Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace: How We Got to Be So Hated

By Vidal, Gore

New York: Nation Books, 2002-04-10. Paperback. Good. spine creasing, edge wear; ex-library with usual markings; The United States has been engaged in what the great historian Charles A. Beard called "perpetual war for perpetual peace." The Federation of American Scientists has cataloged nearly 200 military incursions since 1945 in which the United States has been the aggressor. In a series of penetrating and alarming essays, whose centerpiece is a commentary on the events of September 11, 2001 (deemed too controversial to publish in this country until now) Gore Vidal challenges the comforting consensus following September 11th and goes back and draws connections to Timothy McVeigh's bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City. He asks were these simply the acts of "evil-doers?

The Federalist Papers: A Collection of Essays Written in Favour of the New Constitution

By Hamilton, Alexander; Jay, John; Madison, James

Coventry House Publishing, 2015-09-08. Trade Paperback. Very Good. light edge wear; The Federalist Papers are a collection of eighty-five articles and essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay in favor of ratifying the United States Constitution. First appearing in 1787 as a series of letters to New York newspapers, this collective body of work is widely considered to be among the most important historical collections of all time. Although the authors of The Federalist Papers foremost intended to influence the vote in favor of ratifying the Constitution, in Federalist No. 1 Hamilton explicitly set their debate in broader political terms. "It has been frequently remarked," he wrote, "that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force.

Treachery: How America's Friends and Foes Are Secretly Arming Our Enemies

By Gertz, Bill

New York: Crown Forum, 2004-09-07. First Edition. Hardcover. Good/Good. light edge wear to jacket & boards; ex-library with usual markings; This investigative report, by one of Washington's most deeply-sourced journalists, raises the alarm over the extent of arms sales and technology transfer to our enemies. Bill Gertz places the blame both on our allies (France, Germany, Russia) and on our rivals (China), and he says that the reluctance of our former friends to join the coalition against Iraq was based not on principle but rather on a desire for profits--profits from arms sales. While the US is pursuing a war on terror, our allies are abetting the worldwide weapons bazaar. Based on interviews with sources at the highest government levels, and on documents released to him, Gertz argues that our allies have sold huge amounts of high-tech arms to groups and states that should not have them. He provides the deep background to a series of major news stories, including the Libyan reversal and shift, Pakistan's nuclear capabilities and the harm it has caused by dispersing secrets, and Saddam Hussein's exploitation of the oil for food program of the UN. Gertz also breaks very important stories such as an al Qaeda arms connection to China. He assesses the true state of American security, finding glaring weaknesses, and he sees our most up-to-date weapons falling into the hands of others to be used against us.

The Devil We Know: Dealing with the New Iranian Superpower

By Baer, Robert

New York: Broadway Books, 2009-08-18. Paperback. Very Good. light edge wear; Over the past thirty years, while the United States has turned either a blind or dismissive eye, Iran has emerged as a nation every bit as capable of altering America's destiny as traditional superpowers Russia and China. Indeed, one of this book's central arguments is that, in some ways, Iran's grip on America's future is even tighter. As ex-CIA operative Robert Baer masterfully shows, Iran has maneuvered itself into the elite superpower ranks by exploiting Americans' false perceptions of what Iran is--by letting us believe it is a country run by scowling religious fanatics, too preoccupied with theocratic jostling and terrorist agendas to strengthen its political and economic foundations. The reality is much more frightening--and yet contained in the potential catastrophe is an implicit political response that, if we're bold enough to adopt it, could avert disaster.

Look What Happened While You Were Sleeping

By A Friend of Medjugorje

Sterrett, AL: Saint James Publishing, 2007-04-16. Paperback. Good. edge wear, some scuffing, light creases; After the French and Indian War (1763), the King of England disallowed an act made by the Colony of Virginia's assembly. In a lawsuit, a young lawyer by the name of Patrick Henry declared that the king was a tyrant and that by the act of disallowance, the king forfeited his right to have the colonists remain obedient to him. If the beginning steps that led to the formation of our nation started from such actions, which by comparison to our situation today, was much less grievous, how much more justified would citizens be in taking similar actions in our present situation? Patrick Henry's statement called for disallowing the legitimacy of the king to govern over them. What legitimacy, therefore, should we consider our government today to have that allows the formation of laws, which disallows natural law? Laws that take from citizens their private property, permit abortion and accept unnatural lifestyles. Laws against natural law are laws without legitimacy. We must ask the question, has the present system of electing and governing betrayed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution? If it has, then are we not being led to the same conclusion as Patrick Henry????????????that the ruling government over us has made itself illegitimate? Has the present form of government hi-jacked our legitimate Declaration and Constitutional, Republic form of government? If we answer yes, then how will we respond? Will we follow the witness of our Forefathers who recognized that the king had forfeited the right to govern and therefore, forfeited the right to have the people remain obedient to him? Has the present form of government, which is acting against our republic and the will of the people it is suppose to represent, forfeited the right to govern? At what point do the words declared in the Declaration, "It is their right, it is their duty to throw off such government and provide new guards for their future security" play in against the present form of government? The present form of governing is not fulfilling the dreams our Forefathers had. We are called to fulfill those dreams. The time is ripe. The time is now.

The Strange Death of President Harding

By Means, Gaston B

New York: Guild Publishing, 1930. Hardcover. Good/No Jacket. edge wear to boards and spine tips; front hinge cracked, top of ffep cut away; From the diaries of Gaston B. Means and his Department of Justice Investigation, comes the insider story on Harding's death as told to Thacker. Means, a private detective, was hired by Mrs. Harding to get information on the President and Nan Britton. Means asserts that Harding was poisoned as a result of the Teapot Dome scandal. In the spring of 1923, Harding was visibly distraught at what he regarded as the betrayal of his friends who were taking advantage of his kindliness and lax administration. He sought escape from Washington in mid-June by taking a trip to Alaska with his wife and a large entourage. On his way home at the end of July, the president complained of abdominal pain, but he seemed to rally as he rested at a San Francisco hotel. On the evening of August 2, however, as his wife read to him from a magazine, Harding suddenly died from either a heart attack or stroke. This book should definitely be on the list of must-reads for anyone interested in conspiracy theories.

State of Denial: Bush at War, Part III

By Woodward, Bob

New York: Simon & Schuster, 2006-09-30. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. light edge wear to boards and jacket; "Insurgents and terrorists retain the resources and capabilities to sustain and even increase current level of violence through the next year." This was the secret Pentagon assessment sent to the White House in May 2006. The forecast of a more violent 2007 in Iraq contradicted the repeated optimistic statements of President Bush, including one, two days earlier, when he said we were at a "turning point" that history would mark as the time "the forces of terror began their long retreat."State of Denial examines how the Bush administration avoided telling the truth about Iraq to the public, to Congress, and often to themselves. Two days after the May report, the Pentagon told Congress, in a report required by law, that the "appeal and motivation for continued violent action will begin to wane in early 2007.
