Description : The book of Revelation clearly tells us that someday there would be an end to this world; many have tried to determine this mystery date in our future to no avail. But the mystery that the date seekers and many others failed to notice is this, WHY Why is so much more important than when? There is no question about it; this world will definitely come to an end. But, why is it going to end? In an ancient generation of mankind God gave man his law. It is called the “TEN COMMANDMENTS”. In today’s society these laws are broken every day without much notice. To our own ignorance there is always a price to pay when we disobey. But life goes on. These laws were put into place to protect us from ourselves. But there is one sin that brought our world to an end that fell through the cracks virtually unnoticed. This great sin has now spread throughout the entire earth; Christians and unbelievers are all involved in this sin that has now grown so large that it is actually bringing in the curse of God for the judgment of this sin that will ultimately end our world as we know it. Fulfilling the prophecies of the book of Revelation. In this day and time knowledge has been much increased. So the sin that caused our world to end would have to be put in place in such a way as to be greatly unnoticed. Such as an illusionist or magician. In this book that you are about to read, you will learn the greatest deception ever pulled off in the world’s history, and at a cost so great that it will cause the end of our world, as we know it. The time for this judgment has already began, as early as 2007 the count down clock for the end of the world events began to tick off. The Holy bible was given to mankind directly from God to tell us how life began and why our world ended.

Description : The only book that explores the vaccination issue from political, ethical, psychological, aesthetic, and spiritual perspectives. Using principles of general semantics to recognize propaganda, particularly medical propaganda, it points to the power of the media to create our reality. James suggests an unusual consciousness-raising plan of action to insure freedom of choice and non-harrassment of persons who choose to stay off the vaccine bandwagon. The author's controversial position is supported throughout the book by the scientific discoveries of researchers who have received little recognition in orthodox medical literature. This new, completely revised edition shows: how vaccinations damage the immune and nervous systems, the vaccine-drug-AIDS connection, how to become propaganda-proof, and how to develop new paradigms of health and preventive medicine.
Description : The Ruppert Mundys, once the greatest baseball team in America, are now in a terminal decline, their line-up filled with a disreputable assortment of old men, drunks and even amputees. Around them baseball itself seems to be collapsing, brought down by a bizarre mixture of criminality, stupidity, and The Great Communist Conspiracy, aimed at the very heart of the American way of life. In this hilarious and wonderfully eccentric novel Philip Roth turns his attention to one of the most beloved of all American rituals: baseball. Players, tycoons and the paying public are all targets as Roth satirises the dense tapestry of myths and legends that have grown up around The Great American Pastime.
Description : We may say that honesty is the best policy, but history—to say nothing of business, politics, and the media—suggests otherwise. In this infinitely citable book, the author of two bestselling treasuries of scandal recounts some of the greatest deceptions of all time. With what forged document did the Vatican lay claim to much of Europe? Who wrote Hitler’s diaries? Why do millions still believe the vague doggerel that Nostradamus passed off as prophecy? Organizing his material by theme (con artists, the press, military trickery, scientific fraud, imposters, great escapes, and more), Michael Farquhar takes in everything from the hoodwinking of Hitler to Vincent “the Chin” Gigante’s thirty-year crazy act. A Treasury of Deception is a zestful, gossipy exposé—and celebration—of mendacity. A Treasury of Deception also includes: Ten tricksters from scripture Ten great liars in literature Ten egregious examples of modern American doublespeak Ten classic deceptions from Greek mythology
Description : In The Anatomy of Deception, Abele reconstructs the public dialogue that led to the United States collectively making the decision to invade and occupy the sovereign nation of Iraq. The book examines this public debate concerning the invasion and occupation of Iraq and focuses on thinking critically about the decision. It will be argued here that the structure of the public case made for invading Iraq showed itself at that time to be a manipulation of evidence for a predetermined conclusion. This book is intended to challenge readers to debate such important issues more deeply, more reflectively, and with more ethical commitment than prior to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. If we do not commit ourselves to that, and set about righting the wrongs done in the public debate regarding Iraq, we will find ourselves in many more wars to come, for no other reason than the self-interests of those who seek to enhance their own profit and/or power.
