- “Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Progressive Elite,’’ by Peter Schweizer (Harper) In this explosive new exposé, investigative reporter Schweizer, author of “Clinton Cash,” zeroes in on the nation’s top progressives — politicians who strive to acquire more government power to achieve their political ends. He bares the sweetheart deals and legislative slights-of-hand of such names as Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown, Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar. (Non-fiction)
- “America's Expiration Date: The Fall of Empires and Superpowers . . . and the Future of the United States,” by Cal Thomas (Zondervan) Arguing that American culture is increasingly immoral, the nationally syndicated columnist and broadcaster offers a diagnosis of what exactly is wrong with the United States by drawing parallels to once-great empires and nations that declined into oblivion. Citing the historically proven 250-year pattern of how superpowers rise and fall, he predicts that America's expiration date is just around the corner and shows us how to escape their fate. (Non-fiction)
- “The Liberal Invasion of Red State America,” by Kristin B. Tate (Regnery) Libertarian journalist Kristin Tate traces the progressive flight from blue cities to red towns across America, revealing a nation undergoing a significant transition. She argues that as progressive, upper-middle class urbanites desert expensive liberal meccas like New York and San Francisco for traditionally "red" states like Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Texas, the result is a sudden, confusing purpling of small town America with school boards and local governments being reorganized around the progressive agendas of pushy transplants. (Non-fiction)
- “The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties,” by Christopher Caldwell (Simon & Schuster) Caldwell, former senior editor at the Weekly Standard, makes the case that the liberal reforms of the 1960s, intended to make the nation more just and humane, instead left many Americans feeling alienated, despised, misled—and ready to put an adventurer in the White House. And he describes how even the reforms that Americans love best have come with costs that are staggeringly high—in wealth, freedom, and social stability. (Non-fiction)
- “Sandworm: A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin's Most Dangerous Hackers,” by Andy Greenberg (Doubleday) The true story of the most devastating cyberattack in history and hunt to identify and track the Russian hackers behind it. Greenberg, a senior writer at Wired, details describes the mysterious series of cyberattacks against American utility companies, NATO, and electric grids in Eastern Europe, which began in 2014 and culminated in the summer of 2017. That’s when the malware known as NotPetya was unleashed, penetrating, disrupting, and paralyzing some of the world's largest businesses — from drug manufacturers to software developers to shipping companies. And those hackers, a group known as Sandworm, remain an ongoing threat to our national security and stability, Greenberg argues. (Non-fiction)
