10 most destructive Americans of the last 80 years

10 most destructive Americans of the last 80 years.

America has undergone enormous change during the nearly eight decades of my life.

Today, America is a bitterly divided, poorly educated, and morally fragile society with so-called mainstream politicians pushing cynical identity politics, socialism, and open borders. The president of the United States has been threatened with impeachment because the other side doesn’t like him. The once reasonably unbiased American media has evolved into a hysterical left wing mob.

How could the stable and reasonably cohesive America of the 1950s have reached this point in just one lifetime? Who are the main culprits? Here’s my list of the 10 most destructive Americans of the last 80 years.

  1. Mark Felt – Deputy director of the FBI, aka “Deep Throat” during the Watergate scandal. This was the first public instance of a senior FBI official directly interfering in America’s political affairs. He was the forerunner of James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Andrew McCabe.

  2. Bill Ayers – Represents the deep and ongoing leftist ideological damage to our education system. An unrepentant American terrorist who evaded punishment, he devoted his career to radicalizing American education and pushing leftist causes. Ghost wrote Obama’s book, “Dreams From My Father.”

  3. Teddy Kennedy – Most folks remember Teddy as the guy who left Mary Joe Kopechne to die in his car at Chappaquiddick. The real damage came after he avoided punishment for her death and became a major Democrat force in the US Senate, pushing through transformative liberal policies in health care and education. The real damage was the 1965 Hart-Cellar immigration bill he pushed hard for that changed the quota system to increase the flow of third world people without skills into the US and essentially ended large-scale immigration from Europe.

  4. Walter Cronkite – Cronkite was a much beloved network anchor who began the politicization of America’s news media with his infamous broadcast from Vietnam that described the Tet Offensive as a major victory for the Communists and significantly turned the gullible American public against the Vietnam War. In fact, the Tet offensive was a military disaster for the NVA and Viet Cong, later admitted by North Vietnamese military leaders. Decades later Cronkite admitted he got the story wrong. But it was too late The damage was done.

  5. Bill and Hillary Clinton- It’s difficult to separate Team Clinton. Bill’s presidency was largely benign as he was a relative fiscal conservative who rode the remaining benefits of the Reagan era. But his sexual exploits badly stained the Oval Office and negatively affected America’s perception of the presidency. In exchange for financial support, he facilitated the transfer of sensitive military technology to the Chinese. Hillary, a Saul Alinsky acolyte, is one of the most vicious politicians of my lifetime, covering up Bill’s sexual assaults by harassing and insulting the exploited women and peddling influence around the globe in exchange for funds for the corrupt Clinton Foundation. She signed off on the sale of 20% of the US uranium reserve to the Russians after Bill received a $500,000 speaking fee in Moscow and the foundation (which supported the Clinton’s regal lifestyle) received hundreds of millions of dollars from those who benefited from the deal. Between them, they killed any honor that might have existed in the dark halls of DC.

  6. Valerie Jarrett - The Rasputin of the Obama administration. A Red Diaper baby, her father, maternal grandfather and father-in-law (Vernon Jarrett who was a close friend and ally of Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis) were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. Government. She has been in Obama’s ear for his entire political career pushing a strong anti-American, Islamist, anti-Israeli, socialist/communist, cling-to-power agenda.

  7. Jimmy Carter - Carter ignited modern day radical Islam by abandoning the Shah and paving the way for Ayatollah Khomeini to take power in Tehran. Iran subsequently became the main state sponsor and promoter of international Islamic terrorism. When Islamists took over our embassy in Tehran, Carter was too weak to effectively respond thus strengthening the rule of the radical Islamic mullahs.

  8. Lyndon Johnson – Johnson turned the Vietnam conflict into a major war for America. It could have ended early if he had listened to the generals instead of automaker Robert McNamara. The ultimate result was:

A) 58,000 American military deaths and collaterally tens of thousands of American lives damaged; and

B) a war that badly divided America and created left wing groups that evaded the draft and eventually gained control of our education system.

