Here at CPAC—the premiere conference and networking event of the conservative movement, which I’ll be attending for the next two days—most things are free. The NRA beer koozie? Free. An “I’m Ready For Freedom, Not Free Stuff” poster? You guessed it—free. A gold-plated, life-size pin of a fetus’s feet? Free, and I took two. But the conference is selling one thing for money: Books.

It’s not a coincidence. CPAC—and the concerned conservative movement in general—have long provided a fertile environment for hucksters peddling insane theories. So naturally, some of these books are good, and most of them are totally nuts.

With that in mind, here are all the books the conservacons are subscribing to this week at the Conservative Book Club—plus, bonus reader reviews!

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Real American Heroes by Brion McClanahan

Amazon reader reviews:

I’ve Always been a History Buff, so I enjoy reading as many books on this topic as possible. Yet there seems to be a lot of Misinformation being written of late; as if it were indeed, Fact. Facts remain Facts; they don’t rely on misconceptions, or on one’s own feelings, or beliefs. This book reminds us of the True History, whether it’s “proper” or not. If you can face the Truth, it’s a Must Read!- Leslie

I purchased 2 of these books and I’m thinking that I didn’t order enough. Very informational, will keep one for myself and give the others to my kids for the grandkids. The grandkids need the truth to offset the lies or outright omission of our American Heroes. - M. Fabian

*you may wish to steer your younger children away from the section on the Kennedys which references their sexual peccadilloes (as does the Roosevelt chapter)and makes note of Ted Kennedy’s “offshore drilling”. - DeadDVDPLAYER

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution by Kevin R.C. Gutzman

Amazon reader reviews:

After reading this excellent book, you might find yourself filled with a desire to see the Supreme Court building razed to the ground. However, the only real solution to the problem of judicial (and federal) usurpation is through the threat of secession. Jefferson warned that if the federal government was made the final judge of its own powers that the federal government, and not the constitution, would be the supreme law of the land. Jefferson was right. The Declaration of Independence explains how to fix things... but in the meantime a good initial step in righting the ship (other than repealing the 16th and 17th amendments) would be to elect Dr. Ron Paul as President. Maybe Dr. Gutzman should run as his Vice-President? - ZXZXZX

I have taken classes in Constitutional Law as an undergraduate and now in law school, and they don’t teach us any of this! - James M. Watson

Amazingly easy to understand and extremely educational. A must read for anyone interested in how the colonies came together but made sure they would also be separate where it counted. Strictly my opinion, but it is also a must read for the Supreme Court. Looks like they need a refresher course these days. - word and song

Give Me Liberty or Give Me Obamacare by Michael Ramirez, with a foreword by Dick Cheney and afterword by Rush Limbaugh

Amazon reader reviews:

It was a gift. He liked it - Debra Rae

Michael Ramirez is too liberal for my taste — he has cartoons in here suggesting the fear that obama is going to tear up the constitution and confiscate all the guns is a fairy tale, that raising taxes will get the engine of the economy back on track, and that Dubya was an incompetent baby! It’s foolish, there’s not a good cartoon in here. - Jordan Fouts

Mr. Ramierez is without peer as a political cartoonist. His new book perfectly chronicles the progression of President Obama’s years in office. And the trail of destruction he leaves behind. A ripping good book. - Alvin J. Knowlton

Goldwater: The Man Who Made a Revolution by Lee Edwards

Amazon reader reviews:

Lee Edwards has done a Scholarly look into Barry Morris Goldwater. I very Much like Mr.Goldwater Aka Mr.Conservative’s Ideas Circa 1964 and before that, I certainly Don’t like the Man’s Ideas After that, Whether it’s his stance On those serving in the Miltary who happen to like the samesex to Abortion(His wife’s Involvment with Planned Parenthood) and I certainly Don’t like His Jealousy of Reagan whatever the reason. Many of these things came to light in this book and how Goldwater would Flip Flop,His Double Standard regarding Spiro Agnew(His Friend) and Nixon(He never got close to Nixon and called him A Liar), To His Support Of Everybody Republican No Matter if they were Eastern Elitist Liberals(Rockerfeller) to His Support Of Ford Over Reagan.From Conservative Staunch Anti-Communist(My sort of thing) to Radical Libertarian(Libertarianism is Irrevelant for me).

These Flaws like everyone who has flaws should not deter any fellow Conservative From Reading the book but Beware anyone who Likes A Conservative when they are Liberal those are the Worst Type Of Conservatives. - Jose Lopez

Interesting man dumb book - Tom Munro

Assault and Flattery: The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women by Katie Pavlich

Amazon reader reviews:

I think it is funny that EVERY book gets advanced copies out for review and the liberal machine is soooo scared that they troll these pages to pull down review star ratings. I’ve never written a review that wasn’t actually a review before but because the liberals are ALREADY trolling this page I thought I’d add my 2 cents. Katie Pavlich is an amazing woman and you libs are trying to keep her down. Funny you claim “ lies” and do exactly what she is talking about. Typical. Way to go Katie, can’t wait to read it ! - Kimberly Lesser

Heard her speak a few hours ago on the Hugh Hewitt show. She is like my two daughters and four year-old granddaughter. They will not put up with manipulating insecure men.

