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."

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 - *****

My Book Review: The Trial of Roger Stone - When the Deep State Doesn't Get Its Way

The Trial of Roger Stone

Book Title: The Trial of Roger Stone
Author: Milo Yiannopoulous

When I was a liberal, I thought America was a just country.  I felt a kangaroo court system didn't exist in the U.S.A.  Now that I'm a conservative, I'm not so na├»ve.  I read books, and I get my information from other sources besides, for example, cable news. I'm sorry I didn't get a clue until I became a conservative, in my middle-age, but better late than never.  Thank you to Young Patriot Rising for recommending that I read and review THE TRIAL OF ROGER STONE.

THE TRIAL OF ROGER STONE, by Milo Yiannopoulos, angered me, just like so many other conservative books I've read, such as PROFILES IN CORRUPTION or  UNFREEDOM OF THE PRESS, angered me.  I love the United States of America, but I can't believe I live in a country where the kind of injustices, such as what was done to General Michael Flynn, happen here. All because a crooked woman didn't get her turn in the White House, and all because a bunch of other deep state swamp creatures hates President Donald Trump.

Roger Stone is a 67-year-old political consultant, a loyal Trump supporter, a fashionable dresser, and author of bestselling books, such as THE CLINTONS' WAR ON WOMEN.  He is also HATED by the left, especially the fake news leftist media.  We all remember when a S.W.A.T. team, helicopters, etc. stormed Stone's house in Fort Lauderdale to march him out in handcuffs in front of the cameras owned by fake news CNN as if he were some serial killer found after a long cold case. 

In THE TRIAL OF ROGER STONE, Milo, who was there for the trial, explains in exquisite detail why Judge Amy Berman Jackson is one of the most crooked federal judges you'll ever meet, and why the jury, composed of Trump haters such as Tomeka Hart, was stacked against Stone from the start. Says Milo, "This is about Roger Stone.  But it's also about the wretched systemic failures and wretched people in the American intelligence, law enforcement, and political establishments that some people collectively call the "deep state."

I remember when the "deep state" was universally considered a conspiracy theory, especially by leftists.  However, thanks to our great President Donald Trump, who exposed the "deep state" as very real, it is no longer a myth.  The "deep state" is a term that many conservatives now use. The players in the "deep state" such as Judge Amy Berman Jackson, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Robert Mueller, Adam Schiff, and on and on have been exposed for the snakes in the grass that they are.

Milo, a friend of Roger Stone's, is one of my favorite writers. He is an award-winning journalist and a New York Times-bestselling author. Milo is gay, proudly flamboyant, and out-of-the-closet. He is also one of the most controversial conservative figures (due to what comes out of his mouth, not because he's gay) right there along with Alex Jones.  DANGEROUS, Milo's most famous book, is one of the best books I've ever read. I couldn't put it down. I don't agree with everything Milo says, but he is a brilliant man, and he's an excellent writer. 

I learned the truth about Milo when I watched him on a Tucker Carlson episode.  I was a new conservative, and therefore, I still believed some of the bullshit spewed by leftists.  I didn't like Milo, even though I had never listened to him or read one of his books.  I had let leftists think for me concerning the entire Leslie Jones Twitter saga.

It wasn't until I watched Milo on Tucker that I realized how wrong I was.  Thankfully, today, I have become thoroughly educated about Milo. I think for myself when it comes to the 35-year-old conservative as I do with every other issue.

Anyone familiar with Milo knows he's got a mouth, which gets him in trouble. He doesn't hold back on describing Judge Jackson.

Jackson has the personality of stodgy fruit pudding and the countenance to match. She has a man's face, but a man's face left out in the sun, as though she has one of those floppy silicon serial killer masks permanently stitched to her head. She is unremarkable, frumpy, and her hair makes me gag. She comes across like a woman with no gay friends, which for a Democrat in the twenty-first century is unthinkable.  If it weren't for the three loud knocks on the door and an "All rise!" I don't think anyone would notice Amy Berman Jackson walk into a room.  Maybe that's why she became a judge, so people can't pretend they don't see her. 

OUCH!

In THE TRIAL OF ROGER STONE, Milo gives us a thorough description of how Amy Berman Jackson's courtroom was a kangaroo court from the start. "Never in my life have I sat in a courtroom and watched a put-up job unfold before my very eyes, and experienced a chill creeping down my spine as I slowly come to realize the terrifying power of a team of government lawyers determined to take someone down, whether they committed a crime or not, and how the full might of the American jurisprudential system kneels to accommodate them," says Milo.

In the book, especially near the end, Milo takes cheap shots at Trump, a cheap shot at Turning Point U.S.A., etc.  Milo is the kind of person who likes attention.  So I think he's angrier that nobody on the right gives him that attention, at least not anymore. He's been, unjustly, banned from all the major social media platforms; he's not invited to major conservative events (such as the social media summit at the White House), and no prominent conservative ever talks about him.  Milo is, as I said earlier, controversial.  So he's basically persona non grata.  In other words, Milo is bad for business, and that's a chance you take when you're incredibly controversial. 

That said, I do agree with Milo, 100 percent, that President Trump must pardon Roger Stone. On February 20, 2020, Stone was sentenced to 40 months in federal prison. According to Milo, the Stone family has lost their home, their savings, and their life insurance, all because he refused to give the deep state what they wanted. This kind of shit should never happen in America, but it does.

Perhaps Trump is waiting until he's re-elected to pardon Stone.  I don't know. But I learned a long time ago to trust Trump. He knows what he's doing. He'll pardon Roger Stone at the right time.


I give this book - ****
