  • 1597: Severyn Nalyvaiko

    04/21/2023 12:51:08 PM PDT · by CheshireTheCat · 3 replies ^ | April21, 2010 | Headsman
    On this date in 1597, Cossack Severyn Nalyvaiko was publicly quartered in Warsaw. Nalyvaiko organized “unregistered” Cossacks in Poland’s eastern realms, modern-day Belarus and Ukraine, into what became a significant rebellion. (Poland’s efforts to “register” and thereby control Cossacks would continue to cause tension in the years ahead.) The Poles outmuscled him, and here he is. However, because longer-term historical trends were not so favorable to the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Nalyvaiko rates a place as an early independence martyr for (east) Slavic resistance to Warsaw’s Polish imperialism. Not only does he get a spot on present-day Ukrainian coinage (as pictured); 19th...
  • 1782: Captain Joshua Huddy

    On this date in 1782, Captain Joshua Huddy of the revolutionary New Jersey patriot militia was summarily (and extrajudicially) hanged on the New Jersey coast by the British Tories. Huddy was a troublesome rascal in civilian life, a regular denizen of courts in his native Salem, Mass., and (upon transplant in 1778) Monmouth County, N.J. Tory British Loyalists found him troublesome in the bare-knuckled revolutionary conflict in Monmouth, “often engaged in raids and revenge executions, which continued even after the war’s end.” Huddy mounted various guerrilla raids in the area from 1779; his Loyalist opposite number actually captured him in...
  • Mobster Whitey Bulger's nephew visited the WHITE HOUSE while Biden was vice president: Hunter's associate who concocted China deals met with top aide

    A business associate of Hunter Biden with ties to the Mob and China scored an official visit to the White House under the Obama administration. **SNIP** Visitor records show Bulger met with Anne Marie Person, one of Biden's aides from his stint as Barack Obama's right-hand man, on August 25th of 2016. Before joining the then vice-president's team, Person previously worked for a shadowy investment firm run by Hunter Biden. But it is unclear whether the self-styled fixer managed to secure meetings with any other White House staffers. Bulger has been a regular adviser to the current commander-in-chief's son on...

    A top official of the National Security Council was fired last month after arguing in a memo that President Trump is under sustained attack from subversive forces both within and outside the government who are deploying Maoist tactics to defeat President Trump’s nationalist agenda. His dismissal marks the latest victory by National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster in the ongoing war within Trump’s White House between those who believe that the president is under threat from dark forces plotting to undermine him, and those like McMaster who dismiss this as conspiratorial thinking. Rich Higgins, a former Pentagon official who served in...

    Amid the revelations of boxes of classified documents found to be in President Biden’s possession from days when he was a vice president and a senator is a new group of documents that are at the University of Delaware. And, the transfer of the boxes of documents, which began in 2010 and had dubious aspects, did not happen until 2012. Now as the strange aspect are coming to light, some are calling for transparency as to the documents, what they contain, and the specifics of the timeline during the transfer of the boxes.

    “In December 1944,” begins Sim Kessel’s Holocaust memoir, “I was hanged at Auschwitz.” He was twenty-five years old and had been caught attempting to escape. Sim Kessel (called “Sam” in some accounts), a French Jew who boxed professionally, had been at Auschwitz for two years — a staggering period of time where the normal lifespan of a prisoner was at most three months — and had already escaped the gas chambers on two occasions. The first time, he was in the infirmary recuperating from a severe beating and torture at the hands of the SS (one of his fingers had...

    Former President Obama said on Thursday that voters learned from Democrats’ losses in the 2010 and 2014 midterm elections that a party losing control of Congress in the midterms can limit a what a president can accomplish. Obama told Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show” that voters might have thought during those two midterms that the stakes were not high because he was the president.

    NTD ^ | 10/5/2022
    Special counsel John Durham and his team cannot tell jurors about how the primary source for the anti-Donald Trump dossier has had links to Russian intelligence, a U.S. judge ruled on Oct. 4. The FBI opened an investigation into Igor Danchenko, the dossier source, after a colleague of Danchenko’s tipped off authorities, saying Danchenko had said he could get the person money in exchange for classified information. The FBI investigation advanced after agents learned that Danchenko had been in touch with the Russian embassy and known Russian intelligence officers and had in the past been interested in becoming a Russian...

