    Daily Telegraph ^ | September 7, 2014 | Staff
    THE search to uncover the identity of Jack the Ripper appears to be over. DNA on a shawl found near one of the victims, Catherine Eddowes, reportedly contains a match to both her and one of the chief suspects, Aaron Kosminsky. The Polish hairdresser, who moved to England with his family in 1881, was committed to a mental asylum at the peak of Ripper hysteria. Is this Jack the Ripper? Revealed? ... DNA evidence reportedly confirms that Aaron Kosminski is Jack the Ripper. Picture: Supplied The breakthrough came when Dr Jari Louhelainen, an expert in historic DNA, was commissioned to...
  • Karen Handel to endorse Jack Kingston in Georgia Senate race

    05/28/2014 3:14:05 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 12 replies
    Former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel said late Tuesday she will endorse Rep. Jack Kingston’s Senate bid. Handel’s endorsement will come at a Kingston event at 1 p.m. on Wednesday. The Savannah Republican hopes that the tea party forces that helped Handel finish third in last week’s runoff could shift their allegiances to his camp. Kingston faces businessman David Perdue, the top vote-getter in the GOP primary, in a July 22 runoff that will be the longest - and likely costliest – in state history. Handel’s endorsement should come as little surprise to close watchers of this rollicking race....

    Laura Ingraham hosted Jack Kingston. Ingraham praised Kingston for his stance on immigration as he signed the FAIR pledge. He noted that few voters ask about climate change, but do ask about immigration and jobs. Kingston talked about a Contract with America II which is a six point plan of lower regulations, opportunity, lower taxes. With immigration, he stated that the costs for immigration would far exceed the benefits with comprehensive immigration reform.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – If it isn't fermented in Tennessee from mash of at least 51 percent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels, filtered through maple charcoal and bottled at a minimum of 80 proof, it isn't Tennessee whiskey. So says a year-old law that resembles almost to the letter the process used to make Jack Daniel's, the world's best-known Tennessee whiskey.

    Long after the Empire's collapse, the Union Jack remains an internationally recognized symbol of Britain. But all that could change soon. Scotland, one of the four countries that make up the United Kingdom (along with England, Northern Ireland, and Wales), will hold a referendum on independence this September. If it succeeds, Britain's iconic flag may need a makeover. The Flag Institute, the U.K.'s national flag charity and the largest membership-based vexillological organization in the world, recently polled its members and found that nearly 65 percent of respondents felt the Union Jack should be changed if Scotland becomes independent. And after...

    The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror....

    Fox is looking to restart the clock on 24. The network is looking to bring back the Emmy-winning real-time thriller as a limited series event, Deadline reports. No deals are in place in front of or behind the screen, but Kiefer Sutherland is said to be in early talks to reprise his role as Jack Bauer. Former 24 boss Howard Gordon, meanwhile, would likely oversee the revival, per Deadline. News of a possible 24 rebirth comes just hours after Fox pulled the plug on Sutherland’s Touch. Thoughts? Does this sound like the best or worst idea ever?

    Two weeks after raising its regular quarterly dividend, Brown-Forman (BFB n.a.) declared a special cash dividend of $4.00 a share on Tuesday as it looks to return money to shareholders ahead of the fiscal cliff deadline that could significantly raise dividend taxes. The maker of alcoholic beverages like Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, Southern Comfort, Korbel and Woodford Reserve said the special dividend will be paid on Dec. 27 to shareholders of record on Dec. 12. A slew of companies, including Wal-Mart (WMT), have been moving up the date of their dividend to save shareholders a bundle of money on taxes...

    Two teenagers have been charged with setting a Jack Russell terrier puppy on fire last month in Buffalo. Seventeen-year-old Diondre Brown and 19-year-old Adell Zeigler of Buffalo appeared in City Court Wednesday on charges of felony animal cruelty. Zeigler was denied bail because of a prior conviction. The judge set bail for Brown at $20,000. The 16-week-old puppy was found on fire in a yard on Buffalo's east side on Oct. 29. Named Phoenix by his rescuers, the dog is recovering at an animal hospital with burned ears, an ankle infection, and blistered eyelids.

    The sprawling Kentucky mansion built by the liquor mogul behind Jack Daniel's whiskey is now up for sale for $6 million in Harrods Creek, an exclusive neighborhood of Louisville. 'The Avish,' the stately, columned 20,000 square foot manor, was developed in 1910 by Owsley Brown and his wife, Laura Lyons. Construction on the home was completed in 1925. The name translates to 'Rocky Hill' in Gaelic, which was the name of the family's ancestral home in Ireland.

    MYFOXNY.COM - The cat that gained international attention after being lost at JFK Airport and then being found two months later has died. Jack was on the brink of death when he was found in a customs room at JFK but it was hoped that he would survive after intensive treatment. He was supposed to be on a flight to California with his owner when he disappeared in late August. The veterinarian caring for Jack said more than two months on his own left the animal so severely malnourished and dehydrated. He developed dangerous skin and liver conditions while trying...

    If ever there was a “company town,” it is Lynchburg, Tenn. Jack Daniel’s and Lynchburg have been inseparable since a young man named Jack Daniel came there more than a century ago to learn the art of distilling corn mash into whiskey. He set up shop on the northeastern end of town and the company has never looked to go anywhere else. It produces 23 million gallons of amber gold – about a billion dollars worth, every year. But the company’s deep pockets make it a prime target for a local government that is strapped for revenue – and now...

