IS BILL CLINTON A "COKEHEAD"?
Notwithstanding a recent communication from a CN reader, in which
she expressed her doubts regarding the allegations, this editor
considers it almost certain that Bill Clinton has a cocaine
problem. And, in fact, the President may well have a severe
addiction which would mean he is indeed a "cokehead."
To the point raised as to why isn't Clinton's nose giving
television viewers evidence of such cocaine abuse, my answer is
that until recently Clinton's nose *was* giving such indications.
Yes, the bulbous red nose is no longer gracing our television
screens, but "call girl" Sherry Rowlands offers an explanation.
According to the cover story in the September 10, 1996 issue of
the *Star*, Rowlands had mentioned to Dick Morris, her alleged
client, that "the president's nose was so red and bulbous on TV
that it distracted her from his words. Morris said he'd relayed
that to Clinton -- and that Clinton said he was taking medication
for a skin condition."
To those who have read about Clinton's early days, it is clear
that he grew up in a dysfunctional environment and that later he
connected, at least tangentially, with the cocaine sub-culture.
According to Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, writing in the London
Sunday Telegraph ("Clinton 'took cocaine while in office,'" July
17, 1994), Bill Clinton may have "engaged in regular use of
cocaine and marijuana during his rise to political prominence in
Arkansas." Evans-Pritchard bases his story, in part, on the
testimony of Sally Perdue, who claims to have had an affair with
the then-Governor. Clinton, on one occasion, is said to have had
a bag of cocaine from which he prepared a "line" on Perdue's
living room table. Says Perdue: "He had all the equipment laid
out, like a real pro."
While some may, for some reason, look down their nose at
Evans-Pritchard (specifically *The Nation* magazine which, based
on a dismissive review of the bestselling *Partner's in Power*,
seems for unknown reasons to shun Evans-Pritchard's reportage),
his evidence is being increasingly corroborated. Yes, beware of
Republican propaganda. Beware too of an extremely Clinton-biased
Franklin's Focus, a concise and affordable monthly newsletter
(Focus Press, 1820 Palisades Drive, Appleton, WI 54915), carries
news on this subject in its September 1996 issue. According to
editor Richard L. Franklin, he has viewed a police surveillance
film of Bill Clinton's half brother Roger. Roger Clinton is
purportedly shown snorting cocaine. Franklin writes that Roger
"looks up and says, 'Wow this is great stuff. I've got to get
some for my brother. He has a nose like a vacuum.'"
Franklin's Focus goes on to report that the August 14, 1996 issue
of *Strategic Investment* carries an article supporting
allegations of cocaine abuse by President Clinton. Reportedly,
Senators Ted Kennedy and John Glenn have been given copies of
Bill Clinton's latest medical report which, reports Franklin,
"describes the rotting of [Bill Clinton's] nasal septum, a
condition due to his habit of snorting five lines of coke daily."
Recall too the recent story by Sherman Skolnick on this matter.
Skolnick, you may remember, was the first to break the story of a
high level meeting between Bill Clinton and Democratic Party
elders during which former DNC chairperson Robert Strauss is
reported to have told Clinton, "You use cocaine and liquor. You
are unfit to deal with worldwide emergencies." Corroboration of
this meeting having occurred first came when a person claiming to
be Strauss phoned Skolnick and berated him. This conversation
was recorded and has been heard by witnesses. Further
corroboration was provided by guerrilla journalist J. Orlin
Grabbe, who confirms that the aforementioned meeting between
Clinton and Democratic Party elders took place. Grabbe also
confirms Bill Clinton's alleged cocaine habit.
This editor has had the pleasure of innumerable conversations
with Sherman Skolnick. While some may question how discerning
Mr. Skolnick is regarding what his various informants tell him, I
myself know that he has highly-placed sources with whom he is in
regular contact. Some of these sources are in the White House.
The allegations of a specific "five lines a day" Clinton cocaine
habit were first conveyed to me by Sherman Skolnick earlier this
And, regarding the withholding of President Clinton's medical
records, this was confirmed this morning, September 6th, by G.
Gordon Liddy on his radio show. Referring to Russian president
Boris Yeltsin's having finally disclosed his current medical
reports, Liddy opined that it would be nice if Bill Clinton would
do likewise. What more does Liddy know that he's not saying?
So, with all respect to those who think otherwise, I consider it
highly probable that President Bill Clinton does have a cocaine
habit, either ongoing or recurring. Perhaps you feel that
Clinton can "maintain" and it is therefore not a major issue. To
those I point out that such a rationalization may make you an
"enabler" and as such a co-dependent. Was Bill Clinton high on
cocaine when he made the decision to launch missiles against
Iraq? The question is valid.
