UFOs Flying Over The White House In Washington D.C. (1952)
Post Date: 2020-08-11 13:47:46 by Bill D Berger
In July 1952, several UFOs were spotted flying near the White House. During that entire summer, reports of UFOs were quite high, and they caused quite a stir among Americans.What Happened: One example from the past I like to use comes from July of 1952, when multiple UFOs were filmed flying over Washington D.C. In fact, during that summer there were a number of sightings reported. These sightings were known as “the Big Flap” and are quite well known among many ufologists. During that time, military jets that were sent out to take a closer look at these objects did so to no avail. The objects instantaneously accelerated at speeds that are still not attainable today by any ...

Our Annual August Debate Over the Bombs BY VICTOR DAVIS HANSON AUG 06, 2020 12:15 AM EST Hiroshima (Stanley Troutman/Pool Photo via AP) This month marks the 75th anniversary of the dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan, at Hiroshima on Aug. 6, and Nagasaki on Aug. 9. Each year, Americans argue about our supposed moral shortcomings for being the only nation to have used an atomic weapon in war. Given the current cultural revolution that topples statues, renames institutions, cancels out the supposedly politically incorrect and wages war on America’s past, we will hear numerous attacks on the decision of Democratic President Harry Truman to use the two terrible weapons. But what ...

Felix Frankfurter

Felix Frankfurter HISTORY.COM EDITORS UPDATED:AUG 21, 2018 ORIGINAL:NOV 9, 2009 The only naturalized American to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, Felix Frankfurter (1882-1965), immigrated from Austria to New York in 1894. He graduated from Harvard Law School in 1906, and later joined the school’s faculty. Throughout the 1920s, Frankfurter was influential both as a law professor and as a participant in public debates. He became a trusted advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, resulting in his nomination to the Supreme Court in 1939. While Frankfurter argued in favor of the regulations established by the New Deal, his perceived unwillingness to protect minorities and monitor the ...

The Return of Greece
Post Date: 2020-08-03 08:46:21 by Ada
ATHENS—This ancient city without tourists reminds me of the Athens I once knew and loved, but for the hideous ’60s modern buildings that defaced its beauty like plastic surgery gone wrong. Walking around the winter royal palace and the national gardens, I point out some old beauties to the wife on Herod Atticus and King George II streets. The chic addresses are of friends, now mostly gone forever, and I include number 13 Herod Atticus, where over the course of six weeks the greatest classic since The Iliad was written by the famous scholar Taki back in 1974. (My publisher and dear friend Tom Stacey made close to a billion from it, and built numerous Xanadus the world over, ...

11,000-year-old mine in underwater cave surprises archaeologists The ancient site, preserved like a time capsule deep in a Mexican cave system, gives a rare glimpse into the lives and actions of some of the first residents of the Americas. BY MAYA WEI-HAAS PUBLISHED JULY 3, 2020 IN THE SPRING of 2017, a pair of divers shimmied fin-first through a narrow passageway in a water-filled cave beneath Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula. They had already swum for nearly half a mile through the cave system, winding around spires of rock jutting from the ceiling and floor, when they finally arrived at the threshold that spanned a mere 28 inches across. “That was the portal into this ...

The Bankers’ Blood Money: Secession and Invasion
Post Date: 2020-07-31 08:10:30 by Ada
Defense attorney and constitutional scholar John Remington Graham maintains that despite being two separate countries with different cultures and legislative interests, North and South had been held together by statesmen effecting compromises. Before differing interests could break them apart, hatred had to be fomented between North and South. He states his position clearly: “The American Civil War likewise would not have happened if it had not been planned and fomented.” Graham says that bankers, principally Rothschilds and Morgans, wanted a massive war that would greatly expand US national debt. By acquiring this debt and having legislation passed that would designate the ...

10 Jokes From ‘Blazing Saddles’ That Would Never Make The Cut In 2014 (or in 2020)
Post Date: 2020-07-28 11:58:44 by Bill D Berger
The classic Mel Brooks comedy Blazing Saddles was released 40 years ago, well before most of us were born, so when you’re done reading this, you can call your dad and remind him just how old he really is. Today’s so-called spoof directors could clearly learn a thing or 10,000 from one of the genre’s forefathers, Mel Brooks, because there isn’t a hilarious joke idea in Aaron Seltzer’s or Jason Friedberg’s brains that could still make people cry from laughter 40 years from now the same way that “Excuse me while I whip this out” still makes me smile like an asshole. Blazing Saddles is arguably Mel’s finest film, and I know that a lot of people will ...

