  • No Safe SpacesNo Safe Spaces Prager, Dennis Regnery Pub 出版 2019/3/19出版

With a foreword by Adam Carolla and fascinating interviews with 12 Rules for Life author Jordan Peterson and Not a Daycare author Dr. Everett Piper, NO SAFE SPACES presents a clear-eyed (and often very funny) analysis of anti-free speech student movements, which have made college campuses the most dangerous place for ideas and liberty in America.

  • Ball of CollusionBall of Collusion Mccarthy, Andrew C. Encounter Books 出版 2019/3/12出版

    The real collusion in the 2016 election was not between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. It was between the Clinton campaign and the Obama administration. The law-enforcement and intelligence arms of government were placed in the service of the Democratic presidential bid and, failing that, were deployed against the incoming Republican administration, with the goal of strangling it in the cradle. The media-Democrat ollusion narrative,?scandalizing Donald Trump as cat paw of the Russian regime, is a studiously crafted illusion. As Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton fashioned a homebrew email system to conduct State Department business. Inevitably, she illegally transmitted classified intelligence, destroyed tens of thousands of government files, and obstructed investigations. Yet, the Justice Department and FBI xonerated?her, carrying out the will of President Obama, who had endorsed Clinton to be his successor and freely exchanged sensitive emails with her.Despite Clinton commanding lead in the polls, hyper-partisan intelligence officials decided they needed an nsurance policy?against a Trump presidency. Thus was born the Trump-Russia collusion narrative: built on an anonymously sourced ossier,?secretly underwritten by the Clinton campaign and compiled by a former British spy with links to the FBI and the Obama Justice Department. Though acknowledged to be alacious and unverified?at the FBI highest level, the dossier was used to build a counterintelligence investigation against Trump campaign. Desperate to derail Trump candidacy, political and intelligence operatives leaked the probe to the media.Miraculously, Trump won anyway. His rabid political opponents refused to accept the voters?decision. Though the collusion narrative had barely registered with the electorate, it was now peddled relentlessly by political operatives, intelligence agents, Justice Department officials, and media ideologues ?the vanguard of the rump Resistance.?Through secret surveillance, a sophisticated scheme to enable intelligence leaking, and tireless news coverage, the public was led to believe the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to steal the election. Not one to sit passively through an onslaught, President Trump fought back in his tumultuous way. Matters came to a head when he fired the FBI director, who had given explosive Senate testimony suggesting the president was a criminal suspect, despite privately assuring Trump that he was not. The resulting firestorm of partisan protest cowed the Justice to appoint a special counsel, whose seemingly limitless investigation has bedeviled the administration ever since.Yet as months passed, concrete evidence of collusion failed to materialize. Was the collusion narrative an elaborate fraud? And if so, choreographed by whom? Against Democrat-media caterwauling, a doughty group of lawmakers forced a shift in the spotlight from Trump to his investigators and accusers. It has exposed the thoroughgoing politicization of American law-enforcement and intelligence agencies. The institutions on which our nation depends for objective policing and clear-eyed analysis had injected themselves into the divisive politics of the 2016 election. They failed to forge a new Clinton administration. Will they succeed in bringing down President Trump?

  • Never Play DeadNever Play Dead Lahren, Tomi Broadside Books 出版 2019/7/2出版

    The Fox Nation host, Fox News contributor, and social media master argues that it’s time to square your shoulders, stand your ground and speak the truth.The conventional wisdom is that we need more civility and fewer arguments. If you have a controversial option, keep it to yourself. Tomi Lahren could not disagree more. It’s a trick. The same people whining about tone will call you names and applaud those who threaten you. We don’t need safe spaces, and you shouldn’t be patient and wait out the bullying. In Never Play Dead, Lahren encourages all Americans, especially women, to find their voice and speak out. She skewers the hypocrisy of the self-esteem movement that has made people afraid to stand up for themselves. Wherever Lahren goes, the # 1 question she gets isn’t about politics. It’s about her confidence in herself, her beliefs and who she is. Never Play Dead not only answers this question but helps you learn how to stand your ground, discover how resilient you are and find your fearless side. In this book, she offers the antidote to all that: worry less about who might offend, and focus on who you might inspire. In the long-run, you will never regret being forceful when the truth is on your side.Lahren worked her way out of South Dakota to television fame in LA, surviving social isolation, a truly terrible boyfriend, awful workplaces, and getting fired in front of a million haters. Along the way, she was tempted to keep quiet, but she never did. Now she calls out the comment trolls, the political correctness police, the terminally jealous, and the ever-escalation victim culture that tells you all your failures are because of the system (and therefore there’s nothing you can do about it). Whether you’ve been told you’re not good enough by parents, lovers, frenemies, bad bosses, or social media, it’s time to take Lahren’s advice and fight back. It’s better to lose friends and followers than to lose yourself. The truth is, you may find more people who agree with you than you think. It’s time to shed your fear. With Never Play Dead she inspires you to stand up—and shows you how.

