Daniel Ruddy's New Teddy Roosevelt Book

History of the
His Own Words, Selected and Arranged
By Daniel Ruddy
With a Foreword by Edmund Morris

In a unique project, Ruddy has carefully extracted Roosevelt's most relevant and telling comments - from letters to books to speeches - and organized them to form a full, colorful and highly opinionated history of the United States up to 1919, the year TR died.

Theodore Roosevelt is well remembered for his energetic personality, his leadership in the Progressive Movement, and his "cowboy" image. But he is best remembered for his words. Lifetimes have been spent speculating on what Roosevelt truly thought, and now scholar and historian Daniel Ruddy provides thought-provoking insight into just that.

THEODORE ROOSEVELT'S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES: His Own Words, Selected and Arranged by Daniel Ruddy is an assemblage that provides readers with a unique account of American history from 1776 to 1918. Roosevelt's ideas about the nation's past can be found sprinkled throughout his voluminous writings, but these "pearls of thought" (as one reviewer described them in 1888) have never before been collected.

Roosevelt, the historical observer, was a hanging judge who did not hesitate to opine on the leaders and events of our nation's past. His razor-sharp opinions cut to the core, capturing the essence of obscure and prominent historic figures alike: Thomas Paine was a "filthy little atheist;" Andrew Jackson "not more than half civilized;" John Tyler "a politician of monumental littleness;" Winfield Scott "a good general, but otherwise a wholly absurd and flatulent personage;" Millard Fillmore "a pompous old non-entity;" William McKinley had "no more backbone than a chocolate eclair;" William Howard Taft a "flubdub with a streak of the common and the second rate in him."

Roosevelt was not shy about stating his opinions of his contemporaries either. He felt that Andrew Carnegie and other Robber Barons were "singularly callous" to the sufferings of ordinary people, and that William Randolph Hearst "would aspire to play the part of some of the least worthy creatures" of the French Terror. After the ill-fated Progressive Party failed to propel TR into the White House in 1912, it became "the Free Soil Party of our day," and when Woodrow Wilson refused to immediately enter World War I, Roosevelt branded him the "heir of Jefferson and Buchanan."

Captivating and insightful towards this American life, Daniel Ruddy skillfully gathered a great collection of writing to paint a clearer portrait of a man and his impressions of our nation's history. Watch Daniel on Fox News Channel: Go Here Now.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Daniel Ruddy grew up on Long Island, New York where a childhood trip to Roosevelt's home, Sagamore Hill, in Oyster Bay, triggered a lifelong interest in TR. He is a marketing consultant for Fortune 500 companies, and he holds a Master's Degree in international relations from the London School of Economics. He is an avid researcher into U.S. history and the presidency. [more...]

'Islam Rising' Exposes Radical Islam in America

On May 1, 2010 Christian Action Network (CAN) and PRB Films will release a new documentary entitled, Islam Rising, a film that exposes the dangers of radical Islam to the Western world and features the internationally acclaimed Dutch politician, Geert Wilders. The film follows on the heels of CAN’s explosive documentary released last year, Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around U.S.

CALL SANDY NOW at 516-735-5468 or e-mail Sandy to schedule interviews with Martin Mawyer, the Director of "Islam Rising."

Mr. Wilders, who is currently running for Prime Minister in the Netherlands, lives under a constant death threat for producing his own film, Fitna. His film shows how radical Islamists are simply following the dictates of the Quran in their attempt at world domination through violence, murder and infiltration. As a special feature of Islam Rising, Mr. Wilders’ own controversial film, Fitna, is included.

Geert Wilders is currently on trial in The Netherlands for his alleged "hate speech" against Islam and has almost single-handedly brought global attention to the Islamic infiltration and dominance of Europe.

Though CAN does not endorse all the views of Mr. Wilders made in the film, the Dutch parliamentarian warns that if the growing Islamic takeover of Europe is not stopped, the West could be faced with a "thousand years of darkness."

As part of its promotion for Islam Rising, CAN will be displaying billboards along major interstates of the east coast. Six billboards will be on display, starting in South Carolina, by the middle of April.

Islam Rising will debut in Washington, D.C. on May 1 in the Rayburn House Office Building. More than 500 people are expected to be in attendance.

The New English Review raves: "We hope that Islam Rising receives a wide public viewing especially by Members of Congress. It is a testimony that one man can make a difference."

Martin Mawyer, president of CAN, says, "Islam Rising is a daring film. It's a dangerous film. It's an attempt to show Americans how Europe is being be brought to its knees by radical Islamists and how they are making inroads into the United States."

The documentary feature includes dramatic film footage, shocking photos and a special warning by Geert Wilders, himself. Go here for more information.

2010: Take Back America by Dick Morris

As battle lines are drawn for 2010, authors of the smash #1 New York Times bestseller Catastrophe - are back with their hottest book yet:

2010: Take Back America
The Battle Plan
By Dick Morris & Eileen McGann

Casting your vote in the November 2010 election may be the single most important thing you do all year, because these elections will be the critical turning point for America's future. They're our chance to take back America.

We stand at the crossroads of ideals and policies: freedom versus socialism; sovereignty versus international subservience; economic liberty versus debt slavery; quality medical care versus government-sponsored euthanasia; and private property versus confiscatory taxation.

All this depends on the answer to one question: Will Obama maintain his control of Congress?

To prepare us for this battle, Dick Morris and Eileen McGann have written 2010: TAKE BACK AMERICA, their most important book yet. In Fleeced, they warned of the dangers of an Obama administration. In Catastrophe, they predicted his campaign to promote a socialist economy. And now, in this book, they offer a battle plan to take back America.

Morris and McGann explain the stakes - permanent unemployment, rampaging inflation, international control of our economy, collapse of our manufacturing industry, European-style taxation levels, and a nation without quality medical care at any price.

They point out the targets - the incumbent Democrats who are most vulnerable. They identify the races we must win and offer ammunition to do so. They examine the records of Harry Reid, Blanche Lincoln, Arlen Specter, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Barbara Boxer - the key incumbent targets for 2010. And they tell you all the secrets these incumbents hope you won't find out.

They outline a strategy for victory - explaining the pitfalls and walking us through a path to winning control of Congress.

Last but certainly not least, they tell us what we can do as individuals to defeat Obama - how to go beyond the traditional work of donating, local campaigning, and voting, and build our own electronic precincts to get people engaged and spread the word between now and Election Day. Today politics is no longer a spectator sport; Morris and McGann explain how to get off the bleachers and get out on the field, using every bit of technology at our fingertips to get the message out.

The battle is coming. 2010: TAKE BACK AMERICA is the basic training manual you need to win.


The congressional elections of 2010 will determine our future.
This book shows what we need to do to win.

Our system of free enterprise hangs in the balance. If we lose, we face permanently high unemployment, socialized medicine, rampant inflation, perpetual debt slavery, and a European-style government-run economy.

Thirteen senate seats and fifty-four house races will determine control of Congress.
This book shows us how to attack these incumbents and outlines a path to victory.

Make Obama the issue. Attack his policies at their weakest points.
Nationalize the campaign. Stay on the offensive.

Politics is no longer a spectator sport. This book explains how you can help freedom win - by creating your own electronic precincts using every bit of technology at our fingertips, as well as good old word of mouth.

DICK MORRIS served as Bill Clinton's political consul­tant for twenty years. A regular political commentator on Fox News Channel, he is the author of seven New York Times bestsellers (all with Eileen McGann) and one Washington Post bestseller.

The Way to Real Health

By Dr. Evelyn Higgins

On April 7, 2010 I will leave on a journey to complete a 500-mile trek through a popular pilgrimage route – the Compostela de Santiago, a trail crossing the Pyrenees Mountains from France to the NW tip of Spain. This path has been traversed by many over the past 1,200 years and is very rich in culture. I am taking this journey because I’d like to create awareness that health is more than simply the absence of disease.

We will discuss what I call “the four pillars to health: the physical, the emotional, the intellectual, and the spiritual.” It is in creating the balance of all four that we find the way to real health. All four aspects must be in balance to achieve optimum health and thereby live with purpose of becoming the best that you can be. www.thewaytorealhealth.com will serve to not only chronicle my journey, but to inspire others to take their own personal journeys towards real health – inside and out.

On the trail, we will discover the mysteries of life and create new life habits to make us become the best that each of us can be. I challenge you to participate in the 35-day walk – the “Walk and Talk the Talk Challenge.” As I walk and talk, I will use it as a way to motivate and inspire you to become the best YOU that you can be.
