Every time the LSM puts on a full front press on something, They are usually trying to distract us from something they would "Rather" not have discussed.
Prime suspects are the Hildabeast or some of her toadies.
Anyone hear anything noteworthy, that hasn't been "Reported". Personally I couldnt GAF about a 30+ yrs ago scandal that didnt even kill anyone. (unlike recent past scandals)

Good thinkin'. You're probably right.
Purely financial PR crap.
The story is just a rehash of crap that has been floating around for years.
Maybe you should do a little in depth research. Nixon was good but he had to many underworld ties. His Florida connection was quite interesting and his ties with the underworld and if you want real tinfoil. there has been speculation of a connection with JFK, tin foil yes but niether proven or disproven.
This is a short bio about bebe, there is much deeper stuff.Sunday, May 10, 1998; Page B08
Charles G. "Bebe" Rebozo, 85, the son of Cuban immigrants who became a successful and largely unassuming Florida banker and businessman but gained world fame for his 44-year friendship with Richard M. Nixon, died of a brain aneurysm May 8 at a hospital in Miami. He lived in Key Biscayne, Fla.
He was a close friend, boon travel companion and personal confidant -- though not a political or policy adviser -- of Nixon's. The two men met in 1950, shortly after Nixon, then a Republican representative from California, won election to the Senate. By all accounts, they remained close friends until Nixon's death in 1994.
Mr. Rebozo and Nixon golfed, swam and boated together. Nixon's winter White House, in Key Biscayne, was near the Rebozo home.
Even as president, Nixon often visited and relaxed at the Rebozo home. It was on just such a visit in June 1972, according to an account Mr. Rebozo later gave, that Nixon first learned of the Watergate break-in. Five men, working for the Nixon campaign, had been arrested breaking into the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office building.
In a 1990 interview with the Miami Herald, Mr. Rebozo recalled the circumstances in which Nixon was informed of the break-in.
"We were swimming at Key Biscayne in front of my house. They came out and told him. He said, `What in God's name were they doing there?' "
Then, Rebozo recalled, "we laughed and forgot about it."
As the scandals that became known collectively as Watergate widened and deepened, ultimately destroying the Nixon presidency, Mr. Rebozo remained an unwavering champion and frequent companion of the embattled president.
He was with Nixon the night the president finally decided to resign his office, which he did Aug. 9, 1974.
The men remained fast friends after Nixon left office. Mr. Rebozo continued to defend his friend, though he himself was not untouched by the scandals. He was investigated by a congressional committee for accepting a $100,000 cash donation from the mysterious industrialist Howard Hughes for a Nixon campaign.
Mr. Rebozo also took the offensive against what he felt were unfair Nixon critics, especially in the media. In 1978, he unsuccessfully sued The Washington Post for libel.
Mr. Rebozo was born the youngest of nine children in Tampa and grew up in Miami. His father, a Cuban immigrant, worked as a cigar maker. The son took something of a classic Horatio Alger route, working at and then owning gas stations and other businesses before becoming a prominent local banker.
He met Nixon through another congressman who also won election to the Senate in 1950, George Smathers (D-Fla.).
Nixon and Smathers were members of a famed group of men, mostly World War II veterans, who made the first real successful step in their political careers by winning election to the House of Representatives in 1946. In addition to Smathers and Nixon, those included future presidents John F. Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Gerald R. Ford (R-Mich.).
The young congressmen maintained friendships that crossed party and ideological lines, so perhaps it was natural that an exhausted Nixon in 1950 asked Smathers for advice on where he could get some sun and recover from a nagging virus.
Smathers, a close friend of Kennedy's, was just the man for the hard-working congressman to ask for vacation advice. He recommended that Nixon seek out the Key Biscayne Hotel and Club and that the Californian look up a close friend of Smathers's, an ebullient local known as "Bebe" by one and all.
