Hands off My Gun by Dana Loesch

Hands off My Gun:  Defeating the Plot to Disarm America (New York: Center Street, 2014) is Dana Loesch‘s less-than-successful attempt to imitate Ann Coulter‘s snarky style and personal cover photos.  Loesch’s book does contain a lot of good information, though some of her anecdotes are repeated.  As the book is described on her website, it

is filled with research and detail. In addition to explaining why the Founding Fathers insisted on including the right to bear arms in the Bill of Rights, Loesch argues that “gun control” regulations throughout history have been used to keep minority populations under control. She also contends that current arguments in favor of gun control are primarily based on emotions and fear.

Hands off My Gun might be more readable if Loesch didn’t include unexplained slang (I seem to remember seeing the “word” mansplaining) and cultural references, particularly to musical groups a lot of her readers would never have heard of.

Faithless Execution by Andrew C. McCarthy

In Faithless Execution:  Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment (New York:  Encounter Books, 2014), Andrew McCarthy does precisely what he says in the subtitle. At the end of “Chapter One,” McCarthy states that  “The legal case for impeachment is very strong.  The political case lags far behind–and it is the only case that matters.  Political cases have to be built” (26).

Unfortunately, McCarthy is a lawyer, and based on the vocabulary, he seems to have written his book for other lawyers, which would include a lot of politicians–too many.  Faithless Execution is not written for the general reader.   However, the interested reader could comprehend the Articles of Impeachment in Part II (96-155), and I would strongly recommend reading at least those pages as a reminder of Obama’s lawlessness (i.e., “high crimes and misdemeanors,” which McCarthy does define in “Chapter Two.”

Despite his claim that “Political cases have to be built” (26), McCarthy fails to explain how the House could garner the necessary public support for impeaching Obama.

Breakout by Newt Gingrich

In Breakout: Pioneers of the Future, Prison Guards of the Past, and the Epic Battle That Will Decide America’s Future, Newt Gingrich and Ross Worthington write about current and future “breakouts,” which are “bigger and more powerful than breakthroughs” (6) in

  • learning
  • health
  • American energy
  • transportation
  • space
  • government

In addition, they discuss breakouts from poverty and disabilities.

Unfortunately, Gingrich recommends only revamping NASA and NIH rather than eliminating them entirely, which is what should be done since space exploration and medical research are not within the federal governments limited responsibilities.  (See the Constitution.)

This type of research and writing are clearly Newt’s niche and what he should be doing rather than running for president claiming to be a conservative.

I recommend the book to anyone interested in the future.

I found the following videos about Breakout:
