This timely book focuses on President Obama´s deeply considered strategy toward Iran´s nuclear program and reveals how the historic agreement of 2015 broke the persistent stalemate in negotiations that had blocked earlier efforts. The deal accomplished two major feats in one stroke: it averted the threat of war with Iran and prevented the possibility of an Iranian nuclear bomb. Trita Parsi, a Middle East foreign policy expert who advised the Obama White House throughout the talks and had access to decision-makers and diplomats on the US and Iranian sides alike, examines every facet of a triumph that could become as important and consequential as Nixon´s rapprochement with China. Drawing from more than 75 in-depth interviews with key decision-makers, including Iran´s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry, this is the first authoritative account of President Obama´s signature foreign policy achievement. 1.

The old adage, "never discuss religion and politics"; is roundly rejected in this incisive exploration of presidential history and religious faith. This newly updated 2016 edition of The Presidents & Their Faith is a fascinating and informative look at how all US presidents exercised their personal faith, exerted presidential power, and led a religiously diverse nation. Has there ever been a stranger prayer than Truman´s, offered upon America´s successful development of the atom bomb: "We pray that he may guide us to use it in his ways and for his purposes"? At the nation´s founding, Northeast Presbyterians demanded explicit mention of Jesus in the Constitution. George Washington refuted them, saying that religious piety "was a matter best left between an individual and his god; religious instruction was the responsibility of religious societies, not the civil state." What drove Washington to make that argument, and what if he had lost? Who wouldn´t feel like the exasperated FDR when he said, "I can do almost everything in the ´Goldfish Bowl´ of the President´s life, but I´ll be hanged if I can say my prayers in it. It bothers me to feel like something in the zoo being looked at by all the tourists in Washington when I go to church...No privacy in that kind of going to church, and by the time I have gotten into that pew and settled down with everybody looking at me, I don´t feel like saying my prayers at all." But even more importantly, what´s real, what´s a show, and why does it matter when it comes to faith and politics? These questions and more are unpacked and examined, leading to a whole new understanding of how religion and politics interfaced through America´s history, and how they will play out in our future. 1.

For over 10 years, Amber Cummings endured unspeakable abuse from her husband James. Isolated in their quiet seaside home in Maine, Amber suffered through verbal abuse, physical assaults, and marital rape. Her husband James was a foaming-at-the-mouth psychopath, a neo-Nazi who was plotting to set off a dirty bomb during Obama´s Washington D.C. inauguration. It was his addiction to child pornography, however, that finally pushed Amber to the edge and brought her protective maternal to bear. Seeing no other way out, she had to protect her daughter from the monster she had married... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sangita Chauhan.

Präsident Barack Obama ist tot, durch eine Bombe in Berlin in Stücke gerissen. Kaum ist George T. Gilles als Nachfolger ins Amt eingeführt, überschlagen sich die Ereignisse. Zunächst landet der abgetrennte Kopf eines im Irak entführten Zivilisten im Weißen Haus. Dann bricht nach einem Anschlag in New York Panik aus und die vier noch lebenden Ex-Präsidenten geraten ins Visier eines unbekannten Gegners. Zu spät erkennt die neue Administration, was eigentlich vor sich geht. Einem seltsamen Erpresserschreiben, welches die Räumung sämtlicher US-Militärbasen in Übersee zur Forderung hat, will Washington zunächst keinen Glauben schenken. Erst als Mark Spacy, Operationsleiter der regierungsnahen und ultrageheimen National Underwater & Space Agency, auf einen Zusammenhang zwischen den Anschlägen und den rätselhaften Toden einiger NASA-Top-Astronauten hinweist, gibt der Präsident sein Einverständnis für ein waghalsiges Geheimkommando. In einem verwirrenden Katz-und-Maus-Spiel zu Wasser, zu Lande und in der Luft beginnt eine mörderische Treibjagd auf die Hintermänner einer komplexen Verschwörung, die bis in höchste Regierungskreise hinauf reicht. Der in die Enge getriebene Präsident sieht sich gezwungen DEFCON ONE zu befehligen, die maximale Einsatzbereitschaft der Streitkräfte... ´´Defcon One - Angriff auf Amerika´´ erreicht mit seiner kompletten Untermalung durch Musik und Effekte sowie des Changierens des Sprechers in mehr als fünfzig Rollen nahezu Hörspielcharakter. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Christoph Nolte. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acti/000002/bk_acti_000002_sample.mp3. Digitales Hörbuch im AAX Format.

Grant Park , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 924min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Grant Park begins in 1968, with Martin Luther King´s final days in Memphis. The story then moves to the eve of the 2008 election and cuts between the two eras as it unfolds. Disillusioned columnist Malcolm Toussaint, fueled by yet another report of unarmed black men killed by police, hacks into his newspaper´s server to post an incendiary column that had been rejected by his editors. Toussaint then disappears, and his longtime editor, Bob Carson, is summarily fired within hours of the column´s publication. While a furious Carson tries to find Toussaint - at the same time dealing with the reappearance of a lost love from his days as a ´60s activist - Toussaint is abducted by two improbable but still dangerous white supremacists plotting to explode a bomb at Obama´s planned rally in Grant Park. Toussaint and Carson are forced to remember the choices they made as idealistic, impatient young men, when both their lives were changed profoundly by their work in the civil rights movement. 1.

Tod per Knopfdruck: Das wahre Ausmaß des US-Dro...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

116 zivile Drohnentote laut US-Administration.1.427 zivile Drohnentote laut dem Bureau of Investigative Journalism. 6.000 und mehr Drohnentote, die laut ehemaligen US-Militärs ´´unrechtmäßig´´ getötet wurden. Seit Beginn des ´´War on Terror´´ gehören US-Drohnen-Angriffe in Afghanistan, Irak, Pakistan, Somalia und vielen anderen Ländern zum Alltag. Allein in seinem letzten Amtsjahr autorisierte Friedensnobelpreisträger Barack Obama den Abwurf von 26.172 Bomben. Dabei wird die Anzahl der zivilen Opfer, die sogenannten ´´Kollateralschäden´´, schlicht menschenverachtend heruntergespielt. Laut Whistleblowern, aber auch dem Bureau of Investigative Journalism oder ziviler Organisationen, die den Opfern im Internet gedenken, liegt die Anzahl der Toten um ein Vielfaches über den offiziellen Zahlen der US-Administration. Wie aber gelingt es den Verantwortlichen, das wahre Ausmaß dieser Katastrophe so herunterzuspielen? Welche Interessen stecken hinter diesen Angriffen? Und welche Rolle spielt Deutschland dabei? Emran Feroz reiste zur Recherche unter anderem in Kriegsregionen und sprach mit jenen, die von den ´´Todesengeln´´, wie die Drohnen von den Betroffenen genannt werden, tagtäglich terrorisiert werden. 1.
