How to Steal 40 Years of Elections

 

Over at the Federalist, Executive Editor Joy Pullman has a magnificent piece up detailing the things that made her gasp in Mollie Hemingway’s new book Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections.

The Pullman article is a rip-roaring read, and if you haven’t read Hemingway’s book by now, you will within 15 minutes of reading Pullman’s gazette of the work.  I’ll gazette Pullman here in turn, just to whet your appetite.  Following is a mighty condensation of what Pullman has said about Hemingway’s new book.  Just the first four points — Pullman herself has assembled seven points so far based on her reading to date: “… I’m not even done.

Luffing to Cuba: Michael Henry’s First “Non-Fiction” Book

 

I am not often at a loss for words, but in reading Michael Henry’s Luffing to Cuba, I find myself somewhat confounded. Part of that may be the Coda with which he finishes the book. Part is also the extreme changes to life we have experienced in the year since his adventure.

Michael Henry is a writer of many parts. Here on Ricochet he has often shared humorous fiction based on politics. They tend to be very light pieces. His fictional novels are mostly legal thrillers. They are serious in content, although there is often light banter between characters and light moments within the novels. I have commented before that his Willie Mitchell Banks character muddles through the stories rather than being the lantern-jawed tough guy who knows all the answers. Luffing to Cuba falls somewhere between the two while also being mostly non-fiction. Or perhaps I should say that it is non-fiction with flights of fancy interjected throughout. While in a way being of a piece and on the spectrum of his other writing, it has a very different feel, since the people and events are real.
