In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father—a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man—has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey—first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother’s family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father’s life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance. Pictured in lefthand photograph on cover: Habiba Akumu Hussein and Barack Obama, Sr. (President Obama's paternal grandmother and his father as a young boy). Pictured in righthand photograph on cover: Stanley Dunham and Ann Dunham (President Obama's maternal grandfather and his mother as a young girl). From the Trade Paperback edition.

WHO IS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA? 2008, the left wing and the Corporate Mainstream Media (CMM) fell head over heels in love with a cool, charming, and attractive smooth talker. His social security number (one of several, incidentally) identified him as Barack Hussein Obama. Over the next four years, he would repeatedly lie to, cheat on, and deceive his liberal lovers as they closed their eyes and ears to the truth, refusing to recognize the shameless, deviously calculated, and treacherous propaganda seeping from the White House. GOD HELP AMERICA, IT’S TIME FOR A SEPARATION. In The Secret Life of Barack Hussein Obama, uncompromising journalist and political commentator Mondo Frazier raises unsettling questions about the man elected to the highest position in this country. Frazier takes what he calls The Obama Narrative™, the crowd-pleasing myths perpetrated by Team Obama and the CMM to market and sell their Messianic savior, and fearlessly rips it to shreds. He explores the many mysteries of Obama’s past, including his ever-shifting religious affiliations and political leanings, the facts of his mother’s background, and Obama’s suspiciously “missing” laundry list of records and licenses—including college, marriage, medical, and many, many more. He lays out the facts regarding Obama’s shady associations with such negligible headliners as the controversial Reverend Jeremiah Wright, ACORN, and former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers—and Obama’s actual relationships with those who stumbled into his creepy inner circle. He sheds light on Obama’s personal “Hate List,” and the man’s dark deceptions, broken promises, and the hypocrisies of his current administration. Frazier also reveals four years of Obama’s outrageous, egregious, sometimes hilarious, and always very telling public gaffes that the CMM conveniently and deliberately chose to ignore. SO, WHO IS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA? Anyone with guts who tries to answer that question truthfully risks being routinely disparaged and condemned by the CMM as a Nazi, a racist, or a crazy conspiracy theorist. Mondo Frazier courageously turns a blind eye to those foolish generalizations to provide scrupulously researched, eye-opening answers in The Secret Life of Barack Hussein Obama. Frankly, they will astonish readers. And they serve as warnings of Obama’s insidious and sinister ambitions, ones that should be faced now so as to move America away from the “Barackalypse” and toward a future that is safer, genuinely righteous, and one-hundred-percent Obama-free. WELCOME TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S AMERICA Trillion-dollar-plus deficits every year; Social Security out of money years before the “experts” predicted; millions of houses lost in an automated robo-foreclosure system; billions for cronies who traffic in make-believe jobs “saved or created;” real jobs that disappeared, some never to return; food and energy prices on the rise; the IRS empowered to ensure that every American has approved health insurance; crackdowns on Internet freedoms; a war against contrary thought; billions of dollars to help Brazilian and Chinese energy companies while the extraction and production of American-based energy is stifled—and the list goes on. Every speech delivered by Barack Obama is still his “greatest speech ever!” in the reports of a drooling Corporate Mainstream Media (CMM). An ever-skeptical public hasn’t been convinced and are tuning out the constant drone of the CMM noise machine. Life is lived not in the pages or sets of the CMM, but out in the real-world America that has resulted from the policies and rhetoric of Barack Obama and his administration. The Barackalypse is already upon us.

Before the White House and Air Force One, before the TV ads and the enormous rallies, there was the real Barack Obama: a man wrestling with the momentous decision to run for the presidency, feeling torn about leaving behind a young family, and figuring out how to win the biggest prize in politics. This book is the previously untold and epic story of how a political newcomer with no money and an alien name grew into the world’s most powerful leader. But it is also a uniquely intimate portrait of the person behind the iconic posters and the Secret Service code name Renegade. Drawing on a dozen unplugged interviews with the candidate and president, as well as twenty-one months covering his campaign as it traveled from coast to coast, Richard Wolffe answers the simple yet enduring question about Barack Obama: Who is he? Based on Wolffe’s unprecedented access to Obama, Renegade reveals the making of a president, both on the campaign trail and before he ran for high office. It explains how the politician who emerged in an extraordinary election learned the personal and political skills to succeed during his youth and early career. With cool self-discipline, calculated risk taking, and simple storytelling, Obama developed the strategies he would need to survive the onslaught of the Clintons and John McCain, and build a multimillion-dollar machine to win a historic contest. In Renegade, Richard Wolffe shares with us his front-row seat at Obama’s announcement to run for president on a frigid day in Springfield, and his victory speech on a warm night in Chicago. We fly on the candidate’s plane and ride in his bus on an odyssey across a country in crisis; stand next to him at a bar on the night he secures the nomination; and are backstage as he delivers his convention speech to a stadium crowd and a transfixed national audience. From a teacher’s office in Iowa to the Oval Office in Washington, we see and hear Barack Obama with an immediacy and honesty never witnessed before. Renegade provides not only an account of Obama’s triumphs, but also examines his many personal and political trials. We see Obama wrestling with race and politics, as well as his former pastor Reverend Jeremiah Wright. We see him struggling with life as a presidential candidate, a campaign that falters for most of its first year, and his reaction to a surprise defeat in the New Hampshire primary. And we see him relying on his personal experience, as well as meticulous polling, to pass the presidential test in foreign and economic affairs. Renegade is an essential guide to understanding President Barack Obama and his trusted inner circle of aides and friends. It is also a riveting and enlightening first draft of history and political psychology. From the Hardcover edition.

With the Bush administration in permanent crisis, a renowned Washington psychoanalyst updates his portrait of George W.'s public persona—and how it has damaged the presidency. Insightful and accessible, courageous and controversial, Bush on the Couch sheds startling new light on George W. Bush's psyche and its impact on the way he governs, tackling head-on the question few seem willing to ask: Is our president psychologically fit to run the country?

Frank traces the development of Bush's character from childhood through his presidency, identifying and analyzing his patterns of thought, action, and communication. The result is a troubling portrait filled with important revelations about our nation's leader—including disturbing new insights into: How Bush reacted to the 2006 Democratic sweep in Congress with a new surge of troops into Iraq His telling habits and coping strategies—from his persistent mangling of English to his tendency to "go blank" in the midst of crisis The tearful public breakdown of his father, George H. W. Bush, and what it says about the former president's relationship to his prominent sons The debacle of Katrina—the moment when Bush's arrogance finally failed him With a new introduction and afterword, Bush on the Couch offers the most thorough and candid portrait to date of arguably the most psychologically damaged president since Nixon.
