“Dragon Skin” Authors Engage Alan Morell, Creative Management Partners for Book to Film Option Rights

I just got this press release. The book shows how our troops were given inferior body armor: 


“Dragon Skin” Authors Joe Trippi, Patrick Hayes and Jules Radcliff Engage Alan Morell, Creative Management Partners for Book to Film Option Rights


“Dragon Skin”The Amazing True Story of a Congressional Hearing, a Charlatan, and a Game-Changing Body Armor                                              
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, Sept. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Announced today, “Dragon Skin” Authors Joe Trippi, Patrick Hayes, and Jules Radcliff have engaged as their Literary and Broadcast Agent, Alan Morell of Creative Management Partners LLC in Beverly Hills CA for their Book to Film Option rights.  Mr. Trippi, (former FOX and current CNN Analyst) is a character featured in the Hugh Jackman upcoming fall film SONY release, “Front Runner”, the true story of Gary Hart and his presidential bid. 

Said the Authors Joe Trippi, Patrick Hayes, and Jules Radcliff : “As first time Authors for our book to film, we went through a thorough investigative process for representation and unanimously selected Alan Morell of the Creative Management Partners in Beverly Hills to champion our true story narrative. We know there is a huge, international audience for this timely and shocking story, and more than a few reporters will be on pins and needles over fears their own roles will be revealed. The blogosphere is going to go wild.”
Said Agent Alan Morell, Creative Management Partners: “My clients, Joe Trippi, Patrick Hayes, and Jules Radcliff have captured perfectly in Dragon Skin, the incredible true Body Armor story, inside the Washington DC beltway, whose scandal reached the very top political international levels; with Dragon Skin, insider glossary terms language known to very few. It’s going to be a very exciting Book and Book to Film.” 

ABOUT “DRAGON SKIN”
This book tells two extraordinary, improbable, and intertwined true stories. One revolves around the consequences of the media’s love affair with narratives. The other recounts what happened when military families engaged in an amazing act of self-help, doing for their loved ones in combat what the political class in Washington, D.C. refused to do. The subject is the saga of Dragon Skin body armor, still the source of misunderstandings and controversy, and for the first time anywhere this book reveals that its media-acclaimed inventor, Murray Neal, was a charlatan, a fact ignored by the media and hidden by the House Armed Services Committee in one of the most controversial and highly-publicized episodes of the Iraq War. 

OVERVIEW:
It was a scandal that threatened the presidential ambitions of Hillary Clinton and of an obscure Chicago pol by the name of Barack Obama ... until the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) put an end to it. Was Dragon Skin body armor the best personal protection in the world? Generals and visiting VIPs in the Iraq war zone were wearing it, the Secret Service bought Dragon Skin, as did other elite federal agencies. And yet, it was being denied to regular troops. 

The media had gleefully flogged the story ever since Massachusetts senator John Kerry first lit the fuse on it in his challenge to the presidency of George Bush. The Army’s inexplicable resistance to making Dragon Skin available to the men and women doing the fighting and dying in the barbarity of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was an irresistible narrative, serving as a proxy for the political war at home on Bush, on the Iraq War, and on the Republican brand generally. When that narrative got around to blaming it on corruption, something utterly unexpected happened: The grass roots of the left joined with the grass roots of the right, unleashing a fury directed at politicians in both parties. Business-as-usual in Washington, D.C. was about to be upended.  
The only challenge the Chairman of the HASC faced was in coming up with a way to put an end to what was by then known as the Army v. Dragon Skin controversy without revealing political dynamite that would make everyone look like fools. His staff did their job, and both Dragon Skin and its media-acclaimed inventor, Murray Neal—who had become a modern hero and symbol of hope for military families besieging the Congress for answers to why their loved ones in combat did not have Dragon Skin—were thoroughly discredited. The billion-dollar body armor cartel supplying the Army under monopoly contracts breathed a sigh of relief, as did Hillary Clinton, one of the big recipients of the political money they splashed around in Washington, D.C. 
To this day the name Dragon Skin ignites controversy and misunderstandings. In recent focus groups with defense industry professionals both in and out of government, Dragon Skin was cited as an example of Pentagon resistance to anything new, especially if put forward by a small company unfamiliar with the Kabuki of military procurement. Nothing could be further from the truth. 

This book, after leading off with the HASC hearing that left military families fuming, picks up with the extraordinary story of how those families turned the tide and took Dragon Skin right to the welcoming arms of the U.S. Army. 

