MacWizard: Ishkur: So if this conspiracy is true, that means they're all true, right? Moonlanding, second gunman, tower 7, Roswell, Clinton body count, New World Order, the Fed, electric car, Illuminati, AIDS, crack cocaine, MK Ultra, Philadelphia Experiment, chemtrails, numbers stations, Dick Clark, bigfoot, HAARP, fluoride, the Trilateral Commission and the reverse vampires all framed Nixon with these tapes. Watergate was the distraction to let the IMF get away with their jew gold.We're through the looking glass, people.I know you're trolling and/or joking (and I know I'm gonna get flamed for this), but the definition of a conspiracy -- "an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act" -- seems to include an awful lot of political activity in general. Some dictionaries add "surreptitious" to the definition, which would encompass basically everything the CIA does.Discounting the use of a term due to some actual tinfoil hat misuses of it (as prevalent as they may be from time to time) creates an excuse to write off or ignore dangerous activity.The MAFIA was clearly a criminal conspiracy. Watergate was most certainly a wrongful act and, whether or not it falls under the definition of criminal, there were more than two people involved (several Nixon administration officials DID go to prison over it, which would seem to indicate it fell under the definition of criminal), which makes it a conspiracy. MKUltra was a real, documented program -- even if the extent of it may have been exaggerated, it still falls under the definition of a conspiracy as some wrongful acts were certainly intentionally committed.So if this conspiracy is true, that means they're all true, right?No, it doesn't. But that line of thought makes it so much easier to discount a real one in plain sight. Like Hoover did with the Mafia.
rogue49: Dick NixonDick CheneyDick ArmeyWhy am I seeing a pattern here?Is it a subconscious thing?
Kibbler: Nixon was vile in many ways, but not the only one to gladly use war for cheap political gain.
X-boxershorts: MFAWG: So a Presidential candidate shouldn't inform our surrogate states what they're going to do if elected?In public, for all eyes and ears, as a stated policy position, yes.But, this is not at all what Nixon did.
