Review: Patriots Of Treason

Author: David Thomas Roberts Book Rating : 2 1/2 stars (Out of 4) This was a review copy, provided at no cost to the reviewer. It should be duly noted right out at the forefront of this review that this is definitely a very in your face kind of book as it relates to its political dealings. Unashamedly, it’s a tin foil hat wearing, ‘right wingers’ kind of book mixing elements of current events and the author’s own imaginings. And it does have a political agenda. Everything from the content, the timing of the release, and the author’s background and bio on the jacket sleeve will give you this much info. That said, if that isn’t your cup of tea, I don’t know why you’d bother reading it, or this review in the first place. I do not award extra points for this book’s political leanings which … [Read more...]

Review: Extraordinary Rendition

Writer's note: We rate video games movies and albums on a 10-point scale these days. I'll follow suit here too, with the following provision: every book I review will receive a minimum rating of 2.0—one point for having written a book, which I haven't, and one point for having gotten that book published, which I also haven't. After those concessions, the rest is up to the author and the editor.     'Extraordinary Rendition'. I had to look that one up. It's a good thing I did, because if I hadn't, I'd have probably told you that it meant a really good cover song. Like the Johnny Cash version of Tom Petty's I Won't Back Down. Or the Johnny Cash version of anything, for that matter. But I digress. Anyway—I found out that the term actually refers to the unlawful transfer of a … [Read more...]

DVD Review: 2016 – Obama’s America

2016: Obama’s America Starring: Dinesh D’Souza Director(s): Dinesh D’Souza, John Sullivan Writer(s): Dinesh D’Souza, John Sullivan Studio: Lionsgate Genre: Political Documentary Runtime: 87 minutes Rating: PG 2016: Obama’s America enjoyed a ton of success at the box office this Summer, raking in over $30 million and becoming the second highest-grossing political documentary of all time and the fifth highest-grossing documentary of all time. The documentary is based on the book The Roots of Obama’s Rage by conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, who also co-wrote, co-directed, and stars in this film. Folks who haven’t seen the film should know exactly what they’re getting into with this: it’s an anti-Obama film that comes from the so-called right. I’d put it overall just a rung or two … [Read more...]

Reality Check comes from Ben Swann and WXIX-FOX 19 out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Be sure to like Ben's Reality Check Facebook page here. … [Read more...]