Hugh said she created the perfect title. An insecure male will flatter and lie then stick the hook in. She is saying don’t connect to any man or organization that conceals their intensions.

The only women that give me discomfort is the rare self-centered woman. They lie and manipulate like a man. It is encouraging to see so many women now recognizing self-centered politicians.

Rarely do I watch TV so I didn’t remember her from fast & furious. However I’m delighted to be so lucky to listen to her. Katie comes to us just as we lost Margret Thatcher. - Dr. Don

Read it ladies. Learn why you should not be a “vagina voter” and follow the pack. - Alexander C

Fast and Furious: Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and the Shameless Coverup by Katie Pavlich

Amazon reader reviews:

Very good book, most importantly, it helped me engage my wife and my daughter in being politically aware. They want me to get them more books like it... I’m very happy to see more of this in their hands and less junk fiction. - Brendan Hanley


This is a well-written book based on some in-depth research about a failed government program that was a total embarrassment to the Obama administration. The left does not like this book and usually sites reasons like the author is cute so she can’t be smart. I guess that’s why they think people like Rachel Maddow so smart. - Steve B

Absolutely in excellent shape. Will buy books all day long in this condition. Much better shape than expected. Excellent selections to choose from. - Charles W Cromer Jr

Unlikeable: The Problem With Hillary by Edward Klein

Amazon reader reviews:

And the elephant in the room that bolsters Klein’s credibility - is that Klein himself, a self-admitted JFK fan and a former editor at Newsweek, Vanity Fair and the New York Times Magazine - has never been successfully sued for libel - nor have any of his books been successfully discredited as being loaded with patent lies. If untrue, there would be more than enough to warrant the Clintons suing Klein and his publishers for libel. But it hasn’t happened (yet), dating back to Klein’s first book about Hillary in 2005. (In Journalism 101 we’re taught that Truth is the best defense against libel - and that public figures like Hillary must prove malice - AND - that blatant untruths have been printed which have caused irreparable harm.) - David Kusumoto


When you learn the facts about Hillary, it is amazing she isn’t in jail right now. She is a perpetual liar but has the media to cover up her crimes, coverups, treason, and lies over the years. - Amazon Customer


A Time for Truth by Ted Cruz

Amazon reader reviews:

Cruz proves he is more than Green Eggs and Ham, he is the right man to lead Uncle Sam. - Clare Thomeer

I normally don’t judge books by their covers, but I dont think i’m going to buy this one because Ted Cruz’s face is on it. - Chad Zisler

The book is easy to read, no grammatical errors, very enlightening that he was not a perfect child. It gives hope to all parents who have children not walking the straight line. - gmafaye

it’s a book - Chris Taylor

American Dreams by Marco Rubio

Amazon reader reviews:

I wanted to learn more about Senator Rubio’s positions. I was pleasantly surprised that he spent much of the book talking about family values and his own Christian beliefs - kwt

Boring. Goes on and on about using government taxes to incentivize or deincentivize how he thinks you should live. Also reveals he is P.C. on homosexual unions, rather than acting on belief. He cites statistics rather than moral law. - ChicagoBookReaderMan

Marco Rubio is a young man with a dream. People seem to think his ideas are fairy tails. I remember another young man who was the president of the USA who had good ideas and made good on those ideas. His presidency was called Camelot. - Linny

Killing Reagan by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard

Amazon reader reviews:

As an “O’Reilly Factor” and “Killing…” books fan, I was looking forward to the latest entry of the series that has somewhat reignited a degree of historic interest among many in the “historically-challenged” US population. By spotlighting one of our greatest presidents – and written by a seemingly objective conservative pundit who I believed would ensure fair treatment – I assumed it would stand as a credible addition to the voluminous scholarship on President Reagan.

