Pada Awalnya Pulau Tidung diambil dari nama tempat yang ada di daerah Kalimantan Timur , tepatnya dari desa malinau yaitu "tana tidung"Kok diberi  nama "tidung" kenapa ? karena yang memberi nama pada waktu itu adalah seorang Raja besar dan terkenal di kalimantan waktu itu, dari suku Tidung.

Pada awalnya indonesia masih di jajah oleh kolonial yang bengis dan kejam, siapa yang tidak ingat penjajahan belanda selama 3,5 abad. Yang mana seorang raja ini awalnya diusir oleh kolonial belanda, karena tidak mau diajak untuk bekerjasama dan menjadi anteknya di kalimantan timur ,Hal ini di dasarkan karena ia  seorang raja sekaligus tokoh pahlawan yang tidak ingin di jajah oleh kolonial belanda pada waktu itu. Nama dari Raja pada waktu itu adalah Raja Pandita alias Kaca alias Sapu.

Dalam perjalannanya di usir dari tana tidung, akhirnya raja pandita meneruskan perjalannanya tak tentu arah dan tujuan, mau kemana, ketemu siapa, diliputi rasa bingung yang tak karuan.Sepanjang perjalanan, akhirnya
dia sampai di jepara, setelah itu ia meneruskan perjalanan nya dengan tekad yang mulia ini, akhirnya sampailah ia di pulau terpencil, di pinggiran jakarta, yang sekarang terkenal dengan nama pulau tidung ini.

Hari berganti hari, terus berlalu, hingga berganti bulan dan tahun, yang mana dengan keberadaan raja pandita di pulau tidung itu tidak ada satu orangpun yang tahu kalau dia adalah seorang raja yang pertamakali datang ke pulau tidung itu adalah seorang raja dari kalimantan Timur.Karena raja pandita pergi dari kalimantan timur, tidak membawa gelar sebagai raja, karena waktu itu tidak di dampingi oleh para prajuritnya.Raja pandita pada waktu itu hanya dikenal dengan sebutan "Kaca".
Sampai meninggalnya pun Kaca hanya dikenal sebagai masyarakat biasa yang tidak beda dengan masyarakat lainnya.


Beberapa puluh Tahun kemudian datanglah sekelompok keluarga Raja Pandita dari Kalimantan Timur dan mencari tahu tentang keberadaan raja pandita.Pulau ini mengapa bernama Pulau Tidung? singkat cerita keluarga Raja Pandita dari Kaltim bertemu dengan keluarga Kaca di Pulau Tidung  ketika keluarga Raja Pandita Bertanya kepada keluarga Kaca dan ternyata menurut kelurga Raja Pandita bahwa Kaca adalah nama kecil Raja Pandita sebelum diangkat dari Raja.
dan akhirnya keduanya mengambil kesimpulan bahwa nama Pulau Tidung di beri nama dari Raja Pandita yang berasal dari tanah tidung Kalimantan Timur.

baik dari dalam negeri, maupun luar negeri.

Wisata Pulau Tidung Dan Sejarahnya

From sea to shining sea, or at least from one side of the Hudson to the other, politicians you have barely heard of are being accused of wrongdoing. There were so many court proceedings involving public officials on Monday that it was hard to keep up.

In Newark, two underlings of Gov. Chris Christie were arraigned on charges that they were in on the truly deranged plot to block traffic leading onto the George Washington Bridge.

Ten miles away, in Lower Manhattan, Dean G. Skelos, the leader of the New York State Senate, and his son, Adam B. Skelos, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on accusations of far more conventional political larceny, involving a job with a sewer company for the son and commissions on title insurance and bond work.

The younger man managed to receive a 150 percent pay increase from the sewer company even though, as he said on tape, he “literally knew nothing about water or, you know, any of that stuff,” according to a criminal complaint the United States attorney’s office filed.

The success of Adam Skelos, 32, was attributed by prosecutors to his father’s influence as the leader of the Senate and as a potentate among state Republicans. The indictment can also be read as one of those unfailingly sad tales of a father who cannot stop indulging a grown son. The senator himself is not alleged to have profited from the schemes, except by being relieved of the burden of underwriting Adam.

The bridge traffic caper is its own species of crazy; what distinguishes the charges against the two Skeloses is the apparent absence of a survival instinct. It is one thing not to know anything about water or that stuff. More remarkable, if true, is the fact that the sewer machinations continued even after the former New York Assembly speaker, Sheldon Silver, was charged in January with taking bribes disguised as fees.

It was by then common gossip in political and news media circles that Senator Skelos, a Republican, the counterpart in the Senate to Mr. Silver, a Democrat, in the Assembly, could be next in line for the criminal dock. “Stay tuned,” the United States attorney, Preet Bharara said, leaving not much to the imagination.

Even though the cat had been unmistakably belled, Skelos father and son continued to talk about how to advance the interests of the sewer company, though the son did begin to use a burner cellphone, the kind people pay for in cash, with no traceable contracts.

That was indeed prudent, as prosecutors had been wiretapping the cellphones of both men. But it would seem that the burner was of limited value, because by then the prosecutors had managed to secure the help of a business executive who agreed to record calls with the Skeloses. It would further seem that the business executive was more attentive to the perils of pending investigations than the politician.

Through the end of the New York State budget negotiations in March, the hopes of the younger Skelos rested on his father’s ability to devise legislation that would benefit the sewer company. That did not pan out. But Senator Skelos did boast that he had haggled with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a Democrat, in a successful effort to raise a $150 million allocation for Long Island to $550 million, for what the budget called “transformative economic development projects.” It included money for the kind of work done by the sewer company.

The lawyer for Adam Skelos said he was not guilty and would win in court. Senator Skelos issued a ringing declaration that he was unequivocally innocent.

THIS was also the approach taken in New Jersey by Bill Baroni, a man of great presence and eloquence who stopped outside the federal courthouse to note that he had taken risks as a Republican by bucking his party to support paid family leave, medical marijuana and marriage equality. “I would never risk my career, my job, my reputation for something like this,” Mr. Baroni said. “I am an innocent man.”

The lawyer for his co-defendant, Bridget Anne Kelly, the former deputy chief of staff to Mr. Christie, a Republican, said that she would strongly rebut the charges.

Perhaps they had nothing to do with the lane closings. But neither Mr. Baroni nor Ms. Kelly addressed the question of why they did not return repeated calls from the mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., begging them to stop the traffic tie-ups, over three days.

That silence was a low moment. But perhaps New York hit bottom faster. Senator Skelos, the prosecutors charged, arranged to meet Long Island politicians at the wake of Wenjian Liu, a New York City police officer shot dead in December, to press for payments to the company employing his son.

Sometimes it seems as though for some people, the only thing to be ashamed of is shame itself.
