America's Dreyus Nixon's Case to Trump's Present Scenario

America's Dreyfus written by Bestselling Author Joan Brady author of the Theory of War writes on the trial of the century during the Nixon years. Similar to incumbent Donald Trump, Richard Nixon also had a single aim in life, "Win".
In 2016 this book had so many reviews about the real story of Alger Hiss. Joan Brady believes that Hiss was innocent but thinks, as did many of his friends at the time, that he was suicidally naive about what he faced. Chambers had appeared before HUAC in 1948 and, in the fashion of the day, had produced a list of alleged communists in government service.
The main summary of this book is that it is about the dirty tricks employed by Richard Nixon and his allies in the late 1940s and early 1950s to secure the conviction of Alger Hiss, a former government official, on a trumped-up charge of perjury. 
Thus, the start of the discussion on the statements of conversations could have been taped, was just a strategy to ensure the loyalty of Former FBI …

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails



Touching on Hillary's campaign rift with the Democratic party and talking about the reluctance of supporters of Bernie Sanders in supporting Clinton as front runner sort of explained initially why people then thought they had a flawed presidential candidate.



The book discusses on Clinton's winning the popular vote yet was not really successful in getting a lot of Senator Sanders supporters. Although Sec. Clinton's campaign staff are her deep loyalist, she spent enormous amounts of time asking existential questions to them.



Yet in summary although the book centers around on the ultimate failure of Hillary, the problematic circumstances and fiasco has nothing to do with her.

Shattered, a new bestselling book on the failed Campaign of Hillary Rodham Clinton, discusses a lot of angles detrimental to the her losing the Presidential elections. It also centers around bottom line to herself as the prime reason she lost the 2016 elections.
Part of it was micro-managing on campaign strategist, data analytics, her continuous quest to find the reasons behind her lost way back in 2008 as the standard bearer of the Democratic party which got Obama got elected.

America's Global Environment Crisis or Not, Is it really important

Wikipedia on climate change says, "The United States is the second largest emitter, after China, of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels. The energy policy of the United States is widely debated; many call on the country to take a leading role in fighting global warming.


Red Sky at Morning by James Gustavo Speth is a great read about this topic.
 James writes, "Pollution.Pollutants of many varieties threaten biodiversity. Toxic substances; oxygen-demanding wastes; nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and  phosphorous overfertilization; acidification; and photochemical oxidants (ozone) all degrade the structure and functioning of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems."


In the US alone the Gulf of Mexico is toxic with oil, we’ve caused earthquakes in the midwest when Fracking for natural gas, and 
we’ve blasted the tops off mountains in Virginia looking for coal.
When we turn non-renewable resources into energy we’re releasing toxic gases into the atmosphere, driving climate change …

Such boost as economists' stated would have not made an impact if Hillary Clinton had won as the markets transcends Clinton was a carry over of the Obama policies.