As difficult as this is to write, I can only say that I was wrong. To my surprise and disappointment, it is perhaps the most factually distorted, negatively skewed, and misleading portrayal I have read on one of our greatest and most influential presidents. - Mark E. Quartullo

Great FOREVER!! and I mean President Ronald Regan! We need him BACK! - Viera Lima

Good so far - I have not finished reading it. - Barbara

What Women Really Want by Ann-Marie Murrell, Morgan Brittany and Dr. Gina Loudon

Amazon reader reviews:

It is time to say, “that is NOT okay” for data mining consultants and former hedge fund analysts (who’ve never taught a class in their lives) to write the curriculum for our nation’s schools. It is NOT okay for veterans to wait for medical treatment to meet cost containment bonuses. It is NOT okay to label acts of terrorism “workplace violence” or “JV.” - Leslie Phaneuf

As a young woman I am a target for the feminist-loving mainstream media and as someone who has always stood for everything that they oppose, I have made myself into an outsider. This book addresses just that and let me know that I am not alone. The authors address the lies of the liberal elite and expose the corruption that permeates the mainstream media who cover them up—or in some cases justify them. Most important, however is the message that being a successful woman and being a woman of God are not mutually exclusive. You can empower yourself and other women without emasculating men and by doing what God intended you to do—be a woman—and no, not in the “barefoot and pregnant” sort of way. - Jane Elizabeth

The best book one could read other than the Bible itself. For these ladies hold nothing back in rebuking the claims of others. They’re open and honest about themselves which only adds to the credibility of their integrity...

I’ve since purchased additional copies and given them as gifts, a gift that keeps on giving in more ways than meets the eye. Hat-Tip to all 3 Ladies for your courage and efforts in the good fight!!! - Chris Babb

American Government and U.S. Constitution: The 5000 Year Leap by by W. Cleon Skousen

Amazon reader reviews:

As a member of Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society and someone who considers themselves well read and current on our nation’s politics, this book, The 5000 Year Leap is the absolute best. If you wish to understand the founding of America. If you wish to learn how the founders wrestled with the issues. If you want to know whether or not America is really a unique and great nation, not merely in the world today, but throughout all of human history. If you are troubled by our current day’s politics and wonder just how closely our leaders today, regardless of political stripe, remain true to our founding principles. If you have wondered about any of this, you need read only one book for your answer. READ THE 5000 YEAR LEAP!! I promise you will come away with a renewed sense of America and great hope for our continuing success as a nation. - A. Codispoti

Reading all the negative comments, it is clear that those who are unsatisfied are simply against Christianity and use their anti Christian philosophy to ignore the history. To me, something either is or it isn’t. What motivated Mao or Lenin or Hitler which has nothing to do with Christ, should not and will not restrict me from learning and understanding their motives. While these evil people did great things on their own, the true history of the United States and what those did with their deep understanding of history...especially the bible and the history behind that and their faith is unparalleled by what anyone else as a group of men did for the betterment of their people and the world. There is something in that, something powerful. We are not talking just about one man who changed the world, but a group of men with a certain belief. - Ben Franklin

Recommended by Glen Beck... Worthwhile - Amazon Customer

Obamanomics: How Barack Obama Is Bankrupting You and Enriching His Wall Street Friends, Corporate Lobbyists, and Union Bosses by Timothy P. Carney

Amazon reader reviews:

I don’t think I’m exaggerating to say that this is the most important book written on politics in recent times. - Jeffersonian Liberal

If after reading this book, you aren’t calling the president “Showbama” then you’re probably related to him! This book takes the mask off, and it’s NOT pretty. - kalm77

I read a fairly large amount of material critical to President Obama, but this book still had lots of news to me. - HVeinott

Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine by Daniel Halper

Amazon reader reviews:

They are scrum bags!! - Lorraine Komatsubara

Thvtuivfh - robert tyson

Eight yeas of torment was enough. Eight years of being lied to was enough. Do America a favor and just go away. Hollywood Hillary and cuckhold Bill along with their band of 1%ers are totally out of touch with the people they governn. Only devout Koolaid drinkers are blind the pair’s narcissistic, arrogant supercilous cold-heartedness. - Philip Lee Smith


Hands Off My Gun by Dana Loesch

Amazon reader reviews:

This book is a must read for our Emperor in Chief Obama especially in his resolve to allow ISIS into our American nation which really frightens me. - Nicholas Hammer

Great perspective from an inspirational patriot! Dana brings clarity to ambiguity on gun related issues is an interesting and engaging way! Couldn’t put it down! The audio version is great as well. Cuomo and Obama would do well to read this book! - Amazon Customer

Haven’t read all of it yet but I am a law abiding gun owner and NO ONE will take my guns. - Dave

Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again by Donald Trump

Amazon reader reviews:

great book, he is really not as bad as they say - Amazon Customer

This was purchased as a gag gift so I really have no opinion. - Patricia Moore

If the man in that book is truly the man running, then he might not be as bad as he seems. In fact, he could be a great President. But, I do still have my doubts... For one, I don’t think he really wrote that book. I think he had a ghost writer do most of it, and it was compiled from various campaign speeches, a few phone calls, etc. Now, I don’t blame him for that. He’s clearly a very busy man. And ghost writing is common for celebrities. But, it does make me wonder if the book is more of a PR piece than a real look at the man himself. - David Risley

