But he lost me when it came to the end of book 2 and his songs in praise of the Clintons. James Carville driving a Clorox truck couldn't have done a bigger white-wash job. It's embarrassing what this "historian" chooses to remember, chooses to forget, or chooses not to even investigate regarding Bonnie and Clyde Clinton. This is not the forum to catalog their many dirty deeds. Besides, if I did so Amazon would probably trash my entire review; I speak from experience.
Lest anyone accuse me of being a Republican apologist, let me say I think the Bush family is even dirtier, if only because they've been practicing politics far longer.
Although he should know better by now, sometimes Lavenda's mind returns to the left-right paradigm - which has been drilled into all of us. It's time to wake up, people! The same moneyed power elite control both parties, the politicians, Wall Street, the mainstream media, most of the judges, etc. Lavenda is reviling the right hand puppet and adoring the left hand puppet. Get a clue, both hands belong to the same puppet master! Unless you understand that, Mr. Lavenda, your insights are about as useful as those of the overpaid George Stephanopoulos.
I did enjoy the in-depth study about the many splinter groups of Islam over the centuries. Peter is on point when he says that Americans have never been informed or given pause to learn about Islamic history. Maybe because the West always needs its Boogeyman painted in broad terms. Anyway, off I go.
On the issue of Christ's death and ressurection, while I can share a lot of his disappointments with christianity and churches including the Catholic Church, I wish Levanda would, at a minimum, conclude, as he does so often on other controversial subjects, that "the jury is still out" on the matter. Especially when the message we hear in much of the current culture seems to be, oh let's get this old story over with already - and they would only be too happy if that were the case ; if they were so sure, and if they are right, though, why are those people so dark and why the compulsion to play the witch? Especially, moreover, when there's a lot of evidence from modern research, from academics and laboratories all over the world, that points to the actuality of Jesus Christ's death and ressurection. A richly detailed account of this evidence can be found in the recent biography of Jesus by respected French historian Jean-Christian Petitfils (available on Amazon France).
Second, as other reviewers note, at times the Right seems to get most of the flack when it comes to suspicions of dark designs or inspiration, justified as that may be, while the Left gets a free pass. In addition to what others have referred to about American politics, let me invite the author again in this case to look across the Atlantic at French history. From the Revolution to Victor Hugo to Mitterrand, the Left has been up to its neck in occultism. It is a joke of sorts that these people claim to be atheists and promote the secular State.
[Edit: moved rating up from 3 to 5 stars]
Lavenda is amazingly well-read. But I started thinking Book 2 was somewhat superficial, a summarizing of the research & conclusions from the works he has surveyed. He makes many amazingly clarifying connections between dates and historical events. There is no doubt that these are truly unusual synchronicities and coincidences. To the point that I began to doubt that there could really be this many bizarre coincidences.
And then, while I was reading Book 2, the date of Osama bin Laden's death, May 1, was reported on the evening news to be the same date as the announcement of Adolph Hitler's death. That event alone proves Lavenda's point. His many, many points.
