Had I not done that, he too would have endured a fall like Hillary. Maybe there is much more to Benghazi than we know, and she is in a far more precarious position than we imagine. She blacked out, fell, and next thing she knew, she was waking up in the hospital. The timing was certainly curious. We tend to dismiss it as yet another leftist exaggeration — a part of their normal leftist histrionics, but that is not hyperbole. They are not just saying that. Trigger their amygdala enough and they will hyperventilate, throw up, black out, and even attempt suicide. That is how dramatic the effect is.
It does all make me optimistic that, like most ardent feminists, Hillary has an unusually triggerable amygdala, and thus would be an unusually easy candidate to beat in the General Election. The devil deserves nothing less. This makes the whole Larry Summers fiasco at Harvard years ago very clear. She was going to either throw up or black out. At the time I thought that was pure drama intended to manipulate the audience, in other words a lie.
But if it was an amygdala-driven event, then she was telling the truth. Of course, in so doing she proved her absolute unfitness for any real science; her emotional storm proved Summers point. If you remember that incident, your brain is tailor made for this idea. I think the fear of that physiological reaction is why you get demands for leftist policies. For example, they want to outlaw free competition.
If they have to contemplate a world where they could end up penniless due to failure, they will feel as if they are going to throw up or black out, so why would you be so mean as to do that to them? If they have to picture a world where some group could be castigated as defective, that could be them, and that thought would make them feel as if they were about to black out or throw up, so why would you be so mean as to do that to them?
The thing is I have seen it first hand, in its most extreme form. A person, so screwed up by words and ideas presented to him, that he basically had a mini-stroke, and had to go to the hospital. His whole brain process spiraled out of control, becoming so emotional it crashed, like a computer. But it is still very unpleasant, and if you grasp the mechanism, you can push the right buttons, and make it happen on demand.
The more leftist they are, the more exacerbated their malady, and the easier it is to do to them. Then if you can, experiment, add to the body of knowledge, or tell others, to spread the idea. In evolutionary ecology, r and K describe two fundamental psychologies seen in nature, designed to adapt an organism to either a glut or a shortage. Rabbits are r-strategists, designed to exploit free resources, like fields of grass. All help this glut-exploiting psychology to out-reproduce everyone else by avoiding danger, mating widely starting young, booting offspring early to mate again, and never risking for others.
Wolves are K-strategists, designed for when resources are too limited for everyone to survive. All these traits either help you win when you have to fight, or produce and protect fitter offspring, so they will win in a dangerous world that culls the weak. Our political battle is one between a glut-exploiting r-reproductive strategy of rabbits designed to produce raw numbers and a shortage-surviving K-reproductive strategy of wolves designed to produce quality.
The swings between conservatism and liberalism at the societal level are not the result of logical argument or reasoned debate. They are the result of psychological shifts produced by perceptions of K-stimuli in the environment such as conflict, danger, and shortage, or r-stimuli, such as safety, pleasure, and abundance. These perceptions trigger ancient mechanisms in the brain that adapt psychology to environment. All of politics and much of history are r vs K.
Please consider helping to spread this theory by telling others about this site. As you can see by the shocked 5 star reviews on the book's Amazon page linked above, this idea, and the science behind it, blows people away when they see it. And best of all, it will utterly demoralize and crush any leftist you describe it to, in unbelievable fashion. This idea's beneficial effects on our governance and our freedom cannot be overestimated, if it can only spread.

Maybe we don't know everything after all. Anyways, the thought of a story of the Devil was a little scary too think about reading. But in the end I thought, why not see what its all about and go from there? I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and will be on the lookout for more of this author's work in the future. Hope this review helped. Apr 23, A Girl Among Books rated it it was amazing. I'm not normally one to read these types of books, nor am I, a very religious person It really makes you think; "What if? SATAN, himself.. What are the consequences for innocent bystanders?
