Conservative Book Reviews Is No More

I'm outraged at what has happened to President Trump; I believe Beijing Biden and his "cartel" stole this election, and I think America is now a "banana republic."

If President Trump and the patriots can restore America to what it once was, great. However, I am leaving politics and am no longer continuing with Conservative Book Reviews.

Guest Blog Post: What’s the Deal with Climate Change?

Hi everyone! Young Patriot Rising here. Been a while since CBR and I did a guest post on each other’s blog. I’m super excited for this article! I began YoungPatriotRising after realizing this country will be lost unless conservatives begin to speak out. If you love your country and don't want to see it fall into the wrong hands, this is the right place for you! All patriots welcome! Please support me by subscribing to my blog and following me on Twitter! 

What’s the Deal with Climate Change?

One of the prominent issues in the 2020 election is the issue of climate change. Many millennials and centennials think climate change is a serious subject. This isn’t just a critical issue to liberal millennials or centennials, but it’s important to conservative students as well. Considering we all aren’t dead, nor is the planet, I think climate change isn’t as pressing as people make it out to be. 

The climate is always changing. That is how it’s been like that for years. Caring for the planet shouldn’t be a partisan issue. I always believed in caring for the planet. Unfortunately, older generations (sorry y’all) don’t think this is a big issue. What you guys have to realize is that in 50 years, you guys won’t be here, but we will. I want my children to live on a planet not filled with pollution. Potentially rotting away. We want everyone (plants, animals, and humans) to enjoy this great planet. God gave us this earth for a reason. We shouldn’t willingly destroy it. That is where I believe recognizing that the climate is changing is important. What I don’t agree with is the Democrats’ response to climate change. 

The Green New Deal is the main response Democrats have to “combat” climate change. What ticks me off is when Democrats blame Trump or Republicans for what’s happening in the weather. Let me make this clear: Donald Trump is NOT responsible for hurricanes or the weather. Full stop. No man or woman is responsible for the weather. But Democrats just want Americans to hate each other, no matter how idiotic their “arguments” are. The Green New Deal would cost trillions of taxpayer dollars. By advocating for ideas like the Green New Deal, Americans by 2040 would cause a massive job loss, decreased income, and an increase in electricity. Democrats are willing to spend trillions of our taxpaying dollars just to kill our economy.

Biden and Harris said in multiple interviews they’d get rid of fracking. In Pennsylvania, Biden said he wouldn’t get rid of fracking. Harris said the same in the VP debates. Biden and Harris are lying. Only reason Biden said he wouldn’t get rid of fracking in Pennsylvania is because fracking is a large component of Pennsylvania’s economy. Getting rid of fracking would destroy Pennsylvania, along with other fracking states. Biden knows that, but votes only matter, so he lies to audiences regarding the topic

What Americans might not know is that this Green New Deal was tried in the 1930s, when President Franklin Roosevelt signed the National Industrial Recovery Act, which gave the government power to control wages and prices. Massive government intervention. By doing so, it destroyed millions of American lives. Most economists believe this was a terrible move and caused the Great Depression to be prolonged. Just like the New Deal from Roosevelt, the Green New Deal would destroy American small businesses and the economy. Why would anyone listen to AOC’s ideas when her genius $15 minimum wage caused the bar she bartended at out of business? Learning about history is greatly important because if we don’t learn from the past, we are doomed to making the same mistakes.

What truly boggles my mind is how many centennials and millennials think the United States is the sole country to pollute the planet or cause climate change. We are second to causing the most pollution via carbon dioxide (but these numbers are dropping), but the country creating the most pollution is China. Shocking, I know. China creates the largest pollution in the world, responsible for 30% of the world’s pollution. How come we never hear Democrats mention this? They only blame America for these problems.

