INTERVIEW: Author Brad Thor Talks Act of War … and Culture War

July 16th, 2014 - 11:42 am

I’m on this end of the culture. Breitbart was famous for saying “politics are downstream of culture.” It’s not easy, I don’t get tons and tons of mainstream media attention for my books. It’s been growing, but I don’t necessarily know that its been growing because mainstream media has become more open-minded, which you and I both know is not necessarily the case. I think their ratings have been dying. I think they realize they can’t just play to New York and San Francisco anymore, that a big swath of the country is not tuning in anymore to their television programs, and maybe the facts on the ground are forcing them to give more coverage to me.

But it’s not easy to be a conservative in the popular culture. I’m sure if I was a lefty, I would be on these shows all the time and selling three times as many books as I sell. So I always say, I hope people who do believe in the ideas of liberty and limited government will support me and buy my books — because you know, if I kept my mouth shut I could probably sell a lot more books. If I tilted to the left, I could probably sell more books.

But again, my job, I am a steward of the republic. Listen, the “blue state” model has failed. Liberal policies, post-WWII and even before WWII, the Great Society and back even to Woodrow Wilson, it’s a failure. It is a failure. We’re coming up on 18T in debt. Liberal policies are a failure. There’s not a single successful one, and this country needs to be put on a successful track.

Eric Holder, he can stick it where the sun doesn’t shine on any of his legal briefs, when he says that people talking about “taking it back” are talking about taking it back from a black president. This has everything to do with taking it back from a leftist who has absolutely run the nation into the ground. Holder is practicing this new form of racism, using race as a shield, a sword and a shield, and it’s unconscionable.

Steinberg: Thanks for your time Brad. You gave us lots of great stuff here, and Act of War was my first Thor book, finished it up at 2:00 a.m. this morning. I will definitely be pulling up some of your other books this summer.

Thor: Awesome, take care, David.

Pretty smart if you value principle over identity.

Very astute remarks on the politics. And I appreciate his understanding that legal and moral are not the same thing. (By the way, it is a horrible thing that every once in while we have a President, be it a Clinton or an Obama, who destroys the morale of the common soldier.)

Personally, the one thing that makes me question whether that the US will return to its place in the sun is the (approaching) 50% illegitimacy rate. Given that we are not generally talking about common-law relationships, but broken families, semi-families, and non-families, I'm not sure any country could survive that. Perhaps welfare reform is the most important national defense issue the US has.

You really need to have patience with
this product. I am African Amerian with a deep-caramel complexion,
having one of the hardest categories of
skin complexions to treat I have tried a million skin
products and this is the only stretch mark product
I have used that made a NOTICEABLE difference.
It seems to be most effective before or very soon after stretch
marks appear...>>>> http://revitolstretchmarkcream.net/

I've read all Thor's books and have loved every single one of them! I recommend them as a great read to all my friends. The negative comments I read here are obviously from leftist trolls.

Hey, We have three Brad Thor books on our shelve- all hardbound!- because a woman hosting a New Year's party said that he was her favorite author- and her husband's favorite author. They were two very different personalities, but both amazing, good, thoughtful, literate people. I picked one up the next time I saw one- and I was hooked.

They are really entertaining. He talks about realism- okay, yeah, very realistic- but WOW! super-thrilling, very entertaining- highly recommended by me.

Brad Thor grouses about the Left, grouses about Democrats, but attacks Republicans and the Republican Party. How smart is that?

It is quite simple to determine if a country can come back; the status and strength of its currency and banking system. Once a country loses control of its own currency, there is no coming back. There is only managing a kinder, gentler collapse.
When President Nixon, Kissinger and associates created Petro-Dollar system it also set timer ticking to collapse of USD. For a time it was a very profitable arrangement; the USA received hard asset in form of Petroleum for paper it was printing at will.
However the USA was exporting inflation to the rest of the world, this arrangement cannot last. The fact BRIC nations are creating their own IMF and World Bank to isolate damage USD has been leaving in its wake indicates the end is near for USD and as result USA as we know it.
Good writing in these books, very entertaining and thought provoking.