It was a rescue campaign designed, run, and managed by an unusual—and unusually well connected—team of insiders. The authors were three leading members of that team, and over the course of the effort it came to be supported by a never-before-seen network among the military families who are to be found all over the federal government, at all levels, who opened doors, shared insights, and prayed for the team’s success. The story tells of the involvement of such major figures as Barry Zorthian, described by Life Magazine as one of the most important figures of the Viet Nam era, and later, in his role with Radio Free Europe, one of the architects of the collapse of the Soviet Union. And of John Young, a pillar of the defense industry establishment, a man once in charge of major Pentagon programs and credited with developing some of the nation’s strongest weapons systems. All of them were motivated by their own roles as veterans, as members of military families themselves, or by a conviction affirmed early in the process that Dragon Skin was exactly as advertised: a supremely better armor technology that would save lives.  

The task as initially seen by the team was to balance a visceral dislike of Murray Neal among many government defense officials against intriguing reports from some of the same individuals that Dragon Skin might be welcomed under the right circumstances. The foreseeable challenges involved surviving the assaults of the body armor cartel while overcoming the animus still simmering within the HASC. The unforeseen challenge turned out to be Murray Neal himself. 

The media’s fawning and uncritical coverage of Murray Neal had not only turned him into an international celebrity but bestowed on him an unearned credibility and gravitas as a critic of the Army bureaucracy. The military families that first came to his rescue deferred to him even as he asked them for money, which they readily gave him. As the rescue campaign got underway, working with him proved to be like flying a 747 with a rattlesnake in the cockpit.    

The book follows the team of insiders as the Dragon Skin rescue effort—fueled by a sense of urgency in the race to save lives—first took shape in a meeting that included well-known political operatives from both sides of the aisle. As the strategy unfolded against great odds, first in South Africa, then in the UK, and finally in the U.S., Murray Neal’s role and unexpected interference with the strategy also surfaces. Beginning with his odd circumstances in Fresno where he was surrounded by ne’er-do-wells, the story follows a rescue effort that is ultimately wildly successful externally, even as Neal’s behavior internally ranges from botching a simple assignment to install armor in a FedEx jet, to his explosive and disruptive confrontation with a former member of SEAL Team Six. That former SEAL was personally assisting the management team as the SEAL Command prepared to become the official sponsor of Dragon Skin in an Army test that would mark the success of the entire rescue campaign. 

On the eve of that all-important test Murray Neal took off in the dead of night. The revelations that followed pulled back the curtain on what the HASC chairman had worked so hard to keep from the public’s eye. Murray Neal was a charlatan who had scammed the Army, the nation, and, unforgivably, those whose lives might have been saved by a better body armor.

Little Free Library Celebrates Milestone 75,000th Library

A deserving elementary school in Jenks, Oklahoma, received the Little Free Library book exchange through LFL’s Impact Library Program


Hudson, Wis., Aug. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Little Free Library® (LFL) placed its 75,000th book exchange at Jenks East Elementary in Jenks, Oklahoma, a diverse school where 32 languages are spoken. This milestone Library joins LFL’s worldwide network of book exchanges. Since the Little Free Library nonprofit was established just six years ago, it has grown into an award-winning global force for literacy and community-building, with registered book exchanges in 88 countries.

“With 75,000 Little Libraries around the world, we estimate that 54 million books will be shared this year alone and 900,000 neighbors will meet each other for the first time,” says Little Free Library founder and executive director Todd H. Bol. “But book access remains a critical challenge in so many communities around the country. We believe everyone has the right to read, and we want to help make that a reality.”

The 75,000th book exchange was granted to Jenks East Elementary via the nonprofit’s Impact Library Program, a donor-driven initiative that places Little Libraries in areas where they can improve book access and reading motivation. In addition to the book exchange, Jenks East Elementary will receive free books each month for a year.

At Jenks East Elementary, a community of more than 1,600 Pre-K to fourth graders, more than 67 percent of students qualify for free and reduced lunch and 25 percent are English-language learners. The student body includes resettled refugees from Myanmar as well as immigrants from Mexico, Syria, China, Puerto Rico, Korea, Russia and Iran.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to further develop their love of reading, and to share that passion and knowledge with their classmates,” said Ryan Glaze, Site Principal at East Elementary. “We feel so fortunate to be selected by Little Free Library for this occasion. At Jenks Public Schools, we want to create as many unique learning opportunities for our students as we possibly can, and having a Little Free Library on our campus is one more way for our kids to feel connected and for them to be inspired.”

The special launch ceremony of the Little Free Library at East Elementary included a ribbon-cutting, free books for students, remarks from Bol and story time with Sean Mahan, a former NFL player who attended Jenks East Elementary and graduated from Jenks High School.

“We are so pleased to share the world's 75,000th Little Free Library book exchange with Jenks East Elementary,” notes Bol. “Schools and educators play a vital role in nurturing a love of reading in our youth, and we're delighted to help ignite that love.”

