A former FBI Special Agent and leading cyber-security expert offers a devastating and essential look at the misinformation campaigns, fake news, and electronic espionage operations that have become the cutting edge of modern warfare—and how we can protect ourselves and our country against them. Clint Watts electrified the nation when he testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election. In Messing with the Enemy, the cyber and homeland security expert introduces us to a frightening world in which terrorists and cyber criminals don’t hack your computer, they hack your mind. Watts reveals how these malefactors use your information and that of your friends and family to work for them through social media, which they use to map your social networks, scour your world affiliations, and master your fears and preferences. Thanks to the schemes engineered by social media manipulators using you and your information, business executives have coughed up millions in fraudulent wire transfers, seemingly good kids have joined the Islamic State, and staunch anti-communist Reagan Republicans have cheered the Russian government’s hacking of a Democratic presidential candidate’s e-mails. Watts knows how they do it because he’s mirrored their methods to understand their intentions, combat their actions, and coopt their efforts. Watts examines a particular social media platform—from Twitter to internet Forums to Facebook to LinkedIn—and a specific bad actor—from al Qaeda to the Islamic State to the Russian and Syrian governments—to illuminate exactly how social media tracking is used for nefarious purposes. He explains how he’s learned, through his successes and his failures, to engage with hackers, terrorists, and even the Russians—and how these interactions have generated methods of fighting back. Shocking, funny, and eye-opening, Messing with the Enemy is a deeply urgent guide for living safe and smart in a super-connected world.

Pray from Your Gut Satan is alive, well, and actively searching for opportunities to ruin you. Perhaps your trying circumstances or struggling relationships reflect his schemes. Does that make you angry? If you’ve ever suppressed simmering anger toward the enemy, seeing it as an intrusion into your prayers, it’s time you experience the power of violent prayer. These very emotions of hatred and anger against Satan are fuel for life-changing prayer. Overcome an unhealthy, passive approach to prayer that dilutes your communion with the reigning Victor. When you move from defensive, reactive prayers to offensive, proactive prayers with an aggressive agenda, things begin to change. And you don’t want to miss out. When the Battle Rages, Wage Prayer You witness evil all around and it bothers you. You fall to your knees and tentatively, hopefully, you approach God and ask Him to step in. But nothing happens. Goodness and righteousness seem to be fighting a losing battle. You wonder, Why is God so passive? Perhaps the better question is this: Why are you so passive when it comes to prayer? Embrace the infuriating, passionate emotion that wells up within you against Satan and his schemes. Turn your righteous anger into proactive, aggressive prayers that invite God to intervene and destroy the evil around you. Engage in violent prayer. “Chris Tiegreen writes with wisdom, knowledge, and creativity. Violent Prayer is a wonderful resource for Christians who want to make prayer a more powerful part of their lives.” Carol Pipes Editor, On Mission Story Behind the Book “Especially in praying for my family, I’ve learned that there is a connection between the emotional content of my prayers and the results I see later. Many such experiences have convinced me that ‘violent’ prayers can be quite appropriate and effective. My book gets into the nuts and bolts of praying God’s agenda without reducing it to formulas, hierarchies, military strategies, or any other clichéd approach to spiritual warfare. It primarily addresses the emotional attitude of the believer and describes how to incorporate God’s holy anger into prayer for specific situations. Christians will learn how to pray from their gut-level reactions to the enemy’s agenda.” —Chris Tiegreen

Long Description A hundred thousand years ago the immortal commander of the Malakim’s galactic defense fleet, fighting to protect the planets of this dimension from an invasion force, was turned into stone and plummeted to earth. Unable to use his immortal powers to free himself he must wait through the eons until a human is born with enough unconditional love and compassion to form a mystical bond with him and free him. The prophecy of a young immortal boy is his only hope "The heart of stone by love be free." In the meantime his enemy, the Din, have established themselves on the planet he sought to save. Possibly the oversouls of dinosaurs, they have demonic powers to possess another being by inhabiting their aura. They've built themselves a global economic empire, living in comfort at the expense of those they've enslaved. The story does not belong to any one genre. It mixes mythology, paranormal romance, conspiracy, sci-fi adventure and is a light-hearted introduction into non-dual consciousness. One reader called the adventure "an expansive swirl of fantasy, sci-fi inter galactic battles, new age mysticism and more than a little in the way of lusty encounters involving a vastly experienced, endowed, ageless shape shifting spirit being and an initially sedate...librarian." Tyra, the librarian, is called in to view the remains of her uncle who seems to have been slaughtered by a wild beast. She finds out that she belongs to one of the guardian families and has a prophecy to fulfill. She's worked for years at her desk in the city's library. Haunted by dreams of an alien warrior and a mysterious sage she's never been interested in having an intimate relationship. Now she must learn enough about tantra to free her destined mate and enough of martial arts to survive until she does, cross more than a few taboo boundaries along the way. Some bondage scenes, neo-tantra and menage sex. This is the first book in the series called Left hand adventures. Lefthand Adventures is the business Simon trades under in Heart of Stone, until he sets up his new security firm. Lefthand also designates one of the many spiritual evolutionary paths the Malakim follow. Simon follows left hand path, using ecstatic experiences and shamanic practices. Whereas Thex follows the warrior’s path of justice and the protection of the innocent. Tyra adopts the middle path of love and compassion but that doesn’t exclude her from learning the ways of ecstasy or becoming a warrior in her own right. Other books in the series so far are A Lick of Immortality (Book 2) which focuses on John, Sally and Arion’s stories. Trust and Destiny (Book 3) is Michael, Sarah and Kiana’s story.
