Just finished watching this fast paced (and a bit confusing) Michael Moore style documentary on the destruction and rebuilding in an EU/US image of Yugoslavia.
It was an excellent deconstruction of the NATO Balkan assault of the 90s. In two hours you will know more about what really happened then 10 years of new bytes leaked past the Clinton-Lewinsky sideshow, clearly meant as distractive pablum for the American audience.
Fascinating history of the most reviled humans in recent history.
Even if it isn’t true, which I think it is, it should never be censored and its teller imprisoned.
These aren’t Fred’s boys.
Apparently I have missed Memorial Day by being on the road in Guanajuato. I gather I should have thanked Our Boys for their service to the exceptional nation. I will pass. My tolerance for nauseating twaddle has diminished with the years.

Here’s some black history you haven’t heard.
It is no exaggeration that this post deals with one of the greatest and perhaps least discussed deception in American history, and as far as I can tell, human history. It is the distortion and erasure of ‘black history,’ not only American but global. I’ll go straight to the point, and elaborate in the ensuing paragraphs: that the parts of the Americas reached by European ‘explorers’ initially and for the subsequent 300 years were populated mostly by indigenous people who would be and are today called black, that the trans-Atlantic slave trade for all intents and purposes never happened, and that the identities of ‘colored,’ ‘negro’ and later ‘African-American’ were manufactured by the Western political establishment in a 200-year campaign of paper genocide to deprive black people of their native America and (ostensibly, given the state of tribal sovereignty) pass sole claim to indigenous rights to nomadic and semi-nomadic, ethnically different people known as ‘Native Americans,’ who were a minority group in these first-encountered areas and a majority only in the Plains, Arctic, and Southwest regions.

Simon at clueforum.info has a post that discusses the “Jews are superior by birth” myth.
I contend that Jews, to survive, HAD to be really smart to survive in a hostile world.
I contend that Atlanticist-backed Hitler was manipulated (or ordered) to expel the Jews from Germany simply to destabilize Germany by removing its intellectuals and cultural leaders.
I contend its 95% nurture, and only 5% nature, that determines a human’s success in life.
Clearly, the Jews, who are no longer threatened, are lapsing into the great melting pot of society and losing their intellectual edge.
Bring on the Asians, as I posted here.
History is complex, and Hitler history has been twisted so badly that very few have a clue how he came about and who supported him.
This was certainly one of my favorite comic books. What an interesting history to its author and where his stories originated from.
The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most popular comic book stories ever. Its author Hergé, the pen name of the Belgian artist Georges Remi, published the first story in 1929 and left the last unfinished at his death in 1983.

I have one Irish line in my family tree. I did not know that the Irish were slaves. All I know of is the (fake) Great Potato Famine Myth. ABC’s blog has the details.
But, are we talking about African slavery? King James II and Charles I also led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain’s famed Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one’s next door neighbor.
The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.
