The Royal Caribbean vessel “Liberty of the Seas” sets sail from Miami and calls on ports at St. Maarten, Puerto Rico and Hispaniola (which is what the cruise line calls its private barbed-wire enclosed beach, actually located in Haiti).
On board for teaching sessions are Joseph Farah, Alan Keyes, Jerome Corsi, David Kupelian, and Aaron Klein, all contributors to WorldNet Daily…
The cruise follows the WorldNet Daily “Taking America Back” conference, a three-day extravaganza at Miami’s Doral Resort and Spa (home of the Blue Monster golf course). The conference spans Constitution Day, Sept. 17, and features a current elected representative, Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.); a couple of formers, Jeremiah Denton (R-Ala.) and Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.); and a couple hopefuls (Floridians Allen West, a GOP candidate for the House, and Alexander Snitker, the Libertarian Party candidate running for Senate). And, for all of you who have been wondering, “Where’s Ann Coulter lately?”, the conservative commentator will be on board, too.
I have bolded all of the names relevant to this blog. Jerome Corsi endorsed Chuck Baldwin in his Constitution Party run for President last year. Alan Keyes ran for President first as a Constitution Party candidate, and then created his own party to continue an independent bid when he lost the CP nomination. Tancredo is running for Governor of Colorado on the Constitution Party line. And in a break from the CP, Alexander Snitker is running for Senate in Florida as a Libertarian (although we already reported on his upcoming attendence here).
Don’t worry if you can’t make it for the first trip.
There’s also a Cruise for Liberty in January, on the same ship, packaged by the same company, Sovereign Cruises, and being marketed to “true patriots who are passionately committed to the principles of liberty and freedom as granted to us by the Founding Fathers.” Keyes will be back on board for sharpening and edifying, joined by former Georgia congressman Bob Barr (R) and Gary DeMar, founder of American Vision, which seeks “to restore America’s biblical foundation from Genesis to Revelation.”
The article puts Barr’s party as Republican, but of course readers of IPR know he has been a Libertarian for several years and was the party’s presidential candidate in 2008.
