    Most people today assume that our understanding of WWII is largely complete, thanks to the enormous quantity of books, TV series such as ITV’s classic 1970s documentary The World at War, the myriad of documentaries that aired in the early days of the History Channel cable TV network, and the unending series of movies produced by Hollywood, particularly when compared to its predecessor, WWI. But classicist historian and fellow PJM columnist Victor Davis Hanson does yeoman’s work unpacking the events of 1939-1945. Starting with the plurality in the title, Hanson’s 2017 book, The Second World Wars: How the First Global...
  • Media weren't fooled by Schiff's Russia 'hoax,' they were an 'essential part of it,' says author Lee Smith

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff played “magician” by claiming there was Russian collusion without clear evidence, and the media helped push the narrative for three years, journalist and author Lee Smith argued on Tuesday. “The press played magician’s assistant, helping Schiff obscure what was going on for three years,” the author of "The Plot Against President Trump" told “Fox & Friends.” Smith said it was "sad" that Schiff’s Russia collusion narrative was pushed so heavily by the media. He also said that while a lot of “very important press institutions hold the same name, they no longer serve the...

  • Amity Shlaes’ ‘Great Society:’ How Poverty Won America’s War on Poverty

    —Sargent Shriver, brother in law of JFK and the “architect” of the “War on Poverty,” to socialist Michael Harrington (who wanted much, much more of the American taxpayers’ dollars), 1964. Amity Shlaes’ newest book, Great Society: A New History is a sequel to her two studies of 1930s and 1920s, 2007’s The Forgotten Man, and 2013’s Coolidge. The eponymous Forgotten Man was the taxpayer, the man footing the bill to fund FDR’s New Deal. As a UCLA press release explained in 2004, “FDR’s policies prolonged Depression by 7 years, UCLA economists calculate.” Even socialist Roosevelt worshiper Paul Krugman has been...

    The author of “Secret on the Tarmac” revealed new details Monday about the secretly held 2016 meeting between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch. “We knew something had occurred that was a bit unusual. It was a planned meeting. It was not a coincidence,” journalist Christopher Sign told “Fox & Friends" about the explosive meeting that cast a negative light over the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. At the time, then-candidate Donald Trump criticized Bill Clinton via Twitter for potentially trying to interfere with the...
  • HIDDEN CAMERA: Police interrogated me about my Justin Trudeau book. They didn’t know I videotaped it (VIDEO)

    I wrote a best-selling book about Justin Trudeau in the last election. After the election, I received a letter by registered mail notifying me that I was being investigated for that book. Trudeau’s elections commissioner claimed it was an illegal campaign activity and demanded that I submit to an interrogation. So I went to Elections Canada’s Ottawa headquarters last week, where I was grilled for an hour by two 30-year veterans of the RCMP — and they refused to rule out a police raid on Rebel News headquarters

    The Suspect by Kent Alexander and Kevin Salwen is a must-read book.  It details how Richard Jewell was accused of being the bomber at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.  Instead of being a hero for saving many lives, he became the main person of interest by the FBI and the press.  Former U.S. attorney Kent Alexander and former Wall Street Journal reporter Kevin Salwen reconstruct all the events leading up to, during, and after the Olympic bombing, showing how much of the law enforcement evidence was ignored, mainly because of tunnel vision. Elise Cooper: Why did you write it now? Kent Alexander: I have wanted...

  • Politico Hypes David Plouffe as 'The Worst Prognosticator of 2016' for 2020 Election Book

    If someone has been judged to have been the worst prognosticator for 2016 you would wonder why his book on how to beat Trump in 2020 is being hyped. Such is the case with Politico whose reporter, Alex Thompson, proclaimed David Plouffe as the worst prognosticator of 2016 yet oddly plugged his book on 2020 election tactics as he did on Super Tuesday in "The worst prognosticator of 2016 makes a 2020 comeback." First, Thompson reveals how horribly (and laughably) wrong Plouffe was in 2016 before weirdly plugging his new book on how to beat Trump as somehow valid.

    Rosie O’Donnell has struck up an unlikely friendship with President Trump’s incarcerated former personal attorney Michael Cohen. Outspoken Trump loather and archnemesis O’Donnell contacted Cohen in writing after he was sent to the medium-security federal prison in Otisville, NY, last year, according to a source. Comedian and former host of “The View” O’Donnell is even said to have visited Cohen — who is again shopping a tell-all book about his years working for Trump — at the upstate facility. The source said, “Rosie and Michael have bonded over Trump, and she’s helping him with his book, which is now highly...

    As 1968 began, Paul Ehrlich was an entomologist at Stanford University, known to his peers for his groundbreaking studies of the co-evolution of flowering plants and butterflies but almost unknown to the average person. That was about to change. In May, Ehrlich released a quickly written, cheaply bound paperback, The Population Bomb. Initially it was ignored. But over time Ehrlich’s tract would sell millions of copies and turn its author into a celebrity. It would become one of the most influential books of the 20th century—and one of the most heatedly attacked. The first sentence set the tone: “The battle...

Wed Mar 4, 2020 Daniel Greenfield 24 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

    Promising an 'intimate and rousing' account of her trials, tribulations and inspirational journey from war-torn Somalia to the United States Congress, Ilhan Omar's new book has all the makings of a bestseller. But what is less certain, is how much the leftist firebrand will earn from her upcoming memoir This is What America Looks Like - or whether it will finally address questions about her multiple marriages and torrid affair with her married aide. Outside the Capitol on Wednesday, Omar was asked whether her book advance would exceed the reported $2 million pocketed by President Trump's former national security adviser...

    NEW YORK - - The publisher of John Bolton’s highly anticipated memoir has pushed back the release date from March 17 to mid-May. Simon & Schuster cited the ongoing government security review of the former national security adviser’s “The Room Where It Happened.” The new date is May 12, the publisher said in a news release. “The new date reflects the fact that the government review of the work is ongoing,” Simon & Schuster said. The Associated Press reported last November that Bolton had reached a $2 million deal with Simon & Schuster. The book focuses on Bolton’s contentious time...

    Hachette Book Group scrapped “Apropos of Nothing,” which was scheduled to come out next month, after Allen’s estranged son, Ronan Farrow, blasted the publisher on Twitter and dozens of employees staged a walkout Thursday. He has been a vocal supporter of his sister, Dylan, who has accused Allen of molesting her as a child. “The Hachette decision to drop the Woody Allen book makes me very uneasy. It’s not him; I don’t give a damn about Mr. Allen. It’s who gets muzzled next that worries me,” King tweeted Friday evening. “Once you start, the next one is always easier,” he...
  • America Unraveled: Christopher Caldwell’s new book argues that, for the past half-century, the U.S. has been effectively living under two competing constitutional regimes

    Christopher Caldwell’s new book, The Age of Entitlement, offers a striking revision of recent American history that has the advantage of being readily summarized. The polarization of political opinion and the dissolution of the American fabric, he argues, has its roots in the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which represented a sharp break with the past. “The changes of the 1960s, with civil rights at their core,” he explains, “were not just a major new element in the Constitution. They were a rival constitution, with which the original one was frequently incompatible.” The common narrative surrounding civil rights,...
