Roberts, a former economic advisor to Ronald Reagan, has a new article up on his new website about disinformation in the media. Well worth a read:

I've also heard other political analysts mention that Watergate was an attempt to discredit Nixon by the military industrial complex because he wanted to end the Vietnam war and open relations with China. No money in that. And also it is known that Nixon despised the ultra rich (as characterized in "Frost/Nixon").

The hidden right wingers are trying to resurrect Nixon? Honey, I'll tell you this, that man was worse than most will ever know, and I was only a freshman lobbyist! His people ended my career and nearly my life.

We Need to Listen to the Founders and Stop the Forever War.

Just a little over a year ago during his speech at the National Defense University here in Washington, D.C., President Obama talked about winding down Bush’s War on Terror. But as American bombers continue to strike against ISIS in Iraq and now Syria, it now looks like the War on Terror will be with us for years to come. And that’s a really dangerous thing for our democracy.
