3-0 out of 5 stars NWO? Probably Not...
With "The New World Order" writer A. Ralph Epperson has picked up entirely where his last book "The Unseen Hand" left off, and that is attempting to prove a worldwide conspiracy to create a New World Order, and the complete destruction of Christian ideology.

Epperson attempts to link everything from Communism, to the New Age Movement with Satan Worship, and the policies of annihilation.

It isn't that this isn't an interesting read, it is indeed, but he really attempts to make connections out of ideas and subjects that if researched by an individual would prove to be entirely unrelated.

As a person I am fully convinced that there are a number of conspiracies being hidden from the eyes, and ears of the general public, but Epperson attempts so strongly to make a conspiracy out of everything, which really makes him look more of a paranoid schizophrenic than a serious researcher and historian.

3-0 out of 5 stars Epperson missed the mark
This book had great potential to be a real blockbuster, but because of Epperson lack of scholorship this book missed the mark.On one hand I will have to give Mr. Epperson credit because he obtain a lot of sources for this book, but because he use so many I began to question if any of these quotes were taken out of context.This is a issue that really needs to be seriously look at, but it has to be studied very carefully.The facts need to come via first person or second person.The most groud breaking books about masons or satanist have come from people that were actually involved with either of the two.Epperson is a outsider and the depth of this book proves it.
Now I am not saying that what Epperson is trying to bring out is not good because it is.Base on what Epperson attemped to bring out in this book, the Freemasons and those that pratice witch craft need to be taken more seriously.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow, what an eye opener
I'll have to say that this book brings together the puzzle of the theories I've had for several years. Following societies downfall and the coming new age, it is apparent that Mr. Epperson has done his homework. For those of you that are concerned about where we are aheaded as a human race, I'd truely recommend this book and other related publications. I can't wait to pass my copy to a friend. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars your journey to paranoia starts here
This book is wickedly entertaining, and seems to make a lot of sense, although, giving a few months of time to think about the material made me realize that it was little more than good entertainment.Conspiracy theories are good fun and can make you snap out of boredom and skirt the boundary of paranoia, which is a testament to how dull our lives can be.This book may have you looking at everyone you see in a funny way for a while, but in the end it should be viewed as mere entertainment.Some of this junk may be true, and there are abundant cross references to the material, but this guy's whole mission of sending an alarm seems to be just a vice for his own self-aggrandizement.Good fun, but there is better material on this subject out there.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, Frightening, and Factual !!
William still's New World Order: The ancient plan of secret societies will make a great reading for the curious and brave mind that's willing to explore and learn the facts about the evolution of the elitist societies. Many of these secret societies have gone through a major metamorphosis that has led them to become legitimate entities and organizations. These organizations have been ruling every aspect of our lives for many years. Just like in organized crime, these powerful families even tend to intermarry among each other to strengthen the bond of power and wealth among themselves. They are the invisible rulers of the world that make the policies which in return bring them more money and power. You will learn in this book how it all started and why it will never end. This is not a book about evil, or about a doomsday scenario, but it is a book about man's desperate quest, obsession, and addiction to power, control, and aspiration to become god. The one world order (globalization is another benign name for it) has already happened and no one can stop it. The elites have facilitated the wedding of the global corporations to the political world, thereby creating a conquering hybrid machine which has tremendously succeeded in subjugating every corner of the globe economically and militarily if needed. This book will provide the reader with enlightening concepts that might be so shocking to believe.Mr. Still's research is disturbing and unsettling but very well documented and mostly accurate. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars If you can't get the basic facts right...
... how are we supposed to believe your theories that are harder to substantiate?

The litany of errors is hilarious.
Davis-Monthan AFB in Tuscon, AZ is alternately named "David Monthan," "Davis Munson," and "David Munson."Any road map could've provided the correct information.
Ft. Indiantown Gap in PA is similarly renamed about 3 different times.

Among the most amusing contention are the 30,000 "UN troops" stationed in Barstow, CA.First, Barstow doesn't have the water supply to support the 22,000 people that do live there.Second, the "UN troops" were probably soldiers from nearby Ft. Irwin, who wear different uniforms because their job is to portray the bad guys for units who come there to train (and there are fewer than 2500 of them).Third, why Barstow?What are they going to do, take down Las Vegas?And would anyone miss it if they did?

The best of all, though, is the cargo train of New World Order UN vehicles travelling through the western states.Keith claims they are "BMP-40s."They are quitely clearly Canadian Grizzly armored cars and M113 personnel carriers.Had anyone bothered to compare the timing of this train and the training schedule at the National Training Center, they would've known that the Canadians had a regiment of troops training with the Americans and these were the Canadian vehicles going home.When "Soldier of Fortune" debunks your cornerstone theory and dismisses it as the ravings of a right-wing lunatic, you know you're in trouble.

