    "...1.0 out of 5 starsUnbelievable turn of events.......... By Daniel B. on September 14, 2016 Format: Paperback I was going to read this book.....I really was. 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

    Washington Examiner ^ | September 14, 2016 | Ashe Schow
    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...

  • The Victory of Reason: How Christianity Led to Freedom, Capitalism and Western Success

    07/25/2016 10:51:24 AM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 48 replies
    Many books have been written about the success of the West, analyzing why Europe was able to pull ahead of the rest of the world by the end of the Middle Ages. The most common explanations cite the West's superior geography, commerce, and technology. Completely overlooked is the fact that faith in reason, rooted in Christianity's commitment to rational theology, made all these developments possible. Simply put, the conventional wisdom that Western success depended upon overcoming religious barriers to progress is utter nonsense. In The Victory of Reason, Rodney Stark advances a revolutionary, controversial, and long overdue idea: that Christianity...

    Unearthed: the humble origins of world diplomacy By David Keys, Archaeology Correspondent 19 January 2003 Archaeologists have discovered evidence of an invasion of the Middle East by one of the world's first superpowers, which destroyed much of the region 33 centuries ago. Under the ruins of a 3,800-year-old royal palace in western Syria they have found part of an ancient diplomatic and administrative library, the most important archaeological discovery of its kind for more than 20 years. Accounts on clay tablets describe the region's conquest by one of the Bronze Age's superpowers, the Hittite Empire, in 1340BC. This helped to...

The book says what it says, and itís out there for people to read. If you now want to say something different, how do you deal with the fact that your own book is floating around contradicting you? But Hillary Clinton has to change her story because thatís what she does, so the fact that she wrote a book in 2014 bragging about getting other nations to...

    War is Boring ^ | February 14, 2016 | S.K. Au-Yeong
    The public mostly remembers the North American P-51 Mustang as the fighter plane that protected Allied bombers over Germany and Japan during World War II. Overshadowed by newer jet fighters by the time war broke out in Korea in 1950, the re-designated F-51’s relative technological backwardness became a qualified blessing for close air support and battlefield interdiction sorties against the Korean People’s Army. Warren Thompson’s new book F-51 Mustang Units of the Korean War focuses on the veteran fighter’s role in Korea, and also exposes the plane’s little-known history with Australia, South Africa and the Republic of Korea. North Korea’s...

    Peter Drucker wrote the first version of this book during Hitler's rise to power. Most explanations for the rise of fascism focused on political reasons or economic ones, while Drucker explains the social movements that made leaders like Mussolini and Hitler possible. It also explains what is (and isn't) fascism, how they hobble their own economies, and the social warpage they create. Peter Drucker updated "The End of Economic Man" in the 1960s, seeing horrifying parallels between the 1960s activism and the 1930s. And while history does not repeat, it rhymes - and this book explains the social trends that...

    A liberal who's been mugged, it's said, becomes a conservative. But what does a conservative become when he's mugged by a corrupt, politically driven justice system? Dinesh D’Souza's latest book, Stealing America: What My Experience with Criminal Gangs Taught Me About Obama, Hillary, and the Democratic Party answers that question. D'Souza now views the Progressive movement as a criminal enterprise designed to pull off the biggest heist in world history -- effective control of the enormous wealth created by America's entrepreneurs. This bounty, the author argues, was made possible by the country's embrace of a capitalist system that rewards industry...

    The new Dr. Seuss book "What Pet Should I Get?" is about two children who go to a pet store to buy a pet. That was a commonplace event back in the 1950s or early 1960s, when Dr. Seuss is believed to have written the long-lost book, but it's discouraged today. Which is why the new book comes with a remarkable addendum: A publisher's note urging children to walk on by the pet store and adopt from an animal shelter. But animal rights activist Ingrid Newkirk, the founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said it's not enough...

    There have been two times in our history in which Americans have been firsthand witnesses to the destruction of a republican government and its replacement with a fascist system. The first of these was in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s; the second we are seeing here and now. As you read Hitlerland, by journalist Andrew Nagorski, the parallels between the two sets of events can appear to be quite uncanny. Indeed, today's American Left, the progressives and the social justice warriors and the rest, bear an eerie resemblance to the Nazis who came to power out of the decaying...

    Is the devil real? Here is Msgr. Ronald Knox on that: ďIt is stupid of modern civilization to have given up believing in the devil, when he is the only explanation of it.Ē Monsignor Knox, eminent British convert, author, retreat master and translator of the Bible, may have been indulging in irony. But irony doesnít change the fact that the devil and his demonic associates exist. I came across the Knox quote in Manual for Spiritual Warfare, newly published by Tan Books and edited by Paul Thigpen. ďLike it or not,Ē Thigpen begins his thoughtful introduction, ďYou are at...
