    World War I: What weapons did they really use?

    My question about weapons is a rhetorical one. We know what weapons were used. Some of those were pretty big, some were straight up huge, but still, would they cause all this? How much shelling does it take to cause that much damage? Below are a few WWI images I googled out. Here are...

    Ran into a couple of interesting photographs depicting buildings damaged by the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. That is per the PTB, of course. The Great Chicago Fire was a conflagration that burned in the American city of Chicago during October 8–10, 1871. The fire killed approximately 300...

    Helen of Troy, The Fountain of Light and the Eye of Ra Device

    This article is a wild hypothesis at best. I am not aware of any older images, or texts supporting what I am about to suggest. That is that Helen from Troy was either not a human, or, if she was a human, she was a woman-operator of a specific device. As we know, per the narrative, the Trojan...

    Questionable Alexander the Great Narrative

    This is something I wanted to get to for the longest. Alexander the Great is one of the most prominent historical figures attributed to the Age of Antiquity. The achievements attributed to Alexander are truly amazing. I would like to apologize beforehand, in case he really did all those things...

    Was tinkering with some WW2 equipment facts. Essentially I have one question for the blog visitors: Could the entire WW2 time World produce what allegedly was produced between 1938 and 1945? That is 8 years. The article lists the duration as 1938 through 1945 Here are the facts: Military...

    1799: Destruction of the English Fleet

    1799 is when the image was published, that is my understanding. Anyways, the Google Translated description to the image sounds like this. Fire of the English fleet: the English fleet burned down by the Greek fire and that of the new floating towers, armed with mouths to protect on the coasts...

    Electric Machine Guns, Coilguns and Death Ray Guns of Yesteryear

    Some things the past presents us with are not in the traditional textbooks. One of those things is the 1845 "Siva" Electric Machine gun. The "successful" machine gun history (per the narrative) started in 1862 and goes like this: The first successful machine-gun designs were developed in the...

    Renaissance Cannons: Mysterious and Misunderstood

    It appears that 15th, 16th century cannons were conceptually superior to the ones used in the wars predating approximately 1840s. The name of the game here is stagnation and degradation. I guess, not all cannons were created equal, and some were better than others. Pseudo-historians, what...

    1899-1901: Boxer Rebellion. What are they hiding?

    Posting this to emphasize that all of our contemporary country vs. country conflicts are made up, and are a part of the game. In my opinion, countries answer to the same Controller (TPTB). Back in the day, when our current PTB was in the process of taking over the World, they were more revealing...

    1870: Franco-Prussian War. Missing Combat Photographs.

    Here is another 19th century photographic absentee. How historians were getting away with things like this is hard to understand.

    Three Wars - Where Are Combat Photographs?

    Just donned on me. We do not have a single combat photograph from three major wars/conflicts which took place in the 19th century. 1. Crimean War: 1853 - 1856 2. American Civil War: 1861 - 1865 3. Paris Commune: 18 March – 28 May 1871 Let us get some things out of the way first. I'm...

    1876: French Ironclad Redoutable - another example of Tartarian technology?

    This is a build up on my other related articles: 1854-59 ship: SS Great Eastern a.k.a. Leviathan Our civilization did not build Titanic, Olympic or Britannic. Theirs did. Was it the Tartarian one? The idea behind these series of articles is that if we can not explain what technology was used...