The solution to solving climate change or protecting the environment isn’t mass government takeover. Actually, let’s call this what it is: socialism. Socialism results in poverty and more pollution. Capitalism is the solution because free market is innovative. Innovators produce new ways to help reduce carbon emissions and protect the environment. Socialists don’t do that. Have you ever heard a socialist country leading in fighting climate change or being one of the best in keeping their country clean? Absolutely not. No economist supports the Green New Deal because it will only result in disaster.

The way Mike Pence worded climate change is the way I look at climate change. We should be conscious of the effect we, as humans, have on the planet. We can help the planet thrive instead of slowly killing it. I believe this to be true. What I disagree with (and Pence shares this same viewpoint) is destroying the economy or people’s lives in the name of climate change. We shouldn’t have the government control every aspect of our lives in order to save the environment. I do think there are more critical issues than climate change. That said, is climate change a critical issue? Yes, it is. But not important as Democrats make it out to be.

My Book Review: The New Reality – An Exciting Medical Thriller Conservatives Will Love

Book Title: The New Reality: An Alex Pella Novel


Author: Stephen Martino

The New Reality

Before I start this review, we all know that President Trump was diagnosed with the Chinese Virus. (President Trump calls it that, and I’m calling it that. ) Thankfully, as of this writing, he appears to be doing great and there’s a good possibility he will leave the hospital as early as tomorrow, October 5.  

I hate leftists, especially the ones on Twitter. Their response to President Trump’s diagnosis has been beyond horrible.  (I never thought humanity could stoop so low.)  That said, I was pleased to see so many normals (Republicans, Democrats, Independents) sending prayers and well wishes to President Trump. It reminded me that the evil, soulless, deranged stuff coming from the leftists is not most of America. (Remember that leftists are not the same as liberals.)

Now, on to the review:

I've got another fiction book for this blog. THE NEW REALITY, by Stephen Martino, is a conservative thriller that is definitely worth your time.  If you don’t like books with a conservative theme, then don’t read them.  Authors don’t have to take a neutral tone when they write fiction.  They can do what they want.  Furthermore, I don’t review books with a leftist or even a liberal tone here.

Stephen Martino lives in New Jersey with his wife, five children, and a dog.  He is an Amazon bestselling author (which is no surprise to me.) His THE NEW REALITY is the first book in a three-part series, with the main character Alex Pella.  The other two books in the series are THE HIDDEN REALITY and THE FINAL REALITY.  

Stephen says that people compare his novels to such authors as Dan Brown and Michael Crichton.  Is that bragging?  I guess, but the thing is, it’s true.  His writing really is as good as these authors.  Also, one of the things I love about Dan Brown's books is his quick chapters and fast pace.  Stephen does the same with this book.

In addition to being an author, Stephen is a board-certified neurologist and a medical educator. Stephen has a history as a political blogger, as well, and has been a  co-host on the TV Show OnFire.  His books have been featured on many blogs, and he’s been interviewed on a variety of shows such as Hollywood Up Close, the Michael Dresser Show, Writestream Radio Network, and more.


With the Chinese Virus currently wreaking havoc on the world, the theme of this book was especially interesting to me. Without giving away the story (which is tricky to do when I’m reviewing fiction) this novel is set in the future – 2080, and Earth’s inhabitants are dealing with The Disease. Alex Pella, a neuroscientist, and NIH expert Marissa Ambrosia are expected to come up with answers.  Of course, just like President Trump's enemy The Deep State, there are enemies and there are stupid people who follow these enemies.  Government forces intent on power can be very dangerous, as we’ve already seen in real life.  So this book is rather unsettling, actually.

The setting of the book begins in the Middle East, which I thought was creative.  Also, when I read a book set in the future, I expect the author to pay very close attention to details.  Stephen does that here.  You feel like you’re in the future when you read it.   THE NEW REALITY combines not only political themes but also medical and religious (Biblical themes) as Pella and company race to save humanity.

I highly recommend THE NEW REALITY.  Get it in eBook format or paperback.

