This was a LIMITED EDITION of 1,000 copies, copy #001 of which has gone to President Trump.

There are TEN COPIES left at $200 each, I will say that in my view these books are $500 collector items and Ben is underpricing them.  Contact Ben Garrison using the Contact Form if you want to buy one of the ten copies remaining.

This book is PRICELESS.  As I went through it in growing wonder my first thought was that we need a national Ben Garrison Museum with large size prints so that one could walk through the book in  lifesize form.

I read a lot and have appreciated many political cartoonists over the years,  but there is no one, anywhere, that can compare to Ben Garrison, not only in terms of trenchant cultural and economic and political commentary in cartoon form, but in terms of his patriotic pro-faith pro-family stance.

If the extreme left and the Deep State and the Zionists and Satanists are everything that is evil in this world, then Ben Garrison and his hero Donald Trump are the epitomy of everything that is good in  this world.

Praise the Lord and pass the cartoons — this is a KILLER book!

SUMMARY REVIEW

Six Stars — Sickening Detailed Account of Trillion Dollar Crimes by Bankers Ignored While Black and Latino Workers are Beaten Daily for Profit at the Bottom of the Injustice Pyramid

Review by Robert David Steele

I read this book on my way to and from Dimensions of Disclosure where I delivered a speech on “If I Were President” and I have to say, if I were President, Matt Taibbi would be one of the people I would truth to tell me the truth about injustice across America at the hands of the “law.” Death by cop is now the 6th leading cause of death among young men in America.

This book made me sick to my stomach and very angry because I know that the Attorney General of the United States of America — today William Barr — does not give a shit about all this, and is doing nothing to assure justice — a fundamental contractual element between the citizens who formed the government and the government that is supposed to serve  the citizens.

My first note about this book: legalized plutocracy at the top, police state at the bottom — the system is NOT FAIR.

In that regard, I must give a shout-out to the Hon. Dr. Cynthia McKinney, six-term Member of Congress and my dearest colleague in relation to the #UNRIG project, who has told me on more than one occasion as we did 3,000 miles in the #UNRIG RV, “Robert, know you know what it is like to be black with no rights.” Indeed she has often said that all the bad stuff now being done to whites was practiced on blacks first and the failure of whites to stand up for blacks is now playing out as the inevitable consequence.

The author has done a compelling job of both demonstrating personal street work and direct ground truth observation and interviews — and research deepening his book, for example, there are more people in prison in the USA today than the Soviet Union ever had in its gulags, or were ever slaves before the Civil War.

Interestingly, because my other hero on  this front is Sidney Powell, who has documented how the federal government lied so deeply that ever person representing the government should have lost their license to practice law, the author observes that the Arthur Anderson and Enron debacles were so deep that they led the Department of Justice to literally give up on prosecuting the rich or major firms.  Too big to fail is actually too rich to chase, the federal government no longer represents the public interest, and has converted crimes meriting lifetimes in jail to civil suits where money buys impunity.

Eric Holder, an Obama appointee, is the original architect of the policy that gave the wealthy a free pass. By converting major financial and corporate crimes to a civil instead of  a criminal process, Holder made fines part of the cost of doing business, and incentivized bigger broader crimes. The individual executives got the message: they were immune from jail time or personal accountability. Since 2008 not a single high-ranking executive from any financial institution has gone to jail.

In passing the author documents a specific case in which short sellers with hundreds of millions on the line can destroy companies with impunity, with false reports, intimidation and deception and other crimes, simply to ensure their bad judgement pays off.

Tim Geithner as Secretary of the Treasury obstructed justice on multiple occasions.

At the bottom, the Department of Homeland Security runs its own court system — like the Center for Disease Control and its court system that protects pharmaceutical corporations while denying justice to all those killed and sterilized and injured by vaccines, the “justices” that abuse immigrants are not Article III justices.  They are like a private mercenary court that can abuse people with impunity. The author describes many atrocities in this sysem that are far more numerous and destructive across millions of people than the lying that Sidney Powell describes in her book.

I was and remain deeply troubled by the conversion of social services at the state level into a fascist mafia that demands that those asking for aid give up all their rights, and that has converted social services from a sympathetic last resort to a goon squad that can abuse any needy person with impunity.

Impunity is a word that sticks in my mind.  The “system” is not only rigged for the rich, it is OUT OF CONTROL for the poor and the middle class, and I keep coming back to the idea  that Donald Trump is never going to clean this mess up, it needs a shit kicker willing to put 1,000 policemen and 1,000 “social workers’ in jail. At a minimum I believe we need to remove all judicial proceedings from the unqualified OUT OF CONTROL DHS and CDC systems, and massively clean up while also expand our Article III courts and rid our Courts of Vatican and Zionist and CIA compromise.

A MAJOR part of this must be the elimination of all police arrests based on the mission creep that essentially allows the police to arrest anyone for literally standing on the sidewalk at midnight with no one present.  The alleged crime is “obstructing pedestrian traffic.” I do not make this shit up.  Bill DeBlasio and Michael Bloomberg and Rudy Guliani should all be investigated, tried, and convicted for all these abuses of the public in the aggregate and never again allowed to serve in public office. They have led the way — along with Zionist training that teaches our police to treat us as “cockroaches,” and budget-building exercises that demand that “crimes” be identified even as crime has gone down year after year, so our poorly paid police can work overtime and earn a living wage.

On the one hand, the courts have made it easy for police to brutalize people and get away with it because individual police records are restricted and lawyers are not allowed to obtain a history of the individual police brutality suspect.

