Publisher's Summary

What do the Democratic Party and a gang of criminals have in common? Funny you should ask!

In the fall of 2014, outspoken pundit, author, and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza found himself hauled into federal court for improperly donating money to a friend who was running for the Senate. D'Souza pleaded guilty, apologized for his offense, and was sentenced to eight months in a state-run confinement center near his home in San Diego. In the facility, he lived among hardened criminals - drug dealers, thieves, gangbangers, rapists, and murderers. Now, in this timely, fresh, provocative, and entertaining audiobook, the best-selling author explains how this experience not only changed his life but fundamentally transformed his perception of his adopted country.

Previously, D'Souza had seen America through the eyes of a grateful immigrant who came here as a student and became successful by applying and defending conservative principles. Again and again D'Souza made the case that America is an exceptional nation, fundamentally fair and just. But his prolonged exposure to the criminal underclass provided an eye-opening education in American realities. In the view of hardened criminals, America is anything but fair and just. Instead it is a jungle in which various armed gangs face off against one another, with the biggest and most powerful gangs inhabiting the federal government.

Applying this hardboiled perspective to American politics, D'Souza saw that America is becoming less exceedingly exceptional every day. Indeed, it is in danger of becoming just like India and other corrupt third world nations, run by gangs of kleptocrats. As for American liberalism, it is not a movement of ideas at all; it is but a series of scams and cons aimed at nothing less than stealing the wealth of the American people.

With biting wit and literary brio, D'Souza describes these liberal cons and the rationales and methods used to justify and execute them.

Is it already too late?

Like a frog in a pot of water, it doesn't realize its demise until the water starts to boil and its trapped. Has this happened to America? D'Souza's book dramatically explains step by step clear examples, how the progressive have been plotting and are succeeding to transform America, to steal power and wealth from its own country. Let's hope it's not too late to reverse the damaging policies crippling America. The millenium generation needs to wake up and lead the revolution to return America to the principles and values of its founders. Every American must read this.

Eye & Mind Opening

What did you love best about Stealing America?

The comparison between the convicted felons and the illustration of how that world operates and the operation of the world of Progressive Politics was incredible. The two worlds run such parallel lives; one in the open for the public to see, and one in the shadows. It is unfortunate, though, that the world of Progressive Politics is an illusion of fairness and equality, when in reality it is a con of thievery and lies.

A classic case of turning lemon into lemonade.

Nothing like abuse of power to motivate a well articulated scholar to analyze and pick out the true scheme behind the theft of our prosperity!
Thank you for an ever enlightening look into these thieves!

Excellent book - I couldn't put it down!

I loved how this book exposed the lies of the progressives in the media, in academia and in politics. So much of the craziness happening right now in the culture can be traced back to the schemes these people are pulling on all of us, and we - even those on the left fooled by the pitch - are getting stolen from. Thank you Dinesh - I hope you never stop exposing these schemes!

Unmasking the con-exposing the lie and liars in Progressive America

In his book "Stealing America" Dinesh D'Souza exposes the lies that progressives tell to further their ultimate goal: the theft of America. In a clear and concise fashion D'Souza explains the guiding philosophy behind progressives' actions. In particular, the actions of two of the most infamous and influential progressives, namely Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are chronicled. If Republicans, especially conservative Republicans, were aware of the philosophy and common tactics employed by progressives, progressive's plans would be thwarted at their earliest stages. Knowing or at the very least understanding progressive motives makes one less likely to fall for the conman's pitch and supports efforts to replace progressive mainstays such as Obama Care. Ultimately turning the tide of progressive indoctrination of young people at colleges and universities begins with an education of just what they have been taught (progressive ideology) and how in the long run that ideology threatens their very freedom.

AWESOME READ... VERY EYE OPENING

If you could sum up Stealing America in three words, what would they be?

Now I see the light...

What did you like best about this story?

I like the fact he tells his story and exposes the "judge" in his case

Any additional comments?

Listen to this book, and to Progressives I know this will be painful for you to listen to, but please give it a try you may just learn something.

A must read for every American citizen

It was so refreshing to know that people like Dinesh still exist. We are losing America at a rapid rate right now and Dinesh makes an overwhelming case to support this statement in his book. I just hope we're not too late to save her.

Great!

D'Souza has hit this one out of the park! Love the candidness and his Debbie Downer sense of humor. Even though this stuff is not funny, you have to laugh about it sometimes.

Unbelievable account of the plot by the Left

This is truly a detailed blueprint of the progressive left wing and their attempt to hijack our country. It is the equivalent of a magician having all of his tricks revealed to an unsuspecting public. When it is all over it will make perfect sense. You will stop questioning the motives and the reasons behind many of the head scratching moves that the Obama administration has perpetrated. It will make perfect sense. Once you realize what the grand plan is a lot of the minor details will start to fall into their proper place. It is sad. It is chilling. And I guarantee that if you have the same feeling of helplessness that I had when I finish this book then you know exactly how effective it accurate it was. Unfortunately the people to whom this book would probably help (the actual sheep that are being led astray by Hillary and Barack Obama) Will never read this and they will never buy into the theory that they are the ones that are being manipulated. Probably for two reasons. First, no one wants to admit to being that stupid. Secondly, to turn against Hillary and Obama would mean that you were upsetting your own apple cart and that would mean that you would actually have to start working for a living as opposed to excepting the handouts you receive an exchange for the votes you give. This is the pathetic state of the world and our country today.

Disappointing, in comparison to the film version.

Having seen and enjoyed the film, I was keen to read the book. Unfortunately, despite a good start, the author keeps telling the reader what the book is going to tell the reader, rather than actually telling them. This smacks of "filler" to me, as though a fairly short story has been padded out. Goes rapidly downhill after Andrew Klavin takes over the reading.
