A Book Review of “Saudi Arabia and the Global Islamic Terrorist Network” Edited by Sarah Stern
We all know that the United States is enmeshed in a corrupt bargain with the Saudi Monarchy: We keep a blind eye toward their human rights abuses and they continue to supply us with oil. But it takes Sarah Stern’s excellent volume to tell us just how corrupt the bargain is and how self-defeating is the relationship.
Saudi Arabia provides us one million barrels of oil each day and sends more to Europe. It uses the funds to finance jihad all over the world. 90% of fundamentalist Islamist funding comes from Saudi Arabia. It is our petro dollars that pay al Qaeda, fund extremist mosques which recruit terrorists all over the world.
Her book details it all: the Shariah Compliant Financing that wages war on Western capitalism, the “educational” grants that skew college campuses to a pro-Palestinian and anti-Israeli bias, the Saudi refusal to cooperate in terrorist investigations, the Saudi success in buying off leading Americans like former President Jimmy Carter, their infiltration into our NGOs, the Saudi Islamist penetration of Europe and Canada, and their sponsorship of terrorists within our own country.
And her research could not be more well-timed. As Iran threatens Israel as she has never before been threatened and as our domestic oil production — despite Obama’s best efforts — is making our dependence on Saudi oil a thing of the past, we need to let go of this dangerous relationship and cut Saudi Arabia off. Sarah Stern explains, in explicit detail, why.
It’s President’s Day! Not just a day off, but a time to remember and celebrate the greatness of presidents like Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln. Tell your children about them by reading them Dubs Goes to Washington And Discovers the Greatness of America. Dubs, our golden retriever, loses his tennis ball in Washington DC. To find it, he visits the Lincoln Memorial:
A Book Review of Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America by Mark R. Levin
I took Contemporary Civilization at Columbia College. It had a reading list that was a smattering of excerpts from all the great thinkers who shaped western civilization. We referred to it as the “cocktail party course.” The readings were neither long enough nor sufficiently representative of the body of work of the author to give you a real grasp of what they were saying. But they gave you enough to get by and sound erudite.
A Book Review of Now or Never: Saving America from Economic Collapse by Senator Jim Demint
Jim DeMint is a new kind of U.S. Senator. He puts allegiance to conservative principles ahead of partisanship and sees his role as promoting, not just a Republican majority, but a conservative majority within the GOP caucus. With Senators like Florida’s Marco Rubio, Kentucky’s Rand Paul, Oklahoma’s Tom Coburn, Utah’s Mike Lee, and Pennsylvania’s Pat Toomey, he defines what it means to be a conservative in the Obama era.
His new book, Now or Never: Saving America from Economic Collapse, is a manifesto for his movement, a credo for his convictions. He explains that while we all must unite in opposing Obama’s nation-destroying policies, we must also keep our eye focused on conservative answers to today’s problems. He goes deeper than mere partisanship and nay-saying and, with the assistance of his fellow Senators who contributed to the book, he articulates a real program for American revival.
Capitol Punishment by Jack Abramoff Reviewed by Dick Morris
If you want to know how Washington works, read Jack Abramoff’s book, Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth About Washington Corruption From America’s Most Notorious Lobbyist.
As I sat down to read it, I expected to find lurid tales of payoffs, bribes, shakedowns, extortion, and corruption. Instead, I read a fascinating account of how normal politics in Washington works. And that’s the problem: In Washington, the normal is corrupt and often criminal.
Indoctrination by Kyle Olson Reviewed by Dick Morris
It has become a truism for conservatives that the media and the entertainment industry are biased in favor of the left. We pick and choose the films we watch – or let our kids watch – and tune to Fox News to get what is really going on.
Now comes Kyle Olson’s new book, Indoctrination: How ‘Useful Idiots’ Are Using Our Schools to Subvert American Exceptionalism, which exposes the third leg of the stool that keeps the left propped up in our politics: The systematic indoctrination of our children in the public and private schools of America.
We are all so fixated on the economic mayhem being inflicted on our country by the Obama presidency, that we may have overlooked the power grab and the correlating decrease in our freedom his programs are triggering.
