Stalin's Mysteriious DeathStalin's Mysterious Death

In a historic medical article published in Surgical Neurology International, Dr. Faria cites compelling evidence that the Soviet dictator was likely poisoned under the direction of his right hand henchman, Lavrenti Beria, with the very probable connivance of Nikita Khrushchev, who eventually succeeded Stalin and went on to dismantle Stalin's Cult of Personality and expose the "errors" of the former regime.

Each year, the Tax Foundation announces Tax Freedom Day, the day when average Americans stop working for the government and start working for themselves.

So far, this year Tax Freedom Day seems to be April 23, a day earlier than last year. It is a sign of how serious this problem has become that we rejoice at a one-day improvement. But wait — the new tax plan is still gestating. Like a baby elephant, it seems to require an extraordinarily long time before it is born. When it appears, we will know when Tax Freedom Day 2017 actually is.

In 2016, April 24 was Tax Freedom Day. This happy day came five days later than in 2015. That was the 108th day of the year. That is, we spent 29.6% of the year working to pay federal and state taxes. In primary school I learned that the essentials of life are food, clothing, and shelter.

I have been driven by new information to revise my original article on Putin and Russia, not so much on its basic thesis, but rather on Putin’s position. During my deep study and analysis on the subject, I have unearthed newer information and will need some time to digest it all. I look forward to the second part of Dr. Faria’s article on this issue. This is a very difficult subject and things are not always what they seem on a first look—as most of us well know. This is like an onion—one must peel back many layers before one finds the truth. The outer layers are stained with propaganda, lies, and carefully crafted deceptions. Only the inner layers, those not seen by the average superficial thinker and observer, come closer to the truth.

First, for the outer layer of the onion. It appears on the surface that President Donald Trump has fallen into the Power Elite's trap by attacking Syria and Bashar al-Assad. On first look, it is obvious that Assad had...
