Operation Drain the Swamp By Adam Andrzejewski



Operation Drain the Swamp

President Trump has said over and over that he wants to “drain the swamp.” But is it a swamp or an ocean? It’s about time the American people had some hard facts regarding the federal bureaucracy. In Adam Andrzejewski’s Operation Drain the Swamphe exposes who receives how much, where they work, and what they do. Most importantly, he reveals how much these bureaucrats cost the American taxpayer.

In Operation Drain the Swamp, you’ll learn that:

·     In the swamp, six figure salaries are the norm; there are 78 agencies where the average salary is $100,000 or more;
·     Federal bureaucrats are paid $1.1 million every minute, $65.6 million every hour, and over half a billion dollars per day;
·     In 2016, there were more than 330,000 disclosed federal bonuses paid;
·     There are more than 35,000 lawyers in the administrative state. The army of lawyers in the employ of the federal government assures that no aspect of American life is untouched by the swamp’s appendages;
·     The VA is offering anything but care for our great vets. While veterans were suffering at the hands of a broken bureaucratic machine, the VA doled out tens of thousands of undeserved performance bonuses: $150 million per year;
·     From 2015 to 2016 the VA made 20,711 new hires, but just 2,091 were doctors, continuing the historical 10:1 doctor to non-doctor employee hiring ratio;
·     In 2016, the VA employed 3,498 police officers at a total cost of $172 million - all names and locations of these officers, however, were redacted;
·     The average physician at the VA makes around $205,000 a year, meaning the VA could employ 840 doctors instead of 3,498 police officers;
·     ...and so much more!

In America today, “the swamp” is a real thing: a permanent government within our government that will outlast this administration and the next one and the one after that. It has a massive architecture that can be measured. It is composed of tens of thousands of individuals and lobbyists - many of whom operate well outside the confines of Washington, D.C.

During the 2016 presidential election, the supporters of Donald Trump on the right - and even those supporting Bernie Sanders on the left - felt that the “system was rigged” for insiders. Now, Adam highlights the facts and stories to prove it. In Operation Drain the Swamp, he offers a step-by-step guide to civil service reforms.

The Lives of the Constitution By Joseph Tartakovsky


THE LIVES OF THE CONSTITUTION
By Joseph Tartakovsky

We live in an era of uncertainty about the future of our Constitution, but America’s constitutional adventure is the inspiring story of how our people, for 230 years, have overcome one constitutional challenge after another. In his compelling new history, The Lives of the Constitution: Ten Exceptional Minds that Shaped America’s Supreme Law, Joseph Tartakovsky, an attorney and historian who served as Nevada’s Deputy Solicitor General, tells the epic and unexpected story of our Constitution through the eyes of ten extraordinary individuals - some renowned, like Alexander Hamilton and Woodrow Wilson, and some forgotten, like James Wilson and Ida B. Wells-Barnett.

Tartakovsky brings to life the struggles of these men and women over our supreme law from its origins in revolutionary America to the age of Trump. Sweeping from settings as diverse as Gold Rush California to the halls of Congress, and crowded with a vivid Dickensian cast, Tartakovsky shows how our nation has grappled with questions like racial and sexual equality, free speech, economic liberty, gun rights, immigration, and the size of government. This is the first book to tell the story of our Constitution as the story of our people and its unique constitutional culture.

In The Lives of the Constitution, you’ll learn:

·     That we live in Alexander Hamilton’s America today (not Thomas Jefferson’s);
·     How Daniel Webster sought to avert the Civil War;
·     How Justice Stephen Field defined our immigration law;
·     How Alexis de Tocqueville misunderstood America;
·     How Robert Jackson balanced liberty and order in the battle against Nazism and Communism;
·     How Antonin Scalia died warning Americans about the ever-growing reach of the Supreme Court; and
·     That Ida Wells-Barnett was a one-woman army who fought a lonely moral and journalistic war against anti-black violence and misogyny between Reconstruction and the Jazz Age.

From the 1787 Philadelphia Convention to the clash over gay marriage, The Lives of the Constitution is a grand tour through two centuries of constitutional history as never told before, and an education in the principles that sustain America in the most astonishing experiment in government ever undertaken.

About the Author: Joseph Tartakovsky is the James Wilson Fellow in Constitutional Law at the Claremont Institute for the Study of Statesmanship and Political Philosophy and an editor at the Claremont Review of Books. His writings have appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Times. He has served as the Deputy Solicitor General of Nevada, a white-collar criminal litigator at an international law firm, and as a law clerk to a federal appellate judge.

