  • Does 1979 newspaper column shed light on 2008 campaign story? (Obama funding)

    Searching old newspapers is one of my favorite pastimes, and I have tried to use them many times to shed light on current events - or to inform readers about how the past is prologue to our very interesting present-day quandaries. Recently, I came across a syndicated column from November 1979 that seemed to point 30 years into the future toward an obscure campaign issue that arose briefly in the 2008 presidential campaign. Though by no means definitive, it provides an interesting insight, at least, into how Chicago politics intersected with the black power movement and Middle Eastern money at...

    DISPATCHES FROM THE AMERICAN FRONT George Bush, Real ManBy James Benton You could see it in his eyes, hear it in his tone Tuesday night in the second half of his State of the Union speech: this was a man not to be trifled with, a man who would see a difficult, dirty business through to the end, and God help anyone who stood against him as he does battle against the foes of America and her ideals. If anyone had doubts about Bush's commitment to victory in the War on Terrorism, they were laid to rest Tuesday night. Rarely...

    Most Americans haven’t forgotten the bald-faced lies the Clintons told about Bill’s affairs and molestations along with the sheer savagery of the attacks their surrogates launched against these women. For example, we all remember Bill Clinton perjuring himself by saying, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” Of course, Bill was lying which helped lead to the House voting to impeach him. The Senate attempted to follow suit and although 50 Senators voted for impeachment, they didn’t reach the 67 vote threshold needed to send Clinton home in disgrace. What you may not remember was the...

    Donna Brazile, who managed Vice President Al Gore's presidential campaign two years ago, sent a memo to Democratic lawmakers last month warning that they need to do more to reach out to African-Americans or risk losing their support in coming elections. "The Republicans are in the House," Brazile said in the controversial memo, quoted in Sunday editions of New York's Newsday. "They came in through the window and they want to play." The former Gore official, who now heads up the Democratic National Committee's Voting Rights Institute, urged party officials to "roll up their sleeves and box (the GOP)...

By Laylan Copelin AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF Updated: 10:26 p.m. Thursday, March 10, 2011 The judge who sentenced former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to three years in prison removed himself Thursday from the upcoming trial of two DeLay associates, John Colyandro of Austin and James Ellis of Washington. A few hours later, Senior District Judge Pat Priest denied DeLay's motion for a new trial, kicking off DeLay's appeal of his felony conviction. In those two separate actions, Priest apparently...

    National Review Online ^ | 07 Nov. 2002 (original) | Byron York
    Today a team of Republican election experts is in South Dakota, looking into the circumstances of Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson's extraordinarily narrow, last-minute victory over Republican candidate John Thune. While it is certainly possible that there were no significant irregularities involved in the voting, some Republicans are puzzled by the way the vote-counting unfolded. Early Wednesday morning, with 99.65 percent of South Dakota's precincts reporting, Thune held a narrow lead over Johnson. It was only when the last three precincts (out of a total of 844) were counted that Johnson finally edged ahead. What has made some Republicans suspicious is...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Suspended Broward Supervisor of Elections Miriam Oliphant has been charged with 55 counts of violating election laws. Oliphant, already facing a Senate trial for her conduct in office, is accused of not opening polls on time and not keeping them open late enough during the September 2002 primary. The Florida Elections Commission levied the charges against Oliphant at its Feb. 19 meeting. If found guilty, Oliphant faces a fine of up to $55,000. She has 30 days to respond and can choose to appear in administrative court or in front of the Elections Commission. Oliphant, a...

    NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - One month before the second anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedy, the broadcast networks seem set to change the tone of their coverage of that event from focusing on the event itself and the memorials to looking more at policy issues in the aftermath of the attacks. The exact extent of the coverage is still uncertain as the networks await to hear from New York, Washington and Shanksville, Pa., on their plans for the day, but it is highly unlikely that ABC, CBS and NBC News will repeat their 2002 menu of broad live coverage...

    In the 2002 elections, Brit Hume ran a brief clip of a New Jersey congressional (senate?) candidate (I think either a Libertarian or a Green) who, when asked about how he would solve the U.S.'s energy problem, said in all seriousness that he would accelerate the transfer of UFO technology to the private sector from the govt. Does anyone know this fellow, or have a link to his statements?

A crew of paid workers storms through predominantly black neighborhoods and coaxes, cajoles, or browbeats every registered voter to the polls. It's a form of political activity that was well-known in the big-city, white-ethnic machines of the past but has only recently emerged as a key to black turnout."...

    Just heard an interview on Fox. They had an automated pollster as a guest. I'm sorry I missed his name.Using automated polling, the pollster can reach as many as 500 people per day, and 15,000 - 2,000 people per issue. They did a poll after 2002 to find out who voted Democrat or Republican, and why. Accordoing to this pollster, America is heading into a new GOP generation. It turns out investors account for 65% of the population, and that 65% voted Republican. The more people invest, the more they vote

    More arrests possible Iberville Parish council member Howard Oubre surrendered to Plaquemine Police Thursday. Howard Oubre Detectives say Oubre paid people $3 to $10 to vote for certain candidates in September's absentee voting. Those candidates were not involved in the alleged vote-buying schemes, according to police. Three others were booked on voter bribery charges -- Terry Wayne Baker and Geraldine Belony of Plaquemine and Victoria McKnight of Baton Rouge. Elections Fraud investigator Gregory Malveaux says his office received complaints of voter bribery in September and immediately began investigating. Oubre was booked on seven counts of voter bribery. It is a...

    CNN | 12/12/02
    The CNN anchor this morning was "interviewing" Bill Schneider about the Trent Lott statements. The anchor stated this calls the Republican effort to reach out to minorities into question AND went on to state that Bush "badly handled" both the Bob Jones University and South Carolina confederate flag issues during the 2000 election. The anchor then said we can only wonder how the 2002 election results would have been different if Lott's remarks had come BEFORE November 5th! Bill Schneider readily agreed.So it is established fact on CNN that Bush handled those two issues "badly" in 2000? And apparently the...

    Capitol Hill ( - The day before balloting begins in Louisiana's runoff election for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Mary Landrieu, polls showed Landrieu and her challenger, Republican State Elections Commissioner Suzanne Haik "Suzie" Terrell, in a statistical tie. A Mason-Dixon poll Monday showed Landrieu leading Terrell 48-43 percent. But that was before President George W. Bush visited the Pelican State Tuesday. Bush remarked that the last time he had been to the state was on Sept. 11, 2001, and said that memory caused him to again be thankful for the freedoms all Americans enjoy. "So I'm...
