    After 150 years, Jack Daniels has finally revealed that a slave was behind the world-famous recipe of America's most popular whisky. Until now, the story told was that a white moonshine distiller named Dan Call had taught his young apprentice, Jasper Newton 'Jack' Daniel, how to run his Tennessee distillery.

    Counter-Jihad Report ^ | Mar 15, 2015 | Pamela Geller
    Back in 2005, Jordanian journalist Fouad Hussein published al-Qaida’s manifesto. In his book, he outlined al-Qaida’s seven-point plan over a 20-year period: “An Islamic Caliphate in Seven Easy Steps.” Ten years later, we can see how al-Qaida and other Islamic jihad groups have followed this plan to the letter – with remarkable success, thanks to the weakness, fecklessness and willful ignorance of Western leaders.

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | Jun 26, 2016 | Sundance
    After the Orlando terrorist attack Hillary Clinton went into a modified sub surface communication status called “radio infrequent”. Tenuous times require those who communicate via poll-tested and political wind-driven soundbites to move carefully amid unfamiliar terrain. Now, as predicted, after the “anti-globalist” Brexit result, Hillary Clinton goes further into the status of “radio-silent”. Full Stop (stay quiet, stay deep), and stay away from visibility until the consultants can gauge the best course. In modern U.S. elections polls can have two purposes: #1 is to display the current status of any given election. #2 is to provide a preferred media narrative...

There have been several massive disruptions both inside and outside of Donald Trump rallies, and more are promised. Let’s just get one thing out of the way right at the top: This isn’t about Donald Trump. I find some of his rhetoric alarming to say the least, but the left – which means the Iron Triangle of Cry-Bully Revolutionary wannabes, billionaire agitators, and socialism-loving politicians, formerly called community organizers, formerly called race-baiting agitators – you know, like...

    Do I cringe sometimes when I hear Trump say something outlandish? Yes, sure I do, but I know that he's super-intelligent and a street-fighter. He can sort out the myriad of social problems that exist in the US today. Trump gets himself noticed by saying outrageous things but there's so much more to him than rhetoric," says Gerry Dunleavy. If The Donald pops into his hotel and golf resort in Doonbeg, Co Clare today, he'll surely blush. It was 1978 when a young Gerry crossed the Atlantic, eventually settling in the affluent suburb of Winchester, north of Boston. He left...

This week, on the heels of the United Kingdom’s vote to “Brexit” the European Union, the host went with, “I guess you don’t have any money in the stock market.” “The issue got hijacked by a bunch of anti-immigration isolationists who were obsessed with the idea that foreigners are stealing their jobs,” Maher said of the world-changing referendum. “Thank god something like that could never happen here.” The...

    In the wake of Thursday’s surprising Brexit vote and the subsequent, near-immediate collapse of British Prime Minister David Cameron, a curious phenomenon has become apparent: Canadian pundits mostly think the referendum was a disaster. There is very little sympathy here — among an intelligentsia that is heavily Anglo — being expressed for Euroskepticism and the various motivations behind the Leave campaign’s victory. I might have voted Remain myself if my great-grandparents’ generation hadn’t lit out for the great plains, but isn’t there something obviously unusual about our view of the transatlantic frenzy? Canada is a political entity defined by its...

Either he didn't want his freedom, or he wanted to be locked up because any sensible citizen knows you just don't do that. Hand blamed drugs for his crime "fetish."

Lynch keeps making moronic statements and her positions on just about every subject are ludicrius. Where is she headed? My take is that she will step down soon which will put the entire process into "lockdown". She has to make...

Goodson was allegedly the “most culpable” in the death of Freddie Gray and the one officer involved in the incident who might have been convicted on any sort of charges. There are still four more trials slated to take place, however, all of which would grind more salt into the wounds between City Hall and the police force. Should they even continue?

The Harry Walker Agency is a speaker’s bureau, which represented Hillary Clinton.