The Russian tanks seen on flatbeds near Gowen Field, ID and El Paso, TX?Probably going to the local weapons ranges to be shot at, since we've been using Russian tanks for target practice for decades, to test the effectiveness of our own weapons.

All in all, this is worth reading for the humor in it.But not worth spending money on.Unfortunately, there's no lower rating you can give than one star, but this one deserves to be in the negative.

3-0 out of 5 stars The future under a New World Order.
I approach this book as an outsider to this genre.I'm not big conspiracy theory buff.I'm not a survivalist.Nor am I a die-hard political fanatic.Like most Americans, I go about my life vaguely aware of what's happening in our government.Given that, I went into this book with an open mind.

Jim Keith, who I find after some research, was one of the leading writers in government activities.With Black Helicopters Over America he raises some interesting questions.What is our military doing?What exactly does the government have in mind for our future?What part does our government play in the political machinations of the United Nations?

Keith lays out the plans for a New World Order.He describes an international police force under U.N. direction.He shows the groundwork for the disarmament of the people and the rights that we could lose in the new world state.Keith also describes a future of concentration camps for those that would speak out against the New World Order.

Black Helicopters is a straightforward book laden with factual events and policies.However, though the events and policies may be factual, the context and details of those entries can sometimes seem questionable.As with most any issue, facts can be arranged to display the picture the writer wants to be seen.

The material in the book is a bit dated.Even though it was published in 1994, events in the book date back as far as the 1950s.Most of the events presented are from the 1970s.This in itself softens the credibility of the text.While writing this review, I did find out that Keith published a follow up book in 1998 titled Black Helicopters II : The End Game Strategy.I would imagine that the follow up takes the reader current, up to 1998.It may be worth the time for interested parties to read this book to see if Keith presents more recent events that would add credibility to his arguments.

If anything, Keith does present enough information to make the reader think.In fact, Keith urges the reader to step back and take at look at the information that is available.In my opinion, the underlying point of Black Helicopters is: To make educated decisions based on researched facts and to understand your government and what it is doing.It is something to think about.

1-0 out of 5 stars Propaganda for idiots, filled with factual errors
It is such a shame amazon.com doesn't allow for a "bomb" or "zero star" rating, because if ever a book merited one, this would be it.

A friend of mine gave it to me as a joke gift, and I immediately found all the timelines about cattle mutilations, black helicopters, and other urban (rural?) legends to be slightly less interesting than reading the phonebook.

Factual errors include descriptions of the AH-64 Apache helicopter as a "troop transport" (it's an attack helicopter and it cannot hold any troops at all), a reference to the military base at "St John, Canada, near Montreal" (the town is called St-Jean-sur-Richeleu and there hasn't been a base there for years, now it's just an army language school), and descriptions of helicopter crews wearing cowboy hats (what, no helmets or intercom headsets?)... ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Destruction
Eternal torment for those who do not know the "greys" are one of the three types of demons, if it leads you a human spirit away from Jesus, the most physical part of Triune God.
Your mind might be further stalked if just enough information is given you to enhance demonic-injected thoughts into your mind (part of your soul.)
Commander X is using a name similar to, or the same as, as I remember, one of the demons channeling LIES!!! to listeners.
The blood of Messiah Yeshua covers me spiritually, so I'm not fearful to tell you the truth.Repent,confess,life to J.C. ~

I have read a few conspiracy books in my time and Commander X isone of my favorite authors on topics which the major media seem to be ignoring.He is not as political as some of the other writers in the field who seem to have an anti American axe to grind. The good Commander is more into UFOs and ETS and believes we have gained a good deal of scientific knowledge from these beings. This book was easy reading -- it shows and there are groups among us who would like us to do their bidding; regardless of if they are terrorists or extremeists in our own military.Apparently, apparently there is a secret group working within our country to control our thinking...it is sort of an elitist group with branches in other parts of the world -- some have called it the New World Order.There are some exciting accounts in this book which makes it more interesting then some of the other books that have been written on the subject.I guess Commander X found out a lot about the Mind Stalkers when he "mixed it up" with the greys when he was abducted my the greys which he talks about in THE COMMANDER X FILES.Definitely buy this book if you want to know more about the evil that seeks to control us all!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Book.
This was one of my favorite books by Commander X.He brought up quite a bit of unique perspective and information not found anywhere else.I especially enjoyed the EDOM (Electronic Dissolution of Memory); the RHIC (Radio-Hypnotic Intra-Cerebral Control) and the writings on the separation and physics of consciousness.Chapter six puts it all together, and the book is worth it just for this chapter.I am glad I bought it and found it very interesting.

