Book Description (from Amazon.Com):

The Nonpatriotic President: A Survey of the Clinton Years is a collection of essays covering Bill Clinton's years as president, starting with his inauguration in 1993, and ending with the 2000 presidential campaign. The book examines, sometimes with humor, a wide range of Clinton-centered issues: the role of the media in his presidency; the cult of celebrity that surrounded him - and which he encouraged - while in office; the conflicts crested by his wife's status as an unelected wielder of power.

A God-less Pledge? God Forbid! If not "under God," then whom are we under?
If He's not in charge, then who is? I wonder.
A phrase on our money declares Whom we trust.
Is it just a slogan corroded with rust?
Though now it is lawful to sing Irving's song,
will "God Bless America" soon be deemed wrong?
Yet are we one nation except under Him?
To make such a claim is an ungrounded whim.
Because all our framers were mindful of God,
to absent Him fully is treasonous fraud.
The woman who raises a torch in her hand
stands ready to welcome the world to our land.
But God is not welcome. There's no room, it seems,
for Him who gave rise to America's dream.
How dare we be God-less. How foolish indeed,
when He is the reason our nation was freed.
The Pledge without God's name is best left unsaid.
To say it without Him suggests He is dead.
And so I'm appealing to those gowned in black
that our Pledge of Allegiance be maintained intact

Limited number of autographed, personalized versions of David Limbaugh's new smash bestseller!
Sep. 23, 2003

In his latest book, "PERSECUTION: How Liberals Are Waging Political War Against Christianity" -- already on the New York Times Bestseller list - bestselling author David Limbaugh makes a compelling case that liberals across the country are waging an undeclared war on Christianity in our culture and in our government -- especially our schools. Limbaugh exposes the farce of liberal "tolerance" and reveals the true agenda of liberals who misuse the law to force Christianity out of the public square.

"Persecution" shows how:

  • A Georgia school board, after being threatened with a suit by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), deleted the word "Christmas" from the school calendar.
  • A Frederick County, Md., school employee was prohibited from passing out Christmas cards at school because it "may not be a legally protected right on a public school campus."
  • The ACLU went on the offensive when county road crews helped erect a religious sign along the highway even though no state funds were used for the sign and such crews regularly assist private groups when requested.
  • The liberal double standard allows intolerance of Christianity, yet promotes non-traditional, non-Western celebrations, such as Kwanza.
  • The liberal war against Christianity is a threat to the freedom of all Americans regardless of their religious persuasion.

"Persecution" is a wake-up call to lovers of liberty everywhere and a call to action to conservatives and Christians to defend the religious freedom envisioned and practiced by the founders.

Wide acclaim for "Persecution":

Michelle Malkin:

"With passion and precision, David Limbaugh provides overwhelming evidence of discrimination against Christians in America. From the courtroom to the schoolroom to the newsroom, 'Persecution' exposes the hypocrisy and bigotry of the secular, anti-Christian Left. Limbaugh's meticulously researched book is a devastating indictment of liberal intolerance -- and a call to arms for all true believers of religious liberty to reclaim their rightful place in the public square."

Sean Hannity:

"At last -- some sense in the Church/State debate! In his great new book 'Persecution,' David Limbaugh shows how liberals have undermined our Constitution and are waging undeclared war on the very people -- Americans of faith -- who have made America the beacon of freedom and justice that it is. Buy this book, read it, and send a copy to every politician, judge, and Supreme Court Justice you can find."

D. James Kennedy:

"Often the people who clamor for tolerance are among the most intolerant people in our society. David Limbaugh documents this in his new book, 'Persecution' -- in particular, the intolerance against Christians. This book is sorely needed in our day when the only 'acceptable' prejudice of our day is the bias against Christians."

New Book from WND

Authors of stunning and authoritative new book say just-released evidence shows who really killed JFK

As the 40th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy approaches, theories about who was responsible for his death continue unabated, reflecting polls showing most Americans don't believe the official version.

One website lists no less than 36 different theories that have floated around over the past four decades.

An upcoming release by WND Books, however, based on recently declassified federal documents, material supplied by the KGB, information from the Bonano crime family, documents obtained from a French court and the only interview done with a French witness previously only debriefed by the FBI and CIA, promises to cut through the confusion and completely change the debate.

In "Triangle of Death," co-authors Brad O'Leary and L.E. Seymour untangle for readers a seemingly outrageous web that becomes increasingly convincing with each corroborated detail.

They build a case that leads to a stunning, but convincing conclusion: President John F. Kennedy was killed Nov. 22, 1963, as the result of a massive conspiracy between the CIA-installed government of South Vietnam, the French global heroin syndicate and the New Orleans Mafia.

Read the astounding and in-depth story about this next, sure-fire bestseller from WND Books .

