Dick Morris Comments on RFK Jr.'s Longshot Presidential Bid

"You just mentioned that because we've moved on. I want to get back to Tucker Carlson and Fox. But you just mentioned that The Washington Post reported that tomorrow Tuesday, Biden would make his announcement that he's running for president in 2024. You said today for some reason it looks like, in fact, that is not happening and then you said it may have something to do with the entrance into the race on the democratic side of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.. That's something the media has been not covering. And it's very significant. Let's go back to the history of Robert F. Kennedy's senior in 1967 and 68. Johnson was president and his ratings were crashing just like Biden's because of the Vietnam War. And there was tremendous dissent in the Democratic Party against Johnson, led by Robert F. Kennedy senior, the U.S. senator. And everybody pressured Bobby Kennedy to run, run against Johnson and the primaries. And he said, I won't do it. It would split the party and could elect Richard Nixon, the beta of the Democratic Party. So I'm not going to split the party. I'm not going to do that. Now, there's tremendous pressure inside the party on Biden to step aside. And maybe let Michelle Obama run maybe let Hillary run maybe let AOC run you're kidding. But she's literally not old enough to run. No, she is by three months. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren. And just like there was before, for Bobby Kennedy to run. And justice Bobby Kennedy wouldn't do it because he was going to split the party in the face of Nixon. These guys are not doing it because they don't want to split the party in the face of Trump.

Caller: There Should Be Some Kind of Immunity for Elected Presidents

"This is kind of complicated for me, but I think it would be a simple thing for you. I'm tired of what's been going on with Trump from the other side. And I'm just giving my opinion. I wish that there would be a new ruling new amendment, something passed where if you're running for president of the United States and especially if you're elected, if most more than half of the people are more than half of the electoral votes go your way and you've been elected that the people have made it a good decision. The more people involved, more likely they'll have a good decision. There should be some kind of immunity, not for everything, but for all of this smaller stuff. Well, he arguably, he arguably has it now. There's still the remember what Gerald Ford did with Richard Nixon. I mean, Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon to spare America. Remember those days how quaint that was. Back in the day when Gerald Ford put the country ahead of his own political ambitions, it likely cost him reelection. America didn't probably forgive him for it. They wanted their pound to flesh. There's a lot of stuff that could happen. If Trump, it does emerge victorious and incidentally so far about 83% of people taking the birch gold survey poll question over at Mike online dot com have said yes, you think he will emerge victorious.

What Happened to the Democrats? Professor Paul Kengor Explains

"A historian by training Paul. What happened to the Democrat party? You know, I think back to the likes of scoop Jackson and JFK. They never would have called for violence against somebody they politically disagreed with. And also they were Ardent anti communists. Have you, have you an explanation for what's happened? Yeah, you know, going back to JFK. I mean, they were, they reached across the aisle. In fact, speaking of anti communism, JFK ran against Richard Nixon for president in 1960. And years before that, the Kennedy family and Richard Nixon, they were all tight. They were all close. In fact, JFK's father Joseph Kennedy wrote a check to Nixon the Nixon Senate campaign when he was running against Helen gahagan Douglas, who was called the pink lady. And they said, defeat her dick, right? They cross party lines. Joe McCarthy, Joe McCarthy, who was a Republican, was very tight with the Kennedy family. Dated one of the Kennedy daughters used to hang out at hyannis port with at the Kennedy compound. Robert F. Kennedy worked for Joe McCarthy. In fact, Robert F. Kennedy's daughter, I think it's Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. Her godfather is Joe McCarthy. And then fast forwarding to Ronald Reagan in another Massachusetts, famous politician, tip O'Neill. How they got along so well.

What Is Roger Stone Doing in New York?

"Back. I'm talking to Roger Stone, roger. I live in New York City, I do not mug people, but I do live in New York City. I think it's overstated about the crime. That's here. We don't need to get into that. All I'm trying to say is, I live here, you rarely visit here. You visited here. I was out of town. I was very upset by that. I wish I got more notice when you're going to be around. But tell us what were you doing in New York and did you say antifa was trying to attack you? So I was invited by the New York young Republican club, which is the oldest, largest and most vibrant and active young Republican club in the country. Former members, governor Thomas E Dewey, attorney general, Herbert brownell, governor Nelson Rockefeller, former vice president, Richard Nixon when he lived all associate members. Verily a John foster dulles an associate member. Very Augusta and storied history. It is a really a vibrant club of young people and they invited me to come in for a martini mixer. This is where I spoke about the history of the martini. I reveal Richard Nixon's own secret recipe for the silver bullet. And then I move behind the bar and with the assistance of three bartenders, I mixed and poured over almost 300 martinis. By the way, The Daily Beast said they were margaritas, just to show you how to actually yeah, they're not big on mixology or theology, but that's the only two things of which they're totally ignorant. But at least call themselves The Daily Beast, so it's right out there in front, you know exactly what they are. I think they're corporate slogan is 6, 6, 6, as a matter of fact. But in any event, so with the way this worked is you bought your ticket on eventbrite. And then roughly an hour before the event, the club would send you an email telling you the location of the event. Otherwise you have an almost guarantee of violence and other protesters. But the location of this event in Little Italy evidently leaked and there were so many bomb threats and death threats to the Italian restaurant where it was going to be held. That they canceled before hours noticed.

