. Nixon is heard railing against the media and Congress for allegedly undercutting the...

    WASHINGTON — On Jan. 23, 1973, when the Supreme Court struck down laws criminalizing abortion in Roe v. Wade, President Richard M. Nixon made no public statement. But privately, newly released tapes reveal, he expressed ambivalence. Nixon worried that greater access to abortions would foster “permissiveness,” and said that “it breaks the family.” But he also saw a need for abortion in some cases — like interracial pregnancies, he said. “There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,” he told an aide, before adding, “Or a rape.”

This is Nixon we’re talking about, people. In February of 1973, President Nixon called future president and then-Republican National Committee chairman George H.W. Bush, and recounted a recent visit to the South Carolina state legislature.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., June 23, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Although US President Richard Nixon remained silent on the landmark 1973 Supreme Court rulings that legalized abortion on demand, newly released tapes show the disgraced President actually believed legal abortion was “necessary” in certain cases, such as when the baby was of mixed-race or conceived through rape.The information has come to light thanks to the Nixon Presidential Library releasing today over 154 hours of tape recordings from the Nixon White House that were recorded in January and February 1973.Although the quality of the recordings are poor, Nixon and an aide held a...

    Another window is opening on Richard Nixon's presidency with the release of hundreds of tape recordings and thousands of documents from that time. The latest materials from the Nixon Presidential Library, to be released Tuesday, will offer a glimpse into fateful days of the Watergate scandal as well as the waning days of the U.S. war in Vietnam. Nixon's Cold War diplomacy, the U.S. cease-fire with Hanoi and the administration's reaction to the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion are included in the release. The tapes, to be put online, are from January and February 1973. That period covers the conviction...
