DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In his acclaimed #1 New York Times bestseller, Mark R. Levin explores the psychology, motivations, and history of the utopian movement, its architects—the Founding Fathers, and its modern-day disciples—and how the individual and American society are being devoured by it. Levin asks, what is this utopian force that both allures a free people and destroys them? Levin digs deep into the past and draws astoundingly relevant parallels to contemporary America from Plato’s Republic, Thomas More’s Utopia, Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan, and Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, as well as from the critical works of John Locke, Charles Montesquieu, Alexis de Tocqueville, and other philosophical pioneers who brilliantly diagnosed the nature of man and government. As Levin meticulously pursues his subject, the reader joins him in an enlightening and compelling journey. And in the end, Levin’s message is clear: the American republic is in great peril. The people must now choose between utopianism or liberty. President Ronald Reagan warned, “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” Levin agrees, and with Ameritopia, delivers another modern political classic, an indispensable guide for America in our time and in the future.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

ABOUT THE BOOK “I can’t sit down long enough to write a book, and now I don’t have to ‘cause my buddy Mark Levin new book is out called Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America. I don’t have to write another book, at least not now.” - Rush Limbaugh Three years since the publication of his book, Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, best-selling author and conservative radio talk show host, Mark R. Levin published Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America. In the book’s introduction, Levin explains his reasoning for writing the book as a desire to answer certain questions regarding a utopian ideology he saw that “both attracts a free people and destroys them.” He noted that great leaders and thinkers, such as Ronald Reagan, Abraham Lincoln, Joseph Story, and the Founding Fathers, “feared” such an ideology and recognized its “threat” and “destructiveness.” His desire to pen Ameritopia spurred largely from the recent shift to incorporate said ideology of utopianism into the American life. Said shift added to an ever-widening gap between ideologies in American political parties. By the end of President George W. Bush’s second term in office, there was a great deal of outrage from the liberal left and portions of the conservative right regarding various policies and actions. During the 2008 election season, a relatively unknown African-American Senator from Illinois named Barack Hussein Obama burst onto the scene as a challenger to Democratic presidential candidate, New York Senator, and former First Lady, Hillary Clinton. The possibility of the first African-American to be elected president was touted as a “historical moment,” and many claimed to support him for just that reason -- to be part of history. Members of the audience fainted in more than one instance during Obama’s campaign. What happened next sent ripples of shock through the nation. Not only did Obama win the Democratic nomination, but with virtually no vetting, he won the election for President on the promise of “Hope and Change.” In 2009, Levin published his book Liberty and Tyranny, which compared the conservative and liberal viewpoints. Jeffrey Lord of The American Spectator claimed that the book was a “major political player” in the 2010 elections, which created sweeping changes in power across the country. A number of traditionally Democratic offices were defeated and won by Republicans. Lord also posited that Levin’s Ameritopia would make an “explosive impact in 2012” following its predecessor, Liberty and Tyranny. In his review of Ameritopia, Author David Limbaugh (brother to radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh) explained why the Utopian ideal is dangerous for America, perhaps stating better than Lord why the book could have an impact in the 2012 elections: EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK “[...] in Utopia, More creates the outline of a representative government structure. However, it is largely irrelevant, given the established dictates affecting minute details of daily life.” A Utopian society is created, with every conceivable problem addressed as those in charge strip away rights and emotional attachments from the people. Servants exist in this paradise and the kingdom itself is isolated from the rest of the world in order to protect itself from unwanted outside influences that could disrupt the ideal society. Families are routinely split up, because the state knows better than parents where children should live, what occupation they should pursue and how best, overall, to raise and educate them. Travel is controlled because papers (passports) are required by law in order for any travel, even inside the kingdom, to be permitted. ...buy the book to continue reading!

