41 years ago today in 1975 American helicopters were landing on the roof of the American Embassy in Saigon South Vietnam, desperately trying to evacuate American personal as troops from North Vietnams regulars surrounded the city.

That was 7 years after President Lyndon Johnson had brokered a peace treaty between the Americans and their South Vietnam forces and North Vietnam. Negoiations that would be subverted for the political gains by Richard Nixon.

Richard Nixon WAS A TRAITOR, his treachery would result in the additional deaths of 40 thousand young American servicemen.

Nixon's own records show for certain that in 1968, as a presidential candidate, he ordered Anna Chennault, his liaison to the South Vietnam government, to persuade the leaders of South Vietnam to refuse a cease-fire being brokered by President Lyndon Johnson.

Nixon's sabotage of the Vietnam peace talks were confirmed by transcripts of FBI wiretaps. On November 2, 1968, LBJ received an FBI report saying Chernnault told the South Vietnamese ambassador that "she had received a message from her boss: saying the Vietnamese should "hold on, we are gonna win.' 'Nixon was able to get a series of messages to the Thieu South Vietnam government making it clear that a Nixon presidency would have different views on peace negotiations.'

The South Vietnamese did 'hold on,' the war proceeded killing another 40 thousand American boys. Nixon did win, changing forever the face of American politics—with the shadow of treason permanently embedded in its DNA.

Later it was revealed Henry Kissinger—then Johnson’s adviser on Vietnam peace talks—prior to the peace talks, secretly alerted Nixon’s staff that a truce was imminent. The double dealing treachery by Kissinger, who in 1973 Kissinger would be given the Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating the same settlement he helped sabotage in 1968.

The treason came in 1968 as the Vietnam War reached a critical turning point. President Lyndon Johnson was desperate for a truce between North and South Vietnam.

President Johnson was livid. He even called the Republican Senate Minority Leader, Everett Dirksen, to complain that “they (NIXON) oughtn’t be doing this. This is treason.”

“I know,” Dirksen’s said feebly.

Below the live conversation in which President Johnson calls out NIXON for TREASON.



41 YEARS AGO TODAY marks the end period in which NIXON COMMITTED TREASON

Exactly Zapdam! I'm reading David Talbots book right now, "The Devil's Chessboard". It's a review of the corrupt Dulles brother and the good ole USA Establishment/government. Corrupt then and now. And the wheels on the bus go round and round.

I have always been amazed that some of the worst humans in history have lived to ripe old age. You constantly hear stories of ex nazis still alive, concentration guards who committed crimes of inhumanity , but somehow they manage to live into their 80's and mid ninties and beyond.

In America such is the case, as George Bush Sr is 91, Henry Kissinger is 92, Ronald Reagan lived to 93. Nixon lived to 81, a lot longer than those 40 thousand American boys in Vietnam who died because of his treason.

I think your math is off on this, and the other similar post.

2016-1975 = 41 years

Those of us that lived through it remember it well. Probably why I do not trust the Government for anything. It kept me a lifetime left winger. Do not understand why not all. 450000 dead US Solidiers in Vietnam. Now they are a trading partner. Was it worth it?

There are a lot of bad things about Nixon not even mentioned here. However, the guy was not all bad, especially in relation to the Republican presidents that followed.

Noam Chomski accurately describes Nixon as " The last New Deal President". He gave us the EPA, Worker safety.... He was also likely the smartest president of the century.

Is there a better modern Republican POTUS? Maybe Reagan or one of the Bush's? Those guys all tried to undo Nixon's progressive achievements, were more damaging in changing the direction of the nation for the worst, and were just as treasonous.

I think Republicans should look up to the treasonous Nixon rather than the treasonous Reagan. Nixon was the least worst of the group. Given that politics is unfortunately always about the lesser of two evils, I think Nixon was the best of the rotten Republican apples.

"guy (NIXON) was not all bad," that is just an insanely ridiculous argument.

Hitler created millions of jobs in Germany ,put Germans to work , pulled Germany out of crushing economic depression, gave Germans pride again,he brought order to a waring fractionalized German political scene, build the Autobahn, the worlds first super highway, he ordered the design and manufacture of Germany's 'people car' the VW bug, he built massive projects that would enhance the German landscape, was responsible for some of the worlds leading medical advancements, was responsible for the first rocket program whose technology, would put Americans on the moon, whose legacy would allow man in 2016 to explore the universe, he built the luftwaffe the worlds most modern and advanced air force,technology that we use today, he developed submarine technology second to no one in the world, I could go on and on about the great achievements of Hitler , Germany in the mid to late 1930's was a showcase of modernism, if he had stopped there , he would have gone in history as perhaps the best leader Germany ever had, perhaps the world, BUT Hitler also created the first industrial style method for the mass extermination of a targeted people and he also plunged us all into a world war that would kill 60 million people, perhaps using your logic,you could say 'Hitler wasn't all that bad'.

