Happy “I Day,” Everybody!
This morning in the Whistleblower Newsroom, with Newsweek saying Trump’s North Korea Threat seeming eerily similar to Harry Truman’s Hiroshima Bombing Announcement In 1945, Hurley the Historian was telling Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane to make sure The Blower reminded readers that on today’s date in 1945, the second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, where 74,000 people died as a result of the attack, and effectively ended WWII.
Last year, on the 71st anniversary of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki, Time said the city’s mayor Tomihisa Taue pressed the international community to use its “collective wisdom” to rid the world of nuclear weapons, the Japan Times reported. “Now is the time for all of you to bring together as much of your collective wisdom as you possibly can, and act,” Taue said at the annual ceremony at Peace Park.

But then The Blower’s left-of-center political junkie we like to call “Cincy Dave” interrupted: There was another atomic bomb dropped on this date. If you aren’t old enough to remember (or too old to remember), it was the bomb that landed on the White House in 1974, ending the presidency of Richard Nixon.” After Nixon’s resignation, he was issued a pardon by his successor, Gerald Ford.
Kane agreed: Today was the only date any President ever actually resigned in disgrace, but these days unfortunately, Liberal Whackos in Congress who still can’t get over the results of the 2016 Elections, just can’t stop babbling their deluded nonsense about impeaching President Trump, while The Blower continues to count down the 1,182 more days until Trump’s Re-election on November 3, 2020.
Last year on I-Day, Cincy Dave explained: August 9, 1974 was the day Nixon finally resigned in the first-and-only successful impeachment of a president. (The Blower knows that he wasn’t technically impeached because the full House hadn’t voted yet, but the House Judiciary Committee did vote for a Bill of Impeachment, and passage was certain, as was conviction in the Senate.
Barry Goldwater (isn’t that a strange first name for a would-be president) had to tell Nixon the day before that it was all over, he was done and had to go. He could go easily (resign) or go hard (impeachment and conviction). He chose resignation. Although Tricky Dick declared for years that he was not a crook, everyone knew he was all along. He had presided over one of the most corrupt administrations in history (before Obama) and lied more than any other 20th Century president, with the possible exception of LBJ. Liberals have ever since celebrated “Impeachment Day” on August 9, when they no longer had Nixon to kick around anymore.
Ironically, Cincy Dave added, Nixon was more of a Liberal than any President since, Republican or DemocRAT, excepting that Black Guy Republicans hate so much. So much so that Nixon would probably be declared a RINO in today’s politics. He started the EPA and proposed other liberal programs such as Health Care Reform and Job Creation, although he also created the so-called Southern Strategy that has ruled Republican politics ever since.
And after 22 years of other, far worse, Republican Administrations (Ford 2, Reagan 8, Papa Bush 4, Dubya, 8 Total = 22), Liberals still miss Tricky Dick these days. They would much rather have him as president than the guy they won’t accept in the White House who’s dismantling Obama’s Legacy every day while Making America Great Again.
RIP Milhous, this is your day too!
