The New Leviathan: How the Left-Wing Money-Machine Shapes American Politics and Threatens America's Future

D9e6986106ac83fddf1d01b6bff792da

Horowitz and Laskin have penned a sharply worded, deeply informed expose of the powerful, very wealthy network of liberal foundations that's spending hundreds of millions to reshape America's politics, culture and economic structure. The authors shart the liberal foundation executives and the money they’re using to drive the country leftward. The irony is that the money often comes from foundations founded by conservatives. Read this and be afraid.

Kim Strassel writes a heck of a great column – “Potomac Watch” – every Friday in the Wall Street Journal on whose editorial board she sits. Now this master of the short essay has written her first book and it’s a dandy. THE INTIMIDATION GAME is a brilliant exposé of how the Left is using the vast regulatory and prosecutorial powers of government to attack the First Amendment free speech rights of conservatives in order to silence and marginalize them. Rather than achieving political power at the ballot box, the Left is trying to forever silence the Right by intimidation, regulation, and if need be, jail.

A former Bush White House colleague, Yuval Levin, has written an important book for conservatives. His provocative thesis is that conservatives and liberals alike are wedded to a philosophical nostalgia that is debilitating for their respective movements and for the country.
