Trump's War

Michael Savage
Authors:
Michael Savage

In the #1 New York Times bestseller TRUMP'S WAR, the "Godfather of Trumpmania," Michael Savage, examines the initial appointments, speeches, tweets and history of President Donald Trump and offers his insights and analysis.The man many consider to be the determining factor in driving Trump over the finish line by motivating millions of undecideds and the "Deplorables," who would have otherwise sat out the election, provides a crucial first look at the early direction of the Trump presidency.Savage has waged a twenty-five year war on the radio to save America's borders, language and culture from a progressive onslaught that is already turning Europe into a socialist, multiculturalist nightmare, where violent gangs of radical Islamic refugees terrorize defenseless citizens on a daily basis.While most in the chattering classes around the world dismissed Trump's campaign, conservative radio icon Dr. Michael Savage championed Trump's platform and helped him galvanize the support of disaffected middle Americans left behind by the globalist central planners in their distant capitol.Savage's army of listeners on The Savage Nationwas instrumental in electing Donald Trump to take the fight to Washington. But electoral victory was only the beginning. Trump now has an even bigger challenge in delivering on the promises he made to millions of American voters.

Industrial Disasters and Environmental Policy

Denise L. Scheberle
Authors:
Denise L. Scheberle

Environmental stories have all the elements that make for a good tale - villains that plunge us into drama and danger, and heroes that speak up for the victims and fight for positive change. Case Studies in Environmental Law and Policy illuminates the interplay between environmental laws and policies and the people and groups who influence their development and implementation. Through the stories of four major industrial disasters - the Union Carbide chemical plant explosion, the BP oil spill, the Upper Big Branch Mine explosion, and the long-term asbestos poisoning in Libby, Montana - this book examines how organizational breakdowns and lapses in environmental protections caused these disasters, and how attitudes and laws changed (or not) as a result. It also explores the more uplifting tales of environmental heroes like Gaylord Nelson and Julia Bonds and how their activism has shaped and influenced US environmental politics and policies.Case Studies in Environmental Law and Policy concludes with a discussion of how the "rest of us" can participate in everyday environmental actions, hold corporations and the government accountable, and lobby for additional environmental protections. With its compelling case studies and calls to action, this book is essential for all who wish to gain a deeper understanding of how US environmental policies and laws have developed and transformed - and how they can continue to do so.

E Pluribus One

Sophia A. Nelson
Authors:
Sophia A. Nelson

In her newest book, political pundit and thought leader Sophia Nelson encourages readers to rediscover America's lost political enthusiasm, passion, and civility by introducing the codes of how Americans are called to lead and be engaged as citizens. From Code #1, "Courage , Conviction and Character," to Code, # 10 Commit, E-PLURIBUS ONE offers these codes as a solution to the great political divide. Including a substantive analysis of the American political landscape, Nelson challenges readers to get reconnected and re-engaged; to answer the call of service and of unity; and to demand more of those who seek our votes and work toward a more perfect union. Readers will be energized and motivated to focus on our Oneness in a way that they have not, since our great democratic republic was formed in 1776.

A Generation of Sociopaths

Bruce Cannon Gibney
Authors:
Bruce Cannon Gibney

We are living in a time when it has become fashionable to question the American Dream and to proclaim the end of American exceptionalism (though it's not clear what that is or was). It's Reagan's, Bush's, Clinton's, Bush's, Obama's fault that social security is under threat, government spending on healthcare remains unfunded, roads and bridges are cracking, interest hovers at zero, real job and wage growth have disappeared. Both political parties get blamed. But who make up these parties' constituencies, those who have wielded power for over 30 years? Baby boomers.Styled as a polemic, A GENERATION OF SOCIOPATHS argues for swift action to curtail the benefits that baby boomers have taken from other Americans, serving only their own needs at the expense of both the nation and future generations. Gibney outlines how our country, once at the brink of prosperity and peace, has been hijacked for the self-serving needs of those born of the Greatest Generation. Despite how stark that appears, the world is not zero sum; there is no reason that the improving international standard of living and economy must weigh in at the expense of our own. America currently stands at an intersection and must answer the decide whether to take steps to restore our infrastructure and make actual investments to the future or continue to fund an excessive lifestyle through debt.Exhaustively researched and passionately argued, A GENERATION OF SOCIOPATHS will become a landmark book about the American economy and policymaking.

CFT Made Simple

Russell Kolts
Authors:
Russell Kolts

Created by world-renowned psychologist Paul Gilbert, compassion-focused therapy (CFT) is extremely effective in helping clients work through painful feelings of shame and self-criticism. However, the theoretical aspects of this therapy-such as evolutionary psychology, attachment theory, and affective neuroscience-can make CFT difficult to grasp. This book provides everything you need to start implementing CFT in practice, either as a primary therapy modality or as an adjunctive approach to other therapies, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and more.CFT has unique strengths, and is especially effective in helping clients work through troubling thoughts and behaviors, approach themselves and others with greater compassion and kindness, and feel safer and more confident in their ability to handle life's challenges and difficulties. This book articulates the theoretical basis of the therapy in simple, easy-to-follow language, and offers practical guidance and strategies on how to tailor your CFT approach to specific client populations.As a clinician interested in the benefits of CFT but wary of the dense theoretical principles that lay behind it, you need a user-friendly guide that will let you hit the ground running. CFT Made Simple is that guide.

Into the Heart of Mindfulness

Ed Halliwell
Authors:
Ed Halliwell

Plagued by anxiety and depression for much of his twenties and early thirties, Ed Halliwell frantically searched for ways to understand and relieve his distress. Eventually he stumbled on meditation and Buddhism, and discovered a path that was different from the other medical, psychological and spiritual cures he had tried. That path was mindfulness and the deeper he went into the practice the more it transformed his life, easing his depression and helping him see each moment as precious. A one-time editor for FHM magazine, Ed's life has changed radically - he now teaches mindfulness to others.In this book, Ed explores how mindfulness can help us see and transform our unhelpful biases and habits, enable us to live more at peace with stress and uncertainty, cultivate cheerfulness and compassion, and help us to find our life's calling - if we are willing to journey to the heart of the practice. Offering his own experiences as inspiration, Ed emphasises that mindfulness training is a lifelong path and complete way of being rather than just a short course or quick fix. With practical advice and refreshing candour, he explores how working with the realities of our minds, bodies and day-to-day existence - rather than striving for positive results - can, paradoxically, help us rediscover a richly nourishing, deeply-textured life.
