    KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) – The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro Moros, arrived in the island last night for a working visit. He was met on arrival at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston by Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Kamina Johnson Smith, among other dignitaries. Senator Johnson Smith said the visit is an important one, and is expecting fruitful talks from a bilateral meeting between President Maduro Moros and Prime Minister Andrew Holness today. The Venezuelan President is also expected to meet with Cabinet ministers.
  • Rep. Jack Kingston: Marco Rubio’s Tough National Security Talk is Cheap

    Redstate ^ | Friday February 19, 2016 | Congressman Jack Kingston
    On the campaign trail, Senator Marco Rubio has been pushing a media narrative that he is the most “serious” foreign policy candidate. It’s an odd position since he missed all but one of the 19 votes connected to the National Defense Authorization Act last year! But far more damaging than his missed votes is his inability to learn from our past national security mistakes. Whether it’s Libya, border security, or major security gaps in our visa and refugee programs, when he has voted, it’s often on the side of misplaced liberal ideals and illegal immigrants instead of America’s One disturbing...

    KINGSTON - A Red Hook man who forced a woman to swallow an abortion pill and strangled her is facing felony charges, police say. Thomas Pfeiffer, 44, was arrested Wednesday after Ulster County Sheriff's deputies responded to a 911 call that came in with no voice from a Rosendale home. An investigation found Pfeiffer was having a fight with a woman and during the dispute he strangled her and forced her swallow an abortion pill, police say. The woman had injuries to her back and throat and was sent to HealthAlliance Hospital in Kingston, where she was treated and released.

    (Newser) – Businessman David Perdue has won the GOP nomination for a Senate race the party cannot afford to lose. Perdue, former CEO of Reebok and Dollar General, narrowly beat 11-term Rep. Jack Kingston in a runoff election in Georgia to become the party's Senate nominee, reports the New York Times. He will face Democrat Michelle Nunn, daughter of former Sen. Sam Nunn, in a race seen as key to control of the Senate for the last years of President Obama's term. Democrats see Georgia as their best chance of picking up another Senate seat this fall, while Republicans need...

    Businessman David Perdue stunned Georgia’s Republican political establishment Tuesday by capturing the party’s U.S. Senate nomination in his first run for office. The former CEO of Reebok and Dollar General toppled 11-term Rep. Jack Kingston by a narrow margin, setting up a battle of political newcomers with famous kin in the fall. Perdue’s cousin, Sonny, was a two-term governor and Nunn’s father, Sam, was a four-term U.S. Senator....
  • 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....
  • Karen Handel to endorse Kingston for US Senate (GA)

    ATLANTA — For all the wrangling between the tea party and establishment conservatives in this midterm election year, key players from both sides are closing ranks behind one candidate in Georgia’s Republican Senate primary runoff. Tea party favorite Karen Handel will announce Wednesday that she’s backing U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston over businessman David Perdue in a July 22 runoff, Kingston’s campaign confirmed to The Associated Press. It comes the same day that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, an establishment titan that spent almost $1 million supporting Kingston in the initial primary campaign, announced another statewide ad buy for Kingston. The...

    I had hoped that Karen Handel would be able to get into the runoff for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. She is a dear friend and was a great candidate. Though underfunded, she tirelessly built momentum in the final few weeks of the campaign. But Phil Gingrey was able to get enough support out of the metro-Atlanta portion of his district that it, among other things, held Karen back. She and Steve are dear friends and I wish the very best for them. Into the runoff, I will support my friend Jack Kingston. Jack is with us a thousand percent...

    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.

    Tom Donohue, President of the Chamber of Commerce, made news yesterday when he said that if Republicans fail to pass amnesty they shouldn’t even bother fielding a presidential candidate. The media is reporting Donohue’s statement as an ultimatum to the GOP – pass amnesty or lose our support. However, there is one slight problem that has been overlooked by the media. The Chamber has been dumping large sums of money into candidates who would not be caught dead backing amnesty on the campaign trail. In fact, many of them are running against amnesty. Here is a breakdown of Chamber spending...

