    Sorry, there is no main body associated with this thread, just links that don't work when I post them here. But... the original U. of Wisc. source url above ( http://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/cgi-bin/GenderStudies/GenderStudies-idx?scope=GenderStudies.DovieHorvitz&type=browse ) does have links that seem to work. Besides, they have a rather ominous copyright warning at the end that I wouldn't want FR or me to run afoul [of]!
  • Memos detail FBI’s ‘Hurry the F up pressure’ to probe Trump campaign

    The Hill ^ | 7/6/18 | John Solomon
    Multiple reviews of whether FBI agents’ political bias affected the Russia-Trump collusion case remain in their infancy, but investigators already have unearthed troubling internal communications long withheld from public view. We already know from FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok’s now-infamous text messages with his fellow agent and reported lover, Lisa Page, that Strzok — the man driving that Russia collusion investigation — disdained Donald Trump and expressed willingness to use his law enforcement powers to “stop” the Republican from becoming president. The question that lingers, unanswered: Did those sentiments affect official actions? Memos the FBI is now producing to the...

    In the middle of directing the difficult task of transferring the historically important records of the Obama administration into the National Archives, the archivist in charge, David Ferriero, ran into a serious problem: A lot of key records are missing. **SNIP** To support this effort, in 2014 President Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments. For the first time electronic government records were placed under the 1950 Federal Records Act. The new law also included updates clarifying "the responsibilities of federal government officials when using non-government email systems" and empowering "the National Archives to safeguard original and classified...

    The official US Archiver of Everything Important will start getting selective about saving tweets in 2018. The Library of Congress is getting picky about saving tweets. I'd completely forgotten that in 2010 the Library of Congress had been retroactively gifted the entire archive of public tweets since 2006 and that it had been collecting them since then. Now that the novelty's over, the LOC said on its blog Tuesday it will follow its usual policy of limiting collection to only tweets it deems significant. In a white paper (PDF) issued during the last week of December 2017, the library stated...

    WASHINGTON - The National Archives lost a computer hard drive containing massive amounts of sensitive data from the Clinton administration, including Social Security numbers, addresses, and Secret Service and White House operating procedures, congressional officials said Tuesday. One of former Vice President Al Gore's three daughters is among those whose Social Security numbers were on the drive, but it was not clear which one. Other information includes logs of events, social gatherings and political records. Archives spokeswoman Susan Cooper said in a written statement that the agency was preparing to notify affected individuals of the breach. The representative of former...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | March 28, 2015 | IBD EDITORIALS
    mailgate: The refusal of State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki to answer a simple yes or no question — did Hillary Clinton sign separation form OF-109? — is proof of a cover-up of a felony by the former secretary of state. You'd think that if Clinton didn't sign separation form OF-109 or was not asked to, the State Department and Team Hillary would have just said so. After all, it would be easier to deflect questions about getting special treatment than acknowledging the committing of a felony by essentially lying under oath with the false claim that you have returned all...
  • "Most Transparent Administration Ever" Is No More: White House To Delete Its FOIA Regulations

    Zero Hedge ^ | 3/17/15
    Lies, lies, and nothing but lies. The lies end now. As reported moments ago, the White House is voiding a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA (incidentally the same act that discovered none of Hillary Clinton's "personal" government-business emails since they were not even stored on government property!) which as USA Today explains, makes "official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject requests for records to that office." And just like that the lie of Obama's transparency is over, and it couldn't come at a worse time for...

    In her Tuesday press conference defending her reliance on a private email system while serving as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton claimed that the "vast majority" of emails were sent to other State Department employees and therefore automatically archived. But State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki on Friday told reporters that it wasn't until last month that the State Department started automatically archiving emails — and it's only being done for senior staff. "Our goal is to apply this [automatic archiving] to all employee mailboxes by the end of 2016," Psaki said, according to Politico. On Tuesday, Clinton said, "It was...

    It’s a miracle on 42nd Street. The long-unseen Christmas episode of WPIX/Ch. 11’s beloved “Magic Garden” children series has magically reappeared and will air Christmas Day at 6 p.m. “We’re beyond excited,” says Rolando Pujol, executive producer of digital, who along with licensing producer Joan De Jesus discovered the show in a forgotten sub-basement at the station’s East 42nd St. offices earlier this year. The show originally aired on Dec. 13, 1981. It may have had a re-airing a year or two later, but then it disappeared. It turned up among several hundred vintage WPIX tapes in a long-ignored room,...

    On July 19, 2004, it was revealed that the U.S. Justice Department was investigating Berger for unauthorized removal of classified documents in October 2003 from a National Archives reading room prior to testifying before the 9/11 Commission. The documents were five classified copies of a single report commissioned from Richard Clarke covering internal assessments of the Clinton Administration's handling of the unsuccessful 2000 millennium attack plots. An associate of Berger said Berger took one copy in September 2003 and four copies in October 2003.

Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said a man called his office last month to report that something was wrong with his girlfriend. Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman’s skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at...

    ANNAPOLIS — The Maryland State Archives collection is among the largest in the country with nearly 400 years of history, including Colonial-era paintings, keepsakes of the state’s governors, and thousands of land, court and genealogy records. With all that history, the Archives has run out of space. The agency first filled its Annapolis headquarters to capacity in 2000, then leased and filled a warehouse. It leased a second warehouse and a third before brokering a deal to store some of its property at the Baltimore City Archives. All of the facilities are now full, and state archivists have been pushing...
  • Abortion foes' wanted posters, Web site are 'true threats'

    AN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court ruled yesterday that anti-abortion activists who created Wild West-style posters and a Web site targeting abortion doctors are liable because their works were illegal threats and not free speech. But the sharply divided 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, while calling the works "a true threat," ordered a Portland, Ore., federal judge to reduce the $108.5 million in punitive damages a jury awarded to four abortion doctors and two clinics who sued a dozen abortion foes. The 6-5 ruling by the full appeals court reverses a March 2001 decision by a three-judge panel...

    Pius XII, who was elected in 1939, has been accused of turning a blind eye to the Nazis’ extermination of the Jews in Europe, including a round-up by the Gestapo of 2,000 Italian Jews in Rome’s Ghetto area in 1943. They were sent to concentration camps, including Auschwitz, and only a handful survived the war. The Vatican has until now refused to release any documents from Pius’s papacy, despite calls for them to be made available by Jewish groups and historians, who in the past have dubbed the Italian pontiff “Hitler’s Pope” and accused him of being anti-Semitic. But...