WOW! Just Wow! What an incredible book! This is a must read and should be required reading in all colleges!- STEVEN PRIVITOR

Trump: The Art of the Deal by Donald Trump

Amazon reader reviews:

On a recent visit to several multi-millionaire’s house, I discovered that many of them have The Art of The Deal on their bookshelf. Whether its sheer coincidence or not, Trump provided inspiration which successful business people needed to fight the battle. - A customer

I don’t have a lot of time to read but I love reading Turmp. I have looked back at some of the houses and cars i have bought and, in hind sight, I could have made some much better deals. Mr. Trump also shares some of his private life, like vetting out private schools for his, then, 6 year old daughter, Ivanka. - JED

I got some Big Ideas from this book. - Mark Myers

Time to Get Tough: Make America Great Again by Donald Trump

Amazon reader reviews:

One of the most impressive features of the book is the 15 pages of endnotes it contains. Again, because I actually READ the book (unlike the little liberal 1-star brigade), I will give you the exact amount of endnotes, which is a jaw dropping 243 sources found on pages 193-207. - FSU2000

I wish the Apprentice was still on, because it was a great show. I wish he would explain why he left it. He could have run for President and still had that show. That would be real leadership! I especially liked Celebrity Apprentice. I also wish Joan Rivers was alive because she was an amazing comic, truly gifted, quick witted, and great at improvisation. I think she would have been a good president. I know Joan and Mr. Trump fought a lot, but they made up before her death. Why don’t comedians ever run for President? I think Shimp Howard would have made a great president, but not so much Larry or Curly. Maybe Moe, though he was a bit authoritarian and probably could not have pulled off that bipartisan thing that contemporary political scientists believe is now lacking. Don Rickles would be able to deal with Putin-no problem. Jerry Lewis as Vice President might be helpful, especially in dealing with our French allies, where his comic genius is so greatly appreciated. I also think Eddie Van Halen might be a good president, but not David Lee Roth. On the other hand, Eddie is not a natural born citizen. - Bill McCown

I really don’t like our president at all. And just thinking of Mrs. Clinton being elected makes me throw up LITTERALY. Corrupted woman and Human being like her husband. I feel sorry X her, and her family. Obama’s as well. There will be a justice for them one day. I hope they truly realize before too late. You know HELL does exists.

Obama did put this country to the toilet and Hilary will flush it. She had no soul in my opinion. It’s all about her and her power. Who can screw the most. Us, decent people, as well. My American Dream has really been crushed, and I truly trust Mr. Trump. He will reinstate all my beliefs and what this great country is all about.

I have no other Hope pretty much, as a woman and American citizen. - antonietta bonfitto

A Choice Not an Echo: The Inside Story of How American Presidents Are Chosen by Phyllis Schlafly

Amazon reader reviews:

Phylis Schafly is sort of an Ann Coulter without the wit, humor, accuracy, intelligence, and engaging personality. This book might be of value if you have a table with a short leg that needs shoring up. Otherwise I’d pass. - Thomas Mcnaughton

Phyllis Schlafly’s book is a must read for those who believe feminists are nuts. A wonderful book. - Jeffrey Wozniak

GRADE : C+ - Orrin C. Judd

The Communist by Paul Kengor

Amazon reader reviews:

How many people have wondered about the true identity of the Wizard of Oz that is feeding Obama’s teleprompter while hidden from view behind a curtain?

Finally, a possible answer to that riddle has been discovered and documented by Paul Kengor in his new biography of Frank Marshall Davis. Who the heck is Frank Marshall Davis and why hasn’t his identity and importance to Barack Obama been reported and analyzed by the media? - James R. Holland

How many of you out there had ever even heard of Frank Marshall Davis? For the past dozen years I have been reading one non-fiction book per week and to the best of my knowledge I have never even come across his name. - Paul Tognetti

Gives you a lot of insight into Obama’s actions and attitudes. This is the story of Frank Marshall Davis, an avowed Communist, who was very instrumental in influencing young Barak’s world views. There are some who believe he is Barak’s “real father”. - Frankie1429

The book confirmed a lot of what I already thought. - Joseph D. Anderson Jr.

Suicide Pact by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano with foreward by Rand Paul

Amazon reader reviews:

Judge Napolitano is the most knowledgeable person on the Constitution that’s willing to tell the truth about it PERIOD!Actually Ron Paul,Tom Woods,Lew Rockwell echo the same truths in similar books. - James D. Day

My father liked this book - Mike

Exactly as ordered, book came with a cut across the cover. Great gift turned sour. - Jeremy Higgins

I was already aware of both the historical and the current events reviewed in the book, so there was really little new to me. - James H. Meyer

America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder by Bret Stephens

Amazon reader reviews:

Everyone should read this starting with Obama and the rest of his administration.