Little Free Library has worked with hundreds of schools throughout its existence. LFL is now a partner to the National Education Association.

Delilah, the Most Listened-To Woman


Delilah, the Most Listened-To Woman on American Radio, Announces Her Latest Book, One Heart At A Time

 “Delilah’s life story and advice are compelling. Her heart shines through in challenging trials and hard-won triumphs. No wonder she has so much love in her life.” —Robin Roberts

“Delilah speaks from the heart, writes from the heart, and touches the heart.  This is a book everyone needs to read.”— Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
“Delilah’s stories hum with the joy of serving others. Fans of her homespun style will enjoy her stories of care, concern, and love.” — Publishers Weekly
NEW YORK, July 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The most listened-to woman on American radio, Delilah, has a voice that 9 million listeners know and love. On air for 25 years, her shows are heartfelt, often hilarious, and warm. Listeners feel they know her; she is their co-pilot through challenges and triumphs five hours per night, seven nights a week. Now, she has written ONE HEART AT A TIME, an inspiring, uplifting, and motivating look at life, love, and faith to be published by RosettaBooks on October 16, 2018.
Called one of the “Most Influential Women in Radio” by Radio Ink, Delilah boldly and lovingly walks the talk—she has opened her heart to the country and her home to 10 adopted children, making her a mom to 13 children, with an effort underway to adopt a two-year-old baby boy to join the family. She is a syndicated radio host and the founder of an NGO called Point Hope, created in 2004 to be a voice for forgotten children and their families, helping them in the U.S., West Africa, and elsewhere.
Delilah speaks to us all. In today’s turbulent and uneasy world, there is more divisiveness, pain, and loneliness than ever before. Using stories from her extraordinary off-air life—full of trials, forgiveness, faith, and adventure (along with select well-executed pranks)—she encourages us to change this spiral by taking one person at a time into our understanding. She calls us to connect, one heart at a time, to lift others, and in the process, our communities and ourselves.
“In her easygoing style and characteristic, beloved voice, Delilah shares the real woman behind the microphone,” says Rosetta Books CEO Arthur Klebanoff. “She tells her deeply moving story as the series of miracles and prayers it is.”
Inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame and the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame, Delilah is the author of three previous books: Love Someone Today, Love Matters, and Arms Full of Love. One Heart At A Time will launch simultaneously in hardcover, e-book, and a Brilliance audiobook version read by Delilah, and is now available for pre-order. Visit www.oneheartatatime.com for more information.

New Book Explores the Texas Connections to the JFK Assassination

I remember vividly the day JFK was shot. Many of us will never forget. Whatever really happened on November 22, 1963, the official story is a lie. 

I just got this press release about a new book that is worth reading: 


New Book Explores the Texas Connections to the JFK Assassination
 
Noted researcher and political cartoonist Richard Bartholomew’s new book, THE DEEP STATE IN THE HEART OF TEXAS, takes a fresh – and often-stunning – new look into the forces behind the most important murder in 20thcentury American history. Available in paperback and Kindle beginning July 4, 2018, this book delivers truth in a detailed yet engaging style. From the alleged murder weapon, to the Zapruder film, to a vehicle possibly used in the assassination being found in Austin, as well as essays covering political strategies for the present and future, THE DEEP STATE IN THE HEART OF TEXAS provides real history in all its gory detail, without a need for theorizing.
 
“While I have always insisted that the assassination resulted from a collaboration including the most powerful people in the country, I also believed full well that a Texas axis was instrumental in carrying out the plot and cover-up.,” writes researcher Ed Tatro, of THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY, in his forward. “Richard Bartholomew’s research is an excellent place to continue searching for the truth.”
 
While the 45th American President continues to abuse the term “deep state,” it retains its original meaning as coined by Peter Dale Scott, in reference to the private corporate and public interests that intertwine with one another in the road to power. Bartholomew’s book goes beyond simple media biases into the actual machinations of how deep state events are planned and produced.
 
A co-founder and director of the Center for Deep Political Research, Richard Bartholomew’s research has appeared in many publications, including The Fourth Decade. He has also presented at various conferences over the years, including the the 2018 JFK Historical Group Conference in Sterling, VA, and his critique of Joan Mellen at the 2016 JFK Assassination Conference in Dallas, TX.

