The Great Great Wall: Along the Borders of History from China to Mexico Audiobook

The Great Great Wall: Along the Borders of History from China to Mexico

Author: Ian Volner Narrator: Ian Volner Release Date: June 2019

During his campaign for the presidency, one of Donald Trump's signature promises was that he would build a "great great wall" on the border between the United States and Mexico, and Mexico was going to pay for it. A year and a half into his term, with only a few prototype segments erected, the wall is the 2,000-mile multibillion-dollar elephant in the room of contemporary American life. In The Great Great Wall, architectural historian and critic Ian Volner takes a deep dive into the story of Trump's wall. Volner follows the conception, selling, design, and construction (or lack thereof) of this expensive and consequential barrier, giving listeners a detailed description of what's happening in Washington, DC-and along the border. He also travels far afield, to China, the Middle East, northern England, and back to our border to examine the barriers we've been building for centuries. Why do we build walls? What do they reveal about human history?

Basics of Resistance: The Practical Freedomista, Book I

Author: Claire Wolf, Kit Perez Narrator: Francine Waverly Release Date: June 2019

Have you looked around lately and felt like something's fundamentally wrong? Are you tired of having to ask permission to live your life? Are you angered by the level of control and surveillance you see everywhere? Are you sick of everyone wanting your data? If you want to do something about it but aren't sure where to start, this book is for you. Well-known resistance author Claire Wolfe (The Freedom Outlaw's Handbook and the Hardyville Tales) has teamed up with counterintelligence analyst and liberty activist Kit Perez to pen a beginning 'how-to' for those who are ready to do more than complain on social media. You'll learn about how to get properly set up, ideas for action ranging from easy to dangerous (but never violent or harmful), and how to find and collaborate with like-minded folks in a way that will help keep you safe and out of jail while still getting stuff done. You'll get an overview of how resistance works, why it's important, and how you can get started-today-in an accessible, entertaining format. If you often think that 'someone should do something,' then this book will tell you how to be that someone.

Asedio: Trump en el punto de mira Audiobook

Asedio: Trump en el punto de mira

Author: Michael Wolff Narrator: Mio Marabotto Release Date: June 2019

The Spanish-language edition of Siege: Trump Under Fire, the immediate sequel to Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House (Fuego y furia: Dentro de la Casa Blanca de Trump). [English-language edition: Siege: Trump Under Fire / 9781250253828 (Henry Holt, 6/4/2019)] Michael Wolff, author of the bombshell bestseller Fire and fury (Fuego y furia), once again takes us inside the Trump presidency to reveal a White House under siege. With Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in Siege (Asedio), he has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side. A stunningly fresh narrative that begins just as Trump's second year as president is getting underway and ends with the delivery of the Mueller report, Siege reveals an administration that is perpetually beleaguered by investigations and a president who is increasingly volatile, erratic, and exposed.

How to Read the Constitution--and Why Audiobook

How to Read the Constitution--and Why

Author: Kim Wehle Narrator: Kim Wehle Release Date: June 2019

An insightful, urgent, and perennially relevant handbook that lays out in common sense language how the United States Constitution works, and how its protections are eroding before our eyes—essential reading for anyone who wants to understand and parse the constantly breaking news about the backbone of American government. The Constitution is the most significant document in America. But do you fully understand what this valuable document means to you? In How to Read the Constitution and Why, legal expert and educator Kimberly Wehle spells out in clear, simple, and common sense terms what is in the Constitution, and most importantly, what it means. In compelling terms, she describes how the Constitution’s protections are eroding—not only in express terms but by virtue of the many legal and social norms that no longer shore up its legitimacy—and why every American needs to heed to this “red flag” moment in our democracy. This invaluable—and timely—resource covers nearly every significant aspect of the Constitution, from the powers of the President and how the three branches of government are designed to hold each other accountable, to what it means to have individual rights—including free speech, the right to bear arms, the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, and the right to an abortion. Finally, the book explains why it has never been more important than now for all Americans to know how our Constitution works—and why, if we don’t step in to protect it now, we could lose its protections forever. How to Read the Constitution and Why  is essential reading for anyone who cares about maintaining an accountable government and the individual freedoms that the Constitution enshrines for everyone in America—regardless of political party.