    In a high-profile speech today, Trump suggested that Clinton’s exposed email server likely created a blackmail file for our enemies to use. Trump: To cover-up her corrupt dealings, Hillary Clinton illegally stashed her State Department emails on a private server. Her server was easily hacked by foreign governments – perhaps even by her financial backers in Communist China – putting all of America in danger. Then there are the 33,000 emails she deleted. While we may not know what is in those deleted emails, our enemies probably do. So they probably now have a blackmail file over someone who wants...

    The greatest achievement in the history of the Muslim Brotherhood has been its successful subversion of the American intelligence community over the past fifteen years or so. Carefully placed agents of the Ikhwan have managed to persuade the Pentagon, the CIA, and the FBI that examining Islamic doctrine and law is not only a form of ethnic and religious discrimination, but also helps to validate the ideology of the “radicals” who commit violent terror attacks in the name of Islam. By some unspecified magical process, any study of Islamic law by the DIA or the FBI would cause the “extremists”...

    As the presidential election inches closer, someone you know might be harboring a political secret: voting for Donald J. Trump. There’s a good chance that you know someone, maybe even yourself, who is secretly voting for Trump. The statements that Trump makes — the name-calling, the personal attacks — have an effect on how voters both for and against Trump perceive the candidate. Some Trump voters are fine with it and think it’s all part of the show. Others find it appalling but perhaps necessary. Washington is pretty messed up. Maybe it deserves Trump.

Look, I told people this from the very start, when I started running Barack Obama is exactly who he says he is. We both are....

    Reddit has announced a change to its algorithm on /r/all, the page that is meant to rank the most popular posts trending across the site’s user-run communities. According to Reddit, the algorithm will be changed to promote more “diversity” on the subreddit. The change is an explicit response to the Islamic terrorist attacks in Orlando, Florida. In their aftermath, /r/all was dominated by posts from /r/The_Donald, the primary community for Trump supporters on the site. /r/all collects and ranks posts on Reddit according to how many “upvotes” they receive from users. A post typically requires several thousand upvotes to reach...

    At least one professor in America does not feel the Bern. University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Professor Jack Stauder says his political and ideological conversion away from socialism and Marxism occurred when he actually witnessed these systems in action. After traveling to more than 110 countries to pursue various forms of research, notably cultural anthropology, Stauder described his conversion from Marxism as a process of disillusionment. “I gradually became disenchanted with Marxism by visiting many of the countries that had tried to shape their societies to conform to its doctrines. I was disillusioned by the realities I saw in … socialist...

    The U.S. Air Force Lost 12 Years Of Investigations Thanks To A Corrupted Computer File The U.S. Air Force Inspector General tracks all their investigations on fraud, abuse, and everything else down to office disputes in a database maintained by Lockheed Martin. Now it looks like somebody broke it, destroying data collected since 2004. Defense One and others are reporting that the USAF lost its records of 100,000 investigations in their Automated Case Tracking System due to some kind of file corruption that neither Lockheed Martin or the Air Force have been able to figure out. Apparently Lockheed Martin spent...

    Whenever a situation happens where the blame can be laid at the feet of the Republcians we are constantly told "It's your fault, your actions made them respond this way." For example, Trumps "incendiary" speech causing more people to join ISIS or our actions in the Middle East causing the 9/11 attacks. Information that the Muslim that killed 50 people in a gay nightclub was a closet gay man whose pent up feelings of self loathing drove him to kill when he saw two men kissing. Given the standard set by the Left (your actions made them respond this way),...

Obama met with his National Security Council in the Diplomatic Room at the Treasury Department this morning, ......... "For a while now, the main contribution of some of my friends on the other side of the aisle have made in the fight against ISIL is to criticize the administration and me for not using the phrase 'radical Islam.' That's the key, they tell us. We cannot beat ISIL...

    On Sunday, even after the FBI hinted the presence of a link to radical Islam, the panel on ABC’s This Week blamed the terrorist attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida on heated election rhetoric and guns in America. “I think we all ought to pause with what happened in Orlando today,” stated ABC’s Matt Dowd when asked if third party candidates could gain supporters, “And if we understand that all of the hateful thoughts become hateful words become hateful actions.” Dowd continued, “And now, maybe in the course of this, after what happened, the temperatures will go down...
