I have a new pile of books to read. I am reading Donkey Cons that starts out with the preponderance of corrupt Democrats. This is hardly surprising in that the parties
coalition includes inherently corrupt labor unions, inner city political machines, trial lawyers, Communists masking themselves as activists and Media airheads.
I also have betrayal by David Pryce Jones. Pan Arabism is a mostly French Socialist creation nutured by the Soviets. This is quite amusing given the flat earth theories by some on Sonia's site. Commies see Saddam as the CIA's man armed with stacks of Soviet Weaponry and thousands of Soviet advisors. The fact remains that the roots of the BAATH party are in the Fwench Socialist Party.
I also have Dore Gold's The Fight For Jerusalem. The real story of how the Dome of the Rock ended up on the site of the Jewish Temple is there. Jerusalem is not in the Koran and the translation of the furthest Mosque was part of a political fight. Muslims placing Mosques on the sacred sites of other religons is a historical fact.
I also have Zell Miller's A National Party No More and David Limbaugh's Bankrupt.
I am in chapter five of Donkey Cons. The history of Democrat debacles includes Aron Burr. Burr combines the Kennedy gift for homicide with the treason of John Kerry. All he needs is some alternative lifestyle scandals and he could be a God in MA.
The connection between inner city political machines and organized crime is explored
in detail. The book touches on the role of the NY Democratic party in the now forgotten infamous draft riots in NYC portrayed in the Gangs of NY.
I like the quote of Charles Schumer to a government witness exploring Union mob activity. " Are space aliens connected to the mob?". The book also lists the donations to Schumer from unions. A New Yorker of his age should be familiar with Mafia and Communist abuses of Unions.
The book should be considered in the category of light but entertaining reading.