The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America Audiobook

The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America

Author: Jim Acosta Narrator: Jim Acosta Release Date: June 2019

From CNN’s veteran Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, an explosive, first-hand account of the dangers he faces reporting on the current White House while fighting on the front lines in President Trump’s war on truth.  In Mr. Trump’s campaign against what he calls “Fake News,” CNN Chief White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta, is public enemy number one. From the moment Mr. Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, he has attacked the media, calling journalists “the enemy of the people.” Acosta presents a damning examination of bureaucratic dysfunction, deception, and the unprecedented threat the rhetoric Mr. Trump is directing has on our democracy. When the leader of the free world incites hate and violence, Acosta doesn’t back down, and he urges his fellow citizens to do the same. At Mr. Trump’s most hated network, CNN, Acosta offers a never-before-reported account of what it’s like to be the President’s most hated correspondent. Acosta goes head-to-head with the White House, even after Trump supporters have threatened his life with words as well as physical violence. From the hazy denials and accusations meant to discredit the Mueller investigation, to the president’s scurrilous tweets, Jim Acosta is in the eye of the storm while reporting live to millions of people across the world. After spending hundreds of hours with the revolving door of White House personnel, Acosta paints portraits of the personalities of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephen Miller, Steve Bannon, Sean Spicer, Hope Hicks, Jared Kushner and more. Acosta is tenacious and unyielding in his public battle to preserve the First Amendment and #RealNews.

Panic Attack: Young Radicals in the Age of Trump Audiobook

Panic Attack: Young Radicals in the Age of Trump

Author: Robby Soave Narrator: Robby Soave Release Date: June 2019

Since the 2016 election, college campuses have erupted in violent protests, demands for safe spaces, and the silencing of views that activist groups find disagreeable. Who are the leaders behind these protests, and what do they want? In Panic Attack, libertarian journalist Robby Soave answers these questions by profiling young radicals from across the political spectrum. Millennial activism has risen to new heights in the age of Trump. Although Soave may not personally agree with their motivations and goals, he takes their ideas seriously, approaching his interviews with a mixture of respect and healthy skepticism. The result is a faithful cross-section of today's radical youth, which will appeal to libertarians, conservatives, centrist liberals, and anyone who is alarmed by the trampling of free speech and due process in the name of social justice.

The Death of Politics: How to Heal Our Frayed Republic After Trump Audiobook

The Death of Politics: How to Heal Our Frayed Republic After Trump

Author: Peter Wehner Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: June 2019

The New York Times opinion writer, media commentator, outspoken Republican and Christian critic of the Trump presidency offers a spirited defense of politics and its virtuous and critical role in maintaining our democracy and what we must do to save it before it is too late. “Any nation that elects Donald Trump to be its president has a remarkably low view of politics.” Frustrated and feeling betrayed, Americans have come to loathe politics with disastrous results, argues Peter Wehner. In this timely manifesto, the veteran of three Republican administrations and man of faith offers a reasoned and persuasive argument for restoring “politics” as a worthy calling to a cynical and disillusioned generation of Americans. Wehner has long been one of the leading conservative critics of Donald Trump and his effect on the Republican Party. In this impassioned book, he makes clear that unless we overcome the despair that has caused citizens to abandon hope in the primary means for improving our world—the political process—we will not only fall victim to despots but hasten the decline of what has truly made America great. Drawing on history and experience, he reminds us of the hard lessons we have learned about how we rule ourselves—why we have checks and balances, why no one is above the law, why we defend the rights of even those we disagree with. Wehner believes we can turn the country around, but only if we abandon our hatred and learn to appreciate and honor the unique and noble American tradition of doing “politics.” If we want the great American experiment to continue and to once again prosper, we must once more take up the responsibility each and every one of us as citizens share.

Unmasked: Big Media's War Against Trump Audiobook

Unmasked: Big Media's War Against Trump

Author: L. Brent Bozell Narrator: Phil Paonessa Release Date: June 2019

Lecturer, syndicated columnist, television commentator, debater, marketer, businessman, bestselling author, publisher, and activist L. Brent Bozell III is one of the most outspoken and effective national leaders in the conservative movement today. As the founder and president of the Media Research Center, Mr. Bozell runs the largest media watchdog organization in America and is uniquely positioned to offer this blazing critique of the bias in the national media and how they undermine American democracy. Using coverage of the rise of Donald Trump and his presidency as a case study of sorts, Bozell and his co-author Tim Graham expose all the different types of bias that can occur-both hidden and overt-and examine their insidious effects. This narrative also follows and analyzes the campaigns-and results-of the 2018 midterms, providing the most comprehensive, detailed, and explosive analysis to date concerning how the media willingly stokes divisiveness in American politics.