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

America in 2075 has achieved a state of Utopia. Following the political coup-d'état of 2025 by the “Militant Moderates”, led by the irascible and Machiavellian Johannes Schmitt, America resolved all of its early 21st Century social and economic issues: gay marriage, health care, abortion, immigration, welfare, education, and debt. With the elimination of liberal and conservative zealots and through the careful measurement of student data in the high schools, the educational system works with federal government forces to ensure that the perfectly administered economy offers a Brave New World-esque supply of workers, intellects, technicians, immigrants and other cogs in the American economic engine. Follow the coming of age of two young outstanding teachers, Murray Mallory Moore and Jacob Wilde, who upon their recent nomination to the Academy of Principals, find that during their training, they will enter a secret society which works in conjunction with Homeland Security to ensure the smooth operation of America's Utopian society by extending that usage of educational data to hunt down the pariah students of America in the most Orwellian manner. As Moore and Wilde are exposed to the dark underbelly of America's perceived idyllic state—student assassinations—set up by Senator Schmitt's Great Compromise of 2025, a moral crevasse explodes between Moore and Wilde as they come to grips with this Swiftian world where logos takes precedence over pathos. Follow Murray Mallory Moore and Jacob Wilde's strange rite-of-passage as the Department of Homeland Security conducts bizarre team-building skills and enigmatic psyche tests regarding prospective teachers' respective dogmas. Discover the benevolently heinous events—terrorist attacks, political murder, citizenship revocation, institutionalized deportations, and student assassination—which are utilized to maintain this terrible beauty that has become Ameritopia. Travel from America's Mid-West town of Cincinnati to the Grand Canyon back to Washington D.C. and then, for the final test, the island of Guam, a penal colony, where America sends its societal degenerates for the remainder of their lives. Steeped with literary and historical references, inundated with SAT/ACT preparatory vocabulary, and sprinkled with copious literary allusions, this politically castigating novel which targets the Millennial Generation and has been stylistically composed to utilize the crafts of Orwell, Huxley, Swift, Joyce, Hardy, and Heinlein in hopes of being taught in America's high schools, begs the young adults of the United States to wrestle with the political conundrums of their generation and asks how far down a road of dystopian practices should America go in order to achieve Utopia.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In this summary of Mark R. Levin's book, Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America, you will discover how America's government has been slowly descending into tyranny using utopian tactics that serve to bring citizens under control until they are completely dependent upon the state for sustenance.The evidence for Levin's claims is presented in an engaging format beginning with the definition of utopia and ending with specific examples of how America has become a utopian state. Levin takes you back in history to show you other examples of utopia and how all of them eventually descended into tyranny. He also talks about what makes America unique and how the Founding Fathers intended the government to operate. Levin points out time and time again that the current governmental atmosphere is far from the original intentions, which were based on the philosophies of John Locke and Charles de Montesquieu. Instead, Levin suggests the country is trending toward the ideal societies imagined by Plato, Thomas More, Thomas Hobbes ad even Karl Marx. However, Levin proves that these societies were anything but ideal by digging deeper into their power-hungry intentions and oppressive practices. Using more evidence from Constitution, Levin expertly contrasts today's American society with the Founding Fathers' purposeful inclusions and exclusions, and then compares it to utopian ideals to illustrate how far from the Founders' original vision America has strayed.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Six-time New York Times bestselling author, FOX News star, and radio host Mark R. Levin “trounces the news media” (The Washington Times) in this timely and groundbreaking book demonstrating how the great tradition of American free press has degenerated into a standardless profession that has squandered the faith and trust of the public. Unfreedom of the Press is not just another book about the press. In “Levin’s finest work” (Breitbart), he shows how those entrusted with news reporting today are destroying freedom of the press from within—not through actions of government officials, but with its own abandonment of reportorial integrity and objective journalism. With the depth of historical background for which his books are renowned, Levin takes you on a journey through the early American patriot press, which proudly promoted the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. This is followed by the early decades of the Republic during which newspapers around the young country were open and transparent about their fierce allegiance to one political party or another. It was only at the start of the Progressive Era and the 20th century that the supposed “objectivity of the press” first surfaced, leaving us where we are today: with a partisan party-press overwhelmingly aligned with a political ideology but hypocritically engaged in a massive untruth as to its real nature.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Don’t miss syndicated radio host and author Mark Levin's #1 New York Times acclaimed and longtime bestselling manifesto for the conservative movement. When nationally syndicated radio host Mark R. Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny appeared in the early months of the Obama presidency, Americans responded by making his clarion call for a new era in conservatism a #1 New York Times bestseller for an astounding twelve weeks. As provocative, well-reasoned, robust, and informed as his on-air commentary, with his love of our country and the legacy of our Founding Fathers reflected on every page, Levin’s galvanizing narrative provides a philosophical, historical, and practical framework for revitalizing the conservative vision and ensuring the preservation of American society. In the face of the modern liberal assault on Constitution-based values, an attack that has resulted in a federal government that is a massive, unaccountable conglomerate, the time for reinforcing the intellectual and practical case for conservatism is now. In a series of powerful essays, Levin lays out how conservatives can counter the tyrannical liberal corrosion that has filtered into every timely issue affecting our daily lives, from the economy to health care, global warming to immigration, and more.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

