A Liberal Marines Progressive Perspective

Marines are defenders of the republic and the Constitution. That is our oath, that is our purpose, that is our calling. Many are Democrats. This is the journal of one such Marine. This leatherneck's progressive perspective is as follows...

"...Because Only If You've Been in the Deepest Valley Can You Ever Know How Magnificent It is to be on the Highest Mountain...": W. Mark Felt, an American Patriot, Comes Forward as "Deep Throat".
Posted by Hello
Wow, this is incredible. The news came down yesterday afternoon in dribs and drabs and then came crashing down like a ton of bricks when "Woodstein" and the 'Washington Post' confirmed...and took practically everyone by surprise. The news was as follows: W. Mark Felt, a retired FBI agent/official and the #2 man at the FBI during the Watergate imbroglio, came forward yesterday (before the world) and proclaimed that he was, in fact, the Executive branch insider known as "Deep Throat" who served as the main source of information for Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4598983.stm). Mr. Felt, now 91 years old, guided Woodward, Bernstein and their paper, the 'Washington Post', through the byzantine machinations that was the Nixon White House; and ultimately to a truth which culminated not only in the neutralizing of what White House legal counsel John Dean ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dean) referred to as a political "cancer" growing on the government, but also in the resignation of the 37th President of the United States. Again, this is absolutely incredible. The longest-running journalism mystery in American history came to an end yesterday afternoon when an elderly gentleman, now living with his college professor daughter and her children in the sleepy town of Santa Rosa, California opened the door to their home and entered legendom as he told a gaggle of press representatives that (in an earlier time) he was indeed the individual who helped save the Republic, in the dark alleys and underground garages of Washington, D.C. and the surrounding metropolitan area, from a political cancer that (if not checked) would have arguably destroyed the very essence of our constitutional government (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074119/). Now, as if on cue, the remaining Nixon loyalists and die-hards (you know the usual suspects, i.e., 'Nixonites' like Pat Buchanan, G. Gordon Liddy, Chuck Colson, Monica Crowley, etc., http://www.recordonline.com/archive/2005/06/01/deepthro.htm) all came out yesterday afternoon with their long-knives in hand in a sad and collective (and impotent, I might add) attempt to slice and dice this sweet-looking old man to ribbons; vis-a-vis obnoxiously declaring, with saliva sputtering from their snapping jaws, that he was either disloyal, dishonorable, a snake or some combination of all three. The funny thing was in their maniacal efforts to demonize Mr. Felt, they in fact were just making Nixon look more ugly, as well as, making the Watergate debacle stink even more. Their deluded efforts to lambaste and gut this American patriot reminded me of a saying we have in these parts: it's like mixing ice cream with cow shit, doesn't do much to the cow shit but it ruins the ice cream. Look, whatever they were trying to do, the only thing the pro-Nixon pundits DID DO yesterday in their grotesqueness (and probably as they'll continue to do, ad nauseum, as this story continues to burn brightly on the journalistic horizon) is show the world once again how self-deluded and Machiavellian Richard Nixon, his White House and his "loyal" disciples were at the time and continue to be to this very day. See, in the end, regardless of Mr. Felt's motives (and let's face it, in the political game hardly anybody's above reproach. Like the character Trip said in the movie 'Glory': "...we're all dirty, I mean ain't nobody clean...", http://movie-reviews.colossus.net/movies/g/glory.html), in his capacity as "Deep Throat", Mr. Felt provided an indispensible service to the nation that can never be truly appreciated nor repaid. Those fascist Republicans (to be fair, not all Republicans are fascists, but oh so many are...it's just ingrained in their psyches...the drive for the "consolidation of power", it's what makes them tick in other words) who get-off on jack boots and Sam Browne belts (you know the type...G. Gordon Liddy's kind of people), are all over the TV and radio talking about how Mr. Felt was disloyal this and disloyal that...disloyal?!? Be advised, Mr. Felt's first duty was NOT to Richard Nixon and the Republican establishment or even to his much beloved FBI. His first duty was to the Constitution and people of the United States. You see he, like so many others (including yours truly, http://www.apfn.org/apfn/oathofoffice.htm), swore an oath to defend this great Republic against all enemies both foreign and domestic...see this is a point of fact the "Gordon Liddy's of the world" conveniently forget. Tragically, Nixon (with all of his brilliance, talent and potential) in conjunction with his madcap insidiousness had , in fact, personally become the greatest threat to the very survival of the Republic since the formation of the Confederacy...a threat that had to be dealt with and arrested before its malignancy spread to every branch of government. Yes, there was conflict in Mr. Felt's heart, to be sure (he admits that, http://www.kron4.com/Global/story.asp?S=3411778); but, in the end, Mr. Felt made the right decision and because of this he has the undying thanks of a very, very grateful nation. Semper Fidelis

It's amazing how many people forget this simple truth. As Ray Mcgovern noted we are becoming more and more like the single party state that we fought for 50 years.