And what if while amongst us, he falls in Love? This book made me actually feel sad for Lucifer, Satan, the Devil.. BUT if he truly exists. I look at Satan, demons and even God, Himself in a different way. I'm basing my 5 star review on the actual story, not the editing.
May 16, Lori rated it it was amazing Shelves: supernatural-horror. Free download on bookbub. This was a very interesting read. One particular sinner makes him take notice and it affects him more than any other. He then decides he must go up and stop this person from doing more harm in the world and deal out his own punishment. He meets a woman along the Free download on bookbub. He meets a woman along the way that causes him to care for her - something he's not used to.
While searching for the person he wants, he comes across other demons and saints who are sent by God to stop him. May 06, Crystal rated it it was amazing Shelves: horror. When i first saw this book i was Leary of reading it,not sure how i felt about the spin this book puts on the Devil. This book was actually a great read.
I must warn you though you have to get past the murder that wakes the Devil up and brings him to earth it took me a few to get past it.. Keep an open mind with this book. It is not a religious book though the Devil and God and a slew of demons and angels are mentioned. Jan 11, Jag Garcia rated it liked it. The premise of this book was fairly interesting and overall it was a fairly good and light read. I enjoyed the characterization of the Devil and the insinuations made on the structure and rationale of hell and its function vis-a-vis heaven and God without the burden of what one religion or another may say about it.
Worth the time to read given its overall length and weight. Jan 06, Iliana Veltcheva rated it really liked it. The opening chapter will most likely stay with me for at least a year. It was surprisingly powerful I'm a depressingly seasoned horror reader who finds nothing unsettling anymore , to the point where I just couldn't bring myself to give the book 3 stars despite the occasional sloppiness and shark-jumping I could have well done without. May 12, Kas rated it really liked it Shelves: I really did enjoy this story.
It was an interesting take. The jumping points of view was disconcerting at first but done well enough that I could follow easily. I desperately want to know what's going on with Kelly. That's going to drive me a bit batty. Did I just miss it? It's possible, I had kids clamoring around me all throughout. Apr 07, Loretta rated it really liked it. This is the first book in a long time that I didn't want to put down. Having never read anything of this genre before, I wasn't sure how well I would like it.
It was definitely a page turner, with some characters so despicable, I couldn't wait to see if they got everything that was coming to them. This book didn't disappoint. I own two more books from this author that I will definitely read. An unusual tale of Satan. There are some graphic moments but it fits the story and the book is worth going through the discomfort. I've enjoyed the books by this author and will continue to explore her work. Jul 30, Andrea Mantecon rated it it was amazing. Beautiful This story is thought provoking.
You will experience many emotions throughout. And delight you with its originality. You will cheer for the righteousness in the Angel Lucifer. Sep 19, Scott rated it really liked it. Didn't think this was going to amount to much but I was surprised. A cool little story about the devil coming to Earth, doling out justice, perhaps falling in love, and finding hope. A good single perhaps two night read. May 14, Mike rated it liked it. This was an interesting read. It's not that often I've come across a book that paints the devil in a sympathetic light but compared to the two he's after in this book, he's a saint and the book did the job well of trying to get you to root on the devil to get his quarry.
abashed the devil stood, and felt how awful goodness is
Nov 25, Caroline rated it really liked it Shelves: spiritual , supernatural , religious , nov Apr 23, Paul rated it liked it. After all, Lucifer was an angel first. Sep 21, Mary rated it it was amazing. I totally enjoyed this book. I never thought I'd read a book that presented The Devil as a being that has a threshold for evil that two humans could actually exceed by doing something so wicked and evil that even The Devil decided that these humans were TOO evil.
So, The Devil must come to earth to find them and punish them because they don't deserve a good life in the time that they have until Hell receives them. In doing so, memories of his time as an angel in Heaven stir and feelings of love I totally enjoyed this book. In doing so, memories of his time as an angel in Heaven stir and feelings of love and compassion emerge A great read. Awesome characters. I loved The Devil, Kelly and Sitri. Thomas and Carrie was deplorable and easy to hate. The murder of the small child is written very well, in that it does describe the horror of that scenario in such detail that I could picture it and feel so badly for the little boy.
