Putin on the March By Doug Schoen

The Russian President's Unchecked Global Advance

By Douglas E. Schoen

In his 2016 book, Putin’s Master Plan, Doug Schoen warned of the Russian president’s grand vision to expand his country’s influence around the world, especially in Eastern Europe, while destabilizing the Western alliance and delegitimizing the very principles of free societies - and especially the political model of democracy’s exemplar, the United States. Now, in his follow-up, Putin on the March, Schoen tells us Vladimir Putin is winning. Schoen brings the story up to date, warning that Putin’s mission is no abstraction but rather an active, ongoing campaign, and one that the Russian president has pursued with far more successes than setbacks. And Schoen warns again that the U.S. continues to lack a coherent plan for combating Russian aggression, political intrigue - including the cyberwarfare that has upended American politics - and the communications and propaganda offensive that seems continually to keep the Western democracies off balance.

In Putin on the March, you’ll learn about:

·     Russia’s ongoing aggression and its petro-politics;
·     The forming of the new Russian empire;
·     Russia’s backroom dealings;
·     Espionage: spies, leaks and cyberwarfare; and
·     How we can fight back, countering Russian aggression, with closer allies, clearer goals and empowering cyber-counterintelligence

In Putin on the March, Doug Schoen examines Russian moves across a range of geopolitical areas, including Moscow’s sustained menacing of its Eastern European neighbors, especially Ukraine, and analyzes Russia’s current posture regarding energy markets, the diplomatic situation, espionage and cyberwarfare, and Moscow-Washington relations. This follow-up reveals that Schoen’s previous warnings have been borne out. Under Putin’s leadership, Russia is achieving success in the three key areas in which it needs to prevail: foreign policy; control of Russian internal politics; and keeping the U.S. confused, demoralized, and even destabilized. Those who dismiss Putin’s behavior as unsustainable or reckless overlook the fundamental truth: he is getting away with it, and the more he gets away with, and the longer he does, the stronger he becomes - especially as the Western democracies grow more fractured both from their own internal problems and from lack of consensus on how to respond.

About the Author: Democratic Strategist, Fox News analyst and best-selling author, Doug Schoen, has been one of the most influential Democratic campaign consultants for over thirty years. Doug has advised President Bill Clinton, numerous governors and senators as well as NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The False Promise of Big Government By Patrick M. Garry

By Patrick M. Garry

It’s time to change the debate by debunking progressives’ favorite myth about big government

Patrick M. Garry, a law professor and political commentator, explodes this widely accepted myth in his powerful new book, The False Promise of Big Government: How Washington Helps the Rich and Hurts the Poor.

The federal debt recently topped $20 trillion. So much for “the era of big government is over,” a statement famously made by a Democratic president two decades ago. What happened? Why has the crusade against big government failed? Because the advocates of limited government are making the wrong arguments.

Professor Garry shows why, and also reveals the right argument against big government. Progressives have created a massive and intrusive federal government by repeating this mantra: big government is necessary to help the “little guy” - the poor, working class, and middle class. There’s only one problem with progressives’ favorite claim: IT’S A MYTH!

The False Promise of Big Government reveals:

·     How big government hurts the very people it purports to help;
·     How big government is a tool of the elite, helping the rich, powerful, and politically connected;
·     Why America’s four richest counties are all suburbs of Washington, D.C.;
·     How the poor have been trapped in poverty by a federal War on Poverty that has cost THREE TIMES more than all of America's military wars combined
·     Why the two most common arguments against big government - about costs and constitutionality - don’t work;
·     Why big business loves big government and welcomes more federal regulations;
·     How big federal programs like Dodd-Frank and Obamacare spawn industry monopolization that hurts the average person; and
·     Why proponents of limited government aren’t heartless or mean-spirited - in fact, they’re trying to free the poor and vulnerable from government policies that harm them and hold them back.

In just 100 pages, The False Promise of Big Government lays out everything you need to know about why big government fails and how to overcome it at last.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Patrick M. Garry, JD, PhD, is professor of law at the University of South Dakota. He is the award-winning author of several books, including Conservatism Redefined. Garry writes frequently for both popular and scholarly publications and has delivered hundreds of lectures across the country. He has been invited to testify before Congress several times.

