The Illuminati Strikes Again: April 19th and 20th Are Fraught
By Staff Report
April 20th is indeed a cursed date in history. Everyone and their dog knows about the two most cited events of this date is history: 1) Adolf Hitler was born in 1889, becoming the most famous advertisement for pulling out early ever, and 2) the Columbine High School massacre in 1999. But, certainly, there are other events that occurred on April 20th that prove it is the most cursed date in history. – Ghoulpool

1792 – France declares war on Austria, the beginning of French Revolutionary Wars (did the French really deserve to be free?)
1836 – U.S. Congress passes an act creating the Wisconsin Territory (besides cheese, what has Wisconsin ever given us? The Green Bay Packers? Please....)

Now, a close reading of the above will reveal that the author, to some extent, has his tongue firmly planted in his cheek. A further reading of his article reveals that this was the day US President Jimmy Carter was attacked by a "killer rabbit," thus rendering Carter, according to the author, "the biggest doofus in our country's presidential history."
A more sinister list has been compiled at the website of conspiracy theorist Jack Blood and can be seen at his website, deadlinelive.info. This one feature's TODAY'S events ...
