About the Book

By coincidence, the Associated Press recently carried an article entitled, Each Presidency has Unique Style of Lying to its Citizenry, in which it states "you can derive some truths about a President by the way he chooses to lie to you," on the same day that an article appeared in The Economist addressing Japan's latest financial woes. Coincidence because this non-fiction account, Iron Shoes, incorporates both of these elements in revealing governmental lies designed to hide collusion with Japan to cheat the American people of money that rightfully belongs to them.

Iron Shoes is a short expose covering a fifty-year history in which its author accidentally discovered little known facts emanating from World War II wherein no less than ten US Presidents and the Secret Service were the participants in a massive conspiracy. Six hundred billion dollars had been loaned to Japan for reparation and were backed by notes that were to guarantee its repayment; that is until the notes disappeared. Today they would be worth over a trillion dollars. What happened to these securities? Who was responsible? How could this have taken place? The author of Iron Shoes provides the answers even at the risk of losing his life.
