Table of Contents
By John Tiffany. Sir Francis Bacon has been called “the last of the Tudors” because his real mother was Queen Elizabeth I, considered the last member of the Tudor dynasty. Fate may have cheated him of his crown, but he lives forever as a secret author and for his connection to mysterious Oak Island.
UNDERWATER WARFARE IN THE 1860S
By Philip Rife. Nearly half a century before the U.S. Navy famously adopted the concept of submersible ships, the Confederate Navy was creating “gray thunder” with submarines and several other un-heard-of underwater inventions.
ANTISEMITISM IN THE CIVIL WAR
By Robert Grooms. Jews were blasted in both the North and South during Abraham Lincoln’s War, being accused of profiteering instead of fighting in the front lines. Was this just brazen anti-Semitism?
MALICIOUS ALLIED PROPAGANDA CREATES ANTI-GERMAN HYSTERIA
By Marc Roland. We hear a great deal about the suffering of Japanese and Japanese-Americans on the West Coast during WWII. But little is said in the establishment media of the horrible treatment of German-Americans during both world wars. Here’s an unfiltered look at this historical episode.
FAKE NEWS & HISTORY: IT’S BEEN AROUND A LONG TIME
By Pat Shannan. Fake news and fake history have been practiced religiously by our so-called free press since before most of us were born. The JFK assassination and 9/11 were and remain outstanding examples, but there are many others, the author alleges, ranging from the Moon landings to the false-flag attacks on the OKC federal building and the Davidian Church massacre. The South seceded from the union for less than this.
OPERATION MOCKINGBIRD: HOW THE CIA CONTROLS THE NEWS
By John Friend. Beginning in 1948 and into the 1950s and beyond, the CIA ran Operation Mockingbird to control the media and thus influence the public. By 1953 the agency held sway over more than 25 newspapers and wire agencies, as well as major TV broadcasters, and had them singing their propaganda. No wonder you can’t trust the media.
A POSSIBLE NEW INTERPRETATION OF THE HEAVENER RUNE STONE
By Ronald L. Ray. Out of several rune stones in Oklahoma, the Heavener is the most famous. Skeptics regard it as a prankish creation of some 19th-century immigrant. Others believe it a relic of medieval Vikings. But the author presents a novel new theory to explain the purpose of the mysterious stone.
COURT HISTORIANS DEMAND PROOF THAT CAMPS NOT FOR KILLING
By Germar Rudolf. Holocaustians demand Revisionists prove that many WWII concentration camps were transit camps, not death factories. “If not, prove it,” they say. Turns out there is evidence aplenty that for thousands of inmates, these places were layover stations, hardly the death factories they are painted.
AMERICAN ATTORNEYS FIGHT FOR JUSTICE AT NUREMBERG
By John Wear. The Nuremberg and other “war crime” tribunals were kangaroo courts where German defendants after WWII were brutally and repeatedly tortured to make them sign false confessions. But a few attorneys refused to play along.
REMEMBERING ÉDITH PIAF
By Michael Walsh. Édith Piaf, known as the “Little Sparrow,” rose above a life of hardship and suffering to become a famous songstress whose voice delighted the world. In her native France, she is regarded as almost a saint. Both the occupying Germans and the resistance were among her fans.
