9780062196699: Screwed!: How Foreign Countries Are Ripping America Off and Plundering Our Economy-and How Our Leaders Help Them Do It

In this hard-hitting book, Dick Morris and Eileen McGann take on the next threat to America: globalism. Increasingly, political and corporate power elite encourage Americans to view themselves as citizens of the world. Unfortunately, this global imperative routinely supersedes our own domestic needs and has led to economic catastrophe, including the bankrupting of ordinary American families. And more suffering is coming, the authors warn. The globalist elite - experts who are trained in the top academies, their skills weaned on "Wall Street" and honed in government bureaucracy - believe they are destined to rule the new world. They want to tell us what to do, how to live, and how much we should earn. Meanwhile, political leaders won't stand up for their citizens' interests, choosing instead to throw away our prosperity, drive our companies into insolvency, and strangle us with regulations and taxes. Meanwhile, other nations focus on their own self-interest, free from the kind of environmental regulations and labor laws constraining American corporations. They chant anti-American slogans and fund terrorists while raking in our foreign aid. Meanwhile, global institutions encroach on our national sovereignty, usurping our decision-making on our own economy, energy, environment, land, and businesses. In "Screwed!" Morris and McGann examine the ways that nations and international organizations take advantage of us, detail the staggering scale of the great American ripoff, and reveal how our own leaders are complicit in the process.

Product Description:

America is being Screwed!, say Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, by China, Russia, the EU, and other nations with the help of our own political and business leaders. The co-authors of nine explosive New York Times bestsellers—including Revolt!, Catastrophe, Fleeced, Outrage, and 2010: Take Back America—Morris and McGann now expose a massive global scandal that affects the lives and livelihood of every American: the undeniable truth that foreign countries are ripping America off and plundering our economy. With the unemployment rate soaring and the economic picture growing bleaker by the hour, Screwed! is a necessary wake-up call for every concerned citizen, from middle class workers and Tea Party conservatives to labor leaders and environmentalists who oppose globalism and its negative economic and environmental repercussions.

From the Back Cover:

The bestselling authors return with a blistering exposť of how America is being ripped off by friends and enemies alike—with the help of our own ruling elites.

Our jobs go to China. Foreign aid goes to our enemies. Pakistan uses our money to fund terrorists who attack us. Saudi Arabia, which our soldiers have defended with their lives, funds 90 percent of the world's Islamic fundamentalism. The UN is awash in corruption; its bureaucrats steal the money we give it with total impunity. Fifteen hundred brave American soldiers have died defending the regime in Afghanistan—rated the second-most corrupt in the world! Meanwhile, European bankers and bureaucrats are taking over our economy and preempting our sovereignty.

How do they get away with it? By hiring our own political leaders, as soon as they leave office, to lobby for them to rip us off. Former House Democratic leader Dick Gephardt, for example, sits on the board of an American affiliate of a Chinese company that has been denied the right to operate in the United States because it steals our technology. Former House Republican Appropriations Committee chairman Bob Livingstone represented Libya until just before Gaddafi fell. And we have a president who willingly obliges countries that poach on our sovereignty, refusing to stand up for our interests and our jobs as they confiscate half the royalties from our offshore energy, subject our elected leaders to criminal prosecution if they go to war without UN approval, and tell us what kind of land-use policies we should pursue.

In Screwed!, bestselling authors Dick Morris and Eileen McGann lay bare the unvarnished facts as never before and suggest real, immediate, and specific steps to stop those who undermine our interests and take away our jobs. In the same vein as their previous crusading books—Catastrophe, Fleeced, and Outrage—Morris and McGann have documented, in great depth and detail, exactly how the United States is getting screwed, and how to stop it. They dig up the facts, name names, point fingers, and suggest concrete solutions—independent of partisan politics.