On the other hand, our police are clearly underpaid and badly trained, which is to say, they are no longer trained to do community policing and take a bullet for a citizen, but rather to do predatory pervasive drag-nets that haul in people in grotesque violation of the 4th amendment, without any probable cause what-so-ever, and then blackmail those individuals into giving up their rights or go to jail pending trial. Civil asset forfeiture is another consequence of underfunded policing and inattentive or compromised judges.

I learn about “ghosts,” undercover police who are everywhere and call in uniformed police to make arrests based on what are more often than not completely erroneous assumptions that ruin people lives because, like Bill Clinton’s blow job, “they can.”

Last but not least, there is gold in this book for the Trump campaign.  Despite Obama’s many crimes on the open borders front, including flying in  tens of thousands of Iraqi and Syrian illegal immigrants, he evidently also oversaw the growth of the most brutal anti-immigrant gestapo in the history of humanity. I give the author Matt Taibbi, who is inherent left of center, huge credit for documenting the fact that compared to Donald Trump, Barack Obama is Idi Amin and Trump is at worst Nelson Mandela.

To achieve that solution:

#UNRIG Shout-Out to President Donald Trump

This is without question a six-star book because it goes to the heart of what it means to live in the land of the free (allegedly). The author makes it clear that in the USA, justice is not fair — the rich get to steal trillions and destroy HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS lives (e.g. with interest and currency rate manipulation, exploding individual clients with impunity) – while the poor get beaten, fined, jailed, and repeat, simply for being so poor that the police can abuse them with impunity.

We are not America  the Beautiful. We are America the Beast.  Time to fix this.

Robert Steele @ Amazon: Summary Review with Links: A Politics of Love by Marianne Williamson (Trump Revolution Book 39)

Amazon Kindle Page

This is a six page summary review of a political-cultural-economic-social transformation that is both needed and possible, by the one person seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency who appears authentic, inclusive, and truthful. Links to free online supporting documentation for the author’s radically humanistic and deeply spiritual proposals are included in the formal review. An additional five pages of links and one paragraph extracts are appended to give the Kindle reader easy access to a range of mass media depictions of the author that range from angelic to whacko.

Marianne Williamson is not a whacko. Anyone who says she is, in my opinion. is either committing legally-actionable defamation while executing a Cabal media “hit job,” or simply a deeply twisted human being completely lacking in intelligence, integrity, and imagination, three qualities this citizen has in abundance. With assistance from Thom Hartmann, one of the greatest minds on the progressive center-left, and a few others properly acknowledged at the end of the book, she has created a manifesto that is being sent to First Lady Melania Trump and to Kellyanne Conway because the author’s vision is transpartisan, transformative, and an utterly essential foundation for moving America forward.

Win or lose — and the DNC is trying to kill her quick — Marianne Willliamson has gifted us with a practical and an enduring vision for reasserting who we are as a Republic of sovereign individuals who aspire to domestic tranquility and a foreign policy of — as Ron Paul says — commerce, friendship, and peace.

The first three chapters set the stage for agreeing that America is in crisis; that we all have the power to get right with God, country, community, and family now and forevermore; and that how we debate, how we engage, matters greatly. I agree with the author’s subtle dismay about both the extreme left and the extreme right, and I am surprised to find across this entire book more holistic analytics and true cost economics than any prior or existing “presidential” book, without exception.

The next four chapters each take one major issue and in a most compelling fashion, outline what our politics and our economy and society would like if we demanded an honest evidence-based government that focused on We the People, rather than doing the bidding of foreign powers and predatory capitalists who treat all of us as disposable deplorables.

Very selective quotes are included. If there were ONE book I could recommend for reading this 4th of July and beyond, this is it. It is readable, and it is a primer on restoring America’s soul in the context of America’s Constitution.

People, not parties. Love, not fear. Transparency not secrecy, peace not war. Yes, yes, yes, and yes.

6 Stars – The Only Authentic Democratic Candidate

Reviewed by Robert David Steele

This is a six page summary review of a political-cultural-economic-social transformation that is both needed and possible, by the one person seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency who appears authentic, inclusive, and truthful. Links to free online supporting documentation for the author’s radically humanistic and deeply spiritual proposals are included in the formal review. An additional five pages of links and one paragraph extracts are appended to give the reader easy access to a range of mass media depictions of the author that range from angelic to whacko.

I was so deeply impressed by Marianne Williamson’s authentic, inclusive, and truthful nature – all five minutes that she was allowed – during the second Democratic Clown Show, that I looked her up on my blog to find that she is the real deal – here is an edited work of hers that I appreciated in 2001, a year after which it was published.

Review: Imagine–What America Could Be in the 21st Century

My 5 star title then was “Vastly More Practical (and Political) Than Title Suggests.” I also noted then – 16 years ago – that the author was associated then with the Global Renaissance Alliance, a spiritually-oriented group that nurtured Citizens Circles.

Marianne Williamson’s presence in the 2020 presidential primaries is not an accident.  She has been growing into this role as a spiritual complement to President Donald Trump (she has a great deal in common with First Lady Melania Trump, to whom I have mailed a gift copy of this book, and another copy to Kellyanne Conway). America needs to see more of the First Lady, and I would very much like to see the First Lady reach out to Marianne Williamson who shares her passion for helping kids in school “be best” and help – in her own way – make love for our citizens first and then humanity generally – the centerpiece of our President’s forthcoming 4th of July speech and a moderating influence on his second presidential campaign.  While the President makes it clear that he cares deeply about the average American, embracing Marianne Williamson’s core points will make him a better president. Just as I have been urging the President to enlist Dr. Cynthia McKinney, I would urge him to enlist – and LISTEN TO – Marianne Williamson. The Democrats and media are trashing her because they fear her. I do not fear her, I VALUE her, and am quite certain the First Lady and Kellyanne Conway will see my point.

