President Truman and the biggest UFO landing cover-up
Did Harry S. Truman believe in aliens landing at Roswell and ordering a cover-up? Here’s what we do know. In July 1947, the U.S. military announced that an alien spacecraft had crashed in the New Mexico desert. One day later, they retracted the statement saying nothing of the sort happened. Why did the narrative swiftly change in a matter of 24 hours? There’s sparse information on what transpired – except that President Harry S. Truman’s reportedly visited the crash site. Many believe that Truman orchestrated the biggest UFO cover-up in U.S. history.
The missing Watergate tapes
President Richard M. Nixon ordered secret recordings of conversations that he wasn’t supposed to be privy to – a staggering 37000 hours. The tapes created an uproar in America’s political landscape, leading to the Watergate scandal and the subsequent downfall of the Nixon administration. On examining the tapes, investigators discovered that 18 minutes of a conversation between Nixon and Chief of Staff Bob Haldeman was only audio feedback. The “missing audio” was no error but was done with deliberate design. Multiple attempts to recover the deleted audio have been futile. Given the nature of the Watergate tapes overall, one can only imagine the magnitude and controversy in those missing 18 minutes of audio.
James Buchanan – the first gay President?
James Buchanan was a bachelor throughout his tenure as U.S. President – a first in the country’s history. His niece acted as First Lady, but it was common knowledge that his long-time “roommate” was a man. Was Buchanan the first gay President? The question remains. Some historians believe his sexuality wasn’t ever in question since it was an open secret then.
How did Warren G. Harding die?
It was a seemingly ordinary day in August 1923 in the Harding household. President Warren G. Harding sat listening to his wife, Florence reading him an article when he suddenly dropped dead. The cause of death was most likely heart failure since Harding wasn’t in the pink of health. But of course, there are other theories. Harding was a known philanderer whose doctors had warned him that his heart might be unable to handle all the excitement. Many people believe that Florence poisoned him. The theory seemed plausible since she refused to allow an autopsy.
Did Edith Wilson secretly run the country for four months?
President Woodrow Wilson suffered a stroke in October 1919 that was kept a secret from the American public for months.

Years after Woodrow’s death, the records indicate that Edith Wilson was most likely the first woman to run the country.
