  • Genuine pirate haven: Not like the movies

    06/07/2018 7:21:19 AM PDT · by rktman · 18 replies ^ | 6/6/2018 | Bill Federer
    Spain laid claim to the Island of Jamaica from the time Columbus landed there in 1494. In 1503, Columbus was shipwrecked there for a year. In 1655, Jamaica was captured by British Admiral William Penn, the father of Pennsylvania’s founder. Jamaica was too far from England to defend, so the inhabitants turned to privateers, freebooters, buccaneers and pirates for protection. The likes of Blackbeard, Calico Jack and Captain Henry Morgan, namesake of the rum, attacked Spanish ships and settlements, then returned to Jamaica with their booty. The skull pirate flag, called the “Jolly Roger,” was adapted from the flag of...

    American Thinker ^ | 6/15/2017 | John Steinreich
    The false narrative of Operation Trump-Russia is the latest in a long train of episodes wherein Democrats have actively defended the indefensible. Emerging in the 1820s to counter the Whigs in favor of Andrew Jackson in 1828, the Democratic Party has had an age-old tradition of fighting to advance every bad idea in American history. To their limited credit, Old Hickory's political team have had brief spurts of decency. In their early days, the Jacksonians opposed centralized government, particularly as related to economics. A late 19th-century faction called the Bourbon Democrats, among whom was President Grover Cleveland, championed fiscal responsibility....
  • Will Hillary Return The Property She Got At The White House?

    Breitbart ^ | 20 Dec 2015 | Patrick Howley
    Hillary Clinton bristled during Saturday's Democratic debate when she was asked about her role as First Lady, which put her in charge of the Clinton administration's White House floral and dining arrangements. But perhaps this Christmas season Clinton could actually return some of the items that she and her husband walked off with during their departure in 2001. As the White House's keyboards were losing their "W" buttons, so too was the First Lady making off with an historic haul in the form of gifts and presents from friends. Some actual White House artifacts ended up being part of the...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | June 14, 2013 | Matthew Continetti
    Last week John Nolte of Breitbart observed that the mainstream media had failed to break any of the controversial news occupying Washington. This week Paul Farhi of the Washington Post, without intending to, explained why. There are four stories harming President ObamaÂ’s approval rating, and the heirs of Tarbell and Woodward and Novak uncovered none of them. The long-simmering tale of what happened before, during, and after the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, was all but ignored by media other than Fox until Gregory HicksÂ’ blockbuster testimony before the House Oversight Committee last...

Well, follow me on this. Newt Gingrich, aside from the budget deal in '95 and being made to ride in the back of Air Force One, Newt got along with Clinton pretty well, if you recall, and Newt treated Hillary with respect, even sat on the couch with Nancy Pelosi. Now, there's an accusation out there that Newt wanted an open marriage, just like Bill and...

    Commentary ^ | Dec. 26, '08 | Jennifer Rubin
    Joe Biden blithely declared that there will be no earmarks in the stimulus package. Well, that's because the stimulus package is one gigantic earmark. Obama's transition team is promising that its $700 billion, or $850 billion, or $1 trillion, or whatever it now is "stimulus" won't include pork-barrel spending. By all accounts, the $73 billion wish list may be the largest collection of parochial spending projects in American history. Strolling through the 800 pages, we found such beauties as: $1 million to upgrade the L.A. Convention center "catwalk" for cameras and lighting; $350,000 for an Albuquergue fitness center; $94 million...

    I don't know if this has been posted already, or, if Glenn is the correct source. This was sent to me via email: JOHN GLENN SAID Things that make you think a little: There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq in January. In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January. That's just one American city, about as deadly as the entire war-torn country of Iraq . When some claim that President Bush shouldn't have started this war, state the following: a. FDR led us into World War II. b. Germany never attacked...

    Moonbat Central ^ | 24 September 2005 | Richard Poe
    For nearly two months, Hillary Clinton dodged phone calls, faxes and e-mails from Moonbat Central blogger Rocco DiPippo. Neither Hillary nor her flacks would tell DiPippo whether or not the junior senator from New York supported the so-called International Freedom Center (IFC), a museum which will stand on the site of the fallen World Trade Center. The IFC reportedly plans to desecrate Ground Zero with exhibits on the evils of black slavery, the Jim Crow South, the oppression of American Indians, abuse of terrorist prisoners at Abu Ghraib and other anti-American themes. Last night, Hillary finally broke her silence. "I...

    NEW YORK – A maniacal self-delight has been a keynote of John Lithgow's comic performances – a silvery glee like the silvery toupee that crowns him in the new Broadway musical, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. He stars as a con man-count who fleeces wealthy women on the Riviera, and Mr. Lithgow's own joy in his preening and seducing shifts easily into camp vanity ("Breeding is important – but lighting is everything"). Yet he is actually supposed to be the more debonair of the two frauds in this free adaptation of the 1988 Michael Caine-Steve Martin film. If the effortless Mr. Caine...

    TOKYO (AP) - Former President Clinton said Sunday that his wife, Hillary, would be an excellent choice as the first female leader of the world's most powerful nation. In an interview with Japan's TV Asahi, Clinton said he did not know whether his wife, the senator of New York state, has any plans to one day run for the presidency. "I don't know if she'll run or not," he told the network, but added, "She would make an excellent president, and I would always try to help her." Hillary Rodham Clinton has said she plans to run for re-election as...

    Demonstrations are taking place around the world in protest at a possible US-led attack on Iraq. As many as 100,000 are expected to take part in protests later on Saturday in San Francisco and Washington. Organisers expect the US demo to be the biggest anti-war protest since the Vietnam War. They're just saying that because they want to score some "grass" and hope Jefferson Airplane will come out to play the event - Ivan Other marches are taking place in Rome, Berlin, Stuttgart, Freiburg in Germany, Copenhagen, Denmark; Tokyo, South Korea and Mexico City. South Korea particularly galls me. They...

    BRET STEPHEN'S EYES ABROAD: Last refuge of scoundrels So the man who once said that there was "no anti-Semitic implication in the denial of the existence of the gas chambers or even in the denial of the Holocaust" also thinks America is "a leading terrorist state." Here is where any intelligent discussion of anti-Americanism must begin. The man, of course, is Noam Chomsky, professor of linguistics at MIT and author, most recently, of 9-11, which in just a few weeks has sold more than 100,000 copies. According to Chomsky, "we can think of the United States as an innocent victim...