A Little Story About Ajax the Great

"Talking to Spencer clavin, who has written a new book how to save the west ancient wisdom for 5 modern crises. There's only one other book with the plural word crises in it that I can think of written by Richard Nixon. Did you know that? 6 crises. 6 crises written by Nixon. Yeah, I think it was the late 70s, his saddle river period. You mentioned before we're talking about the classics, which inevitably come up when you're talking about the west. We're talking about the ancient Greeks and what does Athens have to do with Jerusalem. And just a fun fact, just because no one else will care about this, but I think you might. You mentioned, first time on this program, anyone has ever mentioned Ajax, telemon, Ajax. There you go. I want to meet them. Beef witted Ajax in the words of Shakespeare. But what I loved is when I realized that Ajax was the anglicization of the Greek ayas, depending on how you pronounce it, right? And then I realized, oh yeah, in the 1920s, whenever they came up with Ajax, the cleanser that people use to clean their sinks and whatever. It's because it's strong. So there was once a culture. In the 1920s and 30s, when people were so literate in the classics, that everyone know Ajax was like Hercules. He's strong. And how depressing. Right? Okay, but it gets weird. Oh, yeah. It gets weirder. I was in Greece because I'm Greek. And I saw a canister of Ajax, and you'd think that what would the Greek version of Ajax, the blue dot cleanser? What would the Greek version be called? Of course, it would be IS, right? Naturally. A zeta alpha Kappa. Wow. And I thought no one in the world cares about this, but me and someday in the future. Maybe I'll have Spencer clavin on. And I'll let him know that I had this crisis.

Who Sold Us This False China Narrative? Gordon Chang Explains

"This incredibly naive and just counterfactual analysis of the world's largest communist dictatorship begin? Was it Kissinger convincing Nixon to open to China and thus put a wedge between Beijing or Moscow? Who sold us this bill of goods Gordon? A lot of different people. You know, you can go back to, for instance, Richard Nixon's famous article in foreign affairs. And then of course, Nixon's overtures to China in 1972 trip, Kissinger was there. And then Bill Clinton, Clinton talked about, you know, you can't nail Jell-O to a wall, which was his reference to the Communist Party's inability to control information, but they've done a pretty good job of that. Especially with those narratives that you pointed out in the beginning. So this was failure across liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans. You know, just about everybody believed it. Because this theory sounded good. Especially sounded good after the failure in the fall of the Soviet Union. People thought, oh, you know, this is as Francis fukuyama, the political scientist said, this is the end of history. Right. Yeah, events will continue to occur, but democracy and free markets have won.

You're hearing it for the first time as I am cut number 21. So if you want to understand if you really want to understand how the American government actually works at the highest levels, and if you want to know why they don't teach history anymore, one thing you should know is that the most popular president in American history was Richard Nixon, Richard Nixon. Yet somehow without a single vote being cast by a single American voter Richard Nixon was kicked out of office and replaced by the only unelected president in American history. So we went for the most popular president to a president, nobody voted for. Wait a minute, you may ask, why didn't I know that? Wasn't Richard Nixon a criminal? Wasn't he despised by all decent people? No. He wasn't. In fact, if any president could claim to be the people's choice, it was Richard Nixon. Richard Nixon was reelected in 1972 by the largest margin of the popular vote ever recorded before or since. Nixon got 17 million more votes than his opponent. Less than two years later, he was gone. He was forced to resign, and in his place an obedient servant of the federal agencies called Gerald Ford took over The White House. How did that happen? What's a long story, but here are the highlights and they tell you a lot. Richard Nixon believed that elements in the federal bureaucracy were working to undermine the American system of government and had been doing that for a long time. He often said that, he was absolutely right.

Pete Ricketts' Massive Turn Around

"You know, Pete ricketts, there's a story in the post about you this morning titled Pete ricketts massive political turnaround. And because you lost once. When you ran for Senate the first time, that puts you in a category with people like Mitt Romney, John thune. I mean, I go back to Richard Nixon losing 1960 and 1962. Do you think it helps to have lost once before you win twice as governor and now you'll have reelection for senator in two years? Well, I think it's a general rule that you learn way more from your failures than you do your successes, right? There are more painful, the intended to do more evaluation of what you can do better. And certainly my Senate loss in 2006 did teach me a lot about politics. It didn't discharge me from getting involved in it. I enjoyed the campaign. I love getting out and meeting nebraskans. And I learned a lot. I think I was able to turn those lessons into successes in my race for governor and certainly the people I met in my O 6 Senate race made it possible for me to get elected when I ran for governor in 2014. So that was absolutely vital to my success and winning in 2014 was my loss in 2006.

Lord Conrad Black on Jefferson Davis, Richard Nixon and Donald Trump

"Lord Conrad black, welcome back to America first. Thank you, Sebastian. And thank you for your kind greeting kind introduction. So you've written numerous works on the chief executive on president Nixon on Donald Trump on FDR. Yesterday, the house forwarded multiple criminal indictment referrals to the Department of Justice, which if president Trump were found guilty would lead to a 40 year prison sentence, a man who was a presidential historian had this to say about recent events. This is Michael beschloss on MSNBC cut 9 play cut. You know, who was Jefferson Davis? He wasn't president of anything, confederacy wasn't a country, but he waged an insurrection for four years. And he was put in jail for two years, and he was finally never tried because the equivalent of the Justice Department in those days, the attorney general of the United States wasn't sure what you would get a conviction was thought it would look too political. So what happened when Jefferson Davis was let out? Just like Donald Trump. And just like Richard Nixon, although Nixon didn't, I think not one tenth of the bad things that Donald Trump did. Nixon didn't do one tenth of the bad things Donald Trump did and Donald Trump is far more like Jefferson Davis. Bachelor's actually used to be a presidential historian, correct Conrad. Yes. And I thought of his first books, were very good, that he has gradually degenerated and he is now just a babbling fuel. And what he says on these matters as the recording you just played for us indicates and shows is simply bunk. It's just done. What on earth he imagines parallel between Donald Trump and Jefferson Davis, who led an insurrection in which three quarters of a million people died because he insisted on the retention of slavery. Where he draws a parallel like that, I really don't know.

