            The Corruption Chronicles: Obama's Big Secrecy, Big Corruption, and Big Government (EPUB ebook)

            WASHINGTON'S MOST CORRUPT: PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA FLOUTING OF FEDERAL LAW * CORRUPTION * VIOLATING CAMPAIGN FINANCE REGULATIONS * TERRORIST TIES * VOTER REGISTRATION FRAUD * GOVERNMENT CON GAMES * EXTORTION BECAUSE NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW! In 2008, Barack Obama made a promise to ...have the "most transparent administration" of any U.S. president; it was the very cornerstone of his campaign. No secrets. No masks. No smoke and mirrors. No excuses. But over the next four years, President Obama's administration would prove to be one of the most guarded and duplicitous of our time. Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, America's largest nonpartisan government watchdog (challenging George W. Bush as well as Bill Clinton), has been investigating Obama ever since he splashed onto the national scene in 2006. Now Fitton exposes devastating secrets the Obama administration has desperately fought-even in court-to keep from the American public. For a while, the Obama stonewall seemed to be holding. Until now. And the revelations are astonishing. Judicial Watch has unearthed the truth behind such high-profile issues as the bailouts, Obamacare, Guantanamo, Obama's true ties to Bill Ayers and to the Black Panthers voting intimidation scandal, and the Constitution-defying government czars. He reveals Obama's personal war against FOX News, his real link to ACORN, and his radical Chicago connections. Through scores of smoking-gun government files, some replicated here and many unearthed after lengthy court battles, Fitton also discloses the facts of the Obama-backed $535-million loan guarantee to Solyndra, promoted by the president as a model for economic recovery-only months before its disastrous bankruptcy filing. Here too is the truth behind the gunrunning scandal, code-named Fast and Furious, which was a program generated in secrecy by the U.S. government that supplied thousands of firearms to murderous criminals in Mexico-an unconscionable act, and only one in a series of historical lows fo

            "Perhaps the most damning, sweeping critique ever of the Chicago Police Department." -Chicago Tribune Chicago, 2016. In a time of civil unrest in America, when racism, brutality, and division have taken prominent places in the daily news, the federal government conducted an inves...tigation into the affairs of the Chicago Police Department. It is only one of many instances where the federal government has issued investigations of law enforcement across the nation before President Obama's term expired. In a searing report, the department of justice examines Chicago's law enforcement officers and officials for period of nearly thirteen months, digging to uncover moral and legal infractions committed within the department. Revealed is a pattern of aggression, lack of training, excessive use of force, racism and racial profiling, among other misconduct. Read the report in its entirety here. This edition is sure to provide readers with eye-opening insight into an epidemic of injustice and oppression across a divided nation.

            "[Murphy's] biography of Justice Scalia is patient and thorough, alive both intellectually and morally....Functions as an MRI scan of one of the most influential conservative thinkers of the twentieth century." (The New York Times): An authoritative, incisive and deeply researche...d book about of the most controversial Supreme Court justice of our time. Scalia: A Court of One is the compelling story of one of the most polarizing figures to serve on the nation's highest court. Bruce Allen Murphy shows how Scalia changed the legal landscape through his controversial theories of textualism and originalism, interpreting the meaning of the Constitution's words as he claimed they were understood during the nation's Founding period. But Scalia's judicial conservatism is informed as much by his highly traditional Catholicism and political partisanship as by his reading of the Constitution; his opinionated speeches, contentious public appearances, and newsworthy interviews have made him a lightning rod for controversy. Scalia is "an intellectual biography of one of [the Supreme Court's] most colorful members" (Chicago Tribune), combined with an insightful analysis of the Supreme Court and its influence on American life over the past quarter century. Scalia began his career practicing law in Cleveland, Ohio, and rose to become the president's lawyer as the head of the Office of Legal Counsel for President Gerald R. Ford. His sterling academic and legal credentials led to his nomination by President Ronald Reagan to the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit in 1982. In 1986, he successfully outmaneuvered the more senior Robert Bork to be appointed to the Supreme Court. Scalia's evident legal brilliance, ambition and personal magnetism led everyone to predict he would unite a new conservative majority under Chief Justice William Rehnquist and change American law in the process. Instead he became a Court of One. Rather than bringing the conservatives together, Scalia drove them apar

