Donald J. Trump is smashing an enmeshed political spoils system to bits: the media complex, the political and party complex, the conservative poseur complex. You name it; Trump is tossing and goring it. The well-oiled elements that sustain and make the American political system cohere are suddenly in Brownian motion, oscillating like never before. An entrenched punditocracy, a self-anointed, meritless intelligentsia, oleaginous politicians, slick media, big money: These political players have built the den of iniquity that Trump is destroying. Against these forces is Trump, acting as a political Samson that threatens to bring the den of iniquity crashing down on its patrons. It is this achievement that the author of "The Trump Revolution: The Donald's Creative Destruction Deconstructed" cheers. By drastically diminishing The Machine's moving parts, the author hopes Trump might just help loosen the chains that bind the individual to central government, national and transnational. In the age of unconstitutional government-Democratic and Republican-this Trumpian process of creative destruction can only increase the freedom quotient. We inhabit what broadcaster Mark Levin has termed a post-constitutional America, explains ILANA Mercer. The libertarian ideal-where the chains that tether us to an increasingly tyrannical national government are loosened and power is devolved once again to the smaller units of society-is a long way away. In this post-constitutional jungle, the law of the jungle prevails. In this legislative jungle, the options are few: Do Americans get a benevolent authoritarian to undo the legacies of Barack Obama, George W. Bush and those who went before? Or, does the ill-defined entity called The People continue to submit to Demopublican diktats, past and present? The author of "The Trump Revolution" contends that in the age of unconstitutional government, the best liberty lovers can look to is "action and counteraction, force and counterforce in the service of liberty." Until such time when the individual is king again, and a decentralized constitution that guarantees regional and individual autonomy has been restored-the process of creative destruction begun by Mr. Trump is likely the best Americans can hope for. A close reading of "The Trump Revolution" will reveal that matters of process are being underscored. Thus the endorsement over the pages of "The Trump Revolution" is not necessarily for the policies of Trump, but for The Process of Trump, the outcome of which might see a single individual weaken the chains that bind each one of us to an oppressive, centralized authority and to the system that serves and sustains it. "The Trump Revolution: The Donald's Creative Destruction Deconstructed" takes the reader through Trump's political progression in real time, when many of the book's essays were penned. The author galvanizes concepts in American political theory-such as John C. Calhoun's idea of a concurrent majority and historian David Hackett Fischer's notion of the omnibus candidate-to bolster her case that the Trump revolution is the last heave-ho of America's historic, founding majority and those who identify with it and value its legacy.
The West has finally realized that ""bringing Democracy"" to the Middle East and Southwest Asia is not necessarily in the best interests of Western Civilization. Radical Islam is hijacking its plans and making a mockery of Democracy itself. In South Africa, an earlier experiment in "Bestowed Democracy" is failing under a burden of abuse. Much taken with its own role in undoing apartheid a full generation earlier, the West prefers to look away. It appears to treat the plight of Western people in that country as a form of required penance. In the process, it indulges what is in effect a corrupt One-Party State Kleptocracy run along the Party Congress lines of its original mentor, the defunct Soviet Union. "AmaBhulu" is a view of South Africa through eyes different from those employed in fifty years of media reporting, social science, and politics. The author walks the reader from the 1652 landing of the Dutch to the present by following his own family bloodlines as example through the documented history of the country, supported by copious evidence. As settlers, soldiers, slaves, and indigenes, they farm, they fight, they triumph, and they lose. They are mercilessly impaled and massacred by savage African tyrants. They are hanged and fusilladed by an imperial overlord, and herded into concentration camps. Yet, they persevere to create a key Western Christian country; the envy of all Africa and a Cold War bulwark of the West. Eventually it falls to the author to describe the loss of his country through forces beyond his control. In 1797 the British Royal Navy feared South Africa would become a "Second America" for Britain, while, in the 20th century, the country was to Africa what the United States was to the world. "AmaBhulu" describes the developing crisis in the Second America that will inevitably entangle the First America. It is a study in the death of Civilization by its own collective hand; a severe warning for the West. "AmaBhulu" should give pause to every thinking Westerner.

The biggest lie of our generation is how black people are relentless victims of relentless white violence. Often at the end of a badge. This book uses more than 1000 examples to document the wide spread black crime and violence, often directed at white people. And it shows how the media ignore, condone, and deny it. And how politicians, including the President, are willing partners in this deception.

