Tucker Carslon's "Ship of Fools" In Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution, Tucker
Carlson tells the truth about the new American elites, a group whose
power and wealth has grown beyond imagination even as the rest of the
country has withered. The people who run America now barely interact
with it. They fly on their own planes, ski on their own mountains, watch
sporting events far from the stands in sky boxes. They have total
contempt for you but the only man in America ready to stand up for citizens, Donald Trump, now has many political allies ready to take on these eltes. The elites "view America the way a private equity
firm sizes up an aging conglomerate,” Carlson writes, “as something
outdated they can profit from. When it fails, they’re gone.” In Ship of Fools,
Tucker Carlson offers a blistering critique of our new overlords.
Traditional liberals are gone, he writes. The patchouli-scented
hand-wringers who worried about whales and defended free speech have
been replaced by globalists who hide their hard-edged economic agenda
behind the smokescreen of identity politics. They’ll outsource your job
while lecturing you about transgender bathrooms. Left and right, Carlson
says, are no longer meaningful categories in America. “The rift is
between those who benefit from the status quo, and those who don’t.”
Our leaders are, still, largely "fools, Carlson concludes, “unaware that they are
captains of a sinking ship.” But in the signature and witty style that
viewers of Tucker Carlson Tonight have come to enjoy, his book answers the all-important question: How do we put the country back on course? <http://linksynergy.walmart.com/deeplink?id=w2VGpneWfTE&mid=2149&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.walmart.com%2Fip%2FShip-of-Fools-How-a-Selfish-Ruling-Class-Is-Bringing-America-to-the-Brink-of-Revolution%2F56043486>
New York Times bestselling author Ben Shapiro presents a comprehensive case against Barack Obama’s abuses of power during his time in office.
From the DOJ to the NSA, from the EPA to the Department of Health and Human Services, Barack Obama’s administration has become a labyrinth of corruption and overreach touching every aspect of Americans’ lives. The People vs. Barack Obamastrips away the soft media picture of the Obama administration to reveal a regime motivated by pure, unbridled power and details how each scandal has led to dozens of instances of as-yet-unprosecuted counts of espionage, involuntary manslaughter, violation of internal revenue laws, bribery, and obstruction of justice.
OIL RICH ECONOMIES CAN BECOME BRUTAL AND DANGEROUS The Oil Curse: How Petroleum Wealth Shapes the Development of Nations Countries that are rich in petroleum have less democracy, less economic stability, and more frequent civil wars than countries without oil. What explains this oil curse? And can it be fixed? In this groundbreaking analysis, Michael L. Ross looks at how developing nations are shaped by their mineral wealth--and how they can turn oil from a curse into a blessing. Ross traces the oil curse to the upheaval of the 1970s, when oil prices soared and governments across the developing world seized control of their countries' oil industries. Before nationalization, the oil-rich countries looked much like the rest of the world; today, they are 50 percent more likely to be ruled by autocrats--and twice as likely to descend into civil war--than countries without oil. The Oil Curse shows why oil wealth typically creates less economic growth than it should; why it produces jobs for men but not women; and why it creates more problems in poor states than in rich ones. It also warns that the global thirst for petroleum is causing companies to drill in increasingly poor nations, which could further spread the oil curse. This landmark book explains why good geology often leads to bad governance, and how this can be changed. >http://linksynergy.walmart.com/deeplink?id=w2VGpneWfTE&mid=2149&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.walmart.com%2Fip%2FThe-Oil-Curse-Paperback%2F24388970 <
PROGRESSIVE POLITICS We cannot understand our current political situation and the scholarship used to comprehend our politics without taking full account of the Progressive revolution of a century ago, a revolution that was stalled - but not stopped - by Trump and Regan. This fundamental shift in studying the political world relegated the theory and practice of the Founders to an antiquated historical phase. By contrast, our contributors see beyond the horizon of Progressivism to take account of the Founders' moral and political premises. By doing so they make clear the broader context of current political science disputes, a fitting subject as American professional political science enters its second century. The contributors to the volume specify the changes in the new world that Progressivism brought into being. Part I emphasizes the contrast between various Progressives and their doctrines, and the American Founding on political institutions including the presidency, political parties, and the courts; statesmen include Frederick Douglass, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and John Marshall. Part II emphasizes the radical nature of Progressivism in a variety of areas critical to the American constitutional government and self-understanding of the American mind. Subjects covered include social science, property rights, Darwinism, free speech, and political science as a liberal art. The essays provide intellectual guidance to political scientists and indicate to political practitioners the peculiar perspectives embedded in current political science. Book published in cooperation with The Claremont Institute. https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=w2VGpneWfTE&mid=2653&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.alibris.com%2Fbooksearch%3Fkeyword%3DThe%2BProgressive%2BRevolution%2Bin%2BPolitics%2Band%2BPolitical%2BScience%253A%2BTransforming%2Bthe%2BAmerican%2BRegime%26mtype%3DB%26hs.x%3D23%26hs.y%3D25%26hs%3DSubmit
SOCIALISM FAILS. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism Stalin’s gulag, impoverished North Korea, collapsing Cuba...it’s hard to name a dogma that has failed as spectacularly as socialism. And yet leaders around the world continue to subject millions of people to this dysfunctional, violence-prone ideology.
