Alabama Sightings: Gorilla or Bigfoot ?

There have been several Bigfoot reports in the past few years from residents near the Tallapoosa County area in Alabama. In 2012 we broke the news reports about the strange sightings in Hale County and followed the story closely. As with all stories regarding the wandering ape-like creature, this one also fizzled out without much more information. The 2012 Hale county sightings offered no real leads or information other than witnesses reporting a large gorilla ‘on the loose’. Fast forward two year, present day, and more Alabama strangeness is being reported. This time, Bigfoot researcher Jim Smith from the Alabama Bigfoot Society became a witness to what others have seen. “Big Joe’ was spotted twice within about a 4 week time,” said Smith, 58 and founder of the Alabama Bigfoot Society. According to the investigator, the first report was submitted by a woman who claimed to have been driving […] Read More

The two hunters, having been unsuccessful in the chase of that and the preceding day, found themselves on that night with nothing with which to satisfy the carvings of hunger except a black hawk which they had shot with an arrow. Sad reflections filled their hearts as they thought of their sad disappointments and of their suffering families at home. While the gloomy future spread over them its dark pall of despondency, all serving to render them unhappy indeed. They cooked the hawk and sat down to partake of their […] Read More

THE MEANING OF ART. 1, §9, CL. 7, AND ITS APPLICATION TO SOCIAL SECURITY

THE MEANING OF ART. 1, §9, CL. 7, AND ITS APPLICATION TO SOCIAL SECURITY “[T]hese documents revealed the Conspiracy to cover up the legislative intent regarding Social Security, in order to exploit the confusion long enough to fraudulently induce America into a pension contract to justify the tax…We at NITE are laboring to present an exciting and comprehensive legal strategy with this information uncovered by Mr. Fitzgerald [sic], to carry a two pronged assault, which incorporates and embraces this ground-breaking research into the most direct[,] on point[,] approach ever conceived within the tax resistance movement.” Thurston Bell, in a note dated July 25, 1999.
