  • Death of a Nation

  • Plantation Politics and the Making of the Democratic Party
  • By: Dinesh D'Souza
  • Narrated by: Dinesh D'Souza

Who is killing America? Is it really Donald Trump and a GOP filled with white supremacists? In this audiobook, Dinesh D’Souza makes the provocative case that Democrats are the ones killing America by turning it into a massive nanny state modeled on the Southern plantation system. Death of a Nation's bracing alternative vision of American history explains the Democratic Party's dark past, reinterprets the roles of figures like Van Buren, FDR, and LBJ, and exposes the hidden truth that racism comes not from Trump or the conservative right but rather from Democrats.

I love how in depth he dives into topics and how thoroughly he researches them.

The well-known and acclaimed work of Dr. Joseph Lumpkin has been enlarged to include new research on the Books of Enoch, Fallen Angels, the Watchers, and the Nephilim. After presenting extensive historical backgrounds and brilliant translations of The First, Second, and Third Books of Enoch, Lumpkin takes time to piece together a historical narrative of Fallen Angels, the Watcher, and the Nephilim, using his extensive knowledge of ancient texts.

The book itself is great and the commentary and insight is good too. But the reader is excruciatingly slow, it's painful to listen to at times. The whole book is like some suspense drama with no build up or climax, just a very slow ultra serious monotone

  • Our Occulted History

Best-selling author and legendary conspiracy researcher Jim Marrs, who has investigated the recent financial crisis, the JFK assassination, and the national socialist takeover of America, now takes on his biggest subject: the history of mankind. Offering mind-blowing information that will radically alter the way we think about the world and our place in it, Marrs goes beyond the revelations of his classic Alien Agenda, interweaving science and authentic archaeological finds with provocative speculation to show how human civilization may have originated with nonhumans who visited earth eons ago.

Great book. The performance is a little over the top sometimes, and the mispronounciation of some names and places is noticeable, however, it doesn't take anything away from the book in my opinion.

Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared....

Great story, well written. I believe the narrarator did good, and maybe because of the way the book was written, didn't allow for much emphasis and performance per say. Very subdued and melancholy. Regardless, very good listen.
