From the Back Cover
The bestselling authors return with a blistering exposé of how America is being ripped off by friends and enemies alike—with the help of our own ruling elites.
Our jobs go to China. Foreign aid goes to our enemies. Pakistan uses our money to fund terrorists who attack us. Saudi Arabia, which our soldiers have defended with their lives, funds 90 percent of the world's Islamic fundamentalism. The UN is awash in corruption; its bureaucrats steal the money we give it with total impunity. Fifteen hundred brave American soldiers have died defending the regime in Afghanistan—rated the second-most corrupt in the world! Meanwhile, European bankers and bureaucrats are taking over our economy and preempting our sovereignty.
How do they get away with it? By hiring our own political leaders, as soon as they leave office, to lobby for them to rip us off. Former House Democratic leader Dick Gephardt, for example, sits on the board of an American affiliate of a Chinese company that has been denied the right to operate in the United States because it steals our technology. Former House Republican Appropriations Committee chairman Bob Livingstone represented Libya until just before Gaddafi fell. And we have a president who willingly obliges countries that poach on our sovereignty, refusing to stand up for our interests and our jobs as they confiscate half the royalties from our offshore energy, subject our elected leaders to criminal prosecution if they go to war without UN approval, and tell us what kind of land-use policies we should pursue.
In Screwed!, bestselling authors Dick Morris and Eileen McGann lay bare the unvarnished facts as never before and suggest real, immediate, and specific steps to stop those who undermine our interests and take away our jobs. In the same vein as their previous crusading books—Catastrophe, Fleeced, and Outrage—Morris and McGann have documented, in great depth and detail, exactly how the United States is getting screwed, and how to stop it. They dig up the facts, name names, point fingers, and suggest concrete solutions—independent of partisan politics.

Part one: A world without Democracy; America without sovereignty. Part two: Trick or Treaties: How the European Union is preempting congress and binding us through international treaties. Part three: goes into depth on how China is stealing our business and military technology and has the biggest spying operation in the world. Part four deals with the U.S. relationship with the corrupt Pakistan regime. Part five explains our dealings with Afghanistan and their corrupt government. Part six: covers our relationship and aid to Saudi Arabia. Part seven: This was one of my favorite sections because it dealt with the obvious corruption of the United Nations and our failure to address the problem. Part eight explains the world bank abuses. Part nine covers how ridiculous our foreign aid is as we give money to countries who hate us. Part ten details the Chavez-Ahmadinejad alliance. The final section is important because it lists how corrupt politicians in our country wind up as lobbyists for countries who just want to rip off the United States.
Anyone who is a true American should be concerned about the waste and corruption of our government when it comes to foreign aid and the United Nations. This is a book that provides detailed facts everyone needs to change the direction of our country when it comes to the foreign aid and the United Nations. We can only hope it is not too late to change the present socialist direction our country is racing toward today. The unfortunate fact is, the more socialist our country becomes the more corrupt it will also become.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Never Trust a Politician: A critical review of politics and politicians).
It is a critique of the wasteful practices of the UN and corruption within that organisation and revealing its anti-American policies.It spells out the amount of Dollars that the USA gives to its enemies for very little return in neither gratitude nor trade.Every American should read this.
Good book full of information all Americans should know.