The Armageddon File By Stephen Coonts

By Stephen Coonts

Was the last election stolen? And if so, who did the stealing... and why? The answer lies in The Armageddon File - the latest book by national bestselling author, master thriller writer Stephen Coonts.

Stephen’s blockbuster bestsellers include The Flight of the Intruder and Libertys Last Stand. Now, at the top of his game in The Armageddon File, a story ripped from the nation’s headlines, Stephen takes a fresh look at the American presidential election system.

In Armageddon, CIA Director Jake Grafton and CIA Agent Tommy Carmellini race to discover who might have attempted - or succeeded - to steal the last presidential election. A string of dead bodies, rigged voting machines, and a conspiracy that seems to lead in divergent directions - from the uppermost reaches of the FBI to foreign powers, from high finance to organized crime - are only part of this gripping story of cross and double-cross that leads to a shattering climax.

Life imitates art and Coonts knows how to tell a story all about the real Electoral system and its profound effects; he knows that voter fraud is alive and well in America; and that courthouse politics has always been played for blood and money in America and political machines ruled some states for generations. In the old days politicians stayed in power by buying votes with whiskey, money, jobs, and illegal access to public assistance. Political machines stuffed ballot boxes in the big cities.

In America today, the cultural and political divide can generally be defined as a split between rural and urban America. In 2016 the press reported that in thirty-seven percent of the precincts in Detroit there were more ballots cast than there were registered voters. Ballot box stuffing, allowing illegal aliens to vote, and the failure to require a photo ID before allowing someone to vote no doubt all played a part. Still, despite the efforts of the Detroit Democrats, and to their horror, Michigan went for the Republican candidate, Donald Trump. What if the efforts of the Detroit Democrats had given the state to Hillary Clinton by one vote?

Coonts says the American election system is a patchwork antique that desperately needs an overhaul, which will probably have to come from the federal level. Requiring photo IDs to register and to vote is a cheap and easy fix that would do much to cure some of the system’s ills. However, politicians who think they benefit from crooked elections have resisted this change with all their might in legislative bodies and federal courts, waving the bloody flag of racial discrimination.

A former naval aviator and Vietnam War combat veteran, he is the author of The Flight of the Intruder, The Assassin, The Disciple, Libertys Last Stand, and sixteen national bestsellers.

Fatwa: Hunted in America by Pamela Geller

In her newly announced but already bestselling book, Fatwa: Hunted in America, the woman known as "the Joan of Arc of the counter-Jihad movement," Pamela Geller, tells the story of how she became one of the world’s foremost activists for freedom of speech and equality of rights for all.

In Fatwa you’ll learn:

·     how Geller fought the battle to defeat the sinister Ground Zero Mosque project;
·     about the ISIS jihad attack at Geller’s Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas;
·     about the fatwa on her head and plot to behead her - she is a free person who set out to defend freedom and ended up with a death threat which requires security at all times;
·     about how freedom of speech is under severe attack in the U.S. and all over the Western world;
·     how the political and media elites are forcing us to accept Sharia blasphemy restrictions;
·     ...and much, much more – including the relentless vilification from the mainstream media hell-bent on defaming and destroying everyone who stands for freedom against jihad terror and Sharia oppression.

Her critics have called her “the most dangerous woman in America,” “far-right hate queen,” and “the anti-Muslim movement’s most visible and flamboyant figurehead.” Her admirers say she is “the Joan of Arc of the counter-jihad movement,” “one of the top world experts in radical Islam and Sharia law and Islamic supremacism,” and “a wonderful fighter for liberty.”

Pamela Geller writes: “Any lover of freedom would have been tarred the same way I was, and many have been. I am but a proxy in this terrible long war; what has happened to me is what happens, in small and large ways, to every American who stands for freedom.”

Yet – as shown in Fatwa – she has prevailed. Without Pamela Geller, countless numbers of indefatigable fighters for freedom would have been cowed and intimidated into silence by an increasingly violent and authoritarian Left.

