More About the Author

Kurt Schlichter writes, with a pronounced conservative edge, as a weekly columnist for Townhall.com. His new book "Conservative Insurgency: The Struggle to Take America Back 2009-2041" is set for release On July 15, 2014 from Post Tree Press.

Kurt was personally recruited by Andrew Breitbart in 2009 to write first for Big Hollywood, and then for Breitbart.com's Big Government, Big Journalism and Big Peace sites. His freelance work has also been published in major papers like the New York Post, the Washington Examiner, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, the Washington Times, the Army Times, and the San Francisco Examiner.

Kurt is often on the air as a news source, an on-screen commentator, and as a guest on nationally syndicated radio programs discussing political, military and legal issues, including Fox News, the Hugh Hewitt Show, the Dennis Miller Show, Geraldo, the Greg Garrison Show, the John Phillips Show, the Tony Katz Radio Spectacular, PJTV's The Conversation, The Delivery with Jimmie Bise, Jr., the Snark Factor, and WMAL's Mornings on the Mall with Larry O'Connor, among others.

He appears weekly on the Cam and Company Show with his own brand of caring conservative cultural commentary.

As a stand-up comic for several years, he has gathered a large and devoted following in the world of social media for his amusing and often biting conservative commentary. He is an active user of Twitter (@KurtSchlichter) with over 36,000 followers, which led to his #1 selling Amazon "Political Humor" ebooks "I Am a Conservative: Uncensored, Undiluted and Absolutely Un-PC," "I Am a Liberal: A Conservative's Guide to Dealing With Nature's Most Irritating Mistake," "Fetch My Latte: Sharing Feelings With Stupid People," and "50 Shades of Liberal."


Kurt is also a successful trial lawyer based in the Los Angeles area representing companies and individuals in matters ranging from routine business cases to confidential Hollywood and entertainment industry disputes and transactions. A member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which recognizes attorneys who have won verdicts in excess of $1 million, his litigation strategy and legal analysis articles regularly run in such legal publications such as the Los Angeles Daily Journal and California Lawyer.

Kurt is a 1994 graduate of Loyola Law School, where he was a law review editor. He majored in Communications and Political Science as an undergraduate at the University of California, San Diego, where he also edited the conservative student paper California Review while writing a regular column in the student humor paper the Koala. He also drank a lot of Coors.

Kurt rose to the rank of Army infantry colonel on active duty and in the California Army National Guard. He wears the silver "jump wings" of a qualified paratrooper and commanded the elite 1st Squadron, 18th Cavalry Regiment. A veteran of both the Persian Gulf War and Operation Enduring Freedom (Kosovo), as well as the Los Angeles riots, the Northridge earthquake and the 2007 San Diego fires mobilizations, he is a graduate of the Army's Combined Arms Staff Service School, the Command and General Staff College, and the United States Army War College, where he received a master of Strategic Studies degree.

He loves military history, red meat and the Second Amendment. His favorite caliber is .45.

Kurt is married to Irina and has two children. He also owns the Hideous Terrier. He lives in the South Bay area of Los Angeles.

Kurt Schlichter is a US Army Colonel, an LA Lawyer, and a one-time stand-up comedian. He is also required Twitter reading for the sort of conservatives who yearn for full engagement with the Enemy. All of those things come out in this fun takedown of the radical American left, from Occupy to the racist policies the Democrat party has championed throughout its history.

If you're looking at this book, you've almost certainly come across Mr. Schlichter on Twitter. If you enjoy his posts there, you'll like "I Am a Liberal", which expands on some familiar themes while opening a few new fronts in the War on Socialism. Hey, it's a 4/5 star review; I clearly enjoyed it. Buy the book. It'll make you a more #caring human being.

Now, let the nit-picking commence.

I admit I was hoping for a bit more Ann Coulter, and a bit less Rodney Dangerfield, than what I found. In other words, more of the sort of article Mr. Schlichter posts on the Breitbart website - those tend to be rather good. Unfortunately, you can see the Lawyer's legal briefs and the Colonel's reports come out in occasional runs of choppy prose, while the stand-up comedian dominates the pages and pages of Twitter-style one-liners. The tweets are often fun, but at times feel like filler when coming down from a particularly well-argued chapter. It hurts the flow, and I find myself flipping through tweets to get to the next chapter. Alternatively, a single favorite tweet might make a great subtitle for each chapter. It'd be a more effective way to tie the Twitter audience into a larger effort than pages of familiar, but out-of-place, tweets. (Kurt - that idea's free)

I think Kurt Schlichter has in him the potential to start writing Conservative must-reads; he just needs to transition from Twitter Airborne into Literary Operator. Developing enough confidence and capability as a writer to leave the one-liners behind and write a full-throated novel will take him there.

If you're not following Kurt Schlichter on twitter, you should be. He's hilarious, sarcastic and dead right. In his second ebook, Kurt digs into the Liberal mindset, a most frightening journey. With "I Am A Liberal", Kurt attacks the liberal argument theory of not arguing on facts or logic, but by loud volume and violence. From there, he punches holes in smugness from liberals who, in Kurt's world, should be fetching him his latte.

The book is great, and makes a good antidote to the MMFA-led bias factory. Give this book to your fellow liberals, and show them that you are indeed #caring.

This is Kurt's second book. It is the second I have read and the second I have reviewed.

Hey! @KurtSchlichter ! I've reviewed BOTH your books! [...]

It is funnier than the first and worth every penny. I am not saying that just because I'm mentioned in there, either.

I'm saying it because, if Kurt sells enough copies, he'll buy me a beer.

It was fantastic. I laughed until my anus ruptured. You may want to sit on an absorbent towel or possibly puppy training pads. something before you read this.

There is a time and a place to get angry and to work against collectivist political candidates, and to encounter prissy morons who think your property should be their property because they just prefer it.

And there is also an abundance of time for what may rightly be the focus of your life, the pursuit of your own personal happiness. Achieving your goals, spending time with who and what you are passionate about. Right up there with the peak of human experiences must be laughter.

That's what Kurt knows and communicates so cleverly. Laugh at evil, for it is impotent.

CONS: You will not be able to put this book down and your kindle will have to be wiped down frequently from laughter spittle.

If you don't enjoy this book...stop breeding. You're part of the problem. Limit your social footprint, loser. If you do like this book, you're probably a normal frustrated tax payer, carry on.

Here's what I think: [...] so yeah, go ahead and buy this bad boy. Don't worry about people staring at you when you laugh out loud.

Chapter 6's History of America was pure awesomeness. It is worth buying the book for that chapter alone. This was informative, entertaining and teaches you all you need to know about dealing with liberal trolls on Twitter. Can't wait for the next book!
