By the Numbers, a Failing President

What is the message that the totality of these numbers conveys? -- Democrat and media obsession with Jan. 6, their vast exaggeration of what happened, and the campaign to indict the GOP as a mortal threat to “American democracy” has failed as a strategy. And Biden’s presidency is seen by the people he leads as a failing presidency. -- If the election of 2022 were held next Tuesday, Democrats would be swept from power in both houses of Congress, and a Republican Congress would face a lame-duck President Joe Biden for the next two years.

Biden hammered for saying 2022 midterms 'could easily be illegitimate.' Even CNN's hosts ripped the president's election remarks.

President Joe Biden is facing swift backlash after he said that the 2022 midterm elections could be "illegitimate."

During President Biden's rare press conference on Wednesday, he was asked if the 2022 midterm elections would be "fairly conducted" and the results "legitimate" if Congress doesn't pass voting rights legislation.

Perilous Times

The government should prosecute only crimes that have caused harm, not words and ideas that it hates, for they are protected by the First Amendment that the government has sworn to uphold. Whose words and ideas will the feds prosecute next?

Totalitarian Paranoia Run Amok: Pandemics, Lockdowns & Martial Law

What has unfolded over the past few years has been a test to see how well “we the people” have assimilated the government’s lessons in compliance, fear and police state tactics; a test to see how quickly “we the people” will march in lockstep with the government’s dictates, no questions asked; and a test to see how little resistance “we the people” will offer up to the government’s power grabs when made in the name of national security. -- Most critically of all, this has been a test to see whether the Constitution—and our commitment to the principles enshrined in the Bill of Rights—could survive a national crisis and true state of emergency. -- We have failed the test abysmally.

What East Germany Can Teach Americans about the Current Supply Chain Crisis

By Walter Block

What is happening with our supply chains? They seem very rusty, if not altogether broken. There are numerous ships at several California ports waiting patiently to be unloaded. We are talking thousands, maybe tens of thousands, of gigantic railroad car sized containers, all just sitting there; well, floating there. Meanwhile, our supermarket shelves are sometimes as much as half empty. Grocers are all too often out of the foodstuffs and other things we used to take for granted.

Boiling the Frog

The US began as, very possibly, the most ideal republic ever conceived. Yet, at intervals, over the last 244 years, the original ideals have been stripped away and, in recent years, as it slides toward a very literal 1984, the deterioration has sped up dramatically. Saddest of all, it is occurring with the approval of the now-complacent frogs. -- This is not to say that the US is alone in its deterioration towards a totalitarian state. The countries of the EU and many others of the former “Free World” are also in decline. However, the US does lead the way in its Orwellian surveillance. At this point, the US government does not even deny its surveillance. In Orwellian tradition, they merely state, “If you have nothing to hide, you need not fear your government.” And just as in 1984, that fear is exactly the object. People who live in fear are easily controlled.They stay put and take whatever is dished up.

Wondrous Facts About It's A Wonderful Life

It Wasn't Destined To Be A Christmas Classic
It's hard to imagine it now, but It's a Wonderful Life was a smash hit at the box office, not even returning its $6.3 million budget. Maybe the holiday story about a suicidal man was not what people wanted right after the end of World War II. Likewise, critics found the film to be rubbish, although the Academy had some foresight when they gave the film five Oscar nominations, including Best Picture.

Vintage photos inside the shipyards where the revolutionary steamships were built, 1860-1900

During the reign of Queen Victoria (1837–1901), the British shipbuilding industry experienced great progress. Particularly after the Industrial Revolution, wooden shipbuilding techniques that had lasted for millennia changed radically with the introduction of steam propulsion and iron materials.

Iron was initially used to strengthen parts of the wooden hull and frame, but was gradually used for more components, with some ships using wooden hulls around the iron frame. and others used hulls made of iron plates. These iron vessels can be very large, with a lot of space for cargo.

Early steamships had stern or side paddles that were fitted to the steam engine. Paddle steamers were not suited to the open sea because in heavy seas the waves would lift one wheel out of the water while the other went right down, and this put pressure on the engine.

Phillis Wheatley, America's First Published Black Poet

Phyllis Wheatley lived a remarkable life filled with triumph over adversity. She was the first African-American poet to be published in the New World and the first black woman to become a household name in the fledgling United States, but she had to prove herself over and over again, even in a court of law.

Becoming Philis
Wheatley was only seven in 1761 when she was kidnapped from her home in Senegal, forced on the slave ship The Phyllis, and sold to John Wheatley to become his wife's personal slave. They named him after the ship that took him, and Little Phyllis quickly learned English and got used to his new reality as a slave.

Stunning photos depicting the rebellious fashion at Woodstock, 1969

No one expected the 1969 Woodstock concert and festival to draw a crowd of five million – nor would the gathering become a great testament to 1960s counterculture and a unique event in music history.

Held in the open air at Max Yasgur's dairy farm in Bethel, New York, Woodstock 1969 can now be seen as one of the most important events of the twentieth century.

From site selection to interactions with musicians, concert organizers faced hurdles. Many residents objected to the "lifestyle" of the concert-goers, in particular, their use of drugs and their opposition to the Vietnam War.

