The Breakdown of Higher Education By John M. Ellis

A series of near-riots on campuses aimed at silencing guest speakers has exposed the fact that our universities are no longer devoted to the free exchange of ideas in pursuit of truth. But this hostility to free speech is only a symptom of a deeper problem, writes John M. Ellis, the author of The Breakdown of Higher Education: How It Happened, the Damage It Does, and What Can Be Done.

Having watched the deterioration of academia up close for the past fifty years, Ellis locates the core of the problem in a change in the composition of the faculty during this time, from mildly left-leaning to almost exclusively and much more virulently leftist. He explains how astonishing historical luck led to the success of a plan first devised by a small group of activists to use college campuses to promote radical politics, and why laws and regulations designed to prevent the politicizing of higher education proved insufficient.

In The Breakdown of Higher Education, you'll learn:

·    How higher education became so corrupted by radical politics, and so dominated by hard left radicals, when all of its governing documents insist that it must never be used for a political purpose;

·    Why a politically one-party campus is bound to become politically extreme and foolish;

·    How an academic teacher differs from a political activist: the huge differences in temperament, goals and knowledge mean that the one can't do the job of the other, and ought never to have been allowed to do so;

·    That numerous studies show college graduates haven't made any gains in their capacity to think independently and reason, or in their ability to read and comprehend complex texts, or in their knowledge of the history and functioning of the society they live in;

·    College courses on American history are heavily corrupted by an uncontrolled animus against America;

·    What important things the campus near-riots tell us about the state of higher education;

·    How our society is being damaged by a politicized academia (graduates unprepared for citizenship; a national political climate poisoned by political hatreds learned in college);

·    About the many ways our colleges and universities now fail to do what we have always expected them to do; and

·    What can be done to reform higher education and make it the great blessing for the nation that it once was.

Ellis shows that political motivation is always destructive of higher learning. Even science and technology departments are not immune. The corruption of universities by radical politics also does wider damage: to primary and secondary education, to race relations, to preparation for the workplace, and to the political and social fabric of the nation.

Commonly suggested remedies - new free-speech rules or enforced right-of-center appointments - will fail because they don't touch the core problem, a controlling faculty majority of political activists with no real interest in scholarship. This book proposes more drastic and effective reform measures. The first step is for Americans to recognize that vast sums of public money intended for education are being diverted to a political agenda, and to demand that this fraud be stopped.

Dr. Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D. Introduces TeleMD Program on

On Friday 4/24, Saturday 4/25, and Sunday 4/26 Dr. Jerome Corsi will be hosting a marathon live-stream on various Internet channels. Then, starting Monday 4/27, he will be available for radio and TV interviews. He will be promoting the TeleMD program on the website.
GO HERE to watch the live-stream program.

We have created TeleMD with - a telephone service where a practicing MD licensed in your state can call you by telephone for you to become a patient. The call is a medical consultation.

If the physician determines that Hydroxychloroquine, as recommended by our medical advisor, Dr. Vladimir Zelenko's protocol, fits the tele-patient's needs and is unlikely to cause adverse side-effects, the MD can write a prescription for you. The prescription is filled by a national pharmacy chain with the HCQ prescriptions being filled by one of their pharmacies in a state where it is legal for the pharmacy to fulfill a MD prescription for COVID-19. 

The pharmacy calls the patient to arrange for any insurance that may defray the cost of the prescription. The patient pays for the prescription by credit card plus the cost of express delivery to the patient's door, or a local address specified by the patient. The goal is for the pharmacy to have the prescription delivered to the patient's home overnight. The MD can also prescribe zinc and/or antibodies as the MD deems appropriate.

To be clear, we are simply the marketing arm of the program. We are marketing a TeleMD service, we are NOT selling drugs. The MD will decide whether or not HCQ is appropriate for the patient's medical condition and will not be hostile to prescribing HCQ as needed, including for preventative use.

HCQ is a legal medication that is FDA recommended for various illnesses, including malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis. The MD may also prescribe HCQ "off label" as a treatment for a particular patient for a different medical condition, including preventing and treating COVID-19, as the physician deems appropriate.

The website and the video makes clear that I, Jerome Corsi, and are not medically trained and we are not qualified to give medical advice. We will be reviewing the medical literature on HCQ and the FDA approved clinical trials on-going on HCQ and COVID-19 as specified in the U.S. Government website.

In the marathon live-stream program, we will be interviewing various MDs via Zoom, including family practitioners, epidemiologists, and virologists, as well as ministers and religious leaders, and other noted spokespersons and commentators as appropriate. We will also open the program to MDs that have patients among essential medical services workers, first responders, fire and police, grocery store workers, truck drivers etc.

We will open the program to MDs in states where the state pharmacies have been directed not to fulfill prescriptions for HCQ when prescribed by the MD for COVID-19, or where the pharmacies have run out of HCQ and/or Zinc supplies.

The MDs can see patients in their offices but they must use the TeleMD computer system to establish a patient in this system and to get their prescriptions filled by the national pharmacy.

Dr. Zelenko is the medical advisor to the TeleMD program though he is not receiving compensation and he does not hold any corporate position (or financial interest) in or The TeleMD program is not political - it is open to everyone in the USA regardless of political persuasion, race, gender, sex, or age.

Trump and Churchill: Defenders of Western Civilization By Nick Adams

Trump Will Be the 21st Century Churchill
Defender of Western Civilization

In his new book, Trump and Churchill: Defenders of Western Civilization (with a foreword by Newt Gingrich), internationally renowned speaker Nick Adams explains what the eloquent, quotable war-time Prime Minister of England and the brash, Twitter happy U.S. President have in common - both rescued Western civilization from the brink with their unorthodox approaches to domestic and international relations. 

In Trump and Churchill, complete with never-before-told anecdotes and exclusive interviews, bestselling author Nick Adams explores how both leaders turned the prevailing politics of their time on its head. In doing so, they both endured shockingly similar battles instigated by the political establishment seeking their destruction.

Both President Trump and Prime Minister Churchill fought valiantly to protect Western civilization; and while fighting different forms of tyranny, Trump could very well be to the twenty-first century what Churchill was to the twentieth.

Trump and Churchill is a comparison of both men, the enemies they faced and their strategy in defeating them. Two of the greatest leaders in world history: Churchill conquered the Axis Powers and President Trump is conquering the "Swamp." Though very different, at first glance, they are remarkably similar. What do Winston Churchill - the eloquent, eternally quotable wordsmith, pudgy politician of fifty years, wealthy aristocrat, war-time Prime Minister of England - and Donald Trump, the 6'4", political neophyte, billionaire entrepreneur - have in common?

·    Neither concealed their true self nor conformed to expectations;

·    Both were confident and loved their country though were intensely disliked, even hated;

·    Both alpha males were clear thinkers and plain speakers who stared down their enemies; and

·    Both endured battles with the political establishment which was determined to destroy them.

It is vital for Americans to understand what is at stake in the coming 2020 presidential election and in the world right now. If the domestic enemies within America win, the consequences for the world could be very similar to the threat Churchill faced in the twentieth century. In Trump and Churchill, there are many incredible parallels between the men and their times. The book is essential for the clear understanding of the dangers facing America and the world.
