The other side of the story. The truth and proof that Mark Felt was not what he appeared to be at the time of Watergate, when acting as "Deep Throat", that he is not what he appears to be today coming forward to disclose that he is Deep Throat, that he disingenuously revealed the truth(s) about Nixon's lies and the Watergate coverup back in the day, and that he approved of and helped carry out the draconian, anti-democratic, Constitution- and civil-rights- violating COINTELPRO, spying on our own peaceful, non-violent citizens who were doing nothing but carrying out their Constitutional right(s) to dissent and protest against the extremely unlawful Vietnam war, and to thereby be a check and balance by the citizenry on the U.S. government's mass-murderous abuse of power which the American public is supposed to be, and fomenting violence against, and false arrest(s) of, them for doing so, and as the result of being framed for violent acts which the U.S. government entrapped them with and/or framed them for, all blatantly contrary to the U.S. Constitution, and just as the Vietnam war of today, the war in Iraq, and its corresponding undermining of human and civil rights, escalation of crimes against humanity, and war crimes against Iraq, its people, and many others abroad and in the U.S., is very seriously and blatantly contrary to the U.S. Constitution, as well as several other national and international laws and/or treaties.
In short, Mark Felt is a fraud, and not really the hero that he, Bob Woodward and others are making him out to be, though he did do what was right, no matter how nefariously, in revealing the Watergate coverup and the blatant and extremely serious felonious civil, Constitutional and other law violating dishonesty of the Nixon administration to the American people, including breaking and entering, and burglary, by the Nixon White House. But he should have also revealed and thereby stood up against COINTELPRO as well; and the very fact that he did not, reveals the true character of this typical top FBI man, and the true nature of his less than heroic, disingenuous act of exposing the lies and illegal actions of the Nixon administration surrounding Watergate, that were but a drop in the bucket of the illegal actions of not only the White House, but also of the "Justice" Department, FBI, CIA, state and local law enforcement, and others, proving that we live in, not a truly free country, but an Orwellian, authoritarian police state of Biblical and/or theocratic proportions, much to the extreme and very serious detriment of all Americans, whether they realize it or not.
Yet Mark Felt's coming foward at this time is being used to warn us thick-headed "Americans" and the rest of the world of the foregoing facts, and to give us a chance to put a stop to the juggernaut of the fast-encroaching fulfillment of the Strausscon-Neocon plans to completely take away the freedom(s) of everyone, including Americans, both in the U.S. and all over the world, as they have been incessantly, insidiously and very successfully carrying out, step by step, for decades if not for over one hundred years; for all that they have been doing is part of a well-orchestrated, slow plan to control every aspect of the lives of every soul on the face of the planet; and, with the help of God, we must resist, with every fibre of our beings, this supplanting of individuality and free will with blind subserviance to evil and darkness, no matter what, and we must do it NOW before it is very soon forever too late!
VIOLATOR, AND CIA ASSET BOB WOODWARD"

"Finally, for all the good it will do, we are hearing about the real Mark Felt, not the Watergate "hero," in the corporate media. Colbert I. King, writing for the Washington Post, makes mention of Felt's grubby fingerprints smudged on the Constitution, telling us COINTELPRO was launched in the "name of protecting national security and preventing violence" when in fact it was undertaken primarily to get rid of critics of the government, opponents of the Vietnam war, and people who were sick and tired of being treated like second and third class citizens (African-Americans, Native Americans, and Puerto Rican nationalists). In fact, as King notes, "the FBI tried to promote factionalism and violence" between these groups, in other words, much of the above mentioned violence was the product of the FBI and its agents and freelancers. Tried nothing, in fact they did a smash up job.
"Reading the corporate media, you get the impression Felt's hands-on management of the trampling the Bill of Rights was a minor infraction, something unfortunately required to stop a bunch of anti-American miscreants from endangering national security. It is treated as an isolated incident, a product of the times (the words "Weather underground" are invariably tossed around, as if millions of people in opposition to the Vietnam War were bomb-throwers and bank robbers). In fact, COINTELPRO was simply one act in a larger history of government subversion of constitutional rights. It can be argued that the government has cracked down on dissidents since the founding of the republic, beginning with George Washington dispatching 12,000 troops to Pennsylvania in order to put down the Whiskey Rebellion (an insurrection in opposition to taxation but also a lightning rod for settlers of the region for a variety of grievances).
"John Adams contrived the Sedition Act (1798) for "criticizing federalist policies" and made it a crime to publish any "false, scandalous and malicious" writing against the government, the Congress, or the President "with intent to defame" them or bring them "into contempt or disrepute or to stir up sedition," a law directly in conflict with the First Amendment, which states "Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press."
"Lincoln suspended the writ of habeas corpus (a violation of Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution) during the Civil War and had opponents who "had done nothing worse than bad-mouth the president," as David Greenberg writes, locked up in federal jails and stockades. "Overall between 10,000 and 15,000 people were incarcerated without a prompt trial."