The event eventually proceeded, as Friday, August 15, was scheduled through Sunday, August 17, 1969 (the celebration actually ended on Monday, August 18).

Vermont's Captain Thunderbolt: A Mysterious Schoolteacher With A Secret Past

Captain Thunderbolt
Beginning in the 1810s, highways in Scotland, Ireland and England were besieged by highwaymen, robbers who terrorized commuters in the countryside. The two most infamous highwaymen are Captain Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, a.k.a. John Doherty and Michael Martin. The pair had a code of ethics that set them apart from typical thieves: like Robin Hood, the Captain robbed only wealthy travelers, never killed anyone, was polite and courteous, and refused to steal from women. . By 1819, the fuzz was hot on their trail, so Doherty and Martin disguised themselves as Quakers and made their way to Dublin, where Martin intercepted a ship bound for New York City, while Doherty drove to the West Indies. where he intended to drop. Captain Thunderbolt personified and go straight. It appears that he briefly went to the West Indies, then to Canada, and then, perhaps, to Vermont.

“Orders to Kill” Dr. Martin Luther King: The Government that Honors MLK with a National Holiday Killed Him

Very few Americans are aware of the truth behind the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Few books have been written about it, unlike other significant assassinations, especially JFK’s. For almost fifty years there has been a media blackout supported by government deception to hide the truth.

And few people, in a massive act of self-deception, have chosen to question the absurd official explanation, choosing, rather, to embrace a mythic fabrication intended to sugarcoat the bitter fruit that has resulted from the murder of the one man capable of leading a mass movement for revolutionary change in the United States. Today we are eating the fruit of our denial.

In order to comprehend the significance of this extraordinary book, it is first necessary to dispel a widely accepted falsehood about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. William Pepper does that on the first page.

The Murdering Of Free Speech In America

Tyrants have always feared and suppressed speech, and the Democratic Party is lousy with authoritarians who want not to govern but to rule as a single party. We see this in not only their pressure on the private sector to rid them of meddlesome characters who express ideas and make statements they don’t like but in their legislative agenda. They have an insatiable lust for permanent, unfettered control of government at all levels. -- That’s the “democracy” the Democrats keep talking about saving in the next election. They crave it so intensely they’re willing to kill freedom of speech in exchange for a throne.

Another Major Shortage Alert: The Florida Orange Crop In 2022 Will Be The Smallest Since World War II

Over the past couple of years, we have been hit by one thing after another.  Whenever it seems like things may be calming down, another crisis suddenly erupts, and as a result a lot of Americans have developed a really bad case of “crisis fatigue” at this point.  According to Google, crisis fatigue is “a burnout response to prolonged exposure to unexpected and stressful events”. Perhaps you can identify with that definition because it sounds exactly like what you are experiencing. Unfortunately, the truth is that what we have been through so far is just the beginning.  As I have been warning for years, as “the perfect storm” gets rolling it is just going to keep getting worse and worse.

Not One Body Has Been Found At Indigenous 'Unmarked Mass Grave' In Kamloops, Canada

Over a dozen churches were set on fire throughout Canada over claims that ground-penetrating radar discovered what appeared to be an "unmarked mass grave" of indigenous children "as young as three years old" in Kamloops, yet not one body has been exhumed and the radar signatures of "graves" may just be tree roots and stones.

Politics Is Dead, Here’s What Killed It

Here's "politics" in America now: come with mega-millions or don't even bother to show up. Choose which "enemies list" you want to be on; there's not much choice. And don't forget to put a flower on the grave of representational democracy. The Federal Reserve transferred trillions of dollars of unearned wealth into the feeding troughs of the super-wealthy and corporations, vastly increasing the wealth the top 0.01% had to buy elections and favors. The Federal Reserve cloaked its treachery with jargon-- quantitative easing, stimulus, etc.--and then stabbed the nation's representational democracy in the back.

Militarization of America’s health care infrastructure is rapidly accelerating in preparation for medical martial law

One of the objectives has always been gaining complete control over the U.S. healthcare system, a process that began in 2009 when then-President Barack Obama and majority Democrats introduced the misnamed “Affordable Care Act,” a.k.a. “Obamacare,” which was literally an attempt to federalize nearly all medical care in the country and give bureaucrats the authority to make life-or-death decisions regarding Americans’ health. -- Obamacare survived several legal challenges and was literally declared ‘constitutional’ by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who invented language in the law to claim the individual mandate was a “tax” when even Obama said that it wasn’t. The individual mandate was repealed during Donald Trump’s first year in office after it was inserted into a major tax reform bill.

A Great Opportunity to Restore the Republic

But make no mistake about it: If foreign interventionism generates another such attack, the national-security establishment will seize on it to justify ever-increasing power, money, and influence, just as it did with the 9/11 attacks. -- That’s why the American people should seize the day and use this opportunity to restore our nation’s founding governmental system — a limited-government republic — to our land. They should do so now because the window of opportunity might not be there tomorrow.

