Book Review: “Assault and Flattery”

Book Review: “Assault and Flattery”

In the modern era, the Democrat Party and the American Left have claimed to be the champions of “women’s rights.” We are told that the Republican Party and the American Right are misogynists who are actively engaged in a “war on women.” We are constantly hearing the Left engaging in histrionics to convince women that Republicans hate women. But as a new book explains, the real war on women is being waged by the American Left. Katie Pavlich, news editor at Townhall Magazine and contributor at FOX News, has authored Assault and Flattery: The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women, which blows the lid off the Left’s fraudulent narrative. Pavlich has done the yeoman’s work here, taking a two-by-four to the Left’s incredible sham of posing as advocates for the fairer sex while they sanctimoniously defend rapists, lechers, and in one case, a woman’s death. Pavlich takes apart the Left’s claims about being the protectors of women one by one. She goes through the history of how...

Some Summer Reading for 2014

Some Summer Reading for 2014

Summer is officially here, which means many of you will be heading for vacation.   Whether your getaway spot is the beach, the mountains, or grandma’s house this summer, you might be looking for a good book to take along with you. Well friends, look no further, because I’m here to help you out. Here is my official reading list:   1) James Madison: A Life Reconsidered Author: Lynne Cheney Lynne Cheney has a new book out about the fourth president of our Republic, James Madison. Madison is described as “a man of vaunted modesty who audaciously changed the world.” Madison is the author of the United States Constitution and a man whose vision and insights capture the essence of the system of limited government and individual liberty so many of us believe in. In an interview with Hugh Hewitt, Mrs. Cheney refers to Madison as a genius. She says, “Some people have questioned whether Madison qualifies as a genius, you know, and I think it’s because we don’t...

R.I.P Vince Flynn (1966-2013)

R.I.P Vince Flynn (1966-2013)

Terribly sad news today about the passing of Vince Flynn at age 47. Hugh Hewitt has featured Vince’s books on his radio show, and they have a well-deserved place on the Necessary Bookshelf, Hugh’s list of recommended authors. I had read Memorial Day on an airplane long before I heard Vince on Hugh’s show, but had no idea about Vince’s body of work until after hearing Vince interviewed at length on the radio.  (It also didn’t hurt that the protagonist of Vince’s books, Mitch Rapp, was someone with whom I could relate … 8^) Here is Vince pictured with Brad Thor, another thriller author who Hugh has featured and introduced to his listeners. I’ve met Brad at a book signing, but never had the opportunity to meet Vince, and regretfully, that opportunity will now never come. “Everything is secure up here.” – Mitch Rapp, Act of Treason   Edit: Hugh’s tribute, with links to his interviews with Vince Flynn, is...

Jay Parker: American Revolutionary

Jay Parker: American Revolutionary

  There are two types of revolutionary: those who tear down countries and those who build them up.   Jay Parker is the revolutionary who builds his country up. In the 1960s, he chose principled patriotism and organizations like Young Americans for Freedom while liberals profanely protested and joined less reputable groups. “Courage To Put Country Above Color” tells this epic story and how his behind-the-scenes presence closed what I call the, ” conservative gap ” between the Reagan Administration and like minded American Blacks, most notably his friend, future Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Mr. Parker tackled the very touchy issue of exposing communist infiltration and backing of some of the New Left’s Black show pieces. This same courage was later demonstrated while assisting South African capitalists at war with Soviet-supported, popular liberation fronts. Apartheid was an absolute denial of the citizenship of Black South Africans, but handing the region over to the Soviets was a line Mr. Parker wasn’t prepared to cross. This brought him considerable heat from...

Dear Father, Dear Son

Dear Father, Dear Son

  Last week, our friend Dennis Prager talked for an entire hour with Larry Elder about his brand new book, Dear Father, Dear Son: Two Lives…Eight Hours. Elder describes among other things, the reasons he became estranged from his father, how they reconciled, what he learned from his father, and the importance of a man’s relationship with his father. Elder tells Prager, “This is the most important book I’ve ever written, even though it’s not about politics.” Listen to the interview, and then go get the book. There are important lessons to learn from what Elder writes, and we as a nation desperately need them....
