Publisher's Write-Up

Russ Kick has proved himself a master at uncovering facts that "they" would prefer you never hear about. The giant Disinformation Guide series edited by Kick has become the definitive place to find revelations about government cover-ups, scientific scams, corporate crimes, medical malfeasance, historical whitewashes, media manipulation, and other knock-your-socks-off secrets and lies. This CD-sized book packs the same powerful punch in a small, attractive package. Among Kick’s amazing discoveries, all thoroughly documented:

  • The first genetically modified humans have already been born.
  • Hitler’s blood relatives are living in the U.S.
  • The CIA commits over 100,000 serious crimes per year.
  • The U.S. planned to explode an atomic bomb on the moon.
  • An atomic bomb was dropped on North Carolina.
  • The main hero of the movie Black Hawk Down is a convicted child molester.
  • The discoverer of HIV no longer believes the virus is the sole cause of AIDS.
  • Kent State wasn’t the only massacre of U.S. college students during the Vietnam era.
  • Lincoln didn’t free any slaves.

A uniquely valuable tool to debunk modern mythology and the people and institutions serving it up, 50 Things You’re Not Supposed To Know makes an amazing gift item and will prove just as essential in fashionable bathrooms as on the most well-heeled coffee tables.

Are you being kept in the dark about the world around you? Do you feel that there are things the government and media won't tell you, but you can't quite put it into words? This is the book for you.
Written in bite-size chunks, this book presents a number of things not told to the public. What the world knows as the Ten Commandments are not what Moses brought down from Mt. Sinai on those stone tablets (read Exodus Chapters 20 and 34). The police are not legally obligated to protect citizens. The government can take your house and land, and then sell them to private corporations. According to the auto industry, 90% of SUV drivers are insecure and selfish. Almost 90% of American cows contain a cancer-causing microbe called bovine leukaemia virus. In America, prescription drugs, even when used properly, kill over 100,000 people per year, making it the fourth leading cause of death. The CIA commits over 100,000 serious crimes yearly.

The US Government vastly overstates the number of terrorism convictions it obtains each year. In 1961, two atomic bombs were accidentally dropped on North Carolina when their plane disintegrated in midair. One of the bombs was found; the other is still missing.

The government's own reports show that both bombs had 4 separate arming devices; 3 of them had been activated. Kent State was not the only, let alone the first, massacre of college students during the Vietnam War. The tattoo at Auschwitz was originally an IBM code number. Many of the first feminists, like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, were pro-life. Juries are allowed to judge the law, not just the facts. According to the Supreme Court, it's legal for a person to ingest any drug, especially if they are an addict. Last but not least, what were you doing on January 25, 1995? On that day, the world came within minutes of World War III.

This small, but mighty, book easily reaches the level of Wow. There are references in the back of the book so the reader can do their own investigating. It's easy to read and very eye opening.

On several different levels, this book is very highly recommended.
