Recent years have seen an explosion of interest in and interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. Its authority and stature are routinely invoked by voices from every point on the political spectrum, with frequent references to the Founding Fathers and their true ´´intent.´´ What really was their true intent? As these 12 surprising lectures show, many of those Founding Fathers - including Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry - were highly critical of the new Constitution and staunchly opposed it when it was first put forth for ratification by the states as a replacement for the Articles of Confederation. The debate over the Constitution raged for the better part of two years, and beneath its rhetorical flourishes lay not only the longest and most profound civic argument in our nation´s history, but also a civics lesson that deserves to endure for all time. It was an argument that would result not only in the ratification of the Constitution, but also in what that Constitution would become. Professor Pangle takes you into this debate. You´ll see which Founders opposed the new Constitution, which Founders led the battle for it, and how both sides helped define the result. In an era when contemporary arguments on the national stage so often mirror the same conflicts debated by the Founders, our own reenactment of that original debate can enrich our ability to be active and participating citizens.

Thomas Jefferson praised Tom Paine as the greatest political writer of the age. The author of Common Sense and Rights of Man, Paine helped make revolutions in America and France. But beyond his inspiring calls to action, Paine harbored a deeper political vision for his adopted country. It was embodied in an architectural project that he spent decades planning: an iron bridge to span the Schuylkill River at Philadelphia. The bridge was Paine´s answer to the political puzzle of the new nation: how to sustain a republic as large and geographically fragmented as the United States. Among its patrons were other giants of the time, including Benjamin Franklin and Edmund Burke, Paine´s ideological opponent. Set against the background of the American Revolution, the story of his iron bridge reveals a new Tom Paine and connects this revolutionary to the vast program of internal improvements that soon transformed America. 1.

Explore the fascinating life of Alexander Hamilton! Alexander Hamilton is one of the most extraordinary figures in American history. A deep thinker, a military leader, and a political dynamo, he was George Washington´s right-hand man and perhaps the most important figure in the shaping of the Constitution. His policies and practices in government set the United States down a path of commercial wealth and economic stability. His ideas still resonate in the powerful nation he helped create. During his time, Hamilton was a divisive figure. A political extremist who antagonized the conservative parts of the new republic while protecting its former opponents. The man at the heart of the nation´s first major sex scandal. A political operator whose actions outraged opponents and eventually led to the duel that cost him his life. It was an extraordinary life, made more extraordinary by Hamilton´s origins. He was an outsider, an immigrant from the Caribbean who arrived in New York to make a new life for himself. In doing so, he helped to shape the framework of politics and commerce in America. In retrospect, the amazing thing about his fame is not its recent resurgence, but that it took so long for him to be widely recognized. This audiobook tells the story of Alexander Hamilton. The story of a nation born in blood, in struggle, and in the dynamism that immigrants could bring. This audioook includes captivating stories and facts about Alexander Hamilton´s: Caribbean childhood Education and quest for finding work Military career First steps in politics Part in the 1796 election campaign Time in public office Life after the treasury Affair with Maria Reynolds Listen to this audiobook now to learn more about Alexander Hamilton! 1.

Hillary Clinton’s surprising defeat in the 2008 Democratic primary brought her to the nadir of her political career, vanquished by a much younger opponent whose message of change and cutting-edge tech team ran circles around her stodgy campaign. And yet, six years later, she has reemerged as an even more powerful and influential figure, a formidable stateswoman and the presumed front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, marking one of the great political comebacks in history. The story of Hillary’s phoenixlike rise is at the heart of HRC, a riveting political biography that journeys into the heart of ´´Hillaryland” to discover a brilliant strategist at work. Masterfully unfolded by Politico’s Jonathan Allen and The Hill’s Amie Parnes from more than two hundred top-access interviews with Hillary’s intimates, colleagues, supporters, and enemies, HRC portrays a seasoned operator who negotiates political and diplomatic worlds with equal savvy. Loathed by the Obama team in the wake of the primary, Hillary worked to become the president’s greatest ally, their fates intertwined in the work of reestablishing America on the world stage. HRC puts readers in the room with Hillary during the most intense and pivotal moments of this era, as she mulls the president-elect’s offer to join the administration, pulls the strings to build a coalition for his war against Libya, and scrambles to deal with the fallout from the terrible events in Benghazi - all while keeping one eye focused on 2016. HRC offers a rare look inside the merciless Clinton political machine, as Bill Clinton handled the messy business of avenging Hillary’s primary loss while she tried to remain above the partisan fray. Exploring her friendships and alliances with Robert Gates, David Petraeus, Leon Panetta, Joe Biden, and the president himself, Allen and Parnes show how Hillary fundamentally transformed the State ... 1.

International attention has been drawn over the past few months to the activities of ISIS, the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria. The entire world has been taken by surprise as they have witnessed the flagrant violation of all forms of human decency by these militants without their even considering the smallest fragment of human nature. It was only with impotent fury and despair that people across the globe could watch the brutal beheadings of innocent human beings by these radical Islamists. ISIS wants to bring the entire Middle East under their control, with Islamic Sharia law imposed everywhere. With this as their motive, they have been carrying out brutal attacks on their opposition. Simultaneously with their merciless and savage attacks and beheadings of their captives, they have made it a practice to release videos of every murder and every killing to the international media. Several hundred opponents have been executed by these ruthless and highly lethal terrorists. Some international journalists, aid workers, and the like have also been either beheaded by a knife or killed in a gruesome murder. This edition of Burning Reports will bring out the origin and growth of yet another terrorist organization (though they call themselves a state), namely ISIS, with roots in the volatile and petro-dollar-rich Middle East. 1.