Monica Crowley: God Revealed to Me 50 Years of Deep State Tyranny

"It means we're no longer in a representative republic. We're in a tyranny. You know, one day toward the end of the summer, Todd, I had this like lightning bolt that just came into my brain and it was definitely a hand of God kind of thing. And it just dawned on me that I've been blessed to work for two American presidents. President Nixon, during the last years of his life, and president Trump at the Treasury Department during his administration. And what God revealed to me, which I hadn't thought of or put together before, is that this has been a 50 year arc of deep state tyranny and undermining of the constitution and the will of the people. So the deep state had a direct hand in removing Richard Nixon. Why? Because Nixon was an existential threat to their absolute grip on power. In Nixon's second term, he was going to do what Donald Trump began to do, which is drain the swamp and reform the executive branch, which includes the DoJ and the FBI and IRS, et cetera. So we had to be removed fast forward 50 years, Donald Trump, same thing because he poses the same threat. And in fact, over the last week or so, you can bring the timeline even further back to 1963 because we're getting these documents now that showed that the CIA had a hand in the assassination of JFK. So we are now in this position in this country where we are beginning to realize that, you know, we're out here voting and doing our civic duty and none of it matters because the real powers with the deep state and that is a terrifying proposition to a lot of Americans, but as long past time that we understand the reality of what we're dealing with so we can counter it and fight back.

"In the TBN studio with a really special guest, someone I feel privileged to call friend. His name is Roger Stone. We're on your welcome. Great to be here. Now, there are many people that know you and love you. There are some people that know you and hate you. Many people, more people who don't know of you who aren't sufficiently politically involved to know who you are, to me, you were a legendary figure, you worked with Richard Nixon when you were very young, how would, I mean, for someone who really doesn't know you, which will be many people in my audience unless they saw you on the program the last time. But how do you describe yourself these days? Well, yes, I'm veteran Republican strategist. I've worked for 12 national presidential campaigns. Yes, I started with Richard Nixon, worked three campaigns for Ronald Reagan, 1976, 1980 and 1984. Worked for George H. W. Bush was kind of drafted into that. I'm not a bush. Was he a Republican, by the way? Barely. Yeah. He was kind of a crony capitalist. He was kind of like a Mitt Romney Republican, so like right on the edge. Kristen sinema. Up until the time he got nominated, of course, he was a Reagan Republican, and then once elected president, he proved to be a rhino. He tacked Stalin word. Not that there's anything wrong with that. You know, it's a big tent. It's a big tent, man. So, and then of course, probably one of the first people in the country is to suggest to Donald Trump that he should run for president. Now, wait a minute, I didn't know that. 1988, we made a famous trip to New Hampshire. We're sitting in his office one day. I met him in 1979, Trump this is. When I was working for governor Reagan, I went to Trump's office to try to recruit him for Reagan's finance committee. I was successful, by the way, both Fred and his son, Donald Trump, were on our finance committee. We became very good friends. And then in 1988, it was visiting him and he was leafing through The New York Times, and he said, George Bush, and Michael Dukakis. There has to be somebody better. There

How President Obama Gave Us President Biden

"Obama since I already spoke about him earlier. Let me go ahead and work this in. Obama and this is the man knows how to campaign. Like him or not, I can't stand him. I think he was the worst president in American history. The reason why I say that and I realize there are bad presidents out there, Andrew Johnson, in my opinion, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon really screwed us as a Republican with the EPA and going off the gold standard and all these all these kinds of things Woodrow Wilson right, you'll hear you'll hear about him and Biden obviously is horrible and many people contend that Biden is the worst president ever. Obviously other people talk about Jimmy Carter as well. The reason why I think Barack Obama is is because he said a lot of the stuff that we're experiencing today and place. He set the foundation. Were it not for Barack Obama? We wouldn't even have a Joe Biden. He rescued Joe Biden. Joe Biden was nothing more than a corrupt crook, right? That's all he was. That's all he would have ever been. That would have been his legacy. Just a corrupt no good crook that was in Washington, D.C. for his entire life, never amounted to anything. Everyone there understood that the guy was complete and utter moron and a jerk, but Obama is the one that gave him the platform that he has essentially asked today. In my opinion, helped to resurrect him. But Obama said a lot of this stuff in place. This cultural arc system that you see, there were orders issued executive order so on it issued throughout his administration, the way that he would come out and talk about if I had a son, you know, he looked just like Trayvon. I'm like, he looked just like Trayvon. But what are you talking about? You have black half white. You're someone look like Trayvon. For God's sakes. I mean, just a little stuff like that. There's someone to look like Blake Griffin. I used to say, I don't even know where Blake Griffin is. You know, where Blake Griffin is. Now I don't even know where that. He plays for the Celtics.

"He was a Nazi. He was Hitler. He was Satan. He was a dictator. He was a racist. He was corrupt. He was a tool of the wealthy. The newspapers hated him. The entire comedy industry devoted itself to the singular task of mocking and discrediting him. His name, Richard Nixon. And Ronald Reagan, and George Bush, and George Bush again, and Donald Trump. And whoever comes after Trump. For almost as long as anyone can remember, leftists have reserved the right to dispense with reason and critiquing their political opponents. Relying instead on biased personal insults. This is always true for whoever carries the banner of leader of the Republican Party. Especially if that leader is also president. Sometimes these attacks work as they did during the administrations of Nixon and both bushes. And sometimes they become epic self owns. As was the case for Reagan and Trump, whose legacies of peace and prosperity seem now like some forgotten golden age of legend. It doesn't matter when this tactic fails. Just like it never matters when leftists fail at anything. In a matter of decades in the 20th century, they can spill more blood in the name of communism than the entire history of religious wars combined. And yet still criticize all religions for being divisive.

