Patriot Convention

Why I Can Vote With a Clear Conscience

This is the one election that in all of our history is a fork in the road that we had better choose wisely.

This next president will appoint several Supreme Court justices.

That alone should be enough to make everyone sit up and take notice.

If HRC is allowed to stack that Supreme Court, the country is gone.

It is that serious. There is no turning back, none.

We will not have the luxury to say, we can hang for another 4 years.

The communist planks are all in place…

...that ball is at the finish line and just needs that last punt over the goal posts and it is game over.

That one issue will have ramifications for decades.

Your children and grandkids will experience the full weight of that one issue alone.

Blackbeard a local? Book claims pirate from Goose Creek

Via Southern Nationalist Network

Almost everything we know about the origins of the famous pirate Blackbeard comes from a seven-word phrase in an 18th-century book:

"Edward Teach was a Bristol man born."

Kevin Duffus, a North Carolina historian, writer and filmmaker, didn't think that made sense. Why, he wondered, would a man from Bristol name his ship -- the Queen Anne's Revenge -- for a Stuart monarch? Why was his crew largely from the colonies?

And why was he so solicitous of Stede Bonnet, a Barbadian pirate he allegedly had just met?

"For 280 years, people have adhered to that story. But there is no source listed for his information," Duffus said, talking about Capt. Charles Johnson's 1724 "General History of the Pyrates." "Historians don't even know who Charles Johnson is."

As Duffus researched his book, "The Last Days of Black Beard," he found a lot of historical inaccuracies that have been repeated over the centuries. And that led him to wonder if that most basic fact -- Blackbeard's English heritage -- could be wrong.

The investigation led him from North Carolina to London to the Caribbean and, finally, to the Lowcountry.



  1. I read about that. It really is exciting when they find things of that nature.

    I wonder if that's how we will be looked upon in the future?
