NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OUTLINES PIVOTAL ROLE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE IN NIXON '68 COMEBACK BID 

Roger Stone visits Granite State to talk Nixon, Watergate and Sign Books OCT 8
NASHUA- New York Times Bestselling author Roger Stone, a fabled Republican operative who worked for Presidents Nixon, Reagan and Bush will visit New Hampshire on Wednesday to discuss his new book "Nixon's Secrets". Stone worked on Nixon's campaign in New Hampshire in 68, went on an internship in the Nixon White House, and joined the 1972 Committee to Re-elect the President. Stone would return to New Hampshire as Regional Political Director for Ronald Reagan in 1980. Stone's new book charts Nixon's rise in politics an provides new perspective on Watergate as well as intrigue between Nixon and 1974 House Impeachment Committee Counsel Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Stone's previous book 'The Man Who Killed Kennedy-the Case Against LBJ" made the New York Times Bestseller list last November and is out now in paperback with two new chapters and an Afterward.

Stone visits Barnes and Noble at 235 Daniel Webster Highway, Nashua, NH on Wednesday Oct 8th at 6 PM for a talk, Q & A and book signing.

Stone's bio dwells on the importance of New Hampshire in Nixon's improbable comeback after losing the 1960 and 1962 elections. Stone said Nixon, with the help of Publisher William Loeb of the  Manchester Union leader, a personal friend and supporter of Nixon and the most influential media figure in New Hampshire, had built an insurmountable lead for Nixon in the "First in the Nation" primary. "Loeb used his front pages to remind voters that Dick Nixon had the sure footed foreign policy chops needed to solve the Vietnam conflict." Stone wrote.

"Lantern jawed and movie star handsome Michigan Governor George Romney was expected to block Nixon's comeback drive in New Hampshire. Nixon himself got in the primary late. There was no formal news conference, no crush of reporters, no tangle of television cables. The announcement came by means of an open letter—under a plain letterhead reading "Richard M. Nixon, New York, New York"—that was delivered to the house-hold of every New Hampshire voter- an innovation in 1968 made possible by a list developed by New Hampshire House Speaker Stewart Lamphrey, a Nixon supporter. Nixon himself visited New Hampshire for Town Meetings in which Granite Staters got to ask the former Vice President questions. Nixon himself excelled at these meetings. Wife Pat Nixon, daughters Trisha Nixon and Julie Nixon and her fiancee David Eisenhower campaigned for Nixon in New Hampshire. "says Stone.

In his new book Stone says "Because the low-key Former Governor Lane Dwinell and fire-brand former Governor Wesley Powell, both Nixon supporters, clashed with Lamphrey and each other over Nixon's New Hampshire campaign strategy, Nixon told Aide John Sears to find a junior but capable member of New Hampshire State Legislature to run his Granite State Campaign. "Make sure whoever you pick is not seen to be in the camp of Dwinell, Powell, Lamphrey or Loeb, for that matter. An honest broker" Nixon's said. "Get me a young guy with energy." Sears selected State Representative David Sterling, a handsome young conservative from Hillsboro. Sterling ran a whirlwind campaigns and skilfully mediated among the warring Nixon factions. Although President Nixon would call Sterling on the one year anniversary of his New Hampshire victory, Representative Sterling would be killed in a car accident only weeks later May 16, 1969."
 
"Nixon's New Hampshire lead was reflected in a secret poll conducted just primary days by Michigan Governor George Romney showing the hard campaigning but gaffe prone Romney losing to Nixon 79 % to %13. Romney dropped out even before the ballots were cast." said Stone." Victory in New Hampshire was they key first step in a series of primary victory designed to dispel the "Loser" image. Nixon ended up with 73% of the New Hampshire vote and would go on to victory in 1968.

Stone's soaring biography gives us the inside scoop on Nixon's career and rise and fall in Watergate in the new book. Stone charts Nixon's rise from election to Congress in 1946 and the White House in 1968, after his razor-thin loss to John F. Kennedy in 1960, to his disastrous campaign for Governor of California in 1962 and the greatest comeback in American Presidential history.

