Obstruction of Justice: How the Deep State Risked National Security to Protect the Democrats

Investigative reporter Luke Rosiak is being hailed as “one of the smartest, most diligent reporters in Washington” (TUCKER CARLSON) and “a bulldog” (DANA LOESCH) for uncovering “what is possibly the largest scandal and coverup in the history of the United States House of Representatives” (NEWT GINGRICH).  

It’s like something out of a spy novel: In the heat of the 2016 election, an unvetted Pakistani national with a proclivity for blackmail gained access to the computer files of one in five Democrats in the House of Representatives. He and his family lifted data off the House network, stole the identity of an intelligence specialist, and sent congressional electronic equipment to foreign officials. And that was only the beginning.

Rather than protect national security, Congress and the Justice Department schemed to cover up a politically inconvenient hack and an underlying fraud on Capitol Hill involving dozens of Democrats’ offices. Evidence disappeared, witnesses were threatened, and the supposed watchdogs in the media turned a blind eye.

Combining tenacious investigative reporting and high-tech investigative techniques, Luke Rosiak began ferreting out the truth, and found himself face to face with the “Deep State,” observing how Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats manipulated the Department of Justice, the media, and even Republican leadership to sabotage the investigation into what Newt Gingrich calls possibly the biggest congressional scandal in history.

Gun Violence Prevention?: The Politics Behind Policy Responses to School Shootings in the United States

$54.99 - $46.74

(as of Feb 22,2019 05:34:05 UTC – Details)


This book examines the gun-related policy responses to three school shooting incidents in the United States. Gun violence prevention activists and others involved in policy making were interviewed for the book, and news media articles and policy documents were critically assessed. As a result, interpretations of the Second Amendment are shown to affect the acceptability of certain gun restrictions. News media content and policy documents, coupled with the thoughts of activists, also give an indication of why certain policy measures passed and others failed at the time of each of the case studies.

This book should be of interest to social policy, politics, criminology and sociology students and academics, as well as those with a general interest in the topic.



The Influence of Campaign Contributions in State Legislatures: The Effects of Institutions and Politics (Legislative Politics And Policy Making)

(as of Feb 14,2019 21:57:21 UTC – Details)


Campaign contributions are widely viewed as a corrupting influence but most scholarly research concludes that they have marginal impact on legislative behavior. Lynda W. Powell shows that contributions have considerable influence in some state legislatures but very little in others. Using a national survey of legislators, she develops an innovative measure of influence and delineates the factors that explain this great variation across the 99 U.S. state legislative chambers.

Powell identifies the personal, institutional, and political factors that determine how much time a legislator devotes to personal fundraising and fundraising for the caucus. She shows that the extent of donors’ legislative influence varies in ways corresponding to the same variations in the factors that determine fundraising time. She also confirms a link between fundraising and lobbying with evidence supporting the theory that contributors gain access to legislators based on donations, Powell’s findings have important implications for the debate over the role of money in the legislative process.

Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer–and Turned Its Back on the Middle Class

00.00

(as of Feb 01,2019 14:50:12 UTC – Details)



A groundbreaking work that identifies the real culprit behind one of the great economic crimes of our time— the growing inequality of incomes between the vast majority of Americans and the richest of the rich.

We all know that the very rich have gotten a lot richer these past few decades while most Americans haven’t. In fact, the exorbitantly paid have continued to thrive during the current economic crisis, even as the rest of Americans have continued to fall behind. Why do the “haveit- alls” have so much more? And how have they managed to restructure the economy to reap the lion’s share of the gains and shift the costs of their new economic playground downward, tearing new holes in the safety net and saddling all of us with increased debt and risk? Lots of so-called experts claim to have solved this great mystery, but no one has really gotten to the bottom of it—until now.

