Family of Secrets

By Russ Baker

From the Inside Cover:

The Bush Dynasty, the powerful forces that put it in the White House, and what their influence means for America.

Family of Secrets reveals that what most of us believe about the Bush Dynasty is only a fragment of a larger reality. Indeed, the same forces that put Bush-Cheney into power are still very much at work, exerting a stealthy dominance over the mechanisms of democracy, regardless of who occupies the White House.

Award-winning investigative journalist Russ Baker lays out in compelling detail the untold story of how a network of financiers, oilmen, and intelligence operatives shaped the political careers of two presidents Bush- and what the Bushes did for them in return.


The End of Oil:
On the Edge of a Perilous New World

By Paul Roberts

From the Inside Cover:

Petroleum is now so deeply entrenched in our economy, our politics, and our personal expectations that even modest efforts to phase it out are fought tooth and nail by the most powerful forces in the world: companies and governments that depend on oil revenues; the developing nations that see oil as the only means to industrial success; and a Western middle class that refuses to modify its energy dependent lifestyle.

But within thiry years, by even conservative estimates, we will have burned our way through most of the oil that is easily accessible. And well before then [like, NOW] the side effects of an oil based society - economic voliatility, geopolitical conflict, and the climate chhanging impact of hydrocarbon pollution - will render fossil fuels an all but unacceptable solution.

How will we break oour addiction to oil? And what will we use in its place to maintaon a global economy and political system that are entirely reliant on cheap, redily available energy?



The Fluoride Deception

By Christopher Bryson

From the Inside Cover:

The Fluoride Deception unearths the mystery of how a grim workplace poison and the most damaging environmental pollutant of the cold war was added to our drinking water and toothpaste.

A chronicle of abuse of power and of the manufacture of stste-sponsored medical propaganda, The Fluoride Deception reveals how a secretive group of powerful industries, all of which faced extensive litigation for fluoride pollution, collaborated with officials from the National Institute of Dental Research to launder fluoride's public image.



American Dynasty

By Kevin Phillips

This book is the best one to date detatiling the enormity of the Bush family's blood thursty drive to power by slavishly protecting their insestual business interests in the Petroleum, Banking, Espianage, and Weapons manufacturing industries.

Simply put, the Bush family and their business partners have made their fortunes but giving Third World dictators like Saddam Hussain and the Saudis weapons in exchange for cheap oil and lucrative industrial contracts (anybody heard of Halliburton, Bechtel, and GE) who regularly work with tyrants to oppress the local population and keep raw materials cheap.)

(and Bin Laden and Hitler, to name a few of their more well known "strategic partners")



House of Bush, House of Saud:
The Secret Relationship Between the World's Two Most Powerful Dynasties

By Craig Unger

As the real depths and ramifications of the Bush-Saudi Co oil-dependancey begins to break through the Mass Media blackout and see the light of day. Like a house of cards beneath the dancing feet of Satan on a crystal-meth bender, the absurd fiction of "Bush as Messianc Savior" is crumbling faster than than all the kings spin meisters and propgandists can repair.

The fact is: Most of these facts have been in the public record for decades (including the Bush familie's role in the illegal rebuilding of the Nazi military before WWII and their remarkable similar rolecreating the latest boogy man Saddam Hussein.

(Some of you may be asking 'what ever happened to Bin Laden'. . .
you people will be quietly escorted to the door and never seen again.)



Dude, Where's My Country?

By Michael Moore

Love him or hate him, Michael Moore is here to kick ass and take names. More importantly, he gives us the facts, tells us who was involved, and lets us decide for ouselves if we want to start kicking ass, or keep getting screwed.

This carefully documented book makes it abundatly clear that the current unelected administration should be removed from office and hung from the nearest power pole for treason.

If you believe that a real working Democracy depends on a well informed population, then do the country a favor and start informing yourself by reading this book.



The Crime and Punishment of IG Farben

By Joseph Borkin

Did Hitler simply seize power through a few inspirational speeches, or did he use fear, intimidation, and a well funded propaganda campaign (backed by wealthy industrialists who thought Fascism would be a great way to boost the bottom line) to drive his country into war?

The story of IG Farben is an Enron executive's wet dream. IG Farben was the German industrial monopoly that turned the once Democratic Germany into a tool for terror and global domination simply because it was good for business.

Mussolini said, "Fascism, should more apropriately be called Corporateism, because it is the merger of State and Corporate Power." But more to the point, Fascism is great for the bottom line. Especially if your Business is war.

