Review

Contains unique Zogby polling information that shows just who the 30% of Americans are that don't pay taxes - and who they will vote for.

Contains a fascinating analysis of Obama's psychological makeup, and why it precludes him from the presidency.

Disturbing revelations about Obama's pro-choice stance and his collectivist goals for America's children.

Extensive TV advertising campaign planned, with professionally produced ads showing how Obama's policies will destroy America's economy and entrepreneurial spirit.

Extensive print/online/radio advertising campaign planned including ads in Denver media during the Democratic convention. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

In the shocking political expose The Audacity of Deceit, you'll learn about Barack Obama's plans to "change" our country and your life by...

  • Raising taxes from the low rate of 28% under Ronald Reagan to economy-destroying 60% rate under Herbert Hoover.
  • Handing out Federal medical insurance to more than 12 million aliens, and increasing emergency room costs by $15.4 billion annually.
  • Appointing ultra-liberal, anti-business Supreme Court judges who would reverse the ruling that bans partial birth abortion, and the ruling that confirms the Second Amendment is an individual right.
  • Would take 25% of farmland out of production to satisfy environmental lobbyists, causing increased food costs and worldwide food shortages.
  • Implementing a "zero to five" program designed to transfer infant and child raising responsibilities for children under five from parents to the federal government.
  • Establishing a government agency to approve what types of medical procedures and operations senior citizens are permitted to have.
  • Increasing the liberal majority in Congress by allowing felons to vote.
  • Waging a trade war that would eliminate 10 million American jobs and re-establish the tariff system implemented by Herbert Hoover.
As a state senator, Obama...
  • Supported withholding emergency medical aid for babies who survive an abortion.
Barack Obama may be desperately tacking towards the middle in order to attract voters, but as The Audacity of Deceit proves, his real beliefs are not those of the majority of Americans.

Format: Hardcover
I was pleasantly pleased to discover that despite the title, this book is not so much about Barack Obama, the person (though that is covered), but is largely about the policies advocated by Barack Obama and what implementing those policies might do to our country. Succinctly put, Obama believes that all our social ills can be solved by bigger government taxing producers more heavily to re-distribute money to those who do not produce. Although it is difficult to tell what Obama's position is as he changes them to fit the need, from his speeches and writing we can see that Obama is:

* Against the second amendment and the right to own firearms.
* For late term or any abortion
* For allowing felons to vote
* For raising taxes on income of any sort
* For giving away a trillion dollars in the Global Poverty Act
* For social spending increases from welfare to mortgage relief
* Against drilling, coal, or nuclear power and for high gas prices
* Against free trade
* For a liberal Supreme Court
* For government run health care
* For drastically reducing the military

These policies follow ultra-liberal trends in every respect. They are a return to Jimmy Carter and even to Herbert Hoover, whose policies in a similar situation greatly prolonged the effects of the Great Depression. As the author deals with all these issues he also presents facts that are uncommonly known about our country. Did you know, for example, that the US has 1.84 Trillion barrels of oil in proven reserves, including oil shale and coal, where the rest of the world combined has 951 billion? That's PROVEN reserves. We know they are there. Did you know the top ten percent of household pay 70% of the taxes and that 30% of households pay no taxes whatsoever?

I don't know what facts and sources the people who have rated this book with 1 star are looking at. You all are as biased as a die hard ultra right winger. This book does not simply use the internet for research like I am sure most of you people who poorly rated this book 1 star did. It uses real research (beyond just typing issues in on google which I am sure is hard for some of you to believe) to give an accurate assessment of what Obama would realistically implement while in office. Let me enlighten you.

There is a thing called "data mining" that is a very common practice in this world. It allows you to conjure up the facts from a presentation of data that you want to convey and conveniently leave out other facts that would be detrimental to your position and still technically be telling the "truth".

For example, this is exactly what Obama did claiming 95% of Americans would receive tax reductions, read about it and compare with some other real research along with this book. In order for Obama to give 95% of Americans tax reductions, the tax system would have to be altered in such a way that changes the bracket under which many Americans qualify and that is the underlying assumption; the conveniently left out fact that is easily overshadowed by the possibility of 95% of Americans receiving tax reductions that essentially everyone wasn't told. In reality what will happen is there will be no change in the tax brackets and 40% of Americans, mostly middle class, will receive a tax deduction while the middle-upper and upper class pick up this slack and 30% of households still pay nothing. This is FACT. There are other parts to this story but this is a very broad overview.

95 of 134 people found the following review helpful By Duncan Murray on September 15, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This may be the best book on Barack Obama that you haven't read.

Author Brad O'Leary carefully documents, using Obama's own words and votes, that, while creating a right for felons to vote, Barack will not protect the military's right to vote; why nearly half the population will pay no taxes yet consume a majority of government services paid for by the other half;how he wants to confiscate your money to fuel the $845 billion Global Poverty Act, and much, much more.

O'Leary makes cogent arguments for free trade and other common sense policies.

This book doesn't waste time with moonbat accusations, although it devotes a very few, well documented pages to Obama's Muslim connections. O'Leary wisely concentrates on policy issues.

"The Audacity of Deceipt" would be a smoother read with better editing. Sometimes there are paragraphs that interrupt the flow because they seem to come from nowhere. All in all, however, this is a book that is well worth the brief time it will take to read it.

I am so grateful for this book. I am an Independent voter and I had a lot of questions about Barack Obama. Reading this book answered a lot of my questions as to where the country would go if Barack were elected. I sense there is a great danger if there is a Democratic congress and a radical Democrat leftist like Barack in the White House. I strongly recommend this book to other Independents.

Format: Hardcover
Barack Obama's speaking skills have masked what it is precisely that's he's saying, not to mention his minimal accomplishments. "The Audacity of Deceit," more than the other books taking a look at this fatally flawed candidate, summarizes what is known to date about Obama, his policies, plans and associates - and it's not pretty for anyone who cares about this country.

From Bill Ayres and his equally contemptible father to the Annenberg Challenge, from abortion to foreign policy - author Brad O'Leary covers all the major aspects of Obama's life and beliefs in a style that makes for a fast read. There's nothing pedantic here, which makes "Audacity" an excellent choice for those wanting an unencumbered but well-researched look at Barack Obama. O'Leary's conclusion? Barack Obama is utterly unqualified by both experience and belief to lead this country and the world.
