Since I have no idea who you are referencing, I have no way of answering your question. However Cunningham isn’t that uncommon a name.

Bill is great. Wish he was on more. He’s talking about Der Fuhrer’s address to the kiddies, Van Jones, and just mentioned the Tea Party Tax Protest he attended.

Mr. Peter Lance's book Triple Cross is a great book. I read a library copy.

I think he has the best research and has the answers. He is NOT a truther.

I've heard several long interviews and though I think he's done great work on all the books he's written I refuse to buy any because he obviously despises President George Bush (Bush 2, Bush 43).

This is what I did not like about the interviews. I seemed to me that:

During the 2000s all the mis-, mal- and nonfeasance of every GS-1 and above government employee was the fault of the Bush 2 administration.

During the 1990s all the mis-, mal- and nonfeasance of every GS-1 and above government employee was the fault of.. themselves. Though when asked Mr. Lance did say that, yes President Clinton and his administration made mistakes.

The book Triple Cross does not contain much of that kind of crap. Just the facts, no BDS.

I haven’t read it, so I’ll take that as a positive book review.

RE: is Bill Joe’s son

I do not recall Mr. Cunningham's father's name but if you are talking about the baseball player the answer is no.

Sorry. Uncle Joe Cunningham was someone I knew from WHLO in Akron when I was a kid. He eventually wound up at WLW in Cincinnati. As I understand, Uncle Joe is no longer with us. But since there is someone else named Cunningham working out of the same station, and I have read a lot about him, I just want to know if he is Uncle Joe’s son. If he is, he is carrying on a great trdition. If not, well, you’re right, none of my business.

No apology required. I just didn’t know who you were talking about.

Yes the hardback version is really a big book (500+ pages if I remember correctly) and it was the first one that I was not looking at how many pages are left to read.

I was through it in no time. I did skip the very last few pages (10 or so) because it seemed to be getting into something I did not like.. perhaps all the BDS was saved up until the end. I don't recall.

What's going to be exciting is his battle with Patrick Fitzgerald who tried to stop publication of the paperback version. The hardback has been out for a few years -- it really surprised me how little notice it got. I think Fitzgerald may even have tried to get those books recalled.

I’m going from memory but isn’t it about a middle easterner that rose in the US military ranks to a highly classified position, only to be discovered a spy and subsequently imprisoned?

RE: Uncle Joe Cunningham was someone I knew from WHLO in Akron

Unless I am misremembering, Bill Cunningham described how his father abandoned the family when Bill was very young placing all the burden on Bill's mother to raise the kids.

His dad tried to contact Bill when Bill was in college (undergraduate) with news that he (the father) was dying.

Again unless I am misremembering, Bill said he ignored his dad but later had a little remorse for the rebuff.

Dietrich Snell, Jamie Gorelick. Names that keep coming up like a persistant foot fungus.

RE: Coast to Coast

Yes, I've heard all his interviews there plus a couple on local radio.

Yes the middle easterner (a former Egyptian military man) joined and became a U.S. Army sergeant serving at a special forces base. Not sure about highly classified material, he was a supply sergeant.

Yes he was discovered to be a spy but I do not remember if he ever went to prison.

Notice Lance is talking about Gorelick without once mentioning President Clinton or his administration. (Unless I missed it.)

No way would a government employee in the Bush Administration be talked about with the prefix "Bush-Administration."

I believe that Dietrich Snell was also a Clintonista.

Again, the book Triple Cross is free of BDS and President Clinton butt kissing -- so I read it and liked it.

You are correct, both are Clintonistas.

I have a correction

I typed in:

I should be

No way would a government employee in the Bush Administration be talked about without the prefix "Bush-Administration."

BTW, Mr. Lance mentioned having to go back to the 1980s. In one of his C2C interviews he blamed "Bush 1" for the 1993 WTC bombing. Poor President Clinton had no time in office "Bush 1" caused it.

RE: Uncle Joe

I am pretty certain that Uncle Joe is not Bill Cunningham's father.

I am not familiar with the radio personality Joe Cunningham but based upon other things Bill said about his father I cannot believe that Bill's father was "cool." Not in the least -- and Bill made no mention that his father had anything to do with radio work -- or for that matter, work in general. (Again I am going by memory but I think that I am remembering correctly.)

RE: WLW in Cincinnati

I listened to WLW when Richard King was on in the afternoons. 1960s. After that I left Cincinnati. I do not remember Joe Cunningham at WLW but I did not listen to WLW all the time.

OK It;s just od that Joe had been such a forde here, then Billwith the same lastname isn’t. I can accept that, but I would like it better if it were Uncle Joe...

Whoever he is, though, I hope he is doing his best and.......

Thanks! I love Willie. He’s only on 9 to midnight Sundays here and the station doesn’t even come in well.

McLame was toast after he threw a fit at the campaign stop, where Willie said “Barack Hussein Obama” and McCain blew a gasket. He could take the abuse at the Hanoi Hilton, but thought “Hussein” was over the line? ARG.

He lost right there. He never wanted to win. He wants to be liked by the enemy just like GW Bush did.
Geez I hate the loser pansy-arse mentality of the RINOs!
If they don’t fight, they’re always gonna lose!
So frustrating.
If he’d not had Sarah as running mate, the whole election would have been useless. At least the world met a real conservative in Sarah.

Willie is really smart and has a great sense of humor. He is on when Rush is on so I don’t listen to him much. Very talented guy.
