    Millions of people have thrilled to best-selling authors Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, works of nonfiction that have changed the way we view history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. Nearly 2,000 years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    What did you love best about Killing Kennedy?

    The way it was presented. How it went into the background of all the main players in the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    JFK because he was put in whole different light than I remember him. I was only 21 at the time and thought he was the greatest president in the world at the time. I still see many good things about him but see him in a whole different light now.


    Which character – as performed by Bill O'Reilly – was your favorite?

    still JFK


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Killing Of JFK as never before told


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is a must read for all. It is full of history that most of us probably do not know. We will never know if this was a lone gunman or part of a conspiracy

    Judicial Watch, America's largest nonpartisan government watchdog, has investigated the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. Judicial Watch is the group that helped impeach Bill Clinton and took the Bush White House secrecy all the way up to the Supreme Court. Since the beginning of the Obama administration, this grassroots group has filed over 700 open records demands and dozens of lawsuits, including a successful fight over the secret Obama White House visitor logs.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes. This book is very enlightening about our government and how corrupt it really is.This is what I would expect of a third world country . But I guess I had more faith in ours.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The way the banking bail out went. was really quit a corrupt deal. This bail out really had nothing to do with us the people. After listening to this I firmly believe that those banks that had to should have been left to file bankruptcy. The Government having control of the banks is bull. The blackmail if the banks do not go along is unbelievable. But true.


    What about Jim Meskimen’s performance did you like?

    He reads very well his emphasis on certain words or sentences are very good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no. very deep had to keep playing over and over so I could absorb it all. But very good and I highly recommend everyone listen to this over and over.


    Any additional comments?

    only that getting information under the freedom of information act is such a joke that it almost seems worthless. They can dodge forever before they ever hand over the info and then you have to sue to get the part they deliberately leave out and it takes years to get it.

    Few politicians have risen to national prominence as quickly as Marco Rubio. At age 41 he's the subject of widespread interest and speculation. But he has never before told the full story. His U.S. Senate campaign started as an extreme long shot against Florida's popular incumbent governor, Charlie Crist. Undaunted by the early poll numbers and the time away from his wife and kids, Rubio traveled the state with his message of empowerment and optimism. He upset Crist in both the primary and a dramatic three-way general election.

    If you could sum up An American Son in three words, what would they be?

    1)Heartwarming 2)Inspiring 3)Motivational


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marco Rubio. He just proves to me haw anyone can achieve the American dream if they just put their mind too it and accept the things that come your way without complaining and move on to the next step.We all have stumbling blocks along the way but we need to figure out our next step and move on without whining . Very inspirational man.


    Have you listened to any of Marco Rubio’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First one I've listened too. He is very good reader.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many. I think his love and respect for his family especially his grandfather.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has really made me see Marco Rubio as a perfect example of a person who is living the American dream and has not lost sight of his humble beginnings. Really respect this man.

  • No, They Can't: Why Government Fails - But Individuals Succeed

    The government is not a neutral arbiter of truth. It never has been. It never will be. Doubt everything. John Stossel does. A self-described skeptic, he has dismantled society's sacred cows with unerring common sense. Now he debunks the most sacred of them all: our intuition and belief that government can solve our problems. In No, They Can't, the New York Times best-selling author and Fox News commentator insists that we discard that idea of the "perfect" government - left or right - and retrain our brain to look only at the facts, to rethink our lives as independent individuals - and fast.

    What did you love best about No, They Can't?

    learning what is really happening in the government and all of their regulations.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    learning how the average American really thinks. it is hard to believe how many people ( what a large %)really think that government is the one to solve all our problems.


    Have you listened to any of John Stossel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no. But he did a good job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the whole book keep my ear glued to the speakers.


    Any additional comments?

    i think every American should listen to or read this book it is very interesting. Not sure I agree with every thing Mr. Stossel believes but pretty damn close.We just need government to protect our borders and police our cities. We don't need them in our schools and such.

    It’s amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times best-selling author Edward Klein in his political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public’s growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama’s toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.

    Where does The Amateur rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    # 1 right behind Tim russet. Don't remember the name of the book but Tim narrated it himself and it was a really good listen. About his life with his father and his career on TV.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Amateur?

    The whole book it was an eye opener. Every chapter had a memorable moment. I keep listening to it over and over.


    Have you listened to any of John McLain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this is the first.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a must read or listen to all Americans. John McClain does a very good job reading.
