“Deep Throat” in the Watergate scandal was Mark Felt, public domain

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

The other day a dear friend asked in response to something I had sent, “If the November election was stolen through widescale fraud and tampering, why has there been no ‘deep throat’ as had occurred in the Nixon Debacle?” 

Please read this article:  Yes, It Was a Stolen Election | Frontpagemag.  The article lists chapter and verse (and dollars and numbers) to show that the breadth and scope of the theft implicates so many powerful, big players in the very media that is supposed to inform the citizenry, but that rather than do so, it suppressed important stories that would have changed minds and maybe changed the outcome of the election.

After reading the article I think you’ll agree that the reason why this story hasn’t seen the pages of major newspapers, news magazines, and certainly not our television networks is that some folks and some organizations have become too powerful to mess with in today’s America. The media that gleefully and tirelessly worked to bring down Richard Nixon over a second-rate burglary at the Watergate is nowhere to be heard from.  One wonders why?  And one cannot help but conclude that either the story impacts the candidate of the wrong party, or that it is false.  The latter fails on the facts – yes, real facts, those pesky things with numbers and names and such.  But the prior reason remains in play.

The media hated Nixon for years, and he was the standard-bearer of the “wrong” party, according to the majority of the media.  So any dirt, no matter how trivial, was fair game and essential for the public to be made aware of.  Their efforts paid off and Nixon was driven from office.  This was the media’s golden moment and they’ve wanted another one like it ever since.  And, like Nixon, President Trump was from the “wrong” party and wanted to look under rugs and shake things up.  That would mean fewer “leakers” and “unnamed sources” and would seem to be a threat to the “intrepid” media here in the capital and the big money from the Coast that keeps them afloat.  Can’t have that.

I wish this weren’t my conclusion and that I am wrong as to purpose and motivation, but I lived through the Watergate thing and its aftermath and learned some things that seem to be recurring.  A lot of younger folks know little or nothing about this media “victory” (scalp) because it happened before their time.  But, as we learn over and over, history repeats.

Please, read the article.  We all need to be aware, and maybe, like me, even wary.

Happy New Year….

  1. Please look at aim4truth exposure of Pilgrims Society and the take over of our news media before WW1 inorder to lie the USA into it and its members who have held high gov office since before Woodrow Wilson. Trump probably first president in years not in their pocket.