Racing Against History By Rick Richman


RACING AGAINST HISTORY
The 1940 Campaign for a Jewish Army to Fight Hitler
By Rick Richman

As we approach the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding, it is a time to remember the events leading up to that historic day and those who fought for the Jewish state. In his absorbing and ground-breaking new book, RACING AGAINST HISTORY: The 1940 Campaign for a Jewish Army to Fight Hitler, author Rick Richman tells the stunning story of the three greatest Jewish leaders in the world at the time who sought to turn the tide of history.

The three most prominent Zionist leaders of their time -- David Ben-Gurion, Vladimir Jabotinsky, and Chaim Weizmann -- representing the left, right, and center of Jewish political thinking -- traveled to a United States gripped by isolationism, as part of a year-long effort to organize a worldwide Jewish army at the beginning of World War II.

Although they met with indifference from FDR and his administration, as well as disinterest from an American Jewish establishment that feared accusations of warmongering or dual loyalty, they struck a powerful chord among the many thousands of American Jews who turned out to hear their speeches. Richman shows how their valor helped unite and mobilize American Jews, setting the stage -- only eight years later -- for the founding the Jewish state.

Unlike Hollywood in the ‘40s which was largely silent, two recent movies, “Dunkirk” and “Darkest Hour,” have generated new interest in the momentous events of 1940, as Britain faced military defeat but rose to victory under the leadership of Winston Churchill. RACING AGAINST HISTORY recounts how:

·     Within days of Churchill’s becoming prime minister, the Jewish leaders offered him military support -- a force of at least 50,000 soldiers, to be drawn from the half-million stateless Jews, as well as Jewish volunteers from neutral countries. Weizmann, Jabotinsky and Ben-Gurion had each been involved with the Jewish Legion, which fought on the Allied side in World War I. Now that one of the Nazi war aims was to destroy European Jewry, the three leaders wanted Jews to be in the forefront of the military response.
·     Churchill immediately recognized the strategic significance of a Jewish military force: it would enable key British troops to leave Palestine and fight elsewhere, where they were desperately needed. Jabotinsky and Ben-Gurion wanted the Jewish Army available on all fronts, wherever Britain needed help. With America frozen in isolationism, every battalion and division available to support Britain was critical.
·     There were three historic speeches that galvanized the Western world over two days in June 1940: (a) Churchill’s “Finest Hour” speech, (b) de Gaulle’s “I speak for France” radio broadcast, and (c) Jabotinsky’s “No Surrender” address before an overflow audience of 5,000 in New York City.  

Among the many fascinating facts and insights culled from RACING AGAINST HISTORY: 

·     Weizmann, the oldest of the three leaders at 65 (when the retirement age was 60), braved a voyage across the Atlantic patrolled by German submarines, to alert American Jews that European Jews and Judaism were being destroyed.
·     Weizmann met privately with FDR, who told him a Jewish homeland -- mandated by the League of Nations in 1922 -- would have to wait until after the war. Later in 1940, the U.S. moved to restrict Jewish immigration to America.
·     Hadassah was the Jewish organization in America that most impressed Ben-Gurion, much more than the Zionist Organization of America: convinced that Hadassah president Tamar de Sola Pool displayed the guts and resolve that others lacked, he enlisted her help to inspire American Zionists to rise to the occasion.
·     Facing widespread anti-Semitism, Jewish studio heads in Hollywood were largely silent. The only outspoken executive -- Harry Warner of Warner Bros. -- became the subject of a congressional investigation into “pro-war propaganda.”
·     One example of 1940 isolationist sentiment: Irving Berlin’s original introduction to “God Bless America,” contains isolationist rhetoric but was changed after Kristallnacht.

Richman’s book is based on previously unpublished speeches, diaries, and letters of all three leaders, including excerpts from Ben-Gurion’s 1940 diary translated into English for the first time. The three Zionist leaders’ race against history is a historic saga, one that is particularly important today when the Jewish state faces continual existential threats.

About the Author: Rick Richman has written for Commentary, The Jewish Journal, The Jewish Press, Mosaic Magazine, The New York Sun, PJ Media, The Tower Magazine, and other publications, and founded the Jewish Current Issues blog in 2003. He is the author of the chapter on American Zionism in "What America Owes the Jews," "What Jews Owe America" and "The New War on Israel." He was a featured commentator in the 2014 documentary, "Body and Soul: The State of the Jewish Nation."

