We Were Soldiers [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2017-11-12 07:18:54 by tpaine
We Were Soldiers by Mark Steyn November 11, 2017 On "Fox & Friends" this morning, reacting to the live footage of President Trump in Hanoi, I talked about the Vietnam war's domestic impact on the American psyche. It took many decades for that to change, and this Veterans Day movie pick is one of the cultural artifacts of that evolution in perception - a film about soldiering that wears its allegiance in its very title. It was released about six months after 9/11, in the spring of 2002, and in that sense is a movie about an old war seen through the lens of a new one. The best thing about We Were Soldiers is how bad it is. I don't mean "bad" in the sense ...

Never Forget: The US Gov’t Carried Out the Largest Church Massacre—24 Years Ago, In Texas
Post Date: 2017-11-09 05:42:44 by Deckard
On Sunday, a horrifying tragedy unfolded as a mass shooting terrorist walked into a Texas church and began slaughtering innocent women, men, and children. The massacre left 26 people dead, according to police, including an unborn child who died inside his pregnant mother. On Wednesday, the names of the deceased were released along with the heartbreaking photos of the children, two of which were only 5 and 7-years-old. The tragedy is being dubbed the deadliest mass shooting in Texas history. Sadly, there have been many deadly massacres which have taken place inside places of worship. From the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing to the Charleston Church shooting to Sutherland Springs, over the ...

Trump expected to block release of classified JFK assassination documents
Post Date: 2017-10-21 10:30:33 by Deckard
President Trump is anticipated to block the release of some of the classified files related to former President John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963, which are to be made public by next Thursday. Unless Trump intervenes, the National Archives has until Oct. 26 to release nearly 3,100 documents pertaining to Kennedy's assassination in 1963. The date was established by the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, which was signed into law by former President George H.W. Bush in an attempt to minimize conspiracy theories about Kennedy's death. Trump administration officials are concerned releasing classified documents from the 1990s would ...

Archaeologists in Turkey believe they have discovered Santa Claus's tomb
Post Date: 2017-10-04 08:17:59 by cranky
Archaeologists in Turkey have made a discovery which could settle a century-old debate
and disappoint millions of children around the world. They have unearthed what they say is likely the previously undiscovered tomb of the original Santa Claus, or Saint Nicholas, beneath an ancient church in Demre, southern Turkey. Demre, previously known as Myra, in Antalya province, is believed to be the birthplace of the 4th century bishop. Cemil Karabayram, the head of Antalyas Monument Authority, said the shrine was discovered during electronic surveys that showed gaps beneath the church. We believe this shrine has not been damaged at all, but it is quite difficult to get to it ...
14 Monopoly Rules That Aren't Actually Rules
Post Date: 2017-09-21 06:36:10 by Deckard
The man who invented Monopoly did not invent Monopoly. Here's the company line (and we mean that literallyHasbro, which now owns the rights to the game, continues to print this story on the first page of the official Monopoly rules): Monopoly was born when Charles Darrow presented the game, fully formed, to Parker Brothers executives in 1934. iStock In fact, by then Monopoly had been entertaining players for three decades. The truth is that a left-wing feminist named Lizzie Magie invented the game in 1903 under the title "The Landlord's Game." Her deliberate goal was to highlight the evils of capitalism.

Viking skeleton’s DNA test proves historians wrong
Post Date: 2017-09-09 17:53:12 by cranky
The remains of a powerful viking long thought to be a man was in fact a real-life Xena Warrior Princess, a study released Friday reveals. The lady war boss was buried in the mid-10th century along with deadly weapons and two horses, leading archaeologists and historians to assume she was a man, according to the findings, published in in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. Wrong. Its actually a woman, somewhere over the age of 30 and fairly tall, too, measuring around [56"] tall , archaeologist Charlotte Hedenstierna-Jonson of Uppsala University, who conducted the study, told The Local. And she was likely in charge. Aside from ...

Fake evidence used in the Oklahoma Bombing

25 Years Ago, the Federal Govt Changed its Rules to Launch a Sniper Attack on Off-Grid Family [Full Thread]

Randall and Vicki Weaver and their children wanted nothing more than to be left to live an isolated life in peace in their cabin enclave on a northern Idaho mountaintop called Ruby Ridge. Untrusting of the federal government and of the belief society had taken an insurmountable turn for the worse, the Weavers as many residents in the remote and breathtaking area taught their children to be self-sufficient and defend themselves with firearms from unwanted intrusions onto the familys property. But the Weavers seemingly idyllic life came to an appallingly violent end over several hours from August 21 to 22, 1992, in a horrendously botched federal raid that would also ...
Harry Truman and the Atomic Bomb

[Excerpted from Harry S. Truman: Advancing the Revolution, in Reassessing the Presidency: The Rise of the Executive State and the Decline of Freedom, John Denson, ed.] The most spectacular episode of Harry Trumans presidency will never be forgotten but will be forever linked to his name: the atomic bombings of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and of Nagasaki three days later. Probably around two hundred thousand persons were killed in the attacks and through radiation poisoning; the vast majority were civilians, including several thousand Korean workers. Twelve US Navy fliers incarcerated in a Hiroshima jail were also among the dead.1 Great controversy has always ...

