Looks Like David Barton’s ‘Even Bigger’ Publisher for his Jefferson Lies is his Own WallBuilder Press

Remember when David Barton’s book The Jefferson Lies was pulled by its publisher Thomas Nelson and Barton claimed he had an even bigger publisher that was going to pick the book up? And then Glenn Beck said that his publishing arm was going to be the new publisher? Well, apparently, this was all a bunch of crap. Barton’s book is once again available from Amazon, and the publisher listed in the info on the book’s Amazon page is none other than Barton’s very own WallBuilder Press. In other words, Barton’s even bigger publisher is himself.

Another promise Barton made was that twenty pages of material that Thomas Nelson allegedly omitted from his book were going to be put back in in the next edition. These allegedly missing twenty pages were described by Barton as additional documentation that was going to prove that his book was accurate, and would clear up everything.

I just ordered a copy of this apparently new edition of The Jefferson Lies from Amazon to see if it is, in fact, a new edition and if those allegedly missing twenty pages of additional documentation have been put back in as Barton promised. I’ll have this new edition in two days, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, I continue to work on my thorough debunking of Barton’s book. As I’ve previously posted, I’m writing seven short books, one debunking each of Barton’s seven Jefferson lies. The first installment — the one about Jefferson and education — is out already and available in paperback and for Kindle and Nook, and I’m now finishing up the second installment — the one debunking all the lies Barton uses to support his claim that Jefferson was not a secularist.

    waiting with worms on my tongue to hear about those magical twenty extra pages.

    I looked at the book on Amazon and at Wallbuilders and neither gives any mention of material that was not in the original publication. One would think, that if the extra pages were there, it would be used as a selling point for the book. “New revised and expanded edition.” Something like that.

    My prediction: It’s the same book.

    I have to wonder if he misspoke when he said “publisher”. Perhaps he meant “idiot” or “asshole”.

    waiting with worms on my tongue

    Now I finally understand what people mean by “waiting with baited breath” instead of “waiting with bated breath”!

    “waiting with baited breath” that’s what the cat did after it ate the cheese. :-)

    Barton being creative with the facts, now that’s a shocker.

    That is all.

    As a “historian” David Barton is like a “doctor” who never went to medical school.

    I’d take a witch doctor over Barton any day.

    (Admittedly, a quack vs. Barton is a harder call… Both are loathsome, lying, and unfortunately dangerous.)

    Lack of impressive qualifications doesn’t really disqualify the claims that DB makes, it’s the lack of historical accuracy, also known as flat out lies, that should doom his influence to the dust bin of history where the likes of erich von daniken inhabit.