My Book Review: Live Free Or Die – This Is The Most Important Election Of Our Lives

Book Title: Live Free Or Die: America (And The World) On The Brink

Author: Sean Hannity

Live Free Or Die

When I was a liberal, I hated Sean Hannity. Why? Because leftists on TV told me to hate him. I had never actually seen one of his episodes.  But when I was a liberal, I didn't think for myself.  I let others think for me. Today, as a conservative, I'm no longer clueless.

Since becoming a conservative, I've seen lots of Hannity episodes. Sean annoys me sometimes. He annoys me when he constantly interrupts people (although he's doing that less now.)  He annoys me when he says, "unpeeling an onion." (I make mistakes, and I'm no grammar Nazi but is it "unpeeling an onion" or peeling an onion?)  But for the most part, I like Sean, and I absolutely like his politics.

Sean's LIVE FREE OR DIE: AMERICA (AND THE WORLD) ON THE BRINK is a well-written book that painstakingly explains why America (and the world) is in serious trouble. I'm an American, a conservative, and a proud nationalist.  America is the greatest country in the world, and I'm proud to live here.  But America is currently being polluted by crazy leftwing radicals, and if we don't get a handle on it, America, as we know it, will die.

LIVE FREE OR DIE is not as exciting or entertaining a read as, say, a book by Milo Yiannopoulos or Donald Trump Jr., but in these serious times, that doesn't matter. Read LIVE FREE OR DIE to educate yourself on how radical leftists worked their way to the attention they got from corrupt politicians, like Nancy Pelosi, and a corrupt media.  Read the book to understand the motives of social justice warriors, leftists who control our academia, the deep state, and more.

Speaking of the deep state, remember when it used to be considered a myth?  Not anymore. Thanks to an outspoken President Trump and a few other Republicans who are not spineless, we now know the deep state is very real.

I agree with President Trump that the only way he'll lose this election is through leftist rigging. The radical left will do anything, by any means necessary, to gain power, and that includes rigging the election.  Their mail-in ballot shenanigans have already started.  

As Sean explains, we can't lose this election.  If we do, the radical left's socialist vision – Green New Deal, open borders, socialized medicine, abolishing the Electoral College, etc. - will win.  

I give this book - *****

Next Up: The New Reality

Who do you think will prevail in this election and be sworn-in come 2021 – Trump or Biden?  Let me know in the comments.

My Book Review: Tobacco, Trusts, and Trump: Are You Familiar With the Tobacco Wars?

Tobacco, Trusts, and Trump

Book Title: Tobacco, Trusts, and Trump: How America's Forgotten War Created Big Government

Author: Jim Rumford

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." George Santayana

Are you familiar with the Tobacco Wars? I'll be honest. I wasn't until I read TOBACCO, TRUSTS, AND TRUMP. If you know leftists, they're not big on facts, just ideology. If you don't accept their doctrine, they couldn't care less about the facts.

Conservatives, on the other hand, are different. We care about facts, and one of the best ways to beef up our arsenal of facts is to READ.  In TOBACCO, TRUSTS, AND TRUMP, Jim Rumford explains how the period in history where the war between the Great Tobacco Trust and the working class leads to the big, fat government we have today. 

Chances are you weren't taught about the Tobacco Wars in your history classes. Now is the time for you to learn something that the Establishment doesn't want you to know.

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, and raised in Bracken County, Kentucky, Jim Rumford is currently a resident of Dayton, Ohio. He is an award-winning author, entrepreneur, amateur historian, and CEO of Rumford Industrial Group. In TOBACCO, TRUSTS, AND TRUMP, he references an abundant source of information, including his family ties to the Tobacco Wars.

From 1904 to 1910, in America's heartland (or "the flyover states"), 10,000 working-class people made up a secret organization of lawless militia. Due to their anger at corporate greed, these Night Riders terrorized businesses and farms and murdered its residents.

Rumford explains that both sides of his family fought in the Tobacco Wars – one was a Night Rider, and the other was a tobacco businessman selling to the Tobacco Trust. From there, Rumford explains how we're headed toward more turmoil, similar to the bloody Tobacco Wars.

