Overview

Breakthrough: Our Guerilla War to Expose Fraud and Save Democracy by James O'Keefe

The controversial and “courageous” (Glenn Beck) James O’Keefe, who Slate.com says “has had more of an impact on the 2012 election than any other journalist,” goes behind the scenes of the 2012 election cycle to reveal how our nation’s highest office is won—and lost.

Beginning with his release of video recordings of workers at ACORN offices in 2009, James O’Keefe has been on the front lines of journalism, exposing fraud and corruption at some of our most entrenched institutions, private and government alike. Expecting the 2012 election to be similarly unscrupulous in terms of voter fraud and political manipulation, he has rounded up a team of citizen journalists from his organization, Project Veritas, to investigate and chronicle the events of this critical election cycle.

As fair as we like to think our elections are, they are not. As protected as we like to think is our right to free speech, it is not. As free as we like to think ourselves, we are not. In fact, the nation is being sapped of its democratic vitality by this loose coalition of forces—government, media, political parties—that see themselves as progressive but that conspire to protect the status quo.

O’Keefe shares his team’s adventures during this cycle against the backdrop of the larger election story. Starting at the state houses, continuing up through Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice, and ending up at the White House, James O’Keefe provides a hard-hitting look at the unseen action behind the campaigns of our nation’s 2012 election process.

About the Author

James E.

Breakthrough takes readers through the life of an undercover journalist. It details the effect of the bias of the mainstream media and liberal government officials on O'Keefe, as well as how he has responded to these challenges. In the end, he overcomes these hurdles and learns lessons to maximize his effectiveness. A great read!

James O'Keefe has done an excellent job at exposing governmental/media fraud and they hate him for it. It is a shame that he has been treated so poorly for doing nothing more than ferreting out the cancerous ideologies and the organizations that practice them. If you don't like the media now, read this book and you will absolutely detest the media when you have finished Breakthrough. Not only will you dislike the media, but you may be left with a bitter taste in your mouth for modern academia and the justice system. Keep on fighting the good fight James and we will do out part and tune in.

Folks, pay attention to the cited publishers for any of these books. When you try to look up their offices, why do you end up in a vacant lot? Are any of these books legit independent reports, based upon some kind of fact? Why not? Don't trust any of this, use your heads.

This book revealed an enormous amount of fraud and corruption in many government agencies and taxfunded groups and the lengths those involved will go to suppress this knowledge from the public. Unfortunately most journalists go along to get along and will not buck the status quo. Thank God for someone like James O'Keefe who will not back down and follows through with what he knows is right.

Fast read. Shocking revelations. Reminds me of the feature film "Enemy of the State". Can't wait till Mr O'Keefe writes next book.

A must-read for all Conservatives. This book and the work of Project Veritas proves the collusion of the MSM and the Socialist "Progressives." Just when you thought America was the Land of the Free and people have freedom of speech, Mr. O'Keefe has taught us otherwise. I was surprised how far the anti-journalists are willing to goto suppress the truth in this country! The madness goes all the way to the top. Read this book, it will open your eyes.
