    Julian Assange will be addressing the Green Party Convention on Saturday morning. Assange has been heavily involved in the U.S. elections this year, with WikiLeaks’ releasing damaging emails that showed officials in the Democratic party worked against Bernie Sanders’ campaign during the primary.

  • Who Was Ty Cobb: The History We Know That's Wrong

    04/26/2016 6:47:57 PM PDT · by Texas Eagle · 36 replies ^ | March 2016 | Charles Leehrsen
    Ty Cobb was one of the greatest baseball players of all time and king of the so-called Deadball Era. He played in the major leagues—mostly for the Detroit Tigers but a bit for the Philadelphia Athletics—from 1905 to 1928, and was the first player ever voted into the Hall of Fame. His lifetime batting average of .366 is amazing, and has never been equaled. But for all that, most Americans think of him first as an awful person—a racist and a low-down cheat who thought nothing of injuring his fellow players just to gain another base or score a run....

    COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Cobb County is telling a Kennesaw family to apply for permission to park their kids' cars in their own driveway. The Oviedo family got a notice of violation for having four cars in the driveway. The family has relatives visiting and two kids home from college. "I am angry. I am beyond angry. I don't see how the government can tell me whose cars I can park in my own driveway," said Kim Oviedo. They got a visit Friday from code enforcement, acting on an anonymous complaint.

    Among the entries in a 1999 anthology called The Best American Sports Writing of the Century is a profile of Ty Cobb (1886-1961). It was originally published in True magazine the year of Cobb’s death. The writer, Al Stump, recalls the last, bleak days of the great ballplayer’s life and makes him into a bitter, violent, alcoholic monster. In one passage, he describes a visit to the graveyard in the town of Royston, Georgia, where Cobb had grown up. Cobb wanted Stump, who was ghostwriting his autobiography, to go with him, on Christmas Eve, to see where he would soon...

Explaining that he kind of discovered that he was Republican due to his upbringing, he said that the massively negative effects of Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty had the most impact: This was an incentive for the man to leave the home and it’s destroyed African-American families throughout the country.

    On Saturday, Tea Party activists ousted a top ally of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) from a key Virginia chairmanship in Cantor's own district, underscoring discontent Cantor is facing from conservative activists at home. Conservatives mobilized against Linwood Cobb – the powerful, incumbent 7th district GOP Chair who was working with Cantor's top establishment consultants and political action committees to take power away from grassroots delegates – to elect Fred Gruber to the chairmanship. The victory was surprising because Cantor's district, in the state capital of Richmond, is home to much of the GOP establishment machinery that wards off...

    Republicans seized another Democratic seat in the state House tonight in the special election to succeed Rep. Curt Cobb. Trucking company owner Pat Marsh beat Cobb's brother, Ty, handily by a vote of 4,931 to 3,663. That gives Republicans a 51-48 advantage in the House and makes it that much harder for Tennessee's beleaguered Democrats to return to power in the high-stakes 2010 elections. Democrats poured everything they had into this race to hold this seat. Many observers described the election as a bellwether for 2010, a strong indication of just how much Barack Obama's unpopularity here might hurt Democrats...

One new ordinance limits the number of adults who can live in a house.

Because the investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are pending, police did not release information about the Oct. 25 arrests until Tuesday.

Media accounts have linked Ms. McCarthy's firing to the articles, but the C.I.A. has never explicitly drawn such a connection (snip) A C.I.A. spokeswoman, Jennifer Millerwise...

A despicable racist or a generous philanthropist?

Half the people booed him. That's just the way it is...

    The 2004 election cycle was the first time in North Carolina history that State election officials counted out-of-precinct provisional ballots," Wainwright wrote. "To permit unlawful votes to be counted along with lawful ballots in contested elections effectively `disenfranchises' those voters who cast legal ballots." The decision also cited numerous state statutes and election regulations specifically requiring voters to cast their ballots only in the precincts where they reside. Election officials are also instructed by law and regulations to assist voters in casting legal ballots. "It is indeed unfortunate that the statutorily unauthorized actions of the State Board of Elections denied...

    Bloggers trying to fan a recount bonfire in Ohio have discovered a new link on the Kerry campaign website seeking contributions for a "General Election Legal and Accounting Compliance (aka Recount) Fund." Unfortunately, the link is nothing new, having been in place for weeks, a discovery that somewhat deflated hopes that Mr. Kerry will suddenly change course and formally contest the election results in Ohio. His absence from any lawsuit is the big hole in the legal effort to force a recount in the state. There's no question, though, that there's a market out there for election-theft conspiracy theories, and...

But Carr says they have not shown "that they will be harmed irreparably if the recount is not completed by the time Ohio's electors to the Electoral College must be certified." The judge says two third-party candidates seeking the recount can't credibly claim that they garnered enough votes to have Ohio's presidential electors...
