In the very early nineties, the Democrats were as obsessed with cocaine as they are now are with Russia. The cocaine in question was alleged to have been bought by Vice President Dan Quayle. The 1992 election was coming up. The decades of corruption, slime and lies by the Clintons were about to pay off.
But that’s not how it looked then.
President George H.W. Bush was enjoying high approval ratings. Bill Clinton would weasel and claw his way to the front of the line largely because the election seemed like a lot cause for the Democrats.
But the Clintons still had plenty of dirty tricks left to play. The Quayle cocaine story was one of them. Like most discredited Democrat smears, it was forgotten once it was no longer needed. It’s hard now to understand how so many reporters and politicians could be sucked in by a ridiculous smear campaign.
One of the Quayle accusers had confessed to lying both to prison officials and to 60 Minutes.

Republican Rep. Jim Jordan accused key Clinton allies of helping craft a second anti-Trump dossier and accused them of “rigging the game,” Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.”
Jordan was asked about a possible second dossier and said Clinton operatives Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer had paid Christopher Steele to do opposition research, but then told Steele which specific details to include.
“The names we keep hearing are Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer — people who have been around the Clintons as being a part of this. But I also think it’s kind of interesting because what it looks like is, they paid Steele to put together the dossier and told him what to put in,” Jordan said. “Talk about rigging the game and putting together a document that will serve your purposes as an opposition research document.”
“That is what the Clinton team did and then when you see names like Sidney Blumenthal coming up. We deposed this guy during the Benghazi hearings,” Jordan continued. “He has been with the Clintons forever. He was knee deep in the whole Libya, Benghazi story, particularly the story where they weren’t square with the American people about what was the actual catalyst of the attack, and they tried to blame it on video.”
Jordan expressed outrage at how the government omitted information about the dossier while seeking a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant and said it was vital for the American public to have seen the GOP’s recently released FISA memo.
“That dossier was taken to a secret court to get a secret warrant to spy on fellow citizen and they weren’t clear with the court who paid for it, who was involved with, and the fact that they had already fired Chris Steele from any type of relationship with the FBI because he broke a fundamental trust. He went to the press and told them he was working with the FBI. And yet they still used this work product, this dossier,” Jordan concluded. “That’s what’s so ridiculous about how they handled this, and why that memo last week from the Republicans was so important that the American people see.”
The story we’ve all been handed from the democrats is that the investigation into Trump is about collusion with Russia. There is not a shred of evidence to support that contention but that hasn’t stopped democrats from repeating it. But what if that’s only a cover story?
One of the early targets of the Russia accusation is Carter Page. Page is frequently called an idiot, but he is anything but and idiot:
Page graduated in 1993 from the United States Naval Academy; he was a Distinguished Graduate (top 10% of his class) and was chosen for the Navy’s Trident Scholar program, which gives selected officers the opportunity for independent academic research and study. During his senior year at the Naval Academy, he worked as a researcher for the House Armed Services Committee. He served in the Navy for five years, including a tour in western Morocco as an intelligence officer for a United Nations peacekeeping mission. In 1994, he completed a master of arts degree in National Security Studies at Georgetown University.[13
His efforts for Donald Trump have resulted in a non-stop colonoscopy for Page. He has been accused of being a spy. ABC said that the Russians tried to recruit him- unsuccessfully- but that hasn’t stopped media outlets from asserting that he ‘was recruited” by Russia.
I had a discussion with a liberal who insisted that Page was a Russian agent but called it ‘capitalism” when Bill Clinton visited Putin’s home and walked away with $500,000 the next day, but that’s how discussions with liberals go.
The thing is, Page has been under surveillance by US intelligence agencies since 2014. That obviously has netted nothing as Page remains a free man untouched by the Mueller probe. Without a doubt, the obama regime knows everything Page knows.
