The Jerry Doyle Show is the seventh largest syndicated radio show in the country with affiliates in 240 markets reaching 3.5 million listeners each week. From his childhood in Flatbush, Brooklyn, his career in aviation, to his time on Wall Street and departure to Los Angeles to become one of the lead actors on the Emmy Award-winning hit show Babylon 5, then stepping into the political arena as the Hollywood Republican Nominee for Congress in the 2000 election, and now as a talk radio host, Jerry Doyle’s experiences from career to career and coast to coast have molded his political opinions and made him one of the most popular radio hosts in the country. Now, with Have You Seen My Country Lately?, Doyle tackles the tough political issues our country is facing with his independent views and trademark wit.Doyle addresses what needs to be done to get America back on the road to liberty and prosperity. The book explores the financial crisis, analyzing the anatomy of an auto industry takeover, exploring American sovereignty, and the 1960s radical politics that are alive and well in our government today. Using humorous anecdotes from his colorful life, Have You Seen My Country Lately ? features chapters, “Smoke for the Children,” “Economic Fascism,” “TARP This,” “Drain the Political Swamp,” and “You’re Not Someone Special.” Doyle delves into the absurdity of government policies, while bringing key issues to light and offering his solutions on how we can bring about the changes we really need.

Crisis? What crisis? How powerful corporations make a killing out of disasterAward-winning journalist Antony Loewenstein travels across the US, Britain, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Haiti, Papua New Guinea and Australia to witness the reality of Disaster Capitalism—the hidden world of privatized detention centers and militarized private security, formed to protect corporations as they profit from war zones. He visits Britain’s immigration detention centers, tours the prison system in the United States, and digs into the underbelly of the companies making a fortune from them. Loewenstein reveals the dark history of how large multinational corporations have become more powerful than governments, supported by media and political elites.
