“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
From the Inside Flap
Hailed by Glenn Beck as a "watchdog" and by Rush Limbaugh as a "go-to guy," bestselling author and attorney Christopher C. Horner is a leader in the fight against liberal tyranny in America with his requests for information even declared "criminal" by the Obama administration. Revealing explosive new information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and well-placed sources, Horner exposes the tightly kept secret of liberals running our government and schools: a carefully managed war to undermine the taxpayers' right to see what their government is up to.
WHAT IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HIDING?
During his campaign, Barack Obama promised "the most transparent administration in history." Not only has this proven to be an empty promise, but he and his liberal allies systematically hide their activities from the public. They use private email accounts and computers, avoid creating records, stonewall information requests, and otherwise delay or deny access to information every taxpayer has a right to know. This eye-opening book exposes the White House tricks, tactics, and "tradecraft" now regularly used to keep Americans in the dark. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
