Publisher's Summary

Get an inside look at the detailed investigations of the United States Congress, the groundwork for Donald Trump’s win in 2016, and the events that occurred during his successful four years as president.

When I woke up on October 2, 2020, I figured it would be like most Fridays in DC. Congress would finish up the week with a few votes on the House Floor and then members would rush to Reagan National Airport to catch a flight home. Polly and I had a mid-afternoon flight; however, we weren’t headed home. We were going to Wisconsin to help a colleague raise funds and to attend the President’s rally in Green Bay.... As I started to put on my workout gear before heading to the House gym, I took a look at my phone. I noticed I had several text messages and missed phone calls from Russell Dye, the top media staffer for our personal office and for Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee. Some of the calls and messages were from after midnight.... I called him right away.

“What’s going on?” I asked.

He responded, “Sir, the president has the virus!”

I turned on the TV. It was the only story.... I had traveled to Cleveland with the president three days earlier - I knew I’d have to quarantine until I got tested. I’d been tested before the flight to Cleveland, but that wouldn’t matter now. I’d have to get a new test. No workout this morning, no flight to Wisconsin this afternoon.... First things first. I was scheduled for a Fox and Friends interview that morning in the eight o’clock hour. I grabbed a quick shower and then headed to the office to prep for the interview. We were supposed to discuss the election and how the president was doing in Ohio. But we knew the only topic would be the president contracting the virus.... An hour later I got tested in the House physician’s office.... On that drive home Polly and I talked about all that had transpired that morning. We talked about the president and first lady, and like millions of other Americans, we prayed for their health and for our country. Over the weekend I thought about that day - that one day - Friday, October 2, 2020: It was really a picture of the entire year. 2020 was about the virus and the presidential election. 2020 was all about politics.

Jim Jordan - Thank you!

Mr. Jordan I appreciate taking us through all the challenges you went through detailing not just the wins but the broken promises by the republicans and providing the reasons why. My son let me listen to this book and as I have (at a much later age then I care to admit) really been trying to educate myself on the workings of our government. Not only is this a very detailed accounting of the legislation you worked on but that you actually narrated the book. It is so clear to me the love of our country that you have. I could hear it in your voice the times you knew the Party let the country down with broken campaign promises. I could also hear the determination you had picking up the pieces and finding ways to move forward. The countless hours you put in preparing, researching and just fighting for the freedoms of our country and protecting those rights. I doubt you will read this review but hopefully the people that do read this book will have an insight to why with President Trump and I think even just as important having people like you, fighting the fight for freedom there was indeed more accomplished under his presidency then any other President in office, that really was for we The People of this great country. Thank you Mr. Jordan , although my bucket list is small , you have been added as a person I would consider it an honor to meet and as if that wouldn’t truly be an honor , having the opportunity to spend 24 hrs just to be an part of a true believer in our constitutional rights, well that would be a blessing. Oh I am sure many would disagree and say “ you can’t come up with better?” , but I am one of those probably lower middle class Americans, I don’t have a fascinating story to tell , I raised 4 children then my now ex moved on. But I am an American one of those you stand up and fight for days and hours preparing for, not because you have to but because after reading your book I honestly believe you want to.I am sure this will be forever on my bucket list but I can honestly say before reading your book, you would have just been another politician I recognized who was a Republican, but you are more , you are a person who truly is passionate about saving our country, for that I thank you! I hope readers will come to learn just what kind of person you are and realize this is a book about truth just how far the radical left is willing to go at the cost of our country!

Thank you again Mr. Jordan!

Will listen again

Jim Jordan is a template for the kind of people we need in government defending our freedoms. I trust him, and I believe he is in it for all the right reasons. I love watching him in action but even better hearing the back stories in this book. I was also very pleased he narrated. It makes such a difference, and he did an excellent job. I plan to listen to this one again, not something I do often.

Truth from an Honored Patriot

I feel privileged to get this great summary of history from Congressman Jim Jordan. It was tough during the time period he covered to keep everything straight. I always knew the Democrats were lying because their lips were moving, I just hope that they will be held accountable for their underhanded deeds in the future.

Highly recommend !

I can't recommend this book enough !
if I have one complaint, and I actually don't,
but I would love to be able to have this book be about twice as long as the very short 14 chapters that it is !
Congressman Jordan has given us a first hand account of a number of actual meetings with
President Trump !
A number of first hand experiences of how he and his staff create the extremely limited 5 very precious minutes of questioning , how to structure his questions, and which questions are critical to be asked !
I found the process quite fascinating !
To be quite honest, this book has left me hungry for the Congressman's next work !

You can't stop listening from start to finish!

I'm amazed at the inner workings of Congress. It has the same depth and dimensions of scandal as The Game of Thrones .....only on steroids.

It doesn’t matter what your political persuasion is this book in worth reading! An the author is an excellent narrator too! Great book!
