  • Has $55MILLION of gold lost during the Battle of Gettysburg finally been discovered? [tr]

    Has $55million worth of lost gold from the Civil War era been found in central Pennsylvania? That's what locals seem to believe after FBI agents, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and treasure hunters Dennis and Kem Parada were seen digging around a remote area in Benezette Township, called Dents Run. Dennis and his son Kem, the owners of the treasure hunting organization Finders Keepers, have claimed for years that 52 gold bars were buried under a fire pit at Dents Run more than 150 years ago during the Battle of Gettysburg.

    On both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, former British MI-6 Intelligence Officer Christopher Steele is going to extremes to avoiding answering questions from the United States Congress, while at the same time avoiding being videotaped and deposed in a multi-million dollar libel case brought against Buzzfeed. The media outlet published the unverified Trump dossier just over a year ago, setting off an international firestorm. Steele was a no-show Monday for a long-requested deposition in London, Fox News has learned. The news comes as Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., have announced a criminal referral...
  • FBI report in new JFK release claims Martin Luther King Jr had 'all-night sex orgy' [tr]

    An FBI report has been declassified as part of the newly released John F. Kennedy assassination files, and claims Martin Luther King Jr had an 'all-night sex orgy' at a training workshop. The report released on Friday was written just weeks before the revered civil rights leader was assassinated in 1968, and details allegations about a workshop King held earlier that year in Miami. The FBI's sex smears against King have been well known for years, but the newly released 20-page report offers new insight into the harsh portrait the Bureau attempted to paint of him as he campaigned for...

    Washington Post ^ | October 15, 2017 | Dan Morse and Michael E. Miller
    Late Sunday morning, hundreds of Civil War reenactors concluded their battle on a rolling patch of grass 80 miles west of Washington. In normal years, taps would be played and each side would march back to its tent encampments. But this was hardly a normal year. Last week, organizers announced they had received a letter threatening “bodily harm” to attendees. And Saturday, the battlefield had to be temporarily cleared because a suspicious device, possibly a pipe bomb, was found.
  • Scientists solve mystery of US Civil War submarine: Blast from Hunley’s own torpedo [tr]

    Nature ^ | August 23, 2017 | Ben Upton
    Researchers say they’ve solved one of the most enduring mysteries of the American Civil War: what caused the puzzling demise of the H.L. Hunley, the first combat submarine in history to sink an enemy warship. The Confederate craft famously disappeared with all its crew on 17 February 1864, just after destroying the USS Housatonic in Charleston Harbour. The Hunley’s wreck was not found until 1995. When it was raised from the seabed in 2000, the skeletons of its eight-man crew were still at their stations, with no evidence of escape attempts.

    War is Boring ^ | May 1, 2017 | Kevin Knodell
    John S. Mosby, known as the “Gray Ghost,” was a Virginian who became legendary for his leadership of Mosby’s Rangers—a band of Confederate guerrilla fighters that harassed the Union Army and went toe-to-toe with George Armstrong Custer in the Shenandoah Valley. Mosby is still highly regarded as a strategist and tactician and is studied to this day by practitioners of unconventional warfare. He lived a long life, dying early in the 20th century, and was also a lawyer, a diplomat and author who wrote about his experiences during the war.

    Suggestions on how to legally and peacefully protest with firearms. WHY Participate in Civil Disobedience with Guns? Was there a point during the Obama administration that you felt threatened and powerless? Were you convinced the government was sincerely committed to securing your constitutional rights and ensuring law and order? Were you certain that your military and law enforcement were being allowed to keep you safe from invaders, jihadists and revolutionaries? Were you confident your objection to Obama's fundamental transformation was being heard when you voted in 2010, 2014? The Obama administration was a soft tyranny, a silent communist insurgency that...

    Nine years ago, a driver lost control of his pickup truck and crashed into the Confederate monument on the front lawn of the Franklin County Courthouse, decapitating the marble soldier. Some locals who found the monument offensive said they were glad to see it go, but there was never much doubt that once the money was raised, the soldier would be back. The rededication ceremony in 2010 drew a crowd of about 500 people—women wore hoop skirts and men donned the gray uniforms of Confederate soldiers. “We’re very proud of it,” says Linda Stanley, managing director of the Franklin County...

That's where police can seize your property and cash without first proving you committed a crime; without a warrant and without arresting you, as long as they suspect that your property is somehow tied to a crime. Now, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol has a device that also allows them to seize money in your bank account or on prepaid cards. It's called an ERAD, or...

    Barack Obama sent out his final Passover greeting as US president on Friday, recalling his 2009 tradition-making seder — the first ever at the White House, and drawing a parallel between the story of the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt and the battle for civil rights across the globe. “Mah nishtana halailah hazeh?,” the president wrote, quoting the Four Questions asked during the Jewish service on the first night of Passover. The Hebrew phrase means: “Why is this night different from all other nights?” The president continued: “For Michelle and me, this Passover is different from all other Passovers because it...

    It will use 150,000 tonnes of concrete - nearly as much as the whole of the London Olympics - and contain enough cable to go around the world three times. And at £1.14billion the new bridge over the Firth of Forth is one of the biggest civil engineering projects undertaken in Britain in recent years, creating 1,300 jobs. Designed to take some of the strain off the old Forth Road bridge, which was recently closed due to safety fears, the Queensferry crossing is now taking shape with the three towers which will support the structure in place.

    Pope Francis warns marriage has been stretched and distorted in the United States, to the point where it is no longer even similar to the Christian sacrament of matrimony. The pontiff noted the “unprecedented changes” taking place in contemporary society, “with their social, cultural – and sadly now juridical – effects on family bonds,” referring to the Supreme Course decision in June to legalize same-sex marriage for the entire nation in Obergefell v. Hodges.

    Is it Time for Civil Disobedience? “Is this the act of a government worthy of our respect?” When the government rules by illegitimate means, is it legitimate to peacefully stand in defiance and disobey? The answer to this question is a reluctant “yes.” I have thought about this question for a long time and, as a former police officer and federal agent who pledged his life to upholding and enforcing the law, I take this call to action very seriously. In a piece (http://www.bornfreeamericanwoman.com/blog/) out yesterday by Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party, a group victimized by the IRS...