If you've never heard of IG Farben, then the real story of Hitler's rise to power and the Military Industrial Complex that backed him may come as a shock. Especially given the paralels and connections between the administrations of both President's Bush who were backed by many of the same people and corporations that backed Hitler.

Upon reflection, the fact that the Bush family and their business partners helped finance the rise of Hitler is hardly a surprise given former head of the CIA George H. W. Bush's lifelong efforts to arm and finance fundamentalist right-wing dictatorships throughout the world. (Need I mention Saddam Hussein, Bin Laden's Mujhadin, the Contras, and Saudi Arabia?)



SECRETS:
A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers

By Daniel Ellsberg

Considering Bush Junta's maniacal drive toward war, some of you may be wondering how the Benevolent Machine of Media and Government could be used to start a war on the other side of the world by lying to congress, ignoring public opinion, and compounding the massive fraud by sticking American tax payers with the bill.

Some of you might also remember that it's all happened before. He who does not learn from history is doomed to repeat it.



Trading With The Enemy:
The Nazi-American Money Plot

By Charles Higham

If you've heard anything about the Bush administration's habit of doing business with terrorists, arms dealers, and drug dealers, you might find it interesting to know that treason and trading with the enemy are a long and lucrative tradition for the Bush family and their business partners.

As if training and financing the rise of Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, Manuel Noriega, and the Contras (while rigging the Florida election and collapsing a few Savings and Loans) weren't enough, Grandpa Prescott Bush also helped the giants of American industry rebuild the Nazi war machine and built the family fortune on that terror and bloodshed.

Prescott Bush, and his lawyers the Dulles brothers, did everything in their power to merge their clients (Standard Oil, ITT, Ford, GM, Dupont, and GE to name a few) with the German Industrial Combine IG Farben, in an elaborate plan to divide the world's resources and markets under a Fascist Oligarchy led by the business leaders of the day (themselves).

For those who haven't heard a definition of Fascism lately, I refer to Benito Mussilini (who should know): "Fascism should more appropriately be called 'Corporatism' because it is the merger of State and Corporate power."

Read up kids, history repeats itself . Everything old is new again. . .



George Bush:
The Unauthorized Biography

By Webster G. Tarpley and Anton Chaitkin
(Available on-line)

From the Introduction:

The volume which we submit herewith to the court of world public opinion is, to the best of our knowledge, the first and only book- length, unauthorized biography of George Bush. It is the first approximation of the truth about his life. This is the first biography worthy of the name, a fact that says a great deal about the sinister power and obsessive secrecy of this personage. None of the other self-announced biographies (including Bush's campaign autobiography) can be taken seriously; each of these books is a pastiche of lies, distortions and banalities that run the gamut from campaign panegyric to the Goebbels Big Lie to fake but edifying stories for credulous children. Almost without exception, the available Bush literature is worthless.



Addicted to War:
Why the U.S. Can't Kick Militarism

An Illustrated Exposé
By Joel Andreas

"The U.S., with 4.5% of the world's population, arrogantly plunders the world's resources and cultures tp support its American Way Of Life. Addicted to War illustrates why the U.S. in NECESSARILY dependent upon war to feed its shameful consumption patterns."

-S. Brian Willson, Vietnam veteran and anti-war activist

If pictures say 1000 words, this book says more than a shelf of encyclopedias about Corporate America's Blood-Lust Diplomacy.



Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace:
How we got to be so hated

By Gore Vidal

From the back cover:
The United States has been engaged in what the great historian Charles A. Beard called "perpetual war for perpetual peace." The Federation of American Scientists has catalogued nearly two hundred military incursions since 1945 in which the United States has been the aggressor. In a series of penetrating and alarming essays, whose centerpiece is a commentary on the events of September 11,2001 (deemed too controversial to be published in America until now), Gore Vidal challenges the comforting consensus following both September 11th and Timothy McVeigh's bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City: these were simply the act of "evil-doers".



Barry & 'the boys':
The CIA, The Mob and America's Secret History

By Danial Hopsicker

"This is the story of Barry Seal, the biggest drug smuggler in American history, who died in a hail of bullets with George Bush's private phone number in his wallet. . ."

So begins this mindblowing book on the deep and sordid history of American "counterintelligence" and the secret wars for guns, drugs, and oil played out by a revolving cast of politicians and businessmen since World War II.