The Conservative Sensibility Audiobook

The Conservative Sensibility

Author: George F. Will Narrator: Peter Ganim Release Date: June 2019

New York Times Bestseller From the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, an 'astonishing' and 'enthralling' (Booklist) new examination of how the Founders' belief in natural rights created a great American political tradition--'easily one of the best books on American Conservatism ever written' (Jonah Goldberg). For more than four decades, George F. Will has attempted to discern the principles of the Western political tradition and apply them to America's civic life. Today, the stakes could hardly be higher. Vital questions about the nature of man, of rights, of equality, of majority rule are bubbling just beneath the surface of daily events in America. The Founders' vision, articulated first in the Declaration of Independence and carried out in the Constitution, gave the new republic a framework for government unique in world history. Their beliefs in natural rights, limited government, religious freedom, and in human virtue and dignity ushered in two centuries of American prosperity. Now, as Will shows, conservatism is under threat--both from progressives and elements inside the Republican Party. America has become an administrative state, while destructive trends have overtaken family life and higher education. Semi-autonomous executive agencies wield essentially unaccountable power. Congress has failed in its duty to exercise its legislative powers. And the executive branch has slipped the Constitution's leash. In the intellectual battle between the vision of Founding Fathers like James Madison, who advanced the notion of natural rights that pre-exist government, and the progressivism advanced by Woodrow Wilson, the Founders have been losing. It's time to reverse America's political fortunes. Expansive, intellectually thrilling, and written with the erudite wit that has made Will beloved by millions of readers, The Conservative Sensibility is an extraordinary new book from one of America's most celebrated political writers.

Crimes and Cover-ups in American Politics: 1776-1963 Audiobook

Crimes and Cover-ups in American Politics: 1776-1963

Author: Donald Jeffries Narrator: Lars Mikaelson Release Date: June 2019

The history that the textbooks left out. For far too long, American history has been left in the unreliable hands of those that author Donald Jeffries refers to as the court historians. American Crimes and Cover-Ups: 1776-1963 fights back by scrutinizing the accepted history of everything from the American War of Independence to the establishment reputation of Thomas Jefferson and the other Founding Fathers, the Civil War, the Lincoln assassination, both World Wars, US government experimentation on prisoners, mental patients, innocent children and whole populated areas, the Lindbergh baby kidnapping and much, much more. Secular saints like Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Franklin D. Roosevelt are examined in a critical way they seldom have been. Jeffries spares no one and nothing in this explosive new book. The atrocities of Union troops during the Civil War, and Allied troops during World War II, are documented in great detail. The Nuremberg Trials are presented as the antithesis of justice. In the follow-up to his previous, bestselling book Hidden History: An Exposé of Modern Crimes, Conspiracies, and Cover-Ups in American Politics, Jeffries demonstrates that crimes, corruption, and conspiracies didn't start with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. History should be much more than cardboard villains and impossibly unrealistic heroes. Thanks to the efforts of the court historians, most Americans are historically illiterate. American Crimes and Cover-Ups: 1776-1963 is a bold attempt at setting the record straight.

The Crime of Aggression: The Quest for Justice in an Age of Drones, Cyberattacks, Insurgents, and Au Audiobook

The Crime of Aggression: The Quest for Justice in an Age of Drones, Cyberattacks, Insurgents, and Au

Author: Noah Weisbord Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: June 2019

On July 17, 2018, starting an unjust war became a prosecutable international crime alongside genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. The Crime of Aggression is Noah Weisbord's riveting insider's account of the high-stakes legal fight to enact this historic legislation and hold politicians accountable for the wars they start. Weisbord, a key drafter of the law for the International Criminal Court, takes listeners behind the scenes of one of the most consequential legal dramas in modern international diplomacy. Drawing on in-depth interviews and his own invaluable insights, he sheds critical light on the motivations of the prosecutors, diplomats, and military strategists who championed the fledgling prohibition on unjust war-and those who tried to sink it. The power to try leaders for unjust war holds untold promise for the international order, but also great risk. In this incisive and vitally important book, Weisbord explains how judges in such cases can balance the imperatives of justice and peace, and how the fair prosecution of aggression can humanize modern statecraft.

The Land of Flickering Lights: Restoring America in an Age of Broken Politics Audiobook

The Land of Flickering Lights: Restoring America in an Age of Broken Politics

Author: Michael Bennet Narrator: Michael Bennet Release Date: June 2019

The Land of Flickering Lights is a unique contribution to American political writing at this or any other time. Democratic Senator Michael Bennet from Colorado lifts a veil on Congress to reveal, in his words, 'through a series of actual stories-about the people, the politics, the motives, the money, the hypocrisy, the stakes, the outcome-the pathological culture of the capitol and the consequences for us all.' Bennet eloquently chronicles the dramatic full stories behind five debates and decisions crucial to all Americans: the highly politicized nominations and appointments of judges at all levels; the recent tax cut that massively increased our debt and financial inequality across the country; the shredding of the Iran nuclear deal that undermined our longstanding bipartisan approach to foreign policy; the corruption caused by money in politics and why it has caused inaction on climate change and much else; and the ugly sabotage by a minority of the 'Gang of Eight's' bi-partisan plan to reform our immigration policies, which would have resolved all the issues we currently face. By revealing how these decisions were truly made, Bennet sheds vital new light on each of these five crucial events and what Americans have lost in the process, illuminating how and why our government is at loggerheads today.
