Okay, it's a great story. It's told with the right amount of inflection and tone. But after seeing the movie adaptation, I felt that what was left out in the movie actually improved the entire experience. Still awesome though.

Americans didn’t just go to the polls in 2016. They joined a movement that swept the unlikeliest of candidates, Donald Trump, into the Oval Office. Can he complete his agenda? Or will his opponents in the media, protester class, and political establishment block his efforts and choke off the movement he represents?

As a retired journalist, I really enjoyed the entire synopsis. Accurate, and sums up why I changed fields as soon as I was able to. Even if you want to get the facts right first, the owners want to be first regardless of the facts AND they force their opinion to be sold.

In this full-cast production of the classic pulp novel, The Shadow investigates as, one by one, the partners in a chemical company die mysterious deaths. The plot of Partners of Peril and much of the action is almost identical to "The Case of the Chemical Syndicate", the very first Batman story in Detective Comics #27, which appeared some years later.

To take a skeptical approach to American history is not to dabble in imaginative conspiracy theories; rather, it's to reframe your understanding of this great nation's past and actually strengthen your appreciation for what makes American history such a fascinating chapter in the larger story of Western civilization. And in this bold 24-lecture series, you can do just that.

With pundits asking, "How did he win?" this book explores whether there was a supernatural element involved. Christian leaders prophesied before the election that God had raised up Donald Trump to lead the nation through a time of crisis. But could this billionaire reality-TV star actually convince the voters he was for real? If so, what is God doing now, not only in Donald's Trump's life, but also in the life of the nation?

Great insight into the Christian support of President Trump. As a Roman Catholic, I found the epilog extremely interesting, but also the entire read.

Is Trump perfect? No. And there is no attempt to portray him that way. But more importantly, does God choose imperfect people to accomplish His will? Absolutely. David, Paul, Peter, and Sampson are only a few imperfect examples in the Bible.
