Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of Aug. 17, 2020:
- "BLITZ: Trump Will Smash the Left and Win" by David Horowitz (Humanix Books). The bestselling conservative activist chronicles "the brutal battles, bitter backlash, and leftwing lies President [Donald] Trump has faced as Democrats repeatedly try to sabotage his presidency." He says the "effort to remove and destroy our duly elected President may be the greatest challenge America has faced since the Civil War." Despite the turmoil, Horowitz believes Trump will "steamroll this opposition in November" and explains how he'll achieve it. The book is a New York Times bestseller. (Nonfiction)
- "Uprising: Who the Hell Said You Can't Ditch and Switch? — The Awakening of Diamond and Silk" by Diamond & Silk (Regnery). The political pot-stirrers and Newsmax TV hosts — real names: Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson — tell how they overcame poverty, dumped their Democratic Party affiliations, joined the Republican Party, and threw their support behind Trump. The publisher says the book will act as "a rallying cry for tens of millions of Americans who are tired of being told what to think and whom to vote for. Theirs is a story that defies the left's narrative and that the mainstream media refuses to acknowledge, accept, and respect." (Nonfiction)
- "Reaganland: America's Right Turn 1976-1980" by Rick Perlstein (Simon & Schuster). The veteran political journalist chronicles how conservatism took control of American political power. In late 1976, Ronald Reagan was dismissed as a man without a political future: defeated in his nomination bid against a sitting president of his own party, blamed for President Gerald Ford's defeat, too old to make another run. According to Perlstein, Reagan's comeback was fueled by fundamentalist preachers and former segregationists reinventing themselves as militant crusaders against gay rights and feminism; business executives uniting against regulation in an era of economic decline; and a cadre of secretive "New Right” organizers deploying state-of-the-art technology, bending political norms to the breaking point. Backed by a reenergized conservative Republican base, Reagan ran on the campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" — and prevailed. (Nonfiction)
- "The Permanent Coup: How Enemies Foreign and Domestic Targeted the American President" by Lee Smith (Center Street). Smith calls the impeachment of Trump and attempt to remove him from office part a four-year-long plot to doom his presidency. But in their zeal to topple Trump, the author says, Deep State conspirators unwittingly revealed the origins of the anti-Trump operation and exposed corruption at the very highest levels of the Democratic party — including former Vice President Joe Biden and his boss, Barack Obama. An investigation by Smith, identifying crimes and abuses committed by senior U.S. officials, was later confirmed by a major Department of Justice report. (Nonfiction)
- "The Great Devaluation: How to Embrace, Prepare, and Profit from the Coming Global Monetary Reset" by Adam Baratta (Wiley). The investment expert argues that the real crisis facing the world today is not the coronavirus, its government debt, and deficits. Governments are now left with no choice but to spend more than they make, borrow more than they can ever repay, and devalue their currencies to cover it all up, says the author, who says the warning signs for a great devaluation are all there, including asset bubbles, explosive debt, social inequality, and political tensions. He also offers a "road map for what to expect and how to profit during the next, tumultuous decade." (Nonfiction)
