Also there's the debunking of the popular Easter = Ishtar myth:

"Bad History: For the Love of God, Easter does not come from Ishtar

Easter was originally a celebration of Ishtar

Except no it wasn't. If you want to trace the roots of Easter, you'll find in based on Jewish Passover (Pesach) the celebration of the holy spirit protecting the first born children of the Hebrews during the final plague in the book of Genesis' Exodus story."

Happy Passover!

"Liddy was outspoken and controversial, both as a political operative under Nixon and as a radio personality. Liddy recommended assassinating political enemies, bombing a left-leaning think tank and kidnapping war protesters. His White House colleagues ignored such suggestions.

One of his ventures " the break-in at Democratic headquarters at the Watergate building in June 1972 " was approved. The burglary went awry, which led to an investigation, a cover-up and Nixon's resignation in 1974.

Liddy also was convicted of conspiracy in the September 1971 burglary of defense analyst Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist, who leaked the secret history of the Vietnam War known as the Pentagon Papers.

On air, he offered tips on how to kill federal firearms agents, rode around with car tags saying "H20GATE" (Watergate) and scorned people who cooperated with prosecutors.

Born in Hoboken, N.J., George Gordon Battle Liddy was a frail boy who grew up in a neighborhood populated mostly by German Americans. From friends and a maid who was a German national, Liddy developed a curiosity about German leader Adolf Hitler and was inspired by listening to Hitler's radio speeches in the 1930s.

"If an entire nation could be changed, lifted out of weakness to extraordinary strength, so could one person," Liddy wrote in "Will," his autobiography."

Liddy became known for such offbeat suggestions as kidnapping war protest organizers and taking them to Mexico during the Republican National Convention; assassinating investigative journalist Jack Anderson; and firebombing the Brookings Institution, a left-leaning think tank in Washington where classified documents leaked by Ellsberg were being stored."
