Show 1238 America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder by Bret Stephens

 Dennis Prager talks to Brett Stephens, foreign affairs columnist for the WSJ. His new book is America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder. 

Segment 2- Author Bret Stephens joins Riely and Scot on WROK to discuss the book.

 

Overview of the book-

-A world in which the leading liberal-democratic nation does not assume its role as world policeman will become a world in which dictatorships contend, or unite, to fill the breach. Americans seeking a return to an isolationist garden of Eden—alone and undisturbed in the world, knowing neither good nor evil—will soon find themselves living within shooting range of global pandemonium. —From the Introduction

 

In a brilliant book that will elevate foreign policy in the national conversation, Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist Bret Stephens makes a powerful case for American intervention abroad.

 

In December 2011 the last American soldier left Iraq. “We’re leaving behind a sovereign, stable, and self-reliant Iraq,” boasted President Obama. He was proved devastatingly wrong less than three years later as jihadists seized the Iraqi city of Mosul. The event cast another dark shadow over the future of global order—a shadow, which, Bret Stephens argues, we ignore at our peril.

 

America in Retreat identifies a profound crisis on the global horizon. As Americans seek to withdraw from the world to tend to domestic problems, America’s adversaries spy opportunity. Vladimir Putin’s ambitions to restore the glory of the czarist empire go effectively unchecked, as do China’s attempts to expand its maritime claims in the South China Sea, as do Iran’s efforts to develop nuclear capabilities. Civil war in Syria displaces millions throughout the Middle East while turbocharging the forces of radical Islam. Long-time allies such as Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Israel, doubting the credibility of American security guarantees, are tempted to freelance their foreign policy, irrespective of U.S. interests.

 

Deploying his characteristic stylistic flair and intellectual prowess, Stephens argues for American reengagement abroad. He explains how military intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan was the right course of action, foolishly executed. He traces the intellectual continuity between anti-interventionist statesmen such as Henry Wallace and Robert Taft in the late 1940s and Barack Obama and Rand Paul today. And he makes an unapologetic case for Pax Americana, “a world in which English is the default language of business, diplomacy, tourism, and technology; in which markets are global, capital is mobile, and trade is increasingly free; in which values of openness and tolerance are, when not the norm, often the aspiration.”

 

In a terrifying chapter imagining the world of 2019, Stephens shows what could lie in store if Americans continue on their current course. Yet we are not doomed to this future. Stephens makes a passionate rejoinder to those who argue that America is in decline, a process that is often beyond the reach of political cures. Instead, we are in retreat—the result of faulty, but reversible, policy choices. By embracing its historic responsibility as the world’s policeman, America can safeguard not only greater peace in the world but also greater prosperity at home.

 

At once lively and sobering, America in Retreat offers trenchant analysis of the gravest threat to global order, from a rising star of political commentary.

Show 1234 Robert Haddick- China, America and the Future of the Pacific

 

Robert Haddick, -Fire on the Water: China, America, and the Future of the Pacific,- Eight Bells Book Lecture, Naval War College Museum, Oct. 23, 2014.

 

Fire on the Water contends that much of the general public and many U.S. policy experts are unaware of the threat that China's military modernization poses to America's national interests in the Asia-Pacific region. The author maintains that within a decade China will have the military power to place U.S. influence throughout East Asia at risk. With that in mind, and to avoid a future crisis, the United States needs to fashion a new and more competitive strategy, one that better matches the strengths of the United States and its allies against China's vulnerabilities.

Show 1232 Dinesh D'Souza Documentary  America- Imagine a World without Her

 

America- Imagine a World without Her by Dinesh D'Souza

 

Overview of the Documentary-

Conceived in liberty...

...or in oppression?

 

Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege? Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world?

 

New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza says these questions are no mere academic exercise. It is the Progressive view that is taught in our schools, that is preached by Hollywood, and that shapes the policies of the Obama administration. If America is a force for inequality and injustice in the world, its power deserves to be diminished; if traditional America is based on oppression and theft, then traditional America must be reformed—and the federal government can do the reforming.

 

D'Souza, an Indian immigrant to this country, and proud American citizen, fears for America's future. He loves this country and fears that unless the Progressives' anti-American arguments are met forcibly and on their own terms, America will cease to be the beacon of freedom and hope that it always has been.

 

In America: Imagine a World without Her D'Souza offers a passionate and sharply reasoned defense of America, knocking down every important accusation made by Progressives against our country. In this book, you'll learn:

Why it is a pernicious myth that English colonists "stole" America from the Indians or that American settlers and soldiers "stole" the southwest from Mexico

Why the descendants of slaves—and the successive waves of immigrants to the United States—are better off here than in their old countries

How America, more than any other country, is based on rewarding the enterprise and hard-work of the common man

How traditional American virtues sustain prosperity and freedom, and Progressive arguments about "liberation" and "justice" undercut them

How Progressive demagoguery about "inequality" expands the power of government and its grasp on the taxpayer's wallet

Why we should fear the Progressive agenda of "reform" which is in fact an agenda of totalitarian control of the state over the individual

Why national decline is a choice—a choice that it is still not too late to reverse

 

Provocative in its analysis, stunning in its conclusions, Dinesh D'Souza's America will be the most talked about book of the year.

From the website-

LIBERTY-LOVING AMERICANS: YOU MUST WATCH OUR FILM EXPOSING HOW A SMALL GROUP OF WEALTHY LIBERALS OVERTOOK COLORADO. THEY USED EVERY SCHEME POSSIBLE TO IMPOSE A BACKWARD AGENDA AND THEY TRANSFORMED THE PLACE I LOVE INTO A TESTING GROUND FOR THEIR LIBERAL IDEOLOGY. MAKE SURE IT DOESN'T HAPPEN IN YOUR STATE NEXT! — MICHELLE MALKIN

 

Those who don’t agree with the Progressive agenda being passed from the liberal state Capital are targeted and harassed. Most troubling? “The Colorado Model” is being replicated. It may be coming to a state near you. It all started with four wealthy liberals who pulled off one of the greatest political make-overs in recent history. The Rocky Mountain Heist.
