This politically incorrect author is a brave man!

Liberty's Last Stand is a remarkable political/espionage thriller. It is set in August 2016 less than 3 months before the presidential election. As he nears the end of two terms in office Democrat President Barry Soetoro uses some relatively small terrorist attacks, compared to 9/11/2001, as the excuse to launch himself into his planned position to be US president for life. He declares martial law, suspends habeas corpus, dissolves Congress arresting the Republican members, arrests his political enemies imprisoning some and executing others, issues an order confiscating all guns in private hands, dissolves the entire US judiciary substituting courts martial, and orders federalizing the National Guard troops in all states. Soetoro's most effective tool is the use of the many executive agency (eg., FEMA, EPA, Fish and Wildlife Service, Dept. of Agriculture, etc., etc.) SWAT-like units he has been arming to the hilt and training for more than 7 years for the purpose. Only Jake Grafton, Tommy Carmellini, a few other patriots, and the state of Texas stand in his way.

While I believe such a situation is very highly unlikely, I suspect there are many leftists in the US would cheer such a move. In any case it makes for a grand suspense novel. I enjoyed listening to Liberty's Last Stand. Eric Dove's narration is excellent

Today's Nightmares

This book is so pertinent to today's situations that you will think you are listening to a newscast. It is riveting and downright scarry on how easy todays fiction could be tomorrow's reality. It will open your eyes to the risks America faces.