Marianne Williamson is the ONLY Democratic candidate that is truly authentic, inclusive, and truthful, and the only one who clearly articulates – as she does in this book far more than she was allowed to articulate during the debate – why we need to flip our government right side up and restore both the bottom-up aspect – the government must serve the citizens, not its Deep State bribers and blackmailers – and the love aspect. She AGREES with Candidate Trump (and Ron Paul) on so many fronts.

Perhaps even more importantly, she is so different from the other candidates in her spiritual embrace of reasoned civil conversation, that she and George Will may be the new pairing, as Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich once were.  The below review should be read as a complement to this review.

Review: The Conservative Sensibility by George F. Will – Handbook for an American Renaissance

The book opens with deep authenticity, rooted in having a correct compassionate consciousness during the Los Angeles AIDS epidemic that ravaged gays and straights alike. She goes on to respect President Donald Trump as the answer to the prayers of millions of citizens who are in deep pain, in trauma, unheard and oppressed by the combination of an over-bearing state that imposes, among other things, vaccines that kill and maim and do not protect, and predatory unethical unconscious capitalism that has captured the  government (George Will is more erudite but they are both in agreement: the federal government has been captured by what he calls rent-seekers and I call carpet-baggers).

I am giving a speech at the Dimensions of Disclosure conference in Ventura, California in August 2019, and my working title is “What Would a Full Disclosure Government Look Like.” This book by Marianne Williamson answers – imperfectly but importantly – the question “What would a government rooted in love for its citizens and for humanity look like?”

This is not a typical presidential campaign book, but it does cover the bases and there are so many specifics woven in here that I strongly suspect this book was ghost-written to an extent by Thom Hartmann (who wrote one of the Prefaces to my own book free online, ELECTION 2008: Lipstick on the Pig). I have read many of the “mandate for change” books put out by prior presidential campaigns – they were the basis for my focusing on twelve issues in my own very brief 2012 presidential campaign (agriculture, diplomacy, economy, education, energy, family, health, immigration, justice, security, society, water).

The first three chapters set the stage for agreeing that America is in crisis;  that we all have the power to get right with God, country, community, and family now and forevermore; and that how we debate, how we engage, matters greatly. I agree with the author’s subtle dismay about both  the extreme left and the extreme right, and I am surprised to find across this entire book more holistic analytics and true cost economics than any prior or existing “presidential” book, without exception.

QUOTE (8): Any person, economic system, or political establishment that fails to concern itself with the pain of others is out of alignment with spiritual truth.   . . .   Once we give ourselves social permission to think that money, not love, is the organizing principle of a well-adjusted society, chaos is inevitable.

QUOTE (11): Our government has become a system of legalized bribery, less concerned with deep issues of humanity’s purpose and more with shallow questions of money and power.

Although this book has no index and no endnotes I am deeply impressed by the breadth and depth of the insights across the book. For any sentence in this book, I can point to at least one non-fiction book that will add a sledge hammer of emphasis.

QUOTE (37): Someone knew exactly what they were doing when American civics and history lessons started disappearing from many public school curricula.

Review: Weapons of Mass Instruction

Review: TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE – Social Engineering the Masses by Daniel Estulin — Deep State Playbook

QUOTE (48): Economic values have taken precedence over ethical values, and now we’re having to face the consequences of this moral corrosion.

Review: Philosophy and the Social Problem–The Annotated Edition

Review: Homeland Earth

QUOTE (55): The moral mission of the United States is to create a society in which, to the best of our ability, all material shackles are removed that keep any person from becoming who he or she was created to be. . . .  The power of our first principles, our democratic values, is that they speak to something higher than politics. They speak to the human condition.

She might as well be channeling Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, AND George Will. This is common ground for common good.

This author – and the people who helped her research and write the book – easily pass my smell test for gravitas, civic sensibility, and truthfulness. They are wrong on some points, but on balance Marianne Williamson is first after Donald Trump in my heart and mind.  She is a precious national asset who cannot and must not be ignored.

QUOTE (77-78): The threat is authoritarian corporatism, which does not respect serious conservatism, serious progressivism, universal humanitarian values, or even democracy itself.

Review: Griftopia–Bubble Machines, Vampire Squids, and the Long Con That Is Breaking America

Review: The Soul of Capitalism–Opening Paths to a Moral Economy

The next four chapters each take one major issue and in a most compelling fashion, outline what our politics and our economy and society would like if we demanded an honest evidence-based government that focused on We the People, rather than doing the bidding of foreign powers and predatory capitalists who treat all of us as disposable deplorables.

Economy: Focus on natural capital and particularly children and the general education and health of the public. Education must include arts, music, play, as the engines of creativity.  And of course civics.

QUOTE (110): The idea that a corporation should bear no responsibility to anything other than the financial bottom line of its stockholders destroys the social fabric of our society as well as the natural environment on which all business, and indeed all life, depend.

Review: Ecological Economics – Principles and Applications (Second Edition)

Review: The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid

Youth: This is a core chapter with insights very few “leaders” acknowledge. Generation Z is going to destroy the two-party tyranny (two wings, one bird, same crap) because Generation Z “gets” that the US government has betrayed them, their college educations are worthless, and there are not enough good jobs with meaning anymore.

QUOTE (133): So many of America’s children are endangered either physically or emotionally, it should be seen as a humanitarian emergency.

