The Rothschilds: The Dynasty And The Legacy

by Michael W. Simmons

Who are the Rothschilds? Still making headlines today, their fascinating history stretches back to the Jewish ghetto in Frankfurt, Germany, where the first Rothschild ancestors lived in the House of the Red Shield. There, one man and his five brilliant sons made their fortune as court agents to a royal prince. It would take Napoleon’s earth-shattering quest to conquer Europe to scatter the five brothers to the four winds, but when the dust of war settled, there was a Rothschild brother and a Rothschild bank in five cities: London, Paris, Frankfurt, Naples, and Vienna. The era of haute finance had begun, and the legend of a banking dynasty more powerful than any royal family in history was established.

In this book, you will follow the progress of the Rothschild family through the centuries. Their ranks included not only bankers and financiers but doctors, scientists, bomb experts, and collectors who amassed not only some of the finest art collections in Europe, but also one of the finest bug collections. Find out for yourself how the Rothschilds prevented wars, crowned and uncrowned kings, helped win the battle of Waterloo, looked down their noses at Nazis, and established a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

Have you ever had to ask yourself what the meat that you were eating really was? What if it was human flesh? What if instead of serving you that side of pork your friend promised, you were instead served a side of human arm?

It sounds pretty disgusting, however, this is the most basic description of cannibalism. Cannibalism is the eating of human flesh, sometimes cooked, sometimes raw, sometimes after the person is dead and sometimes while they are still alive…

There were civilizations of the past where it was accepted for people to ingest the flesh as well as the blood of other humans, and archaeologists have proven that the act of cannibalism can be traced back to the Paleolithic Era… Kind of makes, you wonder if you really want to continue on with that Paleo diet, doesn’t it…?

Today, the act of cannibalism is not something that is accepted, in fact, it is considered dark, evil and one of the worst crimes a person could commit.

In this book, you will hear the stories of not only murderers but of those who took their sadistic act seven further, butchering the people, they killed and ingesting them.

These are the stories of some of the most vicious murders and acts of torture that have ever taken place. Murderers who toyed with their victims, and finally served them up with a side of crazy…

Diego’s Brooklyn

by Adrian Del Valle

Joe Barnes’ home is a 9X12 room on a quiet tree-lined street near Downtown Brooklyn. He borrowed $10,000 from the Irish Mob in “Hell’s Kitchen”, a lot of money in 1961. The first payment is well over due. He’s late by three months and now they want it all back. That’s why he’s hiding out across the river with no plans of going back to Manhattan.
Joe is biding his time while he waits for a good tip on a fast horse at the Trotters. He still has all of the money he borrowed and believes he has hidden it well.
Below, in a two room, first floor flat, 14 year old Diego lives with Ana, his handicapped mother. Money is hard to come by. A welfare check barely puts food on the table, so the boy hustles the streets to buy milk, bread, or anything else they need.
He befriends Bill Jackson, an elderly black southerner from the Carolinas who lives one block over on Bergen Street with Beulah, his warm hearted, matronly wife. Though not on welfare, they scrape by on the little they get from Social Security, and lately, they have come up short for the electric bill.
“And old Geezer the cat needs to eat, too. Momma been feedin’ him scraps, but thems cats got to have their meat.”
Diego shows the older man how to fish for spare change in the subway gratings of the Lexington Avenue line. To earn more money, they deliver groceries in a modified baby carriage, but the venture fails from the start.
“So you think this business went on belly up like a shot up gator?” says Bill. “Now, don’t go selling your cow to buy a mule.”
â??Though streetwise and school-smart, nothing prepares Diego for what lie ahead when the Irish mob finally finds Joe Barnes. The once, quiet building is thrown into turmoil as it becomes witness to intimidation and murder.
And the cops are of no help, either. One of their own wants that money, and he’s willing to kill for it.
