    Wim (William) Statius Muller is the National Composer of ABC (Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao, the Netherlands Antilles), now cut off from the rest of the world by Alexandra Venezuela-Cortez's sugar daddy, Nicolas Maduro. Wim was a spymaster, who set up Curacao's intelligence bureau; he worked in Netherlands intelligence during the Cold War. That alone would send Alexandra Venezuela-Cortez' college mobs after him. But as an old white man, Wim is guilty of the supreme crime of Cultural Appropriation. It seems that, from his colonial, Netherlands Antilles upbringing, Wim is an expert composer in the intensely polyrhythmic local music style. And...

    Barack Obama will no doubt be chronicled, among other things, as the first anti-American president. No wonder; he’s the product of an educational system that has become increasingly radical and anti-American with each passing decade, and his mother was a stereotypical leftist anthropologist with a passion for the Third World. The pattern is unmistakable. As Luis Fleischman notes, Obama wanted to make deals with our enemies, Iran being the most dramatic example. But just look at Latin America: The Obama Administration tried to avoid confrontations with anyone it wanted to make a “historic deal” with. Most of these “historic deals”...

Ward revealed on “Today” on Wednesday.

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Ten years after Natalee Holloway went missing, a Dutch citizen says he knows where to find her. Prosecutors, however, aren't buying it. Jurriën de Jong told CNN's Martin Savidge that the teen's body is buried in a crawl space at a Marriott vacation property in Aruba, and he believes he saw her in her final moments. De Jong says he was near Marriott's Aruba Surf Club, then under construction, on the night of May 30, 2005, when he saw a young man chase a young woman through the construction site. At first, he thought the two were being playful,...

    WASHINGTON — The United States is "deeply disappointed" the Netherlands released a former Venezuelan military intelligence chief detained over U.S. drug trafficking allegations, and is "disturbed" at reports indicating Caracas used threats to obtain his freedom, the State Department said on Monday. Instead of being extradited to the United States, retired Venezuelan General Hugo Carvajal flew home on Sunday from the Netherlands' Caribbean island of Aruba after the Dutch government ruled he had diplomatic immunity. He had been arrested on Aruba on Wednesday. Jubilant Venezuelan officials hailed Carvajal's release at a ruling Socialist Party congress, calling it a "victory" over...

    Joran van der Sloot will stand trial beginning January 6 on robbery and murder charges related to a 21-year-old woman's death, a Peruvian court announced Friday. The timetable from the Superior Court of Lima came days after a panel of judges ruled against having the Dutch national face an even more stringent slate of charges, as the victim's family members had requested. Instead, he will face the original charges levied against him -- which, if he is convicted on all counts, could lead to a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison. Van der Sloot is accused of killing Stephany...

    ORANJESTAD, Aruba — Police in Aruba searched a brushy coastal area for seven hours Monday but found no new leads into the case of a Maryland woman who disappeared on the Dutch Caribbean island, a prosecution official said. The officers combed through the vegetation around Sereoe Colorado for the remains of the missing woman, Robyn Gardner, or anything that might link her travel companion, Gary Giordano, to her disappearance. The area that was searched is near the southern tip of Aruba, not far from where Giordano, a businessman from Gaithersburg, Maryland, reported that Gardner disappeared while they were snorkeling on...

    Aruba: Jawbone not that of Natalee Holloway SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - The prosecutor's office in Aruba says a jawbone with a tooth recently found on a beach does not belong to missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway.

Officials said Tuesday that the jawbone is human. It is unclear whom it belongs to. The Mountain Brook, Alabama, student was 18 when she disappeared while on a high school graduation trip...