The author is very much in “family first” mode, such that I cannot help but see the transpartisan resonance of this theme as covered by a major conservative outlet:

American Greatness: America Needs a Family-First Movement

I agree – and the author is probably not aware that Deputy Secretary of Labor Del Spurlock, under President Ronald Reagan, foresaw this emergency and created the Joint Labor-Defense solution, “Building a Post Cold War Workforce for the 21st Century: Our Manpower Peace Deficit”. See also ON THE RECORD: Our Jobs Proposal, Centered on Veterans.  We have two emergencies in the USA, the first centers on the need for holistic fulsome education of children who also have solid family networks, and the second centers on veterans who do not want to be thanked for their service to predatory empire, they want meaningful jobs and an honest government.

QUOTE (143): The US Government should not be run like a business; it should be run like a family.

The author points out that over 74 million people in the United States are under the age of eighteen. This is our President’s non-voting constituency, this is the constituency that will determine whether he lives up to his ambition to be the greatest president ever and make America great again.

Race: The author loses me of reparations for descendants of slaves five generations ago – this is classic liberal nonsense – but she has a point when she emphasizes that we owe some form of justice not only to blacks but to Native Americans.

QUOTE (157): A politics of love is a whole-person pursuit that traces the psychological as well as political history of a relationship between peoples.

QUOTE (167): A politics of love is one in which we address the psychological and emotional wounds underlying our political realities and seek to heal them in meaningful ways.

Quite right. The USA is guilty of predatory capitalism, unilateral militarism, and virtual colonialism around the world, not just within its own borders (which are in turn based on wars rooted in lies), but reparations are not the answer, truth and integrity in all things are the answer. On that topic, the author falls for false narratives common to the liberal persuasion, but I am quite sure she would respond well to evidence-based dialog. We have no alternative but to have a national conversation about all threats, all policies, all costs, and that must include the cost of FORCING children to doubt their gender. Whites are now a threatened minority, and that is a good thing, because whites are now feeling the fear and pain that blacks have felt for so long.  As I have written in Democracy Riots, “we are all black now, deal with it.”

The author is half-right on immigrants. I am a white Latino (Latinos come in all colors including red and yellow) on my mother’s side, born in the USA to a white US-born Angle-Saxon father and grand-father and like all legal Latinos, I cannot abide open borders and the use of taxpayer funds to give illegal immigrants more support than we give to our veterans. Immigration has been a political football, and open borders exist in part because the Johnson, Bush-Cheney, Clinton-Gore and Obama-Biden crime families have demanded open borders so they could run drugs, guns, cash, gold, and small children back and forth with impunity. The President has been slow to show us meaningful arrests, but when he does, the Executive Order on human trafficking should put many US border state politicians, judges, prosecutors, and sheriffs in jail (as well as the CIA, FBI, and DEA officers managing cross-border smuggling to beef up their agencies off-shore illicit bank accounts). The border crisis is not a “made-up” crisis, if anything it is a concealed crisis and I for one will not abide the destruction of America in the same manner that Germany and France have been destroyed by largely unemployed adult male Muslims who rape with impunity because it is “politically incorrect” to hold them accountable. In our case we are dealing with criminal gangs we helped create across the Southern Hemisphere. Europe’s politicians sold out to the Arabs for large bribes at the Barcelona Agreements, and all of our Presidents and Members of Congress since Ronald Reagan have sold us out on this matter. The buck stops with our President and the author needs to get a grip on the facts.

It merits comment that the census question about citizenship is VITAL because today Congressional Districts are apportioned on the basis of ALL voting-age individuals including illegal aliens and visiting foreigners. Counted properly, California would lose four House seats.  This matters.

War and Peace: This is the author’s most powerful policy chapter, and far more sophisticated and nuanced than Tulsi Gabbard, who still thinks 9/11 was done by rag-heads armed with box cutters. On 9/11 and the President’s promise of disclosure see Memorandums for the President: 9/11 Truth. The author nails it when she calls our military a self-perpetuating war machine that yields profit for the banks and pain for everyone else including the US taxpayer. She singles out Saudi Arabia, perhaps fearful of singling out Israel, but the two together stand as examples of powers able to bribe and blackmail every Member of Congress particularly including Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. We have a dishonest Congress – a rigged system – a pay to play system – and this is nowhere more evident than in the fact that 60% of our disposable income goes to the Department of Defense, at the same time that 50% of the Department of Defense budget has been documented as waste, and it is known we cannot win wars.

QUOTE (200): For the $550 million we are spending on just one B-21 raider, we could ameliorate the human suffering of billions of people around the world. That would be the moral thing to do.

That would also be the practical thing to do. I predicted the illegal immigration breakout in my 2002 book THE NEW CRAFT OF INTELLIGENCE: Personal, Public, & Political, and pointed out that as long as we subsidize 40 of the 42 dictators on the planet (the only two we don’t love are Cuba and North Korea), they will continue to abuse their publics and create waves of dispossessed, impoverished, diseased refugees.

The author embraces Dennis Kucinich’s idea of a Department of Peace, I would modify that somewhat by first closing all of our military bases overseas and bringing all of our troops and their wallets home, and then creating an Inter-Agency Development Command rooted in an Open Source Agency that stops the practice of lying to public about everything. It was quite telling to me that when I briefed the latter idea to the top national security aide for Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) who many years ago wrote the Foreword to my second book, she lost interest the minute I said that the mission of the OSA would be “to tell the truth about everything.” She got up and left. No one in Washington wants the truth because the truth is a budget cutter and a power reducer. No one in Washington cares about balancing ends, ways, and means, something Senator Sam Nunn (D-GA) understood so very well.

This is also the chapter where the author’s commitment to holistic thinking is most visible, and I completely embrace her view that love instead of fear is a more sophisticated world view (and also much less expensive and much more sustainable in policy form).