Dupes By Paul Kengor, PhD


AMERICAN “DUPES” FOR RUSSIA: 
THE LONG AND UGLY HISTORY

Bestselling author Paul Kengor reveals the Ted Kennedy scandals worse than Chappaquiddick - how Stalin played FDR, Hollywood dupes, and much more...

Dr. Paul Kengor reveals all the details in an updated edition of his timeless book, Dupes: How America’s Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century, about progressives who were knowing accomplices and/or victims of deception. In the years since Dupes was first published, many new dupes have revealed themselves - including an entire generation inclined to think favorably of Communism, ignorant of the crimes against humanity committed in its name. Equally important, more information has emerged about the duping that occurred in the 20th century.

Turn on cable TV and you’ll find breathless coverage of supposed collusion between Russia and the American president. Lost in this story are the shocking reports of a leading U.S. politician who actually tried to collaborate with the Russian leadership. The politician in question is now in the news for another scandal: Senator Ted Kennedy, whose ugly actions are the subject of the acclaimed new movie, “Chappaquiddick.”

Now, New York Times bestselling author Paul Kengor, PhD reveals another Kennedy scandal as ugly as Chappaquiddick: Ted Kennedy secretly approached the Russian leadership to undermine not one but two American presidents. The Kennedy story is just one of many stunning revelations in a book that exposes the legions of liberals who have (wittingly and unwittingly) aided America’s most dangerous opponents.

Based on never-before published FBI files, Soviet archives, and other primary sources, Dupes also reveals:

·     How Franklin Roosevelt was duped by “Uncle Joe” Stalin - and by a top adviser who may have been a Soviet agent - despite clear warnings from fellow Democrats;
·     Jimmy Carter’s woeful record dealing with America’s two chief foes of the past century;
·     How John Kerry’s accusations that American soldiers committed war crimes in Vietnam may have been the product of Soviet disinformation;
·     Soviet records that demonstrate beyond doubt the Communists’ targeting of American liberals;
·     How liberals still defend the same Communists who trashed Democratic icons - and still attack the anti-Communists who tried to spare those Democrats from manipulation;
·     A potpourri of political-ideological outrages of the Obama years, including the stunning evidence of the extensive Communist ties of Barack Obama’s mentor;
·     Today’s dupes, including:
·     the dupes of the War on Terror;
·     a high-profile movie portraying Dalton Trumbo as a persecuted freedom fighter rather than an apologist for the USSR;
·     New York Times articles insisting Communism “made women’s lives better” and even gave them “better sex;” and how Angela Davis, honorary co-chair of the “Women’s March” in 2017, was a hardcore Communist;
·     New York City, itself, which has twice elected Mayor de Blasio, who in the 1980s was so pro-Communist that he once sold subscriptions to the Nicaraguan Sandinistas’ hardline party newspaper; and
·     The biggest shocker which happened in the 2016 presidential primaries, when Bernie Sanders - a self-avowed socialist who spent part of his youth on a Marxist-Stalinist kibbutz in Israel and honeymooned with his wife in the Soviet Union - received 13 million votes... and who edged out Sanders among the Democrats? Hillary Clinton, a student of Saul Alinsky, won the popular vote in the general election.

It’s a disturbing trend when survey data since the 2008 election of Barack Obama confirms that millennials and young people in general increasingly say they prefer socialism over capitalism. Common sense facts don’t matter to those who believe more people were killed under George W. Bush than under Joseph Stalin, who annihilated tens of millions. As Stalin said in 1930, “Never mind, they’ll swallow it.”

“A detailed, riveting history of those who secretly served the enemy. Not to be missed!”
--PETER SCHWEIZER, bestselling author of “Secret Empires” and “Clinton Cash”

“Nothing short of horrifying... In terms of putting the last 100 years in perspective, Dupes may be one of the most significant literary offerings of our time.” --Washington Times

About the Author: Paul Kengor, PhD, is the New York Times bestselling author of “A Pope and a President,” “God and Ronald Reagan,” “The Crusader,” and other books. He is a professor of political science and executive director of the Center for Vision and Values at Grove City College.

Ruling Ideas By David Horowitz

The Black Book of the American Left
Volume IX: Ruling Ideas
By David Horowitz

New York Times best-selling author David Horowitz's new book is Ruling Ideas, Volume IX of The Black Book of the American Left, a multi-volume collection of his conservative writings that is the most ambitious effort ever undertaken to define the Left and its agenda. The Black Book of the American Left collects all of Horowitz's writings over the last thirty years - at once a sharp incision to the heart of the Left's agenda; an exploration of routes conservatives might take in response to its permanent assault on America's values and power; and a unique trip log showing the evolving intellectual journey of one of our bravest and most original thinkers.

