Wayne Root's Got the Winning EDGE

Las Vegas Oddsmaker Wayne Allyn Root, Dubbed by National Media "the King of Vegas," Offers his Expert Analysis and Commentary to Media for College Football Bowl Season & NFL Post Season

“Wayne's the king of sports handicappers…he's the Warren Buffett of his world.”
--James J. Cramer, CNBC Host of “Mad Money”

College Football Bowl Season is underway. Millions of American sports fans will be wagering billions of dollars on these 35 Post Season games. Then the NFL Post Season starts - and the betting there will dwarf the Bowl Season. Over $6 billion will be bet on just one game - the Super Bowl.

Your audience will want expert commentary and analysis on these games. They want to hear "what Vegas thinks."

One man stands out as "the Jimmy The Greek" of our generation. That could be because as a 27-year-old, he became Jimmy the Greek's television partner and co-host at CNBC (then called Financial News Network). The baton was handed off. "The Greek" was soon sent off into retirement and his young co-host became a star. Wayne Allyn Root is quite simply the most honored professional sports handicapper and Vegas oddsmaker in the world. He is the brand name of sports gaming - dubbed by the national media as “the King of Vegas,” “The Face of Las Vegas Gambling,” “America's Oddsmaker,” and “The Prince of Prognosticators." 

Wayne is the only oddsmaker or professional sports handicapper to ever be awarded his own star by the Las Vegas Walk of Stars (in front of New York New York Casino Resort). Over 3 million sports bettors have called Wayne for his advice - more than any sports handicapper in history. It is estimated that over $3 billion dollars per year is bet on Wayne's advice. But Wayne is much more than an oddsmaker; he is a CEO, best-selling author, and national media personality. Wayne makes over one thousand media appearances per year, appearing on Fox News, Fox Business, CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, and hundreds of radio stations across the country to talk, debate and infuriate on the topics of politics, business and sports.

Now Wayne is available to talk NCAA Bowls, and NFL Post Season on your TV or radio station this Holiday Season. Wayne is dynamic, charismatic, colorful, controversial, fiery, outspoken, and telegenic. Your audience will love him or hate him - but no one will ever tune out! [Go to Wayne's site now...]

Rita Cosby Benefits the Vets

I was privileged to be invited to the home of Mitzi Perdue last night at 5th Avenue in Manhattan - a gorgeous place overlooking all of Central Park and what seemed to me to be the most stunning view I'd ever seen from an apartment in NYC.  Mitzi is the wife of the late Frank Perdue, "the chicken man" and her wonderful EggScapes (decorated eggs) were on display all over her elegant apartment.

The event was a book party and signing for Rita Cosby's latest book, Quiet Hero written about her father who was a POW and war hero, the proceeds which benefit The USO and Wounded Warriors. 

She was also there for Robert Cancro, Chairman Emeritus of NYU's Dept. of Psychiatry, who launched the United Stress Disorders Association and announced Rita as its spokesperson in support of vets who suffer from PTSD, which I can relate to since both my father and stepfather suffered from it after their service in the Korean War.

Showdown With Evil By Jamie Glazov

You probably know Dr. Glazov as the Editor of and from his critically acclaimed and best-selling book, United in Hate: The Left's Romance with Tyranny and Terror.

Showdown With Evil: Our Struggle Against Tyranny and Terror is a collection of Dr. Jamie Glazov's best interviews, while serving as editor of, with the leading intellectuals and newsmakers of our time - all of whom contribute to understanding, and opposing, radical Islam and its leftist apologists.

Glazov, whose parents were dissidents in the former Soviet Union, shows in his conduct of these top-notch interviews that he understands the values of freedom and the need to fight for it.

The collection, which begins with a Foreword by Richard Perle, former assistant Secretary of Defense for the Reagan administration, offers a powerful and honest assessment of the implications of the threat we face in our terror war - as well as a warning that should not go unheeded. It's a powerful crash course in how to protect American liberty from its totalitarian enemies.

This collection of 29 interviews conducted over the course of the last several years by Jamie Glazov is relentlessly fascinating and engaging. As former Asst. Secretary of Defense Richard Perle states in the foreword, this is "an illuminating and important commentary on the largest issues facing America and the West," particularly the "Islamist agenda that has replaced communism as the principal threat to western values and civilization."

Glazov probes the impressive minds of some courageous conservative intellects like Victor Davis Hanson, Phyllis Chesler, Brigitte Gabriel, Andy C. McCarthy, Natan Sharansky, Christopher Hitchens, Theodore Dalrymple, Horowitz himself, even William F. Buckley, Jr., in chapters grouped into the following topics:

* Obama's Destructive Path
* Unholy Alliance
* Islam: The Religion of Peace?
* The Terror War
* The Evil Empire
* Leaving the Faith
* The Titans
* Looking to the Future of Freedom

If you are at all concerned about such issues as national security, Obama's impact on the future of America, the threat of fundamentalist Islam and the complicity of the Left, and the conflict between freedom and tyranny, then this collection is a must-have.

Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney, USAF (Ret.), has called Showdown with Evil "the most important book in America."

