"How I Saved the World" by Jesse Watters Is a Fun Book to Read--It's Politics without the Stress

How Does Jesse Watters Save the World?

Jesse Watters started at the lowest rung of the Fox News Channel ladder--literally in the basement.  His Watters World segment on Bill O'Reilly's show, The O'Reilly Factor, launched him in the right direction.  Not only did he become a panelist on The Five, his weekly show, Watters World, evolved into the weeknight program, Jesse Watters Primetime.

How I Saved the World is Watters' first book, and if you've followed him for any length of time, you won't be surprised that it's mostly autobiographical.  Watters is simultaneously cocky, confident, and self-deprecating--a combination that's endearing to fans.

In his playfully narcissistic manner, Watters shares how he has used his journalistic skills and his platform to save various aspects of our culture.  Each chapter provides a detailed account of his heroic exploits for the American people.  According to Watters, he's responsible for single-handedly saving these important facets of society:

  • The great outdoors
  • Hard work
  • Children
  • Journalism
  • Prime Time
  • The Internet
  • DC nightlife
  • Nude beaches
  • Christmas
  • Hollywood
  • America's cities
  • Environment
  • His mom's texts
  • The primaries
  • 2016

Who needs Batman when we have Jesse Watters?  

If you ever assumed Watters is a pretty boy who's afraid to get his hands dirty or leans on the cowardly side (based on some of his sissy screaming episodes of early Watters World segments featured on The Factor), you will appreciate learning just how bold, tough, aggressive, and cunning he is. Plus, he's really funny.  Prepare to be impressed.

Not Your Typical Political Commentary

Most political books are stressful to read.  We already know the Left is bat-shit crazy evil, so why subject ourselves to additional anguish by reading behind-the-scenes sordid details to emphasize it?

How I Saved the World is unique because it blends entertaining autobiographical stories with wise political commentary that is steeped in common sense and seasoned with humor.

Watters relays story after story proving conservatives are willing to debate and persuade based on national values and facts while the progressives seek to censor, intimidate, and silence opposition.  He clearly explains the destructive practices of the Left, yet he does it from an attitude of mockery, which exposes them as the hateful mob they are and bestows the higher ground to conservatives.

Saving the world depends on bringing the Left's corruption to light, and Watters balances these truths with wise solutions on how we can fix what they've broken.  His vision for America is an optimistic one.

Watters is skilled in asking hard questions about a variety of issues to people from all walks of life.  No matter what their responses, he manages to leave their dignity intact while the rest of us are amused, shocked, or enlightened by this cross-sectional analysis of Americans.

My Favorite Aspects of the Book

It's hard to imagine how Watters became a Republican despite being raised in a very liberal home by parents who are anything but moderate.

Watters loves his mom, and even though she possesses viewpoints that are the polar opposite of his own, she still watches his shows.  He's her boy.  She can't control herself and regularly texts him her thoughts on his words, attitudes, and actions.  He devotes a whole chapter to his mom's texts in this book and describes them as "....reading hate mail, but from your own mother."

Watters shares multiple encounters he has had with President Trump.  My favorite is when he asks Trump what he thinks Hillary Clinton is up to.  Trump responds, "Crooked? What's she doing now?  Not being president."

How I Saved the World is brimming with satirical introspection, and the book never trails off but remains consistently entertaining from beginning to end.  If you watch Watters' programs, you can hear his voice inside your head as you read his book.  It's like a one-on-one conversation with him--even if it's one-sided. We're used to it.  

Readers also get a glimpse into the lives of other Fox News personalities when they aren't in front of the camera, and he shares something about Dana Perino you'll find hard to believe!

Watters World

Watters has his finger on the pulse of America, which is why viewers love him and find him so relatable.  He voices and fights for all the issues that are important to us.

You'll discover where Watters received his inspiration for the sweeping hand motion when he says, "I'm Watters, and this is my world."  It really is his world, but he lets us live here, too.

