Overview

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

In this New York Times bestseller, controversial ambush journalist James O’Keefe takes a hard-hitting look at how the media and government conspire to protect the status quo: “A spine-tingling, true crime thriller about the quest for truth in the age of media obfuscation” (Gavin McInnes, FOX News contributor).

Hailed by David Weigel in Slate as having “had more of an impact on the 2012 election than any journalist,” James O’Keefe is young, brash, and provocative: a new breed of guerrilla reporter for the twenty-first century. He and his associates have famously infiltrated some of America’s most protected organizations and institutions. Now, in Breakthrough, O’Keefe chronicles the harrowing undercover investigation that opened America’s eyes to the chicanery of its state houses and the duplicity of the White House during one of the most compromised election campaigns in our nation’s history: the 2012 presidential race.

Of all his controversial sting operations, this was the one that his late mentor, Andrew Breitbart, called “his most consequential.” While still on federal probation, O’Keefe organized an army of citizen journalists, planned a series of video stings to reveal the American system’s vulnerability to voter fraud, and went nose to nose with the most powerful political machine in the world. Along the way, O’Keefe found disheartening evidence that Americans are not nearly as free as we may believe, but also showed just how much real change ordinary citizens can bring about when they are willing to risk the wrath of the powerful.

Free of ideology, Breakthrough is at its core a clarion call for a more ethical society. Despite being vilified and libeled by an establishment media dedicated to suppressing the truth, James O’Keefe has dared to break through the firewall and reshape public opinion by showing things as they really are.

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.