About the Author: Jamie Glazov holds a Ph.D. in history with specialties in U.S., Russian, and Canadian foreign policy. He is the editor of and the author of the critically acclaimed and best selling, United in Hate: The Left's Romance With Tyranny and Terror. He is also the author of Canadian Policy Toward Khrushchev’s Soviet Union and is the co-editor (with David Horowitz) of The Hate America Left.

The Republican Establishment and Revolution

By Larry Klayman - Live from LA

For us tea partiers who have high hopes that Tuesday's congressional midterm elections will transform the Republican Party into a fighting force for conservative and libertarian values and change, if the past is a prologue, we have another thing coming. For the last several decades at least, the blowhard Republican "country club" establishment has talked a "good game," but has not exactly been up to the task, to put it mildly. Tomorrow will be a watershed event, but only because it will mark the beginning of the next phase of the Revolution - the total peaceful removal of the traitorous establishment of both political parties.

Obamacare Endgame: If Doctors Choose to Put Patient Care First, They Can Look Forward to Fines or Jail Time
By Dr. Elaina George - Live from Atlanta

If Obamacare is completely implemented, doctors will no longer be practicing medicine. They will instead become the drones tasked with deciding who gets the meager healthcare crumbs doled out by the bureaucrats who have the ultimate power over patient life and death. Those who are deemed to have illnesses that require treatments, which are not cost-effective can expect a one-way ticket to a hospice. [more...]

Election 2010: America's Last Best Hope

By Dave Bego - Live from Indianapolis

The unions, the Obama Administration and the far left ideologues understand they can manipulate a large percentage of a gullible population through misconceptions, misinformation, attacks, and deception all in the name of “social justice” as taught in Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. In fact they, like their hero Alinsky, are masters of identifying people or groups that are susceptible to their “social justice” rhetoric, and thus are easily influenced. Their goal is to destroy the American Free market system and replace it with socialism. [more...]

Stewart and Colbert’s Rally about Nothing

By James Hirsen - Live from LA

Democrats wanted to use the Stewart/Colbert rally this past weekend to motivate young voters to participate in the midterm elections. But the three-hour rally consisted mainly of satire and comedy with humorous sketches and surprise musical guests. Organizing for America, Obama’s campaign entity, was at the train station welcoming rally-goers and signing people up for get-out-the-vote tasks. My prediction? For the midterm elections, the current indicator bodes ill for Obama and the Dems by extension. [more...]

New Governors Will Have Hands Full Reforming Education, Spending

By Kyle Olson - Live From Grand Rapids

With most of the media focusing their election coverage on whether or not Republicans will reclaim one or both houses of Congress, the 37 states that are about to elect (or re-elect) a governor got lost in the shuffle. If Republicans do as well as projected, most observers expect gridlock to descend upon Washington, D.C.  Here’s a brief overview of what’s at stake for the governors of three states.

The Tsunami Blasts Obama/Democrats

By John LeBoutillier - Live From New York

The Final Prediction: Tuesday will be an historic Election Day as the Republican Party - fueled by the Tea Party movement - will win back over 50 seats in the House and up to 8 seats in the U.S. Senate. The crucial independent voter - the key swing voter who always determines winners and losers - has swung away from Obama in 2008 and back to the Right in 2010. [more...]

The Charlie Sheen Democrats

By Joy Tiz - Live from Palm Springs

Reeling and staggering, the Democrats have been throwing wild punches for weeks; floating funding fictions, plotting to fabricate media chaos at Joe Miller’s expense and squandering taxpayer money to bring a court jester in front of the United States Congress.  This is what bedlam looks like.  Teams of Breitbart Republicans armed to the teeth with cell phones and video cameras are babysitting polling places.  The days of Republican enabling are over - at least for the moment. They will win big tomorrow, but only because they aren’t Democrats.  If they relapse into behaving like Democrats, they can anticipate the same harsh treatment. [more...]

Lethal Engagement By Joseph Klein

New Book Examines Relationship between the President, the UN, and Radical Islam

In his new book, Lethal Engagement: Barack Hussein Obama, The United Nations & Radical Islam, conservative columnist and United Nations correspondent Joseph Klein takes a critical look at President Obama's aggressive outreach to the Muslim world; his belief that the U.S. has a "moral responsibility" to lead the way toward a world without nuclear weapons even as he permits Iran to continue developing its nuclear arms capability; and his submission to the international consensus of the anti-Western United Nations.

Klein explains in Lethal Engagement how and why Obama is playing right into the Islamists' stealth strategy to undermine American laws, financial systems and democratic values that get in the way of radical Islamic priorities. This strategy includes manipulating our own laws and institutions against us in order to inject Sharia (Islamic law) into our legal and political system.

After exposing how radical Muslims are re-branding their barbaric ideology to deceive Americans, with President Obama's help, Klein offers solutions to take back our country.

