SUMMARY REVIEW

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.

This is a summary review of a 741 page book that is so very important, so comprehensive, that I feel compelled to go far past my normal 4-6 page review and offer the enlightened and skeptical readers a 40 page summary with quotes and links.

My INTENT is to inspire purchase of the book even if only to browse multiple chapters. David Icke has produced a master work. The index alone is an education. I am the author of this review and have previously published it free online at https://phibetaiota.net, my personal blog. I have given myself permission to republish this as a Kindle for the convenience of those who love Kindle.

There are three kinds of holistic thinking: secular, ecological, and cosmic. With the exception of David Icke I know of no one, anywhere, who actually thinks holistically at all three levels (I fall short at the cosmic level).

Tomi Lahren is a cross-over talent, an independent critical thinker with both sass and grace. She is totally in step with First Lady Melania Trump on “be best” and she is, in contrast to the other authors that are erudite on one end and pundishly legalistic on the other, the common sense middle ground.

On an impulse, after reading and then writing rave reviews of George Will’s deep tome, The Conservative Sensibility, and Democrat Marianne Williamson’s A Politics of Love I was moved by forces unknown to buy this book, and I lucked out.

7 Stars – Handbook for an American Renaissance – Life Transformative

Robert David Steele

This book is a masterwork, a capstone work for the author, for his time, for the Republic, and for We the People who have lost our Republic. Of the over 2,500 books I have reviewed, 10% of which have received a 6 star rating, this book is easily in the top 25 and perhaps the top 10. The last book I remember that impressed me this much was Philip Allot’s The Health of Nations: Society and Law beyond the State (Cambridge, 2002) but this book is closer to home, focused on the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the collapse of the US federal government with a Presidency run amok, a Congress in abdication, and a judiciary all too passive as the Constitution is shredded.

This glorious piece of work, clearly a handcrafted deeply researched endeavor (not a collection of past columns) that draws on all forms of erudition from poetry and theater and fiction to history, philosophy, and science, is noteworthy for integrating deep and diverse citations from the varied leading individuals in the US executive, US legislature, and US judiciary.

The top four points made by this book, in my view, are these:

SUMMARY REVIEW

David Icke, Everything You Need to Know But Have Never Been Told (David Icke Books, 2018). 750 pages.

6 Star: Measured Revelation on the War Between Humanity and the Satanic Deep State

Reviewed by Robert David Steele

There are three kinds of holistic thinking: secular, ecological, and cosmic. With the exception of David Icke I know of no one, anywhere, who actually thinks holistically at all three levels (I fall short at the cosmic level).

While this book is a monster to read at 741 pages, it is most ably put together with eighteen chapters that I will summarize individually, each chapter liberally illustrated with graphics from his epic personal appearances that are now intellectual and spiritual “rock star” events. If the Pope worshiping Satan on Easter Sunday is the pinnacle of evil, then David Icke saying “We are One – BE the God Particle” is the cosmic “absolute good” and alternative to the evil represented by the Zionists, the Vatican, and the varied secret societies who thrive on chaos, on war, on human suffering and human trafficking, on fear & hate energy.

The CIA Takeover of America in the 1960s Is the Story of Our Times

Edward Curtin in Unz Review

The assassination of the top four leaders of the political left in the five year period – President John Kennedy in 1963, Malcolm X in 1965, and Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy in 1968 – represented nothing less than a slow-motion coup on the political scene.

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:
