Now that the Republicans have taken the House, How can they use their majority to reverse Obama's socialist agenda? Revolt! lays out a game plan for success. Dick Morris and Eileen McGann explain how to use the debt limit and budget fights to force Obama to accept Republican policies while, at the same time, undermining his chances of victory in 2012. Obamacare? Morris and McGann explain how to block the IRS enforcement of the requirement that everyone buy health insurance and how to stop the Medicare cuts and rationing. Crippling Talk Radio and Taking Over the Internet? They explain how to prevent the FCC from blocking free speech in America. Cap and Trade? They offer a blueprint for how to cut off EPA funding to stop it from imposing carbon taxes and regulation.

Conservatives need to fight back and Morris and McGann explain how to do it. Revolt! is their most important book yet. The GOP won the elections of 2010. Revolt! explains how to translate this avalanche of votes into power and action in Washington. Their plea: Don't surrender. Don't compromise. Don't give in. Just push ahead and win! 1.

In his blockbuster new book Rollback, New York Times best-selling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr., offers the first critical analysis of the 2010 midterm elections and answers the number-one question on conservatives’ minds: How do we roll back the liberal policies and big government programs that Obama/Pelosi/Reid rushed through Congress before the midterms? From getting rid of wasteful and inefficient federal agencies to abolishing the income tax to repealing health-care reform and all of Obama's "green" policies, Woods outlines a bold plan for dramatically overhauling the government and restoring our Founding Fathers' vision for America. 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.

Fed up with our arrogant federal government? Don’t want massive programs we don’t need and can’t afford? Then join the Red State Uprising! In his new book, RedState.com founder Erick Erickson clearly outlines what needs to change in Washington and what we can do locally to make it happen. Red State Uprising is not about anarchy or a revolution—it’s about reshaping government to maximize economic growth, individual liberty, and private property rights. Barack Obama has shown his determination to move the country towards a socialist “nanny” state, culminating in the government takeover of health care. The vast majority of Americans reject this vision, and Red State Uprising calls upon this majority to stand up and take action. There is a right size for government, Erikson argues, but it is much smaller, much cheaper, and much less intrusive than what we’ve got now. Red State Uprising offers conservatives a plan to take back the people’s government. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Chamberlain.

He's one of America's most capable, canny, candid, and independent financial experts. Now David M. Walker sounds a call to action. Comeback America is a tough-minded, innovative, inspiring guide to help us avoid the approaching economic abyss and put the country back on track again.As comptroller general of the United States and head of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) - "the nation's top auditor" - Walker warned Congress and the administration as the federal surplus became a giant deficit under George W. Bush. As president and CEO of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, he now works full-time to raise public awareness regarding mounting debt burdens being imposed on future generations. Comeback America is his crucial manifesto, a way for President Obama to end out-of-control government spending and reform our tax, retirement, health care, defense, and other systems - before it's too late.Walker believes that by 2030, absent significant reforms to current government programs and policies, federal taxes could double from current levels, meaning less money and poorer education for kids, which will hurt families along with our nation's economic strength and position in the world. If our foreign creditors - such as China - decide to buy fewer of our Treasury bonds, interest rates will rise and cars and homes will become less affordable.But it doesn't have to be that way. Comeback America shows how we can return to our founding principles of fiscal responsibility and stewardship for future generations. The book includes bold ideas to control spending, save Social Security, dramatically alter Medicare, and simplify the tax code - all taking into account the Obama administration's current efforts, which receive never-before-published assessments, both complimentary and critical.Nonpartisan, nonideological, and filled with a love of the country its esteemed author has spent his life serving, Comeback America/ 1.

With nearly 25 million citizens, a secretive totalitarian dictatorship, and active nuclear and ballistic missile weapons programs, North Korea presents some of the world's most difficult foreign policy challenges. For decades, the United States and its partners have employed multiple strategies in an effort to prevent Pyongyang from acquiring weapons of mass destruction. Washington has moved from the Agreed Framework under President Bill Clinton to George W. Bush's denunciation of the regime as part of the "axis of evil" to a posture of "strategic patience" under Barack Obama. Policy expert Walter C. Clemens Jr. argues that now is the time to reconsider US diplomatic efforts in North Korea. In North Korea and the World, Clemens poses the question, "Can, should, and must we negotiate with a regime we regard as evil?" Weighing the needs of all the stakeholders - including China, Japan, Russia, and South Korea - he concludes that the answer is yes. After assessing nine other policy options, he makes the case for engagement and negotiation with the regime. Grounded in philosophy and history, this volume offers a fresh road map for negotiators and outlines a grand bargain that balances both ethical and practical security concerns. The book is published by University Press of Kentucky. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andy Rose. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/092126/bk_acx0_092126_sample.mp3.

Psychotherapist Michael Pond is no stranger to the devastating consequences of alcoholism. He has helped hundreds of people conquer their addictions, but this knowledge did not prevent his own near-demise. In this riveting memoir, he recounts how he lost his practice, his home, and his family - all because of his drinking. After scores of visits to the ER, a tour of hellish recovery homes, a stint in intensive care for end-stage alcoholism, and jail, Pond devised his own personal plan for recovery. He met Maureen Palmer, and together, they investigated scientific alternatives to the rigid abstinence doctrine pushed by 12-step programs. "Pond's insights coupled with Palmer's section on evidence-based treatments make this an invaluable resource for readers battling their own addictions or concerned about their loved ones." (Publisher's Weekly) "A vividly written page-turner...gripping and helpful" (Gabor Maté, The Globe and Mail)"Few books have captured so well the challenge of managing the disease of addiction while simultaneously negotiating an often unresponsive health care system" (Dr. Keith Humphreys, former senior drug policy advisor, Obama administration)“With tactile intimacy and surgical wit, Pond invites us to share the tragedy of his addiction with a sad smile. And then reveals a singular truth about how people quit. Truly one of a kind...a masterful job of describing the indescribable.” (Dr. Marc Lewis, neuroscientist and author of Memoirs of an Addicted Brain) 1. Language: English.

In times of adversity, a strong voice to lead the people must emerge. In his new book, Newt Gingrich steps up to offer a bold plan to save America. In his blockbuster new book, To Save America, former Speaker of the House and best-selling author Newt Gingrich issues a dire warning for America. Gingrich argues that the big-spending, big-government programs and bureaucracies of the secular socialist Left are the greatest threat to our nation’s survival since the Civil War. By spending more than we can afford, sacrificing conservative values for the sake of easy answers, and electing the most liberal president ever, America is at risk for its very survival. The Obama administration is conspiring to transform our America of free enterprise, faith, and personal freedom into their America of endless bureaucracy, secularism, and state control—despite overwhelming opposition from the American people. “Our federal government is broken,” Gingrich states, “we must ‘replace, not reform’ our leaders and our policies.” Gingrich offers concrete strategies for dismantling the machine and replacing it with policies and institutions that work. Gingrich shows how Republicans can make a comeback in the 2010 mid-term elections and win the 2012 presidential election, and reveals how listeners can help restore our nation to its fundamental values. But we must act fast, Gingrich warns, or our children will inherit a secular, socialist America transformed beyond recognition. Fresh, inspiring, and resolute, To Save America is Gingrich’s most powerful book yet. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Newt Gingrich.