Here are just a few of the multiple examples Klein provides in Lethal Engagement, from President Obama's words and actions, that should wake Americans up to the dangerous path the Obama administration is taking us down.  Klein explains how Obama is:

  • * Providing detained Islamic terrorist suspects full constitutional rights;
  • * Refusing to identify the enemy as they truly are - Islamic radicals who want to impose Sharia (Islamic law) on this country by violent and stealth means;
  • * Apologizing to the Muslim world for U.S. "arrogance" and Western "colonialism" while promising to make amends so that Islamists can practice their beliefs "as they see fit";
  • * Re-branding the barbaric supremacist Islamic ideology as a religion demonstrating "the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality";
  • * Inviting radical Muslims such as the president of the radical Islamic Society of North America (an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land terrorist funding case) to Ramadan dinners at the White House;
  • * Joining the radical Islamic-dominated UN Human Rights Council, which has successfully pushed forward the radical Muslim agenda to make "defamation" of Islam a violation of international law; and
  • * Nominating more Supreme Court justices who believe that international and foreign laws should be used to interpret the United States Constitution.
If you are tired of Islamists and their liberal elite supporters calling well-meaning American citizens 'bigots' or 'racists' for simply questioning what is behind the radical Islamic agenda and how President Obama is facilitating it, then you need to read Lethal Engagement: Barack Hussein Obama, The United Nations & Radical Islam, which will provide you with invaluable information gleaned from extensive, well-researched primary sources and from Klein's own pointed questioning of high level United Nations, Islamic and U.S. spokespersons at United Nations press briefings.

About the Author: Joseph Klein is the author of Global Deception: The UN's Stealth Assault on America's Freedom. A Harvard Law School graduate, he is an attorney and columnist, contributing to FrontPage Magazine and Canada Free Press as their United Nations correspondent and is a featured blogger for News Real Blog. Joseph is a guest on talk radio and TV shows, including Fox and Friends.

Choosing the Good Life By Dr. Gerard Lameiro

Will Americans Choose Economic Growth and Prosperity 
- Or Economic Decline and Poverty?

Dr. Lameiro answers this question and many more in his powerful and important new Kindle book, Choosing the Good Life: Two Competing Economic Visions.

Today, America is at an extremely critical juncture in our history.  We are a prosperous nation on the brink of economic decline.  We are currently in the midst of an exceptionally weak recovery, following the worst recession since the Great Depression. America is following a set of high tax and reckless spending policies that are creating astoundingly high deficits and unsustainably high debt levels.  Unemployment is very high at 9.6% with the very real possibility it will increase to 11.5% in 2011.

The dollar appears to be weakening and might even be abandoned as the reserve currency of the global economy.  Gold, a potential safe haven in times of fear, is soaring to incredible heights, indicating the skeptical outlook of the American people.  It looks as if America might be teetering on the verge of a second Great Recession in 2011 or worse.  Is the economy really all that bad?  Can we do anything about the economy?

Indeed, all these questions, all these debates, and all these battles, hinge on two competing economic visions when considering whether America can still live the "good life." What are these two economic visions? What economic vision will America choose? Dr. Lameiro believes we do have a choice.

Choosing the Good Life shines a bright light on one of the greatest issues of the 21st century. It also tees up one of the most vitally important decisions you will ever make as a citizen. Indeed, this book presents the two distinct and competing economic visions for what constitutes the "Good Life."

These economic visions represent two different economic systems, two different ways of looking at life, and two different ways of living life. In fact, they are based on two opposing philosophies of life.

Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, each economic vision is fighting for your support. Your choice of economic visions will help to determine whether America will grow or decline; whether we will live in prosperity or struggle with poverty and whether we will live in peace or at war. You have enormous power as a citizen to influence, shape and decide America's future. Truly, your choice and the choices of millions of other citizens will ultimately impact and help to determine which economic vision will become reality in America and in the world.

While this book addresses citizens in America in the early 21st century, its principles and knowledge apply equally well across both time and space. The ideas within Choosing the Good Life can be applicable to citizens in other nations today, too, and likely will be relevant for generations of citizens to come in the future. In that sense, it is a classic book on economic freedom.

Written by Gerard Francis Lameiro, America's Citizen-Philosopher, this book brings with it Dr. Lameiro's engaging and award-winning style, his optimistic vision, and his uncanny ability to make the complex very simple.  Downloadable at Amazon for Kindle, it's the most important book you'll read in a long time.

The Obama Identity by Edward Klein & John LeBoutillier

A Novel
(Or Is It?)
By Edward Klein & John LeBoutillier

In the summer of 2004, CIA agent Theodore J. Higginbothem, III was summoned by his boss to a hush-hush meeting in the basement of the National Museum of Health.

"Higgy," his boss whispered in his ear, "the CIA has a top-secret, off-the-books domestic spying operation in which we keep tabs on our most ambitious presidential hopefuls. I want you to do a complete workup on Barack Hussein Obama. Where was he born? Is he a Muslim? Is he a socialist? Who is behind him? What is Obama's real agenda?"

THE OBAMA IDENTITY, the new satirical novel by NY Times best-selling author Edward Klein and Fmr. Congressman John LeBoutillier, follows Higgy and his team as they travel all over the world - from Chicago to Mombasa to Honolulu to Jakarta and St. Petersburg, Russia - as they encounter Birthers and Bushes, Katie Couric and Muslim clerics. Along their hilarious and madcap journey, Higgy and his crack operatives discover startling secrets about the 44th President of the United States - a man some call "The Chosen One" and others refer to as an "Obamanation."

