Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you are a leftist out to profit at the expense of the hard-working taxpayer, Jason Mattera is here to expose your stinking hypocrisy. No one is safe from Mattera's hard-hitting, meticulously reported, and genuinely funny investigative journalism. Crapitalism blows the lid off crony capitalism." (--Monica Crowley, New York Times bestselling author of What the (Bleep) Just Happened?)

"Mattera names names -- and frauds, schemes, and grifters to boot. Enjoy Crapitalism because its subjects won't." (Hugh Hewitt)

Praise for  HOLLYWOOD HYPOCRITES

“Eye-popping, exhaustively researched, and absolutely hilarious.” (Mark Levin)

“Oozing with juicy details.” (U.S. News and World Report)

“Mattera seems to have been born with a special talent for driving liberals nuts.” (The American Spectator)

“Mattera’s marvelous compendium of celebrity arrogance is guaranteed to make your blood boil . . . but it’s also guaranteed to make you laugh out loud.” (Human Events)

PRAISE FOR OBAMA ZOMBIES:

“Piercing, eye-opening, and deliciously witty, Obama Zombies is required reading for an entire generation who have been sold liberal lies."  (Ann Coulter)

“Explosive, devastating, and rib-crackingly hilarious, Obama Zombies is a must-read for every citizen who cares about protecting freedom for future generations of America." (Michelle Malkin)

About the Author

Jason Mattera is the New York Times bestselling author Obama Zombies and Hollywood Hypocrites. He served as the youngest editor of a national periodical, Human Events, and as a broadcaster with the legendary news talk radio 77 WABC in New York City. His “ambush interviews” of top liberals, including Vice President Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner, and Hillary Clinton, have become Internet legends. Ann Coulter crowned Mattera a “national treasure,” Michelle Malkin says his work is a “heat-seeking missile aimed at the Cult of Obama,” and POLITICO named him Washington, DC’s “bad boy reporter.” He is the publisher of the hard-hitting news and entertainment site Daily Surge.

I was fortunate to receive an advanced copy of Crapitalism, and burned through it in a day. Mattera's writing style is edgy, funny, witty and his observations of libs behaving badly is spot-on...a combo that few conservatives are able to package together. I loved Mattera's other books Obama Zombies and Hollywood Hypocrites, and this book is just as great. I really appreciated that while the tone was humor-filled, the book was a solid, hard-hitting expose on Americas most wanted crony capitalists. Thank you Mr. Mattera for writing another awesome book and making it easier to pick out the bad guys in the jailhouse line up!

I did enjoy it, and I do appreciate Mattera's research, specially the chapter on so-called "libertarian" Elon Musk. I still think Hollywood Hypocrites is a much better book, and much longer too. For the price I paid, I expected more pages, and not just sources and annotations.

To be fair, the book is more about exposing wrongdoers than how to fix the problems, but then again, the solutions at the end of the book are quite brilliant. If you stop giving companies special treatment, they won't need to hire lobbyists. Of course, I do think Jason should have explored more why companies hire lobbyists in the first place, and it's not just to get special benefits, it's to survive. Ask the makers of powder alcohol and the pressure they're facing from legislators who want to ban their products, ask developers of electronic cigarettes, there's always some congressman that's not afraid to ban products.

I do agree that the crony capitalists or "crapitalists" are a scourge that needs to be dealt with. But as a right-libertarian, I do believe that the fault always starts with government. Carlos Slim for example may be a crook, but it's the government that enables his cookery by taxing us so poor people can get emergency phones that Slim sells. Sadly, until Americans are ready to renounce socialism, reject collectivism, embrace individualism, hate class warfare, and embrace a true free market, the crapitalists will remain in power.

It is infuriating as a taxpeyer to think that we are enriching the likes of these leeches. Lots of room for further cuts in the Federal budget.

Not only do crony capitalists and their politician friends cost the nation vast amounts of $, they are also often hypocrites, and sometimes dishonest, while uttering platitudes about income equality or Green Energy. Jason Mattera is sarcastic and convincing, though in a few cases I felt like giving more benefit of the doubt. But only a few. If you want to know why the rich get richer under Obama the redistributionist, when the rest of us stay stagnant, this book explains one big reason. If you want to know why the economy is increasingly unfair under Obama who constantly stresses fairness, then read this book.

I'm a big fan of Mattera's previous books, Obama Zombies and Hollywood Hypocrites. He has a real talent for making salient points, undergirded by exhaustive research, with a hilarious writing style.

Crapitalism is no different. Mattera takes on those in government, big business, and even professional sports who live large on our dime. I really enjoyed how he formatted the book; it's delivered in 27 chapters with each 'crapitalist' getting his or her own dossier, if you will. I read the book in one sitting because it's that good, but if you didn't have the time, each chapter is a stand-alone product. So you can pick up and put down Crapitalism at your own pace.

Mattera also does a great job mixing his targets up with household names, but with also people who aren't as well known, but after Crapitalism, will be. And even with the household names, I found myself learning something new. Maxine Waters' elaborate scheme to cash in on her endorsements -- and hooking up her kids (and grandkid!) in the process. Same thing with Jay-Z, Elon Musk, Rep. Greg Meeks, and George Soros. I learned something new about each person.

It's not just that these crapitalists are picking our pockets. They're such PHONIES as well. Crapitalism is brilliant because Mattera also weaves in a 'do as I say, not as I do' theme to drive home the point that those who preach the loudest about looking out for the middle class are actually the most egregious in fleecing those very same people.

I could go on and on, but the bottom line is this: You need to read this book. Then you need to buy a copy for every person you know. Capitalism has a bad rap today not because of free markets, but because of the perversion of those free markets.

Mattera sets the record straight.

I like this book and its author, very much. Mattera has wonderfl biting wit and always makes a fun and informative read. The only issue I have with this book is the VERY noticeable absence of The Swamp Queen herself, Nancy Pelosi. I hope that Jason has omitted her in this volume because he will need an entire book's length to list the extent of so much wallowing in the trough. PLEASE, Mr Mattera, your next book to be titled: The Creature from the Blue Lagoon!