In Nixon’s Secrets, Stone reveals how the Kennedy's wiretapped Nixon's hotel room the night before the historically infamous 1960 Nixon-Kennedy debate, and stole Nixon's medical records from his psychiatrist’s office. Stone lays out how Kennedy running mate Lyndon Johnson claimed Texas for JFK through vote fraud while Mayor Richard Daley took Illinois and how JFK actually lost the popular vote.  

Stone walks us thru Watergate and reveals that FBI man Mark Felt is not deep throat of Woodward and Bernstein fame. Stone does however show Felt as a major player in the cover-up of the JFK assassination, acting as an enforcer for FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

Stone outlines how White House Counsel John Dean, planned, pushed and covered-up the Watergate break-in, then sought to avoid responsibility for it. Stone outlines how Dean has sought to obscure his own role in Watergate and has manipulated the Nixon tapes in Dean’s new book “The Nixon Defense“ to deflect blame to the President and away from himself.

Stone tells us how Nixon used his knowledge of Ford’s dark secrets to avoid prosecution by blackmailing Gerald Ford for a full, free and unconditional pardon. Not only would this destroy Nixon’s presidency, it would save him from prison and allow him to launch his final comeback as a statesman advising President Bill Clinton on Foreign Affairs despite Hillary’s attempts to block him.

Other compelling stories in the book include:

* Stone examines the 18 1/2 minute gap in the White House Tapes and explains what was on the erased section, who really erased it and why.

* Stone explains why FBI Man Mark Felt is not “Deep Throat,” and why there is no “Deep Throat.”

* Stone shares why Nixon was demanding the CIA to turn over the records of the Bay of Pigs and Kennedy Assassination.

* Stone looks at how a cabal of military and intelligence hard-liners spied on and undermined Nixon to stop his pro-peace detente Foreign Policy, his withdrawal of troops from Vietnam, his arms limitation agreement with the Soviets and his opening to Red China.

* Stone reveals how Vice President Spiro Agnew was set-up to move Nixon out of the presidential succession line. 
 
Stone details General Alexander Haig’s orchestration of Nixon's removal from office in a coup de etat and brokered the secret deal for his pardon.

“Nixon has been the subject of fascination and public debate for six and a half decades,” said Stone. “Readers will learn so much they didn’t know about Nixon, his rise and fall and the truth about Watergate and the pardon.”

"The mainstream media’s interpretation of Watergate is a fantastic and grotesque distortion of historical truth,” explained Stone.  He added, “Cursory examination of the facts in Watergate will reveal that the actions which caused the fall of Nixon cannot be reduced to the simplistic account summarized by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post.”

Described by the New York Times’s Maureen Dowd as “The Keeper of the Nixon flame,” Stone was the youngest member of the Nixon staff in 1972 and worked closely with Nixon on his rehabilitation in his post-Presidential years.  Stone has been a Washington Insider for the last 40 years and played a key role in the election of Republican presidents Nixon, Ronald Reagan and    his book on Lyndon B. Johnson was the second bestselling book during the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s murder.  In addition to his books, Stone writes for the Daily Caller and the FOX opinion page.

Heritage - Liberals can't stand this 

The Heritage Foundation

Liberty. Limited government. Individual responsibility. Hard work.

These are among the principles that make America great. And they’re exactly what President Obama and his progressive allies hate. Most of all, progressives hate the idea that government shouldn’t control every aspect of our lives.

That’s why my friend and FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe wrote his new book, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff. If we’re going to beat the progressives and restore constitutional government, we need to show the American people that our ideas are better.

I urge you to pre-order your copy of Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff right now.

Government can only be limited if every American understands what liberty is. My friend Matt understands this. He understands why America is exceptional.

Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff is chock-full of the principles we need to share with our fellow countrymen. With its emphasis on individual liberty, it’s a perfect complement to my new book that reveals why local communities, not central planners, offer real solutions for America.

Make sure you pre-order your copy of Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff today.

Free people don’t hurt each other or steal their stuff. That’s what Big Government does.

If we’re going to take back our country, we need to spread our ideas far and wide. And Matt’s book, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff, is one of the best weapons we have to fight back against the big-government progressives.

Pre-order your copy now.

Sincerely,
Jim
Jim DeMint
President