Who Are the Real Climate Criminals?

"I have to just have you give us some clarity mark on the disparity geographically. So America is lambasted by the likes of Karl Schwab, the World Economic Forum, Greenpeace, you name it, the guy who worshippers. But which countries in the world, I mean, we have an unbelievable record. I know under the Trump administration, after we left the Paris climate accords, we actually improved our CO2 output after we left that outrageous regime. Who are the real big players that pollute the atmosphere and who get away with it and who seemingly don't care Mark yes, well, great question. First of all, the United States, since the first earth day in 1970, we have radically improved air and water quality, while at the same time improving economic growth and big increases in population. Having done all that, the World Health Organization recognizes the U.S. as among the cleanest air and environmental quality in the world. And this is our success story. And yes, you mentioned Donald Trump. Donald Trump pulled out of the UN Paris agreement and the United States drum roll please Sebastian led the world in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. No other country came close. It was because of our technological innovation of fracking, replacing fracking, replacing coal with fracking, which was a lower emitting, more efficient form of energy and less environmentally disruptive. I mean, you would drill a hole in the ground and then drill horizontally and get the gas out that way. So this was a huge success story. But instead of allowing this to continue, this was all collapsed. And we went from the world for the first time since Harry Truman was president in 1952. We were the world's leading exporter of oil and gas. We had more exports than imports. We had more production than consumption. We were sitting pretty. What every president is Richard Nixon claimed they were going to achieve American energy independence actually happened under Donald Trump. And COVID lockdowns came and pulled the plug on everything. Biden came in and further, you can't say he pulled the plug. He poured the cement upon everything and buried American energy, whereas now their intentionally creating energy shortages. This isn't a side effect. Oh, these energy restrictions. This is a feature of the Green New Deal style, great reset policies upon which they're imposing. And the real villains obviously is China.

John Solomon: Biden Knew About & Instigated the Mar-a-Lago Raid

"But John Solomon has a stunning story up. Now, early on, if you remember, after the raid, the FBI raid, the guns drawn raid at Mar-a-Lago, just after that, President Biden, The White House, was asked about their about their involvement. And The White House emphatically denied that Joe Biden knew anything about it. Which quite frankly was believable because Biden doesn't even know what day of the week it is. But now we have information thanks to the reporting of John Solomon over just the news dot com that not only did Joe Biden know about the investigation, Joe Biden actually instigated the investigation that led to the guns drawn raid on Mar-a-Lago. So what does that mean that means this is a big deal everybody because it means that the Biden administration and specifically the president of the United States has weaponized the FBI to target his political enemies. That's way worse than what led to Richard Nixon and Watergate. Way worse. And Richard Nixon was not allowed to remain in office. So just that he was dot com has really found the smoking gun here. And according to their reporting, The White House facilitated the entire criminal probe against president Trump. This is a big deal, ladies and gentlemen. Now, the mainstream media, they're not going to cover this. I suspect not even Fox News is going to jump into this terribly much. But they should, because ultimately, this is the issue of the day.

Resolved: We Must Disband the FBI With Ted Cruz

"Our theme today is resolved the disgraced FBI must be defunded and disbanded. What do you think? I think it needs a serious reorganization. It is disgraceful what has happened to the FBI and the Department of Justice and I think this really started under Barack Obama. We saw the deep politicization of the Department of Justice and FBI under Obama and it metastasized when Trump was president and all of those Obama hard partisans had burrowed into senior career positions and from those positions from the deep state. They waged war on president Trump and now under Joe Biden. It's gotten even worse. And I think the crowning disgrace for DoJ and the FBI was 40 FBI agents sent in to raid president Trump's home in Mar-a-Lago. It was nakedly partisan and political. And I got to say, you know, you think back to what Richard Nixon tried to do to the Department of Justice and the federal government, Barack Obama and Joe Biden have succeeded in doing, which is turning them into political and partisan weapons to target their enemies.

If you don't mind, because not everybody, we have 3 million plus lists. There's not everybody is assigned knowledge and understands exactly the significance of what happened recently in Asia. So if I may, please endow me, what is Taiwan, how was it formed, and why does it matter? Let's start with the basics with regards to Pelosi's recent trip. When the communists won the Chinese Civil War in 1947. The nationalist forces under Shanghai shek, our Friends, to camped en masse to the little island of then called formosa or Taiwan. And established an alternative Chinese state, the republic of China. All the international agreements agreed that this island was part of China the same way say Puerto Rico is part of the United States. However, they had opposing governments in the stood each other off. Now, in 1972, when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger went to China and began the process of restoring diplomatic relations, they agreed that Taiwan and China were part of the same country and then it was up to the Chinese to the two sides to work out what their common future was without American interference. That was the Shanghai communique of 1972. And I spoke to one of the original members of the Nixon delegation who helped draft that communique. In 1972, and I was told that Pelosi's visit to China was a really terrible idea because it violated the spirit of the agreement. Why

