The Conspiracy Trial for the Murder of the President:And the Attempt to Overthrow the Government by the Assassination. . . United States Army Military Commission
What if surging gun violence, racial tension and distrust of law enforcement was by design? What if the rage and disenchantment of working class Americans was stoked by politicians? What if neighbors were urged to despise neighbors because of their differences? When a national house divided is scripted and staged, the looming future begins to look like an unspeakable past. Mark Ashton, troubled by the intensity and ignorance of a certain radio talk show host, dials in to the show. Concerned, he investigates further. The deep unrest he exposes shakes him to the core. America is a simmering cauldron. Can he, with his military intelligence background and connections, save America in time by derailing the devastating conspiracy, brewing since the end of WWII? 1.

In the formidable Colonel Garrison´s updated version of the old Redskins program, operatives actually have and maintain an authentic identity very different from that of spy. As Colonel Garrison likes to say, ´´It is easier to make an agent out of a real person than a real person out of an agent.´´ Dan O´Donovan, former Marine, partner in and heir to a local family department store chain, is one such operative. On a business trip to Turkey Mary Sue Hooper finds herself held for ransom along with several other women. Her brother Pres and their partner Dan O´Donovan both receive ransom notes and leave for Istanbul. But just before Dan leaves, his control contacts him with orders to ´´free those women´´ for reasons that don´t quite ring true. Generosity and humanitarianism are not traits one associates with Colonel Garrison. In Istanbul Dan deals with the situation and with Pres who is, as usual, clueless but determined to save his sister. On this mission, Dan finds himself involved in a cooperative effort to free the women that includes branches of Turkey´s police and military as well as officials from several other countries. As events unfold, Dan also discovers there is much more to the situation than a simple kidnapping. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Beverly Enwall.

Nearly 120 years after the Dreyfus Affair, a new secret file has been unearthed - and it upends much of what we knew about the famous case involving the French Jewish officer wrongfully accused of treason. As the file against Dreyfus shows - recently revealed by the French army and excerpted here for the first time in English - the case against Dreyfus was shockingly more complex, involving an affair between two military attachés, a series of forgeries, and an insidious campaign that subtly blended homophobia and anti-Semitism to thwart justice and land an innocent man in jail. Digging into the secret file, Tablet Magazine senior writer Liel Leibovitz offers a vivid new version of this seminal historical narrative, recasting the affair as a detective story set against the backdrop of beautifully decadent Belle epoque Paris. And helping to solve the crime here is an unexpected sleuth: Marcel Proust, a dedicated chronicler of the affair who, despite having never seen the secret allegations against Dreyfus, intuited them and incorporated them into his masterpiece of a novel. Conspiracy of Letters is a short and evocative story of history, literature, prejudice, and the way they often shape and inform each other. Liel Leibovitz is a senior writer for Tablet Magazine and the author or co-author of five books, including the upcoming A Broken Hallelujah: Rock and Roll, Redemption, and the Life of Leonard Cohen, which will be published by W.W. Norton in April of 2014. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Blumenfeld. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/018351/bk_adbl_018351_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
A pact has been agreed upon between British politicians and leading American colonists for a war of independence to take place that Britain would ultimately lose. In return, the new US would secretly pay an amount to Britain each year that would help support the financing of their navy and military to defend themselves and their Empire against a new French Republic. Throughout the coming years this pact had been known to only a select few but this knowledge had contributed to important historical events, including the War of 1812, World War II, and the Kennedy Assassination. Nevertheless, the secret had remained in tact until an innocent couple uncovered a trunk containing letters written between the British politicians and the American colonists that describe certain events that lead to the War of Independence. The couple contacted a top museum to have the letters authenticated but this act unwittingly set off a chain of events that caused the death of a junior curator of the museum at the hands of the F.B.I. The couple are then chased by the F.B.I. until their eventual capture when they are taken to Washington. The director of the F.B.I. is one of the few people in the know and he provides a brief history of the pact and why it must remain a secret. But it doesn´t end there as the couple escapes from the clutches of the F.B.I. only to find themselves in the custody of a group of British S.A.S. operatives. Ultimately, they come face to face with someone even more imposing and intimidating than anyone they have ever met before, and their fate is hanging in the balance. 1. Language: English.

Did you know that American history is peppered with cases of human experimentation? Could you in your wildest dreams imagine that it was happening through the mid-1970s? That is in most of our lifetimes! I wish I could tell you that it´s a load of crap, but the fact is...it´s true. Supported by dozens of declassified documents and publications, horrible human testing can be corroborated throughout our history. Conspiracy Fact: Human Experimentation in the United States introduces you to a number of appalling cases involving the most vulnerable members of society. The book documents a handful of cases taking place between the 1840s and 1970s. That´s right, for over a century, these atrocities were regularly happening. This is just the tip of the iceberg. You will discover the names of doctors who performed tests on United States citizens without their knowledge or consent. You will hear about cases of the poor, minorities, pregnant women, and infants - even military personnel were not safe from their probes and needles. That´s not all; there´s an addendum and a wealth of sources where the information was found. This is the first book in a series called Conspiracy Facts Declassified that will take an in-depth look at our world and attempt to decode fact from fiction. 1. Language: English.
