    During his time in the U.S. Senate, he has behaved as a garden-variety left-wing Democrat. He’s not funny. He’s not interesting According to Amazon, Sen. Al Franken (D-ACORN) has a book coming out on May 30. This purported book is called, Al Franken, Giant of the Senate. This is the blurb for it [emphasis in original]: From the #1 bestselling author – the story of an award-winning comedian who decided to run for office and then discovered why award-winning comedians tend not to do that. This is a book about an unlikely campaign that had an even more improbable ending:...

    (Washington Free Beacon) — MIT Press is out with a new book that teaches children the tenets of Karl Marx with fairy tales. Communism for Kids, written by a German author who specializes in political theory and “queer politics,” was released last month. The thesis of the children’s book is that communism is “not that hard,” but has not been implemented in the right way. {..snip..}

    NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Clinton has a lot of plans for 2017, including some reflections on her stunning loss last fall to Donald Trump. The former secretary of state, senator and first lady is working on a book of personal essays expected to come out Sept. 26, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book, still untitled, is structured around hundreds of favorite quotations that have inspired her. The publisher said Clinton will use the quotes to "tell stories from her life, up to and including her experiences in the 2016 presidential campaign" and into her...

  • A Smithsonian Gift Shop Sells Anti-Trump and Pro-Hillary Paper Dolls

    National Review ^ | 1/13/17 | Menachem Wecker
    There it is: a set of books in a Smithsonian shop criticizing the president. That this is a departure from tradition is suggested by the code of ethics set forth by the National Museum of American History (NMAH), which states that the museum must avoid “conduct that would compromise the integrity of or public confidence in the Smithsonian.” Moreover, since 1939, the Hatch Act has sought to “ensure that federal programs are administered in a nonpartisan fashion, to protect federal employees from political coercion in the workplace.” The paper-doll creator doesn’t appear to share that perspective. In a “2016 Year...

    The question isn't easy to answer in the current climate of marked instability. In past ages, Muslim conquerors were very brutal against Christian kingdoms, but conquered peoples of the book, Christians and Jews, were somewhat safer as long as they paid the jizya tax and accepted second class status.The question is, are Muslims more intolerant of secular people, who are typically out-of-control sexually, and except for fear, generally despise religious people.

    Over the course of five years and covering thousands of miles, I toured America to meet some of the millions of legal gun owners who, every day, proudly exercise their constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Excited by how limitless freedom can be when every man and woman is afforded their right to arm and protect themselves, I sought to produce a collection of photographs and words as unbiased and true to the diverse social fabric of American gun owners today. I strove to create a book that mirrors the exceptional beauty, pride and singularity of the greatest...

But just as I got started, I found myself under sniper fire, passed out, and fell and hit my head. After that I got double vision and had to wear glasses that were so damn thick I couldn't even see to read. Then I had an allergic reaction to something and started coughing so hard I spit out what looked like a couple of lizard's eyeballs, my limbs locked up, and I passed out...
  • Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine wrote a book, and almost no one wants to read it

    Did you know that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine wrote a book? Well, they did, and it's called Stronger Together. It sounds titillating: 256 pages chock full of Democratic policy proposals - what's not to love? Too bad for Clinton and Kaine, but it seems almost no one wants to read their book of dry policy proposals and life lessons. After a week on the shelves, the book has sold fewer than 3,000 copies. Generally, first-week sales account for about a third of total sales. No New York Times bestseller or Oprah's Book Club...

    Amy Schumer’s book, “The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo” — despite being No. 1 on the best-seller list for two weeks — is a disappointment, sources say. Although it sold 36,000 hardcover copies in its first week, Simon & Schuster paid $9 million for the funny memoir. “The publishers are hugely disappointed. They are going to lose a ton of money,” an industry insider told the New York Post.

    The Culture of Death has gained a strong foothold in America over the passivity of the dominant Christian population. It’s time to stand up and put an end to it. This book is a powerful weapon for the culture wars. “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants…” (Deut 30:19) This is a very simple guide for the Christian voter—don’t vote for the party and people who champion the Culture of...
