What Ever Happened to the Days of Woodward and Bernstein?

A Few Words From Woodward And Bernstein - 1976 - Past Daily

Sort of gone by the wayside like the Days of Wine and Roses: a bygone era of innocence and simplicity, especially in our youth. Days when two hardworking reporters uncovered a story about one candidate for reelection for president breaking into the others national campaign office to plant bugs to record their activity. I think it was called Watergate. Doesn’t sound like much of a crime compared to these days, but it made frontpage news for months, caused a president to resign, and inspired a bestselling book and a blockbuster movie. Even launched a spinoff porn movie entitled Deep Throat. All this resulted from two inquisitive reporters for the Washington Post named Woodward and Bernstein.

But these days we get zilch from reporters. And even if we do get a breaking story that will blow the socks off of Americans like the New York Post printed on Hunter Biden, it gets squashed or buried by the main stream media and social media and totally ignored by the FBI.

What has happened to the inquisitive minds of the average American though? Have they become so complacent, so involved in their cell phones, so wrapped up in their own lives that they don’t even care about the government and media corruption going on all around them? Gregg Garrett of FOX News along with two other investigative reporters Solomon and Carter have broken stories all year long much like Woodward and Bernstein did, but they go nowhere. Why is that? Is it because their stories are against the Democrat Party? So if you’re a Democrat involved in crime, the media overlooks you as well as the FBI? Is this what it has come down to?

“The metonym Watergate came to encompass an array of clandestine and often illegal activities undertaken by members of the Nixon administration, including bugging the offices of political opponents and people of whom Nixon or his officials were suspicious; ordering investigations of activist groups and political figures; and using the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Internal Revenue Service as political weapons.[15] The use of the suffix “-gate” after an identifying term has since become synonymous with public scandal, especially political scandal.” Wikipedia.

Isn’t this exactly what has been happening to President Trump? Using the FBI, CIA, and NSA as political weapons against Trump? But no one cares. We all have our heads in the sand. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. But it’s all around us.

THE THREE MYSTIC MONKEYS

Three wise monkeys or Three Mystic Apes sacred ancient icon - salesSHIFT
  • Mizaru, who sees no evil, covering his eyes
  • Kikazaru, who hears no evil, covering his ears and
  • Iwazaru, who speaks no evil, covering his mouth

“Just as there is disagreement about the origin of the phrase, there are differing explanations of the meaning of “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil:”

  • In Buddhist tradition, the tenets of the proverb are about not dwelling on evil thoughts.
  • The proverb and the image are often used to refer to a lack of moral responsibility on the part of people who refuse to acknowledge impropriety, looking the other way, or feigning ignorance.[12]

(Remember when Biden’s crime brother Jim said about how they get away with their crimes, “We use plausible deniability” which means they will deny it but it has to be plausible to the stupid FBI which has worked in the past for Hillary. Remember when Comey said, “She made some careless errors but not intentional” or something to that effect, i.e. she used the “dumb” defense. So if Hunter ever gets indicted, the defense lawyers will say, “He made some careless errors, but he had no intent to commit a crime.” )

I think the three mystic monkeys should be renamed: FBI, CIA, and DOJ i.e., Wray, Haspel, and Barr as they have been guilty of refusing to acknowledge impropriety, looking the other way, or feigning ignorance.
