6 Stars — Long-Repressed Truths That Support the Termination of the State of Israel and Restoration of Palestine to the Palestinians.

Review by Robert David Steele

This book consists of 93 pages of text and 108 pages containing 373 endnotes, plus an additional 24 pages of bibliography.

It is a rigorously documented indictment of President Harry Truman as a traitor who was bribed and pressured by the Zionists to assure the creation of the state of Israel against the best interests of the USA and against the informed advice of every single major US authority across the diplomatic, military, commercial, and political fronts.

SUMMARY REVIEW

5 Star – Truly Superb Structured Overview, Most Ably Illustrated with Photos and Charts, Essential Pre-Reading Before Renting or Buying

Review by Robert David Steele

I have read this book twice and made note of a number of critical considerations to keep firmly in mind if chartering or buying.

This is a large size book (11″ x 9″) and superbly laid out.  The paper while glossy lends itself to pen annotation and I have the book heavily annotated.

Seven Stars Life Transformational — Sickening Detailed Account of Trillion Dollar Crimes by Bankers Ignored While Black and Latino Workers are Beaten Daily for Profit at the Bottom of the Injustice Pyramid

Review by Robert David Steele

I read this book on my way to and from Dimensions of Disclosure where I delivered a speech on “If I Were President” and I have to say, if I were President, Matt Taibbi would be one of the people I would truth to tell me the truth about injustice across America at the hands of the “law.” Death by cop is now the 6th leading cause of death among young men in America.

5 Stars – Three Books in One — 9/11 Disclosure; Zionist Threat in Detail; and Role of Satanic Pedophilia as a Control Element

I cannot do this book justice in the way of a summary review as I did his most recent other book but as someone who has also published on 9/11 and taken a strong interest in the Zionist threat to the USA specifically and the world generally, I can certainly recommend this book most strongly after having gone through every page but not read every word.

At one level this is the most detailed book I have found that covers not just 9/11, but a variety of false flag operations and false narratives including the Oklahoma bombing and Waco. The criminality by the FBI and the Department of Justice that is detailed in this book could be used to bring indictments against a hundred or more serving or retired officers.

Obama’s Unending Wars – Fronting the Foreign Policy of the Permanent Warfare State

A Book Review

In his conclusion Kuzmarov writes,

Though packaging himself as a peace candidate, Obama ultimately proved indispensable to the military-industrial complex in his ability to sustain the illusion of humanitarian intervention and defuse anti-war activism.”

Kuzmarov’s thematic idea is well presented and well supported.  His writing is easy to follow and each section has a clear, well written summary highlighting the ongoing message of Obama’s complicity with the warfare state.

Robert Steele @Amazon: Summary Review with Links: Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice by Sydney Powell (Trump Revolution Book 41)

6 Star Top 10%, Justice (Failure, Reform)

For those that love Kindle….

Steele, Robert, Summary Review with Links: Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice by Sydney Powell (Trump Revolution Book 41), Amazon Kindle, Earth Intelligence Network, 3 August 2019.

When this book was first published in 2014 the country was not ready to “hear” what this former prosecutor had to say.

Now, in the aftermath of the collapse of the Russian election interference fabrication by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the clear evidence of treason by then President Barack Obama running through the Department of Justice (DoJ) and across the so-called leadership ranks of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the public is ready to contemplate the reality that across the USA, there are judges and prosecutors who are so corrupt, so venal, so protected from being held accountable, that they will literally lie in every possible way to put people in jail, to sentence people to death, on the basis of both false evidence, and abuse of judicial and prosecutorial discretion.

The author has produced gifted compelling writing that at one point brought me to tears of compassion, at other points tears of outrage.
