  • "The Da Vinci Code" Author Dan Brown Gets Smacked Down by Physicist He Referenced in Novel

    The best-selling author of the purely fictional books The Da Vinci Code and Inferno is not known for letting facts get in the way of his stories. The problem isn't so much Dan Brown, though. It's the legions of readers who believe that the drivel he spills onto the paper is true. There are reasons why I used the qualifier "purely fictional": many people believe that the history and theology in Dan Brown's books are correct. They're not.Hopefully, the smackdown that physicist Jeremy England gave Dan Brown in a Wall Street Journal article titled "Dan Brown Can't Cite Me to Disprove God" will help people realize...
  • Sharyl Attkisson Pulls Back the Curtain

    Sharyl Attkisson’s The Smear gives insight to how news is made today. It goes a long way in convincing readers that they should believe only a small portion of what is released by the government and reported by the press. This leads to a very cynical view of the news and confirms Otto von Bismarck’s claim that "Nothing is proven until it is officially denied." Attkinsson gives an account of how massive the smear industry is. My only criticism of the book is her contention that, “the organized political smear entered the contemporary marketplace circe 1987.” Some of these smear...

    Dan Brown, the author of "The DaVinci Code," is back with another blockbuster anti-religion novel, and CBS "Sunday Morning" rolled out the red carpet on Oct. 1 to honor him and his massive commercial success. The segment began with what he called his "fortress of gratitude" -- his house loaded floor to ceiling, over several stories, with bookshelves ... stuffed with copies of Dan Brown's own books. So we know who Dan Brown worships. CBS correspondent Tony Dokoupil vaguely noted Brown has been attacked by "religious groups" for his "depictions of Christianity." Brown complained that the Vatican told Catholics to...
  • New Book Sheds Light on Anti-Trump Agenda in Public Schools and Politicization of the Classroom

    Safety, religious bias, sexualization of the classroom are factors bolstering school-choice argument! In his newly published book, The Corrupt Classroom, Lance Izumi of the Pacific Research Institute illustrates how the public school classroom has become increasingly politicized, with liberal teachers indoctrinating students with an anti-Trump and leftist agenda. Izumi makes the case that while many school choice supporters rely on academic school performance data to show that public schools are failing, there are many other equally important reasons to support it. "Many parents, for example, are rightly concerned about the growing politicization of the classroom," Izumi explains. "Far from being...

    Douglas Murray has written what is probably the most important book of the last 50 years. His extremely readable The Strange Death of Europe clarifies so many issues that are swirling around our lives. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the state of the Western world today. I had the distinct pleasure of spending a couple of hours with Murray while he was on a recent trip to Los Angeles. It was hard to focus the conversation because there are so many immense concepts conveyed by Murray in the book even though it is just 320...

    Hillary Clinton let Bill de Blasio down during the 2016 election, the mayor says in a new book. In a post-election interview in the book, de Blasio tells author Joseph Viteritti that had Clinton listened to him and other progressives, she could have won. In one remark, he zings both Hillary and Bill Clinton. “Although I opposed the DLC [pro-Bill Clinton] (Democratic Leadership Council) and its centrist politics, I had real hope for Hillary,” de Blasio says in Viteritti’s “The Pragmatist: Bill de Blasio’s Quest to Save the Soul of New York.” “I thought she would eventually take a stronger position...

    The corruption of American higher education has been in the news a lot in the last few years. “Snowflakes” and “safe spaces,” crowds of thugs shutting down conservative speakers, craven administrators caving in to demands of activist students and faculty have become increasingly common since the rise of Donald Trump sparked a “resistance” movement. Even progressives who have run afoul of campus Robespierres are writing books about free speech now that their revolutionary children have started devouring their own. What David Horowitz has been warning about in his books and speeches for more than thirty years -- the ideological hijacking...

    The Bible is more than clear in its theological claim that Jesus Christ will return to Earth at an undisclosed, future time. In fact, that belief is a central hallmark of the Christian faith. And the latter point about the timing is essential to highlight, as scripture makes it clear that no one knows exactly when the so-called “second coming” will unfold. Yet, once again, here we are with some Christians setting a specific date — September 23, 2017 — for the purported fulfillment of certain prophetic signs or events. It seems bizarre, considering that the Bible repeatedly and clearly...

