Blackout: How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape from the Democrat Plantation By: Candace Owens

 Amazing book. Reminds me of the feeing when I saw Barak Obama giving his speech at the DNC. I knew at that moment that I would be seeing Mr. Obama again in a high position. The same is true with Ms. Owens. 

She is a smart, quick and beautiful young lady. She was recently married and, at this writing is currently pregnant with their first child. Owens brings a refreshing view to the race issue in the US. I am always stunned how still, in this day and age, there are still white people who feel that somehow they can speak for the Black Community. She once slammed some white women while she was testifying in Congress and she said that she knew better than they did and said "you know what my expertise is, being black in America. I've been black in America my entire life". 

Owens tells the tale of her youth and a racial incident that turned out to be an ex boyfriend. She spoke about how those who took in the cause were there for the public portion but then cut and run. 

Owners make excellent point on BLM, how the slaves and Blacks from before embraced the nucleus family and had fathers in the home. However the LBJ great society actually encouraged black women to not have a husband and father figure to gain more money. 

She addresses victim hood and how it is offensive and should be offensive to Black people today. However it is not. She explains how the left wants to have the Black people feel that they have not reached their potentiL

Not because of their own failure, but rather outside forces that are not allowing them to succeed. She shows specific cases where black people have been able to succeed, and succeed in a grand way. 

The book is really a great read. As I stated, she is extremely intelligent and she is so quick on her feet to fireback when needed. She is always prepared with facts, numbers and statistics. I truly believe we will see this bright woman ascend to great things in this country. She would be an amazing Congresswoman or Senator and one day, I can absolutely see her in the Oval Office. It is sad how the media and the supposed "woman's groups" do not defend her more from the vicious attacks brought on by the very same they protect. Not only is she a woman, but she is a BLACK woman. 

I great read. I recommend it hole heartedly. Read it and give it to a black person to read, this is her advise, but surely I can agree with it.

Doesn't Hurt to Ask: Using the Power of Questions to Communicate, Connect, and Persuade By: Trey Gowdy

 I have always been impressed by Congressman Gowdy.  Although my political views are not really represented in the House or the Senate, I always thought Gowdy was thorough, intelligent and a pit bull.  I first I thought the book was a political book but thankfully it was not.  


The book covers the art; and I mean it as an art of persuasion.  For those who do not recognize him, Gowdy was a prosector in South Carolina and later became a Congressman for the same.  He served in Congress for eight years.  Gowdy headed many committees during his tenure.  This book describes how he learned how to effectively argue in court and how to be on the offensive side as well as the defensive side.  Although the book does touch on politics based on cases and hearings he was involved in, he almost always prefaces it with the fact that he is not passing judgment and on many occasions describes where he felt he could have done differently.  

I have already used some of the skills I learned in this book with my kids.  He uses his family life to show the reader the skills he learned.  The over theme of the book, in part is listen more than you talk.  I learned so much about the legal system as well as he pulls from the history of cases he was involved in as a prosecutor.  One of the things that registered with me was when he mentioned impeachment..... no not that impeachment, but rather the impeachment of the person, the facts or the conclusion.  He used an example about a judge that was rule a certain way 90% of the time regardless of the facts of those cases.  The judge was a respected judge and impeaching the person was going to be difficult and would not get the results he was looking for.  He instead asked the judge pointed questions and challenges, and subsequently impeached the facts on the case.

Overall, the book was great.  I recommend it to anyone that would like to improve their communication skills.

The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump By: Mary Jordan

 This book started off as I expected. An informative account about Mrs. Trump's early life. There was a tinge of animosity against Melania, but I hoped it would be spread out sparsely throughout this chapter only.  Unfortunately, I was wrong.

Soon after the chapter where Melania meets Donald Trump, the hatred for Trump and Melania by association was palpable.  Actually it was quite sad how the Author spoke about Michelle Obama's book when she wrote about how the Trumps made it "scary" for her family when Trump was talking about the Birth Certificate.  All the while she knew what we now know to be a FACT that her husband was one of the orchestrators of the fake Russia collusion investigation and allegations which fueled the vicious, non-stop attacks by the left and the media against President Trump. This shows what low class the Obama's are and how gullible those who allowed them and still allow them to get away with such things. 

Personally, I think the birth Certificate thing was a distraction for Trump. Do I think he was born in Hawaii, sure. Do I think that he used every means necessary to get an advantage of his situation, absolutely.  From what I have read, he did register in school as an international student. Ironically, the main attack on Melania is how she was useless save for Trump's name and how she benefitted from Trump. What is good for the goose, apparently is not good for the gander. 