The previous eight volumes have explored the battlegrounds - the university, racial relations, popular culture, etc. - where the left attempts to "radically transform" America. This ninth and final volume of The Black Book of the American Left is a summary look at the ideas in the bone marrow of the left, the ideas that give it momentum and make this war against America a forever war.

Chief among them is the notion that “equality” must be created by any means necessary. But because disparities and disproportions of talent, intelligence and physical ability are so intrinsic and so basic to the entire human enterprise, creating “equality” requires the violence of social engineering, which is why the utopias of the Left always turn out to be killing fields. The demands for “social justice” by today’s progressives are another version of the demands for equality by yesterday’s Marxist Leninists. Both produce the destruction of human freedom.

Horowitz’s understanding that the agenda of the Left is to wage war against freedom - especially the freedom of individuals to resist its social redeemers and their malign plans - is what led David Horowitz to devote the last forty years of his life - and all nine volumes of The Black Book of the American Left - to opposing this destructive cause.

In Ruling Ideas, you will learn about:

·     The fate of the Marxist idea
·     Slavery and the modern reparations movement
·     America’s second Civil War, “People of Color” and Black Lives Matter
·     Identity politics - the antithesis of the American idea
·     The irrational treatment of President Trump by the Democrats
·     David’s relationship with Christopher Hitchens

We encourage our readers to visit BlackBookOfTheAmericanLeft.com, which features Horowitz’s introductions to Volumes 1-8 of this 10-volume series, along with their tables of contents, reviews and interviews with the author. (Order HERE.) 

About the Author: David Horowitz is the bestselling author of numerous books including Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America (2017), Unholy Alliance (2004), The Party of Defeat (2008) and Take No Prisoners: The Battle Plan for Defeating the Left (2014). David is the founder and chairman of the David Horowitz Freedom Center which is dedicated to the defense of free societies whose moral, cultural and economic foundations are under attack by enemies both secular and religious, at home and abroad.

The Trump White House By Ronald Kessler

The Trump White House
Changing the Rules of the Game
Includes an Exclusive Interview with President Trump

By New York Times Best-selling Author Ronald Kessler

The Unvarnished and Unbiased Inside Story of President Donald Trump and His White House

Based on exclusive interviews with President Trump and his staff, THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE: Changing the Rules of the Game, by Ronald Kessler, tells the real story of what Donald Trump is like, who influences him, how he makes decisions, what he says about the people around him, and how he operates when the television lights go off, while portraying the inside story of the successes that have already brought solid results as well as the stumbles that have turned off even longtime supporters and undercut his agenda.

THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE is the book Trump's fans have been waiting for. The book is unique because it is the only overall favorable book on Trump and his presidency. At the same time, the book is an honest journalistic effort with negative items and inside tidbits that will keep both sides turning the pages.

THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE reveals:


  • Trump aides Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have been responsible for Trump’s most disastrous decisions. Trump is aware that his daughter and son-in-law are problems and has hinted to them that they should go back to New York. Seeing Jared on TV, Trump said, “Look at Jared, he looks like a little boy, like a child.”
  • First Lady Melania Trump has a tremendous impact on policy and strategy. She sits in on meetings and is widely admired by aides for her judgment. Trump’s butler attested that “Melania rules the roost.”
  • Kellyanne Conway is the number one White House leaker.
  • Trump’s Secret Service director Randolph “Tex” Alles proposed withdrawing protection from some family members and aides to save money. Horrified White House staffers shot down the idea.
  • Trump has told friends that billionaires are constantly asking him to fix them up with longtime Communications Director Hope Hicks, a former model, but he says he refuses.
  • Trump calls certain reporters directly, feeding them stories attributed to “a senior White House official,” creating the impression that the White House leaks even more than it already does.

Never before has an American president had so much impact on the country and the world in so short a time as Donald Trump. Yet no president has stirred so much controversy, dominating media coverage and conversation both pro and con. Yet for all the media coverage, Trump remains a cipher.

Months after Trump took office, consumer confidence hit a seventeen-year high, unemployment plummeted to the lowest level in seventeen years, and the stock market zoomed to repeated record highs.

At the same time, ISIS was nearly defeated, Arab countries banded together to stop financing terrorists and promoting radical Islamic ideology, and Trump’s decision to send missiles into Syria because of its use of chemical weapons and his strident warnings to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made it clear to adversaries that they take on the United States at their peril.