Every conservative knows that the leftist Establishment couldn't care less about American freedom. They're all about power. President Trump got elected because the working class got sick of being forgotten.  

The Tobacco Wars was an early populist uprising against the Establishment. Rumford warns that we're headed there again unless we protect our freedoms granted to us by the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. We have the freedom to make our way in a capitalist system rather than the socialist system that the Establishment dreams about, and we must not lose it.

I highly recommend that you read TOBACCO, TRUSTS, AND TRUMP to not only learn about the 20th-century Tobacco Wars but how the Establishment has sold us out, and how capitalism and creating your own income is the key to protecting yourself from Government tyrants in the Age of Trump.

TOBACCO, TRUSTS, AND TRUMP is a quick read at only a little over 170 pages.  Get the paperback for $17.99 or get the eBook free with Kindle Unlimited.

My Book Review: Doboro The Bottlenecker - When Adversity Becomes An Asset

Doboro The Bottlenecker

Book Title: Doboro The Bottlenecker

Author: Kevin M. Kraft

For this blog, I don't often read fiction. However, every once in a while, I'll do it as long as the fiction book is conservative. DOBORO THE BOTTLENECKER, by author Kevin M. Kraft, was hard for me to put down. 

Check out the trailer for DOBORO THE BOTTLENECKER.

It's not only action-packed, but it also includes poignant human moments that only a skilled author, such as Kraft, can create. Doboro's relationships with the various females in the book, for example, will leave you thinking about them long after you're finished reading the book. That's how special an author Kraft is.

Kevin M. Kraft is an award-winning author and screenwriter, as well as a singer-songwriter, cigar box guitar guru (and founder of the annual Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Festival), actor, motion-picture director, and producer. He resides in Kansas City, Missouri with his wife and children. DOBORO THE BOTTLENECKER is currently being developed into a film by Kraft's motion picture production company Heaven's Wheel.

I told Mr. Kraft that I don't review books that aren't conservative.  So how does the fiction book DOBORO THE BOTTLENECKER have a conservative theme? 

Dave Granger, a black man, who later changes his name to Doboro, begins as a security guard for Jamong Takuma. Trained in martial arts and traditional weaponry over guns, Granger experiences a catastrophic event that profoundly changes his physical body.  

If something like that happens to you, you have two ways to go. You can feel sorry for yourself and give up. Or, you can accept what has happened to you and fight to live your life.  

One of the main aspects of being a conservative is personal responsibility.  That means that you don't blame others for your situations and circumstances. You take stock of your life and work to improve it.  That's what Doboro does. He overcomes extreme adversity with a fighting spirit.  Along the way, what is perceived as a weakness is actually a gift and his greatest asset. Here is an excellent article on 12 Reflections on Personal Responsibility.

DOBORO THE BOTTLENECKER is a quick read, something you can read over a weekend.  Get the eBook for $2.99 or free with Kindle Unlimited.  Get the paperback for $12.99.

I give this book - *****

Martial Arts involves personal responsibility, mental clarity, strength, and courage. Have you ever practiced it?

My Book Review: A Nation Gone Under – Can America Be Saved?

A Nation Gone Under

Book Title: A Nation Gone Under
Author: Robert C. Purvis IV

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under." President Ronald Reagan

Purvis is a Christian, a conservative, an author and political consultant. He has a "track record of challenging thinkers on both ends of the political and religious spectrums. With a unique message that centers on the idea that a moral rejuvenation is the only means by which to save American society, Robert challenges proponents of all ideologies to re-examine current popular thinking. Robert has a Bachelor of Science degree from Mississippi State University."

Buy A NATION GONE UNDER at Amazon or Barnes & Noble


Robert Purvis' book A NATION GONE UNDER is not only well-written but a quick read, which is ideal for busy individuals on the go. In the book, Purvis traces America's decline due to Marxist ideologies and what we need to do to save the USA and restore it to the country it deserves to be.

