Newsmax Rising Bestsellers – Week of March 6, 2023

Newsmax Rising Bestsellers – Week of March 6, 2023


By    |   Friday, 10 March 2023 03:58 PM EST

Two of Newsmax’s Rising Bestsellers might come under the heading, “How far we have fallen?” In one, the lockdowns and restrictions resulting from COVID-19 pandemic are compared to the fascism of the Third Reich. In another, a young woman who escaped North Korea found a woke, politically corrupt culture instead of the freedom she sought.

For sports fans fascinated by the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing scandal that rocked Major League Baseball, you’ll get all the inside dope. And this week’s fictional selection could have been penned by Charles Dickens in an earlier age. But the first offering is one written by an “otherworldly” star of a former popular TV series.

Be an Angel: Devotions to Inspire and Encourage Love and Light Along the Way,”  by Roma Downey (Convergent Books)

Roma Downey knows something about angels. She portrayed Monica the angel in the CBS television series “Touched by an Angel” throughout its nine-season run. “I want to encourage you, as I’ve been encouraged, to live like an angel on Earth,” she writes. “I want you to join me in speaking words of hope to a hurting world, bringing light into darkness.” Downey’s latest book is replete with moving scripture and reflections of gratitude, friendship, faith, and courage, and is the perfect go-to volume for anyone needing to be uplifted or inspired. “For dreamers and students, thinkers and searchers, Roma Downey’s ‘Be an Angel’ is a collection of spellbinding essays that reads like a devotional. Its tone is enlightening and encouraging,” wrote Claire Fullerton for New York Journal of Books. “It’s a beautiful book you’ll want to keep at your bedside and give to your family and friends.” (Nonfiction)

Demon Copperhead,” by Barbara Kingsolver (Harper)

Inspired by the Charles Dickens classic, “David Copperfield,” this tells the tale of an orphaned boy growing up in rural southern Appalachia. He survives despite the failings of foster care, child labor, a derelict school system, addiction, and failed love interests. He manages to make it through life with what he inherited from his deceased father —good looks, copper-colored hair, and an athletic prowess. "May be the best novel of 2022 . . . Equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking, this is the story of an irrepressible boy nobody wants, but readers will love,” said Ron Charles, writing for The Washington Post. (Fiction)

Rise of the Fourth Reich: Confronting COVID Fascism with a New Nuremberg Trial, So This Never Happens Again,” by Steve Deace and Daniel Horowitz (Post Hill Press)

Steve Deace and Daniel Horowitz liken the tyrannical lockdowns and mandates imposed upon American citizens for years in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to nothing short of homegrown fascism — the Third Reich. And they argue that the people who imposed the restrictions must be held accountable so that it never happens again — just as those responsible for the Third Reich were held accountable at the Nuremberg trials. At first blush, comparing the COVID-19 mandates to the Third Reich may appear to be a bit extreme. However, as Deace recently told Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, “we keep repeating history.” He then listed some of election practices that the pandemic prompted, including:

  • Ballot harvesting
  • Unsecured drop boxes
  • Universal mail-in voting

These, in turn, led to what was arguably the least secure election in American history. “It’s very hard to ignore the parallels,” Deace continued. “What has been ushered in is a bio, medical, fascist state.” Add to that we’ve now learned that nine of 10 COVID deaths in England during 2021-2022 were people who were fully vaccinated. (Nonfiction)

While Time Remains: A North Korean Defector's Search for Freedom in America,” by Yeonmi Park (Threshold Editions)

Park, who previously described her escape from North Korea in “In Order To Live, A North Korean Girl’s Journey To Freedom,” reveals in her latest work that she’s definitely not a fan of the “woke” culture that has taken over America. She escaped to what she believed was a country based on freedom — freedom of thought, belief, and speech — until she attended classes at Columbia University. While there, she was inundated with anti-Western sentiments in the classroom and an emphasis on political correctness. She thought, “even North Korea isn’t this nuts.” Park told The New York Post that she couldn’t believe she would be asked to do “this much censoring of myself” at a university in the United States. “I literally crossed the Gobi Desert to be free and I realized I’m not free, America’s not free,” she said. Her book is a reminder of what we must do to re-establish and cherish the principles of freedom upon which America was founded. (Nonfiction)

Winning Fixes Everything: How Baseball's Brightest Minds Created Sports' Biggest Mess,’ by Evan Drellich (Harper)

Drellich is the reporter who first broke the story of the Houston Astros’ cheating scandal. His original report of the team’s sign stealing just gave the bare facts. But as the late radio legend Paul Harvey might say, “now for the rest of the story.” “Winning Fixes Everything” is a must read for any modern baseball fan who is even remotely aware of the Astros’ sign stealing shenanigans,” wrote Matthew LaMar for SB Nation. “While the 2019 article is deep and includes many key quotes about the event, Drellich spares no expense at including a vast array of information and insider knowledge about the event in the book.” (Nonfiction)