Congress Adjourns Sine Die March 27th 1861 (why we have a corporate government)

Congress Adjourns Sine Die March 27th 1861 Written by Morpheus Titania Date: 01-07-2011 Subject: Congress- Congressmen De Jure Government Adjournment of Congress sine die a Latin term meaning “without [fixed] day”; No day is set for reconvening Seven southern nation States of America walked out of the Second Session of the Thirty-sixth Congress on March 27, 1861. In so doing, the Constitutional due process quorum necessary for Congress to vote was (temporarily) lost and Congress was adjourned sine die, or "without day." To some, this meant that there was no lawful quorum to set a specific day and time to reconvene. Some say that according to Robert's Rules of ...

Joe Biden authored the 1995 precursor to the Patriot Act which was conveniently introduced two months before the Oklahoma City Bombing.
Post Date: 2020-07-24 07:01:26 by Bill D Berger
The official story for the OKC Bombing is that a couple misguided patriot-terrorists decided to take revenge on the government for infringing upon people's rights. While their intent may have been genuine, there is evidence enforcing the theory that not only did the government know about their plans preceding the attack, but that they even provided the means to carry it out. In the wise words of Winston Churchill, "Never let a good crisis go to waste." It appears that the U.S. government had no intention of wasting this crisis before it even happened.On February 10th, 1995, Joe Biden introduced the Omnibus Counterterrorism Act. The bombing ...

Did Bankers Foment the “Civil War”?
Post Date: 2020-07-23 08:20:08 by Ada
n my last two columns, sufficient evidence was provided that the Lincoln regime was an unconstitutional war crime regime and that the so-called “civil war” was an act of northern aggression against the South initiated by Lincoln for the purpose of saving the Union. See: and Slavery was not an issue. The Southern states seceded because the Republicans passed a high tariff. For the North the issue was preserving the empire (saving the Union). Now comes defense attorney and former public prosecutor John Remington Graham. Was there a deeper underlying cause, an agenda ...

Why the Civil War Wasn’t About Slavery
Post Date: 2020-07-23 00:38:18 by X-15
From the 1870s to the late 1950s, there was an unofficial truce between the North and South. Each side recognized and saluted the courage of the other; it was conceded that the North fought to preserve the Union and because Old Glory had been fired on, and the Southerner fought for liberty and to defend his home; the two great heroes of the war were Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee; and the South admitted that slavery was wrong but never conceded that it was cruel. Around 1960, the Democratic Party—led by Lyndon B. Johnson—advanced the modern incarnation of identity politics. It worked very well for them. In the election of 1956, 75% of African-Americans voted Republican. By ...

Rollerball imagined a completely different future of fame
Post Date: 2020-07-20 03:29:45 by Bill D Berger
The movie: Rollerball (the 1975 original, not the 2002 remake) The future: Corporate nations and their supercomputers rule humanity, shaping digitized historical records to their liking. The masses are pacified by watching rollerball, a professional sport that’s like football played on a roller derby loop with motorcycles. Rollerball players have a glamorous existence: fans idolize them, executives envy them, and they’re provided lavish homes, beautiful wives or girlfriends, and fancy TVs with extra screens that show smaller, differently angled shots of whatever they’re watching. In return for all this, they let corporations control their lives.Jonathan E. (played by James ...

WHAT NATIVE AMERICANS ATE EVERY DAY BEFORE EUROPEANS CAME Shutterstock BY DEBRA KELLY / JULY 6, 2020 9:46 PM EDT When it comes to what our ancestor-Americans ate, we mostly hear about a certain period of time: after the while people arrived. And even that's largely wrong. According to the Smithsonian, Native Americans and colonial Europeans weren't exactly sharing mashed potatoes and pie: it was more along the lines of venison, porridge, and various types of wild- and water-fowl. But hey, turkey was probably there, so at least we got that much right. Finding out exactly what was on the menu at the first Thanksgiving was complicated, so imagine how tough it's been ...

The Real Legends and Lies of the “Civil War”
Post Date: 2020-07-17 01:38:46 by X-15
I caught a snatch of news the other day that, even with all that is happening in our time, stunned me. It seems that Hollywood is gearing up its machinery to produce entertainment about “Confederate War Crimes.” This so contradicts the historical record that it can represent nothing but willful ignorance, dishonesty, and malice. For Hollywood, anything they don’t like or find alien must be Nazi and atrocious. The Confederacy was fighting against an invader. It had no opportunity, even if it had wanted, to commit crimes against an enemy civilian population which it seldom saw. The war was on such a vast scale that you may find a few incidents of anything you want along the ...
