"Fast 500.000 verkaufte Exemplare in drei Tagen - die Enthüllung von Bushs ehemaligem Terrorberater Richard Clarke schlägt alle Rekorde" (SPIEGEL ONLINE) Binnen weniger Tage wurde "Against All Enemies" zu einem hochbrisanten Politikum, über das die Medien weltweit berichteten. Was macht die Schlagkraft dieses Buches aus? "Die Bush-Administration hat die Gelegenheit verpasst, Al Qaida zu zerschlagen", schreibt Richard A. Clarke. Sie habe alle Warnungen vor Al Qaida ignoriert, in einem unnötigen Krieg gegen Irak wertvolle Zeit verloren und dem Terrorismus Gelegenheit gegeben, sich neu zu organisieren. Wie kein anderer ist Clarke berechtigt, ein solches Urteil zu fällen. Zwei Jahrzehnte seines Lebens hat er dem Kampf gegen den Terrorismus gewidmet. Er war unter Clinton und Bush Cheforganisator der amerikanischen Anti-Terror-Politik und leitete in den entscheidenden Stunden nach den Anschlägenvom 11. September den Krisenstab im Weißen Haus. Sein Bericht, der sich auf die Entwicklungen vom ersten Golfkrieg bis zu "Bushs Vietnam" im Irak konzentriert, liest sich wie ein autobiografischer Thriller.

ABOUT THE BOOK “I can’t sit down long enough to write a book, and now I don’t have to ‘cause my buddy Mark Levin new book is out called Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America. I don’t have to write another book, at least not now.” - Rush Limbaugh Three years since the publication of his book, Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, best-selling author and conservative radio talk show host, Mark R. Levin published Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America. In the book’s introduction, Levin explains his reasoning for writing the book as a desire to answer certain questions regarding a utopian ideology he saw that “both attracts a free people and destroys them.” He noted that great leaders and thinkers, such as Ronald Reagan, Abraham Lincoln, Joseph Story, and the Founding Fathers, “feared” such an ideology and recognized its “threat” and “destructiveness.” His desire to pen Ameritopia spurred largely from the recent shift to incorporate said ideology of utopianism into the American life. Said shift added to an ever-widening gap between ideologies in American political parties. By the end of President George W. Bush’s second term in office, there was a great deal of outrage from the liberal left and portions of the conservative right regarding various policies and actions. During the 2008 election season, a relatively unknown African-American Senator from Illinois named Barack Hussein Obama burst onto the scene as a challenger to Democratic presidential candidate, New York Senator, and former First Lady, Hillary Clinton. The possibility of the first African-American to be elected president was touted as a “historical moment,” and many claimed to support him for just that reason -- to be part of history. Members of the audience fainted in more than one instance during Obama’s campaign. What happened next sent ripples of shock through the nation. Not only did Obama win the Democratic nomination, but with virtually no vetting, he won the election for President on the promise of “Hope and Change.” In 2009, Levin published his book Liberty and Tyranny, which compared the conservative and liberal viewpoints. Jeffrey Lord of The American Spectator claimed that the book was a “major political player” in the 2010 elections, which created sweeping changes in power across the country. A number of traditionally Democratic offices were defeated and won by Republicans. Lord also posited that Levin’s Ameritopia would make an “explosive impact in 2012” following its predecessor, Liberty and Tyranny. In his review of Ameritopia, Author David Limbaugh (brother to radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh) explained why the Utopian ideal is dangerous for America, perhaps stating better than Lord why the book could have an impact in the 2012 elections: EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK “[...] in Utopia, More creates the outline of a representative government structure. However, it is largely irrelevant, given the established dictates affecting minute details of daily life.” A Utopian society is created, with every conceivable problem addressed as those in charge strip away rights and emotional attachments from the people. Servants exist in this paradise and the kingdom itself is isolated from the rest of the world in order to protect itself from unwanted outside influences that could disrupt the ideal society. Families are routinely split up, because the state knows better than parents where children should live, what occupation they should pursue and how best, overall, to raise and educate them. Travel is controlled because papers (passports) are required by law in order for any travel, even inside the kingdom, to be permitted. the book to continue reading!