According to the government, James Earl Ray shot Dr. Martin Luther King from that window. There is, needless to say, no physical evidence to prove this charge. James Earl Ray spent his life in prison based solely on a coerced confession which he immediately retracted. None of the ballistics tests, which were performed on the rifle James Earl Ray allegedly used, were able to link that rifle to the actual bullet that killed Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. King's family does not think James Earl Ray was the killer, and recently won a civil court case proving there was a conspiracy.

Now, thanks to writer Ted Wilburn, in a story which follows, new evidence has surfaced to prove that the government and the media have been lying to the public about the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King.

5 Facts About Sidney Poitier

He Was The First African-American Best Actor Oscar Winner
Of course, if you know one thing about legendary actor Sidney Poitier, you know that he was the first African-American to win an Oscar for a leading role, the second win for an African-American (Hatty McDaniel's for his After winning the portrayal of the controversial Mammy character in 1939's Gone with the Wind). Poitier won Best Actor in 1963 for his role in Lily of the Field, but it took 38 years for another African-American actor (Denzel Washington, for Training Day) to win the award. In his speech, Washington said of Poitier, "I will always follow you, Sydney. I will always follow in your footsteps. There is nothing I would do, sir. Nothing but I would." The following year, Poitier won another Oscar for his Lifetime Achievement.

What Ike’s military industrial complex speech didn’t say

Today is the 61st anniversary of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s coining of the Military Industrial Complex in his farewell address, Jan. 17, 1961. His departure and the incoming Kennedy administration would herald, at least in popular lore, the New Frontier. Three years later, the young Kennedy would be dead, an assassination forever at the center of unresolved collective disbelief and mystery. Conspiracy theories have abounded, most all of them involving some level of government cover-up in the aftermath of the assassination.

Madoc, The Welsh Prince Who (Maybe) Beat Columbus To The New World

The legend of Christopher Columbus as the first European explorer to set foot on the American continent has been falsified in light of evidence that others, such as the Vikings, had traveled to the New World much earlier. However, a lesser known legend is that a disgruntled Welsh prince named Maddock crossed the Atlantic about 300 years before Columbus and brought settlers to modern-day Alabama.

Covid: A Collision of Historical and Scientific Illiteracy

It’s been a year since I’ve written anything for this blog. The reason, frankly, is that I have been at a loss for words. What has happened to human society in the last two years has been, for anyone with an understanding of history, beyond belief.

Of course, it should not be beyond belief because we know history repeats itself. And in the last two years it has been repeating with a vengeance.

I spent 18 years working to understand, and help others understand, the crimes of September 11, 2001. Those crimes were never honestly investigated apart from the work of independent researchers. The official accounts are widely known to be false and those who have taken the time to look deeper have found that there are good reasons to believe that people within government and major corporations were involved in planning and executing the attacks.

60 years on, lives are still being ruined by the US’ Agent Orange campaign in Vietnam

One of the most shameful legacies of America’s failed war effort in Vietnam is the lasting damage done by Agent Orange (AO).

AO was a powerful herbicide used by the American military in Operation Ranch Hand, which was launched in January 1962, to clear foliage to build bases and transport routes, plus eliminate forest cover for the Vietnamese troops. Millions of gallons were sprayed during the conflict by US forces, but the fact it contained the deadly chemical dioxin meant it caused major health issues for many of those who came into contact with it.

Currently, about 20% of those affected receive aid, leaving the vast majority of victims marginalized. But one man, Charles Bailey, has dedicated his career to changing that by simultaneously tackling the issues of ongoing contamination and directing aid to victims, many of whom are still suffering today.

Many assume this is about the ongoing shift toward treating all opposition to the regime as domestic terrorism.

Politicians will go on about the threat to our democracy while agents of the secret police drag people off for made up crimes. Liberal democracy is in its terror phase. The gross violation of rights is justified by the perpetual state of emergency over the alleged threat to the system.

JFK Assassination: What’s In The Newest Batch Of Declassified Documents?

Last month, the Biden administration released a batch of classified documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The National Archives and Records Administration published the new 1,491 documents, of which 958 are from the CIA.

That means 9 out of 10 of the total number of documents are still being withheld from declassification.

“It’s very little and very late,” Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the president’s nephew, told The Epoch Times.

“There’s only 10 percent of the documents that legally have to be released in that data dump. But even those documents are clearly showing that the CIA lied outright to the Warren Commission about its relationship with Lee Harvey Oswald.”

I am surprised — and terrified — when the great mass of people acts as sheep; when they reject the values of America’s founding documents and they ignore the history and courage that has undergirded personal liberty in our once free society. -- Let’s get this straight: The executive branch of the federal government and of nearly all states has told Americans how to live, dress, work, travel, attend church, run their businesses and control their bodies in defiance of the Constitution; and the people — yearning more for a false sense of security than the reality of freedom — bowed down and said: YES.

Why Did the World Choose a Gold Standard Instead of a Silver Standard?

By Ryan McMaken

Among those who support the end of government fiat money, it’s not uncommon to hear and see claims that gold is “the best money” or “natural money” or the only substance that’s really suited to be commodity money. In many of these cases, when they say “gold” they mean gold, and not silver, platinum, or any other precious metal.

