Newsman leaves crucial detail out of burglary account

Somehow, Dan Rather is still able to find an audience despite his very public ouster from CBS in 2004 after reporting falsified and unsubstantiated information about President George W. Bush.

Of course, his audience has been decreased exponentially, but the holdover from a bygone generation of news anchors continues to exercise his First Amendment rights via his own virtually unwatched program and as a guest on other leftist news networks.

Appearing on the Rachel Maddow Show recently, Rather was able to reach an audience likely in double digits. Unsurprisingly, he used the opportunity to decry Republican administrations of yore.

As three major scandals converge on the White House, MSNBC remained true to form and the conversation between Maddow and Rather naturally navigated toward the topic of Richard Nixon.

Rather shared the personal account of a residential burglary he said was the work of  “the notorious plumbers’ operation,” referring to the group Nixon used to halt White House information leaks.

“It was a long time figuring out who did it,” he said, adding, “this became common during the Nixon administration.”

His nostalgia was uneventful by MSNBC standards, though one detail included in his autobiographical account of the story was suspiciously missing from his on air narrative. In his memoirs, Rather claimed he “did what any Texan would do,” describing that he “made sure the family was safe, then grabbed the shotgun.”

I must admit I’m surprised the detail about a gun even made it into his book, but he described the incident in detail through the written word. On camera, though, looking into the wild eyes of Rachel Maddow, Rather neglected to mention that he pointed a loaded and chambered shotgun at a group of what he later learned were GOP operatives.

Honestly, that might be the one target for which Maddow and her deranged audience feel gunfire is warranted.

Being Held for something we 'might' do?

Prolonged Detention.

Rachel Maddow addresses the President’s proposal to indefinitely detain persons who are threats to this country, because of something they “might” do.

I looked the video up because some say Al-Awlaki should not have been killed.
They are saying he should have gotten a trial.
 
Awlaki was placed on the CIA capture or kill list – he was involved in the underwear bomber’s activity among other detestable plans to recruit our own people and turn them against us with intent to bring our country to it’s knees, as well as murder her citizens.

I understand the fear of slippery slope, (declaring a person a threat and then “taking them out” without due process of law) but his were acts of war agains this nation.

Awlaki made himself a part of Al-Queda.

As for the slippery slope – the ability to detain a person since they are very likely to commit a crime against our nation – I regret to inform you, that the first few steps have already been tread upon it.  This video is two years old.

In it, President Obama proposes to construct a “legal regime” with congressional and judiciary oversights.
This means separate from our judicial system and military commissions.

His examples are in regards to those who are training in terrorist camps today.
Here is the information for anyone who wants it.
