The Woking Dead are everywhere. An army of undead ghouls turning millions into mindless, ravenous devourers of all things good and American.

Donald J. Trump was the vaccine America needed. He fought for America against the Deep State and the woke maniacs relentlessly destroying everything Americans love. They’re attacking George Washington. They’re attacking Dave Chappelle and Abraham Lincoln. They have taken over the New York Times and the NBA. Trump understood this, and he stood, seemingly alone at times, against the cancel culture hordes clawing to take down the United States from within.

Rice understood the importance of Trump and why America needed him. This explains why many of Trump’s closest advisors have sought out A.J. Rice’s media advice and publicity help. If he wasn’t helping you today, chances are he will tomorrow.

Rice has fought behind the scenes for years, in ways you saw and heard but never understood—until now. A creative mind behind some of the nation’s most important talk radio stars and the strategist behind the America First books you love to read. Like it or not, his content has been around you in some form for decades.

He was in your favorite publications and behind some of America’s most courageous culture warriors and institutions, crafting strategy and winning the battles you care about. You’ve seen A.J. Rice's work for just never knew it.

In The Woking Dead, Rice reveals it all. This bracing, hilarious, biting, hard-hitting collection takes you deep into the fight to make America great again. Rice, a contributor to many popular publications and the CEO of Publius PR in Washington, DC, seeks to save America from Joe Biden and his woke zombie battalions in government, entertainment, academia, sports, and media. The Woking Dead will wake you up to what’s happening in your culture and help you gird your loins for the crazy years ahead.
