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.
Whether you’ve seen 2016: Obama’s America or not, you must read Dinesh D’Souza‘s companion volume and the follow-up to The Roots of Obama’s Rage, Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream (Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, 2012). In Obama’s America, D’Souza builds on and, occasionally, corrects what he wrote in The Roots of Obama’s Rage. He thoroughly supports his thesis that Obama’s ideology is driven by the anti-colonial “dreams from [his] father.”
After you read The Roots of Obama’s Rage, you should pick up Spreading the Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing the Suburbs To Pay for the Cities (New York: Sentinel-Penguin, 2012) by Stanley Kurtz, the author of Radical-in-Chief. When I started reading Spreading the Wealth, I was wondering how I would reconcile Kurtz’s theory with D’Souza’s. Finally, on pages 51-52, Kurtz explains the relationship between neocolonialism and regionalism.
Video: “Dishonorable Disclosures”
Intelligence and Special Operations forces are furious and frustrated at how President Obama and those in positions of authority have exploited their service for political advantage. Countless leaks, interviews and decisions by the Obama Administration and other government officials have undermined the success of our Intelligence and Special Operations forces and put future missions and personnel at risk.
The unwarranted and dangerous public disclosure of Special Forces Operations is so serious — that for the first time ever — former operators have agreed to risk their reputations and go ‘on the record’ in a special documentary titled “Dishonorable Disclosures.” Its goal is to educate America about serious breaches of security and prevent them from ever happening again.
Use of military ranks, titles & photographs in uniform does not imply endorsement of the Dept of the Army or the Department of Defense. All individuals are no longer in active service with any federal agency or military service.
I believe it was Sean Hannity I heard call The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic (Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, 2012) by David Limbaugh an encyclopedia. That is a good description. The book should be considered a reference work and kept on a handy shelf rather than read from beginning to end.
It includes a lot of good information but too much and too much detail for the casual reader to remember.
Limbaugh covers Obama’s war on
- the right
- the disobedient
- our culture and values
- the economy
- our future
- other energy resources
- national security
- the office of the President
Edward Klein‘s new book, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House (Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, 2012), is interesting, informative, and readable, but it is not objective. Klein doesn’t hesitate to insert his own opinion about Obama and his decisions and actions. Unlike Screwed by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, which I recently read and wrote about, The Amateur does have an index and a list of sources; however, there are no notes or parenthetical citations, and some of the people quoted aren’t even named. Those deficiencies certainly bring the book’s and author’s credibility into question.
