In the tradition of Theodore White’s landmark books, the definitive look at how Donald J. Trump shocked the world to become president From Roger Stone, a New York Times bestselling author, longtime political adviser and friend to Donald Trump, and consummate Republican strategist, comes the first in-depth examination of how Trump’s campaign tapped into the national mood to deliver a stunning victory that almost no one saw coming. In the early hours of November 9, 2016, one of the most contentious, polarizing, and vicious presidential races came to an abrupt and unexpected end when heavily favored presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton called Donald J. Trump to concede, shocking a nation that had, only hours before, given little credence to his chances. Donald Trump pulled the greatest upset in American political history despite a torrent of invective and dismissal of the mainstream media. Stone, a long time Trump retainer and confidant, gives us the inside story of how Donald Trump almost single-handedly harnessed discontent among “Forgotten Americans” despite running a guerrilla-style grass roots campaign to compete with the smooth running and free-spending Clinton political machine. From the start, Trump’s campaign was unlike any seen on the national stage—combative, maverick, and fearless. Trump’s nomination was the hostile takeover of the Republican party and a resounding repudiation of the failed leadership of both parties whose policies have brought America to the brink of financial collapse as well as endangering our national security. Here Stone outlines how Donald Trump skillfully ran as the anti-Open Borders candidate as well as a supporter of American sovereignty, and how he used the Globalist trade deals like NAFTA to win over three of ten Bernie Sanders supporters. The veteran adviser to Nixon, Reagan, and Trump charts the rise of the alt-conservative media and the end of the mainstream media monopoly on voter impacting information dissemination. This is an insider’s view that includes studying opposition research into Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton’s crimes, and the struggle by the Republican establishment to stop Trump and how they underestimated him. Stone chronicles Trump’s triumph in three debates where he skillfully lowered expectation levels but skewered Mrs. Clinton for the corruption of the Clinton Foundation, her mishandling of government email, and her incompetence as Secretary of State. Stone gives us the inside word on Julian Assange, Wikileaks, Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, Carlos Danger, Doug Band, Jeffery Epstein, and the efforts to hide the former first lady’s infirmities and health problems. Stone dissects the phony narrative that Trump was in cahoots with Russian strongman Vladimir Putin or that the e-mails released by Wikileaks came from the Russians. The Making of the President 2016 reveals how Trump brilliantly picked at Hillary Clinton’s weaknesses, particularly her reputation as a crooked insider, and ignited the passions of out-of-work white men and women from the rust belt and beyond, at a time when millions of Americans desperately wanted change. Stone also reveals how and why the mainstream media got it wrong, including how the polls were loaded and completely misunderstood who would vote. Stone's analysis is akin to Theodore H. White’s seminal book The Making of the President 1960. It is both a sweeping analysis of the trends that elected Trump as well as the war stories of a hard-bitten political survivor who Donald Trump called “one tough cookie."

Decisions about our families, our business, our futures. We are accountable for making decision, big and small, the cast the paths of our lives. So why do we spend so much time finger-pointing and blaming others? Mark Samuel is a master of accountability. In his book, teaches us how to go from victim to accountable and how to actually do what we say we are going to do. Taking ownership of the power of personal choice, regardless of the obstacles, means not only walking the talk but knowing what talk you are going to walk. Faced with fear of blame, fear of failure and fear of success, Samuel provides inspiration and strategy for impacting the world by achieving your goals. One of Samuel's main arguments in owning accountability is recognizing your current reality. He challenges readers to embrace certain "tools" that can place us in the right frame of mind to accept responsibility and accomplish all of our set goals both individually and as team members including: ·Compassion: in taking accountability, also creating solutions that consider the welfare of all parties involved and for the entire organization in general. ·Openness: let each member of the team, regardless of rank, have a chance to speak up and share their perspective in problem-solving ·Sincerity: acknowledge the current reality with honesty yet without judgment. Call it what it is without criticizing at this stage From identifying the common roadblocks to accountability to focusing on the factor of forgiveness in taking responsibility, Samuel shows readers how to effectively stop the cycle of victimhood and blaming and shows us how to engage in the "accountability loop," a process of pragmatic self-examination, recognition and owning, and action. Using examples from the worlds of business, sports, parables and his own life story, Samuel highly-praised accountability lessons are now available for anyone to learn from.

A lot has been written about the history, origin, and poetry of tango, but there are few examples of study material that can be applied to its direct dance practice. Therefore, in order to unify the experience and the teaching line he has been developing, and due to the need of organizing and providing the information the student needs to understand this dance, the author decided to write this essay. The aim of this material is to help people understand the body and how to prepare it so that Tango can find us in a more conscious and functional state. After all, Tango is a dance, and the dance is movement, and the movement, must be done in a conscious way to do it properly. Moreover, Tango should find us better prepared for the most important ingredient of this genre: “To be in an absolute harmony with the music and with the person with whom we are dancing”.

"There seems to be nothing wrong with you." Is there any other phrase that so unsatisfactorily concludes a visit to the doctor? Yet each day thousands of patients leave such encounters with these words to torment them. They did not feel like nothing was wrong. They wouldn't have sought help unless they thought their health was in peril. They have real symptoms. They know they are not imagining their complaints. Why do we feel and behave as we do? Dr. Donald W. Crowe has cared for thousands of such patients in a twenty-year practice of emergency medicine. He believes they are sick, and he believes they can be helped. They are being made ill by their own instincts. Fear, arising not just as anxiety but also hidden at the core of other feelings, controls them. Your Hidden Fear is Making You Sick explores the origins of fear and how this ancient instinct has grown beyond its role as protector. It explains the nature of the physical symptoms felt by those unknowingly dominated by fear-symptoms that have defied explanation by other disease states. It also explores the origins of harmful emotions and behaviors that disrupt well-being. Most importantly, it outlines a plan of action to treat fear-driven disease.

The author is a retired attorney who has spent a lifetime in Americas society peacefully resolving controversies his clients had with other persons and companies. Since retiring at the turn of the century, he, like many others, have observed a definite trend in Americas society toward violence. The causes for this unwanted trend are many and obvious but not the subject of this book. Instead this book was written as an awakening to the fact that this trend is leading us all down the road to a sick violent society and it is up to us all to oppose the trend with common sense. Some suggestions for taking a stand against this trend, highlighted in this book are (a) Lets encounter strangers as potential friends with a smile and not a sneer with one hand pressed against a concealed handgun; (b) Lets get rid of lethal handguns altogether and make them as unaccessible to the ordinary citizen as explosives; (c) As parents and grandparents, lets be careful what we teach our kids by word or example. For instance, hate being a word to avoid along with negative feelings toward others who are diff erent; (d) And most importantly, lets put a stop to all killings; in war zones abroad as a way to peace; and on our streets and highways here at home by speeding. And much more! The Author knows that if you follow the suggestions of his book you will not only feel and be safer, you will feel good about yourself and what you do.
