On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America. The outspoken businessman, real estate developer, and television personality had previously declared some interest in becoming a candidate for public office in 2000 and 2012, but it wasn't until June 2015 that his political goals became clear. When he first announced his plan to become the Republican Party candidate for the 2016 presidential election, his chances of success were widely dismissed and often ridiculed by large numbers of Americans, including influential members of both the Republican and Democratic parties. Trump quickly took the lead ahead of the 16 other contenders for the Republican nomination and, by May 2016, it was obvious that he would be representing the party in the November 2016 election. While his success in winning the nomination had come as a surprise to many of his opponents and detractors, the results of the November 8th general election astonished millions of observers around the world as they came to realize that, with no previous government or military experience, Donald J. Trump had defeated the highly experienced Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. Trump's approach to both the nomination and election campaigns was unconventional and controversial. He ignored many traditional political strategies, routinely used insults and name-calling in dealing with his opponents, held dozens of sometimes raucous public rallies, and relied on Twitter as one of his primary means of communication. Promising to "make America great again", Trump spoke in opposition to free trade, climate change, and immigration, pledging that he would have a wall erected along the US-Mexico border and would make Mexico pay for it. 1.

Run for Something: A Real-Talk Guide to Fixing ...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the email marketing director of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the cofounder of Run for Something comes an essential and inspiring guide that encourages and educates young progressives to run for local office, complete with contributions from elected officials and political operatives. You've been depressed since the night of November 8, 2016. You wore black to work the next morning. You berated yourself for your complacency during the Obama years. You ranted on Twitter. You deleted Twitter. You sent emails to your friends saying, "How can we get more involved?" You listened to Pod Save America. You knitted a pussyhat. You showed up to the Women's March on Washington. You protested Donald Trump's executive orders. You called your congressman. You called other people's congressmen. You set up monthly donations to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. You reactivated Twitter (begrudgingly). Here's what you do next: Run for something. To be specific: Run for local office and become the change you want to see in the world. Forget about Congress. Forget about the Senate. Focus on the offices that get the real sh*t done: state legislatures, city councils, school boards, and mayors. It doesn't matter if you're not a white man over 60 with an Ivy League law degree. (In fact, it's better if you're not!) It doesn't matter if you don't understand the first thing about running for office, or never even imagined you would. That's what this book is for. Amanda Litman, experienced in hard-fought state and national election campaigns, is here to give you guidance as well as wisdom and insight from elected officials and political operatives she interviewed for this book. There are half a million elected officials in the United States. Why can't you be one of them? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Candace Thaxton, Roger Casey, Fred Sanders, Amanda Carlin.

Resistance Is Futile!: How the Trump-Hating Lef...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Since the day Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign, the left has waged a demented war against him. Liberals used to pride themselves on their ultra-hipness, but Trump has turned them into weeping little girls in pink party dresses. The very people who once mocked right-wingers for (allegedly) overreacting to every little thing are now the ones hyperventilating and hatching insane conspiracy theories.During the campaign, and even more so after his victory, the left went nuts. Everything Trump does sends them into a moral panic. Everything is a constitutional crisis.Members of the self-proclaimed "Resistance" - journalists, politicians, professors, judges, comedians, movie stars, Twitter pundits, even Oprah and Lindsey Vonn! - are literally shaking because Trump is literally Hitler!Now Ann Coulter skewers the various elements of "The Resistance" - the pussy-hat brigade, the Russian-collusion witch hunters, the media alarmists, the campus hysterics, and more. They talk about Russia? They're the ones meddling with our democracy by trying to overturn the results of the election with their relentless attacks.The biggest result of the Trump era may be our cultural institutions' total loss of credibility.  1.

The Know-It-Alls: The Rise of Silicon Valley as...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Beginning nearly a century ago and showcasing the role of Stanford University as the incubator of this new class of super geeks, Cohen shows how smart guys like Jeff Bezos, Peter Thiel, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, and Mark Zuckerberg fell in love with a radically individualistic ideal and then mainstreamed it. With these very rich men leading the way, unions, libraries, public schools, common courtesy, and even government itself have been pushed aside to make way for supposedly efficient market-based encounters via the Internet. Donald Trump's election victory was an inadvertent triumph of the "disruption" that Silicon Valley has been pushing: Facebook and Twitter, eager to entertain their users, turned a blind eye to the fake news and the hateful ideas proliferating there. The Rust Belt states that shifted to Trump are the ones being left behind by a "meritocratic" Silicon Valley ideology that promotes an economy where, in the words of LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, each of us is our own start-up. A society that belittles civility, empathy, and collaboration can easily be led astray. The Know-It-Alls explains how these self-proclaimed geniuses failed this most important test of democracy. 1.

Irrationality
24,76 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

It's a story we can't stop telling ourselves. Once, humans were benighted by superstition and irrationality, but then the Greeks invented reason. Later, the Enlightenment enshrined rationality as the supreme value. Discovering that reason is the defining feature of our species, we named ourselves the "rational animal." But is this flattering story itself rational? In this sweeping account of irrationality from antiquity to today--from the fifth-century BC murder of Hippasus for revealing the existence of irrational numbers to the rise of Twitter mobs and the election of Donald Trump--Justin Smith says the evidence suggests the opposite. From sex and music to religion and war, irrationality makes up the greater part of human life and history. Rich and ambitious, Irrationality ranges across philosophy, politics, and current events. Challenging conventional thinking about logic, natural reason, dreams, art and science, pseudoscience, the Enlightenment, the internet, jokes and lies, and death, the book shows how history reveals that any triumph of reason is temporary and reversible, and that rational schemes, notably including many from Silicon Valley, often result in their polar opposite. The problem is that the rational gives birth to the irrational and vice versa in an endless cycle, and any effort to permanently set things in order sooner or later ends in an explosion of unreason. Because of this, it is irrational to try to eliminate irrationality. For better or worse, it is an ineradicable feature of life. Illuminating unreason at a moment when the world appears to have gone mad again, Irrationality is fascinating, provocative, and timely.
