Overview

“GANGSTER GOVERNMENT”
Columnist Michael Barone invented the phrase.
President Obama has perfected the practice.


And in this new and stunning book, New York Times best-selling author David Freddoso (The Case Against Barack Obama) provides the much-needed exposé of an administration that has brought Chicago-style corruption and strong-arm politics to Washington, looking to reward its friends (the unions, federal workers, and other liberal interest groups) and punish its enemies (the private sector workers and taxpayers who foot the bill for Obama¹s massive expansion of the federal government).

In Gangster Government you'll learn, among other shocking revelations:
How the Obama administration has used “czars” and “recess appointments” to install powerful bureaucrats, some with extreme views and shady pasts, without congressional oversight
How the Obama administration ignored the Constitution and reversed 100 years of bankruptcy law to reward its friends (the United Autoworkers) in the GM and Chrysler bailout
Why even the pretense of “cutting costs” in Obamacare came second to rewarding the Democrat-supporting trial lawyers' lobby
Why, ignoring federal law, the Obama administration is trying to shield the TSA workers who search passengers at airports from private sector competition
How the trillion dollar "stimulus" was directed overwhelmingly at protecting government workers supported by the taxpayers
Why “green jobs” are all about shaking down the taxpayer for favored businesses—not about truly “sustainable” energy or jobs
How the Obama administration bullies private businesses and even state governments that don't cooperate with gangster government

Gangster Government is a devastating and revealing look at the momentous first two years of the Obama administration and its subversion of our Constitution and laws. It casts a hard look at a president whose training on Chicago’s political playground shines through every bent law and every broken promise.

the truth hurts. not sure why if you do not like obamas politics you are considered racist and a far right extremist. i am neither. this is an honest look at what this administration has done, right under our noses. regardless of your political afffiliation you need to know how his policies are dividing this country more than ever and the price you and your kids will pay.

"gangster goverment" is very hard to to put down. the arthur has documented the many promises that president obama has made to the american people and has not kept them and the book also shows how he has totally ignorned the constition and goes into great detail to use the american tax dollors to bail out the gm and chrysler car companys went they went out of bussiness and there is also great research into the many tzars that were not approved by congress but have so much leadership over our country this book would make a great gift idea for a friend or family member

Freddoso has compiled a serious list of charges, and has provided adequate empirical support for some and circumstantial support for the others. Whether you voted for "O" or not (and I did), the material deserves careful consideration as the next election gets closer.

This book is so carefully documented and fact checked it is difficult to ignore what we as citizens are facing today with big government. A MUST READ!

David Freddoso sounds a warning about the changing role of government in his new book, Gangster Government. He describes the policies, laws and tactics that have already reshaped interactions between citizens and their government. Beginning with the auto bailout, he reports the facts in a journalistic and engaging style. He draws on his prowess as a reporter to explore Obama's relationship with unions, his questionable treatment of political opponents and the Administration's sustained efforts to undercut the political process. While clearly not a fan of the Obama Administration, Freddoso uses factual information to reveal some deeply disturbing events. This book is not a political rant, but a well-crafted wake up call!

A "must read" before the 2012 election. Looks like Chicago politics deserve the bad reputation they've held for decades.
