    The first fundamental truth about the "Arab Spring" is that there never was one. The salient fact of the Middle East, the only one, is Islam. The Islam that shapes the Middle East inculcates in Muslims the self-perception that they are members of a civilization implacably hostile to the West. The United States is a competitor to be overcome, not the herald of a culture to be embraced.

    A Chinook helicopter carrying a squad of Navy Seals suddenly plummets to earth in Afghanistan. A car driven by FBI agents tailing a suspicious vehicle is mysteriously rendered immobile in San Francisco. The body of a Chinese agent is found floating miles from the Golden Gate Bridge after being fed to sharks. In A Time for War, the U.S. is under secret attack and only Jack Hatfield, a popular television host hounded from his position by left-wing forces in the media for speaking the truth, suspects the danger of this lethal conspiracy.

    Story

    I have been waiting for this book after finishing and enjoying Abuse of Power. Savage is a great writer and has an amazing mind. Even though the story is filled with preposterous events his amazing mind makes them almost enjoyable to listen to.

    A week after finishing the book I am learning Chinese and not worried about the Red Chinese, despite the books intentions. He makes the Chinese the ones that control the Jihadis which is not true. Google Khojaly to see how anti-Jihadi the Chinese have been.

    It is too bad this book is a distraction from the true enemy to freedom. Google video Muslim Patrol to see what I think is coming to America in the next couple of years. Of course not all Muslims are Jihadi. A large majority of Muslims do not follow Sharia, which can create Sharia Patrols and Jihadis. Unfortunately, Savage does not go down the direction he did in Abuse of Power.
    If you have not year read/listened to Abuse of Power I would ASAP. It is a 5 star book IMHO. Unfortunately this book is not. If you are a big Savage Fan you might enjoy Time for War for his great writing. But if you have not read/listened to Abuse of Power it is on audible and I can not recommend it higher: http://mobile.audible.com/productDetail.htm?asin=B005LXUYXY&s=s I am going to try to return this outlandish book. It is well written but I hope he does not go through this rabbit hole on his radio show.

    PS I am not Chinese and I have no ties to China but I think this new path is wrong and reckless. I am going to hear what my Mom thinks of this book before I return it. Audibles return policy is amazing that is why I recommend it so much but I don't want to abuse it. I think this book is preposterous enough for it to apply. I wish I was warned and did not waste 10 and a half hours but I am going to see what my Mom says.

  • The Conservative Nanny State: How the Wealthy Use the Government to Stay Rich and Get Richer

    In his new book, economist Dean Baker debunks the myth that conservatives favor the market over government intervention. In fact, conservatives rely on a range of "nanny state" policies that ensure the rich get richer while leaving most Americans worse off. It's time for the rules to change. Sound economic policy should harness the market in ways that produce desirable social outcomes: decent wages, good jobs, and affordable health care.

    Liberals like raping children. Raping childern is wrong. There for liberals are wrong. This is how the book goes but replace liberal with conservative and the book does not say they rape children but they use some absurd red harrings. I am a big fan of conservative thought. I want to hear a well thought out rebuttal of the ideas. Unfortunately, this book is not what I was looking for. I want my time back. Stay away.

    A number-one New York Times best-selling author and superstar radio personality, Michael Savage is admired by millions for his tough talk and no-punches-pulled common sense about the state of our union and its leaders. In Train Tracks, a more personal side of Savage shines through in this marvelous collection of "American Stories for the Holidays". Like Glen Beck’s blockbuster, The Christmas Sweater, Michael Savage’s poignant, personal stories of home, family, and the holidays will resonate with listeners everywhere.

    Some amazing stories. Just 2 strange hours about an unlucky speculator in the middle that I don't think belongs there. I listen to Savage most days and I heard most of the stories before but still I listened to a large portion of this audio twice. Does anyone else find the unlucky speculator saga out of place and boring?

    Hostile Takeover is a rebellious challenge to the "upper management" of government, who are choking American prosperity and liberty. Matt Kibbe exposes the privileged collusion of Washington insiders - and maps out a proven plan for how to return power from the self-appointed "experts" back to the people. Dubbed "one of the Tea Party's masterminds" by Newsweek, Kibbe reveals how grassroots citizens can and will check the federal behemoth and restore the American enterprise.

    Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom. There are only the Authorities. Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known.

    In his giant New York Times best seller, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, Mark Steyn predicted collapse for the rest of the Western World. Now, he adds, America has caught up with Europe on the great rush to self-destruction. What will a world without American leadership look like? It won’t be pretty—not for you and not for your children. America’s decline won’t be gradual, like an aging Europe sipping espresso at a café until extinction. No, America’s decline will be a wrenching affair marked by violence and possibly secession.

    Has After America turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not really. I have great hope in Mark Styen he is witty and really sharp. Everyone has bad days and I think this book is really bad.

    Trickle Down Tyranny is the single book you need to stop Obama's emerging dictatorship before we lose all of our constitutional, God-given rights. These pages show you the dangerous laws and powergrabs of the Obama administration… and what we can do to stop this leftist gang from seizing another term in office. Obama is transforming us into a second-class nation, with communists and Islamists given free rein to expand their power.

    Michael was born with special electrical powers - and he’s not the only one. His friend Taylor has them too, and so do other kids around the world. With Michael’s friend Ostin, a techno-genius, they form the Electroclan, an alliance meant to protect them from a powerful group, the growing Order of Elgen, who are out to destroy them. The leader of the Elgen, Dr. Hatch, has kidnapped Michael’s mother, and time is running out. After narrowly escaping an Elgen trap, Ostin’s discovery of bizarre “rat fires” in South America leads the gang to the jungles of Peru.

    For decades, the Left has been putting on a play with themselves as heroes in an ongoing civil rights move­ment - which they were mostly absent from at the time. Long after pervasive racial discrimination ended, they kept pretending America was being run by the Klan and that liberals were black America’s only protectors. It took the O. J. Simpson verdict - the race-based acquittal of a spectacularly guilty black celebrity as blacks across America erupted in cheers - to shut down the white guilt bank.
