  • How will Democrats do in the midterms — and 2020? Richard Nixon's 1972 re-election may offer clues

    With the midterms mere weeks away, Democrats are already preparing to invoke the era of Richard M. Nixon and Watergate. Anticipating a "blue wave" that will retake the House in November, they have started laying out plans for impeachment proceedings — or at least serious investigations with that goal in mind. But the Democrats’ political positions, combined with their actions during and in the wake of the confirmation hearings for now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s U.S. Supreme Court nomination, suggest a different Nixon-era touchstone: his 1972 landslide re-election. The actions of Democrats in 1972 helped propel a Republican president originally brought into...

    Eleventh-hour campaign mailings from the New York State Democratic Committee imply Cynthia Nixon is anti-Semitic — prompting an online maelstrom of outrage and denials Saturday night, with Gov. Cuomo and the state party calling the mailer a “mistake.” “With anti-Semitism and bigotry on the rise, we can’t take a chance with inexperienced Cynthia Nixon,” reads the mailer, which says it was paid for by the New York State Democratic Committee. It goes on to accuse Nixon of being against the funding of yeshivas — a topic she’s actually dodged — and falsely accuses her of being “silent on the rise...

    Actress/activist Cynthia Nixon, a socialist who wants to govern the State of New York, is honest about how she intends to do it. “I will tax the rich to fix the subway,” Nixon tweeted on Wednesday. It’s not the first time she’s said that. Her tweet includes a short video, explaining that she takes the subway every day; the system on which New Yorkers depend is broken; and she will do something about it. “It’s not going to be easy,” she admits. “And it’s not going to be cheap. But we don’t have a choice.” …

    It’s four more days until the big Democratic primary in New York, and gubernatorial candidate (and actress) Cynthia Nixon is pulling out all the stops. In an interview this week, she returned to one of the favorite talking points of Democratic socialists these days, Medicare for all. Speaking with the New York Daily News, Nixon was adamant that lawmakers should move forward and pass “her plan” rather than listening to Governor Andrew Cuomo who has managed to resist the idea so far. And how will New York pay for this massive show of generosity to its residents? Nixon openly...
  • Kavanaugh should not decide any cases concerning Trump

    The Houston Chronicle ^ | September 9, 2018 | Ruth Marcus, The Washington Post
    Under the unusual circumstances surrounding his selection, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should have agreed to recuse himself from deciding cases involving the investigation of President Trump. The reason Kavanaugh asserted at his confirmation hearing for refusing to make such a pledge — that it would violate the imperative of judicial independence — is entirely unconvincing. In turn, senators should decline to approve Kavanaugh’s nomination unless he does so. And, since that’s not likely to happen, in the event that a case involving the Trump investigation were to come before a Justice Kavanaugh, he should not participate — for his...
  • (NY Dem. Governor Candidate) Cynthia Nixon self-identifies as 'queer,' not lesbian

    NY Daily News ^ | September 3, 2018 | Kenneth Lovett
    Actress Cynthia Nixon has been routinely described as trying to become the state’s first lesbian governor. But Nixon actually doesn't self-identify as a lesbian. She considers herself queer, campaign spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said. Queer - one of the Qs in the LGBTQ movement, along with questioning—encompasses people who don't necessarily feel they fall under any specific label. Queer for decades had been used as a derisive term to attack nonheterosexuals. But in recent years, the term has been reclaimed by some - especially younger people - in the LGBTQ community. Hitt declined to discuss the reasons why Nixon identifies as...

    At their contentious debate Wednesday night, Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Socialist candidate Cynthia Nixon disagreed on just about everything, including law and order in their State of New York. Nixon said if she’s elected governor, she would prioritize “things that really make a difference in people’s lives” over law and order. The debate moderator noted that Cuomo has been criticized for deploying New York State Troopers from upstate to patrol New York City bridges and streets. “Would you continue putting troopers on the streets of New York City?” the moderator asked Nixon. “Look, we are at a moment where...