Even worse, his so-called War on Poverty led to the destruction of American black families with a significant escalation of welfare and policies designed to keep poor families dependent on the government (and voting Democrat) for their well-being. He deliberately created a racial holocaust that is still burning today. A strong case could be made for putting him at the top of this list.

  1. Barack Hussein Obama- Obama set up America for a final defeat and stealth conversion from a free market society to socialism/communism. As we get deeper into the Trump presidency, we learn more each day about how Obama politicized and compromised key government agencies, most prominently the FBI, the CIA and the IRS, thus thoroughly shaking the public’s confidence in the federal government to be fair and unbiased in its activities. He significantly set back race and other relations between Americans by stoking black grievances and pushing radical identity politics. Obama’s open support for the Iranian mullahs and his apologetic “lead from behind” foreign policy seriously weakened America abroad. His blatant attempt to interfere in Israel’s election trying to unseat Netanyahu is one of the most shameful things ever done by an American president.

The Number 1 Worst American is John Kerry– Some readers will likely say Kerry does not deserve to be number one on this list. I have him here because I regard him as the most despicable American who ever lived. After his three faked Purple Hearts during his cowardly service in Vietnam, he was able to leave the US Navy early. As a reserve naval officer and in clear violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, he traveled to Paris and met privately with the NVA and the Viet Cong. He returned to the United States parroting the Soviet party line about the war and testified before Congress comparing American soldiers to the hordes of Genghis Khan. It was a clear case of treason, giving aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war. We got a second bite of the bitter Kerry apple when as Obama’s secretary of state, he fell into bed with the Iranian (“Death to America”) mullahs giving them the ultimate green light to develop nuclear weapons along with billions of dollars that further supported their terrorist activities. Only the heroic Swift Vets saved us from a Manchurian Candidate Kerry presidency. Ultimately we got Obama.

Dishonorable Mentions! (Just missed the list)

John Brennan – Obama’s CIA director who once voted for Communist Gus Hall for president. A key member of the Deep State who severely politicized the CIA. Called President Trump treasonous for meeting with the president of Russia.

Jane Fonda – movie actress who made the infamous trip to Vietnam during the war in support of the Communists. She represents hard left Hollywood that has done so much damage to our culture.

Jimmy Hendrix and Janice Joplin – Both revered entertainers helped usher in the prevailing drug culture and personally suffered the consequences. Karma’s a bitch

Robert Johnson – As head of BET helped popularize ho’s, bitches and pimps while making millions on great hits such as “Jigga my Nigga”, “Big Pimpin’”, “Niggas in Paris” and “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.” Many scholars within the African American community maintain that BET perpetuates and justifies racism by adopting the stereotypes held about African Americans, affecting the psyche of young viewers through the bombardment of negative images of African-Americans. Who can disagree?

Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr – Head of the New York Times. Once the gold standard of American journalism, the paper always had a liberal tilt and occasionally made bad mistakes. As the years have gone along, the paper has slid further and further left and today is virtually the primary propaganda arm of the increasingly radical Democrat Party. Still retains influence in Washington and New York.

Frank Marshall Davis - Anti-white, black Bolshevik, card-carrying Soviet agent. Probable birth father and admitted primary mentor of young Barack Hussein Obama.

Special Reward goes to George Soros – ■■■■■■ former Nazi collaborator in his native Hungary who as a self-made billionaire has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into left wing groups and causes. The damage he has caused is difficult to measure, but it’s certainly large. He has funded much of the effort to kill the Trump presidency.


It is gratifying to see that Mr. Hawkins, who is in a far more informed position than me, independently agrees that Jimmy Carter was a seriously destructive force against America’s best interests.

Personally, I could move Carter closer to the top of the Most Destructive Americans list, at least above Lyndon Johnson, on the premise that the former peanut farmer turned president, through his flawed decision to unleash Khoemeini and his plan for Islamic Jihad resulted in more total mayhem, death, and destruction on a world-wide basis that continues to this day But on balance, LBJ directly caused the deaths of some 58,000 people in his utter mismanagement of the Vietnam War Counting American deaths from terrorist attacks (think 9/11) and war deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan still doesn’t add up to 58,000. So, Mr. Hawkins is entitled to his opinion, which is limited to the adverse impact solely upon Americans, not the whole world.

