Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here are the facts:

The United States has released 425 terrorists from Guantánamo, at least 50 of whom have returned to the battlefield to fight our troops.

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton both say they're fiscally responsible. But each has called for $1 trillion in tax increases over the next ten years—and dressed them up as tax cuts!

Mainstream Media has been given marching orders from the Society of Professional Journalists: never refer to "Islamic terrorists" or "Muslim terrorists." And they are obeying! Whenever our brave agents disrupt a terror plot, The media dismisses the culprits as a gang of idiots—lulling us into a false sense of security.

If the liberals win the 2008 election, they will cripple talk radio—forcing stations to give equal time to left-wing programs, and insisting that liberals play a key role in station management.

Up to a quarter of all state pension funds in the United States are invested in companies that are helping Iran, Syria, North Korea, or the Sudan—for a total of nearly $200 billion.

The Do-Nothing Congress is still doing nothing—and the worst offenders are the presidential candidates Clinton, Obama, and McCain, who never show up for their day jobs as senators . . . except to pick up their $165,000 paycheck!

Is it any wonder that Americans feel fleeced at every turn?

As more and more critical problems develop that need national attention, the White House and Congress appear to be AWOL.

Who's calling the shots instead?

Big business, big government, big labor, and big lobbyists. And their self-serving agendas are doing nothing to help the ever-increasing number of American people who are losing their homes, paying credit card interest rates higher than 25 percent, and finding their jobs increasingly outsourced to foreign countries.

In this hard-hitting call to arms, Dick Morris and Eileen McGann reveal the hundreds of ways American tax-payers are routinely fleeced—by our own government; by foreign countries like Dubai that are gobbling up American interests and spending millions to influence government decisions and American public opinion; by Washington lobbying firms that are pushing the agendas of corrupt foreign dictators on Capitol Hill; and by hedge-fund billionaires collecting huge tax breaks courtesy of the IRS.

With their characteristic blend of sharp analysis and insider insight, Morris and McGann call offenders of all kinds on the carpet—and offer practical agendas we all can follow to help turn the tide.

Book News Annotation:

Morris, a former political consultant to Bill Clinton who is often credited with prime responsibility for the President's rightward "triangulations," together with his frequent collaborator McGann, continue the polemical exercise they began in 2007's Outrage. They begin with an attack on Barack Obama as a creature of the "far left" and go on to attack the "liberal media" for downplaying terrorism, the Democratic Congress for continuing the "do-nothing" ways of their Republican predecessors, pension funds for investing in companies that do business with Iran, lobbyists for foreign governments, credit card company abuse, the release of prisoners from Guantanamo who go on to take up arms again, teachers' unions for misleading their members into investing in high-cost annuity policies, subprime loan issuers, the contractor Halliburton, Chinese toys with toxic materials, and various other issues.

Audrey Starkey, September 10, 2008 (view all comments by Audrey Starkey)
Morris has written a book that gives the Americans something to think about before you punch that ballot in November.

Although he does touch on what life under an Obama administration would be like, he also hits on present abuse of power in the Bush administration.

I found the format of the book helpful. Each chapter is clearly a subject in and of itself. In each chapter, Morris explains the subject, then gives specific examples of where the political leaders have gone wrong. There are boxes separate in each couple of pages that highlight the most important points he is making. The end of the book have hundreds of references a reader could check to see if what he is writing is true.

This book is NOT just about Obama as others have suggested. Morris has mentioned how Halliburten Corporation is taking advantage of OUR money by overcharging millions of dollars, demanding their employees are housed in a 5 star hotel in Iraq, and even charging the government 100. for each 15 pounds of laundry being done. Once chapter discusses how a known terriost was captured, kept in Cuba, then released because he used a false name, only to write letters and laugh at us while he began killing American soldiers. It opens your eyes to the TRUTH of many subjects, and how our tax dollars are being spent.

I found the book fascinating, and gave me a point of reference of the issues, including illegal immagration, health care, social security, etc, and how Obama, Clinton, Bush and McCain have voted in the past. He mentions that all three - Clinton, Obama and McCain left their PAID JOBS in the senate to run for office, and never gets a cent docked from their pay!. I think I want that job!!

If the reader can look at this book as a means to begin to question what canidates stand for, and use it as a starting point to truly study the policies, then maybe the right person will be put into office (if that is even possible in the selection this year).

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is open and would like to read the proof of various subjects that will be discussed during the debates to come.
