George Washington was an 'illiterate, unread' liar who the other Founding Fathers couldn't wait to see the back of, claims a new biography on The Father of his Country. Buying teeth from his slaves at a third of the market price,refusing to free them, and causing conflict that eventually led the the start of 'humanity's first world war' are among the many ethical and moral missteps the country's first president made, claims new book 'You Never Forget Your First: A Biography of George Washington' by historian Alexis Coe. The book was released this Presidents' Day weekend, coinciding with the broadcast of the History Channel's new three-part series 'Washington'

After all, the founders CAN'T have any legitimacy. Oh, no!! Got to tear 'em down!! Alexis Coe, probably had it ghost written for him by Schiff's team of propagandists because Alex is the ignorant illiterate, and liberals always project their own short-comings and villainy on their opposition.

Another rat woman passing rumor as truth to tear down a man who it can easily be argued saved and created America. A country so great even a weasel woman can make a buck smearing a great man. He certainly had faults, but they were FAR outweighed by his greatness. Taking one quote from John Adams for her proof is ironic. After a literally 5 second search on Bing I find this- Adams hoped the president would be referred to as, 'His highness, the President of the United States of America, and Protector of the Rights of the Same.' The suggestion enraged many, amused some, and was supported by few. He lost the fight over titles and made fast enemies with several of the Senators he was constitutionally obligated to preside over. Adams was savaged in the press, derided in the Senate and denounced by one of his oldest and closest friends. Not simply an isolated incident of political tone-deafness, this event set the stage for the campaign against Adams as a monarchist and provided further proof of his being woefully out of touch. Gee Coe, sounds like someone who looked down on his superior, right? Washington held the Continental Army together and with guts and brilliance beat the Hessians at Trenton twice and Cornwallis at Princeton, who six years later surrendered the mightiest Empire on Earth to the man this bitter, stupid, woman tries to belittle. His troops followed him thru bleeding feet, near starvation, overwhelming enemies, no pay except for what he paid them out of his own pocket, because they knew he was great. They knew he was brave and they knew he respected them as the best soldiers he could lead for the promise of America. At crucial, pivotal points that man was all that allowed the Revolution to succeed. Now we've sunk to the point where the population is so egocentric and stupid they forget history, context and look to this grinning fool to write a gossipy story about him to earn her a dollar. What a female dog.

Mt. Vernon is in Virginia, not Vermont! Is that Coe’s error or the Daily Rag’s? I think there may be a problem with the Rag’s reporting. Google Alexis Coe before criticizing her and the book. And check out Doris Kearns Goodwin as well. There’s something wrong here and it’s with the Daily Rag.

Will not put any money is this woman's pocket by buying her book. But wonder if she revealed in the cherry tree scandal that George bought his chain saw from Sears. If it weren't for Washington I'd have to pretend that I care about The Queen's birthday. And drive on the left side of the road. And have to deal with those idiotic monetary units such as how many brass farthings are in a guinea. Next thing you know we will be told Johnny Appleseed planted prune trees.

This is textbook Marx, and part of the same strategy Bernie Sanders is using. Persuade people that their country is terrible (this book). Promise them a Utopian future. Convince them to vote away their liberty. Then enslave them. Mao, Stalin, Castro, Chavez...And extreme poverty and serfdom always result.

Was Alexis personal friends with George ? She said he slapped a slave so hard "he whirled around like a top" Yeah I can see Alexis and a feral ticking me off like that. Maybe somebody will throw the book at her because "it's fun" like her web page says. My ancestors were colonist with a long memory. It would have been mentioned when there was a land deal with George.

Actually George Washington was one of the richest men in Virginia when he signed on to lead the army during the revolution and had the MOST to lose. If the revolution failed he would have lost all his land, money, and probably his life as well.

This reminds me of a story about Lyndon Johnson. He made a completely vile accusation against his rival for a Texas office. So vile, his aide asked him in a shocked voice if Lyndon actually believed the lie. Lyndon said "No." When the aide asked why Lyndon had lied so maliciously, Lyndon replied "Let the Son of a B. deny it." The author has taken a page for Johnson.

The "Father of Our Country" was not available to set the 'record' straight. George Orwell from his book 1984: “Those who control the present, control the past and those who control the past control the future.” People who lived and remember, KNOW when the spinmeisters try to BS into believing that those who came before us were bad people, and those contemporary politicians are ALL BAD except for Hitlery, Nobama, etc It is a real character flaw to try to put someone up by putting others down, and we see more and more that there can NEVER be anyone which the liberal left ever approves of unless they are a thorn in the side of the conservatives-- the literal WORSHIP of John McPain comes to mind... Do NOT be deceived by these lame attempts to slander and de-legitimize our Founders.

Coe is attempting to write about a time when men were men and women were baking bread in wood-fired ovens. Old George whipped the Redcoats and their Hessians, turned his back on Washington and went home to his farm after refusing the presidency and/or a king's crown. If that's "illiterate" I'll take it. She is supported by the New York TImes and Harvard so 'nuff said.

