Henry Ford is widely quoted as saying, "History is bunk." What he actually said was ""History is more or less bunk." Donald Jeffries has elaborated on this theme in his new book by showing that behind what is commonly perceived these days as history is the real truth, or "Hidden History."
As he writes in his Foreword, "There is a willful desire on the part of those in positions of authority to keep the masses down, to involve us in perpetual wars, and to deny the great majority of Americans true liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Until the Internet came along, Americans had to rely on the television networks, daily newspapers, and large circulation magazines for their information. Now that there are finally true alternative sources available on the web, the dishonest nature of the mainstream media is brutally apparent. It's become almost comical to watch these relics from a bygone era continue to babble on about an absurdly restricted selection of topics, to control the tenor of debate, and transparently attempt to manipulate the public, as they were so successful in the past...In the pages that follow, you'll find an uninterrupted timeline of conspiratorial activity on the part of our leaders."
I have been an attorney for over four decades. If I were a law school professor today teaching criminal law, I would make Jeffries' "Hidden History" suggested reading supplementary to the students' mandatory assignments. Why? Because his book truly shows the world as it really it is.
Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Reagan, recently opined: "Americans are a pitifully misinformed people. All of history is a history of false flag operations.

I strongly recommend Don Jeffries' book "Hidden History" to any reader with an open mind to consider that government official verdicts of history are often lies. This concept should not be a surprise to those who have taken the care to have studied congressional investigations like the Church Committee or any of the various books written by Peter Dale Scott. The care Jeffries took in the chapter on the JFK assassination to track down the family of Secret Service Agent Henry Rybka and the care Jeffries takes to report accurately the parts of the family testimony that fail to fit into a pre-determined "conspiracy theory" (pp. 34-34) show Jeffries's motive in asking questions is first to get to the truth. Jeffries covers an intriguing range of key traumatic events in U.S. history since the JFK assassination, including Watergate and Iran-contra, to stimulate readers to make the effort to do some digging of their own. Over the next fifty years, should America manage to survive with a meaningful First Amendment in place, Jeffries deserves a place among those who have dared to expose government lies at the risk of derision from those fellow citizens who remain all too willing to believe whatever our government tells us -- a complacency that has led to the Grubers of the world remaining confident official lies are required because the people are stupid. I rest the case with this: "If you like your health insurance, you can keep it ..."

For those with a taste for modern American historical conspiracies, author Donald Jeffries serves up a full course dinner.
By their very nature, political conspiracies are difficult to decipher and even more difficult to explain. The author does
a nice job attempting to separate the wheat from the chaff. Ultimately, this book may raise more questions than it answers.
And that's a good thing.

Hidden History begins with The Mother of All Conspiracies: The Assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy
and takes the reader through the Sixties and Seventies, the administrations of Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush,
and Obama. It ends with the chapter Where Do We Stand Now?

Chronicling these events is an ambitious and difficult task, but author Jeffries manages well. Hidden History
is a compelling read and an important one. The reader will be reminded of things forgotten and undoubtedly
learn some things they didn't know.

Even those skeptical of things conspiratorial would benefit from reading Hidden History, in my opinion.

This book was an impressive compilation of all the most controversial events of the past fifty years. There was a lot of new information as well, and some things that were not so well known or that most people had forgotten. The JFK assassination was covered in depth, and I enjoyed how the author wove all the many Kennedy tragedies together. The chapter on the death of JFK, Jr was really full of shocking information.

You will find assassinations, lots of what the author calls "unnatural deaths," child sex scandals involving powerful figures, a long analysis of the Oklahoma City Bombing, Waco, 9/11, the corruption of both liberal and conservative politicians and much more in "Hidden History." I highly recommend it to everyone.

Donald Jeffries is to be highly commended for this very fine overview of many of the most famous and controversial events that occurred in America in the late 20th and early 21rst centuries. Admittedly, I bought this book (at first) "just" for the excellent chapter on the JFK assassination, but I decided to read further...I am so glad that I did. The book is quite a page-turner and is hard to put down. In particular, all the body counts, strange circumstances and "coincidences" build up so much it is difficult to chalk it all up to accidents of history, to put it quite mildly. The information on 9/11 was especially revealing for myself, as I am somewhat of a "skeptic of the skeptics". This book has made me want to delve deeper into the mysteries of 9/11; no small accomplishment, especially for the aforementioned indifference I had over a lot of what the so-called critics had come up with beforehand.

I highly recommend this well-written and compelling book to everyone!