Or better yet, reserve your copy of "Triangle of Death" now from the source, WorldNetDaily.

'Scam': Hot off the press and available today for the first time!

The latest release from WND Books is destined to be another best seller as it shakes the so-called civil-rights movement to the core.

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson's "Scam" shines a much-needed light on the methods of establishment "black leaders" and exposes them as con artists who gain power by promoting racial tension and class warfare. This is a book people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton hope never sees the light of day.

In "Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America," Peterson - a true black leader whom many affectionately call "the other Jesse" - shows how the civil-rights establishment has made a lucrative career out of keeping racial strife alive in America.

He reveals how establishment black leaders endlessly promise solutions to the problems of America's inner cities, but deliver only ineffective Band-Aids. From the dismal failure of the welfare system, to the farce of the slavery-reparations movement, to the problems within black churches and the hypocrisy and corruption of current black "leaders," Peterson argues compellingly that the real crisis we face is spiritual, and that no economic solution will suffice. He skillfully weaves the realms of politics, culture, psychology and religion into this profound and relevant book.

Rather than promote perpetual victimhood, Peterson offers a platform of true empowerment, teaching individuals and families how to tap into the power within, rather than depending on handouts.

Peterson is a successful entrepreneur, motivational speaker, author, and founder/president of a highly successful counseling organization, the Los Angeles-based Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny or B.O.N.D. -- whose purpose is "rebuilding the family by rebuilding the man."

Featured on many news programs, including CNN, Fox News, World News Tonight With Peter Jennings, and Nightline with Ted Koppel, Peterson also hosts his own live call-in radio talk show in Los Angeles, and the "Jesse Peterson Show" on MediaOne television in South Central Los Angeles.

Well-known for his public criticism of "black leaders," Peterson considers Jesse Jackson a "racist demagogue, a David Duke in black skin." In fact, for the past four years, "the other Jesse" has held an annual event called the "National Day of repudiation of Jesse Jackson."

"Scam" is just released from WND Books! Beginning today, the book is available for immediate shipping when ordered from WorldNetDaily's online store, ShopNetDaily.

Incredible Paris Music Video for download
Aug. 10, 2003

This Hip-hoppish Rap song "What would you do?"

What Would You Do?
Listen To This Great Song About 911

What Would You Do?
Lyrics by "Paris" has a powerful mass appeal particularly for the youth. I would urge you to pass this video onto everyone (not young kids though), and watch it a few times. It was recently put together by Eric Rainbolt, an Austin Texas cable access producer and friend of Alex Jones.

"What would you do?"

It is the song put to video clips of various New World Order minions who are attempting to destroy freedom and civilization itself, and to totally enslave the survivors in a horrible system of tyranny, corruption and evil. This is their confirmed NWO plan, this is why they set up 9/11 as their prime pretext and this is the subject of the song.

There is one thing Paris is not quite right about in the lyrics. He says that "we the ones that planned it. Aint no other country had their hand in it" referring to 9/11 and I must insist that it was not "we" but a globalist Trojan Horse criminal cabal of royal and banking internationalists known as the Illuminati who have highjacked our government, including the military and the intelligence agencies.

They have engineered 9/11 to serve as a pretext for perpetual war, a tyrannical high-tech global police state blessed and administered by the UN and to carry out massive embezzelments and other high crimes. This is not just about America. The whole world is being systematically transformed by design and by cooperation among almost all the puppet leaders. Our country is being used by the globalists to physically enact this global police state prison planet. When people get that, then they get free of the Right/Left/UN Good Cop/US Bad Cop mind-control paradigm. This is ESSENTIAL because if we get tangled up in the labels and misdiagnose the problem, we will just feed the flames of this Hegelian Agenda.

There is a bit of rough language, but I tell you it is appropriate to the subject, which is HIGH TREASON! Yeah, there is no worse crime that high treason, certain betrayal of a nation and of humanity itself which goes right along with mass-murder, hand-in-glove.

This is our present predicament and this will be our future suffering if we don't react powerfully and stand up both as individuals and united as brothers and sisters against this tyranny. First we must awaken to the full horror of it so that we know exactly what we are up against and then face it bravely. Know the ENEMY! This song and the video helps us to see them more clearly as they are.

Liberty and justice for all!

A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War
by Dr. Thomas J. DiLorenzo

Book Review by Mark Dankof

The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War
by Dr. Thomas J. DiLorenzo
Prima Publishing: Roseville, California
333 pages,
ISBN: 0-7615-3641-8

Reviewed by Mark Dankof for Mark Dankof’s America and News and Views Re-post and re-publishing permission granted with attribution.

