Divider-in-Chief: The Fraud of Hope and Change ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When Barack Obama ran on a platform of "hope and change" four years ago, he promised to unite the country. But as Kate Obenshain reveals in Divider-in-Chief, Obama has done exactly the opposite. Rather than seeking common sense, pro-American solutions, he has pursued far-left policies, a radical leftist agenda, and an attitude that’s both condescending and dismissive of Main Street America. As a result, America has become a nation of even greater polarization and disillusionment. In Divider-in-Chief, Obenshain exposes how Obama pushed for the HHS mandate, forcing people of faith to violate their conscience; how Obama has condoned the actions of Occupy Wall Street, saying, "You are the reason I ran for office," while he vilifies free markets and businessmen across America; how Obama seizes on opportunities to highlight racial discord and then accuses any critic of being "a racist"; and that, although Obama ran as a champion for the downtrodden, the unemployment rate is disproportionately high among minorities and women. Obenshain paints a picture of a president who promotes class warfare, aggravating racial, gender, and economic differences in order to advance his ideological agenda. Searing and controversial, Divider-in-Chief makes the case that we must defeat Barack Obama before he tears our nation apart. Kate Obenshain, a rising star in the conservative movement, was the chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia and is now the vice president of the Young America’s Foundation and a respected board member of the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute. She travels across the country speaking on college campuses, at Tea Party rallies, and special events. She is also a regular Fox News contributor and has appeared on numerous cable news shows. 1.

Going Red: The Two Million Voters Who Will Elec...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The 2016 election is conservatives' last, best chance to take back the country. So how can they win? The answer, conservative columnist and analyst Ed Morrissey says, depends on seven battleground counties in swing states Republicans must win. Each county pulled for Obama in one or both of the last two elections, but after eight years of misadventures under the Obama administration, the door is open for Republicans to win them - and the presidency - once again, making a decisive mandate against progressivism for the generation to come. In Going Red, Morrissey takes listeners inside the battlegrounds that will decide the election, weaving together data and the stories of people and leaders in these communities to answer the most pressing questions facing conservatives in 2016: What went wrong in 2008 and 2012, and how can the party do better in 2016? Can Republicans take back crucial swing states like Florida, Ohio, and Virginia? Is a Hillary Clinton victory really inevitable? How can conservatives reverse their track record with minorities and young voters? Providing an unparalleled look into the campaign and the thinking of experts from both parties, Going Red is a field guide for taking back the White House and an essential book for anyone who cares about the fate of the Right. 1.

The Securitization of Climate Change: Australia...
74,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines how the armed forces of the United States and Australia have responded to the threat posed by climate change to national security. Drawing on established securitisation frameworks (‘Copenhagen’ and ‘Paris’ Schools), the author uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative techniques to systematically examine more than 3,500 speeches, policies and doctrinal articles since 2003. Importantly, the author undertakes an examination of the intersection between the political and the military spheres, probing the question of how ideology has influenced the military’s uptake on the issue. In this context, the author identifies the difficulty of an ostensibly apolitical institution responding to what has become both a hyper-political issue and an unprecedented security threat. A close examination of the key political actors – their intent, outlook and political mandate for broader climate action – is therefore crucial to understanding the policy freedom and constraints within which military leaders operate. The book consists of eight chapters divided into four parts, focusing on: perspectives and methodological insights; empirical case studies; case study comparison; and concluding observations. • Offers a rare and systematic examination of military climate policy by a military officer from Australia• Identifies a divergence of Australian military climate policy from that of the US military during the Obama Administration• Develops a unique method that quantifies climate security, enabling a graphical representation for quick and ready reference ideally suited to policy-makers

