The view that America is on a dangerous path dominates this week’s Newsmax Rising Bestsellers. In the first, a renowned investigative author warns that the country is in a hot war with China, and losing. The second one reminds that today’s dangerous push toward globalism is nothing new. A third is a warning that the push for ESG investing is a roadmap to the bottom, and in the fourth, a popular TV psychologist charts a path out from the division America finds itself in today. The fiction selection takes the reader back to pre-war Nazi Germany in a compelling historical tale.

Played: The Games of the 1936 Berlin Olympics,” by Glenn Allen & Richard Kaufman (Independently published)

This is a historical novel centered on real events and real people who made headlines nearly 90 years ago. Adolph Hitler wanted the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games to be a showcase for the superiority of the new German Aryan youth, and his politics and human rights violations prompted calls for an American boycott of the games. But U.S. Olympic Committee President Avery Brundage didn’t care about politics. He only wanted to send America’s best to Berlin — black, white, Christian or Jew, he didn’t care, as long as they performed. “A brilliantly written, absorbing book which puts the full impact of the ’36 Olympic games — and its aftermath — into proper perspective,” New York Times bestselling author Erik Sherman wrote. “Seldom does a book immediately draw you in like this one does. An important book about a critical time in world history.” [Fiction]


Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans,” by Peter Schweizer (Harper)

This is another instant No. 1 New York Times bestseller for Peter Schweizer, who argues that America is not in a cold war with China — the war is hot and getting hotter, and the body count is all one-sided — Americans. Meanwhile Washington sits around twiddling its collective thumbs. “Blood Money” is the result of two years of investigation by the author and his team, going through a trove of restricted Chinese military documents, data-mining reams of U.S. financial records, and tracking America’s own political leaders’ investments and family businesses. “This book is a real eye opener. As other reviewers have said……read this book……read what is really going on in this country and around the world,” said Karen Greer, reviewing for GoodReads. “I suspected some of what I read but this author researched and has the facts in print. This book is a reality check. It should be required reading for everyone.” [Nonfiction]


A Patriot's History of Globalism: Its Rise and Decline, by Larry Schweikart (War Room Books)

No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Larry Schweikart (”A Patriot’s History of the United States”) demonstrates here that there’s very little under the sun that’s new, including calls for a one-world government — globalism. Attempts were made after Napoleon’s 1814 defeat, and a hundred years hence after World War I. Today, the World Economic Forum renews the call, with the claim that once a one-world government is established, we will own nothing and be all the happier for it. But just like previous efforts, this latest one is thankfully in decline. “This is an excellent account of the American experience to date,” wrote Anwar Perry for Amazon. “It has opened my interests in so many different areas of American history that I am overwhelmed with books to read. It is true that if you don't know the mistakes of the past, they will be repeated over and again. Look at today.” [Nonfiction]


THE RACE TO ZERO: How ESG Investing Will Crater the Global Financial System,” by Paul Tice (Encounter Books)

ESG investing — investing in companies based upon their adherence to subjective “sustainable” environmental, social and governance policies, is being promoted by the United Nations and individual sovereign governments, and has become all the rage recently by the left. But author Paul Tice makes a compelling case that not only is it all nonsense, it could crater the international financial markets. Manhattan Institute senior fellow Mark Mills says in “Race to Zero,” "Paul Tice delivers a body-blow to the predations of the ESG-industrial-complex." “Sustainable investing has become a religion for many on Wall Street,” the author wrote. “Hopefully, I am not the voice of one crying in the wilderness for long when it comes to speaking out about the dangers posed to the financial markets by ESG.” [Nonfiction]


We've Got Issues: How You Can Stand Strong for America's Soul and Sanity,” by Phillip C. McGraw Ph.D. (Threshold Editions)

If the name Phillip C. McGraw doesn’t ring a bell, the name “Dr. Phil” probably will — it’s what he’s best known as, someone distinguished for giving brutally honest advice to those who need it. In “We’ve Got Issues,” the author and TV talk show host tells readers how to return to te core American values of self-determination and self-governance. In a nation under attack by extremists who foster dissent and division, Dr. Phil offers practical strategies to restore America’s collective mental health. “McGraw offers a compelling call to action for mainstream America to reclaim its voice amidst growing extremist threats,” wrote book reviewer Kiefer Jones. “With practical strategies and a no-nonsense approach, he navigates urgent national concerns, advocating for unity and mental well-being. McGraw empowers readers to resist division and promote more civil society through his insights and 10 principles for societal health.”  [Nonfiction]