While I have considered the preservation of the constitutional power of the General Government to be the foundation of our peace and safety at home and abroad, I yet believe that the maintenance of the rights and authority reserved to the states and to the people, not only are essential to the adjustment and balance of the general system, but the safeguard to the continuance of a free government. I consider it as the chief source of stability to our political system, whereas the consolidation of the states into one vast republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of that ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded it.
–General Robert E. Lee to Lord Acton on December 15th, 1866 quoted in The Real Lincoln (p. 268)

The former Iranian Ambassador to the United Nations, Fereydoun Hoveyda, has recently brought his considerable historical knowledge of ancient and modern Persia to the task of writing about the role of mythology in explaining facets of Iranian cultural, political, and religious life to the uninitiated in the Western world.

Hoveyda’s invaluable contribution in this regard is matched in the American political and cultural context by Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo, professor of economics in the Sellinger School of Business and Management at Loyola College in Maryland, in the latter’s salient, prescient analysis of the Presidential reign of Abraham Lincoln and his prosecution of an American Civil War in The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War.

DiLorenzo’s analysis of Lincoln, accompanied by copious historical documentation, shatters the mythology surrounding the 16th President’s motives and agenda in pursuing the War Between The States. The author provides convincing evidence for Lincoln’s overt racism as expressed in his documented views on racial supremacy as manifested in his desire to colonize all American blacks outside the continental United States (p. 4); that Lincoln’s views were matched by a palpable majority in the North who utilized such tools as state constitutional amendments to prohibit the emigration of black people into Northern states like the President’s home state of Illinois (p. 4); and that Lincoln’s war which killed 620,000 Americans [equivalent to 5 million deaths in 2002 population numbers and percentages] and destroyed 40 percent of the American economy, was a singularly terrible, unjustified conflict given the proven success in the 19th century of the peaceful end to slavery through the policy of compensated emancipation (p. 4). DiLorenzo duly notes that, “Between 1800 and 1860, dozens of countries, including the entire British Empire, ended slavery peacefully; only in the United States was a war involved (p. 4).”

What then, does The Real Lincoln lay out as the actual road map for understanding the war and the accompanying strategy and psyche of Abraham Lincoln in resorting to armed force against the Southern states? In his tome, DiLorenzo underscores the mythological President’s political and moral failure in pursuing the bloodshed of fellow countrymen with an evil, unnecessary, coercive methodology. The author insists that the prevailing world-wide trends between 1800-1860 would have resulted in the irenic end to the institution of slavery by; 1) compensated emancipation; 2) an encouraged advance of the industrial revolution in the South with capital-intensive agriculture and manufacturing (p. 277); and 3) the inevitable furtherance of Enlightenment philosophy in the American mind and culture, a philosophy which in the end game would have been ideologically incompatible with the continuation of the institution, as had been the case throughout the British empire (pp. 276-277). For the Loyola College Professor of Economics, the real Lincoln agenda in the War Between the States is located in the fact that: . . .the War Between the States so fundamentally transformed the nature of American government. Before the war, government in America was the highly decentralized, limited government established by the founding fathers. The war created the highly centralized state that Americans labor under today. The purpose of American government was transformed from the defense of individual liberty to the quest for empire.

  • Lincoln thought of himself as the heir to the Hamiltonian political tradition, which sought a much more centralized governmental system, one that would plan economic development with corporate subsidies financed by protectionist tariffs and the printing of money by the central government.
  • It was Lincoln’s real agenda.
  • Henry Clay’s “American System.” For his entire political life Lincoln was devoted to Clay and Clay’s economic agenda. The debate over this economic agenda was arguably the most important political debate during the first seventy years of the nation’s existence. It involved the nation’s most prominent statesmen and pitted the states’ rights Jeffersonians against the centralizing Hamiltonians (who became Whigs and, later, Republicans). The violence of war finally ended the debate in 1861.
  • A war was not necessary to free the slaves, but it was necessary to destroy the most significant check on the powers of the central government: the right of
  • secession. (Introduction)

Chapter 5 demonstrates that this right of secession was rooted in the proper understanding of the Declaration of Independence as a “Declaration of Secession” from England, with the New England Federalists attempting to secede from the Union after Jefferson’s election in 1800, for more than a decade. DiLorenzo documents the pre-1861 assumption of most commentators in both North and South that states had the inherent right to secede from the Union as a last check on the excesses of an arbitrary, centralized Federal government, buttressing his case with telling quotations from Jefferson, John Quincy Adams (a Unionist), de Tocqueville, and even Alexander Hamilton. It was Lincoln, however, who invented the preposterous theory that the Federal government created the states, which were therefore not sovereign entities, subsequently waging a war to establish his deliberate inversion of the Constitutional intent of the founders. The Federal government became by force of the sword an involuntary Union, “the master, rather than the servant, of the people–especially once it imposed military conscription and income taxation on the population (p. 264).” Thus, the “American System” of Henry Clay began its implementation in earnest with Abraham Lincoln, creating a Leviathan Central State of oppressive taxation and regulation at home, and imperialistic expansion abroad, that has been unchecked ever since.

