“A blazing flamethrower of truth, Michael Savage pulls no punches and goes right for the jugular with facts, not vacuous hyperbole.”
—Ted Nugent, Washington Times

Michael Savage, the mega-popular radio host and New York Times bestselling author of Trickle Up Poverty, offers an explosive election-year call to arms to retake the White House from the clutches of tyranny and preserve American greatness. Staunchly determined to help “crush Barack Obama’s dreams of a Socialist America,” Savage unleashes a relentless barrage of conservative common sense in Trickle Down Tyranny, designed to help patriotic citizens preserve what is good and right in our imperiled nation.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It’s difficult to exaggerate Savage’s animus toward Barack Obama. For the conservative radio host, Obama is a “naked Marxist,” who, if re-elected, will make himself “president for life.” Savage (Trickle Up Poverty) tries to lacerate many areas of the Obama administration’s domestic and foreign policy, as well as alleged instances of malfeasance and corruption in the Justice Department and elsewhere. Unfortunately, he clutters his narrative with charges such as the claim that the Occupy Wall Street movement is characterized by “public nudity, masturbation and sexual intercourse... carried out daily.” Worse, the book is marred by name-calling (even Newt Gingrich is seen as a “fat, frumpy, unprincipled charlatan”) and McCarthyite smears (Savage calls the Jewish Funds for Justice, a liberal philanthropic organization, “a communist-socialist group”). Savage’s sources prove flimsy; for example, he bases his statement that Michelle Obama went on a “2½-year million vacation spending spree” on an article in the Daily Mail, a British tabloid. Savage engages his fans with wild allegations and conspiracy theories, such as the claim that Obama is “determined to give our southwestern states to Mexico”: shrill fearmongering that his listeners have come to accept from a hardened ideologue. Agent: Ian Kleinert, Objective Entertainment. (Apr.)
Washington Times
“A how-to guide on fixing our national crisis. ... A damning critique not only of the Obama administration but also the half of the population that put him in office and still supports his devastating policies.”
Library Journal
Host of the No. 3 radio program in the nation, heard by nearly eight million listeners a week and syndicated across the United States in over 300 markets, Savage continues his rant against "Barack Lenin." Not a book to make everyone happy, but the 250,000-copy first printing and one-day laydown on April 3 indicates that the audience will be large.
Kirkus Reviews
One of talk radio's most inflammatory voices fires a damp squib at the president, the liberal media and society in general. Renowned for exploding into fits of vulgar profanity at the slightest provocation, Savage (Trickle Up Poverty: Stopping Obama's Attack on Our Borders, Economy, and Security, 2010, etc.) has long inspired theories that his rabidly conservative posturing is an elaborate put-on. Whether or not his radio persona is a calculated ruse, it is clear that his books are an afterthought, a sideshow with no other aim than generating profit. To say that Trickle Down Tyranny was phoned in would be too generous to a man who has made a fortune by shouting apoplectically. Most of the book reads like a high school intern combed through a year of his transcripts and deliberately selected the most soporific snippets, stitching them together at random into a manuscript-length document. Equally sure that he's sharing secret knowledge that no one else has the courage or wherewithal to state and that everything he says is just common sense, Savage provides little substantiation for his assertions. He delves deeply into arcane conspiracy theories involving the Trilateral Commission, George Soros and the Weather Underground. The author vaguely sorts his fiery statements ("The Occupy Wall Street demonstrators have one important characteristic in common with Barack Obama and Adolf Hitler: They're blatantly anti-Semitic") and rhetorical questions ("Is Holder going to pardon the Gitmo terrorists…and then release them with compensation because they were freedom fighters…? Is this part of Obama's overall plan to grant amnesty to illegal aliens in order to get reelected?") into sections dealing with finance, foreign policy, energy and so on, but no other organization or structure is in evidence. Fans of Savage's radio program should stick to the genuine article; opponents of President Obama should turn to someone whose sympathies are not so mercenary and self-serving.

Mr Savage tells the truth the Left doesn't want the world to hear, and he does with all with FACTS. Thank you Michael Savage. Now just watch and see all the negative comments that will follow from those who haven't read a single word written by Dr. Savage.

Another spot on book by Mr. Savage. Very, Very, intelligent person. Tells it like it is. Liberals don't like the light shining on them - they do not like to get out from under their rocks. A great read. Hopefully we will be able to get away from this socialist government soon.

Dr. Savage tells it like it is. Thank you for your clarity and insight. Should be required reading for all voters!

Publisher's Weekly clearly doesn't realize that Savage is an independent, which is why he can criticize even Newt Gingrich without being out of character. It's not a RINO book. Mr. Savage footnotes source material and backing to his facts. If you want the truth, read it. Thank goodness someone with this reach is courageous enough to be the lone voice screaming in the darkness this country has fallen under. A stimulating and inspiring read!

This book should be required reading for every high school and college student in America.

Hard hitting, insightful, scarry, and elections have consequences, be careful how you vote.

Reading this is enough to make a preacher cuss about this administration. Mr. Savage puts forth many a scenario that may well seem outlandish and fearmongering. BUT, he backs them up with facts and one factual citation after another. I have recommended this book to all my right thinking friends, that's nearly everyone in case you're interested. None have written back to tell me that I'm nuts for reading this and, better yet, believing Mr. Savage's findings. So...get it, paper copy or electronic on Nook. It's more that worth your time to read and comprehend.

Michael Savage is extremely insightful with "Trickle Down Tyranny"! He sheds light on what the mainstream media overlooks and informs the literate public about modern day politics. He has written almost 30 books, is very well accomplished, and Dr. Savage knows what he's talking about!

As only Dr. Savage can he presents the unabashed truth about the most corrupt and vile admistration in history. The Obama admistration attacks success and praises the lazy and victimhood. Our military is being set up. This book is number one.

Just finished the book. And I really think that Everyone Should be made to read this

A painful book to read... but in a "good" way... because the truth hurts, and ultimately, the truth is GOOD for you. Think of reading this book as if you were pouring hydrogen peroxide on a gaping, open, bleeding wound. You'd hate every minute of it, but in the end, you would be MUCH better off. With regard to naysayers' reviews of this same book, I ask: Are the words in this book making you feel "pain"? If so, may I suggest that you step back and at least wonder, is it a "bad" or a "good" pain that you revolt against?

Savage tells it like it is, find out what's going on with your country because it's being hijacked by politicians who have only their interests in mind.

Awesome book. Savage's best yet. He is one of the very few with the guts to tell the truth about where BO is taking the country. A must read if you care about the future of your country and your children!