Fatwa: Hunted in America by Pamela Geller is now available for pre-order at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The book will be published on November 1, 2017 in hardcover and e-book formats by Dangerous Books, the publishing arm of MILO, Inc. Fatwa is the second book published by Dangerous Books, following the New York Times bestselling DANGEROUS by MILO. Fatwa will include a foreword by Dutch politician and tireless freedom fighter Geert Wilders.

About the Author: Pamela Geller is the founder, editor and publisher of The Geller Report and President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA). She is the author of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America, with Robert Spencer and Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance. She is also a regular columnist for Breitbart, American Thinker, WND and other publications. Geller’s articles and op-eds have been published in Time Magazine, the Guardian, Commentary Magazine, Fox News, The Washington Times, The Hill, Human Events, Jerusalem Post, Pajamas Media, and Israel National News.

The Left in the University By David Horowitz

The Black Book of the American Left - Volume VIII
The Left in the University
By David Horowitz

New York Times best-selling author David Horowitz's new book is The Left in the University, volume 8 of The Black Book of the American Left, a multi-volume collection of David Horowitz's conservative writings that will, when completed, be the most ambitious effort ever undertaken to define the Left and its agenda.
The corruption of American higher education has been in the news a lot in the last few years. “Snowflakes” and “safe spaces,” crowds of thugs shutting down conservative speakers, craven administrators caving in to demands of activist students and faculty have become increasingly common since the rise of Donald Trump sparked a “resistance” movement. Even progressives who have run afoul of campus terrorists are writing books about free speech now that their revolutionary children have started devouring their own.

In The Left in the University, you will learn about:

·     the left’s takeover of universities across America;
·     how far our campuses have descended into preposterous political correctness;
·     how sixties radicals began the redefinition of academic work from a search for truth according to professional norms, to a political activism that in the name of “relevance” and “social justice” shaped research and teaching to confirm leftist ideology and discredit whatever alternatives students might believe;
·     how “studies” like Post-Colonial Studies and Social Justice Studies proliferated to promote “narrowly one-sided political agendas,” and create “institutional settings for political indoctrination” and the “exposition and development of radical theory, and education and training of a radical cadre and the recruitment of students to radical causes;” and
·     radical intimidators and campus criminals, such as Antifa thugs, who regularly assault property, persons and reputations” with charges of racism, sexism, or even rape. They believe “If the ideas are correct, it’s okay to silence anyone who disagrees.”

David Horowitz, in his essays, frequently makes an important point: it’s not just the ideological prejudices of this or that faculty member, but a whole institutional, professional, and administrative apparatus that has made possible today’s overwhelmingly leftist and progressive university. What he has been warning about in his books and speeches for more than thirty years - the ideological hijacking of the university and the betrayal of its traditional mission - has finally grabbed the national spotlight. The essays in The Left in the University are indispensable for anyone who wants to understand how we got to this pass.

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 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.

Seablindness By Seth Cropsey

How Political Neglect is Choking American Seapower
By Seth Cropsey

“A finely researched combination of strategy, current events, and action-packed scenarios.”
--Former Senator Joseph I. Lieberman

Has the U.S. Navy reached its breaking point? In Seablindness: How Political Neglect is Choking American Seapower and What to Do About It, Fmr. Deputy Undersecretary of the U.S. Navy Seth Cropsey exposes how years of underfunding has left our nation’s most strategic arm of defense - American naval power - smaller today than any point since before World War I.

At the same time, our adversaries are modernizing their naval forces and, increasingly, testing our will to defend the open seas. Drawing on historic conflicts as reference points, Cropsey creates strikingly realistic scenarios in which rival powers like China, Russia, Iran and North Korea challenge our naval supremacy. The results will alarm anyone who recognizes America’s moral imperative to defend itself to preserve world peace and security in an era of emerging and multiplying global threats.

“Seablindness” is an old term to describe a maritime nation’s forgetfulness of the oceans’ role in its prosperity and security. The U.S. is losing the understanding that seapower is essential for protecting our commerce and preventing overseas conflicts from reaching our shores. The U.S. is the world’s most powerful supporter of the international order. If, because of defense budget cuts, the growth of adversary forces, the international order is overturned, our shipping, our ability to communicate with allies, and our position as a great power will be at risk.

