#1951: The Coup Against Richard Nixon and Today’s ‘Deep State’
[00:30] Biden Has ‘No Regrets’ About Stealing Classified Documents (13 minutes) Although Joe Biden insists that he has “no regrets” regarding how he handled classified documents, he is steadily losing support from the press. Barack Obama is clearly using this scandal to get rid of him. Tucker Carlson explained yesterday that focusing on this one crime instead of Biden’s other crimes allows the “deep state” to jettison him without incriminating anyone else—especially Barack Obama. [13:45] The Real Watergate Scandal (26 minutes) Richard Nixon was one of the most popular presidents ever elected. The CIA created the Watergate scandal to get rid of Nixon because he went after Communists in the government. The deep state’s power has grown so much since the 1970s that—in addition to getting rid of a sitting president—it can now change the outcome of national and state elections. [39:30] Wait on God (16 minutes) The book of Hebrews repeatedly exhorts Christians to patiently and confidently wait on God. If we trust God, we will be energized to step forward with confidence in our daily spiritual battles.

Haig's Coup: How Richard Nixon's Closest Aide Forced Him from Office
The Opperman Report
When General Alexander M. Haig Jr. returned to the White House on May 3, 1973, he found the Nixon administration in worse shape than he had imagined. President Richard Nixon, reelected in an overwhelming landslide just six months earlier, had accepted the resignations of his top aides—the chief of staff H. R. Haldeman and the domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman—just three days earlier.Haldeman and Ehrlichman had enforced the president’s will and protected him from his rivals and his worst instincts for four years. Without them, Nixon stood alone, backed by a staff that lacked gravitas and confidence as the Watergate scandal snowballed. Nixon needed a savior, someone who would lift his fortunes while keeping his White House from blowing apart. He hoped that savior would be his deputy national security adviser, Alexander Haig, whom he appointed chief of staff. But Haig’s goal was not to keep Nixon in office—it was to remove him.In Haig’s Coup, Ray Locker uses recently declassified documents to tell the true story of how Haig orchestrated Nixon’s demise, resignation, and subsequent pardon. A story of intrigues, cover-ups, and treachery, this incisive history shows how Haig engineered the “soft coup” that ended our long national nightmare and brought Watergate to an end.
So we come to Tricky Dick. Well known for a long time for being the stain on American presidential history - but is that deserved? Well, let's start with his pre watergates/presidential life shall we...
