While searching the internet for geneology information, I came across an article that spoke of Senator John McCain's distinguished military career and warrior... More > roots. The article stated his claim to be a descendant of a famous 14th Century Scottich warrior was however, incorrect. I have discovered things about my own genealogy that have astounded me. Richard "The Fearless" de Normandy is possibly my triple great grandfather. In other words, I could be a direct descendant of three of his eight children. Six English Kings and William Marshal (The Greatest Knight/seperate line) are in my direct lines (my mother's line). In addition, my father provides a direct line to "The Fearless". We are all pretty much related; buy my book to read about my amazing geneology and determine if we have common ancestry. In addition, I have provided tips for discovering your geneology even if we're not related.< Less

Mermaids, Witches & Amazons By William Bond
eBook (PDF): $3.91
BLACK AND WHITE. Mermaids, Witches and Amazons are seen as mythical women. The official line is that Mermaids were sea cows, while witches are the result of the Christian Church‘s paranoia.... More > Amazons are hardly mentioned at all, even though archaeologists have unearthed the graves of female warriors. Official history claims that civilization started with the Ancient Egyptians and Mesopotamians 5,000 years ago. Yet, archaeologists have excavated towns and cities far older than this back in the Neolithic age. Scientists have for most of the 20th century told the public that man evolved from the apes when he climbed down the trees and learnt to hunt game on the Savannah. What the public is not told about is the Aquatic Ape theory, which explains human evolution far better. This book is about Her-story and the true facts behind the myths of mermaids, witches and Amazons, as well as the history of the mysterious sea-people and the facts about the bonobo ape, which is a living missing link between apes and humans.< Less

More > a Scottish author and government reformer who campaigned on a Chartist platform. But he concluded that more progress would come from new attitudes than from new laws.

In 1957-58, the CIA,instructed by Eisenhower and JF Dulles performed the till-then largest covert military action in US history, in support of a regional rebellion against the neutralist Indonesian... More > government. The rebellion failed. In the following years Indonesia turned more authoritarian. In US eyes, the country’s drift seemed to be towards becoming the world’s third major communist country, threatening to become the "greatest loss since the fall of China." However, in 1965 an allegedly communist coup attempt led to a military counter-coup led by Suharto. After a massacre of roughly half a million claimed communists, Suharto took power. Indonesia re-aligned itself with the US and recreated its links with the west. Regional power shifted in US favor, and the vital maritime passageways were secured for both military and commercial purposes. Likewise, Indonesian natural and military resources were safely out of communist hands. This dissertation traces US policy in the vital years 1961-1965< Less
