by John Fiske

The Age of Revolution is the period from approximately 1774 to 1849 in which a number of significant revolutionary movements occurred in many parts of Europe and the Americas. The period is noted for the change in government from absolutist monarchies to constitutionalist states and republics. Two most significant events of the period were the American Revolution and the French Revolution. This book gives the complete insight into these events, explaining the causes and consequences of two major revolutions that changed the entire course of human history.



Mueller Investigation Indictments Condemns President: Donald Trumpâ??s Bird Box Challenge Lingers in 2019

by Dave Masko

Mueller Investigation Indictments Condemns President, by Dave Masko. With special counsel Robert Mueller indicting more than 33 people who served Donald Trump’s authoritarian administration thus far at the start of 2019, most Americans have just one wish for 2019 and that is to remove odious Trump from the White House because many seniors have told this “new journalism” reporter they are “sick in their hearts and minds about how Trump pisses on American values and democracy.” In fact, the news from sources working with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump Family and Administration Treason, have found proof of Trump backing Russian meddling in the presidential election of 2016; while there’s “a lot of buzz about just how much hard evidence of collusion that Robert Mueller’s team have on Trump’s and his crazed family and GOP supporters,” said Blane Thompson, a longtime new journalism radio reporter from Portland, Oregon, who recently broke news at the start of 2019 that, “Trump and his family will be indicted no later than the end of February with the following month truly being the â??Ides of March’ for Trump being formally charged with congressional Trump Impeachment hearings to follow,” added Thompson, 67, who reported for the New York City newspapers in the 1970s when Thompson says, “Trump was always viewed as a â??no-good’ rich SOB that nobody liked or trusted.” Sadly, famed retired Gen. Jim Mattis had to resign at Trump’s defense secretary at the end of 2018 because General Mattis no longer wanted to be linked to Trump administration chaos. There was even a televised view outside the White House with General Mattis giving friends the high-five after resigning from Trump’s odious authoritarian model of being an American president. This special “new journalism” Kindle e-book report looks at the Who, What, When, Where, Why and How of Trump’s fall and why 2019 will be the end of the road for this 72-year-old New York City millionaire and con-man who has kept his tax returns top secret until now that Mueller’s team has linked “the money trail from Trump to Russia.” There’s also deep concern that Trump will try and hurt American values and democracy more when he uses his paid-off legal eagles to save him and his family from jail time for betraying the nation, says longtime new journalism reporter Thomas Phipps of Portland, Oregon. Phipps, 76, also thinks “Trump disparaging General Jim Mattis just after this good man served the nation as secretary of defense for two years is just nuts. Who does that to a general like Jim Mattis?” Phipps reminds readers that Trump received five exemptions from the Vietnam War draft because Trump’s father got a doctor to write a statement that “the Donald” had painful bone spurs. Go figure? Phipps also hopes incoming Republican Senator Mitt Romney will stick to his view that Trump has not risen to the job of president. Senator Romney kicked off 2019 by writing a scathing editorial about Trump asserting, “on balance, his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions of this month (December 2018), is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.”

New Guinea was a great place to visit during the 1970s, but if don’t know much about today. I remember snorkelling on the reef off Madang. It wasn’t until I came back to the beach I saw the â??Beware of Crocodiles’ sign which faced seawards. The â??are-see’ gag actually happened on a flight across the United States.

New Zealand and the British Empire: The History of New Zealand under British Sovereignty

“When one house dies, a second lives.” – Maori proverb

By the mid-17th century, the existence of a land in the south referred to as Terra Australis was generally known and understood by the Europeans, and incrementally, its shores were observed and mapped. Van Diemen’s Land, an island off the south coast of Australia now called Tasmania, was identified in 1642 by Dutch mariner Abel Tasman, and a few months later, the intrepid Dutchman would add New Zealand to the map of the known world.

At the time, the English were the greatest naval power in Europe, but they arrived on the scene rather later. The first to appear was William Dampier, captain of the HMS Roebuck, in 1699, after he had been granted a Royal Commission by King William III to explore the east coast of New Holland. By then, the general global balance of power was shifting, and with the English gaining a solid foothold in India, their supremacy in the Indian Ocean trade zone began. The Dutch, once predominant in the region, began slowly to lose ground, slipping out of contention as a major global trading power. So too were the Portuguese, also once dominant in the region. It was now just the French and the English who were facing one another down in a quest to dominate the world, but their imperial interests were focused mainly in India and the East Indies, as well as the Caribbean and the Americas. As a result, the potential of a vast, practically uninhabited great southern continent did not yet hold much interest.

