What is "the big lie" of the Democratic Party? That conservatives - and President Donald Trump in particular - are fascists. Nazis, even. In a typical comment, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow says the Trump era is reminiscent of "what it was like when Hitler first became chancellor." But in fact, this audacious lie is a complete inversion of the truth. Yes, there is a fascist threat in America - but that threat is from the Left and the Democratic Party.

  • Atomic Awakening

The American public's introduction to nuclear technology was manifested in destruction and death. With Hiroshima and the Cold War still ringing in our ears, our perception of all things nuclear is seen through the lens of weapons development. Nuclear power is full of mind-bending theories, deep secrets, and the misdirection of public consciousness - some deliberate, some accidental. The result of this fixation on bombs and fallout is that the development of a non-polluting, renewable energy source stands frozen in time.

Inspirational. Mr. Mahaffey tells an honest and realistic story of nuclear energy, sharing in its glorious achievements while not neglecting when things have gone wrong. Thank you for writing this James!

Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world's most innovative scientists, here shows the ways in which science is being constricted by assumptions that have, over the years, hardened into dogmas. Such dogmas are not only limiting, but dangerous for the future of humanity. According to these principles, all of reality is material or physical; the world is a machine, made up of inanimate matter; nature is purposeless; consciousness is nothing but the physical activity of the brain; free will is an illusion; and God exists only as an idea in human minds.

So upon reading this I remained a skeptic - as it took me about a month to listen to this audio book, but I kept going onward.
My own personal disagreement with the author is when he comments on Israel and the Palestinians. It was biased, and a common view, that I know to be historically wrong.
However with that aside, his book was well done. It opened my eyes to the materialist views that had influenced me to a certain degree. I like his honesty in presenting this work, and I would like to meet him. The scientific community needs a more unbiased approach to research like this.

  • The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels

For decades environmentalists have told us that using fossil fuels is a self-destructive addiction that will destroy our planet. Yet by every measure of human well-being, from life expectancy to clean water to climate safety, life has been getting better and better. How can this be? The explanation is that we usually hear only one side of the story. We're taught to think only of the negatives of fossil fuels, their risks and side effects, but not their positives.

Is the man Trump should have appointed over the EPA. He could end all of the wasted money on campaigning Al Gore's global warming, if he ever ran for a political office, I wouldn't hesitate to vote for him! Very intelligent man.
