Stonemason and historical detective, Jim Vieira, discussed the ceremonial stone structures of North America as well as how the archaeological evidence for giants in America has been covered up." There are structures of earth and stone, thousands of years old, in every part of the United States," Vieira marveled. While he has found over 10,000 stone mounds around Massachusetts alone, he lamented that many great works were dismantled during colonial times as settlers used the materials for their roads and bridges. For instance, Vieira cited an archaeologist's report of a 55-foot high stone pyramid in Illinois that had been plundered by colonists, who removed "tens of thousands of cartloads of stone."
Regarding giants in America, Vieira explained that, while searching through old town histories in Massachusetts for information on stone structures, he stumbled upon remarkable accounts of anomalous human skeletons being discovered. According to the reports from the time, the skeletons ranged from 7 to 11 feet tall and had skulls which sported double rows of teeth. "There are thousands of these accounts," Vieira said, "by doctors, scientists, anthropologists, archaeologists, farmers and over decades and decades of time all around the country." These skeletons, he added, were often found within the mysterious stone mounds and, sometimes, were sometimes buried amongst great treasures.
Vieira attributed the suppression of information on the ancient American giants to the Smithsonian Institute, specifically their first director of anthropology Ales Hrdlicka. Described by Vieira as a "pre-Nazi eugenicist," Hrdlicka allegedly censored reports of giants and marginalized them from the historic record in order to depict Native Americans as "unsophisticated and uninspiring." Additionally, Vieira reported that there are many accounts of Smithsonian representatives traveling around the country to where these anomalous remains were discovered and "taking the giant skeletons away, never to be seen again." Ultimately, he contended that the cover up continues to this day and claimed that a video presentation on his findings was pulled from the Internet because it threatened the scientific orthodoxy.
2012: The Best Year Ever?
In the first hour, investigative reporter Greg Hunter responded to the British Spectator article calling 2012 the "best year ever." He rejected the article's stance that "the forces of peace, progress and prosperity are prevailing" by declaring that the true winners are "the forces of crime, bailout, and fraud." He credited global quantitative easing for creating the illusion of an economic recovery, noted that the US dollar is being shunned as the world's reserve currency, and added that 1 in 6 Americans are now on food stamps. Looking ahead to 2013, Hunter warned that war with Iran appears imminent which could be a "disaster of world economic proportions."
Behold the Fish 'Tornado'
Marine biologist Octavio Aburto's three year quest to document the remarkable mating patterns of Jack fish has culminated in a breathtaking series of photos. Despite skeptics who disbelieve the veracity or plausibility of the images, Aburto insists they are genuine and capture a rare, albeit natural, ritual for the thousands of fish. For some perspective on the sheer size of the fish 'tornado,' note how Aburto's friend David Castro, seen on the left hand side of the photograph, is dwarfed by the phenomenon. More on the story, including video, at the Daily Mail.
