America Must Not Be for Sale

Written by 

America for SaleJerome Corsi cranks out books almost as readily as the U.S. government cranks out deficits and dissimulation. But there the parallel ends — what Corsi cranks out, including his latest book America for Sale, are a benefit and are well worth the cost. His 2007 bestseller The Late Great USA upset some of his fans because its title amounted to a dour conclusion. Yet, in its final pages, the book did offer a few suggestions for action to keep alive a very ill U.S.A.

Barack Obama wasn’t even elected in August 2008 when Corsi, a Harvard University Ph.D., issued The Obama Nation, an alarmingly detailed portrait of the man who, only a few months later, won election to become the 44th President of the United States. That unflattering portrayal of Obama must have caused a bit of apoplexy at the New York Times when it shot up to Number One on the newspaper’s best-seller list.

John Kerry will remember Jerome Corsi as the co-author of Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry. That 2004 book, a devastating review of the Massachusetts Senator’s supposedly heroic military exploits, played a role in Kerry’s failed presidential run. There are several other books issued by this prolific author.

Like his 2007 offering, America for Sale is another wake-up call, but it does not suggest hopelessness in its title. Chock full of bad news about what is being done to our country by the swarm of destroyers who dishonestly call themselves Americans, this new book carries the encourag ing subtitle Fighting the New World Order, Surviving a Global Depression, and Preserving USA Sovereignty. In other words, there is hope, and the author provides a listing of many steps any citizen can take to preserve our nation and keep freedom alive. In fact, its Part III presents a full 60 pages of how to go about accomplishing all of the goals listed in the subtitle.

Corsi wastes no time getting to the point. In his brief Introduction, he states that the global economic crisis that began in 2008 is being deliberately manipulated to create “a government-managed economy.” His initial choices for condemnation as culprits include World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, and current Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. The current Treasury Secretary’s record as head of the Federal Reserve’s New York branch should have disqualified him for any elevated post. But Geithner’s past association with Kissinger Associates, his service under Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers in the Clinton administration, his “deep ties to Obama,” and his insider status as “an active member of the Council on Foreign Relations” made him an ideal choice for imposing socialism on our nation.

America for Sale points out that globalists offer only “a one world government and a one-world currency” as the solution to the economic malaise infecting our nation. It points out that government interference in energy production is a major contributor to the economic downturn but claims, with evidence to back it up, that not only the United States but the rest of the world “will never run out of oil.” The book indicts President Obama for “back-tracking” on his promises to scale back NAFTA, continuing the Bush-era drive to create a North American Union, adding substantially to sovereignty--destroying national indebtedness, and making the Bush administration’s destructive policies relatively puny by comparison.

The book’s Chapter Seven, “The Plan to Destroy the Dollar,” departs from the oft-supplied claim of most of the nation’s “experts” that bad decisions are being made by well-meaning people. 

Unlike recent works issued by others, Jerome Corsi’s newest book isn’t selling anything. In his newest book, unlike the others, he calls for closing down the Federal Reserve, NAFTA, CAFTA, WTO, IMF, World Bank, and IRS. He even recommends exiting the United Nations. And his calls for securing the borders, declaring state sovereignty, ending bailouts, and eliminating federal welfare programs, won’t be heard or seen in the mass media.

In its seven strategies for survival, America for Sale offers advice to individuals and families about surviving the looming “economic hard times.” But it then enthuses about “the rise of twenty-first century American patriots” before lambasting both Democrats and Republicans for leading the nation toward globalism. Corsi closes his wake-up call suggesting that the current economic downturn is “worth the pain” if, as a result, the American people rise up and “say NO to the globalists who are doing their best to put America up for sale.”
