The REAL History of America: Half-truths, Indoctrination, and Capitalism out of Control
The history I was taught in school was very shallow and often very polished. That, however, was not the history and it may as well have been rewritten by a major advertising agency. As a native-born American with roots deep in this country since around 1790s, I figured it was time to speak out. My goal is not to knock America, but to expose the truths that have been kept from most of the average citizens who once were told they were the government. My goal is to educate average Americans like myself, who have become the proverbial "frog in the kettle," and to cause us to not only face our past properly, but to set out to ensure a good and proper nation ahead. I do not ask the reader to agree with me, but to consider the facts, then to research them for themselves. It's time our nation returned to educating citizens instead of indoctrinating them.

​The Military Is Shutting Down Its Weather-Controlling Death Beam | The REAL History of America: Half-truths, Indoctrination, and Capitalism out of Control | Scoop.it
Can a facility that has inspired global conspiracy theories be designated a World Heritage Site? If so, that might be the only way to prevent the shutdown of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) in Alaska, which studies the ionosphere—or creates lethal hurricanes—depending on whom you talk to.
Dr. Richard NeSmith's insight:

How many of us actually even knew our military has a death ray, much less is controlling some of the weather?

The U.S. and Saudi Arabia have supplied Syrian rebel groups with a small number of advanced American antitank missiles for the first time in a pilot program that could lead to larger flows of sophisticated weaponry, people briefed on the effort said.
Dr. Richard NeSmith's insight:

I find it alarming that our nation participates in gun running (selling of arms), especially to overthrow an established government. No wonder the world thinks we are bullies...and yet, most Americans would not support this IF THEY KNEW what was happening.
