Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Scathing Indictment of Donald Trump on the Eve of the 2020 Election Un-American? President Donald J. Trump has been called many names, but how can this term apply to a candidate and president whose slogan is “make America great again?” How can such a term apply to the “America First” president? In this book, John J. Pitney Jr., one of America’s most incisive conservative commentators exposes a core irony of Trump’s presidency: that a man who is quick to question the patriotism of his critics is himself deeply unpatriotic. Pitney argues that real Americanism is about ideas and ideals: truth, equality, the rule of law, patriotic service, and the hope that America can serve as an example to the rest of the world. By words and actions, Trump has disparaged all of these things. Through an examination of his record, this book tells how Trump subverts genuine American greatness.

Book excerpt: In The Aftermath, Julie Atwood is settling into a new normal in remote Smoky Flats, along with her son and father. While the U.S. continues spiraling into violence and instability, Julie and her family hone their survival skills as they prepare to endure their first harsh winter in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. Joining with others and building new friendships, Julie bolsters Smoky Flats’ security, sense of community, and commerce among residents. Together, they protect themselves from outside intruders, mountain lions, and food shortages. Meanwhile, back in Oregon, life for Julie’s ex-husband, Steve, and his new infant, worsens. He falls victim to a crumbling employment sector and housing crisis, and is forced to live in horrendous conditions while working to further a radical liberal agenda. His money and supplies are quickly dwindling, and nearby protests are becoming more violent. Before long, Steve is beholden to a local gang and their demands on him become a matter of life or death. Although hundreds of miles apart, Julie and Steve’s worlds collide when circumstances become so grim that he is forced to ask for Julie’s help to save his daughter’s life. Julie is now faced with a dilemma. She must weigh her moral obligation to help an innocent person against putting her own life in danger to do so. In this second book of the A Great State trilogy, the everyday realities for those who prepared clash with the realities of those who did not. Lives are lost, and danger and uncertainty creep around every corner. Despite it all, there remains a sense of hope and renewal, and a vision for a future when people and the country can thrive again.

Download or read book The Philosophy of Geography written by Timothy Tambassi and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2021-08-23 with total page 244 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The relationship between geography and philosophy is still largely in need of being explored. Geographers and philosophers share the responsibility for that. On the one hand, geographers have considered as a dangerous deviation any attempt to elaborate an image of the Earth which was not a mere replica of a cartographic representation. On the other hand, philosophers have generally been uninterested in a discipline offering little chance for critical reflection. In light of these considerations, the purpose of this book is to identify some fundamental philosophical issues involved in the reflection of geography by adopting a perspective which looks at the discipline with a specific focus on its fundamental concepts and distinctions.

Book excerpt: "Read Fake President….This book can help us replace Trump with truth." —Gloria Steinem "Terrific new book. Fake President informs as it entertains." --Laurence Tribe​ An incisive & witty look at the cost of lies on American lives Fake President—the prequel to this book—in 2019 gathered in one convenient volume Donald Trump's epic lack of intelligence, integrity, stability, and honesty. The evidence was over-whelming that our Lyin' King was incapable of performing his Constitutional duties. Then it got worse when he descended into a Fascism 2.0 as he approached the Fall election. The lethal confluence of three calamities in the Spring of 2020—Covid-19, economic chaos, and generations of racial injustice—exposed the extravagant price of “having a terrible president at a terrible time,” in Rachel Maddow’s withering phrase. Wrecking America is the most up-to-date look atTrump's anything-goes fascistic term and campaign. It reveals how Trump's daily "twistifications" (a Jefferson coinage) are killing tens of thousands of Americans and millions of American jobs, polluting the air and public debate, selling out his country for personal gain, and trying to "Make the Confederacy Great Again," as he preoccupies himself with golfing, seething, and tweeting. This November will test our 231-year experiment in self-governance like no time since 1860 and 1932. Will it be re-election or realignment? A Fascism for the few or democracy for all? The wrecking ball or the “Best America”? This book's premise is that informed voters in a democracy will do what's right for their families, their communities, and their country.

Book excerpt: What politicians and the media don't want you to know. Millions of Americans at both ends of the political spectrum are angry and fed up with being lied to by politicians and the media.

