The Evidence that Convicts the CIA of the JFK Assassination
Post Date: 2023-08-12 11:10:37 by Ada
Longtime readers of my work on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy know that I point to the evidence establishing the fraudulent autopsy that was conducted on JFK’s body to convict the U.S. military establishment of criminal complicity in the assassination itself. That’s because there is no innocent explanation for a fraudulent autopsy. Once one concludes that the autopsy that the military conducted on JFK’s body was fraudulent, one has automatically concluded that the military establishment was criminally complicit in the assassination itself. There is no way around that. The evidence of autopsy fraud is set forth in my books The Kennedy Autopsy, The Kennedy ...

The Abominable August 9th
Post Date: 2023-08-08 10:50:21 by Ada
I assume that for any date on the calendar we might find a number of important historical events. For example, December 7th has been tagged as “a date that will live in infamy” by FDR, the person who instigated the Pearl Harbor disaster. Here I make the case that August 9th can be called The Abominable. Wikipedia lists historical events for August 9th. The event that stands out as abominable is the atomic bombing of Nagasaki in 1945. On that morning, the B-29 Bockscar, lifted off from Tinian island (where my father was that very day serving as a Marine radar operator) with the bomb called Fat Man. Nagasaki was the secondary target that day, There has been much debate about why ...

Cowpens: America's Most Perfect Battle
Post Date: 2023-08-05 19:53:01 by BTP Holdings
The January 1781 American defeat of the British at Cowpens, South Carolina is one of the most ingeniously scripted displays of tactical genius, ever, by an American commander. Some historians call it “the most perfect battle fought in the Americas” The American commander, Brigadier General Daniel Morgan, a self-taught frontiersman, outwitted, and his forces outfought, the well-trained British regulars, finishing the battle with a military maneuver history rarely sees: a double envelopment. The battle served as inspiration for the final battle of Mel Gibson’s 2000 film “The Patriot.” Cowpens was a turning point in the war, the British surrendered ten months later. ...

Warren G. Harding’s Turnaround of America
Post Date: 2023-08-02 09:23:45 by Ada
Today marks the one hundredth anniversary of the death of Warren Gamaliel Harding, a man almost universally identified as one of the worst Presidents ever. In truth, Harding was not nearly as bad as history has treated him. Writers like Ryan S. Walters (in his recent book Harding: The Jazz Age President) have made well-researched efforts to demonstrate that Harding’s administration was actually a successful model of conservatism. The established narrative goes something like this: Harding, a likeable but dull and unimaginative newspaper publisher from Marion, Ohio, runs for the Ohio legislature at the behest of local Republicans and is elected to the state senate. There he meets a ...

Silas Deane: Founding Father, Spy, And Loyalist?
Post Date: 2023-08-01 20:21:39 by BTP Holdings
Silas Deane: Founding Father, Spy, And Loyalist? By Truth Press Published 28 July 2023 Today marks the anniversary of the tragic story of Silas Deane, a Founding Father who was later banned from America and died under mysterious circumstances. Deane, a member of the early Continental Congress, was given a task crucial to the young nation’s survival: secure its military and political alliance with France. In early 1776, Deane was assigned by the Secret Committee of Congress to “visit” France, and he quickly became a secret agent of sorts. While there, he worked to arrange military arms and other supplies from France to the Continental Army. On July 27, 1776, Deane was ...

East Germany 1989 - the march that KO'd communism

East Germany 1989 - the march that KO'd communism Published 14 October 2019 Leipzig 1989: East Germans defy communist rule with huge demo By Laurence Peter BBC News Nobody had a mobile phone or social media to mobilise supporters back in 1989. But East Germans fed up with communism poured into the streets of Leipzig, despite extraordinary restrictions on their personal freedom. "We didn't have a phone at home - we weren't allowed, and they would have been listening in any case," recalls Katrin Hattenhauer, one of the organisers of the Monday demonstrations in Leipzig, East Germany's second city. A candle-lit mass protest on 9 October became the turning ...

RFK Jr. vs. I.F. Stone on the Kennedy Assassinations
Post Date: 2023-07-31 10:25:36 by Ada
Under the right circumstances, even an unsuccessful Presidential campaign can serve as a powerful lens for focusing public attention upon issues normally avoided by the mainstream media. I think that the success or failure of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s longshot Democratic Party primary challenge to President Joseph Biden should best be considered in such terms. Kennedy bears the name of the most famous political family in modern American history and that legacy, together with his leadership role in criticizing our controversial Covid public health policies and his #1 Amazon best-seller in 2022, quickly established him as a serious candidate in the race. The early polls gave him ...

Apache Prisoner | What it's Like to be Kidnapped by the Most TERRIFYING Indian Tribe
Post Date: 2023-07-30 20:37:54 by BTP Holdings
The true story of an 11 year old boy is captured by Apache Warriors and becomes one of them on his path to survival. An excerpt from the introduction of Lehmann’s book, Nine Years Among the Indians, will tell the story just as well as I can. “He was captured by a band of Apache Indians when he was about eleven years old, and lived with this tribe for four years; later he became involved in difficulties with members of the tribe and was forced to flee for his life. He went out into the wilderness, where alone in the mountains he remained for about a year, and later he went to the Comanches, into which tribe he was adopted, and he remained with them until he was finally restored ...

They Don't Dare Tell You What the 4th Is About
Post Date: 2023-07-04 09:37:30 by Ada
From the Tom Woods Letter: Independence Day is tomorrow, and I wonder how many people really get why it matters. In school, we were told this: “No taxation without representation.” Zzzzzzzz. The real principles were more like the following. (1) No legislation without representation. The colonists insisted that they could be governed only by the colonial legislatures. This is the principle of self-government. This is what the War for Independence was all about: local self-government. Yet today, when the Supreme Court says the federal government has no authority over a particular issue and that it is better decided at the state level, instead of being pleased that the ...