Naturally, one can expect to encounter these claims among those who have made a living out of promoting gold and gold-related investments for commercial purposes.

For example, consider Nathan Lewis’s 2020 article at Forbes titled “Gold Has Always Been the Best Money.” Lewis contends that gold and not silver is obviously the best money and its adoption as the metal behind the nineteenth-century gold standard was more or less inevitable and based on the alleged intrinsic superiority of gold as money...

The Zionist Shadows of Woodrow Wilson During World War I and Its Aftermath in Paris

In a Daily News Bulletin issued February 4, 1924, by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Jewish leaders across the nation publicly mourned the passing of former war-time president Woodrow Wilson, the self-described “staunch friend of the Jews.” The telegram goes on to commemorate Wilson’s “intense interest in Jewish questions” by reviewing his political deeds as president, appointing Louis D. Brandeis to the Supreme Court Bench despite vigorous opposition from the Court itself and urging the approval of the British Mandate over Palestine following the Balfour Declaration.[1]

The most important computer you’ve never heard of

To defend the United States and Canada, a massive array of interconnected radars would be set up across the two nations. Connected by high-speed links to a distributed network of computers and radar scopes, Air Force personnel scan the skies for unexpected activity. One day, an unidentified aircraft is discovered, flying over the Arctic and heading toward the United States. A quick check of all known commercial flights rules out a planeload of holiday travelers lost over the Northern Canadian tundra. At headquarters, the flight is designated as a bogey, as all attempts to contact it have failed. A routine and usually uneventful intercept will therefore fly alongside to identify the aircraft and record registration information.

The Wounded Knee Massacre: The Forgotten History of the Native American Gun Confiscation

By Molly Carter

The Battle at Wounded Knee is a significant battle in American history, as it put an end to the Indian Wars and is marked as the last official defeat of the Native Americans. But what’s not taught in history lessons is that Wounded Knee was one of the first federally backed gun confiscations in the history of the United States, and it ended in the massacre of nearly 300 unarmed people.

During the late 19th century, American Indians were allowed to purchase and carry firearms, just as white men were. The colonial gun laws did not bar Native Americans from possessing firearms, yet that natural right was violated by government forces at Wounded Knee. And once the guns were confiscated, the battle ensued...

REVELATION: Only the “vaccinated” died during the 1918 Spanish Flu

Everything you thought you knew about the infamous “Spanish Flu” outbreak of 1918 is probably wrong.

It turns out that one of the most well-known pandemics from recent history was actually caused by the “vaccines” that were supposedly introduced to stop it – much like how the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines” of today are spreading more covid.

Dr. Sal Martingano, FICPA, explains that mass vaccination during the Spanish Flu is what actually caused people to die. In fact, the only people who ended up dying during the ordeal were those who got jabbed.

In her book Vaccination Condemned, Dr. Eleanor McBean, Ph.D., N.D., explains how she is an “unvaccinated survivor” of the 1918 Spanish Flu. She continues to urge people to revisit the historical event with a new lens, which she helps readers to do in her book.

Video: The Christmas Truce of 1914 and Other Unlearned Lessons from World War I

…the ones who call the shots (in war) won’t be among the dead and lame And on each end of the rifle we’re the same” — John McCutcheon

In World War I, as happens to be true in most American wars, the Christian church leadership joined in the patriotic fervor with very un-Christ-like, nationalistic and racial/religious domination stances.

Astonishingly, religious leaders on every side of the conflict truly believed that God was on their particular side. And so the pulpits all over Europe, including British, Scottish, French, Belgian, German, Austrian, Hungarian, Russian and Italian reverberated with flag-waving fervor, with clear messages to their doomed warrior-sons that it was their God-given Christian duty to march off to kill the equally brain-washed young Christian soldier enemies, who were also certain that God was on their side.

The Forgotten Christmas Truce of 1914. Unlearned Lessons which could have Prevented a Century of War (1914 – 2014)

It was exactly 106 years ago this month when the Christmas Truce of 1914 occurred, when Christian soldiers on both sides of the infamous No Man’s Land of the Western Front, recognized their common humanity, dropped their guns and fraternized with the so-called enemies that they had been ordered to kill without mercy the day before. As mentioned in last week’s column, the truth of that remarkable event has since been effectively covered up by state and military authorities (and the embedded journalists at the time) because they were angered (and embarrassed) by the breakdown of military discipline.

In the annals of war, such “mutinies” are now unheard of. The generals and (as well as the saber-rattling, chest-thumping politicians and war profiteers back home) rapidly developed strategies to prevent such behavior from happening again.

This week we time travel to 1530 and Geneva.

"When the bubonic plague struck Geneva in 1530, everything was ready. They even opened a whole hospital for the plague victims. With doctors, paramedics and nurses. The traders contributed, the magistrate gave grants every month. The patients always gave money, and if one of them died alone, all the goods went to the hospital.

But then a disaster happened: the plague was dying out, while the subsidies depended on the number of patients. There was no question of right and wrong for the Geneva hospital staff in 1530. If the plague produces money, then the plague is good. And then the doctors got organized.

