The Swamp

Washington's Murky Pool of Corruption and Cronyism and How Trump Can Drain It
Author: Eric Bolling

Page: 240

The Instant New York Times and USA Today Bestseller! When Washington D.C. was first built, it was on top of a swamp that had to be drained. Donald Trump says it's time to drain it again. In The Swamp, bestselling author and Fox News Channel host Eric Bolling presents an infuriating, amusing, revealing, and outrageous history of American politics, past and present, Republican and Democrat. From national political scandals to tempests in a teapot that blew up; bribery, blackmail, bullying, and backroom deals that contradicted public policies; cronyism that cost taxpayers hundreds upon hundreds of millions of dollars; and personal conduct that can only be described as regrettable, The Swamp is a journey downriver through the bayous and marshes of Capitol Hill and Foggy Bottom. The presidential election of 2016 was ugly, but it exposed a political, media, industry, and elite establishment that desperately wanted to elect a politician who received millions of dollars from terror-funding states over a businessman willing to tell the corrupt or incompetent, “You’re fired.” The book concludes with a series of recommendations for President Trump: practical, hard-headed, and concise ways to drain the swamp and force Washington to be more transparent, more accountable, and more effective in how it serves those who have elected its politicians and pay the bills for their decisions. Last year President Trump declared Wake Up America to be a "huge" book; Eric Bolling's second book is sure to build on that success. Entertaining and timely, The Swamp is the perfect book for today's political climate.

The Old Man and the Swamp

A True Story About My Weird Dad, a Bunch of Snakes, and One Ridiculous Road Trip

I have nothing against snakes, provided that they’re hundreds of miles away from me. And I have nothing against my dad, given the same set of conditions. In a fit of questionable judgment, consummate indoorsman John Sellers tags along on a journey to search for snakes with his eccentric, aging father—an obsessive fan of Bob Dylan, a giver of terrible gifts, a drinker of boxed wine, a minister- turned-heretic, and, most importantly, the self-designated guardian of the threatened copperbelly water snake. The quest is their fumbling attempt to reconnect. Decades of bitterness, substance abuse, acrimonious divorce, and divergent opinions about personal hygiene have conspired to make the two estranged. Sellers has just begun to develop a new appreciation for the American wilderness, and all the slithering creatures that populate it, when his father’s deteriorating health thwarts their mission and disturbs their tentative peace. Determined to finish what they started, he ventures back into the swamp— alone, but more connected to his dad than ever. With big-hearted humor and irreverence, The Old Man and the Swamp tells the story of a father who always lived on his own terms and the son who struggled to make sense of it all.

Lavish parties. Committee chairmanships for sale. Pay-to-play corruption. Backroom arm-twisting. Votes on major legislation going to the highest bidder. Welcome to Washington, D.C., the swamp that President Donald Trump was elected to drain. Congressman Ken Buck is blowing the whistle on the real-life House of Cards in our nation's capital. Elected in 2014 as president of one of the largest Republican freshman classes ever to enter Congress, Buck immediately realized why nothing gets done in Congress, and it isn't because of political gridlock—in fact, Republicans and Democrats work together all too well to fleece taxpayers and plunge America deeper into debt. "It is an insular process directed by power-hungry party elites who live like kings and govern like bullies," Buck reports. Buck has witnessed first-hand how the unwritten rules of Congress continually prioritize short-term political gain over lasting, principled leadership. When Buck tangled with Washington power brokers like former Speaker John Boehner, he faced petty retaliation. When he insisted Republicans keep their word to voters, he was berated on the House floor by his own party leaders. When other members of Congress dared to do what they believed to be right for America instead of what the party bosses commanded, Buck saw them stripped of committee positions and even denied dining room privileges by the petty beltway bullies. In Drain the Swamp, Buck names names and tells incredible true stories about what really happened behind closed doors in Congress during legislative battles that have ensued over the last two years including budget, continuing resolutions, omnibus, trade promotion authority, Iran, and more. If the Trump administration is going to bring real change to Washington, it first needs to get the whole story—from deep inside the swamp.

Can the US Survive the Last 100 Years of Sociocommunist Societal Rot?

What is happening in the ostensible “Land of the Free”? At a time when the freedoms of assembly and speech no longer exist on college and university campuses across the US, when students are swept up into violent protests organized and funded by a lethal combination of die-hard revolutionaries and well-intentioned but woefully misguided and guilt-ridden members of the nouveau riche, and when US political factions are more polarized than at any time since the Civil War, objective observers are forced to ask, “Is the US now on the brink of a revolution?” The author identifies key developments over the last one hundred years which may have escaped the notice of the vast majority of US citizens but nonetheless have been laying the groundwork for a sociocommunist take-over. He warns that a “hot” revolution like the US Civil War is a distinct possibility, and then outlines steps that can be taken to prevent it while preserving the US as a constitutional democratic republic.

