A further conspiracy suggests that J. Morgan, the plutocrat financier who set up the investment bank that still bears his name, arranged to have the men board the ship and then sink it. Morgan did have a hand in the creation of the Federal Reserve , and it owned the International Mercantile Marine, which owned the White Star Line, which owned the Titanic.
Even Conspiracy Theories Have Gotten Dumber, a New Book Shows
That's pretty much where the evidence ends. There's very little information online to suggest that the three men who died were even opponents of the Federal Reserve. Any search for "Federal Reserve" along with any of their names becomes so bogged down in conspiracy websites that it's difficult to find any reputable sources of information.

A brief stint as a seventh-grade secret agent spiced things up, but even coming up with an interesting prank is hard to do after you've saved the world. Be careful what you wish for: Carson learns one of his mentors at the super secret Agency is in mortal danger. He wants to help, but to save Agent Nineteen and the world, again , he must betray his friends' trust and face extraordinary peril -- not the least of which involves scaling Mount Rushmore and breaking into a top-secret government facility.
Beneath the goofiness, there's a real sense of danger.
The Digital Public Square
Carson is neither a smooth James Bond nor a blundering Maxwell Smart : He's smart, but his greatest strengths are resolve and resourcefulness. Some drawn-out action sequences drag a bit and may test readers' patience, but short chapters make it easily digestible for those challenged by long books. Why are these so popular? Have you ever had to do something you worried would leave your friends feeling betrayed? If you could lead a double life, would you rather be a secret agent or a superhero -- or maybe a supervillain?
