From Kim Strassel-one of the preeminent political columnists writing today and member of the Wall Street Journal editorial board-comes an insightful, alarming look at how the Left, once the champion of civil liberties, is today orchestrating a coordinated campaign to bully Americans out of free speech.

For nearly 40 years, Washington and much of the American public have held up disclosure and campaign finance laws as ideals, and the path to cleaner and freer elections. This book will show, through first-hand accounts, how both have been hijacked by the Left as weapons against free speech and free association, becoming the most powerful tools of those intent on silencing their political opposition. THE INTIMIDATION GAME provides a chilling expose of political scare tactics and overreach, including:

How Citizens United set off a wave of liberal harassment against conservative politicians The targeting of Tea Party groups by the IRS How Wisconsin prosecutors, state AGs, and a Democratic Congress shut down political activists and businesses The politicization by the Obama administration of a host of government agencies including the FEC, FCC and the SEC Timed to arrive at the height of the 2016 presidential season, THE INTIMIDATION GAME will shine a much-needed light on how liberal governance and the Democratic machine bullies the political process.

The Intimidation Game by Kimberly Strassel is an outstanding book about how we are losing our 1st Amendment right to Freedom of Expression and Freedom of Association. The so called fix to insure that elections are not takeover by "outside interests" and "big business" has morphed into a scheme that is being used to harass people that people that the Left does not like or that do not agree with the politically correct policies of today. Ms. Strassel provides proof of the intimidation game that the Left is playing to rob citizens of their voice in the election process. The harassment of people and companies in California that supported Proposition 8 is the kind of harassment that anyone that supports an issue or candidate that is not liked by the Left. Get ready folks, this kind of harassment is will become the norm if we allow it to happen. The reporting of names and addresses of people who funded opposition to the schemes and candidates of the left will be used to punish them...and that could include you!

Read the book and make up your own mind.

The politics of "Shut-upism" have permeated every aspect of the political and even the scientific world where political consensus is often considered a proven fact.

Our modern day censors "don't want to hear it" and don't want others to know dissenting views, either.

Kimberly Strassel's excellent book provides an overwhelming amount of facts, history and data. I expect the enemies of free speech to do everything they can prevent people from reading it.

Kudos to the library for ordering 3 copies. I imagine there was quite a battle behind the scenes there!
