Publisher Comments:

It's time to take back our country.

Now. It's that simple. It's that urgent.

So begins Dick Morris and Eileen McGann's latest and most important book. They say that we must act before President Barack Obama fully implements his radical political agenda. Because after Obama has won his war on prosperity and canceled the war on terror, it will be too late to regain our liberty or our security.

At a time when we needed a pragmatic centrist to lead us out of recession, we got a doctrinaire socialist who wants to use the crisis to put the government in charge of the economy and enact European socialism here in the United States.

Cars, banks--what's next? He will keep at it until Washington governs every major business in America and sets all our salaries.

It's a catastrophe.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann saw the meltdown coming. In their book Outrage, they called out the house of cards that was Fannie Mae. In Fleeced, they went after the credit card companies, the subprime mortgage lenders, and the hedge fund billionaires who conspired to wreck the economy--and Barack Obama, whose policies, they predicted last summer, would trigger a stock market crash.

Now, in Catastrophe, Morris and McGann take a hard look at America in free fall--and at how Obama is transforming a vulnerable America into a socialist state.

They tell the truth about Obama and his radical policies: He will destroy our health care system so that no one gets adequate care. He designed his bank rescue plan to pave the way for nation-alization of the banks and socialization of the economy. He firmly believes in government control of our major industries--he's already commandeered the banks and the automobile industry. He plans to reshape the political landscape to keep the left in power for decades by cooking the census, enfranchising illegal immigrants, muzzling talk radio, and coercing workers into unions. He is attacking those who fight terrorism while letting the terrorists go free. He gives aid to Hamas while Shariah Law threatens to take over America. He has repealed the Declaration of Independence and put us under a worldwide, European-dominated financial regulatory system.

But Obama is not working alone. Morris and McGann spell out how Congress is complicit: How Senator Chris Dodd and Congressman Charlie Rangel use special interests and special friends for their own enrichment and glorification. How Ted Kennedy Jr. is exploiting his father's health care power.

This is no time for apathy or alienation or hopelessness, Morris and McGann remind us. It's a time for action. And that action must begin now--before it's too late.

Synopsis:

The authors of the "New York Times"-bestselling "Fleeced" return with their no-holds-barred take on America's ills in 2009--from economic collapse to foreign infiltration to the missteps of the new administration.

Synopsis:

#1 New York Times Bestseller! In Catastrophe, Dick Morris and Eileen McGann—authors of the megabestsellers Fleeced and Outrage—take a hard look at America in free fall and at how Barack Obama is transforming a vulnerable U.S. into a socialist state. Their seventh consecutive New York Times bestseller, Catastrophe is a call to arms for every American skeptical of Big Business and politics as usual—and a must read for fans of Bill OReilly, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Bernie Goldberg, and Glenn Beck.

Synopsis:

Peter Schweizer's Throw Them All Out exploded onto the political scene in November 2011, shocking the nation and shaking Washington to its core. The book became an instant bestseller and#8212; but, more importantly, it also shone a necessary spotlight on legal loopholes that allowed members of Congress to get rich off insider information. Throw Them All Out fueled political will toand#160;stop these practices once and for all.and#160;Schweizer's powerfully argued bookand#160;broadcasts an essential message and#8212; public service must never be exploited for private profit and#8212; that will resonate throughout the 2012 election season, and beyond.

Synopsis:

THE BOOK WASHINGTON DOES NOT WANT YOU TO READ

How is it that politicians often enter office with relatively modest assets, but then, as investors, regularly beat the stock market and sometimes beat the most rapacious hedge funds? How did some members of Congress know to dump their stock holdings just in time to escape the effects of the 2008 financial meltdown? And how is it that billionaires and hedge fund managers often make well-timed investment decisions that anticipate events in Washington?

In this powerfully argued book, Peter Schweizer blows the lid off Washingtonandrsquo;s epidemic of andldquo;honest graft.andrdquo; He exposes a secret world where members of Congress insert earmarks into bills to improve their own real-estate holdings, and campaign contributors receive billions in federal grants. Nobody goes to jail. Throw Them All Out casts light into the darkest corners of the political system andmdash; and offers ways to clean house.

andquot;Throw Them All Out is filled with stories of petty theft and so-called 'honest graft' . . . Unsparingly bipartisan in [its] criticism of Washington . . . Mr. Schweizer has performed a valuable service to his country.andquot; andmdash; Washington Times

Synopsis:

With FLEECED, their June 2008 attack on Barack Obama, congressional corruption, liberal tax policies, teachers unions, and much more, political analysts Dick Morris and Eileen McGann scored their biggest bestseller ever-debuting at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list and riding high on the list for eight weeks and counting. Thanks to massive, continual exposure on The O′Reilly Factor, Hannity & Colmes, and the other Fox News programs-and the broad popularity of Dick′s syndicated column and exploding mailing list-FLEECED is on track to double the sales of their previous bestseller, OUTRAGE.

In 2009, Morris and McGann will return with their biggest book yet. In proven fashion, they′ll take on a barrage of hot-button pocketbook issues of immediate interest to the American people-from oil prices, real estate, and the faltering state of the economy to the ongoing corruption in Washington. But the big opportunity here is to get Dick and Eileen′s first take on the new administration-and, whoever wins the 2008 election, there′s bound to be plenty to talk about.

If Barack Obama wins, conservative readers will be hopping mad. Expect a full accounting of Obama′s all-important first 100 days in office-from his surely liberal cabinet appointments, to his handling of federal spending and new taxes, to the truth about his left-leaning policies.

If John McCain wins, conservative readers will be deeply suspicious. Will McCain stay true to the GOP′s small-government principles and conservative social agenda-or will his old "maverick" ways resurface, selling out the party and the country?

Either way, the new Morris/McGann book promises to be their biggest yet: the hottest straight-talk team in politics taking on the first new administration since 2000-and all the issues that readers all over America care about most.
