Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.

By Sharyl Attkisson

Seasoned CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson reveals how she has been electronically surveilled while digging deep into the Obama Administration and its scandals, and offers an incisive critique of her industry and the shrinking role of investigative journalism in today’s media.

Americans are at the mercy of powerful figures in business and government who are virtually unaccountable. The Obama Administration in particular has broken new ground in its monitoring of journalists, intimidation and harassment of opposition groups, and surveillance of private citizens.

Sharyl Attkisson has been a journalist for more than thirty years. During that time she has exposed scandals and covered controversies under both Republican and Democratic administrations. She has also seen the opponents of transparency go to ever greater lengths to discourage and obstruct legitimate reporting.

Attkisson herself has been subjected to “opposition research” efforts and spin campaigns. These tactics increased their intensity as she relentlessly pursued stories that the Obama Administration dismissed.

Stonewalled is the story of how her news reports were met with a barrage of PR warfare tactics, including online criticism, as well as emails and phone calls up the network chain of command in an effort to intimidate and discourage the next story.

In Stonewalled, Attkisson recounts her personal tale, setting it against the larger story of the decline of investigative journalism and unbiased truth telling in America today.

American Exceptionalism: An Experiment in History

By Charles Murray

The phrase “American exceptionalism” is used in many ways and for many purposes, but its original meaning involved a statement of fact: for the first century after the Constitution went into effect, European observers and Americans alike saw the United States as exceptional, with political and civic cultures that had no counterparts anywhere else.

In American Exceptionalism: An Experiment in History, Charles Murray describes how America’s geography, ideology, politics, and daily life set the new nation apart from Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries.

He then discusses the ways that exceptionalism changed during America’s evolution over the course of the 20th century. Which changes are gains to be applauded? Which are losses to be mourned? Answering these questions is the essential first step in discovering what you want for America’s future.

No, They Can't: Why Government Fails-But Individuals Succeed

By John Stossel

John Stossel debunks the most revered of society’s sacred cows in this spirited New York Times bestseller: our belief that government can solve our problems. Stossel insists that we discard the myth of the “perfect” government—left or right—and retrain our brain to rethink our lives as independent individuals in light of such topics as:

HEALTH CARE • DEFENSE SPENDING

JOB CREATION • GUN CONTROL

PUBLIC EDUCATION • ENERGY

MINIMUM-WAGE LAWS • CLIMATE CHANGE

THE NATIONAL DEBT • POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

THE ASSAULT ON FOOD . . . and much more!

Upheaval

By Lou Dobbs

IF YOU DREAM OF A BETTER TOMORROW FOR AMERICA, FIRST FACE THE REALITIES OF TODAY.

Expanding on his candid “Chalk Talks” that inform the popular Lou Dobbs Tonight, the outspoken journalist points us toward the path to a revived America by forcing us to face facts: our nation has lost its moorings.

We are alienated from political parties that have ignored the middle class, and we are rightfully outraged when General Electric, the world’s third-largest multinational conglomerate, pays zero corporate taxes while the average American struggles.

We live in an era of bipartisan dysfunction, and of cronyism that would make 19th-century robber barons blush. Our business leaders are failing because CEOs know how tightly their success is linked to political contributions.

We can’t talk honestly about America’s enemies without fear of reprimand from the ACLU. Political correctness is shackling our common sense.

We reelected a president who presided over one of the worst economies in history, set our foreign policy adrift, and expressed contempt for the foundations of our free-enterprise system.

We have lost the values that once defined “the American way”—thrift, faith, efficiency, community, ingenuity—and have given in to big business, an insatiable government ruling class, and accept our trillion-dollar debt as the new normal.

And we are kept in the dark, thanks to the media that scarcely cover the issues that may not sell to a profitable demographic.

So what’s the good news? Every one of these problems is fixable, and can be addressed right now. InUpheaval, Lou Dobbs explains how to start thinking clearly again, how to engage in issues that matter, how to win arguments based on ideas and knowledge (knowledge really is power), and how to make a difference that’s imperative to our survival.

Upheaval arms readers with this information for fighting back, and does it as only Lou Dobbs can: with a style as frank and intelligent as it is witty and unfailingly honest.

The Freedom Answer Book: How the Government Is Taking Away Your Constitutional Freedoms

By Andrew Napolitano

The government is taking away basic freedoms granted under the Constitution. This helpful guide gives a clear vision of what your rights are and how you can protect them.

In order to truly understand the freedoms we have as people of the United States, we must fully comprehend our Constitution and the reasons why our Founding Fathers devised it.

If we don’t, we’ll never fully grasp the danger that lurks today of losing those freedoms to an ever-growing government and its lack of accountability.

As a nationally recognized expert on the U.S. Constitution, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano states in simple Q&A format the meanings behind our Constitution and exposes areas that are in jeopardy of unequivocal compromise.

He addresses hard-hitting questions such as, What are the limits to government power in a free society? Are your rights guaranteed? What forces have collaborated to destroy personal freedom? and many more.

Seeing, studying, and examining these issues will illuminate the unconstitutional realities of the government’s role today.

The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic

By Mark Levin

For a century, the statists have steadfastly constructed a federal Leviathan, distorting and evading our constitutional system in pursuit of an all-powerful, ubiquitous central government. The result is an ongoing and growing assault on individual liberty, state sovereignty, and the social compact. Levin argues that if we cherish our American heritage, it is time to embrace a constitutional revival.

The delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia and the delegates to each state’s ratification convention foresaw a time when—despite their best efforts to forestall it—the Federal government might breach the Constitution’s limits and begin oppressing the people. Agencies such as the IRS and EPA and programs such as ObamaCare demonstrate that the Framers’ fear was prescient.

Therefore, the Framers provided two methods for amending the Constitution. The second was intended for our current circumstances—empowering the states to bypass Congress and call a convention for the purpose of amending the Constitution. Levin argues that we, the people, can avoid a perilous outcome by seeking recourse, using the method called for in the Constitution itself.

The Framers adopted ten constitutional amendments, called the Bill of Rights, that would preserve individual rights and state authority. Levin lays forth eleven specific prescriptions for restoring our founding principles, ones that are consistent with the Framers’ design.

His proposals—such as term limits for members of Congress and Supreme Court justices and limits on federal taxing and spending—are pure common sense, ideas shared by many. They draw on the wisdom of the Founding Fathers—including James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and numerous lesser-known but crucially important men—in their content and in the method for applying them to the current state of the nation

Now is the time for the American people to take the first step toward reclaiming what belongs to them. The task is daunting, but it is imperative if we are to be truly free.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

Frank Capra’s timeless 1939 political fable. Political power-brokers decide that Jefferson Smith (James Stewart), an obscure scoutmaster in a small town, would be the perfect dupe to fill a vacant U.S. Senate chair, assuming he would be easily controlled by the senior state senator (Claude Rains).

Stewart’s wide-eyed wonderment at the glories of Washington feels like an act to his cynical secretary (Jean Arthur), who doesn’t believe for a minute this overgrown boy scout could be for real. But he is.

Congress didn’t appreciate the portrayal of their august body as being cynical, corrupt and absorbed by their own self-interest, but audiences sure did.
