The Secret Hellfire Club and the Hellfire Caves
Post Date: 2021-04-01 06:57:40 by noone222
Wharton was a powerful Jacobite politician, writer, a wealthy peer, and Grand Master of the Premier Grand Lodge of England who led a double life as a drunkard, a rioter, an infidel and a rakehell (meaning a man who was habituated to immoral conduct such as womanising, and wasting his fortune through acts of gambling and debauchery). Wharton’s club was considered a satirical “gentleman’s club” (although women are also purported to attend), intended to shock and ridicule religious beliefs through the act of mock religious ceremonies with the supposed president of this club being the devil. The club came to an end in 1721, due to political maneuvering by Wharton’s ...

What was life in ancient Celtic Ireland like?
Post Date: 2021-03-26 21:46:56 by Ada
There is now broad consensus that there never was an “ancient Celtic Ireland.” The belief that Celts from continental Europe colonized Great Britain and Ireland in the last few centuries BC has not held up in the face of recent advances in archaeology, linguistics, and especially ancient DNA research. It is clear from the DNA record that Ireland was continuously inhabited by essentially the same people from the Bronze Age Bell Beaker folk (who arrived around 2400 BC) through the Iron Age and into historic times. The lack of any genetic evidence of an influx of Celts is supported by the absence of Celtic La Tene/Hallstatt artefacts in the archaeological record. Nevertheless, ...

Shock article: the Irish were never intrinsically Celtic
Post Date: 2021-02-17 10:39:44 by NeoconsNailed
Q. How did the Celts go from dominating nearly the entire European continent to having limited presence in the British Isles? What could the Celts have done to remain relevant? A. You are under the false assumption that these Islands and people are the last redoubt of the Celts. The truth is the Celtic identity of Ireland and parts of the UK is largely a 19th. century invention of Welsh linguists What many don’t appreciate is that the idea that Ireland was once settled by Celts has been called into question by many scholars. Archaeological digs offer scant evidence that there was ever any sudden change in culture in Ireland’s ancient past that we would expect to see if ...

On this day, Feb. 11, 1990, Nelson "Bomber" Mandela released from prison....
Post Date: 2021-02-11 13:40:34 by X-15
Let's review why he was tagged with his middle name: SA exile Henri le Riche writes: "Other than the ANC siding with the communists during the Cold War, why did UK prime minister Margaret Thatcher and US president Ronald Reagan call the ANC a terrorist organisation? I will let the current US president, Barrack Obama, answer that question. After the April 16 2013 bombing at the Boston Marathon he said: "Any Time Bombs Are Used to Target CIVILIANS It Is an Act of Terror". The ANC had an easy choice: Fight soldiers, or take the easy cowardly option terrorists worldwide take,and that is target civilians.. THE ANC'S VICTIMS WERE MOSTLY CIVILIANS: 1981 – 2 car ...

The Last Time the D.C. Establishment Labeled its Political Opposition as “Insurrectionists” (And How It Taught Them About “National Unity”)
Post Date: 2021-02-08 09:23:53 by Ada
The Washington establishment, led by a senile 78-year-old man who can barely speak in complete sentences and seems permanently fighting mad, is hell- bent on labeling virtually all Americans who voted for President Trump –Republicans, Independents, and Democrats — as “insurrectionists.” They have invoked the Insurrection Act of 1807 to justify placing thousands of heavily-armed National Guard (and other) troops in Washington, D.C., who appear to be stationed there indefinitely. Comrade Pelosi, who turns 81 next month and also seems demented, always angry as hell, and extremely frustrated that she is not a dictator, has called for the placement of manned machine gun ...

Why Genghis Khan Refused To Invade India
Post Date: 2021-02-06 03:45:07 by Pinguinite
An interesting listen. This pitch portrays Khan as a benevolent military leader instead of the savage and bloodthirsty barbarian horde chieftain that we've all come to know and love growing up.

A Good Reason to Honor Robert E. Lee
Post Date: 2021-01-19 18:01:03 by X-15
Yesterday’s melee in Washington provides good reason to honor Robert E. Lee because he demonstrated how he maintained dignity in defeat while convincing many resentful Southerners to reconcile with their former enemies. At the end of the War Between the States in 1865 he had as much reason as any Southerner to reject reconciliation, but he didn’t do that. To the contrary he promoted reconciliation for the sake of the entire country. Shortly after Lee died in 1870 his family gave biographer J. William Jones personal access to Lee’s letters in the family’s possession. Of this time Jones wrote, “When I had the privilege . . . of examining his private letter-book, I ...