    Oh, how nice, leave it to the intellectuals to once again, make lemons out of lemonade — freedom out of Communism. MIT Press, that supposed bastion of scientific thought, the place where the brainiacs flock and fly — meaning, this wasn’t an “oops, my bad” moment — has just put out a new book aimed at the kiddie market. It’s called “Communism for Kids.” And it’s hitting the “best-seller” Amazon lists for the “communism and socialism” section — yes, that’s truly a section. But what’s the sequel, you think — “Dictatorships for Dummies?” Anyhow, the Amazon description reads thusly: “Once...

    According to excerpts that have surfaced online, Clinton accused Sanders of resorting to “innuendo and impugning my character” during the contentious primary because the Democratic socialist “couldn’t make” a policy argument against her. “Nonetheless, his attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign,” Clinton wrote. Clinton’s book -- "What Happened” – isn’t set for release until Sept. 12. But several supporters who obtained the book have published early purported excerpts on social media. In the book, the former Democratic presidential nominee compared Sanders to the...

    (CNN) — Hillary Clinton casts Bernie Sanders as an unrealistic over-promiser in her new book, according to excerpts posted by a group of Clinton supporters. She said that his attacks against her during the primary caused "lasting damage" and paved the way for "(Donald) Trump's 'Crooked Hillary' campaign." Clinton, in a book that will be released September 12 entitled "What Happened," said Sanders "had to resort to innuendo and impugning my character" because the two Democrats "agreed on so much." The excerpts represent a small number of the roughly 500-page book in which Clinton reflects on her stunning loss to...

    One of our very own FReepers wrote a book called, "The Red Cliffs of Zerhoun", which was released last month. I ordered it and read it and hope you'll bear with me as I offer my review of the book. First, I do not know Matthew outside of Free Republic and I'm getting nothing for doing this review. The story takes place at some point in the future. Maybe a decade from now, maybe twenty years from now. The world has faced a crisis in which fiat currencies like the dollar and the Euro have fallen and trade is done...

    In the first excerpts from Hillary Clinton's highly anticipated upcoming memoir, the former Democratic presidential candidate said her "skin crawled" during a debate with Donald Trump. In audio clips of Clinton reading from the book, "What Happened," which were first obtained by MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Wednesday, Clinton recounted her thoughts as she toyed with the idea of telling her Republican rival to "back up, you creep" as he stood behind her during the second presidential debate. "My skin crawled," Clinton said. "It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching 'well,...

    Democrats are on edge over Hillary Clinton’s forthcoming book that is likely to dredge up the controversies surrounding her 2016 defeat to President Trump, just as the out-of-power party is trying to "move on" and chart a course back to the majority. The former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady who added Democratic presidential nominee to her resume last year apparently isn’t done with public life. She plans to release her book, “What Happened,” next month. But Bloomberg reports that Democrats are privately concerned that Clinton’s book will help Trump, by fueling his case that Democrats are going...

    Editor's note: This following is an excerpt from "The Big Lie," Dinesh D'Souza's latest book, released today.Racism and xenophobia: this is the hot-button charge. Every comparison between Trump and the Nazis goes here. Elizabeth Warren explains Trump’s rise as the product of “an ugly stew of racism.” Historian James Whitman warns that “white nationalism lives in the White House.” Jeet Heer charges in the New Republic that Trump’s “racism and xenophobia” display his “fascist roots” that are not his alone but “lie in the Republican Party.” Along the same lines, leftist writer Michael Tomasky traces a “direct and indisputable”...

    Hillary Clinton calling new book 'What Happened' Updated: July 27, 2017 — 9:13 AM EDT NEW YORK (AP) - Hillary Clinton is calling her new book "What Happened" and promising unprecedented candor as she remembers her stunning defeat last year to Donald Trump. "In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I've often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net," Clinton writes in the introduction, according to publisher Simon & Schuster. "Now I'm letting my guard down." Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Thursday that Clinton's...
