Oklahoma Bombing Conspiracy Heats Up

 McVeigh and Nichols Didn't Act Alone, Claims Attorney



In what is shaping up to be one of the largest cover-ups in history, a U.S. District Judge has given a Salt Lake City attorney a green light to proceed in his quest to prove that the FBI is either hiding, or has destroyed, surveillance video associated with the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing-- video which may prove that Timothy McVeigh wasn't alone when he parked a truckload of explosives at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups denied the government's motion to dismiss the case and ordered both sides to prepare for a bench trial. A status hearing has been scheduled for Nov. 21, at which time a trial date will be set.  At this hearing, Waddoups will decide whether the FBI adequately responded a Freedom of Information Act request for footage of Timothy McVeigh parking a Ryder truck at the Murrah Federal Building.  The request was filed by Jesse Trentadue, a Salt Lake City attorney who has spent the past five years trying to get hold of the surveillance video.

Trentadue began looking into the bombing after his brother died in a federal detention center in Oklahoma. He contends that federal agents mistook Kenneth Trentadue for a bombing suspect and beat him to death during an August 1995 interrogation. His official cause of death was listed as suicide.  Trentadue claims that the video will reveal a second bombing suspect who resembles, but is not, his brother.

Kenneth Trentadue


While the ruling was handed down last week, Trentadue's claims have caught the attention of several major news outlets recently such as Fox News, which showed official transcripts from the OKC bombing trial in which the FBI acknowledged that video footage shows a Ryder truck being driven by suspects (notice the plural).  The official narrative insists that McVeigh was alone when he parked the truckload of explosives, after plotting the attack with Terry Nichols and Michael and Lori Fortier.

In 1995, Timorth McVeigh claimed that Kenneth Trentadue was mistaken for Richard Lee Guthrie Jr., a suspected co-conspirator in the bombing who also died in federal custody.  Oddly, both Trentadue and Guthrie allegedly died from suicide by hanging, despite the fact that their bloodied bodies were covered with bruised.

In 2007, medical examiner Fred Jordan stated: I think it's very likely [Trentadue] was murdered. I'm not able to prove it....You see a body covered with blood, removed from the room as Mr. Trentadue was, soaked in blood, covered with bruises, and you try to gain access to the scene, and the government of the United States says no, you can't.... At that point we have no crime scene, so there are still questions about the death of Kenneth Trentadue that will never be answered because of the actions of the U.S. government. Whether those actions were intentional—whether they were incompetence, I don't know.... It was botched. Or, worse, it was planned.

Jenny Hanivers, Mermaids, Devil Fish, and Sea Monks

Three centuries before P.T. Barnum attracted flocks of crowds with his mummified Fiji Mermaid (which turned out to be a papier-mâché creation featuring a monkey's head and a fish's body), sailors around the world had already began manufacturing "mermaids".  Known as Jenny Hanivers, these creations were often sold to tourists and provided sailors with an additional source of income.  These mummified creatures were produced by drying, carving, and then varnishing the carcasses of fish belonging to the order rajiformes- a group of flattened cartilaginous fish related to the shark which includes stingrays and skates.  These preserved carcasses can be made to resemble mermaids, dragons, angels, demons, and other mythical creatures.


Jenny Hanivers became popular in the mid-16th century, when sailors around the Antwerp docks began selling the novelties to tourists.  This practice was so common  in the Belgian city that it may have influenced the name; it is widely believed …

The Roberto Clemente death conspiracy

Was the Hall of Fame baseball star assassinated by the CIA?



From the Sandy Hook school shooting to the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight 370, it seems that every tragedy in recent times is accompanied by a slew of conspiracy theories. Yet history is filled with events that would be enshrouded in conspiracy theories if they happened today. One such event is the plane crash that killed baseball Hall-of-Famer and Pittsburgh Pirates legend Roberto Clemente on December 31, 1972.

Most of us are familiar with the story: Clemente, playing the role of humanitarian, decides to accompany a flight of emergency aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua, after the victims claim that the corrupt military dictator, Anastasio Somoza, was preventing the much-needed emergency supplies from getting into the hands of earthquake survivors. The rickety plane goes down off the coast of  Isla Verde, Puerto Rico, immediately after takeoff. Strangely, Clemente's body is never found.

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his br…