Mr. Rebozo and the future president did not hit it off at first. Mr. Rebozo took Nixon deep-sea fishing on his 33-foot ChrisCraft. But, it turned out, Nixon just did not like to fish. Mr. Rebozo reported to Smathers that Nixon could not bring himself to kill anything and that the trip was a bust.
But a friendship was born. In 1964, Mr. Rebozo chartered his spanking new Key Biscayne Bank. Nixon, who was practicing law on Wall Street, came to Florida to operate the ceremonial shovel at the bank's groundbreaking, then proudly became the bank's first depositor.
After Nixon was elected president in 1968, he cashed in his stocks and bonds, depositing the receipts in a savings account in his friend's bank. After Nixon left the presidency and seemed in some economic straights, Mr. Rebozo and his bank came to Nixon's aid in business ventures.
Mr. Rebozo remained a true friend until the very end. He said in the Miami Herald interview that the president was "everything they say he's not. He's a very sensitive man, very thoughtful and, of course, very brilliant."
Mr. Rebozo's survivors include his wife, Jane Lucke Rebozo of Key Biscayne, and a sister.
Here is a little more:The campaign became an increasingly dirty one, with mud-slinging and accusations of dirty tricks on both sides.
The Kennedy camp uncovered a story that Nixon had regularly attended parties with prostitutes at the Florida home of his friend Bebe Rebozo. They were about to release the story to the media when they found out that Kennedy had also been a party guest.
The Nixon campaign was also digging for dirt.
Thanks to connections with the FBI director J Edgar Hoover, they got hold of several files on Kennedy's sex life. Though it was not released at the time, they got hold of a rumour that Kennedy had had a secret first marriage. It would have highly damaging to Kennedy, a Catholic.
The Republicans were sure that the Kennedy campaign was bugging their telephones, and the Democrats were equally suspicious of the Nixon team.
In the last week of the campaign Kennedy told his speech writer Richard Goodwin that Nixon was a "filthy, lying son of a bitch, and a very dangerous man."
The most controversial aspect of the campaign continues to puzzle investigators - the role of organised crime.
At the time, Chicago mafia boss Sam Giancana, who shared a mistress with Kennedy, bragged that Kennedy "wouldn't even be in the White House" without the use of intimidation at the polls in Illinois.
Chicago mayor Richard Daley - the father of Al Gore's campaign manager, William Daley - famously told Kennedy late on election day: "With a little bit of luck, and the help of a few close friends, you're going to carry Illinois."
The turnout in Chicago was a staggering 89% - compared to the national figure of 62.8%.
And despite losing 93 of Illinois's 102 counties, Kennedy was eventually declared the winner by 8,858 votes.
As well as in Illinois, dirty tricks were alleged in several states including Missouri, Texas, New Jersey and West Viginia.
Nixon made it to the White House eight years later. But that race was also fairly close - he beat the Democratic candidate, Hubert Humphrey, by 0.7% of the popular vote.
The electoral college vote, however, was decisive. Nixon won 301 votes to Humphrey's 191.
You know, if you are going to post an article and someone replys to you, you realy should respond back other wise what is the point in posting it. Do you agree or disagree with the article, this is a forum.
I was more concerned about current goings on. You know, the OSM bait and switch. Kinda like a bad dinner magic theatre. You know its a cheap trick, but unless you're in the right seat, ya cant see the smoke and mirrors.
And, it's always about "timing". Why right now?
Don't know where this "Revelation" will lead...but maybe that explains Hillary "being so quiet" the last few weeks.
"Quiet" --- "I think for me, the sickest and scariest kind of rage is the Hillary Clinton kind of rage. You know, the perpetual permafrost smile she wears that's hiding a well of fury deeper than Barry White's voice during a bout of pneumonia." -- Dennis Miller
Just think about Hillary with this "revelation". She must be gloating from ear to ear knowing her role in the Nixon takedown. Remember, her "How to Take Nixon Down" was deemed both Illegal and Unconstitutional". I'm now thinking that Hillary and Felt were connected at the hip...somehow.
Hillary has no hips ........... that is a reservoir of beastly flab.