Kay’s out how unstable the world really is and the United States is the only thing keeping it as stable as it is. The world is full of evil. Our job is to snuff that evil out - Doktor

Loved the beginning of the book. But then the author goes into a fantasy scenario as to what America will look like after certain hypothetical events occur. Had to stop reading. - papaZ

did i buy ben steins book - harry shearer

Brilliant!!! Wake up America!! - Stuart

Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage by Paul Kengor, Ph.D.

Amazon reader reviews:

Those advocating Special Rights for the Perverse Sexual Deviants at the expense of the time tested, time honored and time proven institution of traditional marriage between one man and one woman. Will soon reap the Dark Horrors of that which they have sewn and will truly know the Dark, Vile, Evil, Destructive, Despairing, Utopian Hell they have unleashed on humanity and their children. - S. Hisel

This book kept my interest from beginning to end. The homosexual “marriage” movement and its historic ties to communism are very interesting. - V. J. Guzman

Scary to think how the left has been planning to impose their believes for a long time. Taking down the natural family and attacking religion in the process of “transforming America,” as Barack Obama once said he was going to do. And in this, the President did not lie. - Enrique J.Canton

Millennials have been the biggest cheerleaders of the gay movement, but I’m sure most have no clue just where this movement came from and the real motivation behind it all. Takedown is a catalyst for discussion, but it is also a catalyst for strengthening family connections. It is an enlightening tool, and if it affects you the way it does me, it will make you determined that the Progressives and Communists won’t succeed in their ultimate goal of taking down the family – at least not your own family. - Evangeline

Con Job: How Democrats Gave Us Crime, Sanctuary Cities, Abortion Profiteering and Racial Division by Crystal Wright

Amazon reader reviews:

In 12 chapters she demonstrates how D’s encourage crime, promote mob violence, create hopeless slums, encourage illegal immigration, kill jobs for legal residents–particularly blacks, provide sanctuary cities that encourage crime (including murder), carry on the eugenicist tradition of Margaret Sanger, butcher born and unborn babies (particularly black babies), damage and kill mothers, discourage family formation, divide Americans by skin color and every possible other characteristic, carry forward the bigotry and low expectations of a plantation society, and maintain a level of corruption that demonstrates their interest is only power and money. - Donald N. Anderson

They really nail the Liberals - J. Palmer

I could NOT put this book down! Not only is it a bonafide page turner that is packed with facts, the research shows how Democrats don’t actually care about their voters but build party loyalty by promising outlandish free “stuff” to the blacks and the poor including abortions to women - Elizabeth

Who Killed the American Family? by Phyllis Schlafly

Amazon reader reviews:

Hard to put down, had to read it twice to get all the golden nuggets out of it. - C. Yerton


Phyllis is an American no Global icon and yet she is not in the history books in schools (or is rarely discussed in universities that are not right wing). This woman’s character is something to take notice of. If people don’t step up and put ill informed weaker people in their place.... their families and environments will be threatened in dangerous ways.

Look forward to more school shootings, record high obesity rates, “rapings”, and unnecessary b.s. because the average woman MESSED UP HUGE. It’s the women’s priority and human (whether spiritual or not) responsibility to set the tone in the family unit. The war on men can be stopped by women self reflecting and starting to live correctly. OR men can stop paying attention to whores that can’t cook or clean...- Miriam Steinberg

Schlafly approaches but does not conclude, as I have for some time, that the most fundamental cause of family deterioration is mankind’s removal of itself from “nature” by the change of human sexuality into an excretory act rather than consistent with reproduction - Samuel A. Nigro

This book puts the shoes on feet they fit. - Old Philosopher

America: Imagine a World Without Her by Dinesh D’Souza

Amazon reader reviews:

Let’s get it right out of the way. While his critics will use his legal troubles against him, the arguments and evidence in this book (and the movie) should stand on their own. - Craig Matteson

I found it interesting that it was written by an Indian-American. Usually you get some white guy going on and on. - Robert Sparrenberger


Exccellent read. Clear, concise accurate (I checked). - Mac

Stealing America: What My Experience With Criminal Gangs Taught Me About Obama, Hillary and the Democratic Party by Dinesh D’Souza

Amazon reader reviews:

I have spent the past 30 years of my adult life trying to understand what motivates the Left. Thanks to Dinesh D’Souza’s revelations gleaned from his eight-month confinement in a San Diego facility, the fog has lifted. - Lakeside

Wish the main stream media would pay attention, but tooooooo liberal, tooooooo biased. No balance in reporting, should be called editorials. - Gary F. Adams

Thank God that I’m a Christian and never give up hope as this book can be disheartening. I have not finished it yet as I took a break from it. - MDY

I’m sorry I wasted my time in this book and wonder if I can go get a refund back at the warehouse. - Mama of four

