  • The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media's Favorite Candidate

    He's the media's darling, an inspiration to many, and the answer to everything from healthcare to taxes. He is Barack Obama - the silver-tongued senator with a phrase for everything and a promise for everyone. Sound too good to be true?

    Overall

    The true nature and agenda of President Obama is slowly emerging as his agenda unfolds. But it was all there IF ANYONE (other than Mr. Freddoso, can we say "the Media?") had bothered to wonder what he was doing/learning for 20 years between leaving the most radical wing of the Harvard Law School (who's OBJECTIVE is to figure ways to radically re-write the interpretation of the Constitution without having to go to all the trouble of actually amending it!) and his emergence on the national political scene. That is, mastering the tactics of left-wing Chicago politics with its unique mix of ruthless legal/political maneuvering (voting "present") in concert with literal mob intimidation when needed (ala ACORN and blue-collar union brownshirts). Now its too late but at least you will better understand why the man says all the "right" things, while DOING the exact opposite with his policies.

    A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed. There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.

    Ray says: "It Could Happen Soon"
    "Well written!"
    Overall

    It's actually a good story! Good pacing and plot, and of course does a good job of illustrating the dynamics of big government power.

    Talibanic enforcers burning books? The Supreme Court deciding that sharia law doesn't violate the "separation of church and state"? The Hollywood Left embracing polygamy? If you think these things can't happen, you haven't been paying attention, as the hilarious and provocative columnist Mark Steyn shows to devastating effect in this, his first book on American and global politics.

    A User says: "Got to read more from Mark Steyn"
    "Brute demographics!"
    Overall

    A 5-star book that I gave 4 because Mr. Stein should have read it! His marvelous senes of humor doesn't come through with this narrator which is a real shame. I would be willing to re-purchase this download if Mr. Stein were to re-record it. Anyway--I HOPE HE'S WRONG, and I don't agree with everything but his brutal collection of demographic evidence and history is compelling. More importantly, he NAILS the inherent, fatal weakness of our current wishy-washy, cultural relevatism in the face of assertive, aggressive, devout belief! By the time you realize what's happening--it's too late! (...as it already is in Europe and soon will be in the U.S.A.)

    "Fascists", "Brownshirts", "jackbooted stormtroopers" - such are the insults typically hurled at conservatives by their liberal opponents. Calling someone a fascist is the fastest way to shut them up, defining their views as beyond the political pale. But who are the real fascists in our midst?

    Randy says: "Like everything you were taught is a lie."
    "Deja Vu!"
    Overall

    Every thoughtful American or Westerner (as in civilization) should read/listen to this book! It's not what most liberals think it is--a simplistic "lumping in" of liberalism and naziism--but, rather a fair-minded presentation of historical facts and the evolution of the philosophies behind the political evolution of Europe and now the U.S. The historical parallels are chilling. Goldberg does a great job of documenting and laying out the philosophical and political path that took the Germans to where they ended up less than 100 years ago. Contemporary political events bare a chilling resemblance. Whether we continue down the same road may depend in large part on whether we have "failed to learn the lessons of history" presented here.
