    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...

    There's one called"How Trump Won" by a guy named Pollack-Breitbart writer. $8/used on Amazon. Then there's 'Shattered', written by a leftie who really dissed Hillary. Plenty of others. It was a historical election for the ages and I'd like to buy the best one for yearly reference/entertainment purposes.

    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...
  • Sharyl Attkisson and "Smear" at 9:00 PM and Midnight EDT on C-Span2

    C-Span2 | 2 July, 2017 | Intolerant in NJ
    Sharyl Attkisson will be the guest discussing her book "Smear" on C-Span2's "After Words" tonight at 9 and midnight EDT. Attkisson was a journalist for CBS who resigned a few years back because she felt her reporting was being micromanaged and shaped by management there. Her book looks at how journalists use false and misleading information to push their agendas instead of reporting the story. Attkisson does not define a "smear" as necessarily being untrue, but rather as being a story which is amplified beyond it's normal importance and having an underlying political or financial agenda which is not revealed...

    WASHINGTON – How did American college campuses get to the point where all of the ills of Western Civilization are blamed on white male students? Scott Greer, author of “No Campus for White Men,” recently told national talk-radio host Laura Ingraham the problem is widespread. “It doesn’t matter where you go,” he said. “You can be going to a conservative, red state public university or you could be going to Oberlin, and you’re going to be hearing this dogma repeated throughout, that all whites, no matter their background, beliefs, or when their ancestors came here, they’re all responsible for every...

    National Review ^ | July 15, 2017 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    Is there an enduring American character? For those who view our nation as at a tipping point, the question is urgent. Others scoff, “Why?” After all, if the American character is truly enduring, it will endure — the ship eventually will right itself to the extent it is off course. And if not, history will inevitably evolve it into something better, right? My friend Mark Levin would counter that this is the wrong way to look at it. The foundation of Americanism, he posits, is natural law. That does not just spontaneously appear, nor passively persevere. Understanding our natural-law roots,...

    Journalists today are elitists with their own agenda, never actually practicing journalism. Only a handful can be respected, trusted, and believed. Sharyl Attkisson falls into this category. She is an author and investigative reporter who hosts the syndicated TV news series Full Measure. Attkisson is a whistleblower of sorts in educating the public about the biased media. Her latest book, The Smear, reveals the tactics used to influence opinions in order to obscure the truth. In the beginning of this book, Attkisson discusses the propaganda campaign used by the OSS, the predecessor to the CIA. They had asked the legendary...

    Donna Brazile will celebrate the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump’s election with the publication of her book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House.”Brazile was chosen as interim Democratic National Committee chair after the Wikileaks release of internal party emails last year precipitated the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Brazile became a favorite target of Trump and his supporters after an email released in a separate hack appeared to show she slipped a question to Hillary Clinton ahead of one of the Democratic primary debates. Brazile’s publisher Hachette promises...