    Remember the FAKE Swyne Flu Hysteria the WHO created? They tried to memory hole it. OOPS, the truth is back. (snip)...As it turns out, the World Health Organization (WHO) has been involved in “sky is falling” and the “pandemic is killing us all” rhetoric before. A Forbes article from 2010, “Why The WHO Faked A Pandemic,” detailing the WHO’s actions in what one epidemiologist declared was a “false pandemic” was removed from their site, but retrieved and recently posted online by Scott Jackson III (@ScottJa93317027 on Twitter).

    Dmitry Medvedev dining in San Francisco tonight Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is on a friendly visit to the Bay Area before flying across the country to meet with President Barack Obama, and he comes in peace. Which must be why he brought along the flagship of the Russian Navy's Pacific Fleet, the nuclear-capable missile cruiser Varyag. Makes total sense. Medvedev will be dining with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and former Secretary of State George Schultz Tuesday night. On Wednesday, he'll be visiting technology companies including Twitter, Apple, Google and Cisco Systems, in part to promote an "innovation center" modeled on Silicon...

    Oct. 20, 2010— -- When you're President of the United States, you can lose a vote, you can lose popular support, and you can lose a round of golf. But you're never, ever supposed to lose the biscuit. That's what they call the card the president is meant to keep close at hand, bearing the codes that he has to have in order to launch a nuclear attack. And for several months during the Clinton administration, a former top military officer says they lost the biscuit. Watch "World News with Diane Sawyer" for more on this story tonight on ABC....

    The seditious conspiracy charges brought by the Justice Department on Thursday against the leader of the Oath Keepers and other members of the right-wing group signal the government is prepared to take on an ambitious fight to show that they joined the Jan. 6, 2021, attack as part of a coordinated effort to deny President Biden the White House. The indictment contains the first sedition charges that have been brought following the riot and mark a significant escalation in prosecutors’ efforts by drawing a connection between the physical acts of mayhem that day and the broader effort by former President...

    Special Counsel John Durham’s prosecution of Igor Danchenko, the Russian national who served as Christopher Steele’s primary sub-source, will soon heat up—maybe as early as next week, if prosecutors are wise and return to the grand jury to obtain the documents the Hillary Clinton campaign wrongfully withheld based on attorney-client privilege. Those documents will likely reveal Fusion GPS peddled Danchenko’s lies directly to reporters. The jury’s acquittal of former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann after less than a day of deliberations represented a setback to Durham’s three-year investigation of the Russia collusion hoax. Americans nonetheless learned much from the prosecution,...

Pamela Geller organized the Draw the Prophet event as a response to Islamic demands that Western Civilization submits to Islamic censorship. The particular demand was no one would be allowed to draw images of the Prophet Mohammed or to mock him or make fun of him. The infamous attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris had occurred just five months earlier, by two Islamists...

    **SNIP** How Epstein entered Clinton’s orbit remains unclear. When the president released his initial statement on Epstein, he did not explain the multiple other trips he appears to have taken on the financier’s plane—including one flight to Westchester with Epstein, his alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell, and an “unnamed female.” Clinton also failed to mention the intimate 1995 fundraising dinner at the Palm Beach home of Revlon mogul Ron Perelman, where Clinton hobnobbed with the likes of Epstein, Don Johnson, and Jimmy Buffett. (Nearby, at Epstein’s own Palm Beach mansion, the money man allegedly abused hundreds of underage girls.) The two...

Rodney Joffe, former senior vice president at Neustar, coordinated in 2016 with Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, who was indicted last year for allegedly concealing his clients, including Hillary Clinton's campaign and Joffe, from the FBI in September 2016 when he pushed debunked claims of a secret back channel between the Trump Organization and Russia's Alfa Bank. Alfa Bank filed a "John Doe" lawsuit and deposed Joffe in...
