This New York Times bestselling Trump biography from a major American intellectual explains how a renegade businessman became one of the most successful -- and necessary -- presidents of all time. In The Case for Trump, award-winning historian and political commentator Victor Davis Hanson explains how a celebrity businessman with no political or military experience triumphed over sixteen well-qualified Republican rivals, a Democrat with a quarter-billion-dollar war chest, and a hostile media and Washington establishment to become president of the United States -- and an extremely successful president. Trump alone saw a political opportunity in defending the working people of America's interior whom the coastal elite of both parties had come to scorn, Hanson argues. And Trump alone had the instincts and energy to pursue this opening to victory, dismantle a corrupt old order, and bring long-overdue policy changes at home and abroad. We could not survive a series of presidencies as volatile as Trump's. But after decades of drift, America needs the outsider Trump to do what normal politicians would not and could not do.
"Read this book and learn how best to protect our democracy." --Tom Steyer, founder of Need To Impeach The reasons Donald Trump must be impeached — as per the Founding Fathers — and what you can do to help make that happen Three veteran constitutional attorneys say there’s no way around it: The Constitution demands that Donald Trump must be impeached. And in clear language using compelling logic rooted firmly in the Constitution, they detail why the time to start is now—not in the indefinite future after criminal investigations have ended. In fact, much of Trump’s impeachable conduct lies outside the scope of ongoing federal criminal investigations. Citing charges such as accepting illegal payments from foreign governments, using government agencies to persecute political enemies, obstructing justice, abusing the pardon power, and the undermining freedom of the press, they provide the factual and legal basis for eight articles of impeachment. In short, they argue, abuses threatening our constitutional democracy should be dealt with by the remedy that the Constitution provides for a lawless, authoritarian president: impeachment. And an informed citizenry should be part of the process. After all, they say, impeachment is not a constitutional crisis — impeachment is the cure for a constitutional crisis.

In his compelling new book, The Catholic Case for Trump, Austin Ruse cuts through leftist lies aimed at squashing the Catholic vote and offers his audience – broken down into three categories of Liberal, Faithful, and Generic Catholics – a guide as to why all Catholics should not only vote for President Trump, but do so enthusiastically with confidence that he is the only moral choice. This book examines more than a dozen issues and makes the case that a Faithful Catholic can find not just a reason, but a Catholic reason, to vote for Trump. This is a must-read book for all Catholic voters.
One of America’s most celebrated lawyers and a Democrat explains why impeachment proceedings would be a bad idea for America―and only intensify the larger problem with our democracy. In the 2018 New York Times bestseller The Case Against Impeaching Trump, Alan Dershowitz lamented how American political discourse has devolved into hypocrisy and the criminalization of political differences in the rush to impeach President Donald Trump. Arguments to impeach Trump failed Dershowitz’s “shoe on the other foot test,” or his political golden rule: Democrats must do unto Republicans what they would have Republicans do unto them, and vice versa. Since then, we’ve only become more divided―and the impeachment power wielded by the new Democratic majority in the House of Representative threatens to further polarize the country. The Case Against the Democratic House Impeaching Trump includes and expands upon Dershowitz’s 2018 book. It puts recent political events―including the hyper-partisan Kavanaugh hearings, the unrestrained power of the Mueller investigation, and the generally intolerant current political discourse―into context. American democracy, Dershowitz argues, is suffering from political hypocrisy. And two years of impeachment proceedings brought by the House―and the media circus that would undoubtedly surround them―is clearly not the answer. This book is Alan Dershowitz’s plea for honest dialogue―for arguments that would be made even if the shoe was on the other foot.
The New York Times bestseller What is impeachment? How does it work? And why is it so urgent to impeach Donald Trump? No one is above the law. This belief is fundamental to how the American system of government is meant to function – as fundamental as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – held sacred by Democrats and Republicans alike. But as celebrated Supreme Court lawyer and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal argues in Impeach, if President Trump is not held accountable for repeatedly asking foreign powers to interfere in the 2020 presidential election, this could very well mark the end of US democracy. Impeachment should always be a last resort, explains Katyal, but the founders, core principles, and the Constitution leave no choice but to impeach President Trump – before it’s too late. This clear and direct book explains what impeachment is, why it’s in the U.S. constitution and why Donald Trump has left Congress and the American people with no choice but to remove him from office.
Donald Trump is certain to be remembered as one of the major historical figures of our lifetimes. In this book-part people's history, part theory of politics, part biography-McIlwain presents Trump in terms of the fate of Western freedom from ancient Greece to the present day. McIlwain explains how the political tradition of freedom depends on a strong middle class (independent citizens who are neither rich or poor) and how Trump has elevated this group at the expense of an elite that recognizes him as an existential threat to its social privilege and political control. He explains how this elite has sought to uproot the Western tradition of freedom in preparation for a Chinese-style oligarchical and collectivist global state (and how it was on the cusp of permanent victory before the advent of Trump). Examining the deeper power structures and events that impact our political life, McIlwain reveals a very different story to the one told by those mainstream journalists and intellectuals who are themselves often auxiliary members of the emergent global ruling class. While it is often said that victors write history, it is the victorious classes who write it. The overwhelming majority of the books written about Donald Trump have been written from the perspective of a once unchallenged globalist ruling elite that now finds itself engulfed by a determined nationalist and populist insurgency. Heeding Victor Davis Hanson's call for "academic populism" McIlwain has produced a book that is at once accessible and compelling while rich with historical and theoretical insight. As one of the few intellectuals who speaks for the people, McIlwain (PhD in politics, 2018) has aimed to defy the biased narratives of the established elites and writes from the perspective of this "revolution from the middle". Like its subject Donald Trump, this book is part of the nemesis of a ruling class.
Evangelicals gave 81% of their votes to Donald Trump in 2016, a record in the history of modern polling. Critics charge that evangelical Trump supporters have revealed themselves to be political prostitutes and hypocrites who surrendered their religious integrity in order to gain access to power, modern-day Pharisees who have so thoroughly compromised their witness that they are now disqualified from speaking out on moral issues in the future. As a prominent evangelical figure for a quarter century and both a friend of President Trump and a member of his campaign Faith advisory board, Dr. Ralph Reed persuasively argues that evangelicals have a moral obligation to enthusiastically back Trump due to the stridently anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, and pro-abortion agenda of the progressive left.