The Real Lincoln also underscores the importance of the individual tenets of the Clay/Lincoln program of economic centralization in the destruction of a Constitutionally informed American Federalism, especially in protectionism; government control of the money supply through a nationalized banking system; and government subsidies for railroad, shipping, and canal-building enterprises (p. 54). DiLorenzo summarizes the economic agenda end game of the “American System” by quoting Murray Rothbard’s classic equation of the former with:

. . . namely, mercantilism. . . . ‘which reached its height in the Europe of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries,’ [and] was ‘a system of statism which employed economic fallacy to build up a structure of imperial state power, as well as special subsidy and monopolistic privilege to individuals or groups favored by the state.’ (56)

This economic system, presided over by the man William Lloyd Garrison tagged as the “President of African Colonization,” (p. 19) dovetailed perfectly with the rest of the 16th President’s statist agenda, implemented with a methodology that effectively mixed duplicity with coercion. Seen with these lenses, the “liberator of the slaves” becomes the manipulative issuer of an Emancipation Proclamation which liberated blacks only in rebel-held territories after Lee’s defeat of Burnside at Fredericksburg in December of 1862. Lincoln’s Proclamation issued exemptions for a list of enumerated states, and was designed to liberate only those slaves which could be utilized for servile insurrection on isolated plantations (pp. 42-43), while concurrently discouraging European trade and political support for the Confederacy (pp. 37-38). The Great Economic Centralizer may also be fully credited for:

  • launching a military invasion without the consent of Congress; suspending habeas corpus; imprisoning thousands of Northern citizens without trial for merely opposing his policies; censoring all telegraph communication and imprisoning dozens of opposition newspaper publishers; nationalizing the railroads; using Federal troops to interfere with elections; confiscating firearms; and deporting an opposition member of Congress, Clement L. Vallandigham, after he opposed Lincoln’s income tax proposal during a Democratic Party rally in Ohio.
  • In addition to abandoning the Constitution, the Lincoln administration established another ominous precedent by deciding to abandon international law and the accepted moral code of civilized societies and wage war on civilians. (p. 6)

In this latter regard, DiLorenzo reminds the reader of the scorched earth policies of Sheridan, Grant, and William Tecumseh Sherman, not only in the War Between the States but in the post-war eradication of the Plains Indians in acts of mass murder designed to pave the way for the government’s transcontinental railroads; the exploitative policies of Lincoln’s successors in the Reconstructionist South of 1865-77; and the subsequent imperialistic policies abroad of McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and their successors in the furtherance of American Empire. In each case, The Real Lincoln makes a compelling case that in an epochal sense, it all began with the methods and motives of America’s 16th President.

Finally, the informed reader of The Real Lincoln will be duly impressed with the ominous parallels between the Republican 16th President and the Republican 43rd Chief Executive of the United States. It is George W. Bush who has gone beyond Lincoln’s national centralized banking in facilitating globalist financial structures like the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, The North American Free Trade Agreement the World Trade Organization, GATT, and the proposed Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (managed trade, not free trade). It is Mr. Bush who has increased Federal spending beyond that of his predecessor for a variety of agencies, including new monies for the Federal Department of Education. It is Mr. Bush who has prosecuted an offensive war against a foreign power without the necessary consent and authorization of Congress according to Article 1, Section 8. Similarly, it is Mr. Bush whose Administration seeks, through the USA Patriot Act and the Domestic Security Enhancement Act (DSEA), the broadest authority ever given the Executive Branch of the Federal government to conduct warrantless searches and seizures of homes and businesses; to hold citizen suspects in custody without legal representation for unspecified periods of time; and to pursue the broadest expansion of electronic surveillance operations in the history of the United States. And where 19th century British mercantilism is concerned, Murray Rothbard’s textbook definition of it as government’s special subsidy and monopolistic privilege to individuals or groups favored by the state, must be applied in spades to the monarchial reign of King George W. Bush and his cabal of advisers influenced by international bankers, oil and natural gas consortiums, insurance and media conglomerates, and the much vaunted Israeli Lobby. The 19th century Credit Mobilier and Union Pacific and Central Pacific Railroads are now the domain of UNOCAL; Halliburton Oil; Kellogg, Brown, and Root; Trieme Partners; Exxon/Mobil; Chevron; Paladin Capital; the Carlyle Group; and the American Israeli Political Action Committee (AIPAC). And in this merger of the denizens of the Central State with multinational economic conglomerates and globalist structures of impending World Government, the American military in most Lincolnesque fashion, now serves as the janissaries of coercive interests totally at odds with historic American Federalism and those the latter was designed to protect.
