    This fall the Indians on a remote reservation asked their new Chief Oyarde if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.

"It's going to be a very cold winter." So just to be on the safe side, Oyarde told his tribe that the...

    Did you get your flu shot yet?

    The flu shot this year may be worth getting. It contains updates that were not in last year’s vaccine. Last year (2017), the FDA simply used the same vaccine combination from the previous year (2016), and not only was it redundant and unnecessary for people who had been vaccinated the prior year, it was a poor match for the viruses that circulated last year and early this year, including a...

    Comprehensive research has shown not only that Washington knew in advance of the attack, but that it deliberately withheld its foreknowledge from our commanders in Hawaii in the hope that the "surprise" attack would catapult the U.S. into World War II. Oliver Lyttleton, British Minister of Production, stated in 1944: "Japan was provoked into attacking America at Pearl Harbor. It is a...
