What the @$%&! just happened to America? That's the question that Monica Crowley, bestselling author, Fox News political analyst, columnist, and popular nationally syndicated radio host, asks—and answers—in this fast-paced, funny, and sharply argued tour of the country's disastrous years under Barack Obama, and an exuberant call for the great American comeback.

What the @$%&! just happened? What just happened to America? What happened to our strength and greatness? What happened to our constitutionally limited government? What happened to our powerful free-market system? What happened to our traditional rocket path of growth? What happened to American jobs? What happened to our prosperity? What happened to the greatest health care system in the world? What happened to our superpower status? What happened to our ability to be respected and feared? What's up with unprecedented spending and record-breaking deficits? Sixteen trillion dollars in debt? What the @$%&! just happened?

In What the (Bleep) Just Happened? Monica Crowley offers a rollicking, high-octane, and hilarious view of the damage caused by Barack Obama's extremist agenda. But she also sets the stage for the inevitable conservative comeback, calling for a return to the joyful spirit of the Reaganesque "Happy Warrior.” She will have you on your feet—cheering for America and what has always made it great—as she rallies us to get our exceptionalist groove back.

Editorial Reviews

Dennis Miller
“Well (bleep) me! What a great (bleeping) book!”
Mark Levin
“A rip-roaring, full-blast, raise the roof, side-splitting account of what the (bleep) just happened over the past few years---and how we can get our country back. A literary 21-gun salute to freedom.”
Sean Hannity
“This is the book Barack Obama and his pals don’t want you to read. Crowley has the guts to tell the truth about the damage they’ve inflicted. No sugar-coating. No political correctness. Just the facts--and they’re damning. This book is pure dynamite.”
Bill O'Reilly
“Monica Crowley wants to wage war against forces that would wipe out traditional America. But what’s different in her book - is the positive attitude she brings. You’ll be happy to read her words. No (bleep)!”
Larry Kudlow
“Can this nation be saved? Monica Crowley answers with a resounding ‘yes!’ in this brilliant, hilarious page-turner that may well—in fact, should—influence the very future of America.”
Rudolph Giuliani
“A brilliant and persuasive analysis of the relentless assault by the Obama administration on the principles that have made America the most exceptional nation in the world. And, a very well developed presentation of rational optimism - the happy warrior - as the process for restoring American ideals.”
Sarah Palin
“Monica nailed it! This book makes you want to stand up and shout, “(Bleep) no! We won’t concede America’s exceptionalism!” Monica’s writing is exciting, sharp, hot and hip, just like she is.”
Kirkus Reviews
Political smut, slander, fiction, paranoia and conspiracy theories from the last four years are repackaged into this corrosive brew by Fox News contributor and former Nixon foreign policy assistant Crowley (Nixon in Winter: His Final Revelations about Diplomacy, Watergate and Life Out of the Arena, 1998, etc.). Obama's "unaccountable ‘czars'…could operate with impunity," writes the author, "do all of [his] dirty work, and, at the end of a typical workday, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel would hand each of them a sweaty wad of untraceable bills." Throughout the book, this kind of vitriol corrodes any basis for rational discussion. Those who might laugh probably won't check the author's accounting of the stimulus program agreed upon by Congress and the executive branch in 2009, which included "$50 to convince Barbara Mikulski to jump off the ferryboat," and "$500 billion to paint Bill Clinton's face on the side of the pleasure boat." What might they think of those who get free Brazilian waxes and rides on Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Jet Ski thanks to the American taxpayer? As the book progresses, Crowley continues to blend hate- and anger-driven fiction in a strange never-never land of nonsense, in which no government social program, the author writes, "is about their superficial purpose." As expected, in this "war for the nation's future," Crowley wants to "discard the impulse toward social and economic justice" through the gutting of entitlement programs. If we don't act now, she writes, "we'll all speak Arabic, spend Chinese currency, and get abortions at the 7-Eleven." Most of the book is just a restatement of similar xenophobic, snarkily presented sentiment. More bilious pickings for Fox News junkies; all others should take a pass.

"What the bleep just happened" is absolutely right on the nose. Those who were angry with President Bush went whacko and straight to vote in a real loser for a President and now after almost 4 years these same voters are saying what the heck - this isn't what I wanted - what happened? Who is this guy in the White House? Hope and Change - HAAAH!!! Now we are just HOPING FOR CHANGE TO GET THIS LOSER OUT OF OFFICE before he sends our country straight to the bottom. Next time we must not let the Left-wing extremist media tell us who to vote for like they did in 2008. This is what you get when you don't do your research for yourself. Did you really want a President who would go around the world apologizing for America? Did you want your country to be at the bottom of military strength so that we get challenged by other countries? Did you want a President that would try to bypass the Supreme Court because he didn't like the way they ruled (Citizens United)? Have you ever seen a U.S. Attorney General sue so many of our states? Remember when Senator Obama only voted "Present" rather than making any real major decisions? What happened to "Transparency"? Pass Obamacare before we read it. What happened to "Post-racial"? Remember before Obama knew the facts he jumped to side with black Prof. Gates and against the Cambridge cop who happened to teach a class on race relations? Remember that JOBS, ECONOMY and HOUSING were the real important issues and what did this guy do - Obamacare. This shows you that he didn't give a darn about the American people. He has an agenda and that is exactly what he sticks to regardless of what happens to the jobs and economy. If you give this guy another 4 years, you will be asking yourself, "Don't I ever learn?" This book is trying to show you why the bleep this happened and be very careful not to let it continue for another 4 years.

Fabulous! Loved it! Monica has written an exceptional book that not only calls it like it is but, gives us a wake up call on what our country is facing if this current President is elected for another four more years! Even though she gives us hard facts of what has happened in the past four years to our country, you are able to chuckle at what the American voters elected into office. What were the voters thinking when they cast their ballot for President Obama? Thank God I wasn't one of them nor will I be in November!

Monica Crowley is a shining star on national radio and TV. You can find her on numerous talk radio stations around the country every weekend. I listen on the internet and am always amazed by her "unpacking" of the issues. Her book, "What The (Bleep) Just Happened," is a fantastic read and will inspire those concerned about the direction the US and our federal government is taking. Monica sees the danger clearly and warns that, "...The tyranny we face today does not stem from an external force, but from a far more dangerous and insidious internal one. It's a threat that moves stealthily, within the system, claiming to represent American values even as it seeks to undermine and ultimately destroy them." (p.10) As Monica says, "America is worth saving" and it's the job of all of us, to step up, and do what it takes to save HER!! Monica Crowley's new book will inspire you, to do just that!!!

Made me laugh and made me cry! Learned so much about what is happening in the US. Everyone interested in the affairs of our country should (bleeping) read this book!

Is she related to Aleister?

It is easy to write what Monica wrote when one starts by making a large number of false assumptions, so that the answers become just propaganda for the political right.

Yet another Fox Infomercial drone ignoring the facts. Over the last 40 years, the economy thrives under Democratic Presidents and takes a nosedive under Republican Presidents. It's there in the economic history but she joins the rest of the Fox Cult in ignoring it. The ONLY people who do better under Republican rule are the CEOs who get ever larger bonuses even when they (like Dick Cheyney, Twice) take their corporations into Bankruptcy.
