My Greatest President of Them All

Saturday–Beverly Hills

Another perfect day here. Blue skies. Slight breeze. No clouds. Temperatures in the mid-70s.

I’ve been blown to pieces by the truth that it’s President’s Weekend and almost no attention is being given to the greatest American President of the 20th century: Richard M. Nixon.

Here is a small slice of what he did: Saved the Jewish people from a second Holocaust, saved Israel from being annihilated by the USSR. Actually showed willingness to go to nuclear war to save the Jewish people in Israel. No one in the six-thousand-year history of the Jewish people has ever gone even remotely close to going to Defcon 2 to save the Jews. But Nixon did and for that he was toppled from office by a vicious, wildly false media coup led in large part by Jews.

This man was a saint. In Israel and only in Israel is he remembered as such.

Two: Opened up China to friendly but mutually respectful relations with the USA. By so doing, he caused the USSR to be surrounded by hostile Communist states. That encouraged the Soviet leadership to cry “No mas!” and end the Cold War. Now, to be sure, the whipped Biden leadership has started the Cold War again since no one is now afraid of the USA despite our immense military. But Nixon gave us about a 30-year window of peace through strength. No one has done it since.

Ended the war in Vietnam with a free South Vietnam. Of course, the Democrats in Congress soon threw that away but Nixon made a real plan for peace work.

Last for tonight, showed us through his wife and his fabulous daughters, what a truly heavenly family is.

I’ll write more about this in the future. I think you know this.
