Overview

The #1 New York Times bestseller, Culture of Corruption is now in paperback! Featuring a brand new introduction and completely updated throughout, this investigative tour-de-force by bestselling author Michelle Malkin delivers a powerful, damning, and comprehensive indictment of the culture of corruption that surrounds Team Obama’s brazen business-as-usual influence peddlers. From power broker Rahm Emanuel, to pay-to-play tainted Michelle Obama and Joe Biden, to ethically challenged Tim Geithner, to crime-coddling corporate lawyer Eric Holder, Culture of Corruption proves that this is the government of the crony, by the lobbyist, and for the well-heeled. Obama lacks the will to change Washington politics, and Malkin reveals what his agenda means for his presidency—and America.

What People Are Saying

Mark Levin
"Culture of Corruption, by my good friend and intrepid reporter Michelle Malkin, reveals all the sordid details the Obama Administration would rather you not know-the sleaze, corruption, and self-dealing of the Chicago Machine that lets no 'crisis' go to waste. A powerful and necessary indictment of what 'hope and change' really means."--(Mark Levin, author of the New York Times bestsellers Liberty and Tyranny and Men in Black)
Mark Steyn
"Dogged, fiercely independent, and with a brilliant eye for the telling detail, Michelle Malkin has now turned her formidable skills to the bright new dawn of the Obama era, and the ever widening gulf between the hopey-changey rhetoric and the murkier reality. Her riveting portrait of unsavory cronies parceling out the spoils of government is somewhat at odds with the impression you may have gained from the besotted Tiger Beat correspondents of the mainstream media. I will leave it to the reader to decide which view is more persuasive, but let's just say that, if more journalists were like Michelle Malkin, American newspapers might still have a future."--(Mark Steyn, author of the New York Times bestseller America Alone)

    The Chicago Machine Revealed,

    Michelle did an awesome job of laying out the trail of corruption that follows the Obama administration. It made me realize that this administration is no different than any other. I love the way Michelle uncovers the little known facts about Obama's appointees. It made me clearly see their agenda and how they are in the process of paying back the people who got them there. It's commentary like this book that will shed light on what these politicians are capable of and help us to avoid being sold a bill of goods.

    Enlightening

    This is a most enlightening book on the Obama administration. The book is obviously not meant for the unintelligent person. To read it requires an open mind and the ability to independently verify facts. Given you are open minded and sufficiently intelligent enough to independently verify facts, you will enjoy the book. If you are sound byte oriented, and lack the ability to follow a concept for more then a sentence phase, the book is not for you.

    Marxism finest hour

    There is no doubt that the writing will stimulate the New Revolution of the middle class. As Mark Levine states the Statist or Marxist knows the middle class must be either destroyed or brought to a non-thinking status. Michelle enlightens those THAT do read and appreciate facts and shares that information, particularly since the socialist media will not. I appreciate her courage to bring this enlightening information to main street USA. This along with other factual books on this administration will rally the true American. We will either stand up for The Framers of our constitution and what they fought so hard for or we shall fall and the gift given will be no more.

    Enlightening

    Michelle Malkin is a gifted thinker, researcher and advocate for ethical leadership in government. She tells it like it is and backs up her words with well-documented facts. Those who reject her writings out-of-hand do so because she disagrees with their less-well researched and thought-out opinions. We are fortunate to have someone like Michelle who helps us with her always valid perspectives presented concisely and professionally. Every American would be wise to read and consider her thoughts and ideas. We should try to encourage her to run for public office. She would get my vote.

    The book is about people, not politics

    For all the bashers of Malkin's book, I have yet to read a single review that legitimately challenges anything in the book. The biggest criticism I've heard is that Obama's presidency is only 7 months old, so how could she have already passed judgment?

    The reality is that she isn't judging the effectiveness of Obama's presidency, and her publisher has done a disservice to the book by trying to sell it that way. The book is about the people in the Obama administration and what they were doing for a living before they were hired to work for Obama. I am appalled that 90% of these people aren't in federal prison, and if they didn't work for Obama, where their indiscretions can be swept under the rug of government secrecy, some of them might very well be.

    Malkin has meticulously researched the backgrounds of all the key players in the administration and traced their alliances with the banks whose activities caused the financial meltdown, involvement with the thugocrat practices of the big labor unions, allegiances to corrupt politicians like former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, tax evasion schemes, Obama's own nefarious relationships with SEIU and ACORN, and all the promises of transparency and ethical behavior Obama hasn't delivered on. Malkin even devotes an entire chapter to Michelle Obama and the patient-dumping scheme she designed and executed when she was running the University of Chicago Medical Center, aided by Obama's senior adviser, David Axelrod. Anyone who believes the Obamas really want quality health care for all should take a look at this chapter and see just how poorly Michelle treated patients who couldn't afford to pay for services at her hospital.

    Again, this is not a political commentary on the Obama presidency; it is a rather disgusting expose of all the dirty details you'll never see on the resumes of any of the people chosen to work for him. For those of you wondering how much is fact and how much is fiction, Malkin ends her book with a list of sources almost 80 pages long. You can verify it all yourself, if you're so inclined.

