5 Stars – Utterly brilliant insights and data, but publisher should have invested in graphics to match
Parag Khanna is for me the single best observer and reporter on the substance of Asia which he takes great pains to point out is not just China (a third of Asia’s population) but includes particularly vast swaths of Russia, India, Central Asia, Southeast Asia including Indonesia and Australia, and Turkey.
It is about “ancient accounts of chimeras and monsters”, and “genetic engineering technology” — including “the engineered creation of mankind itself”. Religions were promoted by these elite engineers “as tools of cohesion, conquest, and a considerable degree of obfuscation; as “commerce and contact between civilization and grew — often fostered by these very same elites —so to did religious agendas change, often violently, but just as often subtly.“
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.
From God’s lips to my ears. His Grace is both an Arab and a Christian whose life over several generations has been defined, on the one hand, by the love of God and on the other by the perfidy of the Zionists looting and destroying Palestine, and now including Jerusalem, a corpus separatum by any rational understanding.
6 Stars — Deep Dive into a Mind of a Murderous Pedophile — with Solutions for All of Us
Carine Hutsebaut, known as the “Clarise” of Europe, is a profiler who has worked with all major law enforcement organizations, and endured great pain because she was decades ahead of her time. Now she is the single most knowledgeable person I know of on the matter of murderous child pedophiles (she prefers the terms pedosexual and pedocriminal as there is no “love” in what is being done to children by these monsters). She is a fellow Commissioner on the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse, I have watched her in action, she is the “real deal.”
REVIEW: Caesar’s Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus
6 Stars –Destroys the Catholic Church in Compelling Detail
In brief, this book compares Wars of the Jew written by courtiers of Caesar, and The New Testament – by this author’s account also written by courtiers of Caesar. The explicit intent was to create an official religion that would put down the Jewish zealots rebelling against Caesar, and in the process, train the masses to turn the other cheek, render unto Caesar all that is Caesar’s, and love the enemy. If true, and I believe the author has made this case most compellingly, then the Roman Catholic Church is perhaps the most significant and successful psychological operation in modern history; the Pope and the Vatican are bastards in every possible respect; and the time has come to end the Vatican’s diplomatic immunity.
Niall Ferguson is neither Will Durant nor John Lewis Gaddis. He is far removed from Howard Zinn. He is, in effect, an intelligent idiot, a courtesan historian. While the book’s intent may remind one of Eric S. Raymond’s classic essay on “The Cathedral or the Bazaar,” or the book by Thomas L. Friedman, The Lexus and the Olive Tree: Understanding Globalization, the author – while spectacularly qualified in conventional, which is to say, “approved thinking,” – offers so many false notes in this book in relation to what I know to be true, that I consider this book largely worthless.