In The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Socialism, Kevin Williamson reveals the fatal flaw of socialism—that efficient, complex economies simply can’t be centrally planned. But even in America, that hasn’t stopped politicians and bureaucrats from planning, to various extents, the most vital sectors of our economy: public education, energy, and the most arrogant central–planning effort of them all, Obama’s healthcare plan.
In this provocative book, Williamson unfolds the grim history of socialism, showing how the ideology has spawned crushing poverty, devastating famines, and horrific wars. Lumbering from one crisis to the next, leaving a trail of economic devastation and environmental catastrophe, socialism has wreaked more havoc, caused more deaths, and impoverished more people than any other ideology in history—especially when you include the victims of fascism, which Williamson notes is simply a variant of socialism. Williamson further demonstrates: Why, contrary to popular belief, socialism in theory is no better than socialism in practice Why socialism can’t exist without capitalism How the energy powerhouse of Venezuela, under socialism, has become an economic basket case subject to rationing and blackouts How socialism, not British colonialism, plunged the bountiful economy of India into stagnation and dysfunction—and how capitalism is rescuing it Why socialism is inextricably linked to communism If you thought socialism went into the dustbin of history with the collapse of the Soviet Union, think again. Socialism is alive and kicking, and it’s already spread further than you know.>http://linksynergy.walmart.com/deeplink?id=w2VGpneWfTE&mid=2149&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.walmart.com%2Fip%2FThe-Politically-Incorrect-Guide-to-Socialism%2F14923731
WHY SHOULD OLD PEOPLE LIVE? When the term “ageism” was coined in 1969, many problems of exclusion seemed resolved by government programs like Social Security and Medicare. As people live longer lives, today’s great demotions of older people cut deeper into their self-worth and human relations, beyond the reach of law or public policy. In Ending Ageism, or How Not to Shoot Old People, award-winning writer and cultural critic Margaret Morganroth Gullette confronts the offenders: the ways people aging past midlife are portrayed in the media, by adult offspring; the esthetics and politics of representation in photography, film, and theater; and the incitement to commit suicide for those with early signs of “dementia.” In this original and important book, Gullette presents evidence of pervasive age-related assaults in contemporary societies and their chronic affects. The sudden onset of age-related shaming can occur anywhere—the shove in the street, the cold shoulder at the party, the deaf ear at the meeting, the shut-out by the personnel office or the obtuseness of a government. Turning intimate suffering into public grievances, Ending Ageism, Or How Not to Shoot Old People effectively and beautifully argues that overcoming ageism is the next imperative social movement of our time.About the cover image:

Gregg Jarrett spent over a year investigating the investigators
who were searching for something to show President Trump colluded with
Russia to win the presidency in 2016. The evidence shows "progressive"
and democrat partisans within the FBI and the Department
of Justice, driven by personal animus and a misplaced sense of political
righteousness, surreptitiously acted to subvert electoral democracy in
our country. Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett reveals the real
story behind Hillary Clinton’s deep state collaborators in government
and exposes their nefarious actions during and after the 2016 election. The Russia Hoax reveals
how persons within the FBI and Barack Obama’s Justice Department worked
improperly to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in the
2016 presidential election. When this suspected effort failed, those
same people appear to have pursued a contrived investigation of
President Trump in an attempt to undo the election results and remove
him as president. The book examines: How Hillary Clinton managed to
escape prosecution despite compelling evidence she violated the law. How
Peter Strzok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Loretta Lynch, and others
obstructed justice to protect Clinton.Why there was never a legitimate
criminal investigation of Clinton in the Uranium One case. Are the text
messages exchanged between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page evidence of a
concerted effort to undermine the electoral process? Was there ever any
real evidence of "collusion" between Trump and the Russians? Did Trump
obstruct justice in the firing of Comey or was he legally exercising his
constitutional authority? Did the FBI and DOJ improperly use a
