Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An excellent chronicling of the various forms of socialism in America over the past 30-ish years, and documents the President's relationships to a number of related organizations. The book starts with the the President's attendance of the Socialist Scholars Conference, but this seems the weakest of the organizational relationships exposed by the book. We're simply left wondering who the President met and spoke with, events that can't be documented. The ACORN expose is much stronger (followed by the Midwest Academy) as it unequivocally links the President to people and ideas that virtually no one is aware of, save the readers of this book and the President himself. If Mr. Kurtz can find and report the documentation, why can't/won't David Gregory or any other newsreader?

The information presented in the book is direct, specific, and (generally) non-punishing and represents a body of information that any voter should consider and decide. A better narrative, leading with the strongest bodies of evidence and using the weaker in support, would make this more accessible to more readers. As an aside, it is one of the more extensively footnoted books I've read outside of a few physics texts.

This book is extremely well documented with factual research that exposes what should be every American's worst fear - that our POTUS is a radical socialist to the core. The fact that Obama repeatedly lied about his past radical associations is disturbing in the extreme. Obama's goal really is to transform America from it's capitalist roots to pure socialism as fast as he possibly can. It's clear from this book's evidence that he will not moderate ala Bill Clinton, but he will use even more subversive tactics to achieve his end game. This book is scary but MUST reading for thinking Americans.

I've rented this book from my local library. I'm speechless. This book not only digs into Obama's Socialist life, but others involved. Thank you, Mr. Kurtz for your detective skills displayed in this book. In the near future, I'm going to purchase a copy of this book as a reference guide. They've done injustice to you by barring you from sharing this evidence on the radio.

There's a whopping 73 (Yup, 7 3) pages of resources used to write this book. Get this book before the 2012 elections so you'll understand why it's critical defeat Obama's agenda. It's important to know that it's Obama's socialist philosophies are THE ENEMY!! It's a tough book to read.

Knowing the enemy is tougher than ignoring it, that's why I'm recommending this book!!

I wish I could give it ten stars.

I am a conservative Republican and I don't typically find much of interest in the views and lives of our recent Presidents. I've long believed, though, that this President (Obama) is different, that he is an ideologue of the Left, and so I've read about a half dozen of the books that were written both during the 2008 election and after he was inaugurated. If you read one book about President Obama to learn who this man is, though, THIS is the book. Thoroughly researched the Obama he brings forward emerges from the smoke and mirrors he has placed around himself and is shown to be a deeply committed socialist. I've bought and given away some copies for others to read, the information is so vitally important for voters to know and understand this man. I just wish it had been written before 2008.

Stanley Kurtz is a careful, methodical investigator. In Chicago, while he was examining sources for this book, Obama's supporters tried to block his access to what should have been public records. This is not unusual for information pertaining to Obama. Ask yourself why Obama has not released his college records, medical histories or much else about his past. The mainstream media has been complicit in this concealment by simply not reporting it or seeming to care about Obama's past. It still amazes me how fast the mainstream media was to assign hundreds of reporters to digging up dirt on Sarah Palin as opposed to backgrounding Obama.

My advice is to approach Kurtz's book for what it is: the summary of an investigation into the personal history of a man who convinced a majority of voters to vote for him - once on a national scale.

While there are millions of voters who would have voted for anyone the Dem party put up, there are many millions who, if they had the information Kurtz developed, would have thought twice about casting their vote for this man.

I am not going to recite the contents of the book here. Much of it is already well known to readers of The Wall St. Journal, National Review and other conservative media, including blogs. Suffice it to say that every reference is sourced - any skeptic is free to consult the source materials, though it should be kept in mind how vigorously the attempts were to keep Kurtz away from this material.

Kurtz draws surprisingly few conclusions about Obama himself, but does of necessity, reach conclusions about some of the organizations Obama was involved with, such as the New Party, a shadowy organization that Obama has claimed at various times never existed. Likewise, the relationship between Obama and Rev.