Some may find it gruesome or over the top. I would disagree. I didn't think that the scene was gratuitous. I felt that it needed to be there to show why this event caused The Devil to take notice and say, "No way! Children DO go through what this boy goes through in the book. That is the only really disturbing scene in the book. The book ends, not with more darkness A wonderful book.
Sep 04, Mark R. Christine Dougherty's "The Devil Stood Up" opens with the premise that the Devil is not an underworld sadist, but simply a fallen angel who wishes he was still in heaven, who carries out his task of eternal punishment with no particular pleasure.
1 Chronicles 21:1
Chugging through his head is a constantly evolving Litany of sins, the crimes the denizens of hell have committed in order to get them where they currently reside. One particular item jumps out from the Litany and catches his attention: the murder of a young child by its mother, and the woman's subsequent freedom from jail thanks to the workings of her greedy lawyer. Inspired I'm assuming by the recent Anthony case, wherein a selfish degenerate murdered her baby because it was getting in the way of her good time, the book's opening gets off to a good start.
The passages dealing with the woman's crime are detailed and upsetting, as they should be, and I was with the story up until the point that the Devil possessed the body of a suicidal man, in order to find the murderous woman and her lawyer. It isn't a bad setup, but unfortunately, the characters are hard to care about. The child-murdering woman is despicable and appropriately unlikeable, but also very undeveloped, never more than a generalization of a character. Same goes for her attorney. They're both so wicked and selfish, with no other characteristics ever showing through, that it's hard to buy them as real people.
Here are a few gripes I have, that are not story related If this was meant as an artistic decision, it doesn't come across, and is sometimes pretty jarring. I won't lie, I had a hard time enjoying this book, and I really, really wanted to. The grammar issues are distracting, and it's an interesting premise, but the way the story plays out, it doesn't work. View 2 comments. Apr 14, Ana rated it really liked it Shelves: free-ebooks.

It's a tale about Lucifer who has been thrust into the role of punishing sinners for eternity and is currently feeling overwhelmed and tired of The Litany the flow of knowledge of every sin mankind commits. And so, when a young woman kills her baby son and an ambitious upcoming lawyer manages to get her acquitted of her crime, he decides he doesn't want to wait for them to die to punish them and goes up to Earth inside Dark, forbidding and violent but also full of kindness, goodness and hope.
Getting Stood Up By The Devil
And so, when a young woman kills her baby son and an ambitious upcoming lawyer manages to get her acquitted of her crime, he decides he doesn't want to wait for them to die to punish them and goes up to Earth inside a suicider's body Mark to find and bring their souls to Hell sooner. On Earth he meets Kelly, Mark's adopted sister and falls in love. This is not a HEA. They do not end up together happy ever after. Kelly is thrust in a very violent world full of demons and barely manages to survive and Lucifer leaves right after doing what he came to do in the first place. He resigns himself to live his existence as God wanted him to since God gave him Kelly's life.
There's is no kiss, no coming together or tearful goodbye. Simply a story told and I liked it. It was very well achieved, very well written. Amazing characters and amazing depth. There is a heavy hand regarding religion, so be forewarned. The devil also plays a good part or as good as the Devil ever could so if you're set in your religious ways..
Dec 17, Laurel rated it it was ok. This the second book I have read by the author. The first I rather liked Zombie, Inc and I had been looking forward to reading others. But this one I didn't like at all, sadly. The characters seemed extreme and melodramatic and I felt I was being preached at the whole time. It was grim, grim, grim and by two-thirds of the way through I just wanted it to be over.
Glad I didn't read this book first. Jan 27, Bayli marked it as to-read Shelves: tbr-that-i-own. Not something I'd usually enjoy reading but this description has me thoroughly intrigued! Nov 19, Karen T.