The Swamp Fox

How Francis Marion Saved the American Revolution
Author: John Oller
Publisher: Da Capo Press
ISBN: 0306824582

Page: 400

In the darkest days of the American Revolution, Francis Marion and his band of militia freedom fighters kept hope alive for the patriot cause during the critical British "southern campaign." Employing insurgent guerrilla tactics that became commonplace in later centuries, Marion and his brigade inflicted enemy losses that were individually small but cumulatively a large drain on British resources and morale. Although many will remember the stirring adventures of the "Swamp Fox" from the Walt Disney television series of the late 1950s and the fictionalized Marion character played by Mel Gibson in the 2000 film The Patriot, the real Francis Marion bore little resemblance to either of those caricatures. But his exploits were no less heroic as he succeeded, against all odds, in repeatedly foiling the highly trained, better-equipped forces arrayed against him. In this action-packed biography we meet many colorful characters from the Revolution: Banastre Tarleton, the British cavalry officer who relentlessly pursued Marion over twenty-six miles of swamp, only to call off the chase and declare (per legend) that "the Devil himself could not catch this damned old fox," giving Marion his famous nickname; Thomas Sumter, the bold but rash patriot militia leader whom Marion detested; Lord Cornwallis, the imperious British commander who ordered the hanging of rebels and the destruction of their plantations; "Light-Horse Harry" Lee, the urbane young Continental cavalryman who helped Marion topple critical British outposts in South Carolina; but most of all Francis Marion himself, "the Washington of the South," a man of ruthless determination yet humane character, motivated by what his peers called "the purest patriotism." In The Swamp Fox, the first major biography of Marion in more than forty years, John Oller compiles striking evidence and brings together much recent learning to provide a fresh look both at Marion, the man, and how he helped save the American Revolution.

Atrakithis, an ancient evil being unwittingly released from her timeless captivity will embark on a journey to fulfill a centuries-old prophecy. The battle between good and evil is taking place in the most unsuspecting and unlikely locale: where a demon's birth threatens all living things within and surrounding the border of a swamp. Powers and forces long forgotten reemerge after centuries of dormancy. The agents of good and light call upon mere mortals, who must find within themselves the courage and determination to overcome the evil plaguing Southeastern Massachusetts. For the first time, the families of Clearmont encounter fear on its most primal level. As the environmentally protected wetlands that comprise nearly fifty percent of Clearmont's area shrivel and turns to an ashen wasteland of death, the songs of the birds and ambient sounds of the night world turns eerily silent. Until now, the gossip of affairs and small town politics filled the headlines of The Clearmont Times. In the past month, a rash of disappearances and murders has changed the center of the legendary Bridgewater Triangle: an area with a history of supernatural happenings, witchcraft, UFO sightings, and a massive creature that appears only once every quarter-century. Billy Osbon, a local police officer, trying to make sense of current events that challenge his beliefs; Jonathan Bailey, a retired folklorist, whose ancestors first settled Clearmont, and his estranged son Philip seek legends from stories and songs of old that may hold the key to stopping the mystical and dark forces that has afflicted the Hockamock sw& Jacob Farmouth, a mountain man avenging his father's death, along with his father's unethical business partner Dan Bores, search for the evidence to clear their names, as they are branded fugitives for the gruesome murder of William Farmouth, a successful Colorado businessman; and Ferdinand Velazquez, a boy on the run, hunted by demons and a psychopath, are the mortals who mu

“Librarians often say that every book is not for every child, but The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp is” (The New York Times). Meet Bingo and J’miah, raccoon brothers on a mission to save Sugar Man Swamp in this rollicking tale and National Book Award Finalist from Newbery Honoree Kathi Appelt. Raccoon brothers Bingo and J’miah are the newest recruits of the Official Sugar Man Swamp Scouts. The opportunity to serve the Sugar Man—the massive creature who delights in delicious sugar cane and magnanimously rules over the swamp—is an honor, and also a big responsibility, since the rest of the swamp critters rely heavily on the intel of these hardworking Scouts. Twelve-year-old Chap Brayburn is not a member of any such organization. But he loves the swamp something fierce, and he’ll do anything to help protect it. And help is surely needed, because world-class alligator wrestler Jaeger Stitch wants to turn Sugar Man swamp into an Alligator World Wrestling Arena and Theme Park, and the troubles don’t end there. There is also a gang of wild feral hogs on the march, headed straight toward them all. The Scouts are ready. All they have to do is wake up the Sugar Man. Problem is, no one’s been able to wake that fellow up in a decade or four… Newbery Honoree and Kathi Appelt’s story of care and conservation has received five starred reviews, was selected as a National Book Award finalist, and is funny as all get out and ripe for reading aloud.