Washington was not illiterate. Washington did not have the formal education his elder brothers received at Appleby Grammar School in England, but he did learn mathematics, trigonometry, and land surveying. He was a talented draftsman and map-maker. By early adulthood he was writing with "considerable force" and "precision",[11] however his writing displayed little wit or humor. In pursuit of admiration, status, and power, he tended to attribute his shortcomings and failures to someone else's ineffectuality.[12] Snobby Alexis doesn’t understand that many of our country’s leaders and prominent businessmen did not have the “formal educations” for which so many young people now are trying to pay off… My late grandfather was a business leader in Pittsburgh, built many of the public buildings - Carnegie libraries, churches, courthouses - and had only gone to school until he was 12. His Scotsman stepfather pulled him out of school and sent him to the mines “to make a man out of him”. At 6’4, he ended up an imposing man with a great mind, and with many skills that others did not possess. I didn’t know Washington. Neither did Alexis Coe. Imagine what they will write about Donald Trump… BTW, Alexis Coe writes books about the LGBTXYZ crowd, and has won an award for that.

Some facts for Washington haters. He personally led troops in battle. At times riding between the front lines to rally his men. Bullet holes thru his coat and hat and horses shot out from under him. All real, not made up after the fact. He was in the thick of battle more than once. In a 2012 poll by the British Army museum, George Washington was still the number one foe of the British Empire. When he died Royal Navy ships lowered their colors to half mast. Captain Patrick Ferguson, a 33-year-old Scotsman reputed to be the finest shot in the British army had Washington in his sights and according to him could have put a half dozen balls in him before he was out of his reach, but he could not bring himself to shoot a man in the back, 'but it was not pleasant to fire at the back of an unoffending individual, who was acquitting himself very coolly of his duty—so I let him alone.' This and other deadly situations where he emerged unharmed were why he wrote this- By the all-powerful dispensations of Providence, I have been protected beyond all human probability or expectation; for I had four bullets through my coat, and two horses shot under me, yet escaped unhurt, although death was leveling my companions on every side of me.' After crossing the Delaware river for the first Battle of Trenton, at least 2 men froze to death on the 11 mile march from the Washington.s Crossing to Trenton. This was followed by brutal conditions at Valley Forge and six more years of war. THAT is the kind of loyalty and respect his troops had for him. Bloody footprints in the snow was a real thing. The stupidity of backbiters who claim he wasn't much of a tactical General, is simply upended by the fact that Washington's tactics, planning, daring and strategic thinking FORCED the British Empire to give up every one of their colonies in America. So humiliated by their defeat that Cornwallis refused to hand over his sword personally. That is actual history, not the raving lies from a cowardly woman trying to pervert history.

The 73-year-old singer often sounds off about Trump and the political landscape on her Twitter page. Wednesday was no exception as the outraged celebrity jabbed Trump’s detractors for referring to his actions as “unprecedented.”

Hollywood commodifies women. It always has and, the #MeToo movement notwithstanding, it always will. Maybe, then, it shouldn't be a surprise that on Wednesday news broke that Steven Spielberg’s 23-year-old daughter Mikaela is going to make it on her own commodifying herself as soft porn artist selling films highlighting her big breasts. (snip) We don’t know what went on in the house of Stephen Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, but their child Mikaela was an unhappy child and a troubled young adult – and now seems to have decided that the best way to empower herself is through pornography

Appearing Tuesday on the Fox Business Network, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) dismissed record-low black unemployment under President Donald Trump, stating black Americans “were fully employed during slavery.” A transcript is as follows: NEIL CAVUTO: As you’ve been seeing with Michael Bloomberg, he’s been jumping in the polls on the heels of his very expensive, pricey ad buys if you include $125 million slated for Super Tuesday. Could you, would you back him? REP. JAMES CLYBURN: I’m going to back whoever our nominee is — Absolutely. CAVUTO: Even with the things he’s said about African-Americans? Does that bother you? REP. CLYBURN: Not as much as what Trump has said about African-Americans.

Forget Lincoln and Douglas. Forget Nixon and Kennedy. Hell, forget the Athenians and the Melians back during the Peloponnesian War. Last night’s Democratic primary slagfest in Nevada was the greatest debate in all of human history. Oh, was it glorious — the sheer raging hostility spraying across the stage as every campaign besides the Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg bids face the desperate possibility each might fade into the woodwork against the Bernie surge and the Bloomberg billions. No, my friends, everybody was wearing steel-tipped boots and going right for the crotch. Those weren’t snowflakes. They were nunchucks.

Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders lost his cool when former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg called him the “best known socialist” who “happens to be a millionaire with three houses.” A fiery end to what had already been a contentious Democratic primary debate, which included the billionaire businessman for the first time, was sparked by NBC anchor Lester Holt’s question to Sanders about two-thirds of voters being “uncomfortable with a socialist candidate for president.”
