More > crashed into the mountains northeast of Marseille.

Paperback: $18.48
Prints in 3-5 business days

More > Tehran to Dubai. All 290 people on board died. Iran Air 655 flew within its assigned corridor. The USS Vincennes thought it had to deal with an Iranian F-14 fighter jet.

GOOCHELEN MET CIJFERS EN SJOEMELEN MET DE WAARHEID, Hoe de politiek ons voortdurend beliegt, bedriegt en voor de gek houdt By Dirk Barreveld
Paperback: $22.50

De voordelen van de euro, de Hoge Snelheidslijn, de Betuwe Lijn, de JSF, de Fyra, etc. het zijn allemaal voorbeelden van zaken waarbij onze overheid de zaken veel rooskleuriger voorstelde dan in... More > werkelijkheid het geval was. Waarom goochelen ze met cijfers en liegt men ons iedere keer voor? Weet men niet beter of doet men dit met opzet? Het is een grote puinhoop. Er is iets fundamenteel mis met de manier waarop onze overheid te werk gaat. We zitten nu al op een percentage allochtonen in onze bevolking dat hoger is dan toen de Vlamingen in 1600 en masse naar de Noordelijke Nederlanden vluchtten. Wie gaat dat allemaal betalen? Dan is er het failliete Amerika, daar kan niemand meer onderuit. Als Europa er niet in slaagt om de miljoenen stroom ‘vluchtelingen’ te keren dan wacht ons hetzelfde lot als de Romeinen in het jaar 469. Ons bestaan staat serieus ter discussie, dat is geen grap. Houdt onze overheid ons voor de gek?< Less