Among the many startling revelations in THE OBAMA IDENTITY:

· What Obama's Kenyan grandmother says about his birthplace;
· How a Muslim imam taught young Obama to apologize for America and bow to foreigners;
· How the Reverend Jeremiah Wright taught Obama to use the TelePrompTer;
· What happened to the videotapes showing Obama high-fiving the Reverend Wright after one of his anti-American sermons;
· How financier George Soros brought about the collapse of the American economy to help elect Obama;
· Why Obama blames everything on George W. Bush except Katie Couric's dismal ratings; and
· Who came up with the idea of carving Obama's face on Mount Rushmore right next to Abe Lincoln's.

THE OBAMA IDENTITY mocks all sides in this hilarious takedown of the political world and its incompetent, coddling media. will run an excerpt from THE OBAMA IDENTITY on September 27.

Read Page Six. Watch the trailer here.

1979 Classic More Relevant Than Ever!

The Defining Voice in the Movement for Liberty
Foreword by Stephen Moore, The Wall Street Journal

More than thirty years ago, before conservative talk radio and Fox News, Robert Ringer was writing about the coming collapse of the U.S. economy and Washington's assault on personal freedom. Unfortunately, his warnings went unheeded, but his words proved to be prophetic. Today, many of his prophecies not only have come to pass, but are now accepted by millions of Americans as a normal way of life.

RESTORING THE AMERICAN DREAM: The Defining Voice in the Movement for Liberty is a follow-up to Robert Ringer's best-selling 1979 classic. As a New York Times #1 best-selling author, Ringer continues to expose unconstitutional government policies that destroy both our economy and our liberty. Topics include, among others, inflation, job-killing taxes, the trumped-up energy "crisis," draconian regulation, the sanctity of individual sovereignty, and, most important, what the reader can do to help restore the American dream.

RESTORING THE AMERICAN DREAM exposes the lie that the American dream is about government helping people fulfill their desires through redistribution-of-wealth programs and government-created rights. Ringer explains that the American dream our grandparents knew was about people who, for the first time in human history, realized that they were above government - that politicians are the employees of those who vote them into office, and not the other way around.

Robert Ringer's trademarks are his unique ability to explain complex issues in an easy-to-understand manner and the courage to approach controversial subjects from a moral viewpoint. For example, he defends capitalism not just on the grounds that it produces more wealth for the greatest number of people, but because it is inherently moral.

RESTORING THE AMERICAN DREAM highlights numerous ways in which minimization of government can be accomplished, including:

· All office holders, especially the president, should serve only one term.
· Most taxes should be phased out as swiftly as possible.
· Most government services and government employees should be gradually eliminated.
· The law of supply and demand should be allowed to operate freely.
· All redistribution-of-wealth functions of government should be phased out over a reasonable period of time.
· Consumer advocates, environmentalists, and other self-proclaimed protectors of the people should be held civilly and criminally liable for their actions.
· Most government property and businesses should be sold off.
· All victimless-crime laws should be repealed and all people imprisoned for violations of such "crimes" should immediately be granted full pardons.
· All laws that invade the privacy of individuals should be repealed, and no new laws that call for government intrusion into our lives should be enacted.

The foundational premise of the American dream is that liberty must be given a higher priority than all other objectives. The author explains that the American dream is not a collective experience. On the contrary, self-responsibility was, and is, an integral part of the American dream. In order to restore the American dream, Ringer explains that citizens must either draw the line and take back America from the politicians who control it, or they must be prepared to relinquish forever their remaining claims on liberty.

RESTORING THE AMERICAN DREAM is a rare book that has the power to fundamentally transform America from a socialist nation into the nation our founding fathers envisioned.

About the Author: Robert Ringer is a New York Times best-selling author, interviewer, and speaker. He is the publisher of the thought-provoking e-letter A Voice of Sanity in an Insane World, in which he shares his insights and analyses of today's most pressing problems from a free-market point of view. In addition, he hosts the highly acclaimed Liberty Education Interview Series, which features interviews with such top political, economic, and social leaders. The author of three New York Times bestsellers, Ringer has appeared on numerous national talk shows, including The Tonight Show, Today, Good Morning America, ABC News Nightline, and The Charlie Rose Show. In addition, he has been the subject of feature articles in Time, People, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Barron's, and The New York Times.

"With Washington growing bigger and bigger by the day and distancing itself further and further from our precious Constitution and founding principles, the timing could not be better for Robert Ringer's classic Restoring the American Dream. What a gift this important work is to a nation yearning for liberty and freedom." --Congresswoman Michele Bachmann

Pursuing Liberty By Cory Emberson & Rick Lindstrom

America Through the Eyes of the Newly Free
By Cory Emberson & Rick Lindstrom

"Pursuing Liberty is a book that reminds us of the wisdom of our founders, and inspires us through the stories of our newest patriots."
--Brian Sussman, KSFO, San Francisco radio host, and author of Climategate

Consider how much America has changed since WWII. Gone is the universal pride most Americans felt about their unique legacy, now given way to a bitterly divided country whose citizens seem more interested in mutual political combat than focusing on our shared American exceptionalism. The latest news about Arizona''s immigration law, enacted out of sheer desperation, is just one example of the battle that rages on American soil to protect our sovereignty; not to mention the recent news of Russian spies, the infiltration of Jihadist camps and the enemy within -- members of al Qaeda and the Taliban living right in our own neighborhoods waiting to attack.

