"The final chapter is a kind of pep talk for the reader. It serves to remind the reader that Dr. Savage has not given up on America -- and neither should we."
4/5/12, "Savage New Territory: Trickle Down Tyranny," American Thinker, Larrey Anderson
"Having established in Chapter Three how the news is processed and perverted, in Chapter Four Savage moves into the coordinated corruption that exists between crony capitalists and the U.S. government. Goldman Sachs, George Soros, the IMF, and the Obama administration come under microscopic scrutiny. Savage isn't dealing in speculation. He's telling us some very unpleasant truths. Nearly every claim is backed with an endnote to a leading publication (like the Wall Street Journal, the BBC, the NYT and to our own American Thinker). There are 32 pages filled with 511 endnotes in this book.
Chapter Five deals with the practical responses from the right to leftist radicalism or "community organizing," specifically to Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. This is the only "how to" chapter -- and it is a good one. After dissecting Alinsky's influence and ideology, Dr. Savage lists six "Rules for Beating Radicals" (pp. 120-122). In keeping with the Savage extremism discussed in Chapter Three, Rule 5 is of particular interest -- and, I suggest, is a unique insight:
Attack Democrats before they attack you. Democrats like our president have no core principles except the lust for power. Following Alinsky, they say, "Make the enemy live up to his/her own book of rules." Because those on the left are unprincipled but will nonetheless attack you if you violate one of your principles, it is important to call them out based on your principles and demand that they act in a principled manner. [Page 121.]...
The next chapter shows the practical and economic consequences of the "Soros Doctrine" -- treating our enemies as allies and our allies as enemies. Savage does this on a country-by-country basis. He gives nine detailed examples: e.g., from Pakistan to England, from to Iran to Israel. Savage shows how the Soros Doctrine, combined with "responsibility to protect," is threatening worldwide freedom.
Savage is a scientist. It shows in his in-depth discussion in Chapter Nine, "Tyranny of Green Energy." Here is just one of the Savage gems from this chapter:
[A] total of 64 senators voted to approve at least one of the amendments [to prohibit the EPA from regulating carbon]. There is a majority in the Senate who want to deny the EPA this overreaching and dangerous authority, but the idiots in the chamber can't figure out a way to do it.
There are plenty of other facts about the green energy fiasco in this fascinating chapter."...
Savage's book on Amazon. To me Savage is a national treasure. He came from nothing, created something mighty out of thin air. Without him I would have given up on this country a long time ago. ed.