Through Three Miracles...Pulling the Sail in Together and Resetting "The Middle of the Political Spectrum" by Mary Ali America is more than two and a half centuries old now. Since she won her independence in 1776, the world witnessed her rapid growth as the largest democracy and a powerful country with a strong economy. However, since the last quarter of the twentieth century, there seemed to be a steady decline of its status both as a world power and a world economy. The twenty-first century greeted her with bigger problems, particularly the September 11, 2001 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York, the ongoing war against terrorism, and the collapse of the stock market in 2008. Hope seems to dim as years pass by. Is there still a way to save America? Mary E. Ali concludes the way to reform America by returning to the middle of the political spectrum-something that the Founding Fathers of America had determined when they made the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. Since the Progressive movement in the late 1890s through the 1920s, the American government is applying Marxist principles where it encroaches on the unalienable rights of people as a way to equalize the haves and the havenots, with consequences that shattered the basic unit of the country-the American family. The author believes that America should return to "In God We Trust" and a Republic, where big government returns the power to the people and the president is not the leader of the masses but the leader of the union of sovereign states. And then American, again, would be called "The Light Up On A Hill" for other nations. About the Author Mary E. Ali is a devout Christian, a faithful wife for more than twenty-five years, and a loving mother of two children. She received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education and Health from Slippery Rock University. She pursued another degree in physical therapy at the University of Pittsburgh and Doctor of Physical Therapy from Boston University. She was also certified as a specialist in geriatric physical therapy through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists. Another certification in Leadership Development was awarded to her by the Section on Health Policy & Administration (HPA) of the American Physical Therapy Association.

Reclaiming the Founding Fathers from America's Right Wing

Author: Michael Austin

Publisher: Prometheus Books

ISBN: 1616146710

Category: Political Science

Page: 253

View: 4404


This book examines dozens of books, articles, speeches, and radio broadcasts by such figures as Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Larry Schweikart, and David Barton to expose the deep historical flaws in their use of America's founding history. In contrast to their misleading method of citing proof texts to serve a narrow agenda, Austin allows the Founding Fathers to speak for themselves, situating all quotations in the proper historical context. What emerges is a true historical picture of men who often disagreed with one another on such crucial issues as federal power, judicial review, and the separation of church and state. As Austin shows, the real legacy of the Founding Fathers to us is a political process: a system of disagreement, debate, and compromise that has kept democracy vibrant in America for more than two hundred years. Austin’s carefully researched and rigorously argued book is essential reading for anyone seeking the accurate historical background to many of the today's hot-button political debates. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Mark R. Levin has made the case, in numerous bestselling books that the principles undergirding our society and governmental system are unraveling. In The Liberty Amendments, he turns to the founding fathers and the constitution itself for guidance in restoring the American republic. The delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention and the delegates to each state’s ratification convention foresaw a time when 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.

Der größte Teil des Buches wurde in den Jahren 1988/89 geschrieben, also dem letzten normalen DDR-Schuljahr. Der totale Zusammenbruch des Regimes war noch nicht absehbar.

Sein Schicksal wird ohne Nostalgie spannend dargestellt, und es wird dem Leser begreifbar, warum sich so viele Menschen gegen das System zur Wehr setzten und es zu Fall brachten. .... und was geschah danach? Wer früher die DDR-Schule besuchte, wird in diesem Buch an vieles erinnert, was er schon längst vergessen glaubte.

Sechs Kräfte, die unsere Welt verändern

Al Gore, der ehemalige Vizepräsident der USA, Friedensnobelpreisträger und Bestsellerautor, wagt in seinem neuen Buch einen Blick in die Zukunft. Er identifiziert diejenigen Kräfte, die unser Leben in den kommenden Jahrzehnten am stärksten verändern werden, und zeichnet so ein beeindruckend detailliertes Bild der Welt von morgen. Denn, so Gore, nur wem es gelingt, die Chancen und Risiken der Zukunft zu erkennen, kann sie auch gestalten. Wir leben in einer Zeit umwälzender Veränderungen. Aus der Vielzahl der Kräfte, die unsere Welt formen, greift Al Gore diejenigen heraus, die unsere Zukunft am radikalsten prägen werden: Neben der weiter zunehmenden Globalisierung der Wirtschaft sind das die Verschiebung der geopolitischen Machtverhältnisse, eine fehlgeleitete, allein auf Wachstum ausgerichtete Wirtschaftspolitik, der nicht nachhaltige Umgang mit unserer Umwelt und unseren Ressourcen sowie die Revolutionen in der digitalen Kommunikation, in der Biotechnik, den Neurowissenschaften und der Gentechnik. Inwiefern wir diese Entwicklungen gewinnbringend nutzen können und ab wann sie für uns zum Risiko werden, das debattiert Gore in seinem neuen, umfassenden Bestseller über unsere Zukunft.