Sometimes it takes a different perspective to bring matters into sharp focus -- as in the case of a new book called Pursuing Liberty, which is an intimate portrait of those who have confronted despotism and tyranny firsthand, escaped it, and lived to tell the tale. Pursuing Liberty is a chronicle of their personal experiences, reminding us of the value of liberty, and the ongoing need to defend it at all costs. Talk radio across America has been covering this topic regularly for years- - the stories of legal immigrants who escaped tyranny for America, only to see their nightmare past of repression spreading to the so-called "land of the free."

Through first-person narratives from our newest naturalized Americans, Pursuing Liberty showcases the courage required to abandon one's ancestral home to seek the unique freedoms found only in America, and the rare insights of those who gave up everything in their own quests for liberty. They offer rare glimpses into and recollections of life under repression and illustrate clearly that the knowledge of the true face of tyranny can be our armor against it happening in America.

Pursuing Liberty was written for all Americans - young or old, left, right, or center, this book opens our eyes to the unique American experience that far too many of us take for granted. It is a valuable read for every American, with the November elections fast approaching on the horizon; this book will move voters to make the right choice for the good of our country.

What is the cost of freedom? To those who have fled oppression and tyranny, it's worth everything. These are the inspiring true-life experiences of our newest patriots - all escaped their former homes risking it all just for the chance to live a free life in America. They've come from Cuba, Venezuela, the former USSR, Vietnam, and other countries to make their dreams of freedom a reality. To hear the voices of the new immigrants warning us not to make the same mistakes their countries made is a wake-up call for all American citizens.

"When I look at the aspirations of American Progressives, I see nothing new or forward-looking. Instead, I see the same ideas that formed the basis of the USSR, which eventually suffered a complete economic collapse," says Svetlana Kunin, an immigrant from the Soviet Union. Polish immigrant Agnieszka Bernstein talks about life in a communist nation "dominated by alcohol and hunting for stuff in the stores ... basic things."

Is the American dream of opportunity, freedom, and exceptionalism turning into a nightmare? Pursuing Liberty contrasts the reality of living under oppressive regimes with America's unique and irreplaceable legacy: freedoms that may be lost entirely if America continues its downward slide. Is it too late to stem the rising tide of overzealous government? These legal immigrants know the answer.

Kessler Bestseller Out in Paperback

The explosive New York Times bestseller that caused controversy within the U.S. Secret Service arrives in paperback.

Includes a new chapter revealing new details about the threats against President Obama and the secret task force
set up to protect him.

By Ronald Kessler

Secret Service agents act as human surveillance cameras and observe everything that goes on behind the scenes in the president's inner circle. New York Times bestselling author and award- winning reporter Ronald Kessler reveals what they have seen, providing startling, previously untold stories about presidents from John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, as well as about their families, Cabinet officers, and White House aides. In his new book, IN THE PRESIDENT'S SECRET SERVICE: BEHIND THE SCENES WITH AGENTS IN THE LINE OF FIRE AND THE PRESIDENTS THEY PROTECT (Three Rivers Press, on sale August 3, 2010), Kessler penetrated the wall of secrecy that surrounds the U.S. Secret Service for the first time and portrays the dangers that agents face, how they carry out their missions, how they are trained, how they spot and assess potential threats, and much more.

Ronald Kessler reveals in the new edition of IN THE PRESIDENT'S SECRET SERVICE:

· Threats against President Obama have became so disturbing that the FBI has established a Presidential Threat Task Force to gather, track, and evaluate assassination threats that might be related to domestic or international terrorism.
· Threats against Obama rose by as much as 400 percent compared with when President Bush was in office. At the same time, the Secret Service has been “spinelessly” acceding to requests by Obama administration officials for Secret Service protection in instances where there are no threats against them. As a result, 40 Obama administration officials and White House aides are under Secret Service protection, compared with 32 under George W. Bush. Kessler says that no one outside of the government has heard of most of them, but they have one thing in common: They enjoy being chauffeured free of charge by the Secret Service.
· The expansion in protection has occurred while the Secret Service is jeopardizing the president's safety by cutting corners because of understaffing.
· The new edition explains how Secret Service deficiencies led to the intrusion by Michaele and Tareq Salahi at the White House State Dinner. It recounts how Kessler obtained a scoop on the fact that the Secret Service, during its investigation of the incident, found that a third uninvited guest attended the dinner. Two hours after Kessler's story ran on, the Secret Service confirmed it.

In addition, IN THE PRESIDENT'S SECRET SERVICE discloses assassination attempts that have never before been revealed. Kessler shares insider accounts of past assaults that have put the Secret Service to the test, including a heroic gun battle that took down the would-be assassins of Harry S. Truman, the devastating day that John F. Kennedy was killed in Dallas, and the swift actions that saved Ronald Reagan after he was shot. Kessler also exposes how Secret Service management in recent years has betrayed its mission by cutting corners, risking the assassination of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and future presidential candidates.