"So you know that is another side of nixon The relationship with his family which is often not captured in books about watergate or biographies of nixon So in what ways are we still living in the shadow of of watergate. By thank you can draw a direct line from woodgate to the various scandals of the nixon presidency. I think this obviously vietnam was very divisive. Time in american history and it really divided the country into you know the antiwar movement and The people who now describe themselves or sarah palin describe themselves as real americans real america and You know that dates back. That idea of real america as a political construct dates back to the nixon era. So i see this as a You know there's a direct link there. I mean many of the abuses that took place in the watergate. Era were repeated during the trump period The interference with the justice department for example is is is one example and nixon was appealing to the same kind of portion of the electorate that trump later appeal to So there definitely There's definitely a connection though. I think however in a trump nixon two very different people. Nixon had a much greater sense of american history. And was you know much more serious thinker than trump particularly on foreign policy. So in some ways you know Karl marx wrote once that history repeats itself. The first time has tragedy. The second time is false and I think you know that might be a political nixon and trump in some ways. So you have written the trilogy on the cold war The big turning points. And then now you've written on the turning point of watergate and the role that had an american history. Is there any future projects that you're eyeing turning points that might end up being a new book or a trilogy. Well it's hard to get as close up to a major decision maker as we can get to nixon ident- in it's hard to repeat that So certainly. I'm more interested in historical subjects than Topical ones. Because i think it takes forty or fifty years for all the materials to come out into right. You know what of cool to second draft of history. So i'm You know not interested in writing another book about donald trump that lots of books about being written about donald trump and They're all going to depend on second hand accounts rather than on firsthand accounts because no other president including donald trump is going to tape himself way. Nixon says that rules out. You know topical Current day topics as a subject for book I can see myself writing a book about you know. Some other historical book preps about the entire cold war Rather than just an episode in the code will great. Well michael dobbs. The book is called cancer. Nixon and watergate an american tragedy. It came out in may of this year. So it's still relatively hot off the presses. But mr dobbs thank you so much for being on our show and sharing your insights about this very important moment in american history. Well thank you so much enjoyed your show and It's been a great conversation. Thanks.

"A man called mark felt who Had his own reasons for leaking to journalist. Bob woodward wasn't the only journalists that mark felt was talking to and So he used to have clandestine meetings. With woodward throughout the Throughout the watergate period at they would meet in a parking garage in arlington virginia in the middle of the night. Two o'clock three o'clock in the morning so mark felt was really leading a double life during the day. He was his ultra-efficient. Fbi official in charge. Pretty much of the watergate investigation.

A president lives his day What's it like being president to understand this from the inside rather from the outside as journalists and historians. They usually compelled to do so. We can follow nixon around the white house day by day minute by minute. Z goes from His secret hideaway. In the executive office building across the street to the oval office and then goes up to the his favourite room in the white house which that which was actually the lincoln sitting room on the second floor of the residence We can follow them around and we can listen to him. You know getting angry with his aides Having loving conversations with his daughters we can appreciate the full complexity of the man and all the contradictions. We can use like being a fly on the wall actually or perhaps a better expression would be a bug in his desk because that's where the bugs were actually planted and knew that is unique because we see the president's as he really is rather than as somebody you rather than through the eyes of somebody else..

"Satan thinking he was never on the point of pressing a nuclear button So nixon famously had a not a great relationship with the media and this was not too long after the kennedy years after president. Franklin roosevelt who The media they had a very good relationship and there were things that they actually hid from the american people about those president. So how did those relationships compare and how did it change so quickly as you said both. Fdr and john kennedy examples of presidents. Who on the whole had very good relationships with the media and were able to charm and manipulate the media and nixon certainly resented that because he wasn't a charismatic person he was rather awkward. He wanted to control everything And he'd had a very rocky relationship with the media and You know he takes it out on them. He thinks that he identifies the media with his political enemies and Is constantly thinking of reasons to Screw them bastards. In the media's he puts it Particularly once watergate gets going Very antagonistic relationship with the washington. Post where i used to work by the way And he's scheming with chuck colson Actually this is part of the first scene of the book. He scheming to drive down the price of the washington post which has just gone public in. He wants to punish the washington post for its woodgate coverage so this goes up and down and his fairly sort of you know pretty much background noise. He's Throughout his presidency and particularly the period that i'm describing So you mentioned the washington post deep throat. During this time was leaking information to them deep throat becoming basically part of the american political lexicon so what did you learn about deep throat. Mark felt the fbi number two and his motivation for leaking information to the post. Right the phrase deep throat came from a pornographic movie that was popular at the time. Starring linda lovelace so when Bob woodward was investigating woodgate. He had a secret sauce. The identity of whom he refused to disclose even though even to his own editors so they christened him deep throat. You know the man who could never be named and many years later it turned out that deep throat was the deputy director of the fbi. Aman cooled mark felt who Had his own reasons for leaking to john lewis. Bob woodward wasn't the only journalists that Mark felt was talking to And so he used to have planned to steam meetings with would throughout the Throughout the woodgate period. They would meet in a parking garage in arlington virginia in the middle of the night. Two o'clock three o'clock in the morning so mark felt was really leading a double life During the day he was his ultra-efficient. Fbi official in charge. Pretty much of the watergate investigation.

"Richard is as much as anything a portrait of a court of the ruler and his coaches. Who of course include henry kissinger chuck colson john dean Spiral near the vice president You know the whole gang of them and they're all different people in they interact with nixon in different ways. How would you characterize his relationship with henry kissinger and what would what was the impact of that relationship on watergate. Well it's interesting because kissing was nixon's national security adviser and they you know were a team but they also rivals because nixon suspected Largely correctly of kissinger playing a double game. of leaking to the press leaking to nixon's enemies and with the goal of making kissing jessica himself. Look more look smarter And being the architect of some of these Some of the big foreign policy initiatives including the opening to china A nixon didn't want kissinger to get all the credit. And when john lewis gave him the credit for some of these foreign policy initiatives. Nixon was furious so that was actually one of nixon's main motivations in installing this tape-recording system that he would be able to show when he came to write his memoirs that He had been the driver of from policy. Initiatives not henry kissinger kissinger for his part was very adept. flat era and psychic fant. He would play on nixon's vanity and tell nixon that he was the greatest president ever and that he this watergate thing would be forgotten in history and nixon would go down in history as a great foreign policy. President nixon liked that he liked to be flooded but at the same time he was in a pretty much aware of the game that kissinger was playing and The some would. I find hilarious moments on the tapes when nixon is running down kissinger and even one moment when the talking about going off to camp david for the weekend and dixon says we'll take kissinger along with us and then a couple of minutes later says no no. Henry's too much of a pain in the us. We won't take it so kissinger was disinvited. But you know that reflects this raw strange relationship between the two of them. That's probably one of the milder things that that's documented as far as nixon talking about somebody. Yeah he was certainly an equal opportunity. insult of people And he you know uses a lot of swear words and He typically refers to the media for example a sons of bitches bitches bastards son of a bitches you know just a typical right expression for nixon right now. You alluded to vice president. Spiro agnew People remember him as the first vice president to resign. What was their relationship like. And there was talk of agnew becoming president potentially with the watergate scandal so that play out for nixon well. Nixon often talked about agnew his best insurance policy against assassination and later against resignation because he calculated that wants people figured out that if they got rid of nixon they would get agnew That would Restrain them and so you know they sometimes He sometimes talks about his resignation. And then he his own resignation and then he says to one of his aides. You won't act you and the aide says of course we don't want to agnew and so that is always the reason for nixon himself to stay on. Now agnew himself was facing his own troubles during this period..

"He identified with that silent majority even before his political career. It sounds like think it began as personal. Of course then it became political because he saw it as a way of making his political career and You know he from very his first. Political campaign was An anti he. flung anticommunist epithets that his democratic opponent. So he was very savvy in using that and exploiting those political ideological divisions we were in the middle of the cold war period To make a successful political career so nixon wins reelection. Nineteen seventy to one of the greatest landslides in american history. Forty nine out of fifty states. Your book focuses on the first one hundred days after his second inauguration. So what's so pivotal about that time. Well i think that. I chose that period. Because you know although the subtitle of the book is nixon and watergate. The real story is the unraveling of the american presidency or of one american president and the way in which you know in a very short space of time a politician can go from being top of the world reelected by one of the largest if not the largest popular vote margin in american history to struggling for his political life and that happened to nixon in those first hundred days after his second inaugural site begin with the night of his second inaugural actually will the night preceding his second inaugural and i go all the way through to the end of april nineteen seventy-three when he's forced to part company with his two closest aides. John ehrlichman and bob haldeman Which is something as painful to him as the loss of his two brothers from tobacco losses while he was still a young man. I mean it was a personal crisis for nixon and this is really a psychodrama a personal and political psychodrama that nixon went through. But i actually then take the story up until july. One thousand nine hundred seventy three which follows those early congressional hearings and most important the revelation of his secret taping system and his decision not to destroy the tapes. He could have destroyed the tapes. I think when he took the decision not to destroy the tapes although he didn't realize realize it he was sealing fate as president because when those tapes became public then It was discovered that he had himself ordered the cover up woodgate and he was forced to resign as president. But that's a different phase that's sort of political constitutional legal face of the watergate crisis and i was interested in the personal psychodrama of the watergate. Crisis and the unraveling of the nixon presidency. In fact the unmaking of the president was which is what. I was interested in there being. You know a series of books by teddy white. The called the making of the president and i was interested in the unmaking of the president. So could you take us into that decision to not get rid of the tapes to not dispose of them. What was how did that psycho drama play out. Nixon's mind over that decision right. But this is july of one. Nineteen seventy-three Nixon thinks that he can completely control the tapes And that they all his personal property and he can do whatever he wants with them and he his intention was that he would use them for his memoirs and prep league them selectively to bolster his own case so that is his mindset his aide..

They got even less sleep than i did. Millions of americans in this past week have seen more of china than i did. Consequently tonight i would like to talk to you. Not about what we saw but about what we did some up the results of the trip and put it in perspective. When i announced this trip last july i described it as a journey for peace. In the last thirty years americans have in three different wars off by the hundreds of thousands to fight and some died in asia and in the pacific one of the central motives behind my journey. The china was to prevent that from happening a fourth time to another generation of america. Because i've often said peace means more than the mirror absence war. In a technical sense we were at peace with the people's republic of china before this trip but a gulf of almost twelve thousand miles and twenty two years of non-communication and hostility separated the united states of america from the seven hundred fifty million people who live in the people's republic of china. And that's one of all the people in the world. As a result of this trip we have started the long process of building a bridge across that goal. And even now we have something better than the mere absence of war. Not only have. We completed a week of intensive talks at the highest levels. We have set up a procedure whereby week and continue to have discussions in the future. We have demonstrated that nations with very deep and fundamental differences can learn to discuss those differences calmly rationally and frankly without compromising their principles. This is the basis of a structure for peace where we can talk about differences rather than fight about them. The primary goal of this trip was to reestablish communication with the people's republic of china after a generation of us still. We achieved that goal. Let me turn out to our joint communicate. We did not bring back any written or unwritten agreements that will guarantee peace in our time. We did not bring home any magic formula. Which will make unnecessary. They efforts of the american people to continue to maintain the strength so that we can continue to be free. We made some necessary and important beginnings however in several areas we entered into agreements to expand cultural educational and journalistic context between the chinese. And the american people. We agreed to work. To begin and broaden trade between our two countries we have agreed that the communications that have now been established between our governments will be strengthened and expanded most important. We have agreed on some rules of international conduct which will reduce the risk of confrontation and war in asia and the pacific. We agreed that we are opposed the domination of the pacific area by eight one power. We agree that international dispute should be settled without the use of a threat of force and we agreed that we are prepared to apply this principle to our mutual relations..