discredited "dossier" about Trump to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on
Trump associates? Should Muller have disqualified himself under the
special counsel law based on glaring conflicts of interest? Was fired
National Security Adviser Michael Flynn unfairly charged with making a
false statement? With insightful analysis and a fact-filled narrative, The Russia Hoax delves deeply into Democrat wrongdoing. https://amzn.to/2sq57i2

Trump's America: The Truth about Our Nation's Great Comeback Our
nation's 45th President is leading our country's great comeback. From
the fight of over the Southern Border Wall, to the Republican tax cuts,
to the swamp's unending efforts to undermine and oppose the President, Trump's America
lays out the truth about the Trump presidency - the truth the
mainstream media won't tell you.In this book, Newt Gingrich - who has
been called the President's chief explainer - presents a clear picture
of this historic presidency and the tremendous, positive impact it is
having on our nation and the world. Gingrich unmasks the various
branches of the anti-Trump coalition that are trying to stop America's
great comeback. He reveals the flaws in their ideological assaults on
the President and offers a battle plan for those in Trump's America to
help the President defeat these attacks. Throughout Trump's America,
Gingrich distills decades of experience fighting Washington with a
lifetime of studying history to help every American understand how we
can all keep working to make America great. No one understands the
"Make America Great Again" effort with more insight and more experience
than former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Gingrich helped

LEARN THE TRUTH behind how well-funded hard-left extremists, the mainstream media, and Obama/Clinton holdovers in the government bureaucracy have combined with clandestine forces within the US intelligence apparatus – the “Deep State” -- to block and undermine Trump’s every move. At 2:45 a.m. ET on Nov. 8, 2016, television networks announced to a stunned nation that Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral had gone for Donald Trump, making him the president-elect of the United States, defying all odds in a surreal victory that sent the Deep State into an immediate sense of panic. By dawn on Nov. 9, 2016, the Deep State forces that expected Hillary Clinton to continue the leftist politics of Barack Obama were already planning Donald Trump’s demise. What emerged from the hard left was a political strategy calculated to block Donald Trump from being inaugurated, and if that failed, to make sure Donald Trump would not long serve out his term as 45th President of the United States. Investigative journalist and conspiracy expert Jerome Corsi goes into shocking detail about how this Deep State or Shadow Government secretly wields power in Washington, and why the Deep State is dangerous – capable of assassinating Trump, if efforts to impeach him or to force him to resign fail. Corsi also defines a three-point strategy Trump -- as a political independent, opposed both by Democratic Party enemies and GOP establishment -- must employ to stay in office and have a chance of a successful first term in office. https://amzn.to/2ITOLbL

STOP MASS HYSTERIAThe defeat of "shoo-in" Hillary Clinton and the entire Democrat state has caused fractures in the Centrist, Left, Progressive, and Socialist factions of the party that have spread to the larger population. They are so hostile, so full of violent rage, that they cannot reason or converse. It is a phenomenon we have seen before in America. It is called mass hysteria. Thanks to social media and the corrupt mainstream media, the reach is so large it is an unprecedented "mass hysteria bubble." Michael Savage will discuss the cycles of mass hysteria that have roused the public for and against blocs of people or enterprises, beginning with the revolution of 1776, the Civil War and Reconstruction, the Red Scare from the 30s - 50s, the Silent Majority vs. the Hippies, the anti-nuclear movement of the 1970s-1980s which probably set energy independence back fifty years, and more. All of those different movements have one thing in common: hate was hatched. It was nurtured from dislike to vocal mass hysteria. Savage says that to slow or even break this insidious cycle, we must delve into the unspoken reality that there are always puppet masters behind these outcries, men and women who convince the gullible masses that indoctrination is truth. While exposing these forces in the past Savage will, more importantly, unmask the individuals in the present who are generating this mass hysteria...and why. https://amzn.to/2tcsfAO
ARE CHINA AND THE UNITED STATES HEADING TOWARD A WAR NEITHER WANTS? The
reason is Thucydides’s Trap, a deadly pattern of structural stress that
results when a rising power challenges a ruling one. This phenomenon is
