The appeal of the strong-man ruler, sailing in from on high to fix a broken system is nothing new. It was the same charismatic ´´champion-of-the-people´´ sales pitch that brought anti-democratic dictators such as Hugo Chavez, Mussolini, and the Kim family to power in the 20th century. While not qualified or temperamentally fit for the presidency, Donald Trump is a remarkable salesman. He´s also a decent brand-advocate and an accomplished con-artist. By tapping into the textbook elements of fascism (nationalism, authoritarianism, militarism, and the scapegoating of immigrants and minorities) Trump has produced a toxic, but darkly alluring political brand, one based in fear and falsehoods. In Believe Me, B. Joey Basamanowicz dissects 21 outright lies Donald Trump has perpetrated since announcing his candidacy in the summer of 2015. From empty promises, to revisionist histories, to baseless attacks on his opponents, Donald Trump has become a larger-than-life, Trumped-up caricature of the slimy, say-anything politician. Believe Me probes Trump´s opportunistic manipulations of a Washington-weary public, while pondering the unprecedented dangers posed by a Donald Trump presidency. 1. Language: English.

The brilliants changed everything. Since 1980, 1% of the world has been born with gifts we´d only dreamed of. The ability to sense a person´s most intimate secrets, or predict the stock market, or move virtually unseen. For thirty years the world has struggled with a growing divide between the exceptional...and the rest of us. Now a terrorist network led by brilliants has crippled three cities. Supermarket shelves stand empty. 911 calls go unanswered. Fanatics are burning people alive. Nick Cooper has always fought to make the world better for his children. As both a brilliant and an advisor to the president of the United States, he´s against everything the terrorists represent. But as America slides toward a devastating civil war, Cooper is forced to play a game he dares not lose - because his opponents have their own vision of a better world. And to reach it, they´re willing to burn this one down. From Marcus Sakey, ´´the master of the mindful page turner´´ (Gillian Flynn) and ´´one of our best storytellers´´ (Michael Connelly), Book Two of the Brilliance Saga is a relentless thrill ride that will change the way you look at your world - and the people around you. 1.

The American Revolution is often portrayed as a high-minded, orderly event whose capstone, the Constitution, provided the ideal framework for a democratic, prosperous nation. Alan Taylor, two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, gives us a different creation story in this magisterial history of the nation´s founding. Rising out of the continental rivalries of European empires and their native allies, Taylor´s Revolution builds like a ground fire overspreading Britain´s mainland colonies, fueled by local conditions, destructive, hard to quell. Conflict ignited on the frontier, where settlers clamored to push west into Indian lands against British restrictions, and in the seaboard cities, where commercial elites mobilized riots and boycotts to resist British tax policies. When war erupted, patriot crowds harassed loyalists and nonpartisans into compliance with their cause. Brutal guerrilla violence flared all along the frontier, from New York to the Carolinas, fed by internal divisions as well as the clash with Britain. Taylor skillfully draws France, Spain, and native powers into a comprehensive narrative of the war that delivers the major battles, generals, and common soldiers with insight and power. With discord smoldering in the fragile new nation through the 1780s, nationalist leaders such as James Madison and Alexander Hamilton sought to restrain unruly state democracies and consolidate power in a federal Constitution. Assuming the mantle of ´´we the people´´, the advocates of national power ratified the new frame of government. But their opponents prevailed in the presidency of Thomas Jefferson, whose vision of a Western ´´empire of liberty´´ aligned with the long-standing, expansive ambitions of frontier settlers. White settlement and black slavery spread west, setting the stage for a civil war that nearly destroyed the union created by the founders. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Bramhall.

Mitchell Garrison has made a terrible mistake. While on a class field trip to the museum, Mitchell´s friend, Howard, dares him to snatch a small, unguarded artifact from around the neck of an old, emerald suit of armor. Cracking under the pressure of his pal calling him ´´chicken,´´ Mitchell reluctantly agrees, but soon comes to regret it. That night, with the stolen piece of history tucked safely under his bed, Mitchell finds it difficult to sleep. It isn´t very long after he closes his eyes that he has his first nightmare. Terrible visions of monsters, beasts, and wild men attack him in his sleep, trying to stop him from reaching his final opponent, an ominous, emerald suit of armor... just like the one at the museum! The dream always ends the same way; the knight strikes Mitchell down. When things from the dreamworld start happening in real life, Mitchell pleads with Howard and their other friend, Keri, for help. He knows in his gut that he must return the artifact to where it belongs... before the Knightmare comes true. 1. Language: English. Narrator: full cast.