Despite the unsavory racism of Malan's government - Borstelmann shows that Pretoria fomented violence among black groups in the late 1940s, just as it has done recently between the ANC and Inkatha - the U.S. saw South Africa as a dependable and important ally. In addition, America was almost completely dependent on southern Africa for its uranium supply, and was willing to go to great lengths to secure the critical fuel for its nuclear arsenal. Borstelmann also notes that race relations in the segregated U.S. played a role in Washington's policies, with few white Americans greatly disturbed by the establishment of apartheid. As South Africa finally nears an end to almost fifty years of formal apartheid (and as Truman nears canonization, following the recent presidential election), Borstelmann's account comes as a startling reminder of America's early links to Pretoria's racist system

In 1652 a small group of Dutch farmers landed on the southernmost tip of Africa. Sent by the powerful Dutch India Company, their mission was simply to grow vegetables and supply ships rounding the cape. The colonists, however, were convinced by their strict Calvinist faith that they were among God's “Elect,” chosen to rule over the continent. Their saga—bloody, ferocious, and fervent—would culminate three centuries later in one of the greatest tragedies of history: the establishment of a racist regime in which a white minority would subjugate and victimize millions of blacks. Called apartheid, it was a poisonous system that would only end with the liberation from prison of one of the moral giants of our time, Nelson Mandela. A Rainbow in the Night is Dominique Lapierre's epic account of South Africa's tragic history and the heroic men and women—famous and obscure, white and black, European and African—who have, with their blood and tears, brought to life the country that is today known as the Rainbow Nation.
The New York Times says the Knockout Game is a lie. USA Today says it is a myth, a product of white fear. This book settles that once and for all. This is the most complete collection of Knockout Game links and videos and stories ever assembled. "Knockout Game a Lie?" uses hundreds of links to videos and stories that provide the compelling answer: "Aww, hell no!" It also contains a link to a video with hundreds of examples. Created by the author of White Girl Bleed a Lot, Colin Flaherty has written more about the Knockout Game than anyone. So says American Thinker, Bretibart and Daily Caller. "Knockout Game a Lie?" documents the denials: How the Knockout Game is a myth because black mob violence and black on white crime that is wildly out of proportion is also a myth, say the deniers. But the Knockout Game attacks just kept happening by the hundreds. By the time the Knockout Game became a national buzz word in November of 2013, I had been writing about it for two years. First in White Girl Bleed a Lot. Then dozens of times afterward in WND.com, FrontPage.com, Breitbart, AmericanThinker.com and lots of other places. Critics liked it: Thomas Sowell, Allen West, Breitbart, Joseph Farah, Thomas Lifson, the Daily Caller, WND, American Thinker, David Horowitz, Jamie Glazov and others said I was ahead of the curve. Way ahead. Others like the Los Angeles Times and Village Voice and Salon said I was making the whole thing up. National talk radio host Thom Hartmann said White Girl Bleed a Lot caused the Knockout Game. Just the way MSNBC said White Girl Bleed a Lot caused the Boston Marathon bombing. There is a lot of craziness surrounding the denials of the Knockout Game. These denials cannot survive the truth, so let’s present that here without racism. Without rancor. Without apologies. After you read Knockout Game a Lie?, you might try to explain it, but you can no longer deny it. When you get there, let me know.
A disgusted Black man boldly confronts the dysfunctional and criminal subculture (along with their apologists) that exists within the African-American community. This race-realist endeavor exposes many inconvenient truths, and will certainly become a catalyst for candid conversation. Flooded with statistics, headlines, pictures, and other evidence, this book is not simply an anecdotal tale of a miserable, inner-city existence... it's a war report.

Diana West sees a US filled with middle-age guys playing air guitar and thinks "No wonder we can't stop Islamic terrorism." She sees Moms Who Mosh and wonders "Is there a single adult left anywhere?" But, the grown-ups are all gone. The disease that killed them was incubated in the sixties to a rock-and-roll score, took hold in the seventies with the help of multiculturalism and left us with a nation of eternal adolescents who can't decide between "good" and "bad", a generation who can't say "no". From the inability to nix a sixteen year-old's request for Marilyn Manson concert tickets to offering adolescents parentally-funded motel rooms on prom night to rationalizing murderous acts of Islamic suicide bombers with platitudes of cultural equivalence, West sees us on a slippery slope that's lead to a time when America has forgotten its place in the world. In The Death of the Grown-Up Diana West serves up a provocative critique of our dangerously indecisive world leavened with humor and shot through with insight.
The author uses her own life story and her observations and analysis of Hillary Rodham Clinton's 2008 bid for the U.S. presidency to illustrate her arguments regarding the current portrayal and treatment of women within political dialogue and by the media.

Respected historian and political scientist Barry Rubin exposes the radicalism that masquerades as liberalism today in Silent Revolution, his thorough history that charts the movement's unchecked rise to cultural and political power. Over the past fifty years, an ideological revolution has created a brand of radical leftism that now dominates the liberal movement in the United States. The values espoused by the left today are a far cry from the traditional progressive and Enlightenment values that have historically defined the movement. Barry Rubin argues that, after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989, the survivors of the '60s New Left drew on the ideas of radicals like Saul Alinsky, cultural Marxists like Antonio Gramsci, and Third World revolutionary thinkers like Frantz Fanon to create a Third Left: a radical movement that championed a new class of experts and managers to seize control from within. Silent Revolution explores the formation and ideology of The Third Left and documents how this movement culminated in 2008, when Americans elected the most radical left-wing government in their history. Concise and hard-hitting, Silent Revolution is a must for all conservatives looking to understand and overcome American liberalism.