The author brings up the "kids in cages" multiple times however fails to say the facts that Obama was the one that created those cages and that Obama himself was the one that started the practice of separating kids from their "families".  I believe this would have given her a tinge of ethical reporting.  Laura Bush spoke out against the Trumps because the Bush's were still grieving the decimation of Jeb Bush in the Republican Primary.  Why did she not speak out against the Obama's when they were doing it?

Jordan took every opportunity to go after Donald Trump especially with Mrs. Morales and Diaz that worked so many years for the Trumps.  It's funny because A. Both ladies made a living working for the Trumps and they were not forced to do so.  The ladies talked about how Trump was difficult with his clothes et al and they needed to comply, however there are countless liberal leaning famous people that share the authors perceived political beliefs that are famous for being extremely difficult such as removing all green M&Ms, certain brands of water, etc.  Hell, I did work for Matt Damon and he had special socks, combs, creams, candy, etc.  No one could use his bathroom, which I did anyhow because I do not bend a knee.  Not to mention that Morales and Diaz got paid for their interviews. 

I found that Jordan kept getting stupid insignificant details and tried to put some conspiratorial spin to it.  It seemed that Melania did not catch a break from Jordan or the rest of the anti-Trump movement.  For instances, going back to the cages, Melania was the one that spoke out against Trump and later made him change his stance yet the author nor the anti-Trumpers gave her any credit and just attacked.  I have said this before, Melania is the First Lady, whether you like her husband or hate him.  None of the magazines have put her on the cover of their magazines when she obviously puts all First Ladies to shame, even Jacki O.  It is sad.  Jordan also points out how Melania stood up for Baron during the "impeachment" hearings but then agrees with the attackers about Greta Thumberg comments after she won the Time's most whatever that award is.  Big difference though.  Thumberg put herself into the limelight by going and speaking to the UN and slamming everyone.  The reality is, she is a child and is NOT a scientist.  She and her family have made plenty of money from her appearances.  I do not care what she has been diagnosed with.  She knows nothing and makes comments about "money" while they have Herman Miller chairs in their homes worth over $2,000.00 a piece.  I am sure not many of the people who heard her "how dare you" speech live like that and take a year off of school to sail around the world.... BTW in a boat made of fiberglass and all types of material that are "harmful to the environment".  

And very apropos, was the statement about Trump not wearing a mask.  Recent news reports shows Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo walking his dogs around people without a mask, Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House opening up a boarded up beauty salon to get her hair washed and blow dried while everyone else was banned from doing so, Not to be outdone, Governor Phil Murphy of NJ caught eating in a restaurant.   

I will give you a summary of the book from the eyes of the author:

Melania is a liar.  She does not speak the languages she says.  She is a bad friend.  She does not really love Trump.  She only cares about Baron.  Anything she supports is a fake thing that is there for the purpose of helping her husband.  Her English sucks. And now she wants to win again because she loves the limelight.  

It is very sad.  I expected much more.

Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter By: Curtis Jackson (50 Cent)

 I learned a lot from this book. Jackson / $0.50 is a successful entrepreneur, rapper and TV production mogul. I am always shocked to see these folks that start off selling drugs and become successful business men and women. I guess from a perspective, drug dealing is a business, one where you need to be shrewd.

The book may come off as a little braggadocios, but the reality is, he has achieved much success and in my opinion can and should talk about it.

I was shocked to read that Jackson does not do drugs and rarely drinks. His persona is so different that the one he portrayed in his book. The one thing I have taken from this book, which echos many other books is don't have a plan B.

This book was a great read. I recommend it regardless of your music or TV genere of choice. He is a successful businessman in his own right. I have followed his musical career and I am a HUGE Power fan. I am anxiously awaiting the spin offs

A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein by: Alana Goodman and Daniel Harper

Despicable, Child Rapist Billionaire got away with his crimes.  The story goes that he killed himself, but in my opinion, he was murdered.  I can only hope that he suffered until his last breath.  The book covers some of the same materials as with some of the other Epstein books I have read, but touches on; as the sub title says "The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein."




If you do not know who Epstein was, you are probably hiding under a rock or use woke up from Cryostasis.  Epstein was a multi-billionaire with homes in Palm Beach, FL, New York, France, New Mexico and Virgin Islands.  He actually owned two islands.  These islands allowed Epstein to control the environment and bring young girls there where they were unable to leave.

