"A blazing flamethrower of truth, Michael Savage pulls no punches and goes right for the jugular with facts, not vacuous hyperbole."
—Ted Nugent, Washington Times

Michael Savage, the mega-popular radio host and New York Times bestselling author of Trickle Up Poverty, offers an explosive election-year call to arms to retake the White House from the clutches of tyranny and pre

This book delivers powerful punches, Savage style. Another home run for the hugely popular conservative talk-show host. This guy doesn't mess around nor sugar coat anything. He packs in a boatload of exceptionally well-documented evidence and examples as to why another term of the Obama Administration would be extremely detrimental to this country.

Savage is thorough, articulate, to the point. He outlines the many reasons why this administration is corrupt and incompetent. When the main-stream me

Sometimes I think Michael Savage is the only person in this country completely unafraid to speak out, no matter how unpopular his particular opinions may be. This book is must read for anyone fed up with the current state of affairs in this country. It you think it is completely anti-Obama, think again. There are many players at work here, and Savage holds them all accountable.

I am grateful for people like Michael Savage who has the courage to speak up against the current meglomaniac tyrrant in the Whitehouse and his band of nefarious henchmen. Well written with clear, concise arguments and a dash of the Savage wit. Read the book, get the facts and vote wisely in November.
Nicely done Michael Savage - keep up the good work. Save America!

Why I picked it up: I’m writing this the summer before the 2016 elections, and I wanted a better understanding of the support behind Trump and conservatism in general.

The short take: Savage apparently specializes in alarmist polemic with a strong dose of conspiracy theory. His take is that Obama (with George Soros behind him) is setting up the downfall of the U.S. as a world power and ensuring a decrease in personal liberty for its citizens.

The longer takes: I do have a better understanding of s
From the beginning, the book attempts to lure the reader into accepting Obama's shortcomings and abuses of power. The facts presented do need to be checked out, since some of the accusations and suppositions are quite alarming. Another issue which was unnerving, however, was that Savage's own ego appears to be in conflict here, with Obama's.
In Trickle Down Tyranny, Savage spends a good deal of time taking Obama’s administration apart, in order to expose his underlying socialist agenda. He conce

An eye-opening must read for every American!

I have been listening to and reading Michael Savage's books for years now, though to be honest, it was his books on science and nutrition that intrigued me initially.

This book was a complete surprise, for much of the information contained therein was not only well-researched, it was well-written and insightful. Not just another "let's bash the current political party in office" book, 'TDT' gives the reader a comprehensive list of how to fix the problem

This book was written and published before the 2012 presidential election, and Savage presents scenarios about what to expect if Obama is re-elected, based on the President’s performance and behavior in his first term. The author feels (and I agree) that there has been a shift over the years to a tyrannical, powerful, controlled government, and this President (who DID end up being re-elected) continues with his activities of slowly restricting our constitutional freedoms. You can sense the anger ...more

Simply shocking and unbelievable what is happening in this great country: tyranny and corruption at the highest levels in our government. Quite frankly, this book was hard to read as it made me angry with how fast we are headed to a 2nd rate status in so many areas of influence and a nation. There are a few points in the book where I would have liked to have the "other side's" story. I do for the most part feel that Michael Savage is dead-on in his "pull-no-punches" style of writing. ...more

Michael Savage is his hard hitting self in this latest book. He lays out a plan to follow for the next President. He feels that if Obama is not beaten then America is all down hill from here. He is right on target with most of his suggestions. This is an important book to add to your knowledge base. It is up to us,"We The People" to insist our elected officials do the right thing. This is one of those books all should read.

Michael Savage pens an indictment of Oboma and his administration charging that they are circumventing the US Constitution to create a world socialist government. While the charges might be true is uses generalizations and flimsy evidence. Right or wrong, the reader has food for thoughtful conteplation.

A well annotated, colloquially written, compendium of President Obama’s, his administration’s and staff’s overreaches of authority and instances of ignoring the US constitution, and law. Perhaps a bit acerb and vitriolic, but easy to read and understand.

I'm a staunch conservative. I tried to make it through this book, and I agree with some of the points made, but it came off as a bit too much global conspiracy stuff for me. Just couldn't keep listening.

Started this one as a counterpoint to the more center-left books I've been reading lately. My mistake. What garbage. This guy is clearly unserious.

Read Trickle Down Tyranny!
You will be amazed at what our Congress and President has and is doing to our country without your knowledge!
Fear-monger, griping mud-slinger, hateful trouble maker. Nothing positive from this man. Don't buy the book to line his pockets with gold. (BOOKNUT22)

“Barack Obama is elected for another four-year term, he’ll be president for life. He’ll be the new Hugo Chavez. He’ll do away with the two-term limit and win the 2016 election with 90 percent of the vote. We have less than six months to make sure this doesn’t happen.” 3 likes
“Economies can be rebuilt, armies can be repopulated, but once a nation’s pride is gone it can almost never be restored. The loss of a nation’s honor is something not even centuries can repair. The next president must love America. The next president must embody unequivocally everything that is good about this country going back to its founding. The next president must be the exact opposite of Barack Obama. He must be a man of high character and strong commitment to American values, because he will be facing problems and issues that no U.S. leader has had to face since the years leading up to World War II. In the late 1930s—only a few years before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor—our economy was still trying to recover from the Great Depression in the face of the policies of a big-government president, our military had been depleted, and our enemies were gathering strength and threatening war on many fronts.” 1 likes
