Editorial Reviews

Review

"Please, God, make it so. Not the part about Bobby Jindal only getting to be VP, but at least 90% of Kurt's crystal ball look into what could be, not what has been; how things could turn, not as they are likely to turn out right now. Schlichter's genius --and it is genius-- is to make it all possible based upon a single premise: That conservatives will play to win. A stretch of course, an enormous stretch, but not greater than that of 1776, 1789, 1860, 1944 or 1980. Read it and be inspired." - Hugh Hewitt, Author, commentator and national radio host

“Here's how the conservative movement won - from 30 years in the future. Kurt Schlichter's creative and fascinating take on how conservatives can achieve victory is an optimistic breath of fresh air in a dark time.” - Ben Shapiro, Bestselling author, conservative columnist and radio host

“This is a great read, provides a good way forward, and offers a new concept for how conservatives should be writing books about their future.” - Erick Erickson, Fox News Commentator, Redstate.com editor and radio host

“A fascinating read.” - David Limbaugh, Bestselling author and conservative commentator

“This book is exactly the electric jolt of inspiration that grass-roots activists on the Right need…. I’m energized and ready to fight!” - Michelle Malkin, Bestselling author and Fox News commentator

“Conservative Insurgency captures the spirit of my friend Andrew Breitbart with a no-holds-barred, bare-knuckle brawl for the heart and soul of our country.” - Dan Loesch, BlazeTV host and Fox News commentator

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.

There's been an Ann Coulter book, once.
Jeffrey Webster
Within Heinlein's works is a ubiquitous endorsement of individual rights of life, liberty, property, and love coupled with success through individual effort.
Paul Matuszak
For his debut hardbound book, Kurt shows his fiction writing chops.

There are few books I can go through in a single sitting. There's been an Ann Coulter book, once. Then there was one of the dozens of Glenn Beck books that come out annually. Michelle Malkin's "Culture of Corruption" was another that kept me glued. But it's been a while.

Now Kurt Schlichter's new book comes out and I've found another book that I couldn't put down. A lot of it is a comfortable read since I'm familiar with Kurt's previous works, as well as his active participation with his followers and the leftists on Twitter. He, unlike so many other conservatives, has a good realization of the power we wield with truth. Truths that reveal themselves to individuals as they start to get curious about how they're being lied to.

They ought to read this book. But the title alone is probably too much for them to bear while they're still in the larval stage.

The point is, Kurt puts things into perspective very well. You're going to have to just read it yourself - nary a spoiler in this review. Just know that it's written by someone that understands what progressivism is, and what it is not. He knows that what looks like ineptness is actually intentional and serves as a means to an end.

Buy it. Read it. Tell others.

I have been reading Kurt Schlicter's material for a few years now. Possessing a biting wit and brilliant mind, Kurt's writing never disappoints. In addition to his numerous op ed pieces, Kurt has previous self published 4 e-book ruthlessly and hilariously skewed “progressive” elites.

For his debut hardbound book, Kurt shows his fiction writing chops. Conservative Insurgency is written from the perspective of the early 2040's and chronicles how American patriots have taken their country back from the ruling “Progressive” elites. The interview format highlights several characters instrumental in bringing America back from the brink of the abyss. While passing reference is made to real people (Andrew Breitbart, “Vice President” Bobby Jindal, Chris and/or Dana Loesch [Loesch vs United States]) the people “interviewed” by the writer seems to be an amalgamation of real people. I can see many characteristics of those in Constitutional Conservative grass roots in the characters portrayed.

While a fictitious reading of how America was saved from its domestic enemies, the tome also reads as a play book on how Patriots can make the envisioned fictitious future a reality. I regard “Conservative Insurgency” as the sequel to Andrew Breitbart's “Righteous Indignation” in that it portrays the natural outcome of the fight Andrew Breitbart started. An outcome which is inevitable if we continue to fight.

Schlichter has spun pure gold. This is a remarkable peek into what a national move back to traditional, conservative American values would/could look like. The characters were familiar and relatable, like you've known at least some of them for most of your life. The plot is simplistic but brilliant, much like true common sense. It really opens eyes and at least begins to restore faith that America is not already lost to the politically progressive cesspool we've been systematically driven to over the last 2 decades. This isn't your garden variety political read, this is special. If everybody read this book, we could expedite the turn around that Schlichter so brilliantly describes. This is a MUST read for any constitutionally minded American!

In 'Conservative Insurgency' Kurt Schlichter reminds us that what is true in personal trials and tribulations is just as true when it comes to the trials and tribulations of a nation fighting the insidious rot of progressivism: defeat is only defeat if it is accepted.

Having followed Mr. Schlichter's work on Townhall, Breitbart and elsewhere, I know he never has nor ever will accept defeat when it comes to the county we all love and want to see preserved. 'Conservative Insurgency' shows us like-minded fellow citizens who recognized their power as such - citizens of a country founded on the power of the individual - to fight according to their strengths and abilities and thus do the most good where it was needed. It is hopeful but also cautious. Above all, it's entertaining as all get out.

Mr. Schlichter has one of those amusingly endangered progressives by book's send sputter "America doesn't deserve liberalism!"

No, no it doesn't. The call to arms of 'Conservative Insurgency' is to make sure it never does.

Format: Hardcover
In this latest effort, Kurt changes course in several ways. Much of his humor is still present in this fictional, future history novel. However, it takes a more serious tone than his previous e-books.Though the work is more serious, it is highly entertaining.

The future history genre is not new to political fiction. Ayn Rand is rather famous for it, looking at her works from "Atlas Shrugged" to "Anthem" to "The Fountainhead". Robert A. Heinlein also used the genre to present his small-government, libertarian viewpoints. Heinlein went so far as to use the genre to push for many conservative ideals as well as a social morality shift that tolerated polyamory, bisexuality, and limited "contract" marriages. Within Heinlein's works is a ubiquitous endorsement of individual rights of life, liberty, property, and love coupled with success through individual effort. Heinlein's works, including his non-fiction "Take Back Your Government" may have influenced Schlichter's latest work. If so, Kurt accomplished this latest work while masterfully avoiding the "fan-fict" quagmire to produce a wonderful and original novel.
