Outrage
by Dick Morris, Eileen McGann
Hardcover

Our Price: $20.95You Save: 22%

Conservatives have good reason to be fed up. Wherever we look, in every sector of our economy and every level of our government and politics, it’s obvious that the prevailing policies are deliberately designed to benefit an elite few at the expense of the rest of us. It’s time to transform our democracy back into what it was intended to be: no longer a government of the pampered congressmen, paid for by the lobbyists who pervert the process for the benefit of greedy special interests, but a government truly of the people, by the people, and for the people. In Outrage: How Liberals, Congress, Unions, Drug Companies, Big Oil, Banks, Lobbyists, Corporations, the United Nations, the World Bank, the INS, the TSA, and the Democratic Party Are Ripping Us Off…and What to Do About It, Dick Morris and Eileen McGann show just how bad things have gotten — and outline a way to bring the American public square back to what it should be. read more

A Field Guide to Left-Wing Wackos
by Alan Lipton, Kfir Alfia
Hardcover

Our Price: $14.95You Save: 17%

Few things spook normal law-abiding, job-holding Americans more than a motley bunch of left-wing protesters. It’s not so much their politics that put us off — it’s their slovenly (often bizarre) dress, their bad grooming habits (or total lack of such), and most of all their obscenity-spouting anger, grim humorlessness, and smug self-importance. Just who are these foul-mouthed, foul-smelling characters clogging our streets and college campuses, protesting everything from globalization to genetically modified food to tax cuts? Now, A Field Guide To Left-Wing Wackos (and What to Do About Them), identifies and describes 18 common “species” of left-wing protesters, supplying witty definitions, vivid illustrations, identifying characteristics and behavior, “cries” (slogans), habitat, evolutionary origins, as well as thrilling (and hilarious) anecdotes of actual sightings. read more

by William J. Bennett
Hardcover

Our Price: $23.95You Save: 20%

In America: The Last Best Hope, Volume II, renowned historian and educator William J. Bennett continues his acclaimed history of the United States — and confronts head-on the America-hating historians whose works liberals have imported into our schools and universities by the truckload. Covering the period from World War I to the Reagan Era, this new book is a lively and unapologetically patriotic account of the tumultuous decades that saw America become a world power, face down Nazi and Communist tyranny, and stand today against the global Islamic jihad as the world’s last, best hope to defend freedom. read more

In the Words of Our Enemies
by Jed Babbin
Hardcover

Our Price: $19.95You Save: 29%

We Americans are great talkers, but not often great listeners. When some dictator or terrorist threatens to end our way of life, destroy our economy, or end our influence in his region of the world, we usually find some way to ignore him or rationalize his statements. That’s what we did with Osama bin Laden in his long, brazenly public buildup to 9/11 — and it’s what we risk doing again with other deadly enemies who are also making their intentions plain. Now, in In the Words of Our Enemies, bestselling author Jed Babbin (former deputy undersecretary of defense), exposes the demagogues, dictators, and death squads who openly threaten America — with potentially devastating consequences, if we aren’t alert to the danger. read more

The Compleated Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
by Mark Skousen
Paperback

Our Price: $15.95You Save: 20%

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) was the most famous American of his age — a world-renowned inventor, essayist, philosopher, diplomat, wit, and the only Founding Father to sign the Declaration of Independence, the Treaty of Paris, and the United States Constitution. His Autobiography, though considered the most popular and influential memoir ever written, ends abruptly in 1757, when he was just 51 years old; another 33 years of his life were still to be recorded when he died, including the most eventful years of his illustrious political career. Now, in honor of the 300th anniversary of Franklin’s birth, Mark Skousen has accomplished what the old philosopher could not. Drawing from Franklin’s own papers, correspondence, and a detailed outline Franklin left behind, Skousen has completed the Autobiography — using Franklin’s own words.

The Edge of Evolution
by Michael Behe
Hardcover

Our Price: $21.95You Save: 22%

After dealing Darwinism a devastating blow with his explosive first book, Darwin’s Black Box (which explained why Darwinism was utterly unable to explain the complex machinery of the cell), Michael Behe finishes off evolutionary theory in The Edge of Evolution: The Search for the Limits of Darwinism. In this tour de force of evidence and logic, Behe deals nothing less than a death-blow to Darwinism! He draws on the most extensive and detailed genetic studies available in order to subject Darwin’s theory to rigorous testing – and in the process, Behe proves that life does develop, but not in the way Darwin thought it did. read more

The Late Great U.S.A.
by Jerome Corsi
Hardcover

Our Price: $19.95You Save: 23%

Imagine America selling out its independence to become a member of the global community. Superhighways – a quarter-mile wide – divide the landscape to enable free, unimpeded movement of people and goods across open borders with Mexico and Canada. Mexican drivers deliver under-market goods from China, but our middle class can’t earn enough “ameros” to buy these cheap products at Wal-Mart. Private foreign investors take control of our roads, airports, and hospitals. Think it can’t happen? In The Late Great U.S.A., The Covert Creation of the North American Union, Dr. Jerome Corsi, coauthor of the New York Times bestseller Unfit for Command, shows how a bureaucratically-entrenched army of “world citizens” is working tirelessly towards this very scenario. read more

The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Constitution
by Kevin Gutzman
Hardcover

