Idiot, the point of the podcast is to sway and indoctrinate towards a specific belief and apply it to a modern agenda. get a brain, learn to use it, it would do you some good!

Moron, you made nothing but assumptions on one simple remark! Then followed it up with an insult. I don’t believe I said I anything that supported Spiro! But if you want to bring up trash, lets start with Clinton money laundering, ties to drug running, or email servers undermining national security. Then we can talk about the Bush’s war to steal oil and put foreign countries under U.S.treasury debt. Dumb idiot, republican or liberal can’t take away your stupidity! As you can see, Im not biased. You should try critical thinking...oh, dinosaurs weren’t taught that back then..sry.

Techno Tard REALLY!! The point of Rachel's podcast is its relevance to the prescent repukan administration. Since I lived through those times Rachel is talking about.This administration is far beyond what came out during 1973. Listen to the WHOLE podcast. Or couldn't you stand the corruption the Nixon administration was in. Because equating the dumpsters' as a repukan, in truly high crimes and misdemeanors with a level of treason is a hard pill to swallow. The Clinton administrations' was the repukans revenge. Was about improper conduct with a willing 21 yr. old intern. There was the White Water investigation which I believe was from the state of Arkansas. There certainly were numerous reports by many women. I WILL NOT defend Bill Clinton. My point is there has been 6 repukan President's who have lied, cheated, stold, covered up, bribed, and cause the killing of America soliders and civilians from other countries who were unarmed. Or murder EVEN when they surrender. Shot in the head as we watched the nightly broadcast. Please avil yourself with facts of American history. It's easier then ever before, it's called Google, UTUBE, an C-SPAN (archives). Give it a try. Sincerely. 3/18/2019 From Beaverton Oregon.