A Book Review by Dick Morris
The opposite of a socialist planned economy is, of course, free market capitalism. But, by the same token, the opposite of government entitlements is personal responsibility. It is this second dichotomy, perhaps more than the first, which animates the true difference between the governing philosophy of President Obama on the one hand and the Republican Party and the Tea Party on the other.
Dick and Eileen’s new book: Revolt!: How To Defeat Obama and Repeal His Socialist Programs – A Patriot’s Guide identifies the vulnerable Senate Democrats and explains how to beat them:
We need four seats to control the Senate and three likely pickups are Democratic retirements in red states: North Dakota, Virginia, and New Mexico. In Virginia, former Governor and Senator George Allen offers the best chance of victory. We also expect that Herman Kohl, Democrat of Wisconsin, may retire – if he knows what’s good for him!
Ben Nelson, Nebraska
After his vote for Obamacare, we have waited for 2012 to come around so we could beat Ben Nelson! And it is not just Obamacare. Read how Nelson pushed an amendment that would have benefited one company: Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway. And, by coincidence, he and his wife own between $1.5 million and $6 million in the company’s stock, their largest investment!
We hope that Republican Governor Dave Heineman takes him on. Rasmussen shows him ahead of Nelson by 61-30!
Jon Tester, Montana
Elected by a margin of less than one point in 2006, we can beat Tester! In the Senate, he is known as Max Jr., following the senior senator Max Bacus (sponsor of Obamacare) around like a puppy.
His opponent: Denny Rehberg, the Republican at-large Congressman. It’s one of the top races in America and the polls already have Rehberg ahead!
In Revolt!, we expose Tester’s unique way of raising money. He sponsored 95 earmarks in 2010, costing us $138 million. And then he turned around and took $2.5 million in kickback/campaign contributions from the earmark recipients and their lobbyists! That’s how he’s raised 36% of his campaign money!
Bob Casey, Pennsylvania
Masquerading as pro-life, in the image of his father the Governor, in Revolt!, we detail his pro-choice votes. Casey got a 65% favorable rating from NARAL – the National Abortion Rights League. Some pro-lifer!
After Pennsylvania elected a Republican senator and governor, it is ready to throw out Casey the counterfeit!
Claire McCaskill, Missouri
The ultra-liberal from Missouri favors a public option on Obamacare and laments that the stimulus was too small!
In Revolt!, we expose how she benefits from her husband’s tax dodge, a $1 million reinsurance company based in Bermuda. Why there? Either it’s the pink sand or the tax shelter.
Her best opponent is Sarah Steelman, former Missouri Treasurer and a conservative Republican. Steelman was the first state treasurer in the nation to boycott companies that did business with Iran!
Bill Nelson, Florida
With the largest elderly population in America, Bill Nelson will have a hard time explaining his vote to cut Medicare by $500 billion. (He says he voted to “prolong” it not to cut it!).
We should beat Nelson and there are two strong candidates: Mike Haridopoulis and Connie Mack.
In Revolt!, we also lay out the case against:
Herbert Kohl, Wisconsin
Joe Manchin, West Virginia
Sherrod Brown, Ohio
Robert Menendez, New Jersey
Debbie Stabenow, Michigan
…In all, we could pick up 13 seats in the Senate!
A Book Review By DICK MORRIS of Quiet Hero: Secrets From My Father’s Past By Rita Cosby
The Warsaw Ghetto uprising of 1943 is justifiably the stuff of numerous books, articles, and films. But, just as significant and lasting in its impact was the Polish Resistance Revolt of 1944.
In one of the most galling stories of perfidy and trickery, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin summoned the Polish resistance to come out of hiding and rise to fight the German war machine, promising immediate aid from the hundreds of thousands of Soviet troops massed on the other side of the Vistula River gazing down on the city of Warsaw. The resistance emerged from their underground hiding spots and fiercely attacked the Wehrmacht inflicting large casualties on the German occupiers. But the Soviet troops sat there on the opposite bank of the Vistula for five months and did not budge to assist them. Almost one million Poles were slaughtered as the Nazis destroyed their units. Once the smoke of battle had cleared, the Soviets crossed the river and pushed the Nazis back on their drive to Berlin. Stalin had succeeded in getting Hitler to wipe out the only forces of democracy and freedom in Poland.
