The history of the Power Elite goes back almost a thousand years. A useful starting point, though, for the historical outline of the modern Power Elite would be about 350 years ago with their political and economic activities, and their alteration of nations values to accept the Power Elite s control. A critical moment in their plan for global dominance occurred with the founding of the Illuminati in 1776. Not only did the Illuminati advocate the overthrow of monarchical authority, but religious authority as well. Dr. Cuddy covers the methods they have used to bring this about, including psych...

Liberty should be the great aim of government. So thought Thomas Jefferson.

To be sure, America remains the beacon of freedom for a liberty-less world but, as Derrick G.

America as we know it—wealthy, powerful, assertive—is not what Obama wants. He wants a smaller America, a poorer America, an America unable to exert its will, an America happy to be one power among many, an America in decline so that other nations might rise—all in the name of global fairness. To Obama, the hated “one percent” isn’t just wealthy Americas; it is America itself. In Obama’s view, America needs to be taken down a notch. That is the startling conclusion of bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza in Obama’s America. Building on his previous New York Times bestseller T... View more info

Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege? Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world? Dinesh D'Souza says these questions are no mere academic exercise. It is the Progressive view that is taught in our schools, that is preached by Hollywood, and that shapes the policies of the Obama administration.
