Obama's Odyssey (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Obama's Odyssey: The 2008 Race for the White House is a reporter's-eye view of events unfolding in 2007 and 2008 as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Joe Biden, Christopher Dodd, Bill Richardson (et al.) jockeyed for position for the Democratic nomination for president, while John McCain, Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney and others attempted to wrest control of the Republican nomination for their party. All ran for President in a wide-open free-for-all following the end of George W. Bush's 8 years in office. Author Connie (Corcoran) Wilson, a veteran reporter for five newspapers and numerous blogs, followed the candidates from the Iowa caucuses all the way through to the convention (Volume I) and, after that, from the convention through the tumultuous presidential campaign itself (Volume II), until President Barack Obama's Inauguration as the 44th President of the United States in January of 2009 (covered in Volume II). Writing as a member of the Yahoo Content Contributors' Network, retired sixty-something schoolteacher Wilson set off on an adventurous odyssey of her own that earned her the title 2008 Content Producer of the Year for Politics with 1,000 articles that garnered over three million hits. Filing three articles daily from the field, her adventures inside the Democratic National Convention in Denver, the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, the Ron Paul Rally for the Republic in Minneapolis, the Belmont Town Hall Meeting in Nashville or elsewhere (Florida, Nevada, etc.) are detailed, insightful and, at times, humorous. The parallels and insights gleaned from following the presidential campaign in 2008 provide useful background material for the presidential race of 2016 now underway--with some of the same candidates that ran 8 years ago in the field again today. Never one to ignore an amusing anecdote or photo, the quotes, facts and polling data are only one small component of an engrossing read with multiple pictures that sum up the end of an era in presidential campaigns as the use of the Internet and the increasing importance of money in campaigning are clearly cataloged. An entertaining, informative and relevant slice of recent history.

Forbidden Bookshelf (27 Book Series)
From Book 1:
A look at America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and the capitalists who changed the world—setting the stage for the most devastating global financial collapse in history—from “a diligent and perceptive reporter” (Forbes).

In the decades following the Civil War, America entered an era of unprecedented corporate expansion, with ultimate financial power in the hands of a few wealthy industrialists who exploited the system for everything it was worth. The Rockefellers, Fords, Morgans, and Vanderbilts were the “lords of creation” who, along with like-minded magnates, controlled the economic destiny of the country, unrestrained by regulations or moral imperatives. Through a combination of foresight, ingenuity, ruthlessness, and greed, America’s giants of industry remolded the US economy in their own image. They established their power and authority, ensuring that they—and they alone—would control the means of production, transportation, energy, and commerce—creating the conditions for the stock market collapse of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed.

As modern society continues to be affected by wealth inequality and cycles of boom and bust, it’s as important as ever to understand the origins of financial disaster, and the policies, practices, and people who bring them on. The Lords of Creation, first published when the catastrophe of the 1930s was still painfully fresh, is a fascinating story of bankers, railroad tycoons, steel magnates, speculators, scoundrels, and robber barons. It is a tale of innovation and shocking exploitation—and a sobering reminder that history can indeed repeat itself.

Joachim Gauck (Reihe in 2 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: Am 23. März 2012 wurde der ostdeutsche Ex-Pfarrer Joachim Gauck als elfter Bundespräsident vereidigt. Wenige Wochen zuvor war sein Vorgänger Christian Wulff von einer Phalanx höchst tugendhafter bundesdeutscher Medien aus dem Amt gejagt worden. Von den meisten Vertretern ebendieser Medienhäuser wird uns nun Joachim Gauck als charismatischer Bürgerrechtler, diplomatisch versierter Versöhner, erfolgreicher Stasi-Jäger und moralisch integrer Verfechter der Freiheit präsentiert.
Klaus Blessing und Manfred Manteufel melden an dieser Einschätzung deutliche Zweifel an. Unter Zuhilfenahme von Zitaten, Dokumenten und Zeitzeugen thematisieren sie neben anderem Gaucks fragwürdiges Verhältnis zum Faschismus, seine problematischen Äußerungen zur deutsch-polnischen Grenze wie auch seinen strittigen Umgang mit der eigenen Biographie. Es stellt sich die Frage: Ist der Neue der rechte Mann im Amt?

The Wilson Files (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Granny Clampett, on the TV sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies, described the War Between the States as “when the Yankees invaded America” and, indeed, it was!

Their invasion of America, however, goes back much farther than the conflict of 1861-1865. It began as soon as they dropped their anchor in Plymouth Bay. Since that time, they have meddled, cheated, and lied their way into every nook and cranny of American life.

The Southern people warned others about the radical utopians of New England, and even went to war to get away from them, but to no avail. Now all Americans, not just Southerners, are subject to the whims of “those people” and their never ending mission to recreate, not only America, but the entire world in their bizarre, sanctimonious image.

Dr. Clyde Wilson, in this first installment of The Wilson Files, takes the Yankee problem head-on. After decades of historical research and personal observation, he exposes and explains these pesky purveyors of mischief and mayhem!

If you want to understand America, American History, and the upside-down dystopian nightmare in which we all live, you have to understand the problem.

We do not have an economic problem, a race problem, a class problem, a gender problem, a toilet access problem, a drug problem, a gun problem, or any other ideological or social problem at the root of America’s dysfunctional anti-culture – we have a Yankee problem!

Grands Événements
Découvrez enfin tout ce qu’il faut savoir sur la chute du mur de Berlin en moins d’une heure !

9 novembre 1989. Après plus de 28 ans, le mur séparant Berlin-Ouest, démocratie à l’occidentale, et Berlin-Est, bastion de l’URSS, tombe enfin. Marquant la fin d’une guerre froide qui aura divisé le monde au lendemain de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, la chute du mur de Berlin annonce celle de tout un régime.

« Dans ce numéro de la collection « 50MINUTES|Grands Événements », Véronique Van Driessche nous fait découvrir la journée qui a vu tomber l’un des plus grands symboles de la guerre froide.

Grâce à la ferveur populaire, le mur finit par tomber dans la nuit du 9 au 10 novembre 1989, laissant apparaître un tout autre monde aux Berlinois de l’Est. » Stéphanie Dagrain

The Control Series (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: #1 bestselling author and popular radio and television host Glenn Beck shines a spotlight on today’s culture of violence and provides practical, timely, and fact-based answers to the most commonly heard gun-control arguments.

When our founding fathers secured the Constitutional “right of the people to keep and bear arms,” they also added the admonition that this right SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

It is the only time this phrase appears in the Bill of Rights. So why aren’t more people listening?

History has proven that guns are essential to self-defense and liberty—but tragedy is a powerful force and has led many to believe that guns are the enemy, that the Second Amendment is outdated, and that more restrictions or outright bans on firearms will somehow solve everything.

They are wrong.

In CONTROL, Glenn Beck presents a passionate, fact-based case for guns that reveals why gun control isn’t really about controlling guns at all; it’s about controlling us. In doing so, he takes on and debunks the common myths and outright lies that are often used to vilify guns and demean their owners:
The Second Amendment is ABOUT MUSKETS . . . GUN CONTROL WORKS in other countries . . . 40 percent of all guns are sold without BACKGROUND CHECKS . . . More GUNS MEAN more MURDER . . . Mass shootings are becoming more common . . . These awful MASSACRES ARE UNIQUE TO AMERICA . . . No CIVILIAN needs a “weapon of war” like the AR-15 . . . ARMED GUARDS in schools do nothing, just look at Columbine . . . Stop FEARMONGERING, no one is talking about TAKING YOUR GUNS AWAY.
Backed by hundreds of sources, this handbook gives everyone who cares about the Second Amendment the indisputable facts they need to reclaim the debate, defeat the fear, and take back their natural rights.

Revealed Conspiracies (5 Book Series)
From Book 1:

"Barack Hussein Obama, The Unauthorized Diary of a Muslim President"

A realistic look at how Barack Hussein Obama is aiding and abetting Islamic supremacists to "destroy America from within, by our own hands".

The book reveals the lie behind the phrase "Islam is a religion of peace".

Obama's "fundamental transformation" of the USA is revealed to be the destruction of the U.S. Constitution and the total elimination of the rights and freedoms Americans have lived with for over 200 years.

"Barack Hussein Obama, The Unauthorized Diary of a Muslim President" reveals an all-encompassing conspiracy to:

• Destroy the balance of power between the three divisions of the federal government, by illegitimately usurping power from the Supreme Court and Congress, and bolstering the powers of the Presidency to never-before-heard-of levels.

• Allow infiltration into the highest levels of government by communists, socialists and Muslim extremists, including into positions of national security and defense.

• Create massive and bitter divisions between all segments of our society. Rich, poor and middle class are pitted against each other. Divisions along racial, ethnic and gender lines are the worst they’ve been in years.

• Secretly give away the sovereignty of the United States to the United Nations, or some other One-World-Government.

• Grow the federal government so huge that State’s right are being left in the dust, as are parental rights and the family as a whole.

• Encourage illegal immigration of Muslim jihadist activists and weapons through our borders, while using the Department of Justice to STOP individual states from protecting their own borders.

• Allow Muslim supremacists to dictate to our law enforcement agencies what they can and can’t say in their training.

The divisiveness and rage among groups of citizens that is being fostered and encouraged by this administration simply makes us more vulnerable to attack from outside forces. When those outside forces have successfully infiltrated our own government, with the tacit approval of Barack Obama, we can see that a fuse is waiting to be lit.

When the explosion occurs, America as we know it will be devastated unless Americans become informed in time and unite to stop the destruction of the USA as a sovereign nation.

Why all the attempts to deceive the American public?

  • Why would Democrats claim a phony "War on Women", instead of publicizing the REAL War on Women being waged by Muslims?
  • Why have Americans been told by this administration that the "War on Terror" is over when terrorists are continuing to plot our overthrow by violence and stealth?
  • Why is so much information about Barack Hussein Obama still unavailable for inspection?
  • Where is the birth certificate? Is Obama's grandmother in Kenya just a confused old lady?
  • Can Obama be a Muslim and a communist?
  • What exactly does "fundamental transformation" mean?

These questions and more are answered in "Barack Hussein Obama The Muslim President, The Unauthorized Diary of a Muslim President", which was written for families, neighbors and all patriotic Americans.

The Fifth Risk

New York Times Bestseller



What are the consequences if the people given control over our government have no idea how it works?


"The election happened," remembers Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, then deputy secretary of the Department of Energy. "And then there was radio silence." Across all departments, similar stories were playing out: Trump appointees were few and far between; those that did show up were shockingly uninformed about the functions of their new workplace. Some even threw away the briefing books that had been prepared for them.


Michael Lewis’s brilliant narrative takes us into the engine rooms of a government under attack by its own leaders. In Agriculture the funding of vital programs like food stamps and school lunches is being slashed. The Commerce Department may not have enough staff to conduct the 2020 Census properly. Over at Energy, where international nuclear risk is managed, it’s not clear there will be enough inspectors to track and locate black market uranium before terrorists do.


Willful ignorance plays a role in these looming disasters. If your ambition is to maximize short-term gains without regard to the long-term cost, you are better off not knowing those costs. If you want to preserve your personal immunity to the hard problems, it’s better never to really understand those problems. There is upside to ignorance, and downside to knowledge. Knowledge makes life messier. It makes it a bit more difficult for a person who wishes to shrink the world to a worldview.


If there are dangerous fools in this book, there are also heroes, unsung, of course. They are the linchpins of the system—those public servants whose knowledge, dedication, and proactivity keep the machinery running. Michael Lewis finds them, and he asks them what keeps them up at night.
