Synopsis: Are you a frustrated conservative shocked by the bunch of far Left fanatics driving the bus—and our future—off a cliff? It’s time to fight back with the same ruthlessness that has served the radicals so well—not just now, but for the long term. And who better to reveal their strategies—and their fatal weaknesses—than one of their own? Playing on his all-too-typical hubris and good old greed, we’ve recruited well-known liberal apparatchik David Kahane to lead conservatives out of the political wilderness, whether he means to or not. Is he arrogant and obnoxious? Absolutely. Does he deliver the goods? You betcha. We’ll let Dave speak for himself:
 
Please allow me to introduce myself. . . . My name is David and I’m going to share some secrets. I’m going to take you into the smoke-free back rooms of today’s progressive political machine to reveal how it really operates—and how you can bring it down. I’ll lay out the rules we radicals have used to run circles around you, and clue you in on how to make them work for you, too.

How do I know this stuff? As the son of the sainted “Che” Kahane, I’ve been schooled in the art of seizing and holding political power as we transform America one antiquated tradition and constitutional clause at a time. Now I work in Hollywood, where I’ve perfected the game pioneered by such pros as Machiavelli, Saul Alinsky, and Al Capone, father of the immortal Chicago Way. Read on and learn from our time-tested techniques:
 
· Know your enemy, his intentions, his weapons, and his weaknesses. You too can play relentless, on-message hardball with every scandal, hypocrisy, lie, and fundamentally flawed policy your adversaries dish up.
· Become what you behold. Adopt some of our scorched-earth tactics, best described in David Mamet’s Untouchables: “They pull a knife, you pull a gun.
· Take no prisoners. Attack our premises, expose their true nature and consequences, and pin them on us, hard.
· Never cede anything to the other side, philosophically speaking. Force the Left to argue facts, not emotions. We hate that.
· Treat us with the same respect we give you. None.
· It is better to be feared than liked, especially by your enemies. And it helps to show up for the fight. (Note to past and future Republican candidates.)
 
Why am I telling you all this? Because I thrive on making trouble and, frankly, because I’m proud of what my team has done. Between us, I don’t think it matters if I turn over our playbook to you at this late date. I don’t think you can get it together to stop us now. Plus, I got a lot of money.

Happy reading, America! You think you can take us down? Go for it. I dare you.

Review: Brad Thor Reviews Rules for Radical Conservatives

Brad Thor is the #1 New York Times bestselling author whose titles include The Lions of Lucerne, Path of the Assassin, State of the Union, Blowback (recognized as one of the Top 100 Thrillers of All Time by NPR), and The Last Patriot (nominated best thriller of the year by the International Thriller Writers Association and banned in Saudi Arabia). Read his review of Rules for Radical Conservatives:

Normally when someone whispers, “Psssst, hey buddy,” at me (especially when I’m in Hollywood), I keep on walking. But for someone reason when David Kahane did it, I stopped and I listened. And boy, did I get a politically insightful earful.

Kahane is the pseudonymous persona of a highly-connected, extremely funny, and incredibly bright Hollywood liberal who has turned to eating his own. Reading Kahane is like sitting next to Sean Connery in that scene from The Untouchables when he tells Elliot Ness that the only way he’ll ever beat Capone is to beat him at his own game, to beat him the Chicago way, and that’s what Rules for Radical Conservatives is all about-–beating the leftists at their own game.

Don’t ask me why Kahane, the Arthur Frommer of the left, turned against his once beloved Progressive movement, just be glad that he has. Throughout this brilliant book, we get a poignant (and hysterical) peek behind the leftist curtain and learn what motivates them, how they operate, how they have co-opted media, education, government, and more. Best of all, Kahane offers us an ingenious, point-by-point roadmap for taking our country back.

If you haven’t read Kahane before, you’re in for a treat. If you haven’t even heard of Kahane before, you’re in for an even bigger treat as Rules for Radical Conservatives is the perfect place to delve into his wide and witty body of work. And while the left may refer to him as their Benedict Arnold, I see him as our own Benjamin Franklin-–a man of incalculable intellect who can’t help but dispense his wisdom with an extraordinary sense of humor.

Make no mistake, Kahane is no leftist plant. He’s the real deal and he’s here to help save America. Never has there been a funnier book that so succinctly spells out the left’s game and how to beat them at it. Only when you stop laughing will you realize how much you have learned and how much better prepared you are to take the fight to those who would destroy America and everything we hold dear.

In short-–I laughed, I cried, I bought copies to give to all my friends. Rules for Radical Conservatives gets two red-white-and-blue thumbs all the way up!