2-0 out of 5 stars who really knows?
I must say that I found most of this book a little far fetched for my belief system.Actually a lot far fetched.I can't comprehend Germans on the moon in 1944 nor Nazi bases under Antarctica.Nazi super cities in South America?Nazi contact with Aliens in the late 1800s?Where there Nazi's in the late 1800s?Guess I'll have to find that out first.

But some of the theories could be true.Many have speculated about the one world government takeover that may or may not be coming true as things evolve.The theories on gun control are interesting.

While I can't completely ignore everything in this book I beleive that most of it is quite a stretch.Pure fiction.The sources he sights are others who write about the same thing.Everytime you might think he is going to offer some concrete proof he hides behind the old "if I tell you who I am I will die" line.However, I found the chapter on Tesla quite interesting.And many of his statements in the chapter have been verified.So, is the entire book true since one chapter seems more verifiable?This is why I could not give it a one star rating.There seems to be some truth in this book.The problem becomes figuring out where it is.

5-0 out of 5 stars Should be six stars, wish i had a way off this doomed rock!
A masterpiece told by Commander X with a simple honesty who, by his subject matter, is probably talking in public only very briefy and probably with finality. A world sold without a public sale under new ownership neither friendly nor benign. Commander X is pulling no punches... and dead god in the sky help us if he is. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good, Loaded with Detailed Info
I read this book in 1992.When I told my friends and relatives what was coming in education (teaching homosexuality and beastiality, global citizenship, etc.), they thought I was a kook.They're not laughing now!All American schools are now obliged to teach kids how to be a multicutural, non-judgemental, citizen of the world.I also recommend her book, "Cloning of the American Mind."Her books are long on details, and not real entertaining, so you're going to have to work at them -- but it's worth it. -- RustyMason.com

5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute "Must Read" for anyone that cares about children
This is the story of how Anita Hoge investigated and uncovered how the state of Pennsylvania was implementing a psychological test to measure the students' beliefs, yet calling it "educational testing" to unsuspecting students and parents.Those with the "wrong" opinion receive extra "treatment" and the field of education turned away from teaching the basics (Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic).Anita stood up to the education establishment and forced it to obey the law.

This book is an absolute "Must Read" for anyone that cares about what is really occurring in the field of education. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars the new world order in their own words
I am the author of this book and find remarks by critics such as the one from Delray Beach to be amusingly selective. His review contains "oooh, conspiracy" putdown remarks, but he omits one of the conspirator's remarks 40 years into the plan admitting what they were up to.Furthermore, he omits Rhodes Scholar Strobe Talbott's criticism of national sovereignty while saying "the case for world government is clinched." And he omits Rhodes Scholar Bill Clinton's compliment to the World Federalist Association for giving Strobe an award for writing what he did, etc., etc. I would suggest that "oooh, conspiracy" putdowns are no substitute for the many documented quotes in the book.

2-0 out of 5 stars For 'Conspiracy Nuts' Only
As one reviewer pointed out, this isn't really a book.It is presented as a chronology with excerpts from newspaper articles, books, etc. that show the history of the globalist movement.
The typical people are on the scene, international bankers, the Round Table people or 'the Group', Skull and Bonesmen, the Council on Foreign Relations, with the numerous quotes from Tragedy and Hope.
The methods behind the New World Order aren't clearly spelled out, so other books would be much better to get.However, a self-confessed conspiracy nut could find some interesting leads for research.For example, apparently the Washington Post ran an article on Carrol Quigley shortly before his death entitled, "The professor who knew too much."I was unaware of this and would like to obtain a copy.
If you are willing to pay the price to get a handful of items like that, get the book, otherwise read a book by Antony Sutton or Carrol Quigley.

1-0 out of 5 stars George Bush wishes he never said it.
Rhodes scholars appoint other Rhodes scholars?

Oooooh. Conspiracy.

How about "highly educated Western leaders and industrialists
are often educated as Rhodes scholars at Oxford"?

And then "highly educated people appoint other highly educated
people who are like them"?

Poof. No conspiracy at all.

So George Bush said "we are entering a new world order"....

Ooooh. Conspiracy.

I bet George Bush wishes he had said, "we are entering a new
geopolitical framework, with the US being the only superpower.
But with developing nations rapidly accquiring ( and how I hate
this phrase ) weapons of mass destruction. We are living in
uncertain times".