    If you're a huge Obama fan and you don't want to believe him guilty of associating with union thugs and white-collar criminals, this isn't the book for you. If you want to know the truth about the kind of people who are running your country, it is a very enlightening read.

    Only the blind will dismiss this

    As a avid follower of Ms. Malkin, I know how long she's been collecting her information and doing extensive research on this farce of an administration and the congress that upholds it. Anyone who wants to blindly reject this as right-wing attack on the glorious One, will regret it in 4 years. There is a long line of corruption, lies and theft that is the Democratic party and people like Obama are deeply rooted in it. His lifelong ties to radicals and corrupt politicians should make any wise voter scratch their heads. His connection to ACORN, Fannie & Freddie, SEIU etc. are just the tip of his corrupt iceberg. If you care about this country and seek to review the evidence of this new culture of corruption we now live in, look no further. And to those that think this is a book of lies, prove it. Attempt to debunk anything Michelle has laid out.

    It's about time... everyone must be accountable.. and no one is above the law. I think the American people have forgoten this.

    I think that the news media is scared to research the czars. All of our politicians need to ask the hard questions.One person shouldn't make these decisions on who gets the job. In my profession the best person gets the job, not our friends?

    Worth every penny

    The Chicago underworld is alive and well and lives in the White House. Well written compendium of substantiated facts. Makes the Clinton gang look like Boy Scouts. Actually does for Obama what the fat guy in the ball cap was incapable of doing in his book on President Bush. Should be mandatory reading for all Americans.

    Well Researched

    Congratulations Michelle, well done. Interesting and enlighting. Great read for anyone who is open to consider another point of view.
    Finally some truth for those of us that cannot believe what is happening to our country. Great job of establishing a timeline, researching and tracking all the "characters" in this socialist drama. With the mainstream media on the Obama bandwagon we need someone who has the nerve to tell it like it is. Just plain ole dirty Chicago politics taken to the nth degree.

    A Good Chunk of Americans Refuse to See The Truth About Their So-Called "Messiah"

    Some of the Obama-mania is thankfully winding down. What most Americans thought was the modern-day savior is turning out to be worse than just your common, everyday politician. In fact, Barack Obama has an agenda...a bold, threatening agenda that will plummet the United States into complete and total anarchy, destroying the foundation of what makes America the greatest country on earth. Thankfully, many Americans are coming out of their liberal media-induced comas and discovering that Obama is one of the most dangerous and radical Presidents this country has ever seen. Michelle Malkin has no qualms exposing Obama for what he really is, instead of what CNN would like for us to think he is. When you look past Obama's unjustified media build-up, when you stop believing he is a Messiah and see what he really is, you soon realize we were sold a very, very bad bag of goods. Malkin justifies what those of us who never supported Obama knew from the beginning and those who got caught up in the whole "Obama Means Hope" craze will be in for a very rude awakening as the **FACTS** and I repeat, **FACTS** unfold in this very informative page-turning revelation in the form of a book.

    Most Intelligent Read to Date on Obama

    If you've been bothered by the "too smooth" Obama speechmaking and the broad paintbrush he uses, rather than the slender pen of detail, you'll find Michelle Malin's book a relief to read. She answers all those pricklies you felt during the campaign and the outright "whoa there" feelings you've experienced since Obama took up residence in the White House. If you have any doubts, as she surely expected from many of her readers, she supplied 80 some pages of documented sources. You don't pick Chicago as your place to learn the politician's craft and then rise so quickly through its ranks and develop relationships with some of the most despised, irreverant, and even criminal associations as Obama did and come out as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. I'm not surprised that his curtain has fallen away so quickly; but I am indebted to someone like Michelle to pull it all together. I knew this man and those around him, like Axelrod, Emanuel, and Gibbs made my skin crawl. Now I know why. Everyone should read this book if you care about your country.

    Obama Fallacy

    Coming from a registered Independent who voted for Obama, this book was fabulous. Everyone with a brain should read this book. This book was very well researched and sheds the light on Barack Obama, the man, and those in his inner circle. At first i was skeptical of this book. But after reading this book and checking up on the research, i have now come to the conclusion that Barack Obama should be ashamed of himself for misleading the American people into believing that he would change Washington.

    OK read

    This book is very partisan and it gets very frustrating and annoying mid way through the book if your a libertarian or Democrat do not read it!!! I lost interest half way through and forced myself to read the rest because i bought it. I consider myself a libertarian that leans right in elections but this book is terrible. She only goes after democrats and no republicans and you know there is corruption on both sides. Its about Obama and his administration but she talks about some people in congress and if you do that then you have to include corrupt GOP leaders like Lindsey Gram and Olympia snow and all the rest.

    Obviously bull.

    I don't think it takes a genius to realize that this book was not written over the course of the last week. This book was written BEFORE the administrations first 6 months had passed, and then tries to say something about whats happened in the first 6 months. It doesn't take a genius to understand this opinion was formed not based on fact, because it was written about the first 6 months before they had passed. Propaganda and since I haven't read it, I'm not rating anything other than "Research" because I don't have to read it to use common sense and say "no research was done, the opinion about Obama's first 6 months and first 100 days was formed before either occurred."