Whether it was a few months, years, decades, or centuries ago, every family has a story of how they arrived in America. This collection of 72 essays, compiled by Andrew Tisch and Mary Skafidas, celebrates the vastness and variety of immigration stories in America.
In 2016, Andrew Tisch was asked to speak at a swearing-in ceremony for one hundred new immigrants held at the New-York Historical Society. In researching his own family’s journey to the United States, it hit him that almost everyone has a story to share. He and Mary Skafidas decided to solicit stories from friends, associates, and others to capture the quintessential idea of the American dream.
“This book is intended to stand as a reminder of America’s distinctive culture and history,” said Andrew Tisch.
“As we collected these stories, we realized how immigrants have defined the scope of American greatness,” said Mary Skafidas.
Journeys includes essays by Alan Alda, Tony Bennett, Michael Bloomberg, Cory Booker, Barbara Boxer, Elaine Chao, Andrew Cuomo, Nancy Pelosi, Dr. Mehmet Oz,  Marlo Thomas and many more.
Read the fascinating tales of extraordinary and everyday Americans, including:
  • A governor’s grandfather who dug ditches and cleaned sewers, laying the groundwork for a budding nation
  • How a future cabinet secretary crossed the ocean at age eleven on a cargo ship
  • A young boy who fled violence in Budapest to become one of the most celebrated American football players
  • The girl who escaped persecution to become the first Vietnamese American woman ever elected to the U.S. Congress
All profits from the book will be donated to the New-York Historical Society and the Statue of Liberty Ellis Island Foundation. Share Your Story: Visit www.journeysanamericanstory.com to share your own Journey story.

“This highly readable collection of personal essays conveys the dreams and strengths of the immigrants who have come from around the world. It is a timely reminder of the essential role of immigrants in our national success story, including science, the arts, and economic well-being.  And you’ll likely find a reflection of your own family’s experience between these covers.”  —Abby Joseph Cohen, Senior Investment Strategist, Goldman Sachs

Zodiac killer identified? Detective reveals evidence

Infamous murders committed over a period of 60 years are now solved, according to author and veteran detective John Cameron. He has found evidence that the Zodiac killing spree, the Black  Dahlia murder, other unsolved murders, and even murders that ended in convictions of other people, were committed by one man, a man who was convicted of five murders.

Here's the press release about Cameron's book and the deal he signed with Reel Time:

RLTR - ReelTime Signs John Cameron Author of "It's Me Edward Wayne Edwards" Launching Multimedia Publishing Division Corresponding With National Exposure of The Most Chilling Discoveries in Serial Killer History


ReelTime Media and Veteran Detective Author John Cameron Have Partnered to Shed Light on Discovery that the Zodiak Killer Killed JonBenet 

Seattle, WA , April 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  ReelTime (OTCPK:RLTR) has signed a publishing and monetization agreement with veteran detective John Cameron author of “It's Me Edward Wayne Edwards The Serial Killer You Never Heard Of” which profiles the life of  what may  be the most prolific serial killer of all time. As part of the agreement the parties will split the profits derived from the sale of the book and its derivatives and will mutually promote the discoveries contained within it as well as what has been learned since its publication.

Although Ed Edwards was convicted of only 5 murders the discoveries presented in the book have led many to believe that the spree could have exceeded 60 people spanning over 60 years including many of the most famous murders of all time. Murders such as those committed by the Zodiac Killer, the deaths of Elizabeth Short, known as the Black Dahlia, JonBenet Ramsay, as well as the murders of Teresa Halbach and Laci Peterson, whose convicted killers already sit in prison. 

The book and evidence presented in it has recently gained national exposure in In Touch http://www.intouchweekly.com/posts/edward-edwards-jonbenet-ramsey-black-dahlia-156347 , and according to People http://people.com/crime/did-edward-edwards-murder-jonbenet-black-dahlia-zodiac-killer/ spawned a six-part series based on the book set to begin airing April 16. On The Paramount Network (formerly Spike) sparking perhaps the single most controversial discoveries in criminal history.  The first edition of "Its Me Edward Wayne Edwards The Serial Killer You Never Heard Of" can be purchased at www.itsmeededwards.com from Amazon in hard cover or e-book as of today. 

Veteran Detective/Author John Cameron exclaimed: “I believe some of the most famous murders in the last 60 years were created by this one man. I never set out to learn what I have learned but once I started down the rabbit hole I could not stop and am amazed at what I discovered.  Being able to partner with ReelTime will make a tremendous difference as to how many people will be able to experience and understand this truly shocking series of revelations. It is great to have a competent team of very bright individuals at ReelTime working with me on this.” 

Barry Henthorn CEO stated: “Sometimes a mans fate is chosen and other times it is discovered. John Cameron simply could not ignore his instincts nor the mountain of evidence that corroborated his discoveries.  We are committed and compelled to share his work contained in the book as well as additional revelations and evidence that further expand on the spree of murders committed by Edward Wayne Edwards that continue to compile.”
