Book Description

With mid-term elections right around the corner, David Thomas Roberts couldn’t have timed the release of his new book any better. Patriotic to the core, and passionate about all things ‘Texas,’ this is Roberts’ second foray into the political thriller arena. A State of Treason (Defiance Press) is a hair-raising cautionary tale that throws liberty-loving Texans and their governor into a whirlwind of danger in their fight for freedom. “The book is sure to have an impact on anyone who feels the government is threatening individual liberties by overstepping their power in open contempt of the Constitution,” says Roberts.

Thanks to a U.S. President with outward contempt for the Founding Fathers and the limits of the U.S. Constitution, and an administration that is constantly embroiled in scandals, the U.S. electorate is more polarized than in any other time in modern history.

Determined to eradicate its political enemies, namely the Tea Party, the administration orders unconstitutional actions that include warrantless arrests of its Texas members.



As the Governor of Texas (self-described mortal enemy of the president) orders the rescue of a Tea Party organizer being held by the feds, it sets off a cataclysmic power struggle between officials in Texas and Beltway politicians that results in arrest warrants of duly elected state officials.

As history has shown us, there is a price for freedom, and as the ripple effect of the crisis in Texas is felt around the world, the president suspends the 2nd Amendment and declares martial law in a frantic attempt to stop the people of Texas voting for Independence. Texas is now in A State of Treason…

Mirroring many events in our country today, the book is already drawing high praise in early reviews. Readers agree it has all the twists, turns and intrigue of a Vince Flynn novel with an electrifying pace that keeps them frantically turning pages, but not wanting it to end. Destined to become another bestseller, Roberts’ latest novel is an adrenaline-pumping read all the way to its climactic ending!



David Roberts is a sought-after speaker, serial entrepreneur and successful businessman. Active in politics, he frequently speaks to groups regarding business and Constitutional issues and is a requested speaker for statewide Tea Party organizations. Roberts is the Founder and CEO of Teligistics, Inc., a leading global telecom technology solutions and consulting provider, handling complex telecommunications contracts of many Fortune 500® clients. His white papers and other published works are considered the industry-standard for Best Practices regarding the sourcing of telecom-related services, and he has served as an expert witness in numerous high-profile telecommunications trials.

Recently adding a publishing company to his list of business ventures, Roberts also owns and operates a music recording studio geared for Texas country artists. As a published author, he is proving a hot contender in the political thriller genre; his first novel Patriots of Treason having hit several bestsellers lists. His inaugural business book on entrepreneurship is slated to be released late this year.


Editorial Reviews

Review

''The President should've paid attention to the old advertising slogan: 'Don't Mess with Texas'... a gutsy political thriller with non-stop action, combining Tom-Clancyesque technical and political detail alongside dialogue and fast-moving action reminiscent of Western novels. The fast-paced action follows a broad cast of characters in both the White House and in Austin as Roberts weaves a tale that is very fanciful without being completely unbelievable.'' --Dave Mundy, General Manager & Editor, The Gonzales Cannon Newspaper

''...This book illustrates how important it is to elect liberty-loving leaders who are more willing to rebel than compromise. A State of Treason is ripped from today's headlines--the federal government is indeed lawless, anti-Constitutional, and oppressive. Tyranny is devouring our freedom and Texans must soon decide how long these evils are sufferable. Because when Texans finally say 'Enough is enough!' we will enter a long-delayed State of Treason and there will be no option other than to win--or die.'' --Heidi Hansing Theiss, Radio Host, Tea Party Activist, City Council Member

About the Author

Growing up in San Antonio, Texas David Thomas Roberts made regular trips to The Alamo with visiting family, friends, and schoolmates. The story of The Alamo, the spirit of all its Texian Heroes, and the fight for Texas independence left an indelible impression on him that has endured a lifetime. As a ''naturalized'' Texan, Roberts has become a staunch defender and admirer of all things Texas, including the Republic's rich history of fierce independence, self-reliance, liberty, unique history, culture and people. Robert is a serial entrepreneur and CEO of a technology firm he founded and owns several businesses. He is active in politics and is an accomplished public speaker. Roberts lives in Montgomery, Texas--the birthplace of the Lone Star flag with his wife of 30+years. Together, they have four grown children and one grandchild, all whom have been blessed to have been born ''Native Texans''.

