1. Live Not by Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents
Author: by Rod Dreher
Published at: Sentinel (September 29, 2020)
The New York Times bestselling author of The Benedict Option draws on the wisdom of Christian survivors of Soviet persecution to warn American Christians of approaching dangers. For years, migrs from the former Soviet bloc have been telling Rod Dreher they see telltale signs of “soft” totalitarianism cropping up in America-something more Brave New World than Nineteen Eighty-Four.
Identity politics are beginning to encroach on every aspect of life. Civil liberties are increasingly seen as a threat to “safety”. Progressives marginalize conservative, traditional Christians, and other dissenters. Technology and consumerism hasten the possibility of a corporate surveillance state.
And the pandemic, having put millions out of work, leaves our country especially vulnerable to demagogic manipulation. In Live Not By Lies, Dreher amplifies the alarm sounded by the brave men and women who fought totalitarianism. He explains how the totalitarianism facing us today is based less on overt violence and more on psychological manipulation.
2. Blackout: How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape from the Democrat Plantation
Author: by Candace Owens
Published at: Threshold Editions (September 15, 2020)
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER It’s time for a black exit. Political activist and social media star Candace Owens addresses the many ways that Democrat Party policies hurt, rather than help, the African American community, and why she and many others are turning right.
Black Americans have long been shackled to the Democrats. Seeing no viable alternative, they have watched liberal politicians take the black vote for granted without pledging anything in return. In Blackout, Owens argues that this automatic allegiance is both illogical and unearned.
She contends that the Democrat Party has a long history of racism and exposes the ideals that hinder the black community’s ability to rise above poverty, live independent and successful lives, and be an active part of the American Dream.
Instead, Owens offers up a different ideology by issuing a challenge: It’s time for a major black exodus. From dependency, from victimhood, from miseducationand the Democrat Party, which perpetuates all three. Owens explains that government assistance is a double-edged sword, that the Left dismisses the faith so important to the black community, that Democrat permissiveness toward abortion disproportionately affects black babies, that the #MeToo movement hurts black men, and much more.

5. Socialists Don't Sleep: Christians Must Rise or America Will Fall
Author: by Cheryl K. Chumley
Published at: Humanix Books (September 22, 2020)
Socialists Don’t Sleep is about all the sneaky ways the secular left has pressed Socialism into American politics and life AND WHY CHRISTIANS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN STOP IT! “Socialists Don’t Sleep is one of those timely books that just points out the roots of what’s gone wrong in America, how we can get our country back on track to what founders envisioned and the Judeo-Christian community that holds the key to America’s long-term successes.” Gov.
Mike Huckabee, New York Times Bestselling author & Host of Huckabee Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when it comes to socialism in America, these two aren’t the problem.Per se. They’re simply symptoms of the real problems that usher in Socialism: a dysfunctional entitlement-minded society, a propaganda-pushing school system, a decayed culture, a sieve-like border.
As Cheryl Chumley points out in Socialists Don’t Sleep, we can’t root out socialism unless we first address the real problems. Michael Savage, New York Times Bestselling author & host of The Savage Nation Socialists Don’t Sleep: Christians Must Rise or America Will Fall tells how America has gone from a country of rights coming from God NOT government to a country that embraces Socialism where the US government is now expected to pretty much provide from cradle to the grave.Cheryl K.
6. Discrimination and Disparities
Author: by Thomas Sowell
Published at: Basic Books; Enlarged edition (March 5, 2019)
An enlarged edition of Thomas Sowell’s brilliant examination of the origins of economic disparitiesEconomic and other outcomes differ vastly among individuals, groups, and nations. Many explanations have been offered for the differences. Some believe that those with less fortunate outcomes are victims of genetics.
Others believe that those who are less fortunate are victims of the more fortunate. Discrimination and Disparities gathers a wide array of empirical evidence to challenge the idea that different economic outcomes can be explained by any one factor, be it discrimination, exploitation, or genetics.
This revised and enlarged edition also analyzes the human consequences of the prevailing social vision of these disparities and the policies based on that vision-from educational disasters to widespread crime and violence.
7. DARK AGENDA: The War to Destroy Christian America
Author: by David Horowitz
Published at: Humanix Books (March 5, 2019)
“Read this disturbing but vital book.” Tucker Carlson One of the most intellectually compelling and rational defenses of Christianity’s role in America.” Gov Mike Huckabee “Exposes the intolerance of many atheists toward those who believe in God. As a Jewish agnostic, I think it is imperative that disbelievers not demonize believers and that believers not demonize disbelievers.” Alan Dershowitz DARK AGENDA is an extraordinary look into the left’s calculated efforts to create a godless, heathen American society and how these efforts must be stopped.
And it is written by David Horowitz, a Jew. A New York Times bestselling author and leading conservative thinker, Horowitz warns that the rising attacks on Christians and their beliefs threaten all Americans including Jews like himself. The liberal establishment and their radical allies envision a new millennium in which Christianity is banished, Horowitz argues.
He says that Judeo-Christian values are at the very root of America’s democracy. Kill off such values and all of our freedoms could perish. In Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America, Horowitz examines how our elites increasingly secular and atheist are pushing a radical agenda: How the left trashes Christian doctrines critical to the American Republic, much like radical Islam’s war on infidel cultures like ours.
8. The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy
Author: by Thomas Sowell
Published at: Basic Books (June 28, 1996)
Thomas Sowell’s provocative critique of liberalism’s failures The Vision of the Anointed is a devastating critique of the mind-set behind the failed social policies of the past thirty years. Thomas Sowell sees what has happened not as a series of isolated mistakes but as a logical consequence of a vision whose defects have led to disasters in education, crime, family disintegration, and other social pathology.
In this book, “politically correct” theory is repeatedly confronted with facts – and sharp contradictions between the two are explained in terms of a whole set of self-congratulatory assumptions held by political and intellectual elites. These elites – the anointed – often consider themselves “thinking people,” but much of what they call thinking turns out, on examination, to be rhetorical assertion, followed by evasions of mounting evidence against those assertions.