    We all know the Republican Party has changed in recent years. Tommy Thompson's bid for the U.S. Senate may tell us how much. On Monday, Thompson will incorporate his Senate campaign committee, he said in an interview. That allows him to start raising money, and means a filing of candidacy should follow by early next month. But the real personal and political drama will unfold in the months to come, as the former titan of Wisconsin politics makes his case for a comeback, and deals with questions from conservatives within his own party. "I'm the original conservative," said Thompson on...

    BALTIMORE (AP) -- Disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff has landed a job at a kosher pizzeria in Baltimore soon after his release from prison. The owner of Tov Pizza, Ron Rosenbluth, said Abramoff began working there Monday. He is learning about the business and will eventually help with marketing. Abramoff is an orthodox Jew. He was released this month from a minimum-security prison camp in western Maryland after serving about 3 1/2 years for fraud, corruption and conspiracy. The former Washington power broker's activities led to the conviction of a congressman.

    In his new book, "Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage," Best-selling celebrity journalist, Christopher Andersen, has blown a huge hole in the Obama genius myth without intending to do so. Relying on inside sources, quite possibly Michelle Obama herself, Andersen describes how Dreams came to be published -- just as I had envisioned it in my articles on the authorship of Dreams.  With the deadline pressing, Michelle recommended that Barack seek advice from "his friend and Hyde Park neighbor Bill Ayers." To flesh out his family history, Obama had taped interviews with various family members. Andersen writes, "These...

He did not address reporters as he entered the building flanked by his lawyers. He will likely be booked on one count of misdemeanor assault...

The action, which takes effect in 30 days, means that Thompson will no longer be licensed to practice law and may not apply for reinstatement. Ever.

Read the story here. The same way Democrats can never simply disagree with a Republican without labeling him or her as bad, or underhanded, or corrupt, or acting with an ulterior motive, so goes their interpretation of the poll numbers. Racism, for example, must be the reason the polls are as tight as they are. Add to that the fact that Republicans are masters in...

He arrived with evidence from his Victorian ancestor revealing the Ripper’s true identity. Jack the Ripper was never caught and his identity has remained a mystery for 120 years, feeding a whole ‘industry’ that...

    Michael Jackson's love for little people knows no bounds. The Gloved One is reportedly scouting around Ireland for an estate where he can open an amusement park with - no joke - a possible leprechaun theme. "Michael is deadly serious about this idea," an anonymous source told The Irish Daily Mirror. "He loves the whole idea of leprechauns and the magic and myths of Ireland." The source, who estimated the park would cost around $635 million, added that Jacko has "always wanted to open his own theme park and he thinks Ireland is the perfect place and it will be...

    NEW LONDON, Conn. -- Jack Kemp will hit the campaign trail with a fellow former vice presidential candidate from another party: Sen. Joe Lieberman. Lieberman said Tuesday that Kemp, a Republican former congressman and U.S. housing secretary, telephoned to offer support to his independent campaign, which the three-term senator began after losing the Democratic primary to Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont. No date for the visit has been set. "We've worked together for years on some good projects that got done," Lieberman told reporters while campaigning in New London. Kemp was former Sen. Bob Dole's running mate in 1996. Lieberman, the...

    Bin Laden's friend Jihad Jack freed by Australian judges By Nick Squires in Sydney (Filed: 19/08/2006) A British-born Muslim convert jailed in Australia on charges of receiving money and an airline ticket from al-Qa'eda terrorists, was freed last night after his conviction was overturned. Joseph Terrence Thomas, 33, nicknamed Jihad Jack after claiming that he had met al-Qa'eda's leader Osama bin Laden three times, was jailed for five years in March. But in a judgment seen as a blow to the Australian government, the appeal court in Melbourne ruled that some of the evidence used against him was not admissible....

    Mr. Murtha has now taken it upon himself to surrender not only for the United States but for Israel as well. He seems not to concern himself either with the nature or the history (www.241.savethesoldiers.com) of our enemies. First, the idea that reasoned human beings would advocate that a party enter into any agreements with individuals who refuse to acknowledge their right to exist, and whose charter calls for their genocidal destruction defies logic and common sense. Second, any cursory review of the propaganda and rhetoric of Israel's enemies, thesame enemies that threaten the United States and the civilized world...

    When former US President Jimmy Carter kicked off his son’s campaign for the Senate, junior was being sent to the rescue, he said because of the "illegal" spying campaign by the Bush Administration. Jack "Chip" Carter, running against Republican Senator John Ensign, for the State of Nevada is the last one who needs anyone spying on him.

    Congressman Jack Murtha, D-Penn., said Wednesday night that the U.S. military was deliberately and indiscriminately killing innocent civilians in Iraq - much the same way, he added, that American pilots did during World War II. Asked about his crusade to expose the alleged massacre of an Iraqi family in Haditha last November, Murtha told Fox News Radio's Alan Colmes: "When this comes out, it's going to be much worse than" the initial reports. Could the Haditha episode be characterized as "the indiscriminate, deliberate killing of civilians?" Colmes asked. "From everything I've seen," said Murtha, "that's exactly what it was. ......

    WASHINGTON - Not long after columnist Jack Anderson's funeral, FBI agents called his widow to say they wanted to search his papers. They were looking for confidential government information he might have acquired in a half-century of investigative reporting. The agents expressed interest in documents that would aid the government's case against two former lobbyists for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, who have been charged with disclosing classified information, said Kevin Anderson, the columnist's son. In addition, the agents told the family they planned to remove from the columnist's archive — which has yet to be catalogued...