The winds of secession are blowing again in the State of Texas.In this all too real fictional novel ,David Thomas Roberts creates an account of the unfolding of events as Texas proceedes to put into action processes that will lead to its independence from the Union.Although supposedly " a fictional narrative,the stotyline and the characters are for entertainment purposes only.It is not intended to imply any real person actually made statements,nor acted in any manner consistent with the storyline of this novel." As you read this novel,you will feel that it is uncanny in both the believability of the main characters and their actions;and some of what is taking place today;that it will send shivers up your spine.If this novel was written 10 or so years ago,it would easily be dismissed as pure hokum,;but not so today.
Texas has had more than it can take from actions by Washington and now are going to put it to the people in a vote to see if they want to secede.The Federal Government,decides to use any and every means possible,whether legal or not to prevent Texas from breaking away from the Union.
There are no holds barred ,and it doesn't take long for lives to be lost.
An interesting and appropriate concept used by the author is to start of each of the 51 chapters with a quotation from historical and recent American and world leaders who made profound statements concerning Rights,Patriotism,Tyranny,Liberty,Dissent,Consent,Protest,Constitution and the Right to Bear Arms,Revolution,Rebellion,etc.;all which are part of living in and believing in Life,Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Such things happened before in America's history and the abuse of power can result in such happenings again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action, action, action! October 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Again, this book could be pulled from today's headlines. It picks up where the previous book (Patriot's of Freedom) left off. Exciting from the first pages. You will not be able to put this book down. I found the direction of the book to be very believable. I also loved the ending. If you like action and relevant subject matter, you will love this book. Hope the author has a third book in the works!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sparta reborn March 2, 2015
Format:Paperback
At the outset, I should note that this review is based on a review copy of *A State of Treason*.

Mr. Roberts' new book is heroic fiction of the first order. His well-constructed writing is direct and eloquent. Be aware that the emotion his book evokes can be trying at times. Periodically, I had to disengage from reading in order to compose myself. On occasion, the story offers a powerful hint of the Constitutional issues involved, which combined with the quotes preceding each chapter, are educationally suggestive for those willing to pursue their own investigations. My single criticism is that the author made an effort to tie up loose ends too abrubtly, within the final few pages. Still, the reading, and pleasure therefrom, proceeded wonderfully!

Broad outline of the book's content, as story, is adequately described in other reviews here. I shall not duplicate their work. However, I'd like to make a couple of points.

The first, within Mr. Roberts' novel, is the centrality of the Texas Rangers as a law enforcement agency in perfect accord with Texas in its conflict with the Federal Government. By an odd coincidence, this morning I came upon a news item from Texas. On February 14, in Bryan, Texas, a meeting of an organization named Republic of Texas was raided by FBI agents, and among others, the Texas Rangers. All of the attendees were fingerprinted and photographed; all cell phones and personal recording devices were confiscated. No arrests were made.

Second, more than once within the novel, a character's question is asked rhetorically to the effect of: "How did the United States get to this point . . .". The point being not only the specific conflict immediate in the story, but the many decades (if not longer), prefatory to the story's main conflict.

5.0 out of 5 stars `You Are There' February 12, 2015
Format:Hardcover
During the mid-20th century there was first a radio show followed by the powerful CBS television series featuring Walter Cronkite called YOU ARE THERE - an important American historical educational program that reenacted historical events. That is the tenor of this new novel - the credible immediacy of his well thought out plot and characterization places the reader directly in the middle of a crisis that could easily happen. It is docudrama/historical fiction/terrifying `what if' as is fine as any being offered today.

Author David Thomas Roberts, in his brief biography is summarized as follows: `Originally from southern Illinois, David Thomas Roberts moved to San Antonio, Texas in 1967 when he was eight years old. His family made regular trips to the Alamo with family, friends, neighbors and visiting relatives during the1968 World's Fair, "Hemisphere '68 and in years after." The story of The Alamo, the spirit of all its Texan heroes, and the fight for Texas independence left an indelible impression on him that has endured a lifetime. As a "naturalized" Texan, Roberts has become a staunch defender and admirer of all things Texas, including her rich and unique history, politics, culture and people. The author is active in politics and the movement for modern-day Texas Independence, and has been a speaker at Tea Party events. Roberts is a serial Entrepreneur and is the CEO of a Houston, Texas area technology firm focused on telecommunications. Roberts holds a U.S. Patent and has one patent pending. Roberts lives in Texas with his wife of 29 years. They have four children and one grandchild, all of whom have been blessed to have been born "Native Texans.
