Editorial Reviews

Review

“The reader will find nuggets of information [in The Blueprint] that are in fact ‘sensational.’ . . .  Mr. Klukowski and Mr. Blackwell see an administration pushing for international regulation of economic activity and the breakdown of state sovereignty. . . . If Mr. Obama is re-elected, this book predicts ‘we will not only have the most liberal [Supreme] Court, but it will be the most liberal in history. And we will have this liberal Court for at least a quarter-century.’ If that alone doesn’t galvanize the right, it’s difficult to fathom what will.”
Washington Times

“With their characteristic style, Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski offer compelling arguments and insights demonstrating that much of President Obama’s agenda undermines our Constitution and America’s system of limited government that keeps us free. An important and timely book.”

—Edwin Meese III, Former Attorney General of the United States and Counselor to President Ronald Reagan

 

“Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski do an outstanding job showing how much of President Obama’s agenda, which is undermining America’s families, also violates our constitutional rights. This is a must read!”

—Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council
 
The Blueprint proves beyond a doubt that much of Barack Obama’s power grab is more than just terrible for our economy; it’s unconstitutional. Share this book with your friends.”

—Steve Forbes, Chairman and CEO of Forbes Media, and former presidential candidate

Format: Hardcover
I used to pay no attention to politics. Then I bought a business, and I began to realize how much the government gets in the way of everything. You cannot run your business the way you want to, the government has gotten so "involved" that it actually hinders your progress in almost every way possible, adding fee's for this and that so they can create a new government "job".. Really just someone to mover the papers up and down the chain. The authors of this book realize this, and make a case for small government. The constitution gives the government no right to coerce its citizens to buy health insurance, nor to coerce business's to purchase it for its employee's!

I am not sure if most of the liberals rating this book a 1 star have ever even read the constitution. The federal government is getting way too powerful, and its starting to scare me! Liberals, get this into your heads... THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU!!! It will not take care of you, when you need someone the most they will abandon you, or force you to wait in an endless like for another form that in the end will get you nowhere, except maybe more dependent upon the government.

This book clearly shows how Obama is a nice, well meaning person, but a man with an agenda. An agenda to GROW the federal goverment. Who wants more government? What have they every really done for you? If your a cronic welfare abuser- you may be completely numb to the value of hard work and sacrifice, perhaps your drug has become the Federal government... when you wake up from your apathetic coma realize they are doing nothing but holding you down!

Great work Ken and Ken! Cant wait for the next book!

The authors make a strong argument for those who are seeking information about the incredible, subversive activities in which our government is involved. For those who study the constitution, it's a nice addition to the library, and is well-researched and formatted. As a professional journalist for the past 30 years, I find the book to be exceptionally well-written.

I thought this was a very well written and researched book that painted a clear and understandable picture of the president's malevolence toward the Constitution. I really appreciated the appendix that broke down each issue and forecasted its future prospects. Definitely a good resource to reference as the president continues to systematically rewrite and/or destroy the Constitution.

Also, I have READ the book. The trolls who have not read this book, but tamper ratings simply because a book does not reflect their political ideology, need to get a life. You're probably the same people who called the "Obama Police" when the Whitehouse requested that anyone who spreads "misinformation" be reported and recorded. The sad thing is your collective drivel to discredit this book, if anything, only lends credibility to one of the arguments made in the book. READ the book. You'll know what I'm talking about.

Though I did not agree with all the many, conservative viewpoints of the book, such as regarding federal funding for birth control or more climate change studies/controls, their treatment of Obama's first four years in office, I thought was excellent and factual. The amazing thing, assuming they have all their facts 100% correct, is that very few Americans realize to this date, just before the election date, just what BO has been up to throughout his entire time in governmental offices, including the US Senate. His preparation for the Presidency was virtually non-existent, and having spent only 2 years in the US Senate, hardly prepared him for how to negotiate bipartisanship, international foreign policy, handling the budget and controlling deficit spending, the correct role of the White House vis-a-vis the Courts and Congress, and 101 other details that might have made a more successful, first (and, hopefully, last) term in office. The authors did an admirable and responsible job of summarizing just what BO did right and, especially, what he did wrong in his first term. It was an easy, though often, upsetting read, well documented and cited throughout. I have read several other books on the BO Presidency, such as D'Souza's (The Unmaking of America) which supported this one by Blackwell and Klukowski.

Obama's fans like to praise him for his intellect and for being a constitutional scholar. After reading this book you will be faced with a question about Obama and the constitution and there are only two possible answers. Either Obama has no clue what is written in the constitution and what its intent was, or Obama understands it and has chosen to subvert it even though he took an oath to protect and defend the constitution. You can be the judge.

The book is an easy read and filled with information that you will never see covered in the mainstream media. For any on the far left that plan on buying this book, I can only encourage you to read it with an open mind.

This book is extremely well written by the authors. Thankfully, they not only share what is happening at the National level, but ways to stop things that are being put into play, from actually happening. It gave me hope that things can be changed, but also opened my eyes to the motives behind the decisions and actions that are being taken to change our country into something we won't recognize or like.

I highly recommend that you add this to your reading list. Be informed and aware. There is time to get involved and change things.