More Truth About World War II
Post Date: 2023-07-03 10:58:31 by Ada
Last week I noted some facts that puncture the myth of the neocons who control the government that World War II was the “good war,” a battle of good against evil, that shows the need for perpetual war. We must fight Russia and China, they say: we don’t want another “Munich,” do we? The facts tell a different story. The war in Europe began after Britain and France declared war on Germany on September 3, 1939. These countries had issued a guarantee to Poland of its border with Germany, and Germany’s invasion on September 1 triggered the guarantee. As Murray Rothbard points out, the guarantee was a colossal mistake. There was no possibility Britain and France ...

Tora! Tora! Tora!
Post Date: 2023-07-02 14:45:36 by BTP Holdings
Tora! Tora! Tora! is the Japanese signal to attack - and the movie meticulously recreates the attack on Pearl Harbor and the events leading up to it. Opening scenes contrast the American and Japanese positions. Japanese imperialists decide to stage the attack. Top U.S. brass ignore it's possibility. Intercepted Japanese messages warn of it - but never reach F.D.R.'s desk. Radar warnings are disregarded. Even the entrapment of a Japanese submarine in Pearl Harbor before the attack goes unreported. Ultimately the Day of Infamy arrives - in the most spectacular, gut-wrenching cavalcade of action-packed footage ever. You'll see moments of unsurpassed spectacle and heroism: U.S. ...

Trump only living US president not descended from slaveholders – Reuters
Post Date: 2023-06-28 07:04:49 by Ada
An ancestor of Joe Biden owned an enslaved 14-year-old boy, according to a genealogical study Five of the six living US presidents are direct descendants of slaveholders, according to an investigation by Reuters published on Tuesday. The comprehensive study, released just days after the country celebrated the ‘Juneteenth’ federal holiday on June 19, which commemorates the emancipation of African American slaves, details that Donald Trump is the only living current or former US head of state not to have familial links to slavery. The ancestors of current President Joe Biden, as well as Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, are all descended from ...

The Truth About World War II
Post Date: 2023-06-26 09:51:27 by Ada
The neocons who control brain-dead Biden tell us over and over that World War II was the “good war.” Didn’t we have to stop Hitler from conquering the world? They say this in order to justify their plans to start a nuclear war against Russia and China. If you look at the facts rather than neocon propaganda, World War II looks very different. Jacob Hornberger points out some of these “discomforting facts” in an article written in 2019: “Given the predictable accolades regarding the 75th anniversary of D-Day in World War II — it’s important for Americans to keep in mind some discomforting facts about the so-called good war: Prior to U.S. entry into ...

I Was In The Biggest Tank Battle In History And It Was Brutal Poster Comment:We had a Sudeten-German as a foreman on state highways. He was captured by the Russians and was one of the few to be repatriated. He told us once, "In the old country we didn't have pot holes. We had cobblestones." One time they were out filling potholes. They ran out of asphalt and he was calling on the radio for more cold patch. I grabbed the mic for the radio and said, "Ya, in ze old country ve had za cobblestones." The guy in the pickup with him told me when that came over the air he said, "Dammit!" ROTFLOL

More Falsehoods of World War II
Post Date: 2023-06-19 08:10:25 by Ada
World War II ranks as the greatest military conflict in human history and became the shaping event of our modern world, with the account told in many tens of thousands of books. But over the last five years I’ve published a long series of articles providing elements of the story that are sharply—sometimes even shockingly—at odds with the standard narrative. About a year ago, I’d produced print collections of my writings and made them available on Amazon, with one of those volumes including most of my World War II essays. Even if someone had previously looked at a few of my articles when they’d originally appeared four or five years ago, the impact of reading ...

The largely unknown story of the first Ukrainian refugees in Britain - an entire SS division composed largely of Ukrainians who arrived in 1947, with many later emigrating to Canada - the 14th SS Galizien. Why did the British Government permit them to settle, and why are they today considered national heroes in Ukraine? Poster Comment:Those who fail to know history are doomed to repeat it.

How "Squatter Democracy" Created America's First Welfare Program
Post Date: 2023-06-14 11:05:39 by Ada
With the rise of homeless camps and tent cities in many American cities, the issue of squatting has become a cause for alarm among many residents and policymakers. In many cases parks, sidewalks, and other public rights-of-way have been taken over by people living in tents or makeshift shelters, rendering the areas unusable to most area residents. In other cases, some of these homeless people have taken over empty businesses and homes that were left unattended long enough for squatters to take over. The use of the term “squatter” to refer to those living on land they never paid for is generally not used to suggest approval. In modern parlance, squatters are often regarded as ...

America Has Suffered a Coup

A while ago I reported to my readers that for several years the most widely read articles on my website were those presenting the overwhelming evidence that Germany did not start World War II, so striking were the facts from the false narrative we had been told. Ron Unz has also exposed the false World War II narrative, and he returned to the subject on June 12. For those of you who missed the true story, you can begin your journey to reality here: wrong/ Be certain to watch David Irving’s lecture, which is included in Unz’s article and can be found here: Click for Full Text!

Insider Col L Fletcher Prouty discusses the JFK assassination and America's clandestine history
Post Date: 2023-06-11 19:01:14 by BTP Holdings
This 1992 interview has excellent insights into the ongoing fight against oligarchy that we are involved in. Colonel Prouty gives us a look at the inner workings of the US intelligence community from the inside. If you don't have time to read his book, "The Secret Team: The CIA And Its Allies In Control Of The World," watch this video. His description of the period after WWII leading into the Vietnam War is critical for Americans to understand.
