Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America

January 2, 2014 at 5:00 am

Glenn Beck’s latest work, Miracles and Massacres:  True and Untold Stories of the Making of America is a remarkable synopsis of various stories in differing periods of American history that are told in an engaging, informative manner, often leaving the reader wanting for more. Beck brings history to life in each chapter, […]


Book Review: “When did White Trash become the new normal?”

November 27, 2013 at 11:39 am

One cannot help but notice the popularity and proliferation of such reality TV programming as Duck Dynasty, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and Snooki & J Wow. (Disclaimer: I am a shameless reality TV addict, as my guilty pleasures include the Bravo! and E! lineups). Author Charlotte Hays’ most recent […]

Seven Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness

7 Men and the Secret of their Greatness by Eric Metaxas

June 11, 2013 at 2:11 pm

Last year, I read Eric Metaxas’ book Bonhoeffer and was inspired by the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. I was eager to read his next book 7 Men because Eric has a way of writing which uplifts the human spirit and in our current times I think everyone needs a dose […]


The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn

April 30, 2013 at 5:38 pm

In the best of plans to go forward toward a chosen and specific goal, there are nearly always stumbling blocks, and in the perusal of personal meaning for The Harbinger:  The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future. Jonathan Cahn I began by stumbling, continued to stumble, and have […]


United in Hate: The Left’s Romance With Tyranny and Terror

March 4, 2013 at 12:27 pm

Dr. Jamie Glazov’s brilliant book, “United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror” explains the bizarre love affair that the Left has had for every mass-murdering Communist, Dictator and/or Marxist throughout time.  It chronicles their dangerous obsession with evil from the likes of Stalin and Mao to their […]


Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing & The Lost Heroes of Seal Team 10

February 20, 2013 at 2:50 pm

This is the story of Axe and Danny and Mikey, the story that only Marcus Luttrell lived to tell. From the book jacket: “Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the […]


Glenn Beck “Agenda 21″ with Harriet Parke

January 14, 2013 at 6:02 pm

Over many years of reading everything from Pogo Possum, Dr. Seuss, a few deadly boring education texts, some rather difficult Spanish short stories, all but the last two Stephen King novels, and about 30 years worth of the Alfred Hitchcock short story magazine, I have come to believe in a […]

Ladies and Gentlemen: Why the Survival of Our Republic Depends On the Revival Of Honor

January 14, 2013 at 6:01 pm

Morality and common decency is something that seems to be missing from our society these days.  With reality television shows like “All My Babies’ Mommas” celebrating the fact that one man has 11 kids from 10 different women, it seems there is a deep decline in basic standards. It is […]

Lives of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence

January 9, 2013 at 10:34 pm

As a Patriot, my mind can hardly absorb what I see happening in and to America.  How could our young nation be so uninformed and uneducated as to elect, and then re-elect, the current President?   A movie plays over and over in my mind of what our Founding Fathers would […]


Andrew Breitbart’s Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Try To Save the World

January 9, 2013 at 10:32 pm

As a Conservative political web-writer, one of my most respected champions was (and will always be) Andrew Breitbart.  I first read his book Righteous Indignation in 2011 but after re-reading it, I’m an even bigger fan than ever before.  I could relate to almost every feeling and emotion Breitbart expressed […]


Primetime Propaganda by Benjamin Shapiro

December 10, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Ben Shapiro is one of the smartest humans I’ve ever met in person.  He was born in 1984, entered UCLA at the age of 16 and graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa in June 2004 with a BA in Political Science.  While at UCLA he was the only […]


Negrophilia by Erik Rush

December 5, 2012 at 1:30 pm

I can truly say that I have the honor of having Erik Rush on our show “Powers to the People” at least twice a month.  Erik is a talent beyond true measure and he is a great joy to know and talk to not only on the air but simple […]


“Going Green” by Chris Skates

November 29, 2012 at 3:20 pm

(Note:  This is my November 2011 review originally published on Patriot Update.  Ann-Marie Murrell) Since I started writing for Patriot Update, authors sometimes contact me asking if I will read (and hopefully review) their books.  The first time this happened I was thrilled and couldn’t wait to get my copy […]


“Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America” by Ann Coulter

November 29, 2012 at 3:12 pm

All summer I meant to read Ann Coulter’s Demonic but kept getting sidetracked by life.   I finally finished it just as the Occupy Wall Street stuff hoopla started taking off. O. M. G. No kidding, those OWS guys are writing my review for me because Demonic is all about mob rule.  Despite Edmond Burke’s […]


“Weapon of A.S.S. Destruction” by AlfonZo Rachel

November 29, 2012 at 3:07 pm

Anyone who reads my column knows I’m a big fan of PJTV political pundit AlfonZo Rachel.  I’ve conducted multiple interviews with him and written multiple articles about him and consider him one of our greatest Conservative voices in the media. “Weapon of A.S.S. (American Socialist States) Destruction” is an absolute […]