as old as history itself. About the Peloponnesian War that devastated
ancient Greece, the historian Thucydides explained: “It was the rise of
Athens and the fear that this instilled in Sparta that made war
inevitable.” Over the past 500 years, these conditions have occurred
sixteen times. War broke out in twelve of them. Today, as an unstoppable
China approaches an immovable America and both Xi Jinping and Donald
Trump promise to make their countries “great again,” the seventeenth
case looks grim. Unless China is willing to scale back its ambitions or
Washington can accept becoming number two in the Pacific, a trade
conflict, cyberattack, or accident at sea could soon escalate into
all-out war. In Destined for War, the eminent Harvard scholar
Graham Allison explains why Thucydides’s Trap is the best lens for
understanding U.S.-China relations in the twenty-first century. Through
uncanny historical parallels and war scenarios, he shows how close we
are to the unthinkable. Yet, stressing that war is not inevitable,
Allison also reveals how clashing powers have kept the peace in the past
— and what painful steps the United States and China must take to avoid
disaster today. https://amzn.to/2sqq0ts
COMPENDIUM OF OBAMA LIES Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal, high levels of transparency. Obama’s promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.
Some of the things on this list are major events that should scare the daylights out of any true liberal who cares about civil liberties.
Other things on this list are medium things that some Obama supporters may dislike, but would be willing to overlook in light of the things that Obama has done which they like.
And some of the things on this list may seem trivial, but I still think they are an interesting reflection of the kinds of policies that Obama supports.

SHOCKING PROOF - POLITICIANS ARE LEGAL THIEVES. Politicians use mafia-like tactics to enrich themselves. The do insider trading on the markets. They set up "charitable" organizations to enrich themselves and, now, the legal theft i which they deal is worse than ever. "Peter Schweizer has been fighting corruption—and winning—for years. In Throw Them All Out, he exposed insider trading by members of Congress, leading to the passage of the STOCK Act. In Extortion, he uncovered how politicians use mafia-like tactics to enrich themselves. And in Clinton Cash, he revealed the Clintons’ massive money machine and sparked an FBI investigation.
Now he explains how a new corruption has taken hold, involving larger sums of money than ever before. Stuffing tens of thousands of dollars into a freezer has morphed into multibillion-dollar equity deals done in the dark corners of the world.
An American bank opening in China would be prohibited by US law from hiring a slew of family members of top Chinese politicians. However, a Chinese bank opening in America can hire anyone it wants. It can even invite the friends and families of American politicians to invest in can’t-lose deals.
President Donald Trump’s children have made front pages across the world for their legal transactions. However, the media has barely looked into questionable deals made by those close to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Mitch McConnell, and lesser-known politicians who have been in the game longer.
In many parts of the world, the children of powerful political figures go into business and profit handsomely, not necessarily because they are good at it, but because people want to curry favor with their influential parents. This is a relatively new phenomenon in the United States. But for relatives of some prominent political families, we may already be talking about hundreds of millions of dollars.

The Conscience of a Liberal
by Paul Krugman "The most consistent and courageous―and unapologetic―liberal partisan in American journalism." ―Michael Tomasky, New York Review of BooksIn this "clear, provocative" (Boston Globe) New York Times bestseller, Paul Krugman, today's most widely read economist, examines the past eighty years of American history, from the reforms that tamed the harsh inequality of the Gilded Age and the 1920s to the unraveling of that achievement and the reemergence of immense economic and political inequality since the 1970s. Seeking to understand both what happened to middle-class America and what it will take to achieve a "new New Deal," Krugman has created his finest book to date, a "stimulating manifesto" offering "a compelling historical defense of liberalism and a clarion call for Americans to retake control of their economic destiny" (Publishers Weekly)."As Democrats seek a rationale not merely for returning to power, but for fundamentally changing―or changing back―the relationship between America's government and its citizens, Mr. Krugman's arguments will prove vital in the months and years ahead." ―Peter Beinart, New York Timeshttps://amzn.to/2JJkigZ