Vietnam War ends April 30, 1975
Fr. Daniel Berrigan RIP April 30, 2016

Nixon didn't start his fascist ways with the late 60's treason. He was involved with Bush as VP to Eisenhower. It was Nixon and Bush Dyncorps, Hughes and Rockefeller who Ike was addressing concerning the build up of the Military Industrial Complex. First was to title the conflicts Police Actions to avoid Congress and non profit status. Korea and Vietnam as well as the cold war and drug war are all for profit. As Koch and ALEC are trying with max cap profit prison contracts. who ya gonna call if the people are silent or in denial just to beat the other side of the same fascist coin.

Hand picked politicians to legislate lies is obvious looking at the Ganjawar 45 years. Now its hitting the middle class with outsourcing jobs or TPP importing labor. Creating a worker pool large enough to kill off the Unions. Like the right to work for less states left with a choice to not work at all. I say eminent domain on all factories shut down to outsourcing. The workers know what to do. Addicted to fossil fools and still hiding from a natural Hemp alternative or Ganja over Fat Pharm chemicals. Both eliminating Big Ag poisons like those sprayed over the Bible Belt cotton crops aborting anti choice pre-babies.

Or wetting their collective pants at the thought of raising the minimum wage to a living wage. I prefer lowering the cost of living and hiring locally to grow and process Hemp alternatives while growers categorize strains to match symptoms as the dispensaries have been doing for 10 years without, nay in spite of government interference. Oh well, good thing it can't happen here.


Nixon fabricated the drug war as a means of cleaning the streets of minorities and nonconformists. Bush CIA was lurking behind every president since Truman. His entire career funded by his father Prescott laundering Hitlers money. Denialism has provided Neocons comfort since Krristol started it in the 60's. Bipartisan world bank corporatist with no allegiance to Americans. Watch if son#2 J.E.Boosh doesn't get the nod at a brokered convention.

Justifying Nixon's Neurosis because following presidents were psychotic is typical escapism from reality. Like so many things today. From the drug war to sabotaging low income housing projects or shutting down clinics. Like with Nixon creating a trillion dollar drug war on pure gossip, while being impeached. Headlines blasting like the OJ trial all about a two bit break in with little or no significance compared to treason on several counts never brought up by Woodstein and Bernwood. Not just Vietnam.

This is yet one more reason for the drug war. To justify free Bearcats in every copshop and militarized police kicking down stoner doors.

“Today, America would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all people of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the world government.”
- Henry Kissinger (Bilderburg Conference 1991 Evians, France)

Nixon lied to schedule Ganja #1

"You know, it's a funny thing, every one of the bastards that are out for legalizing marijuana is Jewish. What the Christ is the matter with the Jews, Bob?

"You're enough of a pro," Nixon tells Shafer, "to know that for you to come out with something that would run counter to what the Congress feels and what the country feels, and what we're planning to do, would make your commission just look bad as hell."
- Richard Milhouse Nixon

"Marijuana does not lead to physical dependency, although some evidence indicates that the heavy, long-term users may develop a psychological dependence on the drug"
The Shafer Commission of 1970

Why Do Democrats Defend Nixon's Drug War?

From Whom Did the Fascists Get Support?

Kudos for Adolph and Benito
Italian fascism and German Nazism had their admirers within the U.S. business community and the corporate-owned press. Bankers, publishers, and industrialists, including the likes of Henry Ford, traveled to Rome and Berlin to pay homage, receive medals, and strike profitable deals. Many did their utmost to advance the Nazi war effort, sharing military-industrial secrets and engaging in secret transactions with the Nazi government, even after the United States entered the war. During the 1920s and early 1930s, major publications like Fortune, the Wall Street Journal, Saturday Evening Post, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, and Christian Science Monitor hailed Mussolini as the man who rescued Italy from anarchy and radicalism. They spun rhapsodic fantasies of a resurrected Italy where poverty and exploitation had suddenly disappeared, where Reds had been vanquished, harmony reigned, and Blackshirts protected a "new democracy."

long read but totally worth it. Absolutely great post. That last part "If the people knew what we had done,
they would chase us down the street and lynch us."
-- George H.W. Bush to journalist Sarah McClendon,

If true ,that should in a just world, be enough to arrest these buggers and put them on trial.
