Effective Public Speaking in Political Leadership: Barack Obama: Domingos Eurico Gonçalves
CIA case officer, Kent Clizbe, analyzes counter-intelligence details to demonstrate that KGB covert influence agents in American education and academia, Hollywood, and the media inserted the anti-American payload that became ´Political Correctness´ (PC). The KGB officers suffered death in Stalin´s purges. Their American willing accomplices, not needing guidance, built the elite mindset of ´´reflexive loathing of the United States and its people,´´ that defines PC. In 2008, America elected its first PC President. Obama ran on a barely concealed platform of PC loathing of America and its people. Now we see the results. Willing Accomplices provides the foundation for critical consideration of the roots of the PC-Progressive political platform and its dire consequences in 21st century America. 1. Language: English.

Derided by the Right as dangerous and by the Left as spineless, Barack Obama puzzles observers. In Reading Obama, James T. Kloppenberg reveals the sources of Obama´s ideas and explains why his principled aversion to absolutes does not fit contemporary partisan categories. Obama´s commitments to deliberation and experimentation derive from sustained engagement with American democratic thought. In a new preface, Kloppenberg explains why Obama has stuck with his commitment to compromise in the first three years of his presidency, despite the criticism it has provoked. Reading Obama traces the origins of his ideas and establishes him as the most penetrating political thinker elected to the presidency in the past century. Kloppenberg demonstrates the influences that have shaped Obama´s distinctive worldview, including Nietzsche and Niebuhr, Ellison and Rawls, and recent theorists engaged in debates about feminism, critical race theory, and cultural norms. Examining Obama´s views on the Constitution, slavery and the Civil War, the New Deal, and the civil rights movement, Kloppenberg shows Obama´s sophisticated understanding of American history. Obama´s interest in compromise, reasoned public debate, and the patient nurturing of civility is a sign of strength, not weakness, Kloppenberg argues. He locates its roots in Madison, Lincoln, and especially in the philosophical pragmatism of William James and John Dewey, which nourished generations of American progressives, black and white, female and male, through much of the 20th century, albeit with mixed results. Reading Obama reveals the sources of Obama´s commitment to democratic deliberation: the books he has read, the visionaries who have inspired him, the social movements and personal struggles that have shaped his thinking. Kloppenberg shows that Obama´s positions on social justice, religion, race, family, and America´s role in the world do not stem from a desire to please everyone b 1. Language: English.