Based on exclusive interviews with more than one hundred current and former Secret Service agents, IN THE PRESIDENT'S SECRET SERVICE also reveals:

· Because the Secret Service has been cutting corners since its absorption by the Homeland Security Department, when Vice President Joe Biden threw the first pitch at the first Baltimore Orioles game of the 2009 season, the Secret Service did not screen any of the more than forty thousand fans, stunning agents on his detail and the agency's Baltimore field office. Contrary to Biden's claims, he compromised the location of a secret underground bunker built to protect the vice president.
· When he was President George W. Bush's Treasury secretary, John Snow traveled to his hometown of Richmond almost every weekend and saw a woman agents believed was his mistress, incurring huge expenses for taxpayers because the Secret Service had to accompany him.
· Vice President Spiro Agnew, a champion of family values, had extramarital affairs while in office.
· George W. Bush's daughters, Barbara Bush and Jenna Bush Hager, gave their Secret Service details a hard time and would try to lose their agents.
· Based on a psychic's vision that a sniper would assassinate President George H. W. Bush when he arrived in Enid, Oklahoma, to give a speech, the Secret Service changed his motorcade route.
· To make the press think he came to work early, Jimmy Carter would walk into the Oval Office at 5 a.m., then nod off to sleep. Carter refused to allow the military aide with the nuclear football to stay near his home in Plains, Georgia, jeopardizing the nation's safety when he was staying there.
· Lyndon Johnson would order Secret Service agents to drive on crowded sidewalks so he could make an appointment on time. Johnson would urinate in front of the press corps, which included women reporters. He had a stable of women with whom he had sex at the White House and at his ranch.
· Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter Mary, who was guarded by the Secret Service along with her baby, demanded that the Secret Service shuttle her friends to restaurants. When her detail leader objected, she had the agent removed.
· At a Halloween party, Jenna Bush's now-husband, Henry Hager, became so inebriated that the Secret Service wound up taking him to Georgetown University Hospital. Another time, he became drunk with Jenna in a Georgetown bar and picked a fight with several other patrons. The Secret Service had to intervene to avoid a brawl.
· Because of objections by the wife of the secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, the Secret Service stopped performing checks on workers cleaning the Chertoffs' home, even though agents knew that many of the workers were illegal immigrants.
· In contrast to John McCain, Barack Obama - code-named Renegade - and Michelle Obama - code-named Renaissance - treat agents with consideration and respect. Contrary to Obama's repeated claims that he is giving up smoking, he has continued to smoke regularly.
· When Gary Hart was running for president and before his affair with Donna Rice was revealed, his friend Warren Beatty would arrange to have one or two stunning young models or actresses meet him at Beatty's house in Beverly Hills. As Secret Service agents watched through a fence, the women would remove their bikini tops and hop in an outdoor hot tub, then spend the evening with the married presidential candidate.
· Under pressure from presidential candidates or the White House, the Secret Service will shut down magnetometer screening for weapons at major events so as not to inconvenience stragglers when the president or a candidate is about to speak.
· While Secret Service agents are often heroic, the agency uses subterfuge to make them seem more so. When members of Congress and other VIPs visit the Secret Service training facility, the agency presents scenarios where agents respond to a threat. While the demonstration is billed as spontaneous, it is secretly rehearsed.
· In recent years, the Secret Service has equipped agents with outmoded firearms, so they could be outgunned. The service has driven away experienced agents through senseless transfer policies and reduced to almost nothing firearms requalification, physical training, and agent testing. Given such laxity, “It's a miracle we have not had a successful assassination,” a current agent says.

Since an assassination jeopardizes democracy itself, few agencies are as important to the United States as the Secret Service. Only Secret Service agents know the real story about our nation's leaders, and Ronald Kessler is the only journalist who has gained their trust. In importance to the country and in revelations about our nation's leaders, IN THE PRESIDENT'S SECRET SERVICE is unique.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Ronald Kessler is the New York Times bestselling author of eighteen nonfiction books, including The Terrorist Watch, Inside the White House, The CIA at War, and The Bureau. A former Washington Post and Wall Street Journal reporter, Kessler has won seventeen journalism awards.

The United States of Bankruptcy By Bill Glynn

20 Great Ways to Save the American Way of Life

Bill Glynn, venture capitalist, entrepreneur, author, and frequent guest of talk radio, has been warning Americans that we are in danger of losing our values, freedom and cherished way of life for many years via his blogs and talk radio shows across America. The culmination of all he has been saying is available now in this easy-to-understand guidebook every American must read: The United States of Bankruptcy: 20 Great Ways to Save the American Way of Life.

He warned us long before today, amidst all the crises America is facing, that the sovereignty of the United States would end up in the hands of foreign nations that hold our debt. He tells us now that America is socially, morally, politically, and financially bankrupt and asks us to start thinking for ourselves once again. He asks those of us who have become weary and leery of our politicians and so-called leaders:

Do you think politicians can actually manage our money?
Do you trust the motivations of your elected officials?
Do you think elections are nothing more than consumer advertising and branding?
Do you trust large corporations?
Do you trust Wall Street?
Do you trust the Chinese to control your future?
Do you feel your job is secure?
Do you think your money is safe?
Do you trust health insurance companies?

If you answered "no" to any or all of these questions, you are not alone. If you are looking for ideas to solve these problems within our country, you need The United States of Bankruptcy to take back America! This convenient guidebook offers 20 solutions to help save the American way of life. And it is a scathing verdict on how the American oligarchy and business leaders have squandered the finances of our nation and have dismantled the American Dream.

Over the past year, talk show hosts have quoted Bill: "If America were a company, the board of directors and management would be fired and probably even in jail!" Thomas Jefferson told us in 1816: "I sincerely believe ... that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale."

