SECRET HISTORY: Originally, secret histories were designed as non-fictional, revealing or claiming to reveal the truth behind the “spin”: one such example is the Secret History of the Mongols. Secrethistories can range from standard historical revisionism with proper critical reexamination of historical facts to negative historical revisionism wherein facts are deliberately omitted, suppressed or distorted.

End Times Prophecy Report
1612 – The “Samlesbury witches“, three women from the Lancashire village of Samlesbury, England, are put on trial, accused of practicing witchcraft, one of the most famous witch trials in British history. 80 years later to the day, the scene would be repeated in Salem, Massachusetts.
1692 – Salem witch trials: in Salem, Province of Massachusetts Bay, five people, one woman and four men, including a clergyman, are executed after being convicted of witchcraft. According to Jonathan Eller’s 2011 book, Becoming Ray Bradbury, ( p. 202 ), science fiction writer Ray Bradbury is a direct descendent of Mary Bradbury, who was tried at Salem for witchcraft. Mary Bradbury was tried, convicted and sentenced to hang but the sentence was never carried out. Besides Ray Bradbury, Mary was the fourth great-grandmother of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Others in the Mary Bradbury family tree included Humphrey Bogart, Calvin Coolidge and Mary Aspinwall, Franklin Delano Roosevelt‘s paternal grandmother, as well as US president Millard Fillmore. It’s a small world among the rich, celebrated and occult-connected. In the years since the witchcraft trials, the press and and the authorities have labored long and hard to vindicate the convicted witches, portraying their accusers as suffering from “hysteria.’ Much space and time in popular entertainment has been devoted to exonerating the witches, while painting their neighbors as superstitious, malicious imbeciles. This redemption campaign to change history has largely succeeded.
1782 – American Revolutionary War: Battle of Blue Licks – the last major engagement of the war, almost ten months after the surrender of the British commander Charles Cornwallis following the Siege of Yorktown.
1909 – The first automobile race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway takes place. The race joins the other professional sport which serve as distractions for the American public over the next 100+ years.
1919 – Afghanistan gains full independence from the United Kingdom. Afghanistan would continue to be Middle East battleground for the next 100 years, with long periods of war and occupations interrupted by periods of calm. The Russians invade in 1979. After maintaining a strong covert presence in the country from the 1980s onward, the USA invades in 2001
2010 – Operation Iraqi Freedom ends, with the last of the United States brigade combat teams crossing the border to Kuwait. However, this only signals a lull in the combat as US forces return in 2014 for “humanitarian” reasons. In the meantime, US forces are replaced by mercenaries and other covert forces.
