Colonel Oliver North’s latest literary foray takes a look at the year 2032 and finds terrorism, a United Nation’s takeover, and a lying president.
North, the host of War Stories on the Fox News Channel, is now out with a new work of fiction called “Heroes Proved
,” the fourth in a series of fictitious works about Peter Newman a highly decorated U.S. Marine war hero. The book’s underlying message is the nation can’t live without a strong defense.
Watch the exclusive interview here.
“This book is very realistic — it’s set in the future, it’s about a president who lies to the American people about deceiving us about whether terrorists really are still a threat. Sounds a little familiar to something that we’ve seen in the Obama Administration. It’s also a message about courage, faith, and importance of family; partly a love story as well,” North said.
“It’s realistic in terms of what they go through in the midst of an attack on the United States. It involves the changes that the progressives want to see in our culture and what would happen if you have the kind of government that they advocated. It includes things like killing American citizens with unmanned-aerial vehicles; it includes things like banning the National Rifle Association at the behest of the United Nations.
"A new global currency – all things that we’ve heard talked about now for the better part of five to six years. All things that were advocated by of all things the Obama Administration. And now it looks forward to the date 2032, when all of this has come to fruition.”
North said while the book is a work of fiction it is also a cautionary tale.
“Gosh, you think about what has been advocated by the Obama administration,” he said. “You think about the kinds of things that members of Congress have advocated. You think about the pandering to un-elected, unaccountable bureaucrats, globacrats, if you will, at the United Nations and you can see those things that they have tried to jam through on us over the course of the last four years. Well, think about having a President who actually gets those things through and what could happen to this country. So, it is a cautionary tale.”
North acknowledges that the hero of the book, Peter Newman, is a bit of an alter ego but he is not another Oliver North.
“I think what our readers learn about Peter Newman is that he is a patriot and he is a person who cares about his family and his family is placed in enormous risk in all of that. I’ve got some familiarity in that. I am married to the only American woman I know who ever had to flee her home to avoid bad people who were coming to do harm to her and her children because of what her husband had done,” he said. “This book and all my books are dedicated to the same woman – the woman I married forty four years ago and that’s why I dedicate these books to her.
“Peter Newman is not Oliver North – he is a composite of a lot of people I know who’ve served out there for their country quietly in the shadows. They do things that need to be done to protect us and they don’t stand up and brag about it. Peter Newman is to a certain extent my alter ego, but he is a better man than I am and he is also a little older.”