QUOTE (207): According to research by the Friends Committee on National Legislation, “The world spends just $1 on conflict prevention for every $1,885 it spends on military budgets.

I nailed this one in my ghost-written article for the Commandant of the Marine Corps in 1989, but all of my ideas were seen for what they were: a threat to the unlimited budget for war and covert operations including regime change.  I explicitly called for re-inventing intelligence so as to better justify “peaceful preventive measures.”

Gray, Al (Ghost-Written by Robert Steele), “Global Intelligence Challenges in the 1990’s,” American Intelligence Journal, Winter 1989-1990, pp. 37-41.

The author’s final two chapters are articulate and compelling – a politics of love that puts people first.

QUOTE (228): The day has come for an American reckoning.

Indeed. The Democrats are too corrupt to let this brilliant spiritually-grounded candidate for the Presidency advance – they will demolish her as The Daily Beast, a Cabal rag has, labeling her a wacko. She is not a wacko.  She is the first Democrat since Dennis Kucinich, Cynthia McKinney, and John F. Kennedy to impress me – with perhaps a nod toward John Edwards. Marianne Williamson is the real deal, and if the Democrats are too craven to advance her toward the convention, then I pray that the First Lady and Kellyanne Conway will point out to the President that there is an oracle in play – a woman of great intelligence, great integrity, and great imagination – who should be heard, respected, and embraced. Marianne Williamson just defined the gold standard for politics – a politics that places people first and is rooted in love not fear, and there is not a single other Democratic candidate for president that is at this level of authenticity, inclusiveness, and truthfulness.

People, not parties. Love, not fear. Transparency not secrecy, peace not war. Yes, yes, yes, and yes.

Bloomberg: Marianne Williamson Is Just What the Democratic Party Needs

Finally, there is Marianne Williamson. When she first began to speak, I googled her, as I suspect did many other Americans. Her eccentric manner can be distracting, but I recommend instead focusing on her values. Her performance suggests that Democrats need to take a broader, deeper set of values into account: sometimes love and New Agey spiritual values, other times historical values. Her answer about making America the finest country for a child to grow up in was perhaps the best single moment of either debate, and that too stemmed from her understanding of values.

In the closing moments of Thursday night’s Democratic debate, Marianne Williamson looked straight ahead and told the audience that her plan for her candidacy is to harness the country’s love. “Mr. President, if you’re listening,” she said, addressing Donald Trump directly, “you have harnessed fear for political purposes, and only love can cast that out. I am going to harness love for political purposes,” she continued, raising her eyebrows. “And sir, love will win.”

“I think the issue is that politics has swerved,” Williamson said, opining that American politics has turned “toxic.” “The problem is with an over-corporatized, over-secularized political conversation so disconnected from values, so disconnected from issues of moral and ethical responsibility, as to have broken itself off of the major river of American thought and American life. That’s why so many people can’t relate to it.” She said that the U.S. is suffering from a “sociopathic economic system” that doesn’t value the American worker.

UPI: Marianne Williamson running for president as a ‘political visionary’

Williamson first announced her bid for the White House in January, saying that America is in a broken state and in need of “political visionary” more than a “political mechanic.”

“I do not see American politics today as a conduit for a deep and meaningful transformative experience, either for our citizens or for our country,” she states on her campaign website. “Our government is now little more than a system of legalized bribery, and our traditional political establishment at its best is a container for an obsolete conversation about democracy and values and people.”

The Atlantic: What Do You Do When No One Takes You Seriously?

Williamson told me she saw Trump’s election as a blaring siren that the political establishment had ignored a revolution building underneath its feet. “The American people are not stupid. They know the game is rigged. They know we’re screwed,” she said. “The crying out for change was itself legitimate. Obviously they got the wrong kind of change agent. They got a con artist.”

Marianne Williamson says she is running for president to bring a “moral and spiritual awakening” to America — and that includes a $100 billion investment in reparations for slavery. “We need to get real in this country,” the bestselling author and lecturer told a CNN town hall in April. “… Racism is a character defect. Let’s end this. Let’s fix it.” Williamson, 66, is a Texas native who has never held public office and is best known for being a spiritual counselor to Oprah Winfrey.

Intelligencer: 68 Minutes With Marianne Williamson

This is a campaign event for Marianne Williamson, the self-help author and now semi-serious Democratic candidate for president. She’s very much in the “long shot” category, but she has gathered enough support to qualify for the first debate — which is more than the sitting governor of Montana and a congressman from Massachusetts can say. She’s a friend of, and former spiritual adviser to, Oprah Winfrey; the person who officiated Elizabeth Taylor’s wedding to Larry Fortensky; and a onetime congressional candidate from L.A.’s 33rd District whose supporters included Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, and Chaka Khan, and whose campaign anthem was written by Alanis Morissette (“We’re going down?/?Unless we move to new ground?…?Unless we revive this Constitution?/?From sure disintegration?/?Live out this revelation?/?Today”). In that race, she also received an endorsement from Dennis Kucinich, who remains an admirer. “Marianne is brilliant, insightful, and spiritually aware,” he says. “She is a true leader and does not require an office for affirmation, which is why she speaks with such compelling candor at a time this country desperately needs truth-tellers.”

“If you don’t get real, and you don’t get brutally honest, and you don’t get down to what’s really happening in a situation, and you don’t look deeply at the dynamics and the gaps between people, and the gaps between us and our truths, between us and somebody else’s truth, between us and our own integrity, then things don’t heal, things don’t really move, things don’t really break through to a better place.”