Not as snappy as NWO ( as wrestling fans will testify ), but if
he had amplified his statement like this, you see no conspiracy

As to what Rhodes himself said, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, that was
at the height of the British Empire - clearly he thought that
Britain was going to stamp English all over the world and be
possibly the dominant world power ( as the US is now ). So, how
wrong he was!

So again, no conspiracy, just imperialist rhetoric and nothing

And these people are all "Rhodes scholars"? Well, I am afraid
that that is called "history" - something many Americans lack a
perpective of. The scholarships were started by Rhodes, they
still bear his name. That does not mean in any way that they
also bear or teach or promote his imperial asperations.

There is no "global conspiracy", there is nothing sinister going
on. It's just the rich and the powerful sticking together as
they have always done. ... Read more

With the exception of a few interpretations given to U.S. foreign policy and few opinions on where it should be going,this book hits the mark.Everything from enviromentalism to South Africa is touched upon.There's a category of essays about each inhabited continent, often withauthors actually originating from the country they're writing about. Whilesome light is shed on what the New World Order means for countries underthat order,there's not much room for detail, considering the range oftopics.Anyone who wants a good overall view of what's happening in theworld around them should read this;this will help a lot. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Obviously well researched.
All one needs to do to realize the importance of this work is to watch CNNFN or any other business news channel, read the wall street journal etal. Merger, merger, merger,.The UN, World Bank, Corporate greed, Ajuvenile and naive population, which will happily step over the bodies ofthose less fortunates whose 401's didn't come through or never possessed. Of course for any of this to culminate in the true end game scenario, theymust assume a greater yet degree of control of the people and their money. I suggest you read "Transfer: the end of the beginning," by JerryFurland, also available through amazon.com.I highly recommend both ofthese books.

5-0 out of 5 stars Provocative and Scary
Imperial Corporations is an easily readable, fact-filled book portraying the rise of a "standardized culture" across the planet. This is a culture of Pepsico and Madonna, of Bertelmann and American Express.The book is full of scary facts about these major corporations, andothers, such as Sony and Citibank. It reads like a novel and you can breeze through it, though, as I said, it's full of incredibly interesting material on the global corporate power structure. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely wonderful!
This is an absolutely wonderful book for anyone at all interested in The Templars. This is a full and original work of research that covers every detail you can imagine about The Templars. If I must chose something that detracts from the over all feeling of the book is the chapter called The Templar Network as this is a rather dry account of the manors and so on throughout the Continent and the Kingdom of Jerusalem. If you do chose to read this book I would recommend skipping most of the chapter mentioned above until Barber starts talking about the Templar network as a reliable bank for kings and popes alike. I highly recommend this book!

This is the reference that should be looked to before all others when reading or learning about the Templars.

3-0 out of 5 stars Full of facts but too scholarly for
This book is a good source of information for the serious student. If you have a good knowledge of medieval and crusade history then this book will trace the order of the Templars through all the political, military and ideological contexts that the order existed in. It will provide you with sources and chronologies and will explain what the Templars did, why they were such an important force and how exactly they were able to achieve what they achieved.

If you're not familliar with the background, like me, you'll probably find this a hard read. The book reads like a textbook, peppered with footnotes, dates and places which obfuscate if they're totally unfamilliar. For me, it felt like much of the text was going in one ear and out the other.

The book's chapters fall into two categories. The first half is more chronological referring to the history of the Templars. The second half is more topical, to do with aspects of Templar life (their network, social structure and beliefs), as well as a description of the Templars in the popular imagination. For someone being introduced to the Templars, the second half will be much more interesting and accessible. For history buffs, the first half will be very informative.

