In Federalist Number 46, James Madison insists that Americans would never be crazy enough to fund a federal government that was destroying rather than protecting their property. Madison promised his readers that his countrymen would never watch while the storm clouds of tyranny gathered and grew darker, much less stand by while a deluge of despotism drowned themselves and their posterity. Sorry, Mr. Madison, but we are just that lazy and just that crazy! Just in case his worst-case scenario should come to pass, though, Mr. Madison left us with an inventory of "powerful" weapons that he said states would have "at hand." "What Degree of Madness?" chronicles how we got in our current condition and how we can still deploy the weapons Madison catalogued to Make America STATES Again! And, if we are diligent, we will finally force the federal beast back inside its constitutional cage! __________ Joe Wolverton's latest book provides a message America needs. America needs a course correction. Instead of following the success formula set forth in our founding documents, The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution, we have been traveling a suboptimal path. Restoration of the proper relationship between the states and the federal government will restore the greatest freedom to our country. We will no longer have a national government but will bring us back to a federal government which will bring lasting freedom and prosperity. Joe's scholarship and writing on this important topic is vital to our nation's future. - Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) "State nullification" has always been part of the American political tradition, but since the Civil War a largely suppressed part. Today, however, state nullification (and even secession) are again topical-though not well understood. This book-well suited for a general audience-is a thorough study of the importance of state nullification today as a lawful instrument for resisting federal tyranny. - Donald Livingston, Prof. of Philos
Throughout the history of the United States, only nine men were elevated to the White House by the death or failure of a sitting president, and their legacies are as mixed as their circumstances. This book evaluates the similarities and distinct differences of these men, their varying degrees of ambition and readiness, and how each handled their suddenly enormous duties. Some became presidential legends, while others are counted among the worst. Their shared stories shed light on America's political development during the last two centuries.
From the authors of THE SOUTH WAS RIGHT! comes a new edition of what one historian calls one of the most important and original histories of the Southern people. PUNISHED WITH POVERTY tells the unvarnished story of the intentional policy of economic devastation and exploitation of the South which has affected all Southerners, both black and white, long after the close of the "Civil War" and "Reconstruction." In fact, the sad legacy of these punitive policies continues to this very day. The over-arching theme of Southern history is not Race, as is conventionally stated, but Poverty-poverty not due to the South's shortcomings but imposed on them by the system under which they live. PUNISHED WITH POVERTY is a timely and much needed contribution to the understanding of both the South and the nature of the "Federal Empire" under which all Americans now live. COMMENTS ON PUNISHED WITH POVERTY "If enough Southerners would read and take to heart Punished with Poverty, it would bring about a revolution in American politics." - Dr. Clyde N. Wilson, author, publisher, and "Godfather" of Southern History "Long known for their intellectual fearlessness, the best-selling authors of The South Was Right examine the roots of Southern poverty and the continuing struggle between the Southern culture-Bible believing, conservative and pro-Constitution-and the Federal Empire, which seeks to expand its power and stifle and restrict individual liberty at every opportunity. This eye-opening book focuses on the economic aspects of that struggle (but not exclusively) and should be required reading in every American history course in this country. . ." - Dr. Samuel Mitcham, author of It Wasn't About Slavery: Exposing the Great Lie of the Civil War and The Greatest Lynching in American History: New York 1863 "As the Kennedy's have explained in this impressive book, the Confederate dead were not the only Southerners buried by the War. Lincoln's 'New America' foisted years of poverty on the South
The Great Lie of the Civil War If you think the Civil War was fought to end slavery, you’ve been duped. In fact, as distinguished military historian Samuel Mitcham argues in his provocative new book, It Wasn’t About Slavery, no political party advocated freeing the slaves in the presidential election of 1860. The Republican Party platform opposed the expansion of slavery to the western states, but it did not embrace abolition. The real cause of the war was a dispute over money and self-determination. Before the Civil War, the South financed most of the federal government—because the federal government was funded by tariffs, which were paid disproportionately by the agricultural South that imported manufactured goods. Yet, most federal government spending and subsidies benefited the North. The South wanted a more limited federal government and lower tariffs—the ideals of Thomas Jefferson—and when the South could not get that, it opted for independence. Lincoln was unprepared when the Southern states seceded, and force was the only way to bring them—and their tariff money—back. That was the real cause of the war. A well-documented and compelling read by a master historian, It Wasn’t About Slavery will change the way you think about Abraham Lincoln, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the cause and legacy of America’s momentous Civil War.
The purpose of this book is to better understand the causes of ineffective thinking and provide some skills and protocol for improving it. This book provides a detailed understanding of human thinking, from the biology to the structure of our thoughts and ideas. It provides a clear understanding of what defines “reality,” which is not taught in our schools and thus creates a huge problem for our culture. It first defines four fundamental principles and uses those principles to evaluate the conventional wisdom of our political world today. It provides scientific knowledge about what a liberal and conservative mindset is. It addresses the many subjects that have been hijacked by our leadership, to include politics, schools, government, man-caused climate change, diversity, identity politics, racism, discrimination, and other liberal agenda topics, like ‘gay rights.’
