    From one anonymous insider to another, we look back at "Deep Throat" — the man who helped take down the Nixon administration from the inside.

    LBJ called them the n-word habitually, with no apologies.

    They all are the same, they promise you a rose garden, until they are in office then they do what the hell they want to.

    He's dead now and will be having to account for himself. He was a great supporter of the nra, which speaks volumes about his character, so no surprise really.

    Is anyone shocked??? Reagan falsely accused people that he hated in Hollywood of being communists to J Edgar Hoover and the FBI, to ruin their lives... There’s a whole docu about him and he fully sucked as a person... All that boyish nice guy shit was bullshit... Dude was president while he showed symptoms of Alzheimer’s, that’s also been documented...

    And that is why Ronald lived his last years out of his mind pissing on himself and throwing shit on the walls like monkeys do, and Richard died a disgraced liar and crook. 🤷🏽‍♀️

    Not surprised. For those with ears let them listen and for those with eyes let them see. These are their idols and now you can see where that subconscious racism is planted. With their own parents and own grandparents. Psychosis and tradition of hate and racism is strong.
