    The late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia was a fan of President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, Bryan Garner a friend and now biographer of Scalia told The Wall Street Journal Monday.Garner, a long-time literary collaborator with Scalia and friend, said that the late justice “thought it was most refreshing to have a candidate who was pretty much unfiltered and utterly frank.”He had spent two weeks in 2016 traveling with Justice Scalia through several Asian countries just a week before his death.Garner added that while Scalia liked Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, “he was fascinated by the fact that Trump was so...

    Confession time. I have not read the new Michael Wolff book, nor do I expect it to make its way to the top of my already extensive list of books I want to get around to reading. From what I’ve seen in various reviews and interviews I’m not missing out on much, but plenty of other people are snapping it up. Unfortunately for some of them, they didn’t look into the details very closely and wound up ordering a different tome by author Randall Hansen. His book, Fire and Fury: The Allied Bombing of Germany, 1942-1945 has experienced a surge...

    Author of 'Fire & FURY' Book Admits He Didn't Interview ANY Of the Trump Administration Michael Wolff admitted Monday that he did not interview Vice President Mike Pence or any Cabinet members, though some of the more incendiary claims in his book Fire and Fury are credited to Cabinet members. The book is dominating the news cycle and claims to portray life inside the Trump White House. He made the admission on CBS This Morning. As CNBC reporter John Harwood put it, many of President Donald Trumps top officials are reported to have said particularly nasty things about the president....

    THE LAST CLOSET: The Dark Side of Avalon is a brutal tale of a harrowing childhood. It is the true story of predatory adults preying on the innocence of children without shame, guilt, or remorse. It is an eyewitness account of how high-minded utopian intellectuals, unchecked by law, tradition, religion, or morality, can create a literal Hell on Earth. THE LAST CLOSET is also an inspiring story of survival. It is a powerful testimony to courage, to hope, and to faith. It is the story of Moira Greyland, the only daughter of Marion Zimmer Bradley and convicted child molester Walter...

    A just published tell-all book from a former Secret Service officer details how former President Bill Clintons allegedly obsessive out-of-marriage relationships endangered the lives of Secret Service officers. Gary J. Byrne, who was assigned to protect Clinton during his White House years, wonders whether Clintons sordid personal affairs worth and officers life as the president often tried to visit his well-known and lesser-known mistresses.

Byrne writes in Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the...

    Fictional Cold War warrior James Bond should be played by a woman, Theresa May has said, hailing the new female Doctor Who as a victory for girl power. Speaking on a flight to Cyprus last week, where she gave a Christmas address to troops at RAF Akrotiri, the prime minister revealed she was a fan of the BBC science fiction show Doctor Who, and lauded the public broadcasters decision to cast Jodie Whittaker in the iconic time travellers role. I think its a great move forward for girl power that there is going to be a female Doctor Who. And...

I rarely post anything, (maybe ten articles in 16 years on Free Republic), but thought this would be a good time for book-lovers to share what we received this morning. Merry Christmas!

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- In one day, a 4-year-old Chicago boy read 100 books, including his favorites about Ninja turtles and dogs. As Caleb Green's reading marathon got started on Saturday, his parents decided to stream it on Facebook Live. He got a couple thousand views from people as far away as Florida. And every time he finished 10 books, he did a little dance. "I like to read and I want to read some more like my sister," Caleb said. When Caleb first told his parents about his goal, they scoured their bookshelves. When they came up short, some friends...

    A couple of years ago, I sat down with a minister to talk about why so many people were not only losing faith, but literally walking away from their houses of worship and their faith. We both agreed it was a growing crisis with multiple negative consequences. He felt that more and more people were simply losing faith in their leadership. Be that political, corporate, or faith-based leadership. They saw and heard from leaders who continually talked the talk but never personally walked the walk. He also felt that the basic needs for joy, hope, faith, and a simple human...

  • Looking for a good book about the Constitution and its amendments (vanity)

    I'd like to study the Constitution and its amendments in greater depth to learn of the historical circumstances and reasoning that led to each amendment's ratification as well as some of the significant case law that has since stemmed from each one. As I've searched for a good book, it seems a lot of them are written by people who have a liberal slant and hence, whose judgment I don't trust. Can any of you recommend a well-rounded, reasonably understandable book that is written by someone with a more conservative mind? Any suggestions along that line would be appreciated. Thanks.

    New York Times reporter Dan Bilefsky devoted a long review-interview in Saturday Arts to left-wing British journalist Jonathan Freedland’s "trenchant satire" novel about the assassinating of a president, “Trump Is Stranger Than Fiction.” He dutifully passed along the suggestion that such assassination porn was inevitable “when the top guy in the White House appears to be recklessly lurching toward global destruction....” Bilefsky, a foreign reporter for the paper, has previously blamed Brexit for hate crimes, but betrays no concern that this novel may provoke in similar fashion, and registers nothing objectionable about the epidemic of imagined presidential assassinations among liberal...

    Earlier this week John touched on the festival of hot takes surrounding Liz Phipps Soeiro, the librarian at Cambridgeport Elementary School who attempted to refuse a donation of Dr. Seuss books from First Lady Melania Trump. I specify “attempted” because it turned out that the school board stepped in and said it wasn’t her call to begin with. That hot mess should have come and gone fairly quickly, but it turns out that there was another chapter of the story to be written.The Mayor of the town where Dr. Seuss (actually Theodor Geisel) was born decided to add some balance...

    SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) The mayor of Dr. Seuss' hometown fired back at a school librarian on Thursday who called the children's author's books "racist" and "cliche" in rejecting a donation of them from Melania Trump. The comments of Cambridge Public Schools librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro were "political correctness at its worst," Springfield, Massachusetts, Mayor Domenic Sarno said in a statement. "One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish, I think her comments stink and are ridiculous towards our beloved Dr. Seuss," he said. Dr. Seuss, whose real name is Theodor Geisel, was born and raised in Springfield.....