The book reveals a version of the Epstein saga saying Les Wexner, the Victoria Secret mogul, was the one bankrolling Epstein's lifestyle; either overtly or covertly.  One version is that Wexner is/was a closet homosexual and Epstein had the goods on him.  I tend to not believe that Epstein would/could hold homosexuality over someone today.  Society is more accepting than ever before.  Additionally, Epstein had a cozy relationship with the Gates...... yes those Gates.  Both Epstein and the Gates have been outspoken Eugenic proponents.

Sadly, no one will ever know the truth.  I do not think Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein co-conspirator and longtime girlfriend, madam, recruiter of children will live to testify and name names.  She will meet certain death.  Her days are numbered.  


Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeff Epstein

                                                      Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeff Epstein


He wanted to inseminate women with his semen to have a bunch of kids.  Thankfully this did not happen.  Contaminating the world with little Jeff Epstein(s) would have been a really bad idea.  I truly hope they catch all those involved and the victims can find justice.  They were cheated from justice.  Whether Epstein took his life (highly unlikely) or someone had him silenced, he got off much easier than these pro girls; women today that will live with what he did to them for a lifetime.  There is a special place in hell for this man, and I hope they turned up the heat when he arrived.

I'm Your Emotional Support Animal : Navigating Our All Woke, No Joke Culture by Adam Carolla

Insanely funny but very apropos. Corolla blows the lid off of the victim society and cancel culture we are contaminated by these days. This book is filled with F-Bombs and other "four letter" words (or French). It will certainly crush the snowflakes of today. The saddest thing about this book is that he is 100% on point. There is a purity test that all have to pass in order to be a member of the new society. Apparently there is no room to evolve your thoughts, opinions or decisions. You are now forever defined by the rants of your sixteen year old self. I have evolved from being a Republican to being libertarian because I did not agree with many of the planks of the Republican Party. If this is the way we plan the future to be, not even the Purest of the pure would be eligible for a place in the new society. 



The wusification of men today will have huge effects down the line. I know in my family, I am the one willing to take the risks and lay down my life for my family. If there is a need to get a second job, to go out in the middle of a hurricane, fight to protect my loved ones, even standing in line for an entire day to get gas for our hurricane generator, that's me. My kids are learning and I take my oldest one with me. I teach them to safely handle AR style rifles, hand guns, knives, dress a deer etc. I teach them about making fire, cooking and most important the respect of women and God. These days men are more feminine than women. They gossip and rat on each other, they don't ask out girls anymore. My 14 year old told me last year "I hope she asks me to the dance". I was floored. This is not the way it is supposed to be. 

I recommend this book for anyone that is a rational person. If you believe is safe spaces, micro aggressions, culture appropriation and the drivel espoused the morons of today, move on. You will only hurt your delicate feelings.

American Crusade: Our Fight to Stay Free By: Pete Hegseth

You might be used to seeing Hegseth doing the cooky diner interviews all around the country during the 2016 election season. Or maybe if you are a Fox news watcher, you will recognize him from Fox and Friends morning show.  Either way, this man is a Harvard/Princeton.


This book is written by a man that is true to his country.  He was in the National Guard, went to Harvard and Princeton, and has done may works of charity around Veterans.  He was not a Trump supporter in the beginning. But like many other people, he saw Donald Trump for what he is; a threat to the establishment. When you see someone ruffling the feathers of both putrid parties, chances are they are doing it right.  The book delves into topics you would expect from a Conservative.  He is now a Trump supporter.  Interesting note, he was a term member of Council of Foreign Relations but quit the organization. 

He is truly a patriot and not just for what he did in the military but what he did for his fellow countrymen that returned from the military. 

It is a good book, obviously very pro-Trump so if you dislike or hate Trump, don't bother reading it.  Your eyes will bleed.  I am one of those not-so-silent majority that did not initially vote Trump, but feel he has done an amazing job.  I often wonder, if he would have had even the same level of support from the opposition as Obama did, our Country would be doing amazing.  In spite of all of the anti-Trump media (redundant statement), in spite of the fake investigations, trumped up (no-pun intended) impeachment, all other investigation, unfair treatment, et all, he was still able to make this economy thrive and do for POC what no other POTUS in my lifetime has done. 

Love the last chapter when he talks about Trump calling him on Halloween and told him "You are a fucking warrior Pete; A fucking warrior."  Love it.
