Christie's Style 11/11/14
Virtually everyone heard about Governor Chris Christie telling a complaining constituent to "sit down and shut up" but that simple report does not do the actual event justice.

Bernard Spitzer RIP 11/11/14
Eliot Spitzer's father Bernard Spitzer died last week. While most obits mentioned the $3.7 million loan Spiter gave his son's campaign for Attorney General few mentioned the loan was illegal and that Spitzer lied about it's existence to both the New York Times and the New York Daily News, admitting to the subterfuge only after he was safely elected New York Attorney General.

LBJ Makes Millions On Vietnam War 11/11/14
Bell helicopter rival Kaman Aircraft signed a contract for the procurement of 220 helicopters bound for Vietnam that was submitted and approved by Congress in 1963. However within days of LBJ becoming President, the contract was nullified and re-awarded to Bell Helicopter. The US involvement in Vietnam was escalated, and Bell thrived. The Johnsons owned considerable stock in Bell and had used the company for transportation in his barnstorming of Texas in 1948.

John Dean Smack Down At Texas Book Festival 10/28/14
This past Saturday I confronted former Nixon Counsel John Dean about his true role in Watergate. Dean was a featured speaker at the Texas Book Festival, an event dominated by the Texas establishment. As you can see I listed an substantial amount of evidence and testimony that Dean himself ordered the Watergate break-in. The Daily Caller called it a "fiery exchange"

Hachet Job: Roger Stone's Edgy Takes On History and Politics 10/19/14
Everything you know is wrong. At least when it comes to two of the most notorious chapters of 20th century American history -- the Kennedy assassination and Watergate.

Another Bush? 10/8/14
Multiple sources report that former Governor Jeb Bush is moving inexorably towards a 2016 Presidential candidacy. Politico reported that "A person in attendance at the former president's 90th birthday party in Kennebunkport this past June said the elder Bush spoke of a Jeb Bush candidacy as a near certainty. The elder Bush is also said to have leaned on his son to run."and "Jeb Bush's father , (Family patriarch George H. W. Bush) is eager for his son to run, even telling a visitor at a recent family gathering in Kennebunkport, Maine, that a presidential campaign and a "return of the family dynasty to power was a near certainty".

The Man Who Killed Kennedy-the Case Against LBJ 10/8/14

Obama And The Constitution 9/5/14
Forty years ago public outrage about the actions of President Richard Milhous Nixon, lead by his long time liberal critics, forced him to be the first U.S. chief executive to resign the presidency. Critics screamed about Nixon's extra-legal and extra-constitutional conduct as protestors ringed the White House chanting "Jail to the Chief."

Happy Birthday LBJ 9/5/14
President Lyndon Baines Johnson's birthday was August 27th. That's my birthday too.

When Tricky Dick Muled Weed For Ambassador Satchmo 8/19/14
Richard Nixon could be quite naive. In the late 1950s, the U.S. State Department made jazz legend Louis Armstrong a "Goodwill Ambassador" and underwrote a concert tour in Europe and Asia. On his return from the first two tours, Armstrong and his entourage were waived through customs without a search based on Satchmo's ambassadorial status, but when he landed at Idlewild Airport in New York in 1958, he was directed toward the customs lines. Customs agents had been tipped off that contraband was being imported into the country. Armstrong joined a long line of travelers lined up for inspections. Unfortunately, the jazz trumpeter was carrying three pounds of marijuana in his suitcase. Once Armstrong realized he was about to be busted and would bring shame on the country he was traveling on behalf of, he began sweating profusely.

Actions Over Words 8/19/14
At 6 a.m. on Saturday October 6, 1973, White House chief of staff Alexander Haig woke up President Nixon at his home in California with news that Egypt and Syria had attacked Israel. The news of Middle East aggression shocked the American foreign policy and intelligence communities to such an extent that a study prepared by the CIA Center for the Study of Intelligence in conjunction with the Nixon Presidential Library concluded, "To intelligence historians, the October 1973 war is almost synonymous with intelligence failure.

Revisiting The Why Of Watergate 8/12/14
The news is full of Watergate recaps, most of which focus on what happened and how it all led up to President Richard Nixon's resignation. All of it is as interesting today as it was 40 years ago, even though the American people now know a lot more about what actually happened.