If you're looking for a detailed, scholarly account, this is the book. If you're a layman seeking an introduction, go elsewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars The definitive Templar book
I have not yet read the new Templar history by Helen Nicholson, but until I do this book stands as the best one ever written about the Knights Templar. I have written quite a bit about them myself (they were the topic of my honors thesis at Cornell University) and so have read about every relevant source on them.
"The New Knighthood" is clear, well-written, and very well-researched, covering the inception of the Order in 1119 to its suppression in 1307. Barber sticks to the best historical sources and covers the topic from head to toe, a much needed historical overhaul for the Templars, in my opinion, because their name has become so ridiculously intertwined with myths and legends of all sorts that the actual history of the Order is often completely obscured. This is sad given their enormous importance in the Holy Land during the crusader period and the innumerable legitimate questions we might investigate concerning them.
A warning to would-be delvers into supernatural research: There is a chapter that covers the "mysterious" rumors surrounding the Order in this book, but it is based in sources accepted by the scholarly world as legitimate, i.e., you won't find much here to support theories of secret treasure, devil-worship, the guardianship of the holy grail, etc. Don't scoff at that: scholars have painstakingly researched the origins of all the sources that come to light. They of all people should know what is close to fact and what is not, certainly more than many of these low-rent, legend-peddling hucksters that have written about the Templars over the past thirty years. The interest of the scholar and professor is to inform you, the interest of many of these other writers is to cash in on curiosity about "secret societies" and make a quick buck at your expense. When looking for a book on the Templars, pay attention to the pedigree of the author-- what do they do/ What's their education?
If you're really interested in the history of the Order, this book is one of the very, very few worth buying. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars More about John
I knew John right about the time he wrote this book and also met his family. The reviewer who suggested that he might be part of a CIA program in writing this book is way, way off. This man has put himself (and his family) in a very scary position and he deserves a lot of credit for coming out with the truths he knows. I knew him and did some work for him for about a year and I also knew someone else that had known him for decades. John Stockwell deserves many kudos for his courage and integrity in coming out with what he knows. You can believe the book. I hope he will come out with more.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BITTER TRUTH
This book explains the intricate, intense, and often unjustified involvement of the CIA in many parts of the world, through thousands of covert operations, which, according to the book and other sources, have ended the lifes of millions of people.It describes secret and obscure operations, some of which entailed the killing of people by the thousands at Angola, and others such as the one which overthrew the first democratic government in Guatemala, and the creation of the infamous "death squads" in that country and El Salvador, to murder civilians and seed terror among the people.All orchestrated by our CIA, apparently in the name of national interests. I will not say much about this, because I urge you to read the book, but many of these operations were bloody, bloody, bloody, and they were emphatically denied at official briefings to the Congress, which, needless to say, is a felony.

Stockwell goes deep, and he surely has bases to do it.He is the highest rank CIA official ever to go public.And even though this book has been censored, you still can get pretty much information from it.You will realize that most of the time, the CIA hasn't really had fair motives to carry out the operations.The real interests behind all of it are completely different from the picture that we get from the news and the official reports from our government. Reading this one will make you end up with a sad feeling after having been shown the bitterness of reality.It will make you wonder about which has been our true government, and you will want to ask if all our "liberties" and "freedoms" have been paid at the cost of millions of innocent children, women, and men from all over the world.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but not great
The Praetorian Guard purports to tell the secrets of what the US government is really doing in the world and why.The author is ex-CIA and uses his inside knowledge to tell stories of what goes on in the world-behind-the-scenes.And they are interesting stories, certainly.He especially dwells on what are in his views the evils of the Reagan and Bush (1st Bush) administrations.He does mention activities before the Reagan era, but his disgust and dislike of the politics of both Reagan and Bush make his writing into more of a rant against those two than against world destabilization.One gets the feeling that he would still be in favor of all the secret dealings in the world if only they favored his own political objectives.That may be completely wrong and Mr. Stockwell may indeed be against these activities in general, but if so he spent a little too much of his anger directly on Reagan and Bush.Not that they are blameless.
When I picked up this book, I expected something much more "scholarly" than what I got.Perhaps that is my fault.I expected more time to be spent on the Why's of all this covert activity.I expected more revelation as to the motivations and direction or these top policy makers.Instead I got stories.Certainly, some of the subject matter is supposed to be secret and undocumentable, but there was plenty of mention of activities which were and are documentable.Mr. Stockwell's credibility in the book would have been much improved if he had included documentation for those things where it was available.
The author makes the claim that the CIA has had many books published to favor their own agendas.I am left wondering if this book itself was written and published under the same program.The stories contained therein are certainly plausible, and I believe much of it.But as the author well knows, a little truth makes for the best lies.The reader is left wondering how much to believe, and I am sure will believe only what their previous political inclinations let them believe.
I am a bit baffled by the 5 stars reviews previously posted.Perhaps my hopes were too high when I began reading this book.It is interesting and worth a good read.It is written well enough to be read in a couple of days.It is not a five star book, however. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Starting with a bang!!!!!!!!
This was an excellent begining for what has gone to be, in my opnion, the best comic on the market today. After all these years the book continues to be awesome( with the exception of the Tenth Circle). This was truly a great sign of things to come.

4-0 out of 5 stars Kind of a ripoff
The story is great, just not long enough for the price.The art is mediocre.They really should collect about the first five or six volumes to make it worthwhile.Although the story was pretty cool, it wasn't good enough to justify the price and I won't be buying any of the later volumes.

5-0 out of 5 stars great beginning
It was a great begining to the JLA series and all that I have to say is that the JLA could woop the Avengers or X-mens sorry butts any day. ... Read more
