Review

Praise for Power Grab
Power Grab exposes the agenda of the Obama administration and its allies, from ‘green jobs’ to the cap-and-trade energy tax as ways to cram down the Left’s long-held wish list of demands, and dream of ‘organizing society.’ Horner reveals what their rhetoric means, how the schemes work and what it all spells for you if they win. Power Grab lays bare the plan to replace your individual liberties with the state, securing the Left’s dream of making decisions for you and your family: what you can drive, how you can live, and what sorts of jobs and future they deem acceptable for Americans.”
—Mark Levin, bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host

“Chris Horner raises the red flag about the so-called ‘green economy.’ Power Grab shows the dark gray economic fallacies that lie behind the bright ‘green’ economic fairy tales, in a way everyone can understand, if while laughing between the tears.”
—Dr. Gabriel Calzada, professor of applied environmental economics at King Juan Carlos University

Power Grab exposes the incestuous relationships between the Obama administration and the piles of taxpayer money it wants to pipeline to the Big Green juggernaut consisting of Big Business and Big Labor. Horner shows that the green agenda isn’t so much about a clean environment as it is about redistributing income from us to them.”
—Stephen Moore, member of The Wall Street Journal editorial board and senior economics writer

“Chris Horner was right in his bestselling The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Global Warming and Environmentalism. He was right in his book Red Hot Lies that exposed the cover-ups, lies, and intimidation of the global-warming alarmists. And he’s right again in his new book Power Grab, which exposes what the extremists are really after: power over you, your wallet, and even your right to self-government. Power Grab is essential reading for fighting back.”
—Congresswoman Michele Bachmann

Format: Hardcover
While George Bush was accused of being secretive, Obama is much worse. And what makes it even sadder is how loud he brags about his transparency. It's enough to make you gag. "The Liberal War on Transparency" gives you an insider's prospective on the sordid mess. It details the author's experience with using The Freedom of Information Act in obtaining information from organizations involved with global warming. the author also has a chapter detailing how to use The Freedom of Information Act. Interesting book.

The Liberal War on Transparency: Confessions of a FOIA Criminal is an amazing piece of work. Learning how our government tries to keep its citizens in the dark about how it operates is frightening. Thank goodness we have people like Mr. Horner to keep us apprised of some of what is going on in D.C.. All four of his books have been very revealing and express his vast knowledge of what really is happening. His great sense of humor makes his books apleasure to read.

If you are a news junkie and get your information from places other than the mainstream media, much of the content of this book won't be new to you. For all others, it would probably be worth your time to read Horner's book which is based on his extensive Freedom Of Information Act requests. Some of the revelations might shock or maybe surprise you. In all fairness, this same investigative zeal needs to be applied to the Republicans as well.

Format: Hardcover
Written by an expert on the Freedom of Information act, this book offers an interesting perspective on how this law is ignored or circumvented by Washington. How it has become politicized with obstacles, fees, and delays until the spin can be prepared and sold through friendly media.

Kind of a shock really to both right and left supporters. Both parties offer concerns over this new version of transparency. Some of the moves are unlawful or maybe gray by people who are sworn to uphold the Constitution.

The book even shows you how to file your own Freedom of Information Act request. Lots of notes to support the chapters.

If you have been concerned about what is going on in Washington on both sides of the aisle, this book should be on your list.
