6 Star – Skin in the Game = Ethics = Sustainable

By the author Black Swan and Anti-Fragility, among many other works, this book is a simplified overview — a capstone work — and the easiest to read.

Skin in the Game is defined by the author as symmetry of risk and reward — in other words, you don’t get to externalize losses to others while reaping the rewards without any personal risk.

That pretty much sums up everything that is wrong with banking, commerce, government, religions, and universities.

5 Star Insights Into How and Why Trump Won — Complements Our Towns

The authors combine experience as a national political analyst for reputable media organizations with national-scope Republican advertising and opinion research. The book offers deep insights into how and why Donald Trump captured so many “Reagan Democrats” at the same time that he attracted many eligible non-voters back into the election process.

Review: The Trident – The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader

Jason Redman with John R. Bruning, Foreword by Robert M. Gates

5 Stars Authentic, Humble, Healing, NOT Your “Normal” Leadership Story

This book brought tears to my eyes by page 71.  This is not your “normal” leadership story. It blends three leadership stories from one personal experience: a personal failure of leadership stemming from the mix of arrogance and alcohol; a positive enabling leadership environment (not at all the norm for the Department of Defense) that helped this warrior grow; and finally, the personal triumph of being one with God, country, team, and family after being broken by wounds that would have killed most others.

5 Stars Compelling Overview of Government-Approved Child Abuse

I am a Commissioner on the treaty-mandated Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse.  I was not able to get the Commission to drop the Sex word because it is too limiting. Child abuse includes not only kidnapping and slavery and sex as well as physical abuse, but also torture, ritual murder, casual murder, and the harvesting of child blood, bone marrow, and body parts. This is the first book I have found that does three things:

5.0 out of 5 starsTruth as Fiction — an Indictment of the Obama Administration as Trump Prepares to Take Down the Deep State

I read this book in galley form after Steven asked me to when we shot a documentary together in Thailand in May 2017, and it was my great privilege to not only be able to work with him directly, but also with best-selling author and US Marshall Tom Morrissey, of Arizona, offering a few thoughts from my time as a clandestine case officer (spy) working the Latin American terrorist – cartel target and my time in Washington working the inter-agency enemies of the Constitution target.

Amazon Kindle: Zion in Shiksa-Land: Harvey Weinstein – First Major Jewish Pedophile Domino in the USA (Trump Revolution Book 16)

America (Founders, Current Situation)
Amazon Kindle

From Benjamin Fulford to Tim Luongo to Charles Huge Smith, it is clear that Harvey Weinstein is not just “shlonged,” to use Donald Trump’s verbing of a noun, but he is taking the entire Zionist encampment in America down with him. Harry Weinstein, not Sheldon Adelson or George Soros or Michael Chertoff or Jeffrey Epstein, is the schlemiel who is ending the Zionist occupation of America and in so doing, also imploding the Deep State (the Khazarian Mafia as well as the Zionists and their Jesuit fellow travelers). All we shiksas owe him a debt of eternal gratitude. Kosher he was – is – not … (that is a nuanced observation at many levels).

Harvey Weinstein is the first Jewish pedophile domino to fall. His public outing represents the beginning of the end for the Deep State and the Zionists that are such a large part of the Deep State in the USA.

Amazon Kindle War for the 1% or Peace for the 99%?: Are the Deep State & Zionism Done For? (Trump Revolution Book 15)

America (Founders, Current Situation), Peace, Poverty, & Middle Class
Amazon Kindle

This is a collection of very recent articles about war and peace rooted in the battle between Donald Trump and the Deep State, as published in the American Herald Tribune. 43 pages in length it offers four articles by the author and two interviews of the author with seven pages of endnotes, each endnote linked to a source.

The good news up front: our legitimately-elected President Donald Trump appears to have formed a strategic understanding with President Vladimir Putin of Russia and General Secretary Xi Jinping to the point that a summit with North Korea will take that potential war off the table, at the same time that there will be a radical shift in the Middle East that puts Israel back in its box, stops subsidizing the Saudis, and pays due respect to Turkey and Iran (respectively, the inheritors of the Ottoman and Persian Empires). We are looking at a Global Re-Set.

Best New Book for Those Who Love America

I received a PDF copy from the author, with whom I share many concerns about and hopes for the Trump Presidency, and am truly delighted with all that he has done. As a former spy who also co-created the Marine Corps Intelligence Intelligence Activity and went on to found the Open Source Intelligence discipline, I deal every day with complex nuanced topics that I find very difficult to explain to normal people.

This author has done a BRILLIANT job, a PATRIOTIC job, a LIFE-ENHANCING and GOD-BLESSED job, of laying out both the threats to the Trump Presidency and to America, and the threats and possibilities for resurrecting America and saving it from the Deep State I know so well.

SIX STARS The single most dangerous book in America today

At the age of 65, with a lifetime of both experience across the secret world including nine years as a clandestine case officer (spy) for the Central Intelligence Agency, and a lifetime of education and reading including 2,500 reviews across 98 categories at Amazon (making me the top Amazon reviewer for non-fiction), I have never been more shocked, more disgusted, more outraged, than by this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Extraordinary — Color Jumps Off Page and Grabs You By the Throat — an Eye Opener in Every Way,

I received a copy of the color version from the author and totally recommend the color version over the black and white version. Amazon has really got the color production line perfected, and color in this book adds a third dimension that is missing from the less expensive but much blander black and white version. I cannot over-state this: the color as planned by the author and executed by Amazon jumps off the page and grabs you by the throat. This is a phenomenal multi-dimensional book, a deep study in cultural linquistics and symbology, and I suspect it will become a classroom and presidential campaign planning staple.