I hope that you observed that most names on this list are either prominent DEMOCRATS or allied with them.

Vote wisely in November.

What? No Dr Fauci on this list?

The original email was trending in December, 2018. Dr. Fauci’s fraud and misrepresentations had not been in the news as COVID-19 had not yet been publicized.

Add Bill Gates to the list as well. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

How many in the list are/were not (crypto-) ■■■■■
Ted Kennedy and Jimmy Carter were not, but the rest of the crowd?

Here we go again with your predictable paranoid schizophrenia narratives again! “The jooooooos did it! The jooooos did it” Blah blah blah!

11. Lyndon Johnson – Johnson turned the Vietnam conflict into a major war for America. It could have ended early if he had listened to the generals. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The old man was a seasoned jungle fighter. 3+ years in the Burma Jungle ( WW2 ) with OSS 101. Told me Vietnam could have been laid to rest in a few months. Told me he never saw such pandemonium in a conflict. He quoted Monty Python. Said Vietnam was the 100 yard dash for people with no sense of direction.

Johnson was the President who tried to deep-six the USS Liberty incident, so to speak.
Texe Marrs believes Johnson was a crypto-■■■■

After the war, the old man was offered a commission to teach jungle warfare. He turned it down; said, he had already digested enough human misery. But during Vietnam, I think he had moments when he had regrets for turning down the commission. He had accolades that may have made a positive difference in Vietnam.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- OSS 101 The highest kill, lowest loss ratio in the recorded history of American combat. 15,000 Japanese killed & wounded. 27 Americans lost. The old man said the best way to describe the agenda of OSS 101 was, very refined guerilla tactics.

Merrill’s Marauders? The 5307th put to good use that K-Bar!


The slimy Clinton’s and the divider in chief Obama are tops in the list .


This re-fighting of the Vietnam war bugs me a little. The lesson that we should have learned from Vietnam, and guys like Rumsfeld didn’t, is that having a kickass military doesn’t mean we can, or should, go civilize every fucking hellhole in the world. Many places have too many bad guys and not enough good guys. Nixon’s best accomplishment was getting us out of the hellhole.

I agree about John Kerry, though. I have a personal anecdote from the 70’s that made me think that Kerry was a dangerous phony. I went to a meeting of a group called the Winter Soldier Organization, a follow-on from Kerry’s Vietnam Veterans Against the War. It was me and a group of about 30 communists. No exaggeration, I spent a couple of hours arguing with them and it was communists, anarchists, syndicalists, all some variant of Marxism whatever they wanted to call themselves. At the end, they gave me a form to join their group, and it included an oath that I wasn’t a member of law enforcement.

I’ve always been anti-establishment, and I was at least confident that those bozos would never become the establishment. Now they have, and it’s scary.

John Kerry is a member of Skull and Bones.
It ought to tell us something.
He pretends to be Irish but he is not. His real name is Kohn (Cohen).

The old man said, the Japanese were absolutely terrified of the Gurkha troops. No quarter, image


The Japanese were happy to meet true soldiers, not fake ones.

BTW, Dr Shiva’s motto was: True Indian beats fake Indian. (Referring to Pocahontas)

Meetings with Gurkhas were usually very brief.

S. Experimental Station, Detachment 101, OSS, and activated in September of 1942 , the organization was formed to conduct intelligence and paramilitary operations in China , Burma, and India. But the political complexities of the CBI Theater coupled with the needs of the moment led to the deployment of Detachment 101 in Burma. My father ( 1st Sgt ), 40 other Americans & 200 Gurkha troops were there a year before Merrill. My dad said, he couldn’t figure out why Merrill & his men were slogging through the Burma jungle with mules, constantly up & down the mountainous terrain, when the roads were open & secure. My father & his men were jungle veterans long befoe Merrill arrived. When my father was preparing to leave after the war was coming to an end, he was ordered to destroy all records. Of course he followed orders. He was NEVER CHECKED when he came back to the states. What a story that would have made if he had kept the key records. If only CDs had existed.