"In february nineteen seventy-two president. Richard m nixon shocked the world when he traveled to the people's republic of china remember china had been closed off for over two decades from the rest of the world in many saw them as espousing a radical version of communism one. That was even more dangerous than that espoused. By the soviet union. Richard nixon had risen to the presidency with a reputation as a stern anti-communist and yet he became the first american president to visit the people's republic of china. It was a historic moment. As the leader of the world's most powerful capitalist democratic country met mao zedong the communist dictator of the most populous country in the world by this time the former anti-communist firebrand richard nixon. now saw himself as a statesman. who would usher in a new era of peace. He had said in his first inaugural address that the greatest title that history could bestow was that of peacemaker and when richard nixon returned from the people's republic of china he believed that he had attained that very title. In this speech. Richard nixon had just returned from china and arrived at andrews air force base and was greeted by a crowd and vice president spiro. Agnew he is at the peak of his diplomatic powers and at the pinnacle of his presidency. As you listen to the speech think about how president richard. Nixon believed that he was ushering a new age of peace and a new foreign policy for the united states one based on realism and coexistence with the communist powers. Many of america's allies in the region like taiwan and japan were concerned that president nixon's opening to china would mean a reduced commitment from the united states. Listen to how. President nixon tries to assuage their fears. And reinforce america's commitment to its allies and also listened to the optimism about the new relations between the united states and china. I can't help but thinking about modern day developments with china and how these remarks look in hindsight with what's happened between the united states and china in recent years. Enjoy the show.

"richard nixon" Discussed on This American President

"Think one of the problems with regard to what we call the watergate. This because why. You didn't say that. I will imply that a question was raised that despite some of the things that i had done that they worthwhile. deserves support that they felt that on this matter that i have not handled properly And they were right. I screwed it up. And i made the price. Richard nixon spent his remaining years rehabilitating his image sometimes giving interviews often writing books and articles he maintained relationships with those in power in washington including whoever happened to be president at the time offering advice to anyone who would listen. Many americans continued to hate nixon but many others considered him a valuable source of foreign policy knowledge. He suffered a severe stroke on april eighteenth. Nineteen ninety four and he died four days later at the age of eighty. One as i said at the start of this series richard. Nixon remains one of the least popular presidents in american history. Despite what many considered to be monumental accomplishments he is remembered primarily for the watergate scandal and for being the first and only president to resign. Nixon had spent years carefully cultivating an image as a wise and shrewd statesman. Despite all of these efforts for many the last thing image of nixon is of a sneering petty vindictive ogre of a man one who was lonely insecure corrupt and untrustworthy. Some historians have defended. Nixon claiming that watergate should not overwhelm consideration of all of his accomplishments but nixon's policies also sparked controversy. Critics point to the human cost of nixon. Kissinger's realist foreign policy. They point to the expansion of the vietnam war into cambodia. The massive bombings the use of covert operations the secrecy that centralized all foreign policy into just two. Men's hands many claim that nixon unnecessarily prolonged via not more leading to eighteen thousand combat deaths critics on both the left and the right attack his detente policies. Saying that he worked with totalitarian tyrants in moscow and beijing while ignoring the human rights of those they oppressed. Is this a fair appraisal of richard nixon. When nixon died in nineteen ninety-four then president. Bill clinton eulogized him saying quote me the day of judging president nixon on anything less than his entire life and career come to a close if we use that standard we can say that there is some truth to the stereotype of who nixon was many of nixon's as and friends affirm that he was a socially awkward lonely and bitter man but they often affirm his brilliance as well and is immense determination. Politics is one of the most social professions out there. It's remarkable that such a socially awkward man reached its pinnacle and is a testament to his skills as a strategist and when we look at his presidency. We must accept at the least that he took office during one of the most difficult times in american history as i said earlier america half a million troops stuck in one of the most unpopular wars. It had ever been involved in. The social fabric of the country was coming apart. America face new challenges abroad as it found itself overstretched overextended and other nations. Both friend and foe were catching up in competing against it successfully. Let's not pretend that. Johnson left nixon with anything less than a very difficult situation. Nixon does have his supporters surprisingly on both the left and the right in fact his nineteen seventy two democratic opponent. george mcgovern said that aside from nixon's vietnam policies. He was very successful president. Nixon fans lot his opening to china and his arms agreements with the soviet union as key to reducing tensions in the cold war in china nixon is remembered fondly by many perhaps more so than in the united states for his pragmatic policies that led to a new relationship between beijing and washington given the reduced leverage. The united states had when nixon entered office due to the war internal divisions and greater competition abroad. It is remarkable that nixon and kissinger accomplished as much as they did whether one agrees with their moves toward the soviet union and china. They did take a great deal of initiative and it did have some of their intended effect. The north vietnamese and the soviets were both alarmed and nixon's china and that provided the united states. Some measure of leverage critics like ronald. Reagan argued the dayton actually achieved nothing and only emboldened the soviets and the chinese to continue with their oppression. There is validity to this argument. But i think if there's something positive to say about nixon's detente. It can be said that if it was a pragmatic foreign policy based on cold. Unsentimental calculated interest. At least it wasn't based on a naive view of the world. Good intentions mixed with naievety and foreign policy can be disastrous. Especially when dealing with aggressors as the appeasers of hitler learn nixon understood the idea of maximizing his leverage whether it was through his geopolitical chess move into china or through the use of massive strategic bombings and the fact remains that while eisenhower kennedy and johnson all wished to arrive at some level of detente with the soviets it was nixon who finally achieved it. It was nixon who was the first president design a strategic arms limitation. Deal with the soviets. There will always be questions about the human cost of nixon's policies especially when it to his bombing of cambodia or his acceptance of pakistani atrocities in bangladesh. Critics will also question whether the massive bombs vietnam during operation linebacker. One two were justified given the civilian deaths. I do think it needs to be said that. In the case of vietnam. Nixon was dealing with an intransigent regime. That had the upper hand had no had little incentive to cape to nixon's demands since the war was becoming unpopular in the united states nixon filled. He had no alternative other than withdrawing troops as a way to cut losses. That as he did so this convinced the north vietnamese to wait out on america's inevitable departure it was a tough position to be in and he felt massive bombings were the best way to maintain american leverage over the whole situation and when it comes to cambodia it is a fact that the north vietnamese were using the country as a proxy. Unfortunately for cambodia the situation would soon destabilise ultimately leading to the rise of the communists commercial rouge party which would slaughter large percentage of the population. Nixon's critics blame him for. This is well arguing. That the bombings in cambodia destablize the country and alienated the population. Pushing them into the arms of the communist regime is this fair. I can't claim to be an expert on cambodian history. But i do think that people forget that ultimately it was the communists that took over cambodia and implemented the kamerhe rouge-government regardless of what nixon did. It's not clear to me that if america refrained from action and allowed the north vietnamese to use cambodia as a proxy that the communist wouldn't have tried to take cambodia over eventually and commit the atrocities that they did in nixon. Supporters have argued that at least nixon tried to fight the communists in cambodia and that it was his political opponents who prevented him or his successor. Gerald ford from being able to intervene to stop the cameroon takeover. Nixon himself weighed in on the fall of southeast asia to the communists in his retirement again in oxford in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight and again. You'll hear the protesters in the background. I would not want to leave the impression that i remain in office that i could have avoided the follow vietnam because that obviously would lead to the conclusion that president ford could have done something that would have avoided that. Let me say that. Had the congress acceded to president porridge requests for additional funds for military assistance to the government of south vietnam vietnam at the event he also justified the incursion into cambodia because the leader of cambodia had invited the united states in an north vietnamese forces their re using the country to attack. American soldiers cambodia. At one thousand nine hundred seventy cambodia was an area where there was a whole group of sanctuary so called in which north vietnamese and viet cong troops were stationed. There were no cambodians. Whatever their she coma new. I met him back at fifty three when he was still playing the violin but in any event at told one of our representatives that as far as he was concerned he didn't care what we did in that part of cambodia because no cambodians were there and he liked to get the north vietnamese out of his country. Now what was happening is they. Were in that part of the country and then they would come across the border into vietnam and they were killing americans and our south vietnamese allies by the tens of thousands and then they go back over. We couldn't even shoot. We do anything also. In that spring april they were sending great of troops into cambodia preparing for what is called the tet offensive that year shortly after town at. We not struck them then. We would have had enormous casualties. So what would we do. Let them have this privilege sanctuary or go in there. Now let me. Just add one other point. Let me talk about invading cambodia. May i ask in world war two. When eisenhower ordered than landing carmody was that invading france know the purpose of that was the destroy. The german armies that were occupying france. And he was right to do it. We went into cambodia. We weren't invading cambodia. She looked at an object to it. We were going there for the purpose of blending offensive. That would have killed american men. I do it again. I wish i'd done.