No Higher Power: Obama’s War on Religious Freedom by Phyllis Schlafly

Amazon reader reviews:

Enough to make you puke! - Sally Leistner

This book describes this EVIL MUSLIM in great detail. - Charlie

Obama is not a christian, he is not a muslim, he is not anything. He is not an atheist or agnostic either, Obama’s religion is himself. He sees himself in the place of God. It won’t be long before we are forced to worship the government and any worship of God will be outlawed. We must do all we can to stop this before it is too late. The point is that there is still time and we must take advantage of that time. - BDJ

We had received most of the contents of the book be watching FOX NEWS. The man disturbs us. - M Bakken

They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It by Brigitte Gabriel

Amazon reader reviews:

Awesome book. You will know that this women is awake and aware of the problem. I think Gabriel was one of Gods best soldiers. (Her last name) This person is a true woman of God. The God of the Nazarenes. I admire her courage. For evil to triumph, good does nothing. This woman is all Good - RattyRat

A must read if you hope to have any understanding of why Muslims must be removed from America and beyond. - Veronica Deevers

I heard about the things happening right under the noses of sleeping neighbors and friends. Had to read for myself. This is a clarion call. Do something and we are shown what to do. Let’s do it. - Joan L. Finger

Great book, a must read to understand the threat of Islam and how to stop them from their violent dream of world conquest and domination. I paid a little extra so I could hear her words read to me like she was in the room teaching me. - Truthseeker

Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America by Brigitte Gabriel

Amazon reader reviews:

Look what happened to Jimmy Carter when he started receiving large grants from the Arabs, he lost his objectivity and he became a mouth piece for them. Sad! - Paul Beckman

I have been increasingly uncomfortable with growing numbers of Muslims in my community that seem to not want to be part of us. Also I’ve grown more impatient with the endless pc talk in the media. Ms. Gabriel has educated me and answered many questions. Although written 10 yrs ago the truth is only ‘more so’ now. Islamic State in Iraq. Obama and the entire democratic party disrespecting Israel’s president. a nuclear treaty with Iran. What the hell is going on? - Geology Maven

I bought 12 to give to my friends. Subject is very informative. However, the author describes herself too much. I did not finish the book because of this. I didn’t buy the book to learn of the author. - reflexiones

A VERY SCAREY must read by an articulate well-informed author. This should be REQUIRED reading for high school and above! - Jeter E. Bentley, Jr.

A Battle For the Soul of Islam: An American Muslim Patriot’s Fight to Save His Faith by Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser

Amazon reader reviews:

A reasonable Muslim American. - Roger

Jasser is a personal friend as well as my physician so I KNOW he is a man of integrity and vast knowledge and his thoughts come from an historic understanding of the Middle East historical problems. This man is highly respected in Phoenix, AZ where he was elected President of the AZ Medical Association. - Susan C. ONEAL

I didn’t like this one. It was not what I’d hoped; just seemed to me to be a guy writing a story about how much better he is than everyone around him. Not as much on the battle for Islam as there is on what a splendid fellow the author is. - John Stanton

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades by Robert Spencer

Amazon reader reviews:

I am acquainted with some American Muslims who would argue against this, but I wonder if they aren’t plagued by their own bias. After all, who wants to think badly of their own religion and/or ethnic ancestors? I was shocked to learn that many non-Arab Muslims have not actually read (don’t understand) their own holy book, that they merely recite passages from it in the original Arabic. - S. A. Blum

I am NOT, nor ever will be, a Muslim. Just want to know what they REALLY believe and to be prepared. - Bruce R. Booker (Consignment)

After spending much time reading as much of Robert Spencer’s articles/books as I can, I must say that he is somewhat obsessed with Muslim/Islam culture and activities. - Marilyn Hewlett

It gave me understanding why, when I (naively) tried to learn more about Islam, I was snubbed by a Muslim who portrayed himself as a friend. In fact his demeanor changed from one of light business acquaintance to one of pure and distant business matter. He did not answer my inquiry, nor even entertain a later discussion. His smile changed to a restrained grimace. Now I realize as a general rule there is no room for a ‘light’ discussion of Islam with a non-Muslim. - Jim

The Complete Infidel’s Guide to ISIS by Robert Spencer

Amazon reader reviews:

if you read this book and your not scared—check your pulse—you may not have one !! - Pathfinder

nice - Angela Neath

This is a great book with a lot of factual back up. Should be read by all westerners. How can our government be so dumb, I know that’s a dumb question. - John J.

