Conservative icon, prolific writer and editor David Franke offers a spellbinding review of Lewis Lehrman’s book on Churchill and Roosevelt. No one in the world is more qualified in judging David Franke’s contribution to America’s conservative movement than I am.
Back in the gold rush era, David Franke was the editor of Silver & Gold Report, by far the most valuable reference on all the movers and shakers in the world of gold and silver. The owner and one of the finest copywriters at the time was Dan Rosenthall, a gentleman I knew well and much admired over our years of collaboration.
David eventually moved to Phillips Publishing, basically the founder of the modern newsletter industry. No firm in the world before or since held the power and imagination of this firm, which David Franke pushed me to join in the mid 1980s. He was 100% responsible for the marvelous opportunity that would eventually lead to Richard C. Young’s Intelligence Report over-three-decade relationship in the investment newsletter business. Phillips Publishing, under Bob King, grew to become the best in the world in the newsletter industry.
When I wrote my first book, Financial Armadillo Strategy, it was David Franke who did all the heavy lifting for me. If not for David Franke, there would have been no Financial Armadillo Strategy by Richard C. Young.
Every American should read David’s important and brilliant review on Lewis Lehrman’s Churchill, Roosevelt & Company.
