Posted 04.09.22:  "Matthew Continetti's The Right: The Hundred Year War for American Conservatism paints a messier, and for that reason far more accurate, portrait of 20th- and 21st-century American conservatism.... Continetti puts it this way: ‘There is not one American Right; there are several.' His chronicle follows both the intellectuals and party elites, on the one hand, and ordinary conservative voters and activists, on the other.... Continetti captures beautifully the ad hoc, rearguard nature of American conservatism. Not until the end of the book does he make explicit what becomes clearer as the narrative moves forward: ‘Over the course of the past century, conservatism has risen up to defend the essential moderation of the American political system against liberal excess. Conservatism has been there to save liberalism from weakness, woolly-headedness, and radicalism.'"—Barton Swaim, The Wall Street Journal

Posted 03.05.22:  Still the #1 New York Times bestseller! Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win by Peter Schweizer: “Schweizer's two years of research calculates that the Biden family reaped some $31 million from Chinese business executives with ties to the upper ranks of Chinese intelligence. Schweizer also packs some other startling revelations into fewer than 250 pages. The ‘elite' whom he says are profiting enormously from America's decline include big names of Silicon Valley, banking and investment firms, colleges and universities and — of course — government. And neither party has clean hands, Schweizer says.”—Bill Cotterell, Tallahassee Democrat
