Well, if you ever needed any convincing that Donald Trump is part of the swamp, you only need to look at the collaboration between Donald Trump and Bob Woodward.
If anyone is a member of the swamp, it is Bob Woodward.
Is Bob Woodward an independent journalist and author who makes a serious attempt to look at all sides of the issue?
Not in my opinion.
I think Bob Woodward is a fellow traveler with the CIA, and I think he’s been a fellow traveler for a long time.
He’s a Yale graduate who by pure chance happened into the Watergate controversy.
I suppose you can believe that fantasy if you want to, but I do not.
To me, and I suspect many others, the Watergate affair was a CIA operation. The burglars were CIA and CIA fellow travelers.
Bob Woodward worked at the Washington Post which has been long thought to be a CIA listening post.
Its editor, and so-called bastion of a free independent press, was Ben Bradlee whose best friends were James Jesus Angleton and Cord Meyer, two very top level guys in the CIA.
The three of them were big buddies around Georgetown.
Bradlee’s boyfriend friend was Richard Helms, another CIA head honcho.
Is it possible that Bob Woodward innocently walked into the Washington Post and knew nothing about the kind of place he was working at, that he knew nothing about his boss, Ben Bradlee?
I suppose it’s possible.
Hey, wasn’t Bob Woodward in naval intelligence prior to working at the Washington Post?
Why, yes, I think he was.
I’ll be fair here. There’s nothing wrong with working with the CIA if you believe that the CIA is a good institution, which, of course, it isn’t.
Plus, in those days, especially in the 50s and 60s, many journalists did work with the CIA. They thought it was their patriotic duty, which, of course, it wasn’t.
Many so-called journalists still feel this way.
When it comes to Watergate, it was Bob Woodward who had secret contact with Deep Throat.
Bob Woodward insisted that Deep Throat was one person, yet many respected researchers believe that Deep Throat is a composite.
Those respective researchers apparently feel that it isn’t possible for Deep Throat to be one particular person.
Years later, former FBI agent, Mark Felt, a former second-in-line at the FBI, who got passed over, and therefore felt scorned, stated that he was Deep Throat.
Woodward later confirmed that Deep Throat was indeed Mark Felt.
Main stream media dutifully fell in line, of course. Whenever you need main stream media to swallow some cock, they will be there.
Maybe they were Deep Throat.
Unfortunately, saying something doesn’t make it so.
Was Mark Felt Deep Throat?
I don’t think so. I don’t think Mark Felt would jeopardize his career, his pension and his standing by being disloyal. You don’t get to be a top person at the FBI by being a disgruntled rebel. It wasn’t in Mark Felt’s programming to not be a team player. And that programming doesn’t turn on a dime just because you get passed over.
Plus, would Mark Felt trust his life and career to a young upstart who he barely knew? Unlikely.
I also don’t buy into the argument that Mark Felt was aghast at what was going on in the Nixon White House. Mark Felt was a seasoned professional who had seen everything under the sun.
To believe that Mark Felt was appalled by Richard Nixon but not by Lyndon Johnson is a laughable stretch.
No, I think it’s more likely that Bob Woodward was fed all the information he needed by operatives who worked within the CIA. There was at least one of them rooting around the White House in 1972.
I believe the Watergate affair to be a CIA operation against Richard Nixon to punish him for ending the Vietnam war.
I believe that Bob Woodward was part of that operation.
In my opinion, Bob Woodward swims lovingly and profitably in the swamp, our hidden government, while posing as an independent journalist and author.
Did Donald Trump know or suspect this?
If he didn’t, then why is he President?
I think Donald Trump did know that Bob Woodward was part of the swamp, and I don’t think Donald Trump cares because Donald Trump is part of the swamp also.
Both of these guys have benefited off the swamp. Both of them have made a fortune off the swamp.
I don’t see the Woodward interview hurting Donald Trump at all. In fact I see it as energizing his base.
What we have here, in my opinion, is just another CIA operation.
The swamp and its evil creature, the CIA, don’t oppose Donald Trump at all. They like Donald Trump. Donald Trump is giving them everything they want.
Donald Trump is bankrupting the middle class. He continues to make them plenty of money on foreign wars. He’s wiping out individual private practice which is a threat to algorithmic healthcare courtesy of Palo Alto. He is keeping the coronavirus fear alive with his dog and pony show with Fauci. Remote learning which devastates children’s psychological development is in full force as are the idiotic methodologies of the face mask and the lockdown.
Donald Trump is prosecuting a Nazi’s dream where junk science is used lustily to achieve total control over the people so as to prosecute endless money-making war.
What’s to hate about that?
Now, if Donald Trump had done what he said he was going to do it might be a different story.
He said he was going to be a voice of the people. He said he was going to bring down healthcare insurance premiums. He implied that he would institute a competitive market place in healthcare. He suggested that he would stop the foreign wars. He made a strong case for using common sense in government.
Had he done any of that, he would have betrayed the swamp; and in that event, we would’ve seen quite a different interview from Bob Woodward.
