Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets

Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets

A bombshell investigation reveals how Washington really works: politicians extort money from us, then use it to buy each other's votes. Best-selling author Peter Schweizer reveals: Obama's "Protection Money": How the Obama Administration targeted industries for criminal investigation but chose not to pursue key political donors. John Boehner's "Tollbooth": How the Speaker of the House extracts money by soliciting political donations before he will hold crucial votes on the House floor. The "Slush Fund": How politicians extract "campaign contributions" and then convert them to bankroll lavish lifestyles complete with limos, private jets, golf at five-star resorts, fine wines, and cash for family members. Capitol Hill's "Underground Economy": How congressmen use a little-known loophole that allows them to secretly link their votes to cash. Extortion finally makes clear why Congress is so dysfunctional: it's all about making money, not making law.

Nikolay Starikov 1917. Key to the Russian Revolution

Nikolay Starikov 1917. Key to the Russian Revolution

It wasn't by chance that the Russian Empire collapsed in 1917, and nor was it the case with the Soviet Union. In both cases a powerful external force initiated Russia's falling apart using villains and fools, who completely destroyed their own country for money and attractive promises.The history of this great catastrophe still holds many mysteries, and there are much more questions than answers here. Germany, which is still blamed for it, was not more than a tool and fell a victim to its own revolution afterwards. February 1917 - this is when the Russian catastrophe of the 20th century started, and we paid too high a price to overcome the damage. However, as soon as we forgot how Russia's geopolitical enemies had destroyed our country, disintegration and chaos came back. In both cases, this force hid behind the smokescreen of an "alliance" and "universal values". And now their conceptual descendants, sufficiently sponsored from abroad, are ready to provoke a new revolution in Russia.Read this book and learn:- why Nicholas II and his brother abdicated so easily;- who and how arranged Lenin's return to Russia in a "sealed" railway car;- why the British agent Oswald Rayner put a security round into Grigori Rasputin's forehead;- why the German General Staff never knew they had a spy by the name of Ulyanov;- why the Provision Government paid for the passage of revolutionaries, who were going to overthrow them;- why Alexander Kerensky didn't fight Bolsheviks but played a giveaway game with them and tried to hand the power to Lenin.- Kerensky = Gorbachev = Yeltsin = ...?Enough of this! There should be no more revolutions in Russia!
