Can Saul Alinsky Be Saved?:Jesus Christ in the Obama and Post-Obama Era Richard William Bledsoe
America´s number one citizen Ralph Nader´s latest book tells us how unchecked corporate power has led to the wrecking ball that is the Trump presidency. Nader brings together the outrages of the Trump administration with the key flaws and failures of the previous administrations - both Republican and Democratic - that have led our nation to its current precipice.It´s all in the details, and Ralph Nader knows them all. Trump didn´t come out of nowhere. Bush and Obama led the way. Writing as a Washington, D.C., activist and people´s advocate for over 50 years - someone who has saved more lives and caused more impactful legislation to be enacted than almost any sitting president or legislator - Nader tells us how Trump´s crimes and misdemeanors followed the path of no resistance of the Obama, Bush, and Clinton regimes, which ushered in the extreme rise of corporate power and the abandonment of the poor and middle classes. 1.

An unassailable case that, in the eyes of history, Barack Obama will be viewed as one of America´s best and most accomplished presidents. Over the course of eight years, Barack Obama has amassed an array of outstanding achievements. His administration saved the American economy from collapse, expanded health insurance to millions who previously could not afford it, negotiated an historic nuclear deal with Iran, helped craft a groundbreaking international climate accord, reined in Wall Street, and crafted a new vision of racial progress. He has done all of this despite a Left that frequently disdained him as a sellout and a hysterical Right that did everything possible to destroy his agenda even when they agreed with what he was doing. Now, as the page turns to our next commander in chief, Jonathan Chait - acclaimed as one of the most incisive and meticulous political commentators in America - digs deep into Obama´s record on major policy fronts - economics, the environment, domestic reform, health care, race, foreign policy, and civil rights - to demonstrate why history will judge our 44th president as among the greatest in history. Audacity does not shy away from Obama´s failures, most notably in foreign policy. Yet Chait convincingly shows that President Obama has accomplished what candidate Obama said he would, despite overwhelming opposition - and that the hopes of those who voted for him have not been dashed despite the smokescreen of extremist propaganda and the limits of short-term perspective. 1.

The Left is bulldozing through American history. We the People are the only ones who can stop them. America is on the verge of another Civil War. Socialism is on the rise. Free Speech is under assault. People of Faith are facing persecution. Gun owners are in the crosshairs. Our public schools have been turned into indoctrination centers. A leftist mob made up of socialist politicians, academic elites, raging feminists, and effete Pajama Boys has partnered with Antifa, illegal aliens, and other radical groups to finish what President Obama started-a fundamental transformation of our nation. Can America be saved? Political columnist, commentator, author, and radio host Todd Starnes addresses this issue and more in Culture Jihad. He believes that if good-hearted patriots rise up together we can stop the jihad. It is possible to keep America great.

13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi | Summary and Analysis Book preview: The controversy surrounding these attacks began as soon as news reports were known to the world. There are many questions that to this day still haven´t been answered. Why were the pleas for more security not answered? Who is to blame for the lack of security at the compound? Were these security issues to blame for the deaths of Chris Stevens and Sean Smith? During the attack, why was the team at the annex held for so long? Would a quicker response have saved the lives of the fallen men? After the attacks, was there a cover-up by the State Department to hide who really was to blame for these attacks? Obama and Clinton claim that the movie Innocence of Muslims, along with the already volatile situation in Benghazi, triggered the attacks. They denied any reports that al-Qaeda played any major role in orchestrating what happened. The Senate Intelligence Committee, which was part of the investigation, noted in its report that the situation could have been prevented had the State Department granted the requests for more security.

Andy Puzder, the former CEO of Carl´s Jr. and Hardee´s, says that ´´capitalism´´ is not a dirty word, and thankfully President Trump understands this; his pro-business policies will bring back economic growth and secure our future. As a successful CEO in the restaurant industry, Andy Puzder uniquely understands how important the profit motive is to our country´s ultimate prosperity. Furthermore, as the grandson of immigrants, the son of a car salesman, and someone who worked his way up from earning minimum wage to running an international business, he has a first-hand view of how America´s exceptional capitalist spirit can lift everyone to success. In 2016, the American people faced a stark choice between two very different presidential candidates. Hillary Clinton spent most of her adult life involved in politics and promised to uphold and advance the progressive legacy of President Barack Obama who had first won the White House on promises to ´´spread the wealth around.´´ Donald Trump, on the other hand, came from the business world, was an unapologetic capitalist, used his own personal wealth as inspiration, and promised simply to ´´Make America Great Again.´´ By choosing Trump over Clinton, the American people put a stop to decades of government expansion under progressive leadership, and they might just have saved our economy by doing so. America was once a land where everyone was encouraged to seek their fortune - the more prosperous our citizens, the more our whole society could in turn prosper. But leftist forces in the United States have been seeking to tarnish the pursuit of prosperity and to paint profit as an evil motivation fit only for greedy plutocrats. Andrew Puzder understands this first-hand after a progressive smear campaign stopped him from joining President Trump´s cabinet. As Puzder explains in his new book, The Capitalist Comeback, this was an act of desperation from a left wing 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Edward Thomas.

La increíble e inspiradora historia de una joven extraordinaria. «Yusra, no podríamos estar más orgullosos de tu valor, tu resistencia y el gran ejemplo que das.».-Barack Obama. En verano de 2015, Yusra, de diecisiete años, y su hermana mayor Sara huyeron de su casa en Siria arrasada por las bombas. Desde Damasco emprendieron un peligroso viaje hacia la costa de Turquía, donde consiguieron subir a un pequeño bote con otras veinte personas dispuestas a todo para llegar a Europa. Llevaban treinta minutos de travesía cuando el motor se detuvo y estuvieron a punto de volcar. En ese momento, Yusra, Sara y otras dos personas se tiraron al mar para aligerar la carga. Yusra y Sara eran las únicas que sabían nadar y durante más de tres horas fueron las que guiaron la barca hasta las costas de Lesbos, salvando la vida del resto de los pasajeros. En aquel momento nadie podía imaginar que un año después, Yusra Mardini competiría como nadadora en los Juegos Olímpicos de Río. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The inspiring story of how one woman saved fellow refugees from drowning?and how she went on to become an Olympic swimmer. When young Syrian refugee Yusra Mardini realized her boat´s engine shut down as she was traveling from Syria to Greece with other refugees, there was no hesitation: she dove into the water. Surfacing, she heard desperate prayers and sobbing from the passengers in the sinking boat above her. Between the waves, her elder sister Sarah screamed at her to get back on the boat. But Mardini was determined. She was not going to let Sarah do this alone. Grabbing the rope with one hand, she began kicking up the black water, inching the boat towards the distant shore. This bold act of bravery saved the lives of a boatload of refugees heading to Turkey from Syria. After her arrival in Greece, Mardini, focused and undeterred, worked toward a lifelong goal: to compete in the Olympics. She succeeded, and competed in 2016 on the Refugee Olympic Team in Rio de Janeiro. Butterfly tells her story, from Syria to the Olympics to her current work with the UN as a Goodwill Ambassador. Mardini is eager to tell her story in the hopes that readers will remember that refugees are ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, chased from their homes by a devastating war. In today´s political climate, this story is guaranteed to inspire and educate readers from every background.
