Dora Benley’s father, Winthrop Benley, was a Pittsburgh Industrialist one hundred years ago and also a good friend of Teddy Roosevelt, the Rough Rider. In those days he never thought that America should involve itself much in European affairs. They should stay to themselves. He did not even approve of World War 1, let alone the Second World War. He was an American First advocate. He would never have believed that China should make goods that America imports while it closes down its own industrial plants. He would have thought that America would have the commonsense not to favor such a policy. He would say look what happened to England during the First World War. They were importing all their food and when they couldn’t do that because of war conditions almost starved to death. Winthrop Benley would think the same about industrial production, steel, raw materials, etc. You don’t want to depend on anybody who could end up pointing a gun at you. He and Teddy Roosevelt would have agreed with Trump.

Donald Trump should take a tip from his ancient forebearer, Marcus Licinius Crassus, the billionaire real estate tycoon of Late Republican Rome. Instead of having his picture taken or even painted as more modern Presidents did, he should have his bust at least sculpted in marble. Like Marcus Crassus and his political associate, Julius Caesar, Donald Trump’s very serious, not joking posture, bearing, and way of speaking show evidence of what Romans would call auctoritas, or authority. Nothing shows this better than solid marble. The buildings of Washington DC are built of marble, so should his portrait be.

Look forward to more about Trump gratis Cheops Books, LLC.

Donald Trump is supposed to be German on his father’s side and Scottish on his mother’s side. the Germans repelled the Romans in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9AD. The Romans never reached Scotland. But still Marcus Crassus, the financier of Julius Caesar, and Donald Trump, the President elect, look like twins.
Not only were both real estate investors and billionaire investors in their respective countries, but to judge by the statue of Marcus Licinius Crassus below and the photo of Donald Trump right beside it, both seem to take themselves seriously and project very sober looks. They purse their lips just so. They both possess long, aquiline, aristocratic noses of distinction. Both faces draw attention to their imposing eyebrows. Their jowls look formidable. You wouldn’t want to mess with them! The only feature that looks different is Donald Trump’s signature hairdo while Marcus Crassus preferred a more traditional cut. That just shows that Donald Trump is from nowadays and Crassus is from 2000 years ago. But still history seems to be repeating itself in having a businessman come to the fore of politics.

It almost seems like the two of them are destined to end up in an Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel!

Denmark is not a land of castles. Perhaps it is too flat. We usually think of castles sitting up on hills or at least hillocks. England has far more spooky medieval edifices. But Denmark has at least one very infamous castle by the name of Kronborg in the town of Helsingor by the sea. It is about one hour from Copenhagen and promises all sorts of spooky adventures to anyone brave enough to enter the doors and visit where Hamlet once roamed and Hamlet’s ghost once haunted the stone walls. Cheops Books LLC will visit Kronborg in the upcoming thriller Murder at Hamlet’s Castle. Hopefully it will sell as many copies as Dan Brown.