Woodrow Wilson's ominous words ring true today as he warned that we'd be ruled by the few, the rich and the powerful: "We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."

There are many books out there about the current administration and the damage it's done... The United States of Bankruptcy will stimulate the original true thinkers in the United States to do as our founding fathers once did and return to the core values that made America a great nation.

About the Author: Bill Glynn has been a venture capitalist and entrepreneur for 20 years and is also the author of Left on Red. He was ranked by Information Week as one of 15 top innovators globally. He is an insider in the film and music industry. The companies he has founded, helped build, and invested in have raised over $1 billion. Bill advises Fortune 1,000 companies' executives and speaks regularly across the United States regarding the global economy, reaching an audience of millions each month.

The Devil at My Doorstep By David Bego

The War Between a Family Business Owner and the SEIU

In May 2010, following a battle lasting over four years, Dave Bego, President of Executive Management Services, overcame incredible odds when he triumphed in a legal battle over the powerful and politically connected Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The incredible true story of Bego's "one man stand" against the two-million-member labor union and its boss Andy Stern (the man who would become President Obama's favorite ally and guest of the White House) is chronicled in his new book, The Devil at My Doorstep: Protecting Employee Rights in which Bego tells the story of the remarkable chain of events leading to the final showdown. This is an inspiring account of his fight to protect his employees and his life's work.

This is the story of a small business owner who grew his cleaning company from the ground up and succeeded by valuing quality, integrity, and respect for customers and employees as the core philosophies of his company. Eventually contracting with over 50 Fortune 500 companies, his business grew to over 5,000 workers in 36 states. He was indeed creating the American Dream for himself and his employees.

Then one day SEIU and Stern moved in to wield their "persuasion of power" to inflict unionization on EMS. Using everything from false accusations to financial power, Stern and the SEIU gained political and media support, practically ruining Bego's reputation, and costing him a million dollars in legal fees. Staying true to his values, Bego refused to back down, and almost three years later defeated Stern and the SEIU and succeeded in saving his company.

The Devil at My Doorstep delivers a shocking, incredible, account of freedom under fire, wherein Bego vividly demonstrates that the basic freedoms we assume are in place, including the right of a small business to operate without coercion, the protection of its employees' wages and personal information, and the right to vote in private, can be shaken to the core. Read more on the EMS Victory at NLRB against the SEIU.

This book is "A useful and compelling expose of what really happens in so-called union corporate campaigns," says Randel K. Johnson, Vice President, Labor, Immigration & Employee Benefits, and U.S. Chamber of Commerce. "While the union leadership tries to sell these campaigns as necessary because of some alleged imbalance in our nation's labor laws, the reality is that these campaigns are really about forcing employers, through a variety of often unseemly tactics, to recognize the unions regardless of the desire of the employees. David Bego's experience as documented in this review highlights that truth in stark reality."

David Bego's "truer than fiction" journey demonstrates how he was able to:

* Hold on to his core values and stand up for what he believed in.
* Fight and win against powerful and politically connected opponents.
* Develop and implement a strategy to overcome incredible odds.
* Start, operate and grow a business and cultivate good business relations.
* Find a place for a small business in a saturated marketplace characterized by large corporations.

The Devil at My Doorstep serves as an example for those individuals and small-to-mid-size business owners who believe in employee privacy rights and the American Dream, showing them that the underdog can indeed prevail.

Watch David Bego on Fox Business Network's Varney & Co.

About David Bego: President and CEO of Executive Management Services, Inc. (EMS), David Bego waged war with Andy Stern and the SEIU for the past four years, under attack from Stern and his union thugs, while protecting his employees against loss of their freedom to vote in "secret ballot" elections with no threat of repercussion from those who may disagree with their choice. Despite damage to his reputation and EMS's, Bego has managed thus far to survive the SEIU onslaught and emerge with integrity intact. Truly the voice of the opposition to the pending Employees Free Choice Act, Bego's case has received wide media coverage on TV and radio and he has met with many congressional leaders. [more...]

A Simple Solution to Healthcare Reform

By Dr. Elaina George

I have been in medical practice for over 12 years. Over the past several months I have written extensively about both the intended and the unintended consequences of healthcare reform from a physician's perspective and have appeared on numerous radio shows talking about the problems of health care reform. I have seen the breakdown and particularly the erosion of the doctor patient relationship, which is the fundamental foundation of medicine. As a patient advocate, I felt compelled to educate and inform people about what to expect over the coming months and years regarding their health care choices.

I started my journey as an idealistic optimist who believed that my voice could be heard. That belief took me to Washington to meet with my Congressmen. It was a hard lesson to learn that the political status quo and the power of special interests were more important than doing what was best for patients. It has been equally frustrating to listen to pundits who know absolutely nothing about what it takes to keep a practice open and to provide excellent care to patients. It remains a mystery to me how the opinions of those who have no idea what its like to make payroll or pay for malpractice insurance while fighting increasingly more losing battles with insurance companies and the government for the chance to treat his or her patient as they were trained have been allowed to dictate the conversation about healthcare reform. I have come full circle. I decided that I can either complain about the problem or do something to be part of the solution. This is something we each can decide to do.

