Thank you to the publisher of 63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read, Skyhorse Publishing, for providing me with a copy of this book for review.

Unfortunately, in most cases his conclusions simply don't follow from the documents he presents, and in some cases are outright contradicted by them.

This book is a head turner. The topics covered will make your hair stand on end like it was electrified. Jesse Ventura has clearly set out to become the national conscience of our country. He feels compelled to attempt to expose truth everywhere he finds falsehoods being disseminated. There is one thing we can be certain of and that is that our government has been spreading lies by distortion, falsehoods, and deleing material facts for as long as we have been a country. This is entirely not unexpected since the first rule of government; any government is to preserve itself in power.

Ventura has been a former in your face governor of Minnesota, and I found him to be a breath of fresh air whether I agreed with him or not. Dick Russell has written more than a half dozen books, most of which have been about conspiracy and several in particular about the JFK assassination. I have found him to be forthright as well. The book is organized into 63 separate files spread through five different themes. Those themes are:

Part I Our Scandalous Postwar History

Part II Government, Military, and Corporate Secrets

Part III Shady White Houses

Part IV 9/11

Part V The War on Terror

You can see from the above the different conspiracies that are being covered, to determine whether or not you as a reader would have a particular interest in reading about these specific areas. I am personally familiar with more than 90% of the documents in the book, having read many of them in their original format. By the way, the documents you will be looking at are photocopies of the originals. This is both good and bad. It is bad from the standpoint that the fonts, writing, and formatting of the document may make it difficult to read.

Did you know that our government planned on intentionally killing our own soldiers and civilians to falsely justify an invasion of Cuba? That led to President Kennedy's firing of the General who was the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. That came on the heels of "SIOP-62"; the "Single Integrated Operational Plan" was an actual military proposal for the total nuclear annihilation of the entire Communist bloc in 1962. It was formally presented to President Kennedy as a recommendation and he was so furious that he literally stormed out of the meeting in disgust.
Understanding our history is vital because informing us of the near catastrophes of the past also helps us avoid them going forward. So if you think that "false flag" attacks and the rounding up of innocent citizens are the realm of overzealous "conspiracy theorists," then this book is a very important heads-up.

In "63 Documents," Ventura & Russell team up successfully again in a no-holds-barred exposé of government corruption:

#1: Links between past government perpetrations and today's political agendas, such as the CIA's Secret Assassination Manual: "Maybe they should change the name to the CIA's 'Secret First Degree Murder Manual.' How is it that we are allowed to kill other people if we're not in a declared war with them?"

#2: Delves into a series of government, military, and corporate secrets. Many veterans of the first Gulf War suffer adverse health conditions, yet the government denies the validity of Gulf War Syndrome. "What's it going to take for our leaders to consider the real cost of these endless wars?"

#3: A history of "shady" White Houses. Including an internal war "between Nixon and Richard Helms, director of the CIA...

The whole point of this book is that all the documents are in the public domain. Of course if you are a government worshiping goon, aka republican or democrat, then ignore all the facts, just like the Germans ignored the facts about Hitler, just like the Russians ignored all the facts about Stalin, Italy and Mussolini, China and Mao, etc.

The facts are irrefutable, evil people are, and have been, part of the the American government, just as the were in 1776 as part of England and all governments. The founding fathers knew this and gave us the constitution to combat these evil control freaks. Jesse brings admitted facts to the public because knowledge is the first step in retaining freedom.

63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read by Jesse Ventura is a must read book for every American. These aren't unfound "conspiracies" in this book. It features 63 documents that you can look up for yourself and read in full to see the truth for yourself.

63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read is a book that may have you start questioning the government, if you haven't already started to do so.

Jesse Ventura writes the intro to the documents as he would explain about them on his show Conspiracy Theories. This sets the tone for what you are about to read in the government document for that chapter.

This isn't an anti-America book. Ventura loves his country, but the shady practices going on with the government isn't something he could just ignore. He is a voice for the people, and in these times we need that more than ever. Someone actually willing to stand up for us and let us know what is going on.

The book is divided into five categories:
* Our Scandalous Postwar History
* Government, Military, and Corporate Secrets
* Shady White Houses
* 9/11
* The "War on Terror"

Each of the categories featured have documents that should be read by everyone. Some of my favorites from the book include: U.S. Capabilities in Chemical and Biological Warfare, Putting War Criminals to Work in America, Gulf War Illness and our Veterans, "Emergency" Detention Camps and Civilian Inmate Labor Program, and An Internet "Kill Switch"?

I highly recommend this book to everyone reading this right now. The time for us to be silent and oblivious to these things is over. Read this book ASAP!