War and crime are relics of the past. Violence and non-tolerance have been bred out of the population. How? As a result of too much god-play, men have all but wiped themselves off the face of the planet. Women have inherited the Earth. But the species must carry on... Daily monotony and curiosity about historic tales of romance overwhelm inexperienced and mannerly researcher Evelyn Knight. Consequently, she risks the comfortable life she's always known and ventures into one of the last strongholds of men, tucked into the foothills of Colorado: The Rock. Inside, Eve is pushed to the breaking point when confronted with everything she has been missing on the outside: aggression, betrayal, duplicity, and could it be... love? Not the kind of love portrayed in the Austen novels she grew up with... something more raw and incalculable. Ameritopia defies gender roles and the status quo in a way that just might help you rediscover life (and love) with new hope.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author and radio host Mark R. Levin comes a searing plea for a return to America’s most sacred values. In Rediscovering Americanism, Mark R. Levin revisits the founders’ warnings about the perils of overreach by the federal government and concludes that the men who created our country would be outraged and disappointed to see where we've ended up. Levin returns to the impassioned question he's explored in each of his bestselling books: How do we save our exceptional country? Because our values are in such a precarious state, he argues that a restoration to the essential truths on which our country was founded has never been more urgent. Understanding these principles, in Levin’s words, can “serve as the antidote to tyrannical regimes and governments.” Rediscovering Americanism is not an exercise in nostalgia, but an appeal to his fellow citizens to reverse course. This essential book brings Levin’s celebrated, sophisticated analysis to the troubling question of America's future, and reminds us what we must restore for the sake of our children and our children's children.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

While Laura Ingraham was walking through a Northern Virginia shopping mall one Saturday afternoon, it all became clear to her. Everywhere she turned, she saw signs of the impending disaster: zombie teens texting each other across a café table; a man having his eyebrows threaded at a kiosk; a fiftyish woman shoe-horned into a tube top and skinny jeans; and a storefront ad featuring a Victoria’s Secret model spilling out of her push-up bra and into the faces of young passersby. Ingraham wondered to herself, “Is this it? Is this what our forefathers fought for? What my parents struggled for? I wonder if Victoria’s Secret is still having that two-for-one sale?” A menacing force surrounds us. We see it, we feel it, we know it. The country we love is in grave peril. While politicians and “experts” prattle on about the debt crisis at home, and terrorism abroad, a more insidious homegrown threat is emerging. It endangers our future and undermines our present. The uncomfortable truth is: We have become our own worst enemy. The culture we have created is now turning on us. We’re on the verge of drowning in our ignorance, arrogance, gluttony . . . can you believe there are only three shots of vanilla in a Caramel Macchiato?!? Now in an act of patriotic intervention the most-listened-to woman in talk radio casts her satirical eye upon all that ails American society. In this sharp-witted, comic romp, Laura Ingraham takes you on a guided tour through ten levels of our cultural hell. You know we’re in trouble when . . . • Airplane seats shrink—just as the passengers expand. • Celebrity baby names go from the peculiar (Apple, Stetson, and Daisy Boo) to the pathetic (Bamboo, Blanket, and Bronx). • People meticulously tend their virtual crops on Farmville, while their children eat takeout. • “Breaking News” usually means it happened yesterday. • The weddings last longer than the marriages. • Facebook has become a verb and reading has become an ancient art form. Of Thee I Zing is cultural commentary too funny to ignore, igniting a national conversation long past due. America, your cultural recovery begins here.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The grave is dug, the headstone carved, the hearse idling out front. A once-potent political and cultural scourge of our time, Liberalism, is breathing its last?and loudest?breaths. In this provocative postmortem, R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. traces the dubious rise and inevitable fall of the deeply flawed Liberal-Progressive movement, which has culminated in the nation's first stealth socialist, President Barack Obama?the unwitting pallbearer for American Liberalism. While exposing this nonsensical worldview, Tyrrell also winsomely reaffirms the timeless values Liberalism has endeavored to undermine: free enterprise, personal liberty, limited government, empiricism, reason, and common sense. Ultimately, Tyrrell welcomes conservatives, moderates, independents, and the heretofore apolitical to step forward at this crucial juncture, and take the final steps necessary to administer Liberalism's last rites. "From Harry Truman to Ed Koch to McGovern, Liberalism has been in decline. With Obama, Liberalism is dead. Now comes Crony Capitalism. This is a hilarious and profound book?especially because Tyrrell sees the value of Fox News nd Talk Radio." ?Sean Hannity, author of Conservative Victory, and radio host of The Sean Hannity Show and Fox News Channel's Hannity. "R. Emmett Tyrrell . . . chronicles with growing joyfulness the high points of Liberalism's demise until we get to 2010 and Liberalism's lurch into the grave. . . A wonderful read and a fitting send-off to a very dreary ideology." ?Mark Levin, host of The Mark Levin Radio Show and author of the bestsellers Liberty and Tyranny and Ameritopia "The Death of Liberalism is a dashing, sharp, well-argued and succinct tract for the times. Mr. Tyrrell is a controversialist of stature, a polemicist of robust energy and a man who knows how to present his case with power and precision."?Paul Johnson, author of Modern Times, Intellectuals, and A History of the American People

