    Indie Books #88 (Michael Williamson)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 


    Author Michael Williamson joins me this week to talk about his book: Secret Betrayal and more.


    The desperate act of a young girl, on the cusp of womanhood, to lose herself in the mean streets and cabarets of 1930s Berlin, and years later, the disappearance of a key American general shortly before D-Day in 1944 are links in an ingenious plot to gain the secrets of the Allied invasion.


    Through a series of traumatic events Reichsletter Martin Bormann, the man more than any other that truly ran the German government toward the end of World War II, sets in motion a deadly gambit that ricochets across half the world and gains Bormann possession of the Normandy invasion plans. In the double dealing, back stabbing chaos that was the Nazi inner circle, this climactic information is the currency that will buy Bormann the one thing that he has desired above all others: the right to be the next Fuhrer.


    So unfolds the dynamic pages of Secret Betrayal. This novel is a testament to the redemptive power of love, the evolutionary power of kundalini yoga and the war within a war waged by Reichsletter Martin Bormann and Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler for the mind of and influence over Adolf Hitler.

    White Girl Bleed A Lot - Colin Flaherty

    in Politics Conservative

    Racial tension and violence in the Black community is at an all time high.  People of all races are scared and also tired of not feeling safe in their own neighborhoods.  Recent acts of violence, riots, and murders have set us all on edge.


    Today I am honored to have as my guest Colin Flaherty.


    Colin Flaherty is an award winning reporter and author of the #1 best selling book White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it.


    His new book is Knockout Game a Lie? Aww, Hell No.


    Both books are about black mob violence, black on white crime and the Knockout Game.


    His  work has appeared in more than 1000 news sites around the world, including the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine.  His story about how a black man was unjustly convicted of trying to kill his white girlfriend resulted in his release from state prison and was featured on Court TV, NPR, The Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union-Tribune.


    Thomas Sowell: ”Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities.” – National Review.


    Sean Hannity: White Girl Bleed a Lot  “has gone viral.”


    Allen West: “At least author Colin Flaherty is tackling this issue (of racial violence and black on white crime) in his new book, White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it.“


    Los Angeles Times: “a favorite of conservative voices.”