In Seablindness, you’ll learn:

·     How the international order that the U.S. has supported since the end of World War II is threatened today by:
·     China’s actions in the international waters of the South and East China Seas;
·     the Russian navy’s forcible return to the Black Sea and its growing presence
                        in the Eastern Mediterranean;
·     its threats to NATO member states along the Baltic Sea; and
·     Iran’s threats to shipping in the Strait of Hormuz, and the virtual certainty that
                        Iranian naval presence will migrate into the Red Sea. 
·     Why U.S. seapower has been shrinking since the end of the Cold War and how President Obama’s administration reduced defense spending by hundreds of billions of dollars.
·     How the defense budget may still be asked to give up hundreds of billions of dollars if Congress and the president cannot avoid sequestration.
·     How an under-resourced and over-stretched fleet is experiencing collisions at sea.
·     How budget cuts affect all of U.S. seapower and the threats that U.S. seapower faces.
·     That to deter a potential enemy, U.S. seapower must change its focus from attacking land targets to commanding the seas nearest to a potential adversary.
·     How the far left of the Democratic Party believe we should substantially reduce our global engagement; yet our potential adversaries are at or nearby the world’s chokepoints. If we cannot assure the freedom of these chokepoints, our ability to conduct commerce and to communicate with allies will be at great risk.

American seapower has not been as small as it is today since before World War I. Unless reversed, it will continue its decline into the indefinite future as politicians ignore the widening gulf between the cost of modernizing and expanding American seapower, and the resources devoted to this most strategic arm of the nation's defense.

Seablindness explains the dilemma. It looks at the consequences of neglect including global scenarios set in the immediate future, the views of America's most knowledgeable military officers, the anxious reactions of U.S. allies, and hard facts to show how a lack of political will is dismantling the nation's global reach and with it, our position as the world's great power.

About the Author: Seth Cropsey served as deputy Undersecretary of the U.S. Navy in the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush. He was an officer in the U.S. Naval Reserve from 1985 to 2004. Cropsey is a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C. and director of Hudson's Center for American Seapower.

Rogue Spooks By Dick Morris

The Intelligence War on Donald Trump
By Dick Morris

A clandestine war is being waged against the Trump administration by rogue elements of the intelligence community, with the collusion of the media and liberal establishment. It amounts to an intelligence coup against the Trump presidency. In ROGUE SPOOKS: The Intelligence War on Donald Trump, bestselling author Dick Morris uncovers the facts behind allegations of foreign meddling in the 2016 presidential election. 

This groundbreaking expose will leave readers questioning the motives of U.S. Intelligence agencies, leftover partisans within our government, and members of the mainstream press.

Donald Trump's first 100 days in office were roiled by allegations of treasonous contacts between his campaign team and the Kremlin to rig the election. These outrageous charges first surfaced in the notorious “Trump Dossier,” an unverified document of suspect provenance, full of wild and salacious accusations.

This dossier—filled with little more than gossip, rumor, and innuendo––was compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence operative who teamed up with the FBI and anti-Trump partisans. Hillary Clinton supporters paid for Steele’s work.

When no news media would publish the unverified dossier, the ex-spook enlisted the help of a former UK ambassador to Russia, who arranged in turn for a former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State to get the document to Senator John McCain, in the hope that he would then bring it to FBI Director James Comey’s attention. McCain did just that.

Comey himself played a critical role in the dossier ultimately going public, giving a confidential summary to President Obama and Congressional leaders. It was immediately leaked by rogue spooks in order to demean, destabilize, and destroy Donald Trump’s nascent presidency.

The dossier and this mythical intelligence are the basis for the phony claims about a Russia/Trump collusion to steal the election. No proof was found. No substantiation uncovered. Even Comey told Trump he was not under investigation for the Russian meddling charges. But that didn’t end the leaks or the allegations. Working in concert with liberal news outlets, these rogue spooks have formed a new intel/media complex that threatens our democracy. ROGUE SPOOKS will reveal how it works.

