There´s the Freedom of Information Act, and then there´s Ventura´s way. The official spin on numerous government programs is flat-out bull, according to Jesse Ventura. In this incredible collection of actual government documents, Ventura, the ultimate nonpartisan truth-seeker, proves it beyond any doubt. He and Dick Russell walk listeners through 63 of the most incriminating programs to reveal what really happens behind the closed doors. In addition to providing original government data, Ventura discusses what it really means and how regular Americans can stop criminal behavior at the top levels of government and in the media. Among the cases discussed: The CIA´s top-secret program to control human behavior Operation Northwoods: the military plan to hijack airplanes and blame it on Cuban terrorists The discovery of a secret Afghan archive, information that never left the boardroom Potentially deadly healthcare cover-ups, including a dengue fever outbreak What the Department of Defense knows about our food supply but is keeping mum Although these documents are now in the public domain, the powers that be would just as soon they stay under wraps. Ventura´s research and commentary sheds new light on what they´re not telling you---and why it matters. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George K. Wilson.

Still unsolved, still baffling, still claiming new victims. Here are the untold stories. A pilot reports a strange haze enveloping his plane, then disappears; 11 hours after fuel starvation, as if calling from a void, he is heard 600 miles away. He requests permission to land, then vanishes forever. A freighter steaming over placid seas disappears without a trace. A pleasure yacht ghosts past without a soul onboard. A pilot calls for help because a ´´weird object´´ is harassing his plane. A jet collides with an ´´unknown´´ and is never found.... Into the Bermuda Triangle is the first comprehensive examination of these baffling disappearances in more than a generation. Drawing on official reports from the NTSB and other investigative agencies as well as interviews with scientists, theorists, and survivors, leading authority Gian Quasar not only sets the record straight on previously examined cases; he also offers a bulging file of new cases, the collective results of his 12-year investigation. In meticulous detail this unflinching account: Documents confirmed disappearances of airplanes and ships Gathers new testimony and reexamines old interviews from eyewitnesses and survivors Explores possible explanations ranging from zero-point energy to magnetic vortices Challenges our assumptions with the sheer weight of accumulated evidence In this age of technological and scientific discovery, there are still mysteries that transcend understanding. The Bermuda Triangle is one. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Prichard. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/graw/000229/bk_graw_000229_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Americans have debated the Constitution since the day it was signed, but rarely in its 223-year history have so many disagreed so fiercely about so much. Everywhere there seems to be debate about the Constitution´s meaning and message. The Tea Party, with its almost fanatical focus on the founding document, contends that its primary purpose is to restrain the federal government - but does it really say that? Among scholars, some believe the Constitution should be interpreted exactly as the framers wrote it, while others analyze the text just as closely to find the elasticity they believe the framers had in mind. But how could the founding fathers know about the world today, with DNA, sexting, airplanes, TV, Medicare, computers and Lady Gaga? In this probing and accessible book, Time´s editors bring the founding document to life, showing how it was written in a spirit of change and revolution and turbulence. With an introduction by one of America´s top jurists, an essay by Time managing editor Richard Stengel (former president of the National Constitution Center), and the full text of the 8,000-word Constitution, annotated to show its most controversial passages and little-known quirks, Time´s concise audio volume is an indispensable guide for the well-informed citizen. 1.

There´s no leverage like seduction...until love takes a bite of his plans. As the Indiana Jones of historical erotica, there is no document existing - or just rumored to exist - Adin Tredeger can´t unearth. Why he would risk the biggest coup of his career to join the mile-high club is beyond him. But the disarming, dark-eyed man who somehow enters Adin´s locked airplane washroom has him completely nude and coming apart. All without a whimper of protest. From that moment Adin and Donte Fedelta engage in an international battle of wit and cunning. The prize - a priceless, 500-year-old journal with illustrations so erotic it could make the Marquis de Sade blush. Yet Donte´s desire for the journal goes far beyond simple possession. The undead nobleman wrote it. And he´s not above using every trick in his otherworldly arsenal - including seduction - to get it back. Chemistry draws them together even as fortune tugs them apart. But when a third party joins the chase, they must unite to fight an enemy with a deadly goal - to erase Donte from history. This audiobook is a rerelease of a previously published book, with substantial rewrites. This title was originally released as Notturno. Warning: This product contains one cocky college professor, one centuries-old vampire who is out to show him who´s at the top of the food chain, and red wine. Because it goes so well with humble pie. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caleb Dickenson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/023819/bk_adbl_023819_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
The biography of Corporal Lee A. Horton in the early 1900s; his life, wars, losses and loves. Corporal Lee A. Horton found his destiny serving on three warfronts: the Philippines, the Mexican Border and the maelstrom of World War I. The story is filled with the true-life military experiences of a young American coming of age between 1908 and 1919, passed down through his family for generations. Some creative liberty has been taken to fill in the blanks, as many family members and contemporaries have passed on; but the primary narrative is based firmly in extensive and thorough local research. Family archives provided invaluable galleries of photographs, letters, post-cards and official documents. Lee´s story starts in his teenage years growing up in the rural Midwest. The story outlines his personal relationships, family and events leading to his decision to leave home to work on the railroads. In 1908, changing circumstances cause him to decide to join the Army for a three year enlistment. We follow him through his enlistment experience to his training with the First United States Field Artillery at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. He meets the renowned Geronimo, gains many invaluable skills and marvels at the newfangled airplane. He is then shipped over to the Philippines where his two year tour of duty is filled with danger of all sorts, deadly combat with the fearful Moro Islamic tribesmen and the discovery of his desire to make the military his career. He survives his tour and is discharged in 1911 - returning home to family and friends - and reestablishes himself there. His desire to serve drives him to join the local National Guard company with a close friend who plays a critical role in his future life. In 1916, his Guard regiment is activated and sent to the Mexican border to deal with the infamous Pancho Villa. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Utley.
