Buy it on Kindle. It makes it easy to cut and past any of the 100s of footnotes per chapter and check them. Yup there true. Yes the book is factual.
What we learned in school and from the media was a lie.

I checked and of the 180 1 star reviews 8 of them are verified purchases. I think that says a lot.

David Barton always makes history interesting even when having to fight against mainstream academics who attempt to revise history to fit their progressive agenda. David Barton uses original documents to argue against these revisionist progressives who can't fight against the founders own documents. I have high praise for David Barton, he may not sit in an ivory tower, but he is a powerful advocate for accurate history.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Gramsci's "long march through the institutions" has almost been completed by the cultural-marxist left...almost. There are still men such as David Barton who will take on the academic left and expose the lies they tell.

Such is the case with David Barton's latest work: "The Jefferson Lies" in which he completely debunks the lies that the last few generations have been taught in American "education".

Mr. Barton explodes the deliberate lies invented by the left in academia as well as showing the tools used to distort, change or simply replace history with lies made of whole cloth such as my personal favorite "Deconstructionism. The lies David Barton takes on are: Jefferson fathered a child by slave Sally Hemmings, Jefferson founded a purely secular university, Jefferson wrote an essentially atheist Bible, jefferson was a racist, Jefferson advocated a secular government and public square (the old "separation of church and state" lie), and that Jefferson hated the clergy and was an atheist.

The author recounts the momentous announcement that DNA evidence "proved" Jefferson fathered children by Sally Hemmings, hailed by the left, while showing the DNA testing actually only proved that one of twenty-seven Jefferson males could have fathered a child by her. The child most researchers accused Jefferson of fathering showed no genetic link to any Jefferson male - period!

Mr. Barton shows how the academic left lies through their teeth by quoting snippets of Jefferson's writings while the author reproduces them, in many cases, in their entirety to show how Jefferson's words were taken out of context or simply twisted.

Don't trust a liberal. They lie and distort the truth about Jefferson. The man was a hero and a patriot! A man of his time.

Learn the truth that the left doesn't want you to know. They try to tear down Jefferson so they can tear down the Constitution. You are a true patriot David Barton

In an era where the founders have to be torn down for political expediency, it's great to have someone carry forward the respect we used to be taught.
