This is fantastic insight from a brilliant man. If I had my choice of dream dinner guests #1 would be Mark Steyn and #2 would be Dr. Hanson. VDH is a gift from God and I will cherish his written words till my dying day. Also, the opposition to Trump is extremely misguided and false and the facts laid out in this book prove it. If you care about facts above feelings please read this book.
In my life, of over 60 years I have read many hundreds of books. I would put this one in my top three. I mean it.
Why so good?
1. Dr Hanson is an intelligent, insightful and reflective academic. (There are fewer and fewer of those these days) This book draws on many sources of fact to comprehend and analyse. This make the subsequent synthesis and evaluation both authoritative and checkable.
2. The author draws on ancient history, literature and recent history to create a narrative that sets the striking improvements Trump has created and the evil he faces from the 'Swamp' in a clearly understandable manner.
3. Anyone interested in the necessity to have disrupters who challenge anti-democratic charlatans and cheats such as; the Obamas, Clintons, Bush, McCain, hard left media MSNBC, CBS, BBC, CNN, ITV .... et al and the now-communist-leaning US Democratic Party will get a more comprehensive understanding of how to bebunk their attacks on democracy.
This is a well balanced, well written authoritative account of why the free world needs a Donald J Trump.
(I also thoroughly recommend 'The Politics of Corruption' by Peter Schweizer. )
I am used to hear of how dangerous and crazy Trump is. Hanson offers a new perspective on this president. He sees him as a tool for the Republican party - a kind of tough guy vigilante like Dirty Harry who gets the job done. I am not totally convinced he is a good thing for USA but I got a more nuanced view on him after reading this book. The book is most entertaining when it describes the bad campaign the Hillary Clinton had and the hysterical and agressive reactions after Trump won the election. An interesting story. However, I think he wrote it to early. Hansen is a historian and he could have waited untli his presidency is over. I predict that "The case for Trump" soon will get old because everything is changing so fast.
In the same way we meet remainers who have never met a leaver and cannot understand why they might not come to the same obvious conclusion as they do; this is for those who cannot see the other side of the Trump debate. Either you assume half of the US population are stupid and racist (or "deplorable" as Clinton said) or there might be something you missed. This book was enlightening, but the writer is not a cheerleader for Trump. He makes no serious attempt to evaluate his motives or character, but simply to review his performance and appeal in contrast to his opponents.
Due to a severe lack of critical thinking and rational traditional journalistic analysis by the MSM on many subjects, individual research is unfortunately required.
If you're fed up of being told what you should believe about Donald J. Trump's presidency and would like to make up your own mind then read this book. You might be surprised what you find out. He ain't all bad ...
A truly objective account of why Trump won the US election and the revelation of the machinations of the Democratic party in the USA. Tells it as it is and the fact that the opposition to Donald Trump, should have remembered something I think one of their predecessors said. , " You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the times. We ll written even for the lay person. I don't say as an Englishman the way American politics work. However you do get the many facets of the cause for Trumps victory.
In American fact, fiction and folklore it takes a good/bad unconventional character to overcome the truly bad guys on behalf of the peaceful, god-fearing meek, put-upon majority. Other examples would be American revolutionaries, including eighteenth century settlers of Scots/Irish descent, maybe Ronald Reagan: nearer to home Churchill. Sadly when they had done all the dirty work they were rejected for their misdeeds by the very people they fought for. In my opinion Prof Hanson provide redress with a well researched, learned yet down to earth assessment of Donald Trump who really does not say the right things but actually does them unlike his predecessors who just talked the talk.
Trump was to me, what the MSM said about him, until BREXIT became the travesty it did. Then, some parallels started to emerge... You guessed; it the MSM here in the UK had decided I was a 'deplorable' and gradually I understood what was the 'swamp', what it's evil aims actually are, and that DJT is actually (like him or not) one of the few that stand in their way. This book really helps to catch up people like me that are suddenly enlightened to the scale and risks of the war we are in for western freedom and democracy. The USA, leaders of the free world, are the front-line. All I can say now is ' GO TRUMP 2020'!! And this is Dec 16th - the fix is in and USA hangs in the balance...
I stopped watching the BBC and most other MSM output as soon as I realised that they are the shock troops of a global technocratic revolution. I'm sure most people (the vast majority) have no idea what is really going on. This book is an essential piece of the research needed by anyone wishing to understand the gravity of the situation facing western democracy.
