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.

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.

This is a fabulous book that dispels many myths about Jefferson and it's well sourced and backed up by good information and resources. I highly recommend it and encourage you to discuss Jefferson with others so they to become educated about what this tremendous man did and believed

Despite was is currently being said about Hillary Clinton, Thomas Jefferson was probably the most qualified person to ever be elected president. This complex man can not be understood completely by either conservatives or liberals. David Barton does a superb job researching Thomas Jefferson. The book is filled with endnotes to back up all of Barton's claims. Jefferson was an ever evolving man, and Barton includes how Jefferson's relationship with organized religion and Christianity had changed toward the end of his life.

The reviews of this book here are as instructive as reading the book itself. Each example given in the book as to how the left tries to distort and rewrite history is on display. One takeaway is that despite the brilliance of the founders, the Constitution that has enabled America's greatness cannot be maintained without continued effort.
