    In 1811, Tecumseh, the native American confederacy leader, and his men faced the United States military lead by William Henry Harrison. The battle at the Tippecanoe River ended in a defeat for Tecumseh and resulted in the death of his brother, Tenskwatawa. The battle meant to defend their territory from an aggressive American expansion to the west ended up in a horrific defeat for the Native Americans. Tecumseh died two years later in the Battle of the Thames in an effort to help the British in defeating the Americans, resulting in the collapse of the Native American confederacy. This is...

    Robert F. Kennedy’s granddaughter reportedly died of an apparent drug overdose at the family’s Cape Cod compound on Thursday — the latest in a long line of tragedies to rock the storied family. Saoirse Kennedy Hill, 22, was staying at the sprawling Hyannis Port, Mass., home of her grandmother, 91-year-old Ethel Kennedy, RFK’s widow. By the time medics arrived to the Marchant Avenue mansion at about 2:30 p.m., the young Kennedy was already in cardiac arrest, the Hyannis News reported. She was rushed to Cape Cod Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The New York Times said the suspected cause...

    HYANNIS PORT, Mass. - A 22-year-old granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy died Thursday at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, the family said in a statement.

The Kennedy family released a statement on Thursday night, following reports of a death at the family's compound in Hyannis Port. The statement was issued by Brian Wright O'Connor, a spokesman for former congressman Joseph P. Kennedy II....

    I've been thinking about doing this post for a while now, but in the last days it seems to have been calling me to finally say something. As a Christian nation, America had little problem with what to think about the Jews. They were scattered at the time of the Revolution so I'm sure our Founders thought of Israel in a "spiritual" sense as they read their Bibles. But today, we have fulfilled prophesy of Eze 37 sitting on a map for the whole world to see and they are surrounded by every enemy conceivable. The best place to start...

    Most people of my generation are well aware that George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel “1984” was a treatise on totalitarian socialism or, as Orwell put it, “oligarchical collectivism.” In the novel, the all-powerful State was the sole arbiter of reality, even to the stunning degree that cold, hard facts relating to just about anything could be summarily denied. If the State said that two plus two equals five, then two plus two became five. Sadly, this is what we are seeing develop in the Western world at present, even more insidiously than in Orwell’s time, when this writer and many...
  • Witnesses recall car crash that destroyed Augusta's 'Haunted Pillar'

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Augusta's famous Haunted Pillar on the corner of Broad Street and Fifth Street has a legend for being cursed. But the site is much less eerie after a car crash brings the 10-foot tower crumbling down Sunday morning. The popular tourist attraction, known for its urban legend and long history near Downtown Augusta, is actually being credited for possibly saving a life. "It didn't really kick in until I talked to the officer," says an awestruck Cory Tyler. "After that, I realized it was the Haunted Pillar." A haunting piece of Augusta history is not looking...
  • Is Barack Hussein Obama the campaign manager for the re-election of German Chancellor Angela Merkel?

    Breitbart  In her first major address since announcing her intention to seek a fourth term, the German chancellor was also heckled and labelled a “disgrace” as she claimed to be “fighting illegal immigration” in Germany.“Something has changed. As globalization has marched on, debate is taking place in a completely new media environment. Opinions aren’t formed the way they were 25 years ago,” she said, according to AFP. “Today we have fake sites, bots, trolls – things that regenerate themselves, reinforcing opinions with certain algorithms and we have to learn to deal with them,” she added.The chancellor also insisted that (what she considers) “hate...

    President Barack Obama’s press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday was a love fest, with Obama joking that Merkel would have his backing if he were a German voter. Asked whether he would like to see Merkel run for re-election in 2017, Obama all but explicitly endorsed her candidacy. “I try to make it a rule not to meddle in other people’s politics. All I can say is that Chancellor Merkel has been an outstanding partner,” Obama said at their joint appearance in Berlin. “Chancellor Merkel is perhaps the only leader left among our closest allies that was...

    On his visit to Berlin on Thursday, outgoing US President Barack Obama expressed his gratitude towards Chancellor Angela Merkel and said he would vote for her, if he were German. “If I were here, if I were German and I had a vote, I’d support her,” Obama said during a joint press conference with the Chancellor. “I don’t know if that helps or hurts.” Merkel herself said that she would decide on whether to run for a fourth term at an “appropriate time”. …

Sean Penn will now be the "ambassador at large" for the Caribbean nation.

    An immigrant group based in Bern has called for the emblematic white cross to be removed from the Swiss national flag because as a Christian symbol it "no longer corresponds to today's multicultural Switzerland." Ivica Petrusic, the vice president of Second@s Plus, a lobbying group that represents mostly Muslim second-generation foreigners in Switzerland (who colloquially are known as secondos) says the group will launch a nationwide campaign in October to ask Swiss citizens to consider adopting a flag that is less offensive to Muslim immigrants. In a September 18 interview with the Swiss newspaper Aargauer Zeitung, Petrusic said the cross...

    Why God Hates Haiti The frustrating theology of suffering. By Lisa Miller | NEWSWEEK Published Jan 15, 2010 From the magazine issue dated Jan 25, 2010 Haiti is surely a Job among nations. It is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere: half its population lives on less than a dollar a day. With 98 percent of its forests felled and burned for firewood, Haiti is uniquely vulnerable to flooding from hurricanes. In 2008 four storms in as many weeks left a million homeless. Haiti has an infant-mortality rate worse than that of many African nations, and its people are...
  • Haitian Voodoo

    01/14/2010 8:58:04 PM PST · by T.L.Sink · 33 replies · 1,482+ views
    Roman Catholicism may be the nominal faith in Haiti but voodoo is the true national religion. Closely related to this is the common practice of santeria, animal sacrifice. The most egregious African superstitions have merged with a superficial and distorted version of Christianity to produce a primordial blend of arrant nonsense that has created a cult of barbarism. Haiti is not the most impoverished and backward nation in the Western hemisphere simply by happenstance. It remains, as it always has, beyond the pale of civilization. And all the romanticizing of the Haitian people by the MSM won't change that reality.

    US evangelical preacher Pat Robertson levied blame Wednesday for the devastating earthquake in Haiti on Haitians themselves, saying that the country "swore a pact to the devil" at its creation. "Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it," Robertson said on his Christian Broadcasting Network show "The 700 Club." Haitians were originally "under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon the third, or whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil," said the 80-year-old former presidential candidate. "They said, we will serve you if you will...

    Most anybody in the mortgage business will tell you that August was a month that will live in infamy: The market was in turmoil, as doubts about the stability of subprime loans spread to other sectors of the mortgage world. How bad was it? A survey of mortgage brokers suggests that one in three consumers who recently signed purchase contracts canceled in August -- up from just 4 percent three years ago, according to the research firm that conducted the survey for Inside Mortgage Finance, a trade journal. The cancellation rate undoubtedly was fed by two scenarios playing out: Many...