By then the world was largely mapped, with just regions such as the Arctic Archipelago and the two poles remaining terra incognita. A few gaps needed to be filled in here and there, but all of the essential details were known. At the same time, a great deal of imperial energy was at play in Europe, particularly in Britain. Britain stood at the cusp of global dominance thanks almost entirely to the Royal Navy, which emerged in the 17th and 18th centuries as an institution significantly more than the sum of its parts. With vast assets available even in peacetime, expeditions of science and explorations were launched in every direction. This was done not only to claim ownership of the field of global exploration, but also to undercut the imperial ambitions of others, in particular the French.

In 1769, Captain James Cook’s historic expedition in the region would lead to an English claim on Australia, but before he reached Australia, he sailed near New Zealand and spent weeks mapping part of New Zealand’s coast. Cook later asserted that the only major sources of timber and flax in the Pacific region were to be found in New Zealand and Norfolk Island, which would prove crucial to the British Empire and the Royal Navy in particular, and Cook also provided a firsthand account of a tense standoff with New Zealand’s indigenous natives on the shoreline. Over the next 90 years, Cook’s journey and his account would lay the basis for British activities in the region, and those activities would forge the modern history of New Zealand at a great cost.

New Zealand and the British Empire: The History of New Zealand under British Sovereignty analyzes the expeditions that discovered New Zealand, the early settlements and conflicts waged there from 1650-1850, and the exploration that mapped New Zealand and led to its status as a dominion. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about New Zealand under British sovereignty like never before.

Ancient Indian encryption: KaTaPaYadi sytem

by Dee hetvik

Ancient India was far more scientific and thousands time more creative that we are right now. The Indian Ancient saints used to write Sanskrit shlokas (poems) to encrypt unique formulas, theories and many more valuable information’s inside their poems. Because the ancient Indian people knew that remembering the loads of numbers in the poetic form is easier, than in its original, numeric form.
In the adventure of ancient Indian encryption technique, our very epic and holy book Geeta, which had a main hero lord shri Krishna, is being prayed by a poem; if that poem is enlisted or converted by Ka, Ta, Pa, YaDi system, we get the very accurate value of Pi.
Adding more into this list, another use of this system is found in decoding the starting time period of kalikyuga.
They used KaTaPaYadi encryption technique way before the introduction of Binary and ASCII number system.



Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst: The Lives and Careers of the Publishers Who Transformed the Media Industry

“Publicity, publicity, publicity is the greatest moral factor and force in our public life.” – Joseph Pulitzer

“Any man who has the brains to think and the nerve to act for the benefit of the people of the country is considered a radical by those who are content with stagnation and willing to endure disaster.” – William Randolph Hearst

Say the name Pulitzer and the minds of many across the world quickly turn to the famous prizes given for excellence in journalism, literature, and music, but these prizes were named after a man believed to have been tormented by some of the choices he had made during his life. Coming to America as a nearly penniless immigrant, he demonstrated that the young nation could be a land of opportunity, and he earned money and fame largely through hard work. Later, as the owner of one of the most powerful papers in the country, he seemed to develop an almost frenzied need to stay on top, no matter the cost. Writing for the Post-Dispatch in 1997, Harry Levins observed that Pulitzer considered journalism “a serious instrument of civilization, yet in some periods filled his front pages with froth and sensationalism. Sided with the common man, yet lived like the Gilded Age millionaire he was. Waxed indignant at big business and its profit-seeking machinations, yet insisted that his own big business turn a tidy profit.”

Indeed, in an effort to turn a profit, plenty of his contemporaries believed he went way too far. In a battle to sell papers, he played a significant role in the burgeoning industry of “yellow journalism,” and following the Spanish-American War, he often struggled to come to terms with the role he had played in getting America involved in that conflict. As he grew older, he would attempt to step away from that reputation, and in an effort to redeem himself, he bequeathed much of his fortune to organizations that could establish scholarships and even the first school of journalism, teaching future journalists who came after him to do better.