    **SNIP** Defending against her suggestion that he's a corrupt parallel to President Donald Trump in Washington and deflecting the odor of criminal prosecutions of people close to him, Cuomo tried to cast Nixon as a corporate donor herself who solicited "favors" from her friend de Blasio. "You're a corporation," he said, faulting the allegedly minimal way by which she disclosed her income tax forms. She noted that in his first race for governor in 2010, his disclosure followed the election. She said her business corporation is that of a small business owner. Also hyperbolically, Cuomo called agents of the Immigration...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) and actress Cynthia Nixon traded personal barbs Wednesday night during a tense gubernatorial primary debate. Arguments erupted over the degree to which each candidate has opposed President Trump, New York City's subway system, health care and corruption during the 60-minute debate . Cuomo is the heavy favorite to win a third term in the Sept. 13 primary against political newcomer Nixon, who trails Cuomo in every public poll, according to The Washington Post. The debate became heated following a question about New York's MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority), which Nixon said Cuomo had left underfunded. Cuomo was...

Newly-released tax documents show that Marinoni in 2013 drew a $96,200 salary - $117,560 counting retirement contributions - from The Fickle Mermaid, a pass-through corporation Nixon set up to handle her acting income and expenses. Nixon paid Marinoni a salary because of her role as her business partner, a campaign spokeswoman said. The company stopped paying Marinoni in 2014, when she got a job in the city Department of Education under Mayor de Blasio, a longtime Nixon pal whose campaign she...

    Its become a common Anti American trope to blame the United States for PinochetÂ’s atrocities. Despite the fact that there was never any American Involvement in the 1973 coup which installed Pinochet, a criticism of US Foreign Policy has been of its support of Dictators and one of those commonly named is Pinochet. However the notion that the United States supported Augusto Pinochet is also a false one. From the Years of Upheaval By Henry Kissinger; "It soon emerged that there were major obstacles to assisting the new Chilean authorities. To be sure, loans from private banks increased sharply as...

    he Watergate tapes stand as one of the stunning, implausible twists of American history. Nixon confessed his crimes and recorded himself in the process. Who does that? In their book The Final Days, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein write, “the single thread that linked the problems together was the President’s tapes. The lawyers represented a President who had bugged himself, who had blurted his secrets into hidden microphones. They had not yet heard the tapes, nor seen any transcripts of them. The President would not permit it. They were told to mount a defense, but were not given the information...

    An interesting phenomenon in politics is the flip flop. What would cause a politician who takes a stand on an issue to reverse himself and take precisely the opposite stand on the same issue? Even more interesting is the about face or volte face. The volte face goes beyond the flip flop because it represents a total and usually lasting shift of course, as when Reagan abandoned the Democratic Party and became a Republican. More interesting even than the volte face is when a whole group or party makes this shift. Perhaps the most dramatic example in our lifetime is...

    John Dean knows what it’s like for a scandal with the power to destroy a president to stalk the White House. Dean served as White House Counsel under President Nixon and can testify to the enormous toll that lying, deflecting, hiding and obstructing took on him and his colleagues following the 1972 Watergate break-in. A few months after Nixon fired him, in 1973, Dean testified before the Senate and became the first member of the Nixon administration to directly implicate the president in the cover-up. After serving four months for conspiracy to obstruct justice, Dean became an investment banker, lecturer...

    Bob Woodward, a CIA mouthpiece, foisted off an absurd fiction on a gullible public, called “Deep Throat.” When his fraud was exposed, he and the CIA trotted out someone they claimed to be the “real real” Deep Throat, a stroke victim named Mark Felt who had been highly placed in the FBI during Watergate, and who “admitted” in a befogged state that he had been the informant to Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. It was fiction to “prove” fiction.

    Democrat pollster and political consultant par excellence Doug Schoen has spent over 30 years advising presidents and prime ministers. Unlike most such political animals, he also has a deep understanding of political philosophy, which has moved further "right" the more he has seen government in action. Last but not least, Doug's one of those rare few remaining JFK Democrats who has always believed in defending capitalism and America's national interest. I had Doug on the Big Ideas podcast to draw out some of his lessons from a life well-spent as a master practitioner and student of politics, to share his...