    Late last month, a SurveyUSA poll for an Atlanta television station put establishment Republican congressman Jack Kingston in front of fringe tea-party favorite Republican congressman Paul Broun by eight percentage points in the race for Georgia’s open U.S. Senate seat. On Friday, though, Kingston stood to lose that ground, as both he and Broun released campaign commercials featuring fake telephone calls.

    I am looking at the people running to replace Saxby Chambliss in 2014. Can anyone from GA tell me anything about Broun and Gingrey? Are there others running? I live in Kingston's district, so I know some about him, although we just moved here in 2011. Looking to support the candidate with the best conservative credentials so we don't get another democrat-lite senator. We need to improve our conservative odds this time around. Is there a GA "family values organization" that puts out the voting records of the people who are already in the House, as they do pre-election in...

    A Jamaican teenager said he uncovered buried treasure dating back to the 1860s while working to clear a vacant lot in Kingston. Michael Taylor, 19, was using a sledge hammer to demolish a concrete column in the lot Wednesday discover what appeared to be a vault, he told The Gleaner, Kingston, Jamaica. Taylor called over fellow workers who helped him open the vault. Inside it, they found a vial containing silver coins, a medallion and a parchment paper. "We tried to take up the paper but it just crumble. We saw seven coins and the pendant and we say this...

    Governor Cuomo caved. Our lawmakers lied. After more than a year of fresh air in Albany — led by a governor who passed gay marriage, reformed ethics laws and capped property taxes — the state capitol again stinks. After midnight on Thursday, and behind closed doors, the proverbial three men in a room — Cuomo, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos — cut a deal carving legislative election districts that virtually assures the lawmakers who approved it will be running things for years. Instead of forming an independent panel to create districts that actually represent the...

    Four men including former PNCR Member of Parliament Abdul Kadir were yesterday charged by United States law enforcement officials with allegedly conspiring to blow up the John F Kennedy International airport as well as tanks storing aviation fuel and underground fuel pipelines. Those charged with Kadir are former JFK worker Russell Defreitas, a Guyanese-born US citizen; Kareem Ibrahim, an imam from Trinidad; and Guyanese Abdel Nur. Kadir and Ibrahim were arrested in Trinidad, while Defreitas was held in New York. Up to press time, however, Nur had not been apprehended and was thought to be still at large in Trinidad....

    One day last week at the trial of the Shafia family in Kingston, Ont., as court was hearing a relative describe the small freedoms the teenage girls in that family so hungered for – Canadian friends, makeup and clothes, the company of boys — I found there were tears streaming down my face. They had wanted so bloody little. The thought that their modest desires could have cost them their lives – and that is the central allegation at trial, that in their ordinary rebellion they had offended the family honour and paid for it with their lives – was...

    US government refuses to pay damages for Ferrari F50 destroyed during an FBI joy ride. The US Department of Justice is deploying all of its legal muscle to avoid paying the price after an FBI agent destroyed an exotic car during a joy ride. After nearly two years of trying to recover the money owed by the government, Motors Insurance Company filed a lawsuit against the government seeking the full $750,000 value of the wrecked 1995 Ferrari F50. The vehicle originally had been stolen in 2003 from a Ferrari dealer in Pennsylvania. Motors paid the $630,000 insurance claim, giving the...

    Appearing on "America's Morning News" with John McCaslin and Amy Holmes, Georgia Republican Rep. Jack Kingston urged Sarah Palin to stay clear of endorsing candidates in the primaries. "What she's doing is dividing the Republican Party at a time when we don't need to be divided." Kingston's objected to Palin’s decision to endorse Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel in that state’s GOP governor's race. "Why Sarah Palin decided to get in the race is beyond me. I don't know why she feels compelled to get into primaries all over the country, but fortunately Georgia voters are doing their own...

    U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston has endorsed former House colleague Nathan Deal for governor. Runner-up in the July 20 Republican primary, Deal faces the top vote getter, former Secretary of State Karen Handel, in an Aug. 10 runoff. Earlier, Kingston, a Savannah Republican, had supported his longtime friend and ally Eric Johnson, a former Savannah state senator. Johnson ran third in the seven-way primary. "For those who supported Eric Johnson," Kingston said, "Nathan is the natural fit for the ... runoff." He praised Deal's record on taxes, immigration and curbing Medicaid fraud, as well as his "perfect" score from the American...
