James D. Bulloch: Secret Agent and MasterMind
of the Confederate Navy
By Walter E. Wilson, Gary L. McKay
This is the first biography of the Confederacy's "most dangerous man" who was their secret agent in Europe during the American Civil War. He was a creative and honorable man who inspired his favorite nephew, Theodore Roosevelt, to learn and write about the Navy and move the USA to a prominent place on the world stage. It should be of interest to anyone interested in the American Civil War, history, intelligence operations, naval power, Theodore Roosevelt, the Lincoln assassination, or international relations.
It is carefully documented, with new relevations about Bulloch, his warships, blockade runners, intelligence operations, and his Roosevel relatives on practically every page. The authors use their personal experience in the shadowy world of intelligence to illuminate the nuances of a secret agent who always told the truth, but not the whole truth. A fun read. ~ This review is by, Texas Walt
By Curtis Patranella
Too often we all fall into the trap of taking hearsay as gospel, gossip as truth, and misinformation as fact; not because we are stupid or lazy, but because we either wish to trust those who are delivering the information; the messenger is cloaked in authority; or perhaps the truth is too frightening to face. The reality is, most of what you learned about freedom, the Constitution, your rights, government, etc. is a lie. You have been raised on falsehoods, smoke and mirrors. "Understanding Liberty" seeks to blow away the smoke, lift the veil, and act as a guide to explain to anyone, of any background, and any level of political experience, exactly what true liberty means. It is time to wake up, take charge of your rights as a Human Being, and break the chains of those who seek to enslave you. "Understanding Liberty" is the first step on that journey.
The Path to Tyranny: A History of Free Society's Descent into Tyranny
By Michael E Newton
List Price: $18.95
Western civilization is risking the return of tyranny by increasing the size and scope of government. Throughout history, free societies descended into tyranny when their populations realized they can use the power of government to give themselves benefits at the expense of others. The Path To Tyranny examines how and why each of these free societies descended into tyranny and evaluates the current prospects for the United States.
Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America
By Mark R. Levin
List Price: $26.99
AN INTELLECTUALLY BRACING NEW VOLUME ON AMERICA’S TRANSFORMATION AND THE CLASH BETWEEN CONSTITUTIONALISM AND UTOPIANISM—FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIBERTY & TYRANNY , MARK R. LEVIN
Hailed by Rush Limbaugh as “the most compelling defense of freedom for our time,” and “the necessary book of the Obama era” by The American Spectator, Mark R. Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny made the most persuasive case for conservatism and against statism in a generation. In this most crucial time, this leading conservative thinker explores the psychology, motivations, and history of the utopian movement, its architects, and its modern-day disciples—and how the individual and American society are being devoured by it.
Levin asks, what is this utopian force that both allures a free people and destroys them?