The government fought cannabis and cannabis won. This Wednesday is the eightieth anniversary of the first major action the federal government took against cannabis in the United States, and eight decades later, that same federal government has still failed to reduce Americans consumption of the plant. In fact, its on the rise. Long before the era of prohibition, druggists used cannabis as a medicine. According to Origins, a joint publication by the Ohio State University and Miami University history departments: Cannabis, like opiates and cocaine, was freely available at drug stores in liquid form and as a refined product, hashish. ...
The Founders’ Go-To Text
Post Date: 2017-07-28 10:51:09 by Anthem
In his illuminating Reading the Bible with the Founding Fathers, Daniel L. Dreisbach shows how early Americans used the Bible both as an intellectual sourcebook and as a tool for moral instruction. He thinks the Bible was the most authoritative, accessible, and familiar book in eighteenth-century America. But be comforted, O Unbeliever! This book is not a work of Christian apologetics. A claim of biblical influence, Dreisbach writes, does not suggest that the founders were theocrats intent on imposing a biblical order on the polity. On the contrary, he says, Believers and skeptics alike made use of the Bible. The American University professor ...

Full title: Second Monumental Arch of Titus Celebrating Victory Over Jews Found in Rome Arch unearthed at the entrance of the Circus Maximus was built by Titus' brother Domitian, boasting of how the Romans had done the undoable and 'subdued the Jews'. It wasnt enough for the Romans to enslave the Jews, plunder Judea, conquer Jerusalem, destroy the Temple and then erect a massive triumphal arch to commemorate those feats of war for millennia to come: They had to build a second, even larger monument to celebrate their victory. Archaeologists in Rome have uncovered the remains of a second triumphal arch dedicated to the emperor Titus and his success in putting down the ...

He had lugged the 50 lb. bag of Milorganite into the garden in order to discover, as on many prior occasions, that he had nothing with which to open it. He blamed this on the war on terror and the TSA. As a youth he, as did every boy, had a pocket knife. Always. It was expected. There was no school rule against pocket knives. Once for a period they even all had switchblades. You could get them for 99 cents, a large amount in those days, enough to buy a case of 24 Coca-Colas. The switchblades met with school and parental disapproval as they smacked of New York gangs. But before teachers and parents came up with a policy, the boys had abandoned the switchblades. The knives had weak springs. ...
The Boston Marathon Bombing After Four Years

April 15, 2017, was the fourth anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing, a hoax event performed by crisis actors and tell-tale bright red Hollywood blood. Sheila Casey has done a good job of exposing the hoax just by using the time line and photos of the event. https://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2013/05/08/false-flag-theatre-boston-bombing-involves-clearly-staged-carnage/ A number of agencies run training programs in which amputees working as crisis actors have a prosthesis afixed to resemble a bone as a remaining piece of a leg or arm. Casey examines the Boston event by timeline. First the crisis actors are assembled. Then the prosthesis is attached. Then the blood appears. Notice ...

Military historian Patrick K. ODonnell, author of Washingtons Immortals: The Untold Story of an Elite Regiment Who Changed the Course of the Revolution, joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow for a special Independence Day edition of Breitbart News Daily. Washingtons Immortals tells the story of a heroic regiment that saved the Continental Army from destruction at the Battle of Brooklyn by holding the British at bay. Despite the pivotal importance of their sacrifice, the regimental dead are buried in a mass grave with only the most minimal markings, their story largely unknown to the modern public.

"There's a huge story to be told," says Anthony Lappé, "about the actual extent of the U.S. government's involvement in drug trafficking." And that's exactly the story Lappé and his co-producers Julian Hobbs and Elli Hakami tell in a mesmerizing four-part series that debuted this week on cable TV's History Channel. Through dramatic recreations and in-depth interviews with academic researchers, historians, journalists, former federal agents, and drug dealers, America's War on Drugs (watch full episodes online here) tells true tales of how, for instance, the CIA and Department of Defense helped to introduce LSD to Americans in the 1950s. ...