"On 16 May, 1918, Congress passed the U.S. Sedition Act (following the Espionage Act of 1917), making it a crime to "print, write, or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the form of government of the United States," thus criminalizing thousands of people opposed to U.S. entry into the First World War. "Some corporations and political leaders used sedition laws to crush trade unions," writes John J. Dwyer. "Historian Walter Karp recalled a woman who wrote to a newspaper during the war that 'I am for the people and the government is for the profiteers' received a ten-year prison sentence. Federal agents seized a motion picture, The Spirit of '76, because the 'portrayal of the American Revolution had cast British redcoats in an unfavorable light.' That film's producer, too, received ten years in prison." The labor and political leader (and presidential candidate) Eugene Debs was convicted and sentenced to serve ten years in prison and disenfranchised for life, losing his citizenship, after delivering an anti-war speech on June 16, 1918. Anarchist Emma Goldman and others were arrested, convicted, and eventually deported for organizing against the war.
"In 1940, the Smith Act was passed. It criminalized speech and activism. "Federal Bureau of Investigation director J. Edgar Hoover, immensely proud of his leading role in the government's nationwide persecution and deportation of radicals and immigrants during the 1919 Palmer Raids, suggested to President Harry Truman in 1948 that the Smith Act be used against the Communist Party and its sympathizers," writes Michael Steven Smith. "The successful use of the Smith Act by the Truman administration against the top leaders of the Communist Party drove a large stake into the heart not only of the Party but of every organization in which the Communists had been active and influential. Not least of the indirect casualties was the newly formed Progressive Party."
"Although progressives were crippled by the Smith Act, it did not do enough damage for the government. "When congressional investigations, political trials and other traditional legal methods of repression failed to counter the growing movements of the 1950s, '60s and '70s, and even helped fuel them, the FBI and police moved outside the law," explain Mike Cassidy and Will Miller. Thus COINTELPRO was created. The FBI and Mark Felt "used secret and systematic methods of fraud and force, far beyond mere surveillance, to sabotage constitutionally protected political activity. The purpose of the program was, in FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover's own words, to 'expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit and otherwise neutralize' specific groups and individuals."
"Thanks to Reagan's pardoning of Mark Felt, the old man is not locked up in a federal penitentiary for violating the civil rights of hundreds of thousands of people. It is disgusting to see video of this vile old man smiling and waving from the door of his home, and almost as disgusting to witness the corporate media sucking it up.
"Meanwhile, ever the shameless opportunist, Bob Woodward "is racing out a book on Felt's story" because "Felt is really old and full of contradictions in his recounting of the Deep Throat tale," according to Bob Rosner (no doubt Woodward will "fix" these "contradictions" so they jive with the official version of events). "Woodward wrote a long article in The Washington Post recently about how Felt took him under his wing when Woodward was a young officer in the Navy. He gave him career advice for many years. As the No. 2 guy in the FBI, Felt met repeatedly with Woodward to help steer his investigation into the Nixon administration. Felt risked his career to deliver the story of a lifetime to Woodward."
"Now isn't that special.
"No mention here of Woodward's stint working for the CIA in Navy intelligence (or as a CIA recruiter) and his earlier membership in Yale's Book and Snake (described by Lisa Pease as "a cut below the more infamous Skull and Bones," the secret society where Bush and Kerry once romped with select members of the ruling elite). "Whatever his background, whatever his connections, one cannot trust what Woodward says as fact," writes Pease. "Given his role in the Watergate cover-up, and the misrepresentations in his own work, it remains to us a huge mystery why this man is treated with the reverence he is. Considering his behavior, his background, his credibility, and his connections, we now feel compelled to [ask] who is Bob Woodward? Whom does he serve? Is his career sustained for the purposes of those with a 'secret agenda'?"
"As Pease documents, there are plenty of fishy things about Woodward's Deep Throat story (see previous link) and many of the details are downright silly. Considering Woodward's intelligence background (and his none other than meteoric rise as a reporter at the Washington Post and Post publisher Philip Graham's connections to the CIA's Operation Mockingbird, as documented by Alex Constantine), it is fair, in fact, a more than safe assumption, to say we are not getting the whole skinny on the Mark Felt Deep Throat story. There is more to it than a senile old man, a serial violator of civil rights, wanting to get his fifteen minutes of fame as he peers into the grave.
"Now Bob Woodward, as a chronicler for the ruling elite and plutocracy, will write the official version of what happened and the role Mark Felt supposedly played in those events. Point is, you cannot trust these guys, serial violators of civil liberties and CIA newspaper reporters, far as you can throw them."
'YAKETY YAK, DO TALK BACK'!!!!! AND KEEP "TALKING BACK" TO THE PLUTOCRACY AND THE RULING "ELITE(ISTS)", AND STANDING UP AGAINST AND RESISTING WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT THEIR ATTEMPTED SUBJUGATION AND REPRESSION OF US ALL!!!!!