Of the many things I love about reading conservative books one is the authors are intelligent and fact-based over emotions. Purvis is no different. The points in his book I either learned for the first time or they were reminders of what is going on in today's American society. 

Did you know?

President Woodrow Wilson introduced the "first major deluge of socialist policies," and that he once wrote, "The trouble with the theory [of limited and divided government] is that government is not a machine, but a living thing. . . It is modified by its environment, necessitated by its tasks, shaped to its functions by the sheer pressure of life." 

A "living" interpretation of the Constitution is against the views of conservatives. We conservatives echo Carl Higbies' view in CRISIS OF CULTURE. We not only believe in but we also respect the United States Constitution and we do not consider it a "living document," as Higbie explains, that can be changed at will. We apply an "originalist philosophy" that considers the Constitution a "dead" document OR one that should not be changed.

Did you know?

Common Core, an educational initiative sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) is an initiative conservatives reject. As Purvis reported, nine years after the implementation of Common Core both ACT and SAT scores declined, and Common Core "consists of a Progressive form of education that focuses on social ideas rather than teaching actual facts of history, science, and mathematics."

When you "dumb down" individuals, it's easier for leftist politicians with a progressive agenda to control the masses.

Did you know?

TV programs such as "Friends," "Glee," "The Golden Girls," "Charlie's Angels," "Desperate Housewives," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Three's Company," and "Roseanne" contain propaganda to further a leftist political agenda. The co-creator of "Friends," for example, said she "put together a staff of mainly liberal people." The creator of "The Golden Girls," Susan Harris, said conservatives were "idiots" with "medieval minds."

Did you know?

Occupy, a progressive movement, committed more than four hundred crimes including rapes, thefts, property damage, drug abuse, etc. that the mainstream media did not report. In addition, Purvis reports that the media also failed to report the various anti-American groups that funded Occupy including Communist Party USA, American Nazi Party, Socialist Party USA, etc. Plus, individuals such as Louis Farrakhan and Barack Obama voiced support for the movement.

Did you know?

Obama's slogan "Forward" has communist and socialist roots. For example in 1904, Vladimir Lenin's Bolshevists published the first edition of  Vperyod, which means "Forward." The Italian Socialist Party, founded in 1892 and dissolved in 1994, and where Benito Mussolini was a member, had an official newspaper called Avanti, which means "Forward."

Did you know?

A huge problem for conservatives is watching spineless, weak Republicans not push back on leftist policies. When Lt. Colonel Allen West asserted that up to 81 members of the Democratic Party are members of the Communist Party, Republicans, instead of supporting West, gerrymandered West's district and prevented him from being re-elected.

These and many other points are highlighted in the book that every conservative should read. You may learn things you didn't know. Otherwise, you need to be reminded of what you already know.

My only issue with Purvis' book is his stance on homosexuality. He believes that it is eroding American family values, Christian values, and morality. My response to that is that I don't believe homosexuality is a choice, nor do I believe it's wrong. I believe in God, and I read the Bible, but I'm not a Fundamentalist Christian, and I no longer practice organized religion. 

Humans ruined my desire to attend church, not God. I will always believe in God. I grew up attending Christian churches, and my belief and faith in God, even during the worst times of my life, never left. I have been extraordinarily blessed by God, in more ways than I could ever imagine. God is good.

However, I will never believe that a homosexual is an amoral person simply for being homosexual. There are factions of the LGBT community that have given the LGBT community a bad name. For example, parts of the trans community are trying to take over the entire LGBT community with demands that will never make any sense to me.  In my mind, now and always, there are two sexes. Period. If a trans "female," for example, competes against a cis female in a sport such as cross country, I do not believe that's fair. Men and women are not the same, and becoming a trans "female" doesn't change that.

With that said, I highly recommend Purvis' book. You can read it in one sitting as he clearly lays out in succinct tight descriptions why America is at risk of becoming a nation we will no longer recognize.

I give this book - *****
