    Secret FBI tapes that accuse Martin Luther King Jr of having extramarital affairs with '40 to 45 women' and even claim he 'looked on and laughed' as a pastor friend raped a parishioner, exist an author has claimed. The civil rights hero was also heard allegedly joking he was the founder of the 'International Association for the Advancement of P***y-Eaters'. The shocking files could lead to a 'painful historical reckoning' for the man who is celebrated across the world for his campaign against racial injustice, according to one biographer. The FBI surveillance tapes detailing his indiscretions are being held in...
  • Secret tapes? “Mayor Pete” jumps into the race — and so does oppo research

    Like so many others who run for president, Pete Buttigieg’s official announcement yesterday came as an anti-climax after having telegraphed the move for weeks if not months. “They call me Mayor Pete,” the Democrat told a home-town crowd, highlighting his “audacity” at running an outsider campaign for the nomination at his young age. See Also: Start your hot-take engines: Mueller report coming on Thursday — and so is Giuliani’s? The actual surprise came in another direction entirely: Pete Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, officially announced his presidential bid Sunday afternoon, hoping to make history as the youngest-ever,...
  • There’s Something On These Secret Police Tapes That Pete Buttigieg Doesn’t Want Released

    South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is officially a candidate for the 2020 Democratic nomination. You wouldn’t think that a mayor of a small city would be in contention, but he’s at the top. His star has been rising since rumblings of his campaign moves were reported. He raised more money than better-known progressives, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). He’s in the top five in terms of those filling their war chests. He’s apparently been well received in Iowa. So, with the 2020 Democratic clown car getting bigger, how do you thin the heard? Well, you attack and it seems the opposition...
  • Steny Hoyer Has Had it With These Freshman Dems

    Let's call them the infamous three. Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are the trio of freshman lawmakers who have dominated the political news cycle this year. Whether it's Tlaib calling the president a "motherf***er," Omar spewing some anti-Israel musings, or Ocasio-Cortez promoting whatever her latest radical progressive policy is (Green New Deal, capitalism sucks, etc.), the media just can't get enough. That's a shame, according to Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), because, as he puts it, they are hogging the limelight from the other 59 deserving Democratic newbies. Hoyer slams Tlaib, Omar, Ocasio-Cortez when asked...
  • Trump foes pounce on ‘secret tape’ with familiar-sounding contents

    Forty-eight hours ago, the campaign of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and the super PACs that supported him had apparently found a cohesive, potent attack on Donald Trump -- that the mogul was a "con artist" who defrauded "the little guy." Any attempt to cohere around an anti-Trump message is gone. For the past 24 hours, Rubio and surrogates have eviscerated Trump for a rambling non-response to a question about endorsements from white supremacists. And for just the last hour, Rubio allies and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) have demanded answers from Trump on BuzzFeed's report that the candidate had more immigration...

    By The New York Times WASHINGTON, Feb. 28 - Doug Wead, the author and former campaign adviser who taped conversations with President Bush when Mr. Bush was governor of Texas, said Monday that he had given the tapes to "the president's counsel." After drawing criticism for his secret taping of Mr. Bush as Mr. Bush was beginning to move onto the national political stage and for his disclosure of a dozen conversations to a reporter for The New York Times, Mr. Wead said last week that he would return the tapes. He said then that he had felt stung by...

    The friend of President Bush's who secretly recorded private conversations with him before his first bid for the White House says he will surrender the tapes and donate proceeds from a book based partly on them to charity. "I was certainly wrong to tape the president without his permission," Doug Wead told The Washington Times yesterday. "I wish I could live my life over and do things differently."

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 19 - As George W. Bush was first moving onto the national political stage, he often turned for advice to an old friend who secretly taped some of their private conversations, creating a rare record of the future president as a politician and a personality. In the last several weeks, that friend, Doug Wead, an author and former aide to Mr. Bush's father, disclosed the tapes' existence to a reporter and played about a dozen of them.

    Audiotapes secretly recorded by President Clinton while he was working in the White House with the ghostwriter of his multi-million dollar memoir could become the subject of a lawsuit seeking their release, lawyers for the public interest lawfirm Judicial Watch suggested Saturday. "You now, in (last week's Newsweek) article they mention the fact that Clinton has 80 hours of audiotapes he secretly made for his book," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said during the group's daily radio broadcast. "I don't recall them telling us about that in court," he added, a reference to the 50-plus lawsuits the lawfirm has filed...
