Michael Signer was the idealistic citizen-mayor of Charlottesville, hoping to use values such as civility and prudent governance to help guide his community through local issues--such as what to do about controversial Confederate statues. Instead, he found himself in the eye of a "perfect firestorm," as his community came under siege in a coordinated campaign by the alt-Right.
Cry Havoc is a compelling narrative of events on-the-ground in Charlottesville , set in a larger context of what it means for a country struggling to find its way through the sturm und drang of the Trump era.
Signer provides invaluable insight into how a democratic society under fire can respond to challenges such as: Reconciling free speech and the right of assembly with the need for public safety, in a time of rising extremism. The intensification of extremes on the right and the left, consuming values of pragmatism and compromise and even facts themselves. The widespread disaffection with institutions and a democracy that seems to be faltering and turning on itself.
The failure to deliver positive measures to address a legacy of systemic racism through our political language, our built environments, and our public policies.
An Internet and social media unleashing our darkest demons and organized hatred that we are ill-equipped to disrupt. Signer's "you are there" account will have readers asking "Well, what would I have done?
This book provides insight and inspiration for how we can individually and collectively rise to the challenge. Little Kingdoms: The Counties of Kentucky, Robert M. Kentucky's counties though theoretically provinces of the state were in reality powerful semi-sovereign entities during the latter half of the 19th century. Their positive accomplishments were many. Government funds were wisely invested in internal improvements, road construction, law enforcement, tax collection, and relief of the poor.
Keen competition for county offices, placed on an electoral basis by the Constitution of , brought added vitality to Kentucky's uniquely intense political life, and the official day on which the county courts met continued to be the foremost social and economic day of the month. Similar ebooks. Pete Buttigieg. Christopher C. Horner tears the cover off the Left's manipulation of environmental issues for political purposes--and lays out incontrovertible evidence for the fact that catastrophic man-made global warming is just more Chicken-Little hysteria, not actual science.
He explains why, although Al Gore and his cronies among the media elites and UN globalists endlessly bleat that "global warming" is an unprecedented global crisis, they really think of it as a dream come true. It's the ideal scare campaign for those who hate capitalism and love big government. Haunani-Kay Trask. This revised work includes new material that builds on issues and concerns raised in the first edition: Native Hawaiian student organizing at the University of Hawai'i; the master plan of the Native Hawaiian self-governing organization Ka Lahui Hawai'i and its platform on the four political arenas of sovereignty; the Hawai'i declaration of the Hawai'i ecumenical coalition on tourism; a typology on racism and imperialism.
Brief introductions to each of the previously published essays brings them up to date and situates them in the current Native Hawaiian rights discussion. Dan Pfeiffer. From Obama's former communications director and current co-host of Pod Save America comes a colorful account of how politics, the media, and the Internet changed during the Obama presidency and how Democrats can fight back in the Trump era.
How had Donald Trump won the White House? How was it that a decent and thoughtful president had been succeeded by a buffoonish reality star, and what do we do now?
Instead of throwing away his phone and moving to another country which were his first and second thoughts , Pfeiffer decided to tell this surreal story, recounting how Barack Obama navigated the insane political forces that created Trump, explaining why everyone got wrong, and offering a path for where Democrats go from here. Pfeiffer was one of Obama's first hires when he decided to run for president, and was at his side through two presidential campaigns and six years in the White House.

BIG, HOT, CHEAP, AND RIGHT by Erica Grieder | Kirkus Reviews
Similar assertions have often been attributed to Barry Goldwater. Some of the inspiration for such expressions may lie in "The Criminality of the State" by Albert Jay Nock in American Mercury March where he stated: "You get the same order of criminality from any State to which you give power to exercise it; and whatever power you give the State to do things for you carries with it the equivalent power to do things to you. This was a signature phrase of Ronald Reagan — he used it dozens of times in public, although he was not the first person known to use it.
When Reagan used this phrase, he was usually discussing relations with the Soviet Union and he almost always presented it as a translation of the Russian proverb "doveriai, no proveriai". See also Trust, but verify at Wikipedia. Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican. George [H.
Bush] brought his ne'er-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. And they know it very, very well. Miami was a few years late to the gourmet donut party -- The Salty Donut was the first gourmet shop in Miami-Dade County when started operating out of a trailer in before moving onto more permanent digs. But showing up on Miami time isn't so bad when you've got a lineup of donuts like these guys. Owners Andy Rodriguez and Amanda Pizarro traveled the country trying a bunch of the places on our last list of best donuts shops, brought their inspirations to chef Max Santiago, and created this menu that's got Miamians waiting in line for something other than bottle service.
Highlights include double-chocolate gluten-free donuts that taste more like Ho Hos than health food, and "spiked" donut holes, stuck with booze-filled pipettes that effectively turn your dessert into a hand-held cocktail. And, of course, the people who managed to turn a donut into an inside-out version of eggs Benedict by stuffing a poached egg, ham, and hollandaise sauce into a goddamn Malasada donut. That would be the folks at Sidecar, which seems to be in a contest of one-upmanship every month with its rotating daily flavors, which range from delicious standards like birthday cake and red velvet but sometimes, just sometimes, transform into some sort of mutant masterpiece.
For purists, they also make a hell of an old fashioned and other standards. For a sturdy breakfast, order the Mac Rib, which arrives topped with hefty portion of ribs, a scoop of mac-and-cheese, and a small grilled cheese for good measure. Got a sugar craving? Scratch made using a brioche-like dough base that gives the donuts an airy, pastry-like quality that some fans have been known to describe as "ethereal" or other modifiers so profane in their expression of delight that we can't print them here.
They're really, really good, is the point. The flavors run the gamut from more boundary-pushing options like orange cardamom poppy seed to a simple but impossibly perfect raspberry filled number.