“I’ve had a 35-year career addressing people’s trauma and how to turn that trauma into transformation,” she continues. “All that a country is a collection of people, so the same psychological and emotional and spiritual forces that prevail within the journey of an individual prevail within the journey of a nation. The political Establishment is so blind to the deeper psychological and emotional factors at work. Our feelings do more to drive our behavior than does our intellectual analysis. Where people are not loved and not supported, despair arises, and large groups of desperate people are one of the most dangerous sociological elements possible. Desperate people are more vulnerable to ideological capture by genuinely psychotic forces.

That’s true whether it’s a corner of an American city, where people are vulnerable to gangs, or the whole United States, where people are more vulnerable to an authoritarian demagogue.”

Jezebel: Marianne Williamson Went Full Goop at the Democratic Debate

Spiritual leader and best-selling author Marianne Williamson, who has skirted thisssssss close to being anti-vaccine in previous appearances, had quite a mouthful to say about our healthcare system—or what she called our “sickness-care” system—in the opening minutes of the second Democratic presidential debate.

New York Times: 18 Questions with Marianne Williamson

Ms. Williamson has built her campaign on the idea that love can be a political force. Her political heroes include Bobby Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower. She said she would not make any moves in Afghanistan until she first spoke to Afghan women.

Though she identifies as Jewish, Williamson served five years as Minister at Detroit’s 2,500 member Christian Church of Today, a non-denominational member of the Association of Unity Churches. Steven Tyler was a recurring musical guest, Los Angeles Magazine reports. In her early days in politics, LA Magazine reports, Williamson was known to refer to herself as “Obama 2.0.”

Vox: Marianne Williamson is Oprah’s spiritual adviser. She’s also running for president.

The self-proclaimed “bitch for God” wants us to look more closely at who we are.

”Our national challenges are deep, but our political conversation is shallow,” she said. “My campaign is for people who want to dig deeper into the questions we face as a nation and deeper into finding the answers.’’

“She uses the language and attraction of sensuality to hold an audience,” one Psychology Today journalist wrote in a profile of Williamson in 1992. “Her charisma is sexual and humorous. Watching her perform is more like wrestling naked with Venus than kneeling with the saints.”

In a foreign policy speech at the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire, Williamson explained, “The same holistic paradigm that has transformed our view of physical health can be applied to our societal health. Active peace-building measures reinforce the social health of our planet the way good nutrition and exercise reinforce the physical health of our bodies.”

The Daily Beast: Marianne Williamson, Longtime Wacko, Is Now a Dangerous Wacko

For decades, Williamson said that medicines don’t cure disease but positive thinking does. Now she’s taking her quackery to a new and dangerous level: the anti-vaxxer conspiracy.

Phi Beta Iota: The Daily Beast routinely lies and defames people. They appear to be a paid outlet for the Cabal and attack people who threaten the Cabal. These are the same people who said that elite pedophilia networks do not exist. Vox is also more often than not a drive-by assassin for the Cabal, but in this instance has painted a useful negative picture that will help Williamson evolve the campaign.

DOC (11 Pages):  Review A Politics of Love 1.5

Robert Steele @ Amazon: Summary Review with Links: The Conservative Sensibility by George Will (Trump Revolution Book 38)

Amazon Page

This is a seven page summary review of one of the greatest books in modern political, economic, and cultural literature. The review concludes with links to other published literary commentary on the book being reviewed, and to superb videos where George Will is interviewed about his book, in this way augmenting the Kindle experience.

The Conservative Sensibility is a masterwork, a capstone work for the author, for his time, for the Republic, and for We the People who have lost our Republic.

Of the over 2,500 books I have reviewed, 10% of which have received a 6 star rating, this book is easily in the top 25 and perhaps the top 10. The last book I remember that impressed me this much was Philip Allot’s The Health of Nations: Society and Law beyond the State (Cambridge, 2002) but this book is closer to home, focused on the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the collapse of the US federal government with a Presidency run amok, a Congress in abdication, and a judiciary all too passive as the Constitution is shredded.

This glorious piece of work, clearly a handcrafted deeply researched endeavor (not a collection of past columns) that draws on all forms of erudition from poetry and theater and fiction to history, philosophy, and science, is noteworthy for integrating deep and diverse citations from the varied leading individuals in the US executive, US legislature, and US judiciary.

6 Stars – Handbook for an American Renaissance

This book is a masterwork, a capstone work for the author, for his time, for the Republic, and for We the People who have lost our Republic. Of the over 2,500 books I have read, 10% of which have received a 6 star rating, this book is easily in the top 25 and perhaps the top 10. The last book I remember that impressed me this much was Philip Allot’s The Health of Nations: Society and Law beyond the State (Cambridge, 2002) but this book is closer to home, focused on the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the collapse of the US federal government with a Presidency run amok, a Congress in abdication, and a judiciary all too passive as the Constitution is shredded.

This glorious piece of work, clearly a handcrafted deeply researched endeavor (not a collection of past columns) that draws on all forms of erudition from poetry and theater and fiction to history, philosophy, and science, is noteworthy for integrating deep and diverse citations from the varied leading individuals in the US executive, US legislature, and US judiciary.

The top four points made by this book, in my view, are these:

01 Most conservatives today are not real conservatives, and have completely lost touch with the roots of our Republic, to wit, the need to protect and conserve the FACT that the USA is unique for establishing the natural rights of its individual citizens prior to the formation of the government by their consent. Individual (and state) sovereignty precede and should always “trump” state power.

02 Progressives as well as fake conservatives are the enemy of liberty for their constant efforts to enlarge the federal government with entitlements as well as interventions such that the primary economic player has become the federal government and its rent-seekers – banks and corporations and non-profits that have learned it is easier to leverage government to increase revenues than it is to be innovative and hard-working.  Interestingly for me, despite the author’s emphasis on rent-seekers as a parasite, none of the Mainstream Media (MSM) reviews – I link four at the end of this review – address this core aspect of the book. The federal government has been captured – it is in enemy hands. The author is persistently wonderful in demonstrating that progressives are full of hatred for the average American whom they consider “vulgar… sick, racist, sexist, imperialist, etc.”

