  • The corruption of the media, Big Tech, and Rep. Nunes’ theory of the “disinformation funnel”
  • The costs of the Russiagate hoax to American national security
  • Rep. Nunes’ chilling observations regarding the coronavirus shutdowns
  • The truth about Democrat vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris’ political ascent
  • The criticality of the 2020 election

Announcing the Release of My New Book ‘American Ingrate: Ilhan Omar and the Progressive-Islamist Takeover of the Democratic Party’

Today I am pleased to announce the release of my new book, American Ingrate: Ilhan Omar and the Progressive-Islamist Takeover of the Democratic Party.

American Ingrate is as serious and substantive as it is provocative and politically potent.

Beyond the fact one of its core arguments is being borne out in real time with the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders — who just named Rep. Omar his campaign co-chair in the all-important 2020 state of Minnesota — and its relevance as the story regarding her alleged marriage fraud and related crimes might finally be reaching a crescendo, this book:

  • Makes the definitive case that as President Trump has argued, Rep. Omar is the face of the Democratic Party, while delving deeply into her unexplored background, unchallenged beliefs, and under-appreciated effort in leading her party to advance a fundamentally subversive, intersectional- and identity politics-based agenda geared towards destroying our core institutions under the guise of “social justice;” 
  • Sets forth the argument that she not only personifies but leads the unholy progressive-Islamist alliance–held together by the glue of Jew-hatred as a proxy for hatred of Judeo-Christian Western civilization–that truly has triumphed over the Democratic establishment; and
  • Builds the as yet ignored case for her collusion with corrupt and anti-American actors and regimes foreign and domestic–on top of credible allegations of criminality and corruption, including previously unreported details pointing to her fraudulence

If you are intrigued by this book, please consider (i) purchasing several copies, (ii) rating and reviewing it on Amazon, and (iii) sharing on social media.

My Guest

Jonathan Neumann has written perhaps the seminal book on how modern Jewry has supplanted its traditional values and principles with Leftism, based on a perverse, sophistic reading of the concept of tikkun olam, “healing the world,” that demands devotion to social justice as the highest good and organizing principle of the Jewish religion.

By way of background, Neumann is a graduate of Cambridge University and the London School of Economics. He has written for various American, British, and Israeli publications, was the Tikvah Fellow at Commentary magazine, and has served as assistant editor at Jewish Ideas Daily.