  • Beyond CharlottesvilleBeyond Charlottesville Mcauliffe, Terry Thomas Dunne Books 出版 2019/7/16出版

    The former governor of Virginia tells the behind-the-scenes story of the violent nite the Right?rally in Charlottesvillend shows how we can prevent other Charlottesvilles from happening. When Governor Terry McAuliffe hung up the phone on the afternoon of the violent nite the Right?rally in Charlottesville, he was sure Donald Trump would do the right thing as president: condemn the white supremacists who descended on the college town and who caused McAuliffe to declare a state of emergency that morning. He didn. Instead Trump declared there was atred, bigotry and violence on many sides.?Trump was condemned from many sides himself, even by many Republicans, but the damage was done. He excused and thus egged on the terrorists at the moment when he could have stopped them in their tracks.In Beyond Charlottesville, McAuliffe LOOKS at the forces and events that led to the tragedy IN Charlottesville, including the vicious murder of Heather Heyer and the death of two state troopers in a helicopter accident. He doesn whitewash Virginia history and discusses a KKK protest over the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee. He takes a hard real-time behind-the-scenes look at the actions of everyone on that fateful August 12, including himself, to see what could have been done. He lays out what was done afterwards to prevent future Charlottesvillesnd what still needs to be done as America in general and Virginia in particular continue to grapple with their history of racism.Beyond Charlottesville will be the definitive account of an infamous chapter in our history, seared indelibly into memory, sure to be cited for years as a crucial reference point in the long struggle to fight racism, extremism and hate.

  • Empire of DemocracyEmpire of Democracy Reid-henry, Simon Baker & Taylor Books 出版 2019/6/25出版

    The first panoramic history of the Western world from the 1970s to the present day, Empire of Democracy is the story for those asking how we got to where we are.Half a century ago, at the height of the Cold War and amidst a world economic crisis, the Western democracies were forced to undergo a profound transformation. Against what some saw as a full-scale “crisis of democracy”— with race riots, anti-Vietnam marches and a wave of worker discontent sowing crisis from one nation to the next— a new political-economic order was devised and the postwar social contract was torn up and written anew. In this epic narrative of the events that have shaped our own times, Simon Reid-Henry shows how liberal democracy, and western history with it, was profoundly reimagined when the postwar Golden Age ended. As the institutions of liberal rule were reinvented, a new generation of politicians emerged: Thatcher, Reagan, Mitterrand, Kohl. The late twentieth century heyday they oversaw carried the Western democracies triumphantly to victory in the Cold War and into the economic boom of the 1990s. But equally it led them into the fiasco of Iraq, to the high drama of the financial crisis in 2007/8, and ultimately to the anti-liberal surge of our own times. The present crisis of liberalism enjoins us to revisit these as yet unscripted decades. The era we have all been living through is closing out, democracy is turning on its axis once again. As this panoramic history poignantly reminds us, the choices we make going forward require us first to come to terms with where we have been.

  • Double DownDouble Down Hurt, Charles Center st 出版 2019/6/11出版

    Learn why President Trump is the ideal changemaker that can put an end to America's uncontrollable and corrupt system of government ruled by special interest.Trump Saves America is the story of the unlikeliest of heroes who emerged from the unlikeliest of places to take up the impossible cause of a truly forgotten people. They are people who love their country, trust their higher God, obey laws and will do anything for their family and neighbors. They are the very people the Founders envisioned when they hatched the radical idea of self-governance. This is the story of a Leviathan government - the most powerful political force in the history of mankind - that has become dangerously unmoored from the people it represents. It is the story of how elites and the politically comfortable controlling both parties in Washington have utterly lost touch. They don't even realize how much the people they represent despise the uncontrollable Leviathan.The establishment has tried their best to ignore Donald Trump-except to brand him as a racist, a xenophobe, an isolationist, and a dangerous, violence-inciting war monger. All standards of reporting vanished. In the era of Trump, no sort of criticism was off-limits. They openly mocked his looks, ridiculed his private business accomplishments, pilloried his family and children and made fun of his foreign-born wife for her accent!The Leviathan has grown untamable. Democrats and Republicans run for office year after year on promises they have no intention of keeping. Neither side wants to fix a single problem. The whole thing has become one giant ungovernable, corrupt Ponzi scheme that - one day - will come crashing down.Charles Hurt advocates for the "Nuclear Option" for dealing with this mess: just blow the whole damned thing up. Whatever is presidential or diplomatic, let's try the opposite. Whatever these people in Washington find most horrifying, let's try that. Finally, the multi-headed Leviathan swamp monster has met the perfect dragon slayer in Donald Trump. Trump Saves America examines each corrupt head of this Leviathan, and why Donald Trump is the only good answer to fixing it.

