In the tradition of Theodore White's landmark books, the definitive look at how Donald J. Trump shocked the world to become president! From Roger Stone, a New York Times bestselling author, longtime political adviser and friend to Donald Trump, and consummate Republican strategist, comes the first in-depth examination of how Trump's campaign tapped into the national mood to deliver a stunning victory that almost no one saw coming. In the early hours of November 9, 2016, one of the most contentious, polarizing, and vicious presidential races came to an abrupt and unexpected end when heavily favored presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton called Donald J. Trump to concede, shocking a nation that had, only hours before, given little credence to his chances. Donald Trump pulled the greatest upset in American political history despite a torrent of invective and dismissal of the mainstream media. Here is the first definitive explanation about how the "silent majority" shifted the election to Donald Trump in reliable Democratic Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan, thus handing him the presidency. Stone, a long time Trump retainer and confidant, gives us the inside story of how Donald Trump almost single-handedly harnessed discontent among "Forgotten Americans" despite running a guerrilla-style grass roots campaign to compete with the smooth running and free-spending Clinton political machine. From the start, Trump's campaign was unlike any seen on the national stage - combative, maverick, and fearless. Trump's nomination was the hostile takeover of the Republican party and a resounding repudiation of the failed leadership of both parties whose policies have brought America to the brink of financial collapse as well as endangering our national security. Here Stone outlines how Donald Trump skillfully ran as the anti-Open Borders candidate as well as a supporter of American sovereignty, and how he used the Globalist trade deals like NAFTA to win over three of ten Bernie Sanders supporters. The veteran adviser to Nixon, Reagan, and Trump charts the rise of the alt-conservative media and the end of the mainstream media monopoly on voter impacting information dissemination. This is an insider's view that includes studying opposition research into Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton's crimes, and the struggle by the Republican establishment to stop Trump and how they underestimated him. Stone chronicles Trump's triumph in three debates where he skillfully lowered expectation levels but skewered Mrs. Clinton for the corruption of the Clinton Foundation, her mishandling of government email, and her incompetence as Secretary of State. Stone gives us the inside word on Julian Assange, Wikileaks, Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, Carlos Danger, Doug Band, Jeffery Epstein, and the efforts to hide the former first lady's infirmities and health problems. Stone dissects the phony narrative that Trump was in cahoots with Russian strongman Vladimir Putin or that the e-mails released by Wikileaks came from the Russians. The grizzled political veteran of ten Republican presidential campaigns from Richard Nixon to Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump explains how Trump's election has averted near certain war with Russia over Syria and the rejection of the neocon policies of the Obama/Clinton Administration. The Making of the President 2016 reveals how Trump brilliantly picked at Hillary Clinton's weaknesses, particularly her reputation as a crooked insider, and ignited the passions of out-of-work white men and women from the rust belt and beyond, at a time when millions of Americans desperately wanted change. Stone also reveals how and why the mainstream media got it wrong, including how the polls were loaded and completely misunderstood who would vote. Stone's analysis is akin to Theodore H. White's seminal book The Making of the President 1960.

“Who is Roger Stone? Shameless right-wing huckster or President Trump's puppet master?”

[Update 1/23/2017: NY Times Review of Books or Book Review, this week has a most interesting article thoroughly trashing/debunking the CIA/Trump report. Well worth a read! And I never thought I'd be recommending that publication!? ]
[Real Fascism: Voting AGAINST the lowering of the costs of medicines, as Sen. Cantwell and Sen. Murray (WA-"D") just did, and supporting the offshoring of American jobs, as those two so-called dems do, and founding the India Caucus in congress to replace American workers with foreign visa workers from India, as our former congressman-for-life, faux progressive, Jim McDermott did!]
Although I have never voted for a republicon in my life [and gave up on those phony crats many years ago], after hearing President Trump's little talk to the CIA, in his second day in the presidency, I am feeling quite remorseful that I didn't vote for him!
Anyone who threatens the CIA just into his presidency is a unique individual! Looks like the time for major RIFs in the CIA, NSA, DIA, FBI, et cetera!
Let the good times roll . . . .
[But I am glad there are no little Mezvinsky children running around on the White House grounds - - already plenty of criminals to go around.]