So good that free speech is still alive why is it that any valid critic of islam is labeled a “racist”? What “RACE” is islam? its just a death cult so bow your heads you handwringing bleeding heart leftist and wait for it to be separated from your body by your new muslim friends - Mr. M. F. Whyte

ISIS Exposed: Beheadings, Slavery, and the Hellish Reality of Radical Islam by Erick Stakelbeck

Amazon reader reviews:

FOX already covered all stories in book! REPETE of headlines! IN MY OPINION... - PDM Semper Fi

This book is an expose on the way ISIS operates, and why. Very scary. Americans should be paying close attention, and getting a very close relationship with Jesus Christ. America needs to know what god ISIS REALLY worships. It is not our God. - Darlene Stroschein

Yes, it is pretty well-written and informative, but the author comes across as seriously biased and unprofessional. For instance, instead of just criticizing Obama or juxtaposing the nature of the Islamic threat w/ Obama’s lack of action (the professional route), he calls Obama “Imam Obama” and his decisions are “fatwas”. - Gryphon50

Erick Stakelbeck is a Christian man who understands prophecy and told the truth of what is to come because of ISIS and the middle East.

Satan is the leader in all of the uprisings we are seeing and it is just the beginning. When God calls His people home the wrath of God will come down on all of mankind like they have never seen. Erick understands the Evil one’s plans and is writing to warn people of what is to come.

Loved the book! - Esther Plaggemars

Overcoming Obamacare by Phillip Klein

Amazon reader reviews:

A perfect book title to prominently display in the office of my solo, out–patient psychiatric private practice. - Dale B Mortimer, M.D.

Obamacare upped our family’s premium on our high deductible HSA plan from $620 per month in 2014 to $2,190 per month in 2015. Mr. Klein’s thoughtful and well-researched work gives Conservatives excellent options to consider. - Matthew H. Booher

Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich by Peter Schweizer (Editor’s Pick!)

Amazon reader reviews:

I believe America’s last hope is for Almighty God to intervene. He is the Supreme Judge of the Universe. I pray He moves on the hearts and minds of our FBI and Justice Department to indict HRC for her negligent mishandling of classified information. She cannot be trusted to protect the United States of America from foreign aggressors and Islamic attacks. We’ve seen the damage 8 years of Democrat/Socialist governing policies have caused. - Charles J. Patricoff

I believe this family are swingers and it does not matter what either of them do separately or together. - Gail Conway

I like Peter Schweizer’s books but find myself wondering if the facts are true. How can one ever believe what they read these days. I may be terribly naive but find it difficult to think the Clintons are such crooks. - Kathy

Good book. About the worlds biggest Crooks, Lyres and Whores. - Steve E. Hendry

End of Discussion: How the Left’s Outrage Industry Shuts Down Debate, Manipulates Voters, and Makes America Less Free by Marty Katherine Ham and Guy Benson (Editor’s Pick!)

Amazon reader reviews:

I purchased this book to support Mary Katherine Hamm after the tragic loss of her husband. I like to listen to her on Fox News and this book is relevant in today’s political climate. - Stephanie

Reading reviews to help with my decision to purchase. Can’t believe the pages upon pages of written text by liberals. Perhaps they believe they are in a debate with the author who is a TV conservative commentator? Or maybe a wanna be NY Times columnist? - Bette Netsch

Jargon is over the heads of most senior readers - Thomas P. Barton

Defines and confirms the evil of Political Correctness and the Marxist Democratic Party. - john f carney

The Good News Is... by Dana Perino

Amazon reader reviews:

A wonderful lady and a wonderful book. To the idiot giving 1 star and going on s political tirade....get a life. When have you travelled to Africa to help needy? Never huh? Then stand aside.- Charles R. Krueger

Dana and myself have so much in common just in life, that I never knew before reading this book. I mean, how many grandma’s used Jergen’s Rose MIlk Lotion back in the day; that is one of the memories I have of my grandma too. - Lisa Keys

Got boring at about the middle - JoAnn Goodson

Haven’t started this book yet as I have a couple books I received as Christmas presents to read first. - William W.

A Nefarious Plot by Steve Deace

Amazon reader reviews:

One way you know a spirit inspired book is how it pulls you more to Jesus. - amadin

When I first read these chapters as Steve wrote them and I helped edit, it felt at times like I was holding the script for Star Wars way back in 1976 before the movie came out and changed things forever. This story combines history and creative fiction in a profound way that will take you to the edge and beyond. - Amazon Customer

I cannot say that this book is good, because it’s not. It’s not a good message, but I fear that it IS true. This book is medicine for a sick culture; unfortunately it is chemotherapy. Do we have enough time for the medicine to work or does the American culture die from within first. This book is a call to believers to remember where our hope lies and to recognize that our battle is not of this world. 100% worth the read. Thanks Steve. PS Sorry about the SC primary this week we tried but failed. JW - Catherine Wofford

“We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against the spiritual forces of evil” (Eph 6:12). This book reminds us of who is the real enemy. The enemy is not the Democrats or the lying Republicans, but the forces of evil that influence those “bags of meat”. - Justin D. McGillis