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The first authorized inside account of one of the most daring—and successful—military operations in recent history From the earliest days of his dictatorship, Saddam Hussein had vowed to destroy Israel. So when France sold Iraq a top-of-the-line nuclear reactor in 1975, the Israelis were justifiably concerned—especially when they discovered that Iraqi scientists had already formulated a secret program to extract weapons-grade plutonium from the reactor, a first critical step in creating an atomic bomb. The reactor formed the heart of a huge nuclear plant situated twelve miles from Baghdad, 1,100 kilometers from Tel Aviv. By 1981, the reactor was on the verge of becoming “hot,” and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin knew he would have to confront its deadly potential. He turned to Israeli Air Force commander General David Ivry to secretly plan a daring surgical strike on the reactor—a never-before-contemplated mission that would prove to be one of the most remarkable military operations of all time. Written with the full and exclusive cooperation of the Israeli Air Force high command, General Ivry (ret.), and all of the eight mission pilots (including Ilan Ramon, who become Israel’s first astronaut and perished tragically in the shuttle Columbia disaster), Raid on the Sun tells the extraordinary story of how Israel plotted the unthinkable: defying its U.S. and European allies to eliminate Iraq’s nuclear threat. In the tradition of Black Hawk Down, journalist Rodger Claire re-creates a gripping tale of personal sacrifice and survival, of young pilots who trained in the United States on the then-new, radically sophisticated F-16 fighter bombers, then faced a nearly insurmountable challenge: how to fly the 1,000-plus-kilometer mission to Baghdad and back on one tank of fuel. He recounts Israeli intelligence’s incredible “black ops” to sabotage construction on the French reactor and eliminate Iraqi nuclear scientists, and he gives the reader a pilot’s-eye view of the action on June 7, 1981, when the planes roared off a runway on the Sinai Peninsula for the first successful destruction of a nuclear reactor in history.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

"A modern conservative classic." - Sean Hannity "Men in Black couldn’t be more timely or important….a tremendously important and compelling book.” - Rush Limbaugh “One of the finest books on the Constitution and the judiciary I’ve read in a long time….There is no better source for understanding and grasping the seriousness of this issue.” - Edwin Meese III “The Supreme Court has broken through the firewalls constructed by the framers to limit judicial power.” “America’s founding fathers had a clear and profound vision for what they wanted our federal government to be,” says constitutional scholar Mark R. Levin in his explosive book, Men in Black. “But today, our out-of-control Supreme Court imperiously strikes down laws and imposes new ones to suit its own liberal whims––robbing us of our basic freedoms and the values on which our country was founded.” In Men in Black: How the Supreme Court Is Destroying America, Levin exposes countless examples of outrageous Supreme Court abuses, from promoting racism in college admissions, expelling God and religion from the public square, forcing states to confer benefits on illegal aliens, and endorsing economic socialism to upholding partial-birth abortion, restraining political speech, and anointing terrorists with rights. Levin writes: “Barely one hundred justices have served on the United States Supreme Court. They’re unelected, they’re virtually unaccountable, they’re largely unknown to most Americans, and they serve for life…in many ways the justices are more powerful than members of Congress and the president.… As few as five justices can and do dictate economic, cultural, criminal, and security policy for the entire nation.” In Men in Black, you will learn: How the Supreme Court protects virtual child pornography and flag burning as forms of free speech but denies teenagers the right to hear an invocation mentioning God at a high school graduation ceremony because it might be “coercive.” How a former Klansman and virulently anti-Catholic Supreme Court justice inserted the words “wall of separation” between church and state in a 1947 Supreme Court decision––a phrase repeated today by those who claim to stand for civil liberty. How Justice Harry Blackmun, a one-time conservative appointee and the author of Roe v. Wade, was influenced by fan mail much like an entertainer or politician, which helped him to evolve into an ardent activist for gay rights and against the death penalty. How the Supreme Court has dictated that illegal aliens have a constitutional right to attend public schools, and that other immigrants qualify for welfare benefits, tuition assistance, and even civil service jobs.