Thumbing his nose at political correctness, negotiation expert and political commentator Ed Brodow exposes the outrageous lies that have been disseminated about the most important issues of our time. He tells the uncensored truth about the threat of Islamic extremism, global warming, the welfare entitlement system, Obamacare, racial tension and other important things that our elected representatives don’t want you to know. If you vote in national elections, the candor of In Lies We Trust will help you make decisions based on facts instead of misinformation.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book delves into the life and work of President Donald Trump, who is arguably the most famous and controversial person in the world today. While his administration has received enormous attention, few have studied the spatial dimensions of his policies. Political Landscapes of Donald Trump explores the geographies of Trump from multiple conceptual standpoints. It contextualizes Donald and his rise to power within the geography of his victory in 2016. Several essays in the book are concerned with his white ethno-nationalist political platform and social bases of support. Others focus on Trump’s use of Twitter, his ties to professional wrestling, and his innumerable lies and deceits. Yet another set delves into the geopolitics of his foreign policies, notably in Cuba, Korea, the Middle East, and China. Finally, it covers how his administration has addressed – or failed to address – climate change and its treatment of undocumented immigrants. This book will be of interest to anyone interested in the Trump administration, as well as social scientists and the informed lay public.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The purpose of this book is to focus on how Donald Trump’s cruelty, negligence, corruption, dishonesty, racism, lies and malevolence have combined to put democracy in America into crisis. The majority of the comments in this book have been ripped from the print and social media headlines. This book is not a series of paragraphs citing the Trump presidency. It is instead a series of bulletize comments related to Donald Trump. Its primary purpose is to remind readers where we have been, what has been said and done. Hopefully, it will provide the knowledge we need as we approach the 2020 elections. Publication of this book was not in time for the Nov 2018 mid-term elections. However, it will be published well in advance of 2020. As such, please remember the 2020 election is not so much about Republicans vs Democrats. It is about saving our country of 330 million people from becoming an authoritarian state ruled by a wanna-be dictator/paranoid builder, his dress design daughter, his despot loving son-of a felon son-in-law.

Book excerpt: In 2014, the ethics and politics of hospitality were brought into stark relief. Three years into the Syrian conflict, which had already created nearly 2.5 million refugees and internally displaced 6.5 million, the UN called on industrialised countries to share the burden of offering hospitality through a fixed quota system. The UK opted out of the system whilst hailing their acceptance of a moral responsibility by welcoming only 500 of the ‘most vulnerable’ Syrians. Given the state’s exclusionary character, what opportunities do other spaces in international politics offer by way of hospitality to migrants and refugees? Hospitality can take many different forms and have many diverse purposes. But wherever it occurs, the boundaries that enable it and make it possible are both created and unsettled via exercises of power and their resistance. Through modern examples including refugee camps, global cities, postcolonial states and Europe, as well as analysis of Derridean and Foucauldian concepts, Migration, Ethics and Power explores: The process and practice of hospitality The spaces that hospitality produces The intimate relationship between ethics and power This is a brilliantly contemporary text for students of politics, international relations and political geography.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Some of America’s best reporters and thinkers offer an urgent look at a country in chaos in this collection of timely, often prophetic articles from The Atlantic. The past four years in the United States have been among the most turbulent in our history—and would have been so even without a global pandemic and waves of protest nationwide against police violence. Drawn from the recent work of The Atlantic staff writers and contributors, The American Crisis explores the factors that led us to the present moment: racial division, economic inequality, political dysfunction, the hollowing out of government, the devaluation of truth, and the unique threat posed by Donald Trump. Today’s emergencies expose pathologies years in the making. Featuring leading voices from The Atlantic, one of the country’s most widely read and influential magazines, The American Crisis is a broad and essential look at the condition of America today—and at the qualities of national character that may yet offer hope.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book contains a number of essays that address the decline of America and the causes of our impending demise. America is racing toward the graveyard of nations and is leaderless, we have lost our moral compass, our government is corrupt to the core and we are reaping the benefits of an entitlement society. Meanwhile, we have dumbed down our education so that in many cases, high school graduates cannot fill out an unemployment form, high school graduates? Our religious leaders have lost their way and preach more social issues than salvation. The abortuaries have killed over 55 million and counting of our unborn and continue to do so, while politicians wring their hands over political correctness. It is the author’s hope that the reader will be made aware of these nation destroying trends and will react to vote for real leaders or this nation is heading for the graveyard of nations

Summary Book Review Living Cargo :

Download or read book Living Cargo written by Steven Blevins and published by U of Minnesota Press. This book was released on 2016-10-15 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Offering a wide-ranging study of contemporary literature, film, visual art, and performance by writers and artists who live and work in the United Kingdom but also maintain strong ties to postcolonial Africa and the Caribbean, Living Cargo explores how contemporary black British culture makers have engaged with the institutional archives of colonialism and the Atlantic slave trade in order to reimagine blackness in British history and to make claims for social and political redress. Steven Blevins calls this reimagining “unhousing history”—an aesthetic and political practice that animates and improvises on the institutional archive, repurposing it toward different ends and new possibilities. He discusses the work of novelists, including Caryl Phillips, Fred D’Aguiar, David Dabydeen, and Bernardine Evaristo; filmmakers Isaac Julien and Inge Blackman; performance poet Dorothea Smartt; fashion designer Ozwald Boateng; artists Hew Locke and Yinka Shonibare; and the urban redevelopment of Bristol, England, which unfolded alongside the public demand to remember the city’s slave-trading past. Living Cargo argues that the colonial archive is neither static nor residual but emergent. By reassembling historical fragments and traces consolidated in the archive, these artists not only perform a kind of counter-historiography, they also imagine future worlds that might offer amends for the atrocities of the past.