Last Act the Final Years and Emerging Legacy of Ronald Regan

Amazon reader reviews:

Let me make it clear that I an an unabashed Ronald Reagan admirer and consider him one of the greatest Americans in history. My first child was named Reagan in his honor, and I was among the people who jumped on a commercial airplane and flew cross country to stand on the side of Pennsylvania Avenue when the caisson carrying his body drove past. It’s a memory that will stay with me to my grave. - Bio Reader

Interesting book with many details on Reagan’s last days and gave me more incite. However was slightly disappointed, but not sure why. - Norman H. Cookson

My husband and I went to President Reagan’s Library on our honeymoon. The book was a great gift for him. always allows me to shop for anything, easily. Plus, I don’t even need to change out of my slippers, which I also bought on Amazon. Thank you. - Crystal Root

To save you money, know this: Ronald Reagan died; the media didn’t like him; the people did. The end. That’s all the information this book contains. I wish I could get my money back but if just one person avoids this based on my review, it will be worth it. - Richard Henry

Government Is the Problem by Colonel Patrick Murray

Amazon reader reviews:

Paid trolls, like Capiche, who can barely string two sentences together let alone a whole paragraph are not people to be relied upon for advice. Clearly Capiche has an agenda to further wreck the constitution, trying to impress us through the use of big words he knows. Liberal elites always believe they know better than the rest of us how we should live our lives.

Read educated and experienced people, like Colonel Murray, then decide for yourself who is right. The book doesn’t cost much and it won’t take much of your time to read. When you’re done, pass it along to a friend or family member who can benefit by becoming alert and awake to what is happening in our country. - John C.

Founding Fathers Board Game by Jolly Roger Games

Amazon reader reviews:

I played this game tonight and it was fabulous. Up to 5 players hold cards which represent delegates to the constitutional convention. These delegates have special powers, which are varied and can be quite intricate. The players decide on whether to approve or disapprove historical sections to articles of the constitution. You can also debate federalist/anti-federalist or big-state/small-state issues. It is a very competitive game, with players trying to accumulate points through various means. - student

Spot It! America - Card Game

Amazon reader reviews:

Spot It! “America” is another great addition to the Spot It! Game line. We have the “Hip” version and love it. We will be getting the “Camping” version next. Prefer the ones that aren’t too kiddish. Hopefully they’ll make more like “America” and “Hip. - Amber

Dreamers and Deceivers: True Stories of the Heroes and Villians Who Made America by Glenn Beck

Amazon reader reviews:

I liked this book so much I made my wife read it. She does not do well with history but she has remembered every story that was in this book very well. - Brandon

I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to learn true history. Not everyone is who are history books tell us. - Amazon Customer

Great stories from history that we can learn from that none of us were taught in the now biased education system. - Debbie Beeber

Good read.. Surprised to find that he used some litierary license in his explanations at the end of the book - Marion Blackburn

The Conservatarian Manifesto by Charles C.W. Cooke

Amazon reader reviews:

The two party system has turned into a 1 party system and those who don’t stand up to fight for what they believe in are doomed to see history repeat itself much like the 1940's. We cannot allow that to happen. We must repel our borders. - D. Nick

For those who care, he does use occasional language. - RuthSophia

It pretty much looked like a series of everyday wishy-washy National Review columns. - Carl Schoen

Book collector and pleased with item. Will return. - Gypsy

Adios, America by Ann Coulter

Amazon reader reviews:

Ann’s most amazing and timely book yet. As only she can, she exposes the breathtaking evil of the left’s plan to destroy the country they’ve hated their entire miserable existence. And now, it is happening before our very eyes, as Obama commits treason worthy of death to the country we love. - John Smith

I live in Tucson Arizona....65 miles from a third world country. We are being invaded. With their birth rate we will be outnumbered by 2050. We will then become a third world cess pool. We better all read this book. - David T. Faust

Eye opening,Alarming.More evidence that the NY Times continues to be guilty of journalistic fraud.The democrats increase their political power with every anchor baby born here.11 million illegals is probably vastly underestimated.”Adios” is a great triple entendre title. - David Cruickshank

Power to the People: The New Road to Freedom and Prosperity for the Poor, Seniors, and Those Most in Need of the World’s Best Health Care by Peter Ferrera

Amazon reader reviews:

excellent book...perfect for when liberals use their usual tactics of asking for conservative solutions(don’t worry, they won’t understand them anyway)...if only our educational and political systems would catch up to this author but unfortunately, they are stuck in the failed philosophy of the Utopian Statists of the late 19th and entire 20th century(i.e. Karl Marx et al). Awesome book!!! These are the answers. I wish i lived in a country that followed this book - Jonathan E. Schwartz
