  • Now You Know: Where Was the Original ‘Smoke-Filled Room’?

    Nowadays, the “smoke-filled room” is mostly just a metaphor—but there was a real room that started it all. Well, sort of. The compelling image of the smoke-filled room, a “place of political intrigue and chicanery, where candidates were selected by party bosses in cigar-chewing session,” per William Safire, arose during the 1920 Republican convention. That year, Sen. Warren G. Harding of Ohio was the come-from-behind nominee for president, selected after ten ballots. According to historian David Pietrusza, author of 1920: The Year of the Six Presidents, the room in question is often credited with the phrase “because the people who...

    The Republican Party of the 1920's swept into power during a financial crisis. Errors in the Fed’s monetary policy in 1919 in kept rates too low to benefit the sale of Victory bonds. The Fed then tightened excessively due to inflation, creating a financial shock and depression from 1920 to 1921. At that time, the Republican Party viewed increasing tariffs as good policy. Thus, during the sixty seventh Congress, the Emergency Tariff Act of 1921 was passed as a temporary measure until a more comprehensive measure could be drafted. Ultimately, Fordney-McCumber passed in 1922, imposing an ad valorem rate of...

    The aura of scandal that has plagued Warren G. Harding, our 29th president, has almost obliterated the substance of the man as a senator and as president. Breaking news that DNA testing may now prove that Harding fathered a child with one of his paramours, Nan Britton, will no doubt play to the stereotype of Harding as a womanizer and reinforce his already miserable reputation as president — a reputation that regularly lands him at the bottom of historians’ lists of our worst leaders. That’s a shame because, unlike the DNA samples from the Harding and Britton families, the reputation...

    After nearly 100 years of rumors and historical speculation, DNA testing has confirmed that President Warren Harding had a child out of wedlock – his only biological child – with mistress Nan Britton. Britton first came forward publically with the claim that her daughter, Elizabeth Ann, was Harding’s daughter in a 1927 autobiography “The President’s Daughter.” In her account, Britton detailed a steamy six-year-long affair with the 29th president, including one encounter in a White House closet, before his untimely death in 1923. At the time of its publishing, the book was met with public ridicule and widely discounted as...

    SO today’s the day. The day we discover whether a black man can become president of the USA. But hang on. According to some chroniclers of the times, America has already had a black president. And it happened in 1920 amidst a form of apartheid as unsavoury as anything coming out of South Africa, a time when lynchings were commonplace, when it was hard enough for a black man or woman to vote, let alone get elected to any kind of office. And those who claimed he was black nodded knowingly when Warren Gamaliel Harding became the first president since...

    NORAD encryption uses fractalization from the oil at Teapot Dome Scandal. The US was using the oil at Teapot Dome for early attempts at "Artificial Intelligence" even in Harding's time. The basis for all US Codes and radio encryption started in WW1 at Teapot Dome Scandal. It was this early work that would eventually lead to the Breaking of Enigma's Code and Japan's "Purple" Machine. There are indications that Harding was not aware of the significance of Teapot Dome when he allowed the drilling rights to be transferred.

    Dirty Politics Had Different Color in 1920 By DOUGLASS K. DANIEL .c The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) - No one called it ``trash talk'' in 1920, yet the sorts of words that swirled around the campaign for president back then would fit neatly with predictions this year of an ugly election. When Democrats questioned how President Bush spent his National Guard years, Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie accused them of waging ``the dirtiest campaign in modern presidential politics.'' John Kerry's campaign then dismissed Gillespie's comments as ``the right-wing smear machine at it again.'' In that early 20th-century contest, GOP...

    FULL TITLE: Genetic test proves President Harding DID father a love child with mistress who he would have sex with in a West Wing closet One of the sauciest legends of the White House has finally been proven true, thanks to DNA testing. Relatives of President Warren G Harding revealed to the New York Times on Wednesday that he did indeed father a daughter in 1919 with his longtime mistress Nan Britton, after receiving the results of a genetic test linking them to the son of the love child. Rumors of Harding's infidelity became tabloid fodder in 1927, when Britton...

    A heavyweight lineup of former national security officials banded together late Tuesday to accuse Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) president Grover Norquist and high-ranking GOP political operative Suhail Khan of connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. The officials authored a 45-page dossier on the issue to Cleta Mitchell, the top lawyer for the American Conservatives’ Union who in 2011 cleared Norquist of the allegations initially brought by former high-ranking Reagan official Frank Gaffney. The signatories include numerous powerful and respected former officials, including former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, former CIA Director James Woolsey, former Florida Rep. Allen West, retired Army Lt....
  • Harding Dies — Coolidge Takes Charge

    Ninety years ago today, on August 2, 1923, President Warren G. Harding died at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, California. It was sudden, shocking, and has been fodder for conspiracy theorists ever since. His wife, Florence—described derisively by some as “The Duchess”—didn’t allow an autopsy, so we’ll never know exactly what caused the demise of the 29th President of the United States. It might have been congestive heart failure, or food poisoning, or even something more sinister. Seen in retrospect, through the prism of the scandals associated with his White House tenure, Harding is usually ranked well toward the...

    Change isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. That’s what most of us have come to realize in recent years, whether the change proposed came from Pres. Barack Obama or the Tea Party movement. Still, most haven’t quite reached the point where we oppose change and fight for stability. Maybe we ought to: Maybe sometimes it is the time for no change. That, at least, was the position of Warren Harding. Warren who? On the presidential roster, Harding is POTUS 43. No, that doesn’t mean he’s replaced George W. Bush: Harding’s “43” is his aggregate rank among presidents. Since...

    Three descendants of Venus' son, who was called West Ford, say that according to a family tradition two centuries old, George Washington was West Ford's father. They hope to develop DNA evidence from Washington family descendants and his hair samples to bolster their case... There is, however, reason to believe that if the child's father was not Washington, it might have been someone closely related to him. The cousins' claim has several elements of truth, enough to set up a historical mystery as to the identity of West Ford's father and to add a new strand to the emerging links...
