5 stars – Bottom Line: Kushner Sabotaged Trump’s First Two Years

I put this book down feeling that I had learned a great deal about how to get ready to be President; a great deal about how easy it is to derail a Presidential transition and the first two years of any presidency; and a great deal about Chris Christie as a serious patriot who should be brought back by President to help him finish the job.  A good title.

This book exudes integrity. Chris Christie is the real deal.

5 Stars – Authentic – Honors the President While Exposing All Who Would Betray the President

President Donald Trump has a right to be angry about this book because it violates a non-disclosure agreement signed by the author. However, I am quite certain the President has not actually read the book or he would realize that the author treats him with honor and respect while revealing a great deal the President may not actually know, about how everyone in the White House, including his executive secretary provided by the Republican National Committee (RNC), is stabbing him in the back.

6 Stars Presidential Transitions Matter and President Trump Blew It — With Follow-on Consequences

Although I am a huge fan of President Trump — I wrote the first article on how he could win (“Counter-Coup: How Trump Can Win,” CounterPunch, 14 August 2018) and went on to write the 30 piece Trump Revolution Series, I also believe in learning from the mistakes of others — this book has a great deal to offer the next President.

Early on in the book we learn that then candidate Trump did not want a presidential transition team and refused to assign campaign funds for it. When he was persuaded by Chris Christie that he needed one and Christie offered to raise funds separately, Trump assented, only to blow a fuse when he learned Christie had raised $9 million.

QUOTE (21): “Trump was apoplectic, actually yelling, You’re stealing my money! You’re stealing my fucking money! What the fuck is this?

The book offers one capstone understanding and five insights that every presidential candidate should take deeply to heart:

Some books are so far out of my personal ability to digest in detail that I very rapidly convert to my scanning mode with one big question that I ask on every page: does this book and its author pass the smell test with me, and would I, if President, want to trust this author to help implement his ideas without necessarily understanding them in detail?

Not only is the answer for this book and this author a resounding YES, but on pages 31-32 I have a note, “Holy Shit! Could DT be doing all this?” Those two pages outline ten great deals that Donald Trump could be pursuing: peace, jobs, sound-money, Glass-Steagall, federalist, regulatory, liberty, health-care, fiscal, and governance.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Right Idea, Wrong Title — All Wars Are A Huge Success for the Bankers

I received this book as part of my registration for a 3 June 2017 conference on the Deep State, and I have the same problem with the book that I had with the conference: the author’s don’t “get” that every war is a massive success for the Rothschilds, the Vatican, the City of London, Wall Street, and the banks that fund all sides in every war. The bankers and the Khazarian mafia that uses the Freemasons (most unwitting) to dominate their “world order.”

4.0 out of 5 stars Truthful, Useful, Good Read for Any Patriotic Citizen, May 28, 2017

Sarah Westall –whom I know from her superb Business Game Changes video series — tells it like it is in Syria. The book gives you more than just the Syrian perspective, it also illustrates how the US Government (in our name and without Article 1 Constitutional authority) is creating and aligning itself with the most brutal regimes in human history, notably Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The U.S. is at risk of creating and backing a 2nd holocaust; the entire region will be ethnically cleansed, including Christians and moderate Muslims, by Islamic extremists.
