Would you read this book? Here's the plot line, and it's a real pot boiler in tensions and intrigue:
A seemingly benign governor gets elected President of the United States. He's a fairly simple man, both in style and intellect. He's vulnerable to suggestions from his staff which the political party leaders chose for him. He didn't mind. He was a simple king.
Pressure begins to build in the middle east. A crisis is looming so the President, who's hardly traveled outside of his own country, delegates the management of US foreign policy-making to a small inner group a religious fanatical group of anti-Semitic, right wing Christians.
This clandestined group holds secret, yet official meetings with leaders of the middle east and their apocalyptic Christian groups. Together they chart a path for the United States to clear the way for a second coming of Christ.
Sounds kind of Dan Brown conspiracy-like, doesn't it?
This collective group draws up plans for the realignment of Israel's borders to be exactly as those foretold in the bible to bring about the apocalypse and ultimately the great Rapture.
The top guy in the US President's policy making for Africa and the Middle East works in secret with the extremist Christian apocalypse believers to assure them that the President had given permission for the "believers" to divy up the Gaza Strip and still be able to meet the bible's specifications. All Jews must be rounded up and forced into Israel so the Messiah can come down and remove them off the face of the earth, thus allowing for the full destruction of our planet, aka the rapture.
When the President gets wind of this plot, he surprises the plotters and reveals that he too is anti-Semitic and approves the plan. Everything is being secretly prepared for the impending arrival of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Complicating the plans is a single reporter who, while investigating another unjustified conflict in the region begun by the President and his warmongering staff, gets wind of these apocalyptic rumors. While looking into the plausibility of these acts against humanity, he's caught and forced to confront the Chief White House National Security adviser. Immediately the stonewalling and threats begin. Denials fly and while buying time, the half-crazed President's plot to bring about the end of the world continues in motion. It becomes a race against time.
The more the official denials come from the administration, the more implausible their refutes became, until ultimately it becomes almost impossible to stop the ticking clock. And in an plot-twist ending worthy of it's undoubted best seller status...
Oh, I don't want to give away the ending of the story for you... You'll just have to read it yourself, or better yet, watch the book trailer starring Rachel Maddow:
Kind of scary, isn't it? GW Bush and Adolph Hitler with similar plans for the Jews - convert and destroy. You can't make these things up. Only ask yourself why we let these people rise to power.
