How many democratic governments has the U.S. government overthrown?
—  Here is a list of 57 U.S. attempts to overthrow foreign governments just since 1949, thirty-six of them successful. Most of those governments had been put in place by election and were arguably as “democratic” as the United States if not more so. Without a doubt, in most cases, the governments overthrown were replaced by less democratic regimes. The author of that list, William Blum, notes in his book, America’s Deadliest Export, that just since World War II, the United States has also interfered in at least 30 foreign elections, attempted to assassinate over 50 foreign leaders, and dropped bombs on people in over 30 countries. On August 5, 2015, President Barack Obama bragged that he had himself ordered the bombing of seven countries. – David Swanson

Photo set of my Cia cosplay from Hyrule Warriors

Cia was one of my most challenging costumes up to date and because of that, obviously my favorite. Then again, due to not being able to sit, it’s also a costume I despise as well. Mixed feelings much? Yep.
I’m just very proud of myself to achieve this results and that it looks exactly like I wanted. I’m not really a sewing type of person (I don’t really like it xD) so that was the most challenging part of the whole costume. I’m more fond of just crafting stuff and building props :P

Other pictures of my Cia cosplay on my Facebook Page.

Enjoy this photo set~!

Take a peek into the CIA’s ‘X-Files’

The truth is out there: The CIA has released hundreds of declassified documents detailing investigations into possible alien life.

The Central Intelligence Agency posted documents of reported Unidentified Flying Objects that range in date from the late 1940s to the 1950s. While playing off the hype of the TV show reboot “The X-Files,” the CIA broke down the cases into two categories, whether you side with Agent Mulder or Agent Scully.

In case you haven’t seen my personal blog, I am a huge X-Files nerd. Even if you aren’t, there is something so fun and spooky about records of past UFO encounters that you might enjoy from this article.