Our Price: $19.95You Save: 29%

The Constitution of the United States created a representative republic marked by federalism and the separation of powers. Yet in recent decades, numerous federal judges — led by the Supreme Court — have used the Constitution as a blank check allowing them to substitute their own views on hot-button issues such as abortion, capital punishment and “gay marriage” for perfectly constitutional laws enacted by “We, the People” through our elected representatives. Now, The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Constitution shows that there is very little relationship between the Constitution ratified by the thirteen states more than two centuries ago and the “constitutional law” imposed upon us in the name of that Constitution since then. read more

A Mormon in the White House?
by Hugh Hewitt
Hardcover

Our Price: $19.95You Save: 29%

In A Mormon in the White House?: 10 Things Every American Should Know about Mitt Romney, radio host and Republican strategist Hugh Hewitt tackles two main questions: first, does Mitt Romney, who is at this point still a relatively obscure blue-state governor, have the “right stuff” to be president? And if the answer to the first question is yes — and most Republicans believe that answer is yes — will Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith nevertheless disqualify him from being the Republican nominee for president? read more

An Enormous Crime
by Bill Hendon, Elizabeth A. Stewart
Hardcover

Our Price: $23.95You Save: 20%

More than 30 years after the U.S. withdrew its forces from Vietnam, American soldiers are still being held captive in southeast Asia. Despite hundreds of postwar sightings and intelligence reports telling of Americans being held captive throughout Vietnam and Laos, Washington has done nothing. Neither has the Pentagon acted upon the numerous secret military signals and codes sent from the desperate POWs themselves. Now, in An Enormous Crime, former Congressman Bill Hendon (R-NC) and attorney Elizabeth A. Stewart expose the reasons why the U.S. knowingly left behind hundreds of American soldiers in 1973 and provide stunning evidence that Americans are still living in captivity now. read more

Deja Reviews
by Florence King
Hardcover

Our Price: $19.95You Save: 20%

When Florence King writes, even liberals can’t help laughing — though most of her barbs are aimed directly at them. The Washington Post calls her “one of the few contemporary American essayists of sufficient pungency and wit as to be almost always worth reading” — and even the New York Times concedes that “she can write a mean tour de force.” Conservatives love her, of course, even when she holds their feet to the fire. Now, you can enjoy some of her very finest and funniest writing in Deja Reviews: Florence King All Over Again — a handsome 360-page hardcover collection of each and every one of the glorious essays and unrivalled book reviews Miss King penned for National Review and The American Spectator up until her (now happily revoked!) retirement in 2002. read more

John Dewey and the Decline of American Education
by Henry T. Edmonson
Hardcover

Our Price: $19.95You Save: 20%

Most conservatives agree that American public schools are a mess, and favor various political and constitutional remedies. But until the deep flaws in American educational philosophy are confronted, argues Henry T. Edmonson III, efforts in the political and constitutional arena are likely to continue to fail. Those flaws are largely attributable to the influence of John Dewey, the progressive turn-of-the-century reformer whose impact on American education is incalculable. Now, in John Dewey and the Decline of American Education, Edmondson explains Dewey’s ideas, shows how they have transformed American education for the worse. read more

Land of Lincoln
by Andrew Ferguson
Hardcover

Our Price: $18.95You Save: 21%

Andrew Ferguson picked up the paper from his stoop one morning and saw the headline “Lincoln statue stirs outrage in Richmond.” “Who could object to Lincoln?” Ferguson wondered. “He seems too big even to have an opinion about. It would be like objecting to the moon.” Ferguson – a senior editor of The Weekly Standard and a Lincoln buff since boyhood — was so puzzled by this headline that eventually led him on a coast-to-coast journey through contemporary Lincoln Nation, encountering everything from hatred to adoration to opportunism and all manner of reaction in between. The result of that journey is the frequently hilarious Land of Lincoln: Adventures in Abe’s America — a travelogue, a history, a biography, and a witty commentary rolled into one highly entertaining look at our sixteenth president, who is still making headlines. read more

NO: Why Kids — of All Ages — Need to Hear It and Ways Parents Can Say It
by Dr. David Walsh
Hardcover

Our Price: $17.95You Save: 22%

Too many kids today display impatience, a lack of respect, a need for instant gratification, inflated expectations, a sense of entitlement, selfishness, and falling test scores. The diagnosis, according to renowned psychologist David Walsh: not the all-purpose cop-out “Attention Deficit Disorder” (ADD) — but what Dr. Walsh dubs “Discipline Deficit Disorder,” or DDD. The results if untreated? Psychologically flabby and spiritually empty kids. The Prescription: NO: Why Kids — of All Ages — Need to Hear It and Ways Parents Can Say It read more

The Forgotten Man
by Amity Shlaes
Hardcover

Our Price: $20.95You Save: 22%

The standard history of the 1930s teaches that the Great Crash of 1929 was caused by the runaway capitalism – and that it took massive government spending in the form of FDR’s New Deal programs to bring the country out of the Great Depression. But now, in The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression, Amity Shlaes delivers a sharp rebuttal to that interpretation – demonstrating that it was not free markets but government mismanagement of the late 1920s and 1930s economy that made the Depression Great. Both Hoover and Roosevelt, she shows, played roles in this by raising taxes when Americans couldn’t afford it, and by suppressing the private sector in a damaging fashion whose cost agonized New Dealers themselves recognized. read more
