Former attorney general Edwin Meese III offers unequaled insight on the career and policies of his friend and former boss, Ronald Reagan. From Reagan's days as governor of California to his two terms in the White House, Meese was his highest-ranking political confidant-the official closest to Reagan not only through length of service but also through mutual comprehension of the problems that concerned the nation. Meese tells the Reagan story as it happened, refuting many common misconceptions about America's fortieth chief executive and providing new revelations about the Iran-Contra affair, the so-called Boland amendments, and more.
A shocking look at Governor Brown's appointment of judges who were far-left friends, donors, politicians and just shock value appointees, regardless of the lack of any qualifications in many, many cases. This book highlights the antics, bizarre behavior, and outright illegal actions of individuals before and after they were appointed by Brown as judges in California. It is also a factual look at the outrageous actions and the pro-criminal decisions of judges appointed by Governor Jerry Brown who changed laws, set liberal policies and gave special preferences to criminals and fellow acquaintances. Brown's most famous appointment as Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, Rose Bird, is revealed as a despot who championed anti-death penalty cases which hampered law enforcement and prosecutors while allowing criminals to avoid the death penalty. The Bird court overturned Rodney Alcala's first conviction for the murder of 12-year-old Robin Samsoe who was just convicted in 2010 for the third time for the same horrific murder. The Bird court also found that multiple forced rape, sodomy, and oral copulation do not constitute great bodily harm. Jerry Brown's judges managed to prevent the executions of ANY convicted murderer while he was Governor, consistent with Brown's own personal opposition to the death penalty. This book reveals shocking and unbelievable stories of the personal lives of judges Governor Brown appointed to the judiciary. Among the chapters you will find Brown judges violating the law, growing pot at home, friendly associations with known mobsters, violations of court ordered alimony and child support, and even criminal charges Democrats, Republicans, newspapers, and victims at the time agreed that Governor Brown's appointments were often shocking or ridiculous. His judicial legacy set the tone for years to come and many of his key appointments remain on the court today.
Joseph Story was a U.S. Supreme Court Justice from 1811-1845, and this is his classic guide to the U.S. Constitution.
When Barack Obama with great fanfare signed the 2009 stimulus bill, he quietly gutted America's most successful domestic policy achievement--the 1996 welfare reform. This revolutionary policy had freed millions of Americans from the shackles of dependency. There was no legitimate reason to undo what had succeeded, and the moral and economic costs will be huge. The facts are clear: welfare reform worked for America. And we urgently need to relearn "why."
"Government Is the Problem" is the story of a broken welfare system that needed to be fixed, of a great leader named Ronald Reagan who said that it "could" be fixed, of doubters who said that it could not be fixed, and of the man--Robert B. Carleson--who fixed it. Carleson pioneered the true reform that reversed a growing dependence on the welfare state and moved America away from the ruinous path of income redistribution.
Much has been written about welfare reform over the years - a lot of it by people who had no involvement with the process. But in this book the real story of how welfare was fixed is told. Bob Carleson has left a fascinating memoir of the insights and ideas that motivated welfare reform; of the controversies and obstacles that threatened to derail it; and of the principles that must be followed to direct scarce public resources to the truly needy.
With the country in economic crisis, Americans are asking questions about government intervention in the economy, about individual responsibility, and about the future of our children's freedom.
