  • Presidential Impeachment Proceedings - Richard M. Nixon

    This is an excerpt with some particularly timely clips. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ To avoid handing over all of the 42 subpoenaed tapes to the House Judiciary Committee, Nixon instead released 1,254 pages of edited transcripts of 20 tapes in the spring of 1974. But the transcripts caused a national sensation as Americans glimpsed behind closed doors for the first time at a cynical Nixon who frequently used obscene language in the Oval Office, in contrast to his carefully tailored public image. The transcripts also revealed Nixon frequently discussing Watergate including the raising of "hush money" to keep the burglars quiet. "We could...

    Richard Nixon taped roughly 3,700 hours of his conversations as president. About 3,000 hours of those tapes have been released, while the rest remain closed to protect family privacy or national security. The public has a general impression of what’s on the Nixon White House tapes—the expletives deleted, the so-called “smoking gun” when Nixon appeared to try to use the CIA to derail the FBI investigation of Watergate, the slurs against blacks and Jews. But very few people have actually listened to more than a few hours of tapes. Less than five percent of the recordings have been transcribed or...

    WASHINGTON (July 12) — The National Archives made available on Wednesday more than 11 hours of tape recordings that show President Richard M. Nixon maneuvering in 1972 to remake the Republican Party in his image, crush South Vietnamese opposition to his efforts to end the Vietnam War and dole out patronage to ethnic groups based on how much they supported his re-election. The release of the tapes along with 78,000 pages of newly disclosed documents should be a trove of fascinating detail and context for historians, archives officials said. The Nixon library in Yorba Linda, Calif., is now part of...

    What it’s like to listen to the former president all day, every day by Steve Lowery If you’ve become tired of the release of Nixon tapes in which the former president disparages races, religions and former presidents, you can blame and sympathize with Karl Weissenbach. Since 1991, Weissenbach has worked with the National Archives’ Nixon presidential materials staff in College Park, Maryland, the last six years as director. Given the fascination with the last 240-hour batch Weissenbach’s crew put out, we thought we’d ask him what it’s like to have what we regard as the most exciting job in...

    In June, Pacifica Radio's Los Angeles station, KPFK-FM, hosted a thirty-hour marathon of Dr. Kwaku Person-Lynn's anti-Semitic "Afrikan Mental Liberation Weekend."  It was the first time this once-annual program appeared for almost a decade. It had been banned by station management in 1993, after a long, hard-fought pressure campaign to remove it.  Afrikan Mental Liberation Weekend typically includes claims that the Jews disproportionately participated in the slave trade and persecuted blacks; in the past, he responded to criticism by calling the regional director of the Anti-Defamation League a "psychotic, idiotic, European Jew."   He has regularly played tapes by Nation of...