03 All three branches are broken and the judiciary is the solution. Presidential powers need to be sharply, decisively curtailed; legislators need to stop abdicating and delegating to the executive; and the judiciary needs to become more interventionist, ruling against all laws and regulations that are not in keeping with both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

04 Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt accelerated the destruction of the Republic with the twin presumptions that government should shape the public, not the other way around; and that the American Republic had a right and an obligation to intervene in everyone else’s business. The author makes a clear and persistent case for progressives (and faux conservatives) and the enemy within, who strive to impose political correctness (what Marcuse calls “repressive tolerance” where anything goes to the point of no values being allowed), using identity politics to de-moralize, de-construct, de-minish the individual, the family, the community, and the fifty states whose Electoral College votes represent the fact that the Presidency is beholden to the fifty sovereign states, not to the publics at large. Democracy is subordinate to liberty and no inequality confers any entitlement to elevated or even protected political status. While the author is weak on alternative history, what we know now supports his righteous disdain for Wilson and FDR.  See for instance

Review: The Folly of Empire–What George W. Bush Could Learn from Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson

Review: The Fruits of Graft

Review: The Devil’s Chessboard – Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government

This book is a moral and spiritual manifesto for an American Renaissance, a Second American Revolution. As much as the author may despise the presidency (including the incumbent who is not mentioned) I will go so far as to say that President Donald Trump cannot become the greatest president ever without embracing this book and its author, and rising to the challenge this author presents us all. He is strong and pointed when he observes that the federal government, an administrative state picking winners and losers, has ended up focusing on externalities – the economy – on a foundation of ignorance that gestates rent-seekers (carpet-baggers) while also failing completely to focus on virtues and enabling citizens to freely – freely – pursue happiness writ large: fulfilment through hard work and innovation. The public has been “infantilized” as a ward of the federal government.

This book is a certificate course in citizenship starting with the fact that citizens of the USA have absolute rights that cannot and should not be trifled with by the federal government or even the individual states, but are today. The author’s bottom line is that both the citizenry and the judiciary should end their deference to the federal government and to the mis-steps of the executive and legislative branches, and get back in the saddle.

QUOTE (23): Government’s primary purpose is to secure pre-existing rights.  Government does not create rights; it does not dispense them.

This book destroys the progressives and their arrogant and ignorant ambitions to “shape” humanity, inclusive of the legitimization of eugenics and perversions such as pedophilia and transgenderism, The law of unintended consequences, a law that is very applicable when decisions are made in arrogance and ignorance, has destroyed the very fiber of  the Republic, its individual citizens. Social engineering is in fact social genocide.

The author draws the connection among taxes (I maintain the 16th Amendment should be over-turned or even more aggressively, shown to have never been properly ratified in the first place), debts, and wars. These are known instruments for subordinating the many to the few and for profit taking by the few over the many.

The author avoids reference to the 17th Amendment perhaps not properly ratified, that effectively castrated the fifty states that comprise the union, and changes the Senators from being the representatives of their sovereign state with both budget and war powers, making Senators nothing more than super-representatives as subject to bribery and blackmail as are all those in the House of Representatives today. He does emphasize on page 140 that the Founders were wise to have the Senators represent the states themselves rather than the publics of those states at large. Worth a look:

William Benson: Assertion That 16th & 17th Amendments to the Constitution Were Not Ratified by Enough States UPDATE 1 Adds 16th Amendment Information

QUOTE (131, citing Daniel Patrick Moynihan): Not long ago it could be agreed that politics was the business of who gets what, when, where, and how. It is now more than that. It has become a process that also deliberately seeks to effect such outcomes as who THINKS what, who ACTS when, who LIVES where, who FEELS how.

To which I would add the point not made in any of the MSM reviews, to wit that the federal government is now in the business of lying to the public, drugging the public, and dumbing down the public.  See for instance:

Review: TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE – Social Engineering the Masses by Daniel Estulin — Deep State Playbook

Worth a Look: Licensed to Lie – Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice

Various points that caught my attention:

Senate should be consulted in firing those whom they have confirmed.

Administrative law has dwarfed statutory law.

Clarence Thomas is a rock star and deserves much more attention and respect.

The author proposes an Amendment to compel Congress to deliberate by making choices. I would go much further – we need to move toward a convention of states to examine all of our Amendments, see this post on this topic:

Robert Steele: 15 Constitutional Amendments — Protect, Modify, Cancel — UPDATE 1

The author also proposes a balanced budget amendment, I would modify that by suggesting that in addition to terminating the federal income tax in favor of a transaction tax on all transactions including stock and currency and supply chain transactions, we need to revert to where the states both approve the federal budget, and allocate funds from state-collected revenues rather than continuing to allow the federal government to print and borrow money with abandon. The author cites James Madison (on page 151) with respect to the Founders intending for America to be a bottom-up Republic of citizens, not a top-down imperial power with subjects.

He goes on to call for judicial muscularity in enforcing a Due Process clause that sharply restricts the government’s ability to regulate and fine via administrative law, often arbitrary, that restricts individual rights.

QUOTE (186): The challenge for a free society is to preserve liberty while nurturing virtue.

QUOTE (212): Since the New Deal, courts have abandoned the protection of economic rights, including the fundamental right to earn a living without arbitrary and irrational government hindrances [such as onerous licensing requirements become one can charge a fee for cutting hair or arranging flowers].

