All the Obots who call us Birthers crazy think that a president would never lie ,
cover up, or do shady things. Noooo, a U.S. President WOULD NEVER
LIE ABOUT A PIECE OF PAPER. Here is a list of things that I have
read about. If people can think of other BIG LIES President have told
and their friends have helped them COVER UP, please add them.
On the morning of October 2, Mrs. Wilson found her husband
unconscious on the bathroom floor of their private White House
quarters bleeding from a cut on his head. Wilson had suffered a stroke
– a massive attack that left his left side paralyzed and impaired his
vision. She immediately summoned Dr. Grayson. Then the conspiracy
began. The two of them formed a bulwark between the invalid
President and the rest of the country, simultaneously shielding Wilson
from intrusion and hiding his condition from outsiders.
For seventeen months the enfeebled President lay in his bed on the
brink of death, barely able to write his own name. The outside world
knew none of this. All communication with the President went through
his wife. She entered the sick room with messages and emerged with
verbal instructions or the scrawl of a signature on a piece of paper.
Edith Wilson called the period her “stewardship.” Later, others called
her the first woman President. The Senate rejected the Treaty of
Versailles with its provision for the League. Although Wilson’s
health improved, he never fully recovered.
The nation was stunned when FDR died unexpectedly on April 12,
1945 — less than six months after being elected to a fourth term in
office. The death was unexpected because the president’s personal
physician, VADM Ross McIntire, whenever asked, had proclaimed
that FDR’s health was excellent. McIntire, an otolaryngologist and
then surgeon-general of the U.S. Navy, must have known FDR was
gravely ill — FDR’s physical decay was plainly evident even to
non-physicians in the final months . FDR must have known, too,
[More] and the FBI was interested in who among the public knew
about his condition at the time of the November 1944 election.
Given his ill health, why did FDR run for a fourth term? FDR told his
son he felt compelled to run because he had “to maintain a continuity
of command in a time of continuing crisis” . World War II was, after
all, still raging in 1944. Was FDR justified in this decision? If McIntire
was an accomplice in the deception, was he acting for a greater good?
Today, no one can precisely say how much McIntire knew and when
he knew it. FDR’s medical record, which was kept in a safe at
Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland, has been missing since the
president’s death. VADM McIntire was one of three people with access
to the safe.
John F. Kennedy:
Kennedy’s womanizing had, of course, always been a form of
amusement, but now it also gave him a release from unprecedented
daily tensions,” Dallek writes.
During a 1961 meeting with British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan,
he confided that he got headaches if he went three days without sex.
His mistresses included Pamela Turnure, Jackie’s press secretary;
Mary Pinchot Meyer, Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee’s sister-
in-law; two secretaries nicknamed Fiddle and Faddle, and mob moll
Judith Campbell Exner.
Then there was a 19-year-old “tall, slender, beautiful” White House
Her identity remained a secret until last week, but JFK came close to
having several other “other women” publicly named during his time in
office – including Ellen Rometsch, a suspected East German spy who
romped naked in the White House pool.
Late in July 1974, the House Judiciary Committee voted to impeach
Nixon on the grounds of obstruction of justice, abuse of power, and
refusal to obey a congressional subpoena ordering him to release
the tapes. On August 5, 1974, Nixon obeyed the Supreme Court
ruling and released the tapes. The tapes proved that Nixon had
authorized the cover-up as early as June 23, 1972. The Watergate
debacle came to an end on August 9, 1974, when Nixon became
the first president to resign from office..17
In his deposition for the Jones lawsuit, Clinton denied having
“sexual relations” with Lewinsky. Based on the evidence provided
by Tripp, a blue dress with Clinton’s semen, Starr concluded that this
sworn testimony was false and perjurious.
During the deposition, Clinton was asked “Have you ever had
sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky, as that term is defined
in DepositionExhibit 1, as modified by the Court?” The judge
ordered that Clintonbe given an opportunity to review the agreed
definition. Afterwards,based on the definition created by the
Independent Counsel’s Office,Clinton answered “I have never had
sexualrelations with MonicaLewinsky.” Clinton later stated that he
believed the agreed-upon definition of sexual relations excluded
his receiving oral sex.
President Clinton was held in contempt of court by judge Susan D.
Webber Wright. His license to practice law was suspended in
Arkansas and later by the United States Supreme Court. He
was also fined $90,000 for giving false testimony which was
paid by a fund raised for his legal expenses.
President George W. Bush has got a very serious problem. Before
asking Congress for a Joint Resolution authorizing the use of
American military forces in Iraq, he made a number of
unequivocal statements about the reason the United States
needed to pursue themost radical actions any nation can undertake
— acts of war against another nation.
Now it is clear that many of his statements appear to be false. In the
past, Bush’s White House has been very good at sweeping ugly issues
like this under the carpet and out of sight. But it is not clear that they
will be able to make the question of what happened to Saddam
Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction (WMD) go away — unless,
perhaps, they start another war.
So here we have U.S. presidents lying all over the place and people
covering up for them. But such a thing COULD JUST NEVER
HAPPEN today over ONE SINGLE LITTLE PIECE OF PAPER,
could it? I guess we are all just paranoid. (NOT!)
