Watergate's Real Legacy

"Deep Throat" was the mythical source for the Mainstream Media's coverage of Watergate, and the man tagged as Deep Throat passed away recently. The source's name derived from a porn movie that was popular at the time. But the true legacy of Watergate went beyond the destruction of the Nixon Administration; it went into the real beginning of the cult of the "heroic" reporter.

A great deal about Watergate remains shrouded in liberal distortion, and it may never be fully removed, for hatred of the Nixon Administration even surpassed the absurd hatred of the W. Bush decade. Yet eliminating the shroud will remain necessary to reveal the truth about what happened and more importantly what did not happen.

The NY Times Coup In Baghdad

The New York Times gets it wrong again? SAY IT AIN'T SO, RUSS BRALEY!!! SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!

That Iraq coup attempt you may have read about is like Monty Python's mongoose compared to a monsoon - it isn't.

Retiring The Bailout

An interesting alternative to a federal bailout is presented here.

The Minnesota "Recount"

From November 18:

By now it should be known that Minnesota's Senate race is undergoing a "recount" to determine if former comedian Al Franken - by all accounts a detestible excuse for a person - becomes a US Senator. The recount is happening because of vote-rigging in favor of Franken, and this examination of the phony recount notes the role of leftist financier George Soros, who is to the Left what billionaires are to drug dealers - accomplices in murder.

UPDATE: The recount shows Franken-Stein's gap at 303, but Franken claims to be leading by 22 votes, a claim unbelievable on its face.

UPDATE #2: It would appear the election is being stolen for Franken.

UPDATE #3: Is Franken-stein trailing by just two votes?

Where Private Initiative Can Help With Deficits

Check these two ideas for the government to pay off deficits. Selling government land to private owners is especially interesting with so much land going unused because government owns it.

Economic Illiteracy Run Amok

The bailout of GM Ford & Chrysler has serious problems to it - namely Congressional requirements to build "green" cars despite their worthlessness. Meanwhile the housing crunch and economic illiteracy within gets a look here.

Illinois Corruption As Usual

The governor of Illinois gets indicted for corruption?


Actually this situation involving Rod Blagojevich is insane even by the standards of Illinois political corruption, as he sought to sell everything he could and shake down anyone he could - even a children's hospital - for money. And it involved people such as Tony Rezko, one of Barack Obama's prime financiers (who it would seem helped put Blagojevich in jail) and even The Man On The Way Up himself may have some role with Blagojevich, especially as this October 30, 2008 Chicago Tribune piece notes - also worth checking is this excerpt from Roll Call.
