Unpacking a World of Myths in "Columbus Discovered America" This is part 1 of a 2-part series debunking the 'Columbus Discovered America' myth that he "discovered" a land that was barely populated, uncivilized and undeveloped, an untamed wilderness despite millions of people already living there for thousands of years. Part 2 debunks the Columbus-as-hero myth through his own words as well as eye witnesses to his genocidal polices, which led to the opening of the African slave trade.

Raise Your Hand If You Think We Should Go To War With Russia The American people are being subject to the most intense full-spectrum anti-Russia propaganda campaign since the promotion of lies about WMD's in Iraq. Mainstream media like the NY Times and Washington Post are again playing major roles in manufacturing consent, prepping the public to accept and support military conflict with Russia.
