1 review about Lies the Government Told You

Stunning and chilling in its view of America's deterioration

I’m a huge admirer of Judge Andrew Napolitano and was delighted to be offered his new book for a Vine review. Lies the Government Told You is no quick read, because the judge goes into detail about the myriad of things we learn in school that are not true all the way to Constitutional amendments that are troublesome. And he does it in detail, so be prepared to move through this book a few pages at a time.

The best summary of Lies the Government Told You comes straight from Judge Napolitano’s website.

“The government’s lies have become our country’s heritage, passed down generationally and accepted over time as status quo. We allow our leaders to regulate, under false pretenses, every area of our supposedly free lives: What we eat, how our money is spent, how we protect ourselves. The basic tenets of living in a free society–the primacy of the individual and limited government–are violated routinely and with little objection from those most affected.”

“Judge Napolitano traces the deterioration of American freedom year by year, event by event, from the birth of the U.S. government to the economic and military crises of today.”

Judge Napolitano sets out to expose lies the public has bought into and which the government perpetuates. As a Constitutional lawyer, Judge Napolitano knows whereof he speaks. You will find his book both fascinating and inforgettable. The judge is bi-partisan, so lies and hypocriscy on both sides are exposed as he writes of seventeen perpetuated by the government of the Unites States.

One of the most troubling to me is the “Takings Clause” of the fifth amendment, whereby the government can, by right, seize your property, even if you’ve paid it off, for “public use.” (Lest you think I kid, this is going on right now all over the country!) Don’t miss the story of the federal Reserve which is not Federal but was an organization started by an elitist group of bankers.

The judge discusses the origins of Populism and Progressivism and shows how they affect our current government, and subsequently, us. FEMA and its ill-preparedness for disaster response is yet another target in his well-written tome.

You will learn about the founding of our country, events such as Pearl Harbor and the General Motors bailout and you will see the lies exposed and also the disrespect the current administration holds for our Constitution. If you hold views similar to Judge Andrew Napolitano, I urge you to add the masterful work to your library. And if you don’t, why not educate yourself by reading an unbiased report from a Constitutional scholar?

Two thumbs up on this one.

This book sounds like a must read that both my fiance and I can enjoy and that's usually quite rare! The "Takings Clause" is quite disturbing and, no, I didn't know that. Thanks so much for sharing, I'm going to go find it in the library :)

Thank you EcoMama. I appreciate your comment. Sometimes I hesitate to post a review that puts me in a political camp, but I felt Judge Andrew's book is one that should be read so the misinformed might learn our true history. For sure, the Mainstream media is doing their darndest to keep this from the American public.

Sounds like a great book! Isn't it funny how anyone who is aware of these facts about our government can readily expect to be called a 'conspirator'. I think it is sad that most Americans have no clue what is really going on and are openly being lied to. Thanks for the review!
