Washington Orders Impeachment: Donald Trump Cannot Carry Out Duties of the President

by Dave Masko

Washington Orders Impeachment, by Dave Masko. The first president of the United States would never, ever, condone the odious actions and words of the infamous New York City conman known as “the Donald,” or Donald Trump. In fact, this is a “crucial moment” in American history, said President George Washington (*pictured on the cover of this special “new journalism” report) who, unlike always lying Trump, said “I can’t tell a lie.” In fact, President Washington was morally opposed to Trump profanity and lies because this “Founding Father” distained anyone who was not truthful. In fact, President Washington viewed lying (*that Trump does daily with always lying media and tweet statements) as a “deal-breaker,” while President Washington is legend for firing, remov...

Punishing the Criminal Corpse, 1700-1840: Aggravated Forms of the Death Penalty in England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Peter King

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book analyses the different types of post-execution punishments and other aggravated execution practices, the reasons why they were advocated, and the decision, enshrined in the Murder Act of 1752, to make two post-execution punishments, dissection and gibbeting, an integral part of sentences for murder. It traces the origins of the Act, and then explores the ways in which Act was actually put into practice. After identifying the dominance of penal dissection throughout the period, it looks at the abandonment of burning at the stake in the 1790s, the rapid decline of hanging in chains just after 1800, and the final abandonment of both dissection and gibbeting in 1832 and 1834. It concludes that the Act, by creating differentiation in...

Investigating the Body in the Victorian Asylum: Doctors, Patients, and Practices (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Jennifer Wallis

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book explores how the body was investigated in the late nineteenth-century asylum in Britain. As more and more Victorian asylum doctors looked to the bodily fabric to reveal the ‘truth’ of mental disease, a whole host of techniques and technologies were brought to bear upon the patient's body. These practices encompassed the clinical and the pathological, from testing the patient's reflexes to dissecting the brain. Investigating the Body in the Victorian Asylum takes a unique approach to the topic, conducting a chapter-by-chapter dissection of the body. It considers how asylum doctors viewed and investigated the skin, muscles, bones, brain, and bodily fluids. The book demonstrates the importance of the body in nineteenth-century ...

Here is a genuine Little Big Man story, with all the color, sweep, and tragedy of a classic American western. It is the tale of Herman Lehmann, a captive of the Apaches on the Southern Plains of Texas and New Mexico during the 1870s.

Incredible memoir of Chaim Sawikin, a sixteen-year-old Jewish boy who was separated from his family at the start of World War II and then survived in the Soviet labor camp system. As he confronts every life-threatening situation, he draws upon his instincts and resourcefulness, while trying to retain the essential humanity instilled by his parents and his socialist upbringing.

Finally he looks back on these times with no answers, only more questions....

Ryker (Kings of Korruption MC Book 1)

by Geri Glenn

Charlotte

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve taken care of everyone around me, including my self-centered older sister, Anna. When her poor choices make us targets of the Devil’s Rejects Motorcycle Club, I grab her and we run like hell. A new city, a new job, a new life. It’s almost perfect – and then I meet Ryker.

He’s gorgeous, rugged and too cocky for his own damned good. But he’s a biker – exactly the type of man I’ve been running from. I have no business getting involved with a man like him. Too bad I can’t get him out of my head.

Ryker

As V.P. of the Kings of Korruption MC, I know all about violence and loss. In my world, getting involved with a woman never turns out well. Avoiding commitment isn’t something I ...

John Adams: A Captivating Guide to an American Founding Father Who Served as the Second President of the United States of America

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating life of John Adams, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!John Adams once wrote, “People and nations are forged in the fires of adversity.” That was very much Adams’ experience. Although he was often maligned, he didn’t deserve it. Having been born in the English colony of Massachusetts in 1735, he not only witnessed a new nation emerging from the shell of infancy, but he also participated in its growing pains. Adams was a man who was frequently asked to assume roles in which he had little experience, like that of a diplomat to France and England. In a sense, he was a part of the vanguard that the government had thrown into the fray. But why would the government choose him to represent their interests? Perhaps the main reason was that...

Emphatic (Soul Serenade Book 1)

by Kaylee Ryan

There comes a point in your life where you have to say enough is enough.

I wasted my college years on a guy who played with my head, played with my heart. I was blinded by the fairytale, the one that didn’t exist.

The day I gave up on the idea of happily ever after, my focus became me. Moving forward and establishing my career.

Until one day…

I didn’t expect him. My new boss, a six foot two, inked rock god. I believed I was working for the record label, I was wrong.

It’s impossible for me to keep my distance, believe me I’ve tried. He’s not who I expected him to be. He’s so much more he’s…Emphatic

Celebrated Native Americans

by Mike Rothmiller

Warriors, statesmen, prophets and scholars; they were the firmest of friends and the most formidable of foes. They are heroes and heroines of all manners in the often tragic, yet inspiring chronicle of The North American Native.Most—but not all—of the individuals whose lives are briefly described in this book were Chiefs. Some have become legends within American history and famous worldwide. But all were leaders in the immense struggle to preserve their treasured lands, customs, beliefs and way of life. With their tribesmen, they are intimately linked to America’s founding, westward expansion, and at times, the inhumane treatment they received at the hands of the United States Government. Since the first Europeans set foot in North America, Native Americans have played a vital ro...
