Lindbergh defeated Franklin Roosevelt by a landslide in the 1940 presidential election, fear invaded every Jewish household in America. Not only had Lindbergh, in a nationwide radio address, publicly blamed the Jews for selfishly pushing America toward a pointless war with Nazi Germany, but upon taking office as the thirty-third president of the United States, he negotiated a cordial “understanding” with Adolf Hitler, whose conquest of Europe and virulent anti-Semitic policies he appeared to accept without difficulty. What then followed in America is the historical setting for this startling new book by Pulitzer Prize–winner Philip Roth, who recounts what it was like for his Newark family — and for a million such families all over the country — during the menacing years of the Lindbergh presidency, when American citizens who happened to be Jews had every reason to expect the worst.

Sinclair Lewis's chilling 1935 bestseller is the story of Buzz Windrip, 'Professional Common Man', who promises poor, angry voters that he will make America proud and prosperous once more, but takes the country down a far darker path. As the new regime slides into authoritarianism, newspaper editor Doremus Jessup can't believe it will last - but is he right? This cautionary tale of liberal complacency in the face of populist tyranny shows it really can happen here.

Download and read online The Plot to Hack America in PDF and EPUB In April 2016, computer technicians at the Democratic National Committee discovered that someone had accessed the organization’s computer servers and conducted a theft that is best described as Watergate 2.0. In the weeks that followed, the nation’s top computer security experts discovered that the cyber thieves had helped themselves to everything: sensitive documents, emails, donor information, even voice mails. Soon after, the remainder of the Democratic Party machine, the congressional campaign, the Clinton campaign, and their friends and allies in the media were also hacked. Credit cards numbers, phone numbers, and contacts were stolen. In short order, the FBI found that more than twenty-five state election offices had their voter registration systems probed or attacked by the same hackers. Western intelligence agencies tracked the hack to Russian spy agencies and dubbed them the CYBER BEARS. The media was soon flooded with the stolen information channeled through Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. It was a massive attack on America but the Russian hacks appeared to have a singular goal—elect Donald J. Trump as president of the United States. New York Times bestselling author and career intelligence officer Malcolm Nance’s fast paced real-life spy thriller takes you from Vladimir Putin’s rise through the KGB from junior officer to spymaster-in-chief and spells out the story of how he performed the ultimate political manipulation—convincing Donald Trump to abandon seventy years of American foreign policy including the destruction of NATO, cheering the end of the European Union, allowing Russian domination of Eastern Europe, and destroying the existing global order with America at its lead. The Plot to Hack America is the thrilling true story of how Putin’s spy agency, run by the Russian billionaire class, used the promise of power and influence to cultivate Trump as well as his closest aides, the Kremlin Crew, to become unwitting assets of the Russian government. The goal? To put an end to 240 years of free and fair American democratic elections.

Download and read online Made in Israel in PDF and EPUB THE EVILS OF 9-11 REVISITED 10 years ago, on the brilliantly sunny morning of Sept. 11, 2001 mass murderers the sickest and most evil psychopaths among the human race unleashed a reign of terror that would ultimately kill nearly 3,000 innocent citizens. As Americans watched these horrors unfold on their television sets, they were subjected to an occult, magical rite that would severely traumatize them and forever transform our nation. As sirens wailed, fires burned, people screamed and television newsmen riddled their viewers with alarm, those who orchestrated this sacrificial slaughter reveled in the paranoia and carnage. As blame for these attacks was quickly placed on Osama bin Laden and 19 Muslim hijackers, the actual plotters Talmudic exterminators and their neo-con political sycophants peered from the shadows as horrified jumpers leaped to their deaths from the World Trade Center towers and splattered on New York City s streets. Shortly thereafter, these two 110-story skyscrapers were swallowed directly into the Earth by energy sources as powerful as the Sun. Ground Zero, in its original interpretation as the spot of a nuclear explosion, had been born. The monstrous aberrations responsible for these crimes against humanity mutilated and desecrated our security. Certainly 9-11 was an inside job, but it was also an outside job as well. The ravenous dogs that assaulted USS Liberty crewmembers in 1967 now unleashed without a trace of conscience their cesspool of bloodlust on America s own homeland. On that fateful morning, pandemonium ran rampant through every neighborhood. People wondered rightly so if WW III had begun? After the Pentagon our military nerve center was purportedly rendered ineffective against this onslaught, what target would be next? Television sets cast incantations and demented spells over every viewer that sat transfixed, frozen with fright. In a state of primal fear, these cabbalistic sorcerers and propagandists actually took possession of the victimized masses. At this precise moment, brainwashing, trauma programming and psychic driving would reach its height of effectiveness. More sirens, flames, controlled demolitions, hellish smoke, terror alerts on every channel and mounting death counts. The world had changed, and we could never return to where we once were. Like vermin-infected rodents carrying toxic poison in their DNA, the 9-11 architects created this Pearl Harbor grand illusion to lay a foundation for even more lies, i.e. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq where killing-field corpses would be stacked by the thousands. 9-11 Evil . . . 10 years ago the spiritually malignant blackness of this Made in Israel false-flag attack stole our family s lives and savaged our country s collective mindset. They are destroyers, vipers of an inhuman species, and we will never forget what they ve done to us.

