About the Book

In The American Ali Baba, the author draws an amazing parallel between an ancient Arabic folktale and the tragedy of the current American Presidency.  Full of intrigue and drama, both plots revolve around thievery, lies, deception, trickery and murder, all veiled in intense secrecy.  Both stories portray central characters on greedy missions to amass a fortune, at the expense of others.  The book presents an abbreviated version of the ancient tale and an overview of the American forefathers’ intent and Bill of Rights.  Finally, the modern tragedy unfolds through a clear, concise examination of the shadowy shenanigans of the American Ali Baba and his 40 conniving neocon thieves.
