Ten random things: special 30th anniversary of Richard M. Nixon's resignation edition

Ten people on Nixon's enemies list, with comments by former White House counsel Charles Colson:

  1. Arnold M. Picker, United Artists Corp., New York; Top Muskie fund raiser. Success here could be both debilitating and very embarrassing to the Muskie machine. If effort looks promising, both Ruth and David Picker should be programmed and then a follow through with United Artists.
  2. Alexander E. Barkan, national director of A.F.L.-C.I.O.'s Committee on Political Education, Washington, D.C.: Without a doubt the most powerful political force programmed against us in 1968 ($10-million, 4.6 million votes, 115 million pamphlets, 176,000 workers-all programmed by Barkan's C.O.P.E.-so says Teddy White in "The Making of the President 1968"). We can expect the same effort this time.
  3. Howard Stein, Dreyfus Corp., New York: Heaviest contributor to McCarthy in '68. If McCarthy goes, will do the same in '72. If not, Lindsay or McGovern will receive the funds.
  4. Leonard Woodcock, United Auto Workers, Detroit, Michigan: No comments necessary.
  5. Bernard T. Feld, president, Council for a Livable World: Heavy far left funding. They will program an "all court press" against us in '72.
  6. John Conyers, congressman, Detroit: Coming on fast. Emerging as a leading black anti-Nixon spokesman. Has known weakness for white females.
  7. Samuel M. Lambert, president, National Education Association: Has taken us on vis-a-vis federal aid to parochial schools -- a '72 issue.
  8. Stewart Rawlings Mott, Mott Associates New York: Nothing but big money for radic-lib candidates.
  9. Daniel Schorr, Columbia Broadcasting System, Washington: A real media enemy.
  10. Paul Newman, California: Radic-lib causes. Heavy McCarthy involvement '68. Used effectively in nationwide T.V. commercials. '72 involvement certain.

And just for fun:
