"The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and other Anti-American Extremists." by Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott.

This book is an intensive investigation into Obama's personal and political background. Those on the Left have been alarmed by the book and are trying to discredit the authors. But they have not seen fit to challenge the core content from what I have read.

After my read I would think that the Democratic Party, as a whole, should feel like their party has been hijacked by a pretender. There are too many inconsistencies in what he claims in his two autobiographies and what is known about him. Add to that someone so intent on covering up his past and you have the making for a great conspiracy theory about the man.

The book clearly documents the numerous links of radical activists to Barrack Obama throughout his life. Socialists, communists, and activists of all kinds fill the pages. There is little doubt with whom he associated. But that is not new news. It is just under-reported.

The book does a good job of describing his early associations and how those ties helped bring about his rise to power. Facts and personal interviews are well presented and well documented.

While the book is enjoyable to read and reinforcing to what those of us on the Right suspect, it is also a rehash of a lot of information and I found it a little too redundant to recommend to others.

Amazing phrophetic Ayn Rand interview- 1959

Matters on the world stage can move at a glacial pace, but move they do. This interview of Ayn Rand by a young Mike Wallace who is outclassed and can not even wrap his mind around the concept of human Liberty as a pre-condition for optimal survival of humanity, is actually amusing.


Certainly the outcome of "Atlas Shrugged" is beginning to crystalize in our politico/economic system with a comparable prognosis.


Enjoy!


Ayn Rand Interview, 1959:


In any event, here are the links to the interview, in three parts.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Ayn is the founder of the "Objectivism" philosophy/movement and author of Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead and The Virtue of Selfishness.
Barack Obama Unmasked- Review of The Manchurian President

http://noisyroom.net/blog/2010/06/14/barack-obama-unmasked/


also recommended: The Obama Timeline
Wow! What an extensive review and a compelling one.

I notice on Amazon the book has a good rating even though liberals are sure to try to knock it down:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1935071874?ie=UTF8&tag=ispabey...

In fact - There are 58 five-star reviews and 32 one-star reviews. Very few in the middle.

Best,

Ah, yes-- a polarizing text :-)
In Search of Self Governance by Scott Rasmussen

This is just a quick book review. Actually, it is not really a book: 76 pages of large print - which you can read in less than an hour.

I am a fan of Rasmussen polls, so I was looking forward to this book. Unfortunately I was not impressed. For the price of $ 15.95 I expected a bigger book with more in-depth content.

Mr. Rasmussen's premise is that self-governance happens when people go about their daily lives; when they give to charities; when they help in their community; when they make things better in their immediate environment; when they make their own choices about purchases and who to befriend. He says what goes on in the halls of government is far less important than how we conduct our daily lives and how we make our daily choices. Nevertheless, the halls of government have become corrupt and self-serving so people must wake up and pay attention for a time in order to straighten out their government. Then we can go back to living our daily lives again without paying much attention to politics.

Mr. Rasmussen also says that change will not happen swiftly or dramatically. He suggests that we must swing the political pendulum in our direction gradually by getting incumbents to modify their behavior. He believes we will have little success bringing new people to the political class and so we must focus on swaying the current leaders a little bit in the direction of liberty and free will for the people.

I found Mr. Rasmussen's points interesting but not sufficient to bring about the kind of change we desperately need in this country. His plan lacks urgency, lacks conviction, and does not provide much motivation.

I had great hopes for this book but can not recommend it.

Best regards,
Lee
Brian I think this is a great idea, how may people can your space accommodate? I am sorry but I just saw this comment as I was reading through the book review and getting ready to write one of my own. Let me know and we can work on setting something up. You can contact me at dms@sbcglobal.net
We have an author as a member of our site, Don Fredrick. He has written 3 books and I have read all three. I recommend them all. They are:
The Obama Timeline
What You Don't Know About Economics Can Hurt You
Colony 14
All are available on Amazon.com
They are all extremely good books for the whole family. Every high school student should read the book on economics which presents basic principles and realities of economics in very accessible ways.
Colony 14 is a fun science fiction book which is the modern version of Heinlein's The Moon is s Harsh Mistress. Adults and teens alike will enjoy this book.
The Obama Timeline is required reading for all Tea Party Patriots and those who want to know the truth about the tragedy or our first black president.
Thanks for the kind words, David!

Some people may also be interested in reading "The Last Black President," an article I wrote in March 2009:

I finished the Overton Window, GREAT READ!
Beck writes much like Terry Goodkind who is a student of Ayn Rand.
If anyone is interested in libertarian based fantasy/political fiction, read "The Law of Nines" by Terry Goodkind.
For Libertarian-based pure fantasy in the vain of J.R.R. Tolkien, Terry Goodkind's series "The Sword of Truth".
A little trivia on Ayn Rand;

Two of Ayn Rand's best friends was author, Laura Ingalls Wilder and Wilder's daughter, Rose Wilder Lane.
I was raised in Southwest Missouri, no too far from Laura Ingalls Wilder's home in Mansfield Missouri and I have visited the Wilder home and museum there.
There are many letters from Ayn Rand to Laura and her daughter, Rose, displayed at the Wilder Museum, and Rose Wilder Lane worked with Ayn Rand for some period of time in New York, also Lane was one of the early creators of the Libertarian Party along with Rand.

Here are some titles to books on Libertarianism by Rose Wilder Lane;
"Give Me Liberty (1936)"; " The Discovery of Freedom ( 1943)"; and "What Is This: The Gestapo? (1943)

“consequently, that the ultimate right of the parties to the Constitution (i.e. the States), to judge whether the compact has been dangerously violated, must extend to violations by one delegated authority as well as by another--by the judiciary as well as by the executive, or the legislature.” Virginia Assembly Report 1800, James Madison.

Everybody is still talking about the other baby, the royal baby. In fact, I saw that President Obama released a statement congratulating Prince William and Kate Middleton on the birth of their son. Then he said, “And whatever you do — hang on to that birth certificate.” - Jimmy Fallon

"There are 27 amendments in the Constitution but only one says 'shall not be infringed,'" Steve Toth said. "The Second Amendment is the amendment that keeps the people free."

“The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.” – James Madison 

"When you disarm the people, you commence to offend them and show that you distrust them either through cowardice or lack of confidence, and both of these opinions generate hatred." - Niccolo Machiavelli

"A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."

This country does not need to have a conversation about how many bullets should go in a clip. It does need to have a conversation about how many parents should go in a family. It needs to talk about the ghettos of Obamerica and have a serious conversation about broken families and generational dependency. It needs to have a conversation about funneling new immigrants from broken parts of the world into areas already suffering from high levels of unemployment and street violence.- Daniel Greenfield

Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty." -- Thomas Jefferson

“Disarmament of the populace is always the first step to depriving them of their civil rights and human rights…many African-Americans and women are actively assaulting the very document that first secured their own freedom... if you do not believe in the Bill of Rights, then you are not, at heart, an American.” – Mike Adams

Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

We need to demythologize guns before the liberal attempt to create a totemic fear of them succeeds. If the gun control mentality promoting fear of guns themselves becomes our national mentality, we would turn the clock back to the days when a warrior class ruled over the people because only they had the confidence and expertise to deploy the means of defense and coercion. The gun control agenda will turn us into a people too timid to defend themselves from our would-be masters. – Alan Keyes

So now that there is a new tragedy the president wants to have a “national conversation on guns”. Here’s the thing. Until this national conversation is willing to entertain allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons, then it isn’t a conversation at all, it is a lecture. – Larry Correia'

During his 1956 presidential campaign, a woman called out to Adlai Stevenson: Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person! Stevenson called back: That's not enough, madam, we need a majority.

The economy is so bad, MSNBC had to lay off 300 Obama spokesmen. - Jay Leno

“What we’re watching here today is the equivalent of Woodward and Bernstein helping Nixon cover up Watergate,” he said. “The mainstream media is Woodward and Bernstein. Watergate is Benghazi. Except this time, Woodward and Bernstein are helping Nixon cover it up.”-- Russ Limbaugh

Lets see if I have this straight...Former President Bill Clinton ... who lied to his own wife... was convicted of perjury ... disbarred from practicing law in his home state... an admitted philanderer ... who "Never had sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky" ...

How can we stand up to someone that creates a 100 dollar Federal Reserve (FR) note for 2 cents and uses the face value of the note of 100 dollars to buy a 100 dollar U.S. Security where the government has to pay them 4% in interest at the end of the year? A yearly cost of 4 FR notes where it only cost the FR 2 cents to print.

This is the biggest Conspiracy you may ever encounter and this started sometime around 1913. Yes, your parents and their parents had so much of their time stolen from them at a cost of 2 pennies. And the National Debt is one big fraud. And this is not just in the United States but the whole world.- Steven Pattison

“Can you imagine a nation founded on the principles of God is being taken over by a party that despises God, denies God’s existence and wants to stab Israel in the back in order to support the Islamists who would kill the Jews and drive them out of the Middle East?”- - Michael Savage

"WE own this country, and when someone doesn't do the job "we have to let them go."- Clint Eastwood at RNC

"If you've got a business -- you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen”- Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro

“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through the process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”
- President American Bankers Association, 1924

"I think it is wonderful that Eric holder is making sure that Mexicans' second amendment rights are preserved!" - Bobby Florenz

He can say he did and the people who really know what happened are inside the Pentagon, are in the military and the military isn’t allowed to speak out against the commander- in-chief so his secret is safe.’—Chris Kyle, former SEAL sniper

"Sixty-one percent of debt issued by the Treasury is bought by the Federal Reserve -- which is to say the left hand of the U.S. Government is lending money to the right hand of the US Government. ... Nonetheless, in a land where every mewling babe in the American nursery is born with a debt burden of just under $200,000, the president brags that only his party is 'compassionate' to have no plan whatsoever even to attempt to do anything about this, no way, no how, not now, not ever." --columnist Mark Steyn

Isn't it amazing how every facet of Sergeant Bales life,  high school, college, employment, why he left his employment, his brother’s employment, his wife’s employment, real estate holdings, a missed house payment , a missed promotion etc., is exposed within a week and the same fact finders can't find comparable info on the most powerful man in the world in three plus years ?