"On july twenty fourth nineteen sixty nine neil armstrong and buzz aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon during their time walking on the surface which only lasted about two and a half hours. They received a phone call from the president of the united states. Richard nixon for purposes. That will soon become obvious. I'd like to play the entire clip free now. And don't worry it's not very long kneeland is talking to you by telephone from the oval room house and this certainly has to be the most historic telephone. Call ever made from the white house. I just can't tell you how proud we all are what you have done for. Every american this has to be proudest day of our lives and for people all over the world. I am sure that they to join with americans and recognizing what an immense speak. This is because of what you have done. The heavens have become a part of man's world and as you talk to us from the sea of tranquility it inspires us to redouble our efforts to bring peace and tranquility to earth for one priceless moment and the whole history of man. All the people on this earth are truly one one in their pride in what you have done and one in our prayers that you will return safely to earth. The call caused some controversy. People objected to using the moment to put the emphasis on a political leader. Democrats were upset. Because nixon had only been president a few months and most of the apollo program had been developed under the kennedy and johnson administrations nonetheless. The controversy was rather minor and soon forgotten. The speech however wasn't the only speech that was prepared in the lead up to apollo eleven the nixon administration was thinking about what they say in their phone call to the astronauts nixon speechwriter. William safire was contacted by an astronaut and was warned about something that they should be prepared for in a new york times article nineteen eighty-nine where sapphire was a columnist for years. He wrote quote. Frank borman our liaison with the astronauts brought the image making.

"But they didn't have to put up with what they put up with. I mean, it was so far beyond the pale that They were given a media angle exam the likes of which has never been seen, including by Richard Nixon. And Ronaldo's Magnus. And in all of this noise I won't forget, nor should you the people the good that was done. Under the constant incoming fire and criticism he did put America first. He put belief in people that our country is special and worth building up. First and he didn't He didn't He didn't waste any time. On cutting down America or saying we need to be equalized with the rest of the world. He renewed people's belief That they can better themselves. Simply because of where they live. He renewed people's belief. And the entrepreneurial spirit that anybody this is the thing anybody in this country And overcome odds. Anybody. You don't have to be born elite in this country. Now we're trending in that direction. The past four years. You didn't have to be you can you can Overcome everything. And this is what Trump demonstrated illustrated. It was one of the principal primary conservative tenants. Whether he knew he was doing it or not. I don't know, but he did it. He hung in with it..