Raiding the World Bank: Exposing a Fondness for Dictators

By James Bovard

I have always had a bad attitude toward official secrets regardless of who is keeping them. That prejudice and John Kenneth Galbraith are to blame for an unauthorized withdrawal I made from the World Bank.

When I lived in Boston in the late 1970s, I paid $25 to attend a series of lectures by Galbraith on foreign aid and other topics. The louder Galbraith praised foreign aid, the warier I became. His hokum spurred my reading and led me to recognize that foreign aid is one of the worst afflictions that poor nations suffer. As one critic quipped, foreign aid is money from governments, to governments, for governments.

Interesting Facts About Charles Darwin

Had A Lot In Common With Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were both born on February 12, 1809, although they belonged to different parts of the Earth. They were both autodidact, as Lincoln "read" the law instead of attending law school, and Darwin used his skills of observation to revolutionize the scientific world with his Origin of Species. Similarly, they were both strong opponents of slavery, with Darwin calling it "a monstrous stain on our arrogant freedom".

Rare photographs capture the assassination of King Alexander I of Yugoslavia, 1934

The assassination of the first Yugoslavian king Alexander by Vlado Chernozemsky, a veteran marksman in the work of the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization (IMRO), would have been forgotten had it not been for the hordes of still and reel cameras. It was the first political murder to be caught on news cameras.

As a result of the previous deaths of three family members on Tuesday, Sikandar refused to do any public work on that day of the week.

On Tuesday, 9 October 1934, however, he had no choice, as he was arriving in Marseilles to begin a state visit to France to consolidate the alliance of the two countries at the Little Entente.

Biden administration releases previously classified JFK assassination documents

The Biden administration has released a tranche of secret documents that some historians -- and conspiracy theorists -- hope might shed light on the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

You can read the documents here.

The release of almost 1,500 documents still leaves more than 10,000 either partially redacted or withheld entirely. It is expected to prolong the bitter debate between the federal government and JFK researchers, who have argued that the CIA, the FBI and other national security agencies have continually stonewalled a congressionally mandated release.

Longtime JFK researchers say the release likely does not include a smoking gun that would substantively change the public understanding of the circumstances surrounding Kennedy's death -- nor, historians argue, does one likely exist elsewhere.

Bathing Machines of The 19th Century

To help women maintain their dignity and modesty, a simple contraption called the "bath machine" was developed. A bathing machine resembles a wooden changing room commonly seen on beaches, but is larger in size, and is raised and turned inward on wheels. The woman entered the small room of the bathing machine while she was on the beach, wearing her street clothes. In the secrecy of the machine, she would change into her bathing dress, which was very modest by today's standards, and store her street clothes in a raised compartment where they would stay dry.

Pictures of Graf Zeppelin over Chicago that left the onlookers in complete awe, 1929

These vintage photographs show the airship Graf Zeppelin LZ 127 on the American leg of its voyage around the world, taking off over Chicago in August 1929. The crew lowered the plane over the city and the crowd was mesmerized by the sight.

The Chicago Daily Tribune in its August 30, 1929 edition described the event as follows: Millions of Chicagoans take to the streets as the Graf Zeppelin soars over the city to the accompaniment of the loudest roar of welcome that once went up to the sky From the metropolis of this middle continent.

The great airship was first seen in the loop at around 5:20 a.m., and it floated over the downtown area for about 18 minutes, before disappearing into the hazy eastern sky within three minutes of leaving the lakeshore.

5 Fun Facts About Mark Twain

That Wasn't Really His Name
Born on November 30, 1835, in Missouri, young Samuel Langhorne Clemens was a great lover of science and literature, but despite his passion, he never did well in school. His formal education ended in fifth grade when his father, a judge, died of pneumonia and Clemens took an apprenticeship at a local newspaper to provide for his family.

Even as he worked as a miner and steamboat pilot, however, Clemens continued to visit libraries and read aloud. When he eventually became a journalist, Clemens decided to take on the surname of a writer who had died in 1869. Mark Twain, as he was known, specifically had an old-fashioned way of saying that the water was deep enough for a boat to travel through. safely through.

The Yamal Nenets Autonomous Region, on the outskirts of Russia's capital, Salekhard, at the edge of the Arctic Circle, houses the disused remains of the infamous Salekhard–Igarka railway, known as the 'Railway of Death', the 'Road of Death'. Death', and 'Dead Road'. This planned 1,300-kilometre railway was part of Stalin's Transpolar Mainline, a grand plan to connect the eastern and western parts of Siberia, from the city of Inta in the Komi Autonomous Republic, from Salekhard to Igarka, on the Yenisei River. The line was never completed, yet thousands of workers forced on the project died while trying.

Finding David: An American Wife Betrayed by Her Government

Joseph Stalin supposedly once said, “The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic.”

A great deal has been written about the shameless and utterly unforgivable abandonment of American POWs in the wake of the Vietnam War—although, thanks to the American news media, few people are aware of it—but, up to now, no writing that we are aware of quite captures the tragedy and, yes, the outrage of this cold and heartless policy so much as Carol Hrdlicka’s recent book, Finding David: An American Wife Betrayed by Her Government.

