    We are all going to have to just accept that Hilary Clinton is not going away. Especially now that her life story will be forever memorialized in an American Girl book. The book is called "A Girl Named Hillary: The True Story of Hillary Clinton," and is sure to be a lovely read. The book description explains: "The A Girl Named series tells the stories of how ordinary American girls grew up to be extraordinary American women. It took a lot of determination, courage, and confidence to become the first woman to be nominated for president by a major political party. A...
  • Book Ban: Muslim News Site Demands Amazon Withdraws Kassam’s ‘No Go Zones’

    A Muslim news website has demanded that online retailer Amazon remove Breitbart London editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam’s forthcoming book ‘No Go Zones: How Sharia Law is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You’ from its virtual shelves, branding it “Islamophobic hate”. The Muslim Vibe targeted Kassam’s book alongside a self-published work by Rebel Media contributor Tommy Robinson. The site, which has links to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), branded the as-yet-unreleased work a “fear mongering book… which claims Muslims are a growing serious cultural and political threat who want to impose ‘Sharia Law’ in Western countries”. CAIR has been declared a...

    WRSA: What does the title of your new novel refer to? Red sandstone cliffs are common to the coastal region of Morocco I’m writing about, and they feature in the story. All the Dan Kilmer novels are going to contain a geographical feature in their titles. So far I’ve used up “Cay” and “Cliffs”, so I don’t anticipate running out soon. WRSA: I couldn’t find Cape Zerhoun or Port Zerhoun on any maps of Morocco. It’s a composite of a few different locations, but is largely based on the historical pirate port of Salé from the corsair era but relocated...

    Breitbart ^ | Victoria Friedman
    Breitbart London Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM listeners that naivety over Shariah supremacism runs throughout the Western world, and that there is “very clear evidence” Islamist ghettos are appearing in the United States. Discussing his new book, No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You, on Tuesday, Kassam said he was struck by the “naivety through optimism that locals and officials had” in No Go Zone areas such as Rinkeby and Husby in Sweden, Molenbeek in Belgium, and Hamtramck in Detroit. “I met with nice people, well meaning people who...

    Former Breitbart Senior Editor MILO appeared alongside Breitbart Editor-In-Chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125 to discuss the success of MILO’s new book and the state of the American left. ... “Not to give too much praise to old school Republicans, but I used to laugh slightly when conservatives in America would say how difficult it was to get a book off the ground or to have a successful media career as a Republican or as a conservative,” he continued. “Launching this book I’ve realised they were right, and I think the left hates me...

    American Thinker ^ | 07/16/2017 | Rick Moran
    The man Democrats wanted fired when he was director of the FBI and then actually fired by Donald Trump, is seeking an 8 figure advance from publishers to write a book about his life. Former FBI Director James Comey met with representatives from several publishing houses in New York last week looking to ink a gigantic book deal that will be worth millions of dollars to him. Comey is being represented by one of the most prestigious agencies in the business and competition to get him signed will likely be fierce. Business Insider: "It's a book about leadership and...
  • The Heritage of Natural Law: Mark Levin on Rediscovering Americanism

    National Review ^ | July 15, 2017 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    Is there an enduring American character? For those who view our nation as at a tipping point, the question is urgent. Others scoff, “Why?” After all, if the American character is truly enduring, it will endure — the ship eventually will right itself to the extent it is off course. And if not, history will inevitably evolve it into something better, right? My friend Mark Levin would counter that this is the wrong way to look at it. The foundation of Americanism, he posits, is natural law. That does not just spontaneously appear, nor passively persevere. Understanding our natural-law roots,...

    My own experience of this unfathomable reach of consciousness drew me to explore uncharted territory in my novel The Half Life of Joshuahen I woke up, I couldn’t remember what year it was and I didn’t know why a doctor was standing over me, speaking Spanish. When I quizzed him, he told me it was 5 March 1992 and that I was in Ecuador. I couldn’t remember anything that happened in 1992, least of all going to Ecuador. Apparently, I had been in a bus crash; there had been a collision with a lorry. It was news to me. In...

    Townhall.com ^ | June 30, 2017 | David Limbaugh
    My friend Mark Levin is nothing if not a patriot of the first order. He loves the United States and its founding principles -- and his latest book, "Rediscovering Americanism," explains his passion and encourages ours. Levin believes that America's greatness lies in its unique founding ideals -- and documents -- and correctly observes how far we've strayed from those principles and the structure of government they inspired. In his other books, Levin has outlined the problems confronting us and proposed solutions, but in this book, he takes a deeper look into the Framers' vision and examines the anatomy and...

    Intellectual Takeout ^ | 6/24/16 | Daniel Lattier
    To gain admittance to college in the 17th century, students had to be able to read and translate various Latin authors on sight. 100 years ago, students were required to have read various classical works before being admitted. Today, however, many American students are being admitted to colleges without ever having read a book from start to finish. They are part of a cohort of students known as “book virgins.” The National Association of Scholars (NAS) has pointed out this phenomenon in their recent report titled “Beach Books: 2014-2016. What Do Colleges and Universities Want Students to Read Outside Class?”...

Communism for Kids, written by a German author who specializes in political theory and “queer politics,” was released last month. The thesis of the children’s book is that communism is “not that hard,” but has not been implemented in the right way. {..snip..}

    NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Clinton has a lot of plans for 2017, including some reflections on her stunning loss last fall to Donald Trump. The former secretary of state, senator and first lady is working on a book of personal essays expected to come out Sept. 26, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book, still untitled, is structured around hundreds of favorite quotations that have inspired her. The publisher said Clinton will use the quotes to "tell stories from her life, up to and including her experiences in the 2016 presidential campaign" and into her...

    There it is: a set of books in a Smithsonian shop criticizing the president. That this is a departure from tradition is suggested by the code of ethics set forth by the National Museum of American History (NMAH), which states that the museum must avoid “conduct that would compromise the integrity of or public confidence in the Smithsonian.” Moreover, since 1939, the Hatch Act has sought to “ensure that federal programs are administered in a nonpartisan fashion, to protect federal employees from political coercion in the workplace.” The paper-doll creator doesn’t appear to share that perspective. In a “2016 Year...

News that Pantsuit Nation founder Libby Chamberlain would be putting out a tome next May based on comments from the popular page — which has some 4 million members — prompted a flood of angry comments calling the Brooklin, Maine, woman a sellout.
