Hidden History: What Your High School History Teacher Didn't Want You To Know (Part One)
|Socrates: "The sober |
life is not worth living"
The colonists did not win the American Revolutionary War. Their victory was simply a myth propagated by the King of England to trick the colonists into believing they governed themselves. To this day, the British monarchy secretly controls the United States and still collects Stamp Act revenues from all Americans, although the tax has been renamed “FICA.”
George Washington was not the first President of the United States. Actually, he was the third president. The first two have been erased from history. The first president was John Smithington, a Virginian who served three weeks as president before being impeached and removed from office when it was discovered that he had attempted to sell the United States to the King of Spain for $2,000. The second president was Edmund Shrevelprunt from South Carolina, who, after serving two weeks in office, was assassinated during a lavish ceremony in which he married three of his first cousins and declared himself King of America.
The term “jaywalking” was coined in reference to John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Jay was notorious for his habit of crossing the street without looking to see if anything was coming. He eventually died after being trampled and crushed by a horse-drawn carriage, and jaywalking was made a minor criminal offense.
Napoleon Bonaparte was not short. He was actually well over six feet tall. The notion of his diminutive stature was a myth propagated by the crowned heads of Europe, who were attempting to lessen the memory of Napoleon’s martial prowess as part of an effort to discredit meritocracy and protect hereditary monarchy.

Madison's propaganda machine
The War of 1812 never happened. In 1814, President James Madison fell asleep while smoking a cigar and the White House caught fire and burned. To cover up for his mistake, Madison announced to the people that the United States had been at war with Britain for the past two years and that British troops had caused the fire.