My rating:  4/4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Don't Let Your Kids Read Harry Potter

Have your kids been imploring you for permission to read the Harry Potter series?  It seems like everyone is hooked on these books, making your kids feel awkwardly quarantined from their peers over the divide on principles.  After all, Scholastic book orders provided by the indoctrination centers of public schools are brimming with Harry Potter selections, serving up an alarming dose of witchcraft for the youngest readers to the oldest.  Isn't everything sanctioned by the schools supposed to be in your child's best interests?  Hardly.  Not only is the book addiction rampant, but the frenzy is intensified by movies, museum exhibits, and video games.  A full line of merchandise supports the franchise, offering consumers Harry Potter board games, magic wands, apparel, cups, calendars, umbrellas, necklaces, and other fan fare products.  If Harry Potter is so evil and insidious, surely the bandwagon would be fairly empty, right?  We find the answer in I Corinthians 2:14,

'Tis the Season for a Christmas Book Giveaway: Two Copies of "The Christmas Town" by Donna VanLiere

  The Christmas Town Became a Hallmark Movie Fans of Candace Cameron Bure will remember her portrayal of Lauren Gabriel in Hallmark's 2019 movie,  Christmas Town , which is based on this book by Donna VanLiere.  However, the Hallmark version has almost nothing in common with the novel.  The book and the movie share only three things:  character names, setting, and the fact Lauren was once a foster child.     Since the storylines veer in different directions, the book will take you on a far deeper and better journey.   Lauren is a 21-year-old cashier who grew up in foster homes, always hoping the relationship with her drug addict mother might one day be restored.  She longs for family.  One day, she witnesses a car accident that thrusts her into the small town of Grandon.  She loves the town and all the people in it and finds the faith, hope, love, and family her heart has always longed for. The Christmas Town is a very uplifting story brimming with faith, generosity, servanthood,

A Review of Tucker Carlson's Eye-Opening Book, Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution

The radical Left has tried to drown out Tucker Carlson's voice of reason, but he won't be intimidated or silenced.  Carlson calls his evening show on Fox News "the sworn enemy of  lying, pomposity, smugness, and group-think."  In his latest book, Ship of Fools , he offers an eye-opening account of what we have suspected all along about the radical Left agenda, but unlike liberals, he presents actual facts and logic to prove his points.  What he reveals about the far left-wingers who have hijacked the entire Democratic Party is more than unsettling. Two years after Trump's election, the socialist liberals and their fascist propaganda machine, the fake news networks, still cannot accept his presidency.  Carlson points out just why Trump was elected--he was the only one who seemed interested in what voters had to say, and electing him was our "throbbing middle finger in the face of America's ruling class."  Wouldn't you agree? Carlson conclud

The Phantom of the Opera: Comparing & Contrasting Gaston Leroux's Book to the Movie Based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's Musical

  The Phantom of the Opera Plot Summary Originally written as a serial story for the Le Gaulois newspaper, The Phantom of the Opera was released as a novel in March 1910.  It remains as captivating today as it was then thanks, in part, to the enticing score composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber that debuted in 1986.  In 2004, Joel Schumaker's film adaptation of the musical provided a chance for everyone to experience this thrilling and chilling romance.  The Phantom of the Opera is a gothic tale about a deformed musical genius who "haunts" the Paris Opera House.  He lives in a secret lair of his own creation by a lake in the deepest recesses of the opera.  The Phantom, whose real name is Erik, becomes obsessed with Christine Daaé, and under his tutelage, he prepares her to be the next prima donna of the opera in place of the current soprano, Carlotta.   Thinking the Phantom is the Angel of Music her father promised to send her when he went to heaven, Christine blindly submi

Review: "The Book of Signs" by Dr. David Jeremiah

2023 Reading Challenge That's Fun & Easy!

Not Your Typical 2023 Reading Challenge When you're a voracious bookworm, a new year means a fresh start on tackling your TBR list.  We somehow think this is the year we will mark every book as read and finally reach the end of our list, knowing the lofty goal will always remain a dangling carrot of vain pursuit.   With renewed vigor and time on our hands in the colder months, we also accept reading challenges to expand our literary horizons.  Like many New Year's resolutions, our enthusiasm quickly wanes when we fall further and further behind, and the challenge becomes more like a tedious chore than something to savor. Let's change that in 2023! Reading should always be a rewarding, worthwhile experience.  Life is busy, so when you can squeeze in time for reading, it should be like sitting down with your best friend--a fun and unhurried time of delightful engagement.   Challenges that include specific books, themes, or genres that don't interest you or ones that tax y

The plot of The Holiday Plan is magical: Valentine's Day is full of painful reminders for Verona Scott, a romance novelist who has trouble believing happily-ever-after exists.  To escape all the heart-shaped, pink and red symbols of the season, Verona holes up in Courtington Castle, a luxury hotel near the quaint town of Camelot Creek, located in the valley of the Adirondacks.  She's hoping the picturesque backdrop will lead to much-needed literary inspiration, since best-selling romance novels are hard to write when drawn from a well of personal heartbreak.  Verona is horrified upon check-in to learn a match-making retreat headed by the king of happily-ever-after himself, Troy Turner, coincides
