    On this day in 1959, rising American rock stars Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson are killed when their chartered Beechcraft Bonanza plane crashes in Iowa a few minutes after takeoff from Mason City on a flight headed for Moorehead, Minnesota. Investigators blamed the crash on bad weather and pilot error. Holly and his band, the Crickets, had just scored a No. 1 hit with "That'll Be the Day." After mechanical difficulties with the tour bus, Holly had chartered a plane for his band to fly between stops on the Winter Dance Party Tour. However, Richardson,...

    "Boehner allegations fast & furious, but also false." When I first came across these allegations, I was confident they were not true. I have hunted with John Boehner; had in-depth discussions with John concerning our Second Amendment rights; studied his politics; and have a clear understanding of how he views our God-given right to keep and bear arms. With all this in mind, I called his office to inform him of what had been published about him, in relation to the House Oversight Committee's Fast and Furious hearings. I also asked for some information to share that would help my...

    BATON ROUGE -- Attorney General James "Buddy" Caldwell plans to switch his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican this week, according to multiple sources who spoke on condition of anonymity. Caldwell, who is up for re-election this year, becomes the latest in a long line of conservative Louisiana Democrats to leave the party. His departure will leave U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu as the lone Democratic statewide elected official. As recently as 2004, Democrats held both Louisiana's U.S. Senate seats, as well as six of the seven statewide constitutional offices. First elected in 2007, Caldwell was the only Democrat to join...

On board were some exhausted and stinky rock ’n’ rollers and their harried manager. The Winter Dance Party tour had just finished its ninth gig in as many days and was headed for Appleton and Green Bay, Wis., for two shows that Sunday.

They are rock mountains that nobody has climbed. The diversity of Buddy's music is also profound. "Moondreams" and "True Love Ways" are musically as advanced as anything by the great popular composers. Gershwin or Berlin would have marveled at these compositions. His electric guitars were raw, but controlled like bullwhips. They jingle and jangle freely in "That'll Be the Day" and "Oh Boy," and they snake...

    [Note: Kausfiles received the following from a gravelly-voiced outdoorsman in Arkansas who refused to give his name.] "It was strictly an accident. The dog just darted out." That is what the media wants us to believe about the death of Buddy, Bill Clinton's 4-year-old Labrador retriever. (See "Who Is Buddy?" Wall Street Journal, Dec. 1997.) But is the truth about this—the latest Clinton casualty—that conveniently simple? What do we really know about Buddy's death? Who stood to benefit? Consider the following: On Dec. 19, 2001 Clinton has a meeting in his Harlem office to discuss ways to repair his ...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

Mulvaney's attorney collected 19 statements from Orlando residents, including some who said Dyer's paid campaign worker, Ezzie Thomas, either filled out their absentee ballots for them, took completed ballots in unsealed envelopes or urged them to mark their ballots for Dyer.

    The state's top law-enforcement agency on Tuesday intensified its investigation into Orlando's March elections, saying the probe into potential voting irregularities and fraud could result in racketeering charges. The decision to move forward with the investigation was made after Florida Department of Law Enforcement representatives reviewed its evidence, including seized absentee-ballot envelopes, with the State Attorney's Office. The FDLE would not confirm the focus of its investigation, but said it included Mayor Buddy Dyer's race for re-election. Dyer avoided a runoff with his closest opponent, political newcomer Ken Mulvaney, with just 234 votes to spare.
