Devin Nunes is a Member of Congress representing California’s 22nd District, located in the San Joaquin Valley. As Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, he led the Republican investigation that helped debunk the Russia collusion conspiracy theory and reveal how U.S. intelligence agencies were abused to concoct and spread the collusion hoax. Afterward, as the Committee’s Ranking Member, he played a leading role in the fight in the House of Representatives against the Democrats’ impeachment of President Trump.

Too hyperbolic? Sadly, though I wish that were the case, it's not really.
This 90-page pamphlet or booklet has just 5 chapters fairly concisely warning of the Left's Trojan horse triumvirate: the DNC, the mainstream media & social media (personally, I would lump the last 2 into the broad category of media & add higher education as the 3rd, but Nunes does include education in his explication of the socialist disinformation campaign). And elaborating on how they control the information, or more accurately disinformation (propaganda) flow.
This is not a pro-Trump booklet, but a pro-American one. As Chapter 1 "Outside the Swamp" explains, there are powerful forces out there looking to fundamentally transform our nation into one that our Founding Fathers not only wouldn't recognize, but would have soundly rejected - because they knew history well enough, especially with their having lived at the time of the French Revolution, to know the consequences of such thinking, regardless of how good the intentions of the usefully duped populace might have been.
Congressman Devin Nunes is sounding the alarm because there is precious little time remaining for our Republic. The Neo-Marxists who have overtaken the DNC are promising to transform our country & have already tipped their hands on the stark difference between what that will actually look like vs their empty promises.
Nunes knows what it's like to be in the crosshairs of the Neo-Marxists, and their willingness to sacrifice anyone for their cause (except their own selves, of course). Because of that, it's not overly surprising that several of the illustrations of his point in this booklet come from his own experiences with the machinations of that triumvirate.
To quickly summarize the rest:
Chapter 2 "Collusion Delusion" outlines how the investigation into Russian attempts to influence the election (which has long been the case not just for Russia, but also China, Iran & others) was "transmogrified" into the alleged collusion - now proven to be a complete fabrication, yet many people still have no idea - to elucidate the extent to which the Left is willing to go to accomplish its goals
Chapter 3 "The Fake News Complex" connects the dots between the various frivolous ethics charges brought against Nunes, & made so much of by certain media groups, back to the individuals who were behind the manufactured Steele Dossier who had vowed to get back at him. He goes on to compile a list of some of the more egregious, recent examples of likewise inexcusable media manipulation.
Chapter 4 "The Disinformation Funnel" describes how social media, specifically Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, & Instagram, function as the Left's message distribution centers. They're working to insure that the correct info is propagated & doing their best to choke off the undesirable sources.
Chapter 5 "Information Desert" holds California up as the example of what the Left did to Nunes's home state. We can readily extrapolate their fate to our country as a whole.
Many of us already have a pretty good idea of these efforts, but purportedly some 55% of the public never sees/hears any info that contradicts the Left's narratives. It's up to us to try to share it, PERSUASIVELY not aggressively, with any who profess to love this country. [The publisher, Encounter Books, was offering a bulk purchase discount last I saw]
Thank you Congressman Nunez!
P.S. Read in under an hour!
Again, they don't understand for two reasons: 1) A lot of Americans ( Nunez estimates 55 million Americans) only watch the disinformation being provided by the mainstream media (MSM) even when the polls show that only 14% of Americans believe the MSM. 2) It takes a fair amount of time an effort to find the real news and then research and digest it. Many Americans don't have the time or inclination to do it. If I wasn't semi-retired I would be in the same boat!
So when I saw Devin Nunes interviewed on the Dan Bongino Show, promoting this book I paid attention. I'm glad I did! Congressman Nunes purposely kept his book short and to the point ( it's only about 90 pages long). He calls it a broadside, which back in the eighteenth century was a large single sheet used to distribute major news events throughout the colonies. In fact, he points out a broadsheet was used to announce The Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
Congressman Nunes picked the optimal format to explain what is going wrong with our nation and how it got there. I highly recommend this book to all patriotic Americans who have been saying, "I don't understand their logic! How can they be pursuing the destruction of our country?"
This book will connect a lot of dots for you and it will only take you a couple hours to read it. If you don't read anything else, read this book! Please read it before you vote.
BTW, you are going to vote aren't you?
