Stowell claimed that Gull was a doctor and was treating the prince for syphilis. The disease supposedly caused the prince to go insane and commit the Whitechapel murders. The killings, which Stowell claimed were committed by the Prince, were to be in revenge for contracting syphilis during sexual activities. The murders started, according to Stowell, as Prince Albert’s infected brain started to deteriorate. None of this can be proven since Stowell died shortly after publishing his theories and burned his papers.
She claims that because he was discovered, he had to “kill” himself before the mafia killed him. To spur on the allegations, the FBI did not immediately swat down the theory, although there is no mention of Elvis helping the FBI in any of the 760 released files on Elvis from 1956 to 1980. Elvis was never officially investigated by the FBI, they say he only has a folder because of many extortion attempts made against him. In a FBI memo, though, it is recorded Elvis stating that he was willing to aid the FBI and offered his services in any way needed

According to History.com’s article on the Watergate Scandal, “The prowlers were connected to President Richard Nixon’s reelection campaign, and they had been caught wiretapping phones and stealing documents.” During his vain quest to cover-up the crime, Nixon took drastic steps to ensure the truth would never come to light including but not limited to providing ‘hush money’ for the burglars caught on June 17th, hatching a plan with his aides to instruct the CIA to impede the FBI’s investigation and the firing of officials who wouldn’t let him alone about handing over tapes from the Oval Office which held crucial
Jerry Mander in his book ”Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television” shows how television is creating addiction, giving as exemples a 3-year $5 million study done by NIH, that showed that television can be ”addictive and hypnotic”, and how political figures tried to stop such researches(”The President suppressed the study and commissioned another group to re-do it”). Mander also mentions about Marine Winn’s work, that talks about the effect called ”The Plug-In Drug” created by television, wich is wielding an addictive influence on the very young and it is causing dependency simply by showing ”ever-changing array of sights and sounds coming out of the machine” and ”wild variety of images meeting the eye”. As a result, the media is not just showing addictive programs but it also selects for us what to watch, and by creating dozens of programs they gives people the imprestion that they choose what they are watching, when in fact, the information it is easilty
Political Representation in The Crucible Arthur Miller, the author, wrote The Crucible in 1952 during the Red Scare, an investigation into Communist spies in the U.S. Government. A result of the Cold War with the Soviet Union, numerous citizens, including Miller, were interrogated for being accused of association with the Communist party by Senator Joseph McCarthy. The author used the Salem Witch Trials in his play to represent and criticize the search for Communist party members during the rise of McCarthyism. In The Crucible, Abigail Williams and the other “afflicted” girls compare to Joseph McCarthu and his actions in the 1950s.
Reverend Paris, the acting government in Salem, threatens Tituba, a slave from Barbados to “ confess” to witchcraft “or he will take her out and whip her to her death” (Miller 44). In the 1950s the House Committee on Un-American Activities blacklisted and threatened those accused of Communism to confess in the same way that the government of Salem threatened those accused of witchcraft. During both the 1692 Witch Trials and the 1950 McCarthy Trials the Government not only forced a confession, but imprisoned or killed those who refused to speak.
We also spoke about a Marxist theory that stated that government creates criminal laws to benefit the people who own the means of economic production. It reminded me of my previous post on the forum which spoke about private prison groups lobbying to create
On October 1, 2003, Dawna Cantrell was arrested and charged with the murder of her husband and two counts of tampering with evidence. Ms. Cantrell’s competency was questioned after evaluation by the defense expert, Dr. Eric Westfried. After subsequent evaluation by the state’s expert, Dr. Edward Siegel, both experts found that Ms. Cantrell had a “persecutory delusional disorder” and that her mental illness precluded her from assisting her attorney in her defense.

North also helped a Honduran general, José Bueso Rosa, receive a drastically reduced sentence after he was busted in 1984 by the FBI for a $40 million cocaine shipment. Rosa had been heavily involved with the Contras and he planned to use parts of the drug profits to assassinate the liberal Honduran President Roberto Suazo Córdoba. That plan was later described by the Justice Department as the “most significant case of narco-terrorism yet discovered.” On the other hand, Oliver North submitted the name of Jack Terrell, a military trainer of the Contras, to the FBI as a potential terrorist after Terrell informed investigators about the drug shipments at John Hull’s ranch. John Hull, an American who owned a ranch in northern Costa Rica near the Nicaraguan border, wasn’t some American expatriate pensioner.
The Tuskegee Syphilis Study had lots of controversy over the 1900´s. The study happened in a racist and poor time period between 1932 and 1972.