It seems the CIA's primary job since its creation has been the arming, training, and financing of right-wing dictators who protect our oil, but later become our "NEW WORST ENEMY!" Ever heard of Saddam Hussein? Manuel Noriega? Fidel Castro? Augusto Pinochet? Ho Chi Minh? Or the terrorist breeding-ground of Saudi Arabia? George Bush's CIA knows them well, as this book shows, they go WAY BACK.

With friends like these, who needs enemies?



Whiteout:
The CIA, Drugs and the Press

By Alexander Cockburn & Jeffrey St. Clair

If the CIA and FBI have recently been dedicated to protecting the people of America, it begs the question of what exactly they were doing before this momentous change in assignment. In the case of the CIA, the Agency's information analysis mission has been dwarfed by its "Counter Intelligence" mission. From assassinations and rigging elections, to protecting "National Security" by supplying right-wing extremists with weapons and training them to export drugs and terrorize the local peasants, the CIA has always been happy to ignore our constitution and turn the definition of Democracy on its head.

This book is a clear and concise overview of what the CIA has been doing all these years while claiming to protect the people of America. If you like to bury your head in the sand and ignore the facts, this is not the book for you.



The Mafia, CIA & George Bush:
The Untold Story of America's Greatest Financial Debacle

By Pete Brewton

If you think Enron is a one-of-a-kind accident, you might want to research on the long forgotten Savings and Loan Scandal. As the long history of corporate-backed corruption in our political system becomes more undeniable each day and confused congressmen wander through the halls of congress asking aloud 'how could this happen?' perhaps now is a good time to take another look at the last major political/corporate scandal that allowed the Bush family and their business partners to use our government to steal our tax money and destroy the lives of countless Americans.



Stupid White Men

By Michael Moore

This fantastic book asks, and answers, many of the ignored questions about the brave new world of El Presidenté Bush. The fact that this book is number one on the New York Times Bestsellers List raises some questions about George W. Bush's much repeated "80% approval ratings." The fact that Mr. Moore can't get any media attention for his book by the "Liberal Media" also raises some interesting questions when we see the conservative book "Bias" all over our air waves.

We can always count on the Corporate owned Mass Media to warn us about the "Liberal Press" when they don't feel like discussing the real issues.



Blinded By The Right

By David Brock

When Hillary Clinton spoke of a "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" to destroy the Clinton administration, the "Liberal Media" unanimously declared her a paranoid nut case. Now that one of the conspirators has come forward to explain step-by-step how that right-wing conspiracy truly operated, the corporate conservative lapdogs don't seem to be laughing so hard.

Then again, the fact that many of those same conservative conspirators now fill prized positions in the Bush administration could mean the last laugh is on us.



The Emperor Wears No Clothes:
Cannabis and the Conspiracy Against Marijuana

By Jack Herer

This is the book that almost single-handedly revived the Hemp movement in America. Every page of Jack Herer's classic book is filled with information and historical documentation about the demonized weed Marijuana. From USDA documents to congressional records, this is the place to start if you want to understand the history, evolution, and prohibition of Hemp as a renewable natural resource.



The Politics of Heroin:
CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade

By Alfred W. McCoy

Despite the decades old rhetoric propping up our $50 billion a year "War on Drugs" the Federal government has once again become "close partners" with an opium growing group of psychopaths. From Vietnam's Golden Triangle to Afghanistan's Northern Alliance, the history of the CIA training, funding, arming and protecting terrorist Drug Lords is long and well documented. This book is for everybody who still believes that selling weapons to murderers is simply "one of the down sides to using 'unsavory characters' in our war on Terrorism."



The Secret War Against the Jews:
How Western Espionage Betrayed the Jewish People.

By John Loftus and Mark Aarons.

If I could only recommend one book to someone who wanted to understand the current situation in the Middle East, The Secret War Against the Jews would be at the top of my list. This expertly researched and carefully footnoted book explains in detail the basis of American foreign policy since World War II with brilliant clarity. To sum it up: Our corrupt politicians pretend to support Israel and "Democracy" while secretly funding, arming, and training Arab fundamentalists to protect corporate access to cheap oil.



Day of Deceit:
The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor

By Robert B. Stinnet

Robert Stinnet's Day of Deceit is a fascinating and timely book that should hold a high place in the library of anybody interested in the truth behind American history. Through more than 10 years of research on declassified files surrounding the Pearl Harbor Attack, Stinnet shows without question that FDR and his top advisors not only knew about the Japanese "sneak" attack, but in fact, caused it to happen in order to push the American people into the war.
