Roberts objects to certification of USCF elections by [email protected]
Harold Winston (co-chair USCF bylaws committee) I object to the certification of the 2013 USCF elections based on this email tonight I have received from the USCF moderators threatening me. I do not think the elections are fair when you folks can post on the forums, and I or Sam Sloan can’t post. Here is the threat: "If you're unwilling to address the issues with post #257879" I am...

Did Susan Polgar and Paul Truong Release the Mottershead Report by samsloan
I am inclined to believe the theory that it was actually Paul and Susan who released the Mottershead Report. Here are two people who want publicity and who thrive upon it. Look at Susan's blog from that period. You will often see such statements as "Susan attended such-and- such event and here are one thousand pictures of Susan from that event". How many other people truly feel the need to post...

The Unmentionable Polgar and Truong by samsloan
I could be mistaken about this but as I recall Tim Redman sided with those two unmentionable people at least for a long time. He is certainly mistaken if he believes that they could have quietly been convinced to leave. At the mediation at the San Francisco Federal Courthouse in July 17-19, 2009, they were demanding that the USCF pay them $2 million. I think they later came down to a million...

ED departu We don't need no stinkin' discussion on the Forum by [email protected]
I was just informed that a post of mine was pulled from the USCF Issues Forum as an alleged AUG violation, for the first time ever. My post objected to the pulling of other posts in the thread "ED job listing?". Anyone with two brain cells and a clue about USCF could guess that Mr. Hall's departure was not all sweetness and light, on one or both sides. So it goes: That often happens in such...

World Open has been moved to Arlington Virginia by [email protected]
How's it going Sam, long time no see. I thought I would check in and see who's still around other than you of course. :) Any word on who is winning (or won) the U.S. Championship in St. Louis? A friend of mine told me Kamsky dropped a piece in one of his games.

Senate Passes Internet Sales Tax Bill by samsloan
BREAKING NEWS: Senate Passes Internet Sales Tax Bill Here is a great issue for us all to fight. This measure gives the US Government the power to impose a world wide sales tax on all Internet transactions. As usual they name the bill exactly the opposite of what it does. They call it "the Marketplace Fairness Act". In a vote of 69 to 27 Monday night, the U.S. Senate passed the Marketplace...

Did the Boston Marathon Bombers Receive Outside Help? by samsloan
It appears that they had no immediate help in the planning or execution of the bombing. However, it is likely that the elder brother received training in how to build these bombs when he returned to Russia last year. They planned the bomb blasts to occur not at the time when the winners were crossing the finish lines but two hours later when the slow recreational runners were finally arriving....

The Police Did not Kill the Older Boston Bomber - The Younger Brotherkilled his own Brother! by samsloan
Amazing revelation: Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the elder brother, was not killed by the police. He was killed by the younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who ran over him with a car. The younger brother then tried to commit suicide my shooting himself in the next, but was not successful. This murder-suicide plan was probably to protect accomplices who may have provided help in the bombings. Sam Sloan

Militants from Afghanistan Attack Boy Scouts in Chitral by samsloan
It is not only because of the Lowari Tunnel that Chitralis favor Musharraf. Musharraf has been the only Pakistan leader willing to take a stand and fight the militants invading from Afghanistan and taking over places like Swat. This is the reason why the Taliban has vowed to kill Musharraf. He would have to be crazy to show up at a kangaroo court date under these circumstances. On August 27,...

Musharraf Runs for Election from Chitral by samsloan
Sorry. I disagree. I just returned from 11 days in Pakistan. I found that Musharraf is tremendously popular everywhere in Pakistan. Everybody in all areas of Pakistan are talking favorably about his return. Also, the charges against Musharraf are obviously bogus such as the claim that he "murdered" Benazir Bhutto. Everybody can see the videos of Benazir standing unprotected in front of unruly...

New York Times Article about Khalil Nuristani by samsloan
Thank you for this article but it contains a few errors. I visited Nuristan twice, in 1977 and 1978, but these visits were brief as I only spent one night there each time as it was illegal to visit Nuristan without permission. In 1978 I wound up in jail in Afghanistan, escaped, was recaptured and finally released across the border to Torkham Pakistan. I then went to Chitral where I met some...