Every major decision governing our diverse, majority-female, and increasingly liberal country bears the stamp of the United States Senate, an institution controlled by people who are almost exclusively white, overwhelmingly male, and disproportionately conservative. Although they do not represent a majority of Americansand will not for the foreseeable futuretoday’s Republican senators possess the power to block most legislation.
Once known as the world’s greatest deliberative body, the Senate has become one of the greatest threats to our democracy. How did this happen? In Kill Switch, Senate insider Adam Jentleson contends that far from reflecting the Framers’ vision, the Senate has been transformed over the decades by a tenacious minority of white conservatives.

12. Black Rednecks and White Liberals
Author: by Thomas Sowell
Published at: Encounter Books (April 24, 2006)
This explosive new book challenges many of the long-prevailing assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on not only the trendy intellectuals of our times but also such historic interpreters of American life as Alexis de Tocqueville and Frederick Law Olmsted.
In a series of long essays, this book presents an in-depth look at key beliefs behind many mistaken and dangerous actions, policies, and trends. It presents eye-opening insights into the historical development of the ghetto culture that is today wrongly seen as a unique black identity-a culture cheered on toward self-destruction by white liberals who consider themselves “friends” of blacks.
An essay titled “The Real History of Slavery” presents a jolting re-examination of that tragic institution and the narrow and distorted way it is too often seen today. The reasons for the venomous hatred of Jews, and of other groups like them in countries around the world, are explored in an essay that asks, “Are Jews Generic?” Misconceptions of German history in general, and of the Nazi era in particular, are also re-examined.
13. How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps
Author: by Ben Shapiro
Published at: Broadside Books (July 21, 2020)
A growing number of Americans want to tear down what it’s taken us 250 years to buildand they’ll start by canceling our shared history, ideals, and culture. Traditional areas of civic agreement are vanishing. We can’t agree on what makes America special.
We can’t even agree that America is special. We’re coming to the point that we can’t even agree what the word America itself means. Disintegrationists say we’re stronger together, but their assault on America’s history, philosophy, and culture will only tear us apart.
Who are the disintegrationists? From Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States to the New York Times’ 1619 project, many modern analyses view American history through the lens of competing oppressions, a racist and corrupt experiment from the very beginning.
They see American philosophy as a lie beautiful words pasted over a thoroughly rotted system. They see America’s culture of rights as a faade that merely reinforces traditional hierarchies of power, instead of being the only culture that guarantees freedom for individuals.
14. A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles
Author: by Thomas Sowell
Published at: Basic Books; Revised edition (June 5, 2007)
Controversies in politics arise from many sources, but the conflicts that endure for generations or centuries show a remarkably consistent pattern. In this classic work, Thomas Sowell analyzes this pattern. He describes the two competing visions that shape our debates about the nature of reason, justice, equality, and power: the “constrained” vision, which sees human nature as unchanging and selfish, and the “unconstrained” vision, in which human nature is malleable and perfectible.
A Conflict of Visions offers a convincing case that ethical and policy disputes circle around the disparity between both outlooks.