When Hitler’s nephew moved to America and joined the US Navy to fight his uncle, 1911-1947

William Patrick Stuart-Houston (née Hitler), son of Alois Hitler Jr., was Adolf Hitler's half-nephew. He was born in the Toxteth area of ??Liverpool, England in 1911 in a house that was later destroyed in a German air raid.

Alois Hitler Jr. and Irish lady Bridget Dowling met in Dublin in 1909 and married in the Marylebone district of London in 1910 and moved back to Liverpool.

Alois Hitler left his wife and son in England and moved back to Germany where he started a new family. According to the Lyon Air Museum, Willie was reunited with his father when he was 18; He traveled to Germany where his dear old "dad took him to a Nazi rally where he saw his uncle Adolf." In 1930 William visited Germany again, this time meeting his uncle in person and receiving an autographed photograph from him.

This 1996 interview with Gary Webb took place after his “Dark Alliance” newspaper series made waves across the country for piecing together the puzzle of the US crack epidemic.

The pipeline of CIA backed drug smuggling into the country and money smuggling out of the country to support the Nicaraguan Contras was wide open from the mid 1970s on, with players using everything from their shoes to freighters to move cocaine.

Webb was widely smeared by the CIA’s favorite newspapers (The New York Times, the Washington Post, The LA Times) shortly after this interview.

He was eventually vindicated, but not before his career was destroyed. He was found dead of an apparent suicide in 2005. The price of being a whistleblower?

Two gunshots to the back of the head. Suicide. Right.

Classified Docs Reveal Massacres of Palestinians in '48 – and What Israeli Leaders Knew

The discussions were fraught with emotion. Cabinet minister Haim-Moshe Shapira said that all of Israel’s moral foundations had been undermined. Minister David Remez remarked that the deeds that had been done remove us from the category of Jews and from the category of human beings altogether. Other ministers were also appalled: Mordechai Bentov wondered what kind of Jews would be left in the country after the war; Aharon Zisling related that he had had a sleepless night – the criminals, he said, were striking at the soul of the whole government. Some ministers demanded that the testimonies be investigated and that those responsible be held to account. David Ben-Gurion was evasive. In the end, the ministers decided on an investigation. The result was the establishment of the “committee to examine cases of murder in [by] the army.”

East Wind, Rain: Treason at Pearl Harbor

The truth about this incident of treason against the American people and betrayal of our fighting men is so shocking — and so revealing — that once heard, it will forever alter your view of our world and the forces that shape it. After hearing this broadcast, you will never be able to trust the controlled media again; and you will see with crystal clarity the hand of America’s enemies as they guide our government from disaster to disaster.

In the early morning of December 4th, 1941, at a US Navy shortwave monitoring station in Cheltenham, Maryland, a half-hour drive southeast of Washington, DC, senior radio operator Ralph Briggs was just coming on duty. Briggs was 27 years old, had been with the Navy since the age of 20, and had worked with Naval Intelligence monitoring foreign shortwave broadcasts for four years. He had been an amateur radio operator, callsign W9NCM, since he was a teenager.

Flying Boats Flew Japan’s Little-Known Follow-On Raid On Pearl Harbor

While Operation Z had been spearheaded by multiple aircraft carriers, as well as submarines large and small, Operation K would send a much smaller package of bomb-carrying flying boats. The chosen aircraft was the Kawanishi H8K, which was given the Allied reporting name Emily.

Described by aviation historian René Francillon as “the most outstanding water-based combat aircraft of the Second World War,” the H8K was then one of the most recent types to enter IJN service — it had made its first flight in prototype form in January 1941, with production authorized later that year. It was judged the ideal platform for the second raid on Pearl Harbor thanks to its prodigious range — more than 4,400 miles in patrol configuration — and its useful internal bombload of up to 4,400 pounds. Other potential long-range bombing missions using the H8K against targets in California had apparently been discussed but were quickly shelved.

Did FDR Provoke Pearl Harbor?

A day earlier, at dawn, carrier-based Japanese aircraft had launched a sneak attack devastating the U.S. battle fleet at Pearl Harbor.

Said ex-President Herbert Hoover, Republican statesman of the day, “We have only one job to do now, and that is to defeat Japan.”

But to friends, “the Chief” sent another message: “You and I know that this continuous putting pins in rattlesnakes finally got this country bit.”

Today, 70 years after Pearl Harbor, a remarkable secret history, written from 1943 to 1963, has come to light. It is Hoover’s explanation of what happened before, during and after the world war that may prove yet the death knell of the West.

Edited by historian George Nash, “Freedom Betrayed: Herbert Hoover’s History of the Second World War and Its Aftermath” is a searing indictment of FDR and the men around him as politicians who lied prodigiously about their desire to keep America out of war, even as they took one deliberate step after another to take us into war.

FDR provoked the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bump to the top.

Dec 07 12:16


President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders. FDR needed the attack to sucker Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war.

FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by -

denying intelligence to Hawaii (HI)

on Nov 27, misleading the commanders into thinking negotiations with Japan were continuing to prevent them from realizing the war was on

having false information sent to HI about the location of the Japanese carrier fleet.

The McCollum Memo:The Smoking Gun of Pearl Harbor

On October 7, 1940, Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum of the Office of Naval Intelligence submitted a memo to Navy Captains Walter Anderson and Dudley Knox (whose endorsement is included in the following scans). Captains Anderson and Knox were two of President Roosevelt's most trusted military advisors.

The memo, scanned below, detailed an 8 step plan to provoke Japan into attacking the United States. President Roosevelt, over the course of 1941, implemented all 8 of the recommendations contained in the McCollum memo. Following the eighth provocation, Japan attacked. The public was told that it was a complete surprise, an "intelligence failure", and America entered World War Two.

Eighty Years of Lies: President Franklin Roosevelt Told Public Pearl Harbor Was A Surprise Attack—However There Is Considerable Evidence Demonstrating Government Foreknowledge

Eighty years ago today—what President Franklin Roosevelt termed a “date which will live in infamy”—Japanese forces attacked the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor off the coast of Hawaii, triggering U.S. intervention in World War II.

Historian Samuel Elliot Morrison wrote that one could “search military history in vain for an operation more fatal to the aggressor.”[3] 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,143 were wounded. Eighteen ships were sunk or run aground, including five battleships.

Of the American fatalities, nearly half were due to the explosion of the USS Arizona’s forward magazine after it was hit by a modified 16-inch (410 mm) shell.[4]

In his address to the nation following the attacks, President Roosevelt stated that “the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the empire of Japan.”

December 7, 1941 . . . a Day of Deceit

This week, as Americans remember those 2403 men, women, and children killed – and 1178 wounded – in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941, recently released government documents concerning that "surprise" raid compel us to revisit some troubling questions.

At issue is American foreknowledge of Japanese military plans to attack Hawaii by a submarine and carrier force 59 years ago. There are two questions at the top of the foreknowledge list: (1) whether President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his top military chieftains provoked Japan into an "overt act of war" directed at Hawaii, and (2) whether Japan's military plans were obtained in advance by the United States but concealed from the Hawaiian military commanders, Admiral Husband E. Kimmel and Lieutenant General Walter Short so they would not interfere with the overt act.

Did Malaysia Cover Up MH370 Crash? British Engineer's Theory Sparks Debate

A British engineer claims he is "quite convinced" he has located the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

In 2014, a Malaysia Airlines plane carrying 239 people went missing while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Richard Godfrey has been experimenting with new tracking equipment in an attempt to solve one of history's greatest aviation mysteries. He claims the device, which uses radio signals as "tripwires," assisted him in locating the jet, which he claims is 13,000 feet below the ocean's surface.

The plane lies around 1,200 miles west of Perth, Australia, near the base of the Broken Ridge, an underwater plateau with a volcano and ravines in the southern Indian Ocean, according to Godfrey.

RATS, BATS AND DIRTY VAX — the Evolution of the Virus

By Julie Beal

To get to grips with what a virus is, and how a virus is isolated, we first have to explore the history of their discovery.

From a circular signed “The Doctors”, 1876:

“Try re-vaccination – it never will hurt you,
For re-vaccination has this one great virtue:
Should it injure or kill you whenever you receive it,
We all stand prepared to refuse to believe it.”

Five Facts About John Wilkes Booth, American Assassin

He was not southern
You might think that President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by a Union, but in reality, John Wilkes Booth wasn't even from the South. He was born in Bel Air, Maryland to one of the most famous actors in the world at the time, Julius Brutus Booth. However, he expressed sympathy for their cause. He also wrote to his mother about his desire to join the Confederate army and called himself a coward for not doing so. Political differences actually soured Booth's relationship with his brother, Edwin, who was an ardent Lincoln supporter, both of whom became respected actors themselves.

Catherine The Great: Biography, Stories, And Trivia About The Great

The last ruling Empress, Catherine the Great, brought Russia into the modern world and solidified its position as a major European power during the 18th century. Originally from Pomerania (modern Poland), she was born as Princess Sophie of Anhalt-Zerbst, daughter of the minor German prince Christian August, on May 2, 1729. Despite her title, being a minor prince in those days did not have much money, so like many young nobles, Catherine was only married at the age of 16 to Peter III of Russia, which was a big step for her.

Fred Hampton was well spoken, he was out spoken, and he was a real community leader.

And he was young. Just 21. He had a life of social and political action in front of him.

Then, with intelligence provided by the FBI, Chicago Police raided his apartment in the early morning, shooting directly at the bed he was known to sleep in. They missed his eight and a half month pregnant girlfriend – and him.

Then they cleared the room and finished him off with two close range shots to the head.

The police report said that Hampton shot at them and refused to surrender.

The evidence shows nothing of the kind happened. He was murdered in cold blood.

No one has gone to jail for this yet – but there is no statute of limitations on murder and many of the people involved in the killing involved are still alive so we can hope. The law says they’re as guilty as the person who pulled the trigger.