America Is Now a Socialistic Country

The IRS must be replaced The IRS is not producing the revenues needed to grow our economy. The fact that more poor and lower income Americans pay little or no taxes and the rich and big business have tax loopholes, plus the growing number of Americans who don't even file any income taxes, compiled with many tax cheaters - it's little wonder why federal revenues are declining when they should be increasing. We also have a growing underground economy in America as more and more Americans and illegals are dealing with cash only and not paying any income taxes. This underground economy is at least $500 billion a year. We must have a national consumption tax (aka national volume added or national sales tax) as of Jan. 1, 2011. We can make it 10 percent on everything. Five percent of this national consumption tax goes to the federal government and five percent goes to the states to pay for the unfunded mandates the federal government passes. Also, as of 2011, the IRS should cut IRS taxes in half and make them much more simple. In a year or two, if the national consumer tax increases federal and state revenues, we can double it to 20 percent and nearly eliminate the IRS. A national value added sales tax will let America receive revenues from goods sold in America by slave labor countries and eliminate the cash-only underground economy. Whereas I suggest that the states receive 50 percent of the revenue received by a national sales tax (aka value added tax) the states could collect and monitor this tax. With the exception of two or three states with no sales tax, they could implement and enforce this consumption tax with a few new employees. We must financially help the states because a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Health care bill is not funded President Obama said, 'This health care legislation will be the greatest legislation since Roosevelt passed the Social Security Act.' However, unlike Social Security, it is an unfunded mandate which exceeds the ability of big and small businesses to pay for. It is a socialistic boondoggle incognito. It is my opinion that big business and small business cannot afford to pay for health insurance for the many Americans whom they employ. The health care bill will cause more unemployment in America.

Delivering the People's Message
200,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Presidents have long invoked electoral mandates to justify the use of executive power. In Delivering the People's Message, Julia R. Azari draws on an original dataset of more than 1,500 presidential communications, as well as primary documents from six presidential libraries, to systematically examine choices made by presidents ranging from Herbert Hoover in 1928 to Barack Obama during his 2008 election. Azari argues that Ronald Reagan's election in 1980 marked a shift from the modern presidency formed by Franklin Delano Roosevelt to what she identifies as a more partisan era for the presidency. This partisan model is a form of governance in which the president appears to require a popular mandate in order to manage unruly and deeply contrary elements within his own party and succeed in the face of staunch resistance from the opposition party. Azari finds that when the presidency enjoys high public esteem and party polarization is low, mandate rhetoric is less frequent and employs broad themes. By contrast, presidents turn to mandate rhetoric when the office loses legitimacy, as in the wake of Watergate and Vietnam and during periods of intense polarization. In the twenty-first century, these two factors have converged. As a result, presidents rely on mandate rhetoric to defend their choices to supporters and critics alike, simultaneously creating unrealistic expectations about the electoral promises they will be able to fulfill.

A School in Trouble
23,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

During and after his term as interim Central Falls superintendent in 2006-2007, Bill Holland sought answers to why some Central Falls High School students had school success while over half of their classmates failed to graduate. Much can be learned from how these students survived in a chronically low-achieving school located in the poorest community in the state. Holland provides behind-the-scenes details on the issues of poverty, ineffective teaching, and cultural differences while also advising students, parents, and teachers on ways to gain greater educational success. Before the book was completed, a federal and state mandate unexpectedly resulted in the superintendent having to adopt a turn-around model and fire the entire high school faculty and staff-an action that set off a firestorm between the school and state leadership and the American Federation of Teachers. The conflict made national headlines and was mentioned by President Obama as a prime example of a 'last resort' approach in reforming failing inner-city schools.

Global Agriculture and the American Farmer
18,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The United States is one of the world's largest producers and exporters of a range of agricultural commodities, and the largest provider of foreign assistance, so U.S. policies have big effects on global food security and other global public goods linked to agriculture. On the positive side of the ledger, President Obama created the Feed the Future aid initiative to promote agricultural development in poorer countries as a tool to achieve the global goals of ending hunger and extreme poverty, which are mostly rural. But that generosity is undercut by U.S. support for farmers that distorts global markets and ignores negative spillovers for the rest of the world. In this book, Elliott focuses on three policy areas that are particularly damaging for developing countries: traditional agricultural subsidy and trade policies that support the incomes of American farmers at the expense of farmers elsewhere; the biofuels mandate, which in its current form increases market volatility while doing little if anything to mitigate climate change; and weak regulation of antibiotic use in livestock, which contributes to the global spread of drug-resistant super bugs. While noting that broad reforms are needed to fix these problems, Elliott also identifies practical steps that U.S. policymakers could take in the relatively short run to improve farm policies-for American taxpayers and consumers as well as for the poor and vulnerable in developing countries.
