    The SLPC published this 8 years ago. Former Navy SEAL Matthew Bracken Publishes Book Touting Aztlan Conspiracy Theory By Susy Buchanan DOMESTIC ENEMIES: THE RECONQUISTA By Matthew Bracken San Diego, Calif.: Steelcutter Publishing, 2006 $19.95 (softback) In 1973, a Frenchman named Jean Raspail wrote a bitter and paranoid novel about the "invasion" of his native land by starving Third World refugees. The book was a racist vision of the consequences of non-white immigration, aided and abetted, in the author's view, by the weak-minded liberals who failed to resist it. For almost 35 years, The Camp of the Saints has been...

    Matt aboard steel yacht that he built During the last frantic battle to defend the Constitution against those who despise its limitations on government action, one name stands out among Freepers. That name is Matt Bracken, or his freeper screen name, Travis McGee. Matt recognized the immensity of the challenge immediately. This is not new to him, he has been among the foremost in sounding the alarm about the creeping police state that we find ourselves in. His superb dystopian novels in the Enemies Foreign and Domestic trilogy and his top of the line action/adventure novel Castigo Cay are loud...
  • Bracken: A Review Of “A Failure Of Civility”

    “A Failure of Civility” A Book Review by Matt Bracken First, let me apologize for the poor writing quality of this review. Normally, I write an essay and spend days and days polishing it. Not this time. I’m currently in between my “pretty” essays, but this review is just pure business, like a claw hammer you picked up at Home Depot to bang nails. Pretty has nothing to do with it, so let’s get on with the job. Second, let me apologize to the other very kind authors who have sent me their books to review over the past months....

    Washington, DC --( It’s possible there are many who know of Matthew Bracken, who is the author of the “Enemies Foreign and Domestic” trilogy, the third book of which is “Foreign Enemies and Traitors“. That apparently describes what a lot of people feel we are heading towards. “Democide is the elimination of a despised group by a government. It includes genocide, politicide, and other forms of state-sponsored mass murder.” Read an uncomfortably perceptive article by Matthew, and also be sure to watch the powerful short video lower down the page. Pass it on – it deserves a wide audience, to...
  • Bob Schieffer Likens Obama 'Taking on the Gun Lobby' to Hunt for Bin Laden

    01/16/2013 11:40:16 AM PST · by chessplayer · 39 replies
    Bob Schieffer somehow topped Chris Matthews during CBS News's special coverage of President Obama's gun control press conference on Wednesday, as he became the worst caricature of a foaming-at-the-mouth cheerleader for the chief executive. Schieffer lauded "one of the best speeches I've ever heard him [Obama] deliver", and compared Obama's new gun control agenda to Lyndon Johnson's push for civil rights legislation in the 1960s. The CBS veteran even went so far to liken the President's cause to the ten-year hunt for 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden and the difficult endeavor of winning World War II [audio available here; video...

    Dear Mr. Security Agent, Federal, state, or local. You, the man or woman with the badge, the sworn LEO or FLEA and those who inhabit the many law enforcement niches in between and on all sides. This essay is directed to you, because in the end, how this turmoil about gun control turns out will depend largely upon your decisions and actions over the coming months and years. I sincerely wish that members of Congress—who may soon be voting on new gun control measures—would read this essay, but I realize that’s a pipe dream, considering the impenetrable bubbles around those...

    Breitbart News ^ | November 2, 2012 | Tony Lee
    As more information comes to the light about the Obama administration's Benghazi cover-up, a former Navy SEAL officer who once took a military detachment to Libya suggests President Barack Obama was either AWOL -- essentially an "empty chair" -- or deliberately denied Americans under siege in Benghazi the aid they needed by not authorizing "cross-border authority," without which rescue operations could have taken place. Matt Bracken, the former SEAL, writes "only the president can give the order for our military to cross a nation’s border without that nation’s permission." He notes that Obama granted "cross-border authority" for Americans to enter...

    No Lawyers - Only Guns and Money ^ | 2 March, 2012 | John Richardson
    The favorite epithet that the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (sic) and their leaders love to throw at gunnies is "insurrectionist". It doesn't matter which end of the political spectrum you are on, if you believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms then you are labeled an "insurrectionist". Imagine their consternation to see that the number two book on the Top 100 Free Kindle books is none other than Matthew Bracken's Enemies Foreign and Domestic. That is because in their worldview this is one of the classic insurrectionist novels for its portrayal of an...

    I have a rule I tell every author who sends me a book to review: I only write good ones. If I don’t care for it, I’ll decline to say anything. I figure it’s not my place to crush someone else’s labor of love. So I ventured into Matthew Bracken’s latest offering, “Foreign Enemies and Traitors,” with a bit of trepidation. After all, I’d written reviews in this magazine for the two prior volumes in his trilogy, “Enemies Foreign and Domestic” (Nov. 2005) and “Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista” (Feb. 2007). I called the former “a thrilling first novel…one that engages,...

    In 1973, a Frenchman named Jean Raspail wrote a bitter and paranoid novel about the "invasion" of his native land by starving Third World refugees. The book was a racist vision of the consequences of non-white immigration, aided and abetted, in the author's view, by the weak-minded liberals who failed to resist it. For almost 35 years, The Camp of the Saints has been a Bible to the radical right. Now, courtesy of former Navy SEAL Matthew Bracken, comes the American version — a portrait of the apocalypse Bracken fears will overtake America thanks to undocumented immigration from the south....

    <p>ALBANY, Ga. (AP) - In a Sept. 11 story about military retirees' reaction to new documents concerning President Bush's National Guard service, The Associated Press incorrectly identified Ahmad Majied of Albany as a former Navy SEAL. Majied assisted SEAL teams while he was in the Navy, but never was trained as a SEAL. "I should have been more specific," he said Friday.</p>

    Travis McGee Says a Long Goodbye By Lawrence Henry Published 8/27/2004 My old college roomie from time to time cusses me out roundly for introducing him to the Travis McGee novels of John D. MacDonald. Like me, Mike was raised reading quality lit (he majored in classics, and teaches Greek and Latin), and we both came to popular literature -- indeed, to the very idea of reading for fun -- late in life. Like me, Mike was stunned by McGee and MacDonald -- by the sheer quality, the go-to-hell abandoned narrative mastery (MacDonald rejoiced in digression, and his readers rejoiced...

Hancock is a libertarian talk host, his scheduled guest today had to cancel and I was invited to fill in as a last minute substitute.

You can listen to live streaming audio here on KFNX 1100. Then you can tell me if I sounded terrified, drunk, crazy, lucid, brilliant or whatever.

    Matthew Bracken's (Freeper Travis McGee) Novel: Has just become available on Amazon! This is great news for Matt. GO MATT GO! Enemies Foreign & Domestic is as compelling a fictional novel about liberty and the 2nd amendment as you will ever read. It is packed with real life issues right off today's headlines and the political camps on both sides of the issue. It is also just a good, old-fashioned barnstorming novel that you can't put down. IMHO, in his first at bat, Matthew Bracken has hit one out of the park.