My choice is to take back my power as a physician for myself and for my patients. In my opinion, it is the middleman that has led to the explosion in healthcare costs and has insinuated itself between me and my patient. I can no longer sit back and hope that the government will help me (The passing of the healthcare reform bill made that plainly obvious that wasn't going to happen). You only need to look to the fact that the stocks for the pharmaceutical industry and the medical insurance industry went up after the bill passed.

My solution is the creation of Best Price MD ( It is simply a consortium of healthcare providers - from physicians, specialists, surgeons, and dentists to integrative providers such as chiropractors and acupuncturists. All of our providers have one thing in common, that is their willingness to provide a discount on their services to those without insurance and those who do have insurance, but have high deductibles.

Daniel Ruddy's New Teddy Roosevelt Book

History of the
His Own Words, Selected and Arranged
By Daniel Ruddy
With a Foreword by Edmund Morris

In a unique project, Ruddy has carefully extracted Roosevelt's most relevant and telling comments - from letters to books to speeches - and organized them to form a full, colorful and highly opinionated history of the United States up to 1919, the year TR died.

Theodore Roosevelt is well remembered for his energetic personality, his leadership in the Progressive Movement, and his "cowboy" image. But he is best remembered for his words. Lifetimes have been spent speculating on what Roosevelt truly thought, and now scholar and historian Daniel Ruddy provides thought-provoking insight into just that.

THEODORE ROOSEVELT'S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES: His Own Words, Selected and Arranged by Daniel Ruddy is an assemblage that provides readers with a unique account of American history from 1776 to 1918. Roosevelt's ideas about the nation's past can be found sprinkled throughout his voluminous writings, but these "pearls of thought" (as one reviewer described them in 1888) have never before been collected.

Roosevelt, the historical observer, was a hanging judge who did not hesitate to opine on the leaders and events of our nation's past. His razor-sharp opinions cut to the core, capturing the essence of obscure and prominent historic figures alike: Thomas Paine was a "filthy little atheist;" Andrew Jackson "not more than half civilized;" John Tyler "a politician of monumental littleness;" Winfield Scott "a good general, but otherwise a wholly absurd and flatulent personage;" Millard Fillmore "a pompous old non-entity;" William McKinley had "no more backbone than a chocolate eclair;" William Howard Taft a "flubdub with a streak of the common and the second rate in him."

Roosevelt was not shy about stating his opinions of his contemporaries either. He felt that Andrew Carnegie and other Robber Barons were "singularly callous" to the sufferings of ordinary people, and that William Randolph Hearst "would aspire to play the part of some of the least worthy creatures" of the French Terror. After the ill-fated Progressive Party failed to propel TR into the White House in 1912, it became "the Free Soil Party of our day," and when Woodrow Wilson refused to immediately enter World War I, Roosevelt branded him the "heir of Jefferson and Buchanan."

Captivating and insightful towards this American life, Daniel Ruddy skillfully gathered a great collection of writing to paint a clearer portrait of a man and his impressions of our nation's history. Watch Daniel on Fox News Channel: Go Here Now.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Daniel Ruddy grew up on Long Island, New York where a childhood trip to Roosevelt's home, Sagamore Hill, in Oyster Bay, triggered a lifelong interest in TR. He is a marketing consultant for Fortune 500 companies, and he holds a Master's Degree in international relations from the London School of Economics. He is an avid researcher into U.S. history and the presidency. [more...]

'Islam Rising' Exposes Radical Islam in America

On May 1, 2010 Christian Action Network (CAN) and PRB Films will release a new documentary entitled, Islam Rising, a film that exposes the dangers of radical Islam to the Western world and features the internationally acclaimed Dutch politician, Geert Wilders. The film follows on the heels of CAN’s explosive documentary released last year, Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around U.S.

CALL SANDY NOW at 516-735-5468 or e-mail Sandy to schedule interviews with Martin Mawyer, the Director of "Islam Rising."

Mr. Wilders, who is currently running for Prime Minister in the Netherlands, lives under a constant death threat for producing his own film, Fitna. His film shows how radical Islamists are simply following the dictates of the Quran in their attempt at world domination through violence, murder and infiltration. As a special feature of Islam Rising, Mr. Wilders’ own controversial film, Fitna, is included.

Geert Wilders is currently on trial in The Netherlands for his alleged "hate speech" against Islam and has almost single-handedly brought global attention to the Islamic infiltration and dominance of Europe.

Though CAN does not endorse all the views of Mr. Wilders made in the film, the Dutch parliamentarian warns that if the growing Islamic takeover of Europe is not stopped, the West could be faced with a "thousand years of darkness."

As part of its promotion for Islam Rising, CAN will be displaying billboards along major interstates of the east coast. Six billboards will be on display, starting in South Carolina, by the middle of April.

Islam Rising will debut in Washington, D.C. on May 1 in the Rayburn House Office Building. More than 500 people are expected to be in attendance.

The New English Review raves: "We hope that Islam Rising receives a wide public viewing especially by Members of Congress. It is a testimony that one man can make a difference."

Martin Mawyer, president of CAN, says, "Islam Rising is a daring film. It's a dangerous film. It's an attempt to show Americans how Europe is being be brought to its knees by radical Islamists and how they are making inroads into the United States."

The documentary feature includes dramatic film footage, shocking photos and a special warning by Geert Wilders, himself. Go here for more information.
