From Donna Brazile, former DNC chair and legendary political operative, an explosive and revealing new look at the 2016 election: the first insider account of the Russian hacking of the DNC and the missteps by the Clinton campaign and Obama administration that enabled a Trump victory. In the fallout of the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee - and as chaos threatened to consume the party's convention - Democrats turned to a familiar figure to right the ship: Donna Brazile. Known to millions from her frequent TV appearances, she was no stranger to high stakes and dirty opponents, and the longtime Democratic strategist had a reputation in Washington as a one-stop shop for fixing sticky problems. What Brazile found at the DNC was unlike anything she had experienced before - and much worse than is commonly known. The party was beset by infighting, scandal, and hubris while reeling from a brazen and wholly unprecedented attempt by a foreign power to influence the presidential election. Plus, its candidate, Hillary Clinton, faced an opponent who broke every rule in the political playbook. Packed with never-before-reported revelations about what went down in 2016, Hacks is equal parts campaign thriller, memoir, and road map for the future. With Democrats now in the wilderness after this historic defeat, Hacks argues that staying silent about what went wrong helps no one. Only by laying bare the missteps, miscalculations, and crimes of 2016, Brazile contends, will Americans be able to salvage their democracy. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Donna Brazile.

Claire McCaskill reads her unapologetic memoir of how she went from Missouri mom to become the state's first female senator by embracing her ambition, surviving sexists' slings, outsmarting her enemies, and finding joy along the way. Claire McCaskill grew up in a political family but not at a time that welcomed women with big plans. She earned a law degree and paid her way through school by working as a waitress. By 1982 Claire had set her sights on the Missouri House of Representatives. Typically, one voter whose door she knocked on said: "You're too young; your hair is too long; you're a girl.... Go find yourself a husband." That door was slammed in her face, but Claire always kept pushing - first as a prosecutor of arsonists and rapists and then all the way to the door of a cabal of Missouri politicians that had secret meetings to block her legislation. In this candid, lively, and forthright memoir, Senator McCaskill describes her uphill battle to become who she is today, from her failed first marriage to a Kansas City car dealer - the father of her three children - to her current relationship with a Missouri businessman, whom she describes as "a life partner". She reveals every aspect of her ups and downs with Bill and Hillary Clinton and her decision to endorse Barack Obama's candidacy. It was her daughter, Maddie, who put Claire on the spot at a time when Claire wasn't sure what to do. From the day she was elected homecoming queen in high school to her long-shot reelection as senator after secretly helping to nominate a right-wing extremist as her opponent, Claire has loved politics and winning. Her memoir is unconventional: unsparing in its honesty, full of sharp humor and practical wisdom, and rousing in its defense of female ambition. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Claire McCaskill.

So many people were sure that Donald John Trump’s participation in the 2016 presidential election was just a publicity stunt, a joke, an effort to gain attention. Many were certain that surely this man, who has no experience in politics, wouldn’t follow through and pursue the country’s highest political office. Donald Trump had an exciting campaign for the presidency: from his investigation and instigating of opponent Hillary Clinton to his seemingly never-ending promises for success after the election. In Trump Revealed: A Great President? we will first offer a short biography of who the 45th president of the United States is, followed by facts about his presidential campaign trail, Trump’s goals for the 45th presidency, the election results of the 2016 presidential election, and what was accomplished during Donald Trump’s first year in office as the United States of America’s 45th President. Trump Revealed: A Great President? evaluates the Trump presidency from the announcement of his candidacy to October 2017 (almost through to the end of the first year of his presidency). Including quotes and tweets from President Donald Trump, while taking a neutral standpoint to clearly display a brief biography of Donald Trump and his political goals, the information contained within this audiobook leaves it up for you to decide the following: Is Donald J. Trump truly working for the American people or just working towards benefiting his own personal legacy? Is Donald Trump taking the presidency seriously, or is this position of power the result of a publicity stunt gone too far? What was Donald Trump trying to prove on the campaign trail? What is he trying to achieve in office? Has he achieved some of his goals while holding office as the 45th president of the United States of America? And lastly, is Donald Trump really doing as he promised and making America great again? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Glynn Amburgey.

Haunted by a life of violence and as proficient with languages as she is with knives, Vanessa Michael Munroe, chameleon and hunter, has built her life on a reputation for getting things done - dangerous and often not-quite-legal things. Born to missionary parents in lawless Africa, taken under the tutelage of gunrunners, and tortured by one of the jungle’s most brutal men, Munroe was forced to do whatever it took to stay alive. The ability to survive, fight, adapt, and blend has since taken her across the globe on behalf of corporations, heads of state, and the few private clients who can afford her unique brand of expertise, and these abilities have made her enemies. On a busy Dallas street, Munroe is kidnapped by an unseen opponent and thrust into an underground world where women and girls are merchandise and a shadowy figure known as The Doll Maker controls her every move. While trusted friends race to unravel where she is and why she was taken, everything pivots on one simple choice: Munroe must use her unique set of skills to deliver a high-profile young woman into the same nightmare that she once endured, or condemn to torture and certain death the one person she loves above all else. Driven by the violence that has made her what she is, cut off from help, and with attempts to escape predicted and prevented, Munroe will hunt for openings, for solutions, and a way to strike back at a man who holds all the cards. Because only one thing is certain: She cannot save everyone. In this high-octane thriller for fans of Lee Child, Stieg Larsson, and Robert Ludlum's Bourne trilogy, Vanessa Michael Munroe will have to fight fast, smart, and furiously to overcome a dangerous nemesis and deliver her trademark brand of justice. 1.

The diplomatic relations between United States of America and Germany go back more than two hundred years, when the then Kingdom of Prussia and United States of America came to an agreement over trade and peace on September 18th, 1785. Subsequently, after the formation of unified German empire in 1871, the two nations have had a mixed relationship, being on opposite sides in both world wars but maintaining trade and exchange of knowledge, technology, students and goodwill before and after the world wars. In recent history, after the reunification of Germany in 1990, United States of America has been one of the closest ally of Germany. However, this transatlantic relationship threatened to change after Donald Trump announced his candidancy for 2016 US presidential elections. The full exchange of his statements with German chancellor Angela Merkel will be presented later in this chapter, but as early as October 2015, Donald Trump had started attacking German leader. His full quote of "I always thought Merkel was this great leader. What she's done in Germany is insane" was followed by comparing German chancellor to his opponent Hillary Clinton.

Winning the Democratic primaries and the presidency in 2008 made Barack Obama not only the President of the United States. It turned the charismatic politician, who had been rated as an outsider from the beginning, into a figure with star status. But above all it meant a revolution of campaigning in America and the rise of a new and unprecedented kind of grassroots mobilization. This book describes the major reasons for the victory over Obama's main opponent in the primaries, Hillary Clinton. Which strategies and campaign methods enabled the Senator of Illinois to defeat established members of the Democratic Party? In how far were gender and race of significance? Ultimately the book also strives to analyze the development of the primaries from the early stages up to Super Tuesday and the end of the pimary phase at the beginning of June.