When William Randolph Hearst was in his late 50s and at the height of his power, journalist Robert Duffuss observed, “His career is unique in American history, or, for that matter, all history. Compared with him the Bennetts and even the Pulitzers are smallâ?¦his acquaintancesâ?¦credit him with personal charm, but do not deny his ruthlessness in business operations. Shopkeepers and his nearest rivals are simply not in his class. Here is success on a dizzying and truly American scale. Here is journalism as large as the Rocky Mountains or the Painted Desert.”

It is only right to keep every positive and negative viewpoint in mind when looking at the life of a man who built his own fortune with money inherited from a father who literally grubbed it out of the ground with his own hands. While the senior Hearst may never have gotten the soil of old California from under his nails, William Randolph would never know what it felt like to live a life of manual labor; instead, he founded his empire on another kind of dirt, that which he was able to dig up and publish about the people, great and small, of his day. He would also stir up a good bit of dirt himself, living a high life with his mistress in California while his wife raised their children and did charitable work back in New York. Eventually, he would go too far, and nearly lose his empire when he backed Adolf Hitler over Franklin D. Roosevelt. By the time he died, it is fair to say that he had seen it all, done it all, bought most of it, and lost much of it. In spite of all this, he left behind an empire that continues to dominate the publishing business to this day.



The Dead Massacre

by Rahmouni K

Every one desires to live as long as he can. Every one values health “above all gold and treasure.” Everyone knows that as far as his own individual good is concerned, protracted life and a frame of body sound and strong, free from the thousand pains that flesh is heir to, are unspeakably more important than all other objects, because life and health must be secured before any possible result of any possible circumstance can be of consequence to him.

THE CONSPIRACY THEORY REPORT VOLUME ONE: THE TACHYONIC ANTITELEPHONE The real reason for the Voyager Missions, including the JFK assassination and other influenced events

by Barry McGaw

The never before told story of the Tachyonic Antitelephone, an actual device which allows information to be sent back in time using messages bounced into space.
First developed with the assistance of the US Defence Dept in 1959, this device has been successfully used many times to alter world events, including the JFK Assassination, the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis, as well as a number of other operations.
The device relies on its ability to accelerate sub-atomic particles past the speed of light, which are then beamed into space, accelerating in zero gravity to the Voyager 1 & 2 space probes currently in the outer reaches of our Solar System, where they are “bounced” off the radio communications antennae – arriving back on Earth BEFORE they left.
The phenomenon (of FTL) was first discovered by accident in a synchro-cyclotron in 1959 and then discussed at the first meeting of JASON in the same year, after-which the discovery was re-tested at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories in California before being transferred to MIT’s Lincoln Laboratories in Massachusetts.
The results were verified and the program was classified above top-secret, known only to the highest authorities in the CIA and Pentagon.
The program has since been successfully developed and used by the United States Government as a highly effective intelligence tool, for counter intelligence, training and “red flag” operations, but has also been used a number of times in connection with world events, in order to alter the outcome of those events.
The Conspiracy Theory Report – Volume One explores the discovery and inception of the program, as well as its highly controversial usage in relation to events including JFK’s much debated assassination, the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the sinking of a Soviet K129 class submarine in 1968, the Chappaquiddick incident, the assassination attempts on Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan, as well as the successful capture and assassinations of Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi (and others).
The Conspiracy Theory Report had been seeking a “new” conspiracy to test (in the hope of being able to “de-bunk” the theory) and had been supplied with the information on the tachyonic antitelephone from an anonymous source, in response to our blog.
We have attempted to verify the information contained in the lengthy dossier presented to us, but at this time we have been unable to locate anyone who can provide such verification.
The Conspiracy Theory Report are therefore unable to verify the validity of the information in the dossier, which is presented in its entirety, purported to have been prepared by the grandson of a former scientist involved in the initial inception and development of the program (now deceased). The un-named grandson wishes to remain anonymous but is concerned the program will remain un-discovered and un-remarked and used only by the “elite” to their ends, while he considers it could be used in a better manner and for the advancement of humanity.
We present the information to the public for analysis and comment.
