The Corruption Chronicles: Obama’s Big Secrecy, Big Corruption, and Big Government By Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch
JULY 23, 2012
(Washington, DC) – In THE CORRUPTION CHRONICLES: Obama’s Big Secrecy, Big Corruption, and Big Government (Threshold Editions; July 24, 2012; Hardcover; $26.99), Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton outlines why Barack Obama aptly takes the top spot among Washington’s Most Corrupt – from his flouting of federal law and the Constitution to his (ALLEGED) terrorist ties, his penchant for government con games, and threats to election integrity.
Judicial Watch, America’s largest non-partisan government watchdog, investigated the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. It is the grassroots group that helped impeach Bill Clinton and took the Bush White House secrecy all the way to the Supreme Court. Since the beginning of the Obama administration, Judicial Watch has filed over 800 open records demands and over 80 lawsuits, including a successful fight over the secret Obama White House visitor logs and ongoing legal battles over the Fast and Furious scandal.
THE CORRUPTION CHRONICLES comprehensively highlights how the Obama administration, which promised to be one of the most transparent, could prove to be the most secretive in a generation. The book exposes the inside facts that the Obama White House has desperately fought – sometimes in court – to keep from the American people.
ALLEGES Judicial Watch has unearthed the truth behind such high-profile issues as the bailouts, Obamacare, Guantanamo, Obama’s true ties to Bill Ayers and to the Black Panthers voting intimidation scandal, and the Constitution-defying government czars. In addition, Fitton reveals President Obama’s personal war against FOX News, his real link to ACORN, and his radical Chicago connections. Through scores of smoking-gun government files, some replicated here and many unearthed after lengthy court battles, Fitton also discloses the facts of the Obama-backed $535-million loan guarantee to Solyndra, promoted by the president as a model for taxpayer-financed economic recovery – only months before its disastrous bankruptcy filing.
Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch are proof that change can be brought about through grassroots action – even if the opponents compose the very top of our federal government, from the president and Congress to the judiciary. THE CORRUPTION CHRONICLES makes clear that the government can be held accountable while illustrating the desperate need for checks on the current and any future administration.
As the Judicial Watch motto goes: “Because no one is above the law!”