Download and read online The Plot Against Hip Hop A Novel in PDF and EPUB "George is an ace at interlacing the real dramas of the world . . . the book's slim length and flyweight depth could make it an artifact of this particular zeitgeist in American history. Playas and haters and celebrity cameos fuel a novel that is wickedly entertaining while being frozen in time." --Kirkus Reviews "This hard-boiled tale is jazzed up with authentic street slang and name-dropping (Biggie, Mary J. Blige, Lil Wayne, and Chuck D) . . . George’s tightly packaged mystery pivots on a believable conspiracy . . . and his street cred shines in his descriptions of Harlem and Brownsville’s mean streets." --Library Journal "George is a well-known, respected hip-hop chronicler . . . Now he adds crime fiction to his resume with a carefully plotted crime novel peopled by believable characters and real-life hip-hop personalities." --Booklist "The most accomplished black music critic of his generation." --The Washington Post Book World "Perhaps one of the greatest books ever written. It has the realness of The Autobiography of Malcolm X, the warmth of The Color Purple, and the page count of Tuesdays with Morrie. It's a must-read." --Chris Rock on City Kid The Plot Against Hip Hop is a noir novel set in the world of hip hop culture. The stabbing murder of esteemed music critic Dwayne Robinson in a Soho office building is dismissed by the NYPD as a gang initiation. But his old friend, bodyguard and security expert D Hunter, suspects there are larger forces at work. D Hunter's investigation into his mentor's murder leads into a parallel history of hip hop, a place where renegade government agents, behind-the-scenes power brokers, and paranoid journalists know a truth that only a few hardcore fans suspect. This rewrite of hip hop history mixes real-life figures with characters pulled from the culture's hidden world, including Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Russell Simmons.

Download and read online Everyman in PDF and EPUB Philip Roth's new novel is a candidly intimate yet universal story of loss, regret, and stoicism. The best-selling author of The Plot Against America now turns his attention from "one family's harrowing encounter with history" (New York Times) to one man's lifelong skirmish with mortality. The fate of Roth's everyman is traced from his first shocking confrontation with death on the idyllic beaches of his childhood summers, through the family trials and professional achievements of his vigorous adulthood, and into his old age, when he is rended by observing the deterioration of his contemporaries and stalked by his own physical woes. A successful commercial artist with a New York ad agency, he is the father of two sons from a first marriage who despise him and a daughter from a second marriage who adores him. He is the beloved brother of a good man whose physical well-being comes to arouse his bitter envy, and he is the lonely ex-husband of three very different women with whom he's made a mess of marriage. In the end he is a man who has become what he does not want to be. The terrain of this powerful novel -- Roth's twenty-seventh book and the fifth to be published in the twenty-first century -- is the human body. Its subject is the common experience that terrifies us all. Everyman takes its title from an anonymous fifteenth-century allegorical play, a classic of early English drama, whose theme is the summoning of the living to death.

Marcus has fled from his hometown of Newark, New jersey, trying to escape his father's oppressive love - a love that is also a mad fear of the dangers of adult life soon to face his son.
