Nixon Was Too a Crook - and a Traitor

When Richard Nixon proclaimed, "I am not a crook", howls of laughter could be heard from one  end of the nation to the other. But Nixon was more than a crook - he was an American traitor - worse than Benedict Arnold.
We have stressed that Nixon was not the perpetrator of the Watergate break-in, but as Len Colodny has demonstrated, he was the perpetrator of obstruction of justice in his battle to suborn false statements from the equally crooked John Dean concerning the Watergate affair and its immediate aftermath.
Nixon's association with organized labor and crime are legendary, constituents who formed a great part of his ruling coalition. Not only were the likes of Bebe Rebozo, Robert Vesco, and George Meany important Nixon supporters and financiers, but Prescott Bush and Jack Rubenstein, murderers of President Kennedy, also numbered among Nixon's supporters and cronies.
Nixon's start in crime came when he covered up the treason of Allen Dulles while the former was an officer in the Navy during World War 2. Nixon had uncovered reams of documentation demonstrating that Dulles was collaborating and trading with the enemy as a lawyer for the Harriman and Rockefeller interests. It is this cooperation with these 2 traitors which explains Nixon's meteoric rise to the White House in 1952 as the mass murderer Dwight Eisenhower's vice president, both of whom were creatures of the Rockefeller crime cabal.
Nixon's acts of treason were related to his cozy relationship to Japan's political elite and his cover-up of the massive war crimes and lootings of the Japanese in World War 2. In addition to covering for the barbarians, Nixon used them to enter the White House on his own accord.
During his vice presidential years, Nixon discovered an important secret regarding the massive Japanese plunder from the war. One of the funds established by the equally treasonous MacArthur was the M-Fund whose administrator was General William Frederick Marquat of MacArthur's Economic and Scientific Section, a fund which very quickly became a slush fund for covert political action including the rigging of Japanese elections in favor of what would become the Liberal Democratic Party.
By the late 1950s, when Nixon's interest grew in the subject, he arranged to transfer the fund - whose control was with the Japanese and CIA at that time - to Japan's prime minister Kishi Nobosuke in 1960 under the guise of negotiations of the Mutual Security Treaty. The value of the fund at that time has been estimated at 35 billion USD, an enormous amount of money in 1960. Not only did Nixon transfer the fund out of US control, he transferred it personally to Nobosuke - not to the Japanese government, in whose control the LDP ruled Japan as an absolute kleptocracy.
No one knows how much Nixon received in kickbacks, but at the moment, we believe that it was a huge sum even though he relied upon the likes of Rebozo and Abanalp for financial support. This could have been Nixon's way of poor mouthing to keep investigators off his treason money. On the other hand, we cannot discount the possibility that the monies returned to Nixon could have been much more modest.
In any event, the money was not quite enough to buy the 1960 election, so the crook had to wait 8 more years in order to return to the White House. However, the same M-Fund money, firmly controlled by Nobosuke, was used to assist Nixon in 1968 and 1972.
But Nixon's generosity with the Japanese Crime Syndicate did not end with the gift of the M-Fund. He returned the island of Okinawa to Japan in 1973 as a way showing even more fealty to the JCS and as a way to slap the faces of the American servicemen who suffered under the brutal assaults of the Japanese, to say nothing of the horrific sacrifices endured to conquer Okinawa.
Richard Allen, a national security advisor to Reagan, was puzzled by Nixon's unprompted offer to return Okinawa to the Japanese, but when he later learned of the Yamashita gold hoard and the various funds it spawned, he finally understood the quid pro quo.
Even after leaving the presidency, Sterling and Peggy Seagrave document that Nixon and Ford aides met to discuss monies from the Yamashita funds in 1975, indicating that Nixon indeed had a substantial interest in the M-Fund.
Clearly more research is required in this particular matter. One of the most puzzling aspects is why Nixon would turn over so much money for so little return. Not that the US presidency is a trifle, but 35 billion USD seems an excessive price to pay - even if it was someone else's money. Thus it seems most likely that Nixon received huge amounts of it in kickbacks, but if so, he seems to have had so little to show for it - again possibly a put-on.

In closing, one more act of criminality and treason deserves note, namely Nixon's involvement in the murder of John Kennedy. We have been unable to trace Nixon directly to the crime, but we do know that he sponsored Operation 40 while vice president, and that this group under George Bush was a key player in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963 in providing sniper support for the ambush which fatally trapped the president. Nixon also knew what the Bay of Pigs Thing was all about but didn't lift a finger to bring justice for the murder, but instead used it as a bargaining chip to coerce the CIA to cover-up its Watergate project over Richard Helms' incendiary objection. Helms was a crook too.

And that folks, was your Law and Order president.
