Who can stop the violent black man? He murders children, murders his ex-girlfriends and wives, and then cries inequality. The United States government´s remedy of incarcerating black men is not the answer for saving them. Everyday a black man is dying by the hands and gun of another black person, and redirecting them toward positive choices will save us all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rafael Osaba.

Barack Obama: The Movement for Change tells the story of a visionary leader who refuses to be limited by America´s history and determines instead to change it.His plan for change is the latest expression of a movement for justice: a movement that has swept forward with the collective energy of great leaders like Martin Luther King, Robert F Kennedy, Lyndon B Johnson, and countless others who have bent the ´arc of morality´ towards justice. Barack Obama: The Movement for Change tells a story for our times. It is not the story of a single man. It is the story of a movement and of the people who drove the movement forward. It is a new American story that will cascade down the generations. America has changed and Barack Obama´s story tells us how and why and what we can expect. 1. Language: English.

This shit would be really interesting if we weren´t in the middle of it.--Barack Obama, September 2008 In 2008, the presidential election became blockbuster entertainment. Everyone was watching as the race for the White House unfolded like something from the realm of fiction. The meteoric rise and historic triumph of Barack Obama.... The shocking fall of the House of Clinton - and the improbable resurrection of Hillary as Obama´s partner and America´s face to the world.... The mercurial performance of John McCain and the mesmerizing emergence of Sarah Palin. But despite the wall-to-wall media coverage of this spellbinding drama, remarkably little of the real story behind the headlines has yet been told. In Game Change, John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, two of the country´s leading political reporters, use their unrivaled access to pull back the curtain on the Obama, Clinton, McCain, and Palin campaigns. How did Obama convince himself that, despite the thinness of his résumé, he could somehow beat the odds to become the nation´s first African-American president? How did the tumultuous relationship between the Clintons shape - and warp - Hillary´s supposedly unstoppable bid? What was behind her husband´s furious outbursts and devastating political miscalculations? Why did McCain make the novice governor of Alaska his running mate? And was Palin merely painfully out of her depth - or troubled in more serious ways? Game Change answers those questions and more, laying bare the secret history of the 2008 campaign. This is a reportorial tour de force that reads like a fast-paced novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis Boutsikaris.

We Are the Change We Seek is a collection of Barack Obama´s 26 greatest addresses: beginning with his 2002 speech opposing the Iraq War and closing with his final speech before the United Nations in September 2016. As president, Obama´s words had the power to move the country, and often the world, as few presidents before him. Whether acting as Commander in Chief or Consoler in Chief, Obama adopted a unique rhetorical style that could simultaneously speak to the national mood and change the course of public events. Obama´s eloquence, both written and spoken, propelled him to national prominence and ultimately made it possible for the son of a Kenyan man and a white woman from Kansas to become the first black president of the United States. These speeches span Obama´s career - from his time in state government through to the end of his tenure as president - and the issues most important to our time: war, inequality, race relations, gun violence and human rights. The book opens with an essay placing Obama´s oratorical contributions within the flow of American history by E. J. Dionne Jr., columnist and author of Why the Right Went Wrong, and Joy Reid, the host of AM Joy on MSNBC and author of Fracture. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. D. Jackson.

Voters can do nothing until they have the facts - the hard, cold, true facts, and that is what Hugh Hewitt provides in The Brief Against Obama: The Rise, Fall & Epic Fail of the Hope & Change Presidency. Hugh makes the case that Obama´s has been a disastrous presidency, a fiasco in fact, and reveals the president to be a wholly unprepared and incapable-of-learning ideologue whose nearly every move has been wrong, and whose almost every decision has been ill-conceived and poorly executed. But for the SEALs´ dispatch of bin Laden and the military´s removal of al-Awalki and other terrorists - whom the president still seeks to remove from Gitmo to domestic courts in the United States - Obama would be wholly without anything to claim as an achievement of his time in the Oval Office. In addition to the monumental failures of Obamacare, the soaring unemployment rate, the 2009 ´´stimulus´´ and the massive debt, Hugh Hewitt examines the scores and scores of broken promises and fraudulent forecasts, dozens of dodges and hundreds of disastrous innovations that President Obama has inflicted on America. It has been a reign of incompetency not before seen in the country - ever. According to Hewitt, President Obama is not just a failed president, but the most spectacularly failed president of modern times, and Hewitt´s precise and lawyerly indictment is made to help the American people see what has happened, and what desperately needs to be done in the upcoming election. The path for the American people is clear and urgent: Barack Obama mustn´t be allowed to run the country into the ground as the Commander-in-Chief for four more years. 1. Language: English.

Much has been said about global warming and climate change. There are, of course, both the proponents and the opponents of this environmental theory and both vigorous debate their ideological viewpoint with equal vigor. And now the debate has reached a truly global stage the United Nations, and none other than the Vatican´s Pope Francis himself have infused much of their energy and time debating the merits of deforestation and greenhouse gases. In the wake of the pope´s monumental Apocalyptic Encyclical on climate change, this audiobook seeks to present both of the sides of the debate, but not only that, it seeks to invoke the thoughts of the listener so that after ingesting so much energy and theories around the subject they can create their own interpretation of this complicated and multifaceted topic of global warming and climate change! Some topics covered are: Homeostasis of the Earth: Can our planet heal itself? The Al Gore debate: Science or sci-fi? Global warming or Global cooling? Who is responsible? Can we survive? Business as usual: A vision of the future! Environmental justice Biodiversity 1. Language: English. Narrator: Trevor Clinger.
