What People are saying about this

Alice Cherbonnier
"A journalist himself, Walter Brasch does not spare the media in his well-informed and well-written account of the real-time history of this benighted era. It should serve as a call to action in behalf of our imperiled democracy."--(Alice Cherbonnier, editor, Baltimore Chronicle)
Jeffrey St. Clair
"Like a political spelunker, veteran journalist Walter Brasch descends into the grimier chambers of American life under the Bush administration. From the brittle pieties of fundamentalist preachers to domestic snooping by governmental voyeurs, Brasch shines a merciless light on the moral hypocrites and constitutional villains who act as the self-appointed protectors of the nation. In a climate of public panic and official paranoia, Brasch keeps his cool while interpreting the political crime scene, offering rationality as a signpost through the perilous labyrinth of the post-9/11 world. While the story here is unsettling, Brasch's writing is propelled by a lively sense of humor and an acute sensitivity to the darker ironies of our times."--(Jeffrey St. Clair, co-editor, CounterPunch; and author of Grand Theft Pentagon)
Jim Hightower
"When most Americans and the mainstream media were accepting whatever they were told by the Bush Administration, Walter Brasch was meticulously peeling away the incompetence, deceit, corruption and, most of all, their cavalier attitude to the Constitution. Sinking the Ship of State reveals the heavy price that our country has paid for their arrogance, autocracy, and avarice."--(Jim Hightower, syndicated columnist; author of There's Nothing in the Middle of the Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos and Thieves in High Places)
Rob Kall
"A powerful, compelling and accurate indictment of the Bush administration. Walter Brasch is a journalist who for more than four decades has not been afraid to question authority-to ask the tough questions and speak the truth, no matter what the rest of the media say. During a time when the mainstream media were either inept or afraid to challenge a sitting president, Brasch has constantly pointed out constitutional and civil rights violations. This book pulls the story together into a whole so the sum of the parts add up to a fascinating big picture that is far worse than any of the mainstream media portrayed."--(Rob Kall, editor, OpEd News)
