Taking Back Our Stolen History
HISTORY HEIST
1961

1961

A Jewish defector, Benjamin Freedman, warned America about the Pagan conspiracy to take over the world; the CIA-directed murder of Patrice Lumumba, the first elected Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of Congo who sought independence from Belgium; President Eisenhower warns of the military-industrial complex; John F. Kennedy is inaugurated as President declaring, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country!”; FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover, gave this testimony on 6 March 1961 before the House Committee on Appropriations regarding the communist conspiracy: “They have infiltrated every conceivable sphere of activity: youth groups; radio, T.V. and motion picture industries; church, school, educational and cultural groups; the press; nationality minority groups and civil and political units.” Russia claims Yuri Gagarin was the first man in space; Student activists from the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) launched the Freedom Rides to challenge segregation on interstate buses and bus terminals; the failed Bay of Pigs invasion; JFK’s “Man on the Moon”speech; athiests gain right to hold government office; and the CIA proposed killing Americans or Cuban refugees to blame Castro and provoke an invasion.

As MAD Magazine pointed out on its cover for the March 1961 issue, this was the first “upside-up” year — i.e., one in which the numerals that form the year look the same as when the numerals are rotated upside down, a strobogrammatic number — since 1881. The next such year will be 6009.

Operation Mongoose: A CIA Proposal, Approved by the Pentagon, to Kill Innocent Americans or Cuban Refugees and Blame it on Castro to Provoke an Invasion

Failure at the Bay of Pigs did not deter the Kennedy administration from seeking ways to topple Castro. In November 1961 Operation Mongoose was created to coordinate these efforts. This was not a strictly CIA operation - General Edward Lansdale was tasked with coordinating activities between the CIA, Defense Department, and State Department. The Special Group Augmented (augmented by the President's brother Robert Kennedy and General ...

President Kennedy Issues Document 7277 Entitled ‘Freedom From War: The US Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World’

In the interest of peace, many Americans have been persuaded to support disarmament programs and to create as a substitute for each nation's military a United Nations Peace Force.

The Bay of Pigs Invasion: A Failed Attempt to Invade Cuba by the CIA. Did JFK Lose His Nerve or Did the CIA Sabotage the Mission to Force JFK Into a Full Invasion of Cuba?

The failure of the invasion of Cuba in April, 1961 by 1500 CIA-trained anti-Castro expatriates is generally attributed to President Kennedy's loss of nerve at the critical moment, when he cancelled the air strikes which were supposed to incapacitate Castro's air force.  As a result, more than a hundred men were killed, the rest surrendered, and the Cuban exiles in America never forgave Kennedy for this ...

Russian Hoax: Was Yuri Gagarin the First Man in Space or was it a Provable Fraud?

Soviet Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was ‘officially’ the first man into space. But did Gagarin really go into space?