Ronald Kessler has known Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for two decades and understands him better than any other journalist. The book includes an exclusive interview with The President - the only interview he says he has given or will give for a book as president.

Complete with color photographs, THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE is filled with anecdotes that flesh out the human being that is Donald Trump: his generosity, his tirades, his contrition... as he displays the tough, rough exterior and hides his soft emotional side. Crammed with media-grabbing revelations, THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE is the inside story that answers the question: Who is Donald Trump?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: RONALD KESSLER is the New York Times bestselling author of The First Family Detail, The Secrets of the FBI, In the President’s Secret Service, and The CIA at War. A former Wall Street Journal and Washington Post investigative reporter, Kessler has won eighteen journalism awards, including two George Polk Awards - one for national reporting and one for community service. He was named a Washingtonian of the Year by Washingtonian magazine.

Killing the Deep State by Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D.

NY Times Bestseller Jerome Corsi
Reveals the Secret Plan to Destroy Trump

“The Deep State will not care if Trump is removed from office by impeaching him, declaring him mentally incompetent, or in the final resort, by assassinating him, as long as he is removed from office before the completion of his first term.” -- Jerome Corsi, “Killing the Deep State”

Humanix Books is proud to present Killing the Deep State: The Fight to Save President Trump, an extraordinary expose by bestselling writer Jerome Corsi that shatters the myth of who really controls the United States of America.

No, it’s not President Donald Trump and it’s not the Senate or the House. Rather, America is under the leadership of the Deep State, a shadowy cabal of government employees who diabolically influence policy without regard to the elected leadership. Secretly operating behind the curtain of “national security” in Washington, D.C., the Deep State is getting stronger by the day and every American should be terrified of it.

In Killing the Deep State, Corsi unmasks the powerful players who pull the real strings in Washington. Corsi, author of the New York Times bestsellers “The Obama Nation” and “Unfit for Command,” takes no prisoners as he rips the veil off the Deep State and the powerful agencies behind them - the FBI, CIA, DOJ, NSA, and the Federal Reserve. And he reveals clearly and precisely how no government agency, department or official inside Washington - including the president - is immune from its powerful grip.

In Killing the Deep State, Corsi lays it all out - from alarming evidence that the FBI planned to take out Trump, to a plan that will help the commander-in-chief and his allies stop, expose and destroy this dangerous shadow government. As Corsi reveals, the effort to destroy the Trump presidency was well underway in the weeks before the momentous 2016 election – with one senior FBI official describing it as an “insurance” policy just in case he won. 

Among the incredible revelations in Killing the Deep State are:

  • “The Smoking Gun” – irrefutable digital evidence of “the amount of anti-Trump hatred at the leadership of the FBI and DOJ during the election and afterward.”
  • The explosive $675,000 money trail that leads from the Democratic Party to the top levels of the FBI.
  • Barack Obama’s ties to the Deep State and how he continues to “pull strings” and orchestrate efforts to undermine President Trump at every turn.
  • How Deep State operatives turned FBI director James Comey’s firing and the Robert Mueller probe into a Trump hunting expedition “with virtually unlimited scope, unlimited completion deadline, and unlimited funding.”
  • How the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee-funded Fusion GPS Trump Dossier came about.
  • Bombshell evidence that the Russians were not involved in accessing the e-mails of John Podesta, chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.
  • The real truth about “Russian collusion” - irrefutable proof that the real collusion in the Russia’s meddling into the 2016 presidential election involved Democrats.
  • The identity of the U.S.-based terror group spearheading anti-Trump efforts – an evil group that equates law enforcement with fascism and racism - yet is championed by the mainstream media.
  • Which mainstream media outlet published formal “standards” equating conservatism with racism and white supremacy.

In Killing the Deep State, Corsi offers proof that the FBI has now taken the lead to stop Trump once and for all. But there is a way out - a way to defeat the hard-leftists at their own game. Corsi also warns that the effort to stop and remove Trump has been well underway. He shows how Trump is outnumbered and outgunned with the help of liberal billionaires like George Soros. Still, Corsi says Trump can vanquish the Deep State and his most virulent opponents including the #NeverTrumpers once and for all.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Jerome R. Corsi received a Ph.D. from Harvard University in Political Science in 1972. He is an investigative journalist and senior staff writer for several conservative websites. Corsi is the author of six New York Times bestsellers including the #1 bestsellers Unfit for Command and The Obama Nation. He has been a frequent guest on major networks, including Fox News, Newsmax, and CNN.