In their lively and provocative Winner-Take-All Politics, renowned political scientists Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson demonstrate convincingly that the usual suspects—foreign trade and financial globalization, technological changes in the workplace, increased education at the top—are largely innocent of the charges against them. Instead, they indict an unlikely suspect and take us on an entertaining tour of the mountain of evidence against the culprit. The guilty party is American politics. Runaway inequality and the present economic crisis reflect what government has done to aid the rich and what it has not done to safeguard the interests of the middle class. The winner-take-all economy is primarily a result of winner-take-all politics.

In an innovative historical departure, Hacker and Pierson trace the rise of the winner-take-all economy back to the late 1970s when, under a Democratic president and a Democratic Congress, a major transformation of American politics occurred. With big business and conservative ideologues organizing themselves to undo the regulations and progressive tax policies that had helped ensure a fair distribution of economic rewards, deregulation got under way, taxes were cut for the wealthiest, and business decisively defeated labor in Washington. And this transformation continued under Reagan and the Bushes as well as under Clinton, with both parties catering to the interests of those at the very top. Hacker and Pierson’s gripping narration of the epic battles waged during President Obama’s first two years in office reveals an unpleasant but catalyzing truth: winner-take-all politics, while under challenge, is still very much with us.

Winner-Take-All Politics—part revelatory history, part political analysis, part intellectual journey— shows how a political system that traditionally has been responsive to the interests of the middle class has been hijacked by the superrich. In doing so, it not only changes how we think about American politics, but also points the way to rebuilding a democracy that serves the interests of the many rather than just those of the wealthy few.



The Deeper State: Inside the War on Trump by Corrupt Elites, Secret Societies, and the Builders of An Imminent Final Empire

$19.95 - $16.57

(as of Jan 29,2019 11:08:19 UTC – Details)



The Deeper State is about the elites, their secret societies, world power centers and evil motivations behind the chaotic contemporary world pressing all life toward a final one world empire. The contemporary trigger that briefly lifted the veil on this darkness was the election of President Donald Trump who exposed the power brokers, their evil agenda, their techniques and ideology much like when one is shocked when lifting a rock in the forest to discover hidden underneath slimy poisonous vipers. Deep State is a term that has recently come into vogue to describe the forces in Washington and around the country that are rallying to overturn the election of President Trump. But there is far more to this organized resistance, there is an even deeper state that must be exposed to fully understand the imminent danger. THE DEEPER STATE discloses for the first time… *Behind the scenes super elites who promote a false panacea through promises of globalization. *How globalist are taking over the world s power centers *The instruments of global power and the secret hands of the globe s evil puppet masters. *The history of the world s super class. *The marriage of modern globalism and progressivism with deep roots in Marxism and Darwinism. *The one-world government elite behind the European Union. *The spiritual aspects of an invisible war and its Achilles heel. Just when all hope seems lost there is an ancient leader that provides sage advice for these tumultuous times. Yes, God has pre-ordained the final outcome but until that time, which could be soon, we can make a difference in spite of the rigid and seemingly overwhelming push by the elites and their evil ally in the unseen realm.



Secular States, Religious Politics: India, Turkey, and the Future of Secularism

(as of Jan 26,2019 23:05:47 UTC – Details)



A pioneering comparative study of the two major attempts to build secular states – where the state’s constitutional identity and fundamental character are not based on or derived from any religious faith – in the non-Western world. This book explains the origins, evolution and latterly the decline of secularism as a core principle of the state in India and Turkey. The anti-secular political transformations of the twenty-first century are the rise of a Sunni-Islamist definition of Turkish national identity to hegemonic power, and Hindu nationalism as India’s pre-eminent political force. Both secular-state models adopted a similar operational doctrine of state intervention in and regulation of the religious sphere, rather than a Western-style separation of church and state. But, Turkish state-secularism took a culturally deracinated and harshly authoritarian form that led to its failure, whereas India’s secular state – though flawed in practice – followed a culturally rooted and democratic path that makes secularism indispensable to India’s future.
