Table of Contents
By Marc Roland. In 1917, Russia was in tumult. The nation was reeling from its involvement in WWI. The Bolsheviks had overthrown and imprisoned Czar Nicholas II and were plotting his execution. While most of the world ignored or censored the truth about events in Russia, one brave British journalist did not. His name was Robert Wilton, and here is his story.
A SHORT HISTORY OF THE KKK
By John Friend. Although most people think of the Ku Klux Klan as an organization created to sow mayhem, the exact opposite is true. The Klan was originally founded because Northerners had turned the South into a dangerous place for White Southerners.
THE FREE STATE OF JONES
By Clint Lacy. Hollywood is at it again, twisting truth for the sake of their anti-South agenda. This time it’s a new movie about a Confederate deserter who leaves his wife to marry a black slave and at the same time convinces his county to secede from the C.S.A. But what is the real truth about busy beaver Newt Knight and his “Free State of Jones”?
GEN. SHERMAN’S PLUNDER

AMERICA’S COLD WAR GUINEA PIGS

LAURI TOERNI’S INSPIRING SAGA
By Michael Heidler. Here’s the story of one of World War II’s unsung heroes—a daring Finnish freedom fighter, who stood with his countrymen against the Soviet invaders, and became a respected officer of the Waffen-SS all-volunteer army.

THE TOBA SUPERVOLCANO DISASTER

A JUDGE LOOKS AT AUSCHWITZ
By Germar Rudolf.

Here’s the story of Judge Wilhelm Staeglich and what he discovered about Auschwitz.
HIMMLER VS. HITLER ON CHRISTIANITY
By Patrick Derek Fox. The court historians tell us Adolf Hitler was virulently anti-Christian, locking up priests and burning down churches like a berserker. They say he was inspired by SS Reich Leader Heinrich Himmler, an unrepentant pagan. What’s the truth?
BEWARE BROKERED CONVENTIONS
By Victor Thorn. Billionaire candidate Donald Trump is still battling it out with feisty contender Sen. Ted Cruz for the GOP nomination.

Take a look at 1952 . . .