The many questions Dick Morris answers in ROGUE SPOOKS:
·     Was Russia the only nation meddling in the presidential election, or were the Brits at it too?
·     Are there still Obama moles burrowed into the FBI, CIA and the White House, sabotaging the Trump administration?
·     Did the FBI offer to pay the author of the infamous “Trump Dossier” $50,000 of taxpayer money to verify the dossier’s allegations, while he was also being paid by Clinton supporters?
·     What are the likely next moves of the leaders of the coup, and how can Trump defeat them?

In ROGUE SPOOKS, readers will be shocked to learn the truth about the false accusations against President Trump in the flawed dossier. They’ll be interested to know how leaks to the media fueled the phony scandal, and how intelligence agencies will try to use the newly appointed special prosecutor to oust President Trump.  They will also learn what we can do—specifically—to stop them.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Dick Morris has authored nineteen books, including thirteen New York Times bestsellers. Morris served as Bill Clinton’s chief political consultant for twenty years, and is a regular political commentator on the Internet and Facebook.

"America First Rally" Announcement

America’s largest National Security Grassroots Organization Members Will Show their Support for Common Sense National Defense

ACT for America announces a nationwide series of "America First” rallies to be held in cities across America on Saturday, September 9, 2017. These events will be held in memory of those who were lost in the worst terrorist attack targeting American civilians in our history, and to promote our agenda of common sense "America First" security policies proposed by President Trump, which prioritize real protection over political correctness, and celebrate American exceptionalism.

“Our nation made a vow after 9/11/2001 to "Never Forget," but remembrance, while a necessary debt, is not a sufficient one. We as Americans must also raise our voices when our nation remains vulnerable to recurring threats,” says Brigitte Gabriel, founder of ACT for America. These rallies will call for support of President Trump’s common-sense America First security policies and those aligned with it. These include:
  • To secure our borders from threats to our safety;
  • To defeat ISIS, Al Qaeda, and affiliates;
  • To designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization;
  • To ensure proper and effective vetting of refugees for the protection of all Americans; and
  • To respect law and order, our police, our military and those who put their lives on the line for us each day.
Rallies will be held in cities across America, with further details available at actforamerica.org/america. ACT for America is the largest national security organization in America, made up of some 750,000 citizens who have come together to demand that America put the safety of her own citizens first.

America in the Age of Trump By Doug Schoen

America in the Age of Trump
Opportunities and Oppositions in an Unsettled World

By Doug Schoen & Jessica Tarlov

America in the Age of Trump by Doug Schoen and Jessica Tarlov is a bracing, essential look at the failure of a great nation to meet the needs of its people and the challenges of the age—and the resulting collapse of public trust in government, as well as a pervasive crisis of national values, from broken families to a loss of faith in the American idea itself.

This crisis of values occurs just as the country faces an unprecedented array of fiscal, economic, social, and national-security challenges—out of control federal spending, frighteningly large deficits, massive gaps of income and opportunity, cultural division, and a dangerous world in which American power seems increasingly incidental.

In America in the Age of Trump, Doug Schoen and Jessica Tarlov offer a definitive and unique assessment of a nation in turmoil, looking beneath well-known problems to identify underlying yet poorly understood causes. Readers will confront the crises, one by one: of trust, values, and governance; of education, economic opportunity, and fiscal solvency; of national security, domestic tranquility, and race relations.

In America in the Age of Trump, Doug addresses:
  • How Trump can be more bipartisan;
  • Clear plans to fix health care;
  • Plans to fix the budget and entitlements;
  • How to restore confidence in the American system; and
  • How to revitalize defense and bring the country back together.

America in the Age of Trump gathers in one place a clear and comprehensive evaluation of the fundamental issues confronting the American future while offering bold, fresh approaches to meeting these challenges. Other books have described the specter of American decline, but none has been so comprehensive in its diagnosis or forward-looking—and non-ideological—in its remedies, explaining how we might yet overcome national self-doubt to reclaim our traditional optimism, reassert our place in the world, and secure a prosperous future for our citizens.

His political clients include New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and Indiana governor Evan Bayh, and his corporate clients include AOL Time Warner, Procter & Gamble, and AT&T.