Maya Angelou: Life, Biography, And Stories About The Literary Titan

Born Marguerite Annie Johnson on April 4, 1928 in St. Louis, Missouri, Maya Angelou was a titan of the American literary world. An expert in prose, poetry, and academic writing, she exemplifies modern storytelling in excellent fiction, while also providing her audience with a historical account of what it was like to be a young black girl in the early 1900s.

As a teenager, Angelo showed his tenacity when he applied to become a streetcar driver. Although initially she refused, she sat outside the hiring office every day for two weeks. When asked why she wanted the job so badly, she simply replied, "I love uniforms. I like people." In 1944, the 16-year-old became the first black woman to drive a streetcar in San Francisco.

The pro-Nazi US official who helped shape post-war Germany

Newly declassified FBI files have shed significant light on the Nazi sympathies of John McCloy, the US assistant secretary of war during World War II, revealing a depth to the relationship that was not previously known.

McCloy is an enormously significant figure in 20th century US history – as well as his war role, he went on to serve as World Bank president, US high commissioner for Germany, Council on Foreign Relations chair, and adviser to all presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Ronald Reagan.

That McCloy performed extensive legal work for several corporations in Nazi Germany before the War – among them chemical giant IG Farben, notorious for manufacturing Zyklon B, the cyanide-based pesticide used in extermination camps during the Holocaust – and got extremely rich in the process is relatively well known, but typically relegated to a footnote in official biographies of the man.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

McCloy also served on the Warren Commission "investigating" the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

America did not steal the land or enslave Africans

For the Thanksgiving weekend, the black nationalist communists at BLM trotted out the lie that white people stole the land from the Indians and stole slaves from Africa.

In both cases, the white settlers paid for them. The Indians sold the land. Africans sold the slaves. The African slave market in Ghana had been going on for a thousand years before Europeans began purchasing them to work in the New World.

Our politicians aren’t referencing the Holodomor every other day and visiting Holodomor Museums. If you ask any random American on the street about the Holodomor they will have no idea what it is.

Pandemic no excuse for White House to keep all JFK files secret – Oliver Stone to RT

The Oscar-winning director told Afshin Rattansi how he was baffled by President Joe Biden’s decision to once again postpone the release of classified files on the assassination of the 35th president, John F. Kennedy, in 1963.

A White House memo written last month alleged that, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the National Archives and other agencies needed “additional time” to prepare the Kennedy files for publication. The release of the documents was delayed until December 15, 2022.

“That was the official reason. I don’t know how that applies because I don’t know why you can’t read or think while you have Covid,” Stone told the host of RT’s ‘Going Underground’.

Former President Donald Trump released around 19,000 declassified documents, many of them with redactions, from the JFK case in 2018. However, others were withheld on the grounds of national security.

White House delays release of JFK assassination files "to protect against identifiable harm"

The White House said Friday it would delay the release of long-classified documents related to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. President Joe Biden wrote in a statement that the remaining files "shall be withheld from full public disclosure" until December 15 next year -- nearly 60 years after Kennedy's assassination in Dallas, Texas in 1963.

In 2017, former president Donald Trump released several thousand secret files on the assassination, but withheld others on national security grounds.

The White House said the national archivist needs more time for a review into that redaction, which was slowed by the pandemic.

In April 1954, Kennedy stood up on the Senate floor to challenge the Eisenhower Administration’s support for the doomed French imperial war in Vietnam, foreseeing that this would not be a short-lived war.

In July 1957, Kennedy once more took a strong stand against French colonialism, this time France’s bloody war against Algeria’s independence movement, which again found the Eisenhower Administration on the wrong side of history. Rising on the Senate floor, two days before America’s own Independence Day, Kennedy declared:

You may not know the name of Paul R. Williams, but if you've ever been to Los Angeles, you've probably admired his work. Born in the City of Angels on February 18, 1894, young Williams faced extreme hardships early in his life, losing both parents to tuberculosis by the age of four. After a stint in foster care, Williams was adopted by a family friend who recognized her precocious intelligence. As a young man, he fell in love with the architecture of Los Angeles, but was discouraged from studying architecture by his teachers, who warned him, "Your own people can't stand you, and white clients will hire you."

Grossman’s book is not a dystopian novel, yet few books better teach how force is used to control a population by not only restricting liberty but also exploiting weaknesses in human nature.

Manhattan D.A. will move to exonerate two men convicted of killing Malcolm X

Two men convicted of killing Black activist and civil rights advocate Malcolm X in 1965 will be exonerated, the Manhattan district attorney's office said on Wednesday, saying it will move to "vacate the wrongful convictions."

It would be an official acknowledgement of errors made in the case.

Malcolm X rose to prominence as the national spokesman of the Nation of Islam, an African-American Muslim group that espoused Black separatism. He spent over a decade with the group before becoming disillusioned, publicly breaking with it in 1964 and moderating some of his earlier views on racial separation.

He was shot dead at New York City's Audubon Ballroom while preparing to deliver a speech. Three members of the Nation of Islam were convicted in the shooting. In 1966, the three defendants were found guilty and sentenced to life in prison.
