During the course of American history, wrongful events have occurred and certain Americans have stood up and spoken out against these wrongs: Tom Paine, Edward R. Murrow, Daniel Ellsberg. Vincent Bugliosi takes his place in this special pantheon of patriots with his powerful, brilliant, and courageous expose of crime by the highest court in the land. When an article he wrote on this topic appeared in The Nation magazine in February 2001, it drew the largest outpouring of letters and e-mail in the magazine's 136-year history, tapping a deep reservoir of outrage. The original article is now expanded, amended, and backed by amplifications, endnotes, and the relevant Supreme Court documents.

for those of you born not so long ago, this book will likely not make sense to you, as it has nothing to do with the current trump/clinton civil war. however, way back when, there was a tie between the demos and the republicans, in the vote for Chief Executive. And it all came down to the Supreme Court, to decide. Hence, this book.////Vincent Bugliosi sprang to fame as a result of having prosecuted the Manson Family, and having written his bestseller, HELTER- SKELTER, on the case. He was a District Attorney for Los Angeles County. Somewhere in this slim nonfiction book, occurs the following paragraph: 'There was enormous, not limited, self-interest behind the votes of the five Justices who delivered the election to Bush. And they were able to do what they did because at their core, and at their moment of truth, their character came up seriously wanting.'/// Well, i would like to parrot, in a somewhat derisive as well as cynical tone: ' Somewhere during the writing of his anti-conspiracy theories tome, Bugliosi must surely have discovered within himself the urge to write the truth about that (the JFK assassination) event. That he did not, tells us a lot about his character, toward the end of his lifespan.'