            With an Introduction by Acclaimed Legal Scholar and New York Times Bestselling author Alan Dershowitz, The Official Impeachment Inquiry Report on The Results of The Trump-Ukraine Investigation-Plus the Articles of Impeachment and the Republican Report Disputing the Results of the... Democratic Investigation. Donald Trump is on the verge of being only the third US President impeached by the House of Representatives, but is this a case of a president abusing his power and obstructing justice, or is it a partisan witch hunt protecting the Deep State? Can you trust the mainstream media, or do you want to read the Report for yourself? This groundbreaking report-released by the U.S. House Of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, chaired by Adam Schiff-contains the results of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump's actions as he sought for Ukraine to announce investigations into Hunter Biden, as well as the Committee's conclusions about whether those actions are impeachable offenses. Covering topics ranging from the anonymous whistleblower's first attempts to spread the word about Trump's phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, to the Congressional testimony of Trump's advisers and ambassadors, to the statements of Rudy Giuliani and William Barr, and even the President's efforts to influence the inquiry, The Impeachment Report offers readers the full findings of the Intelligence Committee's investigation, the articles of impeachment themselves, a rebuttal report from Republican representatives that disputes the process and results of the Democratic investigation, an introduction by esteemed attorney Alan Dershowitz, and information about the impeachment process itself. It is the ultimate resource for anyone who wants to know whether impeachment is warranted, and is a critical text in the ongoing back-and-forth battle to protect American democracy.

Robert Mueller, a lifelong Republican, has concluded his investigation and submitted its findings to Attorney General William Barr. Barr has told Congress that Mueller found no proof of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and did not come to a conclusion on obstruction of justice-neither concluding the president committed a crime nor exonerating him. But Mueller's report was over 300 pages and Barr's summary was only four pages, raising questions about the conclusions of a historic investigation. Special Counsel Robert Mueller III's probe into Russian influence on the 2016 election of Donald Trump-including links between the campaign and Russian interests, obstruction of justice by President Trump, and any other matters that may have arisen in the course of the investigation-has been the focal point of American politics since its inception in May 2017.

            Battle For The Marble Palace: Abe Fortas, Earl Warren, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and the Forging of the Modern Supreme Court (EPUB ebook)

            By Bobelian, Michael

            1968 was a particularly tumultuous year in American history. The escalating war in Vietnam, the riots during the Democratic Convention, and the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy left a scar on the national consciousness. But one great battle that took pl...ace during this time is barely recalled. The nomination of Abe Fortas for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court launched an all-out cultural war that would determine the course of major court cases for years to come. Award-winning judicial journalist and Supreme Court reporter Michael Bobelian brings us right into the halls where this fierce battle raged, pitting Lyndon Johnson and the Democratic Party against Richard Nixon and the GOP in a fight that ended in the defamation of Fortas, the first Jew ever nominated for the highest judicial office. Written in vivid detail, the narrative unfolds in a series of dramatic vignettes, from the landmark ruling of Brown vs. Board of Education to the chaos on the floor of the Democratic Convention. Readers are given a behind the scenes look at the camaraderie among the retiring Chief Justice Earl Warren, Lyndon Johnson, and Fortas-and will witness, with them, the rise of Richard Nixon as the fate of the liberal court is decided.

            The Narrow Corridor: How Nations Struggle for Liberty (EPUB ebook)

            By Acemoglu, Daron; Robinson, James A.

            'As enjoyable as it is thought-provoking' Jared DiamondBy the authors of the international bestseller Why Nations Fail, based on decades of research, this powerful new big-picture framework explains how some countries develop towards and provide liberty while others fall to despo...tism, anarchy or asphyxiating norms - and explains how liberty can thrive despite new threats.Liberty is hardly the 'natural' order of things; usually states have been either too weak to protect individuals or too strong for people to protect themselves from despotism. There is also a happy Western myth that where liberty exists, it's a steady state, arrived at by 'enlightenment'. But liberty emerges only when a delicate and incessant balance is struck between state and society - between elites and citizens. This struggle becomes self-reinforcing, inducing both state and society to develop a richer array of capacities, thus affecting the peacefulness of societies, the success of economies and how people experience their daily lives.Explaining this new framework through compelling stories from around the world, in history and from today - and through a single diagram on which the development of any state can be plotted - this masterpiece helps us understand the past and present, and analyse the future.'In this highly original and gratifying fresco, Daron Acemoglu and Jim Robinson take us on a journey through civilizations, time and locations. Their narrow corridor depicts the constant and often unstable struggle of society to keep the Leviathan in check and of the Leviathan to weaken the cage of norms. A remarkable achievement that only they could pull off and that seems destined to repeat the stellar performance of Why Nations Fail' Jean Tirole, Nobel Laureate in Economics, 2014'Another outstanding, insightful book by Acemoglu and Robinson on the importance and difficulty of getting and maintaining a successful democratic state. Packed with examples and analysis, it is a pleasure to read' Pe