Can Western civilization stop its decline? The West gave the World the light bulb, the internal combustion engine and much more that vastly improved the life on earth. But lately, the West is tired, hopeless, and dying. Author Shivaji Lokam says Western countries have been in a self-destruction mode for the past hundred years: first the two World Wars, then the Cold War, now the Experts-driven utopian pursuit of Open Borders and Multiculturalism. The unaccountable experts have been wrong more times than anybody can count. They were wrong on financial crisis, bailouts, stagnant wages, higher taxes, brexit, trump, global trade deals. The experts failed because they were part of the problem. This incredible book tells the story of why they get it wrong every time and their pivotal role in causing the irreversible Western decline. In The fall of Western Civilization you will learn: • How Classical Liberalism caused World Wars, Great Depression, Socialism, Fascism, Cold War, and Decolonization • Why Modern Liberalism wants nothing short of the full destruction of the West and its values • Why the West is becoming less free • How America and Europe’s destruction were long sown in the novel ideas that came out of the European Enlightenment two hundred years ago • Why the elites in the West are utterly clueless and how their fancy education never contributed anything positive • What were the ultimate causes of the 2008 Financial Crisis that crippled the western economies Based on extensive research and fresh understanding of economics, Author Shivaji Lokam weaves through the forces of industry, technology, human nature, religion, and nation-state, to tell how and why the West is collapsing. Original and fresh, The fall of Western Civilization is essential reading to understand why Liberalism has been the greatest hoax ever played on the West.
He is the star of a hit Broadway musical, the face on the ten dollar bill, and a central figure among the founding fathers. But do you really know Alexander Hamilton? Rather than lionize Hamilton, Americans should carefully consider his most significant and ultimately detrimental contribution to modern society: the shredding of the United States Constitution. Connecting the dots between Hamilton’s invention of implied powers in 1791 to transgender bathrooms and same-sex marriage two centuries later, Brion McClanahan shows the origins of our modern federal leviathan.

The ghosts that haunt our sexual pleasure were born in the Stone Age. Sex and gender taboos were used by tribes to differentiate themselves from one another. These taboos filtered into the lives of Bronze and Iron Age men and women who lived in city-states and empires. For the early Christians, all sex play was turned into sin, instilled with guilt, and punished severely. With the invention of sin came the construction of women as subordinate beings to men. Despite the birth of romance in the late middle ages, Renaissance churches held inquisitions to seek out and destroy sex sinners, all of whom it saw as heretics. The Age of Reason saw the demise of these inquisitions. But, it was doctors who would take over the roles of priests and ministers as sex became defined by discourses of crime, degeneracy, and sickness. The middle of the 20th century saw these medical and religious teachings challenged for the first time as activists, such as Alfred Kinsey and Margaret Sanger, sought to carve out a place for sexual freedom in society. However, strong opposition to their beliefs and the growing exploitation of sex by the media at the close of the century would ultimately shape 21st century sexual ambivalence. Book Two of this two-part publication traces the history of sex from the Victorian Era to present day. Interspersed with ‘personal hauntings’ from his own life and the lives of friends and relatives, Knowles reveals how historical discourses of sex continue to haunt us today. This book is a page-turner in simple and plain language about ‘how sex got screwed up’ for millennia. For Knowles, if we know the history of sex, we can get over it.
The unspoken American promise is that each generation will lead a better, more successful life than the previous one. In earlier times, it was an education that provided the next generations a better life. For today’s children, though, decades of failed school reform have left a generation wondering if this promise has been broken.Despite policies, programs, and resources, American education does not live up to its expectations. In Screwed-Up School Reform, Richard G. Shear and Bruce S. Cooper reveal that generations of school reforms have actively worked to cure the symptoms of “broken schools,” but not the overarching, fundamental problems that permeate the system. Virtually an entire society has failed to understand the main problem with American education: children are rejecting its practices and conditions. But, the screwed-up education system is fixable, and it can be fixed now. If reformers focus instead on changing education’s foundation, then children will instead succeed at school and in their personal lives.
PRESIDENT NIXON shows a man alone in a White House ruled by secrets and lies, trying to impose old values at home and new balances of power everywhere in the world. Reeves proves that the Watergate scandal was no abberation in an administration foreshadowed by a series of successful uses of 'national security' to cover coups, burglaries, lies, the abandonment of America's allies - and even murder. Reeves portrays a man of vision and iron will who created, used and was used by a small cast of hard, ambitious men who formed a poisonous circle around their insecure leader. Alone, Nixon challenged and changed the world's political and military balance while also plotting to destroy both the Democratic and Republican parties in an attempt to create secretly a new party of the centre. This account of Nixon's stewardship will stand as the balanced, authoratative portrait of an astonishng president and his ruined presidency.
On November 9, 1989, the Berlin Wall collapsed, taking the Cold War down with it. The next twelve years passed in a haze of self-congratulation, Republican confusion, and angst, and economic prosperity -- until they ended abruptly with a stunning catastrophe on September 11, 2001. In America Between The Wars, Derek Chollet and James Goldgeier blend deep expertise with broad access to both parties' political and policy establishments to find out how -- and why -- America failed to recognize that when we became the sole superpower with responsibility for the world's oversight, we overlooked how the new world actually worked.
“America’s Failure In Iraq” (402 pages, 198 photographs, 2 maps), explores the involvement of the United States in Iraq beginning with the Gulf War of 1991, under the 'leadership' of President George H.W. Bush and Colin Powell. It continues through the post-war years of the impotent United Nations sanctions that destroyed the Iraqi economy, the events of September 11, 2001, and the ineptitude of our nation’s senior leadership, that culminated with the US invasion of Iraq in the spring of 2003. The termination of the Gulf War was one of the worst political-military decisions of modern times. But the invasion of Iraq by his son 12 years later led the United States into a 'mini-Vietnam' scenario that has split our nation down the middle again.
