Format: Hardcover
Wikipedia defines "Leviathan" as a sea monster referred to in the Bible. In Demonology, the Leviathan is one of the seven princes of Hell and its gatekeeper."
In this new book of insights, "The `New Leviathan' is a network of billion-dollar tax-exempt foundations and advocacy think tanks that work in concert with government unions and grassroots radical groups to make up the organizational core of the political left. The new Leviathan is not only a political force in the narrow sense of directly influencing electoral outcomes through the support of candidates and parties..."
This many legged or tentacled Monster Octopus is completely invisible to most voters because it works under the camouflaged umbrella of tax-free entitles with charters claiming a goal of improving the public good. They mostly operate as a major force in pushing progressive liberal agendas.
One of the most important points detailed in this short book is the "Myth of the Democrats as the 99% and the Republicans as the 1%." It's a continuation of the falsehood that the "Republicans are the `party of the rich,' while progressives speak for the powerless and the poor." That book proves that this folk lore is exactly the opposite of reality. "Of the twelve richest lawmakers, Democrats outnumber Republicans three to one." A New York Times article by Christopher Caldwell, "The Democratic Party is the party to which elites belong. It is the party of Harvard (and most of the Ivy League), of Microsoft and Apple (and most of Silicon Valley), of Hollywood and Manhattan (and most of the media)...of Goldman Sachs (and most of the investment banking profession)...The Democrats have the support of more, and more active, billionaires. Of the twenty richest ZIP codes in America, ...

Format: Hardcover
"The New Leviathan" is the community of progressive foundations that have an unacknowledged influence on American politics. Horowitz and Laksin provide histories of various major foundations, Ford, MacArthur, etc., focusing on their funding of political action groups. These foundations spend huge amounts of money, they have supported some groups for long periods of time when the group would otherwise have collapsed, and they are unaccountable. Foundations are also vulnerable to the policy views of people who are trained to run foundations, either academically, or through experience at other foundations.

I found this book quite interesting, he goes into great detail about each radicals' life in a very personal and intimate way. David Horowitz style of writing is kind of complicated. He uses very uncommon words for the average reader. I found myself checking the dictionary more than I wanted to, but aside from that he does an extraordinary job showing the reader the depth to which the radical is committed. The radical embraces his leftism as his religion, and the book gives you tremendous insight into this world. I was astonished at the amount of money the left has compared to the right. The Foundations on the left out weigh the right by probably 75%. It is all documented, so you will be shocked when you see it in black and white. An amazing book.

Format: Hardcover
This book is from a reformed leftist author who has been in the belly of the beast and learned to understand the roots of the evil that is consuming Freedom in America.

Obama's myriad scandals and flaws -- from his "Soft Tyranny," dubious elegibility, building a dictatorship inside our Republic, to cover-ups like Fast and Furious, to his Soros and terrorist connections, to his woefully dismal performance on jobs, energy, the economy, and national security -- are but the tip of this Facist agenda.


I'm buying this book and will post a full review when I finish it.


1. I have seen the author present a summary of this book with the citations and some of the tables and charts.

2. Part of this pattern was revealed several years ago. An incredible $79 Billion of the taxpayers' money (about the cost of the Iraq War up though when Saddam was captured) was invested in Global Warming Alarmism through July 2009. (Source: Climate Money, SPPI.)

3. The author is a well-known liberal who saw this from the inside.

4. This book is threatening enough to the Obama agenda that the Trolls (Occupy Amazon?) are starting to gather and mount Saul Alinsky style personal attacks on reviewers in an attempt to prevent people from reading this book. This attempt at censorship is an excellent indication of important substance in what is being reported in this book.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By a serious reader in on August 31, 2012
Format: Hardcover
This outstanding book is a must read for any conservative wanting to know how far-out leftist organizations have virtually unlimited tax free funds to use in their quest to bring about destruction of US Constitutional liberties, and free market capitalism. Once this is achieved, the country will be a leftist dictatorship with lifetime rulers of the likes of Obama and Castro.

This daily effort is much worse and more damaging than ever thought possible by communists in their covert attempts to overthrow the US goverment in the 1933-52 time frame. In a matter of a few years hence, leftist organizations will soon totally control the federal government, and even the US Supreme Court's delicate 5-4 split decisions will be replaced by 6-3 majorities that will destroy every protection of liberty the American people hold dear.

The only objection I had to this very well written book is that didn't recommend the obvious need to have a Republican President and Republican control of both the House and Senate to either end the tax free foundations outright, or provide for a five year period of liquidation of all the assets that aren't used for traditional charity such as healthcare. Buy a few extra copies of this excellent book and give them to your conservative friends to make them aware of the peril that is so close to having complete control of our government and courts.
