The Barack Obama Miscellany - Hundreds of Fascinating Facts About America´s Great New President: Mark Hanks
The former Director of National Intelligence speaks out in this New York Times bestseller When he stepped down in January 2017 as the fourth United States Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper had been President Obama´s senior intelligence advisor for six and a half years, longer than his three predecessors combined. He led the US Intelligence Community through a period that included the raid on Osama bin Laden, the Benghazi attack, the leaks of Edward Snowden, and Russia´s influence operation on the 2016 U.S election. In Facts and Fears, Clapper traces his career through the growing threat of cyberattacks, his relationships with Presidents and Congress, and the truth about Russia´s role in the presidential election. He describes, in the wake of Snowden and WikiLeaks, his efforts to make intelligence more transparent and to push back against the suspicion that Americans´ private lives are subject to surveillance. Finally, it was living through Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and seeing how the foundations of American democracy were--and continue to be--undermined by a foreign power that led him to break with his instincts grown through more than five decades in the intelligence profession, to share his inside experience. Clapper considers such controversial questions as, is intelligence ethical? Is it moral to intercept communications or to photograph closed societies from orbit? What are the limits of what we should be allowed to do? What protections should we give to the private citizens of the world, not to mention our fellow Americans? Is there a time that intelligence officers can lose credibility as unbiased reporters of hard truths by asserting themselves into policy decisions? Facts and Fears offers a privileged look inside the United States intelligence community and addresses with the frankness and professionalism for which James Clapper is known some of the most difficult challenges in our nation´s history.

First, I like his personality, even though I disagree with many of his ideas. Second, I strongly believe that he loves this country, which is my son Benecdael´s country too. Third, he is funny and serious about his ideology. Furthermore, I love people no matter what their race, their ideology, and their faith are. Moreover, I think that he is a courageous man. Finally, he has an incredible impact on his fans, although I disagree with him in many things.According to Rush, things are falling apart in the White House because they are working on so many things at one time.I think that working on so many things at one time, if based on a well-organized plan, will not fail. I base this on the fact that Obama took the Oval Office at a time when so many things were going wrong. For example, the economic downturn, job losses, high gas prices, two wars.... 1.

Conquest, Famine, War, Death: the four horsemen are coming, in the form of the national debt, widespread dependence on government, turmoil in the Middle East, and the expansion of the bureaucratic state. In Obama’s Four Horsemen, syndicated columnist David Harsanyi takes a provocative look at how the Obama Administration allowed four big problems to mushroom into looming disasters we can no longer avoid or postpone. In his famous conversational, fact-driven, and humorous tone, Harsanyi argues that President Obama’s handling of both domestic and foreign crises has set the stage for a disaster of Biblical proportions. Under Obama, America has become a land of more dependence, more hand-outs, more federal programs, and more government agencies. The great danger is that Americans have gotten used to it. Many people today expect, as a matter of fact, that the government will hand them health insurance, student loans, birth control, and anything else they might need or desire while they are increasingly numb to the pernicious creep of the bureaucratic state and the alarming escalation of unsustainable spending and debt. Meanwhile, powerful forces abroad seek to destroy American and Western culture while Obama has sat on his thumbs and looked the other way, tossing out politically correct platitudes when asked about his response to their open threats and aggression. America is facing a time of great upheaval, domestic and global. Obama’s Four Horseman is a provocative exposé on how we got here, and a chilling prediction of what’s to come. 1. Language: English.

The audiobook that debunks, in compelling detail, the phony media narrative that Barack Obama had a ´´scandal-free´´ presidency. ´´I´m proud of the fact that [...] we´re probably the first administration in modern history that hasn´t had a major scandal in the White House.´´ So President Barack Obama boldly declared before leaving office, and numerous times since. But is it true? Not according to Matt Margolis, best-selling co-author of The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama. Margolis lays out the details of literally dozens of Obama administration scandals that have been ignored, downplayed, or covered-up by the mainstream media. From ´´Fast and Furious´´, to the illegal IRS targeting of conservative groups, to the recent NSA spying outrage, Margolis makes a powerful case that the Obama years represented nearly a decade of lawless and abusive governance. While Obama and his allies attempt to spin the narrative that his presidency represented a time of pristine politics, it´s critically important that Americans understand the truth - Barack Obama brought to Washington corrupt Chicago machine politics of cronyism and corporate payoffs, combined with audacious Alinskyite tactics aimed at dividing Americans and destroying his opponents. Obama´s legacy will be discussed and debated for decades. But in the early months after he left office, more scandals have been uncovered - most notably an illegal scheme of using the NSA to spy on his political opponents and the frightening decision to block the prosecution of Iranian-backed terrorists. Far from being a virtuous New Camelot, the Obama administration abused its power like few others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Cefalos.

Political analyst and Democratic campaign veteran Mark Hannah gives Barack Obama the victory lap he deserves in this compendium that takes the president´s critics head-on and celebrates the president´s many underappreciated triumphs. Barack Obama´s election in 2008 was a watershed moment in American history that inspired supporters on the Left - and fired up enemies on the Right. Elected in the midst of multiple crises - a Wall Street meltdown that imperiled the global economy and American troops entangled in two foreign wars - Barack Obama´s presidency promised from the start to be one of the most consequential presidencies in modern American history. Although he stabilized the economy and restored America´s prestige on the global stage, President Obama has been denied the credit he deserves, receiving instead acidic commentary from political opponents such as former vice president Dick Cheney, who declared that Obama was ´´the worst president in [his] lifetime´´ - an accusation that reflects the politics of resentment and recrimination that has come to characterize the president´s critics. In The Best Worst President, Mark Hannah swiftly and systematically debunks conservative lies and disinformation meant to negate the president´s accomplishments and damage his reputation - baseless charges too often left unchallenged by the national media. The Best Worst President is a whip-smart takedown of these half truths and hypocrisies, each refuted in a smart, witty, fact-based style. Hannah not only defends the president but showcase his administration´s most surprising and underappreciated triumphs - making clear he truly is the best ´´worst president´´ our nation has ever known. 1.

In the wake of tragic shootings in Newtown and Aurora, the anti-gun lobby has launched a campaign of lies, distortion, misrepresentation, and emotional manipulation that is breathtaking in its vitriol and its denial of basic facts. Their goal is to take away our Second Amendment rights and then disarm law-abiding Americans. Emily Miller tells her personal story of how being a single, female victim of a home invasion drove her to try to obtain a legally registered gun in Washington, D.C. The narrative - sometimes shocking, other times hilarious in its absurdity - gives the listener a real-life understanding of how gun-control laws only make it more difficult for honest, law-abiding people to get guns, while violent crime continues to rise. Using facts and newly uncovered research, Miller exposes the schemes politicians on Capitol Hill, in the White House, and around the country are using to deny people their Second Amendment rights. She exposes the myths that gun grabbers and liberal media use to get new laws passed that infringe on our right to keep and bear arms. The gun rights debate isn´t just about firearms. It´s about protecting a fundamental right that is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. It´s about politicians who lie, manipulate, and outright break existing laws to get what they want. It´s about President Obama wanting a bigger federal government to control you. Not just your guns - you. The fight for gun rights is the fight for freedom. Emily Miller says stand up and fight back now because your Second Amendment will only be the first to go. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carla Mercer-Meyer.