The entire book is a dissection and illumination of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution at the line item level, integrated with reflections on individualism, capitalism the role of religion and faith, and the depth of the ignorance that underlies government decision-making, along with corruption. I am reminded of three books, all of which point out that the best information relevant to any political or economic decision is to be found at the local level:

Review: Governing the Commons: The Evolution of Institutions for Collective Action (Political Economy of Institutions and Decisions)

Review: ANTIFRAGILE – Things That Gain From Disorder

Review: Skin in the Game – Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life

QUOTE (247): The more complex society becomes, the more government should defer to the spontaneous order generated by the voluntary cooperation of freely contracting individuals.

White the author has an exaggerated faith in the information produced by markets (as many books will gladly document, the information reaching executives is invariably biased, incomplete, and often an outright lie), his core point is on target: top-down decision making, even if completely honest, is destined to fail. See for example:

Review: Business Blindspots–Replacing Your Company’s Entrenched and Outdated Myths, Beliefs and Assumptions With the Realities of Today’s Markets

Review: Too Big to Know – Rethinking Knowledge Now That the Facts Aren’t the Facts, Experts Are Everywhere, and the Smartest Person in the Room Is the Room

Review: Organizational Intelligence (Knowledge and Policy in Government and Industry)

Robert Steele: Intelligence at a Cross Roads: To Be Or Not To Be… Review of Principled Spying by David Omand and Mark Phythian

Intellectuals are both ignorant and unnecessary in their current progressive configuration.

The Republican Party is not conservative, not intelligence, and not responsible as a steward.

The two-parent family with a stay-at-home parent is the single best predictor of a child’s future success.

Gerrymandering creates artificial voting blocks and de-incentivize cross-block dialog and negotiation at the District level.

A redefinition of poverty would cut the poverty rate by two thirds – the author is brilliant in outlining the extent to which the government has incentivized a huge proportion of the work-eligible public into NOT WORKING. Dependency proliferates fraud as well as indolence.

The ratio of “disabled” non-working individuals is now 1 for every 16 working, it used to be 1 for 134.

The true cost of an entitlement state is a loss of individual self-reliance, responsibility, and zeal for work. Universalizing dependence on the state has killed our culture.

In combination with outlandish unlimited health benefits, disability payments have created in the federal government a very capable machine for bankrupting the Republic financially as well as spiritually.

QUOTE (349): Today’s America has ample evidence that when you shed customs, you get accelerating social regression. Customs are normative; they affirm some behaviors and stigmatize others. When norms come to be considered optional, or worse, repressive, liberty degenerates into license, which is not a blessing.

Case in point: California schools now forcing all children to receive sex education in which they are REQUIRED to consider the possibility that they be one of up to 30 different types of “approved” sexual deviant.

The chapter on education is thorough and inspiring. Modern education is deconstructionst, reductionist, and regressive. Universities have abandoned all pretense of standards or their role as teachers of history and the ability to think critically. Competing views cannot be tolerated because they might “trigger” some fragile moron who has never learned to be an adult.

Americans are a creedal people. The author mentions this several times.

Presentism has destroyed history.  Judging the past by the politically correct standards of the day is intellectual and moral suicide.

QUOTE (370): The danger is not cultural hegemony but cultural amnesia, and the concomitant balkanization of the life of the mind.

QUOTE (372): Multiculturalism attacks individualism by defining people as mere manifestations of groups (racial, ethnic, sexual) rather than as self-defining participants in a free society.

From Martin Luther to Martin Luther King to Barry Goldwater, conservatism is about respecting the right of the individual to assert their private conscience.

Abandoning standards is the end of education. Identity politics, political correcting, and presentism have killed the American educational system and several generations of citizens. Citing Lynn Truss: we are entering an age of “social autism” in which universities have become the theater of victimization and epistemological nihilism.

Greatness is hard, decay easy.

QUOTE (516): It is time for second thoughts – or, in many instances, first thoughts – about the price we are paying for what has been lost.

Our Republic has been ruined by the ability of the political class to conceal from the public – with the active assistance of academia and the media, the true cost of consumption without limits. In this context, government is inimical to the public interest because it fosters both dependency and waste as well as uncivic aggressiveness and outright fraud (lies, bribery, blackmail) that bend public institutions and public funds to private factional advantage – the rent-seekers have hijacked our government and our country.

This is a book that merits more than one reading. It has a few flaws in that it does not address the degree to which the Deep State and secret societies have deliberately subverted the government; it ignores the role of Zionists in balkanizing first Europe and then the Middle East; it has no sense of the degree to which the dumbing down and drugging up of the public – and the acquiescence of politicians in high crimes and misdemeanors including the theft of $43 trillion from the public treasury and the persistent engagement of elements of the government in crime – running drugs, guns, cash, gold, and humans for sale – are a major part of our fall from grace.

What do we stand for? Here are my own reflections.

Robert Steele: Reflections on The People’s Army, The Constitution, & Grand Strategy

Robert Steele: The Second American Revolution – Reflections on the Near Future UPDATE 2

The time for the Second American Revolution is now. This author is the second Arsonist.

Review: The Arsonist – The Most Dangerous Man in America (James Otis 1760?s Catalyst for Liberty)

This is not a book our President will read. This is an author whose insights and values should be represented in the forthcoming 4th of July speech by President Donald Trump. That they may never meet is our American tragedy in a microcosm. That I embrace this author and his call to reconnect to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution is a given. It is my prayer that George Will be heard across the land, particularly by Generation Z that is realizing that both the “progressive” vision and the fake conservative vision are empty, toxic, and inherently opposed to the root concept, live free or die.
