Of course, Americans need to be wary of all of the “fake news” that is out there, but, more often than not, it is our own leaders, who lie us into new rights-robbing laws, entangling alliances, and even wars.

“I have in my possession a secret map, made in Germany by Hitler’s government—by the planners of the New World Order,” FDR told the nation in his Navy Day radio address of Oct. 27, 1941.
In Samuel Eliot Morison’s “The Oxford History of the American People,” there is a single sentence about Harriet Tubman.