  • The Conservative SensibilityThe Conservative Sensibility Will, George F. Baker & Taylor Books 出版 2019/6/4出版

    From the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, a monumental new reflection on American conservatism, examining how the Founders' belief in natural rights created a great American political tradition--one that now finds itself under threat. For more than four decades, George F. Will has attempted to discern the principles of the Western political tradition and apply them to America's civic life. Today, the stakes could hardly be higher. Vital questions about the nature of man, of rights, of equality, of majority rule are bubbling just beneath the surface of daily events in America. The Founders' vision, articulated first in the Declaration of Independence and carried out in the Constitution, gave the new republic a framework for government unique in world history. Their beliefs in natural rights, limited government, religious freedom, and in human virtue and dignity ushered in two centuries of American prosperity. Now, as Will shows, conservatism is under threat--both from progressives and elements inside the Republican Party. America has become an administrative state, while destructive trends have overtaken family life and higher education. Semi-autonomous executive agencies wield essentially unaccountable power. Congress has failed in its duty to exercise its legislative powers. And the executive branch has slipped the Constitution's leash. In the intellectual battle between the vision of Founding Fathers like James Madison, who advanced the notion of natural rights that pre-exist government, and the progressivism advanced by Woodrow Wilson, the Founders have been losing. It's time to reverse America's political fortunes. Expansive, intellectually thrilling, and written with the erudite wit that has made Will beloved by millions of readers, The Conservative Sensibility is an extraordinary new book from one of America's most celebrated political writers.

  • The Corps of Social EngineersThe Corps of Social Engineers Hasson, James Gateway Books 出版 2019/6/18出版

    Our military has one job: protect America’s interests. But over the last decade, political correctness has seeped into the military, hampering our armed services’ readiness. In today’s Army, for example, a sergeant who wishes to discipline a new private can only force the private to perform five pushups. Female officers are assigned to infantry and Special Forces units in the face of vocal and repeated objections from the joint chiefs. Environmental regulations have diverted essential resources away from combat preparations. In Stand Down, former Army Captain and military readiness expert James Hasson explains how political correctness has softened and undermined today’s military—and what we can do to reverse the damage done.

  • American BreakdownAmerican Breakdown Bromwich, David Verso Books 出版 2019/6/25出版

    Leading essayist David Bromwich explores the historical hollowing out of American democracy and Trump's rise to powerWith a clear-eyed, incisive style Bromwich traces the root cause of Trump's ascendency, starting with the Nixon years and through Obama's failed strategy of reconciliation. Focusing on the dangers and disasters of Trump's first years in office, these essays capture the initial shock of Trump's win while at the same time criticizing the Democratic Party's lack of a clear progressive agenda. Trump is no aberration but rather the result of decades of privatization, a widening wealth gap, and gutted social spending.For readers of Jane Mayer and David Cay Johnston, this collection skewers everyone Trump and Dick Cheney to Bill Clinton and Obama. Bromwich traces the evolution of the Democratic party since the 1980s and goes beyond the Democrat-Republican ideological divide to show that our current political system does not work for the majority of Americans.For those looking for nuanced answers to how we got here, Bromwich lays out the origins of our partisan politics, criticizing the war machine and austerity politics along the way. He sees the newly elected Democratic congress as a potential force for change, arguing that it's more urgent than ever to confront Trump's hateful message with a new type of progressive politics.

  • The Fall of WisconsinThe Fall of Wisconsin Kaufman, Dan W W Norton & Co Inc 出版 2019/7/9出版

    For more than a century, Wisconsin has been known nationwide for its progressive ideas and government. It famously served as a "laboratory of democracy," a cradle of the labor and environmental movements, and birthplace of the Wisconsin Idea, which championed expertise in the service of the common good. But following a Republican sweep of the state government in 2010, Wisconsin political heritage was overturned, and the state went Republican for the first time in three decades in the 2016 presidential election, elevating Donald J. Trump to the presidency.The Fall of Wisconsin is a deeply reported, searing account of how the state progressive tradition was undone and turned into a model for national conservatives bent on remaking the country. Dan Kaufman, a Wisconsin native who has been covering the story for several years, traces the history of progressivism that made Wisconsin so widely admired, from the work of celebrated politicians like Robert "Fighting Bob" La Follette and Gaylord Nelson, to local traditions like Milwaukee ewer socialism,?to the conservationist ideas of Aldo Leopold and the state Native American tribes. Kaufman reveals how the ivide-and-conquer?strategy of Governor Scott Walker and his allies pitted Wisconsin citizens against one another so powerful corporations and wealthy donors could effectively take control of state government. As a result, laws protecting voting rights, labor unions, the environment, and public education were rapidly dismantled.Neither sentimental nor despairing, Kaufman also chronicles the remarkable efforts of citizens who are fighting to reclaim Wisconsin progressive legacy against tremendous odds: Chris Taylor, a Democratic assemblywoman exposing the national conservative infrastructure, Mike Wiggins, the head of a Chippewa tribe battling an out-of-state mining company, and Randy Bryce, the ironworker whose long-shot challenge to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has galvanized national resistance to Trump.
